RANT: Victims are defenseless sheeples in a virtually gun free zone!

Surge in robberies on Capitol Hill alters residents’ routines, lifestyles
By Peter Hermann November 10 at 6:51 PM

“I saw a guy walking toward me,” Pitluck said. “He just passed me and said, ‘Hey,’ like a greeting. Then, two seconds later, he turned around to grab my phone.” Pitluck said it took a moment before she understood she was being robbed, so she didn’t immediately let go. He punched and scratched her upper chest and neck. She screamed.

When he got the phone, the man jumped into a waiting car. A neighbor shouted out the number on the temporary — and probably fake, police later told Pitluck — tags. “We’ve got to call the cops,” the woman yelled.

I would assert that it’s no coincidence that the “District of Corruption” has Chicgo like gun laws.

Make a few of these thugs room temperature and this will go out of fashion quickly.

From a technology perspective the carrier should be able to immediately track them and / or “brick” them, making them worthless.

Even if they are recycled, then the person turning it in should be arrest for “receiving stolen property”.

Maybe the phone case manufacturers can make them with dye packs.


The lady who was the victim was lucky she wasn’t raped or badly injured.

RANT: “Debates” are “barbara streisand”

Saturday, October 31, 2015

Luddite asked me if I watched the debate. Here’s my reply:

# – # – #

I don’t watch “debates” because I know all I need to know with a few questions:

  • (1) Where do you stand on guns? Prove it!

  • (2) Where do you stand on cutting the size of Gooferment — specifically? Prove it!

  • (3) Where do you stand on the “(pseudo) War on (some) Drugs”? Prove it! AND

  • (4) Where do you stand on a non-interventionist foreign policy? Prove it!

RANT: BHO44 is an interventionist and not anti-war

U.S. to deploy special forces to Syria in about-turn for Obama

*** begin quote ***

U.S. President Barack Obama plans to deploy dozens of special operations forces to northern Syria to advise opposition forces in their fight against Islamic State, a major shift and a step he has long resisted to avoid getting dragged into another war in the Middle East.

The number of special operations troops in Syria would be fewer than 50, said a senior administration official, speaking ahead of an announcement on Friday by the administration. One U.S. official said the number was likely to be in the range of 20 to 30 but could not provide details.

The decision by Obama, deeply averse to committing troops to unpopular wars in the Middle East, would mark the first sustained U.S. troop presence in Syria and raise the risk of American casualties, although U.S. officials stressed the forces were not meant to engage in front-line combat.

*** end quote ***

So much for the Nobel Peace Prize winner.

Where’s all the anti-war activists now?

We could have elected Ron Paul — the only true non-interventionist who ran for President in my memory. 

So how is that working out for you now?

Did BHO44 run on a peace platform or not?

Not News: UAW Considering Plan to Milk the Unemployment System If It Calls a GM Strike
By Tom Blumer | October 24, 2015 | 10:30 PM EDT

*** begin quote ***

The news coming out of Detroit about near-deadline negotiations between the United Auto Workers union and General Motors has been pretty quiet. As the Sunday 11:59 p.m. deadline approaches, the Associated Press only has a four-paragraph blurb indicating that the union wants to get a richer package than it just garnered in negotiations with Fiat Chrysler. A Reuters report goes into detail about GM’s cost structure still being higher than that seen at Toyota’s and Nissan’s U.S. plants by about 15 percent and 31 percent, respectively. The New York Times is only carrying reports from the wires.

One note of substance about the UAW’s strategy covered at Bloomberg News — surely known to others following the industry who are filing bland reports — is that it plans to milk the unemployment insurance system in the event of a protracted strike.

To be clear, such a strike would appear to be very unlikely, if for no other reason than the fact that Americans remember that the Obama administration bailed out GM at a considerable cost several years ago. The final fully-loaded cost involved was $26.5 billion — not the $11.2 billion touted by the press last year. It’s safe to say that quite a few people would not take kindly to the idea of the primary beneficiaries of that unprecedented largesse walking out on their jobs when so many others are still unemployed and under-employed over six years after the most recent recession’s official end.

(Additionally, the linked $26.5 billion analysis appears not to have picked up the effect of the government permitting GM to carry forward $16 billion in tax losses incurred by the “old GM” into the “new GM” — even though “a business that undergoes a change in ownership usually has to forfeit the old company’s net operating losses,” which certainly happened during the bailout. At the statutory federal income tax rate of 35 percent, that decision alone cost the U.S. treasury $5.6 billion.)

*** end quote ***


And the UAW isn’t happy?

Talk about Crony Capitalism.

Now they want to stick the taxpayer — via unemployment insurance — with the cost of their “strike”.

Guess no one remembers the current 18T+ national debt and the guesstimated 200T+ in unfunded liabilities that our posterity will have to deal with!

PBS Anchor: ‘Why Does It Matter’ Hillary Lied About a YouTube Video on Benghazi?
By Tim Graham | October 23, 2015 | 9:49 AM EDT

PBS NewsHour anchor Judy Woodruff came to bury the Benghazi committee on Thursday night’s program. “What difference does it make” seemed to be her Hillary-echoing mantra. Or in her case, it was “Why does it matter?” Lies? Coverups? Who cares about that?

# – # – # – # – # 

PBS is a propaganda outlet that the Federal Gooferment forces me to pay for. Argh!

# – # – # – # – # 

If it didn’t matter, then why did she do it?

Obviously, it mattered since it was 8 weeks before the election.

They lied, cheated, and stole.

Obama Bans Pork from Prisons, CAIR Praises Decision

By Greg Richter   |   Sunday, 11 Oct 2015 11:59 AM

*** begin quote ***

The federal Bureau of Prisons has banned pork products from being served in the 122 prisons it runs nationwide, The Washington Post reports. 

*** end quote ***

It’s supposed to be prison?

“Bad” food might discourage folks from coming back.

Oatmeal for fast; beans for lunch; and veggies for dinner. Very healthy.

Didn’t Sheriff Joe just serve baloney sandwiches?
