Really, Chuck?

26 September 2011
Sen. Charles "I'll defend the 4th amendment when politically expedient" Schumer

“OnStar is attempting one of the most brazen invasions of privacy in recent memory.” – Senator Charles Schumer, D-NY

Really Chuck? Are you saying that your memory does not extend back to the implementation of the mandatory, invasive, all-revealing BODY SCANS that you and your cronies mandated the TSA do to babies, old ladies, or anyone TSA agents find attractive? You can’t remember the imposition of “anything goes” pat-downs you and your cronies made SOP for anyone not willing to allow you folks to put the air industry out of business by your efforts to make it too uncomfortable for most law-abiding Americans to fly?

Unfortunately, Chuck, the rest of us consider that to be in recent memory, and your contrived outrage pales in comparison. Yes, OnStar should not be availing themselves of the Big Brother capabilities of OnStar without customer consent – but I think the senator doth protest too much. Frankly, based on recent congressional forays into our privacy, I think you’re just jealous…


The World According To Harry

21 September 2011
You, too, Harry.
Same to you, Harry. Same to you…

“…A balanced approach to reduce our deficit means those who have benefitted the most from policies that created our deficit should also help solve our deficit.” –Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid

OK – I think I follow you, Harry. But just how will those on welfare be able to contribute to reduce the debt? How much will the foreign governments kick in? How much can you count on from illegal aliens, Harry?

What? Oh! You didn’t mean those who actually derived some benefit from the policies that created our deficit; you meant the ones who you government hacks suck the lifeblood from to fund your largess.

Sorry. My mistake…


Taxing Who?!

14 September 2011

I have to say that I think the president’s team has been rather brilliant putting this [jobs bill] together. If the American Jobs Act — that’s a terrific name for it — and he’s paying for it by doing something that 70 percent of Americans believe would be the right thing to do, which is to raise taxes on the people who got us into this mess in the first place. So now the Republicans are going to have to vote to, if they want to kill this bill, they’re gonna have to vote to give all the people that Americas can’t stand more money. And in doing so they’ll keep ordinary Americans from getting jobs.” –former DNC head Howard Dean

So, Howie, Øbama is proposing to raise taxes on Congress?!


This means war?!

14 September 2011

There’s been much ado in the conservative press about The Øne not condemning Hoffa’s inflammatory comments at a Detroit Labor Day gathering. Øbama claims to not have heard the comments, and I believe him!

It is doubtful Hoffa’s comments were flashed upon The Teleprompter of The United States as they were made, so there is really no way Øbama could have been aware of them. Just sayin’…


I’m Baaaack!

13 September 2011
Not Mine:'s

After a long bout of  ‘net laryngitis, Pateratic is back at it. Problem had to do with a new version of WordPress vs. an old version of PHP.  To update to the new version of PHP on that old server was too dangerous to all the other folks residing there, so I set off to find a new box to pop out of.

In any case, I’ve got my voice back, and none too soon with all the fun stuff going on out in the world lately.

Of note:

  • The Patriot Post has published a rumor of their own impending litigation against the US Government for trampling on our Constitution. Be sure to subscribe at to get in on the “ground floor” of this one.  Shoot! Liberal organizations have used the legal system to impose their will on the rest of the country for about… Well, about as long as there has been a US legal system.  Turnabout isn’t just fair play – it’s a necessary and, hopefully, effective weapon in our own armory.
  • Gibson Guitars is under siege for importing wood from India. Wood the Indian government says they are perfectly okey-doke with Gibson exporting from their bonny (or not-so-bonny) shores. Why would the US Gumint raid Gibson under the Lacey act, then, when the Indian government has stated there is no issue? Why only Gibson? Other US-based luthiers use the same rosewood in their guitars.  Could it be that it’s not actually the wood at all, but the fact that Gibson has been found guilty of exporting greenbacks into the opposing political camp? Hmmm.
  • The Republican candidate scene is definitely heating up but, more interestingly, The One’s polling numbers have been so abysmal that there is rumor that he will face a primary challenge as well. Interesting stuff.
  • Another Obama relation finds himself knowing the right people in order to avoid yet another deportation order. Frankly, I can’t recall a president in my lifetime who had close relatives who were not US citizens, let alone illegal aliens. Rekindles the flame around the question: “How did he get in there?

Ah. Feels good to be back…


Enemies, foreign and domestic

13 September 2011

Enemiesdomestic. What comes to mind when you see those two words together? Yeah, yeah – I know: the usual suspects: Soros, Pelosi, Couric, Reid, Frank, Matthews, Dodd, Edwards, Obama, etc. How about The Sierra Club? Or, perhaps, The United States Humane Society, or The World Wildlife Fund?

Recently, I came across some very, very good news! Oil fields in Texas, thought exhausted, still contain BILLIONS of barrels of oil locked in the shale below. Better, a process called “hydraulic fracturing” could break it free and enable it to be pumped to the surface! Wow! That could certainly put a dent in our “foreign oil addiction,” couldn’t it?  Enter a new domestic enemy: WildEarth Guardians, an organization I’ll bet you’ve never even heard of. Toss in the “sand dune lizard“, and you have a brand new domestic enemy working their destruciton on the US via their favorite weapon: The Environmental Protection Agency, an agency borne of the lie perpetrated against the world regarding the use of DDT – a chemical singly responsible for the elimination of malaria in the US and many nearby regions – a chemical direly needed in foreign lands but, alas, it was maligned by a “study” that suggested it was responsible for birth defects – a study of which the methods and “science” were called into question within the last ten years.

The EPA:The Left’s  Sledgehammer against the constitution.

Note: This was the post I was working on when the WordPress update went so horribly south in May of 2011. Though it shows a publication date of 13 September 2011, please not that it is MONTHS older than that…
