PFW: Counterpoint…of a sort 27 Aug 2008 @ 22:56Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Sports-o-rama , comments closed
Since all of us are aware of whom Spats favors when it comes to the NFL Texas Fooo-ball teams, and that by now hopefully ya’ll have been able to surmise that I and the rest of the folks in these here neck of the woods around the Southern Command HQ would probably be ones to prefer the other Texas team, I would request that you wander over here for a quick laugh at the expense of Spat’s Cowgurls.
NOW, I do have to admit that growing up (even when I was a “displaced Texan” living in Illinois) the Cowboys were always my team. But back then, the men that compromised “America’s team” certainly made us proud to be their fans. (Spats, I KNOW you’ll agree with me on that observation)
Not like the more recent years where the team made more news OFF the field than on. In the years since the departure of Landry, Aikman, Johnson, and Smith…it seems that the team has a better arrest record than season record. Yes, Wade Phillips and Jason Garrett have gotten things turned around and some of the old “good” habits are starting to make an appearance again.
But I also happen to have gained an appreciation over the years for the underdog. Ever since Houston got a football team back (and even more so since moving to the local vicinity) and primarily since Gary Kubiak took over the head coaching job, I’ve seen the sort of dedication and desire that was inherent in the teams that Tom Landry coached.
So here’s to the in-state rivalry called the “Governor’s Cup”. Bring it on!
Something to think about 24 Aug 2008 @ 19:45Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Americana , comments closed
I don’t personally agree with the following, per se. Because you just DO NOT mess with that particular document.
What I DO AGREE with is the message that this update is conveying.
So here is an updated version of the PREAMBLE to the Constitution, as well as eleven Articles of Non-Rights:
‘We the sensible people of the United States, in an attempt to help everyone get along, restore some semblance of justice, avoid more riots, keep our nation safe, promote positive behavior, and secure the blessings of debt-free liberty to ourselves and our great-great-great-grandchildren, hereby try one more time to ordain and establish some common sense guidelines for the terminally whiny, guilt ridden, delusional, and other liberal bed-wetters. We hold these truths to be self evident: that a whole lot of people are confused by the Bill of Rights and are so dim they require a Bill of NON-Rights.’
ARTICLE I: You do not have the right to a new car, big screen TV, or any other form of wealth. More power to you if you can legally acquire them, but no one is guaranteeing anything.
ARTICLE II: You do not have the right to never be offended. This country is based on freedom, and that means freedom for everyone — not just you! You may leave the room, turn the channel, express a different opinion, etc.; but the world is full of idiots, and probably always will be.
ARTICLE III: You do not have the right to be free from harm. If you stick a screwdriver in your eye, learn to be more careful; do not expect the tool manufacturer to make you and all your relatives independently wealthy.
ARTICLE IV: You do not have the right to free food and housing. Americans are the most charitable people to be found, and will gladly help anyone in need, but we are quickly growing weary of subsidizing generation after generation of professional couch potatoes who achieve nothing more than the creation of another generation of professional couch potatoes. (This one is my pet peeve…get an education and go to work… Don’t expect everyone else to take care of you!)
ARTICLE V: You do not have the right to free health care. That would be nice, but from the looks of public housing, we’re just not interested in public health care.
ARTICLE VI: You do not have the right to physically harm other people. If you kidnap, rape, intentionally maim, or kill someone, don’t be surprised if the rest of us want to see you fry in the electric chair.
ARTICLE VII: You do not have the right to the possessions of others. If you rob, cheat, or coerce away the goods or services of other citizens, don’t be surprised if the rest of us get together and lock you away in a place where you still won’t have the right to a big screen color TV or a life of leisure.
ARTICLE VIII: You do not have the right to a job. All of us sure want you to have a job, and will gladly help you along in hard times, but we expect you to take advantage of the opportunities of education and vocational training laid before you to make yourself useful. (AMEN!)
ARTICLE IX: You do not have the right to happiness. Being an American means that you have the right to PURSUE happiness, which by the way, is a lot easier if you are unencumbered by an over abundance of idiotic laws created by those of you who were confused by the Bill of Rights.
ARTICLE X: This is an English speaking country. We don’t care where you are from, English is our language. Learn it or go back to wherever you came from!
ARTICLE XI: You do not have the right to change our country’s history or heritage. This country was founded on the belief in one true God. And yet, you are given the freedom to believe in any religion, any faith, or no faith at all; with no fear of persecution. The phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is part of our heritage and history, and if you are uncomfortable with it, TOUGH!
China, the “Milli Vanilli” of Olympic host countries 14 Aug 2008 @ 21:55Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Sports-o-rama , comments closed
For those of you who have been keeping up on the medal counts, maybe you should change what you’re keeping track of. Like the number of LIES and FALLACIES that the Chinese are pulling right in front of the TV cameras.
But wait, it’s gets better. Much better!!!!
If you were one of the dozens or so people that DVR’d the opening ceremony, check out this story, then check it out for yourself. If you didn’t DVR the ceremony, then you gotta read that story! Here’s a snippit:
Well, this is just perfect. At the exact moment Li Ning was rounding the lip of the Bird’s Nest during the amazing torch-lighting climax, someone snapped this photo of our good friend the BSOD nestled among the Nest’s steel twigs.
What’s more is….retired Microsoft big man himself, Billy-Boy Gates was in attendance there at the ceremony. No word on any comment from Gates-y boy that I’ve found so far. But as you’ll remember, Billy-boy has some history with that particular “malfunction“.
Here’s the video if’n you want to reminisce:
And now the latest fake appears to be with the Chinese “women’s” gymnastic team. Or should we say “little girl’s” and not women’s. Seems that the Chinese, given their supposed mastery of things like simple math, don’t know the difference between 16 and 13. Even worse, it looks like the IOC is gonna give a pass on this atrocity…..much like the lame-swine media has passed on digging up the dirt on Breck Boy.
Anyone wanna guess what’s gonna get faked next by the Chinese?
Wake up call #2,346,734 6 Aug 2008 @ 23:24Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : I'm callin' SHENANIGINS , comments closed
Got this in an email from American Solutions. Seems the boys at MorOn.com had to send out an email that obviously just killed them to have to admit what they did.
Seems the libtards over there aren’t liking the fact that we Americans have resoundingly said “Drill Here. Drill Now. Pay Less” is what we want.
Recently, liberal group MoveOn.org in an email to their supporters sounded dejected. They wrote “Here’s the truth: Right now, progressives are losing this argument.”
Awwww, poor bwabies not lwiking lwife wight now????
Tough crap. Y’all are about to get a friggin’ cluebat smack across your smug-arse, arrogant, Botox face once you’re little vacation is over. The fact that Piglosi and other Chicken Little Demonscums chose to intentionally NOT allow a vote on the continental drilling bill and chose to skip town in their private G-IV Gulfstream (yo Piglosi, what’s the “carbon footprint” of that jet fuel belcher), just absolutely proves all they’re damn concerned about is making sure they keep their political power in place.
Only problem, this stunt is basically the first nail in the Piglosi et al coffin. Well, it’ll be a problem for them. For the rest of us, it’ll be time for a Texas-sized BBQ with all the fixins’.
In the energy debate, common sense is winning and it’s got the anti-energy elites rattled because they offer no solutions to lowering gas and diesel prices.
Now why would that be? It certainly doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that one! And the General would know about rocket scientists. We got loads of them here just outside of the Southern Command. NASA is practically our next-door neighbors.
Rope, neigh Steel Cable. Clueless Libtards. Giant Sequoia.
Some assembly requried.
…and now a word from the Southern Command HQ 6 Aug 2008 @ 21:32Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Life in the Southern Command HQ , comments closed
So Edouard crossed over to land just after 0700 yesterday, dumped about 1.5″ of wet stuff on the Command complex. And then basically wimped out throughout the rest of the day.
As weather events go, it was about as useful as Shrieker of the House Piglosi actually calling for a vote on the continental oil drilling bill before leaving for the August break. For those of you in Rio Linda, that means it was a non-event.
Most everything has dried out by today, so everything at Southern Command is back to normal ops.
Steampunk this ain’t 6 Aug 2008 @ 21:20Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Technobabble , comments closed
Steampunk replicas are fine, for some people.
For others only a full-scale, almost 100% working replica built in a garage will do.
Check this gear-geek project out.
I’d give this guy a “12″ on a scale of 1 to 10 (10 being hawt).
