Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Well, from the overwhelming amount of mail in the Command Center’s mail bag it would seem that really no one noticed my absence.  It was just a few days and all.  Even celebrated something of a milestone for the General.  An anniversary even!

Yup, back on July 25th the Generalette and I were sweating (and you thought it was hot in the shade up there Venomous???) our way around EPCOT.  We tried to keep to the shade and indoors as much as possible, even went so far as to catch the early magic hours in the park and come back to the hotel for a few hours of rest then return to World Showcase.  We made a stopover in Morocco at the Restaurant Marrakesh for the anniversary dinner.  Afterwords,  we finished the day off with the Illuminations: Reflections of Earth fireworks and lasers extravaganza that Disney does so well.

But alas, the vacation ended and the real world beckoned.  So here we are, your General is back in the command chair (aka Lazyboy recliner) and the Generalette is preparing to return to filling the young skulls full of mush with new mush.  She’ll be returning not to fill Third Grade skulls, but rather Fifth Grade skulls this year.  She’s not really pleased, so the command staff has been on pins and needles since our return from Florida.  Hopefully I can keep enough chocolate in the house and I’ve put strict orders in at the commissary that they are not to allow the stock levels to drop AT ALL.

Other than a triple digit temps weekend here at the Southern Command, all is well.

ThatIsAll™

Ahhhhh, finally.  That time of year again, Denizens.

With the C’boys already in camp and the Texass stRangerS already in the midst of their annual post-All Star break swoon…

KORRIOTH:  Uh, m’liege?

VENOMOUS:  Yes, Kor?

KORRIOTH:  Have you checked the standings lately?

VENOMOUS:  !!!!! 

KORRIOTH (to McManx):  Have Pepper on standby with a crash cart.

VENOMOUS (getting his wits back about him):  Not necessary, Captain.  Just something I’m not accustomed to seeing, is all.

KORRIOTH:  Well, you did  have us concerned for a moment there, Admiral.

VENOMOUS:  Never mind.  Let’s get on with it.

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

_____________________________________________________




So Mrs. Venomous calls me on the phone tonight from work.

Says a co-worker/friend has helped her dye her hair.

Now, I’m not in the best of moods anyway – it was a hard day at work, it’s 100 degrees in the fucking shade here, I’m tired, and the LA Pansy-ass Angels, which I hate almost  as much as I hate the San Transexual Fairy-Whiners, are handing the Texass stRangerS their asses on a platter.  So I’m not too terribly overjoyed as it is.

Then  she tells me what color she had it dyed.

Auburn.

Yes.  Auburn.

(A shade of red, for those of you in the Church of the SubTarded™.)

MERLIN:  Okay.  So?

[Venomous fixes Merlin with probably the most vicious glare Merlin's ever seen.  Merlin visibly blanches.]

VENOMOUS:  All-fucking-right, can anyone here tell our doddering old fuckhead  of a wizard…

MERLINHEY!!!

VENOMOUS:  …just what the ever-lovin’ fuck  it is that I have against red-headed spouses?!?!?!

MERLIN:  ?????

KORRIOTH (very quietly, to Merlin):  Wizard, does the phrase “Doublewide Bitch Supreme” ring any bells in that belfry of yours?

[Merlin's eyes grow into saucers as the horrible realization hits.]

MERLIN:  …uh…m’liege?…(ulp)

VENOMOUS (in a very low, very  dangerous voice):  Wizard?  Get.  Out.  Of.  My.  Face.

MERLIN (scurrying away rapidly):  Yes sir, aye aye, sir!

Denizens, I’m going to be in a very  bad mood for the next few days weeks.  Don yer asbestos undies.

UPDATE:  Uh, oh…

MRS. VENOMOUSWHAT DID YOU JUST SAY ABOUT ME?!?!?!?!

SKILLET (on top of His Rudeness’ head):  CLANK!!!!!

Ow…

Denizens, I’m still working on the PFW overview, so look for it this weekend.

When is it time for a state to tell the Feds to go fly a kite?

I am a long time advocate of obeying the Law, even when I think it wrong, but the Idiot Judge’s ruling today yesterday [Sorry, Dave :-) -DV] in Arizona has come close to causing me to advise the State of Arizona to ignore the ruling, and to enforce the new Law as written. If the Feds won’t take custody of any illegals caught, set up another tent city, and house all illegals there until a resolution is made.

We are in the middle of our Summer Vacation Bible School right now. Due to the fact that many parents work, we are holding our VBS in the evening, and have been having a great time!

One wonders though, what would happen if His nastiness were to try and teach about 16 young people ranging in age from 2 to 11! :) In any case, here are some links to pictures, if anyone is interested.

In this thread over at Pajamas Media, where they’re talking about Arizona’s inherent right to enforce federal immigration law, a commenter named Sharpshooter brings up a magnificent point – one that could qualify for Comment Of The Year™.

Why do the states and their agencies have to enforce Federal drugs laws, etc?

That, in a nutshell, could be considered People’s Exhibit Number One™ as to why Arizona’s law must be allowed to stand.

If 1070 is overturned, it sets a catastrophically dangerous precedent for any state ignoring federal drug laws, laws against murder, robbery, etc.  Calfornication, for example, could easily decide that it no longer has to enforce federal drug laws – not that they do now, anyway, but you get the point.

Bambi and Eric Holder would do very well to drop this POS lawsuit, and avoid the potential unintended consequence.

They won’t, of course – you could put their combined brains in a thimble and still have room left over for my thumb – but they should.

As training camp has started a bit early for the Dallas C’boys (what with them being in the Hall of Fame Game this year ‘n all), the Perfect Football Weekend will also restart its warp engines slightly ahead of schedule, as well.

Look for the overview within a couple days or so.

ThatIsAll™.

More later when I have time, but for the moment, please read this.

After giving more thought to the Shirley Sherrod episode, and also considering other actions of our current elected leadership, I have concluded that the Obama administration best resembles a community of simians performing unnatural procreational activities upon an ellipsoid pigskin bladder.

It now appears that the Obama administration wants Ms Sherrod back so badly that they have created a job especially for her. That they are willing to go to such lengths is an indication of just how much egg the Obama clowns have on their faces.

It is to laugh!

Everyone seems to be oh-so-fucking-eager to trip over themselves offering Shirley Sherrod compete & total absolution for being a racist sixteen years ago.  Even my own Vicar™ has counseled me against jumping to conclusions.  (Perhaps, but it’s the only exercise I get anymore, so…)

Well, before everyone goes & canonizes her and starts calling her St. Shirley, I have an observation or two I’d like to make.  And I’ll make them later on today.

Watch this space.

UPDATE:  Okay, my treatise on Shirley Sherrod is below the fold.

You will note that, while Andrew Breitbart and selected others focus a great deal on the reactions of the NAACP group to whom she was speaking, I focus solely on Sherrod.

There’s a reason for that:  This damn thing is long enough as it is.

Okay, here we go…

Aw, come on! Is that all you got?! >

Memo to the National Association for the Ass-Kissing of (Liberal) Coddled People:

I do not ever – and I fucking mean EVER!!!! – want to hear your crybaby asses whining & sniveling about RAAAAACISM ever again, do you hear me?

This means you, the-uh Rrrrrrrrev’rn’d uh-Jack’s'nnnnnnnnnnn, Al “Tawana Brawley” Sharpton, John Whiney Price, Al Lipscomb, Diane Ragsdale, Maxine “Vote For The Candidate Who Looks Like You” Thornton-Reese, Maxi-Pad Waters, the Head-up-his-Ass Rev. Jack-ass-i-miah Wrong, and especially those two pussies Malik Shabazz & King Samir Shabazz from the Phucka-delphia New Black Pansy-asses Panthers.

You can take your accusations of RAAAAACISM – and shove it all up your pathetic, methane-overloaded, skanky asses.

We’ve always known you race pimps were full of shit.

Now we have proof.

Undeniable, incontrovertible, un-spinnable proof.

Sucks being you bastards, doesn’t it?

Denizens, Shit-cago pols usually can count on the dead vote to put them over the top.

Dingy Harry Reid, unfortunately (for him), won’t have that option.

Chances are good you never met Charlotte McCourt during her 84 years, but I’m willing to bet you’ll be hearing about her in the coming days now that her obituary has taken Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to task. It’s the kind of small story that has the potential to ricochet like a bullet through the campaign showdown between incumbent Reid and Republican challenger Sharron Angle.

Not because McCourt, who died July 8 after a long illness, was a political player or business powerbroker, but precisely because she was neither of those things. She was a homemaker, proud mother and grand mother and wife of 67 years to Patrick McCourt.

And she was at one time a loyal supporter of Harry Reid.

Her obituary, printed in Tuesday’s Review-Journal, reads in part, “We believe that Mom would say she was mortified to have taken a large role in the election of Harry Reid to U.S. Congress. Let the record show Charlotte was displeased with his work. Please, in lieu of flowers, vote for another more worthy candidate.”

Ouch.

“Ouch” is right.  Mheh.

(Hat tip RedState.)

This should surprise absolutely no one.

When Congress required most Americans to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty, Democrats denied that they were creating a new tax. But in court, the Obama administration and its allies now defend the requirement as an exercise of the government’s “power to lay and collect taxes.”

And that power, they say, is even more sweeping than the federal power to regulate interstate commerce.

Administration officials say the tax argument is a linchpin of their legal case in defense of the health care overhaul and its individual mandate, now being challenged in court by more than 20 states and several private organizations.

Under the legislation signed by President Obama in March, most Americans will have to maintain “minimum essential coverage” starting in 2014. Many people will be eligible for federal subsidies to help them pay premiums.

And I will still refuse to pay it.
