I Have Returned

After a break from the blogging world, I have returned.  And unlike Dugout Doug, it didn't take Walt Krueger and the 6th Army to do it.  So hold on to your hats and grab your pants, because I am back ... and mad as hell, and I don't plan to take it anymore!

Exercising The Fifth Amendment Is Not An Admission of Guilt

Like any decent American who values honor, duty and freedom, I too am appalled at the actions of the Internal Revenue Service in its attempt to harass and intimidate freedom-loving Americans because of their views.  The actions of the Internal Revenue Service employees -- whether they were an abuse of bureaucratic hegemony exercised by the bottom feeders of the federal civil service, or were orchestrated acts perpetrated at the behest of senior administration officials -- are frightening, totalitarian, and inexcusable.

But I am also appalled at the calls by some in this country who claim that Lois Lerner should lose her job because she exercised her fifth amendment right ... or worse, that it is a sign that she is guilty.

Au contraire, people.

Negotiating With a Sociopath

I have zero faith in the "fiscal cliff" negotiations.

Because its like Tony Soprano negotiating with Shaggy from Scooby Doo.

Yes, the Republicans are Shaggy.

Morons and mongoloids who think that the game is played by Marquess de Queensbury rules are no match for a man with no morals, no character, no brains and no conscience.  President Fah King Moron is a sociopath.  Period.

The Republicans are Fredo.

Kill Buffett By Killing Coal

If President Fah King Moron (that is Barack Obama for those of you in Dundalk, MD) wants to kill coal through a back-door effort by his EPA, I say let him.  It will DESTROY Berkshire Hathaway and Warren Buffett.  Lets see what the Orifice of Omaha does when coal traffic on his beloved BNSF (that is Burlington Northern Sante Fe Railway) drops so low, he can't keep his choo-choos running.

Obama is an ass, and Buffet is the hole.  Schadenfreude!

Stupid Liberals

According to Forbes, if you took the wealth of the richest 400 Americans and combined it, you would have $1.37 trillion.  Assuming you could seize and liquidate that wealth at 100% rate of return and deposit it with the US Treasury, you would only cover spending for 4.5 months at current levels.

Now, some things to consider:
1) Wealth is not income.  So, you would have to liquidate a great deal of property and investments.  Take Warren "Asshole" Buffett.  His wealth is tied up in Berkshire Hathaway, and the day you start liquidating his investments in Berkshire, the value of the investment will begin to decline (along with everyone else's investment), as the market responds to the influx of sell orders.  So a 100% rate of return -- assuming there are buyers -- is a nigh impossibility.

2) Four and a half months is squat.  Pathetic, isn't it.

3) Most of the 400 richest Americans are "wealthy" because of accumulated wealth, not simple earned income.  That is why Warren and Mitt pay those "low" tax rates, because they take their income as a capital gain on an investment, not as standard income.  And you cannot combat accumulated wealth through tax policy.  Every time you do, it is a disaster.  Ask FDR, who did it by trying to seize gold.

Such schemes are the product of idiot liberals, who want government's hands off their birth control and their love for killing unborn children, and on our wallets instead.

Stupid liberals.

No, Those Aren't My Ads

No, those aren't my ads. They are courtesy of Google.  And you should keep that in mind if you feel driven to buy adspace on Google.  Their ad engine is imperfect.  It think that Ben Cardin is a waste of skin and oxygen, just like his leftist, loud-mouth sidekick, Babs Mikulski. I wouldn't vote for a member of the Democratic Party -- the political wing of the Klu Klux Klan for 100 years -- if Ronald Reagan was reborn and registered as a Democrat.

Of course, this year I am not super interested for voting for political pacaderms, either.

Quotes to Keep in Mind

"If the policy of the government upon vital questions affecting the whole people is to be irrevocably fixed by decisions of the Supreme Court,the people will have ceased to be their own rulers." -- Abraham Lincoln

If only the nine robed potentates of SCOTUS were so mindful of the role they play.

Olbermann Out at Current TV

One of the broadcast industry's most amazingly facile and total assholes is out at Current TV.  Even Al "Manbearpig" Gore could not longer stand Keith Olbermann's incessant whining and bitchiness.  He was the preeminent drama queen of cable, which frankly, says a lot.  Network after network, show after show, channel after channel, the man left nothing but the bitter taste of wormwood in the mouth of everyone he worked for and width.

So long, asshole.  Until the next moron that hires you.

Martin Luther King’s Dream Dies at the Hands of Joan Carter Conway

Anyone who knows me knows that I am skeptical of the benefits of an elected school board – partial, hybrid, fully or otherwise.  I might detail that skepticism at a later date, but in sum, my concern is that until the power of the state and Federal departments of education are severely diminished, the impact of such an elected board will generate no light and nothing but heat.  And Joan Carter Conway, Democratic Senator from Baltimore City and a leading catamite in “Soddom on the Severn” proves my  point.
