The Al Sharpton school of 'civil rights':

"Screw whites, and minorities get special treatment.  Or you're a racist."

What?  Obama care is actually in REAL trouble?  Whoda thunk it possible?
Shut up, and put your hands down; I know YOU did.
The calculation of subsidies continues to fail tests, and it’s pretty clear that some actual consumers have made actual purchases with bad information, which will become apparent to them when they get their first bills. If the interface problems are addressed and the volume of purchases increases, this calculation problem could become a huge concern.
What happens if tens of thousands of consumers get their first insurance bill and discover they’re paying more than they thought? Or get a notice from the IRS that the subsidy they thought they were getting is incorrect? Imagine: pitchforks, tar, and feathers.
I'd prefer to think of ropes and lampposts, but I'll settle for PT&F.  For now.

Speaking of, I've been thinking about that 'Fill in ALL your personal information before you can actually see the plans' crap. There's been a backhand admission that it was to keep people from backing out from seeing the prices up front, but another thought occurs:
For an administration that wants to run your life as much as possible, this is great; they can get all that information in a single database. And you have to give it to them to even attempt to see the plans.

And there's no way to take it out once they have it.

JPFO thinks there are 7 varieties of gun bigots/hoplophobes: Elitists, Authoritarians top the list.

A: The UN can kiss our ass. Just in general.
B: Seeing as how the official UN position is that there is no fundamental human right to self-defense, being lectured on self-defense laws by these cankers on the ass of humanity is annoying as hell.
C: Did I mention that the UN can kiss my ass?

The EffingBI and DHS are still at it:
A joint bulletin issued in early August by the Department of Homeland Security and FBI warns state and local law enforcement agencies to look out for people in possession of “large amounts” of weapons and ammunition, describing the discovery of “unusual amounts” of weapons as a potential indicator of criminal or terrorist activity.
And how do they define those things?
While the bulletin never clarifies what constitutes a “large” or “unusual” quantity of weapons or ammunition, it does say that such a quantity would “arouse suspicion in a reasonable person.”
Which means "If Japete breaks out in involuntary urination and outrage at your two bricks of .22 and can of 9mm, that's it."

Anybody else reminded of FEMA and DHS saying "You need to have at least three days of supplies in case of disaster" and then DHS saying "Anybody stockpiling food, water and other items should be considered a terrorism suspect"?

Speaking of .gov jerks, morons and dirtbags,
Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is even refusing to testify before the House Energy and Commerce Committee in a hearing this coming Thursday. HHS claims she has scheduling conflicts, but we hope she isn't in the White House catacomb under interrogation by Valerie Jarrett about her department's incompetence.

The department is also refusing to make available lower-level officials who might detail the source or sources of this debacle. Ducking an investigation with spin is one thing. Responding with a wall of silence to the invitation of a duly elected congressional body probing the use of more than half a billion taxpayer dollars is another. This Obama crowd is something else.

What bunker is Henry Chao hiding in, for instance? He's the HHS official in charge of technology for the Affordable Care Act, and in March he said at an insurance lobby conference that his team had given up trying to create "a world-class user experience." With the clock running, Mr. Chao added that his main goal was merely to "just make sure it's not a third-world experience."

And this is what our 'schools' are producing...
Insty keeps asking "Is sending a kid to public school child abuse?" From the sound of this, yes.
And that's not counting the 'zero-tolerance' idiocy and other crap.

In the spirit of the month,

Target-rich environment:

Yeah, I know, Daphne's redhead, but still:

Or, during an investigation,

Kahr40 did a logo for the NSPS too:

Anybody who thinks this was a 'joke'

and they 'didn't know it would offend anyone' is a fool.
Especially given the ATF background of screwing agents for ANY reason, let alone what's been done to Gunwalker whistleblowers.

What modern feminism has become: "I decided that I'd been made uncomfortable, so someone has to suffer for it!"

Couple of days ago, during the 'shutdown', heard a commercial on radio for the Park Service: 'Our centennial is approaching, and we need more money to properly do the parks!'
Considering their behavior during the downtime, they need a farging budget cut and to fire a bunch of clowns.

"Those right-wing traitors and racists need to stop being so divisive!"

Except the ones that kiss his ass, of course.

And next time somebody starts that 'nasty talk from the right' crap, remind them
I love being scolded by an autocrat who just got done calling anybody who disagrees with him a hostage-taker, and then turns around and says $#!+ like, “We don’t have to suggest that the other side doesn’t love this country.” See, it isn’t incredibly ugly, hyperpartisan rhetoric when he says it.

Bloomberg's connected to this Illinois attack on gun ownership and self-defense; anybody surprised?
As if the current mayor really needed any help on such.

Speaking of Illinois, the State Police(and sometimes that's such an accurate name, isn't it?) are doing their best to screw up the process.

Sparkman High principal Michael Campbell, you're a piece of shit; and I hope you're very happy with what you've helped cause.

Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office:

They'll smell a bad smell(maybe) and break into your home and kill you.  And then justify the meth raid(no meth or components found) because somebody in the house had some grass.

And an 80-year-old man, awakened by somebody breaking in in the night, is supposed to magically know it's cops.  Of course, he MAY have known and some asshole with a badge might have killed him anyway and excused it with 'he pointed a gun'(see 'magically' above), therefore he deserved it because drugs(see 'no meth or chemicals found' above).

Yes, I posted on this before; this crap should be repeated, over and over, along with the excuses for murdering a man in his home in a SWAT raid instead of knocking on the damned door and saying "Sir, we have a search warrant."

Every American has a little sedition in his soul, and this is a very good time to give it free rein.

There is a finely calibrated bargain at the heart of a republic: Citizens have a duty to obey the lawful and legitimate mandates of the government, including those with which they disagree, and the government has a duty to see to it that its actions are lawful and legitimate. The people have an obligation to be prudent and circumspect about engaging in civil disobedience, and the government has a responsibility to be scrupulous with its powers. That contract has been violated by the White House.

Yep; the 'civil rights movement' now largely means "Equal Rights For All; as long as we can get some groups special treatment."

Interesting way to prevent anyone from getting information: "NOBODY has standing to sue us!"

Haven't had time to get through all of this, but interesting.
The U.S. Constitution was written by individuals who believed in the classical liberal philosophy of individual rights and sought to protect those rights from governmental encroachment. But since the fascist/ collectivist philosophy has been so influential, policy reforms over the past half century have all but abolished many of these rights by simply ignoring many of the provisions in the Constitution that were designed to protect them. As legal scholar Richard Epstein has observed: “[T]he eminent domain . . . and parallel clauses in the Constitution render . . . suspect many of the heralded reforms and institutions of the twentieth century: zoning, rent control, workers’ compensation laws, transfer payments, progressive taxation.”[8] It is important to note that most of these reforms were initially adopted during the ’30s, when the fascist/collectivist philosophy was in its heyday.

Things like this are why a gun is a handy thing to have around:
Do you know what people are?  They are nothing more than bags of meat with screams inside!
But a lot of the gun bigots think using a gun to stop beings like this is just as bad or worse than what the being is doing.

More bodies to pile at the feet of Holder, Obama,

and their little minions who ran Gunwalker.
CBS News has learned of a shocking link between a deadly drug cartel shootout with Mexican police last week and a controversial case in the U.S. The link is one of the grenades used in the violent fight, which killed three policemen and four cartel members and was captured on video by residents in the area.

According to a Justice Department "Significant Incident Report" filed Tuesday and obtained by CBS News, evidence connects one of the grenades to Jean Baptiste Kingery, an alleged firearms trafficker U.S. officials allowed to operate for years without arresting despite significant evidence that he was moving massive amounts of grenade parts and ammunition to Mexico's ruthless drug cartels.
Ah, the wonders of the operations of the BATFEIEIO.
Though I shouldn't be even a little light about this; we'll never know how many people are dead in connection with these bastards.

The Kingery case was overseen by the same Arizona U.S. Attorney and ATF office that let suspects traffic thousands of weapons to Mexican drug cartels in the operation dubbed Fast and Furious.

ATF says it has no information about this(that they'll admit to); and Holder's DoJ... probably trying to find anything else they can hide up Obama's ass under executive privilege.

Busy, so for now just a short "Screw the GOP"

They didn't just cave, surrender, and give Obama and Reid everything they wanted, the sold out.  McConnell got this; no cheap whore he, only for premium call-girl prices does he sell out!

Which makes you wonder what a bunch of these other clowns sold themselves for, doesn't it?

Isn't Jarvis cute, with his little collar insignia on his green uniform?

“We are content-neutral on First Amendment and on the National Mall,” Mr. Jarvis responded.

“That wasn’t my question,” Mr. Gowdy fired back. “Do you consider it to be an exercise of your First Amendment rights to walk to a monument that you helped build?”

Mr. Jarvis then insinuated that individuals could visit the memorials if they “declare” they are there to exercise their First Amendment rights.

“Who were they to declare it to?” Mr. Gowdy angrily interrupted. “A barricade? … I want the record to reflect that no statute or code of the federal regulation was cited to justify the erection of barricades.”

Look at the way he hesitates and thinks real hard about how to answer "Did you talk to anybody at the White House about this?"
Miserable little fascist bastard.
Also a lying little bastard.
Explaining the decisions to close off memorials, including open-air sites like the World War II Memorial, he said the agency took "prudent and practical steps." He said the agency has worked "diligently" to ensure "honor flights" of WWII veterans were not turned away from the memorials despite the restrictions -- allowing them access on the basis of their First Amendment rights.
Which apparently means "I didn't order them arrested when they move the barricades I used to block their access to the memorial."

And do note they had to subpoena the bastard.

The director's full testimony to Congress can be found here, but it can be summed up as a non-apology blaming the inability of a furloughed workforce to meet the safety and security concerns of a "post-9/11 world" for the National Park Service's actions despite the fact that law enforcement officers, firefighters, border protections, and surveillance programs were maintained throughout the furloughs.
And I suppose the 'post-9/11 world' is why elderly people at Yellowstone were kept in their rooms by armed guards(so if there were no security people due to furlough, where'd these clowns come from?).

The Democrats, of course, insist it's all the Republicans fault.  Anything, no matter what or where.

 Not only should it not be necessary to tell people "You don't have to let these clowns come into your home", but Mills should have his ass kicked for thinking a warrantless 'visit' was in any way tolerable.

Short(very) version: "How dare you actually own and use firearms I disapprove of civilians having?!?"
Short answer: 'Screw you, bozo.'

Amazing work (possibly NSFW)

States need to follow the Florida lead on gun laws:

Pass a law that's in violation of state preemption, the people involved are personally liable.  Vermont could use that right now.
But the key admission came from Terri Hallenbeck of the Burlington Free Press.
“So, this is a way to inch things forward on the gun control issue,” she observed. “You go to one of Vermont's most liberal municipalities and you get a tiny bit, then maybe you inch forward."
In violation of law, but they'll pay no price for doing it, so they don't care.

Once again: “Loophole” = “People Doing Legal $#!t I Don’t Like”.  In this case Ladd Everitt striking again, changing his mind with- well, the speed of a gun bigot who needs a new stand.

Sean does good work:
It was GRNC who emailed all their members in Wake and Durham counties asking them to show up at an unknown (at the time) location with about 24 hours notice. We didn’t know where we were going to set up until 10 hours before the event where it was even going to be! Their secrecy was deliberate, because they didn’t want us to show up. Sadly (for them!) they failed. From my blog wrapup of that event…
Luckily, the media told us what was happening. We heard several variations, but the basics were that they would shoot sporting clays, have a round table discussion with gun owners, and meet with their supporters. The general consensus was that their round table discussion with gun owners would happen at “The Pit Authentic Barbecue” in downtown Raleigh at around 11AM. Paul Valone of Grass Roots North Carolina couldn’t make it, so he put me in charge and asked me to make it happen. With less than 10 hours notice, we wrangled a crowd of about 25-30 people.
(Read the whole thing for photos and even some news video coverage.)
And now, months later, NBC is citing us and one of a number of reasons that the Astroturf anti-gun movement is failing.

Obamacare reality strikes; dedicated Kossacks can make excuses for ANYTHING.

Speaking of reality, while the TSA is molesting people and stealing their stuff, this is going on.
And when something does happen, the bastards will say that this proves they need the authority to strip-search us.

Speaking of order-following jerks in uniforms,

“Who is going to want to buy an old stupid gun

rather than a smart gun?” Teret asked.
Yeah, who would want their old stupid iron that goes 'Bang' every time instead of a buggy, overcomplicated piece of crap that can't be trusted?

And you'll notice Bloomberg money behind this, along with the company involved being
...Armatix, which works enthusiastically to curry favor from Geneva’s Small Arms Survey and the notoriously anti-gun International Action Network on Small Arms...

And this is in the Dark and Fascist State of New Jersey.  Which has a law that means, even if this is a piece of unreliable crap,  “The law … requires the state’s gun dealers to exclusively sell smart guns within three years after the first one hits the market.”(except for cops, of course, they're exempt); so it doesn't have to be worth crap as long as it's on the market and Bloomberg & Co. can say "No more old-style guns sold within three years."

Oh yeah, it's a threat.  And you think that bastard Christie will have any problem with it?

It's turning chilly outside; The Experiment

therefore should attempt temperature increase

Isn't that cute? We have vets going to memorials;

Obama & Co. have to organize protesters.

Steyn on the National Socialist Park Service:
The NPS has spent the last two weeks behaving as the paramilitary wing of the DNC, expending more resources in trying to close down open-air, unfenced areas than it would normally do in keeping them open. It began with the war memorials on the National Mall — that’s to say, stone monuments on pieces of grass under blue sky. It’s the equivalent of my New Hampshire town government shutting down and deciding therefore to ring the Civil War statue on the village common with yellow police tape and barricades.
Armed rangers were posted at the doors, and, just in case one of the wily Japanese or Aussies managed to outwit his captors by escaping through one of the inn’s air ducts and down to the geyser, a fleet of NPS SUVs showed up every hour and a half throughout the day, ten minutes before Old Faithful was due to blow, to surround the geyser and additionally ensure that any of America’s foreign visitors trying to photograph the impressive natural phenomenon from a second-floor hotel window would still wind up with a picture full of government officials. 
The NPS have not yet fried anyone for taking King Barack’s deer, but it is somewhat sobering to reflect that an English peasant enjoyed more freedom on the sovereign’s land in the 13th century than a freeborn American does on “the people’s land” in the 21st century.
Disgusting barely begins to cover it.  And this agency needs to be cleaned or done away with, since they seem to think they're entitled to do whatever the hell they want with what they seem to believe is THEIR property.

Speaking abuses of power, the good thing is this piece of crap with a badge was arrested; now we'll see if the agency actually carries through or comes up with some dodge for him.

So let's see charges filed on Hagel.  Or at the least- assuming any of the journalists in DC actually aspire to being reporters- some real hard questions being asked(I know, but I can dream).
The American Spectator has been provided with the text of a political message sent on Saturday evening, using Department of Defense communications systems, on behalf ofPresident Obama and Secretary of Defense Hagel.

It is addressed to “all US government employees” and further specified by the DoD sender to go to “all subordinate commands,” in compliance with Hagel’s call for “the widest possible distribution.”

The message contains standard presidential lauding of public service, but goes on to attack the current government shutdown by specifically castigating the House of Representatives, saying that the House — which is unsubtle code for Republicans — should “follow the Senate’s lead…without trying to attach…partisan measures in the process.”

Just found out about the free download for Matthew Bracken books
over at Kahr40's place.  I had EF&D, I'll definitely be looking for the other two.

'A few low-level employees' my ass

The White House official who exchanged confidential taxpayer information with the IRS is a longtime Obama advisor and progressive activist who is currently the most powerful official on Obamacare implementation within the White House.

Jeanne Lambrew, deputy assistant to the president for health policy, entered Obama-world in 2008 as a health-policy adviser to then-Senator Obama’s presidential campaign. She was subsequently named deputy director and then director of the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) now-defunct Office of Health Reform, where she reported directly to Kathleen Sebelius.
Lambrew exchanged confidential taxpayer information on organizations with IRS official Sarah Hall Ingram and White House health policy advisor Ellen Montz, according to 2012 emails obtained by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and provided to The Daily Caller last week. Ingram attempted to counsel Lambrew and the White House on a lawsuit from religious organizations opposing Obamacare’s contraception mandate.

Translation: "You people came in here and pissed off the locals, and we lost two senators!  Stay out of it this time!"

Well then, Mrs. Obama, get off your ass and start weeding and harvesting.

So, you order a fire academy to take a bunch of people who couldn't make it before, and you're surprised to have a higher-than-usual number of injuries and "I'm done" people?  Really?

Monday, October 14, 2013

So... laugh maniacally, scream in pain and frustration, or

gather rope, make torches and head for Sodom on the Potomac?* forces you to create an account and enter detailed personal information before you can start shopping. This, in turn, creates a massive traffic bottleneck, as the government verifies your information and decides whether or not you’re eligible for subsidies. HHS bureaucrats knew this would make the website run more slowly. But they were more afraid that letting people see the underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans would scare people away.
That raises an obvious question. If 50 million people are uninsured today, mainly because insurance is too expensive, why is it better to make coverage even costlier?
(What?!? The Lightbringer LIED?  Say it ain't so!)
The answer is that Obamacare wasn’t designed to help healthy people with average incomes get health insurance. It was designed to force those people to pay more for coverage, in order to subsidize insurance for people with incomes near the poverty line, and those with chronic or costly medical conditions.

But the laws’ supporters and enforcers don’t want you to know that, because it would violate the President’s incessantly repeated promise that nothing would change for the people that Obamacare doesn’t directly help. If you shop for Obamacare-based coverage without knowing if you qualify for subsidies, you might be discouraged by the law’s steep costs.
Except that, as noted later,
... But you’ll have to be at or near the poverty line to gain subsidies of that size; most people will either not qualify for a subsidy, or qualify for a small one that, net-net, doesn’t make up for the law’s cost hikes.

This political objective—masking the true underlying cost of Obamacare’s insurance plans—far outweighed the operational objective of making the federal website work properly. Think about it the other way around. If the “Affordable Care Act” truly did make health insurance more affordable, there would be no need to hide these prices from the public.
But- well, let's be honest here: they didn't just hide them, they lied their faces off about them.  Because to them 'truth' means 'that which serves the cause' and has no relation to the, y'know, truth.

Think about it. It’s quite possible that much of this disaster could have been avoided if the Obama administration had been willing to be open with the public about the degree to which Obamacare escalates the cost of health insurance. If they had, then a number of the problems with the exchange’s software architecture would have been avoided. But that would require admitting that the “Affordable Care Act” was not accurately named.

They knew that their people on the front lines, people like Henry Chao, were worried that the exchanges would get botched. They saw the Congressional Research Service memorandum detailing that the administration has missed half of the statutory deadlines assigned by the law. But they were more afraid of the P.R. disaster of disclosing Obamacare’s high premiums than they were of the P.R. disaster of crashing websites. What you see is the result.

*Not that none of the choices preclude telling people whining about the prices of their lustfully-awaited Obamacare "WE TOLD YOU, YOU DUMB BASTARDS!

Never forget: the gun bigots not only hate us,

they lie about themselves to look 'moderate'.

Also remember, when they talk about 'military-grade' or 'police-grade' weapons, they mean everything; these are the people who announced that a scoped hunting/target rifle is actual a 'intermediate-range sniper weapon' and should be banned.

If you break into a home with intent to do harm, you've got no right to whine(if you survive)- and neither does your family- if the homeowner ventilates you.

Sorry, John Railey, you're just one more "I'm a gun owner, BUT-" jackass we have to put up with.

I had some hopes when I first heard about this(who with a brain and some integrity DOESN'T want Al Sharpton out on his ass?), but it turns out it's "He's too busy pushing his stuff and not doing enough to get us stuff."  As if Sharpton gives a rats ass about anything but his own position.

PC idiocy in the Army; Deity help us if we have to go to full-out war anywhere with 'leadership' like this.

A skull target that bounces... oh the fun you could have with this!

Question: is the French 'mainstream' actually baffled, or

just doesn't want to talk about the 800-pound gorilla in the room?
France's mainstream political parties were Monday scratching their heads over what to do about a surge by the Front National (FN) after a breakthrough by-election win for the far-right party.
I think there's a hint in the article, though they won't say it outright:
The southeastern town has struggled with high unemployment since the closure of local aluminium mines in the 1990s and the gloomy economic backdrop has exacerbated tensions between established residents and a large community of North African immigrants, creating fertile ground for the FN in a region where it traditionally does better than elsewhere in France.
Read 'muslim immigrants' to be accurate.  Like the 'disaffected North African youths' that have weekend carbeques as regular events in major cities.

I can't find it right now, but a year or so ago there was a video released in France, lots of people basically saying "We're France, and we're sick of what's being done to us."  I think this is a continuation of that, and same thing as the push for a third party here: "If you bastards are going to ignore and abuse us, we'll do something about it."

Liable to get interesting, isn't it?

One more on the "Now it's Officer Jackboot" theme Updated

This time from the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Office:
On the morning of June 27, detectives raided the couple’s home in unincorporated Littlerock, serving a search warrant granted because the property allegedly smelled of the ingredients used to make methamphetamine, according to sheriff’s department officials.

There’s a dispute about what exactly happened at the home in the 36600 block of 117th Street East (map), east of Palmdale, but Eugene Mallory ended up dead, shot six times.

No evidence of a meth operation was ever found, though sheriff’s officials say marijuana was found on the property.
80-year-old man murdered in his home.  Because 'We smelled the stuff.'  Right.

The list of bullshit in this is long and stinks badly.  I'm going to skip to this:
Marijuana was found on another part of the property where Tonya’s lived, she said.

“There was a drug operation that was certainly going on in this house,” Whitmore said.
There was a drug operation that was certainly going on in the house. Certainly.  Even though there is no evidence, because, certainly.  And shut up, they explained.
THEY FOUND NOTHING IN THE HOUSE.  They SAY they found marijuana ON ANOTHER PART OF THE PROPERTY(which could mean 'there was a wild plant found in a corner of the yard'), and that means "There Was A Drug Operation Going On Here. So don't bother us about killing an old man in a raid over smells."

We're supposed to trust these bastards why, again?

Also from CJ,
Two weeks before he officially left the Framingham Police Department, outgoing Chief Steven Carl disbanded the department’s SWAT team, about two and a half years after an accidental fatal shooting during a raid.
“Chief Carl disbanded the SWAT team and one of the main reasons articulated was that myself and Deputy (Steven) Trask did not have the training needed to lead the team,” acting Chief Kenneth Ferguson said on Friday.
The team came under scrutiny in 2011 when a Framingham man was accidentally shot and killed by SWAT team member Officer Paul Duncan in a drug raid on Fountain Street.

On Jan. 5, 2011, Duncan shot Eurie Stamps Sr., 68, who was laying on the ground, when Duncan lost his balance and tripped, firing the M4 submachine gun once. The shot killed Stamps.
After the shooting, Carl assembled a community panel to look at the shooting, and the chief instituted several policy changes after an independent probe of the team by SWAT expert Steve Ijames.

Some of the changes included reducing the team from 18 members to 12, increasing training and a mandate for officers to keep a firearm’s safety on until the weapon is needed.
Another 'national-class' team like the one that killed Guerena, it seems.

Now this is inspirational!

Veterans swarmed the World War II, Vietnam and Lincoln memorials. They removed the barrycades from all of the memorials, starting with the WWII Memorial. From there, the veterans tore the barrycades down at the Vietnam Memorial before moving on to liberating the Lincoln Memorial. 

Police were present and attempted to set the removed barrycades back into place. But the volunteers made a human chain, singing the National Anthem, and prevented police from putting the barrycades back into place. The veterans eventually moved some of the barrycades over to the White House, so their namesake could see them. 

Veterans also captured the paper shutdown signs from barrycades, posed for photos with them, and took them home as spoils.
And not a NSPS clown-in-armor yelling "Leave this area or else!" in sight.

I have an image of a conversation:
"Start clearing those people out of there!  And put the barricades back up!"
"And what if they refuse to leave?"
"Then start arresting them!"
"Are you out of your mind?"

Why aren't they seen as Officer Friendly anymore?

Cherrie Shelton’s dog Patches, a two-year-old Jack Russell Terrier, approached officer Antoine Jones as he arrived at her home, she told FOX 31 in Albany. Before Shelton, of Albany, could finish telling the officer the dog wouldn’t bite, he had pulled out his gun and shot the dog.
Jones is 6 feet tall and weighs nearly 300 pounds, according to the report.
That's bad enough; what makes it even worse:
Georgia Dept. of Corrections told the news station in a statement that the officer’s force was justified: “An Albany Probation Officer was involved in an incident that required him to use use of force against an aggressive canine during a field visit. An incident report was filed and it was determined that the Probation Officer responded appropriately.”
This is their justification.  And I'll bet they get all butthurt when someone doesn't treat them with the respect they think they deserve.

Speaking of,
One attendee at the rally, LaDonna Hale Curzon from Virgina, wrote that even before Palin arrived at the rally she headlined, "both D.C. Metro and Park police attempted to shut down the event." She wrote that "two police cruisers blocked entrance into the WWII memorial, in an effort to stop truckers from arriving from the highway" and "four marked Secret Service vehicles arrived on the scene, joining dozens of law enforcements, who had already arrived, including a SWAT team dressed in full riot gear."

"Police blocked the road leading up to the WWII memorial from both directions," she wrote. "What a nice way to spend my Sunday morning and to see how our veterans are treated at their own memorial. Last week, the Obama administration opened the mall for immigration activist protest yet blocked WWII vets in wheelchairs to see the WWII memorial. What is happening to our country?!"

We warned you, dumbasses; and

The Washington State United Food and Commercial Workers Union has voted to authorize a strike because of Obamacare regulations. Approximately 30,000 workers could walk picket lines as early as next week and the vote to strike was approved by 98% of the membership.

Adoption is apparently only good if you keep in your place.
Said place being designated by the bigoted fools in the comments.

"Screw you NSPS clowns, we're cleaning up our property."

The long-term fallout from this 'let's compromise the hardware.  For security and The Children' crap is going to be bad.
And if the NSA says "We're not doing that!", who's going to believe them?

The reasons the Nobel Peace Prize doesn't mean squat anymore.

And that's all I got.  I shall now attempt to jump-start my brain for later in the day.
