Going Galt?

I just heard (via local TV news) that Strattons, a wonderful 1950’s-style diner located in Ashland City, Tennessee is selling-out to Walgreeens. Now I can’t blame Walgreens for buying it – it’s a great location – nor can I really blame the owners for selling, since the news is they got a great deal.

Nope, I don’t really blame anyone. Except, I wonder . . . did the growing unfriendly attitude towards business by the current administration (Obamacare, higher taxes, more regulation, destroying the economy with “stimulus”, etc.) have something to do with their decision?

Only the owners know for sure, but I do know that if I owned a small business, I certainly would give those factors some heavy thought in making my decision to sell.  A decision they’ve evidently faced several times over the years, as this is not their first offer for what is, as I said, a prime business location.

Well, a lot of folks voted for hope and change in this past election.  Many of them living in this area, it being heavily Democrat.  And no doubt many of them Stratton’s customers.  I wonder if this is the change they hoped for?

On a personal note, I’m seriously thinking of opening my own small business in a few years.  I wonder how things will be then?

No Shit

Tell us something we didn’t know.

“In a private meeting with House progressives, President Obama said that this bill is just a foundation for future reform, and could pave the way for a later push for the public option and even single-payer systems at the state-level.”

It’s also the foundation for a socialist America, which is what Barry wants since he is a fricken socialist.

Not The Conduct Of A President. But Certainly The Conduct Of A Community Organizer

Like, say, Al Sharpton or Jessie Jackson, or an angry ACORN worker. Or maybe a Code Pink type. But no, it was none of these. it was the President of the United States America.

His arrival was immediately followed by a pithy presentation. Right after his arrival at the conference center, he let it be known to those present: “The time for [mere] talk is over.” He would assume leadership of the negotiations.

Together with Chancellor Angela Merkel, the leaders of Russia, Brazil, Japan, the European Union and of other important countries, Obama went to work. But it did not go quite as the Nobel Peace Prize-winner had imagined. Only Norbert Röttgen, Minister for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety remained optimistic. In spite of the tough negotiations, a compromise can be found, he said. “Today the die will be cast.”

Instead a fiasco had begun making itself visible and felt. It began during the night of Friday and Saturday. A small group of negotiators assembled from among the 30 important and representative countries, among them Germany, were still discussing the main features and principles to be included in a twelve-point document. It was titled “The Copenhagen Accord” and consisted of a three-page collection of vague aims, without specific legally-binding goals that were to be achieved.

Although China is among the worst climate polluters and has had a long ascent in becoming an industrial power deserving of respect and recognition, Premier Wen Jiabao was not among the participants in the talks-not that his participation was not desired. To the contrary!

According to rumors in the Bella Center, US President Barack Obama at about 11 PM, had impatiently asked to speak with Wen Jiabao in order to advance the discussion. But Obama had to wait. Wen, who, it was rumored, had rarely left his hotel room, could not be found. Finally, the US delegation located him in a room set aside for negotiations. A visibly furious Obama, according to reports, stormed into the room. “Are you now ready to talk with me, Premier Wen?” he was reported to have shouted. “Are you now ready? Premier Wen, are you now ready to talk with me?” What a scene for a US president.

Wen was not alone in the room at the time when Obama quite literally burst into the room, according to participants. At the time, the Premier was in a conversation with India’s head of state, Mammohan Singh and South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma. Suddenly the group saw itself forced into a conversation with the US president.

This was the guy who was supposed to be better at foreign relations than that cowboy, George Bush? The guy who, through his charm, professionalism, intelligence, etc., was going to win the love and cooperation of the whole world.

Instead we have a community organizing clown who embarrasses our nation time and time again. Which would be okay I guess if his clowning actually accomplished anything. But it hasn’t. Iran continues to build its nukes. North Korea keeps launching its missiles. The Chinese keep doing whatever the hell they want to do. And the big climate change Copenhagen deal is a total bust. Not that last one is a bad thing because it ain’t. It’s a wonderful thing.

Fact is, Barry sucks at this job. He sucks at it worse than Carter sucked at it.  He doesn’t know what the hell he is doing both here at home and abroad. His popularity is already at a low that George Bush hadn’t dipped to even in his last year as president. The vast majority of Americans do not want Obamacare, and that includes liberals, but he and Reid and Pelosi are just too damn stupid or corrupt to care.  It would be funny if they weren’t so damn dangerous on every level.

May a pox be on the houses of everyone who voted for this clown.  If this country goes down you helped bring it about.

QUICK UPDATE:

Really?  This is our president? Who accidentally uses that finger to rest their head on?  Via Theo.

ANOTHER UPDATE:

Barry and his staff put a Mao ornament on the White House Christmas tree. And a transvestite ornament. And a photo of him on Mount Rushmore ornament. Obama, not the transvestite, although both are equally creepy in my opinion. These people are fricken nuts.

Look To The Cookie

Remember the Seinfeld episode where Jerry promotes the Black and White cookie as the cure to racism. “Look to the cookie, Elaine,” he says, “Look to the cookie.”

Well, I don’t know about those cookies but I am loving this whole black and white bra look.

Plus here’s a great cheerleader look.

Here’s the episode in case you haven’t seen it.

And not that this post was supposed to be remotely political – it wasn’t, it was about bras and boobs –  but doesn’t this episode remind you of Barry and the millions who elected him?

Not only was Barry – “The Cookie” – supposed to cure America’s racism issues, but he was actually supposed to cure, well, everything.

“Look to the cookie,” they said, and the nation  did.

But instead of  the wonderful experience we were promised all we got was a broken toe and nausea.

Hat-tip to Theo for the gals.

Some Tossed-Away Tidbits

1. Time waster of the day.

2. Time waster of last night. God help our troops being led by this waffling Carter-clone. BTW, in that speech there were 45 uses of the word “I” and zero uses of the word “Victory.” Make of that what you will.

3. The 50 Worst Cars of All Time. I had one of the AMC selectees.

4. Chris Matthews, calls West Point an “enemy camp.” Eh, liberals think our own military is the enemy – what’s new about that? Matthews is a slimy thing though that is for sure.

5. Tiger Woods’ wife beat him up? Good joke I heard. As she was swinging at him with the club, he yelled, “No, don’t use the wood, use the nine iron.” I don’t golf, but I was told that is funny.

Hat-tip to Three Donia for the photo at the top.

I Keep Apologizing

For not posting and it’s getting old. Both to you and to me. But the fact is things have been very busy lately at work and my father is experiencing some possibly serious medical issues that have taken my mind away from this little hobby.  Bear with me.

Let’s see.

Cap and Trade is dead they say.  Not going to be finished until Spring which means not in an election year which, unless the economy really does a turn-around, not at all.

That’s a good thing.

The push for Obamacare?  Still alive but taking more and more hits every day.  Latest blunder on our socialist overlord’s part is picking a fight with the Pink Ribbon crowd over breast cancer screening.  What morons. Getting between a woman and her boobs is a dangerous thing indeed.

Good news though, because it is serving to wake-up more and more Americans to the fact that government-run health care will include rationing of this sort big time.  Yeah, yeah, Barry and the Dems are swimming backward from it now, but seriously does anyone believe they won’t do this very thing over and over under a government program?  And forget it if you are elderly.  It’s pushing the wheelchairs down the stairs for you.

Oh, Barry went to Japan once again made a total fool of himself.  First Pacific President my ass.   And the way he bowed to the Japanese Emperor you would have thought it was date night with Michelle.  And the Chinese.  Plenty of time for photo-ops of him wearing his favorite Mao jacket, but no time to meet with real Chinese folks.

He has done nothing to improve our standing in the world.  People respect strength and he is not a strong man.  Trying terrorists in a civilian court is not strong.  Being too much of a quivering wimp to call the Fort Hood shooting Islamic terrorism is not strong.

Sends a great message.

They also want a man who keeps his word and knows his mind.  Which Barry doesn’t.  Close Gitmo down by January?  Well, no.  Make a decision, any decision, on Afghanistan?  Maybe in a few weeks.

What a putz this guy is.  Carter times infinity.

Speaking of strong, well, women, Sarah Palin released her new book.  I don’t have one yet but I am hoping for a copy for Christmas.  I don’t know if she has a shot at the presidency or not but I am confident she would be a good one.  Perhaps a great one.  Certainly a better one that we have now.

By a long shot.

Have you ever noticed that blogging is so much more easy and fun when you don’t have to link all the time.  Well, it is.  So just look this stuff up if you don’t believe me.

Oh, speaking of Carter. Did you hear that he actually thinks his actions during the Iranian Hostage Crisis helped things? Look it up. He did. Talk about self-delusion.

Hey, that’s it. I got to go. Hopefully things will slow down after Thanksgiving (which I may be working).

Oh, hat-tip to Theo for the picture. It’s worth a link.

Sometimes I Am Very Embarrassed To Be In Law Enforcement

Not often, in fact very seldom. But yes occasionally. And Officer Officer Wesley Cheeks, Jr. is one reason why.
