"You want me to nationalize the banks?" he said during the broadcast of his weekly TV show "Alo Presidente."
"I have no problem with that because the banks don't want to extend credit to the poor, they don't comply, they don't want to comply with the bank's purpose for existence, and that is the law."
Chavez said the purpose of banks was not to enrich a small group of people but "should be to collect funds and savings to help aid the country's development by making loans, extending credits for housing."
In power for a decade, Chavez has nationalized broad swathes of the economy.
His banking nationalization threats on Sunday appeared to be broader in scope than his well-publicized warnings in recent years to nationalize Spanish-owned banks in Venezuela.
He repeatedly threatened to seize Spanish bank subsidiaries in Venezuela unless Spain's king apologized for telling him to "shut up" in November 2007 at a regional summit where Chavez branded a recent ex-Spanish prime minister a fascist. More here:
Ha ha, "Don't insult me or I'll take your cash."

Communism Failing Miserably in Venezuela
Er uh, blackouts in Venezuela, really no kidding?
Via New York Times: CARACAS, Venezuela — This country may be an energy colossus, with the largest conventional oil reserves outside the Middle East and one of the world’s mightiest hydroelectric systems, but that has not prevented it from enduring serious electricity and water shortages that seem only to be getting worse.
You'd think that would be like predictable given the past performance of heavily communist policies in the past?
So look kids, this is the ordinary result of communism. I know a lot of the youngsters don't remember the actual result of severely restrictive communist economic policy. So yes I'm sure it seems so glamorous in class, but this is the hard real world reality of it. Sorry to bust your little neo-commie bubbles.
Of course, at the rate Obama and the democrat congress are spending/printing money we'll be right behind you.
From this article at the Wall Street Journal:
The budget more than doubles the national debt held by the public, adding more to the debt than all previous presidents -- from George Washington to George W. Bush -- combined.
So there's this dumbass, Andrew Revkin, ... he's a global warming "reporter" at the New York Times. However, like most newspapers, they'll only "report" what they want you to know ... cuz they're "fair and balanced." So what does Revkin say about the content of the emails?
I have a story in the Times on the incident and its repercussions, which continue to unfold. But there's much more to explore, of course (including several references to me). The documents appear to have been acquired illegally and contain all manner of private information and statements that were never intended for the public eye, so they won't be posted here.

Excerpts below from this article: at Newsbusters.
Watts Up With That? reposting from New Zealand's TBR.cc Investigate magazine's breaking news forum explains this latest development in the widening Climategate scandal:
The scandal breaks as fears grow worldwide that corruption of climate science is not confined to just Britain’s CRU climate research centre.
We have discovered that the warming in New Zealand over the past 156 years was indeed man-made, but it had nothing to do with emissions of CO2—it was created by man-made adjustments of the temperature. It’s a disgrace.
The shocking truth is that the oldest readings have been cranked way down and later readings artificially lifted to give a false impression of warming, as documented below. There is nothing in the station histories to warrant these adjustments and to date Dr Salinger and NIWA have not revealed why they did this.
NIWA’s David Wratt has told Investigate magazine this afternoon his organization denies faking temperature data and he claims NIWA has a good explanation for adjusting the temperature data upward. Wratt says NIWA is drafting a media response for release later this afternoon which will explain why they altered the raw data. Yes ... please "explain." Something tells me the "explanation" won't make sense to "laymen."
Manipulation of raw data is at the heart of recent claims of corrupt scientific practice in climate science, with CRU’s Phil Jones recently claiming old temperature records collected by his organization were “destroyed” or “lost”, meaning researchers can now only access manipulated data. Yes, SOMEHOW these old records were "destroyed or lost." What a coincidence. LMAO!
Now, let's see ... with the recent "Climategate" scandal coming out and now this ... what would you do if you were Presidink Obama? Would you hold off on going to Copenhagen and committing America (and our tax money) to this fraud? Oh, by the way, this is a treaty ... get it? A treaty locks us into our commitments with other countries. It's as binding as the constitution. WE CAN'T GET OUT OF IT!!
Well, weeks ago, he said he wasn't going because it conflicted with him accepting the Nobel Peace Prize (ha ha.) However, NOW, he's going. This guy (video at the link) says it's because he wants to act now, before the Climategate scandal is fully investigated by congress and the media. (Oh please ... as if the media is going to cover it ... as if the democrats are going to investigate anything that might interfere with their ability to grab power and tax ... as if the government gives a flaming damn whether global warming is real or imagined.)
Remember, global warming isn't about saving the planet ... health care reform isn't about affordable health insurance ... cap and trade isn't about saving the planet. They're ALL about weakening America, controlling you (power,) taking your money (power,) and not having you whine about it.
Also, if you aren't up to speed on the original Climategate scandal, you can click here. Basically, what happinked is someone hacked the "scientists" email accounts and the documents show the truth/farce in graphic detail ... you know ... in terms even we laymen can capisky. Oh you didn't know? You should watch the news or read a paper ... oh wait ... never mind ... the media (except FOX) isn't covering it.
Remember, always capitalize all of the letter in "FOX" ... just like ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC etc ... the libs hate it when you capitalize all the letters of FOX ... THEY HATE IT. It's just like when you call their party the "Democrat" party. THEY HATE IT .... they want you to call it the "Democratic" party. LMAO ... yeah, sure.
Lately, whenever I have conversations with libs, I have gone out of my way to use the words "Democrat Party." I have decided to pay attention and find out what other things irk the crap out of them ... you know ... I wouldn't want to accidinkly upset them ... I'm sensitive that way. In fact, I know you feel the same way so I plan on putting up a blog post containing this helpful information. Don't misuse it now.
As a final thought ... I sure would be upset if Al Gore went broke and all these shitstain "scientists" had to find funding somewhere other than my pocket ... wouldn't you?

The first three parts are the speech. In the next four parts Mark takes questions from the audience. I watched them all. I guess they told him not to yell - lmao.
Here's a link to the rest of the speech & questions.
Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountains during the summer and would go to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.
The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer and the invention of the wheel. The wheel was invented to get man to the beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
1 . Liberals, and
Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet, so while our early humans were sitting around waiting for them to be invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the Conservative movement..
Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the sewing, fetching, and hair dressing. This was the beginning of the Liberal movement.
Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. Those became known as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that conservatives provided.
Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the jackass.
Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard liberal fare.. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their women have higher testosterone levels than their men. Most social workers, personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywoodand group therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.
Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud or Miller. They eat red meat and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big game hunters, rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors, police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively. Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work for a living.
Liberals produce little or nothing. They like to govern the producers and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained in Europe when conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get more for nothing.
Here ends today's lesson in world history:
It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily respond to the above before forwarding it.
A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true believers and to more liberals just to piss them off.
And there you have it…Let your next action reveal your true self

Excerpts from this article:
Here are two of the four points that can be deduced from the info:
1. The scientists colluded in efforts to thwart Freedom of Information Act requests(across continents no less). They reference deleting data, hiding source code from requests, manipulating data to make it more annoying to use, and attempting to deny requests from people recognized as contributors to specific internet sites. Big brother really is watching you. He's just not very good at securing his web site.
2. These scientists publicly diminished opposing arguments for lack of being published in peer-reviewed scientific journals. In the background they discussed black-balling journals that did publish opposing views, and preventing opposing views from being published in journals they controlled. They even mention changing the rules midstream in arenas they control to ensure opposing views would not see the light of day. They discuss amongst themselves which scientists can be trusted and who should be excluded from having data because they may not be "predictable".
The other two (just as important) points here:

Well, this almost sounds like a lib media headline ... misleading. Unless they've changed the constitution, the president can't spend money. Sure, he can suggest it but congress has to spend it. Anyway, the congress is run by the democrats and this spending isn't a surprise to any except the most ignorant of people. They'll never raise taxes on the ignorant though, they'll only raise taxes on the corporations, which will then charge the ignorant (and everyone else) at the cash register.
As a bonus, here's a pic of Obama bolting from the White House clutching a copy of GQ magazine ... with himself on the cover.
Pic from Drudge Report:
The three, all members of the Navy's elite commando unit, have refused non-judicial punishment — called an admiral's mast — and have requested a trial by court-martial.
Ahmed Hashim Abed, whom the military code-named "Objective Amber," told investigators he was punched by his captors — and he had the bloody lip to prove it.
Now, instead of being lauded for bringing to justice a high-value target, three of the SEAL commandos, all enlisted, face assault charges and have retained lawyers.
Matthew McCabe, a Special Operations Petty Officer Second Class (SO-2), is facing three charges: dereliction of performance of duty for willfully failing to safeguard a detainee, making a false official statement, and assault.
Petty Officer Jonathan Keefe, SO-2, is facing charges of dereliction of performance of duty and making a false official statement.
Petty Officer Julio Huertas, SO-1, faces those same charges and an additional charge of impediment of an investigation.
Ok, tomorrow I want you guys to go out and capture this low life murdering scum sucking donkey f***er, but I do not want him to have a bloody lip while in our custody. Cause if he receives a bloody lip and you survive the mission to capture him, you will be tried for assault.
This just tells me to kill the son of a bitch on the mission while he was resisting.
A Belgian man diagnosed as comatose for 23 years was in fact awake and conscious the whole time, doctors have revealed.
Rom Houben, 46, had no way to tell his family and doctors he could see them and hear what they were saying after waking up following a bad car accident in 1983.
He spent more than two decades in excruciating isolation until a neurologist realised he was not in a coma — just unable to communicate.
"I dreamt myself away," Mr Houben was quoted as saying in British newspapers.
"I became a witness to my own suffering as doctors and nurses tried to speak with me until they gave up all hope."
Yes, this is the
Using a specially-adapted computer to type messages, Mr Houben has been able to describe the ordeal he endured for more than two decades.
"I cried out, but no-one heard me," he said, "I will never forget the day they discovered me - it was my second birth."
Oh my God, the tragedy, right? What they aren't telling you is "the specially-adapted computer" comes with another person who does the typing while he/she is holding the hand of the "victim."
"Oh, but Klown, I've heard of this ... this is possible ... why are you such a skeptic?"
If you really believe that I'm full of crap, you can click here to see videos of the coma victim "communicating" with his keyboard ... as well as pick up some other info if you're that interested.
Well, I'm not a medical genius but I have a thought. He can "communicate" right? That means he can do some back-and-forth with people who are "talking" to him.
Ok, here's the call. You send the "facilitator" out of the room. Then you tell the guy you're going to tell him a particular word you want him to type when the "facilitator" comes back ... you know ... to "help" him type. Then you bring the facilitator back in and say, "ok ... go ahead." Boom, solv-ed. NEXT BIG PROBLEM PLEASE.

Interestingly, the local head ACORN organizer in California, David Lagstein was caught on tape earlier this month speaking to an East County Democratic Club.
Mr. Lagstein stated: “…the attorney general is a political animal, but certainly every bit of the communication we have had with them has suggested that the fault will be found with the people that did the video and not the people with ACORN.”
Continuing, Mr. Lagstein stated: “…we are fully cooperating, some of the investigators visited our office this morning and I think they really understand what’s going on.”
Shockingly, we now learn that the ACORN office in National City (San Diego County) engaged in a massive document dump on the evening of October 9th, containing thousands upon thousands of sensitive documents, just days prior to the Attorney General’s visit. For more info and pics, go to biggovernment.com
Rawh Roh - they're in big trouble now, right? Have you heard about this on any news sources lately? I hadn't. Nor do I expect to. Well, that's what I'm here for, to help you. It's what I do.
It was announced Thursday afternoon that computer hackers had obtained 160 megabytes of e-mails from the Climate Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia (UEA) in England. Those e-mails involved communication among many scientific researchers and policy advocates with similar ideological positions all across the world. Those purported authorities were brazenly discussing the destruction and hiding of data that did not support global-warming claims.
Professor Phil Jones, the head of the Climate Research Unit, and professor Michael E. Mann at Pennsylvania State University, who has been an important scientist in the climate debate, have come under particular scrutiny. Among his e-mails, Mr. Jones talked to Mr. Mann about the "trick of adding in the real temps to each series ... to hide the decline [in temperature]." More a the Washington Times:
Senator Inhofe (R-OK) is calling for a Congressional investigation.

Anti-Obama billboard stirs controversy
Hey, you know what's NOT controversial?
Sunday, November 22, 2009
Gov. Sarah Palin talks with a woman who's (spelling original) looks resemble that of Gov. Sarah Palin at Borders bookstore during the third "Going Rogue" book signing event Thursday, November 19, 2009, in Noblesville, IN.Quothe he: This is pulled straight from Palin's Facebook page. Update: Yes the grammar in the above paragraph is from Palin's Facebook page.
If you're wondering what the big problem is, it's the word "who's." (S/B "Whose.")
I guess he's such a genius that he knows Sarah personally writes all the copy in her Facebook page. Sure, that sounds reasonable to me ... why, it would never occur to me that someone else might have written that for her. Of course, I'm not a big genius like Clayton.
Hey, Clayton, let me guess, a Palin look-a-like is creepy but an Obama look-a-like would be "just so super awesome," right?
I can never get enough of the
The more they hate her, the more I like her. Anyway, I think I'm going to start posting something every time the media/intellectuals imply she's stupid. I'll probably get tired of it quickly, but in the meantime, I'll make my point (as if you don't get it already.) It's all part of my "here's something good, I think I'll overdo it" personality.

They had been waiting for more than 24 hours, camped out on the pavements in a frigid Michigan chill. Stepping off her bus, in four-inch heels, black skirt and red blazer, came their heroine — clutching baby Trig. A roar went up, acclaiming the woman who they passionately believe is going to save America.
Should anybody have doubts about what a potent political force Mrs Palin is — and what a formidable candidate she would pose if she chose to run in the next Republican presidential primary — attending this inaugural book signing in Grand Rapids, Michigan, would dispel them.
There were “I love Sarah Palin” T-shirts, “Palin Power” posters above moose heads, “Team Sarah” jumpers, children in pushchairs, octogenarians in wheelchairs and thousands of “Sarah Palin for President” badges.
Global warming was “horse****”, one man said. Another said that he was “sick of all these bull****” politicians — she’s the straight-shooter we need”.
It is a conservative, folksy mix of guns, God and small government that grassroots Republicans adore — especially at a time of exploding deficits and record federal spending.
“2012? What are the possibilities?” one reporter asked Mrs Palin as she worked the rope line to the country music anthem Only in America. “Not rulin’ it out. Not closin’ any doors,” she replied.
The book tour is an open slap to liberal America. It ignores big cities, concentrating on smaller ones, towns and some nearby military bases, in a series of swing states such as Ohio, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Florida and Iowa — the site of the first nominating contest in the next presidential primary. The rest here:
Ha ha, the libs hate her guts. They hate her with a passion.
The media constantly implies she's an idiot. They further imply we must be stupid for liking her. Meanwhile, her book has been at the top of the bestseller lists for months ... even before it came out. Now it's finally out and sold 300,000 copies on the first day and they increased the first run from 1.5 million copies to 2.5 million.
LMAO! HEY ... MEDIA/"INTELLECTUALS" ... IT'S NOT WORKING, JACKASSES.
Maybe, just maybe, the American public is tired of the "geniuses" in Washington spending us into ridiculous debt, ruining our currency, and letting the lawyers steal all of our money. Maybe we need an "idiot" who will lead us out of that type of management.
A sheriff's statement says Westlake High School students claimed Hersel paid them to yell profanities, spit and slap him in the face. Several also claimed he offered them cash to urinate and defecate on him.
A motive wasn't clear. More here:
Look, I'm going to help both parties in this big fucking "mystery."
The motive is ... wait for it ... he wants to get off sexually. TA DA !! I'm a genius.
As for the doofus ... hey pal, you want someone to yell profanities at you and spit in your face? Try donning a military uniform and carrying a sign that says "Down with gay marriage." Then casually walk through any UC campus (preferably Berkeley.)
Sheesh, I have to help people. It's what I do.

Mmmm hmmm. Why do I get the feeling I'll be hearing this again soon?
Found it at Bits and Pieces:
Suneeta Mukherjee, country representative of the United Nations Food Population Fund (UNFPA), said women in the Philippines are the most vulnerable to the effects of climate change in the country.
“Climate change could reduce income from farming and fishing, possibly driving some women into sex work and thereby increase HIV infection," Mukherjee said during the Wednesday launch of the UNFPA annual State of World Population Report in Pasay City. More here:
Yes, the increase of a couple of degrees in temperature has caused women to become hookers. That makes plenty of sense. Pipe down, you thrashing jackass.

He states that it is a good idea because who better to judge them than the people of NY who saw the towers come down.
Now I am not going to go into what I believe are all the bad ideas about having the trials in NY, just this moron's take on it.
Since he says the people of NY, I assume he is talking about a jury trial in which there will be a large number of New Yorkers in the Jury pool.
Now I am guessing that the defense will ask that anyone selected be asked if they saw the towers come down be excluded. This will be a nightmare in picking any jury
due to exclusions for prejudicial issues. Can you possible think of how much money will be spent for these trials, I can't.

Me: "I was freezing last night."
Mom: "Get another blanket for tonight then."
Dad: "What?! Don’t spoil him, he’ll never leave."
Anyway, it looks like Michael Steele is thinking along the lines I like to see. This would be a great start and I agree with his points here but obviously there are more that should be included ... getting rid of the idiocy of political correctness, dealing with illegal aliens, and reducing the size/scope of government leap to mind.
I think the best way to reduce government is to stop them from taxing. We could start by implementing a way to stop them from increasing the debt ceiling every time they run short of money ... I mean, they don't even discuss it ... they just pass it every single time they need money ... it's absolutely ridiculous.
If the government didn't have money, they couldn't constantly hire more and more bureaucrats to fuck with people. And they wouldn't be free to constantly invent new problems to solve "for the people."
Here are some quotes from James Madison ... aka "The Father of the Constitution."
With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.
I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.
There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.
Charity is no part of the legislative duty of the government.
If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one...
It will be of little avail to the people that the laws are made by men of their own choice, if the laws be so voluminous that they cannot be read, or so incoherent that they cannot be understood; if they be repealed or revised before they are promulgated, or undergo such incessant changes that no man who knows what the law is today can guess what is will be tomorrow.
The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.
And here are some quotes from Thomas Jefferson:
Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.
The true theory of our Constitution is surely the wisest and best . . . (for) when all government . . . shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided of one government on another, and will become as . . . oppressive as the government from which we separated."
The greatest [calamity] which could befall [us would be] submission to a government of unlimited powers."
The majority, oppressing an individual, is guilty of a crime, abuses its strength, and by acting on the law of the strongest breaks up the foundations of society."

Excerpts from this article:
One Beijing shop owner wanted to see what Obama could do for sales. Liu Mingjie created "Oba Mao" T-shirts, with the president wearing the uniform of the Red Guards, who caused chaos during the Cultural Revolution in the 1960s.
"It's just kind of avant garde," Liu said of the images, saying they were no longer political, just fashion.
He sold hundreds of the shirts, to both foreigners and Chinese, until authorities told shops selling the shirts to stop.
"They're not allowed to sell these things because there are images of Obama wearing the uniform of the Red Army," a woman answering the phone at the Dongcheng district Administration for Commerce and Industry said Thursday.
Oba Mao -- LMAO!! Castro loves him, Chavez loves him, all the dictators love him ... it's as if he's the episphincter of the communist world. Yes, I just made that word up. It's a keeper.
I know he is not considered a terrorist ( aka undocumented enemy )by the current administration, but he is to most of us.
I can't wait to see how long and how much money its going to cost us for the upcoming terrorists (undocumented enemy) trials.

Excerpts from this article at WTOP News:
The 48-year-old died by injection at 9:11 p.m. Tuesday as relatives of the victims watched from behind glass, separated from the rest of the 27 witnesses at Greensville Correctional Center, south of Richmond.
Muhammad stepped into Virginia's death chamber and within seconds was lying on a gurney, tapping his left foot, his arms spread wide with a needle dug into each.
"Mr. Muhammad, do you have any last words?" the warden asked. Muhammad, looking calm and stoic, said nothing.
After the first of the three-drug lethal cocktail was administered, Muhammad blinked repeatedly and took about seven deep breaths. Within a minute, he was motionless.
Nelson Rivera, whose wife, Lori Ann Lewis-Rivera, was gunned down as she vacuumed her van at a Maryland gas station, said that when he watched Muhammad's chest moving for the last time, he was glad.
"I feel better. I think I can breathe better," he said. "I'm glad he's gone because he's not going to hurt anyone else."
J. Wyndal Gordon, one of Muhammad's attorneys, described his client in his final hours as fearless and still insisting he was innocent. Innocent? Yeah, sure.
"He will die with dignity _ dignity to the point of defiance," Gordon said before going inside to watch the execution. Whew, he died with dignity ... but he's still dead. We sure didn't want him to die in humiliation ... that REALLY would have made us feel bad.
If you see any of our men and women who are serving in our military walk over to them and thank them or wave, nod, give them a thumbs anything to say thanks. So many of us watch them walk by and are to busy talking or just don't have the time.

“He began that year sleeping in a firehouse in Camden, New Jersey, and ended it tending bar in a saloon in Wheeling, West Virginia. In between those events he won 22 games for the Philadelphia Athletics, played left end for the Business Men’s Rugby Football Club of Grand Rapids, Michigan, toured the nation in a melodrama called The Stain of Guilt, courted, married and became separated from May Wynne Skinner of Lynn, Massachusetts, saved a woman from drowning, accidentally shot a friend through the hand, and was bitten by a lion.”
And that was just 1903. In one game against the Athletics, Waddell was at bat in the eighth inning with two out and a tying run on second. The catcher threw to second, trying to pick off the runner, but overthrew, and the ball went into the outfield. The runner took off for home. As he rounded third, the center fielder hurled the ball in to home plate …
… and Waddell, to everyone’s horror, knocked it out of the park.
He was declared out for interference. “They’d been feeding me curves all afternoon,” he told a flabbergasted Connie Mack, “and this was the first straight ball I’d looked at!”

Want to know how your rep voted? Click here:
The vote was 220- Yes and 215-No. Don't you just love how they can ram this shit down your throat with a five-vote difference? So 51% of the people can vote to install a massive, permanent, government program ... against the wishes of the other 49% ... and then make the other 49% pay for it along with the 51% . Yep, sounds EXACTLY like what the founding fathers had in mind, the tyranny of the mob.
Let me ask you something. Do you think the states would have ratified the original Constitution if they thought for one second that the federal government would get this powerful and seize power like this? This is why the founders set out to severely limit the power of the federal government to certain "enumerated powers" in the Constitution.
The Democrats/libs/commies like to point to the general welfare clause in the Constitution to justify massive taxes and power grabs like this. I mean, think about it ... why in the hell would they go through the trouble of enumerating the powers if they were just going to trump the whole thing with the general welfare clause?
If that is so, then why did they write the entire Constitution? Why didn't they just write "Congress can do anything it damn well pleases as long as it's for the general welfare of the people." There you go, a one sentence Constitution. Do you think the several states would have ratified that? You have to be an idiot liberal to have logic like that. Dirty rat bastard commies.

The postings were among a handful of possible red flags that preceded Thursday's rampage, in which 13 people were killed and 38 were wounded in the deadliest mass shooting on a U.S. military installation to date. Friends and acquaintances said Hasan had been increasingly agitated over the U.S. wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and he reportedly said the U.S. "war on terror" was a "war on Muslims."
Oh, did I mention he yelled "Allahu Akbar" before opening fire?
Yes, and if you have any further question in your mind, you can click here for even MORE piles of evidence. And yet ...
Yes Chrissie, some people will never know. Some people will be perpetually in the dark ... and many of them will be the doofy-looking fucksticks on MSNBC. After all, they need to get past this story so they can go back to covering the REALLY sick and deranged murderous types ... you know ... like the tea party protesters.
"During my last night's shift in the ER, I had the pleasure of evaluating a patient with a shiny new gold tooth, multiple elaborate tattoos, a very expensive brand of tennis shoes and a new cellular telephone equipped with her favorite R&B tune for a ringtone. Glancing over the chart, one could not help noticing her payer status: Medicaid.
She smokes more than one costly pack of cigarettes every day and, somehow, still has money to buy beer.
And our Congress expects me to pay for this woman's health care? Our nation's health care crisis is not a shortage of quality hospitals, doctors or nurses. It is a crisis of culture — a culture in which it is perfectly acceptable to spend money on vices while refusing to take care of one's self or, heaven forbid, purchase health insurance. A culture that thinks "I can do whatever I want to because someone else will always take care of me".
Life is really not that hard. Most of us reap what we sow.
Don't you Agree?

Another commenter said it was just old so I checked further and it appears that is correct (just old.) So I removed the "This is a hoax" statement. Anyway, I'm not going to work any further on this and you'll do your own research if you're smart. Thanks to "cachick1111" and everyone who cared enough to post a comment. Maybe we can all learn something.
Vermont State Rep. Fred Maslack has read the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution as well as Vermont ’s own Constitution very carefully, and his strict interpretation of these documents is popping some eyeballs in New England and elsewhere. Maslack recently proposed a bill to register non-gun-owners and require them to pay a $500 fee to the state. Thus Vermont would become the first state to require a permit for the luxury of going about unarmed and assess a fee of $500 for the privilege of not owning a gun. Maslack read the “militia” phrase of the Second Amendment as not only affirming the right of the individual citizen to bear arms, but as a clear mandate to do so. He believes that universal gun ownership was advocated by the Framers of the Constitution as an antidote to a “monopoly of force” by the government as well as criminals
Vermont’s constitution states explicitly that “the people have a right to bear arms for the defense of themselves and the State” and those persons who “conscientiously scrupulous of bearing arms” shall be required to “pay such equivalent.” Clearly, says Maslack, Vermonters have a constitutional obligation to arm themselves so that they are capable of responding to “any situation that may arise”. Under the bill, adults who choose not to own a firearm would be required to register their name, address, Social Security Number, and driver’s license number with the state. “There is a legitimate government interest in knowing who is prepared to defend the state should they be asked to do so,” Maslack says Vermont already boasts a high rate of gun ownership along with the least restrictive laws of any state – it’s currently the only state that allows a citizen to carry a concealed firearm without a permit. This combination of plenty of guns and few laws regulating them has resulted in a crime rate that is the third lowest in the nation.

Clark County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Jim Backus said Monday that Strey's call on Oct. 24 led deputies to cite her for misdemeanor drunken driving with a blood-alcohol level double the legal limit to drive. She makes her first court appearance Dec. 10.
Backus said drunken drivers reporting themselves is rare.
In the 911 call, Strey said she wanted to report a drunken driver and the dispatcher asked if she was behind the suspect vehicle. "I am them," Strey said. She then followed the dispatcher's advice to pull over and turn on her flashers, telling him she had been "drinking all night long." From the Associated Press:
I think it would have occurred to my drunk ass to just pull over and call one of my friends to come get me. Then again, I'm a boner-fyd, certifyd, genius.
Excerpts from The American Thinker
The MSM has mentioned Craig's role as Bill Clinton's impeachment lawyer, but mostly has omitted mention of Craig's role as chief facilitator for Fidel Castro's shanghaiing of Elian Gonzalez.
Upon accepting the case, Gregory Craig had flown to Cuba for a meeting with Fidel Castro.
Uh-huh ... Castro's lawyer ... okie dokie.
Excerpts from this story at NewsBusters:
In response to a question from Fox News anchor Jeff Asman, Napolitano said the following (bolds are mine throughout this post):
In an interview later that morning, Napolitano left Holder speechless (also available in the fourth item at this link):
The order issued by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals four days ago .... said once the INS chooses the guardian, and the INS chose Lazaro Gonzalez (Elian's paternal great uncle -- Ed.) to be the guardian, and an application for asylum has been made by the guardian, the INS can not change the guardian and that's exactly what they did here."
Asman: "So is this executive overreach?"
Napolitano: "This is more than executive overreach. This is contempt of the circuit court of appeals order. This is a high class kidnapping is what it is, sanctioned by no law, sanctioned by no judge..."
Napolitano: Tell me, Mr. Holder, why did you not get a court order authorizing you to go in and get the boy?
Holder: Because we didn't need a court order. INS can do this on its own.
Napolitano: You know that a court order would have given you the cloak of respectability to have seized the boy.
Holder: We didn't need an order.
Napolitano: Then why did you ask the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals for such an order if you didn't need one?
Napolitano: The fact is, for the first time in history you have taken a child from his residence at gunpoint to enforce your custody position, even though you did not have an order authorizing it.
Earlier in that interview, as noted in a different CyberAlert item on the same day, Holder showed that he wouldn't admit the truth, even when in plain sight:
Napolitano: When is the last time a boy, a child, was taken at the point of a gun without an order of a judge. Unprecedented in American history."
Holder: "He was not taken at the point of a gun."
Napolitano: "We have a photograph showing he was taken at the point of a gun."
Holder: "They were armed agents who went in there who acted very sensitively..."
I feel a little silly writing this. I mean ... it's all common knowledge right? The media has harped and harped and harped on this until we're all blue in the face.
