      I love the Beatles process map flowchart!


      Sorry for my absence today. It’s all John B’s fault! I had to finish “Marine!” and start one of the free E-books I got. It’s called “D-Boys”. It is an awesome book. I love it. If you start reading it and find the first few pages in awkward prose – it’s intentional. Really a great book. Apparently, it’s part of a series! Yay for me!

    It’s called a flowchart, hello! :mrgreen:

    Hey, you with the larger than average cranial cavity! No one like a smart-ass.

    Uh, what’s that? Most of us around here, do, in-fact like smart-asses?

    Oh. My bad.

    The headquarters of “evil genius” Big Bird appears to be the Radon Plaza Hotel, a five star hotel in Sarajevo,Bosnia Herzegovina. Why? Who knows — an Obama campaign spokesman declined to comment.

  4. fubar says:

    people are seriously messed up.

  5. BigJimTX says:

    …government is rolling out new initiatives for companies to
    help truckers prone to sitting all day and eating fast food … to get healthier.

  6. BigJimTX says:

    fubar: So we can get Obama out of office and clear out the entitlement participation all in one motion?

    The mass rioting and suicides might be finally playing in our favor.

  7. DarthJay says:

    Gary Graham takes a stand on stage when receiving an award for Dreams Awake. Nice.

    Listen, I won’t belabor this but…I just want to say I hear Republicans take a lot of crap in this biz, and most of it’s pretty unfounded. I’m a Republican, this film was made by Republicans, and it’s Republicans that keep this country free so that we don’t have to make movies the government tells us we have to make. And John…where are ya…? John…Clint Eastwood called and he doesn’t know who you are either!

  8. fubar says:

    I was thinking between the
    “I”m moving out of the country, I’m killing myself, and I’m rioting” if Romney wins, it would be a serious improvement to the population. the collective IQ would certainly increase. 🙂

    unfortunately, it’s usually just “talk”

  9. BrunDawg says:

    Raising the collective IQ reminds me of Carlin’s comment. “Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!”

  10. fubar says:

    have you ever seen Carlin’s rant about global worming? It’s hilarious

  11. BigJimTX says:

    Bill Whittle breaking down liberalism – again. New Afterburner today.

  12. jacksonsdad says:

    Got this from The Obama “Truth Team”…

    I could go through them point by point and show who’s actually telling the truth and who is completely full of shit but I know that nobody here needs to be led to the truth.

    My question… who can swallow such putrid kool-aid? Are they so far gone that they have lost all their senses?

  13. jacksonsdad says:

    Brett Baier just had Stephanie Cutter foaming at the mouth… bless her heart. I guess it put her in a strange place, talking to someone who expected her to make a tiny bit of sense. She’s gonna wish she hadn’t done that interview. At the end she said “weeks later we found out it was a coordinated attack” (or some such nonsense).

    Have Mercy these people are deluded!

  14. jacksonsdad says:

    Bless her heart…


  15. fubar says:

    if you right click your mouse on this map, it gives you gas prices across the country.

    I’d like to add, this is for gas. some of us drive diesel. Our price (midstate PA ) is $4.15/ga.

  16. fubar says:

    saw the trailor for the movie ARGO last nite. looks good. too bad it’s made by George Clooney (and I find Affleck painful to watch)
    hope it bombs.

  17. notamobster says:

    BigJim – Another GREAT video from Bill Whittle!!! I wish that man would run for public office… or get his own TV show.

  18. MadBrad says:

    Y’all be ready for a great movie tonight.

    I mean it. I didn’t go out of my way to find a terrible movie this time.

  19. MadBrad says:

    Mark Levin is ripping some serious Biden ass on the radio tonight.

    I wonder if there’s anyone who could be more brilliant than a pissed off, smartass Jew.

    One day I hope I can shake his hand.

  20. Locke n Load says:

    he’s a gentleman off air brad. if i can get on his show several times, so can you. he puts people with coherent comments at the top of his call list. i’m usually on in less than 5 minutes.
    he’d like you

  21. fubar says:

    Holy crap!
    or i should say, Holy snake crap!

  22. TN-Cat says:

    Have a confession to make.

    Just returned from a wedding. They had a keg for the beer drinkers. Being only one choice I tried it. It was real good so I went for a second. The second went down as good if not better than the first so I had a third. I asked the bartender what kind of beer it was.


    I take back all the derogatory comments made.

  23. Locke n Load says:

    Oh dear god, you’ve turned to the dark side. Medic!!!

  24. Uke says:

    TN was blinded by the festivities of a wedding; Lord, do not hold this trespass against him.

    I know many a man that has partook of Southern Comfort at a wedding and somehow “enjoyed” it.

  25. Locke n Load says:

    Indeed. I believe I may have even enjoyed ‘spritzers’ once or twice myself. They were more of a ‘soda’ at that point tho.
    PBR though, just…no. Gives me a headache just smellin it

  26. Locke n Load says:

    Watching Apollo 13 for the first time in 10 years… Damnit, I forgot how good this flick was. I’m going to have to find a Blu Ray version ASAP, wish it was in 3D. Would look AWESOME on 60″

  27. jacksonsdad says:

    It’s been buggin’ me … Martha Raddatz reminds me of somebody. I think I got it….

  28. R.D. Walker says:

    I finally saw Prometheus last night.

    Visually awesome.

    Good acting.

    Great premise.

    A dog’s breakfast of a storyline that should have been rejected from a fan-fiction Internet forum as “Needs Work” and not made into a major motion picture without A LOT of work.

    Oddly, I still enjoyed it and I would say it is worth seeing. It is amazing what great cinematography can do for a movie.

  29. notamobster says:

    Have you seen “Pandorum”? My brother and I were just talking about watching Prometheus, but it’s not on Netflix yet. We’re watching Pandorum because it was awesome.

  30. R.D. Walker says:

    Nope, but I will check it out.

  31. notamobster says:

    Good riddance on Arlen Specter. He was a dishonorable piece of shit.

  32. notamobster says:

    They took Pandorum off the “Watch Instantly” list. Damnit!

  33. jacksonsdad says:

    On the debate tomorrow night. I was just remembering Bob Dole in 1996… he got the same criticism as BO after the first debate and went after BJ too strong in the second one. “Town Halls” don’t lend themselves to direct opponent attacks as you must first answer the asked question in terms of YOUR ideas/ policies/ proposals. I’m thinking The One will be lacking on details and recycling the same ol’ tired sanctimonious BS that get’s him standing ovations in stump speeches to his flock but but but… he won’t be preaching to that crowd, now will he?

    Of course there will be loyal supporters there (including the damned moderator) but there will also be loyal opposition and I can already hear the groans when Obowma starts strumming those same old notes again. Hypersensitive raw nerves won’t be muzzled… I look for the crowd to be the story on Wednesday.

    Of course they’ll then be called RACIST (which will further expose the depravity of today’s left) which means it’s all over but the crying.

  34. BrunDawg says:

    Tuesday, debate. Wednesday, Solyndra seeks court approval for its bankruptcy plans. That’ll leave a mark.

  35. vanagram says:

    One day in the future, Barack Obama has a heart-attack and dies.
    He immediately goes to hell, where the devil is waiting for him.
    “I don’t know what to do here,” says the devil. “You are on my list, but I have no room for you. You definitely have to stay here, so I’ll tell you what I’m going to do. I’ve got a couple of folks here who weren’t quite as bad as you. I’ll let one of them go, but you have to take their place. I’ll even let YOU decide who leaves.”
    Obama thought that sounded pretty good, so the devil opened the door to the first room.
    In it was Ted Kennedy and a large pool of water. Ted kept diving in, and surfacing, empty handed. Over, and over, and over he dived in and surfaced with nothing. Such was his fate in hell.
    “No,” Obama said. “I don’t think so. I’m not a good swimmer, and I don’t think I could do that all day long.”
    The devil led him to the door of the next room.
    In it was Al Gore with a sledge-hammer and a room full of rocks. All he did was swing that hammer, time after time after time.
    “No, this is no good; I’ve got this problem with my shoulder. I would be in constant agony if all I could do was break rocks all day,” commented Obama.
    The devil opened a third door. Through it, Obama saw Bill Clinton, lying on the bed, his arms tied over his head, and his legs restrained in a spread-eagle pose. Bent over him was Monica Lewinsky, doing what she does best.
    Obama looked at this in shocked disbelief, and finally said, “Yeah man, I can handle this.”
    The devil smiled and said………..

    “OK, Monica, you’re free to go.”

  36. notamobster says:

    Van – 🙂

    This actually occurred:

    My 5 year old nephew asked his mom the other day: “Where is the devil?” To which she replied “In hell, I guess.”

    He asked her: “Why is he in hell when he lives in Washington?”

    When asked who told him that, he said “No one. I just know.”

    From the mouths of babes. 😉

  37. RJM says:

    Who will BHO blame for his election loss? George Bush or Debbie “Crazy Eyes”?

  38. Greg B says:

    Clinton throws herself under the bus to
    protect the despot in the WH.
    I wonder if they have some nasty dirt on her
    and/or her hubby?
    I find it hard to believe she’d throw away a
    chance for 2016…….

  39. notamobster says:

    My internet (at home) has been down since Friday night. I’m on a line-of-sight connection and a competitors signal is interfering with my transmission.

    If they don’t have it fixed by tonight, I may not be in attendance for the debate.

    That blows. I may go over to Magellan’s house.

  40. BaconNeggs says:

    Ladies first! First Ladies talk about the economy.

    Oh and by the way, thank Obama, because the US is now in the midst of an economic recovery, just ask Michelle.

  41. fubar says:

    I know everybody’s gonna be talking about the debate for like, EVER now but …

    but is anyone doing anything for H’ween? i am working on a Wednesday Addams costume for my youngest, does anyone make costumes anymore?

  42. notamobster says:

    I made my daughter a ghillie suit a couple years back and she went out with a bb gun, as a sniper. It was pretty sweet.

    We’re all getting together for a party (brothers, sisters, families). We have Sunday dinner together every week, so it’s not a huge production, but we’re gonna have candy & games so the kids don’t have to go begging for free candy from strangers.

  43. notamobster says:

    MadBrad goes all out for Halloween in the hood:

    He dresses as pinhead.

    He decks the house out and scares the neighborhood. There’s video on here somewhere of his house, but I couldn’t find it.

  44. fubar says:


    THANKS FOR POSTING THAT! You guys are awesome!

    I have to go put up my Romney yard signs.

  45. notamobster says:

    Holy crap!!!

  46. BrunDawg says:

    Do you think he has enough voters to fill Armstron Hall in Mt. Vernon?

  47. notamobster says:

    I saw one of these the other day. It was in the field behind my house. I just sat, mesmerized by it.

    It’s a black, whitetail deer. The trait (mutation) is called melanistic. They are so rare that I (an avid hunter) had never even heard of such a thing. Beautiful. I’d still shoot him and eat him.

    thatd be fun, but no. scrambling back to #2’s birthday party.
    almost didnt escape that shithole.
    sorry man. i AM always lookin

  51. jacksonsdad says:

    All this “Da Pez Called It TERRORISM Right Away” is setting up an interesting dynamic for the third debate. Obviously the evidence abounds and Romney will be locked-n-loaded for this topic. I’m wondering if The One will throw Candy under the bus in the form of the qualification “I never said that I called the Benghazi attack ‘terrorism’ on 9-12-12. What I DID do was identify it as an ‘act of terror’ in my Rose Garden speech about Benghazi”.

    The fact that he blamed it on the ‘internet video’ (sounds even MORE gay now than it did then) multiple times for the next two weeks while never uttering the words ‘terrorism’ or ‘terrorists’ is something that he will have to rely on BS (Bob Schieffer) to obscure but… if the old man fails in that duty he knows he’s always got the running dogs taking up the slack to muddy it up with their revisionist bullshit.

    If they’ve done nothing lately they’ve certainly proven their willingness (delight?) to pimp the party line.

  52. BigJimTX says:

    Just found 2016: Obama’s America on DVD. I didn’t realize it was coming out so soon, but it makes sense to increase viewership.

  53. JenR says:

    I like this new Romney ad:

  54. fubar says:

    Unreal. Fubarling and I are getting a table at a local “craft fair”. Not only did i have to get a sales tax ID number for this, we can’t sell cookies, because I’m not going to purchase a million dollar liability policy in order to do so.

  55. Uke says:

    Just watched 2016 last night. Very well done.

    Even though we at the Revo know three-quarters of the content, he puts it all together fluidly. Furthermore, I couldn’t help but imagine how shocking the content would be to folks not as “in the know” as us.

    I kept asking myself, “How did this guy get elected??” and I only half-joked that the movie belongs in the “Horror” section.

  56. fubar says:

    great americanthinker article!

  57. MadBrad says:

    Mitt Romney just nuked Obama with great humor at the Alfred E. Smith Foundation Charity Benefit. He got a lot of pops from the crowd because he just killed it. I don’t know who all wrote the routine he did but he delivered it with perfect comedic timing.

    This was followed by a lack-luster performance by the President. There were quite a few lapses as he waited for the crowd to react. In no instance did he get the same crowd reaction that Romney got. So much for Mister Cool.

  58. MadBrad says:

    The net and talk shows will be all over this between now and the next debate but people will be remembering this performance for a very long time.

  59. fubar says:

    huh. seems that lady at the last debate with the stupid AK47 question is a dem operative. I”m shocked!

  60. notamobster says:

    fubar – write it up!


    My internet is still intermittent, receiving massive interference from the competitor’s signal. Uber-slow. I’m out of commission as far as posting content goes… barely able to post comments!

  61. RJ says:

    Assuming a Romney sweep and coat tail take over of senate and keeping control of house is there time to turn the economy around if all the right things are done? Or are we too far along the path of destruction to stop before the crash and burn I feel in my heart is coming?
    Thoughts anyone?

  62. notamobster says:

    RJ – this attack we’re under is a multi-pronged approach. It’s like a perfect storm.

    There are so many variables that could turn against us at any moment, including those who would do us harm. We’re going to debauch our currency, regardless of who wins. No one has the balls to make the cuts necessary to prevent the destruction of the USD.

    Add to that the fact that the BRICS nations are actively seeking the demise of the petro-dollar (thus, our destruction as a world leader).

    Our outlook ain’t pretty. It’ll be less than 5 years before WWIII begins.

  63. sortahwitte says:

    I agree, RD. I see that 5 years if conservatives control it all. BUT, if the other wins in Nov., I see it folding in a year to 18 months.

    If you have done nothing to prepare, right now is the time. I mean get information, make plans, and execute them. Now. And, as my friend nota has pointed out, drinking water is at the top of the list of things to prepare.

  64. jacksonsdad says:

    I couldn’t remember if there was a post about this…

  65. Uke says:

    Just watched the Brett Baier special on the Benghazi attack and it was very well done.

    Also pissed the off to the high heavens. >_<

    my favorite tweet of the day:

    if romney wins, i will set the white house on fire and make it look like an accident.—
    Eric † Monster (@hausoferic) October 18, 2012

    Yeah hausoferic, because you didn’t just announce this to a bajillion people, they’ll never suspect you.

    I’d be more shocked if these people could string a coherent sentence together, much less pull off a unsolved crime.

    Guys, the gals from the typing pool have had just about enough of your shit.

    There was some office furniture in that clip?
    Although it would have been funnier if they had emulated the scene from “Office Space”

  69. DarthJay says:

    I don’t know who Nick Romney is, but with a last name like that – I’d still vote for him before I voted for Obama.

    The Street’s List of 10 worst cars

    that beamer Isetta car reminds me of those little electric pieces of crap, they look like bumper cars, only smaller.

  71. fubar says:

    huh. seems that moochelle is about to get into some (more) legal trouble.

    she was VP when the patient dumping was going on. is this why she lost her law license?

  72. Greg B says:

    Probably the story I’ve been hearing how the zero campaign accepted money from foreign donors.
    The story focused on two small donations from some guy in the UK. Also tried to donate to Romney but was automatically rejected.
    But bammys campaign took in over 2 mil from questionable sources.

  73. R.D. Walker says:

    Look at Obama’s donor list. Thousands and thousands of small donations that look like this:


    Who donates in figures like that? Doesn’t everybody give in round numbers?


    You know, like that.

    I figure $15.78, $28.43 and $23.67 started out as round numbers too. It is just that when they were converted from round numbers in foreign currency, they came out as $15.78, $28.43 and $23.67.

  74. BigJimTX says:

    How do you post an image in a comment? I tried img src=”http://filename.jpg” surrounded by brackets, but it didn’t show up, and upon editing the tag was gone. What am I doing wrong here?

  75. R.D. Walker says:

    Well, BigJim, you gotta be a cob-logger to embed images. Sorry. Who knows what nastiness the trolls would post here otherwise? Post a link and I will embed.

  76. BigJimTX says:

    Good point. Never thought about that. Guess that’s why they pay you the big bucks.

  77. fubar says:

    I got a call before, that someone had placed Obama/Biden signs in my yard. Rushed home to make sure my Romney/Ryan signs were still ok. False alarm.

    this guy not so lucky:

  78. RevoGirl says:

    I just left a 4 day music festival, although we go every year I wasn’t looking forward to it this year… 4 yrs ago everyplace you looked there were hope and change signs, t-shirts and bumper stickers. This year I saw 3 Obama bumper stickers! That was it! It gives me hope Obama’s time has come.

  79. R.D. Walker says:

    I just figured out what was causing the site to hang up all night. It was the countdown clock. Nice that I could figure it out after it is all done, huh?

    That AINT ‘beaten to a pulp’ (even Magellan said so). That’s a normal ass-whoopin’.

  81. R.D. Walker says:

    It will come as no surprise that we just hit the most comments ever in a single month and it is only the 22nd.

  82. BigJimTX says:

    BigJim, I’m curious. How DID you find us? Have we met?

  89. BigJimTX says:

    I don’t think we’ve met. I actually don’t remember how I came upon the Revo.

  90. Locke n Load says:

    Lol, if you don’t remember than we didn’t. Ask RD, MB, JD, Nota or any of the others from the Fiesta. I tend to leave an impression 🙂

  95. jacksonsdad says:

    Just got this via e-mail…

    “A good friend of mine has fond memories of attending Bel Aire Presbyterian Church in California in the 1970s. She and her husband used to sit directly behind the then-Governor Ronald and Nancy Reagan each Sunday morning. The Reagans would slip in during the first hymn and exit during the last…very humbly and quietly. My friend sent me this rather short video that we all should watch. Everyone in our government should be forced to watch it several times!! After you have watched it please pass it along to everyone you know and love. It is not long and it brought tears to my eyes and a longing for a time long passed, one that maybe we can return to…if we care enough. Please keep this going, to everyone, everywhere.”

  96. TN-Cat says:

    Thanks for posting that JD.

    What a different world it seems to have been. I hope we get a sliver of that back.

  97. Greg B says:

    According to e-mails which were in real time, WH knew attack was terrorists.
