Monday Open Thread – November 26th

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

    Morning, all. Super crispy bacon is the order of the day.
    “Gun Control: Here’s how it will be accomplished”.
    Frog-Water theory of incrementalism. Interesting take on it.

      I have seen the Progressive commercials and I was creeped out the first time I saw it. Mrs. Tex saw it yesterday for the first time and just gave me that look. :shock:

      I remember when an intelligent old man told me after it became law we must click it or ticket that this country was going to hell in a hand basket and it was all downhill from here. I didn’t much like the law and thought government was treating me like a child, but hey it was just another vehicle law, so surely he was getting just a bit overexcited. Since that time I have steadily watched it all go downhill.
      One of the other things I remember him saying was after Obama’s famous DNC speech, “God help us if that man ever runs for President, Satan will throw a party in hell.”
      He passed away at 95 two years before Obama was elected President, almost to the day.

    • cajunkelly says:

      I’ve been raging about this “Progressive” initiated movement for over a year.

      WHY would people subject themselves to this?

      Oh, and now you can “try before you buy”. Uh huh, and just *what* is done with this information they have gathered on you if you decide (or don’t qualify because of what this device discovered about your driving habits) not to buy?

      Freaking sheeple. :evil:

      • texan59 says:

        “Freaking sheeple” – Bingo!

        These are the same people who, in a few years, you will be able to tell them they’re going to a barbecue and they’ll shuffle on to their own demise.

    Mornin’ kids! Happy Monday!! “Shut Up, Grandpa”

    • texan59 says:

      Mornin’ Wee. I’mmmmmm back. ;)

      I read and re-read this one and I think my “pressure” went up about 40 points. I have seen this time after time the last several years, in person and in the media and I just almost start shaking.

    • cajunkelly says:

      Uh uh, I know of one Grandpa that needs to shut up and go AWAY, and he ain’t a Republican.

      Dirty Harry

    • texan59 says:

      For those out there who thought the Wal-Mart protests were unsuccessful, do not despair. The SEIU and all the other union goons are not done. They have four years to pound and pound someone like this into submission. They are emboldened and will not be encumbered by the administration in any way, shape or form. It ain’t gonna be pretty.

      • cajunkelly says:

        And the effin sheeple employees think these unions are lookin out for them.

        BULL BUTTER!

        These unions see huge dollar signs in the form of unions dues. Via these union dues they see security for their HUGE saleried positions.

        I live in a right-to-work state. There was a time I was in a union, then I put 2 and 2 together and came up with 8, for the union honchos, and got OUT.

        • texan59 says:

          While I don’t have definitive proof, the numbers I see are that on average, a union gets about $1k/yr for every union member. So let’s say that a union gets 1,000 W-M ee’s. That’s $1m/yr. If they were to get 50,000 ee’s, they’re now up to $50m/year, just in dues. That’s only 2.5% of the W-M ee’s. Any questions on why the union goons are going after them. :evil:

          • cajunkelly says:

            Again, these effin sheeple need to do their research before they agree to fatten the union thugs’ calf. Not sure this is true of all unions and/or states, but the one *I* was in was required….read that MANDATED to represent the employee (in an open shop) re a grievance regardless of whether or not that employee was a dues paying union member or not.

            Now given that FACT, I’d have been STUPID to continue handing over dues money to them every week.

            In addition, these unions make it damn near impossible to get out of their union once you join.

            Example: you can only unjoin on your anniversary date, and that notice must be received by them (damn well better send it certified/return receipt) no less than ten days, but not more than 30 days from your anniversary date.

    • texan59 says:

      Anyone out there want to tell me that our side knows how to deliver a message yet? I am preparing for this to be my last decent Christmas for a long time. Next week, the d’s will talk of ruining the new year and inauguration. In January, they will talk about how we will ruin Valentine’s Day. In Feb., talk will be how we will ruin Spring Break for the chirrens. They won’t let up. :evil:

    If you cant handle the heat get out of the kitchen. elder republicans need to step aside from leadership positions in the party and turn the reigns over with dignity to the youngbloods for anything to get done.

    • canadacan says:

      That was a great article I read it earlier It works for Texas ,works for Georgia. Are good chance to watch the free enterprise system at work

    • michellc says:

      My daughter was telling me about a couple she met that was from Illinois who told her they moved here because land and property taxes were cheaper but we had crazy gun laws and our politicians talk too much about God, guns and against abortion, so they hoped more of their friends would move here to make the state more blue.
      She asked them if they were stupid? We have lower property costs, lower property taxes because we’re conservative. We like God, guns and we hate abortion. So if you don’t want to adapt to our way of life then take your liberal bs back to Illinois where you can have higher property costs, higher property taxes and higher unemployment and you can have politicians who talk about abortion rights instead of God and guns.

      I’ve heard stuff like this from liberals before, usually about Texas, moving to Texas because of jobs and no income tax but wanting to bring their stupid liberal ideas that caused their state to have fewer jobs, high income tax, property tax, etc. to their new state.
      As the joke says you can’t fix stupid.

    A response to Mark Steyn’s latest column:

    Cirilo Perera · Top Commenter

    Take it from me, a refugee from one of the _opera buffa_ failed states of Latin America: this U. S. A., this beautiful, wonderful country–distinguished by its rule of law, responsible liberty, individual opportunity, and seriousness of purpose–that I have loved so much is rapidly becoming indistinguishable from the corrupt, politically immature, feckless banana republics to our south. I am saddened beyond my powers of expression.

  9. ctdar says:

    SCOTUS kicks obamacare challenge back to fourth circuit court of appeals due to
    one of the Plaintiffs, Liberty University, charge that Congress over stepped its power in setting the rules. I particularly like the last sentance of article where Obama adminsitration admits all the information wasn’t available when law was passed….

    • Sharon says:

      More great news about the lack of intellectual comprehension in Washington–apparently they truly didn’t expect that any/many of the states would actually choose to NOT foot the bill and the chaos for setting up state systems to jam obamacare down everyone’s throats. From Human Events:

      Have a good day.

      God bless the United States!

      God is our hope now.
