Gas Pains

Doesn’t Seem To Be A Media Crisis This Time Around

Price of gasoline up more than half a buck since early summer; you now pay more than 50% more at the pump than you did in 2009; current gas prices are higher than when media panicked daily under “evil Bush”.



Well that about says it all I think, but I’ll give you some quotes and links. We’re being screwed over, and our nation continues to not have an energy plan in our own best interests. Gee, that’s news.


The Federal Reserve’s announcement last week to move forward with more stimulus measures in an effort to spur economic growth caused oil prices to jump. In addition, the escalated violence in the Mideast and North Africa has led to concerns of supply disruptions. This comes at a time when Iran’s output is down because of sanctions against the country. In 2011, the Middle East and North Africa were responsible for approximately 36 percent of global oil production.

“With the stimulus announcement and increased tensions overseas, it’s surprising oil prices are not above $100 a barrel,” said Jessica Brady, AAA spokeswoman, The Auto Club Group. “However, it’s very likely the cost of a barrel of oil will surpass $100 this week, as concerns of a supply disruption in the Middle East intensify.

“Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like motorists will see much of a decrease, if any, at the pump, as initially expected this time of year. Instead, gas prices are likely to increase.”

The national average price of regular unleaded gasoline is $3.86, 3 cents more than last week. Florida’s average of $3.81 and Tennessee’s average of $3.67 both increased 2 cents from a week ago today, while Georgia’s average of $3.77 fell 4 cents from last week, respectively.

$3.86 is average? Really? Dude, gas is $3.86 in Jersey, and we have the lowest state fuel taxes going. I’m afraid to even look up what gas costs in California or New York.

Gas prices in August on average rose to $3.78 per gallon in Ohio and $3.80 in the region, the highest average prices ever recorded for the month, and the first monthly increases since March, according to a Hamilton JournalNews/Middletown [Ohio] Journal analysis.

Last month, the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline in Ohio was 12 cents higher than it has ever been in August, and it was 13 cents higher than any previous August in the Cincinnati-Middletown region, according to data from the AAA Fuel Gauge Report.

Rising fuel costs are tied to limited supplies resulting from refinery shutdowns and producers switching over to winter blend gasoline, experts said. The pain at the pump that intensified in August has not receded, and gas prices in the Cincinnati region and Ohio are on track to set a new record for the month of September.

“It was the most expensive August for gas prices ever in the state of Ohio,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst with GasBuddy.com. “It’s going to be really close, but September could be a record-setting month.”

Between July and August, the average price of unleaded gasoline in the state and the Cincinnati-Middletown region increased by about 34 cents, the largest spike in prices during that time frame, according to AAA records that go back to 2000.

The price hike occurred largely because refineries were operating at reduced capacities as a result of Hurricane Isaac, DeHaan said. Some Midwest oil refineries also had production problems, including a ruptured pipeline in a Wisconsin field.

“There have just been a lot of supply constraints,” he said.

Really? “supply constraints”?? You expect us to believe that the price shot up because there wasn’t enough gas to go around? That’s what supply constraints means. Raise your hand if you got rationed at the pump, or had to deal with a “no gas today” sign at a filling station that was a going business. Anyone? Bueller? Bueller??

RISING GAS PRICES

The average gas prices in August rose to $3.78 per gallon in Ohio and $3.80 in the region, the highest average prices ever recorded for the month.

Cincinnati/Middletown region

Year Sept. Aug.

2012 $3.88 $3.80

2011 $3.53 $3.59

2010 $2.71 $2.67

2009 $2.44 $2.53

2008 $3.77 $3.67

It blew me away the other day when the Shell station, always the greedy pigs in the neighborhood, suddenly raised their price to $3.89 the other day, while “Apu” up the street here at the no-name station was pushing his swill for $3.71.  The next day his price was $3.73, then $3.80, and today it’s $.389. Meanwhile the Shell station has jacked it to $3.93. And that’s cash price, for the anemic 87 octane goat piss 10% ethanol blended crap that passes as regular these days. Um, no, Regular is 89 octane, no alcohol. Economy is 87, no alcohol. Regular Gasahol may be 87/10, but let’s call it that clearly, and constantly remind everyone that just about all cars 7 years old or older will get about 10% lower MPG on that thinned out mix than they would on straight up gasoline.

Oh, and I distinctly remember the vertical drop in gas prices at the end of the summer in 2008. Gas dropped to under $2 a gallon here in NJ for a couple of days. It was sweet. And I’m pretty sure I blogged about filling up my tank for just a twenty.

CORRECTION: MY ERROR. IN DECEMBER 2009 GAS COST UNDER $1.50 PER GALLON IN NJ and here is the post: linky link. And in the comments there we have news of $1.37 in Missouri and $1.29 in Kansas City, even $1.79 in Florida ... so $2.44 is Ohio seems like a FUDGED PRICE to me. Try $1.43 media boy, you lying sucker of Obama’s limp noodle. Try admitting to a 300% gas price increase under Obama if the current spike goes up another quarter dollar. We’re already at 270% using the numbers from the stations right down the street from me.

Gas prices getting out of hand
People can’t afford even higher pump costs

There’s a lot of talk about getting the U.S. economy going. That’s a difficult task when gasoline prices are so high.

According to reports last week, the price at the pump is hurting consumer spending habits and slowing the already-weak economic picture. Based on the price spikes that have occurred locally in recent days, escalating gas prices will do more damage has we head into winter. The formula is simple: If gas prices go up, consumers will have less money to spend elsewhere.

Normally, gas goes down a bit in the days following Labor Day. But consumers were having to pay more at the pump through the weekend, as gas prices hit an unusual mid-September spike. Figures released by AAA on Friday show the national average jumped 5 cents this week, raising prices to $3.87 for a gallon of regular gasoline. This is just 7 cents short of the year’s highest price — $3.94 set on April 5.

...

Gas prices have risen more than 50 cents per gallon in the past two months.

Higher gas prices are eating up a bigger share of Americans’ incomes. Spending at the pump accounts for 8.2 percent of the typical family’s household income — just below last year’s 8.3 percent. Those represent the biggest slice of household income spent on gas since 1981. The typical household spends about $342 per month on gas. Before prices began rising in 2004, households spent less than $200 per month.

But it’s for your own good!! And after all, wasn’t this one of Obama’s campaign promises? Something about energy prices “necessarily going to skyrocket”?? Well, you voted for it, so make room in the hen house for another chicken coming home to roost.

Two British soldiers and four US troops were killed by those wearing friendly uniforms

Since we’re in a situation where we really no longer can tell or trust friend from foe, either get the hell out or just kill everyone who doesn’t look like us.
Yeah, yeah a bit over the top. Or maybe .... ? 

How much longer and how many more of our people have to buy the farm. For what?  And why aren’t we carpet bombing the countries from which the enemy is getting arms? 


Six British and US troops killed in latest ‘green on blue’ attacks

Two British soldiers and four US troops were killed in separate “green on blue” attacks, the latest victims of Afghan forces turning their weapons on Nato troops.

The incidents come just two days after an attack on Camp Bastion.

The soldiers from 3rd Battalion The Yorkshire Regiment were shot dead by an Afghan policeman at a checkpoint in Helmand province, moments after they had given him medical treatment following a joint patrol.

They were named as Sergeant Gareth Thursby, 29, a married father-of-two from Skipton, North Yorkshire, and Private Thomas Wroe, 18, from Holmfirth, West Yorkshire.

An Afghan security official in Helmand told the Daily Telegraph the killer, Gul Agha, had called over the British soldiers at a checkpoint at around 2pm on Saturday and said his leg needed treatment.
The 25-year-old was a member of the Afghan Local Police programme, a government-backed local defense militia where men are paid and trained to protect their villages against the Taliban. He had joined five months earlier.

As the Britons returned to their vehicles at the checkpoint in Nahr-e Saraj, he drew a pistol and opened fire, killing two and wounding three others, before he was himself shot dead.

Lt Col Richard Parry, spokesman for British forces in Helmand, said: “I can confirm he needed some medical treatment and it was after that when he opened fire.” “We are not talking serious treatment and we don’t know if he was genuinely injured.”

Hours later, four Americans were also shot dead by one or more Afghan policemen in Zabul province, bringing the toll from such shootings to at least 51 in 2012 alone – nearly one-in-six of all Nato deaths in Afghanistan this year.

The American soldiers were shot dead at a remote checkpoint in Zabul’s Mizan district after they had answered distress calls from policemen who were under attack by Taliban fighters.

The attacks came only two days after the attack on Camp Bastion.

Details were also disclosed of the hundreds of millions of dollars’ worth of damage caused during the Bastion weekend attack.

Six American AV-8B Harrier jets were destroyed and two badly damaged when around 15 attackers breached the perimeter around the camp’s airfield and began firing rockets and assault rifles at the aircraft. Three refuelling stations were also destroyed and six soft-skin hangars were damaged.

The attackers were “well equipped, trained and rehearsed,” the coalition said and had been wearing US Army uniforms to sow confusion during the attack.

British troops from 5 RAF Force Protection Wing (51 Squadron RAF), the RAF Regiment, were first on the scene and, fighting alongside US Marines, repelled the insurgents in a gun battle lasting more than five hours.

an american hero, lt. commander Joe vaghi, d-day, omaha beach. rip

RIP

Lieutenant-Commander Joe Vaghi

Lieutenant-Commander Joe Vaghi, who has died aged 92, was – at 23 – the youngest beachmaster at Omaha Beach on D-Day.

image

At 0735 on June 6 Vaghi landed on Easy Red section of Omaha, the easternmost American beach of the Normandy landings, abutting the British landings on Gold beach. As Vaghi reached the end of the ramp on his landing craft, he saw the man before him shot and fall dead into the water. Undeterred he strode on “as if he was running out on a field with a football under his arm”.

Vaghi was one of the elite corps of beachmasters: naval officers who patrolled between the water’s edge and first contact with the enemy, responsible for directing men and vehicles on to and off the beaches. While performing this crucial role they held command over everyone of whatever rank or Service. In the US Navy beachmasters were known as “traffic cops in hell” and said to hold a rank “just above God”.

On D-Day Vaghi established radio contact with landing craft still offshore, drove a stranded bulldozer to a safe location, and comforted an unknown dying soldier.

Survivors remember him calmly walking along the beach issuing orders through a megaphone. At one point, an Army officer asked him to give the order to “Move forward!” and as he did so he watched soldiers half-buried in the sand rise from their prone positions and charge 50 yards across the heavily mined beach towards a steep cliff.

Midway through the hectic morning, as Vaghi helped to move the dead, whose bodies were being bulldozed out of the way of new, incoming troops, the explosion of a shell knocked him out. As he came round he found his clothes ablaze, but after dousing the flames, and ignoring an injury to his knee, he unloaded fuel canisters and ammunition from a burning jeep, saving the lives of several other wounded men who lay around him.

As he recalled later: “We had trained so much that everything came quite natural, except one thing we didn’t do in training is to allow people to die.”

Very little went as planned on Omaha Beach on D-Day: many landing craft missed the beach, the Germans were well dug-in, and casualties were numerous. By the end of the day only two small isolated footholds had been gained; that the Americans had got so far was due greatly to the leadership of men like Vaghi. Three of the nine beachmasters on Omaha were among more than 4,000 Allied casualties there on D-Day.

After 23 days in Normandy, during which time he celebrated his 24th birthday, Vaghi returned to America to train more naval officers as beachmasters. He later served in the war in the Pacific, including at the landings on Okinawa, and was at sea, en route for the invasion of Japan, when he heard that atom bombs had been dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. His first thought was “I’m going to live a while longer.”

we need an army with the battle ethos of the SS

I went into my mail tonight before closing. Haven’t checked mail in close to a week. Maybe a bit more.
Among many things and much from Doc Jeff with thanks, was this.

I just do not have the heart to post here, the dead body of what looks to be our ambassador.  It is hurtful beyond belief, and maddening to know that the scum who so easily do this sort of thing daily, think they have achieved some kind of moral victory. Some good for their country and cause.
The awful truth is they are vermin who enjoy this. Seems like insulting or questioning their so called religion, is far worse then killing innocent people. They do not recognize embassies or ambassadors or any kind of civilized behavior.  Yet our masters who make these decisions seem to think the west can only fight this pitiless and ruthless, bloodthirsty enemy, using the Marquess of Queensberry rules.
That is a sure way to bury ourselves.  In anger, we often use the term fascists as in, islamofascist, to describe our enemy.  Well, if we hope to survive their threat, and lord knows they have made it plain enough, then we must be Nazified in our military response to them.  It’s great having special ops and Navy Seals and who knows what other high tech secret military folks are out there.  But that won’t be enough.
We need an entire army with the ethos of the SS And we need to use nukes.  Any ass wipe “activists” demonstrating against us should be summarily shot.  Any American embassies under attack anywhere should be equipped to reply with overwhelming deadly force and no apologies.
All members of foreign civil rights organizations should be deported with their families and any who refuse to be shot. 
I am talking about nothing short of the survival of my country.  This is not an uphill thing.  There is no hill. It’s a mountain and a big one.  The enemy will do whatever it takes within his means and ability to destroy us.  He has told us so and I believe him. It’s the one thing he says I do believe.
Oh, and we must delete his enablers in the USA also. 

H/T Doc Jeff

POWER LINE has a short article on the attack in Libya.
In addition to being a good update of the situation, I thought this paragraph from the article made an excellent point about the state of the Main Stream Media these days.

FURTHER UPDATE: This is just about beyond belief. We have a failed policy in the Middle East, an American embassy and consulate attacked by Islamic radicals in two countries whose regimes the Obama administration participated in overthrowing, a murdered ambassador–the first in 33 years–and the burning question
in the media-formerly-known-as-meanstream is whether Mitt Romney was wrong to criticize the Obama administration’s response to the attacks.

according to the headline, mentally ill can serve in govt. I thought they did that now.

OK, maybe I’m out of line and unfeeling. I’ll have to leave it to the readers here to tell me.  But this seems like a very bad idea to me.

Now I do understand that mentally ill can cover almost anything and some things won’t be like the sky is falling.  However, is it reasonable to accept as members of parliament who will make important decisions for their country.  Jury duty the same.

Oh well, I guess when voters get upset about things and gripe about the loony tunes in office, now they won’t be using just a figure of speech but the real thing.


Mentally ill to be allowed to become MPs, serve on juries and be company directors

MPs have voted to end ‘discrimination’ which stops those suffering from mental illness serving in public life as a rare private members bill is backed by the House of Commons

By Rosa Prince, Online Political Editor

Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, and Ed Miliband, the Labour leader, were among those who gave their backing to the Bill, which was introduced to the Commons by the Conservative backbencher Gavin Barwell.

It repeals the practice of barring those who have suffered from severe mental health issues from serving on juries or as company directors. MPs who have been institutionalised for psychiatric reasons for more than six months will no longer be forced to stand down from Parliament.

In a rare show of unity in the House of Commons, the Mental Health (Discrimination) Bill was passed without a vote. Private Members Bills such as Mr Barwell’s usually fail to win support, and are talked out of time when they reach the Commons.

But after the Government and Opposition sung behind the new law, the bill was passed with politicians on all sides of the health praising the reform.
Mr Clegg said: “It’s ludicrous in this day and age that a person can’t contribute to public life if they’ve had issues with their mental health.

“Discrimination like this has no place in modern society and it is right that these rules are repealed. These long overdue reforms will send out a positive message that the stigmatisation of people who have mental health problems should not be tolerated.”

Mr Miliband added: “These changes will help bring public understanding and attitudes towards mental health into the 21st Century.
“They will send a message that discrimination against people with mental ill health has no place in modern Britain.
“If people with experience of mental ill health play a full part in public life, our country will be a better place for it.”

Charles Walker, a Conservative MP who has previously spoken movingly about his battle with mental illness, was among those who supported the new law. “I am delighted to say that I have been a practicing fruitcake for 31 years,” he told MPs.
“What we’re seeing is an absolute sea-change in the reporting of mental health problems. There’s still some distance to go but things are improving and they are improving quickly.”

The legislation repeals part of the 1983 Mental Health Act which forces MPs and members of the devolved assemblies to stand down if they have been sectioned for more than six moths.
It also relaxes the rules on jury selection and company directorships as they apply to mental illness.
Mr Barwell said: “It is high time we dragged the law of the land into the 21st century. My Bill’s purpose is very simple: to tackle the last legal form of discrimination in our society.

“To our shame the law of the land still discriminates against those with a mental health condition.
“An MP or a company director can be removed from their job because of mental ill health even if they go on to make a full recovery. Many people who are fully capable of performing jury service are ineligible to do so.
“The law as it stands sends out a clear message that if someone has a mental health condition, their contribution to public life is not welcome. That is an affront to a decent civilised society.”

telegraph

Oh yeah?  How about that other affront?  You know the one. The one where ppl get beaten up and the criminals are not even referred to as such, and get off free because they are judged not to be a threat and were let off due to their supposed religion.  How about torture/murder even of babies and the guilty serve a couple of years and are out free AND,
their identities are now private to protect, them.  Wanna talk about that one?
The list must be a mile long.
I think the question is, if someone had suffered “severe” mental illness, how safe is it to trust them ?  To what extent did the severity extend?

Now this really is a bit bigoted of me but, the fact that such left wingers as Milliband and Clegg support this make it a bad idea, even if the sponsor is a conservative. (in name? don’t know)

OK to be fair about this.
Perhaps if someone had a problem when they were 20, and today they’re 50, even if the problem at 20 was severe, would it be at all fair to judge
them 30 yrs later.
I guess there are always two sides and too often I get stuck on one.

But I do stick by my rant with regard to an affront to society based on so many of the get out of jail free decisions being made. And what greater affront then for the victim of a burglary to hear a judge extoll the bravery of the burglar, and then NOT send him to the pokey.

Life In A Model Railroad



We had HO gauge trains when I was a kid. No, not the standard loop around the Christmas tree, nor a Figure 8 set where you could run two trains into each other and smash them up Gomez Adams style, but a real model railroad that took up a whole corner of the basement. Remote control switches, all sorts of wiring, tracks going this way and that, lots of scale buildings and scenery. Come to think of it, it was more of my dad’s kit. It wasn’t the kind of model train set an 8 year old boy would want.

Anyway ... I remember all the train magazines, and all the articles on building this building, warehouse, roundhouse, paper-mache mountains, and so on ... and I recall that there often was some kind of wry underlying humor. Like you’d build this scale factory for your train layout, then call it the Miracle Chair Company, which then let you put up scale billboards or boxcar advertising that said “If it’s a good chair, it’s a Miracle!”. Hur hur. Funny names for your model towns, roads, businesses, and railways.

And I thought it was all just so cute and kitsch.

And then I moved down here, and found out it was for real. Here’s just one example ...

image image

Nobody really knows why the road is called Federal Twist, but it’s been called that for a very very long time. Google it. The mill is theoretically still in business, though I think they only cut a log or two a year at this point. The building has been standing since the 1840s if not longer, and is absolutely chock full of the kind of humorous details model train people love. Yes, the sign is made from a real saw blade. The mill has an indoor overshot waterwheel. Hand-hewn of course. There is a sawdust pile 8 feet high under the building below the big saw. The place is in wretched condition, and a good part of the main floor is held up by a new timber baulk which in turn is held up with a bottle jack. I’m not sure where the mill race emptied out, but another stream comes sharply downhill across the very front of the building, and it looks like a secondary water wheel was once powered by it. The axle for that one is held up by a tree. Seriously, the tree grew right around it. Plus all the broken windows, saggy beams, and general beat to death “weathered” condition the small scale modelers love so much.

And it’s all for real, right here in Hunterdon County.

Spell It Out In Detail

20 paragraphs to NOT say the “T word”, but to spell it out in no uncertain terms.

The Manchurian Moron is so benighted he apparently thinks he’s going to further the cause of individual liberty and equality by bringing down all the tyrants and dictators, and letting nature replace them with whatever Springs up.

Naive? No. This goes so far beyond that, it’s no longer even on the same continent. This is anarchism hiding behind juvenile altruism.

But such simple-mindedness just can’t be accepted by some, so they keep thinking. And I think that what they think they’ve deduced may also be right: that the naivete doesn’t merely hide Marxist anarchism. It is hiding a direct push for those that have been our overt enemies for more than 30 years now. And thus the “T word”, whichever one of them you prefer: treason or traitor, they both connote the same bottom line. A reversal in decades old policy done without even a single debate in Congress, or a vote, or even a public speech. And yet ...



Remember, for one second, in January 2011, before even a dozen demonstrators were killed, a small herd of camel-riding Mubarakists rode into Tahrir Square trampling some protesters underfoot, and Obama immediately flew into an apoplectic rage, gliding close to personally claiming that Mubarak was a war criminal for attacking peaceful “democratic” demonstrators.

But in February 2012, after Assad has murdered over 10,000 Sunni mostly totally unarmed civilians by lobbing barrages of multiple rounds of artillery into Homs, why is Obama all but numbingly silent in-between his own barrages of multiple rounds of 18-hole golf? [ and now, 7 months later, what is the total?? ]

The reason: the US President Obama has artfully and silently pivoted US Middle East Policy from a Pro-Saudi, Anti-Iran paradigm to a Pro-Iran, Anti-Saudi imperative.

Look, sometimes you have to live outside the box to see and think outside the box. So follow this link to Israel and read for 10 minutes: The Obama Domino Doctrine: Pro-Iran/Anti-Saudi

image


And then when you ask yourself “Where has this guy been hiding all this time?” when you notice that the article is from February ... the answer is right here: Op-Ed #CIA 721: Obama, the Pro-Iranian Nuclear Bomb President:

Vice President Joe Biden blurted out, and then doubled down on, what President Obama really thinks: Romney is “ready to go to war in Syria and Iran.”

Biden’s verbal salvo doesn’t mean that Romney wants to go to war, but only proves that Obama is not “ready to go to war with Iran” and will do nothing to stop Iran from acquiring a technologically easily built U235 Hiroshima gun-type nuclear bomb.

The Obama campaign assault proves that when Obama says “all options are on the table,” Obama means “especially the appeasement, Iran-gets-the-nuke, option!!!!”

Obama is all too happily “complicit” in appeasing Iran into building a workable nuclear weapon, after which Iran will become immune to attack just as the nuclear-capable North Korea became immune to attack once North Korea acquired a bomb.

Obama’s Iranian Nuclear “Red Line” is actually circular “logic”, specifically designed by Obama to enable Iran’s acquisition of a full nuclear arsenal. Obama’s “Red Line” goes something like this: Let’s wait to attack Iran until Iran actually builds a nuclear bomb, and then we can’t attack Iran because Iran has the nuclear bomb.

No shit, our foreign policy has become a Catch-22. And not by accident. Once again, nobody says the “T word”.

image

If Obama is re-elected in November 2012, in March 2013, Iran’s puppet-state, Iraq, armed with even just the first tranche of the 18 new F16Is, and with a non-complicit US President Obama ordering USCENTCOM to deliver real-time satellite intelligence mid-air course intercepts of Israeli planes to the Iraqi Air Force, those 18 Iraqi F16s will become an impenetrable wall of death to any Israeli Air Force attack on Iran vectored through Iraq or even Saudi Arabia. For, if Israeli planes are using Saudi Arabia as their vector, Iraq and its Iranian masters will think nothing of violating Saudi Air space to intercept the Eastward vectored flying Israelis.

(See picture 7 below)

In short, Obama is much worse than a modern day Neville Chamberlain. In 1938, even Chamberlain didn’t sell Nazi Germany Great Britain’s Spitfires, and would not have let Hitler develop nuclear weapons. Meanwhile, Obama has fostered, heavily-armed Iran’s Shiite-Puppet Iraq with F16s and advanced radar nodes, and generally encouraged the genocide-threatening Iran to arm itself with nuclear weapons.

Israel won’t be Iran’s first nuclear target, the Sunni Saudi Arabians will be. Iran can use the Uranium bomb in such a way as to electronically decapitate all of Saudi Arabia’s advanced weapons, including any nuclear missiles Saudi Arabia might buy from the Chinese.

Just like with Chamberlain’s appeasement of Hitler, ultimately, America will pay 1000 times more in lives and treasure fighting a nuclear Iran in the future than it would if it effectively stopped Iran before it acquires a nuclear bomb.

6 gags

Seems odd I suppose to follow things posted with humor but ,,,, that other story isn’t going away and maybe a grin wouldn’t be so bad.

1. A married man was having an affair With his secretary. One day they went to her place, and made love all afternoon. Exhausted, they fell asleep, and woke up at 8 PM.

The man hurriedly dressed and told his lover to take his shoes Outside and rub them in the grass and dirt.

He put on his shoes and drove home. ‘Where have you been?’ his wife demanded. ‘I can’t lie to you,’ he replied, ‘I’m having an affair with my secretary, we had sex all afternoon.’

She looked down at his shoes and said: ‘You lying bastard! You’ve been playing golf!’

2. A middle-aged couple had two beautiful daughters, But always talked about having a son.

They decided to try one last time for the son they always wanted. The wife got pregnant and delivered a healthy baby boy.

The joyful father rushed to the nursery to see his new son. He was horrified at the ugliest child he had ever seen.

He told his wife: ‘There’s no way I can be the father of this baby. Look at the two beautiful daughters I fathered! Have you been fooling around behind my back?’ The wife smiled sweetly and replied: ‘No, not this time!’

3. A mortician was working late one night. He examined the body of Mr. Schwartz, about to be cremated, And made a startling discovery,Schwartz had the largest private part he had ever seen!

‘I’m sorry Mr.. Schwartz,’ the mortician commented, ‘I can’t allow you to be cremated With such an impressive private part, it must be saved for posterity.’

So, he removed it, Stuffed it into his briefcase, And took it home.

‘I have something to show you, You won’t believe,’ he said to his wife, Opening his briefcase.

‘My God!’ the wife exclaimed, ‘Schwartz is dead!’

4. Affair A woman was in bed with her lover, when she heard her husband opening the front door.

‘Hurry,’ she said, ‘stand in the corner.’

She rubbed baby oil all over him, then dusted him with talcum powder. ‘Don’t move until I tell you,’ She said. ‘Pretend you’re a statue.’

‘What’s this?’ the husband inquired, as he entered the room..

‘Oh it’s a statue,’ she replied. ‘The Smiths bought one and I liked it, so I got one for us, too.’

No more was said, not even when they went to bed.

Around 2 AM, the husband got up,went to the kitchen and returned with a sandwich and a beer.

‘Here,’ he said to the statue, ‘have this. I stood like that for two days at the Smiths And nobody offered me a damned thing.’

5. A man walked into a cafe, went to the bar and ordered a beer. ‘Certainly, Sir, that’ll be one cent. ‘One Cent?’ the man exclaimed…

He glanced at the menu and asked: ‘How much for a nice juicy steak and a bottle of wine?’ ‘A nickel,’ the barman replied. ‘A nickel?’ exclaimed the man. ‘Where’s the guy who owns this place?’

The bartender replied: ‘Upstairs, with my wife.’

The man asked: ‘What’s he doing upstairs with your wife?’

The bartender replied: ‘The same thing I’m doing to his business down here.’

The 6th & Best Affair

Jake was dying. His wife sat at the bedside.

He looked up and said weakly: ‘I have something I must confess.’

‘There’s no need to, ‘his wife replied. ‘No,’ he insisted, ‘I want to die in peace.. I slept with your sister, your best friend, her best friend, and your mother!’

‘I know,’ she replied. ‘Now just rest and let the poison work.’

the front line in war on values of the west

I don’t know what if anything I can add to what’s been said by Drew and others here in the comments section.

I do not personally believe that all of this is simply anger and outrage and if it is, it’s been orchestrated.  Just another convenient excuse to do what these smelly, unwashed animals do as a national sport.

As you folks can imagine, the papers here are full of the happenings which have also spread to Australia.  Germany also has been attacked and here in London, about 150 of the vermin burned flags outside the US embassy with the usual chants.

Until the west gets its act together as they did in 1941, and I am not holding my breath, do not look for things to improve.

As an aside, LyndonB had some remarks in comments and frankly I have to say I’m with him.  I think Obama still has a good shot at re-election but even if he loses, don’t look for any administration to do what so desperately needs doing.  And I think most of us are aware of just what that might be.

Maybe I should spell it out. 
Immediate executions of those terrorists being held if no intel can be gleaned from them, nuclear attacks. Kill and keep killing until there just isn’t anything left alive to kill.  I’ve said that before.  I still mean it.

Listening to radio news and reports of two US Marines killed as Taliban breached security at air base, first reports say some planes on ground were damaged and a large number of the bearded filth were killed and one captured.
Look for that one to demand asylum here and collect benefits.


The new front line in war on values of the western world

By Richard Spencer, Cairo, Ruth Sherlock in Beirut and Adam Baron in Sana’a

Stoned, burned, and pillaged, the West’s diplomatic missions became the new front line in a war on the values for which their governments and societies stand.

From Nigeria in Africa’s west, to Bangladesh in Asia’s east, the freedoms which the United States and Europe thought were a beacon to the world were assaulted with stone and fire. Plumes of black smoke rose above western embassies in allies and “pariah” states alike.

On Friday, the British embassy in Sudan, once a place where the Empire pursued its romantic, if quixotic vision of development, was stormed.

Chanting crowds took to the streets of cities as disparate as Jerusalem and Madras, Tripoli in Lebanon – where they burned down a Kentucky Fried Chicken – and Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, shouting messages of hate.

There can be little Islamist complaint about the West’s current role in Egypt, which less than three months ago chose as its first ever democratically elected leader a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The demonstrators were not this time complaining about western military intervention in their own countries; instead they were objecting to how western countries conduct their own affairs, their refusal to enact laws of blasphemy protecting Islam.

A Voice In The Wilderness?

When the men who killed our ambassador to Libya were in the final stages of their preparation, Hillary Clinton was in the Cook Islands, being regaled by locals in traditional dress.  Her seemingly endless world tour has prioritized symbolism and pageantry over substance.  So too has the administration of her boss, Barack Obama, and the costs are now becoming clear.

This explains why Obama’s chief diplomat said of the Libya attack: “I asked myself—how could this happen?  How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?”

Madam secretary, it is time for you and your boss to wake up and smell the global jihad. 

There are people in this world—and not a small number of them—who share the vision bin Laden had and have the will and means to act.  No amount of apologizing for America, embracing our adversaries or mistreating our allies will change that. 

Read the rest, from this Bush administration advisor.




And you did catch The Mustache of Truth on Fox News yesterday, right? Bolton says without a doubt that this is a coordinated attack and religiously driven. It is jihad. It is a religious war against the West.

Nuke ‘em till they glow.

So glad we spent so much money and effort trying to support movements for freedom across the Middle East. Bit in the ass much there Obama?? Why don’t you bow a little deeper next time, surely that will help? Perhaps a more heartfelt apology would do?

  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
