Blog notes

The frequent reader of this blog (thanx Mom!) has noticed the obvious: I'm no longer writing at this blog. I simply don't have time. I do post comments at various other sights around the intertubes, and quicky stuff on facebook.

That is all.

Think About This for a While

Stolen from Maetenloch's Overnight Open Thread :
'But the revelatory fact that takes a while to sink in is this: You had to be a millionaire to have one. The phone cost the equivalent of nearly $10,000, it cost about $1,000 a month to operate, and you couldn't text or play Angry Birds on it. When the first DynaTac showed up in a movie - it was Sixteen Candles, a few years before Wall Street - it was located in the front seat of a Rolls-Royce, which is where such things were found 25 or 30 years ago. By comparison, an iPhone 5 is a wonder, a commonplace miracle.
My question for the students is: How is it that the cell phones in your pockets get better and cheaper every year, but your schools get more expensive and less effective? '

Proverbs 29:2

 When the righteous thrive, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan.

A Democrat's 'War on Women' Continues...on Herself

BUSTED: Nasty Lib Activist Threatened Herself With Rape – Blamed It on Conservatives …Update: Think Progress Award-Winning Blogger and Pals With Bill Ayers.

Figures. The only way liberals can advance their cause is through lies.

9.5 Million People Have Left the Workforce Under Obama

From CNS News:
'Since February 2009, the first full month of Obama’s presidency, 9,549,000 people have left the labor force.  There were 80,387,000 Americans not working that month, compared with 89,936,000 not working or looking today, according to the latest economic release from BLS.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) labels people who are unemployed and no longer looking for work as “not in the labor force,”and that includes people who have retired on schedule, taken early retirement, or simply given up looking for work.

In the 50 months since Obama has been in office, the number of people counted as not in the labor force has declined 16 times.'

Gimme Back My Bullets by Lynyrd Skynyrd (1976)

 

You will not hear me cry, 'cause I do not sing the blues; Gimme back my bullets!

How many lone wolves make a pack?

From Howie Carr at Boston Herald:
' Needless to say, nobody knew from nothing that their pal was a bomber, even though he’d been bragging to them about his bomb-making prowess. What could they possibly know about infernal devices? Well, they understood enough to get the Vaseline the hell out of Junior Terrorist’s dorm room.

And that’s another thing. After they got back to their apartment in New Bedford, the Borats and their faithful Cantabrigian companion “freaked out” when they saw their comrade on CNN.

Yet they again neglected to call 911. Instead, they return to UMass Dartmouth to scrub the incriminating evidence out of Junior’s room.

OK, so these guys weren’t the brightest bulbs. One of them actually flunked out of UMass Dartmouth. Who knew that was even possible?'

Poll Finds Widespread Support for Redskins Name

We're talking American football, here.
'The team's nickname, which some consider a derogatory term for Native Americans, has faced a barrage of criticism. Local leaders and pundits have called for a name change. Opponents have launched a legal challenge intended to deny the team federal trademark protection. A bill introduced in Congress in March would do the same, though it appears unlikely to pass.

But a new Associated Press-GfK poll shows that nationally, "Redskins" still enjoys widespread support. Nearly four in five Americans don't think the team should change its name, the survey found. Only 11 percent think it should be changed, while 8 percent weren't sure and 2 percent didn't answer.'

American Indians Found in Obscure 15th Century Vatican Fresco

From the Christian Science Monitor:

"The discovery was made by restoration experts who were cleaning a large fresco painted by

The figures are men who seem to be dancing and are naked except for exotic-looking feather headdresses. One appears to have a Mohican-style haircut.  

Pinturicchio created the work, which shows Jesus' Resurrection, in 1494, just a year after Columbus returned from his first journey of discovery across the Atlantic." Once they had removed layers of dirt, they noticed a group of tiny figures, almost in the middle of the painting.

Planned Parenthood's Final Solution


Note to Obama: God will not bless evil...or Planned Parenthood

A brilliant bulls eye essay by Paul Rondeau at the Washington Times:
'...But, of course, as a state senator in Illinois, Obama himself voted four times against protecting babies born alive from botched abortions. They could be left to die on the table, a “post-birth abortion.”
It is Obama who wants to turn back the clock to a time when an unwanted baby, like property, could be set adrift on the floating ice, left for wild animals to consume, or given into slavery.

Or, just left to die.'
Perhaps if we humans started aborting baby seals, then the liberals might get upset...

Seven Animals that Eat Their Own Kind

Things on this list like polar bears and hamsters are sure to make the tree humpers reconsider their propaganda efficacy, but curiously absent from this list are abortionists named 'Gosnell,' and lawyers who are politicians that tell Planned Parenthood 'God bless you.'


We humans hardly deserve evolutionary success.

The Coming ObamaCare Shock

From Daniel Kessler at the WSJ:
' Millions of Americans will pay more for health insurance, lose their coverage, or have their hours of work cut back.'
This is only a shock if you're a low info voter convinced Obama's gonna give you free stuff.

Playing with Caterpillars _ Machines, not Insects

 'My wife was a little dubious about my plans for a family day trip to the Caterpillar center, but my 4-year-old-son and I couldn't wait. My parents tell me my first word was "book" and my second word was "truck." I've been a big fan of both over the past four-plus decades. Now, with a little boy of my own, I had a perfect excuse to satisfy my mania for powerful engines, giant wheels, sturdy shovels and other nifty machines that dig, pound, push, flatten and otherwise manipulate materials in ways that seem beyond the strength of mere mortals. And I'm not alone: The center attracted 50,000 visitors within just four months of opening.'

Obama Called Jason Collins To Offer His Support

Who? Oh, he's the NBA player who proclaimed to all the world that he's a homosexual.

Zzzzz.

I wonder how many soldiers wounded in Afghanistan Obama has called this week, or parents of murdered teens on the mean bloody streets of Chicago?

But let’s make front page news of his call to a sodomite…


Hoo boy. His female former fiance of 8 years says, 'What are you talking about? That man is not gay!' 

This pile of dog squeeze smells like a publicity stunt.

Is the Government Stockpiling Ammo to Thwart Gun Owners?

From the Week:
'Homeland Security has more or less laughed off 'found it so inherently unbelievable that those statements would be made it was hard to ascribe credibility to them.'
Uh, huh. But that's not a 'no.'

The ammo in question is .40 caliber and 9mm hollow point bullets - which are prohibited under the Geneva Convention. The Department of Homeland Security seeks to purchase 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition over the next few years.

IBD did the math (via Jazz Shaw at Hotair):
'Chaffetz noted that the department currently has more than 260 million rounds in stock. He said the department bought more than 103 million rounds in 2012 and used 116 million that same year among roughly 70,000 agents.

Comparing that with the small-arms purchases by the U.S. Army, he said the DHS is churning through between 1,300 and 1,600 rounds per officer per year, while the Army goes through roughly 350 per officer.'
Homeland security claims all that ammo is needed  'for training.' Yet, the question remains unasked and unanswered: Training for what??

'In a July 2, 2008 speech in Colorado Springs, candidate Obama said: "We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we've set. We've got to have a civilian national security force that's just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded."

The government that would limit law-abiding citizens to some seven bullets to defend their families and their homes still has some explaining to do.'
 

Navajo Nation Forms Company to Run NM coal mine

'Tribal lawmakers voted Monday to form a limited liability company that would run the Navajo Mine near Farmington, N.M. The tribe said it will decide by July 1 whether to purchase the mine from Australia-based BHP Billiton for about $85 million. 

Navajo President Ben Shelly also must sign off on the creation of the Navajo Transitional Energy Co. LLC. Lawmakers said it would be part of a transition to renewable energy production in the future, though critics of the mine purchase don't believe that.'
Obviously, these critics hate native Americans. And Obama's EPA better explain to the Navajo that native people don't exploit the earth for filthy lucre. All the revisionist text books say so...

Krauthammer on Border Security

Ask Obama why he’s got a fence around the White House.

Heh.

And armed security to help keep him safe.

When Govt. is Bad Business


With bad business, you can tell your boss to go screw himself and take your job skills elsewhere. With bad govt., you're forced to bend over and take it harder.

‘Misha’ Speaks: An Interview with the Alleged Boston Bomber’s ‘Svengali’

 From the New York Review of Books. Who knew they do investigative journalism?
'It started in 2009. And it started right there, in Cambridge,” Tamerlan’s uncle, Ruslan Tsarni, told CNN after the attacks. “This person just took his brain. He just brainwashed him completely.” These accusations set off a frenzied search for what some reports have called an Islamic Svengali, and over the past few days, the FBI has said it has located and has been talking to “Misha,” though his identity has remained unknown.
Today I was able to meet “Misha,” whose real name is Mikhail Allakhverdov. '
Oh, OK.

'Boston Bomber’s ‘Svengali’

Obama sat in the pews of a church pastored by a hate-mongering, anti-american, racialist bigot for 20 years, and all the MSM chimed in that there was nothing to see; no connection; didn't mean a thing.

And now, we're supposed to swallow this horsesh!t about some guy named 'misha?'
