Due to many problems with "Blogger" and this particular blog, I have a NEW BLOG called "Cookie's Place--Chuck & Chat". The URL is
Our illustrious left wing, very pro-abortion, Ass-Hat Senator Chuck Shumer from New York has repeatedly labeled we Tea Party folks as "Extremists" and "dangerous". Well, if this is being an "Extremist", I'm GUILTY AS CHARGED CHUCKY!!
I've written Chucky several times over the years regarding Abortion and his responce is always the exact same form letter stating how he is against abortion, but FOR womens rights....Righhhht!
Like many, I've continued to have doubts, and so does "The Donald"!
As many of Y'all know, I'm a retired Police Detective Sergeant, and as such, in all my investigations I had to be as objective and neutral as possible and let the evidence take me where-ever it would, whether I liked what I was discovering or not.
Always begin with the basic FACTS of a case, provable and true items that need NOT necessarily be proven in court, something known in the court system as "Res Gestae". For instance, a basic statement known to be true is "The sun will rise in the morning." We all know the sun will always rise. Another example, "The ocean is composed of salt water." These are facts and need not to be proven to the court or jury.
However, if I were to question Mr. Obama ( notice I did not extend his title of President to him) in an investigation and needed to ascertain his actual time and place of birth, he would be required to produce these facts to satisfy my query. Now Sir, it is obvious Mr. Obama is alive and here (Res Gestae) because I can see, hear and feel him. I do not need to prove his existence. What is NOT evident is where, when and to whom were you born Mr. Obama. I need some form of official documentation and confirmation of those aspects before I can proceed in laying the basic legal foundation.
So, before I can continue with the investigation, I need to begin with this basic piece of information. Mr. Obama, if you have one, just show us the got-damned Birth Certificate and put this matter to rest!
Initially, I was objective and neutral and gave you the benefit of the doubt, but at this point in time, I sincerely do not believe you were born in these United States and are in fact a fraud ! A belief now shared by many.
Overwhelm The System!
By Wayne Allyn Root.
"Unless voters respond in large numbers to this outrage the next elections may already be lost to the voter pool of those depending on tax monay and a pool that has already expanded expotentially!! He who was clever enough to get their vote the first time may have already won the next elections!"
"OBAMA'S COLLEGE ROOMMATE SPEAKS OUT By Wayne Allyn Root , June 6th, 2010
Barack Hussien Obama is no fool. He is not incompetent. To the contrary, he is brilliant. He knows exactly what he's doing.
He is purposely overwhelming the U.S. economy to create systemic failure, economic crisis and social chaos -- thereby destroying capitalism and our country from within.
Barack Hussien Obama was my college classmate (Columbia University, class of '83).
He is a devout Muslim do not be fooled.
Look at his Czars...anti-business..anti- american. As Glenn Beck correctly predicted from day one, Barack Hussien Obama is following the plan of Cloward & Piven, two professors at Columbia University. They outlined a plan to socialize America by overwhelming the system with government spending and entitlement demands.
Add up the clues below. Taken individually they're alarming.
Taken as a whole, it is a brilliant, Machiavellian game plan to turn the United States into a socialist/Marxist state with a permanent majority that desperately needs government for survival ... and can be counted on to always vote for bigger government.
Why not? They have no responsibility to pay for it. Universal health care . The health care bill had very little to do with health care. It had everything to do with unionizing millions of hospital and health care workers, as well as adding 15,000 to 20,000 new IRS agents (who will join government employee unions).
Obama doesn't care that giving free health care to 30 million Americans will add trillions to the national debt.
What he does care about is that it cements the dependence of those 30 million voters to Democrats and big government. Who but a socialist revolutionary would pass this reckless spending bill in the middle of a depression?
Cap and trade. Like health care legislation having nothing to do with health care, cap and trade has nothing to do with global warming.
It has everything to do with redistribution of income, government control of the economy and a criminal payoff to Obama's biggest contributors. Those powerful and wealthy unions and contributors (like GE, which owns NBC, MSNBC and CNBC) can then be counted on to support everything Obama wants.
They will kick-back hundreds of millions of dollars in contributions to
Obama and the Democratic Party to keep them in power. The bonus is that all the new taxes on Americans with bigger cars, bigger homes and businesses helps Obama "spread the wealth around."
Make Puerto Rico a state. Why? Who's asking for a 51st state? Who's asking for millions of new welfare recipients and government entitlement addicts in the middle of a depression?
Certainly not American taxpayers. But this has been Barack Hussien Obama's plan all along.
His goal is to add two new Democrat senators, five Democrat congressman and a million loyal Democratic voters who are dependent on big government.
Legalize 12 million illegal Mexican immigrants. Just giving these 12 million potential new citizens free health care alone could overwhelm the system and bankrupt America.
But it adds 12 million reliable new Democrat voters who can be counted on to support big government. Add another few trillion dollars in welfare, aid to dependent children, food stamps, free medical, education, tax credits for the poor, and eventually Social Security .
Stimulus and bailouts. Where did all that money go?
It went to Democrat contributors, organizations (ACORN), and unions -- including billions of dollars to save or create jobs of government employees across the country.
It went to save GM and Chrysler so that their employees could keep paying union dues.
It went to AIG so that Goldman Sachs could be bailed out (after giving Obama almost $1 million in contributions).
A staggering $125 billion went to teachers (thereby protecting their union dues).
All those public employees will vote loyally Democrat to protect their bloated salaries and pensions that are bankrupting America.
The country goes broke, future generations face a bleak future, but Obama, the Democrat Party, government, and the unions grow more powerful.
The ends justify the means.
Raise taxes on small business owners, high-income earners, and job creators. Put the entire burden on only the top 20 percent of taxpayers, redistribute the income, punish success, and reward those who did nothing to deserve it (except vote for Obama).
Reagan wanted to dramatically cut taxes in order to starve the government. Barack Obama wants to dramatically raise taxes to starve his political opposition. With the acts outlined above, Barack Hussien Obama and his regime have created a vast and rapidly expanding constituency of voters dependent on big government; a vast privileged class of public employees who work for big government; and a government dedicated to destroying capitalism and installing themselves as socialist rulers by overwhelming the system.
Add it up and you've got the perfect Marxist scheme -- all devised by my Columbia University college classmate Barack Hussien Obama using the Cloward and Piven Plan ."
To understand Mr. Wayne Allyn Root's background and his credentials as per "Snopes" and "Truth or Fiction", go to these links;
the above letter has been factually attributed to Mr. Wayne Allyn Root, who was NOT physically Obama's roommate at Columbia University but a 1983 classmate, the term roommate being used metaphorically.
This article was forwarded to me by my good friend Patrick.
"VIGILIS" said; "Anyone who needs to know whether or not Obama wants to declare himself a Muslim need only vote for him again in 2012 when he would no longer need sto hide it."
"The Chief" said; "Maybe "The Donald's" investigation will show that he was never born at all. He may be the result of some alien's anal probe!"
COOKIE said; Chief, you may actually be on to something there matey. Being the big POS that he is you just may have hit the nail on the head!!
"Dapper Dan" said; "read about most of these things on Obama's agenda separately, in different reports, posts, etc. But to see them all together like this is truly frightening. Let's work hard to vote him out of office in 2012. Then, as Vigilis says, it won't matter where he was born, or if his birth, as Chief suggests, was the result of some anal probe. IMHO, symbolically, he's the bastard offspring of Marx and Mao and the Ayatollah."
"Quigley Irwin Wigley" said; "Cookie, I am definitely a "Dog Lover". And you're an old sea dog I just find irresistable! Maybe it's because you usually smell like fresh-cooked vittles?"
COOKIE said; Quigley mate, I really appreciate the nice sentiment but I think you need to take a spell'n lesson or two frum that old curmudgeon you call yur master. "Vittles" is spelt VICTUALS, and look up "irrestible" my friend.
Tuesday tidbits....and How to boil a Leg Fresh Ham.
I think these two very short video's will answer the question, "Why Do Men Die Younger?"
A plane crashed in the middle of rural Iowa...
Panic stricken, the local sheriff mobilized and descended on the
farm in force. When they got there, the disaster was clear. The aircraft
was totally destroyed with only a burned hulk left smoldering in a tree line that bordered a farm. The sheriff and his men entered the smoking mess but could find no remains of anyone.
They spotted a lone farmer plowing a field not too far away as if
nothing had happened. They hurried over to the man's tractor.
"Hank," the sheriff yelled, panting and out of breath. "Did you see
this terrible accident happen?".
"Yep. Sure did." the farmer mumbled unconcernedly, cutting off the
"Do you realize that is the airplane of the President of the United
"Were there any survivors?"
"Nope. They's all kilt straight out," the farmer answered. "I done
buried them all myself. Took me most of the morning.."
"President Obama is dead?" the sheriff shouted.
"Well," the farmer grumbled, restarting his tractor. "He kept
a-saying he wasn't ... But you know how bad that sumbitch lies."
Time now fer some Tommy Cox, "A Big Black Submarine."
Cookie just loves pull'n great pranks on folks and I'd love to have pulled this one!!!
Gotta THANK my old friend Bob Walker fer that one.
Boiled Fresh Ham
The other day, me good Irish lass of a wife was at the store getting a 12 pound Leg Fresh Ham. As the butcher was giving it to her, several folks around her asked her "How do you cook that?" She told them that you SIMPLY boil it with some spices!
As it turned out, all the nearby folks that were listening had never heard of "Boiling a Leg Fresh Ham." So, if'n you've never had Boiled Fresh Ham, here's how t'do it, and yur in fer a treat!
1 Leg Fresh Whole Ham or 10- to 12-pound half ham. IMPORTANT: DO NOT USE A SMOKED HAM OR GLAZED HAM!
A Fresh Ham is simply a very large leg pork roast.
2 teaspoons of salt, or to taste (optional)
4 Tablespoons Chopped fresh Garlic, or to your taste.
1 Tablespoon Allspice, or to your taste.
5-7 Whole cloves, or to your taste.
Water to cover
You’ll need a large pot, because the ham should be covered with water at all times.
Place the ham on a rack in the pot, cover with water. Add the above spices to your taste' cover pot and place on high heat.
Bring water to a full boil. Let boil rapidly about 10 minutes, then reduce heat to a simmer and cook about 25 minutes a pound for a 12-pound ham, or about 4 or 5 hours until a meat thermometer reads the internal temperature is about 160 degrees F.
Remove pot from heat and leave the ham to cool in the cooking water.
Lift ham from cooking water, wipe dry. Remove and discard all the excess fat (and there will be plenty). Carve slices and serve for the main meal, or for sandwiches. Serve with mashed p'taters smuthered in butter, or Garlic Rice, and some Apple Sauce.
...and that old Gyrene, "You Know Who" said regarding the changes in my Header; "Sarcastic old fart, ain't yah? I'm surprised your Mrs. only boiled your leg...."
A "Special" posting. If'n y'all ever get the chance.....USS Arizona Memorial.
But first, my wife, the "submariner"...
A few years back my wife and I were fortunate enough to have taken a cruise to Hawaii and while there, we took a dive on the "Atlantis" Submarine. Elaine was a bit apprehensive as first off she doesn't swim and secondly, SHE WAS UNDER THE OCEAN!! It's really quite an interesting tour. We cruised at approximately 127 feet below the surface so it's a very REAL submarine experience. I understand they also have these submarines in the Caribbean as well so if'n y'all ever get a chance, take the dive, I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
One of the main reasons I wanted, needed, to go to Pearl Harbor was to see and visit the USS Arizona Memorial. It's a very moving and somber experience, especially fer an old sailor. Of note, is that on the day we were at the Memorial, there were also many older Japanese men and their wives, many were crying. Judging from their ages and their somewhat intense grieving, I suspect they may possibly have had something to do with that date which will live in Infamy, December 7, 1941.
The Memorial is in fact the final resting place of 1177 Sailors and Marines that served aboard her, and out of respect there is virtual silence throughout the Memeorial.
She still bleeds her oil to this day.....
These two short videos are self explanatory.
Now Sir, if'n yur more of an adventurous type, take a "doors off" Helicopter flight over an active volcano, Kilauea. You can really feel the heat from the volcano.
"Vigilis" said; "In its infinite wisdom, the Navy sent me to Pearl for training that had been delayed one week.
This was AFTER I submitted a 60-day "early out" for additional college. The school command approved a one-week vacation (disapproved by my boat, they had said, but I doubted so). I got to Ford Island and the Arizona Memorial- fantastic!
To make the vacation even better, I flew my wife over to Hawaii for a belated honeymoon. The Navy would not approve our marriage for many months (I have the chits to prove it). 35 years later I would be told why: mission criticality. That is all I am at liberty to say to this day.
COOKIE said; Vigilis, if you don't mind, what years were you in? I might be able to figure our the nature and criticality of that mission, location and time. I maintained quite a few contacts after I left the service, many of them Officers like yourself and heard a great many things that I still haven't spoken of to this day. In fact, my post about the near catastrophe at West Milton was the first time I'd spoken about that since 1965.
Beginning in early 2011 gas stations will start

Have A GREAT Day
Some financial planning.....
Dan was a single guy living at home with his father and working in the family business.
When he found out he was going to inherit a fortune when his sickly father died, he decided he needed to find a wife with whom to share his fortune.
One evening, at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen.
Her natural beauty took his breath away. "I may look like just an ordinary guy," he said to her, "But in just a few years my father will die and I will inherit $200 million".
"Impressed, the woman asked for his business card and three days later, she became his stepmother.
Women are so much better at financial planning than men.
Saturday Tunes.... As me wife frum Brooklyn would say, "Hoimans Hoimets". Vote fer "Quigley"!
Well Sir, it seems me old "Gyrene" buddy "The Chief" has entered his rather ugly, but very loveable dog, "Quigley Irwin Wigley" in a local TV station contest fer "TOP DOG" and he would like for all of us who care to do so to go to the link I've provided and VOTE FER QUIGLEY.
For a great many years I was under the mistaken impression that the University of Texas "Longhorn" logo was inspired by the Texas Longhorn breed of cattle. Silly me.
INNOCENCE IS PRICELESS
One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed little Alex standing in the foyer of the church staring up at a large plaque. It was covered with names and small American flags mounted on either side of it. The six-year old had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the pastor walked up, stood beside the little boy, and said quietly, 'Good morning Alex.' 'Good morning Pastor,' he replied, still focused on the plaque. 'Pastor, what is this? ' The pastor said, 'Well son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died in the service.'
Soberly, they just stood together, staring at the large plaque. Finally, little Alex's voice, barely audible and trembling with fear asked,
'Which service, the 9:00 or the 11:00?'
Two young guys appear in court after being arrested for smoking dope.
The judge says, "You seem like nice young men, and I'd like to give you a second chance instead of jail time. I want you to go out this weekend and try to convince others of the evils of drug use. I'll see you back in court Monday."
On Monday, the judge asks the first guy, "How did you do over the weekend?"
"Well, your honor, I persuaded 17 people to give up drugs forever."
"Seventeen people? That's wonderful. How did you do it? "
"I used a diagram, your honor. I drew two circles like this: O o. Then I told them that the big circle is your brain before drugs and the small circle is your brain after drugs."
"That's admirable," says the judge. Then he turns to the second guy. "And how did you do?"
"Well, your honor, I persuaded 156 people to give up drugs forever."
"Wow!" says the judge. "156 people! How did you manage to do that?"
"Well, I used a similar diagram," the guy says. "I drew two circles like this: o O. Then I pointed to the little circle and said, 'This is your asshole before prison...........
This quote is reported as having originated in the Czech Republic. It doesn't make much difference who said it or where or when it was said. It is worthy of serious thought!
Many of us bloggers have expressed the same concern only not as eloquently or clearly.
"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president.
The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a Barack Obama, who is, after all, merely a fool. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president."
Regarding the above quote, listen to this. I REST MY CASE!!!
This is the first time that I recall March not only coming "in like a lion", but going out "like a lion" as well!!!

"Vigilis" said; "A few years ago, Al Gore and some federal $$$$ grant-greedy pseudo scientists explained "Global Warming", which would lead to rising sea levels, polar bear extinctions, and human suffocation. When evidence quickly contradicted such bogus claims, these con artists renamed their dire prediction "Climate Change", which could lead to either the foregoing, or shorter crop growing seasons. human migration toward the South, and starvation of human beings.
Are you willing to pay your grandchildren's inheritance tio charlatan's to reduce the carbon dioxide gas we exhale? Go ahead! Climate history, which these con artists cannot alter, tells a quite different story: the relatively short warm period (halocene) we now inhabit typically lasts 10,000 years. Ours is 13,000 years old. Guess what?
We are due for a long (about 100,000 years) cold spell. http://aquilinefocus.blogspot.com/2007/05/what-is-al-gore-rhythm-more-dance-than.html
"The Chief" said; "Well, it's sunny & blue here in the upper Midwest. But, it's still only in the 30s. Maybe April will be better. But then, we'll have to start cutting the damned grass; can't win."
March 30th is Officially, Welcome a Vietnam Vet Home Day. Lets remember why! If you know a Vietnam Vet, just say "Welcome Home and Thank You" for the welcome home he never received.
Ingenious Way to Stimulate Supermarket Sales !!!
Sense of Freshness....
A while ago a new supermarket opened here in Bridgeport, NY.
It has an automatic water mister to keep the produce fresh.
Just before it goes on, you hear the sound of distant thunder and the smell of fresh rain.
When you pass the milk cases, you hear cows mooing and you experience the
scent of fresh mowed hay.
In the meat department there is the aroma of charcoal grilled steaks with
When you approach the egg case, you hear hens cluck and cackle, and
the air is filled with the pleasing aroma of bacon and eggs frying.
The bread department features the tantalizing smell of fresh baked
bread and cookies.
( I don't buy our toilet paper there any more.!)
Gonna take a very short break. Folks ask me why I don't spend hardly anytime on Facebook even though I'm on it. First, I think its a major waste of time. Second, I've made only two comments on Facebook all the time I've been on it and both time some (although I know what word I would use, you fill in the blanks) has challanged me to a pissing match over something. Life's way to short (and I'm a short-timer already) to waste on crap like that.
"The Chief" said; "Mom always said that "discretion is the better part of valor". I've always relished the "stand & fight" credo, instead. But, when a guy has spent the better part of his life fighting, I guess it's best that he goes with "turn the other cheek" and gives it a rest... for awhile. It's okay, there's at least one Marine out here, willing to pick up the slack while you're on R & R...."
COOKIE; said; I agree with your Mom Chief, and I've opted to "choose my battles" and this one ain't worth the time, nor is the person. Thanks Mate for take'n my back, I could always count on The Marines fer that!
The Chief said; "We don't mind "takin' yer back"; it's a better view... than yer front!"
"Vigilis" said; "Cookie,
Chiming in late. here, but always faithful. What first intriguiged me about this local feat was trying to identifying the locale (which you may already know). by attention to fleeting signage and language clues, the area first seems to be in a very hilly region of Brasil. HINT: Google "Coduego". Now, assuming Brasil s correct, what do we see on the filmmaker's clapboard (or slate) near the video's end?
The writing is neither Portugese nor latino, it appears to be Arabic (I am, however, only somewhat familiar with cyrillic, Greek, anglo and latin scripts). After the Latin alphabet, Arabic is the second-most widely used alphabet around the world. 
So, the most unnerving revelation of your video for me is not so much the motion, but the Islamic script on the video creator's almost unnoticeable clapboard in a country, which by CIA Factbook estimates is 89% Christian. I am certain you would never promote such a hidden agenda knowingly, and this one appears to have been well-hidden. Why Arabic?!"
COOKIE sad; It is in fact Chile Vigilis. Its obvious you have great investigative and observation skill Vigilis. Comes with the territory when you're an investigator like yourself. Good job mate!
I'm just an old Vietnam era Disabled Veteran Seabee, (and an old "Diesel-Boat" Sub-Sailer ) who's just a killin time...till time kills me. After retiring from many years in Law Enforcement as a Detective Sergeant, I now spends most a m'time a cookin fer feller sportsmen(and m' Wife) & writin a cook'n column fer a Fish & Game Magazine. I Hunt & Fish and don't care much fer liberals or ACLUers. I live in a small northern NY town on Oneida Lake, and like it that way. I can be as cantankerous as a Grizzly Bear with a tooth ache, or as cuddly as a Teddy Bear...mostly the former...
