It's cold, but a lot of the snow melted yesterday and more

should melt today. And now they're saying rain tonight & tomorrow. Yuck. Anyway,
Wow, the 9th Circus actually slapped a federal judge down! And for actual good reasons!

Rep. Murtha(Corrupt Bastard-PA) is in the hospital. I admit a temptation to say a number of things, but I'll not do that today.

“He didn’t learn his lesson the first time, but when he hurt our economy by his ill conceived rhetoric, we didn’t think it would happen again, but now that it has I want to assure you, when he comes I’ll do everything I can to give him the boot back to Washington and to visit his failures back there.

“I gotta tell you this, everybody says I shouldn’t say it, but I gotta tell you the way it is. This president is a real slow learner.”

Sen. Reid must be SO happy to have The Obama coming to town for him.

Oh, wonderful. Question is, will The Obama send them a stern note, or just try to overlook this? I say 'overlook' because he's finally learned, I think, that if he publicly protests the next thing will be Ahmadogcrap telling him to go to hell.

That is one big-ass snowblower.

Ah, that seems just a bit excessive for whitetail...

I used to think a lot of Arpaio; after reading the last few months about some of the stuff coming out, not so much.

Last: Supposedly Abdulmuttalab is talking. Isn't that convenient? I mean, here Holder & Co. are getting serious heat about "Who decided? When? And why?" and the announce "Hey, he's talking, see how good our work is?"

Also, to borrow from Ace,
First, awesome and all but relying on the family of a terrorist to help gather intelligence isn't exactly a sure fire strategy. The fact that this guy's dad gave him up beforehand shows how extraordinary a case this is. There are huge numbers of examples of everyday Americans who won't help authorities put their family members behind bars for ordinary crime. Does anyone think we can rely on this type of cooperation every time?

Second, Abdulmuttalab began talking over a month after the attack. Do we really have that kind of time to waste? Considering the top counter terrorism officials in the administration said yesterday it's a virtual certainty that there will be another attempted attack within the next 3-6 months, I'd so we don't

That's it for now, I need to find a 1/4" bolt 1" long.

Don't ask.

After clicking the link & reading the article, it reads like a bunch of gub'ment-employed left-leaning whiners & panty-wadders are all paranoid over nothing. In the entire article, I read nothing that Arpaio & crew ACTUALLY DID. It all reads about what the panty-wadders THINK HE MIGHT DO. If Arpaio HAD ACTUALLY DONE SOMETHING, the county & the MSM would have been all over him like white on rice.
The county & the state are continually trying to prune Arpaio back & make him PC. But he's not having any of it & continues to do what HE thinks is his job, not what the PC powers-that-be think is his job. His attitude is, "the people voted & elected me in, I wasn't selected. As soon as the people don't like the job I'm doing, they can vote me out & I'll retire."

So I STILL say, GO JOE!"

He's done- is doing for that matter- some very good stuff. But there's been some bullshit come out over the last few years that indicates a bad case of "I was elected so I'll do what I want." And apparently there've been a lot of times his department has fallen prey to the 'We have a tac team, let's use it a lot!' mess.
