Watch And Learn What Egypt Can Teach Us

See how ineffective an unarmed populous is against an oppressive government’s troops?  Think about that the next time you are declaring your desire to have us surrender ANY of the 2nd Amendment for the children. 

I’m not calling for violence.  I’m only saying that if the sheep are disarmed; who can prevent the sheep dog and the wolf from teaming up?

Well That Sucked

Stayed away from the interwebs to keep from finding out the results of the last Top Shot that I just caught “On Demand”…

Someone let me know when that cheese d**k, Adam is off the show and I might tune back in. 

That’s all I have to say about that.

July 4th… Just Couldn’t Feel The Love.

Job taking all the joy out of writing.  I don’t have much time to comment on anything.  A lot has happened in the past several weeks, but then again, a lot of smarter people than I have been out there commenting on these things… so nu?

I have only one comment on the recently past Independence Day.  I sat in Mass on Saturday listening to the opening and closing hymns that thundered about America and spacious skies and God… And you know all I could think was, “Hog wash.” 

Don’t get me wrong, I love this country.  I think The USA was the best shot humanity had for something approaching true justice and freedom.  But I just can’t shake the feeling that possibility died a long time ago.  I just feel like I’m watching an aging actor or actress who’s trading on the image of what they once were, but after too many face lifts, too many affairs, and too many times believing their own press clippings, just can’t bring the thrill to the performance that they once did. 

Or maybe it’s that old outfielder who just can’t quite cover the corners like he used to and can’t quite get to that low outside fast ball because of too many beers.  He can still rock the fences with a tape measure job if you put one in his wheelhouse, but his time as the unbeatable threat is gone.  He could probably get a few more years if he really tried, but he stopped trying when the love of the game was traded for appearances on ESPN and interviews in SI. 

I don’t mean to be a cynic.  I’m just doing the math and don’t see a way out that doesn’t involve a miracle.  I see two parties who are either completely miscalculating or willfully misinterpreting the masses.  I see 40% of the country being an active hindrance to change, not just a dead weight.  I see people who should be working together, bickering even in victory.  I see the elites snickering into their martinis, pinky extended, self satisfied that they have tied up most of the avenues to power and can prevent meaningful reforms.  Reforms that could cost them power. 

Maybe it’s because I talk to too many people in a day and listen to how deluded they are.  I talk to too many idiots on the left who can’t understand why Socialism is a bad thing.  I talk to too many idiots on the right who still think that truth alone will win the day.  I talk to too many Democrats and Republicans who don’t get just how f’ed up our Economy is and how just plain scary the math looks.  Feh!   Maybe I’m just bipolar and I don’t know it.  But I do know when someone starts singing songs about America, begging God to shed his grace on thee, I get a little worried about what God will send when He’s blue in the face sending grace that keeps getting rejected.   

Perhaps things will turn around soon, but I just don’t see it happening.  The need to call “HARD STARBOARD!” was yesterday and the jagged rocks of the social and financial reality are looming in front of us while our leaders play games (literal and figurative) and smile too sweetly telling us not to worry our pretty little heads.  Well… My head, not so pretty as it is, is worried.  Very worried.  Too worried to sing and pretend it’s all going to be OK.

Welcome to the DH spot, America.  Next stop, crappy local car commercials with loud voiceovers and over emphasized graphics.

Not Much time To Write

bosses decided that a project that had deadline of yesterday, involved all our clients, and was being (mis)handled by one department of 18 people who had 3 months to work on it, should be taken from their weary wittle whiney hands and dumped on my department of 5.   … With no extension of the deadline. 

I have a bad feeling that I just got handed a live grenade in a winner take all version of “Business Hot Potatoe” (The Dan Quayle edition).   I checked my job description and it doesn’t say “Scapegoat”.  Dusting off the resume in fears (hopes?) it will be needed soon.  I’d say there is no chance in hell that this project can get done, but that would insult really hopeless causes that actually have a better chance of working.  Mid-East peace… Obama turning into a Constitutionalist…  God creating a square circle that he can’t lift…

*sigh*

Feeling A Wee BYTE Hateful.

So I wake up to an email from my ISP; you know… those Comcastards?  Anyway, I wake up to their lovely email telling me that I can now monitor my own usage so I don’t go over their very generous 250GB total bandwidth usage. 

I’d managed to put the BW Cap out of my mind for a long time.  But they have to go and remind me and force it under my nose by making me check it every month now.  So you digital idiots, here’s what I think about your Cap.  It, and you by extension, suck. 

You have all these commercials touting life on the internet as some sort of limitless experience with ever faster download speeds, yet, HOLD ON THERE BUCKAROO, it’s really not limitless we have to cap it.  Then you charge me exorbitant pricing because you are the only game in town and you don’t actually use that to upgrade your infrastructure.  No, you piss it away on stupid commercials and lame internet sniffer squads that scour the web looking for any adverse comments about you. 

Instead of flashy commercials with Shaq and Ben, internet thought police, and bandwidth limits, why don’t you spend some real cash on your infrastructure so my inet doesn’t go down every 5 minutes like a $10 whore when the fleet’s in.  How about updating some of that architecture and equipment?  Why not spend a little time on designing DVR’s that actually work? 

Oh, and lest we forget, this internet company has THE WORST online payment experience of ANY place I’ve ever been.  …And I pay my city water bill online.  That site was put up by a government contractor.  IT SUCKS!  Yet I’m able to pay my bill on the City’s site in about 30 seconds. 

But can I do anything about any of this?  No.  You are the only game in town.  I can’t get fast enough DSL in my area and you know that.  So you don’t care.  So I’m stuck with you for internet.  But not much longer on the others. I’m dumping your useless digital phone and probably switching to Dish/Satellite as well.  I know that does nothing for the BW Cap, but it will make me feel better that I’m not paying you as much per month.

But Dante… Obama Signed An Excutive Order…

… so tax payer funded Abortions won’t happen. 

I have a lovely bridge I’d like you to look at.  Bargain basement price.  Won’t be on the market long.

IF that order is worth the piece of paper it’s written on, which I suspect it isn’t because it can not counter statutes and the Senate bill HAS IT IN THERE!  It’s only a stop-gap.  Obama, comfortably re-elected in a landslide by his new 25 million dolist voters from sur of the border, will trot some poor teenaged latino who was raped by her AIDS ridden meth head MS13 dad.  He’ll say he has to rescind his order.  …For the children.

Next Up: Shamnesty

The Late US of A will have the grave site tap-dance soon when the Congress uses the same underhanded filthy unconstitutional tactics to pass shamnesty. 25 million instant Democrat voters on the dole will make sure that Obama and the Socialists stay in power long enough to ensure no one can resurrect this country.

The Grim Sound Of Inevitability

The House just posed the “Slaughter Solution” bill for review which they wouldn’t have done if they don’t have the votes.  So it looks like we are going to have Obamacare and there’s nothing we can do about it. 

Also looks like I’ll be forced to pay for abortion that will start in 4 years, because if anyone believes that is going to be reconciled OUT of the bill, you’re deluded.

So within 4 years, I’ll have to find a new country to move to so I won’t be materially complicit in killing babies. 

I’m disgusted in my country.  The failure of leadership on this issue leaves me cold with blind hatred.  I’m glad that I’m not Jesus, because if they had to meet me at death’s door, I’d be tossing them into hell in job lots.  May He’ll be a tad more merciful.

Meanwhile… I guess I need to improve my skill set and learn a new language. 

Oh, and the “Gun Rights” issue.  It makes no never mind.  I know I will never find another country that will allow me to defend myself.  But it doesn’t make a difference.  I can’t live someplace that allows me to carry a gun but kills children with public funds.  Besides, The Constitution being as squishy as it is and governmental ponzi schemes being what they are, they’ll have to get rid of our guns at some point before the bills for this come due and this country erupts into riots.

I’m really sad and confused right now.  I’m not sure where to turn.  Oh well…  I guess it doesn’t matter anymore.  I’m sure in the next 4 years, something will present itself and I’ll be able to move on.

I can only hope there has been a MASSIVE miscalculation by House leaders and they don’t get the votes they think they have or that by some miracle, God hears the prayers of desperation made by people like me and reaches into the hearts of Congressional Democrats and they turn this bill aside.  I don’t see option #2 happening.  I think we are just simply reaping what we have sewn.  God tends to let that happen.

We Used To Only JOKE…

…About “Voting from the Rooftops.”   I’m getting the sick feeling that that may be the only solution left.  Especially when I get broadsided with this kind of blatant evil.

It turns out that Rep. Slaughter (Love the name.  Very apropos.) sees a way to turn the Obamacare travesty into a full Constitutional meltdown

Please read Article I, Section VII

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States;…

Not “A Rules Change that says we would have voted for the Bill.”  THE ACTUAL BILL ITSELF HAS TO PASS!!!!   PERIOD!

The fact that this is even being considered is a testament to how dangerous Washington DC has become to both the states and the people. 

IMHO, if this is the road they use, then Congress (The House in particular) and The Executive branch are in full breach of their oaths to uphold The Constitution and therefore will not longer govern with the consent of the people.  Do with that what you will.

FRACK YOU, UNCLE SAM!

Please skip over to Tam’s here and here and read while I get out my copy of The Constitution of the United States of America and see if I can do a quick search on National ID, Federal Governmental ID requirements, and the like.

You back?  I can’t find anything?  Nope, not one thing.  I have this cool app on my Android phone that… Never mind.  But it’s not there.  Unless you are going to argue the “General Welfare” route.  If that’s the case, then why have a Constitution at all since EVERYTHING can be couched as “for the general welfare.”

What’s that you say?  “In this day and age we need stronger ID’s and such.”  Ok… fine.  AMEND THE CONSTITUTION!  The process is there for a reason.  If you don’t have 2/3rds of the states behind you then piss off. 

Wow… I guess I’m going to spend a lot of time in Federal Prison what with refusing to accept forced Obamacare and now refusing to yield to having to carry around my papers. 

I wonder if it’s too late to try to cross the border into Switzerland before the Brownshirts start breaking windows?  Oh wait… wrong country and wrong century.  Wow.  I get confused.  But you understand.

I doubt crossing to Canada or Mexico will help much.  Crap.  Guess I need to get two very dark “full sleeves” so the numbers won’t show up on my forearm.

Of course… I won’t be going here to get them.


Dante…

Conservative, educated, understands history, distrusts government, distrusts politicians, dislikes pop-culture, and carries a firearm. In short, I'm what The Framers of The Constitution were counting on and everything your government wants you to fear most.

The only thing I don’t have to complain about is some GI taking up space in my living room. I’ll let you know about the Civil Courts if someone ever owes more than $20 to me. ---If you didn’t get that one; sue your Civics or US History Teacher.
