Who do I want for President in 2016?

You didn’t actually ask, but I’m a telling ya anways.election2016

I’m hoping someone will appear that is a cross of: Cruz’s passion, Paul’s take on personal liberties, Ryan’s math/budget sense, the foreign & defensive policies of Cthulhu and Lieberman’s ability to reach across the aisles and actually get folks to compromise when there’s a common sense goal to be reached.

I know it’s a dream……  But it’s a Mother Beautiful dream.

Site maintenance will be going on this weekend.

I plan to be doing some upgrade work on The POTR site this Sat/Sun.  More that likely that means I’ll repeatedly break it in an attempt to make it better.  Hey, but that’s usually how IT projects go.

Daedalus Weeps

Someone is handing out free glasses full of stupid in the District of Colombia.

RE: Boehner: Obama is an ‘anti-war president’

RE: Hillary supporters warn reporter against using ‘sexist’ terms: Polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, inevitable, entitled, over confident…

RE: Indiana now a ‘right to discriminate’ state—and what that means

RE: Obama aide compares coverage of Netanyahu relationship to ‘Dr. Phil’

It’s got to be something in the District of Colombia’s water supply. Maybe the entire Federal Government should be moved to 20 miles north of Belle Fourche South Dakota, the geographic center of the United States, until such time as it’s determined what is the root cause, and cure for, the DNCRNC brain melting virus. It’s virulent. A travel advisory should be issued for all those passing though, working in, or in the proximity of, the Capital Beltway.

Kipling: The Power of the Dog

THERE is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
And when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters, I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart for a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years which Nature permits
Are closing in asthma, or tumour, or fits,
And the vet’s unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers or loaded guns,
Then you will find – it’s your own affair, –
But … you’ve given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will,
With its whimper of welcome, is stilled (how still!),
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone – wherever it goes – for good,
You will discover how much you care,
And will give your heart to a dog to tear!

We’ve sorrow enough in the natural way,
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent,
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we’ve kept ‘em, the more do we grieve;
For, when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short-time loan is as bad as a long –
So why in – Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?

Bigyan mo ako ng iyong pera dahil dito kami upang tumulong. Pasusuhin.

Fed and state taxes paid. My blood boils…………. Not because I have to pay taxes but because every time I take a small step ahead towards a stable financial future it appears my “fair share” seems to double while services provided by those I’m paying are cut in half. Frak “Audit the Fed” I say “Audit it ALL”. I feel like I was just drunk rolled in an Olongapo City alleyway by a roving band of progressive politicians.

All this moaning about how Side A is looking out for the middle class and Side B is against the middle class is all just marketing crap.  The middle class just gets screwed.  Bot Side A/B only want two things from the middle class:  obedient votes and taxes to give to others for either future electoral job security, or  a sense of accomplishment in giving away other peoples hard earned money to social hyped causes that generate nothing of worth and nobody even cares if they do.

Yes.  I feel ripped off that my hard work, the more I achieve, gets me punished and feeds more funding to politicians to buy more power and job security with my money by giving not-at-all-“free” shit to people who don’t deserve my money at all.  No, I’m not rolling in the dough either.  I’m not over any magical arbitrary income line the politicians like to toss about as greedy people who need to contribute more.  I’m just a middle class schlep that looses half of any gain I make in my financial status to jackasses in State and Federal building spending on irresponsible pork barrel crap and aimless generational loser bet social feel good nonsensical progressive self righteous pet projects.

It’s raining today.  Guess I’ll have to pay more to my fraking Rain Tax this year!  Thanks Ex-Gov O’Malley.  Magkantot sa iyo, you POS!
