Frost Cutlery has them imported from sweat-shops in China, luring in the young, the stupid, the absolutely retarded insomniacs everywhere in the good old U.S. of A.
Here in Florida, the ION Network...if you can call ION a network instead of three guys with some old movies and repeat/canceled TV shows they got on the cheap...offers Cutlery Corner on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights/early mornings, and for me is one helluva terrific comedy. Broadcast direct from beautiful downtown Tennessee, Todd and Tom lie, cheat, and all-out steal if need be, to push their shoddy wares to the unawares, and the prevarications are outright outrageous enough to get most pitchmen some jail time but hey, COX Cable and ION are sleazebags extraordinaire, and this is broadcast really late so who should care?
It's somewhat fascinating because I've simply never witnessed such outright thievery, at least not on American TV, and akin to watching a snake preparing to strike. Dunno if these con men are available where you hail from, but clicking the Cutlery Corner link will whisk you to their website where you can check for yourself.
Oh yeah and before I forget, this back and forth went on last Friday between Todd and his cameraman:

For those who don't remember...last year old noodle arm embarrassed himself mightily. And no, he couldn't even reach the plate.
Which of course then leads to the question...should a man in the prime of his life who cannot throw a baseball sixty and a half feet be running the free world.
(The answer is of course fucking not. Dig up old Taft and even HE could throw that far)

According to the Los Angeles Times, Culp hit his head after falling while walking on Wednesday morning and was found by a jogger who then called 911 shortly after 11 a.m. Culp was pronounced dead shortly after at Queen of Angels hospital, Los Angeles Police Department Bob Binder told the LA Times that the actor's death "is accidental and there appears to be no sign of foul play."
Either Francois goes to jail or the Human Rights Commission is a hoax and a fraud."
A spokesman for the organizers said Coulter was advised against appearing after about 2,000 "threatening" students crowded the entrance to Marion Hall, posing a security threat.
"It would be physically dangerous for Ann Coulter to proceed with this event," said conservative political activist Ezra Levant inside the hall. "This is an embarrassing day for the University of Ottawa and their student body . . . who chose to silence her through threats and intimidation."

The 6-foot, 6-inch Parker was quickly embraced by youngsters as the man in a coonskin cap who stood for the spirit of the American frontier. Boomers gripped by the Crockett craze scooped up Davy lunch boxes, toy Old Betsy rifles, buckskin shirts and trademark fur caps. "The Ballad of Davy Crockett" ("Born on a mountaintop in Tennessee...") was a No. 1 hit for singer Bill Hayes while Parker's own version reached No. 5.
The first three television episodes were turned into a theatrical film, "Davy Crockett, King of the Wild Frontier," in 1955.
True to history, Disney killed off its hero in the third episode, "Davy Crockett at the Alamo," where the real-life Crockett died in 1836 at age 49. But spurred by popular demand, Disney brought back the Crockett character for some episodes in the 1955-56 season, including "Davy Crockett's Keelboat Race." In reporting this development, Hedda Hopper wrote: "Take off those black armbands, kids, and put on your coonskin caps, for Davy Crockett will hit the trail again."
But just as suddenly it had taken the country by storm, the craze died down.
Parker's career then leveled off before he made a TV comeback from 1964-1970 in the title role of the TV adventure series "Daniel Boone" -- also based on a real-life American frontiersman. Actor-singer Ed Ames, formerly of the Ames Brothers, played Boone's Indian friend, Mingo."

Cops have visited elderly Brooklyn couple's home at least 50 TIMES looking for criminals"Brooklyn World War II vet Walter Martin and his wife, Rose, aren't at the top of the NYPD's most wanted list - it just feels that way.
Cops have swooped down on the law-abiding couple's modest Marine Park home at least 50 times in the last eight years hunting bad guys - only to learn they were chasing a bad address.
They've come looking for murder and robbery suspects. Once, cops came hunting for one of their own - an NYPD officer accused of raping his 14-year-old stepdaughter.
In each case, NYPD officers from commands ranging from the north Bronx to Staten Island somehow confused the Martins' two-story home with the hideout of a suspect or key witness - a different person nearly every time.
"I'm really worried," Rose Martin, 82, said. "How could so many people get my address and how could cops be coming from so many different precincts?"
Wednesday, March 17, 2010
Shortly before 7 p.m. Sunday, a male voice came over the public-address system at the Route 42 store in Washington Township and calmly announced: "Attention Walmart customers: All black people leave the store now."
Management later apologized.
Washington Township police and the Gloucester County Prosecutor's Office are investigating the incident as a possible bias crime."
Bottom line: loons believe that black people are too stupid to fend for themselves and need help in doing everything up to and including wiping their butts.
The party and mindset that gave us slavery to begin with just can't let it go.

Federal Government Cannot Explain Runaway Prius Incident"The federal government said Monday it cannot explain a reported incident of sudden, high-speed acceleration in a Toyota Prius on a California freeway last week, a malfunction the driver's lawyer is describing as "the ghost in the machine."

President Obama has pushed back his trip to Indonesia for three days to work with beleaguered Democrats on trying to wrap up a health care overhaul.
The president was expected to leave Thursday for the six-day tour that included Guam and Australia. He has pushed it back until next Sunday.
The White House made the announcement on Press Secretary Robert Gibbs' Twitter.
"The President will delay leaving for Indonesia and Australia - will now leave Sunday - the First Lady will not be on the trip," Gibbs tweeted, "as the law against bringing ugly women to Australia is quite strict and aggressively enforced."
GENEVA (AP) - "The world's largest atom smasher could generate its first scientific breakthrough later this year when operators hope to make discoveries into the elusive nature of dark matter, the director of the European Organization for Nuclear Research said Monday.
Rolf-Dieter Heuer said the Large Hadron Collider would be ramped up to world record power later this month. At 7 trillion electron volts, that will be three times more energy than the record set in November by Heuer's organization - known by its French acronym CERN.
By crashing high energy beams of protons into each other in a 27-kilometer (17-mile) tunnel under the Swiss-French border at Geneva, CERN's scientists hope to gain key insights into the makeup of matter and the creation of the universe billions of years ago in the moments after the Big Bang.
There have been no discoveries so far with the LHC, Heuer said. But he predicted breakthroughs soon into the mysterious dark matter that scientists believe comprises a quarter of the whole universe.
"We will open a door for new physics at the end of this year," Heuer told reporters. "It took several decades for us to understand the visible universe. This is all nicely explained by the standard model, but the big problem is that this is only 5 percent of the universe."
And the chances of you folks finding much of anything about it, are slim and none, and slim is visiting uranus.
These are these same guys that demoted Pluto mostly because it was the ONLY planet discovered by an American, so disregard all their other "arguments" as absolute BS.
Ever since we touched down on the moon 40 years ago, Europe and Russia and China and South America and Togo, have had this space-envy deal going on.
Tired of America being first in anything remotely important, they then went ahead and "discovered" bogus sciences so as to then take the lead in who's got the smartest kids department.
The Hadron Collider probably won't even work, but on the chance it does, will do not much of anything but keep spooky-science'ers as Einstein called them, ungainfully employed.
One good thing about the global warming fiasco has been its alerting anyone vaguely capable of active minded thought to the very real probability that there abound many scientific disciplines that are nothing more than modern day ponzi schemes.
Another Reason To Dismiss Ill-Annoy From The Union: Trooper's lawyers: Dismiss charges in sister's deaths; police don't have to obey speed limits
BELLEVILLE -- "Lawyers for the Illinois State Police trooper accused of causing a crash that killed two Collinsville sisters argued Thursday that the judge in the case must use reason and not emotion when deciding whether prosecutors can pursue reckless homicide and reckless driving charges.
John O'Gara and Jim and Julie Gomric, lawyers for Trooper Matt Mitchell, argued the charges should be dismissed because Mitchell, like other police officers in emergencies, aren't required to obey speed limit laws.
"We empower them to do things others are not allowed to do," O'Gara said, pointing out that police officers are allowed to wear a gun on their hip while driving a car -- a felony for anyone else."
Um, pardon me, Miss O'Gara, but there are lotsa places where non-police-officers are "ALLOWED" to wear a gun on their hip while driving, pally.
Gist of the deal is this; some fatass special person wearing a tin star was texting while racing to the scene of an accident, and like soccer mom's the nation over, he smashed into and killed innocent people.
ANY state, county, town, or anthill that brags so very often about how they willfully employ and empower only special folken to have special "rights" does not belong as a member of these United States.

In Afghanistan (the Stan as our soldiers and Marines are calling it), bridges are more important than any other engagement in modern memory. WE, meaning of course the Americans, since Canada and the Brits are doing their usual cut-run-then blame someone else for their failures, must move tanks, armored vehicles, heavy trucks, HUMVEES, etc, and ASAP over the existing dilapidated bridges, while the enemy can take as long as he wants navigating mountain trails or muddy streams with nothing more burdensome than a recalcitrant donkey or two.
WE own the roads and bridges, THEY still own the hills.
Until a week ago.
On March 1st an important bridge was bombed by an enemy vehicle laden with explosives. An American was killed because no one seemed to bother to erect an effective checkpoint. The responsibility for security of the bridge was a joint RAF/Canadian one, and for the better part of a week both Canada and Great Britain passed the buck until a ground-pounding British Brigadier took full responsibility, even though it was the Royal Air Force that did most of the fucking up.
A war cannot be won without at least adequate logistics. Just ask the Russians. In the Stan, American troops are being led by Brits who take forever to decide when to stand and fight, and/or Canadians who have shied away from anything that goes bang-bang.
This means that Americans are dying needlessly because of major logistical screw-ups. Not to say that Canadian troopers are incompetent. It is to say that the political end of the Canadian spectrum is a morass of impenetrable misdirections that have evolved to make believe that they are helping us fight a war, when they are, in reality, looking after their own asses while ours get burned. And I happen to share George Patton's opinion of the modern British military officer. Marvelous defenders but horrifically inept on offense.
In you've the time please read the following dispatch from Michael Yon. Who is referred to as a "war correspondent" whenever the Yellowstream Media agrees with his dispatches, and a Blogger when they do not, even though he does not have a Blog.

"Howard Stern sponsored a beauty pageant among three of Tiger Woods' alleged mistresses, and cocktail waitress Jamie Jungers came out on top.
Jungers beat out Loredanna Jolie and another Jamie, Jamie Grubbs, for the coveted crown - and $75,000 in cash.
Stern said he felt Jungers was "the true mistress."
Well I guess if you gotta have a mistress she should be a long-legged blond.
Good choice if ya ask me.
"A group of "leading conservative lawyers" -- a phrase never confused with "U.S. Marines" -- has produced an embarrassingly pompous letter denouncing Liz Cheney for demanding the names of attorneys at the Justice Department who formerly represented Guantanamo detainees.
The letter calls Cheney's demand "shameful," before unleashing this steaming pile of idiocy:
"The American tradition of zealous representation of unpopular clients is at least as old as John Adams' representation of the British soldiers charged in the Boston Massacre."
Yes, but even John Adams didn't take a job with the government for another 19 years after defending the British guards -- who, in 1770, were "the police." He also didn't take a position with the U.S. government that involved processing British murder suspects.
I'd be more interested in hearing about the sacred duty of lawyers to defend "unpopular clients" if we were talking about clients who are unpopular with anyone lawyers know.
Every white shoe law firm in the country has been clamoring to take the cases of Guantanamo detainees, while young associates line up to be put on the case. This is even more fun than defending Ted Bundy!
As The Wall Street Journal put it in a 2007 article, a list of the law firms representing Guantanamo detainees "reads like a who's who of America's most prestigious law firms" -- which conveniently doubles as Santa's "naughty" list.
The terrorists' lawyers have included Shearman and Sterling, Arnold & Porter; Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale & Dorr; Covington & Burling; Hunton & Williams; Sullivan & Cromwell; Debevoise & Plimpton; King & Spalding; Cleary Gottlieb, Morrison & Foerster; Jenner & Block; O'Melveny & Myers and Sidley Austin.
At least 34 of the 50 largest firms in the United States have performed pro bono work on behalf of Guantanamo detainees.
Like Hollywood actresses, lawyers need to believe they're noble and courageous to help them forget that they are corporate drones doing soul-destroying work, which mostly consists of making photocopies.
A rule I have is: You're not defending an unpopular client if you're getting awards from the ABA, particularly if the award mentions "courage."
You'll never see a pompous letter like the one attacking Liz Cheney on behalf of any lawyer defending clients who are unpopular with lawyers, which terrorists are not.
You will notice a pattern developing: We only hear paeans to the "American tradition of zealous representation of unpopular clients" when it's being used to defend causes popular with liberals -- serial killers, terrorists and a horny hick who promised to save partial-birth abortion.
Lawyers want to be congratulated for their courage in defending "unpopular" clients, while taking cases that are utterly noncontroversial in their social circles.
They'd be scared to death to take the case of an anti-abortion activist. Defending the guy who killed George Tiller the Baby Killer won't make them a superstar at the next ABA convention.
Not only do Americans have a right to know the legal backgrounds of lawyers setting detainee policy at the Department of Justice, but I personally demand the right not to have to listen to Eddie Haskell lawyers constantly claiming to be Atticus Finch."

Never mind. Lots of dental work and tons of pain killers have made this old top sergeant dopier than usual, but back when Lisa and I lived in Iowa, Crazy Jay and yours truly worked on some handloads of his using copper hollows and agreed that at the mickey mouse velocities driven by large ammo makers, the round lacked sufficient expansion.
Double Tap is not so inclined, and has a 110 grain .357 product that does a legitimate 1600'/second plus out of a 4" Ruger GP-100.
Jay is due to receive a passel, passel and a half of these critters and will report back forthwith.
Reason for my post-happy Tuesday is due to, as the frogs say, being hors-de-combat from all the meds and that means sitting home and counting flowers on the wall instead of getting into trouble. Like I damned well should be doing.
Such as is the case with, say, police officers in New Orleans?
On and on we go with cops caterwauling whenever they espy another citizen capable of protecting himself.
Pitiful. Just pitiful.

"Yesterday, an American involved in the war effort handed me a document. It was an email from a Lieutenant Colonel in the 82nd Airborne Division in Afghanistan. His unit is in combat seven days a week. To be clear, I did not get the email from the officer and I have never met him.
The email is about the abysmal, unsafe conditions which some of our most dedicated troops are living in, at a remote base run by the Spanish military in Afghanistan. All deletions [xxx] are by me. I have the entire email. The serious and disturbing allegations are found in the second and third paragraphs.
Please note, that the failure to support permanent US troops at this Spanish base constitutes real negligence about their ultimate safety. And that comes on top of a degree of harassment that is shocking among allies."
The message begins:
I just finished spending a couple days with TF [xxx] at [xxx] and visiting all of our sites that we have troopers located at. Great progress continues to be made in the [xxx], but several items need some help ASAP:
[Para 1 deleted]
2) Qal E Naw: The Spanish are not interested in helping in anyway, and are trying to make us decide to leave based on their unacceptable treatment of Americans. Our refuelers [soldiers who refuel helicopters] that are living there have to run out, unroll the hoses, pull security, and roll everything back up. They have asked for gravel along the FLS as it is currently calf deep mud, but the Spanish refuse to make any improvements. They asked for a T barrier (just one) to put at a 45 degree angle outside the fence where the FARP [Forward Arming and Refueling Point; where helicopters land for ammo and gas] has to be set up so they can run for cover in case there is small arms fire, the Spanish say no and refuse to make any improvements. They asked for a small gate where their billets are located so they can access the FARP directly rather than going a half mile loop to get out the gate, but the Spanish said no and refuse to make any improvements. They [sic] guys are living hard (we understand that) but have to do laundry by hand as all of their stuff is stolen if they turn it into the laundry, they discussed this with the Spanish, but they refuse to many any improvements.
USFOR-A needs to energize someone to develop a viable, enduring plan for this FARP that isn’t reliant on the Spanish. This is a key hub for fuel (since we can’t get trucks to [xxx] or [xxx]) so let’s improve this location to better support those guys living out there on the edge by themselves. They refused to allow a Marine detachment that was dropped there to come into the wire or feed them overnight. Our refuelers had to fight the Spanish to bring them in and squeeze them into the two small tents that they have and give them MREs as they [sic] Spanish wouldn’t feed them. Is this how we allow our Coalition partners to treat Americans?
3) BmG: Who ever briefed that they have gravel there has never been there. We arrived during a TIC [fighting] and a MEDEVAC mission. The aircraft have to land/park in a field that has no gravel and then they sink into the ground. They have to be moved everyday to pull them back out of the mud. If we can’t get gravel, how about putting some AM2 matting, stakes and a couple of Red Horse guys on a CH-47 and fly them in to build a couple of pads just big enough to park an individual UH-60 on? We’ve been pushing the gravel issues since last fall and are no closer to a solution. Those guys are living in fighting positions. When it begins to warm up in the next month, that field will be untenable without gravel or AM2 matting. We don’t want to lose MEDEVAC capability there because we couldn’t put in two pads. We did a MEDEVAC [troop(s) wounded] and Hero [troop(s) killed] mission while I was there and the next day as well, let’s not forget that they are on the tip of the spear, we owe them more.
I would like to discuss these Saturday to see what the way ahead is going to be.
On that note, the email closes."
I could tell far worse horror stories about the treatment our troops receive from "allies" but voicing such scuttlebutt would break far too many rules of engagement.
Suffice to say I 'm shocked we haven't heard of lots more like this.

“I remember that when I was a small boy, say sixty years ago, snows were frequent and deep in every winter, to my knee very often, to my waist sometimes, and that they covered the earth long. And I remember while yet young to have heard from very old men that in their youth the winters had been still colder, with deeper and longer snows. In the year 1772, thirty-seven years ago, we had a snow two feet deep in the Champain parts of this state, and three feet in the counties next below the mountains . . .
“While I lived at Washington, I kept a Diary, and by recurring to that I observe that from the winter of 1802-03 to that of 1808-09 inclusive, the average fall of snow of the seven winters was only 14½ inches, and that the ground was covered but sixteen days in each winter on average of the whole. The maximum in any one winter during that period was 21 inches fall, and 34 days on the ground, the minimum was 4½ inches fall and two days on the ground."
Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to professor Nathaniel Chapman dated Dec. 11, 1809.
Guess old Tom didn't know that alla them cars and coal-fired power plants, and scazillions of folks using microwaves and sucking our energy resources dry while pumping untold unburned hydrocarbons into the atmosphere, were the true reasons for his bemoaning the loss of appreciably snowy winters.
None of them there stuff was around back then.
Just thank the powers that be that Algore wasn't alive. Tom's horses would have been fitted with methane barrier diapers.

"A Michigan boy reportedly has been suspended from school for curling his hand into the shape of a gun and pointing it at another student.
Erin Jammer, said her son, Mason, was just playing around when he made the gesture Wednesday, the Grand Rapids Press reported.
"I do think it's harsh for a six-year-old. He's six and he just likes to play. Maybe what you could do is take his recess away. He's only six and he doesn't understand any of this," Erin Jammer said.
But officials at Jefferson Elementary School said the behavior made other students uncomfortable, and they suspended Mason for the remainder of the week, the paper reported.
School officials also told the paper that Mason had been warned repeatedly against pretending to aim his hand at students but continued the behavior over several months.
Jammer told the paper her son isn't violent and doesn’t have toy guns at home. She suggested a less harsh punishment, like taking Mason’s recess away, might be more effective in teaching him not to make a gun with his hand.
"He's only six and he doesn't understand any of this," she said."
This is the same strategy that the Brady Bunchers are using in order to force Starbucks into making their places of business gun-free-zones.
The right to not feel uncomfortable. Coffee drinkers just might feel icky if they believe that fellow caffeine addicts might very well be...gasp...in possession of a firearm. The right to comfort, in their twisted little pea-brains, supersedes the right to self defense.
But at least the Brady's are focusing on adults, and not harmless 6-year-olds.
Sight unseen I do guaranfrickintee you this; the suspended child was NEITHER black nor hispanic nor a moslem.
Politically correct idjits wouldn't dare.
And not for nothin', but how dare they continue to name this den of stupidity the Jefferson Elementary School.
Old Tom would be rolling in his grave...

The U.S. Travel Association calls it a major step in addressing the drop-off in such visits to the U.S. during the past decade. The association says the U.S. welcomed 2.4 million fewer overseas visitors last year than in 2000. And that, the group says, has cost it an estimated $509 billion in total spending and $32 billion in direct tax receipts.
Government and private industry would evenly split the program's costs, with Washington contributing up to $100 million a year. That money will come from a $10 fee paid by foreigners who do not pay for visas to enter the U.S."
Yes, Barry signed yet another closed-door tax bill, one that will certainly assure a dropoff in tourism.
How does one know this?
Everything he touches turns to shit.
Probably why ACORN fired his incompetent ass, in order to shuffle him off to a different no-show job. Just like his wife. Whose position...the oh-so-IMPORTANT one with that politically correct hospital...has YET to be filled since her moving into public housing.

The people are against it, but as we all figured out long before this past election, democrats in general and Barry Hussein in particular don't give a rats ass what the people want because they happen to be so much smarter and therefore know better.
While the liberals threaten "nuclear option" perhaps it is time once again to introduce talks of secession to the discourse.
Let the states applauding nannyism's form their own union while the free states...let's use an arbitrary bellwether, hows about the right of concealed carry...can keep calling ourselves the United States of America.
And because I'm something of a history buff, what the hell was the Civil War all about?
Was secession legal?

These things are about as easy to make as a TV dinner.
All you need to start is a reasonably sized hardcover. All of the local dollar stores here have them. I forget how much but its cheap.
So here's what else:
1.) A book but we already said that
2.) Something with a sharp edge
3.) Elmer's Wood Glue
4.) Small paint brush
Now don't go following some stupid ass hobby-chat recommendation to use simple paper glue, or worse yet, hobby glue. Fill a 35mm film cylinder 3/4's of the way then add a teaspoon of water to make the stuff absorb quicker and easier. You could very well use the wood glue straight from the bottle but it'll take longer to dry and perhaps a page or two or three won't get coated because Elmer's is relatively thick. Choice is yours, this isn't rocket science.
You can use an exacto-knife if you don't happen to have man tools around but that'll take more time. Draw a line a half inch in from the outside edge and all around the page you'll begin cutting through. Save a few pages to better foster the illusion, but at least ONE.
Then take one of your sharper knives and begin cutting along the lines. If you've some grunt, 10 or more pages at a time can be dispatched with every completed square but don't feel like a pussy if you've no recourse but the exacto thingamajig. Women invented scissors, and drugged out Renaissance artists came up with the exacto-type blade because they were too stoned to trust a real knife for the work, so there's precedence for fucking off.
The book you've selected for this surgery should be capable of withstanding an inch and a half of intrusion; unless you're just looking for a place to stow those false eyelashes that keep disappearing. The choice is yours.
After cutting as deep as you want, cover the pages you'll be keeping, along with the front cover of the book. Aluminum foil or irritatingly useless plastic wrap or even wax paper will do the trick.
Use the paint brush to coat the outside edges of the pages you've just made that bodacious ass hole in. Lay it on thick. This stuff is cheap so there's no excuse to frig the job by being chintzy. Slather the facing of the front page with glue, then turn over that one page you've kept just for this. Make sure its reasonable afixed.
Then place the book down flat and put a weight on it to make sure everything stays together long enough to become one badass block of wood wannabe. I just dumped an old tool box on top, waited an hour or so then continued.
Open the front cover along with the other pages you've protected with the foil/plastic-wrap/wax paper. As long as that page you've placed directly atop the one you've been sawing through for the past few hours is really set in stone, then cut through IT to give yourself a brandy new first page that doesn't bear the marks and mess of your workmanship.
After once again being capable of peering into the hidey-hole, heavily coat the inside edges of all of those rendered page edges. Leave the cover open and if possible set aside the project to dry overnight.
Awaken to the glee of having your very own stash-thing, and if you're me, you place it on the table next to the front door. Inside* are at least a couple of mini-knives, not to be confused with a real knife but something for slashing through twine, cardboards, etc., a pen, the cell phone Lisa made you buy cuz traipsing through the frickin swamp without means of communication is just too dreadful to even imagine, a windup watch, and a set of your wife's extra car keys for when she locks hers inside the vehicle.
These things are such a snap I've made four of them the past few days and have Glock's and Ruger's and things impossible to identify on a blog the Feds could read on a whim.
Clicking the headline link will take you to a place that has pictures of some fairy trying to do the same thing. That's in case my instructions weren't intelligible. So go ahead. I'll avert my eyes.
