Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...

Item:&#160 A Gallup poll taken the day after the Imperial Socialist Congress™ passed BambiCare seemed to suggest a majority was close to favoring it.

Nearly half of Americans give a thumbs-up to Congress’ passage of a healthcare reform bill last weekend, with 49% calling it “a good thing.” Republicans and Democrats have polar opposite reactions, with independents evenly split.

Item:&#160 Maybe it’s the way they phrased the original question – or perhaps it’s now starting to sink into the minds of the American people just what a PigInAPoke&#153 this is gonna turn out to be.&#160 But they don’t seem to be too enthusiastic about it today.

Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the health care overhaul signed into law last week costs too much and expands the government’s role in health care too far, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds, underscoring an uphill selling job ahead for President Obama and congressional Democrats.

Those surveyed are inclined to fear that the massive legislation will increase their costs and hurt the quality of health care their families receive, although they are more positive about its impact on the nation’s health care system overall.

The GOP still needs to play this right, but the Donks – assuming&#160 there will be elections in November (which is still a ginormous if), are beginning to realize they may have just signed their death warrant.

Schweet.&#160 Just.&#160 Effin’.&#160 Schweet.&#160


Nothing tonight, guys.&#160 Little under the weather – 10 days & counting, kinda hitting a wall here.

Maybe tomorrow.


A friend of mine from a previous job career counts as one of his family friends one Erykah Badu.&#160 (For the Uninitiated&#153 Erykah Badu is a semi-well-known rhythm-and-blues/soul/rap singer/crooner/hip-hop diva.

And she’s just shamed the hell outta my friend – not to mention her family – by doing this.

A City of Dallas spokesman said Erykah Badu broke the law by filming a music video in downtown Dallas in which she strips and feigns being shot in Dealey Plaza.

City officials had no immediate comment on the content of the video – either the nudity or the clear references to the 1963 assassination of John F. Kennedy.

But whatever she chose to put in her new video, Badu – a Dallas native and renowned graduate of the Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts – should have gotten a permit before filming it, said City of Dallas spokesman Frank Librio.

“All commercial film/video or photo shoot projects must be permitted through the City of Dallas Office of Special Events/Film Coordinators,” Librio said in a written statement. “The production company that produced this video never contacted the city to seek the proper permits. This is known as ‘guerrilla filming’ where production companies circumvent the proper permitting procedures and usually shoot these scenes in one take, knowing that if they are discovered they would face arrest and/or penalties.”

Now, should you have the stomach to go seek out the video and view it (I have – and quite honestly, it isn’t that good), you might notice that she did this in full view of regular Dallas citizens.&#160 Men, women…and children.

That’s right, sportz fanz.&#160 Erykah Badu did herself a little striptease for all the nice folks in downtown Dallas.&#160 Without so much as a cover charge, or even the strip club tax the Texas Supreme Court’s looking at right now.

Sad, huh?

And y’know…the really&#160 sad thing is that she’ll probably win some sort of award for the video.&#160 If nothing else, she’ll win one for sticking it to whitey, aka Dallas city government.&#160 Little black girls – and little white ones, and Asian ones, and Hispanic ones too – will, sadly, look up to her as some sort of role model, instead of the two-bit stripper she’s turned out to be.

It’s just another sign that our society and culture has been flushed down the shitter.&#160 And at some point, He who has not turned one blind eye to us, will have had enough, and we will reap the whirlwind.


(Hat tip to Michelle, of course.)

Item:&#160 A couple of weeks ago, the Mickey Mouse outfit known as ESPN was donning the kneepads for the Ayatollah as only they knew how – by having him participate in March Madness bracket-mania.&#160 (They even have a video of him doing it, if you have the stomach for it – I know I&#160 don’t.)

Perhaps they were swayed by the fact that he correctly guessed that North Carolina would win it all last year.&#160 (Really not much of a guess – if you&#160 were officiating games under the threat of The World’s Biggest College Hoops Pussy&#153, Tyler Hansbrough, pitching a fit everytime you called him for something, you’d give them a free pass, too.)

Item:&#160 Bambi’s proven to be just as inept at picking college hoops this year as he’s been recently at picking political candidates.&#160 Butler & W. Virginia made sure Saturday that his jugeared ass done got shut out.

President Barack Obama went 0 for 2 in the NCAA tournament Saturday when Kentucky and Kansas State lost in the regional finals, knocking out his two remaining picks for the Final Four.

In his ESPN.com bracket, Obama predicted that Kansas, Villanova, Kentucky and Kansas State would reach the Final Four. Kansas and Villanova were upset in the second round, then Kentucky and Kansas State went down Saturday.

All together now:&#160


Denizens, the following is being republished as a public service.&#160 Links, etc, have been updated to reflect the current year.

As y’all are probably aware, tonight at 2030 hours (a little military/police/fire lingo, there) we’re all supposed to turn all our lights off for one hour.&#160 Several cities (one of which will, in all probability, be Dallas), are planning to participate.

But not this King & Tyrant&#153.

MERLIN:&#160 You’re not a king & tyrant anymore.

KORRIOTH:&#160 You’re not even a King & Tyrant&#153, either.

MERLIN:&#160 That’s what I said!

OZY MCCOOL:&#160 No, you said “king & tyrant”

K’HADIBAK’H:&#160 As in, just an ordinary king and an ordinary tyrant.

VENOMOUS:&#160 Guys…

T-BONE MCMANX:&#160 And as we all know, His Snarkiness is neither an ordinary king, nor an ordinary tyrant.

VENOMOUS:&#160 Guys…

SUPREME GENERAL RAYEGUN:&#160 He may be a particularly piss-poor king and a tyrant with pathetic delusions of godhood…

KORRIOTH:&#160 …but he’s no ordinary king & tyrant.

VENOMOUS:&#160 HEY!!!!!


VENOMOUS:&#160 I haven’t written the script to the next installment of “One Of Our Klingons Is Missing” yet.&#160 Heads could&#160 roll, y’know.

ALL:&#160 Eeeeeeeep!

See what I gotta put up with around here?

Anyway, where were we?&#160 Ah, yes…

At 2030 hours tonight, every light in My Humble Abode™, every computer, every monitor, every kitchen appliance, every fan, the central heater (it is&#160 going to get down in the 30s 40s here tonight), every gadget I currently have plugged in – if it pulls wattage in my house, it’s on and running tonight at that time.

Y’see, I haven’t forgotten my life’s work – pissing off the Left as much as I possibly can.&#160 And if I can tell the Greentards, symbolically or otherwise, to take Mommy Gaia and go shove her up all their swishy asses, I’m absolutely going to take the opportunity to do so.

And I hope to Cthulu some fucking tree-hugging faggot just tries&#160 to get in my face about it tonight.

Please, chickenshit Greenies.&#160 I fucking dare&#160 you.


Denizens, some of you may recall where I – ah – took a black-robed star-chamber tyrantess (tyrantess?) to task for daring to tell the sovereign town of Farmers Branch, TX, that she&#160 ran the town, not them.

Well, the Stupid Cunt&#153 went and did it again on Wednesday.

For the second time, a federal judge has declared unconstitutional a Farmers Branch ordinance banning illegal immigrants from renting in the city.

U.S. District Judge Jane Boyle of Dallas ruled Wednesday that the ordinance was an attempt to enforce U.S. immigration laws – something the judge said only the federal government can do.

The judge also issued a permanent injunction to stop Farmers Branch from enforcing Ordinance 2952.

And it’s just as legitimate now as it was then.&#160 Which is to say, not very damned much.

Mayor Tim O’Hare, the driving force behind the ordinances, said he wants to appeal.

Mayor O’Hare, I wouldn’t bother.&#160 The tin-horned fucksticks aren’t going to rule in your favor, no matter how right you are.

Instead, I’d just ignore the ruling and enforce 2952 anyway.&#160 Make the apartment complexes abide by the will of the people.&#160 Those that cooperate get slightly more leeway on, say, city inspections.

Those that don’t?&#160 Throw the book at them.&#160 Right down to the tiniest little crack in a foundation – cite the hell outta them for it.

And recruit some volunteers, for when Cheetah Jane decides to throw some US Marshals at you.&#160 Defend yourselves & Farmers Branch.



Bricks have been going through windows in response to the Imperial Socialist Congress&#153 forcing BambiCare down our throats.

In what seems like a response, some cowardly little pussy put a bullet through Eric Cantor’s (R-VA) campaign office window.

(Small caliber, probably, to match the pussy’s dick size.)

Lock & load, Denizens.&#160 It’s beginning.


(Hat tip Susannah over at Redstate.)

Prior to the Demoscum ripping our rights to shreds Sunday night, Al-Obambi apologist pussy Widdle Davey “Poofter” Plouffe got his ass handed to him by Karl Rove.

We are talking Jim Ross-screamin’ “What an ass-whippin’!!!&#160 What a Texas-sized ass-whippin’!!!” proportions here.&#160 Rove the Magnificent Bastard&#153 was Stone Cold to Poofie’s Eric Bischoff at No Way Out&#160 2002 (for reference’s sake, if you want to see what a squash that was, go here.)

It was a thing of beauty to behold.&#160 So let’s look at it again.&#160


Denizens, I really don’t feel much like writing tonight, so the day’s Grab-Baggery&#153 comes from commenter Terry in Alaska off of this entry on Riehl’s site.

Dear President Obama,

My name is Harold Estes, approaching 95 on December 13 of this year. People meeting me for the first time don’t believe my age because I remain wrinkle free and pretty much mentally alert.

I enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1934 and served proudly before, during and after WW II retiring as a Master Chief Bos’n Mate. Now I live in a “rest home” located on the western end of Pearl Harbor , allowing me to keep alive the memories of 23 years of service to my country.

One of the benefits of my age, perhaps the only one, is to speak my mind, blunt anddirect even to the head man.

So here goes.

I am amazed, angry and determined not to see my country die before I do, but you seem hell bent not to grant me that wish.

I can’t figure out what country you are the president of.

You fly around the world telling our friends and enemies despicable lies like:

” We’re no longer a Christian nation”

” America is arrogant” – (Your wife even announced to the world, “America is mean-spirited.” Please tell her to try preaching that nonsense to 23 generations of our war dead buried all over the globe who died for no other reason than to free a whole lot of strangers from tyranny and hopelessness.)

I’d say shame on the both of you, but I don’t think you like America, nor do I see an ounce of gratefulness in anything you do, for the obvious gifts this country has given you. To be without shame or gratefulness is a dangerous thing for a man sitting in the White House.

After 9/11 you said,” America hasn’t lived up to her ideals.”

Which ones did you mean? Was it the notion of personal liberty that 11,000 farmers and shopkeepers died for to win independence from the British? Or maybe the ideal that no man should be a slave to another man, that 500,000 men died for in the Civil War? I hope you didn’t mean the ideal 470,000 fathers, brothers, husbands, and a lot of fellas I knew personally died for in WWII, because we felt real strongly about not letting any nation push us around, because we stand for freedom.

I don’t think you mean the ideal that says equality is better than discrimination. You know the one that a whole lot of white people understood when they helped to get you elected.

Take a little advice from a very old geezer, young man.

Shape up and start acting like an American. If you don’t, I’ll do what I can to see you get shipped out of that fancy rental on Pennsylvania Avenue . You were elected to lead not to bow, apologize and kiss the hands of murderers and corrupt leaders who still treat their people like slaves.

And just who do you think you are telling the American people not to jump to conclusions and condemn that Muslim major who killed 13 of his fellow soldiers and wounded dozens more. You mean you don’t want us to do what you did when that white cop used force to subdue that black college professor in Massachusetts, who was putting up a fight? You don’t mind offending the police calling them stupid but you don’t want us to offend Muslim fanatics by calling them what they are, terrorists.

One more thing. I realize you never served in the military and never had to defend your country with your life, but you’re the Commander-in-Chief now, son. Do your job. When your battle-hardened field General asks you for 40,000 more troops to complete the mission, give them to him. But if you’re not in this fight to win, then get out. The life of one American soldier is not worth the best political strategy you’re thinking of.

You could be our greatest president because you face the greatest challenge ever presented to any president.

You’re not going to restore American greatness by bringing back our bloated economy. That’s not our greatest threat. Losing the heart and soul of who we are as Americans is our big fight now.

And I sure as hell don’t want to think my president is the enemy in this final battle.


Harold B. Estes

Amen & amen, sir.&#160


The beautiful & talented Michelle reported late Sunday evening that Marjorie “I Creamed My Panties Over Stupak, Waaaaaaah!!!” Dannenfelcher and the rest of the bitches over at the Susan B. Anthony’s List&#160 responded to the caving of Bartleby Stupid Stupak Stupid’s cave-in to the Ayatollah by…stripping him of his “Defender Of Life” award, which was to be awarded to him this coming Wednesday.

Well.&#160 That’ll show him.

Not that what you’re about to read below the fold had anything to do with it, but once news of the turncoat’s el foldo&#160 act became public knowledge, it hearkened me back to November, when I wrote these words:

But what the pro-life movement has done – if it has anywhere near the influence it claims to have – is to hand over one-sixth of the economy to Jugears McHopenchange and the rest of the Al-Obambi Amer-Islamic Communist regime.

Here’s the thing: By passing the Stupid Stupak amendment, Republicans – no doubt under at least some pressure from Majorie Dannenfelser and the bimbos at SFA – and 64 supposedly pro-life Demoscum gave enough Imperial Socialist Congresscritters sufficient cover to justify voting for the entire HR3962 package.

The bill’s final House margin: Five votes (220-215).

The kicker: Without the Stupak amendment, HR3962 most likely goes down to defeat…and there are some in the know who were of the opinion that had that been the case, socialized medicine would have been dead for the next ten (10) years.

Those of you who know me, know&#160 what’s coming.

So, with the news of Bartlby Stupid’s flip-flop now complete, I just had&#160 to write Marjorie Dannenfelcher and remind&#160 her of what she and her single-issue biz-notches have wrought.

Well, well, well, Dannenfelcher (and no, that’s not a typo).

How about your honeyboy Stupak _now???_ Doesn’t it just give you _warm fuzzies_ that he caved in to Bambi like a fucking _woman?_

And for what? A _promise_ by a known liar named B. Hussein Obama?

We had a chance to kill healthcare back in November, but you bitches over there at SBA had to go creaming your fucking panties for Stupak-Pitts. You had to go screaming to your mailing list “Tell them to vote for it!!! Tell them to vote for it!!!!!”. Had we defeated it _then_ we wouldn’t have had to put up with socialized medicine for at _least_ the next 10 years.

But because you trollops are so damned single minded, you swallowed the poison pill, and now your _hero_ has flipped and turned traitor on you, and us. And I blame you morons one. Hundred. Per. Cent.

Bet you’re feeling _real_ smart Right About Now™, aren’t you?

Take me off your mailing list. You fucking sluts aren’t ever getting so much as _one penny_ from me, _ever._


For my trouble, I received the standard, “thanks, we got the email” auto-reply.&#160 Ho.&#160 Hum.

Will Dannenfelcher read my screed?&#160 Eh.&#160 I doubt it.&#160 I wish&#160 she would, but I’m a realist here.

But I do&#160 hope this becomes a lesson to her:&#160 There ain’t no such thing as a pro-life Demoscum.





Learn the lesson, SBA List.&#160 Learn it.&#160 Love it.&#160 Live it.

You can’t trust them.&#160 You are foolish to even consider doing so.

Don’t even try.


Denizens, today is the vote in the Imperial Socialist Congress&#153 over “mandatory” healthcare coverage.&#160 (And I put it in sneer quotes, because even if it does&#160 pass, I’ve already declared I won’t obey it.)

Not to be too melodramatic about it, but today is a watershed date for our Republic.&#160 We’ll find out today just how close we are to civil war.

I don’t exactly have my hopes up.

UPDATE:&#160 According to Riehl, little Bartie Stupid Stupak, the whole linchpin of our stand to try to kill the bill, has caved on the promise of an executive order from Bambi.

Remember the name, Denizens.&#160 Remember his name, along with Ben “Cornhusker Kickback” Nelson, Mary “Louisana Purchase” Landrieu, Marcy Kaptur and a host of other supposedly “pro-life” Demoscummic sellouts.

Lock and load.*

* Your ballots, of course.&#160


Denizens, mark the date & time.

I have done it.&#160 I have accomplished what I would not have thought possible, and had – quite honestly – been told I’d never be able to do.

I have persuaded Mrs. Venomous to lunch with me at Hooters.


Believe it.&#160 I have done crossed the effin’ Rubicon, biz-notches.

MERLIN:&#160 Uh, m’lord, I do not think that word means what you think it means.

VENOMOUS:&#160 Don’t give a shit.&#160 It sounds cool.

MERLIN:&#160 Yes, m’lord.


Awright, so I’m reading everything I can about all the post-Constitution shredding (when I’m not coughing up a lung and Mrs. Venomous isn’t&#160 issuing loud sighs trying to prod me to go to bed at this un-Cthulu-y hour (2:45 am as I write this)), and I come upon this analysis by J.E. Dyer over at HotAir.

What faces us come Monday is the question of what to do about the historic decision that, to all appearances, will go the wrong way this weekend.


It’s essential to be disciplined and non-violent, but I’m not really worried about that. The people who are galvanized now are America’s already-disciplined core: the hardworking people who spend no time complaining about what’s not being done for them, because they spend most of their time making America go. I have no fear that we are an unruly mob. (emphasis mine)

And I start thinking, “Why the hell not?&#160 Our Constitution has been openly pissed on&#160 by Communist bastards who don’t even give a shit any longer about trying to conceal who & what they are, our freedoms are in the most danger, possibly since the origins of our great nation – and you, Dyer, are still wringing your hands in quivering angst about civility?!?!?!

Then I dive into the comments and I get this snot-nose-in-air rejoinder in response from some Caspar-Milquetoast named Cylor:

Thank you for observing this, it’s an extremely vital and welcome change of focus from the kind of moral-equivalency lecturing too many on our side seem to reflexively indulge in.

Good.&#160 Gawd.&#160 Almighty.&#160 Great.&#160 Honkin’.&#160 Cthulu.

We’re all about to become subjects&#160 as opposed to citizens – at least those of us who aren’t going to become enemies-of-the-fucking-state, and all you pussies&#160 can think about is keeping a stiff fucking upper lip?!?!?!

The Demoscum have brought tire irons to kneecap all 300 million of us, and all you fucking little douchebags can do is whimper “Please, sir, don’t hurt us too badly”?!?!


Keep me out of your little tea-party (small “t” and small “p”).

I aim to misbehave, and I aim to disobey.

Better to die on our feet than live on our knees.

Get ready, Denizens.&#160 It gets bumpy from here.


The beautiful & talented Michelle is reporting that the lower chamber of the Imperial Socialist Congress has authorized Shrieker Of The House&#153 San Fran Nan Piglousi to finish ripping the United States Constitution to shreds by employing the Slaughter Solution, aka Demon Pass Deem-and-Pass Demon Pass, to ram the upper chamber’s version of HealthScare down the American People’s collective throat, should it be necessary.

For my part, I do hereby declare, here and now, that I will not comply with this 2,000-page piece-of-excrement excuse-for-a-bill, should Bambi sign it.

But congratulations, Demoscum bastards.&#160 You have just taken one giant step towards the Point Of No Return&#153.

The Can&#153 has been grasped by the handle.

Don’t say you weren’t warned.


If I went over the Bret Baier interview with the Ayatollah with a fine-toothed comb, I could probably get a few dozen posts just from the resulting fisking.

But I have neither the time, nor the patience, nor even the attention span for that&#160 (Hey, maybe that’s the ADHD kicking in.&#160 Is that a pre-existing condition?)&#160 So I’m going to take one part of it, and rip it to shreds.&#160 (The transcript of it is here, BTW.)

I’ve got the exact same e-mails, that I could show you, that talk about why haven’t we done something to make sure that I, a small business person, am getting as good a deal as members of Congress are getting, and don’t have my insurance rates jacked up 40 percent? Why is it that I, a mother with a child with a preexisting condition, still can’t get insurance?

Y’know, I’m getting pretty damned tired of this “oh, I’ve got a pre-existing condition I can’t get insurance” whine I keep hearing.

It’s bullshit.&#160 And I’m living proof of it.

As you know, Denizens – that is, if you’re not a member of the Uninitiated&#153 – I contracted type-II diabetes in 1995.&#160 It’s my death sentence – at some point, I will die from some medical complication that can be traced back to this disease.&#160 It’s about as pre-existing a condition as you can possible get – at least, since 1995.

Since I became a diabetic, I have changed jobs five times.&#160 Four of those changes involved companies which offered health insurance to its employees.&#160 (The fifth one was the preceding one from what I have now, and that was as the next step up from being a pure contractor – no bennies whatsoever.)

I have never&#160 had any problem getting health coverage.&#160 Ever.

Nor do I think I’m the exception – otherwise, why have I never even been called for a pre-coverage physical?

Now maybe there are some&#160 medical maladies which insurance companies won’t cover pre-existing – but then, insurance companies are businesses, too.&#160 They have to make money, just like the companies for which you & I slave our asses off.

So you’ll excuse me if I think the meme about “pre-existing conditions” is nothing but a bunch of hooey.&#160 At least partially, anyway.
