An exciting new avenue to abuse of authority and general repression, courtesy of our friends in Congress and the current administration......
A couple of insightful articles from that crusty scribe, Dave Workman, known in song and legend throughout the NorthWest - with wit so potent that a pistol is mere decoration...Dave inquires "Just what are those cops doing??" in regards to a local police shooting, and further examines both a local home invasion robbery that didn't go quite as planned, and of broader interest, the Obama adminstrations blocking of the re-importation of semi-automatic Garands from Korea. That they make a dandy deer gun is beyond argument....so what's the hold-up?
Then we have the state of the law in Wisconsin, with officers rushing up to an armed group peaceably having dinner to demand identification in order to prove they were not felons....and a somewhat misguided editorial from a local newspaper on the matter.
Obama declares Congress going GOP in November would result in "hand to hand combat" on Capitol Hill for the next two years. This would be a bad thing?
On a more cheerful note, libertarian and author L. Neil Smith has an online comic. Somehow, it just doesn't feel *right* though, darn it.
In an interesting tale of several occasions we almost self-nuked in one fashion or another, we discover that yes, even with really big boom-toys, folks are still fallible.
The boys at Mythbusters make a sacrifice - keeping Obama's mouth mostly shut and him from making trouble for several hours as he makes an appearance on the December 8th episode. Is it too much too hope he'll volunteer to stand in front of the Archimedes Death Ray to prove it's harmless?
Making yet another appearance in the Linky Post, the Obama Administration fights to the last breath to keep Don't Ask, Don't Tell alive. A judge issues a worldwide injunction barring enforcement of the policy in a case brought by the Log Cabin Republicans, giving the Obama Justice Department 60 days to appeal. Within two days, the Obamanauts (friends that they are to the LGBT Community) file an appeal to preserve the discriminatory policy. Ain't it great to have such friends?
And yeah, it's a cheap shot...but after Palin's excoriation, I'm not seeing a bunch of reasons not to take it.....for your reading pleasure...
And while we're at it, let us celebrate the famed tolerance of diversity in thought and deed exhibited by those on the left...
Pirates off Somalia are now deploying mothership(s?) which act as fueling and munitions vessels for their smaller and more aggressive brethren. Since world navies don't appear able to do anything about this...obviously it's time to deploy Stingray's Privateers!! We can but hope that Stingray sets sail heavily armed and with the crew singing as below:
