Fail.

After getting our internet switched to a new provider we were offline for two days due to the installer's incompetence.

He was probably about eighteen, showed up very late and took so long that the whole rest of the day was burned up. He didn't know his own equipment and as a result we will have to make two separate trips to the companies office to return stuff he installed that we didn't even need.

Hubby should bill them for having to completely re-do the installation on his own...

But hey, at least the guy wasn't this bad:


Notice how the driver took off? LOL! I'll bet he ran straight to his car and peeled out!

Charlie Daniels Does it Again:

It's Finally Happened

Washington has totally lost its collective mind and is drowning in a sea of make believe that transcends common sense and even political correctness.

I'm going back to Iraq later on in the year, and I can't wait to see what the young men and women in the military think about fighting the "Overseas Contingency Operation."

They actually thought they were fighting the War on Terror, but their new Commander in Chief and the bunch of politically correct, pantywaist loonies who serve under him are afraid of offending Osama bin Laden or some other scum-sucking, head-decapitating terrorist murderers, so they changed horses in mid stream.

The War on Terror is now the Overseas Contingency Operation, terrorism is now referred to as "man caused disasters" and now the White House has decided that they would no longer call the Islamic fanatics -who want to destroy our way of life- "enemy combatants," but so far the Obama administration hasn't thought of anything less offensive. May I suggest "misguided well-meaning foreign citizens"? That sounds like something the White House can run with.

If it wasn't so dangerous it would be funny. Do these people actually think that by calling something by a kinder gentler name they can make it less dangerous? This is downright stupid. Yes, I said it. It's stupid.

It's like saying, "Mr. bin Laden, we're sorry for calling you all those terrible names. We're really sorry, and if we'll stop using those awful descriptions, will you just leave us alone? Can't we all just put some flowers in our hair and live in peace? Besides it was all that awful George W. Bush's idea."

Well Mr. Obama, I might have missed it but I haven't heard you mention 9/11 once, and just in case you've forgotten these noble enemy comba… sorry, "foreign mischief-making citizens", -or whatever you end up calling them- of yours murdered over 3000 of our citizens in three different locations on American soil and your milksop definitions of these pus ball killers is just not good enough for me.

I have some suggestions for your vocabulary:

Rattlesnake - triangle-headed surface crawler

Black Widow Spider - red dotted black circle

Shark - fish with a toothy smile

Grizzly Bear - big cuddly fuzzball

Dynamite - stringed red stick

Ted Bundy - homo sapien with a slight attitude

Jeffrey Dahmer - peculiarly-appetited loner

The media in this country have their heads so far up the collective posteriors of the Obama Administration that all they can do is sit back and say, "Oh isn't he wonderful? Isn't he brilliant? He has compassion and cares about everybody's feelings!"

Folks, please don't let this bunch of new age liberal fanatics pull the wool over your eyes.

Regardless of what the White House says, we are still fighting the War on Terror. If you don't believe it, ask some of the young heroes who patrol the roads of Iraq everyday at the risk of having their Humvees blown to kingdom come by a roadside bomb, not put there by a soldier but by a citizen terrorist and that does not compute into enemy combatant, "peace-depriving individual" or any other ridiculous politically correct term they can come up with, no matter how you cut it.

The more Obama tries to placate these people, the weaker they will perceive us to be and you know what's sad? It will be the truth.

I remember watching a TV show a few years ago when there was a war going on between Israel and their Arab neighbors. I remember the rapper, Vanilla Ice, walking to the microphone, raising his fist in the air and saying, "Peace in the Middle East!"

I think that's a wonderful idea, Mr. Ice. How about you go over there and fix it for us. I'm sure you and Sean Penn could make all of the problems in the Middle East just go away.

These idealistic platitudes may make the people who say it feel good about themselves, but it does absolutely nothing to solve the situation.

The only thing to be accomplished by soft-pedaling the rhetoric will be to give our blood enemies a good laugh.

I can't help but wonder how the coverage of the trade towers bombing would be reported today, would it be something like…?

"Today misguided well-meaning foreign citizens from the Overseas Contingency Operation inflicted a Man Caused Disaster at the World Trade Center depriving some three thousand people -who probably shouldn't have been there anyway- of their livingness, and besides, we're sure they had a good excuse for doing it."

Film at eleven.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops

Test Post

I'm having some trouble viewing my site.

This is just a check to see if I can still post.

I lifted this from the photos page at Red State Update; it's just too good not to share:


Click to enlarge.

Pizza Vending Machine


An undated handout photo shows workers assembling pizza vending machines in a factory in Trento. A vending machine that bakes fresh pizza in minutes for a few euros has got Italian chefs in a whirl before it hits the streets in the coming weeks. The bright-red "Let's Pizza" machine uses infra-red rays and technology developed at the University of Bologna to knead flour and water into dough, spread it with tomato sauce and a choice of topping, and cook it -- all in less than three minutes.


But is it any good? How large of a pie are we talking about? Where can I get mine?

"Special Relationship"...




...Well, I suppose that's one way of phrasing it.


Julianne Moore has been cast as Hillary Clinton in new film "Special Relationship".

The actress will star opposite Dennis Quaid -- who will play Hillary's husband, ex-U.S. President Bill Clinton -- in the movie which will show how Bill's 'inappropriate relationship' with White House intern Monica Lewinsky nearly ended his time in power.

A source said: "This is a big role for both of them. Playing Hillary, a wife who stands by her unfaithful husband, will be something she can get her teeth stuck into."

Dennis reportedly beat four other leading actors - Russell Crowe, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Alec Baldwin and Tim Robbins - to win the role of Bill.

"Special Relationship" is the closing film of a political trilogy written by Peter Morgan, following "The Deal" -- about Tony Blair's rise to power in the British Labour party - and "The Queen" which focused on the reaction of the British Royal Family to the death of Princess Diana.

"Special Relationship" will be Peter's directorial debut.

The film will also feature Michael Sheen as former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, who will be seen growing frustrated with Bill as his attentions move from politics to his own personal crisis.

"Special Relationship" starts filming in the UK and US in July.


I'm not seeing the resemblance:


Not to mention the lack of resemblance between Quaid and Bill.

And really, do we have to endure Slick Willie's escapades again, this time stylized and with cheesier dialogue?

OK, and one last thing... If Quaid is playing the former Philanderer-in-Chief, and Moore is playing Shrillary (I just can't stop laughing), who do you think will be cast in the role of the Human Humidor?

I'm Sad.


Hi, everyone.

I'm sorry that I haven't been able to get out to everyone's blogs lately, or to do much posting. My work schedule has been crazy.

I'll be back 'out' once things settle a bit.

Also, our dog Jessi is very elderly. She's probable about 12 years old or so.

Last night she stopped eating altogether. She's a HUGE chow hound, so that's not good. I can't even hand feed her. She is barely drinking, and her breathing is quite labored since last night, too.

Since she started getting arthritis, she's not been much of a lap dog anymore, but she let me hold her in a blanket on the couch until the wee hours of the morning.

I'm afraid she's not long for this world.

Jessi has been a good friend. We've had her since before we've had our kids.

She's the little one:

The Politics of... Feeling Good.

Amazing. This is coming out of Obama's new Homeland Security Secretary:

Janet Napolitano, 51, is President Obama's new Homeland Security Secretary. She spoke with SPIEGEL about immigration, the continued threat of terrorism and the changing tone in Washington.

SPIEGEL: Madame Secretary, in your first testimony to the US Congress as Homeland Security Secretary you never mentioned the word "terrorism." Does Islamist terrorism suddenly no longer pose a threat to your country?

Napolitano: Of course it does. I presume there is always a threat from terrorism. In my speech, although I did not use the word "terrorism," I referred to "man-caused" disasters. That is perhaps only a nuance, but it demonstrates that we want to move away from the politics of fear toward a policy of being prepared for all risks that can occur.


Read the whole thing here, if you can stomach it.

It's Official...




...Spring is here!

I found these little guys growing just off the back 'patio':


Unfortunately, they'll have to go. They're the offspring of the giant tree in our backyard.


The kids were thrilled to find these in our front flower bed:



We will have beautiful white lilies before much longer!


And finally, a picture of our cat, Jack, having one heavy napping session on my lap:


It's good to be the cat!

Soft Gloves for Shrillary

My work schedule for the last few days hasn't allowed me any time for visiting my friends' blogs, but when I saw this I just had to throw up a quick post!

Tongue-tied Clinton gets warm welcome

BRUSSELS (Reuters) – Hillary Clinton raised eyebrows on her first visit to Europe as secretary of state when she mispronounced her EU counterparts' names and claimed U.S. democracy was older than Europe's.

Clinton has set herself a grueling pace on visits to Egypt, Israel and Brussels soon after touring the Far East, attending dozens of meetings and giving speech after speech, with little time worked into her schedule for sleep.

Tiredness appeared to show Friday when she answered questions in front of 500 young Europeans at the European Parliament, where she was the highest-ranking U.S. visitor since the late President Ronald Reagan in 1985.

A veteran politician, Clinton compared the complex European political environment to that of the two-party U.S. system, before adding:

"I have never understood multiparty democracy.

"It is hard enough with two parties to come to any resolution, and I say this very respectfully, because I feel the same way about our own democracy, which has been around a lot longer than European democracy."

The remark provoked much headshaking in the parliament of a bloc that likes to trace back its democratic tradition thousands of years to the days of classical Greece.

One working lunch later with EU leaders, Clinton raised more eyebrows when she referred to EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana, who stood beside her, as "High Representative Solano."

She also dubbed European Commission External Relations Commissioner Benita Ferrero-Waldner as "Benito."

Still, Clinton has been well received in Brussels, where the Obama administration has been viewed as a breath of fresh air after the unpopular leadership of George W. Bush. His secretary of state, Condoleezza Rice, often drew protests on her travels.

Fellow foreign ministers stood and applauded Clinton's presentation at a meeting with NATO counterparts Thursday and extra space had to be set aside for a spillover audience of 800 at the European Parliament.

Parliament President Hans-Gert Poettering was effusive in his praise, saying that with the new administration, the United States and Europe once again "share the same values."

"What you said mostly could have been said by a European," he told Clinton after she fielded questions ranging from climate change to energy security and aid to Africa and one on gay rights from a participant wearing an "I love Hillary" t-shirt.


Can you imagine if a Republican had been elected and did this? This article sure as hell wouldn't be patting his/her butt the way they are for Shrillary!!!

In fact, I'd say it's a fair bet that the MSM would be calling a Republican Secretary of State making such blunders a moron, idiot, and any other insult that came to their minds.

*sigh*

Giving the Ladies Their Due:

Here's a little gem from the 'religion of peace', all emphasis mine:


Madrid, Spain (CNN)- An Iranian woman living in Spain is welcoming a Tehran court ruling that awards her eye-for-an-eye justice against a suitor who blinded her.

In a Spanish radio interview, she says her aim isn't revenge -- it's to make sure her suffering isn't repeated.

Ameneh Bahrami was blinded and disfigured in 2004 when a man she had spurned threw acid on her. Late last year, an Iranian court reportedly ruled that Islamic justice calls for the attacker to be blinded with acid, too.

But the victim says she is entitled to blind Majid Movahedi in only one eye, because under Iranian law "each man is worth two women."

She also says he would be blinded by having several drops of acid put into one eye, whereas she had acid splashed all over her face and other parts of her body.

She says she's waiting for a letter from the court telling her to go back to Iran for the punishment to be carried out.


This is insanity.

And we're to give any credence to Islamists that want Sharia law instituted in Western countries?

This woman should not be allowed back into Spain after she leaves! If these animals love Sharia law so much they should move to a country where they can live under it. If they want to live in a Western country, they should assimilate. Period.

Guns, Guns, Guns!

Crowder in '12? I'm thinking, HELL YES!!!
