Some group up in Seattle called Washington CeaseFire has joined with that city’s mayor, Mike McGinn, to start a program where local businesses can become
magnets for violent criminals Gun Free Zones by signing a pledge and putting a nifty target decal in their windows.
Now, this is hardly the first place to try this idea, but I love the fact that even the moonbat geniuses behind this scheme seem to have a slight inkling about how this might turn out:
“We’re making a statement as a community” said Washington CeaseFire Board President Ralph Fascitelli. “We know this won’t stop someone determined to cause violence, but we hope that standing together and giving businesses a tool to say no to guns will change the conversation around gun violence. Maybe our message will even make it to Olympia – we need better tools now to stop gun violence in our community.”
Well, I’m sure it’s a comfort to know that if you happen to die on the job during the course of an armed robbery or when somebody’s angry, unhinged ex shows up looking for blood, “maybe” the conversation will have changed or a message will make it somewhere or something. And, hey, “tools” will have been used. Metaphorical tools, which are the best kind.

If Toomey made a deal with
the devil Bloomberg, as many suspect, it’s already biting him in the butt.
The deal, I presume, was that MAIG would stop running the “bad” ad.
But now they’re running a “good” ad. A kiss of death ad. An ad that will continually remind every GOP primary voter what he did, twisting the knife a little.
Deals with the devil never really turn out the way you hope.
I am kind of busy today, but I still birled the tubes so here’s some endy, some funny and some hotassery.

Turkish PM Backtracks On Obama-Brokered Deal With Netanyahu.
Shit, now we have to apologize to Israel for two things. First, Obama getting Netanyahu to apologize to terrorists enableers, and now this.

Global worming attacks Ukraine!
Heavy snow, extremely rare for late March, virtually paralyzed traffic in Kyiv, and led to many international flights out of the city’s airports delayed and cancelled.
I wonder if Al Gore was in the neighborhood.
A week or two ago I had a story about how
Britain Airstrip One investigated the assassination of one of Tsar Putin’s enemies in London and they hid the results (Ignorance is Strength!). Tsar Putin I shows his gratitude as only a Bond-Villain/KBG Agent/Tsar can.
Boris Berezovsky, the Russian oligarch who helped broker Vladimir Putin’s rise to the Kremlin’s top job only to become his fierce enemy, has been found dead at his home in Britain in unclear circumstances.
Eh, so does that mean Oceania is…has always been at war with Eurasia?

Press regulation: the royal charter deal is a move towards a better democracy
In the body
believe there is a need to totally re-evaluate the way we look at the relationship between the media and democracy. … I believe our developing concept of a duty of care should be extended to “a care” for our shared but fragile democratic values.
Freedom Is Slavery!
I was wrong, the Senate did pass a budget. It appears to be so full of poisoned pills that any Dem senator due for reelection next year voted against itand therefore, has no chance of being passed by the House so we still won’t have a budget.
I linked to Minitrue (The Hill) just for this quote though
Democrats had been dogged by criticism for failing to approve a budget resolution since 2009 and the vote removes that GOP talking point from the political scene.
Assholes. GOP talking point? That should be journalists’ talking point, you assholes pretend to be “impartial” even as you just root for your chosen side.
Speaking of worrying about being reelected, we see these assholes are not worried and if people would pay attention they should be.
The list of 20 GOP senators who voted to fund Obamacare. Some of the usual suspects, Chambliss, Hatch, Collins. Some I”m surprised like Cornyn and Isakson, and one I’m utterly shocked isn’t there, Fucking McCain. Of course, he’s up for reelection and I’m hoping his primary isn’t pretty. One I’m confused about, is Murkewkskey an Independent?

Fuck you Mitch McConnell. You especially are a slimy piece of shit. I look forward to you voting yes on the Take Veeshir’s Guns bill you and Feinstein are figuring out now.
Speaking of which…..
It would be funny if it weren’t true.
Obama’s EPA helping bestialists.
NCBA and the National Pork Producers Council are both furious with EPA for handing extremist groups illegally gathered data on farmers who operate confined animal feeding operations.
Motherfucking assholes are out of fucking control, they care not for laws, propriety or anything but advancing their religion.
This one is interesting, the Senate voted against any UN “Take Veeshir’s Guns” Treaty.
Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.) introduced an amendment that would prevent the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty in order to uphold the Second Amendment. His amendment passed on a 53-46 vote.
It worked on Kyoto, but this bit of good paranoia from my favorite ‘stan (SondraKistan) is good, paranoiac reading.
This is the conclusion, you’ll have to actually make with the clicky to read the build-up (Hint: It has to do with the DHS buying all the ammo in America so the Police can’t get any)
Okay, that’s all for now, people. I want a report on my desk in the morning to include:
1. How this might lead to a federal “civilian defense force.”
2. How this might lead to federal licensing of civilian ammunition purchases.
3. How this accommodates enforcement of the proposed UN arms treaty without a need to actually ratify it.
Good paranoia just keeps spreading, no one, and I mean no one (most especially his allies), trusts Obama to even pay lip-service to the Constitution.
Wherein Veeshir agrees with Obama!
President Barack Obama says each of his proposed steps to reduce gun violence should get a vote in Congress _ even an assault weapons ban that both parties agree stands little chance at passing.
First, get this shit over with. Second, if it fails then good, if it passes, then good. We need the fucking showdown soon. Nickle and diming our rights away is pissing me off.
I do wonder why he said it in Jordan, is he trying to make jihadis understand he’s doing his best to disarm us for their attacks?

I saw part of that press conference, I bet a dollar Netanyahu said some thing Obama didn’t want him to say, like saying we are both going to go after Iran. Stuff Obama can’t now say, “I never said that.”
I say that cuz Obama’s not that bright and the last time they got together Netanyahu made him look stupid.
Eh, I’m not all that in the mood to pay attention to overseas, it’s just too depressing.
So let’s go to the US where’s it’s freaking hilariously depressing.
It’s a good thing what happened in Cyprus could never happen here!
California’s top-end taxpayers — already steamed over a recent hike in the nation’s highest state income tax — are now fuming over a new $120 million retroactive tax grab on small business owners.
That’s funny. “We need more money so we’re changing the tax code retroactive to 2008. The funniest part? They’re charging them interest on the money they’re stealing.
First, it’s a story of a Dem politician being better than we are.
An elected official for the City of Everett is accused of berating a child with special needs while dining at the Texas Roadhouse located in Everett on March 6.
Don’t you know who I am!
The spokesman claims Matewsky left without paying his bill and even threatened to have the health department shut the restaurant down.
But wait! There’s still more!
Matewsky denies that the incident ever happened and that the allegations are politically motivated…..
Matewsky has since reportedly apologized to the restaurant’s staff.
I didn’t do it! he says after he apologizes. Of course that’s not the end, they don’t write his name as, “Matewsky (D)” at all (as would have been in the headline if he had that (R)) and only have this in the 9th of 10 paragraphs
Matewsky, a 30-year veteran of Everett politics, topped four other Democrats
Eh, at least they did kinda mention it even if it was after most people had stopped reading.
I have to admit that I’m impressed. The headline threw me off, I had written this part before reading it because I expected them to act as if Obama xecutively ordering shit is a new thing, but they didn’t. This is actually a piece of journalism.
Now, as he launches his second term, Obama has grown more comfortable wielding power to try to move his own agenda forward, particularly when a deeply fractured, often-hostile Congress gets in his way.
Then they list a bunch of stuff that I knew and some I had tried to repress.
That’s what I get for clicking links.
Actions have consequences, Colorado passed their, “Magpul’s products are illegal here” law so Magpul is leaving
Good for them.
Via Say Uncle, Oreo Gun! You can use it for hunting elephants and Rosie O’Donnel.
It’s an interesting day, (insert smug recitation of Chinese curse thing) so let’s start with the most interesting.
Let’s start with a GIF from me to you.
We’ve all seen accusations flying at Syria over using chemical weapons, I take that with a grain of salt, but I have to say that they did it. Why?
“Terrorists fired rockets containing chemical materials on Khan al-Assal in Aleppo province, and preliminary information suggests 15 people were killed, mostly civilians,” the state news agency SANA and Syrian state television said.
He who smelt it, dealt it.
I could be wrong, but if jihadis had chemical weapons they would have used them on Israel long before now.
Now they’ve crossed the line that Obama done drew. (an artist’s conception, accurate until the last line)
In the 70s we saw the Arafish and his PLO terrorists start a civil war in Lebanon between Muslims and Christians, but they’ve cowed the Christians mostly so what’s a murderous group of religion of peacers to do?
Ayyad, the Shiite cleric, denied the accusation and said the men who beat the Sunni sheikhs were “uncontrollable” youth known for troublemaking.
Now it’s between Sunni and Shiite, just as Allah intended.
Now this is very interesting. Supposedly Cyprus is rescinding the “We’re gonna take your money” deal.
IMF head Christine Lagarde, speaking at a financial conference in Germany, added her voice to the chorus of backtracking.
I wonder, was it the riots or Tsar Putin I? I know which way I’m betting, and it ain’t on Teh Peepul, it is EUnuchstan after all.
Two “Fuck You Harry Reid” links.
First, he’s blaming the deaths of Marines in a training exercise on the Sequester. You know, fuck you Nevada. This man has said so many despicable things over the last 10 years that I no longer blame him, I blame the mother fucking assholes who vote for Mr. We’ve Lost The Iraq War. I saw this everywhere but on Drudge first.
Here’s Reid saying something stupid about a budget.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid warned Monday that a failure to quickly finish up a 2013 stopgap spending bill could restrict the time that senators have to battle it out over the 2014 budget resolution later this week.
So once again we see the problems of not having a budget are causing them to not have a budget.
It’s like a vicious circle only it accuses me of being stupid.
Okay, this looks like good news, but it ain’t.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has decided that a proposed assault weapons ban won’t be part of a gun control bill
You know they’re going to do the “sensible” gun laws (like universal background checks), McCain, Graham and the rest need to be able to say, “We got rid of the stupid bill and kept this sensible one.”
Fuck you. That’s all I have to say about that, I’m thinking more shit but I’m not ready to write that yet.
There was also enough consensus among the commission members to recommend bans on high-capacity magazines and the possession, sale or transfer or guns — both military-style firearms and handguns — that are capable of firing more than 10 rounds of ammunition without reloading.
First, the guy stole the guns so no laws except one that mandates going back a thousand years or more and making it so nobody ever discovers gunpowder would have stopped that, as for the mag ban, he would have taken about 9 extra seconds to load two more mags.
It’s just CT pols dancing in the blood of children to make sure there are no citizens in CT, just subjects, but let’s look at the part that’s making me laugh.
mandating all its K-12 classrooms have doors that can be locked from the inside.
I feel for the teachers who leave the classroom and find it locked when they get back. Every substitute in CT is praying that shit don’t happen. Seriously, I predict at least once a day that some teacher is locked out. Then, CT pols will have to pass a law making it a felony to lock a classroom if there’s no shooter which will lead to…. hilarity!
Now this sucks, this really pisses me off. America has always had a “first to invent”, so if you thought something up first, you were the one who could get the patent, but now it’s “First to file”, so if someone finds out about your idea, they can patent it so long as they get there first and claim they invented. That’s fucked up. That’s very bad. That article is pretty good about patents if anybody’s interested.
There are many things that they could do to reform the patent system, the best would be to go back to when business methods were not patentable, I have never seen a business method patent that I thought deserved to be patented. Not a one, and I’ve looked at many thousands of class 705 patents. Most of them are intended only to sue other people.
Even worse, some of the shit that gets patented is ridiculous. There’s a patent for “Exercising Your Cat With A Laser Pointer” and another for “Swinging Side To Side On A Swing”. For instance, this person got a patent on milking a cow
. A method of milking an animal having at least two teats, the method comprising:
a stimulation phase in which at least one of the teats of the animal is stimulated; and
a milking phase in which the animal is milked;
wherein the method comprises:
applying a stimulation phase and a milking phase to one of the teats of the animal, and
applying substantially only a milking phase to at least one of the other teats of the animal.
Anybody who knows how to milk a cow will notice that they’ve patented how people have been milking cows since…. there have been cows.
Many, like that one, are not in 705, but they’re been patented because business method patents are legal (State St decision where a judge said, “That’s my decision, oh, and business method patents are legal now.”)
That is the Full Patent Attorney Employment Decision.
SondraK somehow got a picture from one of Bloomberg’s nightmare last night. Not sure how.
DHS buying $9 million worth of guns from H&K and Sig
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?
“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.
But it gets better.
SPEAKER JOHN BOEHNER: We do not have an immediate debt crisis.
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.
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…
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.
Update: Fixed the headline
Now, I hate to argue with Harvey (if I get him angry, the FrnakJ personality might resurface), but I’d say this would be a new anthem.
In Ohio, two senators have introduced SB36, which would prohibit firearms seizures, registration and bans in their state.
Sen. Jared Carpenter introduced a bill that would prohibit Kentucky from enforcing new federal gun control laws if they’re enacted. The measure passed by a vote of 34-3.
The Idaho House of Representatives passed a bill that criminalizes the act of enforcing any new federal laws than ban, restrict, confiscate, or require registration of firearms or ammunition in violation of the state’s constitution.
HB219 passed by a 55-13 vote.
In Louisiana, Rep. Jim Morris sponsored a bill that “prohibits the enforcement of federal restrictions regarding the ownership or possession of semi-automatic firearms.”
The House Public Safety Committee in Oklahoma passed HB2021 that would also prohibit the enforcement of federal gun laws.
House Bill 1076, sponsored by Rep. Steve Toth in Texas, would disallow state and local police from enforcing new gun control measures passed by the federal government.
In Kansas, the House approved three pro-gun bills, one of which prohibits the federal government from enforcing gun laws or bans on firearms and accessories manufactured, sold, or kept in the state.
The “Arizona Firearms: Prohibited Enforcement” bill would make it a Class 6 felony for the federal government to enforce new laws or regulations on guns, accessories and ammunition owned or manufactured in the state.
Senate bill 63 in Michigan would exempt firearms and firearms accessories made and sold exclusively in Michigan from federal gun restrictions.
And in Washington State, a state that recently legalized recreational pot use, HB 1371 reads as follows:
“Any federal law, rule, regulation, or order created or effective on or after January 1, 2013, shall be unenforceable within the borders of Washington if the law, rule, regulation, or order attempts to: (a) Ban or restrict ownership of a semiautomatic firearm or any magazine of a firearm; or (b) Require any firearm, magazine, or other firearm accessory to be registered in any manner.”
I ask once again, should federal gun legislation pass, will President Obama respect the laws passed in the individual states, as he has in regards to marijuana use?
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.

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?

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.
Okay, headlines that just seem fucking ridiculous.

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.

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.

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.
It’s hard to take what’s going on seriously just as it’s hard not to get fucking OUTRAGED!!!! at what’s going on.
I’d call it “cognitive dissonance”, but there’s not a lot of cognition going with the dissonating.
It is to the point that writing about the news is like writing about telekinetic squirrels.
In other words, it can’t possibly even be real, so writing about it feels creepy, pointless, and silly.
I’ve noticed that Certain People think that because I am not on American soil, I might not be aware of U.S. news. I keep telling those people that I have the internet. Sadly for me, I’m indeed following all the crazy shit going on, and the only reason I don’t blog about it six times a day is because IT IS INSANE, OH MY GOD, WHAT THE HELL?
I’m with you. But I’m pretty creepy, I love pointless and you have to accept the silly with the scary.
The talking heads’ twittering excitement over the Dow is hilarious. “Can the economy be this strong while unemployment is still high?” they ask.
When gas is up, it’s inflation. When bread and milk is up, it’s inflation. When gold is up, it’s inflation. When the average price of anything goes up, it’s a sign of inflation…
Except stocks. When the average price of stocks goes up, it’s because the economy is strong.
Don’t think too hard about it, that way lies brain damage. Repeated facepalms can do that.
Publicola is tracking the CO “let’s hassle the law-abiding” shit, it’s in a few posts so you’ll have to scroll. One bit.
HB 1224 passed 34-30 with 1 rep excused. That’s the magazine capacity limit bill….
HB 1224 now heads to the governor’s desk. Again if I’m not mistaken, if the governor does not sign within 2 weeks of final passage a bill will become law. Hickenlooper can sign it into law, or just sit back and do nothing. He’d have to actively veto it to stop it. So if he does not veto it, Colorado will have a magazine ban effective July 1rst of 2013.
Let’s jerk law-abiding people around and make it take 6 extra seconds to fire 30 rounds at the range while sending jobs and people out of state!
This is hilarious.
Illegal immigrants have started surrendering to local Border Patrol agents after crossing the Rio Grande, convinced they’ll be released by Immigration and Customs Enforcement,
Do you realize our Border Patrol people are now doubling as coyotes? Telekinetic squirrels indeed.
In News Of The Expected, a few days ago we saw Syrian terrorists getting active in the Golan Heights, so what’s a blue-helmeted peacekeeper to do?
The UN has halted peacekeeping patrols in the Golan Heights amid fears that fallout from the Syrian war
Listen, they’re keepers of the peace, they don’t get involved in fighting.
I love this one. So the oligarchs of the EU decided on a budget and sent it to the EUnuch Parliament.
MEPs have rejected the EU budget deal agreed by leaders last month….
Dublin believes a deal will be done within months.
Months. Let’s say they’re off by a year or two, that still means they’ll be ahead of us in actually having a budget.
I keep hearing Beppe Grillo is the next Mussolini, I figure he’s Chimpino Grillolini. Why? The picture they use is one of him yelling, which lets you know he’s bad. Also this bit
Since then, the country has been in a state of political paralysis as Mr Grillo refuses to contemplate a power-sharing deal with the centre-Left Democratic party.
The platform of his party was that he would refuse to work with any other party. So they’re upset with his keeping the central platform of his party.
As for fascism, it’s based on fasces, which are the bundles of sticks the Romans used which is/was a symbol of “working together”. He’s also claiming the EU is just waiting to recoup some of their investments in Italy before they drop Italy.
When that happens, he’ll be blamed. Count on it.
I love this one too. So NYC has a rat problem, just like any other hundreds of year old city with moldering, decaying sections, docks and underground areas, so they’re looking to fix it. A laudable goal, too bad it’s NYC pols who are in charge.
They’re going to sterilize female rats, which will mean they’re going to spread sterilizing stuff around the city.
I don’t know exactly how that’s going to fuck things up, but I do know that it will fuck things up and it won’t sterilize all the rats so all it will do is fuck things up without actually solving the problem. It will require a fix for whatever that fix fucks up.
Today’s “Here, this’ll fool the rubes” via SondraK. OFA, the people who sell access to Obama, have this to say.
We are not a partisan organization; we will hold both Republicans and Democrats accountable to ensure that they are advancing the agenda endorsed by the majority of the American people. We are not a political organization…
Non-partisan suckers of Obama dick. Some work the shaft harder than others.
Via Cold Fury we see James Lileks getting intemperate. No, really, James “I’m the nicest, most pleasant guy in the world” fucking Lileks. He’s talking about Piers Morgan explaining to us dim Americans how it’s a mayor’s job to make us do the stuff he thinks is best.
Not “encourage.” Not “exalt.” Not “inspire by example.” MAKE. It’s always MAKE with these people. If you can’t make people do things, how are you going to get anything done? That Volga Canal isn’t going to dig itself, you know.
(Sorry. Reducto ad Stalin.)
That’s an eddiebear rant with extra fucksickles from him.
I’ve seen some people getting upset about this, once again leave it to me to be all contrarian and shit.
The Obama administration is drawing up plans to give all U.S. spy agencies full access to a massive database that contains financial data on American citizens and others who bank in the country, according to a Treasury Department document seen by Reuters.
You know they’re already doing it, for once Obama is practicing the transparency he preached.
I wrote about the firefight (including automatic weapons and hand grenades) in a Mexican town on the Texas border. Nobody is covering it. Not CNN, not the NY Times, nobody in Minitrue has touched it. Here’s a google news search for “Reynosa”, the town where it happened.
‘Four trucks filled with bodies’ after Reynosa firefight
Monitor – 1 day ago
REYNOSA — Fear and panic filled the streets of Reynosa on Sunday night as rival gunmen battled during a three-hour firefight that saw …

All four articles. Seriously? Machine guns and hand grenades in a city on the border with Texas and 4 articles on the front page in English?
So the point, an interesting article.
A higher percentage of journalists in Mexico suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) than among correspondents who covered the conflicts in the Middle East, Bosnia, Chechnya or Rwanda.
Yeah, I bet. When Mexican cartels kill you, your dog ,your family and your milkman for reporting on them, well, that’s kinda traumatic.
A little hilarity,
But the Mexican government, the health authorities and even media outlets themselves still aren’t taking measures to protect reporters.
That’s because they’re too busy hiding it.
I have reason to wonder about the reliability of Breitbart, but this article feels right.
The U.S will take part in deliberations over the U.N. Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) starting on March 18.
When the treaty was last debated–July 2012–the U.S. joined Russia, Indonesia, and India in saying they needed more time to think about it. Then, the very day after Obama was re-elected, “the U.S. Mission to the U.N. made clear its support for renewed ATT negotiations.”
And by “feels right”, I mean, “It feels like a hot poker up the ass.”
The Things That Bother Veeshir.
I have a package coming via UPS (For the record, I hate UPS and have for over 20 years, they almost never get my package to me ontime or easily, my favorite was when they delivered my package to the same street in another town and the girl asked me if I knew my address.)
So I checked their “package tracking” deal and saw this. See if you can see why it bothers me.

That’s how fucking furriners write dates, not muricans. It’s 3/18/2013.
I know, petty. But it’s the little things that bother me the most. I’ve in denial on as much of the big stuff as I can be.
I promised you oyster herpes and I delivers what I promises!
The incurable, deadly virus is, however, alarming fishing communities in Europe, where oyster herpes seems to be spreading—and could go on spreading as seas continue to warm, experts say.
It’s funny how in the midst of a cooling spell, all this warmening is going to KILL US ALL!!!!!!!!
Via the semi-complete Great Global Warmmongering List (I say “semi-complete” because nobody can track all the idiocies and ridiculosities they claim)
Don’t send this article to anybody you know in NYC, they might try to fix the rat problem by giving them herpes.
Actually, check that. Send it. What happens in NYC is good for comic relief now that I live 2,500 miles away.
