Hispanic Turnout...2010

  • Prior to the 2010 election, the Center for Immigration Studies projected that Hispanics would comprise 6.8 percent of the national electorate in congressional elections. The new Census Bureau data match this projection, with Hispanics comprising 6.9 percent of the vote.
  • Our projection was correct because it was based on the assumption that Hispanic turnout would follow past patterns and that they would be neither especially animated nor especially disengaged in 2010.
  • The 31.2 percent of Hispanic citizens who voted in 2010 is very similar to the 32.2 percent who voted in the 2006 mid-term election and the 31.2 percent who voted in the 2002 mid-term election. All of these values fall within the margin of error of ± 1.7 percentage points and indicate that 2010 was not unusual.
  • In addition to the 6.9 percent of voters who identified as Hispanic in the 2010 election, 77.5 percent of voters identified as non-Hispanic white, 11.5 percent as non-Hispanic black, and 2.4 percent as non- Hispanic Asian.
  • Hispanics are a much smaller share of voters than they are of the general population. In November 2010, Hispanics were 16.3 percent of the total U.S. population, 14.1 percent of the adult population, 10.1 percent of the adult citizen population, and 6.9 percent of those who voted.
  • The size of the Hispanic vote varied significantly by state. In 2010, Hispanics were less than 5 percent of the vote in 39 states plus the District of Columbia, and more than 10 percent of the vote in only five states (New Mexico, California, Arizona, Texas, and Florida).
  • Polling of Hispanics indicates that immigration is not one of their top issues. Like other voters, education, jobs, healthcare, and the federal deficit all rank above immigration in importance.
  • This does not mean immigration is unimportant to Hispanics. It does mean it was not an issue that was important enough in 2010 to have a discernable impact on their overall turnout.
  • Only 27 percent of Hispanic voters in the 2010 election were immigrants themselves (naturalized U.S. citizens) and just 14.9 percent lived in the same household as a non-citizen. The lack of direct personal experience with immigration may explain why the issue does not rank higher in importance to Hispanic voters.
  • CNN’s national exit polls showed that in 2010, 60 percent of Hispanics voted for Democrats and 38 percent voted for Republicans. This compares to 69 percent and 30 percent in the last mid-term election in 2006. If the failure to address immigration played a role in Hispanic voting, it seems to have helped Republicans.
  • However, the increase in the Republican share of the Hispanic vote in 2010 is almost certainly related to general voter dissatisfaction with the economy and the Democrats, and it parallels gains that Republicans made among many demographic groups.
So it would seem that, like most of us, those of Hispanic origin are certainly not one-note voters. The economy sucks, the democrats don't know what to do about it, and even though many Hispanics are pro-entitlements, 38% voted Republican in 2010.  For an even greater in-depth analysis...which is necessary to refute the democrat lie that they have nearly all of the Hispanic vote...please click the headline link.

In some ways, Hispanics are akin to the Jewish population of North America. Democrats are traditionally godless purveyors of smut and abortion, Hispanics are deeply Roman Catholic. Jews remain loyal to Israel, yet time and time again vote for democrat Presidents who do all they can to dismantle the Jewish State. Jewish guilt...and the fact that they continue to believe the Yellowstream Media... bade them to vote for Obama in 2008, but how Hispanics can tolerate baby killers remains beyond my powers to add or detract.

Memorial Day 2011

Today is the time we set aside to remember our war dead. Not a time of celebration or jubilation because what man of good will could even think of beating the drum on such an occasion.

What often confuses people is the manner in which the Yellowstream Media portrays this day. They do use words like celebrate because they have no honor. If you have to ask you'll never get it.

To my friends who've not made it to share this time, and to all the ones who came before us, Semper Fidelis.

On The REAL Memorial Day...

We Remember Our Fallen Military

Memorial Day is celebrated on the last MONDAY in May. Not, as Frost Cutlery would have you believe, on the last SUNDAY in May. Toddy-Gal-Boone opined that he hoped everyone had a safe Memorial Day, but since the offering came on a Sunday afternoon, the idiot, amongst the clutch of idiots who didn't even know any better to correct him, is a full frontal example of what grifters are and what grifters do.

Namely, take any opportunity to sell you a pig in a poke regardless of how inappropriate it might be.

I'll post more on Memorial Day later. Just needed to get my anger at these punks out of my system.

Might Be A Connection?

We purchased close to half a million AR-15's in 2009, and 2010's sales will most likely be in excess of that number.

Violent crime decreased by close to 5% from 2009 to 2010. But yes, the black/ spanish inner city gangs killed and raped and mugged as much as ever, yet they mostly kill one another lately because...

Wait for it...wait for it...

The general populace isn't as sheep-ish as it once was. Personally, I tire of hearing law enforcement get all the credit particularly since they themselves commit more criminal acts year in, year out; but I have a sneaky suspicion the Yellowstream Media isn't going to give us any kudos so pat yourself on the back, America. Ya done good.

The Further Adventures Of Doric and Limps...Or Maybe Limps and Doric

I can remember a day when we had far better rations than this crap.

Times change, Doric.
Funny, Limps.
Funny? What's funny Doric?

Time. Time is the one thing in all the universe that doesn't change. Time is the leech, the sapper of spirit that holds the world in its steaming gut and asks everything else to wither away while time itself remains untouched.

That does it, Doric. Now you're frightening me.
Limps, frightened? What would bring the mighty Limps to his arthritic knees?
Not that sort of frightened, Doric. Just the thought that after all this time you're all the way and then some to insane.

There you go again with time, Limps. Didn't I just tell you that...
That seals it, I'm going down by the river, Doric.
What's at the river, Limps?

A river, you idiot. Swift flowing water, jumping fish, cool breeze, memories of fishing with my brothers. What man needs a reason to go sit by a river?
If you need to take a piss then go take a piss, Doric. I promise not to look. Swear that when I meet Old Crutch I'll spit in his eye if I do.

Not even Old Crutch could stand having you around for long, Limps, so that's not an oath to hold a man's honor to.

So you are going to take a piss. Go ahead. Piss in the river while remembering your even dimmer-than-you brothers, who, while long gone, would never think to make an excuse just to hide taking a piss.

This time you're going too far, Doric. Mentioning my dead brothers is going to get your pate rattled...

Oh stop already with time, Limps...there is no time you blithering...hear that?

Hear what?
Something's moving down by the river.
I don't hear anything Limps.
Well something's moving.

What's it sound like?
Sounds like your nerves are fraying, Limps.

And I shouldn't be unraveling, Doric? Do you have any idea what this place is going to look like tomorrow?
Yes I do, Limps, but far be it for me to cut you off when you're on a roll...

When true dawn awakens the valley those hills will look like they're crawling with dungbeetles, Doric. But they ain't bugs they'll be the Stitch jockeying for who gets to die first.

For who gets to die...

Yeah, just like I said. Even as we sit here blowing smoke out our asses the Stitch are looking to cut the throats of potential rivals to see who gets to impale himself first on our outer spike wall. The glory of being a twitching, screaming slab of cooling meat for one's brother to gain a foothold over the spikes is to them an honor above most anything else, Doric.

And then there's the fire pits, Limps...

The fire pits, sure. 20 spans wide and 10 deep. Them who missed the glory of being skewered on the spikes will try and outrace the rest to be the first into the pits. Line upon line will throw themselves in until the pits are full of well done Stitch so's the rest can walk across without a by your leave.

That's still over 200 paces away, Doric, and then our longbow-men can begin.

And those boys can hit what they aim at, Limps, no doubt about it. But how many bows do we have? Less than a thousand last time I heard. But okay, so they start thrumming them bowstrings like a drunken bard at Springwell Fest, and even more bodies pile up.

And that blocks the way for more of the oncoming Stitch who'll be full of arrows and burning feet, Doric, so then our crossbow's get to open up and hit the easier targets, right?

Right you are, Limps. I wouldn't want to be them for all the rum in Easthaven. But if you take the time to do the paper ciphering, and all them arrows used up, that still leaves more than twenty thousand screaming, frothing, stinking Stitch hitting our front lines right about the time most of us will have shit ourselves half blind.

Twenty thousand against eleven isn't a betting man's odds, Doric, but they'll be exhausted and pretty much sucking old Crutch's farts after running all that way, right? And the cavalry will flank the ones in the rear too, you have to think about that.

We have less than 300 calvalrymen, Limps, and tell the truth now, how many of them can really ride? Really ride and swing a sword, Limps. Ride and swing a sword and stay in the saddle?

Better than no cavalry at all, Doric.

I agree, Limps. So our cavalry by mistake takes out an even number of Stitch, or lets be magnanimous and say five to six hundred. Say they even create all sorts of havoc in the ranks, but the Stitch are born in havoc, live in havoc, attack in havoc, and fight and die in havoc. Just like the spikes and the pits, they'll be jostling to be the first one run down by a horse. You've seen a Stitch before, right, Limps? How much more does a horse weigh?

They're not that big, Doric.

Close enough, Limps, close enough. Anyway, I think I'll go down by the river.

Want some company, Doric?

Why not. Just don't piss anywhere near where I'm drinking, Limps.

Why AREN'T Liberals Clamoring For Obama's Impeachment?

It’s been 66 days since President Barack Obama authorized military action against Libyan dictator Muammar Gaddafi. However, last Friday marked an important date, signaling Congress most authorize the military action or U.S. forces will be required to withdraw in accordance with the War Powers Resolution.

But that date passed with little fanfare, especially from a Democratic Party in Congress that was very vocal about former President George W. Bush’s incursion into Iraq. On Laura Ingraham’s Thursday radio show, Washington Post columnist George Will emphasized that despite the law not being popular in this and previous administrations, it is still the law of the land.

“Even if you think the War Powers Resolution, which requires certain reporting duties of the executive and sets a limit on American intervention, absent of congressional approval – even if you think the War Powers Resolution is an unwise law – it is a law,” Will said. “And this president like all presidents since it was enacted in 1974 have disliked it and have only acted as they said, ‘consistent with it.’”

And Will explained that even Bush had obeyed this law and he speculated that had this been George W. Bush leading an incursion into Libya instead of Obama, there would be liberals trotting out the idea impeachment for Bush.

What remains one of the more fascinating aspects of the liberal  mind, is the fact that they are STILL calling for George W. Bush to be impeached. Not that they ever note even one impeachable offense, mind you, but keep nagging and whining and sobbing over fantasy's such as Bush's imaginary involvement in September 11th.

Oh yeah, before I forget; Laura Ingraham's mere broaching of the subject resulted in one liberal chatterbox...Ed Schultz of PMS-NBC... to call her a slut.

Simply impossible for them to discuss ANYTHING on an adult level, isn't it? If you dare to disagree you are a racist, troglodyte who is better off dead.

Sans Teleprompter...Obama Botches Toast To Queen

Moron Proves Why He Wasn't On The Royal Wedding Guest List


President Obama botched his toast to the Queen on Tuesday night, delivering his remarks at the wrong time, awkwardly resulting in no one drinking from their glasses.

"Ladies and gentlemen, please stand with me and raise your glasses as I propose a toast. To Her Majesty the Queen," the commander-in-chief said at the Buckingham Palace state dinner. Then, the orchestra -- apparently thinking Obama was finished -- began playing "God Save the Queen."

Instead of waiting for the British anthem to finish, Obama plodded through his toast, quoting Shakespeare and praising the relationship between Britain and the U.S. But when he raised his glass, no one else followed suit, as the band played on.

The Queen merely glanced in Obama's direction while others stoically looked ahead. Obama nervously placed his glass back on the table and waited for the song to end, at which point the Queen raised her glass.

This is the guy who was going to charm the rest of the world into liking us again.

Laughing at us maybe, liking us, not a chance. Virtually every newspaper in Britain is vilifying Barry for being such a dumbass putz.The world might at times have doubted George W. Bush's level of sophistication, but never called into question his sincerity or the lack of the necessary intelligence quotient to string together more than two words without some sort of prompting.

And one thing old George NEVER did was travel with a fatass ugly woman who listened to and extolled the goodness of cop-killer-rap.

Students Suspended For Wearing White Shirts To School

Soquel California High School suspended at least two students. The students say it’s because of allegations, they’re part of a white supremacist group.

ONE of the stranger things about this is...one of the kids is Asian.
But how can this be, you ask?

Simple. California hates Asians. More so than even Marine combat veterans.*


Thanks to Anonymous here's a video of the Asian young man speaking on the subject.

Pants On Fire

"The President does not have power under the Constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual or imminent threat to the nation. In instances of self-defense, the President would be within his constitutional authority to act before advising Congress or seeking its consent. History has shown us time and again, however, that military action is most successful when it is authorized and supported by the Legislative branch. It is always preferable to have the informed consent of Congress prior to any military action."

Candidate Barrack Hussein Obama in a 2007 interview with the Boston Globe.

Even Though There ARE NO Oil Company Taxpayer Subsidies...

Barry And His Clueless Minions Continue To Make Believe So To Pander For Votes

Obama frequently says Americans “need to end our $4 billion in annual taxpayer subsidies to oil companies.” The latest Democrat bill would have repealed some $2 billion of what Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) and others call “subsidies” and “special tax breaks” for Big Oil.

That’s baloney – shameless demagoguery that will inflict further damage on our struggling economy.
Subsidies are cash payments from government to the private sector. Money is taken from the 51 percent of Americans who still pay income taxes – and transferred by legislators and bureaucrats to companies and activities that “deserve” or “require” these wealth transfers, because the recipients perform an important service and/or could not remain in business unless subsidized with other people’s money (OPM).

The petroleum industry does not receive “subsidies” to produce oil and natural gas. It doesn’t even get “special tax breaks” or outright tax credits. What are falsely described in these terms are actually tax deductions for costs incurred by companies in the process of exploring, drilling, producing and refining the oil and natural gas that energize this nation’s economy and living standards.

These tax deductions are equivalent or similar to deductions claimed by every US business, large and small, for things like facilities depreciation, equipment, utilities, payroll, and research and development. They are intended to ensure that businesses, like individuals, recover their costs and get taxed only on their net incomes. For oil companies those deductions include:

• Geological and geophysical costs, for exploration to assess prospects prior to drilling;
• Intangible drilling costs – equipment, labor, fuel and supplies associated with drilling expensive wells;
• Expensing “tertiary injectants,” water and chemicals injected into older wells to keep them producing;
• Domestic manufacturer’s deductions of up to 6 percent of income earned from extracting oil and gas (farmers, manufacturers and other producers can deduct up to 9 percent of earned income);
• Percentage depletion allowance, allowing for gradual recovery of up-front investments in a petroleum (or iron, gold, limestone, et cetera) deposit that is gradually extracted and depleted. The allowance is not available to “integrated” companies that produce, refine and market oil.
White House, congressional and eco-activist claims that repealing these deductions will generate “billions in new revenues” reflect an abysmal grasp of basic business, economic and behavioral principles.

Legitimate tax deductions are hardly subsidies, but always remember that the Obama crony-crew has such a difficult time figuring out what taxes are that most of them disremember to pay THEIRS

Using that as a bellwether, I guess we can say that the crooks on Obama's staff who've been found to be tax cheats are simply being subsidized by the American people. Affirmative Action is one thing; even more special rules for special people is another...that's okay but legit deductions are verboten. Now I see.

Disney Abandons Trademark Application For "Seal Team 6"

Disney said Wednesday that it plans to withdraw its trademark application for the term, “SEAL Team 6,” which was filed with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office two days after the killing of Osama bin Laden by the Navy’s SEAL Team 6.
For its part, the Department of the Navy also filed an application to trademark “SEAL TEAM” and “Navy SEALs” on May 13, as a “collective membership mark,” since the terms are used “to indicate membership in an organization of the Department of the Navy that develops and executes military missions involving special operations strategy, doctrine, and tactics,” according to the filing.
A spokesman from Disney told the Wall Street Journal that it planned to withdraw the application “out of deference to the Navy.”

Since Frost Cutlery has already been using "Seal Team 6" to sell its Chinese potmetal, I've sent several emails to various oldtimers in the Navy to see if I can stir up some payback against these grifters. Probably won't come to much until the trademark is signed, sealed, and delivered but they can't say they weren't warned.

Ray Lewis Warns Of Crime Wave If NFL Season Is Locked Out...

On ESPN’s “Sportscenter” on Sunday night in an interview with Sal Paolantonio, Lewis — who was referred to as one of the three most influential players in the NFL, along with the Indianapolis Colts’ Peyton Manning and the New England Patriots’ Tom Brady — addressed the possibility of a canceled 2011 NFL season. The main threat according to Lewis? Pride.

“We really got to remove pride, seriously,” Lewis said. “[C]ome on, there’s no other reason the issue is going on. That’s why I don’t get into worrying and a lot of all that other stuff because it takes away from life itself. Man, there are people who is really struggling – for real. There are real struggles out there.”
Lewis said a lockout would impact more than just NFL players.

“What we’re going through right now, we’re affecting way more than us,” he said. “Too many people live through us. People live through us. Walk in the streets the way I walk in the streets.”
And according to Lewis, one of the major results of lockout would be an increase of evil, which he says will come in the form of more crime.

“Do this research if we don’t have a season — watch how much evil, which we call crime — watch how much crime picks up if you take away our game.”

I agree 100%.
If the NFL players aren't held in check they most certainly would contribute to the crime rate, so giving them something else to do other than rape, rob, and beat up their wives is in the public interest.

Frost Cutlery: Back To Their Old Deceitful Ways...

"Now, we only have 500 of these custom knives left so git yer order in..." 

Stuttering Todd Boone

See, if you don't stay on top of them they fall back to their lying, thieving ways. 

It is impossible to have 500 of anything and call it "custom". But so far, and we're only into Cutlery Corner for an hour, its been an even dozen times Stuttering Toddy has referred to something as custom when they most certainly are not. For going on a month or thereabouts they'd been using "limited edition" to get the rubes to fork over their hard earned buckeroonies for potmetal, but since Todd has the memory of a ballpeen hammer he was bound to revert to normal.

Especially when Queen James is nowhere to be found. Stuttering Todd does his coughing, throat-clearing, sighing, forgetting the products name and/or item number geek show and it'd be far more entertaining for him to simply bite the heads off of some chickens to keep the Fudds a'watchin' because nobody likes an unprofessional, uncaring pitchman who all but picks his nose on screen. 

Past time for Queen James to put his foot down. Or better yet, up Toddy's ass.

And not for nothing, Stacey Combs who does the "customizing" for Frost is without a lick of talent. His scrimshawed knife handles resemble 3rd grade coloring books after blind children have had a go at 'em...with of course sincere apologies to blind children for mentioning them in the same breath with Mr. Stacey Combs.

And PS: There is no such a blade design as the "Worn Cliff" or "Warn Cliff" as Frost Cutlery advertises. Wharncliffe was of course the British Lord Wharncliffe who designed the blade circa 1822. You would think that a knife seller..who after all ships millions upon millions of knives a year and has been in business for over 40 years...would know a little about knives.

He does not. If it wasn't a Case design Aunt Jimmy wasn't interested back when he started the grift, and today if it isn't a TACTICAL he hasn't clue-one. He's smart enough to steal the designs of real knife-makers so one would imagine he or someone affiliated with him could read and write well enough to spell on the level of a 4th grader.

Doesn't seem so.

The knife pictured is a Rick Hinderer rendition of a Wharncliffe; priced somewhere along the lines of $400 and most certainly is no way shape or form associated with the potmetal offerings of Frost Cutlery.

Two Strikes For Barry

When reached via cell phone immediately after President Obama’s speech urging a Palestinian state based on 1967 borders, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's spokesman Mark Regev sounded as though he had been slapped in the face.

Netanyahu swiftly rejected Obama's call for Israel to pull back to the borders that existed before the 1967 Six-Day War. Roughly translated from Hebrew, a statement from the Prime Minister’s office said that they appreciated Obama's commitment to peace, but called the pullback to the 1967 borders "indefensible," and said that the Palestinians were less than an honest partner in the peace process. 

While the idea of using the 1967 borders as a starting point to negotiate land swaps for a final peace deal is not new, hearing an American president use those words sent chills through the Netanyahu government, which is loathe to even think the words “'67 borders.” 

Every Israeli television channel carried the speech live and commentators did not have to wait for a formal reaction to the speech to comment that Netanyahu and his right-wing coalition government would feel both blindsided and abandoned by a U.S. administration that has never been viewed as a friend. 

Speaking with Fox News immediately after the speech, former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Dore Gold called the speech a “a radical shift in U.S. policy.” 

This is an easy one. Palestine is a geographical location and not a country. What is the monetary unit of Palestine? There is no monetary unit of Palestine. What constitutes the basis of its economy? Charity. Prior to 1967, what did the Arab world call Palestinians? Jews. What is the official language of Palestine? Many. There is no "official" Palestinian language.

And on and on. The Arab world dumping their criminals and insane into one tract of land to form "Palestine" is what gave Castro the idea for the Cuban Boat Lift.

Therefore, there can be no definable border for Israel and Palestine, as there is no such a country as Palestine.

Strike Two

Senate GOP Marks a First - Blocking an Obama Judicial Nominee

Democrats needed 60 votes to move the nomination forward to final passage. Senate Republicans on Thursday toppled the nomination, 52-43, of controversial University of California-Berkeley law professor Goodwin Liu, nominee for the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, a first in President Barack Obama's presidency.
In the end, only one Republican voted for the nominee, Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska. Nebraska's Ben Nelson was the lone Democrat to oppose Liu. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, a former chairman of the Judiciary Committee, chose to vote "present," a sign of his long-time opposition to judicial nominee filibusters. Democrats needed 60 votes to move the nomination to final passage.

GOP Leader Mitch McConnell said the nominee's writings "reveal a left-wing ideologue who views the role of a judge not as that of an impartial arbiter, but as someone who views the bench as a position of power." And though the Kentucky senator said he has "nothing against (Liu) personally, "Earning a lifetime appointment isn't a right, nor is it a popularity contest."

Liu has been on every patriots hit-list as being a socialist scumbag having no business earning a living as a judge. Good job, and a good day when anyone stands up to our Emperor-in-Chief.

Pentagon Asks Media To Keep SEAL Members Secret

Responding to safety concerns from the elite troops who killed Osama bin Laden, the Pentagon asked media outlets on Friday not to report their identities if the names somehow leak out.

Defense Department officials fear that the Navy SEALs and other special operations personnel who conducted the raid, as well as family members, could become targets of al-Qaida members or sympathizers seeking payback for the mission in Pakistan.

“There has been such interest in this story, and a lot of probing into details regarding this operation, that there would be concern that someone might reveal the identities of people who were involved,” said Pentagon spokesmen Col. David Lapan.

Believe it or not, the DOD isn't as worried about what the taliban will do, so much as what American lefty lunatics will, but can't just come out and say it. There are enumerable commie politicians who'd spit out the names and addresses of each and every member of ST6 just for a chance to be praised in the HuffPost and/or by the KosKids.

Recon Marine Awarded Navy Cross

ARLINGTON, Va. -- Gunnery Sgt. Brian M. Blonder shot and killed an insurgent who was aiming a rocket-propelled grenade at his Marines. After that, Blonder and his Marines averaged killing one insurgent about every 10 minutes.

At the end of an all-day fight, more than 50 Taliban were dead, scores were retreating, and the Marines took control of a key supply route through the village of Shewan, Afghanistan.

Blonder said it was what he came to do, and it’s what Marines do best – kill the enemy. And his unit did that exceptionally well that even though the Taliban outnumbered the Marines roughly eight to one.

For thriving in the face of danger, Blonder, a native of Deer Beach, Fla., was awarded the Navy Cross during a ceremony at the Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington, Va., May 10. Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus presented the award and said Blonder is “one of the most selfless and disciplined Marines” he’s ever met."

I don't post every instance of a Marine being awarded a Cross or MOH but Gunny Blonder is one squared away jarhead.

The sort of Marine that, when the shooting has stopped, is sad that there are no more enemies of America left to kill.

Raising taxes on the rich lowers the government's revenues

After Maryland raised its tax rates on people making a million dollars a year, there were fewer such people living in Maryland -- and less tax revenue was collected from them.

In 2009, many people specializing in high finance in Britain relocated to Switzerland after the British government announced plans to take 51 percent of high incomes in taxes.

Conversely, reductions in tax rates can lead to more tax revenue being collected. After the capital gains tax rate was cut in the United States in 1997, the government collected nearly twice as much revenue from capital gains taxes in the next four years as in the previous four years. Similar things have happened in India and in Iceland.
There is no automatic correlation between the direction in which tax rates move and the direction in which tax revenues move. Nor is this a new discovery.

Back in the 1920s, Secretary of the Treasury Andrew Mellon pointed out that people with high incomes were simply not paying the high tax rates that existed on paper, because they were putting their money into tax shelters.
After the tax rates were cut, as Mellon advocated, investments flowed back into the private economy, producing higher output, rising incomes, more tax revenue and more jobs. The annual unemployment rate in the next four years never exceeded 4.2 percent, and in one year was as low as 1.8 percent.
Despite political demagoguery about "tax cuts for the rich," in human terms the rich have less at stake than working people. Precisely because the rich have so many ways of avoiding taxes, a high tax rate is likely to do them far less harm than it does to the economy, on which millions of people depend for jobs.

Think about it this way; letting wealthy people keep more of their money is akin to a reverse, and GOOD pyramid scheme. Their cash spreads to other people who spread it to other people, ad infinitum, but...that means allowing John Q. Public to decide how the country's finances are run, and not some politician who is just dying to build that next bridge to nowhere. And yessiree, the people to whom the money flows pay MORE taxes in the long run so the government STILL makes out like a bandit, but to the liberals, you see, it is the principle of the thing. THEY KNOW BETTER how to spend your money.

Open-Carry In Philly...Legal But Don't DARE Let A Cop Catch You Doing It

Open-carry is legal in Philly. The single biggest reason folks don't exercise the RIGHT is fear of the cops doing what they did to this fella, and thanks to Lem for bringing it to our attention.

Here in Florida, there are perhaps 3 weeks out of the year one can get away with wearing a cover garment without asking for heat stroke, and that makes concealed carry more difficult to say the least. Two decades ago, the cops were screaming bloody murder that carrying concealed was going to mean BLOOD RUNNING IN THE STREETS OF DODGE CITY and fought CCW with a vengeance. Now its the opposite. Open carry means blood running...you get the picture.

"Hey Junior what do ya think you're doing you can't open carry in Philadelphia!..."

The first 6 or 7 minutes tells most of the story, then the cops huddle to decide what else they can charge the guy for since open carry is legal. None of it makes a lick of sense in a free society. Having a cop so dumb and ignorant and knowing nothing of the laws he has sworn to uphold; nor his fellow officers aiding and abetting this crime.

Harmon Killebrew: 1936-2011

 MINNEAPOLIS -- Former Twins slugger Harmon Killebrew, whose legacy off the field was as impressive as his accomplishments on it, passed away Tuesday after a battle with esophageal cancer. He was 74.
As you can see from the pictures, Killebrew wasn't the type to swat at the ball and let his top hand fly free. Only Punch and Judy hitters batted that way and no one came to see The Killer dink one into the outfield. 

When the Twins would play the Yankees we'd get to the Stadium as early as possible to see Mantle and Killebrew take batting practice and I can't remember a time we went away disappointed. The deepest part of left center was 465' from the plate and it took one helluva power hitter just to reach the old monuments that were actually in play. Generally speaking, the better the hitter the more he hits the ball straight-away and both Harmon and Mickey would make 460'outs that'd be homers in any other stadium. 

But in batting practice they gave the crowd what it came for and balls would be flying all over the upper deck, bouncing off the old iron support beams and making the old ballpark the world's largest pinball machine.

The great #3. No one then or now hit the ball any harder.

More Dem Thuggery On Parade...

....Back in Wisconsin, the state attorney general's office last week released documents and audio recordings of some 70 threats against state officials. 

Among the most outrageous was an e-mail allegedly from schoolteacher Katherine Windels, which read: "Please put your things in order because you will be killed and your families will also be killed due to your actions in the last 8 weeks. Please explain to them that this is because if we get rid of you and your families then it will save the rights of 300,000 people and also be able to close the deficit that you have created. I hope you have a good time in hell."

She's been charged with two felony counts, including a bomb threat.
The controversial collective-bargaining law itself is in limbo, thanks to a restraining order issued in March by a judge in Dane County, where Madison is located. The ludicrous grounds: a claim that Republicans didn't give the public "proper notice" for a March 9 meeting that cleared the way for the bill's passage.

I had to Google the slovenly fatass witch so that anyone so inclined might look upon the face of your average run of the mill democrat from Wisconsin. CBS News picked up on the story, as well as the NY Post from which snippets of the article appear here, but I couldn't find anything in the Times or The Washington Post but you can bet your bottom dollar if a Tea Party member had done something similar it would have been front page news.

National Labor Relations Board Tells Boeing To STFU

Every American should be afraid when their government tells them to keep their mouths shut. This is especially true when the subject relates to a matter of national public policy.

On Monday, Lafe Solomon, acting general counsel of the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB), seemed to forget about the right to free speech when he essentially told Boeing, and all other commentators, to shut it.
In 2009, Boeing made a rational business decision regarding the placement of one of its new production facilities. It decided to open a new plant in South Carolina, a right-to-work state. The NLRB claims that Boeing decided to locate the new facility in South Carolina as retaliation for past union strikes in Boeing’s Washington State locations. This ignores the fact that in the meantime Boeing has added over 2,000 employees to its Washington State locations.
The unions are unhappy with the Obama administration for several reasons. As a result, the administration needs to find ways to keep them happy. While unions spent tens of millions of dollars to get Obama elected, only a few union wishes have been realized. Since political opposition makes the passage of high-profile legislation like the so-called Employee Free Choice Act impossible, the administration has resorted to below-the-radar ways to appease its union supporters. Enter the NLRB.

The administration has stacked the NLRB with union operatives. The president used the recess appointment process to place Craig Becker, the former associate general counsel for the SEIU and AFL-CIO, on the board. With Mr. Becker in office, the board has embarked on an activist stint with the apparent intention of making labor laws and regulations more favorable to unions.
Having seen that the NLRB’s case against Boeing is weak and that the board’s position is being destroyed in analysis by anyone who has taken a serious look at the matter, Mr. Solomon, in a rather snippy letter to Boeing general counsel Michael Luttig, complained about the press coverage, saying, “We hope all interested parties respect the legal process, rather than trying to litigate this case in the media and public arena.” In other words, “keep your mouth shut.” The hypocrisy here is hard to miss given the board’s propensity to issue press releases anytime doing so will further its positions. This is case of “do as I say, not as I do.”

The NLRB is being used as Obama's Cosa Nostra so none of this should come as any big surprise to those keeping tabs on the most corrupt and back-door presidency of modern times, but what makes it even more unpalatable is the Yellowstream Media refusing to take on these thugs. 

That's why they get weaker and we get stronger. Not strong enough, probably never strong enough to tip the scales but maybe, just maybe, Ma and Pa Fudd will at long last get that there computer thingamajig they been lookin' at.

Indiana Court Says Citizens Have No Right To Resist Illegal SWAT Entry

If a SWAT team mistakenly busts into your home in the middle of the night, you have no right to protect yourself or your family.

This, according to an Indiana court who, it is pointed out, has overturned hundreds of years of common law:
Overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Hoosiers have no right to resist unlawful police entry into their homes.
In a 3-2 decision, Justice Steven David writing for the court said if a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner cannot do anything to block the officer's entry.
"We believe ... a right to resist an unlawful police entry into a home is against public policy and is incompatible with modern Fourth Amendment jurisprudence," David said. "We also find that allowing resistance unnecessarily escalates the level of violence and therefore the risk of injuries to all parties involved without preventing the arrest."
David said a person arrested following an unlawful entry by police still can be released on bail and has plenty of opportunities to protest the illegal entry through the court system.

In all seriousness now, I myself am not capable of taking on a SWAT team and emerging victorious. Doesn't mean I wouldn't try, regardless of whatever  a court happens to say about the matter. 

The common mistake made by those who say that resisting unlawful acts by the constabulary are futile because in the end they're going to win anyway, is nothing other than a seriously mistaken myth. Civilians in America have a thousand times the firepower of those in Afghanistan and THEY kicked the Russians back home for good. There's an age-old story about a Polish underground leader who was asked how he could even think of stopping German tanks.

"Somewhere along the line they must get out to piss and when they do we shoot them in the head."

The courts cannot stop an honest man any more than the Brits or the Russians could. Moral of the story is never, ever, let the bastards believe they're winning just because they've been lucky as of late. In the long run we've always been able to beat them.

Kindle Is Impressive

Since I've been bitching ...waaaaaaaaaaa...about Amazon its only fair to praise Caesar when he deserves it.

I received a Kindle for my birthday this past Monday and so far it is the cats' meow. Having a home router makes things easy enough for even dolts like me to download a massive tome in 5 seconds or so* and after using it all week am not missing paper one bit. Only problem is my paws find no purchase whereby they aren't accidentally interfacing with one tiny little key or another but I hope to solve that with a cover that's on the way.

The technology is impressive, as it uses real ink to create the display, and doesn't sap a lick of battery life to maintain the text. This means it cannot overheat and a single charge has lasted the entire week with the wireless connection on full time.

Capacity? Somewhere along the lines of 3GB usable and that translates to 3500 books (Amazon says) or thereabouts and yep, it can store audio files as well. Text to speech will even lullaby you to sleep if necessary.

For me the only con to date is that Amazon hasn't upgraded to USB 3.0, but a wireless connection makes it somewhat moot.

The prices range from $114 if you don't mind some advertising, to $139 for the basic wifi to $189 for the model with Amazon's free wifi to $379 for the DX that is tablet-sized and can make your morning coffee if you ask nicely.

If all you need is a book reader then no one makes a better one. Yet.

*I've downloaded 11 books and the average time from clicking yes to full download has been 5 seconds.

A Prime Example

As of late, I find myself using Amazon Prime. Free shipping, guaranteed two-day delivery, and for an extra $3.99 they guarantee 1 day delivery. That can mean ordering something on a Monday AM and getting it on a Tuesday PM.

You pay extra for Prime but if you  use the free shipping it ads up and one can be way ahead in a short period of time. For example; last month I ordered a portable A/C unit that weighed over 100 lbs and the shipping alone would have been something along the lines of $60 smackerooni's. But two days later it arrived from Amazon with no extra charges attached, and of course no sales tax either.

It's a good service but only if they keep to their word. For the second time in as many months I ordered something, and since the CLICK-HERE for next day delivery was only that measly $4, I bit, and instead got bit. Then some little weasel from Amazon has the gall to tell me that "Well, we can't GUARANTEE shipping or delivery" on a certain date, and it was all I could do to permit him the luxury of breathing without a tube.

The 4 bucks isn't the point, neither is the delivery speed. Hell, it wasn't rattlesnake anti-venom, just the principal. As someone who has been on the net since 1990 I've run the gambit of good bad and ugly and even began to believe that Amazon was better than eBay.

But not really. Well maybe a smidgen, smidgen and a quarter, but eBay sucks so bad that isn't high praise.

So as a Prime member you can get something delivered for free on a certain date but there's no guarantee it'll arrive on that date or you can pay extra for speedier shipping but there's no guarantee it'll arrive any speedier.

Gotcha. Hell in a handbasket I tell ya.

Messenger Exclusive: The Osama Diaries

Since American Special Forces raided the Osama bin Ladin hideout, the government has been releasing excerpts from bin Ladin's personal diary. Here is but one of many we'll be featuring as a glance into the mind of a maniac.

December 31st, 2010: 3rd wife Manage burnt my toasted goat's kidney again this morning. I keep telling her that "toasted" does not mean cast into the very fires of hell but she continues to cook while watching that abominable black American fat woman on the magnificent wide screen 18 inch television I gave her as an anniversary gift. One more time and no TiVo until she learns her lesson. #Note to self...next time we crash planes in America aim for the Oprah studio.

January 1st, 2011: The infidels are celebrating their New Year and I have commanded my training officers to teach our jihadists how to emulate westerners by learning such customs. Since I have an eidetic memory there is no need for them to seek such information in Satanist libraries or that evil interwebbery called Giggle, so I sent 8th wife Fatima to purchase fireworks and Uncle Sam costumes which are used and worn on the first day of every year by all heretics the world over. #Note to self...next time we crash planes in America aim for movie houses showing George Cohan film Yankee Doodle Candy.

February 10, 2011: Soon the Americans will be celebrating Valentine's Day and I've ordered my 4th in command Hasseem to set up a Twitter account so that I might post a love poem to Michelle Obama whereby she will instantly fall in love with me and give away all of America's secrets. Or at the very least where her husband has his hair dyed.


Sea Levels AREN'T Rising Because...

The global-warming-idjits have been predicting a rise in sea level for quite some time now, but calculations for the past century say it just isn't so.

The global-idijits respond, that, well sure, it certainly is, but the ice pressure that has been holding the earth down is lessening, and the land masses are in turn rising. 

Simply cannot make this shit up.

Thanks to I Hate The Media for the link.

Now We Know The Real Reason Obama Killed Osama...Porn Stash Envy

Osama Had Secret Stash Of High Quality Porn

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A stash of pornography was found in the hideout of Osama bin Laden by the U.S. commandos who killed him, current and former U.S. officials said on Friday.
The pornography recovered in bin Laden's compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan, consists of modern, electronically recorded video and is fairly extensive, according to the officials, who discussed the discovery with Reuters on condition of anonymity.
The officials said they were not yet sure precisely where in the compound the pornography was discovered or who had been viewing it. Specifically, the officials said they did not know if bin Laden himself had acquired or viewed the materials.

Booger Off Its Rocker Again

For me it was down for precisely 24 hours, ate a posting and erased some comments as well. Wondering if it was a denial of service attack.

White House Invite From Michelle Obama To Rapper Who Urges Police and Presidents Be Killed

First Lady Michelle Obama has scheduled a poetry evening for Wednesday, and she’s invited several poets, including a successful Chicago poet and rapper, Lonnie Rashid Lynn, Jr., AKA “Common.” However, Lynn is quite controversial, in part because his poetry includes threats to shoot police and at least one passage calling for the “burn[ing]” of then-President George W. Bush.

Back in 2003, First Lady Laura Bush held a poetry evening, and she invited several poets to reprise the work of Emily Dickinson, Langston Hughes and Walt Whitman. Although none of those poets had urged violence against a president, Bush canceled the event after left-of-center poets protested and threatened to disrupt the event.

Yes your worst fears have been realized.

Not only have we an incompetent no-nothing, do-nothing, amateur as the first affirmative action  president, but his wife brings even less to the table than he. From years of getting away with pretty much anything they wanted to get away with, it might be time to reign in certain groups who've left accountability, common sense, and  decorum back in the hood from whence they crawled.

Any wonder the Brits wouldn't invite these animals to the royal wedding?

South Carolina Taking Light Bulb Ban into Its Own Hands

Fed up with the federal government’s ban of the traditional incandescent light bulb, state representatives in South Carolina are pushing for the state to produce and use incandescents solely for its state.
The Incandescent Light Bulb Freedom Act, which unanimously passed South Carolina’s Senate panel, would allow South Carolina manufacturers to continue to sell incandescent bulbs so long as they have “Made in South Carolina” on them and are sold only within the state. Other states have floated the idea, and last year Arizona passed a bill that would have done the same thing, but Governor Jan Brewer (R) vetoed the legislation.

I don't mind the twisty bulbs. They come in all hues and radiance, not just what Wal-Mart sells, but the Yellowstream Media doesn't take the time to research anymore and that means Ma and Pa Fudd don't know a bloody thing about them. 

What I DO mind is being told what to buy so hooray for South Carolina, and BOO for Arizona's RINO governor who has one agenda that is of a Conservative bent but one leaf does not a forest make.

To reiterate, BABY WIPES is the single most asked for item on everyone's list. Generally speaking, Army units have room for some degree of storage but Marines do not so anything you send to a Marine unit should be an item(s) that can be easily transported by an individual and most certainly have a reasonable expiration date. Power Bars yes, chocolate treats no. It's a scazillion degrees so do the math. I have many lists of individuals prepared to accept care packages for their units but Major Jack is the honcho and can steer you the right way. Posting an active Marine's name on some Google blog isn't the smartest thing to do and while I was never considered smart I ain't too dumb either.

Dicky Daley Wants Armed Protection For Life

This week's outrage comes to us from the Windy City, where retiring Mayor Richard Daley (D) has allegedly requested an armed bodyguard detail to protect him after he leaves office on May 16. 
According to a recent Chicago Sun-Times online story, the extremely anti-gun Daley has requested at least three around-the-clock bodyguards because he is concerned about "serious safety threats."  As a result, the Chicago Police Department contacted the Secret Service to determine whether such security was necessary, the story reports.

We've often reported Mayor Daley's anti-gun, anti-self-defense record.  His long history of relentlessly attacking and depriving Chicagoans of their Second Amendment and self-defense rights is well documented and speaks for itself.  Daley hates guns and he doesn't want "ordinary" citizens to have them.  He thinks his "gun-free" city is plenty safe for the average citizen.  But apparently not for him, as he feels he has a right to protection that all other residents of Chicago don't deserve.  That's not only the height of arrogance and hypocrisy, that's outrageous.

That in a nutshell is a liberal democrat.

Little Dicky's own life is far more important than anyone else's, and his head  so far up his own ass he doesn't even see how tragically wrong this is. As a public servant the PEOPLE should come first, but once a Dick always a Dick.

The Last Will And Testament Of OSAMA bin Ladin

My final advice is to all the Mujahideen where ever they maybe: reconstitute yourselves and do not forget until fight the Jews and the Christians and attend to purifying your ranks of the agents, lazy and scholars of evil who collaborate against the Jihad and hold the Ummah back.

Your brother, Abu Adbullah Osama bin Mohammad bin Ladin

From Osama's own hand. Notice the "O"...not a "U".

All Your Osama's Are Now Belong Us

Just about every outfit with "news" in its name is running the moslem pledge to revenge Osama bin Laden.

Bring it.

SONY Continues To Apologize But PlayStation Network Still Dark

TOKYO (Reuters) - Sony Chief Executive Officer Howard Stringer apologized to users of its PlayStation Network and other online services, breaking his silence on the biggest Internet security break-in ever.
Stringer's comments, which did not specify when services would resume, come after criticism of his leadership since Sony revealed hackers had compromised the data of more than 100 million accounts used for accessing games and music over the Internet.

"As a company we - and I - apologize for the inconvenience and concern caused by this attack," Stringer said on Sony's U.S. PlayStation blog late on Thursday.

They've been apologizing for weeks now but still no PlayStation Network.

And as most companies do when charged with being as anal as Sony, they dragged out the old "possibly credit card information" as a way to stir the masses against hackers.

The kerfuffle over Sony's refusing to allow the PS3 to be jailbroken or the operating system to be altered IN ANY MANNER is the root cause of the heretofore puny attacks on the system, but the mid-April foray was Omaha Beach in comparison.

At first, Sony said that no credit card info was compromised, but to instill some sympathy in its plight changed the tune to "perhaps", and "we aren't really certain". This changed the event from something of a hooray against Sony to HOW DARE THOSE HACKERS GO AFTER OUR MONEY!

(To those leery of releasing credit card information while online shopping in any manner, here's a hint; establish a debit card for such occasions and keep the bare minimum in it. This way, at the first indication of any intrusion just shut the thing down.)

The hackers...not crackers, mind you...were sooner or later bound and determined to pay back Sony for taking away their ability to write their own games and play them on the PS3. Imagine Ford Motor Company taking back your newly purchased car because you installed a different radio, or tires, or somehow had the effrontery to personalize the thing. Sony basically says that you NEVER really own a PS3, THEY DO. 

And that sucks. Not to condone the recent actions, but Sony had it coming and should have been better prepared.
