Happy Thanksgiving

This year I am deep frying the big bird turkey. I've never tried it before, I usually smoke the turkey out on the Weber Grill. If I get any pics - I'll post them. We are having the in-laws over.

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Al Gore is a Liar!

From the article, which shows us just how Al Gore will profit by government intervention in the market in promoting environmental whacko ideas:

"It would be very helpful if you have government initiative. Without it, it will take longer for these to be economically viable," Patterson told Cybercast News Service. However, Bert Ely, a financial analyst with Ely & Associates of Alexandria, Va., is skeptical that the kind of green investment portfolio Gore is advocating can be profitable without government action. History has shown green companies to be risky ventures, he says

"Wind power, solar and bio-fuels all operate on tax subsidies or purchase requirements," Ely told Cybercast News Service. "The government stimulates demand. The most notorious subsidy is the 51 cent gas credit for ethanol."

"To the extent that you got some kind of government mandate here, whether it is cap-and-trade or a purchasing requirement, a taxpayer subsidy, to me that's a dicey way to look for a return on a venture because what the government giveth it can taketh away -- and often does," Ely said. "You're making a political bet, not an economic bet."

(A cap and trade system would set limits on the amount of carbon a company can emit. The limits are called a "cap." If a company has to exceed the limit, it would be allowed to buy credits from companies that pollute less. This transfer would be the "trade.")

In public statements, KPCB (Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers - a firm in which Al Gore has become partnered with) has pointed to the likelihood of new government policies as a selling point for investors.

It looks like a good turnout of intrepid Americans in Portland, Oregon. They were there protesting Al Gore and his scandalous and shameful promotion of the lie of 'global warming':

Portland, Oregon??!! That bastion of liberals and lefties? Gore is in trouble if the Portland, Oregonians are assembling against him!

A 'Photo Op'

As seen in the Washington Post, Obama's words of encouragement and wisdom, nay: caring, 'You guys make a pretty good photo-op.'

This said right after he informed them that they won't be getting the reinforcements that they so desperately need right now. Coalition casualties are on the rise, but tough tooty. Obama needs another photo op.

Can I share the despicable feelings that I have for BHO? Every single day, he does something even more stupid than he's done before, and every day I think to myself, 'He surely can't beat this, can he?' But every single day, he does! He beats it!

I was lucky enough to serve under Reagan. I always knew that he cared about the men and women in the armed forces. I feel bad for the men and women in the military today. I have 1 nephew serving right now. If I could reach in and pluck him out, I would do it right now.

Obama is a disgrace.

Moslem Aggression in the US

A moslem man ripped a crucifix from a customer's neck, starts screaming and yelling about how great his god is, rants and raves anti Christian junk. This happened in a California mall, the day before the Ft. Hood massacre, perpetrated by yet another member of the 'Religion of Pieces'.

He scared the crap out of a bunch of people. Many people called 911 - some hid in fear.

I'm trying to imagine what I would do if someone did this to me - or if I witnessed this incident. I think that I would be totally shocked, and would probably stand there with my mouth hanging open in disbelief.

What do you think that you would do?

Let's make a pact: Let's determine our course of action for future reference - just in case. Sort of like a fire drill, or having your plan ready for if someone tries to knock your front door down while you're watching the late show. I know what I would do in the fire drill and attempted break-in. We have put things in place, and thought about it, and in the case of fire drills - have even practiced it.

If a moslem were to rip my crucifix off of my neck and start screaming at me - or if I witnessed such an action happening to another, I have determined to act.

Without a plan, and depending on the time of day and how I'm feeling at the moment, I would normally: 1) Scream and freak out - possibly attempt to physically restrain the object of my ire, or 2) start crying and run.

With my newly found determination, I have decided that, no matter how frightened I may be, I will confront the aggressor verbally and loudly. If the aggressor is physically threatening, I will jump on his/her back (piggy back style) and cover their eyes with my forearms and hang on for dear life - all the while screaming at the top of my lungs.

Are you with me??

Did Michael Ramirez Get it Right?

I think that he did. Especially with the NY-23 election, a message was sent loud and clear. The Republican Party - the party that is SUPPOSED to represent conservatism in America - has fallen down on the job. In fact, I have had a problem with the GOP ever since they begged me to vote for Arlen Specter over Toomey. Dede Scozzafava in New York pulled an Arlen Specter, and she was quick to do it.

Although the media and leftists like to paint conservatives demanding their party back as 'extremists', they are wrong. The party went off the rails a long time ago and no - conservatives are not going to follow or finance them in their errant way.

I have heard leftists screech about big spending Republicans under Bush, and now that they've finally noticed that conservatives don't like big spending Republicans - they screech that we are extemists.

Scozzafava was no 'moderate'. Scozzafava was a eugenics prize winning, union loving, universal health care supporting, high taxing whack job. She was farther left than the Democrat who ended up winning.

Will the GOP leadership listen? If they don't, they will continue to lose.
