The Valley Girl

What a dumbass. After all the liberal angst about the intellectual prowess of Bush and/or Sarah Palin, enter stage right their very own Caroline Kennedy. This 'ditz' sounds like a teenage valley girl on know, you know, you know, you know, oh whatever. During the NY Times (dying liberal rag it is) interview, she failed to organize one single sentence that made sense.

Combine the juvenile babbling of Caroline with Joe (the Gaffe-O-Matic) Biden, this political season may become the most entertaining know, you know, you know.

I always thought Jackie O was a ditz, and it seems both her children inherited her intellectual acumen. During JFK's first term, a comedy record was produced by the title "The First Family". This album exploited Jackie's ditzyness as they mocked her then famous television tour of the White House.

Caroline and Joe, please keep us laughing in 2009.

Merry Christmas

I'd like to thank the RINOs for delivering the next four years of miserable liberal governance, godless federal judges, the invasion of illegal aliens, redefinition of marriage by homos, and the redistribution of wealth (killing capitalism for once and all). Thanks a lot.

America may have died in 2008. The end of time predicted by the Mayans (in 2012) sounds less preposterous than it did four years ago. I have absolutely little hope that the country can pull out of the death spiral its in. President Hussein, who is equally celebrated by our enemies, rose to power from obscurity like the anti-Christ, a rise to power that defies logic. Its was nothing short of supernatural. The only thing we have yet to discover is the mark of the beast. We have its number.

Thoughts on Bailing

Bailouts almost insure Corporations and Unions operate with little fear of complete failure. Govt rescues are like a NET under the TRAPEZE. If therewas no NET, they'd be a damn bit more careful before swinging out into the wild blue yonder. I think that would be a good more "too big to fail" thinking. Perhaps if corporations were required to FULLY fund pension plans, then plans would realistically align with market forces.There needs to be more accountability of CEOs to stockholders. Something is broke when pay isn't aligned with performance. How in the h*ll the GE CEO(Imment) keeps his job is beyond me. Bottom line- there has to be a consequence to failure. A world with noconsequences is a mythical thing. Is this situation perhaps evidence of allthis 'self-esteem' crap put out in public schools over the last 30 years? Wedon't play competitive games on the playground, so everyone wins, everyone gets a trophy, blah blah blah.The best definition of self esteem I've ever heard is...."to not rely onothers for the burden of your own existence".

As the test pilot climbs out of the experimental aircraft, havingtorn off the wings and tail in the crash landing, the crash truck arrives;the rescuer sees a bloodied pilot and asks, 'What happened?'
