First up, I NY link. NYC has gas lines out the ying-yang, gas stations are running out of gas so people waiting an hour for gas don’t get any.
Gee, it’s a good thing NYCers voted Bloomberg into office again, after he and the city council decided by imperial fiat that the term limits Teh Peepul voted for did not apply to them. Now, not only can they not get a Big Gulp with extra salt, they can’t get gas to drive to someplace they can.
They have the gov’t they deserve. That makes me laugh.
Next up, remember how when our fine, political, intellectual, social and moral betters told us we had to raise the debt limit so they could get the fiscal house in order and it wouldn’t happen again? Remember when we said, “Fuck you assholes, stop spending our fucking money”?
Well, here we are again.
The United States will hit its statutory borrowing limit near the end of 2012,
I’m sure this time, this time!, they’ll work it out. I mean, they’re going to explain how they need to raise the borrowing limit but that’s just so they can’t the fiscal house in order and otherwise, we’ll be boned.
You know, cuz we’re so not boned right now. If we had been a little more boned a few years ago, we might not be so boned now. But it’s boned, all the way down.
Next up, Did We Lose The Fucking Cold War? link.
Police are allowed in some circumstances to install hidden surveillance cameras on private property without obtaining a search warrant, a federal judge said yesterday.
Motherfuckers. Some time back I said that lately it’s been the worst part of the 90s with the added attraction that it appears we’ve lost the Cold War. I was exaggerating for effect. Now? Not so fucking much.
At one time I would have been sure the Supreme Court would not let this happen, that was before campaign finance reform that curbed the freedom of political speech that the Supreme Jackasses said was A-O-Fucking-Kay. Seriously, the whole fucking point of the First Amendment and it was shot to hell. The First Amendment isn’t just so you could stick a crucifix in a jar of piss, it’s so you can call the gov’t the assholes they are. Now, I can’t buy an ad tomorrow calling Obama an asshole because it’s 60 days before an election.
I went to a Lebanon Now! looking for a Syrian link, I found two that are fucking disturbing.
The West has raised fears Syria’s revolution is falling into the hands of Islamic extremists, but many rebels, and even some peaceful activists, say they are willing to tolerate jihadist fighters for lack of a better option.
I used to read Kavkaz dot org (Chechen site, no linky as it’s now just terrorists) back in 1999-maybe 2003 or so, that and the official Chechnyan Gov’t website (went away, came back jihadi).
They weren’t the puppet Russian gov’t, but the gov’t supposedly of the people. They were cool. They were fighting the Russians who were killing and raping them and their women, often in that order. They would steal young men and then ransom back the bodies. They’d go into a village and kill every military-aged male (16-60). They razed Grozny, I mean they fucking surrounded the city of hundreds of thousands and shelled it into rubble. I’d read a story on Kavkaz or the gov’t site, read the same story on Pravda or another Russian site, and then AFP or someone would have it a week later. AFP almost always was much closer to the Chechen’s version. They would say they killed puppet government types, the Russians would report the guy dying amid “hundreds of children dead in a baby-milk factory” or something and AFP would have a story about General So-And-So, new mayor of some Chechen city, was killed when his car with his bodyguards was shot up.
Then, 9/11 happened and they had a message of condolence for America and called jihadis ‘terrorists’ and ‘assholes’ (more or less, more flowery language and less profanity).
Then fucking Bush went to fucking Russia and said, “Chechnya who?” for some bullshit concession from Tsar Putin I, that Putin never followed through on, and the Chechnyans knew they were alone. So they started to accept terrorist help. Then, they were killing school-children. That’s what Syria has to look forward to.
In the wake of the recent murder of Brigadier General Wissam al-Hassan in broad daylight in Ashrafieh, March 14 MPs have been frank in expressing their fears of further killings among their own ranks. Indeed, security sources have suggested that future attacks will target strategic opposition figures rather than cause widespread public panic with indiscriminate bombings.
Lebanon is another place that let jihadis in only to find out they were fucked.
They were happy about Hezbollah fucking with Israel, and after Israel blew the shit out of southern Lebanon, the Lebanese were happy about Hezbollah getting around UN shit to re-arm. Then, fucking Hezbollah started using those weapons to kill Lebanese people and pols they didn’t like (you know, the way fucking jihadis do), and the Lebanese were all, “You were supposed to use those weapons on Jews!”, and the jihadis were all, BANG, you’re dead.
I could forgive Chechnya, they were done in, being slowly destroyed as a nation, and that was their only hope. But the fucking Lebanese were not against the wall and they know what happens when you let jihadis in, but they let their Jew-hatred get the better of them.
The stupid mother-fuckers used to have the most beautiful place in the middle east, Beirut was Paris on the Med or whatever, then they let Yassir Arafish in, had their civil war that fucking destroyed the unity and peace of the fucking nation and then they were Syrian fucking puppets.
The stupid motherfuckers have only themselves to blame, but it’s still no fun to fucking watch.
I can’t do any Fast and Furious posts because I get really fucking mad. My fucking gov’t sold fucking guns to murderous drug cartels in order to take away my fucking guns. That’s all about the fucked upedness.
I will do a Benghazi link
. Doug Ross has provided a helpful timeline of what was going on in Benghazi and Washington at any time. It’s disturbing.
I don’t like to go to Doug Ross’ place, it’s just too fucking depressing, fucking guy (and cobloggers) are just too on top of shit I’d rather be in denial about.
An Ontario judge has issued a restraining order against Iran’s property in Canada — including its embassy in Ottawa and a former cultural centre in Toronto — as the family of an American woman killed in a terrorist attack tries to collect a $13-million judgment by a U.S. court from a wrongful death claim against Iran’s security agency.
First, good on ya Canada. I take back some of the stuff I’ve said about you.
The embarrassing part is, of course, that we need fucking Canada to do this. They put the motherfuckers embassy in hock.
Balls, Canada has them these days. Huh, maybe electing Obama has had a salutatory effect on the world, they realize that maybe, just maybe, they need a crazy fucking cowboy running around.
Or… maybe it’s just that Canada is all wound up from not having hockey.
Eh, I’ll give them the benefit of the doubt and say “Balls, Big Bouncy, need a shopping cart to carry them, Balls”
That’s enough, I’m all wound up now, I need to kick the dog.
Don’t remember where I got the first three links, probably Drudge or Ace or the Puppy Blender.
