The Camp of the Saints

As penance for ignoring the blog for over a week and as a reward for reaching the halfway mark on the tedious project I’m working on, the robot presents for your viewing pleasure the lovely and talented Cheryl Cole Tweedy.

Now quit looking at me like that.

Well, as close to here as I can be and not actually be here. This is a drive by post, really.

Work has been kicking my butt lately so I’m obviously not posting as much. I am however working on updating the US Timeline page in my spare time and yesterday added some new entries mentioned in an outstanding post over at Fuzzy Logic. I’m also working to add a few more later this evening or tomorrow. The rueful thing is, there are ever more additions to make to the list. 🙁

Meanwhile, my friend Steve sent me some musical pron that I just have to share. Some Rule 5 in the form of Meytal Cohen.

This chick rocks! Check it out:

What is Rule 5 you ask?

The Other McCain’s Sunday roundup offers a pretty broad example.

As does The Pirate’s Cove

American Power

The Camp of the Saints

The Classic Liberal

Wyblog

Yankee Phil

and The Daley Gator

Catch you on the flip side.

For no other reason than Catherine Zeta Jones hasn’t been getting enough attention lately, as far as I know, and this beautiful lady deserves her fair share of attention, don-cha-know.

Cool! Woodsterman found Bailey the Unknown Reindeer

KurtP has some singing signing Monks.

Joan, you are beautifully eloquent:

I’m curious. Is there some dark harm in believing in a virgin birth at that time, in that place, in those inconvenient circumstances? In believing in such a thing, am I inspired to fear and loathing, or might I share in an utterly unlikely miracle that makes me doubt my own goodness– and to look up for answers instead of around for a stone?

Also, this video, because charity begins at home and Joan asked us to share it. Visit her site for more info.

I may add on later, if time permits.

Merry Christmas, my friends and reader. May God bless you all.

Articles that caught my attention this morning. I’m just bookmarking as I read here, so no particular order. Kind of a stream of consciousness, random sampled information ingestion.

It tastes better than it sounds. Try it.

And finish your milk.

First, your attention please. A lawful gun owner is under attack and about to be wrongly imprisoned for seven years for lawfully transporting guns, unloaded and in his trunk with no ammunition in the vicinity. How can this happen in America?

The Article:

Brian Aitken’s Mistake – A New Jersey man gets seven years for being a responsible gun owner.

Won’t you sign the petition to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie in  support of Brian Aitken?

Thanks to Red for bringing this to our attention.

And please share this story with every freaking person in America.

Next, two more blood boiling moments:

From The Daley Gator – Unfreakingbelievable

And Obi?s Sister – Whhhaaaaaaaaat?

Finally, newly added to the Prime page is this center-punched commentary and motivational manifesto from Mister Pterodactyl.

My take? When you start beat boxing your own political pet peeve or single issue voter scenario, re-read this post. You are going to read it for the first time now, aren’t you? Yes. You should. Then bookmark it. Better yet, print it out and tape it to your refrigerator. Then e-mail it to your friends. You could also have it tattooed to your inner eye lids. OK, maybe a bit much. Maybe.

Hat Tip the Troglopundit,

from where I followed this Mister Pterodactyl link.

Now, why was Mister Pterodactyl missing from the Robotic Blogroll?

I blame the leeches.

Omission happily, humbly corrected.

ps, If you haven’t done so, please be sure to stop by and wish Bob a speedy recovery from whatever bad mojo has been oppressed upon him.

Have you been over to visit the Reaganite Republican lately? Well, if you haven’t, you have some catching up to do. RR’s been fired up of late and has a couple of must read articles worthy of your time.

Monday he sounded the Horn of Helm Hammerhand to rouse the napping TEA Partiers to vigilance in a post titled:

Devious Lame-Duck Dems: This is Why Companies Don’t Allow Fired Employees to Stay Another Month to Pilfer and Sabotage

As legislators return to the Hill today, don’t let the reported “slow start” to the congressional lame duck session lull you into complacency… rather expect the worst and keep your guard up for a sharp left-hook at anytime over the coming weeks.

Please do read the whole thing as it lays out all sorts of nastiness they are planning for what just might be the lamest session of congress evah.

Earlier, RR asked this pertinent question:

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot: WHY is Marco Rubio Backing John Cornyn for NRSC Chair…?

That’s right… the same John Cornyn that tried -and failed- to screw-over Rubio in Florida by putting-in the fix for Sunkist Crist is now running unopposed... and Marco Rubio reportedly supporting his bid to remain NRSC Chairman!

The unfortunate conclusion of which was also covered vigorously at The Other McCain.

Lately, RR piqued my interest with articles discussing backwoods inventive auto repair and international arms and drug smuggling.

In other news, over at American Power, Prof. Douglas points us to another illegal immigrant doing a job an American citizen just won’t do: Fresno State Student Body President.

He also reports that Nancy got the job.

And now for something completely different. A pseudo-man, a myth and an obsession with Sarah Palin’s Uterus. Good times.

Speaking of Sarah Palin and obsessions, Tina Fey Awarded First Douche Nozzle Prize.

One more thing.

Tell your Senators to pass the Tester-Hagan Amendment and the Manager’s Amendment to protect family farmers! – Do it now.

Have a nice evening.

First, a poll question: Does anyone use Google reader anymore? I’ve switched to one called Feedly, which pulls sources from Blogger Following, Twitter and Facebook. It’s been working pretty well, but I’m wondering, what do you guys use?

What I’m reading this morning:

Villainous Company has the totals from the Valour-IT campaign. Yea Marines! Second year in a row! OOH RAH!

Iowahawk places himself on double secret suspended probation. Or something. And in the process, gets his-self an Instalanche! Congrats dood. Now if you could just un-re-dis-suspend yourself, you’ll be alright. Or at least as close as you were to alright before this whole unfortunate business started.

Stacy McCain posts a great Herman Cain video at the end of an equally excellent article: ‘The Demagogic Bloggers on the Right’

Chris W. from My Thoughts on Freedom just published an article at the Tenth Amendment Center: Starving Leviathan: Federal Tax Escrow Accounts

Featured blog, American Power has a Katy Perry Victoria’s Secret preview plus Marxists, and Obama , but I repeat myself.

Little Miss Attila revamped her site, without my permission! (Not that she needed it.) Spiffy!
