Rep. Darrell Issa(Stupid Party-CA) is either badly misspeaking,

or showing his word isn't worth crap.

You don't live up to your promises, I think you'll be out of that taxpayer-supplied chair at the next election.

The outrage came to light

at the training base when civilian MoD cops ran a practical training session on what to do if Afghan police found a missing child. The Brits were shocked not one officer went to calm a child in the session - until recruits told them of the sick trick of using tiny tots as triggers.
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
TWISTED Taliban killers used a TWO-YEAR-OLD girl as the trigger for a bomb which killed her and five Afghan police, The Sun can reveal.

The terrorists stood the frightened toddler on the device and ordered her not to move.

Worried Afghan National Police raced to help the screaming child and when they picked her up to comfort her the bomb detonated. As well as claiming six lives the blast also injured a bystander.

Why yes, Mr. Codrea, I will pass along a demonstration of the Philadelphia PD

being heavy-handed jerks who either need time on the ground and retraining in their duties, or new jobs.

And please take note of this from Sgt. Ray Evers, and arrogant bastard who should be demoted. At least.
"The gun has been taken because when you go through the process of arrest, we have the right to take your gun and secure it and you have to fight to get it back," he said. "If the cops tell you to move four times and you don't move, what do you expect?"
I'd expect you to OBEY THE LAW YOU SWORE TO UPHOLD, you miserable excuse for a lawman; THAT'S what I would expect.

But apparently police in Philadelphia aren't concerned about little things like that.

There's enough crap to do, I'm wondering how

I did all this crap when I was working full-time? Or did I?

In any case, after a while of cursing and threateningworking on it, I got the tiller running well enough to work in the load of manure I got the other day. Between that, some more I'll get later and the compost heaps the dirt ought to be in pretty good shape for the garden next year. Add into that packing a box and getting to the Post Office, picking up and delivering a table for daughter, doing laundry and something I can't remember right now- just remembered, turning a piece down in the lathe, how did I get this all done before? Damn.

Also, just how many levels of effing stupidity and bad trainingfail can you pick out in this?
According to the police report, Glickauf went to First Presbyterian Church of Valparaiso, 3401 Valparaiso St., to pick up his 5-year-old son from school. He was in his vehicle in the parking lot just before 2:30 p.m. when he decided not to alarm any other parents by walking in with his firearm on his hip. He also did not want to leave a loaded gun unattended in the vehicle.

He ejected the magazine from the gun, ejected the round from the chamber, and reinserted the ejected round back into the magazine, he told police. He then attempted to put the magazine back in the gun but it didn't fit right. Not being familiar with the Smith & Wesson Springfield .40-caliber handgun, although he said it was his personal gun that he also uses for work, "he thought if he pulled the trigger the magazine would seat properly," Glickauf told police.

Instead, the gun fired and the bullet went into his upper left thigh.
Well, Number One, you only THOUGHT you cleared the chamber.


Just in case any Stupid Party brass every see this site,

I think I'm going to occasionally start things with this:
We're watching. We're going after more RINOs next election. And any newly-elected who start playing like the old ones, well, they'll be out on their ass, too. You clowns need to remember that.

Well, the people who listen to Lott are those who WANT every Stupid Party member to be a compromising RINO, because it lets them buy influence; screw you, Lott.

Closeup of a comet; very cool.

Ace has some general financial roundup; some of which is enough to make you check the price on that coil of rope. Remember, buy good stuff so it can be used on multiple corrupt ratbag politicians and bureaucratssubjects. Speaking of which...

Oh, have you noticed that Obama is running around saying the whole Evil Party Getting Whacked election was due to him 'not selling his actions well enough'? Oh, we know what you're up to, Mr. President, and we don't like it; and we're damn well not buying your crap. I've got a tub of REAL cow manure outside for the garden, and it's worth a lot more than your lies and socialist crap.

No, you can't get away with banning ammunition. Bad public servants; hand me my whip.

You know, you read more and more things like this, and they lead to only two conclusions:
1: the clowns in DC and their high-level enablers were too damn stupid to see this, or
2: the clowns in DC and their high-level enablers WANT the US to go bankrupt.
The only real choices in what to do with them are, depending on which it is,
Fire them and ban them from ever handling public money or holding public office ever again, or
Since wanting to destroy the country ought to count as treason, imprison or hang them.

Among the reasons I despise John Effing Kerry and those like him:
Now, in case you forgot, Kerry’s yacht is a New Zealand-built Friendship sloop with an Edwardian-style, glossy varnished teak interior, two VIP main cabins and a pilothouse fitted with a wet bar and cold wine storage. We point this out because the excise tax on boats is $10 per thousand of valuation. However, the state caps the assessment on yachts over 60 feet that are less than four years old at $50,000. Which, if you ask us, seems rather foolish . . .

So, the $7 million Isabel, for excise tax purposes, is worth just $50G, meaning, should Kerry decide to pony up, he’d owe just $500 to the island’s tax coffers. Chump change for Jawn and Ta-ray-za!

Anyway, Kerry’s flack Jodi Seth told us the senator hasn’t paid because he hasn’t received a bill. Which is very different from what Kerry said last summer. Back then the story was that the senator would pay all the taxes as if the boat were berthed in Massachusetts.

“Whether owed or not, we intend to pay the equivalent taxes as if the boat’s home port were currently in Massachusetts,” Kerry said at the time. “That payment is being made promptly.”

Apparently not
Remember: taxes are for little people like us, not important people like Kerry.

Ok, read the second and third parts: THAT'S going to throw a weasel in the henhouse.

I will close this morning with reason why A: you should read Tam and B: one of the glorious side-effects of the election:
Anyhow, over the bar was a television, muted so that the soft rock radio station could be heard, with its Police and its Beatles. And on this television was President Barack Obama, apparently mouthing a speech about the events of last night, the night upon which his jackass party was beaten like the proverbial rented mule.

Now, the party that has retaken power in Congress may do nothing. At best I fear yesterday's election was a band-aid on a sucking chest wound, and at worst they'll go right back to getting all knotted up in rearranging the "family values" and "law'n'order" deck chairs while the USS Dollar continues to slip beneath the waves... But while I was eating lunch I watched the Brat Prince keep trying to strike his favorite chin-uplifted Mussolini pose, with its haughty "Who farted?" moue of confident disdain, but it wouldn't stick, and his facial expression kept drifting back to one that looked like a man chewing on a cat turd.

Rarely have I felt so warm inside, and yesterday's vote was totally worth it, if for nothing other than seeing that look on the face of "The Won". Sure, it's the politics of schadenfreude, but I'm only human after all

With this election over, and while we're wondering if we'll need the ropes

due to the lame-duck session, we now return to some of our general WHAT?
A Zimbabwean was has been killed by a pride of lions while he was showering in a camp in the country's north.
Og? You still there?

Well, you keep threatening to arrest people at the demand of the palisimians, you're going to have fewer visitors.
Israel has expressed anger that, in the past, ministers and senior military figures have had to cancel visits to the UK because of concerns that pro-Palestinian groups might use the courts to seek their arrest over Israeli military action in Gaza, or this year's raid on a Gaza-bound aid ship in which nine Turkish activists were killed.

Pro-Palestinian campaigners have tried several times to have Israeli officials arrested under the principle of universal jurisdiction, which holds that some alleged crimes are so grave that they can be tried anywhere, regardless of where the offences were committed
Yeah. Arrest someone for something that happened in another place WAAAY outside your jurisdiction... Not a good idea to start, folks.

You know why Barney Frank is still in office? Because so many people in MA are so effing stupid.
Hamilton-Wenham Regional High School Senior Dan Depaolis, dressed in medieval garb, rode a horse into the school's parking lot as part of spirit week.

What he, and his parents, thought was a good-natured stunt, the school deemed dangerous. Depaolis was suspended from school for two days.
The father tells FOX25 the school compared the stunt to bringing a “loaded firearm” to school and that he and his wife were shocked to hear about the suspension, saying that the 1100-pound horse, named Pierre, would never hurt a fly

Why some US Attorneys should be among those tarred and feathered. Also the judges who help them commit this crap.

Whoo, the gent from Mass Backwards won! Excellent!

You too can make your effing damn longMosin Nagant into a bullpup!

Ok, a laser or gps-guided mini-bomb that can be carried by the buttload on drones... the possibilities are endless.

One last thing, which is political: here in OK question 744 went down. As in about 82% against. This was the "Screw everything else, give the schools all the money they want, with no real accountability for the spending and no worrying about where the money will come from" bill. A lot of the 'pro' crap was on this level: the radio commercial had some announcer reading and then asking "Is this real? We're not spending anywhere NEAR enough!", etc. after each section, ending with "WHO could be against 744?" The answer? "A lot of greedy people, Frank."

Do these clowns have any freakin' idea how offensive that is? Standard "If you don't vote for this you're greedy and don't care about the CHILDREEEN!! and SCHOOLS!!!" crap. I'd bet that commercial alone pissed off a lot of people. Screw 'em, we don't trust the education people anywhere near enough to even consider handing them money this way.

I now leave you to your own devices.

To the Republican Party

This is pretty much your last chance: you start acting like Evil Party Lite again(the backroom deals with Democrats, the spending, the bribes and kickbacks- more formally known as 'earmarks'- to buy votes) and there WILL be a third party in the next election.

You'd better believe it.

Dammit, I wish I'd seen this BEFORE Halloween

SHACKLEFORD: You know, Anne Rice started it, with her brooding, sensitive vampires. Come on, pre-crazy Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in one movie? That’s some man candy. Then you got Twilight, oh barf, where sparkly vampires don’t want to eat you, they just want to be loved and all that EXPLETIVE DELETED. It sends the wrong message to young women. What kind of hundred year old hangs out a high school to pick up dates? Weirdo pedophiles. That’s who. Real vampires love those books. It makes picking up victims much easier.

PL: Really?

SHACKLEFORD: Absolutely. Speaks directly to camera. Listen, girls. I know you like that whole ‘bad-boy-but-I-can-change-him’ thing, but real life vampires aren’t sensitive, they aren’t sparkly, and they don’t want to be your boyfriend. They want to eat you. Sucking your blood is not a euphemism, they literally want to suck your blood… out of your body. You kind of need that to, oh, not die. With vampires, when somebody says don’t forget to wear protection, we’re talking about body armor. The rates of vampire attacks have risen dramatically over the last few years against gullible teenagers because you’re just making this easier for them. Looks back at reporter. Hypothetically.

PL: Of course.

SHACKLEFORD: Looks back to camera. Vampires love you about as much as you love a Big Mac, honey. Deal with it.

Due to popular demand,*

daughter gave permission for her soup recipe to be posted

Broccoli Cheddar Soup (base recipe)

1/4 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
3/4 cup chicken broth
1 1/2 cup milk
1 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 cup shredded cheddar

Saute the onion in butter until tender
Stir in flour, salt & pepper, cook and stir until smooth and bubbly
Add broth and milk all at once, cook and stir until mixture boils and thickens
Add broccoli. Simmer, stirring constantly, until heated through
Remove from heat and stir in cheese until melted

That's the base. She usually(I did) double the amount of cheese; as she says "Why not?" She has also, as I did this time, fried up some chicken and shredded it and then added it same time as the cheese. And if you've got it and it sounds good, you can fry up some bacon, chop it up and dump some on top just before serving. Or into your bowl just before eating. She's also thrown in some sliced mushrooms and garlic with the onion; lots of stuff you can do with it.

*Which means 'somebody actually read the post and asked'

Oh HELL yeah!

The warning to Republicans
Either act like adults charged with the responsible management of this country, instead of drunken teenagers with mom’s credit card, or we will un-elect you at the first opportunity.

Have a nice day.

And remember: when you vote against him, the Lightworker gets pissed off and progressives shed brain cells
So get out there and VOTE

Totally unrelated to politics, daughter gave me a recipe for broccoli cheddar soup

and I made a batch. DAMN, that's good.

They're a fine demonstration of how untrustworthy and bigoted the major media is

In today's "the MSM is worse than you thought possible" news, one media outlet is caught on tape plotting to tie Joe Miller to child molesters, while another "forgets" to run Christine O'Donnell's big 30-minute ad... twice. The day before the election. Reality truly is stranger than fiction sometimes -- if you wrote this kind of media bias into a script people would tell you it was too crazy to believe. And yet it happened.
Andrew Breitbart had been asked to participate in some sort of "digital townhall" and provide commentary during the night. After the typical caterwauling of the censors of the left, ABCNews has withdrawn the offer, apparently, or at least guaranteed to the lefties that Breitbart will not appear on TV. After ABC claimed he was never to appear on TV -- they claimed he would just be hanging out at the online forum or something -- Breitbart produced an email from them contradicting them.

Remember: every time you remember one of these
and vote against him, a progressive cries.

If Obama had a real level of integrity,

this would at least bother and probably scare hell out of him.

Unfortunately I fear he and his advisers probably consider it a 'fitting tribute' or something.

A: Free people don't kneel to politicians.
B: Politicians who like being knelt to should be removed from office at the first opportunity.

Three pieces you really ought to read

I'll borrow a small bit from Part 1:
There is one aspect of CSGV's(Coalition to Stop Gun Violence) philosophy, though, that I now realize I had completely misunderstood. The strongest reason for their aversion to gun rights isn't "gun violence," or the supposed threat of "right wing terrorism" (although they exploit both of those to the maximum extent possible)--it's that they believe that a strong-willed, vigilant citizenry, prepared to say "No!" to government excess, and equipped to back that denial up, is right now impeding the "progressive" agenda.

Part 2:

These events provided ample political cover for the cabinet to declare a state of emergency and suspend the individual liberties guaranteed by the Weimar Constitution. The rights to free speech and free press, free association, and privacy, among others, no longer existed.

What the book doesn't talk about there is that the authority to enact such sweeping powers was codified in the Weimar Constitution in Article 48. Horwitz's reticence on that little detail is perhaps not too surprising, given the fact that Article 48's insertion in the Weimar Constitution was largely the work of Max Weber--the very same Max Weber cited so frequently and so admiringly by Horwitz in explaining why the government must have a monopoly on force. Well, the Nazi government certainly had that.

and Part 3:

Isolate the Insurrectionists by embracing the self-defenders and the sporting gun owners. The fact remains that most gun owners are not Insurrectionists. The majority of gun owners keep guns primarily for self-protection or recreation, not to prepare for some future Armageddon. Insurrectionists do not deserve the cover provided them by self-defenders and sporting gun owners.
Wait a second here . . . "embrace the self-defenders"? Are they planning to tell these self-defenders that until 1989, the group's name was not the "Coalition to Stop Gun Violence," but the "National Coalition to Ban Handguns"? How about the fact that the name change was motivated not by a loss of interest in banning handguns, but by a desire to expand the mission to banning so-called "assault weapons," too? From "Disarmed: The Missing Movement for Gun Control in America," by Kristin A. Gross:
In that year [1989], the National Coalition to Ban Handguns changed its name to Coalition to Stop Gun Violence to reflect its view that assault rifles, as well as handguns, should be outlawed.
Go read them; good look at the gun bigots and progressives(or should this just be shortened to 'fascists'?) real thoughts and intentions

Thanks to the man at Sipsey Street for pointing these out.

And part 2 now properly linked

If this guy is serious, my first thoughts are

"What the HELL are you smoking out there?" followed by "Just what have your friends been dumping in the water?"
Conservatives will be shocked to learn that in her backyard, Pelosi is not widely viewed as truly representing our core liberal to progressive values. She's all sizzle and no steak on pro-peace politics, gay rights, ending the AIDS drug waiting list crisis, preserving the environment and other important local concerns. Pelosi is from San Francisco, but her real constituency has been her more rightwing House colleagues.
Um, yeah. Right. Just let me back away...

Seriously, what kind of mindset does it take to write something like that with a straight face? And apparently believe it?
