Asleep at the Wheel

8 Sep

As usual. I haven’t much for today. Who am I kidding??

I never have anything for this blog.

Here’s to hoping we’re not the gecko ๐Ÿ™‚

UPDATE [Jazz]

You can’t say “Asleep at the Wheel” and not start grooving… I couldn’t choose, so you get both. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Why do I not want to do a damn thing today besides read political blogs?
    I need a life.

  6. LC Aggie Sith September 8, 2011 at 10:01 am #

    SD, that’s understandable, since the debate was last night.

    Perry stammers quite a bit.

  9. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 10:33 am #

    CB, I was just thinking that the Chicago Mafia/Political scene is about to be mowed down by the Texas political monster.

    Ought to be fun to watch. For Perry not being much of a debater (my thoughts), he did quite well last night. And yeah, I noticed the stammer a couple of times, but it wasn’t prevalent enough to hurt.

  10. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 10:45 am #

    SD, I thought the debate was very interesting. With the possible exception of Huntsman, Santorum (sp.??) and Paul, I think any of last night’s debate participants would be EASILY better POTUS than Captain 3-putt.

  11. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 10:46 am #

    I’m thinking Herman Cain would make a hell of a Secretary of Commerce.

    Being in the middle of dealing with GEICO right now, I truly appreciate that picture, Ags! (Why is it that kids get in wrecks when you are thousands of miles from home?)

    Sent it on to hubs and DD#2, who will appreciate the laugh…..

  13. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX September 8, 2011 at 10:48 am #

    And other people might think that Perry stammered a lot, but I would like to see him and Obama in a debate where O doesn’t have the crutch of a teleprompter and/or an earpiece. We all know who would stammer more in that face-off…..

  14. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 10:51 am #

    I can see the headlines now on a Perry vs. Obama debate: The Hammer vs. The Stammer. Ha!

  15. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 10:51 am #

    I like Michelle Bachmann but what was the story of her hair last night? Damn.

  16. LC Aggie Sith September 8, 2011 at 10:57 am #

    Did it look bad, CB? Like just-out-of-bed?

  17. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 11:08 am #

    agges, it looked like someone had sprayed it with a 55 gallon drum of hair spray.

  18. LC Aggie Sith September 8, 2011 at 11:12 am #

    Well, maybe it was a liberal hair stylist ๐Ÿ˜‰

  19. MCPO Airdale September 8, 2011 at 11:18 am #

    Perry kicked ass with his response re: the death penalty in Texas. IMHO, Newt had the best overall performance. Too bad he has enough baggage to fill a Delta carousel.

  20. MCPO Airdale September 8, 2011 at 11:20 am #

    Oh, and Williams and his Politico cohort are liberal asses of the highest order. Not a single query on the economy or unemployment. Way to protect your socialist boy-king, fellas!

  21. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 11:28 am #

  40. Jazz September 8, 2011 at 3:14 pm #

    I’m not all aboard the Perry bandwagon yet, but in this field, he looks like the clear winner. Romney is a spineless, mealy-mouthed, satin-drawered, effete pantywaist, and no one else has any poll weight.

  44. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 3:23 pm #

    It’s a long time until next summer’s conventions. IMO, it is very premature to declare ANY candidate is THE winner of our nomination. What say we listen to a few more debates before we decide?

  45. Jazz September 8, 2011 at 3:26 pm #

    i will stab you with my pitchfork and burn you with my torch if you even try to dupe me into being rational.

  46. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere September 8, 2011 at 3:27 pm #

    I call for pograms. Five-year pograms.

    How many trillions of dollars can we spend on them?

  51. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 3:35 pm #

    I gotta be honest. I love Sarah like no other, but she’s whipping my ass with this teasing bullshit.
    To the point of making me sick of her.

  52. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere September 8, 2011 at 3:37 pm #

    I wouldn’t kick her out of bed for eatin’ crackers, and she can whip me, beat me, and make me feel cheap anytime.

  57. Jazz September 8, 2011 at 3:43 pm #

    How many trillions of dollars can we spend on them?

    Don’t get all wise with me. That’s trillions of tax money, and I’m contemplating creative tax-base management schemes that are not built to accommodate the strain you so obviously desire to place on the working man’s, i.e., Big Labor’s, back. My plan is to minimize the tax base so you no longer have the trillions to spend, Spendy McSpenderpants.

  58. Jazz September 8, 2011 at 3:44 pm #

    Sorry – Spendy McSpandexSpenderpants

  59. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere September 8, 2011 at 3:55 pm #

    You can’t reduce the tax base. We need a more balanced approach, and the only way that happens is if the people who are paying taxes now start paying more. We can’t continue to pay people who don’t pay any taxes without that additional savings in the tax code, and we sure as hell can’t expect those people to pay for things themselves.

  60. Jazz September 8, 2011 at 4:00 pm #

    You canโ€™t reduce the tax base.

    You have not been to one of my pograms. You need a Pogram Program from one of my past pograms. Performed properly, pograms put people in the ground, and the tax base gets incrementally smaller.

  61. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 4:00 pm #

  65. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 4:34 pm #

    Haven’t heard a thing from him since he got to Norfolk other than he’s been chipping paint, which sounds like a bullshit job for an OS.

    Aggie, be certain to check out Hyundai and Kia.
    Both of those companies now have the best and most product for the least money.
    Also check out Buick. (no, I’m not kidding. Really, I’m not.)

  66. Jay in Ames September 8, 2011 at 4:38 pm #

    I have a Hyundai that’s just about to turn 100k, and I haven’t even replaced the brake pads.

  67. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 4:40 pm #

    Hyundai and Kia (same company now) are really shaking up the car market these days.
    I wish they built pickup trucks.

  68. Jay in Ames September 8, 2011 at 4:41 pm #

    Wait until the Indian and Chinese cars start appearing.

  69. LC Aggie Sith September 8, 2011 at 4:43 pm #

    If you werenโ€™t a missus, iโ€™d give you tongue kisses.

    I can keep those in my purse, right??

    I have looked at and like both Kia and Hyundai. But with three very tall kids I need more space. I am thinking of getting a small Hyundai for Eldest once she gets her license, though.

    Donโ€™t know about a girlie drink with 2 shots!

    Well, “girlie” refers to what I would imbibe, not to what girls would order with umbrellas and shit. It’s to differentiate from the Booze of the Week posts by ArmedGeek ๐Ÿ˜‰

  79. LC Aggie Sith September 8, 2011 at 5:05 pm #

    It did knock me on my ass last night, J’Ames. I may have to do half shots instead.

  81. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 5:06 pm #

    SD โ€“ Everybody chips paint. Itโ€™s the same thing as keeping your weapon clean.

    At what rank are they no longer expected to chip paint?

  82. MCPO Airdale September 8, 2011 at 5:09 pm #

    SD – E-5. Then, you supervise Sailors chipping paint.

  83. Jay in Ames September 8, 2011 at 5:10 pm #

    Not to sound stupid, but what is chipping paint? Is it like submarine races and snipe hunts?

  84. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 5:15 pm #

    Taking the rust and peeled old paint off a ship’s steel and iron parts and repainting them gray. It’s a total shit, forever ongoing detail considering the salt water.

  85. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 5:17 pm #

    Stinky best get off his ass and make E5 quick. Of course, that’s only if he ever makes E4, and I’d still like to meet his old CO and MCPO in a dark alley for that stunt.

    Scary pics.

    My aunt lives in Omaha, by the Missouri River. The interstate bridge (I680, Mormon Bridge) is ok, but the approaches are completely gone, all 4 lanes. It will be 2 years at least until that road is open, I’ll bet.

  90. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 5:24 pm #

    Chief, send us all the water you guys don’t want. We’ll take every drop.

  91. Jay in Ames September 8, 2011 at 5:25 pm #

    More Missouri River pics:

    http://www.iowadot.gov/floods/2011floodgallery.html

    A lot of this is because they didn’t flood North and South Dakota farms. I also heard that there was an endangered species involved with not flooding something, but I haven’t confirmed that.

  92. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 5:26 pm #

    If it’s asphalt, can’t they just crush, repack and re-lay it?

  93. Jay in Ames September 8, 2011 at 5:27 pm #

    It’s concrete, too, plus the beds and shoulders are gone. This has been underwater all summer long, and won’t recede until November.

  94. MCPO Airdale September 8, 2011 at 5:30 pm #

    This is the worst flooding here since 1972. We have thousands of homes underwater and people crowded into shelters.

  95. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 5:31 pm #

    Concrete? Yep, that’s gonna take a while…

  96. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 5:32 pm #

    God damn I wish Texas could get some real rain. This is our worst drought since the great depression and trust me when I say it sucks.

  97. Jay in Ames September 8, 2011 at 5:34 pm #

    I’d send every drop down to ya, if I could.

    Can’t you just reroute the Mississippi for a while?

  98. Jay in Ames September 8, 2011 at 5:35 pm #

    Been through a couple floods here in Ames, and they really suck. I hope everything recedes really soon, Chief.

  99. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 5:46 pm #

    What you probably may have missed about that flooding, per Corp of Engineers decision of several months back, Jay, is that a George Soros company is going in and trying the buy much of this “former” food production land now that ” … it’s worth hardly anything anymore.”

  100. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 5:47 pm #

    And then, Jay, if you studied the Obama mandated “Rural Council” and the UN’s Agenda 21, you may start seeing a different view of the flooding and why it happened.

  101. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 5:48 pm #

    You always, always, always have to watch Obama’s other hand.

    I remember seeing that too, CB. Figured it was related to not flooding farmland until it was too late.

    Heat them in the oven first, SD. Just FYI.

    I believe 160 degrees is the magic number. Is that correct, Roamy?

  126. roamingfirehydrant September 8, 2011 at 8:10 pm #

    I think I stopped it at 160, and it crept up to 165. It was awesome with baked potato and corn.

    I got the munchies again, clintbird.

  129. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 8:44 pm #

    roamy, I haven’t smoked a doobie in decades but boy do I remember the munchies. Ha!

  130. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 8:47 pm #

    I experimented with pot for a decade or so. Does that count?

  131. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 8:49 pm #

    Yes.

  132. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 8:50 pm #

    Me too.

    Then I quit.

    I ran out of snacks.

  133. roamingfirehydrant September 8, 2011 at 8:50 pm #

    I confess I never smoked pot because of my asthma and the kid in school we nicknamed Captain Quaalude. I got contact highs at concerts though. The AC/DC one – now that was a trip! I changed into the concert t-shirt I had bought in front of then-boyfriend Mr. RFH and his two friends. Also had no depth perception for 2 hours.

    roamy, all I can tell you is you have NO IDEA what you missed by not seeing Cheech and Chong’s Up In Smoke whilst stoned.

  135. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 8:59 pm #

    I had to quit in the Army, Roamy. They frowned upon recreational pharmaceuticals.

    Saw that while ripped, CB. Greatness. Watched it straight and it sucked.

  137. clintbird September 8, 2011 at 9:07 pm #

    Even straight though, SD, I still laugh until I cry with that one scene where they’re driving down the road, light up that giant doobie, and end up parked on the median.

    Same with NASA, SD.

  139. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 9:20 pm #

    CB, that, and “ain’t this a peach” made me howl. Stoned or not.

    Roamy, I can’t imagine! LOL!

    Damn, I hate being so square…

    Barry’s World is a magical place.

    Someone else ALWAYS pays the bill, and nothing is ever YOUR fault.

    Unless you’re rich. Or actually pay taxes. Then you can go to Hell.

    *Comes in late to the conversation*

    Things done as an E-3:

    Chipping paint … check
    Washing Aircraft … check
    Stocking Commissary Warehouse with stores from monthly “state-side” cargo transport (while stationed in Iceland) … check
    Clean work center spaces (we called it “field day”) … check
    Gained “Buffer tech” status … check
    Stood untold hours of hanger watches/guard duty … check
    Did assigned “TAD” (Temporary Assigned Duty) within the Command (in my case departmental Duty Driver) … check.

    Within a week after advancing to Petty Officer Third Class I was assigned a Working Party. Had just pulled one the week before, so I was a bit hot under the coller (we were usually assigned such on days our “section” had “the duty”). I thought this was grossly unfair, especially since I had advanced a paygrade and now there were a number of folks “junior to me, who should continue to benefit from their “juniorness”. My section leader, after hearing my tale of woe, chuckled, and advised me to look at the roster for said “field day, and this time, look to see who is in charge …

    Yeah, that would be me. Not that the “PO in charge” did not partake in the field day, if you were any kind of Sailor on the right side of “squared away”, you would always be in the mix. But it was expected that you first and foremost, lead your merry band of men, at the task to which they were assigned.

    After looking at the post for the detail, I came back to the section leader, all red faced, saying something to the effect, “Oh, that’s different!”.

    Here, Aggie. You didn’t miss much.

  144. LC Aggie Sith September 8, 2011 at 9:39 pm #

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

  145. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 9:41 pm #

    I remember the beauty of making buck sergeant. Instead of doing the shit jobs, I was now directed to tell my friends to do the shit jobs.
    Rank was such a wonderous thing.

  146. LC Aggie Sith September 8, 2011 at 9:45 pm #

    I can totally see you revelling in it, too, SD.

  147. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 9:52 pm #

    No. At first I hated it. Then I grew to love beating down unruly privates.

  148. roamingfirehydrant September 8, 2011 at 10:03 pm #

    Is that your name for punching the clown?

  150. Blackiswhite, Imperial Consigliere September 8, 2011 at 10:18 pm #

    So either youtube is brilliant, or they just had a massive helping of FAIL!

    The little icon…with the EMPTY podium and the American Flag? Yeah. I agree. There’s been no leader there since Zero was sworn in.

  151. LC Aggie Sith September 8, 2011 at 10:21 pm #

    Seeing as YouTube has had its issues censoring right-leaning videos, I’m going with massive FAIL, BisW.

  152. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 10:21 pm #

    I’d ask what the asshole mooncricket said in his speech tonight, but I don’t give a fuck.
    Fuck him, his family, his friends, and anyone who remotely believes in what he spews.

  153. LC Aggie Sith September 8, 2011 at 10:24 pm #

    asshole mooncricket

    Not sure why, but that made me LOL.

    Fox News headline, “Obama Pitches $450B Jobs Plan,
    Urges End to D.C. ‘Political Circus'”

    Yeah, motherfucker. We plan on ending this god damned circus come next November, unless Lee Harvey happens to show up sooner.

  155. Stinky's Dad September 8, 2011 at 10:26 pm #

    Ya have to reach back to the old cartoons in the 30’s and ’40’s Aggie.
    The mooncrickets would be singing jazz tunes before and after the cartoons.

    The best feeling in the world is to be an E-9 with over 20 years in. They can only pay you not to come to work anymore if you piss them off.

  157. Teresa in Fort Worth, TX September 8, 2011 at 11:04 pm #

    Aggie, if it makes you feel any better, I was (and still am) just as square…..

  158. clintbird September 9, 2011 at 12:01 am #

    Just remember this, aggie:

    PASS THIS BILL NOW!

  160. Jay in Ames September 9, 2011 at 7:43 am #

    I’m not square, I’m kinda round.

    Literally.
