At The Risk Of Burning In Hell ...

Why is it these people always see Jesus in the Rorschach?
Couple says image of Jesus appears in Walmart receipt
Web Staff, KDVR Denver

Anderson County, S.C. -- An image of Jesus has shown up in another unlikely place, at least in the eyes of an engaged couple from Anderson County, S.C.

Jacob Simmons and his fiancée, Gentry Lee Sutherland, say they bought some pictures at Walmart.

A few days later, the receipt was on the kitchen floor of Sutherland's apartment when Simmons says he saw that it had changed. [link]
Here's the receipt:


Personally, I think it's Grigori Rasputin.

Or Cat Stevens.

Yosemite Sam?

Moses?

Cat urine?

Predictable

How disappointed the world's environmentalists must be:


The concept is so ... right. How is it that nobody can invent an electric car that costs less than your home and can travel further than the ten-minute trip to the grocery store before requiring a six-hour charge?

Where's Hollywood when we need it?

Maybe I Should Rethink My NRA Divorce

I won't. But the following makes me see that my former favorite 2nd Amendment organization is still there fighting the good fight:
NRA Takes on the United Nations
By Chris Cox, writing in Town Hall

Last week I went to New York to attend a meeting that should concern every gun owner and freedom-loving American in this great nation.

NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre and I attended a committee meeting at United Nations headquarters to send a simple, unequivocal message to the international bureaucrats who want to eliminate your right to keep and bear arms: An international Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) that in any way, shape or form affects the constitutional rights of American gun owners is completely unacceptable.

NRA will make no compromise on this critical issue. [link]
NRA to U.N.:

1) Do whatever you want to do.

2) Kiss my ass after having done so.

I do love these guys.


If only they didn't act like frightened children when it comes to political endorsements at election time.

Of Course It Does

What a shocker:


A White House that will never cut anything, never recognize any cap that is placed on its profligate spending, and doesn't have the first clue as to what balance even means would surely be opposed to restraint.

Maybe when the country is in ruins they'll change their minds.

Maybe.

Why Not

In a perverse sort of way, this does make sense:

"Ratings agency Moody's on Monday suggested the United States should eliminate its statutory limit on government debt to reduce uncertainty among bond holders."

Is there a real difference between drawing a (spending) line in the sand - only to redraw it seventy-four times (just since 1962) when more money is needed than is in the coffers - and not having a line at all?

Probably after six modifications to the line beyond which the United States government must never, ever cross are implemented, the debt ceiling line becomes a bit of a joke.

As are those who insist on redrawing it but know they need not pay attention to it.

Quote of the Day

This from the most fiscally irresponsible administration in U.S. history:

"The Administration strongly opposes H.R. 2560, the 'Cut, Cap and Balance Act of 2011.' Neither setting arbitrary spending levels nor amending the Constitution is necessary to restore fiscal responsibility."

In truth, it would only require a president who was committed to fiscal responsibility for the United States government to become fiscally responsible.

Because we don't have one, and because the administration has gone beyond irresponsibility and into recklessness, these measures are indeed necessary.

Anyone in the Obama administration who talks about fiscal responsibility is a clown.  Nothing more.

Johnny Come Lately

For how many years now have we conservatives talked about America's debt problem being a dangerous problem?

Lots and lots?

That's why this kind of stuff - in a way - is amusing:


Liberals haven't given two squirts about our debt until now. When they're told by the GOP that they won't be able to run up any more of it.

NOW IT'S A CRISIS.

Too funny.
