800 Service

Posted in Family, General on August 31, 2010 by bofh69

Ahh, the joys of being on ‘ye olde bill collector’s “call and pester the fuck out of ’em” list. Nine times out of ten, when I personally receive a call, it is WAY after normal business hours. I make it a point to actually answer those calls so I can bitch them out for calling so late; never giving them one second to bitch me out about said bill. Tonight the phone rang at about ten minutes til eight. The caller ID said 800 service. HA! Perfect opportunity for me to vent on these retards. It was a recording. Damnitall anyway, I was in fine form and looking forward to ripping some $9/hour person for fucking up my evening by calling.

“This call is for Stepian Bastardclanlastname. This call is an attempt to collect a debt from Stepian Bastardclanlastname. If you are Stepian Bastardclanlastname, please press one. If you are not Stepian Bastardclanlastname, please press two. At this point I am chuckling. For whatever reason, this shit seriously tickled my funny bone. Stepian?!?? Ok, crackhead! The Blonde is sitting next to me with that, “what the fuck?” look on her face. I couldn’t do anything at this point but continue to laugh. “Please press three to hear this message in Spanish.” Ok, what the fuck. I press three.

“Este mensaje es para Stepian Bastardclanlastname. Si usted es Stepian Bastardclanlastname, por favor pulse uno.” LMFAO!!! Ok, at this point I am seriously laughing my ass off and I have a big titted blonde looking at me like I had lost what was left of my mind.

It is way too bad that they didn’t give me an opportunity to leave a message. I am sure my Dad could have assisted them in the correct spelling and pronunciation of my first name. I’d have left his name and number for shits and giggles. Para la ortografía correcta de Stepian Bastardclanlastname, por favor póngase en contacto con Stepian Bastardclanlastname en 928-555-1212. Dumbshits. LMFAO!!!!

Man, funny shit happens every day, you just have to be open to see it or hear it.

When the music stopped.

When the music stopped…

(For those who are unaware: At all military base theaters, the National Anthem is played before the movie begins.)

This is written from a Chaplain in Iraq :

I recently attended a showing of ‘Superman 3’ here at LSA Anaconda.  We have a large auditorium we use for movies, as well as memorial services and other large gatherings.  As is the custom at all military bases, we stood to attention when the National Anthem began before the main feature.  All was going well until three-quarters of the way through The National Anthem, the music stopped.

Now, what would happen if this occurred with 1,000 18-22 year-olds back in the States?  I imagine there would be hoots, catcalls, laughter, a few rude comments, and everyone would sit down and yell for the movie to begin.  Of course, that is, if they had stood for the National Anthem in the first place.

Here in Iraq, 1,000 Soldiers continued to stand at attention, eyes fixed forward. The music started again and the Soldiers continued to quietly stand at attention.  But again, at the same point, the music stopped.  What would you expect 1000 Soldiers standing at attention to do??   Frankly, I expected some laughter, and everyone would eventually sit down and wait for the movie to start.

But No!!… You could have heard a pin drop, while every Soldier continued to stand at attention.

Suddenly, there was a lone voice from the front of the auditorium, then a dozen voices, and soon the room was filled with the voices of a thousand soldiers, finishing where the recording left off: “And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air, gave proof through the night that our flag was still there.  Oh, say does that Star Spangled Banner yet wave, o’er the land of the free, and the home of the brave.”

It was the most inspiring moment I have had in Iraq and I wanted you to know what kind of Soldiers are serving you.  Remember them as they fight for us!  Pass this along as a reminder to others to be ever in prayer for all our soldiers serving us here at home and abroad.  Many have already paid the ultimate price.

Written by Chaplain Jim Higgins. LSA Anaconda is at the Ballad Airport in Iraq , north of Baghdad .

Please share only if you are so inclined.  God Bless America and all of our troops serving throughout the world.

I am so inclined, so I shared. H/T to Roy.

Jan Brewer is one tough lady. I’d vote for her in a second. She tells it like it is and doesn’t give a shit who it pisses off. This country needs more like her.

Hey fuckstick, we ain’t seen the damned thing to begin with. And, you ARE a Muslim, you have said so yourself. So either you were lying then, or you are lying now. The point is, you ARE lying, AND everyone knows it. Might be best to shut your piehole. Amazing how anyone can get “elected” to be the head of the most powerful nation on Earth and not have the wherewithal to keep his damned lies straight. The guy is a first class lying douchebag, and the people that voted for him are, well, they were dumb enough to vote for a first class lying douchebag. Sorry folks, go back to school. Pay more attention this time. Use your intellect to vote instead of buying into ‘feel good’ bullshit that, if you had taken a moment, you’d have realized was bullshit. If you can’t get to a point where you can use your brain, do ALL OF US a great big favor, DON’T EVER VOTE AGAIN!

Speaking of the Cockbag n Chief, you reckon the son of a bitch is ever going to own any part of his presidency dictatorship?

So, Habib Salami al Salami thinks the ‘to-do’ about the mosque in NYC has to do with the elections in November, does he? Well he is an ignorant ass raghead then. It has to do with the fact that a shit load of Americans died a few blocks from where they are talking about building the fucking thing. I say let ’em build it. The first day they hold services would be an ideal time to blow it up. Let see how they feel when we kill a couple thousand of their people in one sitting and THEN we’ll talk about tolerance.

Please read and discuss.

“I’m 63 and I’m tired.”

Posted in General on August 31, 2010 by bofh69

By Robert A. Hall

I’m 63.  Except for one semester in college when jobs were scarce and a six-month period when I was between jobs, but job-hunting every day, I’ve worked, hard, since I was 18. Despite some health challenges, I still put in 50-hour weeks, and haven’t called in sick in seven or eight years. I make a good salary, but I didn’t inherit my job or my income, and I worked to get where I am. Given the economy, there’s no retirement in sight, and I’m tired. Very tired.

I’m tired of being told that I have to “spread the wealth” to people who don’t have my work ethic. I’m tired of being told the government will take the money I earned, by force if necessary, and give it to people too lazy to earn it.

I’m tired of being told that I have to pay more taxes to “keep people in their homes.”  Sure, if they lost their jobs or got sick, I’m willing to help. But if they bought McMansions at three times the price of our paid-off, $250,000 condo, on one-third of my salary, then let the left-wing Congress-critters who passed Fannie and Freddie and the Community Reinvestment Act that created the bubble help them with their own money.

I’m tired of being told how bad America is by left-wing millionaires like Michael Moore, George Soros and Hollywood Entertainers who live in luxury because of the opportunities America offers. In thirty years, if they get their way, the United States will have the economy of Zimbabwe , the freedom of the press of China , the crime and violence of Mexico , the tolerance for Christian people of Iran , and the freedom of speech of Venezuela .

I’m tired of being told that Islam is a “Religion of Peace,” when every day I can read dozens of stories of Muslim men killing their sisters, wives and daughters for their family “honor”; of Muslims rioting over some slight offense; of Muslims murdering Christian and Jews because they aren’t “believers”; of Muslims burning schools for girls; of Muslims stoning teenage rape victims to death for “adultery”; of Muslims mutilating the genitals of little girls; all in the name of Allah, because the Qur’an and Shari’a law tells them to.

I’m tired of being told that “race doesn’t matter” in the post-racial world of Obama, when it’s all that matters in affirmative action jobs, lower college admission and graduation standards for minorities (harming them the most), government contract set-asides, tolerance for the ghetto culture of violence and fatherless children that hurts minorities more than anyone, and in the appointment of U.S. Senators from Illinois.

I think it’s very cool that we have a black president and that a black child is doing her homework at the desk where Lincoln wrote the Emancipation Proclamation. I just wish the black president was Condi Rice, or someone who believes more in freedom and the individual and less arrogantly of an all-knowing government.

I’m tired of being told that out of “tolerance for other cultures” we must let Saudi Arabia use our oil money to fund mosques and mandrassa Islamic schools to preach hate in America , while no American group is allowed to fund a church, synagogue or religious school in Saudi Arabia to teach love and tolerance.

I’m tired of being told I must lower my living standard to fight global warming, which no one is allowed to debate. My wife and I live in a two-bedroom apartment and carpool together five miles to our jobs. We also own a  three-bedroom condo where our daughter and granddaughter live. Our carbon footprint is about 5% of Al Gore’s, and if you’re greener than Gore, you’re green enough.

I’m tired of being told that drug addicts have a disease, and I must help support and treat them, and pay for the damage they do. Did a giant germ rush out of a dark alley, grab them, and stuff white powder up their noses while they tried to fight it off? I damn sure think druggies chose to take drugs. And I’m tired of harassment from cool people treating me like a freak when I tell them I never tried marijuana.

I’m tired of illegal aliens being called “undocumented workers,” especially the ones who aren’t working, but are living on welfare or crime. What’s next?  Calling drug dealers, “Undocumented Pharmacists”?  And, no,  I’m not against Hispanics. Most of them are Catholic, and it’s been a few hundred years since Catholics wanted to kill me for my religion.  I’m willing to fast track for citizenship any Hispanic person, who can speak English, doesn’t have a criminal record and who is self-supporting without family on welfare, or who serves honorably for three years in our military…. Those are the citizens we need.

I’m tired of latte liberals and journalists, who would never wear the uniform of the Republic themselves, or let their entitlement-handicapped kids near a recruiting station, trashing our military. They and their kids can sit at home, never having to make split-second decisions under life and death circumstances, and bad mouth better people than themselves. Do bad things happen in war?  You bet. Do our troops sometimes misbehave?  Sure. Does this compare with the atrocities that were the policy of our enemies for the last fifty years and still are?  Not even close.  So here’s the deal. I’ll let myself be subjected to all the humiliation and abuse that was heaped on terrorists at Abu Ghraib or Gitmo, and the critics can let themselves be subject to captivity by the Muslims, who tortured and beheaded Daniel Pearl in Pakistan, or the Muslims who tortured and murdered Marine Lt. Col. William Higgins in Lebanon, or the Muslims who ran the blood-spattered Al Qaeda torture rooms our troops found in Iraq, or the Muslims who cut off the heads of schoolgirls in Indonesia, because the girls were Christian. Then we’ll compare notes. British, Canadian and American soldiers are the only troops in history that civilians came to for help and handouts, instead of hiding from in fear.

I’m tired of people telling me that their party has a corner on virtue and the other party has a corner on corruption. Read the papers; bums are bipartisan. And I’m tired of people telling me we need bipartisanship. I live in   Illinois , where the “Illinois Combine” of Democrats has worked to loot the public for years. Not to mention the tax cheats in Obama’s cabinet.

I’m tired of hearing wealthy athletes, entertainers and politicians of both parties talking about innocent mistakes, stupid mistakes or youthful mistakes, when we all know they think their only mistake was getting caught. I’m tired of people with a sense of entitlement, rich or poor.

Speaking of poor, I’m tired of hearing people with air-conditioned homes, color TVs and two cars called poor. The majority of Americans didn’t have that in 1970, but we didn’t know we were “poor.” The poverty pimps have to keep changing the definition of poor to keep the dollars flowing.

I’m real tired of people who don’t take responsibility for their lives and actions. I’m tired of hearing them blame the government, or discrimination or big-whatever for their problems.

Yes, I’m damn tired. But I’m also glad to be 63. Because, mostly, I’m not going to have to see the world these people are making. I’m just sorry for my granddaughter..

Robert  A. Hall is a Marine Vietnam veteran who served five terms in the Massachusetts   State  Senate.

It looks like the assholes in power are making a run at guns again by way of going after the ammo. Those douchebags will use every underhanded, devious method possible to strip people of their right to bear arms.

Dallas Cowboys fans ALWAYS start each season believing they have a team that can make it to the Super Bowl. This year is no different. However, the bullshit that took place on Saturday night definitely offers up a moment of pause. What the hell is wrong with these guys? First string offense and defense played into the third quarter and neither one could make anything happen. If that is the way the year is going to go, this is going to be one long ass season for this Bastard Cowboys Fan. UGGHH!!!

I’d bet this shit wasn’t an accident. Sounds more like Google showing it’s political colors to me.

Sheriff Joe may have bitten off more than he can chew. I hope he sticks to his guns and continues to tell the Feds to go fuck themselves.

I vote ‘funny’!

Have you ever noticed how liberals only seem to have a sense of humor about shit when it involves  making fun of conservatives. Just let someone make fun of a liberal and they get all ass hurt. Well, as I am sure most of you know, I don’t give a fuck. If something is funny, then it is funny. This shit is funny!!!!

What do you think?
