Makes a Difference

“Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you’ll know tomorrow.”Men in Black 1997

“Now lets consider how fleeting conventional wisdom is: A few years ago the John Edwards case was just the National Enquirer digging phony dirt, a few months ago anyone who thought the IRS was targeting the Tea Party was crazy and at the beginning of the month the idea of delaying Obamacare was a terrorist act.

Two years after ‘Wisconsin’ suddenly the same people, who unlike the Tea Party, were not anxious to stand with Scott Walker because they were convinced he was over the line, courting disaster for the GOP, are now invoking to the US public in general and the viewers in particular, of that same Scott Walker, to judge Ted Cruz and the Tea Party as extremists.

Ted Cruz made a fight that the establishment shied away from. He took on a position for principle not popular with the media and public. He made that fight with lots of risks and little upside and pushed the media to the point where that media made absolutely sure that the entire country knew which party wanted to stop Obamacare and which party with one voice was dedicated to protecting Obamacare from repeal and or delay at all costs….

right up until they weren’t.

If Ted Cruz had not made this fight, when the Obamacare launch came and the problems arose, the media would have talked about how natural such problems were and when Democrats asked to delay implementation it would be sold by the media as not a big deal, the most reasonable thing in the world…instead [they are] trying to explain why it’s necessary to delay a law passed by congress, signed by the president and upheld by the supreme court that they were united in defending as inviolate just two weeks ago, while comedians across the country laugh at it.

[non-RINO] Ted Cruz did this for you, even while you were trying to destroy him.

My exit question for Karl Rove & Company: How many millions of dollars from Big money donors would you have paid to put Democrats up for election in 2014 in such a spot?”

Funny, what a difference a year, a month, a week a day or a Congressional Hearing  makes……Dumbplumber

John Bolton: “Edward Snowden is a Traitor”

Memo to John: You don’t have to look at Moscow for a traitor. There’s one living at the Whitehouse that has done far more damage than Snowden could ever hope to do.


I see an Obamacare contractor says that the healthcare insurance website will be fixed by December

I couldn’t help but notice he didn’t say what year!!!!!

You know the difference between...

You know the difference between General George Custer at Little Big Horn and House Leader John Boehner during the government shutdown?

Remember that whole, “just because we raise the debt ceiling, doesn’t mean we will go further in debt”, comment made by Mr. Obama, in the midst of the shutdown kerfluffle? Well, to rest your weary mind, you might know that no later had the ink dried on the agreement to raise the ceiling, America went $328 billion further in debt the next day.

Yes Sir, nothing to see here, move along.

“We have neither of the two proposed forms of representation that were debated at the creation of America, but instead a hybrid that, arguably, combines the worst of both without the virtues of either.”

You know you just can't make this stuff up.  The army is about to scrap their $5 billion dollar investment in new uniforms.  Yes, the two uniform system, one for the woods, the other for the desert, is about to be scrapped for a new and improved uni-uniform that works in both scenarios.

Now I don't want to go out on a limb here, but since we're getting our butts kicked by cave dwelling, mutton munchers wearing towels on their heads and flip-flops, I don't think the look of our uniforms is going to do us much good.

Multi-Tool Revenge

As I see it: President Foot Stomper has placed barricades barring folks from entering the National Mall and other national parks. He has clamped them together and wired them to prevent opening. He has run ribbons around lamp posts, trees and garbage cans that read “Do Not Cross” and removed the handles from drinking fountains. Of course, most of these efforts cost us more than leaving the sites open, but there is hope.

I can remove the wire, cut the ribbons and replace the handles with my Leatherman multi-tool. What next, making it illegal to enter Washington D.C. with a Leatherman?
