The Old Country Boy’s Rules for Fighting a Skunk are as follows:

#1: Pick a young skunk

#2: Make sure he is downwind

#3: Get a 12-gauge double-barreled shotgun loaded with double ought shells.

#4: Better still, get a 30:06 with a scope. You can stand further away from the skunk.

#5: On second thought, don’t pick a fight with a skunk. There’s a good chance something will go wrong and you’ll lose and end up with a pocket full of stink.

The above rules apply equally well for dealing with most liberal politicians and Barack Obama.

THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER

Two Different Versions! …………….. Two Different Morals!

OLD VERSION: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long,

building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.

The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.

The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!

And now for the MODERN version…

The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.

Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.

CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?

Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green.’

Acorn stages a demonstration in front of the ant ‘s house where the news stations film the group singing, ‘We shall overcome.’

Rev. Jeremiah Wright then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper’s sake.

Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back ofthe grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.

Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar.

The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ants food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around him because he doesn’t maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow.

The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.

MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2012.

Nancy Pelosi has indeed jumped out of the proverbial frying pan, and into the fire. In her recent news conference Thursday, one brave reporter had the unmitigated gall to ask her if she was going to produce evidence of accusations that “the CIA Lied”. Taking a cue from Kabuki Theater and Bill Clinton, an obviously flustered Madame Speaker, dodged and attempted redirection. She stands behind her statement. She is not going to answer any more questions.

Typical of Democrats in trouble, she labeled the questions regarding her accusations as a “distractive mood”. By Monday, this will be considered old news. We might even hear “We need to move past all this divisiveness,” first by the talking heads of the MSM, then by her highness herself. The Democrats are amazing at turning bad news about fellow Democrats into uninteresting old stories, then turning those into myths.

Pelosi, and her fellow Liberals, honestly believe that these kind of statements do not mean anything. Lies are just as valid as the truth, and myths are the equivalent of history. This allows them to insert either lies or truths whenever it suits them politically. Like a child playing with Lego blocks, the mismatching pieces will not deter them from their overall goal – more power.

To say that this is frustrating would be an understatement. How do you argue with someone for which a legend can be supplanted for the authoritative on a whim? Reasonable people would throw their hands up in defeat within minutes. This tactic has allowed the Democrats to win most arguments by default, and it is repeated consistently to their joy. It must not be allowed.

While I do not know the legal details, it would seem to me that there must be some repercussions available to both the CIA and the House Republicans. Bold faced lies, especially those which are so detrimental, cannot be tolerated. Surely this series of events is actionable. Thursday, Representative Steve King (R-IA), read a privileged resolution into the House record. The resolution calls for the Speaker to lose her security clearance. This should be the minimum action taken, and I would add that censure be called for as well.

“If the Speaker is unable or unwilling to provide evidence to support her allegation, that she and Congress have been lied to by the CIA, the American people will be left with no choice but to conclude that she made this allegation for political purposes,” King concluded. “Until her allegations are proven, she should not receive sensitive or classified information pertaining to the national security interests of the United States.”

We can only hope that California’s voters, when next given the choice, remember that their representative in Nancy Pelosi is a known liar, and therefore cannot be trusted. This prevarication cannot be allowed to morph into a myth. Words must mean things and untruths and slanderous statements must have consequences.

Gomer T. Cambell here, RedDot’s neighbor. He was showing me his blog, and I thought, “heck, well I can do that!” So he’s giving me a shot, much obliged. Now, I don’t reckon I have as much learning as he does, but I got me more sense than any of those Washington types, and we ain’t talking rocket science.  I promised I’d keep it clean since ladies read this stuff too, and my mamma raised me never to cuss in front of a woman.  I also promised I wouldn’t let my mouth overload my tail, so here goes.

We was drinking a beer and talking today about government spending all our money on useless stuff, when RedDot told me about some program to spend almost $3 million dollars to teach Chinese hookers to drink responsibly. You heard me right.  I said, “Huh, you got to be kidding me, show me.” (well, what I really said I can’t put in here, but you get the idea). So he did. Here’s the link if you want to read about it. I about fell out the lawn chair! Yep, seems them Chinese hookers can’t hold their beer and then wind up getting AIDS ’cause they’re too drunk to tell their trick to slap a rubber on their willy.  So now some high sounding National Institute of something or other has to help them out. Heck, I’m pretty sure that’s how most of our mommas got knocked up!

Why are we spending my hard earned money on the Chinese! Ain’t we got enough things to spend money on right here? All this stimulus money out there somewhere is supposed to be helping our country. We don’t spend money like this on our own hookers! If they can’t drink and ride safely that’s their own problem. If AIDS is spreading in China ’cause their men can’t keep it in their pants, that’s the Chinese Government’s problem. It’s not like their short on funds, you know what I mean? We’ve just been buying up all that garbage them damn commies keep making for years. Let them spend their own money. Keeping kids in Africa from getting Malaria, that I can get behind, so don’t make me out to be some heartless SOB, but this is dumber than a squirrel in the road.

The other end of this mule is this, why spend any money at all. All you need is to force their adult beverage industry to make commercials showing some hottie hooker wrapping up her customers and the problem will be solved directly. I mean, who wouldn’t watch that? It’s educational, and entertaining! All our beer commercials here keep telling us not to drink and drive, how hard can this be? If that don’t work, add a warning to the beer bottles and magazine ads and even put it on the billboards. Those liquor makers are in a commie country – so just make ’em put it on everything. Government here didn’t have to spend a dime to get cigarette makers to warn us all of the coming health apocalypse if we didn’t all quit immediately. ‘Course, don’t see that working to well neither, I still smoke like a chimney…so maybe that’s a bad example, but you get my point.

So you folks in Washington, quit spending money I could use for beer on stupid stuff, your just a sorry bunch of good for nothin SOB’s. Y’all just remember the sun don’t shine on the same dog’s tail all the time.  Don’t make me come up there and straighten you out.

It widely known that California has moths in it’s pockets. The state is virtually bankrupt, even after receiving almost $7 billion in stimulus money from the American taxpayer. Last year, everyone knew the state was in trouble, but it took until February for Governor Schwarzenegger and the State Legislators to agree on a new budget which closed a $42 billion spending gap.

Part of the new budget involved $13 billion in new or higher taxes, and $15 billion in total spending cuts, including $8.6 billion in cuts to public education. $1.4 billion was also cut from state payroll costs. Part of that budget was to go into effect immediately, while other sections had to wait until July 1st. Just as an aside, last time I checked, $13 billion plus $15 billion did not equal $42 billion – I’m just saying.

With the state’s coffers in such need of filling, the $7 billion in stimulus spending dangled by Il Duce was happily received – strings, hooks, and all. The money replaced a proposed $0.12 per gallon tax hike, which I’m sure most Californian’s were happy to see left out of the budget. But then the other shoe dropped.

In a show of what can only be described as Brass Balls, yesterday President Obama jerked on the stimulus money, setting the hook, which will now allow him to control the state’s budget. Specifically, $74 million dollar budget cuts to the pay of unionized home healthcare workers. As reported in the L.A. Times,

Schwarzenegger’s office was advised this week by federal health officials that the wage reduction, which will save California $74 million, violates provisions of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Failure to revoke the scheduled wage cut before it takes effect July 1 could cost California $6.8 billion in stimulus money, according to state officials.

In other words, Obama is doing the same thing to California that he is doing to the auto and banking industries. Do what we want, because we gave you money. You took money, therefore we own you. The citizens of California are unimportant. The projects that would be paid for with the $7 billion, also not important. The taxpayers, many yet to be born, that are paying for the stimulus cash, definitely not important. The home health care union workers, who I’m sure would rather take a pay cut than lose their jobs, they’re important.

However, they are important only to a certain extent. The workers belong to SEIU, which is a branch of ACORN. As reported in the L.A. Times, but probably never in the MSM,

The workers, who collectively contribute millions of dollars in dues each month to the influential Service Employees International Union and the United Domestic Workers…

This is an ACORN payoff, plain and simple. ACORN is in large part responsible for the election of Barack Obama, and he owes them big. The state might very well be out of cash by June, so for Obama to put a political ally ahead of they needs of millions of citizens (which, ironically, voted for him in large numbers) is narrow minded, supercilious, and narcissistic.

Sorry California, you just got punk’d by a nut.

Our story begins as a nice, suburban couple, the Petersons, enter a UAW Motors Dealership to purchase a new mini-van for their growing family. Let’s listen in.

(Ding)

Salesman
–under his breath– Oh crap, here comes another couple…probably got some rugrats to haul around.
Uh, yeah, hi, welcome to UAW Motors, ummm, let me guess, needing a new car? The name’s Jake by the way.

Mr. Peterson
Yes sir, I’m Mr. Peterson and this is my wife Susan. We’re in the market for a minivan. Our sedan has reached it’s limit with our two children, and as you can see, we have anoth-

Jake
Well, that’s just great, not enough screamin’ kids in the world, huh? Oh well. Let me show you what we got.

Mr. Peterson

Jake
Ain’t got them.

Mr. Peterson
No? Why not?

Jake
Been off the market since Tuesday.

Mrs. Peterson
Ok, then what about the LX?

Jake
Ain’t got it neither. That’s been gone since last Wedneday. Had to cut back on models.

Mr. Peterson
Well, then what do you have?

Jake
Thought you’d never ask. [walks them to a van that looks like a mad scientist spliced a minivan and a PT Cruiser together…like a Ponitac Aztec, but smaller and uglier]
This here is the new Obama, Centennial Edition. Ain’t she a beaut?

Mrs. Peterson
Ummm…it’s a bit small, how am I going to fi-

Jake
Oh, don’t worry, it’s got lots of room inside. [leading the couple back inside] Now, I’d show it to you, but we have some paperwork to fill out first. I’m going to get Sam here [points at the obviously miffed Sam], to fill out your E-90 forms so we can let you see the inside. I’ll see ya in 15 – got to take a coffee break now.

This is one of the best written and insightful articles into the mind of the average Liberal voter. Not the power brokers who merely want power, but the normal looking guy on the street who drives an Acura sporting an Obama bumper sticker. If you read one blog post today, make it this one.

Here is the link again.
