Above the Post Important Update:

Shit, this was the one story I really wanted in this post.

The first lady isn’t happy to just invade the Oscars, she’s getting a TV show!

a new TV series set in that sci-fi universe … a spinoff, tentatively titled Star Trek: Captain Worf.

Geez, she just can’t leave us alone.

I’ve been too wordy lately, I’ll try to shut up and blog.

This post is going to answer the question: Can you step on a post that’s a repost?

I didn’t want to post again today, but my tabs are full.

First, some endy funny.

So Obama started his “Pay for Play” site and did it with his usual competence.

They didn’t get related intertubes names so

.net address by the time Obama’s team took notice.

Bovard has routed his new site to the homepage of the National Rifle Association.

As LC Sir Crunchy says, “Bwahahahahahahhahahahahahaha”.

The endy part is that Obama is going after the guy. Of course.

I wonder, if the folks at iCann don’t let Obama thug them and the guy wins, will some Chicago thugs poison his dog or will they shoot it? (too wordy, but it was two links)

Via Say Uncle, we see that some guy took Biden’s advice with predictable results. He fired warning shots at armed intruders, he got arrested. At least he was smarter than Biden, he only shot inside his own house, Biden’s way makes it likely you’ll shoot an innocent person.

This is an RCOB moment. The black kid who was shot in Florida had gone to buy, as we all know from each and every news article, skittles and iced tea (such an innocent boy, just getting candy and tea)

Only it wasn’t ‘tea” it was watermelon cocktail, which, when mixed with skittles and cough syrup is a new concoction called “lean” that gives you a PCP like high.

This guy notices that Trayvon Martin’s facebook page talks about that particular concoction, but of course, our fine Minitrue betters were too busy trying pin a crime on the Hispanic guy with the caucasian name to do any journalism.

Not all that important, I just felt like rewarding the NY Post for getting the word “cannibal” in the headline. They live for that shit.

NY is really going to see exactly how far and fast they can push their subjects.  Bloomberg himself can’t ban 2 liters in stores or supermarkets so he wants all of NY to ban sodas of more than 16 ozs from everywhere.

Keep in mind we’re trying to save the lives of these kids, particularly kids…The state should do exactly the same thing in stores.”

Cuomo said something about how he’s maybe onboard.

Is there a mechanism for counties to secede from a state and do you have to be contiguous to be the same state? Cuz I can see a bunch of NY counties trying to join NH.

Obama’s partners for peace have been active lately.

The Taliban sent four suicide bombers to attack Afghan security services in the capital of Kabul and in the nearby provinces of Nangarhar and Logar today.

If you like War on (Some) Terror news, the Long War Journal is a place to check out.

Everybody has this link, but keep checking it out, the list of companies telling NY to fuck off keeps getting longer, Midway joined it. Good for them.

Forget where I saw this, but some guy wanted to have a romantic proposal of marriage. He went to great lengths but fucked up in one area, he went to Mexico. Result? He was arrested and hauled off with the ring ending up in the ocean and other indignities. It has a happy ending, but act II, scene I is pretty fucked up.

In, Hey! That’s Our Bit news, the Clinton News Network (CNN) is acting all upset that some Obama folks are going to work for MSNBC. High-fucking-larious.

A couple of “You fucking guys rock” deals for the big finish.

I’m sure I’ll be corrected on this, but a buddy of mine, who loves Sigs (thanks to firing my 2340) told me Sig has radically increased their production to get as many scary black rifles out as quickly as possible and also has a weirdly large muzzle break on the end of some of their rifles (I think like this one).

So my buddy was telling his buddy (They’re both engineers (EE) and two of the most meticulous and knowledgeable guys you’ll ever meet) that he hated the new muzzle breaks.
Hhis buddy said that they were built so that if you pay your tax stamp those are the baffles for your silencer, you just have to slide a sleeve on.

Fucking awesome, I so hope it’s true.

Now I love my 06 Mustang GT, I still sometimes just stare at it 7 years later, and I intend to be buried in it or pried out of it, but if I had a spare $70k floating around, I might be tempted by the newest Mustang convertible.

As we all know, Government Motors came out with their “throwback” Camaro and Chrysler (who’ve made shit since 1973) came out with their Challengers and Chargers and everybody made their cars with more HP than the Mustang.

So Mustang reintroduced the 5.0 with about 400hp and 380 ft-lb of torque, then GM and Chrysler upped theirs.

So Ford figured “up yours” and the new 2014 Ford Mustang GT Shelby convertible has 662 HP and 631 ft-lb of torque.
That’s fucking bad ass. I think it’s muscle-car-ese for “I got ya hemi right here“.

    2014 Ford Shelby: car-version of the song “A Boy Named Sue.”
    Just sayin’

    • veeshir says:

      So you’ve never heard of Carroll Shelby?

      He’s the guy whose cars all those fathers named their daughters after.

      Now I’ll admit, he’s the bad ass, automotive version of the boy named Sue.

      • DejahThoris says:

        Dude with a name like that totally had to be a bad-ass. Never heard of him, otherwise. I’m more of an off-road gal.
        See, I come here to learn!

    I always love this:
    “George Zimmerman, a white Hispanic neighborhood watch volunteer in Sanford, Florida”

    What the everloving fuck is a “white Hispanic”? Is there a “black Hispanic”? “Gray Hispanic”? Or is it because one of George Zimmerman’s parents was white? Does that make Obama a “white Black”?

  3. veeshir says:

    I always figured it was because his name was white.

    • DejahThoris says:

      You only qualify as a minority if you enrobe yourself in minority ideology. If Zimmerman had been beholden to the stereotype, then it would have never even made the back page daily crime reports. He was/is an upstanding citizen who behaved in the manner of an upstanding citizen: believing that he had a constitutionally-backed and legal right to defend himself and his neighborhood.
