Some Nights..... in Sandy Eggo are hot and humid. Air Conditioning is not a necessity 360 days of the year.  But, some nights, you leave the windows open to disperse the heat. You hear the jets blasting off of North Island. It is like they are right next to you.  You reflect and the mind miss some folks.  Tonight is one of those nights....

Miss ya Lex.

For all you Paulistas out there...



Go. View the interactive painting.   

Be Amazed.

Tight Fit....

Oldie...but a goodie.

The Wrath..... 

president Zero, Our the latest version of "You didn't do that", olde Zero is gonna teach these
Navy Seals what for.  The new book by former SEAL Matt Bissonnette, published under the pseudonym Mark Owen, is titled "No Easy Day."  It goes step by step through the SEAL team's training and practicing for the May 2011 raid, the assault itself and the aftermath. It tells a heart-pounding story, but nowhere near as violent or explosive as a typical Hollywood movie.  How dare they try to take credit for Zero's killing of Bin Laden.

"Obama administration officials said on Thursday that the Pentagon is expected to inform Bissonnette that he has violated secrecy agreements and that both he and his publisher could be forced to forgo all royalties."

Of course, why would we expect anything else? Zero will prolly dress down that General McRaven running the Navy Seals too!

Order the book No Easy Day  here.

Islander 28

I miss Starboard Attitude.....

Neil Armstrong, R.I.P. 

Yeah, I remember where I was when he went on his lunar walk about you?

(H/T to the Southeast Editor & Hurricane Dodger)

These guys are so good they can hit both feet with one shot.  In their never ending quest to screw up a sure thing, the Republican honchos are starting a family feud.  The Big Kahunas of the party do not like having the simple folks like you, me and the Tea Party having a voice in the RNC.  

So today, on the first day of the convention, they are launching a back door rules change to limit the input from the rabble. They do not have the votes on the committee so, change the committee members! So much for a "unified" convention......

.......and this is how Barack Obama will become the next president of the USA.

A Compliment?

Not where I come from. 

So, most comments I hear are that president Zero is a pretty crappy basketball player.  Sure he fancies his badself a king of the court.  Then, like most things in his life, reality discloses something different.

So when Reggie Love, olde Zero's former right hand lacky, gives an interview and says.... "Reggie Love, the man by President Barack Obama's side for two years in the White House, said the president leads like he plays basketball."

Is he being truthful or just shinning us on?  If he is truthful, I would have to agree, wholeheartedly.


Master of Ceremonies....

Yes he was.

My Apologies....

Side tracked by a pesky case going to trial. Posting has been, and will remain somewhat light. (Unless of course I need a brief glimpse of the banal that is).

But, I thought..... 

New York had strict gun control laws?  You mean this guy broke the LAW! Good thing he died or there would be hell to pay!

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

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

The Weather is Here, I Wish You Were Beautiful....

Democrats remain un-phased by any threat to their convention being cancelled due to weather.  "We has a roof!" said Vice President Joe Biden.

The GREAT FLOOD: One Year Anniversary! 

A year ago the toilet in Law Offices of...exploded.  It happened over a weekend so no one was harmed.  The force of the explosion left porcelain embedded in the wall across from the toilet.  The water flowed for hours flooding the building. 

The offending commode was a Sloan Flushmate III.  They are now the subject of a recall.  Seems it was not an isolated incident

Each time Stan Auerbach sits on his toilet, he worries it might explode.“It’s a little scary,” said Auerbach, 78, of Garnet Valley, Pa. Auerbach has two toilets in his home, and they’re both outfitted with a powerful high-pressure Flushmate III system.

In June, the Flushmate III was declared a “laceration risk.” The Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a recall notice for more than 2.3 million of the water-conservation devices after learning that 304 units had blown up. The explosions shattered the commodes, caused home flooding, and, in some cases, sent porcelain shrapnel flying.

Be careful out there!  If you have a claim, you should call a lawyer.
 A good one......

Why We Win!

Many thanks to all who serve. Keepin it light, ready to fight. Where do we find such men?

Hit the Road Baracke...

...and don't ya come back no mo, no mo , no, mo hit the road......

The Libtard magazines have spoken..... 

Sue em... 

This crap get's me fired up. Kid bust her bottom, good grades, top of her class, full ride scholarship to college ....and then an idiot comes into her life.

When tasked with writing the graduation speech, her dad said she got her inspiration from the movie “Eclipse: The Twilight Saga.”
Nootbaar said, “Her quote was, ‘When she first started school she wanted to be a nurse, then a veterinarian and now that she was getting closer to graduation, people would ask her, what do you want to do and she said how the hell do I know? I’ve changed my mind so many times.’”
He said in the written script she gave to the school she wrote “heck,” but in the moment she said “hell” instead. 
Nootbaar said the audience laughed, she finished her speech to warm applause and didn’t know there was a problem.
That was until she went to pick up the real certificate this week.
“We went to the office and asked for the diploma and the principal said, ‘Your diploma is right here but you’re not getting it. Close the door; we have a problem,’” Nootbaar said.
He said the principal told Kaitlin she would have to write an apology letter before he would release the diploma.

What the hell?  Sue all of them.  Name each individual miscreant who had a hand in this decision individually.  Name the School district, the Board, the Principal, the cheer leading coach, their grandchildren and the damn dog.  Sue them until THEY write an apology and offer to teach classes based upon the First Amendment.

 Sue em & make them pay your cost for suing them. 

Of course, I mean this in a good way...justice for all and all that....

Monday's Pun(s) !!!

My tennis opponent was not happy with my serve. He kept returning it.

I tried break dancing in a china shop and got bullish results.

I didn't like my beard at first. Then it grew on me.

Gotta gig, gotta go!

Biden Unleashed:  
  The human gaffe machine has been on a roll the past few days. Are they setting olde Joe up to take a "needs a rest" powder and drop out of the race?
Just asking.....
UPDATE:  Drudge is on it.

Your Nose in My Business...... 

Never missing a chance to preach the Do As I Say, Not As I Do gospel, Moochelle Obama could not stiffle the mindset on Jay Leno's show the other night. Dressing down an Olympic athlete was the order of the day.

America's newest Olympics gymnastics star Gabby Douglas got scolded Monday night by first lady Michelle Obama for eating a celebratory Egg McMuffin at McDonald's after the competition was over.

Fortunately, in responding, the young Olympic GOLD medal Champion, Gabby Douglas has more charm and resolve than the olde Rumbear.  I dare say my response would have been somewhat different.....


Even us bears have Black Sheep....
Damage to Public Property? 

In Sandy Eggo it just gets curiouser and curiouser.....

A "Midnight Water Gun Fight" event destroyed the pond as hundreds of people used the water as ammunition to squirt. The event was community organized by LGBT activist Ken St. Pierre and promoted by the San Diego progressive gay and lesbian community, and others. This is the second annual event according to the San Diego Reader. Police are looking for the organizers.

Ken St Pierre? Pray tell who could this beDoo Doo Economics has more. 

SDPD is looking for the organizers. Lemme see, facebook postings, check.  Video of the event, check. Mayoral candidate connection, check. Inspector Clouseau could handle this one....SDPD? Hmmm....

The pond in the photo above is now empty. Estimates for repairs are $10-$15K. Except that is a Gubbermint estimate. Have you priced Koi fish lately?  My guess...$100K.

Can you say "Hot Potatoe"?

LGBT Pride....
Fish died.
Turtles cried.
Lillys fried.
Who will pay?
You and I....

Today's WTH? 

The National Weather Service has bought 46,000 rounds of 40 caliber jacketed hollow point ammunition.  

A solicitation which appears on the FedBizOpps website asks for 16,000 rounds of .40 S&W jacketed hollow point (JHP) bullets, noted for their strength, to be delivered to locations in Ellsworth, Maine, and New Bedford, Mass.
A further 6,000 rounds of S&W JHP will be sent to Wall, New Jersey, with another 24,000 rounds of the same bullets heading to the weather station in St. Petersburg, Florida.

Remember back in March the Department of Homeland Security purchased 450 MILLION rounds of the same ammo. They have plans for another large purchase later this year.(750 million?!)

What do they know that we don't?

Stay frosty.....

UPDATE:  WTH? Part Deaux...First it was the Department of Homeland Security, then it was the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and now the Social Security Administration is set to purchase 174,000 rounds of hollow point bullets that will be delivered to 41 locations across the country.


Ruh Roh.... 

Here is a video from September 2011.  It shows Erskine Bowles discussing Paul Ryan. 

You remember Erskine right?  He was Bill Clinton's Chief of Staff and charged with handling the federal budget issues.  Background in finance.  What say he about Paul Ryan?

"I'm telling you, this guy is amazing. I always thought I was OK with arithmetic. This guy can run circles around me," Bowles tells a class of students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill..

Spread the word.

More Crap 

Remember the South Park episode where the level of "crap" was measured in "Courics"?   I give you the "Solyndra"....

Via Instapundit, the Treasury Department now estimates taxpayers' losses on the auto bailout at $25 billion. This figure, however, relies on some optimistic assumptions; the reality is likely to be far worse.

One optimistic assumption is noted by the Detroit News in the linked article: GM's stock price.
The $25 billion figure (equal to 46.7 solyndras) is based on GM's closing price at the end of May, $22.20. However, the stock has continued to decline through the Summer and despite rallying off its late July lows, the stock now stands at $20.47, at which price the loss on GM is $850 million (or 1.6 solyndras) greater than in May. Were the stock to retest its 52-week low of $18.72, the loss would be $1.75 billion (or 3.3 solyndras) more than the Treasury estimate.

GM = 46.7 Solyndras.  Here's the ball GOP....RUN!

Monday's Pun(s) !!! 

I once heard a joke about amnesia, but I forgot how it goes.

You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.

All the toilets in police stations have been stolen. The cop's have nothing to go on.
SDG&E: Reduce Your Use Alert.  

It's been a little warm here in Sandy Eggo for a few days.  I keep getting emails from the local purveyor of all electricity.  Yannow, the guys that have a MONOPOLY on where I can get my volts, watts, gigawhozits and amps to power Rumbear Manor.  Seems the Wizards of Smart at San Diego Gas & Electric have determined that they are running a bit short of their supply.  Now, in a normal Capitalist society an increase in demand would warrant the brain trust to consider increasing their ability to supply. Get it?  Interestingly enough, it's called Supply & Demand.

Silly me...such is not the case in Kallyfornia.  Instead the power company issues a SDG&E: Reduce Your Use Alert
 I take this as a "We are to stupid, lazy, ignorant or just don't care to bring you more electricity today.  Wish us luck for tommorow...Alert" 

Here's a novel idea......maybe SDG&E needs an "Increase Your Output Alert". Another thought might be...privatization.

He's Lying.....Again.

Paul Ryan Schools Obama

This six minute video shows who Paul Ryan is.  He is not reading this, he is working off the cuff.  No TelePrompter needed.  Watch the facial expressions of president Zero. Pissed off to turn a phrase....  

Gubbermint Work
It's good if you can find it...

I am, I said.

Detroit City born and raised.....

Play Me....
