The Back Nine

Political Cartoons by Gary Varvel

First, a thought which sums up the Zero’s second inaugural address quite succinctly.

“I thought this was an amazing speech, historically very important. Not memorable…there’s not a line here that will ever be repeated, but I think very important historically. This was really Obama unbound. And I think what’s most interesting is that Obama is declaring the end of Reaganism.”
–Charles Krauthammer

Hat tip to lobo91 for the Dr. Krauthammer quote.

I too have found reason to celebrate January 20, 2013, (the actual inauguration date for the Bamster’s second term, today’s kabuki theater was merely for show.) First, my beloved Penguins improved their record to 2-0-0 in the lockout shortened season in which each and every game has increased in significance by a factor of 60%, (and yes, I will do the math for you if requested,) and secondly, we have officially entered the Back Nine of the national nightmare known as the Obama Presidency. That is to say, that as of now, we have seen him be President for a longer period than he is constitutionally able to remain as our President. Granted, I worked hard and voted for this to be over as of yesterday, but apparently we still have a majority of Americans casting ballots in important elections without taking the trouble to really consider critically the issues and positions on those issues held by the candidates running for office. So, while I wished to not even play Nine, it looks as though America desires to pay for the full Eighteen, and pay for it we will!

Make no mistake about it, the Back Nine can be a pretty good place to be. At the end of it lies the Nineteenth Hole, and coincidentally, I can hardly think of the Obama Presidency without feeling the sudden urge to punish the living daylights out of my liver with the nastiest brand of rot gut hanging out on the very bottom shelf, (under the sink if possible.) Being within weeks of my 50th birthday, I can safely say that I am on the Back Nine of my life. While it’s been a blast so far, I must say that believing that the youth of America is our future has me drinking even more these days. My generation you see did a truly lousy job of teaching them anything, (as a whole, I’m sure your particular kid is simply brilliant.) We have you see, an entire generation of youth who act so entitled, and apparently believe in that entitlement so fervently, the American Psychiatric Association felt it necessary to remove Narcissistic Personality Disorder from their list of official things that can go wrong with the belfries that sit atop our collective shoulders. With that as a future for America, my advice to you, is to start drinking heavily. The self entitled crap we saw emanating from occupy Wall Street is how they believe our country should be run. They get free crap, including cell phones, ipads, laptops, and gourmet food, and some nondescript capitalist pig gets the joy of paying for it.

During Barack Obama’s first run for the roses in 2008, he promised free cures that included everything from a chicken in every pot to drink this elixir as a cure for your Lumbago. All we needed to do was to allow him to spend like someone robbing an endless supply of drunken sailors. TARP and Stimulus have both been added to that magic concept known as the budgetary baseline, which means that we are spending this, plus the automatic increases each and every year as a matter of fact now, just accepted and considered a third rail of politics. Trillion Dollar Deficits, are now projected for as far as the eye can see, and I have never before pleaded fate for the loss of my gift known as vision before, but pass the whiskey, and lets hope it has its fair share of wood alcohol in it. Mr. Bartender, go for the crap bottle you keep by the trash can, if you please, I want my liver cursing at me by day’s end.

Now we are hearing something truly amazing from his second inaugural address. Deficit spending is indeed something to worry about all of a sudden. And how do we solve that problem so thoroughly created by those evil House Members who so thoughtlessly capitulated to the demands made by our current Chief Executive? (By the way, that last line is uncomfortably close to the actual language used by the man himself. He indeed has blamed spending on the opposition party primarily because they were stupid enough to let him get away with it.) The answer is what we all knew, at least those of us paying attention to the comings and goings of this bunch. We are going to have to raise taxes not only on the woefully too-small-a-group-to-cover-the-tab-after-all-rich, but on everybody in a fashion that will, I promise you this, turn out to be even more regressive than the Social Security Tax. So, now we can officially label the Obama Presidency as the Dennis Moore Presidency. I hope that sticks.

There is a silver lining however, and that is this. No matter what happens, Four years from now will bring a new President who will still have our current Constitution as the ultimate law of the land. No Amendments will be ratified during these times when sentiments are split so evenly between left and right.

Take solace that every thing that is done by man, can be undone. Barack Obama’s term is now officially past its half way mark. Every bit of damage done by Barack Obama and his merry band of sycophants can be repaired. The work will be hard, and it will suck, but it is possible. Barack Obama won reelection, and that will have repercussions. It is also true that nothing will be fixed until we get our act together and win some elections, (and I truthfully do not care if another person with the letter R appearing after their name ever wins again.) While it is true that the current group, and even some before them have largely ignored the Constitution recently, that does not change the fact that this document is still the law of the land, our contract with our government that defines just exactly how far we are willing to let them go. They have shredded the Constitution, primarily because we the people have allowed it. When we stop allowing it, they’ll stop shredding it.

I have faith in a few things. I have faith in God, in the wisdom of our founding fathers, in the capacity of my fellow Americans to eventually come to the right decision. Our nation will survive the Obama assault on our freedoms, and our Republic will one day thrive, despite his best efforts to destroy us. An overwhelming majority of our State Level pols. represent the conservative point of view. The House does have the ability, any time they so choose to shut down the profligate spending taking place. More importantly, if we got our side out to the polls to flex our electoral muscle, a liberal might not ever again win national election. Conservatives staying home in droves is what caused all of this as much as anything else. That includes primaries by the way, as the GOP establishment could never have inflicted us with Romney, McCain, or either Bush, had a sufficient number of people not voted for them.

The fault dear Brutus is in ourselves and not in our stars, that we are underlings.

    Today was a big day for me. I’ve re-thought my views on the topic that shall never be discussed. In fact, it shoulda been the law of the land even earlier -- say 1940 …
    I’ve come to loathe my own generation. The collective gleam in the eye(s) of the Greatest Generation, their hopes, dreams and aspirations for the boomers …
    How many are rolling in their graves today ?

    None of the damage done by Obama.
    Just like none of the damage done by Clinton has been undone.
    Just like none of the damage done by Carter has been undone.
    Just like none of the damage done by Johnson has been undone.

    Tingles Compares Obama Second Inaugural Speech To Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address…

    Today, thanks to MSNBC’s Chris Matthews, it took less than five minutes for the comparison to be drawn between President Obama’s second inaugural address and, well, all manner of things Lincoln. “It reminds me of another second inaugural, Lincoln’s, so much of Lincoln in that speech, from the Gettysburg Address to the second inaugural itself,” Matthews said. “He talked about the government that we want, which is infrastructure, education, regulation, all the good things, and then recognizing that government can’t solve all the problems.”

    “The government we want”?

    Who’s “we”?

    Obama First Term: Food Stamp Recipients Increased 11,133 Per Day…

    During President Obama’s first term, the number of persons taking federal food stamps, formally known as the Supplemental Assistance Nutrition Program (SNAP), increased by approximately 11,133 persons per day.

    When Obama was inaugurated in January 2009, the number of SNAP recipients was 31,939,110. By October 2012, the latest month reported, they had jumped to 47,525,329.

    That means the food stamp program grew by an of approximately 11,133 recipients per day from January 2009 to October 2012.

    The answer is what we all knew, at least those of us paying attention to the comings and goings of this bunch. We are going to have to raise taxes.

    Wait until the willfully ignorant and recalcitrant Apathetiks, who voted for this monster, get a small dose of what hope and change really means where sustenance is concerned. And this is just the beginning of the sorrow the brought on not only them, but us who know the truth.

    Even it you count half that number as fraud, I bet the other half is a closer number to how many people are still losing their jobs.

    I read that Obama has put in an appearance at church. The ‘service’ ended after the minister used his soapbox to compare Obama to Moses and the Republicans to the following Egyptian army. The service concluded with the mandatory chanting of FORWARD …. FORWARD… FORWARD

    Perhaps they should have included Psalm 109 from the Old Testament, which reads in part:

    May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.

    May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.

    May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.

    May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.

    The “Greens” are praying for an accident at one of our Nuke plants so they can shut them all down.

    Reprocessing the spent fuel rods allows keep recycling the old rods into new ones instead of letting the rods that were used only once pile up in holding ponds at the plants.

    If he wants to kill something, he does. He just happens to use his power for personal gain more than most of his predecessors did.

    He didn’t become a multi-millionaire on his government salary, after all.

    @ heysoos:

    Although the location has been highly contested by both environmentalists and non-local residents in Las Vegas, which is over 100 miles (160 km) away, it was approved in 2002 by the United States Congress. However, under the Obama Administration[2] funding for development of Yucca Mountain waste site was terminated effective via amendment to the Department of Defense and Full-Year Continuing Appropriations Act, passed by Congress on April 14, 2011. The US GAO stated that the closure was for political, not technical or safety reasons

    Reid stuck an amendment into the Defense appropriatons bill.

    Unreal: Obama Advisor Says America’s Political System Isn’t “Worthy” Of Obama And The Opportunity He Presents…

    President Barack Obama’s communications director, Dan Pfeiffer, says that our political system isn’t “worthy” of Obama and the opportunity the president presents. He made the remarks the Washington Post.

    “There’s a moment of opportunity now that’s important,” Pfeiffer tells the paper. “What’s frustrating is that we don’t have a political system or an opposition party worthy of the opportunity.”

    The issue is that if President Obama wants to get things done, he’ll have to work with the uncompromising Republicans.”If he is successful, his record could include a variety of legislative achievements that have eluded previous presidents and a place in history as the president who moved the country beyond the wars of the post-Sept. 11 era,” claims the Post.

    I can’t take much more of this. The ‘paper’ that came out of West Point ‘think tank’ the other day was more than I can handle. I make a trip to West Point at least annually. Driving through, passing those hallowed halls, has always been a source of reassurance -- I’ve never doubted, not for a second, what was discussed/taught behind closed doors.
    It just won’t be the same next time -- more like an eerie feeling, concerned over what is being discussed/taught behind those closed doors. To think a Cadet might see me as ‘the enemy’ … what are we coming to ? I don’t know that I care to visit again actually. The museum/visitors center is now off post proper, at least I can spend time there with ‘what was’.

    Well the socialists are only polling in the mid twenties and even with all of the preferences they still fall waaaay short of a majority. If the new PM Tony Abbot is smart he’ll immediately call for a double dissolution of BOTH the House and Senate and force a new Poll that will totally wipe out the Green communists and destroy Labor / Green blockage in the Senate.

    By way of contract Tony Abbott has spent his summer leave from Parliament with his local volunteer Bush Fire Brigade as he has for the past 15 years or doing his duty with his local Surf Lifesaving club. The contrast between this bloke and the Red bitch of a Prime Minister who has spent the summer trying to manipulate the press into giving her free photo shoot opportunities, parleying with her socialist lawyer friends or threatening to litigate anyone who disagrees with her in public. You can ‘smell the fear’ now in all of the socialists words. They know that they are going to be swept away. Roll on the election. Please make it sooner rather than later.

    Australia is running about 4 years ahead of the US in electoral politics. Imagine the tail end of the Obama administration. The economy is broken and the electorate is baying for his blood. The polls show the Republican candidate ahead 60% to the Democrat candidate’s 35% with 5% swing voters still undecided. The Obama administration is in total tatters and folks are calling for him to be tarred and feathered. Nothing is happening in government as the nation just waits for the chance to totally destroy the Democratic party at the polls.

    That is Australia right now.

    “Gettysburg Address?”

    “Four years and six trillion dollars ago, our Administration brought forth a huge deficit, conceived in arrogance and dedicated to the proposition that all who do not support me shall pay what I determine to be their fair share.

    Now we are engaged in a great experiment, testing whether the Constitution, or any portion of the Constitution I have not yet wiped myself on, can endure my second Administration. It is altogether appalling that I can do this.

    But, in a larger sense, it is not I who has rended, it is not I who has trashed, it is not I who has discarded that document. The low-information voters I bribed with other people’s money, and the nonexistent voters whom my campaign called into temporary being, are the ones who have made this work of destruction possible far beyond my limited-attention-span power to destroy the nation I was elected to serve.

    The world will glow with schadenfreude at the prospect of America laid low, but it will never forget its gratitude to you who made my Administration possible. It is for us, in the meantime, to dedicate ourselves to the great work before us; to resolve that this debt so uselessly acquired shall not shrink, but grow, and that this land under my rogue administration shall have a new burst of spending, so that the substitution of free stuff for freedom shall not perish from the earth.”

I was away down at the farm when Mohammed turned up to pay and pick it up. My daughter felt uneasy. He insisted on unrolling it and then offered 50% knowing that it was too heavy for my daughter to roll and lift it back indoors. He then came on all heavy and intimidated her and gave her $206 (50%) and left with the carpet. Muslim bastard. Reported it to the online sales company and the cops. They will investigate and there will be a bad report filed but nothing will happen to this mongrel bastard. He will lose more that $260 in multiple insurance no claim bonuses when his Porsche gets coined repeatedly in 6 months time. Bastard Islamic animal knows that the ‘system’ will give him a free pass.

    Of course if you have ‘mint’ of anything collectible it will still command top dollar. The trend, at the time, was that these Ludwigs were going through the roof -- good condition. It leveled off and then started going down before I could clean ‘em up and slap them back on there. Parts are at a premium now too so it makes it hard to make anything sweat equity style. My JBLs almost doubled for a time. My hopes that the economy would turn around and people would be willing to spend those income tax returns …well, do I really need to say it ??

    They’re standing on the corner and they can’t speak English.
    I can’t even talk the way these people talk:
    Why you ain’t,
    Where you is,
    What he drive,
    Where he stay,
    Where he work,
    Who you be…
    And I blamed the kid until I heard the mother talk.
    And then I heard the father talk.
    Everybody knows it’s important to speak English except these knuckleheads. You can’t be a doctor with that kind of crap coming out of your mouth.
    In fact you will never get any kind of job making a decent living.
    People marched and were hit in the face with rocks to get an Education, and now we’ve got these knuckleheads walking around.
    The lower economic people are not holding up their end in this deal.
    These people are not parenting. They are buying things for kids.
    $500 sneakers for what?
    And they won’t spend $200 for Hooked on Phonics.
    I am talking about these people who cry when their son is standing there in an orange suit.
    Where were you when he was 2?
    Where were you when he was 12?
    Where were you when he was 18 and how come you didn’t know that he had a pistol?
    And where is the father? Or who is his father?
    People putting their clothes on backward:
    Isn’t that a sign of something gone wrong?
    People with their hats on backward, pants down around the crack, isn’t that a sign of something?
    Isn’t it a sign of something when she has her dress all the way up and got all type of needles [piercing] going through her body?
    What part of Africa did this come from??
    We are not Africans. Those people are not Africans; they don’t know a thing about Africa …..
    I say this all of the time. It would be like white people saying they are European-American. That is totally stupid.
    I was born here, and so were my parents and grand parents and, very likely my great grandparents. I don’t have any connection to Africa, no more than white Americans have to Germany , Scotland , England , Ireland , or the Netherlands . The same applies to 99 percent of all the black Americans as regards to Africa . So stop, already! ! !
    With names like Shaniqua, Taliqua and Mohammed and all of that crap ……… And all of them are in jail.
    Brown or black versus the Board of Education is no longer the white person’s problem.
    We have got to take the neighborhood back.
    People used to be ashamed. Today a woman has eight children with eight different ‘husbands’ — or men or whatever you call them now.
    We have millionaire football players who cannot read.
    We have million-dollar basketball players who can’t write two paragraphs. We, as black folks have to do a better job.
    Someone working at Wal-Mart with seven kids, you are hurting us.
    We have to start holding each other to a higher standard..
    We cannot blame the white people any longer.’

    Or not.

    Additionally, this case provides evidence of around one and a half million invalid voter registrations in the state of California alone.

    Schumer: NRA Members Have “Dumb” Ideas About The Second Amendment…

    Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., suggested that may members of the National Rifle Association reject his gun control proposals because they have “dumb” ideas about the meaning of the Second Amendment.

    “There are reasonable limitations,” Schumer said yesterday on Meet the Press. “And some in the pro gun movement and the NRA in many instances doesn’t believe in any limitation at all. That is not unconstitutional. That just is dumb.”

    Here’s an idea: Replace “Second Amendment” with “First Amendment,” and see if you still agree.

    But the SCOTUS will never agree to investigate, because if Obama were found to be ineligible, both Sotomayor and Kagan would be removed from the court, and there is no way in hell that either of them or the other liberals on the court would risk that happening.

    “Everything that can be done by man can be undone.”

    Maybe it can be (though even that is debatable), but that doesn’t mean it will be.

    And if it is undone, how many centuries or millenia will it take?

    Case in point: North Korea.

    More “Juche” pictures here.

    There’s also the interesting archaeological evidence that the Dark Ages truly began, not with the northern barbarian invasion of western Rome, but rather, with the Muslim invasion of the eastern Mediterranean and North Africa. The Muslim invaders destroyed the productive capacity of the land, which has not recovered to this day, and perhaps never will.
