Merry Christmas

a Christmas carol written by a Jesuit missionary among the Huron and Wendat Indians at sainte marie in the 1640's.  it embraces our Christian, hunting and for me, Canadian heritage.

it's called mythomania

  i only stretched the truth this much, and it was for your own good.

Compulsive lying, also called Mythomania, is a rather common symptom of mental illness. This disorder presents an acute challenge by its very nature because health care professionals cannot always tell if the patient is telling the truth with regard to symptoms. Compulsive or pathological liars are often so convincing that they consistently beat polygraph tests and convince themselves that their lies are the truth.

 The Difference Between Habitual Lying and Mythomania

It is hard to separate these two cases, because some people engage in “white” lies to avoid hurting other’s feelings. The pathological liar, by contrast, cannot help lying, even when the lie cause’s harm. It is this aspect of Mythomania that distinguishes it as a form of illness, rather than a habit. Those who lie regularly and without compunction to achieve desired results may need to consider some form of therapy to change these habits.

there ya go kids, now you know what's wrong with him, and this is apparently caused by,  'The complex issues involved include self esteem, feelings of inadequacy, early life issues including physical or verbal abuse, drug and alcohol addiction and more.'

i took the top two paragraphs as well as the causation statement from the Helping Psychology site, it was authored by Marc Pickren and appeared in Intro to Psychology.

we have heard this for years about this guy,  maybe through static and in the background, but it was there.  we tuned it out or only glanced at it in passing, but it was there, under our noses, hiding in the open.  how we handle it is up to us.

sorta lends credence to the theories about his birth certificate and draft registration card now don't it?

Veterans Day 2013

this veterans day will be a bitter sweet day off for me.  normally i would work, but the wife and i get such little time together these days i decided to take it off.  the last year has seen the loss of 2 men who were very dear to me, my dad, and my uncle.

dad is at the top, as shown in his NAVY uniform during the Korean War.  the next picture is my uncle, probably in the  "tan and pinks" of the ARMY during WW2.  they weren't "great men" as defined by thomas carlyle, but they were  wonderful to me, and their families. 

dad was a bit acerbic at times, but i truly grew to appreciate him after i left home and joined the ARMY myself.  until you are out on your own, working to put a roof over other's heads and pay bills, worrying about kids health and grades, i don't think a man can honestly understand the pressure of being a dad.  the sunday mornings when he would return home after delivering papers most of the night, and wake me up to go fishing meant so much to me.  i think i must have been quite a bemusement to dad as he was SUCH a liberal, and i turned out to be SO conservative, despite his best efforts.  i really miss calling and heckling him over the the many screw ups of his buddies clinton, reid and pelosi, teddy swim meet, and the annointed one.  dad claimed i couldn't get under his skin, but he sure did get good at hanging up on me when i called to razz him about the great job the dems were doing.

my uncle was huge when i was a kid, with a deep gruff voice and cigars who was sorta scary.  outward appearance aside, he was one of the kindest, gentlest men i have ever known.  he grew up tough working with my grandfather on rental properties the family owned and collecting money from over due renters.  he was almost stabbed once doing this.  before and after the war he worked for one of the bell's stringing telephone lines, and based on that experience he rose to the rank of master sergeant in the ARMY's signal corps.  i could always stop by and see and see him and my aunt,  an ARMY nurse during the war, when i was a kid and get a soda and sandwich if i was out running around.  as i no longer live where i grew up,i was so glad i took the time out of a busy schedule to stop and visit with my uncle after dad's funeral, as he passed just 6 months later.

so today as the wife and i get a little us time, we will be remembering these 2 sons of the republic, and their service. we miss you everyday.

vindictive the lesser

so today we get the news that family members of the military, killed in combat in asscrackistan, will not receive a $100,000 dollar pay out due to the government shutdown.  shame on you mr. obama.

relatives of 25-year-old 1st Lt. Jennifer M. Moreno; 24-year-old Pfc. Cody J. Patterson; 24-year-old Special Agent Joseph M. Peters; 25-year-old Sgt. Patrick C. Hawkins; and 19-year-old Lance Cpl. Jeremiah M. Collins, Jr. would have otherwise received the payment within three days of the death.

so in addition to trying to close the WWII memorial, yosemite park, the lincoln and jefferson memorials and countless others, mr. obama is now punishing families who have had their world literally destroyed.

where is president EXECUTIVE ORDER when hurting AMERICAN'S need real leadership?

thankfully, FISHER HOUSE has shown that leadership which the vacationer in chief lacks, and will cover those payouts.  this is who many of you voted for AMERICA, your chickens have come home to roost.

joe mccarthy's grandson

“This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it. Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or their revolutionary right to dismember or overthrow it.”
- Abraham Lincoln, First Inaugural

unless of course you are a conservative, in which case this proctologist  and his minions pay you a visit.
who is really surprised to hear that the most open administration ever would employ such tactics?

breaking news...second suspect in custody from marathon bombing

massachusetts and federal authorities have taken the younger tsarnaev brother into custody after a brief shoot out and stand off with police in watertown, massachusetts at about 8:45 p.m. local time.

president obama, speaking from the 19th hole of an undisclosed golf course, said that it was a shameful day when one stops to consider that the police were actually able to shoot back at the non tea party, generally misunderstood boys from chechnya.  the president further stated that he believed the police acted stupidly, in particular the cambridge police department, and noted  that there is a long history in this country of chechen terrorists being shot, specifically in the greater boston area.

the president would not rule out water boarding  in the questioning of the officers involved in the capture and killing of the devout, peaceful, muslim college students, who he noted friends described as bright and quiet.
when asked to expound on the potential reversal of his disdain for torture, the president stated that only applied to enemy combatants, and not AMERICAN citizens who "defend" the republic.  the president clarified his position by stating it was evolving.  the president also was quick to admonish  his subjects to not rush to judgement, pointing out how bill ayers, a guy he sorta knows from the neighborhood, was wrongly accused of a late 60's and early 70's bombing campaign against the u.s. government.   the president pointed out how investigators used illegal tactics in collecting evidence against ayers, which caused charges agianst him to be dropped.

 the fbi, when asked about the 2011 questioning of the now dead older tsarnaev , if they could have missed anything during that interview which might have prevented the marathon bombing,  responded, that they never miss anything in the numerous movies and television shows about their organization, always getting their man, with the exception of nadel hussein at ft. hood and richard jewell. who they wrongly fingered as the atlanta olympics bomber.

in related news,  it is reported that u.s. attorney general eric holder will hold an 11 p.m. eastern time press conference to announce his resignation and return to private practice at covington & burling, his former law firm.  covington & burling is well known for its defense of 18 terror suspects held by the u.s. government at guantanamo bay,  cuba.  it is believed that holder will be heading up the tsarnaev defense team.

reading and writing and arithmetic

of course teachers have nothing but little johnnies best interest at heart, as evidenced by this story out of kansas.

— Gov. Sam Brownback’s proposal to improve fourth-grade reading by holding back third-graders who can’t read at grade-level met opposition from school district officials from Kansas City, Kan., and Topeka on Monday.

Wichita officials, meanwhile, say the money Brownback has proposed spending to improve fourth-grade reading levels would be better spent on a statewide training program that better equips teachers.

“Retention is quite an expensive strategy,” said Diane Gjerstad, a lobbyist for the Wichita school district.

so is passing kids along that can't fucking read or write.  remember this the next time your local teachers union and democrat politicians are begging for your support and are threatening to strike.
