Serrrrprise Serrrrprise Serrrrprise...

To follow up on Mr. Obama's anecdote during last night's debate... It seems the 'annointed nominee' needs to do some homework on the military if he hopes to command it: (I'll help him)

1. Lt's command rifle platoons, not Cpt's


2. no Taliban weapon can be used interchangeably with a US weapon. (caliber size, parts etc...)


3. When an inquiry like this is brought to you, (as a Congressman) it is immediately forwarded on to Dept. of Defense to be addressed. The findings of that proceeding should have been discussed, but curiously were not. (especially when the supposed shortage took place 5 YEARS AGO in 2003.)



How in God's name is this man still relevant?? Honestly, I feel Gomer Pyle USMC would be a better C-in-C than Mr. Obama.

Hope this makes sense to America...

So the debate on ILLEGAL immigration continues...Why? I have no idea. But for those that think nothing of the word "illegal", I hope this helps to explain why such immigration is wrong and outright ridiculous. (Now before I post the following analogy I found, let me state for the record, I have no problem with immigrants. My family, like many, came to this country as immigrants. However, they did it LEGALLY.)

The argument for ILLEGAL immigration can essentially be brought down to what this author states:

Let's say I break into your house.
Let's say that when you discover me in your house you insist that I leave.
But I say, "I've made all the beds and washed the dishes and did the laundry and swept the floors, all the things you don't like to do.
Im hard working and honest (except for when I broke into your house)

According to the protestors:
a. You are required to let me stay in your house.
b. You are required to add me to your family's insurance plan.
c. You are required to educate my children.
d. You are required to provide other benefits to me and my family (my husband will do your yard work, because he is also hard-working and honest, except for the breaking-in part)

If you try to call the police or force me out, I will call my friends who will picket your house carrying signs that proclaim my RIGHT to be there.

It's only fair after all, because you have a nicer house than I did, and I'm just trying to better myself. I'm a hard-working and honest person (except that I broke into your house)

But what a deal it is for me!
I live in your house, contributing only a fraction of the cost of my keep, and there is nothing you can do about it without being accused of cold, uncaring, selfish, prejudiced and bigoted behavior.

Oh and before I forget, I DEMAND that you learn MY LANGUAGE so you can communicate with me.

**Now then, doesn't that explain how ridiculous illegal immigration is? I thought so too.

May is going to be a great month!

First this!!




Then this!?!





Really can't wait!!

Autoganza!

Today I ventured out into the frigid Buffalo winter, to mill about the Convention Center downtown, and do my annual automobile recon work at the Buffalo International Auto show. So here's the report:

1. I found out that Volvo is discontinuing my model after next year. That really sucks because I love my car, and wanted to get a new one in a year and a half. So needless to say, I was quite disappointed from the beginning of the show (Volvo was my first stop) Now I had to do a lot more work than I thought, in choosing Ilsa's potential successor.

2. Oh Sweet Baby Jesus how I love Porsches. The 911 Turbo was especially sweet! Awesome to dream about but $110k is way out of my price range, and well it's not really a winter car at all.

3. Jaguar's new XF model. Well how can I say this delicately...it blows. IMHO the design is horrendous and the interior leaves much to be desired. So that leaves that out.

4. BMW 3 series. Overrated, Overpriced. Chris Bangle, BMW's lead designer has yet to win me over with any of his new models. Next.

5. Saab-The 93 Aero is quite nice, AWD slated to be out in 90 days, so that is a possibility. It's Swedish, sniffle, just like my Ilsa, sniffle...(maybe a good successor, we'll see)

6. Mercedes Benz C350 Sport-It is no secret to those that know me that I have long had an affinity for the world's first automobile. Their newest model has a gorgeous exterior, but I was less than thrilled with the interior. (it's not bad, just not great) One important lesson for all of you out there: when car shopping, make sure that you choose a car that makes you happy, and that you love. If there are any doubts or some things you absolutely don't like, don't get that car. You have to be in it every day, those things will eventually bug the crap out of you.
(A possible successor, but unlikely)

7. Lexus IS itdoesn'tmatter- I've never liked Lexus, they've never done it for me. This year is no different.

8. Infiniti G35x-OH WOW! I was shocked, a fully loaded, everyoptionyoucanthinkof car, for a reasonable price and all wheel drive. The exterior is beautiful, the interior-heavenly. A 306HP v6 and, "I even liked the color". (definitely the leading contender as of today)

9. Nissan Altima 3.5SE coupe- Again...OH WOW! Loved the new style, exterior is really sharp, interior is very nice, except for the crappy steering wheel, hopefully there are alternate wheels offered. (the second choice as of today)


So there you have it, any votes?? Let me know your thoughts. I have a little over a year so there's time.

As for other highlights, the new Chevy Camaro was there, and it was spectacular. I think Mustang is going to be in trouble deep. The Coke bottle lines of this '09 Camaro were exquisite. Other than that, not much worth while reporting to you all and so I bid the '08 car show adieu, see you next year!

-In other news, I saw Elizabeth:The Golden Age, the other night. I enjoyed Ms. Blanchett's first turn as the Queen, and this one was excellent as well. Clive Owen as Walter Raleigh, what a dashing fellow.

Hooray!

Hooray for G.I. John McCain! Way to trounce your opponents on Super Tuesday!

Hooray for the NY Giants! Thank you, Thank you for humbling the arrogant, crybaby, poor sport Patriots!

Hooray for...well that's pretty much all of the hoorays I can think of today.

-In other news,

Thanks to Mjr. Beers for recommending King of Kong, I was mesmerized by that documentary, and laughed my @$$ off during it.

I also saw The Invasion with Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig. I loved it. It was quite entertaining and was more than what I had expected it to be.

OOOOOH I almost forgot the trailer for Iron Man during the Super Bowl was excellent! I still stand by my prediction that it will be the best Comic Book based movie to date, and will be the benchmark for all future movies of the genre.

That's all for now!

Choices....Choices...

Ok well Primary season is in full swing, and Super Tuesday is fast approaching. The question for many people is, for whom do I vote? Here's my breakdown:

Barack Obama- All I hear is, "Oh he's young, handsome, blah blah...JFK" Really? Really? He has about 10 minutes of political experience and people are seriously considering him for the most important political position on Earth... Think about it, that's like most of you that will read this, seeking the CEO position of your company. Does that make any logical sense? Most likely no....So he's clearly out.

Hillary Clinton- Oh wow where do I begin...Well as a WNY resident I can tell you how much honest attention she's paid us...Slim to None and Slim left town. Hillary as Commander-in-Chief of the most powerful military on Earth. I can't stop laughing at that. Hillary "puppet-mouth" Clinton as someone to rally behind to lead this nation? Really?? She can't even stand up for herself with respect to her galavanting husband's actions. Yet, she can be a stand up president for America? Please...Queen Indecision FlipFlop of "Idon'thaveaplan village" (you know the one it takes to raise children?) is clearly out.

Mike Huckabee-Next.

Mitt "Reed Richards" Romney-Oh that's right I said it. you be the judge...















Well I like the fact that he's a savvy businessman, I think people reacting negatively to his Mormon religion is ridiculous. He is a likeable guy, and has a very strong presidential air about him, but I'm concerned about the whole of the substance behind it. Which leaves me with...


John "G.I.Joe" McCain-Well let's see he has the most experience (I think more than all of the other candidates combined). He is the most qualified to be Commander-in-Chief, bar none. I honestly believe there is nothing that can rattle him, nor prevent him from sticking to his guns. In other words I don't think he's going to put up with any shit, from anyone. Read up about his little vacation in Vietnam, and then tell me whether or not you honestly think his will power, determination, and ability to handle a crisis can be questioned. I also like that he has the ability to achieve bi-partisan goals. Thus, logic dictates he's the best choice, out of field of candidates that I wish was better. Therefore, I am proud to say that I throw the full weight of my support behind Senator McCain. Yo JOE!!
