The building inspector said whoever installed the water pipes was plumb loco.
The museum had a 3-D exhibit depicting a modern funeral parlor. It was a die-orama.
No one ever wants to babysit the naughty atom, they always have to keep an ion it.
I decided that becoming a vegetarian was a missed steak.

Gun Control

I miss Denny Crane.

Operation Togetherness??

How did I miss this??  president Zero is making war in Afghanistan and the troops are moving forward.  Thta's what our troops do, kill people and break things.  We are very good at it.  I wish them all to be kept from harm and peril as they do their job in a hostile land.  We here at the Chronicles support our troops.  I have confidence they will perform despite the abject failure that we have as a Commander in Chief. 


Leave it to Zero, Our Hero to name the fight....Operation Togetherness.  Jeebus.  Must of dug deep in to the Big Book of Battle Plans for that name.

Monday's Pun(s) !!!

Last night I ate Middle Eastern food, and this morning I falafel.
The winter was difficult on the trees, but in the spring they were re-leafed.
We almost got creamed by a milk truck. I was udderly terrified.

USA Wins!!! 

The America's Cup is coming home thanks to the efforts of BMW Oracle and the Golden Gate Yacht Club in San Francisco.

Great race today as BMW came from behind on the weather leg and then ran away hitting 33 knots on the wing leg.

A pro from the Soviet side of the fence explains the process.  Maybe you can relate some of it to the present.  There are four steps....

Takeaway quote:  This is what will happen in the US if you allow all the schmucks to bring the country to crisis.

Fair Sarah

The lovely and talented Mrs. Palin gave a rousing speech over the weekend at the Tea Party get together.   She had the temerity to ask  "How's that hopey, changey stuff workin' out for you?"  The liberal are in full attack mode as is to be expected.  One of the items was a photo showing she had words written on the palm of her hand.  PROOF she is/was a lightweight. 

Yeah right.

One pundit responded pointing out that the hand was a "Redneck Teleprompter".  Ouch!

The best response came from Sarah herself the next day as she was campaigning for Rick Perry down in Texas.

"Hi Mom!"

This woman has her hand on the pulse of this movement.  Whether you hate her or love her, you better not take your eyes off her.
Murtha Dead

Ex-Marine John Murtha is dead.

(Momma always said if you can't say something nice about a person, then say nothing at all.....see below.)  

I rest my case, too.

Super Bowl Ad's

Circa 2005....still good.
Monday's Pun(s) !!!

The man who impulsively got a cat despite his allergies later realized that it was a rash decision.

It's just a curd to me, tofu is over-rated.

I relish the fact that you've mustard the strength to ketchup to me.
33rd America's Cup

High School Heroes....

Friday, February 05, 2010


president Zero, Our Hero, the smartest man ever to be president, slaughters the English language and the MSM's.....they don't care.  Just like when....Bush mispronounced things, here, here, here, and here.  Then there was that Dan Quayle thing years back that everyone overlooked. You probably never heard about that.

Yet when president Zero does it.....we see the power of O. 

I am reminded of Oswald Bates.  Cue the video.....

It's Aloha Friday...... work till Monday!!!

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

Working on de Whaler, Eagle Project at the PL Native Plant Garden, football practice and the Super Bowl...whew!!  Y'all have a SUPER weekend!

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

On the water once again.  Unless the court rules on Alinghi's illegal sails.  Then we can cut right to the trophy being awarded.  

Lawyers in's like a stimulus package all their own. Let the Lawyers, Guns and Money series begin!

It's All About The Chedda.....

Give me chedda or give me nothing at all.

McCain's Right Movement

The failed fighter pilot and veteran of the Keating Banking scandal,  the RINO John McCain is running to the right.  Portraying himself as a conservative is McCain's latest attempt to dupe the right into to believing he is a conservative.  Calling in old debts, he has Our Sarah heading south to get a tan and show up for a photo op.  Why the sudden movement by the olde Maverick??

Our olde pal J.D. Hayworth.  JD's solid conservative credentials have him garnering support on the right.  The Tea Party groups love JD.  McCain...not so much.

Watch this one as another of the olde guard RINO's scrambles to find his base.  Will it be there for him? Let's hope not.  Cause we are all about change....on the right.

Mark Steyn 

Hit's it out of the park...again

Is America set for decline? It’s been a grand run. The country’s been the leading economic power since it overtook Britain in the 1880s. That’s impressive. Nevertheless, over the course of that century and a quarter, Detroit went from the world’s industrial powerhouse to an urban wasteland, and the once golden state of California atrophied into a land of government run by the government for the government.  What happens when the policies that brought ruin to Detroit and sclerosis to California became the basis for the nation at large? Strictly on the numbers, the United States is in the express lane to Declinistan: Unsustainable entitlements, the remorseless governmentalization of the American economy and individual liberty, and a centralization of power that will cripple a nation of this size. Decline is the way to bet. But what will ensure it is if the American people accept decline as a price worth paying for European social democracy.

Go read the rest here.

Thing's that make ya go.......

There's a link up over at Instapundit to an article on the best careers for the next decade.  I surfed on over to check out the list.  Doctor?  Lawyer? Engineers are always on there? Auto Workers?  High Tech Manufacturing? So who else would be on the list...

Federal-Government Manager
Higher-Education Administrator
Corporate Executive Specializing in Global Business Development or Managing Global Workforces
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapist
Immigration Expert
Health-Informatics Specialist
Genetic Counselor
Patient Advocate
Physical Therapist
 Anything striking you about that list? Here's what I see......none of them are making anything.  The #1 is "being" a frickin government employee! If you are not a gubbermint worker you are in a service industry. The USA is not making anything. Go read the whole article.  Be amazed at the rationale for each.

 Jonah Goldberg reports......
The next morning, the clock radio in his room goes off and he hears the same radio show he'd heard the day before, complete with a broadcast of "I Got You Babe" and the declaration, "It's Groundhog Day!"

Punxsutawney Phil came out of his hole and saw the recently released budget and ran back in.  Six more weeks of winter... and three more years of president Zero.
