  1. Good morning, Hamsterville! Texanadian, wouldn’t surprise me if Hil sticks around, no matter what she says now.

  2. The Hil is waiting for the ‘arm twisting’ to begin. The Clintons love the power too much to pack it in.

  3. #2 Texanadian: Ifn it were really true that Hitlery will retire from politics and political life; the announcement will be a cause for celebration. I will be thrilled to no longer have to listen to the drivel coming from either of the Clintons. Good riddance to both of those stains on humanity.

    That’s what all the Libs want as an end result. First they start with “protecting” copyrights, then it’s like getting olives out of a jar. Once you get the first, each one gets easier and easier until you get the whole thing. That tactic’s been going on since FDR.

    Take your sweetheart to Starbucks for Valentine’s Day.

    Apparently the anti gun group’s effort to boycott Starbucks hit a pretty big nerve nation wide. There is now even a Facebook page to show your appreciation of Starbucks by not only going on Valentine’s Day, but let them know who you are by paying with a two dollar bill. I’ll be there, how ’bout some of you other Hampsters?

    Starbucks “$2 for 2A” Appreciation Day Going Viral
    Posted on January 26, 2012 by Robert Farago

    TTAG Commentator Greg writes: “Well fellow members of the Armed Intelligentsia, it looks like we might have created a genuine cause célèbre. At about four o’clock yesterday afternoon, Googling “Starbucks Appreciation Day” scared-up about 112k hits. As of about 9pm EST last night, that total climbed to 298k. Not bad at all for a lowly bunch of knuckle-dragging gun clingers. Do you think that we can get a million hits by Friday?


    And here’s the Facebook link:

    Hopefully most of you are aware that Starbuck’s Coffee has taken a position that lawful open carry of firearms is allowed in their stores. This policy has enraged anti-gun groups everywhere.a new anti gun group calling itself the National Gun Victim’s Action Council has called for a boycott of Starbuck’s Coffee on February, 14, 2012, Valentine’s Day.

    Show Starbuck’s that their policy of respecting 2nd Amendment rights and lawful gun carry is appreciated by those of us who are not afraid to take responsibility for our own safety and security.

    On February 14, go to your local Starbuck’s Coffee shop and buy coffee, or whatever you like. Tell them that you appreciate their corporate policy of allowing lawful gun carry int heir stores.

    Do something to let Starbuck’s know that they are doing the right thing. If you don’t have a Starbuck’s in your area, go to their website, and order some coffee, or buy gift certificates online and send them to someone who drinks coffee.


    By calling attention to a well-regulated militia for the security of the Nation, and the right of each citizen to keep and bear arms, our Founding Fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy. Although it is extremely unlikely that the fears of governmental tyranny, which gave rise to the second amendment, will ever be a major danger to our Nation, the amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic military-civilian relationships, in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of the country. For that reason I believe the second amendment will always be important. –JOHN F. KENNEDY

  6. I presume that you were aware that a court case was held in Georgia yesterday concerning Obama’s eligibility to be placed on the Georgia ballot to run for President in 2012. Obama was subpoenaed as a witness. His lawyers tried several different ways to get the case thrown out to no avail, including asking the Georgia Attorney to take the case away from the judge. As expected, neither Obama nor his attorneys were present.Here is a blow by blow description of the hearing.

    By Craig Andresen on January 26, 2012 at 9:25 am

    Given the testimony from today’s court case in Georgia, Obama has a lot of explaining to do. His attorney, Jablonski, was a NO SHOW as of course, was Obama.

    The following is a nutshell account of the proceedings.

    Over the last several weeks, Obama’s attorney, Michael Jablonski, had attempted several tactics to keep this case from moving forward. He first tried to have it dismissed, then argued that it was irrelevant to Obama. After that, Jablonski argued that a state could not, under the law, determine who would or would not be on a ballot and later, that Obama was simply too busy with the duties of office to appear.

    After all these arguments were dispatched by the Georgia Court, Jablonski, in desperation, wrote to the Georgia Secretary of State attempting to place Obama above the law and declared that the case was not to he heard and neither he nor his client would participate.

    Secretary of State, Brian Kemp, fired back a letter hours later telling Jablonski he was free to abandon the case and not participate but that he would do so at his and his clients peril.

    Testimony regarding the definition of Natural Born Citizen is given citing Minor vs Happersett opinion from a Supreme Court written opinion from 1875. The attorney points out the difference between “citizen” and “Natural Born Citizen” using charts and copies of the Minor vs Happersett opinion.

    It is also pointed out that the 14th Amendment does not alter the definition or supersede the meaning of Natural Born. It is pointed out that lower court rulings do not conflict with the Supreme Court opinion nor do they over rule the Supreme Court Minor vs Happersett opinion.

    The point is, to be a natural born citizen, one must have 2 parents who, at the time of the birth in question, be citizens of the United States. As Obama’s father was not a citizen, the argument is that Obama, constitutionally, is ineligible to serve as President.

    Disc received from Immigration and Naturalization Service entered into evidence. This disc contains information regarding the status of Obama’s father received through the Freedom of Information Act.

    This information states clearly that Obama’s father was NEVER a U.S. Citizen.

    State Licensed PI takes the stand.

    She was hired to look into Obama’s background and found a Social Security number for him from 1977. Professional opinion given that this number was fraudulent. The number used or attached to Obama in 1977, shows that the true owner of the number was born in the 1890. This shows that the number was originally assigned to someone else who was indeed born in 1890 and should never have been used by Obama.

    Same SS number came up with addresses in IL, D.C. and MA.

    Next witness takes the stand.

    This witness is an expert in information technology and photo shop. He testifies that the birth certificate Obama provided to the public is layered, multiple layered. This, he testifies, indicates that different parts of the certificate have been lifted from more than one original document.

    Linda Jordan takes the stand.

    Document entered regarding SS number assigned to Obama. SS number is not verified under E Verify. It comes back as suspected fraudulent. This is the system by which the Government verifies ones citizenship.

    Next witness, Mr. Sampson a former police officer and former immigration officer specializing in immigration fraud.

    Ran Obama’s SS number through database and found that the number was issued to Obama in 1977 in the state of Connecticut . Obama never resided in that state. At the time of issue, Obama was living in Hawaii.

    Without his attorney present, Obama’s identity, his Social Security number, his citizenship status, and his past are all OFFICIALLY in question.

    One thing to which there seems no doubt. He does NOT qualify, under the definition of Natural Born Citizen” provided by SCOTUS opinions, to be eligible to serve as President.

    What will the judge decide? That is yet to be known, but it seems nearly impossible to believe, without counter testimony or evidence, because Obama and his attorney chose not to participate, that Obama will be allowed on the Georgia ballot.

    It also opens the door for such cases pending or to be brought in other states as well.

    Obama is in it deep and the DNC has some…a LOT…of explaining to do unless they start looking for a new candidate for 2012.


  7. Los Angeles is deputizing city inspectors Monday to make sure actors are wearing condoms while shooting porno movies. They’re having a tough time finding qualified inspectors.

    Most of the people who have had experience with porn have gone blind by now.

  8. My 15% IRA withdrawal was deposited last night. Gotta go get some of it for my pocket.

    8,274 people had total taxable income of $204.3 billion in 2009, for which they paid $53.8 billion in taxes. That gives that rate of 26.3%.

    What would you like that rate to be? Mr. Buffett compared his tax rate to those of his staff, the highest of whom paid a rate of 41%. So let’s go with that: 41% (even though Mr. Buffett’s apples-and-oranges calculations included some taxes but not others).

    Let’s say we tax all incomes over $10 million at 41% instead of just 26.3%. How much money would that have raised in 2009? Answer: $30 billion — enough to fund the federal government for three days in 2009, or enough to cut that year’s deficit by 2%.

    And if we taxed all 8,274 of those rich guys at 100%? That would have raised $150 B — enough to fund the federal government for 16 days, or enough to cut that year’s deficit by 11%.


  9. Food for thought with usual comments that are interesting.


    It’s the “Politics of Envy” versus the “Politics of Resentment” in the 2012 election. President Obama has adopted the cover story of “fairness” to mask his drive to convince middle-class Americans that the real reason some people are better off than they are is not because they’re smarter, or work harder, or have a better idea to sell in the American marketplace, but because they cheat — climbing to the top on the backs of overworked, overtaxed, and underpaid Americans. The solution: Re-elect me and I’ll make the rich squeal like stuck pigs, rule by executive fiat, turn the EPA into an avenging Angel of Death for carbon emitters, and embrace the Muslim Brotherhood as, well, brothers.

    It won’t solve anything but it will make a lot of people feel better in their misery.

    The GOP counters by telling the middle class that the real problem is that there are a sizable number of citizens — including some of your neighbors — who are leeching off your tax dollars and getting a free ride through life. Health care, college tuition, food stamps, housing assistance, unemployment insurance — almost anything that Washington subsidizes is a waste of tax dollars and goes to undeserving reprobates (or illegal aliens) who are the cause of the gigantic growth in the size and scope of the federal government.

    That’d be a heck of a job to tell your mother or girlfriend about.

    So “assault” would mean apply the jump


    I was giving examples of consonants that do not merge well with “ad” and some that do. This merging develops when the prefix and the verb don’t seem to belong together. So “adsault” long ago evolved into smoother-to-pronounce “assault”. It means jump towards in Latin.

    The example of “apply” was to show that “ad” + “p” is also usually smoothed out, to become “app”.

    There is a good $25 word for this particular pronunciation process but I can’t come up with it today.

  12. Only a GM engineer would tuck the negative battery post underneath a bracket securing the fender to the firewall on a pickup.
    As they say, A special place in hell…..

  13. #20: A friend of mine has a VW Beetle. To change out the bulb in the headlight he has to take it to a dealer. Two hours labor. Good grief. Into the 9th circle.

  14. #20 Shannon: In my 1972 Pontiac Catalina (4 doors, 400CI, 2bbl single exhaust, 17 mpg at 70mph with a/c on) the spark plug closest to the firewall on passenger side would not take a socket with the wrench attached, I think it was the 69 GTO or something that one had to demount the engine from motor mounts and jack up to get to the spark plugs. Tell me again why GM needed bailing out and why they lost their dominant position?

  15. #24 Whiskers: Did you notice that there were over 10000 comments on that clip? I think his request was more than a request. You’re correct, people really have no idea what the word ‘respect’ really means any more.

  16. Here’s my story: I had hyaluronic acid injected into my left knee today. It’s a treatment for osteoarthritis that doesn’t involve the months of downtime you have from knee surgury. HA is the main component of synovial fluid, the joint lubricant. If this works well on me, it should give me 6 months of improved joint function.

    Anyone else ever had this done? Or something else done for knee rejuvenation?

  17. #24 KatFish, Man that was GREAT!! BUTT it is SAD that so many IDIOTS have no respect for the warriors that allow them to be the idiots that they are, in the greatest country that has ever existed. 🙁

  18. Has anyone else dropped acid?

    I saw a truck battery asplode once, does that count? Pretty Dayaam Spectacular! Planted the hood over the windshield.

  19. My uncle, the disgusting-lefty-former-pilot-you-cannot-talk-politics-with once had a car battery blow on him and it damn near ended his career.

  20. Oh about the dangers of exploding batteries, back in 1975 I bought a 1969 Vette that was totally run out, smoking like a “Tar Wagon” and without the original engine, paid $2800 for it and spent $348 rebuilding the 350 engine and adding 1968 327 heads (from a carb swap) with the 2.02 valves, then replacing the top $100 and repainting it $550. BUTT when I tried to replace the battery, NOBODY would sell me one! Because the battery was in the cockpit, behind the seat and had special caps that were vented, via rubber tubes to the outside of the car, so you had to get it from the Chevy place! Oh and I drove the P-winding dog-doo out of that machine for 3 years and sold it for $6800, I’ve NEVER, ever sold another car for more than I paid for it.
    BTW; It had 4.11 gears and a 2.2 Muncy 4 speed so @ 6000 RPM it was doing 125! Top speed, but it would get there in about 13 seconds. 😀

  21. #28 M42: In my experience, a whole lot of knee pain can be wiped out by effective therapy on the quads, glutes, and hamstrings. I don’t know about the acid thing because I have not had any experience with it. Knee pain can also be caused by your shoes not fitting properly or fallen arches/trashed ankles. In a nutshell, the point of the pain is usually not the source of the problem. In my practice, the point of pain actually being the source happens around 10% of the time. In any case DO NOT LET THEM COMMIT SURGERY ON YOU BEFORE YOU HAVE A THERAPIST (ME) WORK ON YOU.


    And blog nice to him the day before!

  23. I’m getting concerned the blogboss is upset with some of us overzealous flamethrowers and has boycotted his own couch. I apoligize for my part if that’s the case.

  24. I really don’t want anyone to think I am using this site to troll for customers; not the case at all. It hurts me to know that there are people I care about in pain, particularly when I know that more times than not I can effectively treat it.

  25. #40 GJT: He can’t be too upset, it has been almost a week since the angry blog monkey has come after me or censored one of my posts.

  26. And blog nice to him the day before!

    Always a good idea not to wiss off your therapist right before he works on you.

    X-rays don’t lie. My leg bones are rubbin’ on my thigh bones, ya hear me?

  28. #40 Tim

    the blogboss

    I still see him around on FB. Ya know, the last we heard, he was having his house remodeled before the holidays. Maybe it’s not finished yet and he is clinically depressed?

  29. I still see him around on FB

    I shut off FB, got tired of sifting all the drivel to see something with interest. Last straw was Sweetie’s Niece’s post a month or so ago, Great, Texans are playing and here I am in the ER with the baby! No more info, no follow up to what happened.

  30. Díganos más señora Romney.

    DORAL – Before Feliciano Ramirez heard Mitt Romney speak today, he was all-but certain he was going to vote for Newt Gingrich.

    “He can really debate Obama on all of the issues because he’s a Washington insider,” Ramirez said, echoing the sentiments of many recent converts to the Gingrich camp.

    However, after hearing the two candidates deliver back-to-back speeches at the Hispanic Leadership Network, Ramirez’s vote in Tuesday’s GOP primary wasn’t so certain.

    “I’m going to have to pray on it,” he said with a laugh after the Massachusetts governor gave a rousing speech to roughly 500 Latin American leaders.

    And, he said, it wasn’t just Romney’s enthusiastic rhetoric or Gingrich’s more professorial speech. Ramirez said he was impressed with the candidate’s wife, Ann.

    Ay, que bueno.

    Romney’s wife wows crowd at Hispanic conference

    “He has the ability to find the core of the problem and then figure out how to fix it,” said Ann Romney, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1998 and is a breast cancer survivor.

    I had not known that about her.
