Oberlin College choir brilliantly responds to the Christina Sommers controversy

This brilliant response to Christian Sommers by the Oberlin College choir is a "must see". It is a true shame that it has come to things like this actually having to be done to push back against the march of the "special snowflakes" that take up space at [so called] institutions of higher education.

If there were any REAL feminists left...

If there were any REAL feminists left they would be fighting THIS instead of fighting things like the [false] collage rape culture, the mythical wage gap, the [collapsed] patriarchy, and other miscellaneous "special snowflake", macro-aggression grievance industry causes du jour.

Sure fighting Islamic sex slavery does not have the "zing" of a good "slut walk" but highlighting it and working to eradicate it would affect the lives of countless women and teenage girls that are being forced into sex slavery today.

Some of the "interesting" items in this fatwa (#64, dated 1/29/2015) on the subject includes such notable items as:

  • One of on the graces which Allah has bestowed upon the State of Caliphate is the conquest of large surface areas of the country and one of the inevitable consequences of the jihad of establishment is that women and children of infidels will become captives of Muslims. Consequently, it is necessary to clarity some rules pertaining to captured prisoners to avoid any violations in dealing with them

  • bans on a father and son having sex with the same female slave; and the owner of a mother and daughter having sex with both. Joint owners of a female captive are similarly enjoined from intercourse because she is viewed as "part of a joint ownership."

  • The owner of two sisters is not allowed to have intercourse with both of them rather he may only have intercourse with just one. the other sister is to be had by him if he were to relinquish ownership of the first sister by selling her, giving her away or releasing her.
  • If a father had intercourse with his female captive then give her away or sold her to his son, he is not longer permitted to have intercourse with her.

That is nice, they do have some rules. Oh well, never mind, you have another slut walk to plan...

Grooming the next generation of terrorists...

The next time one of your pro-Palestine friends defends the Palestinians as an oppressed peoples that just wants their own place, show them this:

Palestinian Doll Throwing Rocks

This is one of about 4000 toys that were seized from a shipment to the Palestinian authority. These toys were to be given to children.

Each toy has its face hidden by a keffiyah, with one arm raised and clutching a tiny toy rock. They hold banners in Palestinian colors proclaiming “Jerusalem is ours” and “Jerusalem we are coming.”

These rock throwing campaigns have already claimed lives and toys like this show the lengths the Palestine authority will go to indoctrinate, involve, and incite children to take part. It makes good propaganda when Israelis are forced to fight back against children which the Palestinians use for human shields and as solders in their war against Israel.

Follow the link. It also shows how the children are incited to do knife attacks upon Israelis.

Now this is how you "jump the shark"!

In response to the San Bernardino shooting / terrorist event, Geraldo Rivera (yes, that Geraldo Rivera) tweeted:

The key now is for us to be as outraged by San Bernadino massacre as we would be if Muslim extremists were doing the killing. This is terror

— Geraldo Rivera (@GeraldoRivera) December 2, 2015

Wow, just wow...

A muslim terrorist and a progressive walk into a bar... not a good way to start a joke, for numinous reasons but to hear progressives talk about muslim terrorists you would think it must be. This facebook post does a good job at highlighting the issue:

It must be incredibly frustrating as an Islamic terrorist not to have your views and motives taken seriously by the societies you terrorize, even after you have explicitly and repeatedly stated them. Even worse, those on the regressive left, in their endless capacity for masochism and self-loathing, have attempted to shift blame inwardly on themselves, denying the terrorists even the satisfaction of claiming responsibility.

It's like a bad Monty Python sketch:

"We did this because our holy texts exhort us to to do it."

"No you didn't."

"Wait, what? Yes we did..."

"No, this has nothing to do with religion. You guys are just using religion as a front for social and geopolitical reasons."

"WHAT!? Did you even read our official statement? We give explicit Quranic justification. This is jihad, a holy crusade against pagans, blasphemers, and disbelievers."

"No, this is definitely not a Muslim thing. You guys are not true Muslims, and you defame a great religion by saying so."

"Huh!? Who are you to tell us we're not true Muslims!? Islam is literally at the core of everything we do, and we have implemented the truest most literal and honest interpretation of its founding texts. It is our very reason for being."

"Nope. We created you. We installed a social and economic system that alienates and disenfranchises you, and that's why you did this. We're sorry."

"What? Why are you apologizing? We just slaughtered you mercilessly in the streets. We targeted unwitting civilians - disenfranchisement doesn't even enter into it!"

"Listen, it's our fault. We don't blame you for feeling unwelcome and lashing out."

"Seriously, stop taking credit for this! We worked really hard to pull this off, and we're not going to let you take it away from us."

"No, we nourished your extremism. We accept full blame."

"OMG, how many people do we have to kill around here to finally get our message across?"

That post is mocking but it is also not very far from the truth of the thing. Muslims HAVE stated that they have, are, and will continue to do terrorism against any and all and by their very actions, they prove it on an ongoing basis but progressives here in America and Europe continue to blindly say "No, that incident over there does not mean anything. It is isolated." When it next happens it is "Nope, not a trend. Isolated." and again "Workplace violence. Not an indication of larger issues." and yet again "Small isolated group, Not part of anything that we should take notice of!"

Let ONE Christian group (and a demonstrable out-liner group at that) shout at gay men and suddenly that one incident is PROOF POSITIVE that all Christians are racists and homophobes.

Conservatives point out the fact that nearly ALL terrorist acts perpetrated over the last couple of decades have been perpetrated by one specific, identifiable group of individuals that all share a very limited set of common traits and Conservatives are the problem FOR NOTICING what everyone else is too afraid to say. Sorry but the truth is, if you are an 18 to 35 year old male that practices Islam, you are much more likely to be involved in terrorism than the general population. Much more likely than your average Christian male. Astronomically more likely than your average Amish male. This is statistics. It is not racist to notice this but it is delusional to willfully ignore it, and it is the height of insanity to demand that the rest of us subscribe to your delusion.

Just this week there was a very large set of attacks in Paris by Muslim terrorists. The current U.S. President wants to invite thousands of Syrians into America. Really? Don't worry we are told. They will be vetted we are told. Are you kidding me?  This very same government that let 4 Americans die at one of our embassies and blamed it on a video. This very same government that ran an illegal arms program called "Fast and Furious" and tried to cover it up. This very same government that spent BILLIONS of dollars on a web site with a shopping cart for insurance and could NOT get it to work nor keep the information secure. This very same government that found ZERO malice or lawlessness in an IRS that demonstrably targeted conservative groups. This very same government that dumped toxic waste into a river and tried to cover it up. This very same government is competent enough to screen 10 thousand or more Syrian refugees to guarantee that not a single one of them is a terrorist. Really? REALLY?

Label me unconvinced and that is no joke.

First Lady speaks in Qatar and complains about America

"If we want to get Women into our classrooms."

Uh, last I checked, not only is it required that boys and GIRLS go to school but women out number men in Collage / Higher ED.

She is discussing the U.S. "history" of voting, education, and job opportunities for women while the area of the world she is speaking from still stones women for the crime of BEING raped, doesn't let most of them drive, won't let most of them out of the house without a male escort, and insists that many of them cover themselves from head to toe. She is talking about the U.S. past while ignoring the ME present-day.

Could she be any more trite? Any more shallow?

Women are still undergoing genital mutilation while she speaks about her past "hard life" of being told to "talk softly". Oh the HUMANITY! Well, at least she is finally "publicly" proud of her country (at least that is what she said some 7 years ago). It is SO oppressive being the First Lady....

Hillary, No one is against equal pay for equal work.

Especially not Republicans and as others have already pointed out numinous times (not that it stops Hillary! from making the claim nor many in the media from giving her a pass) equal pay is ALREADY the law.

Actually, that is not quite correct. There are some that are against equal pay for equal work. Here is a partial list:

I could go on but I think you are getting the point. Don't overlook the political party that all of these esteemed representatives of the people are affiliated with. Also noted in the various linked articles, the Republicans generally pay their female staffers AT LEAST as much as the male staffers if not more. The Republicans also have more women staff in more important roles within their organizations than the Democrats.

There does appear to be a "war on women" going on. It is just not by the suspects you are being told to look at...

Sitting US Senator would like men to "just shut the hell up" on some topics

So, at least one U.S. Senator thinks the 1st Amendment should not apply to men, conditionally, depending on what we wish to talk about. Surprise, surprise, the single biggest issue she would like all of us men to "shut the hell up about" is "women's health" which is [of course] liberal code for "abortion rights".

What she means is that women have the right to:

  1. decide whether to have sex or not (which of course, men can too)
  2. decide who to have sex with (which of course, men can too)
  3. decide if they are going to use birth control or not (which men can too)
  4. decide at any time during sex, to no longer want to have sex calling things to an immediate halt
  5. decide after having sex that if there is any regret it really was not "voluntary" sex and as such, she was hence assaulted even if this epiphany comes days, weeks, months, or even years later
  6. if the sex does result in a pregnancy, decide if she will keep the child, give the child up for adoption or that it is not at all a child but instead just a "clump of cells" and decide to have an abortion
  7. she can decide whether or not to inform the father of the pregnancy and/or birth and/or abortion
  8. regardless of any/all prior actions, she can inform the state of the father of the child (if she keeps it) and he can be held responsible for child support even if it is years after the birth of the child, to include back child support with options to have his wages garnished
    1. this even applies if he is underage and/or was raped resulted in the pregnancy
    2. this even applies if she "steals" his sperm out of the trash and uses it to become pregnant
    3. this even applies if she and he have a contract for him to be a sperm donor with no rights to the child
    4. this even applies if he is not the biological father of the child
None of this even begins to address the "child" which in this circumstance is only considered a child/baby if the mother chooses to view things that way, otherwise it is simply a "clump of cells" that can be disposed of any time the mother wishes (and according to Nancy Pelosi that includes until the "child" gets home).

According to McCaskill, men have no stake in this, no say, and no rights. Just Shut The Hell Up.

Just imagine the uproar and public crucifixion if a man of any note released a video telling women to just "shut the hell up" about curtain topics. Every nightly news program and every morning show would be part of the pile on. It would likely cost him his job and savage his reputation. He would be a public outcast. Think I am exaggerating? Remember what happened to that scientist that was involved in landing that probe on the comet? He was destroyed because of a shirt. A SHIRT.

But all of this is OK because "her body, her rules" and so all us men should just "shut the hell up". Again, this is not coming from just any old activist / feminist. This is coming from a sitting U.S. Senator.

IRS supports identity theft by illegals

This story was broke by a local news station. Local news doing the jobs that national news won't do...

Finally a case of voter fraud that Democrats might believe!

A non-citizen was arrested for illegally voting five different times over a span of 10 years in Texas.

But here is the "kicker" and why it might get some attention:

While she never voted in Tarrant County, she did vote in Dallas County a total of five times, voting the first time in the Republican Party primary in 2004 and lastly in the May 2014 Republican runoff.

Since it involves Republicans in some way, maybe Democrats will now take notice and admit that voter fraud happens.

I don't want Democrats to vote illegally. I don't want Republicans to vote illegally. I don't want ANYONE to vote illegally. Voting is a privilege and the integrity of the vote is of the utmost importance. Anyone that undermines the integrity of the process should be severely punished.

IRS and Lerner

In a letter to members of Congress, the Justice Department said that while investigators had found "mismanagement, poor judgment and institutional inertia," there was no evidence of a crime.

"We found no evidence that any IRS official acted based on political, discriminatory, corrupt or other inappropriate motives that would support a criminal prosecution," the letter stated.

Apparently, in the Obama America, you have to attack [or imply an attack] against liberal groups or minority groups. Does anyone think for one second that if 99% of the groups singled out for extra scrutiny were liberal groups or were minority groups, heads would not roll?

The lawless left just keeps pushing that line. Keep showing America that law no longer matters. That right versus wrong no longer matters. That everything is gray, no more clear bright line you do not cross - as long as you get the ends you want. Well, the left better hope that those on the right don't learn this lesson the left is so intent on teaching. The left is far less prepared to operate in a lawless world than those on the right. The left likes to yell and scream about the police state, not realizing that is all that is keeping the wolves at bay. When the common citizen decides that civility is gone, that law is gone, that justice is gone, that is when the lights go out and there are many, many on the right that have been planning for just such a thing and as a result are far better prepared than the OWS generation and their water carriers on the left...

Hillary and Benghazi

So Hillary testified before the Benghazi committee yesterday and here is a "standard" MSM headline on the results:

"Republican lawmakers sharply questioned Hillary Rodham Clinton on Thursday..."
"... seeking to build a case that the former secretary of state had been derelict in her duty to secure the American diplomatic mission in Benghazi...."

Absent from any of the MSM coverage, which (surprise, surprise) nearly unanimously found that Hillary did a great job standing up to those "nasty, evil, Republicans" is any mention of the fact (and that is real fact, not liberal "feels like it should be true" fact) that Hillary sent emails to her daughter and Egypt (we actually have the emails - Hillary failed to get them wiped) stating that the Benghazi attack was committed by terrorists. She later told the American people that it was all because of a video, which she KNEW was a lie. she stood over those coffins and lied to the relatives of those murdered and she lied to America.

If Hillary had an "R" after her name, every single MSM organ would be screaming about this 24/7 up to election night. Instead, we get crickets...

P.S. Don't you think she looks tired?

Yet more "But there is no such thing as voter fraud!"

The North Carolina State Board of Elections has found thousands of instances of voter fraud in the state:

  • 765 voters with an exact match of first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in N.C. and the other state in the 2012 general election.

  • 35,750 voters with the same first and last name and DOB were registered in N.C. and another state and voted in both states in the 2012 general election.

  • 155,692 voters with the same first and last name, DOB and last four digits of SSN were registered in N.C. and another state – and the latest date of registration or voter activity did not take place within N.C.
So we have proof of rampant fraud with people voting in two states, in the same election. We have examples of dead people voting. This is but one state and an initial assessment, not a detailed investigation.

But don't you worry one little bit cause voter fraud is a myth!

An economic case against the Bermuda Triangle

Had the TV on the other night (just to have it on), tuned to one of those secondary cable channels. They were running those "Ancient Aliens" shows. One of the episodes had to do with the Dragon's Triangle (Devil's Sea) which is the Pacific Ocean's equivalent of our Bermuda Triangle. One of the "experts" the show referenced was the author of a book about both places and the show repeatedly talked about all of the unexplained ship and plane disappearances that have occurred in both of those areas. That hundreds of ships and planes have been lost under "unexplainable" circumstances. About how compasses go "crazy" in these areas, and how they are the locations of numerous unexplainable phenomenon.

The case against these two areas being anything other than standard, normal patches of ocean can be made with two simple words: insurance premiums.

If either of these areas really was a location where there was a statistically significant greater loss of ships (with cargo) and airplanes, the bean counters that work for the insurance companies that insure cargo ships and planes (and their cargo) against loss would surely be aware of it. If there was a statistically significant greater risk of a vessel or plane (with cargo and crew) that transverse these areas "disappearing", the insurance premiums for vessels that travel those areas would be significantly higher than for those that avoid these areas. Cargo ships are quite expensive, the cargo they carry can be worth millions and millions of dollars. The shipping companies value their ships, their crews, their cargo, their reputations, and their profits enough that they would surely avoid these areas in an effort to save all of these things that they value. Reacting to these adverse incentives, the number of vessels traveling through these areas would greatly diminish in a rather short amount of time, reducing the "reported" losses until those losses returned to a more normal level and traffic would likely not return to these areas until the costs of using those routes (to include insurance premiums) returned to a more normal level.

What about the military? The military values their equipment and personnel at least as much as commercial businesses do and their equipment can not only be more expensive than commercial vessels they also contain more of and more valuable (as in expensive to train and maintain) crew members. If the military were to suffer increased losses of equipment and personnel in these waters, you can rest assured that either a) they would issue warnings, restricting traffic and travel in these areas and/or b) undertake extensive investigations to determine the cause of these increases in losses. Neither of these two events have taken place. There are no restrictions in traffic through these areas and there are not "endless" stories in the paper about lost military vessels and crews that defy explanation. With the adversarial press we have in the US (as well as England), if there was malfeasance of this sort going on, we would hear about it.

We don't even need to get into commercial air traffic (i.e. passenger airplanes / jet planes). Delta, USAir, Spirit, Jet Blue, etc. don't avoid these areas and overfly them daily. If there were an increased possibility of plane and passenger loss with the accompanying replacement costs and lawsuits, these would most definitely be "no fly" zones.

Economics doesn't lie...

The speech I wish the next Republican President would give...

Good evening citizen of the United States. Let me first say thank you for allowing me into your homes tonight. I truly believe that what I am about to share with you will benefit all Americans and the country and will be an important step in getting our country back on the right coarse for all citizens of this great land.

As citizens of these United States, we all have suffered under the burden of a farce, a fallacy, a Ponzi scheme of enormous size that has negatively impacted our economy for generations. This crime that has been perpetuated against us is known as the Social Security System. I am here to tell you that this crime will end. You will no longer be forced to contribute to a bankrupt and corrupt system that promises too much and delivers too little. If today's social security system were run by private businesses, the executives of those companies would be in jail! Why should this be permitted to continue simply because it is done to you by your Government instead of by a private company?

Despite what you may have heard and will likely hear starting tomorrow, the Social Security fund is broken and broke! There is NO money in it. It is true that at least for today and the near future, contributions to the Social Security fund exceed the monies paid out to recipients but and this is a big but, there is no money in the fund because your Government has been spending it for years to fund other programs. As dollars go into the fund, the Government takes them out and puts in I.O.U.s instead. Now if you trust your Government to be there tomorrow [and the day after] those I.O.U.s are nearly as good a cash BUT it is not cash and it is money that the Government will have to pay back, not at our leisure but when the demand for payments exceeds the amount coming in. This will likely mean deep cuts to other programs and / or tax increases and / or means testing to those that are and will collect Social Security. Again, over promised and under delivered. In addition, with the Government controlling this program, we tell you how much you have to put in, how long you have to wait to start receiving payments, and how those funds are managed. You are not children, you are adults. This is your money and you should own and control it.

My plan for the shuttering of the Social Security System is as follows:

First off, if you work and contribute to Social Security, December 31st of this year will be the last day that any FICA taxes are removed from your paycheck. Come January 1st of next year, those payroll funds are yours to keep. Your employer will also no longer have to match your FICA taxes after December 31st as well.

There are basically 4 groups of people in regard to Social Security; these groups are a) those already receiving payments (or will receive payments by January 1st of next year), b) those that are fully vested in Social Security but do not yet receive payments, c) those that are not yet fully vested but have made contributions, and d) those that have made no contributions yet (and won't have by December 31st of this year).

Let me allay any fears group (a) might have, if you currently receive Social Security payments, those payments will continue! Your payments will NOT stop. We made a commitment to you and the Government will keep that commitment. For you, nothing will change. Your schedule of benefits and payments will continue uninterrupted.

For those in group (d), those that have never been assessed any FICA taxes, if you still have not made any FICA contributions as of December 31st, nothing will change. You will not ever be forced to pay anything into the Social Security System. You will never be forced to contribute money into an underfunded, under performing system. I strongly encourage you to open an IRA account, if you don't already have one and start contributing money to it today. We will be making adjustments to the IRA rules to make it easier to contribute and to allow you to contribute much more. More details on these enhanced IRA rules will be coming in the weeks ahead.

To those in group (c), those that have paid FICA taxes but are not yet vested. You will not ever receive any Social Security payments. You are not vested in the system and will not ever be. It is strongly recommended that you start an IRA account as soon as possible if you don't already have one and start contributing to that account. As I stated earlier the rules for IRA accounts will be expanded giving you more freedom and options. If you already have an IRA, you are already setup for what I am about to tell you. If you do not have one, it is strongly recommended that you open one before the end of this year. Shortly after the new year, the Government will credit your IRA account with the sum of all of your FICA tax payments as well as those made on your behalf by your employer(s). Next year all FICA tax payments made by you or for you will be yours, in your IRA to own and manage. The Government should never have been taxing your wages at the point of a gun and making poor investment choices with your money. I apologize.

To those in group (b), those that are fully vested but have not yet started receiving payments (come January 1st), you have a choice to make. You can elect to be treated as part of group (c) or group (a). You can elect to have all of your [up to December 31st] FICA taxes as well as those of your employer(s) deposited in an IRA account of your choosing or you can elect to receive Social Security payments based on your December 31st (of this year) payment schedule. We will honor either decision you make.

We understand that there are some individuals that do not fall into any of these groups, we will be making a phone number and web site link available for you and anyone else that has questions about these changes, where you can get more information. In addition we will be posting the text of this speech, the details of the plan, and any additional updates or releases to a web site where everyone can access this for your self.

As soon as I am finish [if not already] you will hear from people that will tell you this is a bad plan and a bad idea. That I am wrong about the system being insolvent and that shutting it down is too hard, too complicate, and there is not enough time to make this all happen by year end.

To them I say no. You are the one that is wrong. You are the one that is insisting that we continue with a program that was designed and implemented wrong from the very start and that this very program when managed by individuals and companies, those people are arrested and charged with crimes. It ends now. We will honor our commitments to those that are already in the system and we have a plan for the orderly shutting down of this system and we will do it.

Others will say that we can not afford to do this. That we can not afford to pay back all of the FICA taxes collected to all those currently involved in the system. That the system will collapse under the weight of no new funds coming in. To them I say, you are partially correct. That is exactly why the Social Security system is also called a Ponzi scheme and that it is illegal when not done by the Government. We are already carrying the liabilities for repayment. The fund is already full of I.O.U.s. We will just be more honest in how that liability is carried on the Government ledger.

A partial privatization (15% of contributions) was suggested by a prior administration. It was misconscrewed and lied about in the press and by ideologs. We are now that much farther down the road to a Social Security collapse. Continuing down that road will only lead to harsh, rushed changes. This solution ends the problem once and for all and puts control of retirement back where is belongs, with individuals and with families. You are adults and the Government is not and should not be acting as your parent forcing you into an immoral system. Again, this ends now.

Thank you and good night.

Simplified version of Hillary email apology

"Sorry you are too stupid to understand that what I did was not wrong."

This is basically what she said. She did not admit that what she did was wrong [and it was SO wrong], she apologized that it was so "confusing" for us mere rubes to understand.

She mishandled classified information. She mixed personal correspondence and government correspondence on an unsecure, privately controlled server. Someone within her circle removed classified designations from emails that were on her server. Someone within her circle moved emails from the Government's classified network to her server. She had correspondence between herself and the dignitaries of other governments which would generally make these exchanges classified.

Her excuses? Didn't know, didn't realize, didn't understand, couldn't work more than one device so this had to be done to help her do her job, etc. If she is this intimidated by common technology and this uninformed of basic security policies, what in the world makes anyone think she is competent to be president?

So the reality is, she hopes we are [or at least enough of us are] too stupid or to partisan to care that what she did was incredibly stupid, exposed the Government to enormous data risks, and violated her oath, the rules of her job, and the directives from her President.

And of course, the MSM has not bothered to push back on that non-apology but why should they? They are nothing more than Democrat operatives with bylines...

The incredible case of Bruce Jenner

The case of Bruce Jenner is indeed incredible and I believe deserves some discussion. Bruce has opined in public that though he was born a male, he "feels" that he is really a female trapped in a male body. To address this disconnect between his feelings and his reality, Bruce has decided that despite all appearances to the contrary and despite what genetics might say, Bruce "knows" he is female and from now on, will be female. To this end, Bruce will take on all physical trappings of being female (or at least his vision of what a true female is - because as we all have been repeatedly told [and for which there is much truth] there is no true female standard, that women come in all shapes, sizes, and behaviors and the one and only metric that you can (could have) use to categorize someone as male or female is genetics - until now that is).

So what we really have here is a person that though they have male genes and plumbing, has decided to appear as female. If this was the extent of it, OK, fine. As an adult in America, you [at least as far as I am concerned and as far as I believe] should be free to do as you please as long as it does not infringe upon my rights to do the same. If you want to dress as a woman and act as a woman, have at it. Where this migrates from simple tolerance and possibly indulgence into infringement is when Bruce and many in society say that it is not enough that I accept that Bruce wants to be treated as a woman and that Bruce wants to appear as a woman. I must now accept a lie, i.e. that Bruce IS a woman. I must now incorporate this new truth into my being and treat this falseness as actual reality. If I chose instead of acceptance, to point out that a) Bruce was born a man, b) Bruce married a woman, c) Bruce procreated (the guy way), and d) Bruce has indicated (subject to change) that even though he is going to dress as women generally dresses and act as women generally acts, he will NOT exchange his natural, original male plumbing for a surgical construction of female plumbing. It is not as if Bruce lacks the resources to take this step of physical alteration, it is instead that he lacks the desire. That final point should be enough to lay waste to his claims.

To take this in another but related direction, let us say instead of Bruce announcing that he is now a woman, let us pose a hypothetical and Bruce announces that he has always been a Pitbull. Bruce FEELS that he has been a Pitbull for his entire life and will now live as a Pitbull. Bruce will stop wearing cloth and will be naked all the time. Bruce will get around on all fours. Bruce will eat and drink out of bowls on the floor. Bruce will relieve himself on the front lawn as a Pitbull does and will urinate on fire hydrants. Bruce will wear a collar, get walked, and demands to be issues a valid dog license from the city. As a dog, Bruce will mostly stop communicating in human speech and will mostly bark and growl. From now on Bruce will be known as Fido.

If this were to come to pass, would the media and society be lining up to celebrate the wonder that is Bruce [now Fido]? Or instead would there be a call for society to get this individual the help he is "owed"? Would we be admonished to play into his fantasy or to rally to his aid? Why is the response to this situation not appropriate to the reality that is Bruce?

Again, the issue is not that Bruce is now a transvestite. There are many, many people that like to dress and act as the opposite sex. As adults, they are free to indulge themselves in any way that they wish as long is it does not impact me and my rights. The issue here is that what we are being told to do is way beyond mere live and let live. This is into the realm of "all must accept my personal worldview as FACT and any dissension is heresy!" territory.

A somewhat similar case was in the news just this week. A boy that is now a high school senior has been dressing and acting as a girl for some time. The school (for the most part) has been accepting of this situation and the staff even arranged for this student to use their [faculty] unisex facilities in order to accommodate the student's situation. This year, this same student announced that this is no longer enough! This boy now demands that he be able to use the girl's locker room in order to get ready for and clean up after gym class. Everyone else be damned and any girls that find this situation concerning and objectionable are just bigots and should shut up and suck it up. The fact that many of these 16 and 17 year old girls are uncomfortable with a boy changing and showering in their locker room is of no consequence in this "brave new world". All must accept this boy's personal truth [that he is a she] as a natural fact and must act accordingly despite the penis between his legs.

Should this sort of situation simply be accepted as a new truth, a new fact or are we still grounded enough in actual reality to say no. No, your personal world view is NOT my fact. No, calling yourself a woman, or a dog, or a chair does not make it so. Not all reality is subjective and we will continue to indulge you but ONLY so far as indulging your whim doesn't impact my rights, my reality, and my safety.

Planned Parenthood, another video released - #waronwomen #waronbabies

The Center for Medical Progress released another Planned Parenthood video today. It once again features Holly O’Donnell, a former technician for StemExpress, one of the buyers of baby parts from Planned Parenthood. The video consists mostly of Miss O’Donnell describing an incident in which a baby’s heart was still beating, and she was instructed to cut through the baby’s face so that his brain–the baby was a boy–could be removed for sale. It is utterly appalling.

The Times tries to keep alive the fiction that there is some doubt about what the videos show. The videos do not “purport” to show PP officials negotiating prices for aborted babies’ body parts. They show PP officials negotiating prices for aborted babies’ body parts. They show a lot more than that, too.

Awful places to work...

I found this story via Instapundit and all I can say is it constantly astounds me how the NYT can stay in business if this is the quality of their "journalism".

I have since seen some "snippets" on the TV news as well. All of these stories seem to be going on and on about how AWFUL it is to work at Amazon.

What NONE of these stories seems to be discussing is that in America, you are actually free to leave a job if you don't like it. Yes! You can leave! Really! You are NOT physically chained to your desk! If the conditions at the place you currently work are so horrible and awful and degrading, you can actually quit!

The people that CHOOSE to work at Amazon do so for a combination of reasons, such as:

  1. The pay may be REALLY, REALLY good compared to what they could get somewhere else.
  2. The prestige associated with being able to say that yes, you work for Amazon.
  3. The job may be closer to their home than other options.
  4. The benefits may be better than what they could get elsewhere.
  5. The experience they are gaining may be more valuable in the future and better for their career.
  6. Lots more stuff that no one knows except for each individual person working there.
The point is, these people have CHOSEN to work there, They are not KEPT there. You know, free will and all that.

The other thing conspicuously missing from any of this coverage is (and let us say for arguments sake that they are "trapped" in these awful jobs) why? Why are they "stuck" there if it is so bad? Could it be that the economy [for the last 6 years] has been in the crapper? That more people have just dropped out of the work force due to an inability to locate a job than people have found jobs? That is the super big, super secret mystery! Why oh why are people taking jobs and keeping jobs they don't like? Maybe it could possibly be because the Obama economy has done just about anything and everything it can to crush job creation and drive up the cost of each job to the point that far fewer are being made available than could be?

Nah, that can't possibly be it cause if it was, the crack "journalists" in the MSM would be all over it just like they could not get enough of how awful the economy was, awful gas prices were, awful savings interest was, how stagnant wages were, when a Republican was in the White House (even when it wasn't so)...

City of Huntington Park, CA adds two illegal immigrants to its city commissions

Doing jobs that Americans won't do?

In addition to allowing illegal immigrants access to driver’s licenses and the state’s Obamacare exchange, now Huntington Park has given them an opportunity to actually govern legal American citizens.

These appointments, made by Councilman Jhonny Pineda, were achieved by getting around federal requirements for citizenship, as the young men are serving voluntarily and are not receiving any pay. However, not all Huntington Park residents are embracing the appointments.

Wow, just wow...

Apparently the #blacklivesmatter folks are a bit selective, based on current evidence and not all black lives actually matter so much.

For example:

  • Black lives matter when Bernie Sanders tries to talk.
  • Black lives don't matter so much when Hillary talks.

  • Black lives matter when black men (justified or not) are shot by the Police.
  • Black lives don't matter so much when blacks are killed by other blacks (which happens significantly more often - a black man is much more likely to be killed by another black person than by anyone else, police included).

  • Black lives matter when someone dares to point out that really "all lives matter".
  • Black lives don't matter so much when black women abort their unborn babies (which happens at a disproportionate rate as compared to other ethnic groups).

Another interesting point is that the black lives matters group gets funding from that old, european white guy George Soros. So maybe some of the concern about which specific black lives matter depends on which ones George thinks matter?

Based on this maybe they should change their hashtag to #blacklivessometimesmatter

Carly Fiorina - Abortion

Good answer and good turn-around!

It is refreshing to hear straight talk from someone running for office!

Planned Parenthood is trafficking in baby body parts, part 3

The video begins with an interview of Holly O’Donnell, a phlebotomist and former procurement tech for a company called StemExpress. According to O’Donnell, StemExpress partners with Planned Parenthood to harvest baby parts for scientific research and pays Planned Parenthood to use their facilities.

“I thought I was going to be drawing blood, not procuring tissue from aborted fetuses,” said O’Donnell.

What an amazing group of IDIOTS!

What an immense amount of ignorance and naivety! These people have no idea what is in the Iranian agreement because much of it is secret! The latest public facts make it clear that inspectors will have no ability to inspect. If the inspectors can't inspect, how is Iran prevented from developing an atomic bomb? Hint, they aren't!

If you want to see how big the idiocy in Hollywood has become (well actually always was), watch as much of this as you can stand:

I don't know which would be worst; if everyone involved in this video actually believes it or if they actually don't but would prefer Iran with a bomb than America doing what it takes to prevent it. Neither answer is good.

P.S. Oh and that crap at the end about "love their children too". It was crap when Sting did it about Russia and it is crap now about Iran. It is actually worst about Iran. The Russian people did and do love their children but the folks in charge of Russia at that time thought that they had a real chance to best America and as long as they and their own children survived, all is good. In the case of Iran, they actually believe that dying in the service of killing infidels (us) is a "very good thing" and it would actually make them martyrs so using that line in connection with Iran is extra, double stupid and shows how little of the world these clowns actually know.

Carly Fiorina - Climate Change

This woman can make a difference! She deserves a fair hearing and could (could not should, not is, but could) be just what we need.

P.S. Has Katie Couric ever asked such questions of any Democrat? Has she ever been an "interviewer" of Democrats? Best I can recollect, she simply lobs softballs at them.

Planned Parenthood is trafficking in baby body parts, part 2

Another Planned Parenthood "sting" video was released and it add additional weight to the scale though the usual suspects line up to try and provide cover. The video is "shocking" and when viewed objectively clearly demonstrates the callousness with which those involved with PP view that "clump of cells" within a women.

A person who cares only about reimbursement will clearly disclose the costs that must be covered and leave it at that. No negotiation is necessary. Either the buyer agrees to cover the costs, or he doesn’t. That’s it.

Exactly. This was clearly a negotiation. In the video (and the unedited copy) you can clearly hear Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s Medical Directors’ Council President, Dr. Mary Gatter discuss how she needs to check what other PP groups in her area are getting. Not that she needs to verify their "costs" to make the "specimens" (i.e. fetal tissue and organs) available.

Gatter also suggests modifying the abortion procedure to get more intact fetuses: “I wouldn’t object to asking Ian, who’s our surgeon who does the cases, to use an IPAS [manual vacuum aspirator] at that gestational age in order to increase the odds that he’s going to get an intact specimen.”

Gatter seems aware this violates rules governing tissue collection, but disregards them: “To me, that’s kind of a specious little argument.” Federal law requires that no alteration in the timing or method of abortion be done for the purposes of fetal tissue collection (42 U.S.C. 289g-1).

In case you missed it, "intact specimen" is an unborn child that they are "harvesting" for its tissues and organs to be sold to medical research groups.

Planned Parenthood is trafficking in baby body parts

“We’ve been very good at getting heart, lung, liver, because we know that, so I’m not gonna crush that part”

Evil has a real name and it is Planned Parenthood.

The linked video and article can be difficult to read/watch. This has apparently already joined the Kermit Gosnell stories and been pushed out of site by the news apparatus. The full 3 hour video has the Senior Director of Medical Services, Dr. Deborah Nucatola, describing in excruciating detail how she sometimes performs illegal late-term abortions while retrieving fetal body parts that are then sold to researchers.

Are the women really aware that this is what is going on? Are the women in any heightened danger due the the complications of this type of procedure and are they aware and have they agreed to this? Does this go on at all PP clinics? Even those in Texas that just won the ability to not need privileges at local hospitals and don't need to be maintained at hospital standards?

According to PP and their supporters, it is well within a woman's right to choose as the item under discussion is "just a clump of cells". When was the last time a "clump of cells" was able to be the source of human livers, hearts, lungs? If you are admitting that these are human organs, you have to also admit that you are taking them from a "human". PP fights to keep from being required to "fully inform" their clients about what is actually happening to what. They fight to not have to do ultrasounds before performing their procedures. They fight to operate under more lax health and safely rules. As this video highlight, it appears that they also actively break the law.

Hillary was so disappointed in Bill, she tried to join the Marines!

What other conclusion could you possibly draw from her statements?

She told the group gathered for lunch in the Dirksen Office Building, according to The Associated Press, that she became interested in the military in 1975, the year she married Bill Clinton and the year she was teaching at the University of Arkansas law school in Fayetteville.

I guess I could understand that. He was and is a philanderer and as a result of staying with him, she was forced to defend his womanizing ways to the entire country as well as attack some of the women he abused.

So, after recently getting married, maybe starting to realize what she had gotten herself into and wanting an "out", I can see how joining the military that was full of honorable, strong, reliable men, could be appealing to a 27 year old Hillary.

Of course then again this could all be BS just like her claims that:

- she was named after the man who bested Mount Everest – despite her being born in 1947 and Sir Edmund Hillary reaching the top of Everest in 1953

- sniper fire in Bosnia

- having NOTHING to do with "travelgate".

- not knowing that those requested documents were in the White House the entire time

- not knowing about all the women that Bill assaulted

- the cattle futures thing

- etc., etc., etc.

The Supreme Court has ruled that words don't mean what you think they mean

Who knew that so many of us were so wrong! When we read the wording of the ACA and when we read and listened to one of its chief architects (Gruber), we were all "lead" to believe that insurance subsidies were only available to citizens of states that setup their own health exchanges. The IRS decided that that was an issues as 36 states told the Feds to stick the ACA where the sun don't shine, and so decided to give the subsidies to everyone eligible (and quite a few who were not) regardless of if they got insurance from a state exchange or a federal one.

That resulted in a court case to in affect force the IRS to obey the law "as written". Well the Supreme Court (the same one that decided the ACA requirement to purchase health insurance is really a tax and not a product purchase) has decided that those words as written did not really mean what they said. They meant the opposite.

Does this mean that we will not need to send all dictionary proofs through the court so that they can affirm what the definitions of all words are?

To what use is law if the words they are written with are as shiftly as sand?

But we were told Gruber hardly played any roll in Obamacare...

The emails show frequent consultations between Mr. Gruber and top Obama administration staffers and advisers in the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services on the Affordable Care Act. They show he informed HHS about interviews with reporters and discussions with lawmakers, and he consulted with HHS about how to publicly describe his role.

The administration has sought to distance itself from the economist in the wake of his controversial statements in a 2013 video, where he said the health law passed because of the “huge political advantage” of the legislation’s lacking transparency. He also referred to the “stupidity of the American voter.”

I thought the administration and the MSM all said that he only played a "minor" roll and was simply "one of many advisors" that the consulted?!? What? They lied to us? No! Can't be!

“His proximity to HHS and the White House was a whole lot tighter than they admitted,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), chairman of the House oversight committee. “There’s no doubt he was a much more integral part of this than they’ve said. He put up this facade he was an arm’s length away. It was a farce.”

But we were told he was just somebody else involved, one of many.

“Thank you for being an integral part of getting us to this historic moment,” according to Sept. 9, 2009 email to Mr. Gruber from Jeanne Lambrew, a top Obama administration health adviser who worked at HHS and the White House. In a November 2009 email, she called Mr. Gruber “our hero.”

I guess Gruber and the MSM share the same opinion of the majority of Americans, that they are stupid. A number of us saw through this at the time but were mocked for "our" ignorance. Well look who the real rubes are, the Dems that supported this travesty that continues to hurt people and businesses even now as more and more of the reality of Obamacare is realized.

Great news in Puerto Rico on 2A!

As of now, according to Sandra Barreras with Ladies of the Second Amendment (LSA), the group that brought the lawsuit, “there is no regulation to purchase or carry (and) all purchases will be handled in accordance with federal firearms regulations.” LSA is affiliated with SAF through the International Association for the Protection of Civilian Arms Rights (IAPCAR).

Until now it was extremely difficult to get government permission to own a firearm and virtually impossible to get a concealed carry permit. There were even limits on how much ammunition you could purchase or have in your possession at any one time.

Suicide bombers get in fight, blow themselves up

Two suspected terrorist bombers in Pakistan died amusing deaths over the weekend when a fight between them led to a bomb detonation that killed them and nobody else.

The good news does not stop there:

Following the explosions, police investigated the mens’ homes and made arrests of suspected collaborators as well.

What you won't hear on the news about the attack in Texas...

A couple of ISIS wannabes tried to shoot up an exhibition of cartoons in Garland, Texas, and the police put them down before the civilians could get to them: a triumph for duty and marksmanship. What didn’t happen next?

There is a mosque in Garland, Texas. It was there yesterday, it’s there today, and it will be there tomorrow. After two radical Muslims attempted to massacre some infidels down the road a bit, there was no angry mob of Texans storming the place with F-350s and rifles. If any vehicle full of armed men rushed to the Muslims’ place of worship, you can be sure that it was the local police exercising an abundance of caution and nothing more.

It’s easy to be snarky–”Oh, yay for us! No massacre, give Texas a cookie!” But only those parochial minds with the narrowest of experience could fail to appreciate how unusual that is in the world.

Exactly right! If a mob had stormed down there or even calm protesters showed up, the MSM would have had dozens of reporters and cameras right there proclaiming how bigoted "those Texans" are but that didn't happen and so that is not news. The fact that representatives of a group attempted a bloody attack and that attack was not returned "in kind" against other members of that group IS news that will not get reported. This is America and that type of thing [NOT holding groups responsible for individual actions] is not unusual - at least not on the right.

Anti-smoking brigade

The anti-smoking brigade is likely the worst of the "don't do that" groups. An activity that [for now] is still legal in America, is an activity that they not only oppose but actively attack as though it was on par with murder (and to some of them second-hand smoke is murder). They are [mostly] vehemently opposed to smoking and to any/all that partake. They are not happy simply letting everyone know that smoking is bad. Smokers must be turned into social pariah. These people are not really looking to help smokers quit quite as much as they are looking to make themselves feel superior to those that do smoke.

How do I know this? I know this because if the anti-smoking crowd was really trying to reduce the rates of smoking AND help smokers, they would endorse a tool that is widely available, inexpensive, and far, far safer than smoking cigarettes. They do not do this though. Instead the lump this "aid" into the same bucket as cigarettes.

What is this vilified solution you ask, it is e-cigarettes.

Electronic cigarettes are by far a more healthy option than actually smoking tobacco cigarettes but instead of handing out free "quit smoking" kits that include e-cigarettes, the anti-smoking groups are actually lobbying to have e-cigarettes classified in the same category as tobacco cigarettes, to include bans on indoor vaping, etc.

If they fully endorsed e-cigarettes instead of trying to treat them just like tobacco cigarettes and allowed their use indoors, this in and of its self would be a big motivator for a lot of smokers to at least partially switch over to e-cigarettes as having to go outside [regardless of the weather] is a big inconvenience for tobacco smokers. Being able to "vape up" in-side would motivate quite a number of smokers to give vaping a try.

One of their arguments for treating them the same is that e-cigarettes can serve as a "gateway" to tobacco cigarettes. If any of them had actually tried an e-cigarette and then tried to smoke a "real" tobacco cigarette, they would immediately understand how foolish that argument is. I find it extremely hard to believe that most people that currently do not smoke tobacco cigarettes but do vape, would move from vaping to tobacco. There is a night and day difference. The smell is the thing. It gets everywhere and affects everything. A cigarette smoker can move to vaping (and I know a number of people that have) and after a week or so, they all comment on how much nicer their cloths smell, how much more and better they can actually smell, and how much easier they sleep, etc. The succession of inhaling burning leaves and changing to inhaling a most vapor is astounding to see. Once a smoker has moved from tobacco to an e-cigarette they are then free to modify the amount of nicotine that they ingest. I know of smokers that after switching to e-cigarettes have migrated to zero nicotine fluid. For them it is the process, the habit, the social aspects of smoking. The fact that they were able to exchange a stinking stick of burning leaves for the clean, odor free e-cig experience of vaping is (for them) a god sent miracle.

What does the anti-smoking crowd do with this "solution" to the tobacco problem? Why they move to get it treated JUST LIKE TOBACCO! Why? Because it LOOKS too much like smoking tobacco!

Dear Lord, please do all in your power to save us all from those that want to help us "for our own good" as they will be the death of us, in your name we pray!

Awareness campaigns

Which of these things is more useful? Getting a group together and going around an area picking up litter or getting a group together and holding a litter awareness campaign? The first actually helps clean up a neighborhood and the second tries to put the word out that littering is bad. Who doesn't already know that littering is bad? Either you already care or you don't. If you care, nothing changes. If you don't, nothing changes. So why bother if nothing changes? Sorry that is not quite true. Those holding the awareness event get to raise their smug level by some degree. They get to "feel" like they did something without actually having to do something. Instead of getting up early, going out and picking up a bunch of trash, they get to hold an Event! Who would not rather have an Event!? Events! are fun. Picking up trash sucks. But one of these activities actually produces results and does some good.

This same holds true for all of these other "hot topic" awareness events: cancer awareness, rape awareness, racism & hate awareness, etc. Who does not already know that these things are bad? That these things should be worked against, to be stopped/ended? What actual results are these folks trying to accomplish by raising awareness of the obvious? And the answer is... To make themselves feel better that they "did something". What does it matter that the "something" has the same affect as farting in a hurricane? At least they feel better. They get to walk around like they actually accomplished something important! Awareness campaigns allow the participants to "feel" like they are being productive without having to actually do the harder work needed to actually produce results.

Awareness campaigns are the adult equivalent of participation ribbons for kids. They allow "credit" for showing up, results are irrelevant.

There is actually one awareness campaign that would be usefully. An awareness campaign spreading the word on the uselessness of awareness campaigns! If it saves even one group of collage students or coastal liberals from waiting their time raising awareness of issues that everyone already agrees on, it will have been worth it AND it will have had more results than all of these other awareness campaigns combined!

The 18-month-old racist

“I told Jud McMillin I love his son, but he’s scare of me because of my color,” Democratic Rep. Vanessa Summers said to Mr. McMmillin, who is white, during last week’s debate, the Indy Star reported March 24.

“He looked at me like I was a monster and turned around and cried,” Ms. Summer said, the newspaper reported. “And I told him you need to introduce your child to some people that are dark-skinned so he will not be scared.”

There you have it! There is absolutely no other possible reason for an 18 month old to cry other than racism! I wonder what the cut-off is for racist induced crying? 12 months? 6 months? 2 weeks? Only preemies may apply?

As noted in the source article: It’s becoming near impossible to discern parody from seriousness with this crowd.

James Carville tries his best to help Hillary! recover from her email issues

You know team Hillary! is worried when they drag out Carville to cover for her. If you listen, he builds a nice pile of strawmen and then only mostly manages to knock them down.

He falsely categorizes the email scandal as saying Powell and Bush did it too when in fact Hillary conducted 100% of her Secretary of State business email on private servers and then turned over who knows how many of them [two years after leaving that job] that her team vetted to make sure they are clear of anything that might shed bad light on her.

He touched on her foundation taking MILLIONS of dollars from foreign governments by saying many organizations did after Katrina again confusing private charities with the Clinton foundation taking money from governments that Hillary was negotiating with when she was SOS.

Carville asks "if we really want to say she is a crook". For all rational peoples, the answer is a clear and loud YES. YES Hillary Clinton is a crook! She has used her husband and their influence to get money and power for her and her family for their entire lives and YES they have done things that are unethical and criminal! The rules do not apply to them. They are above the law.

Clinton, SOS email gaps...

Representative Trey Gowdy (R., S.C.), chairman of the House committee investigating the 2012 Benghazi attack, said that there are “gaps of months and months and months” in the e-mails that former secretary of state Hillary Clinton has handed over to the committee so far.

Turned over so far...

Just incredible. Hillary used a private email server for the ENTIRE 4 years of her SOS career and it took her team two years after she left the job to hand over emails and UNEXPECTEDLY there are gaps! Remember this is the same Hillary that gave a speech about the Bush administration "shredding the constitution" in part due to the rumor that there were secret email accounts.

Hillary Clinton asks State Department to release her emails...

Hillary Clinton has asked the State Department to release her emails to try and end this "email scandal". My headline is one that a number of news organizations are running. It is actually a partial truth. To be completely true, the headline should read: Hillary Clinton asks State Department to Release all of the Emails She Gave Them. That is the issue. As this was a private server (apparently hosted in her residents), there is NO way for anyone to know what was on it AND that is the way that Hillary likes it. You can't FOIA what you don't know about or what State does not have.

Remember, this is not a government official occasionally sending work emails through their private account [though that is bad enough]. This is someone that sent 100% of all of their State Department work mail through their own, private email server. Every Single Person she sent official email to could see she was not using a government email account but no one officially raised any red flags?

She is now claiming she did not know she could not do this. She knew about it enough in at least 2007 when she leveled similar charges (using un-official email accounts) against the Bush administration.

WOW! Just WOW and this person wants to be President? WOW!

Obamacare realities!

Obamacare realities strike home! Another fan discovers the hard reality that there "an't no such thing as a free lunch". Welcome to the results of getting what you want. I hope that this is a learning experience for you but I won't hold my breath as there was sufficient information available before Obamacare "got jammed through congress with just a Democrat party line vote and other procedural tricks" but you were still all for it and cheered when it was signed into law. Well now you get to live with the results unless the Republicans can undo this mess - at which time you are likely to blame them for something anyway.

The Clinton Foundation

"It is very unwise for Hillary Clinton to be associated with a foundation that is taking millions of dollars from foreign governments. This isn't just the appearance of a conflict of interest this is a real conflict of interest."

To quote a politician, "At this point, what difference does it make?" (Hillary Clinton). I guess she does not see anything wrong with this because the Obama campaign did not see anything wrong with accepting campaign contributions from foreigners either, despite laws to the contrary.

"The question is is what has the foundation been spending their money on because it doesn't appear to be is under 10% of their budget, of the money they have raised that has actually gone out to charitable giving"

Over 2 Billion dollars has been raised / collected. This is how the Clintons operate. Remember those cattle futures? Remember the White Water dealings? What kind of quid pro quo does that kind of money buy? Only the Clinton can say for sure! The more things change, the more they stay the same.

NBC: Making up the news that is too good to not be true...

"This is at least the fifth time in recent years that NBC or MSNBC has gotten caught cooking the books, John Nolte writes at Big Journalism"

All of this has happened under the watch of Steve Capus (pictured above), who’s not only the president of NBC News, but also the “the arbiter of issues involving ethics, style, standards, safety and other matters that affect the Division’s journalistic bearing.”

This is not the only reason but it is one of the main reasons that I do not watch TV news. National and local news stations are too political and too quick to put their own slant on whatever the current hot story is instead of doing their basic job; presenting the facts. Today the entire news industry (TV, print, and radio) has far too many "journalists" and far too view reporters. Too many journalists got into that field in order to "change the world" or to "make a difference". I just want the facts, the who, what, when, where, and why. I don't want to be "told a story" or be fed and "narrative". Too many of the stories have a slant or a bias and often it is easy to see based on how the story is presented and/or what is left out. What questions are not asked. I can get a far more accurate picture of an event far more quickly using the internet and alternate news sources than by any of the "real" news outlets.

As a related event, let us not forget to mention Brian Williams, who is now in the news himself for "embellishing" (to put it kindly) his own bio by claiming he was involved in situations and exploits that did not happen; for example, a helicopter he was riding in taking a hit from an RPG rocket.

Operation Choke Point - your government at work (for your own good)...

Guidelines designed to discourage banks from doing business with illegal and heinous operations involving things like human trafficking and child pornography are now being applied to legal and legitimate businesses which are deemed “high risk.”

“Our hands are tied by it,” a regional manager with Heritage Credit Union told Hawkins Guns owner Mike Shuetz of federal regulations which forced the institution to close Shuetz’s bank accounts in November.

Operation Choke Point was designed by the government to systematically cut off banking services and payment processing to gun and ammo businesses. This was done in part by adding these businesses to the "high risk" banking category and by pressuring banks and credit unions with additional audits and oversight if their portfolios contain these types of businesses.

Government by regulation, death by a thousand cuts...

Dawn should enter orbit around Ceres — the largest object in the main asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter — on March 6, 2015. When that happens, the spacecraft will become the first ever to orbit two different unexplored solar system bodies. (Dawn circled the protoplanet Vesta, the asteroid belt's second-largest object, from July 2011 through September 2012.) 

Too cool!

California now giving driver’s licenses to illegal alians

California has begun accepting driver’s license applications from immigrants who are in the country illegally.

The DMV expects 1.4 million people will seek a license in the first three years of a program aimed at boosting road safety and making illegal (ed. there fixed it for you) immigrants’ lives easier.

So, how does one know that the "illegal" is who they are claiming to be? How does one know that an "illegal" does not go to the DMV 3, 4, or more times to get a "valid driver's license" under any number of names? How long will it be until failure to accept one of these legal "illegal" licenses becomes a crime? By definition, an illegal immigrant is here against the law and is ALREADY breaking the law by being here. What part of "illegal immigrant" do these folks not understand?
