Typical wingnuttery denial.

My hubby dislikes this holiday.

Meh. The kids have fun. :)



So... Does that Make Mooochelle the Bride of Frankenstein? I can just picture her with the streaked bee-hive. :)

Typical wingnuttery denial.

That the economy is REALLY in the tank? I agree.

Thersites said...

Democrats throw trillions at the "problem" over the course of three years and solve nothing... yet they still expect that they can get away with blaming the failed recovery on Bush...

*shakes head*

That picture might be funny if it weren't so true.

How can anyone troll around your blog for years and still be a deranged liberal pain in the ass Z?? Doesn't at least a little bit of what everyone else says sink in? Well, he's back on my "remember to ignore" list as of now.

Gov is incompetent in running an economy. Period. Just let it be. I hope the next president just does that: let it be and stop throwing money at it. B/c it doesn't work. It's never worked if you look at it long term and not short term. If it was working, I would have stayed in Cheeseland with a high paying job and my family around, lauding the great things gov does for you.

Not big fan of Halloween either aside from carving a pumpkin which is artistic fun.

stinky cheese? I wish $5 trillion was merely "stinky cheese".

A fried sent me a cartoon showing Barack and Michelle discussing whether he should dress up as Karl Marx or Robin Hood for Halloween.

But, When I try to download it, my computer changes it from a jpeg file to a aspx file and my computer won't open it.

Anyway, It depicts Obama as saying, "What about Karl Marx for Halloween, Michelle?" and Michelle replying, "The redistribution of wealth thing is more accurate, but Robin Hood's better, politically."

Here's a good costume for Obama or even Biden:

Halloween was originally, long ago, called All Hallow's Eve, which was for the purpose of Christians scaring away evil demons.

It evolved into just a fun night for children to wear costumes, and go trick or treating as we all know.

What's the big deal? I don't think it warrants any criticism. Let's just leave the children to their fun.

I don't see the need to make this controversial or a negative thing.

So, Happy Halloween, and enjoy the cute little children who are excited about their costumes and getting a treat.

Since the cartoon addresses the issue of our economy, I'll focus my attention on that.

We can learn a lot from history, but if only we pay attention to its lessons. We know that no person or entity is good at everything, which is why sophisticated societies are specialized. It explains why civilized people develop complex institutions. We learned early on that kings made lousy priests, that businessmen often became wealthier than their powerful lords were, and we learned big government is a fearful master.

Apparently, the Soviet Union failed to learn any of these lessons; this in turn may explain the genesis of leftist drivel and duck crap heaped upon this blog. Nothing is more instructive than to listen to Ducky wax eloquent about the benefits of Marxism.

I admit that there are some things government does well, and I will even go so far to say that there are some things that ONLY the government can do well. State militias do not protect the union from foreign aggression, so we have a US military. It is nonsensical to imagine that each state should have its own currency, or that independent states can develop cogent fiscal policy that positively affects the nation. Federal regulation of meat packing industries makes good sense. But if we want to maintain a free market, then we must take care that we do not over-regulate it.

I cannot think of one positive aspect of Obama economic policy. Bush first began this errant argument about “too big to fail,” and Obama seized upon it and refuses to let go. Obama has flushed billions of taxpayer money down the “green technology” toilet, but continues to argue that we need additional federal stimulus. He may have put Finnish people to work creating electric cars, but our own people continue to languish in the pit of unemployment.

Left leaning weenies think Obama is wonderful ... proving once again they have no clue. In the long term, it would have been far better to allow banks and industries to file bankruptcy. Because of Obama’s ludicrous policies, America’s economy continues to teeter on the brink of collapse. Meanwhile, let’s continue providing “foreign aid” to China, who owns the deed to our entire country.

It is all so utterly stupid, but then so too were the idiots who overwhelmingly voted for Barack Obama and continue to champion his Marxist cause. The unseen benefit is this: our nation could be much worse off right now if Obama was a competent Marxist.

Which Christians and and Jews still need to scare away today...these "new" demons are now known as fanatic Islamists/ muslims.

Typical wingnuttery denial.

We're TRYING our best to be in denial that this president is slaughtering this country....maybe Halloween will help?


Average American; I've been emailed by a couple of people that they don't come here because of Ducky, but that's stupid. I keep him around for comic relief by now, sort of like watching CNN's women this morning covering the Cain/sexual harassment deal. THAT was HILARIOUS!

The only think I like about Halloween is it's during my favorite time of year and I love the pumpkins, etc.....
But, I liked it as a kid!
Nowadays, I keep the lights off outside and go upstairs for the evening....we don't live in a neighborhood with many children ...
yippeee :-)

Bob said...

FB speaks truth to power with these wise words, "Gov is incompetent in running an economy."

The simple fact is that NOBODY is smart enough o run an economy.

When you hear the words, "Industrial Policy", or "Energy Policy", run in fear because somebody wants to call the shots in the economy by central planning.

Socialist central planning has been shown to be a stupid idea in the largest social laboratories in history. Look at Communist Russia (Soviet Union), Red China, Communist Cuba, Viet Nam, and other countries. The economies were total failures without market reforms.

In a socialist system, the poor are kept poor, and the rich get richer. It is not capitalism or free markets that keep people down, it is governments.

I don't believe you can have true freedom in a socialist state because your economic freedom is stolen by the government, who then decides who gets what you have earned, and how your income will be spent.

If you don't have economic freedom, I don't see how you can have individual freedom, or political freedom.

Socialism is an insidious, creeping menace.

3 strikes and you're OUT, mustang.

1) State militias not only protected the union, they CREATED it. They still do, today.

2) State's once had their own currency:

State (Year Created)

Connecticut pound 1709
Delaware pound 1723
Georgia pound 1735
Maryland pound 1733
Massachusetts pound 1690
New Hampshire pound 1709
New Jersey pound 1709
New York pound 1709
North Carolina pound 1712
Pennsylvania pound 1723
Rhode Island pound 1710
South Carolina pound 1703
Virginia pound 1755

As the Federal government's currency at the time was "not worth a Continental".

Federal regulation of meat packing industries makes good sense.

What, did you just finish reading Upton Sinclair's 1906 edition of "The Jungle"? America would be doing perfectly fine w/o the FDA, thank you very much.

Z said...

Mustang, we just have to keep up the truth and hope enough Americans are SICK of what's going on; how can ANY DEMOCRAT approve pouring MORE money down the drain?? It's PROVEN it's doing nothing for us but sure making China richer. A lot of liberals still really believe FDR didn't prolong the Great Depression and we're supposed to bow down to him for creating welfare!??

Imp, good point.

Lisa, JESTER, perfect!

Mark, that's an insult to Robin Hood! At least he admired the GOOD leader and tried to keep his spirit alive while he was on the crusades! He helped the poor by taking from the greedy jerks but he honored the Good King Richard :-)
We need a president we can admire and look up to again. That'll be the day.


LIBERALDUDE, I'm sure you're still commenting on other conservative blogs so you might not see this, but who DOES pay you to spend your days like this?


FB, I'm glad you're here; you're an asset to America!

Thersites...keep shakin' your head; there'll be a WHOLE LOT A SHAKIN' GOIN' ON this coming year, right?

Thersites said...

reminder for mustang...

In 1904 Sinclair spent seven weeks in disguise, working undercover in Chicago's meatpacking plants to research his fictional exposé, The Jungle. When it appeared in 1906, it became a bestseller. With the income from The Jungle, Sinclair founded the utopian Helicon Home Colony in Englewood, New Jersey. He ran as a Socialist candidate for Congress.

There you have it. The "socialist" (big government) candidate.

We can only hope and pray.

North America doesn't need the "Euro". Just don't outlaw gold and silver, and we'll be just fine.

FrogBurger said...

In a socialist system, the poor are kept poor, and the rich get richer. It is not capitalism or free markets that keep people down, it is governments.

There's little upward mobility indeed in a country like France. Money stays within families or specific circles. People don't trust others and you have to be accepted first to get a chance. And if you fail, there's almost no second chance.

The total opposite of the US where I got a job whereas I could barely communicate professionally. Go try to get a job in socialist France with a high school + college level of French!

God bless America and the free market.

Z said: Not a big fan of Halloween

I like creepy stuff. Perhaps because creepy stuff isn't a real threat and helps the subconscious to let out fears in a healthy way?

We don't get trick-or-treaters here at the AOW house. No sidewalks in our neighborhood, thus making it very dangerous for children to be walking here after dark with cars zooming by. I live in the hub of the universe!

Mustang said...

Well, Thersites, history reflects that state militias were organized in defense against Native American war parties, the French during the Seven Years War, and in rebellion against the English crown. I seem to recall that the helter-skelter militia of the revolutionary period continually had its ass kicked in somewhere around 93% of its engagements with a “well regulated army.” But, yes, they were able to beat up a bunch of bootleggers in Massachusetts. Militias were not adequate during the war of 1812; nor during the Civil War until incorporated into the Union Army. The militia was so inadequate to the needs of our constitution that the Posse Comitatus Act was required to protect local citizens. Likewise, the militia was inadequate during the Spanish-American war.

Discounting units federalized from the National Guard, how did state militias protect the United States from German, Japanese, or Soviet threats?

Say what you want to about Upton Sinclair; I don’t like his politics either, but at the same time, I’d prefer not to eat diseased meat. You can go ahead, if you wish.

Karen Howes said...

LOL-- that's basically it, Z.

I'm not a huge fan of Halloween myself... it was fun when I was a little kid, but...

Pris said...

Yes, it was fun when we were little kids. Well now we still have little kids, and it's their turn to have fun on Halloween.

I love them. They're so cute, and most of them here, say "thank you".

Oh, and Mr. Pris carves a mean pumpkin!

Lisa said...

In a socialist system, the poor are kept poor, and the rich get richer.
Which explains Hollywood Liberals' support of it.

It's kid crazy here right now.Last year we had almost 100 kids. They started about 3:00 today and they haven't stopped since.And being I have to go down a flight of stairs to get the door and the kids have to come up 8 stairs to get to the door, I just try to save them the trouble and run down both flights. I can just see someone suing me for their kid falling down my stairs. And then I have the loony dog getting unhinged with each knock at the door. So needless to say Halloween exhausts the heck out of me. But it's fun. I really do like it.
We have a few people with 4 wheelers who pull carts with their kids on them. I mean like hayride size carts. A van pulled up earlier and about 10 kids descended on the neighborhood and so far 2 four wheeled vehicles with a cart hook up..

Z said...

Lisa, that's great!
I'm with you and Pris....if you don't love Halloween, don't do it, if you do, have a blast! :-)
Those stairs sound grueling, though, Lisa..........eat a LOT of candy, you won't gain an ounce at the rate you're going up and down !!

Lisa said...

I do go up and down stairs an awful lot Z especially with my mom living on ground level.I do alot for her. When she had a knee replacement I think I went up and down the stairs about 500 times in one week. That's one good thing about working from home.

FrogBurger said...

I personally like Halloween for kids and carving pumpkins. But as an adult, going to Halloween parties has never been my cup of tea. I'd rather stay home, carve a pumpkin and give chocolates to the kids.

And obviously I didn't celebrate Halloween as a kid so I have little emotional attachment to it.

Thersites said...

@ mustang
State militias kicked your Yankee loving butt for nary four years, Mustang. And they would have kicked Nazi butts as well, but your panties got in a wad and so you "nationalized" the process.

btw - Are your sure you don't want your mommy to chew your meat for you so that you can suck it out of her well-filtered teats?

Thersites said...

The militia was so inadequate to the needs of our constitution that the Posse Comitatus Act was required to protect local citizens.

lol!

from Wiki The Posse Comitatus Act is an often misunderstood and misquoted United States federal law (18 U.S.C. § 1385) passed on June 18, 1878, after the end of Reconstruction. Its intent (in concert with the Insurrection Act of 1807) was to limit the powers of local governments and law enforcement agencies from using federal military personnel to enforce the laws of the land. Contrary to popular belief, the Act does not prohibit members of the Army from exercising nominally state law enforcement, police, or peace officer powers that maintain "law and order"; it simply requires that any orders to do so must originate with the United States Constitution or Act of Congress.

Looks like the "adequacy" of the militias was never called into question. The adequacy of our civilian "leaders" on the other hand...
