Troglopundit

Trog has a great idea about who to include on that list before he’ll agree to submit to such a test.

But let’s think about this for a moment.

The libertarian in me says we need less intrusion, not more, but I understand the premise: people on the government dole should be held to the same standard as their benefactors.

We tax payers  are the 53% so by default we are their (the people on welfare and or food stamps) employers. It’s a shame their job description is so undemanding, really. It’s actually non-existent if you think about it, aside from a set-up appointment and a few phone calls the monetary benefits far out-way the miniscule effort/reward ratio. And really, who can resist government cheese? Certainly not the entire class of people the left has trained to suckle the government teat over the last 50 years. So, I’m in agreement, in principle.

But as long as we’re tossing around ideas…

Let’s require drug tests for Congress and all public employees

by randomly chosen, non-union labs,

or no tests at all.

For anyone

except by the requirements of their employer and even then they should be performance driven.

The point is, Congress should be subject to every condition and requirement for employment they legislate upon the people they supposedly serve. That goes for public employees as well.

That’s not asking too much, is it?

I clicked play.

 

Could.  Not.   Stop.  Alien.   Hand.

Damn you, Trog.  Damn you!

Now it’s stuck in RAM.

Quick. Find some Foo Fighters.

Ahhh, now that’s more like it.

 

BTW, Zilla’s got a baad toothache and needs some tip jar action. How about helping her feel better? You’ll feel better too. Thanks!

From The Troglopundit:

As a Tea Partier, I fully support the right of black Americans to defend themselves against racist lynch mobs.

More background from The Blaze:

Rep. Carson’s Camp Doubles Down After Blaze Exposes ‘Hanging on a Tree’ Tirade

As a fellow TEA Partier, I stand with Trog, even if the news of those lynch mobs roaming the streets has been a tad slow to hit the news outlets. I wonder where the lynchings the Representative refers to are taking place? Oh wait, has he been to Mexico lately? Or perhaps it was the middle east. Easy enough to confuse one with the other, except for the fact that, y’know, there are no TEA Parties in those countries.

Perhaps there should be.

Peer Pressure: Extreme Shunning Edition.

Lance has the story.

The Troglopundit must be stopped!

First, he throws some lighter fluid on the already flimsy kindling that is the “when did bin Laden die” conspiracy.

(BTW, I like deathers too, but sharkers might work as well.)

Now he’s attempting to put to rest every conspiracy in the book!

JFK, The Truthers, The Moon Landing, Obama’s BC (You know where I stand on that one.) and now bin Laden, all in one fell swoop!

Hey, hold on there a minute, Bucko. Leave some meat for the rest of us wolves to chew on, would ya? If you disprove all of them, then we won’t be able to milk these things for more traffic until the Danica Patrick sex tape is released.

What? There is no Danica Patrick sex tape? Heh, that’s just what they told you.

As for bin Laden, everyone knows it was Smitty, in the hide, with the sniper rifle.

And now I hear that Belvedere has found the Mother Ship, Bigfoot and Elvis. Say it isn’t so!

Oh, and here’s an FYI: According to just about everyone on Twitter, the first rule of Seal Team Six is, there is no Seal Team Six.

Got it? Good.

Stay suspicious, my friends.

I haven’t featured a blog lately because well, I’ve been lazy. There, I said it. I was also having a little battle in my tin-clad head about how much the previous posts extolling the virtues of some of my favorite bloggers were beginning to seem cookie-cutter in their formulated ummm… formulation.

I’ve gotten over that.

Now, I think I’ve found some inspiration by way of  Wisconsin Representative, Paul Ryan through a bit of commentary on  Ryan’s recent budget proposal and the firestorm of conservative bloggers squawking about how it doesn’t go far enough.

No sh*t, Sherlock.

It doesn’t.

But the road to fiscal solvency begins with a single step – Confucius said that – and Rep. Ryan should be applauded, not berated, for proposing that first tiny step. (Never mind the fact that it won’t pass. Obama has to sign it, don’t you know?) At least he’s getting the issue out front and center to show the insolvency that is our government’s financial mess and it’s bloated entitlement programs.

Enter Lance Burri, The TrogloPundit, who also happens to hail from Wisconsin. [insert cheese quip here]

Lance has taken the Ryan budget argument to a logical conclusion. Here’s a large excerpt:

It’s an incredible thing to consider: a budget plan that cuts $6.8 trillion in spending over the next 10 years; that cuts deficits by $4.4 trllion over the same time frame; that actually reduces spending, but still isn’t completely balanced.

A plan that’s going to be ravaged for its cruelty and hatred, for its sheer indifference toward human suffering, for its blatant choosing of corporate profits over hardworking families. [‘bot – never mind the sheer demagoguery.]

It’s Hitler’s next coming, except without the love and personal warmth.

This should tell us two things:

  • This is how far gone we are. For a plan this bold to still not solve the problem means the problem has become so big you can see it from space.

And:

  • Whatever the final budget bill is, it won’t be anywhere near as good as this.

That’s the nature of adversarial politics. Sure, I think we should just take Ryan’s plan and pass it. You think I’m being incredibly stupid: budgeting is easy, after all! Just figure out how much money you have, and spend it. Don’t spend more than you have!

But. No matter what you do – no matter how reasonable, thoughtful, necessary your plan is – somebody’s going to hate it. Whether out of ideology or good old-fashioned American political opportunism, somebody (or, more likely, a large group of somebodies) is going to spend a great deal of effort casting you as a monster for even thinking about it.

Go ahead, read the whole thing. It’s worth the time and Lance thoughtfully included video of Rep. Ryan explaining his “Path to Prosperity.”

Speaking of Ryan’s proposals, when is the last time a politician uttered words like those that weren’t just platitudes and hokum? Not since Reagan if I recall, and Kennedy before him, but I was a mere notion of a circuit board then.

So, aside from the one article, why the feature?

Respect.

For the instinctive wit, logic and brevity of presentation. And having been at it since 2004 or before, longevity. Don’t dismiss the gig at Right Wing News or the Million Hits Club either. I could also point you to the snarkish commentary, his uncanny ability to make a humorous and relevant motivational poster out of every situation, or the unbelievable fact that a neanderthal can operate a keyboard or computer at all.

Look, the main thing is, he links to me. So there’s that. And he’s a nice guy, as far as evil geniuses go.

Hell, with a bit of coaxing and a small fee, I could go so far to say it would be good to see him elected to some sort of political service.

V. P. for instance.

How about a Ryan – Burri ticket? He would certainly be better than Joe Effing Biden.

Barring that, how about Dog Catcher? Joe Effing isn’t even qualified for that one. Besides, I hear cavemen are really good at that hunter-gatherer thing, especially with a light saber.

 

So there. You may as well give up all hope for winning the second round too ’cause, you know, I cheat.

But when I cheat, we all win.

Thanks to Carol and Bob, of the Belvedere, to whom I paid grossly obscene amounts of imaginary monies in order to affect their unquestionable, peculiar, impeccabilties.

And to garner blog hits.

Speaking of blog hits, The Trogolator, his-own-self, passed the million-hit milestone this weekend.

And if you’ve ever passed the One Million-Hit Milestone, you know just how painful it is…

…for the rest of us.

Well, in my defense I was having some trouble getting the whole ‘prostate + hooters’ thing reconciled in my head, then it occurred to me that there was no need for confusion… or is there?

This one’s for you, Odie, Christopher and Kid :)
