Well, our little talk about how crazy Cass Sunstein is unleashed a comparison of expressions used here and in Australia. My old Aussie room-mate, also named Jim, when we were working on the 1978 Kenworth at the grain elevator, confused me a bit with, “Hand me the spanner. The SPANNER! It's right bloody THERE!", which I then found out was what we called a “wrench”. I also found out that “c*nt”, as in, “No worries, you c*nt.” seems to be an expression of friendship. OF COURSE I learned what "wanker" meant.
In turn, I tried to give Jim sh*t in regards to converting Metric measurements into our archaic English system. Jim: "How much is a bushell?" Me: "Oh, about three pecks and a gill." Or...Me: "It's 9:30. What time is that in Metric, Jim?"
From my wife, I learned some Swiss expressions, but most don't translate well. Es nimmt zwei Schlangen, um eine Pfütze zu kreuzen.: It takes two snakes to cross a puddle. Der Bär scheißt wherver, das er gefällt.: The bear sh*ts wherever he wants. OK, I just made those up because I couldn't think of any real ones and I like to play with Babelfish
So I thought it would be fun to throw out some of our American idioms, many of which I learned from our father, followed by a translation for those who may need it. For starters, we can throw a large portion of our expressions into the category of scatological; there seems to be an American fascination with feces. But hey, let’s face it, sh*t is funny.

She’s built like a brick sh*thouse.: A shapely woman.
Smells bad enough to knock a buzzard off a sh*twagon.: self explanatory.
The sh*t has hit the fan.: Inauguration Day, January 20, 2009.
Does a bear sh*t in the woods?: Why, of course.
Up shit creek without a paddle.: In a very bad situation.
In deep sh*t.: Getting that "hope & change" you voted for.
Well I’ll be dipped in shit.: I didn’t know that.
Sh*t or get off the pot.: Lead, follow, or get the hell outta the way.
I could sh*t through a screen door at 20 paces.: Suffering from diarrhea.

Once upon a time, until WWII, America was still Jeffersonian in that agriculture was universal. These expressions originated on the farm, and we grew up in the country, with a dad who liked to use such expressions, so many idioms involve livestock and animals.

Ain't got the sense that God gave geese.: Obama supporter.
Nervous as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.: Self explanatory.
Even a blind hog finds an acorn now and then.: Everybody gets lucky now and then.
Useless as tits on a boar.: A boar is a male hog for breeding, doesn’t give milk.
Fat as a tick.: Self explanatory.
Raining like a cow pissing on a flat rock.: Any country boy should know this one.
Two shakes of a lamb’s tail.: Real quick.
Knee high to a grasshopper.: Real small.
If it was a snake it woulda bit you.: It’s right there.
Up to my ass in alligators.: The situation ain’t good.
That dog don’t hunt.: Health care is NOT going to “pay for itself.”

Then we have a group of people-related expressions.

Busier than a 1-legged man in an ass-kicking contest.: I hope that’s self explanatory.
Sweating like a whore in church.: Perspiring heavily.
Better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick.: Could be worse.
Couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn.: Very inaccurate.
Hiring you was like losing three good men.: Not a good worker.
This is gonna take two men and a boy.: A major undertaking.
Colder than a witch’s tit in a brass brassiere.: I assume they're cold, but I've never felt one.
He/she fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down.: Really ugly.
He/she could eat sweet corn through a picket fence.: Buck toothed.
You make a better door than a window.: Get outta my way.
The Good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise.: If all goes well.
Keep your shirt on.: Don’t get in such a hurry.
You’d bitch if they hung you with a new rope.: Chronic complainer.
Ratchet jaw.: Just won’t quit talking.
Crooked as a politician.: Pretty obvious, that one.
Don’t piss down my back and tell me it’s raining.: Health care IS NOT, REPEAT NOT, GOING TO “pay for itself”.

We could on like this for days, but I’ll leave it up to the rest of you to keep ‘em coming.

Gun Nut Roundup - October '09

Supreme Court to Hear McDonald v. Chicago

The U.S. Supreme Court will again be reviewing a case dealing with the Second Amendment. Last year the court ruled in its historic Heller decision that the Second does, in fact, protect an individual right. However, the Heller decision only shielded the Second Amendment from federal abuse.

The law in question in the new case is a municipal gun ban in Chicago (the Devil's lair), which means if the Court strikes it down, the Second Amendment will officially be "incorporated" against state and local laws by the Fourteenth Amendment.

Representing the good guys in McDonald v. Chicago is attorney Alan Gura, the same man who won the Heller case for gun owners. Wish 'em luck.

Poll Shows Public Support for Second Amendment (Again)

A Rasmussan Reports national survey released this month shows record-low levels of support for more gun control. Key findings include:

  1. 71% of Americans believe the U.S. Constitution protects the right of ordinary citizens to own guns
  2. 69% say city governments do NOT have the power to ban handguns
  3. 63% agree with the Supreme Court's Heller decision.
  4. 50% are opposed to stricter gun laws, 11% are unsure, and only 39% favor stricter laws.
RINO Governor Schwarzenegger Signs Registration Law
California's bulging governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a law requiring people purchasing ammunition be fingerprinted and registered. Mail order ammo sales would be prohibited. Retailers would also have to store ammunition where customers can't get at it. No law enforcement organization supported the bill and 15 sheriffs publicly opposed it.
Gun owners know all too well that crazy laws that start on the left coast soon get imported to their own states. Keep your eyes peeled and your powder dry.

You just can't make this wacko stuff up, folks.

Here's a little more for the too-bizarre-to-be-made-up category. Cass Sunstein (named after Mamma Cass? Could be.) is the Obama White house Administrator of the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs (aka Csar #1,239), a title vague enough for him to poke his little rat nose into just about anything. Obama and the O-bots call him a "legal scholar". People with functioning brains refer to him as "flat-out batshit crazy nutcase wacko".

Shall we take a look at what our "legal scholar" believes in? Well, for starters there's animal rights, in the radical form seen above in the PETA propaganda posters. Sunstein compares farming & ranching livestock to “a form of unconscionable barbarity not the same as, but in many ways morally akin to, slavery and mass extermination of human beings.” and wants an immediate ban of all hunting. Fishing is in line to be thrown on the chopping block, too. OF COURSE, trapping is the epitome of evil itself. A vegetarian, or vegan, or whatever the hell they're calling themselves these days, Cass wants to force all the rest of us, via government regulation, to quit eating meat as well.

He also believes that dogs are smarter than human babies and that animals have the legal "right" to sue and be represented by attorneys in a court of law. I'm thumbing through the Constitution right now and I sure can't find that "right". Quite the "legal scholar", eh. Interpreting the law apparently means just making up any ol' thing you please out of thin air. If it weren't for the Obama Administration and the Leftist press lapdogs, this clown would probably be in a padded room somewhere eating crayons.

But wait, there's more!! Jumping on the ever popular Obama Marxist "redistribution of wealth" band wagon, Cass wants to redistribute the wealth of the United States to every little dirtbag country around the world. Like that hasn't been happening for decades, anyway. It goes without saying that he's a Global Warming/Al Gore worshipper and so anti-Second Amendment that the mere sight of a Daisy Red Ryder BB gun would make him flee from the room screaming like a school girl.

Mr. Bigshot Legal Scholar also apparently wants to do away with the Supreme Court, as well."There is no reason to believe that in the face of statutory ambiguity, the meaning of federal law should be settled by the inclinations and predispositions of federal judges. The outcome should instead depend on the commitments and beliefs of the President and those who operate under him," argued Sunstein.
If that kind of government isn't intrusive enough, Mr. Sunstein also thinks your body belongs to Big Brother. If Obama's death panels don't get you, Cass is coming after your internal organs, whether you're dead or alive. In some crazy book he wrote, Sunstein called this "routine removal," and posited that "the state owns the rights to body parts of people who are dead or in certain hopeless conditions, and it can remove their organs without asking anyone's permission."

Just guessing here, but I don't think ol' Mama Cass is a Constitutionalist, Libertarian, or Christian. In fact, I don't believe he's ever read the Constitution. I'm telling you, folks, you just can't make this garbage up. This administration and its bizarre hangers-on are just plain nuts.

As for this Constitutionalist carnivore, it's opening day of the general hunting season here in Montana so, in honor of Mr. Sunstein, I think I'll go out and blast Bambi with a .30-06 and then feast on delicious backstrap butterfly venison steaks so rare and bloody that a good veterinarian could bring the critter back. Bite this, Cass.

Well here's a big surprise. Yet another Obama csar (BTW, he has more presidentialy-created csars than both Bushes and Clinton combined...a nice way to have a select corps of puppet-like robot thugs who answer only to you and evade Senate confirmation) has come out in support of Chinese Communist dictator and mass-murderer (let's give him a big Obama Administration hand, ladies and gentlemen) Chairman Mao Tezung.
Judging from the company he keeps, it is apparently a requirement that one must be either a Communist or a tax cheat, or both, to be a member of the Obama cabinet or one of his army of approximately 2,372 (and counting) csars. Fanatical environmental wacko nutcases can, of course, get a waiver for having paid taxes if they promise not to do so in the future.
To those not familiar with this particular socialist weasel and latest Mao fan, Ron Bloom was "Car Czar" and is Csar for Manufacturing Policy. The White house says Bloom will "work closely with the National Economic Council, providing leadership on policy development and strategic planning for the President's agenda to revitalize the manufacturing sector..." That's quite a handful for someone whose vast expertise in business and manufacturing includes only being an SEIU negotiator/thug and a petty bureaucrat. I do hear, though, that he is attending "Community Organizer" night school classes to improve his qualifications.
Below we see an example of Bloom working with the unions to spend huge wads of stimulus money "to integrate existing programs and develop new initiates affecting the manufacturing sector" by constructing this new CM (Congressional Motors) automobile plant in South Chicago, to stimulate the depressed local economy. "When this efficient new green-powered automobile plant comes on-line, three years late and $18.7 billion over budget, Chicago's economy will be booming while they manufacture a government-mandated eco-friendly version of the Yugo, to be named the Pelosi GTxi SS/RT Sport Edition. We think it will be in great demand, if we ever get the factory built. This is what we have so far, following Mao's Great Leap Forward methods, after a mere six months of construction and $37.2 billion spent. Pretty snazzy, hunh?"

Anyway, to finally get to the real stuff, here's the now famous Mao quotes good ol' Ron spewed forth in a speech to (surprise!) unions.
"We know that the free market is nonsense" and "We kind of agree with Mao that political power comes largely from the barrel of a gun."

Confronted about this speech later by Fox News, Bloom twisted around like a ferret, began to roll his eyes and froth at the mouth, and commented, "Hey, I was just kidding around. Making a little joke. Besides, what the hell do you know about anything? I went to Harvard. And if you don't shut up I'll send the (expletive deleted) tanks to run over your (expletive deleted) ass and crush your so-called news organization into a blazing Waco-like ruin, you (expletive deleted). Die, you (expletive deleted), die! I'll kill you! I'll kill you all! BWAHAHAHAHA!!!!"
Disconcerted by the severity of this outburst, every single channel of the Mainstream "news" Media immediately ran nearly identical stories about an elderly man in Florida whose poodle (Snookums) was eaten by an alligator.
Join us next time when Commune-With-Plants and Save-the-Sasquatch Csar Richard "Cindy" Noggin reveals he/she/it engages in human sacrifice for the purpose of satan worship and also believes itself to be the reincarnation of Vladimir Lenin.

Americans Beat 10 Biggest Armies; Still Going!

Earlier in the year we reported that in the first quarter of 2009 American citizens had purchased enough firearms to equip the Chinese and Indian armies. This was based on the number of NICS background checks performed during gun sales.

Pleased with the achievement, we issued the "Ben and Bawb's Blog 10 Army Challenge," wherein Americans were encouraged to buy enough firearms in 2009 to theoretically equip the world's ten largest armies. We needed 10,226,000 gun sales to equal the troops in these armies. In the first six months of 2009 the American people knocked out the top five of the ten armies.

Now the third-quarter results are in and the winner is… FREEDOM! [Cue sirens and confetti drop.] You did it America! [Cue scantily-clad bikini models to dance around Ben and Bawb, gyrating suggestively.]

According to Big Brother at the FBI, so far this year, Americans have bought 10,169,435 firearms. Although that is just shy of the 10,226,000 needed, there are plenty of gun sales that Uncle Sugar don’t know about, so: “Close enough! We win! We win!"

For those of you keeping score at home, the American citizenry just bested: China, U.S. Gov’t Forces, India, Russia, N. Korea, S. Korea, Pakistan, Iran, Turkey, and Egypt. Eat our dust, losers!

Now that we’ve got the “Big 10” wrapped up, we can spend the rest of the year mopping up the little snot-nosed, pantywaist armies. If we continue at our pace of about 1,000,000 gun sales per month, we can wipe out:

  • Indonesia (If that's a real country, let's beat it!)
  • Thailand (Insert "Bangkok" joke here.)
  • Syria (Sounds like a girl's name!)
  • Taiwan (You'd be speaking Chinese if it wasn't for us!)
  • Brazil (The movie named after you sucked!)
  • Germany (Schprechen sie shut up!)
  • Italy (Please!)
  • Japan (Damn right "a rifle behind every blade of grass.")
  • France (Oh, we‘ve got to beat these wussies.)
  • United Kingdom (Burn our capital will ya?)
  • Mexico (Let's drive 'em loco.)
  • Israel (Shalom, bitch!)
That would be the top 22 armies in the world and the American people would be toting more guns than all of them. That would be awesome!

So come on, America! We can’t stop now. Make the world (and your own president) nervous. Buy more guns!


Blasphemous as it may sound, I really thought I had enough guns. But, now that I've seen Henry Repeating Arms standing up on their hind legs against the forces of socialism and fascism in this country, I guess I'll have to buy just one more.

My Rifle, My Bible and Me
By Stuart Elliott

Part of a new print ad for Henry guns; a new TV commercial plays up the brand’s origins as made in the United States.A gun maker that has been drawing attention with campaigns in the mainstream media is planning new TV and print ads that are likely to gain notice — if not notoriety.

Henry Repeating Arms, based in Bayonne, N.J., is one of the few gun makers that advertises to general audiences. Its most recent campaign has been centered on the fact that its guns are made in the United States, at factories in Bayonne and Rice Lake, Wis.

A television commercial features factory scenes. A print ad, which shows a hand resting on a Bible as if in court, carries the headline “Henry rifles will only be made in America or they won’t be made at all.”

A new TV spot, to begin running on Monday, depicts a man going through his house, getting rid of anything not made in America. As he checks the labels and tags on his possessions and notices they are made in Mexico or India or China, out they go — from his TV set to his sofa to a chair in which his mother-in-law sits.

About the only thing left is the Henry rifle hanging on a plaque over the fireplace. He checks it, sees its country of origin label and puts it back in place.

The new print ad borrows the Bible from the previous one, with a twist: A man wears a holster with a gun on one side and a Bible on the other.
“There is nothing wrong with clinging to your guns and religion,” the headline reads, quoting Anthony Imperato, president at Henry, in a clear reference to a remark last year by Barack Obama before he was elected president.

Mr. Imperato, in a telephone interview on Thursday, said he planned a “test run of the ‘Bible holster’ ad” to gauge the response.

“It’s a very serious subject when you’re using the Bible in an ad,” he explained — not to mention when you’re making statements like those in the text of the ad, which include “During this past presidential election folks like us were mocked for our beliefs, but we know better.”

Henry is hedging its bets a bit in the prospective print ad. After declaring, “We believe in God, Our Country and Our Freedoms,” the ad goes on to say: “If you do too, we’d love to hear from you. If you don’t, that’s fine too — it’s another freedom we’re proud of and we apologize if this ad has offended you.”

“There is a little bit of trepidation” about the potential print ad, Mr. Imperato said, although it may have the effect of helping the company “sell a ton of Bible holsters.”

(That actually was a joke; there is only one so far, created for the print ad.)

National TV channels have accepted Henry’s commercials, Mr. Imperato said, including CNBC, CNN, Fox News Channel and MSNBC. But some local cable system operators have rejected them. In the print media, acceptance varies widely, he added.

The company spends from $1.2 million to $2 million each year on media advertising.

There are rules to such gun advertising, among them that gun makers may not offer their products for sale directly to consumers. The campaigns, current and forthcoming, offer lists of local dealers, catalogs and a toll-free telephone number.

The media agency for Henry is Everyday Media in Garrison, N.Y. The new commercial was produced by Sherpa Productions in New York, based on a concept from Mr. Imperato and Everyday Media.

Well, it’s been awhile since I beat up on the moron RNC neo-cons, aka “Socialist Party B” on your ballot. A friend of mine recently pointed out that the GOP is definitely not the party of “small government” anymore (not that they’ve even faked it since Reagan). The Republicrats want a huge, bloated, rich, powerful, omnipotent Federal government every bit as much as the Democrats do; they just want to be in charge of it themselves. With widespread dissatisfaction growing against the Democrats and their disastrous fiscal policies, the GOP smells what they call a sweeping comeback in 2010. We’d like to find out how they plan to make that “comeback” happen.

So, in an exclusive interview, Benandbawbsblog talks to Republican National Committee Chief Assistant Flunky Vichy Milquetoast.

BBB: Welcome, Mr. Milquetoast.

VM: (Yawning). Come, come peasant. Let’s get this over with. I am a busy and important man.

BBB: OK, we’ll jump right in. We noticed that in the upcoming Missbraskasaw 2010 mid-term Congressional race, the RNC has thrown its full weight and influence behind the nomination of Judas Kolectiv over staunch conservative former governor Em Tegritty. This has caused quite a stir amongst the conservative base in Missbraskasaw.

VM: Kolectiv is a staunch conservative. The RNC says so. Who are you proletariat scum to question us?

BBB: Well, it’s hard to miss the fact that Kolectiv’s voting record and public stances supported the Stimulus Plan, the Patriot Act, abortion, massive tax increases, massive spending increases, nationalization of several key industries, the Baucus Healthcare “reform” bill, government-run pre-schools, Cap-and-Tax, the Kyoto Protocol, amnesty for illegals…

VM: (Sniffing) The NRA gave him a C-Minus. Now that’s conservative! Peon.

BBB: The GOA gave him an F-Minus. The Missbraskasaw Conservative Coalition rated him “present” on a scale of one to ten. Citizens Against Government Waste voted him “Swine of the Year”. The…

VM: (Slamming fist on table) Silence! He has an [R] behind his name on the ballot. That is enough. (Leaning back) You clodhoppers really must learn to listen to your betters. We are of the Ruling Class. We know the path to success.

BBB: Would that be the same brilliant path you took in the 2008 campaign?

VM: Of course. Simpleton.

BBB: Um, in case you hadn’t noticed, that didn’t work out so well. Huge sections of your base just stayed home on election night. Rush Limbaugh stayed home, for Pete’s sake. Many, many supposedly Republican supporters found the choices you gave them too repulsive to contemplate. You guys got your asses handed to you.

VM: (Huffing again) Dolt! Our plan was brilliant. But that hillbilly scum Palin pulled us down. This time, we’ll run a true representative of pure Republicanism, someone like Arlen Specter, for Veep, and move the entire party even further left. We have our sage course to the future flawlessly charted out in our Grand Master Plan. I wouldn’t expect you bumpkins in the washed masses to understand Grand Strategy.

BBB: Sounds like you’re alienating your base even further. The Tea Party and Townhall patriots hate your guts every bit as much as they do Dems. The few remaining Republicans among them have already pulled the plug on donations and they plan to either stay home or leave the party outright in droves, seeking some party, any party, that will offer them a candidate with even an ounce of integrity. How can that be a winning strategy?

VM: (Scoffs) Everyone knows a Third Party has no chance to win. Only someone with an [R] behind his name can possibly win. Even you hayseeds want to vote for a winner.

BBB: So, by that reasoning, if the Democrats ran Joseph Stalin, the Republicans ran Adolph Hitler, and the Constitution Party ran Thomas Jefferson, we should vote for Adolph because he “can win”.

VM: Yes, that’s about it. We don’t expect you imbeciles to understand. It’s above you. Just do as you’re told and keep your mouths shut; we don’t want your input. Now, I really must dispense with this “grassroots” interview silliness. I am due to give a speech before the SEIU; they are paying me $50,000 to speak. (Huffs) You small-town buffoons expect me to grant interviews for nothing.

BBB: Oh, we’ve got a little something for you to take home with you.

VM: Well, it’s about time. Say, why are you tearing open that feather pillow? Why do I smell boiling tar?

BBB: Hang on. You’ll know in just a minute.

What with White House Communications Director Anita Dunn communicating that she is a great admirer of the “philosopher” Mao “Moe” Zedong for his ability to “get ‘er done”, perhaps it’s time for another history lesson.

It’s rather unfortunate that these little history check-ups are necessary, but as the old saying goes, “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.” Very few products spewed forth by our modern public education system have much knowledge of history, American or otherwise, other than perhaps knowing who the first lesbian to climb Denali was. That’s because, after 16 years of now Education Secretary Arne Duncan and his pals like Barack Obama and Bill Ayers “fixing” the Chicago school systems, the kids are still too busy dodging bullets and falling debris from crumbling school buildings to make it to class. The few American youth who have ever heard of Chairman Mao probably did so either from an old Beetles song, or from an NEA-approved teacher swooning over his brilliant "philosophy".

So let’s take a look back at Mao waxing philosophic. Mao Zedung was the first “Chairman” of the Communist Party in China, born in 1893 and died in 1976, and he single-handedly ruled the most populous country on earth with an iron fist for over 3 decades. Those thought to be even a potential threat to his power didn’t live long.

Of course Mao was converted to Marxism while studying in universities, a trend that continues to this day in American colleges. Taking all he had learned, Mao attempted a Communist uprising in 1927. When that failed, Mao retreated to the mountains, joined forces with other insurgents, and instituted guerrilla warfare.

In a dispute over command of the guerrilla army there, Mao began honing his “leadership” techniques. His opponents and the men loyal to them were tortured and murdered. The tortures included having red-hot steel rifle cleaning rods shoved up the victim’s anus. Estimates of Mao’s first “philosophical body count” range from “tens of thousands” to over 150,000.

Other notable events of the time included the Long March to save the remnants of the guerrilla Red Army from destruction and a little thing called World War II, which not many American students have heard of either. During the war, both the Chinese Nationalists and the Communists spent about as much time fighting each other as the Japanese, vying for control of post-war China.

In 1949 Mao and his forces won all the marbles and established the People’s Republic of China. The Chairman sent in and micro-managed the Red Army to fight against the United States and the United Nations in the Korean War in 1950. At home, his “philosophy” was to secure his own personal dictatorial power by murdering as many as 5 million political opponents (or suspected political opponents, or innocent people who could be used as an example) and sentencing another 1,500,000 or so to gulags or concentration camps cheerfully renamed “Reform Through Labor” camps. Rather like the Nazis’ Arbeit macht frei logo on the gates of their concentration camps…”Work makes you free”.

Mao then implemented numerous “reforms” (redistribution of wealth was first on the list) and a typical Commie “5-Year Plan” that resulted in a few million more dead Chinese people. In 1958, Moe decided to do ‘er up right and jumped into his second 5-Year Plan known as the New Deal. No, wait, my mistake, that was something else. It was known as the Great Leap Forward.

Mao announced, “I will invest in the core infrastructure -- roads, bridges, locks, dams, water systems and essential air service -- that rural communities need." Whoops. Messed up again. That was an Obama promise during the campaign.

Anyway, having killed off just about every professional or educated person in the country, Mao relied on idiot bureaucrats and party hacks with absolutely no knowledge of what they were doing to implement his Great Leap. Many of the roads, bridges, locks, dams and water systems turned out to be completely dysfunctional since they were designed by government flunkies rather than trained engineers. To produce huge quantities of steel and meet completely unrealistic government quotas to grow China’s industrial might, villagers melted all their pots and pans down in backyard kilns to produce useless lumps of crude pig iron. Burning wood in home-made furnaces was inefficient to begin with, the requirement denuded local forests, and valuable manpower was taken away from agriculture.

The wise Chairman had philosophized about that, too. A major part of the Leap was to greatly increase the food supply through more government “innovations”. Naturally, these innovations turned out to be wasteful, inefficient, idiotic government “improvements” that no farmer in his right mind ever would have attempted. Food production plunged, but local Party officials continued to turn in grossly inflated harvest “success” figures to appease the central government and make themselves look good.

All this led, in turn, to the Great Chinese Famine. Even where crops were successful, men to harvest them had been diverted to the other great infrastructure projects so that in some cases the desperately needed food rotted in the fields. To make things worse, another brilliant step of the Great Leap had been a huge nation-wide effort to kill off all the sparrows, so they wouldn’t eat grain seeds. Well, it turned out, with no birds to keep them in check, locust populations swelled to incredible proportions and they devoured every crop field in their path.

In the end, Mao’s brilliant philosophizing and the Great Leap Forward, aka the Red Chinese Stimulus Package, led to another 30,000,000 corpses. No one knows for sure how many people died thanks to Chairman Mao. A low end estimate is put at 35,000,000, not including the famines, to 70,000,000 dead with them included. Either way, the numbers make Hitler look like a piker.

So, we can see why Obama Administration officials admire the big Commie lug so much.

This is absolutely hysterical. Check out MISSOURAH.com. Ben, all Iowans must henceforth stop making Missouri jokes.


NAZI PROPAGANDA POSTER: "This person suffering from hereditary defects costs the community 60,000 Reichsmarks during his lifetime. Fellow German, that is your money, too.”

AMERICAN VETERANS ADMINISTRATION HANDBOOK: “I can no longer contribute to my family’s well being,” “I am a severe financial burden on my family.” “My situation causes severe emotional burden for my family.”
Although comparing the anointed one, Barack Hussein Obama, to Adolph Hitler is strictly taboo and liable to get my door kicked in by jackboots for having the temerity to do so, I figure we might as well enjoy what little time and freedom we still have left in the country and run with it. To anyone still paying attention, the ideas, policies, and quotes of the Hitler Administration bear frightening similarities to those of the Obama Administration and his wacko cronies.

Don’t believe it? The two above examples come, respectively, from the Nazi Propaganda Ministry and the Veteran’s Administration, both letting us know that “useless mouths” ought to be put down like old dogs. It is easy enough to tell the difference between these examples of German Socialism and American Socialism, mainly because the first one is written in Deutsche.

What if we just cite some specific quotes and throw them out there to see who can really tell the difference between the Nazis and the O-Bots? We’ll take out the obvious gimmes like “fuhrer” or “president” and “Americans” or “Germans” from the quotations, but leave the rest of the content for you to ponder.

A) Dr. Joseph Mengele
B) Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel
C) Dr. Phil

Question #2: Who said: “We’re going to have to, if you’re very old, we’re not going to give you all that technology and all those drugs for the last couple of years of your life to keep you maybe going for another couple of months. It’s too expensive…so we’re going to let you die.”

So much to cover this week. First, hats off to Senator Edward Kennedy. It has been reported that he has been clean & sober for over 3 weeks now. Way to go Ted!

Then there’s this article from the June 2004 archives of the East African Standard newspaper, under the headline of.
Kenyan-born US Senate hopeful, Barrack Obama, appeared set to take over the
Illinois Senate seat after his main rival, Jack Ryan, dropped out of the race on
Friday night amid a furor over lurid sex club allegations.

If mere African newspapers aren’t reliable enough (they aren’t, unless they agree with the American state-run media’s template de jour) how about the Honolulu Advertiser from January 2006?
"Very rarely have I met a more impressive person than Tammy Duckworth," said
Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., in an article the day before she announced her
candidacy Dec. 18. "She just has the poise and exudes the type of character that
I think would make her an astounding public servant."

Duckworth is happy to point out that she and Hawai'i-raised Punahou
graduate Obama have "a kama'aina connection."

Both were born outside the country — Obama in Indonesia, Duckworth
in Thailand — and graduated from high school in Honolulu — Punahou and McKinley,

It would appear that Winston Smith, down at the Ministry of Truth, has been asleep at the switch in his job of sanitizing history for the benefit of Big Brother.

Another interesting tidbit yours truly stumbled across is a little old thing called House Rule XIII (3)(d)(1), which requires:

"Each report of a committee on a public bill or public joint resolution shall
contain the following: A statement citing the specific powers granted to
Congress in the Constitution to enact the law proposed by the bill or joint

Seems they take that one even less seriously than that silly “protect and defend” oath they all took. And yet, with the help of a totally corrupt media and a population of sheeple, they remain in power rather than being booted out on their butts or, perhaps, ridden out of town on a rail covered with tar and feathers.

Now, just to make sure nobody reminds them of silly little things like the Constitution and their own rules, Attorney General Eric “Heinrich” Holder has used our tax dollars to hire a “Blog Squad”, no doubt hired from fair, unbiased and reasonable folks such as those found at Democratic Underground, Moveon.Org, and the Manson Family. Their purpose? According to the Muffled Oar:

Not only is the Department of Justice Blog Squad going to reach out to
nontraditional media like TPM Muckraker or the Muffled Oar, but they are also
tasked with fostering anonymous comments at conservative leaning blogs such as
the Free Republic. They are also tasked with fostering anonymous comments, or
comments under pseudonyms, at newspaper websites with stories critical of the
Department of Justice, Holder and President Obama.

If indeed this is
what DOJ media outreach does, it would most certainly qualify as “astroturfing.”
Astroturfing is the action of using fake commenters and multiple screen names on
all sorts of sites to push a similar opinion to create the appearance of a grass
roots movement and make it seem as if there are all sorts of individuals
naturally supporting a product or political movement.

It most certainly
is a creepy, propagandistic sort of effort that Holder’s office is involved in,
and it is one that certainly seems an immoral one. After all, it most certainly
is lying to the public if there are a handful of DOJ employees casting about on
hundreds of different websites pretending that they are just your average
citizen coming to the support of the Obama administration. But is it illegal?
Hans von Spakovsky of National Review’s the corner blog certainly thinks so.
Your tax dollars at work, boys and girls. See you in the Gulags.

Pork Death-Flu Update*

As the H1N1 "swine flu" epidemic spreads, the federal government is ramping up its efforts to battle the effects of the illness.

As we previously reported, Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack recently asked reporters to stop calling it "swine flu" because this was causing financial hardship for the folks that are "makin' the bacon:" the American farmer, who, despite (or because of) 70 plus years of government "assistance," are now (as always) on the verge of bankruptcy. As a dutiful member of the press, I will heed the commands of the Obama administration underling and will now refer to the terrifying illness as "Pork Death-Flu."

In an effort to "pork" the taxpayer, Vilsack also recently announced that the USDA would use an additional $30 million of "stimulus" money to buy unwanted pork products to help out hog producers. This is on top of the previous $151 million of "stimulus" funds that the USDA already spent buying up unneeded piggy parts this year.

The U.S. Surgeon General (C. Everett Koop or the masturbation lady or whoever it is now) has also recently joined in the fight against Pork Death-Flu. The Surgeon General's office recently issued a press release urging pork producers to wear proper protection when making sweet, sweet love to their swine.

There may be relief in sight against the dread illness however. U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius recently held a press conference about the federal government's newest vaccine against Pork Death-Flu.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is calling the new vaccine "Formula 999." Unlike traditional vaccines which are usually given via injection, "999" is slowly released from a small sub-dermal (just beneath the skin) implant, allowing one implant to protect the user year after year. The implant will be implanted in the back of the recipient's hand.

Sebelius warns that citizens who refuse the new implants will be ineligible for government benefits and children not inoculated this way will be unable to register for school, in an effort to stop the spread of the illness.

At the conference, Sebelius showed off her own newly installed implant. In order to allow authorities to visually verify a citizen's compliance, the implant's formula number is visible through the skin on the back of the hand, although, from this reporter's vantage point, the 9's looked more like 6's.

So rest easy America. Your government is on the case against Pork Death-Flu. Oink, and out!

Ha-Ha! Now that's funny!

Blasphemy! Sacrilege! Harsh! Heresy! Profanity! Outrage! Sinful!

Saturday Night Live has been doing skits about U.S. Presidents since Chevy Chase stumbled and bumbled and knocked everyone down in the vicinity as Gerald Ford. That makes six previous administrations who've been lampooned, along with sundry other political characters. My all-time favorite had to be Dana Carvey playing both Bush Senior and Ross Perot in a faux campaign debate. "Lookeee here! Look at the pie chart!" Even mere presidential candidates have been ridiculed. The stuff about Sarah Palin, Bob Dole, and even Hillary Clinton certainly could have been called harsh.

Now, however, that the Great & Powerful 0 has been lampooned just like Ford, Carter, Reagan, both Bushes, and Clinton, it is suddenly out-of-bounds, underhanded and "harsh" for SNL to do such a horrible, unfair thing to "The One". I hear PMSNBC's Softball Chris "Tingly Leg" Matthews has locked himself into the shrine he built to the Big 0, from which wailing, gnashing of teeth, and rending of garmets can be heard.

In the other state-run news outlets, the talking and writing heads have received their marching order talking points from the Whitehouse Press Secretary and are mindlessly, dutifully regurgitating them for public consumption, especially the key word "harsh".

"Saturday Night Live" opened its show with a particularly harsh send-up of President Obama last night."

"...a skit that offered a harsh critique of his accomplishments..."

"Some felt SNL was too harsh on the president..."

"...the SNL Obama skit that opened this week’s show was harsh..."

"Some say it’s about time SNL waded in on Obama, others think Saturday Night Live was too harsh."

"SNL’s skit of President Obama and his many failures was pretty harsh..."

Other Ministry of Truth robots, CNN and Yahoo News (about the same journalistic skill and integrity as far as I can tell) actually had to snootily FACT CHECK the comedy skit to dispute the accuracy of its claims. It's a flipping COMEDY SKIT!

Now the Big Zero himself has descended upon his cloud to refute the COMEDY SKIT, the same kind of skit that's been going on for everyone else for over three decades. Why does he think all of the rules that apply to everyone else do not apply to him? Why does he think he's utterly above any reproach, criticism, or even accountability? When was the last time some Mainstream Pravda or Tass FACT CHECKED the contents of an Obama speech? Now there's some fertile ground.

To the O and his O-Bots I gotta go with Sergeant Hulka (Warren Oates) from the movie Stripes: "Lighten up, Francis."

We have been told by our fearless leaders not to worry about the cost of Obamacare; it will pay for itself. And certainly it will never morph into some Pandora's box of ever increasing cost, control, and bureaucracy. At this point, I'm hoping that only a few dozen sheeple, Acorn and Service Workers Union folks, and maybe some of the really stupid domestic animals like cows and sheep still believe such tripe, but then I've grossly underestimated the stupidity of the American people before.

To educate those last remaining die-hard dimwits who still believe government is the solution and keeps its promises, let's step into the Way-Back Machine with Richard A. Viguerie and Steven J. Allen. Seldom do I post an entire article from someone else, but this one is too good, detailing the long string of lies, gross cost-overruns, and failed programs that is American politics. And Obamacare will be different how?

Politicians Earned Distrust

By Richard A. Viguerie and Steven J. Allen

Politicians lie. A few politicians are honest. Sometimes, even, what appears to be politicians' lying is just incompetence and cluelessness. The point is that when politicians are trying to sell the public on a big program, they don't let the actual costs and consequences of the program get in the way.

In fact, the next time a tax or a program costs what politicians say will be the first time.

In 1913, proponents of a federal income tax promised that only the top one-half of 1 percent of income earners would be subject to the tax, with the maximum tax on the super-rich at 7 percent. How did that work out?

In 1936, we were promised in an official pamphlet that the Social Security tax would rise gradually until it hit 3 percent from the employee and 3 percent from the employer on the first $3,000 of income. "That is the most you will ever pay," according to the pamphlet. Today, the maximum Social Security tax, adjusted for inflation, is eight times that amount. With the Medicare tax, it's 10 times that amount.

In the official pamphlet, Americans were told that "the United States government will set up a Social Security account for you" - saving your money as in a bank account. No such accounts were set up. The pamphlet promised, "The checks will come to you as a right." The Supreme Court ruled later that there is no such right.

Medicare, in the mid-1960s, was likewise sold to the American people with false promises. The Johnson administration projected that the cost of Medicare in 1990, inflation included, would be $12 billion. The actual figure was almost 10 times as much.

Today, adjusted for inflation, Medicare costs nearly 900 percent more than it did in 1970. Compared to the size of the population, the cost has increased about 600 percent. Compared to the size of the economy, the cost has quadrupled. That's without counting the prescription
drug benefit that was added to the Medicare program during George W. Bush's administration.

Today, the unfunded liability of Medicare works out to more than $700,000 for each family in America - which means that the Medicare liability alone will eventually bankrupt the country, if the country's not already bankrupted by other programs.

The people paying for Medicare were cheated. So were Medicare beneficiaries. The Medicare Act of 1965 prohibited the government from restricting the provision of medicine or medical
services, or the compensation therefor, or the selection of health care providers. Today, Medicare is so restrictive that Obamacare advocates cite it as a model for controlling costs.

Where are the politicians who knew, or should have known, that the rosy claims about Medicare were phony? Today, most are retired and living the high life, or they're gone on to the afterlife. None will pay an earthly price for being crooked, disingenuous or clueless.

Conversely, what happened to those who warned that Medicare would bankrupt America? They were libeled as heartless and hateful toward senior citizens, and, as a result, many of them were defeated for re-election or never got elected in the first place.

But it's more than just Social Security and Medicare.

Of the Civil Rights Act of 1965, Hubert Humphrey said: "If the senator can find in Title VII any language which provides that an employer would have to hire on the basis of percentage or quota related to color, race, religion, or national origin, I will start eating the pages one after another, because it is not in there." Today, racial discrimination, including the "affirmative" kind, is ingrained in the policies of universities, major corporations and the government.

Politicians who called themselves Keynesians promised falsely, especially in the 1930s and the '70s, that government could spend our way to prosperity.

Politicians promised the United Nations would promote the democratic, freedom-loving values of the American people rather than the values of the thieves and dictators who control the majority of the United Nations member states.

History proves voters cannot trust politicians. They can't trust politicians' allies in the
bureaucracy, the media or academia.

Today, Americans' level of skepticism has risen, yet they are mocked and criticized for that. The political elite have grown increasingly desperate, and their claims increasingly preposterous. Voter skepticism, though, intensifies with every media "fact check" that turns out to be false (no new taxes on the middle class in the health care plan, no coverage for illegal immigrants or for abortions - yeah, right). Does any sane person really believe Obamacare is going to pay for
itself, or that it's going to be paid for by tax increases only on the rich?

Voters have learned to apply greater skepticism to each and every claim politicians make, and are calling them on their promises. At Tea Parties and Town Halls, in blogs and in protest marches, Americans are declaring: Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me. Fool me for a hundredth time - well, that just ain't gonna happen.

Richard A. Viguerie, chairman of ConservativeHQ.com, pioneered the use of direct mail in politics and has been called "one of the creators of the modern conservative movement" by the Nation magazine. Steven J. Allen, a journalist and political analyst, is the creator of the satirical comic strip "The Gentleman From Lickskillet."

It’s been painfully obvious to me for quite some time that the GOP, especially the RNC, doesn’t want any input from the rank and file. In fact, they’ve gotten to the point of trying to shut their base out of the process altogether. I think the support Ron Paul got scared the poop out of them the most. They feared he would listen to the people, obey the Constitution, and not dance correctly when they pulled the strings.

One of the ways to negate the threat of a free conservative candidate was discovered by the Montana GOP. They now have a spiffy new “caucus” several weeks before the actual primaries for electing a presidential candidate. In these cauci, only a tiny select handful of hand-picked GOP party faithful….1,300 in the whole state if IIRC…are allowed to cast votes. Oh, sometimes, they’ll put on a little dog-and-pony show where they allow the public to stand up and bitch or pitch for their choice, but then they totally ignore the base rubes and go ahead and pick whomever their party handlers told them to pick. There is still a “real” primary election later on where the peasants are allowed to vote, but the choice has already long since become a done deal.

Likewise, if you oppose the choice your betters have selected for you, they don’t want to hear about it. Emails and letters to both the state GOP and RNC go unanswered if you don’t agree with them. Hell, even if you send him a “You’re doing a *&$#$^ job!” letter, increasingly left-leaning Democrat Senator Max Baucus at least bothers to respond, even if those responses are pretty much just form letters. The GOP ignores and snubs their own base.

Of course, they still find the time to constantly contact you with e-mails and fliers in which they pat themselves on the back for doing such a great job and then demand more money from you. I feel sorry for RNC Chairman Michael Steele, who apparently is delusional and going off the deep end. The last time I heard from him in a Beg-A-Thon letter he addressed me as “Dear fellow conservative”. Fellow conservative?!?!? Oh, I got a good laugh over that knee-slapper.

So basically…and this goes for both parties…your “betters” are gonna run the show with as little input from the washed masses as possible. Notice how the tea parties and town hall protests scare the living daylights out of them and they and the state-run media do their best to ignore and then marginalize the voice of the people. My God, you give them an inch and the next thing you know they’ll be wanting a Constitutional republic or something.

No, fellow citizen, it is your job to shut the hell up, give lots of money, and vote when and for whom you’re told to. Then, in the aftermath of the fiasco, our “betters” can sit around scratching their head and wondering why their ever-faithful (“Where else they gonna go?”) base voting block either stayed home or voted third party.

Well, the Vichy Republican neo-cons are not longer scratching their heads over their staggering losses. Nope, they ain’t gonna let that horse throw them. They’re climbing right back up in the saddle to cleverly dish out big doses of the exact same crap that got them kicked in the nards before. That’s right, they’re using Juan “Amnesty” McCain’s failing formula…”Sidestep march! left-left-left!”… but essentially putting it on steroids now.

Judas John is involved big time in crafting, along with the rest of the RINO’s, a “makeover” of the GOP. Makeover, of course, meaning more of the same crap that failed so miserably before. Good plan, Juan. Here’s the Politico’s take on that, from wence comes RedState Erick Erickson’s take in the Politico.

“I’m sure John McCain has a lot of political favors he wants to return in 2010, but I don’t trust his views of who a winning candidate is anymore than I trust his ability to pick a winning campaign staff,” he said. “McCain has never really been a conservative, so I wouldn’t be surprised if he’s picking non-conservative candidates.”
Juan is jumping up to support lots of wishy-washy left-leaning neo-con RINO’s who “share his values”. One obvious example is McCain and the other RNC neo-con weenies backing slimy, limp-wristed, liberal-leaning “Windsock Charlie” Crist over real conservative Marco Rubio in the nomination for the Republican Senatorial race in Florida. Beltway buffoon Brian Walsh of the National Republican Senatorial Committee is right there with McCain. Judging from their reactions, they would gladly push Karl Marx himself as a GOP candidate as long as he was willing to put an ( R ) behind his name. From the American Spectator.

But it was clearly unnecessary for the NRSC to put its thumb on the scale in Florida in favor of Crist, a man the conservative base of the Republican Party prays is not the future of the party. Cornyn and others in the national Republican establishment have created real enmity in the conservative base of the Florida party (and elsewhere where they've supported liberal candidates over conservatives). If only the conservative base could vote, neither Cornyn nor Crist could be elected assistant county rat-catcher anywhere in Florida. To them it is just one more example of the Republican Party sticking its thumb in the eyes of conservatives. Mention either Crist or Cornyn to these folks and I hear verbs and adjectives (and the odd gerund) I've rarely encountered since I was a Sixth Fleet sailor.
It’s summed up as the winning strategy of, “Our liberals can beat your liberals.”

Not wanting to miss out, Steve Schmidt, the brilliant Rommel-like strategic genius who ran McCain’s 2008 campaign, also jumped on the Vichy bandwagon, decrying the dangers of letting actual conservatives loose in the party and, of course, tossing in some more Palin bashing for good measure while he was at it.

We could go on through a whole nationwide host of left-leaning neo-con RINO candidates Juan and the RNC boys are backing to the hilt, the same hilt that is thudding into the spines of conservatives getting stabbed in the back…again…by the GOP.

Once more, I gotta go back to the Bart Simpson and the electrified cupcake to find something close to parity with the greed, stupidity, and ability to learn of the Republicrat ruling elite these days.

Grab! Z-zap! Ow! Grab! Z-Zap! Ow! Grab! Z-Zap! Ow! Grab! Z-Zap! Ow!
