Happy Hallowe’en, everyone!

Our clocks change Sunday, so I get an extra hour’s sleep Monday.

What? Yes, yes…I know I’m unemployed, but I do actually have to be someplace Monday. I’m applying for my National Insurance Number (the Limey version of the Social Security Number). They make me do it in person. With a buttload of documentation. In Maidstone.

I saw a great status message on FB the other day. It went along the lines of “I want to remind all my democrat friends to get out there and vote vote VOTE on November 3rd.”

Looks like she’s wearing a skeleton costume under that jacket.

i’ve already started the weekend push to vote. I also have planned on trying to convince my progressive “friends” to stay home..

That’s easy, J2 — tell them staying home is the only way they can send a message to Obama that he hasn’t done enough for his base.

Oh good lord… Moveon.organ has a photo contest going on. They want people to send pictures of themselves holding a sign saying “You can’t stomp on me”, in reference to the twit that charged Rand Paul’s motorcade and tried to assault him with her sign and stick. Of COURSE, she was TOTALLY innocent, and only wanted to show her sign to him….

I have a request in on the cornfield for one of the pshop gurus there to make up a pic of squeaky fromme holding the moveon sign, but I think it would be alot of fun if the p-shopers here joined in too.

Waddia think, anyone here up for the challenge? 😉

It doesn’t even have to be squeaky fromme, it could be patty hearst or any other terrorist woman…….

Scuba – don’t stomp on me – that’s the actual slogan?

What idiots – they should say “Don’t tread on me” and use the tea party flag. It would be ironic as all get out.

what idiots.

I shit you not, OldCat. They want people to submit pics of themselves holding a sign saying “You can’t stomp on me, Republicans!”….

Personally, I’d rather piss on their heads, but there you go…

I was going to put on my Gene Simmons makeup and head out to the bar for a Hallowe’en shindig, but an unfortunate encounter with a bottle of Nicaraguan rum last night has substantially dimmed my enthusiasm for such a project. ‘Fragile’ would perhaps be the best description of my current state.

I’m of the political persuasion which makes Genghis Khan look like a pinko-liberal wimp.
We, both the USA and the UK, need some “Atten-HUT” and some discipline and backbone being re-installed in the population.
We all need to start taking responsibility for our own actions, the Courts, which piss other people’s money away, need to learn that SHIT HAPPENS. Just because you slipped on a piece of fruit-peel does not give you the right to stiff some poor sucker for squillions.
Get used to it!
I don’t want the STATE to tend me, I’m grown-up; I am quite capable of looking after myself. If there are those who have reached adulthood without Darwin having intervened, then, fine, look after them. But LEAVE ME ALONE.

The States rights movement seems to be gathering steam in the past few months. A challenge to the interstate commerce overreach might be the unintended consequence of Obamacare. There is some chance under the current court of a rollback. THAT would almost make the last 10 years worthwhile

Don’t get your hopes up.

Until and unless either a Supreme Court decision or a Constitutional Amendment reverses Wickard v. Filburn, it’s all making water upwind.


Comment from Scott Jacobs
Time: October 31, 2010, 4:36 pm

Yeah Ric, but the SCotUS overturning Wickard v Filburn isn’t all the out of the question – Justice Thomas has been pushing for such an action for years and years, and has actually been making some progress.

At the vest least, the notion of a 10th Amendment gets mentioned now, which is better than we were getting.

Comment from Ric Locke
Time: October 31, 2010, 4:46 pm

Scott: I’ll believe it when I see it. You do realize, do you not, that reversing Wickard would make three-quarters of the Federal Government unConstitutional?

Social activists on both sides would scream. At least the Saudi Arabians have the honesty to label their version “Committee for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice.” Our bunch sticks with euphemisms, but they all want the power to do exactly that.

I didn’t say it was going to happen next term, or even in the next few years…

But it is getting more attention than it was. It is, at the least, a start.

Congress pick:

245/190 R/D
48/52 R/D

Angle wins vs Dingy Harry (yay!)
Toomey Wins
Sestak wins

Miller wins (AK Sen vs Skeeza Murkastowianski)

Obama throws crap around and cries a LOT when he realises he sucks and everyone knows it. When he realises he sucks like a giant douchenozzle, the crying rises to sound like a Rolls Royce Trent jet engine taxi-ing for takeoff. Sad. But funny.

Carly Fiorina loses, boo, but HP still make good laptops, and Barbara Boxer doesn’t

Ooh, by the way, you know what is a 100% stone-cold burn on the Obama camp now? It’s that whole stinky democracy crap. His team of argyle-wearing Poindexters is sitting around right now going, “man, we already psyched out those dickheads one time and it cost us $200 million. You mean we have to do it again? Aww, man, that sucks. Why won’t these hayseeds just stay fucking bought, like normal Democrats?”

Ooooohhhh…hey, that’s a great idea, Gillies — a contest for the nearest guess on the makeup of the 212th Congress.

I’ve never done football picks or anything (I missed out on the sports gene) — how are these things done? Nearest pick Congress/Senate? How would you calculate that with two different houses?

Comment from Some Vegetable

How would you calculate that with two different houses?

How about adding the over/unders together? The person with the lowest total number wins.

So, in the house, let’s say you miss by 20 (doesn’t matter if you’re high or low) and in the senate you miss by 3.

Your number is 23. Anyone who misses by 22 beats you. even if they were off by 10 the house but 12 in the senate.

Perhaps a special prize for who ever comes closest in both races – say a second draw in the death pool?

Thank you, Some Veg. I’ve never understood how the over/under thing works.

I was thinking of giving out the usual. Like, “vote as though your dicks were on the line” or “send a message to the biggest dick in politics.”

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
