Found at American Digest, who says:

As a boy I would have strangled a thousand kittens to have something like this. As a man, I feel the same way.

Metropolis II

As I commented at A.D., Awesomely useless. I want to see it in person.

I’d bet Steve over at Motor City Times would get a kick out of this.

Once upon a childhood, it would have never occurred to me that a few ne’er-do-wells from the counter culture of the Sixties and Seventies might come of age and into positions of power. Nor did it cross my then incubatory mind that those protesters become-leaders could, in good conscience, exercise ever more control over the people they claimed to have been protesting for. I see now they weren’t “for” anything, always “against” and now that they hold the reins of power, the new boss is sadly, worse than the old boss. What’s so puzzling is perhaps the tactic. They are still protesting. Only now it is we the people they protest against and from our very own ivory towers no less!

Rapunzel! Rapunzel! You have been corrupted by the power of the tower! Let down your golden locks so that I may grasp your train to yank you down from your smugly throne!

One struggles to describe the depths of hypocrisy and down-right evil these professed elites use against the very people who unwittingly or unwillingly fund their thievery in the name of an unachievable equality: The Equality of Result. It is an easy sale to make vs. the Equality of Opportunity granted in our Constitution because so many people love to hear that they are owed something from you or I for a long ago grievance they themselves never suffered. By using such lies they leech the life’s blood of industry, squelch the motivation to succeed, and rob the people of  self reliance.

Yes, here we are again, at a point in time which through over taxation and a long train of abuses, people in our government attempt to dis-inspire our minds, disintegrate our communities, disenfranchise our unions, misappropriate our monies, and dissect our humanity as a specimen in a lab experiment or TSA line. Our lives have become just another paper statistic. Their failings another reason touted as to why we need to be led by those who know more. Our dreams are merely stepping stones for their rise to power, and our achievements are quickly seized upon to be made theirs. We after all, knew nothing before their arrival and so can do nothing of merit without their benevolent hand.

I find it simultaneously interesting and disconcerting, at the same time. (heh)

Interesting to observe the chess play, watching and listening as sophistry passes for enlightenment, I’ve seen enlightenment and you have to look no further than the Constitution and the associated writings of a few truly wise men that lived just over a couple hundred years ago. So sad that the supposed scholars use their knowledge of the thing to destroy it rather than repair what needs fixing, which, in my opinion would be a thorough de-lousing.

Disconcerting that while they claim to be for the common man, they invariably show themselves to be liars and demagogs, favoring only the oligarchy and aristocracy that an out of control government exhibits instead of putting their faith in the tried and proven abilities and hard working character of the American people, or any truly free people for that matter.

Beware those who promise happiness as a right in the guise of hope. Happiness can never be guaranteed.

Beware those who decline to honor your sacrifice but who also demand it.

Beware those who profess fairness while denying respect. From them you will receive neither.

Reflecting on this situation, and drinking a few beers, has inspired me to take a couple of icons from that Aquarian Age and create a couple of new designs intended to poke an irony stick in the eye of those former beatniks who bought the communist/socialist/corporatist lie and walked this country and the world ever closer to Armageddon. Notice that I’m not pointing out a particular party. I’m pointing at the Progressive Movement in particular. Both parties are rife with those liberty devouring termites.

At any rate, here are the new designs for the Robo-Shirt line. By offering these for sale I am willingly committing an act of American Capitalism and I thumb my nose in the face of an anti-business government.

I also realize my timing in regards to the Christmas shopping season isn’t as, um, timely as it should be to get these printed and offered for the season. Which is to say, I hope to have them ready for Christmas but I can’t say for sure. Hey, the muse just hit me, one can’t time such a thing.

I’m in the process of selecting the manufacturer, so in the mean time, feel free to comment on and offer suggestions as to what you would like in the way of size and type. I’m thinking of offering some tees tailored to the ladies this time also. As before, the shirt will be black. I simply don’t have the funds to offer other colors at this time. Besides, these need a black shirt.

As to meaning of the designs themselves, if some further, individual explanation is required, here you go:

The “Peace thru strength” is self explanatory, or should be. It is not meant to tout the fact that our ancestors used the nuke, but to lament the fact that they felt forced to. I would have done the same, considering what I know of the circumstances, then I would have been forced to live with the consequences, as we all still do.

The “Have a nice day” is meant as a warning to those who would buy what a charlatan wishes to sell, only to find out too late the road leads to damnation. That, and I like the juxtaposition. I found it humorous and at the same time, alarming.

Hope you like them or at least find them thought provoking. ~’bot

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 time for a break from the political realm.

Time to step back for a moment and remember that beauty, and reason for wonderment abound.  It’s all around us. Take for example, this lovely lady, Veronika Zemanova. The good Lord has blessed this young lass with beauty and talents galore. It is our duty to admire his handiwork.

That’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it.

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.

The Other McCain features the Robot today with the The Full Metal Jacket Reach-Around Award!

Welcome The Other McCain Readers!

Guess I should straighten things up around here. Just step right over those beer cans, I’ll get to those in a sec.

Thanks to you Stacy and Smitty or whoever it was I paid to rig the FMJRAA lottery. *nudge nudge*

—————————————-

Speaking of ToM losing their mind, Stacy McCain is unfortunately losing the services of an incredible mind, and all around nice guy for a while.

It may be fitting that Smitty makes his deployment announcement today, Veterans Day, as he prepares to ship off to warmer, sandier, more hostile places. He also takes the occasion to offer us some righteous motivation.

A small sample:

… Liberty ain’t cheap, and rejecting Progressivism may resemble pain for a while. That’s not pain. That’s Socialist weakness leaving the country, and don’t let these liars sell you otherwise.  Stand and deliver, the way a Progressive cannot, for, at heart, modern Progressivism is a synonym for cowardice.

Hear! Hear!

In saying see-ya-later, he requests:

If I’ve done you any favors, I’d ask that you make this the single most linked post in this blog’s history.

I’m all over that.

Get back to the states as quick as you can, Smitty. Here’s praying for your safe return.

And Sir Smitty, a word of advice: If you see the Grail Shaped Beacon, follow it. Face the peril!

Never met a communist he didn’t like:

Obama finds kindred spirit?

“I am glad to meet an Indian communist. I am told that communists have been part of the (Indian) political mainstream,” Obama told CPM Politburo member Sitaram Yechury at the Rashtrapati Bhawan banquet as they were introduced and both shook hands.

He might just as well have said “fellow communist.”

————————————————————–

And while Obummer is yucking it up with his new found commie friends and Bernanke is devaluing the dollar, the World Bank president lobbies for a global currency system:

“The world needs a new global currency-setting system”, – World Bank President Robert Zoellick has stated in Singapore.

——————————————–

Tell me again why this is happening?

Are they really that good at what they do? I suppose it depends on how you look at it. If for instance, you think 22% actual private sector unemployment and bailing out underfunded pensions and banks and insurance companies all on the public’s back are all good things, then by all means, let’s pay government employees twice what the average private sector employee makes. Never mind the fact that they don’t produce a single marketable product, which is what an economy should be based on.
Morons.

Sorry, broke off into a rant there.
Here, wash your ears out with some really nice guitar work, newly discovered today.
My favorite YouTube comment:
this song really got to me! but the part after 5:16 sucked ;-)

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

A belated happy day to a couple of good friends in the blogosphere.

Be sure to wish a happy blog anniversary to:

The Current (1yr)

and

Reaganite Republican (2yr)

Tell ’em a rusty robot sent ya.

Somewhere on America’s left coast, behind the lines, stands one of the last bastions of hope for Conservative principles in California. A refuge for lovers of liberty who find themselves stuck in a beautiful landscape that hypnotizes all but the strong minded, luring them into a deadly world of Socialist thought that sucks the pride of self reliance from their minds and clouds it with the promise of unearned entitlements. That Fortress of Freedom is the blog American Power, and the luminary of that site is Professor Donald Douglas.

I’m often amazed at the tenacity required to produce the volume of quality articles and insightful commentary published by Prof. Douglas. Articles that are surely produced from an unquenchable love of America’s founding principles and a fire that grows brighter and stronger when fueled by the inane and asinine arguments of the liberal and socialistic pseudo-elites we battle today.

Professor Douglas, I’m certainly thankful you can withstand what must be a daily onslaught of leftist dogma evidenced in California these last couple of decades. Thank you for fighting against it with reason, truth and humor.

We need battalions of such educators in our schools to teach the truth of American exceptionalism.

Whatever you think of him, these facts are undeniable; the man behind American Power Blog is a tireless defender of freedom, of the virtues of liberty and a true American patriot. Which is why I’ve chosen American Power as the Robot’s latest Featured Blog.

Like your humble robot, Prof. Douglas is a music lover as well and possesses a diverse taste that spans the spectrum from punk rock to rap and hip-hop to pop and classic rock. I’ve found several new bands from visits to American Power and been reminded of some I’d forgotten.

I must also admit to sharing his affinity for Gods most favored creatures. We need a break from the punditry every now and then and the lovely ladies featured on his site rival those to be found anywhere, be it here on this site, or the glitzy runways of New York.

Be sure to bookmark and blogroll American Power.

Jeez, the guy is everywhere! Maybe that’s why he is fortunate enough to hang out with like minded freedom fighters like Pamela Geller.

Whatever it is you’re doing, Sir. Keep on keepin’ on. You’ve definitely got an admirer in this Texas robot.

Cheers!

Be sure to drop by and wish a hearty Happy Happy to my good friend Steve of Motor City Times, who is celebrating his second blog anniversary!

To commemorate this auspicious occasion, we here at the Robotic Institute for the Advancement of All Things Bodacious have searched high and low for the proper gift and it comes to mind that a little Rule 5 might be in order.

Happy Blog Day my friend.

Also, don’t forget to check out ToM’s Sunday Rule 5 Roundup.
