Happy New Year


Have a safe and happy New Year.

Enjoy the evening with friends and family for:

Transformation Complete

Eleven months ago we started the process when we had the porches enclosed and the exterior walls removed to extend our living space a bit, particularly in the kitchen & dining room area. We went back and forth with contractors, two of which screwed the pooch on us before we finally hit pay dirt with a woman contractor who can work most men into the ground. Here's a few "Before & After" shots.




Our Soldier Girl is being redeployed to Afghanistan in three weeks. She was up for Christmas and returned to Ft. Bragg last night. We had a going away party for her in the new digs. Almost thirty people in this:







It's Not About Guns, It's About Control

A great read from the AmericanThinker:
I carried a gun in New York City for more than a decade -- back when there were thousands of murders a year and the Bronx led the nation in killings. On at least four occasions, that gun saved my life, and in a couple of instances, the lives of people who were with me at the time.

For 13 years I had a New York City full carry permit.

For a number of years I concealed and carried a gun in my son's grammar school as well.

I don't think the world would be a better place without me, and it is indisputable that my Beretta 92FC is responsible for my presence today.

[...]The Bronx in the 1980s was like Beirut -- a dated reference, I know, but I am of a certain age. Thousands of murders a year, and the NYPD, the finest police force in the world, had been relegated by political considerations to being outgunned and undermanned. The only time you saw them was when they were either issuing you a ticket or drawing a chalk outline around your body.

Michael Bloomberg longs for those days.
Read the entire article. Mr. Gensert has an excellent point to make. In 1990 there were 2,262 homicides in NYC, in one Bronx precinct alone (the 48th) there were 137 murders. As of Sunday, December 23rd, there were 414 murders in all of NYC - 2012 is on track to be the lowest number of murders in 50 years. NYC has made dramatic progress is reducing murders, but their gun control policies did not play a role.

It's So Much More Than Just the Second Amendment


Twice, in 1974 and again in 2011 I have stood before a judge, raised my hand and taken a solemn oath before God and man that I will defend the Constitution of the State of New York and the Constitution of the United States to the best of my ability. This is an oath that usually precedes someone slapping a firearm into your sweaty paws and teaching you how to use it.

Both in my personal affairs and in my official capacities I have carried a variety of handguns. Over the course of my career, my respect for the Image of God, in which we are made, and my concept of God's Mercy (which has been extended in abundance to me) have stayed my hand from taking a human life. Fortunately there were only a few occasions where this resolve was severely tested.

I enjoy hunting and target shooting. I have developed skills peculiar to my profession that I wish to maintain.

Now, after a foreseeable outrage in Connecticut that could have been prevented if the State of Connecticut had not engaged in a politically correct exercise regarding the custody of potentially dangerous mentally ill persons, suddenly I and so many others like me are a threat because we possess various types of firearms.

We have broken no laws and pose no threat except in the minds of the self-righteous elitists who actually hire us to protect them; yet millions of Americans are demonized for wishing to provide for themselves the same protections the elites enjoy through the contracted service of others.

If it were not so ridiculous it would be funny.

The Second Amendment is one of the most vigorously defended rights that we have. If this one goes, what will eventually become of the others?

Our system of government is unique in that our founding documents claim that our rights are inherent, bestowed upon us by our Creator and that government exists to guarantee the exercise of those rights. Once government decides that those rights are no longer inherent, that they may be exercised only at the discretion of those in power, then those rights can be dissolved at the stroke of a pen.

As a Christian, I am conflicted: I struggle with the notion of obedience to those who govern us when the government is immoral. Did early Christians rail against the Roman Emperor? No, they simply refused to worship him as a god and that was deemed sufficient cause for their execution.

We are not at that the point in America ... yet. I am reminded of Jamie Foxx's recent reference to Obama as "Lord and Savior" and while this does not amuse me, I take it for what it's worth as the comment erupted from the lips of a fool. What makes my skin crawl is that he got a standing ovation from the audience. Remember the Romans? They were forced to worship the titular head of government. The rights of a Roman citizen, as the Apostle Paul himself laid claim to, ended at the Emperor.

Do not persuade yourself that we are not in the end times. Scripture is very clear as to the universal worship of the Anti-Christ, the Beast, as god. The entire world will be deceived but for the select few who refuse his Mark.

I perceive Foxx's reference to Obama as Lord as a harbinger. The Soul Train audience ate it up and there was little reaction, or none at all, from the general public. Thirty years ago this would not have been the case. Perhaps Satan is just testing the waters; he must feel a lot more secure in presenting his agenda to America,

Bad Ass Doesn't Begin To Describe Him


I just read a dissertation regarding the recently deceased Senator Daniel Inouye. This was one guy I wouldn't want to piss off. If I was a German WWII veteran, I'd want to put a few dozen rounds into Inouye's coffin just to make sure he was dead. The reason for this being that the occupant of said coffin is
[...]a face-crushing ass-kicker named Daniel K. Inouye, and his story is so over-the-top insane that if you saw it in a movie you'd think the screenwriter was totally full of shit.
While visiting scenic Italy in 1944, Senator Inouye took out several German heavy machine gun nests while in the process of getting half blown apart himself. He lost his right arm in this action and probably should have been killed if he weren't such a bad ass.

The story is here. Senator Inouye was the first Japanese-American to become a US Senator. And the fact that a Japanese-American became the senator of a state (then a territory) that only 21 years prior had been bombed by the Japanese is another story in itself.

Senator Daniel K. Inouye, we salute you.

Tiny Asian Zippers


What does it take to buy a jacket that has a nice big honking zipper in it? Every coat I got has these little stinking zippers that you need a microscope to close! My hands are not huge! The last time I had a nice manly zipper on a garment had to be fifteen, twenty years ago. Every thing since then has these itty-bitty tweezer devices hanging off the front of them. A full grown American can barely see the dang things. Made in China by ten year old slaves for ten year old fingers.

It's the end of the world.
I google "tiny zippers" and I get this clown.

England - The Most Violent, Gun Free Nation In Europe


"I don't need no stinking gun!"

Hate to say "We told ya so," but the Brits' self-inflicted predicament was entirely foreseeable. It is a shame that so many people are suffering from the actions of deluded politicians who have turned a nation into a game preserve for criminal predators.
From the UK Daily Mail:
Britain's violent crime record is worse than any other country in the European union, it has been revealed.

Official crime figures show the UK also has a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and even South Africa - widely considered one of the world's most dangerous countries.

The figures comes on the day new Home Secretary Alan Johnson makes his first major speech on crime, promising to be tough on loutish behaviour.

The Tories said Labour had presided over a decade of spiralling violence.

In the decade following the party's election in 1997, the number of recorded violent attacks soared by 77 per cent to 1.158 million - or more than two every minute.

The figures, compiled from reports released by the European Commission and United Nations, also show:

The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.

It has a higher homicide rate than most of our western European neighbours, including France, Germany, Italy and Spain.

The UK has the fifth highest robbery rate in the EU.

It has the fourth highest burglary rate and the highest absolute number of burglaries in the EU, with double the number of offences than recorded in Germany and France.

But it is the naming of Britain as the most violent country in the EU that is most shocking. The analysis is based on the number of crimes per 100,000 residents.

In the UK, there are 2,034 offences per 100,000 people, way ahead of second-placed Austria with a rate of 1,677.
After the murderous rampage in Connecticut, watch for the same nonsense here.

And by the way, the 2011 violent crime rate in the US was 386 offenses per 100,000. The UK violent crime rate is over five times higher that that of the United State. And just to be fair, I tossed in 2.2 million American burglaries as the Brits seem to count this as a violent crime. Even so, our crime rate was still half the Brits (1,088 per 100,000).

How's that gun ban thing working out for ya?

I Couldn't say It More Eloquently



But lets face it, the socialists are coming against us from many directions: financially, morally - the list goes on and on as every facet of traditional American life has been subjected to a relentless onslaught.

And where did this attack first begin? Against biblical principles.

American's longest and strongest suite, the family unit, is already in ruins. This had to be the first target as the family unit is where biblical teaching really occurs. The attack gained momentum under Lyndon B. Johnson's administration. It was a dagger coated with honey - the War On Poverty was really a war on American families, especially black families. Get fathers out of the picture; who needs a dad when the government is there to provide money? And lets make divorce as easy as possible. The institution of marriage was ordained for one reason, to provide a loving environment for children. That has all but disappeared in our nation's urban black communities where 75% of children are born out of wedlock and black women are nearly three times more likely than whites to have an abortion.
Malachi 2:14- You ask, - “Why?” It is because the Lord is the witness between you and the wife of your youth. You have been unfaithful to her, though she is your partner, the wife of your marriage covenant. Has not the one God made you? You belong to him in body and spirit. And what does the one God seek? Godly offspring. So be on your guard, and do not be unfaithful to the wife of your youth. “The man who hates and divorces his wife,” says the Lord, the God of Israel, “does violence to the one he should protect,” says the Lord Almighty.
Our educational system, once the envy of the world, is but a shallow mockery of its former self. We have entire generations who do not know our nation's history but can give you a complete rundown on what celebrity bimbo is screwing what useless blockhead.
Hosea 4:6 - "For lack of knowledge my people perish."
America was once regarded as a society of prudes because of our aversion to promiscuity - no more; we are just as morally depraved as much of the world.
1 Corinthians 6:9–10 - "Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
The assault on the Second Amendment is just the finishing touch, the coup de grace so to speak for those of us too stubborn to surrender to evil.

The Beginning Of The Collapse


The result of decades of failed liberal pubic policy is coming to fruition as basic public safety services are starting to crumble in some American cities.
From the Daily Caller:
Bankrupt Calif. town’s city attorney warns of public safety cuts: ‘Lock your doors and load your guns’

San Bernardino is so bankrupt that the city’s attorney is advising residents to “lock your doors and load your guns,” in the face of budgetary cuts that have downsized the police force by 80 officers.

City Attorney Jim Penman made his comments to about 150 residents at a council meeting assembled to address the uptick in crime, including the recent murder of an elderly woman. Since 2011, the California city has seen a 50 percent increase in murders.

“Let’s be honest, we don’t have enough police officers. We have too many criminals living in this city,” Penman told KCBS-TV. “We have had 45 murders this year. That’s far too high for a city of this size.”

Councilwoman Wendy McCommack, the organizer of the meeting, added, “You could tell the swell of frustration was coming over a lot of folks. They did not feel like they could get an officer out as quickly to some of the quality-of-life issues that they were dealing with as they would have preferred.”

Under fire for the blunt statement, the city attorney of 25 years didn’t back down. “You should say what you mean and mean what you say,” Penman insisted.

“I’m not advocating that people go out, who don’t have any training, and buy firearms. I certainly strongly caution anyone who has children at home not to have a loaded gun in the house,” said Penman.
As a child in the early fifty's I lived in San Bernadino.

I Took A Breather

Sorry friends, I've been gone a while.

The kitchen/dining room project has taken much of my time and energy.

Our Thanksgiving celebration went well thanks be to God. The floor was completed just the day before . It is looking great - all I need to do is the baseboards and have the tile installed above the counter tops.

To tell the truth, that's not what kept me from the keyboard.
I am trying to gain a new perspective on the travesty that has once again been inflicted upon our nation. Election Day was a great disappointment, no doubt about it, and I would be untruthful if I said that it did not affect me deeply. I really believed that there was no way that Obama could win.

I seriously needed to take a breather, a time to clear my head and look at things from God's POV.

At the time of Jesus' death, the nation of Israel was a Roman province. When Jesus was crucified, Tiberius was Emperor. When Paul wrote the letter to the Romans, Nero was Emperor. I thought that when comparing Nero to Obama, there are a few startling similarities, particularly the homosexual behavior. Nonetheless, neither man came under direct condemnation of Jesus or His Apostles.

Jesus never spoke a word regarding Roman governance. His message of hope and salvation was to the Jews, not the Romans. Yes, I know His gospel applies to all of us and rightfully so for it reveals God's nature and His love for mankind. But it was to the Jews first and the Gentiles second. In Mark 12:13-17 Jesus told us to comply with civil authority and pay our taxes. In Romans 13:1-7 the Apostle Paul tells us that God establishes earthly authority and that we are to submit to it.

Of course it is not as simple as all that. We are to obey God's commandments over the laws of men - many Christians paid the price for that over the centuries and they still do today in astounding numbers all over the world. But how does that apply to me today?

It is a matter of focus. I cannot allow politics or political considerations to control me or exert undue influence. They are but temporary distractions in a life that I should be preparing for eternity in concert with my family and friends.

If we are to make a difference, I believe our focus as Christians should be on personal evangelism. If you want to change the direction of a country, you must first change the direction of its people. There is no greater change you can effect in a person's life than leading them to salvation.  But, and it is a fearsome consequence, as our nation abandons Christianity we must prepare ourselves for a satanic, hateful campaign against us that will be far worse than what we have ever experienced.  The special light that was America is dimming; America is being held accountable by God just as every other nation.

Something Stinks



There is a great deal of concern that the number of voters particiating in yesterday's election has decreased significantly over 2008 and 2004 levels. Either the electorate was real turned off or there has been a level of voter fraud on a national scale that defies description. Which brings me to the next point:

If you are going to lie, lie big.
If you are going to steal, steal big.
If you are going to cheat, cheat big.

Everyone will believe that there is some voter fraud. But how many people will believe that the entire election process was cooked, that the outcome was never in doubt, that the fix was always in? No sense messing with just a few cities, go for broke, no one will believe it.

IMHO, with the new electronic voting machines such fraud is not only possible on a national scale but easier than ever. Forget about the feds looking in to this. As far as I'm concerned, the Republicans are just as crooked as the Democrats.

Now is the time to put pressure on the AG's from the red states to investigate. I'd say impound the machines but some scripts can be written to delete themselves after execution. This whole thing simply reeks of corruption.

Vote And Wait

I voted early this morning on my way to work. They had those new electronic voting machines which I am sure have been compromised in many cities across America.

I'm not turning on the TV or radio. I don't want to know squat until it's over. I'll work on the kitchen and fix the floor in the dining room but I refuse to think about the election - it's all in God's very capable hands.

Obama Gets The "Slap Your Willy Silly" Endorsement!


It's just like the old Westerns ... the hostiles have surrounded the wagon train, Indians are war whooping, women are screaming, children are crying and the brave menfolk are dying. Then, off far in the distance, you spy a fast moving column of dust. Suddenly a faint bugle call becomes louder and more distinct, dust caked blue uniforms come into view. The cavalry has arrived !We are saved! All is well!

So, you thought perhaps Romney had Obama on the ropes; you thought all was lost and the Mormons will turn the DNC headquarters into the CIA Annex in Benghazi and make Debbie Wasserman-Schultz get her hair straightened.

Suddenly you hear a maniacal laugh far in the distance. A red bicycle comes into view ridden by a shrieking man-child trailing a cloud of movie theater restraining orders. One times creen sensation and masturbatory wonder Paul Reubens has arrived in the nick of time to rescue the faltering fortunes of President Obama!


From Breitbart:
Pee Wee Herman, the alter ego of actor Paul Reubens, has endorsed President Barack Obama in a typically colorful column over at The Huffington Post.

For me, this election is like the choice between store-bought ice cream (maybe even diet Ice Milk), and mouth-watering, homemade, unbelievably delicious frozen custard. How did I arrive at this conclusion? This week President Obama was working hard alongside Governor Bruce Springsteen of New Jersey (boy, he sure has gained some weight) to help the people most in need.
I would not eat anything this man touched.
It struck me that the choice I'll be making Tuesday is like going for store-bought ice cream when it's obvious what you really need is homemade frozen custard. President Obama is like the delicious frozen custard you'd get at Kohr's. President Obama has the 1.4 percent egg yolk solids needed to run this country.
At first I thought that the dems want this pervert to slink back into whatever hole he crawled out of. Then I realized, this is their kind of guy. A liberal poof licking Obama ice cream. What flavor you ask? Why of course it's Rocky Road.

Down To The Wire




I don't want to answer the phone until after Tuesday. Every idiot in the world who wants public office also wants to tell me about it and to cry about voting for him or her come the 6th. And with the answering function playing aloud while it records their whining you are forced to listen to their claptrap anyway.

Almost makes you wish for a good, old fashioned monarchy ala King George III. No election campaigns, just the divine right of kings in action and in your face.



Then again, George looks like a rip-roaring asshat and he did send British and German troops here to raise hell.




But, then again, Prince Willy's wife would make a really hawt Queen and she likes to sun bathe in the all together.
.....

I'm so conflicted.

Oh well, I guess we can just put up with the idiots every four years.

Jersey Score

Memo To WH Staff: Get Me A Bigger Arm

Governor Christie and President Obama use the drowning of New Jersey as an opportunity to get real chummy.

From the Examiner:
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie heaped praise on President Obama following the arrival of Hurricane Sandy.

Christie said Wednesday with the President by his side, “We spent a significant afternoon together surveying the damage up and down the New Jersey coastline; we were on Marine One together to be able to show the President that personally. I had an opportunity to see it, and we had an opportunity to discuss it at length. And then, going over to the shelter here, being able to meet with folks to have them see the President and his concern, and the concern that all of us have for making sure that things get back to normal as quickly as possible.”

He added, “He has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit.
Well there Gov. Pop Tart, it's a good thing your ass wasn't being shot at or sodomized when you called Obama for help.

Make Your Voices Heard

The lame stream media has to get slapped around before they will respond to America's need for unbiased, fair news reporting. The Benghazi murders and the subsequent cover up by the Obama administration makes Watergate look like a fraternity prank.

Obama has access to the most sophisticated weapons and surveillance systems on the face of the planet and did nothing to save the lives of four Americans. Less than 20 minutes after the attack started the State Dept. knew what was going on.  A C-130 Spectre gunship and drones were available to drive the attackers off, but this assistance was refused. Just before he was killed,Woods was painting an enemy mortar team with a laser target designator and was heard yelling for help, for someone to hit the mortar with a bomb or rocket. Why was he identifying a target if he was not expecting assistance?

From The Ulsterman:
If you are increasingly upset over the Mainstream Media’s refusal to honestly cover the Benghazi Massacre and cover-up in order to insulate Barack Obama and his failed administration from rightful blame, for the deaths of four Americans, I urge you now to let your feelings be known by those who control the networks. This process can begin today with your collective emails and phone calls specifically to COMCAST and NBC News.

SEAL's - Faithful Unto Death

A wonderful tribute to two incredibly brave men, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty.
From Scott On Cape Cod:

About the two Navy SEAL’s killed in Libya:

Quite an astounding tribute to the courage and bravery of the two former Navy SEAL’s that went to the aid of Ambassador Stevens and Embassy staff. Courageous!

Recently I was teaching a class in my church on the biblical character, Joshua. You remember him – he’s the one who took over for Moses to lead the Israelites into the Promised Land. God made several promises to Joshua in the opening verses of this book of the Bible named after him. Three times God instructs Joshua to “be strong and courageous.” In fact, one of those times God instructed him to be “very courageous.” The road ahead was a tough one and Joshua would need to be up to the task.

The news has been full of the attacks on our embassies throughout the Muslim world, and in particular, the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi , Libya . However, apart from the shameful amount of disinformation willingly distributed by the Main Stream Media and the current administration, there’s a little known story of incredible bravery, heroics, and courage that should be the top story of every news agency across the fruited plain.

So what actually happened at the U.S. embassy in Libya ? We are learning more about this every day. Ambassador Stevens and Foreign Service officer Sean Smith, along with administrative staff, were working out of temporary quarters due to the fact that in the spring of 2011 during the so-called Arab Spring, the United States cut ties with then president Moammar Gadhafi. Our embassy was looted and ransacked, causing it to be unusable. It is still in a state of disrepair. Security for embassies and their personnel is to be provided by the host nation. Since Libya has gone through a civil war of sorts in the past 18 months, the current government is very unstable, and therefore, unreliable

A well-organized attack by radical Muslims was planned specifically targeting the temporary U.S. embassy building. The Libyan security force that was in place to protect our people deserted their post, or joined the attacking force. Either way, our people were in a real fix. And it should be noted that Ambassador Stevens had mentioned on more than one occasion to Secretary of State, “Hillary Clinton”, that he was quite concerned for his personal safety and the welfare of his people. It is thought that Ambassador Stevens was on a “hit list.”

A short distance from the American compound, two Americans were sleeping. They were in Libya as independent contractors working an assignment totally unrelated to our embassy. They also happened to be former Navy SEALs. When they heard the noise coming from the attack on our embassy, as you would expect from highly trained warriors, they ran to the fight. Apparently, they had no weapons, but seeing the Libyan guards dropping their guns in their haste in fleeing the scene, Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty snatched up several of these discarded weapons and prepared to defend the American compound.

Not knowing exactly what was taking place, the two SEALs set up a defensive perimeter. Unfortunately Ambassador Stevens was already gravely injured, and Foreign Service officer, Sean Smith, was dead. However, due to their quick action and suppressive fire, twenty administrative personnel in the embassy were able to escape to safety. Eventually, these two courageous men were overwhelmed by the sheer numbers brought against them, an enemy force numbering between 100 to 200 attackers which came in two waves. But the stunning part of the story is that Tyrone Woods and Glen Doherty killed 60 of the attacking force. Once the compound was overrun, the attackers were incensed to discover that just two men had inflicted so much death and destruction.

As it became apparent to these selfless heroes, they were definitely going to lose their lives unless some reinforcements showed up in a hurry. As we know now, that was not to be. I’m fairly certain they knew they were going to die in this gun fight, but not before they took a whole lot of bad guys with them!

Consider these tenets of the Navy SEAL Code: 1) Loyalty to Country, Team and Teammate, 2) Serve with Honor and Integrity On and Off the Battlefield, 3) Ready to Lead, Ready to Follow, Never Quit, 4) Take responsibility for your actions and the actions of your teammates, 5) Excel as Warriors through Discipline and Innovation, 6) Train for War, Fight to Win, Defeat our Nation’s Enemies, and 7) Earn your Trident every day ( http://www.navyseals.com/seal-code-warrior-creed).

Thank you, Tyrone and Glen. To the very last breath, you both lived up to the SEAL Code. You served all of us well. You were courageous in the face of certain death.

And Tyrone, even though you never got to hold your newborn son, he will grow up knowing the character and quality of his father, a man among men who sacrificed himself defending others. God bless America !

God Bless The Marines!

Ten. More. Days.

Little Obama
Wasn’t loved by his momma.
So she dumped him with Grandma instead,
When he was elected
No one ever suspected
How much this messed up his head.

He’s a fiscal disaster
An incompetent master
Everything he touches turns to shit.
All we get is fertilizer
From a community organizer
We’d been better off electing a tick.

Our President’s a rookie
The First Lady’s a Wookie
2008 must have been some kind of glitch.
But don’t you all fret now

But We Know Where The Absentee Ballots Aren't Going


A plane crash has possibly destroyed thousands of absentee ballots headed to our troops overseas.
Federal officials say that absentee ballots being sent to U.S. military serving in Afghanistan may have been burned in a plane crash.

A top official in the Federal Voting Assistance Program this week notified election officials across the nation that a transport plane crashed at Shindad Air Base on Oct. 19.

The crash resulted in the destruction of 4,700 pounds of mail inbound to troops serving in the area.

Federal officials in their email to state election offices said they did not know if any ballots were destroyed. They also said the lost mail was limited to one zip code.
Of course the very next question is, "Which zip code?" Bet it's one from a hotly contested swing state.

Northern Virginia anyone? Michigan? Colorado?

Wonder Where It's All Going Just Before Election Day


Driving home from picking up my new kitchen floor tile I took this picture of a train with about a half mile of military equipment attached to it. I drove by it twice and could not see the end of it from the overpass.

It was parked for at least 40 minutes on a rail right next to the NYS Fair Grounds. It was headed east. I have lived here for over thirty years and have never seen anything like it.

Call It What It Is - Rape

There is so much that is sad and wrong with this story.
Tormented 15-year-old Felicia Garcia jumped to death in front of train after football players bragged about sexual conquests, say police

The tormented Staten Island teenager who killed herself by jumping in the path of a train was bullied to death by classmates after she had sex with four football players, police sources said Thursday.

Felicia Garcia, a 15-year-old freshman at Tottenville High School, was driven to her death after two 17-year-old classmates blabbed about the encounters.

“Kids are saying she had sex with some guys from the football team at a party after the game,” said a friend of the doomed girl who asked not to be identified. “Later on they wouldn't leave her alone about it. They just kept bullying her and bullying her.”

After the weekend, the bullying sent Felicia into the final tailspin in a long-troubled life.
First off, there is the popular misconception that there is no downside to unbridled, "free range" consensual sex. That is the lie foisted upon our culture by liberals and their sexual revolution. Sex is not love and love is not sex.

So many of my generation had to learn this. Poor Felicia, already burdened by a dysfunctional family, learned this the hard way and it broke her.
“I cant, im done, I give up,” she tweeted Monday.

School officials heard of the bullying and set up a mediation session Wednesday with a counselor and one of the 17-year-old boys. The teenager denied harassing the girl, the sources said.

Leaving the office, Felicia later ran into the other 17-year-old who had been making her life miserable — and they exchanged words, the sources said.

Police did not say what was said. But it was enough to send Felicia marching off to the Huguenot station of the Staten Island Railroad, where she killed herself in front of horrified classmates.

Senior Alissa Compitello said she saw Felicia on the way to the train station and the girl told her that she had the mediation because of the bullying.

“She was smiling though, like everything was going to be okay,” said Compitello, 17.

But a quick look at Felicia’s Instagram account would have revealed the depths of her despair. On it, she placed a picture of herself with the word “Depressed” covering her eyes.

“Just because someone is smiling doesn’t make them happy,” read her caption.
These young men (I don't like to call them men, they are mean spirited child rapists) and need to be arrested and charged under Section 135.25 of the NYS Penal Law, Rape 3rd. By law, a 15 year old child is not capable of granting consent to sexual intercourse. This is why we have laws protecting children.

Felicia was preyed upon by these rapists and they must pay the price.

But of course the idiots in the school system go off on an anti-bullying frenzy. This is an instance of rape, endangering the welfare of a child and harassment. There are existing laws passed by the NYS Legislature structured to deal with this. What is needed are school administrators who will deal realistically with problems, not engage in a knee jerk reaction offering agenda-driven liberal pablum.

Of Lying Lips And DingDongs


Enough! Enough already!

We can't take anymore lies, so sew his lips shut. And while we got the needle and thread out, sew Hillary's and Jay Carney's lying tongues together.

We're long past impeachment. Arrest all these lying sonsofbitches.

Perp walk Obama's skinny ass right down to Congress. Jack those cuffs up behind his back and teach him how to do the chicken all the way down the Mall.

He's got more than enough spare change to afford his own attorney and to keep Mooshell in her $35 million Kailua, Hawaii, mansion stocked with Dingdongs - no assigned counsel for you bucko.

From Reuters:
Officials at the White House and State Department were advised two hours after attackers assaulted the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi, Libya, on September 11 that an Islamic militant group had claimed credit for the attack, official emails show.

The emails, obtained by Reuters from government sources not connected with U.S. spy agencies or the State Department and who requested anonymity, specifically mention that the Libyan group called Ansar al-Sharia had asserted responsibility for the attacks.

The brief emails also show how U.S. diplomats described the attack, even as it was still under way, to Washington.
They knew. All of them. All the time.

They knew from the get go.

They knew. They knew. They knew. They knew and they still lied to us.

But we knew that.
The records obtained by Reuters consist of three emails dispatched by the State Department's Operations Center to multiple government offices, including addresses at the White House, Pentagon, intelligence community and FBI, on the afternoon of September 11.

The first email, timed at 4:05 p.m. Washington time - or 10:05 p.m. Benghazi time, 20-30 minutes after the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission allegedly began - carried the subject line "U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi Under Attack" and the notation "SBU", meaning "Sensitive But Unclassified."

The text said the State Department's regional security office had reported that the diplomatic mission in Benghazi was "under attack. Embassy in Tripoli reports approximately 20 armed people fired shots; explosions have been heard as well."

The message continued: "Ambassador Stevens, who is currently in Benghazi, and four ... personnel are in the compound safe haven. The 17th of February militia is providing security support."

A second email, headed "Update 1: U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi" and timed 4:54 p.m. Washington time, said that the Embassy in Tripoli had reported that "the firing at the U.S. Diplomatic Mission in Benghazi had stopped and the compound had been cleared." It said a "response team" was at the site attempting to locate missing personnel.

A third email, also marked SBU and sent at 6:07 p.m. Washington time, carried the subject line: "Update 2: Ansar al-Sharia Claims Responsibility for Benghazi Attack."
As far as Reuters playing the role of the good citizen journalist by releasing this story - how long before the last debate did they know this?

Irony - It's What's For Dinner

A lesson in irony

The Food Stamp Program, administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, is proud to be distributing the greatest amount of free meals and food stamps ever.

Meanwhile, the National Park Service, administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, asks us to "Please Do Not Feed the Animals."

Their stated reason for the policy is because the animals will grow dependent on handouts and will not learn to take care of themselves.

This ends today's lesson.

We're Good For Now



All it took was a cortisone shot and a strong anti-inflammatory prescription and we're good to go for a while. My visit to the bone doc yesterday went well.

About thirty years ago I arrested some drunk for punching out his girlfriend. There were no further incidents on the way back to the station but as we walked into the booking area, he suddenly stopped and drove his cowboy boot heel into my right knee (hyper-extending it backwards as I later found out). I had an interesting floor level conversation with that young man and a full canister of Mace. It's amazing how much of that crap you can have sprayed up your nose and down your throat and not die. My concomitant trip to the hospital ER to have my knee x-rayed did not reveal the soft tissue damage. MRI's didn't exist back then.

I am rather bow-legged and this also puts pressure on the interior side of my knees. Over the decades there were other injuries which have also given me problems. And now once again I am limping pathetically like Obama's Presidential campaign.

So yesterday the bad news is that after two arthroscopic procedures in the last twenty years I am just about out of cartilage. As the above x-ray suggests, There is little to no cartilage left on one side, bone spurs on both sides and the femur (the top of the knee joint) is displaced to one side. And the patella (knee cap) also has spurs.That's pretty representative of my right knee's condition.


The good news is that the joint is stable, strong and the connective tissue is good. A knee replacement is still in the picture, but not right now. I went down the stairs this morning without pain for the first time in over six months. And deer season starts on November 17th.

Now I gotta ask myself, "Why did I wait so long?"
Hopefully this will last a while, if it gets bad again - and it will - we'll just go from there.

Just A Quiet Concession Dinner For Two

Obama's Election Night Suite at McCormick Place

Apparently after the elections, Obama, Michelle and Reggie's kids are planning a permanent vacation at their TARP sponsored, banker-supported Hawaiian get-a-away. The reasoning for this is partly due to the venue selected by the DNC where the Obama's will spend Election night. From Hill Buzz:
[...]if Democrats really thought Barack Obama was going to be reelected, then they would have planned a massive rally in Grant Park again; the fact this is not happening is proof that, despite what you hear coming out of the Ministry of Truth that is the national media, the Democrats really do not expect Obama to win this election. Campaign operatives in Chicago are, thus, making appropriate preparations for his imminent defeat.

Instead of Grant Park, Obama’s apparently going to have his election night event at McCormick Place…the convention center here in Chicago.

[...]Despite being within sight of the Museum Campus and Soldier Field, McCormick Place is a fortress-like island surrounded on most sides by freeways or railroad tracks (with the lake on the other side). This is where the G-8 summit was held, so the dignitaries could be isolated and kept as far away from the public as possible in downtown Chicago. Because the only realistic way of reaching McCormick Place is by taxi (or car, if people drive themselves) this is clearly not a place Obama would be holding an election night event if he really thought he was going to win the election. How on Earth would his throngs of supporters be able to reach him if he won and the event was held here of all places?

McCormick Place is not a spot to hold a victory rally, folks…but it is the ideal spot to give a concession speech.

JK, JK - just kidding, this is McCormick Place.










BWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
No, this is the retirement community reserved for Obama and Mooshell.

THIS is McCormick Place.

Erection Theft



Come on now. This is what they offer for a moderator in tonight's Presidential debate?

Ole Candy's gonna show up in a t-shirt with a pack of Marlboro's rolled up in the sleeve.
How about something a little easier on the eyes. Like...



In The Belly


The notion that America needs a good spanking from God keeps me sleepless at times. God is not mocked. His laws are immutable and inescapable. Just as the physical laws of our universe are not violated without risk, the moral boundaries that God has established have their own penalties if transgressed.

We are seeing those laws and penalties in action. America has stopped being a moral agent in this world and has become simply another immoral actor. Instead of a million bloggers recapturing the role of Paul Revere, perhaps we need a million Jonahs.

The Redcoats/Communists/Socialists/Atheists are not the problem. We as a nation are the problem.

Our Strength was never really in guns and ships. Pray for revival before we end up in the whale's belly.

The Book of Jonah
.

Jonah's Prayer in the Belly of the Whale

“In my distress I called to the Lord,and he answered me.
From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help,and you listened to my cry.

You hurled me into the depths,into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me; all your waves and breakers swept over me.

I said, ‘I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple.’

The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head.

To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever.
But you, Lord my God, brought my life up from the pit.

“When my life was ebbing away, I remembered you, Lord, and my prayer rose to you,
to your holy temple.

“Those who cling to worthless idols turn away from God’s love for them.

But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you.

What I have vowed I will make good.

I will say, ‘Salvation comes from the Lord.’”

The Wheels Continue To Come Off The Benghazi Bus

"Go ahead. Piss me off again."

From the UK Daily Mail. Hillary provides another lugnut loosening wrench:
The State Department has said that it never believed the September 11th attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi was the result of a protest over an anti-Islam movie - directly contracting the rest of the Obama administration.

By trying to distance her department from the inept and deceptive handling of the Benghazi attack, which left U.S. ambassador Chris Stevens and three other American officials dead, Hillary Clinton could help herself politically for a 2016 presidential run.

A dramatic new account by the State Department reveals that Stevens was locked inside a 'safe room' choking to death from diesel-heavy smoke as the building around him burned to the ground.
Hillary neither forgives nor forgets. She is throwing the entire affair right back onto Obama's lap. Oh, and what did grinnin' Joe Biden have to say about this?
Vice President Joe Biden claimed that the administration wasn't aware of requests for more security in Libya before the Sept. 11 attacks on the U.S. mission in Benghazi during Thursday night's debate, contradicting three State Department officials and the former head of diplomatic security in Libya.

"We weren't told they wanted more security. We did not know they wanted more security there," Biden said.
This is going to be in play right up until Election Day, probably longer.

Biden Puts The Dope In Rope-A-Dope

"Hey, Obama let me pet his puppy."

From the Weekly Standard:
Vice President Biden arrived at about 10:50 a.m. at New Castle Airport. He climbed out of a gray SUV, greeted some military (see below) and then walked toward the press gathered near the wing.

Asked about tonight's debate he said, "Looking forward to it."


Asked about his strategy, whether it was rope-a-dope, he responded:

"You ever see me rope-a-dope?"
More like Dope-On-A-Rope. I fully expect this man to crap his pants during the debate.

Been Busy


The kitchen remodeling is now proceeding apace. The electrical work is done, the soffits and tray ceiling are in and the insulation/sheetrock is going up. The new cabinets were delivered Friday and the wife and I were looking at kitchen carts/islands on Saturday. It took several days for the electrical work to be completed as the electrician found nearly a half dozen problems in the old wiring, three back fed circuits to start with. God willing, the cabinets will be up by the end of this week. My running around like a madman has been greatly reduced.

Sgt. Girl made another surprise visit this weekend. She is extending her contract so she can redeploy (her battalion leaves in  90 days) and she is pretty sure she will not reenlist for another three years. Not sure what she will do afterwards but she would love to open a bed and breakfast somewhere in NY. After church service, she and Mumma made delicious pumpkin rum cake and pumpkin squares; she left at oh-dark hundred this morning to return to Bragg.

Our youngest has had it with SUNY Oneonta and will not return after the end of this semester. Her grades are good, but it is just not what she wanted. Part of the problem is finding some people she can relate to. She has been brought up in a Christian home and spent her first year away from home at a bible college - which she said was like living at home anyway. She does not like the loose moral environment and the students' immaturity at the state college and called Saturday night to tell us. We knew she was struggling with this and made sure she understood that  we were not pressuring her to continue. She is mindful of the financial contributions we made and did not want to disappoint us.

She has had some problems with her roommate and related how this young woman had a strained relationship with her divorced parents. She seemed to be resentful that our daughter loved to Skype us and talk/text us several times a week and would not join her and her friends in ripping apart other girls for they way they dressed, the boys they liked, etc. So they thought our daughter was conceited, they had it all wrong. We brought her up to be a kind, considerate, person - not some self-absorbed, neurotic mess. I feel sorry for them, the kids today deserve better from their parents and

I BLAME THE PARENTS.

Forget the iPods, huge weekly allowances and designer clothes. Kids need a secure, structured home where consistent love and discipline is provided by a mom and dad.

Any way, have a Merry or Happy Columbus Day. Rejoice in the fact that he wasn't named Christopher Thudpucker.

Like A Good Neighbor - Gaza Is There


The Egyptians are closing dozens of smuggling tunnels that permit access from the Gaza Strip into Egypt after Palestinian terrorists snuck across the border and murdered sixteen Egyptian border guards. From the Jerusalem Post:
For the first time since the election of President Mohamed Morsi, Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have staged demonstrations against the demolition of tunnels along the border with Egypt.

Some of the protests were organized by Hamas, whose leaders had thus far refrained from criticizing Morsi and the new Egyptian government.

The protests are seen as the first sign of tensions between Hamas and the Egyptians since the ouster of president Hosni Mubarak in February 2011.

In recent weeks, Egyptian security forces have destroyed dozens of tunnels that Hamas and many Palestinians used to smuggle goods and people across the border.

The move came after unidentified terrorists killed 16 Egyptian border guards in their military base in Sinai during Ramadan.

“Oh, people and president of Egypt, until when will you continue to impose a blockade on the Gaza Strip,” read a placard carried by one of the protesters during a demonstration near the border with Egypt.
Oh, people and leaders of Gaza, when will you grab a clue?

There is a lot of pissing and moaning about how tough life is in Palestine and how medical supplies and food are hard to get and blah blah bullshit.

But not a single sentence decrying how the tunnels are used for terror, murder and chaos.

Not a single word on how to control the savage impulses of these maniacs who cross international borders to pillage and wreck havoc.

It's as if the Muslims consider it a God-given given right to slaughter anyone they want to; it's the 3rd Amendment of the Koran right after freedom to humiliate woman and man/goat love.

I Got To Take No Steeeeking Poll!




From PJ Media - in a nutshell:
53% of Americans actively refuse to answer poll questions.

The real breakdown chart should look like this:

38% could not be reached
53% were contacted but actively refused to answer
9% cooperated and answered the polling questions

Or, put another way:

Out of every 7 people contacted by pollsters, only 1 will answer the polling question, while the remaining 6 refuse to answer.

Is This What Obama Means By Being More "Flexible"?


From Russia without love via the Business Insider:
Experts Believe Russia Is Bankrolling A Plan To End Shale Gas

The Kremlin is watching, European nations are rebelling, and some suspect Moscow is secretly bankrolling a campaign to derail the West's strategic plans.

It's not some Cold War movie; it's about the U.S. boom in natural gas drilling, and the political implications are enormous.

Like falling dominoes, the drilling process called hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is shaking up world energy markets from Washington to Moscow to Beijing. Some predict what was once unthinkable: that the U.S. won't need to import natural gas in the near future, and that Russia could be the big loser.

"This is where everything is being turned on its head," said Fiona Hill, an expert on Russia at the Brookings Institution, a think tank in Washington. "Their days of dominating the European gas markets are gone."

Any nations that trade in energy could potentially gain or lose.

"The relative fortunes of the United States, Russia, and China — and their ability to exert influence in the world — are tied in no small measure to global gas developments," Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government concluded in a report this summer.

There's No Fixing Stupid

Happy Idiot Poses With Her Ticket To Nose Candy Paradise

Give an idiot a million bucks and you've got a wealthy idiot. From the Daily Mail:
Three months after pledging to turn her life around and get a job, a lottery winner convicted of fraud has died from a suspected overdose.

In June Amanda Clayton pleaded no contest to fraud, having continued to collect state welfare handouts despite pocketing her $1 million prize.

She accepted her punishment and was said by her lawyer to be trying to move on. But on Saturday morning she was found dead at her Michigan home.
Amanda also plead guilty to fraud when she continued receiving food stamps after winning the lottery. She did buy a house, a new car and apparently enough drugs to kill herself.

Our Homey At The UN

The Liar-In-Chief Addresses A Pit Of Liars

Obama made an amazing statement in his UN speech. It defies imagination that any American politician who swears an oath of office, much less the President, could say anything so profoundly contrary to the freedoms guaranteed under the Constitution.

“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”

From Diana West:

No Big Media outlet reported this stunning pronouncement. It’s as if Ronald Reagan addressed the National Association of Evangelicals in 1983 and the media failed to report that he used the phrase “evil empire.” To make the comparison more direct, imagine if a Republican president declared that “the future must not belong to those who slander the messiah of Christianity” – or, for that matter, the prophet of Latter-day Saints. We would have heard all about it, and for the rest of our lives.

Of course, the Islam-Christianity comparison isn’t a perfect match, given the peculiar definition of “slander” under Islamic law (Shariah). According to such authoritative sources as “Reliance of the Traveller,” a standard Sunni law book approved by Cairo’s Al-Azhar University, “slander” in Islam includes anything Muslims perceive to reflect badly on Islam and its prophet, including the truth. In other words, any negative fact about Islam and Muhammad is, under Islamic law, deemed “slander.”

Does the president, son of a Muslim father and raised for four years as a Muslim by his stepfather in Indonesia, understand this? Shouldn’t someone in the White House press corps bother to ask?
Of course he understands this! Of course!

The reason you don't hear Obama's Sharia message is because it was was never intended for your ears. Obama's lapdog media made sure of that.

Just as Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu's UN message concerning Iran's nuclear capabilities was really addressed to the American people, Obama's message was directed to his masters. Are his masters Islamic? - I really don't think so. As a religion, Islam is a confederation of 10,000 imams in a homicidal clown circus without a ringleader, an overseer, such as a Caliph (or the equivalent of a Pope). No, Obama's masters are the string pullers behind the Islamic religious facade. And I believe it is a Satanic coalition using the world's finance systems to gain political control. This is the world's preparation for the Beast of Revelation.

The Apostle John's Revelation is a 2,000 year old prophetic warning to all believers. There will be a government that imposes its control over a significant portion of the world population and everyone will be forced to pledge allegiance to it's leader - a false god who will deceive the nations. Just as Obama has deceived America, so will the Antichrist deceive the world. Is Obama the Antichrist? Of course not. But the spirit of antichrist has been active since Jesus' sacrifice on the cross and Obama, under the tutelage of  his mentor, Jeremiah Wright, and his apostate church, is a willing accomplice.

And of course our media throws a blanket over another example of Obama, Satan's hand puppet, broadcasting his true intentions. To this end the media has also assisted the Antichrist in his efforts to destabilize governments by destroying their moral foundation.

The media will lead the parade into Hell, waving flags, broadcasting sports and idiotic sitcoms that don't mean anything, selling cars and displaying T&A on the world's flat panel televisions in high definition. And the multitudes will follow gladly.

Whether he's the bastard son of a Kenyan polygamist or the bastard son of a Communist agitator makes no difference. He's a dangerous tool in the hands of powerful men who hate our Savior, who hate liberty and freedom and who hate America. And he is dragging this country down a preordained path to destruction. This kind of action doesn't happen by accident. It takes extensive planning and co-conspirators, lots of them in important positions.
