    Oh man, we have three more years of the Moron in Chief. I hope that our military is still functional at that time:

    Anybody up for more Obummer:

    El Stupido professors abound in our university system. Why stop at a third term, Prof. Butthead. President for Life!

    We might want to consider hiring Blackwater. This afternoon I saw an interview on Fox News with the founder and former Navy SEAL Erik Prince. Seems they were too good for the Monarch, might just be what the common man needs though to enforce the Constitution and Bill of Rights.

    Here is a link to an earlier interview with Alan Combs, one of Fox’s designated Liberal:

    Bob, did any of your BCs bite as puppies. My nephew’s wife says they are progressing with him but that he likes to bite adult human pack members… 🙁

  5. Robert Bruce Thompson says:

    Yeah, all of them fanged us frequently with those tiny little needle teeth. They soon learned not to bite us, though. Barbara would tap them on the snout and say NO sternly. I just bit them back.

    “Seems they were too good for the Monarch, might just be what the common man needs though to enforce the Constitution and Bill of Rights.”

    Assuming either of those is still worth saving or recovering now; they’ve been birdcage liner for a real long time now, circa 1861 at least. I’d prefer the original Articles of Confederation but I doubt we’ll ever again have the chance to make any of these pieces of paper actually work for us as intended; things are too far gone now.

    In any case, if nothing else, a look at Blackwater and other military contractor outfits like it is useful intel for us; they may be with us or against us; time will tell. I like to think, and hope, like DadCooks seems to, that they will be on our side. The same can be said for active and formerly active military troops and police.

    11 here in Retroville tonight and dropping; at least there’s no wind. Mrs. OFD off to New Mexico and El Paso tomorrow, then back for a few days, and then off to lovely Morristown, NJ for a week, where OFD’s first wife and he worked for a time in the early 90s, and then current Mrs. OFD will be off for almost a month.

    Meanwhile, Fed background check circus continues yet again for me; you’d think I was bucking for CIO of the U.S. I bet that person gets far less checking done than I’m getting, too, esp. in this regime.

    “Billionaire Bunkers: Beyond the Panic Room, Home Security Goes Sci-Fi”
    http://www.forbes.com/sites/morganbrennan/2013/11/27/billionaire-bunkers-beyond-the-panic-room-home-security-goes-sci-fi/

    “Al Corbi’s residence in the Hollywood Hills has the requisite white walls covered in artwork and picture windows offering breathtaking views of downtown Los Angeles, but it has more in common with NSA headquarters than with the other contemporary homes on the block. The Corbi family doesn’t need keys (thanks to biometric recognition software), doesn’t fear earthquakes (thanks to steel-reinforced concrete caissons that burrow 30 feet into the private hilltop) and sleeps easily inside a 2,500-square-foot home within a home: a ballistics-proof panic suite that Corbi refers to as a “safe core.””

    The rich are different from us. I have told the wife if we build our next house on our office property that I want a safe room. And she did not disagree. However, I do not want to sleep in the safe room every night. And my safe room will be 12×15 or something like that.

  8. OFD says:

    What will they find when they eventually leave their safe rooms and safe cores, etc.? I’ll take my chances upside; I’m a bit claustrophobic.

  9. Miles_Teg says:

    Boy, and I thought *I* was paranoid!

  10. Chuck W says:

    Do not worry—we will get a chance to rewrite the Constitution when Canada, the US, and Mexico become one. Just wait: the fact that the Constitution is so ignored, will be the main reason why it needs the opportunity to be rewritten.

  11. OFD says:

    As has been said, the U.S. is now just an interzone between Kanaduh and Mexico and eventually will break up with some overlap between both borders. In order to do the Constitution again they’ll have to convene another Convention and get a majority of states to sign on for it, if memory serves. Not bloody likely anytime soon, or before the collapse, anyway. And different regions will probably opt for different constitutions; bound to be different between New England and the South, or between Texas and Kalifornia.

    One is being worked on as we “speak” for the new autonomous region of Novacadia.
