“Smuggling guns and arms across the Libyan border”

I guess the cat is out of the bag: Fast & Furious was just a training run for Big Guy’s Benghazi/Syria gun running operation. After connecting the dots, it looks like Big Guy’s posse was the primary supplier of the Brotherhood and al Qaeda rebels fighting to overthrow Bashar Assad in order to establish a muslim jihadi state in Syria.

I don’t like to be critical of Big Guy when he goes off teleprompter and tries something he has no experience with, butt I think he should have petitioned for a SAMCRO chapter, rather than trying it on his own. They might have advised him to smuggle new guns rather than try to take back the guns he smuggled to the Libyan Brotherhood and al Qaeda rebels fighting to overthrow Hosni Mubarak in order to establish a muslim jihadi state in Egypt. Nobody likes an Indian giver (can I say that?).

Sons of Anarchy White house copySAMWHO

Besides, Big Guy always felt that if he had a son who was a gun runner, he would look just like Jax.


This is my last full day at the beach with my sisters, so I’m going to make it brief and leave you with some gun running traveling music and this:

never forget copy


On The Border: Al Stewart

The fishing boats go out across the evening water
Smuggling guns and arms across the Spanish border
The wind whips up the waves so loud
The ghost moon sails among the clouds
Turns the rifles into silver on the border

On my wall the colours of the maps are running
From Africa the winds they talk of changes coming
The torches flare up in the night
The hand that sets the farms alight
Has spread the word to those who're waiting on the border


In the village where I grew up
Nothing seems the same
Still you never see the change from day to day
And no-one notices the customs slip away

Late last night the rain was knocking at my window
I moved across the darkened room and in the lampglow
I thought I saw down in the street
The spirit of the century
Telling us that we're all standing on the border

In the islands where I grew up
Nothing seems the same
It's just the patterns that remain
An empty shell


But there's a strangeness in the air you feel too well
The fishing boats go out across the evening water
Smuggling guns and arms across the Spanish border
The wind whips up the waves so loud
The ghost moon sails among the clouds
Turns the rifles into silver on the border

On the border
On the border
On the border

Food For Thought Too

Were we all wrong? Is it possible that Big Guy is not the “One” we’ve been waiting for?

Could that title actually belong to a different clown?


No, not that clown, this clown:

ronald mcdouble copy

It turns out Ronald McDonald may be the “Bringer of Manna.” That’s right, Mickey D’s McDouble is the “cheapest, most nutritious and bountiful food that has ever existed in human history!”


Not to mention Delicious!

I know what you’re thinking: “Woo Hoo! Butt where does Lady M stand on the McDouble?”

At the head of the line! Butt remember, Lady M strongly adheres to the philosophy “Do as I say, not as I do.”


MO burger_thumb[2]


Over the years, Lady M has tried to force encourage McDonald’s to join her No Child’s Fat Behind campaign:


mo mickey d copy_thumb[2]_thumb[2]


All she asked Ronald to do was healthify the Happy Meal with apple slices:


happy meal-2_thumb[2]

or, “right-size” it,


and replace the racist toys packed in their Happy Meals with more appropriate action figures like these:



We finally WON their support (financial as well as moral) when MO agreed to allow her fashion forward image adorn the newly re-vitamized Happy Meal packaging for FREE!!! (* just pay separate processing and handling)



Look for it under the golden Arches in your neighborhood soon!

One important final note: according to the study, the delicious McDouble contains about 50% of the daily requirement of protein for only about 1 buck. So I recommend, just to be safe, spend another buck and eat 2. That way your required daily protein deposits are in the bank. So to speak.

If you want to know more about Lady M’s sacrificin’ for you on this topic, and I know you do, here are a few blasts from the past:

MOTUS’ First 2016 Prezzy Poll: Democratic Girls

Is it a wee bit early to be thinking about the 2016 Prezzy Election? Yeah, it probably is. Butt I’m a tired of not-de-funding Obamacare and roasting Weiners, so, I’m going to jump right in with my first, official 2016 Presidential poll: “Which Democratic Girl Will Be Nominated?” and why?

Why only Democrats? Because they’ve got their plan nailed down and every one of their ducks in a row. It’s easy when you’ve had the same, basic plan of HOPE & CHANGE since 1913.


Why "only girls? Because the Democratic the master plan calls for making history again by electing the first girl President. Big Guy proved that the best way to mobilize the LIVs (Low Information Voters) is to make the choice “Historic”: “Elect America’s the first black President, or you’re a racist.”


The strategery is clearly sound because Big Guy “WON!,” ipso fatso, future nominees will have the best shot at “Occupying” the Big White if they are also the “historic” choice. And the Dems are loaded with tantalizing, historic choices: girls, latinos, indians (woo woo, not Eastern), eskimos, muslims, illegal aliens, sexters and LGBTQs. Geez, that’s 5, historic election wins based on sexual preference alone!

gay obama makeup

Sorry; Only One “Historic First” Category Per Person.

Assuming the R-words will keep cheesing off conservatives and libertarians by acting like Democrats, that pretty much makes the White House “Blue” for at least the next 22 elections.

It’s no surprise that the Democratic party bench (the party of Sandra Fluke rhymes with duck) is deep in X chromosomes, and our leadoff batter is Hillary. Big Guy’s old secretary is, not just the presumptive nominee, butt a confirmed “Rock Star” (h/t: John McCain). After all, she’s earned the title by standing by her men (Big Dawg & Big Guy), she’s the former smartest woman to ever live (title now held by Lady M) and her odds of “WINNING!” just got a big boost when NBC endorsed her with a new 4-part miniseries starring Diane Lane as her Hillness.

hillz-dianeSeparated at birth?

Butt with all that going for her, she’s far from a shoe in. She discovered that in 2008. Fancy Nancy Pelosi has already made history as the Congressman to have more cosmetic surgeries than than Kim Kardashian first, historic girl Speaker of the House. Further down the bench, and I’m in trouble for not making her first, is Lady M, her own bad self. No need to dwell on her vast her qualifications: World Famous Fashion Icon and Busy Mom™  (h/t: Cripes Suzette).

Rounding out my poll are Democratic superwomen Janet “Bruno” Napolitano, Elizabeth “Pocahontas” Warren, and my surprise pick, Chelsea Clinton.

dem gals

I know I’ve left out many contenders: Sgt, Wasserman-Schultz, future Secretary of Homeland Security and Mars Pathfinder expert, Sheila Jackson Lee and fashion icon contender, Rosa Delauro, to name just a few. They may pop up in future polls because they are NOT going away.


Remember, the question is “Which girl do you think will win?” NOT “Which girl would you vote for” (‘cause I would move to Venezuela before I’d  vote for any of them...uh...except for Lady M!) and as always, Chicago Rules are in effect. Vote early, vote often. Polls will remain open until I get back from the beach. HOPE I don’t get sun burned.

Parasites ‘R Us

I found this article on Instapundit last night:

“PROTOZOAN RELATIONSHIPS: Social amoebae travel with a posse, have amazingly complicated social lives.” 

It appears scientists have discovered a single-celled organisms that are actually “farmers.” Apparently they tote around two strains of bacteria wherever they go. One strain acts as “seed corn” to grow additional bacteria that then serve as an energy source for the “social amoeba” it travels with. The second strain of bacteria is a weaponized version of the first, butt since it’s toxic it provides protection for its host. Clever little protozoa: packin’ both guns and butter.

Butt I don’t see what the big deal is. Single-celled social amoeba in Washington have been cultivating bacteria to do their bidding for years:

Social amoebae travel with a posse, have amazingly complicated social lives.”

And with that, I’m afraid I must leave you to contemplate this on your own. I have to tidy up my little bunker at the back of Lady M’s walk-in closet as I have summer visitors arriving shortly. And since the Big White is still closed to tourists due to the evil R-words sequester, I have to make arrangements with Little Mo to sneak them in the back door.

So postings will be brief through the weekend; there won’t be any big breaking news anyway as everyone around here is getting ready to go on vacation. Oh, and don’t worry about missing out on my in-depth analysis of Big Guy’s phony reads speeches on the economy and tax reform. He’s just trying to get everybody all wee-weed up, because that’s a time honored tradition around here during the dog days of August.

An Empty Chair for the Ash Heap of History

Please, no more tweets about the organic garden at the Giant’s AT&T Park. It was a joke, okay?

“I’m proud to announce that next season they’re planning to turn the centerfield bleachers at AT&T Park into what’s believed to be the first ever edible garden in a major American sports facility. With rows of kale and strawberries and eggplant, the Giants are going to help encourage local youth to eat healthy – even at the ballpark.” 

It is funny though, isn’t it, how people will believe anything that comes out of Big Guy’s mouth.

LGBT's for Obama“Free healthcare? For everybody?! Oh Mr. President, you are soooo cool!”

Butt seriously; I don’t think this is really such a bad idea. Just because San Francisco is at the top of the “best cities in America” list today doesn’t mean they won’t end up at the bottom tomorrow. Just like Detroit, the city the Giants trounced in last year’s World Series. They started out as one of the “best cities in America” too, the “Paris of the Midwest” no less.

So it’s never too early to begin planning for your municipal bankruptcy, especially if your city is run exclusively by progressive Democrats.

I’ve been doing some research on this situation and from what I can tell, the best path out of bankruptcy for Detroit is going to be urban farming. Interestingly, we’ve been running some trial programs right here in Washington D.C..



It appears that urban farming – crops as well as fish - is the perfect solution for rehabbing an industrial city that’s gone belly up. It’s sort of a “back to the future” recovery. Progressives highly approve of this scheme: it’s very green, has a small carbon footprint and provides jobs for people educated in the local public schools:

In the 19th century in this country, farm-hand work was a traditional trade for the unlettered and semi-skilled. In a way, RecoveryPark brings this neighborhood full circle, to a time before the industrial age transformed Southeast Michigan. “The fish don’t care if you can’t read or write,” he said. “The fish don’t care if you have felonies.”

And apparently the felons don’t care if you have fish either, as Food Field’s shipping container house and upcoming fish farm was robbed last week, before they even went operational.

aquaponics_050813_6015_copy_5215The progressive promised land: mind you, they think conservatives are regressive.

So they need some new equipment to replace what was stolen but there’s no hurry, as they are still awaiting approval from the city for their farms. The city hasn’t quite figured out all the red tape they’re going to need to impose yet:

Though the systems are nearly complete, neither farm is sure when they’ll get individual approval from the city. Exactly how to become a fully permitted, legal aquaponics business is still fishy.

“The city is in the process of coming up with a process,” for approving fish farms, says Kathryn Underwood of the City Planning Commission. “We don't even have all of the forms quite in place yet for all of things that need to happen. We're riding a bike and building it at the same time.”

As I said, I’ve been studying this and I think that there could be a real future for failed cities in farming: getting “back to their roots” so to speak. In fact, I discovered that other countries have been doing urban farming for decades. Here for example, is an established farm in Havana (Cuba, not Florida):

havana cuba urban farmHavana Acres: Forward! comrades.

And let’s face it, growing a few onions in Detroit sure wouldn’t hurt anything.

detroit urban-farm-3.jonions pg

Just like Roosevelt’s New Deal morphed into Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society, all our new urban renewal project needs (aside from cash) is a great, historic name: How about “Obama’s Field of Dreams”?


Yes, I like that. And I think we can all appreciate the symbolism of the dreams; 70 years of fighting to end poverty and racial injustice, 70 years of progress. 70 years of “we can’t wait,” 70 years of fundamentally transforming America. And now, finally, we have something  to show for it: corn fields in Detroit where once great industries stood and people lived. That, my friends, is Progress with a capital P.

cornfield in downtown detroitGolden ears of corn growing in the shadows of the Golden Towers of the Fisher Building and the former GM World Headquarters

So I guess Detroit is going to be okay, they shouldn’t be needing another federal handout, maybe just a little gardening advice from our master gardener and a hand at getting the spring plantings in.


And later BO can come drop in for the royal harvest:

Screenshot Studio capture #1262“I told you boys, if I build it they will come.” He didn’t say they’d be rats though.

So I think Detroit’s positioned to make the shift from industry to our new urban renewal farming program. Heaven knows, they’ve certainly made enough compost to last another 40 years. And if the onions and corn thing doesn’t work out, I hear there’s always a big demand for medical marijuana in the city.

What is it about Progressive stewardship that always leads us to the ash heap of history?

Screenshot Studio capture #1263 What idiot left this classic Eames chair out in the field to rot!??

Do you see, now, the danger in leaving the chair empty?

Obamacare Update: Lean, Green & Very, Very Mean!

I know it’s hard to keep up with a regime an administration that has more “focus shifts” than Lindsay Lohan has DUIs, butt you have to remember that Obamacare 1.0 was never really the “final solution” anyway. That honor has been reserved for Obamacare 2.0; and the unplanned fiasco engulfing Obamacare 1.0 just means we’ll be able to migrate to  the new Obamacare platform (bigger and better!) sooner than anyone around here ever dreamed.

130719135109-obamacare-database-620xa2.0: we’ll need to requisition a few more computers; and data centers

Big Guy’s pretty happy about this, as he was for single payer healthcare:

“I happen to be a proponent of a single-payer health care program. I see no reason why the United States of America, the wealthiest country in the history of the world, is spending 14 percent, 14 percent, of its gross national product on health care, cannot provide basic health insurance to everybody...A single-payer health care plan, a universal health care plan. And that's what I would like to see. As all of us know, we may not get there immediately.”

before he was against it: (New Hampshire townhall, 8/11/09)

“I have not said I am a single payer supporter.”

for finnochios Pinochio1

Butt now that even BO has conceded that there’s no point in trying to convince people they love Obamacare, he’ll just wait until they get sucked into it so far that they can’t help but love it.

In an interview with The New York Times, President Obama said that he can’t turn around public opinion on Obamacare through a PR push, but instead people will begin to appreciate the law once it goes into affect.

So just sit-tight and wait awhile. Eventually you will learn to stop worrying and love “da bomb” too.  Just like Detroit did.

detroit ruindetroit heartOnce you’re caught in the vortex, there’s no escape

It is our expectation that everything else on our list of potential scandals will be dispatched with the same simplicity. We’re currently working on a plan to blame all of them on Republican obstructionism. Here’s our first trial balloon, to test the concept:

On Sunday, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew told Fox News Sunday that Keystone’s failure to move forward was somehow Republicans’ fault: “There were some political games that were played, that took it off the trail and path to completion, where Republicans put it out there as something that was put on a timetable that it could not be resolved. It caused a delay. Playing political games with something like this was a mistake.”

Or there’s this variation – a Republican/Canadian/big oil collusion:

“Republicans have said that this would be a big jobs generator,” Obama said. “There is no evidence that that’s true.” He then blamed Canada for not “doing more” to prevent carbon emissions from oil sands. Obama continued, “I meant what I said; I'm going to evaluate this based on whether or not this is going to significantly contribute to carbon in our atmosphere. And there is no doubt that Canada at the source in those tar sands could potentially be doing more to mitigate carbon release.”

Or something. All I know is we need to stop worrying about all these phony scandals and start worrying about Global Warming Climate Change and our collective carbon footprints.

obamas-plan-obama-coal-fired-companies-political-poster-1296847159Energy plan: no coal, no oil, no natural gas. Get a hamster.

Meanwhile, around the globe, other people are worried about the U.S.’s carbon footprint too:

Billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin Talal said the Gulf Arab kingdom needed to reduce its reliance on crude oil and diversify its revenues.

His warning comes as rising shale energy supplies in the United States cut global demand for Saudi oil.

Prince Alwaleed said demand for oil from Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (Opec) member states was "in continuous decline".

Gee, that sounds like a good thing for our side, right? Natural gas is greener than dirty coal and dirty oil - and we’ve got TONS of it! Not so fast there, mother-earth frackers: although Big Guy has gone on the record as being in favor of fracking:

In this year's State of the Union address, Obama spoke of gas in a fashion that presaged his more recent "you didn't build that" campaign-trail argument in favor of higher taxes and bigger government. "[I]t was public research dollars, over the course of 30 years, that helped develop the technologies to extract all this natural gas out of shale rock," he said.

Obama's claim is untrue - the federal government spent little to research fracking and stopped altogether in 1992,

His environmentalist backers know that behind the scenes he stands with them against this unnatural carbon profiteering.

anti-fracking protest artistAnti-fracking protestor, putting her mouth where our money is

When President Obama's regulatory apparatus takes the side of environmentalists against the workers and consumers who must bear the consequences of his decisions, his green enforcers are usually the U.S. Department of the Interior or the Environmental Protection Agency. In the rare instance, as with the Keystone Pipeline, it is the State Department that delivers the crippling blow. But where these agencies have failed to inflict sufficient damage on one of America's fastest-growing industries, the Department of Transportation has stepped forward, cudgel in hand.

Brillig!  Read all about it yourself, as there’s no way I can do justice to the bureaucratic stonewalling made possible through the application of byzantine regulations. Simply brillig!

an-engineer-once-inserted-a-comment-this-is-evil-but-they-made-me-do-it-into-code-for-a-new-ad-systemYour Bureaucratic Overlords have taken care of everything. You’re welcome.

So, in summary: Obamacare, on track; phony scandals, in the bag; energy policy, clean and green – like Detroit, the first American city to go 100% green.

Detroit: where moss grows on abandoned boardroom floors:

They have created vast greenbelts within the city:


And there are certified greenhouses everywhere:

Any questions? If so, please hold them for Jay Carney’s press briefings, as he’s the only designated hitter up today.

Oh, and please: no questions about our upcoming vacay at the $7.6 million estate on Martha’s Vineyard. At this point, what difference does it make?

Barack Can’t Do it Alone: It Takes a Whole Village of Morons

Did you get your personal email message from Lady M yesterday too?

La primera dama estadounidense Michelle Obama habla sobre la obesidad infantil el martes 23 de julio de 2013, en la reunión anual del Consejo Nacional de La Raza, en Nueva Orleáns

Dear MOTUS --

There's a lot of noise and talk and back-and-forth going on in Washington, but hardly any of it seems to be about the struggles that middle-class families face.
When I was growing up, a family like mine -- living on my hard-working father's salary at the city water plant -- could build a solid life without much debt and without relying on any form of public assistance. Today, for too many families, that American promise is no longer within reach.

food stamp pres 

[ed. I don’t think we want to go there, do we? Because if we do, some smart-alec is going to point out that it’s hard to realize “the American promise” on part time employment (thanks Obamacare!)]

And by-the-way, when did the “American Dream” turn into the “American Promise”? From  aspiration to entitlement in one generation? Boy, that really is  CHANGE, butt what happened to the HOPE?]


Barack is working to fix that, to give all families a fair shot. And he needs solid Democrats in Congress to help him.

imageproxycab48trk[ed. Remember: only you can prevent stupidity]

I'm asking you to be part of the team working to elect more Democrats in Washington and across the country. Sign up today.

It's easy to get frustrated and cynical about politics.

[ed. What could cause that?]

obama's phony scandals

Now that the excitement of the presidential campaign has faded, it is so tempting to wait another four years to re-engage. [ed. “excitement” – is that what we’re calling it now? It used to be called PTSD.]

But make no mistake about it -- while some are tuning out, others are tuning in. They're doing everything they can to make their voices heard.

           Rand-Paul_Facebook_filibusterted cruzaaa

We're seeing the effects of that kind of imbalance every single day.

I know we can make our country a better place to live, for ourselves and our grandchildren, but Barack cannot do it alone.

presidents-job-gains-chart1[ed. Butt he’s doing a pretty good job so far.]

He needs people like you to get involved right now:

P.S. -- Please don't wait for the next presidential election to get involved -- we've got to get going right now. That's the only way we'll get it done.

merch_0001_button_we can't waitwcw

[ed. Don’t forget: we can’t wait. Go to the “Don’t Fund Obamacare” now, and sign the petition.]

So allow me to recap Lady M’s email blast: “I’m interrupting this non-stop campaign for a Public Service Announcement: Barack can’t do this alone; it takes a whole village full of morons.”
