All A Big Lie?

So, could the whole story about the raid that killed Bin Laden have been a lie? That's the claim being made by a well-known (and serious) journalist, and a very liberal one at that. Now it is true that his claim is being made just about the time his new book on the subject is ready for release. But, could it be true? Would he dare make such an (explosive) claim without something solid to back him up? Is it possible we were lied to? Of course, knowing this Marxist govt., the answer to that question would be, YES!

Personally, that raid has always had me wondering. For example, we were told that OBL was killed by our SEALS, then his body was taken aboard a chopper and dumped into an ocean somewhere. The Muslim-in-Chief's administration has claimed this was done "to honer a long-standing Muslim tradition ". But experts on the Quran say that no such tradition exists. Besides, why would people who live primarily in desert countries have such a tradition? And, why would we honor (any) tradition or belief held by the #1 killer of 3000 Americans? Hmm...

Then there was that (supposedly) "very top-secret" chopper that crashed at the compound, and had to be left behind. Seriously? If it was really that "top-secret", do you really think they would have simply left it there? Hmm...  This brings to mind a quote i once read;

"The bigger the lie, the more people will believe it..." -- Adolf Hitler

Just ONE of the things I really like about the 'South', ig'nern's, ol' fashioned ig'nern's!

I've been in every state in the country, and 30 countries around the World in my merry travels.  So I get that there are places where the people are smarter than they might be in other places.  And I've met my share of goons, goofballs and slack jawed yokels most everywhere I've gone.  But when I read stories like this one, it lets me know that some places in the Old South are STILL the Old South.
A Sikh truck driver claims Mississippi traffic cops labeled him a “terrorist” because of his turban — and was then degraded in court when a county judge called the religious headwear “that rag.”

Jagjeet Singh, 49, a trucker from California, was driving through the Magnolia State when he was pulled over for driving with a flat tire in Pike County on Jan. 16, according to a complaint filed by the American Civil Liberties Union.

Singh was taken to a weigh station operated by the state’s Department of Transportation, where he says cops ordered him to turn over his “kirpan,” a 3-inch ceremonial blade that all Sikh men traditionally carry in their waistbands, the ACLU said.

The letter said that Singh tried to explain that the blade was a sacred talisman, and even showed the officers videos on his phone that explained the Sikh faith.

“In response, however, the officers laughed at him and mocked his religious beliefs,” the letter read. “One officer declared that all Sikhs are depraved and ‘terrorists.’”

But Singh was humiliated even more when he appeared in court for the charge in March.

As he waited for his attorney in the back of the courtroom, four officers approached him and told him that Judge Aubrey Rimes had ordered them to kick him out if he did not remove his turban, Atwood said.

Singh’s attorney went to the judge’s chambers, where his orders were allegedly repeated.

“He further stated that Mr. Singh would not be allowed to re-enter the courtroom unless he removed ‘that rag’ from his head and threatened to call Mr. Singh last on the docket if he continued to wear the religious headdress,” Atwood said.
I used to hate working in Mississippi.  It always seemed like they'd missed the bus with respect to stuff like..knowing 1960 had come and gone, or that women could drive legally, or that men had walked on the moon.  I used to really watch my speed down there and make sure that I was legal in every way, and shit like this story is why.

 The other thing that concerns me on this, is the number of stupid people who still don't know just WHO the bad guys really are.  I can get a couple of idiot DMV 'chicken coop' guys not knowing their asses from a hole in the wall.  But a guy sitting on a judges bench, even if it is friggin' traffic court, HIM you'd expect to know something.

I am currently planning a road trip for my wife and I for our Anniversary, Mississippi wasn't on the list of states to drive through, now it's off the list of states to drive NEAR!

Broad Answers to Various E-mails

I am currently having trouble responding to or sending e-mails.

I've gotten several from the members here, the last from the Arachnoid resident of the Big Apple about guns, laws, lawsuits in MD.  But my answer to him fits most of my thoughts about guns, gun ownership, mass shootings, etc. right now.  So, here goes...

Mary Land is just another state run by a minority of idiot hand wringers, who lord it over the populace!

Right now, I'm reading a book about the Civil War that was written around 1905.  It's the 4th or 5th book I've gotten for free from the Project Gutenberg for my Kindle, about that same period of history.  This writer was 17 or 18 when the war started, joined what became the Illinois 61st, and worked up from a Pvt to getting a Commission as a LT.

I read a lot of that kind of stuff, and here's what amazes me more and more as I learn more and more.  All of the writers talk about their family's firearms.

Most of those young men who lived in what was then the 'wilderness', could barely read if at all, and yet they managed to learn how, when and where to use firearms.  They learned to build a fire without a Bic lighter, they could melt and re-melt lead to make bullets without killing or maiming themselves and others and without setting fire to the town, city, county or state.  They learned to carry a pocketknife AND rifle to school so they could protect themselves AND hunt for dinner coming and going and the learned to skin that small game, without losing fingers, stabbing teachers or committing general mayhem with knife or gun.

In this book I'm reading now, he talks about his first battle being Shiloh.  And he recounts that his Captain had to yell at him to get him to fire his rifle during his first skirmish, because he was looking for a distinct target in the haze of gunsmoke, but couldn't find one.  The black powder they used then was NOT smokeless, so a minute into the battle, neither side could see their enemy's firing lines.  He says he didn't want to 'waste' his shot because when he was growing up, lead was hard to come by. 

He says he was taught to shoot squirrels in the head, so he that didn't waste the lead, powder or meat and fur, and that his friends were taught to shoot like that too!  That's pretty damned good shooting considering the guns of the 1850's.  It's a big WOW for me every time I read one of those kinds of stories, no matter how many times I read them. 

But to wrap around to the present however, in a day and age where kids from the age of 3 or 4, have access to more knowledge at their finger tips than scholars had 25 or 30 years ago, we cannot teach those same skills.  In fact, we have gun free / knife free zones AROUND schools where EVEN adults cannot carry a gun or knife!  Places where even a picture of a gun is not allowed!

[with tongue firmly placed in cheek, he said...]

I wonder what changed about us, that we can't do what a 13 or 14 year old could do in 1860?  Or why we can't draw a picture and not shoot or cut ourselves with that piece of art work?  Are we that stupid or hapless?

From Our Centers of "Higher Learning"

Quotations From Academia's Front Lines in the War to Destroy America:

A ham-fisted socialist maneuver Obama employed against traditional America that should have caused much greater alarm is the nationalization of the student loan industry. In the short term, this was an act of looting to help finance ObamaCare. But in the long term it is a step toward universal coercively financed college education, just as ObamaCare is a step toward socialized medicine. John Hawkins has collected some quotations from college professors that help explain why Obama et al. would want every American to go to college. A few examples:

"We need to think very, very clearly about who the enemy is. The enemy is the United States of America and everyone who supports it."
— Haunani-Kay Trask, University of Hawaii at Manoa

"The people of the Third World need our sympathetic understanding and, much more than that, they need our help. We can provide them with a margin of survival by internal disruption in the United States. Whether they can succeed against the kind of brutality we impose on them depends in large part on what happens here."
— Noam Chomsky, MIT

"The only true heroes are those who find ways that help defeat the U.S. military… I personally would like to see a million Mogadishus."
— Nicholas De Genova, Columbia University

"As to those in the World Trade Center… Let's get a grip here, shall we? True enough, they were civilians of a sort. But innocent? Gimme a break. … If there was a better, more effective, or in fact any other way of visiting some penalty befitting their participation upon the little Eichmanns inhabiting the sterile sanctuary of the twin towers, I'd really be interested in hearing about it."
— Ward Churchill, University of Colorado at Boulder

"I live to harass white folks."
— Derrick Bell, Harvard

"My experience traveling the last ten years has been that the majority of people who are activists have stayed the course in a way, in a variety of ways, devoted to overthrowing everything hateful about this government and corporate structure that we live in; capitalism itself, herself, himself, and determined to try to keep open and figure out how to move on…We who are, as we used to say, in the belly of the beast, it again means not that it's the only purveyor of violence in the world, but that we have an extraordinary special responsibility, not necessarily the most enviable one, of how to act here, inside the heart of the monster."
— Bernardine Dohrn, Northwestern University

"Kill all the rich people. Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, Kill your parents."
— Bill Ayers, University of Illinois at Chicago

Note that nutty professors Ayers and Dohrn are personal friends of Obama, and literally launched his political career from their apartment. Obama has urged us to open our hearts and minds to the racist communist Bell. These evil lunatics don't just run academia. They run the government too now.

We are witnessing a coup d'├ętat by the radical left...

The same thing all over again

So here we go again.  Another mass shooting has taken place.  I wonder if anyone of the people of whom I disagree with, politically, nearly 99% of the time is ever going to notice a common thread?

that being....the mass shootings always seem to take place in a target rich environment where the people have been disarmed!!!

Washington D. C.  one of the 3 most restrictive places in this country to possess a gun.  A major crime perpetrated by....a stereotype.

I wonder if they are ever going to notice that stereotypes usually have a nugget of truth to them?

Now I am going to stop thinking and just sits for a while.

What Were 2+ BILLION Rounds For?

As we all know, it was impossible for gun owners/shooters to buy ammo last year, and the prices for the few rounds that were available were astronomical. Then, word leaked out that (the govt.) had purchased and/or ordered "over 2 Billion rounds " of ammo, almost all of hit Hollow Point handgun ammo. We then found out that the same govt. also ordered "hundreds of full-auto rifles " for their agents. There were also dozens and dozens of armored cars. And we all said the same thing, WTF?

Well, it seems that this Marxist govt. has far more "agents" than anyone can explain, and they're in agencies that (should not) be heavily armed, or armed at all. But they are. Is America becoming a police state, or, has it already become a police state?

Sobering (and scary) Facts

A new analysis of federal health data shows that Medicaid paid for nearly half of all births in the United States in 2010, a rate that continues to increase.
The federal health care program covered 48 percent of the 3.8 million births that year, jumping from 40 percent in 2008, say researchers from the George Washington University School of Public Health. In only two years, the government entitlement covered 90,000 more women giving birth, as states expand the federal-state health coverage plan.
In part this trend results from the incremental imposition of socialized medicine. In part it results from the demographic aspect of America’s fundamental transformation:

In New York City in 2009, 76% of Hispanic births were covered by Medicaid, 70% of births in the black community were covered, and 31% of whites. As an ever-higher percentage of the population is literally born into government dependence, the correspondingly shrinking percentage of those who pull the cart instead of ride in it will have to pull ever harder. Taxes will soar, as the standard of living declines. Memories of America’s greatness will fade into collectivist oblivion.

It would have been easier to resist at the beginning. Soon, resistance will be inconceivable. You can’t defend a country that no longer exists...

The G20, the BBC, and media verbiage...

So I'm watching the news this morning.  And the big story on the BBC was the G20.  And the big story OF that story, was the leaders of the G20 changing Tax Laws worldwide, so that corporations can't move profits around to keep their money.

OK, I understand that.

But what pissed me off, was the verbiage used in the story.  They kept using terms like "tax dodging", "tax cheating", and even "tax evasion".  THEN, the financial guy went on to say the G20 countries are doing this in concert, because they NEED the money.

They went on to point out that countries like Ireland, who have rebounded over the last decade because of their TAX FRIENDLY attitudes, will mostly likely be 'irrevocably damaged'.  But this WILL benefit Third World countries, mostly in Africa (HUH?) because profits moving around and being spent, will always help the little guys. (HUH?!?!!!)

There is SO much here that's wrong headed that it's hard to cover it all without writing a book.

First and foremost, WHY is it that profits will trickle down to AFRICAN countries when profits get moved around and tax laws change?  But it won't work that way in AMERICA when the same tax changes are suggested here?  Here's some verbiage I like.

Hypocritical Jerks!

But the short of it, is that companies moving money is a system the governments SET UP, trying to out wit and beat each other in an attempt to GET more companies into their tax areas by lowering taxes, thus getting a little less up front, but getting that little bit less, from MORE companies on the back end, hoping to fill the coffers!

Companies cheating, evading and dodging didn't used to happen, not like it does now, according to the Beeb finance guys anyway.  But the companies are ONLY doing what the G20 countries set up in the first place, trying to steal business from each other.  So how is it then, that the companies are doing anything wrong?  IMHO, if it's LEGAL, it's not cheating, evading nor dodging!  Those are words you use for ILLEGAL operations, not systems of international business, set up BY the same idiots, who are now complaining about it.

But the true BS in ALL of this is the word "NEED".

If there is a country in the G20, who has a 'need' for the money, I don't know WHO it is.  The group of them are ruining the world economy, not because they have an unmet 'NEED', but because they have stupid, unending, self-serving SPENDING.  And their answer to filling the gap, is to have the companies, GIVE them the profits they worked for.  Which means taking it from the stock holders and employees, which usually means lay-offs and unemployment and problems passed BACK to the guys who created the problems.

The governments of the G20 Nations. And what an insufferable bunch of idiot assholes they are!

Is this the End of the DEA and Mexican Cartels?

It's legal to light up in Colorado and Washington, and soon smoking pot could be legalized across the country following a decision Thursday by the federal government. 

After Washington state and Colorado passed laws in November 2012 legalizing the consumption and sale of marijuana for adults over 18, lawmakers in both states waited to see whether the federal government would continue to prosecute pot crimes under federal statutes in their states.

Both Colorado and Washington have been working to set up regulatory systems in order to license and tax marijuana growers and retail sellers, but have been wary of whether federal prosecutors would come after them for doing so. They are the first states to legalize pot, and therefore to go through the process of trying to set up a regulatory system. 

But on Thursday, the Department of Justice announced that it would not prosecute marijuana crimes that were legal under state law, a move that could signal the end of the country's longtime prohibition on pot is nearing. "It certainly appears to be potentially the beginning of the end," said Paul Armantano, deputy director of the pot lobby group NORML.
If they did this here, I'd probably buy some, but I can't see me, or most people, quitting their job to stay home and watch TPIR, with a Tommy Chong Bong in their lap.  Hell, I've got 3 beers left over from a 6 pack from the 4th of July!  Most of America drinks socially, they likewise, smoke or snort socially.

We'd see more people smoking a bowl, drinking two less beers, eating half a bag of chips, 4 or 5 cookies, some toast, some...SOUP...oh HELL yeah, tomato soup!  Then they go to sleep, and get up after 9 or 10 hours of sleep [they started smoking as soon as they got HOME!!], they'd be well ready for work. 

How is that a bad thing?

So the DEA going away and the Me's'ican Cartels going away isn't a bad thing.  Maybe they can use all those billions the DEA pisses away, on something worthwhile.  That's pretty funny, right? 

Next I'll tell you a Knock Knock Joke.
