Choom Me, Shroom Me...

...and don't wake me up to broom me.

So president Zero, Our Hero was a stoner par excel-lance in high school.  Pakalolo.  The gateway drug was Barry Soetero's vice of choice. 

Ima channeling my inner Cheech & Chong, Bill & Ted and their Excellant Adventure along with Harold & Kumar.  Suddenly the degree of ineptitude of this administration is coming in to focus. DUDE it's not our money....

Exurban has more.

Party on.....

Dario Franchitti bags his third Indy 500 victory.  The victory was in the wind until a last lap pass attempt by Rahal Racing's, Takuma Sato, failed.  Sato attempted to dive under race-leader  Franchitti in the first turn of the last lap. (Turn 1, seriously?)  Sato lost control of his car after it made contact with Franchitti. Sato hit the wall, Franchitti headed to the finish line. Game. Set. Match.

Awesome win!!   

 there anything it can't do!

Memorial Day 2012 

Some gave all......

The Bear Clan will begin the weekend by placing flags on the graves at Fort Rosecrans. Up at dawn on Saturday with 1500 other Boy Scouts doing this yearly task. It is inspiring to watch the waves of scouts descend down the gently rolling hills of the cemetery in the early morning haze. Pausing at each grave to place a flag and say out loud a long forgotten name. Me? I look for the Michigan boys, and an olde friend.....because somebody has to take care of em. Our last stop is Grandpa's grave, where we place a final flag and spend some time with him.

Go out this weekend, give thanks and remember our heroes, past and present. Rumbear out... 

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


Doo de doo, de doo, de doo ....
SNO Is home for the weekend.  Placing flags at Fort Rosecrans on Saturday. Range time and the Indy 500 on Sunday and Monday hanging around the BBQ!  Y'all have a great Memorial Day weekend!

RSO-Range Safety Officer

Just got the word that I passed the test!  I am a certified NRA RSO


Brett Kimberlin

Who is he?  A run of the mill Libtard activist or ....... 

We report. You decide.

Indy 500 

It's that time of year again....the Indianapolis 500 is 3 days, 1 Hour and 16 minutes away!  I have written about the Indy several times over the life of this blog.  A lot of traditions and memories come to the fore. Listening on the radio with Dad, attending 23 years ago with Gator, finding out Bar Results.....

Good times. 

Tomorrow is Carburation Day. 

Ryan Briscoe (who?) is on the pole with an average speed of 226.484.  That's 02:38.9514 around the oval!  The Starting Line Up is HERE.


One gem that has ripened here in the California sun is Victor Davis Hanson.  VDH grew up in the Central Valley and commutes to work at the Hoover Foundation at The Farm.  He writes passionately about the demise of California and occasionally opine on the national scene at NRO.  His latest is a good query on .....

The power of cool is evident also in politics. State quite correctly that you can see Russia from parts of Alaska, and you are ditzy white-trash Sarah from Wasilla; state falsely that Franklin Roosevelt addressed the nation on television in 1929, and you are just “good ol’ Joe Biden.”

John Kerry’s second married-into fortune probably dwarfs the one that Mitt Romney made himself, perhaps by a factor of ten. While we heard in 2012 that Romney wanted a car elevator in one of his many houses, we never heard much in 2004 of presidential candidate Kerry’s various mansions, boats, or assorted playthings, or how he proved to be a keen investor as a senator helping to set U.S. financial policy.

Kerry, you see, was cool. He windsurfed and wore spandex as he cycled, and found his exemption by championing the poor he rarely saw.

President Cool in da house.......



Maybe Texas is better?

Texas Better Than California? 

Some folks think so.

The dickens you say?  I am stuck here for a reason I really don't understand and would be hard pressed to articulate.  However, there are last straws......

UPDATE: Apparently others think so too.

On to the Stanley Cup Finals!!

....of course there has to be a little controversy.  Chck out Jeremy Roenick and a cranky Mike Milberry discussing the hit that scrambled the Coyotes and left them braying as the Kings scored seconds later. 

Self Protection... 

Be safe out there kids!

So, This Zebra & Macaw Walked....

...into a bar.....

DUBUQUE, Iowa - A Cascade man was arrested outside of a Dubuque bar on Sunday night with a pet zebra and a macaw parrot in the front seat of his truck.

Officers charged Jerald Reiter, 55, with OWI. Police reports say officers stopped him in the parking lot of the Dog House Lounge as he drove away in his truck. According to police, field sobriety tests showed Reiter had a blood alcohol level of .14. The legal limit in Iowa is .08.

Reiter tells that he and his wife see the animals like their kids and often take them for rides. On Sunday night, they say they took the zebra and the macaw to the bar because it often lets people bring their animals inside.

Ya can't make this crap up.  Hell, why bother.

Los Angeles Kings 

My Detroit Red Wings are long gone from the Stanley Cup Playoffs.  However, the Big Kahuna is an olde friend and a die hard Kings fan.  It is great watching his team thrive in the playoffs against the Phoenix Coyotes.  I have jumped on the Kings bandwagon.  Hockey has not been this popular in Southern Cal since Gretzky was lacing them up.  He was a King....and owner of the Coyotes to boot.  I am surprised he has not surfaced at a game.

Even Cartman is on board.....GO Kings GO! 

Chris Christie 

The profound Guvner was in good form this weekend discussing president Zero, Our Hero. CBS is reporting:

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie told Kentucky Republicans on Saturday that President Barack Obama was “posing and preening” instead of working to resolve pressing issues facing the country.
“He is the most ill-prepared person to assume the presidency in my lifetime,” Christie told some 600 Kentucky Republicans at a Lexington hotel. “This is a guy who literally is walking around in a dark room trying to find the light switch of leadership.”

I chuckled.......
Monday's Pun(s) !!! 

Sea captains don't like crew cuts.

A gossip is someone with a great sense of rumor.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Observation:  Have you noticed since everyone has a camcorder these days no one talks about seeing UFOs like they used to?

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

When the smog lifts in Los Angeles, U C L A.

Deja Moo: The feeling that you've heard this bull before.

His parents thought he was a budding genius, but he turned out to be a blooming idiot.

A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel, and were
standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office, and asked them to disperse. "But why," they asked, as they moved off. "Because," he said, "I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."

Johnny Rivers

This one's been stuck in my head today.

Nice Gun

Singular...the .45.  

Renee Wyatt from Gunsmoke

A woman who had been married three times walked into a bridal shop one day and told the sales clerk that she was looking for a wedding gown for her fourth wedding. "Of course, madam," replied the sales clerk, exactly what type and color dress are you looking for?" The bride-to-be said, "A long frilly white dress with a veil." The sales clerk hesitated a bit, then said, "Please don't take this the wrong way, but gowns of that nature are considered more appropriate for brides who are being married the first time - for those who are a bit more innocent, if you know what I mean? Perhaps ivory or sky blue would be nice?"

"Well," replied the customer, a little peeved at the clerk's directness, "I
can assure you that a white gown would be quite appropriate. Believe it or not, despite all my marriages, I remain as innocent as a first-time bride.You see, my first husband was so excited about our wedding he died as we were checking into our honey moon hotel. My second husband and I got into such a terrible fight in the limo on our way to our honeymoon hotel that we had that wedding annulled immediately and never spoke to each other again."

What about your third husband?" asked the salesclerk.

"That one was a Democrat," said the woman, "and every night for four years,
he just sat on the edge of the bed and told me how good it was going to be, but nothing ever happened."

It's a Thug Life....

Perusing the Intrawebs today and found a link over at Rogers place. Followed it to an article in the WSJ on how the Obama campaign is potentially guiding opposition research and harassing donors to Romney's campaign.

Frank VanderSloot is the CEO of Melaleuca Inc. The 63-year-old has run that wellness-products company for 26 years out of tiny Idaho Falls, Idaho. Last August, Mr. VanderSloot gave $1 million to Restore Our Future, the Super PAC that supports Mitt Romney. 

Three weeks ago, an Obama campaign website, "Keeping GOP Honest," took the extraordinary step of publicly naming and assailing eight private citizens backing Mr. Romney. Titled "Behind the curtain: a brief history of Romney's donors," the post accused the eight of being "wealthy individuals with less-than-reputable records." Mr. VanderSloot was one of the eight, smeared particularly as being "litigious, combative and a bitter foe of the gay rights movement." 

That's right kids, Mr. Hope & Change is targeting individual citizens for their contributions to political causes. It's a thug life. It is gonna get nastier as the long hot summer rolls on....

Don't doubt me.

Gay Marriage. 

If Obama's view is "evolving" who is to say what it will be tomorrow?

Just asking.....

Wednesday, May 09, 2012


There's a whole lot of evolving going on out there!  Why now?  Just like the opinion on Super Pacs a few months back.

You say evolve, I say flip flop......

Obama....another flippity flop.......could it have a political purpose? Maybe? Perhaps?

Just know that he was for it before he was against it....and now he's for it. Today.  Check back tomorrow for the latest....

Here's a good one on the history of this EVOLUTION

Apparently president Zero, Our Hero, is coming in to LA to snatch & grab another sack-o-cash from the local libtards.  How do I knows?  Just received this bulletin from the AOPA.
