  1. Right of the People says:

    I just read an article on Yahoo about Fisker laying off 75% of their workforce. It’s possible they could file bankruptcy and the US taxpayers will be out another $500 million.

    I mean what a concept, a $97,000.00 electric car, just more money wasted on “green” technology. I’d love to see Barry the Bozo take a permanent vacation.

    • Rusty Shackleford says:

      One still has to understand that the “green” concept is one that true believers of national socialism is fool’s errand. Their agenda has nothing to do with green anything but is and effective way of draining the money supply.

      I am cynical and I trust few. What I do tend to understand is that people will serve themselves first, last and always, given the right circumstances. Someone told me that when a conservative gives to charity, they do so anonymously, as it should be. For, the conservative is not looking for accolades or praise or any sort of recognition. In fact, the true conservative detests the very attention that national socialists crave.

      When a national socialist gives to charity, which is extremely rarely, they must have the event trumpeted for all to hear. After all, the mediots wasted no time getting the word out that captain airball is “giving up” 5% of his salary and that Kerry is “donating” 5% of his to charity.

      If you do it…just do it. Keep it quiet….drawing attention to yourself for such things is of the seven deadly sins and the mark of an incomplete human-being. Pride is loud, obnoxious and rude. Nobleness is quiet, dignified and resolute.

      I admit that I fail often enough at the seven sins…but work hard to avoid it. I am also aware of my failings and how and when I do. I say this only because I see national socialists in the spotlight who have no claim to character, who mercilessly abuse conservatives and repeatedly nudge each other the way petulant teens do when they think they’ve gotten the better of someone.

      Well, someday….maybe soon, maybe later, such fools have to face the music. Music they composed and performed. And they won’t like the tune so much then. It’s been proven throughout history that the people will put up with just so much.

      The American Revolution
      The French Revolution
      WW II
      The dissolution of the USSR

      But the mystery is, and always will be, that strange section of the human mind that prefers the government takes care of them instead of them taking care of themselves. Another deadly sin: Sloth. Laziness. And though the national socialists will make great fun of the Christian implications, one cannot deny the practical application to it, that being that when the government provides for the slothful, the slothful multiply. Then, when they become a majority, the amount that can be given out decreases. Eventually, as Margaret Thatcher said, “You run out of other peoples’ money.”

      And so much more.

      Rome tried it all 2,000 years ago. They taxed everybody into poverty. They spent lavishly on programs “for the people” to get their votes. That is, the votes that mattered because there was only a select portion of the population that could vote.

      1/3 of Rome proper was slaves. I submit that today the same is true of the United States. With 90 million people on some sort of government fundage, a population of 313 million, the numbers about match. But the difference is, the people on welfare slavery don’t provide any toil. No work, no goods, no services. Rome couldn’t afford it (among other things) when they did get something out of them because feeding them alone was too costly.

      Rush said it today, “We are living in a dying country”. The transformation, so desperately wanted by the national socialists will be something even they won’t recognize because of their all-too-great inability to anticipate unintended consequences. Just like the junky who, years ago, said, “I’ll just take one hit…it’ll make me feel better”…and then ends up horizontal in a refrigerated locker is the nation’s fate if we cannot kick the habit of tax and spend liberals.

      But now it’s even worse because we have, not only a power-struggle amongst the people of the US, conservatives vs liberals, but there’s a power-struggle in both parties. The national socialists are more unified though and tend to pull the country to the dystopian socialist dream while the republikans want so badly to be liked and be invited to the cool kids’ pool parties. They STILL haven’t figured out that no matter what they do, the press, the national socialists and the ignorant, drooling mouth-breathers in America are gonna hate them.

      Better to be hated for what you ARE rather than for what you think they want you to be.

      Add to that the very notion that being confrontational is somehow repugnant to conservatives. No, it’s not. Not when you’re on the side of right. The claims that’s the case and uses their vile and violent rhetoric to shut up conservatives. How is it that such people whose ideas suck so bad get so much play-time?

      Like millions of other Americans, I shake my head because the guy next to me on his cellphone and the woman over there in the walmart are probably so wrapped up in how to feel good about themselves that politics doesn’t matter to them and they have a “whatever” attitude which is what got them through high-school and maybe college…and how they “get along” at work.

      I’ve met so many of them over the years it has actually caused me to lose interest in meeting anyone new. They are so uninteresting and the things they talk about are so pedestrian that I want to leave the moment they start talking.

      So here we are….the national socialists have won on many fronts. By dumbing down the education curriculum, by commandeering the media and by the constant message that “conservativism is bad”. I’m officially an old fuddy-duddy because like Clint said in “Gran Tornino”, “Get off my lawn”.

      When people start praising the idiot-in-chief…I get up and walk away. I only hope that I’ll be able to carve out for myself a niche where I can avoid having to be politically correct or tolerate the incredibly vast numbers of STUPID people in this once great nation.

      I feel it every time the national socialists enjoy sticking their knives into the sides of America and then grinning as they turn the blade and laugh as the blood pours freely from the wound. Then I cry as they lament, “Look what you made me do….”

      Like the child who killed his parents and then cried because he was an orphan.

    “…..lose interest in meeting anyone new.” –That really strikes a chord.

    Anyone who voted for Obama, despite being a 20 year member of a bigoted church, tells me all I need to know about that person. I hear them talking, just walk the other way as fast as I can. Don’t waste your sanity on that garbage.

    Any liberal I meet is so routine, robotic, angry, snotty, I can mouth along in unison to every argument and counter-argument they make.

    Government workers. Lazy, stupid, arrogant know-it-alls. They don’t see you as a human being unless you have some bureaucratic title they can respect. Chief, Deputy, Secretary, Assistant, Director, Supervisor, Manager, Officer, Associate, Under-Secretary, Administrator, General Counsel, Inspector, Deputy Assistant Under-Secretary Counsel of the Director of__________. . . .

    Sports fans. About the shallowest people you will ever meet. They know height, weight, speed, of every 22 year old millionaire, spout win/loss records for every year, but when it comes to after the game, you know what they talk about? THE GAME!
    I know quite a few college football backers, and they go to the autograph sessions to get 18-20 year old’s signatures and ask questions! My G*d lady! You are 53 years old, and this is your hobby? Season tickets, get drunk before the game, wear head-to-toe team colors, and are so jubilant or deeply depressed after the game, you would swear they were two different people depending on the outcome.

    Sorority/Fraternity people. Hopeless/brainless trash, whenever I have the unpleasant opportunity to talk/meet one of these people.

    Radical Republicans. –yes, despite the common interests I actually DON’T want to talk about Obama every waking moment of the day, or have every conversation redirected to how the government is to blame for this or that. It’s depressing.

    A nation of people who know Bo Jackson’s 40 yard dash time, but can’t name the 3 branches of government, who can name all the Ninja Turtles but not the Renaissance artists, who can’t tell you the top 3 causes of the Civil War, who know who Michael Jackson’s 3 children are, and can’t name 1 signer of the Constitution, who know exactly when the next i-phone is coming out, but can’t even find i-raq on a map, who can repeat every line of a Monty Python skit, but can’t repeat the preamble of the Declaration of Independence, who wait in line at Wal*Mart for 15 hours in the cold to get plastic CRAP-when they could have gotten it better and cheaper online in their warm home. The people who say we can’t judge right or wrong, are the same people on the JURY! OMG……
    This country is circling the bowl, no doubt about it.

    ★The people that I can actually find some solace with are country folks who are successful farmers or small businessmen. They seem detached enough from politics, are smart enough to be independent, and are just interested in having a good time whenever the opportunity arises.
    A day drinking and inner-tubing on the river, swinging from trees into the water, topped-off with a bon-fire made from old tires, and goading drunk ‘ol Cletus into jumping over it, may sound pretty Hillbilly to a lot of people, but it’s actually a darn fun time.

    “Ok, hold my beer and watch this!” –Cletus (1948-2012)

    MYTH: Obama Good at Sports. Another category in which his ability is fraudulent.

    Obama vs. Bush Opening Pitch: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GcSIwBWiPoU

    The media dutifully noted that the “boos” were because he was wearing a White Sox cap that no one in the stands could have seen clearly from where they were sitting. Notice him putting on the cap, and .07 seconds later pretending to react to the boos as if people had that much time to react to this side-show.

    Obama Throws Baseball Like a Girl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pZ-vdsHStuw

    The ball didn’t even reach home plate.

    Charles Barkley on Obama: “He’s a lefty. He always goes left. And if you just stand there, I’m not sure if you were to open up the right side, he could go right at all.” http://www.politico.com/click/stories/1012/barkley_knocks_obamas_game_.html

    Which is a polite way of saying he has NO SKILL at all. Anyone who has played b-ball knows just to over-play the hand that is favored and the player is easily shut down.

    Brickhouse Blues: Obama Makes 2 of 22 Shots:

    If you look at his hands, he is not even FOLLOWING THROUGH on his shots. He’s hopping, not using his legs for jumping. He also has no idea how to line up the ball and hands to his face. His supporting hand is in the wrong spot. He makes a lay-up with the worst form possible, no english spin on the ball. –Terrible.

    Obama on His Bowling Skills: “It’s like Special Olympics or something…” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_E-EdGul8nI

    Ok, so no ability to aim. Take bowling off the list.

    Obama Sucks on Driving Range, 1:34: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HG1Tm98-FLo

    His form is so awful, it’s difficult to know where to start. Perhaps the body-hop before he makes contact with the ball.

    Obama Can’t Dance: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RsWpvkLCvu4

    Ok, scratch rhythm and dancing off of the list of physical activities he does well.

    Obama Shooting Clay Pigeons with Shotgun http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2013/02/02/white-house-releases-photo-of-obama-shooting-shotgun/

    Yeah, I always shoot clays with NO shooting jacket with ammo pouches, and put my hand right up near the hot barrel, and NOT use the first portion of my index finger to pull the trigger, and wear t-shirt and blue jeans, and SHOOT SO LOW, my reaction time would have to be instantaneous to hit 50-80 mph clay pigeons.

    Obama Sucks at Ping-Pong http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JxU2SOmA2B4

    But he looks like a pro playing next to horrible David Cameron.

    Scratch Soccer of the List: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fvqJ5fz1Nw

    NBC Brian Williams Does His Best to Pretend Obama Has Football Skills http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YpYcIgv7W-c

    Catching the ball away from his body. “WOW” Brian Williams gushes. Stumbling face-first into the sand, “Fabulous!” Gushes Brian Williams. 2 on 2 attempting to throw a pass to someone clearly not even trying to defend him, “Hardcore!” Gushes Brian Williams. To me, the still photos are fairly embarrassing, but the spin doctors have no trouble twisting that around. Yep, you 50 year olds are not even close to being in the same physical league as this guy! –Gushes Brian Williams.

    So, no hand-eye coordination, no power, no proper form in any of his attempts, and yet the media is ALWAYS all-over his “superior skill.” They did the same thing with Kim Jung Il of N.Korea. -Just do everything they can to make him look like superman, no matter how horrible he really is.
