Dammit, one of my gloves is missing

Good ones I've had for years.  And I just found out the place I got them doesn't carry them anymore...

I need cheering up

No idea if this is true,

but it's a damn good question.

Yeah, there's racism here, but it's not

what this idiot is screeching about.

Wonder how much this idiot is being paid to poison the minds of students, and for a degree that's not really worth the cost of the paper it's printed on?

Up in Progressive-Land,
The state Government Accountability Board’s top officials proceeded with a secret probe into coordination between Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign and conservative political groups for months without authorization from the six retired judges who run the board, court records unsealed Friday allege.

The documents filed by a target of the investigation also allege that the board voted to end its involvement in the probe in July but that staff continued to work on it.
Read the 'defense' from one of the judges; if that's his usual level of reasoning, wonder what his reversal rate was?

'Gun violence' and 'vigilante action', oh my!  Slight problem with that narrative:
Of course, had the grandfather listened to Goodwin, his wife and three grandsons would have been at the mercy of two brazen invaders breaking into their home. The 18-year-old intruder the boy shot was reportedly trying to enter through a rear window when he ignored a warning to stop. His brother, who fled the scene, was reportedly out on probation for previous burglary attempts on the home, and was tracked down via the electronic monitor he was mandated to wear while out on bond.

"Have empathy and understanding" my ass

The death penalty and lashing by whip features prominently into IS’s legal code, which is governed by Sharia law.
“Blasphemy against Allah,” for instance, is punishable by death, according to the legal code provided by MEMRI.
Similarly, “blasphemy against the prophet Mohammed” also guarantees death—“even in the accuser repents,” according to the code. The same punishment is doled out for blasphemy against Islam.
Adultery also remains a capital crime under IS’ code.
An adulterer will face “stoning until death” if he or she was married at the time and “100 lashes and exile” if unmarried.
Sodomy and, in particular, homosexuality will also be met by death “for the person committing the act, as well as for the one receiving it.”
Etc.   And 'All cultures are Equal!'

Speaking of the Religion of Submission, in a shocking turn it seems the wife-murdering* jihadi-minded clown in Australia had the temerity to obtain a gun illegally for his activities; who could have foreseen such a thing?

And some are getting tired of bad guys getting guns while honest citizens are treated like untrustworthy subjects to be ruled.

And last,

Jingle Bells, Merry Seasons, etc. Bah.

After having to deal with some of the crowds today, I'm out of holiday cheer; I'm going for data investigation

I'd file suit too, but I'd include Ronald Ritchie, the nasty bastard who started it.

The family of John Crawford, a Walmart customer gunned down seemingly without warning by Beavercreek, Ohio police this past summer, is filing a federal civil rights lawsuit on his behalf.
That one would deal with the officer who shot him, apparently without warning, and then lied about why he fired.
Beavercreek police have tried to claim that Crawford was shot when he refused to listen to repeated commands, and then turned towards officers in an aggressive manner.

Those claims run counter to video cameras that captured the shooting, which showed officer Williams “slicing the pie” with an AR-15 as he turned a corner, then shooting Crawford virtually on sight. Crawford never turned until bullets struck his body.

However, something also needs to be done about Detective Rodney Curd, who appears to be a sorry bastard all on his own.
Can you say "Tell me something to implicate your dead boyfriend, or else!" ?

And this is how the piece of shit tells her her boyfriend is dead:
After more than an hour and a half of questioning and statement-taking, Curd finally told Thomas that Crawford, 22, had died.

“As a result of his actions, he is gone,” said the detective, as she slumped in her chair and cried.
Miserable piece of shit excuse for a lawman.

Hey, Ronald Ritchie, how does it feel do know that you not only helped cause two people to die, but cause all this other anguish as well?

Sounds about right

...Kim Jong-Un has just vaporized a Hollywood blockbuster as totally as if one of his No Dong missiles had taken out the studio. As it is, the fellows with no dong turned out to be the executives of Sony Pictures.

In my new book The [Un]documented Mark Steyn... I have an entire section called "Last Laughs" - on banned jokes, canceled comedies, the plays we'll never see, the books we'll never read. On page 363, I quote Stephen Breyer, one of the genius jurists of America's Supreme Court, arguing that maybe free speech didn't extend to upsetting Islam - that provoking Muslims was a classic example of "shouting fire in a crowded theatre". And I commented:
More importantly, the logic of Breyer's halfwit intervention is to incentivize violence, and undermine law itself. What he seems to be telling the world is that Americans' constitutional rights will bend to intimidation...
It is a basic rule of life that if you reward bad behavior, you get more of it.

Speaking of, Eric Holder got away with Fast & Furious, and the perjury and false documents and piles of dead bodies, and we're getting more of the slimy bastard.
A rifle found in the abandoned car came from Attorney General Eric Holder’s Fast and Furious program, which put firearms into the black market on the Southern border in a failed attempt to track firearm circulation among Mexican drug cartels. The AK-47 style rifle was purchased in 2009 by Sean Christopher Seward, who pled guilty to trafficking firearms that he bought while the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms was monitoring his activities as part of Fast and Furious.

Why you're not Officer Friendly anymore, Reason #281:

Incompetence, hiding from responsibility, "WE'RE not responsible for damages", etc.  Also a reason why some judges should be stripped of that black robe and beaten with clubs by the people they've harmed.
Bou Bou’s parents say they were detained by the police for nearly two hours. When they arrived at the hospital they were shocked to learn the truth about their son’s injuries. 

“Why couldn't [the police] just be honest with us and tell us what happened?” asked Alecia Phonesavanh.
Because they didn't have the balls to face you with what they'd done.

As Bou Bou lay in the hospital, agent Nikki Autry resigned from her job with the Mountain Judicial Circuit’s drug unit. Judge James Butterworth, the chief magistrate of Habersham County, who signed the “no-knock” warrant, announced his retirement within days of the raid.
The drug task force that gathered that intelligence was disbanded four months after the raid that injured Bou Bou Phonesavanh. It also happened to be the day after “20/20” arrived in Habersham County to investigate.
Gee, you'd almost think they had things to hide, wouldn't you?

Miserable excuses for lawmen and judges.  And, so far, they've not faced any personal responsibility for the damage they've done.  Other than "Oh, we feel so bad!  Pray for us!" from the idiot in charge.

"We represent the PEOPLE and SAFETY! But you can't know who we are."

The new group, which claims to be non-partisan, will work to push new gun restrictions at the state level. But the coalition has one major problem – they will not let anyone know who they are.

ASLGVP boasts having 200 members from all 50 states but the group will not release a list of their membership, due to a fear of “political backlash.” So, outside of the eight members that participated in the inaugural press conference, no one knows who is or is not a member of this group. We are not witnessing a “Profiles in Courage” moment here.
"We're doing important work, but we're afraid the commoners won't agree and won't vote for us, so who belongs is classified."

In Washington with I594:
Lewis County Prosecutor Jonathan Meyer said “The Lewis County Prosecuting Attorney’ Office will not make criminals out of the hardworking citizens of Lewis County. Where I-594 attempts to criminalize every-day activities, I, in the exercise of my prosecutorial discretion, will not charge individuals with these types of violations. At the same time, make no mistake I will hold accountable those who, in violation of this initiative, knowingly put guns in the hands of criminals.

Y'know, if you boil this down it's "Those people can't keep up with the non-colored students, so we need to make special considerations for their grades."  And if someone not 'academic and progressive' made such a statement it'd be condemned for the racist and insulting statement it is.

If I attended that university, and had to listen to a university bigshot spew this bigoted crap, I'd be thinking about filing a complaint.  Or talking to my legislators about the place.  Or both.

Well, fired and prosecuted sounds about right

for arresting and tazing someone over a freakin' EXPIRED INSPECTION STICKER...

Makes it even worse that, yes, the damn thing was exempt.

I notice these silly bastards weren't volunteering

to be one of the citizens deported to make room.
“Please sign our petition for President Obama to deport one American citizen, in exchange for one undocumented immigrant,” read the petition. “Everyone must be allowed a shot at the ‘American Dream.’ Americans should not be greedy. Let us right the wrongs of our past and make another’s dreams come true.”

“It makes sense,” one student told Campus Reform. “Like, I’ve noticed that there is a lot of like hatred against undocumented immigrants and it’s not necessarily their fault.”

A French troops' view of our guys in Afghanistan

So what DID music/singing sound like in Babylon?  This may well be close.  Music and language picked up from clay tablets and inferred from later known data... beautiful.  Just hope it's at least close.

Canada has problems with assholes with badges, too.  This pisses me off:
Watson refused to produce his notes from the case to the Special Investigation Unit, which declined to press charges against him.

“Our records show he came in for an interview but he would not provide his notes,” SIU spokesperson Jasbir Brar told the QMI Agency. “That is within his legal rights.”
So he comes in to the SIU of the department and says "Screw you, you can't see my notes", and no charges.  Isn't that just friggin' wonderful?  Wonder what kind of union agreement lets him get away with that?  And can she sue his ass off, at least?

Next time someone starts that "Obama hasn't used many Executive Orders" line,

show them this:
President Obama has issued a form of executive action known as the presidential memorandum more often than any other president in history — using it to take unilateral action even as he has signed fewer executive orders.

When these two forms of directives are taken together, Obama is on track to take more high-level executive actions than any president since Harry Truman battled the "Do Nothing Congress" almost seven decades ago, according to a USA TODAY review of presidential documents.

Obama has issued executive orders to give federal employees the day after Christmas off, to impose economic sanctions and to determine how national secrets are classified. He's used presidential memoranda to make policy on gun control, immigration and labor regulations. Tuesday, he used a memorandum to declare Bristol Bay, Alaska, off-limits to oil and gas exploration.

Short version: "We skipped classes and studying to loot and bu- to protest about Ferguson and such, so it's not fair we should fail our tests!"  Response from school: "Bullshit."

That they even considered it isn't good, but at least they didn't cave.

Things you don't often read: (link updated)

It is also hypergolic with such things as cloth, wood, and test engineers, not to mention asbestos, sand, and water-with which it reacts explosively.

Found over here; and I don't want to mess with it either.

Added: some having trouble with the link, here's another

Dear Harvard Law student: it's not that we think you weak,

or sensitive, or strong; we think you're a whiny little bitch.

The real world won't hold off for your tender feelings; deal with it.

Sincerely, etc.

Did Obama & Co. not remember this,

not care, or figure this way they could backhand the troops while 'praising' them?

Go to the base where his good friends and advisors planned a mass-murder to tell the troops how great he thinks they are...

Just wonderful, isn't it?

The people Hillary Clinton and that other leftist idiot say we should apologize to

and try to work with...
The Taliban has killed dozens of children at a Peshawar school in a revenge mission for Pakistani schoolgirl activist Malala Yousafzai being awarded the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize. 

Ahmed Rashid, an expert on the Islamic militants, told the BBC the insurgents had various reasons to attack the school, one of which was to send a message to the supporters of Malala, who advocates education for women and children.
The apology should consist of a daisy cutter dropped on their camp.  Or just plaster their home valley with Rockeyes.

Well, of course they downplayed it; it doesn't fit the 'white privilege' and 'evil fraternities' narrative.

Which doesn't do any good for the raped and murdered, but hey, there are priorities!

Why you're not seen as Officer Friendly anymore, Reason #176:

You're not exactly a friendly sort, and use "Don't make me fear for my safety!" as a threat against people.  And a pushy bastard trying to make people do something you can arrest them for.

I could see "Sir, you're standing in the street, can you move so you don't get run over" or something like that; especially with all the pressure and noise on that department right now, the implied threats are NOT a good idea.  Neither is pushing people, trying to make them do something you can call a threat/violation/whatever so you can put them in jail(after all, booking them is indoors, whereas writing the tickets means standing out in the damp).

$100(not counting taxes) .308 suppressor

Looks downright interesting

Found thanks to Uncle

Why you're not Officer Friendly anymore, Reason #318:

You're a bigoted asshole who abuses the law for your own political beliefs.

Of course, the miserable excuses for lawmen didn't have to pay this out of their own pockets, oh no; the local taxpayers footed the bill.  As usual.

He's now a good terrorist, assuming ambient temperature

UPDATE. Police confirm that the siege is over.Four people are understood to be injured, including one police officer. 

UPDATE II. To no great surprise, the now-dead terrorist turns out to have been quite a piece of work:
Self-described cleric, Man Maron Monis, 50, first came to attention of police when he penned poisonous letters to the family of dead Australian soldiers.
Last year he was charged with being an accessory to the murder of his ex-wife and mother of two.

Just saw a news report about 'lights go out in White House',

and my first thought was "Are the talking about the President or VP?"

'Course, Bidens' lights have been out for years

Kind of like clockwork: hostage situation involving muslim terrorists,

and the warning from 'experts'?
Racist attacks targeting Australia’s Muslim community are “quite likely” in response to the unfolding hostage crisis at the Lindt Chocolat Cafe in central Sydney, a terrorism expert says.
Ben Rich, a researcher into political violence at Monash University’s School of Social Sciences, said some Australian Muslims could face reprisal due to the incident.

“I can’t say to what extent it’s going to be, but I’d say it’s quite likely,” Mr Rich told AAP.
Yep.  Still hostages being held, but the big problem is this.  Right.  Just like every other terrorist incident where we're warned about the 'racist' attacks against whole communities sure to come that never materialize.

Stuff on the situation from Tim Blair.

And the guy in charge has been identified:
The 49-year-old man lives in southwest Sydney, but is originally from Iran and a self-proclaimed sheik, and also sent hate mail to the families of Australian dead soldiers between 2007 and 2009, according to The Daily Telegraph. 

The seige in the Lindt cafe in Martin Place on Monday follows an unsuccessful attempt to have these charges overturned in the High Court on Friday, The Age reported.

Sodom on the Potomac and Chief Lanier:

If you're not rich and connected, screw you peasants, you can't have a permit.

Lanier, you might remember, wanted to let Gregory get away with having an illegal magazine in DC.  And did nothing to prevent Feinstein & Co. bringing in illegal 'assault weapons' for a dog & pony show.  But be a commoner in fear for your life, well, you don't count.

Mr. VanDiver, you can kiss my ass.

And as to your " I SERVED in the NAVY!" as your claim to authority, here's my response: I give John McCain the respect he earned for his service; that does not mean he gets a pass for the crap he's done as a politician.  If I don't give him a pass, or defer to him because of his service, why the hell would I do it for you?

And that "I want to trash part of the Constitution FOR THE CHILDREN!" crap stinks even worse now than it used to.
