Agenda 21, bit by little bit

What do the Statue of Liberty, Independence Hall, and Monticello have in common? The average American with a smattering of historical knowledge might say that those historic sites are all symbolic of America’s unique heritage of freedom.
sheehan
Jefferson’s Monticello is controlled by the United Nations.
Monticello, of course, was the home of Thomas Jefferson, the author of the Declaration of Independence. That document (as well as the U.S. Constitution, later) was signed in Independence Hall. The Statue of Liberty memorializes the free nation under God that those founding documents created.
What about the Great Smoky Mountains, Yellowstone Park, and the Grand Canyon? Well, these priceless natural resources are all managed by the U.S. National Parks Service. They are among the most frequently visited natural recreation areas in America, where millions of American families vacation every year.
Would it surprise you to learn that every one of these unique American landmarks is also controlled by the United Nations? It’s amazing but true. Every one of the natural and historic treasures listed above – plus more than a dozen more in America – has been designated an official World Heritage Site by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which is headquartered in Paris, France.

I DONATED!!!!! Now you don't have to worry about releasing my name.

Saw this today over at the Arctic Patriot's today.

(CNN) -- George Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer accused of wrongly killing Trayvon Martin, will not immediately have to turn over donations made to his website, a Florida judge said Friday.
Zimmerman collected about $204,000 in donations through the website, but did not disclose the contributions during his bond hearing last week, according to his attorney, Mark O'Mara. Prosecutors had asked for a bond of $1 million, but Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. made it $150,000 after Zimmerman's family testified they did not have the resources necessary to meet the higher level.
Assistant State Attorney Bernie de la Rionda on Friday asked Lester to increase the bond in light of the donations. But the judge said he would delay ruling on the request, in part because he does not know if he has authority to say how the money can be used.
Lester and O'Mara both said they are concerned about releasing the names of donors to Zimmerman, who has faced threats since the case began making national headlines in March.
Zimmerman, 28, was released Monday on $150,000 bail, 10% of which was put up to secure his release while he awaits trial on a second-degree murder charge in Martin's February 26 death.
About $5,000 from the website contribution was used in making bond, O'Mara said. The rest came from a loan secured by a family home.
Although Zimmerman spent some of the contributions on living expenses, about $150,000 remains, O'Mara said Friday. O'Mara said he has put the money into a trust he controls until a final decision is made about its use.

Brainwashing works. Sometimes.

As many as 100 high school students walked out of a national journalism conference after an anti-bullying speaker began cursing, attacked the Bible and reportedly called those who refused to listen to his rant “pansy assed.”
The speaker was Dan Savage, founder of the “It Gets Better” project, an anti-bullying campaign that has reached more than 40 million viewers with contributors ranging from President Obama to Hollywood stars. Savage also writes a sex advice column called “Savage Love.”
Savage, and his husband, were also guests at the White House for President Obama’s 2011 LGBT Pride Month reception. He was also invited to a White House anti-bullying conference.

Russian troops on US soil

Russian airborne troops are set to train how to target terrorists in America as part of a joint anti-terror drill with the United States which will take place in Fort Carson, Colorado at the end of next month.
“Airborne troops from Russia and the United States would hold joint anti-terror drills in the U.S. state of Colorado between May 24 and 31,” reports the Xinhua news agency, citing Russian Defense Ministry Col. Alexander Kucherenko. The story was also reported by Russian news outlet RIA Novosti.
The exercises, which will mark the first time the respective country’s two airborne forces have held joint drills on U.S. territory, will revolve around the the “reconnaissance of imaginary terrorists’ camp and a raid,” and will also involve evacuations of the troops by helicopter.

Lost links and mid-air collisions



(PI)  Most of the public discussion surrounding the use of drones both internationally and domestically has focused on issues of privacy or civilian casualties. Due to the technical complexity of drone operations, there has been little media examination of the practical feasibility of widespread domestic drone deployment. In February, the FAA Reauthorization Act of 2012 was signed into law clearing the way for more than 30,000 domestic drones by 2020. The law requires the FAA to create procedures for commercially-operated drones by 2015 and enables law enforcement agencies to operate small-scale drones at low altitudes. While this has a number of negative implications for the right to privacy, such as the lack of any laws governing the usage of data collected via drones, the thought of a future where U.S. skies are filled with an array of drones has a much larger, more practical problem: is it even logistically possible to operate thousands of pilot-less aircraft in the domestic airspace?

Lost Links
The first set of problems that will likely plague any attempt at the widespread use of drones inside the U.S. relate to frequency allocation and electromagnetic interference (EMI). In order to be controlled from a remote location, drones must communicate via with a ground control station via some sort of data link. In order for this link to be maintained, there must be protection against electromagnetic interference that can disrupt the communications link. If the interference is sufficient in scale, it can lead to what is called a lost link event causing the drone to lose contact with its operator. Sometimes the link is reestablished and the pilot is able to maintain control of the drone. Sometimes the link cannot be reestablished and the drone is effectively turned into a zombie that can drift far from its intended target, as may have occurred recently with the RQ-170 captured by Iran in December 2011.

A "gutsy call" all right - by Admiral McRaven

Today, Time magazine got hold of a memo written by then-CIA head Leon Panetta after he received orders from Barack Obama’s team to greenlight the bin Laden mission. Here’s the text, which summarized the situation:



Received phone call from Tom Donilon who stated that the President made a decision with regard to AC1 [Abbottabad Compound 1]. The decision is to proceed with the assault.

The timing, operational decision making and control are in Admiral McRaven’s hands. The approval is provided on the risk profile presented to the President. Any additional risks are to be brought back to the President for his consideration. The direction is to go in and get bin Laden and if he is not there, to get out. Those instructions were conveyed to Admiral McRaven at approximately 10:45 am.


This, of course, was the famed “gutsy call.” Here’s what Tom Hanks narrated in Obama’s campaign film, “The Road We’ve Traveled”:


HANKS: Intelligence reports locating Osama Bin Laden were promising, but inconclusive, and there was internal debate as to what the President should do.


VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN: We sat down in the Situation Room, the entire national security apparatus was in that room, and the President turns to every principal in the room, every secretary, “What do you recommend I do?” And they say, “Well, forty-nine percent chance he’s there, fifty-one … it’s a close call, Mr. President.” As he walked out the room, it dawned on me, he’s all alone. This is his decision. If he was wrong, his Presidency was done. Over.


Only the memo doesn’t show a gutsy call. It doesn’t show a president willing to take the blame for a mission gone wrong. It shows a CYA maneuver by the White House.


The memo puts all control in the hands of Admiral McRaven – the “timing, operational decision making and control” are all up to McRaven. So the notion that Obama and his team were walking through every stage of the operation is incorrect. The hero here was McRaven, not Obama. And had the mission gone wrong, McRaven surely would have been thrown under the bus.

Bet she makes a run for the border

HOUSTON (CBS Houston) — Octomom has some company.
Mexican stations are reporting that a woman is set to give birth to nine babies next month. That’s right, nine.
Karla Vanessa Perez, who lives in Coahuila along the Mexico-Texas border, told Mexican television station Notimex that she is due to give birth to nonuplets May 20.
“It’s very early to think of names for the babies,” Perez told the station. “First I hope that everything goes well.”
Televisa reports that Perez underwent fertility treatment that lead to the pregnancy. She is currently being treated at a hospital in Saltillo. She is expected to have six boys and three girls.
In 2009, Nadya Suleman captured the nation’s attention after she gave birth to eight children – six boys and two girls.

OKMULGEE, Okla. (AP) - The Oklahoma Highway Patrol says a portable methamphetamine lab exploded in a man’s pants as he tried to run away from a state trooper during a traffic stop.
Tulsa television station KOTV reports the incident happened shortly after midnight Friday in Okmulgee County. Authorities say the man tried to run away when the trooper asked him about a chemical smell.
Trooper Shiloh Hall says the man had an active meth lab in his pants that burst during a struggle with the trooper. The man was checked out by emergency personnel and booked in the Okmulgee County jail on a drug charge.
A portable meth lab is also known as a one-pot lab, where a smaller batch of the drug is manufactured.

20 years ago when LEO was afraid.....

..... Heroes came forward to help, risking their own lives.
We all saw the images of Reginald Denny getting the shit kicked out of him in LA but I never knew how he was rescued. Here's the story of 4 people that risked their own lives to help a man they didn't even know.
Maybe Obama, Sharpton and Jackson should look to these folks for advice on how NOT to divide our Nation by race.

In one of the most disturbing images from the Los Angeles riots, six black assailants dragged Reginald Denny, a 33-year-old truck driver, out of his truck in South Los Angeles and bashed his head in with a brick. A television chopper broadcast the violence live. The attack happened shortly after not-guilty verdicts were handed down in the racially charged trial of the police beating of Rodney King, which kicked off six days of rioting that left dozens dead and thousands injured.
About a mile and a half away, Titus Murphy and his then-girlfriend Terri Barnett were watching the Denny attack on live television. Murphy, who was an unemployed engineer at the time, couldn't believe what he saw.
"When this gentleman was getting beat something was just telling me this isn't right, this isn't what it's all about," he told Yahoo News 20 years later. "When he got hit in the head with the brick something told me to go down there. I just reacted."
More HERE


And from HERE I got this:
Shortly after, Murphy saw a patrol car and several officers. He had a moment of hope that help had finally arrived. Murphy said he made eye contact with the officers, and they just continued on.
“We were on our own," he said.

And this:
The passage of time has only re-enforced Murphy’s belief that it is too easy, even reckless, to make the riots just about race.
He believes people should be judged on their actions –whether good or bad – and not on color.
"There’s only one race and that’s the human race," Murphy said. "All this other stuff we’re doing, we’re just wasting our valuable time."

Wes Hardin obituary

My Great Grandfather was second cousin to John Wesley Hardin and related in a roundabout way to the Clements boys as well as Jim Miller who was pretty notorious even before he was suspected of ambushing and killing Pat Garrett. Hell, they were all related to each other on way or another.
I can remember Gramps bouncing me on his knee when I was a li'l bitty knuckledragger, maybe 4-5 years old and telling me that he can remember Wes Hardin bouncing him on his knee and telling him gunfighting stories. Anyways, I ran across this from when I was tracing family history a few years ago.


The Gonzales Inquirer,
Thursday, August 22, 1895.


San Antonio Express.
El Paso, Tex., Aug. 19. - (Special) -


John Wesley Hardin, the noted Texas desperado, is no more. He was shot and instantly killed to-night about 11:30 o'clock in the Acme saloon by Constable John Sellman. Hardin threatened Sellman's life several times during the evening but on meeting, Sellman was too quick for him.

Sellman, who is very cool and deliberate, but at the same time very quick, has killed a number of bad men and Hardin reckoned without his host when he ran up against him. Hardin fell dead with his boots on before he could get a shot at Sellman.

Wes Hardin, as he was familiarly known over Southwest Texas, was especially the most noted of the living Texas desperadoes. Hardin's early career was spent in DeWitt county, and he was a terror in that section in the '70s, or until he was sent to the penitentiary.

He was sentenced to fifteen years, but got a time allowance for good conduct, which enabled him to secure his discharge eighteen months earlier than would have been the case had he been compelled to serve out his full time.

Hardin during his incarceration concluded that upon his release he would take to the practice of law, and so spent the latter part of the period of his confinement in studying the intricacies of jurisprudence. He gave his attention principally to the criminal law, in which he expected to figure with distinction.

After spending some time in Cuero and afterwards at Gonzales, where he nearly got into trouble in the excitement of the county election last year, he came to El Paso about three months ago.

Hardin was the son of a Methodist preacher, and was born in Trinity county being 45 years of age at the time of his death. He was sent to the penitentiary from Lampasas county in 1876 for the killing of the sheriff of Comanche county, who was attempting to arrest him.

He was released in 1894, and stood his last trial for murder in Cuero in the same year. [According to The El Paso Times, the Cuero case was dismissed.]

In personal appearance Hardin was as typical a Texas desperado of the earliest type as was ever portrayed in a dime novel. He was of medium weight, nearly six feet tall, straight as an arrow and dark complexioned, with an eye as keen as a hawk.

As an expert shot he was the peer of either King Fisher or Ben Thompson in their palmiest days. He could shoot as quickly and aim as straight as either of them. It was almost sure death for anyone who was in front of his gun when Hardin drew a bead.

Seventeen scalps are said to have dangled from his belt and it is likely that the number of human lives that he has taken will exceed that number.

The trouble which resulted in his death last night was brought on by his telling Constable Sellman, in the Acme saloon, he did not like his (Sellman's) son, who was one of the party of officers who had arrested him, a few nights before. One word brought on another and it ended by his telling Sellman to get out in the middle of the street and he would come soon and he would come "smoking."

Sellman waited for him several hours but he did not come out. Then Sellman went into the saloon with a friend and, stepping up to the bar near Hardin they both watched one another through the mirror in front. After Sellman had taken his drink he says Hardin reached for his gun and he pulled his own and turned loose. The first shot crashed through Hardin's brain and killed him instantly. He received two more shots while falling to the floor. He had a gun in each hip pocket, but he did not get a chance to pull either. Thus ended the career of the man who has for several months been feared by the public in general.

NY cops fire 84 shots at suspect, who lives

NEW YORK — Two Harlem cops yesterday fired a staggering 84 shots at an armed thug after he squeezed off one round at them — but the punk incredibly survived and was charged with slaying his sleeping kid sister and trying to kill their mother, authorities said.

Murray, 28, suffered 14 bullet wounds during the mayhem after refusing police orders to drop his .22-caliber "Saturday Night Special," officials said.

The police officer fired 45 shots — one round in his gun's chamber, two 15-round magazines and all but one round in his third magazine. He told investigators he thought he was out of ammo. The sergeant also fired one shot he kept in the chamber, two 15-shot magazines and eight rounds from his third magazine, Browne said.
After Murray crumpled to the ground from his wounds, there were still four rounds in his small, .22-caliber Röhm Sontheim Brenz, police said.
He was in critical but stable condition last night after undergoing surgery at Harlem Hospital.

Remember the link I posted a week or two ago about George Zimmerman's website, where you could donate a few bucks to him? I ran across this today while reading my Right Wing Terrorist News and Blogs.

*****

ORLANDO, Florida — George Zimmerman’s website seeking money for his legal defense may have been shut down, but apparently not before pulling in quite a haul for the high-profile Florida murder defendant.
The attorney for Zimmerman, charged in the February shooting of unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin, says in a TV interview Thursday that his client’s website has raised more than $200,000.
Mark O’Mara, speaking to CNN, said he learned about the money on Wednesday and will inform a judge at a Friday hearing.
Zimmerman has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of Trayvon Martin, though he has claimed he shot Martin in self-defense, invoking the state’s “Stand Your Ground” law. The incident sparked a national debate as to whether the shooting was an act of racial profiling by Zimmerman, who has white and Hispanic ancestry. Martin was black.
Zimmerman was released from jail this week after paying 10 percent of $150,000 bail.

Yeah, I got piles too.

Hit 'em hard and fast

I know Krav Maga is a recognized fighting technigue but when I first saw it my only thought is "Shit, that's just good ol' street fighting - kicking, shoving, biting and gouging. I've been doing that all my life!" Well, yeah, it is street fighting but it's more than that. I'm not a student, so I can't tell you what all is involved but I've been able to pick out a few things about it like using balance to your advantage, pressure points, and hard, fast follow-up on every move. Never slow down or stop once the fight begins. And obviously lots of practice.

Pops always stressed that there is no such thing as a fair fight. Any fight that you are in for more than about 5 seconds is a fight you're for sure going to get hurt in and very possibly lose. His advice to me was to think, never lose your temper and find the biggest goddamned stick I could handle, but a rock will do in a pinch. Stay as far away from him as I can and hurt him. If I have to close with him, hit him with the heel of my hand. If I get pinned, bite something until I can taste blood, then bite harder. Gouge eyeballs, break eardrums, make that motherfucker cry like a little bitch.
Pretty heady advice for a third grader. Thank God I wasn't strong enough at that age to do any real damage.




The only thing I can think of that I would've done that he didn't was to break the elbow when he was standing over him with his opponent's arm straightened out. A quick kick and he's done.

I've noticed a few Krav Maga studios (or whatever the fuck you call them) around - might be worth looking into.
Naw, I'll probably break a hip or something. I'll just stick to shooting motherfuckers.

Anything the federal government is involved in can't be good



WASHINGTON (AP) — The House ignored Obama administration objections Thursday and approved legislation aimed at helping stop electronic attacks on critical U.S. infrastructure and private companies.
On a bipartisan vote of 248-168, the GOP-controlled House backed the Cyber Intelligence Sharing and Protection Act, which would encourage companies and the federal government to share information collected on the Internet to prevent electronic attacks from cybercriminals, foreign governments and terrorists.
"This is the last bastion of things we need to do to protect this country," Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Mich., chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, said after more than five hours of debate.

She's breaking us just with her fucking vacations!

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and fights government corruption, announced today that it obtained documents from the United States Air Force and the United States Secret Service detailing costs associated with Michelle Obama’s controversial August 2010 vacation to Spain. According to a Judicial Watch analysis, the records indicate a total combined cost of at least $467,585.
Judicial Watch obtained the Secret Service records pursuant to an August 2010 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. (The agency notified Judicial Watch that it withheld 78 pages of responsive records in their entirety.) Judicial Watch obtained the U.S. Air Force records pursuant to a March 5, 2012, FOIA lawsuit.
The following are highlights from the U.S. Air Force records, which indicate a total cost of $213,124.15:
According to U.S. Department of Defense’s 2010 published hourly rates, the total cost of flying Michelle Obama and her guests from Camp Andrews to Malaga and then to Mallorca and back to the United States was $199,323.75. This is based on approximately 17 hours and 15 minutes of total flying time. The 15-member flight crew stayed at Tryp Guadalmar, a nearby motel. Lodging cost was $10,290.60 and car rental cost was $2,633.50. Food cost was $876.30, including $57.68 for four bottles of maple syrup and a package of pancake mix.

(CNN) — She’s known to take discreet trips to Target and Baskin-Robbins, but first lady Michelle Obama said Thursday she’d still like more freedom to get out of the White House.
“Sometimes we can’t sneak out often on our own without security and motorcades and people with us,” Obama said at a “Take your Child to Work Day” held at the White House. She was explaining what she would change about being the nation’s first lady.
“It is hard to sneak around and do what you want,” Obama continued. “I have done it a couple of times. But you know one fantasy I have, and the Secret Service they keep looking at me because they think I might actually do it, is to walk right out the front door and just keep walking.”

Callin' it like I see it

 

Whew. For a second I thought Mooch-elle got out.

Lord help us all

A few weeks ago Skidmark sent me a link to a political knowledge quiz - 13 simple questions - shit like what party did Abraham Lincoln belong to, you know, high school shit.
I took it and missed one (I'd have sworn the cocksucker was a democrat) and then clicked for my results and standings.

Now I consider myself to be fairly well informed about the state of politics but I miss a lot of shit when I get distracted by camel toes and cleavage so it came as no big surprise that I blew the Lincoln one. So sue me.
I forgot where I was going with this before I got distracted by thinking about camel toes and cleavage.
Oh yeah. Being fairly informed, it came as no big surprise to me that I scored better than 81% of the rest of whoever else took the quiz.
What is fucking shocking is that if you look to the LEFT of where I am, you can see where the liberals start scoring in the lower 10-20%. What's fucking scary is that 4% (FOUR PERCENT) missed every fucking question.

I just about shit when I saw that. There among us, is 4% of the population that missed every fucking question on this quiz. Yet these folks are allowed to vote, to drive, to shop and generally wander around unsupervised in public. Oh my God. I do not have that much ammo. None of us do. Four percent of the population that's too dumb to die against Three Percent. It ain't gonna be pretty.

First Lady Michelle Obama boasted at a campaign event in Omaha, Neb. on Tuesday that “we made history” when the president’s health care proposal was enacted and the administration issued a regulation mandating that insurance companies provide women with free contraceptives.
“Two years ago, we made history together by finally passing health reform,” said Mrs. Obama. “And because we passed this law, insurance companies will now have to cover basic preventive care — things like prenatal care, mammograms, contraception — at no extra cost.”
The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) finalized the “preventive services” regulation in January and it will take effect for most employers on Aug. 1. The regulation mandates that nearly all health insurance plans in the United States must provide women with sterilizations and all FDA-approved contraceptives (including those that can induce abortions) without any fees or co-pay.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and many Catholic leaders in the United States have voiced strong opposition to the mandate because they say it would force Catholics — whose church teaches that sterilization, contraception and abortion are wrong — to act against their consciences and the teachings of their faith. In comments submitted to the Department of Health and Human Services, the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops called the regulation an “unprecedented attack” on religious liberty and asked the administration to rescind it in its entirety.

Sen. James Inhofe (R-OK) took to the Senate floor today to draw attention to a video of a top EPA official saying the EPA’s “philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies - just as the Romans crucified random citizens in areas they conquered to ensure obedience.
Inhofe quoted a little-watched video from 2010 of Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) official, Region VI Administrator Al Armendariz, admitting that EPA’s “general philosophy” is to “crucify” and “make examples” of oil and gas companies.
In the video, Administrator Armendariz says:
“I was in a meeting once and I gave an analogy to my staff about my philosophy of enforcement, and I think it was probably a little crude and maybe not appropriate for the meeting, but I’ll go ahead and tell you what I said:
“It was kind of like how the Romans used to, you know, conquer villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go in to a little Turkish town somewhere, they’d find the first five guys they saw and they’d crucify them.
“Then, you know, that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.”
“It’s a deterrent factor,” Armendariz said, explaining that the EPA is following the Romans’ philosophy for subjugating conquered villages.

It appears one of the great challenges that President Obama has had to overcome in office is that no one around him is as good at his job as he is.
From Jodi Kantor’s The Obamas, page 66:
Obama had always had a high estimation of his ability to cast and run his operation. When David Plouffe, his campaign manager, first interviewed for a job with him in 2006, the senator gave him a warning: “I think I could probably do every job on the campaign better than the people I’ll hire to do it,” he said. “It’s hard to give up control when that’s all I’ve known.” Obama said nearly the same thing to Patrick Gaspard, whom he hired to be the campaign’s political director. “I think I’m a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,” Obama told him. “I know more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m gonna think I’m a better political director than my political director.”

FUCK YOU OBAMA!!!!!

The Quote of the Decade:
“The fact that we are here today to debate raising America 's debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the US Government cannot pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government's reckless fiscal policies. Increasing America 's debt weakens us domestically and internationally. Leadership means that, "the buck stops here.' Instead, Washington is shifting the burden of bad choices today onto the backs of our children and grandchildren. America has a debt problem and a failure of leadership. Americans deserve better.”
~ Senator Barack H. Obama, March 2006

Patriots, mark your targets.

There are at least 63 active drone sites around the U.S, federal authorities have been forced to reveal following a landmark Freedom of Information lawsuit.
The unmanned planes – some of which may have been designed to kill terror suspects – are being launched from locations in 20 states.
Most of the active drones are deployed from military installations, enforcement agencies and border patrol teams, according to the Federal Aviation Authority.
But, astonishingly, 19 universities and colleges are also registered as owners of what are officially known as unmanned aerial vehicles.
It is thought that many of institutions, which include Cornell, the University of Colorado, Georgia Tech, and Eastern Gateway Community College, are developing drone technology.

You've got to hit the link and go to the site, there ain't no fucking way in hell that I can do the article justice. There are several maps there showing different regions of the country and Canada where these launch sites are located.

And then I want all the motherfuckers that said I was full of shit a few months back when I posted that we could look forward to thousands of drones overflying us to kiss my fucking ass. It's already happening. They may be smaller than what the military uses when they invade other sovereign nation's airspace and they may be unarmed, but they can still do us damage and they're still invading my fucking privacy. On the plus side, they don't look like all of them are capable of high speed or altitude, making them easier to bring down if you're having a bad day or a toothache.
Thanks to Sammy for being on his toes and passing this on to us.

You may be a skank

Oh no! People are mad at me!!!

I lost a half dozen followers overnight, 4 of them within 2 hours of posting about our PatCom.
Fuck 'em, getting pissed at me because I called them on their rudeness or non-committal attitude.

The whole upshot of the deal is just like me and Bill Nye were commenting back and forth: We just had the first culling and we didn't even have to do a fucking thing, they did it for themselves.

This may have been the first meeting and it certainly won't be the last - but I'll be damned if I publicize it.
The vetting process just got harder.

Man beaten on his porch by a black mob

Mobile police need your help to catch a mob that beat Matthew Owens so badly that he's in critical condition.
According to police, Owens fussed at some kids playing basketball in the middle of Delmar Drive about 8:30 Saturday night. They say the kids left and a group of adults returned, armed with everything but the kitchen sink.
Police tell News 5 the suspects used chairs, pipes and paint cans to beat Owens.
Owens' sister, Ashley Parker, saw the attack. "It was the scariest thing I have ever witnessed." Parker says 20 people, all African American, attacked her brother on the front porch of his home, using "brass buckles, paint cans and anything they could get their hands on."
Police will only say "multiple people" are involved.
What Parker says happened next could make the fallout from the brutal beating even worse. As the attackers walked away, leaving Owen bleeding on the ground, Parker says one of them said "Now thats justice for Trayvon." Trayvon Martin is the unarmed teenager police say was shot and killed February 26 by neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman in Samford, Florida.
Police canvassed the area, but did not find any suspects. They're asking anyone with information to call them at 251-208-7211, Crime Stoppers at 251-208-7000, or text a tip to 274637 and include the keyword CRIME 411.

*****

Three things:
The cops can't find twenty people that live int the neighborhood? Really?

Justice for Treyvon? My ass - it's just another excuse for them to excercise their racism.

But what I find hard to believe is that he allowed it to happen. If I see a mob advancing towards me, I'm not going to stand there looking stupid and feeling safe because I'm on my own front porch. Fuck no, I'm retreating to a more defensible location and arming myself. Let the games begin.....

Yes indeed

Who's the terrorists now, fuckers?

Kids today. They say and do the darndest things, even under the watchful eye of the Transportation Security Administration. So who knows what happens when your 4-year-old daughter gives grandma a hug at the airport security checkpoint. In addition to that peck on the cheek, a deadly weapon may have been exchanged.
A few readers have pointed to a story on Facebook, posted by a Montana mom who was flying home from Kansas with her two young children and their grandmother.
According to the poster, she and her kids got through the checkpoint without trouble but grandma had triggered the alarm. She went through the scanner again, but the screener could not firmly ID what was setting off the alarm, and grandma was asked to have a seat and wait for a pat-down.
This is when the 4-year-old ran over to give grandma a hug:

"They made very brief contact, no longer than a few seconds. The Transportation Security Officers(TSO) who were present responded to this very simple action in the worst way imaginable.
First, a TSO began yelling at my child, and demanded she too must sit down and await a full body pat-down. I was prevented from coming any closer, explaining the situation to her, or consoling her in any way. My daughter, who was dressed in tight leggings, a short sleeve shirt and mary jane shoes, had no pockets, no jacket and nothing in her hands. The TSO refused to let my daughter pass through the scanners once more, to see if she too would set off the alarm. It was implied, several times, that my Mother, in their brief two-second embrace, had passed a handgun to my daughter.
My child, who was obviously terrified, had no idea what was going on, and the TSOs involved still made no attempt to explain it to her. When they spoke to her, it was devoid of any sort of compassion, kindness or respect. They told her she had to come to them, alone, and spread her arms and legs. She screamed, "No! I don't want to!" then did what any frightened young child might, she ran the opposite direction.
That is when a TSO told me they would shut down the entire airport, cancel all flights, if my daughter was not restrained. It was then they declared my daughter a "high-security-threat".
Two TSOs were following her and again I was told to have no contact with my child. At this point, I was beyond upset, I disregarded what the TSO had said to me, and I ran to my daughter. I picked her up. I hugged her. I tried to comfort her...
I was forced to set my child down, they brought her into a side room to administer a pat-down, I followed. My sweet four-year-old child was shaking and crying uncontrollably, she did not want to stand still and let strangers touch her... A TSO began repeating that in the past she had "seen a gun in a teddy bear." The TSO seemed utterly convinced my child was concealing a weapon, as if there was no question about it. Worse still, she was treating my daughter like she understood how dangerous this was, as if my daughter was not only a tool in a terrorist plot, but actually in on it. The TSO loomed over my daughter, with an angry grimace on her face, and ordered her to stop crying. When my scared child could not do so, two TSOs called for backup saying "The suspect is not cooperating." The suspect, of course, being a frightened child. They treated my daughter no better than if she had been a terrorist...
A third TSO arrived to the scene, and showed no more respect than the first two had given. All three were barking orders at my daughter, telling her to stand still and cease crying. When she did not stop crying on command, they demanded we leave the airport. They claimed they could not safely check my daughter for dangerous items if she was in tears. I will admit, I lost my temper.
Finally, a manager intervened. He determined that my child could, in fact, be cleared through security while crying. I was permitted to hold her while the TSO checked her body. When they found nothing hidden on my daughter, they were forced to let us go, but not until after they had examined my ID and boarding passes for a lengthy amount of time. When we arrived at our gate, I noticed that the TSOs had followed us through the airport. I was told something was wrong with my boarding pass and I would have to show it to them again. Upon seeing the TSO, my daughter was thrown into hysterics. Eventually, we were able to board our flight."


After reading this story, we contacted the TSA to see whether or not the TSOs followed the correct procedure for handling this situation. Here is what the agency had to say:
"TSA has recently implemented modified screening procedures of children 12 and under that further reduce — though not eliminate — the need for a physical pat-down for children. In this case, however, the child had completed screening but had contact with another member of her family who had not completed the screening process. TSA has reviewed the incident and determined that our officers followed proper current screening procedures in conducting a modified pat-down on the child."

One of the benefits of Patriots getting together is the sharing of resources that's going to naturally happen when 2 or more guys that are interested in the same thing get together. "Hey, now that's cooler than shit, where'd you get it?" Doesn't matter if it's guns in the mountains, golf in the valley, or flower arranging in San Francisco, guys like to show off their shit and have future shit shown to them. We've been doing it since we were living in caves showing off our latest clubs. Seriously, watch 3 guys get together and within 5 minutes somebody's pulling something out of their pocket to show off.

Joe showed up at PatCon and brought out a dynamite chest rig - lightweight, simple but sturdy yet low profile enough you can hug the ground real tight when you need to get your ass down.
Then he goes on to tell us that it's made by a buddy of his, another Patriot from Redding, and gave us business cards. When I got home I checked it out and was impressed enough with his designs and different products that it warrants a mention here. Belts, pouches, chest rigs, bags and packs.  This is custom gear with mass production prices.
I haven't personally bought any of his products (yet) but I did go over the rig that Joe had and found it to be of excellent quality. Check the site out for yourself and you can see that his products are very reasonably priced. An added bonus is the guy's a Patriot.....

It's a good thing I'm a mellow motherfucker

I didn't get my root canal and my soon-to-be ex dentist is rapidly approaching the top of my list when I go active.

I walked into the office and announced that I was there, calm and no need to call the law which of course completely unnerved all the other folks in the waiting room. I dumped my chew in the trash and picked up a copy of Time and the first thing that I saw was that they had decided that Claire Danes was in the top 100 most influential people of the year. Claire Danes the actress? Really??? I tossed the magazine in the trash where it belonged and just about that time the dental assistant hollered for me. Shit, they want to get rid of me quick. Right on.
I sat back in the chair and she looked at my chart and said that I was there for the doctor to check the tooth hole left by last week's extraction.
"Uh-uh. Root canal."
"No, not according to your chart." Then she looked at me and saw I was not real happy at the sudden turn of events. "I better go get Doctor."
"Yeah. Trot that ol' boy in here."

Pretty soon Hari the Hindu comes in and tells me that I need a root canal and because it's a molar I have to go to a specialist and that I am here now for a tooth hole checking.
I let him look at my tooth hole which took less than 5 seconds. "We could've done this shit over the phone, man. You told me last week I needed a root canal and now you're telling me that I'm here for a fucking referral because you don't do root canals on molars?" I was being pretty calm about the whole situation but Hari was getting real nervous.
Then he really fucked up and started chattering. "Yes. I will give you a referral and we will make you an appointment for a consultation. Then you will make an appointment for the procedure. After the procedure, you will return to me so can make the post and the crow......"
"Whoa whoa whoa. You have got to be fucking kidding me. You're standing there telling me with a straight face that I have at least 3 more visits for a FUCKING ROOT CANAL?  Answer me this: Why didn't you make the appointment for the consultation when I was in here last week?"
"I can extract the too...."
"You're starting to piss me off. I'm not pulling another tooth unless I have to. Fuck this shit."

I stopped off at the desk and had Shelley make the appointment with the specialist. She was real nice to me and got it done in about 3.5 seconds. No fucking way in hell was I gonna let Hari do any drilling on my head. I'll let a specialist do it and either have him do the post and crown or find another dentist. I walked out to the waiting room and saw it was empty. Good.

What's bad is that I have never treated any help or tradesmen in that manner before. If somebody gives me shitty service I'll keep my mouth shut, move on and conduct my business elsewhere. I rarely even complain to management, I just spend my money where I'm treated with civility.
Hey, if he wants to pad his pocket ripping off the insurance company with bullshit visits, good for him. None of my business - until he starts using me to do it. That's when I object.

NorCal PatCon

I know y'all are waiting breathlessly for a report on Bill's get-together this past weekend and I gotta tell you that this is actually hard for me to write. There was some good and there was some bad. I'll tell you the good shit first:
Me and Woody rolled in about noon and were greeted first by the world's largest German Shepherd and a Little Big Dog, then Bill and Joe came out and introduced themselves. Joe had gotten there a couple hours before us and was giving Bill a hand with last minute details.
We retired to the house where Bill was getting the meat ready for the grill and started our meeting before others started trickling in.
We ended up with about a dozen folks there, mostly locals. Bill told me that there were some youngsters that worked for him showing up, plus a couple of older ladies that were curious about what we stood for. The ladies were an absolute delight and a welcome addition to our movement.
The youngsters? I cannot begin to tell you how impressed I was with these young men. All in their early to mid twenties and true Patriots. They were full of questions, expressed their opinions, listened to ours and were eager to learn, plus they took over the firewood detail for which I was grateful given my advanced age. Come nightfall we all sat around the fire pit and did manly things like spitting in the fire and scritching dog's ears and solving the Nations' problems.

Now comes the bad shit and it's coming with a Bill Nye attitude:
I ran information and an RSVP survey for 7 weeks and had 16 people respond that they were attending. Out of that 16, 3 of us showed up. Out of the other 13, nobody wrote to cancel.
Folks, Bill went to a lot of trouble and great personal expense (food for 30, porta-potty, etc) to do this for something he believes in. He's a working man and as with all of us, money is tight. Now we all know things come up at the last minute but damn it, it ain't that fucking hard to let somebody know you can't make it. Okay, that covers the rudeness part of the post.

I also know that California is a big state and maybe there were last minute thoughts about driving that far. Uh-uh. That ain't no fucking excuse. I drove 5 1/2 hours and Joe drove at least 4 hours, plus he left his wife defenseless against 2 young children. That's a small sacrifice for something so important. The only exception to this that I can see is the gentleman from Canada that wrote and said he would try to attend. Him not making it, I can understand.
I know that folks forget, although I can't see how anybody could let something as important as this slip their mind. Everybody I know has a fucking calender. Shit, I was counting the days down! No fucking way in hell was I going to miss this.
Bottom line - Talk's cheap. We found out the hard way who we can count on, but at least those that made it Bill's know when our backs are against the wall we have Men that will stand with us.
Ironically, Bill had expressed concern about attracting keyboard commandos. It turns out he didn't have much to worry about.

So you got a mixed report. Maybe I shouldn't have posted the no-show part but I'm calling a spade a spade, not to mention it cost Bill a bunch of money that he could've put elsewhere. Common courtesy goes a long way.
But as Daniel remarked "Wirecutter - better a no-show than leaving you to hang later on..."
Regardless though of the disappointing turnout, I gained some new friends and that right there made it all worth while.
Bill, I want to thank you again for your hospitality and a great time. That was a weekend that I will always remember. Keep mentoring those kids, they're our future. You're doing a fine job.

Fun fun fun

Off to the dentist again for a root canal.
Either I'm going to be feeling better or he's going to be feeling worse when I leave there.
I'm tired of this shit.

Ehhhh, probably wasn't a good idea

Thinking back on it, eating a half a quart jar of habanero stuffed olives probably wasn't all that good an idea. I was up til 2:30 this morning shitting like a chocolate milkshake machine.
But damn, they're SO good.....

Here he is to save the day.....


WASHINGTON (NYT) — One Saturday last fall, President Obama interrupted a White House strategy meeting to raise an issue not on the agenda. He declared, aides recalled, that the administration needed to more aggressively use executive power to govern in the face of Congressional obstructionism.
“We had been attempting to highlight the inability of Congress to do anything,” recalled William M. Daley, who was the White House chief of staff at the time. “The president expressed frustration, saying we have got to scour everything and push the envelope in finding things we can do on our own.”
For Mr. Obama, that meeting was a turning point. As a senator and presidential candidate, he had criticized George W. Bush for flouting the role of Congress. And during his first two years in the White House, when Democrats controlled Congress, Mr. Obama largely worked through the legislative process to achieve his domestic policy goals.
But increasingly in recent months, the administration has been seeking ways to act without Congress. Branding its unilateral efforts “We Can’t Wait,” a slogan that aides said Mr. Obama coined at that strategy meeting, the White House has rolled out dozens of new policies — on creating jobs for veterans, preventing drug shortages, raising fuel economy standards, curbing domestic violence and more.
Each time, Mr. Obama has emphasized the fact that he is bypassing lawmakers. When he announced a cut in refinancing fees for federally insured mortgages last month, for example, he said: “If Congress refuses to act, I’ve said that I’ll continue to do everything in my power to act without them.”

And we're outta here.....

'California is God's best moment," says Joel Kotkin. "It's the best place in the world to live." Or at least it used to be.
Mr. Kotkin, one of the nation's premier demographers, left his native New York City in 1971 to enroll at the University of California, Berkeley. The state was a far-out paradise for hipsters who had grown up listening to the Mamas & the Papas' iconic "California Dreamin'" and the Beach Boys' "California Girls." But it also attracted young, ambitious people "who had a lot of dreams, wanted to build big companies." Think Intel, Apple and Hewlett-Packard.
Now, however, the Golden State's fastest-growing entity is government and its biggest product is red tape. The first thing that comes to many American minds when you mention California isn't Hollywood or tanned girls on a beach, but Greece. Many progressives in California take that as a compliment since Greeks are ostensibly happier. But as Mr. Kotkin notes, Californians are increasingly pursuing happiness elsewhere.
Nearly four million more people have left the Golden State in the last two decades than have come from other states. This is a sharp reversal from the 1980s, when 100,000 more Americans were settling in California each year than were leaving. According to Mr. Kotkin, most of those leaving are between the ages of 5 and 14 or 34 to 45. In other words, young families.

Zimmerman out on bail

(CBS News) SANFORD, Fla. - George Zimmerman was released on bail overnight.
Officials in Florida say Zimmerman, the neighborhood watch volunteer who shot Trayvon Martin to death and is accused of second-degree murder, will be carefully tracked wherever he goes. And that will almost certainly be somewhere outside Florida.
Zimmerman left jail right around midnight Monday morning, wearing what looked like a bulletproof vest under his jacket, and presumably headed for the safest and most secret place his attorney could find.
For 12 days, Zimmerman woke up in the Seminole County Jail in Sanford. He was released after posting a $150,000 bond and being fitted with a GPS monitoring device.
To make bail, Zimmerman had to put up 10 percent, or $15,000, of the bond money. His father said that might only be raised through a second mortgage.

Under the terms of his bail, Zimmerman must surrender his passport, observe a strict 7-p.m.-to-6-a.m. curfew and cannot use a firearm.

Zimmerman's GPS tracking device will follow him in real time anywhere in the U.S. He also has to check in with authorities every three days.

I wonder what would have happened if Zimmerman had told the judge "What? I can't carry or use a firearm with all the death threats that I've received? Fuuuuuuck YOU!" and then refused to leave the jail.

Introducing your new national/local police force

Capping a lengthy investigation into counterfeit and pirated merchandise, including the allegedly illegal use of a major sports apparel trademark, federal Homeland Security Investigations agents on Sunday raided the Patapsco Flea Market and confiscated numerous items being sold there.

Nicole Navas, a public affairs specialist with the Department of Homeland Security, said sports apparel, musical recordings and cosmetics were among the items under scrutiny in the 2 1/2-year-long investigation.
The 300,000-square-foot flea market is located in the 1400 block of West Patapsco Avenue on the southwest side of Baltimore and has hundreds of visitors each weekend.

"HSI special agents, with assistance from our law enforcement and industry partners, are seizing what is believed to be counterfeit, pirated and unlicensed merchandise that was being sold at the flea market," Navas said.

She told WJZ-TV that additional information would be available in court documents on Monday.

In a statement Sunday, Under Armour said: "Individuals who produce and sell counterfeit goods harm the American economy. The reality of counterfeiting is that it's much greater than just buying a knock off item at a discounted price, it's a multibillion dollar a year problem that undermines corporations."

In 1996, Baltimore police charged 30 vendors at the Patapsco Flea Market with selling counterfeit clothing. Authorities confiscated more than $1 million worth of what police alleged was counterfeit Nike, Timberland and Tommy Hilfiger apparel.

*****

I bet the Departments of Agriculture, Education, and Energy are all pissed off because they got left out of the raid.
Being a good little citizen, I'm going to assume that instead of being arrogant fucking pricks that are overstepping their authority, the DHS just didn't have anything better to do that day so they decided to raid a flea market to keep in practice.
