One last thing:

The Illustrated Guide to Gun Control, found thanks to Jennifer. Who, at that link is raising funds for a furry critter with a problem.  Go see.

I tend to go long enough between actual injuries

that I forget how much they take out of you.
Plus, I don't heal as fast as I used to.

I can type normally, but trying to rake, or shovel, or any of that stuff?  Forget it.  What pulls on the good shoulder pulls on the bad shoulder, and I say bad things.  Working a loading press?  Not yet.  And by evening the  accumulated stress of the day makes it ache.  A lot.  Like now.

I will, however, keep at this long enough for the next data set of The(NSFW) Experiment(it takes my mind off things):

So Lois Lerner is indeed a felon;

anybody want to bet this Justice Department and IRS won't do squat about it?
Unless they're pushed REALLY hard, then maybe.

"How dare you mention toy guns on Bookface!  To court with you!"

Something to bring up when Democrats bitch and whine about Republicans 'wanting to harm the country for political purposes!'
Once more, they accuse others of what they actually do.

One more "What happed to my Lightworker, my Savior?" idiot.

Back then the fascist was allowed to speak; today the fascists shut people up on the same campus.

In Idiots With Badges for today, we have Interim Police Chief Ruben Santiago, Columbia PD, South Carolina:
“Maybe u should arrest the people shooting people in 5 points instead of worrying about a stoner that’s not bothering anyone,” he wrote. “It’ll be legal here one day anyway.”

It certainly was a critical and snarky comment by Whitmer, but was it enough “reasonable suspicion” for police to believe he “might be a criminal?” That’s what Santiago claimed in a reply:
“@Brandon whitmer, we have arrested all of the violent offenders in Five Points. Thank you for sharing your views and giving us reasonable suspicion to believe you might be a criminal, we will work on finding you.”
Quickly deleted, then followed by a defense of the threat, then to Popehat:
...Chief was trying to say that he puts would-be-criminals on notice — if you commit a crime or plan to commit one, CPD will work hard to investigate and press charges according to the law.
No, that's NOT what Chief said, dumbass; and I think you know it.  When he threatens to find someone, then later the defense says
Why would someone feel threaten if you are not doing anything wrong?
 Well, then, you won't mind some citizens showing up and searching your office, will you?
You would mind?  Why, are you doing something wrong?  If not, why do you mind?

And work on your spelling while you're thinking of ways to avenge yourself on people who don't kiss your ass.

One of the people advising DHS on important matters says the US is a muslim nation.

Sen. Warner: a true follower of the taqiyya President

“Optima has informed us it is going to be canceled next year. They gave us ACA compliant options. We are not eligible to for subsidies because I do get offered a ‘family plan’ at work and by ACA rules only the employee portion is factored in when calculating whether the plan is ‘affordable.’ The closest plan is a $3250 individual/$6500 family deductible for $674.39. That is a 325 percent increase in our premiums!” the Virginian wrote. “The worst part is that I wrote Senator Mark Warner and told him about this.”

Records reveal that Warner, who voted for Obamacare, previously vowed to oppose any reform that would cancel Americans’ pre-existing plans.

The God-kinglet made another decree; get ready to get screwed some more on energy.

 Judge Duffey: one more dirtbag in a black robe.

More on that 13-year old shot in California:
He once accidentally shot himself in the leg in 1995 while on duty with the Sheriff’s Office – reportedly while holstering a gun. However, officials said he has not fired upon a suspect in 24 years with the agency, where he serves as a field training officer for new recruits and trains colleagues to shoot at the department’s gun range.
This is just too good. He is an expert on firearms – and he shot himself in the leg. So let’s cover some details on the shooting itself.  Here is the one you really need to know.
Ethan Oliver, who lives across the street from where the shooting occurred, said he heard two gunshots, and while Lopez was on the ground the deputies “went at it again and unloaded like six to seven shots,” reported.
If true...

That picture of the cop sticking a rifle in a guys face?  A bit more background:
Four law-enforcement officers were wounded Friday in a suburb of Sacramento, Calif., during an attempt to take a wanted gang member into custody.
The shooting occurred in Roseville, a suburb about 20 miles northeast of the state capital.
Helicopters circled overhead and armored vehicles and other police cars flocked to the area following an initial report that a U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent had been shot.
A sporadic gun battle lasted into the night and the commotion snarled traffic for hours. Police responded by setting up a checkpoint and pointing guns at motorists, as this Associated Press photo shows.
Because nothing says Protect and Serve like endangering lives for the offense of having to drive through a checkpoint.

You can't be trusted to carry a gun for self-defense on campus, but they don't even have a duty to WARN you, let alone protect you...

(forgot to post this earlier, so it should've been BEFORE the 'screw it' pictures; oh well)

I can type normally now, but

mowing the yard with one arm is a PITA.
Yes, it needed cutting.  No, nobody handy.  Didn't take long, at least.  The shoulder's much better, but still hurts to sneeze or cough.  And I don't dare try to lift anything heavier than a frying pan(non-cast iron) with the left.

Short time ago on bookface I was informed that
People losing the insurance they wanted to keep was all the fault of the insurance companies.
Because the companies are greedy and really want to piss off their customers.
And Obama has nothing to do with it.
It's because the companies have bought off the politicians and this is so they can sell more-expensive policies.
But even though that would mean Obama is bought & paid for, he's blameless.
And it's all for our own good, anyway, so shut up.

Being sick to death of people who'll make excuses for him for, well, ANYTHING, and people who might(they think) get a subsidy for insurance so "Screw the people losing money to help pay for my policy, I love it!", I shall now just post some stuff to take my mind off it.

That defender of liberty Feinstein

basically wants to rubber-stamp the NSA lying and spying on everyone.
Makes you wonder what she's getting out of it.

I suspect that Obama’s core belief — his key religious value, if you will — is an American form of taqiyya — the Muslim dictate that it is permissible to lie to non-believers for the preservation of Islam. He believes in left-wing taqiyya. (Ironically, taqiyya is largely Shiite and Obama wishes to negotiate with Shiite Iran, masters of the lie.)

Now I do not think for a second that Obama is a Muslim any more than I think he is a Christian. He is a typical postmodern agnostic who only goes to church — and then rarely — for political purposes. But he grew up in the Islamic world in the midst of the psychological climate of taqiyya, with preservation of the group taking precedence over even the hint of democracy. And that climate harmonized completely with his other influences — anti-imperialism augmented by Alinksyite methods, themselves anti-democratic.

He never had a moral basis for honesty. Lying, from the Choom Gang through Reverend Wright and beyond, was his lifestyle. And he had the consolation that he was lying for a better good. No one ever told him otherwise. If that goes on for long enough, you lose contact with truth. It becomes almost a non-existent phenomenon, an irrelevancy.
In a very real way, Obama’s confluence of influences has replaced traditional religion and become a religion — with everything he does based on faith, but not a faith that has anything to do with God.

Some of the ways the food police have been absolutely full of crap.

Three Days in the Shoes of a Gun Activist
Anyway, back to Shannon. Another MDA supporter had repeated my assertion that there wasn't a lot of work with suicide awareness in the campaign, and Mrs. Watts stated that "Few of daily shootings" are the result of mental health issues. 61% of gun deaths are suicides, yet she asserts that "few" of the deaths from guns are a result of mental health issues. I asked for clarification, and she informed me that suicide is not the issue - gun violence is. So, in essence, the founder of Moms Demand Action has clearly stated that they're not concerned about suicides or helping prevent suicides - they're just concerned about guns. Even though suicides make up 61% of the gun deaths in the country.

Probably the most shocking thing is that shortly after this, I was blocked by both individuals I was conversing with. I was told I don't really support their cause, and that I was likely a "250lb bubba" that wishes I was a female. All of this, in spite of the fact I never said anything negative about gun control, never suggested they do less to work towards gun control, and consistently stated that I believe gun control will work in all areas but suicides. Suggesting they do something as simple as starting to also campaign towards suicide awareness, given that it's the leading cause of death by guns, means that I don't support their group and I am counter to their purpose. And I feel I should reiterate, this isn't just some random gun control advocate. This is the founder of Moms Demand Action.

From Thirdpower
Two Universities in nations that adamantly support gun control ask if white US gun owners are racist.
You can guess the result even before looking at the headline.  
Racism, Gun Ownership and Gun Control: Biased Attitudes in US Whites May Influence Policy Decisions
Color me shocked.

I've heard arguments on both sides of this; that Obama is getting rid of officers who don't/won't/might not go along, and that it's just officers caught doing something wrong being pushed out.

What to do after a defensive shooting

3-part article

Trick or friggin' Treat, people! And there's no treat!

Section 1251 of the Affordable Care Act contains what’s called a “grandfather” provision that, in theory, allows people to keep their existing plans if they like them. But subsequent regulations from the Obama administration interpreted that provision so narrowly as to prevent most plans from gaining this protection.

“The Departments’ mid-range estimate is that 66 percent of small employer plans and 45 percent of large employer plans will relinquish their grandfather status by the end of 2013,” wrote the administration on page 34,552 of the Register. All in all, more than half of employer-sponsored plans will lose their “grandfather status” and become illegal. According to the Congressional Budget Office, 156 million Americans—more than half the population—was covered by employer-sponsored insurance in 2013.

Another 25 million people, according to the CBO, have “nongroup and other” forms of insurance; that is to say, they participate in the market for individually-purchased insurance. In this market, the administration projected that “40 to 67 percent” of individually-purchased plans would lose their Obamacare-sanctioned “grandfather status” and become illegal, solely due to the fact that there is a high turnover of participants and insurance arrangements in this market. (Plans purchased after March 23, 2010 do not benefit from the “grandfather” clause.) The real turnover rate would be higher, because plans can lose their grandfather status for a number of other reasons.

And the bastards are now claiming their lies weren't really lies, and even if they were it's for your own good, so shut up  and be a good, obedient peasant bowing to the lord.
Now, supporters of the law are offering a different argument. “We didn’t really mean it when we said you could keep your plan,” they say, “but it doesn’t matter, because the coverage you’re going to get under Obamacare will be better than the coverage you had before.”
But that’s not true. Obamacare forces insurers to offer services that most Americans don’t need, don’t want, and won’t use, for a higher price. Bob Laszewski, in a revealing blog post, wrote about the cancellation of his own health coverage. “Right now,” he wrote, “I have ‘Cadillac’ health insurance. I can access every provider in the national Blue Cross network—about every doc and hospital in America—without a referral and without higher deductibles and co-pays.”
But his plan is being canceled. His new, Obamacare-compatible plan has a $500 higher deductible, and a narrower physician and hospital network that restricts out-of-town providers. And yet it costs 66 percent more than his current plan. “Mr. President,” he writes, “I really like my health plan and I would like to keep it. Can you help me out here?”

Yeah, Obama lied.

Deliberately, repeatedly and with malice.

I know you're not surprised, but some people are flat amazed.
Or lying to cover up that they knew, but wanted it to happen anyway; I wonder which?

Oh, and if you're stuck in Obamacare and move to another state, you're REALLY screwed.

Over at Ace, another "It enrolled me in Medicaid even though I'm not eligible and NOBODY can help me with this shit."

Prosecutor didn't like being referred to as 'the government'; the response.

They tracked down a IRS employee who broke the law; now they have to get the Justice Department and IRS to give a rats ass and do something about it.

That's an interesting piece of engineering on the K-31

to put the scope right over the bore:

I'd say the answer

is 'Yes'.
Hey, we're talking about people who think having a brick of .22s means you should have a arsenal license; I wouldn't put much of anything past them.

Carter II really would've been an improvement; this President makes Nixon look like a Boy Scout.

In a pigs ass it is...
An internal government memo obtained by The Associated Press shows administration officials were concerned that a lack of testing posed a "high" security risk for President Barack Obama's new health insurance website.
The Sept. 27 memo to Medicare chief Marylin Tavenner said a website contractor wasn't able to test all the security controls in one complete version of the system.
Insufficient testing "exposed a level of uncertainty that can be deemed as a high risk," the memo said.
The memo recommended setting up a security team to address risks, conduct daily tests, and a full security test within two to three months of going live.
At a congressional hearing, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the site's security certification is temporary, but asserted consumers' personal information is secure.

This piece of shit also enrolls you in programs without your knowledge.  Or ability to change.

Because some judge will always know what treatments are in your best interest.

So why did John Effing Kerry sign a treaty he knew was dead

in the Senate?  This is why:
Justice Department attorneys are advancing an argument at the Supreme Court that could allow the government to invoke international treaties as a legal basis for policies such as gun control that conflict with the U.S. Constitution, according to Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.

Their argument is that a law implementing an international treaty signed by the U.S. allows the federal government to prosecute a criminal case that would normally be handled by state or local authorities.
All that "Hey, the Senate won't pass it so what're you worried about?" noise?  Show this to the people saying it.

And yeah, it would be in direct conflict with the Constitution; anyone think that'll bother this administration?  This Justice Department?

Don't negotiate with gun bigots and control freaks like Emanuel;

they'll do anything they can to screw as many people as possible out of their 2nd Amendment rights.

Boiled down: "We knew if we told the truth you wouldn't like it, so we lied(still are).  So shut up; your old insurance wasn't really insurance since it didn't have all the crap we want it to, so you're not actually losing your old police you're being herde- ah, transitioned to Obamacare(whether you want it or not)."

Oh yeah, I know most of those:
21 Things that only people who carry concealed would understand

Oh, crp.  Badly-sprained shoulder + sneeze = pain.

Saw some article about the death watch for Sebelius: 'When will she be fired, is Obama too loyal(snerk... what moron wrote that after all the people under the bus?) to fire her, will she be pressured out', etc.  Ever heard the song Joe the Georgian?  Second verse:
He steered us through the shadows, upon an angry tide,
And cast us one by one over the side.
Sounds familiar, doesn't it?

"Yes, we've been lying, but don't consider it a lie,

consider it just not precise enough to cover your getting screwed."

When he heard about the IRS abusing authority and breaking laws, he was shocked, SHOCKED! about it(doesn't look much like Renault, does he?)
Now his excuse for just about everything:*
The problem for the President is that this has become his administration's standard M.O. for virtually every bit of unpleasant news. The IRS is targeting conservatives?  The President didn't know. The DOJ is spying on reporters?  The President didn't know. The Obamacare website is a train wreck? The President didn't know. The U.S. is running guns to Mexican drug lords? The President didn't know. The NSA is tapping the German Chancellor's phone? We are SHOCKED to learn this!

In fact, he seems to learn of virtually everything "the same way most people do" - by watching the news.

Frankly, this just isn't cutting it anymore. By claiming that he's in the dark in his own White House, Obama has basically told us one of two things.
  A: He's lying, he knows exactly what's going on, and he both authorizes it and supports it.
  B: He's an absentee President who's abdicated his responsibilities to such a degree that he's presiding over a completely lawless administration.

Speaking of the IRS, "Give us more money, or else this'll screw up even worse than it's already going to."
I said a long time ago, "If the IRS thinks it's hated now, wait till they start acting as Obamacare enforcers." 

Harry Reid(Slimy Bastard D-NV) can call you a terrorist, a hostage-taker and anything else that comes to mind, but don't you dare reciprocate!  Then you're using childish language and damaging the comity of the Senate.

Any idea what this shell is?  I'm thinking some kind of HE.

*Gimme a break, I don't have photoshop and couldn't find his face in a Renault uniform

When you start training cops to act like Easy Company

in occupied territory, this is what you get.  Especially when you throw in the political bullshit.
Increasingly, the US government’s many police forces (often state and local ones as well) operate militarily and are trained to treat ordinary citizens as enemies. At the same time, the people from whom the government personnel take their cues routinely describe those who differ from them socially and politically as illegitimate, criminal, even terrorists. Though these developments have separate roots, the post-9/11 state of no-win war against anonymous enemies has given them momentum. The longer it goes on, the more they converge and set in motion a spiral of civil strife all too well known in history, a spiral ever more difficult to stop short of civil war. Even now ordinary Americans are liable to being disadvantaged, hurt or even killed by their government as never before.

Speaking of, from Dave Codrea on bookface:
Apparently beating up old ladies in New Orleans is just the warmup for the CHP.

I'm all out of sympathy: the proper response to her is "You were warned, dumbass."

When Obama or one of his minions(controllers, whatever) mentions 'our federal family'

or some such, anyone else feel a need to check their ammo supply?

Now that it's a Approved Media News Source reporting it,

will the left stop calling names at people who point out Obama, Clinton and Rice are liars?
60 Minutes had an absolutely devastating report on the Obama administration’s failure to protect Ambassador Chris Stevens and other Americans in Benghazi.

I’ll post the video when available (update – available and added), but the heart of the report is that there were clear and unequivocal warnings which were ignored, and the Obama administration lied about these warnings after the attack.

Hillary and Obama blamed a video and stood by the caskets perpetuating that lie.

And remember how almost all of the media obsessed with Mitt Romney’s statement over Benghazi, and colluded to ask Romney gotcha questions while downplaying and obfuscating what really happened.

60 Minutes said its investigation took almost a year.

"How dare you step off the reservation and tell the truth!"
 And who's right in the middle of it?
The New York Times Magazine commissioned, then canceled, a piece from Jimenez in 2004. (The editor claims it wasn’t any good.) But ABC’s “20/20” ran with a story Jimenez produced, which won two major broadcasting awards. Yet the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Hatewatch blog recently accused Jimenez of serving as a lapdog of “right-wing pundits, radio hosts and bloggers.”

Speaking of telling the truth, does this mean NBC is now a 'discredited right-wing news source', or will they just be ignored(after getting threats from the White House)?
None of this should come as a shock to the Obama administration. The law states that policies in effect as of March 23, 2010 will be “grandfathered,” meaning consumers can keep those policies even though they don’t meet requirements of the new health care law. But the Department of Health and Human Services then wrote regulations that narrowed that provision, by saying that if any part of a policy was significantly changed since that date -- the deductible, co-pay, or benefits, for example -- the policy would not be grandfathered.

Buried in Obamacare regulations from July 2010 is an estimate that because of normal turnover in the individual insurance market, “40 to 67 percent” of customers will not be able to keep their policy. And because many policies will have been changed since the key date, “the percentage of individual market policies losing grandfather status in a given year exceeds the 40 to 67 percent range.”  

That means the administration knew that more than 40 to 67 percent of those in the individual market would not be able to keep their plans, even if they liked them.
Which means, again, Obama lied.  Over and over and over.

Talked to a Soldier a while back who told me about various amounts of bullshit in the unit he'd been transferred to, and "The colonel keeps asking why their reenlistment rate sucks."  Today ran across this:
Learned Helplessness in the Military, Part 1 and Part 2.
Makes you wonder how many good people the Army has lost because they hit the point of being unable to tolerate any more of of this shit.

The proper response to 'Do you forgive him?'

is 'Screw Rubio; he betrayed us once, he'll do it again, just like a minime McCain.'

Ran across this the other day; some people were all butthurt that Mike Rowe would actually go on Beck's show, and Rowe has a response:
If you want a detailed answer to your question, please take a moment to read my earlier reply to Bob Reidel, another crestfallen soul who couldn’t reconcile my association with a TV host that he personally despised. As you read it (out loud, if possible, and in a public place), kindly replace the words “Bob Reidel” with “Shannon K. Walsh,” and “Bill Maher” with “Glenn Beck.” But prepare yourself – you might be forced to conclude that my true objective here has little to do with winning or losing your approval.
More goodness in the story.

Further data points have been found

And The Experiment continues

Yeah, that's some set of woofers
