***UPDATED*** Why? Colorado's Routt County 911 Director Spreads Political Hatred Online

*********FINAL UPDATE TO THIS POST - APRIL 10, 2014 (Date of original story: December 14th, 2013)*********
Tim McMenamin is no longer the Director of 911 Communications for Routt County Colorado. I do not know for sure if he was fired or if he was allowed to resign. I believe it was the latter. Either way, he's no longer a concern to the "teabaggers" who live in Routt County Colorado. (see pic below)

Doug Brown is the new Director of 911 Communications for Routt County. I wish him well and hope he serves ALL of the citizens of Routt County well.

I also wish Mr. McMenamin well. I hope he seeks treatment for whatever it is that ails him.

*********END OF FINAL UPDATE*********

***This post has been UPDATED three four times (so far). All UPDATES are posted at the bottom of this post.***

***I have received a reply from the Routt County Sheriff's Office. UPDATE #4 below contains this reply.***

Freedom of speech is a fantastic thing. Proper usage of free speech can be beneficial. Improper usage can be dangerous, hurtful, or possibly even deadly...(possibly) depending on your political affiliation...and (possibly) depending on whom you may have to rely on for emergency care.

The $110,000/year (including benefits) 911 Communications Director for Routt County in Colorado, Tim McMenamin, has a problem. See for yourself in the pictures below how he conducts himself in his public posts on facebook. If I were someone who identifies as a "Republican" or, as Mr. McMenamin puts it, as a "teabagger", who lives in Routt County, Colorado, I wouldn't feel very safe having this guy or someone like him in charge of dispatching emergency responders to my house.

Below you will find screen shots of and links to a few of Routt County, CO 911 Communications Director Tim McMenamin's public posts on facebook. All of the posts below are public posts. Everyone in the world can view them on Facebook. I've just put them all in one convenient place where they can all be viewed at once.

Tim McMenamin has his job listed on his facebook account. Mr. McMenamin is a public County employee in Colorado. I will demonstrate for you below that Mr. McMenamin exhibits questionable behavior (putting it mildly) for any County employee. Some taxpayers in Routt County, Colorado may react negatively to paying the $110K salary (including benefits) of someone who behaves as poorly as Mr. McMenamin. SEE BELOW.

Tim McMenamin's facebook account where he publicly states his occupation:

Website for Routt County Colorado Communications (Tim McMenamin is listed as the Director):

This is the comment that first introduced me to Mr. McMenamin. I'm a member and an administrator of the Sarah Palin's Earthquake Movement Facebook page.

That comment from Mr. McMenamin wasn't that bad. I've seen (and personally received) much, much worse.

Things only go downhill from here...

*****GRAPHIC LANGUAGE ALERT (for the remainder of this post)*****

It's established that Mr. McMenamin doesn't like Sarah Palin. That's fine. He doesn't have to like her. (Link to comment):

Next, we have a "two-fer"...two comments from Mr. McMenamin directed to Ken Buck who is a Republican running for the U.S. Senate in Colorado. (Link to comment #1) (Link to comment #2) (Link to Ken Buck's Facebook page) (Link to Ken Buck's website)

When lower case letters just won't do...immediately re-post your own comment in ALL CAPS.

Another "two-fer"...although, according to the date and time stamp on these next two posts, I'd speculate that Mr. McMenamin is probably at work at this time of day. Perhaps he was on his morning break when he made the following comments? Either way, it's a pathetic way for a public employee to behave. (Link to comment) (Link to Your Nation Facebook page)

Again, I don't think many taxpayers would approve of a county employee spending their time at work in this manner. (Link to comment)

The next 4 pictures show that Mr. McMenamin is back to trolling during evening hours. Note the dates and times of the following pictures. You'll probably also notice the same thing that I did: Mr. McMenamin's vocabulary isn't very extensive. He keeps using the same word over and over and over...
(Link to comment #1) (Comment #2) (Comment #3) (Comment #4) (Link to American Overlook Facebook page)

Here's Mr. McMenamin displaying more of his "tolerant" liberal love for others (note the time stamp on these posts - more comments made during work hours). (Link to comment #1) (Comment #2) (Comment #3) (Link to Right Wing News Facebook page)

The following comment from Mr. McMenamin is my favorite. He trolls around on Facebook posting comments on a variety of conservative Facebook pages and now he's asking Facebook WHY they are showing him ads for conservatives? Not very bright, this one. (Link to comment)

Some more tolerance...posted during work hours again. (Link to comment) (Link to Tea Party Leadership Fund Facebook page) I'm guessing that while an overpaid county employee is in the throws of a foaming-at-the-mouth tantrum, taxpayers would be asking too much to expect proper spelling of even the most simple of words.

Good grief. The page on which Mr. McMenamin posted this brilliant comment hasn't even made any posts of their own. (Link to comment) (Link to Citizens For Protecting Rights Facebook page)

It's ironic that Mr. McMenamin calls others "hate spewing". (Link to comment)

Not only does Mr. McMenamin use his personal Facebook account to show his hatred for others, he also uses it to recruit applicants for future Routt County Communications job openings. The email address at the end of each job posting would be his county-provided email address. Who wouldn't want to have him as their boss? (Link #1) (Link #2) (Link #3) (Link #4) (Link #5) (Link #6) (Link #7) (Link #8) (Link #9) (Link #10)

If everything above hasn't disgusted you, this will. See Mr. McMenamin's salary ($88K) and benefits total ($110K) below. From the Routt County budget found HERE (pg 147 in the pdf file)

If something has recently gone wrong in Mr. McMenamin's life (addiction/mental health issue/loss of a loved one, etc.) that is causing him to act out in the manner depicted above, then I, as a TEA Partier...not as "a teabagger", Mr. McMenamin...wish him a speedy recovery. If he's not experiencing any serious problems in life, then I hope he loses his cushy County job because of his behavior depicted above. Everyone, including Mr. McMenamin, is certainly entitled to exercise their First Amendment rights. Sometimes there are consequences to doing so.

*****UPDATE #1 - December 14, 2013 10:10AM CST*****
Mr. Tim McMenamin has removed his profile picture and his place of employment (among other information) from his Facebook account. As you can see, he has yet to de-activate his Facebook account. He's just hiding some of his personal information from being displayed on his Facebook account. As you can see in the pictures of his account (at the top of this post), he listed his employer as "911 Director at Routt County 9-1-1". He "studied at George Washington University". He "lives in Hayden, Colorado". And, he's "from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania". Good thing I took screen shots, eh? Can't remove or change those, Mr. McMenamin. Sorry.

Now all that Mr. McMenamin has listed on his Facebook account is that he "Went to Neshaminy High School". Wait...let me refresh the page...we'll see if that's still there...hang on. . . . . .Yep. It's still there. As are all the links to all the hate he's been spreading (as you can see in the pic below). This whole "public" Facebook commenting thing is HARD. (And HE called Sarah Palin a "nitwit". LMAO!!!)

What made Mr. McMenamin remove his profile picture and personal information from his Facebook account? In other words, how did Mr. McMenamin become aware of my blog post? I posted it in several "strategic locations", including underneath his original post on our Sarah Palin's Earthquake Movement Facebook page. Here's a pic of that post (prior to Mr. McMenamin removing his profile pic):

*****UPDATE #2 - December 14, 2013 11:15AM CST*****
Because Mr. McMenamin is removing many of his Facebook comments that are depicted above, I'm now able to see other comments he posted that I previously missed.

(Comment link)

The bigoted Tim McMenamin has now removed his "bigoted teabaggers" comment from "Stop Amnesty's" timeline. I wonder what it feels like to an adult male to have to run all over a website and remove comments you made? I never say anything I don't believe, therefore, I stand by EVERYTHING I've said in the past. I may wish I'd said a couple things differently, but I'll never abandon the intent of a comment/video/post I've made. I wonder WHAT is rushing through the mind of Mr. McMenamin? He's certainly scurrying about trying to "fix" what he's done (to no avail). I have screen shots of much of what he's already posted on Facebook. They'll exist in perpetuity.

"YOUR PEOPLE"??? Seriously, Tim? YOUR PEOPLE? Please, oh please, Mr. Tim McMenamin, WHO EXACTLY ARE Senator Ted Cruz's people? Oh my...this isn't getting any better for you Mr. McMenamin. (Comment link)

*****UPDATE #3 - December 14, 2013 11:58AM CST*****
Since Mr. McMenamin removed his comment from our Sarah Palin's Earthquake Facebook page, I had to find another way to contact him (I'll keep his government email address, and that of his superiors, as a last resort).

*****UPDATE #4 - December 16, 2013 6:30PM CST*****
Early this morning I forwarded this blog post to 11 different people within Routt County government whose email addresses are obtainable on the Routt County government website. At around 11AM this morning, I received an email reply from Routt County Sheriff Garrett Wiggins. I'm sharing Sheriff Wiggins' reply to me after obtaining his permission to do so:
"Thank you so much for this information. You can rest assured that I have forwarded this information along with my comments to Mr. McMenamin’s supervisors who happens to be the Board of County Commissioners and County Manager Tom Sullivan. This is very disturbing and we will get to the bottom of this.

"The Routt County Communication Department is not affiliated with or supervised by the Routt County Sheriff’s Office (RCSO). The RCSO has policy and procedure that addresses this kind of ill behavior and is not tolerated."

I should also state that County Manager Tom Sullivan is one of the 11 people within Routt County government whom I emailed this morning. I wanted to note that Sheriff Wiggins is the only one from whom I have received a response.

I will continue to update this post should any further information become available to me.

Some Of The Best Military Videos On Youtube - In My Opinion...

I wanted to share some of the best military videos I've seen on YouTube. This isn't an all-inclusive list. It's just some of the best that I've watched recently.

This first video is a pretty intensive look at the daily life, attention to detail, respect, and honor of the "Old Guard" at Arlington National Cemetery. This is a glimpse into their daily regiment and it's very satisfying to me that our country still grows men of this caliber. These guys give me hope for the future of this country. This video is from 2011.

Below is the description underneath this video on YouTube:
A unique look behind the scenes of the Old Guard as they protect the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, bury heroes at Arlington National Cemetery and do other unique duties. This is one of the most professional units in the military. Watch as they go through all the preparation for a day of work and honor. Very inspiring and makes you proud they are one of our units.

A day in the Life of the Old Guard, the Army's oldest unit (51:16):

USMC Silent Drill Platoon - At Houston Texans Stadium (8:04):

From National Geographic - Arlington: Field of Honor (55:29):

Old Guard, US Army Rifle Team performs at Spirit of America (28:53):

Tomb of the Unknown Soldier-Changing of the Guard-Arlington National Cemetery (10:18):

That's enough for today.

Thank you, soldiers.

Attempted "Honor Killing" In Lincoln, NE - Enforcement of Sharia Law

This is honor killings allowed.

So, in Lincoln, Nebraska there was an attempt at an "honor killing" yet, there is no charge for attempted murder? Nor was there any mention in local media of this being an attempted "honor killing". Based on the information in both of the stories I've included below, that makes no sense. Ahmed Tuma stated he wanted to kill his sister, he tried to kill his sister (by swinging at her with a crowbar and attempting to force the car in which she was escaping his attempt to murder her into oncoming traffic), and he failed to kill his sister. That's attempted murder. And, in this case, it's also a failed "honor killing" (because of his statement, according to police, that her being gay is "shameful to their family and against their Muslim beliefs").

There's nothing more, specifically, that the police could have charged Tuma with for this being an attempt at an "honor killing", but it would sure be nice if the Nebraska media wasn't so ignorant about it. And, if KLKN and the Lincoln Journal Star are simply attempting to be "politically correct" in this case by FAILING to mention that this crime, as they each reported it, is THE DEFINITION of an attempt at an "honor killing" then, shame on them. They've failed to fully inform their viewers and readers. Neither KLKN nor the Lincoln Journal Star fail to mention the "anti-gay" aspect of this crime, yet both leave out the fact that this is also an attempted "honor killing".

For more about honor killings, go HERE (WARNING: Graphic images).

Video from KLKN TV:
News, Weather and Sports for Lincoln, NE;

From KLKN TV (emphasis mine):
November 8, 2013

Lincoln Police arrested two men they say were involved in a hate crime Thursday evening. It happened around 5 p.m. near 27th & M Streets in Lincoln.

Police say 20-yr-old Ahmed Tuma was angry with his sister because she is in a relationship with a woman. Police say Tuma said it is shameful to their family and against Muslim beliefs.

Police say Tuma's sister and her fiancee arrived at home near 27th & M when he and a friend, 20-year-old Nathan Marks ran up to them. Police say Tuma tried to hit her with a crow bar. The couple escaped into their car, but police say Tuma repeatedly hit the car with the crowbar.

"They were in fear for their lives, he had made some verbal threats to kill the sister," Officer Katie Flood with the Lincoln Police Dept. said.

Police say the couple drove off, but Marks and Tuma got into Marks' pickup and followed, ramming them from behind nearly into oncoming traffic on S. 27th Street. The couple were able to get away and call police.

Tuma was arrested for attempted 2nd degree assault, criminal mischief, two counts of terroristic threats and use of a weapon to commit a felony. All of the charges except use of a weapon carry a hate crime enhancement.

Marks was arrested for aiding and abetting terroristic threats and aiding and abetting use of a weapon to commit a felony.

The two appeared in a bond hearing Friday, and will be arraigned next week.

From the Lincoln Journal Star:

November 8, 2013

A 20-year-old man allegedly attacked a relative with a crowbar Thursday evening because she’s marrying a woman, Lincoln police said.

Ahmed Mohammed Tuma, 5312 Tipperary Trail, and a friend went to the woman's home near 27th and O streets at about 5 to confront her about being engaged to a woman, Officer Katie Flood said.


As the woman and her 28-year-old fiancée got out of their car, Tuma ran up and tried to bash the relative in the head with a crowbar.

She managed to get back into the car and lock the door.

Tuma beat the window and windshield eight to 10 times, but did not break through, Flood said.


They got away and called 911.

No one was hurt, but the fiancée's 2003 Toyota Celica sustained $2,500 damage, Flood said.

Officers pulled Tuma and Marks over at about 2:30 Friday morning in south Lincoln and arrested Tuma on suspicion of attempted second-degree assault, criminal mischief and two counts of terroristic threats, all of them with a hate crime enhancement, which allows for a stiffer sentence.

They also cited Tuma on suspicion of using a deadly weapon to commit a felony.

They arrested Marks on suspicion of aiding and abetting two crimes: making terroristic threats and using a weapon to commit a felony.

House Members Filing Articles Of Impeachment Against AG Eric Holder On Thursday

Well...this story from is "fun"...but, it won't go anywhere because it is in the SENATE where a conviction for impeachment takes place. Dems control the Senate. This will go nowhere because "The Constitution requires a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict..." I don't believe that there are enough clear-thinking Democrats within the Senate body who would set-aside their politics and vote to matter how justified the merit of the charges brought forth.

From this story on

A group of fed-up House Republicans who say they are tired of being stonewalled by Attorney General Eric Holder plan to formally introduce articles of impeachment on Thursday in a bid to remove the nation’s top law enforcement officer from office.

Several GOP congressmen have been drafting articles of impeachment over a number of controversies relating to the U.S. Department of Justice. The lawmakers’ grievances include Holder’s refusal to turn over documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious, the DOJ’s habit of selectively enforcing federal laws, and the department’s refusal to prosecute IRS officials who accessed confidential taxpayer information, among other things.

The articles of impeachment also accuse Holder of providing false testimony to Congress, which is a “clear violation” of the law.

If you'd like to know more about the role of the United States Senate during impeachment proceedings, go HERE. (Or keep reading...)

The Senate's Impeachment Role

The United States Constitution provides that the House of Representatives "shall have the sole Power of Impeachment" (Article I, section 2) and that "the Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments .... [but] no person shall be convicted without the Concurrence of two-thirds of the Members present" (Article I, section 3). The president, vice president, and all civil officers of the United States are subject to impeachment.

The concept of impeachment originated in England and was adopted by many of the American colonial governments and state constitutions. At the Constitutional Convention in 1787, the framers considered several possibilities before deciding that the Senate should try impeachments.

Impeachment is a very serious affair. This power of Congress is the ultimate weapon against officials of the federal government, and is a fundamental component of the constitutional system of “checks and balances.” In impeachment proceedings, the House of Representatives charges an official by approving, by majority vote, articles of impeachment. A committee of representatives, called “managers,” acts as prosecutors before the Senate. The Senate Chamber serves as the courtroom. The Senate becomes jury and judge, except in the case of presidential impeachment trials when the chief justice of the United States presides. The Constitution requires a two-thirds vote of the Senate to convict, and the penalty for an impeached official is removal from office. In some cases, disqualification from holding future offices is also imposed. There is no appeal.

Sunday, November 3, 2013 Censoring YouTube Comments - Allows "Teabagger" Comment

HEALTHCARE.GOV .gov! .G O V! DOT GOV!!! (Which is GOVERNMENT-RUN hence, the ".gov" web domain.) They're NOT allowing all comments under their (YOUR) YouTube videos! A government-run entity is NOT allowing people to post comments without approval on YouTube. I'm not embedding one of their videos here because in order to see this in motion you have to actually go to YouTube to see what I'm talking about.

Click on the links to the videos below, then when you're on YouTube, click in the comment box as you would do to post a comment. After you click in the comment box, beneath it you'll see the phrase "Comments may be held for uploader approval" appear underneath the comment box...which means whoever is in charge of this YouTube channel is screening ALL comments posted under that video. (I run several YouTube channels - I know what that comment means and what settings you have to choose to MAKE that comment appear. "May be held for uploader approval" means "ARE BEING HELD for uploader approval". Period.)

This video was published to YouTube on October 21, 2013, has 17,713 views and has ONE COMMENT under it. (It's actually kind of a snotty comment, too - from the uploader's perspective, that is.) Here's the crap video - brought to you BY YOUR GOVERNMENT:
"Deborah's Covered. You Can Be Covered Too!"

At the time of this blog post that video has 9 "likes" and 123 "dislikes" on YouTube. The number of nasty comments's videos are probably receiving daily must be a staggering number. Oddly, that video only has ONE COMMENT after being viewed more than 17K times.

You're not only paying for other people's healthcare, now you're paying for the production of crappy videos and you CAN'T EVEN COMMENT ON THEM!!!

Below is a screen shot from the video on YouTube: censoring comments on YouTube.

I looked at a few of the other videos posted on the YouTube channel to see if they're censoring the comments on other videos as well. I looked at about 10 of their other videos and ALL of them that I checked were being censored.

Apparently "teabaggers" is a term that is APPROVED of by, as the picture below shows. The "teabagger" comment in the screen shot below was approved "one year ago".
"Teabaggers" is apparently approved of by

The "teabagger" comment can be found under this video on's YouTube channel:
"People with Disabilities and the Affordable Care Act"

The following picture shows you that someone from has REMOVED a comment that was either posted BEFORE comments were being approved OR removed by one person from AFTER another person had approved it. At the bottom of this screen shot, I clicked on "Show the comment" underneath the comment from "iris7eye" which was in reply to the comment by "electronicoffee". The comment made by "electronicoffee" no longer exists (because someone from removed it). removing comments

This is the video from which the above comment was removed:
"MyCare: Abby S. in Minneapolis, MN"

Anyone who operates a YouTube channel has the ability and right to censor the comments that appear on their videos or on their channel. I do it on my own videos because I'm tired of reading the filthy comments that are often left on my videos and I figure others may get sick and tired of reading that junk, too. Here's the kicker: I'm not being paid by taxpayers to provide a service, like the people who run the Healthcare.GOV YouTube channel are. I don't get paid by anyone, much less by the taxpayers. The American taxpayer has just as much of a RIGHT to BITCH to federal government as the losers that are accepting all the new government handouts have a RIGHT to THANK and PRAISE the federal government for all their new toys. (Although, the losers SHOULD be thanking the American taxpayers...all 53% of you.)

Obama Is A Corrupt Scumbag Liar - Here's The Proof (9 Lists of Links)

At the beginning of the Obama administration I had planned/wanted to keep what I was going to call “The Obama Diary”. It was going to be an ongoing, updated daily, list of everything we knew this bastard was going to do to this country. With my being a new computer user at the time and the speed at which things began to happen, obviously, I fell behind EARLY on (after only about a month into his 1st term I was far behind).

My not being able to make that “Obama Diary” come to life will forever be one of the greatest regrets of my life.

Never fear. Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog has made that list. In fact, he's made many lists...all of which you'll find below.

Me, being who I am...which is a nobody...who happened to have had one viral video (graphic language - the title of the video tells you all you need to know - "Obama Was Re-Elected - I'm pissed - This ain't pretty. NSFW!!! (Or civilized humans.)") and therefore some people "know my name" (and claim to "know who I am")...feel that I should explain the fact that "Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog" is one of the "Gary Johnson votin' douchebags" that I spoke of in that one 24-minute video. At least, that's what I called all people who voted for Gary Johnson (or Ron Paul - actually, I called ALL "Libertarians" in general the same thing) in my post-election rant that I posted on YouTube. I should/could have explained myself better in my video, but, I didn't, therefore, it exists as it is. People say all kinds of things when they're pissed off. I actually politically identify as a "Conservatarian" (Conservative/Libertarian), myself. Yes, most people don't put their pissed-off rants on YouTube...but, I never claimed to be "most people".

There are heroes all over this country...and, I think "Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog" is one of them...even though he voted for Gary Johnson in the last election. The amount of time and work he has obviously put into all of the following blog posts is nothing short of heroic. The time, the work, the hundreds of hours of research that went into compiling all of the posts below is absolutely phenomenal. I hope you can take SOME time to read and share at least SOME of it...

Screen grab from "Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog"

This first list is the most comprehensive:
It was originally posted on August 15, 2013. It was last updated on October 4, 2013.
Obama supporters will go hysterical over this well sourced list of 315 examples of his lying, lawbreaking, corruption, cronyism, etc.

Obama's War on Missing Children - Amber Alert System Goes Dark During Govt Shutdown

This post has been updated (scroll down for the update).

I guess Obama thinks that missing children don't need to be found while the federal government is "shutdown". Here's the link for the Amber Alert system:‎ Click it.

This is what you'll see when you click the link:

Obama and those who are doing his bidding during this government shutdown (and always) are disgusting little fellows. It sickens me to know that there are people of such low character/ethics/morality employed by the federal government who are complying with orders like this. Have they no shame? We know Obama doesn't have any. We know most politicians don't have any. Is there ONE federal employee with the guts to stand up to these disgusting orders and who will refuse to comply? Is EVERYONE for sale? Is money ALL that matters to MOST people? I hope they have enough of a conscience to feel like sh*t about themselves every day from now on when they go into their cushy federal jobs. They sicken me.

(H/T: The Blaze)

10:15AM CST October 7, 2013
Apparently the public pressure/bad press (something) was too much for Obama and his minions. The federal "Amber Alert" website is working again. (For now...)

Drudge had linked to this story from The Right Scoop. Shortly after that, the federal Amber Alert website was reinstated. (I suppose Obama and/or his minions will try to tell us that they were "doing maintenance" on the website, even though the screen shot you see above was what you saw when you clicked the link earlier. I took that screen shot myself.)

Here are a couple more screen shots. The first one is of the Drudge Report with this story from The Right Scoop as it's main headline:

This one is from Drudge Tools which is a website that time-stamps all of the links Drudge posts (I added the red line and arrows in the picture below to bring clarity to the posts relating to this story - note the time stamp of those stories):

Affordable Care Act? Obama's A Damn Comedian! - Read & Share! (Facebook Post By Will Sheehan)

If there's still anyone left who thinks Obamacare, otherwise known as the "Affordable Care Act", is "affordable" or has one damn thing to do with "care", please read this Facebook post which was originally posted on the "" Facebook timeline at some point over the past couple of days. (I can not locate the original post or I would link to it. The administrators at the Facebook page may have removed the post or the poster may have even removed their own post. Others may have the link to this original post. I do not. I did find this link from the "Open Your Eyes People" Facebook page, however. That post, from that page, has been shared 2,453 times as of right now. 2:30AM CST 10-3-13 - that post was made on Facebook on 12:55AM on 10-2-13.)

Here's the quote directly from the Facebook post by "Will Sheehan" as it appears in the picture below:
I actually made it through this morning at 8:00 A.M. I have a preexisting condition (Type 1 Diabetes) and my income base was 45K-55K annually I chose tier 2 "Silver Plan" and my monthly premiums came out to $597.00 with $13,988 yearly deductible!!! There is NO POSSIBLE way that I can afford this so I "opt-out" and chose to continue along with no insurance. I received an email tonight at 5:00P.M. informing me that my fine would be $4,037 and could be attached to my yearly income tax return. Then you make it to the "REPERCUSSIONS PORTION" for "non-payment" of yearly fine. First, your drivers license will be suspended until paid, and if you go 24 consecutive months with "Non-Payment" and you happen to be a home owner, you will have a federal tax lien placed on your home. You can agree to give your bank information so that they can easy "Automatically withdraw" your "penalties" weekly, bi-weekly or monthly! This by no means is "Free" or even "Affordable."

There have been several who have said, "Let Obamacare move on. Let it be implemented. It will smother itself." They may have been onto something. Time will tell. For those of you who are choosing to comply, that is the only hope you have left...that Obamacare murders itself. (And, the rest of us who are choosing to not comply, well, we're left to deal with the ramifications of your compliance...and inaction/ignorance at the voting booth - thanks for that...once again.)

If you're one of those who is being scared or are feeling bullied by the federal government into complying with Obamacare, I hope you do realize that if enough of you choose to NOT COMPLY, the system would be overwhelmed and Obamacare most certainly would eat itself alive. Obamacare REQUIRES your compliance in order for it to survive. It will only survive if YOU feed it. Don't feed the wild animals. Allow nature to take its natural course.

Under Obamacare MS Sufferer Will Save *$12 A YEAR* And Receive Less Coverage (Guest Post)

This is the first "guest post" on this blog. I know the author, Sandra, personally and I recently became aware of some of the impending changes to her health coverage due to Obamacare. (A few years ago Sandra was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.) Several days ago Sandra mentioned that she was going to be writing an email to the president and some members of Congress in which she was going to address these new changes in her health coverage which are a direct result of Obamacare. I suggested to her that I should post her email message here on my blog for others to read and hopefully share. She agreed. What follows is the email that Sandra, who has a degree in accounting, will be sending to the president and select members of Congress:

Subject: Health Insurance Disaster

Dear Mr. President and Members of Congress:

I want to let you know that I am AGAINST the new health care law.

Before I get into what has happened to me regarding my health care, I am going to paraphrase a couple things I have heard regarding Obamacare. First, over and over as it was being discussed, we were told "if we like our current plan, we will be able to keep it". Second, if anything, the "out of control" health care costs will go down.

The end of last week I received the proposed new health care option for me from Blue Cross Blue Shield who is my current provider. I was eagerly anticipating this letter because "the unknown" regarding expenses is difficult for me due to my limited income; what a blow it was. The first paragraph of the letter stated that the plan I currently have is NO LONGER AVAILABLE. So much for the "if we like our plan, we can keep it" mantra.

I considered, "Well, maybe they have a better and cheaper plan for me?" WRONG. The plan Blue Cross Blue Shield is moving me into is the SAME plan I TURNED DOWN last Fall when I was reviewing plans because it was so expensive.

The new premium I'll be paying will save me a whopping $1 per month. This $12 yearly "savings" includes the following changes to my plan:

  • My deductible increases from $1,000 to $3,500.
  • My office visits increase from $40 per visit to $60 per visit for up to two visits. Any more than two visits a year are subject to the deductible. Under my current plan I was allowed unlimited office visits at the rate of $40 per visit. The full cost of an office call is $167 per visit.
  • Currently, when I get my prescriptions filled with the generic brand, I pay nothing. Under the new plan, my prescriptions are subject to the deductible.
  • Mental health is not currently covered on my health plan, but the $300 a month anti-depressant I NEED is covered by a financial assistance program through the pharmaceutical company. I have NO IDEA how this will be affected with the new coverage. ***(see below)
  • I also have Multiple Sclerosis. I should be getting an MRI at least once a year to monitor the disease. Right now I am unable to do this because I am unable to afford my current deductible. The increase in my new deductible will further decrease my likelihood of receiving what should be a yearly MRI.
  • The medicine I currently self-inject weekly to help decrease progression of this disease costs right at $4,000 a month. YES, that is $4,000 per month. Luckily, with my current plan and with the assistance of a Multiple Sclerosis support group, I only have to pay $10 per month. Once again I have NO IDEA how this will be affected with the new plan. ***(see below)

I have to admit, at this point, I stopped looking at the comparison between the two plans to see what other better options they had for me. Like I mentioned earlier this "better for me" plan is the same plan I turned down last Fall because it would cost me so much more. It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to do a little mental math on this to see that the expense of the "new and better" health coverage is going to cost more than the premium savings I will be receiving of $12 per year. The story is the same when it comes to my husband's coverage.

You might come back with the argument that "if you qualify", the subsidy will help defray these costs. There are SEVERAL PROBLEMS with that.

First, is the "if you qualify" line. Right now we live paycheck-to-paycheck. (This is after having to close our own business because the costs of being self-employed in the current economy were too high.) Although there is ALWAYS "more month at the end of the money", we do not qualify for several assistance programs now because we earn too much. Some people may counter this with a statement saying we need to budget better. Our paychecks go to the house payment, utilities, groceries, health insurance, gas to get to work (we live in a rural area), and the one fun extra of satellite television. NO VACATION, NO WEEKEND TRIPS, NO FUN NEW SCHOOL CLOTHES (second-hand or hand-me-downs only), and LIMITED SCHOOL ACTIVITIES FOR OUR GIRLS who are both in elementary school. Trust me, I have pared down our expenses to the bare minimum.

Secondly, regarding the subsidies, I still have no idea how the government can afford to pay them. Per what we hear, the medicaid, medicare, and social security programs are financially unsound. So, explain to me how forcing everyone to obtain health care and then offering a subsidy to pay for it will help EASE the financial stress on the above-mentioned programs. It appears to me that by offering these subsidies the number of people on "Medicaid" just increased by the number of people whom qualify for these "wonderful" subsidies. Why not monitor the current programs better, crack down on the people whom are defrauding these programs, and offer a graduated-assistance plan?

By writing this letter, I hope to convince you that the Affordable Care Act is anything BUT affordable to this mom, wife and United States Citizen who lives in Nebraska. Please do NOT fund this program. Waiting until it was passed to see what was in the Affordable Care Act HAS cost and WILL cost the United States Citizens more than we can afford to pay.


Sandra Homolka

*** - The reason Sandra has "no idea" what the effect will be is because no one currently has access to the plan or cost information on the website until October 1st as seen in the screen shot below. It's kind of like before the bill was passed - they had to pass it in order for us to see what was in it. Now, Obamacare has to go into effect (for those that didn't receive a waiver, that is) in order for us to see what is in it:

Husker Coach Bo Pelini Is A Liar - His Comments About Tommie Frazier Are Proof

Screen grab from YouTube video.
Bo Pelini is a liar. After his 2011 comments about us Husker football fans were recently outed, Bo now says he's "sorry" for the comments he made - most likely only because he got caught. (While wanting nothing more than to figure out WHO finally "leaked" the comments he admits he made. - Why? What will that prove? Ohio? Union roots? Where "payback" is a way of life? No proof. I'll drop that...) Yet, in the video below he reacts to the comments Tommie Frazier made a few days ago on Twitter after the (2nd consecutive) loss to UCLA about the Husker program & Husker coaches.

In the video below, Bo proves he hasn't learned a THING that he claims to have learned since being caught on tape bad-mouthing Husker fans in 2011. He bad-mouths Husker legend and College Football Hall of Fame member Tommie Frazier with the same reckless-abandon with which he bad-mouthed Husker fans 2 years ago (minus the vulgarity - only because he was "in public").

It appears as though Bo has no respect for anyone that doesn't fall 100% in-line with what he's working so hard to do. (Whatever that is - maybe he's trying to break every "bad" record Solich and Callahan didn't have time to break?)

Here's what the head Husker wordsmith had to say in response to Tommie Frazier (directly translated from the video below):
You know, since I came back here I've embraced the former players and if he feels like that then, so be it. We don't need him. We don't know...and, uh, uh...that's a shame. You know, you're know...until you sat in this seat, until you've sat and done know anybody can have an opinion. Anybody can uh,...can, can do that, but, you know, that, like I said, it's, it's easy to point fingers when, uh...and stand outside and, and, and uh, throw stones but,, I just take it for what it is.

Right, Bo. You're correct. Tommie Frazier never has endured one day of judgement as a Husker. You're so smart, Bo. I hope you're around for years to come. (Not.) Bo's comments sound more like he's talking to me...or you...or any one of the thousands of Husker fans who DARE to criticize...certainly NOT to a Husker legend who has endured all the criticism while he played and since he played. Bo's not that stupid. Right? Oh, yes he is...listen for yourself...

What we don't need, Bo, is YOU. Take your junior-high-level on and off-field antics to some program somewhere in the country where they will be respected and appreciated for what they are.

It seems to me as though Bo is a liar when he says he's continued to grow over the past two years. Today, he'd still dismiss each and every critical Husker fan if given the opportunity. In fact, the way he dismissed Tommie, I'd guess Bo is still in regular practice of dismissing all of those with whom he disagrees...only in private, however. Bo hasn't learned a thing...and, I seriously doubt he's even capable of doing so.

But, who cares what I think? I'm just a 42-year-old life-long Husker fan. Now, let the "fair-weather fan" comments from the "don't-say-a-bad-word-about-our-Huskers" babies commence...if you'd like me to kiss your ass as Bo wanted the "fair-weather fans" to kiss his, form a line and BEND OVER...maybe we should make that a new Husker pre-game tradition in order to appease all you "real" fans? (If you thin-skins are the "real" fans, perhaps the Husker program is in more jeopardy than previously considered?)

As a life-long Husker fan I understand my comments above are incendiary. Good. I'm simply responding to potential Pelini fans before being responded to. I know you don't mind the vulgar language if you're supporting Bo...neither do I, actually (that's the least of my concerns with Bo - if anything, his vulgarity endears him to me). Have fun. Game on! Perhaps THIS game will be fun? I know I'll win.

Kiss my ass!
(See? I win.)


Think the above was enough "opinion"? You haven't heard nothing yet:
Go Huskers! Go find a new coach! Go find a new conference, too! This year's schedule is the WEAKEST schedule I've ever seen in my life. How are we supposed to get better when we play MOSTLY losers? The Big 10 is a JOKE of a conference. Use all that "new money" from the Big 10 to "buy" a grown-up, decent coach...and stop adding all those new seats to the stadium that all come equipped with an oxygen supply. tee hee

One more: Nebraska will be LUCKY to finish 7-5 this year!

OK, ONE more: Can you fans that attend the games please quit sitting on your hands and pretending as if you're all mute? We now have over 90K in our stadium - can that translate AT ALL during televised games? (It doesn't now.) Do we have to be kicking ass for you to make some NOISE??? The only time we hear you on TV is when things are going much for "the 12th man" being a factor at ANY Husker game! I attended my last Husker game over 10 years ago. Until you Nebraska fans get off your asses and actually pretend to ENJOY being AT the games, I'm not sitting in the stadium with you. My dogs and my couch are much more entertaining and fun to be around during the games. I'll cheer and encourage our team from within my house since it seems to be so OUT OF PLACE at the actual game. Take some of the newly-discovered "passion" you may have for my opinion to the next game with you and YELL IT OUT there...maybe those of us who are stuck at home will know you're actually PRESENT at the next game. Ha!

Now that I've probably offended just about everyone in the state...that's all for now. Let the insults, threats and intimidation begin...(all because I may have an opinion that differs from yours). Bring it.

Greta Interviews Rumsfeld - This is FUN! He SMACKS Obama as a WEAK LEADER (VIDEO!!!)

It's always fun when a member of the Bush administration calls Obama a pathetic leader.........and, that's exactly what Donald Rumsfeld did...multiple times in his interview with Greta last night.

I've transcribed a couple of the best parts for you.

Beginning at 8:44 in the video below...
Greta: President Putin of Russia is calling him (Obama) a liar today because he said that Secretary Kerry said there's no al Qaeda element in the rebels and he points to one group, one rebel faction, that is associated with al Qaeda and al Zawahiri. Ah...President Obama's going to see Putin in the next 24 hours. What is that going to be like?

Don: Well, I think it'll be awkward. The United States of America is faced with a situation where they talk about the "international community", but there isn't an "international community". It's not a "community". It's a group of countries. And the "mechanism", the United Nations, that is there to address questions like this is subject to a veto by President Putin and by the People's Republic of China. Both of whom have sided with the Assad regime. And, it appears that the Assad regime has used chemical weapons and it appears, therefore, that Putin and the People's Republic of China are siding with the use of chemical weapons.

Now, I can't tell you the facts. I would guess there are islamists in the mix of opposition forces against Assad. How strong they are? I just simply do not know. And, I know I don't know. But, uh...we know what happened in Egypt - the United States came away, persuading a lot of the Egyptian people, that we favored the muslim brotherhood and they then took to the streets and tried to have, and succeeded in having, the muslim brotherhood leadership taken out and brought out of office. But the signal has gone out to the world that the United States is not uncomfortable supporting the muslim brotherhood, which I think is a terrible mistake.

The islamists in the world are fundamentally against the "nation-state" concept. And, the world order is based on the "nation-state" concept. The American people prefer the "nation-state" concept and the idea that some religious group would try to impose their views across nation-states, which is what's taking place, and use terrorism and the killing of innocent men, women and children to achieve that is something that, it seems to me, that we ought to be opposed to, energetically. We didn't demonstrate that opposition in Egypt, a terribly important country, and I don't doubt for a minute that the islamists will try to take and play an out-sized role in Syria if they are successful.

So, in helping the opposition to Assad, people have to be very careful that they don't end up with something worse than the Assad regime which is hard to imagine, but possible.

Greta: So, what's the best strategy in light of the position (that) we're in? We have the president saying that there is a red line. He says he didn't draw it - it's drawn by the international community. You've got a Congress...

Don: He DID draw it...

Greta: I'm telling you what he said.

Don: You're kidding. I didn't see that.

Greta: He's saying it's one that is drawn by the international community, by international standards, by Congress, by the American people...

Don: You know, this president has tried to find a way to blame everybody or anybody for everything and leadership requires that you stand up, take a position, provide clarity and take responsibility. And, I can't imagine him saying that he didn't draw the red line, but he, he DID draw the red line.

Greta: In light of...

Don: We have ears.

Greta: In light of where we are...

Don: I've been out in Montana and I must have missed that...

Greta: light of where we stand now............... more part - beginning at 14:18 in the video below:

Greta: What about the British? Are you surprised at the British vote?

Don: No! I think...I think...what is the word from the Bible? The "uncertain trumpet". Is that biblical? Or practical?

Greta: I, I...

Don: I mean that's what we have. We have an "uncertain trumpet". We have mixed signals. We don't have leadership. We don't have a clarion call. We don't have people standing up and saying, "What's important is 'this'." And, "Let's go do 'this'", or "let's not do 'that', let's do something different."

But, to constantly look for someone else to blame, and to meander, and to cause confusion, that isn't something that the United States does.

Greta: Well, I think he thinks...what he's said is he "seeks to punish and degrade their 'capability'".

Don: But only a little bit "because we don't want to get involved with a 'regime change'." I mean...what does it MEAN: "degrade their ability"? (pause) I don't know what it means.

I think that the Congress has a very difficult vote. And, uh, it seems to me that a person could very honorably...I would always begin (by) wanting to support the President of the United States, but, I can understand a vote in the Congress that opposes anything because the president isn't providing the kind of leadership that suggests that we would have an outcome that would be beneficial to our country and to the world.
(Some of the above emphasis was mine.)

Glenn Beck Net "TheBlaze" To Air TWO Pro-Gun Series Cancelled by NBC Sports

Glenn Beck & guns? Awwwww yeeeaaah! (If you're not a long-time listener, you won't get that. Sorry. Really...sorry.)

NBC Sports Network was scheduled to air "Hot Shots" (1st season - as far as I can tell) and "3 Gun Nation" (4th season), two reality/shooting competition shows. But, because of that psychotic nut that murdered innocent souls in Newtown, CT, NBC changed their programming to exclude "pro-gun programming"...I suppose NBC found it offensive to show people who were actually capable of and willing to defend their own lives. (What a strange concept, right?)

Luckily, for sensible people, Glenn Beck exists. His network "TheBlaze" will be airing "Hot Shots" AND "3 Gun Nation" this Saturday beginning at 3PM Central time. Each show is a 1/2 hour show.

Here's more info from the Glenn Beck Radio Program:

To see Stu Burguiere dressed as a woman (again) go HERE. To see Stu as a dick (aka, Weiner), go HERE.

Here's a look at how "3 Gun Nation" (3GN) appeared on NBC Sports last season:

This seems a bit over-produced. Maybe one day the creators of "reality TV" will finally understand that their viewers don't give a crap about their "dramatic pauses" (that's why God made the DVR) or the corny music and/or fake sound effects they add to their shows. Until then, we'll continue to pause, mute, and fast-forward through their BS. Some REAL sound effects would be nice...especially for a TV show that features GUNS.

It's going to take some time to learn "the rhythm" of these 2 new shows. This is a new (& simple) challenge that I welcome. My DVR is already programmed to record both of these shows on Saturday - at 3PM CST. ;)

If you wish to subscribe to TheBlaze online, go HERE or add it to your channel line-up on Dish or on your cable provider. If your satellite company (DirectTV) or cable provider doesn't offer TheBlaze, you may think about asking them WHY they won't allow you to access it. They willingly allow you to access CNN, FOX News, MSNBC, BBC, Al Jazeera, RT (Russia Today) as well as NUMEROUS other "news" channels. WHY won't they allow you access to TheBlaze? If they won't allow you access to TheBlaze, why do you keep giving them money to continue their business as usual?

What the hell is so great about GoPro cameras?


I've seen probably a minimum of 100 videos on YouTube that were recorded with a GoPro camera. What the hell is the point? What the hell is so great about GoPro cameras? Other than: they can be mounted nearly EVERYWHERE (as long as you by the proper mounting hardware - sold separately) & if you buy the right camera/accessories, they can record UNDER water, too. All for a "decent" price. Many people (or binge/impulse spenders) may be able to afford them.

Anyway, it seems that ALL VIDEO recorded by a GoPro camera is distorted beyond reality...there is a "curvature" or a "bend" to all video taken by a GoPro camera. I'd like the earth to be reflected as I see it.....not as some douche in an office that dreamed-up the concept of the GoPro camera tells me I should see it. When recording something up close, the cameras seem FANTASTIC.....until ANY kind of perspective or horizon is entered into the viewfinder. When that happens, their "curved" or "bended" distortion of reality takes over.

Maybe someday they'll make a "reality" lens available for their cute little cameras. :)

Reality, please. As ugly as it sometimes seems, I still prefer it. Thank you.

This ain't it:

The close-up shots in this video are excellent (but all of life isn't lived close-up and under water with pretty fishes floating in our faces - for most of us, that is):

Goodness. If you don't FEEL like you're on drugs after watching this distorted video, maybe you ARE. The curvature of the earth isn't this extreme to anyone on this planet...astronauts who have been into space may be able to relate:


I have a motorcycle. I'd love to have a helmet-mounted video camera...but, not one that will record a distorted earth. I don't get it. Maybe I'm too old. I still prefer reality to weirded-out "video".

Ban Liberals From Rodeos - Clown Banned From MO State Fair For Wearing Obama Mask

The rodeo clown who wore a rubber mask of President Obama at the Missouri State Fair has been banned for life from ever participating in that rodeo again. Liberals should be BANNED from attending rodeos if this is how they react.

"Banning" people from engaging in behaviors with which they disagree is how whiny liberals react when they see something they don't, I figure it is high time that they should be banned from participation for once. After all, we wouldn't want to treat them differently than they'd treat us, right? EQUAL treatment is what they say they seek. Let's give it to them!

What the hell is a whiny-ass liberal doing attending a rodeo in the first place? The thin-skinned little babies have NO BUSINESS being AT a rodeo if they can't even handle A JOKE. Rodeos contain the potential for actual physical injury to participants, animals AND crowd members. (I've seen all three happen.) Furthermore, rodeos weren't designed for people who have no common sense.

Why can't liberals treat President Obama like every other president we've had?

Why is it that liberals can't tolerate it when President Obama receives treatment that is equal to what other presidents have endured?

Why do liberals believe that Obama should receive special treatment?
Do they think he can't handle it?
Why do they think that?
Is it because he's a "white black"?
(If George Zimmerman is a "white Hispanic", then Obama is a "white black". Also, because liberals accuse anyone who speaks out against Obama of being a "racist", I'm figuring that the reason liberals think Obama can't handle equal treatment MUST BE because he is a "white black". After all, everything is about "race" when it comes to this pansy-ass president and his thin-skinned, totally intolerant, ignorant, and rabid supporters in the populace, in Congress, and in the media.)

Granted, Barack Obama has received special treatment throughout his entire life, but that doesn't preclude him, the holder of the highest office in the United States, from being MOCKED. He's FAIR GAME. What's the problem with mocking him, liberals? What are you afraid of? Why do you throw a fit every time President Obama receives TREATMENT EQUAL to that of other presidents?

Here's the story (video included below the story):

Mo. State Fair bans rodeo clown who mocked Obama
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) — The Missouri State Fair on Monday imposed a lifetime ban on a rodeo clown whose depiction of President Barack Obama getting charged by a bull was widely criticized by Democratic and Republican officials alike.

The rodeo clown won't be allowed to participate or perform at the fair again. Fair officials say they're also reviewing whether to take any action against the Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association, the contractor responsible for Saturday's event.

The entertainment during the bull riding contest featured a clown wearing a mask of Obama with an upside down broomstick attached to his backside. Spectators were asked if they wanted to see "Obama run down by a bull." Many in the audience responded enthusiastically.

Numerous Missouri officials denounced the act after video and photos were posted online. Some Democratic Missouri lawmakers suggested Monday that there should be financial consequences for the fair.

The fair said in a written statement announcing the clown's ban that he had engaged in an "unconscionable stunt" that was "inappropriate and not in keeping with the Fair's standards." The fair's press release did not identify the clown.

At least one person defended him. David Berry, a Missouri Rodeo Cowboy Association member who was at Saturday's event, described the clown as a friend and said there was nothing offensive or unusual about his actions. Berry said the Obama character was meant to look like a dummy and that rodeo clowns have long performed such acts, often imitating sitting presidents.

"The joke is not that it was the president," Berry said. "They drag out this person dressed like a dummy and all of the sudden this dummy just takes off running. That's what's funny."

Read the rest HERE.

I don't think I've been to a rodeo in my lifetime where the clown didn't make fun of the matter who the president was at the time. (I haven't been to a rodeo in about 10 years.)

Now for the video of the incident: I warn you, these videos are stupid. You can't see much and what can be heard is not what all the phony outrage is about. I have no idea why the videos weren't combined to make just one video.


More from the story:
But other rodeo professionals said the Missouri fair stunt appeared to go too far.

"It's not unheard of for a rodeo clown, depending on how he reads his audience, to play politics a little bit," said Jim Bainbridge, the senior public relations coordinator at the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA), based in Colorado Springs, Colo. "But this crossed a line. Clearly, when you're suggesting that the president should be injured, it kind of gets to a level of hostility that is inappropriate.

Lovely, now there are liberal pansies running the PRCA??? It was a stupid skit during a rodeo carried out by a rodeo CLOWN! The CLOWN wasn't "suggesting that the president should be injured" - it was a friggin' COMEDY BIT! Lighten up, thin-skins.

Better yet, just TAKE IT, like the right does from the left all the time:

Sarah Palin effigy hung in Halloween display

Glenn Beck hung in effigy:

George W. Bush hung/burned in effigy:

The way the left depicts the right is disgusting and purposely FALSE:

I would imagine that something like the pic below would initially make the heads of the modern liberal loon explode...until they take a closer look at the t-shirt Obama is wearing in the pic. THAT should make it "OK", right?

Well, Bush in a noose ON Obama's t-shirt probably doesn't make the above artwork "OK" for the overly-sensitive liberal of today (and a few RINO's, a few who don't understand or accept "artistic license" and a few others who are just generally easily-offended and a few others who refuse to engage in thought). After all, according to liberals, Obama has to be treated differently than every other president...for some reason.

I figure President Obama is a man...just like every man...therefore, I treat him the exact same way I treat anyone else with whom I politically disagree. Liberals don't like that I do that...which is why I keep doing it.

I drew the above "artwork" in April of 2010, by the way. Yes. I know I can't draw. Both faces were "traced" and they still don't look right - Ha! If it wasn't for Obama's often-photographed "Mussolini pose" - with his nose in the air - I probably wouldn't even recognize him. My "George W. Bush" looks NOTHING like him. The Bush I drew actually looks more like a rubber mask of him. Uh mind. Bush is white. No problem there.
