Tch, tch, tch

I warned ya, America. But didja listen? No. You went and elected an untested, "Present" voting, card-carrying Socialist that promised "Hope-n-change" but showed at every turn he was Clinton redux.
Are you gonna suffer the consequences? You betcha!

Weird Theme Meme


The rules are: Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences. The CLOSEST BOOK, NOT YOUR FAVORITE, OR MOST INTELLECTUAL!

My entry:

"After Moses came down from Mount Sinai, calling on God became an earmark of his people's successes. The patriarch spotlighted this most dramatically in his farewell address: "What other nation is so great as to have their gods near them the way the Lord our God is near us whenever we pray to Him?" (Deut. 4:7). The other nations may have had better chariots, better weaponry, but that wouldn't matter in the end. They didn't have what Israel had: a God who would respond when they called Him. And note that there was no promised help from God if Israel ceased calling out to Him. Only defeat and humiliation would follow."

Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire - Jim Cymbala

Seriously, this was the third closest "book" but the closest with 56 pages. The first was a training manual from a National Security Personnel System, and the next was the music for the Christmas Cantata we're rehearsing - On This Very Night (Karla Worley, arranged by Lari Goss).

I contacted my 5 by email, but don't expect much from them (you know who you are).

Metaphor for Jan 21, 2009

The only thing is that I'm not sure if it's a metaphor for the US economy, our national security, the rights of the unborn, or the Almighty's attitude towards our nation; probably all four.

I Hope To Take Even Your Change

President Elect, Barak Hussein Obama, responds to a Washington Times reporter's question of "How long will it take to begin ignoring all your campaign promises?" B.O. said "About that long..." snapped his fingers, and the reporter was unceremoniously kicked out of the celebration and a memo issued to his paper that they, too, were henceforth banned from all White House Press Conferences.

Exclusive First Look At DNC Platform

Harried Reid and Nasty Pelosi gave Straight Board an exclusive peek at the workings of the DNC. Here we see their version of the Illuminati struggling to achieve a balance of the demands of the party's base constituents and what they think they can sell to the sheeple of this nation.

Nasty, in a rare, candid moment; "The majority of the media is obviously in the tank for us so we aren't too worried on getting called for any of the, errrr, uh, planks that we fabricate. We just have to watch out for being so totally outrageous that even the nutroots won't buy it. Speaking of which - Harried; remind me to explain to the One that nothing should be called 'above my paygrade' when the cameras are rolling."

Scuze Me Whilst I Whips This Out!

Tired of the African Bees, Argentinian Army Ants and other illegal alien pests infringing on their territory, rodents of the southwest United States have organized militias bent on eliminating the foreign threat to their turf. Unsurprisingly, the Dali Bama issued a statement calling for multi-lateral disarmament talks and begged the US prairie dogs to "...give up just a small section of New Mexico that the undocumented varmints could call their own in the name of cooperation."

"Global Warming; It Is A Scam." - John Coleman

"According to recent news reports, a top observatory that has been measuring sun spot activity predicts that global temperatures will drop by two degrees over the next 20 years as solar activity slows and the planet drastically cools down. They suggest this could potentially herald the onset of a new ice age. Following the end of the sun’s most active period in over 11,000 years, the last 10 years have displayed a clear cooling trend as temperatures post-1998 leveled out and are now decreasing.

Earlier this year, John Coleman, the founder of The Weather Channel, stated that manmade global warming is “the greatest scam in history,” adding, “I am amazed, appalled and highly offended by it. Global Warming; It is a scam.” Coleman said the theory of global warming is based on fraudulent science."

For the 2 0r 3 that read this site, thanks for your patience.
Our household move is complete and we're back in southeastern Georgia. Happily, only a couple of broken items and neither the wife or I killed each other due to frayed nerves.

New Metaphor for 2008 Election Choices

I just don't think I could find a more appropriate metaphore. I mean, honestly, we're sliding ever closer to November (the bottom of the slide) and I know it's gonna hurt something awful, regardless of which of the two candidates are selected (the grater), and my country's going to be sliced, diced and julienned by whichever party takes control (what'll be left under the grater).
Am I the only one that feels this way about Juanny Mac and the Dali Bama?

W Wires Whitehouse For DishTV

Tired of the same old CSPAN and HeadlineNews, G.W. decided to take matters into his own hands today and personally wired the "big house" for 400 channels of sweet, clear, digital signal. Happily, Vlad the Imbiber and his wife were in town and after providing G.W. and Laura advice on the best products to install, the foursome settled in for a "The Girls Next Door" marathon.

Public Service Announcement

You have to hope that this study is flawed, but the evidence seems irrefutable. Several months ago, scientists at Heidelberger's Annual Human Reproduction Conference suggested that the results of recent analysis revealed the presence of female hormones in beer, and suggested that men should take a look at their beer consumption. The theory was that drinking beer makes men either turn into women, or at least take on decidedly feminine characteristics.

To test the theory, 100 men were each forced (yeah, right! - ed) a six-pack each of various brands within a one-hour period. It was then observed that 100% of the men gained weight, failed to think rationally, talked excessively without making any sense, became overly emotional, argued over whatever crossed their minds, lost their ability to drive, found they had to sit while urinating, could no longer perform sexually, and simply refused to apologize when wrong.

No further testing is planned.

Metaphor For Choices In November

Truth in advertising regulations have kicked in, campers. According to a lawsuit ol' Subby filed today, the Republican, Democrat, Green AND Libertarian Parties must all use this photo, this and ONLY this photo when posting any type of print advertisement for the candidate they are foisting on the American voting public. I don't have high hopes of reaching many voters though, since they are more concerned with Britney's emotional state or the latest Dancing With The Stars episode...

Remember Tiger Beat Magazine?

I got this from Army of Mom and found it funny reading her answers. My family passes these "Getting To Know You" surveys around all the time, so here are my answers to AoM's survey.

AoM said...
"can't even remember where I got this magazine, but it is pretty interesting. Called "Movies Rock" thre is a little Q&A on the back page with Bill Murray. The author resurrects a 1967 Tiger Beat interview with The Monkees. They posed the same questions to Murray. I'm going to give it a try:"

How would your mother describe you in one word? Brat*
*My mother has called me that for as long as I can remember whenever I pull one on her.

What is your favorite flower? Don't really think about them that way, but I enjoy buying a bouquet of carnations my wife on my way home from work, especially when there is no reason to get them. They cheer up the room when she puts them out.

What is the most insane question you've ever been asked? "Have you ever made an escape from your submarine at sea?"

What word in the language do you wish you had invented? ludicrous (and I tend to use it too frequently as well.)

Where would you like to live? Anywhere that doesn't have hurricanes, tornados, excessive heat or cold but a nice change of seasons, low cost of living and no property or income taxes.

What is the first quote that comes to your mind? "Nothing is too hard for the man that doesn't have to do it." (Scott Adams, creator of Dilbert)

What animal best describes the kind of (girl) you'd be interested in? Golden Retriever: smart, loyal, beautiful, and easily trainable to do tricks of my choosing

What do you miss about your childhood? The total cluelessness of the reality of having to pay bills.

If you could change your name, what would you change it to? I'm named after my dad and my great grandfather, both of whom I respect, admire and most importantly like, so I wouldn't change it.

What is the main fault in your character? I don't suffer idiots well.

What is your favorite historical character? Hard to say, probably either Thomas Edison or Benjamin Franklin

Describe how you kiss in one word? Frequently?

What in the world do you least desire? US Constitutional rights for non-US citizens

Finish this sentence, "Happiness is a thing called ..."family"

(Had to agree with you on the last one, AoM, but you were dead wrong on the spinach lasagne...)

What If They Gave A Protest And Nobody Came?

Anti-War activist and potential Obamessiah running mate, Abby Hofman, was less than pleased with the turnout for his "Bush and Cheney Lied, Innocent People Fried;" A Protest Demonstration Extravaganza On The Mall. Said Abby; "What the #*$^ is wrong with the $)*$%^@ younger $&*#(!* generation these days? They don't show any &*%#(^# commitment to a cause and don't *#&^!*# protest like their %#@(^)^ parents did against 'Nam back in the 60's... now THOSE were protests!"

When reached for comment, Sen. (soon to be President for Life) Obamessiah simply stated that "...wasn't the Abby Hoffman I knew."

Politics 101

Socialism: You have two cows. You keep one and give one to your neighbor.

Communism: You have two cows. The government takes them both and provides you with milk.

Fascism: You have two cows. The government takes them and sells you the milk.

Bureaucracy: You have two cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for the milk, and then pours it down the drain.

Capitalism: You have two cows. You sell one and buy a bull.

Corporate: You have two cows. You sell one, force the other to produce the milk of four cows and then act surprised when it drops dead.

Democracy: You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point that you must sell them both in order to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow which was a gift from your government.

Social Justice: You have two cows. You are disparaged for your overconsumption, so one cow is taken from you and given to the foreigner who has since emigrated here.

Environmentalism: You are strongly advised to lower consumption so that millions more of the world's oppressed can come to America for a better life. And forget cows. You will eat tofu and be damn grateful for it, if you know what's good for you.

What A Babe!

From the catacombs of all things Jihadi - we present the one, the only, Iranian First Babe - Mrs. MuchPoohed Imadumbjihadi "her"self in all "her" resplendent glory. Sources close to the "big" man (picture above is lifesized) himself suggested that "she" wears the burqha not so much because of religious dictates, but to hide the size of "her" Adam's apple and the quantity of facial and other body hair "she" sports. Your ol' pal Subby ain't planning on ever getting close enough to do a package check on "her" because I hate the smell of used camel. If any of you do, let me know what you find...

And Winner Is...

Interesting choice of pic the AP used for the official declaration of the winning Dem candidate is. Remember the Huckabee hullabaloo over a cross-shaped bookshelf in the background of his Christmas season ad? Seems to ol' Subby that they doth protest too much. The Obamessiah has been anointed by the msm from the very beginning, no vetting of statements, total pass on any speaking or factual blunders, the shooshing of any nay-sayers and a righteous indignation at any challenge to their collective ethical standpoint. The only thing that made it the least entertaining was that the Kkklinton machine got to feel their ire for having the audacity to continue to run after they had selected Barry O and his "I'm proud of Amerikkka for the first time in my adult life" wife as the next Jack and Jackie Kennedy for the nation.
As me buddy Jonathan says: "Nope, no liberal media bias!"

Way To Go, Wings!

Heckuva series. If that didn't make you a fan of hockey, then you didn't watch.
Valient effort by the young guns of Pittsburg - Great, Great team in Detroit.
Some great officiating (placement of the Ref on the Zetterburg goal that squirted in when Fleury sat on it) and some highly questionable calls (both goalie interference calls in game 6).
Some heartbraking ringers off the pipes by both teams. Awesome hit after hit by both teams. Some lucky bounces for both teams. Some UNlucky bounces for both teams. Amazing goalie play for both teams (Ozzie's shut outs in games 1 and 2, Fleury's effective shutout in all 3 overtimes in game 6). Both team's offensive superstars being held mostly in check by stupendous defensive play. And a few historic firsts (first Newfoundland pro to lift the cup - Cleary, and first European Captain to lift the Cup - Lidstrom).
Great, great series. And now, I expect AoM to live up to the bet she dodged after her team went down a couple games and post an "Ode to the Red Wings, Stanley Cup Champs" on her web site!

Green Party Planking

The Green Party announced it's first platform plank today. Coming as no shock to anyone, and believing, wholeheartedly, in the Church of the Goracle, the alternative group endorsed a position that "We reject the crass commercialism on which the United States is founded and require a wholesale elimination of the manufacturing base. We promise to revert to a feudalistic state of lords and serfs and require a return to an agrarian society."

Grey Panthers Take Over Border Security

Concerned senior citizen's groups have taken the Minuteman project to heart and committed themselves to it as a group for border security. Said Rupert J.

We're gonna stop at least a few, as long as our ammo holds up here at El Alamein. INCOMING! Blasted Germans..."

Metaphor For The 2008 Presidential Election

And for you liberals, the horse represents the choices given TO us by the political parties, and the cowboy represents the US voting public. A good choice since the cowboy tends to pick himself up, dust himself off, and return to the chores of life regardless of the problems he runs into.

Random Thought on the Dems

No joke, just a serious question.

In 2000, the Dems filed lawsuits in Florida to change the election laws in the state DURING the count, recount and re-recount fiasco. It failed, but set the stage for what happened yesterday with the DNC re-deciding (after the fact) that the "play by our rules or your votes don't count" would be given a "do-over."

The Obamessiah was given a percentage of the delegates from Michigan even though he had not been on the ballot. Would one of you Democrat loyalists give me a straight answer on how this is "ensuring every vote counts?" By my logic:
1. It doesn't add up to letting the popular vote stand on its own.
2. Gives the appearance that Obama is the chosen candidate regardless of the overall popular vote (opposite of what they claimed in 2000).
3. Rewards these two states for thumbing their collective noses at the rules committee and proceeding with the non-sanctioned votes in the first place.
4. Perhaps makes them count MORE by bringing them to the table when everything is in an uproar and brings additional scrutiny (at least by non-msm avenues) to the reversal of the DNC position on total popular vote vs electoral vote.
5. Reinforces (at least in non-msm and non-Dem voters eyes) the image of the DNC changing rules after an election takes place to make things work in their favor.

So, basically, I'm asking WTF?

1 More for Cup Number 11

Hockey gets no respect -
Jiri Hudler got the game winner last night with a no-look, back-to-the-net, top-shelf, back-hander in about a 4 inch gap between Fleury and the near-side post. Does ESPN even select it for the "top ten" plays of the day? No. Instead we get the same-old, same-old home runs and diving catches. Don't get me wrong; I love both playing (well, did) and watching baseball and the plays were all good, but even a non-sportsman would have been left incredulous by that Hudler goal. Meh!
That was visually spectacular, but for a hockey fan like ol' Subby, the job that Zetterburg did on the Penguins' all-star line when they had a 5 on 3 advantage? That was a spec-freakin'-TACular job of shutting down a team. Osgood was OzGREAT and the total team effort was superb.
One more win and the Wings cap off a phenomenal season with Lord Stanley's Cup for the 11th time.

Penguins? We shall see. It looks to be a very good series with 2 relatively evenly-matched teams. The Wings definitely have the experience advantage, but the young guns on the Pens team should rise to the level of the opponent like they've been doing throughout the Eastern Conf finals.

The US has added the polar bear to the officially sanctioned list of "endangered species" despite a continuously rising population of the predator.

A Different Kind of "Truth Video"

Interesting video compilation of a variety of Democrat leaders discussing terrorists, their organizations, and a specific regime that supports them. This is video of them, speaking their own words (and one would assume their own thoughts, however hazardous it is to assume that these individuals think...), and contradicting everything they say now.

Since truth tends to be anathema to most leftists, I don't expect any response, but I do ask one of them to answer this question:

Tell me again how this is "Bush's War" and that "Bush lied - people died?"

By the way, if you are a miscreant troll, you need not respond. I truly would like to get a well reasoned, properly thought out response.

Barry O. Lays Out His US Economic Strategy

Front-running Democrat Party presidential hopeful Ballsack Osamabama has finally laid out the economic strategy he plans to inflict on the US '...once I am elected President for Life by the Bible-clinging, gun-toting, rubes of this pitiful nation.' As a public service, ol' Subby has reduced the political-double-speak that surrounded the core message for you. Summed up in the fewest words possible, B.O. said;
"I'm... going to... tax... you... for every... penny... you... own... or earn."
Funny how his answer to every problem is to either discuss things with terrorists or add a new tax -
Is Iran threatening to nuc Israel and the US? 'Unlike any before me, MY administration will sit down over tea and falafel and get them to change their minds through better speaking points.'
Are your oil prices too high, Bunky? 'MY administration will tax the manufacturers!'

Teddy the Whale Goes For A Summer Cruise

Obamasama Announces DHS Secretary Pick

Barry Obamasama has begun releasing his notional picks for Cabinet posts. Starting with Louis Farrikhan as his running mate, duh!, he has also announced he will ask John Edwards to be his Attorney General and to lead the vetting process for all nominees. In spite of the "honor" bestowed on the Silky Pony, B.O. has a few picks already slated:
- Department of Homeland Security Secretary will go to Wild Bill Ayers for his staunch support of America.
- Secretary of Defense will go to Cindy Sheehag because she 'really knows the military structure, and aligns so well with my support of the armed forces.'
- A surprise move of awarding Secretary of State to Rev. Jeremiah Wright following his previous public denouncement of his beliefs indicates that B.O. is operating from a personal feeling that he is firmly in the position of power now, and no longer needs to pretend to care what the rabble think.
- Although not a Cabinet level position, Teddy the Whale will be rewarded for his loyalty with the leadership of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. (Yes, that's the way the Whale wants its name shown going forward...)
Other names and positions are pending the Silky Pony focus group's investigations and recommendations.
Stay tuned to Staight Board for additional breaking news.

In An Absolut World - Truth In Advertising

For those who partake, might I be so bold as to suggest another brand than Absolut? They have taken to being an "agent for change" vice trying to sell their vodka. Recent advertisements include posting the map ad (photo-shopped to a more reasonable position above) that showed Mexico going up to about Washington/Oregon/Idaho and an ad targeted to the homosexual community that addresses the perfect "member." Whatever happened to "selling the product" vice trying to engineer social change?
Interesting side-note; the map of Mexico ad was "only going to be used in Mexico" according to Absolut spokesmen. Question raised in ol' Subby's mind was "If so, why is 'In An Absolut World' printed so boldly in English?"

A "Right To Health Care?"

Fantastic article by Neal Boortz on the topic at


"A typical column runs some 800 words.
For some subjects, that’s far too many. One case in point: your “right” to health care.
Therefore, you have no “right” to health care.
Deal with it.
Point made in only 200 words. That’s short and sweet."

What IS A "Billion?"

A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, but one advertising agency did a good job of putting that figure into some perspective in one of its releases:
1 - A billion seconds ago it was 1959.
2 - A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.
3 - A billion hours ago our ancestors were living in the Stone Age.
4 - A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.
5 - A billion dollars ago was ONLY 8 hours and 20 minutes at the rate our government is spending it!

While this thought is still fresh in your brain, let's take a look at New Orleans.

It's amazing what you can learn with some simple division. Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (Dem, of course) is presently asking the Congress for $250 BILLION to rebuild New Orleans.

Interesting number, but what does it mean?

Let's break it down into more personal impact, shall we?
A - If you are one of 484, 674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman, child), then you would get $516 , 528. Not too shabby.
B - If you have one of the 188, 251 homes in New Orleans, you get $1, 329, 787. Getting better, isn't it?
C - If you are a family of four, your family gets $2, 066, 012.

Washington , D.C .. HELLO!!! ... Are all your freakin calculators broken?!?

So, the next time you hear a politician use the word 'billion' in a casual manner, think about whether you want him/her spending YOUR tax money. And it doesn't matter which party she/he belongs to - earmarks and pork are doled out collectively by all of them.
