Billy Mays: 1958 – 2009 29 Jun 2009 @ 08:48Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Well, they say things happen in
threes bunches. And now we have the third another media personality to pass on. (H/T to HDD)
What can you say about Billy, well he certainly was “energetic” on camera. I didn’t get the chance to see the reality show on Discovery Channel he hosted called “Pitchmen”, so I’m not sure what he was like off camera. What I can say is that it is tragic if the way this article is suggesting turns out to be the actual cause of death.
Once again, the condolences of the Southern HQ go out to the Mays family and friends.
(UPDATE UPDATED) Cap-n-trade, errr… Cap-n-TAX gone mad 26 Jun 2009 @ 09:04Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Gubmint, I'm callin' SHENANIGINS , comments closed
Time to get serious.
For those who haven’t had time to catch this, H.R. 2454 (aka, the Waxman-Markey energy bill) is the nefarious plan to tax America into oblivion. All under the auspices of “going green”. I could spend hours typing in the overview of this beatdown of a bill, but just go here to check it out.
Even the Wall Street Journal is saying this thing is a bad idea.
Even more surprising is that the Can’tBeStuck (in last place) networks are chiming in with this interesting piece about the energy and health reform bills. Color me slightly shocked once I read that article.
Folks, the time to get involved is now. The Generalette-to-be and I have already written our House rep to say vote “HELL NO” on the energy bill. You should do the same. Or start stockpiling cash cause any form of energy, from your electric to the gas for your car/truck/SUV/RV/Hummer is going to chew into more of your monthly budget. Like starting tomorrow!
UPDATE (1015 hours): Seems the weasel Demonscum have added
100 341 (H/T to David) pages to this bill overnight in order to “pork up” the bill. This is pathetic people. Get out there and let your House reps know they need to vote “NO”.
Michael Jackson: 1958-2009 26 Jun 2009 @ 08:37Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Not got much to say about this one since TMZ has extensive coverage, Misha has posted his thoughts, Darth’s secret lover posted her comments, and the lame stream pukers have posted on this ad nauseum already.
Yes, he was a talented singer…before he went WACKO. Misha got it right in the title of his post, “Wacko Jacko”. But being who we are here at the Southern HQ, we still offer our condolences to the Jackson family at their loss.
Friday head-scratcher 26 Jun 2009 @ 07:56Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Humor, Technobabble , comments closed
Had to lighten things up a little for Friday. Between triple-digit temps here and the humidity creeping upwards, it’s been a draining week. So here’s something from the lighter side of life.
Check out after the fold.
Look closely at the pictures below. Then continue reading after.
These images were captured from a city located in India. Yes India, that country where a lot of our American companies outsource their Help Desks to. Answers that annoying question of why your call got disconnected or why the call sounds like your talking into a tin can now doesn’t it.
Try not to laugh too hard….
Farrah Fawcett:  1947 – 2009 25 Jun 2009 @ 11:56Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Information has appeared on the radar that former “Charlie’s Angel” star Farah Fawcett has passed away. Reports from earlier today say friends and family had been called to her bedside to say their goodbyes. Similar to Ed McMahon, Farah has been battling serious health issues and as we can see she has now been called home.
Once again, the Southern Command HQ sends out our condolences to the family.
Ed McMahon:  1923 – 2009 24 Jun 2009 @ 11:19Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : In Memoriam , comments closed
Well, another TV icon has passed on. Most of you I’m sure have heard that Ed McMahon passed away yesterday at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center from complications of numerous afflictions. All of us knew Ed. From his days as the sidekick for Johnny Carson on “The Tonight Show” to hosting “Star Search”, and the ubiquitous commercials for the Publisher’s Clearing House Sweepstakes. You can read more here.
The members of the Southern HQ extend our prayers and condolences to the McMahon family.
(UPDATED) Weekend madness 24 Jun 2009 @ 10:49Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Life in the Southern Command HQ , comments closed
Okay denizens, the Generalette-to-be and I had one of those weekends were Mr. Murphy decided to visit us and STAY. First off, I tried running the wiring for the home theater system at her house and proceed to only accomplish loosing my temper and about 12 pounds of sweat while up in the attic. Unfortunately, that is a job that will have to wait.
Then Mr. Murphy insisted on finishing off the weekend by deciding her A/C system needed some servicing. From what the a/c tech can figure, there was a power surge that proceeded to fry the system board on the attic unit and the step-up transformer as well. We were also told that our system was the third of the weekend that a power surge BBQ’d the system board. So the TOTD (tip of the day) is consider getting surge protection for your A/C system (we ALL have surge protection on our “toys”, right?). Save yourself a bit of trouble tomorrow.
Because of all this “madness”, I’ve not got anything for today. Be back tomorrow, hopefully.
UPDATE: As of 06/23/09 Cold air ability has been restored to the residence-to-be. Kind of an expensive repair, but if you know what the temps have been like here around the Southern HQ you’d pay whatever it took too.
Reading assignment from the General 17 Jun 2009 @ 22:28Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Breaking News, Gubmint , comments closed
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls….here is your reading assignment.
You WILL go here and read this letter. You WILL do it now.
If you are like everyone else that frequents here, you are like both Darth and myself in that you are completely FED UP with what Obamanation is doing to us and the mockery they are making of our Constitution, you will read that letter.
Take five minutes, heck take fifteen minutes if you need to. Just read it.
Then do what I and the Generalette-to-be have done. Sign the petition that is linked on the same page.
If you care about your country and are tired of the total disregard Al-Obambi and the ENTIRE Washington Inside-the-Beltway clan has for “We The People”, then it’s now time to have your voice heard.
Who is Gerald Walpin? 17 Jun 2009 @ 11:31Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Gubmint , comments closed
Not got a lot of time to write an extensive post, but this is a HOT one!
If you don’t follow Glenn Beck, happen to frequent the Washington Examiner, or don’t really care for articles by Byron York….you’re likely to have missed this one. Of course, our unbiased, non-judgmental, non-agenda seeking Lame Stream Lapdog Sleazedia will never catch on to this issue. Even if they could win a Pulitzer for reporting it.
Folks, this one stinks more than a Arkansas turkey farm in August…or even more than Congress giving themselves a raise when the economy is in the tank and those same people are saying “cut costs”.
Pay attention to this one, cause this one has the potential to put Al-Obambi out of office. Maybe even out of the country….well, we can “Hope” for that sort of “Change” now can’t we???
And now for something completely different 13 Jun 2009 @ 10:03Posted by Supreme General Rayegun in : Humor , comments closed
Before jumping in to the bag of stuff that has been annoying the crap out of me, I wanted to post something a little more…shall we say…..light-hearted.
Something most of us can relate to on a day-to-day basis.
Our sanity (or lack thereof, depending on the person). With that in mind, here are 14 things you can do to prove to others that your sanity has not left you as quickly as our freedom, liberties, or hard-earned money does thanks to those “52 Percenters” who insisted on “Change”.
- 1. At lunch time, sit in your parked car with sunglasses on and point a hair dryer at passing cars. See if they slow down.
- 2. Page yourself over the intercom. Don’t disguise your voice!
- 3. Every time someone asks you to do something, ask if they want fries with that.
- 4. Put decaf in the coffee maker for 3 weeks. Once everyone has gotten over their caffeine addictions, switch to Espresso.
- 5. In the Memo field of all your checks, write ‘For Marijuana’.
- 6. Skip down the hall rather than walk and see how many looks you get.
- 7. Order a Diet Water whenever you go out to eat, with a serious face.
- 8. Specify that your drive-through order is ‘To Go’.
- 9. Sing along at the opera. If you’re not an opera person, go to the movies and quote the lines each character says as they are saying it.
- 10. Five days in advance, tell your friends you can’t attend their party because you have a headache.
- 11. When the money comes out of the ATM, scream ‘I Won! I Won!’
- 12. When leaving the zoo, start running towards the parking lot, yelling ‘Run For Your Lives! They’re Loose!’
- 13. Tell your children over dinner, ‘Due to the economy, we are going to have to let one of you go.’
- 14. PICK UP A BOX OF CONDOMS AT THE PHARMACY, GO TO THE COUNTER AND ASK WHERE THE FITTING ROOM IS.
And the final way to keep a healthy level of insanity;
Try not to laugh too hard….
