A buddy of mine is his drummer on this tour.

Play on, Johnny, you will be missed.

"If I Were Ted Cruz..."

This is just way too good not to pass along.

From American Digest.org and the Moron Horde over at Ace of Spades HQ: If I were Ted Cruz.

 
 
Be sure to read the comments at the link. This would also provide a ready pool of conservative talent from which to draw for years to come.
 
Ted Cruz, if you're reading this...

Enjoy.

Another Video You Should See

Wow. American Life really sucks these days. The economy's in the crapper, money's hard to come by and those we elect to do our bidding in Washington could care less about us as long as they have their power and money.

*Sigh*

But before you draw a warm bath and get out the razor blade, listen to Bill Whittle's latest offering: Get to Work. I may have to watch this first thing every day.


On a partially related note, I have some friends who are decidedly Democrat who occasionally post something from some loopy leftard sites on my Facebook page. Since I consider myself fairly well read on current events, it's not hard to refute them. As since I like having friends, I never rebuff them directly, but do rebuff the outrageous articles they post from places like Media Matters for America, Mother Jones and the like.

It has become great sport for me. I hope all 16 of you have a similar pastime.

Bill Whittle on Lost in Space, Heroes and Manhood

Whilst perusing the Intarwebz this morning, I ran across this most excellent video by Bill Whittle over at Instapundit. It's well worth your time, especially if you're a young whippersnapper who was not fortunate enough to see this show when it first came on the telly.

There are many great points made, enjoy...



Kindly do not confuse the original with the movie remake of LiS from the '90's where Ms. Robinson is the bitch queen who treats all the men on the spaceship like little boys. The best part of that flick was the great Gary Oldman's portrayal of Dr. Smith, who really does turn into a monster.

I still wonder why they didn't push him out of the airlock when they had the chance.

Minnesota's Repeal of Useless Laws Is a Model for Washington

This news should make your Monday more enjoyable:


Minnesota "unsession" dumps 1175 obsolete, silly laws. (This link looks hinky in my browser)


Although it was done at the state level, it shows that out there, somewhere, lies common sense.

We could use more of this. A lot more.

Crimson Tide Win Back-to-Back National Championships...


...in golf.

Golf?

OK, I'll take that. After the disastrous end to last season's Iron Bowl, this helps soften the blow of the loss to Auburn.

Roll Tide!

We've Been Visited by Aliens, Know How I Know?

They haven't come back.

So while we wait, there's this cloud.

I think Pixy forgot to feed Ace's hungry, hungry computer hamsters today. If any Morons came over here looking for info, I got nuthin'.

UPDATE! Ewok found here.

Todd Rundgren - Todd.


Or some Renaissance.

That is all.

Everything You Need to Know About Income Inequality in One Handy-Dandy Chart

This is stolen, shamelessly, from Ace of Spades HQ.

This One Chart Explains Everything You Need to Know About Income Inequality, courtesy of freebeacon.com.

As for the entire premise of "income inequality," whomever is in charge of this, please make my income equal to that of Bill Gates.

Thank you.

Oh, and while we're talking about that "money" thingy, from Instapundit comes this link: Jobs: the best way to fight poverty. Well, duh. Everybody know that except everybody in Washington.
