Words are inadequate to express my rage and sorrow. 4 more of my brothers and sisters are dead at the hands of sub-human scum.
It's enough to make me re-consider my decision to retire in February.
The VQ (Volence Quotient) of druggies, gangsters and wanna be's has steadily increased over the years while the ACLU and their ilk have managed to make us the bad guys. Throw in a general distrust of an armed public (Thanks NACOP, you worthless shits. You definitely do not speak for me.) and the recipe is disaster.
I don't want to hear from the politicians on this either. Just keep your lying mouths shut. If any of you actually tried to represent your actual constituency and protect their rights (Including the right to be secure in their persons. You know, self defense.) an armed customer would have shot this punk dead while he was busy killing 4 cops. Come to thibnk of it, if concealed carry was the rule maybe these mass public shootings would stop. Nothing else seems to work so why not try the common sense solution? Too logical?

Anatomy of a Failed Presidency

An article from American Thinker by Geoffrey P. Hunt

Barrack Obama is ontrack to have the most spectacularly failed presidency since Woodrow Wilson. In the modern era, we've seen several failed presidencies--led by Jimmy Carter and LBJ. Failed presidents have one strong common trait--they are repudiated, in the vernacular, spat out.
Of course, LBJ wisely took the exit ramp early, avoiding a shove into oncoming traffic by his own party. Richard Nixon indeed resigned in disgrace, yet his reputation as a statesman has been partially restored by his triumphant overture to China.
But, Barack Obama is failing. Failing big. Failing fast. And failing everywhere foreign policy, domestic initiatives, and most importantly, in forging connections with the American people. The incomparable Dorthybinowitz in the Wall Street Journal put her finger on it: He is failing because he has no understanding of the American people, and may indeed loathe them. Fred Barnes of the Weekly Standard says he is failing because he has lost control of his message, and is overexposed. Clarice Feldman of American Thinker produced a dispositive comentary showing that Obama is failing because fundamentally he is neither smart nor articulate; his intellectual dishonesty is conspicuous by itrs audacity and lack of shame.
But, there is something more seriously wrong: How could a new president riding in on a wave of precedented promise and goodwill have forfeited his tenure and become a lame duck in six months? His poll ratings ane in free fall. in generic balloting the Republicans have now seized a five point advantage. This truly is unbelievable. What's going on?
No narrative. Obama doesn't have a narrative. No, not a narrative about himself. He has a self-narrative, much of it fabricated, cleverly disguised or written by someone else. But this self-narrative is isolated and doesn't connect with us. He doesn't have an American narrative that draws upon the rest of us. All successful presidents have a narrative about the American caracter that intersects with their own where they display a command of history and reveal an authenticity at the core of their personality that resonates in a positive endearing way with the majority of Americans.  We admire those presidents whose narratives not only touch our own but who seem stronger, wiser, and smarter than we are. Presidents we admire are aspirational peers, even those whose politics don't align exxctly with our own: Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, Harry Truman, Ike, and Reagan.
But not this president. It's not so much that he's a phony, knows nothing about economics, and is historically illiterate and woefully small mindede for the size of the task-- all contributorry of course. It's that he's not one of us. And whatever he is, his profle is fuzzy and devoid of content, like a cardbouard cutout made from delaminated corrugated paper.
Moreover, he doesn't command our respect and is unable to appeal to our own common sense. His notions of right and wrong are repugnant and how thing work just don't add up. They are not existential. His descriptions of the world we live  in don't make sense and don't correspond with our experience.
In the meantime, while we've been struggling to take a measurement of this man, he's dissed just about every on of us-- financiers, energy produceers, banks, insurance executives, police officers, doctors, nurses, hospital administrators, post office workers, and anybody else who has a non-green job. Expect Obama to lament at his last press confeerence in 2012: "For those of you I offended, I apologize. For those of you who were not offended, you just didn't give me enought time: if only I'd had a second term, I could have offended you too."
Mercifully, the Founders at the Constitutional Convention in 1787 devised a useful remedy for such a desperate state-- staggered terms for both houses of the legislature and the executive. An equally abominable Congress can get voted out next year. With a new Congress, there's always hope of legislative gridlock until we vote for president again two short years after that.

Yes, small presidents do fail, Barack Obama among them. The coyotes howl but the wagon train keeps rolling along.

George Washington

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful fo his benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by their joint committee, requested me to " recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and single favors of 'Almighty God, especially by affording them a opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:"

Now , there fore, I do recommend and assign Thrusday , the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation; for the signal and manifold mercies and the favorable interpositions of His providence in the course and conclusion of the late war; for the great degree of tranquility, union , and plenty which we have since enjoyed; for the peaceable and rational manner in which we have been enable to establish constitutions of government for our saftey and happiness, and particularly the national one now lately instituted fot the civil and religious liberty with which we are blessed, and the means we have of acquiring a diffusing useful knowledge; and, in general, for all the great and various favors which He has been pleased to confer upon us.

And also that we my then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions; to enable us all, whether in public or private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and punctually; to render our National Government a blessing to all the people by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws, discreetly and faithfull executed and obeyed; to protect and guide all sovereigns and nations (especially such as have shown kindness to us), and to bless them with good governments, peace, and concord; to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand, at the city of New York, the 3d day of October, A.D. 1789

Where have all the great statesmen gone??

On this day we give thanks to our creator for the many blessings he has bestowed on us. I found this Thanksgiving Day Hymn and thought it appropriate.
May this day find you and those you love healthy and happy.
Happy Thanksgiving Day.

We Gather Together

We gather together to ask the Lord's blessing;
He chastens and hastens his will to make known;
The wicked oppressing now cease from distressing,
Sing praises to his name: He forgets not his own.

Beside us to guide us, our God with us joining,
Ordaining, maintaining his kingdom divine;
So from the beginning the fight we were winning;
Thou, Lord, wast at our side, All glory be thine!

We all do extol thee, thou leader triumphant,
And pray that thou still our defender wilt be.
Let thy congregation escape tribulation;
Thy name be ever praised! O Lord, make us free!


--Traditional Thanksgiving Hymn
(A translation by Theodore Baker: 1851-1934)

The next step in the ongoing war against traditional families by the 'excuse everything except American Values' bunch.

I've got a message I'd like to send to these people.
Stay the hell away from my grandchildren.
You have been warned.

We already knew this but it's nice to see it in print.

The Death Blow to Climate Science

Health Care has achieved cloture and is moving to the debate stage. Cap and Trade, silencing talk radio and Illegal Immigration are next.

It's time to pick a side and do it quickly. My own time on here is limited by what comes next. If these things pass we'll know the time for words had passed and I'll fold this blog. We'll see.
