Today’s alarming news.

Scientists Explain Alarming Loss of Mental Function in Southern California, Northern California Mental Affliction Remains a Mystery

University of Southern California researchers have announced a study today that they claim shows a direct link between widespread brain damage and vehicular air pollution.

Governor Brown was extremely concerned about the news.

“They say that this isn’t just a matter of damage to your lungs but also to your mind.  If this is a real phenomenon it could be affecting judgment in daily life and just as importantly, if not more, at the polling stations… well, it means that we need to act fast to evaluate whether this is a very bad thing or somewhat beneficial,” said California Governor Jerry Brown, taking a deep breath and giving an emphatic nod.

There is concern that it could be affecting the young.   Earth Liberation Front spokesman Dweezil Coypu said that eliminating vehicles is a valid option if it can save just  [more…]

Marine Sgt. Takes Sniper Round To The Head; Smokes A Cigarette 15 Minutes Later.

“Manning the top of a compound south of Sangin, Afghanistan, Sgt. Paul “Headshot” Boothroyd III took a sniper round to the head. He landed face down onto the muddy roof with a thud.

Suck on that, enemy insurgent sniper bastards.

Good on yer, Sgt. Boothroyd – glad you are ok.  And kudos for one of the most awesome photos ever.

I’m pretty sure I missed something here.  Something crucial.

The NOPD is investigating the fatal shooting of man they describe as an “armed home intruder.”

[snip]

According to investigators, 21-year-old Melvin Plummer of Marrero entered a house occupied by a 30-year-old woman and her three children and brandished a handgun.  The woman, who has a concealed weapons permit, pulled a gun and shot Plummer multiple times.

E-M-S paramedics transported the suspect to a hospital where he later died.  The name of the man who was shot has not been released.

Police say the investigation is ongoing, but for now they are classifying the shooting as “justifiable.”

Chalk one up for the CCW folks.  Please notice that she didn’t go out and shoot a bunch of nice people;  The woman was a legal gun owner.)

By the way, I wouldn’t begin to know how to choose fashion-conscious stuff for the wife.

Obama Practices What He Preaches

As is his customary style, Obama sought to maintain a balanced center, imploring Democrats and Republicans alike to be reasonable and fair-minded in the budget process.

President Obama said to the Republicans, “You want everybody to act like adults, quit playing games and realize it is not my way or the highway.”

Responding to Obama’s charisma and strong leadership style, Boehner and Reid pledged renewed efforts to completely rework the budget in order to find a solution acceptable to everyone.

Wow.  I guess the Health Care Reform was just an isolated incident.  No, not really.

Update:

It is 10:15pm and I gave up and called CW rather than wait for her to call me.  There was an emergency case that came through that the docs had to deal with so they just now finished stitching the boy up.  Sixteen stitches to his knee and some decent opiates, so even though I have not seen his latest “owie” (his words) I can guess that it looked gross.  Good thing they took him to the regular hospital since the urgent care left a lot of debris in the wound.  They haven’t left yet so… we wait.

I got a call from Cruel Wife while I was at work today.  Through casual conversation she frantically told me the news…

Frankenboy slipped on the bricks next to the fireplace and gashed his knee clean open. Yay!

Stitches.  Blood.  Hollerin’.  Bloody mess.

Thing about owning a dog like Zoe-pup – it means never having to clean up a bloody mess yourself.  I got home and the place was spotless and really just cleaner than clean.

On the way home I stopped by the pharmacy and picked him up a rubber snake – and put a bandaid on it’s knee.  Wherever that is.

They’re still there getting him patched up so I’ll fill y’all in later.  Had no idea it would stretch out this long.

There is a gentleman in the blogosphere who could use your help. He is having some setbacks in his adoption of two girls, because of paperwork not properly done by his lawyer in the beginning. I should say “Setbacks” (capital “S”). It is costing him lots of time, money, and even his physical well-being. Tough row to hoe. So if you are able, whether it be kind words, donations, prayers… He could sure use it.

A topic that makes my blood boil, my vision goes red, and I growl…

Why would you put limits in a library for viewers under 18, but not for over 18 and make it so lax that you can view lots of good ol’ fashioned smut and more?  Is a public library the forum to be viewing pornographic materials?  I supposed it will be the day that DisneyWorld shows Wanda Whips Wall Street.

This frightening ****er. was caught, thank God.

There are some scary liberals out there that think freedom of speech (which originally meant freedom from persecution by the government for political speech) means that people have a free pass to engage in whatever kind of sick thing suits their fancy in a public library.

Prior to this in Tulare County, California – a librarian, Brenda Biesterfeld, was fired for calling the police after observing a man browsing… wait for it… child pornography in her library. She is trying to get her job back and compensation and is now being legally represented by Liberty Counsel.

Amazingly, her records were altered after she was fired, to show “plausible reason” why she was appropriately let go.

Liberty Counsel even obtained a performance evaluation given Jan. 15 by Judy Hill, the supervisor who fired Biesterfeld, stating she was performing satisfactorily.

Even while her case continues, Biesterfeld was honored by city officials in Lindsay and the Family Friendly Libraries, which gave her a Gold Star Award for her actions.

It also was Hill who, when police made the arrested and confiscated the computer, told officers they had no business enforcing the child pornography law within the library, according to reports.

Randy Thomasson, chief of the Campaign for Children and Families, a prominent pro-family leadership group, said he also was working to build support for the librarian.

“Our goal is to get Brenda’s job back, to institute a new library policy that has no tolerance for obscenity and child pornography, and to send a nationwide message that child predators will not be allowed to ‘do their thing’ in libraries,” he said.

Thomasson said the local battle has significant national implications.

“We’re also defending children nationwide,” he said. “You see, the American Library Association, which is the controlling influence over libraries nationwide, views pornography and obscenity as ‘intellectual freedom.’ Because of this, many libraries in the U.S. allow child pornographers to use their Internet system undetected and unreported. Is it any wonder why child molestation has become so common?”

According to the association’s own Web page regarding intellectual freedom and censorship, it is not the work of a library to protect children from material that is “legally obscene.”

Does anyone hear echoes of a liberal at some point saying “but it’s for the children…“? Well, if everything is for the children, why is this not a HUGE issue? The most innocent in our society aren’t getting real protection where it is desperately needed.

And yes, you heard it right… pornography and obscenity is “intellectual rights” within a public library, and gosh, police have no business enforcing the law in a library.  How many perverts executing a “manual override” in the library are reading American Scientist whilst casually browsing porn.

Can someone please respond and tell me why chemical castration is not allowed in cases where rape or child molestation occurs?
