Lions and Tigers and Bears and Donkeys

Liberals have no concept, nor do they care.

Liberals don’t care where the money comes from. Why should they care about spending that money?

Where does money come from?
Many believe it comes from the Federal Govt or Central Banks. While the argument can be made the Feds/Central bank are manufacturers of money, I don’t believe they create the wealth behind it. Since our economical implosion happened in 2008, our Federal Govt has been printing money in an effort to create short term wealth. 5 years later our domestic fiscal policy has gotten us nowhere because fiscal policy does not result in the expansion of [sustainable] wealth. I am in the camp that says don’t print wealth and let the pieces fall where they may. I believe a tough love fiscal policy would have paved the path toward a stronger, if not sooner recovery.



Centurylink Internet Review

I’ll make this review very short. Three words – CENTURYLINK INTERNET SUCKS.

If you are considering their service, find someone else UNLESS you are in my predicament of them being the last tree and the world is flooded with piss.

I have called the Better Business Bureau, Oregon Public Utility Commission (they were actually very helpful but unfortunately do not have authority to act) and have talked to Centurylink support until I’m blue in the face. Nothing. Nada. They simply do not care that my internet that I pay for (which is already a lame 1.5m down), usually functions at about .05m down. Dialup was faster.

Their excuse? Bandwidth exhaust (since August I might add). Now they claim they need a part that costs $250k to get me the speed I am paying for. Turns out they ran out of room and need to upgrade to provide enough capacity.

They finally quit taking new customers in my area about two months ago. Laughable. So many people in my area complained that they finally quit selling. What kind of moron sells capacity they don’t have just to turn a buck. Answer = Centurylink Internet.

I wish I had the CEO of the company’s phone number so I could call him every time my internet sucks. Answer = it would be every day about 6pm.

Oh and thanks for the $10 credit on my account. In the world of Centurylink Internet, this makes up for not being able to provide reliable service. I would pay 10 times this amount for my internet to work. Centurylink Internet = 1st class douchebags. Greedy douchebags. Unbeleivable. Yeah, I’m a little upset.

Galaxy Nexus Screenshot

As an admitted die-hard all things Googleite, I make sure my family is all well equipped with all things Google.

Our phones are no exception. My wife, daughter, and of course yours truly are all outfitted with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus (Google Phone).

I’m not really a screenshot kind of guy with my phone but apparently my daughter is. She showed me a nice screenshot trick you can do with the Galaxy Nexus.

On the left there is a volume toggle button. By simultaneously pushing the lower toggle and the power button, the phone will take a screenshot and send it to your gallery.

So you see, not all of my posts are gun related although it is comforting to know I can still take a shot with my phone!

Gone Shootin’

My wife, youngest daughter, and I went shooting yesterday. It was my wife’s first time. I told her she kept shooting center left and she said that was where she was aiming so she didn’t mix her shots up with mine. Clever. We are both excited to take our Concealed Carry class in a couple weeks. More on that after the class.

Like many of you, I’m tired of the new attempt to control guns. I wish the gun control crowd would just go away so we can get back to focusing on important issues like the fact our economy continues to erode. Gun control is a distraction.

Couldn’t Say It Better Myself

I was all revved up to do a post on Obamacide but was beat to the punch.
What better way to frame a narrative than with your pocketbook.
It’s been hilarious watching the liberals squirm and try to talk their way out of this being anything other than a tax increase.
I hate that cliche – “I Told You So”. But I did. I really did.

Oh, and BTW, Obama is not laughing with you. He’s laughing AT you. Your friends that make over $400k are paying an average extra 1.3%. You my friends are paying an average extra 1.7%. I personally am paying an extra 2.5%. So much for the “rich paying their fair share” eh?

Obama doesn’t discriminate when it comes to taxes.

Some Links and Benign Commentary

Catching up on some rest and relaxation today. Watching golf and wishing I was on the links. Kutcher and Fowler are both at even. Tough day with a lot of wind on the course at Kapalua. One of the golfers hats just blew off.

I bought a truck yesterday. A 2000 F-350 Crew Cab 4×4. It has the V10 and moves along nicely. This is picture of my girls guarding it on the logging roads above my house.
