I am thinking it is already too late.  We are officially in the outer limits of the city of Police State.

So we have a list that is nothing new, except the last entry, but bears repeating often:

Attempts to ban or tightly regulate arms owned by citizens

(You can find your own links to this – thousands of them)

 DHS stockpiling ammo (1.6B rounds)

 DHS buying automatic weapons (7000 full auto)

 DHS purchasing drones capable of tracking moving and stationary targets and determining armed/unarmed status, capable of painting a target with IR laser from 60,000 feet (read that in the unredacted RFQ)

DHS purchasing 2700 light-armored tanks

 Next come the lists of people, their weapons, their beliefs, their affiliations, their acquaintances, etc.

You think I’m joking?  The drones, tanks, and automatic weapons don’t cause you to be uneasy?  You’re a sheeple if they don’t.

Let’s see where those items get placed.

There’s the power grab I’ve been watching for.

“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover.”  – North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue in her overt bid to overthrow your right to be represented – next comes taxation without that representation, in her eyes.

With honeyed words and an oily demeanor the usurper will sidle forth, eager to take control of your lives – just for the good of everyone, you understand.
No, Bev, what we ought to do, rather than your suggestion of suspending elections, is calmly and rationally tell Congress to grow the hell up and do their goddamned jobs like they swore to do.   – Dr. Lemur
Interesting ow her suggestion of a two year suspension just happens to cover the next election cycle, isn’t it?

Ok, the cut-n-paste section is a bit long here but there is a reason…  Pittsburgh inmates are getting 42″ plasma tv’s.

The money comes from the “Inmate Welfare Fund” – proceeds from the jail commissary used by the inmates.

Onorato administration officials who wouldn’t be interviewed on camera or allow the televisions to be photographed, argued in a statement that it’s not the public’s money.

“No taxpayer dollars or county funds are being used to purchase the televisions. The inmates are purchasing the televisions to replace old or broken sets. The decision to purchase the TVs was made by a committee that consists of jail personnel and inmate advocates.”

The point of being in jail is not to mistreat people or make them feel worse and resentful,” Marion Damick, a committee member, said.

It’s not?
Yes it is.  I want prisoners to feel worse.  I want them to hate prison.  I want to chain them to… wait, no, I don’t want tha… wait, yes I do.  I want them to never want to go back, ever.
Where’d the idea come from that there should be anything enjoyable about being incarcerated on the public’s dime?  Sure they may have bought those TVs with “non-public” money but while they are getting free room and board they ought to be paying for every cent of it.  If that deal sounds like it sucks, stay the hell out of jail.
A very good friend of mine was in jail for a while, and yes, I can still say that.  He never wants to go back again and has become a completely different person.  I’d say jail being a suck-ass place to be was probably one of the best things to ever happen to him, as he’s a fine human being that I’m proud to call a friend.

Now… (said slowly) I’ll bet… that she looked up the color of the reporter’s skin before bitching about his racist transcription of Obama’s intentionally dropped G’s in his Congressional Black Caucus speech…  She did so purely out of curiosity, I’m sure.

The good news is that liberals are good for Mother Earth.  Yes, tiny little cannisters filled with life-saving albuterol and nasty evil CFC’s are still pure evil and must be stamped out.  If a few asthmatics are killed along the way, that’s a price we’re willing to pay, because Green is Always Better.
Give it time, and the government will want to tax the rich for $14,000 for every man, woman, and child to pay for $7,000 funerals and “give” those away, too.  Hell, why not?  We’re going to be doing something similar with health care soon.  Tax for more than the amount, pocket the difference – it’s the political way to pay for all the things that can’t be justified.

Historically speaking, talk of this sort always leads to control of a population.  Total control.

Best we nip this in the bud right now.

Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano says terrorists will continue to look for U.S. vulnerabilities, making tighter security standards necessary.

“[Terrorists] are going to continue to probe the system and try to find a way through,” Napolitano said in an interview that aired Monday night on “Charlie Rose.”

“I think the tighter we get on aviation, we have to also be thinking now about going on to mass transit or to trains or maritime. So, what do we need to be doing to strengthen our protections there?”

If this is the cost of my safety, I’ll take my chances with the terrorists.

Two conclusions can be drawn – one, she is a vile totalitarian or two, she is one of these people who is so convinced of her personal powerlessness that she should never be in a position to wield power, because she’s got no natural aptitude for leadership.

Either way, this is bad.  Very bad.

Snip-snip-snip.

Snippets Update (from stuff below):

We were way cool with GirlHead.

I came home and said to her (really off-hand-like) after I’d been home for a while “So, I hear you cut your brother’s hair.”

She said “Yeah.”

I said “Well, it looks good now, but you don’t need to give any more haircuts to your brother, do you?”

Girlhead grins and says “Nah.”

The boy is *yay* shy of being a cue-ball.

I looked at him and said “So, how do you like your haircut?”  He thought I said that I liked his haircut.  I didn’t disabuse him of the notion.

He runs to Cruel Wife and says “Mom!  Daddy likes my haircut!”

It’s all good.  We’re cool.  Bunch of little Fonzies.

Pics tomorrow, I promise.
**** The Original Posting ****

News Flash…

Cruel Wife came into the kid’s bedroom just as Girlhead (age 7) just completed frantic repairs to a botched haircut she just performed on FrankenBoy (age 4).

Girlhead looked at Cruel Wife and burst into tears.

Which really is kind of enough to break your heart right there.  She knew she messed up and felt HORRIBLE about it.

No report yet on the repairs on that, but one assumes that FrankenBoy will be also known as FrankenBoy Luc Picard or Cue-Ball.

Pictures later…
