In case anyone needed any ideas:
For those of you hanging around here instead of spending valuable holiday time with family and friends, Merry Christmas from
all both of us at Six Meat Buffet.
BMac has been bringing it while I tend to the real world and try to ignore politics altogether. Between Trump’s (admittedly entertaining) pandering to the lowest common denominator and Ryan’s final betrayal of what used to pass for an “opposition” party, one must ask the question, “why bother?”
My recommendation is to sit down with a quality whiskey, if you’re a believer, celebrate the birth of Christ, and start stockpiling food, fuel and ammo while you still can. And try and relax, it will all be over soon enough.
And why do I spend my Sunday thinking about this stuff when I should be nursing a bourbon and two sore shoulders from picking away at all this ice that Man Made Global Warming caked 3″ deep in my driveway.
For some, it’s a default thing to do. Your parents were this religion and you never questioned it. Christianity was the default by geography and there was nothing else around. You picked it by going along with whatever your spouse was.
Words I never thought I’d utter: Darrel Waltrip’s speech really got me thinking.
That link is to Waltrip’s speech at the same National Prayer Breakfast where Obama attacked Christians, his own alleged religious affiliation, for The Crusades. In it, Waltrip gives his sincere and moving testimony. If you haven’t seen it in full, it’s a great speech. He talks about “getting off his high horse and getting on his knees”. Later on, Obama talks about how Americans and Christians in particular need to get off their high horse about Islamic Terrorism because of the Crusades or something. And because he just can’t let any perceived slight against Islam go.
Ayatollah Obama’s non-sequitur notwithstanding, I have never heard him give an explanation as to why he converted from Islam to Christianity. He has spoken about his Muslim faith on many occasions. Hearing the calls from the minarets being the most beautiful sound in the world, etc. It’s a big decision that people of faith would not take lightly.
If a Democrat Party operative, pretending to be a reporter, is that interested in plumbing the depths of Obama’s plainly obvious faith – then why not go straight to the source? Personally, I would be intrigued to hear about Obama’s conversion from the Islamo-death cult, getting the knees of his freshly pressed slacks dirty to ask for forgiveness and humbling himself before a Jew even though he was already perfect.
What event could have triggered such a conversion? There have been several, wildly different versions that Obama has offered himself of how he became some type of Christian. But, and it may just be the cynic in me, it appears that he “converted” to Christianity when he moved to Chicago, lost an election to Bobby Rush for not being black enough, ran up a crap ton of campaign debt, and enrolled in Reverend Jeremiah Wright’s hugely influential church solely to get his endorsement and help to get elected.
Wright himself has previously said that he made it easy for Buh-rock to not have to renounce his Islamic faith.
Klein says Obama originally sought out Wright to discuss community activism.
“Quickly the conversations turned from picking up garbage on the street and getting streetlights put up on street corners to political matters and religious matters,” Klein says. “And the Rev. Wright turned into really a substitute father figure, who guided Obama in the two major areas of his life.”
The first area was Obama’s identity — just who was he?
“Obama was steeped in Islam but knew nothing about Christianity,” Klein says.
Klein asked Wright if he converted Obama from being a Muslim into a Christian.
“He said, I don’t know about that. but I can tell you that I made it easy for him to come to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and not feel that he was turning his back on his Islamic friends and his Islamic traditions and his understanding of Islam,” Klein says.
That is coming from the Reverend who allegedly converted him. Understanding who Christ is or was is not an acceptance of him as your God. Perhaps all of these inquisitive reporters might consult Reverend Wright as to his opinion? They’ve already gone back to Scott Walker’s college teacher from 25 years ago to tell him to “man up” about answering questions on evolution. Obama only left Wright’s church in 2008. If my Common Core calculations are correct, that was only a potato ago.
As a lifelong atheist, it would be tremendously beneficial for my soul and to save me from eternal damnation to hear how Obama was reborn in the blood of Jesus Christ and saw that he was the light and the only true path to Heaven. What Christian leader would disagree with getting that kind of message out there?
For crying out loud Barack, Reverend Wright saved your goddamned soul from worshiping the false god Allah and his child molesting prophet Muhammad. Why won’t you try to save mine? It’s your obligation as a Christian!
For those of you who do that kind of thing, please keep our brother Nigel in your prayers as he goes through some health issues. We know that he shall overcome, but every prayer counts.
Nigel tells us that Toad Blogging might make him feel better. So without further ado, Stalky the Democratic Opposition Researching Frog.
Get well, Nigel!
You may have noticed that we temporarily dropped off the face of the earth, but fear not, no hate-filled hackers can keep us down.
And just to be clear, this is ghey.
Now they can finally wed…

Happy 4th, dear reader.
In what, unfortunately, is becoming part of a continuing series.
When last we left our listing ship of state, an Iraqi War Vet was intentionally murdered in his home by a SWAT team who wanted no prisoners and has since taken a vow of silence that would make monks envious.
Since then, our beknighted Supreme Court has held that evading our increasingly militarized police force in itself constituting a “violent felony” and the Department of Education (which shouldn’t even exist) has discovered that it has the power to issue warrants for arrest and maintain a standing SWAT team to enforce Collections of past due student loans with deadly force or other non-violent offenses.
I can only assume that Chief Injustice Roberts and Injustice Alito will soon find that inability to payback the loan on your education constitutes a violent felony as well and is “inherently dangerous” because you have created a situation where the SWAT team might kill you.
This is not America.Â Our Supreme Court has a prevailing statist homodoxy with no regard for the 4th Amendment or individual liberty.Â Â I blame the Harvard/Yale monopoly on the court.Â Sure we’ve got two Italians, a black, a wise Latina, two lesbians, a clatch of metrosexual crackers and a flip-flopping Father Time but they all have one thing in common – Homodoxy of Education.Â Â They all went to the same two schools and have never been exposed to a world outside of those Ivy League enclaves.Â We’re a country of 300 Million plus people.Â How can 9 people from two schools possibly be the one size fits all approach when they’ve all mutated from the same intellectual petri dish?
It’s time for a moratorium on Harvard and Yale being anointed to lead our country and the court. The Egghead-ocracy has failed or else we wouldn’t be complaining.Â We’re living in The Simpson’s “They Saved Lisa’s Brain” episode with deadly results.
Sometimes evading the police is a necessity.Â Ask any woman traveling alone who has been pulled over by an unmarked police car.Â Almost anyone would tell her that if she cannot identify the car behind her as a police car that she should continue driving, following the rules of the road, to a well-lit public area.Â By the standard the Supreme Court has enacted this week, any criminal impersonating a police officer has a new weapon in their rape arsenal provided by our illustrious Supreme Court.
I also take it that now any time a van full of illegal aliensÂ refuses to pull over that they will all be charged with felonies and deported, correct?
Why are our cars designed to travel faster than the speed limit?Â Why are we even given the choice if the penalty for using it is the loss of your voting rights and ability to get a job? And above all else, why are we surrendering individual freedom to people who have been shown time and time again to fall far from sainthood and abuse it?
The Supreme Court is making police officers the new Priesthood.Â Instead of Scarlet A’s on our chests they mark Scarlet DUI’s to the sung glory of MADD madrigals.Â Instead of molesting altar boys, they coerce sexual favors from motorists in exchange for leniency.Â Not all, but enough to not give the entire profession a pass on infringing on everyone else’s rights.
Our highest court has been compromised and with it our freedom is on hiatus for their lifetime appointments.Â The Dark Ages of American Liberty.
Thank God the Harold Camping jokes are almost over. They’ve been rare, if non-existent, here and I thank everyone for that.
To that end, Mr. Camping got people talking about their faiths in the living rooms of their neighbors and the eye-rolling, gallows humor of the rare few with jobs left.Â Singing along to Camping’s Jonathan Edwards cover band.
If it takes the imminent threat of eternal damnation to change the way you treat your fellow man then your faith’s credibility ranks somewhere near Camping’s clairvoyance.
The man’s almost dead.Â I’m sure he thought he would be dead before this date came and went.Â When I was 20, I thought I would be dead by 25.Â It’s why we drink.Â It’s why we smoke.Â Â It’s not that we think we’re indestructible.Â It’s that we’re painfully aware of how vulnerable we are to a nihilistic degree.
Camping’s no different than Al Gore and the Hot Earthers.Â I thought all the coastal cities were supposed to be modern day Atlantises by now!Â How many passes does this guy get?Â An armada of polar bears on ice floes should be threatening invasion of Southern California by now.
This planet hates us.Â The story of human history starts with our adaptation and conquest of it and then each other.Â Every once in a while, it reminds us that we don’t control it.Â So quit trying.Â You can’t balance a budget, quit telling us that you can manage a tilted spinning mudball with a Happy Fun Ball center.Â And quit pretending you’re any different than some nut with a shock of white hair waiving a bible at us and telling us that we’re all doomed if we don’t repent and by $50 LED bulbs.
By my count, Camping’s been an amateur compared to how much money the environmental movement has looted from the Treasury.Â At least his followers were given a choice.
I have my doubts.Â For those who are still disgusted by the perpetually going-off-half-cocked behavior of Arizona Sheriff Clarence Dupenik, who blamed right-wing radio for a paranoid schizophrenic Democrat shooting Gabby Giffords, it’s of no comfort that his pre-meditated murder (and subsequent cover-up) of a two tour Iraqi War veteran in his own home will be applauded by the allegedly conservative Justices Roberts, Alito, Scalia &Â Thomas:
A Tucson, Ariz., SWAT team defends shooting an Iraq War veteran 60 times during a drug raid, although it declines to say whether it found any drugs in the house and has had to retract its claim that the veteran shot first.
And the Pima County sheriff scolded the media for “questioning the legality” of the shooting.
Jose Guerena, 26, died the morning of May 5. He was asleep in his Tucson home after working a night shift at the Asarco copper mine when his wife, Vanessa, saw the armed SWAT team outside her youngest son’s bedroom window.
“She saw a man pointing at her with a gun,” said Reyna Ortiz, 29, a relative who is caring for Vanessa and her children. Ortiz said Vanessa Guerena yelled, “Don’t shoot! I have a baby!”
Yes, it’s an isolated incident.Â Not nearly as isolated as we would like to believe. But the revolutionary disrespect for the Fourth Amendment from Rookie SWAT/Hired Murderer #1 all the way to Supreme Court Chief Justice makes me question my continued citizenship.Â We’ve got to expect the murder of a few innocent eggs to make our Drug War omelet and if they were innocent after all – well, fuck it.Â Don’t you dare have the temerity to question the policy.Â After all, who do you think you are?Â A free person in a country that respects your right to life, secure in your personal property or to pursue your individual happiness?
When you no longer have a right to defend yourself from someone anonymously and violently breaking into your home, you’re no longer in America anyway.
I like coupes. Two doors and six cylinders is my simple automotive mantra for attaining vehicular Nirvana. That’s why I was wish-listing on the Interwebs last night with Infinity G37 Coupe*.
While surfing this morning I see this Google ad (note the first link).
So I conducted a little Thought Exercise, I deleted the cookies and refreshed the page. Yep, we are being profiled.
No one, least of whom me, should be surprised by this. I just find the technology both fascinating and creepy as hell.
Another interesting point is that I used Bing** last night. Yet the result came up through Google ads.
* If you’re curious, the car is nearly $40k. As mentioned earlier, it’s a wish list.
** Sergy Brin’s smug disregard for privacy is sometimes enough for me to embrace Bill Gate’s smug regard for monopolistic business practices.
Kiss my ass, President Obama.
October 1st is fast approaching and it is that time of year when [My Employer] renews health insurance coverage. This year we are going to continue to offer our current plan with Aetna as well as a second similar plan.
Attached you will find a power point that provides a brief comparison of the two plans. Also, attached are detailed outlines of both the medical plans.
The cost of the current plan, Aetna 6.3 POS, is going to increase over 24%. The second plan, Aenta 6.4 POS is only going to increase of 10% from our current rates.Below is a chart of the medical and dental cost.
Kiss my ass Nancy “Let’s pass this to see what’s in it” Pelosi. Kiss my ass Unions who demanded that it be funded with Cadillac plan taxes, but not their Cadillac plans. Kiss my ass liberal college students who agitate for justice as long as the only cost to them is the evening they could have spent watching Mad Men ironically. Kiss my ass Eurotrash who think that Americans are too selfish to embrace big State nannyism. Kiss my ass Blue Dog Dems.
Did I miss anyone? If so, they can kiss my ass too.
Obama plays golf while wife speaks in Arkansas
(AP) â€“ 9 hours ago
WASHINGTON â€” President Barack Obama is playing golf while his wife, Michelle, delivers a college commencement speech in Pine Bluff, Ark.
The president watched his daughter Malia play soccer Saturday before heading to the Fort Belvoir course to play golf.
Politicizing the gulf oil spill, having Iran spit in our face,plotting the destruction of Israel, bragging about how high unemployment is actually a sign of economic recovery, and oh yes, ignoring the largest non-hurricane disaster in US history – oh yes he can and no, he can’t be bothered.
Hrm, I certainly remember how this played out a few years ago.
Two AP photos from this past Tuesday, placed side by side, tell a story.
Here a fellow named George W. Bush is having a delightful time playing a guitar given to him by country singer Mark Wills after a visit to Naval Base Coronado in sunny southern California. It’s fun to be president.
Here firefighters and rescue workers try to cope with the worst disaster to strike Americans since 9/11. It is not a good day for them.
David Corn, September 2005
Where little Davey Corn on this?Â Where all my commies?
Yea, you can imagine.Â Playing politics and the race card as usual.
Six years ago today, this little blog started. It has run the gamut from 8th-tier blog, to several beautiful weeks as 1st-tier blog, eventually settling in to our cozy little spot in 3rd-tier blogdom.
Life was simpler then. We spent time arguing about the idiotic socialist-lite, country-club Republican ways of President Junior. We chuckled as Lurch Kerry tried to dethrone the Bush family in 2004. How bad must you suck to lose to a liberal, country-club, elitist Republican like that? Just ask Kerry and Gore, they know. And they still suck out loud in every facet of their putrid existences.
Most of all, we’ve spent quality time together mocking the gaggle of commies on the left. Now that we’ve got a Marxist in the White House and a bunch of card-carrying useful idiots in congress ram-rodding George Soros’ new great society down our throats, it’s just not as amusing as it once was.
However, six years later, we’re still here and we’re still taking pot-shots and fighting the power. It’s not as cool to fight the power when you’re white, male and conservative, but since when have we ever worried about being cool?
So happy birthday to us and screw everyone who doesn’t hoist an adult beverage in our honor today!
On a good day, the country of Haiti is a little glimpse of what the tropical areas of hell might be like. After the earthquake, it’s unimaginable.
The Anchoress has a massive round-up of ways to help.
I’ve also put up a link in the sidebar to World Vision, one of my preferred charities with their hands already at work down there. There are many worthy ways to help, so do what you can wherever you feel will do the most good.
And Merry New Year and what-not from all of us at the Buffet.
It’s not about gifts, it’s about the greatest gift of all.
I just got this email from our excellent public school (no, really!) regarding Tuesday’s Presidential Message to Our Youth.
Previous Message: At 12pm on September 8, President Barack Obama will deliver a national address to the students of America.
The Pennsylvania Secretary of Education and the Secretary of the US Department of Education have encouraged all students to view the event. As with any national event, teachers and students are encouraged to view the speech as schedule and teaching plans permit.
Should the building schedule preclude the viewing of the speech, students will have the opportunity to view it with their families at a later time.
Here’s the question in two parts; How do you feel about it and what, if anything, are you going to do with your child on that day?
I’d put up a poll, but I’m at the office and have many enemies who are planning my destruction. I have already said too much.
I have bad news, friends.
I’ve just received word that Preston is suffering from the Swine Flu. Worse, he unsuccessfully tried to self-medicate with a Nyquil and Meth cocktail.
Michele, ever the heroine, tried to rush Preston to the ER only to be accidentally run off the road when the credit ape became unmoored and hit her speeding Ford F-150.
Completely unrelated, but equally tragic, our very own Brian was beaten near senseless by a group of hairy Nashville Scene staffers ironically wielding their Pabst Blue Ribbon bottles.
So, while our friends are incapacitated, I’m going to make a few changes around here. Not sure what that will entail, but rest assured, it will suck.
That is all.
… your wife refers to this as “The Laundry Song”.
