Taking a Commercial Break

Dear MO(Y)Ls, MO(Y)Ds, and FOMs, It is time for MOTUS to take a bit of a break. Not totally; I’m not going completely dark (can I say that?) butt I do need to “reinvent” myself.

Why? Well, here’s the deal: due to Big Guy’s continuing assault on the working class (that technically includes me, or at least it used to; I haven’t actually seen a paycheck since the WONs moved into the Big White) the cost of living is beginning to head into the Jimmy Carter stratosphere.  Do you know what a can of Glasswax runs you these days? If you can even find it.

So not only are we headed towards hyper-inflation, butt I just started going through the 13,000 pages (so far) of Obamacare’s unintended consequences. And frankly, since I’m not getting any younger and NASA just notified me that their new budget will no longer allow them to provide my yearly maintenance upgrades, new batteries and memory backups, I think it prudent on my part to pursue other opportunities.

So while I won’t be giving up my MOTUS responsibilities entirely, I do need to spend some time figuring out how best to monetize my current position while I – as Roger Simon put it – “still have some ability to do it.”

So for the near future I’ll be downsizing the girth of my daily post (following Lady M’s guidelines and helpful hints) to allow me more time to explore options for monetizing my efforts. I’m not looking for handouts – butt since Big Guy wants us all to pay a little more  and he won’t give me a raise, or even pay me for my current services - I’m going to have to do this on my own.

So while I look into ad placements to defray the costs of maintaining my cloud storage, I’ll also be pursuing other options. I kind of liked receiving pay checks from Right Network (before they closed the shutters) and the Daily Mail Online, so I’ll be checking around to see if anyone else with a big time website would be interested in publishing my daily reflections for fun and profit. Anyone? Glenn, over at The Blaze? Tucker, on the Daily CallerBreitbart? The good Michelle? Whoever the new editor-in-chief at PJMedia will be? Feel free to drop me an email, I’m currently entertaining all offers: blog assignments, book deals, consulting, speaking circuit, circus acts.

In short, I’m not certain the modest funds I’ve set aside for retirement in the Old Age Home for Obsolete Technological devices will be adequate in the age of ObamaWorld.

So, in order to reinvent MOTUS as an all-American capitalist pig I need a few weeks to get my game plan together. This will hopefully allow me to find a level playing field on which I’ll get a fair shake in order to pay my fair share. I don’t want to be a slacker.

While I’m pursuing “other options” Raj will be looking into migrating my blog to a new (non-Blogger) platform, so things will be busy around here. Not so busy that I won’t be able to  present a short post each day however. In this interim, most day’s posts will be similar to today’s (below):  a picture, a comment and/or a question; with an occasional full length missive to cover important topics, like the Oscars.

Please continue to check in daily and leave your comments and suggestions, as I sure don’t want to give up my #138 position on the Top Conservative Blogs list!

Sincere thanks to all my loyal readers, commentors and fans: please stay tuned as I attempt to reinvent myself into something newer, bigger and better!

So, let me reiterate: I’m not looking for donations. I’ve just got that good old American Capitalist Pig itch, and I’m looking to find a way to scratch it so I can afford to give a little bit more.

And now, today’s topic for discussion: Snow jobs. Choose your favorite of the week from my list, or create your own.

  • Prayer Breakfast:

Celebutards DEMAND A PLAN: Lie to Me

Now where was I? Oh, right; talking about distractions.

Yesterday as we learned from Secretary Panetta and General Dempsey that we did “everything possible” even though neither BO nor Hills were kept appraised of the attack on our consulate in Benghazi. 

Apparently nobody in news central found that odd, as the evening’s newscasts, podcasts, posts and tweets were preoccupied with other critical issues. Most were busy communicating dire warnings and hand-wringing over the impending blizzard in New England. Because it’s winter, and these folks have never seen a blizzard before. Not one like this anyway.


Oh, and the manhunt in California for the murderer who has killed several people was also high on the must play list, as it plays into the cause du jour - gun control. No mention of the murderer’s political affiliations however (because being a member of the anti-gun club, the I-heart-Obama club and the Piers Morgan fan club seems to rule out his being a right-winger; although he may be a bit mentally instable).

And speaking of gun control and the mentally instable, what is it with celebrities and politics anyway? Why do they feel compelled to share their meager thoughts on real issues with the rest of us?

Is it because their talent, training and experience gives them special insights?

chris rock

Take Chris Rock...(“Please!” h/t: Henny Youngman) for example, one of multiple celebs who showed up in Washington this week to support Big Guy’s gun control plan and to “DEMAND A PLAN.”

 “The President of the United States is, you know, our boss. But also, you know, the president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and the dad of the country.”

On dear, another little Hollywood genius who flunked Civics: it’s the other way around. Big Guy is not the boss of me. The preezy works for us, remember?


And as far as BO and MO being our mom and dad, well let’s just say that if I had a mom and dad, they wouldn’t look like this:

mo bo sweetBO and MO enduring Dr. Benjamin Carson’s address at the National Prayer Breakfast

And  dear old Tony Bennett – how can I put this? Shut up and sing, already! No wait: I heard your last live performance; shut up and lip-synch!

Butt seriously, we need gun control to avoid the “kind of turn that happened” in Nazi Germany? Not to put too fine a point on it, butt, uh, the Nazis were really good at using “gun control”  for their own nefarious purposes.

And I happen to know that Tony’s old enough to remember what actually went down in WWII. So even while gun control advocates like to point out that Hitler actually passed legislation allowing individual gun ownership (with registration) again following a post WWI ban - always deemphasizing the registration requirement. And while you’ll never read a word on any of their blogs about that little incident just before Kristallnacht, where the Nazis confiscated all the guns registered to Jews,  Tony has no excuse for not knowing about it.

Even so,  I don’t know what Tony was rambling on about “the Nazis came over, and created tragic things, and they had to be told off.” All I’m getting from all of their “Demand A Plan”  shenanigans is the whiff of mendacity in the morning.

Butt speaking of Nazis, who-in-the-hell is in charge of Big Guy photo optics these days!  Sheeze, check out this shot from yesterday of Big Guy’s gun control and immigration campaign stop in Leesburg, VA:

bo lansdowne resort va unfortunate optics.

Knowing how people read things into optics, and jump to conclusions, I just don’t see how the shot with the eagles is going to be helpful in this debate, or any other.

OFF TOPIC POST SCRIPT FYI: MOTUS will be going on a semi-sabbatical soon, more on that situation tomorrow.

What Huxley Knew About Drones And When He Knew It


“There will be, in the next generation or so, a pharmacological method of making people love their servitude, and producing dictatorship without tears, so to speak, producing a kind of painless concentration camp for entire societies, so that people will in fact have their liberties taken away from them, but will rather enjoy it, because they will be distracted from any desire to rebel by propaganda or brainwashing, or brainwashing enhanced by pharmacological methods. And this seems to be the final revolution.” Aldous Huxley, Berkeley, March 20, 1962

Given the current debate over whether our world lists more towards Orwell or Huxley, which way do you thing Big Guy tilts? I’m leaning towards Huxley:

As Huxley remarked in Brave New World Revisited, the civil libertarians and rationalists who are ever on the alert to oppose tyranny “failed to take into account man’s almost infinite appetite for distractions.”

Yes, definitely Huxley.

Have you heard the repercussions from the media on the Big White’s release of the secret drone memo that rationalizes killing Americans overseas without so much as a hat tip to Judge Wapner?


Me neither! The silence has been deafening.

Not so much as a Tweet from any of Big Guy’s loyal supporters regarding his weekly Gameboy marathonseven though we now know that his enemies list includes Americans as targets!

videogamesRUsYeah, right there! An American driving a Jeep in Cairo – could be a terrorist; it’s good enough for me if it’s good enough for you.

It looks like Huxley might have been right; the distractions have grown so seductive:


So mind –numbing:


that the Justice Department feels that we can confidently proceed with the targeted killing of Americans overseas without raising an eyebrow. (We’re currently looking into targeting dangerous American “terrorists” on home soil as well, butt that might take a bit longer. The Soma hasn’t been produced in adequate quantities yet, and people are still buying up all the ammo they can get their hands on).

So, until further notice, the Tuesday afternoon Death by Droning gaming session will continue as currently configured.

gameofdronesButt we’ve renamed it the “Tuesday Afternoon Overseas Contingency Operation.”

That’s all for now. You are now free to continue your self-medication. Or not. The choice is still yours, for awhile.

Boy, I sure hope the drones decide to take control of the consul back pretty soon.

We could sure use a new game-face around here.

Butt, butt…now back to the real “news”

I know you’d like me to continue to investigate the Big Butt theory as propagated by WaPo. Butt frankly the charges of racism against those who talk about Lady M’s rather ample caboose have been amply covered by others on the intertoobs such as BLUR-BRAIN:

FOREWARD! All aboard Obama’s high speed intercontinental train.

We can all rest a little easier this week: the country is in good hands. John Kerry has slipped into the Secretary of State slot without the U.S. missing a beat. Joey’s in Europe, further cementing relationships, and Big Guy’s got all the pressing domestic issues covered. 

On the Deficit/Debt Ceiling/Budget: (“I’ve done my part, I've made proposals, it's their turn, we agree on a lot - and the American public agrees with me - more to be done, won't be easy.”) To help things along even more, yesterday BO signed legislation suspending the nation's borrowing limit until May 18, and today he’s going to order Congress to pass a short-term budget package that would delay the automatic, across-the-board cuts known as the sequester. That should take care of the economy for another year.

boundingintoactionto announcenoactionSo that’s done, let’s move on to my other pressing agendas:

Immigration: (“I’ve done my part, I've made proposals, it's their turn, we agree on a lot - and the American public agrees with me - more to be done, won't be easy.”)

Blackout in the “Chocolate City”–UPDATED

Another Super Bowl in the can, and the official results are in. Beyoncé was hot, the commercials, not (with the exception of Chrysler’s odes to our military and farmers, butt they weren’t technically commercials). There was a delay of game penalty called due to a temporary brown-out in the Chocolate City. And, oh yes…the Ravens won!

So from the top: did you see Beyoncé shaking her considerable Behindce all over the half-time show?

bey shakes her bootyBeyoncé the Super Knowles

No wonder she didn’t have time to practice for the inauguration and had to lipsync! Last night’s performance was not just live, butt live in hot black leather and lace! With matching hot black knee-high sock-boots. Lady M was mesmerized:

BlackBarry: The Skeet Shooter

Day 2 and the controversy heats up: Did Big Guy play golf or go shootin’ on his birthday?

First, some information on background: Despite being surrounded by well-equipped Secret Service agents at all times, BO insists on packin’ his own:

am I packin'; of course I'm pakin'[4]Bo's packin' 2

Oh yeah; it’s big. It’s black. It’s powerful. It’s Barry’s Black-Barry (BBB), and it’s smokin’ hot.
