The Vicar requests that all who visit here this weekend keep the people of Japan in their prayers. They have had a real blow, and recovery will be neither quick nor easy.

The Department of “Would You Like Some Brie With That Whine, Sir?” notes that the Ayatollah B. HUSSEIN!!!!! Obambi is once again whining about how oh-so-haaaaaarrrrrrrrrdddddd the job of being President is.
How Mr. Obama manages to do that while also balancing American interests is a question that officials acknowledge will plague this historic president for months to come. Mr. Obama has told people that it would be so much easier to be the president of China. As one official put it, “No one is scrutinizing Hu Jintao’s words in Tahrir Square.”
Bill Kristol nails it in one.
Mr. Obama is right.
If you’re president of China, people around the world who are fighting for freedom don’t really expect you to help. If you’re president of China, you don’t have to put up with annoying off-year congressional elections, and then negotiate your budget with a bunch of gun-and-religion-clinging congressmen and senators. If you’re president of China, you can fund your national public radio to your heart’s content. And if you’re president of China, when you host a conference on bullying in schools, people take you seriously.
Unfortunately for him and us, Barack Obama is president of the United States. That job brings with it certain special responsibilities. It’s a tough job—maybe tougher than being president of China. But Barack Obama ran for president of the United States. Maybe he should start behaving as one.
And commenter “hboulware” puts the cherry on top.
Well Obama should have thought of that. I’m not to keen on sympathy for poor,overworked, unappreciated President Present. My job is hard too you freaking whiner. You ran for this job and you got it. Quit the constant moaning and DO YOUR JOB!!
I love it when my posts get written for me.
RAYEGUN: Oh, so that’s why you hired us.
VENOMOUS: Hush, you.

Having had enough of the 14 Wisconsin cowardcrats who took their marbles and ran away to Ill-noise, the Wisconsin Senate did what they should’ve done nearly three weeks ago and passed the non-budgetary part of their budget bill.
About damned time.
Moe Lane had the line of the night regarding this:
[UPDATE 7:30 PM] …Well, that was a waste of my valuable time for something that was pretty much inevitable from the start. The next time, can the Democrats simply accept the concept of elections having consequences and act like adults? …Well, they can: but they won’t. Oh, well, I always did prefer incompetent opponents. Fair fights are for suckers.
Mheh. You go, Moe.

TEN COMMANDMENTS: The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post “Thou Shalt Not Steal, Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery, and Thou shall not lie” in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.
The Vicar thinks there is much truth to this!

And a warm Spatula City BBS! greeting to you guys coming over from the lovely & gracious Michelle’s site on the basis of this comment to read Death of the Pegasus, then came back to the main page here.
Let me encourage you to stick around. This is a Rant Blog that tries (occasionally) to have a little fun, and doesn’t always do “all politics, all the time”.
For example…those of you who are of the football persuasion, make sure you’re back here in August, when we’ll mix in a strong dose of “Football, You Bet” with our regular offerings.
Above all, I’d encourage you to make this a daily read…if you dare.
UPDATE: If you’ve tried to register and found that I tend to emulate MM in that regard, it’s because the only registrations I’ve received lately are of the spambot variety. Hence, I’ve had to close registration, ’cause I don’t have time to go through my user rolls every day.
Leave me an email (the link’s down a bit, on the right) and let me know you’re here. I’ll get you set up soon as I get home.

Tech Support Log
Subject: Tech Support
Last year I upgraded from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 and noticed that the new program began unexpected child processing that took up a lot of space and valuable resources. No mention of this phenomenon was included in the product brochure.
In addition, Wife 1.0 installs itself into all other programs and launches during system initialization, where it monitors all other system activity. Applications such as Pokernight 10.3 Drunken Boys Night 2.5 and Sunday Football 5.0 no longer run, crashing the system whenever selected. I cannot seem to keep Wife 1.0 in the background while attempting to run some of my other favorite applications.
I am thinking about going back to Girlfriend 7.0, but the un-install does not work on this program. Can you help me, please???
This is a very common problem men complain about but is mostly due to a primary misconception. Many people upgrade from Girlfriend 7.0 to Wife 1.0 with the idea that Wife 1.0 is merely a UTILITIES & ENTERTAINMENT program.Wife 1.0 is an OPERATING SYSTEM and designed by its creator to run everything.
It is unlikely that you would be able to purge Wife 1.0 and still convert back to Girlfriend 7.0. Hidden operating files within your system would cause Girlfriend 7.0 to emulate Wife 1.0 so that, in the end, nothing would be gained. It is impossible to un-install, delete, or purge the program files from the system once installed. You cannot go back to Girlfriend 7.0 because Wife 1.0 is not designed to do this.
Some have tried to install Girlfriend 8.0 or Wife 2.0 but end up with more problems than with the original system. Look in your manual under “Warnings-Alimony/Child Support”. I recommend that you keep Wife 1.0 and just deal with the situation.
Having Wife 1.0 installed myself, I might also suggest you read the entire section regarding General Partnership Faults (GPFs). You must assume all responsibility for faults and problems that might occur,regardless of their actual cause. The best course of action will be to enter the command C:\APOLOGIZE. In any case, avoid excessive use of the Esc key because — ultimately-you will have to give the APOLOGIZE command before the operating system will return to normal. The system will run smoothly as long as you take the blame for all the GPFs.
Wife 1.0 is a great program, but very high maintenance. Consider buying additional software to improve the performance of Wife 1.0. I recommend Flowers 2.1 and Chocolates 5.0. Do not, under any circumstances, install Secretary With Short Skirt 3.3. This is not a supported application for Wife 1.0 and is likely to cause irreversible damage to the operating system.
Best of luck,
Although, if you ask me, I’m going for Secretary 38.22.35 myself…

The Wisconsin governor should sent this bill to the teacher’s union.

A little weekend frivolity for you, Denizens.
Got this from a co-worker yesterday:

(Hat tip: Professor Jacobson.)
Concerning end-times prophecies, Denizens, I must admit I’ve never really been all that clear whether Russia was Gog or Magog (though I suspect the Vicar could enlighten me).
That said, it seems pretty clear that either Gog or Magog just went to the dentist to have its dentures installed.
The graying bear is getting a make-over. Russia’s military is launching its biggest rearmament effort since Soviet times, including a $650 billion program to procure 1,000 new helicopters, 600 combat planes, 100 warships, and 8 nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines.
Analysts say Russia, while already the world’s fifth-largest military spender, needs strong conventional forces to reduce its overreliance on its aging Soviet-era nuclear missile deterrent. Valentin Rudenko, director of the independent Interfax-Military News Agency, says it could create “a whole new ballgame.”
“For about two decades we’ve had no real modernization, at least not like what’s being proposed now,” he says. “Russia will finally have a modern, top-level armed forces that are capable of protecting the country.”
Add that to all the turmoil in the Middle East, and it’s “look out, Israel”.
Watch & pray, Denizens. Watch & pray.

Especially if the “you” happens to be an AWOL Wisconsin senator with a “D” after your name. Somebody stood up and said enough is enough, and now the state police will be getting involved. The somebody was the Republican senators as we see here.
Republicans in the Wisconsin Senate passed a resolution Thursday calling for police to take 14 Democrats into custody for contempt after they fled to Illinois to avoid voting on a bill that would strip public-sector unions of nearly all their collective bargaining rights.
Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald signed the orders after Republicans voted 19-0 calling for the action unless Democrats returned to the chamber by 4 p.m. Thursday.
Drum roll please…..
None of the Democrats did, prompting Fitzgerald to sign 14 orders of detainment in dramatic fashion in the center of the Senate chamber. State patrol officers watched silently from the gallery.
No surprises here. As I’ve been saying all week here at the Command Center, stop wasting tax payer dollars Gov. Walker, fire their AWOL arses and appoint replacements!!!
Republicans calculate that the absence of the Democrats has cost more than $250,000 in taxpayer money for the salaries and expenses of running the House during the walkout, which Bosma called “a very expensive temper tantrum.”
And there’s EXACTLY what I’m talking about. That’s just $250k, take a look at THIS!!!
Wisconsin Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch told the court that it would take $500,000 to supervise the removal of the tape, $6 milion to restore the damage to the interior of the building and an additional $1 million to restore damage done from items taped to the exterior.
Gov. Walker, do the right thing….bill each and every friggin union that sent their thugs to cop a squat on the Capitol building. DO NOT make the law-abiding tax payers of your state foot this bill. Obviously if they sent their people there and not to work, then the union coffers CLEARLY can foot this bill.

Robert Reichhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-uh! thinks he’s a pretty tough little shit doesn’t he? Seeing as how he thinks he speaks for the anarchists ‘n all…
CENK UYGUR: Secretary Reich, this isn’t just about let’s get the money from the rich because that’s where it is and they’ve accumulated all the wealth up at the top. It also makes sense for the rich if we had more equal distribution of income because of the effect it would have on the middle class. Tell us about that, why do you think that’s the case? . . . Now if you go buying less cars, less homes, less everything, how are corporations and rich people supposed to make money? I mean, it hurts everybody, doesn’t it?
ROBERT REICH: Not only does it hurt everybody, but it also breeds a kind of anger.
Oh, wook – widdle Bobbi’s stamping his feet and banging his widdle sippy-cup. Inn’t he just so cuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuute?
I mean, so many middle-class people, lower middle-class people, working-class people, are frustrated. They are anxious, they worry about paying their bills.
Actually, we worry about all that while at the same time worrying about Demoscum imposing their Draconian, confiscatory tax schemes on us.
They see people at the very top getting away with, well, the equivalent of murder:
No, what we see are people getting compensated according to agreed-upon contract, and while we wish we could be that successful, those of us who think with our heads rather than our dicks understand that being successful isn’t a crime.
Or at least, it wasn’t, until…
look at what happened on Wall Street. There’s not a single Wall Streeter that’s actually been indicted or brought to justice after that huge implosion on Wall Street. And people get cynical and they get angry.
No, they just had your homie the Ayatollah and his fellow Demoscum in the then-Imperial Socialist Congress decide that they were going to try and tzx their earnings at something like 90%. That’s why we got “cynical & angry”.
And then they see, uh, Republicans are very good at channeling that anger toward what? Government, immigrants, public employees. Well, an angry population and an angry populace could just as easily turn their anger toward the very rich.
No, actually, this time we’ll be turning our anger towards you and your fellow Demoscummic statists & anarchists.
And, given that it’d be your sticks & rocks vs. our .45s, .357 Magnums, .380s, 12-gauges and 30-aught-06s…you might wanna rethink that one.
Again, it is in the interest of the people at the top to actually call for a more equitable distribution of the gains of economic growth and a better tax system: a tax system that is fair.
Bring it, Reichhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh-uh!, you pussy. I fucking dare you.

Fox News is reporting that Phaggoty Phred Phelps and his horde of syphilitic inbreds can, indeed, picket soldiers’ funerals.
Like the Travis Tritt (Travis Tritt?) song said, Phaggot Phreddy…the First Amendment can protect you from the government – but it can’t protect you from us.
Ropes, trees, Westboro pussies…y’all know the drill.
