This Bud’s for you!!!!

These horses are historical as they are beautiful and amazing. More than 300 years ago, this imposing breed was first developed for farm work in the region of Clydesdale, Scotland.

They are most easily recognized for their substantial feather — the long hairs of the lower leg that cover the hooves.

Despite an unusual appearance, they are capable of pulling a 1-ton load at 5 MPH. WHOA!

The Clydesdales made their very first appearance on April 7, 1933. A gift from August A. Busch, Jr. and Adolphus Busch to their father to celebrate the repeal of Prohibition, the presentation of the original two six-horse hitches of breathtaking Clydesdales moved father, sons, and drivers to tears. The phrase “crying in your beer” was officially coined shortly after that.

They heralded a new era of prosperity for Anheuser-Busch, and a weary nation’s return to optimism. From their first appearance in 1933 to their enduring presence on the American landscape, the Clydesdales are more than the symbol of Budweiser beer; they are the living embodiment of America’s great industrial spirit.

Budweiser Clydesdales are famous all over the world for their exquisite beauty and majestic aura. These durable and beautiful gentle giants are pleasant to look at, and as it turns out, they are kind of funny as well. The video is an adorable Budweiser commercial featuring a group of Clydesdales having some fun in the snow.

One of the things that come to mind when it starts snowing is a snowball fight. I was in hysterics when these adorable horses began doing just that. The brewing company Anheuser-Busch says it owns around 250 Clydesdales. According to them, “the Clydesdales continue to be an enduring symbol of the brewer’s heritage, tradition, and commitment to quality”.

 

This is a tribute to a man who DID make a difference…..

On his deathbed they asked him where he wanted to be buried. Bob Hope replied: “Surprise me.”

I had forgotten that he lived to be 100, and also didn’t realize it has been over 15 years since he died.

For those of you too young to remember Bob Hope, ask your grandparents and thanks for the memories.

 

 

I HOPE THIS WILL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE AND IN YOUR HEART.

 

ON TURNING 70 – “I still chase women, but only downhill.”

ON TURNING 80 – “That’s the time of your life when even your birthday suit needs pressing.”

ON TURNING 90 – “You know you are getting old when the candles cost more than the cake.”

ON TURNING 100 – ” I don’t feel old. In fact, I don’t feel anything until noon. Then it’s time for my nap.”

ON GIVING UP HIS EARLY CAREER (BOXING) – “I ruined my hands in the ring. The referee kept stepping on them.”

ON GOLF – “Golf is my profession. Show business is just to pay the green fees.”

ON PRESIDENTS – “I have performed for 12 presidents but entertained only six.”

ON WHY HE CHOOSE SHOWBIZ FOR HIS CAREER – “When I was born, the doctor said to my mother, congratulations, you have an eight-pound ham.”

ON RECEIVING THE CONGRESSIONAL GOLD MEDAL – “I feel very humble, but I think I have the strength of character to fight it.”

ON HIS FAMILY’S EARLY POVERTY – “Four of us slept in the one bed. When it got cold, mother threw on another brother.”

ON HIS SIX BROTHERS – “That’s how I learned to dance. Waiting for the bathroom.”

ON HIS EARLY FAILURES – “I would not have had anything to eat if it wasn’t for the stuff the audience threw at me.”

ON GOING TO HEAVEN – “I have done benefits for ALL religions. I would hate to blow the hereafter on a technicality.”

Dear Lord –
Please give me a sense of humor,
give me the grace to see the jokes,
to get some humor out of life,
and pass it on to other folks.

To the person receiving this, please have the grace to pass it on to others.

Learn from yesterday, live for today, keep one hand on your wallet and don’t worry about tomorrow.

He Fights……

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.  They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”  Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.  We tried statesmanship.  Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?  We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.  I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.  I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.  Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s.   To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.  It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war.  While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end.  Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors.  Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.  Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.   Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man.  He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch.  In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank.  But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum, then Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting.  And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”  That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.

That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis.   It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do.

First, instead of going after “the fake media” – and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri – Trump isolated CNN.  He made it personal.  Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”

Everyone gets that it’s not just CNN – in fact, in a world where Al Sharpton and Rachel Maddow, Paul Krugman and Nicholas Kristof are people of influence and whose “reporting” is in no way significantly different than CNN’s – CNN is just a piker.

Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position.  With Trump’s ability to go around them, they cannot simply stand pat.  They need to respond.  This leaves them with only two choices.

They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery.

The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.  It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.

Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s, church.

Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

This makes “going high” a non-starter for CNN.  This leaves them no other option but to ratchet up the fake news, conjuring up the next “nothing burger” and devoting 24 hours a day to hysterical rants about how it’s “worse than Nixon.”

This, obviously, is what CNN has chosen to do.  The problem is that, as they become more and more hysterical, they become more and more obvious.  Each new effort at even faker news than before and faker “outrage” only makes that much more clear to any objective observer that Trump is and always has been right about the fake news media.

And, by causing their hysteria, Trump has forced them into numerous, highly embarrassing and discrediting mistakes.   Thus, in their desperation, they have lowered their standards even further and run with articles so clearly fake that, even with the liberal (lower case “l”) libel laws protecting the media, they’ve had to wholly retract and erase their stories repeatedly.

Their flailing at Trump has even seen them cross the line into criminality, with CNN using their vast corporate fortune to hunt down a private citizen for having made fun of them in an Internet meme.  This threat to “dox” – release of personal information to encourage co-ideologists to visit violence upon him and his family — a political satirist was chilling in that it clearly wasn’t meant just for him.  If it were, there would have been no reason for CNN to have made their “deal” with him public.

Instead, CNN – playing by “Chicago Rules” – was sending a message to any and all: dissent will not be tolerated.

This heavy-handed and hysterical response to a joke on the Internet has backfired on CNN, giving rise to only more righteous ridicule.

So, to my friends on the Left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”?  Of course I do.   These aren’t those times.  This is war.  And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting  without opposition for the past 50 years.

So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times.  I don’t care.  I can’t spare this man.  He fights.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT

From: Hank Ashmore

The Deplorable Infidel

 

 

MUSLIM RELIGION IS NOT A RELIGION AT ALL BUT RATHER A PHILOSOPHY OF HATE!

In the USA, most of us were raised to say grace, schooled to say the Pledge of Allegiance every day in school, repeat “The Lord’s Prayer”. And to do no harm to persons or property and to respect our elders, neighbors and everyone. Learn to obey “The Ten Commandments”!! And the laws of our land…

Nowhere in the Koran does it teach these principles! Nowhere are acts of kindness taught! In depth it is a chronicle of hatred, given rights of torture, and death! Death to everyone that disbelieves in Islam! “Death to all Infidels” !!! So that sweet little lady in Walmart all wrapped up, with head coverings, is bound to their teachings… Does this mean she will slit your throat given the opportunity? In order for her to remain true to her faith… Yes! One day, the more than 11 million Muslims living in the USA will unite, whether by infiltration of our government or a civil war, it will happen! Muslims have already taken over large portions of several European cities. BTW go to Google to find in the USA where the Muslim population have taken over parts of large cities.

You decide how you want your grandchildren to live!!!

MUSLIMS MY ASS…

Have you ever seen a Muslim hospital?

Have you heard a Muslim orchestra?

Have you ever seen a Muslim band march in a parade?

Have you witnessed a Muslim charity?

Have you ever shaken hands with a Muslim Girl Scout?

Have you seen a Muslim Candy Striper?

The answer is no, you have not. Have you asked yourself WHY?

Barack Obama, during his Cairo speech, said: “I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America’s history.”

Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims (were any Muslims on the ships?) first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

AN OPINION FROM THE DEPLORABLE INDIFEL

NBC News contributor Frank Figliuzzi said Tuesday that President Trump’s decision to fly American flags at half-staff until August 8, in response to the El Paso and Dayton shootings, could be seen by white supremacists as a nod to Adolf Hitler. Folks, you just can’t make this s**t up.
