Joke of the Week

Tip O' the Hat to Just A Conservative Girl for this week's joke. I saw it on her site, and it was just too good to resist.

The Hair Cut...

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, "I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week." The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I can not accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Congressman was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

Sacrificed on the Altar of Political Correctness

You are all going to have to pardon me, as I am not sure I will be able to keep this from descending into a shrill, incoherent morass, but I promise to put forth my best effort. On November twelfth this nation sacrificed forty-four people to the great bitch-goddess of Political Correctness. I find this to be intolerable. In what universe is this acceptable? This terrorist skid-mark in the undershorts of America made his intentions known by every method short of taking out newspaper ads or billboards, and the powers that be did nothing. Sure The Chosen One mouthed pleasantries and platitudes at the memorial service, but not once did he call this massacre what it was, TERRORISM. He urged us,"to not jump to conclusions." I am a simple southern boy, and maybe I missed the memo, but when a Jihadist screams "Allahu Akbar" and opens fire on a crowd of American soldiers, I am going to think that is an act of terrorism.

Just because Hasan was not a member of Al Quida, Hamas or Hezbollah does not make Major Hasan less of a terrorist. There was no tip-toeing through the tulips when Timothy McVeigh blew up the Murrah Federal Building. Not one politician or newsie pulled a punch when describing the Unabomber. So why do they flinch now? Because it might offend the Muslim community. Well damn the "Muslim Community" anyway. It offends me that they do not stand up to the extremists in their midst. The stand silently by and do nothing while murderers blow up building and butcher innocents because their religious leaders, THEIR LEADERS, tell them slaughter is pleasing to God. The "Muslim Community" is part of the problem rather than part of the solution.

Recently I read that the Chief of Naval Operations, Admiral Gary Roughead announced in Annapolis that "diversity is the number one priority" at the Naval Academy. Odd, I thought the number one priority of The Naval Academy should be training the future leaders of the Navy and the Marine Corps to be excellent military leaders. I was unaware that our tax dollars were going to touchy feely diversity training. The job of our military is to break the enemy's toys and to kill him, not to make recruits feel good about how "tolerant" today's military is. I am in shock at this trend, and find it deeply disturbing.

This ranks right up there with giving out a trophy to every child because they participated and not keeping score so they will feel good about themselves. Would you like to know what made me feel good about myself when I was a child? Winning the damn game. If my team lost the coach did not tell us oh well, at least you tried. NO! he worked us harder in practice until we won the damn games. As Admiral Jones Ingram said, "We've got no place in this outfit for good losers. We want tough hombres who will go in there and win!"

I have seen very little on the part political correctness played in these murders. though there is some. If the powers that be had not been afraid to to offend a few people, maybe step on some toes, then this disaster would never have happened. How did this happening to my country? How have we fallen so low? When did it become more important to make sure a terrorist feels good about the consequences of his actions than to protect American Citizens? If this is where the road headed down, do we even deserve to survive?

Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory.

American Patriot/Hero of the Week

This week RWE celebrates Thomas Jefferson. With the current climate in American Politics today, I feel that the lessons we can learn from one of our greatest Founding Fathers to be particularly apropo. Besides being our third President and Renaissance Man, Jefferson was a paragon of the values this great country was founded upon. Republicanism stresses liberty and rights as central values, makes the people as a whole sovereign, rejects inherited political power, expects citizens to be independent in their performance of civic duties, and is strongly inclined against corruption. Jefferson was an independent man who exhorted other to follow in his footsteps. He foresaw the despotism of activist judges so common today and warned against it.

Jefferson railed against tyranny in all forms, and encouraged others to do so as well. In a letter to William S. Smith he wrote, "And what country can preserve its liberties, if the rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms." Jefferson was a believer in one's right to protect one's self, family and property. He defended the right to bear arms on an individual basis when he wrote, "Laws that forbid the carrying of arms ... disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes ... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."

Jefferson played a pivotal role in winning this country's freedom. He warned future generations against the tyranny that could so easily engulf our fledgling nation then and in the future when he wrote , again to William S. Smith, "The tree of liberty must from time to time be refreshed with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Jefferson reminds us that our government rules at the sufferance of the people. Jefferson's principle that the government rules with, and by, the consent of the governed is most evident in the Preamble of the Declaration of Independence. [G]overnments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government shall become destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, & to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles & organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety & happiness." This is a lesson that today's leaders would be wise to remember.

Jefferson was not a perfect man. Like all heroes and patriots mentioned her,e he was merely mortal. There is great evidence that her fathered several children with one of his slaves. For all that he tried to free the slaves in the Deceleration of Independence, and wrote papers against the practice, he too was a slave owner. This should not however, detract from the greatness of a great man. I would be terribly interested to hear what he has to say about the current situation our great nation finds itself in.

Joke of the Week

Tip o' the hat, once again, to my dad. Enjoy the laugh.

The Chosen One was invited to address a major gathering of the American Indian Nation in upstate New York .

He spoke for almost an hour about his plans for increasing every Native American’s present standard of living. He referred to his time as a U.S. Senator and how he had voted for every Native American issue that came to the floor of the Senate.

Although The President was vague about the details of his plans, he seemed most enthusiastic and spoke eloquently about his ideas for helping his “red sisters and brothers.”

At the conclusion of his speech, the Tribes presented The Chosen One with a plaque inscribed with his new Indian name, “Walking Eagle.” The proud President then departed in his motorcade to a fundraiser, waving to the crowds.

A news reporter later asked the group of chiefs how they came to select the new name they had given to the President.

They explained that “Walking Eagle” is the name given to a bird so full of shit it can no longer fly.

Am I Just too Sensitive?

Just now I saw the above commercial for I suggest you watch it, if you can stomach it. For those who can not, allow me to describe it for you. An old man is packing a bag, in walks a younger man, his son I assume, and asks if the old man is going on a trip. The old man says he is returning to where it all began, and from the army picture on the wall, his age and the description of a combat beach landing, I assume this to be a D-Day reunion. The entire time the old man is talking, an old fashioned arrival/departure board is showing travel options. As the old vet reaches the climax of his speech, Cancun comes up on the board, and the son smiles. They are trying for a double entendre, and humor, but I find nothing funny about two hundred nine thousand allied deaths, especially when they are making light of such a massacre for profit. There is now way in hell that I will ever book anything with If I wanted to visit my family in Texas, and Kayak was the last travel agency on the planet, I would walk over hot coals for two thousand miles, rather than book a flight with these skid-marks. If they think that veterans are some joke, especially the greatest of us all, or not worthy of our attention and respect, than I REFUSE to give them my business. I will be boycotting them, and if it remains a boycott of one forever, than I am good with that. Commercials are meant to influence our purchasing decisions, and I must say this travesty of a commercial has certainly helped make up my mind, though I am sure not in the way they planned. Perhaps I am just too sensitive. I admit I have a dog in this fight and might not be objective, but somehow I doubt it. Tell me what you think about this commercial. All opinions welcome.

An anonymous reader posted a "Contact Us" link for so that I could gripe directly to the company that had ticked me off. I sent the following rant:

Due to your advertisement making fun of veterans, I will NEVER book anything with your company. Your sense of humor is deplorable. I have encouraged others to likewise boycott your company. I hope to soon see your company declaring bankruptcy.

I have to give Kayak props though, the CMO responded less than twelve hours later with this:

Dear Sir,

I just read your e-mail, and I'm very sorry that our ad offended you. We definitely meant no disrespect. I have the utmost respect and gratitude for our veterans and the sacrifices they've made for us. I know what they did for us. I personally have many family members who have served or are currently serving including my father. One of our co-founders father's served in WWII as did the main actor's father. The ad is intended to convey that the character is poking fun at himself. We've also received positive feedback including from current service members and veterans though I'm not discounting your sentiments at all. Again, I sincerely apologize, and we certainly did not mean to offend you.

Respectfully, Robert

I leave it for you to decide what they meant, but as for me, I stand by my original sentiments.

-----UPDATE 2.0-----
Today (12/7/09) I sent another email to Mr. Birge, thanking him for his quick response, and to let him know that his defense of the ad was posted. That pesky sense of fairness. Within two hours, he had responded to that email as well. For all that they have offended my sensibilities, I have got to give them credit, they read the gripes and are not afraid to respond. Here is what I wrote:

Mr. Birge,

I do appreciate your quick reply to my gripe. I have not changed my opinion on the humor of your commercial, though I do believe it more a case of poor taste (my opinion) rather than maliciousness. I understand, and have even seen, that there is positive feedback on this commercial. I try to keep a good sense of humor about most topics, and often laugh at my own absurdity, and even usually see the humor when my beliefs are lampooned. However, there is a growing trend to make our veterans, of which I am one, a target of ridicule and other humor that is in poor taste. It generally takes much to offend me, but this trend, and it's effects, do the job effectively. I urge you to take a close look at the content of future advertisements, as I am not the only one that found this particular ad disrespectful. If you were to continue to advertise with similar content, even tongue-in-cheek and innocently, it would definitely inflame many of a similar mindset to myself. While I still am not happy about the ad, I do however have a sense of fairness, and as such, posted your letter explaining the ad as an addendum to my original blog post. Once again, I thank you for your response, as well as the rapidity in responding. This shows a dedication to customer service that is severely lacking from most companies in this day and age.

Thank You,
Right Wing Extreme

His reply:

Dear Sir,

I appreciate your note back. Veteran's are one group that I would never intentionally ridicule, and I'm not a sensitive type. We truly did mean things in a different way, and I definitely didn't take your e-mail as a gripe.

With respect.


Props for the quick response, but I have to disagree, even I would call my original email to Kayak a gripe.

American Patriot/Hero of the Week

I delayed Patriots and Heroes to brag on catching my criminal, but now back to business. This week's hero is a Marine, but I will not hold that against him. Sergeant Jeremiah Workman was born on August 26, 1983 in Marion Ohio. Sgt. Workman enlisted in The Corps prior to graduating high school, and became a mortarman. Workman fought in The Second Battle of Fallujah (Operation Phantom Fury), where his battery bombarded many an insurgent. After the battle, Sgt. Workman's platoon patrolled the streets as part of the security force subduing the city. During a patrol, a squad commanded by his friend, Sgt. Jarrett Kraft, was ambushed by insurgents. Sgt. Workman performed many acts of bravery during this encounter, and the citation for his Navy Cross can be found here. These actions make the Sergeant both Hero and Patriot in my view, but there is more to his story.

Sgt. Workman has somewhat of an "aww shucks" attitude about his brave actions that day, something that is much more common in television and movies than in real life. Sgt. Workman openly admits to being frightened, having to will himself into combat, PTSD, shedding tears, depression and the weakness of using alcohol to deal with his problems. All of these things violate the cult of manhood in general, and the attitude that the general public expects of a United States Marine in particular. His openness about these issues raises him immeasurably in my esteem, as it should in yours. Sergeant Workman shines the light on PTSD, drags it out into the light and strangles it with both hands. He aides others in their efforts to deal with this often debilitating disorder, and is brave enough to be candid about his own struggles with this disorder and the effects it has had on his family. Many featured in "American Patriot/Hero of the Week" are good, brave men, but I can not think of anyone else I have featured quite as brave as Sgt. Workman.

It is often far easier to be brave under fire, when all you have to do is look out for yourself and your mates, and all you risk is death. A more difficult task, is to openly, and publicly, face your demons when you do not have to, and risk stigmatization and humiliation which is often worse than death. This is especially true for men. We are expected to be brave and to deal with the worst life can throw out with noting more than a witty quip, and this holds doubly true for one as "tough" as we expect a Marine to be. Sgt. Workman rejects this image that society has forced upon his brothers, and tells the sufferers of this most "unmanly" of disorders to get help. In his recent book "Shadow of the Sword" Sgt. workman exhorts us all, "We need to reframe the debate, change the perception of PTSD in the country at large, and find ways to show the real consequences of combat in Hollywood epics. Until that happens, there will be plenty of good men and women who live in despair, unwilling to reach out and admit they can't battle this demon on their own. The stereotype and the stigma associated with PTSD must be destroyed. There are lives at stake."

RWE Practices the Second Amendment

I have been very busy slaving away in the salt mines, banging out tests on an eCommerce website. This entails something I am not used to anymore, working weekends. Yeah, yeah, I can hear all your hearts breaking out there in the bloggosphere. I woke up and went about my morning routine. At twenty until eight, coffee in hand, I kissed the wife, and headed out the door. I went down the stairs and headed to my car, which was parked in the parking lot across the street. It was then that I noticed that there was someone sitting in my car. I am now thinking, "No Way!" I am in such a state of shock, that I have to double check that, a, this is actually my car, and b, that there was some dude I did not know sitting there, in MY car.

I put my bag and coffee down on the trunk of my wife's car ,which was parked in the driveway, and went back inside the house. I decided to offer this impromptu socialist, intent on redistributing some of my wealth, a bit of the "New America" that Dear Leader has promised us all. I grabbed the phone, dialed 911, retrieved my security system and jacked a shell into the chamber. I returned to my car "Hoping" to catch this guy and "Change" him into a corpse.

I surprised this dip-shit, jammed my shotgun under his nose and yelled, "What's up meth-head!" Still on the phone, the dispatcher is rather concerned at this point, and I can hear her yelling for me to talk to her. This douche then moves a bit and I yell a warning to not move and cast an aspersion on his possible fornication with his mother. At some point the guy just takes off running. I yell for him to stop, then to come back and finally not to make me chase him. He, of course, keeps running. I decide that the local district attorney might be just contrary enough to decide it was murder if I popped a shot into the guy's back, you never can tell with district attorneys.

So I quickly switch 911 over to the cell phone, and take off after my new bestest friend. I feel it necessary at this point to tell you that from the police station, I live sixty yards as the crow flies, or three hundred yards as the perp runs. The police busted this idiot just as he rounded the corner, and dispatch told me that they were requesting my presence. I arrive on the scene, and find out from the officer that this person had spent the night in my car because he was too drunk to make it home, and it was too cold to pass out just anywhere. The officer asked me if anything was missing from my car, like my stereo. I told the cop that is my friend had taken my stereo, then the joke was definitely on him. In the interest of fairness I must now describe my car to you. I drive a '93 Buick Regal Custom that has definitely seen better days. It has a factory stereo of 4"x4" in dash variety, and the volume knob does not even work. The rest of the car is much the same as I use it only to commute back and forth from work and getting around town.

The officers start to put this guy in their car and I tell him to enjoy jail and possibly compared him to a rectal opening. One of the officers tells me that this was not necessary to which I reply, "I disagree, but alright." The cop and myself go through the vehicle to catalog the damage. This guy smoked meth in my car, making it smell, stole approximately $1.50 in loose change and broke my cup holder. Honestly some people have no respect for their homes. At this point the cop starts to take his leave, and wishes me to have a better day. Being from the south, and rather worked up, I respond in my Texan drawl, which resurfaces at time such as these, "Hell officer, I done caught me a criminal, it don't get to be a much better day than that." The officer looks at me a little disbelievingly and says, "WOW! Alright then."

I have to admit that this was a particularly fine day because of these events, but my wife is still somewhat mortified that I was out in the street, "waving my shotgun around" and screaming curses at the top of my lungs while my extremely leftist neighbors were out on their porch enjoying their morning coffee. I do not know what she is so worked up over, after all I am not the one breaking into cars. I have also failed to mention, that this guy was so frightened, that he pissed his pants, literally, sometime during these proceedings. I seriously doubt, due to the level of sheer terror that this guy felt, caused by an angry, screaming, cursing, gun wielding red-neck, that he will be returning to my street any time soon. I also fervently hope that this experience will teach him to be more careful about his choice in temporary domiciles in the future.

All-in-all, I am very proud of this guys capture, and my small part therein. It really brightened an otherwise crap day. I offer this advice to my friend, and others of his ilk, beware which car you break into, if you can see my house, you are within range. I have included this guys name and mug-shot so graciously provided by the county jail roster.

Macario I.
Arrested for:
Criminal Mischief II
Criminal Trespass II

Here is a study in the different between a victim and a predator mentality. After hearing about my Sunday fun, two ladies I work with asked me a question. In all seriousness they asked me why I had to confront my intruder with a shotgun. Not getting what they really meant I answered equally serious, "Because the pistols were too far away, and the .22 is too small and ineffective." Neither of us understood the others statement, but at least my answer will get me home at the end of the day instead of in a bag at the morgue.

Joke of the Week

Tip o' the hat to Doug H.
Cock of the Walk
The Prize Rooster

John was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young layers (hens), called pullets,' and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.

He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced. This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.

John's favorite rooster, Hussein, was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed Hussein's bell hadn't rung at all! When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, could run for cover. To John's amazement, Hussein had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one. John was so proud of Hussein, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.

The result was the judges not only awarded Hussein the No Bell Piece Prize but they also awarded him the Pulletsurprise as well. Clearly Hussein was a politician in the making.

Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention. Vote carefully, the bells are not always audible.

Veterans Day '09

Today RWE honors all of those who put their own precious selves between their beloved home and wars desolation. They fight, and die, to preserve your freedom. If you see a vet today, shake their hand and tell them, "Thank You." You might buy them a beer too, soldiers like beer. Happy Veterans Day!!!

Justice is Served

I know that Tuesday is not usually a "News Day" at RWE. However, this little tidbit was just too important. Today at 9:11 pm eastern, John Allen Muhammad, a.k.a. "The Beltway Sniper," was put down like the terrorist dog he was. I have two regrets. First, that they did not catch this jihadi murderer sooner. Second, his little boy-toy Lee Boyd Malvo will not get the same treatment, "because he was a minor." It is a pity he was not tried in Texas, they can get a 5 year old tried as an adult. Burn in hell Mr. Muhammad.

American Patriot/Hero of the Week

This weeks hero is a no-brainer. This week RWE Hero of the Week is Sergeant Kimberly Munley. As the whole nation should know, Sgt. Munley is the hero of the Fort Hood Massacre. At great risk to her own life, she shot the Muslim terrorist douche-bag, who killed thirteen and wounded more than thirty, and was herself wounded three times. She is a true hero who risked it all to save our finest. Get well soon Sergeant.

Joke of the Week 3.0

Tip o' the hat to Doug H. for this weeks bonus joke.

Liberals vs Conservatives

If a conservative doesn't like guns, he doesn`t buy one. If a liberal doesn't like guns, he wants all guns outlawed.

If a conservative is a vegetarian, he doesn't eat meat. If a liberal is a vegetarian, he wants all meat products banned for everyone.

If a conservative sees a foreign threat, he thinks about how to defeat his enemy. A liberal wonders how to surrender gracefully and still look good.

If a conservative is homosexual, he quietly leads his life. If a liberal is homosexual, he demands legislated respect.

If a black man or Hispanic are conservative, they see themselves as independently successful. Their liberal counterparts see themselves as victims in need of government protection.

If a conservative is down-and-out, he thinks about how to better his situation. A liberal wonders who is going to take care of him.

If a conservative doesn't like a talk show host, he switches channels. Liberals demand that those they don't like be shut down.

If a conservative is a non-believer, he doesn't go to church. A liberal non-believer wants any mention of God and religion silenced. (Unless it's a foreign religion, of course!)

If a conservative decides he needs health care, he goes about shopping for it, or may choose a job that provides it. A liberal demands that the rest of us pay for his.

If a conservative slips and falls in a store, he gets up, laughs and is embarrassed. If a liberal slips and falls, he grabs his neck, moans like he's in labor and then sues.

If a conservative reads this, he'll forward it so his friends can have a good laugh. A liberal will demand I delete it because he's "offended".

Joke of the Week 2.0

I saw this on Z's blog and I could not help myself:


A Harley biker is riding by the zoo in Washington , DC when he sees a little girl leaning into the lion's cage. Suddenly, the lion grabs her by the cuff of her jacket and tries to pull her inside to slaughter her, under the eyes of her screaming parents. The biker jumps off his Harley, runs to the cage and hits the lion square on the nose with a powerful punch. Whimpering from the pain the lion jumps back letting go of the girl, and the biker brings her to her terrified parents, who thank him endlessly.

A reporter has watched the whole event. The reporter addressing the Harley rider says, 'Sir, this was the most gallant and brave thing I've seen a man do in my whole life." The Harley rider replies, 'Why, it was nothing, really, the lion was behind bars. I just saw this little kid in danger and acted as I felt right.'

The reporter says, 'Well, I'll make sure this won't go unnoticed. I'm a journalist, you know, and tomorrow's paper will have this story on the front page . . . . . . . So, what do you do for a living and what political affiliation do you have?' The biker replies, 'I'm a U.S. Marine and a Republican.' The journalist leaves.

The following morning the biker buys the paper to see if it indeed brings news of his actions, and reads, on the front page:


Joke of the Week

Tip o' the hat to my mom for this week's joke. Even thought she is kind of falling away from true conservative principles, she is still one of us, and has a great sense of humor.

Joe the plumber and his interpretation of Democratic “spreading the wealth:”
The Chosen One discovers a leak under his sink, so he calls Joe the Plumber to come and fix it.

Joe drives to The Chosen One’s house, which is located in a very nice neighborhood and where its clear that all the residents make more than $250,000 per year.

Joe arrives and takes his tools into the house. Joe is led to the room that contains the leaky pipe under a sink. Joe assesses the problem and tells The Chosen One , who is standing near the door, that its an easy repair that will
take less than 10 minutes.

The Chosen One asks Joe how much it will cost. Joe immediately says, “$9,500.”

“$9,500?” The Chosen One asks, stunned. “But you said it”s an easy repair!”
=2 0
“Yes, but what I do is charge a lot more to my clients who make more than $250,000 per year so I can fix the plumbing of everybody who makes less than that for free,” explains Joe. “Its always been my philosophy. As a matter of fact, I lobbied government to pass this philosophy as law, and it did pass earlier this year, so now all plumbers have to do business this way. It’s known as “Joe’s Fair Plumbing Act of 2008.” Surprised you haven’t heard of it, senator.”

In spite of that, The Chosen One tells Joe there’s no way he’s paying that much for a small plumbing repair, so Joe leaves.

The Chosen One spends the next hour flipping through the phone book looking for another plumber, but he finds that all other plumbing businesses listed have gone out of business. Not wanting to pay Joe’s price, The Chosen One does nothing.

The leak under The Chosen One’s sink goes un-repaired for the next several days.

A week later, the leak is so bad that The Chosen One has had to put a bucket under the sink. The bucket fills up quickly and has to be emptied every hour, and there’s a risk that the room will flood, so The Chosen One calls Joe and pleads with him to return.

Joe goes back to The Chosen One’s house, looks at the leaky pipe, and says “Let’s see this will cost you about $21,000.”

“A few days ago you told me it would cost $9,500!” The Chosen One quickly fires back.

Joe explains the reason for the dramatic increase. “Well, because of the “Joe’s Fair Plumbing Act,” a lot of rich people are learning how to fix their own plumbing, so there are fewer of you paying for all the free plumbing I’m doing for the people who make less than $250,000. As a result, the rate I have to charge my wealthy paying customers rises every day.

“Not only that, but for some reason the demand for plumbing work from the group of people who get it for free has skyrocketed, and there’s a long waiting list of those who need repairs. This has put a lot of my fellow plumbers out of business, and nobody is going into the plumbing business because they know they won’t make any money. I’m hurting now too all thanks to greedy rich people like you who won’t pay their fair share.”

The Chosen One tries to straighten out the plumber: “Of course you’re hurting, Joe! Don’t you get it? If all the rich people learn how to fix their own plumbing and you refuse to charge the poorer people for your services, you’ll be broke, and then what will you do?”

Joe immediately replies, “Run for president, apparently.”

Thoughts on CommieCare

Piglosi, Dingy Harry and The Chosen One have really started to turn up the heat on CommieCare this week. I have to admit that I am damned tired of the whole CommieCare fight, but this fight is to important to give in to battle fatigue now. This den of thieves is trying to pull a fast one on all of us. They say that they are doing this for the betterment of the nation. THEY LIE! It is about suborning honest Americans and bringing them, and a large portion of the nation economy, under government control. The want to force us face first into the government Justify Fulltrough. The leftists have learned that the more people who depend on the government for an essential service, the more leverage they will have as the party that is always willing to dole out the hand-outs. It all comes down to control. Like the tax code, they will use this as another political tool to play politics with.

I don't expect much from the leftist Kool-Aid drinking proles, of course these drones want the government to do for them, and keep those in power that promise them a bigger hand-out. Look at Social Security, welfare, Medicare and Medicaid. The recipients of government charity always vote for the group that promises a bigger slice of the pie. Robert Heinlein said it best, "What is supposed to happen in a democracy is that each sovereign citizen will always vote in the public interest for the safety and welfare of all. But what does happen is that he votes his own self-interest as he sees it… which for the majority translates as "Bread and Circuses." "Bread and Circuses" is the cancer of democracy, the fatal disease for which there is no cure. Democracy often works beautifully at first. But once a state extends the franchise to every warm body, be he producer or parasite, that day marks the beginning of the end of the state. For when the plebs discover that they can vote themselves bread and circuses without limit and that the productive members of the body politic cannot stop them, they will do so, until the state bleeds to death, or in its weakened condition the state succumbs to an invader—the barbarians enter Rome.

Brothers and sisters, it is worse than even Heinlein predicted. The barbarians are not beating on the gates. No, they have already infiltrated the shining city on the hill, and are bringing us down from the inside. They are suborning our culture and destroying our way of life. They hate America, and feel that the prosperity we have earned is somehow stolen, or was taken at the expense of others, and that it just is not fair. The enemies of freedom have penetrated our system all the way to the top. The have used the processes of this great republic to gather up the reins of power. Having achieved that goal they are now bent on dismantling our system. The first step was to get as many on the dole as possible, thus making the dependent. Next they infiltrated the main stream media and turned them to their will. Then the started to take apart our financial institutions and private industries, such as the auto companies, and placing them under government control. Now they are attempting to tax the air we breath and force us into government run health care.

As I have said before, do you really want the idiots who let Wall Street fall, White Water and any number of other shenanigans happen in charge of your health? The idea frightens me. Look at Canada and how well their system has served them. Look to England's National Health System. I do not want English Teeth, do you? They say that he bill will not have death panels, by whatever name, or allow illegals to continue to soak up our hard earned tax dollars. I say again, THEY LIE! The violate our Constitution and smile while they say it is for our own good.

We will not have to worry about the barbarians battering down the gates, our so called leaders are inviting them in. We must continue to fight, to keep the pressure on these bastards. Write your congress members. Brothers and sisters, pass this message on. Send it in e-mails, post links and send it to your friends. Re-post this on your blogs, and forward it to the talk show hosts, you have my permission. The wider distribution on this message, the better for a free America. We beat back amnesty by stirring the masses to respond to congress and their disregard for our laws in one voice, "NO!" We won that fight, and we can win this fight too. Below is a picture of people waiting for the swine flu shots, another failed government health care program. If you want to see the future of CommieCare, there it is brothers and sisters.

Week of Death

It has been a bad week. First I found out that a student and friend died of pneumonia secondary to swine flu. Then there was the Ft. Hood shooting in my home state. Today it was the Florida shooting, and to top it off, my sister's heart's son took his own life. For all of these, I fly the RWE flag at half mast. May the good lord take you all in his arms.

FT. Hood Terriorist Shooter Makes it out Alive.....For Now


Unless you spent the day under a rock, you heard about the shooting spree at Fort Hood. Pictured above is Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a U.S. Army head shrinker. This piece of garbage entered a soldier readiness center being used for a college graduation ceremony, and opened up with two handguns, killing thirteen and wounding more than thirty others. Some are saying that this is not a terrorist act, but instead a law enforcement issue. To them I say, there is a cure for cranial rectal insertion, I suggest you try drinking one cup of chlorine bleach every hour until symptoms desist.

The Feds have been watching this guy for six months because of Internet posting discussing suicide bombs and other threats. Of course a senior administration official told NBC News, "[T]he shootings could have been a criminal matter rather than a terrorism-related attack and that there was no intelligence to suggest a plot against Fort Hood." Well it COULD have been a nice, harmless, Muslim gentleman who just happened to bring a rifle into a building crawling with infidels and it just went off on its own right after he screamed "Allahu Akbar". For those of you who don't know, Allahu Akbar means God is great, and is shouted by terrorists before they commit their murder of the infidel. Of course The Chosen One's lackeys deny a terrorist link despite the evidence. Those douche-bags do not believe in terrorists. They think that terrorists are figments of the imagination dreamed up by conservatives to keep the proles in line. To them this guy was no more a terrorist than Sergeant Asan Akbar who blew up his fellow soldiers with hand grenades while they slept because they were mean to him. In a diary entry Akbar said, "I may not have killed any Muslims, but being in the Army is the same thing. I may have to make a choice very soon on who to kill." No, obviously he was not a terrorist either. In an overwhelming outpouring of support, The Chosen One called the incident, "horrific". Another pithy comment Mr. President, did your speech writers work all day on that one, or did Biden write it for you?

Of course Muslim groups are silent except to worry about backlash. Do you know why you have to worry about backlash? It is because you never do anything to solve the problem. You are never part of the solution. All you do is preach hate and other vileness on the one hand, and either make excuses why it is the infidel's fault or appeal for calm on the other hand. You are part of the problem, and you like it that way, otherwise you would do something rather than wring your hands mouthing platitudes. In fact the NY Times is already attempting to make Maj. Hasan the victim. Read the article, of course he was the victim. He would never have shot all those innocent people if the had not been so mean to him and tried to deploy him to the middle east to kill his terrorist brothers. This shows, once again, that the leftist hate the military, and could not care less if they are gunned down like dogs.

I have to say, that the real pity is that the original reports of this waste of space's death were greatly exaggerated. Now we have to go through the trouble and expense of giving this terrorist asshole a trial. Of course, I urge you all to look at the bright side, the military has the death penalty, and until they give him the juice he will be locked in a military prison mostly filled with trained killers, that despite being criminals, are also patriotic. One way or the other, adios skid-mark.

Posts will be Delayed for a Time

My posts are going to be delayed for a short time. Recently, a friend and sometime employee passed from pneumonia caused by the swine flu, and I am just not feeling it right now. Keep the faith and keep the pressure on.
