Stanley Cup Finals

Pravda See's It... We Don't.

Jeebus......... even the commies see what's happening to our country.

It must be said, that like the breaking of a great dam, the American decent into Marxism is happening with breath taking speed, against the back drop of a passive, hapless sheeple, excuse me dear reader, I meant people.

True, the situation has been well prepared on and off for the past century, especially the past twenty years. The initial testing grounds was conducted upon our Holy Russia and a bloody test it was. But we Russians would not just roll over and give up our freedoms and our souls, no matter how much money Wall Street poured into the fists of the Marxists.

Those lessons were taken and used to properly prepare the American populace for the surrender of their freedoms and souls, to the whims of their elites and betters.

First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system based on pop culture, rather then the classics. Americans know more about their favorite TV dramas then the drama in DC that directly affects their lives. They care more for their "right" to choke down a McDonalds burger or a BurgerKing burger than for their constitutional rights. Then they turn around and lecture us about our rights and about our "democracy". Pride blind the foolish.

Then their faith in God was destroyed, until their churches, all tens of thousands of different "branches and denominations" were for the most part little more then Sunday circuses and their televangelists and top protestant mega preachers were more then happy to sell out their souls and flocks to be on the "winning" side of one pseudo Marxist politician or another. Their flocks may complain, but when explained that they would be on the "winning" side, their flocks were ever so quick to reject Christ in hopes for earthly power. Even our Holy Orthodox churches are scandalously liberalized in America.

The final collapse has come with the election of Barack Obama. His speed in the past three months has been truly impressive. His spending and money printing has been a record setting, not just in America's short history but in the world. If this keeps up for more then another year, and there is no sign that it will not, America at best will resemble the Wiemar Republic and at worst Zimbabwe.

These past two weeks have been the most breath taking of all. First came the announcement of a planned redesign of the American Byzantine tax system, by the very thieves who used it to bankroll their thefts, loses and swindles of hundreds of billions of dollars. These make our Russian oligarchs look little more then ordinary street thugs, in comparison. Yes, the Americans have beat our own thieves in the shear volumes. Should we congratulate them?

They told me if I voted for McCain the Justice Department would be a political tool.....

I did and it is.

Seems the political hacks appointed by the One have meddled in the prosecution of the two thugs in Philly that were wielding clubs and threatening voters on election day.....they let em go.

Justice Department political appointees overruled career lawyers and ended a civil complaint accusing three members of the New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense of wielding a nightstick and intimidating voters at a Philadelphia polling place last Election Day, according to documents and interviews.

Thugs. Some apparently in suits. Welcome to Barrys world.

Hillary Neutered?

(or "tutored" as we had to say to the dog)

Dick Morris analyzes the conundrum that the Secretary of State finds herself in.

But she is shrinking by the day. Once Obama’s equal — and before that his superior — she now looks tiny compared to the president. She doesn’t look like a president in waiting; she’s more like a senior staff member hoping to rise in the bureaucracy. No longer at the head of a movement or the symbol of rising women all over the world, she has faded into the State Department woodwork. She is much less visible than her predecessors Henry Kissinger, George Schultz, James Baker, Madeleine Albright or Condi Rice. She is even less in the public eye than was Al Haig during his one-year tenure. One has to go back to the likes of Warren Christopher or William Rogers to find a secretary of State as far down the totem poll. This diminished status has got to grate on her and on him. But they are trapped in Obama’s web and cannot easily escape.
Me? Personally I have great difficulty viewing HRH Hillary as a shrinking violet. She'll be back.
It's Aloha Friday.... work till Monday!!!

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

RED WING WEEKEND!!! Stanley Cup Finals Wings vs Penguins on Saturday AND Sunday. It's deja vue all over again. Y'all have a GREAT weekend!

"Get your island fix on the Internet with KPOA!"

We Report, You Decide...

If the following quote by Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor doesn't bother you, just consider the possibilities. Here's what she said:

I would hope that a wise Latina woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a white male who hasn’t lived that life.

Now, just imagine the following quotes:

I would hope that a wise white man with the richness of his experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a black male who hasn’t lived that life.


I would hope that a wise black woman with the richness of her experiences would more often than not reach a better conclusion than a Hispanic woman who hasn’t lived that life.

Words of wisdom, the kind that make ya go hmmmmmmm?!

Got it from Ann. There's more.

20 Years....

That last post got me reminiscing....20 years ago.

So here's the deal.....I flew back to Cinncitucky International. Jump seat out of SFO, if memory serves.... Met up with Gator at the airport. Played golf, loaded up a huge motor home and rumbled north to the race with Gator at the wheel. Race day, had seats between turns 3-4. It was time. Walked forever across the infield to find a payphone. Called a friend in California about some bar results. Passed. Lap #3 at Indy. Don't remember much about the walk back. Smiling to much will do that to you. The rum did flow that day. 10 feet tall and bulletproof.

I was sworn in on June 6, 1989.

20 years...........
Indy 500

It's Carburetion Day!

Known for many years as “Carburetion Day,” and shortened only in fairly recent years simply to “Carb Day,” it refers to the day on which cars qualified for the starting field are given the opportunity to practice in “Race Day trim,” as opposed to the less economical setups required for out-and-out speed during time trials. A major portion of this used to involve adjustment to the carburetors, but even after the introduction of fuel injection in the late 1940s, the original term “carburetion runs” continued to be used. For the record, the stock-block Ford-powered Lotus cars of Jim Clark and Dan Gurney in 1963 were the last to actually use carburetors on Carburetion Day.

The Indy 500 is this weekend. The "Greatest Spectacle in Racing" is truly an event to behold. I was there 20 years ago......GATOR! 20 Years?!! Holy jumpin!
Starting grid here. Castroneves is on the pole but that Rahal kid is looking good!
Memorial Day 2009

Some gave all......

The Bear Clan will remember our heroes, past and present, this weekend. I encourage you to do the same. Carry on.

Hopey Changey

So how' that Hopey Changey stuff working for ya? Can ya feel it yet? Is it everything you wanted? Well, explain this....

Letter from a Dodge dealer
letter to the editor
My name is George C. Joseph. I am the sole owner of Sunshine Dodge-Isuzu, a family owned and operated business in Melbourne, Florida. My family bought and paid for this automobile franchise 35 years ago in 1974. I am the second generation to manage this business.
We currently employ 50+ people and before the economic slowdown we employed over 70 local people. We are active in the community and the local chamber of commerce. We deal with several dozen local vendors on a day to day basis and many more during a month. All depend on our business for part of their livelihood. We are financially strong with great respect in the market place and community. We have strong local presence and stability.
I work every day the store is open, nine to ten hours a day. I know most of our customers and all our employees. Sunshine Dodge is my life.
On Thursday, May 14, 2009 I was notified that my Dodge franchise, that we purchased, will be taken away from my family on June 9, 2009 without compensation and given to another dealer at no cost to them. My new vehicle inventory consists of 125 vehicles with a financed balance of 3 million dollars. This inventory becomes impossible to sell with no factory incentives beyond June 9, 2009. Without the Dodge franchise we can no longer sell a new Dodge as "new," nor will we be able to do any warranty service work. Additionally, my Dodge parts inventory, (approximately $300,000.) is virtually worthless without the ability to perform warranty service. There is no offer from Chrysler to buy back the vehicles or parts inventory.
Our facility was recently totally renovated at Chrysler's insistence, incurring a multi-million dollar debt in the form of a mortgage at Sun Trust Bank.
This is beyond imagination! My business is being stolen from me through NO FAULT OF OUR OWN. We did NOTHING wrong.
This atrocity will most likely force my family into bankruptcy. This will also cause our 50+ employees to be unemployed. How will they provide for their families? This is a total economic disaster.
I beseech your help, and look forward to your reply. Thank you.
George C. Joseph
President & Owner
Sunshine Dodge-Isuzu

So what about California? A reader asks. Ummm, that's a tough one. No, wait, it's not: California is completely, totally, irreparably hosed. And not a little garden hose. More like this. Their outflow is bigger than their inflow. You can blame Republicans who won't pass a budget, or Democrats who spend every single cent of tax money that comes in during the booms, borrow some more, and then act all surprised when revenues, in a totally unprecedented, inexplicable, and unforeseaable chain of events, fall during a recession. You can blame the initiative process, and the uneducated voters who try to vote themselves rich by picking their own pockets. Whoever is to blame, the state was bound to go broke one day, and hey, today's that day!

You know how I voted on the propositions right? That old song was a playing in my mind....No no, No, No no, No.......

Bankruptcy....pull the trigger.
Wings Win!!

3-2 in overtime!!

Let's Go Red Wings !!!!!
This pretty much sums it up.

Fine editorial cartoons for those with discerning tastes
When Did She Know?

(2009-05-15) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, under scrutiny for her changing accounts of when she knew about the CIA’s enhanced interrogation techniques, said today that she was not informed until late 2003 that Muslim terrorists had used passenger jets to kill thousands of people in the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001.

“One of my aides mentioned in passing that she had been to a CIA briefing months earlier about these techniques,” said Rep. Pelosi. “At the time, I thought the discussion was theoretical…that this was something that could happen. It wasn’t until October 2003 that I learned that these methods had actually been used on American soil.”

Wings Win!

Down the Hawks 5-2.

Game two is Tuesday.

7 wins to Cup #12...

Nuff said.
What Next?!

It's impossible to keep up with this many levels of stupidity.

Biden discloses the location of the super secret bunker, Pelosi is water boarding herself, Bary is making friendly with the infidels at Notre Dame, the Governor of that failed state Michigan is in Washington being interviewed for the Supreme Court......'s quite a party

Monday's Pun(s) !!!!

It's official, a new low has been reached.

The fellow died before he was able to write his estranged daughter out of the will. It was a case of death before disown her.

I saw this French movie on TV last night; I think it was about a few people who were less miserable than everybody else.

A hungry traveler stops at a monastery and is taken to the kitchens. A brother is frying chips. 'Are you the friar?' he asks. 'No. I'm the chip monk,' he replies.
I relish the fact that you've mustard the strength to ketchup to me.

Barack Obama Countdown widget brought
to you by

As did Britania fade so shall America? Seems our present allies are starting to have their doubts about the future of our country.

In the preface to a sweeping defense review released Saturday, Australian Defense Minister Joel Fitzgibbon writes: "The biggest changes to our outlook . . . have been the rise of China, the emergence of India and the beginning of the end of the so-called unipolar moment; the almost two-decade-long period in which the pre-eminence of our principal ally, the United States, was without question."

Australia isn't forecasting the end of U.S. dominance soon; the report predicts that will continue through 2030. There are also a few bright spots, such as a stronger India and the emergence of Indonesia as a stable democratic ally.

But without sustained U.S. defense spending and focus on the Asia-Pacific, it's unclear which nation will ultimately dominate the region -- and that could have profound effects on security and trade. The clearest challenge comes from China, which the Pentagon estimates spent $105 billion to $150 billion in 2008 bulking up its forces. Australia also worries about instability among its Pacific island neighbors, terrorism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and emerging threats like cyber war.

Just another great moment brought to you by Democrats.


I got nothing to add....

Good Landing*

As a pilot you learn that the old adage that any landing you can walk away from is a "Good Landing". Of course, facts have a way of messing with old adages. While the photo at the right depicts a Good Landing, observe the primary factor in walking away from this one.

Yup. Porta potties. (more here)
