The Union Worker, the scourge of the Universe…

Ahhhhh, fellow haters. Take for instance professor Don Boudreaux, a Free Market Economist at George Mason University. Recently he was attacked for his nasty Capitalist buttrixing by some kid about Dons website Café Hayek, namely it was a place where tenured US professors lobby ferociously against protecting US jobs.

Sir Don responded, and among other things that caught the ~h's hairy eyeball was the Doctors statement that trade changes the pattern of domestic employment; it doesn't destroy domestic jobs on net". Well said. Meaning let the banks and the auto makers fail and the market will self correct. This opens the door to a discussion of labor, and Unions in particular. While I am sure most labor will dismiss a 'tenured economist professor' they will champion the Unions.

the Hatriolic has long held that Unions were a scourge on the American landscape. A long time ago they had their place, but now…

Where else can you go to work and earn $75,000 a year to screw lug nuts on a new Chevy. I’m sorry, but the pay needs to fit the labor, and in any other industry without Union bully's at the top the pay would be in the $10/hour range. And you better believe those high labor cost are passed on to you, the customer. These ridiculous labor controlled cost are why automobiles cost as much as they do now.

And, isn’t it a coincidence that BHO is bailing the auto makers out?

Let them fail. Let the market self correct. Who knows, would we replace the lost jobs of failed US Auto makers with new, better jobs? Maybe a new more financially sound automaker might rise from the ashes without the Union worker.

Also, as far as "open trade" are we only trading manufacturing jobs with the retail jobs to sell the goods made elsewhere? Same pay...

My point - the government is interfering with self correction and we will prolong our agony. Especially by having the American taxpayer pay the Union workers wages.

... and before I get crucified for downing the union worker (so save your crayon letters) I'll go on record to state 'Bravo Zulu' for the people who took advantage of unions for great Pay & Benefits. But please also check your history: the majority of Union workers do not vote for themselves, meaning they don't generally think for themselves for risk of losing out on their jobs (check the voting rosters for Carter & Clinton). Also don't forget that Carl Marx and Adolf Hitler harnessed the union workers first to fight for 'equality' in their socialist climb to the top.

Last, how much innovation and ambition has been killed by the Unions and Gov't jobs, clearly the biggest employers in the US?

Prince, Prophet, Savior, Rock Star…


the following is a repost by the Hatriolic

the Hatriolic is not a conspiracy theorist, but he finds the following new headlines interesting in regards to the state of our Country – these United States:

White House Accidentally E-Mails to Reporters Story That Maliki Supports Obama Iraq Withdrawal Plan

World Trip Could Push Rock-Star Persona to New Heights...

Will speak at Berlin's Victory Column...
Sarkozy Session Set for Paris on July 25...

Because America is soooo lazy, Obama will win.

Why?, you ask.

Because yours hateful has observed that the majority of Americans would rather watch movies, TV, and play video games of exiting life events rather than live them. You see, being an adventurous soul like my little bitty self requires effort. If a hateful soul wants to hike the wilderness, he has to get off his @$$ and pack his backpack, plan where he will go, leave a trip plan (most important!), get in the car, and go. Not just once, but a lot! Fishing… lets see… research tackle, practice knots, find the right spot, and fish. Fly… research flying lessons… yougetthepoint.

But, too many people watch Batman catch all the fish whilst he’s backpacking in the Rockies (ummm, did I just cross too many wires?). Ohhhh, y’all leave the movie theater all tired and nasty like you did it yourself. Plethora’s of kids play war games on X-Box instead of getting some war surplus, dressing up, and running around the neighborhood playing Tet Offensive.

Which, speaking of Vietnamese… brings me back to my original point. As a hater, the Hatriolic (me, the illustrious), is a conservative. For him, this has been a lackluster campaign. On the Democrat side we had two exiting people slugging it out, making headlines, creating all kinds of fuss… and we get…


You see, with Obama’s Rock Star Tour befitting a Prince (you’d think this guy was Diana for hooples sake)

He’s exciting.

Obama is the Video Game. He’s the Box Office sellout. He’s the Mohammad rep at the Pilgrimage…

Johnny, well… he’s just downright boring. Never mind that he is for the very items that will get this country out of this slump – drilling, anti-abortion, appointing the right Supreme Court judges, tax breaks.

But to vote for McCain, you have to actually think for yourself rather than get carried away with the moment. Research his background. And weigh the options.

But the voting college heads, the fringe, the Blacks, and the idiots who only voted for G. Dubya cause he had a Ted Koppel appeal will pull the trigger on Obama.

And they really won’t give any thought at all.

After all, isn’t he a Rock Star?

Soldiers at Walter Reed Deserve Better

The Great ~H is busy... so listen to the following instead this week:

Thursday , February 22, 2007

(originally posted by Col. David Hunt at Fox News)

Stop right now. Stop watching Anna Nicole Smith's death; stop watching lawyers yell about nothing. Pay attention, because this next one is important. No more politics, no more hiding behind empty phrases and photo opportunities and nine-second sound bites.

Wounded — and by wounded, I mean missing arms, legs, eyes, heads caved in, all wounds that will be visible for the rest of their lives — soldiers have been left to sleep in rooms with mice and mildew, substandard in every respect, at Walter Reed Medical Center. Just so we are clear — this is happening in Washington D.C., less than ten miles from the White House. This is happening to soldiers who were blown apart in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Politicians and generals of every ilk have been visiting our great soldiers at Walter Reed during this war and making all these grand statements about caring, love, sacrifice and — my favorite — the best medical care money can buy. Well, apparently that pays for rats and lousy treatment.

As bad as these living conditions are, and they are bad, the amount of crap that a wounded soldier and his family have to go through to continue to get the treatment they have earned is staggering.

Soldiers from all our wars have served and been forgotten, and because of the type of men and women they are, they seldom complain; but they damn well should. Have you ever wondered what would happen if more senior officers like generals or (God forbid) politicians or a secretary of defense were forced to spend their days in rooms such as they ones discovered by the press, or treated like second class citizens as so many wounded young men and women are? Well, wonder no more. If that were the case, the problem would have been fixed already.

If we’re going to send soldiers off to fight for us and be blown apart for us, then we owe them the best medical care we can afford for the rest of their lives, period. We’re spending $2 billion a week in Iraq — in Iraq, not at Walter Reed Medical Center — that ought to upset you. The Army just upgraded one of its burn centers in Texas. You know how? With donations from private citizens, that's how. But we’re spending $2 billion in Iraq — are you getting my point here?

I remember not too long ago we impeached a President for lying about SEX. Gee whiz, that was serious! Now we have soldiers with their bodies torn apart, limbs blown off, gallons of blood spilled in the sand, and they wind up in room with mice, rats, and mildew. And, when they leave those hellish accommodations, they enter the ether zone of a military and veterans care system that lets them down every day. That seems to me to be a bit more serious than lying about sex, but that’s just me.

Sure, the rooms will be painted, committees will be formed, speeches will be made, and not a damn thing will change. Soldiers will still have to fight massive bureaucratic battles to get the medical treatment their brave hearts and missing limbs have already paid for.

In this new war, this World War III, this War on Terror, we can no longer sit still and allow this to happen. We have great private citizens spending their money to help soldiers with medical issues that our government is totally responsible for providing, but still is not. So private citizens are not only giving soldiers the gear they need to fight this war — everything from body armor to parts for helicopters — they are now helping mend and care for those same soldiers, because the government cannot or will not. Come on; get angry! Rant and throw things; this really is worth turning away from blondes and lawyers on TV.

On February 21, when asked at a press conference if anyone was being fired for this mess, the Vice Chief of Staff of the Army said, “No.” Well, “no” means that this travesty is guaranteed to happen again and again. We cannot win wars by treating our soldiers like this, and we might deserve to lose if you — yeah, you reading this — do not care enough to do something.We are a great nation, but we are diminished by this. We are no better than how we treat our nation’s bravest.

Right now, we suck!

Ohhh, the War in Iraq. Now I get it!

Do you get it? I get it! Your Hateful servant believes that your average American gets it, but Congress, including the Bush administration, doesn’t think we do.

And what is it, you ask... (you are asking, aren't you?)

Radio Talk Show Host
Glenn Beck railed last week on this subject, stating that our entire federal government is totally out of touch. The average guy working in the auto plants in Detroit, the cashier at a Chicago suburb Wal-Mart, investment brokers in Dallas, the truck drivers, the military men and women, us, we, get it.

What we, comma, the people, comma, get, comma, is, COMMA, we are not winning this war and never intended to. We all hate war. We all understand war sucks.

But we also know that NOBODY in the Middle East will ever be a friend to America. Even if we (in our euphoric fantasy) “give them” Democracy.

People, never forget we are a Nation formed by the people, for the people, in a Judeo-Christian society. This means that the Muslim religion must be interpreted as a false god that is against freedom, and this religion cannot be tolerated. They are anti everything our Constitution and the Declaration of Independence is for. If we ever form our government after Islam all Americans would loose rights real fast. But we continue to be “sensitive” to them, and intolerant of any Judeo-Christian view in the public forum.

Think I’m being un-constitutional? Consider this. I bet Janet Reno would’ve never given the go ahead into Waco the way they did if that had been an Islamic Cult

Yes, the average American gets it. Fight war to win. We shouldn’t be over there nation building. 50 years from now the infrastructure we have spent billions on will be used against us or would’ve been destroyed in a civil war. We are wasting our time and tax dollars.

We should’ve really given them SHOCK AND AWE, and then left.


Yes, I don’t think a whole lot of average Americans would shed too many tears if we just pulled out and used a few tactical nuc’s in the process on some nest of terror. Call it an exclamation point of smoke ;-)

Then threaten to use bigger ones if they hit us again like 9/11.

That would save countless American lives.

And that, my friends, is all any average American really cares about.



Hello, and welcome to 1984…

The Hatriolic is not a conspiracy theorist. But he finds the following headlines interesting in regards to Hoover’s 1950 suspicions that Communist are taking over our country:




Governor Plans To Fire Oregon Climatologist for Skeptical View of Warming...

Sooo, what does ~h make of this? Vell, you vust go with the liberal flow, or velse…

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Ms. Bush Pelosi is DEMANDING Presidential level treatment for transportation. Call it PELOSI ONE. She claims she needs higher than normal protection for her flights back to her district, which happens to be San Fran ;-). The Bush Administration has so far denied her request, so her peeps are retaliating with leaky opinions about sexist policies.

Other of her people-ses are hailing this as a triumph for the Weymen-ses of America.

My friends, this has nothing to do with Women’s Lib and nothing to do with security.


Contrast this request for a big jumbo jet consuming millions of dollars of global warming fuel a year against her normal stance of eco-worship. And this is an unprecedented request ever from a Speaker of the House.

You’d think that she would be against using such an aircraft, but, alas, like the USSR, she takes the stance that only the well performing members of the “Party” are rewarded with perks.

Yet she hates corporate America with their golden parachutes and lavish lifestyles. She is a redistribution of wealth warrior. Your money is not really your money, it’s the peoples money.

No, this is all about making a statement, its about blatant abuse of power, its about in your face Democrats Gone Wild.

And sources in the Pentagon say she will most likely get it, despite the Bush Administrations' objections. Seems Nancy and Jack Murtha control the purse strings for DOD

If a republican ever had the gall to ask for such perks then bribe the pentagon they would’ve been crucified in the press and congress.

But… since she is a women, you know, she gets yet another free pass.

Don’t-ja just luv Amerika?

Mr. Ach doesn’t really have much to say about this anymore…

Why the Hatriolic will never cooperate with the Authorities…

First, sorry for the hiatus. Lots to do, and the hate mail written with Majic Markers about how judgemental the Duke Lacross Players and Natalie article was – come on guys! Your Hateful servant partied hard when he was the same age! There was a point to be made, and the libs missed it. Sometimes yutes can be (in the words of Michael Jackson)

so hurtful…

On with the show; you guys been watching the news? Lets get hypothetical…

IF, (and for ~h that means NEVER) the Hatriolic ever gets accused of a Crime, he will never, ever give up his 5th amendment rights! While THE Hatriolic would never resist arrest, he would never subject himself to the following by any officer of the law (hang with me, there's another point to be made):
1. any search of his house, auto, or any other portable domicile without a warrant
2. any lie detector test
3. any interrogation (can you say “where did I put that ded-gum Lawyer?…”)
4. or any other sundried attempt at self incrimination

Why (says you grasshoppers)?

Because of the latest breaking news (go here for crying out loud!). They now have a suspect in the JonBenet Ramsey case. A sexual predator, who (allegedly, purportedly, reportedly…) admitted to the rape and murder of the girl. This idiot apparently told investigators he did it, revealing facts about the case never released to the public (which I find hard to believe with the tittle-tattler Mayor of Boulder Colorado, Leslie Durgan spewing her unsubstantiated claims)

Listen to me carefully here. If y’all recall, Patsy Ramsey has been the primary suspect right from the beginning. Many documentaries and People Magazine articles have been written telling of rumors that Patsy beat young JonBenet to death over her wetting the bed that fateful night. The leaks in this case were horrible – suspicions that the father found the body when the police couldn’t, the video’s of her in the pageants (leading to open speculation the father – John Ramsey - had a weird sexual obsesion in her …yea, maybe he did it), the ransom note for Johns exact bonus check that Christmas, and the constant pestering by police to get Patsy to submit to a hand writing analysis. All America wanted to see this upper class family get taken out!

Lets get back to the hand writing analysis. The original police detectives and prosecuting attorneys have gone on record that they believed the parents did it. They did so on A&E, Court TV, and Discovery “documentaries”. With all this info, there is no doubt that if Patsy Ramsey had submitted to the hand writing sampling requested by law enforcement, she would have most likely been convicted quickly in a court of law! (remember, the media made much ado about the similarities in the hand writing of the ransom note and Patsy’s hand writing found in the house).

Sadly, Patsy died this June. The last years of her life were hell, and she died knowing most Americans thought she and/or her husband were guilty. It was bad enough to loose her daughter so tragically.

So, I make my case.

There is a 5th amendment for a reason (and if you don’t know it, you’re not really a fan of mine ;-)

That’s all for now,


JonBenet Ramsey - Aug 6, 1990 to Dec 26, 1996
Patricia Ann Ramsey - Dec. 29, 1956 to Jun 25, 2006

Natalee Holloway and the tale of the Duke Lacrosse Players…

Once upon a time, there was a young, innocent 18 year old girl, who, on her high school graduation trip, got abducted, raped, killed, and now no one can find her body…

Once upon a time, the innocent youthful (and cute) Duke Lacrosse team had a get together. During this meeting of team camaraderie and male bonding, a girl of ill repute took dead aim at these rich have’s, and her little “have not” self lied and told the authorities she was kidnapped, raped, and treated with racist disrespect…


The hateful peruser of news has been waiting to hear reports on the immoral drunken reverie that got these "innocent" kids in all this trouble in the first place.

I’m not trying to take away from the grief of the Holloway family nor diminish the fact that the Duke Lacrosse players are innocent until proven guilty.

But one has to wonder, would any of these kids be in dire straits if they were the media darlings they’re made out to be?

That fateful night when the majority of the 2005 Mountain Brook High School graduation class was in their hotel rooms in Aruba packed ready to depart the next morning, news accounts state that Natalee was out drinking and romancing Orum Humersmoot or whatev’ his name is at a BAR all day! She was 18 folks! - underage! And she was laying down on the bar letting boys lick jello shots of liquor off her half naked body that day Look Here, and the FBI has reports of her drug possession/use.
Arubas drinking age is 18, but for chaperones to allow highschool seniors to drink like this is irresponsible! I don't know about you folks, but if the Hatriolic was out getting drunk and jello licked all day he would've gotten his butt tore up by his Momma! and you can guar-ron-tee she would've found out!

She was discovered missing THE NEXT MORNING! Apparently there was no room check by the chaperones the night before. NO ROOM CHECK! Even collegiate football and basketball teams (and some NFL/NBA teams) get room checks the night before an away game by their coaches. These were high school seniors. Was there any accountability for the chaperones?
Switch to the recent events at Duke University. If the Lacrosse Peeps were snug like bugs in their beds at midnight that weekend night instead of taking up a tithe collection to hire said girl to come over and take her britches off, they would’ve finished their season with finess.

These are not little boys getting persecuted, these are voting age adults. ALL OF THEM. No, in their educated wisdom they HIRED A STRIPPER at midnight, when the party should’ve been winding down. What kind of girl did they think they would get at midnight? A good honest entertainer? A show girl off “off broadway”? do they have that in Nawth Kakalaky?
News accounts she is a single mother working her way through college blah blah blah - oh PUKE!!! SHE WAS A STRIPPER!!! - again for clarification in case you missed it the first time. Her criminal record is public – she is a dishonest convicted felon, and admitted having sex with three other people that day... Look here too Invite this kind of person over for "ambiance", and aren't you just surprised at the outcome of this party?

The ~h isn’t trying to say Natalee or the Duke boys deserve to either be murdered or wrongfully accused of rape. I hope they find out the truth at that party and also find/prosecute the murderer of Natalee (if that's what happened).

But the hateful servant is sick and tired of America’s obsession with these cases. If these kids were behaving as they should they would never have exposed themselves to these dire consequences and that is the point. Parents tell their teenagers and college aged kids to avoid this kind of behavior for good cause. No, not every kid who drinks a beer will get in this kind of trouble, but you have to admit, these kids were "cruisin 4 a bruisin".

And no one seems to report that.

Port? or Starboard…

Take your pick – Syria and Jordan on the West, …Iran on the East. And us, like the cool stuff in the middle of an Oreo. That’s why the Hatriolic believes that we haven’t been hit since 9/11 with another terrorist attack on the homeland.

In his book
Imperial Hubris author Michael Scheuer states that Sneaky Nasty Islamic Terrorist * (SNIT's – my title) only understand one thing – power. Please understand that these SNITs are not stupid, just crazy . While they reveled in watching Americans die on 9/11, they also understand brute force, especially when used against them.

* And yes, I said Islamic - you would have to be an idiot to not get the point that this is a religious war, not a war over land, or oil, or who invented grape flavored lip gloss.

And herein lies my theory – because they hit us so hard on 9/11, things began falling out of the sky. You know, one way cargo. From high flying invisible aircraft. Lots of one way laser guided cargo. Then the massive invasion force. Afganistan. Iraq. The cowardly scampering Taliban. The destruction of the Iraqi National Guard. Osama hiding out like a cave cricket (he probably looks like one now…). With his fellow SNIT's.

The crux of my theory is these mullahs had to face their own people who are now suffering. Suffering brought on them because of actions by their local planning board.

So, while they play hide and seek with us over there, they won’t hit us because we’ll figure out that someone on the East, West, North, or South side of Iraq funded, harbored, trained or thought it was funny…

And we’ll just simply pull chocks.

There you have it. It’s that simple. We get hit again, and the world’s most powerful military will simply pull chocks and head either Port or Starboard. There would be no “stand up” of forces. We are already there. We would say goodby Iraq and Hello Iran, or How yo ‘Doin Syrians? or Wassup Jordan? You want Global Warming? It’s only a nuclear cruise missile away. All of them can meet Allah all at once. Yes, I believe ol’ Dubya has us parked out there to show them who is really 'Tha Maa-yun'!

On 9/11, our citizens, or freedom, our way of life was attacked by cowards. We will stand down that ENEMY.

I just hope they fill the next howitzer round with pork bellies…

It was all that I could do to keep from cryin'

Sometimes it seems so useless to remain...
You don't have to call me darlin', darlin'
You never even call me by my name…
(David Allen Coe)

ABC News has selected the United States Coast Guard as Persons of the Year.

Well… its about Ded-Gum time! After over 200 years the Coast Guard finally gets some recognition. Sources close to the Hatriolic say the above song has long been the unofficial CG anthem (second to Semper Paratus).

For the longest time the Coast Guard has been an unknown quantity. Most Americans know them only from the orange helicopter they saw on Baywatch. Maybe now Coast Guard men and women will stop hearing statements such as the Coast Guard has ships?, or aren’t you guys the reserve ‘guard’ component of the Navy? or better yet what DO you guys really do?

Yes, they be Rescuers. But they are more than that. They are a force of around 80,000 total people consisting of about 38,000 Active Duty personnel, 8,000 Reservist, 7,000 Civilians, and another 30,000 Auxiliaries. They have 200 plus aircraft and 4,900 boats. They have over 25 different classes of Cutter’s (65’ up to 400’) with between 2 to 12 vessels per class, one 295’ sailing vessel, over 200 CG aircraft (yes, they even have jets…), and over 1400 small boats. Their missions vary from Port Security to Search and Rescue to Maritime Waterway Protection (Oil Spills and Shipping Regulation enforcement) to Law Enforcement (yes… they still hunt drug smugglers) to Aids to Navigation (Buoys etc) to … well you get the picture (more at this link).

And yes, the Coast Guard was there in New Orleans for Hurricane Katrina. Many were deployed there from other commands on September 1st, and stayed through all the madness until the Coast Guard rescued well over 33,000 people. That’s right folks, thirty three thousand ‘peeps. In two weeks!

It's also noteworthy that the junior most Enlisted and Officer crews bore the brunt of this massive effort. Those were not Captains, Admirals, or Chiefs out there in those helicopters and boats – they were the youngest the Coast Guard had to offer (like 18 – late 20’s). Many of these crews operated independently without specific task direction in the riskiest of situations and the most arduous of circumstances. I feel we owe these folks our most heartfelt thanks.

So BZ Coast Guard! Thank you ABC for remembering the Coast Guard! Time Mag should be jealous.
