Sen. Cruz, I'll see your Green Eggs and Ham and raise you...

the Fourteenth Amendment:

The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.

It's 9:30 at night. Do you know where your congressman is?

Mine is three thousand miles away from his office, preparing to keynote a "legislative update" meeting. These "updates" are about what happened in the last session of the state legislature, not the national one...although in the case of the national one the report wouldn't take that long: "we renamed 42 post offices and tried to repeal Obamacare thirteen times."

If you really want an explanation for Miley's behavior...

...google her daddy's song lyrics. Or listen to some of his songs on YouTube.

You just KNOW this is a guy who raised his daughter with an iron hand, and now that it's gone...

Oh, and Miley? Quit going lipstick shopping with Taylor Swift.

The Republicans were listening when they read off the Constitution, right?

On the first day of the last Congress, they made this huge fuss about reading the Constitution from start to finish. Apparently they skipped over this one:

In the 14th Amendment: 4. The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law, including debts incurred for payment of pensions and bounties for services in suppressing insurrection or rebellion, shall not be questioned.

All DU vets - READ THIS!

I just got a letter from the VA, "VA Health Care and the Affordable Care Act." The first item on the second page: "If I'm enrolled in a VA health care program, do I meet the requirement for health care coverage?" The answer: "Yes. If you are enrolled in any of VA's programs below, you have coverage under the standards of the health care law: veteran's health care program, Civilian Health and Medical program (CHAMPVA), Spina bifida health care program."

The moral of this post: if you are eligible to enroll in the VA healthcare program and you haven't done it yet, get off your butt, right now, dig out your DD 214, and get signed up.

North Idaho hardware store owner confirms what we've been saying about ammo

I've recently been relaying the "I'm writing Rep. Labrador as to why there's no ammo in the stores" letters. Today we get a follow-up from the owner of a hardware store who'd written one...and he says:

"The chief aide to Rep. Labrador in Boise called me and said from what he had found out, it was as simple as supply and demand. There isn't any government buying up of powder or ammo as some rumors thought.

We just came back from the ACE Hardware buying show in Orlando, and there I talked to two store owners that are big in guns and ammo. They confirmed the above comment. They went on to say that the biggest problem is that people are hoarding ammo; instead of buying one box, many customers are buying three to ten.

One of these stores buys direct from Remington and has been for years; however, he said some of his orders have taken 18 months to come in. Remington is not opening new accounts for individual dealers. Remington has added a third shift and is now running 24 hours a day. Their production is up 110 percent - more than double - bit their orders are up 300 percent, so they can't keep up.

The chief aide to Rep. Labrador talked to one chain store (Walmart?) and was told that later this fall things may loosen up a little as the manufacturers get better caught up with their orders, but the orders are mostly going to the big chain stores and the little guys are being left out of the chain."

Oh yes...today I had to go to the farm supply store to get some water filter cartridges - they're less expensive there and when you use as many as I do you like low prices. They had quite a bit of .30-06 and 12-gauge ammo...and it was signed, "One Box Per Customer Per Day."

It is time for women to stop playing softball

I've seen women play softball. They're plenty athletic enough to play baseball.

YOLO - the new, modern way to say "Hey y'all, watch this!"

How to get your sexual orientation changed in one easy step

Today I was stopped at a red light in the ultra redneck burg of Post Falls, Idaho. These two idiots in a 70s-era pickup that's got a red cab, blue door, black quarterpanel and white bed pulled up beside me and started screaming at me.

"Hey Fag. Yeah, you. In the blue fag car."

Apparently a fag car is one that's all the same color. But they kept on with this shit as I sat there...and then they started taking pictures with their cellphones.

Wrong answer. I simply reached over to my fag car's passenger seat, picked up my Nikon F4 (a very large 35mm camera), put it on its loudest motor setting, held it up to the window and hit the shutter button. All of a sudden I wasn't a "fag" anymore.

"You mother fucker, why the fuck did you take my picture?"

Fortunately, the light turned green before they could continue.

College fight songs, sung by an opera singer
