Sabotage!

Posted by bmac on March 31, 2008

“Democrats face long summer of bitter infighting”

Sure they do. Clearly, the Dems are pushing for Obama, in a bid to make sure they lose this election by a landslide. A gargantuan, crushing defeat at the hands of a more electable Democrat, John McCain.

Hey, either way, they win.

Three words: One Party System.

It’s happening my friends. Both parties have sabotaged their bases in a masterful “bait and switch” that leaves us fighting with each other while they merge parties, headed up by the political equivalent of a hot tranny, (and by that I mean someone who could fool you, but only if you’re very, very, very drunk. Like Danny Bonaduce) John McCain.

Sure, they’ll continue to have names like “Democrat” and “Republican” but the basic platforms will be almost indistinguishable. We all know McCain is gonna shove immigration right up our asses, and with a Dem house, our asses are gonna look like the Holland Tunnel. So there’ll be plenty of room for all the rest of McCain’s liberal agenda to fit, and if you think Republicans are gonna stop him, you can go try to find some, because I haven’t seen or heard from one in four years.

McCain and his BFF Teddy Kennedy, will be drunkenly driving over bridges with impunity, while actual Republicans become harder to find than a Yangtzee River Dolphin.

This clusterfuck of an election cycle is so clearly (at least to me, now that things have shaken out) set up to get McCain in the White House, that it’s almost laughable. Pit a Mormon against a kooky evangelical. A woman against a black guy. Mis-direction Houdini would be proud of. Divide and conquer.

Government is big business, and like any good corporation, their common interest is power. What better way to lube us up than to get McCain, a guy that Republicans will be forced to vote for, in office, so we can take that first real step into an undefined, meaningless Republican party, that will flow smoothly into what ultimately will become socialism.

Think I’m a conspiracy nut? Well, I don’t believe in any other conspiracy theory if that matters. Just tell me one, one single prominent Republican politician that has uttered a peep about much of anything of substance in the last four years, that hasn’t been all but shut down, or ignored….by the Republican party.

Cussing count: 2. clusterfuck, and ass.

Make that 4.

Condoleeza X?

Posted by bmac on March 29, 2008

Condi had an interesting take on the whole race issue that is all the rage now.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said yesterday that the United States still has trouble dealing with race because of a national “birth defect” that denied black Americans the opportunities given to whites at the country’s very founding.

Argghhh. “Birth Defect.” Hey America, you were born with a birth defect! Every 4th of July, we’re celebrating the defective birth of our country! Yay! Oh please Condi, tell us more about how badly this country started!

“Black Americans were a founding population,” she said. “Africans and Europeans came here and founded this country together — Europeans by choice and Africans in chains. That’s not a very pretty reality of our founding.”

And don’t you ever forget it!

As a result, Miss Rice told editors and reporters at The Washington Times, “descendants of slaves did not get much of a head start, and I think you continue to see some of the effects of that.”

Hey, you know who else didn’t get much of a head start? Lot’s and lot’s of poor white people, like say, oh, I don’t know, ummm……the Irish? How about Asians? Things weren’t exactly rosy for them either. Maybe a whole lot of English folks who came here with nothing? Uhhh…..some Polish perhaps? French, Danish, Germans, Italians, many of whom did not even speak English when they got here? Jews seem to get a pretty raw deal too, in case you haven’t heard.

Racism has never been the sole property of blacks, it has belonged to everyone at one time or another.

This “defective birth” of a country has been a bastion of tolerance and acceptance for every single race and creed that ever showed up here, and granted, it doesn’t happen overnight, but it does happen. More-so than any other “non-defective” country on Earth.

You know what needs to stop? This constant re-hashing of something none of us can do a damn thing about, or had anything to do with. You want us to feel guilty? We do. Trust me, we do. How much guilt is enough? Is there a cutoff? Because I’d like to know. Talking about the founding of our country as if it were an aberration doesn’t help anything. It can only hurt.

Once again, someone in the Bush administration let’s me down. I guess I had the vague notion Condi would be above this kind of petty dialogue, but I guess I was wrong.

I’m especially surprised to hear this from her, considering how much crap she’s taken from the left for being an “Aunt Tom.”

Bonus! Not one cuss word in this whole post!

I know I cuss a lot here, but damn! Worse than The Hostages? (24.5%)

I blame Bush.

And the fact that this country was born with a “birth defect.”

Hard To Find Good Help These Days

Posted by bmac on March 27, 2008

I totally understand how this could happen:

The head of the top U.S. phone company AT&T Inc (T.N) said on Wednesday it was having trouble finding enough skilled workers to fill all the 5,000 customer service jobs it promised to return to the United States from India.

“We’re having trouble finding the numbers that we need with the skills that are required to do these jobs,” AT&T Chief Executive Randall Stephenson told a business group in San Antonio, where the company’s headquarters is located.

These are customer service jobs, so I’m guessing a college degree is not one of the “skills” AT&T is requiring. I’m thinking that by “skills” what they really mean, is people that can actually show up to work, dress themselves, and not speak like a member of K-Feds posse.

Good luck. I ran a business for the last three years, a retail business, and I must have had at least a hundred people come in and ask for a job. Guess how many I would have even considered hiring? Maybe three. Maybe. Granted, it wasn’t a high paying job, but the lack of even the most basic form of self-respect, or even a hint of giving the slightest fuck about their appearance while asking for a job, was appalling.

Almost all of the “applicants” came in with a baseball hat cocked to one side, or giant pants dragging on the floor, or totally sleeved with tattoos, or just generally thuggish, or dirty, and the usual banter was “Ya’ll hirin?”

I wish I were exaggerating.

Another example of our declining level of basic “giving a crap” skills.

The other day, I was at the DMV. Everybody has to go to the DMV, so I figure it’s a pretty good cross-section, or micro-cosm of America, and I was struck by what a slovenly bunch we seem to have become. Most everybody there looked as if they’d just rolled out of bed, and just threw on whatever would save them the most number of steps to get to. I’m not the snappiest dresser in the world, but I do make a little effort when I leave the house, to not look like I’m gonna shank you, or cough up a nice case of hepatitis C. The place was crawling with messy hair, tattoos, (mostly on women!) thugs, (white and black, no racism here) and even a couple Gothy/Punk disasters. Trust me, no one is being held back by “the man” on expressing themselves aesthetically.

Just outside the DMV, they were registering voters, and there was a dude sitting there, “working” and, well, I took a picture:

21.jpg

It’s kinda hard to tell from a cell phone pic, (click it) but this dude was dressed in giant shorts and t-shirt, shaved head with a tattoo on his neck, sitting there with his feet up on the registration desk, smoking a cigarette. I don’t really know the deal on the people that put him there, or if he gets paid or what, but FUCK DUDE, can you EVEN TRY to not look like a lazy piece of shit while you’re registering voters?

Maybe I’m a judgemental asshole, but as I was sitting there looking at this messy horde of sloppy-ass, not giving a shit, hot mess of humanity, I seriously thought to myself “If we ever get into a real war again, or have any kind of an actual crises in this country, we’re fucked.”

I hope I’m wrong.

Divorce: Hip Hop Edition

Posted by bmac on March 27, 2008

Kind of a slow news day, so I was checking out Breitbart’s entertainment news, and I ran across a few interesting things, one of which was “rap mogul” Russell Simmons is getting divorced, after a seven year marriage. I hate to feel happy about someone else’s pain, but in this case, I think I’ll make an exception. From what I understand, Russells’s wife, a former model, is a raving bitch, who spends his money with reckless abandon, while pretending to be a mogul herself because he gave her the baby clothes division of his clothing line.

I happened to catch Russell and his wife’s episode of “Cribs” a while back, and for starters, I had no clue Russell Simmons made the kind of money he does, but he’s doing really well. They had probably the most ostentatious, pretentious, over-the-top, ridiculous “Crib” I have ever seen. Plus, it was 49,000 square ft. For two people, and a couple kids. Have you ever been in a 49,000 square ft house? Ten families of four could live in a 49,000 square ft house, and never see each other. Here, see for yourself.

Here’s Mrs. Simmons, looking fabulous (with a maid in the background)

How he thought this bitch wasn’t gonna clean his clock is beyond me. Not very-mogul like, Russell. She also tried to run from the police, and got arrested for possession of marijuana.

I half expect Tyra Banks and Miss J. to critique this mugshot, it’s so fucking fabulous.

How Russell ever made any money in the first place is a mystery to me, judging by his decision making skills displayed in his choice of wife.

BTW, you’ve probably seen Russell on the O’Rielly Factor, he’s a frequent guest, always brought in to defend Hip Hop Culture, and he’s really active in the Rock the Vote campaign.

The New Pups

Posted by bmac on March 26, 2008

We have two new members of the bmac family, Mikey and Gunner.

mikey2.jpg gunner-1.jpg

Clicky for bigger pic. Mikeys the mean lookin’ one. ( He’s not mean at all)
Ain’t they cute? Both rescues. Both German Shorthair Pointers, a breed we’ve fallen in love with. In case you haven’t noticed, in my left sidebar is a link to the California GSP Rescue, a group we belong to, and got both of these beautiful doggies through. They also helped us immensely (as well as a bunch of very generous and kind morons) when our last GSP, Kramer, had cancer, which he beat twice, before falling to an unexpected heart failure February 8th, just after going into remission for the second time.

These people do great work with these dogs, and if your inclined to such things, you can donate a few bucks, they do what they do for free, out of love for this wonderful breed. Just click the sidebar link, and even if you don’t contribute, take a look at what they do.

We had already planned to get Gunner, when the rescue called us about picking up Mikey from a family in a small town about 50 miles north of Vegas, and bringing him to the rescue when we came to pick up Gunner. The family had taken him in after they noticed him wandering around their property for about three weeks, but they already had 4 dogs, 4 cats, a pig, and four horses, and just couldn’t handle another dog. We were just going to foster him for two weeks, but he imprinted on me like a newborn duck, and in doing so, secured himself a home.

Mikeys history is a total mystery to us, he had a collar, but no name tag, and he was chipped (in Vegas), but the chip had invalid info on it. We figure he’s between 3 and 5. He’s housebroken, and great with people and other dogs, as well as neutered. We have no idea how he wound up so far out of town.

Gunner was taken to the rescue from a shelter, where a family had given him up because he was too “high energy.” They’re both incredibly sweet, loving, smart dogs, and we’re glad to have them.

Welcome to a lifetime of being spoiled rotten, you lucky dogs!

Jericho Cancelled Again, Good Riddence

Posted by bmac on March 26, 2008

I really liked the first season of Jericho. With a small town in Kansas trying to survive after a mysterious nuclear attack against the United States, it had a conservative bent to it that was a breath of fresh air. It of course got cancelled, and when fans of the show sent thousands of bags of peanuts to CBS in protest, they resurrected it for a second season.

jericho.jpg

Unfortunately, the second season did a 180, and became a moonbatty, very thinly veiled, paranoid liberal indictment of Haliburton, in which the fictional company “Jennings and Rall” turn out to be the conspirators in the nuclear attack on America in order to seize power.

Gee thanks CBS, for turning what could have been a great show into a Kos-worthy liberal wank-fest. I have no doubt the people who saved it in the first place were overwhelmingly Republican, but CBS is apparently not aware Republicans actually exist, and responded to their core fans by turning the show into a steaming pile of liberal shit.

Nuts.

Your Tax Dollars At Work

Posted by bmac on March 25, 2008

Obama’s taking a little vacation this week, in the Virgin Islands. That’s nice, he’s probably tired from campaigning 7 days a week for the last year and a half, and the gargantuan work load that goes along with being a U.S. Senator.

I wonder if anything could be going on in Illinois that might possibly require his attention, since you know, he’s been kissing babies and defending racists for a year and a half now, and the good people of Illinois pay him $165,200 a year to……..ummm…….uhhhh….I don’t know, what the fuck do we pay our Senators for anyway?

ov.jpg

What has Hillary been doing for New York lately? How about McCain? How’s Arizona doin’ Senator? Am I naive? How is it that these U.S. Senators can be persona non grata for two years at a clip with no measurable effect? Do they phone it in between church services? They always seem to find time for church.

Tell you what, let’s all run for President, and tell our bosses we’re gonna be…..busy for the next two years and give them an address to mail our checks to, and we may or may not be back, depending of course, on how the election turns out.

I wonder how that would go over.

It’s Official, MSM Called Out On SNL For Bias

Posted by bmac on March 23, 2008

I gotta say, SNL has risen from the dead yet again, the last couple years have been pretty good. The quality improved almost from the very moment the ridiculously over-rated, unfunny, Tina Fey left the show. Ditto for the slightly funnier, but still not as funny as he thinks he is, Jimmy Fallon, who seems to have dropped off the face of the Earth. That’s what you get for doing an “action” movie with Queen Latifah, dumbass. Who’s your agent, Tina Fey?

Speaking of Tina Fey, she hosted last night, and while the majority of last nights show sucked, (no doubt due to the Fey factor) the opening was hilarious, a parody of a Clinton/Obama debate on CNN, where they openly admitted their bias, and swooned over Obama. Questions to Obama were things like “Can I get you anything?” They even threw in a “picked at random” question from the audience, asked by the “Obama Girl” from YouTube. Totally nailed it.

I tried to find last nights opening on YouTube, but I couldn’t, maybe I just don’t know how to search it, but if you can find it, let me know.

So there you go leftards, can we just stop pretending the MSM is not an arm of the Democratic Party now? Once it’s been skewered on the left-leaning SNL, you can’t pretend it doesn’t exist any more.

Oh, and HAPPY EASTER!
