I love this kind of stuff. When is a rape not a rape ? When it's committed by someone Whoopi Goldberg likes. Liberals get all twisted when laws are applied to them. Especially when it's laws they wrote, championed, and just yesterday stood by the rape victim, no matter how long justice would take. The man drugged and raped a 13 year old girl. He plead guilty, before sentencing he fled the country. You're going down dopey.
The Big Guy, WFP, reminds us males in our 50's the importance of our colonoscopy exams. Now, if they were conducted like this, we may go more often.
Read Mychal Massie as he details why There's good reason not to trust Obama. Remember, Dear Leader won't talk to those who oppose his plans because they're too radical, yet will go and sit with tyrants like Mahmoud from Iran, or shake Chavez' hand, and send that other half-black president Clinton to hug Kim Jong Il..... Have you no shame ?
Seems the pressure is getting to Barry and his wife. Now they are drafting an 'enemies' list.
From the field, KP spots one of the effects of the downturn in our economy. This couple could no longer afford a stroller, so they improvised.
Checkout this story about a 'creature' found in Mexico. DNA tests were unable to identify the species. Interesting.
Our Man about town, CH, doesn't say much, but has this to say
There are four things that you cannot recover in life: (1) The Stone..........after it's thrown, (2) The Word...........after it's said,? (3) The Occasion.....after it's missed, and (4) The Time............after it's gone..
Here's an interesting compilation of past, current new headlines from around the world and predictions for a major situation developing. Called War News. The summary on the last page is quite interesting.
TR sends in this website of examples of how men fix things around the house and about. After looking at these, I cautioned my wife to not make fun of or complain when I fix things. Some of these are quite interesting and creative. Ah, the human mind.
Happy Birthday to our artist/RN KPm, who turns 25 today. We love you !!!
Have you seen this video of a UFO over Arizona ? Wow !!! I think these are planetary alignments they are creating. Some sort of attempt to communicate. I love this crap.
This is a great piece. Simple title - One simple question about Obama - "...What passport did he use when he was shuttling between New York, Jakarta, and Karachi ?..."
pPOJaL got his first arrest last night. 4 knives off the streets of Brooklyn. Good man. Congratulations !!! We love you.
Have you seen this video of kids singing some song to Obama ? Also see how they change the lyrics to the Battle Hymn of the Republic. Revolting and worrisome. Check these lyrics out. And as I said, for the liberals out here, substitute the name George W. Bush for Barry for purposes of illustration. And we can't have students recite the Pledge of Allegiance any longer ? Shameful. It's all being exposed now, and We the People will be taking our country back from you fucking commies. You don't like it here ? Go to Venezuela.
The children are lined up in front of a stage, and an adult is teaching them the chant:
Uhm, uhm, uhm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said all should lend a hand to make the country strong again
Uhm, uhm, uhm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said we must be fair today, equal work means equal pay
Uhm, uhm, uhm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said take a stand, make sure everyone gets a chance
Uhm, uhm, uhm, Barack Hussein Obama
He said red, yellow, black and white, all are equal in his sight
Uhm, uhm, uhm, Barack Hussein Obama
YEAH. Barack Hussein Obama
KP sends in a pic of her and FjL frm Citifield. I think that's my honey dressed up as Ms. Met.
Scooby came across Mayor Mike today in his travels, and files this report from the field.
Here's a nice photo of the family at the little party we had for our birthdays.
Unless I was seeing things, the Dolphins and Pats were playing through on 40th street the other day.
AT sends over this video of the 9/12 march on Washington. Our old friend JoeD makes a cameo at 2:06 and reports that unlike the filthy mess left on the Capitol grass from the 'people' at the Barry coronation, these folks picked up their own trash and the place was much cleaner. And there was nearly 2,000,000 of them.
So, they found that missing nuclear power plant engineer dead from an apparent 'suicide'.... Except he had no reason to kill himself. I don't know, I gots a bad feeling here.
They are beginning to take down the scaffolding that has covered our building for nearly a year. Should be all down to 2nd floor by the end of the month.
Just got the new Wizard of Oz Pez set. Cool dispensers.
Here's a great idea for walking around town with a gaggle of kids. A kiddie kinder van.
A birthday shout out to a good friend, BF. Enjoy your birthday my friend and fellow Virgo.
Today also marks 2 years that my Uncle and God-father passed away. I miss you Zeke. We all do and will forever. If you visit my Family & Friends page you will see that life goes on. I've made over 50 entries on that page alone since Zeke passed on. Time marches on, but we still hurt, yet our memories get stronger, more meaningful. I wear this band each day to help me stay connected. Later Zeke. I Love You !
Today marks my birthday. I'm 52 today and another year closer to retiring. Things are pretty good. I love my wife, she still loves me, and our boys are wonderful young men. Thanks to all the family, and friends who sent along their birthday wishes. (yes Gimp, me gots friends) I do appreciate it, but still feel funny being on the receiving end.
For the guys at work. Arlo Guthrie's Alice's Restaurant. It's about 18mb, so be patient.
My son Jack Jr turns 25 years old today. Happy Birthday son. We Love You very much. We are proud of the fine young man you have become. You are a recent college graduate, and a full time worker. You work hard, have sensitive and mature values, and a really nice person to boot. We wish you continued success and happiness, in whatever direction you head. Be sure to travel and experience the world, before you settle down. And remember to always be true to yourself. I Love You !!!
What do you think Ernie Anastos said about that chicken the other night. Look at Dari's face when he makes the statement.
Checkout Obama calling Kanye West a jackass. Kool.
My honey sends in this article - Comet Outbursts Spawns Mini-Comets. I love when they tell us this is the first time this was ever witnessed by astronomers. You can't even imagine what's going on out there that we aren't seeing. You silly human race. Don't you know you mean nothing to the stars ?
More doom and gloom to ponder. An 'emergency' arranged as end of U.S. as a democracy ? It does make you think, don't it ?
Looks like we have the Italian tri-fecta this weekend. There's my broken window story and these two items from AT and the Big Guy WFP, with a link to the cutest little Italian teddy-bear and this bit from Mike Marino about an Italian American President going after Bin Laden.
Some rascals broke into my car while it was parked at Shea all day. Took my gps and mp3 player. And I just loaded it up with new Shemekia Copeland tunes. At least they were neat about it, and smart enough to take the power adapters.
Well, it looks like they got Acorn by their nuts. Checkout these videos.
Scooby & The Lads were by the Library and came across one of those there housewives.
The Malba Car show was today. Great weather, big turnout of great classic cars.

Some foreign news radio show tried to interview a couple of the boys out front. Here's C & T politely declining ...
Very nice sunrise the other morning. Don't mind the power lines, we don't notice them any longer.
Checkout this interesting story. Music is in the eye of the beholder
More mystery surrounding Barry's eligibility. Here is a story about 2, not 1 documents the DNC generated and had notarized when they prepared to nominate Barry and Joe the retard for President and Vice-President. Seems one version is missing a key series of those pesky objects we call words. Words that can suggest some awareness about whether Barry Soetero is eligible to be our president. Besides the fact there are two versions, these documents can also be used as evidence AGAINST public education, because both versions spell the word 'through' wrong. Go figure. I would be very interested to see the version the DNC produced for the last election in 2004. To see which words were used then.
Don't you find it interesting that those nightly news US serviceman death counts we used to get during the Bush administration have stopped ? The number of deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan are on the rise, he wants to increase troop levels, but no news outlet mentions it since Dear Leader was elected. How shameful is that ? If Bush tried to add one more soldier it was a news bulletin. This guy is extending tours and adding more guys to the fight, but nary a peep from the MSM.
Patchy (Scooby's Scrappy-doo) jumped hisself out of a plane from really high up. Congrats Scrappy, me thinks u b crazy.

Got a call from a little birdie who tells me the building is sold. As I receive more information, I will get it posted.
Well, it's been 8 years since that awful day, and it really doesn't get better. All year long it kinda feels like it's getting better, but as the days draw closer it kind of slows down again and it begins to set in. Like I said, September is a weird month for me, and this day starts it all. Do what you can, we have to get through it. We must reflect and remember the day. We have to remember the days and months after. We are New Yorkers, so it will make us slip and trip, but we'll be fine and stronger and better for it. Please take some time to watch Never Forget - Remember the Blood of Heroes and join us as we support each other today. God Bless America
I was looking through some scanned documents and came across these pics I scanned of a trip Rosanne and the boys took to the Twin Towers in the early 90's. This is the way it was, and at least we'll always have the memories and these images to draw upon.
You know, just the look on Nancy Pelosi's plastic face was worth the embarrassment of knuckle-head Joe Wilson shouting out and calling Dear Leader a liar at that speech before Congress ....
Here's a video the mainstream media, your friends if you live on the left, conveniently failed to show us. It's Tiger Woods' speech at the Obama Coronation, er Inauguration. Listen to his words, and you will understand why the MSM failed to inform We the People.
From my AJ, a very funny librarian joke.
A man went into a library and said to the matronly librarian, “I want a book on suicide.”
She looked up at him and said, “Fuck off. You won’t bring it back.”
I've always wanted to paint a mural on our roof of this 9/11 ribbon I've adopted. This weekend KM volunteered her great artistic abilities to this project and competed the ribbon and a peace sign that Ro wanted. It came out great and means so much as we approach 8 years. Never Forget 09.11.2001 ribbon. I am also curious to see how long it takes Google Maps to show the new roof.

A birthday shout out to our favorite bongo boy, BM. Have a great birthday my friend.
From KPakaMXS, should JaL ever decide to change careers, here's one he can pursue.
From my AJ, a joke about a situation I face each day at the office.
Every day, a male co-worker walks up very close to a lady standing at the coffee machine, inhales a big breath of air and tells her that her hair smells nice.
After a week of this, she can't stand it anymore, takes her complaint to a supervisor in the personnel department and states that she wants to file a sexual harassment grievance against him.
The Human Resources supervisor is puzzled by this decision and asks, 'what's sexually threatening about a co-worker telling you your hair smells nice?'
The woman replies, 'It's Keith, the midget."
It's definitely a good sign that Van Jones resigned, however, I think it took too long to happen. We the People need to keep up this sort of pressure, as it does work. And kudos to Glenn Beck who paved the way for this to occur. We need to continue challenging the picks and direction that dear leader is taking us, and get that man to get back to the center.
JjLJr got his Queens College Diploma in the mail today. Congratulations son, we are very proud of you.
Work continues on our new bocce ball courts down at Whitestone Park.
All sorts of couples were down the park this weekend. Even the horseshoe crabs enjoy the beach.
They are finally working on this old house near the Malba Circle. It's nice to see if beginning to shine and come to new life.
BF came across this prank played on an Italian mother by her son and a radio station. I gotta tell you, it sounds familiar.
With Labor Day weekend upon on, we no doubt will begin to see holiday commercials. Well, the Big Guy sends us the first Christmas gift commercial of the season. Merry Christmas, &itch
Here's the video piece of that WWF tsunami ad that used the 9/11 attacks as some sort of save the fucking planet message. Assholes. What's the damn point of the message ? What's one thing got to do with the other ?
We have a new cub field photographer who spotted this interesting sight of a motorcycle driving pooch. Good work JM, and we look forward to a fruitful and productive new career for you.
There's a new hot couple on the scene here in West Malba (CP). FjLnKK are lighting things up.
I spotted this big red beast coming down Roosevelt Ave near new Shea today.
Say goodbye to those orange seats on the 7 train. They are all being replaced over time with these blue ones. Supposedly there is a significant cost savings involved.

Well, it's September. I can't believe the year is nearly gone already. September is a weird month for me, so bear with me as I go thru some 'phases'.
Here's something we should be concerned about. Emergency powers that would allow our government to shutdown the internet in an 'emergency'.

Here another story about a criminal who got released early from prison for good behavior. The Iraqi shoe thrower is out early now too. Last week it was the Lockerbie bomber. Why couldn't they just behave better before committing their crimes ?
Remember that story about the missing and mysterious Russian freighter ? The story gets interesting.
Here's a fascinating story about a single molecule, one million times smaller than a grain of sand, pictured for first time
From AT, a link to recently declassified 9/11 aerial photographs. Very disturbing, but important to see and be reminded. Never Forget. God Bless America.
At the First Vermont Blues Festival, we got to see this great singer named Shemekia Copeland. She was from Harlem before moving to Chicago, and I even got to meet her and we gave her one of my Never Forget bracelets.
Anyway, here's an interview she did with Backstage @Mountain Stage. Get her album, she's pretty good.
And this is a great live video of her doing Never Going back to Memphis
And another good video - Ghetto Child , this girl is gonna be a big star
So now the crazies want to tie Ted Kennedy's death to the ObamaCare plan. Haven't you all been paying attention ? There are 2 points to be taken from Kennedy's death on this plan :
You know what you should do ? You can use Kennedy's death as the baseline to COMPARE what is in store for you, against the treatment he received. Before they scrub the news, go back two years and collect the articles. See what procedures he had, how often, how quickly they were done. See how many specialists he had working on his case. Ask if it was all necessary and meant to make him well. Ask if you can expect the exact same treatment, timing, expediency should similar or other ailments affect you or a loved one under ObamaCare. Yes, we can make use of his death, to ask real questions, with real life reference points, we can all now relate to with dear Teddy passing at this most important time in America. We the People have QUESTIONS
From TR, we have a lesson on a billion :
A billion is a difficult number to comprehend, so lets put that figure into some perspective
|A billion seconds ago it was 1959.|
|A billion minutes ago Jesus was alive.|
|A billion hours ago our ancestors were Living in the Stone Age.|
|A billion days ago no-one walked on the earth on two feet.|
|A billion dollars ago was only 8 hours and 20 minutes, At the rate our government Is spending it|
Now, let's take a look at New Orleans ..
Louisiana Senator, Mary Landrieu (D) Is presently asking Congress for 250 BILLION DOLLARS To rebuild New Orleans . Interesting number... What does it mean?
|Well .. If you are one of the 484,674 residents of New Orleans (every man, woman, and child) You each get $516,528.|
|Or..... If you have one of the 188,251 homes in New Orleans , your home gets $1,329,787.|
|Or..... If you are a family of four... Your family gets $2,066,012|
Washington , D. C -- HELLO! -- Are all your calculators broken ???
PS - I'm moving to New Orleans !!!
We enjoy looking at clouds, and I came across this image of what's known as 'morning glory' clouds.
So, I get these Mets tix from my friends, they give 'em to someone I know, and I ain't naming names, he sends me a text, says tix are for the 24th, I say gr8, I can't go, but know who can, so we arrange for MixxieSparkles and FjL the new crooner to go, leave the tix, leave the cash, life is good, head north for the blues, mixxie and the crooner head over to new shea on monday, ticket guy says sorry charlies, these ducats were for sunday, go away, mixxie puts on the waterworks, scores better tix, with free pop and refills, cases of life water, and life is good again, we call to check, they tell us story, we say holy cow, sunday was history day with unassisted triple play, I tell someone I know, and I ain't naming names, that I got a story to tell, he says sure, you give away tix and someone else sees history, i say no way, tix were for yesterday, so no history to be seen, but 4 cases of sobe water, he says, see, it's all good !!!
Here are the pics from our weekend in Vermont at the First Vermont Blues Festival - Aug 2009 at Mt. Snow. Great show, super performances.
So, those CIA techniques were rough on those poor detainees huh? Perhaps we should have just thrown them out of 110 story burning buildings. Or better yet, throw their kids from the top of the burning WTC towers and let them watch. Fuck them all. Who fucking cares how we got them to talk, they talked is all that matters. We the People say, throw them in the pit at Ground Zero and let the families at them. That's compassion for the families, and justice for the rest of us.
It's that time again at the Bank. Time to swap out all the PC's. Here we have our DSS team handling our workstations. Thanks guys.
Work continues on the NY Public Library steps.
SAY's mom is in town. She stopped by to say hello and take this photo.
We all go to doctors. Some more often than others. But, we all go. Do yourself a favor. Each time you go to one, or know of someone who goes to one, begin to ask the doctor questions. New questions. Ask him what would happen with your visit, if this was under the new ObamaCare program. His answer will lead to you asking more questions. Just ask every doctor, and collect responses, then sit and think about it. Think about it. We the People need to start asking questions. And We the People need to hear the answers.
If you're looking for a real comfy chair for your yard, or other place with limited space, consider buying the AirChair. We saw these in Vermont at the Blues Festival, and they were very comfortable. Reasonably priced as well.
If you have some time, stop over at the Free to Breathe website and make a donation to a family facing lung cancer.

I see that Ted Kennedy finally died. Good fucking riddance. Perhaps now, the family of Mary Jo Kopechne will finally rest knowing this asshole is dead. Remember Chappaquiddick - hopefully also, the Kennedy dynasty ends too.
Here's a special Public Service Announcement - Don't text & drive from Jack's Musings. Thank you to the Gwent Police
It's time for another Musings Poll - Overall, How do you rate Obama as President?
WorldNetDaily was on a roll today. A gaggle of great articles to consider. Here goes :
From DpF, up Buffalo way, an article warning about Obama's plan to desecrate 9/11. Don't buy into this sappy National Day of Service crap, it's for the weak minded amongst us. And you all know who you are, right ? September 11th must remain as a solemn day of remembrance for those that were lost. And a day to Never Forget what fucking animals did to America that day. Animals who deserve no compassion, understanding or tolerance. Why, cause those things are 2 way streets.
I'm sure by now you might have heard about, read about, or even watch Glenn Beck. Well if you haven't, check out this updated list of Reasonable questions for unreasonable times. No matter you're opinion, won't these questions stimulate conversation ? potentially enlighten the many ? Remind you that We the People are what matters, and deserve accountable answers for basic questions.

Thinking about using that new 'low-level laser' therapy to help you quit smoking ??? Well, think again, and read this letter sent to the FDA about this device and the way certain companies are marketing it. It's illegal. It can be harmful to you, and you should not be so weak minded as to think this silly procedure would actually help you. If you don't want to smoke any more, just fucking stop. Grow the fuck up and just stop. Otherwise, just cut down smoking, count the cigs you haven't bought, and enjoy the rest of your life.

I came across this great sight with various text tags done in a butterfly motif.
Have you heard about the elephant that fell into a manhole while texting ? Rumors are it was actually sexting, but either way, they gotta outlaw this behavior.
What should we make of our President lying about things at townhalls ? He used the phrase 'AARP endorsed the bill', despite the fact they haven't endorsed anything. The sheople only hear what he said then, not the facts and end up believing our leader when he is simply playing with their heads. We the People don't like to be lied to.
I think there is a very basic question for our congressman. If the Obamacare plan is so good for Americans, why are they specifically excluded from having to use the plan ? It's only for us, not them. Shouldn't they lead by example, and adopt their own plan for 2 years, then we can see how they liked it before putting any change to a public referendum.
You see, I think that if the Scots are going to release the Lockerbie bomber on compassionate grounds that he has prostate cancer, they should at least drop him off at the town square and let the families of the victims greet him, so they can apply some of their compassion. What say you ? I know that was a run on sentence, but there really was no other way to say it.
We had a nice little luncheon yesterday to celebrate Jack & LJs 30 year anniversary at the Bank. Thanks for all our friends who stopped by and the many kind words we each received.
I just love watching astronomers and scientists explain things they have never seen before, and otherwise can't account for. The shock, surprise, clear lucid speculation. So heartwarming to me, to know they have us covered. See what they say about discovering a tropical storm on Saturn's moon TItan. As we say about our new life safety director, 'we're all going to die'
Ain't it interesting as Iraq announces it is working to ban dual-citizenship for it's top leaders ? Seems they want to ensure top leaders are 'natural born citizens'.... just like America...
If you are a star gazer, starting tonight the annual Perseid meteor shower is expected to put on a good show all week for those willing to get up in the wee hours of the morning and wait patiently for the shooting stars. I did it last year, and it was a wonder to watch. You don't have to stay up long and you will enjoy it.
The city just began work on the new bocce ball courts at Whitestone Park. Looks like there will be 2 brand new courts, set up quite nicely by next Spring.
Here's a popular message I've been getting.
Thomas Jefferson said after sigining the Decleration of Independence that we finally had a form of Government that allowed people to benefit or fail based on the merit of their own hard work and inguniety. We should not allow ther government to establish any further entitlements. I urge all of you to get involved. Write your congressperson. and tell them to stay out of your personal business. We must work to prevent the collapse of the best medical system in the world.
From DpF, up Buffalo way, Slip and Fly and the amazing waterslide jump. I guess it could be faked, but it does look good.

Hey VM, and everyone else, head over to Open Congress to view the bill HR 3200 : America's Affordable Health Choices Act of 2009.
It's interesting how today's anti-Obama voices are criminals, but those Bush-bashers the past 8 years were patriots. Gotta love hypocrisy, especially when it's not even wearing a mask. Our community organizer in chief doesn't like the organized reaction to his death care plan... Can you imagine Bush/Ashcroft coming up with the snitching emails program ?
I made a few posts about a year ago about many countries building some sort of mass population 'camps'. I don't believe they are for dissidents, since it began years ago under Bush. I'm still of the opinion they are in anticipation of some large scale 'event'; be it 'man-made', weather, health or 'outer-worldly'...
Here are some of those older posts
Walking thru the zoo, we came across what looked liked a early stage baby squirrel on the ground. We think it fell from a nest above the walk. We alerted a zoo attendant who safeguarded it. It was barely alive when we left.

A couple of Happy Birthday shout outs to my bro-in-law, BA and our friend from down NC, TR. TR continues to recuperate from recent surgery, and we wish him well.
It's been 18 years since I quit smoking. At the rate I was going, it means I've avoided smoking 13,140 packs, or 262,800 cigarettes, for an approximate cost of ~$91,980. I should have banked all this cash.
Our Man about town, CH passes us this video clip from the Apollo 40th anniversary of the moon landing. A press conference with several astronauts. At around 57:20 of the clip, our friend TC asks a question.
Check out the new posters circulating out of LA of our president.
From KP, a very freaky pic of my boys, er daughters...
Ro and I enjoyed a very nice lunch and afternoon with Zelda. No one believes she's turning 99 in December.
Had a good time at Jones Beach the other day with my Bro and his family.
This one is for my friend SAY. He never believes me when I tell him, I was born in Harlem. Here's St. Lucy's Church, where I was baptized.
The bees are back. The bees under the pool rim really seem to like that location. I gotta find a better way to get rid of them. Any ideas ?
Has Barry's Kenyan birth certificate been found ?
In case you're being silly about the whole thing, this is the type of birth certificate we expect el Presidente to provide.
Check this story out. The home plate from Shea Stadium was on the Space Shuttle mission to fix the Hubble Telescope.
What a way to start August. From JpL, down Port St. Lucie way, a senior moment :
I was in the pub yesterday when I suddenly realized I desperately needed to fart. The music was really, really loud, so I timed my farts with the beat.
After a couple of songs, I started to feel better. I finished my pint and noticed that everybody was staring at me.
Then I suddenly remembered that I was listening to my I-Pod.
Today marks 30 years that I started working at Republic National Bank (now HSBC). I started out as a 3rd shift operator, working alone on weekends and holidays and worked my tail off for the company to rise to where I am today. It's been quite an experience and one that I am quite proud of. I think I've done well for the company, and for my team of professionals. Congratulations to me on this major accomplishment... And thank you to my beautiful bride, Rosanne, who encouraged me, pushed me, let me whiteboard ideas and for just putting up with me through the years. (I'm still the world's best putterupperer...)
Jack & LJs 30 year anniversary at the Bank - photos from our luncheon
This is interesting, even the Huffington Post writer Mark Joseph is calling for Barry to release his birth certificate. As he notes :
"... Most American's aren't Birthers or anti-Birthers, but we are beginning to wonder why the president doesn't put this one to rest once and for all. Every day he allows this circus to continue is another day that he behaves less like the President of the United States facing weird accusations from fringe groups and more like a strange politician flying to Argentina to visit his soul-mate while pretending to be hiking the Appalachians..."
Roving Reporter weighs in on the birth certificate situation with this interesting image.
From the Big Guy, WFP, an Abbott & Costello lesson on unions and the stimulus plan.
I had one of those extremely rare bouts of creativity this weekend, accompanied by intense manual labor. I built a replacement wooden flower box for the front of the house. I think I did pretty good, considering I don't do too much tool work. Jack builds a flower box.
We had a very nice BBQ with my AJ & UD and family this weekend. And a few of our butterflies emerged as well. See our Syosset BBQ & Butterfly pics
From AT, a very interesting site. Wolfram|Alpha - computational knowledge engine
From the Big Guy, WFP, sometimes being an inventor isn't all that great.
Dr. Calvin Rickson,
a scientist from Ohio State University , has invented a bra
that keeps women's breasts from jiggling and prevents
the nipples from pushing through the fabric when cold weather sets in.
At a news conference, after announcing the invention,
a large group of men took Rickson outside and kicked the shit out of him ! !
Our CEO Award winner, ShR just received this invitation - How cool is this ?
Dear CEO Award Winner
On behalf of Brendan McDonagh, CEO of HSBC-North America, you are
cordially invited to participate in the ringing of the closing of the New
York Stock Exchange in celebration of HSBC’s 10th Anniversary being listed
on the exchange.
On Wednesday, August 5, HSBC executives will visit the NYSE and we would be
delighted for you to attend.
Ro took a nice pic of the boys at Jones Beach the other day. Don't the brothers look kool together ?
These photos clearly show the end of a really bad day off the Whitestone Bridge.
They have started a huge project to repair the stone steps at the New York Public Library.
From our friend DPF up Buffalo way, a warning sign for hunters. Read it all, it's important to your safety.
Ro and I had a great weekend recently down at Sandy Hook. We also joined our friends at FirstTech's day at the Races over at Monmouth Park. We even got to take pics with the winning jockey in the Winner's Circle. How cool was that. Pics are coming soon
Our dear friend TR just had knee replacement surgery yesterday and is doing well. Good luck my friend.
Also from DpF a lesson in Socialism that even our students can understand. We the people hope that is...
This Professor has it right. Great experiment.
An economics professor at a local college (not Berkley) made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had once failed an entire class.
That class had insisted that Obama's socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama's plan". All grades would be averaged and everyone would receive the same grade so no one would fail and no one would receive an A.
After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.
As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.
The second test average was a D and no one was happy!
When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. The scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.
All failed, to their great surprise, and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.
Could not be any simpler than that.
It's been a while since we got something good from Roving Reporter, and this one's a beaut. To The Moon Alice.
Checkout the Dexter Season 4 trailer.
Check this story out. It seems that Obama had 17 outstanding parking tickets dating back to 1989-1991. From where you ask ? Well, from Cambridge, MA of course. And here's the best part. He didn't pay them until weeks before announcing his candidacy for president.
Here's some slick technology. Wireless power.
Good to see that Lou Dobbs is still on the birth certificate story. Cause there is a story there. We the people require that we see this document.
Barry's lies just keep getting better. Where is the media doing their job ? How can he remember the Apollo capsules splashing down in the Pacific while living in Hawaii, when he was living in Indonesia those years ?
So, in one sentence during his press conference, Barry stated he didn't know all the facts about why that black scholar was arrested, but he still had to opine - Police acted "stupidly" arresting black scholar. He was arrested for acting like a retard when the cop was only trying to help. Resist that urge to speak, unless and until you have more information. It's like shooting pool, resist the urge to hit the ball too hard. Soft shots run the table.
We the people insist that any bill Congress passes, applies to all members of Congress too. Otherwise, what sort of government would we have if laws and bills didn't apply to the chosen elite of Congress.
We the People better wake up soon. We the people insist you read bills before voting on them. We the people feel there should be one version of the bill to read. We the people don't believe in czars. We the people don't want to fundamentally change America. We the people are watching you.
How many czars are there now ? Do you know what the definition of czar is ?
1. an emperor or king.
2. (often initial capital letter) the former emperor of Russia.
3. an autocratic ruler or leader.
4. any person exercising great authority or power in a particular field: a czar of industry.
How the HELL are We the People accepting this ?
Heard a new joke today. What's black & white and red all over ? --- Barack Obama

Check this story out. That earthquake in New Zealand MOVED New Zealand.
Here's an interesting story about the reason why Judge Sotomayor's vote was rescheduled. She might be better off arrested.
While our government distracts s with health care plans, gun ownership bills, taxes, socialism, etc, we must remind ourselves there are other people out there who also want to KILL us. Read this story about a guy who was just arrested for giving Al Qaeda NYC transit information, before it disappears and be ever vigilant. Never Forget !
Here's an enlightening article by Joe Farah about just 2 of Barry's latest unconstitutional czars - Obama's radical, anti-American czars , One of these guys even advocated a global police force to keep population down. And they said Dubya was a fascist.
Scooby sends us this link regarding a new bill making it's way through Congress, H.R. 45. If it passes, gun ownership will be impacted and extremely impaired. Not a good sign for our liberties.
Scooby gives us a nice read on the state of Data Centers these days. I can see some big changes in our future. Pages 4 and 5 are quite interesting.
Scooby's got a beef, and he ain't afraid to express himself. That was no way to find out about Emerson's latest news - Emerson's New State-of-the-Art, Energy-Efficient Data Centers. Not after all the support he gave and valuable design feedback. And the way I recall it all, it all happened inside MY data centers.
Visit his blog Scooby Says - “It’s all good” for the latest updates from his latest adventure
Did you read the story about the asteroid or comet that hit Jupiter a few days ago. Wild. Check it out and note that NASA didn't know anything about it, and it was a chance sighting by an amateur.

It was great to see AJ, KT and S in the lobby the other day. You guys look great.
Please take some time to read this article and few others of your own choice. Before our Congress helps slide us ever closer to Socialism, read how one this passes, it will be ILLEGAL to acquire or be offered an individual health care plan, outside of the governments. It's explicitly written into the bill. So, call your congressman and tell him to vote against it.
If traffic is like this at the Utopia exits, it's gonna be a real bad ride to the park... This was due to closing of the Throgs Neck Bridge.
Me and my honey came across this $1,500 guitar at a garage sale.

We had a very nice lunch today to celebrate the 5 year anniversary of PA.
Look how handsome FjL is ? He is one hot CPdude.
We caught one of our butterflies as it began to emerge from it's cocoon. Check these pics out. Rosanne's Butterfly - July 2009
From my honey, and interesting story about How the Declaration of Independence Changed the World
Here's a site I will be checking more often now. NYPD Crime Statistics page
You know it's summer vacation when FjL sports a new radical doo...
I know what you are going to say. Enough already Jack. It's a 'mute' point. But just take a minute and stop and really think about it. Here's a very interesting story about that hospital in Hawaii that 'claims' they got a letter from our 'President' that states he was born there. They show the letter and all on their site. Trouble is, it ain't an image of the letter. It's html code made up to 'recreate' the letter. Is the letter a fake ? Everyone else thought he was born at the other hospital on the island. None of this would matter if he would just do like Ro had to do to renew her license, and show us his damn long form birth certificate. I wonder if he wrote about the place of his birth in any of his 2 books....
The Big Guy, WFP asks that we checkout and watch this We the People Stimulus package video.
I hope that the comments our retarded, retiring Supreme Court justice inspire the pro-choice bunch. It's a revealing look at the true mind of a liberal. The all knowing, and powerful master. I wonder if she lives near any "populations that we don't want to have too many of." Where's NOW now ?
From our friend up north, DF, a sad but true story. Joe legal vs. Jose illegal
Happy Birthday Dubya, We miss you. Enjoy your birthday.
and after just 7 months of retirement...
Has the latest crop circle predicted our planet being hit by a Coronal Mass Ejection tomorrow ? The scientists are watching.
Here it looks like those sunspots have started. Hold on for a bumpy ride.
Here's a very interesting article that suggests the Russians believe they know what downed the 2 jets that crashed recently. I like the tie-in to Nibiru at the end. Even Yemen has canceled flights along that route. Perhaps there is something top this after all.
I love the idea of this story. Another Human Civilization living in Earth's hollow?
Pretty interesting news about Sarah Palin resigning as Governor of Alaska.
CB 7 OKs police academy in College Pt., road fixes. I know this sounds good, but do you know what the conditions are going to be like for the next 7-10 years ?
Have a Happy and Safe 4th of July today. God Bless America
Our first butterfly emerged yesterday. What a beautiful sight.
JaL graduated from the New York City Police Academy today. Very nice ceremony. Poignant words by Mayor Bloomberg and Commissioner Kelly. I believe he is the first Leone or Albanese to become a police officer. We are certainly proud of JaL as he continues to pursue his goals in life. We wish him luck as he begins this new phase of his career. We know how much this means to you, and we will always be there to support you, encourage you and to remind you to always be honorable as you go about policing this fine city. It will be challenging and rewarding. Your mom and I will always be worried about you, yet comforted in knowing that our son is out there helping all New Yorkers, every hour, every day. We are all part of a much larger family now and we look forward to sharing this experience with you. Be safe out there son. I Love You !!!
When Helen Thomas wakes up at a press conference and laces into the press secretary, you know things are starting to get unglued for the anointed one. Just watch that mary, Robert Gibbs squirm, about not having an answer because he didn't know she was going to ask a question. It's beautiful, and makes her point best. Ain't a free press great when one party doesn't know the question ahead of time ???? I guess to illegal aliens this guys is amazing, but to us redneck americans, he's a putz.
It sounds to me like Honduras was exercising a fast-track impeachment of it's president. Barry should take the same approach he did with Iran. Stay out of the internal politics of another country. I think what worries old Barry and the progressives is how the Honduran people exercised their constitutional rights.... We might do well to review the approach they took.
