St. Louis Tea Party Draws A Thousand To Protest The Messiah's Giveaways

ST. LOUIS — "Critics of President Barack Obama's stimulus plan gathered beneath the Arch Friday to cheer speeches over a bullhorn and toss tea into the Mississippi River.

A few conservative activists organized and promoted the rally, with help from talk-radio hosts. Pleased with the turnout in 35-degree bluster, leaders said they had stolen a page from liberal tradition by taking to the streets with homemade signs."

Can any of you recall the last time a newspaper article referred to "a few liberal activists" when describing the organizers of such an event?

Well I went and looked it up. And it was circa 2000 B.C., that's when.

"If I had known this many people would show up, I'd have charged admission," said Bill Hennessy of Ballwin, the lead organizer. "We'll do this every chance we get until Congress repeals the pork — or we retire them from public life."

Hennessy estimated that more than 1,000 people showed up. There was no official count, but the crowd spilled across roughly one-fourth of the grand staircase from the Arch to Leonor K. Sullivan Boulevard. Former state Sen. John Loudon, R-Chesterfield, said, "We conservatives are usually pretty pathetic at making crowds. But this one's good."

Conservatives ARE pathetic when it comes to these goings on, because Conservatives have these weird things to otherwise occupy their time. They are called...and all you non-Conservatives should write this down: Jobs. Family. A real life. Things most liberals have only read about.

The Jurassic Press Fossilizes Yet Another Newsrag

Rocky Mountain News to close

"The Rocky Mountain News publishes its last paper tomorrow.

Rich Boehne, chief executive officer of Rocky-owner Scripps, broke the news to the staff at noon today, ending nearly three months of speculation over the paper's future.

"People are in grief," Editor John Temple said at a news conference later.

Boehne told staffers that the Rocky was the victim of a terrible economy and an upheaval in the newspaper industry.

"Denver can't support two newspapers any longer," Boehne told staffers, some of whom cried at the news. "It's certainly not good news for you, and it's certainly not good news for Denver."

So let's take a closer look, shall we...

Helluva lot more people these days, and a heckuva lot less newspapers. Sure, I'm aware that Colorado is drowning in transplanted California lefties and since they bitch the most about the most it's natural for a basically ultra-liberal business such as a daily paper to attempt to cater to likeminded folks. That's what killed, and continues to dismember liberal talk radio.

Years ago, those with horrid speaking voices such as Laura Ingraham couldn't buy their way into radio, but today such nostril-nobodies nasal their deviated septums all across America as Conservatives search for ANY port in the liberal Yellowstream Media storm. The news and editorial occupation is booming for some, while the Jurassic Press that is the newspaper business sinks ever lower into the tar pits of history. Not that ALL hardcopied rags will go the way of the Dodo, far from it.

People will ALWAYS need lining for their birdcages.

Ann Coulter Watches As Obo Genuflects To The Teachers...

...And like every other sane person alive, wonders why...

"...It turns out that being in U.S. public schools has the same effect on people as hanging around Paris Hilton does.

In fourth grade, the earliest grade for which international comparisons are available, American students outperform most other countries in reading, math and science. Fourth-graders score in the 92nd percentile in science, the 58th percentile in math and the 70th percentile in reading, where they beat 26 of 35 countries, including Germany, France and Italy.

But by the eighth grade, American students are only midrange in international comparisons. (On the plus side, by the eighth grade they're noticeably fatter.)

By the 12th grade -- after receiving the full benefits of an American education -- Americans are near the bottom. Let X represent the number of years spent in U.S. public schools, and Y represent average test scores in math and reading -- oh, never mind.

With an additional eight years of a public school education under their belts, Americans fall from the 92nd percentile in science to the 29th percentile. While American fourth-graders are bested only by South Korea and Japan in science, by 12th grade, the only countries the American students can beat are Lithuania, Cyprus and South Africa.

Which suggests that if public education were extended all the way through college, by the time a student gets to graduate school he might very well be qualified to be ... speaker of the house!"

Yep. It's a fact. The longer public school teachers spend with our children the dumber the kids get. According to the lefty bible this means they deserve raise after raise, because were the students to graduate with anything resembling a brain they'd NEVER vote Democrat.

"Off-duty cop's pistol accidentally fires at gun show, injuring retired officer"

"A retired St. Paul police officer was wounded Saturday when a pistol belonging to an off-duty Minneapolis police officer accidentally discharged at a gun show.

Both men were working security at the Minneapolis Gun Show at the Minneapolis Convention Center when the accident happened about 1:15 p.m., said Minneapolis police spokesman Sgt. Jesse Garcia.

The semi-automatic pistol went off when the holster got caught on a chair that the Minneapolis officer was either leaning back on or getting off of, Garcia said.

One bullet hit the floor and fragmented pieces struck the retired officer in the leg and hand, Garcia said. He was treated for a small wound and released Saturday.

A bullet fragment also grazed the Minneapolis police officer's pant leg. The officer, who has been on the force for more than 20 years, was not injured.

Garcia called the incident a "freak accident."

"You could probably sit in the chair 10,000 times and it will never happen again," he said.

The retired officer was working for a private security firm hired by the gun show, while the off-duty officer was hired by the convention center, Garcia said. Both men were near a check-in table that was set up to make sure guns were inoperable, he said"

Here you see is the perfect example of the illogical idea that the police are safer than the average gun owner, and they and only they should be in charge of seeing to it that an idiot or two or three doesn't shoot up the place because he might very well be as negligent as the average cop.

The Catch-22 to end all Catch-22's.

Cops are less law abiding than the non cops who carry guns on a regular basis. They drink and drive, initiate domestic violence, and even commit suicide more often than their "civilian" counterparts. And yes, they also negligently discharge their firearms at an alarming rate.

Once again for luck: Guns do not go off by themselves. Guns that fire unintended are the result of operator negligence. And society in general would be a lot safer if cops were treated like regular people and expected to obey the law.

The Swimmer Reported Ready To Hand Senate Seat To Wife...

Kennedy Might Not Return

Ailing Sen. Ted Kennedy may not return to the Senate, and speculation is brewing that the veteran Democratic lawmaker is setting up his wife, Vicki, to succeed him, according to a report Friday in the Boston Herald.

The article quoted friends of the family who said the Massachusetts senator's brain cancer has worsened and that he is resting at an undisclosed location in Florida.

Anthony Coley, a Kennedy family spokesman, disputed the Herald's report, telling FOX News that Sen. Kennedy is not on his death bed and continues to recover in warmer climates when not traveling back to Washington for Senate business.

"Normally I wouldn't just dive in with a retort to such reports," Coley added, "but the media is awash with these stories and I'm here to tell you that they're all wet. To be honest I really don't know precisely what it is they're driving at, but what I can tell you is that the Senator's rehab is coming along quite swimmingly. So before we all get in way over our heads it's past time to take a deep breath and let these rumors rest in peace."

Oklahoma City PD Admits Mistake in Pulling Over Man With Anti-Obama Sign

"The Oklahoma City Police Department admits one of its officers made a mistake in pulling over a man last week for carrying an anti-President Obama sign in his car.

According to The Oklahoman newspaper, an officer pulled over Chip Harrison last week because he had in his car a sign that said, "Abort Obama, not the unborn."

The officer confiscated the sign and handed Harrison a slip telling him he was under investigation, even though Harrison argued that the sign only meant he wanted Obama removed from office.

The officer thought Harrison was threatening to kill the president, according to the article. But the department later explained that the officer misinterpreted the sign.

That didn't stop Harrison from getting a visit from the Secret Service. They interviewed him at his house and determined he was not a threat to the president, according to the report."

Whew, doggie. The hired help just gets more uppity every day now don't they? I'm taking this with a grain of salt, otherwise I'd be frothing at the mouth and handloading some nasty's.

Bills Running Back Cops To 3 Gun Misdemeanors

CULVER CITY, Calif. (AP) - Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch has been charged with three gun-related misdemeanors after his arrest last week in Culver City.

Police Detective Ryan Thompson says Lynch was charged Thursday in Los Angeles Superior Court with possessing a concealed, loaded and unregistered firearm.

Lynch was arrested on Feb. 11 after police smelled marijuana coming from a parked car that Lynch occupied with two other men. Officers searched the vehicle and found a loaded pistol and four marijuana cigarettes. They did not book any of the men for any drug offenses.

Lynch's attorney, Gerald Schwartzbach, says he is pleased his client faces misdemeanors instead of felonies and feels the lesser charges are appropriate for the situation."

Yessiree Bob, 3 charges no less. Concealed, loaded and worst of all, unregistered. I'm all in favor of lawyering up and copping to a misdemeanor, particularly since its obvious that Mr. Lynch wasn't going to make this a test case regarding 2nd Amendment rights. I'll refrain from asking just how the fuck dumb one must BE to be smoking grass while "illegally" packing. In California.

And its got Al Sharpton in full frontal outrage.

Obama, Dead Chimp Link?

Hey Al...if the shoe fits...

So Don't Toss That Old Lorcin...

NEW YORK - "Police and prosecutors say Queens is poised to hold the borough's first gun buyback program, set for six churches this weekend.

Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday, anyone can anonymously trade a working legal or illegal handgun, rifle or shotgun for a$200 bank card, no questions asked.

The cards can be used as debit cards or to withdraw money at ATMs. People will be paid for up to three guns. A working BB gun or air pistol can be exchanged for a $20 bank card.

The six drop-off locations are: Macedonia Baptist Church, First Baptist Church, Praise Tabernacle, Evangel Temple, Majority BaptistChurch (sic) and Presbyterian Baptist Church.

Authorities have bought thousands of guns at recent buyback (sic)

Queens is poised to hold its first buyback. Thousands of guns have been bought at recent buybacks.

So which is it?

Anyway, this'd be a good time to burgle as many apartments as possible before the weekend. Gather together some homies and each can walk away with up to $600 from whatever pieces of crap your gang can beg, borrow or steal. And don't worry about the "working gun" caveat. Not like the cops are going to set up shooting ranges complete with every caliber of ammunition, and this is also a chance to make a killing on those replica's that barely even look like a real gun.

Win-win. The commies get to feel like they've done something for the cause, cops all over Queens get some serious overtime, you make out like a bandit, and all at the taxpayers expense.

And not for nothing, but since anti-gun types are forever screaming about things like "THE GUN SHOW LOOPHOLE" know, that's where private owners buy and sell personal property between one another... what Queens and other dirty places do with these give-backs is offering payment to transfer ownership of a firearm WITHOUT background checks, etc, when will the Brady creatures begin calling this...


Where REAL criminals are absolved of their dastardly deeds just because the cops and robbers (politicians) say so.

NRA News: Court Of Appeals Rules Employees May Store Firearms In Cars

The brouhaha isn't going away anytime soon but at least we've won the last few rounds...

From an NRA emailing:

Fairfax, Va. – "Today, a three-judge panel of the U.S. Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled unanimously in support of allowing employees to store legally owned firearms in locked, private motor vehicles while parked in employer parking lots. This decision upholds NRA-backed legislation passed in 2004.

“This is a victory for the millions of American workers who have been denied the right to protect themselves while commuting between their homes and their workplace,” said NRA Executive Vice President Wayne LaPierre. “This effort was aimed at skirting the will of the American people, and the intent of legislatures across this country while eviscerating Right-to-Carry laws. This ruling is a slap at the corporate elitists who have no regard for the constitutional rights of law abiding American workers.”

In March 2004, the Oklahoma legislature passed an amendment holding employers criminally liable for prohibiting employees from storing firearms in locked vehicles on company property. A number of corporations subsequently filed suit in opposition to the new laws, alleging they were: unconstitutionally vague; an unconstitutional taking of private property; and preempted by various federal statutes. The lower court ruled in favor of the injunction.

“This issue was contrived by the gun control lobby who goaded corporations into doing their dirty work for them,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA chief lobbyist. “However, this ruling is a vindication for every hardworking and lawful man and woman whose basic right to self-defense was taken away on a whim by corporate lawyers. NRA is prepared to defend this right and to ensure the safety of every American worker.”

In October 2008, Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry and Attorney General Drew Edmondson appealed to the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals the lower court decision to strike down the NRA-backed worker protection laws. Today’s proceedings handed down by Circuit Judges Paul J. Kelly, Bobby R. Baldock, and Michael W. McConnell reversed the lower court’s grant of a permanent injunction.

Rust never sleeps and neither does Mrs. Brady and her cast of thousands. And lets face it, there's really only one legitimate gun lobby force in America and that's the NRA. In the interest of full disclosure (like anyone gives a shit) I've let my NRA membership lapse, chiefly because they just don't represent my views often enough. But when they do fight for something as near and dear to my heart like being "allowed" to protect myself from the animals I encounter while to and from the yard where I pick up the bus to take my seniors shopping, credit given where credit is due.

Several months ago, two miscreants somehow thought it a good idea to make an illegal withdrawal from the Bank of Fits. It's something I've not spoken of, but something people should think about.

For most of my adult life, no one in their right mind has decided that fighting me for money and/or belongings was an occupation with a bright future, but the gist of all this is the irrefutable fact that NO ONE knows for sure what the criminal mind is thinking and where such thoughts will take them. Look, they make poor decisions all the time, duh, so the "it can't happen here" line of bullshit is just that, self-induced blindness in the face of reality. Luckily, my middle name is paranoia; I saw them coming a mile away and was ready when they made a move. Being a helluva lot bigger and stronger helped, but ANYONE will go down from a well placed sucker punch, and no, I didn't have to draw down but would have if an escalation of force was necessary.

Fact of the matter is, that choice should be mine and mine alone. Two punks could just as easily have been half a dozen and most of the people reading this heartily agree that running around in circles while trying to dial 911 is precisely the WRONG thing to do when the shit hits the fan.

Men and women of good will the world over have the right to self defense no matter where they are, and "letting" them carry to and from work isn't just a good idea, it's the only idea. Be aware, stay aware, and fight the gun grabbers wherever and whomever they might be. Sarah Brady is no better than Tyrone Jackhandle. He wants whats yours and she wants you to give it to him.

Yeah right.

Investors Giving Barry The Thumbs-Down

"...In a recent note to its clients, Strategas Research Group underscored Wall Street's anxiety over the massive spending and borrowing that many believe will crowd out private investment with high interest rates - all without doing much to boost the economy. It observed that the then-$820 billion in planned spending could've bought nearly 4 million homes at $200,000 a pop, or nearly 29 million cars at an average price of about $28,000 - or gone to send every American a check for nearly $2,700.

Or, Strategas said, the federal government could simply extend its growing reach into the formerly free-market system and "buy the 10 most valuable sports franchises in the world, and still have $806 billion left over."

To be sure, professional investors have always been skeptical about Obama's economic theories."

A Ponzi scheme "works" as long as there's new money coming in to pay off the old investors. This has forever been the democrat way to run a country; stay a step ahead of the bill collectors and ask future generations to pay for today's largess. But a funny thing happened on the way to the teller's window. The dems are creating more and more welfare cases and that means less and less folks to keep the bunko racket afloat.

But guess what? There's still places left from which to steal money from, and if Mr. Obo runs true to form he'll begin leeching funds from the military, just like all good liberals do.

A weak economy, an impotent military. Sound familiar? It should, because that describes Europe to a T. The one-world-order is alive and well and instead of being headquartered in Paris and London and Rome, will be run from Pennsylvania Avenue by an experienced organizer who knows damned well how to cook the books.

Change. Oh we'll see plenty of change alright. Fasten the seat belts kids this is gonna be one helluva ride.

Examiner: Muslim cleric explains wife beating

"Egyptian Cleric Galal Al-Khatib gave a “sermon” which aired on Al-Rahma TV on December 24, 2008."

"One of the husband's rights is to discipline his wife if she is disobedient. What does the word 'disobedience' mean? Disobedience is to leave the house without the husband's permission, to refuse to obey the husband in bed, to speak to the husband impolitely, or to do the opposite of what he likes. All these are forms of disobedience.

"Religious law has instated several measures of disciplining a disobedient wife. These measures must be followed consecutively. You cannot jump to the third measure before despairing of the second, and you cannot jump to the second before despairing of the first. The order must be followed.

"The first measure for reforming a disobedient wife is to admonish her. The husband should talk to her gently, reminding her of God, and reminding her that if she wants to enter Paradise, she must obey him. He must tell her that by pleasing her husband, she pleases God, and that his rights supersede the rights of her parents."

Please be so kind as to click the headline link and read the whole thing. As for me, a simple person, I'd want a mere 5 minutes with any man who'd follow the above tenets.

Thanks to The War on Guns for the link.

Monkey Business For A Slow News Tuesday

Difficult to determine which is the bigger headline this day; yet another Obama appointee being outed as a crook:

"NEWS broke last week that Rahm Emanuel, now White House chief of staff, lived rent- free for years in the home of Rep. Rosa De Lauro (D-Conn.) - and failed to disclose the gift, as congressional ethics rules mandate. But this is only the tip of Emanuel's previously undislosed (sic) ethics problems."

Or the chimp that ran amok in Connecticut and was...but of course...shot by another in the long line of cops who've declared open-season on anything that might inflict even the hint of a serious boo-boo.

Two tales of monkey business reported upon by the Jurassic Press in a manner calculated to protect the guilty; Emanuel is just getting paid back for all of the crooked schemes he ran to cheat the American people out of their very birthrights, and the police who seemingly cannot employ even the most basic semblance of tact, courtesy or discretion, are given a pass because without them, liberals would actually have to learn how to man-up.

Nude Man Dies After Being Tasered by L.A. Sheriff's Deputies

LOS ANGELES — "A man running naked in the street died after he was shocked with a stun gun by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies.

Deputies answering a disturbance call in suburban Lakewood at about 10:15 p.m. Saturday saw a man running naked in the street and acting irate, Deputy Keith Ho said. They tried to calm the man but he remained belligerent. When he advanced toward the deputies, Ho said they hit him with pepper spray and a taser electric stun gun.

Ho said after the man was handcuffed, deputies realized he wasn't breathing. They began CPR and paramedics were called but the man was pronounced dead at a hospital."

There was a time when cops would throw a blanket over some naked loony bird then toss him in the back of a cruiser. Nowadays they just don't seem to have a plan beyond spray and zap, but at least the guy wasn't sexually assaulted with a billy club. Maybe the guy wasn't sexually assaulted with a billy club.

Bills RB Lynch arrested on California gun charge

CULVER CITY, Calif. (AP) - "Buffalo Bills running back Marshawn Lynch was arrested in Southern California on a weapons charge, police said Sunday.

Police said Lynch was arrested Wednesday night after officers approached him and two other men sitting in a 2006 Mercedes-Benz in this Los Angeles suburb and found a loaded firearm.

Lynch was arrested after officers determined the gun belonged to him. He was released that night on $35,000 bail.

Culver City police did not immediately return a phone message seeking information about why officers approached Lynch and his companions."

There is of course more to this than the police are admitting to. Since there wasn't a traffic accident for them to "investigate", dollars to donuts they found something, illegal parking, loud music, expired tags, any reason to check out what black men were doing in a Mercedes. The Constitution is null and void in much of California, so Lynch should have known that and been on his best behavior if he actually wished to exercise an inalienable right.

Dumbass. He actually fell for that "all men are created equal" bullshit and thought himself to be free. The good news is he has the resources to fight this, but the bad news is the Yellowstream Media will go along with the traitorous scum who swore to uphold the law of the land then disregarded it so as to be more equal than mere civilians.

Another Peaceful Moslem Takes Exception To A Woman Still Wearing Her Head

"An (NY) upstate TV exec who set up a channel promoting Muslims as peace-loving people was stressed about his failing business in the days before he allegedly chopped off his estranged wife's head, a friend of the couple said today.

An order of protection barring Muzzammil Hassan, 44, from the couple's upstate home had been taken out by his wife, Aasiya, 37, less than a week before she died.

The couple was in the process of divorcing after bouts of domestic violence, her lawyer told the Buffalo News.

Hassan, who founded Bridges TV in 2004 to counter anti-Islam stereotypes following 9/11, turned himself in to cops Thursday in the Buffalo suburb of Orchard Park. Police later found his beheaded wife in the TV studios."

#1) She should'a had a firearm for protection and shot the bastard dead in his tracks.

#2) Peaceful this, peace-loving that, it's all the same. When stressed we revert back to our upbringing. Killing her wasn't enough, hells no. This cultist, and make no mistake, islam IS a cult, just had to destroy this innocent woman in the crudest, most horrific manner he could think of. Just like Daddy taught him.

I've told him he needs to switch to something with a bright-orange blade but he doesn't listen.

Open-Carry...Use It Or Lose It

The oldtimers here tell me that back when Florida was an open-carry state, one of the ways the law-enforcement-backed anti's convinced the local yokelry to forget about packing iron in the light of day was to remind them how most law abiding Christian folks aren't as rude as all that, and besides, it's the damn visiting yankees that bitch and moan about prancin' about in front of God and everyone sporting a hog leg.

The "We Don't Use It Anymore's So Why Not Give It Up" defense against open carry. The "Haven't We Gone Far Beyond The Need To Play Cowboy" line of reasoning that swayed many a Fudd into believing that covering up one's gat was merely a polite way of showing everyone just how downright civilized we all were, and besides, all a man really needs anyway is a good rifle or shotgun and nobody will EVER think of taking those away.

We all nearly bled to death from those never ending little cuts that at the time didn't seem all that important to far too many of us. And now face the uphill battle to retrieve what was once recognized as a universal, inalienable right, because if there's one thing besides our money that the government wants, it is total power over us in virtually every way. Hard for a Sheriff to push for his very own SWAT team and black helicopter and scazillion dollar state of the art live-fire mansion when the citizenry is handling things just fine thank you very much.

But fight we do, even if I'm forced to admit that getting open-carry back in Florida is looking lately like a pipe dream. Others have had better luck (I know, luck has nothing to do with it but don't get me started) and one place you can learn about them is at Open Carry dot Org.

This way, when the peaceaholics like the one in the accompanying pic arrive in your burg, you'll be forewarned and ready to laugh 'em out of town.

"It's bad enough when illiterate jurors issue damages awards in the billions of dollars because they don't grasp the difference between a million and a billion. Now it turns out the Democrats don't know the difference between a million and a trillion.

Why not make the "stimulus bill" a kazillion dollars?

All Americans who work for a living, or who plan to work for a living sometime in the next century, are about to be stuck with a trillion-dollar bill to fund yet more oppressive government bureaucracies. Or as I call it, a trillion dollars and change.

The stimulus bill isn't as bad as we had expected -- it's much worse. Instead of merely creating useless, make-work jobs digging ditches -- or "shovel-ready," in the Democrats' felicitous phrase -- the "stimulus" bill will create an endless army of government bureaucrats aggressively intervening in our lives. Instead of digging ditches, American taxpayers will be digging our own graves.

There are hundreds of examples in the 800-page "stimulus" bill, but here are just two.

First, the welfare bureaucrats are coming back.

For half a century, the welfare establishment had the bright idea to pay women to have children out of wedlock. Following the iron laws of economics -- subsidize something, you get more of it; tax it, you get less of it -- the number of children being born out of wedlock skyrocketed.

The 1996 Welfare Reform bill marked the first time any government entitlement had ever been rolled back. Despite liberal howling and foot-stomping, not subsidizing illegitimacy led, like night into day, to less illegitimacy.

Welfare recipients got jobs, as the hard-core unemployables were coaxed away from their TV sets and into the workforce. For the first time in decades, the ever-increasing illegitimacy rate stopped spiraling upward.

As proof that that welfare reform was a smashing success, a few years later, Bill Clinton started claiming full credit for the bill.

Well, that's over. The stimulus bill goes a long way toward repealing the work requirement of the 1996 Republican Welfare Reform bill and rewards states that increase their welfare caseloads by paying unwed mothers to sit home doing nothing.

Second, bureaucrats at Health and Human Services will electronically collect every citizen's complete medical records and determine appropriate medical care.

HHS bureaucrats will soon be empowered to overrule your doctor. Doctors who don't comply with the government's treatment protocols will be fined. That's right: Instead of your treatment being determined by your doctor, it will be settled on by some narcoleptic half-wit in Washington who couldn't get a job in the private sector.

And a brand-new set of bureaucrats in the newly created office of "National Coordinator of Health Information Technology" will be empowered to cut off treatments that merely prolong life. Sorry, Mom and Pop, Big Brother said it's time to go.

At every other workplace in the nation -- even Wal-Mart! -- workers are being laid off. But no one at any of the bloated government bureaucracies ever need fear receiving a pink slip. All 64,750 employees at the department of Health and Human Services are apparently absolutely crucial to the smooth functioning of the department."

It's Ann's job to turn gloom into doom. Hell, the handwriting was on the wall regarding Mr. Know-Nothing, Do-Nothing, plain as day for all to see. but enough braindead vegetative masses of wasted tissue believed that someone without portfolio could actually handle one helluva tough job.

So what's a gal to do but try and pound some sense into the electorate, and Ann does a pretty damn good job of it. There are those among us who believe America to be far stronger and tougher than Ann gives it credit for, who believe that elections are cyclical and yep, certifiable idiots DO take up residence in the Oval Office now and again.

We survived Jimmy Carter. Bill and Hillary Clinton for chrissake. Four years of Barry the Blowhard will reintroduce enough folks to reality, begging for a return to planet earth. Sure, the rebuilding will be a bitch, but that's what America is all about. Facing seemingly insurmountable odds and weathering one bitch of a storm. Facing community organizers who believe the Presidency to be an entry-level position, and somehow, some way, getting enough people to actually vote for them. Too many of our fellow Americans are dumb and lazy and looking for a handout, but we still outnumber them.

The real America will be back, and remember; that what does not kill us makes us stronger.

Even if Barack Obama did fuck everything to absolute shit.

So Ya Say The Witch Left You? Can't Fide Hide Nor Hair Of Her, But Boy Oh Boy When You Do...

Have no fear!

If she lives in East Tennessee and did the smart thing and got a permit to carry a firearm, then the Memphis Commercial Appeal has done and listed her address for ya!

Then Shots Across The Bow found the addresses of the hierarchy of this rag and published it on his blog.

Then Assistant Managing Editor, Louis Graham replied that the addresses have been "removed from the database" after Uncle raised hell.

Then I found out all about it over at Ride.

Poland to 'Punish' Taliban Who Beheaded Polish Engineer

"Poland pledges to capture and "punish" the Taliban militants who beheaded a Polish engineer in Pakistan on Friday before delivering a video of the attack to the media, the Times of London reports.

Piotr Stanczak was reportedly kidnapped four months ago while working in the Attock district — a region close to Pakistan's lawless North West Frontier Province.

A video released to media outlets Sunday shows the beheading of Stanczak just minutes after he appears on tape urging the Polish government not to send troops to neighboring Afghanistan."

Now wait just a dad-gumbed minute...

I thought all this beheading stuff was going to be a thing of the past once Barry straightened those moslems out?

And wasn't it just last week he was on Al-Jezeera TV telling Mo's dirty kids to play nice while at the same time assuring the civilized world that it has nothing to fear from islam?

Expecting me to believe that Poland has engineers is one thing. But Barry-Boy ran on the platform of speak softly and carry a big shtick and if that really isn't going to work then we need a do-over.

Oh yeah and before I forget...

Nuke these fuckers back to the protoplasm age.

The B-Team Has Met The Enemy And Decided That WE Are Easier To Take Down

"IMAGINE a terrorist setting off a bomb in your home, killing 17 friends and family members. Two years later, you learn authorities have caught the mastermind of the attack, who's confessed not only to bombing your house but other acts of terrorism.

Then, six years later, you hear that the charges against the killer have been dropped and that he might go free - while those who arrested and questioned him may face congressional investigation and even jail time.

If you can get your mind around this nightmare, then you can appreciate the feelings of retired US Navy Cmdr. Kirk Lippold, former skipper of the destroyer USS Cole.

On Oct. 12, 2000, terrorists set off a bomb alongside the Cole as it was peacefully moored in the port of Aden. The blast killed 17 members of Lippold's command and wounded nearly 40 others.

On Thursday, proceedings against the bombing's mastermind, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, were suspended and the charges against him dropped, thanks to President Obama's executive order putting on hold all military tribunals for terror suspects. The charges may be reinstated later, depending on the results of the administration's review of these issues. Where that review is leading is unclear - and al-Nashiri's release, despite his confessed guilt, becomes a real possibility"

Couple weeks in office and already the place is a shambles. That's what happens when amateurs and the blame-America-first crowd gets even a hint of real power.

North Korea is giving Iran the capability to hit not only hit Israel, but our own Left Coast, the economic news gets worse each and every day, and Mr. Small Change's answer is to spend a trillion dollars erecting rainbow-themed latte stands on every street corner that give away tickets to a free abortion along with every double mocha.

We needed someone
tougher than Bush and what we got was let-'em-go-Obo who wants to close Gitmo and send the killers here so that they can have celebrity chef's stop by more often....or...flat-out hand them first class tickets to the paradise of their choice because Holder, the true face of injustice if there ever was one, will be far too busy prosecuting the intelligence guys who helped keep the country safe since 9/11. That's when he finds some free time away from ridding the country of most of the Bill of Rights.

Not that I'm hoping for a terrorist attack on the most hated state in the Union, but maybe, just maybe, stopping a group of thugs right before they blow up the Golden Gate Bridge might drill some sense into those who voted for this incompetent clown.

So yesterday we went to a wedding...

The lovely couple were joined in matrimony in a small chapel. Until heading there, I was unaware as to where we were heading.

To the campus of the university (Small "u", they don't deserve a big one) of Florida.

Cue spooky music and Cut To:

Fits: Um, but that means I can't carry.

Lisa: Um, yeah, it does.

Fade Out to Fits strapping Ka-Bar to one ankle while hoping that the machete on the other ankle doesn't print too much.

Seriously, but what's a man to do. My CWP "allows" me to carry a frickin sword if I want to, but NO GUNS ALLOWED ON CAMPUS means I'm left to wishin' and hopin' that I can down a crazed killer with a lucky toss of a throwing knife. Sure I brought one. There'll be snowball fights in hell the day I drop to a knee and beg for my wife's life so that means rushing a gun with a blade and who the hell are the people who think this is cool?

Yeah I know. The same one's on their knees begging should the shit hit the fan.

Sheriff Hutchens Continues Her Jihad Against Concealed Carry

"In a mass email to constituents Thursday, Orange County Supervisor Chris Norby accused Sheriff Sandra Hutchens of mounting a “misguided jihad” against people requesting permits from her agency to carry guns.

Norby’s email blast urged law-abiding citizens to attend the next board hearing on Hutchens’ plan to scale back the number of concealed weapons permits. But it was the use of the term “jihad” to describe the sheriff’s proposal that upped the vitriol in his message."

And yes of course the loons who don't really mind all that much when moslems declare jihad against western interests, are up in arms over the perfectly good use of the word when a sane person employs it in a sentence.

"1869, from Ar., usually translated as "holy war," lit. "struggle, contest, effort," from inf. of jahada "he waged war, he applied himself to." Used for any doctrinal crusade since c.1880."

From the canonization of Saint Barack, to whatever million-loony-march you can think of, modern liberals have at long last found religion, and like most true fanatics are hell bent on lopping off the heads of those disagreeing with their deity.

Thanks to The War on Guns for the link.

On Top Of Being Incompetent, Lazy, And Without Merit, The Fool Is Late

WASHINGTON -- "There's a new time zone in the nation's capital: Obama Time.

Barely two weeks into his presidency, Barack Obama has made a clean break from George W. Bush in several high-profile moves, including reversing a number of the 43rd president's policies.

He's also reversed an unwritten but much-noticed Bush policy: Be on time, all the time.

Obama has been routinely late to events and news conferences, including the ones at which he reversed Bush's orders. This has led to an already familiar refrain from the Obama camp: "He's running late."

The president was 45 minutes late Friday for a ceremony in which he introduced a team of outside economic advisers. He was 10 minutes late Thursday to a memo signing at the Energy Department. He was nearly 30 minutes late Wednesday for the ceremony at which he signed a bill to expand children's health care.

Even before the inauguration, Obama wasn't a punctual sort; he arrived late to a Jan. 8 news conference on the economy that was aired live by broadcast and cable networks.

When it comes to following the clock, Obama closely resembles Bill Clinton, who was famously late to events when he was president. By contrast, Bush despised being late and was punctual to a fault. He set the tone early in his presidency -- he arrived at the Capitol five minutes early for his inauguration.

"To me, being tardy, it's got to be one of two things," said presidential historian Doug Wead, who advised both Bush and his father, George H.W. Bush. "Bad organization that can be corrected, or it's arrogance. It sounds to me like this is arrogance."

Then of course there are the apologists:

"Mark Lindsay, a Democratic consultant and former senior White House adviser to Bill Clinton, disagreed, explaining that Clinton was late sometimes because he was making accommodations for logistics or average citizens.

"I would make the opposite observation," Lindsay said. "I would say that taking time to accommodate your schedule to regular citizens is not an act of arrogance. It's an act of humility."

As if there's ANY reason for a grownup to be forever tardy. Oh so often I've made mention of attention to detail. Professionals have it, successful ones at least, and it bespeaks volumes of goodness about a man who is punctual and refuses to the case of a President...the world wait.

OBummers handlers can hardly help it, though, as they're special people surrounding a special man, so how dare the little folk bitch about waiting to bask in his presence.

M...I...C......KEY...Why? Because We LIKE YOU....LOTS

I snitched this from Cookie's, but even after quite some time of full frontal Google-ing, couldn't find an accompanying story anywhere on the net.

Seems that both ladies were banned from Mickey's house for life, but for my money, the old rodent never looked so good.

Well. At least in the middle.

Waaaaaaaaa.....I Won!...Waaaaaaaaaaa

"The president should read the transcript of the third presidential debate. He claimed his program represented "a net spending cut." He called himself "a strong proponent of pay-as-you-go. Every dollar that I've proposed, I've proposed an additional cut so that it matches." He added, "We need to eliminate a whole host of programs that don't work."

Now, no president can adhere to every jot and tittle from his campaign, but the "I won" argument only works if the campaign program matches the governing program.

Obama himself seems confused on what exactly "I won" means. In a meeting with Republicans, he brandished "I won" as a defense of his version of tax relief. But he later used "I won" to push back against an excessive reliance on tax cuts, claiming that it had been repudiated during the campaign even though he talked every day on the trail of cutting taxes for "95 percent of working people" and never once mentioned a commitment to extreme deficit spending.

Obama has to make a case for the bill on the merits, a surpassingly difficult forensic task. In a Washington Post op-ed, Obama called for "swift, bold and wise" action, but it's possible to have at most two of those things at once. The current legislation is swift and bold (indeed, shameless) but not remotely wise.

The bill came out of the House with a price tag of $819 billion. It would spend more in 2011 alone than in this year, and more in 2012 and beyond than in this year. Why far-off spending priorities have to be set in a rush now is something no one can explain - except that congressional Democrats want to toss bulging sacks of cash out the door.

Obama writes that the bill "is more than a prescription for short-term spending - it's a strategy for America's long-term growth and opportunity." Fine. A long-term strategy deserves long-term deliberation, the hearings and other processes meant to exercise a check on legislating in a panic."

Oh for heavens sake, enough, already.

The most liberal Senator in all the world...wait a minute while I check on Rome's Kato The Spender, he might have been as socialist as OhBummer is...gets elected by lying to the good folks who own America, and people are behaving, Conservative-minded people no less, as if this is a shock, shock I say.

We were so disgusted with his charade that many staunch and true patriots actually voted for McCain fer chrissake. There, that says it all. Time to call a spade a spade and stop making believe that the guy is smart and really really trying. Because all he's trying to do is make us as bankrupt as Europe just so they stop hating us.

Oh-Bummer Getting More And More Bitchy, Isn't He

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama fired the sharpest warning of his young presidency at Republicans who are mustered against his$ 900-billion stimulus plan for the plunging economy.

Obama has sought to build bipartisan support for his massive dose of tax cuts and infrastructure spending designed to waken dormant consumption and create between 3 million and 4 million jobs.

But he showed the first sign of impatience Wednesday, bringing up twice what Democrats say are discredited economic policies of president George W. Bush, which they contend helped cause the worst economic crisis since the 1930s.

"In the past two days, I have heard criticisms of this plan that, frankly, echo the very same failed theories that helped lead us into this crisis in the first place," Obama said, before signing a children's health insurance bill.

He took aim at the "notion that tax cuts alone will solve all our problems" and warned against the idea that the economic crisis could be tackled with "half steps, and piecemeal measures and tinkering around the edges."

Obama also faulted unnamed opponents he said believe "that we can ignore the fundamental challenges like the high cost of healthcare and still expect our economy and country to thrive."

"I reject these theories, and by the way so did the American people when they went to the polls in November and voted resoundingly for change," the president said, in his most edgy partisan language in his two weeks in office."

This is like only the 7 thousand, 4 hundreth and 97th time he or a member of his cabal have stated that the American people really really like paying taxes and financing tons of pork because well golly, they voted for him.

Forget the fact that he RAN on CUTTING TAXES. Yes. Because how the hell is he or ANY bullshitting nobody going to build unisex rest rooms in alla them there parks without TONS of extra cash...

That's okay, bunky. We needed someone like yourself to remind us just how totally frigged liberals can be.

Senate Stimulus: 300,000 Jobs for Illegals? - 1 in 7 New Construction Jobs Could Go to Illegal Immigrants

WASHINGTON, D.C. (February 4, 2008) — "The Senate Stimulus bill currently being considered contains about $104 billion in new government funding for construction projects with the goal of creating jobs for millions of unemployed Americans. Unlike the House version, there is no provision in the bill to bar illegal immigrants from getting these taxpayer-funded jobs. This could result in several hundred thousand illegal immigrants receiving jobs.

* The current version of the Senate Stimulus bill (The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act) contains $104 billion in construction spending, including highways, schools, and public housing.
* Government estimates suggest this spending should create about 2 million new construction jobs.
* Consistent with other research, the Center Immigration Studies has previously estimated that 15 percent of construction workers are illegal immigrants.
* This means that about 300,000 of the construction jobs created by the Senate stimulus could go to illegal aliens (15 percent of 2 million).

The report goes on to add that 15% is a conservative estimate, something anyone with eyes can see for his or her self, particularly in the spanish speaking enclaves we used to call *States*. The stimulus bill becomes law, then guess what...

Many, many, MANY more of them cross the border. In a few years they've then become so entrenched that extricating them will be impossible, and by 2012 even exclusive 5 star restaurants, classy hotels, and most businesses even in friggin' Maine fer chrissake will be staffed by employees approaching you while asking...

So What ELSE Might Be On Obo's To-Do List...

"A 16-year-old German boy, who has wanted to be a girl since age 2, had a secret sex-change operation last month and may be the world's youngest to do so.

The operation that transformed Tim Petras into Kim Petras was paid for by Germany's government-supported health care system.

The surgery was authorized after psychologists confirmed that Kim Petras was "without doubt a girl in a boy's body."

He had been undergoing hormone therapy since age 12."

Yes indeed. Coming soon to a state near you...California or NY will lead the way, guaranteed...all sorts of "emergency" procedures funded by taxpayer monies. I do believe the Euro's refer to it as universal-scam-care, or some such rot. If Vegas can ask for millions for more neon signs and Austin wants your cash to build Frisbee golf courses, can weenie-chopping alternative lifestyle clinics be far behind?

Nancy Pelosi Says: "Every month, 500 million Americans lose their jobs..."

Subtitled: What is old and wrinkly and dumber than a box of claw hammers?

But wait...

Maybe she counted all 57 states...

Affordable Fighting Knife...

...Thy name is Boker

And here's the Jim Wagner 3 7/8" Reality-Based Blade. From $58-$62 smackeroonies you'd be hard pressed to do much better. They come plain or serrated, in AUS8 or 440C.

Oh, and yeah; gladius-tips are da bomb. The shame of it all is that most knife makers are forced to keep their folder blades under 4" in order to comply with soccer-mom-driven mandates that only liberals would dare to call "laws".

The Day The Music Died

50 years ago today, a Beechcraft Bonanza carrying Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and J. P. The Big Bopper Richardson crashed into a cornfield outside of Clearlake, Iowa, killing all onboard. I still miss listening to all three of them, but in particular Buddy.

"Digna y libre de armas"

"Worthy and free of arms"

Only in Kommifornia. Well not really, but Cali is usually the birthplace of all things anathema to the American way of life.

One of the latest affronts to Freedom is the leftcoast lunatic tizzy over firearms instruction in school.

Anyone believing that California is "savable" is an incurable romantic. Day by day it gets worse, not better, and I for one wouldn't give a rats ass were it not for the fact that such insanity can spread like wildfire.

It is sad, embarrassing, and downright criminal that California remains a state in the union. I would never think of telling anyone where to live, but then don't tell me that there's anything worth giving up one's heart, soul, and balls for.

And enough already with all this referring to California as a gun-rights-Alamo. The Alamo was a battle lost. Other men became so outraged that they banded together then went and killed the folks who stormed those walls. This is today. No one is coming for revenge. Why? There simply aren't enough heroes there to fight for. What, you'd ask us to give up our lives so that even more illegal aliens and alternate lifestylers might have a place to crash?

Besides; no leader worth his salt continues to suffer casualties once a battle is lost. To remain defending the same ground after the enemy has overrun it is an incredibly dumbass waste of lives and resources. And that's the bottom line. The left coast is lost. Comes a time when aiding and abetting the enemy simply because you happen to enjoy the weather isn't just counter-productive, it's downright traitorous.

Taking A Moment To Quietly Reflect On Superbowl Sunday

The BIG game is today and I want to keep all this shit light so it doesn't ruin my mood for watching big fat men slam into other big fat men while steroid-junky speedsters race through the blood and guts to try and run with a pigskin for more yards than the other guy, but what in the frig is really WRONG with the new hired help we gave the keys to the Oval Office to?

Lower corporate taxes so that businesses can hire more people.

Lower the peoples taxes so they can get more money circulating into the system.

One little page or so of instructions should begin to right the shipwreck that the Dems got us into but I guess these parasitic fuckweasels want their pets to be all fat and happy and even make lots more of 'em while they're at it.

But to end on a positive note, they'll screw things up so badly that the country will be ready for a return to SANITY by 2012 and we can send Barack back to the Senate where he can fuck with Ill-Annoy instead of the whole damned planet.

Now if you'll pardon me I've got to get a hold of my bookie before he closes shop.

Nice Puppy

Lisa and I watched several hours of the AKC dog show on Animal Planet last night, and it was hells-a-poppin for me to wait through literally hours of poodle-chihuahua-some-rat-thing making believe it's a dog until they got to the Working Group.

Propitious then for me to find this pic over at Cookies morning madhouse. Won't help a lick and we'll probably get a Corgi but oh well.

(I do so like my dogs as big as they come.)
