This Is My Kind Of News!

From Mrs. AOW's recent post "GQ Disses Obama" at THE ASTUTE BLOGGERS:

From NewsBusters:
President Barack Obama and MSNBC's Ed Schultz have been named to GQ magazine's annual list of "The 25 Least Influential People Alive."


...Obama came in 25th....
I love getting this kind of news before breakfast. Really stimulates my appetite and makes me eager to get to the ballot box in November 2012!

I plan to get a copy of the December 2011 edition of GQ. I want to support GQ's advertisers.

The Scarlet Letter Updated

People that voted for Nobama should have to wear a scarlet "A" all the time.

The "A" stands for a$$hole.

How could any American vote for someone with the middle name "Hussein"?

Yeah, I'm an opinionated old geezer.

No Decency, No Respect

Back in the day, when I used to put up our outdoor Christmas decorations, I'd have hunted down the thieves and given them the ass whipping of their lives because that's what they deserve:

Happy Thanksgiving

I'm really looking forward to Thanksgiving this year. We have two invitations, and we've accepted both. That means that we'll eat an early-afternoon dinner and also an evening dinner. I will get some of that good fall-asleep turkey so that I can watch the football games with my eyes closed -- as usual.

The first dinner will be at our neighbor's house. What a feast they will have! The hostess is from Georgia and can really cook up a feast fit for a king.  But the really entertaining part of the celebration at our neighbor's house will be finding out what idiocy our liberal neighbor's Leftwing son, has come up with this year.  He is a staunch Obama supporter and still proudly sports his Obama 2008 stupidity sticker on his parents' old Saturn station wagon.  This 41 year old will not work for "the man," so he takes handouts from his capitalistic parents.  Go figure.  He's bringing his new girlfriend, who is a fire dancer. Apparently, she is going to perform. Heh.

The second dinner will be at the ritzy home of one of Mrs. AOW's homeschool families. This feast will have both traditional American Thanksgiving food and Chinese food because the family is from China.  Mrs. AOW cannot refuse an invitation from homeschool parents -- especially the Chinese, as they bow with great respect to teachers and view refusing an invitation as an insult.  Besides, I want to eat the food there!

Getting two meals on Thanksgiving Day will make up for my missed dinner on November 18, when I went to a gun show and the damn handicapped transport van left a friend and me (He's also handicapped) stranded for hours. By the time we finally got back to the house, it was too late to eat dinner.  It's a wonder that we didn't have to spend the night in the expensive hotel near the convention center where the gun show was being held.

Happy Thanksgiving to all who stop by my blog!

The Supercommitte

The Supercommitte has thrown up their hands, and these Congress critters say that they can't do the job.

I say that we should throw up our hands and not pay them one more red cent.

Get ready for another downgrade of the U.S. credit rating thanks to these Ivory Tower losers who are supposed to represent us.

Next thing you know, banks will be charging us to keep our savings in the banks.

Blast From The Past

As a teenager, I had this 45 in my collection:

Do any of you remember this one?

The Problem With Education Today

There once was a student named Besser
Whose knowledge grew lesser and lesser.
It grew so small
He knew nothing at all,
And today he's a college professor.

Veterans Day

Most Americans don't begin to appreciate our military veterans enough.

Only lately, did I, a veteran, ever hear "Thanks for serving." In fact, the first time I was ever thanked for my service was at a Gathering of Eagles event in 2005. I served during the Vietnam War Era.

Today, on this Veterans Day, or any day for that matter, say "Thank you!" to an American veteran.

I Despise Obama

HERE is just one more reason that I despise Obama.

I'm glad that I'm not serving in the military right now.

I couldn't stand Obama as my commander in chief.

I'm glad that my father, who served in World War II, isn't around now to see what's happening to America.

Time For Humor

Did you hear the one about the guy that wanted to become a bisexual?

He figured that if he became a bisexual he could double his chances for a date on Saturday night.

Pure Stupidity To Continue This

As a lifelong coin collector and a former coin dealer, I find these coins unique in that they have the date, mint mark, and motto on the edge of the coin. This placement of the engraving has never been produced before by the U.S. Mint and brings the idea of three sides to a coin to a new level. I'd personally like to see the series completed, but the good idea has flopped and is costing the taxpayers too much money now:
