someone would have burned down Al Gore’s mansion by now. And probably Tom Friedman’s, too.
Oh no, they only burn down the businesses and such of people who don't worship at their altar; the hypocrites who do are safe. And don't have to use the systems they want the serfs to be forced into.
"Oh, people are using air conditioners! And the commoners in other countries want them, and it's bad for Gaia! Should we ration them, or get rid of them entirely?"
I will give you one guess as to the words I'd say to every effing nanny out there. And I want them to stand in front of some worker in, say, India(their current "The peasants are revolting!" target) who just got a window unit and can actually sleep comfortably at night and tell him "We can't allow you to have this." I'd imagine the response would be either downright inventive, or very blunt.
House Speaker John Boehner said the GOP would likely take the “Fast and Furious” case to federal court in the next several weeks, on the heels of the House voting to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress.
Well, since the DoJ is taking marching orders from Holder & Obama and won't do squat, it's the only way anything will be done. And Romney is less likely to get in the way in the current circumstances.
Obamacare is a disaster. Imagine DMV supervisors, TSA employees, someone like an Eric Holder running the show, and taking a number at the emergency room, and you have the formula of dealing with your rendezvous with a tumor or heart attack.... Remember again: this was a plan that was sold as a mandate, not a tax; then argued by the administration before the Supreme Court as a tax; then found constitutional on the basis that it was a tax; and now defended on the basis that it is suddenly once again not a tax. Adolescents, not the president of the United States, make it up as they go along — mandate, tax, penalty, fee, etc.
Found over at Uncle's, about those 'The dog alerted so I can search' searches & seizures,
A group of Nevada Highway Patrol troopers and a retired police sergeant have filed a racketeering complaint against the NHP and Las Vegas Metro Police in U.S. District Court.
The complaint alleges that the drug-sniffing dogs used by troopers in the program were intentionally being trained to operate as so-called trick ponies, or dogs that provide officers false alerts for the presence of drugs.
The dogs were being trained to alert their handlers by cues, instead of by picking up a drug's scent by sniffing, the complaint said. When a dog gives a false alert, this resulted in illegal searches and seizures, including money and property, the complaint said.
Oh, this puts a weasel in the henhouse; can you imagine the lawsuits being looked at right now? And how many cases in the future this is going to be brought up in nationwide?
