Gorgeous!

***That describes our weather in Indiana the past couple of days. Sunny, mid-70s, low humidity. It just doesn't get any better than that! I hope it's like this Friday for our annual Fourth of July party!

***Obama owes Bush an apology. Yeah, like THAT'S gonna happen. That would require humility, which of course Barack Obama is in short supply of. Not to mention character, honesty, honor...

***Markdowns on classic movies and TV shows at Amazon.com. (H/T Instapundit)

***The flying car is coming!!

***Another reason to love Chris Christie.

***Can Lance Armstrong win again?

***Here, in a nutshell, is what President Obama thinks of the Constitution. Basically, it gets in the way of wealth redistribution. Check this out:

OBAMA 2001: As radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical.  It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the Founding Fathers in the Constitution, at least as it has been interpreted -- and Warren Court interpreted it in the same way, that generally the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can't do to you, says what the federal government can't do to you. But it doesn't say what the federal government or the state government must do on your behalf.  And that hasn't shifted, and one of the tragedies of the civil rights movement was because the civil rights movement became so court-focused, uh, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change.  And, uh, in some ways we still suffer from that.
 Does that make you want to barf, or what?

***Okay, I want this as a bumper sticker...

3:00 a.m.

***Y'know, I thought when I retired I wouldn't have to get up so early to get my work done, you know, because I'd have all day. For some reason it ain't workin' out that way!

***The Supreme Court makes a good decision with regard to gun prohibition, which of course is unconstitutional. Good on them.Notice the dissenters, though. That's the kind of jurisprudence you get when you elect liberals as president.

***About the New Black Panther case. This is sickening.

***Cowboy Hip-Hop?  ARRGGH!!

***Here's proof that the rich aren't getting there on the backs of the poor, as the liberals would have you believe. The upper income groups pay far more than their fair share in taxes. Take a look.

***Robert Byrd, RIP.

***Some good questions for Elena Kagan.

***Talk about being separated from reality. Here is Jim Moran, a Democrat of course, stating that the economy has recovered. Yeah? In what sector? I must have missed all those jobs being created.

***Another ignorant "star" heard from. This time it's Sheryl Crow.

Back At It

***Had a nice weekend. We had nice weather, albeit a little hot, and had a family reunion yesterday. My printer bit the dust Saturday, unfortunately, and I had to go buy a new one. I usually get Hewlett-Packard machines because I've always had good luck with them, but Office Max had a nice Samsung laser all-in-one on sale, so I got one of those. We'll see how I like it. So far, so good.

***Great comment!


A reason for the "wealth or income gap": Smart people keep on doing things that are smart and make them money while stupid people keep on doing things that are stupid and keep them from achieving.
People who get an education, stay off of drugs, apply themselves, and save and wisely invest their earnings do a lot better than people who drop out of school, become substance abusers, and buy fancy cars and houses that they can't afford, only to lose them.
We don't have an income gap. We have a stupid gap. Guess which group voted for Obama.

***Claw enforcement. Ewww...

***In other words, American greatness has to go, according to this president.

Hot!

***Whew, it's hot in Indiana! No complaints, though. It's a lot easier to take now that I'm 150 lbs. lighter!

***This is great. A custard stand owner asks Biden to lower his taxes, Biden thinks he's being a smart-*ss. What a jerk. I love the description of government being a "tapeworm." Margaret Thatcher was right - they will eventually run out of other peoples' money. Then what?

***Dishonesty at Rolling Stone magazine? Why, I can't believe it.

***The way things are.

I do not like these dirty crooks,

I do not like when Congress steals,

I do not like their secret deals.

I do not like this speaker, Nan ,

I do not like this 'YES WE CAN.'

I do not like this spending spree,

I'm smart, I know that nothing's free.

I do not like your smug replies,

When I complain about your lies.

I do not like this kind of hope.

I do not like it, nope, nope, nope!

Saturday!

***It's so nice not working every Saturday any more. I'm gonna take my mother yard saling this morning - she never gets enough of that. I like it too, I admit it! Who knows what treasures we'll find - that'll probably end up in MY next yard sale! Oh well, it's the thrill of the hunt, you know.

***Get well soon, VP Cheney!

***The Left hates Glenn Beck. Well, the Left hates anyone who exposes the truth about them, and love him or hate him, Glenn Beck does that very well.

***Love this cartoon! Click to enlarge:


***This is funny. Barney Frank says that Congress' low approval ratings are - wait for it - Bush's fault!

***Congress votes to stifle political speech - the Disclose Act. This really shouldn't surprise anybody.

***What would Saul Alinsky do?

***Here are some Fit Day success stories, if you need some inspiration!

***The Heritage Bookstore. There's some good stuff here!

***I started lap swimming again yesterday morning - at our outdoor public pool here in Richmond. They offer lap swimming from 6:00 a.m. - 7:00 a.m. That's a great time for me, I like to work out early. Yesterday morning it was 61 degrees, but I went anyway. The water wasn't bad - it was a little chilly when I got out, but it's worth it! I can tell I haven't done any lap swimming in a month and a half! I made it 30 minutes, though. What a great workout swimming is. I'm going to our municipal pool for the summer instead of the college pool where I go in the cold weather because it's $1.00 each time versus $5.00 each time at the college. Pretty easy choice there!

It's Friday Already??!!

***I've been so busy this week, it's gone by like a blur. I'm getting in better shape, though, so after the weekend I should be back to just crazy busy instead of insanely busy!

***Bottom line for the Democrats: Do anything to keep power. I'll bet they hate it when one of their own speaks the truth out loud.

***Here's another example of a Democrat accidentally saying what Democrats really think of their base.

***A taste of her own medicine. This is great, check it out.

***High school marching band season is here again! Even though it has been a few years since Emily was involved, I still go to the contests. Those kids work so hard, and the shows they put on are incredible. Go to a contest in your area if you get the chance.

***I still can't get over the irony and hypocrisy being displayed by Obama and the Democrats. Here's what they thought of Gen. Petraeus a couple of years ago. Now he's a hero? He is, don't get me wrong, but their duplicity here is just sickening.

***Well, THIS explains a lot. Botox limits the ability to feel emotion. Think "Lurch" Kerry and "Crazy Nancy" Pelosi.

Whew!

***Man, it feels as hot in Indiana as it did in South Carolina! It's summer, though, it's supposed to be hot. I vowed during that long winter that I wouldn't complain about the heat, so I won't!

***I'm sure you've heard that Gen. Petraeus has been picked by Obama to replace Gen. McChrystal. Funny, a couple of years ago Obama was calling this man a liar, now this same man will save his political butt in Afghanistan, and he'll do it because he's a patriot, not a politician through and through, first and foremost, like Obama and the rest of the Democrats. They were pulling for him (Petraeus) to lose when Bush was president, now they'll be all for him when their guy is in office. Why can't more people see through this crap?

***Here's the video of Obama lecturing Gen. Petraeus in 2007. What a smarmy little man our president is.

***Open letter to the president from Jon Voight. I love this guy.

***What an idiot. She can't sing any better than she can walk, in my opinion.

Back to the Grind!

***Wow, I knew I'd have some catching up to do when I got back, but sheesh! Oh well, I'm grateful to have the work.

***Some perspective on the McChrystal flap over at NRO. Take a look.

***Judge rules for some clear-eyed common sense. Obama six month moratorium on offshore drilling overturned, Ken Salazar shown for the sleaze he is. Read all about it.

***Media bias is old news, but it needs to be continually pointed out. For example, the difference in coverage when generals speak out against a Republican, and when they speak out against a Democrat.

***Man, this guy is a sleaze. Blagojevech is spilling his guts, but whether to believe him or this administration is certainly a tough choice, isn't it?

We're Baaaack!

***Boy, is that a long drive! Also, of course there was the obligatory construction site slowdown that cost us about 45 minutes to an hour - but other than that, we had a smooth drive home. Took about 12 1/2 hours, so that's not too bad. We had a wonderful time! I'm sunburned, of course, but not too bad. It was fun, but it's good to be home!

***Netbooks - I love these little things! I can't really justify spending the money, but for just surfing the 'net while on vacation they would be awesome. My Dell laptop has been great, but it's kinda heavy if you have to carry it for very long.

***The certifiable Alan Grayson is caught lying, cheating, whatever you want to call it. But hey, he's a Democrat. They won't say a word.

***Cutting aid to Iraq. Oh, let's give it to the Palestinians instead!

***Remember when George W. Bush dared to go golfing (infrequently, I might add)? Remember how it was irresponsible, ill-timed, etc? Well, it's okay when Obama does it, in fact, it's good for all of us!

***Hello from sunny Folly Beach, South Carolina!! We're having a wonderful time! It's hot, but I don't mind. Just makes the ocean feel better. It's amazing how warm the water is, it feels like bathwater.

Small and Smaller

***A small speech from a big office - by a very small man, and I'm not talking stature here. Barack Obama is really showing the country and the world how unfit and unready he is for the office he holds.

***Not sure I'd point that out... “From the very beginning of this crisis, the federal government has been in charge of the largest environmental cleanup effort in our nation’s history.”

Pressure's On...

***I have to have all of my work completely caught up when I leave Thursday, so I'm working even harder than usual! I am SO looking forward to this vacation!

***Another prime example of liberal hypocrisy and double standards. Elton John was banned from appearing in Egypt because he is gay, and you barely heard a peep from the Left. BUT, he performs at Rush Limbaugh's wedding and the hue and cry is deafening.

Success!

***My yard sale yesterday went really well. We made well over $100.00, good enough for a couple of nice meals out when we're in South Carolina, and we cleaned out a couple of closets and the garage in the process. All in all, worth the trouble.


***This is an *excellent* article on the Democrats' view of government, how we got to where we are, and how we can escape. Definitely take the time to read it. An excerpt:

President Obama was elected by an emotionally and morally exhausted populace, convinced it could find refuge from the rough battlefields of international prominence and free-market responsibility in the arms of maternal government.  The automated growth of government requires the public’s continued fatigue.

***Woman calls 911 looking for a husband. Now *that's* desperation.

***Jimmy Dean, RIP.

***AMEN. Enough, already. Public education spending is already over-the-top, and what have we gotten for it? Not better educated kids, but certainly a more powerful union. That's the goal, not education, with these people. Never forget that.


In Washington, Education Secretary Arne Duncan predicts "catastrophe" (read: unionized teacher layoffs) if states don't get another $23 billion. That's on top of the stimulus bill's $100 billion for education.

***This will make absolutely no difference. It doesn't matter how much science there is debunking the global warming hoax, morally bankrupt opportunists like Al Gore will continue to deceive their vulnerable followers by claiming that we're on the brink of worldwide disaster if we commoners (but not important people like HIM), don't drive roller skates with engines and turn off our lights. These people really are reprehensible. Here is the latest discovery by scientists proving that global warming is not causing the damage the enviro-wackos are claiming.

Redux

***Well, we got rained out yesterday, so hopefully we'll get to do the yard sale today! I cleared out the garage a bit yesterday just in case it rains again, we gotta get rid of this stuff! At least we can set it up in there if it's nasty out again.

***Ohmygosh. A tarantula cocktail? Do NOT click if you're afraid of spiders. I'm serious.

It' On!!

***It's yard sale day! Man, what an exhausting job. I hope all the effort we've put into this thing pays off!

***Great article by Jonah Goldberg on Obama's "tough talk." It really is funny listening to Barack Obama try to be macho. He is obviously not leadership material, his "kick *ss" talk notwithstanding.

***Barbara Boxer thinks global warming is our greatest national security threat. Honestly, what planet are these people from??

***Hmmmm..."smart" clothing responds to wearer's emotions. Okay, that's weird.

***Here is my advice as we begin the century that will lead to 2081.  First, guard the freedom of ideas at all costs.  Be alert that dictators have always played on the natural human tendency to blame others and to oversimplify.  And don't regard yourself as a guardian of freedom unless you respect and preserve the rights of people you disagree with to free, public, unhampered expression.  ~Gerard K.

***We'll be heading out to South Carolina in a week. Not that I'm excited about it or anything...!

***The Alien in the White House. This is a great, insightful article about President Obama. It's not just an Obama-bashing tirade, it's a thoughtful, factual piece about who he is and how he thinks. Take the time to read it.

***Makes sense to me. The more one studies economics, the more one is likely to become a Republican.

Yard Salin'!

***The Route 40 Yard Sale has been going on for the past few days. MAN, you wouldn't believe the people who line up for those things. My mom and I hit a few yesterday. I got a pair of handmade earrings, but that's all I saw. I'm looking for a mountain bike and Old Curiosity Shop china, but didn't have any luck. We're going to hit a few more today.

***Rush Limbaugh marries for the fourth time. Hope this one "takes."

***Sir Jerk. Here's Jay Nordlinger's take on Paul McCartney's dumb comment at the White House:

So, Paul McCartney is in the East Room of the White House, with President and Mrs. Obama. He is being fĂȘted because he has just won an award from the Library of Congress. He caps the evening with this remark – this is his farewell, his send-off: “After the last eight years, it’s good to have a president that knows what a library is.”

Can anyone tell me why people are such schmucks? Why they are so graceless and clueless and nasty? I mean, Paul McCartney’s like the richest, most popular, most honored musician in the world. Does he not have it in him to behave like a gentleman — or at least a non-boor — while he’s being celebrated at the White House? Does he have to be the Wanda Sykes of popular music? Is it not possible to love Obama, as McCartney does, without hating Bush — or at least insulting him on a high, non-political occasion?

I don’t care that “Penny Lane” is a pretty tune, Paul McCartney is a horse’s butt. Let me amend that: He acted like one, on Wednesday night.

What a Jerk

***I'm speaking of Paul McCartney, who apparently refuses to grow up. Here's what passes for humor in his concert at the White House:

A sweet moment, but McCartney topped it off with a bite. After thanking the Library of Congress one last time, he let it rip: “After the last eight years, it’s good to have a president that knows what a library is.”

Job Offers

***Looks like (illegally) dangling government jobs is common practice with this administration, just like looking the other way is common practice for the press if it involves a Democrat.

***Then and now. As has been said time and time again, there sure is a difference in the media regarding coverage of Bush/Katrina and Obama/BP, isn't there?

***I disagree, John. Biden *is* a bad guy. You don't look the American people in the eye and lie through your teeth day after day if you're a good guy.

***I always liked Dan Quayle. He was one of the most vilified politicians in memory, mostly because he is a decent man. The press hates that, for some reason. Remember his remarks regarding Murphy Brown? He was right, of course, but he was scorned unmercifully from the Left. Turns out some of them are realizing he was on the money.

***Now here's a movie I might want to go see...but truth to tell, I'll probably wait until the DVD. I hate to do anything to support the cesspool that is Hollywood. "Shrek Forever After" is doing well at the box office.

***Something we all know, but the press won't cover. Obama's weakness makes everyone less safe.

***The home office is humming. Well, it sure is around here!

***Patience and perseverance have a magical effect before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish.  ~John Quincy Adams

Just Passin' Through...

***I was just notified that I'll have a little extra work today, so this'll have to be quick! Hope everyone had a great three day weekend!

***Apparently the MSM and the liberal bloggers are exaggerating Israel's "atrocities" regarding the flotilla attack. Too bad we have to fact check the media as much as we do this Administration. They're becoming one and the same. Here's more.

***This is gorgeous. It's Mickey Newbury performing "American Trilogy." Check it out.

***The Sestak smell test

***Fair Tax? Well, this would be great, but we're gonna have to get quite a conservative majority in Congress and someone other than an arrogant neophyte as president before it'll happen.

***Yikes, this is weird! Tropical storm blows a hole in Guatamala City.

***Puh-Leez. Don't look for me to celebrate.

***"The only consistency in the tax systems is once a tax is imposed, it's never rescinded." ~~ Ronald Reagan

***Have a great day!
