Today's Reading Assignment: No Slackers Edition

>> March 5, 2010

There's a post over at The Classic Liberal where he writes about the very real possibility of a global economic collapse. That possibility should give every American and all citizen's of the world reason to question the so-called good intentions of their respective governments.

I'm still reeling from the implications of it.

Given the gloom and doom nature of the post, I jokingly remarked at how much fun TheCL would be at a party, but if he and the MIT and LSE authors of the original article quoted here are correct, then there is mighty struggle ahead. I dare say apocalyptic even.

I bring this up to warn you, and to push the point home yet again that free people must hold their elected officials accountable. We can no longer brush aside any unjust, misuse of power, even if it is used against a group who we dislike. Abuse of power should never be ignored, especially to the least of us. Left to it's own devices, one day the cold boot of tyranny will kick down even a Governor's door.

The articles explain, in much greater detail than I can begin to fully comprehend, that power can be wielded against us not only with a gun but with the Treasury's printing presses and secret backroom deals by the elitists in their little cocoons, shielded from the society they despise as only despots can.

As TheCL rightly said, our country needs leaders. It needs YOU to be a leader. America needs you to wake up. She desperately needs us all.

I said in an earlier post that these politicians will not go quietly. I think the past few months of the Health Care fiasco has proved me right on that end.

We've got a long battle ahead. Dig in, keep reading, calling your legislators, reminding them that they work for the people, encouraging them to do what is right for our nation:

Stop deficit spending.
Stop government corruption.
Lame Duck the Obamachine until we can get some real conservatives back in office, only then will meaningful change be possible.

And remember to Pray. Pray for our leaders that they would do what is best for the country. Pray for them to follow God's will.

Now, as the saying goes; Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Go read TheCL's article. Then go read the other two he refers to here and here.
Prepare to be sobered up.


New Old Flag

My latest flag acquisition. You wouldn't know it, but I like flags. I have a small collection. This First Naval Jack replica happens to be my new favorite. It was flown over the Navy Memorial last year. Schweet!


There's a Rumor...

circulating that I have naked Lucy Pinder pics on this site. Well. I don't. There are no naked Lucy Pinder pics on this blog. Don't get me wrong, if there were, I certainly wouldn't complain, but seeing as how there are no naked Lucy Pinder pictures here then, I really must be honest about it.

I only post this today to help wash your mind out from that nasty little Karl Rove spell I had yesterday. Sorry about that. I don't know what I was thinking.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.

UPDATE: I must be losing it. I totally forgot to mention The Other McCain's Rule 5 in this post. Ignorance is bliss, but not when it costs your blog hits. As penance, I have added more pictures of Lucy Pinder after the jump. She just might be close to naked in a couple of those...

UPDATE II: WOW! Maybe there is something to this Rule 5 business. The Robot issues a Hearty Howdy to all the visitors from The Other McCain. Think I'll just go look for some more Lucy Pinder pics now...



So I Was Thinking About It...

>> March 4, 2010

and so I did it.

I made Facebook and Twitter pages for The Bot.  Gotta get with the times you know? The 20th century?

Hey, and good news!  Karl Rove is following me! I've got like a total of twelve tweets and Karl Rove is following me. He knows intellect when he sees it. Why he's following those other 96,000 idiots, I can't explain.

Anyhoo, now I'm trying to find widgets to link back to those respective pages. What a pain in the a$$ to find one that goes with my delicate sensibilities.

"Honey, does this Twitter button make my blog look fat?"

"No dear."

Of course, that's not really what she was thinking. What she was thinking was:


She couldn't have had a thought. She's the imaginary girl that lives in my head. So there's that too I've got to deal with.

What? Oh. Sorry,
I left the toilet seat up.

My bad.

So, follow the blog on Twitter and Facebook.

You'll be glad you did.

UPDATE: Oh. suuuure it's a coincidence. The Trog's trying to horn in on my post. - Yea, like hey dude. I was here first. Everybody just jump on the Karl Rove party train why don't you.

UPDATE II: Wyblog has a new acronym he'd like to share with us and links the bot simultaneously. That's a neat trick! Wait. Did he just call me a fraudulent jerk?


Hurry! Hurry! Everything Must Go! Closeout Sale!

Just What Isn't For Sale In This Administration?

Obama Now Selling Judgeships for Health Care Votes? | The Weekly Standard 

Louisiana, Nevada, Nebraska, and now we're selling votes for... Judges.


No, not two... ONE. 1. Singular.


You'd better get in now, while the prices are still low!

Once those votes are gone, they're gone!

See, The Washington Standard got it a bit wrong I think. They said that Obama may have sold the Judgeship for a vote. But I think it was the other way around. Obama sold the vote. He sold more than one vote, and those sales will cost us all dearly.


If you haven't made your deal yet, time is r-r-r-running out!

Call the 24 hour hotline on your screen now and make us an offer! Hey. Who knows?  I hear the First Amendment is going for the price of a song!

As long as you don't sing.

Stop Reconciliation of Health Care Reform

>> March 3, 2010

This morning, one of my associates from work pointed me to the American Center for Law and Justice. Based in Washington D.C., it is a Christian advocacy group consisting of lawyers and researchers working to ensure our First Amendment rights are upheld. According to their website, it is

an organization dedicated to the defense of constitutional liberties secured by law. 
[Through] work in the courts and the legislative arena, the ACLJ is dedicated to protecting your religious and constitutional freedoms.
My kind of organization.

Right now, the ACLJ is inviting all concerned citizens to sign a petition to stop the reconciliation tactic and start over on Health Care. If you are so inclined, you can sign it here.

Pass it on as well.

That is all.


Useful Tools...

Added to the Bot's Useful Links section today is 100 Search Engines For Scholars. It is based at Online Found at The Presurfer, I know this is going to come in handy in the future.


You Gotta See This...

The Thinker has found a candidate for best video of the year.....


Health Care Nuclear Option = 2010 Socialist Democrat Hiroshima

>> March 2, 2010

I just saw today that Opus #6  at MAinfo has done a fine job rounding up the Senators and Congress-critters into one list. A *ahem* SociaList, if you will, of their positions on reconciling the Health Care Reform bill.

This has got to stop. Reconciliation is a tactic that has been used in the past for budget items. Never for enormous sweeping social programs like this.

So, Here's what to do. Go visit MAinfo. Read the list. Find your Senate and Congress critters. Send them faxes using the nice Citizens In Action link provided (Note: there is also a link to a Progressive Change Committee site asking you to sign a petition. That is just to give you some background on the leftist propaganda machine we are battling.)

I would post the whole thing here, but hey, Opus #6 did the work so, she deserves the credit.
Be sure to thank her for that hard work while you're there.

It looks like Lance "The Troglopundit" is having another Automotivator contest with the latest "Obama Death Stare" screen cap. I may be a bit late to the party, (Life does intrude from time to time.) but, I haven't come empty handed.

So, in a shameless act of self promotion I submit the Robot's entry into this little soirée...

Now, go forth to proclaim the indestructibility of a fictional, pixelated, riveted, tin can.
Nothing can stop me now! Mwahahahaha. 

UPDATE: The Troglopundit understands. Resistance is futile. Thanks for the link Sir Lance.
