Kick Down All The Fences

October 1st, 2013 at 8:58 pm by Brian

If this is not enough to make your blood boil. A while back, WWII veterans who are part of Honor Flight, requested permission to visit the Washington memorial in their honor. They were summarily rejected by the White House themselves.

In a moment of civil disobedience that eclipses the Occupy Wall Street goons, these veterans kicked down the hastily erected barricades that Barack Hussein Obama’s self-directed goons put in their way less than several hours after the start of the government shutdown.

After all, how can an open air memorial not operate without park rangers making sure that veterans aren’t shitting all over their own memorial?

The White House and the Department of the Interior rejected a request from Rep. Steven Palazzo’s office to have World War II veterans visit the World War II memorial in Washington, the Mississippi Congressman told The Daily Caller Tuesday.

Palazzo helped the veterans commit an act of civil disobedience against the Park Service Tuesday, when the heroes stormed through barricades around the closed memorial.

The veterans were visiting the memorial as part of Honor Flight, a non-profit that provides veterans free transport to the nation’s capital to visit the memorials to the wars they fought in.

This is not merely petty. It is a vindictive and spiteful premeditated attack on veterans. Had this been the Gay and Transgendered Protesters of Foreign Wars Memorial, Obama would have ordered a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient to stand guard over it in drag.

“We got the heads up that they will be barricaded and specifically asked for an exception for these heroes,” Palazzo told TheDC. “We were denied and told, ‘It’s a shutdown, what do you expect?’ when we contacted the liaison for the White House.”

This event and ones that are most certainly in the pipeline by him and his anti-American minions are going facilitate a Concord moment if it continues which is almost guaranteed. A revolution against this premeditated assault and unwarranted disrespect for the people who Obama sees as the enemy. This alien President gets his rocks off sticking his boney, fucking middle finger in the faces of the people who made this country great.

Who orders barricades put around war memorials mere hours after a continuing resolution isn’t passed? Who? I’ll tell you who. The same motherfucker who shut off White House visits for school kids – that’s who.

One day, possibly even soon, someone is going to show him the error of his ways. They can start by sending one of his goons to the hospital. Better yet, start sending loyal members of his stenography pool to the hospital. In the spirit of “think globally, act locally”, just find one of his supporters with a bumper sticker on their car and send them to the hospital. Would you tolerate someone driving around with a Nazi symbol on their car? They didn’t care for our WWII veterans that much either.

Courting Controversy

June 26th, 2013 at 11:33 pm by Brian

I am utterly baffled by what gets people happy these days.  Why should liberals be excited that the same 5-4 margin of victory as Citizens United just went the other way in favor forcing businesses, churches, religious-based hospitals and people who have voted overwhelmingly the other way to accept gay marriage?  Oh, for Citizens United it’s wrong.  But for this it’s right.  Striking down part of the Voting Rights Act is wrong.  But this is right.

It’s always right when it’s something you want and it’s always wrong when it’s something you don’t.  Some consistency would be nice.

Let’s just get something out of the way – I do not believe that being gay should be a protected status.  It is a lifestyle choice.  Just like being straight.  Just like using drugs.  Just like wearing a pink mohawk and a leather jacket.  People get judged for lifestyle choices.  By their families, friends and employers.  Whether or not you feel you are born that way and how you choose to live your life is a personal choice.  Embrace the personal responsibility for how you have chosen to live your life.  That’s not a judgment against it.

Presumably, you are a person.  Presumably, one rich in spirit and capable of many thoughts and feelings above those of primates.  I myself am an amalgam of a wide-ranging and sometimes contradictory set of personal beliefs and actions.  However, I would never seek to only define and identify myself but what I prefer to stick in my asshole, mouth or what genital I prefer to lick.

To define yourself solely based on your sexual behavior is a perversion whether you are homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual or asexual.

I don’t fully know what to think about the Supreme Court rulings today.  My personal belief is that government has no right regulating marriage – period.  The only way conservatives can preserve marriage is to have the federal government end giving tax credits, incentives, etc. to one group of people and not to another.  Otherwise, Big Government with it’s all crushingly clumsy boots are going to step all over your steeple.

Everyone can still get married in their church.  If your church recognizes same-sex marriage well good for you.  But everyone should enter a civil union if they want the state or federal government to recognize legal implications from your religious ceremony and eventually there will be standardized nomenclature for asset distribution and in the event of death or marital dissolution.  It can automatically renew based on a negotiated timeline with an auto-renew clause unless notified in writing 90 days in advance.

I know.  I’m a romantic.  But tax credits and government incentives are what have given the government the wink and nod to jam the tips of their gangbanging 5-4 Supreme Court strap-ons into the tender orifices of the historical institution of marriage and the only way to preserve it is to quit taking their welfare.

Exit question:  So, the historically anti-samesex marriage Obama can call up gay activists congratulating them on a judicial victory like they just won the Super Bowl with a sense of urgency he doesn’t reserve for his Ambassador in Benghazi crying for help as he’s being raped in the streets and murdered?

Priorities, people.  Priorities.

Gabby Giffords Gives Us A Piece of Her Mind

April 18th, 2013 at 12:09 am by Brian

Er, what’s left of it anyway in this smarmy, disingenuous, crayon scrawled, color-by-numbers NY Times op-ed:

On Wednesday, a minority of senators gave into fear and blocked common-sense legislation that would have made it harder for criminals and people with dangerous mental illnesses to get hold of deadly firearms — a bill that could prevent future tragedies like those in Newtown, Conn., Aurora, Colo., Blacksburg, Va., and too many communities to count.

Gave into fear?  Those people looked straight into what used to be your face and voted the conscience of their constituents.  That you can’t understand that may be written up to damaged ear drums or loss of cognitive abilities or what have you.  But make no mistake.  Let me be clear.  It took courage to stand up against the rotten, emotional blackmail perpetrated by your fellow Grabbies.

I always suspected she had something against minorities but her lies about this pathetic attempt to manipulate the public by Obama wearing a stole made out of the dead pelts of tender children makes me think she’s also a self-hating handicap.  Can’t depressed people defend themselves, too?

I know what it feels like to take a tough vote. This was neither. These senators made their decision based on political fear and on cold calculations about the money of special interests like the National Rifle Association, which in the last election cycle spent around $25 million on contributions, lobbying and outside spending.

So 40+ Senators were bought off with less money than Michael Bloomberg has spent in the last two months?  We should get the NRA to run the Treasury with that kind of ROI.   This is more than just making an argument that no one is acting in good faith and has legitimate concerns about a bill that was not going to be allowed to be debated.   It is about dehumanizing your enemies.  Kind of like Jared Loughner did before he tried to wipe a few out.

Speaking is physically difficult for me. But my feelings are clear: I’m furious. I will not rest until we have righted the wrong these senators have done, and until we have changed our laws so we can look parents in the face and say: We are trying to keep your children safe.

I’m sure a few thousand women who visited a Philadelphia abortion clinic and whose uterii look like the inside of Grabby’s cranium and whose children’s remains are being snaked out of the toilet they were flushed down or thawed out in the stale milk cartons that constitute their final resting place might disagree about the scope of the shit that Gabby Giffords gives about the kids vis a vis – Their Safety(tm).  Exponentially more kids died at Kermit Gosnell’s cloven hooves on the altar of choice than those sacrosanct more advanced fetuses greater angels of Sandy Hook.

But, ugh.  I do agree with Gabby.  Listening to her speak is physically difficult for me as well.  I’m furious whenever I see Barack Obama doing a Jeff Dunham impersonation and sticking his hand up her ass to make her mouth move.  Despite how old the act has gotten, there is always a fresh coat of Murphy’s Oil on her when she’s taken out of the box. *tap, tap, tap*  Is this thing on?  Apparently, not.

I am asking every reasonable American to help me tell the truth about the cowardice these senators demonstrated. I am asking for mothers to stop these lawmakers at the grocery store and tell them: You’ve lost my vote. I am asking activists to unsubscribe from these senators’ e-mail lists and to stop giving them money. I’m asking citizens to go to their offices and say: You’ve disappointed me, and there will be consequences.

If she wasn’t already half an invalid, I would have said that last line is a dog-whistle to incite murder against the Senators who voted against this atrocity of a gun-grab bill.  Maybe Gabby can encourage “mothers” to write letters to their Senators laced with Minute Ricin in the likely event that they don’t run into their Senator at the grocery store.

Mark my words: if we cannot make our communities safer with the Congress we have now, we will use every means available to make sure we have a different Congress, one that puts communities’ interests ahead of the gun lobby’s. To do nothing while others are in danger is not the American way.

“To do nothing while others are in danger is not the American way.”  She says this with a straight face.  Or as straight as her face will get.

A couple of Navy SEALs, intelligence officers and a raped Libyan Ambassador were unavailable for comment.

Blissfully Unaware

March 29th, 2013 at 8:01 am by Brian

I remember before September 11th.  It wasn’t that long ago.  Airport lines were shorter.  Not necessarily pleasant but they didn’t involve a prostate exam by a person selling nude body scans of you on the Internet.

What I remember most was the feeling the morning before everyone knew.  The not having to care as much.  The enemy is over there.  Sure, we all have to worry about the criminals among us but the truly damaging threats are somewhere on the other side of a sea.

It’s why North Korea bothers me so much now:

The photos appeared in the state-run Rodong newspaper and were apparently taken at an “emergency meeting” early on Friday morning. They show Kim signing the order for North Korea’s strategic rocket forces to be on standby to fire at US targets, the paper said, with large-scale maps and diagrams in the background.

Move along.  Nothing to see here, right?  Just more Bellicose Rhetoric ™ from a young dictator wannabe trying to show his military experience is what they keep telling us.   Obama’s in Charge!  What could possibly go wrong with such a experienced statesman like that at the helm?

Let’s just poo-poo these comments and see the continuation of Clintonian State Departmentalizing.  We’ll say his comments are “unhelpful”.  Maybe when the rockets are fueled and you see the blood-raging in his eyes you can upgrade them to “deeply concerning”.

“He finally signed the plan on technical preparations of strategic rockets, ordering them to be on standby to fire so that they may strike any time the US mainland, its military bases in the operational theatres in the Pacific, including Hawaii and Guam, and those in South Korea,” the state-run KCNA news agency reported.

Huh?  Wuh?  I’m sorry.  I wasn’t paying attention.  The family’s coming over Easter and I’ve been busy with trying to do my taxes.  I got this new tablet and you won’t believe all the crazy shit it does.

Kim “convened an urgent operation meeting” of senior generals just after midnight, signed a rocket preparation plan and ordered his forces on standby to strike the U.S. mainland, South Korea, Guam and Hawaii, state media reported.

How long are you suppoesd to thaw a turkey?  I’m probably just going to get a ham from Honeybaked or something.  I’m sure we don’t have enough chairs.  It would be easier if we just went out.  And cheaper too.  Nashville is growing so much.  We’re absolutely certain that we’re the next big thing.  So many new places to choose from in Midtown and The Gulch and all the right people are moving here.

Kim said “the time has come to settle accounts with the U.S. imperialists in view of the prevailing situation,” according to a report by the North’s official Korean Central News Agency.

Later Friday at the main square in Pyongyang, tens of thousands of North Koreans turned out for a 90-minute mass rally in support of Kim’s call to arms. Men and women, many of them in olive drab uniforms, stood in arrow-straight lines, fists raised as they chanted, “Death to the U.S. imperialists.” Placards in the plaza bore harsh words for South Korea as well, including, “Let’s rip the puppet traitors to death!”

Now, to the untrained eye, this type of thing is just what they do over there.  Little children that they are.  Banging their highchairs for attention.  Pat them on the head.  Tell everyone to calm down and quit being so sensitive.  We went from being the World’s Policeman to the World’s Wet Nurse in five short years.  In another three we’re going to be it’s bitch.

Experts believe the country is years away from developing nuclear-tipped missiles that could strike the United States. Many say they’ve also seen no evidence that Pyongyang has long-range missiles that can hit the U.S. mainland.

Lucky for us – experts are never wrong.  It’s not like Little Un has painted himself into a corner here that if he doesn’t do something that he’s going to look incredibly weak.

So where are we? What changes if:

A nuclear missile flies and gets shot down by an iron dome rocket.  Do we call that a mulligan and schedule tea with the Ambassador?

A nuclear missile flies and misses its target.  Another mulligan?

A nuclear missile flies and it hits an ally, a US territory or our mainland.  Then what?

What changes?  The world, chico.  The world.

You can almost see the Army manuals being written now.  When your transgendered platoon leader conducts door-to-door introductions with environmentally and ethnically sensitive gift baskets you should introduce yourself with your head bowed so as not to offend.

As on that same morning before the crisis, we remain unprepared and unwilling to acknowledge the threat in our faces.  It’s over there somewhere.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel *shudder* said on Thursday that North Korea‘s provocative actions and belligerent tone had “ratcheted up the danger” on the Korean peninsula, but he denied that the United States had aggravated the situation by flying stealth bombers to the region.

We have to take seriously every provocative, bellicose word and action that this new young leader has taken so far” since coming to power, Hagel told a Pentagon news conference, referring to Kim Jong-un.

Ah, yes.  The “young” leader.  Good thing he’s not a woman.  She’d probably just be on her period or something.  The U.S. has to take North Korea seriously.  At least we have to say we do.  Else we lose the optics.  Perhaps we can push through some gun control legislation because of this.  Or maybe some gay marriage bills.    Or perhaps some more laserlike focus on Priorty Numero Uno – Yobs!  You know the problem that’s solved already.

I don’t know about ya’ll but I am taking my money out of the bank.  Remember, we financed two wars we didn’t need on a credit card so they say.  How do you think they’re going to pay for the one they are going to let happen to us?  Get Alec Baldwin to transfer our balances to a new, low-interest rate Capital One Card?

Come to think of it – what am I worried about money for?  An arsonist is fleeing the scene of the shithouse moments before it goes up in flames.  Sure he’s in a 600 ton bulletproof limousine that doesn’t run on diesel and if Trayvon had a father it would probably look like him but that is somebody else’s problem.  Hopefully Austin, Texas.

And the money?  I never missed what I never had.  I can leave it in my 401k and the Dow will jump 200 points once the first missile lands.  Now, about that turkey.

Seven Round Clip Canard

March 17th, 2013 at 8:17 am by Brian

The seemingly always in trouble BlazingCatFur reposted a Liveleak video worth a look.  (Pres.  / Cranky, if you want to help post the video link here I’d certainly enjoy it).

In the video, a dozen or so masked and armed assailants attempt to rob a group of people having lunch at an outside cafe. 

Colon Locked And Loaded

Without warning, the group of would-be victims unleashed a devastating counter-offensive by pissing and shitting themselves (language warning, though if you’re already here that shouldn’t be an issue) which sent the thugs running home to their mommies – emotionally damaged forever.

Just kidding.

One man with one gun with more than seven bullets in it successfully fended off the thugs as they scattered like cockroaches exposed to the disinfecting sunlight of muzzle flash.

Liberals watch too many Hollywood movies.  Technically, everyone does.  Every citizen is not a one man Delta Force who can shoot a moving attacker’s eye out from 20 yards while under life-threatening duress.  Some times there is more than one attacker and it might take more than one shot to stop them assuming you hit everything you are aiming for.

Not to talk to anyone like a six year old, since six year olds have a reason to be naive and ignorant due to their lack of experience and perspective, but gun control is never about saving anyone’s life.  It is always about making you utterly defenseless and reliant on the state for their protection racket and from the crime which their policies are almost always responsible for to begin.

I Find You Guilty Of Insulting A Government Agency Without Filling Out The Proper Paperwork

February 24th, 2013 at 2:44 pm by Brian

(via Big Fur Hat @ IOTW) An interesting thing happened on the way to US Customs for the well-heeled former head of the website Techcrunch, one Mr. Michael Arrington, when he went to take delivery of his new Coastal Craft yacht from Canada.  Turns out, US Customs (a subsidiary of the Der Fatherland Security) are sticklers for paperwork.  Long story short, A bill of sale and some importation document had a discrepancy between whether the boat was valued in US dollars or Canadian dollars.

Rich people problems.  Am I right?

The Department Of Homeland Security Stole My Boat Today

I live a fairly simple life and that didn’t change much after I sold TechCrunch in 2010. I didn’t buy a new house or even a new car. The one thing I did splurge on was a boat.

Nothing too fancy or large. I live near Seattle and there’s a big boating culture up here. I found a small company that builds boats specifically for this area called Coastal Craft. I ordered it in 2011 and planned on writing about the experience after it was delivered.

[...]

Today was the day that Buddy was going to be delivered. That didn’t happen, because the Department of Homeland Security seized the boat.

These things happen.  It’s why they make more than one copy of a government form and an entire industry of attorneys and documentation services support our pampered top percenters who make the money to buy the things the rest of us can’t.  Not that I begrudge anyone this.  They know how to manage multi-million dollar corporations and don’t necessarily know the intricacies of Customs law.  It’s not a contest.

Regardless, what happened next becomes the issue rather than seizing of Mr. Arrington’s new toy.  After subjectively complaining on his personal website about the allegedly giddy behavior of one of the DHS agents who literally took his keys from him at the port, someone claiming to be from DHS with intimate knowledge of his situation responded in his comment thread with the level arrogance many have grown accustomed to since this abortion of an agency’s inception:

The Department Of Homeland Security Is Now Bitching At Me On My Blog

Update to yesterday’s post. A day after Buddy was seized by DHS I now have my boat in my possession and at my slip.

This all happened while I was still trying to sort out a lawyer and had nothing to do with anything I did. Coastal Craft, the builder, took extraordinary steps (and expense) to get possession of Buddy from DHS.

I sat down to write this quick update just to let everyone know that things worked out.

But when I logged in to WordPress I saw a really curious comment from someone claiming to work for DHS in the same office that I dealt with. And the comment includes enough specific information that I’m inclined to believe him.

DHS’s level of customer service is outstanding.  Monitoring people’s personal websites to ensure that their good names are not being sullied and offering all kind of helpful advice on how you should understand your place in the hierarchy of our once democratic society.  The comment in question:

Okay all, the rest of the story(I was there). 1. The amount on both invoice and CBP form were in U.S dollars correctly completed on the form. 2. Just because someone has $$$ and posts something first on the web, doesn’t make them true. 3. The officer in question did not act gleefully, in fact SHE called back to the office and vessel manufacturer several times to verify the stated value. 4. The officer in question vilified by this rich individual now has to endure all the grief posted here and elsewhere by Mr rich guy and explain why she followed the LEGAL document value and wouldn’t cow to his brow beating. 5. Coastal Craft ended up paying for a broker to perform what should have been a personal importation and guess what The value on that entry was EXACTLY the same as on the CBP presented form. 6. Mr. Rich guy will probably post everywhere now that HE was right due to the fact that he has his boat and did not sign anything, but the fact is that the company took the high moral ground and due to ALL the false posting by Arrington, they paid for the paperwork to be processed. 7. We are all at the mercy of individuals who feel (right or wrong) that they can put out whatever they feel and get hundreds of all of you all worked up about the big bad government, fact is the is/was correct and all of us had to jump thru hoops due to arrington’s posts and written falsehoods. 8. I am proud to work with this office/officer and all of you should be ashamed for vilifying her/DHS without knowing the facts. 9. Most working folds have bosses and we are no exception sadly we had to answer many questions for correctly performing our sworn duties due to all the bad press put out by someone who feels entitled or above the public servant. Shame on you.

There is so much wrong with that statement that it is difficult to know where to start.  Let’s begin:

1)  Deciding to duke out the facts of Mr. Arrington’s situtation in a public setting instead of handling this like a professional behind the scenes.  Defending the dignity of a governmental agency that grabs people’s crotches all day are we?

2)  The alleged “public servant” referring to his customer as “Mr. Rich Guy”.  That would tend to support Arrington’s theory about the attitude of the agent initially seizing his vessel.  If only to inconvenience you Mr. Rich Guy.  We’ll file this one under Unclear On The Concept of Public Service.

3)  The alleged “public servant” complaining that they are all at the “mercy of individuals who feel that they can put out whatever they feel and get hundreds of all of you all worked up about the big bad government”.   Your plans are ruined, they have your boat but DHS is at your mercy.  Huh?  What country are we in again?  Bitching about the government and their agents is what we have done since the history of forever.

The idea that this “servant” feels that you should not have a right to state your version of events is a sad sign of our times under the current regime.  Like the gun confisaction debate, you are allowed to exercise the First Amendment the way the Founding Fathers intended – on top of a soap box in a Free Speech Zone.  They never intended for people to have assault Internets and High Capacity blog postings.

4)  Wishing “Shame” on someone for impugning the integrity of the motives of an agency that is utterly shameless.  After all, these are the people who tell you that your border is more secure now than ever, naked airport scanners and are setting up vans to look through your vehicle while you are traveling on the interstate with absolutely no regard to the 4th Amendment.

The only potentially redeeming thing about that comment is that it sounds like a male counterpart or supervisor was trying to defend a female colleague.  You know, when sexism is acceptable.

At the end of the day, Mr. Arrington has his boat.  The only issue remaining is whether he has learned his lesson about publicly filing his report about being mugged by reality within eyeview of the Department of Sees All, Respects None.

Now get out there and flag that boat in the Cayman Islands so you can avoid paying our many patriotic taxes.  And for DHS, wonder no more about the villification of the boat owners and all of the people US yacht manufacturers used to employ who have been negatively impacted by the language of this failed President who demonizes all of the Arringtons in this country for trying to live the lifestyle of an Obama adminstration cabinet official.

 

The End of America Sale – Everything Must Go, Go, Go!

January 19th, 2013 at 8:06 pm by Brian

A bit of a break from my usual type of post.  Today, I attended both a gun show and the Gun Appreciation Day rally in Nashville.  Both were depressingly optimistic and for different reasons.  The latter for a sparse crowd due from poor planning and lack of advertising to being scheduled during 3 other large events downtown.  The former for the exact opposite.

Hendersonville Line UPSorry, Detroit:  They aren’t here for food stamps and Section 8 vouchers.

The gun show was fully prepared for a large crowd.  I arrived a half hour prior to opening and there were already lines of people down the block at all of their fairgrounds entrances.  I’d estimate today’s crowd to be 10,000 – 15,000.  A gentleman in front of me said that he had attended a show in Franklin, TN the prior week and that while Saturday was jampacked that Sunday was much lighter.  To be certain, Saturday is for bitterly clinging to your gun and Sunday is for bitterly clinging to your religion.  Also, the shelves were cleaned out by Sunday anyway so playoff football for the agnostics.  By the time I left two hours later, I could barely get out of my parking spot and the lot itself was clogged all the way to the main road out where a line of cars were waiting in traffic all the way down the street just to get into the parking lot.

If the Gun Appreciation Day rally at the War Memorial Plaza had a crowd the size of the Hendersonville Gun Show it would have been an unequivocal and unignorable success.  As such, I would put a number between 500-600.  Despite the fact that there did not appear to be any charismatic leader or structure aside from the few speakers taking their turn to say “don’t tread on me” and one enthusiastic attendee encouraged to participate in the government’s efforts at confiscation one bullet at a time.  No PA system.  Only a shared megaphone.

Gun Appreciation Day Nashville

These events should ostensibly be catering to the same crowd and while one is talking about doing the other IS actually doing.  I support the 2nd Amendment versus I-am-going-to-buy-a-bunch-of-guns-and-ammo-this-instant.  That’s a lot more Do-ey and a lot less Talk-y going on.  Actions speak louder.

Why couldn’t they be at the same place or same general area?   A pooling of interests to the benefit of all.  I’ll digress on that point.

However, I am disgusted by the behavior of the dealers at these gun shows.  Utterly and completely.  365 days a year they peddle the Land of the Free and you’ll take my guns from my cold dead hands bullshit but then, when the government actually starts to threaten both their livelihoods, their customers, their future and their purported value system, it’s like trying to buy a gallon of clean water at the Super Dome on Katrina Day 3.  Price gouging is not capitalism no matter how many amber waves of panic-buying suckers you extort.

I left without buying so much as a single shell and all of the dealers can eat the peanuts as they say.  I heard of some guy buying 100 rounds of .38 special for $80.  Unless they are coated with mercury and Super AIDS, a sucker and his money were lucky to get together in the first place.

Bullet prices doubled in less than two weeks.  I bought a Saiga 12 gauge shotgun six weeks ago for $630.  This week?  From the same exact dealer, the same exact shotgun – $1189.  Used SKS’s – $550.00.  Brand new AK-47′s – $900-$1100.  200% markup is currently the rule and while the commies may cheer that the gun nuts pockets are getting lighter, this is where my optimism comes in:  If your money is worthless, these commodities have a value beyond rubies.  This country is armed to the fucking teeth.  A gun for every hand and foot.  The worst that can happen to the gun nuts is that a ban doesn’t go into effect.  The value of their investments would plummet immediately.  But we know that is not going to happen.  Obama Organizing for UnAmerica is trying to manufacture consent through legislator intimidation what Coward In Chief doesn’t have the guts to say himself despite his media apparatchiks laying down suppressing fire through their high capacity news magazines and video clips.

We seem to be one event away from a flashpoint and people are more prepared now than they were six months ago.  A sadly good thing.  Sad that that’s where we are and good that they are more prepared for it.   All it takes is some enterprising yahoo to apply the Bush Doctrine to some gungrabbers or for the gungrabbers to Lead From Behind on some unsuspecting citizen.  They are coming for you.  Why wait for them to fire the first shot?  If they truly thought the Right was a bunch of crazies they would seek to placate them as much as they do the real terrorists in Libya, Egypt and everywhere else.  Hell, they’d give you the gun!

Times Is Up Fool

You’ve got to earn their capitulance.  This is just behaviorism.  Our government is spending your tax money to arm Mexican drug cartels and al Qaeda in Libya and Syria without a second thought.  American citizens spending their own money to exercise their rights is cause for alarm though.  Who’s the real enemy again?

Please Quit Stopping Me From Killing Myself

The Boehner Plan - Classic Misdirection

Budd Dwyer call your office.  At last, the unearthed Republican Strategy to deal with the mountainous Obama debt.  Maybe if they shoot themselves in the head they’ll really, REALLY be able to hold Obama’s feet to the fire when the Debt Ceiling negotiations start.

After all, the media will have to admit that these latter-day Headless Horsemen caved on increased taxes in exchange for no spending cuts and it would only be fair for Obama to agree on that in a few months, right?  That’s how it will be reported, right?

With both sides on the cusp of a fiscal cliff deal, President Barack Obama vowed Monday to seek additional revenue next year alongside spending cuts. In the process, he also angered several GOP senators who said he demeaned their efforts to reach a deal.

Obama said that a year-end deal to avert tax hikes for the middle class “is within sight, but it’s not done.”

Does Boehner, McConnell and Lindsey Graham’s congressional dental plans cover reconstructive orthodontia from biting pillows so hard?

Awww, Obama doesn’t fix you breakfast and leave money on the nightstand after he rides you raw in full view of the public.  Boohoo.  He doesn’t appreciate that you’re part of the act too.  Is that what I’m reading?

You did more than just lay there like a cold fish.  Lindsey got all lathered up to do the work of the un-American people and when his reacharound arm went out he got mad that we all couldn’t come together at the same time.  Boehner cupped the balls and McConnell thankfully wore a leather mask that hid his flappy jowled Beaker neck.

Add current and hopefully not future Senator Bob Corker to the traitorous gangbang:

Immediate reaction from Republicans to the president’s demand for even more revenue, as well as his shots at Congress, was sharp.

Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tenn., took to the Senate floor to say Obama might have alienated Republicans who were tentatively ready to support the current cliff deal, which would push decisions on the sequester and other budget issues to the new year. “I think he’s lost numbers of votes with what he did. He didn’t lose mine, I’m not like that,” Corker said.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., said the president’s remarks were a “cheerleading, ridiculing of Republicans exercise.”

Corker said, “You can call me a sawed off little bitch who gobbles nuts for loose change but I will always abandon my stated principles so that the media won’t call me names.”  To which McCain chimed in, “You gonna finish those nuts?”

With this deal, the Republican Party is officially done.  I have always said that they have neither the ability, strategy or will to fight but RNC headquarters itself is about to be declared federally protected land for the deep and lengthy series of caves found within.

They live in this fantasy world where time constraints and arbitrary deadlines apply to themselves and not the other side.  A world where they think that the media is going to take part in a “gotcha” moment when the opposition is determined to be hypocrites or unserious about dealing with the country killing debt banging its tentacles at the negotiating table.

The pundits, the press and the politicians think that by massaging this stuttering clusterfuck of a deal into some Victory For The American People ™ that we are somehow immune to the math that is going to slam it’s red, capital F Minus ink pen on this final exam.

The spending will continue.  The debt will be raised.  Nothing is fixed.  Your money is more worthless than it already was under our “Don’t Look Down Obamanomics” policy.

What no one accounts for is the panic when everyone does look down.  The panic is what kills.  It’s not the Neo-Welfarists bitterly clinging to 3-4 years of unemployment checks as opposed to taking a demeaning job (read:  A job)  that pays less than the handout or the never involved welfarists who ceased to work generations ago.  The panic of the people who continue working and realize it’s not worth it anymore is what will finish us.

But we are going to look down eventually and we are all going to suffer greater than any 1920s soup kitchen at the precise moment of Democracy and Freedom’s greatest peril.  Abandon the Republican Party if you have not already done so.  At the moment when they were needed most, they decided to become Democrats out of  the same ideological suicide that the Tea Party saved them from doing in 2010.  Resentment was their reward.

Like all serious suicides, you can’t save them from themselves.  We’ll just throw those bitten pillow cases away, change out the headboard, wipe off the wall and finally start over.   I really can’t say “fuck you” loud enough or long enough.

Pussy Control:  Time to vote on a new speaker.

The NR-F Minus

December 23rd, 2012 at 1:10 pm by Brian

Full disclosure:  I am not now or have I ever been a member of the NRA.  Nor do I ever have any plans to be.  It’s not that I disagree with their mission as much as the way that they go about doing it.  Donating money to allegedly pro-gun Democrats who pimp their endorsement to win conservative districts and then shoot them in the back with the gun that they gave them.  It’s like Michael Steele left the RNC and now presides over the NRA.  Just who’s side are you on?

It is time for Wayne LaPierre to retire to some great tree stand far removed from a television camera, microphone or interviewer.  He is no more than a doddering relic locked in 30 year old arguments.  Wholly unprepared and singularly unlikeable, if the NRA would like to lose the current national debate they could do no better than continuing with LaPierre as their face to the public.  He is the Pat Robertson of the 2nd Amendment and, quite frankly, the 2nd Amendment deserves a lot better than Wayne LaPierre.

I say this following his numerous misfires on Meet The Press. A dreadful interview.  Into the liberal lion’s den he went, with literal crap in the corner of his mouth while David Gregory studiously avoided mentioning it to him for the entirety of the prosecution decidedly hostile cross-examination.  While the idea of having an armed guard or allowing a licensed teacher to be able to carry may have some merit, the rote delivery of “what we need is a good guy with a gun x 15″ is some of the lamest rhetoric I’ve heard since Mitt Romney told people to vote for “love of country” contra Obama’s message of revenge.   Like the Republicans selecting Romney to take on the failure of the Obama presidency, the NRA is sending a rusty blunderbuss into a landmined warzone with motion detecting sentry cannons.

This is the best you’ve got?  This speaks nothing of his press conference earlier this week where he dusted of such golden oldies as:

And here’s another dirty little truth that the media try their best to conceal. There exists in this country, sadly, a callous, corrupt and corrupting shadow industry that sells and stows violence against its own people. Through vicious, violent video games with names like “Bullet Storm,” “Grand Theft Auto,” “Mortal Combat,” and “Splatterhouse.”

These are the comments of someone who has no connection to modern culture.  Twenty-year old video games that no one has seen since the Clinton Administration?  I understand the argument.  However, it’s being poorly made and delivered by someone reading it off of index cards who could not extemporaneously produce a more relevant example.  There are ultraviolent video games out there.  Call of Duty, Battlefield, Resident Evil.  They make more than Hollywood blockbusters.  Many more with subversive elements like Bioshock.   Breaking Bad glamorizes meth dealing. American Horror Story glamorized Columbine.  Calling out Mortal Combat or “Kindergarten Killers” is tantamount to demanding Dee Snyder testify in front of Congress again.

The NRA needs a new messenger.  One who’s had a little less surgery and is not locked in the good old days when Charlton Heston could smooth over his bellicosity to those not in the choir.  There are numerous people – Democrat party officials, school teachers and the other Democrat nuts who are making death threats against the members of the NRA with impunity and the equivalent of an endorsement from the media.  Not a word from LaPierre.  We don’t need guns to hunt deer.  We need guns to kill Democrats who want to kill us.

He offered no response to Blowdry’s suggetion that the NRA be responsible for funding guards in schools?  Really?  Why not force Planned Parenthood to pay for abstinence education at public schools?  This leap of demanding a private organization to assume guilt and financial responsibility for the actions taken by someone who was not a member or supporter is downright Soviet.  The shooter is dead.  The mother he killed to illegally obtain the weapon he used is dead.  Eric Holder is ripping a page out of Vladimir Putin’s playbook and providing some sham pretext to raid the store where Nancy Lanza legally purchased her rifle.  A store that did nothing wrong is being raided because someone tried to rob it and the media is painting it as “they were being raided by the feds for other reasons”.

Where is the argument about personal responsibility?  Whether it’s the movies you watch, the pills you take, the car you drive, the gun you buy it is no shock that the party who does not believe in individual responsibility would do so in this case either.  But for the head of the NRA to spew some “it’s as much everybody’s fault as us” is a rhetorical failing.  It’s Hollywood’s fault.  It’s video games fault.  Blah, blah, blah.  There was one person responsible for the Newtown shooting and that person is dead.  If he would have lived Liberals would be arguing that he should get an attorney free of charge, get his Bachelor’s Degree and suckle on the taxpayer’s teat for 70 years until he died of old age.  Every few years one would argue that he didn’t get a fair trial and should be let go like the amateur Norman Mailers they are.

These are serious times and the 2nd Amendment demands a serious defender.  To paraphrase I Own The World’s observation, the people who say it’s impossible to deport 12 million illegal aliens are somehow convinced that they are going to confiscate 280 million firerams.  The notion floated by New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo lets the gungrabber’s mask slip:

In a radio interview on Thursday with Albany’s WGDJ-AM, New York governor Andrew Cuomo said that he plans to work with state legislators next month to submit a proposal for new gun-control laws; in particular, Cuomo said, “our focus is assault weapons,” because current state laws regulating the weapons “have more holes that Swiss cheese.”

“I don’t think legitimate sportsmen are going to say, ‘I need an assault weapon to go hunting,’” he said.

Cuomo continued, “Confiscation could be an option. Mandatory sale to the state could be an option. Permitting could be an option — keep your gun but permit it.”

The 2nd Amendment was not written to protect the rights of hunters.  Much less “legitimate” hunters as deemed by the Governor of New York.  It was meant so that a tyrannical government would get its bloody comeuppance when the time inevitably comes.  It was meant to stop Andrew Cuomos and Michael Bloombergs.  Your government is breaking into your home at night.  It is stealing the rings off your fingers at the funeral home.  It is stealing your child’s birthright.  And now it wants to steal the god-given right for you to be able to defend yourself.

You win the argument through debate so that you do not have to win it on your doorstep.  LaPierre has failed at that job.

RELATED:  Did David Gregory violate D.C. law with his extremely violent, high capacity prop comedy ambush of LaPierre this morning?  Video at Legal Insurrection complete with LaPierre’s visible mouth crud.  Spoiler Alert – probably.  But he’d get mad if you showed a picture of an abortion when debating “choice”.

***

Thanks to BigFurHat at the always hilarious IOTW for the linky and the kind words.  As a sidebar, I don’t discount the need to encapsulate one’s message so that it can fit on a bumpersticker.  I do find fault with LaPierre’s numerous attempts to jam the clumsy penis talking point of his test-polled catchphrase into whatever lull in a hostile interview that he mistakes as a hole an opening.  But I say that about everybody.

Time Magazine Names Adam Lanza Person Of The Year

December 18th, 2012 at 7:13 pm by Brian

Sure he’s late to the party and kept to himself.  Mostly.

But there’s no denying that Lanza is Time’s gender neutral “Person” of the Year.

The competition was already murder.  Between Mohammed Morsi, Kim Jong-Un, Sandra Fluke, The Undocumented American – it wasn’t the quantity of people killed but the quality.

What this lanky, saucer eyed mass murderer has done is greater than any Arab Spring.  He’s ushered in the American Fall and the movement to repeal the 2nd Amendment to the United States Constitution.   Many great progressives died on that battlefield of non-gunshot related injuries but it took one brave, differently abled young man to succeed where so many others failed.  With each round he pumped into those elementary school children, our hearts skipped a beat and swelled with pride.  His gun may have been in those cherubic faces but his name was on everyone’s tongue.

What’s he doing??? What’s he wearing??? Ya know?  What makes him tick?  Was his mother a drunk redneck who got what she deserved?

Like watching a young child learn to ride a bicycle, the smile on our faces grew as we watched our own country maturing before our eyes in realization that gun ownership is just plain wrong.  Even hardcore rightwing Republicans like Joe Scarborough and Michael Bloomberg or avid Democrat hunters like Joe Manchin could not deny the tidal wave of change – statistics be damned.

The usual rapid fire NRA put it’s guns in the ground and observed a weeklong silence in agreement that they were totally responsible for what happened.

The sacrifice those kids made for the good of the nation is greater than any fingerpaint or prom they were going to attend.  With each little coffin being delivered to the funeral home we clinked our champagne glasses and toasted Adam Lanza. After all, you can’t make a firearm outlawing omelet without gunning down a few 29th trimester fetuses.  To be certain, we washed the champagne down with bittersweet tears.

No other candidate could even come close to having such a positive impact on our world while making us completely re-evaluate our longheld position on homeschooling.

On behalf of the entire Mainstream Media Complex, we’d like to extend our highest honor to Adam Lanza.  Time Magazine’s Person of the Year.

Cheers,

The Time Magazine Editorial Board

Sad Robot Delivers High School Commencement Speech Wrapped In A Unitarian Sermon

December 17th, 2012 at 11:03 am by Brian

Gettysburg this ain’t.  Sad Robot delivered his programmed transmission to the much heralded “interfaith” vigil in Newtown, CT last night in response to the unscheduled 29th trimester abortions of the white kids Jamie Foxx wanted to kill once they grew up.

Systems responded normal throughout beta testing.  The tear duct emotasensor still appeared to be on the fritz but Barack-O-Bot powered through like some Energizer Bunny beating the drum of gun control:

It comes as a shock at a certain point where you realize no matter how much you love these kids, you can’t do it by yourself, that this job of keeping our children safe and teaching them well is something we can only do together, with the help of friends and neighbors, the help of a community and the help of a nation.

And in that way we come to realize that we bear responsibility for every child, because we’re counting on everybody else to help look after ours, that we’re all parents, that they are all our children.

He said, “You didn’t raise that child.  Somebody else did.”

This glitch in Sad Robot’s readings represents a disturbed understanding that a family comes after the community in order of importance.  They are their parent’s children.  They are not The Community’s children.

In the coming weeks, I’ll use whatever power this office holds to engage my fellow citizens, from law enforcement, to mental health professionals, to parents and educators, in an effort aimed at preventing more tragedies like this, because what choice do we have? We can’t accept events like this as routine.

Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?

Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?

You know, all the world’s religions, so many of them represented here today, start with a simple question.

A.  Where does this multicultural bullshit get interjected?  Newtown, Connecticut according to their last Census is 95% white, 2% hispanic and 2% black.  Am I to assume that like the United States as a whole that it was founded by Muslims and that 95% of those white people along with the 4% of their servants are evenly distributed across Hinduism, Taoism, Buddhism and Islam as opposed to being a primarily Christian gathering?

That one line tells you what this speech was.  It was not a comfort speech to the sleepy little top 1% burg of Newtown.  It was a gun control speech to the nation as I predicted earlier.  Your tragedy is my opportunity.

Insert a series of false choices where you either support banning all semi-automatic weapons or you eat babies for breakfast.  This is coming from a guy who demands that abortion providers grab a pre-human by the appendages and beat its head against a porcelain sink if it’s accidentlly born alive.  Sad Robot is anything but human.

You have a false choice.  Your children’s lives or the 2nd Amendment.  I’d say without the 2nd you can never insure their lives.  Sad Robot does not see your money as belonging to you and it’s fairly evident in his comments last night that your children don’t belong to you either.  Over 200 years into this experiment, how are children even alive in America under this logic?

They belong to us.  They belong to a benevolent government who keeps them safe and raises them because you can’t do it by yourself.

The memories we have of them, the joy that they bring, the wonder we see through their eyes, that fierce and boundless love we feel for them, a love that takes us out of ourselves and binds us to something larger, we know that’s what matters.

We know we’re always doing right when we’re taking care of them, when we’re teaching them well, when we’re showing acts of kindness. We don’t go wrong when we do that.

Such “kindness” was on full display this weekend when one of Sad Robot’s senior White House Staffers mocked the shooter’s mother who was shot four times in the head in her bed:

Even after death, the War On Women continues unabated.  Because when we teach people well when we are showing acts of kindness.  That’s when we’re at our best.  McLaughlin currently teaches at the Harvard Law Review.  I’m certain he’s teaching those kids what really matters.

System does not compute.  Must be a disconnect between Sad Robot and other units on the network. *bloop, bloop*

END OF TRANSMISSION

Who Isn’t Responsible For The Sandy Hook Slaughter?

December 15th, 2012 at 4:50 pm by Brian

If experience has taught me anything it is that the actual shooter cannot be held responsible for what happened.  Obviously.  Jared Loughner was not responsible.  Sarah Palin was.  Timothy McVeigh wasn’t responsible.  Rush Limbaugh was.   Lee Harvey Oswald wasn’t responsible.  Lyndon Johnson was – but I digress on that point.  We can’t pass the Adam Lanza Registration Act or wargame the Cuckoobird Matrix to see which fine, upstanding Liberal Arts major is going to come down with a case of the shooties or stabbies.

What poor, disaffected youth was not hugged enough – or maybe hugged too much!  Like Goldlilocks, we can’t find that “just right” balance.

So who is to blame? Because, by God, We Have To Do Something…Anything ™.  Preferably before this crisis has gone to waste.  We can discern how the media will react since it’s a rerun.

Like all good fascists, Michael Moore tried to disarm all Americans in Bowling for Columbine after another couple of pampered blue-state rejects decided to shoot up their high school.  A shooting that would later be glamorized in the television series An American Horror Story that sought to humanize the school shooter.  Expect the cavalcade of hypocritical Hollywood A listers to flaunt their high school diplomas too as they make a living in tv and movies where they blow through more ammo on the big screen than they do cocaine in their personal lives.

Violent TV Shows and Music Officially Not Responsible For Anything you blameshifting gun nutters.

Over the years everything from goth culture, violent video games, movies, music, prozac, adderall, gangster rap and somehow rightwing radio seems to catch the blame for the thousand failures they weren’t.  None of which are going to be blamed this time.  With the exception of Rush Limbaugh who is responsible for everything bad that happens in the world.

Don’t Do What Darth Did.

Not this time though.  The fix was in before the killer was wrongly identified.  It was automatic assault rifles that were banned but are now flooding the schoolyards (OMG!!! The Children!) even though no one outside of a gun dealer can own an automatic weapon.  And in the meantime, every amateur Pat Robertson will hammer the square peg of their pet cause into the bullethole of reality.

On the right and the left.  Unashamed exhibitionists flogging themselves senseless in full view of The Children!!!(tm) everywhere to this XXX-rated grief porn until the waterworks squirt like the cathartic money shot.

None will ever ask why is it the “gun free” zones seem to be attacked so frequently or that the people who demand that you be defenseless in order to frequent their business or forced to attend their school bear no responsiblity for protecting you when you do so.

We’re just having a dialogue don’t you know?  A dialogue that always supports infringing on the Bill of Rights in order to protect the powerful instead of meaningful reforms to bad laws that can ultimately protect future victims.  Now that would be a revolutionary act in the age of the stupid and opportunistic.

I Demand UN Observers On The Ole Miss Campus

November 8th, 2012 at 8:21 am by Brian

Aren’t a few of them still around after monitoring our elections anyway?  After all, I wouldn’t want them to not be around for The American Spring.

If these protests on the Ole Miss campus were in Egypt or Libya, Obama would already be ordering drone strikes and funneling weapons to them:

JACKSON, Miss. — A protest at the University of Mississippi against the re-election of President Barack Obama grew into crowd of about 400 people with shouted racial slurs as rumors of a riot spread on social media. Two people were arrested on minor charges.The university said in a statement Wednesday that the gathering at the student union began late Tuesday night with about 30 to 40 students, but grew within 20 minutes as word spread. Some students chanted political slogans while others used derogatory racial statements and profanity, the statement said.

The AP, of course, goes on to deride the protesters as being the youth movement of the KKK.  Presumably because none of them sexually assaulted any of their reporters or called for an Islamic caliphate.

Kids, you know what you’ve got to do.  Burn that mofo to the ground and occupy the administration buildings.

When Obama calls out the National Guard on you, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Springsteen will be singing songs about tin soldiers and Nixon coming.

 

IRS To Begin Offering Free Colonoscopies

September 30th, 2012 at 10:09 am by Brian

Never before has inter-governmental agency cooperation been higher thanks to the incontinent leadership of Vice President Poopy Pants:

During his speech, Biden reminded the audience that some of their Republican friends would distort Obama’s record on Medicare.

“Everyone knows, everyone in this room knows that President Obama has increased the benefits available to people on Medicare by the action he took,” Biden said. “You are now able to go get a wellness exam, and guys, if you conclude you need a colonoscopy because you feel like you have a little too much weight in your wallet then the IRS is more than willing roto-root your pooter.    Or let’s say you need a breast health examination by your’s truly or any one of our highly qualified TSA agents, then you don’t have to pay a co-pay for that.  You’re welcome, America.

Personally, I’m looking forward to the synergistic possibilities of mandatory urine donation for drug screening with it being recycled for offensive anti-Christian art projects.

Sunday Morning Confessional: Dealing with Early Onset Alzheimer’s

September 16th, 2012 at 9:15 am by Brian

The New “Voluntary”:  Bears a striking resemblance to the old “Involuntary”

(Photo from the Los Angeles Times)

I’d like to apologize for not posting so much as of late.  There’s just been so much going on and I’ve had some health concerns.  Though I haven’t gone to the doctor yet, I’m fairly certain I am in the early stages of Alzheimer’s.  I base this on the fact that when I saw this story, I couldn’t remember what country I was living in:

Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies escorted a man believed to be Nakoula Basseley Nakoula to an awaiting car. The man declined to answer questions on his way out and wore a hat and a scarf over his face. He kept his hands in the pockets of a winter coat. 

Sheriff’s officials could not be reached by The Times, but department spokesman Steve Whitmore told KNBC News that deputies assisting the federal probation department took Nakoula to the sheriff’s substation in Cerritos for interviewing.

Seth MacFarlane and Bill Maher were unavailable for selective thoughtcrime prosecution voluntary police questioning.

You know, they told me when Mitt Romney was elected President that controversial filmmakers who blasphemed the god of violent, religious extremists would be met with midnight show raids by brownshirted government agents.  And they were right.

I guess the Alzheimer’s made me forget they warned me about that too.  Either that or I am living in Slaughterhouse Five.

I Blame Bush Hog

August 11th, 2012 at 11:30 am by Brian

 

Secretary of Homeland Sexpottery, Janet “Bush Hog” Incompetano

 This whole story just smells fishy to me:

Looks like the Department of Homeland Security could be renamed the Department of Hyper Sexuality.

A blistering federal discrimination suit accuses agency honcho Janet Napolitano of turning the department into a female-run “frat house” where male staffers were banished to the bathrooms and routinely humiliated.

James Hayes Jr., who now is New York’s top Homeland Security cop, claims Napolitano filled top spots in Washington, D.C., with two of her gal pals who were bent on tormenting male employees.

The suit identified them as Dora Schriro, who is now running the city Department of Correction, and Suzanne Barr, the chief of staff for the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

I’d say to throw this incompetent clamlapper in jail but that would only be giving her the chance to live out her Caged Heat fantasy.
Perhaps giving her a beanbag gun and setting her on border patrol duty for the next four years would help her to re-evaluate her “Safer Than We’ve Ever Been” stance.  That and the lifetime ban from Melissa Etheridge concerts.

Barr “moved the entire contents of the offices of three employees, including name plates, computers and telephones, to the men’s bathroom at ICE headquarters,” the suit says.

Barr also stole a male staffer’s BlackBerry and fired off a message to his female supervisor indicating that he “had a crush on [her] and fantasized about her,” Hayes claims.

Sometimes, Barr took a more direct approach. In one case, she called a male colleague in his hotel room and screamed at him using sexually humiliating language, the suit says.

Hayes claims that after he reported the abuse to the Equal Employment Opportunity office, Napolitano launched a series of misconduct investigations against him.

When Obama is evicted from his federally subsidized housing in November, all of Homeland Security and the Justice Department are going to need to be taped off like the crime scenes they are.

Taking Somebody Else’s Medicine

June 29th, 2012 at 10:06 am by Preston Taylor Holmes

By about 10:30 am yesterday morning, everyone and their brother knew that SCOTUS had upheld Commie Health Care. The only surprising part was that Kennedy was on the correct side of the case while President Junior’s boy Roberts flipped to the Obamessiah.

Why did Roberts flip? Was it because he’s such a principled custodian of the court?

Did he change his mind at the last minute because he’s wishy-washy like good ol’ Charlie Brown (you know you see the resemblance as well as I do).

Was it his Epilepsy medication? Have the seizures left him left? That would actually explain a good deal about what passes as leftist thought processes.

Did someone have something on him that he didn’t want out there?

Would we have been better off not single-handedly driving Harriet Miers over the cliff?

It matters not. What we have in Commie Health Care is the direct result of an electorate who is too fat, stupid, lazy and worthless to educate themselves on the criminals that they vote for and the principles that created a country that would allow them to become fat, stupid, lazy and worthless without consequence.

Will the GOP capitalize on this softball of an election? Running on the economy alone is a winner, but throw in Commie Health Care and the Obamessiah’s atrocious record and we should be able to elect a half-eaten bag of peanuts over this garbage can of a POTUS.

But we’re talking about the GOP. You know, the party that is so frightened of Nancy Pelosi that they wet themselves at the sound of her name. You know, the party that has a Speaker of the House that bursts into tears at the drop of a hat. You know, the party without a single set of nads between them.

If you came here for reassurance that our brave legislators will do the right thing and overturn this stool sample of a statute, you might want to stick to those GOP-cheerleader blogs. I’ve seen too much of the Alexanders, McCains, Boehers, Cantors, Browns, Snowes and Hatches to think that they have the stones to do anything resembling pulling their heads from their asses.

But we can always hope™.

Local Merchants Pay Their Fair Share ™

December 23rd, 2011 at 6:37 pm by Brian

Something tells me if some of these people were standing in line looking for a job and not sitting outside of a mall waiting for some Chinese made sneakers with a multi-hundred millionaire’s name on them that their families would be considerably better off:

Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) – Witnesses say Louisville Metro Police had to break up a fight early today at Jefferson Mall over the release of a new style of sneakers.

Officers were on the scene where witnesses told WDRB that 75 to 100 people were reportedly in a fight over pairs of the new Air Jordan Eleven Retro Concords.

One witness claimed that a security guard was trampled by the crowd waiting for several shoe stores to open early. That claim could not be independently verified, as WDRB News was not allowed inside the mall.

At least eight police cars were on scene. Sources with the mall claim they were already there to provide security.

From the Keynesian / Krugmaniac  perspective, look at all of the jobs this melee helped to create or save.  The riot police called in to maintain order and make arrests (plus overtime!), the booking agents who would log them into the jail, the ambulance drivers who would pick up the wounded, the therapists who could counsel them,  the locksmith to prepare new fences for the stores and the janitors to clean up the blood.  And, of course, the welfare office who cut the checks that allowed these folks with such misplaced priorities to use their cash on hand for something this important to begin.

This riot is probably the greatest thing to happen to this particular strip mall since October 2008.

“I got the love for the ‘Js,’ you feel me?” said Brandon Betts, a customer who purchased the shoes. ”Look at the box! The box is cold!”

“Man it’s crazy in there: people getting run over and security guards getting trampled and stuff,” he added. “They almost tried to arrest us!”

Sources with the Mall deny that there was a fight and say no police report was made out.

Correction:  No jobs were created for booking agents logging anyone into a jail for these various felonies.  And from North Carolina:

PINEVILLE, NC (WBTV) – Dozens of police officers had to break up fights and restore order at a local mall while shoppers were waiting for an overnight sale of a popular tennis shoe.

WTF is it about tennis shoes?  They don’t make you jump any higher or run faster.  Michael Jordan retired from basketball almost a decade ago.  Now, this could just be the cracker in me talking, but are tennis shoes important enough to add another candle to the Kwanzaa menorah?

You’ve got Umoja, Kujichagulia, Ujima, Ujamaa, Nia, Kuumbaa, Imani and Air Jordans.  Air Jordans being the last candle.  The highest.  The culmination of all of your race-based collectivist couch-sweating labors.

In a related story, Eric “We’re Cowards On Race” Holder brought a federal lawsuit against South Carolina today for daring to ask voters to show some form of identification in order to vote:

The Justice Department on Friday entered the divisive national debate over new state voting laws, rejecting South Carolina’s measure requiring photo-identification at the polls as discriminatory against minority voters.The decision by Justice’s Civil Rights Division could heighten political tensions over the new laws, which critics say could depress turnout among minorities and others who helped elect President Obama in 2008.A dozen states this year passed laws requiring voters to present state-issued photo identification, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.

Just how is this related to a story about people rioting over Christmas tennis shoes?  Maybe because if showing some form of official ID to vote was such a hardship that all of these people standing in line to pay $200 for a pair of tennis shoes could, I dunno, take their Granny or Auntie to the DMV to get a $15 driver’s license.  The wait would be less too as well as not being out in the cold.

Voting with Their Feet:

Do Blacks care more about tennis shoes than their right to vote?

 In Tennessee, we have to show a government issued photo ID to buy 8 tablets of Sudafed and enter our names in a DEA Registry if we want to effectively combat allergy season.  Yet, somehow, exercising your right to vote – the ultimate franchise – shouldn’t require anything more than showing up at the poll of your choice several times a day and show nothing save the cartons of cigarettes and “walking around money” that Eric Holder gave your preacher.

Taking time away from his busy schedule of murdering border agents, funneling illegal arms to and money laundering for Mexican drug cartels, AG Holder had these comments earlier this month regarding those who have an entire year to figure out a way to get a Photo ID in between their hectic tennis shoe rioting schedule:

Holder expressed concern about the new laws in the Dec. 13 address, saying: “Are we willing to allow this era – our era – to be remembered as the age when our nation’s proud tradition of expanding the franchise ended?’’

At the same time, Holder vowed to not let politics affect his department’s review. “We’re doing this in a very fair, apolitical way,’’ he said in a recent interview with The Washington Post. “We don’t want anybody to think that there is a partisan component to anything we are doing.’’

Of course, not.  Politics plays no part whatsoever in  suing those racists in red states for affirming the identity of their voters and preventing fraud at the polls using the same standard as buying a six-pack of beer or cigarettes.

And if you believe that, I have some Black Panthers standing outside of a voting station  in Philadelphia to sell you.

Of Electoral Prickteases, Chris Christie and Otherwise

September 29th, 2011 at 12:26 am by Brian

For Jabba’s sake will you people leave this poor man alone?  He doesn’t want to run for President.  Or for fitness.  He doesn’t have any fire in his belly.  Or vegetables.

TRENTON— A top Republican said Wednesday that Gov. Chris Christie really is not running for president, even as political commentators began to use sexual imagery to discuss Christie flirting with the possibility.

That’s going to be a hard image to shake.

Lawrence E. Bathgate II of Lakewood, who has led fundraising for three presidents and a presidential nominee, said that after a series of high-level telephone calls, he is convinced that Christie is not headed into the GOP primaries for president.

“I heard him say that he wasn’t running last night. Everything I know, and everyone I’ve talked to — and it doesn’t get much closer than the people on the plane with him — say he’s not running,” Bathgate said in an interview.

Yes, it’s cheap taking shots at Christie.  To be fair, I’ll take cheap shots at Sarah Palin shortly.  But when he starts holding court about foreign policy – don’t start talking about exceptionalism and why we don’t have any but that you’re not going to do anything about it.  Are people on the right so hard up for a candidate that they’ve turned chubby chaser?

Same with Sarah Palin.  Go sell your books.  Go raise your kids.  Three and a half years of “I’m running / I’m not sure I’m running” blue balls are enough for me thank you very little.  Quit dry humping conservatives for attention.  My leg can’t take it anymore.

Gangster Government’s St. Valentine’s Day Massacre

April 16th, 2011 at 7:07 am by Brian

I imagine that Harry Reid is smiling this morning.  And we’ll file this under “Income Tax Day Coincidences”.

Where is your Pro-Choice lobby now?  You can ante up your underage uterus on the operating table with a taxpayer funded blind but you can’t hit on soft 17 unless you travel across state lines to Atlantic City or Nevada.

The founders of the three largest online poker sites were indicted on Friday in what could serve as a death blow to a thriving industry.

Eleven executives at PokerStars, Full Tilt Poker, Absolute Poker and a number of their affiliates were charged with bank fraud and money laundering in an indictment unsealed in a Manhattan court. Two of the defendants were arrested on Friday morning in Utah and Nevada. Federal agents are searching for the others.

Prosecutors are seeking to immediately shut down the sites and to eventually send the executives to jail and to recover $3 billion from the companies. By Friday afternoon Full Tilt Poker’s site displayed a message explaining that “this domain name has been seized by the F.B.I. pursuant to an Arrest Warrant.”

This is the quid pro quo that government virtue paid to legalized vice and is the U.S. equivalent of Russia’s Mikhail Khodorkovsky farce.

Harry Reid calls out hit squad on the Vegas competition

Of all my vices, gambling is not counted among them.  Not that I’m against it – I’m just not good at it.  Judging from the constantly imploded and rebuilt steel and glass along the Las Vegas Strip, neither is anyone else.   Leaving out the morality of gambling, online or otherwise, the only difference between the physical casino that checks your bags while removing all of the windows and clocks from the gaming area and the one that you play in the solitude of your home office is the silent governmental partner who wants to make sure he gets his cut.

Full-Tilt Government.  The House always wins.

Impromptu Weekend Wrap-Up:

Rob Taylor at NewsRealBlog has a good piece up on the 10 biggest financial feces already flung mid-air towards the fan blades that are somehow getting no play in  state-run media.  I’m tempted to cash out my 401k, buy shotgun shells and all the frozen vegetables at Wal-Mart now.

The Happy Warrior himself Mark Steyn is back with his inimitable style focused like an Obamanian laser on the failures of multiculturalism, liberal military adventurism and media malpractice on display after the assassination of two US soldiers at the Frankfurt airport this last week.

Ann Coulter’s working OT in a right-to-work state.  To the union dock monkeys, she’s not from the government and she’s not here to help you.  Which is why I like her.

It’s Time To Close The Backpack Bomb Gunshow Loophole

January 19th, 2011 at 1:07 am by Brian

Here we go again.  Apprise Miss Cleo and Dionne Warwick of a situation.  The JournoList Psychic Friends Network, fresh off a humiliating tarot card reading of the Arizona shooting – where they almost had to give everybody their money back – has decided to don their gypsy wigs and crystal balls one more time to libel people on the right again.  They won’t be able to help themselves:

A backpack found along the route of the Martin Luther King Jr. march in Spokane contained a bomb “capable of inflicting multiple casualties,” the FBI said Tuesday, describing the case as “domestic terrorism.”

The FBI said the Swiss Army-brand backpack was found about 9:25 a.m. PST on Monday on a bench at the northeast corner of North Washington Street and West Main Avenue in downtown Spokane.

Spokane Washington Nazis.  If there’s one thing I hate – it’s Spokane Washington Nazis.

In an interview on msnbc cable’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” Spokesman-Review reporter Thomas Clouse said confidential sources told him that the device was equipped with a remote control detonator and contained shrapnel.

Rachel Maddow?  Huh???  This “reporter” got routed to the bottom of the barrel awfully quick.

The FBI has not established an official motive, but Harrill told NBC News “the timing and placement of the backpack (along the march route) is inescapable.”

“At that point, it falls directly in the realm and sphere of domestic terrorism,” Harrill told the Associated Press. “Clearly, there was some political or social agenda here.”

On that, we’re agreed.  There’s a political agenda at play and I’d wager that you’d see a mannish looking older lad with a pageboy haircut and an MSNBC microphone sprinting from the scene.

Perhaps  the holy spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. will be roused from that eternally subsidized mansion in the sky to shame those murderous Tea Partiers bent on ruining the most solemn occasion of the year.  That is what you go to Maddow for, isn’t it?

That fits Teh Narrative(tm) so well all that’s missing is Katie Couric and the SPLC deciding whether it’s the effort to repeal Obamacare or Sarah Palin hosting Kate Plus Eight that set off the barrels full of T-N-T those teabaggers are sitting on.

Are they really going to roll the dice again so soon?  Believe it.

Like, you’d have to be a hep, ten-speed ridin’, ponytail swishing, jazz loving schizopottamus not to make that obvious connection, man.

Why Didn’t Debussy Write Echo Chamber Music?

January 17th, 2011 at 8:55 am by Brian

In a post both unintentionally hilarious and unironically titled “Blindspot”,  a crestfallen Bolshevik laments as to “why there aren’t more full bore socialist bloggers”.  It’s hilarious on several fronts – aside from the supply and demand one that they generally never care much for on any level.

The End of the Left Spectrum just doesn’t have a voice it seems and a slew of big name blogcommies join in to explain why.

No one seems to have tripped over the answer so I’ll provide the Cliff’s Notes:

The national and alt-media subsidizes The Socialist in positions from editor, internet blogger, to research assistant, to columnist, announcer, coffee gaffer, etc.  McCarthyite Blacklists have nothing on the traditional print and television media in the United States from hiring people on the Right.

The media in the U.S. has institutionalized Leftism.  It’s our Rendellian Early Warning System. They’ve generously placed a yoke on their subhuman strength to harness their Stalinist aspirations for some useful (idiot) purpose.  Every year, new Victor Navasky J-School grads till a barren field salted by their previous year’s failures for a wine, cheese and underage male escort stipend.  When they “blog” it’s called “news reporting”.

The Rightwing Pegasus, however, can’t be broken so it still roams the prairie free.

Look no further than the Climategate e-mails from last year.  It was religious blasphemy to even mention the story of purloined e-mails showing Global Warming as a complete and utter fraud in a prelude to one of the more brutal winters on record.  We had to go to Britain to find the story because of the self-imposed blackout in the U.S.

BONUS QUESTION FROM THE COMMENTS:  “But what about Krugman?”

Good question.  Unlike his fellow socialists, Krugman is so uniquely and yet hurriedly wrong about everything that “the unit of measure for how wrong someone is” should be measured in Metric Krugmans.

Public Editor Watch: The NYT Public Editor comments on it’s atrocious AZ Shooter coverage and the name Krugman is nowhere to be found.  Why were they so bad?  Like the AZ shooter, it’s everybody else’s fault but their own.  It’s the Internets fault.  It’s “time’s” fault.  You know, those things beyond the control of an editor.

Congressional Dem Seeks To Ban Free Speech – Torches, Pitchforks Hardest Hit

January 10th, 2011 at 9:55 am by Brian

The New Brady Campaign: 5 day waiting period on pitchforks.

They’re not really fascists.  They just ask for things that fascists do in order to keep the public from seeking a redress of their grievances in response to a deaf Congress:

Rep. Robert Brady (D-Pa.) reportedly plans to introduce legislation that would make it a federal crime to use language or symbols that could be perceived as threatening or inciting violence against a federal official or member of Congress.

“Perceived” is the keyword there. No more “targeting” an incumbent in a primary.  No more “breaking out the pitchforks and torches”.

For people who perceive anyone who seeks to limit there power in anyway as a threat, lowering the threshold to their subjective definition is an assault on Free Speech and elevates our Kleptocrats to an untouchable status.

I would say to “kick” him out of office but that sounds like a threat too.  See how that works?

*Ahem*  After a spirited contest of ideas, I propose that the incumbent be gently walked from The People’s Office, through a tickertape parade for his years of loyal service and into a limousine where he will be shuttled to a comfortable job that provides both his family and mistresses a satisfactory lifestyle until Nature runs its course unencumbered from the interference of a mankind undeserving of the blessing of his existence.

That’s bound to get those donations pouring in.

My Aching, Blue-Veined Constitutional Swayback

January 9th, 2011 at 5:12 pm by Brian

I don’t know what got into Andrew McCarthy but whatever it was it’s been building up for some time:

Is there anything richer than a gaggle of smarmy progressives snickering at the conservative “Constitution fetish”? “Fetish” is the fashionable Left’s latest suggestive imagery turned talking point, a dig at the new Republican majority in the House, which began its session this week by reading the Constitution aloud. It’s as if Dracula were complaining about a crucifix fetish.

Look into my eyes.  I’ve been fantasizing about repealing your mammoth, heaving, soapy penumbras all day.

McCarthy then proceeds to brutalize the pervy progressive projectionists, not unlike Jodie Foster in The Accused, with some of the more depraved hits they laid down on their metaphoric mattresses.

Yea.  Look at yourself in the mirror you dirty little tramps.

Explaining (sort of) why Blackmun’s iconic Roe v. Wade decision simply had to be preserved despite its void of support in law and logic, they wrote: “At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life.” You’re telling me you think James Madison could compete with that?

Jimmy Jam was always spittin’ Mad game but Blackmun was Supafly TNT in the legal sack.

And would that it were just a fetish. In 2005, the justices sparked public outrage by ruling that government kleptocrats could seize private property in order to increase the tax haul — er, I mean, for sustainable community development. Was this really an appropriate invocation of eminent domain? Shouldn’t the people’s representatives rein in this blatant judicial overreach? Once and future minority leader Nancy Pelosi was astonished at such impertinent questions. “It is a decision of the Supreme Court,” she harrumphed. “It is almost as if God has spoken.”

Nothing makes San Fran Nan aka Madam Nasty Pelosivic start screaming “Oh God” faster than 6 men in black robes (and three kinda, sorta women) waving their gavels over her head.  All public holes filled with unappealable adjudication that’s bound to test the nation’s gag reflex.

Her courtroom climax?  Precedent setting.

Check it all out.  It’s in the NRO After Dark section.

Open question:  Where do you keep your Constitutions?  Personally, I keep my main one between my mattress and box springs.  An extra one in a sock drawer.   Every year I keep getting older but they keep staying the same age.

Who’s Your (Founding) Daddy? Yea.  You like that dontcha?
