"...Limbaugh acknowledged he was addicted to pain medicine. He blamed the addiction on severe back pain, and took a five-week leave from his radio show to enter rehab."
Kinda like when the AP, API, NY Times and all the other liberal rags would mention that "Senator Ted Kennedy drunkenly swam from his submerged vehicle while leaving a young woman to drown..." every time they spoke of him.
They NEVER said ANYTHING untoward about old Dickum Then Dunkem. Barney Franks can run a gay brothel from his apartment and a Kennedy could be an out and out murderer but not a durned member of the Jurassic Press would say boo even if they were sucking on Casper's (DELETED).
The Cold Steel Spartan is all that and a box of chips.
Perhaps the strongest locking folder available...the Extreme Ratio RAO doesn't count 'cuz it cheats and adds a quarter-inch thick bolt to keep the blade from closing without the users permission...the Spartan can withstand over 480 pounds of force attempting to defeat the Tri-Ad locking mechanism.
The Kershaw Shallot is a far smaller knife, but has a far stronger steel in CPM S110V as opposed to the Spartan's AUS8.
True, Cold Steel does wonders with AUS 8, tempering it to an HRC rating of 58 or thereabouts, but the Shallots steel can be brought to HRC 66 without much ado and the CPM folks themselves rate it as the steel least likely to corrode and most likely to maintain a keen edge.
I wanted a newer itsy bitsy knife, and also thought to try the much ballyhooed Spartan.

Just one of many fashion show pics available on the web this time of year. And is it any wonder Playboy subscriptions are at an all time low.
Anyways, I chose this particular shot to illustrate just how ridiculous these arbitrary skin exposures can be...
Interesting lingerie, yes.
The bracelet doesn't even BEGIN to go with that outfit.

Pretty much all week we'll be 10 degrees or so below normal here in central Florida, and this means that a daily high in the mid-60's will be sending dyed in the wool sunshine stater's out to brave the frigid outdoors looking for those elusive things northerners refer to as ear-muffs. Luckily, there will be no need to figure out what in all hell's to do with let alone even find rock salt, windshield scrapers, or, heavens forbid, snow tires, and this is a very good thing indeed.
The mere thought of frozen-over roads would send hapless cars and trucks and scooters of all sizes into whatever ditches were available and I won't even GO THERE with regards to what'd happen to senior citizen drivers. Suffice to say that Ford would be forced to ask FEMA for assistance in getting Grand Marquis repair parts flown in and there'd be hell to pay in answering why ice-levee's weren't constructed so as to keep the stuff away from driveways.

Medicare is tens of trillions of dollars in the red. It is expected to go bankrupt by 2017. In order to pay for Medicare alone, the government will either have to cut every other federal program in existence, or raise federal income taxes to rates as high as 77 percent.
Medicare is like a $500 hamburger: I assume it's good -- it had better be -- but no one would say, "THAT'S A FANTASTIC SUCCESS!"
Until 10 minutes ago, the liberal argument for national health care was that it wasn't fair that some people -- "the rich" -- have access to better health care than others.
In liberals' ideal world, everyone lives in abject poverty and stands in long lines, but we all live in the same abject poverty and stand in the same long lines -- just like in their beloved Soviet Union of recent memory! (Except the commissars, who get excellent health care, food, housing, maid service and no lines.)
Instead of being honest and telling us that their plan is to make health care worse and more expensive -- but fairer! -- liberals have recently begun claiming that providing universal health care will actually save money. Overnight, they went from wailing about basic human needs being "more important than bombs" to claiming: "Our plan will be cheaper!"
Hmmm, I didn't make any notes to debate the manifestly insane points. But I'm pretty sure that extending full medical benefits to 30 million people who don't currently have them -- 47 million once the federal health commission rules that illegal aliens are covered -- will not be less expensive than the current system.
You can say -- mistakenly -- that the liberals' plan is more compassionate. You can say -- also incorrectly -- that it will be fairer. On no set of facts can you say it will be cheaper.
Democrats keep citing the Congressional Budget Office's "scoring" of their bills as if that means something.
The CBO is required to score a bill based on the assumptions provided by the bill's authors. It's worth about as much as a report card filled out by the student himself.
Democrats could write a bill saying: "Assume we invent a magic pill that will make cars get 1,000 miles per gallon. Now, CBO, would that save money?"
The CBO would have to conclude: Yes, that bill will save money.
Among the tricks the Democrats put into their health care bills for the CBO is that the government will collect taxes for 10 years, but only pay out benefits for the last six years. Will that save money? Yes, the CBO says, this bill is "deficit neutral"!
But what about the next 10 years and the next 10 years and the next 10 years after that? Will the health care plan continually pay benefits only in the last six years of every 10-year period? I think their plan assumes we'll all be dead from global warming in a decade.
Also, I note that the Democrats claim it's urgent that we pass ObamaCare by Christmas, but the bill doesn't get around to paying out any benefits until 2014. Poor uninsured chumps."
Ya know the really really weird part about Obamacare?
The Dems KNOW it isn't workable, they KNOW the country could never ever afford it and Medicare, and that to even TRY such a stupid ass thing would be tantamount to signaling the death of America and re-painting the road signs in Chinaman'ese.
They can't be that stupid, they simply can't wish to make most of us THAT poor and therefore THAT needing of health care and dental care and food stamps and extra cash for the kids we forget to abort.
Or could they?
I suppose its really all about POWER. Bereft of kings and queens...Barney Frank doesn't count...there ARE folks who would like to step into the vacuum alla that there deposed royalty created when we kicked them out of the country.
And royalty NEEDS serfs and peons and windswept shit in the streets and how's that EVER gonna happen with this stupid ass deal we call Democracy?
By: Dan Weil"House Republican Leader John Boehner, Ohio, says Senate Democrats’ healthcare bill doesn’t keep federal money from financing abortions, as they claim.
“Fixed it is not,” Boehner writes on his web site.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s, D-Nev., latest healthcare ‘manager’s amendment’ would still levy a new ‘abortion premium’ fee on Americans under the Democrats’ healthcare plan.”
The amendment doesn’t prohibit abortion coverage for federally subsidized plans participating in the insurance exchange, Boehner says.
“Instead, the amendment includes layers of accounting gimmicks that demand that plans participating in the exchange or the new government-run plan … must establish ‘allocation accounts’ when elective abortion is a covered benefit,” Boehner writes.
“Everyone enrolled in these plans must pay a monthly abortion premium, and these funds will be used to pay for the elective abortion services.”
To be sure, the bill does allow states to opt out of the requirement is they pass laws to prohibit insurance coverage of abortion, Boehner writes.
“But it’s a sham because it does nothing to prevent one state’s tax dollars from paying for elective abortions in other states.”
Boehner isn’t the only abortion opponent upset with the Senate bill.
National Right to Life Committee legislative director Douglas Johnson said in a statement, “The new abortion language solves none of the fundamental abortion-related problems with the Senate bill, and it actually creates some new abortion-related problems.”
Yep. Even if your state votes to ban federal monies for liberal birth control procedures such as abortion, you'll STILL see your tax dollars going to states like NY and California and Massachusetts and other dirty places, so that THEY can offer retroactive birth control for their subhuman constituencies.
Hope and pray that this nonsense goes kaput come the 2010 elections before its too late to stop the total march to socialism.

Somehow I missed his passing back on December 10. For me, his quintessential role was that of Bat Masterson, but won't soon forget the original War of the Worlds, nor Burke's Law even.
But it was the Masterson portrayal that got me hooked. Gene died in an old actors home at the age of 90. The real Bat died at work.
On the morning of October 25, 1921, Bat Masterson sat behind his newspaper desk, picked up his ink pen and wrote these words, "There are those who argue that everything breaks even in this dump of a world of ours. I suppose these ginks who argue that way hold that because the rich man gets ice in the summer and the poor man gets it in the winter things are breaking even for both. Maybe so, but I'll swear that I can't see it that way..." These would be the last words he wrote. He died of a heart attack at his desk at the age of 67.

This is Australia model Jessica Hart cavorting on Bondi Beach in Sydney. Since I happened to have lived a couple miles away, I don't for a moment believe it.
Bondi is a topless beach. A totally naked beach is just around the bend, so Bondi is actually where the prudes go to sun and fun and no self-respecting gal with any stuff at all would be caught dead wearing a top on Bondi.
Score yet another expose by the new media.

"Tomorrow morning, the delegates at the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen will awaken to a very simple but powerful message:
“In America, We Have a Constitution. It Begins: We the People…”
These are the opening lines of a message to the American delegates in Copenhagen and the rest of the world sent on behalf of the American people by American Solutions. They are meant as a reminder to both Obama Administration officials and international climate activists that under our constitutional system, the American people, not government bureaucrats, are sovereign.
Ronald Reagan was right when he said that America is a nation that has a government -- not the other way around.
And if you have any doubt that the delegates at Copenhagen need to hear this message, take a look at this:
(The picture) is a reference guide being handed out by one of the non-governmental organizations at Copenhagen to keep track of all the proposals to reduce emissions from deforestation and degradation. Its purposefully modeled after the Chinese mass murderer Mao Tse-Tung’s “Little Red Book of Communism.”
Can the profoundly undemocratic nature of this conference be any clearer?
Congress Has the Power to Protect the Constitution. It Should Use It.
American Solutions’ message to the Obama Administration and the Copenhagen delegates is this:
President Obama cannot bind the American people to job killing international agreements on climate change without the advice and consent of the United States Senate.
Similarly, he can’t bypass the peoples’ representatives in Congress by having the EPA pursue the same goals through bureaucratic totalitarianism.
This message to the President is also a message to Congress. Should the Obama Administration act unilaterally and subvert the Constitution, the American people will rightfully rise up in opposition.
Congress has the power to protect its constitutional role and protect the people’s voice in how we’re governed. It should use it..."
But of course Hussein would wish to substitute the EPA for alla that there Advice and Consent stuff.
HE can call the shots for the EPA, giving him the total control ALL dictators lust for.
Let's face it, nothing could be MORE clear...
Our first illegal immigrant president wants to be king and that's that.
Screw the bloody bugger. Keep the powder dry and pray that saner heads will prevail before we need to use it.

"A chemistry student in the Ukraine was found dead with his jaw blown off by what is believed to be exploding chewing gum, according to reports.
The 25-year-old's disfigured remains were discovered at his parent's home in the northern Ukrainian city of Konotop, reports in the Eastern European country said.
The young man, who studied at Kiev Polytechnic Institute, was working at a computer late on Saturday when the alleged explosion happened.
"A loud pop was heard from the student's room," the ukranews.com Web site said, citing an aide to the city's police chief.
"When his relatives entered the room, they saw that the lower part of the young man's face had been blown off."
A forensic examination established that the chewing gum was covered with an unidentified chemical substance, thought to be some type of explosive material.
The student apparently had a bizarre habit of chewing gum after dipping it into citric acid, Russian news agency Ria Novosti said.
Officers found both citric acid packets and a similar-looking unidentified substance, believed to be some kind of explosive material, on a table near the body, the agency continued.
Investigators suspect that the student simply confused the packets and put gum covered with explosive material into his mouth..."
Stories like this are what keeps me from believing that only American "journalists" are A.) Too dumb to waste oxygen on, B.) Lazy-ass no-nothings who steal each and every paycheck, and 3.) Sure to be the eventual downfall of the mainstream media as we know it.
So this kid has a package of explosive stuff sitting on his desk right next to his citric acid stuff. Sure. Lots of guys bring home high explosives from school then confuse them with chewing gum flavor enhancers. Hell, I like to dip the tip of my ceegars into bourbon now and again and just the other day almost accidentally mistook my cars gastank for a snifter and that'll teach me not to park the thing in the living room.

Gay rights activists say the bill, which has prompted growing international opposition, promotes hatred and could set back efforts to combat HIV/AIDS. They believe the bill is part of a continentwide (sic) backlash because Africa's gay community is becoming more vocal.."
So lemme get this straight...
Curtailing the folks who are most likely to acquire then pass along AIDS could set back efforts to combat the filthy disease...
Probably exacerbate global warming, too.
Personally don't give a squat about who diddles whom and for what reason as long as it is consenting adults doing the diddle thang but fer chrissake at least TRY to keep it real, mkay?
"Barack Obama, understanding the histrionics required in climate change debates, promises that U.S. emissions in 2050 will be 83 percent below 2005 levels. If so, 2050 emissions will equal those in 1910, when there were 92 million Americans. But there will be 420 million in 2050, so Obama's promise means that per capita emissions then will be about what they were in 1875.
That. Will. Not. Happen.
Skeptics about the shrill certitudes concerning catastrophic man-made warming are skeptical because climate change is constant: From millennia before the Medieval Warm Period (800 to 1300), through the Little Ice Age (1500 to 1850), and for millennia hence, climate change is always a 100 percent certainty.
Skeptics doubt that the scientists' models, which cannot explain the present, infallibly map the distant future.
The Financial Times' peculiar response to the CRU materials is: The scientific case for alarm about global warming "is growing more rather than less compelling." If so, then could anything make the case less compelling? A CRU e-mail says: "The fact is that we can't account for the lack of warming at the moment" — this "moment" is in its second decade — "and it is a travesty that we can't."
The travesty is the intellectual arrogance of the authors of climate change models partially based on the problematic practice of reconstructing long-term prior climate changes. On such models we are supposed to wager trillions of dollars — and substantially diminished freedom.
Some climate scientists compound their delusions of intellectual adequacy with messiah complexes. They seem to suppose themselves a small clerisy entrusted with the most urgent truth ever discovered. On it, and hence on them, the planet's fate depends. So some of them consider it virtuous to embroider facts, exaggerate certitudes, suppress inconvenient data, and manipulate the peer review process to suppress scholarly dissent and, above all, to declare that the debate is over.
Consider the sociology of science, the push and pull of interests, incentives, appetites, and passions. Governments' attempts to manipulate Earth's temperature now comprise one of the world's largest industries.
Tens of billions of dollars are being dispensed, as by the U.S. Energy Department, which has suddenly become, in effect, a huge venture capital operation, speculating in green technologies.
Political, commercial, academic, and journalistic prestige and advancement can be contingent on not disrupting the (postulated) consensus that is propelling the gigantic and fabulously lucrative industry of combating global warming.
Copenhagen is the culmination of the post-Kyoto maneuvering by people determined to fix the world's climate by breaking the world's — especially America's — population to the saddle of ever-more-minute supervision by governments.
But Copenhagen also is prologue for the 2010 climate change summit in Mexico City, which will be planet Earth's last chance, until the next one."
So then Barack Obama lies. No, he isn't merely confused, hell, even someone as low brow as all that takes one look at the reality of it all and determines that the only way out of the climate change morass is to simply prevaricate as much and as often as possible. To the likes of Barack Obama, climate change is big business, and whats any genuine liberal to do but tax it.
A wise man once said, "Follow the money". The bigger the fortune to be made the more necessary the great lie.
Another wise man once said "There's a sucker born every minute". These days we even know their address. Huffington Post, NY Times, Daily Kos. Pick your poison. Just don't exhale. You'll be taxed.

COPENHAGEN -- "Shakespeare's Marcellus was right. Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.
In this hotbed of homogeneity, where global warming is a sacred assumption for the faithful, 15,000 people will come together from 192 countries to pray for two weeks over what can be done to save the Earth from certain doom. Few places are better suited to handle the throngs of unquestioning believers who will journey from around the globe.
Dissent is not tolerated, and diversity -- in any form other than biodiversity -- is not welcome here.But it turns out that Denmark's big claim to greenery isn't quite so impressive when you find out that they do not include one of their biggest and dirtiest industries -- shipping -- in calculating their annual carbon footprint.
That's because the last great world climate treaty, Kyoto, does not make them include their nasty shipping business in the calculation. No wonder the Danes liked that so much.
But this crowd gathering here is far worse than just a bunch of hand-wringing Hamlets dithering in Denmark.
....Representatives for Tiger Wood and Bill Clinton deny their clients have de-mothballed several Concordes so as to remain on call and ready to go for the start of the conference and its many amenities...

Sadly, the "human sacrifice deniers" lost the argument to Aztec CRU scientists, who explained that there was a "scientific consensus" on the benefits of ritual murder.
But at least the Aztecs only slaughtered tens of thousands of humans in the name of "climate change." The global warming cultists want us all dead"
With, of course them alive and ready to inherit what remains of the earth.
Cuz that's how South Park kids think. Life as we know it will disappear but they will be spared because....
Unlike the dinosaurs, the tree-huggers might be as dumb as a box of claw hammers but huddling together on the internet and sharing pics of Obama in his underwear will save them.

Co-Titled: And Why Are We Not Surprised?
"The Senate’s Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, substituted into HR 3590, and the House-passed Affordable Health Care for America Act, HR 3962, each contain provisions that purport to bar illegal aliens from benefiting from certain health programs. But neither bill would satisfactorily or effectively keep unlawful U.S. residents from obtaining new health benefits — thus forcing American taxpayers to subsidize health care for illegal aliens and certain unscrupulous employers.
Key findings include:
- HR 3962 ensures illegal alien access to the exchange and public option. HR 3590 states illegal immigrants are excluded from these.
- Both bills ostensibly bar illegal aliens from receiving the premium subsidy, and both bills use some form of eligibility verification for the subsidy.
- Both bills expand Medicaid eligibility. Both bills lack verification requirements based on citizenship or immigrant status. Both contain serious loopholes to enroll illegal aliens easily into Medicaid. HR 3962 automatically covers anchor babies.
- The eligibility verification process in each bill falls woefully short of protecting taxpayer liability to cover or subsidize people living unlawfully in the United States. Both the House and Senate bills’ verification processes will encourage large-scale fraud and abuse.
- The Senate bill exempts illegal aliens from the mandate that everyone have health insurance or else face a tax penalty. This perverse exemption unfairly treats illegal aliens better than the bill treats American citizens."
The kids don't pay any taxes and are too young to see the scam, the seniors disremembered, and the illegals are here for the handouts so of course they vote SOCIALIST.
Little white ball smacker says he's sorry for it all

Peruvian police arrest suspects who allegedly drained their victims and sold liquid as an anti-wrinkle treatment...Peru reacted with revulsion and horror to reports that scores of peasants may have been butchered by the gang, which was said to have operated in Huánuco, a rural province dotted with Inca temples between the jungle and Andean peaks. Also, rumors that the alleged gang might very well be branching out to heretofore unreachable sources such as those from America have sent shockwaves through certain communities and are listed as the reason behind popular American television icon Oprah Winfrey's sudden rush into retirement.

As long as the general has brought it up: Never in recorded history has diversity been anything but a problem. Look at Ireland with its Protestant and Catholic populations, Canada with its French and English populations, Israel with its Jewish and Palestinian populations.
Or consider the warring factions in India, Sri Lanka, China, Iraq, Czechoslovakia (until it happily split up), the Balkans and Chechnya. Also look at the festering hotbeds of tribal warfare -- I mean the beautiful mosaics -- in Third World hellholes like Afghanistan, Rwanda and South Central, L.A.
"Diversity" is a difficulty to be overcome, not an advantage to be sought. True, America does a better job than most at accommodating a diverse population. We also do a better job at curing cancer and containing pollution. But no one goes around mindlessly exclaiming: "Cancer is a strength!" "Pollution is our greatest asset!"
..."liberals celebrate diversity only in the case of superficial characteristics like race, gender, sexual preference and country of origin. They reject diversity when we need it, such as in "diversity" of legal forums.
After conferring with everyone at Zabar's, Obama decided that if a standard civilian trial is good enough for Martha Stewart, then it's good enough for the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks. So Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is coming to New York!
Mohammed's military tribunal was already under way when Obama came into office, stopped the proceedings and, eight months later, announced that Mohammed would be tried in a federal court in New York.
In a liberal's reckoning, diversity is good when we have both Muslim jihadists and patriotic Americans serving in the U.S. military. But diversity is bad when Martha Stewart and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed are subjected to different legal tribunals to adjudicate their transgressions.
Terrorists tried in civilian courts will be entitled to the whole panoply of legal protections accorded Stewart or any American charged with a crime, such as the presumption of innocence, the right to a fair trial, the right to exclude evidence obtained in violation of Miranda rights, the right to a speedy trial, the right to confront one's accusers, the right to a change of venue, the right to examine the evidence against you, and the right to subpoena witnesses and evidence in one's defense.
Members of Congress have it in their power to put an end to this lunacy right now. If they don't, they are as complicit in Mohammed's civilian trial as the president. Article I, Section 8, and Article III, Section 1 of the Constitution give Congress the power to establish the jurisdiction of the lower federal courts and to create exceptions to that jurisdiction.."
To the run-of-the-mill liberal, "E Pluribus Unum" translates to "Let's focus on the one and fuck the many!", as there's simply no other way to explain such a dramatic shift in what the country is all about, why indeed it was created to begin with, and at the end of the day...WHAT FRICKIN WORKS.
I push while you pull never worked out all that swell, but to the basement dwellers that fund and run and squeak kumbaya along with their elected loons in Congress, it's a way to be seen and heard because the alternative is to spend eternity plodding along as the make-believe nobodies they really are.
Now, that was jim-dandy when they were inflicting nothing more than flea bites on the body politic but its getting serious. Treating enemy combatants as dyed-in-the-wool Americans is eyes wide stupid and generally the worst of ideas. It comes from the liberal mindset so that's a given, but the days of placating them so's they don't hang themselves with mommy's clothesline in daddy's cellar is quickly retreating in the rearview mirror and with NORMAL folks they'd be getting the message BEFORE everything fell to shit, but in case you've not been paying attention, they AIN'T normal.
And now even our General's are infected, proving the pathogen to be highly contagious so enough is enough.

Boy, 11, Kills Bear That Wouldn't Leave Family's Porch
DRIGGS, Idaho — "An 11-year-old Idaho boy fatally shot a black bear on his family's front porch after he said it wouldn't leave.
The boy was at his home near Driggs, just west of the Idaho-Wyoming border, with his younger sisters last Wednesday when the bear showed up. He says he couldn't shoo the animal away, so he went and got a gun and shot it.
Doug Petersen, a conservation officer with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, says the boy and his family probably won't be in any trouble, because the agency had received multiple complaints about a black bear in the area. The bear had been hanging around a transfer station and getting into garbage cans and bird feeders.
Petersen says Fish and Game doesn't usually issue citations in situations where the bear had been a problem around humans.
The agency has issued the family a permit to keep the bear's carcass."
Obama can kowtow to china and Japan and the Afrighted Kingdom can carbon-allowance its subjects 'till the cows come home.
But stories like these make me glad to be an American. That's something neither his majesty nor the UN nor the N.Y. Times or any other dirty thing can take away from the real America.
Our bogus President...that's what.
No American President Ever Bowed to a Foreign Leader — Until Now"President Obama created a new presidential precedent when he bowed to the Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko Saturday.
No president of the United States in the more than 230 years since the country was founded in 1776 had ever bowed to a member of royalty. That was until Barack Obama’s presidency.
In April, President Obama bowed to the Saudi king during the G-20 meeting. At the time, Obama’s deferential bow was somewhat obscured, and the White House insisted that the president simply had leaned forward to shake the king’s hand.
But the president's recent demonstration of royal deference to the Japanese emperor and empress suggests his earlier action was no aberration."
In practicing to be EMPEROR OBO THE FIRST, but of course Barry Hussein digs alla the bowing and scraping shit.
Could this simple fuck embarrass us ANY more?

Everyone in Britain could be given a personal 'carbon allowance'...Is the United Kingdom circling the bowl on its way towards oblivion...
"Lord Smith of Finsbury believes that implementing individual carbon allowances for every person will be the most effective way of meeting the targets for cutting greenhouse gas emissions.
It would involve people being issued with a unique number which they would hand over when purchasing products that contribute to their carbon footprint, such as fuel, airline tickets and electricity."
Whether it be Lord Smith of Finsbury or Lord Fin of Smithsbury, one thing is perfectly clear.
Them Brits are goners.

SOMERVILLE, N.J. — "A quadriplegic in New Jersey has the right to bear arms even though he can’t hold a gun or pull a trigger.
A judge ruled Tuesday that James Cap is eligible for a firearms ID, which is required to buy a gun.
Manville’s police chief had rejected the 46-year-old’s application last year.
Cap says he was an avid hunter as a teenager before he was paralyzed after breaking his neck in a high school football game 30 years ago.
Cap says he’ll put the gun in a special wheelchair mount and operate it with a special breathing tube so he can hunt again.
The judge ruled Cap can have the permit only if his guns are stored in a safe and qualified people assist him with the weapons."
I'm taking this as a victory. Because it'd be just wrong to look at any glass half full on a Veterans Day. Not gonna do it. So what if New Jersey cops despise the Constitution and its judges believe that the Founding Fathers spent alla that there time fighting King George just so's they could hunt.
Mr. James Cap is sort of a real citizen again. I'm happy for him, and fervently hope that Manville's police chief goes straight to hell.

Basically, and this is of course from the Marine perspective, when a person identifies his or herself to be a follower of islam, very little can be asked of them with regards to anything to do with their religion. Political correctness has reached the point whereby there need be a body count before action can be taken on a suspected terrorist sympathizer, and to believe otherwise is to disregard this madman's actions and the societal protection afforded him so as not to offend the America-haters.
"U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News."
And since Barry Hussein doesn't seem to think this is a big deal and wants us to settle down and smell the roses, count on more murder followed by much of the same.

"A U.S. soldier opened fire Thursday at Fort Hood, Texas, killing at least 11 people and wounding 31 others, military officials said. The gunman was shot to death, and two other soldiers were in custody.
NBC News’ Pete Williams reported that U.S. officials identified the gunman as Maj. Malik Nadal Hasan, an Army psychiatrist who had been promoted to major in May. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchinson, R-Texas, said military officials told her that the gunman, who was 39 or 40, was about to be deployed to Iraq and was “upset about it.”
Lt. Gen. Robert W. Cone, commanding general of the Army’s III Corps, who briefed President Barack Obama on the shootings, said the gunman used two handguns.Disregarding his ethnicity for a moment, it is interesting that a mental health professional snapped like that.
Not everyone is suited for service life. But not everyone so unsuited goes around killing folks. There's lots more to this dastardly deed, bet on it.
"The gunman behind the carnage at a Texas military base hollered "Allahu Akbar!" before unleashing a bloody rampage that left more than a dozen dead, an onlooker told investigators.
"We do have a witness who reported that," Col. John Rossi said Friday morning from Fort Hood."
And my memory this day goes back to May 10, 1956. Day after my birthday and me and Pop celebrated by taking in my first game at old Yankee stadium. Fella by the name of Mantle hit a home run off of a Cleveland pitcher named Lemon and I thought that was the funniest name I had ever heard.
That year, the Yanks beat the Dodgers 4 games to 3, and we were scheduled to be at game 5 but I came down with the chicken pox so we missed Don Larson's perfect game.
53 years, a new stadium later, and the old ball club wins another one. #27.
Congrats to them, and to Yankee fans the world over.

"A passenger enjoying a civilian joyride accidentally cut the trip short when he ejected himself from the plane after grabbing the eject lever while trying to brace himself.
The passenger, who was flying in a Pilatus PC-7 Mk II with an air force pilot friend, The Daily Mail reported.
He was instantly blasted 320-feet into the sky by the rocket-powered chair, before floating to the ground with an automatic parachute, the paper reported.
Air Force officers quickly deployed a helicopter to retrieve the passenger after his fall 80 miles south of Cape Town, South Africa."
I've done some stupid ass things in my life but this would take the cake. If memory serves, the eject levers are usually pretty much out of the way, but I am unfamiliar with this particular aircraft.

"I'm going to have all the negotiations around a big table. We'll have the negotiations televised on C-SPAN, so that people can see who is making arguments on behalf of their constituents and who are making arguments on behalf of the drug companies or the insurance companies."

"Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, He'll
just kill you."
Stay tuned for more pearls from the gunny. As I remember them. Which might take forever. Or most of it.
Put aside the fact that these poodle shooters are, well, poodle shooters, and listen to the men who've been trading tons of rounds with Afghan and Iraqi terrorists.
Seems that the barrels of both the M4 and M16 are becoming warped when trying to compete with the AK-47 variants during full rock & roll, and to this I say, "Duh!". Piece of shit that the AK's are, the one thing they CAN do is crank out round after round and guess what...
...During firefights that is kinda important.
One of the inconvenient truths one learns early on when going toe to toe with one raghead or another, is the fact that the AK's...inaccurate though they may be...can run rings around our shoulder weapons when push comes to shove and it didn't take the Afghans and Iraqis long to realize that the best way to take on an American infantry unit was to bombard them with fast and furious fire. Fast and furious counterfire is returned and the AK wielders severely stress our fella's. Sure, Americans are better trained and better shots and have loads of logistic support, but look for more tales of one unit or another receiving unnecessary casualties when repelling boarders.
And isn't that a damned shame.

BISHKEK, Kyrgyzstan — The director of a circus arena says an ice-skating bear turned on its trainers, killing one and seriously wounding another.
Kurmangazy Isanayev says workers dragged the trainers with a visiting Russian troupe away from the bear following Wednesday's attack, as they were rehearsing for a show in Bishkek.
The exits were then closed and rescue services called in.
Police say they shot the bear dead.In a related but would appear to be coincidental note, representatives of skating star Tonya Harding say that it was mere happenstance they were in town auditioning for a similar show featuring the former Olympic hopeful.

Sheriff Joe doesn't like criminals. Sheriff Joe arrests them whenever he can. The Obama administration LOVES crooks, and thieves and scalawags and felons...hell, now we're talkin' about MOST of his appointees, right?...so they want Sheriff Joe to stop going after the poor beaners who aren't bothering anybody as long as you don't count the women they rape and kill and the drug wars they start and alla that there human trafficking stuff.
To Obo and his merry men, this is penny-nickle-dime bullswaddle, and hells bells why can't Sheriff Joe go after some REAL ne'er do wells, like the FOX news crews?

Damn but sometimes it's been a labor of love AND despisement that's kept me going, but going we go.
What more fitting to feature in #10,000 than back to my roots as something of a gun blogger. The BIG-60 will be upon me come next May, and am thinking of treating myself to an Ed Brown Executive Elite 1911.
Had a chance to handle and shoot one a couple years back and was quite impressed.
• Ed Brown forged frame and slide
• 5” Government model slide
• Unloaded Weight: 38 oz

Who has a good eye for the ridiculous. Hence his stopping by here now and again.
As to the picture, a case could be made that the Emperor is prettier than his Empress.
Then again, they're both so damned ugly "pretty" shouldn't be used in the same universe let alone sentence.

Two postings after this will be our 10,000th.
Back when I was hale and hardy the place was jumpin' but don't count me out just yet.
Thinking of giving away something in some sort of contest for #10,000. Been fooling with blades as of late, and for my way of thinking that something would be a knife I've put the edge on and carry a lot. Nothing fancy, hell I sure ain't, but something from the old ticker. An article I'd miss. Knife pictured is 440C, opens and closes like a champ, has a spine near on 3 mm's and is sharpened past scary and into light-saber territory. With the caveat of course that such items are inherently dangerous and the utmost care should be taken not to cut ones nuts off. Unless one wishes that to be so. (Females please insert the appropriate body part in place of stones.)
"He didn't just cross a border, he crossed a galaxy!" according to the costume's description. "He's got his green card, but it's from another planet! Sure to get some laughs, the Illegal Alien Adult Costume includes an orange prison-style jumpsuit with 'Illegal Alien' printed on the front, an alien mask and a 'green card.'"
But not everyone thinks the costume is sure to get some laughs.
It's "distasteful, mean-spirited and ignorant of social stigmas and current debate on immigration reform," says Angelica Salas."
Some funny stuff.
The original headline read "Immigrants Not Amused...By Halloween Costume", but who cares?
ILLEGAL immigrants may not be happy, but why should they? Since when is it our job to make criminals all warm and fuzzy? That there pursuit of happiness deal was for...take a deep breath now, socialist assholes...American citizens. The story is from an LA newspaper so take it all with a grain of salt, but even La-La-Land should know the difference between crooks and genuine immigrants.
Asking too much, I know.

Hillary Clinton suffers ‘mis-speaking’ relapse with Belfast bomb claimsHillary Clinton has been caught out “mis-speaking” again in a manner that suggests that she hasn’t learnt from past experiences of her globe-trotting, “lily-gilding” speeches.
The US Secretary of State was exposed during her battle with Barack Obama to become the Democratic presidential nominee over her claims to have landed in Bosnia under sniper fire.
She was even described as “a wee bit silly” for claiming greater credit than was her due for the Irish peace process, having made several visits to Northern Ireland as First Lady.She was back in Belfast last week, giving a gentle push to politicians dragging their heels over a final piece in the peace process jigsaw.
But according to the Sunday Life newspaper, during a speech she made to the Stormont parliament she said that Belfast’s landmark Europa Hotel was devastated by an explosion when she first stayed there in 1995.
The Europa, where most journalists covering the decades-long conflict stayed, was famed as Europe’s most bombed hotel, earning the moniker “the Hardboard Hotel”.
However, the last Provisional IRA bomb to damage the Europa was detonated in 1993, two years before President Clinton and his wife checked in for the night.
Mrs Clinton told assembled politicians at Stormont: “When Bill and I first came to Belfast we stayed at the Europa Hotel ... even though then there were sections boarded up because of damage from bombs.”
This, ya see, isn't all that unusual. For a politician in general, and a Clinton in particular.
Hillary is of course the poster child for forked-tonguedness, having nary a scruple in her entire being and accustomed to uttering so very many lies as to be incapable of remembering the actual truth.

Fate. Kismet, full frontal folderol. Whatever.
While back I acquired two Extreme Ratio RAO knives. Sent one to a friend overseas, kept one to fool around with. Tell you one thing, I've never used, owned, or fiddled with so strong a folder. Folders are important for lots of reasons. For me, the capability of carrying something useful but concealable is the bomb.
Whilst I was "testing" the one I kept, well, I finally snapped the friggin thing. Pretty much on purpose too, as it was going neck and neck with a Ka-Bar until they both gave up the ghost. One after another. Ka-Bar said see-ya after I pounded it once too often into a knotty tree limb; blade snapped just above the handle. The RAO made it through where Ka-Bar's fear to tread then kablooey, snapped about two inches from the blade's tip when being introduced to another, nastier-ass hunk of timber.
Rough use, my ass, I was in one of those moods. After having been told how damned Herculean the RAO family is I decided to see for myself. Hey, you'll be AS dumb once you're retired too.
Anyways, long story short because I'm not on the mood to do much more. The friend overseas died. His family sorted out his personal effects and today I received the barely used RAO he'd been working with and keeping me abreast of. He liked it. I took a shaky shot of it right out of the delivery box but if you want to see one done by a pro then click on the link I included above.
Next best thing to a fixed blade.

Michelle Obama in Copenhagen. Where she and hubby Hussein spoke about themselves, and nothing else, failed to even mention how terrific the US and/or Chicago is, and oh yeah, lied their lying asses off as usual.
Carl Lewis made his first Olympic appearance in 1984. Michelle was 20. Guess daddy and her were real close.

France is anxious about the Obama administration’s pursuit of a deal on Iran’s nuclear programme, warning that the US must not allow Tehran to expand its uranium enrichment without facing fresh sanctions.
As world powers await a critical meeting with Iran in Geneva this week, diplomatic attention is focused on a proposed deal under which Iran might put about 80 per cent of its low-enriched uranium out of potential military use."
And isn't this the bitch of all imaginable bitches...
Telling US to be bold.
Gonna take me YEARS to get over THIS embarrassment.

WASHINGTON, Oct 2 (Reuters) - "U.S. President Barack Obama's politically risky Olympics gamble failed to bring home the gold on Friday, with the Olympics committee's refusal to grant the 2016 Summer Games to his hometown Chicago.
And wasn't it FUN listening to the cable talking heads on how Chi-Town was a certifiable LOCK to get the summer games?
Not that you can blame these morons. Since THEY have fallen in love with the jackass they're CERTAIN that the rest of the world must have as well. But its yet another reason to worry about the naivete of both the Obo camp and the state run media that loves him.
BOTH group of fools actually thought that personality would make a difference, and didn't figure on the corrupt Olympic big shots simply selecting whomever guaranteed them more kickback bucks.
This fool and his clumsy brethren can't nail down an Olympic bid, but expects us to believe he can talk the Iranians out of nuking the Jews?
And as for this being a "risky trip", bullshit. Those that love him will STILL love him and those that hate him get to have a good laugh at his expense.
Precisely how a court jester is SUPPOSED to act.

"In her speech in Copenhagen today, First Lady Michelle Obama said her trip to Denmark, along with the travel of her "dear friend" and "chit-chat buddy" Oprah Winfrey, as well as tomorrow's visit by President Obama, is a "sacrifice" on behalf of the children of Chicago and the United States. "As much of a sacrifice as people say this is for me or Oprah or the president to come for these few days," the first lady told a crowd of people involved in the Chicago project, "so many of you in this room have been working for years to bring this bid home."
"As first lady, as many of you know, I’ve made it a priority to bridge the gap between the White House and communities across D.C. and across the country," Mrs. Obama continued. "I’ve spent much of my first nine months trying to open the doors to the White House to kids who might not otherwise see themselves having access to these institutions, because that’s where I came from – communities like that where kids never dreamed that they could set foot in the White House, let alone live there…And Barack and I made a point of doing the same thing when we lived in Chicago – making the concerns of kids in all sorts of communities our own."
And there you have it.
This disgusting witch believes that pitching in for something the little people want is a sacrifice.
Not a DUTY, mind you.
There was a time when I believed that such cretins existed in small enough numbers as to be insignificant in the grand scheme of things.
That was before the democrat party began breeding them like so many commie rabbits.

PITTSBURGH (AP) - President Barack Obama says the G-20 summit in Pittsburgh was relatively tranquil and protesters should realize that world leaders are trying to shape a global economy that helps poor people.
Also, when the President was asked his opinion of the latest Iranian nuclear threat, he responded with, "Forget weapon systems, all that Iran really needs are two things. Number 1, a universal health care program such as the one I am creating for America, Number 2, a global warming initiative to make certain that future generations of Iranians have plenty of breathable air after the Israeli's nuke the shit out of them, and Number 3, the creation of an Iranian Black Caucus that would supervise the establishment of an ACORN-like entity that would assure equality for Iranian prostitutes the country-over, and just like our ACORN find the absolute best 13 year-0ld chinamen girls to ship in-country as sex slaves."
"And isn't it a kick in the ass that we blacks finally get to have and supervise slaves like ACORN is helping to promote? I'm telling you we're genuinely dancing in the streets about that shit. Hey, that recorder isn't on, right...?

Umm...in a word...NO.
Everyone...well, liberals notwithstanding because liberals never learn shit about history...everyone knows that the United Nations was created to give American allies a place to gather in order to formulate plans for the destruction of Hitler and Tojo. You needn't be a great big nation, just one interested in the rights of mankind and preserving the peace. But, first and foremost, you absolutely, positively HADDA be our ally.
Times have changed and now any dirtwater duchy can join the UN, particularly if that duchy has dinosaur droppings to spare and hates America to boot.
Hates America like Barack Hussein Obama hates America. Wants it taken down a peg or three and wants Americans as bankrupt and begging for handouts as, let's say Europe. Sort of like a Revenge of The Nerds, International Style.
Here's Big Ben given' 'em hell.

"Good afternoon ladies of gentlemen, and please allow me to introduce myself. I am Barack Obama. For the past 9 months I've been President of the Untied States of America, and let me tell you what that means.
But first let us go way way back in time. Even before Franklin Theodore Roosevelt bombed Pearl's Harbor, even before Henry Ford invented the car. You America haters have pretty much gone it alone, and by America haters I mean everyone sitting out there in the audience, and that includes the American press. Sure, Jimmy Carter tried and sure again William Washington Clinton did his level best to disgrace America, but I'm here to tell you that at long last you've got a friend in the rectangle office. You've got a friend because I personally hate America even more than you do.
This ain't no peanut farmering, no screwing ugly white women behind the water cooler, hell I've got my own ugly black woman and one beast is enough for any man to handle at any given point in time. All that stuff would do is divert my attention away from truly dissing America, truly screwing America, because my baby step days of merely apologizing for America are over with and it's time to get down and dirty.
In a few months I'll have totally fucked a full one-sixth of the American economy with my Obamacare, so hang in there, and someone give me an AMEN. In a few months I'll have surrendered in Afghanistan, so hang in there. And beginning TODAY I'm pushing climate change until the United States is fucking broke and I do mean busted, so how's about that AMEN?
And in a few MORE months it'll be a quart of skim milk, an ultra-sized bottle of hair straightener, one large, seedless watermelon...
Fuck. Ha, sorry about that. Michelle accidentally slipped her shopping list into my teleprompter shit, but you get my gist.
And the next sound you hear from America, listen closely my fellow America haters. Because that'll be the sound of it all being flushed down the tubes.
Thank you very much, and may Adolph bless you all."

And Darwin Smiles...
"A Missouri man reportedly shot himself in the head accidentally while teaching his girlfriend about gun safety.
According to witnesses James Looney was insistent on giving his girlfriend a personal lesson in firearm safety Friday before taking her to a shooting range, MyFOXMemphis reported.
As part of the tutorial, Looney demonstrated different safety features on several firearms then put the guns to his head and asked if they would fire, Jefferson County Sheriff told the station. The third gun actually went off.
The 40-year-old was pronounced dead at a local hospital the next morning — the same day he was to take his girlfriend to the range, the station reported."ALL guns ARE loaded.
We know this truth to be self evident. Apparently, Mr. Looney...and if EVER a name was apt...thought he knew better and paid for it.

"During a briefing by (self-appointed national mommy) Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, NBC White House reporter Chuck Todd sneezed into his hand, and not his sleeve.
Without missing a beat, the Obama administration's point person on swine flu quickly demonstrated proper procedure…sneeze into your arm!"
The sneeze-into-your-arm DEMAND is of course for peons only.
