Update Below With More Operation Names!!!!!!!!

People are making a big deal about the current non-kinetic actions against ISIS not having a name.

I’ll nominate a name, Operation Look As If I’m Doing Something.

They’ve bombed one artillery piece so far

Two U.S. Navy F/A-18 Hornet strike fighters operating from the carrier USS George HW Bush (CVN-77) have struck an artillery piece operated by Iraq and Syria Islamic State (ISIS or ISIL) terrorists near Irbil in northern Iraq.

Wow! An artillery piece!!!!!!! That’ll show the murderous terrorists busily committing more genocidal actions than the murderous genocidists in Sudan!!!!!!!

Israel, so far as I know, hasn’t named their war, but then, they’re actually doing something.

Just look at the pictures of Gaza, they’re blowing the shit out of all terrorist positions and making it as painful as possible for all in Terrorstan.

They did the same thing in southern Lebanon a few years ago and look how that worked out. Hezbollah has not really bothered Israel too much lately.

What makes me laugh is Hamas demanding that Israel stop the ‘blockade’ as a condition. You know, so they can get more missiles and more concrete to build more terror tunnels.

 

 

I don’t know what Putin’s named his poking Obama with a stick operation, I’d bet it’s Operation Sudetenland. He’s just testing to see what we’ll do and what the EUnuchs will do.

One thing, a week or so ago I noticed that the Kyiv Post had a story about how Russia was pondering blocking air routes over Russia, I didn’t post it because I figured it was just them trying to get the west worked up. Now, I see that Russia is making such a plan public.

Which makes this story kind of scary.

Ukraine’s security chief Valentyn Nalyvaichenko said that Kremlin-backed separatists on July 17 intended to shoot down a Russian passenger plane to give Moscow a pretext for conventionally invading Ukraine.

 

I figure he’s named that Operation I Want A War II

Back when Tsar Putin I wanted to Look Strong, in the late 90s,  a bunch of Moscow apartment buildings were blown up and blamed on Chechnya. This was before they went full Jihadi, they denied they were doing it.

So a resident noticed that someone was doing something suspicious in his building and called the cops. They caught some KGB.. FSB Guys planting a bomb (Ryazan incident), and they said, “It was a test and you passed!!!”, methinks a failing grade would have been a blown up apartment building.

So when someone says Tsar Putin I is considering killing Russians to foment a war, well, I’d take that seriously.

I don’t speak Mandarin, but China fucking with Japan, the Philippines and Vietnam in the South China Sea is probably named, “We Want That Oil-Filled Place“.

I’d hope the Japanese are naming their operation in response, ” Operation Go Fuck Yourselves

Japanese fighter jets shadowed Chinese aircraft patrolling over disputed waters, China’s Ministry of Defense said on Thursday,

 

Although Operation Nanking would be funnier and endier and therefore, apropos.  It might also remind China they don’t want to get the Japanese worked up again.

The world is realizing that America is not going to do shit anywhere except against Americans so they’re all on their own.

I do figure that Obama has a name for the operation of “losing’ all the emails showing their perfidy, It’s “Operation What Are You Gonna Do? Impeach Me?

The revelation that Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services administrator Marilynn Tavenner did not retain her e-mails means that more than 20 witness in the Obama administration to lose or delete e-mails without notifying Congress, according to the top House investigator.

 

It seems obvious to me.

 

Important, Nother Operation Name Update!!!!!!

As I said above, others are noticing they’re on their own.

like Israel and Egypt and KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia V), against revisionist actors, like Iran and its assets. It’s in this context that we should read the current situation. Traditional American allies are effectively teaming up against the Obama administration.

 

I know it’s not on purpose, but he managed to bring the backers of al Quaeda together with Israel.

Against us.

That’s funny and endy.

To The Max!!!!

What a bunch of shit. Cops are no longer peace officers, they’re revenue generators and that, like much else in the world today,  pisses me off.

 

For those of you who don’t click vids (and do read the blog, so…all 1 of you), a guy keeps walking back and forth in a crosswalk in traffic to get people driving through the crosswalk while the asshole cop is in it.

Notice, they’re not actually near the guy, but it’s the law that you cannot drive across a crosswalk while someone is in it. Even if the walker is on the other side of the road.

So it’s the law, but that’s all about the sliminess.

As Uncle says, Live Free or There.

Via the Outrider, who likes to piss me off.  He says it’s Sommerville, Mass, outside Boston. Definitely near Boston, you can tell by the accent.

I’ll tell you what sup.

Life imitates Camus!

A Chinese city has been sealed off and 151 people have been placed in quarantine since last week after a man died of bubonic plague

 

Ugh.  These are people who have less regard for life than French colonizers, that’s not going to end well.

 

So not only is Tsar Putin I’s state media (they’re like MSNBC  and CNN but they have to be forced to lie for their Dear Leader) lying ridiculously about his Cossacks shooting down a civilian plane, but now he’s sick and tired of Teh Peepul acting all upset and stuff.

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed several laws on July 22, increasing liability for separatism and violation of regulations for holding rallies.

 

I just hope Obama does not get any ideas on that.

You have to like the bit about cracking down on “calls for separatism” as he’s fomenting separatism in other countries. That’s a nice touch.

Speaking of evil empires,

Identifying Backdoors, Attack Points, and Surveillance Mechanisms in iOS Devices… In his talk Zdziarski demonstrates “a number of undocumented high-value forensic services running on every iOS device” and “suspicious design omissions in iOS that make collection easier.”

So what do you think, murderous, commie, Chinese dictators having their slaves put it in or just Apple being Apple?

They’ve both been watching Google pretty closely after all so that’s a tough call.

 

A rare disagreement between Veeshir and Israel.

Israeli envy says country deserves Nobel Prize for “restraint”

Really? You people want to be grouped with the Arafish, Kofi, What-Genocide?, Annan and Obama? I respect Israel far too much to want that to happen.

You’ve seen that commercial about the “Framily Plan” where Gordahn shows up uninvited? Well, in real life his name is J. Effin Kerry.

Michael Oren, who until recently served as Israel’s ambassador in Washington, said Monday that US envoy John Kerry was coming to the region despite Sunday’s hot-mic incident making it clear that he had not been invited.

Okay, that’s funny and shows that, despite the faux pas on the Nobel, Israel still has its head on straight.

I wonder if that had something to do with the Obama admin canceling flights to Israel? He’s petty enough for that so…

 

This one is pretty darn funny too.

A conservative of color had the unmitigated gall to show up to a Democratic Front Group’s gathering (NAACP edition) and was rightly attacked in a vicious manner, but that’s just expected and not funny.

This quote from the article is what’s funny.

*Note: FreedomWorks is not funded by the Koch brothers.

Heh. disassociating themselves from an evil empire is kinda funny.

 

Geez, I just want to send the “children”, their parents and gang-banger friends back to their own countries, but Pelosi apparently wants us to crucify them.  She wants us to treat them like Jesus.

Hard core but probably a little overreactive.

 

I don’t get the problem with this.

Stoners in Colorado are using their EBT cards (not food stamps, just regular welfare) at pot dispensaries.

If it’s the Most Evil Thing In The World to drug test welfare recipients and pot is legal, why should anybody have any problem with this?

 

I haven’t seen this link any where for a long time so I’ll post it.

If you’re so inclined, these guys deliver pizzas to IDF soldiers on the frontline. Pizza for the IDF you can attach a message if you’re so inclined. .

So dat’s what sup.

And That’s Why I Blog So Sporadically

What is going on so often pisses me off so I’m much better off not paying attention. Watching the Federal Gov’t become a thugocracy is just too depressing so let’s do some other current events.

Football!!!!!!

An illustration on how most Foreskins fans feel today.

skins

 

So somebody started a # on twitter to get new ideas. Most are okay, but I’m rooting for the Washington Elizabeth Warrens, that’s even more insulting than Redskins. Let’s teach them a lesson.

I will say that this one has the best chance since it’s approved groups used in a respectful manner (for some values of “respect”)

Not the Forsekins

 

Via the Jawas.

I mentioned in my earlier post that our insurance was going up due to the ACA. It’s not!

Instead of our rates going up, our insurance is being completely discontinued. Under the new regulations, a group policy cannot consist of two members if they are husband and wife – even if the two members hold two different policies within the same group. We were advised by Anthem that we should go through the exchanges and purchase individual health insurance.

There’s a problem with this, though – my husband works for a school district that requires employees to either buy health insurance through the district or show documentation annually that he is insured through another group policy. We started purchasing a group policy through our LLC several years ago when the cheapest policy, through Kaiser and after the district contribution, was more than $1000 a month.

At that time, insurance for our family through a small business group policy was just under $600 a month. It wasn’t a great policy, but we put aside the $400 a month difference. Most years we saw a profit from this. We had one catastrophic year where we paid more in out-of-pocket expenses by about $500 than what we’d saved for the year. Forming an LLC, moonlighting to supplement a school district income, and purchasing a small business group policy has become a not uncommon practice among the employees who don’t have a spouse with a job that provides health insurance. It’s certainly been cheaper and has allowed employees the freedom to choose their health insurance and choose how much to budget for insurance.

Over the years, our small business group policy has risen in cost to $950 a month. The not quite comparable district policy is nearly $1500 a month after the district’s contribution. Because my husband is a technical worker and not a teacher, he is not represented by a union and so this is about $100 more than what teachers will pay per month.

Thanks to Obamacare, we are being forced to pay over $500 more a month for health insurance so we can keep the doctors we like. We’re losing our deductible contribution for the year since our deductible resets in January but our health insurance resets in July. I can’t for the life of me figure out what we’re gaining from this. And I don’t know how forcing mom-and-pop businesses out of group plans that most closely match their demographic and in to policies that are expensive enough to close a barely-break-even business is helping small business, or the economy.

And it’s interesting to try to figure out if they’re intended or unintended.

In an update to WTEFinF? post, we see this bit of hilarity.

The kicker is that under Obamacare, the Evanston, Ill.-based team, comprised of more than 50 “employees,” is considered a “large employer” and Northwestern must provide pregnancy-related health care for the all-male team.

To quote Lippy the Lion’s friend, hardee-har-har-har.

Parnoid Enough

Posted: February 6, 2014 by veeshir in Government FAIL, Nanny State, Notes on the Revolution

I never got a CCW in VA I also don’t have one in AZ, but here I can carry as the Constitution says.

Because I don’t like the idea of the gov’t knowing I carry. Now I’m happy I do that, recall the guy who the MD police harassed because he had a CCW and now we see this.

So we all saw Radley’s Balko’s story with vid on cops home-invading people, disabling their home security and lying about the events (they claimed they knocked before entering, for instance, but you can see them knock and storm in with no pause) , the people they wanted weren’t there and it was credit card fraud, not some violent felon.

So now we find out why they home-invaded that way.  One of the people in the house had a CCW, he was not one of the people they wanted.

But citing the fact that one of the occupants in the house — Justin Ross — had applied and was approved for a gun permit  is probably most disturbing of all. First, hardened criminals who are a threat to kill cops tend not to be the sort of people who bother with permits, or to register their firearms with the government.

Exactly. Law-abiding gun owners abide by the law. If they had knocked, he would have let them in if they had a warrant.

So in other words, the cops are attacking the homes of people who legally carry guns. As Radley (who left Reason for the Puff Hos and now the Wash Post but who’s totally not a leftist libertarian) says,

But it’s much more likely that Justin Ross might feel the need to defend himself upon hearing unidentified parties break down two doors, followed by the sight of several armed men in his home. Indeed, that’s very nearly what happened.

They’re courting a Cory Maye scenario, cops busted in, they claimed they yelled cops, he claimed they didn’t, he killed on of the black-clad home invaders and was on death row for a decade before he was pardoned, not declared innocent.

Mother fucking mother fuckers.

That’s my scariest scenario, some tactical operators acting tactically home-invade me without announcing who they are and I shoot one.

Or worse, they shoot me. I hate when that happens.
