All three branches of government are now against the people


President Obama and his successors in the Oval Office are not obligated to make public the names of individuals visiting the White House, according to a decision of the federal Circuit Court for the District of Columbia made public Friday.

The case was brought by Judicial Watch, the government watchdog nonprofit that has been fighting a long legal battle seeking to force release of the White House visitor logs as public records under the Freedom of Information Act.

But in a decision that is drawing intense criticism from across the ideological spectrum, the circuit court said the president has a "constitutional perogative" not to tell the American people who he or his staff meets with in the White House. More here:

Ha ha.  The fair and objective court ... comes up with a "justification" for keeping the White House visitors log a secret from the people.  When is the last time a court took the side of the people instead of the side of the government?

The courts are there to protect the people from outrageous government over-reaching.  But what are they doing?  They are handing your money and liberty to the government.  And there's nothing you can do about it.

Dunkin Donuts is racist - but (Libs) Hoda and Kathie Lee are not


Human Rights Watch said it was shocked to see an American brand name running an advertising campaign that would draw "howls of outrage" if released in the United States.

"It's both bizarre and racist that Dunkin' Donuts thinks that it must color a woman's skin black and accentuate her lips with bright pink lipstick to sell a chocolate doughnut," said Phil Robertson, the deputy Asia director for Human Rights Watch. "Dunkin' Donuts should immediately withdraw this ad, publicly apologize to those it's offended and ensure this never happens again." More of the idiocy here:

Yes, the consistent cry of the constantly offended idiot-liberal  "... ensure it never happens again."

And what does this group have to say about Hoda and Kathie Lee this morning (08/30/13) on the Today Show? 


Answer: Not a GD thing.

Are any libs at all "offended" by this?  Answer: No.

Revolutions, because throughout history, dumbasses insist on bossing others around


The initial firestorm surrounding the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of conservative groups may have subsided, but tea party leaders say the situation has only become worse and may lead to more lawsuits against the embattled agency.

Huh?  You mean the tyrants refuse to stop with the tyranning?  Well now, this must be the first time it's ever happened.  

That's weird because history teaches us that usually tyrants come to realize they are stealing the freedom of others and so they curtail their freedom-stealing activity, thereby saving lots of blood and treasure.

The IRS also is asking for detailed financial records, including “the amounts and percentages of your total expenses that were for fundraising activities in the tax year 2011, 2012 and 2013.”

The Aug. 20 request came as a shock to Tea Party Patriots, which said it already has provided to the IRS extensive information on all of its activities and thinks it is long past time to receive a “yes” or “no” answer

“This is tantamount to an audit. This is the continuation of the same thing they’ve been doing for four years. They have not stopped,” she said Thursday. “

We are now looking at potential legal remedies, but that’s not easy. Congress has made it quite difficult to sue the IRS.” More here:

Wait, what's this? It's difficult to sue the federal government? Sure it is, unless it's a liberal group suing the government. Did you know that the "government" often WANTS to get sued so it can squander your money the way it wants to? That's right, often times the government will give all the necessary information to certain groups so they can easily sue and free up the government to do as it pleases. And then it pays the "opposing" attorneys handsomely.

But not in this case, my friends. Congress makes it very easy for lawyers to sue corporations, but then they exempt themselves and their agencies from the same laws. Isn't that interesting? 

Many years ago when I was in school, I was studying labor laws ... and I learned at that time that congress had exempted themselves from most of the labor laws. I was flabbergasted. "They can DO that?" Turns out, they can ... and do ... ALL the time. In fairness, I heard they no longer actually exempt themselves from that particular law but they get around it in some other way.

And while I'm on this, I accidentally caught a part of the Today Show the other day and they were talking about "interns." My perception was that interns (on the Today Show) did not get paid. And that applies to the White House as well. 

What do you think?  You think you can do that in your business?  What about McDonalds?  Or did the shitstains government "somehow" accidentally exempt themselves (and certain favorable businesses) from laws that apply to you?

And I might as well mention this: Do you think you or your child has an equal chance at putting one of these "internships" on a resume?  Or do you think the internships are handed out to their friends and donors?

Federal government pretends to expand your personal liberty


The Obama administration said Thursday that it would not challenge laws legalizing marijuana in Colorado and Washington state as long as those states maintain strict rules involving the sale and distribution of the drug.

Right, in other words, you can pretend that your state is soveriegn ... as long as your state does as it's told by the federal government.  They're just so damn magnanimous, aren't they? So it's just like state's had rights, but different ... see?  No doubt this is just as the founders envisioned.

In a memo to U.S. attorneys in all 50 states, Deputy Attorney General James M. Cole said the Justice Department is “committed to using its limited investigative and prosecutorial resources to address the most significant threats in the most effective, consistent and rational way.” He stressed that marijuana remains illegal under federal law. 

And why would he stress this?  So he can keep the hammer over the heads of the states?  Think of it as the sword of Dumoclese.

The memo, which was welcomed by proponents of marijuana legalization, directs federal prosecutors to focus on eight areas of enforcement rather than spending time targeting individual users. Those aims include preventing distribution of marijuana to minors, stopping the growing of marijuana on public land, keeping pot from falling into the hands of cartels and gangs, and preventing the diversion of marijuana to states where it remains illegal. More here:

Wow, so they're just going to keep doing everything they're already doing and then loudly proclaim they're granting us some extra liberty ... yeah, I reckon not.

I wonder how much money they (federal govnt) squander "enforcing" these crucial federal laws.  Never mind.  I don't wonder anymore, I just looked it up ... more than 10 billion curp so far this year.  Oh well, no reason for concern.  They have plenty of money, right?

And for the record, the Klown does not smoke-a the marijuana. Tried it, didn't like it ... probably because its value is only appreciated by the smart & cool peeps.

Chris Matthews



Grabbed it off IMAO here:

It's a big deal ... please believe us ... everyone cares ... REALLY!



So here's the headline:

National fast-food wage protests kick off in New York

Yes ... did you get that? It's "National" in scope. Except, it isn't national, it's at a relative few spots ... but since when do facts matter to "jourrrnalists?" 

The protesters plan to spread out to other stores throughout New York during the day. Protests are also expected in Los Angeles, Chicago, Charlotte, N.C., and other cities. More here:

Sure they do ... they do a lot of "planning" ... all six of them. And all their planning involves someone else's wallet ... ever notice?

I ask myself ... why does the media think this is so important ... so newsworthy. It's ridiculous. Every jourrrrnalist over 15 years old knows the entire circus protest is being put on/organized/funded by the labor unions.  

It's almost as if the media is trying to help the labor unions and democratics and they think you're so stupid you'll believe anything they tell you ... nah, that can't be it.

Meanwhile, did this strike affect you?  Do you care in the slightest?

I mean, they can go to hell for all I care, I never eat fast food anymore ... you know ... since the media informed me that I can't be cool if I do.  And lord knows, I yearn to be accepted by the libs smart and cool people.

I'm tired of all this racsim, aren't you?

So some geniuses liberals think it's an awesome idea to tell Walmart how to run its business ... for the good of "the people" of course.  So they had a "rally."

In this case, it's Washington DC ... which is like California with larcenous gangsters politicians in place of stinky hippies.  Anyway, turns out there are certain peeps who think they're entitled to Walmart's money and they're trying to pass a bill to take some.  Yes, they're "treating themselves."


But I got off track there.  My original reason for this post was to bitch about being called "cracker."  THAT'S right, it has become tiresome.  All this racism man ... brutal.  Nah, just kidding.  You see, I know there are racists in the world ... there always have been and there always will be.  Some people are VERY slow learners.

Watch out now cuz I'm going to go WAYYY out on a limb with some genius-level pontification. "You cannot legislate morality."

I also know that if the government would get out of the way, the natural progression would happen faster ... and the natural progression of people acting in their own best interests is sure to push racism by the wayside.

I ask you ... how is hating on people for lame-assed reasons in your own self interests.  When people figure this out on their own, after long periods of financial penalties learning, they tend to pass this knowledge on to their friends and children ... yes, without any help whatsoever from the media or government.

So, back to the rally against Walmart ... anyone remember Paula Deen what happens to white folks when the media points and hollers "witch" racist at them?  Well, what do you suppose will happen to this "reverend" who was at the rally? Hint: He's black.

Reverend Graylan Hagler asked the mayor why he was letting a "little bitty cracker corporation from Arkansas" push the District around. More here:

Ha, "reverend" ... piece of crap "Man of Jesus."

The media ... with all the facts you need to know


In the news recently was this beating video  This was a video taken by a school bus camera ... where three black boys jumped on a white boy and "pummeled him unmerciful."  The media outcry for justice was loud and constant non-existent.

And soon it was forgotten since there was no way any racism was involved and all the sheep went back to chewing their cuds ... while looking for signs of witches racism elsewhere.

This morning there was a lady/anchor on TV and she said the reason for the beating turned out to be "the white boy refused to buy drugs from the black boys."

Well then, that sounds logical to me, doesn't it you?  So now we know ... those black boys were trying to force that white kid to buy drugs ... tsk tsk ... sounds JUST LIKE black boys, doesn't it?  Oh yes.  Anyway, *dusting off hands* that settles that, on to the next ridiculous idiot bait news story.

So what came out of the TV was "...refused to buy drugs ...," my brain translated it to "refused to pay for the drugs."  Funny, huh? 

And while I'm at it, let me mention that I heard the words "white boy" a hundred times and the word(s) black boy(s) zero times.  More humor.

Martin Luther King event was open to all ... totally non-partisan


Sen. Tim Scott, R.-S.C., the only African American serving in the United States Senate, wasn't invited to the event commemorating the 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King's march on Washington, though a host of Democratic luminaries spoke on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. More here:

Too funny.  They exclude the only black senator in America ... because he's a republican. 

But they want you to think and believe that this "honoring" of MLK was for anyone ... oh yes, EVERYONE honors MLK, right?  All people are invited ... unless you disagree with them politically.

Wow, I'll bet the media is going to go apeshit about this, don't you?  Prepare for "non-stop" coverage.  And by non-stop, I mean they won't stop to address the issue.

The lefties, man ... what a bunch of POS'.

When liberals vote on your freedom / money


Hey look ... a government found something new to tax - YAY!!


A California bill that could strip tax-exempt status from Little League, the Boy Scouts of America and other “discriminatory” nonprofit youth-serving groups could come up for a final vote this week. 

The first-of-its-kind bill, SB 323, passed the California Senate and sailed through Assembly committees to a floor vote, possibly this week. More here:

LMAO -- yes ... leave nothing untaxed ... constantly be on the lookout for new reasons to shear the sheep so you can give it to your friends and donors.

And it's funny because, the government used to tax very little.

And it's funny because, they had to amend the constitution to pass the income tax law.  That's right, it seems those ignorant framers of the constitution forgot to include an income tax.

And it's funny because, the income tax started out as 1% or 2% of incomes ... but only the rich had to pay (if you stupidly assume the rich didn't raise prices on the poor to pay for the income tax.)

And it's funny because, the income tax keeps going up and up and up ... and the government keeps finding new things to tax and tax and tax.

And it's funny because, the government keep breaking records in how much "revenue" it takes in and yet it's running a trillion dollar yearly deficit.

And it's funny because, when they run a deficit (borrow money,) it's the same as raising your taxes ... because you HAVE to pay the bill even though you told them not to spend that much.

And it's funny because, no matter how much they get or spend, it's never enough.

And it's funny, because, without your money, where would they be?

Keep voting for idiot "Democratics."

No word yet from the shorn sheep


ObamaCare has become big business for an elite network of Washington lobbyists and consultants who helped shape the law from the inside.

More than 30 former administration officials, lawmakers and congressional staffers who worked on the healthcare law have set up shop on K Street since 2010.

Ha ha ha.  Oh lord.   Who could EVER foreseen this?

“After passage of major legislation, those who have networks on Capitol Hill take exceedingly lucrative jobs with the same industries subject to the legislation,” said Craig Holman, a lobbyist for Public Citizen. “It raises questions about the [bill's] integrity.” More here:

Yes ... it "raises questions about the bill's integrity."  

Sort of like a robber sticking a gun in your face "raises questions" about his integrity.

FREEDOM - YAY ... Oops, nope ... turns out you'll do as the government tells you


The New Mexico Supreme Court ruled on Thursday that, by refusing to photograph a gay wedding, a photography studio violated the New Mexico Human Rights Act (NMHRA). 

The court found that Elane Photography’s refusal to serve Vanessa Willock violated the act, which “prohibits a public accommodation from refusing to offer its services to a person based on that person’s sexual orientation,” according to the ruling. More here:

So a private business says "no thanks" to conducting business with someone (for whatever reason) and the government says "nope, you'll do as we tell you."  Is that ok with you?  Does that sound like freedom or tyranny?

On the other hand, I don't feel like I'm getting the whole story here.   As seems more and more prevalent, there is an obvious fact being left out ... an elephant-in-the-room, so to speak.  And what ... we're all just supposed to ignore it and go ahead and discuss the story anyway?

I mean, I doubt the gay couple would want a hostile company taking pics of their wedding.  The product is too subjective.  Blurry pics ... poor framing ... etc etc etc.  Seems to me that nobody in their right mind would want to take a chance on that ... nor would they want someone who hates them actually taking pics at their wedding.

Oh well, I guess this just didn't occur to the genius jourrrrnalist.

Also, I love how the government people think they can fix hate with a supreme court ruling.

Fast food is bad ... Rich and evil are the same thing


(MoneyWatch) A coalition of labor, religious and other groups are calling for a nationwide strike of fast-food employees on August 29. 

I love how the media uses the phrase "____ calling for ____."   It's very similar to "some say."  It might be one person but the media report it as if there were throngs "saying/calling for."  You'll never know the difference ... Baaaa Bleat.

Also, notice the phrasing "coalition of  labor, religious and other groups."  They make it sound like these "groups" are varied and all coming together for this one great cause which we ALL should support.  Meanwhile, it's more like a "coalition" of sharks and piranha.  So nice of CBS to keep us informed of this major happening in all of our lives while lecturing us against the evils of fast food and the rich.

The campaign, building on a flurry of one-day work stoppages this year at franchises around the U.S., highlights the efforts by unions to enlist workers in the cause and heighten the impact of the strikes. Labor supporters say that fast-food workers are poorly paid and that their low wages subsidize the profits of multinational corporations. 

Did you hear about these?  Well, they happened.  My recall of it was about two people walked off the job at a few restaurants ... but again, the forthright, fair and objective media reported it as if it were shaking the nation and we should all be concerned.  And it sort of cracks me up, because on the one hand they look down their noses and tsk-tsk about you eating a Big Mac, and in the next breath they're threatening stikes and you should pay attention because "oh oh, might not get your Big Mac."  Sheesh.

The call for a strike came this week from a public relations agency that counts both the Service Employees International Union and United Food & Commercial Workers as clients. Both labor groups are among dozens of local and national religious, political, and union groups supporting the call for strikes. 

Again with "the call?" Enough already.  I hear there's a Klown calling for the disolution and bankruptcy of corrupt media outlets yet nothing is getting reported.  Must be a glitch somewhere.

But back to the subject ... notice the "jourrrrnalist" once again alluding to the various and disparate "groups" which really only amount to big labor asshats who are interested in getting dues-paying members.

By contrast, pro-business organizations like the Employment Policies Institute -- a PR front group created by conservative advocate Richard Berman -- rightly point out that many fast-food operations are operated by independent franchise owners who operate under tight profit margins.

Wow, the jourrrrnalist actually gave the other point of view a paragraph ... if you bothered to wade through his communist diatribe.  Anyway, never mind the facts ... we're CALLING FOR JUSTICE!

Seriously though ... what's Detroit this? Unions putting Detroit companies out of business? That's just a bunch of Detroit propaganda from the bourgeoisie to keep the proletariat down.

Gentle heroic communist suspected to be greedy capitalist after all


WASHINGTON — Bill Clinton’s foundation has spent more than $50 million on travel expenses since 2003, an analysis of the nonprofit’s tax forms reveal. More here:

So the New York Times finally discovers that "non-profits" are just legal entities which have been set up by rich people to hide some of their income and freely distribute it to their buddies.

And yet the NYT has spent decades brainwashing helping the American sheep understand that non-profits are good ... you know ... since they aren't greedy capitalist pigs. The media, always helping the government fleece us.

Turns out crystal meth is not addictive after all


“Almost every adult in that area (of North Korea) has experienced using ice and not just once,” says Kim Seok-hyang, who co-authored the study. “I estimate that at least 40% to 50% are seriously addicted to the drug.”

How North Koreans kick their meth habit is unclear. Prof. Kim, a former Unification Ministry official who now lectures at Ewha Womans University, says some of the refugees she interviewed for the study deny that ice is addictive at all.

“They say you can stop it whenever you want. All you need to do is sleep all day long, for three or four days,” she says. More here:

Ok, you got that?  Just call your boss and tell him you accidentally got hooked on crystal meth and you need a week or so to kick the habit.  Tell him you'll be in next week fresh as a daisy, he'll understand.

It seems to me there are peeps who will believe anything they're told. They go around getting (accidentally) hooked on crystal meth and the like.  You know what else they do?  They go into a voting booth and vote on your liberty.  But don't worry, they're very well informed.

The newest thing in comfort wipes

 

Shittens are hand-shaped disposable moist wipes designed to prevent anything, uh, unsavory from getting on your hands when you wipe. From here:

You can buy your Shittens here for $9.95 plus shipping.  Some of you peeps who go to fancy-pants functions should get some and put them on the back of the toilet at one of them ... and then step back and take video of the post discovery mayhem discussion.  

Don't forget to email the video to us for posting and perusal by all of America.  Because viewing video of rich people getting all indignant always makes us poor peeps feel superior.

Two incompetent boobs




McCain, along with Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, traveled to Egypt earlier this month at the request of President Barack Obama to implore military leaders to begin holding elections and transition into a democracy.

(CNN) – It’s high time for the United States to cut off its $1.3 billion in aid to Egypt as the military regime cracks down violently on protesters, Sen. John McCain argued Sunday. 

The Arizona Republican added the U.S. has lost its credibility in the region after failing to follow its own law that requires suspending aid to states overtaken by a military coup–though the U.S. has not officially described the recent regime change in Egypt as a coup.

"We have no credibility. We do have influence, but when you don't use that influence, then you do not have that influence,” McCain said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” More here:

Hmmmm.  He's worried about "having no credibility/influence" in the Arab world.  That's a huge problem and mystery, right John?

I have an idea.  Why don't you start worrying about your "credibility" right here in the US?  Start by leaving us the hell alone and then follow up by leaving Egypt the hell alone.  In fact, why don't we all just have a big "leave peeps the hell alone" party.

You want some credibility?  Start expanding personal freedom instead of turning us all into slaves to support the implementation of your idiotic ideas and causes.

GOP detects possible bias in the media


The media says "If you're a Fox News viewer then you're an uninformed idiot."

The Republican National Committee (RNC) voted unanimously Friday to pull the group’s partnership with NBC and CNN for the 2016 GOP presidential primary debates unless the networks kill their planned films on Hillary Clinton.

Wait, what's this?  The major networks are going to promote Hillary Clinton and disparage conservatives? Whaaaa??????  Why ... this is a game changer ... a real wake up call.  How long has THIS been going on?

“We don't have time for the media's games,” RNC Chairman Reince Priebus said before the vote at the RNC summer meeting in Boston. “We’re done putting up with this nonsense. There are plenty of other news outlets.” 

 That's right, folks ... they're "done putting up with the nonsense."  I guess they figure 100 years or so of increasing bias in favor of the freedom-stealing communists statists is "enough."  Good for them for drawing the line like that.

According to the resolution, called “In support of media objectivity and accountability” and obtained by The Hill, the RNC called the planned films “political favoritism” and accused NBC and CNN of airing “programming that amounts to little more than extended commercials promoting former Secretary Clinton.”More here:

This just cracks me up ... all of a sudden, they object.

The good news?  If the major networks pull their "Hillary" films, then GOP will let them back in ... having taught them a very important lesson.  Yes.

And don't worry about the media just promoting Hillary in their usual way with slanted/biased coverage all throughout the election and beyond.

That's right folks, after she's elected, the media will reinforce your buying decision by telling you how smart you were to have voted for her.  And when the media tells you you're smart ... well ... they know what they're talking about ... those guys/gals are all geniuses.

The ironing man ... THE IRONING!



Police say an instructor of a gun-safety class in central Ohio accidentally shot a student during the weekend.

The Columbus Dispatch reports 73-year-old Terry J. Dunlap Sr. was demonstrating a hand gun on Saturday at a training facility when he fired a bullet that bounced off a desk and into the right arm of Michael Piemonte.

The 26-year-old student says the .38-caliber bullet hit him between his elbow and armpit. He says many of the students in the class were nurses who helped stabilize him before he was transported to a Columbus hospital.

Piemonte tells the newspaper it appears that Dunlap did not know that the gun was loaded. Dunlap did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

A police report lists the incident as an accidental shooting. From here:

Whatever happened to the school bus beating kids?


The endless coverage in the media is just brutal, no? Day in and day out the media is wondering what will happen to the kids who put the smackdown on a fellow rider.

Saw this pic on The Drudge Report


H/T The Drudge Report:

McCain is mystified and dumbfounded ... only this time there's a reason


A deep distrust of government has led young Americans to hold up NSA leaker Edward Snowden as a hero, Sen. John McCain said Sunday. 

“There’s a young generation who believes he’s some kind of Jason Bourne,” the Arizona Republican said during on “Fox News Sunday,” referring to the lead character in the Bourne movie trilogy who battled his own government, particularly the CIA. More here:

McCain: "Hey, since when did the people start using common sense instead of the propaganda we feed them through the media?"

Hey, McCain, you doofus ... have you noticed ... the only people who don't have "a deep distrust in government" are the idiot libs.  They NEED the government to force the rest of us to give up our liberty to do as they say ... for our own good, of course.

Think about it, without the government, the life of a lib is wasted ... they'd actually have to leave people alone.



 

Why must the government do the exact opposite of "the right thing" all the time?


SAN DIEGO - A loophole is allowing hundreds of immigrants across the Mexico border in to the United States. Immigrants are being taught to use "key words and phrases" to be allowed to enter and stay in the country.

Just this past Monday, Border Patrol agents say about 200 people came through the Otay Crossing claiming a quote: "credible fear" of the drug cartels. So many were doing this that they had to close down the processing center and move the overflow by vans to another station. 

"They are being told if they come across the border, when they come up to the border and they say certain words, they will be allowed into the country," said a person who did not want to be identified on camera. "We are being overwhelmed." More here:

And with more people competing for your job, do you think you get higher wages or lower?

With more people soaking the government for welfare and medical care, do you think your taxes will go up or down?  Do you think your health care costs will go up or down?  Why is the government interested in encouraging illegal immigration.  What a mystery, right?

Nancy Pelosi shows her character, standards, and integrity ... again


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., demanded Friday that Republicans take down a “Slap Hillary” site that features a flash game where players can slap the former Secretary of State, Twitchy reported. 

“‘Slap Hillary’ site isn’t a game, it isn’t funny. Like all violence against women, it’s sick. GOP needs to grow up and take this site down,” she tweeted Friday. 

There’s only one problem. The GOP has nothing to do with the page or the game. More here:

Ahhhhh.  It makes me feel so good to know that Nancy Pelosi is standing up for women.  You know ... unless the women are conservative.  

Funny thing though, there was a Slap-Palin site long ago but did Pelosi stand up for violence against women then?  Answer: No.


And there's a reason why Pelosi does this, can you guess what it is?  Yes, it's because she's a hypocritical piece of shi' who has zero concern about "violence against women" unless it can buy her votes or make conservatives (her enemies) look bad.

H/T Wombat ... who only had one question ... "Where is the Slap-Pelosi" site?

Any thoughts on this?


WAXAHACHIE (CBS 11 NEWS) - An Ellis County coach has been convicted of criminal charges for hitting one of his young players repeatedly with baseballs.

Prosecutors say Ron Santos, 26, threw as many as 15 pitches at the teenager ranging in speed from 60-80 miles per hour.  The hits left the 15-year-old covered in bruises.  Santos called it “training” to teach the players how to take a pitch.

However, a jury convicted Santos of a Class A misdemeanor, Assault with Bodily Injury and sentenced him to 15 days of jail, a $500 fine and 18 months of community supervision.

15 days in jail ... hmmmm.  What is "community supervision?" Bold is mine on the next line.

Nan Udell prosecuted Santos and says the case is not about whether he is a good coach, but about what he did that night.

I love it when someone tells me what "it's not about" and then very helpfully comes right behind that with what "it's about."  I NEVER get tired of it.

“It would be like teaching kids to step into the street to get hit by a car.  Just stand there and say ‘I’m gonna hit you with a car, turn the right way, because if you got hit by a really fast car, it could kill you.’”

Yes, I see your point ... because a baseball is just like a really fast white car with stiching.

Santos would not comment on the case.  He still serves as a coach for Waxahachie’s “Gear Up Baseball Academy,” with parent and player support.  He is not allowed to pitch to any players for a year and must produce a video on the dangers of being hit by a pitch. More here:

So he has parent and player support ... but never mind that, these other people know better.   My guess is his players aren't ball shy.

In the natural world, idiots are not a problem

Idiots become a problem when man gets involved and starts forming "governments."

Our founding fathers were aware of this but they were kind enough to never say it out loud.  They tried to make a government that was limited in power and scope.  They even went so far as to "enumerate" its powers in the constitution ... you know ... just in case the usual "thing" happened ... where the government claimed more and more power for itself ... until your every move was controlled by the government ... for your own health and safety of course.

Yes, and it turns out that every single thing you do is unsafe and unhealthy ... how about that.

I heard Rush the other day and he was saying something about how they try to convince you that everything you know to be true is untrue ... and everything you know to be untrue is true.

And I think that oftentimes they do this by redefining words and then making some outrageous claim based on their new "definition."

Example: "There's X number of sex offenders near your house."  Meanwhile, they'll classify you as a sex offender if you pee on someone's lawn or moon someone.

Of course, they don't bother to tell you about the change in definition ... that would just confuse you ... now be a good sheep lib and go bleat this new "fact" to everyone you know.

In conclusion, idiots are only a problem when they are allowed to vote on my liberty.  Think about it.  If they couldn't vote to take your liberty or property then how on earth could they be a problem to you? 

In addition, they cannot shove you around without taking your money first ... because they have to have the "police" before they can use force on you.   To me that means the lower the tax rate, the less of your freedom they can steal.  So the bottom line is, your money/property is your freedom.

All their lives they argue with you and try to justify the taking of your liberty ... they LIVE for it. And you are forced to use your time to argue back and tell them to leave you alone ... constantly being vigilant ... for your ENTIRE LIFE.

If only they weren't allowed to vote on your liberty.  Imagine how much more productive you would be if you didn't have to manage morons all the time. Maybe we'll get a short reprieve after the next revolution.
