GOVEROTRAGEOUS: The “civilian” Gooferment has more troops than the USMC!

British Exit Not a Done Deal
By Jason Stapleton –  Jun 24, 2016 673

*** begin quote ***

Markets are in an uproar today after the UK voted to leave the EU. But has anyone bothered to look at what happens next? I think a lot of people believe that a British separation from the EU is inevitable, even imminent but nothing could be further from the truth.

By my estimation, it’s going to take at least two and a half years for the UK to make it’s transition and that’s assuming there are no political shenanigans that come up. Considering that a mere 2% separated the winners from the losers, it would not be at all unlikely to see some MP’s step up to block the referendum from being implemented.

What you need to understand is that we are years away from any change coming to the trading relationship between the UK and EU, and a lot can happen between now and then.

From the EU discussion, we’ll move to guns where I’ll play some interesting comments from Charlie Rangel, who apparently believes he deserves to be protected by guns while you should be forced to fend for yourself.

*** end quote ***

Obviously, BREXIT, if not sabotaged by the effete elite, will take several years to unwind.

Hopefully, it will spur a bunch of mini —EXITs. 

I hope New Hampshire is one, but I think Texas needs to lead and be first. (Although, imho, North Dakota with the fracking oil and the only State Bank — the Bank of North Dakota — is the best prepared to EXIT since it doesn’t need the “services” of the Federal Reserve.)

ALSO

Jason excoriates Rangel with his snide laugh at the stupid “law abiding people”. (Made my blood boil!)

ALSO

Jason points out that the “civilian” Gooferment has more troops than the USMC! WTH!!!

Department of Education has SWAT teams? Why?

EPA, IRS, NOAA, FDA … … why?

Argh!

POLITICAL: Ann McLane Kuster maybe “listening”, but I’m unimpressed

Dear Mr. Reinke,

Thank you for reaching out to me with your views regarding Selective Service, more commonly known as the military draft.  Listening to my constituents is a fundamental part of my job as it helps me to best represent you and New Hampshire’s priorities in Congress.

The men and women who serve our country deserve our utmost respect and recognition, regardless of their gender.  Today, women are taking on more responsibilities in our Armed Forces than ever before, from assuming new combat roles to reaching new heights in military leadership.  I support recent reforms allowing women to serve in new military combat roles, because all Americans should share in the responsibility of protecting our freedom and preserving our way of life. 

As you may know, Selective Service was originally enacted in 1917 as a response to World War I.  It has existed in various forms since that time, with today’s version, enacted in 1980, requiring all males to register for potential military service in the case of an emergency.  An amendment to the FY 2017 National Defense Authorization Act(NDAA), approved during House Armed Services Committee markup, would also require women to register.  As your Representative, please know that I will keep your thoughtful views in mind if I have the opportunity to vote on legislation concerning the Selective Service. 

Thank you again for sharing your thoughts with me.  I strive to maintain an open dialogue with the people of New Hampshire about issues important to our district.  If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to contact my Concord office at (603) 226-1002 or my Washington, DC office at (202) 225-5206.  I also encourage you to sign up for my e-newsletter at http://Kuster.house.gov/contact/newsletter, visit my website at http://Kuster.house.gov, follow me on Twitter at @RepAnnieKuster, or check out my Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/CongresswomanAnnieKuster

 
Sincerely, 
 
Ann McLane Kuster
Member of Congress

Argh!

So, the question is how will she vote. Or push for vote at all.

“Selective Service” is an idea whose time has past! Like NATO! Or all the other big Gooferment programs.

Argh!

Never will be ever to get rid of any of these programs.

SURVIVAL: Misconceptions that will kill you in your TEO planning

Seven Common TEOTWAWKI Misconceptions, by Brian T.

*** begin quote ***

Misconception number four:  Roving criminal hordes will come from the urban environment to your rural home or Bug Out Location (BOL).  Nope, these people do not play chess or even checkers; they do not plan ahead much at all.  Criminals, with few exceptions are lazy.  And many are on drugs.  Yes, a few will flee at the very beginning if they have a specific refuge in mind, the uncle with the farm, but most will not leave their familiar comfortable environment.  Even if they have an operational vehicle capable of the trip it is likely to be low on fuel, particularly these days.  They will burn up what little fuel they have driving around their usual haunts, to the liquor and drug stores, then to the convenience or grocery store like they did before the event until their tank is empty.  Walking or biking to save fuel will never cross their mind. No gas means no travel for this group.  There will be rare exceptions.

*** and ***

In a crisis, do not plan on doing things you have never done and do not plan on other people’s behavior to change, neither one is very likely.

*** end quote ***

Interesting.

Reminds me of that story where the guy build a retreat, and unbuilt it, that was virtually undetectable.

Maybe all the planning and thinking about TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) is just foolishness. 

But it does make sense to plan for the bad things that can happen more frequently (i.e., storms, power outages, financial turmoil, political unrest).

Doing nothing / planning nothing just ensures failure.

Argh!

Untangling Pileup of Miscues in Giants’ Loss

Sometimes football can seem so simple: Throw the ball, catch the ball, kick the ball.

Sorry, it’s Eli’s and Couglin’s loss.

Either could have locked up the win.

Argh!

GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Case against Temple physics professor after making evidence error

America drops sale-of-secrets-to-China case against Temple physics professor after making embarrassing – and crucial – evidence error

  • Dr Xi Xiaoxing had been accused of sharing sensitive American-made technology with China
  • The FBI said he had sent details of a secret sophisticated device known as a ‘pocket heater’ to Chinese scientists
  • The federal agents claimed they had the blueprints for the heater that Dr Xi had passed on as a ‘spy’
  • It now turns out the blueprints weren’t for the pocket heater at all
  • All charges against Dr Xi have been dropped –  four months after he was led away in handcuffs, his career on the brink of ruin   
  • On Friday he lashed out at the FBI for putting his family through hell for no reason whatsoever, saying: This is not a joke. This is not a game’

An American scientist who was accused of being a spy for China has had all the charges against him dropped after the FBI admitted it had made a massive mistake in arresting him in the first place.

Federal agents had claimed they had evidence that Dr Xi Xiaoxing sent the secret blueprints for a sophisticated U.S. device called a ‘pocket heater’ to Chinese scientists.

But months after the physics professor was led away in handcuffs from Temple University, where he works, the FBI admitted the blueprints they found were not for the heater at all – but for a totally innocuous gadget.

On Friday night, Dr Xi, 57, said in a phone interview reported in the New York Times: ‘I don’t expect them to understand everything I do. But the fact that they don’t consult with experts and then charge me? Put my family through all this? Damage my reputation? They shouldn’t do this. This is not a joke. This is not a game.’ 

*** end quote ***

Maybe the agents have been listening to the Donald and his anti-Chinese rhetoric?

In actuality, the Gooferment is immoral, ineffective, and inefficient. And here’s an example.

Black Eye for the FBI.

Guess they have to go back to setting up fools for charges.

Argh!
