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

Just when you think the journolistic intelligensia can’t be more ridiculous, they prove us dead wrong:
So enthused about promoting the far-left protests, ABC anchor Diane Sawyer on Monday night’s World News championed “the Occupy Wall Street movement” by ludicrously claiming that “as of tonight, it has spread to more than 250 American cities, more than a thousand countries — every continent but Antarctica.”
Excuse me?? A thousand countries?? What planet is she talking about?? Because last I checked, there were less than 200 countries on her precious Gaia. I’m no genius, but even I know geography. She could be forgiven* for saying a thousand cities in the US, but even then that would mean at least 20 per state. Unless there are 57 states, then it would be under 18 per state.
Newsflash, Ms. Sawyer: the rest of the world couldn’t give a flying fuck at a rolling doughnut about these protesters. They only care about our country imploding from division, something which your ilk is only happy to foment along. I don’t know if it was the shiraz talking, but do us all a favor and kindly STFU.

*No, she wouldn’t be forgiven for saying an obvious lie like that. I was being kind.
After yesterday’s debacle of a conference, you would think that the Prez would stop digging. First he flip-flops, then he tells us we are too stupid to understand the debt crisis:
But a crisis is nothing without the Eternal Boogeyman:
President Obama on Tuesday said he cannot guarantee that retirees will receive their Social Security checks August 3 if Democrats and Republicans in Washington do not reach an agreement on reducing the deficit in the coming weeks.
And yet, nowhere in that article is any mention of the simple fact that Social Security and Medicare are actually protected from default!! There is no way that these checks wouldn’t be sent out. However, he does go on:
Mr. Obama told Pelley “this is not just a matter of Social Security checks. These are veterans checks, these are folks on disability and their checks. There are about 70 million checks that go out.”
Those check to the military and reitrees?? Oh yeah….those are fair game to this administration. And do you know why? Because the administration is trying to head off a PR maelstrom of epic proportions:
Short story, all of the important functions of government, i.e national security, the military, air traffic control, border security, Social Security payments, etc., will continue to function. The parts that have to shut down…well, lets just say they are candidates for permanent cuts.
But what happens when you force the military to work with no pay? You get low morale, you get desperate housewives and husbands, you get people screaming to their congressmen to give them their hard-earned money. And it is hard-earned. And those people screaming will get far more attention from congressmen than welfare dependents. And that is what this administration is counting on.
What this administration forgets is we know when we are being used as gambits. And we will remember.
Second link hat tip to LC Draco.
I’ve watched a couple of this guy’s videos and I really like the way he makes his points.
Well, I had a busy Saturday, and did not get to watch the Texas Longhorns vs. Oklahomo Sooners game. I was a bit upset, but after a few seconds I was fine. As I finally went to bed, I realized I had totally forgotten about the so-called One Nation Rally that was held on Saturday at the National Mall in response to Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor Rally held on August 28th. Thanks to Gateway Pundit, we have some Sunday funnies!!
This is a overhead view of Glenn Beck’s rally on 8/28:
Now here is the same overhead view of the liberal whinefest One Nation rally yesterday:
Not even the free rides, free lunches and intimidation coercion union camaderie were able to fill the Mall. But hey, don’t let that stop the mainstream mediots from reporting what an awesome crowd the liberals had:
Only in L.A. would a cop defending himself would be a cause for a riot:
Police Chief Charlie Beck pleaded for calm and vowed his department would conduct an exhaustive investigation into a bicycle officer’s fatal shooting of a drunken day laborer with a knife.
But his words did little to dissuade demonstrators, who spilled into the streets for a second straight night Tuesday -- some to pray and light candles and others to pelt a police station near downtown Los Angeles with eggs, rocks, and bottles.
Day laborer?? With a knife? Just how peaceful were his intentions?
Guatemalan immigrant Manuel Jamines, 37, was shot twice by a police officer Sunday afternoon near MacArthur Park, a poor neighborhood packed with recent immigrants from Central America.
In other words, a slum.
Beck said the incident involving Jamines started when someone flagged down three bicycle officers to tell them a man was threatening people with a knife.
So, the guy was threatening people with a weapon? Isn’t that against the law even in L.A.?
The officers approached the suspect and told him in Spanish and English to put down the weapon. Instead, Jamines raised the knife above his head and lunged at Officer Frank Hernandez, a 13-year veteran of the department.
Multiple civilian, police and even fire department personnel witnessed the exchange. Officer Hernandez had no choice but to defend himself against a lethal attack. Seems pretty open and shut to me.
[Jaminez] came to the United States six years ago to find work as a day laborer and spent most of his time looking for jobs in a Home Depot parking lot near his home.
Translation: ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT. Nice try, My Way News, but we the informed citizenry know code. His cousin claimed in the interview that Mr. Jaminez was “a friendly, hardworking man who liked to drink on the weekends but wasn’t violent.” So, what was he doing pulling a knife on people, then? Offering a free haircut?
At least one immigrant gets it:
“It’s bad, what the police did, but what’s worse is the silly stuff that people were doing here,” [Juana Neri] said, referring to Monday’s violence. “We are not in our country, and with the problems that Hispanic immigrants have these days, it’s better not to cause problems.”
But hey, as long as the illegals riot and make demands, the citizens of this country will awaken and start pushing back. So, keep on rioting, L.A. You do have a talent for it. Just one question: at what point will you realize that harboring illegals is becoming too expensive/ dangerous/ destructive to your environs?
Of course, y’all knew this was bound to happen sooner or later. Frankly, I thought it would have happened way sooner, but they aren’t the swiftest boats out there:
NAACP, Left-Leaning Media Groups Form Tea Party Tracking Site
That’s right, they are out to watch YOU!!! BOO!! The name of the tripe site is “teapartytracker [dot] org, and it will feature blog entries, interviews with people at rallies, and twittering, along with ” a picture of a T-shirt they say someone spotted at a rally that reads, ‘Blacks own slaves in Mauitania (sic), Sudan, Niger, and Haiti’” [italics mine]. Read it again: a pic of a shirt THEY SAY SOMEONE SPOTTED. Desperation?
The site, sponsored by the NAACP, Think Progress, New Left Media and Media Matters for America, will monitor “racism and other forms of extremism within the Tea Party movement. We call on the Tea Party to repudiate extremists among their ranks and join in civil dialogue with all Americans.”
Civil dialogue?? Is that what they call using the Race Card? Oh, and last I checked, the Tea Partiers are very good about swiftly repudiating those who come into rallies showing extreme views, especially those masquerading as Tea Partiers, just looking for dirt to post on youtube. Oh, and here’s their catchy motto: “A watched teapot never boils.” Pretty dated saying, isn’t it? Freakin’ morons apparently never learned real science. Just wait until this November. You’ll see a boiling teapot up close and damn personal.
I am not one to pay attention to polls. I find very few of them to be useful, and feel that most of them are out to sway public opinion in someone’s favor. Case in point: the fracas between Daily Kos founder Markos *spit* Moulitsas and Research 2000, a polling firm. And this poll is no different:
At first glance, this seems innocuous, until you peruse the rest of the polls and find that this is the only one they closed off to voting. The other polls are still open to vote. Then you have this:
Only 63 percent of those Americans surveyed think that our sitting president is serving in the office legally. Is it the success of the “right wing conspiracy” or failure of our academic instruction in civics and government that would lead 24 percent of respondents into believing Barack Obama was born in another country, and another 13 percent to be apparently unaware that the U.S. Constitution requires that the president of the United States be a “natural born citizen”?
How about option C: failure of our civics lessons such that 63 percent of the population is clueless to the meaning of “natural born citizen”, or option D: an attempt by the “left wing media” to redefine “natural born citizen” and push their agenda?
See? I can play the game, too.
Favoring the constitutional right to bear arms over others’ concerns about gun safety, Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday signed into law a bill making Arizona the third state allowing people to carry a concealed weapon without requiring a permit.
Heh. There is no media bias.
The measure takes effect 90 days after the current legislative session ends, which likely puts the effective date in July or August.
“I believe this legislation not only protects the Second Amendment rights of Arizona citizens, but restores those rights as well,” Brewer, a Republican, said in a statement.
Alaska and Vermont now do not require permits to carry concealed weapons.
The part of the story that really caught my eye was this:
Why the fuck would you use a picture of scary black rifles in a story about concealed weapons ?
Well, feeling a bit on the rundown side, but thought I would share some of the more interesting bits of news going around the interwebtubenets. Some funny, some stupid, some downright WTF invoking.
We start off in Canada, where we find Newfoundland’s Premier Danny Williams will be having heart surgery here in the United States later this week. Exact location, type of surgery, or method of payment is not known at this time. You can detect the floating question marks coming from Newfoundland all the way over in Texas.
We now go over to China. Deputy Ambassador to Israel Zhang Xiao’an claims that ties with China are deteriorating since Obama became president. The ambassador noted that usually relations between the Chinese gov’t and the new US president start off frosty, but gradually warm up. She claims in this case, it has worked backwards. The Great Uniter strikes again.
Over in Iran, Aquavelvajad (thanks, TheDudeAbides!), is claiming that Iran will will deliver a harsh blow to “global arrogance” (I don’t think he means the French), on February 11th, the anniversary of the 1979 Islamic Revolution. I can only assume he will have his jacket pressed for the occassion.
Meanwhile in Haiti, the voodoo high priest is raising a stink over being discriminated against, saying evangelical Christians are monopolizing aid coming into the country. Keep in mind this guy holds a degree in Biochemistry from the Universite de Paris, La Sorbonne. Yes, this is a WTF as far as I’m concerned.
In England, Climategate is opening a few eyes, and pouring salt in the open wounds of careers. Now the beleaguered Phil Jones is facing new claims that he sought to hide problems in key temperature data on which some of his work was based. This is not only an OMG, but also a WTF, not because of the claims (we all know about that). No…because this is a feature story on UK’s The Guardian. The freakin’ GUARDIAN, people!!! In the same section they have this: “How the ‘climategate’ scandal is bogus and based on climate sceptics’ lies”. This is the most blatant example of Cover-Your-Ass I have seen in a while.
Hope y’all are adjusting to having six more weeks of winter. I don’t think Punxsutawney Phil got the AGW memo.
