I Won't Grow Up

That's what Peter Pan and his little fairy-dusted pals sang to Wendy in the 1960 broadway musical, "Peter Pan," made famous by Mary Martin.

Peter Pan the musical is now Peter Pan the the socialist maneuver, produced by George Soros, directed by the DNC and financed by the US taxpayer through stimulus funding by the company that owns the company that controls Zuccotti Park.

You remember... Brookfield Asset Management, Inc., the corporation that owns Brookfield Renewable Power Fund, which owns Brookfield Office Properties, whose holdings include Zuccotti Park (One Liberty Plaza). And as of December 7, 2010, Brookfield also owns the Granite Reliable wind farm project that just recently received a $168.9 million loan guarantee from the Obama administration.

We should all get front row tickets to this show.

But every show needs a star; and there is now a new Wendy.

The Florida mom who ditched her banker husband and four kids to live in Zuccotti Park squalor is a hippie homemaker whose neighbors are horrified by her latest antics -- but are hardly surprised that she flew the coop.

Stacey Hessler, 38 -- a self-described “vegan freak” who’s into dreadlocks, roller derby and “unschooling” her kids -- acts like a self-obsessed college sophomore who never grew up, said a neighbor in her hometown of DeLand, Fla.

“I’m not disgusted she took off [to protest] -- because I’m not surprised,” seethed one next-door neighbor who asked that her name not be published.

“She believes everything should be free,” the neighbor added.
The bong hits of fairy dust will do it every time.
One angry neighbor said yesterday it was hardly surprising that Hessler would leave her kids behind and go radical.

“She’s very bizarre,” the neighbor insisted.

On her Facebook page, Hessler wrote about being a surrogate mom. She also boasted of a panoply of California-style beliefs.

She called herself a “radical unschooling mom of four, midwives assistant, roller-derby queen, rock-star musician, activist, dreadlock princess, African-bee keeper, organic vegan freak and a surrogate for the second time.”

Hessler has gotten even more hippie since she arrived in New York. In Zuccotti Park, she’s been sharing a tarp with a Brooklyn waiter and plans to stay “indefinitely.”

I won't grow up!
I don't wanna take a bath!
I'll be unemployed forever!
Shit on police cars for a laugh!

If growing up means serving my family,
Instead of screwing some waiter under a Zuccotti Park tree,
I'll never grow up!
Never grow up!
Never grow uuuuup!
Not me!

Making America Safer - One Crotch At A Time

Work it baby! Work it!
America has spoken!
We just can't enough degradation and harassment in our nation's airports, so the blue clad bully boyz of the TSA are taking their show on the road!

From the State of Tennessee where dangerous crotches run rampant:
PORTLAND, Tenn. – You're probably used to seeing TSA's signature blue uniforms at the airport, but now agents are hitting the interstates to fight terrorism with Visible Intermodal Prevention and Response (VIPR).

"Where is a terrorist more apt to be found? Not these days on an airplane more likely on the interstate," said Tennessee Department of Safety & Homeland Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons.
And in your crotch where C-4 grows wild and angels fear to tread.
The TSA motto: "All Your Crotch Are Belong To Us."
Tuesday Tennessee was first to deploy VIPR simultaneously at five weigh stations and two bus stations across the state.

Agents are recruiting truck drivers, like Rudy Gonzales, into the First Observer Highway Security Program to say something if they see something.

Never mind that busload of nuns. Are you ready for the magic?

"Not only truck drivers, but cars, everybody should be aware of what's going on, on the road," said Gonzales.
Now the TSA will randomly yank you put of your car, stand you on the side of the road and root around for any IEC's (Improvised Explosive Crotches) in traffic. Somehow that all makes sense in the land that spawned Al Gore.

I feel a lot safer already.

'Til Death Do Us Part

They were married on May 26th in 1939 and died within an hour of each other 72 years later. From the Daily Mail:
After 72 years of marriage they had only an hour's separation between them in their passing, yet their locked hands never let go.

The family of the Iowa couple say their life together was a real-life love story, never separated, even after their tragic car accident which sent them both to the hospital.

[...] The very day Norma graduated from high school, Gordon proposed to her, sending them down the isle on May 26th of 1939.

Seventy-two years and four children later, they rarely strayed from one another.

'They just loved being together. Everybody argues once in a while,' Dennis said, but his father would continuously say, 'I have to stick around. I can't go until she does because I have to stay here for her and she would say the same thing.'
Both died from injuries suffered in a car wreck last Wednesday. Both were unresponsive upon their arrival at the ER. They were holding hands in the ambulance and the ER staff did not separate them. Gordon, 94, died at 3:38 PM and Norma, 90, followed him at 4:48 PM.

Just like a woman, always late.

And he was waiting for her at the Gate.

I imagine they are still holding hands.

This is particularly poignant for me. Last April an elderly couple ran a red light in front of my sister and she T-boned their vehicle on a busy MD state highway. The driver, in his mid-eighties, died that night. His wife died two days later. My sister was very fortunate in that she suffered only minor injuries but this has affected her spiritually and emotionally.

The County DA and the next of kin absolved her of any blame. She did not sue the deceaseds' estate. God was extremely gracious, there was no desire and no need to prolong the grief. I pray that they did not suffer as I pray that no one else was seriously  injured in the accident that took the lives of Mr. and Mrs. Yeager.

Cain Slew ...?

Herman Cain is tied with Romney in one poll, and beats Obama in another.
From the Daily News:
The 65-year-old political neophyte is now in a dead heat with Mitt Romney for the GOP nomination, a new CNN poll found.

And a Rasmussen Reports poll out Monday shows Cain narrowly ahead of President Obama in a head-to-head matchup, 43% to 41%.

If nothing else, the next twelve months will prove to be very entertaining.

Dirty Hippies - Who Loves Ya Baby?

Those nasty unwashed commies hippies (don't want to give commies a bad name) who have infested New York City like a plague of fleas on a bluetick hound have friends in very high places. Plans to cleanse their "mother hive" in Zuccotti Park before the Black Death returns were canceled by the owners of the Park. Reports from within the squalid hive reveal that it is a sanitary disaster, a drug-infested nightmare. So why the change in plans?

Here's The Real Reason Why Occupy Wall Street Protesters Aren't Getting Kicked Out Of Zuccotti Park

Coming on the heels of the Solyndra debacle, the Obama administration has just approved a $168.9 million loan guarantee for the Granite Reliable wind farm project owned by Brookfield Asset Management (BAM).

Among its many holdings BAM owns Brookfield Renewable Power, which owns the Granite Reliable and it also owns Brookfield Office Properties, whose holdings include the now famous Zuccotti Park.

The Department of Energy finalized the loan guarantee less than a week after Occupy Wall Street protesters took to Zuccotti Park, and with the Obama administration's Tuesday endorsement of the protests, rumors are starting to circulate that this could be the reason Brookfield is allowing protesters to remain on its property.

[...] Mayor Bloomberg's announcement Monday that protesters could remain as long as they liked, also raised a few eyebrows and it turns out he has a personal connection to Brookfield as well. The mayor's longtime domestic partner Diana Taylor is on the Board of Directors at Brookfield Properties along with John E. Zuccotti himself.
As Confucius say, "Follow the money."

Zuccotti Park is the former Liberty Plaza Park, It is a privately owed "free space" named after John Zuccotti, the Chairman of Brookfield Office Properties. Zuccotti, an Italian American business man, was the First Deputy Mayor of NYC under Mayor Beame in 1975.

Honoring Our Horse Soldiers

From the Daily Caller:

It was the news the world breathlessly waited for immediately after the 9/11 terror attacks: a report of the first American troops on the ground in Afghanistan.

All at once the world’s attention focused on an iconic photo of those Special Operations Forces doing something no American military had done in nearly a century: They rode horses into combat.

Their secret mission: secure northern Afghanistan by advising the warring tribal factions that formed the Northern Alliance. During the 2011 Veterans Day Parade on November 11, a new monument to these men — and to all Americans in uniform — will make its way down New York City’s famed Fifth Avenue on the way to its final home, a stone’s throw from Ground Zero.
It is fantastic that our soldiers are being honored in this fashion. But it hasn't been 100 years since the thunder of horses hooves struck terror into the hearts of America's foes. Prior to the war in Afghanistan the last cavalry charge by US mounted troops was lead by Lt. Edward Ramsey of the 26th Cavalry Regiment (the Philippine Scouts) on 16 JAN 1942.
[...] in a charge against Japanese infantry in the village of Morong. Mounted on his horse Bryn Awryn, a chestnut gelding, Lt Ramsey led the last American cavalry charge to victory and was awarded the Silver Star after the war. The American cavalry carried no swords, since April 18, 1934, the issuance of swords to US cavalry troopers was discontinued, but they were packing the ubiquitous Colt 1911.
Fighting on horseback is not easy. In 1914 the US War Department issued a Saber Exercise manual which was prepared by Master of the Sword, Lt. George S. Patton, who himself designed the Model 1913 Cavalry Saber.

In the following excerpt, Lt. Patton explains the concept "thrust at the right moment."
24. In the charge the trooper is merely a projectile, the saber it’s point. He is a unit in a line rushing on the enemy with the one idea of riding him down and transfixing him with his rigid saber, held at the position of charge saber. In the mêlée, the trooper still goes at speed, riding down his opponent, but here the ranks are broken, and both he and his opponent have more room. In this case should he maintain the position of charge saber, he would have less control of his horse and might easily be attacked from either flank or from the rear, and he would be helpless except against attack in front. Hence, he takes the position of guard toward his nearest enemy, crouching slightly in his saddle and alive to all possible attacks. In this alert position he gallops on his adversary and makes a lunge to the right front or left front when he estimates that the point of his saber will reach it’s full extension about 6 inches before touching the breast of his adversary. If the trooper does this accurately his enemy will have no time to parry and the speed of approach of the two horses will instantly transfix him. This is called the thrust at the right moment.
Patton would later become famous as a visionary amored cavalry commander and tactician. But his first love was mounted cavalry.
The cavalry saber, Model 1913, was the last saber issued to and used by the U.S. Cavalry. The designer of the "last of the bright blades" was Lieutenant George S. Patton, Jr. At the time of the redesign, Patton was "Master of the Sword at the Mounted Service School" at Fort Riley, Kansas. Quite an honor for a young Army Lieutenant. Because of his involvement with and enthusiasm for the cavalry saber Patton was given the first of many nicknames, "Saber George."

According to The New Cavalry Equipment, an article appearing in the September 1912 issue of the Journal of the United States cavalry Association, the saber was designed to be a cut and thrust weapon. It had a two-edged blade with a chisel point. The blade was of forged steel and the sword was thirty-eight inches in overall length. It weighed two pounds.

The blade was manufactured with blood-letting grooves running down each side to within 4-3/4 inches of the point. The grips were black hard rubber with 13 per inch checking. The guard was made of 0.042 inch thick sheet steel.
Cavalry charge: thrusting a three foot long hunk of steel through the chest of your opponent while closing at a combined speed of fifty plus miles per hour. A ballsy concept that takes much practice, but by 1914 the use of the saber had all but disappeared from modern warfare.
