Not summer yet, but we got shark hysteria

Great White Yarmouth is the headline, first two paragraphs
JAWS is stalking the coast of Norfolk, experts fear - after a porpoise was found mutilated by a giant shark.

Tooth-marks show that the bloodied mammal, a favourite food of great whites, was mauled in a feeding frenzy.
So a shark- POSSIBLY a white- kills a Flipper; this is big news?
Scientists could not rule out the man-killers being behind the attack on a stretch of coast popular for resorts like Great Yarmouth.
Or it might be one of the other kinds of sharks that eat things that swim.
The grim find was made just 26 miles from another suspected shark attack on a seal in 2008.
Oh, for Bleep's sake, people, go change your wet pants and shut the hell up.

Ok, first go read her story

here. Then I'll tell mine.

At the job I used to hold, we went through a long period of parts & replacement shortage combined with 'there ain't enough techs to handle everything in this building and all the other drops in short order', so even more than before trouble calls were classified into 1: they're down or dead and that's it, 2: this is a definite inconvenience but doesn't have to be fixed NOW, and 3: When we can get around to it.

Printers were generally a 2, as you could still run traffic, and if you really needed to print something almost everyone had other printers somewhere in the office or building; put the message on a disk or flash drive and go to it. But some people tended to see any problem of THEIRS as being a 1. A BIG 1. Which led to the call I'm thinking of; coming in toward the end,
"I've got the trouble ticket open, but like I said it'll be at least tomorrow, probably the day after before they can get out there."
"But we're very busy, and I need it fixed tonight!"
"We don't open priority 1 tickets on printers."
"What'm I supposed to do?!?", flash drive, etc. Steadily more unhappy dispatcher. Finally,
"I Want It Fixed Tonight!"
"I want my hair back, but that's not likely to happen either."
There was about three seconds of silence, then he hung up.
I waited about a week to see if my supervisor would wander back and ask "Did you say that? And why?", but he never did, so either the guy didn't bitch or supervisor, who was a pretty good guy, figured out the backstory.

And no, the 'job I used to hold' has nothing to do with this or anything like it. I swear.

A: Her mom gives lessons to ninjas

on how to handle pain.
B: That dentist should have been preparing his funeral plans.

Sitting on the mantle at my parents house is an odd-looking pair of pliers. Reasons they're odd-looking:
They're about a hundred years old and
They're dentists pliers. For pulling teeth.
They belonged to my great-grandfather the blacksmith. So many people came to him to have teeth pulled that he ordered them from somewhere back East(wouldn't surprise me if it was Sears, Roebuck).
You look at those, and think "Blacksmith, no anesthetic, eeeeeesh.....

Well, from the look of it the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence is on the side

of the enemy.
And the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence’s conclusion?
What should have been a fistfight became a tragedy.
Apparently people are supposed to not use firearms for any lawful propose, especially not to defend yourself against thugs out to beat and rob you.

And they wonder why so many people oppose their agenda.

Sen. Lautenberg(NSD-NJ), how do I despise thee?

Let's add another way.
U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) stood with, and was applauded by, Planned Parenthood supporters and state lawmakers and said, "They [Tea Party Republicans and the majority of Americans who don't want their tax dollars funding Planned Parenthood] don't deserve the freedoms in the Constitution, but we'll give it to them anyway."
Lautenberg, you miserable little bastard, you don't give me my freedoms; you can only try to take them away.

Maybe we should start putting little name stickers on lampposts?

I should note that Dr. Ed Shadid,

one of the people running for City Council, never has answered my last question.

If you're not familiar with this, a while back I sent to him and another candidate asking if they agreed with the CoP that anyone who owns a 'assault weapon' should have to register it. The other guy, Swinton, said he disagreed with the Chief. This is what I got from Shadid:
I apologize in the delay of response. I heard the comments by the Chief and Police and have been thinking a lot about it lately. We need to have a balance between public safety and the right to bear arms. Our constitution was designed to protect rights not take away from them. Let me know if I can ever be of service. Thanks for you questions.
A bothersome answer; usually when a politician says something like that he means "I agree with the Chief but don't have the guts to say it flat-out." So I sent back
Sir, maybe I should have phrased the question differently: do you agree with the Police Chief on this?
And so far no answer at all. Which could mean they're backed up and haven't gotten to it; more likely he just doesn't want to answer a 'yes or no' question on the matter.

My, wasn't FDR a wonderful guy

for engineering societies?
The transcript of those discussions, which Dr. Medoff cites, reveals what FDR said about the status of the 330,000 Jews living in Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia: “The number of Jews engaged in the practice of the professions (law, medicine, etc) should be definitely limited to the percentage that the Jewish population in North Africa bears to the whole of the North African population…The President stated that his plan would further eliminate the specific and understandable complaints which the Germans bore toward the Jews in Germany, namely, that while they represented a small part of the population, over fifty percent of the lawyers, doctors, school teachers, college professors, etc., in Germany, were Jews.”

Syria appears to be going to hell

possibly with Iranian help.

Probably no way this will end without a lot of bloodshed. After all, not only does boy Assad have a bit of history to live up to, but the Muslim Brotherhood(y'know, that secular, non-violent group) is probably in it up to its collective neck this time, too.

I'm real close to despising Unique

The propellant, that is. It's very useful; for a number of cartridges and loads it's the 'go-to' stuff for best accuracy. And they improved it a few years back so it's a lot cleaner-burning. But it's still a pain in the ass.

I have yet to see a powder measure it'll go through and consistently give the same amount. You'll go along and get anywhere from two to a dozen exact measures and then you'll get one(or three, or five) that are light. Not just a touch, mind you, but tenths of a grain off. Occasionally more. And if you keep throwing charges and checking suddenly it'll be exactly on the setting again. And then may give a few that are slightly high.

Pain In The Ass.

Hopefully I'll someday find a way to cause this stuff to meter consistently and precisely, until then it'll continue to be a great big PITA.

Ref the Washington SP fishing expedition,

I finally got around to reading the whole apology letter. First two paragraphs:
You all have likely received e-mails and/or phone calls from constituents who are questioning why the Washington State Patrol is inquiring about recent gun sales, specifically involving AR-15 rifles.

The WSP has a rifle that is unaccounted for from our inventory and we cannot discount the possibility that it was stolen. Out of an abundance of caution, we opened a criminal investigation and entered the weapon into the statewide computer system as stolen. As we do in virtually every investigation, we sought information from people we considered knowledgeable, in this case, licensed gun dealers.
Really. Well, here's the letter:
So if they lost track of a rifle, and were just 'seeking information', why the HELL would they ask for all that information? As opposed to, say, "Have you seen this AR15, ser#X, in the past while?"

So, we have two choices: they lost a rifle and somebody panicked and asked for a bunch of information that A: they didn't need and B: was none of their damned business.
Or they went on a fishing expedition to start(or expand?) a database they've got no business having and got caught and this is their excuse. Either way, this looks like hell.

So Van Jones is an even bigger dirtbag

than I previously knew. And the Huffington Farts doesn't like it being pointed out.

First, a mass-shooting at a school would be a number of things

but a 'disaster' it is not; second, is this really the best background they could think of?

I mean 'best' as in 'factual', not as in 'suits the current administrations and liberals personal bigotries'.

Students were sent home with permission slips to participate in the exercise. One parent whose daughter was slated to participate in the mock drill, after reading the proposed scenario, expressed concern over the scenario and its perceived anti-white, pro-illegal immigrant stance. He was told by the local EMS coordinator in charge that his daughter was no longer allowed to participate in the drill and that she nor her father were allowed to be on site on the day of the drill.

Why I think Energy Secretary Dr. Stephen Chu

should have a lamppost reserved for him. One bit:
Gasoline prices in Europe are currently about $10 per gallon ($200 to fill a 20 gallon fuel tank). Mr. Chu believes that artificially increasing gas prices will force Americans into smaller cars, public transportation and other situations more in line with the thinking of environmentalists. According to the WSJ:

Mr. Chu has called for gradually ramping up gasoline taxes over 15 years to coax consumers into buying more-efficient cars and living in neighborhoods closer to work.”
Yeah, screw you getting to decide where you live. Except for "Comrade, you can choose whichever apartment you wish! As long as the Committee approves your choice."
Consider Sec. Chu’s 2008 comments and their implications: Gas at $10 a gallon, forcing Americans to buy “more-efficient” (small) cars, forcing Americans to live closer to work. These are the ideas of an Ivy-tower, self-styled elite who have never lived or worked in the real world, a world where only a small portion of the population can live within electric car range of work. Public transportation, by the way, is commonly available only in major metropolitan areas.

The cost of living in major urban areas is far greater than in much of the rest of the nation, and even if Americans were forced to move to urban areas in large numbers, there could not possibly be sufficient available jobs, to say nothing of decent, affordable housing. On the day this post was written, Mr. Obama was visiting the slums of Rio de Janeiro. If Sec. Chu had his way, such slums would surround all American cities and 10% unemployment would be looked upon with fond longing for the good old days. There are very good reasons why every American doesn’t live in an urban setting. For all of his education and apparent intellect, Sec. Chu seems unaware of this--or doesn’t care

We keep hearing clowns asking "How much does gas have to cost before it forces people to do what we tell themto make the proper choices?" Their idea of 'proper choice' meaning buy the cars we tell them to, or get rid of them completely. I wonder if these people actually believe that the jump in gas prices these last few months DON'T affect people? Or is it that it hasn't affected people enough?

Well, that's interesting

They've changed the header at the Department of Justice homepage. Used to have stars & stripes, now it's black & white with this slogan: The common law is the will of mankind, issuing from the life of the people.

I got curious and dug around and found this is actually almost a year old(and no, I don't know how I missed it). I found this:
But other Department of Justice employees say the quote originates from British lawyer, C. Wilfred Jenks, who back in the late 1930s and after World War II was a leading figure in the "international law" movement, which sought to impose a global, common law, and advocated for global workers rights. Jenks was a long-time member of the United Nation's International Labor Organization, and author of a number of globalist tracts, including a set of essays published back in 1958, entitled The Common Law of Mankind.
Well, isn't that special?
Most telling: Jenks, as director of the ILO is credited with putting in place the first Soviet senior member of the UN organization, and also with creating an environment that allowed the ILO to give "observer status" to the Palestinian Liberation Organization, and to issue anti-Israeli statements, which precipitated efforts by the U.S. Congress to withdraw U.S. membership from the ILO. The U.S. actually did withdraw in the mid-1970s due to the organization's leftist leanings.

"It was Jenks's efforts that helped make the ILO a tool of the socialist and communist movement," says one of the DOJ lawyers. "We used to joke about how fitting it was that this was Janet Reno's favorite quote to use in speeches, and now the Obama folks think it encapsulates out department's mission."

Suggestions to highlight quotes from the U.S. Constitution or Bill of Rights or quotes from the Founders, the Federalist Papers or prominent American jurists were quickly shot down by the Department of Justice's media and new media teams, according to DOJ sources familiar with the design process, and the White House communications shop was given input to the overall design as well.

And from the same people who brought us this change, who do they want in charge of the EffingBI? Jamie Gorelick. Yes, that bitch. Insty has a number of links, including that she's another Friend of Angelo, like the corrupt Chris Dodd.

From a letter to a WI politician who doesn't want to meet with one of his actual constituents:
I have spoken with a number of Democratic senators and assemblymen over the past month. More than one has described the budget repair controversy as "war." So, Brett, I want to ask you straight out: Do you see it as "war?" And if you do - because I am in dissent with your position - do you see me as your enemy?
Well, you're not a union member or a Democrat-at-any-cost and actually put out facts on the protests, so yes, he does.

Told son a couple of years back that between the newer guided artillery shells, THEL maybe coming online and so forth some armored unit was going to wind up calling itself the Slammers; the Israelis now have the close-in defense system working, so...

If you have more communists in your cabinet than Vladimir Putin, you might be President Obama.

If one of these Senators is yours, might ask them to grill Melson like a weenie on a campout on Gunwalker.

Remember the Washington State Patrol fishing expedition on AR15 buyers? A bit more info. From the answers I can't figure out if
This was the fishing expedition we think,
Someone just didn't think through what they were asking for, or
They're trying to back up from a really big mistake they thought they could get away with.

Enough. Chilly but sunny outside, and I need to go.

To close the night on a more pleasant note,

This is the Last Hurrah of the Vietnam-protesting Baby Boomers. Those poor gray-haired bastards pulled their dusty love beads and tie-dyed banners out of the closet for one last charge into the breach to get Barack Obama elected and here we are, not three years later, lobbing cruise missiles at wogs. If irony had calories, I wouldn't need solid food for the next three months...

Awww, who's the sad clown? Who's the sad clown?

Is there any wine sweeter than the tears of a hippie?

CBS hits on Gunwalker again

with testimony from another ATF agent. I'll borrow this part:
But ATF wasn't working alone on the case known as "Fast and Furious." Documents show ATF had conference calls with "DHS" (Homeland Security). "USMS" (U.S. Marshals) and DEA. An "ICE," or Customs agent, was on ATF's Fast and Furious team. They were advised by an "AUSA," or Assistant U.S. Attorney under the Justice Department.
Read that last bit about the adviser again. Then remember this from earlier:
Mike -- the obvious just hit me... if there's inter-agency participation in this mess, there's a coordinating agent, i.e., someone from the National Security staff at the White House making these horses pull together...

Add the foreign policy connection, and it's a "slam dunk" that the White House has had a key role...

and Obama probably did not sign off on any paper... something like USMC requests for artillery support: Silence implies consent... The question is not did he approve it. Did he disapprove it?

So the CBS report indicates that yes, Holder certainly and Obama almost certainly(I'd think certainly) DID know about Gunwalker.

One of those "If they try this there should be a riot

ending with trampled TSA agents" things:
In a breathtaking statement delivered in an official court proceeding, the federal Department of Homeland Security (DHS) claims authority to strip search every airline passenger; and to begin such a practice without even soliciting comment from the public.

This outrageous statement recently was delivered to the American people by a DHS lawyer in arguments before the U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, which is considering a challenge to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) nude body scanner devices. The suit was brought by the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC)
Trampled into mulch. Followed by the assholes in positions of authority who like the idea.

And the lynching of politicians who let/help this crap happen.

Man, Obama has a LOT of room under that bus,

doesn't he?
If I might make a point here.

Hey Breuer, Melson, Hoover, Chait and Newell. I don't know if you noticed but you've all just been burned, discarded, thrown under the bus by your boss of bosses. "The Secretary has disavowed all knowledge of your actions."

Pretty high pucker factor, huh? I betcha "Gunwalker Bill" Newell alone could make Hope diamonds out of lumps of bituminous coal with his anal sphincter right now

From the end of the previous post:
Mike -- the obvious just hit me... if there's inter-agency participation in this mess, there's a coordinating agent, i.e., someone from the National Security staff at the White House making these horses pull together...

Add the foreign policy connection, and it's a "slam dunk" that the White House has had a key role...

and Obama probably did not sign off on any paper... something like USMC requests for artillery support: Silence implies consent... The question is not did he approve it. Did he disapprove it?

What? Somebody wants to find out for sure if the kid is theirs?

Can't have that, it's 'anti-feminist'!
DNA tests are an anti-feminist appliance of science, a change in the balance of power between the sexes that we’ve hardly come to terms with.
Uncertainty allows mothers to select for their children the father who would be best for them. The point is that paternity was ambiguous and it was effectively up to the mother to name her child’s father, or not… Many men have, of course, ended up raising children who were not genetically their own, but really, does it matter…in making paternity conditional on a test rather than the say-so of the mother, it has removed from women a powerful instrument of choice
Translation: "We want women to be able to say 'YOU are the sperm donor and YOU have to pay child support/whatever, and it's none of your business if I'm telling the truth. Or actually know."
Which is utter bullcrap. There's been some cases finally break into the news of men finding out the kid they've been paying child support for, or raising, were not theirs; in some of the cases the state Child Protective clowns basically say "We don't care if you're actually the father or not; finding the real one would mean us having to work, so we're just going to screw you." Kind of interesting McDonagh considers the idea of fairness or truth to be inconsequential; it's ALL supposed to be about 'empowering' females to lie if they feel like it and get away with it.

More on Napolitano's 'Most secure border EVAH!"

In this court filing, provided exclusively here at Pajamas Media, prosecutors admit that Dhakane, who ran a human smuggling ring based in Brazil for the Somali Al-Shabaab terrorist group, transported “violent jihadists” into the country. He stated that “he believed they would fight against the U.S. if the jihad moved from overseas locations to the U.S. mainland.” (p. 7)

The contents and implications of this admission by DOJ will be one of the items discussed when my colleagues Army Lt. Col Joseph Myers (ret.), Mark Hanna, and I will be testifying Wednesday before the Arizona House Military Affairs and Public Safety Committee on the topic of “Cross-border Terror Threats and Islamic Radicalization in Arizona.”

A: Does hearing this about TSA surprise you?

Newly uncovered documents show that as early as 2006, the Department of Homeland Security has been planning pilot programs to deploy mobile scanning units that can be set up at public events and in train stations, along with mobile x-ray vans capable of scanning pedestrians on city streets.
The projects range from what the DHS describes as “a walk through x-ray screening system that could be deployed at entrances to special events or other points of interest” to “covert inspection of moving subjects” employing the same backscatter imaging technology currently used in American airports
We've heard about this idea before. The Touching Special Areas people deny it, of course, but two things about the denials:
Update: A TSA official responds in a statement that the “TSA has not tested the advanced imaging technology that is currently used at airports in mass transit environments and does not have plans to do so.”
The tech that is currently used at airports, huh? What about related tech? You notice they don't say "We have not tested this type of technology and won't do it"; that'd be a flat denial with no wiggle room, whereas the actual denial...

A privacy assessment included in the documents for one aspect of the plans that focused on train security suggests that images wouldn’t be tied to any personally identifiable information such as a subject’s name. Any images shared outside the project or used for training purposes would have faces blurred, and employees using the system would be trained to avoid privacy violations, the document says. If the scanners were to adopt privacy enhancements deployed in new versions of the airport full body scanners currently being tested by the TSA, they would also use nondescript outlines of people rather than defined images, only showing items of interest on the subject’s body.
Translation: "Yes, we'd be doing warrantless searches at random but we promise your pictures that we take won't have personal information shown. So screw your 4th Amendment rights, we say we can do this." Trust in the TSA denial being decreased strongly by
In August of last year, Joe Reiss, the vice president of marketing of security contractor American Sciences & Engineering told me in an interview that the company had sold more than 500 of its backscatter x-ray vans to governments around the world, including some deployed in the U.S. Those vans are capable of scanning people, the inside of cars and even the internals of some buildings while rolling down public streets. The company claims that its systems’ “primary purpose is to image vehicles and their contents,” and that “the system cannot be used to identify an individual, or the race, sex or age of the person.” But Reiss admitted that the van scans do penetrate clothing, and EPIC president Marc Rotenberg called them “one of the most intrusive technologies conceivable.”

Neat gunny site

Forgotten Weapons. Lots of neat stuff; where else you going to find a Soviet armorer’s manual for the PPSh-41 and PPS-43?

Note: thanks to Keith in comments for pointing to this place

I'm with Insty:

Suck it, lefties.
Watching the people who savaged Bush and called his supporters warmongers and so on now faced with watching the Lightbringer doing basically the same thing, only less competently, is too good a pleasure to forego. Sorry. I hope that things will go well, but I agree with Niall Ferguson that Obama’s dithering has cost us. If we had elected a more competent President, we’d have fewer worries. But people got excited about Obama, and, well, this is what you get when you elect an inexperienced guy with no great interest — or any experience — in international relations.

About those $1 LED yard lights

and a suggestion in comments: in an no-electricity emergency have some that you charge during the day and bring in at night. So the other night I brought that one in and turned off all the lights to see how it did.

Better than a candle, more light spread around. The bad thing was that the faceted(?) globe around it broke the light up into vertical bars, good enough to walk around or sit with but I'd hate to have to do any kind of work with it. If you could find some with smooth globes, that'd be much nicer for the purpose.

Obama trying to sneak in a big increase in gas taxes?

Could be. He gave up on that "If you make less than $200k a year your taxes will not go up!" lie a long time ago.

I'm pretty damn sick of "I don't want to be a hypocrite!" being the excuse

parents use for not laying down rules for their kids and saying 'NO' when called for.
So here we are, the feminist and postfeminist and postpill generation. We somehow survived our own teen and college years (except for those who didn't), and now, with the exception of some Mormons, evangelicals and Orthodox Jews, scads of us don't know how to teach our own sons and daughters not to give away their bodies so readily. We're embarrassed, and we don't want to be, God forbid, hypocrites.
Jennifer Moses, you have a definition problem: if you were telling your daughter not to dress like a hooker and sleep around while you were doing it, THAT would be hypocritical; for you to say "I and people I know made the mistake you're making, and I'm not going to help you make it now" means "I grew up, I learned what a damned mistake that was; so I'm telling you "No, you will NOT go out dressed that way" ."

Few years back I heard one of the periodic "I don't want to be a hypocrite" whines from someone who found out their kid was doing drugs and didn't want to come down on them because they'd used drugs when they were a teenager; they'd realized it was a bad idea, they didn't want to watch their kid screw up the same way but they had the same definition problem. And the current lack of guts that prevents so many parents from laying down the law.

Every time one of these people lets out what they really think

it tells us what kind of government they'd really like to see:
The Democrats need to do what is right in this situation. This is one of those scenarios in American politics where the smartest, most intuitive citizens need to force legislation upon the people, even when it is not the popular choice. The leadership roles that Congress and the President have taken oaths to uphold need to make decisions that are blatantly and obviously the correct ones, which will make for a safer country. A safer country, even when many citizens do not have the intellectual abilities to understand that it is the safest choice for them.
Got that? You don't support registration/bans because you're not intellectually capable of understanding what's good for you; so the Smart Peopletm need to force these laws on you.

It's probably too late to pile on the hippy; from the looks of it he's been so piled-on he probably has trouble breathing.

This kind of dirtbag behavior...

At the trial, ATF testified that they had ground away welds and replaced most of the gun's internal mechanism to finally get the gun to fire three rounds with a single pull of the trigger.
The whole case is disgusting; that someone who professes to be a lawman of the United States would take part in it is even more so. These people should be fired, and should be personally liable- as well as the agency being liable- for this idiocy.

They actually testified that they had to completely rework the rifle to make it behave as they wanted. And expected that admission to help them get a conviction. These people belong in cells for a few years as well as being sued into oblivion for this.

President Obama yesterday praised Brazil for its new offshore oil industry and said he wants to buy as much oil as possible in this new win-win partnership — although we have piled up $5 trillion in new debt, curtailed new petroleum exploration off shore and in the West, as well as kept Alaska off-limits. Our near-term energy future apparently lies in borrowing money to buy oil from those we praise for drilling where we never would ourselves.

More reason why PBS should be cut off from public money:
Someone at its Frontline website has been substituting fake biographies of conservatives written by an organization called Right Web for legitimate institutional biographies. Right Web is a project of the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), a think tank whose scholars’ positions range from left wing to Marxist. When challenged about inaccuracies on the dossiers he compiles of “right wing militarists,” the editor of Right Web e-mailed that even when no evidence supports his allegations, corrections of his slanders would require proving his allegations wrong, an impossible standard that is also embraced by conspiracy theorists like the LaRouchies, 9/11 revisionists, and Birthers. Right Web is also among the worst Google manipulators in the political realm.

The only proper response to this letter would be "Dear Detective & Captain: Fuck you. And no. Sincerely,"

And on that "Were do the cartels get weapons?" question, among other answers is

The El Paso Times has a story based on a Wikileaks leaked diplomatic message. It reports that businessmen in Juarez hired eight Zetas for protection, and Zetas got guns from the army in exchange for a truce with the Zetas and promises of assistance against rival cartels:

"According to the contact, (the source)," the cable states, " 'Zetas' paid a visit on local military commanders when they arrived in Juárez in September 2008, and purchased previously-seized weapons from the army garrison the former 'Zetas' pledged not to target the army, and made themselves available to the army for extrajudicial operations."

Haven't read this whole piece, but using a homemade

directional antennae to get around the bad guys sounds pretty good.

In (formerly Great)Britain,

The bad:
A sex attacker who raped a virgin on a town centre pavement as motorists drove by without stopping has been jailed.

Gary Gunstone stalked the woman through the streets of Bideford, North Devon, just after midnight as she walked to her parents home after visiting her boyfriend.

The 15-stone brute dragged her to the ground and raped her in full view of passing drivers.

The worse:
The judge said Gunstone had raped the woman just two weeks after his jail licence had expired for a previous sex attack which had 'spine chilling' similarities to this attack.
What the HELL?
Mr Laws said Gunstone was jailed for 12 months in August 2009 at Exeter Crown Court for a sexual assault on a woman in very similar circumstances.

In that case he dragged her to the ground in Barnstaple, North Devon , and attacked her even though she was with her sister who tried to fight him off.

He said the similarities were that Gunstone had been drinking in each case, both attacks were in the early hours, and both ignored the danger of being seen.
So after that he was in jail for a whole year? That's IT? I wonder if they'll make him stay the whole time, or if they'll find some excuse to release him after, oh, 1.5 years this time? And then he can rape the next one.

Pieces of walking crap like this get out of prison in stupid-short times, and since in (fG)Britain nowadays you can wind up in jail and sued for coming to the defense of someone(want to bet that of anyone who saw this happening that's why they didn't do anything?) and self-defense can get you jailed...

Britain. Toilet. Hear the flushing sound?

Lots of stuff out there, but I'm not in the mood to

go through a lot of it, so I'll just note this piece of crap:
NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Todd Jealous admits that “a grave mistake was made” right under his nose when advertising inserts were placed only in White newspapers on the eve of the organization’s annual image awards, which aired March 4. Danny Bakewell, chairman of the National Newspaper Publishers Association (NNPA), a federation of more than 200 Black-owned newspapers, is demanding justice.

“If the NAACP desires to advertise with the White press, they need to understand and experience the repercussions of going outside of their ‘house’ (The Black Press). The NAACP needs to know that by ignoring the Black Press they are ‘cutting off their nose to spite their face,’” Bakewell said in a March 7 letter to NNPA publishers, obtained by the Trice Edney News Wire. “We have marched side by side with them and been their voice in the African American community. It is truly disheartening to be on the battlefield with someone and not be able to share in the spoils.”
“This year’s NAACP annual Image Awards television show was a great success,” he wrote in the statement. “However, on the eve of the show, a grave mistake was made: circulars that were supposed to appear in both the mainstream press and Black community newspapers only appeared in the mainstream press.”
So the NYEffin'Times is officially 'White Press'. And all the other mainstream press, too. Isn't that just lovely?

Oh, and you'll notice it's Black press, not African-American press; is A-A now one of those "You whites better use it, or else!" things?
