We've got news on the GOP by Tom Delay, Moonbats who play Bridge, Mike Huckabee's record on illlegal drivers licenses might surprise those convinced this man is a Conservative's dream.

Political Tidbits

The Picture Says It All

Barack Hussein Obama is a candidate with no experience, glib tongue, nice appearance and, well the picture below says all that needs to be said.

If this man can’t be bothered to put his hand over his heart in reverence to our flag we shouldn’t be bothered enough to vote for Barack Hussein Obama.

Barack Obama with no hand over his heart

Ted Kennedy’s New Book…Does He Mention Mary Jo Kopechne?

From the Boston by Howie Carr:
The very least Ted Kennedy can do is dedicate his autobiography to Mary Jo Kopechne.

So the senior senator is getting an $8 million advance for his memoirs - who says crime doesn’t pay?

I remember the Mary Jo Kopechne story, yes I do. Sadly many who vote for the continuing reign of Sleaze Master Ted Kennedy, are too young to remember this murder of a vibrant young woman who should be alive and maybe grand-mothering her descendents. Instead she drowned at the bottom of a lake, left there to die while the fine Ted Kennedy went off in mid of night to obtain a lawyer to cover his tracks.

Yes, I am bitter about this fellow that the people of Massachusetts, the few who I know seem to be perfectly normal people, but still they continue to elect this murderer so what am I to believe?

When the saga of Kopechne and Chappaquidick was saturating the available print media of the time, I read everything I could on the matter and was absolutely amazed. Back then we did not have the Internet, surely there were no Blogs and forums such as FreeRepublic. Still, it was a media frenzy and I absorbed it all, believing, silly me, that even senators couldn’t get away with leaving a young woman to die at the bottom of a shallow lake.

He not only got away with it, he’s STILL senator from Massachusetts and still the Massachusetts voters keep electing him. I wonder that they would probably keep voting for this man even if it was their own daughters left to drown after a night of carousing with the fine Ted.

Every time I hear that man pontificate about water-boarding I wonder why someone doesn’t ask if leaving someone to drown in a car that you swim away from might be considered torture.

He gets an eight million dollar advance to have someone ghost-write his book.

Will he even give Mary Jo a mention?

Mike Huckabee…an Affable Guy With Sinister Undertones

Mike Huckabee before and after diet

Yon fine ladies and gems, for yea many years since the mid-eighties, our elected politicos, both local and federal, have failed their jobs at Governance 101: “Protect They Borders and Protect Thy Citizens.”

Indeed while we’ve been carrying this country on our backs whilst raising the citizens and soldiers of tomorrow, these elected elites have totally failed to do the simple act of protecting the country’s borders. Then as the problems rose and festered, they continued to put band-aids on the problem, smile in our face, and collect money from businesses seeking cheap labor that their fine selves may be re-elected.

It was only recently that the American public, liberals, conservatives and mythical moderates alike rose as one to angrily rebuke the mess their self-protection has cost us. Here in the swamps of Delaware, once charming towns have turned into backstreet barrios. One must drive around fearful of an auto accident because the Hondurans who man the local chicken factories rarely have car insurance. Spanish speaking check-cashing stores are on every corner. Local emergency rooms are filled with illegal immigrants seeking free medical care.

Do NOT be fooled by the affable Mike Huckabee, currently the darling of the drive-by media. The fellow has a friendly smile, nice demeanor, firm handshake.

He too wanted to give illegal immigrants free drivers’ licenses from the state of Arkansas.

We’ve given Hillary some grief over this issue, which she much deserved. But yon readers, Americans are mad as hell at how these elected politicos didn’t do their jobs and damn if this smirking hick of a governor from Arkansas didn’t too pressur that state legislature to grant driver’s licenses to illegal immigrants that they might hijack airplanes or engage in whatever mischief this universally accepted form of identification might allow. American citizens have been inundating our local and federal legislators to DO THEIR DAMN JOB. It’s not rocket science. Protect the country’s borders and come up with a system to allow entry to immigrants to our country based on a clean criminal record, a clear health record, a job that awaits, and an ability or commitment to speak our language. Any CEO who did the jobs our elected political elite did as regards this illegal alien mess would have been fired toot de sweet.

And Mike Huckabee was part of parcel of the political elite who spit in your face and rooted on an attempt to give those who entered our country illegally their own fine drivers licenses.

From the Arkansas Journal:
During the 2001 regular session of the Arkansas Legislature, Mike Huckabee supported giving driver's licenses to illegal aliens.

Shut Up and Play Bridge

The Moonbats won’t give it up.

I call it BDS…Bush Derangement Syndrome. It’s the totally irrational, and damn scary, hatred of President George W. Bush.

From the
WE DID NOT VOTE FOR BUSH." Those words were handwritten on the back of a menu by the US women's bridge team and held aloft during the award ceremony at the world team championships in Shanghai last month.

I mean really, yon ladies and gems. Was such a silly sign necessary at an international Bridge tournament, of all things?

The article linked above is in a very liberal periodical published by folks so full of BDS they can’t see the horizon.

There is simply no place at a freaking international card game for this sort of rhetoric. The American Bridge Association is very angry at this Bridge team for that totally un-necessary sign.

Couldn’t they have just played Bridge for God’s sake?

Tom Delay Says GOP Needs to Get Some Backbone

Or Hillary’s going to win…says the former House Majority Leader.

From The
Tom Delay

"They're looking for some backbone," said DeLay, who also chimed in on the 2008 election. He said the Republican party is "going to get our clocks cleaned in 2008" and unequivocally said that "Hillary [Clinton] will be the next president." Which ought to give DeLay’s newest projects, the Coalition for a Conservative Majority and a consulting firm called First Principles, LLC, plenty to do.

Which leads into a fine and germane rant on that mess of a Youtube/CNN debate on 11/28/07.

There’s Only One Solution to CNN’s Joke of a Debate on 11/28/07

See, what we’re doing here…we’re running a primary. There are eight or so candidates seeking the Republican nomination to run for President in 2008. Thus debates currently upon should be about the PARTY issues.

And folks, the Republican party is not immersed in such matters as gays in the military, confederate flags, bibles as governance, lead in toys from China…on and on.

What the hell was CNN thinking when it presented that terrible debate? Had the debate pitted Republican against Democrat, well hey, that’s a different story.

But don’t the fools at CNN, fools too dumb to use a search engine if they are to be believed, choose some of the most idiotic Youtube scenes to present at the Republican debate?

Folks, I am not going to even launch into the rant that this Clinton-engineered event deserves.

For there is only ONE way for the Republican party to handle this insult.

The Democrats refused to have their debates on Fox news. They refused for no other reason beyond that they really hate that Fox news, which does not march to the tune of the Clintons, has a viewing audience at all. Of course Fox beats every other cable news network in the ratings in ALL time slots.

So why can’t the national Republican party, boom, just issue a statement that because of CNN’s total mismanagement of the debate on 11/28/07 that no more Republican debates will be granted to CNN?

Further, why can’t the national Republican party just pull all press credentials of any CNN employees, block them out of the convention, just throw that network over the bow like the Democrats did to Fox news?

The Republican party can’t control CNN but the Republican party can control whose debates it will participate in.

I would ask the national GOP….when will it get bad enough? That CNN had SEVEN, count them, SEVEN, Democratic plants, wasn’t that bad enough? First, I mention again, this was a PRIMARY debate and if CNN thinks Republicans are sitting around all worried about gays in the freaking military…so much that CNN had that stupid fake queer General (he ain’t a general folks, that’s just one thing) getting more air time than any one of the candidates…CNN doesn’t know its head from a hole in the ground. Second, there might not be a problem with Democratic plants even allowing that they should have been there, which they shouldn’t, than at the least a so-called “impartial” network should have identified them as such.

So why can’t Tom Delay ask a question at the next Democratic debate?

But from this moment on, I will release my anger at CNN. CNN did what it did and we know what happened.

It’s now on the national Republican party to take a stand.

They don’t have the gonads. And because of this, see Tom Delay’s words above, Hillary Rodham Clinton will be our next President.

And you WILL have health insurance or you shall go to jail.

With each entry into Political Tidbits a little bit of history is recorded. So okay, maybe the two to three people a day who read this Blog would not be considered historians of note but I say a review of the past as recorded by the folks...which would be me, can reveal a lot about the culture of an era.

With a mind to my future generations who should read this online journal, I submit the following as posts of note.

Jimmy Carter was the worst president of the United States. Pay no attention to the men behind the curtains who would change history with tales of this American Man of LaMancha who charged at windmills in a misguided quest to fatten his own private diplomacy firm.

I lived through Carter's presidency and that makes me as knowledgeable as the mighty historians as to how life was with a "misery index" that was gauged ever day.

The picture on this Blog post of President Bush really upset Fox's Bill O'Reilly. Of course the pic that upset O'Reilly had Senator Joe Lieberman in the screen...well check it out for yourselves.

They say we all have a twin on the planet and I've found Nancy Pelosi's . Indeed, and Pelosi's twin was too a famous female and was too a bit of a dim bulb.

She tried to make the now dead Tookie Williams look like a teddy bear of a man although he was a cold-blooded murderer and gang leader. Here's a Blog record of Tookie's girlfriend's run for Governor of California.


True Crime-Sean Taylor, Maddie McCann and the British Woman Under Arrest in the Sudan

It's a True Crime Update and we've got some weird crimes to loosen things up.

An infant dies after a sexual assault. Let’s hope investigators are checking closely on the death of Sean Taylor. And how about that British woman under arrest for naming a teddy bear Mohammad?

New info on the Madeleine McCann case.

I Must Say That I Did Not Know This!!!

I have been driving (legally) for decades.

One would think I would have noticed the little secret

on my dash that was staring me right in the face the whole time.

I didn't and I bet you probably haven't either.

Quick question, what side of your car is your gas tank filler?
If you are anything like me, you probably can't remember right away.
My solution is to uncomfortably stick my head out the window, strain my neck and look.

If you don't do this in your own car you definitely have done it in a borrowed or rental car.

Well ladies and gentlemen, I'm going to share with you -my little secret so you will no longer look like Ace Ventura on your way to the gas station or put your neck at risk of discomfort or injury.

If you look at your gas gauge, you will see a small icon of a gas pump.
The handle of the gas pump will extend out on either the left or right side of the pump. If your tank filler is on the left, the handle will be on the left.

Pic of gas guage and how it points to where gas tank is

If your tank filler is on the right, the handle will be on the right (see photo above). It is that simple! I don't know how you feel right now but when I found out this morning I felt cheated! Why don't the dealers share such important information with car buyers?

I don't understand why this isn't in the drivers ed manual? I don't get why any mechanic I have ever been to or know has even thought of mentioning this to me?
The only possible explanation can be that all these people probably don't even know themselves!

(actually on our pickup, there is a arrow pointing to the left side of the gas tank...instead of the hose on the left side....)

Go out and share the worlds best kept auto secret with your friends

Couple Killed for $50 Debt

Daniel Tavares killed his mother 16 years ago by stabbing her to death with a carving knife. In July of this year, a Boston area judge released Tavares that he may prey on more people.

Mauck couple killed by neighbor

From the Seattle Times:
The couple, who lived in Graham, Pierce County, were found fatally shot in their home Nov. 17. On Tuesday, police arrested a neighbor, Daniel Tavares Jr., 41. He has been charged with aggravated first-degree murder in their deaths. Charging papers said the slayings followed an argument over a $50 debt.

So we have a criminal who viciously killed his own mother, from Massachusetts, a liberal heaven, who four months later viciously and cold-bloodedly killed a young couple over an alleged $50 debt. This in Washington state, another liberal heaven. Thus we must doubt that the fine Tavares will ever meet his death for this crime.

Let the liberals take over this country and this story will be an every day thing.

And God forbid they should hook this guy up to a fine solution that would stop his heart. Can’t do that. He’s a human being. We should love all human beings.

Not that Tavares’ mother wasn’t a human and not that the Mauck couple weren’t law-abiding people pursuing their happiness in this great land.

Taveres is troubled and we should give him the love.

Infant Dies After Sexual Assault

Neveah Richardson was only nine days old when her mother awoke to find the child bleeding from the mouth.

From Click on
LINCOLN PARK, Mich. -- A father in Lincoln Park is being charged with domestic violence in an incident that ended in the death of his 9-day-old daughter.

A medical examiner, however, has ruled the death a homicide and further charges might be pending as police sort through what happened the day after Thanksgiving.

NINE days old. Neveah was a helpless baby, helpless to fight back in any way the assault on her tiny body that she could not comprehend.

Neveah’s father, the fine Christopher Richardson, was arrested for beating his wife as she tried to drive the baby to the hospital. Police believe this wonderful man was involved in the assault on Neveah.

Let’s hope that just because Neveah was only 9 days old that she’s not dismissed as just a late partial-birth abortion.

When a country abandons the helpless a country loses its very soul. Let there be justice for Neveah. Let’s give Christopher Richardson a date with a needle.

In The News

I don’t have a link for the following; it came to me via email. But it all has the “sound” of a whacky truth.

A woman was reporting her car as stolen, and mentioned that there was a car phone in it.

The policeman taking the report called the phone and told the guy that answered that he had read the ad in the newspaper and wanted to buy the car. They arranged to meet, and the thief was arrested.

45 year-old Amy Brasher was arrested in San Antonio, Texas, after a mechanic reported to police that 18 packages of marijuana were packed in the engine compartment of the car which she had brought to the mechanic for an oil change.
According to police, Brasher later said that she didn't realize that the mechanic would have to raise the hood to change the oil.

David Posman, 33, was arrested recently in Providence, R.I, after allegedly knocking out an armored car driver and stealing the closest four bags of money. It turned out they contained $800 in PENNIES, weighed 30 pounds each,
and slowed him to a stagger during his getaway so that police officers easily jumped him from behind.

A Dutch veterinarian was fined 600 guilders (about $240) for causing a fire that destroyed a farm in Lichten Vourde, the Netherlands. The vet had been trying to convince a farmer that his cow was passing flatulent gas; to demonstrate, the vet ignited the gas, but the cow became a "four-legged flame-thrower" and ran wild, setting fire to bales of hay.

Damage to the farm was assessed at $80,000. The cow was unharmed.

Californian Bill Helko was thrilled when he had the winning numbers in the local lottery, the first prize being $412,000.

He straight away went and ordered a Porsche, booked a family holiday in Hawaii and had a champagne dinner with his wife and friends at an expensive Hollywood restaurant.

When he went to pick up the winnings he found that 9,097 others had also won first prize and his share of the jackpot was $45.

Mighty Religion of Peace and More Fine Islamic PR

If the idiots are not rioting over cartoons for God’s sake, we have the following:

Gillian Gibbons and teddy bear

KHARTOUM, Sudan (CNN) -- A British teacher arrested in Sudan after allowing her class to name a teddy bear "Mohammed" has been charged by authorities with offending religion, British officials say.

Gillian Gibbons, 54, is being held by police in the capital Khartoum after she asked her class of seven-year-olds to come up with a name for the toy as part of a school project, Robert Boulos, the head of Unity High School told CNN.

So okay, Gibbons is a British citizen who left Liverpool, England to go teach in the Sudan. The Sudan is not considered a paradise by any means so we must consider that Gibbons wanted to add something good to her life on earth by offering an experienced teacher to a country in need of same.

Whatever her reasons, Gibbons only wanted the class she was teaching to name a teddy bear mascot she was using as a teaching aid to teach about animals and their habitats. She alleges that it was her students who chose the name Mohammad for the teddy bear.

Gibbons has been arrested by the fine and intelligent Muslim led government of Sudan and she faces 60 lashes and/or a year in jail for “insulting” Islam. As if those Muslims own behavior isn’t enough of an insult to tell the whole world what they’re about.

The British government is, as would be expected, deeply involved in negotiating the release of its citizen.

More than likely Gibbons will be released but IF she should be punished by a lashing by the thugs in the Sudanese government, the world will lose any respect it has for mighty Great Britain.

Someone should tell the Sudanese that half of the males in Mexico are named Jesus.

What Happened to Sean Taylor?

How tragic. He died after an alleged robber shot him in the leg. Unfortunately, the bullet hit the femoral artery and Taylor essentially bled to death. His live-in girlfriend and Taylor’s daughter were not harmed. Just eight days ago, an intruder was reported in the Taylor home.

MIAMI - Washington Redskins safety Sean Taylor has died, a day after he was shot at home, said family friend Richard Sharpstein.

Sean Taylor is a young man, only 24 years old. He has a checkered past and the NFL has had a tough time controlling him.

We’ll be following this case but already I’ve got some thoughts. As do the investigators, I am sure. This alleged break-in from a week ago, the burglar supposedly left a kitchen knife on Taylor’s bed.

Odd as all get out.

Now there’s another alleged burglar and this time ONLY Taylor gets harmed?

Here’s hoping the investigators are taking a very close look at Taylor’s live-in girlfriend. Who, I hasten to add, was not harmed and neither was her daughter.

If a Crime Could Be Called Intriguing …

You have to wonder why…

A Cleveland, Ohio man has pled guilty to participating in a scheme that involved using AT&T employee passwords and identities to place false 911 calls to emergency dispatch centers.

Stuart Rosoff is facing as much as five years in prison and a US$250,000 fine after pleading guilty to charges of harassing people by tricking 911 operators into dispatching police SWAT (Special Weapons And Tactics) teams to the homes of their unsuspecting victims. Rosoff was part of a group of about 15 to 20 people who met in chat rooms and telephone party lines to exchange information on how to conduct their attacks, according to court documents.

Seems a group of cyberguys figured out this really cool way to bother people.

So they call up 911, somehow and someway disguising their phone number. They give an address, evidently of somebody they want to get even with or distract, and come up with some story that has the local cops sending out a Swat team.

For instance, I call 911 and report that I am at my neighbor’s address (the one whose dogs bark all the time and get on my nerves). I tell them I have a gun and have already killed three people in the home. I tell them I have a live hostage and I’m about to kill him or her.

The police have no choice but to respond cautiously to the call as even if my neighbor’s house is quiet with all residents sleeping peacefully, the police must assume that there’s someone inside holding a resident hostage.

Criminals. Just when one type of crime is stomped, they come up with yet another. They need lives, folks. They need happening, vibrant happy lives.

Until then, you and I must pay for their outrageous behavior.

Senior Citizens Continue to Shoot the Criminals

We reported on a Texas senior’s shoot-out with his neighbors’ burglars, HERE. Of course this was a case where a homeowner used a gun and killed two people under very questionable circumstances.

In the case below, Benito Valdez fired his weapon into the air rather than kill the would-be thieves.

From the Miami Herald:
Benito Valdez had settled in for the night security shift, listening to Spanish radio on a chair outside a Hialeah juice bar when he saw shadows coming toward him.

That's when the 71-year-old's training in the Cuban navy kicked in.

I’m all for Americans’ right to own guns but to willy-nilly go around shooting perps doesn’t impress me. Good on Benito for handling it so sanely.

Suspect in Madeleine McCann’s Disappearance Has Questionable Alibi

I knew about suspicions cast on Robert Murat as regards Madeleine McCann’s disappearance. I didn’t know that his lady friend was also a suspect.

It seems that this lady friend had an alibi but below, that alibi was seriously questioned.

Missing Madeiline McCann

From the Daily Record:
THE alibi given by the lover of Madeleine McCann suspect Robert Murat for the night she vanished looked blown apart last night.

Michaela Walczuch claimed she was at a Jehovah's Witness meeting when the four-year-old was snatched in Portugal in May.

However, a church elder claimed the organisation had kicked her out before then.

Brother Teofilo Castela said: "Michaela was thrown out.

It’s important to take all news accounts of this crime be taken with a grain of salt. Half the time it’s the McCanns THEMSELVES that are the source of the info.

Maddie McCann's mother

FOCUS ON Natalee Holloway
In May of 2005, Natalee Holloway, a recent graduate just barely of age, joined some of her school mates on a much-anticipated graduation trip to the island paradise of Aruba.

Came the time to fly back home, Natalee was nowhere to be found.

The last time Natalee was seen she was leaving with three locals, one Deepak Kalpoe and his brother Satish. Also along was Joran Vandersloot, a local kid known to frequent Aruba's night spots trolling for pretty American girls.

For two and a half year the Aruban and Dutch investigators fooled around with this case, "arresting" many suspects, including those three Aruban brats, then letting them go.

Suddenly, in November of 2007 Joran and the Kalpoe brothers are arrested. An announcement by Aruban authorities came with news of the arrests that "new and incriminating" evidence had been found.

Will justice ever come for Natalee Holloway?

Below a list of links of stories on this Blog since Natalee first went missing.

HELIO WINS ABC's "Dancing With the Stars" Fall 2007

Dance with stars logo

Quote...Life is for Dancing

Helio is a cute fellow and goodness knows he's got an alluring smile. Mel B was a way better dancer but Mel has personality issues, as I saw it.

Marie Osmond remained long enough to win the number three spot but that honor was more about Marie's pleasant personality than her dance skill. I loved it when in response to a question about whether she was bitter about a bad comment by a judge, Marie said "What's not to like? I'm almost 50, and I just did cartwheels while dancing on national TV." As I paraphrase.

She's right, of course, and it's that enthusiasm and self-deprecation that got Marie Osmond votes that her dancing would never have gleaned.

October Road...Better to Read the Book

ABC's Home Page for "October Road

October Road Montage

Nick Garrett is an author who wrote a best-selling novel about the people of his home town with the improbable name of Knights Ridge.

He comes back after a ten year separation; ten years during which he had no contact with the folks in his home town as his novel tended to reflect them in a most unflattering light.

Well right there I've got a plot I don't believe. First, I've written ten books about characters in my life and nobody cares enough to read about them. I have great doubt that any novel about a rather boring town named Knights Ridge would gain any best-selling status, particularly if the characters in this ABC series named "October Road"...the reason for that name eludes me...are any indication of their personalities.

It's not that the folks depicted on this series are bad people. They're not even boring people except if you're watching them on a busy night, allocating an hour of a precious life to watch a show filled with very ordinary life drama.

First, this Nick guy...nope, no thrills there, no hidden greatness, no still waters running deep. The guy is just not that interesting is what I'm saying here. Yes, he likes Hannah, a character from his past who happens to have a son that Nick suspects might be his. Well I don't believe this either.

If Hannah had a baby by a guy with a best-selling novel and didn't sue him to high heaven for child support...well how believable is this? The constant question as to the paternity of the boy might add an element to the drama but that doesn't mean the viewing audience believes it.

The other characters in this series, an episode I watched on Monday 11/26/07, hey, they're nice, sweet people. But they're hardly the stuff to carry a drama series for any length of time.

The barkeep at the local watering hole is all excited to be dating a former football hero and well-known ladies' man. Yes, I understand all about dating and guys who I considered out of my league suddenly importing me into their league...that kind of thing.

But it was barely better than getting a root-canal as we watched Janet Meadows bite her nails with the anxiety of hooking up with the town football hero. First he pays attention to other ladies, then he sweet talks Janet that it doesn't mean anything. Then they grapple with just how they should announce their "relationship" to the world.

It was like watching paint dry.

The rest of the plot was just as dreary. Nick and some buddies break into a college office to find a manuscript of Aubrey, a girl who has Nick's eye. Hannah sits outside of Nick's father's house early in the morning, just to tell Nick that she won't be seeing him on a romantic basis. Nick's father had to tell him to go outside because for whatever oddball reason, Hannah didn't knock.

And then there's the nut who is having a love affair with his TV. The TV even has a name...Jason! Seems he is a recluse but now we have a sweet young thing trying to coax him back into the world.

I'm not going to bother watching this show again but I don't know, if there's a craft to be done, a meal to be cooked, some web surfing needing to be done...this show might be a nice background, requiring only an occasional nod.

For now, I have no idea what TV viewing demographic this show would appeal to.
Maybe teenage females?

Pic of rose taken from garden on Thanksgiving day 2007

It’s November of 2007 here in Serendipity Shore. On Thanksgiving morn, I plucked the above rose out of my gardens. Thanksgiving in this year of our Lord, fell on 11/22/07.

I think that’s very amazing. I can’t remember ever having a rose beyond mid-October in any of my gardens that had a rose bush.

That’s it. We call it the Thanksgiving Rose and it has inspired me to write about it for my annual Christmas fiction story.
