Everybody’s an Oather

Balloon graphics were easier.Good golly, this is picking up steam. State Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R-Troglodyte) is pissed about veterans touring Pennsylvania to spread inconvenient truths:

“As a veteran, I believe that any veteran lending their name, to promote the leftist propaganda of global warming and climate change, in an effort to control more of the wealth created in our economy, through cap and tax type policies, all in the name of national security, is a traitor to the oath he or she took to defend the Constitution of our great nation!” Mr. Metcalfe’s email reads. “Remember Benedict Arnold before giving credibility to a veteran who uses their service as a means to promote a leftist agenda. Drill Baby Drill!!!”

We might remind the exclamation-hoarding Mr. Metcalfe that George W. Bush took a similar oath — twice — yet it’s only lefties who seem to care about calling him on it, and even the Socialist-in-Chief is content to let sleeping tyrants lie.

Pennsylvania state lawmaker: Veterans who support climate change legislation are ‘traitors.’ [Think Progress]

Because if there is one thing that the government train military men for, it’s climatology and not that Art of War drivel.

Pollution is patriotic! By this logic, it’s time to change the atmosphere to one of Titan through mass Teabagger farting and dumping Rush Limbaugh’s fat ass into the Atlantic.

Oooh this is good. Howz ’bout new 12′ x 12′ posters of these quotes for every VFW hall?

TJ/ First blow just hit…they are moving Key Art to TVA for preschool. Something will change for me at this point for sure…just not sure what.

Quick, somebody tell him about Winter Soldier, preferably while the press is watching. I want to watch his head asplode in slow motion.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: Sorry to hear, I don’t understand it, but it sounds like change, and uncertainty.

next week is my non-profit associations annual trustee meeting which sets the budget and agenda for the coming year.

My job, at best, is like a fireman, I sit and wait, and for a few weeks each year, contribute highly valuable efforts, and the rest of the time, I rot in boredom. Every year, even when times are good, I worry. Thus year, the members of the association are facing economic devastation, and I cannot help but think that they look at the association and say “we have cut our staffs 20%, what about you guys.” I worry, whether with need or not, I have no idea, because for 7 years I have worked in a job where I have no supervision and no oversight and no feedback, true thing. I never have to actually do anything, but I also never know if I am doing what is expected.

I am pretty much the “creative” end of our political-legal activities, I am expected to just know whats going on, whats coming up, and what to do, and I am asked to bring this into play a couple of times a year.

Strange fucking gig.

Didn’t the Pentagon’s long-range planning office issue a report some three or five years ago – quickly suppressed – that the greatest threat facing the nation was the coming unrest caused by global warming? I think they did.

@Tommmcatt is hunkered down in the trenches: Is that to do with fundamental design/look?
