Apparently he decided to ‘give up’ his tacky hideaway… Once the rebels came to call.

Lots of photos at the link. Here’s his pool.

 

I don’t see any Puking Lions ™, apparently even bloodthirsty tyrants have a modicum of taste.

The bomb shelter is pretty cool but didn’t Avocado green paint go out in the 70′s?

 

Check out the whole story at the Daily Mail.

I was making homemade biscuits, er, heating up the Pillsbury kind, and got out some ham slices to put inside them.

 

Walked away from the kitchen for a few minutes and returned to find this:

In depth analysis to follow this evening, assuming that I’m not in a digestive coma as a result of the bacon eating contest.  Ohhhhhhhhhhh BACON!

While doing a casual flyover of Texas, with my photo-reconnaissance drone, I came across this image.

A few miles away I spotted this building.

By a few miles, I mean 7,422, Okinawa to be precise.

.

This truck was observed on a lot belonging to Dave in Texas… Coinkidink? I think not.

That’s all I got.

Utah State Senate 23 February 2011

Beginning of Transcript:

SENATOR LOVEROCKET–”I rise and proudly stand today in defense of The Chubby. Sure, the so-called “main stream media” has described The Chubby as “cute” and “mini,” but I ask you my friends: does this lessen the importance of The Chubby in our beautiful state? Is the size of The Chubby really something upon which me must fix our interests? If The Chubby is used appropriately it can be an instrument of social interaction which is sorely needed in these troubled times. People from all walks of life can join together and find common ground while enjoying the contents of The Chubby. I urge you, my fellow senators, to vote “NO” on Senate Bill 314. Stand up and be counted. Protect The Chubby!

I yield the remainder of my time to the gentleman from Kanosh.

Two Out Of Three Ain’t Bad February 22, 2011

Heard this tonight at Karaoke Night at the Spirit Grille, and recorded it on my iPhone.

The piano solo is great, and the bass line is good.  But the singer, whoever that is, was consistently flat.

Good to be back in Texas!

Yum!

Beautiful snow capped Colorado mountains have long left the rear view mirror… replaced by flat unapologetically ugly working-man’s ranch land. But in my mind, I’m home.

High-test caffeine washes down the butter and syrup smothered soft-crunchy carbohydrates. No more dread-locked, unwashed pretentious ignorance and arrogance creeping me out.

I’ll take Texas friendly.

 

People In Conneckticut Are Not All Lame February 20, 2011

I’m just saying, some people on the northeast seaboard are OK.  Like Scott, who sent me a link to  a cool video about Japanese swordplay.

Nobody here in Texas told me about this.  Why did Scott have to tell me from way up there in Conneckticut?  I’ll  bet he’s still shoveling snow while I am wearing shorts and flip flops.  How did he find the time to discover this video?

Sure, he can read it, but it’s upside down to everyone else.

Re: Ridiculous Rhetoric on the House Floor…

Dear Rep. West:

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know that, although I live a long ways from your district (I’m in Dallas County, Texas), I contributed to your campaign and I enjoy receiving your emails and hearing about you on the news.

I’m proud that I supported you, and that you are standing up for the values we believe in.   I consider you to be an American first, and you probably could qualify as a Texan as well.  Keep me on the list for your next campaign. 

Best regards,

Michael

Dear Michael,

Over this past week I have watched and listened to Members of the House of Representatives from across the aisle.

I am appalled at their arrogance, belligerence, and dishonest rhetoric filled with empty emotional platitudes. Have they no shame in realizing that their inept, incompetent failures are the reason why we are debating this continuing resolution? They failed to pass a budget during the 111th Congress.

Have they no honor in realizing that their fiscal irresponsibility over the past four years has resulted in our standing on the precipice of a fiscal canyon from which we may not recover?

Also troubling are the events in the state of Wisconsin which mirror those that happened in Greece several months ago. We are witnessing the abject hostility of a unionized entitlement class that is being lauded by the liberal left, seemingly to include our President.

It is such a critical time for our Republic, yet there seems no visionary leadership – it is as if America stopped producing adults. I have never seen a greater assembly of petulance and sophomoric behavior as what I have witnessed this week during debate on the floor of the House of Representatives.

To those across the aisle, please explain to the American people how your economic policies have created a better environment for long term sustainable growth. This debate is about jobs and the economy.

It begins with remedying the spending problem on Capitol Hill. It includes tackling the burdensome taxation and regulation policies strangling our country. It is the understanding that Keynesian tax and spend policies did not grow America’s economy, but the indomitable, entrepreneurial spirit of the American People.

Government sets the conditions for job and economic growth, it does not create jobs. I am pleased that we are having open debate in the people’s house. However, there is clearly something lacking in this discourse – the recognition of the failure of the bureaucratic nanny-state liberal policies.

Rest assured that I will do everything in my ability to stand firm and lead on the principles that make America exceptional.

Sincerely,

Allen West
Member of Congress
