Update:

Terrible what they allow on the innernets these days.  Like voting for “Horror Movies’ Hottest Vixens”.  Terrible.  Disgusting.  Whatever you do, don’t go here because you don’t want to see scantily-clad pics of Megan Fox or Kate Beckinsale.  There.  You have been warned.

In the Salt Lake Tribune:

A downtown protest of the climate change talks in Copenhagen became a victim of Wednesday’s snowstorm.

“Not many people showed up because of the blizzard conditions,” said organizer Clea Major, an international studies student at the University of Utah.

Fox News had a funny list.  Nine things the MSM missed in 2009:

  • Van Jones – Obama’s Green Jobs Advisor*
  • ACORN – Obama’s roots organization
  • John Holdren – Obama’s Compulsory Abortion Science Advisor*
  • CLIMATEGATE  – face it, when Jon Stewart scoops you, you look pretty bad
  • NEA-GATE – Using the NEA to promote Obama’s political agenda
  • Chas Freeman – Obama’s appointee to chair the Nat’l Int. Council – conflicts of interest w/ China and Saudi
  • Tea Parties – the MSM didn’t ignore these, they openly attacked them
  • Kevin Jennings – Safe Schools Advisor* to Obama, suggested porn for 7th graders
  • Demo-Stim-Gate – Democratic districts have received twice as much stimulus as Republican districts

What could possibly be the reason for so many missed pieces of news?

… and eventually they will hang us all.

Updated Image to reflect Obama’s Executive Order to elevate foreign entities so that they needn’t be bothered by that pesky 6th Amendment.  Steal the image.  Give it away, use it to your heart’s content.  Please.

Here was last night’s version.  I like the above one better.

But, just like the airline terrorist plot system worked, so too shall our health care system.  Because, as we all know, just because a passenger was burned while being a first responder to the threat, this doesn’t mean things won’t go swimmingly well.  Just like a bunch of molested single-tree homogenized data means nothing to the Global Warming argument.  Just as all the things in 2009 (the bad things, anyway) were all Bush’s fault alone.

Update: They will indeed hang us all.  Soylent Green, ThreatsWatch, and finally  Michelle Malkin (bless them all) have reported on Obama’s plot to ensure that you, too, are now susceptible to a foreign agency operating within your own country’s borders, and they operate without verifiable oversight by your government.

On ThreatsWatch:

President Obama has not rejected the concept of ICC jurisdiction over US citizens and service members. He has avoided any direct reference to this while offering praise for the ICC for conducting its trials so far “in America’s interests.” The door thus remains wide open to the skeptical observer.

Many thanks to cbullitt over at Soylent for passing this on.

I’m not one for gushy miracle stories, but I am one for “Guy loses wife, guy loses baby, guy gets back baby, guy gets back wife, all live” type stories.  Talk about going from the peak of Mt. Everest to the bottom of the Mariana Trench to the top of Mt. Everest in under an hour.

Napolitano and Obama aren’t very reassuring when it comes to reassuring me that they are on top of things in the air travel department.

I had a thought though.  Let’s get rid of profiling after all!  Instead, we do no profiling or background checks whatsoever, and if you are from the middle east or are a middle east whack-job, you just fly on the planes designated for middle easterners.  No security checks there, either!  I’m thinking that it just might give those of the peaceful religions some incentive to stop bitching about profiling for a change and step up and police themselves.

If the plane flies more than two miles off of the scheduled flight plan you just blow the damn thing out of the sky.  Sounds pretty workable, everyone gets to fly, and there is no profiling.

I’m slowly climbing out of my bad mood.  Give me two more days and it’ll pass.

By the way, thank you all for your kind Christmas wishes.  We had a good one even though the kids ran us ragged.  Tired us out!

It is wonderful to get back into a “slow” mode of operation again.

And I still have five more days off!  Yahoo!

Actually, we need not fear much more than ourselves, specifically idiots like Napolitano.

She confirmed that there was no air marshal on the plane with Abdulmutallab. They are not on every flight.

Wow.  Couple that with the TSA operations giveaway bonanza, the terrorists can worry a lot less while trying to kill our folks.

She’s a true idiot.  She says that the system failed miserably.  She says that the system worked perfectly.  Unverified reports also quote her as saying that potpourri-crapping flying unicorns will be posted at every boarding gate.

****

I don’t mean “fear” fear, I mean if we’re going to be vigilant, lets stop this cute little charade.  Anyone who wants to say “Oh you can’t do profiling!” should be shouted down and quickly sent home.

If a rapist is loose and 17 young women have been attacked I don’t go looking for suspects in the “soccer mom” category, the “83 year old” category, or the “1st-6th grade” category.

No, I go straight to the 16-60, male, more than 140lbs, and generally, with a prior record category first.

So why the hell are we pussyfooting around with ridiculous rules like “No being out of your seat 1 hour before landing”?

Travelers on incoming international flights said that during the final hour, attendants removed blankets, banned opening overhead bins, and told passengers to stay in their seats with their hands in plain sight. – Fox News

It ain’t swedes, WASP mothers-of-two, japanese businessmen, or Boy Scout troop leaders doing this stuff folks.  In the wake of 9/11 there have been massive increases in security – each time in response to a muslim extremist bent on killing innocent people.

Feel free to call me racist but I’m only stating fact.  If some reader wants to be an ass about this, read this first:

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab told FBI agents there are more just like him in Yemen.

And in a tape released four days before the attempted destruction of the Detroit-bound Northwest plane, the leader of al Qaeda in Yemen boasted of what was planned for Americans, saying, “We are carrying a bomb to hit the enemies of God.”

Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, charged with the attempted Christmas Day bombing of Northwest Airlines flight 253, told FBI agents there were more just like him in Yemen who would strike soon. – abcnews

How abcnews can print this yet have had such an anti-Bush slant, I’ll never know.  I guess they don’t have to be consistent.

Even Timothy McVeigh (may he rot forever) at least targeted a federal building and not a planeload of innocent people.  If all McVeigh had been interested in had been killing lots of totally innocent people he could have done that in any crowded downtown area.  The fact that he still ended up killing lots of innocent people is why I say “may be rot forever”.

But these extremists are purposely targeting innocent people.

Let’s stop inconveniencing the majority for the actions of radical extremists all of whom are affiliated with one subset. Focus on the culture at fault.

Otherwise, start arresting grandmothers for suspicion of rape, too.

To help Iranian dissidents or not to help…?

I understand the desire to help those dissidents with which we sympathise.  Unfortunately these cultures, much like our country when it started, must do what needs to be done on their own.  If they have to do it the hard way, on their own, committed to their cause and convinced it is right, then they will be that much stronger for it.  This would be my stance if that was the only issue.

The other issue, that of nuclear power, is one that affects security of everyone in the region and wherever they manage to ship one of these devices.  This cannot be allowed by any stretch of the imagination.

Much as I dislike Obama, he’s got a tight line to walk here.  Iran is a very hard target and the whole area is tinder-dry.  Covert support is probably about the only option available right now.  Covert as in “not blabbed to the media or the public”.

Going to keep it short since the kids wore us out.  They were so keyed up that nothing would chill them out all day long.

I just want to point out that AGW is a real phenomenon.

2/3rds of the US is now blanketed in Global Warming.  Looks like Wisconsin, Minnesota, N. & S. Dakota, Montana, and a few other spots got as much as 30 inches or more of Global Warming.

Dallas, Texas got it’s first Global Warming in 80 years.

Obama apologists (read: ass lickers) are busy making articles meant to buoy Obama up.

I know, you may be thinking “Geez, Lemur King, it’s Christmas – be charitable.”

I am being charitable.

There are several fundamental reasons for Mr Obama’s problems, and they will persist in 2010. First, he and his aides failed to anticipate just how brutal the recession would be and the devastating scale of job losses that have swept America.

As a result polls strongly suggest he has over interpreted his mandate. US voters are obsessed with two things: jobs, and the exploding deficit. It is now so huge – $1.4 trillion and counting – that it has become a dominant issue.

Here’s where the BS gets a bit thick.

Last year, many voters backed Mr Obama believing they were sending to the White House a left-of-centre pragmatist who would transform Washington by bridging the partisan divide. Instead, many have been unnerved – even frightened – by Mr Obama’s belief that gargantuan short-term spending is the long-term answer to America’s economic woes.

Must… find… dramamine.  Must… get… barf… bag…

  1. “Many” means less than half.  Sure, a lot of people were stupid enough to believe Mr. Teleprompterlympics but a lot were voting for anyone who could not possibly be anything like Bush.
  2. What he got was far from a mandate.  Nothing at all like it.
  3. Obama and his aids have failed to anticipate just about everything except for what they needed for their White House social functions.
  4. “Left of Center”???  Geez, that is like saying sewers can be odiferous.  He is the furthest damn thing from center that you can possibly get, and he’s a thug of a leftist at that.

Damn I hope they find someone to adopt this kid.  Moral flexibility towards people of this sort should be instinctive on just about anyone’s part.  Two month olds should not have 20 broken bones and a fractured skull.

Pelosi and Reid are beneath contempt.

By JOHN FUND

Look for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to try to circumvent the traditional conference committee process by which the different versions of health care reform passed by each house will be reconciled. If so, it will be the latest example of violating principles of transparency and accountability in the single-minded pursuit of legislative victory.

They behave like syphilitic monkeys, convinced that their actions are rational when they clearly are the result of a profoundly damaged mind or at the very least a profoundly damaged world view.

To offset that awful feeling of nausea, take a gander of a short cartoon by someone who must have owned several cats (and probably still does).

Funny Cat.

I feel another photoshop coming on, to do with Cthulhu.  Inspired by this thing found originally over at Moonbattery, so the story goes.  Thanks to the artist, Ace, CK, polar bears (they are very arcane critters), and probably Pelosi who was arguably the inspiration for Cthulhu that H.P. Lovecraft needed in the first place.

Unless your Little Critter has Neuticles.

I’ve been thinking, could Neuticles be used as an alternative to chipping your pet?  Perhaps a animal control worker runs across a stray cat or dog… they wave the sniffer over the animal’s butt and presto they can tell if Fido or Fluffy is bona-fide or not.

John Stossel weighed in on Healthcare, in the form that they use in Singapore, Health Savings Accounts.

I’m not arguing with Stossel because I like the way he is thinking, but will someone explain how this is different than 30 years ago when we all bought our own damn insurance?  Health care costs were lower and we had to pick and choose when we thought it was time to go see the doc.  Survival rate was pretty good, too.

Amusing Bunni lived up to her name when I read the comments section over at cbullit’s Soylent Green (post of the day).

Maxine Clark is the Founder and CEO of Build-A-Bear… [which] features the equally wonderful “there will be no Christmas this year because AGW is melting the North Pole” video … cbullitt

I won’t post Amusing Bunni’s entire comment at Soylent (about what she put on fruit-bat Clark’s blog), but here’s the bestestest part to my ears:

Stick to selling and leave the commie claptrap to the government.
For Shame!

PS: everyone I know is boycotting you!
I know you don’t have the guts to keep this comment up, but you’ll be getting many more from other people, so just own up to it and remove that awful video. Kids are crying with that junk you wrote.

Thank you for expressing that sentiment, Bun.

What isn’t so amusing are the fruit-bats who do sh*t that treats children as mere collateral damage:

Global Warming sure is claiming lives.  I am surprised the Guardian had the guts to print this.

European weather deaths pass 100

Freezing weather brings death and disruption in Germany, Italy and across eastern Europe … <snip>

… More than 100 people have been killed in the cold snap across Europe, with temperatures plummeting and snowfall causing chaos from Moscow to Milan.

Holy crap.  This is JUST WHAT AGW PREDICTS!!!

Update:

Health care for myself and my family comes out of my paycheck and an additional large chunk comes out of my pocket in uncovered expenses.  Neither of those is a privilege – it comes from my ****ing hard work and that of Cruel Wife in all the things she does at home. It comes from our years of higher education and hours uncounted of unpaid overtime. It’s not a privilege and I don’t consider it a right of anyone to have their health care paid involuntarily by me and mine.

We have to keep our eyes on what we’re trying to do here. We’re trying to cross a demarcation line,” Harkin told “Early Show” co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez. “On one side is health care as a privilege, on the other side is health care as a right. With these votes, with the vote that we’ll take before Christmas, we will cross that line finally and say that health care is a right of all Americans.”

The main topic (next item down) is so thoroughly intertwined with pork that bacon is central to today’s thoughts.

Dates.  The kind wrapped in bacon.

Take out the almond, and this is something I’m drooling over.  Take a date, stuff it with goat cheese, and wrap it in bacon.  Broil it until crispy.

If it sounds that good how can it possibly be wrong?  I’m attaching a shrunken picture so you go to The Reckless Chef and give it a good look.

We should all be considering term limits for congress in a different light.

Get rid of multiple-term politicians.

Vince Flynn wrote a book by the title “Term Limits”.

I don’t advocate the methods in the book but we sure as hell ought to be doing the political version, which is to take these politicians in congress who seem to feel that they can “do what is best for our country” in spite of what we want and politically kill them off.

One reviewer of the book on Amazon said:

Flynn’s Washington is a place of distrust, dishonor, duplicity, hypocrisy and murder.

That’s funny, so is my Washington.

Our president saw fit to travel to Copenhagen when the top issue among Americans has been shown time and time again to be jobs and the economy, and he and Hillary figured it’d be great for us to chip in to a $100B pool of money to combat climate change.  Neither one of them has a lick of authority to do anything binding us to that.

Our congress – along clear party lines – is forcing the issue on a bill that not a single person in that governing body can understand the full import of by backroom deals, nighttime and holiday votes, and plain old intimidation.  For what do they do this?  For no good reason other than that they can with this kind of stacking in Congress.

From the outset, the White House’s core claim was that reform would reduce health costs for individuals and businesses, and they’re sticking to that story. “Anyone who says otherwise simply hasn’t read the bills,” Mr. Obama said over the weekend. This is so utterly disingenuous that we doubt the President really believes it.

And what do we do, in poll after poll?  We bitch about congress and then in nearly the same breath say “But our rep (or senator) seems pretty good.”  Wake up and smell the bullshit you are shoveling, people.

We are about to really understand the nuances in the term “Taxation WITH Representation”.

While looking for images of “bacon” on Google, I ran across bacon bikinis and thought I should pass it on.  I have no idea whatsoever what the rest of the site is about.  Don’t ask, don’t tell me, either.
