The Four Witches of California

"Frankly, I don't know what it is about California, but we seem to have a strange urge to elect really obnoxious women to high office. I'm not bragging, you understand, but no other state, including Maine, even comes close. When it comes to sending left-wing dingbats to Washington, we're Number One. There's no getting around the fact that the last time anyone saw the likes of Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Nancy Pelosi, they were stirring a cauldron when the curtain went up on 'Macbeth'. The four of them are like jackasses who happen to possess the gift of blab. You don't know if you should condemn them for their stupidity or simply marvel at their ability to form words."
-- Columnist Burt Prelutsky, L.A. Times

Coexist? Don't make me laugh




And here, Tony Blair has grown sterner. After September 11, 2001, he now thinks, he underestimated the power of the bad ''narrative’’ of Islamist extremists. That narrative – that ''The West oppresses Islam” – ''is still there. If anything, it has grown.’’ It seeks ''supremacy not coexistence’’. He fears that ''The West is asleep on this issue’’, and yet it is the biggest challenge. In Africa, all the good things he sees through his Africa Governance Initiative face ''this threat above all others’’. In ''Sudan, Mali, Nigeria, outbursts in Tanzania and Kenya’’, sectarian Islamist extremism is the great and growing problem. By implication, Mr Blair seems to doubt President Obama’s outreach to Islam, because it tends to deal with the wrong people. Since Obama’s Cairo speech in 2009, ''the whole context has changed’’. The Muslim Brotherhood is taking over large parts of the Arab world, and ''the people without the loudest voices are desperate for our leadership’’.''We must engage, but also challenge,’’ he warns. The Middle East ''won’t achieve democracy unless it understands that democracy is a way of thinking as well as voting. The key question is how the majority treats the minority.’’ The West, he says, has been too slow to help the people of Iran: ''It is a great civilisation. The people would undoubtedly boot their government out at the ballot box if they could. It is important they know we are prepared to help them. A Persian spring would be very welcome.’’
from ricochet  via et cetera

The rest of the interview is crap.  He never owns up to the mistakes he made, and oh boy, he did an excellent job of that!  The final sentence - A Persian spring would be very welcome - is one of the most irresponsible remarks I have heard lately, given what happened with the Arab spring.  His conversion to the Catholic Church either hasn't been complete or he just won't let go of his idiot idealogies.  Or both.

Ok, It Is My Turn

Security Checkpoints


Free societies do not subject their citizens to random “security checkpoints” at which federal goons are given carte blanche to abuse the public.

Next we will have to obtain written permission to travel.

Heartbreaking

again Paco says it so eloquently
It is such a tragedy when random acts of violence occur in public spaces.  Everyone tries to blame.. something, anything, anyone, everyone.  But history has shown there is no rhyme or reason when someone snaps and does something horrific.  They just do.  And we rationals try to understand.  We never will.  Evil exists.

Sorry, the blog at ogdaa.blogspot.com has been removed. This address is not available for new blogs.
Did you expect to see your blog here? See: 'I can't find my blog on the Web, where is it?'
knuckledragging my life away has disappeared?  why?  did he hate the won too much?
UPDATE:

Hey, I killed it this afternoon. Man, I've got so much shit going on in my life with family and III stuff that it was getting to be a real chore. I was having to force myself to go post something, you know? When it gets to that point, it's time to piss on the fire, call in the dogs and head for the Big House.
Maybe I'll have time to hit this daily now instead of Saturdays only.

mendacity, manipulativeness, corruption, and toxicity

Today's job market
The Thinking Housewife gave it that title.  I would say "Today's job culture"
I wholeheartedly agree with both ladies' postings.  Especially this:

The worst environments to work for are those that are run by women, or demographically dominated by women, or run or dominated by homosexual men. These places are nightmares of bitchery, cattiness and all the words the female reader used above: mendacity, manipulativeness, corruption and toxicity.  There are quite a few of these, especially in the so-called glamour industries.
My advice to any young woman is to work for a company that is run by a married man. Race not important, but odds are he will be white or Asian. The most important thing is that you work for a grown married man. They are obviously not perfect, and are not saints, and you always have to be very careful at work, but working for a straight married man will increase your chances of job satisfaction by an order of magnitude.

Well Done Mrs. Pitt

Michelle covers it beautifully
Did Jane Pitt realize that when she wrote that letter to the editor that she would create such a brouhaha? She probably didn't; afterall she wrote to her local paper.  Neverless the tolerant progressives (isn't that an oxymoron?) rear their true black hearts once again in order to try to silence those who speak of reality.

Laugh of the Day - This isn't about me

Obama's latest fundraising email (Breitbart)
and the funniest comment:

BORGHESIUSMaybe he should recast his fundraising letter as a Nigerian e-mail scam.
"Dear freind:
My late father, the supreme commander of Kenya, was unjustly dispossessed of his rightful inheritance by the British colonial masters.  Fortunately, on of the bank recently found a inactiv account containing 100,230,000 US dollers. I was refered to you because of your stirling reputation amoung persons in your field.  If you simply provide your social security number, and bank routing number, I will be able to transfer this sum to you for safekeeping until after the next election.
Thak you for your Ongoing support.
Barack H. Obama, Once and future President."

to The Boys of Summer


Happy birthday to our boys of summer - all the men in my family were born between Memorial Day and Labor Day.  To both of my grandfathers, my father, my twin brothers, my 2 nephews, my brother in law and his twin, my sister's stepdaughter's husband, and my other brother in law.  Today we celebrate!
