All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.



Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!

This has got to be the best idea to ever come out of California.  Seriously.  I've often said that if anything good was ever produced in California, I'd say something.  Well I'm saying this is an idea whose time has come.

Firing Squad Or Hanging? AG Candidate Wants Death Penalty For Corrupt Lawmakers
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) – A Republican candidate for California attorney general said Friday that state lawmakers who are found guilty of crimes that endanger the lives of others should face the death penalty. 
What a great idea.  Let's expand it to:
  • Lawmakers that accept money from lobbyists
  • Bureaucrats that cause harm to others
  • Bureaucrats that abuse their position  
  • Cops that abuse their badge
Imagine if elected officials had to obey the same laws the rest of us do.  Imagine if they were held accountable for the harm caused by their agenda's.  Imagine having men of integrity in office instead of the crowd we have now.  Imagine if this was federal law.

In other news, the US navy has way too much money.

Navy warship en route to sick toddler on sailboat
SAN DIEGO (AP) -- A U.S. Navy warship was headed Saturday to rescue a 1-year-old girl who fell ill on a crippled sailboat that was attempting to circle the world.
Slicing the Pacific at 25 knots, the USS Vandegrift was expected to reach the Rebel Heart in the late evening or early Sunday, a Navy spokeswoman said.
I'm sorry your kid is sick.  If you have enough money to own your own saltwater sailing yacht AND take off enough time to circumnavigate the globe, you have enough money to provide for emergency health care.  The US tax payer is not your personal medical transportation service.  What kind of parents take their two-year old on a primitive sea voyage?  I'd love to get a check from the government equal to the amount of money we spent to help these rich folks out.

  2. Good thing we didn't have "every resource available" off in the Indian Ocean looking for a lost airplane. Good thing president Obama is a liar. Good thing we bought and maintained a navy that is twice as large as we need it so we have extra ships for stuff like this.

    Seems like the Mexican Navy would be a tad closer.

    Since they think it is a case of salmonella, what kind of people don't take more care with their food for a voyage like this?

    If the vessel was truly disabled like I have read, I can see why they called for help.
