Another Day, Another Loss On Every Conceivable Front

The point of having a loyal opposition is to have an opposition.  None of what has happened today makes the least bit of sense.  Republicans, who I am not one, are the most ball-less, spineless, worthless, shit-stained, co-conspirators to what is going to be a calamitous end to this country.

Make no mistake, Democrats are the cause.  But these fucking assholes cause me to lose all form:

WASHINGTON—Chuck Hagel won Senate approval Tuesday to become defense secretary after a pitched battle and as budget cuts loom.

Mr. Hagel was confirmed 58 to 41—the narrowest vote ever for a defense secretary. Some believe the largely party-line vote could leave Mr. Hagel, the successor to Leon Panetta, in a weakened position.

Who helped this incompetent traitor to undermine our military and support the mullahs abroad?  Well, I’m glad you asked!

Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander, of course.  Two senators from a blood red state showing their pinko bona fides.  As I said last November, I did not vote for Bob Corker.  I saw this milquetoast piece of shit for what he was a long time ago.  A camera hungry runt jockeying for a chance to be John McCain’s next courtesan in the event Lispy Graham comes down with the HIVvy.

For Christ’s sake won’t anybody primary this sawed-off gonad gobbler?

Naturally, neither one of these shitbirds has updated their websites to comment on their support of this travesty.  Stupid ass Alexander still has a banner running at the top from two weeks ago where he was criticizing the Hagel nomination.  Did something really amazing happen since the 14th to redeem Chuck Hagel, Senator?  Of course not.

Alexander is what he has always been – a piano tickling, country club loving, go-along-to-get-along George H. W. Bush Republican.  He would have voted  Bernie Sanders for Defense Secretary if it helped preserve the comity and cocktail weenies coming to his flappy neckhole.  The fact that he has stabbed every conservative in the chest is not news.

I will vote for Ralph Nader before either of these fucks gets a vote from me.

Write them if you want to.  I do not fucking care anymore.  They are deaf and don’t give a shit.  When the time came to stand on principle, they rolled over and spread their asscheeks apart.

Fucking cowards.  TNGOP?  Go take a fucking hike.

I’d say that I would never raise a finger to help you but that’s only partly true.  I will raise at least one finger for you.

Why outsource your treason, Senators?  Go to your closest military base and spit in each one of those soldiers faces.  Because that’s what you did by proxy.

The Republican Party Is Dead.  What’s next?

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

(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 Horror: People Are Eating Each Other At The Superdome

Well, the power’s been out for like 30 minutes and as we all know that means the city of New Orleans is on the verge of cannibalism and wanton rape.  I know I speak for Randall Robinson when I say that my hands are shaking as I write this.

People are eating other, even little babies, on the field of the Superdome.

It is reported that black hurricane victims Super Bowl attendees in New Orleans have begun eating corpses to survive. 15 minutes after the the big screen tv went out, thousands of blacks in New Orleans the Superdome are dying like dogs. No-one has come to help them.

I am a sixty-four year old African-American.

New Orleans marks the end of the America I strove for.

I am hopeless. I am sad. I am angry against my country for doing nothing when it mattered.

This is what we have come to. This defining watershed moment in America’s racial history. For all the world to witness. For those who’ve been caused to listen for a lifetime to America’s ceaseless hollow bleats about democracy…….
…..My hand shakes with anger as I write. I, the formerly un-jaundiced human rights advocate, have finally come to see my country for what it really is. A monstrous fraud.

But what can I do but write about how I feel. How millions, black like me, must feel at this, the lowest moment in my country’s story.

Me too.  I’ve never seen anything like this.  Ray Lewis just took a bite out a baby and spiked it’s remains in the end zone.  It’s madness I say.  Madness.

Fresh Out Of BabyFresh out of baby.

BABYEATING UPDATE:  Aaaaaaand.  The power’s back on.  Boy, are a lot of people embarrassed.  Other than the part about cannibalism, the entire rest of this post is completely accurate*.

Dreams Of Your Daughters

I wonder why Obama has refrained from chiming in on Bob Menendez’s sex / corruption scandal?  When Travyon got shot, you had to file a restraining order to keep him away from the cameras so he could comment on his imaginary son.  You know, Obama’s Imaginary Son!  The one who looks just like Travyon so he knows that he was killed in cold-blood because he’s black.  Or the Imaginary Son who he would let Moochelle perform radical gynoplasty on to prevent him from playing football so he won’t get concussed.

Meanwhile, Obama does happen to have two underage daughters which left me wondering.  If Obama’s daughters were underaged Dominican prostitutes, would he let Bob Menendez have sex with them?

Just asking.  Maybe that’s why he sends so much security with them when they go on Spring Break.  Got to keep shoo-ing Menendez away like the flies on their vajajays.  If they lick ice cream cones like their father we could set them on a street corner and work off the national debt.

The War On Women is evidently on shore leave.  Maybe Lilly Ledbetter would like to watch.

Of course, Menendez will not be forced to retire because using the State Department to strongarm a foreign government into unjustly rewarding your biggest campaign contributor / underage teen hooker’s pimp is never enough for the average scumsucking, no soul having Democrap.  As they openly suggest:

In a state with a colorful history, it takes a lot for a New Jersey politician to cross the line into political toxicity.

Democratic Sen. Robert Menendez has found himself at the center of a growing controversy, with accusations swirling of a questionable friendship with a Florida eye surgeon being investigated for Medicare fraud, improper flights to the Dominican Republic and alleged patronizing of prostitutes — including underage girls — while in the Caribbean nation.

“Six years is a long time,” said Democratic former Sen. Robert Torricelli , who left the Senate a decade ago under his own ethics cloud. “I think Bob Menendez is a very tenacious person, and he has the advantage of six long years and a fairly forgiving political environment in New Jersey.

“I wouldn’t be wasting time on a Bob Menendez political obituary,” he added.

The prostitution allegations surrounding Menendez partially came to light before last November’s election, when he won with 58 percent of the vote. Menendez has fervently denied the allegations, and the Justice Department wasn’t publicly investigating the case at that time.

You see, what’s important is the politics and the optics.  Not whether he’s guilty or innocent.  Since if he’s guilty it doesn’t matter anyway.

Say it with me – “What difference does it make?!?”  We seem to be alternating between “What difference does it make?” and “If it saves just one child.”  It seems to matter which day of the week you try to pin down where a liberal’s self-righteous indignation and “Have you no decency, sir?” bullshit lies.

Be honest with us Bob.  When you were coming on those underaged Dominican girls’ faces – were you thinking of Obama’s daughters?

Live By The Gun, Die By The Gun

That’s not my opinion.  That’s the famous liberal sensitivity on display at  every comment section near you (via Twitchy) in reaction to the appalling murder of the most successful US sniper in military history being gunned down in cold-blood at a charity event.

A former Navy Seal, expert sniper and best-selling author was reportedly gunned down at a Texas shooting range Saturday by a veteran who is recovering from post-traumatic stress syndrome.

Ex-Navy Seal Chris Kyle, 39, and another man were shot point-blank around 3:30 p.m. at a charity event on behalf of Kyle’s security firm at the gun range at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort in Erath County. 

The suspect, 25-year-old Eddie Ray Routh, was arrested roughly five hours later in Lancaster, Texas after a police chase. He was driving Kyle’s truck at the time of the arrest, police said.

Because shooting the man who pre-emptively sniped the IED planting, gay-stoning, acid-throwing Islamonazi before he’s able to kill a US soldier in Iraq or Afghanistan is poetic justice in the eyes of the glib, liberal commie-tariat.  These were the same people fallaciously claiming that gun nuts were mocking that Newtown father last week.  It’s Karma evidently.

And what happens when Karma for all those dead babies come around?

I’m still not grasping this whole “New Civility” bullshit.  Unless, of course, New Civility means for thee and not for me.  And also “shut up”.

As far as the POS murderer responsible for fragging this True American Hero, his motiviations are as of yet undetermined.  It could have been personal.  He could be some Lyndon LaRouche supporter hanging out at the intersection of Ron Paul and Jesse Ventura Boulevard or a disgruntled leftist who finally took a few of the following slogans to heart.

when they shoot their officersI wonder what this means?

When they frag the war

I’m still a little confused.  You support our troops, right?

When the fuck the troops

Er, maybe not.

Regardless, that won’t stop liberals from politicizing Kyle’s death before the family can be notified.  When someone does it to one of their deadbeats who accomplished nothing in their life besides being a racist firebrand they scream bloody murder.  When they do it to Tony Snow or Reagan, wishing it on Dick Cheney or Chris Kyle then all of the sudden it’s in vogue again.

I know it’s completely unfair for me to categorize every leftist, liberal, progressive communist Democrat as a traitor.  Completely unfair.  I know they support our soldiers as much as any biblethumping, Southern Christian.

I know this because we’ve seen their legendary compassion on display for the past five years. Drives and banner ads promoting  Project Valour IT, Wounded Warrior, or organizing care packages for troops.   Practically every liberal website I’ve ever seen does these things to support our soldiers at least on an annual basis!

Said no one ever.

These are the men and women who make Obama’s lies about how He Killed Bin Laden a reality.  Without them, Obama would have been a one-term President because he sure as shit didn’t do anything else for four years outside of Crony Communism for his bank buddies and dronestriking innocent kids with Nobel Peace Prize-tipped missiles.  Give or take a few dollars on top of your gas bill, gratuitous racebaiting and issuing so many warrantless wiretaps that George W. Bush must be blushing in embarrassment at being one-upped to effortlessly.

Douchebag sites like Balloon Juice are taking this opportunity to say that if Chris Kyle can be murdered then plain-assed normal citizens have no right to even have the ability to defend themselves.  If this could happen to Kyle at a gun range, they say, then you surely couldn’t be prepared enough to defend yourself when you hear a window break at night.  To the extent that you would be fully unprepared for someone who you ostensibly know to completely turn on you unprovoked could happen to you whether they had a gun, were behind the wheel of a car or pouring you a bowl of cereal.

In related news, condoms are not 100% effective so you shouldn’t ask your boyfriend to use one and unless you’re a professional race car driver you have no business behind the wheel of a car.

So, congratulations commies.  Your voice was finally heard.  Now support Eddie Ray Routh like you said he would you fucking Westboro Baptist ghouls.

Yet another sad day for our country in what seems like a neverending stream of them.
