hobo jungle drums warning USA
be careful of bad ju ju! the hobo czar may have to find a job, since Obama will eliminate the office of hobo relations. we're on our own! that's nothing new?!
Vacation time is drawing near for our representatives in Congress. August recess is a challenge on which lobbyist trip to accept. There is the shame of not getting any invitation to a lobbyist paid trip!
The hobo population of this great country want to offer a all expense paid trip to all you folks in Congress. Hop a freight train to the Hobo jungle! We will entertain you with hobo poetry, Mulligan stew by our bon fire, and sleep under the stars.
Some of the Congress folk on the all expense paid lobbyist trips might need a traveling buddy. The hobo nation will send a traveling companion to share the burden of a luxury vacation.
We have volunteered to help our president on his fund raising trips, but he wants us to pay CASH! Is this America? Put it on my tab!
We wish we could see the vacation pictures! However, they are highly classified and will never be seen.
Will Rogers observed that; “The American taxpayer keeps sending Congress men on expensive trips abroad. It might be worth it, except they keep coming back?!”
People in desperate financial trouble are always good prospects to get robbed by a bank! nyti.ms/1no8dfn Check out this report in New York Times.
Folks that lost it all in 2008, get a 2nd chance to get robbed again! You hear the advertising screaming on the radio at you. “NO CREDIT? BAD CREDIT? Come to me, because everybody gets a car!” Yes the BIG BANKS are involved in some new illegal, unethical, and fraudulent loans for cars. The USA has the majority of car loans for 4 years or longer!? A rat hole car lot pays commission money for sales people pushing the overpriced used cars with the promise of a “loan”! The loan is USURY at rates that used to be illegal. 25%? 30%? If you got a loan for over 2 years, then the interest is more than double your overpriced car! So you get a rat hole car that needs money to fix, with a loan that you can’t pay on a loan application filled out by the salesman with FALSE information on income to qualify!
So it is clear to me that the so called TOO BIG TO FAIL banks have criminals managing their operations. These car loan forms are accepted with lies from salesman on income. Salesman lies to sucker on size of payment due. Customer gets the car, and gets the payment statement from bank. Yes, you thought you were poor before this car. Now, you are destitute!
Our Attorney General will extort from TOO BIG TO FAIL banks “settlements” for billions. You name the crime, and Holder happy to stop prosecution for extortion of billions. So coming in next few years will be the Attorney General acting shocked on these car scam loans. I am in favor of forcing the “Occupy Wall Street” protestors to actually WORK on helping the people robbed by car scam. Of course the protestors were fake street people paid to act upset.
US imposes restrictions on Russia to ban them access to financial transactions. This is lighting a fuse. This means the aggression and retaliation by Russia can escalate quickly and without predictability. It appears that our president is prepared to face Russia alone in retaliations to his new restrictions. Our allies are watching but not participating in this latest retaliation against Russia.
The sanction escalation by USA can lead to armed conflict suddenly. So it seems a bad idea to be reducing our military strength in soldiers as well as armaments. But we know that our president has a plan to handle Russia. He has a pen and a phone! Obama seems on schedule to ignite a global war by his inept fumbling, delaying, and strange silence to countless acts of aggression against our allies.
This would be a good time to prepare your home for the inconvenience of a global war. We won’t get hit by nuclear rockets where I live. So we will need to stock up to survive a world war. I don’t expect to welcome the Russian and Chinese military when they storm onto our shores. This might be a more serious threat than “climate change”?
It might surprise Obama and Biden that Russia and China might not answer the phone when the war starts. We could not have a more weak ineffective secretary of defense than Hagel. This crew has ridiculed and beat down real military leaders to build up LGBT gay pride events and parades. We saw how brilliant Iraq exit worked out as well as Libya meddling. They don’t know how to handle success by winning. Military won battles and wars, and White House turned it into disaster and loss. President can have Bergdahl as recruiting poster for building patriotic morale?
Texas Representative Sheila Jackson is the lollipop queen! She took a big bag of lollipops to the Texas detention camp of illegal aliens. Representative Sheila did her contribution to help these kids by passing out some lollipops! Life is so easy. Pass out lollipops and leave. Thanks for your deep commitment and compassion Sheila Jackson. Of course, she had to go on and on how she bought lollipops and handed them out. Come to the USA and get lollipops!
It’s been 60 years since the USA fell in love with Shirley Temple and her child star movies. One of the best known songs is “On the Good Ship Lollipop”. Sheila Jackson is no Shirley Temple. I can only hope Sheila did not attempt to entertain the captive audience in the detention center by singing and dancing.
Every town that gets the surprise package of illegal aliens get no advance notice. Our brilliant administration just shoves these kids around by planes and buses with no plan. At some point these kids will not be happy with just a lollipop! We can expect a mutiny if all they get are lollipops.
The depth of thought on the dimwit good hearts that welcome illegal aliens is to pass out candy lollipops. Forget about the towns overwhelmed with too many kids being dumped in their community. Forget about the idea of keeping track of where these kids are shipped. Our president purposely keeps disorganized to frustrate any attempts of repairing the damage already done.
Our country started from very humble origins. The people here were outcasts for devout Christian beliefs that did not match the state religion in England. We had indentured servants under contract to property owners in England. The wealth of the colonies was created by the hard work and personal sacrifice of pilgrims. Soon the concept of freedom began to grow, because we were enduring the hardships and surviving on our own. All we got from England were taxes and more restrictions and regulations.
Just consider our country today. We the people have patriots who are very young in our military. Our Viet Nam veterans saw their sacrifice as meaningless after the country was lost. Our Iraq veterans are seeing their sacrifice as meaningless as that country slips into chaos. Our leadership in Washington D.C. is more interested in taxes, restrictions, and regulations to tie down our citizens.
Would we ever dare to declare our Independence today? We the people stand ready. Our White House likes to talk about freedom as defined by foreign governments through the United Nations. We did not sacrifice for our family and lose loved ones in battle to preserve the UN. We are the USA.
We all are heirs of the American Revolution. We are all protectors of our Constitution and we all are proud of our Declaration of Independence. We need to celebrate the 4th of July! We need to preserve our freedoms and challenge those who claim to do our thinking for us!
It is time to remember who we are! We are free. We can’t say we want to be free. We have to fight to remain free. Don’t do us any favors by tearing down the protections of our Constitution and our Bill of Rights! I don’t care to see my rights destroyed by using a pen and a phone.
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a creation of our fearless leader dreamed up in 2012. We have a president who has a dream. Any child anywhere can wind up in the USA! He encourages dumping children here from any country. The “Arrivals” is a nice way of saying children had smuggler criminals shoving them over our border into the USA.
Once a child is legally declared an “Arrival”, then a lawyer is assigned at the expense of the USA! Now the child is a minor. So how can a lawyer speak for the minor that is not of legal age? Don’t worry about legal technicalities! Each child gets a lawyer! Our president supports due process of law for illegal aliens. Our state governors, and our citizens get steam rolled over with no say on shoving these “Arrivals” into any state at a bus stop or air port.
It would be a great humanitarian gesture to have our first lady lecture the illegal aliens on nutrition in Texas. Also her girls can volunteer to help these children adjust to handouts in the USA at these indoctrination camps. THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN!
To demonstrate the devotion of our first family to DACA Champions of Change is to have a children indoctrination camp set up in their neighborhood in Chicago. Or are these children somebody else’s problem? I love the humanitarian speeches in the abstract, but not real connection to a personal commitment. “We need to help these children!” This means YOU need to help these children while I make speeches, and then go to some billionaire fund raising party.
What the hell is a “champion of change”? Who made you champion? Our president gets to designate you a “champion of change”! Because, all of these illegal aliens got scholarships to ivy league colleges (so the college can have the approval of Obama) so these graduates can make a living telling us citizens on how to make the ideal society for them.
Hypocrisy is in full bloom as our president exudes compassion in speeches, but won’t lift a finger if it takes personal effort. How about a sleep over for 10,000 children at the White House from Texas indoctrination camp of our president? THAT WILL NEVER HAPPEN!
Al Muthanna has a chemical weapons factory captured by ISIS terrorists. This is confusing. The Democrats were laughing at Bush reason for Iraq war to prevent WMD. (How did Syria get all those chemical weapons?)
Reports of ISIS capturing a chemical weapons complex in Al Muthanna raises a lot of problems. How can Democrats claim there were no WMD, but now need to prevent ISIS from getting control of WMD that never existed? If these are imaginary weapons, how can ISIS get WMD?
The myths created by opponents of Bush seem to be crumbling. ISIS took the effort to capture this area to get more weapon superiority. The weapons of mass destruction with lethal chemicals are ugly deaths for many civilians.
The US allies in the Mideast in 1991 were relieved that Operation Desert Storm drove out Saddam Hussein from conquest of Kuwait oil fields. The Mideast allies now are extremely doubting the reliability of the USA seeing the bungled exit from Iraq. The USA that operated Desert Storm is a memory of our past. The USA that bungled the exit from Iraq is the accurate view of our administration weakness today.
Everybody seems baffled on why all these kids are coming across the border! How about asking the kids that are crammed into the USA Homeland buildings in Texas? They can talk can’t they?
The brilliant crew in the White House seem baffled and concerned on why oh why are we getting a lot of kids now? Those of us who believe fairy tales know. Grimm had a story that fits. “The Pied Piper of Hamlin”
The town was over run by rats and could not eradicate with cats or clubs to bash rat heads. Desperate to solve this infestation, they agreed to hire the Pied Piper who would lead those rats far away by his piping a tune. He was hired and promised to be paid when work done.
After his work was done, the government officials refused to pay. The Piper changed his tune. He played a tune that drew out all of the children to follow him away from town forever. The White House claims that a Pied Piper is drawing all these children across Mexico border now! Maybe South America families want to get into USA knowing kids don’t get kicked out without applying by immigration! Welcome to disease carried by kids not kept in quarantine!
President Carter had the Iran hostage crisis at the end of his presidency. Our fearless leader has left our embassy staff in Baghdad as bait for the Sunni terrorists. I wouldn’t feel real optimistic if I was in the Baghdad embassy. Remember Benghazi? Can we expect a “stand down” order for the military in the embassy to surrender? Plus we already gave away the important terrorists in the Bergdahl trade. What do have left to trade?
The Twitter campaign of Michelle for the kidnapped Nigerian school girls was very effective. Nothing has happened but everybody felt good with their Tweets holding stupid signs about bring our girls back. We can only hope that she will be just as effective on her Baghdad Twitter campaign?
For some odd reason, our NATO allies are really concerned on how the USA is again missing any meaningful or swift response. They discovered a pattern of behavior of our White House to be too deliberate. France has a lot of energy investments in Iraq. Our president still is in no rush to approve the Canada pipeline Keystone to increase oil supply in North America. It has only been 5 years in review, and repeated review, and delays on reviewing the repeated review. Canada knows that Obama pledged a swift decision for approval of pipeline in 2012 campaigning against Romney.
Anyway, our National Security Advisor Susan Rice has been oddly silent on this national security blunder. She has not shown up at every Sunday news program as she did for Benghazi killings spurred by some video nobody saw. We know that with Susan will review our experience from the Iran hostage scenario to guide our president right into another disaster.
The US military killed in Iraq and permanently disabled followed orders and gave their full measure of devotion. The military have no voice in the Security Advisor office because those folks know it all without any combat veterans help. We are waiting to learn the amount of time all the options will be reviewed and consulted with international consensus.
Our fearless leader has shared words of wisdom with us simple folk. I had to pick up a few of these words because they are pearls worth keeping!
We have not heard these words recently; “shovel ready jobs”? I am not sure why he has abandoned these well worn words. When people look for employment, I always look under SHOVEL. The historians may find it odd that this president in the 21st century talks of job skills from the 18th century.
We know that our president wants everyone to know that he will never put “boots on the ground”! Since BO is the architect on our departure from Iraq, he can say we do not have boots on the ground anymore. Wait a minute! Terrorists on Jihad are over running Iraq right now! So all the money spent, all the wounded and dead from the USA is just sand in the desert.
WAIT A MINUTE! Joe Biden wants to be heard. We don’t know why but Joe said IRAQ foreign policy is the greatest achievement of President Obama. On February 11, 2010 Joe on television was crowing on what they have done in Iraq. It might be time to eat crow. A lot of the families who lost over 4,200 sons and daughters probably will wonder if these deaths are a cruel betrayal by our government. Now Joe is talking about sending troops BACK INTO IRAQ after they lost the country?! Does that mean the dreaded phrase “boots on the ground”?
For some odd reason Obama was talking about fox holes today. He thinks Aussies are great fighters, and welcome Aussies into his fox hole. Kind of bizarre comment, and I can’t imagine Obama inviting soldiers into his fox hole! So we think the English and Canadian soldiers are not welcome into his fox hole?
IF we do go back into Iraq, now that the country is lost, then Obama will declare the exit date right now when we are leaving. That is a great way to win a war! He is a military genius, in his own mind.
The policies and the priorities of our White House are scaring a lot of us citizens. Children are being dumped into our country, and we are keeping them?! Our jobless “recovery” focused contracts and regulations helping companies of wealthy lobbyists. We set a record on our military dead and wounded under Obama rules of engagement in combat. Oh yeah, we turn over killers from our 9/11/2001 attack back to Taliban!
Professional politicians know the problems are so complex, that we simple folk can’t understand the stupid laws and the dumb failures of government. After a while, we just get tired of being told that we can’t understand why we do not get the government we want. Even the alternative groups like Tea Party thought Brat had NO CHANCE to oust Cantor. Brat just kept plugging along with local folks to claim their right to representation.
I salute the voters in Virginia. I welcome Brat changing the election debate. We are not forced to endorse “hope and change” or “reform immigration” as the priorities of government. We know the problems in the USA are created by the laws and the regulations recently added to “help us”. We don’t need the government to help us. We need the government to STOP HURTING USA!
Commercial news media, and the smart political “experts” ignored Brat. Cantor was going to win according to the folks in the know. Well, the political power brokers don’t know WE THE PEOPLE in the USA anymore! You can ignore WE THE PEOPLE. You can claim WE THE PEOPLE are stupid. However, WE THE PEOPLE know when the ship of state is going nowhere.
We don’t need slogans. We need choices and a review on the excess of government wasting our tax money.
This month of June in the year of our Lord 2014, the USA has eliminated the jobs lost 5 years ago. No parade or celebrations are planned. We have added 10 million new working citizens in those 5 years. We need 10 million more jobs and we still have unemployment over 6%.
Lets put this in perspective. An old retired actor inherited the Carter recession and had replaced all jobs lost in 11 months. Let me use the new punch line of Democrats Clinton and Reid; “What’s the difference?!” To answer the problem of our recession now, our president Obama had his brilliant college professors try to help the recovery. Remember his “Jobs Czar” that disappeared without a ripple of notice? Remember the stimulus that would add Obama’s archaic “shovel ready jobs”? After 5 years his meddling made it worse! President Reagan doing nothing more than tax cuts killed unemployment in 11 months. (Oh yeah, he got our hostages released from Iran without releasing terrorists held in jail!)
So what we already know, the USA would be better off if we kept our president on permanent vacation and golfing. We don’t need a pep rally class president. We need a president like Reagan. He wasn’t perfect, but he never was arrogant and he did negotiate with all political opponents before a new policy went into effect.
We hugged and bid farewell to our soldier son as he shipped out to join up with his 32nd Division shipping out from Wisconsin. He was bound for Texas for shortened orientation since he was deemed combat ready. He did get to practice escaping out of a bombed Humvee as part of necessary training before shipping out. This was start of 2009 for our family.
He got adopted by some combat veterans at base and subjected to some rowdy off base escapades before shipping out. Baghdad used to be a far away place until the USA decided to keep us safe at home by sending troops far away. Like a lot of young enlisted (19 years old), Marc volunteered to protect our nation since the 9/11/2001 attack on the USA. I never thought the battles would still be going in 2008 when he enlisted.
Marc is very friendly and makes a lot of friends. He loved scouting, and the high adventure camps of mountain climbing and canoe. He was not eager to go to Iraq, but he did go and as most things went in 100%. He took his laptop to Skype home, take on line college courses, and his running shoes. He loves to run. His assignment was at Green Zone headquarters administrative staff for a Colonel. The Colonel liked to run.
7 days of 12 hours was the norm, and sometimes more hours. Army life is not for weak or soft folks.
There was a Taliban suicide bomber who tried to kill a few at Green Zone. It was an old Japanese pick up truck. The bomb did not explode, but the Taliban did get to die as he wished. Most of us in USA are wise guys. They kept the truck to run errands. (Explosives were removed.)
Marc never drove a stick shift. He got to learn how to drive a Taliban suicide bomber truck. Then he would take the ride to the Baghdad airport to deliver or pick up military visitors for Green Zone. The truck was less of a target than a Humvee, and Marc had fun with a junky truck.
The Green Zone was heavily guarded but it was not 100% safe. Just after Marc’s tour of duty was done, one of his buddies died with a RPG shot into their base tower.
Marc was glad to do stuff to break up the routine of 100 degree days and cold desert nights. Truck errands, volunteering to guard prisoners to get out of the office, and a lot of running. He was in top finishers of a crazy run through obstacles and then target practice. It was called “The Desert Cup” and I think it was red Solo cup.
Anyway, I was just thinking of his luck after seeing more news about this Bergdahl soldier. Marc never walked away. I am proud of him and his buddies who protect us. We need military leadership to instill the same attitude in our young 19 year old enlisted military today.
Can we expect our fearless leader to be a horse trader? So why now do the Taliban types want to negotiate? Or did they keep making offers all along and this moment was selected by Obama? How did we get the negotiating done? Did the CIA station chief in the Afghanistan visit confirm the details of this deal? CIA chief can’t say, because he is now in hiding after Obama staff revealed his identity.
The Gitmo 5 probably cost USA $200,000 per year in cost of confinement. So it is a saving to military budget. Taliban spent $25 per year for keeping Sgt. Bergdahl. So why now?
It seems odd that president had to break our laws to make “such a deal”. Of course, our laws do not apply to our president. This president praises “international law” and makes international treaties trampling our USA law.
The father of Bergdahl vowed to free all from Gitmo and spouts Sharia Law nonsense too. This whole deal stinks. Our president could not wait one day to consult with Congress?
Environmental Protection Agency has some new regulations to take over every piece of property in USA! If it rains by your home on any day, then you do not have any say on your own home? YES! If there is any rain water at any time on your property, then you needs permits from the EPA to do anything! Absurd lunacy is what I see in our current White House. EPA needs to save rain water from every home owner polluting and poisoning our water! I could not dream up this joke, but I do suggest that all rain water should be collected and sent to EPA bureaucrats to drown themselves.
Permit process to get approval or denial on installing a bird bath can take 10 years and thousands of dollars in permit hearings. That is water torture to drive away property rights of every home owner.
There are Senate and Congressional hearings to be held. I am contacting both my Representative and my Senators so they know that my financial support and vote depend on them killing this EPA lunacy! Get with this too, unless you welcome EPA oversight on your home.
The Millennial generation are at a stage of life to take charge. They know the lies, empty promises, and problems that are challenging them on a daily basis. They are beginning to discover the failures of those elected to lead our country.
The problem is that our current leadership has no foundation in values that do not shift with public opinion. The moral compass that guides each one of us is not based on popularity polls. Anyone who lives their life to be “popular” is on a fool’s errand. A real leader will not appease, pretend to be ignorant of failures, or only pretend to take charge when the polls show the public question his leadership.
If you listen to speeches of our president, then you don’t know there is a millennial generation in our country. These are the leaders and foundation of our future. These are the ignored and patronized citizens who do not merit much attention of our president.
This is the generation that has volunteered in military service and faced combat in response to the 9/11/2001 attack on the USA. My son and his buddies have been in combat. My son has lost buddies in battle. My son has buddies that have lost limbs and are struggling to adjust with what they experienced in battle.
I am tired of the endless focus on baby boomers. We have had the limelight longer than needed. Our future are my sons and their buddies. The strength of our economy to provide growth in product and innovations needs to be helped instead of tied down with EPA, OSHA, IRS, and meddling by amateurs in Washington D.C. Our country can have dynamic growth. GET OUT OF OUR WAY trying to help with more laws!?
Now is the time to recognize the vitality of our future relies upon millennial aged couples and families.
Our country has a great generation that faced war, economic hardships, and a grim future at this point. We don’t need speeches. We need to take action to help and support this great generation. I am proud of my sons and their buddies. They are entitled to have fun and see promise in their future! They are entitled to enjoy life, and have hope!
President of Ukraine is newly elected Petro Poroshenko. The voting was done on Sunday, so everyone could vote without missing work. (Is this a novel concept for USA to consider?) On Monday the military are fighting back to reclaim Donetsk International Airport from the so called “insurgents”. They don’t live in Ukraine and came from Russia, but they are called “insurgents”.
It is evident that President Poroshenko has started the military to drive out the Russian military and the “insurgents”. The conquest of Kiev by Russia is a powder keg problem that is more than explosive. Our president may need to make a decision on our relationship with Ukraine a little quicker than the Keystone Pipeline 5 year delay.
Considering the financial challenges essential to the success of Ukraine, this new president is uniquely qualified and understands international investment world. This could be equally to the advantage of the USA if we had Mitt Romney as our president right now. But of course, Romney could not fight the commercial news media conspiracy to silence him, and Romney did try to expose Obama’s lies to mislead the voters.
The people in the USA know that our president is waiting to learn more by what he learns in the news. We have learned to wait, and wait on seeing any response to a real problem from our president. We have to be patient and wait, just like those who died in the VA system waiting.
Putin may not be so patient on seeing Ukraine challenge his incursion into stealing the country of Poroshenko. Poroshenko probably won’t wait for a clear signal from the USA. We all saw in the news how Syria, Iran, and our mission in Benghazi were handled by our fearless leader.
On May 2, in the year of our Lord 2000, our President William Jefferson Clinton signed a resolution passed by our senators and representatives.
“In this time of unprecedented success and prosperity throughout our
land, I ask that all Americans come together to recognize how fortunate
we are to live in freedom and to observe a universal “National Moment
of Remembrance” on each Memorial Day. This memorial observance
represents a simple and unifying way to commemorate our history and
honor the struggle to protect our freedoms.”
Unfortunately, we are not enjoying “unprecedented success and prosperity” in our land. We all know the problems of our neighbors, relatives, and our families face as obstacles to our future prosperity. Regardless, we understand that the price paid by those in service to protect our country demand honor and respect. We cannot ignore, forget, or insult the sacrifice made and the price paid by previous generations and the current millennial generation.
Please take the time to celebrate the strength of our citizens to endure, persevere, and sacrifice for the future of our country and all our citizens. The resolution asks that all across the USA at 3:00 P.M. local time each citizen stop their activities to reflect, remember, and think of all those who gave of themselves in our armed services.
So before the Memorial Day weekend, buy a VFW poppy, or stop for a few beers at the local Legion Hall, or donate a few bucks to the USO. None of us can adequately repay for all the sacrifices made on our behalf. Any small measure is worth more than all the speeches by politicians over the holiday.
I am grateful that my father came back from WWII, and my older brother came back from Viet Nam, and my oldest son came back from Iraq. Don’t forget to keep pestering your representative in congress on getting VA services to those in need. After the spot light is off, that is when we need to keep pushing. We have services delayed and denied in the application process that is like Chinese water torture and a back log of over 500,000 veterans waiting just to be eligible for benefits.
Our president can be congratulated on Eric Holder sending illegal weapons to the Mexican drug cartel killers into Mexico! Mexico is arming their own militia with government automatic weapons for ranchers and farmers to kill drug cartel. The farmers and ranchers might kill some folks by mistake, but the blood bath by drug cartel has to be stopped somehow!
The USA Homeland Security team has their hands tied by our current president. It’s time to let the armed militia along the border work just like the ranchers and farmers on the Mexican side of border! Homeland Security have their arms tied and blindfolds on them by our government. It’s time to let the citizens of USA on the border protect their security.
Eric Holder seems preoccupied investigating the killers from Benghazi, and the IRS persecution of TEA party organizations. We can make his job easier by taking over this nuisance job so he’s not distracted.
The drug cartel mask themselves in a religious name “knights Templar” from the Catholic Crusades. The drug group “knights” are killers without a soul and have no connection to the Catholic church. Of course our commercial news media will be confused and report the drug killers as a Catholic group, I’m sure.
Green Bay Wisconsin represents the best of our country. The people here are hard working, and expect to get paid well. The infamous Koch brothers who own the Georgia Pacific paper products company have come to learn this. They wanted to reduce the highly paid work force and reduce investments for updating the very old equipment. Guess what? The people here have the plants humming and setting efficiency output that beats state of art mechanized wonders in southern states. After paying MORE for the labor rates, and the extra shipping expense to distribute, the delivered product is still cheaper. They are increasing investment in Green Bay because you can’t beat success!
We got hard working, and smart working folks. We won’t work cheap, but you get your money’s worth here. Anyway, the Green Bay Packers organization reflects our personality here. Curly Lambeau is a legend. He was a innovator in football. He is beloved despite his personal flaws because he was stubborn enough to keep pushing professional football from very humble beginnings. The ACME PACKERS were sponsored by a meat packing company. Green Bay is a major butcher center for cattle because we like to eat steaks and bacon out here!
The new Lambeau Field is awesome, but not awesome enough. A major expansion and improvements on this new Packers field is underway. We went to Curly’s Pub last night for a celebration. Marcus left Big Sky Resort after working the season with 2 of his new buddies who worked with him. Ben from New Zealand and Bob from Long Island stopped in Green Bay to see “Titletown” USA! Of course we invited them to dinner for Green Bay version of Wisconsin food & beer.
You get a lot of food no matter what you order. You get Wisconsin food and no apologies. I ordered a couple of baskets of fried cheese curds with marinara sauce. Of course some Wisconsin brewed beers are mandatory! Try a Tailgater; Half pound hamburger with bratwurst on top and huge order of French fries. Try a Farmhouse; Half pound hamburger with Canadian bacon and fried egg. These guys can eat a lot, but they met their match with these meals that had them crying uncle! We haven’t seen Marc for over a year. He looks like a mountain man, because he is one!
Did I mention we don’t spend a lot of money out here in Green Bay? You could say we don’t waste money. Fed 6 of us with beers for $120. Great service, great food, great beer for less money. You got to visit here.
Ben will hang out in New York before returning to New Zealand. Marc will work for a few months in a bar that Bob works at on Long Island. Then Marc heads out to California with his army buddies that need him as a physical assistant to help them due to war injuries. Marc returned from Iraq with no war wounds. He will be surfing by Santa Cruz and going to college with his army buddies.
We common folk are too simple minded to understand. Our fearless leader always adjusts the facts to help us absorb his vast wisdom. He wants to help us, even as he lets many die and suffer by his lack of attention. We should feel sympathy that the burden of saving the world is too much for our president.
Obama did have some interesting top members selected to protect our country for National Security. “Dude, that was 2 years ago!” The “dude” did explain that our president NEVER made an appearance in the situation room during the Benghazi assault on our citizens.
The truth will be found now with Congressman Trey Gowdy. This process will show the country that the law applies to everyone equally! The dead will not be forgotten.
Baseball is America’s game! The majority of boys and girls continue to grow up playing some baseball on park team or just pick up games at park. The baseball fans in Wisconsin are stunned! National League Brewers are leading their Central Division in April!
The players are to be congratulated on their efforts. One of the great human interest stories started during Spring training. A hungry and hurt little dog wandered by the Phoenix ball field of the Brewers on Feb. 17. That’s how things go in life. Down and out but never giving up, the little dog and the Brewers both want to have a great year! They both are so far!
The team adopted the dog, and he is a darling of the baseball fans. The children especially love to see Hank. The “Hank House” is in Miller Field with a meet and greet area for children to meet Hank. He is a lucky dog, and gave good luck to the team.
Little miracles happen all around us. It just takes some small dogs to get big results!
The Bureau of Land Management handling of a land dispute with rancher Bundy has made national news. What saddens me more, are the related stories coming to light on property being stolen by BLM. BLM made no payment to land “owner”, and the best is fines and levies owners HAVE TO PAY!
Rand Paul has spoken eloquently on a few anecdotes in Kentucky state conflict with federal BLM. Land management is now more like confiscation? Restrictions bind states from proceeding with state projects. BLM can haul state land owners into federal court?
This happened under our noses for the last 20 years. We were deaf dumb and blind to these federal swindles from land owners. The commercial news media does not want to get their fancy costumes dusty by actually visiting where Bundy ranches. FOX news did report from Nevada alone.
“Eminent domain” by federal government claims they are protecting desert tortoise. Federal preserve is killing off overpopulation of desert tortoise right now! BLM hired crew killed off brutally cattle of Bundy. WHY destroy cattle? We are stewards of our country and what rancher shoots up his cattle? The water pipes and water tanks were ruined but left as junk on the federal property by their hired help!
From fighting WW II to leading our country through the cold War with Russia, we have been blessed to have Dwight Eisenhower serving our country. We can’t live in the past. We need leadership and we don’t need a genius as our president. We need a person with courage!
We know what our problem is today. We don’t have a leader with courage and we don’t have a leader. We see China challenging Japan to claim more territory China covets. We see Russia laughing at us by their nonsense answers to our protests on invasion of Ukraine. We know Iran will get nuclear weapons with the help of North Korea.
My sons don’t need to fight WW III because we have no leader with courage. If China, Russia, North Korea, and Iran choose to test us before our new president gets elected, then we are in peril! I am praying that we can avoid another world war by our cowardly retreat.
The conquest of Crimea by Russia is complete. Now Russia is picking portions of Ukraine to liberate. The armed forces in Ukraine and on borders of Ukraine are estimated over 60,000 troops from Russia in uniform. Of course the citizens with ski masks and body armor are thousands in number and they might be Russian. Now the sleeping giant of the USA starts to stir!
We are going to have some military exercises in Poland and Estonia to flex our muscles. This will intimidate the inferior Russian Army by showing off the superior US Army! Obama has issued orders for 150 soldiers to display our military prowess! That is a reassuring demonstration on the depth of our resolve to protect our treaty allies! 150 soldiers against 60,000 Russian troops is hilarious! Obama sent over 150 armed federal forces to the Bundy grazing land dispute! And that was to face ranchers protesting!? I am so glad my son is not in active army right now. Our fearless leader has agreed to issue bullets too for these 150 soldiers! Do they have 60,000 bullets?
I hope that our commercial news media joins our troops for these military exercises! There will be more equipment from the television stations than our troops will have to show off our superior army. Putin will be very cautious now with our strong demonstration of military power. “Rapid Trident 2014″ will take place in July. Putin will wait to be scared on this blatant threatening military exercise of US power!
What is this compulsion to grin like an idiot and stick your face in front of a camera? Why does the president have to wave and smile in every damn gathering of world leaders? Biden and Obama (B.O.) have to be running for prom king or something like that. They have a compulsion that needs clinical help.
When in the grocery store, do you feel obliged to smile and wave to the butcher behind the counter? When at the gas station, do you wave and smile into the security camera? Why does Obama think we need millions of pictures of him smiling and waving? What’s the point? At least Putin has pictures riding nude on a horse or grappling in the Dojo!
It is our burden to endure Dumb and Dumber that demand we look at their grinning mugs. Glad they are smiling, because nobody else thinks we are a happy nation. How about a parade through Detroit celebrating their self destruction with socialist planning?
Democrats have legions of zombie voters. They are not dead, but they are not alive either. The zombies do not have identification cards. They have zombie helpers that are from the former ACORN community organization. Voting rights for dead people is very considerate!
If you want to collect any government benefits, then you need to show up with identification? Is that discriminating? Anyway, it is great that the dead can still be useful to elect Democrats with absentee votes and proxies’ voters. How about only allowing people to vote that can show up with a tax return they filed?
It is a voodoo ritual to bring back the dead to vote for Democrats!
It was funny to see the wealthy Democrat backers have the bums given cigarettes and beer to get bussed over to vote in Milwaukee in 2012. Of course illegal immigrants deserve their right to vote for more benefits too!
The photography of Jay Carney and his family with Claire Shipman is political staging. The prominent visibility of his communist posters in his home seems to pay homage only to Russian propaganda. What’s wrong with Chairman Mao?
Please note that his son is showing off his prowess at making breakfast, with the staged artificial expressions of mom and sister. I especially like the kitchen island overflowing with all types of food that would feed several families of their comrades. But worse, the pajamas don’t even have a wrinkle? Did they sleep in sack cloth, and then change into luxurious pajamas to show off?
The Soviet poster for comrades to join the army to kill capitalists is heart warming. We hope his children are studying Lenin and Stalin writings. Why wasn’t the Saul Alinsky book RULES FOR RADICALS prominently on display?
These photos are so staged they are the worst propaganda. These pictures are funnier than Chairman Mao swimming the Yang Tze River at age 80.
Attorney General Eric Holder has done nothing worth mentioning while in office. It was nice of him to caution Congressman Louie Gomert to avoid trouble and “Don’t go there, buddy!” It was nice to be considered a buddy by the Attorney General. Friends like him I don’t need.
Louie is still anxiously waiting for information requested on Eric’s deadly operation known as “Fast & Furious”. Hey Louie, it’s only been a few years! Eric needs more time to do nothing. The guns distributed illegally to criminals by Attorney General have killed hundreds of Mexicans and one of our public servants. The president of Mexico suspected the guns were shipped by USA but of course our president denied any responsibility for what Eric does.
So Louie reminded Eric that he was cited in contempt of Congress, and the delays on requested material just confirm Eric ignores Congress as a pesky fly. My goodness, Holder cautioned Louie not to go there! It is an honor and privilege to rate a warning from the imperial Attorney General.
The IRS investigation is underway by Attorney General and no progress report. The Fast & Furious investigation was done and closed but the information if still being tracked down to release. There is no problem with the murders of our staff in Benghazi because he is not tracking down the killers.
Congressman Gomert knows he is not a “buddy” of do nothing Holder. Holder doesn’t like getting prodded to do his job by Gomert. Louie just wants his “buddy” Eric to do some work for once.
The battles of good versus evil from WWII were in the 1st Captain America movie. There was a lot of carnage, and the action led to the personal sacrifice chosen by Captain America to save the country he loved. The movie ended with Captain Rogers revived in our world today as a member of SHIELD.
The Winter Soldier movie has darker under currents at work that match our current events in the USA. Government secret agencies have operations that seem to promote our safety but are actually threats to our rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. The millennial generation can relate to the animosity of Captain America to anything tainted with perverting the basic rights of our freedom. Just trust the experts and don’t question their need for secrecy in protecting the USA is NOT justified.
The carnage in this movie is massive. However, the violence in the world today exceeds the violence and dangers most people would want to witness. What I especially connected is the personal suffering and post traumatic stress disorder issues met head on for our veterans today. Captain Rogers connects with a group of veterans coming to grips with surviving excessive combat experiences.
We can share the concerns of massive government funding of superficial patriotic projects that undermine and subvert our principles of freedom and justice. This movie has the right of civil disobedience to protect our liberties by battling against those subverting our rights through the use of our government resources to fund the subversion.
This movie has very intense action but does not lose the most important virtues of love, devotion, and friendship. The millennial generation of today does not trust our government and they are not paranoid. They see the truth that too many don’t want to get involved to protect our rights.
I see this movie as great entertainment, and an affirmation that the audience for this movie connect with Captain America challenging the power structure in the USA.
Now with marketing of Easter in full swing, you see advertising chocolate rabbits and cartoons of funny looking rabbits dressed up. Not many of the children today ever heard of the rabbit attack on our president! Children need to learn that rabbits are not cute fuzzy little cuddly toys. They are dangerous and can attack!
My wife was very upset about a rabbit that was hiding on our property and always stealing her garden’s work by nibbling and stealing our vegetables. Our neighbor’s beagle chased the rabbit from under our gazebo and devoured the rabbit. The rabbit was gone, except for the head left lying near the gazebo. We celebrated the good work of the beagle!
Anyway, President Jimmy Carter was on a fishing expedition in the South and heard the coon hounds baying and chasing something through heavy woods. He was floating on his small fishing boat with his trusty casting rod fishing for his dinner. Suddenly the chase ended at the shore line as the hounds were howling in frustration as their prey jumped into the water. A fierce rabbit was paddling directly to President Carter! We don’t know if the rabbit was a Democrat or a Republican. We do know that suddenly our president recognized the danger he faced.
Since Jimmy reduced oil and gasoline supplies in the USA, he used oars on his boat. He grabbed an oar to whack the rabbit getting closer and closer to his boat. The Secret Service could not kill the rabbit without endangering Jimmy with bullets flying. Plus they were too busy laughing at Jimmy battling a rabbit shark.
Parents should insist that school children not be fooled and misled to think rabbits are cute and cuddly creatures. They will steal your food from the garden. They will attack a president. We need to take bunnies out of Easter folk lore. What the hell is the biological proof that bunnies lay eggs? The only thing bunnies manufacture is more bunnies and rabbit balls. We are proud and grateful that Jimmy Carter, who failed as a president, did fight off a swimming rabbit!
Once again, the general public of the USA will watch our government treat General Motors as above the law. Our national transportation safety agency review process in Washington D.C. ignored the accident and death reports on the now infamous “ignition switch” failure. So the nameless faceless bureaucrats are not held accountable for failures on performance of duty.
Our administration never holds anyone accountable, until elections are coming near. So the new head of GM hires the ultimate insider of Washington that is a personal favorite of Obama, Ken Feinberg. Feinberg distributed some of the $20,000,000,000 from BP oil damages.
So the crumpled cars, dead drivers, and the deaths were not counted as GM defect. I know a lady that lost a son driving a Cobalt in a single car accident 3 years ago. She contacted GM asking why the air bag would not have worked when his car went off a road and impacted the ditch. She never got an answer. He is not listed as killed by vehicle defect. If his car was running, the air bag would have deployed. If his car was dead while rolling down the road by ignition switch failure, then the air bag is dead. He died.
We the tax payers bailed out GM because Obama wanted their union votes. Bond holders lost their money on bankrupt bonds. Union didn’t lose a nickel on pay or benefits. Now, tax payers are dead from car defect from GM. Well, that was defect from bankrupt filing GM so too bad. It’s fuzzy on liability of GM after bail out. What’s clear, is that GM will spend a fortune to avoid criminal prosecution on the dead drivers.
The Ken Feinberg addition to GM ensures a smooth conduit to Eric Holder, and all the powerbrokers in the Obama administration to avoid prosecution. It will cost money, but will justice be done? How about the $20,000,000,000 slush fund of Obama fine money? How much went to those harmed? How much is just floating around the Obama crew? No answers, no reports, and nobody bothers to report.
The discussion on minimum wage employees pay scale included an interesting observation of billion Bill Gates. His opinion is that escalating minimum wage will accelerate digital and robot replacements. Excuse me for laughing at this stupidity of Gates.
On line direct digital activity for banking, retail shopping, investing, reading, etc. has nothing to do with replacing minimum wage people. We have become a 24 hour anytime of day, any day of year instant service addicts. I can wait for a store to open to check out and see merchandise in person. I can wait for my credit union to open to go to a teller.
Automated Tell Machines (ATM) are everywhere and the millennial generation grew up only knowing these machines. The point is that people expect and demand convenience and services at anytime and any day.
People that do manual work will not be replaced by automated robots to counter higher wages. Automation takes place to increase production using robotic welding, robotic warehouses, and robot assembly lines. Convenience store clerks, and food service help have use of digital tools but replacing by a robot makes no economic sense.
Anyway, it seems funny that the justification to keep people working is to keep low wages. OR BE REPLACED BY A MACHINE! Bill you are a dimwit and seem oddly connected to Luddites’ thinking! If McDonald’s sells billions of burgers in a year, you can be assured McDonald’s has investigated robotic applications where economically feasible. Your billionaire bridge player buddy Buffet and you know McDonald’s because you guys always eat there during tournaments!
Our fearless leader sent his pit bull with lipstick to China. (Apologies to Sarah Palin for stealing her hockey mom joke from 2008 campaign.) This picture looks like the Vulcan “live long and prosper” hand sign from Michelle. Obama is a brilliant husband. His mother in law and daughters all have left home! Now he can finally golf, and watch the NCAA with all the pizza and beer he wants and no bitching!
China cannot thank the USA enough for sending them more guests to entertain from White House! I hope Michelle sticks her nose in the kitchen to tell the cooks what she wants. Her dog might be the main course if she’s not careful.
China might be confused on why she is there. It would have been more of a bold move to send them to Russia for Putin to entertain! That might be more powerful than the lame sanctions Obama set out for Putin attacking Ukraine.
I am personally grateful there was a media censorship on this trip. I have Obama fatigue. I don’t want to watch his family too! It would be interesting to see how many people in China will be forced to show up and pretend they’re happy to see Michelle.
We are a country that loves to sing. From the church hymns & gospel music inspiring Aretha Franklin’s love of song, to hip hop & rap music; we the people find strength in music together. Right now, we know the same old song coming from the White House.
There is nothing more awesome than hearing the whole church sing together AMAZING GRACE! Our president claims to be a fan of music but he does not bother to even try getting Congress & Senate agree to sing together!
We are hungry for some sweet music! We are tired of the excuses why nobody wants to sing together anymore in Washington D.C. When I was a kid my parents watched Mitch Miller show on CBS and I would watch it too even though it wasn’t my favorite music. He was not a singer. He chose music for a chorus of men and women to sign together from the American songbook.
How much longer do we have to keep hearing the yelling and name calling in Washington D.C.? The most repeated song titles are; “You Didn’t Build That”, “Fair Shot Fair Share”, “I Got a Pen and a Phone”, and “Shovel Ready Jobs”.
Nothing would make the country happier than laughing at how bad they sing together, but we love the songs anyway! How about some Pete Seeger songs from the old Hootenanny days?
Riding my bike during the summer was one of my major past times as a grade school kid. When I was 9 it was a really hot summer! I got an allowance of a quarter every week. A popsicle for $0.07 was very refreshing on a hot day after riding my bike.
Being a true American, I never saved a dime. So I got an inspiration! After riding on a very hot afternoon, I pedaled up the front entrance of our local drug store in area of Midway airport. (At that time, Midway was the world’s busiest airport!) I looked for a popsicle out of the glass slide top freezer next to the front counter. Mr. Hayden went to our church St. Camillus and my older brother was same age as his youngest son. He had 3 older housewives from neighborhood working at the counters.
I fished out a lime popsicle without any coins in my pocket. I marched up to the counter. “Could I pay for this popsicle on Monday when I get my allowance?” I think she was stunned that a kid would want a credit account. At the same time, she was a mom! She smiled and said ok. There was no ledger and no note at the counter. She just gave me license to steal, if I was a crook.
With sweat still pouring down my head, I marched out and swung onto my bike with a ice cold popsicle. I had to work on it fast because it was starting to melt in the hot sun. It was a double stick popsicle, so I had 2 more sticks for my collection.
I built some bridges out sticks. Martha Stewart (of course) has website projects for popsicle sticks and none of my projects were saved by my mom!? Oh well, they weren’t done very well.
So I pedaled there on Monday to pay for my popsicle, and check over their latest comic books. I would usually make a mental check list of which comic books I had to buy! Then I would wait for an opening after supper, to tell my parents about a great comic book I saw at Mr. Hayden’s store. My dad would have me walk with him to buy his Chicago Daily News and yes, I picked up Mad Magazine or a comic book.
My folks lived paycheck to paycheck after buying a Chicago bungalow house in 1953. I never knew anything about their struggles and challenges as a kid. That’s the way they wanted it. I knew we weren’t rich, but I didn’t care.
