Starboard Attitude?

Our dear friend, Sir Walter H. Bardarse III sends referred us to the recent musings of his contemporary, T. Coddington Van Voorhees VII. You may recall that young Van Voorhess is a Columnist, for The National Topsider and serves, with distinction, as Membership Chairman, The Newport Club. You should take heed of what these men of letters offer. Mr. Van Voorhees allows in part:

When my late father T. Coddington Van Voorhees VI founded the iconoclastic conservative journal National Topsider in 1948, he famously declared that "Now is the time for all good conservative helmsmen to hoist the mizzen, pour the cocktails, and steer this damned schooner hard starboard." In the 60 years since he first uttered it after one-too-many Cosmopolitans at one of Pamela Harriman's notorious foreign policy black tie balls, father's pithy bon mot has served as a rallying cry for conservatives from Greenwich to Chevy Chase. Today, I say it's time for we conservatives to once again grab the rigging and set sail with the flotilla of the true conservative in this race: Barack Obama.

Trust me, I haven't taken this tack lightly. No Van Voorhees has supported an avowed socialist since great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandpapa Cragmont Van Voorhees lent Peter Minuet $24 and a sack of wampum to swing a subprime mortgage on Manhattan Island. Old dad himself often recounted how, as a lad, he would command the family chauffeur Carleton to drive the Duesenberg down to the Times Square Trans-Lux so he could hiss Roosevelt. But I've taken a good measure of this Obama fellow, and I must say I like the cut of the man's jib.

How can I say this, you ask? One look at this Obama chap is all the answer you need. Suave, tanned, unflappable, Harvard connections; it's obvious that here is a man to the conservative manor born. One imagines him at the helm of the Ship of State, basked in the sunlight diffusing through the seaspray over the bow, like some beautiful rugged Othello from a rapturous Ralph Lauren catalog, calmly issuing instructions to the deck crew in that magnificent mellifluous baritone of his. It's that easy-going, almost effortless grace that has all the A-list conservatives like David Frum and Kathleen Parker whispering Reaganesque in hushed tones. Even Peggy Noonan -- the Grand Dame of Gipperism -- has succumbed to Obama's undeniable conservative charms. Just last month I listened to her wax poetic about the Adonis of Chicago between chukkers at the Newport Club polo tournament final. "Why Peggy, you old dowager," I quipped, "I believe you just had an orgasm."

Indeed. You REALLY should peruse the whole thing, here, of course.
Auf Wiedersehen

Oct. 31, 2008, will go down as yet another dark day in recent aviation history. That’s when Berlin, Germany’s historic Tempelhof Airport will cease flight operations.

What's so special about Tempelhof? Here's an excerpt from a recent article

Most associate Tempelhof with Hitler’s Third Reich, but the fact is that Tempelhof’s history stretches back to the middle ages, when the site belonged to the Knights Templar—hence the name’s “Tempel” root (“Hof” translates to “court”). Prussian kings used Tempelhof as a parade grounds until 1917.

Powered flight began at Tempelhof in 1909, when Orville Wright demonstrated his Model B Flyer. Lufthansa was founded at Tempelhof in 1926, and the airport served as a major air terminal ever since. Under Hitler, Tempelhof’s massive, curved structure was built, but World War II halted construction. During the war, fighter airplanes were built in tunnels beneath Tempelhof.

After the war, Berlin was divided between the allied nations and the Soviet Union. In 1948, the Soviet Union attempted to isolate and starve West Berlin by blocking all land and water routes to the city. The United States, along with the British and French, responded with the Berlin Airlift. This operation used the three air corridors serving West Berlin, transporting food, coal, medicine, and other necessities—yes, including candy—to Tempelhof on an around-the-clock basis. In September 1949 the Soviets relented. A monument was built in front of Tempelhof commemorating the Airlift and its pilots. To this day, the good will toward Americans established by the Airlift endures among Berliners.

History, that's what makes it special.

I'm Voting Democrat!

There, I said it. Why? Gather round kids......

I'm voting democrat because Barbara Walters, Barbara Streisand are my idols (and so is P.Diddy.)

I'm voting Democrat because English has no place being the official language in America.

I'm voting Democrat because I'd rather pay $4 for a gallon of gas than allow drilling for oil off the coasts of America.

I'm voting Democrat because I think the government will do a better job of spending my money than I could.

I'm voting Democrat because when we pull out of Afghanistan and Iraq, I know the Islamic terrorists will stop trying to kill us because they'll think we're a good and decent country.

I'm voting Democrat because it's all right to kill millions of babies as
long as we keep violent, convicted murderers on death row alive.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe businesses in America should not be allowed to make profits. Businesses should just break even and give the rest to the government so politicians and bureaucrats can redistribute the money the way they think it should be redistributed.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe guns, and not the people misusing them, are the cause of crimes and killings.

I'm voting Democrat because when someone with a weapon threatens my family or me, I know the government can respond faster through a call to 911 than I can with a gun in my hand.

I'm voting Democrat because oil companies' 5% profit on a gallon of gas are obscene, but government taxes of 18% on the same gallon of gas are just fine.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe three or four elitist liberals should rewrite the Constitution every few months to suit some fringe element that could never get their agenda past voters.

I'm voting Democrat because illegal aliens are not criminals, are not sucking up resources through government aid, hospital services, education, or social services, but are just people trying to make a better life by coming to America illegally. We can't blame them for that, can we?

I'm voting Democrat because the same teacher that didn't teach my child to read can reasonably educate them about sex.

I'm voting Democrat because my trial lawyer's crippling multi-million dollar lawsuits against doctors, hospitals, drug companies, and HMO's will make health insurance and medicine much more affordable.

I'm voting Democrat because Reverend Wright, Al Sharpton, Louis Farrakhan, and Jesse Jackson will end racism once and for all.

I'm voting Democrat because Christians in the Republican Party are intolerant, theocratic warmongers and atheists like William Ayers have never hurt anybody.

I'm voting Democrat so the at no family member of mine will die in a hospital bed. They will still be waiting in line for Obama's socialized medicine, so they will never actually make it into a hospital bed.

I'm voting Democrat because I like eminent domain and big business and government kicking me out of my home and taking my land.

I'm voting Democrat because everyone knows that raising taxes at the top won't hurt people at the bottom.

I'm voting Democrat because skin color and good oratory skills are more important than judgment and experience.

I'm voting Democrat because protecting barren wasteland is more important than energy independence.

I'm voting Democrat because my college professor told me that America is evil and should give up its place in the world.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that Cuba, Russia, and China should be on the United Nations Human Rights Council.

I'm voting Democrat because I believe that everyone is essentially good -- even people like Ahmadinejad who calls for the destruction of Israel. He just needs a little understanding.

I'm voting Democrat because we should all be forced to drive ugly cars with the horsepower of a riding lawnmower.

I am voting Democrat because I believe in change; although I don't know WHAT the change will be, or HOW it will happen, AND I am pretty sure that I won't WANT to actually change anything I do, but still....I believe in change.

I'm voting Democrat because the government knows how to raise children better than parents do.

I'm voting Democrat because I want the rich to work harder, give me their money, and pay for my services so I don't have to.

I'm voting Democrat because I don't give to charity or do volunteer work and then I complain about how selfish everyone else is.

I'm voting Democrat because I've seen welfare help so many poor people become self-sufficient and upwardly mobile.

I'm voting Democrat because I'm not driven enough to realize my dreams without the government holding my hand the entire way.

I'm voting Democrat because I want America to be Europe's prosthetic limb.

I'm voting Democrat because I think we all should be equal...equally unhappy and unsuccessful.

I'm voting Democrat because life just isn't fair and I deserve what other people have without working for it.

I'm voting Democrat because I like hearing the word "Change" 50 million times in presidential debate, seeing the word on celebrities' t-shirts and bags, on signs outside of million dollar houses, and know that the only change that is going to happen is that I'm going to work 40 hours a week and not even see a penny of my paycheck because taxes will go through the roof!!!.....leaving me with "change"!!!!

I'm voting Democrat because Barack Obama is better than you, and he knows it!

I'm voting Democrat because I like how democrats can cause financial crises' like Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and have the temerity to blame them on Republicans.

I'm voting Democrat because Obama was endorsed by Hamas and terrorist’s endorsements are a must to achieve world peace.

I am voting Democrat since I believe those who are lazy, druggies, high school dropouts, etc. should be entitled to the money I wake up every morning and work my ass off to make!

I’m voting Democrat because it's the COOL thing to do. I'm hip and in the majority.

I’m voting Democrat because I listen to and believe all the celebrities/actors who so passionately want Obama to win because I can't think for myself at all. The same celebrities who WE make rich because we GO SEE their movies and watch their T.V. shows put millions of dollars into their pockets! but...these multi-million dollar celebs are so disheartened by AMERICAN ways and the capitalistic economy we have and the world will come to and end if another Republican comes into office...hmmmmm...

I'm voting Democrat because "Hillary said so"

I'm voting Democrat because of the War on Terror. We have not been attacked once since Sept. 11, 2001, and that was caused by Bill Clinton, but I still don't feel safe.

I'm voting Democrat because communist economics always work. Look how well off the Soviet Union is right now. That wall in Berlin has never looked better.

I'm voting Democrat because I won't be subjected to any criteria for meeting U.S. terrorists and having a cool-aid with any of them, and one last critical factor.

I'm voting Democrat because I agree with Joe Biden, that it really is patriotic to pay more taxes. So I'm going to pay a "direct tax." Instead of wasting time giving it to the government for redistribution, I will give my money to derelicts that loiter outside of liquor stores and methadone clinics. That's where it ends up anyway.

YES WE CAN ... **

They found another relative of the in poverty. WTF? This is a guy making hundreds of thousands a year, wife ordering $450.00 snacks at the Waldorf and the relatives....screw you. These are the relatives he refers to in his books and memoirs.
Used, abused and sent to the slums in Boston. Thanks Barry!

He does not take care of his family and we are asked to believe he will take care of us.......
Yeah right.

I Am Ready.....

Are YOU?

Tuesday. Win, lose or draw, I am ready. The MSM's tell us the One has won, yet the polls are tightening. Pennsylvania is in play. Florida has a high voter turnout, but the One is behind 4% in exit info. Lot's of Dems out there that are not happy with him. Truly a strange season for politics.

That brings me back to the title....
If McCain Palin wins on Tuesday...I am ready.
If McCain Palin loses on Tuesday.....I am ready.

Now we know the lefties are ready to win. Hell, they keep telling us they already have. However, flip that question around........
To you, my liberal, rat bastard, unrepentant terrorist loving, tax raising, white flag waiving, commie/socialist, sympathizing friends I will ask.....
Are you ready to lose?

Me thinks not.

Saw this little ditty in an article on the One.

I wish that were the worst I could say about the man, who has survived nearly two years of campaigning for President without serious cross-examination from either the media or his media-chastened opponents. A man who, should he win the election and serve one term, will have been President of the United States longer than he has held any steady job.

Right Said Fred.....

Two minutes with Fred....

Celebs That Lean Right

Yeah, I'm in there towards the end.....

I think.....
Obama Panic!

Recently, Obama said he wants to expedite loans to small businesses, so he seems to have a clue that they produce much of the country's job growth. Yet his income-tax hike on upper brackets will hit vast numbers of small businesses - they'd face the highest rates they've seen in decades.

Overall, his plan includes some of the most lethal tax increases imaginable, including a jump in the capital-gains rate. He'd expand government spending massively, with everything from new public-works projects to increases in foreign aid to a surge in Afghanistan - plus hand out a token $500 welfare check that he calls a tax cut to everyone else.

Just how low can the markets and economy go? It could be a lot lower - it all depends on the policies of the next president. And, as it looks increasingly likely that Obama will be that man, the markets are casting a vote of "no confidence."

You think if McCain were ahead this argument would not be trumpeted?
It's Aloha Friday...... work till Monday!!!

More Reading...

Hey, don't blame me there is a lot of good stuff out there today!

You can trace the constrained vision back to Aristotle; the unconstrained vision to Plato. But the neatest illustration of the two visions occurred during the great upheavals of the 18th century, the American and French revolutions.

The American Revolution embodied the constrained vision. "In the United States," Sowell says, "it was assumed from the outset that what you needed to do above all was minimize [the damage that could be done by] the flaws in human nature." The founders did so by composing a constitution of checks and balances. More than two centuries later, their work remains in place.

The French Revolution, by contrast, embodied the unconstrained vision. "In France," Sowell says, "the idea was that if you put the right people in charge--if you had a political Messiah--then problems would just go away." The result? The Terror, Napoleon and so many decades of instability that France finally sorted itself out only when Charles de Gaulle declared the Fifth Republic.

What role have the two visions played in the campaign? Sen. John McCain, who is trailing, has by and large embraced the constrained vision; Sen. Barack Obama, who is leading, the unconstrained vision. Asked if Obama represents the purest expression of the unconstrained vision since Franklin Roosevelt, Sowell, himself an African-American, replies: "No. Since the beginning of American politics. This man [Obama] has been a left ideologue for 20 years."

I knew there was a reason I never cared for Plato.
Here's the link.

Must Read

Here's the teaser.....

Contrarian that I am, I’m voting for John McCain. I’m not talking about bucking the polls or the media consensus that it’s over before it’s over. I’m talking about bucking the rush of wet-fingered conservatives leaping to Barack Obama before they’re left out in the cold without a single state dinner for the next four years.

I stand athwart the rush of conservative ship-jumpers of every stripe — neo (Ken Adelman), moderate (Colin Powell), genetic/ironic (Christopher Buckley) and socialist/atheist (Christopher Hitchens) — yelling “Stop!” I shall have no part of this motley crew. I will go down with the McCain ship. I’d rather lose an election than lose my bearings.

The rest is here..., go now.

I hate to say I told you so but.....I told you so.

"Believe me, there is someone in the Obama campaign who is deathly afraid of the 'McCain pulls even or goes ahead' poll." (And in Gallup, it was within 2 percent.) "That Obama strategist knows how much depends on the whole Chuck Schumer and Rahm Emanuel approach with the media to demoralize conservatives, and keep the perception of a juggernaut going. But a day or two of a few bad polls, and that strategy backfires. The conservatives know they've still got a shot at this." [Emphasis added]

We have moved into that gray area of the political season where the polls become increasingly unreliable. In theory they should be seeking clarity. 14 days left, people making decisions and consolidating on one side or the other. That would be common wisdom IF the polls were legitimate. Buttttt everybody has a cause. So the polls gets a little shall we say "gamed" Look at he has The One up by 10 points. Do you really think that a shift of 6-7 points has occurred this past three days? Really? Look at the state by state reports and they show no such lurch. Indeed several states are trending McCain. Check out has been a leaning Obama forever....McCain is now on top there and the state is listed as "to close to call" Ditto for Colorado. What's up with that?

Which brings us to Pennsylvania. Everybody says The One is up by double digits. Okay, why is McCain campaigning so heavily there? I mean wouldn't this be throwing $$ away? Maybe...yet why is Fast Eddie Rendel, the Governor of the state, "worried"? Hmmmmmmm?

Here's the dirty little secret folks.....internal polls. The campaigns need hard data to direct their firepower. Clearly the internals for each campaign are showing something different to the above referenced strategery. That is why you see McCain in places he should not be. That is why Fast Eddie is worried. That is why the One continues to campaign in states where he is up...even "way up".

It's a horse race folks. The Democrats do not want you to think, let alone know, would be contrary to their strategery. YOU have the power to defeat them.

I told you so....

The Great One, F. Lee Levin get's it.
Obama's own internal polling shows him with only a two-point lead in the state. [i.e....Pennsylvania]

Mean Spirited...

Imagine if this had happened to the bus carrying the One...

We learned at this morning’s Stop Obama Rally here that the McCain/Palin Straight Talk Express came through town yesterday. It arrived with a window shattered by a .22 caliber weapon. It had also been hit by an unknown number of paint balls from a paint ball gun or guns. There were reportedly no injuries and neither candidate was on board.

One local man who saw the damage and spoke with the McCain/Palin staffers said the attack(s) had occured in southern New Mexico that same day. The Express is traveling the country independent of the candidates, handing out campaign materials.

But it didn't. Just some mean spirited republicans in a bus with a hole and some paint on it....nothing here...move along.

and AGAIN.

Oil is now at $70.00 per barrel. WHY AM I PAYING $3.32 per gallon at the pump???
Remember when the prices SHOT up we we're told that the per gallon price at the pump was based upon what the poor dealer would have to pay to replace that gallon you just pumped. So....what the hell?

Here's a report from July 2006. Oil was around $70.00 a barrel then....

Weekend update Sunday, July 30th, 2006
Here's the weekend update of the area's gas prices. It looks like competition forced a number of sites down a couple of pennies this weekend.

So where's that extra $.50 cents going??? How's come we are still above $3.00???

An e-mail from a fellow traveler friend of mine started the gears turning in the olde Rumbear brain. Concepts from college long ago squirreled away into the the part of my brain brain labelled "I don't need this crap"

and a real blast from the past.....Antonio Gramsci.

They say those that do not learn from the past are bound to repeat it. Kinda like hitting your thumb with a hammer. It hurts, but sometimes once is not enuff.

GOOGLE or WIKIPEDIA the items above....I can't summarize here (i.e. get your own education, I'm still paying for mine!)

Okay, maybe that was a little harsh...see Jimmy Buffett was in town last nite and the Rumbear got together with him and 12,000 of his close friends and well, "a good time was had". Suffice it to say, it will be a short day here.

Draw your own parallels on the politics of today and what you read. Throw in a little overlay of the Cloward-Piven Strategy and send us a note.


The Wall Street Journal has an article up today touting what the world will see when Barry and his ilk blow in to town in January. Go here to read it all.

Though we doubt most Americans realize it, this would be one of the most profound political and ideological shifts in U.S. history. Liberals would dominate the entire government in a way they haven't since 1965, or 1933. In other words, the election would mark the restoration of the activist government that fell out of public favor in the 1970s. If the U.S. really is entering a period of unchecked left-wing ascendancy, Americans at least ought to understand what they will be getting, especially with the media

Remember though that many of the programs listed in the article will probably get a genorous look from the Maverick. Health care, Unions, Global Warming......Hence my caption...

Orchestrated Crisis?!

It even has a name ........

The Cloward-Piven Strategy of Orchestrated Crisis
American Thinker has the story. here's an exceprt....

In an earlier post, I noted the liberal record of unmitigated legislative disasters, the latest of which is now being played out in the financial markets before our eyes. Before the 1994 Republican takeover, Democrats had sixty years of virtually unbroken power in Congress - with substantial majorities most of the time. Can a group of smart people, studying issue after issue for years on end, with virtually unlimited resources at their command, not come up with a single policy that works? Why are they chronically incapable?


One of two things must be true. Either the Democrats are unfathomable idiots, who ignorantly pursue ever more destructive policies despite decades of contrary evidence, or they understand the consequences of their actions and relentlessly carry on anyway because they somehow benefit.

I submit to you they understand the consequences. For many it is simply a practical matter of eliciting votes from a targeted constituency at taxpayer expense; we lose a little, they gain a lot, and the politician keeps his job. But for others, the goal is more malevolent - the failure is deliberate. Don't laugh. This method not only has its proponents, it has a name: the Cloward-Piven Strategy. It describes their agenda, tactics, and long-term strategy.

The Strategy was first elucidated in the May 2, 1966 issue of The Nation magazine by a pair of radical socialist Columbia University professors, Richard Andrew Cloward and Frances Fox Piven. David Horowitz summarizes it as:

The strategy of forcing political change through orchestrated crisis. The "Cloward-Piven Strategy" seeks to hasten the fall of capitalism by overloading the government bureaucracy with a flood of impossible demands, thus pushing society into crisis and economic collapse.

A Friend Sent This......

To All My Friends, this is long, but very important, please take the time to read it.

This election has me very worried. So many things to consider. About a year ago I would have voted for Obama. I have changed my mind three times since than. I watch all the news channels, jumping from one to another. I must say this drives my husband crazy. But, I feel if you view MSNBC, CNN, and Fox News, you might get some middle ground to work with.

About six months ago, I started thinking ‘where did the money come from for Obama’. I have four daughters who went to College, and we were middle class, and money was tight. We (including my girls) worked hard and there were lots of student loans.

I started looking into Obama’s life.

Around 1979 Obama started college at Occidental in California. He is very open about his two years at Occidental, he tried all kinds of drugs and was wasting his time but, even though he had a brilliant mind, did not apply himself to his studies.

‘Barry’ (that was the name he used all his life) during this time had two roommates, Muhammad Hasan Chandoo and Wahid Hamid, both from Pakistan. During the summer of 1981, after his second year in college, he made a ’round the world’ trip. Stopping to see his mother in Indonesia, next Hyderabad in India, three weeks in Karachi, Pakistan where he stayed with his roommate’s family, then off to Africa to visit his father’s family. My question: where did he get the money for this trip?

Nether I, nor any one of my children would have had money for a trip like this when they where in college. When he came back he started school at Columbia University in New York. It is at this time he wants everyone to call him Barack - not Barry. Do you know what the tuition is at Columbia? It’s not cheap to say the least! Where did he get money for tuition? Student Loans? Maybe.

After Columbia, he went to Chicago to work as a Community Organizer for $12,000 a year. Why Chicago? Why not New York? He was already living in New York.
By ‘chance’ he met Antoin ‘Tony’ Rezko, born in Aleppo Syria, and a real estate developer in Chicago. Rezko has been convicted of fraud and bribery this year. Rezko, was named ‘Entrepreneur of the Decade’ by the Arab-American Business and Professional Association’.

About two years later, Obama entered Harvard Law School. Do you have any idea what tuition is for Harvard Law School? Where did he get the money for Law School? More student loans?

After Law school, he went back to Chicago. Rezko offered him a job, which he turned down. But, he did take a job with Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland. Guess what? They represented ‘Rezar’ which is Rezko’s firm. Rezko was one of Obama’s first major financial contributors when he ran for office in Chicago. In 2003, Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama which Chicago Tribune reporter David Mendelland claims was instrumental in providing Obama with ’seed money’ for his U.S. Senate race.

In 2005, Obama purchased a new home in Kenwoood District of Chicago for $1.65 million (less than asking price). With ALL those Student Loans - Where did he get the money for the property?

On the same day Rezko’s wife, Rita, purchased the adjoining empty lot for full price. The London Times reported that Nadhmi Auchi, an Iraqi-born Billionaire loaned Rezko $3.5 million three weeks before Obama’s new home was purchased. Obama met Nadhmi Auchi many times with Rezko.

Now, we have Obama running for President. Valerie Jarrett, was Michele Obama’s boss. She is now Obama’s chief advisor and he does not make any major decisions without talking to her first. Where was Jarrett born? Ready for this? Shiraz, Iran! Do we see a pattern here? Or am I going crazy?

On May 10, 2008 The Times reported, Robert Malley, advisor to Obama, was ’sacked’ after the press found out he was having regular contacts with ‘Hamas’, which controls Gaza and is connected with Iran. This past week, buried in the back part of the papers, Iraqi newspapers reported that during Obama’s visit to Iraq, he asked their leaders to do nothing about the war until after he is elected, and he will ‘Take care of things’..

Oh, and by the way, remember the college roommates that were born in Pakistan? They are in charge of all those ’small’ Internet campaign contributions for Obama. Where is that money coming from? The poor and middle class in this country? Or could it be from the Middle East?

And the final bit of news. On September 7, 2008, The Washington Times posted a verbal slip that was made on ‘This Week’ with George Stephanapoulos. Obama on talking about his religion said, ‘My Muslim faith’. When questioned, ‘he made a mistake’. Some mistake!

All of the above information I got on line. If you would like to check it - Wikipedia, encyclopedia, Barack Obama; Tony Rezko; Valerie Jarrett: Daily Times - Obama visited Pakistan in 1981; The Washington Times - September 7, 2008; The Times May 10, 2008.

Now the BIG question - If I found out all this information on my own, why haven’t all of our ‘intelligent’ members of the press been reporting this?
A phrase that keeps ringing in my ear - ‘Beware of the enemy from within’!!

Give me a frickin break! CBS? They have NEVER been right, ever. Why are they a news item now? Because they want you to

stop. doing. anything. to. win.

14 points! Zogby, who has nailed it of late, has it a statistical dead heat. Dittos for Rassmussan.

CBS...I call shenanigans! Take em away Officer Barbrady!

Yup, poor Hugh Hefner. Two of his live in blonds Holly and Kendra, have left. Like many of us when faced with similar life predicament's, 82 year old Hugh hiked up his boxers shorts and called for a double.

Meet the twins, Karissa and Kristina Shannon.

Bada bing, bada boom.

Here's the view from near my old residence. Angel Island is on fire in a big way! I have sailed to it, around it, hiked it, biked it and now.....


Oil is now at $79.68 per barrel. WHY AM I PAYING $4.37 per gallon at the pump???

Remember when the prices SHOT up we we're told that the per gallon price at the pump was based upon what the poor dealer would have to pay to replace that gallon you just pumped. So....what the hell? Shouldn't gas be around $2.40 per gallon?

Monday's Pun(s) !!!!

The big city reporter did not impress the Idaho potato farmer, after all he was just a commentator.

Could another name for a tire factory be a tread mill?

Winning candy as a prize is always a sweet victory.

What kind of birds stick together? Vel Crows (Thanks Travis!)
Altitude Above.
Runway Behind.
Avgas in the Truck

What are they? All useless. Like bullets left in a clip.

Which is a lot like the letter here. John McCain was trying to reign in Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Documents prove it. Why aren't they being waived front and center?? Here's a sample...from May 2006. In four weeks this letter will be useless.

I'm with Uncle Rush...we are gonna have to suck it up and drag this dumb SOB John McCain over the line to victory. He ain't gonna do it himself.
Mr. Obama's Neighborhood

Just like you and me?!
HE Played His.

Obamalama sent out his "minions" this past weekend to fan the flames of faux rage over the inane comments of a few at ONE rally. Race! Race has entered the race! Can you believe it? The only one talking about race and rage is the Anointed One and his ilk.

Given the faux outrage over McCain's campaign by an assortment of Obama appendages, and according to this logic that the candidate is responsible for the outbursts of any and all supporters, one would hope then that Obama could get ahold of the more ugly group of his supporters, and take the responsibility for them to cool it—perhaps just a word or two from the Senator about reining in their hate speech to a Sandra Bernhard, or a Madonna, or Whoopi Goldberg, or the hundred or so celebrities in Hollywood who have said some rather creepy things, or to Ludacris, or a warning to Rep. Lewis about cooling the bit about McCain's campaign and the blowing up of little girls.

Perhaps at some point St. Obama might say something like the following: "Our hope and change campaign has naturally raised expectations; but I appeal to all my zealous supporters to refrain from character assassination of my opponents. So please—no more photo-shopping of Sen. McCain's picture, or spreading untruths on the Atlantic Magazine website about VP candidate Sarah Palin's last pregnancy. And, please supporters: do not hack into Gov. Palin's email, and do not swarm radio stations to silence Dr. Kurtz. Nor is there any reason to sue to remove my opponent's ads. And above all, my Acorn friends, do not register to vote those who never exited."

Instead of calls to "get in their face" and talk about bringing a gun to a knife fight, or suggestions of Sen. McCain being "confused" or "losing his bearings" from Sen. Obama, perhaps he might offer just a tiny bit of ethical admonition from on high to restore a sense of civility to this election campaign.

And F. Lee Levin has worked himself into a fury over faux rage from the race playing Democrats.

So, a couple of idiots at a McCain-Palin rally apparently called Obama an Arab or a terrorist, and the entire McCain campaign, Republican base, or whatever, are said to be fomenting racism. And McCain and his advisers are so easily intimidated that they waste 48 precious campaign hours defending themselves against something they have not done. I received a call on my radio show last week from an Obama supporter accusing President Bush and John McCain of being terrorists and mass murderers. And these kind of calls have actually been going on since the beginning of the Iraq war. And in this regard my show is not unique. Yet, where is the outrage? There is none. And are Obama and his campaign responsible for the latest of these outbursts? Come on! What a crock.

Michele Malkin, God Bless Her, spells out the whole nine yards of MSM/Democrat hypocrisy on the matter. Some of these even the olde Rumbear had forgotten!

So, let’s give the tongue-clucking and tut-tutting about “insane rage” and “violent escalation of rhetoric” a rest then, shall we? There’s a bottomless well of it in the backyard of the Paul Krugmans and Frank Riches and Ana Marie Coxes of the world. Look in the mirror.

Just One.

I doth quote the Lumberjack....

Let's see, I'm trying to think of an Obama ally who is not an antisemitic America hater, or a socialist, or a crook, or a terrorist. Help me out here. Could it be that a man who loves his country just couldn't cross paths with other men and women who love America and make some of them his friends? Even, maybe, one of them?

Doo de doo, de doo, de doo ...

Pop Warner, Whalering, a little small boat racing .....Y'all have a GREAT one!

Doo de doo, de doo, de doo ....

"Get your island fix on the Internet with KPOA!"
Listen live to the island sounds from Maui!

They are crooks. Planting the seeds of revolution. Many articles all reach the same conclusion...stealing votes, registration fraud, dead people voting. Surprised? Why?, it's just Chicago politics gone national.

Link to worries

Showing the connection is so easy a Democrat could understand it. (No offense to Cavemen)
But they won't.
Communists Lying?

Imagine that!

Seems that recent Chinese "space" mission was maybe, kinda, filmed in some space we generally call a pool.
Lot's of evidence on the video that was presented to the peoples in the Peoples Republic....not the least of which was bubbles leaving the "spacecraft" and the astronauts referring to “Number one; Number two; Tied it in water; Operation is normal,”


Can't wait till they go to the moon!

Well, well, well....

The presidential race is still too close to call and could come down to the very last weekend before voters decide if they like or distrust Barack Obama, a national pollster predicts.

“I don’t think Obama has closed the deal yet,” pollster John Zogby told the Herald yesterday.

I used to follow Zogby. Heavily relied on his information. He fell out of favor due to his other affiliations. (Brother is a Kool-Aide drinking Liberal amongst other things) Nevertheless he is at his best when he keeps his mouth shut and works the numbers. My take is the race is tight. Certainly closer than the CNN and Gallup would have you believe. Watch the Battleground (Barry +3) and Zogby, of course. Oh and for you intellectuals out there, keep an eye on the Electoral count.

Prediction? My money is on Seabiscuit.
