Of course, his insult to democracy also required the help of his pals in the Leftist MSM, and his political base, the socialists, Marxists, and communists of Manhattan who control much of NYC's politics. You see, everyone here knows that no matter what political hat Mike may be wearing at the moment, (Demoncrat, to Republican, and now to "Independent" ) he is, and always has been, a life-long, hard-core, liberal Demoncrat! It's that fact, and his membership in the MSM, that get the mayor a free pass from NYC's Leftist media.
Is this how democracy is supposed to work? Does political control of this country, and every aspect of the lives of it's people, simply go to the highest bidder? If you look at our corrupt, incompetent political system, whether it's local, state, or federal, the answer is obviously, yes! It's not the most qualified. It's not the most honest. It's not the most knowledgeable. It comes down to who can distract the weak, mindless voters of this country with the best commercials. If you doubt that, you're not taking in enough oxygen...

PIG is thankful that Senator Mary Landrieu removed all doubt from our minds. We always suspected ‘it’, but she sealed the ‘I’m a political WHORE’ deal, when she named her price, then sold herself to Whorehouse Harry Reid for $300,000,000.
PIG is thankful that ACORN has finally ‘come out’ regarding its support for American pimps who need help importing jailbait Latin American hookers.
PIG is thankful for Ayn Rand who saw where were heading 50 years ago, in her eerily prophetic novel ‘Atlas Shrugged’. It’s not her fault that we the people ignored her warning until it was too late to stop the Marxist insanity.
PIG is thankful for the Mayans whose December 21, 2009 doomsday prophecy spares us from four more years of the America hating, Dumbo-eared, Marxist in the Oval Office.
PIG is thankful for Brit Language Nazis who showed us the errors of our ways. Until they came along, we had no idea how culturally insensitive, and destructive, vile terms like "good afternoon" and "good evening" really are.
PIG is thankful for the computer hackers who published those smoking gun e-mails which exposed the blatant bullshit being spread by the global warming activists at the University of East Anglia Climate Research Unit.
PIG is thankful for that Hot Air Buffoon, Al Gore, who recently hit us with the stunning news that Earth’s interior temperature is "millions of degrees", and thus similar to the core of the Sun. That means we’re not living on a rocky planet, but are, in reality, living on a second Sun. Thanks for setting us straight, Fatass.
PIG is thankful that the DeathCare bill which is stinking up Capitol Hill has San Fran "Botox Bitch" Nan's best interests at heart. If that tax on elective cosmetic surgery and procedures doesn't make Stoneface kick her botox habit, the FSOP will be FORCED to wire her Commie ass up to our 50,000 volt power supply. BZZZZZZT. Problem solved.
PIG is thankful that the suits at NBC put all their steaming Obamunist turds - Keith Assholeman, Rachel Madcow, Chris ‘The Tingler’ Matthews, Ed Schitz, Joe Scumboro, et al - in one cable blight crapper: MSNBC. Thanks to the miracles of modern entertainment technology, we can easily, electronically, flush all of them out of our misery.
PIG is thankful for the inspiring example of Glenn Beck, who has shown us that being clinically bonkers need not be a fatal, career ending, flaw. Holy Howard Beale, Batman!
PIG would be profoundly thankful for any rational adult who gives Barry a swift kick in the ass, the next time THE ONE bows to a hereditary ruler.
PIG is taking thankful into consideration that the Demoncrat lunatics whom the American chad punchers have, in their vast ‘wisdom', put in charge of the D. C. Beltway asylum OWN full responsibility for flushing America's strength, prosperity and inalienable liberty down a crapper called Socialism. We'd have our thankful locked and loaded, if we could convince ourselves that the 'Nanny State lite' Elephant Clan was that much better.
PIG is differently-thankful for Barack "O'Dumbo" Obama whose oversized ears seem inexplicably dysfunctional when it comes to detecting sounds - especially approval-ratings tanking blowback from we the people over his Nanny State on steroids antics. Despite their deficiencies when it comes to hearing, O'Dumbo's ears provide enough cooling shade - on each side - for a family of four, plus a score of Czars.
PIG is no bullshit thankful that we the people are shaking off our Obamunist funk and peaceably assembling at town meetings, tea parties, and marches on our nation's capitol in defense of our beseiged inalienable individual liberty. It's the least we the people can do to thank the men and women who put their lives on the line in defense of our liberty...

Personally, i would really love to have a "true" list of who was there, not just the names cleared by the WH. Of course, there were some of the heavyweight (see: big donors $$) commies from Commiewood. Also, some of the MSM's top Obamunists. And Gayle King was there also. She's the black, Obamunist lesbian who was sleeping with Oprah. (apparently Oprah is out now. Getting "too close" to Odumbo (or Michelle) perhaps? Hmmm..) Gayle you see, is now a celebrity. And just what is her claim to fame? Well, she's a black lesbian who slept with Oprah, and supported Odumbo! Nuff said?
And just look at Michelle all dressed-up in her fancy ($$$$$) gown. I wonder how many Americans could have fed their families this Thanksgiving on what that dress cost. Oh wait. It didn't cost her anything, did it. I also wonder how long it took her staff to hide her natural i hate America and White people attitude from showing? I guess enough make-up and fancy clothes can hide anything.
At a time when Millions of Americans are out of work, losing their homes, behind in their bills, watching their life-savings disappear, and having trouble feeding their families, was this really necessary? What kind of a message does this send? Years ago,(that would be pre-PC) there was a saying here which was, "nigger rich". It refereed to people who were usually on welfare, lived in run-down houses, couldn't/wouldn't feed their families or pay their bills, yet drove new Cadillacs and wore fancy clothes. I wonder why that thought came to mind when i read this story. Hmmm...

Three years ago, Best Buy announced it would no longer use the word 'Christmas' in its seasonal advertising because, they claimed, it was disrespectful to other holidays to use a specific holiday in its advertising: "We are going to continue to use the term holiday because there are several holidays throughout that time period, and we certainly need to be respectful of all of them."
All right, so explain this!
Back in '93, a couple of days after the WTC was bombed, my partner and i were hurriedly transferred from the Brooklyn Homicide Sqd. to a newly-formed joint task force comprised of the NYPD, FBI, and the NYS Police. The large team was made-up of people with real-world, street experience, not PC'ized desk jockeys and paper pushers. The consensus then was, this was an act of war, why are we involved. PC was not a factor back then, especially not with this team. We were all aware of Mooselamb terrorists active in the US, so it didn't take us very long to figure out who and what to look for. We did what we had to do, and the results were in the news. (well, some of what we did) That was then. This is now.
Today, the FBI is a very different agency. They have become very susceptible to political pressure, especially from the current Leftist govt. In other words, they are awash in political correctness, as are most government agencies. That means they will be much less effective, because they're being controlled by Leftist politicians who are putting on this show for political reasons. I have close friends who are still active in the Bureau. They have served many years and are sick over the changes they see.
Here's something else to think about. Thanks to some incredibly stupid, asinine public statements by Chairman Odumbo, there's a realistic chance these terrorists could walk away! Don't laugh just yet. This is NYC, with our Leftist judges, ultra-liberal juries, and Leftist defense lawyers coming from all over the country to protect the terrorists! Did Odumbo make those statements out of sheer stupidity and his total lack of any experience? Or, was he laying the groundwork for an acquittal, thereby sending a message to his Mooselamb brothers around the world that "we're sensitive to your plight so please don't hurt us any more "...
some people just spend a wee bit too much time on line and, well, just see for yourselves!

What amuses me about all this global warming crap is, here are a bunch of professional liars telling the American people, (and everyone else) simply give us "total and complete control over every single aspect of your life", and we can change the weather! How would you respond if someone walked up to you on the street and said that?
Everyone knows that fat Al has delusions of grandeur, one of the reasons Bubba and Hitlary hated him, and still do. Even they knew how dangerous this nitwit is. You see, Al sees himself becoming the saviour of the world via his scam. Problem is, Chairman Odumbo has his eyes on that same title. In fact, in his Mooselamb head, he, and his Kool-Aid gulping worshipers, believes he already is! Apparently, to become an icon of the far-Left, one must have delusions of grandeur, be totally detached from reality, and be a world-class liar. These traits are present in both Odumbo and fat Al, (and in abundance) which must confuse the hell out of Leftists...

The picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress levels at St. Mary's Hospital. Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A closely monitored, scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins. The more differences a person finds between the dolphins, the more stress that person is experiencing.
Look at the photograph and if you find more than one or two differences you may want to take a vacation.
I'm not sure how stressed out you have to be to see the dolphins. But I like cows so I posted these two.
Gang accused of killing to sell human fat
LIMA (Reuters) – Peruvian police said on Thursday they had broken up a gang that allegedly killed dozens of people and sold their fat to buyers who used it to make cosmetics.
Four Peruvians were arrested on suspicion of kidnapping, murder and trafficking in human fat.
The group stored the fat it collected in used soda and water bottles, which police showed reporters.
"We have people detained who have declared and stated how they murdered people with the aim being to extract their fat in rudimentary labs and sell it," said Police Commander Angel Toldeo.
Note to self: "Self, don't vacation in Peru without first loosing about 100 lbs."

Well, the fact that one is wearing a bomb vest might give you a clue. But what if that terrorist removes his/her vest. Then what? Is he/she still a radical terrorist? Apparently, if you're the CIA and you don't see the vest, you welcome them into the main agency responsible for protecting this country from blood-thirsty, Amerika-hating, radical, Mooselambs. And of course, you believe them when they say they're "the peaceful kind", like the Ft. Hood terrorist did before he started shooting.
Now to a rational person, the above sounds like a really crazy idea. But if you're part of the anti-American government in DC, it makes perfect sense. Do you remember that saying from The Godfather II movie? ("Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer "). Actually, i don't think Michael Corleone was referring to bomb vest-wearing Mooselambs. The Mafia, unlike the CIA, is not that stupid. Remember, this is the same CIA that was gutted by Bubba and Hitlary in the early 90's, and filled with Left-thinking followers. As a result, people deep inside the agency were responsible for endless leaks to the MSM during the GWB presidency. While i'm sure most of the people at CIA are highly dedicated, brave, and patriotic, most is not all. What, if anything, does PC, political agenda, and our current Marxist government have to do with this decision? And have the folks at CIA never heard of language courses?
The concept itself is so stupid and assumptive that it defies description. But there is one line in this story that is so typically left coast, liberal, anti-American, that I had to make this quick post.

Seattle police said an officer checking out a report of an assault in the 600 block of 7th Avenue late Monday came across a man impaled on top of a metal fence, screaming for help.
Firefighters pulled the man from the metal spike and took him to Harborview Medical Center.
Police thought the man may have been involved in the earlier assault call so they went to interview him at the hospital. There, police said, the man told them that he was not being chased but thought he was a ninja and believed he could leap the fence.
So now you ask yourself, “Self,” you ask, “Why did Jimbo post this?” Simple, ladies and germs: Because it reminds me SO much of the Post Turtle in Chief. Completely delusional, without the skills he imagines he has, and soon to be impaled by his shortcomings. Next year he will loose his congress. In 2012, he will loose his job. Count on it. Just like this Seattle “ninja” – this “president” will win a Darwin Award.

Now i'm not questioning the actions or the bravery of these fine officers. But, could the military's penchant for political correctness and diversity, no doubt a result of the current Leftist govt.'s influence, have played a role in announcing that it was only the female officer who brought down the terrorist? Is the PC-virus that deeply ingrained in our military? If this is the case, then i find it as troubling as knowing there are radical Mooselambs wearing the uniform of our country. I would assume that once they pull the bullets out of the towelhead, the question should be answered as to who's gun fired the rounds that struck him. Personally, i would also send them both to the practice range, since he lived...
Last night, five minutes into his show, he told his vast audience it would be his last show. Personally, i was stunned because i know how CNN values his ratings. ($$) But, i'm also aware of how much serious pressure CNN has been under from the highly-organized Marxist groups who control the illegal immigrant movement. They've seen Dobbs as their #1 target because he has exposed them to the entire nation.
A couple of weeks ago, someone fired several shots at him and his wife while they were standing in front of their NJ home. Could it have been connected to his stance on illegals? IMO, yes, but i don't believe that's what made him quit. Is he tired of being the only non-Left voice at CNN? I don't believe so, since he knows he's the #1 guy there. Or perhaps, since many people have been asking him to seek high political office, could that have been the reason? I doubt that also, since it would not have made him quit, on-air, right in the middle of his show.
I would imagine the full story will be coming out soon. Since he's been a strong critic of the Left-wing MSM, i'm sure they'll do all they can to get the facts out, especially if they make Dobbs look bad or wrong in some way...

For our present govt. and many of it's agencies, what we're seeing is not a pretty picture because it's forcing them to deal with reality, something that has become very "un-PC". You see, in 21st century Amerika, it seems we are ruled by two ideas, political correctness and diversity. And counter ideas have been deemed "anti-social" by the Leftists who rule us. As i've said many times, our addiction to political correctness will be our downfall. Not terrorism, but PC! In a short period of time, it has changed how we speak, how we view the world and each other, how we think, how we vote, and how we respond to serious threats to our very lives. PC has become the new Kool-Aid.
It is now becoming clear that political correctness, and the numbing fear of possibly offending someone or something, may be the reason the Mooselamb TERRORIST was able to slaughter our warriors at Ft. Hood. Perhaps, had the totally-PC'ized clowns at the top levels of our military shown more concern for our troops than they do for being appropriately PC, those brave soldiers might still be alive today. Maybe, if the PC'ized pansies who run the FBI, the CIA, and the Dept. of Homeland Stupidity, been more concerned with protecting this country, than they are with protecting their careers, those fine warriors at Ft. Hood would be hugging their loved ones now, instead of looking up at dirt.
The American sheeple must rise up and "demand" answers as to how this was allowed to happen. They must also demand to know why there are more like-minded Mooselambs in our military, a fact that the TERRORIST killer himself warned them about. And, they must demand that people at the top be made to pay for this outrage. Not just some govt. clerk somewhere, but the fools at the top, else this will become a common occurrence...

9PM scheduled execution. Get out your Tivo's.
Personally, i believe anyone convicted of a violent crime against a child, and that would include sexual abuse of any kind, to any degree, should be summarily executed. Unfortunately, the powers-that-be don't have the common sense to put me in charge of such matters. If they did, such crimes would cease in a week!
On the other hand, there are also many cases where the mere allegation of such a crime, even a false allegation, is enough to totally destroy someones life. (i've seen it happen) That they are later proved to be innocent doesn't help. The "mark" is carried for life. BE AWARE!!

George W. Bush Secretly Visits Fort Hood Victims:
The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News.
Former President George W. Bush and his wife Laura secretly visited Fort Hood last night and spent "considerable time" consoling those who were wounded in Thursday's shooting spree, Fox News has learned.
The Bushes entered and departed the sprawling military facility in secret, having told the base commander they did not want press coverage of their visit, a source told Fox News. The couple was described as "deeply concerned" about military families on Fort Hood after Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan allegedly opened fire on soldiers and civilians, killing 13 and wounding 30. The Bushes, who have a 1,600-acre property known as Prairie Chapel Ranch less than 30 miles from Fort Hood in central Texas, spent between one and two hours visiting the wounded and their families.
And the response from yo president?
Some votes haven't gone well recently. So that's it? All this "bravery" and "chest pounding" is nothing more than a charade?
Go ahead. Give up. Give in.
I'll do it for the children.
June, 15 1961 / November 9, 1989
July 4, 1776 / November 7, 2009
The first set is the life span of the Berlin Wall.
Tomorrow is the anniversary of the Berlin Wall coming down. It was, for 38 years of my life, the very symbol of oppression. A barrier between those of us who lived in freedom, and those who were under the control of an overbearing government. All run by a central committee who had people imprisoned for not following the rules.
It's more than just a little ironic, that the country that forced the Soviet Union into capitulation, is now quickly becoming one of most socialized countries of the western world. It is more galling still to those of us who fought the Cold War.
I know about other wars that we've fought. But this one was a 50 year staring contest, and the other guy blinked.
From August 1945, to November 1989, the grand majority of us who served in the military, fought ONLY that war. And it looks to me, like we lost it.
To use a common 21st century short hand, I just hope American Revolution 2.0 is a short one. I'm not young anymore, and I'd like to see my grandsons grow up.
I'd like to see them have a future. But this morning that future looks bleak. They are about to inherit that which I served to defeat. An overbearing central government.
And just for the record, it took me thirty minutes to write this far. It was a little hard to see through tears. If you think that makes me weak or a wimp, it's still, this morning anyway, your right to think what you want. But I always cry when something or someone dear to me dies, or I hear that the dear thing is very sick and may be dying.
And now my last few lines.
Last night was "it" for me, and this morning is the result.
There is simply too much to do, to sit here even a few hours a day, pouring my energy into words on a screen. I'm going to find some way, to be more active in my community at a grass roots level, to save my country. I took an oath once to do that. And by my own admittance this morning, to you my friends,
I have not lived up to my oath.
I have bitched, complained and voted, and that's about it. It's not enough. I allowed my inactivity to keep my current Congressman, the (dis)Honorable Brad Miller, in office way beyond his usefulness to my district. He voted FOR last nights abortion. He is way too liberal, to represent even my district, even though we have a major university smack in the middle of the district. Real Americans should not be out voted by liberals in academia, or their liberal friends in the neighborhood. And that's all a Congressional District is, a big neighborhood.
I'm going to find the NC Republican Party headquarters this week, and I'm donating this blogging time, to me grandsons, via that office. I'm going to find old fashioned, cast iron, conservative, constitutionalists to back for ALL public offices. I even want my dogs picked up by conservative dog catchers.
A war was declared long ago, against America, by believers in socialism / communism. Last night, they fired directly into my home. Yes, I know they've fired at me before, but this one went right through the kids rooms. I'm going to try to see to it that it doesn't happen again.
Many of you, my friends, have my e-mail address. Don't be strangers. And Jimbo, Paradise isn't in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, living among the lotus eaters, and uber-liberal voters. It's in Texas, among bbq cooks, Shiner Bock and cowboys.
Go home, while you still have the option buddy. Money ain't everything.
your friend, Steve Rhudy, the EX-blogger.

Today, Ranking Member of the House Ways and Means Committee Dave Camp (R-MI) released a letter from the non-partisan Joint Committee on Taxation (JCT) confirming that the failure to comply with the individual mandate to buy health insurance contained in the Pelosi health care bill (H.R. 3962, as amended) could land people in jail. The JCT letter makes clear that Americans who do not maintain “acceptable health insurance coverage” and who choose not to pay the bill’s new individual mandate tax (generally 2.5% of income), are subject to numerous civil and criminal penalties, including criminal fines of up to $250,000 and imprisonment of up to five years.
In response to the JCT letter, Camp said: “This is the ultimate example of the Democrats’ command-and-control style of governing – buy what we tell you or go to jail. It is outrageous and it should be stopped immediately.”
Key excerpts from the JCT letter appear below:
“H.R. 3962 provides that an individual (or a husband and wife in the case of a joint return) who does not, at any time during the taxable year, maintain acceptable health insurance coverage for himself or herself and each of his or her qualifying children is subject to an additional tax.” [page 1]
- - - - - - - - - -
“If the government determines that the taxpayer’s unpaid tax liability results from willful behavior, the following penalties could apply…” [page 2]
- - - - - - - - - -
Prosecution is authorized under the Code for a variety of offenses. Depending on the level of the noncompliance, the following penalties could apply to an individual:
• Section 7203 – misdemeanor willful failure to pay is punishable by a fine of up to $25,000 and/or imprisonment of up to one year.
• Section 7201 – felony willful evasion is punishable by a fine of up to $250,000 and/or imprisonment of up to five years.” [page 3]
When confronted with this same issue during its consideration of a similar individual mandate tax, the Senate Finance Committee worked on a bipartisan basis to include language in its bill that shielded Americans from civil and criminal penalties. The Pelosi bill, however, contains no similar language protecting American citizens from civil and criminal tax penalties that could include a $250,000 fine and five years in jail.
“The Senate Finance Committee had the good sense to eliminate the extreme penalty of incarceration. Speaker Pelosi’s decision to leave in the jail time provision is a threat to every family who cannot afford the $15,000 premium her plan creates. Fortunately, Republicans have an alternative that will lower health insurance costs without raising taxes or cutting Medicare,” said Camp.
According to the Congressional Budget Office the lowest cost family non-group plan under the Speaker’s bill would cost $15,000 in 2016.
I was able to post this in it's entirety because it is a public website.
No further editorial needed from me.
Gee, isn't this the infamous queen who just loves lecturing and looking down at we mere mortals? Isn't this the same Barney who insults and berates anyone who dares to disagree with him/her/it? And isn't this the same Barney who got caught running an "escort service" for young men out of his tax-payer funded DC apartment a few years ago? (that case disappeared like one of David Copperfield's stage props) Since i have yet to see him/her/it being hauled out of congress in handcuffs, old Barney seems to living a charmed life!
In fact, isn't this the same cretin who forced Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to make home loans to people who had no way of paying them back, thereby causing the financial meltdown that we're in? As punishment for that little move, the congressional slob was put in charge of fixing our financial crisis! Now that's what i call democracy...
I used to go to Arkansas, and Oklahoma all the time, when I was in the poultry business. Enid is a big chicken processing town. And for some reason, there were a lot of the women / girls that worked in the hatcheries there, who were kinda slutty. Ho'ish, slatternly, loose, give it up for dinner and a ride home. Twice I had slutty hatchery girls show up at my hotel. (one of them brought a girlfriend too) I was happily married and the thought of bedding slutty hatchery girls, never tripped my trigger. Lots of new born chicks, and horny cow girl chicks. Ah, fond memories of Enid.
But I NEVER saw any elephants running loose!! And IF I had seen the elephant, I think I could have stopped!!
Circus elephant that escaped and was hit by SUV OK
It's pretty flat there, around Enid, an elephant should have been very easy to see, as it was RUNNING DOWN THE INTERSTATE!!

On his 74th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife. It paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction.
After being persuaded, he drove to the reservation, and handed his ticket to the medicine man. The old shaman produced a small bottle, handed it to him and, with a grip on his shoulder, warned, "This is powerful medicine and must be respected. You take only a teaspoonful and then say '1-2-3'. When you do that, you will become more manly than you have ever been in your life and you can perform as long as you want."
As the man turned to leave he asked, "How do I stop the medicine from working?" "Your partner must say '1-2-3-4,' " the medicine man responded. "But when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon."
Very eager to see if it really worked, the man rushed home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine, and then invited his wife to join him in the bedroom. When she came in, he opened his robe and said, "1-2-3!" Immediately, he was the manliest of men.
His wife became very excited and began throwing off her clothes. Breathing hard, she said, "What was the 1-2-3 for?"
And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences with a preposition, because we could end up with a dangling participle.
If conservatives, moderates, and independents don't get aggressive, we will lose. Again! Being the "silent majority" for decades has caused us to lose our government and much control of our own country and lives. How much more are the American people willing to lose...

MyFox Orlando Report
ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35) - Orlando Police have responded to several shootings at an office building in downtown Orlando.
Eight people have been shot, two of them fatally.
Several of my friends and family asked me WHY I started carrying a concealed weapon. I think these situations explain thenselves.
How does a person, any person, shoot approx. 43 people on an army base? Does the Marine barracks in Beirut, Lebanon ring a bell? Why did it take a civilian officer, and a cute female one at that, to shoot the terrorist? Does New Life Church in Colorado ring a bell? Were there no MP's around, male or female?
Munley and her partner responded within three minutes of reports of gunfire on Thursday, Lt. Gen. Bob Cone said Friday. "It was an amazing and an aggressive performance by this police officer," Cone said.
It was amazing and aggressive but 3 minutes AFTER reports of gunfire? Come on guys!

Military doctor kills 11 at Fort Hood Army base
UPDATED 13 people killed 28 in hospital
UPDATE Troubling portrait emerges of Fort Hood suspect
He might have been posting to radical Muslim sites? But they didn't try to see if it WAS Hasan, until now. He's been trying to get out, but they wouldn't let him go. Why not?
All I'll say is, it's NEVER a guy named Bob, Dave or Steve.
FORT HOOD, Texas — A military mental health doctor facing deployment overseas opened fire at the Fort Hood Army base on Thursday, setting off on a rampage that killed 11 other people and left 31 wounded. Authorities killed the gunman, and the violence was believed to be the worst mass shooting in history at a U.S. military base.
The shooting began around 1:30 p.m., when shots were fired at the base's Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers who are about to be deployed or who are returning undergo medical screening, said Lt. Gen. Bob Cone at Fort Hood.
"It's a terrible tragedy. It's stunning," Cone said.
A law enforcement official identified the shooting suspect as Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss the case publicly.
Two other soldiers taken into custody following the deadly rampage were later released, the office of a Texas congressman said. A spokesman for Rep. John Carter says Fort Hood officials informed Carter's office of the release. Carter's congressional district includes the Army base.
A Fort Hood spokesman could not confirm that the two had been released.
It was unclear what the motive was. U.S. Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison said the Army major was about to deploy overseas, though it was unclear if he was headed to Iraq or Afghanistan and when he was scheduled to leave. Hutchison said she was told about the upcoming deployment by generals based at Fort Hood.
So, Nidal Malik Hasan, was openly against the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but he was still in the Army and about to be deployed. Somebody's ass ought to be in a HUGE sling over this one.
Oh and as for the extremists banning anything than can corrupt the mind .. so walking around with weapons and slaughtering civilians to gain power doesn't corrupt?

...and we suck so bad, ONLY 165 million people would like to move here.
Some 700 million people worldwide, or more than all the adults of North and South America combined, think the grass is greener on the other side of the fence and want to permanently move to another country, a poll showed Tuesday.
Residents of sub-Saharan African countries were the most likely to want to move abroad permanently, the polls conducted in 135 countries between 2007 and this year by Gallup showed.
On average, 38 percent of the adult population in sub-Saharan Africa, or around 165 million people, said they would up stakes and head for another country if they had the chance.
The most popular destination was the United States, where nearly a quarter of the 700 million -- around 165 million people -- said they would like to settle.
In joint second were Britain, Canada and France, each being named as the preferred destination of around 45 million people.
Thirty-five million said they would go to Spain, 30 million to Saudi Arabia, and 25 million each to Australia or Germany.
I'm guessing that 30 million people who want to go to Saudi, are already Muslims. Otherwise I don't get the draw.
But how bad do we REALLY look to "the world", if that number of people want to move here? Perhaps BHO should un-apologize now? I'm not holding my breath though. Maybe they're coming for the Obamacare?
Joss Whedon is trying to buy the rights to the whole Terminator idea. Jonah Goldberg is about to build Skynet to stop the Whedon.
But I think the re-makes are a good idea. They remind us just how good the originals were. Or were they?
This is so easy it's a wonder no one does it for real. Hollywood loves a remake, so just work off the AFI Top 100 list. I've got 5 right now. I'll do more later if I get a chance.
(these have a time mark and my name on them, is that good enough for a copyright?)
1. Citizen Terminator - The liquid metal Terminator goes back to take the place of Charles Foster Kane, so he can kill John Connor’s GG Grandfather, played by Joseph Cotton. But he never finds Cotton or John and dies alone, lamenting the loss of his favorite gun, Rose Bud. "Ahnold isn't born yet, but Hitler is, see plot #3.
2. The Terminatorfather – John “Sonny” Con’orleone is cut down at a toll booth by cleverly disguised robots, so the robots can take control of unions and book making in NJ and NY. Skynet is used to run illegal gambling for the mob. Skynet wins the state house in NJ, but as a Republican.
3. Terminator Blanca – the Terminator must travel back to N. Africa , during WWII, to buy guns to kill John Connor, who ran there from Paris. Ultimately, John escapes with Ilsa, that Norwegian dude gets a hill of beans. The robots join the Nazis, the Nazis are their kinda guys. The robots get to Hiroshima on a secret mission for the Fuhrer, just as a lone plane flies over…
4. Raging Terminator – just add “Raging” to the title of any existing movie. Re-release it with more CGI explosions, louder sound, but ONLY on Blue-Ray. The fans will be Raging mad for sure.
5. Terminating in the Rain – John Connor attempts to hide in the chorus line of, “A Chorus Line”. But the liquid metal robot shows up morphed into the form of another male dancer, and you know how they are...happily ever after in the West Village. Nobody dies, they simply love everybody!!
95 good choices left. Show me what YOU'VE got. 5 more in the 1st comment.

Seriously ill Sir Elton John forced to cancel concerts
Sir Elton John has had to cancel three concerts after becoming seriously ill with a combination of flu and an E.coli bacterial infection.
How, pray tell, does a openly gay man get a case of E.coli??
Maybe Wikipedia can give us the answer.
Here's the scoop, even though the coverage is sparse at the national level, the Republicans are making a surge. Elections this year are a bell weather I think.
So the MSM is attempting to get in front of the elections of 2010, with articles like this.
GOP victory Tuesday won't erase party's problems
While I agree that it's up hill, and the Republican party needs some work, I'm not buying that it's as bleak as Ms Sidoti thinks.
For Republicans, an election win of any size Tuesday would be a blessing. But victories in Virginia, New Jersey or elsewhere won't erase enormous obstacles the party faces heading into a 2010 midterm election year when control of Congress and statehouses from coast to coast will be up for grabs.
It's been a tough few years for the GOP. The party lost control of Congress in 2006 and then lost the White House in 2008 with three traditional Republican states - Indiana, North Carolina and Virginia - abandoning the party.
So even if political winds start blowing harder behind them and even if they can capitalize on Democratic missteps, Republicans still will have a long way to go over the next year because of their party's own fundamental problems - divisions over the path forward, the lack of a national leader and a shrinking base in a changing nation.
In fact, 2009 seems to have underscored what may be the biggest impediment for Republicans - the war within their base.
I see way more division among Dems right now than in the Republican camp. And recent polls show the conservative side growing, not shrinking. Later in the article she typed in these words, "Rush Limbaugh", without saying fat, racist, bombastic or cretin.
It's got to be scary when you write for the AP, and Limbaugh is the reliable source for your story. And down playing a REPUBLICAN governor in NJ has gotta sting worse than the Limbaugh thing. I mean Corzine has been such a nationally known success, how could it happen this way?
Schteveo knows fertilizer when he smells it
There is in the works a biographical motion picture of the life of Muhammad.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't it a HUGE no-no to depict, draw, paint or otherwise create an image of the Prophet? Haven't there been killings, bombings, murders, assaults, etc, in the NAME of the all powerful Allah, over images created of Muhammad? And it's NOT just cartoons either.
At any rate, the moron who produced both the Rings Trilogy and the Matrix Trilogy has decided to produce this big budget nightmare. I hope he's wearing bomb proof skivvies and living in seclusion, willing to forgo London / Hollywood premieres, decided being rich and in the public eye is over rated. Because he'll last about as long as a corn dog at Michael Moore's house, if even one Imam, or other radical Muslim nut takes offense.
The full story of Allah hu Akbar productions can be found here.
I've got some good names though
The Muhhamadtrix?...Muhammad comes to Harlem?...Oceans 11th Century?
Citizen Muhhamad?...The Bridge on the River Euphrates?...Psycho?
Apocalypse Now?...Up In Smoke?
OK, maybe they're not not all funny, but that last couple are dead on. Ya'll throw some out there. And don't forget to comment on this idiotic, misguided, abortion of an idea.
Schteveo won't be seeing "Muhammad does Dallas"
This article points out so many problems that it's hard to sort them out.
Rokaya Mohamed, an elementary school teacher, would rather die than take off her face veil, or niqab, thrusting her to the forefront of a battle by government-backed clerics to limit Islamism in Egypt.
Egypt's state-run religious establishment wants teachers like Mohamed to remove their veils in front of female students, sparking a backlash by Islamists who say women should be able to choose to cover their faces in line with their Islamic faith.
"I have put on the niqab because it is a Sunna (a tradition of the Muslim prophet Muhammad). It is something that brings me closer to religion and closer to the wives of the Prophet who used to wear it," she said
Personally it points out the problems of a government trying to control any religious movements, or the practices of said religious members. It also points out how the powers that be are scared of religious backlash. And it's in a country dominated by moderate Muslims, who fear radical muslims. (Remember them, the ones BHO says we can talk to, negotiate with and who will live by their treaties. "HA", says I)
So the Egyptian government is worried about a growing fundamentalist religious group, voting them out, in favor of the religious groups own, like minded, and preferred candidates, and the government is attempting to curtail outward showings of religious fealty, on government property, to squash "the appearance" of that growing thought pattern among the populace.
Where, oh where, have I seen that before?
The other thing I see, again, is the fundamentalist influence in the teacher there. It's backward from what we usually see here, but is this woman the exception there. Is she being told to drop here religious garb there, the same way Christians are pressured here? Isn't the government trying to keep her influence out, in favor of their own? And again, isn't that JUST like liberals here!?
I won't go into the misogynistic aspect of Islam involved in convincing this woman that she shows her love of Allah, by hiding her face.
I'm guessing that the Egyptians are no better at trusting the PEOPLE to choose the government they want, than our current group of officials are at allowing us, that same right here.
Of course, I have no idea what the Egyptian Constitution says about of the people by the people, for the people, either. But I seem to remember that theme in our basic rules.
Could it be that, because the cops were chasing criminals, and catching them, "the mayor" noticed she was running out of relatives? Or, is it that this town is so small, they haven't heard about Thorazine? In any case, this is one of the "very rare" times i'm glad to be a northerner...

If we outlaw hammers, only outlaws will have hammers!!
Silly isn't it? (sorry, I'm channeling Bugs Bunny tonight) But this proves the idiocy of anti-gun, anti-knife, Zero Tolerance policies in the the schools in our country.
Student attacked with hammer at Southeast Raleigh High
A 17-year-old, who already faces an assault charge, is accused of using a hammer to attack a female student inside a modular classroom at Southeast Raleigh Magnet High School Friday, police spokesman Jim Sughrue said.
Angelo Womack, 17, of Raleigh, was arrested on campus without further incident. The victim was treated and released from WakeMed.
According to court records, Womack is awaiting trial on another charge of assault with a deadly weapon. The charge was filed March 20 in Wake County, and his trial is set for Jan. 21, 2010.
Ok, so they checked the court records, but couldn't remember what the charges were from March? Or, in their usual PC style, they'd rather not make this look any worse than it does.
IMHO, young Mr. Womack obviously needs to be behind bars, where he can live with the other animals. And I'm not saying send him to the Bronx Zoo.
But luckily, he didn't use a knife, a gun or a rifle. So, no harm no foul. I already said it was ONLY a hammer. And no one has EVER been killed with a hammer, have they?
Schteveo has lots of hammers, and he knows how to use them!
