I'm going to start with Tam saying

Go piss on an electric fence, hippie.
As a follow on, I especially like this line:
Like Communists before them, they are actively subverting the Constitution and the American Dream, and replacing it with a Kleptocratic Nightmare.
Isn't it nice to have a noisy leftist openly admitting what the commies were/are all about?

Speaking of leftists/enviroweenies/terrorists,
When UCLA neuroscientist J. David Jentsch was a grad student, he never expected his life as an academic would require around-the-clock armed guards, or a closed-circuit TV inside his bedroom so he could keep constant watch over his home.

But the high-powered security proved necessary again this month when the researcher, who experiments on monkeys, opened a letter left in his mailbox to discover razor blades and a death threat.
But the 38-year-old professor has been through this before. Last year, he woke up to an orange flash and a car alarm. He ran outside to find his car had been blown up.

Twice a month, animal rights activists in ski masks gather outside his home, chanting "murder." On Halloween, neighborhood trick-or-treaters were handed flyers with images of bloodied animal subjects.

"If you go to the house down the street, there's a monster who lives there," children were told.

Under the heading of Hot Damn!,
Mortars dropped smoke grenades into the enemy bunker to "flush them out" and a few minutes later an American F15 jet screamed down making the first of three strafing runs landing cannon shells 50 yards from the soldiers.

"The rounds were literally snapping over our heads," said Lt Whitlam. "But we are Para Reg so we went forward and finished the job."

Apparently Department of Homeland Security thinks they have terrorism so under control that they can spend time and money screwing with websites for possible copyright infringement;
A: If it's so under control, how the hell did this happen?
B: If they've got this much time and money to spend on crap, then their budget needs cutting.

And finally for this evening, why the palisimians not only don't deserve a state, another reason they should not be considered civilized human beings:
Palestinian officials have condemned the decision by the Israeli government to renovate the Western Wall plaza.

Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said that the Wall is part of occupied eastern Jerusalem and that its historic, cultural, and religious characteristics must not be changed.

PA Deputy Information Minister Al-Mutawakkil Taha stated in a study he published that the Wall is Islamic Waqf and an integral part of Al-Aqsa mosque, that the Jews have no historical religious ties to it, and that not a single stone or grain of soil from it or from the other holy sites can be relinquished
Jews have 'no historical or religious ties' to the Western Wall. I wonder if this lying bastard has actually made himself believe this crap, or he's just lying in the good cause of hurting Jews?

'Tis the- well, I guess ANY season is right for the idiot Jimmy Carter

to start yapping again for tolerance for murderous dictators. Too bad South Korea isn't largely Jewish; then Carter could REALLY get behind the Norks.

I'm interrupting this holiday for a very interesting observation

from Phelps:
First of all, if they really had the authority to do this, they never would have worried about it. Here’s a thought experiment. Suppose a police officer (you know, a real law enforcement officer) decides to, with legal authority, give you a pat down. A real patdown involves more than just brushing the genitals. It involves a full on groping, by necessity.

Tell that cop, “if you touch my junk, I’ll have you arrested for sexual assault.” What is that cop going to do? He’s going to say, “tell it to the judge” and then he’s going to do his pat down anyways. Why? Because he actually has authority. The TSA balked. You know why? They
know they don’t have the authority to do this.

Thanksgiving dinner was excellent,

and I did not require a dolly to get around afterward, And It Was Good.

Just happened across this, which brings back the lesson: Piss off the farmer at your peril.

Happy Thanksgiving

I'm dining with family, and hope to avoid needing a dolly to get around after. In the meantime(I know, but this crap is important) I think this needs to be kept up front and remembered:
The next step in tightened security could be on U.S. public transportation, trains and boats.
“I think the tighter we get on aviation, we have to also be thinking now about going on to mass transit or to trains or maritime. So, what do we need to be doing to strengthen our protections there?”
And from the bastard Leiberman,
Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, introduced legislation this past September that would authorize testing of body scanners at some federal buildings.
Yes, because having to empty your pockets and take off your belt and go through at metal detector and whatever else they'd decided lately isn't making it enough of a pain in the ass to go into one of our buildings to do business.

Note this at the top of the article:
Editor's note: This story and its headline have been clarified to show that the Department of Homeland Security has not indicated it plans to use body scanners to tighten security at transportation sites beyond airports.
Well, isn't that comforting? '...has not indicated it plans...' You could drive a Ryder truck through the holes in that wording from Napolitano & Co.

I wonder how many of the people making excuses for this crap will like it when they're given the choice of irradiation or being felt up to get on a bus or subway? Not to mention "You can't take that on the bus/into the station/on the train."

As to the "You don't like it, take the train" crap- besides the fact you can't get a lot of places that way- is the general "Fuck you, we'll do what we want" attitude from these bastards. As to the train, did you know Amtrack won't let you take a firearm even as checked baggage like an aircraft? LAST YEAR a law was passed telling them to change that:
The Departments of Transportation and Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2010, enacted into law on December 16, 2009, requires Amtrak to implement the procedures necessary to provide storage and carriage of firearms in checked baggage cars and at Amtrak stations that accept checked baggage, within one year of the bill’s enactment. This requirement applies solely to checked baggage, not carry-on baggage.

Amtrak’s current policy prohibits all firearms, ammunition and other weapons aboard its trains. This includes any being carried on the person, in carry-on baggage or in checked baggage. Please be advised that this policy remains in effect until Amtrak begins firearms carriage in checked baggage on December 15, 2010; starting on this date all passengers wishing to check firearms or ammunition will be required to follow the Firearms Policy
'the Firearms Policy' being "You can't do that." All that was required to go with this law was "firearms have to be locked in the same type containers approved for airlines", but they've dragged this crap out for a year, and it wouldn't surprise me to have Biden's Bozos declare they need an extension 'for safety and security studies' or something.

Nice circular situation, isn't it? You have a right to travel, but if you want to use personal powered transport that's a 'privilege' for which you give up rights; Napolitano's Nitwits have now declared that flying isn't a transport choice, it's a Privilege for which you give up every right they think they can get away with stealing; and they want to pull the same crap on buses and trains and boats and subways. "You have the right to travel, but any travel except walking or a bicycle is a privilege. Oh, and walking into places we don't like you going is a privilege, too, so take off your clothes."
Every time we hear one of these stories, John Pistole runs for the cameras and reassures us that this isn't what is supposed to happen; that no one should be treated in this fashion or made to cry; that it shouldn't be regarded as a common occurrence or used as the basis to judge the whole program or the TSA; that they listen and are always adjusting their policy, and that--most importantly to him--we all must put up with these "enhanced searches" to keep terrorists from bringing down airplanes. And then it happens again. Each time, he circles back around to tough-talking bluster with that asinine, barely-disguised "everyone's a perp" mentality.

Bah. I'm going to try to avoid all this crap the rest of today.

You doubt this TSA and related crap is about control?

and that they want to punish anyone who causes a problem?
The terminology contained within the reported memo is indeed troubling. It labels any person who “interferes” with TSA airport security screening procedure protocol and operations by actively objecting to the established screening process, “including but not limited to the anticipated national opt-out day” as a “domestic extremist.” The label is then broadened to include “any person, group or alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel disruptions at U.S. airports in response to the enhanced security procedures.

For individuals who engaged in such activity at screening points, it instructs TSA operations to obtain the identities of those individuals and other applicable information and submit the same electronically to the Homeland Environment Threat Analysis Division, the Extremism and Radicalization branch of the Office of Intelligence & Analysis (IA) division of the Department of Homeland Security.

Got all that? But wait! There's MORE!!!
For “any person, group or domestic alternative media source” that actively objects to, causes others to object to, supports and/or elicits support for anyone who engages in such travel “disruptions” at U.S. airports (as defined above) in response to the enhanced security procedures, the [applicable DHS administrative branch] is instructed to identify and collect information about the persons or entities, and submit such information in the manner outlined [within this directive].
So. Big Sis Napolitano considers me, and Breda, and the Amputee Mom and EVERYONE ELSE who objects to or gives support to anyone who objects to the Touching Special Areas clowns 'domestic extremists'. And wants us on a list.

Any doubts remaining about what these people are?


There must be some seriously pissed-off people among the EUnuchs after hearing this

Deity knows they've needed pissing on for a long time

About Obama's "I don't think about Palin"

“I don’t think about Sarah Palin.”

I see his logic; I don’t think about the Yellowstone Caldera.


Found this linked by Breda

Her post here; I'm going to excerpt a chunk from Amputee Mommy's post:
I was instructed to remove my leg. I refused, stating that it was against procedure to insist that I remove my prosthetic. Another man was brought over, who lectured me about the increased security risk and the need to keep screening procedures current. He reiterated that the rules have changed, and that he needed my prosthetic. Looking at my frightened little boy and knowing that we were becoming pressed for time, I begrudgingly removed my leg and handed it to the rude agent. "What's that?" the man asked while pointing to my liner. I explained that it was my prosthetic liner, and that I wore it to keep my prosthetic attached. He insisted that he needed to run my liner through the machine as well. I don't think that the general public understands how personal a residual limb is to the amputee. It is on par with one's genitals. I simply don't remove my liner in public exposing my limb, and I was humiliated by the request. At this point, our plane was boarding. I had amassed a group of four TSA officers around me, and Robby was scared and in tears. I knew that what they were asking me to do was wrong, but I also knew that fighting at that moment would caused us to miss our plane. I just wanted to get home. I took off my liner. I sat quietly in a chair as onlookers and gawking passengers watched me expose one of my most personal features. I felt defeated and humiliated. My liner, which is supposed to be maintained in a hygienic manner, was thrown into a screening bin inside out and run through the machine. No care was given to sanitizing the container which I am sure is riddled with fecal matter and bacteria. I was given no opportunity or materials to clean the liner after it was contaminated. It was half-hazardly thrown into my lap as I was told that I could leave. I put my leg on and gave Robby a huge hug. We gathered our carry-on items which had been removed from our bags and strewn on a metal table. Tears were rolling down my face as I called my family for support.

Read it all. Breakables warning in effect, and the TSA assholes involved ought to be fired. At the least. If they're fucking professionals they should ACT like professionals, which means knowing what the hell they're doing when dealing with things like this.

This makes me feel SO safe and the thought of being molested

by the TSA so much better...

Oh yeah, I'm stealing this

Thank you

Insty pointed to this article about Sarah Palin:

short version "She's incompetent, stupid, wrong about everything yet I still like her!" It's kind of worth reading just for the hatred and disdain exposed toward conservatives and libertarians. And the comments...

I said it before: I'd like Palin if for no other reason than she pisses off all the right people.

So, according to Napolitano, trains and buses and subways

are a 'privilege' to travel on and you give up your rights when you buy a ticket...

I want you to consider what this shit- ignoring for the moment the 4th Amendment violations and such- is going to do to travel. And does Incompitano and Obama give a rats ass as long as they increase their power over us?

Ref the video of the kid being searched by the Touching Special Areas guys,

here's the defense from TSA's Blogger Bob:
On November 19, a family was traveling through a TSA checkpoint at the Salt Lake City International Airport (SLC). Their son alarmed the walk through metal detector and needed to undergo secondary screening. The boy’s father removed his son’s shirt in an effort to expedite the screening. After our TSO completed the screening, he helped the boy put his shirt back on. That’s it. No complaints were filed and the father was standing by his son for the entire procedure.
Except, from the guy who took video:
Lets get the facts straight first. Before the video started the boy went through a metal detector and didn’t set it off but was selected for a pat down. The boy was shy so the TSA couldn’t complete the full pat on the young boy. The father tried several times to just hold the boys arms out for the TSA agent but i guess it didn’t end up being enough for the guy. I was about 30 ft away so i couldn’t hear their conversation if there was any. The enraged father pulled his son shirt off and gave it to the TSA agent to search, thats when this video begins…
Before I could get to them a man in a black suit who had been talking with the other TSA officials approached me. He asked to speak to me and I obliged, wondering what was to come. He then proceeded to interrogate me about why I was videotaping the “procedures of the TSA”. I told him that I had never seen such practices before on a young child and decided to record it. The man being frustrated at this point demanded to know my plans with the video, of which I didn’t respond. Repeatedly he asked me to delete the video, hoping his mere presence could intimidate me to obey, but I refused.
My gate was a long way off, but about 15 minutes after arriving 2 TSA agents came and sat 15 feet or so away from me. I stood up and moved so that they were in front of me and then took a picture. A 3rd and then a 4th agent came and sat down with the others. They would occasionally glance at me and talk on their walkie-talkies. I don’t know why they were there or if it was a huge coincidence but they stayed for 30-45 minutes and left just before I boarded the plan. Interesting to say the least, intimidating? Maybe a little
And he's lucky;
Once Harbor Police arrested Wolanyk, he was handcuffed and paraded through two separate airport terminals in his underwear to the Harbor Police office located inside a different terminal at the airport than Wolanyk had originally gone through during his TSA security process.
A woman who was recording the incident was also arrested

Because it's the kind of post you need to look over again

and pass along, from Xavier:
Recognizing threats
Standing on the X

Well, yeah, a XTP or Gold Dot would do a world of good

for adjusting his attitude.

Found thanks to Tam

Only related since it involves attitude adjustment, hit the range today and put some through the .32 Hand Ejector; it really does put a smile on your face. However, I am going to have to put some paint on that front sight.

The judge who gave the injunction to prevent the Measure 755

vote being certified has extended her injunction for a week. And the CAIR clown is out whining that he's received mean and nasty e-mails from people(big surprise, huh?). Last line in the second link bothers me:
"I'm glad there are people who will stand up for others--will stand up for the culture of other people," added Mohammed.
Not 'stand up for the beliefs of' or 'religion of', 'for the culture of'. That bit of wording...

One of the ironic things about this? If there had been a measure saying "You can't consider the Bible or the Torah" in addition to or instead of state & federal law in trials, it'd be called unneeded, but that's about it; this measure says 'religious law, including sharia, or international or foreign law' and suddenly "This violates my freedom of religion!" and the Usual Suspects are all up in arms about racism(note: islam IS NOT A RACE, morons). Bullcrap.

Not connected other than in the 'threats to freedom' line, the Norks shelled a South Korean island, killing and injuring people.

In the TSA bullcrap,
In an hour-long discussion with reporters, Pistole said media officials at the Department of Homeland Security had urged him to "get out ahead" of the potential controversy by formally announcing plans for enhanced body searches and the use of new X-ray and radio-wave imaging devices at 70 airports beginning in November.

But doing so would have provided a "roadmap or blueprint for terrorists" to avoid detection by using other airports where the new technology wasn't in place, Pistole said.

Rather than publicize the changes, Pistole said he made a "risk-based" decision to roll it out first and "try to educate the public after we did that."

Translation: "I think flying is a privilege, and the peasants will do what they're told, or else; we don't need to give out this information. Besides, anybody causes problems, we'll punish them with fines and that'll shut them up." Maybe he really believed telling people what was coming would 'warn the terrorists'; if so, he's a fool for thinking the serious threats aren't looking for things like this already.

Also, flying only became a 'privilege' when you decided it was, you dirtbag; before that it was simply a travel option if you could afford it. And we're not your damn customers: a customer is somebody who seeks a service or product from you, therefore having a choice; we're not being given one. Screw you and every one of your clowns speaking of us as 'customers'.

The Andrew Traver "Scary black rifles should be banned from peasant ownership" video has shown up.

A 1911-based .410 autoloading pistol? Bleep.

Back to the TSA crap, the problem with the "You don't like it? Don't fly" line is that TSA has a hand in trains, too; so is taking a train a privilege also? That they can restrict as they choose? Where does that crap stop? "Using the Interstate Highway System is a privilege, not a right, so pull over and be searched"?

Bleah. I need some range time.

The following rebuttal is mine alone. I do not speak for my husband, for my friends, for my children, but solely for myself.

I am tired of being told to sit down and shut up.

I am tired of being told what I can and can not say.

What is “acceptable”, while my ideas and values are mocked and trampled.

Enough. I have had enough.
