Look at me now, baby!

Look at me now, baby!  That’s usually a phrase someone would say when they’ve achieved something that no one thought could be done or was, at least, unlikely.  For example, I got my master’s degree.  I, for one, never thought it would happen, but it did.  I know several people who figured I’d drop out of college before getting my bachelor’s, let alone my MBA.  So, that’s where I would say “look at me now!”  However, this is a different story attached to the phrase.

Pay cuts in the wrong places

Congress….  When I think of Congress, I think of the opposite of progress.  You know, pros and cons.  So, when I see in the news that Congress decided to cut the benefits and pensions of active and retired military, I start to think to myself that those selfish people in Congress have their priorities wrong.  I used the term “people” because this is a family friendly blog… well, I try to keep it family friendly.

The meltdowns I believe are coming

There are a number of meltdowns I believe are coming to the US and to global markets.  These things fall into economic, social, and political categories.  The social and political fall pretty close together in many instances, so I’ll address those together.

American and Proud

There is a lot of tension in the nation right now.  The government is failing, they are on a partial shut down, the deadline for the debt ceiling is looming just days away, VA disability payments likely will not go out next month, federally subsidized state programs are closing, and the food stamp program went offline when Xerox had a “power outage.”

Chemical weapons in Syria was an accident?

Dale Gavlak of the AP is reporting that the chemical weapons explosion in Syria was not the work of the government, but rather was an accident caused by the rebels.  They claim the gas was provided to them by the Saudis and was intended for rebel, more specifically al Qaeda, to use against the Syrian military and/or government.  However, while transporting the weapons, the rebels set them off accidentally.  According to Dale Gavlak, most of the rebels didn’t know what they were carrying and didn’t have training on transporting chemical weapons.

Hide your guns, people!

John Kerry announced that the administration will sign the UN Arms Treaty.  great, just great.  Kerry, releasing a written statement as the U.N. treaty opened for signature Monday, said the U.S. “welcomes” the next phase for the treaty, which the U.N. General Assembly approved on April 2.

Fears realized

Have you noticed how crazy things have become lately?  It seems there are more mass shooting and other violence.  There was that guy in Texas going around stabbing people, the hostage situation in Suwanee, GA, and other assaults and crimes coming to light.  Then, there’s the political and social upheaval.

America is Hurting and We’re Giving Money to Who?

So, the “people’s president,” the “Great Obama,” the man behind the not-so-transparent curtain has added insult to the injuries of the mass of federal workers looking at furlough.  What has he done now?

Why, Mr. President? Why?

In the past we have had presidents that have done some stupid things.  The list can go on and on, but I’m not going back to 1860 here.  When I say stupid, I mean things that are politically stupid, not things like Clinton’s cigar incident.

Balls: Interesting Observation


1. The sport of choice for the urban poor is BASKETBALL.

2. The sport of choice for maintenance level employees is BOWLING.

3. The sport of choice for front-line workers is FOOTBALL.

4. The sport of choice for supervisors is BASEBALL.

5. The sport of choice for middle management is TENNIS.

And…

6. The sport of choice for corporate executives and officers is GOLF.


THE AMAZING CONCLUSION:

The higher you go in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls become.

There must be a boat load of people in Washington playing marbles.

Have you noticed the change?

On my way into work this morning, I started thinking.  I was listening to one of my favorite radio shows, Glenn Beck, and he was talking about how the liberals are taking over states.  They came out of California and invaded Colorado and look at what happened.  Now they’re moving into Texas.

Did ya see it? Did ya see Obama’s propaganda?

So, I sat down last night to watch the State of the Union speech and then Marco Rubio’s rebuttal.  I was expecting to hear the same ol’ hurrah from Obama that we always hear.  You know, his talk of how great his administration is doing on all things important.  But what I heard instead was

Molon Labe, the III%er’s battle cry

Battle cry of Sparta and today’s III%ers

There is an ancient Greek phrase Molon Labe.  Two words that say a lot more than you may think.  Pronounced moˈlon laˈve means “Come and take them”. It is a classical expression of defiance reportedly spoken by King Leonidas I in response to the Persian army’s demand that the Spartans surrender their weapons at the Battle of Thermopylae.

Is the 2nd Amendment on the ropes?

It seems that every time some moron decides to go shooting people, the loons on the left go after the guns.  That’s expected.  It always goes that way.

My argument used to be the criminals will get the guns anyway.  The only people gun control hurts are the law abiders.  However, this time the guy bought the guns legally, as well as the ammo.  Obviously, one of the many laws he broke was that he lied about his mental illness on the gun application.  So what do we do?  Do we change the laws to better control that sort of thing?
