You can't be too cynical No matter how cynical you are, you're
not nearly cynical enough!

Looking for the San Antonio Tea Party? Just hit that link. This is no longer The San Antonio Tea Party's home (it was once, and then it wasn't,
and then once again it was, and now once again it's not). This is now just the blog of little old me. Robin Juhl,
proprietor (Webmaster@TheyThinkYouAreStupid.com). That's ALL. I'm no longer on the board of SATP and have no say in the policy thereof. But God
The Congress allocates the money not the President. He just spends what they give him. In just two years, the
111th Congress took out a loan in your name and borrowed $10,429.64.
That's on top of what they'd
already borrowed in your name.
You are now on the hook for $44,886.57. So is every one of your loved ones
and that bum on the street corner. You may be certain that the bum will not be paying his share, so you'll be paying
part of his, too.
The linked article notes that Nancy Pelosi promised:
"After years of historic deficits,
this 110th Congress will commit itself to a higher standard: Pay as you go, no new deficit spending,” she said in
an address from the speaker’s podium. “Our new America will provide unlimited opportunity for future generations,
not burden them with mountains of debt."
Yeah, right. Sound familiar? You
just heard the same thing from those we just elected.
One of the first things the new Congress will be pressured to
do is raise the debt ceiling. I say "NO!" The longer the madness goes on, the harder it is to stop because
stopping it will be ever more painful.
Allow me to restate that number. Over the last two months, the eighth largest army in the world – more men under arms than Iran; more than France and Germany combined – deployed to the woods of a single American
state to help keep the deer menace at bay.
But that pales in comparison to the 750,000 who are in the woods of Pennsylvania this week. Michigan’s 700,000 hunters have now returned home. Toss in a quarter million hunters in West Virginia, and it is literally the case that the hunters of those four states alone would comprise the largest army in the world.
Americans enjoy the right of being armed. That's one way that some of us have remained as citizens, not subjects.
"Oh, but there are no more wild Indians, and such! The need for guns is gone!" the lily-livered liberal
gun-grabbers say. Do not believe their BULL!
Doesn't matter if you're a victim of rape. Doesn't matter. If you have a pacemaker--ACHTUNG!--you
will get your boobs "felt up." Or else . . .
"I can't go through because I have the equivalent of a pacemaker in me," she said.
said because of the device in her body, she was led to a female TSA employee and three Austin police officers. She says she
was told she was going to be patted down.
"I turned to the police officer and said, 'I have given no due cause
to give up my constitutional rights. You can wand me,'" and they said, 'No, you have to do this,'"
Hirschkind agreed to the pat down, but on one condition.
"I told them, 'No, I'm not going
to have my breasts felt,' and she said, 'Yes, you are,'" said Hirschkind.
When Hirschkind refused,
she says that "the police actually pushed me to the floor, (and) handcuffed me. I was crying by then. They drug me
25 yards across the floor in front of the whole security."
You think you have rights!?! HAH!
You have only the "rights" that those in charge there at the time decide you have.
An ABIA spokesman
says it is TSA policy that anyone activating a security alarm has two options. One is to opt out and not fly, and the other
option is to subject themselves to an enhanced pat down. Hirschkind refused both and was arrested.
doesn't match my recollection of loudly stated TSA policy . . . Ah, HERE IT IS:
THE HIDDEN DEFICIT If corporate accountants used government rules for their financial statements, they'd be jailed. That's why
we rarely see the real number of the federal deficit-a terrifying $2.1 trillion last year.
you glad the liberals have been in charge? We have been so lucky!
Senator (Thank God He Is NOT President) Kerry Lies Again!
They just HAD to rush the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) through the Senate. Why? Because given time,
people would have found out how badly Obama sold us out in time to stop it!
Sen. John Kerry, a Massachusetts Democrat who has been leading the fight for
ratification, said during floor debate that the treaty's preamble is "a component of the treaty that has no legal,
binding impact whatsoever."
Moscow apparently has a different view of the preamble.
main Russian government information agency, reported last week: "The treaty will have a legally binding provision on
the link between strategic offensive and defensive weapons and will affirm the increasing importance of this link amid the
reduction of strategic offensive weapons."
Several Republican-authored amendments to the treaty that sought to
alter the preamble were voted down, based in part on assertions that the preamble had no legal standing.
next time you're buying ketchup & such, remember that Sen. Kerry is married to Teresa HEINZ Kerry....
Global warming, the heating of the atmosphere by increased amounts of industrial gases, is now accepted as a reality
by the international community. Average temperatures in Britain were nearly 0.6Â°C higher in the Nineties than
in 1960-90, and it is estimated that they will increase by 0.2C every decade over the coming century. Eight of the 10 hottest
years on record occurred in the Nineties.
However, the warming is so far manifesting itself more in winters which are
less cold than in much hotter summers. According to Dr David Viner, a senior research scientist at the climatic research
unit (CRU) of the University of East Anglia,within a few years winter snowfall will become "a very rare and exciting
"Children just aren't going to know what snow is," he said.
[Note that they quote a
guy from East Anglia...famous for the "Hide the Decline" emails....]
Yep-- we should certainly
destroy our economy to reduce Greenhouse emissions! Why those poor British children, roasting in the sun by Christmas
Swathes of Britain skidded to a halt today as the big freeze returned - grounding flights, closing rail links and leaving
traffic at a standstill.
And tonight the nation was braced for another 10in of snow and yet more sub-zero temperatures
- with no let-up in the bitterly cold weather for at least a month, forecasters have warned.
The Arctic conditions are
set to last through the Christmas and New Year bank holidays and beyond and as temperatures plummeted to -10c (14f) the Met
Office said this December was ‘almost certain’ to become the coldest since records began in 1910.
Showed this to Cathy, my sister, Miss Lynne, and Miss Erika. They found it at funny and as touching as I did.
Even Zach laughed out loud when I showed it to him. Watch, and ponder the miracle of Christmas with a smile!
If any two adults who love each other and want to form a family should be able to get married, why not any number of people? There can be advantages for children. The chance of all adults in a group marriage
of ten people all dying at once are slim. No orphans!
Whey not a combination of the above? Why can't adult children all marry each other and their parents?
where I'm going with this: Think of the tax implications! No death tax! It'd drive Democrats over
the cliff. It'd be like President Sarah Palin leading the prayer at the National Cathedral for the state wedding
of Secretary of State Rush Limbaugh and Supreme Court Justice Ann Coulter. Their heads would explode.
Some of this is double, counted, from when both Hutchison & Rodriquez request something, etc. Together, they requested
$2.4M for San Antonio's bus system, for instance. Why federal money should be used on San Antonio buses, I don't
know (beyond the obivious "Gimme, gimme, gimme, while someone else pays!" motive).
OK, so Rodriguez lost
the election, and he's like a tenant getting evicted--determined to take anything of value he can, no matter the damage
it causes. That's to be expected of his sort (Democrats).
But the senators? Cornyn is bad, but Hutchison
must be out of her mind! Who can we find to run against her in the primary?
This afternoon, Hugh had on Senator Orin Hatch, to talk about "The Deal" and other issues. Lord, I should not get so angry when I'm driving! But
Senator Hatch just DOES NOT "get it." He defended "The Deal" and then said
I tell you, what I’m telling you is I’ve been here long enough to know how this Congress works.
I’ve been here for all these years without a fiscal conservative majority. And I’ve got to tell you, if we allowed
that to happen, we’ll never get these tax rates done. And we will not win on this 87% or 88% of this battle that I
think we’re going to win. And we can’t let the desire for protection be the enemy of the good here. [Emphasis
Defending and tolerating the [this is] "How this Congress works" attitude, with
the old-bull, go-along-to-get-along and let's-make-a-deal shenanigans is NOT going to solve our problems. Delay
them? Maybe. Make them worse in the long run? Definitely! He just doesn't get that. He wants
too make deals, play nice, and not stand up.
Sorry--but Senator "34 years" Hatch may need replacing.
For now, Voyager 1 is 17.4 billion kilometers (10.8 billion miles) from
the Sun in "an area where the velocity of the hot ionized gas, or plasma, emanating directly outward from the sun has
slowed to zero," the space agency said.
"Scientists suspect the solar wind has been turned sideways by
the pressure from the interstellar wind in the region between stars."
NASA noticed that the solar wind's
outward speed had slowed to zero back in June, but wanted to look at readings from Voyager 1 over the next four months to
Let's just hope it doesn't drop into a passing wormhole, get fixed up by
aliens, call itself "Vee-ger," and then come roaring back to threaten us all.
Can the government tell you to get a haircut, hippie?

Haircuts are economic activity. So is eating out once a week. What about buying a new car--from
"Government Motors," of course? (Can't remember who said that one, Randy Barnett or Instapundit, maybe?) Hey, owning or renting a minimum number of square feet per family member involves the economy. And broccoli! The poor broccoli growers need business too! Besides, it's good for you.
Damned Death Traps! But they produce donors for organ transplants (for which doctors get paid). You have to ride
a motorbike to work at least once a week, Bubba! Cold? Too bad!
Where does it end? When we throw these bastards out, and clean up the judiciary.
Melt the fat in the pan, and add the flour; when it
has cooked a few minutes, add the milk, dissolved in the beef stock, or water. Stir the batter in slowly to prevent lumping,
and then add the beef. Cook a few minutes, add the parsley, and serve on toast.
If the beef is very salty, it should
be scalded before cooking.
My old friend Randy sent me this video from the helmet camera of a guy climbing to the very tippy-top of one of those tall-tall
radio towers. 1,768 feet -- higher than the Sears Tower. Holey Schamoley! (The animation at the beginning
is just the credits.)
Wow. I was going to post a note on the nannys who want to regulate EVERYthing kids eat. They even plan to outlaw school bake sales...no cookies for you, kid! I'd even picked out the two perfect
pictures, of the chief nannies--the surgeon general and the first lady:
And then there's that graph that shows how much deeper the deficits are under Obama than they were under Bush,
et al. Been looking for an update to that. Found it this morning. Of course, it was Van Helsing who posted it:
Why not just go over to Moonbattery and see all the other stuff he's posted. He's on a real tear right now. That's why I hate him....
Developers of the controversial Park51 Islamic community center and mosque located two blocks from ground
zero earlier this month applied for roughly $5 million in federal grant money set aside for the redevelopment of lower Manhattan
after the attacks of September 11, according to two sources with direct knowledge of the matter.
OOPS! That was the debt in 2009, when it was "just" $11 Trillion. The debt today is $13.8T
and rising fast. So, in that last picture, they're just about to finish SIX ROWS on top!
That makes that pile just short of 100 feet high.
Last night, Kevin Wall on KTSA was discussing the choice of raising
the debt ceiling in February, or "shutting down the government." Tough choice!
But that pile of debt
just keeps getting bigger if we raise the debt ceiling.
We must stop deficit spending NOW. It will hurt.
A lot. But like with cancer, every day you wait means it will hurt you more when you finally do act. We are already
