God Bless our Veterans of Wars Both Foreign and Domestic!

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence 
on their behalf."

~ George Orwell (1903-1950)

Truer words we never written, and may God forever bless those men. I'd prefer to call them BRAVE and TOUGH rather than rough, but Orwell certainly had the right idea.


Apolitical Aphorisms
Meet President Wysiwyg. What you see is what you got.

If God had wanted us to vote, 
He would have given us candidates.
~Jay Leno~

The problem with political jokes is they
get elected.
~Henry Cate, VII~

We hang the petty thieves
and appoint the great ones to public office.
~Aesop~

If we got one-tenth of what was promised
to us in these State of the Union speeches, 
there wouldn't be any inducement to go to heaven.
~Will Rogers~

Politicians are the same all over.  They
promise to build a bridge 

even where there is no river.
~Nikita Khrushchev~

When I was a boy I was told that anybody
could become President; 

I'm beginning to believe it.
~Clarence Darrow~

Why pay money to have your family tree
traced; go into politics and your opponents 
will do it for you.
~Author unknown~
And here's to you, Nancy, Harry, and Barry 

Politicians are people who, when they see
light at the end of the tunnel, go out 
and buy some more tunnel.
~John Quinton~

Politics is the gentle art of getting
votes from the poor and campaign funds 

from the rich,  by promising to protect 

each from the other.
~Oscar Ameringer~

I offer my opponents a bargain: 

if they will stop telling lies about us, 

I will stop telling the truth about them.
~Adlai Stevenson, campaign speech, 1952~

A politician is a fellow who will lay
down your life for his country.
~Tex Guinan~

I have come to the conclusion that
politics is too serious a matter 

to be left to the politicians.
~Charles de Gaulle~

Instead of giving a politician the keys
to the city, it might be better to change the locks.
~Doug Larson~

There ought to be one day -- just one --
when there is open season on politicians.
~Will Rogers~

  2. What is it with this CREEP?
    ONCE AGAIN,Obama bowed to the Chinese President

    And where is Mooch? Is she not there to astound and beguile our mortgage holders with her exquisite taste in Chinese Know-Offs of Hand bags, Shoes and other fashion?

  3. FreeThinke is hors de combat today. Been locked out of the blog and lost my Google ID.

    Not in any hurry to return. It's very iffy right now.

    I'm sure thousands of mental midgets and malcontents will cheer at the prospect of my not being here anymore.

    Cheer away. I hope you all get laryngitis. };-)>

  6. HEY! I'm BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACK. };-)>

    Not as hard as I though it would be when confronted with the problem before my first cuppa caffeine.

    That first illustration may be "over the top" as they insist on saying these days, but it was just too, too funny to resist.

    Some of these quotes were really very apt -- except for Adlai Stephenson's putridly partisan, disingenuous, elegantly churlish observation. But what else could we expect from a DEMOCRAT?

    Most of them accurately apply to ALL politicians from ALL of recorded history.

    Politicians STINK to HIGH HEAVEN.

    Why is that, you ask?

    Because the P{UBLIC positively DEMANDS it.

    When morons, felons, demons, mendicants and malcontents are allowed to vote, we get the government we DESERVE-- never the one we NEED.

    The FOUNDERS' idea of "democracy" was NOTHING LIKE the ill-advised populism we live with today -- thanks to the inroads made since Lincoln played Napoleon and anointed himself our First Dictator.

  7. Ducky, until you get the psychiatric help you desperately need, and iron out these extreme kinks in your always warped personality, you are no longer welcome here.

    I have no time for knaves, fools or psychopaths.

    I don't consider you a enemy, but you certainly take great pride in functioning as a chronic PAIN-in-the -ASS.

    Come back some day, if you like, but only AFTER you've gotten back in touch with reality.

    This flying monkey routine of yours is insupportable.

    BYE!

  10. Ducky has proven over and over that he is incapable of honest debate.

    ReplyDelete
  11. He thinks his "ends" are so fine, so noble, so infinitely SUPERIOR that they justify ANY untoward behavior it might take to implement them. People of his sort truly want to TOPPLE and DESTROY the status quo, so their oh-so-superior selves can REBUILD society according to the Marxian Model.

    And they don't care how many hundreds of millions of others they have to kill in order to make the world fit to live in.

  14. You somehow missed the all time best quote about politicians ever.

  15. Razor's Edge:

    Go here:

    http://alwaysonwatch3.blogspot.com/2014/11/a-few-ideas.html

    and see how Ducky slinks away from the field of battle when confronted with the inevitable illogic of his own bullshit.

    He won't even answer a question; he just keeps lighting strawmen on fire and farting out irrelevant challenges. Typical leftist

    No kidding!

    Why do "the masses" believe politicians' utterances at all?

  17. The Left has been particularly apoplectic lately. Tuesday's election results were the final straw for them.

    I has long appeared that our nation was drifting -- or galloping -- to the Left. The brakes were applied during the 2014 Elections. And the Left can't stand it!

    Things are going to get even nastier in the blogosphere as long as the Left detects repudiation, no matter how mild that repudiation might be.

  18. For what it's worth...Gallup: Dems plunge to record low.

    Note the following:

    [I]t is the first time since 2011 the GOP has had a higher rating than the Democrats.

    The Left is going to be screeching, screeching, screeching.

    ReplyDelete
  19. One reason that the Left is now screeching in daefening volume:

    President Obama’s executive amnesty will not be easy to execute. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services will have to be ordered to redirect funds and personnel away from its statutorily mandated enforcement duties and towards processing applications, amnesty benefits, and employment authorizations for illegal immigrants and illegal overstays. It is a massive and expensive operation.

    And it cannot be implemented if Congress simply includes routine language on any government funding bill prohibiting the expenditure of funds for this unlawful purpose. This is the same way we prevented the President from closing Guantanamo Bay. Such application of congressional power is ordinary, unexceptional, and used thousands of times.

    Congress has the power of the purse. The President cannot spend a dime unless Congress appropriates it.
