Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Our President would have us believe that unemployment has seen a dramatic improvement, and that his economic policies are actually helping the people. This article shows us why Obama is not to be believed.

I once stated that Romney is Obama lite, and that I would not vote should he become the nominee. I am revisiting that position. At this point, Romney has several things going for him that Obama does not, beginning with the fact that he appears to be an honest man.


Just got this from my sister-in-law.

It’s kinda long, so it’s below the fold, but you’ll like it, so read it.

That’s an order. 

COSTELLO: I want to talk about the unemployment rate in America .

ABBOTT: Good Subject. Terrible Times. It’s 9%.

COSTELLO: That many people are out of work?

ABBOTT: No, that’s 16%.

COSTELLO: You just said 9%.

ABBOTT: 9% Unemployed.

COSTELLO: Right 9% out of work.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 16%.

COSTELLO: Okay, so it’s 16% unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, that’s 9%…


Is it 9% or 16%?

ABBOTT: 9% are unemployed. 16% are out of work.

COSTELLO: IF you are out of work you are unemployed.

ABBOTT: No, Obama said you can’t count the “Out of Work” as the unemployed.

You have to look for work to be unemployed.


ABBOTT: No, you miss his point.

COSTELLO: What point?

ABBOTT: Someone who doesn’t look for work, can’t be counted with those who look for work. It wouldn’t be fair.

COSTELLO: To whom?

ABBOTT: The unemployed.

COSTELLO: But they are ALL out of work.

ABBOTT: No, the unemployed are actively looking for work. Those who are out of work gave up looking and if you give up, you are no longer in the ranks of the unemployed.

COSTELLO: So if you’re off the unemployment roles, that would count as less unemployment?

ABBOTT: Unemployment would go down. Absolutely!

COSTELLO: The unemployment just goes down because you don’t look for work?

ABBOTT: Absolutely it goes down. That’s how Obama gets it to 9%.

Otherwise it would be 16%. He doesn’t want you to read about 16% unemployment.

COSTELLO: That would be tough on his reelection.

ABBOTT: Absolutely.

COSTELLO: Wait, I got a question for you. That means there are two ways to bring down the unemployment number?

ABBOTT: Two ways is correct.

COSTELLO: Unemployment can go down if someone gets a job?

ABBOTT: Correct.

COSTELLO: And unemployment can also go down if you stop looking for a job?

ABBOTT: Bingo.

COSTELLO: So there are two ways to bring unemployment down, and the easier of the two is to have Obama’s supporters stop looking for work.

ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like the Obama Economy Czar.

COSTELLO: I don’t even know what the hell I just said!

ABBOTT: Now you’re thinking like Obama.


Not one of my better efforts, but none-the-less, here is yesterday’s sermon: More »


He’s cooking the fucking books.

Period, end, stop.

And anyone who believes this number should not only have their head examined…they should be prohibited from voting, they’re that stupid.


SAN DIEGO – My brother-in-law & his wife took Mrs. Venomous & me out for some dinner & sightseeing tonight, so I didn’t see but the last 10 minutes or so of the first debate.

But I’ll say this:  If the rest of the debate went like the last 10 minutes…Bambi got his ass handed to him on a platter.


SAN DIEGO – A little something I just wrote in response to a commenter named “CalMark” in this Legal Insurrection  thread:

Limbaugh just moans and groans.

All respect, Cal, but that seems to be what most (if not all) of us are doing – wringing our hands in (mock?) angst and sitting on our lead-laden butts. We’re either too busy with our day-to-day routines, too afraid of having cuffs slapped on us by pro-union-pro-Demoscum cops (and can we admit it to ourselves that a lot of them will not be on our side when the SHTF?)…

…or we’re all going ga-ga over Gaga (as in Lady), or, “Ooooooh, look at Kirstie Alley cut that rug on Dancing with the Stars!!!!”

This is our problem: We don’t fight back. We all want to be “better” than the Left, whatever that means. We want to be “above the fray”. We want to take the “moral high ground”.

Until we stop caring what Brian Williams, Katie Couric, Bob Schieffer and Georgie-Porgie Snuffleupagus think of us, we will always be subservient to them. Until we can tell RINO jackwagons like Bill O’Reilly, Chuckie Krauthammer and Widdle Joey Scarborough to go pound sand, we’ll be under their thumb, too.

What’s going to need to happen first is that some RINOs in key positions in the GOP – and that can either be at the upper levels or down in the precincts – need to be shoved up against a wall with a forearm to their throats (literally, if necessary), and told in no uncertain terms, “Get out of the way.” These are the imbeciles who tell us “oh, this country’s going off the cliff, but we’ll just do it more slowly” (I actually had a RINO tell me this once) – and they’re the ones we need to throw off the cliff.

Only then will we advance as a party. Only then do we have a chance to take our country back.

(Incidentally, I include myself in this – I’ve been far too timid for far too long when it comes to standing for what’s right and what needs to happen – so don’t think I’m throwing anyone under the bus without tossing myself there, as well. I’m as guilty as anyone on this, probably moreso.)

The Second Civil War is coming, Denizens.  Save that the Rapture intervenes, that won’t be stopped now, I don’t think.  Not the way things are going, anyway.

The only question now is…who’s going to fire the first salvo?
