Do you want to know just what a miserable shit Stupak is?

Well, Democrats can't stand to have their precious economy-destroying healthcare program criticized in its very first week, so they've announced an "investigation" into the claims. Late yesterday, the House Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigation sent letters to the CEOs of AT&T, Caterpillar, Deere & Co, and Verizon asking them to appear for a hearing on their claims. In the letters, Waxman and Stupak ask for company documents including accounting analyses and the internal emails of all "senior company officials" related to the projected costs of ObamaCare. How serious are they? The letter actually defines "senior company officials."

Oh, and the 'wiretapping charges' against O'Keefe?

The charges against O’Keefe and three other men have been reduced to a misdemeanor offense of entering federal property under false pretenses. Yes, the extent of their offense is that two of the men dressed up like the construction worker in the Village People and claimed to be phone repairmen. Call it “Misdemeanor Mischief.”
A day in court... that could get downright interesting. And don't count on actual corrections from the MSM who screwed up the story in the first place; after all, if they gave a damn about things like truth and facts they wouldn't be the suckups to Obama and the NSDP that they are.

Rep. James Clyburn(National Socialist Democrat-SC) is a RWPP

of epic proportions. Which is not a good thing if you care about truth, honor, any of that crap.

That tailgate handle came in,

and despite the reviews stating it's steel, the damn thing's plastic.

You can imagine how overjoyed I am.

And speaking of sold-out media weenies,

if they actually gave a rats ass about giving all the information, this would be getting at least as much attention as the bullshit "They called me names!" stuff from the NSDP*.

Of course, we're talking about media weenies who went WAY out of their way to avoid showing pictures of leftists calling for Bush to be murdered. And troops to murder their officers. So we should expect integrity from them now?

Thoughts on the fair

Went down for the day, and it was really strange: no booth to watch, no forge to run. And there was this empty space where my setup used to be! Damn. On the gooder side, I saw more shows and other artisans work and more stuff today than I think I had in at least the last five years.

One of the things I really liked about working it? When someone would show up with a broken something and "Can you fix it?" Or a piece and "Can you make some more?" Or "I need 'X' for a display rack/support, can you make me one?" I saw a number of those pieces today; Deity only knows how many tent stakes are in the ground right now that came out of my fire.

I can't remember if I'd shown these before, but it seems appropriate: this is my sgian dhu, and the new dirk I made myself(one of the few blades I ever made just for me):The dirk is 18" overall, 13" blade, about 1.6" wide and just under 1/4" thick at the guard. The blade is 5160 spring steel, the guard and pommel hammered nickel silver, the grip curly walnut. The blade tapers in width and thickness over most of the length.

The sgian dhu is 8" overall, 3.75" blade from the front of the collar to the point, just under 1" wide and .13" thick. This blade started as a 3/4" ball bearing, 52-100 steel. And forging it from ball to bar was a pain. The collar is nickel silver, the grip walnut. The final finish on both blades was done with a buffing wheel and 400-grit greaseless compound.

And yes, they're both sharp.

I've still got my older 'dirk'- actually a stright-clip bowie design' but no picture handy, I'll get one later. That started off as something made to sell, but I couldn't turn loose of it. Good knife; I just decided to make one more fitting for kilt wear, with sheath to match.

I miss making this stuff.

Some more important stuff

Another chickenshit, hypocritical, cowardly member of the National Socialist Democrats Party, Rep. Nickolas Levasseur:
My Interests

Medicine, biology, mathematics, anything that doesn't involve Organic Chemistry, cars that don't begin with "Ford" and end with "Aspire", HBO series, Bill Mahar, politics, the hunting of neo-conservative Reaganites (a shooting sport brought to you by the republican party in more ways than one!), sleeping (it is sad when necessary life takes become occational hobbies).
Awwww, how much you want to bet this little weenie would bitch and scream and cry for the EffingBI and Secret Service if someone said something like this about him? Levasseur, you're a worthless little waste of oxygen.

Breitbart: I'm Offering $10,000 For Audio or Video Proof of One of the Alleged 15 Uses of the N-Word Rep. Lewis' Aide Claims Were Hurled At Him — Ace
Awright, Lewis, you lying little bastard, let's see it.

And in a further demonstration of the disgusting levels to which Associated Press will sink to suck up to and aid Obama, go read.
The health care overhaul will cost U.S. companies billions and make them more likely to drop prescription drug coverage for retirees because of a change in how the government subsidizes those benefits.

In the first two days after the law was signed, three major companies — Deere & Co., Caterpillar Inc. and Valero Energy — said they expect to take a total hit of $265 million to account for smaller tax deductions in the future.

With more than 3,500 companies now getting the tax break as an incentive to keep providing coverage, others are almost certain to announce similar cost increases in the weeks ahead as they sort out the impact of the change

First things first: Montana, just what are you going to do about your National Socialist Senator?

Yeah, we knew that but now Sen. Max "Hey My Girlfriend Would Be A Great US Attorney" Baucus admits it.

...the wealthy are getting way, way too wealthy, and the middle income class is left behind. Wages have not kept up with increased income of the highest income in America. This legislation will have the effect of addressing that mal-distribution of income in America.

But don't you dare call it socialism!

Follow the link for the video and decide for your self if you think he's drunk.

And let us take note of the next crapweasel Obama wants

to put in charge of something important:
Gabriel Schoenfeld points out in the Weekly Standard that the administration’s nominee to be general counsel of the Army, Solomon B. Watson IV, was general counsel of the New York Times when it broke the story of the Treasury’s program to uncover terrorist financing.

Watson has drawn fire for his role in allowing the disclosure of that program. Certainly the Times deserves a black eye for that disclosure, which even its own public editor ended up condemning – admitting, “I haven’t found any evidence in the intervening months that the surveillance program was illegal.”

Maybe Watson was not involved in the Times’s decision to publish the story, although given the extraordinary Treasury effort to persuade the Times not to publish, it would be a surprise if it didn’t ask its general counsel whether it could legally disclose the program — and whether the program it was disclosing was itself legal. If they had a client that made decisions like that without consulting them, most lawyers wouldn’t stick around as general counsel very long

Yeah, it's just SO wonderful to have such a statesman

in the White House.
Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family, it emerged on Thursday. The snub marked a fresh low in US-Israeli relations and appeared designed to show Mr Netanyahu how low his stock had fallen in Washington after he refused to back down in a row over Jewish construction in east Jerusalem.

… (Mr. Obama) immediately presented Mr Netanyahu with a list of 13 demands designed both to the end the feud with his administration and to build Palestinian confidence ahead of the resumption of peace talks. Key among those demands was a previously-made call to halt all new settlement construction in east Jerusalem.

When the Israeli prime minister stalled, Mr Obama rose from his seat declaring: “I’m going to the residential wing to have dinner with Michelle and the girls.” As he left, Mr Netanyahu was told to consider the error of his ways. “I’m still around,” Mr Obama is quoted by Israel’s Yediot Ahronot newspaper as having said. “Let me know if there is anything new.”

As to the National Socialist(Democrat) whining about 'threats',

Insty has some bits and pieces of past National Socialist threats and acts:
here and here and here and here, for instance. Lots of actual attacks on people, lots of real violence, beatings and arson and property damage.

And let us not forget the major media: those people who did their best to report the absolute minimum on the above, when they bothered to report it at all. What did I keep hearing last night? They kept playing a recording of a woman who called one of Hoyer's buttmonkeys and called him a piece of shit, and THAT was blared as A THREAT! AND THE REPUBLICANS ARE RESPONSIBLE!!! And the media- including Fox, that supposed Stupid Party mouthpiece- kept repeating Hoyer's and the other NS dirtbags accusations, over and over.
There's a reason I have a category 'Reporters- sorry excuse for'.

Again from Insty: He was notably silent when it was President Obama making pitchfork threats, and when his political ally ACORN was busing mobs to executives’ homes. Man up, Steny. Or just, you know, shut up. You’re a hypocrite when it comes to thuggery, and you and your colleagues aren’t credible playing the victim.

Like the bullshit about people yelling racial and homosexual slurs? That stuff that didn't happen?
Meanwhile, if it had to pass by a referendum among American voters, would spitting on Congressmen even be a crime?
UPDATE: Stephen Green emails: “If it had to pass by referendum…spitting on congressmen might be compulsory.”
Only after drinking heavily, so it's more of 'throwing up on'.

I just realized why I'm so jumpy

Aside from, to borrow from Michaleen O'Flynn, having a pint with friends to 'talk a little treason'. It's the lack of frantic activity on a personal level.

For more than twenty years the Wednesday before Med-Fair meant loading the big stuff* in the truck so I could drive it down Thursday morning for setup. Today I helped friend the gunsmith with some things, came home and ate dinner, and now I'm comfortably browsing the inerwebs a bit instead of doing heavy lifting and checking the list.

It's really odd.

*Anvil, stump, forge, coal bucket(full) and water bucket(empty), a bunch of steel of various sizes/shapes/types, one damned heavy toolbox and so on.

And Obama is America's first Third World president.

What's this got to do with Britain, or indeed with Europe? Plenty. Obama is the first US president who was raised without cultural or emotional or intellectual ties to either Britain or Europe. The British and the Europeans have been so enchanted with 'America's first black president' that they haven't been able to see what he really is: America's first Third World president.

If you doubt it, remember the kick in the teeth he gave Britain over the Falklands just a few weeks ago. Obama had his Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, fly to Buenos Aires to give American support to President Kirchner's call for international negotiations over the Falklands. Amazing. What was more amazing is that all we've heard out of Number 10 and the Foreign Office since then is that it doesn't mean anything.

Oh, yes it does, and Washington insiders know it does
Odd thing: I went to the Daily Mail site to read the whole thing, and the page is there but the article isn't. Hopefully just a temporary glitch. Or did enough leftists scream that the paper took it down?

Awww, the National Socialists are all wee-weeing their pants

because people are mad at them.

I don't recall these clowns speaking out about posters calling for Bush to be killed. Or telling idiot actors to shut up with they called for Republican politicians and their families to be dragged into the street and murdered. Or when their leftist friends were sending ACORN mobs to the homes of AIG execs.

Hoyer, you're either a coward or just disgusting. Or both. Probably both. Shut the hell up and pull on your big-girl panties.

In a way, I wish that miserable bastard Murtha was still around

so we could ask him about this:
The defense for the last Marine facing criminal charges in the fatal shooting of 24 Iraqi civilians in Haditha in 2005 won a key ruling Tuesday that could lead to the case being dropped.

Lt. Col. David Jones, the military judge, ruled that attorneys for Staff Sgt. Frank Wuterich had successfully shown that there was the possibility of what the military calls undue command influence in the decision by a general to send Wuterich to a court martial.

Jones' ruling requires that prosecutors prove beyond a reasonable doubt that no such influence existed or that, while it may have existed, it did not influence the general's decision.
Jones set a hearing for Wednesday to hear any evidence prosecutors want to present. Maj. Nicholas Gannon, one of the prosecutors, said he was "99.9% sure" that he has no further evidence

Well, Medieval Fair or somebody connected with it has just decided to really tick off

the customers.

In the past, one of the nice things about it was that parking at Lloyd Noble Center was free. Guess what?
Parking is available one block from the park at Lloyd Noble Center, located just north of HWY 9 East on Jenkins Avenue. (Handicapped parking is available on the park grounds.) Note: The University of Oklahoma Athletic Department will be charging $5 per car for parking at the center.
Ain't that just freakin' wonderful?

Yeah, what was once the Democrat Party is now the National Socialists

“The harsh fact of the matter is when you’re going to pass legislation that will cover 300 [million] American people in different ways it takes a long time to do the necessary administrative steps that have to be taken to put the legislation together to control the people.”
Really, Dingell? You want legislation to control me?

Fuck you, Dingell. You and Pelosi and Obama and all.

Among the dirtbags who need to be shown the door(or the window)

is Rep. Dennis Moore(National Socialist*-KS) who said this when pinned down on "What's in the Obamacare Bill?":
I don’t know. And I will find out. But I don’t know if that’s in there. This is, as you know, a multi-hundred, several hundred pages of bill, but uh, uh, I'll check with Dr. Wolf directly too and talk to him and find out what, what, what his concern is because I don't know that.

Blue Dog Democrat my ass, you're a turncoat little ass-kisser for Obama and Pelosi.

*I may just start using this instead of Democrat, since that's what the leadership is

For some of the idiocies and crookedness in the Obamacare Bill

take a look here at Insty. A tampon tax? And this:
Hours after President Barack Obama signed historic health care legislation, a potential problem emerged. Administration officials are now scrambling to fix a gap in highly touted benefits for children.

Obama made better coverage for children a centerpiece of his health care remake, but it turns out the letter of the law provided a less-than-complete guarantee that kids with health problems would not be shut out of coverage.

Under the new law, insurance companies still would be able to refuse new coverage to children because of a pre-existing medical problem, said Karen Lightfoot, spokeswoman for the House Energy and Commerce Committee, one of the main congressional panels that wrote the bill Obama signed into law Tuesday
among other bullcrap. Hope! and Change!! for real.

So our Governor Brad Henry and AG Drew Edmondson, both members of the National Socialist Party

have decided that instead of joining the suit against Obamacare they're studying the issue. Which, since I'm fresh out of tolerance and willingness to give a break to politicians, probably means "We're trying to figure out how to stay out of trouble with voters while still kissing Obama's ass."

Elections. Your sorry asses out of those offices. Soon as possible.

Few of the pertinent comics

found at Theo's

Had the radio on a minute ago and Glenn Beck was railing about "Do NOT do ANYTHING that can even be perceived as violent, etc., because the Socialist Party WANTS you to." Etc. Which brought to mind a quesiton:
Since the Socialist Party(formerly Democrat Party) is going to ignore anything we say or do, they're going to lie about us and foment violence against us, since the major media will buy into and push those lies, since corrupt officials will attempt to ignore the violence, etc., it brings us the the question: what's really to lose if we DO do something 'nasty'? They're going to call us names? Make false charges? Try to ruin us? Hell, they're doing that NOW.

"Obama and the Socialist Party have promised these things!

(but don't you DARE try to actually hold us to them)

Damn, wonder why we didn't hear of this?

BEIJING – A former medical worker stabbed to death eight young children and wounded five others Tuesday in a bloody rampage outside an elementary school in eastern China.
But what's this?
China has witnessed a series of school attacks in recent years, most blamed on people with personal grudges or suffering from mental illness, leading to calls for improved security.

We will plague the Socialists who sold us out,

we will end their political careers, we will dog them at their every appearance, their every step, and when they see the yellow of the Gadsen flying uniform in the wind with the American flag they will fear us as a government should fear its people – NOT the other way around.

We will hold every Republican to the fire and so help us if they don’t fight until their last breath to repeal this massive affront to liberty we will burn them in effigy along with the traitors to the Constitution.

We will insert ourselves into every branch and level of public service and devour our party so we will never have to worry about another impotent candidate ascending to power again, so we never again have to worry about being bulldozed by tyrants

Sounds good. Though I still want to- well, how about a small trailer with the smell of hot tar for atmosphere when these bastards talk down to us? Maybe a few handfuls of feathers thrown up? And THIS Gadsden flag:
Patches available here from Thirdpower

Sen. Lindsay Graham(RINO Bastard) is not a sucker;

he's a backstabbing, lying whore politician* who, like a bunch of others who need to be removed from office coated with tar and feathers, doesn't give a rats ass what the voters think. He only cares about what he wants.

*with apologies to honest whores who actually sell sex in a fair deal

Here's a good question: is it insulting to whores

to call a politician such?
Congress is nothing like a prostitute. A prostitute only wants cash that customers actually have, and usually tells them the real price of the services being purchased. A prostitute doesn’t impose hidden fees through inflation (we don’t generally give prostitutes the power to print money, but somehow we let Congress approve stimulus packages and spend money that doesn’t exist). A prostitute doesn’t increase the national debt (in fact, it is government, by keeping prostitution illegal, that increases the deficit in yet another way, by making income from prostitution outside of the system and not taxable).
True. Though both lots of prostitutes and politicians carry social diseases, just different kinds.

Added: from Joe in comments:
You missed the most important differences: prostitutes don't charge you for services rendered to somebody else, and they don't send armed agents to your home if you choose not to do business with them.

This goes beyond 'Sorry excuses for lawmen' and into

'Disgusting bastards who should be in prison'.
Remember the man who was killed by police because he tried to drive away when a bunch of guys in plain clothes and masks jumped out of an unmarked vehicle with guns? And was then accused of various things that had to be dropped? It gets even worse.

Ignore the idiot way this arrest was attempted; ignore the malice of the lies thrown at the dead man to exonerate the cops of their responsibility in his death; get this:
District Attorney Brian Rickman praised the Georgia Bureau of Investigation for going to "very extraordinary lengths" to insure the investigation into the shooting was fair. But Abigail Ayers' civil suit (PDF) calls that assessment into question. The complaint alleges that Officer Harrison, the cop who shot Ayers, wasn't even authorized to arrest him. On the day Ayers was killed, Harrison had yet to take a series of firearms training classes required for his certification as a police officer. More astonishing, Harrison apparently had no training at all in the use of lethal force.

These allegations have since been confirmed by local TV station WSBTV and, after the fact, by the Georgia Bureau of Investigation. Despite the fact that Harrison had killed a man suspected of no crime months earlier without having undergone lethal-force training and certification, the officer was still carrying his badge and gun up until the time of the WSBTV report. Once the publicity hit, Harrison was suspended. Abigail Ayers' civil suit also alleges prior disciplinary problems with both officers Oxner and Harrison, including alleged drug use
You, as a plain old citizen, carry without getting permission from the state and kill someone in unquestioned self-defense and they'll put you in prison for not having a permit; this bastard was not a certified officer, had NO privilege to carry a badge at all let alone take part in a mess like this AND THEY LET HIM KEEP CARRYING A BADGE AND GUN AFTER HIS KILLING OF AYERS. I'm going to borrow this bit from Balko's post:
...That a police officer untrained in the use of lethal force and unqualified to be holding a badge and gun was put on a narcotics task force, and then placed in a position where he was able to shoot and kill a non-suspect is worse. But the kicker has to be that the subsequent police-led investigations of this high-profile case failed to turn up such a critical piece of information. It ought to cast more doubt on the already dubious notion that police shootings should only be investigated by other police officers.
Once upon a time I didn't like the idea of non-cops being involved in investigations of LE shootings; I've grown up a lot since that time(I used to trust the FBI to be always professional and fair, too).

All you people who just couldn't wait to vote for the first black President

and liked the 'hope and change' bull, how's that working out for you?
The White House is considering whether to detain international terrorism suspects at a U.S. military base in Afghanistan, senior U.S. officials said, an option that would lead to another prison with the same purpose as Guantanamo Bay, which it has promised to close.

The idea, which would require approval by President Obama, already has drawn resistance from within the government. Army Gen. Stanley A. McCrystal, the top commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, and other senior officials strongly oppose it, fearing that expansion of the U.S. detention facility at Bagram air base could make the job of stabilizing the country even tougher.

That the option of detaining suspects captured outside Afghanistan at Bagram is being contemplated reflects a recognition by the Obama administration that it has few other places to hold and interrogate foreign prisoners without giving them access to the U.S. court system, the officials said
"I will close Guananamo!(but open a different prison in another country, because who knew there would be actual problems with closing Gitmo?)

In one case last year, U.S. special operations forces killed an Al Qaeda-linked suspect named Saleh Ali Saleh Nabhan in a helicopter attack in southern Somalia rather than trying to capture him, a U.S. official said. Officials had debated trying to take him alive but decided against doing so in part because of uncertainty over where to hold him, the official added.

U.S. officials find such options unappealing for handling suspects they want to question but lack the evidence to prosecute. For such suspects, a facility such as Bagram, north of Kabul, remains necessary, officials said, even as they acknowledged that having it in Afghanistan could complicate McCrystal's mission.

"No one particularly likes any of the choices before us right now, but Bagram may be the least bad among them," a senior Defense official said
This is one of the end results of Obama & Holder & Co. trying to play "Terrorists and illegal combatants are just muggers writ large and get a civil trial."

Speaking of AG Eric Holder,
Byron York notes that the Department of Justice has delayed today’s appearance of Eric Holder to the Senate Judiciary Committee after a “disastrous” hearing earlier this month. The Attorney General made headlines when he dodged a question regarding the handling of terrorists by claiming that the US would wind up reading Miranda rights to Osama bin Laden’s corpse:

Why? Word is that it’s because of the signing ceremony for the national health care bill, but well-informed Republicans suspect the occasion may also have given Democrats an opportunity to put off what could turn into another embarrassing performance by the attorney general.
A source on Capitol Hill confirmed to me that the White House used the ObamaCare signing as their reason to postpone Holder’s appearance at Judiciary. However, the real reason could be a series of embarrassing admissions in a submission to the committee from the DoJ. Judiciary had asked for answers on the oft-claimed “hundreds” of terrorists tried in the federal court system, as well as an explanation of how the federal court system can protect national-security information as well as military commissions. According to this source, the DoJ’s answers confirm exactly what had been suspected — that Holder has not been telling the truth on either point:

In responses submitted to the Judiciary Committee this afternoon, the Department of Justice concedes that military commission trials have better safeguards for protecting classified national security information from leaks than civilian criminal trials. Although Attorney General Holder has repeatedly testified that civilian criminal trials are just as effective as military commission trials in protecting classified information, even stating that classified information protections in the Military Commissions Act were modeled on the Classified Information Procedures Act (CIPA) used in federal courts, the responses received today (see pp. 29-32) tell a different story. They acknowledge that the MCA’s classified information protections are better than what is available in federal criminal courts. In fact, the responses explain how the military commission rules improved upon the civilian criminal rules “to take into account lessons learned in terrorism cases in federal court.” The Department’s submission to the Committee then details 7 categories of “key differences” between the classified information protections in military commission trials that are not similarly present in the federal criminal law.

Translation: Holder lied, got caught, and doesn't want to get caught lying again. Wonderful guy you appointed and your tame Senate passed, Obama.

The gentleman at Eternity Road has a good thought:

Let them know fear. I'd add 'disgust'. One of his suggestions is a lot less messy than the things that came to mind:
It is therefore important to remember that the congressmen who vote regularly to usurp the rights of the people against their will are also members of our communities. They must be cast out.

If they choose to associate with the thieves in Washington D.C. and vote the wealth of the people to be given to themselves, then they choose to stay there. They are no longer welcome among us.

If they choose to tar their opponents as racists or shut down protests against their betrayals, then they choose to forfeit their own rights to speak. Any media that grant them interviews should be boycotted, any appearance they make should be disrupted by peaceful, but loud protest. If they will not listen to the people speak, then the people must ensure they may not speak either
One of the things that's annoyed hell out of me for years has been the deference shown to politicians; somebody gets introduced as Rep. Foghorn or Senator Jackass and far too many people damn near literally kiss their ass. It's given them far to high an opinion of themselves; they need to be reminded that they're hired help. As the past while has demonstrated they've far too often become corrupt and/or incompetent hired help, but hired help nonetheless. AND THEY NEED TO BE REMINDED OF IT.

One of the bastards who sold you out smiles and holds out his hand, tell him you just washed. He starts to lecture you, tell him you don't take lectures from crooked hired hands. Yeah, people around him will bitch and whine and threaten: their own sense of importance is tied in to people bowing down to The Rep. or The Senator. Tough shit. Don't let them get away with it. They're on an interview show, call in and make the point that they weren't sent there to sell out for some appointment or other federal job, and don't let them talk around it.

And if you can, record it, and post it. Make sure word gets around, so every time the bastard tries to weasel-word or threaten, everybody and their grandma can watch or listen to it.

That's what comes to mind for me. On the less messy side.

By the way, if the IRS thinks people are pissed at them NOW, and say nasty things,

just wait till they're the enforcers for Obamacare; THEN they'll hear and get nasty.

I seem to be turning into a test & report site

I wrote to Remington about the inconsistency of some of the .22 ammo lately, and they, unlike S&W, replied. Sent a shipping label & instructions to return the stuff for testing.

We'll see what they find.

Couple of years back the tailgate handle on my truck broke,

and being unwilling to give Ford $50+tax for this piece of molded plastic and two screws, I repaired it. Well, last night the damn thing broke again. In a different place; my fix is still solid.

So I did some browsing around, and found a place that has a STEEL replacement, that with shipping is going to be about $32 less than the PLASTIC Ford part.

You know, I'd like to know what moron decided that making this part out of plastic was a good idea: "We can save two or three cents each this way! And then screw the customer when it breaks and he needs a new one!"

And, since I'm bitching about plastic, Sig and their Trailside magazines. Damn things are molded polymer, the only steel in them is the spring, and they cost more than premium 1911 magazines. No reason for that.

Oh yeah, I'm pissed

At the open socialists and the useful idiots in the house- in the case of Stupak more like 'useful backstabbers'- who thought they could pretend to hold to what the people who vote tell them while simultaneously kissing Pelosi and Obama ass. Oh yeah, I'm pissed.

These people better be very happy we're not the people they lie about us being; if we were, there would already be broken windows and broken bones. Maybe a few bodies.

We're not going to forget you, not any single one of you God-damned betrayers. You liars.

I'm leaning toward that line from Next of Kin: "You ain't seen trouble yet; but it's comin'."

Oh, and anybody who thinks calling them socialists is mean, or wrong? The RWPP Sharpton let the cat out, so they've admitted exactly what they are.

I'm taking a detour from politics so I don't destroy my digestion

to look at something really interesting:
Researchers at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), which is the research and development arm of the Ministry of Defence, claim it is possible to incorporate material known as supercapacitors into armour of a vehicle to turn it into a kind of giant battery.

When a threat from incoming fire is detected by the vehicle, the energy stored in the supercapacitor can be rapidly dumped onto the metal plating on the outside of the vehicle, producing a strong electromagnetic field.

Scientists behind the project claim this would produce a momentary "force field" capable of repelling the incoming rounds and projectiles
So in best case(I'm thinking) the field could deflect, say, an RPG round so it misses, or- actually also a best case- fry the fuse so it won't fire, which means dud bouncing off the armor. Very nice idea.

According to Ace, Rep. Stupak(Sorry Whore) has found his price

and sold out.

Fuck the tar and feathers, let's just go straight to ropes when they come out.

And they have to come out eventually.

I'm not all that fond of Theodore Roosevelt, but

he did have some interesting things to say. For instance, contrast what he said with what Obama's administration is doing:

“I believe that a man must be a good patriot before he can be, and as the only possible way of being, a good citizen of the world. Experience teaches us that the average man who protests that his international feeling swamps his national feeling, that he does not care for his country because he cares so much for mankind, in actual practice proves himself the foe of mankind; that the man who says that he does not care to be a citizen of any one country, because he is the citizen of the world, is in fact usually and exceedingly undesirable citizen of whatever corner of the world he happens at the moment to be in. In the dim future all moral needs and moral standards may change; but at present, if a man can view his own country and all others countries from the same level with tepid indifference, it is wise to distrust him, just as it is wise to distrust the man who can take the same dispassionate view of his wife and mother. However broad and deep a man’s sympathies, however intense his activities, he need have no fear that they will be cramped by love of his native land.”–Teddy Roosevelt

Ed Morrissey:

Army Times: The Obama administration says flying the flag could give Haiti the wrong idea.

“We are not here as an occupation force, but as an international partner committed to supporting the government of Haiti on the road to recovery,” the U.S. government’s Haiti Joint Information Center said in response to a query about the flag.

In the immediate aftermath of the quake and our initial response, France accused the US of conducting a de facto “occupation” of Haiti. Not surprisingly, Venezuela and Nicaragua followed suit. Ironically, the French don’t seem terribly concerned with flying their flag over Haiti despite their status as its original colonizer.

The decision not to fly the flag is an embarrassment of weakness on the part of Obama. Our nation has conducted relief efforts for decades through our military, saving millions of people from death, disease, and starvation. Like France, Britain, and Croatia, we have flown our flag during those operations not to note occupation but to represent the American people’s solidarity with those suffering from disaster. That historical record is answer itself to the lunatics in Venezuela, Nicaragua, and even France who indulge in paranoid hysteria.

Fly the flag, Mr. President. Let our actions speak for themselves, but demonstrate that we aren’t ashamed to arrive anywhere in the world with that flag flying proudly.

I just made the mistake of turning on channel 13,

the local PBS station, and found that they're doing one of their fundraising weeks.*


And my timing brought it up in the middle of some doctor whose answer for almost every ill is diet. As in "Meat is bad. Chicken is bad. Fish is bad. Olive oil is bad. Be vegetarian at least, preferably vegan and your health will be wonderful."

The knowledge that money is being taken out of my pocket in taxes to pay for this propaganda just makes the knowledge that the House Soviet is voting to try to steal the rest of my life even more of a pissed-off thing.

*"Yes, we get tax money, but we want even more, so we'll spend a week selling overpriced crap to try to guilt you into giving it to us."

On the 'breaking windows' post,

Stormbringer has this to say, with arguing in the comments.

This whole thing keeps percolating in the back of my mind. I've got a pretty good idea what the media and the socialists in DC(and some state capitals) will say and do if it begins; as the previous post on the 'racism' accusation notes much of the major media has no problem lying about anyone who defies The Obama and his minions so we'll never get a fair shake there. And considering the number of crapweasels meeting in DC today to vote who apparently don't care if they get reelected so long as they shove this down our throats- combined with the corrupting influence of being in DC- I don't know as the elections in November will really help; even if you replace every boob who votes 'yes' AND every boob you suspect of voting 'no' only because he got permission from Pelosi, trying to dump this socialized medicine scheme may be damn near impossible(see 'corrupt media' and 'corrupt politicians' above). So is there anything left, short of breaking things, that just might cause these people to understand just how far over the line they've gone?

Guys, I don't want to start breaking windows; I hate the thought of it. I also hate the thought of the bastards in DC and their little minions who've decided that they're privileged to order my life for me no matter what I think. I keep coming back to "Where's the Line? How do I know it's beyond words and demonstrations and we need to DO something?"

One of the things that most distresses me in this shit is that I've come to have a great lack of trust and confidence in our law enforcement and justice system. Far too many who carry the badge will carry out orders they know are in violation of the Constitution because they're more worried about getting yelled at by their supervisor or fired than damaging or destroying someones life; too many in the federal levels will carry out those illegal orders because they know the System will protect them, just like it protected Horiuchi. And too many of the politicians we used to have trust in have become so corrupted that we just cannot trust them AT ALL.

Remember the screaming by Stupid Party politicians when that crooked Representative's office was searched by the FBI? Proper search warrant, actual corruption investigation, and these bastards screaming that THEIR offices cannot be searched, No Sir! WE are special, WE are not like some commoner whose office and home can be searched! Do these idiots have any idea, any at all, just how many people said 'Screw these clowns' and walked away from the Stupid Party over that final straw? Do they even bleeping CARE?

Speaking of the Stupid Party, it's headed by that moron Steele. Who decided to announce that the criticism of some of his actions was based on his being black. Think he has any idea how many people he pissed off? How much he damaged that party? Does he actually care?

The Evil Party most of us have just flat given up on. It's dominated by people like Pelosi and Obama and his little terrorist and communist friends and the unions who collectively don't give a rats shaved ass for what ANYBODY thinks, so long as they have power; it'd take the equivalent of a Magnitude 9.8 quake to make any real change there.

Folks, I don't have any solid conclusion. Just that while I'd much rather get their attention more gently part of me really thinks we ought to be warming up the tar right now- hell, should have a roofers trailer already heated up and sitting in front of the House with a trailer full of pillows next to it, waiting for them to come out.

Some of the signs in pictures at Malkin's place:

Party like it's 1773
Reduce your government footprint
and my favorite,
You can't fix stupid, but you can vote it out

The other day, commenting on the TEA party post,

Marty mentioned reports of racist comments being thrown at a politician. My first thought was '5'll get you 20 it's bullshit', and sure enough,
A CNN reporter, yes, CNN, the home of the infamous Susan Rosegen, claimed to have heard racist slurs and shouts; other bloggers picked it up. I mean, if you’re going to smear a group of people by claiming that they were shouting slurs, perhaps make sure you don’t post video that completely refutes your claim and makes you look like a race hustler. Just saying.
Yep, our professional DC-whore major media doing what it seems to do as a specialty: smearing people with crap for the offense of not kissing up to the 'right' politicians.

Oh, CNN? We'll remember; just like we'll remember who voted what this day. And we won't forgive.
