Targeting The North Rim

The tour continues.

This week it's a plunge south into the Mesquite, Nevada furnace. Then through Hurricane, Utah into Zion National Park and the north rim of the Grand Canyon.

It's gonna be hot down there. I'll take some pictures. Probably won't be posting anything for a few days- at least until Monday as I ponder our epic fall into socialism.


Maybe Shaky Was Right

  I am in awe.

I am in awe that so many seemingly intelligent people could act so stupidly and so short sighted-ly. Obama and the Supreme Court members. Harvard indoctrinations. Lawyers. Most of Congress too.

Maybe Shaky had it right.

As the famous remark by the plotter of treachery in Shakespeare's King Henry VI shows - "The first thing we must do is kill all the lawyers," - the surest way to chaos and tyranny even then was to remove the guardians of independent thinking.

Are lawyers the guardians of independent thinking? Is that how it is? Are the rest of us chopped liver because we chose not to waste our lives studying the man made history of law? Does common sense, economics, or a history of democratic governments failing have no bearing?

The trappings of man are simple. We seek short term solutions and completely ignore the larger picture. The large picture of course, is ultimately, chaos and collapse. Obamacare will help accomplish that.

I cannot speak for all of the world but I can speak to what I have witnessed here.We look for and seek short term solutions because our lives are short and finite. We seek only comfort while we are here. We do not really care about other lives or the people who follow us even though we say we do. We are like the abusive husband who kicks the shit out of his wife every night while telling her how much he loves her.

So what really happened here is simple. Our generation (the boomers) have hijacked the earnings of our children. We have saddled them with debt burdens that they can never pay. Because the boomers, guys like Obama, Congress, and that Supreme Court, have the POWER to tax you and make it stick. As we grow older now, the boomers have found a path to free health care. It's going to be paid for by the kids or not at all. Because we don't see the bigger picture nor do we really care.

We boomers will all be gone in 40 years. And the harsh reality is- is that we don't really give a shit how you youngsters pay for it. We will not be on this rock anymore. Or so we think.

I want you to know that what happened here today was wrong. I am a boomer. I can't apologize for the year I was born anymore than a black man can change the color of his skin. But I still know what happened. I was blessed with vision beyond my own life span. We screwed the kids and we continue to do so. We might be the most self centered generation that ever existed.

The subtitle to this blog comes from the God of the Machine. I wish that we could all claim that we are kind and good, forward thinking people. That our motivations are always pure. But that's bullshit. We are self centered and scared. We want free health care or as close as we can get to it- so that it doesn't impinge on the rest of our retirement dreams. Then we're going to tell you that we did Obamacare for your benefit. Because we care about you. God of the Machine stuff. That's the sales pitch of delusional lefties.

Other than that- the rest is bullshit. We hijacked your work product (money) and thus some more of your freedom. I over-estimated the vision of those lawyers in robes. The guardians of independent thinking? Nah. The guardians of self centered-ness? Probably.

One day, a giant group of people are going to think that maybe Shaky had it right. I wish I could be around for that.

It Ain't Holy Water- A Blog Worth Checking Out

I saw this blog a few weeks ago. Today, I added it to my blogroll. I love his banner pic. Worth checking out. Interesting stuff.

The Trunk Monkey Collage

Very funny stuff. Somehow, my favorite one involves the car thief.

Can the Supreme Court Issue a Ruling Without Hedging It?

It's doubtful.

Tomorrow we will get the Supreme Court's ruling on Obamacare. After reading their chicken shit ruling on Arizona's immigration law- and considering that this is an election year- I am going to predict that the court will do the same thing with Obamacare.

I have covered this topic ad nauseum. The bill nobody read with outrageous premiums and penalities nobody knows about. Obama supporters successfully obtaining waivers allowing them to avoid payment and my favorite part of Obamacare...drumroll here....let's pass a bill and implement it so many years in the future- that we will be long gone before anyone can evaluate the negative consequences.

I will also say this. You cannot pass Obamacare without tackling the illegal alien issue. We simply cannot afford to dilute the premium pool with a bunch of non tax paying refugees. 

This bill has absolutely frozen the job market. It has also frozen millions of people like me who have no health care but need some. 

America needs affordable and deliverable health care. I can't wait to see how the Supreme Court rules tomorrow. Millions of us will finally get some direction. I am expecting some half assed ruling. We're sick but I'm afraid Obamacare is no cure.

Where the Moonbat Grows

Stockton, California is a great place to be from. http://in.reuters.com/article/2012/06/25/economy-stockton-idINL2E8HP8Z720120625

So in addition to being the biggest city to ever declare bankruptcy- Stockton has a couple of other things going for it. It is America's fattest and dumbest city. From wiki...

In the February 2, 2011 issue of Forbes, the magazine gave Stockton the dubious distinction of being the "most miserable" US city, largely as a result of the steep drop in home values.[14]
Central Connecticut State University surveys from 2005 and 2006 ranked the city as the least literate of all U.S. cities with a population of more than 250,000.[15][16][17]
According to a Gallup poll, Stockton was tied with Montgomery, Alabama for the most obese metro area in the United States of America with an obesity rate of 34.6 percent.[18

Fat, dumb, and broke.

Another wonderful moonbat social experiment gone awry. Soon the entire state of California will be following suit. I can't believe those high salaried produce pickers can't pull Stockton out of this hole.

Supreme Court On the "Theory" of Immigration Law

Today the Supreme Court issued their ruling on Arizona's immigration law which upheld a police officer's right to check your citizenship status. http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/supreme-court-upholds-key-part-arizona-immigration-law-141927514.html

In the decision, not once did I see anyone refer to the Federal Government's absolute failure to enforce existing law. So here's where it gets funny. The Supreme Court is forced to rule on the theory that the federal government is actually enforcing the law.

In other words, nobody is addressing the real problem- which is a government that fails to do the job that it assigned itself. That's why we have government. To protect us and our borders. We don't hire people to do nothing. They either do a job or they don't. In the real world, we eliminate the people who do nothing.

Every time I fired someone who did nothing- I gained productivity. Funny how that works.
