Define coup please

I know I'm probably not as sharp as President Obama and his Sec State Hilliary but it seems to me that if a President is told by the Supreme Court of his country that something he wants to do is illegal and unconstitutional and he tries to do it anyway then in response the Court and Congress have him removed from office, that ain't a coup. That is the other coequal branches of government responding to a blatant power grab by a Chavez loving, scumbag emulating piece of trash. You're know by the trash you keep company with Prez.

What's the cost of doing nothing?

Well here's the cost of doing something.

Thanks to Radley

Barak the Barbarian

So I walked into Books do Furnish a Room to get my weekly comics and on the front rack was Barak the Barbarian: Quest for the Treasure of Stimuli. Larry Hama of G.I. Joe fame wrote it and some pair I've never heard of drew it. The variant cover was a must buy for me. I don't know that I'll ever read it but hey "Red Sarah" is ...yeah.

TSA: Thought Police?

Get the fuck outta here! A comic book writer gets flagged for extra screening at an airport checkpoint and they find a script for an issue of Unthinkable. This comic is about a government think tank tasked with developing 9/11 scenarios which then began to come to past.
The TSA agents then proceeded to interrogate me, having a hard time understanding that a comic book could be about anything other than superheroes, let alone that anyone actually wrote scripts for comics.
I can see the TSA searching your bags for weapons, chemicals or other nasty stuff that might effect whether Flight what the fuck gets safely from point a to b, but reading peoples private papers? Please explain to me what this has to do with the security of the flight. Don't we have something called the fourth amendment? Has the TSA now taken on the role of Thought Police?

Making the streets safe...

From the Des Moines Register.

Store Clerk is robbed twice and gets a gun. Would be Armed Robber enters store and Clerk displays gun. Robber flees. No one hurt or killed.

Local Police Chief Judy Bradshaw commented...
...clerks can make a situation more dangerous by adding a second gun to the equation.
“Robbers don’t want to shoot,” Bradshaw said. “They want what they came for. From a public safety perspective there are so many more possible outcomes when clerks arm themselves.”
I wonder what her advice to a potential rape victim would be? I can guess.


American Clean Energy and Security Act my ass!

The American Clean Energy and Security Act or the Obama/Pelosi "fuck you all" bill passed 219-212 in the House. Eight Republicans voted for it. Forty-four Democrats voted against. North Carolina's delegation voted as follows:

• Butterfield, G.K., North Carolina, 1st -- Yes
• Coble, Howard, North Carolina, 6th -- No
• Etheridge, Bob, North Carolina, 2nd -- Yes
• Foxx, Virginia, North Carolina, 5th -- No
• Jones, Walter B., North Carolina, 3rd -- No
• Kissell, Larry, North Carolina, 8th -- No
• McHenry, Patrick T., North Carolina, 10th -- No
• McIntyre, Mike, North Carolina, 7th -- No
• Miller, Brad, North Carolina, 13th -- Yes
• Myrick, Sue, North Carolina, 9th -- No
• Price, David, North Carolina, 4th -- Yes
• Shuler, Heath, North Carolina, 11th -- Yes
• Watt, Mel, North Carolina, 12th -- Yes

I don't have a lot of discretionary cash and even less free time. The passage of the this bill will ensure I have even less. What little of each I have will be used to see that those fucktards who voted for it are looking for new jobs come election day. And frankly Mr. Shuler I don't care how pro gun you are if you can't see this legislation for the power grab it is you can't be trusted at any level.

The Senate hasn't passed their version yet so there is still hope. Call your Senators and let them know where you stand on this.

Jobs and government

See, when the government spends money, it creates jobs; whereas when the money is left in the hands of taxpayers, God only knows what they do with it. Bake it into pies, probably. Anything to avoid creating jobs. -- Dave Barry, Column, February 23, 1992

The Second Amendment for Dummies

Thursday, June 25, 2009


Go read Prescience by Tim Case. A sample...
What we didn’t understand, in those early years, is that the government is an entity which stays benign only so long as those who make up its character are so disposed. The very soul, mind, heart and action of any government are a direct expression of the morality, or lack of it, by those who make up the government and those who elect them.
And there is also this quote by Judge Alex Kozinski:
The Second Amendment is a doomsday provision, one designed for those exceptionally rare circumstances where all other rights have failed – where the government refuses to stand for reelection and silences those who protest; where courts have lost the courage to oppose, or can find no one to enforce their decrees. However improbable these contingencies may seem today, facing them unprepared is a mistake a free people get to make only once.
H/T to David

We'll not forget

I've seen references to this Obama fubar comment in a few places including Firehand, Bob Owens, and Ed Morrissey. The thought that these elected representatives were going to shove socialized medicine down our throats without them and theirs submitting to it was already rumbling around in my thoughts. This was simply confirmation.
Dr. Orrin Devinsky, a neurologist and researcher at the New York University Langone Medical Center, said that elites often propose health care solutions that limit options for the general public, secure in the knowledge that if they or their loves ones get sick, they will be able to afford the best care available, even if it's not provided by insurance.

Devinsky asked the president pointedly if he would be willing to promise that he wouldn't seek such extraordinary help for his wife or daughters if they became sick and the public plan he's proposing limited the tests or treatment they can get.

The president refused to make such a pledge, though he allowed that if "it's my family member, if it's my wife, if it's my children, if it's my grandmother, I always want them to get the very best care.
Mr. President, if this plan of yours isn't good enough for you and your family what makes you think it's good enough for me and mine?

Call your representatives and let them know for some decisions there is an electoral cost and we won't forget in 2010 or 2012. We'll not forget.

This is neat.

Obama Care

H/T to Radley.

Wednesday, June 24, 2009

Did CBS and the New York Times...

...stack their poll as to whether people support Obama's proposed changes in Health Care? Opinions differ, but considering what we've seen of late from big media I wouldn't be surprised at all if that were the case. It strikes me as another example of the media having their collective heads up the Administration's ass.

The Last Airbender [2010]

My son became a fan of Avatar: the Last Airbender and I got hooked as well. The series was successful and a live action version is in production. The teaser trailer can be found here. But don't wait on the movie. The series is available on DVD.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009)

I caught an afternoon showing and will say if you liked the first one you'll like this one. It has good action,lots of explosions, military hardware, neat guns, chases, and of course excellent special effects. It looks on the military with respect and government appointees and bureaucrats with contempt. I liked it. There's one scene where a bureaucrat tells an Army Captain that the White House trumps his general. Later the same bureaucrat tells the same Captain to stand down while they negotiate with the Decepticons and even consider turning Sam Witwicky over to them. The U. S. President is named in the movie as Obama. That's probably the normal use of formula characters and me drawing my own conclusions but hey.... Go see the movie, at about 2 hours and fifteen minutes it's a helluva ride.

More Lautenberg horse pucky

It looks like Frank Lautenberg has introduced the Senate's version of the "the we can take away you guns and keep you from ever buying another on suspicion of nothing if we damn well please and there ain't a thing you can do about it so nah!, act" introduced by Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y, back in May.

In these bills the Attorney General gets to decide who's on the terror watch list and if you get put on it you lose your right to keep and bear arms without trial and with no appeal or recourse. I think not. Write, call, email your Senators and let them know how you feel about this. I'd suggest that you also let them know what a dick Lautenberg is, but they work with him so I doubt it's a surprise.

There will be a reckoning.

Lawdog comments on the slaying of a young girl in Iran. He's much too polite in his comments. I hope the fucktards get what coming to them in this world. I understand some Mousavi supporters have begun hunting Basijis using Molotov Cocktails. Kinda like fishing with dynamite but hey, you use what you got and maybe that reckoning will come in this world rather than the next.

And it's about damn time...

From the Christian Science Monitor
It's been a disappointing year for American cities seeking to curb violence via tough gun laws.

Since last June, when the US Supreme Court struck down key parts of the District of Columbia's gun-control ordinance, cities have seen the 20,000 local gun regulations enacted over the years begin to slip from their grip, one by one.

Philadelphia's ban on assault weapons and limits on handgun purchases are the latest to succumb, struck down Thursday by a state court. An appeal to the state Supreme Court is expected. In April, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals struck down an ordinance in California's Alameda County that banned gun shows, saying the Second Amendment of the US Constitution applies in the states.
And I sit here trying for some witty comment and nothing comes. It may be that dark cloud I see in the distance. I keep expecting the antis to pull some back channel bullshit with their fellow travelers in the Congress to get their way.

Obama’s public healthcare plan is dead...

...or so said Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham on ABC News' "This Week".
New cost estimates released this week, which suggest that one proposed government-run health care option would cost $1.6 trillion and fail to cover two-thirds of the nation’s uninsured, was a “death blow,”
We should be so lucky, but somehow, Senator Graham, I don't think that's going to discourage him. It's not about cost or the quality of health care. It's about power and maintaining it no matter the cost.

Happy Father's Day...

A cartoon by...

...Michael Ramirez

Just spreading the word...

A letter posted at Glen Beck's website.

"I'm a home grown American citizen, 53, registered Democrat all my life. Before the last presidential election I registered as a Republican because I no longer felt the Democratic Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. Now I no longer feel the Republican Party represents my views or works to pursue issues important to me. The fact is I no longer feel any political party or representative in Washington represents my views or works to pursue the issues important to me. There must be someone. Please tell me who you are. Please stand up and tell me that you are there and that you're willing to fight for our Constitution as it was written. Please stand up now. You might ask yourself what my views and issues are that I would horribly feel so disenfranchised by both major political parties. What kind of nut job am I? Will you please tell me? Well, these are briefly my views and issues for which I seek representation:

One, illegal immigration. I want you to stop coddling illegal immigrants and secure our borders. Close the underground tunnels. Stop the violence and the trafficking in drugs and people. No amnesty, not again. Been there, done that, no resolution. P.S., I'm not a racist. This isn't to be confused with legal immigration.

Two, the TARP bill, I want it repealed and I want no further funding supplied to it. We told you no, but you did it anyway. I want the remaining unfunded 95% repealed. Freeze, repeal.

Three: Czars, I want the circumvention of our checks and balances stopped immediately. Fire the czars. No more czars. Government officials answer to the process, not to the president. Stop trampling on our Constitution and honor it.

Four, cap and trade. The debate on global warming is not over. There is more to say.

Five, universal health care. I will not be rushed into another expensive decision. Don't you dare try to pass this in the middle of the night and then go on break. Slow down!

Six, growing government control. I want states rights and sovereignty fully restored. I want less government in my life, not more. Shrink it down. Mind your own business. You have enough to take care of with your real obligations. Why don't you start there.

Seven, ACORN. I do not want ACORN and its affiliates in charge of our 2010 census. I want them investigated. I also do not want mandatory escrow fees contributed to them every time on every real estate deal that closes. Stop the funding to ACORN and its affiliates pending impartial audits and investigations. I do not trust them with taking the census over with our taxpayer money. I don't trust them with our taxpayer money. Face up to the allegations against them and get it resolved before taxpayers get any more involved with them. If it walks like a duck and talks like a duck, hello. Stop protecting your political buddies. You work for us, the people. Investigate.

Eight, redistribution of wealth. No, no, no. I work for my money. It is mine. I have always worked for people with more money than I have because they gave me jobs. That is the only redistribution of wealth that I will support. I never got a job from a poor person. Why do you want me to hate my employers? Why ‑‑ what do you have against shareholders making a profit?

Nine, charitable contributions. Although I never got a job from a poor person, I have helped many in need. Charity belongs in our local communities, where we know our needs best and can use our local talent and our local resources. Butt out, please. We want to do it ourselves.

Ten, corporate bailouts. Knock it off. Sink or swim like the rest of us. If there are hard times ahead, we'll be better off just getting into it and letting the strong survive. Quick and painful. Have you ever ripped off a Band‑Aid? We will pull together. Great things happen in America under great hardship. Give us the chance to innovate. We cannot disappoint you more than you have disappointed us.

Eleven, transparency and accountability. How about it? No, really, how about it? Let's have it. Let's say we give the buzzwords a rest and have some straight honest talk. Please try ‑‑ please stop manipulating and trying to appease me with clever wording. I am not the idiot you obviously take me for. Stop sneaking around and meeting in back rooms making deals with your friends. It will only be a prelude to your criminal investigation. Stop hiding things from me.

Twelve, unprecedented quick spending. Stop it now.

Take a breath. Listen to the people. Let's just slow down and get some input from some non-politicians on the subject. Stop making everything an emergency. Stop speed reading our bills into law. I am not an activist. I am not a community organizer. Nor am I a terrorist, a militant or a violent person. I am a parent and a grandparent. I work. I'm busy. I'm busy. I am busy, and I am tired. I thought we elected competent people to take care of the business of government so that we could work, raise our families, pay our bills, have a little recreation, complain about taxes, endure our hardships, pursue our personal goals, cut our lawn, wash our cars on the weekends and be responsible contributing members of society and teach our children to be the same all while living in the home of the free and land of the brave.

I entrusted you with upholding the Constitution. I believed in the checks and balances to keep from getting far off course. What happened? You are very far off course. Do you really think I find humor in the hiring of a speed reader to unintelligibly ramble all through a bill that you signed into law without knowing what it contained? I do not. It is a mockery of the responsibility I have entrusted to you. It is a slap in the face. I am not laughing at your arrogance. Why is it that I feel as if you would not trust me to make a single decision about my own life and how I would live it but you should expect that I should trust you with the debt that you have laid on all of us and our children. We did not want the TARP bill. We said no. We would repeal it if we could. I am sure that we still cannot. There is such urgency and recklessness in all of the recent spending.

From my perspective, it seems that all of you have gone insane. I also know that I am far from alone in these feelings. Do you honestly feel that your current pursuits have merit to patriotic Americans? We want it to stop. We want to put the brakes on everything that is being rushed by us and forced upon us. We want our voice back. You have forced us to put our lives on hold to straighten out the mess that you are making. We will have to give up our vacations, our time spent with our children, any relaxation time we may have had and money we cannot afford to spend on you to bring our concerns to Washington. Our president often knows all the right buzzword is unsustainable. Well, no kidding. How many tens of thousands of dollars did the focus group cost to come up with that word? We don't want your overpriced words. Stop treating us like we're morons.

We want all of you to stop focusing on your reelection and do the job we want done, not the job you want done or the job your party wants done. You work for us and at this rate I guarantee you not for long because we are coming. We will be heard and we will be represented. You think we're so busy with our lives that we will never come for you? We are the formerly silent majority, all of us who quietly work , pay taxes, obey the law, vote, save money, keep our noses to the grindstone and we are now looking up at you. You have awakened us, the patriotic spirit so strong and so powerful that it had been sleeping too long. You have pushed us too far. Our numbers are great. They may surprise you. For every one of us who will be there, there will be hundreds more that could not come. Unlike you, we have their trust. We will represent them honestly, rest assured. They will be at the polls on voting day to usher you out of office. We have canceled vacations. We will use our last few dollars saved. We will find the representation among us and a grassroots campaign will flourish. We didn't ask for this fight. But the gloves are coming off. We do not come in violence, but we are angry. You will represent us or you will be replaced with someone who will. There are candidates among us when he will rise like a Phoenix from the ashes that you have made of our constitution.

Democrat, Republican, independent, libertarian. Understand this. We don't care. Political parties are meaningless to us. Patriotic Americans are willing to do right by us and our Constitution and that is all that matters to us now. We are going to fire all of you who abuse power and seek more. It is not your power. It is ours and we want it back. We entrusted you with it and you abused it. You are dishonorable. You are dishonest. As Americans we are ashamed of you. You have brought shame to us. If you are not representing the wants and needs of your constituency loudly and consistently, in spite of the objections of your party, you will be fired. Did you hear? We no longer care about your political parties. You need to be loyal to us, not to them. Because we will get you fired and they will not save you. If you do or can represent me, my issues, my views, please stand up. Make your identity known. You need to make some noise about it. Speak up. I need to know who you are. If you do not speak up, you will be herded out with the rest of the sheep and we will replace the whole damn congress if need be one by one. We are coming. Are we coming for you? Who do you represent? What do you represent? Listen. Because we are coming. We the people are coming."

Bill Moyers asks...

..."why have we stopped talking about guns?" Stopped Bill? It's damned incessant on both sides of the issue and you damn well know it. What you mean is why isn't Obama and Congress pushing gun control instead of running from its very mention? We know the answer to that one Bill. They want to stay in office. Bill you don't want to talk about gun control. You want to dictate. You show contempt for any debate with your comment about Aaron Zelman of JPFO. You don't want debate. You just want gun owners to shut the fuck up so that you and those who know better can get on with business. It ain't gonna happen as long as one gun owner has breath. That is going to take some doing with our numbers increasing and yours...well, lets just say the odds are increasingly on my side.

The Sky Crawlers [2008]

The Sky Crawlers is a feature-length Japanese anime by Mamoru Oshii of Ghost in the Shell fame. It's a beautiful blend of CGI and traditional animation. The story is about a band of teens genetically engineered for virtual immortality. In a world at peace they fight wars in the sky as entertainment so people will value the peace they have. The teens are just cogs in the machine. Neat dogfights and aircraft. Excellent score. Philosophically? The director's going for deep thoughts. Since I'm just after entertainment, well.... It's worth a look just for the dogfights.

A new Bill Whittle video

The Dowd Conundrum: Why Vulcans and Other Intellectuals Don't Belong in the Big Chair

Another hatchet job

There's a gun poll over at Parade Magazine. Go vote and vote often. We're winning at about 93% at the time of this post. It not a scientific poll so it don't mean shit but it's fun to blow the bastards out of the water. The article that goes with the poll is about as balanced as a drunk walking home after a bender.
Gun-control advocates argue that weakening laws is disastrous. While it wouldn't necessarily lead to more mass shootings, they say, it would almost certainly increase the number of gun-related murders in the U.S. There are currently more than 11,500 each year, and America has one of the world's highest firearm homicide rates. Per capita, our rate is 39 times greater than that of England, 13 times Australia's, and
6 times Canada's.
It was the statistics that caught my eye. They seemed excessive. So I went looking for facts. I found an article at Wikipedia on international homicide rates. Yeah I know Wikipedia isn't the most reliable source but I checked its statistic for homicides per 100,000 in the US against the real deal at the Bureau of Justice Statistics and it matches. I'll give Wiki the benefit of a doubt in this instance. The Wiki article provides the most recent statistic for each country. Some of the data is several years old so how it matches up to what happening currently is unknown. The article claims our rate per capita is 39 times higher that England, 13 times higher than Australia, and 6 times higher than Canada. I found a per capita rate of 5.8 [2008] for the US, 2.07 for the UK, 1.37 for England and Wales, 1.45 for Australia, and 1.85 for Canada. That would make our intentional homicide rates in the US 2.8 times that of the UK, 4 times that of Australia, 4.2 times that of England/Wales, and 3.1 times that of Canada. Bit of a difference from 39, 13, and 6 isn't it. This might seem a small thing. I'm focusing on the statistics offered and pretty much ignoring the rest of the article. aside from the fact that the article clearly supports a anti-gun agenda, why should I pay one bit of attention to this "article" when the author, Rebecca Webber, can be bothered to check her stats for accuracy? Just another hatchet job courtesy of the Brady Bunch, VPC, or in this case I suspect the Johns Hopkins Center for Gun Policy and Research.

Hey don't forget to vote in the poll.

More on the knife ban

I added Knife Rights to my list of organisations on the left. The revocation of findings by Customs has the potential to ban any knife you can open with one hand. That would be any knife with a thumb nub for ease of opening. I carry a knife everywhere I carry a gun. It is not only a tool of self-defense but a tool. The ability to open and close it one-handed is indispensable when you're doing any kind of work with your hands. I also don't care to carry a fixed blade concealed because in North Carolina it is considered a concealed weapon whereas a folder is not. So call your representatives and see if we can get this stupidity aborted before it goes into effect.

Terminator Salvation is strong through the first three quarters. It doesn't quite fall apart in the last quarter but it does lose it way. It's still worth watching with lots of gun play and explosions. It's also got a computer generated Governator. Considering what a waste he's been as a politician it's somewhat enjoyable to see him get blow to hell on camera even if it is computer generated.

Proposed pocket knife ban?

Do ya get the feeling that these fucktards think we're living in Great Britain? So you can't get anywhere banning guns? Let's go for knives. This ban would include not only switchblades [already banned] but assisted opening knives and maybe even folders that you can flick open with your thumb. Jehoshaphat! Enough already. Call you Representatives or Senators maybe someone can stop this before it gets outta hand.

Liberty Dollars

A business has the gall to produce coinage in silver and gold to compete with the U. S. Government's paper fiat money and pot metal coinage. Of course they get arrested and the silver and gold seized. Me, I'd love to go into to a store to make a purchase and get silver coins as change. It's kinda like getting something for nothing. I'd also like to know if the FBI Agent who said this...
“Consumers were using their hard-earned money to buy goods and services, then getting fake change in return.”
...was able to keep a straight face when he did? The guys at Liberty Dollars had to know this was going to happen. One thing you can guarantee is that no government is going to allow direct competition against itself.

"U will loose"

It's like this. If you have a problem with college parties maybe you ought not to buy a house in a neighborhood right next door to the University. Likewise, if the sound of gunfire throughout the day bothers you, don't buy a house next door to a range. Especially if the range has been in business at that location for years and you knew it when you bought the house.

Then when the new neighbors can't get their way, they do shit like this. It's about what we've come to expect from the antis. Oh and maybe these "loosers" ought to learn to spell.

Quote of the Day

The bully succeeds by terrorizing one victim at a time, playing on the fear engendered in the other potential victims. When one kid stands against him and the entire schoolyard, by his example, recognizes the power of numbers, the bully is finished.

TN: Veto Override

The Tennessee state House overrode Gov. Bredesen's veto of the guns in restaurants bill yesterday. Their state Senate followed suit today. Uncle calls it...
a civil rights victory.
I have to agree. Now we need to get something similar passed in North Carolina.

David Carradine RIP

David Carradine hung himself: kinda, sorta, maybe. Kung Fu was a fond childhood memory and probably had a bit to do with my taking up the martial arts. He was in a other few things I liked, but well.... My condolences to his family.

This Day in History

1989 – Tiananmen Square protests are violently ended in Beijing by People's Liberation Army. Business as usual in the PRC.

The age of wuss is...

...upon us. Actually, it has been for a while. A prime example is this charlie-foxtrot today at Princeton. They shut the campus down for an hour because four "juveniles" came on campus and one had a dark green plastic "toy" gun. The police "investigated" the matter and the press actually reported the story. All involved should have been utterly embarrassed by their reactions. Wusssss.

Quote of the Day

"...it is kind of hard to tell them apart, and no, not just because both have dark skin and are narcissistic metro-sexuals . . . its because both are offering the same tyranny of animal pleasures, complete safety and dehumanizing loss of freewill that De Tocqueville predicted so long ago.”

From Why Are Conservatives So Mean? a video by Andrew Klavan. This you gotta see.

Helmke on Sotomayor

The fact that Paul Helmke of the Brady Campaign supports the nomination of Sotomayor to the Supreme Court strikes me as a damn good reason to oppose the nomination. Call or write your Senator.
