More Nostalgia
A once great company tries to save itself by shedding it's dignity and doing professional wrestling ... so to speak.



Was it Kierkegaard who observed that people who find themselves under the knuckle of ratbastardmfcscommie gummint, led by an alien poseur-- that when that happens the individual turns to banquets of nostalgia for cessation? Well, it works, but watch out that you don't get lost in dereistic thought to the point of autism. So wtf am I talking about?  I'm talking about A Digital Archive of Vintage Television Commercials, that's what.  You're welcome - and guess who I have a date with tonight?  Annette!

Jesse's Doing Crack Again

Jesse 'Snowball' Jackson
On Thursday's Martin BashirĂ¢ on MSNBC, The Rev. Jesse Jackson said the current budget battle was an extension of the American Civil War. "[T]his really is a Civil War fight," Jackson said.

"This is making the federal government dysfunctional on the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. These guys will support three wars. They'll support tax dodgers. They'll support the wealthiest Americans getting tax breaks. They want to cut into education and health care. This is an ideological battle." 

Jackson, who hates Jews, threatened to castrate Obama, and almost won the Democratic nomination during the 80s when the entire party was apparently high on cocaine, added,

"You have those who believe in states' rights and those who believe in a more perfect union," he said. "States' rights are anti-civil rights, anti-worker's right to bargain, anti-social justice, pro-rich and significantly insensitive to poor people  that was the great divide 150 years ago and it's the great divide today in the ideological sense." (DC)

64 Impala

Classics

  I sent you some pics of my 1964 Impala , when I drive it people honk , wave , and jump out at lights to take pictures . My kids think they are rock stars when we ride to the ball games ! Oh , and my plates read "SMIBS" Southern Maryland In Bred'S ; ) > SMIBSID

I'm mad for car televison right now ( Chasing Classic Cars, Wheeler Dealers, What's my car worth, Mecum Auto Auctions, Wrecks to Riches, etc ...) so this was a special e-mail.  It's difficult to know what condition this '64 Impala is in, but I know it's worth in the neighborhood of $20,000 to $65,000 at auction.  So, Sid, you've got it all - a beautiful family and a classic car.  Please don't tell me there's a '57 Bel Air in the barn too.

Me-Time for Obama

Me Time
legacy building going on here boss
  Mr. Obama has had terrible luck when it comes to work interfering with play.

The family’s Hawaiian vacation in 2009 was interrupted by the Christmas Day attempt to bomb a plane. Their attempt to relax in Martha’s Vineyard in August of that year was cut short by the death of Senator Edward M. Kennedy. His visit to Indonesia, where he spent several years as a child, was delayed by the final votes on the health care bill. [New York -what happened to the pay-wall?- Times]
Wax-nostalgic: Legacies
Firming up the legacy

I did a "how many Obama vacations" search,  and could only find the figure "six,"  from last year.  I did find several "not as many as Bush during the same relative period" answers, so it's obviously become an embarrassment to Bam-pologists.  Anyway, as ACE observed [Obama on Verge of Government Shutdown: Hey, I Think I've Earned Another Vacation!]:

You know, I think that's the way to beat this guy: Just keep controversies brewing every week. He'll resign rather than miss his me-time.

The shut-down is scheduled to begin at midnight tonight.  The biggest sticking point for Demorats?  Save Planned Parenthood's subsidized abortion funding!  There's been various stories about  gummint worker angst over just which services will be frozen.  Puh-leeze. The answer, as always, is whatever will inconvenience the public the most, and make the best backdrop for Democrat-media wailing.  The museums, national parks, and do you freaking believe the military? Yup. The military.  Demorats may be making a huge error there.  We are no longer, I perceive, a nation that will show the constraints of civil behavior in time of need, and I would think the last people you'd want to piss-off are the people with the big guns.  One Hellfire missile into the Senate office building would be a godsend, however. 

Disclosure: I love this country, but I fkng hate this gummint.
