Crap Floats in the Ocean

And Apparently it also passes for News.

The search for Flight MH370 continues….

Considering the Ocean is littered with debris from hundreds of years… possibly longer, why does the sighting of it occupy the attention of the News Channels, Programs and Networks?

Is it Easier than tackling tougher Issues like:

The Soviet Invasion of Eastern Europe?

The NSA’s Domestic Spying and Keith Alexander’s latest Interview where he States unequivocally that not a single person at the NSA has done Anything Wrong… Ever… Not Once… except for those who did, those one times…?

The IRS targeting Political Opponents of the President?

The BATFE sending Weapons to Mexican Drug Cartels in an effort to create a Case for more Domestic Gun Control?

The Skyrocketing Debt and the Fiscal Malfeasance it Represents?

The fact that Keynesian Economics has Not Lead to the Economic Recovery the Leftists in our Government Promised it Would?

The Destruction of the Greatest Health Care System in the World because Progressives want Control over the 6th of the Economy the didn’t have before?

The Utter Betrayal by our Elected Representatives to Look Out for the People by taking the time to actually Read Legislation before voting for it?

The TSA wanting to Establish Itself as a Federally Sanctioned Domestic Police Force by Arming it’s Agents?

The Federal Government wanting to Secure the ability to decide Who is and Who isn’t a “Journalist” in order to control the only Private Entity with the Resources Capable of Maintaining a Cynical Eye on Their Behavior?

The DOJ refusing to prosecute voting illegalities because they just don’t agree with the Law?

The DHS even Existing when We already have the FBI and the CIA which were designed to be separate for very, very, very good reasons?

The Executive Branch unilaterally creating Law extra-Constitutionally?

The Un-accountability associated with a Specific Past Senator and Specific Past Congressman when they sat atop the effort to Collapse the United States Financial System?

I could go on….

But these Mysteries don’t require cloudy satellite pictures of lightly colored blobs with which a Dedicated Journalist can Follow a “Breaking News” graphic.

So I’ll just stay drunk and stop asking questions.  Flying Monkeys did it anyway…


It’s Time to Get Tough with Putin!

Pajama-Boy

The United States can no longer sit back and Tolerate the Blatant Disregard of the Rules the World has set Forth.

We know that Civilized Countries recognize War, and Brute Force, to be Outdated Methods of Communication.

We, as Citizens of The World, decided that Compromise and Common Purpose is what guides us in all our Endeavors. Of Course we understand that occasionally any one of us may become Confused or Feel Misunderstood.  Which brings us to today.

That circumstance has presented itself with Vladimir Putin.

It feels like Some Men just Can’t be Reached…

But President Putin is simply Misunderstood, he is lashing out because of his frustration. We need to reach out to him and bring him back into the Common Fold of Communal Understanding. We need to be ready with Open Arms upon his Return to the International Brotherhood of Man.

But until that time it’s clear that Mr. Putin requires some Tough Love.

So the following is my plan that the Obama Administration may employ.  It reflects the Hardline tactics the Current Administration has employed in the past when dealing with those who stray too far from the Common Goal.

The 10 actions for Immediate Implementation:

1.  The United States must triple the number of Rubles in the Russian Monetary Supply so the common people can realize the benefit of a burgeoning Economy which always results.

2.  The United States must create and administer a Public Service Campaign using Icons such a Man in Pajamas and Kittens to establish a relationship with the Common Russian Citizen and demonstrate doing what we want them to… is nice.  And We’re Serious.

3.  The United States should let the Russian People know that we will stop recording all of their phone calls… but not their e-mail, text messages and internet surfing habits.  We can give Mr. Putin credit so he can build up his reputation with his people.

4.  We should ask Mr. Putin who his political enemies are and once identified send our Professional IRS agents over to consult on how to effectively target them.

5.  If Mr. Putin insists on annexing just a few more countries we should send over our best BATFE agents to help coordinate the sale and transfer of firearms in order to create a reasonable case for incursion by the Russian Military.  We could even offer to up-arm the Bratva if Mr. Putin thinks it’s to his benefit.  That organization alone could provide a substantial number of votes not to mention voter loyalty inside and outside Russia’s borders.  They might even be persuaded to conduct voter registration as organizations like them have done here in the US for decades.

6.  We must set up a Twitter account for Mr. Putin so Citizens of the World can hear him.  Communication is the Cornerstone of Understanding.  And Concise Communication is always preferred when outlining Complex Ideas.  #Onebadasssoviet

7.  We can send over our other Best Practices such as wantonly Spending Taxpayer Dollars on Green Energy Companies doomed to Fail but Owned by Major Political Contributors, and Government Imposed Education which requires More and More of the Citizens money every year while providing Lower and Lower test Scores… but keeps Union Money heading his direction with no Accountability!

8.  In exchange we can ask Mr. Putin for advice in dealing with our Second Amendment Problem and how He might remove Guns from Citizens without Amending a Constitution.

9.  We can further support Mr. Putin’s Economy and the Choices His Citizens have. We would do this by Taking Over Russia’s Health Care System.  We can show them how to set up a semi-functional website to Facilitate the Process.  I understand there’s a number of Eastern European programmers who would be willing to build it pro-bono.  They were apparently involved in the construction of ours…

10.  And Finally Our Leaders can meet for a sit-down Dinner somewhere in Europe  where They could present Him with the other Bust of Winston Churchill with a collection of Cassette Tapes encompassing all of President Obama’s Speeches and Audio Books from 3rd Grade on.  Having a full belly, and some gifts, always lends to a Happier and more Congenial Environment in which to talk out our Problems.  If all this Fails to create a break-through… start with the Keg Stands.

As a note to the Obama Administration, please feel free to use any, or all, of these suggestions without hesitation.  I require no acknowledgement of any kind…

I’m just here to help.

 

 


Alphabet Soupgate.

The IRS, DOJ, DOD, CIA, BATFE and next up is the EPA…

Could the Liberal Blitzkrieg have encountered a Republican Winter?

It looks like they might be stalled right outside of their Social Utopia.

I tapped out a little ditty a while back regarding the pulling out of all the stops by the Leftists in Government.  I accused the Republicans (most of which I hold in low regard) of doing nothing to stop what was evident to every sober American… as well as me.

What I failed to take into account was the ability for the Progressives to over-reach.  And, over-reach they have.

It looks to me like the Republicans have no choice but to confront what seems to be the Hydrant Blasting abuse of power and Supercilious Subterfuge being conducted by the minions of Socialism.  It appears that all that Community Organizing has been a bit too effective in motivating the Useful Idiots.

Given the scandals at:

The IRS – targeting groups with Constitution and Patriot in their names because they are considered “the opposition” to the Administration.

The DOJ – using the power of government to covertly investigate members of the press while intimidated their sources.

The DOD – and it’s ties to the lack of response, and subsequent cover-up, during the assassination of our Diplomat and his security team in Benghazi.

The CIA – and the moving of missiles into Syria for the Al Qaeda backed rebels, possibly leading to a new “cold” war with Russia.

The BATFE – and the up-arming of Mexican Drug Cartels which led to the deaths of our Border and Immigration agents… not to mention hundreds of innocent Mexican women and children.

And now the EPA…  and a fabricated employee.  – Manti Te’o has nothing on Ms. Lisa Jackson who created a Mr. Richard Windsor in order to avoid scrutiny of her actions and decisions while serving as Head of the Environmental Protection Agency.  While she didn’t seem to relate her most intimate secrets through Mr. Windsor, she certainly expressed how she believed government’s purpose was to punish business.

“The  EPA and Ms. Lisa Jackson, its chief, have committed extensive violations of law  that should receive in-depth scrutiny from Congress, law enforcement and the  American people.  Yes the Obama administration has yet another serious  scandal on their hands.”

The full article is found at The American Thinker: here.  It’s absolutely worth the read.

The “surprising” revelations show no sign of stopping anytime soon.  And the Republicans are being dragged to the party in a meaningful way by the American people.  (Those damned TEA party types simply won’t go away… who do they think they are teaching folks about the constitution!)

This fall may exceed my greatest expectations in terms of political theater.

The only part of this I find truly amazing is that the Administration is doing nothing to put out any of these inferno’s.  At some point, someone has to get thrown in front of the bus.  Typically it happens sooner than later, because the longer you wait the more of them you have to throw.  But that’s the part I so truly enjoy…

So, I’ll fire up the grill, while Congress is forced by America to fire up the Special Prosecutors.

Nothing says summertime fun like grilling politicians.  (A helpful hint: They taste better if you tenderize them first.)


Faster & Furiouser

I had hoped (kind of expected) that the Administration would have dropped the defense of “gun walking” as a solid, well thought out operation built on good intentions…
They have not.
The Administration has instead doubled down on Fast & Furious.  Instead of allowing sunlight on this BATFE action they have declared “executive privilege” in order to protect those involved from any scrutiny.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (BATFE) could still be running such a brilliant operation as far as we know. The answers have not been provided nor does it appear they will be.
So….

Since Fast & Furious was clearly a well executed clandestine operation designed to stem the flow of guns into Mexico by Drug Cartels (by up-arming those cartels with weapons purchased using U.S. tax dollars and facilitated by BATFE agents in order not to impede the purchase and subsequent delivery of these weapons) who have demonstrated their blatant disregard for human life.

I have a several suggestions for operations that AG Holder could initiate as soon as possible…

1.  Drunk & Driver

This operation would be designed to stem the occurrences of overly intoxicated individuals from driving and subsequently killing other motorists and destroying property.  Here’s how it would work;  BATFE agents would set up in a bar and using your tax dollars, buy “suspects” drinks.  (Even over the protests of the bartender) Once the “suspect” is blind drunk the agents will then assist the individual to their vehicle and make sure it starts.  After the individual is securely behind the wheel the agents will walk off.

2.  Smoke’m if you Got’m

The mission here is to curb, or eliminate, smoking as it is a known carcinogen in addition to being sold heavily on the black market due to extraordinary taxes.  The operation starts at a local elementary school.  The agents would go undercover as teachers, advisors and students.  With the trust of their “suspects” they will proceed to use your tax dollars to purchase then give out packs of Marlboro’s to the 3rd and 4th graders.  (They are old enough at this point to know better thus removing any plausible deniability.)  The agents will continue this practice, including demonstrations of how to hold the cigarettes as well as inhaling, until the “suspect” figures out how to get ahold of the product themselves.  Once satisfied, the agents will leave.

3. Done Blowed Up

Finally, the last idea I have for AG Holder et al. is a little program designed to end all of those terrorist a-holes from blowing up our troops.  Given the involvement oversea’s of many of our domestic police forces I suggest inviting BATFE over to Afghanistan to start a special school.  The agency could use your tax dollars to supply the school with tons of PETN and some of the best explosive engineers we have to offer.  Once established we would invite any “local” showing the least amount of hostility towards Americans to take the three-day course on how to assemble, deliver and detonate a far more sophisticated explosive device than anything they might see being taught by their friends and associates.  Once the agents have completed several iterations of these classes over a number of months, they leave.

So there you go… full of the best intentions complete with no ability to follow-up and guaranteed to stem nothing.  Genius.

So why do we find it so difficult to believe such a ridiculous statement as “Fast & Furious was designed to stem the flow of guns into Mexico”?  Seems obvious, but I might be alone.

Oh!  I have one for the DEA… they could supply heroin addicts with tax payer purchased heroin in order to stem the use of drugs…

Wait!  Wait!  How about ICE!  We could grant amnesty to illegal aliens in order to stem the flow of illegal aliens into the U.S….  (crap.  nevermind.  They just started doing this.)

I’m sure with a few more minutes I can come up with a bunch more.

Where’s my bourbon…
