    It’s great to show the young ones the things they need to know now.
    It’s tough to think of the grim things they will have to know later.
    You and your wife are the best teachers she will ever have. Congrats.

    Great write up over at American Thinker site today about the concepts of liberty today.

    Some good comments too

    Does anyone but me think obama might start a war to try to cover his ass
    Really, it would be about the only way to save the Country, so it would not happen with this twerp.

    • reboot says:

      Ray, he got it packed in his ass over Syria, Egypt hates his ass for trying to kill off everybody with nobammy’s brother hood friends, the only thing he has left to pick on and draw attention off of his socialist movements and idiocy is North Korea and Iran, both of which will piss off China and Russia.
      I guess it’s a roll of the dice. He needs some eyes removed from his ineptitude, that is for sure.

    Don’t watch this video. It is weapons-grade stupid. You will hate yourself for wasting 111 seconds of your finite life. It might actually kill some of your brain cells. You won’t feel the effect until the end and then it will hit you like a grand mal stroke. You were warned.

    Just going through some photos. I took this in Florence with my phone. It is painted on the support of the Loggia del Mercato Nuovo in the Piazza della Repubblica.

    I am starting to believe they are legion.

  9. notamobster says:

    They are legion. It’s just too bad that their opposition to govt springs from a desire for more free candy.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      And they vandalize an edifice built in the 1500s.

      Here is an aspect of that very site that could be put to good use… the stone of the bum punishment.

      During the Renaissance, the punishment of insolvent debtors included being chained to a post on this spot and then paddled repeatedly on the naked buttocks. The popular expression stare col culo a terra (“to have one’s ass on the ground”) and the word sculo (a dialectal word for “misfortune”) may have originated from this practice.

      • reboot says:

        I used to have a wife that would have enjoyed that.

      • notamobster says:

        Everything in existence is there for the use of these turds. Didn’t you know that? They don’t have to respect property rights, or tradition, or history. They are the proletarian revolution!

  10. MadBrad says:

    Imagine the experience of being an Italian man whose buttocks have been beaten by the idle passer by in the public square.

    As for the spawn of Satan, yes, they are Legion.

    In the end they will have their buttocks beaten by the idle passer by in the public square.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      “We are Legion” refers to a host of demons possessing a man. Christ cast the demons out of the man and into a heard of hogs that ran into water and drowned themselves.


        29 (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.)

        30 And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him.

        31 And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep.

        32 And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them.

        33 Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked.

    As I watch all this ridiculousness (“Don’t believe your ears… what I ACTUALLY said was blah blah blah…”) one prescient phrase keeps coming to mind…


    Yeah… he got THAT right at least.

    He didn’t mean to do THAT!

    After having witnessed the capabilities of the GoPro Hero 2, I think that it is entirely possible to do shows from my front porch. You know, with the bed springs in the background. This concept is worthy of further exploration. Somehow I must work a gimmick that has something new to offer.

  23. R.D. Walker says:

    Ray, prepare to be appalled.

    • Ray Davies says:

      I had forgotten that one. I was equating it to those of us who have the gimp sticker for special parking, and the classes we can take because we’re special, after all, the army let us jump out of their airplanes. We’re special.. and at least I get to take the short bus.

      • reboot says:

        The short bus has it’s merits, well, as long as they don’t make you wear a helmet and a drool cup that is……

    • Slaphappypap says:

      I remember watching this movie/scene in the movie theater. The entire theater was silenced with sickened shock.

      I of course was laughing while my girlfriend at the time punched my arm.

    • reboot says:

      As soon as I saw the picture, I KNEW I had to watch it this weekend. Hehehehehe……thanks for the smile, didn’t even havta watch it, LOL.

    Do you think Lady Gaga or Miley Cyrus could pull off just standing and singing? This is sooooo smooth.

    Stan and Astrud. Very classy.

    RD. Donnie and Marie are bringing a traveling Christmas show to OKC in December. If you hold up a piece of cardboard, you can imagine Donnie isn’t there.

    This guy used to ride broom at the General Mills facility in Cedar Rapids. Nice to see that he still seems to have his head on straight. Guy might be salvageable.

    While we are on the topic of great music, here is one of my all time favorite songs originally produced in 1963. Here we have a video 40 years later, and she sounds just as good as she ever has. I present to you Ruby and the Romantics!

    What ever happened to good music?

  29. notamobster says:

    One of my all time favorites! Ella & Satchmo:

    Bask in the brilliance of UC Berkeley. The first few sentences alone are astonishing.

    “The UC Berkeley student government has banned the term “illegal immigrant” from its discourse, deeming the phrase racist, offensive, unfair and derogatory.

    In an unanimous vote, student senators passed a resolution that stated the word “illegal” is “racially charged,” “dehumanizes” people, and contributes to “punitive and discriminatory actions aimed primarily at immigrants and communities of color.””

    Interesting insight into the Pres – in my opinion – in a stupid vs evil context, simply because he speaks so long on the subject.

  33. Rockheim says:

    Well since we’re engaging in a bit of a musical interlude allow me to throw Linda Eder’s hat into the proverbial ring..

    Bloomberg 11/8/2013
    Chicago, the third-most-populous U.S. city, had its credit rating lowered three steps on more than $8 billion of debt by Fitch Ratings, which cited the city’s growing unfunded pension liability.

    On this Veteran’s Day, a big thanks to all the REVO contributors and readers who have bravely fought to protect this country. Words are never enough from civilians like me to express enough thanks for your service.

  36. Ray Davies says:

    Darth, and to all my brothers (and Sisters) under arms thank you. I’m most of us will just say we were doing out duty. And we did. We all fought for our friends, and Country, not the government in power at the time. Some of us did great things, and were lauded, some of us, drove the trucks, did the laundry, and put food on the table. All Are/Were important as those of us out shooting things and people. I have decided the most important thing I did during the war was to take care of the girls at the Cam Lo Whorehouse in Viet Nam. None of my guys ever caught the clap from that place, and I’m sure the NVA and VC were happy too.
    I hope the rest of you can look at our service with a less juandiced eye, I guess I’m just getting old and realistic.

    • DarthJay says:

      Well every cog in the machine is needed to keep it running, isn’t it? I, personally, don’t view any one job as less deserving of respect or honor than another. We there some risking their lives more than others? Sure…but they wouldn’t have been there without a good support team. All parts are worthy of our thanks.
