Monday Musings With The Crew---Adios 2012

No dear readers, Sahib and I have not fallen over the fiscal cliff and taken our keyboards with us.  We've just been on a little holiday sabbatical, spending some time with friends and family.  Today, I'm sitting in my office watching the snow come down, and listening to clients calling in to cancel their appointments.  Ugh.  Anyway, on with the countdown.....

  • Frankly, I am sick and tired of hearing the phrase "fiscal cliff".  I have news for you.....we went over the fiscal cliff a LONG time ago.  To be precise, we did a full gainer off the cliff on October 3, 2008, when then President George W. Bush signed the TARP bill into law.  The only question now is do we limp away from the landing with our tax rates and national security intact, or do we auger into the ground and have Dear Leader drop an anvil on our head a la Wile E. Coyote.  Reminds me of the old Norm McDonald joke......"there's only two kinds of cliff divers, world champions......and stuff on a rock"   
  • As a young man growing up in Kansas, and then attending a land grant university (insert Silo Tech joke here), I am familiar with the old prank of "cow tipping".  What I didn't know is that the art has been perfected by our Russian comrades.....

  • In what is surely a more accurate sign of impending doom than any Mayan calendar, Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are having a baby.  Obviously the child will grow up to be a well-adjusted member of society, and make great contributions to the furthering of the human condition. We can only hope the little whippersnapper is smart enough not to donate any money to his daddy's charities..
  • Pennsylvania police have charged Benjamin Klinger with a multitude of charges stemming from the death of his 17 year old girlfriend in a car crash.  Police allege that Klinger intentionally crashed the car the two were riding in (at over 100 mph), and then sat on his injured girlfriend until she died of suffocation.  Senator Diane Feinstein immediately reacted by adding "the sitting position" to her upcoming weapons ban bill.  
  • While we are on the topic of deadly about the story of Franziska Hansen?  The 33 year old German woman is accused of attempting to murder her boyfriend during sex by suffocating him with her 38 DD breasts.  The boyfriend, Tim Schmidt, was able to escape the murderous confines of Franziska's cleavage, and ran naked to a neighbor's home to call police.  Schmidt claims that Hansen later admitted to him her intent, saying "I wanted your death to be as pleasurable as possible". We should all be so fortunate.....In response to this story,  the state of Massachusetts has asked Barney Frank to register his bad boys as potential deadly weapons...

  • I don't know about you, but I am ready to kiss 2012 sayonara.  It was a crappy year for this country, for individual freedoms, personal responsibility, and most of the other things conservatives hold dear.  Chief Justice John Roberts lost his mind, the American electorate decided to vote for more handouts and less freedom, and the Kansas City Chiefs went 2-14.  Check please!

What Does "Gun" Control Really Mean?

Obviously our nation is currently embroiled in a vigorous "gun-control" debate.  The debate is doomed from the start, as the term "gun-control" is a non-sequitur.

Guns are inanimate objects, and as such are not subject to any laws or regulations.  They, like all inanimate objects, can respond only to physical forces and elements applied to them.  Press a gun's trigger firmly enough, and it will fire a chambered round.  Immerse it in water and metal components may rust.  Expose it to high enough temperatures, and it may melt into an amorphous blob.

Make no mistake, "gun-control" is about governmental control of people, not guns.  It is no different than any other governmental intrusion into the lives of the citizenry.  With each incremental increase in government's control over the populace, individual liberties take a corresponding decrease.  Many are comfortable having the federal government exert tremendous power over their daily lives, I am not.

I think what bothers me most about "gun" control advocates is their rank dishonesty.  I would have much more respect for them if they would just come out and admit that what they really want is a complete ban on private firearm ownership.  If only they would have the courage to boldly stake out their position, rather than cloaking it in politically palatable niceties.

This will never happen of course.  Statists learned long ago that rolling back liberty is much easier when done incrementally.  Me, I'm ready for the fight right now.   Come on you gun control pantywaists, make your play.  Knock on my door and tell me to turn my guns in.  Go ahead, make my day.

Evil, Not Elvis, Lives

With the horrible and tragic deaths that occurred last Friday in Connecticut, the hue and cry for more gun control laws has begun.  President Obama launched the first volley with his thinly veiled statement,
"These tragedies must end, and to end them we must change." 
I agree with President Obama, but I suspect our strategies to affect that change will be radically different.  Take a few moments to peruse the images below:

With one possible exception, does anyone believe gun control laws would have prevented the murders these men committed or for which they were directly responsible? And even in the case of James Holmes, as disturbed as he is, who is to say he wouldn't have gone the Timothy McVeigh route resulting in a greater loss of life.

As others have pointed out, including this post by the wonderful Dana Loesch, the majority of these mass shootings occur in "gun-free" locations.  She also emphasizes a point that many gun-control enthusiasts often neglect:  How many tragedies are stopped by law-abiding, gun-carrying citizens?  According to her post, American citizens use firearms in self-defense more than 2.1 million times annually.

Here is my suggestion for "change".  Put prayer back in schools.  Have school children say the pledge of allegiance every day through high school.  Create a national campaign touting the benefits of two-parent homes.  Teach children the constitution starting in elementary school.  Offer gun-safety classes in schools.  Re-introduce corporal punishment in schools.  Create a campaign that de-stigmatizes spanking the children at home.................   Unfortunately, unless you plan on home-schooling, these things will probably never happen, but here are some concrete solutions that we COULD institute:

  • In states that allow concealed-carry, severely curtail "gun-free' zones.
  • In all states, make schools concealed-carry zones for teachers and administration.  Allow teachers and administrators, if approved, to voluntarily carry concealed weapons and train them in the use of said weapons.  Keep a confidential listing of staff who is authorized to carry.  
  • Start a nationwide program for employers in hugely public-facing businesses that assists the employers in training their staff in firearm safety and self-defense.  Allow approved staff to carry concealed weapons.
You may think I'm kidding, but when was the last time you heard about some nutjob shooting up a NRA or Ducks Unlimited banquet?  Even with the Fort Hood shootings, the terrorist whack-job picked a spot on the post where he knew the soldiers would be unarmed.  

Will any of these measures completely stop EVIL people from doing EVIL things?  No, but they will be 100% more effective than adding more gun laws.  Just ask the people of Chicago how well gun bans are working out for them...

The Gun Debate- Must Watch Video Of The Year!

In the wake of the Newtown, CT shootings last Friday, I have struggled with what to say in this space.  If you are reading this, you probably already know that the right to keep and bear arms has no bigger supporter than me.  Rather than have me rehash the gun control debate with you, I want instead to share this video from a SACSTW favorite.  Ladies and gentlemen, the brilliant Kira Davis..........

When Did We Become a Nation of Pussies?

First of all, I would like to apologize for my vulgarity (sorry Mom), but I read a story that made me so angry that nothing else really seems to fit.  Maybe the Mayans have it right and the apocalypse is upon us because I never thought I would live to see the day when the US friggin A would so cravenly pander to our enemies.  And what, dear readers, you may ask, has driven Sahib, normally a pillar of decorum and restraint, into a vulgar fury?  Just read the title of this Fox News story:

"Proposed Army manual tells G.I.s not to insult Taliban, speak up for women"

In a quote from the article:
"A proposed new handbook for Americans serving in Afghanistan warns them not to speak ill about the Taliban, advocate women’s rights or criticize pedophilia"
And this gem taken from the proposed manual:
 "Many of the confrontations occur because of [coalition] ignorance of, or lack of empathy for, Muslim and/or Afghan cultural norms, resulting in a violent reaction from the [Afghan security force] member,"
Yes!  God forbid that we stand up for women, criticize pedophiles, and insult our enemies.  I am so sick of the idiots that think if we just empathize with our enemies they won't hate us.  If we were just nicer to them and didn't mention their abhorrent acts, we could then skip hand-in-hand with them through fields of daisies singing Coca Cola jingles. For those people, I say scroll back up to the top of this post and look at that picture again.

Try this one on for size.  Imagine the response you would have gotten if you had suggested to Patton that he refrain from criticizing Hitler?  Or encouraging MacArthur to empathize with the Japanese way of thinking after the Bataan Death March?

I'm glad my grandfather, a World War I veteran, and my wife's grandfather, a multiple silver star winner and D-day veteran are not alive to see what this nation has become.  I truly weep when I think that as a nation we have devolved to the point where we are instructing our fighting men and women not to speak out against evil.

Come on Mayans, drop that giant asteroid on us now.

Choose Death!

Doesn't that sound like an uplifting message for a license plate?

According to Fox News, apparently a federal judge in North Carolina feels the license plate displayed above is unconstitutional.  US District Court Judge James Fox has ruled the license plate violated the first amendment because North Carolina does not offer a similar product with an opposing view point. Here's a sample for them!

I'm sure that they won't have any trouble putting this on a license plate.  Again, I show my ignorance of the first amendment because, doggone it, I just cant find the opposing viewpoint provision. I see the part that talks about congress shall make no laws establishing a religion, but absolutely nothing about that says a state cannot put a slogan on a license plate.  Particularly one that has nothing to do with religion.  

So by this logic, a state would not be able to have a license plate that says "Say No to Drugs!" unless it offered one as well that looks something like this:

I just want to make sure that I have it straight...

Monday Musings With The Crew

  • All of this bashing of Obama for FEMA's handling of Hurricane Sandy has got to stop.  Oh wait, there hasn't been any bashing of Obama for Sandy, I'm confusing it with the incessant Bush-bashing over Katrina.  Well, the federal response to Sandy has been much better than Katrina, right?  Uh, maybe not.  According to a story at, early responders to Sandy were told to "go sight-seeing".  Interesting quote from one worker....."I worked in Katrina and Katrina was run better than Sandy".  
  • Yesterday was the first day same sex marriages could be performed legally in the state of Washington, and let me tell you it was FABULOUS!  I've included a few snapshots so SACSTW readers could enjoy from afar......
Hey, I thought these were same-sex marriages!  Oh, wait....

The bride was stunning in camouflage and a multi-colored beard...

Spouse A, check.... Spouse B, check....ummm- are we to Spouse C already?

Honestly, I've got no real beef with these people.  I guess it's the Libertarian in me, but same-sex marriage ranks pretty low on my list of threats to our country's future.  Unless of course Barney Frank is involved.

  • This morning I found a hilarious parody of  The page on the 2012 Obama Vacation is must read stuff..... I love the "if Congress doesn't act" vacation delay countdown timer!  Here is what is not so funny.  I didn't realize the page was a parody until I visited it a second time.  That folks, is a sad commentary on what we've come to expect from George and Weezy Obama.

  • Alberto Diaz Gonzalez pled guilty to smuggling charges in federal court last Thursday.  Upon returning to Miami from Cuba, Gonzalez was found to be hiding 16 Cuban his pants.  Gonzalez admitted to intending to sell the smuggled birds.  Kind of reminds me of the old joke about the guy taking his duck to the movies,  but I digress.

All Time Top Five Posts

Having reached a significant SACSTW milestone today, I thought we would give our readers who may have missed them the all-time Top 5 SACSTW posts.  Here they are:

#1 An Apology:  Video of the Year!  You Must watch!

#2  King, Mandela, Gandhi, and Barkin?

#3  Dude!  Where's my Lesbian?

#4  You Cry Harder!  North Korean Grief Reeducation

#5 Hollywood HOs Winner Morgan Freeman Marries his Granddaughter?

Hope you enjoy reading them as much as we enjoyed writing them!

Instead of Pissing Off People, Ed Asner is for Pissing on Them

Hollywood Hall of Shame
This week's Hollywood HOs  winner is no other than notorious Hollywood moonbat lefty Ed Asner.  Long known for his hatred of all things capitalist, Mr. Ed narrated a video for the California Federation of Teachers titled, "Tax the Rich: An Animated Fairy Tale".

Most notable in this little demonization of success video is a scene where rich people's concept of "trickle down" economics is demonstrated by a rich guy urinating on common folk from above.  Clever, yet repulsive.  But of course, in their usual display of spinelessness, once called on the carpet for something so outrageous, the CFT edited out the golden shower scene.  You can see the edited version below.  The edited scene occurs at the 2:50 mark.  It has been replaced by a still shot.

When questioned about this by Fox News, Mr. Ed was not only unrepentant, but asked if he could urinate on the Fox News employee.  You can view the edited scenes and Mr. Ed's request in this clip from the Sean Hannity Show:

What I find truly repulsive and frightening is that even a union in the People's Republic of California finds this load of Mr. Ed manure even remotely educational.  It is a fairy tale of falsehoods indeed.  Where did they get the idea for this propaganda abomination, the SKB (Stalin/Kruschev/Brezhnev) Cinematic archives?

You know the funny thing?  Lou Grant would have smacked Ed Asner upside his fevered head and said, "Grow a pair and get a clue, you whiny liberal piece of crap!"

Have a great weekend everyone!

Sir Charles Schools Costas on Guns

I've always liked Charles Barkley.  The Round Mound of Rebound is one of the most underrated "great" basketball players of all time.  To do what he did in the paint at his size shows a man with ferocious determination and will to win.  Not only that, but he may be the only man on the planet with a worse golf swing than me.  But I digress.

Barkley's outspokenness is another trait I admire in him.  Never one to shy away from controversial topics, his comments have often landed him in hot water.  I don't always agree with what he says, but this time he is absolutely spot-on.

The murder rate in the black community is not a gun issue, it's a crime and violence issue.  In this clip scheduled to air tonight, Sir Charles takes Bob Costas to school on gun ownership.....

Huh, whaddaya know?  A black athlete who has owned and carried a gun all of his adult life, and somehow has managed to not dump a magazine into the body of a friend or family member.  How can this be?  Perhaps its because Charles Barkley is not a murderous criminal, and Jovan Belcher was.  Period.  

I love the little anecdote about Tony Dungy at the end of Costas's pathetic whining.  He seems absolutely dumbfounded that 65 of the 80 Colts players owned guns.  Was there a twinge of underlying racism in his conjecture?  You tell me.  About 65-70% of NFL players are black.  If we apply that to the Colts training camp he was talking about.....about 45 of those gun-owning players were black.  Costas's firm belief that you can't have 45 black guys with guns without something bad happening seems far more racist to me than anything the Tea Party has had to say over the last few years.  

Come on Bob, what are you really saying?  That we just can't trust black guys, particularly black athletes, with guns?  

As far as Johnny Mac goes, I think we can all agree that it's probably not a good idea for him to carry a gun given his placid demeanor.....

NFL Player's Crime Fuels Anti-Gun Nitwits

My hometown NFL team, the Kansas City Chiefs, was rocked over the weekend by a heinous crime involving one of their players.  Early Saturday morning, linebacker Jovan Belcher shot and killed his 22 year old girlfriend Kassandra Perkins in their home.  Belcher then drove to Arrowhead Stadium, and killed himself in front of GM Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel with a gun shot to his head.  The couple has a 3 month old daughter.  

My focus today is not the crime itself, I will leave that to others more qualified.  I would like to discuss the entirely too predictable response by the anti-gun crowd.  Just as we saw in the wake of Aurora, this violent crime has given new vigor to those who would ban the private ownership of firearms.  In particular, let's focus on the comments by noted Constitutional scholars Jason Whitlock and Bob Costas.

Whitlock is a former Kansas City sports columnist and sports talk radio host who has been hired and fired by seemingly every sports media company in the country.  He currently writes for, and penned this column in response to the Belcher shootings.  I mined these little nuggets from the column....

...We'd prefer to avoid seriously reflecting upon the absurdity of the prevailing notion that the second amendment somehow enhances our liberty rather than threatens it.  

...What I believe is, if he didn't posess/own a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.

And the piece de resistance of anti-gun lunacy...

...Handguns do not enhance our safety.  

Whitlock's specious and intellectually bereft comments were echoed on NBC last night by Bob Costas during Sunday Night Football.  

Let's face some "ugly reality" as Mr. Costas puts it.  Human beings have the potential for great violence and depravity.  For some of us, that potential lurks closer to the surface than it does for others.  It can be enhanced by mental (and physical) illness, financial stress, interpersonal conflict, and any of thousands of other stressors.  When a human being succumbs to these demons, the availability or lack thereof of a firearm is not what determines the ultimate outcome.  Five minutes of Google research unearthed these recent events..
  • A Wyoming college professor was killed by his son in a murder-suicide committed with a bow and arrow
  • 64 year old Henry Hamilton killed himself by ingesting an overdose of prescription medicatons.
  • Janee Parsons, an American woman living in Oxfordshire, England was stabbed to death by her husband in front of their 2 children.
  • A Staten Island woman, Jodi Surinaga, was bludgeoned to death with a metal baseball bat.  The alleged assailant, her husband, attempted to hang himself with a belt after the crime.
  • Tim Schuster was bound to a chair by his wife, and died when she poured a barrel of hydrochloric acid over his body.
  • A Washington man, Mark Williams, was murdered by his wife with a large hammer.
  • 32 year old Lorna Valle drowned her two children, ages 1 and 5, in the bathtub.
  • Pravartika Gupta, a 25 year old Indian woman, was burned to death by her husband because she gave birth to a baby girl instead of a boy.  (Note to Mr. Gupta,  perhaps a quick biology review is in order.  The gender of a baby is determined by which chromosome (X or Y) it receives....from its father)
  • A Bronx man killed his 5 year old son with poisoned pizza.
  • An Azusa, CA man attempted to kill his wife by poisoning her Rice Krispies.  
  • Thomas Mortimer beat his wife, 2 children, and mother in law to death with several objects, including a frying pan
  • 28 year old Holly Solomon ran over her husband in a parking lot because he did not vote against Barack Obama in November's election.  Her defense of justifiable attempted homicide seems to have some merit.  
Bow and arrow, prescription medication, fire, cooking utensils, acid, pizza, Rice Krispies, hammers, cars, water.... you name it.  Deranged people will use any tool at their disposal to commit acts of violence that most of us simply can't understand.  There is one big difference between all these items and handguns......handguns are used in self-defense an estimated 2-3 million times a year in the United States.  Try that with a large pepperoni pie or a bottle of Oxycontin.

Breaking News- Democrat Leaders React To Reynolds Outrage

Earlier today I posted an article about Mel Reynolds, convicted sexual criminal and all around putz, throwing his hat into the ring for his old seat in Congress recently vacated by Jesse Jackson Jr.  I have spent the rest of today compiling a video montage of outrage expressed by various leading Democrats that such a man would dare to run under their party's banner........

Attention Rapists and Child Molesters! Filing Now Open For Illinois Congressional Seat

Mel in happier times, you know, before the sexual assault and bank fraud  convictions

Somehow the resignation last week of Congressman Jesse Jackson, Jr. slipped right past my eagle eyes.  J3 has been missing in action on Capitol Hill since taking medical leave on June 10, 2012.  At the time he cited "exhaustion" as the cause.  In August, reports surfaced that Jackson was in fact being treated for bipolar disorder. 

Looks like the 99.9% was in
charge on this day.
Mental illness is nothing to sneer at, but pardon me for viewing those reports with a slightly jaundiced eye.  Perhaps somewhere in J3's character is an ounce of decency and honor, and that small part of him was in constant conflict with the 99.9% that is a lying, thieving scumbag (google the name Pius Ailemen).  But I digress.  

I'm sure the October 12, 2012 announcement by federal prosecutors that they were conducting a criminal investigation of J3 for financial improprieties involving Congressional (taxpayer) funds had NOTHING to do with his resignation.  He probably just needs more free time to update his 1999 book..It's About the Money, How You Can Get Out of Debt, Build Wealth, and Achieve Your Financial Dreams.  The tome's original edition is 288 pages.  The 2012 update is 1 page long.  "Get elected to Congress and steal money from the American taxpayer.  The End."  But I digress.

J3's resignation surely brought hope to the voters of Illinois's blighted 2nd Congressional District.  Perhaps finally, a person of character, honor, and integrity would represent them in Washington D.C.  Uh, not so much.

One of the first "people" to announce his intention to run for Jackson's vacated seat was former Congressman Mel Reynolds.  You remember Mel right?  He was elected to the 2nd District Congressional seat in 1992.  Before his 2 year term was up, he was convicted on 12 counts of sexual assault, obstruction of justice, and solicitation of child pornography, all involving an underage campaign volunteer.  
Mel "Nobody's Perfect" Reynolds

In April of 1997, while in prison on those sex charges, Reynolds was convicted of 15 counts of various and assorted bank and securities fraud.  So he is quite a swell fellow.

While his announcing his plan to run for the vacant office, Reynolds was asked about his criminal history.  His response was very heartfelt and touching....and I quote....."The fact of the matter is, nobody's perfect.".  Indeed Mel, indeed.  

Editor's Note-  we at SACSTW apologize for the length of this post.  We hope our readers understand that while one is attempting to discuss the moral and character deficiencies of Democratic politicians, brevity is, well, problematic.

Arkansas Atheists- Charlie Brown Must Go!

A Christmas Story, Miracle on 34th Street, blah blah blah.  For my money, the absolute best holiday program is A Charlie Brown Christmas.   First airing in 1965, ACBC has become an annual treat, and is must-see TV in the Crew household.  It airs tonight on ABC at 8pm EST.  I'm not sure why it appeals to me so much, I've always had a fondness for classic comics and Charlie and the gang are the standard-bearers.  The incredible piano score and that droopy little tree always get me!

You know who doesn't like A Charlie Brown Christmas?  Atheists.  Specifically, Arkansas atheists.  An elementary school in Little Rock is under fire from the "Arkansas Society of Free-Thinkers" for daring to transport their students to a live performance of ACBC at a local church.  The play is set for Dec. 14th during the school day.  Students who CHOOSE to attend the event (it is not mandatory), will be required to pay $2 each to cover the cost of school bus transportation.

Anne Orsi, vice-president of the aforementioned "Free-thinkers" commented thusly.....

"We're not saying anything bad about Charlie Brown.  The problem is that it's got religious content and it's being performed in a religious venue, and that doesn't just blur the line between church and state, it oversteps it entirely."

I checked out the website of these brain-dead crapweasels, and found the following statement amongst their "goals". inform people of their First Amendment freedoms of and from religion, and to monitor and promote the awareness of local separation of church and state issues.

Atheists worship at a wall just like those at the Wailing Wall, they just do it in front of the mythical "Wall of Separation".  We've covered this numerous times at SACSTW, the separation of church and state is completely fictitious, and the First Amendment certainly offers no "freedom from religion" to the individual.  Heck I thought, maybe down in Arkansas there is such a theory, let's consult the Arkansas State Constitution....

We, the People of the State of Arkansas, grateful to Almighty God for the privilege of choosing our own form of government; for our civil and religious liberty; and desiring to perpetuate its blessings, and secure the same to ourselves and our posterity; do ordain and establish this Constitution.

"Almighty God", "blessings".......Yep sounds like a secular document to me.  Quite frankly, I am weary of this incessant bleating from the atheists that their rights are being violated by someone else's kid watching A Charlie Brown Christmas.  Of course the crap they spew piles higher and deeper this time of year, so I guess I should just thumb my nose at them and move along.  Would that they could do the same.

Monday Musings With The Crew

Wow, I must still be on vacation time getting MM out so late in the day.  It's true, I have been holed up in the SACSTW Ozark hideaway for the last several days.  Being a primitive outpost, the hideaway has no TV or internet capabilities save for my cellphone.  However, since my cell provider (T-mobile) evidently has constructed its network in mid-Missouri from kite string and soup cans, I was effectively cut off from the civilized world.  But I digress.

  • Can a Bieber get a break?  Remember when Justin Bieber was a cute little Youtube sensation?  Yeah, me neither.  Fresh off his on-stage vomition a few weeks ago, the Biebs has adopted a new look that is part MC Hammer, part Sha Na Na, and part Eminem.  He performed at halftime of the Grey Cup (the championship game of the Canadian Football Leage) over the weekend in his native Canada.  Fortunately, the Canucks had the good sense to boo him mercilessly.  I really have only one thing to say to the Biebs.....turn your damn hat around, you look like an idiot.

  • Continuing the theme of misguided A-listers, Jamie Foxx's comments at the Soul Train awards have stirred the pot a tad.  The Academy Award winning actor opened his comments this way....
It's like church in here.  First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama!

have a look for yourself

  • With Foxx and Biebs losing their minds, at least you can settle in and watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York without a care in the world, right?  Not so fast confetti breath.  Reports indicate that much of the confetti dropped on parade goers was shredded documents from the Nassau County Police Department.  Witnesses claimed that the strips of confetti contained Social Security numbers, addresses, bank routing numbers, etc.  Read more here.

  • Convicted killer Ronald Post has lost his latest appeal to delay his impending execution.  An Ohio judge denied Post's claim that his marked obesity (he weighs over 400 lbs) may cause him to experience severe pain during the execution.  Hmm.  I hope so.  

  • The official Crew nominee for the 2012 Darwin Award is 32 year old Edward Archbold.  Archbold choked to death after consuming dozens of live cockroaches in a bug-eating contest sponsored by a south Florida pet store. Wow, you'd think you would see people dropping dead in Waffle House parking lots everywhere!

Union Kills Twinkie the Kid!

RIP, Twinkie the Kid...

Talk about cutting off your nose despite your face...

The Bakers, Confectionary, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union or BCTGM  has killed Twinkie the Kid.  Because they refuse to make any concessions, the venerable 82 year old company Hostess will be shutting down and laying off 18,500 workers.  

Way to go union wonks!  Instead of pay and benefit cuts, 18,500 get 100% of NOTHING!  I mean heck, even the Teamsters were on board with Hostess.  But I guess I need to remember that Obama got reelected last week.  I guess the BCTGM union is counting on Obamaphones, 100 weeks of unemployment checks, Obamacare, and food stamps for doing nothing.  

Hmmmmmm.....  maybe that was their master plan from the beginning.

Chuck Woolery Chimes In On Assault Weapons- Must Watch!

Long-time SACSTW favorite and all-around good guy Chuck Woolery has a brand new video treatise out on assault rifles.  Loyal SACSTW readers know that the left's fanatical hoplophobia and obfuscation of the truth about guns is a sore spot with us.  We've talked about it in this space before.  Here's what Chuck has to say...

The real nugget in here is Ice-T's intellectually honest evaluation of the Second Amendment.  He's right, it has nothing to do with sport hunting, target shooting, or even personal self defense.  It has everything to do with the citizenry's ability to defend itself against a tyrannical government.  Methinks that is becoming more important every day.  Good on ya Chuck!

The Crew's Monday Morning Math Lesson

I suppose there is a reason I'm not in the election prediction business, it didn't go so well for me (or the country for that matter) last week.  I underestimated how thoroughly the progressivist entitlement cancer, seeded by Presidents Wilson and Roosevelt, had metastasized through the body of the American electorate.  

Since his re-election, Dear Leader has said that he will not support any fiscal plans that do not involve the rich paying higher taxes.  We've heard it all before, it's time for the rich to start "paying their fair share" in order to dig the country out of the financial hellhole it finds itself in.  

Attention Class, please open your Math With The Crew textbooks to page 27.  We will start today looking at tax data for 2009, as it is the most recent that is readily available. Let's establish some facts...
  • in 2009, the top 1% had a total Adjusted Gross Income (AGI) of 1.324 trillion dollars.
  • of that 1.324 trillion dollars, they paid 0.318 trillion dollars in federal income tax.
Let's say for the sake of this exercise, the federal government freezes spending today, and continues to operate indefinitely with the 1 trillion dollar annual deficit it currently has.  Given that the national debt is 16 trillion dollars, here is the question...

Q: How long will it take (based on 2009 data) to pay off the national debt if we taxed the top 1% at 100% of their adjusted gross income?  Scroll down for the answer.....

A:  The answer is a smidge under 267 years.  Yep, if we take every penny the top 1% make, and make sure the feds don't spend one more nickel a year than they do now,  we'll all be in high cotton in time for the 2279 Christmas shopping season.  Well, except for the top 1%, they'll all be broke.

 Class, repeat after me.....

The federal government is in this fiscal nightmare because of runaway spending, not because the top 1% are not paying their share.

Gee I Wish Obama was White!

You know devoted readers, I really wish Bronco Bama was white.  I'm really tired of every criticism of him and his big government socialistic policies somehow being racist.  I've seen some accusations that require  mental gymnastics with more spins and twists than a McKayla Maroney vault.  Granted there are some people out there making racist comments like:
  • At least I mean, you got the first mainstream African-American who is articulate and bright and clean.
  • He is light-skinned African American with no Negro dialect.
Anyone who says something like that should be publicly shunned and should lose their jobs right?  Unfortunately, our fellow citizens decided that Joe Biden and Harry Reid deserve to keep their jobs.  Anyone who has any desire (and the stomach) to see a sample of how the "tolerant" left handles African Americans with whom they disagree, check out what they had to say about actress Stacey Dash on Twitter when she had the temerity to voice her support of Mitt Romney before the election. 

Fortunately, there are still a few intrepid Americans trying to educate our children about Obamanomics as Steven Crowder is doing in this hard-hitting video:

BUT WAIT!!!!!  How did I miss it!  He's wearing a brown bear costume.  You know... brown like African Americans have brown skin.  And a bear... you know that President Obama used to go by Barry. That's the most thinly veiled racist attack on the president I have ever seen!  I am embarrassed that I posted his video on my blog.  But rats!  I can't figure out how to delete it so it will have to stay.

Well, I guess I'll just have to live with four more years of The Crew and I being branded racists until 2016 when Hilary runs... and then we get to be sexist.  Buck up little campers.  At least it won't be boring.

America Needs You Today

"Ask not what your country can do for you - ask what you can do for your country."

John F. Kennedy   Jan.20, 1961

Never in the almost 52 years since Kennedy said those words have they been more important than today.  

Time and time again throughout its history, the United States of America has been there for others during their darkest hours.  It has been the brightest point of light for untold millions to look to for inspiration, hope, and the chance for freedom.

Today, it is America that is in need.  Please answer her pleas for help today at the ballot box.  This is our last chance to peacefully restore America to the path she has carved out over the last 236 years.  

Barack Obama's promise to "fundamentally transform" America will come to grotesque fruition in a second term.  Freed from the need to curry political favor, he will run roughshod over the Constitution, over your personal liberties, and over the very foundation of our country.  

Americans have always answered the call when others around the globe have been in need.  Today we are the ones in need.  Please vote today to save this great country.

Monday Musings With The Crew

  • Barack Obama is a nasty piece of work, and only getting nastier as his personal Waterloo approaches.  Campaigning in Ohio on Friday, he exhorted supporters to not boo Mitt Romney, but vote because "voting is the best revenge".  Do you really need to know anything else about this petulant child?  Listen Barry, if anyone should be voting out of revenge, it is conservatives who despise what you have done to our country.  But we don't vote out of spite or revenge.  As Mitt Romney commented, we vote out of "love of country".  We don't want revenge.  We just want you to go away.
  • Apparently, so does Joe Biden.  At a campaign stop in Wisconsin on Friday, Jokin' Joe said this...."There's never been a day in the last 4 years that I've been proud to be his vice-president.  Not one single day".  

Believe me Mr. Vice-President, we feel your pain........

  • Can any of the talking heads and political pundits claim a 94.4% accuracy in predicting presidential election results?  The Washington Redskins can.  By losing to the Carolina Panthers yesterday, the 'Skins have all but guaranteed a Romney victory tomorrow.  In 17 of the last 18 elections, the Redskin Rule has been accurate.  A loss in their last home game before the election results in a loss for the incumbent President.  
  • Finally, here is what you all have been waiting for....the Crew's prediction for tomorrow.  Fourteen months ago, I predicted a defeat for Obama 2012 when a Republican won a special election in New York's 9th Congressional district.  I'm not backing off now.  Special janitorial crews have been sent into the offices and broadcast studios at MSNBC to remove all scissors, shoelaces, letter openers, and any other instruments that MSNBC personalities may use to harm themselves as the rout becomes inevitable tomorrow night.  
Romney  52%
Obama 45%

Romney wins a minimum of 300 electoral college votes

So dear reader, do what I am going to do tomorrow night.  Order a pizza, crack open a cold one, and watch as the American people strike another blow for life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Guess who Liberals REALLY Hate?

Can liberals hate anyone more than someone who made these statements?
  • Do not pray for easy lives. Pray to be stronger men.
  • Let us not seek the Republican answer or the Democrat answer, but the right answer. Let us accept our own responsibility for the future.
  • The ignorance of one voter in a democracy impairs the security of all.
  • (A favorite of mine) Washington is a city of Southern efficiency and Northern charm.
  • A young man who does not have what it takes to perform military service is not likely to have what it takes to make a living. Today's military rejects include tomorrow's hard-core unemployed.
  • Israel was not created in order to disappear - Israel will endure and flourish. It is the child of hope and the home of the brave. It can neither be broken by adversity nor demoralized by success. It carries the shield of democracy and honors the sword of freedom. 
  • The tax on capital gains directly affects investment decisions, the mobility and flow of risk capital... the ease or difficulty experienced by new ventures in obtaining capital, and thereby the strength and potential for growth in the economy.
  • I believe in an America where the free enterprise system flourishes for all other systems to see and admire - where no businessman lacks either competition or credit - and where no monopoly, no racketeer, no government bureaucracy can put him out of business that he built up with his own initiative.
  • The rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God.
What kind of lunatic right-wing nutjob came up with these doozies? Was it Reagan, Nixon, Goldwater, or W?  Man, this person must be the more hated by the left than any public figure in history!  Scroll down to see who it is..........

Liberal public enemy number #1.....

Monday Musings With The Crew- The Obama "Kid"eos

As election day draws inexorably near, I though I'd resurrect a couple of creepy kiddie indoctrination videos from Dear Leader's first campaign.  Just a little reminder of what sort of things we are dealing with.......

Remember this golden oldie from 2008??

Or maybe this one, not at all disquieting....


Or how about these little darlings for Obama, with their "Barack Hussein Obama, mmm  mmm  mmm" immortalized forever by Rush Limbaugh.....

Well folks they are at it again in 2012.  Here's the latest from "The Future Children Project".  The real project is trying to get through this video without throwing up a little in your mouth.
