It's A Family Feud

Once again the Palestinians turn the heat up in Gaza.
GAZA (Reuters) - Israel killed four Palestinian militants and wounded half a dozen others as it pursued air raids in Gaza for a third day on Saturday, responding to increased rocket fire out of the territory, local medics said.

Militants in the Gaza Strip, ruled by the Islamist Hamas, continued striking Israel's south with rockets, wounding five Israelis at around daybreak, according to Israeli media reports.

Israeli forces killed a local Hamas commander in the southern Gaza town of Rafah bordering Egypt, as well as two of his bodyguards, in a targeted strike on a vehicle, medics said. Israel blamed the slain commander for a rocket strike on its port of Eilat launched from Egyptian Sinai some months ago.

Five militants were wounded in a second air raid in northern Gaza. Another air strike at daybreak killed a further militant.

Cross-border violence has surged since Hamas militants fired an anti-tank rocket at an Israeli school bus on Thursday, wounding two people including a teenager, who was listed in critical condition.

[...] Gaza militants have fired over 70 rockets and mortars into Israel since Thursday, damaging a house, police said. Israeli media said half a dozen people have been wounded.
And what's even better is that Hamas doesn't want the West to know what they're doing.
Hamas in Gaza: Minimal coverage of serious freedom of press violations

Scattered references in British media to allegations that Hamas has committed serious violations of freedom of press, including threatening to throw a Reuters journalist out of a window.
There is nothing new here. If it didn't happen today, it would happen next week. This conflict is a family feud that makes the Hatfields and the McCoys look like like two octogenarians fighting over the last box of Depends™ at Walmart.

It started about 4,000 years ago during the Age of the Patriarchs. Abraham's wife, Sarah, was barren and she urged Abraham to have a child by her Egyptian maid, Hagar. Under the culture and laws of the time (Code of Hammurabi) this was kosher. God sent an angel to speak to Hagar:
"You are now pregnant and you will give birth to a son. You shall name him Ishmael, for the LORD has heard of your misery. He will be a wild donkey of a man; his hand will be against everyone and everyone’s hand against him, and he will live in hostility toward all his brothers.” (Genesis 16:11-12 RSV).

Isaac, Sarah's only son by Abraham, was born thirteen years later and the mideast has never been the same. The only time they ever agreed on anything was where to bury Abraham when he died. From a wild ass of a man, Ishmael, we now have wild, crazy, murderous adherents to a moon cult. From Isaac, the Savior. Go figure.

Excuse me, can you direct me to the vomitorium?

While We're On The Subject Of Stones

It takes stones to say and do things that are unpopular. It takes ginormous stones to tackle issues that may even harm you financially or physically. Fortunately there always seems to be a few Americans who have the stones to do just that.

If we examine the occupations of the men who affixed their signatures to the Declaration of Independence, we find for the most part that they were successful businessmen. There were 25 lawyers, 15 merchants, 7 plantation owners, 3 physicians and a smattering of farmers, landowners and Ben Franklin who was in a class all by himself.
Their average age was 44.
The oldest - Ben Franklin at 70.
The youngest - Thomas Lynch Jr. at 26.

Some issues are viewed as a third rail; touch them and *zap* you're gone. Such was the subject of independence from Great Britain in 1776. Today it is the subject of Obama's long form birth certificate.

The liberal media inflicts severe punishment upon anyone who dares to broach the subject of Obama's place of birth. Obama has allegedly spent almost two million dollars in legal fees fighting any and all attempts to produce this document.

Anyone who spends this much money and effort to conceal something is definitely afraid of the consequences if it becomes available to the public. For the past two years the media has labeled people as "birthers" and "crazies" if they do question why this document has not been made public, particularly in view of similar disclosures made by other Presidential candidates who produced their birth certificates to quell any rumors of impropriety.

Until The Donald started making noise.

Now don't get all twitchy on me. I am not elevating Donald Trump to some exalted public savior position. All I'm saying is that the men who dared to sign a document endorsing treason (that's how the most powerful nation on the earth viewed it at the time) were successful businessmen who had a lot to lose. They spent the next five years running for their lives.Many of them lost their fortune, their families and even their lives because their signature was on the bottom of the most famous document in American history.

Today, we have another successful businessman who refuses to take the easy way out. He knows what he knows because he knows how to make and keep billions of dollars and thousands of people employed. He also knows when something stinks to high heaven and is not afraid to say so, even to the extent of hiring his own private investigators and sending them to Hawaii for a looksee at Obama's past.

From Mediaite:
I am saying I want to see the birth certificate. It’s very simple. I want to see the birth certificate. How come his own family doesn’t know which hospital he was born in? How come– forget about birth certificates. Let’s say there’s no birth certificate. How come in the hospital itself, okay? This is one of the…in the hospital itself, there’s no records of his birth. In other words, it doesn’t say how much they paid, where is the doctor, here’s your room bill.

He adds that his people in Hawaii “can’t believe what they’re finding.”
Is Trump running for President? I haven't the foggiest notion. Would I vote for him if he did? Same answer. But he has the stones to do the job, more so than many of the other candidates out there who are afraid to touch the third rail of modern politics.

Once Again Hamas Defends Gaza Against Israeli Aggression

Maybe Allah hates yellow or Mohammed was beaten up in the third grade because he was home schooled? In either event the Prophet's troglodytes have once again demonstrated that they are not worthy of oxygen much less statehood.

From the Jerusalem Post:
An anti-tank missile fired from the Gaza Strip struck a school bus in the Negev on Thursday, critically wounding a 16-year-old boy and setting off a fierce round of clashes between the IDF and Palestinian terrorists.

The missile, which was fired by Hamas, hit the bus moments after most of the children got off, while it was driving near Kibbutz Saad, about 2.5 km. from Gaza. Only two people were on the bus when it was hit – the driver, who was lightly injured, and the boy, who was en route to visit his grandmother. The bus driver is a friend of the family.

Immediately after the attack, Palestinians fired more than 45 mortar shells and Katyusha and Kassam rockets into Israel.

One of the Grad-model Katyusha rockets was intercepted by the Iron Dome counter-rocket defense system deployed south of Ashkelon, proving its capabilities in combat for the first time.

IDF officers said that the attack – the first time an anti-tank missile was fired deep into Israel, and, officers believe, deliberately targeting the school bus – “crossed all red lines” and that Hamas would pay dearly.

Now This Kid's Got Stones

From Weazel Zippers:
(INN) — Muslim student Amran Hussain, speaking on behalf of the European Union of Jewish Students, recently spoke out for Israel a session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, where he castigated the Council for anti-Israel bias.

“Why is Israel consistently and conspicuously singled out for condemnation on the grounds of human rights violations, yet the world turns a blind eye to the human rights situations in the Arab countries . . . or the Far East . . . or Africa?” he asked.

Hussain told the Council he came to the session “to remind you of the moral obligation we all have here today to protect the only country in the world whose very existence is constantly under attack.

“The world was very quick to condemn Israel for defending itself from unrelenting rocket and mortar attacks from Gaza. I ask you, what about the human rights of Israeli Jews, Israeli Muslims [and] Israeli Christians living constantly in fear of attacks from Hamas.”
How long do you give this kid before some mullah issues a fatwa demanding the removal of his head? I say a week, maybe two at the most.

The Cost Of Ungodliness

The Canada Free Press speaks about something which you won't find in the NY Times or many other publications for that matter, the spirit of antichrist. We're not talking about a foul, dark, loathsome winged creature that arises after midnight and preys upon the weak-minded. It is far more insidious than that. For one, the spirit of the antichrist is a denial of Christ's relationship with God the Father and man. Call it whatever you will for it has many names: Humanism, Progressivism, Communism or Socialism - wherever man is elevated above God and answers only to Man's authority, that is a manifestation of the antichrist.
Americans have abandoned their ancestral faith and practice, a subject affecting all persons, including the indifferent and non-religious. Therefore we can say a spirit of anti-Christ is unleashed. This is not to be confused with “The Beast” of Revelations whom many believe will come to establish an infernal kingdom on earth before the end of times. Instead, this general spirit opposes Bible teaching, contradicting the doctrines of Jesus and the Apostles, here illuminated by changing practices on marriage.
Forgive me if I cut to the chase. As we have abandoned the faith, as we have distanced ourselves from God, our behavior has taken a disasterous direction. We are returning to the days of Noah, before the Flood when men did whatever was right in their own eyes. And they were judged severely.

Today we live in an age of grace, but there are still a series of consequences that have accrued. Marriage has taken a heavy hit in the process and, despite liberal protestations, it torments our Nation. American families were built upon the foundation of a permanent relationship between a man and a woman - a marriage whereby God's longstanding command to reproduce could be accomplished in an environment conducive to proper child rearing.

It doesn't take a village, it takes a marriage.

Today, over seventy percent of all black children are born out of wedlock, fatherless. For Hispanics it is now fifty percent, for whites it is twenty-four percent. Research has indicated that these children will face a wide range of disadvantages and dangers.
•63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes.—[U. S. D.H.H.S. Bureau of the Census]

•90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes; 85% of all children that exhibit behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes.—[Center for Disease Control]

•80% of rapists motivated with displaced anger come from fatherless homes.—[Criminal Justice and Behavior, Vol. 14 p. 403-26]

•71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes.—[National Principals Association Report on the State of High Schools]

•70% of juveniles in state operated institutions come from fatherless homes.—[U.S. Dept. of Justice, Special Report, Sept., 1988]

•85% of all youths sitting in prisons grew up in a fatherless home. —[Fulton County Georgia Jail Populations and Texas Dept. of Corrections, 1992]

•40% of children in America do not live with their fathers.—[US News and World Report, February 27, 1995, p.39]
Don't go away, we're not done yet. Compared to children who are raised with both biological parents, children who are raised with a single mother are
"33 times more likely to be seriously abused (so that they will require medical attention); and 73 times more likely to be killed."
Source-[”Marriage: The Safest Place for Women and Children”, by Patrick F. Fagan and Kirk A. Johnson, Ph.D. Backgrounder #1535.]

And these are not all the costs. Whether you read the paper or online news media, look at the young people involved in shootings, narcotics trafficking, school disturbances, substance abuse and violent family attacks - for the most part they are the product of ungodly lifestyles. These are the people who have embraced the spirit of antichrist and celebrate the false supremacy of man. I speak as a retired cop. My twelve years on the road were mostly spent in poverty striken, high crime areas. I was in and out of these homes countless times and I now see the names of grandchildren of the people I arrested thirty-five years ago on arrest reports. The same family structure lacking two caring parents produce children with the same antisocial, violent behaviors. This is killing America.

Please Don't Shoot Me, I'm Not The Bartender

The US Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics (BJS), is a goldmine of information for the law enforcement researcher.
In 2009, approximately 572,000 nonfatal violent crimes (rape/sexual assault, robbery, and aggravated and simple assault) occurred against persons age 16 or older while they were at work or on duty, based on findings from the National Crime Victimization Survey (NCVS). This accounted for about 24% of nonfatal violence against employed persons age 16 or older. Nonfatal violence in the workplace was about 15% of all nonfatal violent crime against persons age 16 or older.
It also provides guidance on where not to get your ass kicked while working.

There is some good news, nonfatal workplace violence is down. Of course the BJS does not mention if this decline resulted from the fact that there are far fewer workplaces in the US now than there were 16 years ago.
  • From 2002 to 2009, the rate of nonfatal workplace violence has declined by 35%, following a 62% decline in the rate from 1993 to 2002.

  • Between 2005 and 2009, law enforcement officers, security guards, and bartenders had the highest rates of nonfatal workplace violence.

  • Among workplace homicides that occurred between 2005 and 2009, about 28% involved victims in sales and related occupations and about 17% involved victims in protective service occupations.
  • The following rates of workplace violence are per 1,000 employed persons age 16 or older. For all occupations, the average is 5 incidents of workplace violence per 1,000 employed persons.
    #1Bartender 79.9

    #2 Law Enforcement Officer 77.8

    #3 Security Guard 65.0
    Must be the booze. And for the occupations with the lowest rate of violence:
    #1 Preschool 0.9

    #2 College/university 1.9

    #3 Other/Unspecified 2.8
    Somehow I am not surprised that preschoolers inflict the least amount of horror. But give them time to get big enough to swing a chair.

    Definition: Dumb Ass

    From Sig's Real Life Dictionary:

    Dumb Ass - a loser who ultimately spends 15 years in State prison for a murder he didn't commit, is finally cleared and collects $2.6 million in damages; then gets arrested for possessing a brick of heroin and now may lose everything.

    Roy Brown is the name, dumb ass is the game. Your family helps you get out of stir. The suspect who really murdered the girl commits suicide once he realizes that he is about to be arrested. You're a multi-millionaire:
    Brown’s siblings call him “Kippy,” from his childhood nickname, “Skippy.” Kuczynski said she talked to him nearly every day by phone when he was in prison, brought him special food because of his liver disorder, and distributed nearly 30,000 fliers across the state seeking his release.

    After Brown got his money from the state, he rewarded his siblings for sticking by him by giving each $25,000 in cash, Kuczynski said.
    So far so good. In a rags to riches dream come true, you now have a beautiful home in a very nice section of Upstate New York, twenty cars and more property in Florida. Okay, so you went a little squirrely buying the stretch limo but we can understand those pent up shopping urges. So what say you just piss it all away, huh Sparky?

    Less than two years after his release, Brown shows up on the DEA radar and they take him down for dealing. There is finger pointing going on between Brown and the man arrested with him regarding who had the heroin in the car, but that is just a side show. This man doesn't need to find trouble, he generates it like refried beans generate wind.
    Trouble followed him after his release. Andrew Bishop, who lived with Brown in Syracuse after Brown’s release from prison, said in court papers that in 2008 Brown was regularly using heroin and the prescription painkiller OxyContin.

    Bishop claims in a lawsuit that Brown defrauded him out of $38,000 on a house deal. Bishop, who has a public-access television show in Auburn, had befriended Brown and was planning to produce a documentary about his ordeal, the lawsuit against Brown says. Bishop filed a complaint with the Cayuga County sheriff’s office in 2008 claiming Brown had threatened to kill him and county prosecutors.

    Susan Weichert claims in another lawsuit that Brown reneged on a signed contract to buy a home from her at 3195 Main St., Mexico. After he moved in, Brown failed to make payments, Weichert’s lawsuit said. She claims Brown owes her $250,000.

    Charlie Sheen's Turd of Truth

    From what has been reported, the entertainer formerly known as the Drug Crazed Star of Two and A Half Men Who Was Paid Two Million A Week For This Merda has bombed on his initial outing in Detroit. It wasn't pretty.

    As a dad, I can only imagine what Martin is going through.
