A little weekend PotPourri.

Gotta goodly assortment of various materials and humor fer Y'all in this post. ENJOY!!!

Well Sir, we'll begin with what is possibly some real good advice to some of you mid-eastern countries who don't particularly care fer Israel. Obama, you might wanna pay some heed as well "Mr. President"!


Now Sir, fer all you newlyweds to be, or recently married couples, here be some great advice, mother to daughter, to "The Secrets to a Great Marriage"


This first political commentary IS NOT ABOUT POLITICAL PARTIES!!

The 2010 Election Day ... Your U.S. House & Senate have voted themselves $4,700 and $5,300 raises.

1. They voted to not give you a S.S. Cost of living raise in 2010 and 2011.

2. Your Medicare premiums will go up $285.60 for the 2-years and you Will not get the 3% COLA or $660/yr. Your total 2-yr loss and cost is $1,600 or $3,200 for husband and wife. Plain enough??????

3. Every member of Congress will get an added$10,000 which is putting them very close to $ 200,000 per year. Sounds like an elite class to us.

4. Do you feel SCREWED? They vote themselves a raise and better benefits. They only care about WE THE PEOPLE on election day, right? You never did anything about it in the past. The time for action is near!!!!

5. Do you really think that Nancy, Harry, Chris, Charlie, Barnie, et al, care About you? SEND THE MESSAGE-- You're FIRED.

*** THIS IS NOT ABOUT POLITICAL PARTIES! IN 2010 YOU WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO GET RID OF THE ENTIRE SITTING CONGRESS, Up to 1/3 OF THE SENATE, AND 100% OF THE HOUSE. The election in 2010 will be a sea-change to the Mindset of any member Of Congress who may survive.


Now THIS on the other hand is....

Gotta THANK "YankeeMom" fer passing this one along to us.

The liberals are asking us to give Obama time.
We agree and think 25 to life would be appropriate.

America needs Obamacare like Nancy Pelosi needs a Halloween mask.

Q: Have you heard about McDonalds new Obama Value Meal?
A: Order anything you like and the guy behind you has to pay for it.

Q: What does Barack Obama call lunch with a convicted felon?
A: A fund raiser.

Q: What's the difference between Obama's cabinet and a penitentiary?
A: One is filled with tax evaders, blackmailers and threats to society.
The other is for housing prisoners.

If Nancy Pelosi and Obama were on a boat in the middle of the ocean and It started to sink, who would be saved? .... America!

Q: What's the difference between Obama and his dog, Bo?
A: Bo has papers.

After the recent bullshit and betrayal by the AARP, I'm seriously contemplating joining this organization. I've already cancelled my membership in the AARP which sold ALL of us seniors right down the tubes....

AMAC vs. AARP - David vs. Goliath

There are two organizations representing citizens 50 plus.

AMAC, the Association of Mature American Citizens has 10’s of thousands of members

AARP has 26 million Members.

The leadership of AARP has proven themselves to be a liberal leaning group that endorsed expensive Obamacare, without the consent of their members.

AMAC (pronounced A- Mack) is one of the leading groups fighting against President Obama’s health care initiative. AMAC has organized “Tea Parties” and participated in rallies against expanding government and raising taxes.

AMAC is pro-life, pro Second Amendment, and thinks government has grown too large and powerful. AMAC feels our elected officials are ignoring the will of the people. The proof of this can be seen in the way Congressmen and Senators have been treating their constituents at the various town hall meetings.

We need more members so we can have more clout with office holders. We need to counter the influence of AARP when they say they are speaking on behalf of Americans aged 50 and over.

AMAC will lead this fight knowing we can win, if you and other patriot Americans stand behind us.

Please go to and sign on as a member. For $12.50/year, you will know we are working on your behalf to stop socialism in America.

David conquered Goliath- and AMAC can beat AARP. Please check out our website and if you agree with us, please tell your friends.

Members receive our magazine and qualify for member discounts on Insurance and other services.


...and last, but most certainly NOT LEAST, here's a brief commentary regarding the Global Warming Scam and the recently discovered hidden E-Mails....

...and in case y'all missed what this is all about, this gentleman says it quite well...


Gotta give a BIG Cookshack Thanks to "Charlie The Cop", "Sig", Clint Griffin frum San Diego, "YankeeMom, and John Keating frum out Michigan way fer sharin there with us....

Congressional Candidate Allen West.

I really like this man and his message. Hmmm, gee, in that he's a black man, does my liking him make me a racist?? Cause if'n I disagreed with him the leftist folks would call me one so's I imagine that the converse would also apply.

WTF is wrong with people in this community!!!?

It's stories like this that absolutely anger and infuriate me, and I'm sure many of you as well. I saw this article over at Old Soldier and just had to re-post it fer Y'all. Take yur blood pressure meds before watching this video. This is so sad.

My Military readers and those close to the Military fully realize the respect and admiration that a Congressional Medal of Honor winner is afforded, and rightfully so, however, it is obvious that there are those who could care less and choose to make an issue out of a flagpole instead of waving the "rules" and make a well earned exception. Assholes!!

Medal Of Honor Winner who fought in 3 wars forced to remove flagpole by his community.

"Henrico Medal of Honor winner, 90, ordered to remove flagpole !

Col. Van T. Barfoot, a local Medal of Honor winner, is under the gun from his Henrico County community's homeowner association.

In a five-paragraph letter to Barfoot that he received yesterday, Barfoot is being ordered to remove a flagpole from his yard. The decorated veteran of three wars, now 90 years old, raises the American flag every morning on the pole, then lowers and folds the flag at dusk each day in a three-corner military fashion.

In a priority mail letter, the Coates & Davenport law firm in Richmond is ordering Barfoot to remove the pole by 5 p.m. Friday or face "legal action being brought to enforce the Covenants and Restrictions against you." The letter states that Barfoot will be subject to paying all legal fees and costs in any successful legal proceeding pursued by the homeowner association's board.

Barfoot's daughter said this evening that news reports about the association order have prompted an outpouring of sympathy and offers of help from people following her father's ordeal.

Tonight, the Sussex Square Homeowners Association issued a statement reiterating its position that Barfoot directly violated the association board's denial of his request to erect a flagpole.

"This is not about the American flag. This about a flagpole," the statement reads.

Barfoot lives in the Sussex Square community in far western Henrico; its board of directors rejected a plea from Barfoot in July to approve the pole, disallowing the fixture on aesthetic grounds.

There is no provision in the community's rules expressly forbidding flagpoles, Barfoot's daughter said. But she said the board ruled against her father's fixture and ordered it removed in July, deciding that free-standing flag poles are not aesthetically appropriate. Short flag stands attached to porches dot the community.

"Dad sort of feels like this is the end," said Margaret Nicholls, Barfoot's daughter, who lives a few doors away. But she said this morning that she and her husband are attempting to generate support for her father's cause, a flag-raising rite that he has undertaken for most of his life.

Barfoot received the Medal of Honor on the battlefield during World War II in Italy and fought as well in the Korean and Vietnam wars. A portion of a highway in rural Mississippi, his native state, was named in his honor this fall. A building at McGuire Veterans Hospital in Richmond also carries his name.

Barfoot began regularly flying the flag on Veteran's Day this year despite the Sussex Square board's decision.

He said in November that not flying the flag would be a sacrilege to him.

"There's never been a day in my life or a place I've lived in my life that you couldn't fly the American flag," he said.

Have you ever heard that a dog "knows" when an earthquake is about to hit?

Have you ever heard that a dog can "sense" when a tornado is stirring up, even 20 miles away?

Do you remember hearing that before the December tsunami struck Southeast Asia, dogs started running frantically away from the seashore, at breakneck speed?

Do you know that dogs can detect cancer and other serious illnesses and danger of fire?

Somehow they always know when they can 'go for a ride' before you even ask and how do those dogs and cats get home from hundreds of miles away?

I'm a firm believer that animals - and especially dogs - have keen insights into the Truth.

And you can't tell me that dogs can't sense a potentially terrible disaster well in advance.

Simply said, a dog just KNOWS when something isn't right ... . when impending doom is upon us . . they'll always try to warn us.... !!


Fact of Life:

After Monday and Tuesday even the calendar says:

W T F !!!

Merry Christmas Honey....


The NEW KFC meal...

We all remember the "Hillary Meal"---small breasts and
big thighs.

Now, KFC has announced an addition to their chicken

It's called the Obama Cabinet Bucket.---It consists of nothing
but Left wings and assholes.

Gotta Thank "Charlie The Cop", "Upstate Nicki" and John Keating fer t'days submissions...

Tuesday Tidbits.

This question answers itself.


"Honey, would you go out and warm up the car for me please?"

This gives new meaning to the phrase "Honey would you go outside and warm up the car for me." These were taken this weekend at a friend's house in Conifer. Conifer is just west of Denver out 285.

Well Sir, If'n y'all got AOL, many of ya saw this here short video yesterday, but if'n ya missed it, here's a cute video and a little girls tooth bein pulled out by a car.

Back around 1950, my Dad, who liked to drink a little bit decided he was gonna pull one of my loose baby teeth by pullin it out by a car. The only problem was he used a real 1948 or 49 Dodge with a "Dynaflow" transmission. He asked me if I was ready and then floored it. I think it was about two blocks later when the tooth came out. From there on out I went to the Dentist.

...Who says men aren't romantic?


A simple question fer Y'all.

Which poster would Y'all hang on yur wall? My friend Liz who lives out in Jesse James's old stompin grounds sent me the "Hope" poster.

Most of y'all know the Cookie by now and how I just loves to poke a thumb into the eye's of any secular progressive liberal types who happen to make the mistake of stopp'n by The Cookshack!

Now Sir, just t'be clear. If'n some of y'all don't believe in Christ, that's OK (I didn't either for many years till I had a rude wake-up call), just answer "neither" and that'll suffice.

Here's a Military Tattoo fer y'all...

Now Sir, here be a Military Tattoo fer y'all. Nooo, not the type of tattoo ya where on yur body, but an original Military Tattoo.

Now this is PRECISION!! In my life I've seen both our US Navy and Marine Corps Drill teams live, and I've gotta say, although they are both very good, these guys put em both to shame.

Now Sir, here's a brief history of the Military Tattoo.

The original meaning of military tattoo is a military drum performance, but nowadays it sometimes means army displays more generally. It dates from the seventeenth century when the British Army was fighting in the Low Countries (Belgium and The Netherlands). Drummers from the garrison were sent out into the towns at 21:30 hrs (9:30PM) each evening to inform the soldiers that it was time to return to barracks. The process was known as doe den tap toe (old-Dutch for "turn off the tap"), an instruction to innkeepers to stop serving beer and send the soldiers home for the night. The drummers continued to play until the curfew at 22:00 hrs (10:00PM).

Over the years, the process became more of a show and often included the playing of the first post at 21:30 hrs and the last post at 22:00. Bands and displays were included and shows were often conducted by floodlight or searchlight. Tattoos were commonplace in the late 1800s with most military and garrison towns putting on some kind of show or entertainment during the summer months. Between the First World War and the Second World War elaborate tattoos were held in many towns, with the largest in Aldershot.

One of the best known Tattoos is held on the Esplanade in front of Edinburgh Castle each August and forms the centrepiece of the annual Edinburgh Festival. The Edinburgh Military Tattoo was first staged in 1950; it combines the traditional sounds of the bagpipes and drums with the modern aspects of the armed forces. Another leading UK Tattoo is the Birmingham Tattoo held annually at the National Indoor Arena in November which has been attracting audiences to Birmingham since 1989. In 2008, The Windsor Castle Royal Tattoo was launched, held in the private grounds of Windsor Castle by permission of HM The Queen. The event's proceeds went to Royal British Legion to help support recently returned troops from battle. The event was held again in 2009.

Another well-known Tattoo was the Royal Tournament which was held annually in London from 1880 to 1999. The Royal International Air Tattoo is the world's largest military airshow, open to the public.

The indoor Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo is the largest annual indoor tattoo, featuring in 2007 over 2000 performers from around the world, including Switzerland, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands and Norway. There is another military tattoo in Canada : The Quebec City Military Tattoo. This event is part of the Quebec City International Festival of Military Bands which takes place in August(14-24).

Gotta Thank my buddy Clint Griffin frum out San Diego way fer sendin us this.
