“Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and neither do we.” - George W. Bush

In the News

Whit and I can read each other's posts while we draft them. You will see that the bottom gives authorship to Whit but I snuck in. Looking at some of the headlines today you can keep going and going but I want to add one more to the top of his list. It seems that Bush is going to a direct attack on his base. This is the political genius that declared his undying love for Putin. He practically frenched him and got greeked in return. Now he is going after "fear-mongering" opponents of his give-away of your savings and future social security benefits. - Deuce

Bush Takes On Opponents of Immigration Bill

Published: May 30, 2007
GLYNCO, Ga., May 29 — President Bush took on parts of his conservative base on Tuesday by accusing opponents of his proposed immigration measure of fear-mongering to defeat its passage in Congress.

President Bush spoke at a training center for border enforcement agents located in Glunco, Ga., on Tuesday.

“If you want to scare the American people, what you say is the bill’s an amnesty bill,” Mr. Bush said at a training center for customs protection agents and other federal agents here in southeastern Georgia. “That’s empty political rhetoric trying to frighten our citizens.”

Al-Qaida Video Threatens Attacks on U.S.
By ANNA JOHNSON, Associated Press Writer

2 hours ago

CAIRO, Egypt - An American member of al-Qaida warned President Bush on Tuesday to end U.S. involvement in all Muslim lands or face an attack worse than the Sept. 11 suicide assault, according to a new videotape.

Wearing a white robe and a turban, Adam Yehiye Gadahn, who also goes by the name Azzam al-Amriki, said al-Qaida would not negotiate on its demands.

"Your failure to heed our demands ... means that you and your people will ... experience things which will make you forget all about the horrors of September 11th, Afghanistan and Iraq and Virginia Tech," he said in the seven-minute video.

  2. Fear monger, you!

    The Minutemen border watchers, a block watch of sorts, were declared vigilantes by Mr Bush.

    Citizens who care.

    Crass citizens, uneducated to the International rights of man.

    Taking the law into their own hands, by putting the Border Patol on speed dial.

    Who you gonna call. Mr Bush is representive of Republicans, of conservatives. He says so. The Party faithful agree.

  3. Ok, some simple points,

    Bush has nothing to lose by attacking the conservative base of the Republican Party. His popularity hovers at +/-30%. He has no political capial in DC left; the cistern is dry.

    Coming from the aristocracy he doesn't really give a damn about Joe Sixpack and he wants this bill and the North American Union as a legacy since Iraq will be his blue dress stain.

    We must keep the pressure on the House. The House is the putative weak link. I just finished my third letter to my congressman about the Presidents speech at Glynco today.

    I would remind those that are so inclined to write to first check the margin of victory your rep had in the last election..if it was close hammer that point and mention that you will work relentlessly for his/her defeat if he/she supports the President. That will resonate with them.
    The President can't hurt them anymore so we're really in a strong position.

    Even if Mitch McConnell isn't your Senator write him. He's one of the point men in the Senate. Remind him you'll be happy to help fund his opposition.

    Lets continue to bring the heat. If we don't this country will be unrecognisable in five years and in ten we'll be second tier.

    Good luck and vio con dios.

  4. DR,

    I don't think the party faithful are behind Bush..he's down to the party synchophants, those who would vote for O.J Simpson if the party bosses got him nominated.

    For him to decalre the Minutemen vigilantes really pisses me off. Bush is the one who is completely fucking up this country. I hope Texans run him out of the state when he retires...let him get back to Kennebunkport or Acapulco.

  5. What is somewhat apparent is that AQ has not successfully attack the US in the manner they did on 9-11.

    I hope and pray this is from our intelligence,military and law enforcement efforts and not just dumb luck. We are told it is due to our combined efforts and learning the game better. It also hasn't hurt that we have killed or captured a great many of the initial AQ leadership and chatted with them.

    I still believe they will strike us again. Then we will kill many Islams IN THIS COUNTRY. It will be unavoidable. It may not be just but it is they way vigilantes operate and from the chatter I hear at the rifle range there are a great many just waiting.

  6. You tell them boys down at the range to just call the gummit on them Muzzies.

    A sure free ticket to 2 hots and a cot, as they are called to perform their patriotic duties as dhimmis as has been decreed by the elites on hight.

  7. " “That’s empty political rhetoric trying to frighten our citizens.”

    My Corrupt, Treasonous Bullshit does not stink.
    Their truth is Seditious.

  8. Deuce,

    For meritorious service to this nation and his community in addition to bringing honor upon himself and the Elephant Bar I hereby nominate Bob-L for the Supreme Medal of Elephant Bar or other decoration you deem appropriate.

    Respectfully submitted,


  9. "Doug,
    Are you referring to the guyback in the 9170's that got some real altitude in that lawn chair..used a be-be gun to shoot the balloons to lose altitude...what a trip..
    is that the guy you're talking about?
    That was the guy:
    He lived to tell about it, but came to an early end in some other pursuit.'

  10. "In the 9170"
    (to the tune of 2525)

  11. Doug,

    I don't tell the ole boys anything, nor do I join into the banter and bravado. I just go shoot and tally my scores.

    But I do listen as various guys "hold court". I'm a loner. The time I served the Republican Party for several years in this county was something I was drafted into after having done some local radio.

    I much prefer the anonimity and dark.

  12. Doug,

    You know I can't type and I only got a half day of numbers so I be challenged.

    Thak gudnesz yu undrstan.

  13. To think of bestowing any kind of title whatsoever on our own AlBobAl is simply beyond the pale.
    Witnesseth this:
    (a lisp is acceptable)

    " My sign said
    and had a couple little American flags at the upper corners.
    I believe most folks understood what I was protesting.

    As you are aware, Herr Bush has declared such speech to be

    empty political rhetoric trying to frighten our citizens.

    Shame be upon you, AlBobAl!

  14. Larry Walters, who achieved dubious fame in 1982 when he piloted a lawn chair attached to helium balloons 16000 feet above Long Beach, has committed suicide Lawnchair Larry Flies!

    . Satisfied it would work, Larry packed several sandwiches and a six-pack of Miller Lite, loaded his pellet gun-figuring he could pop a few balloons when it was time to descend-and went back to the floating lawn chair. He tied himself in along with his pellet gun and provisions. Larry's plan was to lazily float up to a height of about 30 feet above his back yard after severing the anchor and in a few hours come back down.

    Things didn't quite work out that way.

    When he cut the cord anchoring the lawn chair to his jeep, he didn't float lazily up to 30 or so feet. Instead he streaked into the LA sky as if shot from a cannon. He didn't level of at 30 feet, nor did he level off at 100 feet. After climbing and climbing, he leveled off at 11,000 feet. At that height he couldn't risk shooting any of the balloons, lest he unbalance the load and really find himself in trouble. So he stayed there, drifting, cold and frightened, for more than 14 hours.

    Then he really got in trouble.

    He found himself drifting into the primary approach corridor of Los Angeles International Airport. A United pilot first spotted Larry. He radioed the tower and described passing a guy in a lawn chair with a gun. Radar confirmed the existence of an object floating 11,000 feet above the airport. LAX emergency procedures swung into full alert and a helicopter was dispatched to investigate

  15. Look at This Read the fifth paragraph down. I don't know whether to laugh, or cry, or what.

  16. 'in case we experienced a sudden mass immigration"!!!!!

  17. $385 million for one year--we should all have stock in that company folks, maybe we could go hunting with Cheney.

  18. No bid contract, I'll bet. Your tax money at work.

    No Amnesty--Impeach Bush:)

  19. 5 Years ago, if you had told me any of this stuff, I would have LMFAO, and told you that's what you get for listening to Late Night.

    Now it is all too real.

  20. Comic Interlude:
    Scrotum Self-Repair
    1991 Honorable Mention

    An unmarried loner, he usually didn't leave the machine shop at lunchtime with his co-workers. Finding himself alone, he had begun the regular practice of masturbating by holding his penis against the canvas drive-belt of a large floor-based piece of running machinery. One day, as he approached orgasm, he lost his concentration and leaned too close to the belt. When his scrotum suddenly became caught between the pulley-wheel and the drive-belt, he was thrown into the air and landed a few feet away. Unaware that he had lost his left testis, and perhaps too stunned to feel much pain, he stapled the wound closed and resumed work.

    I can only assume he abandoned this method of self-gratification.

  21. "Unaware"?!! ah,jeez, what a jerkoff. LOL

    Goodnight, Doug:)
