I may not agree with your opinion, but I will defend to the death my right to ridicule it.

Meanwhile, over in an Alternate Universe

Forever Wednesday

Billy Shakespeare once said "There is nothing new under the sun." True it is.

I really don't need to post new material every Wednesday; I've posted enough 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.

Clicking the "Billy's Blog" button to the left will deliver a fresh old post right to your screen. No matter how old it is, it will probably be relevant to what's happening today.

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 Rosario Dawson tackles me and sticks her tongue in my ear.

Obama and Isis

This is kind of a follow-up to Obama being the Science Officer from the movie Alien like I talked about.

A Funny Lampoon
There was a funny piece in that satirical publication The Onion saying that John Kerry said that at least the Islamists had justification for the attacks on Charlie Hebdo.

Hang on. Lemme check . . . .

Nope. He really did say that. That's not so funny.

What an idiot. What a complete incompetent moronic idiot.

Okay, maybe you say "Wait a minute, Frank, the guy just misspoke and corrected himself right away." He said "They had justification. Oh, wait, I should say they had rationale."

That's correcting? That's like saying "Well, I said Albany, but I meant Syracuse." You shouldn't be anywhere in New York state at all. You should be talking about San Freaking Diego and you're wandering around in New York.

The guy wasn't "justified" in killing his wife, but you can see his "rationale." She did, after all, leave the lid off the sugar bowl.

What a freaking idiot. Actually, he is the perfect Secretary of State to represent this administration.

Spoiler Alert
The movie Alien came out in, what, 1977? What I'm about to talk about is a total spoiler for the movie. So, I'm serious, don't read this if you haven't seen the movie and you plan to see it.

Or if you're like me and you'll forget everything I'm going to say by the time you do see it.

Nothing torques me off like someone ruining a movie for me with a spoiler.

A Brilliant Parallel
I'm serious, if you don't want the plot of Alien ruined for you go watch it right this second and come back.

In the movie Alien a crew on a space freighter ends up on a planet way out in space and a group goes to inspect a wrecked ship. The group comes back with an alien attached to one of the astronauts.

Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) is hesitant to let them in the ship because she doesn't know what the alien is attached to the guy's face. The Science Officer opens the airlock door and lets them in. Ripley gets mad at him, but he says "He probably would have died if I hadn't let him in." Fair enough.

The guy lays on a table in sick bay and the Science Officer can't figure out how to get the thing detached. Fair enough. It's a hard deal.

Then the creature falls off by itself and the guy is fine. He's joking and laughing and eating . . . until an alien pops out of his chest.

The alien is loose on the ship killing crew members, but the science officer can't figure out how to stop it. Ripley comes up with a plan and they are hunting it down and trying to kill it. She asks the Science Officer what he has figured out about its vulnerabilities. He says he's still "collating data."

Okay. Well, fair enough . . . I guess. It's a tough problem. Just seems like he's not getting much done. And his reasons are seeming more lame all the time.

Ripley goes to the main computer to see if she can get some help. She's locked out of some of the information. So she uses a bypass code and gets in. She finds out that the Science Officer has orders to bring back the alien for study. All other considerations are secondary. Then, just to make sure we get the point, the computer says (in bright green letters on a back screen like they were going to have in the future back in 1977) "CREW IS EXPENDABLE."

All of a sudden everything the science officer has done makes sense, from opening the airlock in the first place to his lame excuses about "collating data."

I watched that movie 30 years ago. A few weeks ago I watched it again with my son. I had forgotten most of the plot. I just remembered that it had been a great movie to freak out to.

A couple of days after I watched the movie Barack Hussein Obama (Protector of All that is Good in the Universe and Most Holy and Wise Leader and Savior of all Mankind) made his announcement about the Keystone XL Pipeline. He said he wasn't going to do it.

Nobody was surprised. He never considered it for a second. He just said he would think about it then went golfing until he figured enough time had gone by to announce that nothing that changed.

The thing is, the "reason" he gave made absolutely no sense whatsoever. None. It was really really lame.

"Ping!" In my mind I heard "Still collating data."

Barack Obama is the Science Officer. The crew is expendable; he has his agenda and he'll make a half-hearted effort at explaining some reason he's not doing what needs to be done. Typically it involves some recycling of the phrase "Who we are as Americans." But he is, after all, speaking to inferior beings who don't really matter and so he's just pretending and the reasons don't have to make sense.

Watch the movie. Listen to the speech. It's a freaking brilliant analogy . . . if I do say so myself.

Even better than the Keystone pipeline is ISIS. He is literally on their side. Iran doesn't want a Sunni leadership over there and he, for some reason, does Iran's bidding. It's not in his agenda to take out ISIS. It probably really irritates him that he has to pretend to be trying to.

But that lens brings it into focus. "Don't worry about them, they're the JV team. We know where they are but we don't attack them. We don't have a strategy. They're contained. Our strategy is working . . . " It's the science officer 'collating data' while the Alien is killing our crew.

Saying the agenda of the President of the United States is aligned with that of a terrorist organization sounds pretty radical. But it's not just invective. It really is that way. A lot more intelligent guys than me have done a lot better analyses of it. They've made a pretty solid case for the idea that he would prefer to have ISIS strong than gone. If you care about it you've already studied those. My role is just to point out: Barack Obama is the Science Officer from the movie "Alien."

Then read this article by Thomas Sowell explaining how to translate the crap you hear politicians say.

Hillary's Accomplishments
Then read this article helping Hillary explain her accomplishments and then this article, too.


You can't get more idiotic than Bernie Sanders. You just can't.

Wait, maybe college students. They are at least as stupid as Bernie Sanders. I don't even have the energy to comment on the poor little picked on Mizzou darlings. Wow. Complete freaking idiots.

Read this. I think this is the guy who said "This is the generation that will destroy America."

Then read this article saying maybe we'll respect you if you check yourself."

Widows and orphans

Wow. This really infuriates me. It shouldn't. I shouldn't even pay attention to what some moron celebrity says.

Just maddening how completely unfounded what he says is. Just absolutely ridiculous. It's like . . . I'm struggling to think of an analogy as stupid as his real-life statements. It just makes no sense.

It's like we're getting run down by a Sherman tank and he's ridiculing us for being afraid of horse-drawn carriages.

Okay, lame analogy, but whenever you're thinking about Barack Obama you just get stuck in lame.

He makes no secret of how he despises 50% of the people who make up the country he was elected President of.

Classic straw man. Textbook.

Isn't it funny that all the things that Obama tells me are my American values support his anti-American agenda?
