It's no coincidence that the second amendment follows the first in our constition. The MSM has found that a piece of paper doesn't defend liberty or freedom of speech. It's the willingness to 'go to the mattresses'. It is the things worth (dying) killing for that make life worth living. It's such a poverty of values that the MSM can only ridicule those it knows won't fight back.


Yo Mikey, the expression is "take it to the mat" as in the wrestling mat. NOT the mattress. Saying you're willing to take it to the mattress = saying you'll have sex with it. Which is pretty damn funny when you think about it, but then if you think about it some more it just stops making any sense at all, so don't think about it too much, but just enough.


If I recall my Godfather, Part One correctly, the Corleone family "goes to the mattresses" in the war with the Tattalias.

It's a reference to buying a bunch of second hand mattresses for your soldiers to sleep on during a war.


Never saw the Godfather, but I'll take your word for it. But it doesn't make sense to me 00 why not get new mattresses for your soldiers? And why focus on their sleeping, when they should be out there kicking ass? Italians.... sheesh!

Seen at low tide

  • American White Pelican
    Saw 30 in one flock on a weptember evening while fishing
  • Hummingbird
    Finally, my first hummingbirds. Saw them on a fire bush in Crystal Beach, FL. My rental's neighbor's yard is all xeriscaped, which is ugly to me but just fine with the little hummers. At first, I thought they were the biggest hornets I'd ever seen.
  • Flamingo!
    One of these dudes flew right over my house. I couldn't believe it. And please don't tell me it was a roseated spoonbill because it was a frickin' flamingo, dude! Huge and pink and right there above me. I was like so freaking out, you know?
  • Falcon!
    Don't see these guys too often. Wish we did. Bet the morning doves don't.
  • Black Skimmer
    These beauties are getting scarce, but one flew by yesterday at low tide on the hunt for minnows.
  • Dead sea turtle
    cool, but smelly
  • Reddish Egret
    These have been hanging out around the pool quite a bit lately. Must be a new group of adolesent birds -- the youngsters like to hunt where the water is clear, and it takes them a day to figure out there are not now and never will be fish in the swimming pool no matter how clear the water.
  • Sand Piper
  • Brown Pelican
    I saw a flock of about 200 of these at Disappearing Island yesterday, just south of Anclote Island on the west coast of FL. Good to see such a large flock.
  • Wood Pecker
    They've developed a sudden interest in the orange tree, which just went into bloom.
