Our friend the Wolf.....

Saw this in Pravda a little while ago and had to post it for all the PETAphiles and other animal rights people that might land here:

Kolmarden Wildlife Park in Sweden is a popular tourist attraction with up to half a million visitors a year. On Sunday it became the centre of a horror scene as a pack of eight wolves launched a ferocious attack on their 30-year-old keeper, mauling her to death.
The attack happened around 11 a.m. Sunday morning at Sweden's largest zoo when the 30-year-old keeper entered the wolves' pen to treat the animals she had helped to rear when they were cubs. For some reason the animals launched a ferocious attack on her as she was treating them, alone in the enclosure with nobody around.
The alarm was given when she had failed to make radio contact with the authorities. Colleagues went to the scene but could not enter the enclosure due to the ferocity of the animals and the emergency services were called.
All they could do was to look on helplessly as the woman, still alive, was trying to fend off the ferocious animals tearing her apart in front of their eyes. The wolf enclosure was particularly attractive to visitors because they were allowed to go inside to pet the wolves.
There were no witnesses to the attack. The keeper had been working for three years at the zoo and had helped raise the wolves when they were cubs - staff often entered the enclosure alone.
Experts state that such attacks are extremely rare among wolves in zoos. It has not yet been decided whether the wolves will be destroyed.

And also in Pravda I found this:

Our friend the Turkey.....
A turkey pecked at a 2-year-old boy in the temple in a village in Ukraine. The bird broke the child's skull brought in an infection. The parents brought the child to the hospital when it was too late, and the child died.
At first, the parents went to a rural paramedic. The child was taken to the regional hospital only on the second day after incident. The child was having fever and nausea all the time and then developed purulent meningitis. The infection deteriorated the brain, and the child died on the second day.
"Unfortunately, the child arrived in the state of clinical death. We, unfortunately, could not do anything, but everything was done to save this child", a neurosurgeon said. "There was a so-called anaerobic infection on the beak of the bird, to which tetanus is referred - we will find this out from the bacteriological analysis. This infection was extremely aggressive, and led to the development of purulent meningitis in one day," he added, MIGnews.com reports.
The police also investigate the responsibility of the child's parents.

Motherfucking animals are getting out of control, man. Something needs to be done about this shit. The first attack was probably on a liberal so that's cool, but the little fucker in the second story deserves some revenge.
I hope they serve that turkey at the funeral.

Makes you want to go right back to bed, huh?

Dogbit beats vet bills anyday

Fucking wolfdog must be sick. He's laying at my feet devouring a rawhide bone instead having his nose up Lisa's ass.
Maybe  he's just got a monsterous crick in his neck or hurt his front legs tripping over Lisa's feet.
Either that or he's fixing to ambush me in a little bit. Yeah, that's it.....

And they spent how much to fiqure this out?

Small Cell Encryption 101

So your cell is organized, everybody knows their job, you're properly isolated from the big picture, you're set up with your throwaway phones, but you want a secure way to blanket communicate without breaking the bank. What to do, what to do.....
Well, the first thing you do is count of how many people are in your cell, then you go down to the bookstore and you buy however many copies of the same book that you'll need. Four people, four books.
It doesn't make a bit of difference which book you buy, we're looking for words, not a storyline here, but they have to be exactly the same.
I know me telling you to pay cash instead of using your debit or credit card is starting to get old, but pay cash anytime you're doing anything covert. Don't do anything to leave a paper trail.

Okay, so now you have your (code)books. To compose a message, find a word that you need, note the page number, count the lines and number of words from the left (or right) and write it down. Do this until you have all the words necessary and then transcribe them into your message.
Your messsage with then look something like this:
49/12/3-116/3/2-14/16/18-178/1/4
The receiver(s) get out their book and go to page 49, line 12, 3rd word from the left and record the first word which is Oh, then repeat until they've gotten the message "Oh Shit She's Pregnant".
Simple, yeah? It is, really. Simplfy it even further and use a random single page document as your code sheet and do letters instead of words. 2/24 means Line 2 letter 24. Easy.
Or everybody go down and buy a magazine and work from a pre-determined page. You get the idea.

You can encrypt it further by using each number to denote a letter that's in another code instead of a word, you can tweak it around however you want but keep in mind that only the people that know what book is being used at the moment can break the code. Unless somebody knows exactly which print of what title you're using, you can transmit your information freely over the internet, your cell, or whatever. You can even scream it from your rooftop if you want to. Yes, doing all of the above will attract unwanted attention, but the word will get out unhindered.

It is important that the books are identical. Each word has to be in the same place in every book, so the dumbass that goes down and buys large print or a paperback when everybody else is using hardcover will not get the word that she's preggers.
If operators are not able to obtain all the books from the same source, then verification needs to take place to insure everybody has the same copy and proper caution needs to come into play while doing this verification.

Obviously, this is for small cell use only. The more people know what book or page you're using, the more chance there is of somebody screwing it up somehow. Switch off at prearranged times if you're really paranoid.
Buy books that would normally be found in your library so they won't look out of place. If you're into history and Lady Chatterly's Lover is next to your chair.....
Stay away from the King James Version of the Bible. All those Thees and Thous will have you branded as a religious zealot.

Basically what I'm saying is you don't have to spend hours trying to work out one time pads when you have them available in any supermarket.

You tell 'em!!!!!

You can see the SS rounding the back of the bus to shoot him down or haul him off to the re-education camp or to make him look at Mooch-elle or something.

Fuck the IRS

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court's decision to uphold most of President Barack Obama's health care law will come home to roost for most taxpayers in about 2½ years, when they'll have to start providing proof on their tax returns that they have health insurance.
That scenario puts the Internal Revenue Service at the center of the debate, renewing questions about whether the agency is capable of policing the health care decisions of millions of people in the United States while also collecting the taxes needed to run the federal government.

Loss of Churches in Louisiana

When devastating hurricanes struck the Gulf Coast , even houses of worship were not spared.    
 A local television station interviewed a black woman from New Orleans and asked how the loss of churches in the area had affected their lives.        
Without hesitation, the woman replied, "I don't know 'bout all those other people, but we ain't gone to Churches in years. We gets our chicken from Popeye's."

Mom ruins robbery

BRANDON, MS (WLBT) -
A Brandon man is in jail after a failed robbery attempt, and he has his mother to thank.
Twenty-two-year-old Roy Mitchell's mother stopped him during the middle of his crime by taking away the weapon he had aimed at the clerk. It was all caught on video.
It was around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday when Mitchell entered D's 1 Stop convenience store on Highway 80 in Brandon.
Wednesday, store owner Mandeep Singh provided the surveillance video of the incident to WLBT News.
On the video, Mitchell can be seen quickly grabbing some nacho cheese Doritos and throwing them on the counter.
He then handed the clerk $2 to pay for his snack, but then things changed dramatically.
As the clerk went to get change from the cash register, Mitchell pulled a gun out of his waistband.
He then pointed the gun directly at the clerk and demanded all the money in the drawer.
Then, Mitchell's mother walks up, grabs the gun and orders him out of the store. Mitchell obeyed and left the store with the bag of chips and no cash.
Police say Mitchell's mother tried to explain to the clerk the gun wasn't real and begged the clerk not to call the law.
Mitchell and his mother left the scene in a red Oldsmobile. The clerk called the police.
A short time later the vehicle was stopped by Pelahatchie police. Officers found a plastic gun in the vehicle that was made to look like the real thing.
Mitchell is facing attempted armed robbery charges.

She should be shot. Twice.

-- Prosecutors say a 70-year-old Southern California woman has been ordered to stand trial for trying to cut off her husband's penis with industrial scissors.
Riverside County district attorney's spokesman John Hall says after a brief hearing Friday where the victim was the only witness for either side, a judge ordered Virginia Valdez to be tried on felony counts of assault with a deadly weapon and inflicting corporal injury on a spouse. With possible sentencing enhancements she could get nine years in prison.
Valdez has pleaded not guilty.
Palm Springs police said on Dec. 3, Valdez was touching her 62-year-old husband sexually then got up, went to the bathroom, returned with scissors and began cutting him in the groin.
He drove to the hospital, where he was given stitches and released.

Air Force drones tracking civilian vehicles for practice

"It took a few seconds to figure out exactly what we were looking at. A white S.U.V. traveling along a highway adjacent to the base came into the cross hairs in the center of the screen and was tracked as it headed south along the desert road. When the S.U.V. drove out of the picture, the drone began following another car.
“Wait, you guys practice tracking enemies by using civilian cars?” a reporter asked. One Air Force officer responded that this was only a training mission, and then the group was quickly hustled out of the room."

A newly leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.
Army Manual Outlines Plan To Kill Rioters, Demonstrators In America New Orleans Katrina military police patrol Canal St. 090505 by AP
The document (PDF), which is dated 2006 and was used for a self-learning course at the U.S. Army Military Police School at Fort McClellan, makes it clear that the operations described in the manual apply to both “CONUS and OCONUS,” meaning inside the Continental United States and outside the Continental United States.
The document outlines how military assets will be used to “help local and state authorities to restore and maintain law and order” in the event of mass riots, civil unrest or a declaration of martial law.
The primary function of military assets will be focused around, “breaking up unauthorized gatherings and by patrolling the disturbance area to prevent the commission of lawless acts,” states the document, adding, “during operations to restore order, military forces may present a show of force, establish roadblocks, break up crowds, employ crowd control agents, patrol, serve as security forces or reserves, and perform other operations as required.”
The manual also describes how prisoners will be processed through temporary internment camps under the guidance of U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 Internment/Resettlement Operations, which as we reported earlier this year, outlines how internees would be “re-educated” into developing an “appreciation of U.S. policies” while detained in prison camps inside the United States.

Glad to see somebody took the initiative here

Several electronic road construction signs around Anchorage were hacked late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning, according to the state Department of Transportation.


Signs that normally display closure and detour information, like the one on Minnesota Drive near 100th Avenue, were changed to read “Impeach Obama.” That particular sign wasn’t fixed until sometime between 6 a.m. and 8 a.m. Thursday.
It happened because DOT says it doesn’t lock the boxes on the signs that hold the message control pad.
The Alaska DOT was not happy:
“I’m sure somebody thought it was a pretty funny joke but we try to convey a lot of important information with these signs,” said Tim Croghan, a regional construction engineer for DOT.
What could be more “important information”?

Bay Area News Group photographer Laura Oda was relieved of two cameras, her laptop and a camera bag on Monday, the sixth robbery of a journalist in Oakland, Calif., in as many weeks.
Kristin J. Bender writes: “News crews have been robbed more times in the past six weeks than in recent history, sounding an alarm of caution among the Bay Area press.”
Two photographers were robbed at the same site on June 18, Bender writes, and lists three other robberies of journalists in Oakland and one in San Francisco. One of the robberies was pretty brazen:
At 9:45 p.m. last Thursday, a KTVU Channel 2 news crew doing a live shoot in the 5700 block of Redwood Road in the Oakland hills was robbed. The reporter was sitting in the front of the news van when a suspect opened the door, reached in and stole her laptop and a briefcase off her lap. Police said a suspect simulated a gun in his waistband and stole the cameraman’s equipment, which was near the van.
“Oakland is a dangerous place,” San Francisco Bay Area Press Photographers Association President Paul Sakuma told Bender.

On this Day in History.....

It was right about this time one year ago today that I came rolling in from the Package Store with three 12-packs of Augie Busch's finest and a big ol' bag of spicy porkrinds, getting ready to tie one on and get roarin' fucked up. I can remember the date well because it was also the occasion of the last beer that I've drank. Drinking the actual beer I don't remember too well, if at all, but I haven't drank since that night. Or morning. Whatever.
So yeah, I haven't taken a lovely, cool, refreshing, sparkling drink in a motherfucking year.
Coincidentally, Lisa moved in one year ago tomorrow. Kinda funny how that worked out, huh?

A 100% ground bacon burger. Well, fuck me silly.....

California burger chain Slater's 50/50 may be bringing home the bacon, now that its menu features a burger made of 100 percent ground bacon. Not to gild the lily, but the Fourth of July-inspired The 'Merica burger comes topped with a slice of thick-cut bacon, bacon island dressing, and bacon flavored cheddar cheese. It's only nonbacon topping is an impressive sunny-side-up egg.
Foodbeast notes that Slater's 50/50 has already made a name for itself by offering its flagship burger made of half ground beef and half ground bacon. Sadly, the three Slater's stores will only be offering the all-bacon burger through the end of July.
The month-long feature comes on the heels of previous burgers-of-the-month, including a Pulled Pork Burger and a Chili Cheese Frito Burger.
And if the bacon burger isn't enough for you, Slater's offers several other bacon-themed novelties, including a bacon brownie and the Bakon Mary, a twist on the Bloody Mary cocktail featuring bacon-infused vodka, a rim of bacon salt and a slice of thick-cut bacon as garnish.

Why would they destroy a security camera?

Long Beach Police Investigate Excessive Force in Pot-Shop Raid


A raid on a marijuana dispensary in Long Beach was caught on video showing officers smashing surveillance cameras and stepping on a suspect, moves that prompted accusations against the officers of excessive force.

The two-minute-long video opens to show a man surrendering to police, three of whom surround him while two put him in handcuffs.
One of the officers is seen stepping on volunteer employee Dorian Brooks' back with both feet before stepping on his neck, with what Brooks described as 300 pounds of pressure.
The video, which was being recorded at an off-site location, then cuts to an officer pointing at the recording camera before another looks up and smashes the lens.
"They noticed there was a camera that was on the wall right above my head, so they proceeded to smash it with a metal rod," said Brooks, adding that the camera shattered on him. "I wasn't able to protect myeslf because my hands were cuffed."

"But our borders are more secure than ever....."

(Reuters) - A father and son face federal charges after investigators say they opened fire and wounded a U.S. immigration special agent near the U.S.-Mexico border during an early-morning chase, federal officials said Thursday.
The father and son, along with an unidentified minor, are accused of opening fire and chasing after Kelton Harrison, an Immigration Customs Enforcement special agent working a narcotics investigation before dawn on Tuesday in Hargill, Texas, a community of about 900 residents about 30 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border, Kenneth Magidson, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Texas, said in a statement.
ICE agents arrested Pedro Alvarado, 41, and his son, Arnoldo Alvarado, 18, several hours after Harrison abandoned his vehicle after suffering a gunshot wound to his back, Magidson said.
Harrison underwent surgery on the gunshot wound on Tuesday and is expected to recover, an ICE spokeswoman said.

Asked point blank if the wildfires were caused by climate change, Napolitano responded, “It could be a lot of different things.”

White only Christian conference protested

Hey, I don't go for any of that racist bullshit myself but why is it when there's a Black or hispanic only event dignitaries get invited but advertise it as White only and outrage ensues?
Of course the Klan and other white supremist bullshit didn't help, but what the fuck, nobody comes down on the New Black Panthers over their ridiculous racist hate speech, not even the Justice Department.

*****

A controversial pastor's conference welcoming only "white Christians" is underway in Lamar County, Ala., upsetting residents of the nearby town of Winfield in the western part of the state.
Christian Identity Ministries is holding a three-day conference for so-called "white Christians" who contend they have been treated unfairly, the Rev. Mel Lewis told local TV station WSFA. Lewis, the organizer and keynote speaker, says they have the right, like any other Americans, to worship how they wish.
Ku Klux Klan flags and white supremacy slogans surround the conference, which will conclude with a cross being set on fire Friday night. Organizers say it's not a cross-burning, but rather sacred Christian cross lighting.
"We are not breaking any laws. We're not violating any ordinances. We're bringing the Word of God to people who want it, obviously, or they wouldn't be here," Lewis told the TV station.
Lewis said of the conference-goers: "They are part of the chosen race."
The mayor of nearby Winfield said residents are upset, and the event does not represent their town in any way.
"Business people are upset. The city is upset. The city of Winfield does not condone this," Winfield Mayor Wayne Silas told another local TV station, WECT.
"It's surprising to see something like that in our town," said Tyler Cantrell. "I know it's been here in the past."
Organizers say their ministry is not a hate group and that although there is a strong KKK presence, the Klan did not sponsor the event.

Note to self: Find another excuse.

There's been the Twinkie defense, the Zoloft defense, the PMS defense and the Ambien defense.
Kenneth Sands - convicted July 3 of groping women and teenage girls - tried and failed to create legal precedence with the caffeine defense.
Sands attributed his behavior to "an excessive intake of caffeine," ABC News Seattle affiliateKOMOnews.com reported.
Sands, 52, is a bus driver for the Rainier School District. He was convicted of molesting three teenage high school girls and two women during and after a volleyball game on Oct. 18, 2011.

The first groping incident occurred while Sands was a spectator at the game when he "allegedly touched a 46-year-old woman's breasts multiple times and later tried to grab her butt as she was trying to get away from him," KOMO reported and a representative from the Lewis County Washington Sheriff's Office confirmed.
Following the game, Sands then grabbed two teenage girls outside of a school bus and proceeded to follow the volleyball players onto the bus, according to court documents. Sands touched another female student in an inappropriate manner before "the bus driver kicked him off of the bus," according to the sheriff's office.
Sands insists his behavior was a result of caffeine and that this incident is not representative of his normal behavior.
Dr. Martin Blinder, a psychiatrist known for presenting the "Twinkie defense" in the 1979 trial of San Francisco Supervisor Dan White, told ABC News that he has never heard of caffeine induced groping.
Blinder contrasted the Twinkie defense with the caffeine defense. The Twinkie defense was successfuly used to help White avoid first-degree murder conviction for the 1978 assassination of San Francisco City Supervisor Harvey Milk and Mayor George Moscone. White's attorneys argued he had diminished capacity because of depression. He was convicted of manslaughter instead.
"When someone gets depressed and abandons his diet, eats junk food, and if you are already on a downward spiral, I can tell you that eating junk food is not therapeutic," Blinder said. "If you ever read the label on a Twinkie, only two of the ingredients sound like food products."
But caffeine is made out of coffee beans, all natural and free of artificial ingredients, he said.
"We have no evidence that coffee is harmful. In fact, there is some evidence that drinking it in one's old age can assist in some Alzheimer's cases," Blinder said.
Blinder admitted that if someone is trying to quit coffee cold turkey that some withdrawal symptoms have taken affect in the form of cravings, headaches and restlessness. "But going out and molesting women is not one of those symptoms," says Blinder.
Sands was unable to be reached for a comment. He has been sentenced to 30 days for each of the five counts of fourth-degree assault, totaling five months in jail.

Another History Lesson

Rabble in Arms – The Battlefields for Independence

The battles for American independence began more than a year before the historic vote of the Colonies to declare independence from Britain. The British Army, along with their Navy and Marines had occupied Boston since 1768. The following are the battles fought before and after America actually had an official Army, rather than the magnificent “rabble” who accomplished so much, with so little. Below is the flavor of some of the most important battlefields.

Functional yet stylish

And in the spirit of this great Day, I have continued decorating my new office.
I had been keeping my Git Kit in the bedroom on my side of the bed and while CharlieGodammit's mistress hasn't said anything about it fucking up the decor, she's certainly wore some teeth out from gritting them every time I added a new piece of gear.
Hey, that in itself was a victory for her - I used to keep it in the living room before she moved in, and it fit in very well with the decor at that time.

So today I was looking at my treasure chest (that's where I keep my divorce papers from my marriage to the Evil One) and thinking it needed something and then I immediately forgot about it as I am prone to do, then wandered into the bedroom for God only knows what and saw my pile of gear in the corner. I immediately forgot about it again until I came in and sat down, then my mind put 2 & 2 together and amazingly I kept on track long enough this time to come up with this:


Git Kit with radio and night vision gear on the right, about a ton of ammo and rope on the left with my Battle Flag under it, all ready to go at a moment's notice.
Now I just gotta figure out what to do with that big-ass blank spot on the wall above it. Maybe a beaver shot or something......

But for Men like him.....

Captain Parker was part of a well respected Lexington family. At various times his father, Josiah served as Lexington Town Clerk, Assessor and even a Selectman. Parker himself was a farmer, mechanic and life long resident of Lexington…born on Spring Street. He was “a stout, large framed man of medium height”. Parker was no stranger to military battle. Earlier in his life he fought in the French and Indian War at Louisbourg and Quebec and was a member of Roger’s Rangers. At the age of 26 he married Lydia Moore also of Lexington.
On the morning of April 19, 1775 Captain John Parker was 46 years old as he stood beside 76 other colonists and opposed 700 British Regulars. At the time he was terminally sick with tuberculosis. His illness forced him to bed early the night before (April 18, 1975). It was around 1:00AM when a messenger arrived informing him that the Regulars were marching to Concord. Parker and his men assembled on the Lexington Green and around 5:30AM three advance companies of British Regulars burst on the scene commanded by Major Pitcairn.

Many, many times historians have debated how the events unfolded that morning, but several things are indisputable…
Parker lined his men in two ranks, a proud stance for freedom challenging the world’s most dominant superpower… and the captain and his brave men weren’t looking for fight that morning, but they weren’t going to back down if one came …and it did.
Here is the text of Captain John Parker’s actual deposition given several days after the battle:

Lexington, April 25, 1775.
I, John Parker, of lawful age, and commander of the Militia in Lexington, do testify and declare, that on the nineteenth instant, in the morning, about one of the clock, being informed that there were a number of Regular Officers riding up and down the road, stopping and insulting people as they passed the road, and was also informed that a number of Regular Troops were on their march from Boston, in order to take the
Province Stores at Concord, ordered our Militia to meet on the common in said
Lexington, to consult what to do, and concluded not to be discovered, nor meddle or
make with said Regular Troops (if they should approach) unless they should insult us;
and upon their sudden approach, I immediately ordered our Militia to disperse and not to fire. Immediately said Troops made their appearance, and rushed furiously, fired upon and killed eight of our party, without receiving any provocation therefor from us.


John Parker
Captain John Parker didn’t live long enough to see the United States officially declare its independence. He died of Tuberculosis a mere five months after the battle of Lexington and Concord…but his noble actions on April 19, 1775, so perfectly represented by that statue on the Lexington Green, sounded a declaration of freedom heard throughout the world.
SOURCE


*****

Read that last paragraph again. The man was dying of tuberculosis. a slow, lingering death with no hope of recovery. He had absolutely nothing to gain for his glorious deeds that fine spring day, he could've stayed in his home and dealt with his suffering and misery as best as he could, but he believed so fervently in his Cause and his Beliefs that he rose and stood with his fellow Patriots at their line in the sand.
It's Men like Captain John Parker that are the reason for our celebration today.

For a photo of his deposition of the battle in his own hand, go HERE. It is legible when magnified.

Apparently self reliance is not a virtue to your government

One in seven Americans are on food stamps, but the government is pushing to enroll more — in many instances working to overcome Americans’ “pride,” self-reliance or failure to see a need.
“Our common goal is to increase participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program,” the United States Department of Agriculture explains on its “Outreach Toolkits” page. “Our purpose is to ensure that those going through difficult times can feed their families healthy, nutritious food. By working as a team, we can accomplish these goals.”
The USDA has adopted a range of strategies and programs designed to bring more people to SNAP, including taking on “pride.” A 2011 Hunger Champions Award document reveals that local assistance offices have been rewarded for “counteracting” pride and pushing more people to sign up for benefits.

I did get a glimmer of hope today that some of my old wolfdog is still around - I was kicking back in my Camouflaged Bass Pro Easy Chair and he was coming back from sucking Lisa's ass and all of a sudden attacked me with no warning, fucking snapping and snarling just like the old days before the woman moved in. We rough-housed for a good 5 minutes or so until we were both wore out and I'll be damned when he wandered back over to Lisa he was munching on one of the DTs he managed to steal during the melee.

He's still wanting to 'Serve and Protect'?

A suspended Florida police officer—who's been fired six times over the years for alleged misconduct, only to be reinstated—says he's the victim of a "witch hunt" and wants to go back to work, even though he's being paid $60,000 a year to stay home.
Since becoming an officer in 1990, Sgt. German Bosque of the Opa-locka Police Department "has been disciplined, suspended, fined and sent home with pay more than any officer in the state," according to the Miami Herald.
Bosque—who has been accused of "cracking the head of a handcuffed suspect, beating juveniles, hiding drugs in his police car, stealing from suspects, defying direct orders and lying and falsifying police reports"—was suspended with pay in May after he allowed a newspaper reporter to ride along in his patrol car without permission. (During the ride-along, Bosque told the reporter, "I'm an excellent police officer, but I break the rules.")
According to his lawyer, Bosque wants to return to duty "rather than sleeping late and watching telenovelas and 'Cops' reruns."
In 1990, he was tossed out of the Miami-Dade Police Academy after being arrested for impersonating a police officer, auto theft and possession of a firearm. In 1992, after graduating from the Polk County Police Academy, he was arrested for driving with a suspended license.
"Back then I was a big hot dog," Bosque told Herald. He became a full-time officer in Opa-locka in 1993.
In 1994, four people in a stolen car Bosque was following were killed in a high-speed chase that crashed outside Opa-locka. "Questions were raised about whether he was pursuing the vehicle against department policy," the paper said. In 1998, he was suspended twice for unauthorized police pursuits. The same year, Bosque called in sick with "food poisoning." He was on vacation in Cancun, Mexico.
More from the Herald's profile, "The South Florida cop who won't stay fired":
It seemed, in spite of all his past misconduct, there was nothing Bosque could do to lose his badge.
Opa-locka inexplicably dropped the ball on almost all the internal affairs complaints on Bosque. He was fired after police found cocaine in his police vehicle, but appealed and managed to keep his police certification and his job.
In February 2008, Bosque's questionable behavior took another turn when the state attorney's office began noticing that key drug evidence in some of his cases was missing. His police car was inspected, and investigators found an empty Smirnoff vodka bottle, a small bag of cocaine, crack pipes, Florida license plates, a pile of driver's licenses he had seized, along with a stack of arrest reports he had never turned in. But the state attorney declined to prosecute, saying there was no evidence of criminal intent, and Bosque was back out on the street.
As the Herald noted, the Opa-locka Police Department has a long history of corruption. Its current chief, Cheryl Cason, tested positive for cocaine and was placed on probation in 1995. In 2011, Cason was suspended after "failing to tell the city that she had had a crash with her city-owned car."
Cason called Bosque a "time bomb that has now exploded."
- Yahoonews!

Fuck, even I knew that......

(FOX Business) — IRS officials on background tell FOX Business the U.S. Supreme Court ruling on health reform gives the IRS even more powers than previously understood.
The IRS now gets to know about a small business’s entire payroll, the level of their insurance coverage — and it gets to know the income of not just the primary breadwinner in your house, but your entire family’s income, in order to assess/collect the mandated tax.
Plus, it gets to share your personal info with all sorts of government agencies, insurance companies and employers.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. “We expect even more lien and levy powers,” an IRS official says. Even the Taxpayer Advocate is deeply concerned.
The IRS army will inexorably increase in size, too. The IRS will now add new agents to hunt down tax cheats, as it has been budgeted to spend $303.5 million building a new system, erected on the back of its old system, to oversee the effects of the health law, including making sure people get the new tax credits they deserve under the law.

Whoa. I'm surprised.

(The Washington Times) — Federal immigration authorities have begun granting tentative legal status to illegal immigrants under President Obama’s deportation halt — and in some cases are even ignoring the administration’s eligibility rules to stop deportations for those who shouldn’t qualify, according to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee.
Rep. Lamar Smith, Texas Republican, said he’s learned some illegal immigrants who have been in the U.S. less than five years have had their deportations canceled, even though Mr. Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Janet A. Napolitano had listed the five-year mark as one of their criteria.
Mr. Smith also obtained documents laying out how U.S. Customs and Immigration Enforcement (ICE) officers should actively search for illegal immigrants who are “apparently eligible” to have their cases dropped. Those illegal immigrants then would be granted tentative status.

Well, hell......

Goddammit, here I am on vacation with nothing planned and not much being done, right? Kicking back, doing whatever the fuck I want and generally just enjoying life.

Okay, a little background on this rant. Lisa's parents stayed with us for about a month on their annual vacation, leaving about a month ago. Great houseguests and we got along fine but still, a month..... but their house was on the market and they would be back here shortly anyways. So they leave on a Wednesday and on Friday Lisa's cousin and her family showed up for a week. It wasn't as bad as it sounds because they were whole new personalities and it turns out that we all share the same political leanings. A very good visit and hope they come again.
So they left and me and Lisa looked at each other and swore no more houseguests for a few months and then we locked the doors, drew the curtains and hid out for a week.
You are officially caught up.

So anyways, Lisa's folk's house sold back in Tennessee and so for the past week or so my old lady's been busy house shopping for her mom. Today I was bored and went with her, serving as driver, photographer and evidently coffee bitch. We fired off the pictures to her folks, told them what we thought of the houses and commenced to kicking back, Lisa in the tub and me in my Camouflaged Bass Pro Easy Chair. Pretty soon I heard something from the bathroom like somebody was drowning so I finished the article I was reading real quick and when back to see what was up. Coming down the hallway I could hear she was on the phone and just as I rounded the corner I heard "......Tomorrow at 12:10. Delta. What's your flight number, Mom?"
Aw Hell no.....
"You need to go to Sacramento tomorrow to pick up my mother" is what I'm hearing as I finally force myself into the bathrooom.
"Aw Hell no..... fuck that....." and then I got The Look.

So here I am, on vacation with no motherfucking plans (and Lisa knows that), and my mother-in-law is going to be here for a couple of weeks. I've got 6 days with no place to escape to and I gotta be on my best behavior while she's here. No more dick prints on the patio sliding glass door or the hallway mirrors, can't wander in naked for my morning coffee rubbing my nuts, can't swear, can't do nothing, man.
Not only that, but she taught Lisa The Look. Every one of you married motherfuckers out there know exactly what I'm talking about. Now I'm gonna have the two of them  hammering me with The Look everytime I turn around.
I am so fucked.......

Just when you think you've seen 'em all.......

But wait, give me a couple of days and I'll come up with something to beat this:

My office pictured in the post below

Yeah, so that's my new office in the post below. I figured I'd better get some pictures before I thoroughly fucking trash it by making it comfortable for me, you know, bandoleers of ammo lying all over the place, disassembled firearms on top of my treasure chest up against the wall and all my books piled next to my chair.
We've been here about six months and the room's been a storage room twice and a guest bedroom once. My fault I reckon, I kept putting off hauling the "storage" out to one of the Justice Sheds and hauling my shit back in. Put it off for six months, took me about 30 minutes once I put my mind to it..... Shit, I still got my magic touch. I used to be better at fucking off when I was in the army, but you know, you get older and certain skills begin to slip.
Anyways.
Actually it took me a couple of days because of dealing with different things, but once I get my spare magazines and other assorted weaponry postioned properly, I'll be set.
I mean I got everything else already, my III flag right up front, Pop's old chair with back heater and vibrating seat (heh heh heh), my political references as well as my survival, hunting, shooting, reloading and especially my history books. I got me a little HD TV angled away from the door so I can discreetly watch shit I ain't supposed to watch. My fishing rods, guns and motherfucking Git Kit are all within reach. I got a clear field of fire of the entire backyard from there.
But the main thing is the Parchment above my chair. Without that, the room don't mean a damned thing. Hel,l without that Parchment that room wouldn't exist, wouldn't have a reason to.

We all have a Brian in our life

A man walked out to the street and hailed a taxi just going by. He got into the taxi and the cabbie said "Perfect timing. You're just like Brian!" Passenger: "Who?"

Cabbie: "Brian Sullivan. He's a guy who did everything right all the time. Like my coming along when you needed a cab, things happen like that to Brian Sullivan, every single time". Passenger: "There are always a few clouds over everybody".

Cabbie: "Not Brian Sullivan. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the Grand Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like an opera baritone and danced like a Broadway star and you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy!" Passenger: "Sounds like he was something really special".

Cabbie: "There's more. He had a memory like a computer. He remembered everybody's birthday. He knew all about wine, which foods to order and which fork to eat them with. He could fix anything. Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Brian Sullivan, he could do everything right". Passenger: "Wow. Some guy then".

Cabbie: "He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Brian, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back even if she was in the wrong and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Brian Sullivan".

Passenger: "An amazing fellow. How did you meet him?" Cabbie: "Well, I never actually met Brian. He died. I'm married to his fucking widow..."

Hey, we all know somebody that has Alzheimer's


A SIMPLE infection early in life could trigger Alzheimer’s, scientists claim.
Research has discovered that chronic inflammation leaves the brain vulnerable to developing the disease.

The breakthrough could lead to new treatments and even to ways of stopping Alzheimer’s before it develops.

Previously, inflammation seen in the brains of Alzheimer’s sufferers was thought to be a side effect of the disease.

The new findings suggest that it might be a primary cause, raising the possibility of fighting Alzheimer’s with common anti-inflammatory drugs. 


                                   

Gotta protect his Boy, ya know?

U.S. Secret Service officers shut down a student-led protest calling for President Obama to fire Attorney General Eric Holder this morning, according to a report from in front of the White House.
After discovering a “suspicious package,” the Secret Service ended the protest. “Several agents seemed hostile to our march and seemed anxious for us to leave the area,” Maurice Lewis, a University of California student, told Campus Reform. “The discover[y of] the ‘unidentified package’ came just as the protest began gain traction.”

*****

Yeah. They discovered the package just as the protest was picking up steam. Imagine that.

Mmmm Hmmm, Milfy Monday already Boys.

Tula ammo

Does anybody have any experience or first hand knowledge of Tula ammo? I've been seeing some great deals on 45 and 5.56, but it seems like I was hearing some bad things about them in the past. Has their QC problems been handled or did I just have a bad recollection?

You can tell Lisa made the tea

I went to the icebox for a fresh glass of tea and started laughing, then took the jug to Lisa who started giggling too.
I hope she wasn't giving me a subtle hint.....

DHS emasculates the Border Patrol even further

(Fox News) — Border Patrol agents in Arizona are blasting their bosses for telling them, along with all other Department of Homeland Security employees, to run and hide if they encounter an “active shooter.”
It’s one thing to tell civilian employees to cower under a desk if a gunman starts spraying fire in a confined area, say members of Tucson Local 2544/National Border Patrol Council, but to give armed law enforcement professionals the same advice is downright insulting. The instructions from DHS come in the form of pamphlets and a mandatory computer tutorial.
“We are now taught in an ‘Active Shooter’ course that if we encounter a shooter in a public place we are to ‘run away’ and ‘hide’” union leader Brandon Judd wrote on the website of 3,300-member union local. “If we are cornered by such a shooter we are to (only as a last resort) become ‘aggressive’ and ‘throw things’ at him or her. We are then advised to ‘call law enforcement’ and wait for their arrival (presumably, while more innocent victims are slaughtered).” [...]
But members of Local 2544 say they are obligated to protect the public in such a situation, whether they are on duty or not. Given the instructions, some wonder if they would be disciplined for taking down a gunman in a situation like the Fort Hood shooting or the January, 2011 case in Casa Adobes, in which a deranged gunmen shot 19 people, including Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. Six people were killed.
“It is always comforting to know that for those of us who carry a weapon when we are off-duty, if we should encounter such a situation, stop a shooter and save countless lives, we can look forward to being disciplined or fired by the Border Patrol because we should have run away to hide and then maybe thrown objects at the deranged killer instead of taking action and stopping him with a firearm,” the union local’s website says.

Yeah, she's pissed.
