Would you like a Stock Pick?
As the US campaign is hotting up, might I suggest an investment in hard liquor of all kinds. Breweries are also good too. Might I particularly recommend Seagram's? - I will be imbibing quite a bit of it from now until early November, and probably after it. This particular bottle was half full as of about 4 months ago. Until then it had taken me several years to gradually drain the bottle, this being the one I kept (notice the past tense here) for New Year's, Easter, and "Medicinal purposes." I expect minimally to go through a good half case. Multiply by millions.
Some of my US readers in particular notice that even though Duncan Hunter, who I was supporting, the ONLY decent conservative in the race, dropped out for lack of funds and a "shut-up-I-paid-for-this-microphone" moment of the Reagan variety, which is what he needed to do but didn't. I'm keeping his logo on my site as my little hissy fit.
That backstabber McPain, with his so-called campaign finance reform and his willing accomplices in the press and government, virtually guaranteed that unless a candidate is very wealthy or has union slush money, it's going to be all about the money and not the ideology.
For various reasons I literally can't abide ANY of the presidential contenders. Hucksterbee is a fraud, Paul is a wimp-nut, Guiliani over-my-dead-body, and Romney is a socialist blow dried Massachusetts I-too-can-become-a-god untrustworthy SOB. And this last is the BEST candidate still in. I am NOT at liberty, as things stand now to vote third party or write in in the general election come November, particularly if that witch Hillary gets the nod in her party. Because as bad as Romney or any other Republican is, she is a danger to the republic. Never has such evil seeped into the body politic of America as the Klinton Klan.
There is no true conservative still in the game for the GOP. The best I can pray for is Mitt winning the nod, the conservatives insisting on a REAL conservative like ex(thanks yous a$$hole$ in the Philly 'burbs for falling for Casey)-senator from Pennsylvania Rick Santorum or Hunter for Veep, Mitt winning, then on the day after the election Mitt fooling around on his wife, and his wife incapacitating him so he can't count to 21 unless he is naked, and he is forced to step down in favor of the veep-elect to take office. That's going to require a MIGHTY thick prayer rug. Dream on about a brokered convention, it ain't gonna happen, and if by some chance it does it will be one of the three losers with one of the other two as the running mate, unless the GOP grows hundreds of "sets," which they currently lack, their former "sets" having shriveled up, dropped off, and rolled under couches and behind ice-boxes.
I will continue to display "Hunter" on my blog. So don't assume I haven't been paying attention. As for why McPain is toast, see here, Ann Coulter's 2nd paragraph says it all. For all you need to know about Rudy, the below photo is not photoshopped, other than possibly lighting adjustments.
