Solidarity U.S.A.

Russian Prime Minister Vladamir Putin has said the US should take a lesson from the pages of Russian history and not exercise “excessive intervention in economic activity and blind faith in the state’s omnipotence”. “In the 20th century, the Soviet Union made the state’s role absolute,” Putin said during a speech at the opening ceremony of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “In the long run, this made the Soviet economy totally uncompetitive. This lesson cost us dearly. I am sure nobody wants to see it repeated.”
It is not surprising that Putin would recognize the poison of Obama's system of liberal fascism before Americans would even realize that it exists.

I just had a similar experience with my colleague who grew up in communist Poland. My mere mention of the mortgage deadbeat giveaway started him on a rant and led to deep reflection of his parents' struggle under that evil system and his escape to become an American. Although he grew up relatively privileged as the son of the manager of a huge factory and an M.D., the move to the West became his destiny. Personal, financial and religious freedom have made him love his adopted country.

When my friend mentioned the Solidarity buttons worn is Poland, I saw the parallel to the emerging financial Tea Party ignited by Rick Santilli. Wikipedia describes the Polish Solidarity Movement as "a broad anti-communist social movement." I am eager to become part of that movement.

We are Number One!

If you're not a Wisconsin native, you've probably never heard of it.

But the city of Pewaukee, Wis., a small Milwaukee suburb overlooking a picturesque sailing and fishing lake of the same name, has award-winning schools, low crime, natural beauty, and homes for every budget. It topped the list of's 2009 rankings of the "Best Affordable Suburbs." Pewaukee was selected for Wisconsin in our state-by-state rankings, and scored No. 1 on our nationwide list.

The city of Pewaukee should not be confused with the village of Pewaukee, which the city surrounds. (Pewaukee village, which has a beach on the eastern tip of the lake and serves as the downtown for the area, fell just short of Pewaukee city in our scoring for Wisconsin.)

Business Week's 2009 top rated affordable suburb in the United States is Pewaukee, my hometown.

Your awe is understandable. But if we are so great, why do the geniuses in city hall want to make Pewaukee more like our inferior neighbors, such as Brookfield and New Berlin?

The housing crisis in terms even a Harvard grad can understand

And in terms that Jeff Foxworthy might understand.
If you can't make the mortgage payment on your house, you just may be trailer park trash.

As seen at NEI Nuclear Notes.

Obviously missing from the presentation is the rate of increase of debt under a Democratic administration.

Blackwater name change - 2 tips

First, I have learned from a very good source that in an attempt to soften their image, Blackwater Worldwide will become Pink Kitty Security.

Second, order your Blackwater logo gear now. It won't be available much longer.

Wiki response

Sadly, those dicks at (AT&T Internet Services out of Richardson, TX) refuse to share any credit for the bacon weave wrapped fattie and have deleted the citation in Wikipedia of your humble blogger being first. It has since been changed back. This must be a friend of those maggot gaggers, Jason and Aaron.

Those pathetic little bastards. Payback is coming.

Hillary is Friday the 13th's big winner

No vote means no blame. When Obama's stimulus bill completely craters the economy, Hillary can rightly become her party's loyal opposition. She will become THE voice of moderation in the Democratic Party and one of the few politicians whose views will be heard.

She also has the advantage of being pushed aside by other Obama's foreign policy insiders, so she can be clean of his blunders overseas, as well.

Hillary 2012 will be awesome. For the first time, she will have an Obama record to criticize and his failures will be known and well documented.

A headline you'll never read in your daily paper

That's not funny. He is The One.

Obama jokes at Power & Control. They are pretty good. A sample.

Headless Blogger says, "Check them out."

Headless gets Wiki-fied

All that smack is paying off as Headless Blogger rides the Bacon Explosion's fame to further exposure. There is already a Wikipedia entry for the Bacon Explosion and the Headless Blogger is rightfully credited with being the first to achieve weaved-bacon perfection. There is even an agate type link to this blog in the references.

It's like I always say - If you can't be the most popular, at least you can be the first and the best.

History and origin

Jason Day and Aaron Chronister posted the dish in December 2008 on their "BBQ Addicts" blog.[3] It quickly became an internet phenomenon, generating more than 500,000 hits and 16,000 links to the blog, and was even included on political blogs because "Republicans like meat."[4][1][2] There are fan clubs and follow-up videos of various attempts to create the dish.[2]

The inventors are experienced barbecue competition participants from Kansas City, and compete in cook-offs as the Burnt Finger BBQ team.[2] According to the Telegraph, "They came up with the delicacy after being challenged on Twitter to create the ultimate bacon recipe."[2] They christened their innovation the "Bacon Explosion: The BBQ Sausage Recipe of all Recipes."[2]

The Bacon Explosion is similar to a number of previously published recipes, and Day and Chronister do not claim to have invented the concept.[1] Earlier in December 2009 (sic), Headless Blogger posted a recipe for the "Ultimate Fattie, which is comprised of sausage, chili, pepperoni, and muenster cheese rolled into a bacon lattice.[5] This concoction was inspired by a bacon and cheese roll (again, lattice-based) posted by a user on the Foodroll blog.[5][6]

A salary cap I can endorse

From Mark Steyn.

Commissar Frank says we need to take the glorious people's revolution to the next stage:

Congress will consider legislation to extend some of the curbs on executive pay that now apply only to those banks receiving federal assistance, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Barney Frank said.

“There’s deeply rooted anger on the part of the average American,” the Massachusetts Democrat said at a Washington news conference today.

He said the compensation restrictions would apply to all financial institutions and might be extended to include all U.S. companies.

Let's take the next logical step. Cap total compensation for any individual working for a corporation, foundation, educational institution, and other entity receiving government payments. This will have the positive effect of reducing the amount of government spending needed to support these institutions. And it can take some of the incentive out of increased federal spending

But don't stop there. Since lobbyists are an integral part of the government process, restrict their pay, too. They act as agents in this governmental process, cap their reward.

Did I mention that secession is becoming inevitable?

The day the nation died

Bye bye America ...

During the same week that the fiftieth anniversary of the day the music died was commemorated, we may have witnessed the day America died.

My blog has been quiet lately. Between the inevitability of the porkulus bill, uncertainty over what it will mean, and a case of blogger's block, I haven't had much to say. But Friday's passing of the Senate's splendidly selfish spending bill is something this nation cannot afford and the consequences terrify me. At a time when our nation is increasingly restrained in what it can produce, we have mortgaged our future on a package of short term fixes and throwaway spending. When it is all spent, we will look back at a lot of nothing. Nothing but a pile of political paybacks to promote the next election. This cannot go on.

How many times can you bankrupt a country? With the nation's means of production crippled or banned by Washington, and incentives to take risks reduced, there is little chance of a full economic recovery. I am frozen with fear and uncertainty with my personal investments. I see no way up and little hope of keeping ahead of the certain inflation this wasteful spending will produce.

What is left to spend? How can Obama, Reid and Pelosi create their environmentally benign socialist utopia when we are already over leveraged? The spendathon for socialized healthcare, and eventual taxing of our exhalations could be more than any civilization can support. Secession may become inevitable. But that's another blog post.

Black Friday.

The nothing story of the decade

Michael Phelps demonstrating that he'll be qualified to be President in 24 years.

Thirty years of constant marijuana use will have you walking into windows and saying thing like ...
No, it — it — it's like — Inspector Gadget, you know? We — the — if you touch it, it might blow up.
We just inaugurated the Pothead-in-Chief, can we get over Phelps taking a bong hit?

The Bacon Explosion is a 20 megaton culinary atrocity

I figure that if you can't beat them, at least try their recipe. So for Super Bowl Sunday I decided to try the Bacon Explosion recipe myself.

I meticulously followed the online instructions. However, I will not reveal the identity of the widely used competition rub and sauce that I used. I don't want a defamation suit from associating those fine products with the monstrosity that results from this recipe.

What? Someone dares to criticize the renowned Bacon Explosion? Yup, get over the hype and consider what's in it.

First the choice of ingredients: Italian sausage, smoked bacon, barbecue sauce & rub, enhanced with the flavor of hickory smoke. On what planet are those combined into a recipe? Nowhere in Italian cooking will you find American bacon and Italian sausage combined, or God forbid hickory smoke applied to the sausage. That is not by accident.

The barbecue sauce does work well with the smoky bacon, but it has a conflicting flavor profile with the Italian sausage. Maybe kielbasa or andouille would work, but Italian sausage in this combination is a gross culinary mistake. The salt in the barbecue rub that I applied also made the bacon overwhelmingly salty.

The next problem with the recipe is the concept of putting "crispy" bacon in the middle of sausage and covering it with barbecue sauce. Soaking "crispy" bacon in liquid and then stewing it in rendered pork fat for 2-1/2 hours results in mushy bacon. That is an abuse of bacon in my opinion.

But more significantly, the bacon in the weave does not completely cook. If you look closely at the picture on the left, all of the bacon beneath the outermost weave is uncooked. This layer of raw bacon is absolutely disgusting. That is an advantage of the Redneck Sushi technique of precooking the bacon weave - all of your bacon is cooked.

Overall the Bacon Explosion is a culinary atrocity. The flavor combination and bacon texture are awful. Aaron and Jason are master marketers and came up with a first class way to cash in on the current bacon craze. But their recipe sucks.

The Bacon Explosion is a Crime Against Humanity.
I hereby renounce any previous claims or innuendo that the BBQ Addicts copied my Redneck Sushi recipe in creating the Bacon Explosion. I would not want that stain on my culinary reputation. The blame belongs solely with Aaron and Jason.
