1-22-2010 The Weekend Claw

Well, I did it. I made it through my retirement ceremony, and even got most of my speech out. I had to drop a few lines to make it through as my emotions took hold. I’ve taken the final salute and the uniform is hung up for the last time. Now I can be one of those crotchety old retirees at the local VFW or Fleet Reserve Association hall. For the next two weeks, I’ll be very busy and will have little to no internet access as my current residence gets packed up, moved, and unpacked. I don’t anticipate posting another column until sometime in the second week of February.

Another short column today. Other priorities this week.

Oh, this is rich. The Crawfish currently lives in Patrick Murphy’s Congressional district. I just got
this e-mail from him. He’s claiming to be a big budget cutter and waste eliminator. “The United States is in the most severe recession since the 1930s. Folks throughout the district are sitting around their kitchen tables making tough decisions about their family budgets. I am fighting in Washington to make sure that the federal government does the same. I am working hard every day not only to get our economy back on track, but also to cut wasteful government spending and rein in the national debt.” Oh really??? “I have voted for over $16 billion in spending cuts, cosponsored legislation to end wasteful, outdated policies such as federal subsidies for mohair (saving $28 million each year).” But what about the $800,000,000,000 “stimulus” bill that he voted for, or the $2,500,000,000,000+ Obamacare bill that he voted for? Oh, he did vote against Congressional pay raises, so that proves that he really means it, right?

Is there any kind of financial dealings that Obama doesn’t want to nationalize? Now
he’s planning to take over the student loan industry! The government already subsidizes student loans under the direction of the unConstitutional Department of Education. It is time to get the federal government OUT of education, period.

Speaking of unConstitutional, the Supreme Court finally threw out most of the McCain-Feingold campaign finance law. Five of the nine SCOTUS Justices realized that
the First Amendment really does exist and is written in plain English. The four anti-Constitutionalist liberals of the Court disagreed, as did the White House, Upchuck Schumer, and the vast majority of the Democratic Party. What’s so hard to understand about “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press”???

The liberals and the media…dang, I repeated myself again…have been screeching that the Tea Party movement and conservatives throughout the nation are all angry whites. They just can’t seem to wrap their heads around the fact that many blacks are realizing that cradle-to-grave government dependency is killing black America,
and they’re fighting back. I’ve said it many times, but I’d love to see J.C. Watts get back into the game.

All I can say to

Hugo the Red has lost what was left of his mind. He’s blaming the US for the Haiti earthquake. Specifically, he says the
US Navy tested a weapon that caused the quake.

We had another victory against the liberals on Wednesday. Erroll Southers
withdrew as the nominee to head the Transportation Security Administration because of conservative opposition to his unionization attempts.

Is there
any member of the Obama Administration who is pro-America and leads a moral and law-abiding life? Their motto must be “Who needs morals? They are rules that stifle your life, just like that silly old Constitution thingy.”

If y’all come across any weird/stoooopid/strange news stories that might be fodder for The Weekly Claw or The Weekend Claw, e-mail them to me at and I’ll consider ‘em. Yes, I will give you newshounds credit.

  1. You take of yourself Old Tar, throw an oar on your shoulder sand keep going until someone asks "What the heck you got there ?"


  2. Best wishes for a safe and uneventful trip back home to God's country (Texas). Bob's My Uncle and I will be happy to welcome you back with a beer or two. Let us know when you've settled in. Many thanks for you service and for your blogging - both are appreciated.

  3. Gar,
    How'd you know I was a USNR-TAR (Training and Administration of Reservists)?

  4. Garnet,
    I'll take ya up on the offer.

  5. Congrats and get a job or you'll act and think like most of Obama's clones! The SCOTUS decision should have been 10 yrs. ago when McCain-Feingold was passed. Still now the unions and Leftist Sorros people will have competition on election ads from others right up to election day, which McCain had stopped.

  6. Glenn,
    I can't believe how Schumer and the rest are complaining about how corporations shouldn't have speech rights because they aren't individual people, but they support union bosses being able to steal dues money from workers, who are FORCED by liberal state governments to join unions if they want a job, to use for the exact same thing.

  7. Come on Claw…fess up! You can’t deny your participation in the development of the ultra-secret earthquake weapon, or the Navy’s role in Operation Destroy Haiti.

    Congrats again!

  8. With as much as you have going on,I'm surprized you put one up... A)CONGRATS once again on your retirement,and a THANK YOU for your service. B)I wonder if Murphy's finger is chapped from licking it,and sticking it up into the wind.C)Had the damn GOP abolished this mess when THEY had the opportunity,Obama screwing it up further could not happen. EPIC FAIL on GWB's part,IMHO.D)This decision,while welcome,is way too late. Another thing Bush should have given the finger to.What the hell are the dhimmis whining about? Now,the damnable UNIONS can open their wallets as well.E)Sure points out who the racists REALLY are.It is GREAT to see the libs squealing like the pigs they are.F) THIS is what happens when people DO NOT understand that radio,like ANYTHING else,is a BUSINESS. Not a screech-monkey forum.You have a good product that can attract an audience,ratings,and the ad dollars will follow.Proof positive liberalism can't even be sold to liberals.G) How about a test firing with live ammo on Hugo's crib.H) Another fool to bite the dust.GOOD.Only bad thing,the next suc..err,I mean nominee,will be much worse.I) Short answer:NO. Moral of the story here is ..DON'T piss off a mistress,ESPECIALLY one with money!mwahahahaha C YA!!

  9. 1. Yeah, JC Watts. He's one of us Okie good ol' boys.
    2. Hugo and the Frogs are also saying we are occupying Hati. Like we'd really want that dung heap.
    3. that the ex-FBI dude who was using FBI files trying to dig up dirt on his ol' lady's boy friend?
    4. Home is the sailor. Welcome ashore. Now you can join the rest of us old pharts telling sea stories none of us believe and having a few cold ones. Let me know when you get settled in Cowtown.

  10. Craw I have been out of the loop for a while. Just starting to read e-mails etc. Looking forward to reading more of your postings. I especially love your quote by G.K. Chesterton. As always thank you for defending Our People our USA and Our Constitution.

  11. thanks for your service to our nation. keep the good info coming. Enjoy your well earned retirement. Darvin Dowdy

    I thought it was just a bad case of gas...

  13. clyde,
    a) Thanx my friend. The little time I had was reflected in the lack of length of the column.
    b) The only wind Murphy notices is the hot air from P-Lousy's lips
    c) Wasn't that in the Contract For America 1994?
    d) I just want to get the mandatory union laws dropped in the union states.
    e) Which party is INTENTIONALLY keeping blacks down in order to keep their votes?
    f) Not to mention that absconding with funds from the Boys & Girls Clubs to run your network just ain't right.
    g) Kinda like Ronny did with Kadaffy Duck?
    h) What'll the next one be guilty of?
    i) And we thought HILLARY! was miffed!

  14. Buck,
    1) And he's a PK on top of that.
    2) Why would we want to occupy Haiti? That makes as much sense as turning the US into a socialist nation.
    3) Yes it is!
    4) Thanx. Wilco.

  15. Bear,
    it has been my honor and pleasure to serve.

  16. DD,
    I'll be back and recharged in a couple of weeks.

  17. Congrats on Retirement! -Yes--this is 8th man from TH!Is't it funny those who scream about the first admendment whyle "war protesting" (wow-THAT reveals my age dos'nt it?) are the very ones who want to stifle all others??go figure. keep up the fight Craw!

  18. 8th Man,
    Thanx for stopping by. Liberal/leftist hypocrisy is a wonderous thing to observe.

  19. You should be proud Crawfish, your service was honorable.

    As for Air America, you knew this was coming. They have run out of people to steal from.

    BTW, what is McCain saying about the McCain-Feingold decision?

    Again Crawfish welcome to the civilian ranks. The Navy's loss is our gain.

  20. Ghost,
    The only people left for Scair America to steal from was the union thugs, and they're better at stealing than Frankin and Maddow are.

    Whar be my unemployment check?!?!?!

  21. Welcome to the ranks of your fellow retirees!

    Congrats, Craw. Well Done and all that!

    It's only been a few months for me, but you'll enjoy yourself.

    Now get your butt back here to Texas!

  22. Congrats to you and thank you for your service! You are a great American!

    By the way, the Obama guy has already done something with student loans. I am almost done paying mine off. Since he took office, the payment has gone up twice. Super! Makes me feel warm and fuzzy!

  23. Welcome back to the states. Too bad we have an administration who doesn't like you and their base that would only scoff at you. Luckily their base is shrinking day by day as this administration piles the debt up.

  24. Catmman,
    a) Welcome to my new digs. Hope to see ya 'round here often.
    b) Leaving the People's Republic of Pennsylvania on Saturday. We'll be back in Foat Wuth Monday afternoon!

  25. Susan,
    The Chosen One will do whatever it takes to stifle productivity and drive the entire populace into gumment dependency.

  26. Eric,
    I haven't been OUT of the states. That was Mrs. Crawfish who went to the Middle East between Thanksgiving and Christmas.

  27. Crawfish,
    Welcome home. Let us hear from you when you get settled. I know FW well. My dad grew up near Arlington Heights HS. As Garnet said, we'll be happy to buy you a beer (or three) at your convenience.
