RR-Remembrance

please sir, can I have some more?

George Schultz- Ronaldo Maximus

In the Reagan period, we used force only three times. People think of us as warlike, but we used force in Grenada to rescue potential hostages there; we were in and out of there quickly, we achieved our mission, got out; we used force to put Qaddafi back in his box by taking out a building from which he had directed attacks against our soldiers; and we used it once in the Persian Gulf.

People say we didn’t communicate with Iran, but we did. When Iran was messing around with Kuwaiti shipping, you remember, we re-flagged the Kuwaiti tankers so we could protect them, and when the Iranian president was at the United Nations, giving a speech saying the last thing Iran would do would put a mine in the Persian Gulf, our Navy was taking a picture of them doing it.  And then we boarded the ship and we took some mines off for evidence, took the sailors off the ship, sank the ship, took the sailors to Dubai and said to the Iranians, come and get your sailors and cut it out. Now, that was communication. (Laughter.) -FORMER SECRETARY OF STATE GEORGE SHULTZ

THEY CAN'T READ THE BILLS THEY VOTE
ON BUT THEY CAN PLAY SOLITAIRE ...


 Connecticut Legislature

  Nothing else need to be said.  This is one of their THREE DAY WORK WEEKS that we all pay for.  I am ready to start from the beginning by voting out all elected officials and not letting any of them stay in office for more than two terms.  No more lifelong healthcare, retirement, voting in their own pay raises, taking perks on our taxes, etc.

The guy sitting in the row in front of these two...  he's on Facebook, and the guy behind Hennessy is checking out the baseball scores.

These are the folks that can't get the budget out by Oct. 1,  Seriously!!!  So, we’ve got a 30 day budget extension. Well, guess what, 30 days from now we will be in the same boat. I guess this makes it easy for the news ‘reporters’ as all they have to do is recycle the same headlines from this week and from 2 years ago. And these yo-yo’s will still be playing SOLITAIRE!!!

Nazi-NUTC?

I think he was calling her a NUTC(ee)
 
POLITICO’s Meredith Shiner reporting from Nancy Pelosi’s big health care reform announcement:

An anti-Pelosi activist started screaming into a bullhorn, “Nazi Pelosi! Nazi Pelosi! You’ll burn in hell for this!” as she was announcing the plan, which includes a public option.

Pelosi, scarcely missing a beat, responded, “Thank you, insurance companies of America.”

First Lady Now Requires 26 Servants
Michelle's Trials by Ordeal

 In my own life, in my own small way, I have tried to give back to this country that has given me so much,” she said. “See, that’s why I left a job at a big law firm for a career in public service,”— Michelle Obama.


We were wrong.

Michelle Obama, as we reported on July 7, is not served by twenty-two attendants who stand by to cater to her every whim.

She is served by twenty-six attendants, including a hair dresser and make-up artist.

The annual cost to taxpayers for such unprecedented attention is approximately $1,750,000 without taking into account the expense of the lavish benefit packages afforded to every attendant. (Here's the rest of the story .

Hamburgers

Guess what I just had for lunch?



I plucked this video from a very smartly done The AHT (A Hamburger Today) Guide to Hamburger and Cheeseburger Styles.  I'm very encouraged.  Just when I thought I knew everything in the world worth knowing, I found Dyers.  Live to grow, and grow to live, that's what my grandson's grandfather always said

New Monitor

a 5" difference is a big difference


 I bought this dirt cheap ($95) Dell 22'' monitor from Woot earlier this week (it's analog), and the FEDEX guy was here at 8AM with it.  It's blowing me away .. literally.  I tried moving it to the back of my desk, but still too big, and too bright.  I'm not complaining by the way, just surprised at the difference 5" can make.  I think it may be overpowering my graphics card a bit, since  everything has slowed down.  Reminds me of when I put three deuces (Holly) on my 1950 Ford.  Had to buy an electric fuel pump to keep up.  Then I started breaking rear axles so fast  (over torqued) that I kept a supply in the trunk.  I may have stepped in it here too, by not knowing my place.  Got uppity.

Kerry, an insufferable twat

Help, I'm so consumed with
 disgust I can't get up.



Let's stipulate that Obama and his cast of congressional Obamunists are beyond redemption; that every thing they say will in short order be shown a lie, and let me get some peace.  You too.   I did do this last night.  John Kerry.  Gak!
