NO toy for YOU! 

The Happy Meal Nazi's have struck in Santa Clara.  Once again the clarity of thought that is thankfully indigenous to the Bay Area provides help for the weak, downtrodden, chillern who are being coerced in to buying fast food.  Yes, being enticed by a low grade, plastic, POS toy from China is the reason our youth are pleasantly plump.  

Dr. Dan Delgado, director of a county program that targets childhood obesity, said the toys are a powerful lure for children, encouraging them to eat unhealthy food, which then helps cause obesity.

Which, of course, leads to low self esteem, poor dental hygeine,  glowball warming, rickets, lumpuckeroo of the blowhole and bad laws in Arizona.

Once again,we have been saved from ourselves.  Praise the Lord, pass the ammunition.
The Temple of Ted

Lyin of the Senate!

Your tax dollars at work.  Ted "The Swimmer" Kennedy will be getting yet another monument to his largesse.

The federal taxpayer is on the hook for more than $38.3 million for the Edward M. Kennedy Institute for the U.S. Senate. The planned center will be a neighbor to the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and, as its name suggests, will promote the career of the late Senator Edward M. Kennedy. Senator John Kerry and Congressman Ed Markey of Massachusetts slipped the earmarks into the federal budgets for defense and education, among other departments. 

The duo seeks an additional $30 million from next year's budget, which would push the Temple of Ted's take from the taxpayer to more than $68 million. Both complexes, distant from the UMass-Boston MBTA stop, will undoubtedly accrue millions of dollars more in subsidies via free shuttle-bus trips. It is unclear, what, if any, federal capital will pour into the Institute following these initial subsidies. 

Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what your country can do for the Kennedys. 

Mary Jo Kopechne remains unavailable for comment.


Consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds.  Following a Constitution is deemed racist when it does not fit your game plan.  The Obama Regime has a game plan. Using the recently passed law in Arizona is proving to be a useful tool.  Facts and Constitutions be damned.  Andrew McCarthy opines on the Arizona law here.  Smart guy that should read the whole thing.

At the southern border, however, the federal government has forfeited its power. As a result, Arizonans are imperiled by Mexico’s brutally violent warring factions. They are crushed economically as the magnet effect of our unsustainable welfare state falls disproportionately on their schools, hospitals, jails, and pocketbooks, to the tune of nearly $2 billion per year.

Arizona is a sovereign state. Its citizens have a natural right to defend themselves, particularly when the federal government surrenders. The state’s new law does precisely that, in a measured way that comes nowhere close to invoking the necessary, draconian powers Leviathan has but refuses to use.

Demagogues are smearing Arizona’s immigration law as “racial profiling” because it endorses police inquiries into the validity of a person’s presence in the United States. The claim could not be more specious. The law does not give police any new basis to stop and detain someone. Police may not inquire into immigration status unless they have a “lawful” basis for stopping the person in the first place. And even then, the police officer must have “reasonable suspicion” before attempting to determine whether the person is lawfully present. And that suspicion must be generated by something beyond race and ethnicity — as Byron York notes, the law expressly says these may not be the sole factors.

The law is clearly constitutional. Yet the Obama administration, having buried unconsenting Americans under avalanches of debt and inscrutable, unconstitutional mega-statutes, is mulling a court challenge, casting its lot with lawless aliens against besieged Arizonans.

A government destructive of our citizens’ basic rights to know, to determine, and to have the protection of the law cannot endure. This one will not. The only question is how much more damage we will allow it to do.

The lefties are in full bloom in the Arizona desert.  The basis for  their rage is the recently passed law allowing the police to inquire as to the nation of origin of the folks that it lawfully stops.  Charges of racism abound.  Boycott Arizona is their rallying cry. 

One item focused on is Arizona brand ice teas.  BOYCOTT !  that will show em.

Uno problemo, as my Spanish friends would's made in New York.  Idiots.

Hat Tip to the Southwest Editor at Large
Red Wings

Right now my favorite hockey team is winging their way westward on Red Wing One for the showdown in the desert.  


The Wylie Koyotes have survived to play another day.  Time is up though as the 7 game series is tied at 3 a piece.  

Wings are looking to kill the Yotes on home ice.  Not an easy task but, they are the Red Wings from Hockeytown.  

Got em right where we want em. 

Let's Go Red Wings !!!!!

Running Fast

Been busy before.  Work related.  Last few everything has combined in a perfect storm.  Couple basic life demand with the unending amount of asswittery (yup, its a word) that comes from president Zero, Our hero and it is hard to keep up with the Chronicles updates.  It is definitely more difficult to put together anything of substance.  I have always sought to have a mixture of insight and humor.  If it ain't fun, don't do it.

Of late I find myself laughing at the ongoing regime and crying over the long term impacts.  It's easier to go on Facebook and keep it light.  Couple that with work demands and watch the olde postings numbers drop accordingly.

My apologies to the loyal readers.  I'll be trying some new things over the next 60 days.  Let's see where it goes. To survive in these times ya gotta be fast.  It's harder to hit a moving target.
Monday's Pun(s) !!!

I dropped a tub of margarine in the kitchen and ended up with a Parkay floor.

The coffee tasted like mud because it was ground a couple of minutes ago.

The mechanic at the transmission shop seemed a little shifty.
The Measure of the Man

WSJ Online has forums.  There are some gold nuggets to be found. Here is an excerpt from "Article from the Wall Street Journal Forum by Eddie Sessions:"  You should read the whole thing.

 I have this theory about Barack Obama. I think he’s led a kind of make-believe life in which money was provided and doors were opened because at some point early on somebody or some group took a look at this tall, good looking, half-white, half-black, young man with an exotic African/Muslim name and concluded he could be guided toward a life in politics where his facile speaking skills could even put him in the White House.
In a very real way, he has been a young man in a very big hurry. Who else do you know has written two memoirs before the age of 45? “Dreams of My Father” was published in 1995 when he was only 34 years old. The “Audacity of Hope” followed in 2006. If, indeed, he did write them himself. There are some who think that his mentor and friend, Bill Ayers, a man who calls himself a “communist with a small ‘c’” was the real author.

How many of your friends have written memoirs?  At 34?  Really?

Monday's Pun(s) !!!

Experts say the cost of funerals have risen by 50%, they blame it on the cost of living.

The soldier who survived mustard gas and pepper spray training is now a seasoned veteran.

The man who worked at the watch factory was very funny. He stood about all day making faces.

Pompous Ass

A level of abject arrogance that knows no bounds.  president Zero, Our Hero responded to an inquiry about the Tea Party protests of April 15th by saying this.... 

"They should be saying thank you"
It just gets harder to write anything objectively about the guy.  He exhibits absolutely no leadership skills and brings nothing to the once vaunted office of the Presidency.   He is simply a pompous ass.

 Monday's Pun(s) !!!! 

Don't justify sin, just defy sin.

The harm caused by sibling rivalry is relative.

Don't join dangerous cults: Practice safe sects!

The best way to communicate with a fish is to drop them a line.

Tuesday's Monday's Pun(s) !!!

The psychotic florist created many flower derangements.

The Alpine Skiing competition started poorly and went downhill from there.

I've never tipped a cow. Then again, one has never served me food.

 Our Finest Hour?

It could be.  what's that phrase, carpe dium ? Perhaps......we can find our way

Like Mark Steyn, I view Barack Obama as “one of the most consequential presidents in history,” but not for the same reasons. In my view, he and today’s Democratic Party represent the last gasp of the Progressive impulse. The tyrannical ambition hidden at the heart of Progressivism’s quest for what Franklin Delano Roosevelt termed “rational administration” Barack Obama has made manifest; and to all with eyes to see, the danger that we have temporized with for nearly a century is now perfectly visible. As Obama himself has insisted in speech after speech, the moment in which we now live is a “defining moment.” What is required in what he calls “this defining moment” is what Abraham Lincoln once called “a new birth of freedom.” The period we just entered could be our finest hour.

Read the rest here.
