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.

That image was edited by applying GIMP photoedits directly to different scales of a wavelet transformed image.

Too cool or what?

You know how I’ve said “If it is your time to go, it is your time to go”?  Well, another example of someone whose time it was to NOT go.

For some reason there’s a lot of pissing and moaning about Arizona deciding to actually enforce immigration laws.

“If every state had its own laws, we wouldn’t be one country; we’d be 50 different countries,” said Thomas Saenz, president and general counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund.

No, we’d be a republic of sovereign states, which is what we are supposed to be you dipsh*t.

There was a day that people kept their mouths shut unless they felt something was important enough to stand behind.

For example, I’ll stand behind Mohammed’s Secret.

Only now (h/t to cbullitt at Soylent) there appears to be a whole new breed of folks that are unwilling to own up to what they say and do.  I’d have even respected Ms. Norris if she’d withdrawn and published an apology (wouldn’t have thought much of her but I’d respect her handling).

But what’s she doing?  Denying it.

I am NOT involved in “Everybody Draw Mohammd [sic] Day!””I made a cartoon that went viral and I am not going with it… Many other folks have used my cartoon to start sites, etc.  Please go to them as I am a private person who draws stuff. – Molly Norris

She wanted attention and then freaked when it was too much and/or it wasn’t the type she wanted.

This particular cartoon of a ‘poster’ seems to have struck a gigantic nerve, something I was totally unprepared for. – Molly Norris

Was she not paying attention to the news the last few years?

Take responsibility.  Grow some guts.  Rent a spine.  Something.

As soon as the pr0n industry gets their… uh… hands on it, the price will drop dramatically.   Look what they’ve done for the internet.

Ok, bad example.

Our president, showing that underneath all the masculine charm and eloquent verbiage there is really nothing internal to himself to hold himself upright.  No spine, no guts.  So let’s just capitulate to North Korea, why don’t we?  Looks like his cadre of sycophants aren’t up to the job of being an external spine for him.

Let me make myself abundantly clear:  If you allow the enemy to be on a level of equals with yourself you are as good as validating and supporting their behavior.

The argument will be that 6-way talks weren’t successful so we had to try this.  But this wasn’t successful in the past, so if you argue for change then how do you go back two steps?

Good gravy – our president is another Jimmy Carter.

Watched Glenn Beck today on his 9/12 special in DC.

My neighbor and I were discussing issues on current events.  I said “Do you want America to be a Socialist state?”.   “Naw,” he said, “If I’d have wanted that I’d have moved to Canada or Europe.”

Good point.  So all you socialist wannabe’s… don’t let the door hit you on the butt as you leave.

The Dude has passed on a link showing that black publishers are saying that Wilson must be racist for saying “You lie!” to Obama.

I’m going to step out on a limb here but could part of the unconscious reason why there’s no desire to “move on” in black American minds be because there might be a loss of a tool to beat your opponents with?  Seriously, all one has to do is scream “RACIST” and there’s a no-rebuttal stigma slapped on the other party.    I saw that speech.  There was nothing racist there.

NNPA Chairman Danny J. Bakewell Sr. said. “Rep. Wilson’s remarks were racist, disrespectful, and a disingenuous violation — not only of President Obama — but to the institution of the presidency and only solidified our position and the importance in not spending black dollars where black people are not respected.

“The continued public and blatant disrespect of President Barack Obama by members of Congress will not be rewarded with our dollars nor will a state that continues to uphold America’s shameful past by flying the Confederate flag,” he added.

The key words here are “where black people are not respected”.  So all you have to do is “disrespect” a black person and it is racism now?   Could it really be that we’ve gone to the point where if a black person says he feels like someone was less than friendly with him then it must logically follow that the other person is racist?

Mr. Bakewell, you are obviously pretty full of yourself and the specialness of your blackness, and far more impressed by it than I am at that, but the simple truth is – Obama’s policies and actions play a far bigger part in any blatant disrespect to his person than the color of his skin.   Let’s take you and me for example, Mr. Bakewell:  I don’t think badly of you because of your skin color – I think less of you because of the words you utter and the fact that you are an idiot.

Getting really sick of this idea that if anything happens that some minority doesn’t like then it must be us whiteys who are racists.  I was brought up to hate racism so it’s particularly offensive when people claim it frivolously.

Tried phone sex but I kept slipping off.  Don’t know if this is true, but to listen in on someone’s conversations when it has nothing to do with terrorism… you’re a double-skunk.

Why don’t I believe that this will make a difference?  Obama tries secretly to convince Iraqis to not deal with Bush on pullout timetable without Congress’ approval.   Seems to me that he’s lost sight of what constitutional powers are given to whom.  This would be about the time when he and the other party’s nominee would be getting briefings on close-held world events.

Mr. Obama’s conversations with the Iraqi leaders, confirmed to The Washington Times by his campaign aides, began just two weeks after he clinched the Democratic presidential nomination in June and stirred controversy over the appropriateness of a White House candidate’s contacts with foreign governments while the sitting president is conducting a war.

Catfish with a taste for human flesh?  I guess it’s ok, I’ve got a taste for catfish flesh, also dead/burnt.  Kinda creepy though, since it’s decided it likes human sushi.

Alcohol was involved.  Hmmm.  I’ve never heard of stoned people doing extreme violence.  Pouring boiling water on your husband’s groin is about as violent as it gets.

Only in Britain could you be ordered to take down your barbed wire fence because it might hurt thieves.  No, that’s not right, it could happen here in the US, too.

Somehow, people have mysteriously been spotted walking around without spines.  ACORN was pushing them to sign up again and again to vote, yet they did it even though they knew it wasn’t right.  We’ve gotta start looking for donors.

Sad, but if she was allowed out, she could have spoken to someone or made a fuss.  She permitted this to happen.  That said, he needs a good kneecapping.
