Beggar Obama

Okay America, give it up!
I want some more!

Obama is bowing and begging. He'll soon be standing at an entrance ramp to I-95 with a sign saying that he will read from a teleprompter for food.

From Breitbart's Big-Government:
Got a birthday, anniversary, or wedding coming up?

Let your friends know how important this election is to you—register with Obama 2012, and ask for a donation in lieu of a gift. It’s a great way to support the President on your big day. Plus, it’s a gift that we can all appreciate—and goes a lot further than a gravy bowl.
Beggar Obama also does Bar Mitzvahs!
Got a special milestone or event coming up?

Instead of another gift card you’ll forget to use, ask your friends and family for something that will go a little further: a donation to Obama for America. Register your next celebration—whether it’s a birthday, bar or bat mitzvah, wedding, or anniversary—with the Obama campaign. It’s a great way to show your support for a cause that’s important to you on your big day.

Beware Of Owner

I haven't qualified with a pistol in over 13 years.
I fixed that this morning.
Boy, have things changed - the course of fire and the targets!
It didn't feel right shooting at a Irishman.

I'm gonna leave it on the door for a while.

I Love The Smell Of Environmental Nutjobs

“A massive campaign must be launched to de-develop the United States. De-development means bringing our economic system into line with the realities of ecology and the world resource situation.”

Paul Ehrlich, Professor of Population Studies
Greenese translation, "Since we are so much smarter and wiser than the rest of you, we have no choice but to forcibly ravage the economic lives of untold millions of people in order to satisfy our crazed social policies. All your resource are belong to us!"
"The only hope for the world is that there is not another United States"

-Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defence Fund
Greenese translation, "Despite the United States position as the single most surviving beacon of freedom left in the world, it must be extinguished. The snail darters demand it. The praire bush clover demands it. The bog turtles demand it. The shrill voices in my head demand it. You must obey."
"The United States symbolises the worst ideology in the world; growth and freedom."

-Pentti Linkola, 'Deep Ecologist' writer.
Greenese translation, "No more growth. No more freedom. Just tiny slaves. Itty bitty, teeny weeny slaves. Carrying cute little baskets on their wee little heads. And you shall all work for me."

“One America burdens the earth much more than twenty Bangladeshes. This is a terrible thing to say in order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.”

Jacques Cousteau,   (from a Nov., 1991, UNESCO Courier interview~ sig94)
Greenese translation,"America is evil because it doesn't smell like shit. Bangladeshe smells like shit. I love shit. I love the smell of shit. Shit smells like a shrinking Dark Ages population infested with plague ridden fleas. If I were still alive I would cover myself in shit and play with fleas."
"We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land."

- David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!
No need for translation. Batshit is as batshit does.

The Cause For Truth

Today the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee voted to impeach the US Attorney General for Contempt of Congress. The vote fell strictly along party lines with 17 Democrats opposing and 23 Republicans approving the measure. Now it moves to the House floor where only a simple majority is required to pass it.

Of course there is the usual air of contention, partisan bickering as the Democrats denounce the measure; but there is a certain oily tang to it, a redolent stench of ancient sins, modern corruption and the ever present hypocrisy of Washington politics.

From the Hill:
The Congressional Tri-Caucus, meanwhile, condemned the move as “politics at its worst.” The caucus consists of nearly 80, mostly Democratic members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC), the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC), and the Congressional Asian Pacific American Caucus.

“This is an extremely low moment in our body politic,” said Rep. Emanuel Cleaver (D-Ill.), the chairman of the CBC. “The cause for civility has been met by an unnecessary and unfortunate partisanship.” [emphasis mine ~sig94]
What about the cause for truth? The cause for the unvarnished truth that would establish the circumstances surrounding a disastrous operation that has caused the death of at least one federal agent and hundreds of Mexican citizens? Since when has civility superseded truth? How did we miss the memo?  This is Satan in action as he destroys the legal fabric of our society.

And I say ancient sin because this type of brigandry is as old as mankind itself. I am reminded of how honest men react to this type of abuse and how their outrage is reflected through the ages. Sample this oration of Cicero (the first of four) against Cataline in 63 BC.
When, O Catiline, do you mean to cease abusing our patience? How long is that madness of yours still to mock us? When is there to be an end of that unbridled audacity of yours, swaggering about as it does now? Do not the nightly guards placed on the Palatine Hill—do not the watches posted throughout the city—does not the alarm of the people, and the union of all good men—does not the precaution taken of assembling the senate in this most defensible place—do not the looks and countenances of this venerable body here present, have any effect upon you? Do you not feel that your plans are detected? Do you not see that your conspiracy is already arrested and rendered powerless by the knowledge which every one here possesses of it? What is there that you did last night, what the night before— where is it that you were—who was there that you summoned to meet you—what design was there which was adopted by you, with which you think that any one of us is unacquainted?

Shame on the age and on its principles! The senate is aware of these things; the consul sees them; and yet this man lives. Lives! aye, he comes even into the senate. He takes a part in the public deliberations; he is watching and marking down and checking off for slaughter every individual among us. And we, gallant men that we are, think that we are doing our duty to the republic if we keep out of the way of his frenzied attacks.

You ought, O Catiline, long ago to have been led to execution by command of the consul. That destruction which you have been long plotting against us ought to have already fallen on your own head.
Lucius Sergius Catilina was part of a plot to assassinate the consul (Cicero) and take over the Roman government. These were the Catilinian Conspiracies that arose in part due to the tremendous debt foisted upon the Roman Republic by a series of wars. The economy of Roman was in shambles and many farmers lost their homes and moved to Rome; there they swelled the ranks of the unemployed and volatile poor which included many veterans. It was from these ranks that Catiline sought to build another army and conquer Rome. Catiline was killed in battle with his make shift army in 62 BC.

The Daily reports:
While 144 Americans have died in Afghanistan in 2012, a whopping 228 Chicago residents have been killed, and the murder rate is up a staggering 35 percent from last year. That’s a rash of homicides quadruple the rate of New York City’s, and police and crime experts fear it may only get worse.

Death Comparison

********Chicago *********Afghanistan
2012 ....... 228 ................. 149
2011 ....... 430 ................. 418
2010 ....... 432 ................. 499
2009 ....... 458 ................. 317
2008 ....... 510 ................. 155
2007 ....... 443 ................. 117
2006 ....... 468 ................. 99
2005 ....... 448 ................. 98
Total ..... 3417 ................ 1852
It's a quagmire. We must abandon Chicago.

In no way am I trying to equate these deaths nor the manner in which these souls met their Maker. However, the point being made is abundantly clear. The number of Americans deployed to Afghanistan is far less than the number of Americans living in Chicago. The chance that an American will die in Chicago is far greater.

Operation Caption Obama

We haven't had a caption contest in a long while.

The Inappropriate Carry On Blues
A woman was told she could not board a Southwest Airlines flight from Las Vegas to New York because "her cleavage was inappropriate." She refused to stow the offensive baggage and got on the flight anyway. Southwest Airlines has issued her an apology and a carry on sweater puppy kennel.
Yes, By All Means Make Him An Ambassador To Iran
Mia Farrow's son with Andre Previn has issues with his mother's ex-husband, hyper-neurotic movie star and director Woody Allen. The son, Satchel Ronan O’Sullivan Farrow, is disturbed that his father left his mother and married his adopted half-sister, Soon-Yi Previn. While the nation's true chronic unemployment numbers are approaching 20% and people are growing ever more desperate for work, young master Ronan has procured an appointment as a special adviser to the Secretary of State for Global Youth Issues and director of the State Department’s Global Youth Issues office. I have an issue with that.
I'll Take "We'll Kick Your Ass Again" For A Thousand, Alex
Even though it appears that the Muslim Brotherhood has won the Presidential Elections, the Supreme Council of Armed Forces (Scaf) has pretty much taken over Egypt. A confidential and reliable source within the Supreme Council has admitted that they fear that the "Allah-cursed Joos will kick the ever lovin felafel out of us" if the Muslim Brotherhood actually takes power. Israel is already suffering attacks from the Sinai Penisula and has moved tanks and other equipment into the area. Docile for decades since the 1979 Egypt–Israel Peace Treaty, radical Muslims have moved into the Sinai and used it as a base for assaulting Israeli workers constructing a defensive barrier.

President Obama is watching this situation with great interest. Obama's close political advisor, David Axelrod, was heard to whisper to the President that "those stinking Tea Party conservatives will kick the ever lovin' subpoenas out of us" if they actually win an election.
Watch for a coup.

Can't We All Just Get Along ... He Does Now

Here's an unexpected Father's Day present, Rodney King is no longer with us.
From Fox News:
Rodney King, key figure in LA riots, found dead
[...]King's fiancé called 911 at 5:25 a.m. to report that she found him at the bottom of the swimming pool at their home in Rialto, Calif., police Lt. Dean Hardin said.

Officers arrived to find King in the water and unresponsive, with no signs of foul play. He was transported to Arrowhead Regional Hospital, where he was pronounced dead at 6:11 a.m, Hardin said.

The San Bernardino County coroner will perform an autopsy within 48 hours.
No photos. Just about everything this man did was a waste of breath.
