  1. I couldn't get past this headline -- at least for now:

    A 47-Story High-Rise Has a Tall Problem: They Forgot the Elevators

    I just burst out laughing at that. Thank you for the First Chortle of the Day. I hope it won't be the last.

    The callers on C-Span this morning have been even more depressingly ignorant and inarticulate tan usual. The issue of course is Those Rotten Republicans Trying to Destroy the American Economy by Attempting to Blackmail Congress into Repealing OBAMACARE.

    God in Heaven!

  5. Affirmative action is another form of Nincompoopery! But depends on who you are and how you look at it. Government dependency certainly helps blacks stay poor and at the bottom of the social latter so to speak. I guess if you're a racist Democrat that's a good thing. For example, it seems to be working fine for those blacks who profit off the race baiting business. They've got a whole bunch of extremely low information idiots to bamboozle while they work the lucrative system. First, it tends to hand a man a fish instead of teaching him how to catch one. Second, it also tends to lead to dependency, which is one of our biggest problems today, in my opinion.

    Because of affirmative action the Progressives/Democrats have enslaved the black community into generational poverty.
    Even my saying so will cause the Progressives/Democrats to scream "Racist” but who cares? Let them keep lying to themselves. That's EXACTLY what the left has been doing for years. And the problem has just gotten worse, for BLACKS and minorities. But, they LIKE it that way, because it keeps the Dems in power. Problem is the candy store is going broke and the freebies are going to have to stop. Then the left won't have any more CRAP to talk or freebies to hand out to it's slaves. Their world will come crashing down, all in due time, and the time is drawing near. And by burying their heads in the sand doesn’t make the fact go away.
    But keep being ignorant, that exactly what these Commies like Obama want.

  6. Don't be fooled by President Obama's words, Obama has proven to be a war dictator . (Humm, isn't that what they said about George Bush?)
    Obama talked himself into a corner and lacks support from 99% of Americans (not really 99%). Obama caused this problem, now he is using congress to get him out of this mess. Congress can say no to a strike against Syria and Obama never gets blames by the mindless Obama-bots for being the sole person who tried to start another war.

  7. Great post Always On Watch,as always. I look forward to these Nincompoopery blogs, it lets me get a few things off my chest. Today it's the War In Syria, or the "possible war in Syria"

    Nearly 1,500 are dead in the worst chemical attack in the 21st Century, including hundreds of children. A red line has been crossed and America’s prestige and credibility at stake, not just in Syria but for any rogue nation looking to challenge the United States: Iran, North Korea, Venezuela. But getting Congress to approve even limited action in Syria, as President Obama asked them to do today, is going to be tough.
    1,500 were dead because of chemical attack, if US is to attack Syria, more than 15,000 lives will be endangered, and how many of those woll be American lives?.

    In light of the new possibility of "War" in Syrian announced today by Obama.
    I have a question: Does the U.S. have any allies lrft now that Obama is in office? If you don't have to plan to send in troops. You don't have to commit to long-term opposition to tyranny. But don't freaking announce that War is around the corner .
    America is sick to death of these offensive and interventionist wars. We have been in the Middle East since Carter. Kerry should be more than familiar with chemical weaponry, as are all the boomers who experienced Vietnam. Maybe those in Congress that are pro offensive wars should be the first one to serve...including Obama ala George Washington. The President’s children should start serving in these wars, and members of Congress’s children also, if they are so quick to call out the military, and continue bankrupting this country. At this rate, we won't have any (or many) young men left. Maybe that is the idea? Kill all the young men so that those old foggies have more young women to choose from in their dementia?
    So why would we intervene in Syria. Syria is not an ally of America and the Syrian people don't like us. There is no American interest at stake. We are not the world's policeman. Leave Syria to the rest of the world. Let's sit this one out!

      What did Obama say today? I've been out of loop most of the morning and into the afternoon because I had to give a piano lesson, followed by private tutoring.

  8. There is an old saying with is "If it's not broken then don't fix it" The current healthcare system may have some faults, nevertheless to replace it with the worse system of Obamacare is folly ,follishness and even madness. Futhermore, there is also an very old saying From the Far-East which is that "Nothing is so bad that action will not make it worse."
    With the placement of Obamacare instead of the current system of healthcare will prove that ancient proverb out to be true.

    1. NANCY PELOSI says:

      You can't possibly know that the Affordable Healthcare Act will do harm until after it's been cemented firmly in place for several years, so your remarks amount to nothing more than idle speculation. We'll all have just have to wait and see how much damage it's going to do. I've been looking forward to it for years, myself. So should you, if you're a good American.

    2. Well Nancy, how about this: let’s operate on you without really knowing the extent of the problem … just to see how it turns out. We can always operate on you again later on; you know, to make some minor adjustments. Or bury you, which is also an option.

      The entire basis for a communist takeover of US healthcare was the supposition that there were, in America, 50 million people without healthcare. Given the number of people living in the US, 50 million wasn’t a very large percentage: 15%. Who, but a maniac, would want to change the entire system for a little more than ten percent of the entire population? Moreover, leftist politicians skewed the statistics in order to achieve a peculiar result. Of those 50 million people, between 15 and 20 million were illegal aliens. Of the remaining 30 million, half were young people who declined employer provided health care.

      Healthcare is an extra-constitutional infringement by the federal government. It is a function of the several states. If we merely extrapolate the remaining 15 million people to the 50 states, each of whom could address the needs of 600,000 people, there is no justification for this rape of the American health care system.

    1. At the time the shooting started, there were only six civilian police officers on duty at the Navy Yard. Five of these were on fixed post assignments, and one ... the chief, was on roving patrol. We should wonder why the DoD decided to convert these posts from military to civilian billets, why those who get such jobs are so poorly trained, and why they were inadequately staffed.

      Makes you wonder, though ... was this another "test" assault?

  11. Aha! A clue as to why Obama hasn't reacted to today's Islamic terror attack at the Kenyan mall.

    This particular Kenyan mall is frequented by Westerners.

    From the link:

    Sky News is reporting that the US State Department has confirmed US citizens are among the casualties.

  12. Also from the link:

    ...The gunmen had announced that they were targeting non-Muslims as they began their attack at the centre.

    Too much attention to this story would result in debunking the whitewash of Islam. Therefore, what's happened in Nairobi today will be given short shrift in the media and from BHO.

  13. Obama can really tell some whoppers. I heard him yesterday I think it was, telling his captive audience how much cheaper health care is not. I waited to see if his nose grew.

    The 'no guns' and 'no ammunition' on military bases is one of the dumbest decisions I have ever heard. The military has been disarmed on their own bases, what a stupid idea.

  17. This past week Obama gave another one of his repulsive, and offensive speeches. Part of what made it so was his accusation that Republicans in the House would rather mess with him, than do him, than do what is right for the American people. Notice that he said “him, than do what is right for the American people” Is that “HIS” interpretation of “what’s right for the America people” or the America people’s?
    He once again inferred that same old sickening, hateful, detestable, accusation that Racism was the cause of the people’s objection to his failed policy.
    When it’s really him and the progressives who are the ones playing the Race Card, And examples of that are as follows.. ..Progressives treat blacks as victims in need of kid glove treatment and special favors, and they will never let go of the "Slavery" issue.
    Obama and his Progressives claim that Obamacare Opponents are Racists!
    Bottom Line is that RACE RELATIONS PLUMMETED EVER SINCE OBAMA TOOK OFFICE!
    These Ignorant Progressive TWITS, who the hell do these people think elected Obama, if not the Whites?
    The NAACP have showed us that they are nothing more now than a Black KKK Mob. We all are quite aware of the Black Racism shown when the George Zimmerman lynch-mob-job were trying to lynch him, even before he had a TRIAL!. Didn’t they /Malik Zulu Shabazz offer a $10,000 bounty for him Dead or Alive? He even put up posters declaring him, "Wanted, Dead or Alive."! What the hell was with that? Is this thje Old West, offering "Wanted, Dead or Alive." bounties?
    He also went after the jury who found Zimmerman not guilty.

    ReplyDelete
  18. And ever since Zommerman’s acquittal, death threats have continued to pour in against Zimmerman, his wife, his attorney and even the jurors in the case. Since he as made these threats shouldn’t this nutjob have been arrested? So why not?
    Remember the Black Panther's calling for killing of cracker babies!
    So why did Black people vote for Obama in the first place?
    Plain and Simple, Because of Racism. They voted for him because of Obama's blackness (or half black) or whatever.. So despite decades of voting Democrat, this time they voted for Obama based on race.
    And because of Free stuff. Obama promised a bunch of "free stuff" such as cell phones."Obama Phones"
    Free healthcare? Yes, mean Obamacare!
    Free food stamps. .Free housing, Free Cars,Free abortions Free TV’s, Free everything!
    So, why did blacks vote for Barry??
    Real easy. Because he's the first black ever elected to POTUS. He's black and thats why they voted for him. Most of em could care less how the country runs. Its all about his half blackness.
    No big shocker, and no need to deny it. Unless of course you're a FREAKING IDIOT and a LIAR like most of these progressives are.
    When groups like the NAACP who should be celebrating an African-American becoming a US Senator, and then the President of the United Stated of America no matter which party they belong to…instead they act like the biggest racists and bigots around if the person just happens to be a Republican! . The NAACP is nothing more than a Racist Hate Group!
    Anyone that claims Obama is not a racist is a whack job who can’t see the forest thru the trees. Look at the "church" he comes from. Look at the Pastor in that church ! Obama was married in that church and by Rev. Wright himself and sat there for 20 years and never heard a racist remark? Are you kidding me?
    And lets not forget that Obama’s wife Michelle has never been proud of this country until Obama became a candidate for the US. Presidency.
    Obama stuck his two cents into the Professor Henry Gates incident and the Trayvon Martin “ he could have been My Son” but there was not a word from the President about that thirteen month old baby who was shot in the face and murdered by a black teen.
    Nor a word said about the old man who was beaten to death, again by black youth.
    Not a word about Malik Shabazz (the new black panther leader), who announced he hated white people, and they should be killed, including white babies.
    Where was Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, and all the other black activists when the 14year old black girl was killed on a drive by in Chicago or the 1year old white baby was shot by two black youths in front of his mother! Finally, there are scores of black youth, who are killed by others of their own race.

  23. Al Sharpton is an ASSHOLE. Pure and simple. Al Sharpton is so wrapped up in "Race Baiting" that he is blinded to all other matters dealing with race history or any other subject. He needs to get over playing the race card. I don't see all the other people from other countries crying out. they aren't complaining that they are discriminated against. Most are hard working citizens, not gang members and such that suck off the government for handouts. One thing about blacks in other countries is that other countries will not put up with their shit like the U.S. It is way past time for this country to admit we have a black problem and do something about it. Stop pandering these scumbags and make them either act like humans or get the hell out if they think they have it so bad.
    . He's a bottom feeder who enables himself via the ill informed & uneducated who don't know any better then to grab his bait and run with it. He knows exactly what he's doing, and does it without conscious thought. He has blood on his hands from the violence he has brought on innocent people at the hands of his hate mobsters.. The blacks need to get up off their lazy asses and find a job. I think if they get a welfare check those cities need to put them to work, some of these cities allow then to just sit around and collect checks while other cities have them clean up the roadways, clean city office buildings, pick up trash around city parks, along the bypasses. Take some pride in themselves. If it were up to Obama, he’d kiss their butts and hand them food stamps.
