Why I Don't Use Google Shopping

Google Shopping, like eBay, has gone down the PC road of removing gun-related merchandise from the shopping experience.  Actually, Google Shopping's new rules for product placement make eBay look like a sporting goods warehouse.  A lot of gun-related items are still available on eBay.

Ever since Google revised its privacy policy earlier this year, I refuse to use them as a search engine and have added their shopping service to my "do not use list."

For a quick and easy example of why I will not use Google Shopping, try the following.

1)  Go to;
2)  Click on the tab "More", then click on "Shopping";
3)  Type "Ammunition" in the search box and hit "Enter";
4)  See result;
5)  Next, type "gay sex toys" in the search box and hit "Enter".
6)  Case closed.

Yahoo Search and Yahoo Shopping seem to be a lot more gun-neutral, in my opinion.

EyeWitless News: 65% Believe Obama Better Able to Handle Alien Invasion

Once again, the lamestream media have found yet another way to prop up their savior, Obama.

A survey found that 65% of Americans believe that Obama would "be better suited to handle a theoretical alien invasion than Romney".  Story here.

I am surprised that the vote was not 100%.  I personally believe that Obama would be better at dealing with aliens because he is one.  Well, an illegal alien, but still an alien.

Teacher Tells the Truth: Kids, You're Not Special

About damn time!  Although I never thought this would happen in Massachusetts.

Teacher David McCullough, Jr. told a high school graduating class that they are not.......special.  They are not.......exceptional.  That they have been coddled and cajoled and counseled and encouraged by adults, and that these young adults will need to realize that nobody else cares how special they think they are.

Wow!  This is a long overdue message to the young people of this country, who are largely a bunch of self-absorbed brats. 


When I graduated from high school over twenty-five years ago, I was under no illusion that I was remarkable in any way, and was quite nervous about the future because I knew that I would be facing competition out in the real world.  (I actually went straight to college, but college was different in 1986.  We were actually expected to learn and demonstrate the level of our learning).  My high school friends and I ventured out on our own, some of us told by parents that we were welcome to visit our old home but not to camp out there.

I look at the young adults I see today and I think to myself, "These punks will never survive the Zombie Apocalypse or any other major change to civilization."  Many have no skills aside from being able to access their Facebook or Myspace account, send texts, or rapidly tap their thumbs on the controller of the latest video game system.

I have personally known 18 to 26 year old young persons who were openly disrespectful of their parents and grandparents, yet could not consistently support themselves and expected their parents and grandparents to provide for them.  These young persons could not hold even the most basic, fast-food, minimum-wage job for more than a few months without major problems, could not consistently maintain a residence, and could not maintain an automobile or insurance.  Yet they were always able to "party", buy alcoholic and "energy" drinks, cigarettes, drugs, and the latest cell phone.  They just can't afford to feed themselves, buy clothes or wash them, or figure out how to get back to their own home at the end of the day.

Either I am joining the ranks of the old people I used to complain about in my youth, or the youth of today are the opposite of what their parents, teachers, and other adults are telling them:  special and worthy of excess insulation from the realities of the world.  At 44, I don't think I am that old.  And I didn't just start noticing how today's youth behaves.

Oh, I could go on and on about how today's young people have no idea what hardship and responsibility are (I actually haven't experienced real hardship myself, although I prepare for it), but I think I'll stop here.  Go read the article about David McCullough, Jr.'s speech to his 2012 high school graduating class.  If you are over 30, you'll be glad you did.

Little Johnny Explains Obamarketing

The kids filed into class Monday morning. They were all very excited.
Their weekend assignment was to sell something, then give a talk on salesmanship.
Little Sally led off. "I sold Girl Scout cookies and I made $30" she said proudly, "My sales approach was to appeal to the customer's civil spirit and I credit that approach for my obvious success."
"Very good", said the teacher.
Little Debbie was next. "I sold magazines" she said, "I made $45 and I explained to everyone that magazines would keep them up on current events."
"Very good, Debbie", said the teacher.
Eventually, it was Little Johnny's turn. The teacher held her breath. Little Johnny walked to the front of the classroom and dumped a box full of cash on the teacher's desk. "$2,467", he said.
"$2,467!" cried the teacher, "What in the world were you selling?"
Toothbrushes", said Little Johnny. "Toothbrushes", echoed the teacher, "How could you possibly sell enough tooth brushes to make that much money?"
"I found the busiest corner in town", said Little Johnny, "I set up a Dip & Chip stand and I gave everybody who walked by a free sample."
They all said the same thing, "Hey, this tastes like dog poop!" Then I would say, "It is dog poop. Wanna buy a toothbrush? I used the President Obama method of giving you some crap, dressing it up so it looks good, telling you it's free and then making you pay to get the bad taste out of your mouth."
Little Johnny got five stars for his assignment. Bless his heart.

Manchurian President Ignores D-Day Anniversary....for 3rd year in a row.

Foreign-born, America-hating, military-despising President Barack Hussein Obama II once again (as he did in 2010 and 2011) has no plans for the 68th anniversary of D-Day.  He did commemorate the 65th anniversary in 2009, but I believe he probably just read what appeared on his TelePrompter and had no idea where he was or why he was there.

Story here.
