Harold Ramis dead at 69 of complications from autoimmune inflammatory vasculitis
Harold Ramis, the man behind numerous blockbuster films such as Ghostbusters and Groundhog’s Day,…
He was 85.
A true comedy genius, he passed away at the age of 91.
The former child star and diplomat has passed away at age of 85.
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
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
At which point do we feel like dumping more tea?
Sometimes one can easily brush a spiderweb off one’s eyes. Other times it’s not so easy, especially when the spiderweb is poisonous.
And from Lee Stranahan:
I want to know how it is that the law supports the hounding of people who tell the truth, reporting an actual fact that is available for anyone to read. I want to know why it is that posting a court decision available through public records is cause for damages.
Most of all, I want to know how it is that a convicted terrorist bomber gets grants from the Tides Foundation, the Barbra Streisand Foundation, and the Heinz Family Foundation totalling $100,000.
I suppose that in the eyes of those foundations, a man who bombs innocent civilians can be considered a freedom fighter.
Age has an advantage, but then again, gingers have no souls.
Seriously, don’t y’all think that would be epic???
Seriously, define Spring. Because this isn’t installing a vote of confidence here.
Egyptian military judges dropped convictions against Muslim Brotherhood presidential candidate Khairat el-Shater, clearing the nominee of the nation’s dominant political party to run in the election, the group’s lawyer said.
I understand that we over on this side of the world did see that an overthrow of Mubarak would leave a vacuum ripe for the Muslim Brotherhood to take. But it was also my understanding that the Egyptian military was against the takeover by the Muslim Brotherhood.
The Brotherhood said March 31 that el-Shater was its candidate for the presidential election that begins May 23 and May 24, making him one of the favorites to win and potentially increasing tensions between the once-banned group and the generals who currently rule the nation.
Why would military judges clear the way for their opposition?
It appears that some in the lower ranks and even not-so-low of the MB do not like the fact that their up and coming new leader is in fact, a millionaire. And no one seems to question how he has held on to his fortune while being incarcerated, and while Egypt’s economy is deteriorating at an alarming rate, having passed ludicrous speed and now approaching plaid. But Egypt has always been an anomaly in the region: practicing Islam while protecting idolatry for their economical use, decrying excess while enjoying the tourist dollars that Sharm al Sheik, the “Riviera of the Middle East”, brings in. It’s hypocritical, but then again, so is their so-called religion.
The sooner that hellhole goes to pot, the better. Chalk up another one for the Prez.
Well, I got nuthin’ for today, so I thought I would combine famous quotes with news links. It’s the bleach fumes, I’m sure.
That’s it for this morning. I have to get the pit ready for burning crap today. After all, tonight I will be celebrating Human Achievement Hour and giving the ecowackos a hearty flip of the bird which I will be barbequeing.
Enjoy your Saturday!!
Last night I slept so well, I didn’t hear the thunderstorm pass through. No dreams, no nightmares…..it was awesome.
Until I woke up to one.
IRS seeks 4,000 agents, $303 million for Obamacare
This, as Obamacare goes down in flames. You would think that a bureaucracy of government would be smart enough not to tip its hand when it comes to taxpayer money, especially this one. Apparently last year the IRS’ customer service rating slipped a bit, which I find shocking, really. I had no idea anyone approved of it.
Now, I’m sure that the rating has gone down due to the unreadable and often misunderstood tax code that we peons have to use. More people call for help, more people ask to be guided through the maze, more people complaining of the sheer stupidity of it. But if that is the case, as the article suggests, why not ask for more agents for that reason??
The Internal Revenue Service wants to add about 4,000 agents to hunt down tax cheats and still plans to spend $303 million building a system to oversee Obamacare even though its future looks bleak in the U.S. Supreme Court.
On the $303 million for Obamacare, the GAO said it will “continue the development of new systems and modifications of existing systems required to support new tax credits.”
They don’t bother hiding any more.
