Nobody Invades Switzerland.

According to the commonly accepted mantra here in the US of A, shouldn't the crime/death rates in Switzerland be through the roof with all these evil guns lurking about?

Somebunny once told me that puns are evil. I hare what they're saying, but I don't agree. Eggspecially because they can be quite clever and make people hoppy.

Herm To Hockeytown

As several of you know, I have a hockey addiction.  Detroit Red Wings. 

Most game days you can find me over at Able to Yzerman, A2Y.  Collectively we call ourselves "The 19"  If you are a wings fan you understand the significance of the number 19.  (Think Yzerman aka "The Captain") Many months ago a scheme was hatched that would bring a young fan from Brazil to Hockeytown.  Money was donated from the 19.  After months of planning by those more capable than I, tonight is the night.  Guilherme Calciolari aka "Herm" is at the Joe watching his first ever hockey game.  Herm to Hockeytown has the whole story.

The Organ-I-Zation is involved with many comps.  Courtesy of the 19 and all their efforts he is enjoying.... 

Visiting the Joe prior to game day, getting gifts!, feted at the Hockytown Cafe, watching the preskate from the bench, being interviewed before the game, being interviewed by Mick & Ken between periods, and going to the dressing room after the game.  100 of the 19 are back in Hockeytown for the fun.

and the cool thing...

The remaining proceeds go to Children's Hospital in Detroit.

The 19...proud to be one.

It's Aloha Friday......

on our VP.....

On Vice President Biden’s profane utterance at the signing ceremony for Obamacare ["This is a big f**n deal"]:
I think he is the man who, perhaps without intending, has given historical context to this presidency. After all, Obama sees himself as a successor to FDR and Truman, so now we have the historical procession: the New Deal, the Square Deal, and the "Big F**n Deal."

Yup. BFD.

Remember this day.  The day socialism took hold in America.  You will need to explain it to your children.  The smarter ones will ask your WTH you were thinking.  Their future is mortgaged, freedom is restricted, hope is gone.  I doubt they will be thanking you.  America, as we have known it died today.

I'm just saying.......
"the Obama brand"   

Branding Brand is the image of the product in the market. Some people distinguish the psychological aspect of a brand from the experiential aspect. The experiential aspect consists of the sum of all points of contact with the brand and is known as the brand experience. The psychological aspect, sometimes referred to as the brand image, is a symbolic construct created within the minds of people and consists of all the information and expectations associated with a product or service.

You knew you had seen it before.  You just could not remember where.

Now you can.

Big Brutha

You knew this was coming, right? I mean surely you understood that becoming a member of the "Grocery Store" club and saving five cents on your Odwalla drinks had a down side, right?

Okay you knew they were compiling dta about what, when, how much, how often you bought Brand X, right?

Good then it will coma as no wsurprise that the government just used that data to find offending salmonella products.  Indeed one goverment worker proclaimed.....

Never before had the CDC successfully mined the mountain of data that supermarket chains compile.
"It was really exciting. It was a break in the investigation for sure," CDC epidemiologist Casey Barton Behravesh said.

Exciting eh?  Mountain of data, eh? But, I am sure it is safe.  How do I know?  Why the bureaucrat told us!

J. Kathryn MacDonald, an epidemiologist with the Washington state Health Department who worked on the salmonella outbreak, such some advocates' privacy fears are unfounded.
"This is not being used as a tool for open-ended trawling through many records hoping to find something," MacDonald said. "The records are treated with the same level of confidentiality as would medical records." 

But of course........

My Favorite E-Trade Commercial...

is the subject of a lawsuit.

Addled brain, drug abusing, moonbat, Lindsay Lohan thinks the commercial refers to her.  Good Lord.

I do not know which is more troubling, that she thought or the attorney that said "You have a case!"

Milka what?!

Monday's Pun(s) !!!

The lights were too bright at the Chinese restaurant so the manager decided to dim sum.
They came out with a GPS device for bird watchers that has tern by tern directions.
Local Area Network in Australia: the LAN down under.

Victor David Hanson skewers the student "protesters" and deftly handles the current budget issue in this soon to be broke (i.e. we already are) State in his recent Works & Days posting.

Protests everywhere…
In general now, University of California students are furious with tuition raises, rioting even at Berkeley. Teachers are angry about cutbacks. State employee unions blast the airways with ads complaining about a scarcity of funds.
So bear with me with a bit.
The cost to attend a University of California flagship campus — room, board, and tuition — is about a third of what is charged by a private, comparable institution in California like Stanford or USC — roughly some $15-20,000 in total costs versus around $50,000 per year. Public higher education is a good deal, in other words.
California public school teachers make on average the highest salaries in the United States, several thousands higher than those in Massachusetts or Connecticut, and about $20,000 more a year than in a place like Maine or Kansas. On average, government employees, state and federal, nationwide make about 50% more (in salary, pension, and benefits) than their counterparts in the private sector. I realize that if one reaches the very top of private enterprise, one can make more than a high-earning state or federal bureaucrat; but, in general, across the spectrum, it is far preferable to work for government, besides the job security, higher pension, and better working conditions.
I won’t quote all the statistics, but again, in general, California employees make considerably more on average than other state employees elsewhere.  The result is that the current furious state employee is, in essence, saying, “All you lower-paid and unemployed taxpayers, now you better listen up: you must pay more taxes, even  beyond the current highest rate in the nation, so that I, the far better paid and pensioned employee than you, can continue unquestioned in my current, far more important job.”
No more juice to squeeze…
On the tax side, California has the highest income tax rates in the country. Its gasoline and sales taxes are also the steepest. Prop 13 limitations keep  the rates of property taxes competitive with other states, but the assessments on property are so high in California that often homeowners pay almost the same as many with lower real rates elsewhere. Some 3,500 Californians, mostly on the higher end of the income spectrum, are believed to be leaving per week, mostly fleeing to low or no-income-tax states. I assume their thinking is something like, “I can save $20,000 a year in taxes and my children won’t be going to public schools that score 46-48th in national rankings of the states in math and science.”

That last option is has looked good to the olde Rumbear for a while now.  Mrs. Rumbear...not so much.  That said, don't look for the address to change anytime soon!


That's what the old fool, Dan Rather used to say when he was trusted to deliver the nightly news.  Now he just says things like Obama "...couldn't sell watermelons if you gave him a State Trooper to flag down traffic".

Holy Jumping...imagine if a white man had said that wait.....hmmmm, okay imagine if a Republican had said that! 

Check out the way Obama supporter Chris "Tingly Legs" Matthews steps in to shut him up.

New Left Same As The Old Left

Jonah Golberg smacks down David Brooks in a post on NRO.  It's a good read in itself..here.

However, one of his readers gets a little more blunt and, frankly, to the point...

Brooks & The Tea Parties Cont'd   [Jonah Goldberg]
This reader has a stronger view:
Jonah, You are too kind.  Brooks’ biggest problem is that a lot of us were alive when the New Left took over the democratic party.  They were &*&*ing communists!  As you know they openly rooted for America’s enemies to win, not only in Vietnam but overall vis a vis the Soviet Union, and they didn’t stop at just rooting they actively colluded with the Soviet Union, Cuba and Communist China.  They didn’t engage in “Street Theater” they engaged in widespread violence.  Remember, the “New” Left got its name because it broke, not with some mythical conservative establishment, but the actual New Deal/Great Society liberal establishment that was based on loyal non-communist progressive liberalism.  The New left rejected all of that in favor of a radical transformation of the United States along socialist, communist lines.  They certainly didn’t have any theory of “innocence” other than the a head nod to the boilerplate of “false consciousness”.  But, like their historian laureate Howard Zinn, Amerika and hence Amerikans were irremediably evil.  That justified the criminal behavior of the left.  They only “salvation” was to join the “vanguard of the proletariat” in it’s then current manifestation.  In doing so you became, by definition, moral and “wise”.  This modern Gnosticism continues to this day and is the exact opposite of what the Tea Party movement stands for.  The reason why the Tea Party loves to mock “the One” so much is they recognize the eschatalogical and gnostic rhetoric and attitudes and they reject it.  They reject it precisely because they know damn well that human beings are flawed and therefore we are not going to be “saved” by the government or any political party and they rightly distrust anyone who gives themselves those airs or who is gullible enough (David Brooks?) to ascribe those powers to someone else.

Update:  This reader corrects the first above, and he's right:

Jonah, your reader with the strong view is incorrect.

The “New Left” was named because it explicitly rejected the “Old Left,” which in America was the Stalinist Communist Party of the USA and similar organizations.

The New Left of course despised and opposed traditional New Deal/Great Society “liberals,” but didn’t consider them to be on the Left at all.

"...he's right:"  Well, he's right to a point.  The "Old Left" was festooned with hard core commies.  So was the "New Left", however, they being "New" understood that to say you were a commie/socialist was a bad thing for public relations.  Hence, the New Left moniker.  Look at us we are "NEW". Same tactics, just a new name.  i.e. same old hooker, just a new dress.

The Maverick is ticked off!!

Hit em hard JD!!

I Call Shenanigans!

Ladies and gentlemen, there is not going to be any reconciliation. None.

Oh there will be lot's of sabre rattling ad navel gazing, but it's not gonna happen. 

For reconcilliation to be an issue you first have to have a bill approved by both the Senate and the House. Right now, the Senate HealthScare bill sits in the House.  For the bill to move forward towards it need to be approved by the House, as is.  Now, there are a lot of objections to the Senate version by House members.  However, we have to assume that Nancy Peelosi and ole president Zero will pull out all the stops to get the need  votes to approve the Senate version.  Hey they hav already given away a judgeship.  Ask Scott Matheson.   They will promise those hapless Democrats that all will be remedied through reconcilliation...just vote yes...NOW! 

So lets assume that the House passes the Senate version.  This is a given in all of the reconciliation scenarios.  The next step is for the bill to go to president Zero, Our hero.  Once it is signed the Senate version of HealthScare becomes the law of the land. 

The next step is for the Senate to use reconciliation to add back in to the bill those options that the House version had.  This is the agreement. This is what was promised to those House Dems for their yes vote. This is where it falls a part

Now if we know one thing about president Zero, it is that he is a liar. You know it, I know it, Joe Wilson knows it.  Ole Zero will talk about reconcilliation.  The Republicans will scream, the public will scream. The Tea Partiers will ...party.  Hue & cry, tumult and rage, dogs and cats sleeping together.  In the end president Zero will mount the podium, clutch his teleprompter and say...."Reconciliation will not work.  The people have spoken and I hear them. Enough is enough."  .....and reconsciliation will end.  Screw you House Dems, I lied.  That's right, Ole Zero will throw the Hose Dems under the bus.  It's the Chicago Way, get over it....


The Senate version remains the LAW OF THE LAND. The White House has health care. 

Game. Set. Match.

Just heartbreaking.

Last Thursday 15 year old Chelsea King went for a run and never came back.  She ran into pure evil in the form of 30-year-old John Albert Gardner II, a registered sex offender who lives in the area.

They found her body in a shallow grave yesterday.

Words fail me.  Prayers to the family.

Lex said it best..."I’m a dead shot, fathers have rights too, and I’d take the weight."

Indeed, I would too...

R.I.P. Ms. King.

Nothing being discussed here. Move along....

That thing that no one has been talking about?  Well president Zero is gonna give a speech on it in an hour.  Still think they have not been talking about it?  Maybe the Dems had a plan going in to that Healthscare Summit?  Maybeeeee???

Michele Malkin is all over it.

(I stole her picture!)

Told You.

Remember in December when president Zero, Our Hero, headed off to Hawaii for his Christmas Break?  Airspace over the islands was severely restricted.  Many operators had to shut down.  We first spoke of this here

Well the bill has come in.  $200,000.00 for the sight seeing tour companies. This is on top of Zero's room and board for the family and friends.  You know that 7000 square foot little abode on the beach on Oahu going for $4K a night.  Of course the friends needed to be nearby so the two houses next door were grabbed up too!

Can't wait to see where he winds up for Easter!!
Monday's Tuesday Pun(s)

Hey!  I was busy......

The young man quit dating the telephone operator because he felt disconnected. Besides, she had too many hangups.
When the prisoner was told by his lawyer that he had gotten a stay of execution, he smiled and said, 'Well, no noose is good noose.'
When the smog lifts in Los Angeles, U C L A.
A thief broke into the local police station and stole all the toilets and urinals, leaving no clues. A spokesperson was quoted as saying,"We have absolutely nothing to go on."

Pa pa pa pa poker face.......
