The Jayhawk's Quarry

I have started a satellite blog comprised of all of my latest hunting pictures.

You can link to it via the words The Jayhawk's Quarry to the right.

It is still a work in progress, so you can expect some changes in the near future.

Thank you.

Pumpkin and Pecan

Those are the names of the two turkeys that George W. Bush, incumbent President of the United States and leader of the free world, pardoned.

Yes, he pardoned two turkeys while two men who engaged in the felonious act of protecting our border sit in a prison cell.

If you will remember, Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean, the two border agents that were imprisoned for shooting a drug runner, are still wasting away in jail.

Yeah, remember them?

In my opinion, there are a few high-ranking people that should be serving time in their stead.

Johnny Sutton, the filthy attorney that sent them to prison, also gave the drug runner freedom in exchange for his testimony. This should be considered a criminal act, and Sutton should at least be disbarred, if not imprisoned.

George Bush and Johnny Sutton have been friends since the 1980's, and Sutton has even received appointed positions and nominations by Bush.

Yes, wonderful Christian Conservatives all.

Happy Thanksgiving, Ramos and Compean, we won't forget you.

Media Ignorance

Having seen all the stories that the mainstream media has reported about suicides, bombings, and the latest celebrity "news", am I alone in my disgust that they haven't mentioned the Berg v. Obama case?

Is it too boring to discuss the fact that Obama's qualifications for the highest office in the land are being challenged by an attorney? Is it too trivial to note that the case is going to be heard by the Supreme Court? Is it so mundane that it doesn't even bear mention?

I found this video which fully explains the case.

This should be international mainstream headline news, yet there is complete silence. Why?

(Notice: The above video was made before the elections. Forgive the horribly secular music; I don't like it either.)

unCivil War Poll: Results

The tally is as follows:

Civil War: 5
War for Southern Independence: 19
2nd War for American Independence: 8
None of the Above: 1

So shall it be written, so shall it be done.

I am, however, curious. Who voted for "None of the Above", and what did you have in mind?

A Mere Agent

I cannot sufficiently add comment to the words below; I may only reason that this eloquent and straightforward quote of a time long past is more than applicable today.

"The Federal Government is the creature of the States. It is not a party to the Constitution, but the result of it the creation of that agreement which wasmade by the States as parties.

It is a mere agent, entrusted with limited powers for certain specific objects; which powers and objects are enumerated in the Constitution.
Shall the agent be permitted to judge the extent of its own powers, without reference to his constituent?

To a certain extent, he is compelled to do this, in the very act of exercising them, but always in subordination to the authority by whom his powers were conferred. If this were not so, the result would be, that the agent would possess every power which the agent could confer, notwithstanding the plainest and most express terms of the grant. This would be against all principle and all reason.

If such a rule would prevail in regard to government, a written constitution would be the idlest thing imaginable. It would afford no barrier against the usurpations of the government, and no security for the rights and liberties of the people.

If then the Federal Government has no authority to judge, in the last resort, of the extent of its own powers, with what propriety can it be said that a single department of that government may do so? Nay. It is said that this department may not only judge for itself, but for the other departments also.

This is an absurdity as pernicious as it is gross and palpable. If the judiciary may determine the powers of the Federal Government, it may pronounce them either less or more than they really are. "

Global Temperature Stagnation

Floridian forecasters are predicting a 25 degree low in Tallahassee tomorrow (19th), resulting in an all-time state record.

I must, at this time, pause and reflect on this for two reasons. First, I live in Kansas. You know, the state where the winter chill causes sweat to freeze on your skin, ice crystals hang mid-air, and your eyes fog up when you come back in from feeding the goats.

Secondly, what happened to Global Warming? I'm disappointed, to be honest. I was the president of Global Warming for Kansas Inc., a group dedicated to starting citrus groves and hibiscus plantations in the event of higher temperatures in the Midwest. The best-laid schemes...

This comes on the heels of the report that scientists "accidentally" used September's temperature stats to prove that this October was the hottest in years. Whoops.

You may have noticed that no one mentions "Global Warming" half as much as they mention "Climate Change." That's because they found out that the warming trend came to a halt in '99.
So, to continue their agenda, they switched to the new moniker of Climate Change.

As Alex Trebek would say, "Ooh, soory!"

Recent analysis of geologic and written historical records prove that the sun is mostly to blame for the heating up of the earth.

And you know what else, it gets cooler when the sun goes down, and warmer when it comes back up.

I've also noticed a weird trend in the temperature in the summer compared to that of winter.

I'm just sayin'.

In Defense of O'Bama: Facing the Music

Exhibit "A":

Don't worry, I haven't turned-coat.

Never even suspect that you will find anything nice, supportive, or truly defensive of Obama and his Socialist agenda on or near this blog any time soon.

However, I must speak out on one issue.

The above photo has been used to demonize Obama; even I have pointed to it in the past to show his anti-American sentiments. But, that was before I saw, and heard, the video.

Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands over your ears for a slaughtering of the national anthem.

I submit to you Exhibit "B":

Honestly, if I were to stand by and listen to such a hideous rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner, I wouldn't put my hand over my heart either.

I would be more inclined to put my hand over my stomach.

(NOTICE: This post is mostly tongue-in-cheek. The author is nowhere near to supporting Obama or defending his Socialist agenda. The author is an American and is very much opposed to Socialism in any form. The author was born in America, speaks American, and has been known to cling to his guns and his faith. The author knows that some knuckle-heads out there actually like Socialism, and they voted for Obama. The author doesn't hate these people; rather, he wishes for them to live to be very, very old so they can fully reap what they have sown. The author also dislikes McCain, so don't think he isn't fair and balanced. The author also takes pleasure in calling the new President "O'Bama", because he likes to make fun of his name, though it is true that Obama does have Irish roots. The Emerald Isle isn't pleased.)

Playlist Listlessness

Say that seven-times fast!

My playlist seemed a little listless, so I made some changes:

The Mormon Tabernacle Choir was the only group I could find that sings the final stanza of "The Star-Spangled Banner".

The Great Escape theme is one of my favourite theme songs of all time.

Finally, I had to include something of Jimmy Durante's, so I picked the classic "Make Someone Happy".

While We Were Sleeping...

...a wee spike-buck made it's way into our yard, and it destroyed that little tree's brother (out of view).

The date stamp is incorrect, so we're going to have to fix it.

President-Elect Effect

Obama's Presidency has already proven beneficial to the American common welfare and defense, because guns and ammo sales are up, up, up!

He hasn't even been inaugurated yet, and already he's better than Bush!
That is, if he's even going to be inaugurated. (See article below.)

What next? Food sales? Shrapnel-proof helmet sales? Nuclear-proof bomb shelter sales? The market can only go up from here!

However, we may still have to change the flag...

"I've campaigned in... I think... 57 states, with three more to go... uhh."

Is Obama a Foreigner?

According to one attorney he is!

Philip J. Berg, Esq., is appealing his case to the U.S. Supreme Court that the President Elect, Barack Hussein Obama, is not a natural-born citizen of the United States.

Article II, Section I of the U.S. Constitution states: "No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been Fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."

Berg claims to have evidence/testimony from Obama's paternal grandmother that Obama was, in fact, born in Kenya. Obama's campaign mangers have denied this accusation by saying that he was born in Hawaii, and by producing a copy of his birth certificate online.

But, since only copies of it have been submitted to the public, Berg claims this is further proof that Obama is concealing his actual Kenyan birth certificate, thus disqualifying him from assuming the Presidency.

Berg also says that if, according to Rule 36 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Obama does not object to the charges or provide a written answer, he has legally admitted the charge against him.

(It may be noted that copies of one's birth certificate are not legally admissible documents.)

Only time and evidence will tell the validity and sincerity of these accusations, so we can only watch and wait.
