Now the DSA no longer publishes the list - I guess they figured out it could be problematic for their comrades, err, members. But outside of Bernie Sanders, who has moved on to the Senate, and their blatant socialist behavior, who would have known that the "Who's Who" of committee memberships, let alone the Speakeress of the House, would be on the list! So what do DSA members espouse? Well, they have their seven pillars:
And who, you might ask is the DSA affiliated with? Why that would be the Socialist International. And what, I hear you ask in an increasingly exasperated tone, do THEY believe? Well, they are right out there in the open...read all about it on their website. Well, if you don't want to spend the time, you can read the abridged version - it's called the "Obama website."
The drift continues, the current carrying us to the edge of the abyss.

Paul Weyrich passed away this morning and he will be missed. The founder of the Heritage Foundation, he was a guiding light in the conservative movement for the last twenty years. Paul was only 66, but suffered from complications due to a spinal cord injury 12 years ago. He is in a better place now.

In the sermon posted on an Islamic website, he said: "In the world today many Muslims, especially those residing in western countries, are exposed to the evil celebration Christmas. Many take part in the festival celebrations by having Christmas turkey dinners.Decorating the house, purchasing Christmas trees or having Christmas turkey meals are completely prohibited by Allah. Many still practise this corrupt celebration as a remembrance of the birth of Jesus. How can a Muslim possibly approve or participate in such a practice that bases itself on the notion Allah has an offspring? The very concept of Christmas contradicts and conflicts with the foundation of Islam. Every Muslim has a responsibility to protect his family from the misguidance of Christmas, because its observance will lead to hellfire. Protect your Paradise from being taken away – protect yourself and your family from Christmas."
No, this is about hate and isolation. The more these mullahs can keep their flock away from Christians and Jews in Western countries, the easier it is to convince them that those same Christians and Jews hate them. It is the pathway to jihad. Note to Anjem - if you hate our customs so much, go back to Saudi Arabia or Egypt or whatever dustbin you came from and leave us alone. Thank God this buffoon lives in England and not over here...Brits, wake up!

At the root of this is the struggle for the heart and soul of the Democrat party which we scribed about back before the election. It is the battle between the Daley Machine united with the Kennedy Clan versus the Clinton "New" Path of Thuggery. The Obama appointments are nothing more than the Chicago way of trying to buy the silence out of potential enemies.
Kudos to Bob Corker from our fair state for standing up to the UAW thugs. Pity he wasn't tipped off that the deal was in the works over at the White House. Chrysler has already been bailed out three times - once by us - remember Iacocca and the K-car? Once by the Germans...they got rid of it for less than what they paid just to be done with the headache. And most recently by private capital - umm, that was right before the bottom fell out. Who's next? The US taxpayer...again. This is a failed business model and we need to let it die. Bankruptcy does not mean that everything gets shuttered and vines grow through the assembly line...it probably DOES mean that union contracts will get re-worked. Let's get about it...the sooner the better!

Though she is being hailed as a revolutionary who helped usher in the "Free Love" nonsense of the 1960's, in reality, she was a tragic figure. She was married and divorced, pursued an acting career on the West Coast and then a modeling career on the East Coast. It was there that a photographer told her to comb her bangs forward to compensate for her high forehead and the "Bettie Page look" was born. When asked about her iconic status as a high priestess of sexual liberation, she responded:
"I was not trying to be shocking, or to be a pioneer. I wasn’t trying to change society, or to be ahead of my time. I didn’t think of myself as liberated, and I don’t believe that I did anything important. I was just myself. I didn’t know any other way to be, or any other way to live."
She was a free spirit and a survivor. Later in life she became a born-again Christian. She said of herself that she was "penniless and infamous." For all the naughtiness, I suspect she was a good person and would be horrified at what is shown on the front covers of magazines and in prime-time TV now.
Despite the Playboy spreads and the Catwoman bondage shots, I like to remember her with this picture:
I am pretty sure that's the Gulf Coast of Florida in the background. The coast of my boyhood before they built the hell out of it. And that's a sandbar she's standing on...probably had been looking for sand dollars. She is full of life, happy to be here. That is how we should remember her.

Not since Harry Truman nationalized the steel mills in 1952 (mercifully overturned by the Supreme Court) have we seen this kind of brazen takeover by government. It would be bad enough to have happen under Obama - but where the hell is Bush? Where, other than Bob Corker in the Senate, is the opposition. For God's sake man, grow a pair!

This little puppy is going to be available on DVD later this week...I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it already. It is an allegory of the war on terror with George Bush as Batman and the jihadis as the Joker. Even down to the scene of Batman standing on the wreckage of a bombed building it's phenomenal. It has the angst over whether to torture or not...it's got rendition...it even has the public turning against the hero and wanting to negotiate and appease the bad guy. Probably accidental on Hollywood's part, but make sure you see it and let me know.
"You either die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become a villain." -Harvey Dent
My guess/hope is this: Barry, not unlike the last Dem to occupy the White House, (occupation of the White House - could be a theme there...) has no core principles. This is good news for those of us on the Right who thought that on the basis of his associations, the guy was damned near a Marxist. You sit in a couple of those threat briefings and it'll make those campaign promises go right out the door. B.O. probably feels like the terrier that caught the bus right now...he needs adult leadership around him.

China Launches First Willing Manned Mission Into Space
This is stunning.
Total Democratic Presidential Votes Since 1932: 745,407,082
Total Republican Presidential Votes Since 1932: 745,297,123
Total Third-Party Presidential Votes Since 1932: 66,061,486
How's that for parity? That's a difference of 109,959 votes out of over 1.5 billion cast.

Here's the photo:
I mean look at these guys! This is embarrassing!! The guy on the left, probably some dillwad attorney trying to look tough...next in is Colonel Potter with a comb over - oh, that's Mr. Union Man, Gettelfinger...then comes Mulally from Ford who looks like someone just pulled a new puppy out to show him...then comes Nardelli from Chrysler who has the "Why am I here when I could have these clowns whacked" look...
I officially hate the bailout. To watch these guys with straight faces tell Congress that they will do anything that Congress wants them to do is like watching some junkies beg for methadone. It's downright unseemly. Mulally was right, one of either GM or Chrysler is going to fail and fail catastrophically. That's what happens in capitalism. Then Ford or the other survivor, or a foreign manufacturer buys the production capacity, the fat gets trimmed and off we go again. The alternative is the Democratic nationalization of auto production...this is what you will end up with:
That little beauty was built by the Soviets from 1940 something to 1980 something...it's the Zaz! Maybe Congressman Waxman will demand that the fuel efficient models have a sporty touch, so they can add a spoiler! Yessir, yessir...here you are sir:
How about a convertible with extra safety bumpers and ADA step up ladder? You got it:
We have truly fallen down the rabbit hole. The free market is dying before our eyes and the same clowns that negotiated those great deals with the Unions and awarded themselves huge bonuses are now going to get to give monthly term papers to Congress. We're doomed.
This is a little creepy - why is the weird monkey dude putting the mechanical mouse in his pocket? "Stop it Corky! err, Kenny!" But you know if this kept us up on Christmas Eve, there was always the soothing sounds of the Gantvoort Twins! What's that? You don't remember the Gantvoort Twins?? Here's a refresher:
That's a smackin' good lookin' pair there! What is that device that is between them, a disco sawz-all?
If you were still a little disturbed that Kenny and Creepy were going to come crawling out of the closet while you waited on Rudolf and the boys, you could always put the Mom and Dads on for a spin:
I don't detect a single natural fiber on that crew! Gotta have a pair of patten leather white bucs to go with the powder blue leisure suit!
But if this is what messed us up, what does the following bode for Generation X:

An impressive thing about India is the way in which it has almost as many Muslim citizens, who live with greater prospects of peace and prosperity, as does Pakistan. This comity and integration is one of the many targets of the suicide killers, and it is another reason why firm, warm solidarity with India is the most pressing need of the present hour.
Give it a read, you won't regret it.

No that doesn't work...let's try again.
URGENT: A party of faith-enraged Buddhists swept through the downtown area of Islamabad today shooting randomly at late-afternoon commuters. They then set off explosives and captured numerous hostages at the posh Intercontinental Hotel. They singled out Muslims and Hindus screaming "Buddha is the man..."
No that doesn't work...let's try again.
You get the point. The entire world of faith had better wake up to the fact that Muslim extremists offer two choices: convert or die. And on option two, they are perfectly happy to accommodate. It is a sad day in India today. Rumbler has spent time in this beautiful country when Rumbler's parents lived in New Delhi. They are a wonderful people and we weep with them today as they bury their (and our) dead.
This is what the "religion of peace" did to the Mumbai train station:
This is what they did to the Taj Mahal Hotel where Rumbler's parents used to stay:
There can be no peace until Muslims worldwide condemn these acts of hatred and begin the long, hard work to change their religion from within. We of other faiths can help this process along if we would drop the pretext that they are really a peaceful religion and it's just a few bad apples...blah, blah, blah. Let's call it for what it is, a bloodthirsty cult that is destroying the very fabric of civilization in the hope of achieving a worldwide caliphate. The Koran is specific in what Muslims must do...let's stop kidding ourselves. Until Muslims renounce the violent teachings of their own book, we cannot live alongside them. They need to be isolated and eliminated if they will not change. When will the world say "enough?"

Being president is about control, and tell me who ever controlled Bill or Hillary Clinton. They can't control each other. ... I think it's because Warren Buffett and Paul Volcker and others have convinced Obama, 'You're going to have to focus like a laser on the economy. That's issue Number One. And give Hillary and Bill the world.' ... I think people are fantasizing or smoking something if they think Joe Biden's going to call Hillary Clinton up and say, 'This is what we want you to do.'
Onlooker: They wouldn't do that!
Rumbler: Oh yes they will!
They have. Read about it here.
Well, the good news is it couldn't happen here...
Onlooker: Umm, it couldn't happen here...could it?
Rumbler: Oh yes it can!
They will try. Read about it here.

Look folks - at some point we are going to have to face the $99.2 TRILLION shortfall in Social Security and Medicaid. We can't print our way out of it...I doubt we can grow our way out. The only hope is for an honest, sober assessment of the situation and a realistic plan to scale entitlements back. Otherwise we are doomed to the ash heap. Now would be a good time to do it too...the economy's in the tank, the news every day is bad...one good dose of cod-liver oil reality and let's get on with it!
That Mr. Obama had been sent by history to assuage the insecurities of the middle class with a "New" New Deal was always a tad detached from reality anyway. The reason is those giant legacies of existing New Dealism known as Social Security and Medicare, about which he was careful to say nothing intelligible during the campaign. These programs worked for a while too, but now their expected revenues are (in present value) about $99.2 trillion short of the expected outlays required to assure present and future workers their promised comfort in retirement.
Then again, Mr. Obama did say something in his campaign about tax rebates for all these payroll taxpayers. He also said something about government matching contributions to incentivize today's low- and middle-income workers to save for their own retirement.
Voilà, personal accounts funded by payroll-tax givebacks -- strangely similar to the solution our current president promoted to help workers escape the impending insolvency of the government retirement programs. Mr. Obama envisioned himself extending FDR's work. He may end up finishing George Bush's.

OMG! Just OMG! We are hosed.
Here are the results of the Zogby poll:
512 Obama Voters 11/13/08-11/15/08 MOE +/- 4.4 points
97.1% High School Graduate or higher, 55% College Graduates
Results to 12 simple Multiple Choice Questions
57.4% could NOT correctly say which party controls congress (50/50 shot just by guessing)
81.8% could NOT correctly say Joe Biden quit a previous campaign because of plagiarism (25% chance by guessing)
82.6% could NOT correctly say that Barack Obama won his first election by getting opponents kicked off the ballot (25% chance by guessing)
88.4% could NOT correctly say that Obama said his policies would likely bankrupt the coal industry and make energy rates skyrocket (25% chance by guessing)
56.1% could NOT correctly say Obama started his political career at the home of two former members of the Weather Underground (25% chance by guessing).
Only 13.7% failed to identify Sarah Palin as the person on which their party spent $150,000 in clothes
Only 6.2% failed to identify Palin as the one with a pregnant teenage daughter
And 86.9 % thought that Palin said that she could see Russia from her "house," even though that was Tina Fey who said that!!
Only 2.4% got at least 11 correct.
Only .5% got all of them correct. (And we "gave" one answer that was technically not Palin, but actually Tina Fey)
Folks this is very serious. The fate of the Republic depends upon a well informed populace. We got sold a brand...the new Coke! We will pay for it good and hard.
And she's only 4'11" - but she is spot on. Enough with hyphenated Americans. We conservatives have to hone the message of economic liberty and social responsibility. Done correctly and packaged in the right medium, landslides await.
From our bulging "The Hispanic vote doesn't frickin' matter, you idiots" file
I can't believe the National Review let this get posted:
According to the usual suspects, the benchmark in garnering Hispanic votes for Republicans is Bush's 40 percent showing in 2004. So what would have happened if McCain had matched Bush's performance, instead of the 31 percent he actually got? Based on CNN's exit polls, McCain still would have lost Nevada, Colorado, Florida, New Mexico, Ohio, Pennsylvania, not to mention, say, California and New Jersey. Conversely, even if Obama had won 90 percent of the Hispanic vote in Texas, instead of 63 percent, he still would have lost the state. With the possible exception of North Carolina, where the results were close but the number of Hispanic voters is too small to register in the exit poll, there doesn't seem to be a single state where the Hispanic vote was critical to the outcome.
Karl Rove & Co., insist that Mexican immigrants are social conservatives and therefore a natural fit with the Republican party. But blacks are social conservatives too, contrary to what this guy says, and they vote Democrat.
What's more: Mexicans have no knowledge of American history, and bring with them a culture of systemic corruption, crime, illiteracy, animal abuse, drunk driving and more. Please get back to me with the names of 10 Mexican Nobel Prize winners. All on top of not speaking English.
Importing even more criminal illiterate future Democrats as a permanent slave underclass is the problem, not the solution.
We really are a recent arrival...it's no party, but if we don't see it through to conclusion, the guests will be back on our shores and make 9/11 look like a day at Coney Island.

A brilliant mind no longer whinnying with us.
Look folks, it's all wrong, dreadfully wrong. But let's call it evenly on both sides. If a gang of whites beats up a black man or a Latino - that's a hate crime. Ditto if the Crips murder a young white Marine (who happened to be married to a black woman). If gays are storming churches and desecrating sacred services, that's a hate crime. Ditto if someon takes a tire wrench to a cross-dresser. The reality is this - we don't need "hate crime legislation." What we need is sanity on the bench that punishes wrong doing for what it is, not because the victims have a different tone to their skin or don't have the same sexual preferences. Violence to another human being is hatred, unless it is justified in self defense. Period.
Grab your ankles folks!

P.S. Note the cute peace sign with the "O" in his "signature" this dude was warped early.
Friday, November 14, 2008
“1.) The reason why you won the presidency is not because the Americans suddenly found out that they should not be racist, it is because of the many mistakes that the Bush administration fell under which didn’t leave for the American citizen any room, not even for a second to think about keeping that administration and the least proof for this is the large numbers of votes against them.”
“2.) Your campaign promises were built on change and the time for it has come, and we say with that the time has come- the destruction that the previous administration caused for our country from killings, displacement, civil war and racism- has damaged your reputation as American people and it damaged elements of a nation that did not attack you by your own recognition andOK, they agree with Barry about change, they agree with Barry that American troops caused "killings, civil war racism etc." They agree with Barry that we are basically very bad because we invaded poor old innocent Iraq and that a hasty withdrawal will restore us to the lofty heights the Arab world has always held us in. Oh wait, they never have...oh, never mind. And of course, they agree that "reason and logic" would prevail - hit Barry O where he likes to be flattered!
therefore we ask for change and do not listen to those who tell you that a withdrawal from Iraq is a defeat. We say to you that a withdrawal will mean a triumph of reason and logic.”
“3.) The vast number of people who have voted for you means that you can take your actions with courage. The disarray of those before you hurt the American people before anyone else, Allah(SWT) has told us in his righteous book that he created man to get to know each other not for one to kill the other: ‘O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous
of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things).’”
Barry probably knows these verses from his time in Indonesia, but let's see...man is not supposed to kill one another, we're supposed to all get along (does this apply to the Jews?) and Barry...party on dude, you got a mandate! Certified by Islamic Jihad!
“4.) We are a country known for its courage and generosity and our good treatment to strangers. Whoever is good to us we are good to him more than he is good to us, and whoever attacks us he will find from us no mercy, so what do you think we will do to an invader who tampered with our religion and our country, its destiny, security and unity?”
OK, so freeing you assclowns from a sadistic murderous bastard like Sadam, who was on track to get you all killed, wasn't good enough? But don't worry, you will have a sympathetic ear after 1/20/09!
“5.) To surround our countries security by making agreements with others around us to accomplish your interests and their interests at the expense of the interests of our people will have serious consequences. It is up to you not to try this and not to solve your problems with others at our expense and you should understand this.”Umm, Jihad Boy, Barry wants to talk to the animals, babes! You two are not going to see eye to eye on this, but so far, 4 out of 5 ain't bad.
“6.) We will be flexible in dealing with your withdrawal but it must not be as part of a security deal with parties that are traitors or a made up government. You must correct your mistakes and work with courage to pay compensation to all those who you have destroyed, their families or their house or their psychology. And you must release all those you have as prisoners until the last Iraqi of them, and you must order the sectarian government to release all its prisoners and to return the balance of security to Iraq. Without this we will not think that you will be coming with theDon't worry Barry, we've got your Six! Go ahead, withdraw, give us all our crazies back and we will take care of you. That awful sectarian government needs a few more things to do, Barry, so make sure you release the insane-violent ones first.
change that you have promised, and if you do this you will be written down in history as the courageous one.”
“And finally we in the resistance are staying on our promise to liberate our country and we will not tear from this, the history of our grandparents is the best witness and we will be the best next of kin to that kin in protecting the sanctity of our nation.”You kidders, you saved the best for last! You and Barry agree to get the only thing that's keeping you crazies from ruling the joint out of the way and THEN you get to go on with the insurgency so you can make Grandpa proud. What a great deal!
You know the weird part of this is how much of this letter sounds like the Democrat party campaign message on Iraq.
Here's my answer:

- Now that Official Washington needs to take a breath from All-Obama-All-the-Time it has turned its attention to what will become of the Republican Party; or, more precisely who will be the New Face of the Republican Party?
- I don't know. Here's a couple of things I do know.
- Four years ago - a week after George W. Bush defeated John Kerry no one thought that Barack Obama was the New Face of the Democratic Party. If anyone was, it was Hillary Rodham Clinton's mug.
- How'd that work out?
- Here is the second thing I know. At noon on January 20, 2009 when President-elect Obama officially loses the hyphenated title, every Republican will understand how every Democrat felt exactly eight years earlier - to the second. That was when George W. Bush was sworn in for his first term joining a House of Representatives led by Speaker Dennis Hastert and a Senate led by Majority Leader Trent Lott.
- Republicans controlled everything. Democrats - especially overweight Hollywood actors - loudly announced they were leaving the country. It was the era of the PERMANENT REPUBLICAN MAJORITY!
- How'd that work out?
One greatly overlooked example of this phenom was during the election when Barry O's home state of Hawaii quickly abandoned the idea of state mandated universal healthcare for children. We learned the lesson several years ago in Tennessee. If you set the government up to provide the best possible health insurance at no cost, guess what? Everyone that can afford health insurance dumps their policy and takes the freebie. People are not "greedy," as Big O would suggest, they are just rational.

Why if it isn't our old flag standin', Pentagon bombin', Barry pallin' friend Bill Ayers! Popped up on the grid on November 7:
There it is in a nutshell - no pun intended. The Alinsky tactics of organization - trying to turn the divergent wings of the Donk party into a single force:
Maybe we could welcome our current situation—torn by another illegal war, as it was in the ’60s—as an opportunity to search for the new.
Perhaps we might think of ourselves not as passive consumers of politics but as fully mobilized political actors. Perhaps we might think of our various efforts now, as we did then, as more than a single campaign, but rather as our movement-in-the-making.
We might find hope in the growth of opposition to war and occupation worldwide. Or we might be inspired by the growing movements for reparations and prison abolition, or the rising immigrant rights movement and the stirrings of working people everywhere, or by gay and lesbian and transgender people courageously pressing for full recognition.
- "opposition to war and occupation." Mr. Ayers, this nation has only occupied countries for good cause - think Germany, Japan and now Iraq. There is a BIG difference between that type of occupation, which is temporary and what China has done to Tibet.
-"movements for reparations and prison abolition." I have posted about my concerns of a reparations movement coming with O standing by the tiller ("at the helm" doesn't work for him). I had not heard that we need to empty the prisons. Dangit, it's Sunday - I'll have to wait for tomorrow to get more ammo!
-"immigrants rights" Billy, we are a nation of immigrants - we would like to keep the process legal and not be overrun. But then, you obviously hate America and all it stands for so anything that leads to ruin is OK.
-"stirrings of working people everywhere." Comrade Bill! To the barricades!!
-"gay lesbian and transgender..." So only when we violate all our morals and gladly allow gay marriage, transgender and animal marriage will we finally achieve social nirvana?
This is why Barry O and the boys had to keep a wrap on this assklown till after the Election...but now, he's baaack!
You can read the whole article here, if you have the stomach for it. Titling his piece with a line from the Grateful Dead song, Truckin', really steams me too.
- Expand Corporation for National and Community Service: Obama and Biden will expand AmeriCorps from 75,000 slots today to 250,000 and they will focus this expansion on addressing the great challenges facing the nation. They will establish a Classroom Corps to help teachers and students, with a priority placed on underserved schools; a Health Corps to improve public health outreach; a Clean Energy Corps to conduct weatherization and renewable energy projects; a Veterans Corps to assist veterans at hospitals, nursing homes and homeless shelters; and a Homeland Security Corps to help communities plan, prepare for and respond to emergencies.
- Engage Retiring Americans in Service on a Large Scale: Older Americans have a wide range of skills and knowledge to contribute. Obama and Biden will expand and improve programs that connect individuals over the age of 55 to quality volunteer opportunities. (Barry - why no "corps" here?)
- Expand the Peace Corps: Obama and Biden will double the Peace Corps to 16,000 by 2011. They will work with the leaders of other countries to build an international network of overseas volunteers so that Americans work side-by-side with volunteers from other countries.
Hezbollah, CAIR and Hamas are some of the other prominent
