The "Gimmies" March









WALLER COUNTY, Texas — A group of armed members of the New Black Panther Party marched on the Waller County Jail Wednesday afternoon chanting “The revolution is on… Off the pigs,” and “Oink Oink… Bang Bang!” The group of about fifteen Black Panthers exercised their First and Second Amendment rights. The group was met in Waller County by a large contingent of Harris County (Houston) Sheriff’s Office deputies.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * 

What  "revolution" are they chanting about? What is their goal? Who do they think is their enemy

Imagine. A group of heavily armed malcontents show up in front of a police station shouting about a "revolution" and killing the police.

That's conduct far and above exercising their 1st and 2nd Amendment rights.  They were - in fact - declaring war on the police.

And there they stood, unchallenged,  shouting insults and threatening death to the police, assault weapons at the ready. They are either stupid, crazy or very, very lucky. 

To be truthful, I'm a bit surprised they are all still alive.

To believe that the police are afraid of them and will not push back is pure folly. The police are simply trying to defuse the situation peacefully, but when they had had enough, they will put a stop to this mind-boggling stupidity. And it will be very, very bloody.

What are their goals?

Here is excerpts from the Black Panther  "Platform and Program":


1. We want freedom. We want power to determine the destiny of our Black Community.
2.We want full employment for our people.
3. We want an end to the robbery by the white man of our Black Community.
4. We want decent housing, fit for shelter of human beings.
5. We want education for our people that exposes the true nature of this decadent American society.       We want education that teaches us our true history and our role in the present-day society.
6. We want all black men to be exempt from military service.
7. We want an immediate end to police brutality and murder of black people.
8. We want freedom for all black men held in federal, state, county and city prisons and jails.
9. We want all black people when brought to trial to be tried in court by a jury of their peer group or people from their black communities, as defined by the Constitution of the United States.
10. We want land, bread, housing, education, clothing, justice and peace. And as our major political objective, a United Nations-supervised plebiscite to be held throughout the black colony in which only black colonial subjects will be allowed to participate for the purpose of determining the will of black people as to their national destiny.

That's an impressive list of "wants". 

Numbers 6, 8, and 10 pretty much take the whole thing off the rails. Particularly number 10, where they want the United Nations to create a black nation  in which only blacks will be allowed to participate in.

There is already a place like that... Africa.

But they would have to work for what they want in Africa... nobody to just take it from.

That's gotta suck.

Curiosity's Curious "Crab" Creature



The Mar's rover curiosity send back the below photo of a quite strange "something" on a cliff face on Mars.





It's hard for me to just conclude that this "something" is some sort of natural rock formation. The possibility that it is a living crab-like creature crawling around the rocks is incredibly slim, but it just might be some sort of plant growth rooted into a crevice in the cliff face.

The circular shape pretty much eliminates the possibly that it is lava, or mud, or some kind of flowing mixture oozing out of the cliff face, since it's apparently "hanging"  vertically, so the shape would slump into an oval, and certainly not ooze upward as some of the features indicate.

Who knows what it is.. We sure Don't.  Nor does NASA.

But it sure is interesting.

The Husband Store AND The Wife Store







From Uncle Bob's Treehouse: (different Bob)

"A store that sells new husbands has opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

"You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to The Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

"Floor 1 – These men have Jobs.
"She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

"Floor 2 – These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.
"‘That’s nice,’ she thinks, ‘but I want more.’
"So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

"Floor 3 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.
"‘Wow,’ she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
"She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.
"‘Oh, mercy me!’ she exclaims, ‘I can hardly stand it!’
"Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads

 Floor 5 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.
"She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

"Floor 6 – You are visitor 81,456,012 to this floor.

"There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at The Husband Store.


"To avoid gender bias charges, the store’s owner opened The Wife Store just across the street with the  same rules as the Hushand store.

"The first floor has wives that love sex.
"The second floor has wives that love sex, have money and can really cook.
"The third floor has wives that love sex, have money, can really cook and are drop dead gorgeous.
"The fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited."

Now, don't be blaming me for posting this, it's already all over the internet.






A Stiunned Michelle O

In public, no less.



Your president greeting a gay supporter, or something.


We are informed that Obama wants this photo eliminated from everywhere forever, but Wirecutter (http://knuckledraggin.com/)wants us to spread it everywhere....

Guess who wins.

Cecil The Lion

The dentist who paid over $40,000 to go hunt down a lion has got himself in all manner of hot water, actual legal trouble in Africa, and all manner of social/business trouble back here.

His guides took him to the very edge of a National park where lions - an endangered species  - were protected. The lion was lured out of the park by  the "guides" and killed less than a half-mile away form the park border.



Cecil.
Lured out of a national park by a trail of raw meat and then
shot with a bow and arrow from cover. He was mortally wounded
 but took over a day to die.


Now, big game hunting has been a  sport for centuries. Kings, Pharaohs, politicians,  from famous people to ordinary dudes... all have partaken in this activity..

Of course, in King Tut's day, a Pharaoh that was killed in a hunting accident, nothing was endangered as it is today. In Teddy Roosevelt's day, nothing was endangered. Roosevelt even had a stuffed animal named after him, the teddy bear.

Today, hunting is a legal and very popular pasttime in America. But it is carefully regulated to insure the continuing survival of our wild game, and the idea of luring an animal with bait and then killing it from the safety of cover with  armed "guards" to protect you - just an case - is as repulsive as it is illegal.

That's one point.

My second point is that what this dentist did was not "hunting". What he did was pay some dudes to lure a lion out of its safe zone to an area where this guy was waiting with his bow and arrow, hidden and in absolute safety (his guides were armed with big guns for protection). That's not being the big, manly macho-dude hunter, that's being a cowardly loser and done strictly for ego boosting and a false sense of being a real man.  I can see no honor or reward in this kind of conduct.

A bow and arrow.

Instead of a huge rifle like the .416 Rigby, ,404 Jeffery, or the massive .505 Gibbs, weapons that can easily down a charging bull elephant, this mighty hunter used a bow and arrow. Why?  Must have enhanced his"feeling" of personal danger..

Turns out this dentist has killed many animals in his quest for self-esteem and manhood. In one instance alone, he paid $35,000 for the chance to gun down a elk.

That brings up my third point.

If I were a patient of this guy, and I found out he has spent tens of thousands of dollars just to kill animals to boost his self image, I would realize I have been getting greatly overcharged for his dental services, screwed in fact.

I would cancel any future appointments I had with this dude and walk away.

And now we are told this dentist has gone into hiding.  Can't take the heat for his actions. That pretty much proves his true level of manhood, doesn't it?

An up-scale dentist once charged - once - a family member $800 to pull a tooth. Maybe it's time to take a closer took at what these dentists are charging for their work. I know that dental insurance is almost impossible to get because of the cost. I can only conclude that insurance companies consider dentists as wildly overpriced and have adjusted their fees accordingly.


Paying Off The National Debt


Here's the situation:





One look and you just know this is not gong to end well.

Since before Reagan, the federal government  has being on a spending binge unequaled in the history of the world, in the history of mankind, in the history of the entire known universe. Only only possible way to pay it off - which is considered  impossible - is the tax the living hell out of a nation whose entire  industrial and manufacturing base has been intentionally exported - by this very same government - offshore to competing, even unfriendly nations.

Taxing people with no jobs, poor paying jobs, jobs stolen by illegals who send their money out of country,  taxing a nation with 49% of its population on some sort of welfare and/or government support to pay off a 18+ TRILLION debt?

Don't make me laugh.

Patronage To The European Union?




The European Union. Even as it disintegrates before our eyes,
 it is attempting to reach across  to us and direct American lives.
Is Google aiding and abetting this effort?



The following just popped up on my blogger page from Google:


European Union laws require you to give European Union visitors information about cookies used on your blog. In many cases, these laws also require you to obtain consent. 

As a courtesy, we have added a notice on your blog to explain Google's use of certain Blogger and Google cookies, including use of Google Analytics and AdSense cookies. 

You are responsible for confirming this notice actually works for your blog, and that it displays. If you employ other cookies, for example by adding third party features, this notice may not work for you. Learn more about this notice and your responsibilities.



European Union laws? When did I become obligated to obey European Union laws?

Additionally, I have seen nothing on my blog page explaining anything, and...

Just who made me "responsible" to make sure my blog is European Union compliant? Who gave them that authority?

If Google has decided it's going to require American citizens to answer to European Union laws, it may be time to ask:

What European Union law are we being required by Google to observe and obey?
Is there a treaty between the United states and the EU that allows this coercion to occur?  
Why should any American Blogger be concerned about the EU and its invasive laws?
Is Blogger just kowtowing to the EU at the expense of its American users?
What justification is being offered for this invasion of our sovereignty?

Just asking.

If European Union "visitors" have a need for me to explain my blog to them, they can just stay away.

Camille Paglia




Camille Paglia. A very smart human.

I have read many articles by by Camille Paglia who has been writing for Salon Magazine  for many years.

I lot of what she says I agree with, a lot I don't. Not that it matters.

That being said, she commented on America's universities in a recent interview, part of which I post here:

* * * * * * * * * *

I prophesied this in a piece I wrote in 1992 for the Times Literary Supplement called “The Nursery-School Campus”.  At the time, nobody understood what I was saying.  But I was arguing that the obsessive focus by American academe with students’ emotional well-being was not what European universities have ever been concerned with. European universities don’t have this consumer-oriented view that they have to make their students enjoy themselves and feel good about themselves, with everything driven by self-esteem. Now we have people emerging with Ivy League degrees who have no idea how little they know about history or literature.  Their minds are shockingly untrained. They’ve been treated as fragile emotional beings throughout their schooling.  The situation is worsening year by year, as teachers have to watch what they say and give trigger warnings, because God forbid that American students should have to confront the brutal realities of human life.
Meanwhile, while all of this nursery-school enabling is going on, we have the entire world veering towards ISIS–with barbaric decapitations and gay guys being thrown off roofs and stoned to death.  All the harsh realities of human history are erupting, and this young generation is going to be utterly unprepared to deal with it. The nation is eventually going to be endangered by the inability of several generations of young people to make political decisions about a real world that they do not understand. The primitive realities of human life are exploding out there!
* * * * * * * * * * *
Scary stuff, and most probably very true. Particularly the part about how " this young generation is going to be utterly unprepared to deal with it."
The entire article is posted at Salon. In my view, it is worth reading, and should be required reading for those who think everything is just fine. Unfortunately, those "shockingly untrained" minds would most likely laugh it all off as dissonant babble. 
Until the bottom falls out.

And even when that happens, they will still have no clue as to what happened, or why.


According To The News...





For those of you who think ignoring the news will keep you safe, or worry free, or whatever,  here's a reminder that just running your business based on your Constitutional rights can get you destroyed by the government.

* * * * * * * * *

A judge for the Oregon Bureau of Labor and Industries (BOLI) recommended a lesbian couple should receive $135,000 in damages for their emotional suffering after Sweet Cakes by Melissa refused to make them a wedding cake. 
As a result - Aaron and Melissa Klein could lose everything they own — including their home.

* * * * * * * * *

Emotional suffering. When was the last time you saw a lesbian who  was enduring emotional suffering over a cake?

Liberals, progressives, feminists,  etc, - that whole batch of freedom haters - will attack and try to destroy anyone who disagrees with their opinions and beliefs. Their vitriol and hatred for anyone who marches to a different drummer is legendary in America.

However, people who agree with Sweet Cakes by Melissa have donated  $250,000 in support of that action, so  Aaron and Melissa get to keep their home, although their business was destroyed by the real haters of this nation.

The other side is starting to stand up and tell these people who just can't mind their own business when somebody says or does something they don't like - even if it is Constitutionally protected - to  get lost.

These aforementioned liberals, progressives, feminists,  etc, just can't seem to grasp the reality that the Constitution protects this freedom of choice, for the very reason that there will always be people around who get all insulted over what something somebody else says - or does - and will want the law changed to suit their particular world view. It drives them to distraction that the Constitution is still the law of the land and indeed does protect those who have the gall to disagree with their attitudes and opinions.

That's why Obama is their hero and savior, he is utterly destroying the Constitution and the personal protections it provides.. By the time these geniuses realize the error of their ways - that they are also losing those protections - it will be too late to prevent the tyranny of the coming dictatorship, one that will make the world of "1984"  childlike by comparison. Stalin called people like them "useful idiots".

Of course, the reality that Sweet Cakes by Melissa was hauled into court and fined $135,000 for making a Constitutionally protected choice demonstrates that this new reality is now at hand,

The consequence is that all these people who who thrive on getting insulted by the actions of others and then attack them endlessly are going to have to live in the world they are creating. And like they have always said, "payback is a bitch".

And the selling of aborted baby parts? I'm not going there but the backlash to that is going to get HUGE

Snicker....



Hillary's latest logo change:






It matches her nationwide slide in the polls.

They say it has something to do with the public perception of her honesty and truthfulness.

Or maybe it's just because our nation full of "youth loving" chasers of rainbows are starting to have problems with the idea of a 70+  year-old grandmother running things

Remember, most of today's voters were raised with the mantra*: "Don't trust anyone over thirty", even if they are all way over thirty. Real disconnect there.

Maybe it's just the wrinkles.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

*For you inner city denizens:

Mantra - a statement or slogan repeated frequently.
