I’m sure this is a metaphor for something, I’d go with, “Giving the reins of power to Democrats” personally.

It is darn funny. I like the way he lifts it over his head at the end,

And by “boned”, I mean fucked hard and put away sticky.

My contention on why I won’t vote for Romney is that he won’t undo what Obama is doing and a GOP Congress won’t want to fight a GOP president as hard as they’ll fight Obama.

From Ace’s post

And defending the mandate as “conservative,” every inch of the way, and actually showing uncharacteristic passion while doing so, is would-be Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

See? Romney is only going to want to “fix” what Obama’s done, not undo it. The GOP establishment likes over-arching gov’t control of everything just fine, they like the control too.

Once Congress is in the GOP hands, they can undo what Obama has done and will try to do, it’ll be easier to fight Mitch McConnell and John Boehner when we don’t have POTUS siding with them against us.

I really hope Perry makes a strong showing early because, and this kills me to write, he might be our only hope. I only see Gingrich, Perry and Romney as having a chance right now and that sucks. Gingrich has the will and the balls to undo what Obama’s done, I just don’t know if he has the desire. Perry is weak as hell on immigration but he understands what makes America work, and it’s not gov’t. Gov’t can only get out of the way to let America work.

We are so boned. Need some hotassery.

Sadly, Cheetah the Chimp has passed away.

Cheetah, the most famous of the sanctuary’s 15 chimpanzees, liked to see people laugh.

“He was very compassionate,” Cobb said. “He could tell if I was having a good day or a bad day. He was always trying to get me to laugh if he thought I was having a bad day. He was very in tune to human feelings.”

Ron Priest, a sanctuary volunteer for seven years, said Cheetah stood out because of his ability to stand up – shoulders tall, back straight – and walk like a person.

Cheetah also stood out for another reason, Priest said: “When he didn’t like somebody or something that was going on, he would pick up some poop and throw it at them. He could get you at 30 feet with bars in between.”

Add to those feats his ability to fight the Nazis, and we truly have lost a great one.

Where is the Baroness?

How the hell do you have a G.I. Joe Movie without the Baroness?

On the plus side it does have ninjas, which are much cooler than zombies any day of the week.

Interesting insider’s article, Eric at least used to comment at Hotair quite a bit, and always seemed decent enough.

LOL at the Paultards white knighting for America’s Greatest Patriot(TM) in RWNs comments.

Tactical fountain pen

Why have I not heard of such a creature’s existence?  Not that I’d buy one, I’m not big on the tacticool stuff, but I should have heard of this pen at least.  And yes, my Pelikan M1000 looks big enough to bludgeon someone to death, but I wouldn’t try it.  My SOG Twitch II will have to suffice for hand-to-hand.

I have read that there’s no cartridge converter, which is a big minus for me, as I like mah purty colors and bottles of ink.  Yes you can do a syringe fill on cartridges, but meh, meh I say!  I wonder if there’s a cartridge converter available for them.

 

There is a little truth in this

Peter Thiel, a founder of PayPal opines science fiction has collapsed:

One way you can describe the collapse of the idea of the future is the collapse of science fiction. Now it’s either about technology that doesn’t work or about technology that’s used in bad ways. The anthology of the top twenty-five sci-fi stories in 1970 was, like, ‘Me and my friend the robot went for a walk on the moon,’ and in 2008 it was, like, ‘The galaxy is run by a fundamentalist Islamic confederacy, and there are people who are hunting planets and killing them for fun.’

After thinking about it a bit I had to agree.  With very few exceptions (John Ringo for one) it seems that most science fiction has devolved into dystopian, anti-technological screeds.  No one holds out any hope for the future.  It’s one of the reasons that my reading of science fiction has decreased drastically over the past few years.  Well that and the fact that all anyone writes anymore is cheap vampire fiction that gets stuffed into the Sci-Fi section at the bookstore.  Bastards!!  Anne Rice, Charlene Harris, and Stephanie Meyers should all be drawn and quartered on the steps of the US Capitol to serve as a warning to others who would inflict this torture upon us, but I digress.  Anyway you get my point; hopefully some talented writer will come to the same conclusion and start churning out some pages.
