Bernie Madoff for President

By Phantom On November 18th, 2011 at 10:23 pm

” These are the days that try men’s souls ” said Paine, and boy was he right. The economy is atrocious, the debt is enormous, we’re still at war, and Troll is agitating for more wars on all the continents.

The guy in the White House isn’t up to the task, and most of the Republican would be alternatives are a lot worse than he is.

The way I see it, we need to think outside the box.

We need someone who really knows money. A leader in private industry who has ran a business and who has met a payroll. Someone who will push back against unnecessary government regulation that is the sole source of our woes.

The choice is obvious the more you think about it.

Bernard Madoff is tanned, rested and ready.

Just as George Washington led the revolutionary forces through their darkest hours, Bernard Madoff is the one to lead us out of our current troubles.

Vote Bernie Madoff for President on the Independent Line. You gotta trust me on this.

Idea ( such as it is ) thought up by me, as it did for a couple of others, but ideas for the images stolen from this guy

Not sure why the above text is blue.

Shitty Upon a Hill – Newt Gingrich: The Nutty Professor.

By 33230715130361 On November 18th, 2011 at 4:58 pm

Former Speaker of the House and love himself long-time Newt Gingrich has emerged as the Republican Number Two.  Has Number Two ever been more appropriate a description of a politician? 

Newt is promoting his new film “City Upon A Hill” which of course takes its name from the Sermon on the Mount:  You are the light of the world, a city that is set upon a hill cannot be hidden.  Some Republicans may think it comes from Ronald Reagan (God’s other son in their minds) who used it in two memorable speechs.    I haven’t the heart to tell them Reagan was taking a page from Jack Kennedy, it would spoil their day.  You wonder why Newt has to promote his film which he made with his wife.  I suppose he never thought he would still be in the race at this point and the film promotion was previously scheduled.  Anyway, he is in the race now, and he has some problems that are arriving courtesy of the spotlight.

Old Newt has been pounding his fist on the table, decrying Freddie Mac and the mortgage crisis like an Old Testament Prophet.  Problem – he appears to have gotten couple million from Freddie Mac through one of his consulting companies.  Oh my.  He also has been playing up the Republican party line against Obamacare.  Problem – he got millions from clients, including Gundersen Lutheran, for promoting their health care efforts – including their end of life care program (cue Sarah Palin and Death Panels).   He was very vocal in support of President Bush’s prescription drug benefit program for the elderly.  Problem – looks like he got a lot of cash at the time from Phrma, a pharmacy company that benefited greatly from that program.   

In other words, Old Newt has been cashing in based on his days on the Hill like a Fool on the Hill.  No wonder he has such big bills with Tiffany Jewelers.   He can afford it!  He has cashed in and continues to do so, all the while understanding ethics and morality like Herman Cain understands foreign policy.  Add these fat cat insider dealings with Newt’s vivid infidelities (while he blamed Clinton for same) and one imagines even the Republican faithful will feel skeeved out by the hypocrite-in-chief.       

Newt, have all the mounts you want, but keep your sermons to yourself.

I love New Toys

By Patrick Van Roy On November 18th, 2011 at 1:14 pm

The U.S. released info on one of the Toys we have been playing with. It’s a Hypersonic Bomb that Travels at a minimum speed of 3,728 miles (6,000 kilometers) an hour. It’s range is estimated at 25,000 miles.(that’s one trip around the globe) It carries a conventional warhead and unlike a Ballistic Missile it can be maneuvered, it is quite capable of complete controlled flight.

This gives the capability that used to only be achieved by long range Nuclear Ballistic Missiles. We can hit anywhere on the globe from inside the U.S. without firing a Nuke. There are several versions of this toy. One version is an out of atmosphere delivery, one is a low altitude version like a cruse missile. It also has a big brother that is tested to travel at speeds of 27,000 Miles per hour, but they haven’t got all the bugs out of that one yet.

They did a little test yesterday of the Advanced Hypersonic Weapon,” or AHW. From Hawaii to its target on the Kwajalein atoll in the Marshall Islands, a Pentagon statement said. Kwajalein is about 2,500 miles (4,000 kilometers) southwest of Hawaii. The flight took only minutes.

It’s nice to know the U.S. still has some industry left capable of making a quality product.

Greetings from Reagan National Airport!

By Phantom On November 18th, 2011 at 12:00 am

I’m just back from northern Virginia.

On the road back to Reagan National Airport, I saw the two week old statue that Troll mentioned earlier today. It’s quite cool – this image doesn’t do it justice.

On a day when much of the news is taken up by the coalition of the confused OWS , this was one fine sight to see.

On The Lighter side of Life

British Prime Minister’s Cat Disdains Mouse Catching Role and Just Sleeps and Eats

 Even the cats in Europe are becoming lazy socialists who expect someone else to do the work!
This story is on a lighter note but one with an important lesson. Apparently Larry, the cat rescued from an animal shelter earlier this year with the expectation that a street animal would help control mice at Number 10 the British Prime Minister’s office and residence in London. The mice have apparently been running rampant in the building yet Larry the cat seems to think his role is to sleep and eat, but not catch the mice. The Daily Mail has the full story.

What else would a socialist do but expect the government to take care of his every need so he can nap all day and get up long enough to eat food that was provided by others?

To The Barricades? Fuhgettaboudtit!

By 33230715130361 On November 17th, 2011 at 4:22 pm

My stroll through Foley Square this morning allowed me to witness the wonderfully prepared New York City Police Department who are already in place to defend and protect the citizens of our great City from the unwashed angst of the Occupy Wall Street imbeciles .  Foley Square is in downtown Manhattan surrounded by our Courthouses and Federal Buildings.  It is not far from City Hall and an eggroll’s toss from Chinatown.

Foley Square was named, like all squares should be, for a saloon owner.  That saloon owner, Big Tom Foley, was a player in the 19th Century with the vividly corrupt Tammany Hall political machine.   The area is close by the long departed neighborhood known as The Five Points (depicted with artistic license in the film Gangs of New York).   The OWS crowd has threatened to coverge in this area today to express their leaderless pointless outrage about whatever they can come up with – Americans of the World Unite, you have nothing to lose but your chainstores! 

Regular readers will be happy to know that no harm came to your faithful correspondent, although I did have to wait on line longer at the coffee stand.  Later today I venture across the Brooklyn Bridge to Brooklyn Heights for a gathering of the bathed who will celebrate the fact that we go to work daily by drinking in an enthusiastic manner.  You think some OWS barricade on the bridge  is going to get between me and the tavern in Kings County?  Fuhgettaboudtit!  To the bartenders! 


The Truth

By Patrick Van Roy On November 17th, 2011 at 3:01 pm

The OWS crowd has adopted N17 as their day and their Logo, N17 is not a coincidence. It is based on the Greek N17.

The group’s name, 17N, refers to the final day of the 1973 Athens Polytechnic uprising, in which a protest against the Greek Military Junta (1967–1974), also known as the Regime of the Colonels took place. The uprising was bloodily suppressed by the army. 17N self-identified as Marxist, even Anarchist. In addition to assassinations, kidnappings, and symbolic attacks on corporate and government offices, 17N supported its operations with at least 11 bank robberies netting approximately US$ 3.5 million. Members of 17N kept detailed financial records, found in one of their safe houses in 2002, to document that the stolen money was used for revolutionary purposes.

This day and this name is NOT a coincidence. This is who they want to emulate, this is who’s tactics they want to emulate.
These people are a threat to society. There is nothing for the common man to support in this movement. This movement is a controlled massing of anarchists, and communists that want to topple the system. They are backed and funded by the Unions, and the Democrat Party.
If you support a Union or support the Democrat party, they are doing this in your name. They say that you want the U.S. to become a Communist Nation, Profit is a crime, Owning Property is a Crime, Not thinking as they do is a Crime. I ask you is this what you want? I don’t. So in their eyes I am the enemy.
