    Hey! Hey! I’m in charge around here and you will watch Marie Osmond sing Let it Snow. Why? Because shut up, that’s why!

  3. R.D. Walker says:

    This is probably the quietest Friday of the year; right before Christmas.

    Expect the White House Friday Document Dump to have some really good stuff in it tonight.

    Wayne Gretzky, eat your heart out.

    This duo makes as much sense as raisins and ice cream.

    Awesome! Bet this guy had an erector set when he was a kid.

    Merry Christmas to RD, Brad, Lock, Bman, Nota, Jim, and Sorta. All the writers on this blog keep me reading every single day. Love ya all. I’m all lovy dovey from the Belgium Ale I’m drinking. Two 22 oz for me!! Love you guys.

  10. Bman says:

    Thank you Slap. Merry Christmas to you and yours my good Sir!

  11. notamobster says:

    Crown and leinenkugels fireside nut brown (not great- barely drinkable) for tonight.

  12. notamobster says:

    Shocker.

  13. MadBrad says:

    Pap, a belated Merry Christmas wish to you and yours and I hope everybody here has a happy new year.

    This will be forever known as the holiday season that I became a Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer Drinker, due in no small part to the inspirational sentiments expressed here by BMan. It just so happens that this year is the first year since 1990 that I have displayed Christmas lights on the exterior of my house. Coincidence? I think NOT!

    I’ve had a lot going on this holiday season. All the ladies in my life (excluding the ones I’ve been married to) have been calling, texting and e-mailing their Christmas wishes in to Sweet Daddy and it has taken some time for me to respond to them all. I still have many yet to go, so I hope you will excuse my absence here of late. it IS a season for giving and that’s all Sweet Daddy ever does. How is my life to have meaning if I don’t spend it touching as many people as I can in my special way?

    Now as we know from my previous essays, Biomagnetic Pulse is real and NOT to be trifled with. Well wouldn’t you know, I got my PBR holiday Christmas light party on and WHAMO… out went a BMP. It slipped, I swear. I didn’t think it was that bad but obviously it was. This one resonated well and it seems to be continuing to do so.

    I don’t want to go down a list of easily recognizable names that have been mentioned and/or frequented this forum at one point or another. That would be ungentlemanly of me to do.

    BUT…

    What I CAN do is bring in a name that has never been mentioned here before. This one goes WAAAY back into the archives, all the way back to November of 1991.

    OOOooohhhh YEEeeeaaaahhh!

    Let Sweet Daddy float a name that belongs to a young lady who had a big influence on my life.

    Her Name?

    “Nasty Julie”.

    DEFINITELY to be continued.

    Don’t play with BMP.

  14. Bman says:

    I’m glad, Brad, that you have discovered the glory of a true Pabst Christmas. Here is more inspiration for you from my tree. Someday, your tree will look like mine.

  15. R.D. Walker says:

    File under “Yuck.”

    Anthony Weiner Wanted Threesome With Another Man, According To Mistress.

    “Hmmmm, haven’t done it before,” Nobles said.

    “It can be hot,” Weiner replies.

    “Are you turned on by other guys?” Nobles asked.

    “Well it depends on the guy, but generally yes,” Weiner divulges.

  16. MadBrad says:

    BMan, your Christmas Spirit inspires me. Next year I will do more than put lights on the house. I’ll have a live tree to put on the inside. Now I know that I won’t have to spend any money on ornaments. Red, White and Blue LEDs and some Tinsel is all I will be needing.

  17. KWMatthews says:

    What’s up with the straight Paul attacks? I know he has flaws, but I’m growing convinced that everyone here would rather suffer four more years of Obama and his ilk.

    It wouldn’t bother me so much if it wasn’t for the sense of hatred I’m detecting. Do none of his positive traits matter? Why have none of the other frontrunners received this sort of animosity?

    Yes, he’s a strict isolationist, but he’s also a strict Constitutionalist.

    Obviously I’m a bit of a Paultard, but still, the hatred is feeling a little over the top.

  18. R.D. Walker says:

    As I have said elsewhere, Ron Paul’s positive traits might be to politics what a perfect beef stew is to the culinary arts. Sadly, Paul’t negative traits are a big turd in the stew. I don’t care how good the rest of the stew is, that turd ruins the whole pot.

    ~ Paul’s foreign policy is much, much, much worse than Obama’s.

    ~ Paul’s tin foil hat conspiracy mongering makes me think he is a little nuts.

    ~ Paul’s Jew/Nigger conspiracy mongering makes me think he is a racist.

    ~ Paul’s support in 2008 for Cynthia McKinney and Dennis Kucinich makes me think conservatism means nothing to him.

    His constitutional libertarian domestic policy might be delicious, but those four turds make the stew inedible.

  19. KWMatthews says:

    As I’ve mentioned before, I understand the negatives, but if I see a ruined bowl of really fantastic punch, I won’t drink it, but I will wish I could, if only it wasn’t tainted…

    And, if dying from thirst as our country is now, I would try my best to drink around the disgusting part. Sure, you know tye whole thing is contaminated, but you’re thirsty and about to die, so dive in and hope for the best.

    I suppose the biggest problem I have is that, despite knowing the flaws, I would rather try some slightly undercooked pasta, throw it against the wall, and see what sticks. As we’ve pointed out many times before, even the president’s powers are nit without limits, so the harm done would likely be minimal compared to the good.

  20. R.D. Walker says:

    The president’s powers are limited domestically. Few of the Paul policies of which you approve would he be able to implement.

    The president’s powers in foreign affairs and national defense are much broader. He has a much freer hand.

    That means that, as a practical matter, we would be forced to carefully eat around the stew and only devour the turd.

  21. BaconNeggs says:

    Happy New Year from London. Its already 2 hours into the New Year here and from the warm 13C rain laden skies, fireworks boomed and thundered at midnight, like I havent heard for a long time.

    Apparently its the year of the Dragon, I dont know if thats good or bad but I shall drink a toast to a happy new year for all of us.

  22. R.D. Walker says:

    Still a couple of hours out on this part of the spinning blue marble, BnE. Happy New Year bro.

  23. Locke n Load says:

    Happy New year!!!!

  24. R.D. Walker says:

    For some reason, the other girls at the club took an immediate dislike to Kelli.

  25. sortahwitte says:

    If she would eat more french fries her pants wouldn’t fall down and she would have more friends.

  26. Jim22 says:

    And if she didn’t have a crappy enough attitude to wear an in-your-face shirt like that one she’d have more friends.

  27. John says:

    I’d hit that.

  28. R.D. Walker says:

    Interesting. My caucus site tomorrow night is in my church.

    I sort of wish they wouldn’t filthy up my church with politics, you know what I mean? I support the separation of church and state in order to protect the church.

  29. notamobster says:

    She’s hot… though I prefer a bit more meat.

  30. What person would be a good candidate as vice President to whoever gets the republican nomination for president?

  31. Vanagram says:

    Re: Kelli–

    As a (single) friend of mine says:

    “I’d hit that so hard whoever pulled me out would become King of England.”

    (with apologies to Mrs. Vanagram…)

  32. Air Force Brat says:

    Can’t wait to see what this chick will look like in 10-15 years . . .

    Every once in a while, I just have to meow. Loud.

  33. Jim22 says:

    “What person would be a good candidate as vice President to whoever gets the republican nomination for president?”

    Senator Marco Rubio comes to mind. So does Rick Santorum.

  34. Bman says:

    This comment brought to you from my new Kindle! It only took me 10 minutes!

  35. Air Force Brat says:

    Hmmm, Brad has been a little scarce lately . . . where ya at, MB?

  36. KWMatthews says:

    How are you liking the kindle, Bman? I went with the Nook Tablet. I have no complaints so far, but I haven’t used it for much outside of reading and light web browsing. Just curious how the other side lives while I still have a chance to return it if necessary.

  37. Bman says:

    My Kindle is the old school one. Was a gift for Christmas. I didn’t even know it had web browsing on it until last night. I use it for reading, although I can see myself checking into the revo on it. The convinience of downloading a book in 2-3 minutes at half the cost is quite appealing to me. I love it.

    Johnson County Installs Newest Rural Weather Siren

    That and I read in the paper this morning that Eddie and Pearl Netolecky had guests for supper last night. That’s nice.

  40. DarthJay says:

    Woman calls 911 and asks if it’s okay to shoot a man breaking into her house. 911 operator says the intruder must have entered the house before she can shoot. Mother shoots and kills him as soon as he breaks down the door and enters. Good for her.

  41. Air Force Brat says:

    That’s one hell of a smart 18-year-old. Oklahoma has one of the best “Make My Day” laws in the nation, and stories such as this make me doubly glad to live here. Even the Democrats here don’t raise much more than a token whine when a law-abiding citizen plugs an intruder breaking into his or her home.

  42. Bman says:

    A sequel isn’t as good as the original, but what the heck, she’s as cute as a bugs ear.

  43. Air Force Brat says:

    Oh Lord, JUSTIN BIEBER???

    But okay. Someone put up some beefcake, please, and I’ll never criticize Justin Bieber again. :)

  44. sortahwitte says:

    AFB, it don’t matter to the dims in OK. Dead or alive, that guy is voting a straight dimo ballot.

  45. Air Force Brat says:

    Now THAT’S beefy, Bman! :D

    Sortahwitte — what guy? The beefcake? I’m confused; I was only saying in my post that even the Dims don’t raise much of a stink when someone kills an intruder breaking in to their home . . .

  46. Air Force Brat says:

    Well, that’s weird. During the process of posting my addendum, I got kicked off the site and got a message “site has programming error”.

    Anyhoo, my update was: Or, Sorta, did you mean Justin Bieber? Nah, that little nonentity would need a turkey baster to impregnate anyone. Let him vote Democrat. He’s more of a girl than *I* am.

  47. sortahwitte says:

    AFB. I meant the guy who got shot intruding. He will be voting dim, dead or alive

  48. Air Force Brat says:

    Aha! Forgive my blonde moment. It’s been a rough week . . . :D

  49. KWMatthews says:


    This has been making the rounds at the office, so I had to share.

  53. Jim22 says:

    Bin Laden quote:

    “Our talks with the infidel West and our conflict with them ultimately revolve around one issue—one that demands our total support, with power and determination, with one voice—and it is: Does Islam, or does it not, force people by the power of the sword to submit to its authority corporeally if not spiritually? Yes. There are only three choices in Islam: [1] either willing submission [conversion]; or [2] payment of the jizya, through physical, though not spiritual, submission to the authority of Islam; or [3] the sword — for it is not right to let him [an infidel] live. The matter is summed up for every person alive: Either submit, or live under the suzerainty of Islam, or die.”
    –Osama Bin Laden
    (The Al Qaeda Reader, p. 42)

  54. R.D. Walker says:

    T-shirt anyone?

    I have a few other ideas too.

  55. Notamobster says:

    So… John McCains kid just said that she’s in love with Mitt’s boys because they’re “just kinda perfect and beautiful and my families just this sort of rag-tag, tattooed bunch of….(indecipherable)

    whiskey. Tango. Foxtrot.

    Over.

    Huh?

  56. Air Force Brat says:

    Sure she’s real, Nota. Real stupid. She’s a blow-up doll that, unfortunately, talks.

    I’d rather put my money on Talking Tina from the old Twilight Zone episode.

    Megan McCain: Like, My Daddy he’s a senator.. And he told me I can be anything I want…progressive republican whatever. So, I know this great sushi bar place do wanna go with me? Me: Just shut your mouth blondie and make the blouse disappear. My apologies to Mrs Slap. It couldn’t be helped.

  58. Bman says:

    I could only like Megan McCain for 5-10 minutes tops.

  59. sortahwitte says:

    I like the shirt. Among your many talents, I now find graphic artist.

  60. Bman says:

    I just met a kid from Wasilla, Alaska, who stated that his grandma, “is actually pretty good friends with Sarah Palin.” That was the response when I asked him if he ever bumped into her.

    I believe him. Carry on.

  61. R.D. Walker says:

    Another T-shirt idea. Click to enlarge.

    Just foolin’ around here…

    Anybody have any suggestions for a motif?

  62. RJM says:

    I like the AR design, can you put a big scope on it?

  63. R.D. Walker says:

    I watched the first episode of Firefly tonight. Both it and Serenity are on Netflix. Just want folks to know I am doing my assignment.

    It looks interesting…

  64. Uke says:

    Awesome! Wasn’t sure anyone would. :P

  65. R.D. Walker says:

    I tend to like good science fiction. I tend to loathe bad science fiction. I am picky that way. This has promise to be the former.

    I don’t much care for fantasy of any kind. I have a rule; unless it is a comedy or children’s show, as soon as a dragon appears in any movie, I walk out.

  66. Jim22 says:

    “Here’s another way to look at the Debt Ceiling: Let’s say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood….and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings. What do you think you should do …… Raise the ceilings, or pump out the crap?

    Your choice is coming Nov. 2012.”

  67. sortahwitte says:

    Oh….I thought we were getting the wrap to put on our own ARs. I like it on a shirt, too.

  68. KWMatthews says:

    Short on time, but I felt the need to share:

    http://i.imgur.com/z4WlF.jpg

    Possibly NSFW language in the pic.

  69. notamobster says:

    So I invited my sister and her kid over for a delicious dinner, prepared entirely from scratch:

    Ribeyes, dirty rice, crab cakes, lobster & corn bisque, celery bisque (for the non seafood wife of mine) Amish bread, garlic bread sticks, sauteed vegetables!

    Absolutely incredible, if say so myself!

  70. R.D. Walker says:

    Hell, I’d come over for that grub too.

  71. notamobster says:

    RD – take the commie occupy fist and fit “The Real
    Revo” inside of it. We might get some coomie leftard trolls with shirts like that.

  72. notamobster says:

    I’m working on my recipes for when I open my soup and sandwich joint. I may have an interested
    Silent partner. It’s the first bisque I’ve ever made. It was exceptional.

  73. Locke n Load says:

    Please tell me you used the lobster shells to make the bisque…

    Oh, and if you really decide to get into the sandwich biz, feel free to hit me up if you ever need help. In a former life I rescued sandwich and pizza joints that were disfunctional. No fun quite like turning around a place to profitablity. I’d love to hear your ideas

  74. sortahwitte says:

    The above link by LnL is very much worth your time.

  75. MadBrad says:

    There is going to be some serious cooking going on at the Fiesta. Large pots of soup/bisque/chili cooked over an open fire promote endless talking and drinking. It’s a Fiesta, so there must be much feasting.

    I have a serious cast iron collector tempting me with a piece of cookware designed for roasting small pigs. I believe that I must have it bt at this exact time I have other priorities. I am tempted to lose discipline and go ahead and get it.

  76. Locke n Load says:

    RD got me flumuxed and I had to pull up a copy of the bill of rights and all the amendments.
    Scrolled to the bottom and found a great collection of links… can’t say I’ve seen the Magna Carta in a while but there it is.

    http://www.ushistory.org/documents/amendments.htm#amend11

  77. Locke n Load says:

    Brad, I can’t even imagine what a cast iron pig roster looks like. Or weighs. I was thinking of rigging up a smoker and bringing up some mesquite and hickory. if I’m really lucky i’ll find a way to get my hands on more stuffed pizza pans.

  79. MadBrad says:

    The Laura Ingraham Show has been interrupted so that ABC News can bring us the dramatic withdrawal of John Huntsman from the Reopublican Primary Race. I cannot understand how anyone with such poor public speaking skills would ever think themselves as capable of winning any kind of election. This is the most painfully boring public speech I have heard in a very long time.

  80. Uke says:

    @MB
    Huntsman is that sort of speaker that is terrible, but makes people think he’s good simply because he speaks smoothly.

    People have abandoned being truly critical of speeches in favor of simply liking candidates that don’t say “um” or “uh” a lot.

  81. Locke n Load says:

    Hey Brad,
    Read this when you get the time. About the 24th paragraph or so it starts sounding like your aquaintance (claiming US $$$ for rabble rousers in Syria) might just be right.

    Interesting insight into the covert war we’re already fighting.

    http://tinyurl.com/865396f

    From the piece even further down…

    Ideology aside — and the United States negotiating with the “Axis of Evil” or Iran with the “Great Satan” would be tough sells to their respective domestic audiences — the problem with this is that it is difficult to see what each has to offer the other. What Iran wants — a dominant position in the region and a redefinition of how oil revenues are allocated and distributed — would make the United States dependent on Iran. What the United States wants — an Iran that does not build a sphere of influence but instead remains within its borders — would cost Iran a historic opportunity to assert its longstanding claims.

    We find ourselves in a situation in which neither side wants to force the other into extreme steps and neither side is in a position to enter into broader accommodations. And that’s what makes the situation dangerous. When fundamental issues are at stake, each side is in a position to profoundly harm the other if pressed, and neither side is in a position to negotiate a broad settlement, a long game of chess ensues. And in that game of chess, the possibilities of miscalculation, of a bluff that the other side mistakes for an action, are very real.

  84. Locke n Load says:

    yup. and at two she has no clue. still blows just the same

  85. Air Force Brat says:

    Call home and do “daddy-talk” on the phone. Lots of it. Then do exactly as R.D. suggests when you get home.

    The hockey league I played in during the early 90’s (North American Hockey League) got some love from The Blaze today. These two teams were not around during my days, but the kind of hockey played is the same.

  87. Locke n Load says:

    I know where that Corpus Christi team plays, there’s a team in Laredo too. Those fans are hardcore and don’t take to being mocked about hockey in the desert. I pissed off a whole room full of Latinas one day that way. Probably some smart ass comment about crossing frozen rivers to play here…
