An Eye For An Eye....

From the Dallas Morning News"

The family of Jabraylon Bables should be out buying Christmas toys for the bright, talkative boy everyone called "Bam Bam."

On Saturday, the 16-month-old toddler died from the massive injuries and the onset of infections he had suffered 36 days earlier after authorities say his mother's boyfriend dropped him into a pot of boiling water.

"From the injuries on the baby, I think he did it intentionally," one of the boy's aunts, Veronica Bables, said Monday. "I feel like he tortured him."

Carlnelus Delaney Simmons, a convicted murderer, remains in the Dallas County Jail accused of first-degree felony injury to a child. Simmons, 37, is also being held on two felony drug delivery charges. His bail totals $80,000.

What the hell was wrong with the mother? Having a drug-dealing convicted murderer as her boyfriend?

Authorities say the burns that covered Jabraylon's legs, feet, hand and buttocks did not match Simmons' account. He told police that he accidentally dropped hot water on the toddler.

I cannot begin to imagine the pain this infant felt while his extremities were being shoved into a pot of boiling water. Want an inkling? Go shove one finger - just for an instant- into a pot of boiling water. You will never forget the pain.

We are playing with real fire when we - as a society - allow two-legged animals like Carlnelus Delaney Simmons to live and walk amongst us. What he did to this baby is more than sufficient proof that he has forfeited his right to remain alive in this world.

This boiled-alive baby may have been the child of a failed family, a failed mother, even a failed race, but he certainly deserved his one chance in this world. This drug-dealing convicted murderer never allowed him that.

This man should be quickly tried and just as quickly executed. There is no reason on this earth to allow him to live, not even in prison.

How Far We Have Fallen

Look at the picture below. Study it in detail.

Now, try to imagine you being one of those two guardians of the gate during the process pictured.

What would be going through your mind?

That you were actually protecting Americans from bomb-toting terrorists by shaking down this white-haired disabled wheel chaired septuagenarian? Or older?

Would you be thinking that you were violating the rights of a citizen only because you were ordered to? Under threat of dismissal?

Would you be thinking that this job is just not worth it?

Or, as it seems to be in many cases, you wouldn't give a damn that you were being one of America's greatest creeps?

Never in the history of the world has a bomb-toting terrorist come even close to resembling this poor victim of gate rape.

How many of the TSA people are about to throw in the towel and walk away? Or are they going to keep on keeping on because they value their jobs more than their freedom?

As for me, I'd just walk off the job and sabotage some equipment as I left. No job is worth being reduced to what these TSA people have been reduced to.

Again I ask, how many terrorists has the entire TSA organization caught since they started all this?

Answer Violence With Violence?

Lordy lordy....

Royal protection officers seconds from drawing their guns on mob' after Camilla was HIT in ribs by thug through car's open window.

These rioters enjoy the protection of the law while they break it. That makes no sense to me.

Maybe we should remove that protection when a person - or a group of persons - willingly step outside the law to create this kind of mayhem. Particularly when they believe the worst that can happen to them is a few hours in jail, something they brag about to each other later.

They throw Molotov cocktails at the cops, a potentially deadly attack. They turn over and burn cars. They smash windows. They steal and plunder from the stores they destroy. All with the attitude that they are untouchable.

Perhaps its time to show them they are not immune from the consequences of their unlawfulness.

Gathering in a public protest is one thing. Doing what these out-of-control animals do is an entirely different matter. A bit of instant justice visited on their heads may just the thing to settle them down.

Of course,they would scream about police brutality and their civil rights. Too damn bad. If they want to spread hatred, fear and violence, lets give them an equal dose in return.

Ahhh, The Holidays

Tulsa Oklahoma is having another Christmas parade, the same Christmas parade they've had for the last seventy (70) years.

But this year, some zit in City government decided to rename the Christmas parade to the "holiday" parade.

Seems that logic - or anything approaching logic - is not something to be found in the Tulsa city government.

Christmas is a holiday. Easter is a holiday. St. Patricks Day is a holiday. Thanksgiving is a holiday.

So a holiday parade should have entries celebrating all the holidays. There should be a float with an Easter bunny. A float with a drunk Irishman clutching a pot of gold. A float with a turkey getting a pardon from Obama.

You get the point.

The good people of Tulsa want their Christmas parade.. It is, after all, a parade celebrating Christmas, not one or more of the other many holidays. but some deskbound zit - who has issues with the idea - wants to change the name. Change the zit.

Only In Washington

See no evil:

WASHINGTON — the Obama administration and the Department of Defense have ordered the hundreds of thousands of federal employees and contractors not to view the secret cables and other classified documents published by Wikileaks and news organizations around the world unless the workers have the required security clearance or authorization.

Somewhere, deep in the bowels of Washington, someone has a real sense of humor.

It gets better:

Classified information, whether or not already posted on public websites or disclosed to the media, remains classified, and must be treated as such by federal employees and contractors, until it is declassified by an appropriate U.S. agency.

Gad. Classified information released to the public by any means, becomes PUBLIC information.

Anybody who thinks otherwise, or thinks that the released information will not be read by any government employee or contractor because they were told not to, seriously needs a reality check.

The government needs a new file cabinet, one labeled:


Give me a break. My sides are starting to hurt from all the laughing.

A Bit More On The Wikileaks Mess

The soldier who was supposed to have downloaded and copied all those 250,000 files?

They say he downloaded them to a Lady Ga-Ga CD.


Bradley Manning, the U.S. soldier that has admitted releasing the flies, said:

I would come in with music on a CD-RW labelled with something like 'Lady Gaga' … erase the music … then write a compressed split file. No one suspected a thing ...

Ever try to copy a file to a pre recorded CD? The initial information on the CD - in this case, the Lady Ga-Ga stuff - cannot be "erased" and replaced. It is burned into the disc by a laser.

Says Nate over at Vox Popoli:

... anyone who's ever had any contact with US secrecy knows the official story on the leaks is complete BS. Anyone accessing a file that their name is not directly associated with gets flagged. Clearance be damned. If the system only worked 1% of the time... it still would've thrown up 250 flags on this cat, and the wrath of the prince of darkness himself would've come down.

Remember the modus operandi of the CIA and NSA is to be under-estimated. They want everyone thinking they're stupid and incompetent. It makes their job easier. This wasn't "leaked". It was deliberately given out... either by the US, or a US rival.

So... The official story stinks on ice.

Who really released all those files?

The person most damaged by the leaks is Hillary Clinton, who - shortly after the information was released - announced that her political career would end with her present job. She is certainly correct about that... Her political career is now over.

Who is/was most worried about her running for president?

Good old Barry and his gang of unelected Czars in the White House.

Some Serious Navel Gazing

The Senate Minority Leader goes nuclear:

WASHINGTON – Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell is calling the founder of the online site WikiLeaks a "high-tech terrorist" for releasing classified material from the U.S. government.

McConnell says that the online release of secret diplomat exchanges has done "enormous damage" to the country and to its relationship with its allies.

"high-tech terrorist". "enormous damage". Charges like that against anyone by a sitting United States Senator are serious indeed.

Enormous damage has been done. There is no argument about that. But lets step back a bit and look this over.

There are - at least - two kinds of damage to be looked at here. There is the overall damage done to the image and reputation of the United States by the release of these documents, and then there is the actual damage itself that has been done by the actions and activities of the people these documents expose.

Which is worse? The real damage, or the reporting of it?

But this all may be just the beginning. Julius Assange has just threatened the release of 100,000 far more horrid and damaging documents if he is arrested or his site is attacked again. He has released thousands of encrypted files to thousands of sites worldwide containing the documents. These sites need only the password to unlock these files, and more than a few individuals have the password in case Assange is silenced.

It is a no-win situation for us. But is Julius Assange, a man who admittedly hates the United States, responsible for all this?

No. It is the government officials whose conduct these documents expose who are responsible.

Enormous damage has been done to the United States, but to blame the release of documents for it is to condemn the wrong criminal. It is the people whose actions and activities these documents expose who are responsible.

The United States needs secrecy in many of its activities. Our diplomats need confidentiality and privacy in their dealings with other nations. But we as American citizens should have the confidence in the government that when a man such as Julius Assange surfaces, what he reveals will not be a national embarrassment and cause enormous damage.

There can be no doubt that those new 100,000 documents will be released sooner or later. Julius Assange and the people behind him are enemies of our Republic, our nation and our way of life. They will not stop their attacks. We can only hold our breath as to what new damage will be caused and what new embarrassments will be revealed.

Mitch McConnell - and others - wants to blame Julis Assange. But Assange is just a flea on the elephants back. We need to take control of the elephant... And the donkey.

The thing these people in Washington and elsewhere fear most is term limits. To be sent home after two terms is their greatest nightmare... The loss of power and influence, the ending of that feeling of superior intelligence, the expulsion from that crowd of Washington elites.

We should get to work - all of us in all 50 States - and get a Constitutional Amendment passed for term limits next election cycle.

What would these limits be? Two two-year terms for House members. Two four-year terms for Senators and presidents. Two six-year terms for ALL Judges, including those on the Supreme Court.

Yes, it is time to put our judges back inside a fence. They have all proven beyond a doubt they cannot maintain their impartiality and are not worthy of lifetime appointments.

That would be an enormous first step to fixing our problems.

Great Find For My Emergency Stash

This is real whole milk that can be stored for months at room temperature.

Provided by Gossner Foods in Utah, this all-American product was founded in 1966 by Edwin Gossner Sr, who had devoted his life to his passion of making fine Swiss cheese. With a combined 120 years of cheese making experience, state of the art equipment, and a team of dedicated employees; Gossner Foods is a leader in the dairy industry.

What began as a strictly Swiss cheese plant has expanded until now over 30 varieties of cheese carry the Gossner name.

Gossner Foods also processes UHT (Ultra High Temperature) shelf stable milk in a variety of flavors. This milk, which is aseptically packaged, can sit on the shelf for months without refrigeration and is ideal for food storage, camping, school lunches, and your emergency stash.

There are no preservatives or growth hormones in this milk, which comes in several varieties and container sizes.

And - other than tasting a bit richer than the milk we usually buy - There is no detectable "this is stored or powdered stuff" taste, even when opened right off the shelf at room temperature. Why? Because its just ordinary liquid milk that has had an additional processing (UHT) step added.

Check out their tab "Frequently Asked Questions about U.H.T. Shelf Stable Milk". Good stuff.

We found this product at our local Dollar Store, which at first made me suspicious of it, but I decided to check it out anyway.

Glad I did.

The World's Bigget Fools... Us

The federal reserve is not our friend:

The financial crisis stretched even farther across the economy than many had realized, as new disclosures show the Federal Reserve rushed trillions of dollars in emergency aid not just to Wall Street but also to motorcycle makers, telecom firms and foreign-owned banks in 2008 and 2009.

My God... How much longer are we going to allow these thieving bastards to plunder our money?

This man is not your friend, he is a dangerous enemy

Men like Bernanke and those of his ilk should be tried as traitors by the American people and then hung. They have taken our money by the trillions and thrown it away like so much sand in the ocean. They are doing damage to our nation that Hitler, or Stalin, or Mao, could have only dreamed of.

And here we sit, solidly on our thumbs, looking forward to the useless junk our next paycheck will allow to buy.

But... But... It's the Christmas season! We all need more stuff!

What we all need is more sense.
