Mope gets points for being the first to send news.
Why is Bin Laden’s son-in-law, Sulaiman Abu Ghaith being charged in a US criminal court, but Anwar Al-Awlaki, an American citizen, not given the same due process, instead being blown up by a drone strike?
Is it Opposite Day? Did I not get the freakin’ memo??
I picked a hell of a time to quit drinking.
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.
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.
Some of y’all know, just KNOW, that I will never, EVER, watch The Ring again. As long as I live. Ever. That gooey chick scared the living stuffing out of me for ten freakin’ days. She was one scary creature. But I can sleep just fine even after talking about her.
But not The Thing.
That gives me an absolutely chilling terror.
When this movie comes on, ALL of the lights in the house must be on, the dogs by my side, and at least two other people watching with me. Afterwards, I take TylenolPM™ to help me sleep. And why do I watch it? Because JOHN CARPENTER, that’s why. I have to give props to a man whose films always end badly.
So, what is your favorite scary monster, creature, thing? And remember, Obama is too obvious
Imagine if you will, that you decide to make a poster for a school project. And the subject of the poster is a map of gang violence crosslisted with demographic data. And your facts are readily available to you through the library and the census bureau. And you point out that the most violent gang activity is in the predominantly black neighborhoods.
Then imagine that the black gang members who attend your school see that poster, and decide to burn down the hallways, break windows, and cause bodily harm to those who get in their way.
And when the smoke clears, imagine the school decides to expel YOU, because you made the gang members angry enough to riot. You insulted them by pointing out the obvious. It’s ok for the gang members to know that, but NOT ok for the rest of the people to know that. That’s an open secret they want to keep.
Well, imagine no more.
Here’s the first line from the LA Times (not linking it, just follow the links if need to, but that whole story is slimy).
“Just after midnight Saturday morning, authorities descended on the Cerritos home of the man believed to be the filmmaker behind the anti-Muslim movie that has sparked protests and rioting in the Muslim world.”
Just after midnight?? REALLY??? And just why were there soooo many cameras at the ready?? Of course, he was “voluntarily” escorted away, for questioning, of course.
Do you see what happened?? This man, who has every right to make and put out a movie on freakin’ YOUTUBE, is blamed by this inept administration for the wilful rioting in the Middle East, which culminated in the killing and desecration of FOUR AMERICANS. And what does the administration do? Go after the killers? Noooooooooope.
This administration willingly submitted to the will of Allah.
You think I’m wrong? Well, look at it this way: Muslims decide to use this movie as an excuse to riot, destroy, and kill, because their so-called prophet was insulted. And what do Obama and Co. do? They give the Muslims what they want: punish the blasphemer, and apologize for his actions. So now, the rioting fucktards know that all they have to do is burn and pillage and kill, and we will do anything they ask.That is submission, the very definition of Islam.
Muslims (and I don’t add “extremists” for a reason you will read later) will always have an excuse to riot. ALWAYS. Because those who do not submit to Islam will always be infidels, and need to be eradicated from their version of a perfect world.
And in case you think I am lumping all Muslims together, ask yourselves this: just how many of the “moderate” Muslims who actually believe in “peace” are speaking against the violence? Their silence is deafening. Until they begin to speak out against the violence of their jihadist brethren, I will have issues.
That is a g0000000000gle interactive map of Muslim Protests since September 11, 2012. Click the link for embiggenification marvelosity.
And the administration thinks this is about a YouTube movie that has been in cyberspace for months?? Yeah, riiiiiiiight….
I can say that, because that anti-perspirant reeks.
Obama Campaign Call Affirms Money Anxiety
I gotta hand it to the Prez, though. He managed to install a personal phoneline in Air Force One so that he could campaign while travelling and not run afoul of the rules.
“If things continue as they have so far, I’ll be the first sitting president in modern history to be outspent in his reelection campaign,” he said, according to the report.
“The special interests that are financing my opponent’s campaign are just going to consolidate themselves,” he said. “They’re gonna run Congress and the White House.”
Just my opinion, but that’s not just whiny, but also sounds like he’s jealous!! After all, that’s his particular MO.
This is new territory for the Prez. He has always run as a challenger, not as an incumbent. And he is at a loss. But then again, what does he expect? A lot of the big donors who contributed to his campaign in 2008 can’t afford to donate this time around. The amount of millionaires has shrunk in recent years, thanks no doubt to this administrations’ policies.
Of course, that never stopped Teh Messiah™ from squeezing blood out of turnips.
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
