I came here to post stupid Photoshops and chicken blog, and I’m all out of stupid Photoshops

That’s it. It’s official. My brain has vapor-locked. I am now so full of rage and despair I am literally incapable of tweezing out a single off-pissing outrage to post about today.

Some think A scandal was released to distract from B scandal, and C scandal was leaked to kill B scandal, and D scandal was…what the hell are we up to now, N scandal? I think, probably not. Because they all boil down to one scandal: the government has grown incalculably huge, mighty, incompetent, partisan and, apparently, invulnerable and we — you and I, dear readers — are its natural enemies.

Most of the foot soldiers on our side of the fight are acting like the NSA is holding something juicy over their heads and demanding they act stupid.

That’s not a real accusation.

Well, except Lindsey Graham. I bet they have an awesome file on Miss Lindsey.

So I’m going to sit over here and chicken blog until the fog clears a little. Join me, won’t you? Or pick a scandal and bitch about it. Either one is good.

The picture is a turtle. And I stole it. And I didn’t even alter it much.

You know the scandal that bothers me the most?
The way European McDonald’s charge you for ketchup packets.

I’m OUTRAGED!!!!!!

I just can’t even pay attention to the US Gov’t ones. I mean, we watched Chicago-Machine politics take over Washington from 09-2012 and yet, people still voted for Give Me Free Stuff 2012.

They do? They don’t in Britain. Actually, they don’t give you ketchup packets, there’s a spigot and a little paper cup. We go to Mickey D’s once a week for a treat.

Obama won by the free-shit army, massive voter fraud, and a lot of help from his buds in Silicon Valley. Google set up a war room for them. Then,he had the brown shirt goons from the IRS intimidating opposition and their donors.
I suspect some NSA was involved too. Remember Maxine Waters saying this about Barry’s little program ….specifically that Obama put it in place…


Oh, and the media, who are in his ideological camp.

I despair. If ‘our own side’ (WTF that means) is too purblind, too stupid and too reflexively authoritarian to understand that the government (US and UK) has been caught actively conspiring against the people it is meant to serve, then, frankly, we either push them off the sledge too, or we just give up.

Let me put this in simple language. It does not matter a flying one who or what leaked what the Obama junta has been doing. Even if the leaker was a transvestite Martian paedophile, with a freshly stamped communist party membership card endorsed by Obama Bin Laden, Lon Chaney Jnr and Senator M. Mouse, the fact is that both the US and UK governments have been caught red-handed in a conspiracy against their own citizens.

That is all we need to know and the trials should commence forthwith.

And seeing how everyone in D.C., no matter which side of the aisle they are on, are not challenging him. Nothing but crickets. He must have the goods on all of them.
Though, the GOP didn’t like tea partiers either. That would explain why there is no special prosecutor.

Quite so, beasn. Obama won by 4%.

So…fraud + tea party intimidation = who knows what percent? More than 4, at a guess.

Uncle B, who will do the prosecuting when – at least over here – the Depart. of Justice are the criminals and the judges are sought and bought?

Don’t worry…the government debt is going to implode the economy eventually.

It’s the same here too, beasn. In fact, in the case of the UK, the chief prosecutor is an ultra-Left winger appointed by an avowedly socialist government.

One of the greatest indictments against our faux-conservative PM, Cameron, is that he hasn’t been sacked.

It’s hard not to conclude that both our countries have a single party that shows whichever face it chooses to win a phoney election.

Rather terrifying in the U.S. these days. A few days ago Rush admitted we’ve been overthrown. Beck says something has to happen in the next 24-36 hours if we’re AT LEAST going to save the Constitution, and Levin is at war with the RINOs who once clamored to be on his show and are now giving him the cold shoulder. Exhibit A: Paul Ryan.

I find it helps if you realize the republic is past saving. All the scandals do is demonstrate how right you are. Its too late, our last, desperate, foolish hope was for Obama to lose this last election. Foolish and desperate because Romney almost certainly would have done the same thing, or at least not done enough to reverse it.

Its over. Done. The US is just gasping on the bank of the river of liberty now, its last breaths wheezing on the pages of newspapers and on the screen of your TV.

Once you reach that point, the scandals and stuff just don’t bother you any more. Its no less than you expect.

Stoaty and Uncle B, despair not. I’m sure you have cousins in the Republic of Texas who will vouch for your admission there. Those same cousins will be providing space for me and hubby.

I am with Christopher. So I refer to these times as “The Downfall Of The Republic”. Anything I do to save the Republic would probably be futile.

So I all try to do is Isaiah’s job.

It helps to control my rage.

Deputy Director, Oceania. If you’re pretending to be rational, you need to be accurate.

Said Deputy Director was the guy who did all the editing of the talking points about Benghazi, while then-Director Dave Petraus was looking at copies of embarrassing emails and such.

Replaced by a lawyer from the White House with ZERO intelligence experience. A fixer, in other words.

Suzy “Will Lie For Promotion” Rice had a hand in it, I’d bet.

I’d like to know how many people ever heard of a vapor lock? Much less know what it means. Or how to fix it.

I do. So that gives away my age, I guess.

Meanwhile, can’t we hatch a plan to counter act these btards?

Stoaty, I’ve only been in a McD’s in Holland and they charged me for ketchup.
I was OUTRAGED!!!!

That was nearly 30 years ago so maybe they’ve changed.

It is called tomato sauce …. simple huh?

Something for Stoaty from Lord Monckton http://www.wnd.com/2013/06/obama-identity-fraud-the-net-closes-in/

Yes, vapourware – you too can block IPs etc etc however you also block the innocent … bit like a drone strike, you never hit your intended target.

I remember vapor lock, Tom. It’s when a plug of vaporized fuel blocks the flow of liquid fuel, isn’t it? It’s what happens when you abuse the choke on startup. Or am I confusing it with flooding?

My favorite comment spam from this morning:

Excellent Web-internet site! I needed to request if I might web pages and use a part of the internet net site and use a number of variables for just about any faculty process. Make sure you inform me via electronic mail regardless of whether that would…

That you, grandma?

Does it count if I used to know what vapor lock was? I do remember a can of compressed ether sprayed somewhere under the hood (its high volatility ridding the locked bits of water vapor) was a quick remedy.

Some of the Mercedes of the mid-1970s, the SLs with a tightly packed engine compartment that included the catalytic converter (!), used to experience vapor lock. The solution was to let it cool or to spray water on the fuel lines, so AliceH’s remedy sounds like it would work too.

Nice spam, Stoaty!

“…if I might…use a number of variables for just about any faculty process” sounds especially intriguing. By all means, give them permission! 😉

RE: scandals – Recall what happened in Europe after the Great (economic) Depression. And what was going on just before….

Those ol’ Chebby 235 sixes had the fuel line running right over the front of the block, just above the water pump & in front of (& some times touching) the valve cover. On a hot summer day you could hear my screams of frustration for miles.

When you have this many government scandals, it’s time to start referring to them by what this really is: A crime wave.
