Nothing New Under the Sun
Billy Shakespeare once said "There is nothing new under the sun." True it is.

So I really don't need to post new material; I've posted enough for to show you the correct viewpoint on whatever comes up. But even if the news is always the same, you like to have a fresh clean newspaper with breakfast every day.

So, click this button to get a fresh old post. No matter how old it is, it will probably be relevant to what's happening today.

Billy's Blog

Latest Blog Material Below
(Best viewed with a mind not clouded by the Kool-Aid)

Meanwhile, over in an Alternate Universe

Today's Second Amendment Message

What to do until the Blog arrives

The John Galt Society

It can be discouraging to look around at who's running the show these days and wonder "Where have all the grown-ups gone?"

Take heart. There are still some people who are not drinking the Kool-aid. Here's where to find them. I would suggest going down this list every day and printing off the most recent articles you haven't read to read over lunch.

Michelle Malkin
Michelle Malkin is a feisty conservative bastion. You loved her book "Unhinged" and you can read her columns here.
Ann Coulter

Ann posts her new column every Thursday, or you can browse her past columns.
George Will
What can you say? It's George Will. Read it.
Charles Krauthammer posts every Friday. Just a good, smart conservative columnist.
If you want someone who gets it just as right, but is easier to read, try Thomas Sowell, who just posts at random times.
Jonah Goldberg seldom disappoints.
David Limbaugh carries on the family tradition.

Jewish World Review has all these guys plus lots more good stuff.

Or you can go to radio show sites like
 Laura Ingraham's or Glenn Beck's or Rush Limbaugh's..

If you'd like you can study The Constitution while you wait.

Then there's always TownHall.com, NewsMax.com, The Drudge Report, FreeRepublic.com, World Net Daily, (which Medved calls World Nut Daily), News Busters, National Review Online, or The American Thinker.

For the Lighter Appetite

If you have to read the news, I recommend The Nose on Your Face, news so fake you'd swear it came from the Mainstream Media. HT to Sid for the link.
Or there's always The Onion. (For the benefit of you Obama Supporters, it's a spoof.)

Dave Barry's Column
Daryl Cagle's Index of Political Cartoons
About half of these cartoonists are liberal (Latin for wrong) but the art is usually good. (Fantastic, if you're used to the quality of art on this site.)
Another Cagle Index
Townhall Political Cartoons
In case you want cartoons that are well-drawn and don't make your jugular burst.

Or just follow the links above and to the right of this section (you can't have read all my archived articles already). If you have read all my articles (you need to get out more) go to my I'm Not Falling For It section.

Above all, try to stay calm. Eventually I may post something again.

The Litter-ature novel is here. I update it regularly--every time Famke Janssen tackles me and sticks her tongue in my ear.

On This Day in History

Oh, wait . . . that's from an alternate universe

And the blah-blah-blog continues . . .

What difference does it make?!!
Well, I guess Kissinger glasses don't necessarily equate to intelligence. Since Hillary Clinton had the courage to admit her inability to understand such a simple concept, I think she deserves a sincere answer.

Mrs. Clinton, the key to answering your question is in the very next statement that you made. "It is our job to figure out what happened and do everything we can to prevent it from ever happening again."

See, in order to prevent it from ever happening again, you have to find out what happened. You might use a different method of prevention for some guys just out for an innocent walk who decided to kill Americans than you would to prevent an organized terrorist organization from launching a planned attack.

Still not getting it? Okay, well, how about a cops analogy? Would you expect an accident investigator to say "I wonder if he was drunk or if the steering failed. Oh, well, at this point what difference does it make?"

Still not clear? Let's see . . . what about, what difference does it make if Bill Clinton is sleeping with me or with some intern, as long as he's getting some? Does that work for you?

Sheesh. Just 'tween us girls, I wonder if that crazy old bat has always been that stupid or if the concussion wrecked her brain. Now there's something that falls under the category heading of "Well, what difference does it make?"

You've seen the rest, read the best
My blog sucks. For a better view on the topic read my sister's view on it.

Long Shadows
If you didn't know who Hillary Clinton was before this, now you know. "What difference does it make?!!" (and you have to include the bitchy voice) pretty much defines the reprobate who would be our President in 2016.
Whenever you hear her slam anything her opponents say during the 2016 campaign just remember: What difference does it make? I'm going to be really disappointed if I don’t hear that clip after every single clip of her speaking during that campaign.

Holy clueless bitty, Batman.

Bank on it
Here's a pretty good rule of thumb: the person who's indignant in the conversation is almost always the person with the least right to be.

Obama and his little minions lied to us for weeks. For weeks they tried to hide the truth about Benghazi. Weeks? Good night! They are still doing it.

Then they have the cajones to say "I can't believe you would intimate that we misled the American public! I am SO offendended!"

You will never find more evil people on this entire planet. Nowhere.

Do I need to say it?
Here's my frustration with this: It's so blatant; so transparent. If you had the brains to figure it out you wouldn't need me telling you. And if you don't, nothing I can say will fix that.

Don't look Away!
Obama and his crew are vile. They are despicable. They are disgusting and reprehensible and evil. Your natural tendency is to just tune out.

But . . . conspiracy theorist phrase warning . . . that's exactly what they want you to do.

It's like one of those ubiquitous Gene Wilder/Willy Wonka pictures: "You don't like politics? No problem, I'll be happy to make the decisions about your life."

This is the nightmare we only got a preview of the last four years. This is the Obama that we've seen, but with "More flexibility." He was already completely unaccountable, he just isn't smart enough to know it. But now he's not even constrained by his own demented mind.

Don't Listen to Me!
I can't say enough bad things about Obama. I can't stress enough how evil he is and how dangerous he is for the country I love.

But I can say that, 'cause I'm nobody.

Obama is an evil, horrible, awful . . . not nice thing. It's fun to make uproarious fun of the waste of skin. It's entertaining. It's cathartic. I like it; it's absolutely true.

But it's not a winning strategy

Don't listen to me. Listen to Michael Medved. Michael Medved's method is better than Mark Levin's.

You can know he's evil, but don't tell anyone. Read Jennifer Rubin's blog and do what she says.

Read this article called Watch your Language.

Re-read Whoa, Friends, Hold the Regime Talk.

Inauguration (of the waste of skin)

Read this great article by Jonah Goldberg on good sense and gun control. I'm not going to waste any more time writing about it 'cause you're not going to anyway. Don't know why I bother . . .

I recall a TV show I once saw of a non-English speaking singer (I think she was from Hong Kong) performing a song in English. The announcer pointed out that this woman did not speak English, she was just phonetically delivering the sounds.

That's the impression I had through most of Obama's second inauguration speech. That's exactly what it was like—someone mouthing sounds that held no meaning to him. The delivery was even off. "We. Theeeeeee ppl." It sounded like the announcer on A Knight's Tale.

Just excruciating.

Krauthammer described it well: ”Not memorable — there’s not a line here that will ever be repeated."

Obama even voicing the words of the founding fathers is just profane. It's like performing a hip-hop version of the national anthem.

And no, there was no racism in that. White idiots listen to that jarring noise as much as anyone. I just thought of the absolute worst form of "music" that exists and paired it with something that should be performed with reverence. But, hey, it works. A half-black poser celebrity president and a rap metaphor. It works.

Lincoln dealt with healing a nation, FDR dealt with overcoming despair, JFK spoke of progress and improvement, Reagan affirmed the idea that the government exists for The People, not the other way around. Obama? Yeah, gays and the global warming hoax.

What. A. Putz.

Here's my theory
When I say that Obama is a putz I'm really, really tempted to say that he's not only a putz, he's an irrelevant putz. But then I have to chant the anthem of the conspiracy theorist: That's exactly what they want you to think!

Look at it through this lens: Why would he deliver such a comical inaugural address. Did he not realize that someone was taking video of it and it might get written down? Why would someone intentionally make such a fool of himself?

That on top of the fact that he's spent the last four years making himself a laughingstock. The man could screw up a two-car parade. He's astonishingly incompetent.

What if . . . just follow me here . . . what if this whole thing is a rope-a-dope? Nobody could really be as stupid as he seems. Nobody. It's not possible. We know that he's the most radical President we've ever elected.

Maybe this whole thing is an act to lull us into complacency to implement a really radical left-wing agenda of socialized medicine, gun control, economic devastation . . .

It's been awhile and you may have forgotten (about 1998), so I'll give you the metaphor again. I think it was a Richard Dreyfuss movie, he was watching someone and didn't want to be discovered. The person looked around, so he picked his noise. The idea is that no one want to see something that disgusting, so they look away and that way they don't recognize you or remember you.

So don't be fooled. Don't look away because it's just too ghastly to behold. That's exactly what they want you to do.

Obama's Make-believe World

Child Abuse
Let me quote a very insightful blog post that I read last month . . .
This just in!
Barack Obama is a steaming pile of putrid excrement.

Can you imagine—can you freaking imagine—if Mitt Romney or any Republican were to try to use the death of school children to further his political agenda?!

It's just beyond despicable.

I just . . . wow . . . how do you even . . . wow . . . and it gets worse.

Are you not seeing this, people?!!

How drunk on the Kool-Aid do you have to be to not be vomiting right now?

This is the old Clinton trick—it's got to be the Clinton trick. Do something so heinous that anyone who calls you on it will look ridiculous.

Forgive me, please, forgive me for invoking the H-word here . . . but how do you not? The man is clearly stealing a page from Hitler's playbook.

More of the same kinds of examples can be found here.

Obama (pardon my language) isn't the first politician since Hitler to do that. It's just more illustration of how absolutely unaccountable he is for his actions. I will say it again: There is absolutely nothing that Obama can do that is heinous enough to make his supporters second guess their stupidity in falling for him. Nothing.

The Debt Ceiling

The Spendaholic

The Seamless Segue . . .

. . . into Obama's Gun Grab

And Finally . . .

Boring observations
Marco Rubio said that it's hard to negotiate with the Democrats when they won't even be honest about what they want. Where have you heard that before?

Yep. It's the same old deal. It's a pretty safe bet that whatever they're talking about –women's rights, economic policy, race, poverty, global climate whatever they're calling it this week—is not what they're after. Money and power. That's all they care about. Anything they are talking about is just a pawn to be sacrificed for that.

And . . .

Susan rice was never going to get the nomination. I was actually kind of embarrassed when I figured that out. I was all proud of myself for understanding that she never submitted her resignation –that that whole episode was a ruse. But I didn't take it to the next step. She was never a candidate for the position; she was just convenient bait to throw out so the Obama regime could take a shot at Republicans. The whole debacle was just a scheme to use as a weapon against people whose lips aren't surgically attached to the dictator's backside.

Just goes to show you how tricky it is for non-evil people to deal with evil people.

I'm puzzled, too
I'm like you. I can't understand why I'm such a broke nobody when I've got it all so figured out.

The other day (probably two weeks ago when this topic mattered) Rush Limbaugh was talking about the fiscal cliff deal. Concerning the Republicans in Congress and Obama, he said "After all this time they still don't know what they're dealing with."

Very good way to phrase it. Very good. But who have you been hearing express that sentiment since about 1992? C'est moi.

Rush also pointed out that what The Amateur accomplished was to get the Republicans to break their pledge. Yep

Remember Bush 41? Read my lips?

I'm as bored as you are with the topic. We're done.

Not so fast!
Maybe we're not quite that done with the topic.

Confession? I still let insignificant twerps drive me crazy. Yes, I'm talking about Barack Hussein Obama, the child playing in the attic trying to wear Daddy's suit.

Maybe he doesn't drive me as crazy as the fact that there is a single, non-institutionalized, sober human being in the entire country that believes any word that falls out of that phony's mouth.

Voici the phrases that make my jugular pop out of my neck:

"Balanced approach"

"Pay their fair share"

If you have a brain, you share my frustration. If you can hear the Mastermind of Benghazi utter those words without breaking something, I can't help you. Dammit, Jim, I'm a doctor, not a hypnotist!

So I will defer to more eloquent observers like Jonah Goldberg and this great article called Winning Ugly: Obama and the Fiscal Cliff.

The president seems to think that if he calls class warfare "math," it's suddenly not class warfare. If I plan to build an orbital Death Star for $10 trillion and then think better of it, I've cut $10 trillion, according to Obama's math.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go break something.

On to Obama's Gun Control

Anybody Remember a Place Called Benghazi?
My apologies to Juan Williams, I'm not forgetting about this. "Oh, come on, this was no big deal. It's ancient history." Gone. Forgotten.

Just bizarre watching the zombies on the left. It's like we're making a big deal about someone who rolled through a stop sign. This from the people who gleefully took down a US President over six rogues jimmying the lock on an office door.

I came across this this earlier commentary by Rush Limbaugh on Obama's lies on Libya.

And finally . . .

The economy is tanking!
During the campaign gas got up to nearly $4.00/gallon. You remember during the debates Obama claimed that gas prices were high because the economy was doing well under him.

Yesterday I filled up my tank for 2.90/gallon. I wonder what Obama's take is on that?

You could have . . .
Over the holidays while visiting family we played a game called Killer Bunnies . . . or something. You have bunny cards that you lay out in front of you and you try to get carrots and . . . yeah, I didn't really get it either. But one of the deals is that people can draw cards that let them take your bunnies. So someone got one of my bunnies and looked at the card and said "Oh, you could've done . . . " such and such. And then she did.

I didn't know.

I didn't know that the card allowed me to gain an advantage over the other players. The gal that took it from me thought I was pretty dumb for having the chance to get ahead and not taking it.

Trust me, this was brilliant when I thought it up a week ago. Now it's making no sense to me either.

Here's the point. I could have gained an advantage, but I didn't know. I was dumb for not taking advantage. I didn't know how the game was played.

That's how the democrats feel about Republicans and elections. They are registering dead voters and people who don't exist and counting votes for themselves that were cast for the other side. They think that Republicans are pretty stupid for not grabbing those advantages like they are.

One time at work we brought in some people from the software company that makes our manufacturing database. They spent three days training us in all the things that the software would do. They said that they thought they had come up with all the fields that we'd ever need to keep track of our raw materials and manufacturing costs and where things are in the system. But they were doing this training in . . . I can't remember, some country in Trashcanistan, and one guy said "Where do we enter the bribes?"

After the training I was talking with a co-worker and we were laughing about it. He said, "You know, it happens everywhere, but the difference is that in the United States everyone understands that it's wrong."

I didn't want to believe the guy. I didn't want to think that it even happens here, and I kinda' wrote it off to the fact that he grew up in Louisiana. That's where you go if you want to leave the United States for a weekend. It does happen there.

But his point was valid. In other places corruption and taking advantage and not playing fair is just the way it's done. It's not wrong, it's just the way it's done. Just like my bunny card, if you can get an advantage over someone else, why wouldn't you?

But as much as I hate to acknowledge it, it's not limited to places outside the United States. Democrats routinely cheat and engage in graft and corruption and have absolutely no compunction about doing it. To them it's not wrong—to them there is no right or wrong. It's just the way to win.

If you have any doubt that they are cheating listen to how much they scream about "playing fair" and remember the inviolable rule about evil people—they are always guilty of whatever they are accusing someone of.

It Takes a Thief
When I was a kid there used to be a TV show called "It Takes a Thief." I don't remember ever watching it, but I was always intrigued by the title. The idea is that it takes a thief to catch a thief, because he knows how a thief thinks.

Anyway . . . that's why Republicans are constantly getting outfoxed by democrats. They just don't think like that.

Happy New Year
