  1. Actually hadn’t read those till now Eric, but thanks– excellent stuff!

    “While it’s always weird central in Berkeley, now there’s a malaise in the air…”

  2. That is hilarious! I’m surprised that they didn’t stop! And where is the bottle of Jack for the shot glass?

  3. Naw, it just means Obama’s stimulus package is not working and people are getting desperate

  4. You remembered the plate this time. 😉

  5. LMAO! As I walk the mean streets of Chicago, I pass many little shops that still have Obama shirts, caps and other items in their windows. Now and then I spot some on sale, priced to move. I should get photos of that, eh? Keep up the great work!

    Is that Alex Lane, without the puny-pony tail-??

    I have both observed and read about, the number of Obama bumper stickers that have (interestingly) disappeared from most of the cars that used to proudly display them.

    Even in neighborhoods around some large metropolitan areas, where I once saw lots & lots of ‘Hope-e-Change’ (aka: sh-t for brains mentality) bumper stickers, most all these are gone-!!

    Gee whiz,… what happened-?
    Did the welfare-witch who pronounced to ‘the messiah’ her “need” for a new kitchen, car, [and a life-time supply of booze],… did she finally realize the entitlement gravy-train was not there to kiss her butt-?

    Seven+ months into his administration, Obama is already becoming a laughing-stock, a walking joke, a buffoon-!

    Yes-!! I laughed my ass silly – the very moment the IOC dumped Chicago in the FIRST round of balloting,… and that was about 30 minutes before Rush began his radio show, having lots of fun with the subject-!

    Keep an eye open for the increase of more grey hair salting the sides of Obama’s head… and Michele making more foolish petty-liar statements similar to her ‘sitting on her daddy’s lap’, watching Carl Lewis win gold (when she was 20 years old).

    A delicious and revealing part of Obama’s character;
    In forty-one (41) speeches, Obama has mentioned himself 1,198 times (… 1,121 “I”s and just 77 “me”s.).
    Ref: http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2009/09/23/dan-gainor-obama-speeches-ego/

    In the 1990’s, I kept count of the extreme number of times Clinton did this… another narcissist punk-!

    For those of you inclined, I encourage you to reference FM 22-100, Leadership manual.
    Being a government document, you can find it as a free pdf download from the web, if you look enough).

    By no coincidence, the MBA programs at all the leading ‘Ivy League’ universities were designed around the contents of THIS document (per Gen McCaffery, as the Deputy Post Commander of Ft Benning, 1986, teaching one of my Infantry Officer classes).

    This manual clearly defines and demonstrates how character & integrity are at the core of effective leadership.

    A simple overview of the contents of the first chapter, any honest person can see that Obama, Clinton, Carter, are/ were miserable, pathetically failed flunkies, grossly unqualified to be President.
    Note: this is a non-partisan document.

    [Zack – I have the pdf file of this manual – if you want/care to make it easily available to those interested, I will send it to you (yes, I know you have many other priorities)].

    How inconvenient for liberals however, facts frequently are that way-!

    Sadly, even though it is at the expense of the security of our Republic, I love watching the putrid character of these two ACORN-like thugs (Barack & Michelle) getting exposed-!

    I saw O’Bama commemorative plates for $19.95 each, and I thought, “That’s a lot of money for a clay pigeon… Pull!… BANG!”

    Oops, Strike that! Tell the FBI I only meant shooting the PLATE! I was O’Bama to LIVE to be 100 years old (in Levenworth, but ALIVE)!

  6. Vegas: Terrific follow-up idea, courtesy of you, with Devon and Allison pulling over to yardsale-shop among the broken dreams. As diehard lefties they’ll be boosting Obama right to the bitter end of his one-term debacle.

    The “bottle of Jack” you search for is by my side as I read the headlines daily.

    Chuck: But ‘desperate’ doesn’t jive well with ‘dream.’ As I understood the Obama/Oprah vision for us, all were to be happy in a New America in which hardship was part of the past. Seems like ’employment’ should have been part of that mix.

    Yes, Jeffersonian, I did manage to squeeze in the Official Obama Plate this time; I think it’s the same one lots of now-unemployed Obama supporters will be eating their dogfood out of.

    Tom: Great to hear of your “priced-to-move’ Obama souvenir sightings, particularly since you cover the Chicago area where all such trash might have been expected to hang onto its glamour awhile. We should all check your site for possible future photo-postings, they’d be a joy to behold.

    Steve T.: I think that Leadership manual would be most useful to have, thanks for the offer. And yes, I too celebrated the Obama failure in Copenhagen and am proud to have done so. He is, as any clearsighted person can glean from his extremism at nearly every turn, a menace to this country; anything that takes him down a peg & helps clear the haze from the minds of the zombiefied smitten, is to be hailed.

  7. GeekNerd: Great material, thanks for the laughs. I’m not a marksman or gun collector but your scenario does tempt one to take up a new hobby.

  8. You’re right about the Jack. Vodka would be more appropriate for the dejected socialist, not a made in the USA legend like Gentleman Jack. My apologies!

    Zack-!
    You have another reason to illustrate Diversity barfing her guts out-!

    [Note: Before reading further, SOMEONE GET THE AIR-SICK BAGS-!!!!]

    It just broke on all the ‘news crawlers’, that Obama has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize;

    “….,President Obama wins the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize for ‘his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples,…”

    However, a blood thirsty tyrant like Yasser Arafat won a Nobel, sleazy totally-compromised reprobates like Al Gore and Jimmy Carter did too.

    What a bunch of twisted, Euro-trash morons, who populate that committee-!

    Perhaps the price of Alex’s Obama trinkets just went up-?!??

    …and Devon & Allison can ‘share’ a mutual lesbo joy-gasm together.

  9. It may indeed raise the asking price for Obama trinkets a bit, Steve T., but far more dramatic is the sudden devaluation of the Nobel prize. As of this morning they are worth less than a plugged nickel.

    They gave O’Bama the Nobel Peace Prize? For what? Instigating civil war in Honduras? Ignoring the coming nuclear war coming out of Iran? Ignoring the requests for more troops to end the war in Afganistan?

    This is more puzzling than them giving it to Arafat, or NOT giving it to Ronald Reagan for ending the Cold War.

  10. Ikabod: Remember, all leftist values are feelings-based, with little or nothing to do with substance or accomplishment. That Obama’s administration has witnessed nothing but a ramping up of global hostilities means nothing; that he has “talked peace” means everything. France and others were outraged at his suppression, during his U.N. speech, of the fact of a newly uncovered Irani nuke facility; but leftists and other Nobel types will have been comforted by his dishonesty and disingenuousness in that speech because it made nice and talked in squishy terms of Worldwide Peace, man.

    The quintessential Nobel laureate type, at this point in the Nobel organization’s devolution, would be Neville Chamberlain. Though profoundly abetting the precipitation of WWII and the Holocaust through his naivetee, he nevertheless brought well-meaning, peaceloving words back from his meeting with Herr Hitler.

    “but it IS worth it to see the “Right” freak out over it.” Imagine the complete liberal meltdown had Rush Limbaugh won the Nobel Peace prize last year. The streets would have been drenched in blood. Liberals would be pulling their own head off. moveon.org, dailykos, ANSWER, would be in a panic. Calls for boycotting of Norwegian goods and services. “Oh the Humanity!”

    Yeah, I think conservatives are more in “WTF?” mode than a general freak out.

    I get it, more left wing historical revisionism. I assume that the Japanese where just getting ready to sue for unconditional surrender before we dropped the two bombs? There was no bloodbath after the fall of Saigon. Peaceful activism and a few bong hits was all it took to bring about the end cold war. Reagan was happened to be President at the time.

    Please, please be honest with us. NPP going to Rush Limbaugh would have brought street demonstrations and calls for the stripping of the award. The NPP is an award that is highly regarded by left. You guys would have fell onto the floor in the fetal position with abject fear that the world was coming to an end. My Neo-lib sister n law was in tears when she heard about the nomination. Sorry I’ll stand by my own limited qualitative research assessment.

    Oh we would have been such better shape right now.

    If only Che Guevara was still alive!

    I can see it all now, Soviets would have bestowed to us peace!, friendship!, and would have pulled out of Afghanistan earlier. Saddam would have stayed out of Kuwait. There would have been no terrorism during the peaceful 90’s. There would have been no genocide in Rwanda. If only we weren’t so damned stupid, unilaterally disarmed and just trusted the liberals.

    “would have pulled out of Afghanistan earlier”

    Reagan’s involvement in Afghanistan sure worked out well for the US in the long term, didn’t it? Those “freedom fighters” gave us a nice pyrotechnic show in New York to show their appreciation for all Reagan did for them, right?

    Why can’t Republicans understand that actions have both short- and long-term consequences?

  11. Yea and Jimmy Carters involvement in Iran was a stroke of genius let me tell you.

    At least Regan was supporting the people who were fighting the USSR. The enemy of my enemy and all that.

    Ken-
    You have NO idea of what Pres. Reagan did to help collapse the (former) Soviet Union.
    His efforts were 180 degree’s from the mush-brain, panty-waist appeasement idiocy of J. Carter.

    Behind ‘the scenes’, Reagan caused the price of gold and oil to drop (BOTH these were critical to funding the Soviet military).

    And – he lead the build-up of key US military capabilities. The Strategic Def. Initiative (aka ‘star wars’) scared the crap out of Gorbachev.
    …and the Soviets knew they could not keep up, and there hold on E. Europe crumbled.
    Down fell the Berlin wall-!

    Also – your co-opting the term “wing-nut”…?
    – You libs need to stop plagiarizing from us conservatives.
    That term originated from the term, ‘left-wing nuts’, to include ‘moon-bats’, to include ‘bed-wetting libs’, the ‘left-wing fever swamp’, and ‘drinking the [left-wing] cool-aid’ (yes, Jim Jones was a fanatic collectivist, leftist control freak).

    If you care to study the life and administration of Ronald Reagan, you will realize our country owes him a long debt of gratitude for his accomplishments.

    True, no administration has been without its mistakes, such as the after-math & consequences of how we departed Afghanistan. That country happens to be a very peculiar piece of geography with a very distinct history.
    Ther strong anti-Western Islamic ideology was not forseen.

    If you care to apply the concept of ‘lessons learned’, that should underscore why we need to reinforce our military, BHO should listen to his generals, and decisively defeat the Taliban & Al Quada there.

    As a former Infantry Officer, I happen to know what I am talking about.
    ALL we need is the will to do it.

    Also – your reference to “…a nice pyrotechnic show in New York” – that was the consequence of 8 years of a whimp-Clinton administration, the “wall” he put up between the CIA and the FBI.
    While getting “Lewinski’s”, he was treating threats to our national security as a ‘law enforcement problem’.
    Consequences for having a pot-smoking, coke-snorting, draft-dodger, narcissist, are significant.

    Ref: The Road to 911

    Blaming Reagan-? Very shallow & ignorant!

    Your opinion is very typical of an ignorant, arrogant, presumptuous, pusillanimous, up-start civilian liberal,…
    You have not a damn clue what it means to fight for the security of this Republic. I doubt you have ever put any ‘skin in the game’, when it came to anything greater than yourself,…nor do you appreciate what that means.

    You exist and spout your oral effluvia, in comfort and security, due to the sacrifices of thousands of men, far greater than you will ever be.

    You never did offer any candid perspective of what your underlying, philosophical ‘beef’ was with Pres. Ronald Reagan. You do enjoy cutting him down.

    Was it something like, he had NO sympathy, or Federal aid to give those twisted, disease-ridden perverts who gleefully sodomized one another, in all those San-Fran-Sissy bath houses, in the 70’s & 80’s-?

    Or – he strongly and proudly stood up to a communist threat-?

  14. Wow, you are ignorant of your history aren’t you? The USSR was our enemy from about 1945 to 1991 and although were were never in an actual shooting war with the USSR we did get into conflicts with their proxies. You know Korea, Vietnam (where the dems stabbed them in the back by cutting off their military aid) etc? When the USSR invaded Afghanistan Reagan saw an opportunity to not only help the Afghan people but to bloody the nose of the USSR at the same time. And nobody can really see into the future.
    We were formerly the ally of the USSR to oppose Nazi Germany in WWII. It’s not because we loved the USSR but because we had common cause with them.

Still, being in the company that includes Yassar Arafat (nobel peace prize winner), should not be taken as a compliment. I can only imagine now Castro and Che Guevara (posthumously) will soon be receiving his very shortly. Oh! We must forget Hugo Chavez!

Along with the 14th Dalai Lama, MLK Jr., Albert Schweitzer, Teddy Roosevelt, and Woodrow Wilson. Fairs fair after all.

The NPP should be an honor, not a motivational award for the hopes that one will “continue” to perform positively. As for getting angry, I don’t allow things or people to piss me off. To me it was more of a joke, a bad joke.

    I’ll blame Regan for helping the Afghani people just enough to help Capitalism and not an iota more.

    “Wow guys great job dying fighting the bad guys in our place, so um, we’re not going to help you anymore.
    Hope you guys don’t end up mad at us or anything and wind up with a theocratic anti-western regime in 10 years, laters! -xoxo Ronnie <3"
