An Obama Pickup Truck

I stopped by the Chevrolet Dealership yesterday, for a look at the new Silverado 1500 pickup. Just for fun, I took it out for a test drive. I wanted to sense that new “feel” before they become extinct. The salesman (a black man wearing an Obama “change” lapel pin) sat in the  passenger seat describing the truck and all its “wonderful” options. The  seats were of particular interest. He explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat. Feeling like messing with him, I mentioned that this … Continue reading

The Hoggtown Redneck Zoo

A small zoo in Hoggtown, Arklabama obtained a very rare species of gorilla. Within a few weeks the gorilla, a female, became very difficult to handle. Upon examination, the veterinarian determined the problem. The gorilla was in heat. To make matters worse, there was no male gorilla available. Thinking about their problem, the zookeeper thought of Ed Lee Walton, a redneck part-time worker responsible for cleaning the animal cages. Ed Lee wasn’t very bright, but possessed ample ability to satisfy a female of any species. The Zoo Keeper thought they might have a solution. Ed Lee was approached with a … Continue reading

Obama Issues New EO’s Against Guns

From the Washington Times: President Obama ordered two more executive actions Thursday to restrict guns, banning the re-importation of military surplus firearms to private entities and proposing a regulation that would close a loophole in background checks. On the day B. Todd Jones is being sworn in as the new director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, the White House said the ATF is proposing to conduct background checks on firearms registered to a trust or corporation. The administration said felons and others prohibited from having firearms currently are able to avoid background checks by choosing this route. “ATF reports that last … Continue reading

Crazy Idea

Ok, in keeping with my POV that the States are the necessary vehicle to change things in D.C., here’s a crazy idea … Beginning September 4th, 2013, all conservative or libertarian leaning type groups will stop communicating with anyone in Washington D.C.  No calls, no emails, no nada. Everyone will instead inundate their State legislative and executive branches with one message: Reverse the power of the national government and take back our State’s place in the Republic. Articles in magazines or on blogs will print only news and information about individual States. There is one thing the elected in D.C. … Continue reading

Sometimes, Senator Lee, Motive Does Matter

Recently I saw the old Hitchcock movie, Lifeboat.  The story centers around a group of Americans whose ship is sunk by a German U-boat, leaving them stranded on a lifeboat.  Soon the U-boat is also sunk, and an evacuated German sailor seeks refuge with the Americans in the lifeboat.  The Americans disagree about whether or not to let him on the boat but ultimately they do.  The plan is to try and guide the lifeboat to Bermuda, but they have no compass and are unsure about the accuracy of their course.  Eventually the German sailor takes charge of the boat and … Continue reading

Meet Your Fate

Welcome liberals and the uninvolved: Think of the United States as an airplane.  Its structure is held together with rivets.  These rivets are made of the ideals expressed in the Declaration of Independence.  Their placement is dictated by the U.S. Constitution.  The result is the airplane called the united States, a Constitutional Republic. A unique country amongst all the others. Some rivets have corroded over time.  Individual liberty and freedom have been rusting away almost from the beginning.  Man has a tendency to want power and control over others.  We rejected a monarchy once upon a time and now have … Continue reading

Obama’s Kingdom: Folly in the Land of Foo CH. 1 [satire]

Disclaimer: all ridicule directed at a pompous, narcissistic, egotistical ne’er-do-well in this satirical treatise is purely intentional. If you do recognize the target of my ridicule, please don’t alert him, just let him go on thinking that he is taken seriously and we really enjoy his speeches. Chapter One, King A’mabo is crowned Once upon a time, there was a magical kingdom called Foo. The Land of Foo was ruled by a tyrannical King named A’mabo. He was an evil man, who believed that the kingdom existed solely for his benefit. He cared about no one but himself and he ruled Foo with an … Continue reading

Obama’s Kingdom: Folly in the Land of Foo, CH. 2 [satire]

Chapter Two, the King Who Wasn’t There [An important note: chapter two plays off of a cast of characters and events that were introduced in chapter one – thus, chapter one should be required reading before being subjected to chapter two] If you need to read chapter one first, here’s a link to chapter one. Witch Sarah of Wasilla Helps Out Sarah of Wasilla was sympathetic to the people of Foo. She’d been following A’mabo’s actions in the New Yore Times since he was inaugurated coronated, and knew how badly his reign was going. She wasn’t surprised that a grassroots faction in Foo had asked for her … Continue reading

Listen and Learn

For anyone happening by who leans left progressive, please take the time to listen to this interview of Mark Levin by Neil Cavuto regarding the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare).  Listen, investigate and learn. Perhaps the most telling remark Mr. Levin makes is that he perceives we may be living in a ‘post Constitutional era.’  Think about that.  If that is the case, we are already in chaos and most don’t even recognize it.  Law, Order, common sense, etc are no longer applicable. Doesn’t that scare you? What prompted me to put this up was Kathy’s post about a group that has filed articles … Continue reading

What Price For Power?

(I first posted this essay on Common Sense Matters II on September 4, 2011.  I am re-posting it here and now because in my humble opinion it is a timeless topic that cannot be repeated often enough.  ˜CW) Many years ago I remember reading a horrifying story about a man who set his young son on fire in a vengeful act against his ex-wife.  I was astonished and sickened that someone could be so consumed with their own selfish need for power and control that they would destroy something good and precious to fulfill that need.  The way I see it there … Continue reading

Forecast: Millions dead within a year, Part 4

This is part 4 of a four-part series about EMP’s and the catastrophic results they can cause. Part 4, Is There Anything We Can Do? In this section, we can only generalize about the damage that might be expected and how well any defenses may mitigate those damages. What and to what degree various devices are susceptible to the EMP pulses are so dependent on the type of EMP (solar or nuclear), the strength of the detonation (or CME), the height of a nuclear detonation, and the location of the devices relative to the source, that the statement, “your results … Continue reading

Forecast: Millions dead within a year, Part 3

This is part 3 of a four-part series about EMP’s and the catastrophic results they can cause. Part 3, Nuclear Detonation as a Source of EMP’s The following statement bears repeating again: “The high-altitude nuclear weapon-generated electromagnetic pulse (EMP) is one of a small number of threats that has the potential to hold our society seriously at risk and could result in the defeat of our military forces.” In a nuclear EMP attack, the damage to power lines, supervisory control and data acqui­sition control systems (for utility systems infrastructure), and commercial computers would very likely be permanent due to fused power lines and lost data … Continue reading

Forecast: Millions dead within a year, Part 2

This is part 2 of a four-part series about EMP’s and the catastrophic results they can cause. Part 2. How damaging could it be? This image shows the geographic areas most susceptible to grid overload and collapse. The map was produced by a computer model showing electrical systems that would be affected by a geomagnetic storm equivalent to the New York Railroad Storm of May 14-15, 1921 event, classed as a “super storm.” The regions outlined by the heavy black lines are susceptible to system collapse lasting months or years. A solar storm like one that took place in 1921 … Continue reading

It’s Time to Demand Accountability

“We must reject the idea that every time a law’s broken, society is guilty rather than the lawbreaker. It is time to restore the American precept that each individual is accountable for his actions.”   – Ronald Reagan From Fox News today: Student left in DEA cell to get $4 million from feds SAN DIEGO –  A 25-year old college student has reached a $4.1 million settlement with the federal government after he was abandoned in a windowless Drug Enforcement Administration cell for more than four days without food or water, his attorneys said Tuesday. The DEA introduced national detention standards … Continue reading

Forecast: Millions dead within a year, Part 1

This is the first of a four-part series about EMP’s and the catastrophic results they can cause. Part 1. What is an EMP and why should I worry? EMP is an acronym for Electro Magnetic Pulse. An electromagnetic pulse is a burst of electromagnetic energy. It can occur in the form of a radiated, electric or magnetic pulse depending on the source. So, why should we be concerned about EMP’s? Because a strong EMP could literally return the country to the dark ages. If the headline or that statement didn’t get your attention, it should have, because an EMP can … Continue reading

The NAACP Calls Lee County Sheriff Mike Scott “Racist”

This is a follow-up to a letter posted here at ‘Nox & Friends on July 23. If you haven’t read the original letter, you can read it here.  H/T to Terry for sending me a link to this story. FORT MYERS, FL (from an NBC-2 report). The Lee county NAACP is calling Sheriff Mike Scott a racist. That’s not all – they are also calling for his job. It comes after Scott sent a letter to the group about why he will not attend or be a sponsor for their annual fundraiser. In the letter, the sheriff says there is a double … Continue reading

Sheriff Mike Scott’s Letter to the Local Head of the NAACP

Following is a letter just beginning to make its way around the country. It was written by a brave and realistic county sheriff and addressed to the president of the county NAACP. It is a worthwhile read and represents the sentiments of many citizens, regardless of location. Kudos to Sheriff Mike Scott! He broke the bonds of Political Correctness (PC) and told it as it is. No doubt, there will be a call for his resignation – how dare he speak the truth? We have ALL had enough. It is time – no, it is PAST TIME to break free … Continue reading

In Defense of Profiling

“The thought police would get him just the same. He had committed–would have committed, even if he had never set pen to paper–the essential crime that contained all others in itself. Thoughtcrime, they called it. Thoughtcrime was not a thing that could be concealed forever. You might dodge successfully for a while, even for years, but sooner or later they were bound to get you.”  – George Orwell, 1984, Book 1, Chapter 1 defines profiling as “the use of specific characteristics, as race or age, to make generalizations about a person, as whether he or she may be engaged … Continue reading

Obama’s Unlucky Friday, the 13th [satire]

The president’s Morning Routine The president awoke at 07:00 sharp. His manservant Achmed helped him out of his unicorn-themed footie-jammies and into his rainbow-themed exercise togs for his morning workout. Barack Obama made the long trek from his bedroom to the workout room on the third floor (an agonizing 5 minute trek). He dropped into Lazyboy One, relieved that the arduous journey was over and instructed Najeed (his designated runner) that today they’d do an hour on the treadmill. Najeed begins to jog and Obama leans back in the First Recliner with his iPad and starts up Angry Birds. Later, after … Continue reading
