Surrender all your control. Now.
Nancy Pelosi - scrutinyAmazing…

Pelosi’s trip has been notable for skirting human rights and the fierce public criticisms she has frequently leveled at the authoritarian government [China].

All the while, she’s building her very own DIY authoritarian gov’t right here at home.  Look for her posting on YouTube right next to Obama’s, under the heading of “FUBAR’ing the Country”.

****

Now, this is probably unintentional, but maybe it was intentional, and maybe, just maybe… Obama’s administration is more ruthless than we all thought.  Study the pic and you’ll see what I mean.

While I certainly applaud the pharmacist for “taking out the trash”, the part where he shot the little creep five more times probably was a bit over the top.

Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said in an afternoon news conference that Ersland was justified in shooting Antwun Parker once in the head on May 19. But Prater said Ersland went too far when he shot Parker five more times in the abdomen while Parker lay unconscious on the floor.

Probably.

Then again, so many of us are tired of being screwed by the bad guys.  And of being screwed by the unprincipled, in general.

The gov’t has more control than you think, because it’s been given to them.  10th Amendment was supposed to protect you from an over-powerful central government, but if you take the best safety mechanisms in the world and poke holes in them, they will fail.  Congressional testimony is supposed to be constitutional, but abuse of it to harass someone operating their business legally?

“Any investor in mortgage-backed securities has the right to insist that their contract be enforced,” Frey, president of Greenwich Financial Services, told the Times.

Before the day was out, Frey received a letter from six members of the House Financial Services Committee who said they were “outraged” by what he’d said.

“Your decision is a serious threat to our efforts to respond to the current economic crisis,” wrote Democrats Barney Frank of Massachusetts, Maxine Waters of California, Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, Paul Kanjorski of Pennsylvania, Carolyn Maloney of New York, and Melvin Watt of North Carolina.

Then they demanded that Frey testify before Congress in three weeks. And to make sure he got the point, they added:

“If this cannot be arranged on a voluntary basis, then we will pursue further steps.”

Jesus wept.  Obama is not content.

Given that the traditional Prom King and Prom Queen are male and female (seems to fit the defnition), why is it that a gay guy can be voted “Prom Queen”?

I just see this as wrong.

Daver has a wonderful pic that I want to link here… waiting for permission first, check back later.
