New Year's Words of Reflection, Wisdom, and Resolution (stolen from a complete stranger)

*1. As I let go of my feelings of guilt, I am in touch with my inner sociopath. *

*2. I have the power to channel my imagination into ever-soaring levels of suspicion and paranoia. *

*3. I assume full responsibility for my actions, except the ones that are someone else's fault. *

*4. In some cultures what I do would be considered normal. *

*5. My intuition nearly makes up for my lack of wisdom and judgment. *

*6. I need not suffer in silence while I can still moan, whimper, and complain. *

*7. When someone hurts me, I know that forgiveness is cheaper than a lawsuit, but not nearly as rewarding. *

*8. I am at one with my duality. *

*9. Blessed are the flexible, for they can tie themselves in knots. *

*10. I will strive to live each day as if it were my 50th birthday. *

*11. I honor and express all facets of my being, regardless of state and local laws. *

*12. Today I will gladly share my experience and advice, for there are no sweeter words than "I told you so!" *

*13. A scapegoat is almost as good as a solution. *

*14. Just for today, I will not sit in my living room all day in my underwear. Instead, I will move my computer into the bedroom. *

*15. I will no longer waste my time reliving the past; I will spend it worrying about the future. *

*16. The complete lack of evidence is the surest proof that the conspiracy is working. *

*17. Before I criticize a man, I walk a mile in his shoes. That way, if he gets angry, he's a mile away and barefoot. *

Patricia Sweeney McEnroe passed away today peacefully  in her sleep, less than an hour after I posted the previous update.

Thank you again for all your prayers and kind wishes; I'm sure they lit her way home...

Pat McEnroe, a last photograph

LATEST UPDATE:  As I was leaving to fly back home, the doctors discovered that her trouble breathing came not from the COPD as previously assumed, but pneumonia, picked up I guess while she was lying on the bathroom floor before I found her.  They're treating that now, too.

UPDATE: Mom has stabilized.  Her blood pressure is back up, respiration and heartbeat are closer to normal, she's lucid and eating.  My sisters, both medical professionals, are optimistic.  Now it's watch the kidney function, and a long period of convalescence and physical therapy.

Thank you so much, everyone who answered my request for prayers.

Flew home to NY for Christmas with the family.
Woke up Saturday morning to find my mother on the floor.
She's in ICU now with sepsis and undetermined cardiac problems complicating pre-existing diabetic and COPD conditions.
All the prayers you can spare will be greatfully accepted.

Rule 5 -- Jennifer Jones (In Memoriam)

Huzzah! Obama's Economy Has Turned the Corner!

Got news for ya.  When the damn smut peddlers have to hold clearance sales, you are not looking at a vibrant and healthy economy... I mean let's face it, you are talking about the ultimate in discretionary income here.*

*Seriously.  Would you want to be seen spending it?  That's where the discretion comes in...


Right out in the open, where anyone can see it!  Even children!  What about the children?  Doesn't ANYBODY care about the children?!

Someone call Kevin Jennings!

Iron Man 2 Sneak Preview -- now updated with new trailer!


Marco Rubio ties Charley Crist in Rasmussen Poll.

And even more importantly, the Rasmussen poll highlights a fact the GOP must face: without the "tea party" independent conservatives, they lose.  EVERY time.  It's time for Michael Steele to admit this.  It's time for John Cornyn to admit this.  It's time for Pete Sessions to admit this.  And it's time for them to start steering the GOP that way...

ACLU loses major donor...

My Rod Serling Moment for the Day...

Walking to work.  Crossing the street.

Large truck waiting at the crosswalk.

As I walk in  front of the truck I suddenly stop dead and say to myself, "Some idiot is going to try to dart around this truck and take the corner."

THAT INSTANT, an old dude comes zooming around the blind side of the truck... in a white Dodge Dart.


How am I supposed to get a whole episode out of that...?

Is Snopes.com Astroturf?

An e-mail I received.  Worth checking out:

"For the past few years www.snopes.com has positioned itself, or others have labeled it, as the 'tell-all final word' on any comment, claim and email. But for several years people tried to find out who exactly was behind snopes.com ..

Only recently did Wikipedia get to the bottom of it - kinda makes you wonder what they were hiding. Well, finally we know. It is run by a husband and wife team - that's right, no big office of investigators and researchers, no team of lawyers. It's just a mom-and-pop operation that began as a hobby. David and Barbara Mikkelson in the San Fernando Valley of California started the website about 13 years ago, 20- and they have no formal background or experience in investigative research. After a few years it gained popularity with many believing it to be unbiased and neutral, but over the past couple of years people started asking questions who was behind it and did they have a selfish motivation?

The reason for the questions - or skepticism's - is a result of snopes.com claiming to have the bottom line facts to certain questions or issue when in fact they have been proven wrong. Also, there were criticisms the Mikkelsons were not reallyinvestigating and getting to the 'true' bottom of various issues. A few months ago, when my State Farm agent Bud Gregg in Mandeville hoisted a political sign referencing Barack Obama and made a big splash across the internet, 'supposedly' the Mikkelson's claim to have researched this issue before posting their findings on snopes.com. In their statement they claimed the corporate office of State Farm pressured Gregg into taking down the sign, when in fact nothing of the sort 'ever' took place. I personally contacted David Mikkelson (and he replied back to me) thinking he would want to get to the bottom of this and I gave him Bud Gregg's contact phone numbers – and Bud was going to give him phone numbers to the big exec's at State Farm in Illinois who would have been willing to speak with him about it. He never called Bud. In fact, I learned from Bud Gregg no one from snopes.com ever contacted anyone with State Farm. Yet, snopes..com issued a statement as the 'final factual word' onthe issue as if they did all their homework and got to the bottom of things - not!

Then it has been learned the Mikkelson's are very avid Democrats (party) and extremely liberal, as we all now know from this presidential election.

So, I say this now to everyone who goes to snopes.com to get what they think to be the bottom line facts ....'proceed with caution.' Take what it says at face value and nothing more. Use it only to lead you to their references where you can link to and read the sources for yourself. Remember, you can always Google a subject and do the research yourself. It now seems apparent that's all the Mikkelson's do. After all, I can personally vouch from my own experience for their 'not' fully looking into things.

I have found this to be true also! Many videos of Obama I tried to verify on Snopes and they said they were False.......Then they gave their Liberal slant....!!! I have suspected some problems with snopes for some time now, but I have only caught them in half-truths. If there is any subjectivity they do an immediate full left rudder.

www.truthorfiction.com is a far a better source for verification, in my opinion. The Mikkelsons are in the tank for Obama. There are many things they have listed on their site as a hoax and yet you can go to Youtube yourself and find on other videos of Obama actually saying these things. So you see, you cannot and should not... Trust Snopes.com ever for anything that is remotely political! I don't even trust them to tell me if email chains are hoaxes anymore. So goes modern journalism. There are cropping up numerous sites and blogs that openly challenging Snopes's findings, opinions, and outright claims.

A few conservative speakers on Myspace told me about Snopes a few months ago and I took it upon myself to do a little research to find out if it was true. Well, I found out for myself that it is true, so you might consider thinking twice before relying on Snopes.com for fact checking and do your friends the courtesy of tipping them off to Snopes political slant.
Many people still think Snopes.com is neutral and they can be trusted as factual.

We need to make sure everyone is aware that... that is a hoax in itself."

Christmas Coal for Congress!

Okay, it's time to send Congress -- ALL of Congress, the Pelosis, the Reids, the Franks, the Dodds, the Waxmen, the Boxers, the Feinsteins, the Lincolns, the Snowes, all the pink little progressives and all the shambling, nearsighted RINOs -- the Christmas greeting they deserve and we so ardently intend:


We need, each and every one of us, to send one piece of coal each to our Senators and individual Congressdrones.  Now there's no point in sending the coal straight to DC; it will only get sidetracked into the Homeland Security inspection and irradiation depot... but every one of these parasites has a local office or offices and that's where it should go.
You can get the home office puddles for these leeches through their respective websites via

www.senate.gov and www.house.gov
In the interests of economy, you can send a charcoal briquet instead if preferred.

Don't Delay!
Fill a Political Hack's Stocking Today!

UPDATE:  Deborah Leigh makes a great suggestion. FAXED coal could make an excellent stocking stuffer if you don't want to/can't go to the trouble of sending actual coal or charcoal...

Friday Night Protest Signs!

The lefties across the street from us thronged Studio City to protest Obie's half-assed, inept expansion of the Afghanistan campaign...

Thronged, I say, as evidenced through the technological sophistication supplied courtesy of the VRWC and a ninety-buck Aiptek pocket camcorder.  Fortunately, veteran protester Deborah Leigh and I were ready for them, seeing as how we keep two or three protests' worth of signage, flags and banners in the Rightmobile for use at a minute's notice...

Barack Obama Wants To Require Middle Schoolers To Read Gay Porn

"I'm your wicked Uncle Ernie, and I'm glad you won't see or hear me
As I fiddle about, fiddle about, fiddle about...!
Your parents left me here to mind you now I'm doing what I want to
As I fiddle about, fiddle about, fiddle about...!"

Obama's Safe School Czar Kevin Jennings recommends sexually explicit porn to middle schoolers

Gateway pundit has the story, and some incredibly explicit excerpts.  Be warned. NSFW, NSFSchools, and if you're a parent with middle-school-aged kids, probably NSFKevin Jennings.

Look, I play Rule 5 as happily as anyone here, and will go right on doing so.  I likes me a good dirty joke and will even allow that porn is not unknown to me (I've known a couple of porn stars and actually edited a porn movie once. Once was plenty.  Susan Sontag got one thing right).

BUT YOU DON'T SHOW THIS STUFF TO CHILDREN.  Seriously, is that such a difficult concept?

I can't reprint the excerpts here, for fear of triggering Blogger's adult content minefield, but I urge you to follow the link, read the material in question, then go light a fire under the White House, your Congressman, your Senator and your schoolboard.  Jennings has to go, and Obama has to do something to demonstrate he knows one person who isn't a lying, antisocial degenerate.

"Hey, kids!  You know who hangs out with pedophiles?  
That's right!  Other pedophiles!"
