Wow... just... wow....
And here I thought DWS was the biggest liar his week. Thank you President Obama for upping the level of fiction emenating from your administration. True leadership, I tell ya!
Well...it's taken all summer to get here, but the Labor Day holiday is finally upon is. Have a nice weekend and don't do anything stupid, especially if the cops are about.
Feel free to post what you like, by the way...
So not only are we giving the enemy enough time to move all their weaponry into secure locations, days in advance of the planned attack / maybe / gosh I dunno / we'll get back to you, while all this is going on Russia is moving and and our allies are quickly dropping their support.
The UK pulled its support as their people mounted strong protests against attacking Syria and the French, after screaming like they were ready to "punish" Syria for chemical bombings, are now slowly backtracking towards the the fork in the road that pointed to the tore up street labeled "Political Solutions".
Meanwhile the UN is still over in Syria trying to figure out what the US and Israel already deemed unquestionable and whether or not it requires action on their end. Don't hold your breathe waiting for any answers anytime soon. Just saying.
Red lines have been crossed, war is on the brink and the people that sounded so adament about beating down Syria's doors mere days ago are having to replan their attack.... that or they're trying to figure out how to back out of this Syria situation too with minimal political reprocusions thanks to empty threats and damning rhetoric on the part of this entire administration.
Thread is open... bomb's away.
I couldn't help but laugh at this photo of President Obama visiting a heavy equipment company to talk about jobs, tuition or something else that enables him and his supporters to remain somewhat oblivious to tensions overseas.
See if you can identify the humorous part:

Hoping to improve the Catholic Church's outreach (I guess), Pope Francis has been making prank phone calls to strangers. I suppose that is no more unusal than cats playing an electric keyboard...
No, neither the Pope nor the cats have anything to do with each other--I just liked the tune. Have a nice weekend and post what you like.
Western and Southern Illinois... take note:
(NEWSER) – At least four rural Colorado counties will vote Nov. 5 on whether to make "Northern Colorado" the 51st state. Fed up with what they see as a lack of representation in Denver, Weld County yesterday became the largest county to get on board, after its commissioners voted to place the referendum on its fall ballot; Cheyenne, Sedgwick, and Yuma counties will do the same, theWashington Times reports. Voters will be asked whether they want their counties to "pursue becoming the 51st state of the United States of America?" That state would potentially be comprised of 11 counties—the other seven are still considering the referendum, ABC Denver reports. But a "yes" vote would still leave a number of hurdles to clear.
Here's a map of the proposed state:
When I signed up with Verizon, I didn't realize I was also enrolled in the NSA's 'share everything' plan, but I suppose all phone services provide this perk. Anyone who has been following Edward Snowden's odyssey, of course, is well aware of the National Security Agency's fetish for snooping into Americans' private conversations, but it would seem that many of these little eavesdropping occurrences were ILLEGAL!
Then again, our friends in government remind us that this active listening is for our own safety. Have a nice weekend and post what you like. No doubt, someone's listening...
Now if I could just bum a ride from somebody to Pierce, NE next month...
Caught this on NBC news last night. Blew my mind that I hadn't heard about this the past couple weeks (hmmm... maybe I AM working too much). What's being called the holy grail of antique cars is set to go up for auction Saturday September 28th, 2013. (Take a look at those photos)
Just to quickly fill you in on the story, Lambrecht Motors was a new car dealer in the middle of Nowhere, NE that took in trades, then tucked the trade-ins away to keep used cars off the market and limit the car shoppers with two options: buy new or drive far away to look at used cars. Doesn't sound like a pain today with sites like websites like Ebay, AutoTrader, CarMax, etc... but it's another story entirely if you're talking about driving an hour or better each time you want to kick some tires.
As times changed, so did the business model, but for 50 years Lambrecht Motors stood as a store front for a gold mine and very few people knew about it. Secluded with the giant inventory of used cars sat new cars that never sold and collector cars like a '78 Corvette coupe (25th anniversay) with 5 miles on it, hidden away like an ugly family secret, or more like a time capsule just waiting to be opened...
Skip forward to 2013 and it's the talk of every mechanic, dealer and car enthusiast. The time capsule has been cracked wide open and the family is ready to sell every single content... and everybody that's anybody in the world of car collectors will be watching (and bidding away).
For those that care:

More terror in the skies, and no doubt Janet Reno would be telling us "the system worked" if she were still with the Office of Homeland Security...
Have a nice weekend and feel free to post what you like.
Off all the things that make big news these days...
Despite city and university officials best efforts to cut down on the partying throughout campus, the University of Iowa has captured the top spot as America's Top Party School. They've gotten increasingly closer and closer to the top spot over the years and now they've finally pulled it off. Finally... the U of I... #1 in the nation.
Now I'm sure some are likely some very proud people (students) with this little bit of news, while others are probably nervous as all hell (parents, deans, grad assistants, etc.)

1. University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa
2. University of California, Santa Barbara, Santa Barbara, Calif.

On the flip side, much to very little surprise, BYU was ranked as the most "Stone-Cold Sober" school in America for 2013.
Looking for any blue sky in this dismal gray Obama weather pattern, I found this
On most fronts, what the Quisling-in-Chief fails to accomplish is a plus for this republic.
But because of these setbacks to his collectivist agenda, I do anticipate more Il Duce-like attempts to subvert the role of Congress via the use of executive orders. Will Congress have the will to fight that abuse? Time will tell.
