February 23, 2013 – Well here I am, over two years into this blog thing spewing my disdain about those moochers, looters, and parasites slithering around among us led by that insipid jerk they put in our White House. But what do I have to show for it all? Just some satisfaction knowing that I haven’t sat around on my capitalist ass complaining without cause or effect. I take comfort in being able to look into my families eyes and saying that I did something positive for their futures. I did everything in my power to try and stop that enemy of the United States from being elected and then re-elected. Like so many others who love America, my money and support went to those who shared my values as a responsible citizen. I have no regrets.
So now I just wait for the storm to blow over, the moochers to realize that there is no free ride, the looters to have no one left to steal from. By the end of Obama’s last term, hopefully the entire country will understand what has happened and what his intentions really were. They will know that we were right all along. There is no free health care for anyone. Jobs are still not there. 2nd amendment rights are being violated. Our freedoms and liberties continue to be infringed upon.
Is there any good news to come from my rantings about those leeches among us? Did anything really positive come from this blog? Well hell yes. I was mentioned in someones book. Today I would like to close by giving thanks to Mr. Geoffrey Nunberg for giving mention of me and my blog in his book titled, “The Ascent of the A-Word: Assholism, the First Sixty Years.”
Apparently my quote in an article of May 9, 2011 caught Nunberg’s eye, “Next time you’re in line waiting behind that welfare moocher, don’t forget to yell out “You’re Welcomed” as they walk away from the register with all that crap you just bought for them. Trust me, the look they will give you is worth it. If your lucky, they’ll smart off at you which will be your invitation to further humiliate their sorry ass. Yea, I know, I’m being insensitive. Cry me a freakin river.”
I am deeply honored to be listed and referenced along with people like Rush Limbaugh, Karl Rove, Newt Gingrich, Hank Williams Jr., and of course the asshole of all assholes, Bill O’Reilly.
Even though I’ve been quoted by the great @Talkmaster, Neal Boortz, in his own “Nealz Nuze,” this mention brings new light and hope for the future of The Roycroft Report and has inspired me to continue to strive for greatness among the ranks of all those other great assholes of the world. I am truly honored.
From my Gonzo journalist hero, the late Hunter S. Thompson, I leave you this quote which still holds true to this very day: “In a nation ruled by swine, all pigs are upwardly mobile—and the rest of us are fucked until we can put our acts together: not necessarily to win, but mainly to keep from losing completely. We owe that to ourselves and our crippled self-image as something better than a nation of panicked sheep.”
So here’s to sticking it in the face of liberals and their candy ass politically correct ideas. -JRoycroft

Katie Pavlich’s new book, “Fast and Furious,” assembles the devastating evidence that implicates the Obama administration for its botched gun-walking operation and ensuing coverup to mislead Congress and the American people.
Few journalists have devoted as much time reporting on Fast and Furious as Pavlich. As the news editor of Townhall, she has asked questions the mainstream media ignored. Now her book pieces the story together for a complete picture of how a government-run operation turned deadly.
She’ll speak on Tuesday at noon ET at The Bloggers Briefing. Breitbart TV, in partnership with The Heritage Foundation, will air it live.
Operation Fast and Furious began in 2009 as an effort to eliminate high-level arms trafficking networks. Guns were allowed to “walk,” and rather than arresting straw purchasers and cartel buyers, hundreds were used to commit crimes in the United States and Mexico. Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry was killed with one in 2010, and an estimated 1,400 guns remain missing.
As previously documented by Breitbart News Network, Pavlich’s book contains new information questioning Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano’s testimony to Congress as well as the media’s efforts to shield the Obama administration from criticism.
The book details President Obama’s lifelong mission to subvert the Second Amendment, long before he was seeking federal office. Pavlich also documents how Fast and Furious plays into his administration’s anti-gun agenda. She cites a Washington Post story from Dec. 15, 2010, before details of Fast and Furious had emerged, in which federal authorities attempt to blame the rise in gun violence on U.S. gun shops.
The Post story referred to Project Gunrunner as an operation to inspect, interdict, and seize guns from straw purchasers. It did not mention an ATF operation to allow straw purchasers to buy guns for the Mexican drug cartels. Some of the very same ATF and Justice Department officials who blamed American gun shops for the spike in Mexican gun crime had in fact been helping the drug cartels to help themselves for over a year.
The book provides information from sources and whistleblowers who offer a behind-the-scenes perspective about the botched operation. One of them, ATF agent John Dodson, was punished for his decision to question why arrests weren’t made before the guns fell into the hands of ruthless criminals in Mexico.
