Hey, maybe global warming has stopped due to the huge mass of ice in the Great Lakes!

It is as plausible as any other damn fool reason the Thermogeddoners are coming up with.

Oh. My. Goodness. This is so ridiculous as to be hysterical. And… Hah! Oh my. It… Oh gosh… And you say big bad old greedy companies are the corrupt ones? This is just freaking hilarious.

Is the latest delay of ObamaCare regulations politically motivated? Consider what administration officials announcing the new exemption for medium-sized employers had to say about firms that might fire workers to get under the threshold and avoid hugely expensive new requirements of the law. Obama officials made clear in a press briefing that firms would not be allowed to lay off workers to get into the preferred class of those businesses with 50 to 99 employees. How will the feds know what employers were thinking when hiring and firing? Simple. Firms will be required to certify to the IRS – under penalty of perjury – that ObamaCare was not a motivating factor in their staffing decisions. To avoid ObamaCare costs you must swear that you are not trying to avoid ObamaCare costs. You can duck the law, but only if you promise not to say so

The admin is pushing a law back when it is outside their real granted power to do so… And saying THIS? And you say they are not corrupt?

It beggars the imagination.

Cynicism is a form of corruption when it guides policy, and this is about as cynical as it gets.

“Do you swear you aren’t going to take advantage of our magnanimosity and act on real-world free market pressures that will eat you alive?”

“Oh yeah, we swear. Yeah.”

Slowly whittling away the groups that would vote the Democratic Party out of existence if they really knew how badly they are going to get screwed when the bill comes due… The Hail Mary double-down pass of all times, hoping to buy control through government largesse just long enough to maintain past the election and then shoot for single-payer “because it is the only thing that will work”.

No, I am not laughing.

This is a day late. Been recouping my energy from a cold and I just plain fell asleep last night. Rare for me to do.

You would think the National Guard was really scared of a certain group.

Participants in the disaster drill located documents expressing the school employees’ “anti-government” sentiments, as well as a note identifying Pierce as the fictional right-wing terrorists’ leader.

ONG’s 52nd Civil Support Unit participated in a similar drill involving left-wing terrorists with Athens County first responders last year; public officials apologized for that training the next day in response to complaints from local environmentalist groups.

No apology to Ohioans who supported limited government and the Second Amendment appears to be forthcoming.
[snip]
Ohio National Guard Communications Director James Sims II suggested Media Trackers was “inferring” from the ONG document’s contents as opposed to “what’s actually in the report.”

After excerpts of the report were read to him, Sims said it was “not relevant” to understand why conservatives may feel unduly targeted by ONG’s training scenario.

“Okay, I’m gonna stop ya there. I’m going to quit this conversation,” Sims concluded. “You have a good day.”

Note that they apologized to the environmental groups but not the Second Amendment crowd.

Which group has historically had more ideological nutjobs?

Honestly, after a search, I am not sure. I can tell you that the biggest problem as far as ideology goes is not, historically speaking, supporters of the 2nd Amendment or the Constitution.

Historically.

The Ohio Nat’l Guard probably has been scenting the wind and worrying what would happen if there was a power grab by the gov’t, however. That possibility doesn’t even bear thinking about because I think it would be pretty damned awful.

Crazy Cat Lady sent me this.

She had the gall to make jokes, like “Guess it was bring-your-own (bbq) sauce event”.

When a semi truck overturns and becomes an inferno, burning alive 76,000 lbs of beef ribs, I call that a tragedy. It is just plain cold to make jokes about the fiery death of ribs.

Note in comments below… hilljohnny says he has reason to believe the load of ribs quoted might be a load of BS. I hope so, since this is a tragedy otherwise.

Tonight is Obama’s State of the Union address.

I could watch it but I was thinking I would get out the random orbital sander and grind my eyes out, instead. It was a serious toss-up.

Another tragedy today was the loss of one of the Sith’s most beloved… Her crock pot.

Be kind to her – the weather has dropped below freezing in Deepest Darkest Texas, and that makes the loss of a crock a terrible thing. I mock her on some things but rarely if ever about food. Food is serious stuff.

Call me ignorant, but handing out free crack pipes to combat AIDS sounds a lot like running a lawn mower in the bed of your pickup to improve your truck’s fuel economy.

“It may seem counter-intuitive, but it’s a great program. Once you can get people into your program, make them feel respected, taken care of them, they’re more likely to want to come back and want to get on HIV meds,” Thomas said.

Busy. Very busy. I would post whines about that but I don’t have the willpower to.

Enough about that.

Imagine if, instead of being a racist, it wasn’t you but your president who was a racist sack of shite?

In August of this year, White House Principal Deputy Press Secretary Josh Earnest suggested that President Obama’s would lend special support to the country’s historically black colleges and universities.
“The President and this administration have been strong supporters of historically black colleges and universities all across the country,” said Earnest, speaking from the White House on August 20. “Funding for those colleges and universities has increased under President Obama.”
“[T]he record — the President’s record on these issues — he has a bias in favor of historically black colleges and universities because of the service they provide and because of the quality education that they provide to their students.” – Campus Reform

Having a bias towards your skin color is called racism.

Wagner and her husband retired early. She was a nurse for 35 years and championed Obamacare, until she received a letter from her insurance company saying it was canceling her policy.

Okay, look… I’ve seen enough weird sh*t come out of the woodworks this week that I’m upping the ratings level here to PG-13+ to cover some of these things.  I put bastardized leetspeak in for certain words because it is a smokescreen against the younger members of my family and to keep perv searches down a bit.  I’ll have some more weird shit to add tomorrow but for now it is 3:30am and it is nearly my bedtime.

Brits supply P@nd@ Pr0n™ movies to pandas with stagnant luv life.  Pr0n st@rs Hugh Mongous and Tiffany Teats, both WWF sponsors, donned panda outfits and donated their time and fluids to the cause.

Gosh, that was mighty nice of them, wasn’t it?

Of course now male pandas will slap the female’s butts and teats and achieve extra-coital climax on the female panda’s face just like Hugh and Tiffany show them.  Probably won’t get any more pandas out of the deal but the pandas will have a rockin wuv life as illustrated by pr0n st@rs.

Maybe everyone heard this a long time ago (2 days on the internet is like forever, y’know?), but I only read it one day ago.  So I guess that is half of forever and I’m just now getting around to it.

Brown University is putting the learning back in education and tossing in/off real-world experience.  What are the topics?

4nic@tion 101, for starters.  The other is The Ultim@te Guide to Pro5t@t3 Pl3@5ur3.

The events are part of Brown University’s annual s3ck5 week, paid for by the student activities office.

The week of activities are set to conclude with a “Lace and Leather Burlsesque Show.”

A university spokesperson did not respond to requests for comment from Campus Reform or disclose how much funding had been deployed to fund the program.

On Monday, Brown also hosted a “4nic@tion 101” seminar as part of their s3ck5 week, which included topics such as “putting c0nd0m5 on with your mouth,” “petting kitties,” and “@n@1 adventures.”

I don’t much care if the student activities office funded this or not.  Why not host that down at the local gey bar?

I have a lesbian friend who called people that are “merely interested” in some of this stuff “NYN’ers”, as in Not Yet Notified, because it hasn’t really dawned on them that their wiring is hooked up differently yet.

Glickman will “talk about the common concerns that sometimes keep people from exploring it (and how to overcome them), tips for easy and pleasurable @n@l p3n3tr@tion, pro5t@t3 massage, which toys work best for pro5t@t3 fun, pegging, combining pro5t@t3 pleasure with other kinds of s3ck5, and much more,” it continues.

Following the presentation the school will host a night of “s3ck5 and chocolate in the dark” where students are advised to “bring blankets, pillows, friends, and questions for a night of cozy conversation in a dark, anonymyzing [sic] space.”

Got that?  Come for a nice powerpoint presentation and then y’alls can sit around in a conveniently darkened room and practice it in a non-threatening group atmosphere, but we’ll be discreet and cover ourselves with blankies.

You know I’m not a gay basher – I couldn’t condone the acts because they aren’t biblically supported, but I sure as hell am not going to go back to my old ways of spewing sh*t about them as people.  They’re people and no more or less a sinner than I.

But that doesn’t mean I can’t call creepy when I sees it.  Brown University has so many creepy crawlies they need to erect a tent over the school and fumigate it.

Hey, who here likes eggs?  What’s more s3ck5ual than the unfertilized ovum of a domesticated fowl?  Freakin’ yummy, too.  I happen to love prepared chicken embryos in every way possible (to cook them, not engage in frantic acts of fruitless copulation with them).  Says CBS San Francisco:

A San Francisco food producer wants to make you an omelet without breaking any eggs – and they may be able to do it with one key ingredient they make in a lab – no chicken required.

[snip]

That’s right – Tetrick claims Hampton Creek has improved on the egg. They call their product “Beyond Eggs.”

“It’s made up of a variety of plants, including peas. We use different gums. We use a host of different plant-based protein sources,” Tetrick explained.

It’s hard to believe a blend of plants can imitate not only the taste of an egg, but the ability to whip up into foam like an egg, or coagulate into gel like an egg, but Tetrick said his team is clever about selecting plants that not only replicate, but surpass the egg in food products.

Look, if I want to eat something that tastes like an animal I want there to be an animal involved.  I want to take down that cow with my teeth if such a notion occurs.  I want to shatter the protective shell around that chicken embryo and fry it in butter.  I want to eat a corn dog and know that it was made with the finest chicken lips and assholes, pork snouts, and beef tendons that the industry has to offer.  I want a picture of the lamb next to my plate when they bring me a rack of lamb.

Has anyone made a “veggie” dish that actually was made entirely of meat?

I grew up with a cow named Herbie.  He was a great cow.  Friendly, followed you around, let you scratch his forehead… he was a good cow, Herbie was.  And then he made great burgers (HerbieBurgers) and steaks and all manner of yummy stuff.  Later Dad had two cows in the pasture named T-bone and Rump Roast.  Dropped the pretense entirely.  They were delicious with ketchup and a pickle.

Not only is it hard to believe a blend of plants can imitate an egg, I don’t believe it.  I’m also painfully aware of how bad butter used to be for us until the medical journal “EVERYBODY PANIC” was published that said that the Holy Sacrament of Margarine was found to be a tool of the devil.

So screw the vegan egg bullshit.  Tomorrow I am introducing Lemurita to Spam™.  I have been letting her know that “nearly food” products can be darned tasty.  Hell, we may even make Spam™ Kimbap.  What’s that?  You say you want to try some Spam™ Nasi Goreng?  Maybe Pad Krapow with Spam™ instead of beef.

Joe Biden says: “It’s just easier to blow someone’s brains out with a shotgun”.

“Sweetheart, what are you going to do after you shoot the guy in the arm and he starts chasing you around the house?” Biden looked at the woman and winked. “You gonna outrun him in your chair? Because at that point you’ve really pissed him off. Do you know what some creep is going to do to you after you’ve put a bullet in his arm? Trust me, I’ve read some of those police reports and frankly, it’s too sickening to share with you. You’re only asking for trouble if you don’t blast that fella’s head off and I’m tellin’ ya, it’s just easier to blow someone’s brains out with a double barrel shotgun.”

Classic Joe, right?

With time for one last question, a woman said she was uneasy about the horrific physical repercussions of shooting an intruder in the head with a double barrel shotgun.

“Look, it’s gonna be a little messy,” Biden sighed. “But you know what I always tell Jill? I look her in the eye and ask, whose brains do you want them scraping off the walls of our home? Yours, or the guy you prevented from stealing our toaster?” Mr. Biden looked at his audience. “It’s just that simple.”

The vice president closed his notes and smiled at the nursing home residents.

“Look folks, the fact of the matter is, America’s trauma scene cleanup crews are the best in the world, bar none. A couple of hours after they do their magic you’ll be eating meatloaf with your grand kids in the same kitchen that just hours before was dripping with some hooligan’s grey matter. Now, whatcha waitin’ for? Go buy a shotgun!”

Bob Costas decided to use his air time to rant against the evils of guns and started quoting Jason Whitlock.

“Our current gun culture,”Whitlock wrote, “ensures that more and more domestic disputes will end in the ultimate tragedy and that more convenience-store confrontations over loud music coming from a car will leave more teenage boys bloodied and dead.”

“Handguns do not enhance our safety. They exacerbate our flaws, tempt us to escalate arguments, and bait us into embracing confrontation rather than avoiding it. In the coming days, Jovan Belcher’s actions, and their possible connection to football will be analyzed. Who knows?”

“But here,” wrote Jason Whitlock,” is what I believe. If Jovan Belcher didn’t possess a gun, he and Kasandra Perkins would both be alive today.”

Current gang gun culture ensures more domestic disputes because these individuals are highly inclined to try to hurt each other by any means.   These are not church members we’re talking about.

Handguns absolutely enhance my safety the moment I have one, am trained to use it, and are fully willing and ready to use it in defense of my home and family.  That right there enhances our safety.

If I am sitting in my own home I have not sought out confrontation but will press for it if a threat is perceived.

Lastly, if Belcher didn’t have a gun there is no possible way you can argue that he and Ms. Perkins would be alive today.  That’s is horse-crap argument and is factually fallacious on several levels.

This is how your gun rights will be taken from you – one unwasted tragedy at a time.

The other day Hackerboy (who is six) was on the Wii playing a game that looked suspiciously like the Tour de France in its layout.  Let’s call it the Tour de Frank.

Anyway, he had moved from 100th place in the beginning to 17th place by the end of Stage 5.  I was making dinner and only marginally paying attention but I was following his progress.  He was clearly excited by his progress and I heard him say loudly:

I was BORN for this!

Where he got that, I’ll never know.

Rodriguez moved to the U.S. with his family when he was 7. He says if he could, he would vote.

“To see people that have that privilege and not take it, and because they don’t take it we have people elected that create laws that hurt me, that hurt my family, that hurt our communities. It can get frustrating,” he says.

“I am practically an American without papers, and because of that I don’t have the power to vote,” says Rodriguez. “So, the best thing I can do now is organize those that can, and make them vote for me.”

Yet another ILLEGAL alien is whinging about the raw deal he’s getting just because he hasn’t gone and become a legal entity in the US.  Like it’s the US’s fault that he’s in the situation he’s in.  It’s his family who is at fault.  They didn’t do a “moved to the US”, they did a “snuck into the country illegally and decided to stay”.

At the end of the evening, Somos America President Daniel Rodriguez took to the podium.

“Raise your hand,” he said in Spanish, “if you know someone who’s not here but needs this information. Raise your hand if you know someone who’s been deported. Raise your hand if you know someone who has the power to vote.”

Across the room, hands shot up at each statement.

“Every question, almost everyone raised their hands, and that just goes to show you that there’s a lot of people that know the pain and the hurt of being deported or having to know someone that was deported,” Rodriguez recounted.

Rodriguez told the crowd of mostly ineligible voters that they need to use that pain and turn it into power by tapping friends and family who can vote.

The pain and hurt of being deported or having to know someone that was deported… I have friends from Germany that were here LEGALLY and they had to go back home.  So a large number of hispanics here illegally feel like they are owed the right to break the law and be given a free pass?  Well, they certainly won’t be disabused of that notion by our Marxist president and the liberal media.

Today I heard another thing on NPR.

One of the reporters was interviewing a lady from Yemen.

Turns out a lot of Yemenis hate the US and distrust us.

WHOA!  OHMYGODOHMYGODOHMYGOD!  This turns my world UPSIDE DOWN!  Yemenis somewhere in the world hate us.  Oh.  My.  God.

She said it as if we were suddenly going to have to sit up straight and pay attention.  So what?  Big deal.  Let’s have a head count – the number of Yemenis who have been terrorists who have attempted to kill, want to kill, or have killed – innocent civilians.  Ok.  Now let’s take a head count of the number of US terrorists who have the same aspirations to kill Yemenis.  Yeah, there’s a huge network of people organizing to do just that.  Uh-huh.  Sure.

Next, the reporter made mention of either $150 or $170 million dollars being spent on aid programs in Yemen – building things, infrastructure, etc.  He asked her if that is helping the US’s image in Yemen.

Guess what?

Her response was essentially that no, it does nothing because Yemenis see how much we spend on military involvement in Yemen – troops, equipment, training – and see that it is far more.  They also believe that most of that money goes to corrupt individuals in their government.

A corrupt government is a symptom of a corrupt society (the US is not an exception).  But why is the US implicitly to blame for their corruption?  Why do Yemenis still take money from the US?

And better yet, why do we spend money on a country that hates and distrusts us when it does no good and is going to corrupt individuals?  We do it so we can function covertly and overtly in their country.  Let’s not couch it in terms of “aid”, m’kay?  And Yemen – if it is such a distasteful thing, stop claiming the high road while holding out the hands for money.  Clean your house of corruption while you are at it.

Russia sends attack choppers to Syria.

AP – The Obama administration said Tuesday that Russia is sending attack helicopters to Syrian President Bashar Assad’s regime and warned that the Arab country’s 15-month conflict could become even deadlier.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said the U.S. was “concerned about the latest information we have that there are attack helicopters on the way from Russia to Syria.”

In a test of wills between Putin and Obama I see Putin outclassing our president by a huge margin.  The only way O will have enough balls to go head to head with Putin is if Hillary loans him her set.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel went on the defensive Thursday about a surge of recent homicides in Chicago and questioned why new law enforcement tactics hadn’t been created before he was elected 10 months ago.

You can say, ‘Are you doing it right,’” Emanuel said, “but the question is, ‘Why were those policies not done before?‘”  – NBC Chicago

A side note – I think we can assume that Rahm helped firm up Obama’s skillset in the area of redirecting blame.

To answer Rahm’s question – - – it’s probably Bush’s fault.

Well, why the hell not?  It’s the answer to every other ill that has happened on a liberal’s watch.

New Black Panther chief of staff Michelle Williams (as reported by WTSP.com):

Michelle said during that interview, “Let me tell you, the things that’s about to happen, to these honkeys, these crackers, these pigs, these pink people, these —- people. It has been long overdue. My prize right now this evening … is gonna be the bounty, the arrest, dead or alive, for George Zimmerman. You feel me?”

Then later after she “apologizes” she says:

In a candid moment during her 10 News interview, she said, “Do I want to see George Zimmerman dead? No. Do I want to see him brought to justice? Hell yes.”

Michelle assured us that she doesn’t want to have anyone out there pick up a gun. “I don’t want violence, I don’t promote violence. That’s why I told you, my words were out of anger.”

But didn’t she say earlier that her prize would be “the bounty, the arrest, dead or alive, for George Zimmerman”?  I’m confused.  But if we take her at her word, picking up a tree limb and bludgeoning Zimmerman to death would be A-OK in her book.

Could we also assume that to her the word “apologize” means anything but the spin South Park puts on Jesse Jackson’s definition of “apologize”?

Anyway, she’s just another of a long line of leftist turds who only apologize when they realize that no one is going to back them up after their bullsh*t behavior, and as a result only petulantly give what seems like an apology but amounts to “I’m sorry you got offended when I told you the truth”.

****

Speaking of not having your bullsh*t behavior backed up

Democrats have engaged in a full-court press in pushing back on strategist Hilary Rosen’s comment on CNN Wednesday night that as a wealthy stay-at-home-mom Ann Romney “never worked a day in her life.”

Rosen apologized to Romney Thursday, but only after kicking up a firestorm over stay-at-home motherhood and drawing a rebuke from the president himself.

Apologized “but only after kicking up a firestorm”?  Seriously, a journalism major wrote this?  How/why in the hell would anyone apologize before kicking up a firestorm?

Obama kicked the few teeth she had remaining clear into the back of her throat (yay):

“There is no tougher job than being a mom,” President Obama told a Cedar Rapids television station, mentioning his own wife and mother. He added, “I don’t have a lot of patience for commentary about the spouses of political candidates. My general view is those of us who are in the public life, we’re fair game. Our families are civilians.”

Oh, I don’t know – being a dad isn’t always a walk in the park, either, you nimwit.  And if you were obliquely referring to Michelle as being a civilian, not when she pushes meal choices on our military and engages in indoctrination of our kids she’s not.

Hey, here’s another “apology”!

“As a mom I know that raising children is the hardest job there is. As a pundit, I know my words on CNN last night were poorly chosen,” Rosen said in a statement Thursday afternoon. “I apologize to Ann Romney and anyone else who was offended. Let’s declare peace in this phony war and go back to focus on the substance.”

“… to Ann Romneyand anyone else who was offended”.

That is the CLASSIC apology that says “I’m sorry you couldn’t take my truths,”  which is really no apology at all.  She’d have been more convincing if she’d said through clenched teeth, “I apologize to Ann Romney (da bitch)”.

A South Jersey man has come up with what he hopes is a solution to a controversy over the American flag that he flew in his yard — a flag bearing the image of President Barack Obama in place of the field of stars. Wes Kennedy, of the Acacia housing development in Lumberton, says he had no idea some of his neighbors had a problem with his flag until reporters started calling and telling him.  – Philadelphia CBS Local

You hang an adulterated US flag with a picture of a controversial bonehead on it and it never occurred that it might not be popular?  Riiiiiight.

“If someone had come to me in the beginning, I would have said, ‘Let’s sit down and talk to see what we might reasonably come up with as a solution.’”

Again:  Riiiiiiight.

Once he became aware of their objections, Kennedy worked out his own solution.

He’s taken the flag down and replaced it with two separate flags — one, the standard stars and stripes, and the second a picture of Obama.

Kennedy hopes his neighbors are happy, though he’s not sure.

“In Acacia, there are some angry, maybe even evil-minded people about Obama,” he tells KYW Newsradio.

Evil-minded?  Is that what we’re calling patriotism and respect for the flag now?  Must be lib-speak.

An Observant Reader, ooGcM taobmaetS, recently passed on to me via dead drops, mute couriers, and randomized routes a picture that is so momentous, so blockbuster, so all-consuming, that it is a wonder that space-time hasn’t grown thinner in spots and perhaps even started to crumble like old cheese in others.

It was regarding the nature of God.


I must do some fearless sock-searching, perhaps take an inventory of my drawers, and get right with my wardrobe.

I have asked taobmaetS ooGcM if he has considered being a High Priest of the Ordered Drawer of the Holey Sock.

He chuckled and shook his head modestly and said:

Lemur, I know you worship the very ground I walk on (shame on you).  But you also know I’m too humble to think of elevating myself to a position of such awesome responsibility.  I am just a simple man, with simple needs, and a cat named Brrrt, who needs me to feed him smoked gouda and free him from trees from time to time.  No, that is my calling in life.  And baiting goths and trolling Trolls.  And ****ing with people that need ****ing with.  Yes, that’s the life for me, my friend.  That’s the life for me and that’s my calling.  Leave the rest of that to better men than I. -  taobmaetS ooGcM, explaining why he could not take up the mantle of the Holey Sock priesthood. 

Note:  I am a God-fearing Protestant and not some rabid atheist.  I just believe that God also has a sense of humor.  Look at the world around you and you have many examples of this.

USDA Buys 7 Million Pounds of Slime for School Lunches

Here’s what should really disturb you:

Pink slime is a mixture of leftover trimmings, sinew, and other beef parts culled from a cow once the expensive and more recognizable cuts of meat have been harvested and sent to a butcher. The collection of leftovers is spun in a centrifuge to remove excess fat, washed in a disinfecting solution and then minced for use in various applications.

Pink slime is allowed to make up as much as 15% of the ground beef you might be purchasing at from your local grocery store. And according to some industry experts, the concoction may be in as much as 70% of the ground beef found in America.  - Mike Opelka, The Blaze

A new graphic in the works.  It’ll be Doctor Lemur poster featuring a rendering of a product, which is a raytraced bottle made using the Dr. Lemur logo and stuff.  It is stuff wrapped in stuff wrapped in more stuff but I think it will look cool.

Here’s the newer one with more glassy glass.

San Fran Nan is telling us that she’s going to leak.  Where are her DC-strength Depends™ undergarments for pissy women with control issues?  She’d better run down and find some quickly.

Nancy Pelosi:

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) is holding back some information on Republican Newt Gingrich that could detract from his presidential campaign, according to a report published Monday.

“One of these days we’ll have a conversation about Newt Gingrich,” Pelosi told Talking Points Memo. “When the time is right. … I know a lot about him. I served on the investigative committee that investigated him, four of us locked in a room in an undisclosed location for a year. A thousand pages of his stuff.”  – source:  The Hill

The real question is why would she say this?  What could she hope to achieve?  Implied very strongly is that Newt Gingrich should suspend his campaign in the light of potentially damaging information.

blackmail [ˈblækˌmeɪl]  n.

1. (Law) the act of attempting to obtain money by intimidation, as by threats to disclose discreditable information
2. the exertion of pressure or threats, esp unfairly, in an attempt to influence someone’s actions

vb (tr)

1. (Law) to exact or attempt to exact (money or anything of value) from (a person) by threats or intimidation; extort
2. to attempt to influence the actions of (a person), esp by unfair pressure or threats
blackmailer  n
Not sure if “implied” would hold up in court, but this has all the feel of a store owner being shaken down to pay “fire insurance” because it would be a real tragedy if something were to happen to the owner’s building if the boys weren’t there to keep an eye on the place.
Her statement is not a lie, but wait until she turns on “spin control”.  Then we’ll see lies.  Already the implications are enough to insult the listener because we all recognize her speech for what it is – threats.  And when she does deny it or try to excuse it…

1. Stelamendacium: an arrogantly stupid lie that makes the recipient want to beat the teller to a bloody pulp.

2. Stelamenpunirist: someone who tells an arrogantly stupid lie that casts doubt on the listener’s intelligence and who rightfully deserves to be beaten to a bloody pulp.

But until that point, all we can do is arrest her for blackmail.  Newt Gingrich handled it well:

Gingrich reacted to Pelosi’s comments by thanking her for an “early Christmas gift.”

He also said Pelosi would be violating House rules and abusing the ethics process if she disclosed anything from the ethics investigation.

“That is a fundamental violation of the rules of the House,” Gingrich said in New York following a meeting with Donald Trump. “She’s now prepared to totally abuse the ethics process.”

But facts are facts – Pelosi engaged in blackmail, by threatening the disclosure of information with the intent to influence someone’s behavior.  Democrats would do well to treat her as if she were political nerve gas and abandon her, but I prefer that they embrace her and her poisonous nature.

I know Newt Gingrich isn’t a favorite among many conservatives and I can only respond with this:  Every single one of the Republican candidates is better than what we have in the White House right now.  Without exception, every single one of them.  So before going nuclear on him and threatening to not vote or making a statement by voting for some other candidate who cannot possibly win, you’d be better served to remember that.

Any idea why, when our own finances are draining down the drain – why we are giving money to the IMF to bail Eurozone members out of their own self-made economic hell?  Especially since the Eurozone was absolutely formed with the clear intent to take the US down a peg or three?  They made no secret about that.
****
I can honestly admit to wondering if the school administrators have lost their freakin’ minds.  Kicking a bully in the nuts is sexual harassment?

I have had more than enough of Christians that get up on their soapboxes and engage in behavior modification speech.  Telling Christians that they are the reason for the commercialization of Christmas, that to be good Christians we should have two manger displays (one inside and one outside our homes), how we should speak in wishing someone a fantastic Christmas, and how to pick out Christmas cards (the expectations of which I find offensive)… I have only one thing to say, with as much love as I possibly can… stop worrying about how other people live their lives, go have a Merry Christmas, and stuff it.
Stop crapping on other people’s enjoyment of the holiday.
****
What friendship doesn’t have it’s ups and downs?  Woman kills friend stuffs her body under pile of Christmas presents.  Who among us hasn’t been there, huh?

Be sure to come back later since I have more to add.

I think one thing that we’ve been talking about a lot in Boston is the fact this is not necessarily anti-capitalism, and that this isn’t anti-wealth. And so, you know, we’ve found that some people who are just wealthy might be a little alienated by our movement.   And so we’ve been sort of actively trying to reach out to them and say that, you know, it’s not that we have anything against wealth, and it’s not that we have anything against capitalism. We just want to make sure that our democracy is functioning the way that it’s supposed to function.Jason Potteiger, brainwashed and unemployed recent graduate

And how is shutting down businesses, destroying property, and truly being a public danger and nuisance in any way a functioning democracy?

We’re not a democracy, we’re a representative republic, but if we concede the point for the sake of argument, the functioning “democracy” functions when everybody votes.  Then you keep abreast of the issues and write to your congress-critters.  That’s how it works.

Or, you can make a public spectacle and waste taxpayer dollars as an attention-whore and say stupid things like this:

“Inherently, in asking for demands, you are accepting that there is a power greater than yourself, which is something that this movement is categorically against,” Patrick Bruner, a 23-year-old protester, told the group. “This movement is founded on autonomous action and collective wisdom.”

There’s earned arrogance…

Arrogance has to be earned.  Tell me what you did to earn yours.  – House

And there is Patrick Bruner’s arrogance, which really doesn’t have a lot of life experience to justify it yet.  Of course there are powers greater than ones’ self – it is a fact of life and you can’t change it even if you close your eyes really hard and wish for it to be different.

Sam Abrahamson… back in the NPR interview:

You know, I came out here, essentially, because I’m sick of the apathy that seems to be pervading through my generation. Just like Jason, I’m worried about paying off all this debt that I’m racking up from college. So one of the things that I’m hoping to accomplish from these protests is to get some financial reforms, that we can have support for people like myself who are in the middle class, who are not going to have the ability to pay these loans off by themselves.

Grammar is not a strong point of college graduates, obviously.

How is Occupy Wall Street supposed to pay off all the debt one racks up from college?  The guy went to college in “pre-reforms” times, and surely must have known that he would be responsible for paying for the services rendered (obtaining an education).  If you know you are not going to have the ability to pay off the loans by yourself, perhaps you ought to save up some money and then go to school.

What Abrahamson is trying to do is get the education and then not have to pay for it.  Free lunch.  As a graduate who paid off all of his loans the less-polite part of me very much wants to say to Abrahamson:

Stuff it, you snot-nosed litte dirtbag.  Suck it up and be a man.  The real apathy here is rooted in your inability to face that you have to work for things in life and the rest of the world owes you no favors.  Stop being a child.

Idiots succeed in making statements like the ones above because no one calls them on it.  The Democratic Party gets away with calling itself the party that includes blacks and minorities because they are allowed to.  Media is allowed to slash the Tea Party as people clinging to guns and religion because they are allowed to (yes, I know Obama said that one).

And Occupy Wall Street is allowed the fiction of claiming that their 0.001% represents the rest of us in the 99% even though it is utterly untrue.  They don’t speak for me even one tiny bit.  They can’t even coherently speak for themselves since the liberal portion of this country is really composed of a bunch of special interests that band together as long as purposes suit rather than be held together by a common cause which is indeed bigger than themselves.  Autonomous action and collective wisdom is synonymous with anarchy and chaos.

The politest fiction is that demonstrative liberalism isn’t rooted in hubris.

More later – I need a nap.

I hear some Penn St. people are upset about what the Sandusky coverup has done to “a good man”, Paterno.

Demonstrators overturned a TV news van, toppled street lights, shook stop signs and threw toilet paper. From rooftops and in the streets, they yelled “F— Sandusky!” and “We Want JoePa!”

The campus chaos began shortly after 10 p.m. with the announcement by the board of trustees that Paterno, 84, who had said earlier in the day that he would retire at the end of the season, was instead fired over the phone and denied a chance to end his career on the playing field.

Seriously, you guys are up in arms and rioting about the firing of a guy who did not immediately go to the police after hearing of a rape of a young boy from an eyewitness?

Happy Valley was in bedlam early today as angry, chanting students ran amok in a bizarre climax to an unforgettable day that ended with the unthinkable: the firing of football legend Joe Paterno.

Chanting “Joe Pa-ter-no!” and “One More Game!” students raced to the stately Old Main administration building to express their anger that the winningest coach in major-college football history was out – fallout from the child-sex scandal involving his former top assistant, Jerry Sandusky.

A man covered up the abuse of a child and you can only think about “one more game” rather than “this sick fuck accomplice needs to be on trial with the sexual perversion monster”?

Seriously, if you are so confused that you feel a need to support someone who did not act and in fact helped cover it up in the face of compelling evidence of sexual abuse of a child, then you need some help yourself because your priorities are all wrong.  That “one more game” doesn’t even show up on the radar.  He doesn’t deserve that last game.  And those of you who are let down?  Get pissed at Paterno and certainly Sandusky, but don’t you dare riot and piss and moan about a football game and imply that the tragedy of it’s loss somehow has parity with the kid’s lifetime well-being.

A sexually (or physically) abused kid may indeed be counseled and able to come to grips with what happened later… maybe… but it will forever shape his or her life.  There is NO excuse for a molester or an enabler.  None.

Of course, I could understand Penn State folks being kind of pissed at being associated with these guys…

Here’s the link to an op-ed column by Michael Reagan – on the off chance that you’d not read it because it meant clicking on a link to do so (thus tiring out your mouse-finger), then I’m pasting it here.  I’m sure he’ll understand but I’m looking into how to get proper permission – in the meantime I think it can understandably be labelled as a PSA.

Don’t Be an Enabler — When a Child Is Abused, Here’s What to Do

By Michael Reagan

Published November 10, 2011 | FoxNews.com

Allegations of child sexual abuse by a former assistant football coach at Penn State University have dominated the news this week. On Wednesday legendary football coach Joe Paterno released a statement in which he said, “With the benefit of hindsight, I wish I had done more.” How lame is that, coach?

Would you have accepted that excuse from one of your players? “With the benefit of hindsight, coach, I wish I had run the route we rehearsed a thousand times in practice.” See how stupid that sounds? It doesn’t take “hindsight” to know that when some monster is raping children in your locker room, you call the police.

Coach, you knew back in 2002 that Jerry Sandusky had anally raped a ten-year-old boy in the Lasch Football Building. You handled the matter quietly with your athletic director, Tim Curley. You took away the rapist’s keys and barred him from the facility—but you didn’t call the police. You didn’t lift a finger to help the victim. No hindsight needed, coach. You screwed up.

Yes, we all know about your 61-year career at Penn State. But when you allow children to be victimized right under your nose, you wipe out 61 years of achievement. The Jerry Sandusky scandal is your legacy now.

This scandal has also indelibly stained the reputation of The Second Mile, the charity Jerry Sandusky founded in 1977 as a foster-care program for at-risk kids. Turns out the kids were most at-risk from Sandusky himself.

The Second Mile was one of George Bush Sr.’s Thousand Points of Light and probably did some good work. But the grand jury says Sandusky met his victims through The Second Mile. So even if the program survives this scandal, it will always be remembered as Jerry Sandusky’s private sandbox for recruiting rape victims.

As for the alleged child-rapist himself, you have to stand amazed at his gall. He actually had the brass to title his autobiography “Touched: The Jerry Sandusky Story.” What is that, the punch line of a sick joke?

I don’t want to hear any more “benefit of hindsight” excuses. So let’s be clear about what you should do if you learn that a child is being sexually abused. Print this out, post it on your bulletin board, and make sure everyone in your family, company, or organization knows how to respond to child sexual abuse.

1. If you see an act of child abuse in progress, step in and STOP IT. I have to wonder why the grad assistant who witnessed the rape felt he only had to report it to someone. Why didn’t he jump in, knock Sandusky on his butt, and protect the child? If you see a child being raped by an adult, please have the guts and good sense to intervene.

2. If a child tells you he or she is being abused, don’t panic, don’t act shocked. Make sure the child feels supported and protected. Say, “You did the right thing in telling me.”

3. Believe the child. Even if the offender is “good old Uncle Charlie,” tell the child, “I believe you.” It takes a courage for kids to speak up because they fear they won’t be believed. Kids need to know you’re on their side, and they almost never imagine sex acts unless they’ve experienced them.

4. Tell the child that he or she is not bad. Say, “He knew better; you didn’t know. We’ll make sure he can’t touch you again.”

5. Focus on the child’s needs. Don’t think about the reputation of any individual or organization. The moment you shift your focus off of what’s best for the child, you’re on the wrong side of the issue.

6. Don’t confront the offender in front of the child. Keep adult discussions away from the child. Kids need to feel protected. They don’t need to be upset, disturbed, and frightened.

7. Report the crime to the police. Law enforcement agencies in your area have trained investigators who will talk with you and the child, and who know exactly how best to handle the situation.

And don’t you dare tell me that you don’t have the heart to have “good old Uncle Charlie” arrested. If Uncle Charlie is molesting a child, protect that child!

I’ve heard too many horror stories of people who protected “good old Uncle Charlie” or “good old Coach Sandusky” instead of protecting children. You must have absolute moral clarity: Child molesters belong in jail where they can’t hurt children. If you don’t call the police, then you are an accomplice and no better than a molester yourself.

8. If the molester is a member of the clergy, DO NOT report the abuse to church officials. If the molester is a coach or teacher, DO NOT report the abuse to the school authorities. Some churches and organizations worry more about lawsuits and bad publicity than about kids. Just call the police.

9. Don’t call Child Protective Services—investigating crimes is not the function of CPS. If the police determine that CPS should be involved, they will make that decision.
Don’t let the predator talk you out calling the police. Most predators are amazingly persuasive—that’s how they entice their victims, and that’s how they get people to cover for them instead of reporting them. Don’t be taken in by a charming predator.

10. After you call the police, call the ChildHelp National Child Abuse Hotline at 1-800-4ACHILD (1-800-422-4453). The ChildHelp counselor will listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and direct you to local support services for the child.

Finally, don’t you ever use the “benefit of hindsight” excuse! I’ve armed you with the foresight to do the right thing to protect a child—and that child is counting on you.

The reason I tell you all this? Because, I was once that boy.
