'Don't shoot the messenger ....



Erick Erickson's "My Candid Candidate Thoughts After CPAC," are worth reading.  He pleads, "don't shoot the messenger," so that will give you an idea.  As for me, I've decided to take full advantage of my age and not (try not) to let the destruction of our culture destroy me now.  I'll fortunately be dead before the full impact of Obama is felt. If he fell down an elevator shaft today, he cannot be undone because we are governed by circus clowns. 

Caveat: It will not however take much more of this to make me saddle my horse and ride to Texas though.

BROADCHURCH                               




An ice storm (and ultimately accurate) forecast caused the cancellation of a birthday party we were to attend, so we had a blank calender.  What to do?  Well, as it turned out we used the day to watch all 8 episodes of BROADCHURCH, season one. Didn't want to.  Had to. That will serve as my review.  Brilliant.

By the by, I was able to identify the killer, but only because I named everyone in the cast before it was over. 

Also, I've watched
ohsay 62000 movies based in Britain, but never seen the particular landscape (Westside Cliffs) where this takes place.  Stunning.

I’ve been watching several of these Irish and British television series on Netflix as a result of your recommendations. Among them are Inspector George Gently, The Fall, Happy Valley, Hinterlands, and Jack Taylor. I’m looking forward to Broadchurch which is already in my cue. They have been uniformly excellent in all respects.

It has been troubling that I’ve previously not known of these excellent presentations. My impressions, prior to your recommendations, was that British television was effete, incomprehensible, persnickety, or just plain stupid.

Yesterday I realized the source of my confusion. The only UK programming that I’ve been able to view, prior to Netflix, was that chosen for me by the same mindset that selects the rest of the twaddle that appears through American media.

A great deal of my enjoyment, I suspect, goes well beyond the quality of the writing, acting, location photography, and storytelling. There seems to be an absence, or at least a lack of focus, on social and political agendum. Without these agendum driving the production, I’ve been free to enjoy the programs for what I think programs ought to be, entertainment.

Thanks for posting and recommending

All your suggestions so far has been spot on. I would also recommend "The Fall".

John Boehner allies fret coup attempt
                               





Conservatives warn the speaker’s fate could be determined by how he handles the next seven days.
YAY!
 
Article by POLITIO
BOO!

.... Close allies of Speaker John Boehner are worried that his conservative rivals could move to oust him as soon as next week.
YAY!

Removing a sitting speaker is exceedingly difficult, and such an effort would almost certainly fall short.
BOO!

Yet growing speculation about the possibility of it – coming after Friday’s embarrassing defeat at the hands of conservatives and House Democrats on the homeland security battle — shows how vulnerable the speaker has become.
YAY!

Frustration with the Ohio Republican is mounting after dozens of hardliners voted Friday against his three-week funding package for the Department of Homeland Security. Hours of frantic leadership meeting ensued. After some backroom maneuvering with Democrats, Boehner was able to push through a one-week bill to keep DHS open. Obama signed the bill into law just 10 minutes before a shutdown of the massive federal agency.
BOO!

The stinging rebuke of Boehner on the House floor infuriated his supporters, who accused opponents of handing Democrats a huge PR victory.
YAY!


“Some of these 52 [Republican who voted no] are more worried about protecting their own careers than protecting their constituents from ISIL. They are more worried about primaries than they are about the country,” said a GOP lawmaker close to Boehner, using an acronym for the Islamic State.
You Utterly Stupid Asswipes

“This is all aimed at Boehner. They want to take Boehner out.”
YES!  USA! USA! USA!

Say Amen

Maybe, after the conservative members of the Republican Party, as opposed to Boehner and his fellow RINOs, toss his sorry ass out of the Speakership, Boehner will do what he should have done years ago - move over to the Democrat side of the aisle. Or resign and go back to Ohio where he belongs.

You're assuming Ohio wants him back.

#####
Not raising debt does not equal a default:

The Treasury can continue to issue debt to refinance existing debt that has come due. It just can't issue new debt above the debt ceiling*.

What would happen would be about a 40% cut in spending over night, which might not be a bad thing.

It would become a default if Obama orders the Treasury to stop issuing debt to refinance.

* I am not sure if the debt ceiling also includes intra-governmental debt (i.e. Social Security Trust fund). Social Security went cash flow negative in 2010, meaning the deficit is made up from general revenues by SS cashing in the notes. Can the treasury issue new debt to cover the trust fund obligations?

Boehner reminds me a bit of the later western Roman Emperors during the decline: Really good at squashing internal opposition..

Talent and drive in opposing the real enemies (barbarian hordes) threatening to destroy west? No so much.

I'd bet the donor was good ol' Skoonj. I can't remember if he sent it to me or if I sent it to him, but I'll bet he sent it to you.

Update: Well, I definitely sent the link to this parody (which I encountered on Newsmachete.com) to Skoonj on Feb. 20, and then he Fwd'd it.

I had included the following comment:
OK, I realize that Obama has become a parody of himself, and his latest speech does nothing to contradict that. But this particular parody points out what I like to call the "What a crock o'shit" Factor whenever Obama "explains" to us how terrorism and Islam are in no way connected.

When he brazenly attempts to legitimize the "grievances" of Islam, I'm reminded of the late comic Sam Kinison, who said, "I don't condone wife-beating, but I can understand it!" Substitute any of the atrocities committed in the name of Allah for wife-beating (which itself is encouraged under Islam!) and it's not even remotely funny.

Jeez Rodg, now everybody will know how old I am. Actually, I had to have Meredith stand in for me, because I was old then, having ridden with Pershing in Mexico.
My stepfather-in-law, a waist gunner on a B-17, described that gunnery course to me. Also said the German fighters attacked head on to the nose of the bombers, giving a gunner no time to aim and only a second or two to fire before they were gone. He said he thinks he might have hit one once.

I noticed the movie enthusiasm for the B-24. My dad was a mechanic on B-24's and hated them. He called them flying coffins.

My dad flew B-17s. He said the B-24 was the crate the B-17 was shipped in.

#####
My dad was in the group that did the research, wrote the manuals and trained the instructors for turret gunners in the bombers. They did that work in Nevada near Las Vegas. He was there when Carole Lombard's plane crashed and was in the group that went up into the mountains to bring out the body parts and the mail. Later during the war, he got a look at the casualty reports coming back from Europe. Apparently, the life expectancy of a tail gunner in actual combat was about three seconds. The side, top, belly and nose gunners could count on help from each other. The tail gunners were back there basically alone. The German fighters knew that they only had to deal with one gunner and would often attack from the rear. In addition, it wasn't an easy crawl to get back to the turret.
Thanks for finding the video, I'll send him the link. I'm sure he will enjoy it.

we have met the enemy and ...
                                







Impeach Boehner & McConnell

First Barack Obama decided to overreach and extend amnesty by executive order. One judge in Texas has told him no and Republicans are hanging their hat on that judge’s order.

Then the FCC decided to declare internet a public utility. They overreached, rushed it through, and committed to as little transparency as possible to make it happen. Congress did nothing on this front and the FCC decided to replace the Congress on the matter.

Now there are reports that Barack Obama, by executive order and agency regulation, will curtail the manufacture of certain ammunition.

At some point men have to stand up and damn the consequences to do what is right. But we are not led by leaders of men. We are led by cowards — cowards for whom no oath is meaningful or sacred.
Again and again and again the President of the United States has met the boundaries of his powers and stepped across them. The Senate is now on the verge of confirming his Attorney General appointee who sees no limits to the power of Octavius Obama.

Given Barack Obama’s continuous overreaching of power, I must now ask if it is time to consider impeachment proceedings. Is it even possible?

Of course some of you think I mean against Barack Obama. No, can we impeach, remove from office, or otherwise put metaphorical cement shoes on Rep. John Boehner (R-OH)N/A and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)67%?  [Full Excelentness]

LOL... even funnier is the fact that I have about 1,000 rounds of .223 in my ammo locker -- and I don't even own one of those silly AR-15 things.

As any fule kno, I prefer my AK-47 for those "awkward" moments (and have much more 7.62x39 ammo on hand).

And I note that people seem to have forgotten all about National Ammo Day... which was designed to be a preventive measure against government activities like this latest nonsense. But did people listen to me? Noooo. Now everyone's running around panic-buying, when they should have had enough to outlast any ban.

And I get absolutely no satisfaction from saying all this.

GREEN NAZIS                                    


An actual email from the “Are you now, or have you ever been a member of any
anti-science organization?” department and Barack Obama’s “Organizing for Action” front.





The level of Soviet style criminal activity at the White House has reached spectacular new lows. On February 20, The White House sent out this E-mail announcing that they were going to start attacking individual scientists who dissented from the White House global warming agenda.

Real Science Full
After getting the e-mail alert from drummerick I sought confirmation; I checked with the gold standard on climate, Anthony Watts .  This. (Check out the comments from the mostly real scientists.)

Friday Funny: Well if I was a ‘denier’ I guess I’d be on notice by Barack Obama


In case you think this Obama message is an anomaly
that whack Greens are a minority within the inner Obama Proletariathere's a sample that ought dissuade you.

Sorry to bust yer bubble there, Jess, but the military, once populated by men (and women) of honor who were Constitution-cherishing patriots above all else, has been deliberately demoralized and purged of the above-mentioned types, and is now largely populated by de facto mercenaries who will do the regime's bidding, no matter how un-Constitutional the orders.

Hey Esteve, one of my flight instructors way back had been an instructor at Beeville. He said one day the big fan quit right over the highway, trimmed for best glide, no biggie. There was one car right where he needed to go. He slipped her a little to let the car get ahead but it was going to be close. He plunked her down right behind the car and layed on the brakes. A little boy popped up in the back window and became all eyes and mouth, frozen at the sight of the big airplane about to gobble them up, just in time the car pulled away and the driver never had a clue what was behind. He said the little boy never moved and probably got his ass beat that night for the big fib he told about some airplane on the highway. I never see a T28 without thinking about that kid. -Anymouse
