The Bi-Annual (or something like that) Rottie Fund Raiser

…in which we grovel before you and ask you to kindly consider parting with whatever shekels The Obamessiah has allowed you to keep in order to keep the Empire running. It’s not like we, like he, can just raise taxes to feed ourself.

Not that you have to. It’s just a reminder that times are tough (as if you needed reminding) and it’s highly unlikely that we, like ACORN COI, will get a huge check in the mail from Der Führer.

Besides, our A/C is crapping out, just as we hit 105 degrees. Beautiful timing and thanks a whole fucking lot.

There’s a Donate button on the left sidebar and, if the HTML gods are willing and we didn’t fuck up, one at the bottom of this post.

Yes, we know. We’re hitting double digit unemployment rates thanks to the “wisdom” of Teh One™ and we’re most definitely NOT the only ones hurting from The Age of Plenty™, so don’t feel pressured, please.

Thanks to all of you for having hung around for all of these years, and thanks to those of you who joined us recently as well. We need every warm body we can get to fight the abomination that is the Jug-eared Freak of 1600 Penn Ave, and I’m honored to be still able to host a site where we can all get together.

Long may it last.

Thatisall.

    You mean to tell me that the rubles you are being paid can actually be cut?!? For all the magic you perform here at the Rott, I would ask that you get paid in, at the very least, in Malaysian ringgit! I know, I’m just a generous Canadian looking out for your best interest. Rubles, really!?!

    Don’t mention it…

    Explains a lot, doesn’t it…

    And the very same capitalism that enabled those little darlings to go to said school is being portrayed as evil!?!

    Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin are smiling…

    There’s an old Chinese proverb “be very careful what you wish for, you just might get it…”

    Does this mean that I have to take yet another pay cut from the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler Empire?

    You’ve been getting paid?!?! Oh, that’s right… you actually DO something around here. Nevermind.

    Sir Fresh Sign @9:

    It’s all pretty much explained in the first entry at Zomblog…

    In Berkeley. . .the personalized license plates say “Gramsci”

    Berkeley is so left-wing that people will pay extra to get personalized license plates which refer to Antonio Gramsci, the communist philosopher who advocated the methodical long-term infiltration by leftists into positions of influence in academia, media and local politics as a necessary precursor to a “stealth” socialist cultural shift which will lead inevitably to a complete nationwide Marxist revolution.

    All I want to know Misha is what do I do with these tickets to Michael Jackson’s upcoming comeback tour that you so graciously paid me in?

    Sell ’em to Congress as “Perpetual Carbon Off-sets”. Hey, they believe that they can run the banks, car companies, mortgage industry, energy industry and health care industry better than the private sector and that they can control the weather climate by taxing us into third world economic status via Algore’s Glow Bull Worming Ponzi Scheme™, so they’ll buy anything.

    I like peachka. How much?

    LC Rurik says:

    @ L.C. Mope, Imperial Offsetter:

    If it is an O.D. can, it is priceless. It will not be surrendered or sold – but will be shared with a comrade in a time of tightness – even if its the last can. That is the meaning of a can of peaches. To translate into Mope-speak – it is the last bottle of Samuel Adams. And I know that you would share even that with a fellow Rottie in extremis; you are a Rottie.

    I OBJECT! Not that I am in a position right now to do much about it. Nor is it any of my business, but you should really be taking care of Mary! Give Mary my best, and keep those flowers we sent watered.

    LC HJ Caveman82952 says:

    I am taking care of her Mope….honestly. But I figured I could cough up a sawbuck recycling some old cans and bottles I got in the boneyard, my garage. Yes, the bills are rolling in now, and I am paying them as best I can, so far so good. I have been hoarding. As for the future, I will worry about it then. It seems life for me now laden with miracles, so much happening. Mary got her hip drilled again today. It hurt a lot she said. But some happy pills are helping, and now she can hold down more than jello and cottage cheese. Tomorrow we hear the verdict, and our guts are knotted. More chemo? If so what kind and how much? She looks like hell and feels worse, but her spirit shines right through. What do you say to a loved one when she says, “Kent…I don’t mean to whine, but I hurt now, inside and out.”
    After TWO solid WEEKS of chemo? A month in the hospital so far?
    It’s a meatgrinder, no other word for it.
    I held her while she cried it out, telling her of my loyalty to and love for her.
    People in this town are talking about us now…our relationship and loyalties.
    A fund raiser now in progress…..so far bills about twenty-five hundred after insurance, soon to escalate I fear. But there is a cap on this shit.
    I could tell them I am a Rottie, but they wouldn’t understand……
    The flowers are still there, at the nurses station. None allowed in rooms. They are healthy Mope.
    I may meet Chris next Tuesday, Sir Fresh Sign. But folks,I had something beautiful happen to me today…I am still in shock.
    Heck, I’ll just share it…..and you can marvel too…….I will never forget this day…a gift from a man I helped twenty years ago………..I thought it was just a little thing. I guess he didn’t…….

    What is it that makes people find something inside themselves to share, to give….?
    I just had something amazing happen to me.
    A man I haven’t seen in twenty years, his name is Joe…….I had forgotten his last name, now I keep it to myself, for he did me a great favor, an act of kindness.
    I really don’t know what to say……..
    No, it wasn’t money…not directly anyway.
    I had finished fixing my gate, trimming my hedge, and having had a talk with the publisher of The Sun, our local paper, I wondered what to do with myself.
    Earlier this morning, at the Elephant, a friend there asked me where he could get some ammo, for he had two rounds left. Cartridges for you politically correct types.
    I told him to give me five minutes, traveled home, returning with fifty .38 Specials.
    He asked me what I owed him…
    I said a box of ammo. But not to rush it.
    For I had a friend once give me two hundred rounds. Cartridges, again, etc.
    Teasing him, “Leaving a friend without ammo is like leaving a thirsty man with no water.”
    Again, musing my options, I elected to go to Big 5 Sporting Goods in Los Banos, for I had less than a hundred rounds of .357 to me. I could afford some ammo. Not much, but some.
    I had fully intended to simply buy two boxes of ammunition…..
    I did stop at the gun display, marveling and admiring all those pretty rifles and shotguns.
    Suddenly a voice, calling my name….recognition from the distant, dusty archives…
    Turning, I know this man…….
    His name is Joe…..I knew him from a place I used to work, we had become friends.
    He had never met my wife, although he knew of her and how I felt about her.
    Asking me how she is….and I told him.
    His face became grim, relating of a friend lost to cancer, another one beating it after it beating the shit out of him…..
    He pointed to the rack, “You really like those, don’t you?”
    “Yeah, I look and wonder….maybe dream a little…”
    Spotting my two boxes of .357…, “That all you getting?”
    “It’s all I can afford, Bro’…”
    “You know they have a Mossie on super sale?”
    “Yeah, I do…..three hundred bucks, an eight shot, 500A, twelve gauge pump. Beautiful gun!”
    “Let’s take a look at it…”
    The manager unlocking the rack, her handing the gun to him, he handing it to me.
    Looking at it, safety on top, slide release on the left, action clean and smooth, sighting down it, the balance nice, stock tucked into my shoulder.
    I spoke….
    “Mossie makes a damn fine shotgun…this one a lot nicer than mine. Shes’ beautiful, Dude!”
    He spoke….
    “You look like you’re in seventh heaven…..you like it?”
    Sighing…
    “Got a minnit, Kent?”
    “Yeah….” We stepped off over towards the fishing poles.
    He looked at me….pulled out three cee notes…said…..”Sometimes everyone needs an act of random kindness…I remember you supporting me emotionally when I lost my job, even bought me beer and a lunch. I’m doin’ pretty well right now….these are yours on the condition you buy that gun. For you, not me, I already have one. And yes, they are nice guns. But you pay the for the tax and paperwork.”
    A man I hadn’t seen in twenty years……….
    I shook his hand, thanking him profusely.
    “Pass it on”, was all he said, “No doubt you already have…”
    He stood quietly, watched as I filled out the paperwork and paid for my gun.
    Then he was gone…..I didn’t even see him leave.
    But I will never forget him………….
    And on the seventh of July I retrieve my brand new, Mossie 500A………
    I truly don’t know what to say….he wouldn’t let me just keep the cash, and in a very real sense I am grateful for that.
    Although I did have to cough up sixty bucks of my own………
    I will send a picture in ten days……….when I take her home.
    And the wonders continue…..even now…….

    Rurik,

    I know Mope.

    Love him like a brother.

    He’d take you to the Pollack joint and buy you lunch.

    He’d loan you the Chick Magnet at a moment’s notice.

    He’d take you in and give you a place to sleep.

    But if you put one finger on the last Sam Adams, he’d blow your friggin’ head off.

    Everyone has his limits.

    BTW, Can I write this off on my 1040?
