    I’ll start the show ….

    ….. the Blue Angels are in town this weekend and sweet babbling Crisco. Out here where they do their turnaround to head back to the airport where the show is going on they go past my place at about 800 feet and a zillion knots per hour. Cannot hear them coming but when they blow past, wowie, zowie even the the cattle look up and cheer.

    Shiver. It’s wonderful.

    Paris Hilton shares her opinion about gays. http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2012/09/paris-hilton-blasts-gay-men-aids-audio-recordings

    Yet again, the messenger of truth, like Romney, is to be ashamed—and not the people who are actually guilty.

    *Santorum is supposed to feel ashamed because gay men named a sexual by product after him. Are they not ashamed of their own behavior? Why is the shame all on Rick? –I don’t get it.

    Obama loses in court keep new group of 55 al-Qaida terrorists just cleared for release.
    Can you believe he doesn’t want anyone to know who they are.

    VOA: US Names 55 Guantanamo Detainees Cleared for Release

    The list represents about a third of the 167 terrorist suspects still in detention at Guantanamo more than 11 years after the 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States.

    Many of the men are from Yemen, where President Barack Obama suspended repatriations in 2010 because of U.S. concerns that prisoners could become involved with al-Qaida militants based there.

    Friday’s release marks a reversal of the Obama administration’s 2009 decision to keep the names of cleared detainees secret.

    The administration says it protected the information to “maintain flexibility” in negotiating potential detainee transfers to other countries.

    But the government said in a court filing Friday that “circumstances have changed” such that decisions to approve prisoners for transfer “no longer warrant protection.”


    It pointed out that 28 detainees have been repatriated to their native countries since 2009, while 40 have been resettled in third countries.

    Obama will spin this that he did better than his promise to close Gitmo. He released all the prisoners to join the protests and kill more U.S. Ambassadors.

    While, I’ve picked up on this happening a while back, the reason was to get hostages released to us. As the young U.S. soldier who has been captive, the former 30 year experienced Intelligence American whose wife has been ignored.

    Around 9/11 the terrorists released video’s of the prisoners, but it didn’t make the main media.

    We’ll see if they are released. Hopefully some of the people the Yemeni Pirates will release hostages before these animals get to them first.

    Hey Get Back Jack. How is your new doggie?

    • GetBackJack says:

      Dogging it. Ask me about the new mule.

    • canary says:

      Jack hows the new mule.

      I had to put down my dog at 13 she got cancer. She jumped a thug who had sneaked up behind me in the dark and had arm raised ready to pound me. One fast dog. I’m so sad. I did rescue a new canary. Real ugly but looking better. Liberty Too. (too as in the second named after my first).

  6. GetBackJack says:

    Dog is good, now. Bless you for asking.

    Mule. Heh. Out of a Percheron Mammoth Jack mix. Genetically we’re probably looking at 18 hands when fulled grown. We’ve had mules and like them better than horses. Not anywhere near as temperamental, steady as a rock. Refuse to hurt themselves so its a good bet the rider is safer with a mule than an emotional spooky horse.

    But this time I get to raise him from the beginning, and trust me. Once a mule bonds with you from earliest age, not even dogs are as loyal and loving.

    For What?!

    The Fed says to Prime the Pump. Then why are Obama/Reid/Pelosi looking to confiscate the 494 Billion with Taxmaggedon come 01/13?

    Why does the Fed pump cheap money into the economy on one hand while taking the real stuff out of it & into the treasury?

    If priming the economy is so important, why do they insist on devaluing our currency while constraining capital by confiscating what we already have?

    Consider this, according to the liberals, the Iraqi war cost 250 Billion per year. The Fed & Obama in one area alone is spending twice that; not counting Obama Care, Welfare, Medicaid, SS & the interest.

    All things considered if Bush was so bad so unpatriotic to put us in debt then according to the numbers alone, OBAMA IS TEN TIMES WORSE.

    He’s Gotta Go & the rest of them too!

    When the safe and confidential delivery of, um, certain difficult items such as human eyes, blood diamonds, Nazi gold, the odd vial of Polonium or Barry Soetero’s Columbia transcripts, to certain people in certain places, is what you need, you call for… DIDIER MANTOOTH, International Bonded Courier!

    Didier Mantooth, a man without a country, without a past but with a darn weird name travels the world, flying from danger into danger with only a Panamanian passport and a briefcase shackled to his wrist for company. Let’s listen in on his newest adventure…OPERATION DIG UP THE VOTE!

    “Ah, Mantooth! Salaam aleikem! You came quickly”.

    “Mantooth always comes quickly”.

    “Um, yes. Well. Do you have my package?”

    “Mantooth always delivers that which is consigned to him. Sign here, please. And here, here and here”.

    “Done! Thank you. Say, you did not, by any chance, drop, jostle or spill this package, did you? You didn’t go past any Geiger counters or suchlike?”

    “No to all. Mantooth is the careful steward of his clients’ precious treasures”.

    “But of course! Your rectitude is unquestioned! But, my dear friend, do you never become curious about what it is that you transport in such urgency secrecy to so many divers and exotic locations? Do you never wish to have the tiniest little peep inside?”

    “Mantooth is a stranger to impudent curiosity. Total stranger. Well, maybe an eensey little bit, sometimes. So, what’s in there anyway?”

    “Ha! That is for me to know and the Jews to find out” said the grinning Iranian.

    “Mantooth sees –oh, excuse me – I mean him, Excellency: Mantooth has a call coming in. Mantooth here! Oui. Oui. Oui. D’accord. Je viens!”

    A few words later Didier Mantooth stood within the gleaming halls of George Soros’ hollowed out volcano secret headquarters.

    “Ah, Mantooth. You came quickly” said the wizened Hungarian.

    “Mantooth always comes quickly”.

    “Yes, I heard about that. Try thinking about sports or something; that always worked for me”.

    “Mantooth thanks you for the advice. You have a delivery for me, I mean him?”

    “Indeed I do! A delivery to be entrusted only to the most trustworthy of couriers – this simple memory stick”. Soros held up the said item, which twinkled in the cavern light. The international powerbroker stroked his stick with a liver spotted, hairy knuckled hand. “This device, this humble object carries within it…the future of the world!”

    “Zut!” gasped Didier Mantooth, wicked impressed.

    “When you take hold of my stick you take hold of …tomorrow – and indeed, forever!”

    “Zut and double zut! So where do you want this thing delivered to?”

    Soros gave a low chuckle. “Tell me, Mantooth; do you wish to see America humbled on the international stage? Do you wish for her generations of misery and woe? Do you wish to see the American people reduced to helotry and despair?”

    “Um, I guess not really,no”.

    “Well, I do! And so do all my friends! And we’ve put a ton of money into making it happen. That is why we must ensure that our chosen puppet – I mean, president, is re-elected for the second of his five terms in office. And this is the instrument by which that will happen!”

    “Mantooth is impressed –but Mantooth wonders…how can this be? What power resides within this stick of memory?”

    “Haha!” laughed Soros. “Haha! There is little danger in telling you, since if this leaks your life is forfeit! This memory stick contains the names of everyone registered to vote in each of the so-called ‘swing’ states since the 1928 Smith versus Hoover contest!”

    “So? wonders Mantooth” Mantooth wondered.

    “Wonder not! These voters are dead! Deader than dead! Deader than my dead dog Putzi – ach, how I miss him. But on November 6, these dead people will rise again – and vote for president!”

    “Really? Who for?”

    Soetero -no, I mean Denham, no -“Obama – that’s it! Who else! What do you think? That we can count on real voters to push that blustering flop over the finish line? That our media allies can do it all, hard as they try? Get real, Mantooth! We need dead people, the more the better!”

    “Mantooth wonders; what about the Hispanic vote?”

    “Oh, we have dead Hispanics too – mucho! And plenty of live ones parked in the holding pens, awaiting deployment”.

    “Hmmm, dead people voting, eh? Massive electoral fraud, huh? Mantooth gets it: why, you want to steal the election!”

    “Well, duh! We’re never going to win it the honest way. Now you take that memory stick and you take it to this address in Chicago and you deliver it to ‘Dave’ –and no one else. Got that? ‘Dave’ –he’ll know what to do”.
    “Mantooth understands the mission. He will carry it through”.

    …or will he? Will Mantooth arrive safely to meet with the mysterious “Dave” and steal the election for President Soetero? Or will a bird strike, unexplained loss of cabin pressure, snakes on a plane or some other inexplicable occurrence prevent the fulfillment of his world changing mission and save the country? The choice is ours, friends…the choice is all ours…
