Missing The Target By A Country Mile...

Four Supreme Court justices make the case against constitutional rights...

 "On Monday the Supreme Court ruled that the Second Amendment applies to states and cities as well as the federal government. Judging from their objections, the four dissenters were still reeling from the Court's landmark 2008 decision recognizing that the amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms.

In their dissenting opinions, Justices John Paul Stevens and Stephen Breyer (joined by ("JOAN" is her REAL first name: Fits) Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor) worry that overturning gun control laws undermines democracy. If "the people" want to ban handguns, they say, "the people" should be allowed to implement that desire through their elected representatives.

What if the people want to ban books that offend them, establish an official church, or authorize police to conduct warrantless searches at will? Those options are also foreclosed by constitutional provisions that apply to the states by way of the 14th Amendment. The crucial difference between a pure democracy and a constitutional democracy like ours is that sometimes the majority does not decide.

...But unlike equal protection or freedom of speech, Stevens says, "firearms have a fundamentally ambivalent relationship to liberty." How so? "Just as they can help homeowners defend their families and property from intruders," he explains, "they can help thugs and insurrectionists murder innocent victims."

Every right can be abused, with results that are immoral, illegal, or both. Freedom of speech can be used to spread hateful ideas, promote pernicious political philosophies, slander the innocent, or engage in criminal conspiracies. If there were no potential for harm from exercising a right, there would be no need to protect it, because no one would try to restrict it."

Seemingly within minutes of the release of the dissenters opinion, fools such as Chuckie Schumer were quoting verbatim from their dissent, which should lead people of good will to believe that the dissenters were themselves quoting from that far-left gospel, created of course to minimize the Constitution as much as possible...BECAUSE...that's what the Constitution should be all about anyway.

Cannot have a "breathing, living, evolving, ever-changing" Constitution fer chrissake that doesn't even make mention of the RIGHT to ABORTION.

"They", meaning the Schumers of the country, like to quote Ginsberg, while "we" like to quote Jefferson, and "they" cannot even tell why "we" laugh in their faces so very often.

Revenge Of The Snerds

To my everlasting shame I've not been closely following the Ka-Gan (Japanese for "wife of Godzilla") confirmation hearings. I can't, I just can't stand looking at the creature. Born and raised in NYC, she reminds me of all of the big mouth ladies dying to be little men, "females" who wouldn't take the time to brush their own hair if it killed them. Invariably they were so far to the left they ran it off the road, and mostly because they felt some sort of tragic injustice in being an unattractive woman. The beatniks and the black guys loved 'em cuz they were an easy lay, giving it up to anyone with a smile.

They loved Chairman Mao and Stalin because they were ugly too, and at the same time swooned over Fidel. At the best of times women are contradictions to begin with, but these ladies were the poster children for mixed feelings. Because they traveled the side roads of society they became enamored of the anti-hero; time was when no matter who you were you didn't bash your own country unless it was at a communist party get together but that melded into the angry minority preacher meeting, the black panther meeting, even the Symbionese Liberation army meeting, all of them chockablock with villains looking for a "family" to call their own.

It's why Barack Obama's wife says she never ever was proud of her country until her husband was nominated for the presidency. Why Barry himself disses America at every turn. Angry people do nutty things but until this point in time America had never put them in the position to do serious harm.

Ka-Gan will be appointed an Associate Justice. The Repubs don't have the firepower nor the gumption needed to block her so yet another misfit ascends to the highest court in the land. Its never been this bad, but keeping fingers crossed that it is the black cloud itching to show off its silver lining.

November 2010, then 2012. We take it all back.

Connecticut Commie Coppers Nix Gadsden Flag....

A group of retired Marines is asking Connecticut's attorney general to allow the "Don't Tread on Me" Gadsden flag to fly over the state Capitol on July 4 after Capitol Police refused the request saying it doesn’t fall within the state’s flag flying parameters.

The group says the yellow banner, which sports a coiled rattlesnake and its trademark motto, is the original flag of the U.S. Marine Corps and clearly fits into the section of the policy which states that the Connecticut State Capitol can fly “flags of recognized military organizations of the U.S.A.”

But Capitol Police have denied several requests to fly the flag -- which has become a favorite nationwide among the Tea Party movement and a popular alternative to the stars and stripes – saying it is not the official Marines flag.

“The Gadsden flag was a personal standard used by one admiral during the Revolutionary War,” Capitol Chief of Police Walter Lee told “The Marine Corps never claimed that to be one of its organizational flags.

Hey, Wally...what're you on drugs or what?

The Gadsden Flag certainly IS one of the official organizational flags of the United States Marine Corps, but seeing as how you're a political appointee who owes his daily bread to the liberal shitheads in CT, my guess would be that shown a picture of George frickin' Washington you'd offer that since he's long dead he doesn't really count as being a former President anymores.

But since I'm a forgiving sort and fully understand the staggering debt that is breaking CT day by day by day and all but assuring Hartford's sale to the Chinese really really soon, I propose that Marines, active and inactive, send in a nickle apiece so's to keep the Keystone Capitol Coppers swimming in doughnuts.

Go ahead. THINK of alla them doughnuts and STILL say no.

As The Confirmation Hearings Begin, We Feature:

The Girls In Our Little Man's Life

After a time, a definable picture of one's personal preference becomes quite clear.

Not an accident when a man surrounds himself with so many unattractive (being kind) people. Stems from wishing to be the prettiest one in the room, and Barry has ASSURED that this is the case.

In spades.

Nation's Armpit First To Respond To Court Ruling...

As expected, Mayor Daley and Chicago's City Council are circling the wagons to defend against an unfavorable decision by the Supreme Court concerning the city's gun ban.

Daley said the city would have in place a new ordinance aimed at making it difficult to purchase and own a gun in Chicago. 

"We'll publicly propose a new ordinance very soon," Daley said at an afternoon press conference concerning the gun ban."

Little Dicky should perhaps strive to keep firearms out of the hands of criminals. Maybe. Might be at least worth a try.
Nah. Then who'd vote for him.

Creating a sub-species of slaves and sheep are what liberals are all about.

Supremes Get The Second Amendment RIGHT

"I do think the focus is our system of ordered liberty, not any abstract system of ordered liberty. You can say Japan is a free country, but it doesn't have the right to trial by -- by jury."

Chief Justice Roberts, in his retort to Justice Ginberg's assertion that: "a lot of free societies have rejected the right to keep and bear arms." 

Joanie...that's her REAL first name, not Ruth...was an early advocate of "women's rights", and would be the FIRST to screech to the high heavens were she to be told that since some OTHER countries do not allow women the right to vote, or drive a car, or show their hair in public even, then the U.S. should not either.

As is the case with most liberals, "rights" are only set in stone when they agree with them. And, when in doubt, always look for some other country's filthy justice system when wishing to invalidate ours. Look hard enough and one can find pretty much any stupid thing imaginable, which is the primary reason to...duh...follow OUR laws and frig the commies and parliamentary weak sisters.

The following heralds this breaking story, and for more information please click the headline link.

"In its second major ruling on gun rights in three years, the Supreme Court Monday extended the federally protected right to keep and bear arms to all 50 states. The decision will be hailed by gun rights advocates and comes over the opposition of gun control groups, the city of Chicago and four justices.

Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the five justice majority saying "the right to keep and bear arms must be regarded as a substantive guarantee, not a prohibition that could be ignored so long as the States legislated in an evenhanded manner."

The ruling builds upon the Court's 2008 decision in D.C. v. Heller that invalidated the handgun ban in the nation's capital. More importantly, that decision held that the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms was a right the Founders specifically delegated to individuals. The justices affirmed that decision and extended its reach to the 50 states. Today's ruling also invalidates Chicago's handgun ban."

Let's Get That Board Cut...Chop Chop

MANY of the contestants in these goings on are large-boned fella's with extra grunt in their messkit.

That as a given, soon they''ll have to switch to a stouter/thicker plank, as 2X4's are just no match for modern steels.

Liberal Canadian Media Strikes Out...

Is that an evil gun or are you just happy to see me. Eh?

"A June 22 article about G8 security measures in Huntsville incorrectly said that resident Steve Groomes has a gun at the ready should protestors get by the army of police and soldiers scouring the brushes. In fact, what Groomes said in a jovial way was that: “I’ve got an Easton 32 in the house.” The Easton 32 is a baseball bat not a gun. The Star apologizes to Groomes for this misunderstanding."

Nungesser furious with White House....

"Plaquemines parish president Billy Nungesser is furious, drawing a line in the sand with the White House!

The Obama Administration has aked for a halt on dredging sand berms off the Chandeleur Islands that just started last week, until the project can be relocated farther into the gulf. Nungesser fired off a letter threatening President Obama to step in and do something or face a tongue lashing on national T.V.
"Dammit, it took us long enough to get the permit now they are going to throw rocks at us. They all need to rot in hell for this."

Nungesser has been the face of the sand berm project, now he's red faced over the order for U.S. Wildlife and Fisheries.

"Some brilliant individual said we think a mile out is not enough it may scowl the island, or it may subside. So, let's shut it down."
Tuesday evening was the deadline to stop the dredging, to Nungesser it might as well have been high noon
"I asked the governor to let me stay out there tonight on the dredge, let em come out there and take the permit away.

Tell them the radio not working. We'll smash it with a hammer."
Nungesser is targeting President Obama as the only hope for continuing the work. In harsh letter he spelled out an option.

"Don't shut us down, let us lay the pipe three miles out and then let us move the dredge so we will be down less than a day and we'll refill the hole," Nungesser said.

He also issued a threat to the President in the letter if he didn't do something to help.
"It says if it shuts down, I'll be on Anderson Cooper at nine...and it won't be pretty."

 Why HASN'T the Obama administration taken this tragedy by the horns and wrestled it into submission?

"Never let a good disaster go un-tapped."

First off, the Governor of Louisiana is a Republican. Bobby J. simply CANNOT be seen as the savior of this mess. Then there's the hat-tip to the president's "base". The treehuggers WANT to see dead birds and fish and Conservatives, they WANT the whole world to watch while icky oil kills off the revenues from the Gulf Coast.

Why, if they'd only gone to windmills none of this would have happened!

And then of course there's the inherent incompetency attached to ANY democrat administration. They climb through the political ranks learning speechifying and little else, so how in all hell could we EXPECT them to know how to actually DO SOMETHING?

Widow of Houston Officer Killed by Illegal Immigrant 'Shocked' at ICE Appointment

The widow of a Houston police officer killed by an illegal immigrant was "shocked" to learn that the city's former police chief has landed a top immigration job with the Obama administration, her lawyer told on Friday. 

That's because Joslyn Johnson, whose husband, Rodney Johnson, was killed in 2006, is suing former Houston Police Chief Harold Hurtt for failing to enforce federal immigration laws. She claims her husband would be alive today if the city had bothered to check up on the gunman's immigration status.

Now that Hurtt is taking a job to oversee partnerships between federal and local officials with Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Johnson -- and other critics -- say they're concerned the official who resisted immigration enforcement in Houston will now be in charge of promoting it. 

"She was shocked at the irony," Johnson's attorney, Ben Dominguez, said. 

As a police chief, Hurtt was a supporter of "sanctuary city" policies, by which illegal immigrants who don't commit crimes can live without fear of exposure or detainment because police don't check for immigration papers. During his tenure as Houston police chief, he criticized ICE's key program that draws on local law enforcement's support. He said in 2008 that local police "don't want to be immigration officers." He described that as a burden on the force.

 So true. What the cops DON'T want to do is legend. Don't want to: be marriage councilors, dog catchers, doughnut gourmands...wait, strike that one, protectors, bad-guy-catchers, honest citizens,etc, etc.

Here's a clue, free of charge, pally; The cops DON'T decide what to do, WE do. If they can sit on their ass all day waiting for someone to go 5 mph over the speed limit on an open road in clear weather, then they can ask for a drivers license when someone doesn't speak ANY FRICKIN ENGLISH. 

They can pull you over on nothing more than a whim these days, ask for documentation up the yingyang, but CAN'T check to see if Mr. NO HABLO ENGLISH is here illegally?


And as far as the Hussein administration hiring an illegal-lover to be a honcho over at ICE, well dammitall what did anyone really expect to happen?

Hussein actually THINKING before he went and did something totally stupid?

Now THIS Was A Bad Idea

A Florida mother is being investigated after she posted a photo on Facebook showing her infant son apparently smoking a bong.

The photo shows the 11-month-old baby in a diaper, sitting on a carpet with his face leaning over the glass smoking pipe.

The baby's 19-year-old mother claims the pipe didn't have tobacco or drugs in it at the time, and that the boy didn't inhale any smoke. She says she posted the photo online as a joke to show one of her friends.

he picture was widely distributed around the Internet, and eventually landed on the desks of Florida child protection officers, who didn't think it was so funny. The state Department of Children and Families has launched an investigation into the woman's parenting skills, and says she could face charges if it's revealed that the child was exposed to drugs.

"We are alarmed that any parent would take pictures of their child next to what is obviously drug paraphernalia," department spokesman John Harrell said in comments carried by several news outlets.

The Florida TV station WJXT used Facebook messaging to contact the woman, who lives in Keystone Heights, northwest of Gainsville, and questioned her about the photo.

"If u look at the picture u can see that there is no bowl in the TABACCO pipe," she responded, with grammatical and spelling errors. "And i took a pic to show one (expletive) person and it was a mistake. I would never ever ever let him get high."

Whew. Well it's okay then.
Really had me worried for a while there.

Coming Soon...Double-Tap Copper Versus Gello

A few months back, I spoke of sending some new Double-Tap loads to Crazy Jay in Iowa, and in record time he is almost ready to send me some results.

There's a local range by him that sponsors shoot-some-gello days; you pays your entry fee then line up to have a go at ballistic gelatin blocks. At first I didn't see how he could pull it off, as Jay...stout-hearted and well met fellow that he is... cannot hit the broad side of a barn from the inside. But apparently he sucked it up enough to fire some .40 caliber 125 grain Barnes TAC-XP coppers zinging along at near on 1400 fps from his GLOCK 23.

All-copper bullets have regained some popularity, but they're pricey and that excludes law enforcement use so we don't know how they fare against: fire-hydrants, parked cars, passing city buses, newstand vendors, nuns on the way to church, low flying dirigibles, seniors waiting in line to cash welfare checks, household pets, or cripples in wheelchairs.

But we'll get some sort of glimpse about gelatin.

Abed, Mind You, 86 Year-Old Grandmother Tazed....BECAUSE,,,

...Cops Say She Took "An Aggressive Stance"

Police Tasered an 86-year-old disabled grandma in her bed and stepped on her oxygen hose until she couldn't breathe, after her grandson called 911 seeking medical assistance, the woman and her grandson claim in Oklahoma City Federal Court. Though the grandson said, "Don't Taze my granny!" an El Reno police officer told another cop to "Taser her!" and wrote in his police report that he did so because the old woman "took a more aggressive posture in her bed," according to the complaint.

     Lonnie Tinsley claims that he called 911 after he went to check on his grandmother, whom he found in her bed, "connected to a portable oxygen concentrator with a long hose." She is "in marginal health, [and] takes several prescribed medications daily," and "was unable to tell him exactly when she had taken her meds," so, Tinsley says, he called 911 "to ask for an emergency medical technician to come to her apartment to evaluate her."

     In response, "as many as ten El Reno police" officers "pushed their way through the door," according to the complaint.
The grandma, Lona Varner, "told them to get out of her apartment."
The remarkable complaint continues: "Instead, the apparent leader of the police [defendant Thomas Duran] instructed another policeman to 'Taser her!' He stated in his report that the 86 year-old plaintiff 'took a more aggressive posture in her bed,' and that he was fearful for his safety and the safety of others.

"Lonnie Tinsley told them, 'Don't taze my Granny!' to which they responded that they would Taser him; instead, they pulled him out of her apartment, took him down to the floor, handcuffed him and placed him in the back of a police car.

"The police then proceeded to approach Ms. Varner in her bed and stepped on her oxygen hose until she began to suffer oxygen deprivation.
"The police then fired a Taser at her and only one wire struck her, in the left arm; the police then fired a second Taser, striking her to the right and left of the midline of her upper chest and applied high voltage, causing burns to her chest, extreme pain and to pass out.

"The police then grabbed Ms. Varner by her forearms and jerked hands together, causing her soft flesh to tear and bleed on her bed; they then handcuffed her.

I for one expect nothing less from modern law enforcement, but hasn't this TASER deal run its course already?
How ANY man can attempt to justify Tasing an old her sickbed no beyond my comprehension, but one thing's for sure, they've established the weasel-word get out of jail free language clumsily disguised as official protocol, when its nothing other than business as usual.

Bad cops doing bad things to the community.

And fer chrissake enough with the TASER's.

Thursday Mornin' Funnies

Ann Coulter On Those Open-Minded Liberals

If New York liberals insist on bragging about their intellectual bravado in believing "nothing is sacrosanct," it would really help if they could stop being the most easily offended, P.C., group-think, thin-skinned weanies in the entire universe and maybe ease up on the college "hate speech" codes, politically correct firings, and bans on military recruiters.

With that in mind, here are some questions it would be fun to ask a New York liberal like Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan at her hearings next week:

-- Roughly one-third of Americans are Evangelical Christians. Do you personally know any Evangelical Christians? Name two.

-- In 1972, Richard Nixon was elected president with more than 60 percent of the vote, winning every state except Massachusetts and the District of Columbia. How many people do you know who voted for Nixon?

-- Appropriate or inappropriate: Schools passing out condoms to seventh-graders? Schools passing out cigarettes to seventh-graders?

-- Who is a greater threat to America, Sarah Palin or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad"

Now here is a hard one.

Define THE most intolerable people on the planet, if given, say, the choice between moslems and liberals.

Both never even consider the premise that they might very well be incorrect. About anything.

Both flaunt beliefs that run contrary to everything people of good will hold dear.

Both resort to violence whenever backed into a corner about their radical agenda's.

Neither listens to the will of the people they claim to represent.

Neither thinks that there are other folks equally smart, anywhere, in the solar system, galaxy, or maybe even the universe itself.

Neither bathes with anything one could even offhandedly describe as "regularly".

Damn this is just about a tossup, ain't it?

McChrystal Out...Questions, Questions...

Now that Petraeus is in charge, will former Senator Hillary Rodham be forced to once again "willingly suspend" her disbelief in order to believe him as she did when sharing the building with Barry?

When Petraeus was given the job in Iraq, then Senator Barrack Hussein Obama his confirmation hearings, so this begs the question as to whom will fall the task of not saying yes or no but waffle his or her ass off due to abject stupidity.

Yes, kids, it has come down to this.

We may very well be short of idiot democrat Senators.

Obama Issues Yet Another Vow To Plug The "Damned Hole..."

Maybe even all 18

Washington, D.C.  AP: Spotted on the golf course during the inauguration of golfs new "Sink A Putt For The Handicapped" program, President Barack Obama pledged yet again to work tirelessly in securing an end to the millions of gallons of crude oil pumping into the gulf.

"You might want to think of me as a modern day OJ," the President told hole-side reporters, "He traveled the globe looking for the real guy that killed his wife and I myself will leave no stone unturned in getting to the bottom of this problem and punishing the guilty party or parties. So what if he played a little golf along the way. Man's gotta let his hair down, know what I mean?"

Doctors Remove 4-Pound Tumor From Woman's Mouth

OCALA, Fla.  —  A Haitian woman who traveled to Florida to have a massive tumor removed from her mouth is on her way home.
Thirty-eight-year-old Lorette Pierre travels back to Haiti on Monday and will see her husband and six children for the first time since March.

Pierre had a four-pound tumor jutting from her mouth that made eating and breathing nearly impossible. Doctors at Halifax Medical Center in Daytona Beach were able to remove the tumor and reconstruct her lower jaw.

She's now showing off a smile that hasn't been seen for years.

Picture Credits: Taken before Miss Pierre's operation. A hospital spokesperson offered that no new photographs of Lorette are available, but they hope to soon remedy that by posting contrasting shots of how the brave lady went from horrifically can easily be seen in the pic below... to what they've described as quite attractive.

E. Pluribus Unum

One out of the MANY incredibly stupid, vapid, inane, trite, and at the end of the day INCORRECT banalities spewed by cliche-in-chief Barack Hussein:

“The one answer I will not settle for is the idea that this challenge is somehow too big and too difficult to meet. You see, the same thing was said about our ability to produce enough planes and tanks in World War II.” Barack Obama, live from the Oval Orifice.

Since the imposter-in-chief doesn't seem to know anything about history, let's be the first to tell him that NO ONE doubted America's manufacturing capabilities during WWII. The Japs banked on the incorrect presumption that their soldiers would be better fighters than ours, the Krauts believed their technology to be superior, but neither was dumb enough to say that America...the land of the never-ending assembly line...could not make lots and lots of stuff.

This is what happens when you elect an affirmative-action leader who was promoted to higher levels of learning predicated upon effort (PRESENT!) as opposed to results. But good Lord; do ya think the man would pick up a book now and then and actually learn something about something?

South Africa Debuts Anti-Rape Female Condom

...Ehlers, a 62-year-old physician, lab researcher and hematologist -- and a mother of two daughters -- spent the next four decades developing a female condom with jagged latex hooks that latch onto the skin of an attacker. Dubbed "Rape-aXe," the condom is inserted with an applicator like a tampon, and it clenches a man's penis and causes "immense discomfort" without drawing blood. It can only be removed by medical professionals, who are being familiarized with the device in order to contact South African police when they see one.

South Africa has one of the world's highest crime rates outside war zones, with 50 murders and 140 rapes reported each day, though experts believe the real number of rapes could be many times higher. A 2009 survey by South Africa's Medical Research Council found that 28 percent of men admitted to having raped a woman, and 20 percent said they had done so in the past year.
"Women should not need to artificially alter our bodies to prevent rape," Erin Matson, a vice president of the National Organization for Women, told AOL News in an e-mail interview. "Preventing rape requires educating women and men. ... By putting the focus on women's own anatomy, this product seems to use rape -- a serious crime -- to sexualize women even further."

A South African expert on gender-based violence, Lisa Vetten, said the device harks "back to the days where women were forced to wear chastity belts."

Now, right there is where folks of good will and honest intentions should draw the line.

The real world numbers are staggering; nearly a third of negro men in South Africa regularly rape negro women, so what in all hells are the ladies to do?

Why the NOW witch rep doesn't like the thing is fascinating, stupid... as any sort of cover garment is ALSO artificially altering the body... but fascinating, and the "expert" on gender based violence seems to think that protecting oneself is akin to having someone slap your privates under lock and key.

The problem I have is in the devilish device causing the rapist to get really-really angry then beating the living shit, or worse, out of the woman he's just violated. Sure, the guys we're talking about aren't the brightest bulbs in the chandelier (French for overhead lamp), but all these latex-grabbers really are are chinese fingercuffs expanded to fit a Tom, Dick or Harry. Slide it off nice and easy like, toss in an ouchie for good measure, then bop the lady for daring to do such a thing to your thang.

Since firearms of any sort are taboo, I'd vote for bear-strength pepper spray then running like hell. To find a machete.

McChrystal Soon To Be On The Carpet Again...

..For being truthful about the "wimps in the White House."

The top U.S. war commander in Afghanistan issued an apology late Monday for a "Rolling Stone" magazine profile in which he said he felt betrayed by the man the White House chose to be his diplomatic partner, Ambassador Karl Eikenberry, and comments by aides insulting some of President Barack Obama's closest advisers.

An article out this week in the magazine depicts Gen. Stanley McChrystal as a lone wolf on the outs with many important figures in the Obama administration and unable to convince even some of his own soldiers that his strategy can win the war.

"I extend my sincerest apology for this profile. It was a mistake reflecting poor judgment and should never have happened," McChrystal said in a statement."

Up until a month or so back, I'd been receiving Afghan sitreps on a daily basis. General McChrystal has all but put an end to the free flow of even unclassified materials from the theater, and while I won't talk out of school about specifics, what I have learned leads me to strongly believe that the General is losing this war.

The only way we leave Afghanistan without being defeated is to appoint a different commander, as it has become painfully obvious that General McChrystal cannot even swing a tie, let alone victory. Like I said, I've been itchy about this for quite a while but only now that it appears he may be leaving could I speak up.

I've never wanted to be proved wrong as much as I do right now. Senior NCO's can always tell. Good men are dying every day for all the wrong reasons. It's time to pull the plug or bring in a fighting man to lead the battle.

Good Thing Chicago Has Such Strict Gun-Control

8 dead among 52 shot across Chicago over weekend

 Eight people were killed and at least 44 others were shot across the city Friday night into early Monday, including a baby girl who suffered a graze wound to the neck when gunfire erupted at a Near West Side barbecue.

The dems created then maintained such a disastrous quality of life for their slavery victims, but the slavery victims continue to vote them into office, soooooooo...

Kinda seems like they pretty much deserve what they get. Excluding the kids. That's what fries my clams, the kids.

And not for nothing, but Father's Gone-Missing Day in Chicago has got to be one lonely ass holiday for those same children. The ones who survive their father's taking pot shots at them, that is.

What If.............Barack Obama Was President When The Titanic Was Going Down...

DATELINE.....APRIL 14, 1912.......

RMS Titanic has hit an iceberg and is sinking as we write this. STOP.

The SOS has gone out for ALL ships of ALL flags to head with flank speed for the stricken vessel. STOP.

Literally hundreds of men are perilously close to death as they valiantly cling to life after giving whatever lifeboat space was available to women and children. STOP.

The debris from floating detritus goes on for miles. Oil slicks...bodies...personal belongings....people still alive and pleading for rescue...STOP

This Just In.....

U.S. President Barack Obama has ordered the American Coast Guard to turn away rescue and cleanup vessels until it can be ascertained that they have the necessary permits to conduct such activities.



When asked as to why he didn't suspend normal operating procedures for the US Coast Guard during a time of extreme duress and immediate emergency, President Obama replied "PRESENT".

Lost In Narnia While On Way To Oz, Vlad Putin Somehow Manages To Contact The Media...

Prime Minister Vladimir Putin watched a test flight of a "fifth-generation" stealth fighter, dubbed the T-50 and billed as Russia's first all-new warplane since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.

"This machine will be superior to our main competitor, the F-22, in terms of maneuverability, weaponry and range," Putin told the pilot after the flight, according to an account on the government website.

"Bear Kills Man" Stories

CHEYENNE, Wyoming -- A grizzly bear killed a man outside Yellowstone National Park, apparently just hours after researchers trapped and tranquilized the animal.
The attack happened Thursday in the same place where two researchers with the Interagency Grizzly Bear Study Team had examined a large adult male grizzly earlier that day, Park County Sheriff Scott Steward said Friday.
The suspect bear was wearing a radio collar. Authorities didn't intend to venture into the woods to chase the animal, however.
They hoped to trap it -- again -- and do DNA testing to see if it was indeed responsible.
Shoshone National Forest officials closed off the Kitty Creek area, about 6 miles outside the Yellowstone East Entrance, until further notice.

 The victim was Erwin Frank Evert, 70, of Wyoming, who went hiking around 12:45 p.m. local time from his cabin in the Kitty Creek drainage.

When Evert didn't return, his wife went looking for him and met one of the bear researchers. The researchers had been getting ready to leave the area but one of them returned to the place where they had found the bear in a previously set trap, then tranquilized the animal for study.

The researcher found Evert's body where they had left the bear to wake up, about 2 miles from Evert's cabin."

Remember when Rangers would dash headlong into the woods, shotguns high, to off an offending bruin?

Looks like the Obama-Pussification-Factor™ has reached even the Parks Dept. fer chrissake.

Rhode Island: Keeping The Country Safe From Toy Soldiers Since... (insert date when idiots redefined political correctness to exemplify abject stupidity)

RI boy who made banned toy soldier hat gets medal

 EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. – A Rhode Island boy whose school banned a hat he made because the toy soldiers on it carried tiny guns was awarded a medal on Friday for his patriotic efforts.

Lt. Gen. Reginald Centracchio, the retired head of the Rhode Island National Guard, gave 8-year-old David Morales a medal called a challenge coin during an appearance on WPRO-AM's John DePetro show.
Centracchio said the second-grader should be thanked for recognizing veterans and soldiers.

"You did nothing wrong, and you did an outstanding job," he said. "We can only hope that kids of your caliber will continue to defend this country."

Centracchio also gave David a certificate that allows him to call himself a brigadier general.
David was assigned to make a hat last week for a project at the Tiogue School in Coventry. He chose a patriotic theme and glued plastic Army figures to a camouflage baseball cap. But school officials said the hat ran afoul of their no-weapons policy because the Army men held tiny guns."

Not one to criticize, cough, but we reallyreally need to keep these school "officials" as far away from  children as possible. Before they crank out many more ObamaCarters and the country makes the fall of Rome resemble a water balloon fight in comparison.

Memo To Barry: Leadership-101 Programs Are Offering Summer Classes...

President Obama addressed the nation on the Gulf oil spill, and told the American people how he has been doing all he can to “plug the damn hole” and whose behind he might kick.

Since his strategy dealing with the spill seems lacking thus far, Redstate editor Erick Erickson has compiled a Top 10 list of things to alleviate the disaster that Obama could have done but didn’t.

1.  Accepted help from the Netherlands when they offered it shortly after the accident.  The Dutch, experienced in the oil business, offered prompt help for oil skimming booms and plans to create barriers to stop the oil from infiltrating into wetland areas.
2.  Suspended the Jones Act, as President Bush did after Katrina, to allow foreign vessels into American waters to assist with recovery without having to swap ships and transfer equipment onto American flagged vessels.
3.  Suspended the Davis-Bacon prevailing wage laws, as President Bush did after Katrina, to allow rapid deployment of new workers to help with containment efforts.
4.  Suspended FEMA contracting and bidding rules, as President Bush did after Katrina, to allow a more rapid assignment of contracts to assist with the recovery effort.
5.  Allowed coastal governors to immediately begin dredging to create barrier islands.
6.  Talked to BP's CEO to establish initial metrics for progress to gauge BP's response so the federal government would have ascertainable metrics to determine when federal intervention was needed.  Heck, he should have talked to BP's CEO period.
7.  Not imposed a blanket deep water drilling moratorium, further crippling economies in coastal communities.
8.  Talked to experts about how to fix the problem instead of trying to figure out whose "ass to kick."
9.  Not waited to act lest he be seen as owning the situation.  Guess what?  He owns it now so why is he still on the golf course?
10.  Not have wasted time trying to blame the accident on George Bush before diving in to take responsibility.

Barack Hussein Obama wanted NOTHING to do with ownership of this problem. NO liberal democrat has EVER wanted to actually fix a serious dilemma, hell, they owe their very existence to keeping their constituencies barefoot, baffled, and the epitome of befuddlement.

Sane people of good will do NOT vote for the likes of Barry. And here I imagined Jimmy Carter to have forever ended the public's love affair with no-nothing grinning fools that pass the buck whenever possible.

Ann Coulter On The Curious Case Of Alvin Greene

" could a young African-American man with strange origins, suspicious funding, shady associations, no experience, no qualifications, and no demonstrable work history come out of nowhere and win an election?"

No, Ann isn't talking about Barack Obama. The democrats are all agog over the fella who won the South Carolina democrat primary, and some believe that Alvin Greene is really just a plant. 

It was okay when Barry showed up with strange origins, suspicious funding, shady associations, not a lick of real world experience or qualifications, and certainly no work or even educational history to call attention to. Because Barry was THEIR plant. Whenever someone comes along with little or no credentials the dems want to be the FIRST to do the meet and greet, and since they hadn't even heard of this guy are wondering how such a misfit could succeed without their help.

Not that they mind misfits. Hardly. Misfits are useful because all they have to do is read what they're told to read, pass the buck as often as possible, and never, ever, get pinned down on anything remotely resembling a real issue.

Just like Barry. But Mr. Greene hasn't asked the dems for help or money or even teleprompter instructions fer chrissake, so what's the real American Communist Party to do?

Simple. Sic Keith Olbermann on the guy. Little Keithy is even dumber than the usual dem, so simple things like facts never stand in his way and he'll attack someone whose work resume closely resembles Barry's but  not even NOTICE the contradiction.

New Hampshire Changes "Switch-Blade" Law...And Curiously Enough....

One-Third Of Confiscated Knives Are "Missing"

"On Wednesday, June 9, Abe Foote of Abe's Awesome Armaments in New Hampton, New Hampshire, was reunited with some of the knives the police had seized in a raid on his store. Foote was an unfairly prosecuted victim of New Hampshire's former restrictions on switchblade sales.

Unfortunately, approximately one third of the knives seized by the police remain unaccounted for, having disappeared from the evidence room. An internal investigation has been launched by the County Prosecutor. Knife Rights attorney Evan Nappen got the court order for the knives return."

More of the story...

"The New Hampton Chief of Police has asked for an internal investigation to be conducted after some valuable knives seized as part of a criminal case have allegedly been found to be missing.

Chief Merritt Salmon has filed a motion in Laconia District Court telling defense Attorney Evan Nappen of Concord that he has notified both the Belknap County Attorney and Belknap County Sheriff Craig Wiggin of the need for an investigation in reference to the knives that were seized from Abe's Awesome Armaments in New Hampton in June 2002, well before Salmon was named to head the department. According to Salmon's court filings, Wiggin indicated he in turn would be contacting the New Hampshire Attorney General's Office. On Friday, Wiggin confirmed he has talked to the AG's Office about the case.

Nappen represents Abram W. Foote, 50, of Tilton who is a federally licensed firearms dealer and who owns the Route 104 sporting goods store. Police seized the collection of knives after Laconia Police notified New Hampton Police that Foote had sold a switchblade style knife to one of its officers.

Nappen said his client believed that law enforcement was among those exempted from the ban that then made such knives illegal to possess or carry. That law has since been repealed.

So a cop goes in to buy a neat looking knife, then rats on the seller so his pals can "legally" clean the guy out of his stock. Such lowlifes, eh?

Good luck in ever getting those missing knives returned, Mr. Foote. Just don't hold your breath.

Obama Team Honors Sex Fiend

Only in the Obama administration would a public official sanctioned for a form of malfeasance be honored as a speaker by the same organization that sanctioned him. It helps, of course, when he is a self-proclaimed Friend of the First Couple. It also doesn't hurt that the administration already found it politically convenient to fire the inspector general, Gerald Walpin, who blew the whistle on his misdeeds.

Still, the public should consider it a brazen affront for this administration to feature Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson as a key speaker at a major conference sponsored later this month by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). Common decency should disallow such a scandal.

On the grounds of image alone, Mr. Johnson sends the wrong message, considering that four different young women or teenage girls have accused Mr. Johnson of inappropriate sexual conduct..."

I rarely speak about guns and knives and killin' them gators anymores because my focus has necessarily shifted to keeping you as enraged as is humanly possible. Enraged at Barack Obama, his no-show-job wife, and whenever possible, all the kings men.

The classless nobody is a tasteless thug. Racist, rambling, disrespectful ol' Barry isn't someone you'd wish to know, let alone hire to be in charge of a lemonade stand, but enough gals got all swoony and fell for his line just like they fell for, oh, say, Ted Bundy's, so here we are stuck with this monstrosity. Even worse, BOTH houses of Congress have pledged allegiance to the fag so there isn't a day goes by without decent folk doing their level best to erase this blot in the honor of America.

So then. The Obama's are propping up yet another felon. Mostly because he is black, but did I mention they're also quite the racists who rush to the aid of anyone who looks like them just because he or she looks like them?

That's what Chicago street thugs do. Why the moslems are so good at killing. So fer chrissake stay alert. Come November, a lot of his oomph goes down the drain but we've the big picture of Ought-12 to keep in mind too.

This Just In: Hezbollah Names Helen Thomas "Employee Of The Month"...

Hezbollah on Wednesday saluted veteran US reporter Helen Thomas's "courage" for her controversial comments against Israel, which sparked a furor and forced her to retire.
"Respected American journalist Helen Thomas's answer shows ... a courageous, bold, honest and free opinion which expresses what people across the globe believe: that Israel is a racist state of murderers and thugs," Hezbollah MP Hussein Moussawi said in a statement. 

When asked if Hezbollah officials would be contacting Ms Thomas personally, MP Moussawi was coy but did offer that her picture would be prominently displayed in the employee cafeteria, displacing that of long-time, multiple-repeat winner Barry Obama. 

More About The "Peace Flotilla"

The following radio exchange between the Israeli Navy and the Gaza flotilla offers something about the mindset of those on board.
- This is the Israeli Navy. You are approaching an area which is under a naval blockade.
- Shut up, go back to Auschwitz.
How absolutely charming, eh? And, dollars to doughnuts, someone in our very own moslem-loving president's white house will say something just like this and get away with it because the yellowstream media has his ass covered. That old fool of a reporter, the hag who finally was tossed out of the briefing room for telling the Jews to go back to Poland, well hells bells she's of Lebanese extraction so of course she hates the Jews too, and for some strange reason absolutely adores Barry Hussein.

Barry Still Fiddles Whilst The Coast Drowns In Oil

"Nothing more fully reveals the essential character of a person or group than a crisis. Thus, the ecological and political catastrophe of the Gulf oil spill has exposed a breathtaking level of incompetence, political opportunism and mendacity at the heart of the Obama administration. Documents obtained by the Center for Public Integrity make clear that the White House was told by the Coast Guard within 24 hours of the April 20 explosion on BP's Deepwater Horizon platform that the equivalent of 8,000 barrels a day could escape into the ocean. Within three days, Obama and his senior aides were warned that the spill could exceed the in environmental damage caused by the Exxon Valdez wreck in 1989.

Despite these warnings, over the next two months Obama attended Democratic fundraisers, played golf, hosted basketball and football teams at the White House and delivered commencement speeches. Two weeks passed before he could be bothered to go to Louisiana. On April 29, Louisiana Republican Gov. Bobby Jindahl declared a state of emergency as the oil spill covered 600 square miles and was only 16 miles from the coast. Jindahl begged federal officials for permission to build a massive network of sand berms to contain damage to beaches. Washington responded a month later but permission was only granted to build 2 percent of the berms requested."

Now, for a second, imagine a Republican President, or for that matter any REAL executive sitting on his laurels with a hardy dose of elitism, and performing like Barry Hussein with regards to the still gushing oil spill.
The Bush administration continuously asked what they could do to help Louisiana during Katrina, and when the real culprit was established...namely the total lack of anything remotely resembling efficient dikes and berms...rushed in the Army Corps of Engineers to do what the New Orleans politicians should have done long before it became such a disaster.

Then there's Barry. While the Governor of Louisiana begged for help, Barry's boys essentially told him to get back to them after they were done with their most recent series of golfing events.

And the liberal, Yellowstream media still covers his ass.


Japan Still Aflutter About What To Do With Alla Them Darn Marines In Okinawa...

Subtitle: Yes, Virginia, Trying To Take Over The Entire World DOES Have Consequences

"...under the world's only pacifist constitution, Japan spends about 1% of its gross domestic product on defense. But the Japanese — and especially the Okinawans, whose island was under U.S. control until 1972 and which currently hosts 75% of the U.S. military presence in Japan — have expressed growing irritation at what they perceive as their junior status in the relationship. Japan, they noted, has paid some $30 billion to the U.S. to support the U.S. military presence in Japan since 1978." 

I really like the Japanese people. Always have. Well, not back in the 50's when our movies (rightfully so) portrayed them as buck-toothed midgets intent on world domination, but as an adult (who says? Editor)
came to appreciate the sorryass fix modern Japan is in.

I like Japan for some of the same reasons I like liberals. Each new lunatic means, well it means our efforts weren't in vain. We managed to put America and Japan in so very safe a place as to make it possible that idiots who hate real freedom could prosper. People can actually feel so safe as to spit in the face of those who provided that safety, and that's what being a Marine is really all about anyways. 
Protecting the weak and enfeebled. Against those who for not much of any reason at all, would enslave, rape, murder and/or make them vote democrat. Look at it this way; the only claim moslems have to Jerusalem is that they believe it is where Mohammad's flying horse landed, took a dump, then whisked him off to Allah.

Put that on your Facebook wall and ponder it awhile.

Bottom line is it doesn't take much to stir the nuts of the world to a frothing frenzy, and someone has to stand in the way of them and our children and small animals. The French like having sex with both, the Asians like eating little dogs and cats, so it isn't really all that safe out there.

In a decade, without an American military force in Japan, there is no more Japan.

China still can't make anything worth a shit so where would our liberals buy alla their shiny new cell phones and big screen TV's from?


My AOL email is acting up, so sorry if you've sent mail and received no reply.

I've so very many addresses, contacts, etc with the AOL service...been a member since 1990...that changing over to anything else is not reasonable.

I may very well have to delete that email address...THAT they will allow me to do but not correct the problem...and begin another one for blogging, and stuff like that.

NY passes students who get wrong answers on tests

When does 2 + 2 = 5?

When you're taking the NY state math test. 

Despite promises that the exams -- which determine whether students advance to the next grade -- would not be dumbed down this year, students got "partial credit" for wrong answers after failing to correctly add, subtract, multiply and divide. Some got credit for no answer at all. 

"They were giving credit for blatantly wrong things," said an outraged Brooklyn teacher who was among those hired to score the fourth-grade test.

State education officials had vowed to "strengthen" and "increase the rigor" of both the questions and the scoring when about 1.2 million kids in grades 3 to 8 -- including 450,000 in New York City -- took English exams in April and math exams last month" 

Prollem wiff dat? Dont aks dont tell.

June 6, 1944

I was remiss in not remembering the significance of June 6, and will try not to let it happen again. Age happens.

Were such a fuckup to happen nowadays, commanding generals would be not only cashiered but hung. As always, it was the bravery of the common foot soldier that carried the day, and the war. Still and all, if Hitler hadn't been a crazy man the invasion would have been doomed. Rommel wanted one set of marching orders for German armor; because of Allied air superiority he wished to keep most of his tanks hidden until the actually invasion; while many other Third Reich'ers wished to stick with the tried and are our 10,000 tanks...come in and see us sometime. 

As usual, Hitler's compromise was so befuddled and far fetched as to make the German counter-attack a relatively feeble one. Eisenhower knew this, knew that Hitler would employ the Chinese-firedrill approach, and rolled the dice.

NRA News: BATFE Tightens Reigns On Gun Transfers...

In a recent ruling regarding the “transfer” of firearms, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms (BATFE) has reversed policies that have been in place for more than 40 years.

In the ruling, BATFE declared that a temporary shipment of a firearm by a federal firearms licensee to a non-employee for business reasons (such as a manufacturer's shipment to a gun writer or engineering consultant for a technical evaluation), will now be considered a “transfer” and require completion of a Form 4473 and background check.

This reverses a ruling issued in 1969, right after the passage of the Gun Control Act, although BATFE provided no explanation of the need for the change. According to the National Shooting Sports Foundation, BATFE hasn’t been able to name a single case in which a gun temporarily shipped under the old rule has been used in crime."

Well of course the BATFE wants even more paperwork in order to jam the system. First of all, it lends credence to their incessant caterwauling as to the need for more clerical and field help, B, they can now plead backlog whenever someone complains about tardiness even AFTER they get the extra hands, and thirdly, whats the use of working for a liberal government if you can't frig with gunowners?

Awaiting the White House raising one helluva stink about this.

Then taking my meds like I'm supposed to.

White Congressional candidate barred from debate with black candidates...

Liz Carter, a white woman from Georgia, has been barred from a debate for Congressional candidates. The reason? She’s white.

The forum, moderated by Newsmakers Live, is solely for the black Republicans and Democrats running for Johnson’s 4th Congressional District seat, Carter took to the Internet to say.
Carter, a Republican, expressed her disappointment on Twitter Wednesday, asking, “What happened to diversity?”
“We called them, we asked to participate,” said Carter’s campaign manager, Cheryl Prater. But she said Newsmaker Live’s event moderator, Maynard Eaton, told the campaign that because Carter is white, she’s only allowed to sit in the audience and not participate.
Thanks to the good guys at I Hate The Media for once again digging deep and exposing the absolute horror that has become American journalism. This is why my blog is named Shooting The Messenger, folks. 

The modern medium IS the message. And the modern liberal has long been aware of the power to use it to form a national consciousness.
