Where Was This When I was Employed??

I needed this sign for my office.  As I used to tell them "It's amazing how much more management knows about the job being done than the person actually doing it", assuming competence is distributed according to the Peter Principle...

Even The Bosslady Laughed At This One

We have had this type of conversation more than twice.....

More From The 'True Dat' File

A letter to the editor of the Wall Street Journal:
You imply that Barack Obama, considering income inequality, feels there are two Americas. Yes, there are two Americas. The America that works and the America that doesn't. The America that contributes and the America that doesn't.
It isn't the haves and the have-nots. It's the doers and the don'ts. Some people do their duty as Americans, obey the law, support themselves, contribute to society; others don't. That's the divide in America.
The Constitution gives you equality before the law. It doesn't give income equality. Life is what you make of it. That's not invective, that's truth.

There is someone I'd like to shake the hand of and let him know he is not alone.

Remember This Cognitive Dissonance

No comment necessary.

WTFO?

I had sort of gotten used to the fact that this country was being seriously diminished by the actions of the occupant of the White House.  But halting the manufacture of two front-line weapons systems necessary for the safety of our country without replacements in the manufacturing pipeline in the foreseeable future is beyond the pale.
The tree of liberty will be watered with the blood of patriots if we are intentionally disarmed, as the present regime is doing. 
God help us every one....

This Is Too Good Not To Post

And I hope it makes you think....
Too much of a view of the future...

RIP Barkley 2003-2014

Please visit my sister from another mister Brigid over at Home on the Range.  Her canine companion had to cross Bifrost Bridge today because of bone cancer.  Read her eulogy and think of your own canine friend and confidants.  Twas a pairing blessed indeed.
Brigid is also a talented wordsmith, cook, and baker.  Time spent on her site is well-spent, indeed.

I Had Not Thought About This

However, a moment's reflection regarding the last 25 years of American military history draws these unpleasant observations :
Since the Vietnam War, no American combat leader above the position of company commander has faced a situation where his unit was at risk of defeat by an unexpected enemy attack.
Ever.
This observation ought to freeze the blood of commanders up-to-and-including-the-CIC.  But it won't.  And we will re-learn the lessons of  Kasserine Pass and  "Frozen Chosin" and Bull Run again paying the price in American blood.  Which all too happens NOT to be those who forgot the harsh lessons of their ancestors.
We live in interesting times....

Send the Waaaahmbulance

Like some other bloggers I have read lately, the ability to post on some blogger blogs and others has been taken from me.  So Wonderduck and SDB and Greybeard and others will have to do without my distilled words of wisdom.
They might be better off...  Or at least happier.

This Is His Truth - Changes Daily; Check Back....

This gentle person has hit the nail:
Seems to be the same old.... NOT There are Constitutional realities.  Despite the actions of the Executive Brand.  So far, we are still under of Rule of Law, with some Executive Branch violaiins of the Constitution.  Infractions dictated by the gov. reaction to 9/11/11 have become SOP.
 I'm at the age I won't be able to  be the sharp edge of the collapse of the First World.  I will probably not survive the monetary collapse.
Sucks to be me.
But I tried to inure my kids with survival skills.  I have hope for them - I figure the Bosslady and  I will wind up advising other folks after thw crash.
We did our job as parental units..  Both our kids are tough enough to survive "life-as-we-know-it"..

Tune From the 60's

And if you listen to the words, it could be a tune from the 2010's....

This Is Funny in a Masochistic Way

As a Browns/Indians fan for about 60 years, this hits the sweet spot of the gigglebox.  Thanks to the Outrider - I have the sneaking suspicion he's from around here....
Almost too painful to be funny.....

They Don't Stop Digging..

The Senate has passed an extension of unemployment benefits.  I assume this will help the Democrats with their live voters..

How did this get by the lower house??  So far, this giveaway  (and the whole stimulus package)has not helped the economy.  An extension of this helps our economy how?  Please, show me how that works.
I don't understand why giving money from taxes to others helps the GDP.
This is a bleg.

I Missed The Press Conference

Where Obozo stated "If you like glo-bull warmening, you can keep it.  Period."

True dat.

Excuse Me??

This is a disturbing ruling :
Texas courts have ruled that because legally owned firearms represent “a threat of physical violence” to police, officers may ignore the 4th Amendment rights of Texas residents by treating ALL legally issued warrants as “No Knock” warrants, even if the issuing judge has made it clear that officers “…must knock on the door and announce their identity and purpose before attempting a forcible entry.”
This should cause some ruckus - and more dead folks.  Falling right in line with a federal plan to stimulate martial law.  As Sidney said "Slide on the ice...."

H/T to Kenny.

The Secretaries of State Lose Their Marbles

Sure, everybody has heard the famous Shrillary quote re: Benghazi:
"What difference does it make?"
(Wish we could have sent you there and find out, Hill.Where's Mr Peabody when you need the Wayback?)
But raving insanity obviously is endemic to the SofS position in an Obama regime:
Secretary of State John Kerry is proposing to offer up US troops to help secure the borders of the new state of Palestine, according to some unconfirmed news reports coming out of Israel.
Maybe Ketchup-Boy should research "Beirut bombing".  Or grab his earlobes and pull.  Unless, of course, his whole purpose is to finish the destruction of the US military so ably begun by his Ear Leader's purge of the military (see 1930's Russia) and allow mexican cartels to virtually retake the Gadsden Purchase via our southern non-border while being pointedly ignored.  Just having Samantha Power in favor of this idiocy ain't enough...
