Two First Ladies exiting Air Force One, representing these United States of America to the world.
Well, you wanted "Change".

From the People's Cube, of course.

Gun Nut Roundup - November '09

Canuck Gun Registry Headed For Scrap Heap?

Although it's not a done deal yet, Canada's registry of long-gun ownership may soon be abolished. The long-gun registry was started in 1996. Despite an initial price tag of $2 million, the long-gun registry has gobbled up $1 billion with no end in sight.

In a Parliamentary vote split along urban/rural lines, but with unanimous opposition from the delegation of wine-slurping slobs of Quebec, the registry has passed at least one major hurdle toward dismantlement.

The country's handgun registry, however, would remain intact. In it's 70+ years in existence, Canada's handgun registry has helped police solve a grand total of 3 crimes. No wonder those hosers are gonna hold onto that one, eh!
Pirates Hit Maersk Alabama Again!
Although Navy SEALs made the last batch of Somali pirates to attack the Maersk Alabama into good Somali pirates, some people are slow learners. In November the ship was attacked by sea-going thugs yet again. This time the merchant ship had an armed security contingent aboard that lit up the approaching pirates with sound weapons and small arms fire, driving them off.
For ships that can't afford professional security forces, a bill introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives would make it easier for ships to arm their organic crews. H.R. 2984 would "assist in the defense of United States-flag vessels against piracy and to ensure the traditional right of self-defense of those vessels against piracy."
Shocker: Eric Holder Seeks More Gun Control In Response To Ft. Hood Shootings
In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, U.S. Attorney Eric (the Red) Holder sought more gun control in response to the Ft. Hood shootings. Yawn.
Among other things, he wants a national gun registration (a proven winner, see Canadian story above) by permanently recording all NICS transactions and the ability to put anyone he wants on a "watch list" (without due process) where they would be unable to buy guns (with no recourse).
Get some new material Eric.

In the world of the Global Warming hoax, the snowball has hit the fan. It would seem that what many of us in the "vast right-wing conspiracy seeking to challenge the science upon which environmentalism is based" knew all along is leaking out, not through the all holes in the theories, but through hacked e-mails.

Climate Depot broke the story this week. East Anglica's Climate Research Unit, or Hadley CRU, Great Britain's largest climate change "research" institute, had a naughty little hacker get into their computers and come up with 61 MB of confidential files and e-mails concerning Global Warming.

In case you can't guess, the information decidedly did NOT support Algore and his acolytes. In fact, it uncovered a whole passel of fraud, skewed figures, modified data, suppressed or destroyed contradictory records, and the ever-popular outright lie. This thing is so big the leftist media may not even be able to hush it up.

The Washington Post says the leak, "Reveals 'blatant displays of personal pettiness, unethical conniving, and twisting the science to support their political position.' " The UK Telegraph is already calling it "Climategate". Even Juan "Maverick" McCain, former good bipartisan pal of Joe Lieberman on wacky environmental power grab bills, has been back pedalling on the eco issues lately.

Global Warming Poster Child Jim Hansen, before he scuttled back under the refrigerator when the light went on, commented, "What's the big deal? I used NASA to skew data and advance my personal political agenda. Why can't the Brits do it, too?"

The information reached Algore at an important $5,000-a-plate Global Warming Awareness Dinner in Monaco. Putting down his creamed terrapin sea turtle and pushing back the fur rim of his parka hood, the Goracle spake thus: "Just like Iran-Contra or Bush's National Guard records, the issue is far too crucial for us to let a complete lack of evidence dissway us from our course. The issue is very near and dear to me, as you know. It's made me a ton of money, but you should see how much JP-4 costs these days. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to fly my private jet to Greenland to supervise the destruction of ancient Viking farms recently uncovered there."

Obama's 234 environment-related czars responded to the revelations on network television last night, shutting their eyes and putting their hands over their ears and loudly chanting, "BLAH! BLAH! BLAH! I"M NOT LISTENING! BLAH! BLAH!"

Nelson from The Simpsons also weighed in by pointing a finger at Algore and going, "HA! HA!"

The President has recently been unable to find any time in his busy Olympics-peddling, Health care-pushing, bankrupting-the-economy agenda to commemorate the 20th anniversary of fall of the Berlin Wall. At the same time, CNS News has released a study documenting how the "mainstream" media devoted no small amount of effort to "whitewashing" the evils of Communism. That isn't much of a surprise to those of here at das blog, and in some cases I would go so far as to say "worshipped" rather than "whitewashed". We've touched on the Utopia that was the Soviet Union under Joe Stalin but it appears that another history lesson about the Iron Curtain and the significance of its fall is in order, for there are far too many Americans, especially young people, who have never head of it.

In a war-torn Europe in the aftermath of WWII, Joesph Stalin was the leader/dictator of the now powerful Soviet Union and at the peace tables he demanded just about every little eastern European country that had just been liberated from the Nazis as a "buffer zone" to protect Russia against the highly unlikely event of an invasion by the U.S. or the United Kingdom (not even a fanatic as paranoid Stalin was worried about the French). The "liberated" countries in the Russian sphere of influence became nothing more than occupied satellite states of the Soviet Union, forced into Communist regimes for government, and ruled with an iron fist by Moscow.

Sir Winston Churchill coined the famous iron curtain phrase in a 1946 speech: "From Stettin in the Baltic to Trieste in the Adriatic an 'iron curtain' has descended across the Continent." Many liberals condemned his speech, of course, but history proved him right, again. The citizens/serfs of the occupied countries quickly began to flee their "Workers' Paradises" for the (then) freedom of the West. It still remains a mystery to many liberals why these people would flee a country with universal health care, but they did.

To keep his new subjects from finding freedom in the West, Stalin did indeed order the construction of a real Iron Curtain, starting with the Berlin Wall in that divided city, and eventually growing to border fortifications than ran clear across the continent of Europe. Unlike other border fortifications built as defenses to keep enemies out, the Iron Curtain was more akin to prison walls, and meant to keep people and information in.

These new fortifications were indeed an Iron Curtain. The above illustration from the West German Border Police (Grentzshutze) shows all the components of the dreadful system. From West to East, first came the actual border, delineated by markers. Roads were, of course, blocked or gated and guarded. The dreaded fence consisted always of at least one barbed and razor wire barrier ten feet tall, and in many places it was electrified as well. Vicious attack dogs patrolled up and down inside the fence with leashes attached to overhead cables and pulleys so that they wouldn't wander off into the electric fence on one side or the minefields on the other.
You hear right. Landmines. Pressure-released anti-personnel mines. Bouncing Betties that fly a few feet up in the air before exploding a storm of shrapnel in all directions. A person hoping to flee to the West first had to navigate a 100-meter wide dead zone full of landmines to even get to the fence itself. All of this was overlooked by fifty foot guard towers manned 24-hours a day, equipped with binoculars, spotlights, night vision, and, of course, automatic weapons to mow down anyone spotted Westbound.
Inside the border barriers was the "5 K Zone", another five kilometer stretch, empty of habitation, off-limits to all but work details. Villages within the 5 K Zone were also walled with electrified wire.
I was once observing the East German border while patrolling it when an elderly couple pulled up in a rented car. They stood looking at a village a considerable distance inside the Iron Curtain. We let them use our binoculars.

Eventually, the man explained that he had been a World War Two infantryman. He had met and married his German wife in the post-war occupation. Her sister lived in that village in the distance. After the wall went up, they had received two letters, and then the letters stopped. For the past twenty years they had never heard from the woman again. They had no idea if she was alive or dead. Looking through binos at her childhood home and wondering about her family, the lady began to cry and they said their thanks to us and departed.

When Colonel Jeff Cooper visited "The Wall", he interviewed the young black staff sergeant who was guiding him on his tour. The soldier had witnessed a mother and her small child attempt to reach the fence. The guards released the attack dogs.

The sergeant told Cooper: "I stood there with a rifle in my hands, but I was not allowed to shoot. I hear those screams every day. The mother's were louder than the child's. They were long and very high. They drown out the growling of the dogs. For a while. As long as I live I will hear them."

For forty years this was the situation, and hundreds of men, women, and children died attempting to escape the Communist Workers' Paradises. When the walls came down in 1989, it was an event of monumental worldwide significance, freeing entire populations, bringing ecstatic celebrations up and down the falling curtain.
So we can see why the anniversary was no big deal, and certainly nothing important enough for the messiah to dirty his hands with. And the fact that very few people out there ever heard about the real wall and what went on there shows our media to be biased indeed; they were too busy bashing Reagan over government cheese to even notice that the Communist countries were nothing more than giant prisons.

No reason to celebrate the 20th anniversary of this blight upon mankind being torn down.

Sorry to step on Ben's post about the renegade Vinton ostrich, but we're coming down to the wire on this looming healthcare "reform" bill. A couple of co-workers I considered otherwise sane and intelligent shocked me by being expressing supporter of the bill this past week. They were completely happy with their own healthcare, but had been convinced the American system was terrible and unfair. But then I found out where they were getting their information...PBS (Pravda) and NPR (Tass).

Apparently these "news" sources and the MSM must be putting on the full court press to pass Obamacare for their false messiah. One guy told me that a man receiving cancer treatment in Great Britain received great, timely care and it only cost $3,000...the same treatment would supposedly cost $200,000 in the United States. The other guy was just blathering on about how superior European health care was because...well...they said so on the radio.

If we had anything even remotely resembling an objective free press engaging in actual journalism in this country, we would know better. But, since we don't, we have to rely on the foreign press to get anything close to the truth. So, for the benefit of all your health care supporter liberal friends, if any, I present the following.

These articles are not just some crazy kooky right-wing Beck/Hannity propaganda. They do not come from a single source. They are not just an isolated example that slipped through the cracks. They come from the real media in Great Britain. I only cited one story per source. Each source listed has literally dozens of horror stories about Britain's NHS, National Health System. There are other sources too numerous to list running the same horror stories. And this is just the British system. Canada can speak of horrors of its own. This is the truth about the socialized medicine systems touted as so successful by everyone from Michael Moore to Max Baucus.

This is what's coming our way folks if we let the political whores in Sodom-on-Potomac socialize 1/6th of the United States economy. It will be a debacle. That is indisputable. It is only a matter of how long it will take. Having managed to once survive visits to the VA, not very bloody long is my guess. This is serious. Contact, or better yet, tar and feather your senator, if you'd rather have a real healthcare system...say, like the one we have now.

Or look into the Orwellian world of Great Britain's National Health System and behold your future.

From the UK Express: "Official figures published yesterday revealed that more than 230,000 patients are being forced to wait more than 18 weeks for hospital treatment."

The Daily Mail: "Spending on NHS bureaucracy has almost doubled in four years, research shows. Nearly £1.2billion went on administrators and clerical staff in Primary Care Trusts in 2007/8, a rise of 81 per cent since 2003/4."

The Times: "A three-year-old girl awaiting heart surgery has had her operation cancelled three times this month because of a shortage of beds."

BBC: "NHS and social services in England are failing to meet the health needs of people with learning disabilities, investigators say."

The Guardian: "Children in Britain are being failed by a culture that gives them low priority, exposing them to poor healthcare, knife crime and sexually transmitted diseases, according to the outgoing head of the Healthcare Commission."

Management in Practice: "The leader of Scotland’s GPs yesterday (12 March 2009) accused the government of relying on “politically driven targets”, instead of “clinically driven, evidence-based policy”, and warned that this approach threatened to undermine the success of Scottish general practice."

Daily Telegraph: "Children are being put at risk by inexperienced surgeons and a lack of basic child protection training in hospitals, a damning report from the health watchdog has found."

The Harwich and Manningtree Standard: "Children's nurses who specialise in diabetes are being vastly overworked, a charity has said."

The Metro: "Patients face a lottery which dictates how much is spent on their dental treatment, new figures suggest.
Some could rely on £50 each, while others were given just £30 each, the NHS revealed on Wednesday."

The Scotsman: "A LOTHIAN woman was told she was being taken off a consultant's waiting list so the target 18-week waiting time for treatment could be met, it was claimed today."

Post Chronicle: "Britain's National Health Service is advising general practitioners to refer fewer patients to specialists and to restrict patients' access to a second opinion."

Reuters: "Britain's cost-effectiveness medicines watchdog ruled on Friday that costly erythropoietin (EPO) drugs should not be used to treat anaemia caused by anti-cancer therapy, dealing a blow to drug firms and cancer campaigners."

Scotland Herald: "Hundreds wait to register as another dentist quits the NHS."

Financial Times: "NHS faces rising bill for negligence claims."

Medical News Today: "NHS excluding poor people, UK.
The ethos of the UK National Health Service is being eroded and is excluding the very people it is designed to help, a scathing new report has said."

It just goes on and on and on. I have barely scratched the surface, listing only a few articles from a few sources. It's funny that our teeming swarms of journalists can't pick up on any of this.

For a couple hundred more examples from the European press, look HERE.

Iowans Gone Wild

For those of you that think that living in Iowa might be boring, here are two recent news stories that prove how wrong you are.

Big Bird On The Loose

The first story comes to us from the Vinton metropolitan-area, where an adult ostrich named "Big Bird" recently escaped from a farm and was on the loose. In the TV news segment they show the "missing ostrich" posters that the owners were putting up around the area. The posters featured two close-up photographs of the bird's face.

My question is: Are there so damned many ostriches running around Vinton Iowa that we need to study detailed facial characteristics to ensure we catch the right one? If you see an ostrich on the loose anywhere near Vinton, I'm betting it's the one!

The owners were also attempting to lure the animal back to their farm by putting out buckets of field corn, a rare delicacy amidst the nearly endless expanse of Iowa corn fields.

The story ended in tragedy, however. Early Friday morning "Big Bird" became entangled in concertina wire and was blown apart by Claymore mines and machine-gun fire when it wondered into an undisclosed wooded area and foolishly approached the Ben and Bawb's Blog Eastern command bunker.

The South Rises Again, In Iowa

The next story is really a crappy deal. According to Iowa City police, a man named Robert E. Lee (really!) entered a local CVS Pharmacy, dropped his drawers and defecated on the floor. Robert E. Lee finished his business and calmly walked out of the store. Take that, Yankees!

For you cynical people who immediately wondered what Robert E. Lee's blood alcohol content was, the answer is 0.24, or three times Iowa's legal limit to drive. The good General was charged with criminal mischief and public intoxication, simple misdemeanors.

The manager of the pharmacy said that it would cost less than $200 to clean up Lee's leavings. No kidding? Less than $200? Do they have to get a silver-plated shovel or what? I'd make Robert E. Lee's drunk ass clean it up.

So there you have it, Iowa IS cool after all!

Ft. Hood's Lesson: Soldiers Need Guns Too!

Excerpted from the article, "The Folly of Unilateral Disarmament" at

"When Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan started shooting up the Soldier Readiness Processing Center at Fort Hood, Pfc. Marquest Smith dove under a desk. A.P. reports that 'he lay low for several minutes, waiting for the shooter to run out of ammunition and wishing he, too, had a gun.'

"Neither Smith nor the other victims of Hasan’s assault had guns because soldiers on military bases within the United States generally are not allowed to carry them. Last week’s shootings, which killed 13 people and wounded more than 30, demonstrated once again the folly of 'gun-free zones,' which attract and assist people bent on mass murder instead of deterring them."

It's hard to say anything jocular about the health care "reform" bill now that the House of Reprehensitives has passed, by a narrow margin, their 2,000-page monstrosity. When it heads to the Senate, the only thing that might save us is the threat of a politician's only fear; getting voted out. Thanks to the McCain Incumbent Protection Act, aka "campaign finance reform", the parasitical incumbents who "serve for life", like Teddy K, are much harder to oust, but these particular rats are getting the American people so PO'ed that we're finally ready to kick their fat, corrupt behinds right out of Sodom-on-Potomac.

When I write my Congresscritters these days, I do it as just a token gesture. We the People (the ones who work and pay taxes to support this BS) have no representation in government anymore. When the first "stimulus" bill came along, constituents contacting their Congresbuffoons were running 85% nay on the deal, but the political scum on the thrones merely laughed, spat in our faces, and passed it anyway. I'll continue to play the game and pretend my voice counts just to say I did all I could until the stupid bastards lead this nation to complete ruin and anarchy and they themselves wind up (quite deserved so) hanging from the lamp posts. Don't expect to see me shedding tears over them.

But this time around there's the smell of fear in the air as our "representatives" put on a full court press trying to sell this latest Oceanfront-Property-in-Arizona to the awakening public as "a good thing". They see many lost seats in Congress on the horizon, but still continue to push this horrible thing.

Anyone who says anything negative about the health care bill is a "liar". Just like anyone remotely critical of the Messiah is a racist. Opposition consists only of greedy doctors and insurance companies swimming in ill-gotten profits they screwed us out of (as opposed to just taxing folks 60% of their income under threat of prisons and violent men with guns). The supporters NEVER argue the individual points put forth by the critics, the ones that a written in black and white in the Giant Mutant Bill From Hell, because if they did the whole "liar" thing would end up pointing right at them.

I couldn't force myself to even begin to wading through this latest 2,000-page behemoth as I did the earlier 1,000-page Cliff Notes version. Fortunately, someone forwarded me this email. It is long and not exactly a page-turner and I have not yet looked up each point to fact check them (I just called the doc a liar). However, for what it's worth, here's the points one of those pesky doctors make in regards to the latest greatest monstrous health care "reform" bill. (PS: it also has the ability to create 111 new bureaucracies to administer Obamacare.)

An Indianapolis doctor's letter to Sen. Bayh about the Bill(Note: Dr. Stephen E. Frazer, MD practices as an anesthesiologist in Indianapolis , IN)

Here is a letter I sent to Senator Bayh. Feel free to copy it and send it around to all other representatives. -- Stephen Fraser

Senator Bayh,

As a practicing physician I have major concerns with the health care bill before Congress. I actually have read the bill and am shocked by the brazenness of the government's proposed involvement in the patient-physician relationship. The very idea that the government will dictate and ration patient care is dangerous and certainly not helpful in designing a health care system that works for all. Every physician I work with agrees that we need to fix our health care system, but the proposed bills currently making their way through congress will be a disaster if passed.

I ask you respectfully and as a patriotic American to look at the following troubling lines that I have read in the bill. You cannot possibly believe that these proposals are in the best interests of the country and our fellow citizens.

Page 145 Line 15-17: An Employer MUST auto-enroll employees into public option plan. (NO choice!)

Page 126 Lines 22-25: Employers MUST pay for HC for part-time employees AND their families. (Employees shouldn't get excited about this as employers will be forced to reduce its work force, benefits, and wages/salaries to cover such a huge expense.)

Page 149 Lines 16-24: ANY Employer with payroll 401k & above who does not provide public option will pay 8% tax on all payroll! (See the last comment in parenthesis.)

Page 195 HC Bill: Officers & employees of the GOVT HC Admin.. will have access to ALL Americans' finances and personal records.

Page 203 Line 14-15 HC: "The tax imposed under this section shall not be treated as tax." (Yes, it really says that!)

Page 239 Line 14-24 HC Bill: Govt will reduce physician services for Medicaid Seniors. (Low-income and the poor are affected.)

Page 241 Line 6-8 HC Bill: Doctors: It doesn't matter what specialty you have trained yourself in -- you will all be paid the same! (Just TRY to tell me that's not Socialism!)

Page 253 Line 10-18: The Govt sets the value of a doctor's time, profession, judgment, etc. (Literally -- the value of humans.)

Page 265 Sec 1131: The Govt mandates and controls productivity for "private" HC industries.

Page 341 Lines 3-9: The Govt has authority to disqualify Medicare Advance Plans, HMOs, etc. (Forcing people into the Govt plan)

Page 354 Sec 1177: The Govt will RESTRICT enrollment of 'special needs people!' Unbelievable!

Page 379 Sec 1191: The Govt creates more bureaucracy via a "Tele-Health Advisory Committee." (Can you say HC by phone?)

Page 425 Lines 4-12: The Govt mandates "Advance-Care Planning Consult." (Think senior citizens end-of-life patients.)

Page 425 Lines 17-19: The Govt will instruct and consult regarding living wills, durable powers of attorney, etc. (And it's mandatory!)

Page 425 Lines 22-25, 426 Lines 1-3: The Govt provides an "approved" list of end-of-life resources; guiding you in death. (Also called 'assisted suicide.')

Page 427 Lines 15-24: The Govt mandates a program for orders on "end-of-life." (The Govt has a say in how your life ends!)

Page 429 Lines 1-9: An "advanced-care planning consultant" will be used frequently as a patient's health deteriorates.

Page 429 Lines 10-12: An "advanced care consultation" may include an ORDER for end-of-life plans. (AN ORDER TO DIE FROM THE GOVERNMENT?!?)

Page 429 Lines 13-25: The GOVT will specify which doctors can write an end-of-life order. (I wouldn't want to stand before God after getting paid for THAT job!)

Page 430 Lines 11-15: The Govt will decide what level of treatment you will have at end-of-life! (Again -- no choice!)

Page 469: Community-Based Home Medical Services = Non-Profit Organizations. (Hello? ACORN Medical Services here!?!)

Page 489 Sec 1308: The Govt will cover marriage and family therapy. (Which means Govt will insert itself into your marriage even.)

Page 494-498: Govt will cover Mental Health Services including defining, creating, and rationing those services.

Senator, I guarantee that I personally will do everything possible to inform patients and my fellow physicians about the dangers of the proposed bills you and your colleagues are debating.

Furthermore, if you vote for a bill that enforces socialized medicine on the country and destroys the doctor-patient relationship, I will do everything in my power to make sure you lose your job in the next election.

Dear Reader,
I urge you to use the power that you were born with (and the power that may soon be taken away) and circulate this email to as many people as you can reach. The Power of the People can stop thisfrom happening to us, our parents, our grandparents, our children, and to following generations.

In the above illustration, we see the kind of environmental devastation we can expect at any moment if affluent Americans don't change their evil ways RIGHT NOW! Ooops. Turns out this is just a small amount of the trash left by illegal aliens sneaking into the country from Mexico. We all know minorities can in no way, shape, or form be responsible for anything bad. Never mind. Forget you ever saw this.

Anyway, I was just taking a small look back at some of the seemingly endless predictions of ecological doom and gloom spewn forth by the rapid eco-kooks over the decades. As you may be able to guess, their accuracy level is right up there with that of a blind skeet shooter.

We’ve already detailed the big "New Ice Age Booga-Booga Death Threat" of the late 70’s, which, since its failure discredits their current fantasy, the eco-nuts are now saying was just the work of questionable science and an alarmist media. Chortle, chortle, snort. These people really don’t get the whole irony thing, do they?

So let’s take a quick look at just a couple examples of the long, long list of predictions of death, mayhem, disaster, and rampant Constitutional freedoms prophesied by the eco-kooks for the sake of simple amusement as well as to suggest that maybe, just maybe, their current predictions amount to about the same.

Let’s start with our pal, Al Gore’s mentor, and the so-called father of the Global Warming Scam, Jim Hansen (no, not the guy who did the Muppets, that was Hensen, though he was probably an eco-kook, too). You know, Hansen, the guy who created the model for the New Ice Age in the 70’s, but then went on the lead the Global Warming charge when the glaciers and mastodons failed to materialize.

He held the “testimony” in front of Congress that got the Global Whining ball rolling. An inveterate showman on par with P.T. Barnum, he held his dog-and-pony show during a D.C. heat wave and opened all the windows the night before so the AC wouldn't be able to cool the room and everyone would be sweating like a whore in church. As an aside, I cringe at the thought of the stench in that room as all those Congressmen sweated out the bourbon from the night before. Anyway, he has also been noted for purposely exaggerating and/or faking data to support his pet Global Warming alarmism because the issue “is too important” to be shackled or hindered with pesky little things like “facts”.

In 1988, Hansen warned a journalist with his prediction of what a disaster New Yawk would be like in 20 years if we evil affluent Americans didn’t change our evil ways. “The West Side Highway [which runs along the Hudson River] will be under water. And there will be tape across the windows across the street because of high winds. And the same birds won’t be there. The trees in the median strip will change.”
He missed the mark by a wee bit on that one, but the greenie weenies insist we must still pay attention to him, because last July he testified that if we affluent Americans don’t change our evil ways, in 20 years we will be facing ecological disaster. Hmmm. Sounds familiar. And anyone at all is listening to this yahoo why?

Then there’s Paul Ehrlich, a Stanford professor, recipient of something called a “genius grant” (apparently about as worthless as a Nobel Prize these days), who has been peddling doom and gloom since the 1970’s as well. Of course, his predictions pretty much all turn out to be somewhere between ludicrous and moronic, definitely not “genius”, but the left and their lapdogs in the media still think the doofus is somehow relevant. Mainly because he has some goofy new book out that bemoans the threat of a “vast right wing conspiracy” seeking to discredit the environmental movement via the dastardly and dishonest tactic of, “challenging the science upon which environmentalism is based." How dare we!

Anyway, according to Paul Wile E. Coyote, Super Genius, smog disasters will kill almost a quarter of a million people in LA and New York in 1973, the oceans will be devoid of marine life by 1979 and by 1980 life expectancy in the US will drop to 42 years of age. The President will dissolve Congress during the food riots of the 1980’s, the rest of the world will nuke us to keep our poisoned food from “getting” them, and our population will dwindle to less than 27 million by 1999.

Well, yeah, sure, maybe those predictions turned out to be a tad bit off but, by Gaia, we better listen this time! This time they're not kidding! This time they're right! They're scientists and an experts! Trust us! Wolf! Wolf!

We all now know that the so-called "Birthers" who want to see the mighty most powerful Barack Obama's birth certificate have been relegated to wacko kook tinfoil hat conspiracy theory nutcase status. But that's just a tiny blip on the radar of Barry's unusual life as he followed his hippie mom around the globe as she apparently hopped in the sack with anyone as long as it wasn't some evil American.

So we'll hear nothing more about the whole "Birther" thing in this column. But what about Zero's medical records as a whole? When John McCain delayed releasing his records the New Yawk Times shrieked to their remaining 27 subscribers that "No presidential candidate should get to the point that he has locked up his party’s nomination without public vetting of his health.” When it came to Sarah Palin, the Lamestream Press practically demanded to conduct their own gynecology exams on live television.

But, we ask the intrepid journalists of the ever vigilant watchdog press, what about Barack’s sealed medical records? (Sound of crickets chirping).

Veteran Whitehouse Reporter Kenneth Walsh said Barry was the smartest (most cerebral) president he has ever met. But no one in the press have shown even the slightest bit of curiosity about the education that made him the Smartest Man in the World. (Sarah, of course, had every grade, class, date, and sports foul of her college career subjected to an anal exam).

In grade school in Indonesia, Barack's school registration card shows the future super-genius listed as a "Muslim" with "Indonesian" citizenship. Be that as it may, back in the USSA,
Obama’s performance at Occidental College was brilliant enough to land him into Columbia. But of course, those records are sealed too although, if you go to the college web site, you can request transcripts of his poetry. I kid you not. I can’t help but get this image of Eddie Murphy in fake dreadlocks singing, “Kill de white people, c-i-l-l, kill.” on Saturday Night Live. Some speculate these records are sealed because Zero the Hero applied using Indonesian citizenship to get a sweet free-ride tuition deal. We'll never know either way.

At Columbia University, Zero went on to achieve…well, nobody knows. Those records are sealed too. But rest assured, peasants, that his academic achievements were so brilliant as to lead him on to prestigious Harvard Law School and to later become a lecturer at the University of Chicago. When he returned “home” to Chi-town, he put all that high fallutin’ education to work as a community organizer, a career that turned out to be surprisingly lucrative.

Education roundup:
Fransiskus Assisi School School application -- Released (by independent investigators)
Punahou School records -- Not released
Occidental College records -- Not released
Columbia College records -- Not released
Columbia thesis -- Not released
Harvard College records -- Not released
Harvard Law Review articles -- None
University of Chicago scholarly articles – None

The press demanded to see Sarah Palin’s Passport and threw a hissy bitch fit about when it was issued and that it had so few stamps in it. Barry traveled to Indonesia and Pakistan when he was 20. What did his passport say, to include that little box that says “Citizenship”? Nobody in the completely unbiased non-partisan press even asked.

That can of worms:
Passport -- Not released and records scrubbed clean by Rahm Emanuel & Company.

We got to hear virtual hour-long soap operas that Sarah Palin’s son Trig was actually her own daughter’s love child and that she used some state clout on an abusive former in-law state trooper. How about Barry’s family and friends? First, the press whole-heartedly agreed that the Obama children were strictly and totally OFF-LIMITS. Without the foreign press and the Internet we never even would have heard of Obama’s relationships with the likes of domestic terrorist Bill Ayers and Wacky Pastor Jeremiah Wright, or that he even had a half brother living in squalor in Kenya or an illegal alien aunt, also living in squalor but on the government dole, here in the States.

Family matters:
Obama/Dunham marriage license -- Not released
Obama/Dunham divorce -- Released (by independent investigators)
Soetoro/Dunham marriage license -- Not released
Soetoro adoption records -- Not released
Soetoro/Dunham divorce -- Released (by independent investigators)

There are a few other loose ends floating around as well. After over a year of FOIA requests, Barry’s selective service registration was finally released, but its authenticity is very, very shaky. In addition that that, we have these other sideline issues.

Odds & Ends:
Baptism certificate -- None
Illinois State Senate records -- None
Illinois State Senate schedule -- Lost
Law practice client list -- Not released

With the current jihad against the evils of smoking and second-hand smoke, how many folks even know, via the relentless integrity of the press, that the SOB smokes cigarettes?

You’d think that someone so holy, with nothing to hide, Mr. Transparency himself, would just get it over with in one fell swoop, release his records, and make all his critics and court cases immediately just shut up and go away.

Well, that’s what you get for thinking around politicians. Instead, Mr. Transparency’s first official act as President of these United States was to sign Executive Order 13489 which seals all his own records.

Nothing to see here, citizen, nothing to see. Move along, you tinfoil hat nutcase wacko kooks. Do not question the Great & Powerful O.

You may run afoul of well-meaning but dumber-than-(insert idiom here) Sheeple bleating things in support of our government in general and our criminal "justice" system in particular. "The truth will set you free." "If you're not guilty, you have nothing to worry about." "This is why we have courts." "Truth, Justice and the American Way." "Better ten guilty men go free than to convict a single innocent man."

Well boys and girls, this ain't an old Henry Fonda movie about 12 angry men; this is the modern American "justice" system and it's become as dysfunctional and dishonest and out-of-control as the rest of our government. If TPTB want you, they'll get you, innocent or not. In some cases, they may not even be out to get you. They might just need a convenient scapegoat to wrap up a loose end. And "Easy-To-Catch" beats the hell out of "Actually Guilty" in their book. Just ask Richard Jewel.

Or ask Terry Harrington or Curtis McGhee, who've been in prison since 1977 for a murder they did not commit. You'd think common sense might enter into their case, but common sense has no place in the judiciary anymore than it has a place anywhere else in American government.
You see, for some reason, it has to go to the Supreme Court of the United States to determine whether or not prosecutors shouldn't frame people for crimes they didn't commit or if you, as the frame-ee, have any Constitutional right not to be framed. I kid you not.

Do prosecutors have total immunity from lawsuits for anything they do, including framing someone for murder? That is the question the justices of the Supreme Court face Wednesday.

On one side of the case being argued are Iowa prosecutors who contend "there is no freestanding right not to be framed." They are backed by the Obama administration, 28 states and every major prosecutors organization in the country.

On the other side are two black men — Terry Harrington and Curtis McGhee — men who served 25 years in prison before evidence long hidden in police files resulted in them being freed.

See the full article here. The hell of it is, this happens alot more often than anyone knows or will admit. Only if a case happens to generate media interest does the malfeasance even come to light. As the prosecutors like to argue in court, "Constitution?!? We don' need no steenking Constitution!" Alas, the rest of the Federal government seems to agree these days, including a recently appointed Supreme Court judge.
On to the next example of Big Fat Lies, or how can you trust ANYTHING the government tells you, how about all those stimulus jobs we're being swamped with? There's so many you can hardly shake a stick at them all. They're just popping out of the woodwork.
Don't believe me? Then check this out.
In June, the federal government spent $1,047 in stimulus money to buy a rider mower from the Toro Company to cut the grass at the Fayetteville National Cemetery in Arkansas. Now, a report on the government’s stimulus Web site improbably claims that that single lawn mower sale helped save or create 50 jobs.

So, to sum it all up, Reagan was right when he said the most feared words in the English language were, "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help you." Government is not your friend, and more government is never the answer.

The Statist Agenda of Playhouse Disney

Playhouse Disney is a block of programming targeted at preschool age children. It contains such programs as Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Handy Manny, Imagination Movers, and Special Agent Oso. It is hosted between programs by two monkey puppets named Ooh and Aah. Given the dangerous undertones of these programs, perhaps the monkeys should be named Marx and Engels.

Look at the animated program Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, for instance. Whenever Mickey and his friends are trying to go somewhere or do something, a big thug named Pete is always there to literally put up roadblocks (and tollbooths or ticket stands). Pete will demand some type of resource, like coins or beans, to let Mickey’s gang pass or otherwise engage in the activity that they want.

Mickey and his friends always dutifully fork over the dough, even if they have to go back and spend half the program scrounging up the requested resources. They never ask Pete on what authority he can charge the tax or fee or what it will be used for. The lesson to our young future taxpayers is clear: If some authoritative-sounding thug demands money, unthinkingly surrender it.

Or what about Special Agent Oso? In this animated program, children engaged in their normal daily lives and playtimes encounter problems, such as not knowing how to build a sandcastle or make frozen juice pops. An intrusive electronic surveillance system, which includes eavesdropping ladybugs, spots the children’s dilemma and transmit’s the information, via satellite, to some secret agency that dispatches Special Agent Oso to help them out.

The lessons to children here are equally clear: Being under constant covert surveillance is just fine. You will be watched only by benevolent caretakers rather than cynical bureaucrats. If something happens, a response will come not from jackbooted thugs but from cuddly panda bear agents voiced by Sean Astin.

Now, I don’t want my kids growing up warped. That’s why every Saturday morning, instead of Playhouse Disney, I plunk my three-year-old son down inches in front of the TV for another round of Red Dawn and Braveheart. I’ve never been quite so proud as the first time he chased the mailman with a fixed bayonet, screaming “Freedom!”
