That was a rough night. After my post about the Fed, weird, strange things began to happen. (Well, not to me personally, but I am sure that weird things did begin to happen to some people yesterday. Coincidence? You be the judge of that)
I really need to ramble today. A lot of things that are going on, but I need a free space. It’s okay if you ignore this post dear reader, verbal diarrhea of sorts for this Monday edition. Sometimes it clears my head, just to think and spew whatever comes to mind.
Great ideas form capitalists. More money for less. The recession is only beginning, south of the 49th. But, now you can get a super deal on a mattress. This is the hottest trending topic on Google right now. A Groupon for the Mattress Firm.
People are not looking up what is Obama doing, or Gaddafi. No, they are looking up this sale at mattress Firm. See, I already have given them plenty of free advertising without spending a cent at Groupon.
So who is outh there that is a gunslinger? A last gunslinger? Anyone? Is there anyone out there besuides Chuck Norris who is civilizations last bastion of hope? (Vote here)
I think the last two were Ronald Reagan and yes, JFK. Twoi separate sides of the aisle, but both, very much true gunslingers, protecting Dodge.
Who protects Dodge now? China has robbed your banks. India, your jobs. Eurpoe has robbed you of your dignity.

This is good! Like I would spend $5.00 going to America. Obama is trying to nickel and dime his own people to death with outrageous deficits andf now, wants to nickel and dime the working class from other nations as well. How about taxing people that contribute nothing, like Paris Hilton, Mr.Obama? (oh, nothing against Ms.Hilton but, you know…)
Hilton gets a $325,000.00 Lexus and I am going to have to spend 5.00 to shop across the line. What is involved with “passesnger inspection”? Am I spending five bucks on the oppurtunity to be groped by my “man bits” by an overworked, under paid Border agent? I can save the five bucks, stay at home and snuggle up to the Mrs. That sounds like a better way to spend the evening.
To the custom agents on both sides of the borders. I sympathize with you. I am sure that when you signed up to protect our borders, you never anticipated groping honest civilians that are going out for a Sunday drive across the line.
Mr. Obama. Shame on you.
Mr.Harper. Thank you for standing up to this lunacy.
I miss Reagan. I really do. maybe it is that I just miss being in my twenties during the eighties. It was a glorious time. Just as you may miss being in your twenties during the sixties or seventies. Maybe even the fifties. Good times and good music when you are twenty. You are alive, immortal, living for that one immortal day.
Reagan possessed a certain charm and led the world out from Soviet rule. Of course, under Reagan, I feared Big Brother more than I had ever done so, until Obama took control that is. Now I FEAR BIG BROTHER. But under Obama, the world has lost a little more of it’s freedom, a little more of it’s innocence. Norman Rockwell would have nothing good to paint I am afraid. Can you imagine a Norman Rockwell type of painting with a TSA guard, a little kid in the airport being “searched”? Rockwell could call it “The Grope”.
Sad times have befallen the land. Dark times. Times when we need a gunslinger.
Who is going to stand up for freedom?

Twenty five years ago the sky blazed in a fireball that we hadn’t seen before. The Challenger and her crew were lost over the coast of Florida in a shocking, heart wrenching moment of American history.
Ronald Reagan went to the airwaves, to pay tribute to these astronauts and did an outstanding job. He rose to the occassion and said that this would not be the end of the shuttle missions, but the beginning, as they were still “pioneers”. The Gipper came through for America and there were more missions into space. America prospered. Bruce Sprinstreen led the charge with his Born in the USA album. Remember those days?
Now, flash forward to today. President Obama (albeit not legally President) has returned to the Gipper himself. I was quite suprised when one of the most left wing, spend thrift Presiden’ts of all time had the unmitigated gall to turn to Reagan and mislead even more of the American public down the garden path to destruction.
Bruce Springsteen, at least had the balls to say he was not in support of Reagan using Born in the USA as a platform for Republican politics. I can respect that. But, when a man of Obama’s finger pointing stature, begins combing the history bins to make himself look good..Well, dear reader, I will leave that to you and the voting booth.
Obama needs to forge his own pathways. He needs to step up and lead America into the next round. Not compare America to other nations, nor to point blame at past administrations. Obama needs to whip his team into shape, get them excited about America again, not just their fat cat paychecks and perks on the Capitol.
America needs to heed the words of JFK and begin doing again, for the country and not for themselves. Let’s go out and win this one for the Gipper.

Seriously? Izabela Lukomska-Pyzalska is going to be involved as a director for soccer? Well, stranger things have happened in the crazy, mixed up world. Ronald Reagan became a great president, Charles Shultz died the day after retiring and someone, made a kajillion dollars off of something stupid, called the “Snuggie“.

You are the resistance. We are a part in the resistance. Naw, I am just kidding. If that was true, we would have government that works, a justice system that really meted out justice and American Idol would be off the air.
I can’t even write this with a straight face. We gave up our inalienable rights shortly after 9/11. We gave them up and China and the Islamaphobes bought them. We sold them out at rock bottom prices and now, China has come to collect.
China has paid a social visit to the Obama administration and Obama rolls out $400.00 bottles of wine and Michelle O cavorts in a tangy red dress, as if to entice Hu into forgiving America for all of her sins..ahem..debt. It is enough to make me want to write to Sean Pean and Oliver Stone and see if they cannot “righten” up this left of left government. Actually, those two would take us down an avenue that I would be terribly afraid to walk down.
There are no stripes any more in the political spectrum, save for one. Yellow.
