This is a bit disturbing. . . . .

 If you can't feel the walls closing in,  your not paying attention. 

You’ll have to pardon us for not sharing in the celebratory mood. That’s because around here, we have a fondness for data points that governments can’t massage -- like sales tax revenue, income tax revenue… and rail traffic.
What do we see in the latest weekly rail traffic data? Yikes…
Rail traffic plummeted in the fourth quarter and now sits very near the low it set around a year ago. It would be much worse were it not for a 71% year-over-year increase in auto shipments. And the trend going forward is anything but certain.

  Well, that wasn’t even close. The Senate confirmed Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke for a second term yesterday. The critical juncture was the “cloture” vote to close off debate, which required 60 senators voting “yea.” It got 77. The nomination itself got 70 votes. That’s actually the lowest vote total of any Fed chairman up for reappointment ever.
The most ominous sentence we encountered in mainstream coverage of the story was in The Wall Street Journal: “Bernanke backers… said the Fed chairman deserved an opportunity to finish what he started.” Which is exactly what we fear most.

White House to paint grim fiscal picture:

No Kidding?   Reeeeeeeheheheehly?   Said with sarcasm literally dripping from every word.

Grim is hardly what I would call it.   Financial Apocalypse is more like it.

Obama pairs a push for jobs with 

proposed spending cuts

This one will be fun to watch.    I am still trying to figure out how we can cut spending and spend 100 billion creating jobs.  Just what jobs, no one is quit certain of.    I can tell you the streets and highways should be spiffy clean now.

Obama to Propose $3.8 Trillion Budget

 The 2,000-page, 10-pound book, which retails to the public for $37 a pop, is a blueprint for spending that is likely to include requests for more money for education, $25 billion more for cash-strapped states, increased spending for the National Institutes of Health, the Energy Department, the National Science Foundation and the Census Bureau, which this year is conducting its decennial count of people living in the United States.

 I say:  No surprise here but. . . .Um. . . . Where in the H- E- Double Hockey Sticks are these bucks coming from.     You guessed it,  as that loquacious lady of legerdemain from DEE-troit once put it;  "From Obama's stash!"  Of course that would be your wallet.

Obama Jobs Program Could Cost $100 Billion.

 No Comment here.  Oh hell,  I can't help my self,  Did you read the first headline.  Where is this cash coming from.   There are some out there who either just don't care or can't or can't cogitate such big numbers or where they are coming from.   We are already broke and now we're going to spend 100 billion here and 3.8 trillion there. . . Oh my. . . . .

Get rid of this Guy and give McCain the boot too!

Feingold in real electoral trouble in Wisconsin?

From Hot Air

January 28, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

If Republicans have taken to calling Scott Brown ‘41′ as a nickname after his victory in Massachusetts, perhaps Democrats can start calling Russ Feingold ‘43.’  No, that’s not to say that Feingold will switch parties and bring a friend along for company.  That’s the percentage of likely voters in Wisconsin that would support Feingold over potential challenger and former Governor Tommy Thompson in a head-to-head match this fall:

One more Democratic senator who has long been regarded as a safe prospect for reelection may be facing a challenging year in 2010.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in Wisconsin finds Republican Tommy Thompson edging incumbent Russ Feingold 47% to 43% in a hypothetical U.S. Senate match-up. Five percent (5%) like some other candidate, and four percent (4%) are undecided.
Any incumbent who attracts less than 50% support at this point in a campaign is considered potentially vulnerable.
Thompson, who served as governor of the state from 1987 to 2001 and as secretary of Health and Human Services in President George W. Bush’s first term, is being urged by Republicans to enter the race. However, it remains unclear if he will enter the race. Feingold is seeking a fourth six-year term in the Senate this November.

Until just recently, people calculating risk for Democratic incumbents have mostly focused on the obvious problems in otherwise red states.  Arkansas (Lincoln) and Indiana (Bayh) have gotten a lot of attention, as has Nevada, which is more independent than red but where Majority Leader Harry Reid is drowning in voter anger over the Obama-Pelosi agenda.  Massachusetts made it clear that no state was entirely safe for Democrats, but in Massachusetts, Democrats didn’t have a longtime incumbent running in the race, either.

Wisconsin could be a big surprise, too.  It has sent reliable liberals like Feingold and Herb Kohl to the Senate for several cycles (21 years for Kohl, 17 years for Feingold), but outside of the big college towns, the state is more conservo-populist, not unlike the Dakotas.  Feingold has built a reputation for straight talk which has kept his constituents’ respect even when Feingold goes more to the left than they do.
Those days are apparently over.  Not only does Feingold trail Thompson by four points, his job approval numbers have gone underwater, 47/48.  The voting public has also turned more substantially away from Feingold on policy.  Fifty-nine percent want to see tax cuts as a cure for a bad economy, against only 15% for more government spending.  Almost two thirds (65%) reject the Democrats’ argument that the economy is improving (41% say worse, 24% says it’s the same), while only 28% believe it’s improving.

Can Barack Obama help Feingold in Wisconsin?  Obama won by a much larger margin than John Kerry did in 2004, but he’s not winning any more.  His job approval among likely Wisconsin voters has dropped underwater, with a majority disapproving (54%/46%, no one unsure).  Furthermore, the Democratic Governor, Jim Doyle, has even worse approval numbers — 36/62. He won’t be any help to Feingold, and may well help stoke Republican and independent turnout in the fall.
Thompson has not yet committed to this race, but the seat may be his for the asking.  It looks like 2010 will be at least as bad for Democrats in Wisconsin as anywhere else, and perhaps worse.

From Lakeshore Laments by:  Kevin Binversie
So once again, if Tommy jumps in, I'm gonna say I'll back him all the way, but can "Hamlet-Brett Favre" act stop once and for all?
Former Wisconsin Gov. and Health and Human Services Secretary Tommy Thompson is still considering a challenge to Sen. Russ Feingold (D).
In a brief interview Wednesday about the possibility of a Senate run this year, Thompson, a Republican, would only say: "I'm not saying no."
The former governor mused last fall about a potential gubernatorial or Senate run, but if he does mount a campaign this year, it's now almost certain to be a run against Feingold.
A Thompson-Feingold contest could become one of the country's marquee matchups. Republicans have so far been unable to recruit a top-tier challenger to take on Feingold, who is one of the body's most liberal senators.
That Thompson is seriously weighing a bid against Feingold illustrates how promising Republicans believe this November could be for the party. Following Scott Brown's shocking win Tuesday in the Massachusetts special Senate election and victories in the New Jersey and Virginia gubernatorial contests last November, GOP officials believe it will become easier to woo potential candidates.

 Kick these welfare haven,  spendaholics to the curb.  

Somebody Should let this government drone know that according to the govs on records such that they are, we are at nearly 25% unemployment.

Paulson: 25% unemployment rate

without AIG bailout

So please explain to me just how this bailout the mainly benefited AIG and Goldman Sachs, staved of the 2nd dark ages.

This tool should do us all a favor and pull his lower lip over his head and swallow.

Quit possibly an honest man. . .

Breaking News!!! Woodman's Agrees to Change Policy, Allows Open Carry!!!

Wednesday,  January 27,  2010


This from: ICarry.Org

Update by admin: Woodman's has reviewed any alleged policy and has opted to take the high road and not discriminate against the lawful behavior. Lawful open carry (WI) or container carry (IL) is fine. Follow the law and Woodmans has no problem with you.


I have not yet been able to veryify this from Woodman's but the news does come from Shaun Karnish of ICarry.Org so at this early date I have 98% confidence that this is so.

Stay tuned for further updates as they come in. If in fact this is true, Woodman's has my dollar back with no hard feelings and I will continue to shop and recommend Woodman's as the fine grocery they are.

I would like to thank Mr. Woodman and Clint for rethinking policy and doing the right thing. Thank you all at Woodman's!!!


I agree that Woodman's hires nice people, Woodman's was nice to me on the phone,  and I got the feeling that they do care. . . but they are basing there policy on erroneous information and unfounded fear.   

My wife has told me she feels bad because they are so nice and she really does not want to hurt them.   But she says it still doesn't make there policy right and she just wishes,  they would change their policy. 

It is not going to send their customers running and screaming out the door but it will make a difference because they choose to chase us out and they hold the belief that the majority of folks who are their customers,  are scared of the guns too.   Not true, we are not scared. 

We are prepared.   We are their customers as well. So are thousands of others just like us. We are willing to take on the responsibility of our own lives and protect ourselves and others.   Maybe it would be OK if Woodman's provided an armed body guard for everyone who wanted one. Or maybe they could do a pat down at the door.

Your customers should be scared.  They should be scared that you have left them defenseless and un-protected in a very dangerous world. This is a public access building that allows anyone, anyone at all, to enter without checking them for concealed weapons. 

You say you have a ban and yet the only time you enforce it is when I am legally carrying. What about all the concealed weapons that enter your store? Don't be naive. Don't play the “Oh gosh, nobody does that.” card on me.   Where is the armed guard at the door or the scanner etc.     Your policy puts your customers at risk.

For every 15 people,  there is one illegally carrying a concealed weapon.   Did you know that Mr. Woodman?   What are you going to do about those people.   As matter of fact,  It would be reasonable then;  Mr Woodman,  that if I were hurt by an assailant on your property,  that I could sue you because you prevented me from being able to protect my wife and my self.   Hmmmmmm.

There are a lot of people in this country that don't have a job, don't have money, and they are hungry.  I have seen them wandering around your store looking at my food filled cart with disdain. I have also run across there empty wrappers and pop cans on your shelves. I think you have a problem and it is not us.

My wife said;   "Just in the last year that I have shopped at Woodman's, there has been at least a handful of times that I've noticed someone;  both young and old, eyeballing my purse in my cart ready to grab it.   I am handicapped and use a motorized cart  so I backed up and pulled my purse to me.  One woman had her hand on my purse.  Ready to go.   This is not how things are supposed to be. " 

"Because I am handicapped, I spend several hours in the store when I shop and I have noticed on many occasions,  people just wondering the store without purchasing anything.   Checking my cart out etc.  Not waiting for a wife or husband, they are there alone. Just wandering your store waiting looking for an opportunity. And I tell ya, Mr. Woodman, I am not going to be anybodies opportunity.   I am not going to shoot somebody because they steal my purse, I may run them down with my cart, yell at the top of my lungs and get my purse back but if someone were to try to knife me or shoot me in a store robbery, I will defend my self.   But of course not in your store. Because you have disarmed the innocent and weak."

Why do you have a blind eye to the thugs and gang bangers and other less fortunates who are desperate and growing at an exponential rate. In these times, the innocent will suffer for your short sightedness. Maybe it is not shortsightedness, maybe you are just concerned about your bottom dollar and the safety of your customers comes in a distant second.

The Right to Carry.

LEAA Supports Right To Carry (RTC)
The Law Enforcement Alliance of America (LEAA) has supported right to carry efforts across the country for over a decade.  LEAA leaders and law enforcement officer members have testified in state capitols in favor of common sense measures that trust citizens with the right to self-defense. Our member officers know that bad guys carry guns regardless of the law and right to carry laws serve only to offer law-abiding citizens an improved opportunity for self-defense.

On a cheerier note. . . .

Hang onto your hats,  it's going to be a wild ride.

"discretionary budget freeze". . . . . 83% of the budget will not be affected at all by the freeze. . . . .the freeze will shave 2.5% off of the overall deficit. . . . .
I’d say you’d need to save at least 10 times the $250 billion to have any effect (not that that would suffice). . . . . he now urgently needs to come with a job creation plan that produces real results. And that will cost. A lot. Of money. That’s not there.

To get from  the fake 10% unemployement figure to a real 5% figure,  you need to add 400,000 jobs every single month for the next 60 months.   Doing what?   If created by Uncle Sam,  with what money? 

Mortgage rates are at a record low, the government buys and guarantees just about any and all loans in the market, gives $8000 premiums to buyers, and settles for a 3.5% downpayment. And in that environment, the November-December monthly drop in the number of existing homes sold was 16.7%, the biggest in over 40 years, in fact since records began. Now you ask yourself: how much more attractive can you make buying a home?

I happens to me quite often these days that when I read through the numbers, I see these images of Katrina in my mind's eye, but this time the destruction's nationwide, and there's nowhere to go, even as the country's going nowhere.

And everybody keeps having the wrong conversations. It’s no longer about how to return to prosperity, it’s about how to stave off mayhem, misery, hunger, violence. But that’s not what the president will talk about. And why, then, would his people? It's much more attractive to deny it all a while longer. And be as unprepared as you can be.

If you really want to know the whole awful truth instead of buring your head in the sand or blindly following "The One" into oblivion,  click here.

Sadly, I agree with him 100%.

Woodman's Grocery caves to Progressive's pressure and un-founded fear.

I had to amend this post.

To be fair, we have shopped at Woodman's for years because we liked the people, we've met most of the managers, cashiers have always been very polite, articulate and helpful.   We had no complaints.  It was my wife's favorite grocery.   But that does not make what happened last night OK.    It only makes what we have to do, that much harder.    The point is that we have no hidden agenda.  Nor did we have anything against them.  Quite the contrary.

We both lose in this because they chose to restrict our Constitutional Rights to Self Defense.    Somehow believing that in their store,  societies ills don't exist or apply.  They apparently believe no bad people cross their threshold.    Un-armed and defenseless does not sound good to me.  

If we let them slide on this,  it only gets worse.   It has to stop somewhere.    The way I put it is that up until last night Woodman's and I had a win- win relationship.  They have good stuff and I would give them good stuff ($)  in return.    They treated us cordially and we did the same for them.   It was a stunning slap in the face after being such a loyal customer for so long.  We've been shopping at Woodman's since it's beginning.   To be treated that way was, called out in the middle of the store in front of all the checkouts and  then given the word to leave was hugely embarrassing and this after we had shopped and paid for everything.    We patronized Woodman's for a majority of our monthly shopping needs but no more.   The made sure the got their bottom dollar but left us empty hearted.   

When are we citizens,  We The People,  going to stop taking it.   (and you know what I mean.)  Show these people that you are there and that you do count and your money counts.   Stop hiding.   These cretins,  continue to restrict your Constitutional Rights and Progressivism continues to gain ground because good men and women do nothing. 

This is no small thing.   The Progressive/Liberal bias that pervades government is not limited to government but also grows like a virus all around you.   What if 'they' continue  to take the monetary power they have and use it to limit you further.     This is no different than turning your head while someone is being beaten/or raped in a parking lot  or on a busy city street.   You say, your kidding right?  Exaggeration right? 


Oh yeah, this did just happen.  

Rape witnesses are taking heat for not calling 911

 Toledo woman says no one helped as she was raped

What is wrong with these people!?!?!?!?!! 

If we continue to act like this is a reality show on TV,  we will not be around for the end.  

Stand up and be counted.     This is not just a guy thing either.   If women don't stand up and protest this kind of prejudicial attitude and/or Constitutional rights restrictive regulations,  you will have no rights.   

 Enough is enough.   

It is time for Conservative,  Constitution loving,  Free, lovers of Liberty to say in one voice,   NO MORE!  

Don't allow them to trample your rights any longer.  Time to come out and be counted.   

For those who are who don't feel that open carry is their thing, for what ever reason,  that's OK with me.    You don't even have to picket,  just don't spend your money there.    Show that you do matter and that your rights and opinion do count.    Shop at Walmart.  Their national policy is to allow open carry.   

Let Woodman's and any other enemy of your Constitutional rights feel the loss that they deserve and shop elsewhere.  In this difficult time, believe me, it will make a dent.  They will feel you.   If we make them hurt financially, it will change their mind.  


My open carry gun and holster

This is the gun, a hi-quality, incredibly reliable Hi-Point C9 and my Kydex/leather hybrid, thumb break holster. I made this holster because I could not find one that suited me. This is made from the toughest materials I could get my hands on. Nearly 3mm thick Kyedex and 4mm thick leather. Riveted together and the thumb break is fastened by the star which is screwed into the Kydex and snaps behind the gun. This is a tough, strong and safe holster.

My question is this, why would Woodman's restrict the good guys from carrying when the bad guys won't obey your miniscule NO GUNS/WEAPONS ALLOWED sign anyway. The 'Bad Guys' hide their guns. Honest, good citizens in Wisconsin, carry theirs out in the open.

Jan. 25, 2010 WOODMAN'S GROCERY STORE IN ONALASKA WISCONSIN! Customers asked to leave because they were armed and open carrying.

Asked to leave Woodman's while open carrying a Hi-Point C9,  9mm hand gun in a finely crafted and superbly fit and strong Kydex/leather hybrid thumb break holster. Custom fitted and made by me.  

Woodman's Grocery discriminates against gun owners in general and is holding to a Liberal bias against guns and gun owners.   They are anti- 2nd Amendment.

Call to Woodman's Corporate. . . . .Quint Woodman, executive in charge of corporate policy. Around 1:00pm Tuesday January, 26 2010

Quint Woodman:  This is Quint, how can I help you?

David:  My name is David and I'm calling to verify corporate policy.

Quint Woodman:  Ok.

David:  My Question is in regard to the carry of handguns in your store.

Quint Woodman:   ah-huh.

David:  Can you explain to me your corporate policy on that?

Quint Woodman:   Ahh. . . Yeah, we don't allow the carry of any weapons in our stores.

David:   You don't have any signage in your stores?

Quint Woodman:   Yep

David:   You do?

Quint Woodman:   Posted at every entrance.

David:   Posted at every entrance that says; “No hand guns allowed”?

Quint Woodman:    No Weapons, correct? (who is he asking this question to? Is someone coaching him?)

David:   No weapons allowed, I see.

Quint Woodman:   Yep.

David:   Alright, very good, um, I ah, appreciate you taking the time to explain that to me. Ah, I was in one of your stores last night and was escorted out because I open carry in Wisconsin exercising my Second Amendment Rights. I respect your policy and will no longer ah, um, will no longer be shopping at Woodman's but I do appreciate you taking the time to explain that to me and I would like to let you know that I am posting this on several bulletin boards state wide and my blog site and I do appreciate your time and thank you so I'll make sure that anyone who carries a gun openly in Wisconsin knows that Woodman's is against the Second Amendment and has a policy stating that right on the front door. Is that fine with you?

Quint Woodman:   Yeah,

David:   OK.

Quint Woodman:    I . . . I already talked to the president . . . .called me about an hour ago. PO'd at me, talked to him about it, he said he was going to get some people together and protest out in front of the store.

David:   The president of what?

Quint Woodman:   Of Right to Carry.

David:    Oh no, actually, you see, you've got a lot of trouble coming your way then, 'cause, I don't even know who that is.

Quint Woodman:    Oh. . .ah, he must have heard that from somebody else.

David:    So it won't be just him, it will be many, many other groups. You just opened a can of wup ass.

Quint Woodman:    Well. . . I. . . mean. . . .

David:    But thanks a lot for your time. As I said, I will respectfully adhere to your policy and I and anybody else I talk to who open carries, including many women, will no longer be shopping at your store. But I do appreciate your time today and thank you.

Quint Woodman:    But I . . . .But I . . .completely. . .You know. . . . understand what you guys are tryin' to do. I'm a gun owner myself and I. . .ah. . . think right to carry is great but it doesn't have a place in the grocery store.

David:    Yeah, well, I tell you what, I'm not going to go into it right now but just do a Google search on how many assaults with concealed weapons by bad guys happen in grocery stores and. . .and . . .maybe. . .maybe you'll think differently, for example; are you married,

Quint Woodman:    emm-hmm

David:    If your wife. . . .Do you have children?

Quint Woodman:    Yes.

David:    Ok, are they young children

Quint Woodman:    Yes.

David:     Ok your wife and child is in a . . .in a grocery store. Let's say a Woodman's for example that doesn't allow open carry and a bad guy with a gun is in that store, and there's nobody there to stop him. Nobody's there to stop him. The police are generally five minutes away average nation wide, that time frame is becoming longer and longer, and they're not even required to protect you anyway. By law, they don't have to protect you. So when. . . if that were to happen, how would you feel about your policy then?

Quint Woodman:    Well. . .ah. . .um . .how would you feel if somebody grabbed your gun and started shooting.

David:      Well I tell ya, the incident of that happening is infinitesimal compared to bad guys. So that's something you should keep in mind in considering. . . . .if you're scared of somebody doing that, how would you feel if somebody broke into your house and took your guns? If I were you, I'd get rid of all your guns.

Quint Woodman:     Ah. . .ahh. . . . it's all theoretical,

David:     You know, that's the logic though. There's the logic, why do you have guns if you are so afraid of them?

Quint Woodman:    I'm not afraid of them . . .

David:    Then way is this. . .why is this policy at the store. . .

Quint Woodman:     I said that I agree with you, but I. . .you know. . . we just don't. . . people, people. . . . our customers

David:     No, no, no. . .

Quint Woodman:     aren't comfortable . . . with people carrying a gun.

David:     I'm a customer and I spent good money in your store about three weeks ago more money about 4 weeks ago and then again more money seven weeks ago.

David:     Now my point to you is that I was a very good customer and I am no longer a customer at your store and neither will many, many other gun owners. This is not about your customers being unhappy, this is about some liberal who whined and complained to you. That's what this is about. You're afraid of upsetting liberals. You're afraid of taking a stand for the second amendment and we're going to make it clear that that is the case. This has nothing to do with you protecting customers.

Quint Woodman:    I'm not protecting customers (at this point, my tape picked up a female voice in the background appearing to coach Quint) I'm saying that. . . .

David:    Then why don't you allow carry in your store?

Quint Woodman:    There's more customers that are apposed to it than . . .

David:    You're saying there are more liberals.

Quint Woodman:    Than. . .than are for it.

David:    Have you ah. . .have you been listening to the news lately?

Quint Woodman:    Yes.

David:    Have you been checkin' that stuff out?

David:    I don't think there are more customers who are for hiding your guns. I think you're in for a surprise, you'd better get in step with what is going on in the real world, 'cause you're going to be left way behind if you don't.

Quint Woodman:    OK. Thanks for calling. . .

David:    You betcha, you have a (CLICK) great day.

That is the end of the phone call with Woodman's

Sad, twisted deception. . . .from your own government.


The economy has not been saved, only disguised… akin to putting lipstick on ENRON years ago and calling it a great investment.

Banks and other financial institutions have only been able to report revenues because they no longer have to record ‘actual‘ losses, as long as they don’t sell it they can put whatever value on it they want. We have Congress and the FASB for that brilliant move.

To Mr. Dimon… If you are wondering what is happening in the “real world” and if your losses will grow then just take a look at the growing ‘tent cities’ all around the country. Oh, maybe you already know about them because you have your people out their trying to milk a few more bucks from their “tent mortgage“.

Land of the “Mostly” Free

By Joel Bowman
01/24/10 Taipei, Taiwan – “Freedom is the right to tell people what they don’t want to hear.” – Eric Arthur Blair (a.k.a. George Orwell)

That the United States of America was this week demoted from its formerly “Free” categorization by The Heritage Foundation to that of “Mostly Free” should come as no surprise to any semiliterate, moderately contemplative individual. Americans living under the tyranny of a Big Brother-style government hardly needed a Washington-based think tank and a Wall Street Journal to tell them what they don’t want to hear. They can flick through a thousand channels of cable television and find plenty of that. Still, the report does raise some points worth discussing.

“The US government’s interventionist responses to the financial and economic crisis that began in 2008 have significantly undermined economic freedom and long-term prospects for economic growth,” the foundation wrote. “Economic freedom has declined in seven of the 10 categories measured in the Index.”

According to their website, the foundation’s Index of Economic Freedom “measures 183 countries across ten specific freedoms such as trade freedom, business freedom, investment freedom, and property rights.” This year’s publication was the first time in the index’s, albeit somewhat brief, 16-year history that the Land of the Free dropped out of the “Free” category. The US now ranks a still respectable 8th on the list, one spot behind Canada and at the head of a group that includes Bahrain, Georgia and Botswana. Perhaps more alarmingly, the nation experienced the steepest decline in score (since last year’s index) out of any of the world’s largest 20 economies. Poland, Mexico and Turkey enjoyed the biggest advances.

Think tank indexes aside, it would be a great loss to all if The United States of America, a constitutional republic endowed with an abundance of natural resources, unparalleled entrepreneurship and a Declaration of Independence that positively enshrines each and every man’s unalienable rights to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” were to fail despite itself.

Will somebody please explain to me why Sarah Palin hitched her ride to a sinking ship. . . .

I mean,  if you are going to support a Republican,  you needed to support a real Republican.   Nay,  a Conservative.   McCain is a fence sitting,  Rino.  McCain/Feingold ring a bell for anyone.  

This turd revealed his true colors and they are blue.    Drop this drip like a hot rock.   McCain has nothing good for us.   He needs to retire to what ever 72 room bungalow  he has bought and be done with it.  

Sarah, Sarah, Sarah!   You could not have made a worse choice if your campaign was being run by James Carville.  Snap out of it.  Stop listening to all those insipid yes men and women around you and do a little research for your self.  

McCain is wrong for America.  Wrong for the Republican Party and wrong for Conservatives.   He is just plain wrong.

John Lennon

Draw your own conclusions.

Revolution Lyrics
Artist(Band):John Lennon

You say you want a revolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to change the world
But when you talk about destruction
Don't you know that you can count me out? (in)

Don't you know it's gonna be

You say you've got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We are doing what we can
But if you want money for people with minds that hate
All I can tell is, brother, you'll have to wait

Don't you know it's gonna be

You say you'll change the constitution
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the institution
Well, you know
You'd better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of Chairman Mao
You ain't gonna make it with anyone anyhow

Don't you know it's gonna be

A Warning To The Washington DC Establishment

This is bad. . .

This from the blog.

 China crisis threatens global financial markets

 the authorities have unexpectedly tightened bank lending, leading to fears that the local stock and housing asset bubble will now explode.

However, it is really the longs who should watch out. For a correction in Chinese stocks will drag the entire global financial market down, and the extent of the recent rally will come under critical scrutiny.

So selling out of long positions and going into global short positions might also be very wise. Don’t get burnt by the Chinese dragon.

I've mentioned this before.   By itself,  it is bad enough but then add to this,  the extremely volatile nature of  the US economy, housing -OH MY!  Commercial Real Estate - Hold on to your hats!  Jobless at 22-25%  Good Grief!   More still to come. 

This is like waiting for a mouse trap to spring.     Oh Yeah,  if you're in the dollar,  get out.   Same for stocks.  Treasuries etc.    Head as fast as your feet will carry you to the nearest purveyor of gold or silver and load up.  The real deal,  you don't want no damn piece of paper.

Get the stuff in your hands and in your safe.

I'm just sayin'.   Actually, I've been sayin' it for some time now.   I hate always being right.

AP claims thousands protest Joe Arpaio's Immigration tactics. . .

Thousands of immigrant rights advocates marched in front of a county jail in Phoenix.  I suspect this would have been a grand opportunity for Joe and the INS.  

Joe is not fazed and said the protesters should direct their ire at congress and not him, they are, in fact the ones who wrote these laws.

All I can say is hang in there Joe.   After Obummer is impeached, jailed or resigns,  the White House will have a decidedly friendlier occupant.   And You will be able to actually do your job without your hands being tied behind your back.

Fox News calls the Massachusetts special senate election for Scott Brown

Martha Coakley has conceded. Fox News and AP are calling the race for Scott Brown.

If you were waiting for the first move. . . here ya go. . .

With the political landscape unfolding as a monumental disaster of biblical proportions for the Democrat party, these actions look like an exercise of power, a dry run, a test of the waters so to speak. Whats next, suspension of the Bill of Rights? Nullification of the Constitution?

BATF Notice Bans Private Gun Sales In Texas

 The BATFE is now making it's own law.    Or should I say making 'up' it's own law.

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives is actively issuing directions banning private sales of guns without licenses at gun shows in Texas, despite there being no law to justify such demands.

I can't say that I am surprised. . . . .

In deference to any LEOs reading this, I don't think all cops are bad or ignorant or dumb or power mad but I do think there are those who are ill informed and need a good hard poke with a sharp stick to get their attention.

As I read it,  there are no laws that exist or can be made that circumvent the  the 4th Amendment to the Constitution.   I have reproduced this article from her blog and suggest to you that it bears reading.  All links should be functional including the one to donate to her defense fund.

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

This is from Heidi's blog, Big Girl Pants

i'm looking for my invite to the whitehouse now.

the fourth amendment to our constitution - one of the venerable notions known as our 'bill of rights' - reads:
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.
Unintended tyrannyon the morning of 16 november 2009 i got to personally experience a breach of this fundamental right.
i am sharing this story with all of you, because my attorney (bruce m. margolin) believes that we need to make people aware of this case.  that we need to make people aware that some of our police officers - at least here in the mountains of southern california - are stepping on the constitution and doing harm to the people they are sworn to protect.
on that fateful morning, i was on the phone with mr. j (had been for at least 30 minutes) when there was a knock on my front door.  upon answering i discovered a san bernardino county sheriff's deputy standing there.  the following exchange ensued - please note that mr. j heard everything that i have written here and will act as my "ear witness" in court:
haj: yes?
sbsd: we had a call from this residence to 911.  is everything ok? (or words to that effect)
haj: i didn't call 911 and i am the only one home.
sbsd: was there anyone else here with you today?
haj: my son was here earlier but he left nearly an hour ago.
sbsd: why didn't you answer the phone with dispatch called back?
haj: aside from my husband calling, the phone has not rung this morning.
---- at this point the deputy radioed to dispatch to ask if they had called back and the dispatcher responded that she had called AND left a voicemail. it was also at this point that she revealed the supposed call to 911 was a hang-up.  ----
sbsd: do you mind if i come in and look around?
haj: yes, i do mind.  there is no need for you to come in; as i told you i am the only one home and there is no problem.
sbsd: i am coming in.
haj: not without a warrant.
sbsd: my supervisor is on his way.  you will be arrested.  this will not end well for you.
haj: can you tell me what law says my right against an unwarranted search is abdicated because you say that someone called 911 from my residence?
sbsd: i'm not certain there is an actual law, but under certain circumstances we are allowed to enter the premises without a warrant.
haj: i have nothing to hide.  i will be happy to wait with you while you obtain a search warrant and thenWarrant you're welcome to enter the house.
--- conversation continued in this vain for several minutes - me standing in my doorway in my stocking feet with one hand holding the phone up to my ear and the other hand on the open door.  the deputy was all the while standing in front of my door with her boot wedged into the door so that i could not have closed it had i tried.  several minutes into the conversation, her supervisor arrived. ---
sbsd #2: what is your f-ing problem?
haj: i don't have a problem, i merely want an answer to my question before i allow you to enter my house without a search warrant.
sbsd #2: what's your question?
haj: what law says my right guaranteed under the 4th amendment is forfeited the minute you say there was a hang-up call to 911 from my location?
sbsd #2: what?
haj: as i told the other deputy, i will be happy to step outside with you with the premises secured while we wait for a search warrant.  or alternatively, tell me the law that is effective here, i'll look it up and if it checks out i'll gladly let you in without the warrant.
sbsd #2: not going to happen.
at this point i was essentially tackled by the two of them.  i cannot tell you the exact manner in which it happened, but one minute i was standing at the door talking to two police officers and mr. j at the same time and the next minute i was on the floor of my entry way with a very large man sitting on my chest his knees pinning down my arms, screaming at me to put my hands behind my back.  after several instances of me telling him "i can't move, let alone put my hands behind my back" he got off me, rolled me over and put handcuffs on me.
still essentially sitting on me, holding me down, he starts telling me that the police are always justified in entering a premises any time a 911 call is made because someone might be hurt and that the 4th amendment is always suspended in those cases.  meanwhile several other deputies entered my house - and while the phone had been knocked out of my hand, the line was still open and mr. j heard all of this.  the line was finally closed by one of the deputies as they were taking me out my front door.
at no time was i told that i was under arrest or what the charges were.  until i asked the deputy when we got to the jail, my rights were never read to me. 
there is more from the jail, but it's not actually applicable to my criminal case.  although i did find it interesting that i was told by a deputy at the jail "it's time you people learn that you only have the rights Obama 4th we (i took that 'we' to mean 'the police') are willing to grant to you.  all that came to my mind was "i don't think so!"  all-in-all it was the most degrading and humiliating experience of my life thus far.
the same jailhouse deputy accused me of having "no respect for the rule of law or the authority of the police."  i did respond to that one - i told her "i'm 45 years old.  i'm pretty certain that if that were the case you would have seen me in here before now."
mr. margolin was the victorious attorney for timothy leary.  yes, that timothy leary.  and while my politics could not be further from his (although SURELY there will come a day when he realizes the dems are not on his side for his beliefs) he is one of the leading authorities in this country on defending the fourth amendment in criminal cases.  criminal.  me?  it's a frightening fact that right now i am considered a criminal.
i will be formally arraigned on the 27th of this month.  the court date will be set after that.  we do not, yet, have a copy of the police report - the da has promised to hand it over at the arraignment.  we do know that i have been charged with "resisting an executive officer".
i'm fighting this charge.  it's going to be expensive, and i'm not altogether certain where i will get the funds, but i want this arrest off my record. i have never been arrested before (well once i was held for non-payment of a parking ticket from the st. louis airport from my ex-husband, but that was 21 years ago and when the ticket was paid, it went away) and i want this gone, too.  especially since i did nothing more than question how my rights had been abdicated.  according to my attorney, they had not been.
i want my life back, i want my record clean again, and i want people to know how some police treat american citizens.  citizens.  someday, maybe, i’ll tell you how i was treated in jail but right now i’m concentrating on fighting the charges from the arrest.  and if you can help, i could really use it.  please forgive my begging, but if there is any amount you could contribute - even the smallest amount would be greatly appreciated - to my defense fund please do... oh and share this story with your friends.  this is an important issue and my lawyer wants this to get some attention.  we have to fight this - we have to stop this assault on our constitution.  please help if you can!

I agree one hundred percent here. . .

I don't even read pages that require free registration.  Nothing but a scam to get my email and other info.   Why would I Pay a site for the news.   Who gives a shit what the New York Times has to say anyway.

ANN ALTHOUSE: We’re going to have to pay to read the NYT on line. “For me, reading on line is tied to blogging. I’m not going to spend my time reading sites that I can’t blog, and I’m not going to blog and link to sites that you can’t read without paying. Currently, I link to the NYT a lot, perhaps several times a day. I don’t know how much of their traffic is sent their way from blogs, but it’s one more factor that will limit their readership. You’d think what a newspaper would want most is readers, both to influence and to sell to advertisers. I know they need to make money, but I wish advertising was the way. Once they close themselves off — as they did once before with the failure known as TimesSelect — they sacrifice readers and lose appeal for advertisers.”
You have to make money somehow. Is this the way to do it? I’m skeptical, but in a way I’d like to be wrong, as there don’t appear to be any generally applicable schemes for making money from news on the Web.

This Brown thing is actually kinda excitin' to watch. . .

A REPORT FROM THE SCOTT BROWN RALLY AT WORCESTER: “It’s an absolute mob scene. The police have closed off the streets. It’s mind blowing. The hall is already full, and it holds 3,000 people. There may be another 1,000 people outside.”

ANOTHER UPDATE: Meanwhile, reportedly, Coakley can’t fill a hall. “Martha Coakley and Barack Obama held a rally today in Boston. They couldn’t fill the hall. . . . It holds 3,000 and frankly only 2,000 to 2,500 showed up.”

Welcome to the United Soviet Socialist States of America

Boortz on the Democrat Socialist vision:

Can you believe this is happening in our country? The government tells you that you’re going to have to pay a special tax on your health insurance plan…unless, that is, you happen to be a union member – or if you happen to work for city or state government. Then you won’t have to pay the tax.
the country we’re living in bears about as much resemblance to America as the old Soviet Union did.

Which, for Democrat Socialists and their Marxist Messiah, is the whole idea.

While we're at it,  Nelson of back door political payola fame is now requesting that he be able to back out of the deal he made.   Seems folks back home in Nebraska think he ignored their wishes in voting for the health care fiasco.   I'm just so shocked. . . . .

Nebraska Sen. Ben Nelson and his wife were leaving dinner at a new pizza joint near their home in Omaha one night last week when a patron began complaining about Nelson’s decisive vote in favor of the Senate’s health care bill.

Other customers started booing. A woman yelled, “Get him the hell out of here!” And the Nelsons and their dining companions beat a hasty retreat.

 “It was definitely a scene in there,” said Tom Lewis, a 41-year-old dentist and registered Republican who witnessed the incident. A second witness confirmed the incident to POLITICO.

I guess that backfired big time. . . . .

7-State Backlash for Nelson’s Nebraska Deal

By KATHARINE Q. SEELYEPrompted by an angry Senator Lindsey Graham, Republican of South Carolina, the attorneys general of that state and six others are looking at the Nelson deal, which they have dubbed the “Nebraska compromise,” The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

Nelson Requests Removal of Nebraska Aid From Final Bill

Senator Ben Nelson, Democrat of Nebraska, on Friday asked the Senate majority leader, Harry Reid of Nevada, to remove a special provision in the health care legislation that would have the federal government pay for all of Nebraska’s costs of a proposed expansion of Medicaid, the federal-state insurance program for low-income Americans.
The provision, however, sparked a torrent of criticism and was derided by Republicans and others as the “Cornhusker kickback.” Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger of California, referencing Mr. Nelson in his State of the State address, said: “He got the corn, we got the husk.”
