Manny M. Dorlors´





Allow me to introduce to you my fictitious friend Manny M. Dorlors´.  Pronounce Dorlors´ with a Spanish inflection like...Dor--lors´


I like to think the M stands for More.


Manny today is a rather clean-cut intelligent young man who came to this country with his family legally when he was still a boy.  Coming from Cuba they were almost broke. To compound the problem no one in the family could speak a word of English but over time they learned how. To be fair Manny and his little sister quickly learned to speak English fluently and his Mom and Dad did well enough to get by. Settling in Miami they avoided culture shock and were surprised to discover every time they turned the lights on they actually worked. 


Well as time went by, and Manny graduated from high school, his father a taxi driver, could not afford to send him to college. Manny instead began looking for work. He was a hard worker but could only find dead end jobs.  Nevertheless, Manny strived to get ahead and at his new job he always volunteered to work overtime as a forklift operator at the J and C warehouse.

I think it was around 1999 when Manny had saved enough money to buy himself a laptop computer. When he brought it home he couldn't even figure out how to turn it on. However, over a very short period of time he became infatuated with it. Soon he understood with great clarity computer technology. It wasn't long before he could take a computer apart and put it back together almost blindfolded.

 Manny began to realize the potential of earning money with his newly aquired skills. In the computer magazine he subscribed to they sang the praises and income potential of website development. He decided to investigate. 


 That Manny was something...when he saw an opportunity look out Loretta. Everyday, and I mean everyday, Manny taught himself, and became immersed, in website development. He would stay up all night, go to work, come home, and only go to sleep every other night. He did this for two years only sleeping soundly on weekends. It wasn't long before he filed for two patents. Several companies offered him a tidy sum for the patent rights. Although tempted, he turned them down. A better outcome was just a short hop away. Why sell the patent rights when he could develop it himself he thought? What he did may have been a gamble but it also quenched the urge to take care of his family.


Six and a half years after Manny was first offered $450,000 by Sincom Systems he had created MMD Web Developers MMD for short. Today the privately owned company is worth over 165 million and employs 26 people and Manny is considering going public with a IPO.


To his credit he took care of his Mom and Dad and  little sister. They lived the life never dreamed of in Cuba. But Manny also indulged in living large. He takes home an annual salary of $10 million but spends over $12 million. Although he has never married he has 4 homes (and throws lavish parties), six cars, an 85 foot custom Hatteras, and a Cessna Citation. His credit cards are maxed out. The IRS is breathing down his neck for some serious back taxes. Trans Union, Equifax, and Experian have all downgraded his A-1 credit rating of 809 to 362.


What is Manny's problem?


A.   Simple... he needs more revenue.


B.   He spends to much.




 The correct answer is A according to Obama and the rest of the Democratic Party.

An absolute pathological liar





Reminder America - Obama Didn't Over Promise.






Over promised!!!



This is how it started, and why he came to be ridiculed as the Messiah. He could do all this with a wave of the hand as the assholes behind him are cheering.


...this was the moment when we began to provide care for the sick and good jobs to the jobless; this was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal... 


 Surely if he could  bring all this about, shutting off the BP oil spill would have been a minor miracle for him which he failed to perform. 

You are witnessing living proof of what happens when no challenge is ever presented by the MSM. He can say anything, do anything, with impunity. If it wasn't for the blogosphere no one would get the truth.




Update:


This was edited out of the 60 minutes interview above. The only reason I can think of is to conceal his delusions of grandeur.


Sometimes... even I am astonished.


"I've gotten more done then any president except Lincoln, FDR, and LBJ."


In other words he is better than George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, JFK, and Ronald Reagan. When in reality no modern day president has been worse. He makes Carter look almost Reaganesque.

And so it goes...My view on the Iowa debate and the final countdown



First I thought all the candidates did pretty well and personal attacks were kept to a minimum.

I am going to try to put them in order of how they stack up. The candidate with the least chance of winning given the higher number or the first to drop out if you will.



Number 7
Jon Huntsman

Seems like a nice guy but kind of shallow, afraid to jump in with both feet. I question if his heart is really in it for the long haul.  Has tons of money probably helped by his father who is a billionaire. Comes across as a little to plain vanilla and is someone who would be hard to rally around. When he kicked off his campaign it had all the flare of opening a bottle of flat ginger-ale.


Number 6
Michelle Bachmann

Very attractive candidate in more ways then one. Teaparty favorite. Yet sometimes it's as though she's a little mouse crying for attention in the back of the room. Unfortunately she was the only bomb thrower at the debate. Lobbed a few at Paul and Newt. It was a desperate attempt to score some poll numbers and I understand why she did it. She is so far down in the polls she had to roll the dice. I like her and would support her if I thought she had a chance. Sadly it is not to be.


Number 5
Rick Santorum 

I truly feel bad for Rick a former senator. He looks good, speaks well, and I agree with his postions. No one has worked their ass off campaigning more then Rick Santorum. What is there not to like? The poor guy just can't get any traction which is a mystery to me.


Number 4
Ron Paul

This may come as a surprise to some but if Ron Paul became a two term president, under a Republican congress, I bet he could slash the national debt by 80%. That is his strong point. On the negative side he projects someone who is weak on national defense. When he makes remarks like.. I'm paraphrasing here..."I don't care if Iran builds a nuclear bomb or not." Scary to say the least. 
We should elect a president predicated on substance. The reality is, unconsciously or not, appearance has a lot to do with winning the White House. Can you visualize him as president; his wife as first lady? Paul comes across to me as a Barney Fife-like character. On top of that (unless he changed his tune recently) he said if he didn't get the nod he would not support the Republican nominee. He may attempt a third party run which would probably divert just enough votes for the Messiah to get a second term. In other words, he may do for the Republicans what Ralph Nader did for Democrats.


Number 3
Rick Perry


Rick Perry jumped into the campaign like God's gift to America. It was reminiscent of Hillary's campaign... preordained to become the next president... until the Messiah came along. He was totally unprepared entering the race and stated some rather half-baked views on illegals which shot him in the foot early and has still not recovered. The little...Have a heart lecture comes to mind.
That said this last debate I thought he did quite well. His credentials speak for themselves. Probably the most successful governor in the United States. Just sometimes he comes across as a little dumb which would be ok if he was a Democrat running for the VP spot. Bottom line. He admits he's not a great debater which will kill him against the Messiah. For some reason I still like this guy and he has no problem with campaign contributions. Maybe he's diamond in the rough.


Number 2
Newt Gingrich

Hands down the smartest person on the stage. An historian extrodinaire. He could tell you what color tie FDR wore when he made his famous...A date which will live in infamy speech before congress. The MSM is beginning to realize he is a serious threat and are readying themselves for an all out attack. Newt's got a lot of dirty laundry which has been washed by the years but still shows some stains here and there. Married three times, admitted extramarital affairs, the Fannie and Freddie incident, $500,000 shopping spree at Tiffany's, etc. The commercial with Pelosi on Global Warming (climate change back then) was particularly revolting. He suffers from the O'Reilly syndrome. Smart, dead on with the issues, but do you really like him? That is the big issue with Newt, like-ability-electability. Can he go the distance? Can America overlook some personality traits and say...hell with liking him we need someone who can fix America? Oh...and one more thing. I would pay to see Newt debate the Messiah. He would mob the floor with him. We'll just have to wait and see it play out.  


Number 1
Mitt Romney

No candidate is perfect. Some conservatives are still waiting for their night in shining armor to ride in and save the day.  We must work with what we have and in Mitt Romney we have a damn good viable candidate unlike 2008. For starters Romney has the look, the air of a president. I can visualize him in the White House. I can see his wife as first lady bringing back the dignity to the White House once exemplified by Laura Bush .

Does Romney have his share of faults ? Yes. But you have to put  it in proper context. Romney was a Republican Governor in the bluest state in the union Massachusetts, that is a big difference from lets say Perry coming out of Texas. Romney-Care and his flip-flop on abortion is his Achilles heel. But this much I can assure you. There will be no dirt, no matter how many rocks the MSM tries to turn over. There will be no shady business dealings, no mistresses coming out of the woodwork claiming 13 year affairs. Surely the onslaught of being a Mormon will continue. I can only say this... isn't  a Mormon better then the Muslim, or whatever religion he is currently practicing? 

Romney has character and a great track record in the private sector. He is a uniter not a divider. If I could give him some advice I would like to see a little more...fire in the belly..from him but I guess it's just not his style.

I hope and pray Mitt Romney is the next president of the United States.


That said I will support 100% any of the candidates above if they become the nominee.

Good luck to all of them and may God give them guidance.


The country is in such a mess they sure as hell are going to need it.

And the asshole of the month...





 award goes to:







John DeStefano Mayor of New Haven, CT

(I really didn't need to add he's a Democrat did I?) 



What you are about to read is totally off the charts.


New Haven, Connecticut mayor John DeStefano proposed this week to extend voting rights to non-citizens in his city, including immigrants who entered the country illegally.

"All I'm just saying is that like women and African-Americans before them, this is a class of individuals that are precluded from having a say in the community in which they're a part of," DeStefano told the Independent.African-Americans

"I'm just saying if you live here, you work here, you pay taxes here—I think it's reasonable
that you have a say about what goes on," DeStefano added.






For starters moron, women and African-Americans are citizens. What Republican, Democrat, or Independent would sanction such a travesty? No rational human being thinks like this. How do these fuckers keep getting elected?

... in which they’re a part of…Part of what? They're part of Mexico not the United States! Illegal lawbreakers are what they are pure and simple, and you want to give them a voice, an opportunity to vote? Is there anyone in Connecticut with an ounce of brains? When was the last time an American citizen cast a vote in Mexico... you dumbass?

Lowe’s issues apology after pulling ads from All American Muslim










National hardware retailer Lowe's has pulled its advertisements from the TLC show "All-American Muslim." 

However, since announcing that they would be pulling their ads from the TLC show, Lowe’s has been met with a flurry of heated criticism.

The company has issued a statement stating:


“While we continue to advertise on various cable networks, including TLC, there are certain programs that do not meet Lowe’s advertising guidelines, including the show you brought to our attention. Lowe’s will no longer be advertising on that program, we do however encourage all our employees and valued customers to continue watching to see which one explodes first."

You got to be kidding me




The odds of getting this drone back are about as likely as me donating to the Democratic party. 
These are the times we live in. We are all aware a drone went down in Iran presumably on a spying mission. Our government tells us the drone malfunctioned and went down. The Iranians claim they brought it down. Under this administration, the lack of trust, we really don't know what to believe. Pretty pathetic if you ask me.


I almost felt embarrassed for the Messiah. We were in all probability spying, and then with a straight face he expects (almost pleading) the Iranians to return the drone.





 His naiveté is truly remarkable. Although it was an embarrassing incident which we tried to lie our way out of, I don't recall Eisenhower being naive enough to expect the Russians to return the U-2 after Gary Powers was shot down spying over Russia. 


PS: The Iranians are demanding an apology  (knowing this president) one  should be forthcoming shortly.







Obama appeals to Iran to give back downed US top-secret drone, won't comment on intelligence


Iranian TV showed the unmanned "stealth" aircraft apparently undamaged




WASHINGTON — The Obama administration has delivered a formal request to Iran for the return of a U.S. surveillance drone captured by Iranian armed forces, but said it is not hopeful that Iran will comply.
President Barack Obama said Monday that the U.S. wants the top-secret aircraft back. "We have asked for it back. We'll see how the Iranians respond," 





Obama said during a White House news conference with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki on Monday.
In an interview broadcast live Monday night on Venezuelan state television, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said nothing to suggest his country would grant the U.S. request.
"The Americans have perhaps decided to give us this spy plane," Ahmadinejad said. "We now have control of this plane."
Speaking through an interpreter, Ahmadinejad said: "There are people here who have been able to control this spy plane, who can surely analyze this plane's system also. ... In any case, now we have this spy plane."
He added, "Very soon, they're going to learn more about the abilities and possibilities of our country."
On Tuesday, a semi-official Iranian news agency said authorities have shrugged off the U.S. request. Defense Minister Gen. Ahmad Vahidi said the United States should apologize for invading Iranian air space instead of asking for the return of the unmanned aircraft.
Obama wouldn't comment on what the Iranians might learn from studying the downed aircraft. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said it's difficult to know "just frankly how much they're going to be able to get from having obtained those parts."
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Panetta said they're not optimistic about getting the drone back because of recent Iranian behavior that Clinton said indicated "that the path that Iran seems to be going down is a dangerous one for themselves and the region."
"We submitted a formal request for the return of our lost equipment as we would in any situation to any government around the world," Clinton told reporters at a State Department news conference with British Foreign Secretary William Hague.
"Given Iran's behavior to date we do not expect them to comply but we are dealing with all of these provocations and concerning actions taken by Iran in close concert with our closest allies and partners," she said.
Panetta said the request to return the drone was appropriate. "I don't expect that that will happen," he said. "But I think it's important to make that request."
Neither Obama nor Clinton would provide details of the drone request, but diplomatic exchanges between Washington to Tehran are often handled by Switzerland, which represents U.S. interests in Iran. The State Department said Monday that the Swiss ambassador to Iran met with Iranian foreign ministry officials last week but refused to say what they discussed.
Iran TV reported earlier Monday that Iranian experts were in the final stages of recovering data from the RQ-170 Sentinel, which went down in Iran earlier this month. Tehran has cited the capture as a victory for Iran and displayed the nearly intact drone on state TV. U.S. officials say the aircraft malfunctioned and was not brought down by Iran.
Despite the incident, Clinton said the administration and its allies would continue to push Iran to engage over its nuclear program while at the same time increasing pressure on the regime with new, enhanced sanctions.
(Ask Castro how those nasty sanctions work out) 

"We obviously believe strongly in a diplomatic approach. We want to see the Iranians engage and, as you know, we have attempted to bring about that engagement over the course of the last three-plus years. It has not proven effective, but we are not giving up on it," she said.
Standing beside Clinton, Hague agreed.
"We're not giving up on engagement with Iran, but on a number of occasions Iran has behaved in a way in recent weeks and months which has intensified confrontation with the rest of the world," he said. "We have seen an increasing predilection for dangerous and illegal adventures on the part of at least parts of the Iranian regime."
Clinton and Hague referred to the storming of British diplomatic compounds in Tehran, allegations that Iran tried to arrange the assassination of the Saudi ambassador to the United States, Iran's ongoing support for militant groups and its continued defiance of demands to prove its nuclear program is peaceful.

MADE IN AMERICA





On a tip from my brother Gary


Now this makes sense.  Bet our President and Congress never thought of this, as they are so deeply entwined with China, Taiwan, India and all of the other importers who dump there crap on our shores.

SHOULD'NT MADE IN AMERICA MEAN SOMETHING TO ALL OF US? 






THIS NEEDS TO GO TO EVERYONE; HOWEVER, ESPECIALLY THOSE IN THE BUILDING TRADES . . .

We should be helping Americans instead of supporting the f-ing Chinese!


I'm passing this along to everyone I know in the building trades 
including those who work for Habitat for Humanity. 

This is very interesting. Please watch this & then forward it along. 

Take a minute to watch this video to the end and keep it going.... 








Have you ever wondered why almost everything we buy ... Lowes, Target, Home Depot, Wal-Mart etc, is made in China? When we make nothing we become nothing.


Can we really depend on a worthless, inept, government infested with corrupt politicians to produce jobs?




 It's up to us.

Lets band together NOW and save this country before it's to late.
