Good News:

The bloody civil war in Syria and Iran’s efforts to come in from the diplomatic cold will drive the agenda next week …(at) Davos.

Bad News:

…not be Davos with the presence of celebs …Hollywood heartthrob Matt Damon…Bono …and Goldie Hawn

You have to love the description of Goldie though, “erstwhile US comedy star Goldie Hawn”

That’s cold.

Good News: ISIS is losing in Syria

The Al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham has reached out to other rebel groups in Syria to head off infighting,

Bad News: That means Hezbollah is winning and that means winning in Lebanon.

Top Hezbollah MP Mohammad Raad on Sunday said that his party was unwilling to discuss the ministerial statement before the formation of a government,

In other words, “We’re going to be terrorists you sheep.

Bad News: China is spoiling for a war in the South China Sea, Korea and Taiwan.

“Those borders where our army has won victories are more peaceful and stable, but those where we were too timid have more disputes.”

Goodish News: The Philippines are pushing back.

Gazmin, (Philippines Sec Def V) visiting a military camp in the northern Philippines, said the Hainan law did not apply to Philippine territorial waters, some of which overlap with those of China which claims most of the South China Sea.

“We will not follow their rules in our own territory. Why do we need permission from another country that does not own our fishing grounds? These are ours,” he told reporters.

More Goodish News: The Philippines are noticing that China is actually preparing for war.

Stephen Den Beste always said that we aren’t afraid enough of the Japanese, I’ve always believed him, which leads to…

Weird News To Note: From the Japan Times

One can only wonder what sort of tale American “techno-thriller” writer Tom Clancy …might have spun from the scenario that’s now unfolding in the East China Sea.

Alas, Mr. Clancy passed away of an undisclosed illness on Oct. 1, …

Buh? You’re talking about fighting the most populous nation on the Earth and you’re wondering what the hell Tom Clancy would have to say about it?

Good News: We have a decent chance for a zombie apocalypse (or linking link bait)

America’s Number One Prescription Sleep Aid Could Trigger ‘Zombies,’ Murder and Other Disturbing Behavior

An aside, you’re characterizing zombies and murder as “disturbing behavior”? Heh.

Bad News: They’re already in charge in some places.

The San Francisco Inquisition is now itching to roast Maria Conchita Alonso alive.  The charge: blasphemy.  She not only dared to support a Tea Party candidate for governor, but also used the term “illegal” in reference to migrants from south of the border who sneak into the United States without a visa or any kind of permit.

She  was supposed to be in the Vagina Monologues. Isn’t that some sort of free speech thing? I don’t know, I don’t have one. I have rented them though so I suppose I should find out.

Another aside, listen to her in The Running Man and then listen to Selma Hayek and try to figure out who is who.

Good News: Scientists are starting to notice the Sun is not cooperating.

Bad News: These idiots can’t give up their religion. After a few paragraphs talking about the Maunder Minimum and other minimums causing outrageously cold condition we get this:

And while some have argued that ebbs and flows in the Sun’s activity are driving the climate – overriding the effect of greenhouse gas emissions, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change concludes that solar variation only makes a small contribution to the Earth’s climate.

A trace gas (less than .04% or under 4 parts in 10,000) is driving the climate more than that great glowing orb of nukular fire whose effects (noon in a desert), or lack thereof (northern cold areas), can kill you in a matter of hours from 93,000,000 miles.

How do you even talk to someone who so smugly believes that idiocy?

That’s the worst part of global warmmongering, you can’t do real science on our effects on the climate, you have to prove CO2 is gonna KILLS US ALL!!!!!!!.

If you find that say, the Great Brown Cloud of Asia has more effect on the environment than all the autos and flatulent cows in the world, well, you’re a denier and you can’t get your stuff published.

The Science Is Settled.  Heretic.

Good News: Arizona has rights to lots of water from the Colorado for irrigation.

Bad News: California needs that water.

Worse News: Klamath Falls had rights to water for irrigation too.

There’s a spring on the patch of land where my apt is and there isn’t another one anywhere close.
When it all falls apart, I still think I’ll head to the mountains. There are no terrain features here, just flat scrub while the Salt River flows through mountain valleys that have pretty much ready made strong points on or near water. At least I’ll have water for the trip. Hopefully I get there soon enough that the residents won’t be organized to keep riff-raff like me out.

Chaos and OUTRAGE!

Posted: December 2, 2013 by veeshir in China, Obama's Fault

Simon at Classical Values reads the Puff Hos so I don’t have to.

Apparently someone there wrote a post saying, “Eh, hacking happens all the time, quit yer whining”, which I think is the new Jourolist-Approved Talking Point about the easily hackable database with all of millions of American’s personal data,

So Simon has a question.

OK. Suppose the government loses your Social Security number to hackers. Will they do what credit card companies do and issue you a new one? How long will that take? Will they bother to inform you that your information has been hacked? Will they even know it has been hacked?

Yeah, I’m sure they’ll get right on that. Just dial “0″ if you have any questions.

Eric has it right.

No.

You will find out when the IRS suddenly targets you for taxes on income you never had, sends a bill for penalties and interest to an address you never lived at, and then levies against you for “ignoring” the notices you never got!

I seriously can’t tell if the chaos they’re causing here and around the world is on purpose or if they’re all just that fucking stupid.

I’m still trying to figure out which is scarier, they’re both pretty fucking scary.

I promised you an OUTRAGE!, so you get murderous commie dictators.

The murderous commie dictators in China claim they’re sending a rover to the moon.
Here it is, see if you notice something.

jadespit

That port? That’s for ejecting liquids.

As FrnakJ wrote in 2003:

They’re (commie Chinese V) planning to spit on the American flag we put on the moon!” Bush exclaimed.

Bastids! They’re finally able to carry through their 5-year plan to go to the Moon to put spit on the American flag!

Realistically? I think it will take a miracle for the thing to make it to the Moon and actually land and be useful, but maybe they’ll just crash it into our landing site as a back-up to the spitting thing.

Is it me or is it getting funnier out there?

We have Veeshir rooting for al Quaeda, they’re moving into the Gaza part of Terrorstan, and also for El Generalissimo Supremo in Egypt, because their military kills Islamic idiots and just allows secular dictators.

We have Obama fighting both sides of the budding war in the South China Sea.

Here he is sending B-52s to fly through where China said they have to ask permission.

Here, he is telling US airlines to do China’s bidding.

Here we have Iran promising the Middle East that their nukes are only meant for Jews.

Which is funny because Iran says there‘s no deal.

Here we have Russia arming Iran up to kill Americans and  former American allies. I figure Obama will bail on that deal, unless he comes in on the side of Iran.

Because, as Obama says,

“Tough talk and bluster may be the easy thing to do politically, but it’s not the right thing to do for our security,

Peace For Our Time!

Although, as FrnakJ wrote so aptly,

Who do bullies pick on in the playground? The giant, crazy looking guy who looks ready to snap and kill the person nearest or some harmless looking weenie who appears to do anything to avoid conflict?

We really need a POTUS who’s read and understood that most important essay.

CNN has a funny today.

First, they put out an Obama press release as “news”. It’s all stuff like this:

All these changes have made a noticeable difference in HealthCare.gov’s operating metrics, Zients said.

They write how great the website is and then note it’s an administration tool saying it but nowhere do they say if it is actually working. I’ve been flipping to CNN all day, they’ve been running that crap over and over. “The admin says it’s wonderful so now will those meanies stop rooting for failure!

But they also run this story showing that the website crashed when someone actually tried to use it. You’d think they’d put the two together. But there’s your problem; thinking. Don’t do it when watching CNN.

Now, I’ve written “rampaging John Lennons” on this page (no really, I did. You should try reading it) and I thought that was the most unlikely thing I could write. Of course, then I wrote about global worming making the world blow up so my ridicumeter had be recalibrated.

And now we’re there again. (Via Paco)

Two men save shark from choking on moose

Not sure if it was time well spent, but they made the papers so what do I know?

The only unfunny part of today? Watching Movable Object meet Resistible Force on Sunday Night Football.

Important Update!

So the Ukrainian leaders are trying to go back to being an SSR and Teh Peepul are a tad upset. They had their Orange Revolution and the leaders have spent the years since undoing it so now there’s some serious violence going on between the people and the dictator’s thugs. I’m rooting for them, it’s not easy to stay free.

I only wish we had a POTUS who actually sided with people trying to throw off dictators.

Update to the update

Okay, this morning has been like waking up after going out drinking with your ass aching and $2 on your nightstand.

First we have Obama going one better than Carter. Again.

Carter, recall, actually made the deal with the Norks that Clinton had to either accept or arrest Carter for diplomatting without a license.

Obama actually sent J Fucking Kerry, on purpose!?!?!?!?!, to make a deal instead of Clinton just letting some anti-American asshole go.

Obama’s deal with Iran is going to be a fucking nightmare.

Iran will keep doing what they’re doing, we get the unentertaining theater of UN nukular inspectors who are working for Iran while Iran gets sanctions eased. Something for nothing and your bitch for free.

China, sensing weakness, is upping their war-mongering (not nearly as funny as warmmongering) in the South China Sea, they’ve declared that they own the airspace over the whole area and Japan and the rest need to file flight plans with them when flying over international waters from Japan to the islands Japan owns.

Hagel is “deeply concerned”, that and an aircraft carrier group will get you some respect.

Too bad our nukular carriers are being “refueled”.

I hope Japan’s carrier fleet is ready.

carrier

Meanwhile, in the US, we have gangs of black youths roaming the streets sucker-punching not so random strangers (they’re not black seems to be the criteria) and posting the vids online.It’s not a hate-crime, cuz it’s black targeting non-blacks for their skin color and there’s no stealing going on, they just want to hit an “Other”.

Huh, when I put it that way it seems to be the definition of “hate-crime”, committing a crime just for hate. Now I’m against any “hate-crime” law ever, but if you’re going to have them don’t just use them to hassle whitey. That’s a hate-crime in itself.

Steyn, of course, relates it to the end of civlization.

Since it’s Steyn, he has some mots that are particularly bon.

he (CS Lewis V) writes of “men without chests” — the chest being “the indispensable liaison” between the head and the gut, between “cerebral man” and “visceral man.” In the chest beat what Lewis calls “the trained emotions.” Without them there is no honor or virtue, but only “intellect” and/or “appetite.”

Not Steyn’s, but that’s pretty perceptive. Except for a subset, and that subset is not in political, social or moral power, we are fully at the “men without chests” stage.

One thing I think he missed

To paraphrase my compatriot George Jonas, punching a spinster’s lights out isn’t wrong because it’s illegal, it’s illegal because it’s wrong. But, in a world without restraints, what’s to stop you? If a certain percentage of your population feels no moral revulsion at randomly pulverizing fellow citizens for sport, a million laws will avail you naught: The societal safety lock is off.

You see, we have laws for so much stupid shit that people break the laws all the time. Once you break one law, it’s easier to break the next one. Sure it starts with something like “wearing a hoodie in a no-hoodie zone” law or smuggling lower tax cigs (fucking stupid laws) and the next you’re sucker punching whitey for youtube fame.

This one is so fucking chillingly hilarious that I can only liken it to Pennywise the Clown killing and eating a mime.

In his novel That Hideous Strength, C. S. Lewis gives his fictional bureaucracy the acronym NICE — the National Institute for Coordinated Experiments. A few years ago, the British government dusted it off for real — the National Institute for Clinical Excellence. It performs cost-benefit analyses of medical treatment and patient care — i.e., NICE is a euphemism for “death panel.”

I’d say, “Heh”, but it’s more like “aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh….heh”

RTWT, it’s depressing but interesting.

I had a point but I’m only on my first cup of coffee so I lost it. Sorry. I guess I owe you some hottassery. (more…)

A drudgetaposition

DHS buying $9 million worth of guns from H&K and Sig

DHS hiring!

Now, I defended CPAC for not inviting people like Christie, but I am pretty upset about GOProud.

As Eric asks, Is Breitbart’s ghost uninvited?

Quoth Breitbart

“If being conservative means rejecting gay conservatives because they are gay, then fine, I’m not a conservative.”

It’s their party, but people afraid of gay cooties really need to get a grip. Everybody knows girls are where cooties come from.

Now, I hate trusting a Minitrue outlet, but I don’t think they’d actually alter a transcript, you never know but this feels right.

Boehner from ABC’s This (is) Weak

MARTHA RADDATZ: So, do you trust President Obama?

SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER: Absolutely….. There’s no issue there. We have a very, very– good relationship.

Fuck.

But it gets better.

SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER: We do not have an immediate debt crisis.

Double fuck.

SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER: Well, I think– most people would think that I’m part of the common-sense caucus.

By “most people”, I assume he’s talking about his staff and GOP tools who hate wacko birds.

I could quote this fucking thing all day, but I’ll end on a hilarious note

SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER:…The Senate is likely to finish their budget– after– the Easter recess.

Listen, there aren’t enough “ha”s in the world for that “bwa” so I don’t want to use them up on something so fucking stupid.  They’re already doing more continuing spending $trillions resolutions.  Those are much better than budgets, they don’t have deficit spending or earmarks. At least, everybody can pretend they don’t and really, that’s all that matters.

In Fuck You Minitrue News, a puppy blender link quoting The Hill. (I don’t link Minitrue if I can avoid it)

“A growing number of states are moving forward with legislation to exempt them from new federal gun controls and, in some cases, brand as criminals anyone who tries to enforce them. While many of the bills are considered symbolic or appear doomed to fail, the legislative explosion reflects a backlash against legislative and regulatory efforts in Washington to tamp down on gun violence.

Fuck you, it’s not about reducing gun violence, it’s about control, it’s about making citizens into subjects and you assholes know it, you just keep pushing your fucking view at every chance.

So what does it say when I see the ‘Justice” Dept. is investigating the Wall Street Journal and my first thought is, “How did they piss off Obama?”

said it had received information from a person it described as a whistleblower who claimed one or more Journal employees had provided gifts to Chinese government officials in exchange for information, according to people familiar with the case.

First, so fucking what? If they want to pay for information, why is that Obama’s….. oh yeah, Chinese bribes.

Nevermind.

Another Weasel Zippers link that would be fucking hilarious if it weren’t as we they were fucking with us over the SEQUESTER THAT’S GONNA KILL US ALL!!!!!.

The federal government is spending $227,437 to investigate how animals have been depicted in National Geographic magazine over a span of 120 years, which federal officials say is an “innovative study” that will examine “images of animals to see how people have changed their view of the natural world.”

… “Predators like wolves and coyotes have been consistently portrayed as a threat.

Gee, too bad they don’t make people think coyotes are all fluffy and friendly and stuff. I mean, who wouldn’t want their kids wanting to pet a vicious carnivore that’s one of the more opportunistic killers and lives in and near people areas? Sure jerks like my neighbor who lost his dog and chickens to the coyotes might be unhelpful about that, but that’s cuz he’s not as smart as bureaucrats in DC.

Okay, three more chucklers to end the day.

First, “Crazed Man Dressed As Vagina Shuts Down Pro-Life Speech” I will say, the story delivers on the headline. His mom isn’t very good at sewing.

Second, a little global warmmongering hilarity.

The estimates – given with 75 per cent and 95 per cent certainty – suggest only a five per cent chance of the real temperature falling outside both bands.

But when the latest official global temperature figures from the Met Office are placed over the predictions, they show how wrong the estimates have been, to the point of falling out of the ‘95 per cent’ band completely…

Do tell.

The funniest part, for me, is people scratching their heads and thinking that maybe other people who say the same phenomenon causes heat, cold, drought, floods, oyster herpes and the Earth exploding might just be making shit up.

And last, a quiz. I guaran-damn-tee nobody, and I mean nobody, gets the answer.

Who wrote this bit of poetry? (Link below so you can’t cheat, I took this from the middle because there are some words that might give a clue)

I am a supplicant for a goblet of wine
from the hand of a sweetheart.”

“O Friend, I have become captivated
by the mole over your lip.
I have seen your languid eyes
and I have become sick.”

“Place a strand of your wavy hair in my way.

In white ink, so you’ll have to highlight it.

Sayyid Ruhollah Mostafavi Musavi Khomeini

That’s right, the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomenei,

As the author says

Apparently the same guy who issued a deadly fatwa against Salman Rushdie and his ‘Satanic verses’; the same guy who has written a mini guide for good Muslim pedophiles on how to have sexual pleasure from a baby among other atrocities;  has also written poetry on wine, love, taverns, drunkenness and languid eyes

Did you get it? Of course not.

Must have been his Paris days.

Sorta important, above the post update.

Eh, it didn’t matter much to me, I was just curious and I saw something today that gave me a clue on how to find out.

Aaccording to this Catholic News Agency article,

Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi has confirmed that the Pope intended to take his name from the 13th century aristocrat who left his wealthy family to serve the poor and rebuild the Church.

So, St. Francis of Assisi.

Now, back to the post!

My subscription to spell check ran out so you gets what I gives.

I’m all depressed today, Nicole wrote what I was worried about, I’m becoming an OUTRAGE!!!! monger. Apcray.

Denial is just not strong enough for today and I can’t stay drunk all day. Maybe I should turn to LSD. Eh, I’ll try to see the funny.

This one actually does make me laugh,  It’s a drudge link and he’s talking about Obama slapping around a Dem congresscritter. What makes me laugh is this

Obama was referring to his $1 billion proposal for 15 manufacturing “innovation centers,”

He actually expects people to take that shit seriously.

The article goes on to note this

the details of which are still somewhat hazy.

“Hazy”, yeah, we’ll go with that. It sounds so much better than, “Ridiculous crap that doesn’t mean anything.”

We all saw Cruz make Feinstein look like a fool yesterday. You know it was bad because Andrea Mitchell declared DiFi the winner, but we also see this as another proof they know she looked like the moron she is (Dumber than a box of Boxers!)

Feinstein told Wolf Blitzer she “felt patronized” by the “arrogant” junior senator and had to take some time to cool off afterward.

Awwww, did the mean old man make ems look stupid?

How arrogant and clueless do you have to be to piss off the men who are dedicated to give up their lives for yours?

A former agent blasted President Obama for blaming the Secret Service for the decision to shut down White House tours,

That’s right, Obama arrogant and clueless.

What lefties do understand is indoctrination, they’re only fer it when they’re indoctrinating kids to believe the right things.

I just intro’d bill to prevent kids under 12 from going to gun shows.

Yup, can’t let 12 year olds learn how cool guns are or they might want one.

Also via Say Uncle, … Cold Fury (the exact link is below about sedition) we see this bit of common sense about gun laws.

You cannot “protect” a right while calling for limitations on it.

Preach it brother!

How do you say, “How many divisions does he have?” in Mandarin? (unsafe, NY Times Link)

China congratulated Pope Francis on Thursday on his ascension to the papacy, but also warned the Vatican not to interfere in what China deems to be its internal affairs.

I know who I’m rooting for.

Hmmm, now I have to wonder how to say it in English.

This past Sunday, a Chicago area church sponsored a Second Amendment Sunday filled with “assault” pop-tarts, “combat” cupcakes and a sheet-cake that featured a chocolate semi-automatic Glock handgun with a quote from Jesus that read “Blessed are the peacemakers.”

That last is a very nice touch except they really needed it to be a Colt, not a Glock.

pop-gun

Okay, headlines that just seem fucking ridiculous.

US Can’t Make Dominos Founder Offer Contraceptives To Employees

Seriously, imagine going back to the 50s and showing that article to people. They’d lock you up for your own good.

A question, could you let him off if he promises to take acting lessons?

Headine

Hah!… Iranian Regime TV: Ben Affleck Could Be Hanged For War Crimes

I ask because I could see that question coming up.

Hmmm, this is interesting.

Egyptian media outlets are reporting that a number of Hamas members were involved in the August 2012 attack on an Egyptian military base that killed 16 Egyptian soldiers. The three Hamas members linked to the attack are Ayman Nofal, Mohamed Ibrahim Salah Abu Shamala, and Raed al Attar.

On the one hand, I doubt the Muslim Brotherhood likes Hamas killing people in Egypt without their permission, on the other hand, they were killing the main obstacles to the MB’s takeover of Egypt. Interesting to see how it plays out.

Now sure about this one either.

“The Lebanese cabinet is required to hold an extraordinary meeting to ask the army to deploy along the border,”

Whose side would they be on? So far in Syria we’ve seen homegrown terrorists, al Quaeda, Hezbollah and Syrian military in a dog’s breakfast of a nightmare scenario, I guess whose side they’ll be on depends on how many Hezbollah units are included.

Steyn on Islamophobes getting their blood all over the place.

The attempted murder of an “Islamophobe” is part of the scene in today’s Europe. Among those targeted have been such obvious “right-wing extremists” as secular feminist Ayaan Hirsi Ali, gay hedonist Pim Fortuyn, and coke-snorting anti-monarchist Theo van Gogh. While I was in Copenhagen paying a visit to Lars’s Danish Free Press Society, a young Chechen jihadist opposed to all this outrageous Islamophobia prematurely detonated while assembling his bomb in his hotel room, and we all had a good laugh. But sometimes, as on Lars’s doorstep, the jihad wannabe is less incompetent and gets a little closer.

It being EUnuchstan, they need to provide ‘balance’.

The author Hedegaard is one of the few Danes who is a certified racist, as he some years ago was fined by a High Court for having stated in a blog interview that Muslim fathers rape their children. He was later acquitted by the Supreme Court.

Hmmm, where does one get one of those certificates? And since he was acquitted, isn’t he a “formerly certified racist” as he’d have lost his certified status?

I’m surprised we haven’t seen this bit of sorta good news at Hot Air, Ace, Drudge, Gateway pundit or any of the other news aggregators.

… jumped out a window from the family’s co-op apartment Wednesday afternoon with 10-month-old son Keston in her arms. She died instantly.

The baby survived by bouncing off his motionless mom’s chest upon impact.

I’m always in favor of them failing at the “murder” part of a “murder/suicide” deal.

Now I’m not saying they’re related, but Girls Gone Wild was hounded into bankruptcy and what happens the very next spring break?

Two masked men armed opened fire in a bar on the outskirts of the Mexican tourist resort of Cancun on Thursday, killing six people and wounding five,

While I abhor the violence, as a titty-man, I understand it.

Apparently illegal immigration causes global worming.

It’s one reason I feel it’s urgent that we get real immigration reform, allowing millions to step out of the shadows and on to a broad path toward citizenship. It will help, not hurt, our environmental efforts, and potentially in deep and powerful ways.

The biggest lack in today’s world are people who stand back and say, “You know, that’s pretty fucking ridiculous, maybe you should not say that.”, that’s why it’s often so funny out.

I’ve been wondering something lately, who will be the first con-blogger to be arrested for sedition.  Mike at Cold Fury has a list of some of the people I think are in the running.

I’m figuring it’s between the Emperor and Bob Owens.

I just realized that SMOD should be plan B, FrnakJ notes what we all used to know was Plan A.

So, what do you think should be the future of conservatism? I’m thinking conquering other planets. Going to other planets looks like the only realistic way to escape big government now.

Yup, Heinlein, in Time Enough For Love, I think, said that space travel hurt the Earth as freedom lovers escaped the increasing loss of freedom on Earth.

Just as immigration to America hurt EUnuchstan as all the freedom lovers left for America for generations.

In other words, I’ve been rooting for stuff traveling in the wrong direction! That’s pretty funny.

There will be a test.

Important, Above The Post Update!

BradXTC went and did something for which he can not be forgiven, he looked into an OUTRAGE!!!! without being OUTRAGED!!!!! and it looks as if the “Bronze Star for the PPT” story is not as OUTRAGEOUS!!!!!!! as I thought.

So thanks to MkeD nobody gets extra-credit. He blew the curve too. You can all thank him.

Oh, and MikeD? Listen, when I get OUTRAGED!!!!! I really don’t like to hear facts. Jeez, that’s what I get for reading comments and clicking links.

Now back to the post!

1. Matt Yglesias (pronounciation, mawr-on) loves him some Death To Israel!

The key to the interpretation is found in the crucial four words that are often tacked on to the phrase “Israel’s right to exist” — namely, “… as a Jewish state.” As I understand it, the principle that Israel has a right to exist as a Jewish state has three parts: first, that Jews, as a collective, constitute a people in the sense that they possess a right to self-determination; second, that a people’s right to self-determination entails the right to erect a state of their own, a state that is their particular people’s state; and finally, that for the Jewish people the geographical area of the former Mandatory Palestine, their ancestral homeland, is the proper place for them to exercise this right to self-determination….

In fact, I think there is a basis to challenge all three, but for present purposes I will focus on the question of whether a people’s right to self-determination entails their right to a state of their own, and set aside whether Jews count as a people and whether Jews have a claim on that particular land.

2. GOP and Rush Limbaugh.

I realize there are those within the Republican Party who do not like Rush Limbaugh. Some of them even think the GOP is worse because of him.

Likewise, there are those within the GOP who say they like Rush and see “a use” for him, but they themselves do not like listening to him. He’s just not their cup of tea or something.

These people should really spend a week listening to Rush three hours a day and perhaps they would not be so stupid.

“I tell you what, this is one of the best experiences I’ve had. Everybody’s serious, everybody’s knowledgeable, they’ve been around the issue,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham-R-S.C., who’s up for re-election next year and facing a potential GOP primary challenge from the right. He said it’s “sort of what I came up here to do — sit down with serious people to solve serious and hard problems.”

Mr. Obama?  Where’s the disdain now?  Cancelling, or at minimum, drastically scaling back — by 90% or even 99%, the DHS order for ammo, and its receipt and deployment of armored personnel carriers, would be a “fourfer.”

  • The federal government would set an example of restraint in the matter of weaponry.

  • It would reduce the deficit without squeezing essential services.

  • It would do both in a way that was palatable to liberals and conservatives, slightly depolarizing America.

  • It would somewhat defuse, by the government making itself less armed-to-the-teeth, the anxiety of those who mistrust the benevolence of the federales.

8. Compassionate Racists in NYC.

So just to add up the comments by Times contributors over the past couple of years: if you live in the big blank space between Manhattan and L.A. in the New Yorker cartoon, you’re a participant in “the dance of the low-sloping foreheads.”  If you actually live in the Times’ backyard, you’re a potential Progressive racist. (Woodrow Wilson, call your office.) When the Weekly Standard noted recently that in the eyes of the MSM, the customer is always wrong, they had no idea how much he was truly loathed by those hoping that he’ll part with a note featuring Abraham Lincoln’s face and some change for a copy of the Sunday edition.

Edition.

These days it just sucks knowing what’s coming.

So the French are finding huge, militarized al Quaeda camps in Mali, complete with heavy weapons and various terroristical suicide belt stuff and whatnot, but that’s not why I’m linking it. This is.

We are 70 percent there … but we must do 100 percent,” Le Drian said yesterday. “The mission given to our forces by the President of the Republic is to succeed in liberating all Malian territory … so there will be more combat.”

Holy Chit Meng! That’s the French talking about winning a war! Although…. French “help” doesn’t come cheap. Maybe they want their colony back. They do that sort of thing in Africa.

Interesting article on China trying to be Da Man in the Pacific rim. Well, not so much ‘interesting’ as pretty funny.

Take this

Why has the Chinese government, especially the People’s Liberation Army, appeared more aggressive, self-confident and assertive in dealing with the US and its allies?…

This “unrelenting strategy” first calls for China to confuse its opponent’s judgments; second, create and induce internal conflicts within its opponent; and third, deepen the opponent’s existing internal conflicts before launching an offensive attack.

They seem to think it’s all Sun Tzu strategery. That’s like saying the Road Runner uses Clausewitz to defeat Wile E. Coyote.  You see, it’s Obama’s relentless strategery to confuse America’s judgments (by siding with the dictator against the democracy), to create and induce internal conflicts (by balkanizing America), and deepen the existing internal conflicts (gun control, attack the rich, kill whitey, etc.) which emboldens China.

This bit is what makes it funny.

as the Chinese Communist Party seeks to reduce Washington’s influence in Asia.

Ummmm, dude? That’s Obama’s goal too.

Which leads us to the Norks cutting off communication with South Korea. But I can’t tell if it’s the normal, “Give us food!!!” temper tantrum or something China told them to do.

Pyongyang has also threatened to cut off a hotline with UN forces (read, US. V) in South Korea, at the border “truce village” of Pammunjom.

Cutting off talking with us could lead to war, which the Norks and their Chinese masters don’t seem to really want. Yet.

This one is pretty cool. Japan and the Philippines are acting like allies. And not The Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere sort of allies, but actual allies against the war-threatening, murderous commies in China.

As Japan’s war of words with China continues to escalate, it’s beginning to move closer to another former rival—the Philippines. Last month, Tokyo announced plans to donate 10 brand-new patrol boats to the Philippine Coast Guard. Later in the month, the two countries met to discuss further expanding their maritime cooperation in the contested waters of the South China Sea.

Cool. They’re realizing they can’t count on us for at least another 4 years.

Speaking of intimidation by commie dictators, let’s go to America!

First up, we see politicians going after sheriffs who refuse to lie for them, this time in CO.

According to El Paso County Sheriff Terry Maketa, the vast majority of the 30 Sheriffs who made the trip to the Capitol, last week, came to testify in support of the second Amendment. Unfortunately, the rules were changed so that only one Sheriff could testify on a bill. Maketa claimed that CO Democrats were pressuring pro-gun sheriffs in the state with tactics that border on extortion. In an email he received, last week, he said the Democrat Senate majority leadership had threatened to stop or stall pay raises to the state’s elected sheriffs if they refused to support Colorado’s pending gun control legislation.

Nice.

The only problem is that it’s making NJ jealous, so they have to go one better.

Said Hart “I tried to express my opinion and tell them that my Constitutional rights had been violated. I began quoting the Constitution, line by line…

Yeah, so how’d that work out for you? (as if we all didn’t already know)

When the Harts left the gathering, they were followed into the parking lot of the community center, and the same young man who had been so upset by Ms. Hart’s comments in the community center, started screaming and shouting at her, took down the license plate number of her vehicle and said – “See if you are able to pay your property taxes NOW!”

So obviously some pro-dictator types didn’t like it. No big deal. Just some loon yelling, right? Geez, you really need to pay more attention.

When they arrived, there were 5 police cars from the Franklinville Police Department. They advised her that the Clayton Police wanted to talk to her about the allegations….

Her purse was taken from her and she was put into a “paddy wagon,” transported to the police station-…

She was arrested and booked for “terroristic threats” and “contempt.”

At the police station, she was handcuffed to a chair.

It’s a terrorist threat to discuss the Constitution with dictators. Duh.

IMO, a whole bunch of people need to go to jail over this and none of them are the lady who dared to open her mouth.

A little more endy before we get to the funny.

Samizdata’s quote of the day (Quote of the week at least IMO, but it’s their blog and they decide that kind of stuff V).

For the first time in recorded history, we have nearly every central bank printing money and trying to debase their currency. This has never happened before. How it’s going to work out, I don’t know. It just depends on which one goes down the most and first, and they take turns. When one says a currency is going down, the question is against what? Because they are all trying to debase themselves. It’s a peculiar time in world history.

“Peculiar” is one way of putting it. Funny and endy is how I put it.

For the record, I hate Starbucks’ products, I like skim milk in my cappuccino, I don’t like their burnt coffee and I really don’t like the way I have to use their terminology in order to order a fucking coffee, but I love their stand on the 2nd Amendment and this is beautiful.

Monday is the last day New Yorkers will be able to buysuper-sized sugary drinks in New York City.

The cola crackdown goes into effect on Tuesday. …

Starbucks announced it plans it will continue offering 20 ounce venti-sized drinks because of the milk content. Like Dunkin’ Donuts, customers will also be able to add their own sugar.

Geez, now I have to go get some espresso and maybe a pastry. So how did their Nannarch take it? Heh, we all know.

Speaking Sunday on CBS News’ “Face The Nation,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg called Starbucks’ plan “ridiculous.”

“Starbucks knows how to market things, knows how to package things,” he said. “They can change instantly when it’s in their interest to do so.”

How dare they pretend they live in America! Their Nannarchs know what’s in their interest. It’s not their decision, it’s Bloomberg’s!

Heh. Heh I say. (I forget where I saw this, one of the news aggregators I think). It’s about the Space and Science Research Corporation who, like the Farmer’s Almanac, have the temerity to pay attention to the Sun when discussing the Earth’s climate. I know, anti-science.

The SSRC and its President, Mr. John L. Casey, have an established record of accuracy in climate change predictions using the Relational Cycle Theory or RC Theory of climate change, a theory based on solar cycles as the main drivers behind the Earth’s variations in climate.”

Jeez, so you try to model reality? How is that gonna prove WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!!!!?

In the Executive Summary, the SSRC report authors show convincing evidence that the Earth’s atmospheric and oceanic temperatures are on a long term temperature cool down as a result of the just started reduction in the Sun’s energy output. Called a “solar hibernation,” this rare and powerful natural cycle of the Sun has been shown to bring long and potentially dangerous cold climate eras to the planet.”

Oh.

That highlights the biggest problem with Global Warmmongering, you’re attacked if you do real science and that article will be ignored by all the right people, it might interfere with the lucrative Global Warmmongering industry.

This Ain’t Hell has one niche that’s important, they’re big on Stolen Valor. Which is when PX Rangers and other liars claim to be a 182nd Airborne Green Beret Ranger with the Victoria Cross and then try to make money off those lies. So TAH gets attacked for highlighting these lying pieces of shit. Their response?

I don’t care that Dick Stoops didn’t get into the Missouri National Guard Hall of Fame, based on his lies, either. I don’t care that Ike Densmore killed himself because of his lies. I don’t care that Todd Hamilton‘s charity fell to pieces.

What I do care about is that people understand that there are now consequences for their bad behavior. Apparently most people weren’t taught that by their parents, I guess that part of their childhood development is left to TAH.

Good for them. Too often in our society no good deed goes unpunished, it’s nice to see assholes find consequences meeting actions.

They’re not against some labels.

A few days ago I received a personal email solicitation from a senior person at the organization No Labels asking, “Would you be open for 15 minutes to hear progress on No Labels?” The group advocates bypassing ideological gridlock, working together across the aisle, and all of us rolling up our sleeves and solving problems in Congress, government, and society at large.

They’re  just trying to say they’re In The Middle and not partisan. Unlike those meanies on the Right in the Hitler party!

Someone doing the journalism our social, moral and intellectual betters in Minitrue refuse to do.

    Schakowsky: We’re on a roll now, and I think we’ve got to take the–you know, we’re gonna push as hard as we can and as far as we can.

Mattera: So the assault weapons ban is just the beginning?

Schakowsky: Oh absolutely. I mean, I’m against handguns. We have, in Illinois, the Council Against Handgun… something [Violence]. Yeah, I’m a member of that. So, absolutely.

Goals, they has them. (and those goals include gaols and chains).

You know for a crew who claim to be cool, they surely do a lot of things that require they be ridiculed.  The latest is #askflotus.

Hi #AskFLOTUS Was Barack with you on 9/11/12 during #Benghazi…Asking for about 300 million or so people. Thanks.

Bwahahahhaa.

Let’s end on the Question Of The Day!

What do you think about President Obama’s decision to pardon the sequester and send it to Portugal?”

The answers are funnier than the question.

Above the Post Update Cuz I Mean To Put This In The Post.

Chavez is Dead! The only bad thing is that he died in between Dead Pools, (I’d click that link just for the pic, it’s awesome) so nobody gets the dick. Oh well.

Recall a few weeks ago they were talking about what happens after Chavez, so here are the players for their Civil War.

I’m not sure who to root for, the secret policeman or the army guy. Eh, either way it’ll be interesting.

Now, back the post!

 

A buddy of mine in DC says Snowquestration is the gubmint werker name for the coming snow storm.

I bet snowquestration is just like the sequestration, a bunch of gov’t workers will be told to stay home and they’ll be paid for it.

I was always torn on snow days when I worked for the gov’t. On the one hand, they were wasting $millions. On the other hand, Snow Day!

WTF happened to Jeopardy!? I tried to watch it last night for the first time in a long time, years probably. They had a category about celebrities’ favorite tv shows.
The “celebrities” were a bunch of “journalists” and Lewis Black (Kids, ask your grandparents who he is). Repeat after me, blow-dried, teleprompter readers are not celebrities.

So okay, I could take that. I understand today’s teleprompter readers think they’re celebrities, but I still didn’t like it.

Then they had a category on “exiles”,  I forget the first one, the next was Dante. Then, this answer, “He was forced to leave the US…” and the question was “Who was Roman Polanski”.

No fucking mention of his drugging a 14 year old and rape-raping her, just “he had to leave”.

And that’s why we’re so fucked. Every facet of every entertainment outlet pushes leftist ideas as normal.

So low info types think MSNBC isn’t full of shit-flinging monkeys, Foxnews is right-wing hate and Obama isn’t a stuttering clusterfuck of a miserable failure while the tens of thousands of people in the righty-blogosphere are just reduced to watching it happen.

So that’s why it’s more important than ever to laugh.

This morning I said the Wash Post wouldn’t correct their ‘reportage’ on how the Daily Caller were lying liars who lie.

The once-legendary Washington Post has been caught once again correcting a high-profile article without noting the correction

Boy do I have egg on my face.

We saw earlier that the Norks are all upset and they’re GONNA KILL US ALL!!!!!, apparently they’re upset about China and the US agreeing on sanctions.

Okay, so what is China doing? They’ve basically agreed to sanctions on one of their provinces (the crazy one they use to fuck with the rest of the world), so what game are they playing?

Trying to figure out stuff like that is what makes any end of civilization interesting, watching people pretend China is not happy about the Norks is a good example of why this one is so funny.

Okay, now I feel kind of stupid, apparently the “Cannibal” of the NY Post didn’t actually eat anybody, he just read websites about it and talked about it. I’m not defending any of that, but he didn’t actually do anything but talk shit on the intertubes.

All I can say is that any of you people playing World of Warcraft had better be careful about who you kill.

I love it when Minitrue outlets talk about how Obama is losing!!!

I like this part.

On taxes, McConnell (R-Ky.) just flat-out beat Joe Biden. He preserved 98 percent of the Bush tax cuts in perpetuity, which from a policy perspective is huge. He also made sure that the payroll tax holiday came to a conclusion, thereby making sure that every American would feel the tax increase that President Obama has long been fighting for.

So they kept taxes low and raised taxes and that’s a win?More

On spending, the Republicans haven’t gotten everything they wanted. But they did get the rebranding opportunity that they so desperately needed

No, they didn’t get anything they wanted and the rebranding is bullshit. They’re still going to blamed for……

Oh, I get it. This is a “See? It’s the GOP’s fault!!!” article.

Sorry, I didn’t see what you were doing there O’Brien.

Wyatt catches some fucking hilariously infuriating bullshit. The First Worf is talking about kids living in gun-free zones (actual results may vary) and she acknowledges that some people don’t have Secret Service guarding their kids so it’s unsafe to go outside so: A Wii for every organized-community resident!

I would encourage parents that if they also find themselves in a situation where they can’t get outside, then let’s figure out what we can do indoors because it doesn’t take the great outdoors to be moving every day.”

Fuck you. That’s the only response to that. They take guns and then tell you to hide under your bed. Fuck you. I can’t say that strongly enough.

In Hey!, Our Phoney Baloney Jobs Are In Trouble news,

In this photo taken Feb. 14, 2013, Peter Bensinger, a former Drug Enforcement Administration chief under Presidents Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, speaks at a news conference in Chicago. Bensinger is one of eight former DEA chiefs that say the federal government needs to act now or it might lose the chance to nullify Colorado and Washington’s laws legalizing recreational marijuana use.

I mean, where else can you legally get guns, a badge, a kevlar vest and go around kicking in peoples’ doors and shooting their dogs?

In most countries not named “America”, that’s where. I say we send these assholes to Pakistan or Egypt. They can take their MRAPs with them.

In Ukraine their pols are actually noticing reality!

Hefty payroll taxes are one reason behind Ukraine’s massive gray economy, in which millions of workers are simply never declared by their employers as official employees.

To move labor out of the shadows, authorities are proposing to drastically cut the monthly contribution, which funds the heavily indebted pension system. Proponents argue that a wider tax base will make up for losses.

When you get freaking crazy about taking people’s money, they won’t give it to you. When you relax your overbearing takings, they are more likely to give you money! This would also result in strengthening the respect for the rule of law.

Of course in America, they’re going the “take away their guns and arm the feds to the teeth to make them respect the law” route. Ukraine, of course, has a lot of history with that approach.

People have been wondering why they’re taking so long to start deliberating on choosing the next pope, this article has an idea on why. Headline

Non-European bias before conclave begins

Sounds plausible, I know they wanted one of those Africans to be the next pope as Africa is a place where Christianity is growing. This would make it cooler for Africans and maybe get people happy about Catholicism and less happy with the murderous Sudanese type of Religion of Pieces type.

Now, my only use for buckets is to barf in, but this is a cool place to visit.

utah

Awesome. That’s not CGI, it’s a subterranean deal in Utah. I’ve been to Howe Caverns in NY and Luray Caverns in VA, they’re awesome. I really want to check this out.

Eh, not as funny as this morning, but I didn’t start off after reading about Chicago cops driving rental cars on patrol.

I’d love to see the rental agreement on that, somehow I doubt the insurance is $3/day.

I tried yesterday, but I was forcing it, it just wasn’t funny. But this morning I got a good belly laugh. I’ll save that story for a while.

Let’s start in Iraq.  Remember how we overthrew the Ba’athist Party (like Ba’al worship but with more baby killing) in Iraq?

As many as 40 Syrian soldiers and government employees have been killed by unidentified gunmen in Iraq.

They were among a group of Syrian nationals who crossed the border into Iraq to escape a Syrian rebel attack last week.

Iraqi officials were escorting the group to the Syrian border when they came under fire in the town of Akashat in Anbar province.

Authorities say a number of Iraqi soldiers were also killed in the ambush.

So are we allies with Syria now as J Effin Kerry is offering money to the people fighting them? Obama does like to fight both sides of any conflict (except against me).

In boy-fucking savage news, Obama’s partners for peace are helping Pakistani soldiers be all peaceful.

The Movement of the Taliban in Pakistan released a videotape on the fighting in the Mehsud areas of South Waziristan which includes graphic footage of the mutilation of several Pakistani soldiers who appear to have been killed in a firefight last summer

First, you have to admit that it’s kind of funny that the same boy-fucking, murderous, torturers who love to mutilate…well everybody and everything got their turbans in a bunch when some Marines pissed on their dead.

Also, I finally figured something out, when Taliban types say Religion of Peace, they mean “peaceful as the grave”, I feel so stupid I never figured that out before.

I call bullshit on this, but you have to respect the idiocy.

An Israeli soldier desecrated a Quran when he kicked it during a [religious] teaching workshop in the Al-Aqsa Mosque courtyards, and hit female students participating in the workshop,

Wait, no you don’t. Another example of exporting our values, we all know Minitrue just makes shit up to attack their enemies (me).

But you’d think that people who have set rules for how to beat the women they own would think of something other to accuse Israel of. Eh, it makes them murderously happy, so that’s all that matters.

Intellesting, the Norks have said they’re not abiding by the cease-fire.

North Korea warned it will cancel the Korean War cease-fire agreement on March 11

Apcray, there are two things wrong with that. First, where’s fucking McArthur when you need him?

Second, I turn 50 later on this month and I have a bunch of bets riding on me making it to 50 (you wouldn’t believe the odds I got 30 years ago), how fucking much would it suck if I lost that bet because the fucking Norks KILL US ALL!!!!!!!?

Eh, that’s all the overseas links I have. Let’s go back to America! My favorite country, it’s where I keep all my shit.

First, I can’t decide if this is funny, very funny, or endishly funny.

Jeb Bush has been making the rounds, calling me a racist hater who hates me some immigrants.

“It relates to this question of, we want your vote but we really don’t want you (asians V) on our team.”

Eh, standard Bush fare after all. Just cuz it’s lefties attacking McConnell for his slant-eyed wife, we all know the GOP is where the racism is.

This is where where You Make The Call!, this is the part I mean.

Bush, who would be a leading contender for the 2016 GOP presidential nomination if he chooses to run

A leader for the GOP nomination? I guess, if the GOP has decided they just don’t want anybody but the establishment to vote GOP next election. I would think he’s more likely to be running on another party’s ticket.

I was just thinking about how hilarious it would be if we went Bush-Clinton-Bush-Obama-Bush, with the twist at the end that Bush III runs as a Dem!

Think about it, Obama is not going to make Bush’ mistake, he’s going to jettison Biden before his last year so he can have an electable VP to run (Or he’s going to try to run a third time, but I’m not into that paranoia yet), so why not Bush? It’s so fucking hilariously infuriating that it just might happen!

In more, “We have no idea what the fuck is going on” GOP news, we read this,

The National Republican Senatorial Committee plans to expand its press operation to train campaigns earlier in the cycle on how to better handle the kind of candidate missteps that have plagued its party’s nominees.

The goal? To avoid what’s become known in GOP circles as “Todd Akin moments.”

You idiots want to avoid a “moment”? How about you avoid a McCain/Graham moment?

Nahhhh, they know how to win elections. Let’s be Dem lite! People like Dems, they’ll like Dem Lite even more! It’s worked so well the last two presidential elections!

As we all know, the Menendez deal is All About Sex(tm), so the Wash Post found some hooker to say, “I lied about Menendez”. So the Daily Caller notices, Hey, that’s the wrong hooker! A problem though, the Wash Post isn’t likely to post corrections, you can’t make a story All About Sex(tm) if you keep confusing people with corrections. And the few tens of thousands of people who will see the Daily Caller link? They’re just Tea Bagging assholes who can be safely ignored.

A little WE’RE ALL GONNA DIE!!!! from the sequester news.

First, just cuz they’re going to be furloughing a billion gov’t workers doesn’t mean they need to stop hiring critical workers.

Agriculture Department said it needs three “insect production workers” to help grow bollworms in Phoenix.

You have to admit, that’s a nice touch.

At first glance this will make Radley Balko happy. The Navy is getting out of the war on drugs.

U.S. Navy frigates will stop patrolling for drug runners by April because of forced sequestration budget cuts

Until he realizes that it will just mean domestic law-enforcement will just  have to spend more time and energy kicking down old ladies’ doors to shoot them and their little dogs too.

Sean at the NC Gun Blog (he of the NYS Boycott,) also writes about various gun-related things in his area, like this choir-boy who was shot. But that’s not why I’m linking, I’m linking for the rap sheet Sean linked. Fucking guy kept being convicted of various crimes (including multiple, felon with a gun charges) and the only sentence he served fully was a 90 day sentence. He had one sentence that was a mininum of 16 months and a maximum of 20 months. He served 5.

Less than 1/3 of what they claimed was the “miniumum” for a felon who was caught for repeatedly breaking gun laws. But if some poor fool in NYS puts more than 7 rounds in his 10/22 magazine as he’s terrorizing some tin cans,  he’ll go to jail for just as long or longer.

I did learn something from that boycott, Vltor is pronounce “Ultor”, they use the Roman U. So when you call them “Ultor” you’ll have the satisfaction of some tool correcting you and snottily saying, “It’s V-L Tor”.

In Notes On Crushing the Revolution, we see Missouri working with DHS to start a nice, registration scheme.

It’s as if there’s a rush to see who can spark the revolution.

In, It Sure Is A Good Thing Obama Is So Weakened He Won’t Be Able To Nominate Unfit Judges news, we see Kagan and Sotomayor acting as we expect lefties to act.  Making up their minds long before they hear the facts of the case and browbeating anybody and everybody who disagrees with them. It’s too long to excerpt, read the whole thing if you have a problem getting started in the morning and you’re out of coffee or Red Bull.

This one makes me laugh.  We’re going to have THE HIGHEST TAX REVENUE EVAH!!!!!!!!!!! this year, according to projections that ignore reality. Repeat after me, the CBO’s projections are wishful thinking piled on an ignorance of reality. I look forward to articles next year that talk about how low tax receipts are. When Bush cut taxes we had high tax receipts, when people raise taxes, what they take in goes down. I’d suggest you ask NY and CA pols about that, but they just can’t figure that out even after decades of watching it happen.

In hopeful news, Texas outlaws drones taking pictures. (they make it clear the camera-vehicle is unmanned).

That’s a slashdot link, they seem to think it’s directed at people like them taking pictures on other’s land, probably. But it’s also directed at the gov’t, they include satellites, so it’s for google and the gov’t.

It’s about being private on your own land. I’m all in favor of that. When I get my compound in the desert, it’s gonna have tank traps and AA, so I kind of hope they send their Cox Skyspy/Skybomber to my land.

In very surprising news, Christians are now the most oppressed religion in the world. I’d guess that’s because all the places that really hate the Jews have either killed them all or driven them out.

Enough of the endy, let’s get to the funny. There are just so many today you’d better take a big sip of your coffee now. I’ll wait.

I occasionally take Lindsey Lohan (tits, hey google!) in S. Weasel’s Dead Pool, saying, “She’ll be found floating in Charlie Sheen’s pool”.

Charlie Sheen has already paid a portion of Lindsay Lohan’s taxes, and now he’s offering to officially be her mentor,

Stoaty’s next Dead Pool starts Friday, so none of you take my pick!

Via i Own the World (then fix it!), we find a story that saddens me.

A popular horse show in Ocala is under quarantine after six cases of equine herpesvirus were linked to the Marion County showground.

Okay, which one of you has been to Florida lately? I haven’t been there in two years.

Via Zilla at Batshit Crazy News, we find this bit of catshit crazy news.

I’m Nala. 20 years old. Cis, vegan, multiracial, bisexual, demisexual, pagan, plural, catkin, (emphasis added V)witch.

My preferred pronouns are: chim, chimself, cher, cherself, che, chi.

She’s a cat trapped in a human’s body.

Seriously, I would love to go back to 1958 and try to explain this century. You know they’d all say, “See? We told you Rock and Roll would destroy America!” and I wouldn’t be able to argue. I mean, look at what it did to the 80s?

Harvey at IMAO channels his inner Joe Biden (I figure by repeated blows to the head), and continues Slo Joe’s Field and Stream interview. What makes it either very fucking funny or not funny at all is that it’s hard to tell Harvey’s post from the Field and Stream interview.

JOE BIDEN: Well, that’s true Joe. And, you know I keep hearing this malarkey about how Barack and I want to take your guns away and, frankly, I don’t know how this stuff gets started. Listen to me! Listen to what I say here! No one, I mean no one is coming to take your guns! People, get real here!

LIBERAL INTERVIEWER: So then, what exactly are you and the president calling for?

JOE BIDEN: What Barack is proposing has nothing to do with the Second Amendment. And, let me say this again! No one is coming to take your guns. All we’re proposing is just much needed, common sense legislation that will make it a federal offense for a private citizen to own a firearm.

Heh. Sort of. I guess.

Wait, that’s not fucking funny at all!

And the big finish. Stop cheering you jerks.

Via Doug Ross, we see this cop blog from Chicago getting all hilarious.

The city is so short of cars that they are handling out “rentals” to detectives and to sergeants working VRI! Chevy Impalas with NO emergency equipment.

With this comment making me laugh, but many of the comments are awesome.

Yes it is true, in the D unit anyway. We have a car with some BS lights but no siren. It would make a lot more sense to give the bosses the “non police” rental cars and trickle down their unmarkeds to us. That will never happen though because they’ve “earned” their take home police cars!!

I can understand why they’re short on cop cars, I saw this high-speed pursuit on, I think, Foxnews the other day where they wrecked like hundreds of cop cars chasing two guys in black suits.

I mentioned “tits”, so you know what that means! Pictures of titlarks below the fold! Just don’t tell cher, che might come and eat them.
