Harold Ramis dead at 69 of complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis
Harold Ramis, the man behind numerous blockbuster films such as Ghostbusters and Groundhog’s Day,…
He was 85.
A true comedy genius, he passed away at the age of 91.
The former child star and diplomat has passed away at age of 85.
It’s not enough that our Prez is working hard to destroy this country. He has to make it easier for other tyrants to destroy the rest of the world, too.
Last week, the White House released a photo of our Prez talking on the phone with Russian Prez Putin. It was a rather foolhardy effort to make our Prez look tough. But as usual, it failed spectacularly.
Reportedly, this call lasted 90 minutes. This is how I imagine the call went.
BO: Hey Vlad, how’s things?
VP: Hallo comrade! Things are good, very good. Enjoyed some time in Sochi and now going to enjoy some time in The Crimea. And what about you? Taking another vacation?
BO: Really thinking about it right now. Listen, about Crimea… Um, would you mind just holding off for a bit?
VP: Why, Obamushka?
BO: Look, I’m out of red lines and some people expect me to come up with one.
VP: Red line? Is this new drug, like ecstasy?
BO: I wish… I don’t want to hurt your feelings, but the thing is, you going to Crimea looks like an act of war to some people, and frankly, I am trying my damnedest to get rid of OUR military right now, and you are making the argument to keep OUR military at current levels here. You have to work with me!
VP: I have to work with you?? Do I have to remind you who is my bitch here, Obamushka?
VP: Good. Now, be a good cyka and keep rattling the saber. Your supporters still believe in you to transform your country. Just as my supporters believe in me to transform mine, da? Now, I have to go. My jackboots just came back from being shined.
Why so short a call? Putin probably kept Obama on hold for 80 minutes.
“NROL-39 is represented by the octopus, a versatile, adaptable, and highly intelligent creature. Emblematically, enemies of the United States can be reached no matter where they choose to hide,” said Karen Furgerson, a spokeswoman for the NRO. “‘Nothing is beyond our reach’ defines this mission and the value it brings to our nation and the warfighters it supports, who serve valiantly all over the globe, protecting our nation.”
Cthulhu was unavailable for comment.
Tonight is the last of the debates between Governor Romney and Prez Obama. As usual, Matt Drudge nails it:
Even if you were to sweep that off as just unfortunate, you also have to contend with this:
Don’t think that was just unfortunate timing and/or mistakes done on the ground. That’s the icing that several dictators are licking as they endorse Prez Obama. Just ask Putin, Chavez, and Castro. No, don’t bother with the Nork Dork. He’s too busy watching musicals and threatening South Korea to bother endorsing anyone over here. But the Prez can always blame the Afghanistan deaths on BusHitlerHalliburton or something.
Even the UN Dude for Counterterrorism and Human Rights (no, I’m not making that title up. Well, just the “Dude” part) has actually come out and WARNED the citizens of the US to NOT vote for Romney, because waterboarding!!!ELEVENTY111!!! And just to make sure that the conservatives do not cheat, the UN is sending some international poll watchers to you know, keep an eye out for disenfranchisement, like enforcing the law. That’s great foreign policying right there.
Truth be told, and I know I don’t have to say it, but the best summation of Prez Obama’s foreign policy comes down to one word: Benghazi.
Let us hope that nail is driven into the coffin until the wood splinters.

It is with mixed feelings that I hear this story. Having spent my time in the combat zone (as has Mr. Aggie), this move is bittersweet. First, it means our boys and girls in uniform will not be maimed or killed in Iraq. Second, it also means there is a vacuum, sure to be filled by Shiite’s with leanings toward Iran. (When I was in Iraq several years ago, there were certain groups that did not want us to leave…ever.)
And let us not forget the Kurds up north who want their own country. Why is that important…think Turkey, and I am not talking about the Thanksgiving bird! Turkey has already been running raids into northern Iraq, and the Kurds are some of the most bad ass fighters I have ever served with in combat. The Arabs…not so much.
I have to admit: naming military operations can be decidedly tricky. Some, like Operation Desert Storm sound majestic and pretty much sum up the purpose of the campaign. Others, like Operation Menu (which was the bombing of Cambodia during the Vietnam War) bear no relation to the actual campaign, and fall very short of being a good descriptor. There are some that take description of the operation way too far, like Russia’s Operation Forcing Georgia to Peace, which as we all know was total bullshit anyway, and should have been named Operation Push Georgia Into Defending Itself. Commie bastards….
Anyway, in the days following the attacks of 9/11, Neal Boortz was talking about the coming war, and the possible names of the operations that would be talking place. The names that were being bandied about fell short in Hubby’s estimation:
Me: Well, what would you call it, then?
Hubby: I would call it Operation Smoking Crater. Or if you want subtle, Operation Desert Glass.
Me: Ooooh… much better.
Names should strike as much fear as the actual physical operation, in my humble opinion. I want the terrorists to have a bowel movement when they hear something like Operation Killemall. Or better yet, Operation Moms Are Pissed.
What operation names can you come up with??

Most people do not know or have heard about Robin Sage. It is THE end and THE beginning of a Special Forces soldier’s life. The end because it is the culminating exercise and the beginning, because then you get assigned to a group and a team. There have been deaths to SF soldiers during this exercise due to miscommunications with local law enforcement. Hence the notice and coordination being done now. This is also a reason why you would have to be an IDIOT to try and invade North Carolina!!!
This is a video from the 2009 Robin Sage:
I have to admit, I am really enjoying the Occupy-Wall-Street-But-Over-At-Zucotti-Park protests. I am happy about them for two main reasons. First, they have every right to exercise their freedom of assembly and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. I find it hialrious that they are addressing Wall Street instead of Pennsylvania Avenue, but it’s their right. Second, by protesting, they reveal their true colors. For instance, take a look at this video:
Calling for a violent overthrow of the bourgeoisie. That’s just one clip. Now take what happened to our blogger friend, Snarky Basterd. Snarky has a Twitter account, and this is what he got as a response from an OWS protester:
If you had doubts about the so-called peaceful protest, they should be gone now. This is a threat of physical harm to any and all people of not just a certain “race”, but those who actually differ in opinion from the protester. Stalin talked this way. Mao talked this way. Hitler probably didn’t. He let his minions do the talking. But the really psychopathic thing of it all, is the protester himself. Not long after Snarky spread the tweet around, @MrHortonscycles changed his moniker. Like any female, I was overcome with curiosity, so I traced him to his new moniker, and found this:
Yes, he misspelled the “socialist” part. He claims that Twitter didn’t allow for that many characters, oblivious to the fact that he did use all the letters in the word, just in the wrong order. I laughed at first, because he has threats posted to pretty much everyone who calls him out. But then I sobered up to the fact that this guy actually believes he doesn’t say threatening things. That is far more dangerous, because he has no morals to guide his reasoning. His ilk will be happy to lay waste to anyone who gets in his way, as long as he gets his way. What he doesn’t understand is, he is the fodder the Left will use to get their way. He is nothing but a useful, idiotic, sacrificial sheep to the altar of Marxism.
He doesn’t seem to grasp that we are getting ready. We will not back down. And our version of “gun control” is to hit center mass.
Thanks also to Conservative Hideout 2.0 for the call to arms, as it were
In honor of those who have died protecting our liberties.
In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie,
In Flanders fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
For the brave men and women who died while in service to this great country.

I’ve watched a couple of this guy’s videos and I really like the way he makes his points.
From Fox News:
Usama bin Laden is dead, multiple sources confirm to Fox News.
President Obama is expected to deliver a statement from the White House Sunday night to discuss the major development.
Sources said bin Laden was killed by a U.S. bomb a week ago. The U.S. had been waiting for the results of a DNA test to confirm his identity.
The announcement comes nearly a decade after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks which started a tireless hunt for the terrorist mastermind and Al Qaeda leader.
Osama Bin Laden was asked to surrender by US troops before he was shot dead, Fox News is quoting intelligence sources as saying.
The terrorist leader had always said he would not be captured alive.
Bin Laden was shot dead during a raid by US ground troops on a compound in Pakistan. His body was captured by the Americans.
The troops landed in four helicopters. One of the helicopters suffered mechanical failure and was destroyed by the Americans. However none of the American soldiers were killed.
One of Bin Laden’s sons was also killed in
An adult son of bin Laden, and a woman used as human shield, were also killed in operation, according to NBC, which reported that two helicopters were used to attack a compound in Pakistan where bin Laden was hiding.
They were led to the fortress-like three-story building after more than four years tracking one of bin Laden’s most trusted couriers, whom U.S. officials said was identified by men captured after the September 11, 2001 attacks.
