A South Carolina man who made national headlines after a video surfaced of him being shot by a police officer as he was getting his driver’s license was awarded $285,000:
Levar Edward Jones was paid $285,000 through the state’s Insurance Reserve Fund, Scott Hawkins, spokesman for the fund said Tuesday. The settlement was reached Oct. 3, within a month of the Sept. 4 incident when trooper Sean Groubert fired shots at Jones after the officer pulled Jones over for not wearing a seat belt.
Jones, 35, is black and the unarmed motorist sustained a bullet wound to his hip.
I don’t see what being black has to do with it. It could have just as easily happened if he was white.
As a sidebar, we are long past the time to repeal the law that makes it okay to pull someone over for a seat belt violation. It’s just an excuse to go on a fishing expedition and make a little extra tax revenue.
And while it’s all fine and dandy that the taxpayers must foot the bill for former Trooper Groubert’s itchy trigger finger, a personal and professional price must be paid for almost killing an innocent person or else our paramilitarized police forces are going to continue unabated:
Groubert was fired shortly afterward by the Highway Patrol for misreading Jones as a threat, using too much force for too long and violating several patrol agency policies, the S.C. Department of Public Safety, the patrol’s parent agency, said at the time.
Groubert also was charged with a felony, assault and battery of a high and aggravated nature. That charge is punishable by up to 20 years in prison.
Too often, these kinds of incidents are swept under the rug and an internal investigation reveals that everything went by The Book. Congratulations to Mr. Jones for surviving to see some Justice in this world. If there hadn’t been a video of the incident, he probably would have gotten nothing.
My conversational acquaintances, familiar with my knack for heresy, often comment about how if these leftards would just read Fahrenheit 451, 1984 or Brave New World that they wouldn’t be taking us down this road towards a technophilial autocratopia.
“Hell, no!”, I say.
Libertarians and conservatives generally consider those works cautionary tales.Â Liberals and Progsheviks consider them instruction manuals.Â And they don’t need any more ideas:
Sales of George Orwellâ€™s “1984” are up 69 percent on Amazon, according to a list on the website.
The book marked its 60th anniversary on June 6 amid a flurry of real-world news stories on secret government surveillance.
Amazon lists the paperback version of the sci-fi classic as the 19th biggest book on its Movers and Shakers list. The current sales rank is 110.
It’s at this point that you realize that Obama’s eternally devoted, lifelong ward of the state “Julia” is actually modeled after the 1984 character.
President Dronekiller McGitmo gets the Peace Prize.Â Pretending that the Ministry of Ethics datamining your cellphone records, rooting through tax applications and medical records is a sign of our Strength and Owning a Home, a Car and Responsibility for your own life and that of your family really is a kind of Slavery.
Â There will be no curiosity, no enjoyment of the process of life. All competing pleasures will be destroyed. But always â€” do not forget this, Winston â€” always there will be the intoxication of power, constantly increasing and constantly growing subtler. Always, at every moment, there will be the thrill of victory, the sensation of trampling on an enemy who is helpless. If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face â€” forever.
In fact, we have long welcomed this debate on a host of subjects that we’re relentlessly prosecuting the people who mentioned them to you.
Perhaps Current TV can sponsor a new 24-hour tv show called Room 101 where we can be re-educated to stop worrying about those clanging chains called mortgages, jobs, student loans and marriages and simply focus on the one thing that binds us – Learning to Love Skinny Brother!
“He gazed up at thearrogant face. Forty years it had taken him to learn what kind of smile was hidden behind that disgusting mole next to his held-high nose. O cruel, needless misunderstanding! O stubborn, self-willed exile from the loving breast! O bama! Two gin-scented tears trickled down the sides of his nose. But it was all right, everything was all right, the struggle was finished. He had won the victory over himself. He loved Skinny Brother.”
In fact, if you’re intent on not loving that irresistible Skinny Brother – We’re Gonna Have a Problem ™.
No kidding.Â Now you’re telling me?
“Never again will you be capable of ordinary human feeling. Everything will be dead inside you. Never again will you be capable of love, or friendship, or joy of living, or laughter, or curiosity, or courage, or integrity. You will be hollow. We shall squeeze you empty and then we shall fill you with ourselves.”
Where you are I do not know exactly.Â Please watch your head.
So much for the optimistic tone of my last post!
Something happened today and I have not fully processed it yet.Â Cold Fury keeps this quote running in the sidebar and I think that a chronological milestone may have just been passed with this IRS scandal:
“America is at that awkward stage. It’s too late to work within the system, but too early to shoot the bastards.” â€“ Claire Wolfe, 101 Things to Do ‘Til the Revolution
I’ll let you guess which one.
We seem to have a comprehension problem with the media.Â Benghazi is not about people who messed up the note cards on the way to the tv station and this IRS scandal is not about a couple of “rogue” newbies asking a couple of Tea Party yahoos where they bought their tri-cornered hats.
The IRS is in the opening stages of being exposed for the most massive effort of state-sponsored Voter Suppression since the Jim Crow South instituted poll taxes.Â As they were suing states for attempting to maintain the integrity of their elections by simply asking voters to show ID, there was wholesale harassment, intimidation and suppression by a cast of hundreds to thousands of government employees at several agencies within the federal government authorized and, of course, condoned at the highest levels to discriminatorily deny the rights of peaceable citizens to express their political speech by demanding personal information that was incredibly invasive and Stalin-esque in execution.Â The practictioners of which have since been rewarded with bonuses and promotions.Â If there is ever an opening for Concentration Camp Czar it’s going to be a real contest to find out which is the most amoral sociopath at the IRS chomping at the bit to try out their Commandant Amon Goeth fantasy against conservatives.
What is the content of your prayers?Â I will approve your application if you sign this form saying you will never protest against Planned Parenthood.Â We need access to login to your website and review all chats, logs and IP addresses.
If you do not see a problem with that – you are not a liberal.Â You are, in fact, a fucking Nazi sympathizer if not a full-fledged party member.
Confidential tax information was then being solicited or received – gratefully unsolicited – and used by Obama in his campaign and affiliated minions.Â If you come into my home and you find a bunch of Picassos and Rembrandts on the wall and you know I don’t make that kind of bread – just how do you think I came to acquire them?Â The same way the Obama campaign came to get tax information against Romney and any candidate – illegally.Â Receiving stolen merchandise is illegal and just as this tax information that was unscrupulously gained is the fruit of that forbidden tree.
While I am always good for a rant, I don’t think I am being hyperbolic in saying that the news of today has
just invalidated definitely calls into question the results of the 2012 election.Â Several government agencies, under the aegis of the Executive Branch, with malice aforethought targeted US citizens seeking to engage in political speech on a national levelÂ and at seemingly inconceivable numbers.Â If people knew what was going on, and there were plenty of people in the Obama administration who verifiably did and lied under oath to Congress about it, then November 2012 would not have turned out the way it did.Â Just like if they knew that when that 3 am phone call from Benghazi came with the Ambassador screaming for help that Obama hung up the phone and sent everything after to voicemail.
The integrity ofÂ the 2012 election was raped and because we are finding out about it after the fact – they will claim that we cannot abort the rape baby of Obama’s second term.Â It’s a choice not a child, ya’ll.
A cult of corruption passed the Kool-Aid around the IRS, the Treasury Department and the Department of Justice, along with White House counsel and the American public has just now set their eyes upon the Jonestown where these loyal bureaucratic partisans have committed the largest act of state-assisted suicide.Â Both of their careers, their credibility and the faith that any citizen can have that their government is not an active enemy to their very existence.Â If you’ve ever listened to the final audio tapes from Jonestown you can almost hear the wails and religious fervor now – “We have to do this…if the Tea Party wins like they did in 2010, they are going to overturn Obamacare! We can’t let that happen.Â We’ve come too far!”
And you trust them with your healthcare?Â You voted against gay marriage Mr. Smith, I guess you’re not going to be getting that heart transplant since it’s clear by your voting record that you don’t have one to begin with.
People are being audited after the government encouraged their neighbors to turn their names in to Fight The Smears website.Â All of their computers should be seized and an audit should be performed of every name submitted to that organization who was subsequently harassed by the IRS.
I do not know where this goes from here.Â When people know that laws are used to shield the perpetrators and that justice will forever be denied then what redress do they have?Â You have seen the Obama reaction this week.Â They pretended to make one person fall on their sword when they were going to retire in a few weeks anyway.Â It’s not even a scandal at all really.Â It’s an opportunity!Â And we need to get the IRS more money so they can fix it.
This is an outright civil rights assault on half of the country that is continuing to this day.Â This is not some past event.Â It is going on right now with everyone being held hostage by the IRS.
They thought they would have your guns by now.
Without a swift acknowledgment of the depth of this scandal, with enough firings at all of those agencies to make the unemployment number go up, I am concerned that something very bad is going to happen.Â The indifferent arrogance of the Executive Branch, painfully feigning outrage at this premeditated attack on the First Amendment and the cover-up that followed is going to provoke a reaction that does not bear a resemblance to a march and sign-holding.
Genuine concern.Â This is a bureaucratic version of Waco.Â I don’t want to live in whatever this place is that we are living in right now though I had my suspicions that this is what it would look like.Â Almost as much as I don’t want to live in this place if someone more offended than me starts doing incredibly rash things that naturally gives these brownshirts the cover for grabbing even more power.Â Or, if one succeeded in registering their umbrage in a way that results in every elementary, middle and high school being named after Barack Hussein Obama from here until the end of the country.Â However short that is about to be.
For someone who runs their mouth a lot, I am at a loss for words at the moment about what happens next.Â Obviously, a skilled special prosecutor should be called in immediately and a class-action lawsuit should be filed by every one of these groups and individuals that have been audited.Â Â There also needs to be an immediate seizure of control over the IRS as it is a crime scene and oversight should be administered by someone who can be trusted.Â I have no idea who that would be and Obama is incapable of naming that person because it is clear that he does not know anyone who isn’t a crook, a communist or a crony.Â Or a combination of all three.
But I want to believe.
UPDATED:Â Because I can’t even hit post without there being a new scandal.Â Obama was also tapping the phones in the House of Representatives.Â I guess they deserved it too.Â Like Mitch McConnell after the liberal advocacy group visited the White House before doing it to him.Â So manyÂ coincidences!
There is so much garbage piling up over the last week vis a vis our banana republic that I haven’t wanted to say anything lest I jinx it.
Having said that, I do not believe anything will come of anything until I start hearing the people I know who voted for this scumlapping piece of shit start to talk about what all has been going on.
Radio silence on that end.Â The average, ignorant Obama voter (I repeat myself) lives in a bubble that can only be pierced by Tom Joyner, Tyler Perry and The View.Â And they not only still support Obama but think he didn’t go far enough in doing all the things he claims he hasn’t done.Â Ask Julian Bond.
If there were only some way we could deliver the news with the urgency and timing ofÂ a skinny, black comedian dressed up as the fat grandmother who raised him….
Until that time, all of this is much ado about nothing.
The evidence will be overwhelming.Â There will be fingerprints that smell like Reggie Love’s ass all over the corrupt culture at the IRS, the DOJ, DHS and the various other alphabet soup agencies vomited upon the shoes of patriotic Americans who have been targeted for audits, blackmail and murder.
The press was fine with driving the getaway car until he put the gun to their head for fear one or two might make a run for it.Â This lover’s spat won’t last for long though.Â They won’t let themselves be included in the take down of America’s first black President even if he tapped their phones, monitored their e-mails, cussed them out for printing the truth or locked them in a closet for hours on end.
The next beltway stenographer to finally open up about the abuse they’ve been getting should be handed the number to a battered womens’ shelter and a DVD of Sleeping With The Enemy.
Regardless, the IRS scandal, Benghazi, the Sebelius HHS shakedown, Fast and Furious, you name it.Â It doesn’t mean anything until my little black ladies start talking about it.Â And I haven’t heard a word about Saint Barack in months.Â It doesn’t mean they support him but it does mean that they will not allow their skin color to abandon him for “what they all do” in Washington, DC.
No, he’d have to get caught with a blonde, white woman for that to happen.
If past behavior indicates future behavior, you’d better continue buying bullets and guns.Â Watching Barack Obama for six years, the one thing that you can always count on is that when he does the wrong thing (i.e., everything) and is called on it then he doubles down and dares you to call his bluff.Â Obviously, installing Susan Rice at the NSA fits my narrative.
The ball-less eunuchs of the Republican Party wouldn’t know what to do with Obama if he showed up to a Congress with a videotaped confession that he ordered the IRS information that his campaign used and his hands extended in anticipation of the cuffs.Â John McCain would tell him to put his hands down, slap him on the back and offer his wife and daughter to him to film Mandingo 2.Â Unfortunately for McCain, John Boehner’s daughter already beat them to the role.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again – you can kick Obama out of office but you can’t kick out the dipshits who voted for him twice.Â A century of communist infestation of our schools and colleges would require transformational changes that Republicans do not have the sack to execute much less acknowledge.Â When was the last time you heard one say we should abolish the Department of Education?Â Generations of miseducated mushheads have rooted themselves into every corner of government steeped in a hatred of their own country and ever willing to burn the Bill of Rights for the promise that they can control other people’s lives through their representatives.Â The ends always justify the means and Humpty Dumpty rules apply to every statement:
Â “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said, in rather a scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to meanâ€”neither more nor less.”
“The question is,” said Alice, “whether you can make words mean so many different things.”
“The question is,” said Humpty Dumpty, “which is to be masterâ€”that’s all.”
And if you don’t believe that then I have a fresh, new DOJ speech code edict to implement on your campus.
Our experiment in representative government is near its end and the only question that remains is how much of the lab will be salvageable after the fire.
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 â€” 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?Â Those people looked straight into what used to be your face and voted the conscience of their constituents.Â That you can’t understand that may be written up to damaged ear drums or loss of cognitive abilities or what have you.Â But make no mistake.Â Let me be clear.Â 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.Â 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?Â We should get the NRA to run the Treasury with that kind of ROI.Â Â 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.Â Â It is about dehumanizing your enemies.Â 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: Iâ€™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).Â 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.Â I do agree with Gabby.Â Listening to her speak is physically difficult for me as well.Â 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.Â 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*Â Is this thing on?Â 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: Youâ€™ve lost my vote. I am asking activists to unsubscribe from these senatorsâ€™ e-mail lists and to stop giving them money. Iâ€™m asking citizens to go to their offices and say: Youâ€™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.Â 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 communitiesâ€™ interests ahead of the gun lobbyâ€™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.”Â She says this with a straight face.Â Or as straight as her face will get.
A couple of Navy SEALs, intelligence officers and a raped Libyan Ambassador were unavailable for comment.
Awww, leftovers again?
For those who only watch US based news, it is a true testament to the absolute immoral authority of the American media that the crimes of Philadelphia “doctor” Kermit Gosnell have gone without mention in any major newspapers or television networks.Â And for all of the shame heaped on Dr. Ben Carson for his comments on gay marriage, somehow he is in the news and this so-called doctor doesn’t even warrant a mention in passing:
Gosnell, 72, is charged with murdering seven babies at Philadelphia Women’s Medical Society and with the death of the woman, who suffered cardiac arrest after she was given too much anesthesia.
Chances of Obama inviting the victims of Dr. Gosnell on Air Force One to promote greater regulation of the abortion industry?Â Less than zero.Â If he’d eat a dog then a tasty baby would be right up the alley he cheerfully sends these kids to be slaughtered in.
None dare call it The War On Women.Â If they did the pro-abortion crowd could at least label the death of Karnamaya Mongar as friendly fire.Â Can’t make an abortion omelet without accidentally euthanizing the occasional egg factory with too much anesthesia.Â You see a woman’s body is like a termite infested house and once in a while you have to drop a tent over it to gas out the pests.
On the bright side, those nasty conservatives kept their laws of her body.Â On the dark side, those sainted liberals allow Gosnell’s hands all over it.
A Grand Jury report said the clinic was crawling with cats and reeking of animal urine and feces. Furniture and blankets were stained with blood and instruments were not properly sterilized.
Disturbingly, the report alleged that fetal remains were stuffed into: ‘cabinets, in the basement, in a freezer, in jars and bags and plastic jugs’.
‘It would rain fetuses. Fetuses and blood all over the place. It is literally a beheading. It is separating the brain from the body,’ one former employee Stephen Massof toldÂ NBC.
But he said he believed the intentions of his boss were honest and that the doctor believed he was helping the women, often extremely poor, who came to him.
If you read that last paragraph and understand the diseased mind of liberals then you know immediately that their first thoughts would run to concern over the cats and animal cruelty.
And not a one would think that Gosnell is anything more than an aberration.Â What doctor taking a Hippocratic Oath gets up in the morning, chest swelling with righteous purpose, at the thought of cutting off the head of a baby with a pair of scissors knowing that it could survive if born prematurely?Â Only a monster.Â And this world is filled with them.
I mean who doesn’t have all the cabinets and drawers of their office stuffed full of dead babies if not a monster?Â The recycling bins cover everything don’t they?Â Recycling, composting and waste.Â These dismembered children qualify at least as waste don’t they?Â Crazy Kermit’s House of Discount Abortion skimps on disposal fees and passes their savings on to you!
Like the others, the high school student was given absurd responsibilities: performing ultrasounds, giving patients drugs, and helping with the surgeries. While Tina Baldwin and Lewis had attended the Thompson Institute and received rudimentary medical training, only Baldwn received a certificate of completion â€” in 2009, near the end of her tenure. Williams, in helping with procedures, would allegedly deliver babies, born fully alive, and then sever their spinal cords â€” as she had learned from the doctor. Sherry West, a former patient of Gosnellâ€™s, was diagnosed Hepatitis C and never used gloves or other sanitary precautions when touching patients, administering IVs and drawing blood.
Savings galore!Â Assuming you don’t catch Hep C on your first visit and aren’t accidentally murdered by the 15 year old teenager administering your sedatives.Â Unsurprisingly, administering drugs is the only reason why Gosnell was discovered and the sole reason why his office was raided before they unwittingly uncovered this horror show.
The trial is in its fourth week and is expected to last another month. If Gosnell is found guilty he could be given the death penalty.
Eight clinic employees have pleaded guilty to various charges, while a ninth is on trial with Gosnell.
The death penalty??? For an abortion doctor?Â What kind of sweet, poetic justice is this?Â The only thing that could make it better is if every registered Democrat got the same sentence.Â They are all just as guilty as Gosnell.Â They all endorse his line of work if not his hygiene.Â If Kathy Boudin can get a plum teaching assignment then Eric Rudolph should be able to form his own political action committee.
Where are the pictures?Â As I understand liberalism, we can’t have an honest discussion about Sandy Hook until we can see some pictures of dead kids.Â How about some pictures of these little angels who had their wings clipped by scissors to the brain and exterminated as if they were subhuman vermin.
The absence of this story as front page news in any major US newspaper or television station is because it is an indictment of liberalism itself.Â We have to get updates from the British press because the American media is so biased that the penumbra imaginarily emanating from the Constitution to sanction taxpayer funded killing of your child must be protected at all costs while the explicitly established right to protect yourself is subject to an up-or-down vote after the requisite grandstanding from the Emotional Bully-In-Chief.
By God, you’re proud of your “choice”.Â I can tell.Â So proud that it must never see the light of day.
I remember before September 11th.Â It wasn’t that long ago.Â Airport lines were shorter.Â 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.Â The not having to care as much.Â The enemy is over there.Â 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.Â Nothing to see here, right?Â Just more Bellicose Rhetoric ™ from a young dictator wannabe trying to show his military experience is what they keep telling us.Â Â Obama’s in Charge!Â 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.Â We’ll say his comments are “unhelpful”.Â 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?Â Wuh?Â I’m sorry.Â I wasn’t paying attention.Â The family’s coming over Easter and I’ve been busy with trying to do my taxes.Â 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?Â I’m probably just going to get a ham from Honeybaked or something.Â I’m sure we don’t have enough chairs.Â It would be easier if we just went out.Â And cheaper too.Â Nashville is growing so much.Â We’re absolutely certain that we’re the next big thing.Â 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.Â Little children that they are.Â Banging their highchairs for attention.Â Pat them on the head.Â Tell everyone to calm down and quit being so sensitive.Â We went from being the World’s Policeman to the World’s Wet Nurse in five short years.Â 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.Â 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.Â Do we call that a mulligan and schedule tea with the Ambassador?
A nuclear missile flies and misses its target.Â Another mulligan?
A nuclear missile flies and it hits an ally, a US territory or our mainland.Â Then what?
What changes?Â The world, chico.Â The world.
You can almost see the Army manuals being written now.Â 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.Â 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.Â The “young” leader.Â Good thing he’s not a woman.Â She’d probably just be on her period or something.Â The U.S. has to take North Korea seriously.Â At least we have to say we do.Â Else we lose the optics.Â Perhaps we can push through some gun control legislation because of this.Â Or maybe some gay marriage bills.Â Â Â Or perhaps some more laserlike focus on Priorty Numero Uno – Yobs!Â 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.Â Remember, we financed two wars we didn’t need on a credit card so they say.Â How do you think they’re going to pay for the one they are going to let happen to us?Â 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?Â An arsonist is fleeing the scene of the shithouse moments before it goes up in flames.Â 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.Â Hopefully Austin, Texas.
And the money?Â I never missed what I never had.Â I can leave it in my 401k and the Dow will jump 200 points once the first missile lands.Â Now, about that turkey.

Make no mistake, Democrats are the cause.Â But these fucking assholes cause me to lose all form:
WASHINGTONâ€”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 41â€”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?Â Well, I’m glad you asked!
Bob Corker and Lamar Alexander, of course.Â Two senators from a blood red state showing their pinko bona fides.Â As I said last November, I did not vote for Bob Corker.Â I saw this milquetoast piece of shit for what he was a long time ago.Â 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.Â Stupid ass Alexander still has a banner running at the top from two weeks ago where he was criticizing the Hagel nomination.Â Did something really amazing happen since the 14th to redeem Chuck Hagel, Senator?Â 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.Â He would have votedÂ Bernie Sanders for Defense Secretary if it helped preserve the comity and cocktail weenies coming to his flappy neckhole.Â 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.Â I do not fucking care anymore.Â They are deaf and don’t give a shit.Â When the time came to stand on principle, they rolled over and spread their asscheeks apart.
Fucking cowards.Â TNGOP?Â Go take a fucking hike.
I’d say that I would never raise a finger to help you but that’s only partly true.Â I will raise at least one finger for you.
Why outsource your treason, Senators?Â Go to your closest military base and spit in each one of those soldiers faces.Â Because that’s what you did by proxy.
The Republican Party Is Dead.Â What’s next?
That’s not my opinion.Â That’s the famous liberal sensitivity on display atÂ 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.Â
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.Â These were the same people fallaciously claiming that gun nuts were mocking that Newtown father last week.Â 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.Â Unless, of course, New Civility means for thee and not for me.Â And also “shut up”.
As far as the POS murderer responsible for fragging this True American Hero, his motiviations are as of yet undetermined.Â It could have been personal.Â 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.
I’m still a little confused.Â You support our troops, right?
Er, maybe not.
Regardless, that won’t stop liberals from politicizing Kyle’s death before the family can be notified.Â When someone does it to one of their deadbeats who accomplished nothing in their life besides being a racist firebrand they scream bloody murder.Â 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.Â Completely unfair.Â 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 promotingÂ Project Valour IT, Wounded Warrior, or organizing care packages for troops. Â 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.Â 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.Â 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.Â 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.Â 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.Â Your voice was finally heard.Â 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.
A bit of a break from my usual type of post.Â Today, I attended both a gun show and the Gun Appreciation Day rally in Nashville.Â Both were depressingly optimistic and for different reasons.Â The latter for a sparse crowd due from poor planning and lack of advertising to being scheduled during 3 other large events downtown.Â The former for the exact opposite.
The gun show was fully prepared for a large crowd.Â I arrived a half hour prior to opening and there were already lines of people down the block at all of their fairgrounds entrances.Â I’d estimate today’s crowd to be 10,000 – 15,000.Â 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.Â To be certain, Saturday is for bitterly clinging to your gun and Sunday is for bitterly clinging to your religion.Â Also, the shelves were cleaned out by Sunday anyway so playoff football for the agnostics.Â 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.Â As such, I would put a number between 500-600.Â 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.Â No PA system.Â Only a shared megaphone.
These events should ostensibly be catering to the same crowd and while one is talking about doing the other IS actually doing.Â I support the 2nd Amendment versus I-am-going-to-buy-a-bunch-of-guns-and-ammo-this-instant.Â That’s a lot more Do-ey and a lot less Talk-y going on.Â Actions speak louder.
Why couldn’t they be at the same place or same general area?Â Â A pooling of interests to the benefit of all.Â I’ll digress on that point.
However, I am disgusted by the behavior of the dealers at these gun shows.Â Utterly and completely.Â 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.Â 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.Â I heard of some guy buying 100 rounds of .38 special for $80.Â 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.Â I bought a Saiga 12 gauge shotgun six weeks ago for $630.Â This week?Â From the same exact dealer, the same exact shotgun – $1189.Â Used SKS’s – $550.00.Â Brand new AK-47’s – $900-$1100.Â 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:Â If your money is worthless, these commodities have a value beyond rubies.Â This country is armed to the fucking teeth.Â A gun for every hand and foot.Â The worst that can happen to the gun nuts is that a ban doesn’t go into effect.Â The value of their investments would plummet immediately.Â But we know that is not going to happen.Â
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.Â A sadly good thing.Â Sad that that’s where we are and good that they are more prepared for it. Â 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.Â They are coming for you.Â Why wait for them to fire the first shot?Â 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.Â Hell, they’d give you the gun!
You’ve got to earn their capitulance.Â This is just behaviorism.Â Our government is spending your tax money to arm Mexican drug cartels and al Qaeda in Libya and Syria without a second thought.Â American citizens spending their own money to exercise their rights is cause for alarm though.Â Who’s the real enemy again?
For instructional purposes, let’s assume every Leftist calling themselves a “Democrat” is suffering from Stage 4 Obamnesia and are having a hard time understanding why the Benghazi debacle is such a big deal.Â Most US Ambassadors to other nations aren’t signing up for a suicide mission.Â Chris Stevens certainly wasn’t and neither were the few protectors he was given.Â Much fewer protectors than Valerie Jarrett I might add even though he was in a war zone of Commander Leave-No-Drone-Behind’s making.
The father of a former Navy SEAL killed in the Libya terror attack last month said Friday that U.S. officials who denied a request for help while the diplomatic compound in Benghazi was under attack “are murderers of my son.”
Charles Woods was reacting to accounts by Fox News sources that a request from the CIA annex for backup was denied by U.S. officials. His son, Tyrone Woods, was killed in the Sept. 11 assault.
“They refused to pull the trigger,” Woods said. “Those people who made the decision and who knew about the decision and lied about it are murderers of my son.”Â
Woods said he forgives whoever denied the apparent request, but he urged them to “stand up.”Â
Intelligence building for weeks and pointing to an attack on the anniversary of 9/11 went unheeded.Â Oh, but there is so much intelligence out there they’ve said.Â Unlike say, one Richard Clarke memo saying somewhere, some time, some place Osama bin Laden is going to try to attack the United States – again.Â Mainly, because he’s still around since Clarke failed in his job for eight years to stop him.
“Send help!” the Ambassador cries to a stonefaced Hillary Clinton.Â Why do you need help??? We liberated Libya.Â “You’re welcome!”, she replied.
A distress call goes out.Â The barbarians are literally banging on the gates and there is nothing but voicemail answering in Washington, D.C.Â It’s the dinner hour, dontchaknow?Â That’s the best case scenario.Â The worst case is that the Not Ready For Primetime Players were paralyzed by wanting to get permission to fly into Libyan sovereign air space.Â The space we provided them while they refused to protect our embassy.
What do we honestly expect Obama or Clinton to do in this situation?Â To behave Presidentially?Â Now who hasn’t been paying attention for the last four years?
With troops an hour away, Hillary Clinton, Barack Hussein Obama and Leon Panetta made a conscious decision to leave their representatives’ fates to an al Qaeda mob.Â No back-up.Â No fly-by.Â After all, you can’t just send the most sophisticated and heavily armed military into a conflict that hasn’t already been wargamed for months.
The U.S. military did not get involved during the attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, last month because officials did not have enough information about what was going on before the attack was over, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said Thursday.
At a Pentagon news briefing, Panetta said there was no “real-time information” to be able to act on, even though the U.S. military was prepared to do so.
“You don’t deploy forces into harm’s way without knowing what’s going on,” Panetta said. “(We) felt we could not put forces at risk in that situation.”
Apparently al Qaeda in Libya was slyly not updating their Twitter feed to provide their exact GPS coordinates.Â When the Chinese or the Russians attack, I hope they will be respectful of our need to prepare first.Â Regardless, what’s done is done.Â Leon Panetta would not send our troops in to save our Ambassador and his team because they would not be prepared for every eventuality.Â Unlike an unarmed diplomatic team purposefully made defenseless and whose concerns were ignored for months who should have known better.
Are any of our other Ambassadors in hotspots listening to this?
Which brings us to Cindy Sheehan.Â I know we have a longstanding rule about not bringing Mama Moonbat’s name back up on this blog but this is relevant.Â For years, Sheehan and “Camp Casey” were covered and promoted by the Leftwing Media while Bush was in office. For years, Sheehan defiled her son’s memory and sacrifice to be a useful media tool against George Bush.Â But where is this same media for Charles Woods?Â Is the loss of his son somehow less worthy since there’s a “D” in the White House for the next few days? Maybe Woods should travel abroad and call Obama the terrorist that he is to the delight of the NY Times editorial board.
Mother Sheehan allegedly had Absolute Moral Authority ™ because her son died on a mission he volunteered for twice. Is he supposed to camp out on the streets of Hyde Park, Martha’s Vineyard, or San Francisco and Las Vegas star-studded fundraisers to hold up posterboard signs,Â dance with Al Sharpton or hug on Hugo Chavez when his Navy SEAL son was made to die because it was inconvenient for Obama to leave the campaign trail and focus on his job for a few hours?Â The one job he actually has to do.Â He had one job!Â That was it.
As ABC, NBC, CBS, CNN, MSNBC, Google Current, the New York Times, the LA Times and the rest jockey to change the subject in the waning days of this election, the one thing that can’t change is what bald-faced propagandists they’ve been throughout this scandal from Candy Crowley on down.Â Â Charles Woods raised a certified hero and they have kidnapped his son’s story and are holding it in the concrete basement of an undisclosed location so that it never sees the light of day.Â Al Qaeda in Libya killed the people in our embassy.Â The Mainstream Media buried the truth with them and blamed it on a Youtube video.Â If they think that the Islamonazis riot over low-rent Youtube videos, just what do they think is going to happen when
Harvey Heavy Weinstein spikes the Osama football right before the election?
We should probably go ahead and arrest him now.Â Pre-emtively placate the savages by beheading in advance of its release.Â The future does not belong to those who slander one of Allah’s most loyal followers.
Woods is being forced to give his interviews to Glenn Beck and Lars Larson for Christ’s sake.Â Is Scott Pelley too busy gobbling down Obama’s protein throatshake to dust he knees off and cover a bona fide scandal not involving a BBC television host?Â People died in this one.
Woods, in interviews earlier this week, also described a series of conversations he had with administration officials at the memorial service held Sept. 14. He said that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — despite signs early on that militants were behind the attack — pledged to him at that event that she would pursue the maker of an anti-Islam film that had been linked to other protests.Â
“Her countenance was not good and she made this statement to me … she said we will make sure that the person who made that film is arrested and prosecuted,” he said on radio host Glenn Beck’s online show, adding that she also apologized.
Woods said he “could tell that she was not telling me the truth.”Â
The message to our nation’s enemies can’t be clearer.Â Attack us with impunity and we will not protect our own.Â The message to our warriors is unmistakeable.Â Your President hates you as much as what you stand for and will leave you to die while on the mission he assigned you.Â And the press will not even try to get to the bottom of it.
Let’s talk about poll numbers.Â Or Big Bird or Binders or Bullshit.
Or you can add
Insult Ignominy to Injury:
â€œDid your son always have balls the size of cue balls?â€ â€” Vice President Joe Biden to Charles Woods, grieving father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, during a memorial service at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland.
I believe the saying is that you have balls the size of church bells.Â And they make a clangedy-clang sound when I walk down the street. \
Either way, inappropriate for a goddamned Memorial Service, Plugs.Â It’s bad enough you killed his son, do you have to let everyone know that you’ve got his balls on your mind at the funeral?Â Save that for the bathhouse with Barry.Â Impeachable offense IMO.
Like the Costa Concordia, I’ve been struck and sinking under the commentary about the men aboard that certain floating buffet of finger foods and all inclusive liquor who abdicated their time honored duty of protecting Women and Children First.
Was this ship a time machine?Â Are we in the 19th century?
It seems like gender war and imagined parity is the order of the day until you’re waist deep in the drink. Then it’s “Save me!Â Save me!Â Women and children first!”
That’s not just water around your waist.Â That’s equality creeping up on you.Â Cold isn’t it?
Is it everything you hoped it would be?Â Is it worth an extraÂ 23 cents on the dollar to know that the stranger next to you is going to, at peril to themselves, throw you over their shoulder and carry you to safety because you ovulate half of your life?

From the President of the International Union of Projectionists Against America:
Mr. Obama, in an interview with WESH-TV in Orlando, said his administration has been tough on the countryâ€™s trading partners and tried to strengthen U.S. manufacturing.
â€œThis is a great great country that had gotten a little soft and we didnâ€™t have that same competitive edge that we needed over the last couple of decades,â€ Mr. Obama said in response to a question about the countryâ€™s economic future. â€œWe need to get back on track.â€
Nothing 99 weeks of unemployment and taxpayer funded payoffs to those svelte union workers can’t fix.
Not to worry when you know Obama’s working his fingers to the cone for you.
You ole softie.
In what, unfortunately, is becoming part of a continuing series.
When last we left our listing ship of state, an Iraqi War Vet was intentionally murdered in his home by a SWAT team who wanted no prisoners and has since taken a vow of silence that would make monks envious.
Since then, our beknighted Supreme Court has held that evading our increasingly militarized police force in itself constituting a “violent felony” and the Department of Education (which shouldn’t even exist) has discovered that it has the power to issue warrants for arrest and maintain a standing SWAT team to enforce Collections of past due student loans with deadly force or other non-violent offenses.
I can only assume that Chief Injustice Roberts and Injustice Alito will soon find that inability to payback the loan on your education constitutes a violent felony as well and is “inherently dangerous” because you have created a situation where the SWAT team might kill you.
This is not America.Â Our Supreme Court has a prevailing statist homodoxy with no regard for the 4th Amendment or individual liberty.Â Â I blame the Harvard/Yale monopoly on the court.Â Sure we’ve got two Italians, a black, a wise Latina, two lesbians, a clatch of metrosexual crackers and a flip-flopping Father Time but they all have one thing in common – Homodoxy of Education.Â Â They all went to the same two schools and have never been exposed to a world outside of those Ivy League enclaves.Â We’re a country of 300 Million plus people.Â How can 9 people from two schools possibly be the one size fits all approach when they’ve all mutated from the same intellectual petri dish?
It’s time for a moratorium on Harvard and Yale being anointed to lead our country and the court. The Egghead-ocracy has failed or else we wouldn’t be complaining.Â We’re living in The Simpson’s “They Saved Lisa’s Brain” episode with deadly results.
Sometimes evading the police is a necessity.Â Ask any woman traveling alone who has been pulled over by an unmarked police car.Â Almost anyone would tell her that if she cannot identify the car behind her as a police car that she should continue driving, following the rules of the road, to a well-lit public area.Â By the standard the Supreme Court has enacted this week, any criminal impersonating a police officer has a new weapon in their rape arsenal provided by our illustrious Supreme Court.
I also take it that now any time a van full of illegal aliensÂ refuses to pull over that they will all be charged with felonies and deported, correct?
Why are our cars designed to travel faster than the speed limit?Â Why are we even given the choice if the penalty for using it is the loss of your voting rights and ability to get a job? And above all else, why are we surrendering individual freedom to people who have been shown time and time again to fall far from sainthood and abuse it?
The Supreme Court is making police officers the new Priesthood.Â Instead of Scarlet A’s on our chests they mark Scarlet DUI’s to the sung glory of MADD madrigals.Â Instead of molesting altar boys, they coerce sexual favors from motorists in exchange for leniency.Â Not all, but enough to not give the entire profession a pass on infringing on everyone else’s rights.
Our highest court has been compromised and with it our freedom is on hiatus for their lifetime appointments.Â The Dark Ages of American Liberty.
Which brings me to Anthony Weiner.
The Internet, as I understand it, is best for sharing information, ideas and even feelings. We send our thoughts and feelings, our very spirit, over the airwaves, with astounding velocity. At times, as human beings, we want to attach the body to the feelings, as well. Photos of ourselves and loved ones. Pets. The view out our window. The image of a child’s purity.
Barring any further revelations about the underage purity of the children Mr. Weiner of the IncalculableÂ Certitude, may or may not have spanked his Hebrew National to – that might have been Mr. Barrwin’s most unfortunate turn of phrase in this curiously unsolicited defense of the wanky Weiner.
Photos to find love. To find sex.
My thought on Weiner is that he is a very busy man.
For high functioning men like Weiner and other officials who have lived through such scandals, who are constantly on the go, that leaves one tried and true source of a reliable high. The affirmation that comes when someone lets you know they want to sleep with you. Or even cyber-sleep with you.
“High functioning” weiners, aside the running sexting joke is that no one ever knew if the person on the other end was a hot co-ed or a beefy bear with the keyboard of a slutty angel.
One busy gentlemen may feel a bit betrayed if he comes home from his busy day at work to find his missus jilling off to a tattooed, unemployed construction worker who’s milking the coconuts to his veiny palm tree on the other end of the Skype connection.Â Much less half a dozen construction workers.
Who can say?Â Working for Hillary Clinton might be a walk in the park.Â A park fraught with flashers in trenchcoats.Â Or the ever-graciousÂ frotteurs on the subway who, above all others, understand how pressed for time you are.
This is sex for many people now. No time for Mateus and cheap spaghetti. No time for slowly moving toward one another with a combination of hope and caution, lust and integrity. One can push a button and get something beyond porn. Porn is essentially two dimensional. One sees and hears. Internet sexting can be perceived as three dimensional by adding the component of “feel”, regardless of how cheap and unearned those feelings are. That person on the screen is doing whatever they’re doing… just for you.
Is this a defense or a confessional?
We tell ourselves that these devices help us communicate more effectively. What they actually do is allow us to bypass the person lying right next to us, across the room from us or at an airport heading home to us, in order to meet our immediate, even inconvenient, needs. To bypass their moods, their current view of us and their own desires, or lack thereof.
Weiner is a modern human being. So he ensnared himself in things that modern humans do. When I first heard about his problems, I snickered and made jokes, too. Now, I’m sad for him, his family, his district and his colleagues.
Let he who is without sin…
So only the atheists should be allowed to criticize Weiner by Barwin’s standard.Â Preferably ones who aren’t so modern or busy.Â Lazy Luddites who are fapping in the ways of our forefathers.
Through all of this, there is an unreasonable assumption that Weiner only played Hide The Salami with himself and throughout his engagement and marriage that he never indulged in an extra-marital affair.Â He’s earned it, right?
Running a self-styled gauntlet of leftarded bimbos and pornstars stands he, Integritous Masturbatus.
An undeserved presumption of innocence for someone who played fast and loose with anyone on Twitter who paid him a compliment.
Damn you, sexy Internet.Â I’m a married man!Â And oh so busy.
To paraphrase John Kerry*,Â “Education, if you make the most of it, and you study hard and you do your homework and you make an effort to be smart you can do well.Â And if you don’t you can end up stuck in a union job.“
Always pissing and moaning about how bad you have it.Â Take these guys for example:
Hawaiian Electric Co. used managers and outside contractors to repair storm-damaged power lines yesterday after its unionized work force walked off the job over a contract dispute.
HECO executives said the strike would slow efforts to restore service to about 8,000 Oahu homes and businesses, mostly in the Ewa Beach area, that were without power last night.
Opening question:Â Should it be too hard to find some electrical contractors who would like to live in Hawaii and retire at age 62?
So union workers decided to target going on strike at the exact moment that they were needed most for maximum threat to public safety.
Nice respirator.Â It would be a shame if something happened to it like, say, if the power went out and you needed it for life support.
“It’s just circumstance,” (IBEW union strike capo)Ito said. “It wasn’t like a strategic plan to say, ‘Yeah, we’re going to strike now because the power lines are down.'”
And if you believe that, I’ve got an Obamacare waiver I’d like to sell you.
Any out-of-work electrical contractors up for moving to the mean streets of Hawaii to earn your bread and maybe save a few lives?
Clayton Cramer has an interesting contrarian notion over at PJM challenging longheld assumptions about crime being related to unemployment rates and how we’ve got it all terribly wrong:
Crime and unemployment: everyone knows that they go together. Right? Unemployed people, desperate for enough money to pay their bills, buy groceries, and get medical care (since those heartless Republicans think â€œdonâ€™t get sickâ€ is a health care plan), must turn to crime. At the very least, disheartened men sitting at home are going to lose their tempers, get into fights, and shoot their spouses.
Like most conventional wisdom among the elites, it turns out not to be true.
Mr. Cramer proceeds with several charts showing the declining crime rate in several violent categories which I’m not disputing.Â What I contend is that what he’s calling a lack of correlation is based on a lack of causation.Â Which may be lulling him into a false sense of security about his fellow man.Â Something that’s not taken into account here is how the availability of easy revolving credit can effect these numbers.
I don’t know what Day By Day’s copyright standards are or I would have reposted it here but this pretty well sums it up.
My, how times have changed – No Obama bicycle helmet need apply
After you abandon our allies on missile defense, after you send Carrot Top to execute your foreign policy, after you want to engage “the moderate wing” of the Taliban, after you lick the boot heel of Bashir, after you seek to give Hamas a billion dollars, after you’ve capitulated on every conceivable front – they still want to expand by putting long range bomber bases 90 miles off of your coast.
Weakness invites aggression.Â Wash, rinse and doomed to repeat.
Apparently the locquacious commie-in-chief in Russia doesn’t take the weekend off to galavant around to Chicago bistros with his bitter half:
Zhikharev, who is the chief of staff of the Russian Air Force’s long-range aviation, said, “If the two chiefs of state display such a political will, we are ready to fly there.”
We’re going to be staring down the next Cuban Missile Crisis while Comrade Urkel blithely observes “unhelpful” provocateurs preparing for bombing runs 90 miles off our coast.Â Â Those bombers aren’t going to deliver humanitarian aid and they aren’t there to deter the looming Mexican invasion of Cuba.
It’s a threat that is going to go unanswered.
Keep it up, Pooty.Â We’ll have that radical, rightwing President with his finger back on the button soon enough.
Death to Venezuela!Â Death to Chavez! ’10Â Rain Hot Death on Raul Castro.
Now there’s some election slogans I can get behind.
Back to the “wimp” thing.Â Politics as perception, etc., etc. Â Bush might have been rocking the “Gorton’s Fisherman” look but no matter what side of the boat you come down on – this is straight-up gay.Â All hands on the poop deck-type gay.
Putin’s in a judo outfit and catching salmon with his teeth next to a mountain stream while scolding a bear for standing too close and the Democrats give us Urkel on a bicycle and Kerry crawling around like the Neil Armstrong of test tube babies.
Symbolism matters.Â Urkel on a bike is going to equal an as yet undetermined number of dead soldiers one day.
