There is an issue with reaching the deadpool site at the moment. You can get there from here: http://deadpool.hookersandbooze.com/. Apologies…

Never, ever ignore what the other hand is doing. Why couldn’t this guy be on his way to Congress??
No, that’s not a directive, people.
The whole thing made me chuckle, but I laughed out loud at the Toyota. Why?
Because it’s not a Prius
Have a great Saturday!!
Graphic found at The Blacksphere’s Facebook page.
Because History has this Deja Vu thing going for it.
You think sure, but that was before we were a country and had the Second Amendment.
And I say sure, and that was before Executive Orders, Progressives, and Sandy Hook Elementary.
Never give up! Never surrender! And always remain vigilant.
They never let a crisis go to waste.
Several Democratic lawmakers called for a new push for U.S. gun restrictions on Sunday, including a ban on military-style assault weapons, in the wake of the Connecticut massacre in which 20 children and six adults were gunned down in a school.
Because ONLY “assault weapons” were used at the Sandy Hook terror attack. Yes, I do think it was a terror attack.
Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, the author of an assault-weapons ban that lapsed in 2004, said she would introduce new legislation this week. Senator Dick Durbin, the chamber’s No. 2 Democrat, said lawmakers would hold hearings on gun control, and several others said they would devote new attention to the long-ignored issue.
“I think we could be at a tipping point … where we might get something done,” Senator Charles Schumer, another top Senate Democrat, said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
Because the guns killed those adults and children. I find it ironic that the person calling for a new ban holds a permit to conceal carry.
Republican Representative Louie Gohmert said (when asked why citizens would need to own semi-automatic weapons), “Well, for the reason George Washington said: a free people should be an armed people. It ensures against the tyranny of the government, if they know that the biggest army is the American people.”
Gohmert added, “Once you start drawing the line, where do you stop? … Gun laws don’t work.”
Just ask Chicago or Washington, D.C.
They want to take away our right to bear arms? Fine, then take it away from every single person, starting with the Secret Service, LEOs, and other federal agents. Every politician has to give up their entitled security. But what about the bad guys, you ask?? Well, guarantee me they will give up their weapons, too, and you have got a deal!
The only type of gun control that works is the type where you hit your target center mass.
Some of the H&B readers and lurkers may be familiar with RFID, AKA Radio Frequency Identification. Basically, it’s the use of a microchip to detect your presence. Ranchers use this for cattle.
[T]he Northside Independent School District will be issuing RFID-equipped identification cards that the kids have to wear on lanyards any time they’re on campus. And then, in some corner of the principal’s office, the students show up as moving dots on a map of the screen like some real life game of Pac Man.
When NISD first proposed this, they defended it by masking it with concern for truant children. But the reality is, it is a way to keep taking money from the state. You see, school budgets are intertwined with attendance, and if kids are not in his or her seat when roll is called, that means the school doesn’t get money for having a kid in that seat.
Now, y’all may think that parents are ok with this because the schools are using it, right? Noooooooope. Parents were told, not even asked that this programs was to be implemented. Now, that was their first mistake. Their second mistake was implementing it at a magnet school. One very intelligent young woman stood up for her rights and refused to wear the lanyard with the tracking chip, and for that, she was expelled. She in turn took the case to court, and a judge will be ruling on her temporary injunction next week. And as it happens, someone decided to wreak a little havoc to bring attention to this rather obvious infringement on privacy.
Personally, I am not a fan of the entity known as Anonymous. In their quest for equilateral anarchy, they tend to leave a mess in their wake. But they are an equal opportunity pest, and sometimes they do hit a nail in a coffin pretty well. This Anon person makes a valid point: ASK THE PARENTS FIRST!!! They are the ones paying the taxes for the school system. Further, I have an issue with their whole “first period attendance” thing. According to my source, attendance is taken in the second period, because students do run late, have mishaps on the road, or buses can be late getting in. By second period, everyone who is at school is there anyway. Any student that has a doctor’s appointment, for example, is counted present when he or she check into the attendance office, so that excuse is weak at best.
The whole program reeks of control. Anyone who claims that this is for the safety of the children is either deluded, or in collusion. Just think what would happen if a pedophile hacked into the database. What’s next? Spying on students’ webcams?
Oh, wait…. that already happened.
Our state elections were something of a drama, mostly because we are still trying to figure out how 14,000 votes were cast in the desert west of here. All that aside, one thing I did notice was that every Democrat elected is trying to expand the government programs, and every Republican elected is trying to limit the power of the federal government in our state. You may think this is only natural, but there is one measure that is riling the feds even as I type.
Texas Liberty Preservation Act Would Prevent Indefinite Detention Without Trial
1200 WOAI news reports that [San Antonio State Representative Lyle] Larson has introduced what he calls the Texas Liberty Preservation Act, which prohibits any official in Texas, elected, appointed, or an employee, from participating in the detention without trial of any U.S. citizen.
That’s basically a “GFY”* to the Obama administration and the National Defense Authorization Act, specifically Sections 1021 and 1022 which gives power to the federal government to ‘indefinitely detain,’ without due process, any person.
For any reason.
Last I checked, that was a federal felony known as kidnapping. But I guess that as long as it’s the feds doing it, it’s ok. They wouldn’t ask for a ransom, either. They would just take your assets, including your reputation. Thankfully, other states are following suit. Virginia already has a law prohibiting the enforcement of those two sections. I find it ironic, considering its proximity to the
cesspool Washington, D.C. Of note, none of the Democratic lawmakers have voiced opposition to this bill. Oh, don’t think it’s because they recognize that the NDAA is encroaching on citizens’ rights. No, they recognize that non-citizens are also subject to it.
And we all know they can’t have that.
*Well, it doesn’t mean “good for you”
Yes, we are still in shock. Yes, we as conservatives underestimated the greed of those who believe they are entitled to everything by virtue of being in this country. Notice I did not say “being citizens”. Leeches abound regardless of citizenship.
But we will not be broken.
We have something no other country enjoys. I have lived and visited many places, and they all lack what we have here. It’s not pride. Having lived in Germany I witnessed how they lack pride of country, bringing out their flags only during the World Cup, and forgetting about countrymen such as Otto von Bismarck and Baron von Richthofen. You may counter with how the French are prideful braggarts and I would disagree. Oh, they have pride in their food and their language, and even of their citizenship, since they manage to hold those unlucky enough not to be born of French blood to be second class citizens. But country? Hell, they couldn’t tell me what building had been razed where the New Opera House stands. They think nothing of pissing against the wall of La Madeleine, not understanding the architectural and historical treasure it represents. To them, Napoleon is a dead guy, and Louis a common name. The Brits are not much better. They may rejoice in their former glory, but when it comes down to Socialism, they are quite happy to lay back and think of England. They carry so much guilt it shines like the sun off the Cliff of Dover.
No, we will not be broken. We have something they all lost long ago. Something they are unwilling to find, and unwilling to get back.
We have our American Spirit. And that, my friends, is something even the progressive culture can never take away. This cancer will eat at them, too. But unlike them, we will prevail, because it is in our veins to rise from the ashes and succeed.
Apparently, they are sick of this crap.
A new poll finds that 47 percent of New Yorkers say they are worse off financially than they were four years ago, compared to 37 percent who say their finances have improved.
Before y’all think they are waking up from the stupor, think again.
The Siena College poll released on Friday also found that 68 percent of New York state residents support raising the federal income tax for high earners.
And yet they do NOT understand why the wealthy are leaving New York in droves for places like Florida and Texas. But still, it is a small step, and I do have hope that someday the wonderful people of New York State will wake up to the fact that government is squashing them like cockroaches trying to drink a Big Slurp™.
Yes, that’s in New York City. No bets as to how long it stays up. However, the fact that it actually WAS put up should be cause for celebration, especially in that liberal
A word of advice? Start with removing the tin pot dictator y’all have as a mayor. The rest will fall into place
Sometimes I read an article and have to wonder at the wilful blindness of the writer. Take this one, for example:
California’s average gasoline price set a record Saturday of $4.614 for a gallon of regular, up 12.8 cents overnight – but anyone who filled up in the last few days probably isn’t surprised.
Gasoline prices skyrocketed after the Exxon Mobil refinery in Torrance was knocked offline Monday by a power outage. Other lingering refinery and pipeline problems also contributed to the soaring costs at the pump.
Gas goes up over 12 cents overnight, and they think it’s due to a refinery being offline for a couple of days? How appalling. It’s almost as if they don’t know that the last refinery built in the US was in 1976, or that envirowhackjobs have prevented the further manufacture of any refineries in this country, or that several refineries are so out of date that it would be far more economical to completely shut them down than to upgrade them as per California standards and rules.
Analysts say prices might begin leveling off next week as fuel traders digest the news that the Exxon refinery returned to service on Friday. But other refinery difficulties and maintenance could keep California’s prices significantly above those in other parts of the nation.
You know, I would be laughing in their face and rejoicing in what they are reaping, if not for the fact that everything they mandate seeps out to the rest of the country.
It’s Sunday, and Son’s friend stayed over so they could do something spectacular on Minecraft™, which means we get to go out for breakfast.
And y’all know plenty of bacon will be had by all, especially me. After this week, my rebellious side has been screaming, raging against the machine, and overall flipping the bird at our Nanny State©. I will enjoy it will I can, because one day in the not-too-distant future, this will be the ONLY way we will be allowed to enjoy the fatty goodness:
So remember, as y’all are having your wonderful Sunday breakfast, to give the finger in the general direction of Washington, D.C.
You know damn well I will be
