Troglopundit

Merry Christmas fellow automatons! And you humans too.

Update: One of my favorite Christmas songs:


Here’s a small sampling of Christmas posts from the Robot’s blogroll:

The Troglopundit found some beauties singing well, beautifully.

Angel got jazzed up for Christmas, Ray Charles style. Good stuff there, Angel.

Chris has a few Christmas messages for us. “…this coffee cup is my Christmas gift to you“, “The Best Christmas Tip Story Ever” and “Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hugo Chavez wish you a very Nuclear Christmas

My good friend Steve, of Motor City Times has been hitting the Christmas music for the past week or two. Let’s see if I can find a common tag over at his place to link to them all. Hold on.

Now, I swear that I wrote that prior to going to Steve’s site. Check it out, he’s waaaay ahead of me. Great minds and all…

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.

With todays excursion into the Rule 5 jungle, we find the very lovely Gemma Atkinson, lounging in various pieces of lingerie.

How fortunate for us.

Rawr.

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.

The Troglopundit has posted a video of what he deems “The most adorable spider I’ve ever seen” which reminds me of a video I posted on the other blog. Thanks to Lance for reminding me of this. Although now that I watch it again, some of these spiders might be less than “adorable.” Some might even be classified as “dangerous” or may be from Chicago.

See for yourself:

It’s come to this. Obama has exhausted all options short of apologetically bowing to Osama bin Laden  himself. (Oh, he did? Never mind.) So exhausted are our options he must now call on the only unused item in the arsenal and he’s chosen the blogosphere’s very own Smitty to wield it.

The Troglopundit honors Smitty with his own neolithic version of a send off. Careful following the link. Be sure to place any beverages on a flat surface. Wouldn’t want to ruin any keyboards.

No Runny Eggs has posted his own, along with Steve Burri and No Sheeples Here.

UPDATE: YankeePhil chimes in.

Congratulations are in order for owner/journalist R.S. McCain and for bottlewasher/janitor Smitty of The Other McCain because they passed the 5 million hits mark yesterday morning around 9 o’clock. Managing the monumental task in just over two and a-half years from March 2008. Impressive. Most impressive.

Robert Stacy McCain, the originator of such memes as the “Full Metal Jacket Reach Around” and babe blogging or what has simply become known as “Rule 5” has been a great asset to the blogging community and to the the political landscape of America these last years. No matter that his talents seem to go under appreciated by some convention circles. Your work is definitely worthy, Stacy. Even if your tenacity sometimes borders the line of cyber-stalker.

Then again, I’m looking to frame my first restraining order shortly so, I really have no room to offer advice. Whatever works for you bud. I say go for it.

Sadly, Stacy uses the occasion of the announcement to point out that our good friend Smitty, is being called to serve our country once again in the capacity of a REMF. I must admit stupidity to this new (to me) acronym and at first thought along the lines of MILF. But that brought to mind such horrible imagery, that my robotic brain threatened overload and quickly discharged the idea. After a quick search it turns out, happily, that REMF is shorthand for “Rockey Mountain Elk Foundation.” While the letters don’t match, it is still reassuring, although only slightly. If the Taliban are hiding in the Rockies, then we may very well be FUBAR.

Smitty, I hope you are able to rout the bastards out with God Speed and return to your rightful place of judging the worthiness of Rule 5 entries as soon as you possibly can. My sincere thanks and prayers go with you.

Be sure to stop by The Other McCain and congratulate them on a job well done.

Here’s to your next 5 million, fellas. May you reach that milestone in half the time.

H/T Troglopundit, Wyblog, Obi’s Sister, The Camp of the Saints, No Runny Eggs

I love it when someone points out the obvious. Especially when they do it in an entertaining way. And when they can thumb their nose at the government run media while doing it, hey, it’s a bonus! That’s why I’m glad to see that our resident cave-man blogger has decided to do just that with regard to what I like to call the other MSM, the Muslim Silent Majority. Well, to be truthful, I just thought of it, but it does fit the description, doesn’t it?

The question is, just where are the peace loving Muslims who oppose any violence in the name of Islam? The Troglopundit has a few well thought out suggestions for both MSM’s.

Here’s the thing: I think it really is a small minority of Muslims who want to strap explosives on and pull the cord in the middle of a crowd of soldiers (shoppers, diners, schoolchildren) for Allah. I think that small minority is giving the rest of Islam a bad rap.

I have no evidence to back me up. In fact, the very fact that the MSM isn’t pushing a “peaceful Muslims criticizing violent Muslims” storyline would seem to contradict me. If there were anything there – anything at all – the MSM would be all over it, if only to prove that Americans are jingoistic ignoramuses.

But. If I’m right, why the hell don’t all the other Muslims – the non-murderous types – stand up and tell their more violent brethren to sit down and shut up?

Hear! Hear!

I would love to see these people who proclaim peace begin pointing their fingers at the radicals causing all the intolerant trouble, but that’s the problem with tolerance, how far does one take it? If I am tolerant of ones misdeeds to the point of becoming an accomplice to illegal activity and violence, I become as guilty as if I had committed the act myself. In other words, if you look on and do nothing when you see evil being perpetrated, you have the onus of that evil upon you as much a the evil doer.

Someone who can rationalize that sort of turn-your-head attitude with regard to people of their own religion, but judge someone else by some supposed higher standard has twisted reason and justice to the point of being unrecognizable and deserves no tolerance at all in my book. Nor will they receive any from this robot.

I can barely write abut these issues without the veins in the side of my neck protruding in a throbbing fashion. Much to his credit, Lance takes a much calmer approach. I would encourage you to see for yourself.

Thanks to Pundit & Pundette for the feature! Welcome P & P readers!

Been swamped with work and not much time for blogging so without further ado…

Happy Labor Day Weekend comrades!

Here’s a little roundup of great posts from the Robo-Reading List to help you through the next few days.

First, Carol of No Sheeples Here is participating in Project 2996, which for her part she honors the slain of 9/11/2001 with a tribute a day until Sept. 11. A very touching way to remember the heroes of that day who lost their lives. Carol’s blog has been featured blog this week, so please be sure to visit her site and let her know that an imaginary robot does indeed dream of electric sheep. Thank you.

As a side note, I’m considering changing the title of “Featured Blog” to “Honorary Android” or something close like “Android Army.” What do you think? Suggestions?

Next up is the blogosphere’s very own Stacy McCain, who truly earns the  title of “Roving Reporter” this week by traveling all the way to Alaska to cover some Republican primary or something. I think Joe Miller’s name came up at some point. While he was in the neighborhood, he stopped in to check on the Palin family.

As Red said, “How freaking cool is this?”

Speaking of my favorite redhead, she and the crew of Corndog are in the process of making the move to Texas and could use a little help for the U-Haul. Drop by over there and throw a couple of bucks in the tip jar.

So, one half of The Other McCain is off playing world traveler, rubbing elbows and rattling the tip jar no doubt trying to get enough shoe leather funds for a ride home, while Smitty, the balder and sometimes bolder half is covering everything else it would seem. Some highlights:

Recovery Summer?

Delaware Castle?

NYC GZM?

Social Conservatism?

SOS: Sissypuss, Obama, And Skippy

Staying on the election theme, my Jersey buddy Russ, the constant campaigner has been working his arse off for another favorite of mine, Anna Little who is up against some huge opposition in the form of Frank Pallone. Russ exudes confidence in his post over at The Resistance:

I’m telling you right now, as you sit there, that this is the single biggest House electoral upset in history in the making.

Just a sample of what we’re up against:

  • 22-year hard progressive incumbent (proud author of PalloneCare and cap-and-trade)
  • $4 million warchest (the richest in the house)
  • 2 to 1 D to R demographic in the 6th District (34-17)
  • Ridiculously gerrymandered District intended solely to keep Frank Pallone in office (just look at it sometime)

But we’re gonna win.

Here’s a link to Anna’s donation page. It takes money to win these campaigns folks. Either we give now to the candidates who will fight the beast or the beast will take your money anyway to redistribute as they see fit. The choice is yours.

I must add that all of the above causes are ones I consider most worthy. I wouldn’t recommend a donation to someone I haven’t personally donated to myself.

Now for something more light-hearted, The Troglopundit attempts to overcome yesterday’s Eva Mendes hotness with a single Megan Fox pic. Weak, my friend, weak, but still hot!

Lance also asks a relevant question.

Little Miss Attila brings up a good point about Chuck Norris:

Of course, there’s the issue of whether we should be listening to a guy who loses his damn gun in every single movie he’s in . . .

Then again, he is Chuck Norris, why would he be carrying a gun if not to lose it for the plot line?

Ha! I just used “Chuck Norris” and “plot line” in the same sentence. Where’s my award?

Bluegar. ROTFL Cougar. Bluegar. Whatever, watch the vid.

How does one spell “Bluegar” anyway?

Ruby Slippers points us to Dallas, TX Representative Eddie Bernice Johnson’s apparent mis-allocation of funds to her own relatives and the poor job she puts forth in defense of her actions.

Since 2005 Johnson has awarded a total of 23 scholarships to family members.Johnson additionally awarded scholarships to 5 other students who did not meet the residency requirements specified by the nonprofit Congressional Black Caucus Foundation

Eddie Bernice Johnson is also pointed out on this blog’s Texas 11 page, which  highlights the 11 Texas Representatives who voted for Obamacare, but the main reason for that page is not just to highlight those Socialist scumbags but to call attention to their opponents. Eddie B. Johnson’s opponent is the most worthy Stephen Broden, a Constitutional Conservative who has been a featured guest on the Glenn Beck Show on several occasions and who I believe spoke at the Restoring Honor Rally in D.C. last weekend with Dr. Alveda King although I did not see that part personally.

Hmmm, I think I just found a nomination for next weeks Ten Buck Fridays poll. Steven Broden!

Yankee Phil brings some Dennis Miller and MMMMMM, Bacon.

Cassandra over at Villainous Company plays Queer Eye for the Oval Office Guy, with hilarious results. And don’t forget the comments. Out. Freaking. Standing. Stellar work, Madame.

Gator Doug asks, “Hey kids, who is ready to see Alan Grayson make an ass of himself again?

Just what is a Rebel 5?

American Perspective (Formerly MAinfo) brings us Natale Portman and some good news of a bunch of Muslim protesters being told to STFU.

Proof Positive has a linkfest of his own going.

American Power notes that fewer young people are identifying as Democrat and comments on the queering of the school system.

Donald Douglas also reminded me of this gem from Fleetwood Mac, Rumours.

Fuzzi Slippers has been on some kind of blogging hiatus lately, but this piece is worth a link and two reads:

White Guilt and Gynoguilt: How the Left’s Culture of Victimhood Undermines Equality

Hope all is well in your world, Fuzzi 🙂

Doug Ross re-examines the Chrysler dealership closings at length.

Kristin is also a little scarce on posting of late, but what she finds time to share is well worth the time. Just beware the Attack Chicken!

Conservative Hideout tallies the damage from Obamacare.

Adrienne has a great roundup of her own.

Motor City Times has some hops inspired music to my tin ears along with another collection of great links.

Obi’s Sister has a final word on the GZ Mosque.

Bride of Rove has a little fun with the Beck Sex Tape fiasco.

Pundit and Pundette cue up a laugh track.

Happy Blog Day you drun-ken auto-ma-ton…

Happy Blog Day to ‘Bot.

*hic*

Thank you, thank you. You shouldn’t have. Really.

“Speech! Speech!”

Well, if you insist.

Blogspot

There once was a somewhat shy *cough* never outspoken *hack* designer/drummer *blech* who could no longer withhold his views from the world, or at least the few people outside his circle of friends who might listen to those opinions. He felt compelled to begin an online journal to hopefully spare some of his close friends from the verbal outrage at what was happening in America. Once started on that journal, it soon became a journey, to where no-one knows, but for now has been a source of developing friendships and personal edification that he will never forget or regret.

I, being he, have met some fine patriotic people online in the blogging community and have come in contact through their writings with many more whom I probably will never have the opportunity to meet. That is no fault of any one, it’s just an observance that the number of conservative bloggers is growing. This is a good thing. I love it.

Unlike Stacy McCain, of The Other McCain, I have no aspirations of taking over the entire blogosphere, though I certainly don’t hold it against him that he wishes to do so. More power to you Stacy. I simply want to add my voice to the many who are crying out that our government has been transformed from its original purpose and was/is being further transformed in an exponentially quicker pace into the monster our Founders warned us against. That fight still remains. To what end is a matter on which I pray daily. Can I get an Amen?

I’m happy you have all accepted my quirky, jerky, rambling attempts at humor and hopefully motivational or educational essays and rants. You really know how to make an abby-normal guy feel welcome. As Carol of No Sheeples Here likes to say, I’m proud to be standing guard over liberty with all of you.

Thinking on how to commemorate the first anniversary of my online life, I thought I might trace back and find a few highlights to share with you. A sort of naked baby pictures type of thing, except without the baby, or the naked.

OK, some will be babes, and some will be nearly naked.

Looking at the stat counter at the old site, I see the most popular post was a video found at iOwnTheWorld that is still the funniest takeoff of Babes in Toyland I’ve ever seen. iOwnTheWorld also gave the Robot a huge present on Christmas Day by linking their entire graphic to the Robot. I know they didn’t have to do that and was nearly glued to the site meter Christmas Day watching the hits come in. What a freaking nerd I am. 🙂

Thank You, iOwnTheWorld.

Speaking of babes, coming in a close second was a post titled Christina Hendricks vs Adriana Lima vs Megan Fox, which, now that I’ve linked it again here, all you babe watchers will hit it some more and possibly bump it past the other post. Sex does sell. I’ve learned this fact from Stacy McCain’s post on How to Get a Million Hits on Your Blog in Less Than a Year. Yes, folks, Rule 5 is alive and well at Mind-Numbed Robot, and is sitting on the porch, drinking a beer, watching the babes go by thankyouverymuch.

The third most popular post from the other site was a quickie from an email which happened to include some more hotness. It was picked up by The Dailey Gator and Bob Belvedere and was entitled License For Your House Included in Cap and Tax!

If I had to pick, the one post from the old site that gave me the most satisfaction was Reclaiming the American Spirit which was picked up and quoted from again by Bob, along with dozens of other bloggers who were shouting against the tyranny taking place in the form of Health Care Reform. I remember the pride I felt being included in the company of those proud patriots, knowing in my heart the love of freedom we all feel and the anger and desperation we all had at that very moment. I know we still do, but this is a happy day, right? RIGHT!?

The fourth most popular post from the old site was a few nice ladies holding flags. What could be so menacing? I felt like it was linked by damn near the entire blogiverse, including The Troglopundit, Obi’s Sister, The Daley Gator, The Other McCain, Fishersville Mike and American Power.

Almost everywhere that is, except Instapundit, as Lance noted in one of the more backhandedly selfish comments I’ve seen at the Robot:

Could somebody get this guy an Instalance, please? I could use the instaseconds.

Ha! That Troglopundit. What a card. Always hitching a ride on someone else’s train. But who am I to judge? It seems to be working for him. Maybe one day I’ll have the opportunity to buy my favorite unfrozen caveman a beer.

Dot Com…

The Robot moved to the new digs on April 26 this year. Four months ago. The old site had 9,400 unique visits according to Sitemeter at the time. I have no idea if that’s good, bad or what in the big scheme of things. Since the move the traffic has tripled and I have no doubt that it’s due to the help from my friends at The Resistance: Steve, Matt, Mike, Doug, Chris and the ever campaigning Russ. Not to mention my fellow Gulf Coast neighbors Jeffrey and Red. Thank you guys for the links and encouragement.

The top four posts on the new site so far are:

  1. Daisy Fuentes Pictures Day– for obvious reasons.
  2. Rule 5 Saturday – Julia Stiles – see above.
  3. Someone Said This Was Funny– someone on Stumbleupon loves this pic. Someone else on Stumbleupon hates this pic. I tell you what, Bub, I hate it too, but not because its defaming your favorite President.
  4. Dennis Prager Q & A At University of Denver– a great lesson. The great lesson? Certainly one of them.

My personal favorite posts from the past four months were the Robo-Love Experiments #1, #2 & #3. Of the 3 I like the third the best. They were a lot of fun and a challenge at the same time, even if, as Belvedere says, I need help with my naming conventions.

I’m over a thousand words now in what was going to be a quick “thank you for your support” post, and I’m sure I missed a bunch of folks who need a good thanking, including the frequent commenters like  Bunni, Opie and Georges.

If I missed you, please feel free to cajole your spouse, significant other or some bum on the street to give you a solid thanking for me, right smack on the backside, where you’ll remember it.

Thanks again for visiting the Robot. It’s been a memorable first year. I’m proud to be among you who will stand up and say No More!

Tomorrow it’s back to the trenches for me. In the mean time, show some Robo-Love and BUY A FREAKIN’ T-SHIRT!

Or, as Stacy and Smitty like to say, HIT THE TIP JAR!

Cheers! ~ ‘Bot

UPDATE:

Thanks to Chris Muir for the mighty DayByDay mention. You Rawk!


UPDATE II:

I’ve added Chris’s strip featuring the ‘bot and while I’m here I wanted to mention a few other bloggers who have helped your humble host maintain his sanity while we watch with horror and still struggle against the Dem-olition of our country.

Oh, and look what Bob gave me, gee, just what I always wanted. Kari Byron portraying Freddie Kruger.

Thanks Bob. I’ll cherish her as long as I live, which may not be long. This is like owning a toy that can’t be toyed with. Something tells me your female offspring are to be feared, my friend.

That contraption on her hand says she’ll do the popping of these balloons, don’t you know.

The symbolism here is too deep for my circuitry. I feel a few transistors going into overload.

Must. Stop. Staring. At. Kari.

OK, enough update. My boss is coming. Shhhh. Kari, watch out with those pointy things already! Shh!

It’s been a little while since I’ve done a link fest. Really not sure I’ve done any at all since the trilogy of Robo-Love Experiments #1, #2 & #3 that turned out to be a big hit with my friends in the blogosphere. Happy you guys liked them.

This one however will be a bit simpler and just offer a sincere thank you to all the blogs that have linked your humble ‘bot in the past month or so.
