As you may already know, it is a sin for a Muslim male to see any woman other than his wife naked. He must commit suicide if he does.
So next Saturday at 4 PM Eastern Time, all American women are asked to walk out of their house completely naked to help weed out any neighborhood terrorists. Circling your block for one hour is recommended for this anti-terrorist effort.
All patriotic men are to position themselves in lawn chairs in front of their house to prove they are not Muslims and to demonstrate they think its okay to see nude women other than their wife and to show support for all American women.
Since Islam also does not approve of alcohol, a cold 6-pack at your side is further proof of your anti-Muslim sentiment. The American government appreciates your efforts to root out terrorists and applauds your participation in this anti-terrorist activity.
God bless America !

BEWARE: DO NOT CLICK ON THE BELOW LINK!!!
I recently came accross your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I dont know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.
The new attack on the CIA, based on old allegations which have already been investigated, is a perfect example of that politically motivated power. Personally, I believed the attack was simply to distract the nation from seeing how destructive Obummer’s so-called health care plan really is. But perhaps it’s much more serious than that. Perhaps, what the president is really doing is using his AG to destroy his enemies, (Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld) a promise he made to his Socialist and Marxist base. Of course and as usual, while this is being done, Odumbo, with the MSM’s help, will create the illusion that his hands are clean, that he has no part in any of this, and in fact, that he “doesn’t want to look back”. And as usual, the Kool-Aid drinkers of the Left will believe that the AG would actually go forward with this "persecution", even when the president says not to. They refuse to see or believe that their president is an outright liar, and has been most of his life.
The possibilities contained in this story are truly frightening. That the people who now control all the power can make these things a reality, is (or should be) enough to give real Americans nightmares, or reach for their guns. There are things being done by this Marxist administration that are changing our country, our Constitution, our people, and our very way of life. They are for the most part, being done quietly, so as not to attract too much attention. If these policies are put into place, simply shouting at some town hall meeting won’t be enough to get our country back. It’s going to take “extreme, drastic, action”, the kind that this country hasn’t seen in hundreds of years. Or, perhaps the American people will fool me when the 2010 and 2012 elections come around. We’ll see…
'Nelson,' the salesman said to the radio.
The radio replied, 'Ricky or Willie?'
'Willie!' he continued and 'On The Road Again' came from the speakers.
Then he said, 'Ray Charles!' and in an instant ' Georgia On My Mind' replaced Willie Nelson .
I drove away happy, and for the next few days, every time I'd say, 'Beethoven,' I'd get beautiful classical music, and if I said, 'Beatles,' I'd get one of their awesome songs.
Yesterday, some guy ran a red light and nearly creamed my new truck, but I swerved in time to avoid him. I yelled, 'Ass Hole!'
Immediately the radio responded with, "Ladies and gentlemen, the President of the United States .."
Damn I love this truck......

"The Government Gassing the Geese:"
There is a pain in the pit of my heart
A heart that never gets peace
The pain I feel is of great sorrow
The government is gassing the geese.
They cannot escape cause they're molting now
There is no chance for flight
The nets drop and they can't get out
Though they try with all of their might.
Then poison gas gets pumped into a truck
And they try to breath without any luck
Ova-Control, a form of birth control
Or oiling the eggs would stop the death toll.
But they are only considered a pest
Not worthy of disturbing their nest
So this inhumane action goes on for weeks
And those who protest are considered freaks
There is a pain in the pit of my heart
And I sing a mournful song
The horror inflicted on those poor geeseCan never be right, it is WRONG!

Glenn Beck returns to Fox News Channel after a vacation on Monday with fewer companies willing to advertise on his show than when he left, part of the fallout from calling President Barack Obama a racist.
A total of 33 Fox advertisers, including Walmart, CVS Caremark, Clorox and Sprint, directed that their commercials not air on Beck's show, according to the companies and ColorofChange.org, a group that promotes political action among blacks and launched a campaign to get advertisers to abandon him. That's more than a dozen more than were identified a week ago.
I especially liked this line.
The Clorox Co., a former Beck advertiser, now says that "we do not want to be associated with inflammatory speech used by either liberal or conservative talk show hosts." The maker of bleach and household cleaners said in a statement that is has decided not to advertise on political talk shows.
Don't you just love it when American Corporations stand up and protect the sanctity of the POTUS. I mean seriously, remember when Kanye West said GWB hated black people? Remember all the companies that jumped ship then? Or how about all the advertisers that left when Keith Olberman gave his "orgasmic" journalistic attention to Obama? Oh the number of advertisers that left almost sent Ted Turner to the poor house. Obama wasn't in office yet, but those advertisers were watching, they stood up to be counted, and they rallied to keep holy the office itself.
I'll stop now, I'm turning my own stomach, pointing out the hypocritical arrogance of the left.
The families of the children who died are suing the police for not finding their children and Toyota for not encouraging the family to install a glow-in-the-dark release inside the trunk. The kicker is that this Toyota was on the property of one of the children. Its the police who failed to find the family's child on their OWN property?? And its Toyota who failed to tell the family to, I don't know, keep the trunk of their "abandoned" car closed?? And its not the family's fault for not having the police remove this so-called abandoned car from their own property?
Some of the things they're outlawing for being racist or sexist include:
whiter than white
Also, the Learning and Skills Council wants staff to “perfect” their brief rather than “master” it, while the Newcastle University has singled out the phrase “master bedroom” as being problematic.
You have to dig pretty deep on some of these to find the "problem".
However, the last paragraph of the story contains the voice of reason:
Marie Clair, spokeswoman for the Plain English Campaign, said: “Political correctness has good intentions but things can be taken to an extreme. What is really needed is a bit of common sense.”

But there are those who are bitter. Here in Honolulu about 1,000 people gathered, gave speeches, and marched in protest. They cut the 50th star from an American Flag and burned it. They believe Hawai‘i should be an independent nation.
Some things I noted about the protesters:
Their speeches were in English rather than Hawaiian (or Japanese).
They marched on paved thoroughfares built (in part) with federal dollars (not German marks).
The Islands are protected by the US Pacific Fleet, US Marines, and US Air Force.
They thrive on US tourist dollars.
They are employed (fed) by US companies.
Their homes are built of American lumber.
Their shit is carried away from their homes by pipes engineered by American ingenuity and manufactured on the US Mainland.
95% of what they eat, drink, drive, and wear is courtesy of US shipping – be it floating or flying.
Their favorite food is Spam.
That brings us to our ‘Word for the Day’:
Main Entry: un·grate·ful
1: showing no gratitude: making a poor return
2: disagreeable; also: thankless
It reminds me of the typical American liberal.
Cheers from Paradise,
This the FIRST time I've heard this from anyone at the national level. The closest I had heard was from Gerald Celente
Granted Voight is an actor first, but he's on par with Chuck Heston. Very conservative and very active in national politics.
My question is this. Is this a first call for support to drastic action?
Is Voight trolling to see what kind sentiment is out there to be caught?
Is Voight simply voicing what he's hearing?
Several small things on my plate this AM.
item 1.) THE GUN KLUTZ: Mr. Plaxico Burress, late of the NY Giants, has agreed to a 2 Year prison sentence for accidentally SHOOTING HIMSELF in the leg in November of last year.
I find several things odd with this case. The speed of his trial for one thing, it's NYC for crying out loud. (Spider, is the court system always this quick in NYC?) All I keep hearing is how backed up the courts are there, and I've been hearing it for years.
Also, Roger Goodell, NFL Commissioner, waited until after the sentencing to suspend Burress. What, Huh, WHAT!?! Burress had already admitted he did what happened. When he did that Gooddell should have dumped him. As with reinstating Michael Vick, we continue to glorify the Gang Bangin' Thug Life in America.
item 2.) THE GUN NUT: I got it back through familial channels, that my own mother is afraid that I'm becoming a "Gun Nut". Although she too thinks the country is in sorry shape and sorrier hands, she doesn't think shooting someone is the answer. She questions my new found gun nuttery on...the internet...
"Mom, I have no intention of shooting anyone."
item 3.) THE NRA: I used to be a member, times got tough, I let my membership drop, then I kept saying next month, next payday, when the Tax Return comes, blah, blah, blah. I got a call last night from the NRA, they are looking to former members to get re-involved with them. I re-signed for 5 Years. Not bragging, just putting my money where my mouth is. Is YOUR membership up to date? (I know several of you are Lifetime Members, I'm waiting to hit the Powerball Jackpot for that)

Some say he'll hand over his crown to his young wife, who, unlike Mary-Jo, apparently has managed to survive her relationship with fat Teddy. Others say he may choose his nephew Joe. You know Joe, he's Hugo Chavez's little boy. Or, maybe his cousin Smith, the rapist. One thing you can be sure of is, which ever of these human virus's is pulled from the Kennedy nest, the very liberal dupes of the People's Republic of Massachusetts will go along, as always. I hear the major cable "news" channels are already planning several days to cover this "earth shattering" event. Maybe they'll actually show his foot hitting that bucket? Hey, what if the black guy with the AR-15 shows up? Now that would be entertainment!

The marriage is most likely over.
She's decided that HE needs help, that until he gets rid of the anger issues (like tearing up her lap top with a hammer) she will not "..expose herself or the children to that level of TERROR...". She on the other hand will seek no help, as she is fine.
I'm hoping that her parents have plenty of time, energy and money. They're going to need it.
I'm going to go blow up the internet.
Many of you may remember my tale of the "World of Warcraft" addicted daughter-in-law, from two years ago. She had been playing for 18 to 20 hrs per day, doing little or nothing else, save eating and sleeping, she went 4 or 5 days sometimes on a few naps and if you stop to take a shower, you're NOT playing.
Huge blow up when I went for the family sanctioned intervention, game cut off, screaming, yelling, cops,ambulances, psych wards, it WAS NOT pretty. But she did quit.
This is my older son's wife, 32 years old, 3 kids, they've been married for 11 1/2 years, during all of which he's been a happy little squid, in Uncle Sugar's Big Grey Canoe Club. (for you non-military types, he's a Navy Lifer-Dog)
At one point they were BOTH playing this idiot game, to the exclusion of taking care of ANYTHING, including their kids. It's as psychologically addicting as anything I've ever seen. Coke or crack.
My son was due to rotate back to sea duty this fall, he re-enlisted and had orders in hand and a move date set. Unknown to us, or her parents, she was playing WoW again and was back to the same old habits. The deal between them was, when the final approved orders come, she'd quit playing, and clean, and pack, and make all preperations for getting under way.
She quit playing after he took a hammer to her computer. And she got underway to her parents house, here in Raleighwood, with 3 kids in tow.
While she played he did everything, or the kids stepped and fetched for her. My son would do the clothes, cooking, cleaning, etc., plus he worked. The kids helped around the house. Which is not bad for them, but she just played WoW. When she realized she was going to have to keep house and raise kids alone while he was at sea, she bolted home to Mommie's and Daddie's house. (her parents are enablers, as is my son as an ex-addict)
We've seen her, she is not well. The game may be off, but she has not checked back in. She told us yesterday that she quit playing, by her own will, cold turkey. When any of us remind her of the facts, and the actual history, she continues her "...me, me, me..." monologue, as if no one had ever spoken to her. We expect a serious uphill battle, and most of us think she's going to wind up in a resident psych facility.
The point of this, is NOT to garner love and puppys from you my friends. I want you to go to you kid's, husband's, wife's, family member's, lover's computer and smash that MFer into dust. Or, if your crowd is like some I know, it's texting, sexting, Twitter. Run your car over that cell phone. If the kids have a phone for "emergencies", turn off the text message ability. 1500 texts to Susie and Tommy, about Mrs Snootly's 11th grade English test or freakin Sanjaya from 'merican Idle, is NOT an "emergency".
Electronic addiction is as real as anything out there. Someone you know has it. And it's ruining this segment of their live.
The worst part of all this is that my 8 and 11 y/o grandsons can't throw, kick or catch a ball, or frisbee, can't ride a bike, they are scared to death of bugs, dogs, thunder, SWEAT. After 15 minutes in my backyard, they're bored and want to come in. They cried when my wife took them to the park on Monday. They were tired and sweaty and wanted to go into the air conditioning, after a whole 45 minutes. "...Grandma, it's not healthy to be in the sun or to get all hot and sweaty..."
Guaranteed, you know these kids too, or have them in your family. Help them now, make 'em sweat and get skinned knees and skeeter bites. My experience is that life is much more about sweat, skinned knees and bugs, than it is about A/C and easy tireless fun.

For your reading pleasure and by all means, DO NOT skip the San Fran, liberal, hand-wringing comments. And these people are so wrong about this sentiment being a "vocal minority", that it's laughable. And I'd love to know where a certain aircraft engineer was during this time. Hmmmm?
Ladies and germs, I give you the United States Constitution in action.

Now that the Left is getting over the shock of seeing the American people actually wake-up and object to the Marxist takeover of their government, Leftists are taking out their playbook and employing some of their favorite old tricks like, intimidation, lies, threats, boycotts, harassment, and outright violence. We've already seen what their lies and smear tactics can do to totally innocent people, and we also know the MSM is right there, waiting to help them in any and every way they can.
We've seen it all before, so we shouldn't be surprised to see what's coming. Remember, Odumbo is their president, and it's their congress that's in control, and they're not about to give-up any of that power and control. As i've said before, this so-called health care debate is not about health care, it's about control. They want the power to not only control the lives of everyone in this country, but how we live our lives, what we eat, what we drive, how we raise our kids, what our children are taught, and who will make-up the future population of this country. Decades ago, Demoncrats and the Left addicted blacks to govt. handouts. What they got in return was about 97% of the black vote. They are in the process of doing the same for the 25-40 Million so-called hispanic illegals in this country. That's a whole lot of votes which translates into a whole lot of power and control...

I recently sent out J. Q. Publics blurb, from under the "Lock and Load" posting, to some friends and family, some of whom evidently sent it on. I've been sparring via e-mail with someone who refuses to come in here for the past two days. Their main complaint, we're the problem in America. We're all just, ignorant, gun toting, war mongering, racists, and he / she knows this from reading our archives. I pointed out that I'm most likely low man on the formal school attendance and graduation rolls, and even I have some college credits. Our blatherings just prove our gross ignorance.
I asked for chapter and verse, they couldn't give examples.
The ultimate accusation?
This blog is a sham, cooked up by typical, conservative, detractors of BOHICA, who are anti-Obamacare/ It's all been assembled recently, so as to look like we'd been here several years, complete with the fake archives. That's right, the 10 or 12 of us, gun nuts all, post a serious threat to the President of the United States. Annie's Inferno is just another of "thousands of bogus blogs sprouting up to fight against the greatest president ever". I guess if we'd lie about a being a real blog, we'd lie about going to college too. Jeeee Zusss, I'd hate to be that paranoid.
The point of this posting?
It is my opinion that our liberal foes are even more desperate than we thought if THEY think we just sprouted from the ground, like magic mushroom after a South Florida, August rain squall. What say you my friends, are they loosing it? Do they really think they are about to loose the last of all that good will they had last year? And when someone is that scared, shouldn't you attack them? They're already rattled, isn't that the perfect opportunity?
Gun Toting ready to attack them, Schteveo

New York City's largest municipal union is endorsing City Comptroller and Democratic front-runner William Thompson Jr. in the coming mayoral race, posing a major political setback for Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
District Council 37 is backing Thompson Jr., an endorsement that will give Thompson much-needed help against the billionaire incumbent, who has already spent more than $36 million on his third-term bid.
Meanwhile, a July Quinnipiac University poll showed Thompson making up ground on Bloomberg, trailing 47 to 37 percent. Bloomberg had a 54 to 32 percent lead in a poll taken the previous month.
Bloomberg out is a GREAT start for turning the country around. And if Bloomy is a Republican, I'm a gazelle.
News outlets that are focusing on the incendiary rhetoric of conservatives outside President Obama's town hall meeting Tuesday ignored the incendiary rhetoric -- and even violence -- of liberals outside an appearance by former President George W. Bush in 2002.
When Bush visited Portland, Ore., for a fundraiser, protesters stalked his motorcade, assailed his limousine and stoned a car containing his advisers. Chanting "Bush is a terrorist!", the demonstrators bullied passers-by, including gay softball players and a wheelchair-bound grandfather with multiple sclerosis.
One protester even brandished a sign that seemed to advocate Bush's assassination. The man held a large photo of Bush that had been doctored to show a gun barrel pressed against his temple.
"BUSH: WANTED, DEAD OR ALIVE," read the placard, which had an X over the word "ALIVE."
Another poster showed Bush's face with the words: "F--- YOU, MOTHERF---ER!"
A third sign urged motorists to "HONK IF YOU HATE BUSH." A fourth declared: "CHRISTIAN FASCISM," with a swastika in place of the letter S in each word.
Although reporters from numerous national news organizations were traveling with Bush and witnessed the protest, none reported that protesters were shrieking at Republican donors epithets like "Slut!" "Whore!" and "Fascists!"
Frank Dulcich, president and CEO of Pacific Seafood Group, had a cup of liquid thrown into his face, and then was surrounded by a group of menacing protesters, including several who wore masks. Donald Tykeson, 75, who had multiple sclerosis and was confined to a wheelchair, was blocked by a thug who threatened him.
Protesters slashed the tires of several state patrol cruisers and leapt onto an occupied police car, slamming the hood and blocking the windshield with placards. A female police officer was knocked to the street by advancing protesters, badly injuring her wrist.
What kills me, is that even FOX, We Report, You Decide FOX, says it's conservatives who are doing this. Well, everything I've seen shows Democrats, identifying themselves as Democrats, yelling just as loud, if not louder.
I'm glad that we have the guns and the MSM just has wave lenghts.

Now (and not surprisingly) comes this report from the Southern Poverty Law Center, an organization that is a very definite part of the far-Left, which warns of the rise of "Right-wing militia groups". I've always wondered why the SPLC has never issued a warning about Left-wing anarchist and terrorist groups, but that's just me. Could this "report" be true? Perhaps, to some degree. Could it be used by this govt. as an excuse for tighter and more oppressive regulations and laws? (see: controls) Absolutely! A report like this could serve as a foundation on which this govt. could build almost anything it wants. Gun control. A fairness doctrine to squelch "opposition lies". Laws controlling movement and speech. etc.
The American people are being pushed harder than ever before in our history, and in a direction that few want to go. In spite of what the Left and the MSM have been working so hard to achieve, America is not the Socialist, Marxist, utopia that some see it as, or wish it to become. Are some of those Leftists trying very hard to make their wish become reality? You bet they are! And are there some Americans who are ready and willing to fight to keep us from that fate? I sure hope so!

But who's computer brain are we talking about? Stephen Hawking? Read on.
There are only a handful of scientific revolutions that would really change the world. An immortality pill would be one. A time machine would be another.
Faster-than-light travel, allowing the stars to be explored in a human lifetime, would be on the shortlist, too.
To my mind, however, the creation of an artificial mind would probably trump all of these - a development that would throw up an array of bewildering and complex moral and philosophical quandaries. Amazingly, it might also be within reach.
For while time machines, eternal life potions and Star Trek-style warp drives are as far away as ever, a team of scientists in Switzerland is claiming that a fully-functioning replica of a human brain could be built by 2020.
They'd better be careful of just what kind of brain computer they build. We've all seen computers go crazy in movies. HAL9000 in 2001, Colossus in the Forbin Project, and any number of robots run amok in Hollywood scifi flicks.
Suppose they create a computer that fits the current age?. What if, instead of a Hawking model, some nerd builds the worlds fastest thinking...Paris Hilton?
"OMG, I just got a packet from that hunky server down the hall, He's HOT, he always sends his bytes in such great stacked order, did you see that new laptop in accounting, what a trashy bitch, she's all red and shiny, and there is no way her 17 inch screen is "natural", totally after market..."
Scary proposition that.
Different people have very different reactions to Pres. Barack Obama. Those who listen to his rhetoric are often inspired, while those who follow what he actually does are often appalled.
New York and Chicago have both recently had their coldest June in generations. If they had had their hottest month, it would have been trumpeted from the media 24/7 by “global warming” zealots. But the average surface temperature of the Earth has not changed in more than a decade, according to the Cato Institute.
Many years ago, there was a comic-book character who could say the magic word “shazam” and turn into Captain Marvel, a character with powers like Superman’s. Today, you can say the magic word “diversity” and turn reverse discrimination into social justice.
I would rather see politicians hanged than see their children smeared.
Someone pointed out that blaming economic crises on “greed” is like blaming plane crashes on gravity. Certainly planes wouldn’t crash if it weren’t for gravity. But when thousands of planes fly millions of miles every day without crashing, explaining why a particular plane crashed because of gravity gets you nowhere. Neither does talking about “greed,” which is constant like gravity.
Political ideologies are fairy tales for adults.What did we learn from the “beer summit” on the White House lawn, except that Vice President Joe Biden doesn’t drink alcoholic beverages? Considering the many gaffes that the vice president has made while cold sober, the thought of an intoxicated Joe Biden boggles the mind.
Seeing children repeating the cant they have been taught is not only depressing in itself, it provides a depressing preview of the future, when those children become voting adults, with a habit of reaching conclusions after hearing only one side of an issue.
Since no one seems overly concerned about putting a racist on the Supreme Court — provided it is a politically correct racist — the moral of the story seems to be that if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, that doesn’t matter if it coos like a dove at Senate confirmation hearings.
I hate seeing a referee keep giving warnings to a boxer for low blows. Taking a point away is the only kind of warning that is likely to make the low blows stop. The rules of boxing don’t say you are entitled to one free low blow, much less repeated low blows.
Perhaps the scariest aspect of our times is how many people think in talking points, rather than in terms of real-world consequences.
Over the years, unions in the private sector have been declining, while unions in the public sector have been thriving. The United Automobile Workers are getting a big return on their investment in the election of Barack Obama because the government takeover of General Motors makes the UAW more like a public-sector union, whose demands can be met at the taxpayers’ expense.
Recently I was foolish enough to try to reason with an environmentalist. But it became obvious that he had his mind made up and didn’t want to hear any evidence to the contrary. The pope is more likely to have read Karl Marx than an environmentalist is to have read even a single book that criticized environmentalism.
With Velcro and other modern adhesives available, can’t someone design a boxing glove that doesn’t require fights to be stopped in the middle of a round so that loose tape can be repaired? Often the break in the action changes the whole tempo of the fight and can affect the outcome.
How long will it be before the public gets tired of the little know-it-all sermonettes by Barack Obama — especially since nothing that he is doing is actually working?
The 150-year prison sentence for Bernie Madoff has implications that go far beyond this particular swindler. There was a time when a simple life sentence would have kept him behind bars. But today the practice of over-stating the sentences that will actually be served — in order to soothe the public — has gotten so widespread that a ridiculous sentence like 150 years has to be given, in order to try to make sure he won’t be back on the streets again.

Well, in Mexifornia, you give them "tax payer funded student loans"! How silly of you not to have guessed. Apparently, the theory is, why force these kids to lay out their own money to get stoned, when you, the nation of fools, can pay for them. Not surprisingly, a plan like this could only come from the twisted mind of a Mexifornia Demoncrat, with the full support of, (you guessed it) the ACLU. It seems i missed the page in the Constitution that says, college kids have a right to get wasted at your expense. When passed, will this be the first major step in the legalization of drugs? I don't know, but if (when) that does happen, you just know it'll start out there in the Twilight Zone...

The White House strategy of turning supporters into snitches when they see "fishy" information about the health care debate may run afoul of the law, legal experts say.
"The White House is in bit of a conundrum because of this privacy statute that prohibits the White House from collecting data and storing it on people who disagree with it," Judge Andrew Napolitano, a FOX News analyst, said Friday.
"There's also a statute that requires the White House to retain all communications that it receives. It can't try to rewrite history by pretending it didn't receive anything," he said.
"If the White House deletes anything, it violates one statute. If the White House collects data on the free speech, it violates another statute."
Napolitano was referring to the Privacy Act of 1974, which was passed after the Nixon administration used federal agencies to illegally investigate individuals for political purposes. Enacted after Richard Nixon's resignation in the Watergate scandal, the statute generally prohibits any federal agency from maintaining records on individuals exercising their right to free speech.
The White House has been under fire since it posted a blog on Tuesday that asked supporters to e-mail any "fishy" information seen on the Web or received electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
"There is a lot of disinformation about health insurance reform out there," the blog said, adding that "since we can't keep track of all of them here at the White House, we're asking for your help."
And the funniest part, the DEMOCRATS put this legal mess into affect because they feared Republican Administrations rolling over peoples rights. I'm sure some left leaning talking head will say it's Napolitano's misunderstanding of the law.
You can't see me, but I'm laughing hysterically.

In most of the worlds countries, including our own, (or what used to be "our" country) this is the kind of stuff that breeds revolutions. These are the things that force good people to pick up guns, torches, and ropes, and take to the streets, although i seriously doubt DC would have enough trees to go around. Personally, i'm very surprised that enough Americans are making demands on their elected crooks to have the Obamunists scared. Yes, they're scared. First, because they're not in the habit of being made to explain what it is they're doing, and second, they know the larger this movement gets, the less control they'll have over the sheeple. Remember, whether it's health care, or the so-called stimulus, or the environment, or the economy, what it's "really" all about, is control!

Last year, lawmakers excoriated the CEOs of the Big Three automakers for traveling to Washington, D.C., by private jet to attend a hearing about a possible bailout of their companies.
But apparently Congress is not philosophically averse to private air travel: At the end of July, the House approved nearly $200 million for the Air Force to buy three elite Gulfstream jets for ferrying top government officials and Members of Congress.
The Air Force had asked for one Gulfstream 550 jet (price tag: about $65 million) as part of an ongoing upgrade of its passenger air service.
But the House Appropriations Committee, at its own initiative, added to the 2010 Defense appropriations bill another $132 million for two more airplanes and specified that they be assigned to the D.C.-area units that carry Members of Congress, military brass and top government officials.
Because the Appropriations Committee viewed the additional aircraft as an expansion of an existing Defense Department program, it did not treat the money for two more planes as an earmark, and the legislation does not disclose which Member had requested the additional money.
Proving yet again that the elected worms consider themselves above us and worthy of exceptional treatment.

In a few weeks, the Treasury Department’s czar of executive pay will have to answer this $100 million question: Should Andrew J. Hall get his bonus?
Mr. Hall, the 58-year-old head of Phibro, a small commodities trading firm in Westport, Conn., is due for a nine-figure payday, HIS CUT OF PROFITS from a characteristically aggressive year of bets in the oil market.
There is little doubt that Mr. Hall is owed the money under his contract. The problem is that his contract is with Citigroup, which was saved with roughly $45 billion in taxpayer aid.
Corporate pay has become a live grenade in the aftermath of the largest series of corporate bailouts in American history. In March, when the American International Group, rescued at vast taxpayer expense, was to give out $165 million in bonuses, Congress moved to constrain the payouts, and protesters showed up at the homes of several executives.
OK, why shouldn't Mr. Hall get his bonus? First let me say he was evidently smart enough to MAKE money for his company. Wasn't that his job? Isn't that his contract, a share by percentage of PROFITS? Profits, a feat NOT accomplished at CitiCorp, or elsewhere, as a whole, but some of those executive bonuses got paid anyway.
This is precisely why the government should have stayed the hell out of this mess. There is no place in American business for the government to decide which contracts get honored and which do not. IF the government had not stepped in at Citi, the parts of that company that were insolvent would NOT have been able to pay those high bonuses. There would have been no money for it, as there was not only no profit, there was damned little operating money left. Those non-operating parts would have gone away, to be replaced by other companies / entities.
As it is, the government has allowed those worthless sections to remain, with their less than worthless CEOs and Boards in tact to steal more money. It's galling!
Would the country have been harmed immediately and deeply by a huge financial collapse like in 1929? Most probably, but it's preferable to the slow, crawling, socialist death they've created for us on Capitol Hill. A second mortgage is not the answer to not being able to pay the first mortgage. Unless you live inside the Beltway, that is.

NYC grand jury indicts Burress on weapons charges
Former New York Giants star Plaxico Burress was indicted by a grand jury on weapons charges after shooting himself in the thigh at a Manhattan night club last winter, prosecutors announced Monday.
The indictment charged the 31-year-old Burress with two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of reckless endangerment, Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau said.
Burress' former teammate, Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce, was not indicted for his role in the incident.
"A grand jury applied the law to the facts of this case," Morgenthau said.
No one else is likely to face charges in the case, Morgenthau said. He said some of the others involved in the incident "showed first-degree bad judgement," but their actions didn't rise to the level of a crime.
Burress was at the Latin Quarter nightclub Nov. 29 when he shot himself in the thigh after a gun tucked in the waist of his track pants slipped down his leg and fired. Authorities say Pierce, who was with Burress at the club, drove his then-teammate to the hospital and took the gun to Burress' home in Totowa, N.J.
The gun was not licensed. No one called police to report the gunshot wound, as required by law: Not the players, nor NFL officials, nor the hospital where Burress was treated.
Hmmm...nobody called the police? Maybe they couldn't remember the number for 9-1-1?

SEATTLE — A Seattle bank teller has lost his job because he ran down a would-be bank robber and held him until police arrived.
Jim Nicholson, who worked at a Key Bank branch, says he understands the bank's policy that employees comply with robbery demands and avoid dangerous confrontations. But he tells The Seattle Times that his instincts took over when the man demanded money during the Tuesday incident.
Nicholson says he tried to grab the man, then chased him several blocks before knocking him down with help from a passer-by. The man turned out to be unarmed.
The 30-year-old Nicholson was fired Thursday. Key Bank officials declined to comment, but Seattle police and the FBI say they advise tellers against acting against robbers. Instead, police Sgt. Sean Whitcomb says, they should be good witnesses and comply with demands unless their personal safety is in jeopardy.
Jim Nicholson is the type of guy I would gladly hire. His current (Ex) boss is the type of person who would never rate as human enough to work for me. The pussification continues. Damned liberal dipshits are anti-human morons. If they don't want men to be men they better adopt a faggot-only policy. If I had an account in that bank, I would close it first thing tomorrow. I don't want pussies being responsible for my hard earned wages.
