Boehner hammers the "Democratics"


(CNSNews.com) – Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he’s had enough of environmentalists standing in the way of energy production over the last three decades, remarking, “It’s just about damn time that we ought to have a national energy policy and do something the American people want us to do.”

At a Tuesday press conference on Capitol Hill with several other House Republicans, Boehner was asked about the relationship between high gas prices and investment speculators on Wall Street.

Boehner said, “The price of gas is driven by two factors. It’s driven by supply and it’s driven by demand.  And the fact is, is that supply, most of it, comes from the Middle East where there’s an awful lot of turmoil.  People are concerned about whether that flow of oil is going to continue.”

Boehner continued:  “Secondly, when you look at demand we’re moving into the summer driving season and the [Environmental Protection Agency] EPA requires 30 different blends of gasoline to be produced, now for the summer months in most of the country.  And then to try to produce those 30 different blends and then ship them puts an awful lot of demand on the system as a result.  You’ve got much higher prices.” More here:

How about that - strictly logic and fact.  Easy to understand ... unless you're an idiot lib.  Only took them 30 years to have "had enough."  Good job, boys ... you showed 'em how tolerant you are.

Here's some more for you ... they hate coal and nuclear too.  They love electric cars -- but they block, hamper, regulate, harass, and confound the companies that produce electricity.  See how logical that is?  Of course, just because gas goes up is no sign your electricity, food, etc etc etc will go up, right?  Ha ha ha ha -- keep voting for Democratics.

So THIS is what a stone feels like when it skips off a pond



And Wombat found this one which has more viewing angles etc ... to me, it looked like he pulled his chute at the end.

Man mysteriously bursts into flames


This is not a pic of the guy in the article.  I found this pic here.  And the first paragraph of the story had me laughing and laughing because, whaaaaaa?

Ok, now back to the original story. 

HAVELOCK, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man is dead after police say he accidentally drank from a jar of gasoline and then smoked a cigarette.

Havelock police received a 911 call about 9:55 p.m. Monday after 43-year-old Gary Allen Banning set himself on fire. Banning was transported to UNC Burn Center in Chapel Hill, where he died early Tuesday morning.

City spokeswoman Diane Miller said investigators believe Banning was at a friend’s apartment when he apparently mistook a jar of gasoline sitting by the kitchen sink for a beverage. After taking a gulp, he spit the gas out and got some on his clothes.

Sometime later, investigators say Banning went outside to smoke a cigarette and burst into flames. From here:

Hmmmm, how tragic.  Someone should make an additive to gasoline so it really smells up a storm ... so that even people who are hammered out of their minds would be able to tell there is gasoline about ... and so extreme caution should be used.

As it is, anyone of us could have been a victim of this most unfortunate accidink.

Also, how come it's never reported when someone lollygags into flames?  Peeps are always bursting into them.

"You mean INflammable" means 'extra flammable'? I guess that's credible ... or should I say 'INcredible'"

Dang


WASHINGTON (AP) -- In the Jurassic era, even the flea was a beast, compared to its minuscule modern descendants. These pesky bloodsuckers were nearly an inch long.

New fossils found in China are evidence of the oldest fleas - from 125 million to 165 million years ago, said Diying Huang of the Nanjing Institute of Geology and Paleontology. 

Their disproportionately long proboscis, or straw-like mouth, had sharp weapon-like serrated edges that helped them bite and feed from their super-sized hosts, he and other researchers reported Wednesday in the journal Nature.

The ancient female fleas were close to twice the size of the males, researchers found, which fits with modern fleas.

But Engel said it's not just the size that was impressive about the nine flea fossils. It was their fearsome beak capable of sticking into and sucking blood from the hides of certain dinosaurs, probably those that had feathers.

These flea beaks "had almost like a saw running down the side," Engel said. "This thing was packing a weapon. They were equipped to dig into something."

 It shouldn't seem too surprising that there were large fleas more than 100 million years ago. If you go back even farther in time, ancestors of dragonflies and damsel flies had 3-foot wingspans, Engel said. More here:

"Democratics" are at it again -- man, do they hate guns or what?


Iowa House Democrats this morning left the Capitol in protest of two gun bills the Republican majority had planned to debate today that critics contend would make the state part of the “Wild, Wild West.” 

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy accused House Leader Linda Upmeyer of failing to properly inform legislators about planned debate today on the bills. 

The short notice hindered Democrats from offering amendments to improve the bills, McCarthy said. But Upmeyer, R-Garner, shot back this morning that Democrats did have adequate warning, and suggested their flight from the Capitol was an attempt to make a political scene. 

 “Iowans didn’t send us down here just to do easy stuff,” she said. “The Second Amendment is a question that many Iowans would like placed before them. I don’t know why they’re afraid to have a debate on a subject just because they don’t like the subject. That seems ludicrous to me.” 

One bill would alter the state constitution to specifically include gun rights. Another would rewrite the law on “reasonable force” so that a person may use force — including deadly force — against someone who they believe threatens to kill or cause serious injury or who is committing a violent felony. “

Ever notice ... "Democratics seem to have a HUGE problem with common sense.

(Upmeyer) said they will debate those bills today whether we like it or not,” said McCarthy, D-Des Moines. “I told her that we’ve been double crossed, and we will not be debating those bills today.” 

 In response, Democrats have moved to an undisclosed location. 

Republicans hold 60 of 100 seats and could debate the bill without Democrats since they have a quorum. The majority party sets the calendar for debate and guides the course of business on the House floor. 

“We have been double-crossed as a caucus, and we’re not going to sit back and be treated with historic misuse of power,” McCarthy said. More here:

Right, meanwhile "Democratics" have no problems shoving things down your throat with a 51-49 vote ... but 60-40?  No way ... "Historic misuse of power."  Funny, huh?

And the thing is, this law doesn't force you to do anything ... it just expands the freedom of the people.  Democratics don't like that, nossir.
What is the definition of irony?
Isn't It Ironic? The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever.Meanwhile, the Park Service asks us to "please do not feed the animals" because the animals may grow dependent and not learn to take care of themselves.

I just didn't copy and paste this one I first used the color red to do some highlighting. It would be nice to see some postive remarks at my meager attempts at improvement.

CNN: We're going to make his life miserable.

Just look at the glee in their eyes as they salivate over this juicy story. They just can't wait to get their teeth into this savory morsel. They are going to make this 1%er pay and pay and PAY and get what he so RICHLY deserves. CAN.NOT.WAIT. "We're going to make his life miserable" one utters as she and the other witches toil over their boiling caldron.


What's that you say? It's all a hoax? But CNN reported on it! It MUST be true! Okay, maybe it's not true but it's accurate, right? "Accurate but false" is good enough for Libs.

What's this? Kid Rock and his band play a tune at a Romney event?


ROYAL OAK, Mich. - It had all the fixings of a Mitt Romney rally, and then Kid Rock hit the stage. 

On the eve of the Michigan primary, musician Kid Rock sang a live version of "Born Free," the official campaign song of the Romney campaign and a song that, until tonight, has only been heard in its recorded version, blaring through speakers at events from New Hampshire to Iowa to South Carolina, and everywhere in between.

An e-mail from a friend

I did not see if his info is correct I just copied and pasted

Cost to operate a Chevy VoltEric Bolling test drove the Chevy Volt at the invitation of General Motors.For four days in a row, the fully charged battery lasted only 25 miles before the Volt switched to the reserve gasoline engine.Eric calculated the car got 30 mpg including the 25 miles it ran on the battery. So, the range including the 9 gallon gas tank and the 16 kwh battery is approximately 270 miles. It will take you 4 1/2 hours to drive 270 miles at 60 mph. Then add 10 hours to charge the battery and you have a total trip time of 14.5 hours. In a typical road trip your average speed (including charging time) would be 20 mph.According to General Motors, the Volt battery hold 16 kwh of electricity. It takes a full 10 hours to charge a drained battery.The cost for the electricity to charge the Volt is never mentioned so I looked up what I pay for electricity.I pay approximately (it varies with amount used and the seasons) $1.16 per kwh.16 kwh x $1.16 per kwh = $18.56 to charge the battery.$18.56 per charge divided by 25 miles = $0.74 per mile to operate the Volt using the battery.Compare this to a similar size car with a gasoline engine only that gets 32 mpg.$3.19 per gallon divided by 32 mpg = $0.10 per mile.The gasoline powered car cost about $15,000 while the Volt costs $46,000.So Obama wants us to pay 3 times as much for a car that costs more that 7 time as much to run and takes 3 times as long to drive across country.

Short story (true)
Yesterday while having a cold beer at a local bar our current Pres. came on the tv. During the following conversation the guy next to me complained about our current economy and so on. I asked if he had voted for Obama and he said he did and I then asked if he would vote for him again. His answer was yes "he would have to". I ask why did he have to and his answer was he has always voted democrat (let me add here he was approx.72 y.o.a.) and he would continue. I ask why not vote for someone who could be better than the current politicians we have now.
Well no answer came and he turned to the guy on the other side and started taling about the upcoming daytona race. I could go on here but like his vote it would be a waste on time.

Rich Americans get robbed - impossible to have predicted it


Bold is mine:

(CNN) -- Twenty-two Carnival Cruise Lines passengers were robbed of valuables and their passports during a shore excursion in the Mexico seaside resort of Puerto Vallarta, cruise officials said late Saturday.

The passengers were robbed Thursday during a guided trail excursion, according to a statement released by the cruise line.

The cruise line did not provide details of the robbery, saying only that there were no injuries and the tour was suspended on future sailings under further notice.

The robbery comes two weeks after the U.S. State Department issued a travel warning to Americans to avoid all but essential travel to all or parts of 14 Mexican states, including the state of Jalisco. Puerto Vallarta is the sixth-largest city in Jalisco. More here:

Hmmm, so Mexico is dangerous these days huh?  How come I haven't heard this?  Perhaps the news hasn't made to to where I live yet ... under this rock.

Registering Tim Tebow and Tom Brady to Vote in Minnesota

What's this? Clarity of thought?


CHEYENNE — State representatives on Friday advanced legislation to launch a study into what Wyoming should do in the event of a complete economic or political collapse in the United States.

House Bill 85 passed on first reading by a voice vote. It would create a state-run government continuity task force, which would study and prepare Wyoming for potential catastrophes, from disruptions in food and energy supplies to a complete meltdown of the federal government.

The task force would look at the feasibility of Wyoming issuing its own alternative currency, if needed. And House members approved an amendment Friday by state Rep. Kermit Brown, R-Laramie, to have the task force also examine conditions under which Wyoming would need to implement its own military draft, raise a standing army, and acquire strike aircraft and an aircraft carrier.

The bill’s sponsor, state Rep. David Miller, R-Riverton, has said he doesn’t anticipate any major crises hitting America anytime soon. But with the national debt exceeding $15 trillion and protest movements growing around the country, Miller said Wyoming — which has a comparatively good economy and sound state finances — needs to make sure it’s protected should any unexpected emergency hit the U.S.

Several House members spoke in favor of the legislation, saying there was no harm in preparing for the worst. More here:

Preparing for the worst?  Or should that be "preparing for the inevitable?"  If this country keeps electing our intellectual betters and driving the country further and further into debt/financial chaos then I think it's obvious and inevitable that the country will break down.  Of course, I'm not a genius.

Anyway, what is Wyoming thinking about?  Everyone knows geniuses never have to apply common sense and preparedness.

Very rare ... green company squanders easy-gotten loot


A123 Systems, an electric car battery company once touted as a stimulus "success story" by former Gov. Jennifer Granhom, D-Mich., has laid off 125 employees since receiving $390 million in government subsidies -- but is still handing out big pay raises to company executives.

"[T]he company has laid off 125 employees and had a net loss of $172 million through the first three quarters of 2011," the Mackinac Center for Public Policy reports, observing that the company's primary customer, Fisker Automotive, is also struggling financially. " More here:

Boy, they sure named these companies right ... "green" companies -- lmao.

Yes, the cronies of the politicians and lobbyists know how to fill out the paperwork and get your money so they can give giant salaries and bonuses to their buddies ... and contribute back to the politicians who help them.  Awesome.

The big shocker is how these technologies don't work and the companies go broke ... cuz who on earth could have predicted that?  (Apparently not our intellectual betters.)

Portrait of a dumbass as a young criminal


Authorities say a man was arrested after he dropped his gun during a robbery and returned to the scene to try and buy it back from the victims. 

Cedrick Mitchell, 39, faces charges of armed home invasion and resisting an officer, according to online jail records. He is being held without bond in Manatee County Jail. Police said Mitchell entered a motel room and asked for pills from the two men inside. When they responded that they didn't have any, Mitchell took out his gun and told the men "everything you got," according to the Bradenton Herald.

Mitchell dropped his gun when the men began to fight with him, police say. One of the victims sprayed him with pepper spray and Mitchell ran away, authorities said. He returned to the motel room minutes later and offered the men $40 in exchange for the gun he dropped, the Herald reported.

He was pepper-sprayed in the face again. Police found Mitchell when he was running away. He has a criminal history that includes robbery and battery, according to the newspaper. From here:

Really? No kidding? You mean this isn't his first brush with the law? 

Oh, I bet I know what happened ... he broke out of jail. He had to be in jail right? I mean I assume you have to stay in jail for a long time if you commit robbery and battery and so forth.

Do you think a lib was responsible



If this is true it had to be a Lib.

Nope, it's all clear of Klingons here


It must be cartoon day


I've posted these Dilbert ones before but here they are again. They're among my favorites. 



IRS experiencing "snafus" etc


Last month, the IRS said there would be a week delay for the earliest filers because of a computer snafu in getting up a system to find identity theft before refund checks were actually issued.

The federal agency said those people filing after Jan. 26 would not have delays.

But the agency continued to have a slower response partly because they had a backlog from the earliest cases being delayed, tax preparers said. More here:

Yes, all perfectly understandable, right?  But just try being late with your payment and explaining it with a reference to a "snafu" or "backlog."  Go ahead, they'll fine the crap out of you and take your stuff understand.

Clear case of child abuse here


STAMFORD -- A North Stamford father trying to make his pre-teenaged son listen to President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech last month was arrested on a warrant Wednesday and accused of striking his son with a coffee mug when the youth would not pay attention. More here:

Oh ... OH ... sheesh, I thought the child abuse part was for making the kid watch the speech.

This cartoon almost says it all


This cartoon ignores something.  I'll assume it's ignored for brevity (which, as they say, is the soul of wit.) 

But once again, the lib position requires them to take my money.  This is where they are going to lose.  I don't agree to be their part- time slave.  I don't agree to letting them make me a part-time slave, even if the "majority" vote for it.

There will ALWAYS be people like this ... and this the founding fathers knew.   They wrote the entire constitution with these people in mind.  They wanted to protect us from these tyrants forever.

The libs will steal your freedom and justify it by saying "hey, majority rules" you either agree with us or you're a greedy racist.

But the majority doesn't "rule," does it?  The majority can decide certain (enumerated) things but they are NOT allowed to vote to steal my freedom.  And yet, they have managed to circumvent the constitution for the last 80-100 years or so with the help of the courts.  

The good news?  The last election started to turn things around.  The Tea Party was formed and we threw a ton of these liberal jackasses out on their ears.  Let's keep it going, shall we?

Oh those idiot libs ... will they ever learn?



Fact: David Cross once snorted cocaine at the White House Correspondents' Dinner. 

The actor confessed to the persistent rumor in an interview in the March issue of Playboy magazine, saying he pulled the stunt while sitting some 65 feet away from President Obama. 

 "It wasn’t even that much cocaine. It was literally the size of, I don’t know, a tick. It was a tiny granule of coke that I put on my wrist and said, 'Watch this. I need a witness,'" Cross recalled. 

"And then I ducked under the table and did it. It wasn’t like I got high," he continued. "The jolt was similar to licking an empty espresso cup.

It wasn’t about that. It was just about being able to say that I did it, that I did cocaine in the same room as the president." (Bold italic is mine)

Well, first of all let's take a break to acknowledge/notice that, being an idiot-lib, he did not disappoint when it comes to the "It's not about _____, it's about _____" lecture. 

 Libs can't go five minutes without releasing one of those.  One theory is that eating alfalfa sprouts in your sandwich causes you to release one of those "about" lectures ... much like beans/gas. (I don't buy it though, libs have been eating alfalfa sprouts for much longer than this idiom has been around.)

Secondly, he did it "for the story."  But what worthwhile person is going to be impressed with this story?  And if you aren't trying to impress anyone then why do it?

Ok, back to the idiot lib.

As for the White House incident, Cross said he's not "ashamed" but regrets the embarrassment it caused his fiancee, actress Amber Tamblyn, who had invited him to the dinner. (Bold italics mine)


"I was her date, her plus-one, and she got dragged through the mud because of what I did. She had nothing to do with it. And because of that she’ll never be invited to the White House again. That’s not cool." More here:

"Not cool."  Ever notice?  Libs are VERY concerned with being cool.

And people should NEVER be held accountable for their judgement, right lib? She took a chance on you and you screwed her, you braying jackass ... call me shocked. 

In turn, here's a little shocker for YOU ... thinking people (not libs) figure she's a dumbass and not to be trusted since her judgement clearly shows she isn't capable of making solid decisions. 

It's just like your parents always told you (unless you were raised by idiot libs) ... when you hang around with the wrong people, bad things are going to happen and YOU are going to get caught up in the blame.

This is great though.  This is the kind of thing that turns libs into conservatives.  It's the kind of thing that makes a thinking person say "wait a minute" ... and this (along with suffering humiliation /embarrassment) is the first sign of becoming a conservative.

Cindy Shitstain, I mean "Sheehan" - doesn't like taxes, nossir


SACRAMENTO, CA (KXTV) - The federal government has filed a lawsuit to force anti-war activist Cindy Sheehan to provide her financial records to the Internal Revenue Service. 

An IRS revenue officer said Sheehan refused to answer any questions about her finances after receiving a summons at her Vacaville home. 

The U.S. Attorney's office on Tuesday filed a petition to enforce the IRS summons. 

The summons ordered Sheehan to produce bank account statements for the period from August through early November 2011. More here:

Right ... she's a lame-o with no talent ... but her son died in the war so she uses that to get famous and make tons of money.  BUT ... she doesn't like to pay her taxes ... nossir.


I'm not a pervert ... seriously ... I'm not!!!


The coach thought it was all in good fun. But when photos leaked of the boys on his Howell, Mich., high school hockey team performing skits in a bar -- in wigs and women's lingerie -- school officials ended the coach's 10-year career, and fired his three assistants. 

Every year, when the varsity hockey team went to Marquette, Mich., for a tournament, they engaged in what the coach, Randy Montrose, calls a "rite of passage," reports Detroit TV station WXYZ. The players donned ladies' undergarments and performed a comedic talent show. He emphasized that all the boys take part voluntarily. More here:

Yes, being an adult male in a position of authority over these high school kids, I'll just dress them up in lingerie ... nobody'll say anything about it.  After all, why would they?  I mean, I'm not a pervert or anything.

Plus, it's just hazing, right?  Nobody ever says anything about good ol' hazing.  At least not where I'm from ... which is under this rock.

Oh NOOOO - the media might become biased!!!


Philadelphia’s two daily newspapers have long been accused of liberal bias, but critics say a group of potential buyers led by former Gov. Ed Rendell would turn the papers into mere mouthpieces of the Democratic Party in a 2012 swing state. 

Mr. Rendell, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, is teaming with George Norcross, the Democratic Party boss of southern New Jersey, and others in an effort to purchase the Philadelphia Inquirer, the Daily News and the company’s website, philly.com. 

There is reportedly at least one other bidder for the media company, the most influential in Pennsylvania, though that party has not publicly identified itself. 

“The prospect of Rendell’s group owning the newspapers is like the foxes watching the henhouse and all of the sacred cows,” said Paul Davies, former deputy editorial page editor at the Inquirer. “Essentially, the Inquirer will cease to exist as a legitimate newspaper. It will become the insiders’ house organ.” More here:

LMAO ... let's all panic ... it's the worst of all possible worlds ... a newspaper might become biased to the left.  And by biased I mean it will say that all lefties are geniuses and all conservatives are greedy racists ... you know, just like almost every news-like-paper (and news-like television show) in the country.

Oh whatever will we do? *wringing hands*

Climate "scientist" busted

Peter H. Gleick


Excerpts:

Theft, deceit and outright lies: How ugly can climate science get?

 Prominent climate scientist Peter H. Gleick relied on deceit and subterfuge to solicit a cache of sensitive internal documents from the conservative think tank The Heartland Institute before leaking them to the press -- a fresh scandal that further darkens the highly charged debate on planetary climate change.

Highly charged debate? I don't think so. More like the media saying "no, no, it's real ... really ... for real!" And regular people saying "uh, nay."

Gleick -- an internationally recognized hydroclimatologist and author of the respected annual report “The World’s Water” -- said he received an anonymous document in the mail that tipped him off to what he described as Heartland’s efforts to muddy public understanding of climate science and policy.

He released the documents to expose their efforts “to cast doubt on climate science.”

LOL. "Internationally recognized." By whom? Other "scientists" who are making a living by stealing my money off research grants.  He just looks like some dumbass hippie to me ... a hippie who can't make an honest living ... he has to steal my money.

Yes, he received an anonymous document ... what a coinkydink. And let me tell you, if there's one thing these boys don't like it's "casting doubt upon climate science." It's like a hockey player gettin' "high-stuck."

The documents consist of climate policy statements, fundraising documents, board meeting notifications and even tax filings -- as well as a memo titled “Confidential Memo: 2012 Heartland Climate Strategy.” That memo, apparently the anonymous document that inspired Gleick to take action, describes plans to create an anti-global warming science campaign for grade schools that will “dissuad[e] teachers from teaching science.”

The Heartland Institute calls it a forgery -- and Bast says he believes Gleick may have written it.

A forgery? Hmmmmm. How will they prove that?

"Gleick also claims he did not write the forged memo, but only stole the documents to confirm the content of the memo he received from an anonymous source,” Bast said. “This too is unbelievable. Many independent commentators already have concluded the memo was most likely written by Gleick.” 

 "We hope Gleick will make a more complete confession in the next few days,” Bast wrote. More here:

Well, he's an idiot lib so he'll be doing no "confessing." I'm guessing the only reason he "confessed" to this much is he knew he was already busted. I hope they get a forensic writing expert to investigate whether he wrote it ... and if he did write it, what should happen to him? I mean, after all, he was only trying to help.

A study in psychology



(Reuters) - About 2,000 Afghans protested outside the main U.S. military base in Afghanistan on Tuesday over a report that foreign soldiers improperly disposed of copies of the Koran.

U.S. helicopters fired flares to try to break up as many as 2,000 demonstrators who massed outside several gates to the base, chanting anti-foreigner slogans and throwing stones.

Roshna Khalid, the provincial governor's spokeswoman, said copies of the Muslim holy book had been burnt inside Bagram airbase, an hour's drive north of the capital Kabul, citing accounts from local laborers.

"The laborers normally take the garbage outside and they found the remains of Korans," Khalid said. More here:

Yes, yes ... by all means ... go apeshit. 

That's IT ... that's IT ... they knocked the chip off our shoulder ... YOU ALL SAW IT ... AND NOW, SOMEONE MUST DIE!!!

Jeesh, let's all get in a crowd and harrumph together, shall we?  Yes, I think we shall.  Because, hey, you've insulted our honor ... or something.  You've done SOMETHING to us (even though you haven't really done anything to us,) we make up the "rules" and we say you DID SOMETHING TO US.  And that REQUIRES retaliation.  Why?  Because ... that's why.

This whole mob mindset cracks me up.  They all get together and convince themselves that they must ... they simply MUST go bananas if "X" occurs and then they all sit around and try to convince each other that "X" is about to occur or has occurred (aka - chip has been knocked off shoulder.)

They all know that the others expect them to become so indignant that nothing matters except that someone pay (i.e. die) for this most heinous of transgressions.  Seriously, all rational thought aside, it is time now for conspicuous/public irrational action.  As this is the only way to regain your honor (replace the chip.)

And you can see this mindset in other insane people as well.  For example, prisoners who are murderers have convinced themselves that they are better than rapists and/or child molesters, (grrrrrrr, those child molesters are low, etc.)  They all agree and harrumph with each other over this "fact" (that they, themselves have made up.)

Anyway, people get ALL bent out of shape over certain things that society has convinced them are "important" (but really are not important at all.)  I know several of them.  Can you think of any others?

Many of them really hit home with the bleating sheep.  Baaaaaa - baaaaaaaa

Way to go, idiot libs


Violent crime so far this year in the District has spiked sharply — a 40 percent increase that includes twice as many robberies at gunpoint than at this time last year.

Across the city, all police districts are reporting increases in violent crime, and all but one have had double-digit percentage increases, according to internal Metropolitan Police Department documents. The documents contained preliminary crime data for the city as of Thursday. More here:

You know what they need, don't you?  Yes, more gun control.  Because, as we all know, criminals don't kill people, guns kill people.  Much in the same way as pencils misspell words.

Oops, the Klown screwed up

Hey, Remember this car? 


In a prior post I said it was owned by a Saudi Prince.  And this started me on a tirade about how we block/regulate-to-death drilling, exploration, transportation, and refining in our own country while we pay through the nose to people who hate us.

Anyway, guess what ... this car does NOT belong to a Saudi Prince.  Nor is it encrusted in "diaminks."  Nope, it's encrusted in crystals.  An alert idiot-lib brought it to my attention with the following comment.

Talk about exposing idiocy.... this has widely been known to be a hoax. This is not some Saudi prince's car. You using a completely fraudulent claim to promote your politically biased B.S. is fraudulent in itself. You should really look into your information and think for yourself before you, yourself, start "bleating" it all over the internet.

Of course, you will probably just delete this post and continue to spout your biased falsehoods.

Real info is found here: http://www.snopes.com/photos/automobiles/diamondmercedes.asp
I want to thank the lib for bringing this to my attention so I can alert others to this misinformation.

But I like how she ignores the actual point of the post to focus on this laregly irrelevant detail. Brilliant, I tell ya, just brilliant.  This way she can PROVE I'm "wrong."  Good job, lib.  We all feel much smarter now.

I've noticed, libs do lots of "proving."  And all the "proving" ends the same way ... you should give up your freedom and money (private property) to them ... for the greater good.

And finally she claims I am "politically biased."  

All I can say is, I want you libs (Democratics & Republicratics) to tend to your own business and leave me alone.  Keep your hands off me and out of my pockets. Stop involving me in the idiocy you call a life.  Stop involving my children in it.  Stop suing the crap out of every legitimate business in the country.  Stop costing me money.  

Yep, I guess she's right.  I'm politically biased.

Is that so? Really? (Mildly funny)

Doofus finally croaks


He crossed the Atlantic because it was there, and the Pacific because it was also there. 

He made both crossings in a rowboat because it, too, was there, and because the lure of sea, spray and sinew, and the history-making chance to traverse two oceans without steam or sail, proved irresistible.

Uh, sinew?

In 1969, after six months alone on the Atlantic battling storms, sharks and encroaching madness, John Fairfax, who died this month at 74, became the first lone oarsman in recorded history to traverse any ocean.

In 1972, he and his girlfriend, Sylvia Cook, sharing a boat, became the first people to row across the Pacific, a yearlong ordeal during which their craft was thought lost. (The couple survived the voyage, and so, for quite some time, did their romance.) More (much, MUCH more) here:

A yearlong ordeal, huh.  Yes, well I have some questions and comments.

Who paid his bills in the meantime?  And who paid for the "rowboat?"  Yes, a 22' rowboat.  And were there any "safety boats" tagging along?

Looks like no expense was spared on the decorations.

Now, why would you really do this?  Bored?  You think you're bored NOW, jump in that boat and commence with the rowing.  The scenery?  Mmmmm, I McDoubt it.  Do you have an irresistible hunger for fame?  I think we're getting closer.

Marketing to sheep ... I mean, morons


I have decided to ensure that I never purchase products with appeals to the sheep on their labels/advertising.  I never used to care on way or the other but now I have figured it out.  These people are donating money to people who would make me their slave if they could.  Sooooo, no thanks.

Doctor Ron Paul

Being the helpful Klown that I am, I edited the excerpt below as if the media had written it for one of their communist jackass buddies.  The edits appear in bold maroon color.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Republican presidential candidate Doctor Ron Paul warned the U.S. is "slipping into a fascist system" dominated by government and businesses as he held a fiery rally Saturday night upstaging established Republican Party banquets a short distance away.

The Texas congressman, and Air Force veteran, drew a couple thousand standing and chanting people to Kansas City's Union Station as the party's establishment dined on steak across the street at the Missouri GOP's annual conference. Kansas Republicans were holding a similar convention in a suburb across the state line.

Doctor Paul staged his rally near the nation's World War I museum, asserting that the U.S. got off track about 100 years ago during the era of President Woodrow Wilson, who led the nation through World War I and unsuccessfully advocated for the nation's involvement in a forerunner of the United Nations.

"We've slipped away from a true Republic," Doctor Paul said. "Now we're slipping into a fascist system where it's a combination of government and big business and authoritarian rule and the suppression of the individual rights of each and every American citizen." More here:

I find it absolutely hysterical that there is one candidate who supports freedom and he is completely dismissed.  However, to be fair, I don't really think he is particularly good at communicating his message of freedom.  I guess you just have to "know."  If you really get to the bottom of Ron Paul, you will find his main message to be simple ... he wants the government to leave peaceful people alone.

Yes, he's more of an "Articles of Confederation" guy than a "Constitution" guy but never the less, he stands for freedom.  He actually supports FREEDOM for the individual ... and to return the government to being a servant of the people instead of the other way around.

Did you know that Ron Paul is the only veteran in the race?   Oh, sorry,  I meant to say "Dr" Ron Paul.  You know how the media loves to throw the word "doctor" in front of every moron they want you to respect.  Does the name "Dr Maya Angelou" ring a bell?  Try to find her name in the media without the "doctor" in front.

Meanwhile, according to the media, Dr Ron Paul is just "Ron Paul."  Yes, AND, he's an actual doctor, not some "Underwater Basket Weaving" major. Gee, I wonder why it is the media isn't constantly reminding you he's a doctor/veteran. 

What's that, you weren't aware he is a veteran?  Well, I don't know why not ... with the media talking about it every day on TV and ramming it down your throat.

As far as I'm concerned, being a veteran should be one of the constitutional requirements for being President.  But that's just the tyrant in me, wanting to thrust/force my genius juice into the loins of your freedom ... feels great, just relax and enjoy it. 

It seems to me the other candidates are just Obama-light.  I don't hear them talking about reforming the income tax code, do you?  I don't hear them talking about opening up drilling, do you?  I don't hear them talking about slashing government regulations on businesses.  I don't hear them talking about reforming our justice system (tort reform)  so that lawyers aren't getting a cut of every financial transaction in the United States.

What do I hear them talking about?  I hear them talking about very crucial issues such as abortion and why you should be forced to conform to their religious beliefs regarding that issue.

Hey, let's go bother law abiding people


Animal rights group SHARK said a remote-controlled aircraft like this one was shot down near Ehrhardt. It planned to use the drone to video live pigeon shoots at the privately owned Broxton Bridge Plantation.

A remote-controlled aircraft owned by an animal rights group was reportedly shot down near Broxton Bridge Plantation Sunday near Ehrhardt, S.C.

Steve Hindi, president of SHARK (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness), said his group was preparing to launch its Mikrokopter drone to video what he called a live pigeon shoot on Sunday when law enforcement officers and an attorney claiming to represent the privately-owned plantation near Ehrhardt tried to stop the aircraft from flying.

"It didn't work; what SHARK was doing was perfectly legal," Hindi said in a news release. "Once they knew nothing was going to stop us, the shooting stopped and the cars lined up to leave."

He said the animal rights group decided to send the drone up anyway.

"Seconds after it hit the air, numerous shots rang out," Hindi said in the release. "As an act of revenge for us shutting down the pigeon slaughter, they had shot down our copter."

According to the report, Hindi told the responding deputy the group's remote-controlled aircraft "was hovering over U.S. 601 when he heard a shot come from the wood line. The shot sounded to him that it was of small caliber."

The incident report went on to state that "once shot, the helicopter lost lift and crash landed on the roadway of U.S. 601." More here:

Ha ha, jackasses.  Keep screwing around with law-abiding people.  I hope you do so because, unlike you idiot-libs, I can predict what will happen if you do ... one of you will get hurt in a horrible (unpredictable to you) accident.  If only I could capture the look of shock on your face when it finally happens.

By the way, what kind of job do you have where you can just take off at will and go get your helicopter to video whenever people are going to kill pigeons?  Yes, and what kind of job do you have that pays enough to afford a helicopter and the time it takes to practice flying it?  Hmmmm?

Let me guess, Birkenstock boy, this IS your "job."  Hey, it impresses the chicks that don't shave their legs, right?  Hee haw -- hee haw.

2nd Amendment



Hey, we're not shoving this down your throat, stop whining


RALEIGH, N.C. — It was a tale of government meddling that outraged radio talk show hosts and a pair of Congress members: A 4-year-old was forced to dump her packed lunch and eat a state-dictated cafeteria lunch of chicken nuggets. Now school officials are blaming a teacher’s error in making sure the child had a nutritious meal.

Yes ... this was just an "error."  They've fixed it and they want you to look the other way now.

Conservatives who see it as yet another example of government overreach leaped on the story, and it reached a pair of North Carolina’s U.S. representatives, Republican Renee Ellmers and Democrat Larry Kissel. They wrote a letter asking U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack to investigate.

“The content of a school lunch provided to a child by their parents should be governed only by the child’s parents, not another government bureaucrat,” they wrote in the letter.
The cafeteria details are true, but rather than an example of government “lunch bag police” overruling a family, it’s an embarrassing lapse by a teacher, Hoke County Schools Assistant Superintendent Bob Barnes said Thursday.

Right, it wasn't the government lunch police requiring anything at all ... again, just a mistake by a teacher so everyone please relax your buttocks, ok?  There, that's better.

The girl’s teacher should have handed the child a carton of milk to round out the turkey-and-cheese sandwich and banana she brought from home. Instead, the teacher erred by telling the tyke to get a cafeteria lunch, Barnes said.

Exactly.  See?  The mistake wasn't that the teacher/government got involved, the mistake was the teacher replaced the wrong food.   

The government made the child go thru the cafeteria line when she should only have been given some milk. (Given?  And who pays for the free milk? And does this happen every day?)

“We do not go over and stare down every child’s lunch,” Barnes said. 

You don't?  On the contrary, I think you do.  And I think you have zero business doing so.  I know you think you do ... all libs think that way.  It doesn't matter what the parent thinks, it only matters what the lib thinks.  And why?  Because the lib has "science" to back him up ... and NOBODY can disagree with their science.

Ever notice?  Libs ALWAYS use some type of excuse to snatch your freedom and money.  And it's ALWAYS for your own good.

“If you looked at the lunch the child had, I’d love to have that lunch today. However, there are occasions that kids bring lunches that aren’t that complete, and that’s why we try to supplement them with the things that they need to make it a complete lunch.”

Hey, nobody asked you, jackasses.  If the parents ask then go right ahead, but they aren't asking, are they?  No.  But nothing stops a jackass lib when they've got a good head of steam.

USDA does not “regulate sack lunches or any other food children bring from home to eat at school. That is a responsibility for parents, not the federal government,” Rowe said.

Right, they don't regulate sack lunches, except for the fact that they are regulating sack lunches.  Never mind the facts, just read our lips.

Barnes said the school is apologizing to the child’s parents for startling the girl and sending her through a cafeteria line she was unaccustomed to.

“I am so sorry this happened to this little girl,” Barnes said. “On that day, the policy wasn’t followed, and hey, we’re the grown folks here. That’s our fault. The teacher never should have sent that little girl into that line. She should have gone over and picked up the missing item and brought it to her.”

Again, they WILL NOT admit to regulating lunches yet they repeat over and over that they should have regulated it differently.  I'm guessing they do this with a straight face too ... totally serious.

The mistake isn’t a sign teachers are delving into diet details where they don’t belong, Barnes said.

It isn't?  I disagree.  I think that's EXACTLY the problem here, nitwit.

“We’re not trying to force government down anybody’s throat. All we’re trying to do is make sure that our children get a good education and a nutritious meal every day,” Barnes said. “It comes back to: We had an employee who made a mistake.” More here:

No, no, we're not trying to force it down your throat at all.  We wish you would swallow it happily and willingly.  And if you don't, we'll push it down ... very gently ... but it's going down.  Not by force though.

The Tea Party is not tax exempt ... but "Media Matters" is


The Richmond Tea Party group is blasting the IRS for allegedly failing to grant tax exempt status to the pro-limited government organization. “The Internal Revenue Service has served Richmond Tea Party (RTP) with unreasonable requests to obtain a tax-exempt status, fitting the pattern of the Federal Government’s forcing liberty groups to spend inordinate time and money complying with their demands during this critical 2012 election year,” RTP claims in a press release. More here:

Right.  It's clear that Media Matters is a liberal tax exempt organization but The Tea Party is not.  Makes plenty of sense to you, right?  Gotta love the government.  More and more "in your face and what are you going to do about it?"

Hey ... big brother ... here's a message for you.

Al Gore comes out of closet, finally (no, not that way ... yet)


LONDON, Feb 16 (Reuters) - Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore wants to end the default practice of quarterly earnings guidance and explore issuing loyalty-driven securities as part of an overhaul of capitalism which he says has turned many of the world's largest economies into hotbeds of irresponsible short-term investment.

"An overhaul of capitalism" ... I see.

Together with David Blood, senior partner of 'green' fund firm Generation Investment Management, the environmental activist has crafted a blueprint for "sustainable capitalism" he wants the financial industry to adopt to support lasting economic growth.

Senior partner in a 'green" fund firm ... I see ... and what tells me this jackass is going to use the government to force you to make him even richer than he is.  Was he the former CEO of Goldman Sachs Asset Managment ... you know, the company that really cares about the poor?

"While we believe that capitalism is fundamentally superior to any other system for organising economic activity, it is also clear that some of the ways in which it is now practised do not incorporate sufficient regard for its impact on people, society and the planet," Gore said.

Yes, capitalism is fundamentally superior to other forms of economics but just let us geniuses tweak it a bit.  Instead of the market dictating supply and demand, WE (the geniuses) will do it  instead.

"While governments and civil society will need to be part of the solution to these challenges, ultimately it will be companies and investors that will mobilise the capital needed to overcome them." More here:

And there we go ... the standard issue lib bullshit, "the government MUST be involved."  Because an idiot lib can never have a good idea and then go do it on his own ... and if others want to be a part of it then they can invest their money if they like .... nooooo, this is not the way of the high and mighty genius idiot lib.

The way of the idiot lib is that he must ALWAYS force you to do his bidding and/or give him money.  This way he, in turn, can "do good" with it.  After all, you're just misusing your money, you moron.  This whole thing is for your own good, don't you see?

Again, as usual, what's the bottom line with the great geniuses idiot libs?  They MUST always be telling YOU what to do.  They are incapable of making an impact unless YOU do their bidding.  And this you will find to be true with ALL lib concepts.

Can you see them trying this in America? Ha ha, I reckon not.


Indonesia's state railway, Kereta Api Indonesia, has begun stringing concrete balls over rail lines to prevent people from hitching free rides on top of its trains, according to local news reports.

The devices are called Goal Bola-bola , or goal balls, as they resemble soccer goals with the grapefruit-sized concrete balls strung from chains, according to a report in the Jakarta Post.

The railway said it resorted to using the concrete balls after previous anti-roof-rider efforts  including greasing the roofs, spraying roof riders with colored water, and detentions and fines  didn't stop the practice.

But a human rights group says the balls expose violators to a punishment as severe as death for a minor infraction.


“Picture this: If a student has to take the train, he or she would face the threat of being killed by the concrete balls. Now his right to get to school safely is simply violated,” Yosep Adi Prasetyo, a spokesman for the National Commission on Human Rights, told the Jakarta Globe.  More with video here:

Yes, did you catch that?  "His RIGHT to get to school safely" ... and I suppose it involves a free ride (someone else pays .. but not him) on the top of the train.  It's a RIGHT!!

Best Meatloaf EVER!

REPOST:  I'm having this for dinner tonight as it's now something I have on a regular basis.  I decided to post it again in case you missed it the first time (back in April of 2010.)  This is good stuff.
-----------------------

My honey was watching the "Today show" (lib central) and watched them make this meatloaf. They called it "Mexican meatloaf." I'm not a big fan of meatloaf but I'm a HUGE fan of Mexican food. Apricot jam in the sauce ... DON'T LEAVE IT OUT. She made it last night and it was DEE-LISH. Sweet and hot at the same time. Make some yourself ... don't let the libs have all the fun.


Mexican meatloaf - Spice up a classic!

Sam Zien’s fast and flavorful recipe is great for leftovers – turn them into tacos.

   Makes one big 2-pound loaf - The work involved here is nothing more than a little mixing.
INGREDIENTS
Loaf
2 pounds ground beef
3⁄4 cup bread crumbs (Japanese panko crumbs work really well)
One 1-ounce packet store-bought fajita seasoning
4 ounces canned diced green chiles
2 large eggs, beaten
Glaze
1 cup ketchup
1⁄4 cup apricot jam
2 teaspoons chopped canned chipotle peppers

DIRECTIONS
Preheat the oven to 350° F.Grease a loaf pan or baking sheet.
Mix all meatloaf ingredients together and put into a greased loaf pan, or you can lightly grease a baking sheet and form the thing into an even loaf. It’s all good. Mix the glaze ingredients together in a small bowl and spread about half of the glaze over the meatloaf.

Bake the meatloaf for about 1 1⁄2 hours. Allow to cool slightly, slice into 1-inch-thick pieces, and glaze with the extra sauce before serving.

TIPS

Note: Just because it’s called a loaf, doesn’t mean you need a loaf pan — I never use one
