Frikkin' wonderful; and about what we expect

from these people:
And…another “storm” brews. For many weeks now, there have been indications that the outcome of the Presidential election only days away may trigger significant civil upheaval. It ain’t just “Twitter talk,” which has definitely been there for some time, and can’t be ignored for reasons recently stated in this blog. Before Hurricane Sandy hit, law enforcement was already quietly planning for such a post-Election Day contingency. Law enforcement agencies don’t do that unless they have solid intelligence indicating a genuine risk.
When a 'former' Presidential advisor- Van Jones- talks about burning down what is left of cities if Obama loses, I'd say that yes, there is a genuine risk.
Updated: I could swear saw a note somewhere about Jones saying that, but can't find anything; I may have confused him with some of the other socialists and communists threatening to burn things down.
While searching ran across a thread at Fark about this, a couple of people agreeing that 'if democracy fails this way, I'll light a torch'; got that?  If their guy loses the election it means 'democracy fails'...  The mind reels at the level of stupid/ignorance/hatred involved.

Fucking communists.

Those stories about union electrical workers stopping non-union crews

from repairing lines?
No, they're not lies.
The bastards did it.
Multiple times.
And guess who the union supports in the election?

Two things: first, someone explain again how thankful we should be

that big government and FEMA are saving everyone?
FEMA out of water, no delivery until Monday
In fact, the agency appears to have been completely unprepared to distribute bottled water to Hurricane Sandy victims when the storm hit this Monday. In contrast to its stated policy, FEMA failed to have any meaningful supplies of bottled water -- or any other supplies, for that matter -- stored in nearby facilities as it had proclaimed it would on its website. This was the case despite several days advance warning of the impending storm.
FEMA only began to solicit bids for vendors to provide bottled water for distribution to Hurricane Sandy victims on Friday, sending out a solicitation request for 2.3 million gallons of bottled water at the website. Bidding closed at 4:30 pm eastern.
Breitbart News spoke with contracting officer Annette Wright, who said that the winning vendor would be required to deliver the 2.3 million gallons of bottled water to an East Farmingdale, New York distribution center that was listed in the solicitation request by Monday, November 5th. Ms. Wright was unable to say when or how the water would be delivered from the distribution center to needy Hurricane Sandy victims in New Jersey, Staten Island, Long Island, and other boroughs of New York City. Vendors "are currently being evaluated," she said, and when the vendors are announced, they will provide information on how local distribution will occur.
Absolutely frikkin' amazing, isn't it?

The second, found this at the Irishman's place, supposedly said by the President's minder Valerie Jarrett:
 After we win this election, it’s our turn.  Payback time.  Everyone not with us is against us and they better be ready because we don’t forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve. There is going to be hell to pay.  Congress won’t be a problem for us this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go.”
I doubt there's any way to confirm this; whoever leaked it is probably scared to death to be named, or give some way to confirm.  Personally, I believe it; it fits past words and actions.

A poem on Benghazi,

in the style of Kipling, at NRO

Been pointed out before, if Obama wins he's probably going to wish he'd lost; between this, Fast & Furious and other things coming out(no thanks to our major media
sorry excuses for reporters that they are), he's going to be facing a bunch of people wanting answers and not willing to back off.
In part, let it be noted, because whether they want to or not, they know the people back home will drag them out of that office at the first opportunity if they do.

Penn Square Mall update

Today, received a message on the mall's Facebook page giving a name, phone # and e-mail address for the mall manager.  Just sent to him asking why the mall is posted; we'll see what answer I get.

Friday, November 02, 2012

Think of the worst possible choices to investigate the 'failures' of Benghazi,

and this clown would be right at the top of the list.

Y'know, one of the things that pisses me off the most in this kind of garbage is the simple fact that, if they'd leave us the hell alone, we wouldn't give a pig's ass about muslims(aside from neighbors, business and such); but that can't be, according to bigoted assholes like Pickering, it HAS to be that we hate muslims solely because 'we don't know them, or understand them'.

Pickering, we understand that a large part of the muslim world wants us converted dhimmi or dead, and an awful lot of those would prefer the latter; and that is the only reason we bother having an opinion of them.  Either you know that and lie, or you're actually so stupid as to believe the tripe coming out of your mouth.  In either case, I'm sick of being polite to bigots such as yourself: fuck you.

Oh, and while you're blaming us for everything, why don't you ask your little friends about this?  I realize most of them will lie, or be afraid to voice an opinion, or- more likely- since they can't blame it on us or the Joooooos- won't know what to think about it.

Thirdpower had a post the other day,

"Preppers" are the crazy ones.
I'm going to ignore that dealing with looters would be a lot easier if you were armed, since NYEffingC doesn't trust the peasants with arms, and say this:
For a lot of those people, how much less sucky would this be if they had a few days of drinking water?  A few days of 'can eat it cold' food?  Some lights not dependent on the grid?  A bucket and some plastic bags for a toilet?

Nothing extravagant, or expensive, just a little bit of stuff.

Couple of years back, on a thread somewhere about disaster prep, a guy mentioned having lived in NYC, and that most apartment dwellers were screwed in the event of a real disaster: they're so used to eating out or stopping on the way home from work for groceries that they had maybe a couple of meals worth of groceries in the house that didn't require cooking; those who did, it tended to be pop-tarts or something(edible, but not exactly filling).  Which meant that if they got warning, they'd be part of the mob trying to buy the last whatever on the shelves, or sitting back and figuring the .gov would take care of them.

That works out well, doesn't it?

A friend works at one of the new Dick's Sporting Goods

stores that just opened in OKC.  Today was the Grand Opening, and I just got a call from him during his 'choke down some food and water' break: "I have no idea how many guns and how much ammunition we've sold today."

Good price, or people stocking up?  Maybe both.

From what he said the whole store is packed.

My first open- carry day, and a Penn Square update

Riding down the road with a pistol openly on the hip(well, as open as a IWB holster and dark pistol is against a black shirt was a definite new experience; after all these years making sure it stayed out of sight, it was a bit nervous-making.

Also very nice; no wearing a cover shirt, or a jacket just to conceal it.

I think I like it.

Added: down the road a bit, I may have to see about getting a nice-looking holster from Evyl; he makes some nice stuff.

On Penn Square Mall, you might remember that yesterday I sent the question "Why do you not trust citizens with carry permits on your property?" to their Facebook page, since I got no answer to anything else;  as of now, no answer.  Be nice if they at least had the courtesy to say "Because we choose to do it that way."

I've got a bunch of stuff to mention, Updated

starting with a reason I think "You're union?  Well, kiss my ass."  Just heard a report from a Alabama station that electrical workers gone to NYEffingC to help have been told "You can't work here, you're not union."  Trying to find a link to it now.
Update: two links: this on the story, this saying some of it isn't correct.

Effing Bloomberg has G-d-knows how many people without power, etc., but he's insisting on diverting resources to run the effing marathon; and that's with effing NY insisting the federal government(i.e., WE) pay for ALL recovery costs...

More wonders of the Brit NHS, that Obama & Co. want to copy over here:
Almost two thirds of NHS trusts using the Liverpool Care Pathway have received payouts totalling millions of pounds for hitting targets related to its use, research for The Daily Telegraph shows. 
And what are those targets?  Killing old people.  
At many hospitals more than 50 per cent of all patients who died had been placed on the pathway and in one case the proportion of forseeable deaths on the pathway was almost nine out of 10.

From the Dutchman:

We hear you, collectivist butthead, we just no longer pay attention to you, or believe the statist pap you deal out. Where were you on Fast and Furious? Where are you on Benghazi?

PBS News Co-anchor Frets about loss of Major Network News Influence
A fragmented nation and a fragmented audience for news is making the country more difficult to govern, PBS News Hour co-anchor Jeffrey Brown said during a weekend talk at Western Washington University.
A generation ago, before cable news channels and internet news sources, most people got their news from the same small collection of sources: three major TV networks and a hometown newspaper or two, Brown said. People gathered around their televisions for the assassination of a president, a walk on the moon, and other major events.
"It was an age of mass media news, one audience sharing a common experience," Brown said. "For the most part, the mass audience experienced such things together."
Brown, featured speaker for the university's Fall Family Open House Saturday, Oct. 27, contrasted that world with the one we live in today, in which Americans can restrict themselves to cable news stations and internet news sources they find most congenial.
"For the most part, we now live in the world of niches," Brown said.
He acknowledged that the availability of more choices was a good thing, but also noted that the change seems to be part of a far more divided and bitter political atmosphere.
"If we only connect with like-minded people, how do we hear other views?" Brown asked. "It's hard not to feel it has some relationship to the divisions around us."

Benghazi, American Honor, Little Caesar, and the False Dmitri

 Gee, you'd almost think somebody didn't WANT the site in Benghazi secured and properly searched by the feebs...

More later.

Added: Napolitano doesn't want the crisis to go to waste.

 Personally, I think this makes Pelosi flatly on the side of the enemy.

A little more on "Screw you people, I say the marathon goes on!"

Gunwalker tab clearing

At Arms and the Law:
According to the Washington Times, Issa's latest committee report "divulged for the first time that Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr.’s office originally planned for him to go to Arizona to announce the results of the Fast and Furious investigation before Justice Department officials abruptly dropped the idea when guns from the operation showed up at the murder scene of the border agent."

 Also there, the judge in the suit against Holder speeds things up.

Whoops, the judge is an Obama appointee.

I WAS going to do some other stuff today,

but about 2pm my internet went down.  So I called ATT, and spent a while with a woman who spoke english so-so, and had such an accent that what she did speak, well, I had to ask her to repeat a lot of things.

Anyway, my modem bit the big one.  The original had crapped out back in March, so the replacement was still under warranty.  Except she kept insisting "No, we have no record of you replacing the original, that is the one you are operating on," etc.  With repeats.  Despite my mentioning that I was holding the dated receipt in my hand.  And since I was on the original "It is out of warranty, you will have to buy a replacement," followed by something else because I gave up and hung up.  That ate up around half an hour, which was followed by going to a ATT store, where- once they got through the five people in line- they immediately replaced the modem.  Which is working as it should.

Hey, remember the posts on Penn Square Mall deciding to post "We don't want people who carry in our mall" signs?  Well, I never got a response.  Not from the Simon Group, not from the mall itself.  Today, in honor of Open Carry Day, I poked around and discovered something I should have checked on before: Penn Square has a Facebook page.  So I sent them a message there; let's see if they have the courtesy to answer.

And, if you're in central OK, you might post something yourself; maybe if several people ask they'll bother to answer someone.

And who didn't see this coming?

New York state on Wednesday asked the U.S. federal government to pay all the costs of cleaning up and repairing damage from massive storm Sandy that tore through the Northeast this week and crippled New York City.

Governor Andrew Cuomo said he is asking fellow Democrat, President Barack Obama, to pay 100 percent of the estimated $6 billion bill, at a time that state and local government budgets remain constrained by a weak economic recovery.
Yeah, New York has the same problems as every other state, so the feds should reach into our pockets to pay ALL of New Effing York's costs. 

In a pig's ass.

Today, Oklahoma joins the Open Carry states*

Personally, I'd not do it often; but it's nice having the option.

*Yeah, I know, technically it happened when the Governor signed the bill; but today's the first official legal day, so.

I'm ashamed to say I didn't think to say something about this

Ambassador Chris Stevens and diplomat Sean Smith were not the only Americans in the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, however, a fact some of us have lost sight of in our focus on the dead. Nor were Glen Doherty and Ty Woods the only casualties among the forces that disobeyed orders from the Obama administration not to rescue the consulate staff.
When terrorists surrounded the consulate at approximately 8:00 p.m. Benghazi time with 150 men and “technicals” — pickup trucks with heavy machine guns, bearing the logo of Ansar al-Shariah — Stevens and Smith were part of a larger American delegation numbering somewhere between 7-24.

We’re forced to say “approximately” because it has been difficult to determine through media accounts the exact number of Americans inside the consulate.
 In part because most of our media has done everything it could to ignore this; and when that doesn't work, to downplay it as much as possible.
We don’t know the exact breakdown of which Americans belonged to each specific group beyond the size of the eight-man team to which Doherty belonged, but the total number of Americans in the CIA safe house was at least 24, and may have been as high as 32 when the attack on that position began.
 And if it's up to most of our media, not only would we not find out, we'd never have heard about them; after all, it inconveniences The Lightbringer Obama.

'I had nothing to do with the loans' my ass:

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee released DOE emails today that compromise Obama’s position on two counts: one, the emails show that Obama himself was involved in approving loans; two, DOE officials were keenly aware of the political interests at stake, as they regarded the loans as a way for the White House to help Reid by giving him a way to brag about bringing federal money into Nevada.
And Sen. DingyHarry Reid(Vile Bastard-NV) is in it up to his lying eyes:
In December, 2009, McCrea forwarded one of his colleagues an article about how Reid would struggle in the 2010 campaign along with a comment on how it might affect the DOE loan program.
“Reid may be desperate,” McCrea wrote. “WH may want to help. Short term considerations may be more important than longer term considerations and what’s a billion anyhow?” That’s a troubling closing question given that the DOE lost over half-a-billion dollars on one company when Solyndra went bankrupt.

It's 'unacceptable'?

In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Lenari wrote, “The threat of criminal sanctions against OSCE/ODIHR observers is unacceptable. The United States, like all countries in the OSCE, has an obligation to invite ODIHR observers to observe its elections.”
First of all,
about covers it.

Second, you don't want to worry about it?  Stay the hell out of our polling places.

And no, Clinton doesn't give us all orders.  She can try, but she won't like the response.

The paint test

You may remember I took a bayonet and painted it with header paint, to try out and see how it holds up.
Baking was done the other day.  Instructions say to bake at 250F for 30 minutes, cool 30, bake at 400 for 30, cool 30, then- IF the parts can tolerate- bake at 600 for 30.  600F would screw the heat treatment* on most anything I can think of, so after the second heat I gave it another 30 minutes at 400, then left it in the oven to cool.

No detectable smell while baking, so no worries about stinking up the house or annoying the hubby/wife/whoever while using the oven.  It's assembled, and I'm trying to decide on proper testing procedures.  I need to pick up a kitchen knife, something like an Old Hickory, and clean and treat it; it'd be a better shape for kitchen use.

*Most blade steels I'm aware of, 400F would be the lowest temp that would start to affect the hardness, unless they're tempered very hard.  If you're trying this on something you're worried about, I'd make the highest temp 375F; unless you're working with something odd, that's the temp at which you'd just begin to show the lightest trace of yellow on polished steel, and I know of no commercial blade tempered that hard.  Or anything else, for that matter, other than some kind of drill or something.

They knew

President Barack Obama met with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Vice President Joe Biden at the White House on Sept. 11, 2012 at 5:00 PM—just 55 minutes after the State Department notified the White House and the Pentagon that the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi was under attack.

The meeting between Obama, Panetta and Biden had been scheduled before the attack took place, and the Department of Defense is not commenting now on whether the three men were aware when they met that day of the ongoing attack or whether Obama used that meeting to discuss with his defense secretary what should be done to defend the U.S. personnel who at that very moment were fighting for their lives in Benghazi.
So they didn't even have to be called in; and we're expected to believe that nobody thought "Hey, our consulate in Benghazi is under attack!" was something that should be mentioned to them?   Really?

 If this is true, one of two things happen:
They're released, and the storm hits.
The media hides them till later, and when it comes out they'll be even more trashed than they already are.  If they care.

Linnane's take on Benghazi:
Now this is key: in order for any of the above NOT to happen (i.e. for the CIF or any assets in theater to stand down) the National Command Authority MUST issue a deliberate order.

In other words, the President of the United States and/or his surrogates, specifically directed US forces within striking distance of the situation in Benghazi, to stand down.


A bad decision was made. For whatever reason, the President and his team decided not to send available forces into Benghazi while the US Consulate and the Annex were under attack. Perhaps they feared an ambush at the Benghazi airport; it could have been anything. Hindsight is 20-20 and I am not going to Monday-morning quarterback why that decision was made. It is not illegal to make a bad decision; if it was, nobody would make any decisions at all.

And on the storm mess,
In a perfect world any politician, from president down to dog catcher, that showed up would be handed a mop and told to get busy. If they could not figure out how to operate the mop and demonstrate a minimal level of competence with it, they would be booted from whatever office they held.

 Sounds good to me:

I should note that son's dog

has barely a trace of skunk scent on him, and is quite happy with his exploits.  They're taking him to get his rabies shot updated tomorrow; he's still got a month before it's due, but they want to do it now.

They've also found out there's a female with several other little ones under a neighbor's shed; neighbor is trying to get some traps so animal control will take them away.

Ladd Everitt/CSGV Get Their Censorship On

Because when when they keep losing the argument, their next step it to try to shut up the other side.

Connected, from Hanson: Why liberals think what they do

About the dirtbags at TSA:
And there it is — stripped of pretense or dissembling, the core of the TSA's argument: shut the fuck up about us or terrorists will kill your family. 

Governments and government minions accrete power through fear. The TSA — like so many other agencies of post-9/11 American government — has been doing it for years; Farbstein just dumbed it down a bit more than they usually do.
 And it's necessary to molest your kid and feel you up and humiliate people in public to keep them safe...

Well, when you work with terrorists, you take the chance of them biting you; sucks, don't it, doc?
Based on the documents Dr. Best has submitted, the New Mexico court should probably issue a temporary restraining order against Marino. It appears that she has engaged in true threats, as opposed to mere rhetoric, and that she may pose a genuine physical danger to Dr. Best if she ever comes near him. The rule of law protects even those who scorn it. Just as freedom of expression protects the Phelpses and the Skokie Nazis who would ditch it in a heartbeat if they took power, laws against threats of violence protect even those who sneer at them, like Dr. Best.
But I can't see why anyone either inside our outside of the animal rights movement should ever take Dr. Steven Best seriously again. 

Edited to add: Commenter Dan Weber points out this revealing gem:
She has always talked about killing herself, and that she would "take someone out with her"; I now fear that person will not be a medical researcher/vivesector she loathes so intensely, but rather me.
Emphasis, and evidence of sociopathy, in original.
I probably should be bigger than this, but there's always something satisfying when a jerk like this has his tactics turned on him, and he squeals to the people he despises for protection.

I should note that son's dog made the acquaintance

of a white-striped booger cat last night.  As I learned from a somewhat frantic/pissed-off call from Dad.

Bad: Scared hell out of them, and the yard smells like- well, you ever smelled FRESH violently-dead skunk?
Good: not a mark on him, his shots are up to date, and he apparently hit the little bastard from the side, and so fast that it couldn't spray him.

Ah, the joys of the livestock...

Lets us not forget, in the yelling over Benghazi, that the first body count

mess of the Obama administration is still going on:
The second of three reports on Fast and Furious gunwalking prepared for Darrell Issa, Chairman of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, and Chuck Grasssley, Ranking Member, Senate Committee on the Judiciary, has been released today by Congressional staffers in the nation’s capitol.
While doing the requisite reading and digestion of material, another troubling revelation casts further doubt on Attorney General Eric Holder’s protestations that he did not learn of Fast and Furious until whichever is the latest time period he claims as the story he’s sticking to. As Gun Rights Examiner reported last January, Holder aide Monty Wilkinson told then-U.S. Attorney for the District of Arizona Dennis Burke that he’d alerted Holder to the death of agent Brian Terry the same night it happened. Six days later, according to this report, Burke and Wilkinson were corresponding over the recommendation that Holder not announce Fast and Furious at a press conference.

To suggest the AG was still blissfully oblivious about the activities of his command at that time and under those circumstances, and remained that way until happening across mainstream news accounts some months later, strains all semblances of credibility, particularly when considered against the since-corroborated reports that had been compiled by free agents, with no official information resources at their disposal, compared to the unlimited network at his.
Lots of links in the article.

And, from the Dutchman, a question:
 Does anyone here doubt that WE are the zombies
Marines, police prep for mock zombie invasion. Given the trouble the military/DHS-types got into the last time when they designated their probable enemies as "Tea Party types," now we have "Zombies" doing decidedly unzombie-like things. Says the note that accompanied this link:
Who here thinks that this exorcise is not what I think it is???? Is this the gov training for martial law right in front of our faces???
"In the scenario, a VIP and his personal detail are trapped in a village, surrounded by zombies when a bomb explodes. The VIP is wounded and his team must move through the town while dodging bullets and shooting back at the invading zombies."
Several things jump out. Zombies doing IEDs? Shooting BACK at zombies, connoting that the zombies were shooting at them? 'Invading' zombies versus just zombies, who technically are indigenous to the area before their transformation.
Yeah, that's one way to get around pissing people off directly: call them 'zombies' instead of 'tea party adherents.

It's from early this year, a response to Japete and one of her

"You hate people" rants; well worth reading.

From Steyn on the attempted Benghazi coverup:
Why would Obama and Biden do such a thing? Because to launch a military operation against an al-Qaida affiliate on the anniversary of 9/11 would have exposed the hollowness of their boast through convention week and the days thereafter – that Osama was dead, and al-Qaida was finished. And so Ty Woods, Glen Doherty, Sean Smith and Chris Stevens were left to die, and a decision taken to blame an entirely irrelevant video and, as Secretary Clinton threatened, "have that person arrested." And, in the weeks that followed, the government of the United States lied to its own citizens as thoroughly and energetically as any totalitarian state, complete with the midnight knock-on-the-door from not-so-secret policemen sent to haul the designated fall guy into custody.
And, let's not forget, 'that person' is still sitting in a cell.  Kind of like the doctor who helped find bin Laden.

Of COURSE they were involved: they had to
A: Buy votes from the union, and
B: So who cares how badly they screw the non-union people?

In case you had any doubts, what the enviroweenies want to force on everyone:
This was his advice to the hundreds of millions of Americans that use their cars to commute to work: "If you carpooled [six miles per day], you'd have about three pounds of CO2 left in your daily ration -- enough to run a highly efficient refrigerator. Forget your computer, your TV, your stereo, your stove, your dishwasher, your water heater, your microwave, your water pump, your clock. Forget your light bulbs, compact fluorescent or not."
It gets worse. This the alternate food reality McKibben wants for America: "Local, labor-intensive, low-input agriculture." And this is how he sells it: "You'll be standing guard over your vegetable path with your shotgun, warding off the marauding gang that's after your carrots." Yes, seriously: A man that has heavy sway in the Obama White House wants you to drop that grocery bag and go load up on bullets and carrot seeds.
 Except ammo and firearms require metals and energy to make, and he doesn't like that, so you'll be carving a crossbow or a blowgun to guard the garden.  Or try to.  Etc.

Another wonderful action by the NHS in England; "We don't care if the meds are free, you can't have them."

Seems to be a recurring theme: If Obama loses the election, he can count on hearings and possibly prosecutions; if he wins, he can count on hearings and possibly prosecutions.  Possibly impeachment.  He's still got most of the major media doing its best to ignore this, and to cover up what they can't ignore; but more and more people are hearing more and more about this, and the major media weenies are trashing what little trust people still had in them.

A Democrat candidate and his husband: classy shitbags, aren't they?
Update: Ace says the 'victim' has recanted the report, but no specifics in the report; wonder that the bleep's going on?

Some questions about Sheriff Whetsel and the 2nd Amendment

brought up by this:
Here is 1995 internal IACP strategic plan document to undermine or eliminate right to carry legislation. 

The plan was to kill the bills if possible and if not to encumber the legislation with a number of burdensome requirements to deter lawful citizens from obtaining a permit. 

For example, Item 5 on page 6 of the document suggests making it a criminal offense, a felony rather than a misdemeanor, to carry with an expired permit. 

Another example is item #14 on pg 7. Require a separate CCW permit for each individual weapon and limit permit holders to one gun purchase per month.

President Clinton thanked John Whetsel personally in 1994 for his help in passing the Brady and Crime Bills. The “Crime Bill” that Clinton makes reference to is actually ‘The Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act’ This was the Act that established a ban on “Assault Weapons” which lasted from 1994 to 2004.

I heard something about this on KTOK this morning, apparently they interviewed him but I missed it.  If you've followed this group in the past, you know the IACP is one of the worst gun bigot groups out there, so there's a temptation to say "You were part of this?  Well, then."
According to the excerpt I did hear, he says that this was 'standing by the decision of the membership, not his personal view.'  And I do have to say, I've heard several people say that he's never had a problem with signing off on NFA applications for silencers or what have you.

Upon returning to the CIA annex with survivors, Griffin said

one of the soldiers got on the radio and asked, frantically, at midnight: “Where the blank is the Spectre?” (Griffin didn’t say exactly which expletive she had replaced).
In other words, Griffin’s reporting reveals yet more evidence that the American forces in Benghazi were left deliberately outgunned, with military assets that could have been used to protect the situation left unused. To that end, Charles Woods, the father of slain Navy SEAL Tyrone Woods, appeared on Fox News today to explain why his family was coming forward demanding answers as to why their son died.

God damn

First-class fighting men.  Warriors.

Who were left sitting because some politicians didn't have the integrity or balls to give the support they needed.

People need to hang for this.

If Doctor Jones was up for review


Looks like parts of NYEffing City are going to get

a serious flushing, and yet Nanny Bloomberg has, as of last word, said "No evacuations ordered."  Which is something coming from the chief control freak of the northeast; I'm wondering why?  He that scared of people calling him names if the storm doesn't break as bad as predicted?  Borrowing from the link,
Let me be clear: I have literally no f***ing idea what Bloomberg is talking about. As closely as I’ve been following Sandy, I have not seen anyone else — literally not a single meteorologist or any other person — suggest that Sandy will produce a “slow pile up of water” rather than a typical “sudden” storm surge. On the contrary, AccuWeather’s Mike Smith writes:
“So it will be less dangerous.” We don’t know that to be the case. The latest barometric pressure associated with Sandy is 960 mb. It is forecast to drop to 937 mb when it is south of NYC (see posting below from 11:40pm CDT). With a pressure that low the winds and surge could be very comparable to a hurricane. It would be an all-time record low for the region, hurricane or not.
...Bloomberg’s idea of a uniquely slow drip-drip-drip surge doesn’t even make logical sense, and has no scientific basis that I’ve heard anyone articulate. Is he high? Has he lost is mind? I am simply stunned and baffled by this ignorant pronouncement, which will cause people to become complacent, and thus endanger lives.

IN some cases I'd say "Not my problem", except that Bloomberg will demand the rest of the country pay for the damages because
NYEffin'C is so damned important, and
Because His Highness says so.
Which makes it somewhat my problem.
