PSALM 2008-2012

Not sure where this came from, as I received it in an email.
I'll be happy to credit the writer if I find out who it is.



PSALM 2008-2012

OBAMA IS MY SHEPHERD, I SHALL NOT WANT.

HE LEADETH ME BESIDE THE STILL FACTORIES.

HE RESTORETH MY FAITH IN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.

HE GUIDETH ME IN THE PATH OF UNEMPLOYMENT.

YEA, THOUGH I WALK THRU THE VALLEY OF THE BREAD LINE, I SHALL NOT GO HUNGRY.

OBAMA HAS ANOINTED MY INCOME WITH TAXES.

MY EXPENSES RUNNETH OVER MY INCOME.

SURELY, POVERTY AND HARD LIVING WILL FOLLOW ME ALL THE DAYS OF HIS TERM.

FROM HENCE FORTH WE WILL LIVE ALL THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES IN A RENTED HOME WITH AN OVERSEAS LANDLORD.

BUT, I AM GLAD I AM AN AMERICAN, I AM GLAD THAT I AM FREE.

BUT, I WISH I WAS A DOG AND OBAMA WAS A TREE.

WHOO-HOO! 1000 Visits!

Yeah, well....I know it's *nothing* compared to the rest of my friends out here, but I figured it would take a year to hit 1000.

I'll Take "Things That Go BOOM!" for $1000 Alex...

I had a very good friend during my College years who was studying Chemistry. He got his B.S., M.S., and PhD (Summa Cum Laude, no less! VERY smart guy.) in some type of Chemistry I'd never heard of, and went on to do Great Things(tm) in some obscure field. I haven't been in touch with him since 1977 or thereabouts, so I hope he's still doing well. He's the guy that hung the "Doctor Jim" moniker on me, as I was the Go To Guy on campus if your car was ailing, or you needed some serious Electronic mischief performed most discretely.
So here's to you, Dr. Paul D. Tyma, wherever you may be.
Tip 'o the hat to Blunt Object for finding this one.
It's a hoot!

"Day by Day" Sidebar Getting Redirected?

Hmmmm....first noticed this on the days leading up to April 15th. My side window with the current "Day by Day" comic strip displays correctly, but clicking on it does NOT take you to their website.
The HTML code doesn't appear to have been changed, so all I can guess it that it's a redirect being ordered at some point.
Annoying as all HELL, so I've removed the "Day By Day" widget.
Anybody else have a similar problem??

R.I.P. Jack Weaver

A giant among handgunners has passed. I just read that Jack Weaver has departed us.
May you Rest In Peace, Jack, and thanks for teaching us all.

L.A. "South Bay" Tea Party!

I'll be there! This is the first time since College that I've gotten involved in anything political, other than being a good citizen and voting.
If you live in the area, come on out!

Modern Civil War??

I'd prefer to think of it as the Second American Revolution, but regardless of what you call it, there's an awful lot of pissed-off people out there who realize just what's going on!
Here's a link to Your Liberties discussing this:

http://www.yourliberties.us/2009/04/the-possibility-of-a-modern-civil-war-is-real/

Growing up in the 60's with the Evil Soviet Union as our arch enemy, I remember quotes from their leaders saying "We will BURY you!", and "We will hang the Capitalists with their own rope, and they will sell it to us!", and a lot of other scary things for a pre-teen kid. But I always knew "God Was On Our Side(tm)", and that FREE men would prevail. "MAD" was definitely mad, but the threat of complete, utter annihilation of both sides was enough to give both sides pause, and nobody pushed the Big Red Button.

Now we have a Godless, socialist-marxist-collectivist as "President" (just where is that pesky birth certificate, anyway? Senator McCain had to provide one. Why not The Messiah?) of our great nation, and I wonder how this ever happened.

I just hope we can all prevail during the next four years of darkness.......

"Atlas Shrugged"..... Coming Soon to a Country Near You!!

I first read this giant of a novel by Ayn Rand back in the early 70's in college. I totally enjoyed it back then, and thought it a great epic of the struggle of free men against a socialist-fascist-collectivist world.
Superb, in-depth character development, twists and turns everywhere, multiple plot lines running, and romance and intrigue sprinkled throughout. It was written in the early 50's, so some of the writing might seem strange to younger people, and there's no whiz-bang technology, but nevertheless, truly great writing, but pure fiction, right?
WRONG!
I started re-reading it a couple of weeks ago, and I'm STUNNED at how relevant it is to today's blatant power grab by the currently elected "President" and his crony-commie buddies in Congress.
I don't have the time or skill to give either a "Cliffs Notes" version, or a full review here, so I won't. It's also ELEVEN-HUNDRED PAGES LONG, so it's not light reading, but if you're a reader like me, once you get going, you won't want to put it down.
Head on over to the Wikipedia for a good background check, but be sure you read ALL the subsections, or you'll miss some subtle but important things.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlas_shrugged

And as further proof of how this novel relates to current times, check out "Directive 10-289".
http://radio.weblogs.com/0104693/stories/2002/11/17/directive10289.html

Really scary stuff, and it looks like it may come to pass.

And in reading further, I found this gem on the normally left-leaning Wikipedia:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/From_each_according_to_his_ability,_to_each_according_to_his_need

Scroll to the bottom and look at the very last entry in "See Also".
It's a hoot!

Now this is interesting.....In case you didn't go to Wikipedia before today, let me tell you the last entry of the "See Also" section was.........BARACK OBAMA!
It's not there anymore! I guess maybe the word got out about it, and they couldn't stand the light of day shining on their beloved Messiah.

"President"? NOT MINE!

Ok, I don't often go on a rant here, but this has me really steamed. I heard a replay on Mike Church this morning of "President" Obama giving his speech in England. I was stunned at the comments this moron made. This empty-headed, marxist-socialist, Godless EVIL man made comments unbefitting of the office of the President of the United States. He has no respect for the countless dead who gave their lives defending the very FREEDOM that enabled this doofus to get elected.
Yes, the United States has a very high standard of living, but guess what? We worked hard for it! We took an empty continent and built the greatest, strongest country in the world from scratch. We built railroads and factories. We built dams and power plants. We feed a good portion of the world, and we saved Europe's sorry ass TWICE this century. We built and flew the first practical aircraft, and sent men to the Moon. We researched and perfected modern pharmacology, and invented the technology that makes CT and MRI scans possible. We had the greates auto industry in the world, and while most of Europe was puttering around in 75 cubic-inch econoboxes, we had V8-powered family sedans that let us effortlessly cross the continent we tamed. Yes, times have changed, and being more energy efficient is a good thing. I'm an Engineer by trade and training, and efficiency is always good, but this "Crap-and-Trade" plan he's proposing is pure vomit. More socialism from the latest in "Dear Leaders", and it's going to doom us.
But then never having had a REAL job in his life, I guess he woundn't understand the rewards that hard work brings.
