Updates on Hollis Wayne Fincher

It is time to go and check up on him folks, send him some words of encouragement, and do not forget to donate too.


Head Janitor Kestryll

I call a spade a spade, and it was not the first time either, but then again I was the only one who stated that he thinks Mike Hass is an idiot. Moreover, I provided proof (scroll to the bottom and read the last sentence in the sidebar) in my comment and my post from two years ago, whereas we just have heard that what David said was just so terrible from you (your playground your rules). However, we do have Mike Hass' own statements at your playground in post number three (3)- allow me to quote (I highlighted just three examples of what you decry, Head Janitor Kestryll, in Mike Hass' post):
Codrea is one of the most anti-NRA entities one can encounter. He was one of the failed, venom-spouting KABA group who attacked NRA at every turn, even CA NRA volunteers, in their ourageous attempts to attain some kind of relevance among credible gun activists in the Golden State and nationally.

Earlier this century, not long after Bush was first elected and Ashcroft had barely taken office, these nits tried to fundraise with a "national online petition" attacking Ashcroft! See:
(I bet they think this stuff is long gone)
They tried to blowup a non-existant issue and truly pathetic petition "numbers" into sounding significant, pretending that such non-official efforts (not registered with any Secretary of State anywhere) are influential, while collecting personal-contact-information. (It's illegal to keep the personal info one gathers with a real, official, registered petition.)

Codrea doesn't have CLOSE to the kind of talent one needs to effectively interpret and understand gun politics and God knows, he'll never effect them.

Unless it's to DAMAGE gun rights irrepairably - which he and his cohorts almost did - at the Supreme Court. Extremely misguided and confrontational with anyone that voiced support for NRA, KABA was the most vocal public voice supporting the disasterous "Silveira" lawsuit - a real turkey of a CA "AW" suit that had done nothing but lost everytime it came before a judge (the defendant was far from an ideal gun-owner). But these idiots kept appealing it - all the way, against the advice of every esteemed firearm legal authority you can name. Yep, had the SCOTUS actually heard the stupid thing, it would have decimated the Second Amendment. At least that was the view keld by Kates, Halbrook, Michel and other noted 2A attorneys and constitutional experts, most of who published articles that described Silveira accurately and technically as the high threat to the Second Amendment it was.

[CORRECTION: On a bit of research, I believe I remembered this incorrectly and Codrea didn't propose the following idea, but Brian Puckett, another member of the KABA KLAN] once recommended to CA gun-owners that they just ignore CA's assault weapon laws! Yep, just dare the CA DOJ to prosecute. Now, THERE's a real political chess-player, eh? (Remember, these guys critisized NRA every step of the way!) See

If you ask me, Codrea and his ilk should do less talking and more listening. He could learn a lot from the members of this forum about how to be effective. Rule 1: Learn how to play well with others - LIKE THOSE ON YOUR OWN SIDE.

Now, I am not trying to start a flame war, a pissing contest, or any such brouhaha, it is just this Head Janitor Kestryll, if you are going to say that David's supporters (note plural) specifically call someone an idiot, please be specific, as I am the one- and I stand by my opinion.

America Freedom to Fascism Authorized version

I watched this tonight after hearing from a friend, and after doing so, I am posting the text and video embed straight from Google. However, I suggest you hit the title and watch it in a much larger window than the tiny one here.

Please visit http://www.freedomtofascism.com to purchase the DVD.

This is the "Director's Final Cut" authorized version of Aaron Russo's documentary, America: Freedom To Fascism (AFTF). It is being uploaded to Google Video for the first time during the evening of October 19-20th, 2006. Aaron has listened to everyone's feedback - volunteers, students, lovers of freedom & liberty, young and old alike - and, true to his word, he is putting this up "for free" on Google Video knowing that the hour has come for Americans to either be awakened to restore the Republic or be swept aside by the dark global forces of fascism that seeks to enslave mankind.

AFTF's main focus comes in a statement with six very simple words: SHUT DOWN THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM!!

After viewing the movie, please be sure to visit http://www.freedomtofascism.com where you will soon be able to view a much higher quality "pay per view" Internet version of AFTF, buy the DVD and sign up as an affiliate to sell/distribute DVDs to others.

We also urge everyone to be sure to sign up as volunteer, register for email alerts and tell your family, friends and neighbors about this groundbreaking movie.
Go and give Russo the twenty fiat dollars for the DVD or donate that much to Russo's struggle to get this into theaters, what do you have to lose but the chains of slavery...

Who Wants To Live Forever

The following is taken from the middle of the post:
I'm sure King Leonidas & his men didn't have a death wish. They weren't suicidal & if given the choice they'd have opted for living a little while longer. But they didn't see any way to live & still stop the invading Persian army. I suspect they knew they'd die someday & they'd rather it be while defending their homes than watching their grandchildren bow their knees to a foreign master.

"Only the rocks live forever. It matters not how long you live, but how you live."

That's an old Native American saying. (Some folks may remember the first part as the title of the first episode of the 1978 mini-series Centennial). But the sentiment is as ancient as mankind itself. No one wants to die - or at least most people don't want to die - for its own sake. Sure there are folks who are despondent about a lost love or their failing bodies & they see death as the only way to end their suffering, but most folks don't look at death as the most desirable outcome out of all possible options.
It is one of the finest posts I have read- now go read the rest of it.


Oh yes, voting for the US Presidency really works...

Road to White House may cost $1 billion

By Ralph Z. Hallow
December 20, 2006

The chairman of the Federal Election Commission yesterday predicted that 2008 will produce the first $1 billion presidential race and that the $500 million that each party's candidate will need to compete will severely limit the field of contenders.

"The 2008 presidential election will be the longest and most expensive in United States history," FEC Chairman Michael E. Toner told The Washington Times.

"The nominee of each major party is likely to opt out of the public-financing system for the first time ever for the general election," Mr. Toner said.

Officials told The Times that in 2004, both Sen. John Kerry and President Bush considered not accepting public financing for the general election. But they decided to accept the $75 million and the consequent spending cap out of fear of an out-of-control, money-raising race with an uncertain outcome. Both men eschewed federal matching funds for their primary contests.

Mr. Toner said that nominees will seek to raise up to $500 million for their campaigns and that the "entry level" for getting into the presidential nomination campaign as a serious contender will be $100 million by the end of 2007. A candidate who hasn't raised that much by then will not be taken seriously by potential major donors or by the press, he said.

Among the handful of "first-tier" potential nomination candidates in both parties, two are considered safe bets to eschew public financing for both the primaries and general elections.

On the Republican side, Arizona Sen. John McCain, who strategists in both parties consider the best-organized candidate in his party, has the credentials and proven money-raising ability to forgo public money. New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the best-organized Democrat, is the best bet for non-public financing in her party, strategists say.

"Hillary can raise $350 [million] for the primary and another $250 [million] for the general," one official said privately.

Mrs. Clinton leads and Mr. McCain runs second behind former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani in presidential preference polls of primary voters in their respective parties.

Mr. Giuliani also is expected to have no trouble raising money from a variety of major donors both in the Republican Party -- where economic and national-defense conservatives outnumber rich religious conservatives -- and even among Jewish Democrats who admire his stand on Israel.

Last night in New York, the former mayor and federal prosecutor held his first major fundraiser since he formed a presidential exploratory committee last month. Mr. Giuliani was expected to raise $500,000 from that one "preliminary" event, attended mainly by family and friends at the Times Square Marriott hotel.

Mr. Toner said that realistically, the huge amounts of money required for the 2008 campaign would winnow out, earlier than usual, many potential candidates in what was expected to be a very large field in both parties.

The per-person donation limit at the Giuliani fundraiser last night was $2,100 -- the maximum per-person donation allowed for a primary campaign for the 2008 election cycle -- although Mr. Giuliani has not formally declared his candidacy.

Election officials say the reason that candidates will likely eschew public financing of the general election this time is the larger "hard money" legal per-person contribution -- $4,200 for primary and general elections combined -- and the longer election cycle which, with neither an incumbent president nor vice president on the ballot, will be the most wide-open White House contest since 1952.
I would wager that most of the Paranoid readers know full well what a shill game it has become, but many still vote anyway, nevertheless, I will say remember this:
"Sec. 644. (a) Increase in Annual Compensation.--Section 102 of title 3, United States Code, is amended by striking '$200,000' and inserting '$400,000'. (b) Effective Date.--The <> amendment made by this section shall take effect at noon on January 20, 2001."
Are you going to tell me that spending $500U.S. million for a job that pays $1.8U.S. million, plus other financial benefits, over four years is worth it and that you will remember who brung you to the dance? Sure, you will- those that ponied up ½ of a billion Federal Reserve Notes (commonly called [without the word fiat appropriately in front of it] dollars). However, those that convinced the small contributor, you know the one, he sends $5 - $100.00 hard-earned U.S. Fiat Dollars, to elect HIS man- they will dump his ass and tell the lying cheating bastard who "won" the election what they really want afterwards...

CAIR shuts down RightWingHowler

Inside Politics
By Greg Pierce
December 19, 2006

CAIR stifles blogger

The Tampa, Fla., office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Tampa) has claimed credit for shutting down a conservative blogger who cited a fellow blogger's satirical column suggesting "killing all the Arab children is a workable solution to spare our own children."

CAIR persuaded Florida-based Hostgator.com Internet-service provider to shut down RightWingHowler.com, a conservative blog created by Vilmar Tavares, a retired Air Force officer who lives in Spring Hill, Fla.

Mr. Tavares had quoted blogger Frank J. Fleming's Nov. 28 satire column entitled "The Only Way to Ensure that Our Children Don't Have to Fight Terrorism Is to Kill All the Arab Children." That column at www.imao.us ended with Mr. Fleming's admission that he "is trying to write extreme opinions to generate controversy to promote his new book 'The Chronicles of Dubya Volume 1: The Defeat of Saddam.'"

CAIR was not amused.

"We commend Hostgator.com for doing the right thing by refusing to associate with those who spew anti-Muslim bigotry and support calls to violence," said CAIR-Tampa Executive Director Ahmed Bedier. "We believe hate-filled rhetoric is a major contributing factor to bias crimes and prejudice."
So, Ahmed Bedier has his rags in a knot? How about you tell your fellow Mohammedans to quit saying the President of the US and Jews eat babies? Oh, that is right, that is not Muslim satire, it really is the opinion of MANY raghead Mohammadans.

Well, in as plan-spoken American English as I can muster, Fuck You CAIR!

Oh, and someone please pass the baby-sauce...

Received an E-mail in about MapMuse

It came via the freefire@yahoogroups.com subscription and the following is from the message:

About 6 months ago, Mapmuse.com began a project- the interactive mapping of shooting and target ranges across the US. We initially researched and populated these maps ourselves, with the idea in mind that shooting enthusiasts would subsequently add to, and enhance, the information we provided. We mapped each shooting range, and provided space for a written description, photo, and link to a website. Since this project was started, the public has made hundreds of additions and enhancements to these maps. We now have one of the most comprehensive databases of shooting and target ranges in the US. If you were one of our contributors, we would like to thank you for your help!

I am writing today to ask that if you know of any shooting and target ranges that have opened or closed in the last 6 months, that you make those changes to the maps. Also, we encourage you to add any shooting and target ranges that we are still missing. You can make changes through easy to use links on the site- if you have any problems, see http://find.mapmuse.com/re1/mmFAQ.htm#A4

The link to the Shooting and target ranges map is:


If you are not familiar with MapMuse.com, we are a highly trafficked mapping website with an Alexa traffic rating of approximately 17,000 in the world.
MapMuse's goal is to help people find places related to their interests. MapMuse continues to add new topics of interest each week. If you have a topic that you would like to see mapped, you can suggest the interest on the MapMuse site, and there is a good chance it will be addressed.

Lastly, if you have a related blog, newsletter, or website, a link or a mention would be greatly appreciated.


Cindy Jett
Well, thank you Cindy and MapMuse! Now everyone go check it out and if you have a site or blog then link them as this only helps us all.

Sixty-Five Years Ago Today

When I was a boy, my Father told me how the slant-eyed, little yellow devil bastards performed a sneak attack on Pearl Harbor, except Roosevelt knew and let his people die. My Father did what so many other men and boys did then, but it took him nine months to convince the old doctor signing off to allow him to enlist due to a heart murmur. The doctor finally relented and told him that he would not last a year, however the Old-Man went on to spend twenty-five years in- fighting in two wars (along with a few other fights), and traveling the World. He installed in we boys many things, a great sense of pride in our citizenship, an understanding of duty and honor, and at a very early age, that Roosevelt was a lying bastard hell bent on getting the US into war, and he despised him. Not just for lying about the war, but many, many other things.

However, this post is not for those things, it is for remembering 2,403 dead and the 16,354,000 that served during WWII.

Thank you.

I "trust" everyone had a good one, as the Paranoid Family had a wonderful turkey supper and I was able to clean up my system which was in dire need of maintenance. I should shortly return to my abnormal level of posting.


Requested linkage.

After being without a consistently workable E-mail for the past two and half days (ISP and system conversion), I was sorting through the built-up deluge, and came across a request for linkage to Fort Liberty. I reviewed the site and like what I see and have added the site under the Links section.

Paul Davis on Hollis Wayne Fincher

Mr. Davis points out the six most heinous restrictions:
  1. Over 1 million dollars in bond (the going rate for his land).
  2. Forbidding him to speak to any of the MOWCA members.
  3. Not allowing him to have any guns in his home, or the house he would have to stay in.
  4. Not allowing him to live in his own home, since it is on top of a mountain with only one road for access.
  5. Placing him under house arrest, in which he cannot go anywhere unless there is a government approved reason.
  6. Restricting his travel to go only to that government approved destination and immediately returning to the house he would have to reside in. (Please, no stops in between - even for the bathroom.)
Go and read the rest.


Good on Maxwell Hodgkins!

David Hardy has a short and interesting post up about a new suit filed here in Texas:
Plaintiff is an American citizen who lives in Britain. Challenge is to 18 USC 922(a)(9), which states that a person who is a resident of no state can only buy firearms for lawful sporting purposes, which presumably excludes self-defense.
Here is the direct (thank you Mr., Hardy for posting it) link for a PDF copy of the complaint (WARNING 1.3MB PDF).


Belmont to be first U.S. city to ban all smoking

Belmont to be first U.S. city to ban all smoking
By Dana Yates, Daily Journal Staff

Belmont is set to make history by becoming the first city in the nation to ban smoking on its streets and almost everywhere else.

The Belmont City Council voted unanimously last night to pursue a strict law that will prohibit smoking anywhere in the city except for single-family detached residences. Smoking on the street, in a park and even in one's car will become illegal and police would have the option of handing out tickets if they catch someone.

The actual language of the law still needs to be drafted and will likely come back to the council either in December or early next year.

"We have a tremendous opportunity here. We need to pass as stringent a law as we can, I would like to make it illegal," said Councilman Dave Warden. "What if every city did this, image how many lives would be saved? If we can do one little thing here at this level it will matter."

Armed with growing evidence that second-hand smoke causes negative health effects, the council chose to pursue the strictest law possible and deal with any legal challenges later. Last month, the council said it wanted to pursue a law similar to ones passed in Dublin and the Southern California city of Calabasas. It took up the cause after a citizen at a senior living facility requested smoke be declared a public nuisance, allowing him to sue neighbors who smoke.

The council was concerned about people smoking in multi-unit residences.

"I would just like to say 'no smoking' and see what happens and if they do smoke, [someone] has the right to have the police come and give them a ticket," said Councilwoman Coralin Feierbach.

Yes, TODAY, a CITIZEN has the RIGHT to have the POLICE GIVE them a TICKET!

I think it is time for me to break out my Zippo...


Three new posts on Mr. Fincher

Go on over and take a look at the updates and the conditions for bail the judge is setting:
The conditions include giving up any weapons, posting the deed of the man's property to the court, electronic monitoring, no attending militia meetings and moving from his residence to his daughter's home in Elkins until the trial is over.
Mr. Fincher and his lawyer are weighing the conditions:
"He said, 'Lord, if I sneeze wrong, they'll take my land,' Dunagin said."

Coventry, England 1940 (One day late)

I missed posting this yesterday, so, as a reminder, and being one day late, what Churchill allowed the citizens he was charged with protecting, sixty-six years ago to suffer:

"On 14 November 1940, 500 German bombers dropped 500 tons of explosives and nearly 900 incendiary bombs on Coventry in just ten hours."

"Concealed Weapon Bans And Necessity For Self Defense"


I've talked about the necessity defense as a way around laws that prohibit carrying weapons for reasonable self-defense. Necessity is a rarely used legal defense employed when people accused of crimes claim to have been forced to break a law for simple survival.

Examples of this would be a person who is in danger of starving, dehydration or threatened by weather conditions breaking into a building to get whatever is needed for survival.

The same principal would apply someone who is threatened by crime and poor or slow police response to calls for help where he must live or work.

Recently that was found to be the case in a Maryland prison where a judge allowed the defense where a convict armed himself with a prison made knife and killed another inmate. Self-defense is the law of the land even in prisons. The Circuit Court Judge, Pamela North instructed a jury that a person may arm himself "in reasonable anticipation of an attack." Yes, even a prison convict has a right to self-defense and the necessity defense.
The link was sent to me from a very good friend, and thought it definitely worth posting a link to.


Hollis "Wayne" Fincher Grabbed by F-Troop

First thing this afternoon, while catching up with some news and blogs, I headed over to David Codrea's The War on Guns and found this post. After downloading the linked PDF, I started to read it and just thought everyone needed reminding of this (on page 5):
"A machine gun in the hands of a law abiding citizen used for the lawful defense of person, family, or community, is one thing, that same gun in the hands of someone committing a criminal act, or with the OBVIOUS intent to commit a criminal act, is an entirely different matter. It is simply NOT PERMISSABLE, under our State and Federal Constitutions, to deprive a law abiding citizen of a constitutional right under the false -assumption that doing so will have ANY effect in stopping a criminal intent on committing a crime. In fact, historically, it is GOVERNMENTS that have shown, time and time again, that THEY are the ones who are most dangerous with Arms In their hands. Wars, oppressions, dictatorships, warlords, and rule by criminal gangs are more often than not the legacy and result of government disarming the populace and retaining all "control" of Arms for themselves. "Control" is what governments do worst, especially when it comes to Arms, and that is precisely WHY we have a Second Amendment in the U.S. Constitution as well as similar "Declaration of Rights" articles in the various State Constitutions."
I am sure much of their funds will be used for Mr. Fincher's defense, and I do not wish to add to their bill, so I have placed the PDF here (WARNING 1.9MB) and you should download it, read it, and print it so that you have a handy copy available. I will be posting updates as I am able and also want to point out that this did not take very long after the elections to start ramping up, now did it?

Words to live by, or How the NRA works for gun control.

In my recent post, Stalwarts versus NRA, there were several comments made and one in particular by Hammer (see here).

However, to make things easier to follow, here is what Hammer said:
I was reading the December 1945 issue of American Rifleman today.

There was letter expressing concern about some of the M1 carbines having 17.75 inch barrels and therefore being under the NFA 34

The NRA responded with:

What does it matter? The Carbine has no sporting purpose anyway..

This has been one of the main problems with the NRA leadership in my opinion. Giving ground throughout the years because the laws didn't affect affect hunters or target shooters
Hammer | Homepage | 11.10.06 - 7:24 am | #
And I told him:
You scan it and tell me where to download it (or E-mail it to me), and I will give it a permanent spot on the blog and site.
So, first thing this morning, Hammer sent them to me. Now, his scanner is down so he took photos of them (1, 2, 3) and the original images will not fit so I sharpened them and resized them and here, in order below, are the new images and the full size ones can be viewed by clicking on the title beneath the images below.

American Rifleman December 1945

American Rifleman December 1945 Page 32

American Rifleman December 1945 Page 32 Inset

I want to thank Hammer for sending them to me and I want the rest of you to understand that, yes, I am slamming the NRA, but strictly for the attitude I mentioned in the post referenced above as I do stand by my statement and opinion that NRA does deserve to be honored for many things- I just prefer to understand that the NRA is happy with helping to foist un-Constitutional laws downs it 3+ million members throats and has since the beginning...

What do you know!

I am under cyveillance!

A very interesting article can be found here, and I have but this to say- if you have any questions asswipes, then send them to the E-mail.


And for another post today.

Just a bit of history:
1519 - Cortez arrived in Mexico City

1805 - The "Corps of Discovery" reached the Pacific Ocean. The expedition was lead by William Clark and Meriwether Lewis. The journey had begun on May 14, 1804, with the goal of exploring the Louisiana Purchase territory.

1847 - Bram Stoker was born.

1923 - Adolf Hitler made his first attempt at seizing power in Germany with a failed coup in Munich that came to be known as the Beer-Hall Putsch".

1942 - During World War II, Operation Torch began as U.S. and British forces landed in French North Africa.

1986 - Vyacheslav M. Molotov died at age 96. During World War II, Molotov ordered the mass production of bottles filled with flammable liquid later called the "Molotov cocktail."

2000 - Waco special counsel John C. Danforth released his final report that absolved the government of wrongdoing in the 1993 seige of the Branch Davidian compound in Texas.

Stalwarts versus NRA

I shared the comments below with David Codrea in an E-mail exchange yesterday after reading this post to his blog. He suggested that I post it, and after reflection and a good nights sleep, I have decided to do so:
I am a Life Member of the NRA, but do not actively support them any longer (have not for five years) and I know you really do not know me from Adam, but what I am about to relate is the flat out truth as I was told.

A few years ago, I attended the Gun Rights Forum Policy conference in Houston, Texas. The forum was held at the Hilton at the airport which was convenient for many people (never mind that the hotel was ALMOST properly posted AGAINST Texas Concealed Handgun Licensees- not ALL entrances were as IS required by Texas law), and the Honorable Dr. Ron Paul was a speaker at the event. I did have the privilege of hearing him speak and shaking his hand afterwards, and I also know for a fact that the good Dr. was spoken of highly by many in attendance. I was also told, by a man whose credentials are above reproach in my eyes, who related the conversation he had with one of the high muckety-mucks of the NRA at the time (my source was a BOD member then) who said he was told that the good Dr. was considered a joke on the Hill and lacking in respect by other members.

I was reminded of this conversation when I spoke to this man again this morning who further elaborated that the lack of support and outright working towards getting rid of the good Dr. is the same reason that Tanya Metaksa was forced out. She was too staunch a supporter, just as Dr. Ron Paul is, and the NRA "leadership" wants him gone.
The above is one of the reasons I do not actively support the NRA any longer, others are:

1. Refusal to work towards overturning the 1934 NFA.
2. Refusal to work towards overturning the 1968 CGA.
CURRENT AS OF 08/24/11 1 & 2.
3. Lack of real effort to overturn The Hughes Amendment.

These refusals alone are onerous enough, but together, represent an attitude that was prevalent for so long in the NRA, it took the 1977 Revolt to change things, but unfortunately, it has since been dismantled and the elite returned to control (the best example of which is Charlton Heston's unprecedented four years as President of the NRA).

Nevertheless, the NRA does some very good things and for this it does need to be honored, but the NRA's attitude in standing firm for what it so long touted itself to be, is another, and why I do not actively support them any longer.

Oh, and as for the good Doctor? Go here and see...


Who won on election day?

Obsession the Movie

CSMK sent me the link to the video, and it is a twelve minute shortened version of Obsession the Movie, but unfortunately, the link does not work and the site appears down (I suspect due to traffic). So I tried the Google cache, and it works. However, Google's cache can be fickle and things it has cached can be lost rather quickly, so it has been converted to an AVI and is available here for download (WARNING 33.32MB in size). I do suggest that you try the link in the title to begin with, as I am sure the folks who produced it want the traffic (and deserve it), as well as for you to buy their video but I cannot find any links for purchasing as of yet.

Now, go view the movie.

A response to Vanity Fair.

An NRO Symposium
Editor's Note: On Friday, Vanity Fair issued a press release highlighting excerpts of a piece in their January issue on "neoconservative" supporters of the war in Iraq who today, unsurprisingly, have some negative things to say about how the war is going and how the Bush administration has been handling it.

In the wake of the press release - which has gotten considerable play on the Internet - some of those "neoconservatives" highlighted in the article have responded to the excerpts and its misrepresentations, in some cases, of what they said. We collect some of those reactions - including from David Frum, Michael Ledeen, Michael Rubin, and Richard Perle - below.
What! We are shocked! Shocked that our words could be misconstrued simply by the timing of the release of our comments!
Richard Perle
Vanity Fair has rushed to publish a few sound bites from a lengthy discussion with David Rose. Concerned that anything I might say could be used to influence the public debate on Iraq just prior to Tuesday's election, I had been promised that my remarks would not be published before the election.
Hmm, all this wailing about misconstrued words this past week, first Lurch and now these fleeing rats- it does make me wonder if Perle cried when he wrote his response...

Minn. Candidate Denies 'Whore' Comment

Afraid that he might have ruffled some pantywaist's feathers:
Nov 4, 12:12 AM (ET)


ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The Democratic gubernatorial candidate faced a potential setback for a second day Friday, denying a newspaper report that said he called a male reporter "a Republican whore."

Hatch at first denied using the word. In a debate Friday night, he said he might have used that language but didn't believe that he did.

Forum Communications Co., which owns several Minnesota newspapers, reported that Hatch lashed out at a reporter questioning him Thursday about a gaffe by his running mate, Judi Dutcher.

Dutcher had earlier gotten stumped by a question about the ethanol fuel blend E-85; Minnesota is a major ethanol producer.

The newspaper chain said Thursday that reporter Scott Wente asked Hatch via telephone about Dutcher's knowledge of ethanol and why she wasn't available to discuss the issue. The account said Hatch abruptly ended the interview with: "You're nothinag more than a Republican whore. Goodbye," and then hung up.
However, this is the most telling:
Hatch said during the debate that he regrets how he handled the flap but doesn't think his temper would undermine his ability to lead.
You should have stuck by your guns, wussy boy, that is if you own any to begin with, but I figure you are just another ass-wipe whose legs do not join at the top...


Neo Culpa

As Iraq slips further into chaos, the war's neoconservative boosters have turned sharply on the Bush administration, charging that their grand designs have been undermined by White House incompetence. In a series of exclusive interviews, Richard Perle, Kenneth Adelman, David Frum, and others play the blame game with shocking frankness. Target No. 1: the president himself.

David Rose
VF.COM November 3, 2006

I remember sitting with Richard Perle in his suite at London's Grosvenor House hotel and receiving a private lecture on the importance of securing victory in Iraq. "Iraq is a very good candidate for democratic reform," he said. "It won't be Westminster overnight, but the great democracies of the world didn't achieve the full, rich structure of democratic governance overnight. The Iraqis have a decent chance of succeeding." Perle seemed to exude the scent of liberation, as well as a whiff of gunpowder. It was February 2003, and Operation Iraqi Freedom, the culmination of his long campaign on behalf of regime change in Iraq, was less than a month away.

Three years later, Perle and I meet again at his home outside Washington, D.C. It is October, the worst month for U.S. casualties in Iraq in almost two years, and Republicans are bracing for losses in the upcoming midterm elections. As he looks into my eyes, speaking slowly and with obvious deliberation, Perle is unrecognizable as the confident hawk who, as chairman of the Pentagon's Defense Policy Board Advisory Committee, had invited the exiled Iraqi dissident Ahmad Chalabi to its first meeting after 9/11. "The levels of brutality that we've seen are truly horrifying, and I have to say, I underestimated the depravity," Perle says now, adding that total defeat?an American withdrawal that leaves Iraq as an anarchic "failed state"- is not yet inevitable but is becoming more likely. "And then," says Perle, "you'll get all the mayhem that the world is capable of creating."

Nothing but rats fleeing the sinking ship...

The Dark Ages -- Live From the Middle East!
By Victor Davis Hanson

The most frightening aspect of the present war is how easily our pre-modern enemies from the Middle East have brought a stunned postmodern world back into the Dark Ages.

Students of history are sickened when they read of the long-ago, gruesome practice of beheading. How brutal were those societies that chopped off the heads of Cicero, Sir Thomas More and Marie Antoinette. And how lucky we thought we were to have evolved from such elemental barbarity.
No Mr. Hanson, not all students of history are sickened by the act of beheading, many of us know full well just how powerful a simple act can frighten little children, women, and the so-called civilized. We know full well that the way to stop such acts is by making them un-economical to those who would try to use such an act to gain power- however, today's civilized "Man" shudders at the knowledge of what must be done, but, I for one do not.


PS - Nor Sir, do I need to don period costume to know the flavor of the atrocities committed by the Union in the war for Southron Independence.

Lead souvenir

Inside the Beltway

Lead souvenir

The National Border Patrol Council Local 2544 in Tucson, Ariz., which represents all the nonsupervisory U.S. Border Patrol agents in the illegal-alien-saturated region - the largest in the country - is not pleased with the recent conviction in Texas of fellow agents Ignacio Ramos and Juan Compean, one of whom shot a fleeing drug-smuggling suspect in the buttocks.

Just posted on the council?s Web site: "When smugglers try to run you over with a vehicle you're supposed to: A. Shoot at them; B. Chase them; C. Wave at them and say 'Bienvenidos a Los Estado Unidos'; D. Throw a pamphlet at them on how to apply for Amnesty; E. Offer them food, water, medical care, and counseling at taxpayer expense; F. Beg them not to report you to the [Office of Inspector General] and/or the U.S. attorney's office for using an expletive when you dive for cover; or G. Let them go."

"We realize you probably thought that this was a trick question, but of course the correct answers are C, D, E, F and G (failure to complete all 5 procedures could subject you to severe disciplinary action)."

In short, the agents stopped a van loaded with 743 pounds of marijuana that suspect Osvaldo Aldrete-Davila was driving. A scuffle ensued, during which Ramos says he spotted a gun on the suspect. Shots rang out. However, Mr. Aldrete-Davila escaped across the Mexican border - albeit, the agents learned later, taking with him a lead souvenir from his short visit.

The slug, it turns out, was compliments of Ramos, a 2005 nominee for Border Patrol Agent of the Year. He has now been sentenced by a U.S. District Court judge in El Paso to 11 years and one day in prison, while Compean was handed 12 years. Among other charges, the federal agents did not report the shooting when filing their incident reports.
More to follow.

What you find in the log files.

Thanks to a websearch done from Freehold Regional Schools, of Englishtown, New Jersey, I find out that:

Capt. John Parker of the Lexington Militia did not say: "If they want a war, let it begin here." Alerted by Paul Revere, Parker and 78 militiamen mustered on the Lexington, Mass., town green on April 19, 1775. They wanted to send a warning to the 700 British soldiers marching on Concord to seize the weapons and gunpowder there. But Parker had no desire to start a war. The words were put into his mouth 100 years later. He positioned his men as far away from the British line of march as possible. As the British approached, Parker ordered his men to disperse. The British opened fire on them without provocation, starting the Revolution.

Now Freehold Regional Schools, let me point you to the Constitution, and a fine source on the 2nd Amendment...

Captain John Parker may not have said it, but I will be proud to.

WASHINGTON ? A dozen members of the House of Representatives have written to President Bush demanding an investigation of the case against two Border Patrol agents sentenced to 11 and 12 years in prison for the pursuit and shooting of a drug smuggler and calling for a presidential pardon of the pair.

U.S. District Court Judge Kathleen Cardone in El Paso, Texas, sentenced Jose Alonso Compean to 12 years in prison and Ignacio Ramos to 11 years and one day despite a plea by their attorney for a new trial after three jurors said they were coerced into voting guilty in the case.

Oct. 26, 1942: The last man did not fail

THE LIBERTARIAN, By Vin Suprynowicz
Oct. 26, 1942: The last man did not fail

Oct. 26 falls on a Thursday this year.

Ask the significance of the date, and you're likely to draw some puzzled looks -- five more days to stock up for Halloween?

It's a measure of men like Col. Mitchell Paige that they wouldn't have had it any other way. What he did 58 years ago, he did precisely so his grandchildren could live in a land of peace and plenty.

Whether we've properly safeguarded the freedoms he and his kind fought to leave us as their legacy, may be a discussion better left for another day. Today we struggle to envision -- or, for a few of us, to remember -- how the world must have looked on Oct. 26, 1942. A few thousand lonely American Marines had been put ashore on Guadalcanal, a god-forsaken jungle island which just happened to lie like a speed bump at the end of the long blue-water slot between New Guinea and the Bismarck Archipelago -- the very route the Japanese Navy would have to take to reach Australia.

On Guadalcanal the Marines built an air field. And Japanese commander Isoroku Yamamoto immediately grasped what that meant. No effort would be spared to dislodge these upstart Yanks from a position that could endanger his ships during any future operations to the south. Before long, relentless Japanese counterattacks had driven the U.S. Navy from inshore waters. The Marines were on their own.

World War Two is generally calculated from Hitler's invasion of Poland in 1939. But that's a eurocentric view. The Japanese had been limbering up in Korea and Manchuria as early as 1931, and in China by 1934. By late 1942 they'd devastated every major Pacific military force or stronghold of the great pre-war powers: Britain, Holland, France, and the United States. The bulk of America's proud Pacific fleet lay beached or rusting on the floor of Pearl Harbor.

As Mitchell Paige -- then a platoon sergeant -- and his men set about establishing their last defensive line on a ridge southwest of the tiny American bridgehead at Henderson Field on Guadalcanal on Oct. 25, it's unlikely anyone thought they were about to provide a definitive answer to that most desperate of questions: How many able-bodied U.S. Marines does it take to hold a hill against 2,000 desperate and motivated attackers?

The Japanese Army had not failed in an attempt to seize any major objective since the Russo-Japanese War of 1895. But in preceding days, Marine commander Vandegrift had defied War College doctrine, "dangling" his men in exposed positions to draw Japanese attacks, then springing his traps "with the steel vise of firepower and artillery," in the words of Naval historian David Lippman.

The Japanese regiments had been chewed up, good. Still, American commanders had so little to work with that Paige's men had only four 30-caliber Browning machine guns on the one ridge through which the Japanese opted to launch their final assault against Henderson Field, that fateful night of Oct. 25.

By the time the night was over, "The 29th (Japanese) Infantry Regiment has lost 553 killed or missing and 479 wounded among its 2,554 men," historian Lippman reports. "The 16th (Japanese) Regiment's losses are uncounted, but the 164th's burial parties handle 975 Japanese bodies. ... The American estimate of 2,200 Japanese dead is probably too low."

Among the 90 American dead and seriously wounded that night were all the men in Mitchell Paige's platoon. Every one. As the night wore on, Paige moved up and down his line, pulling his dead and wounded comrades back into their foxholes and firing a few bursts from each of the four Brownings in turn, convincing the Japanese forces down the hill that the positions were still manned.

The citation for Paige's Congressional Medal of Honor adds: "When the enemy broke through the line directly in front of his position, P/Sgt. Paige, commanding a machine gun section with fearless determination, continued to direct the fire of his gunners until all his men were either killed or wounded. Alone, against the deadly hail of Japanese shells, he fought with his gun and when it was destroyed, took over another, moving from gun to gun, never ceasing his withering fire."

In the end, Sgt. Paige picked up the last of the 40-pound, belt-fed Brownings -- the same design which John Moses Browning famously fired for a continuous 25 minutes until it ran out of ammunition in its first U.S. Army trial -- and did something for which the weapon was never designed. Sgt. Paige walked down the hill toward the place where he could hear the last Japanese survivors rallying to move around his flank, the gun cradled under his arm, firing as he went.

The weapon did not fail.

Coming up at dawn, battalion executive officer Major Odell M. Conoley first discovered the answer to our question: How many able-bodied U.S. Marines does it take to hold a hill against two regiments of motivated, combat-hardened infantrymen who have never known defeat?

On a hill where the bodies were piled like cordwood, Mitchell Paige alone sat upright behind his 30-caliber Browning, waiting to see what the dawn would bring.

One hill: one Marine.

But that was the second problem. Part of the American line (start ital)had(end ital) fallen to the last Japanese attack. "In the early morning light, the enemy could be seen a few yards off, and vapor from the barrels of their machine guns was clearly visible," reports historian Lippman. "It was decided to try to rush the position."

For the task, Major Conoley gathered together "three enlisted communication personnel, several riflemen, a few company runners who were at the point, together with a cook and a few messmen who had brought food to the position the evening before."

Joined by Paige, this ad hoc force of 17 Marines counterattacked at 5:40 a.m., discovering that "the extremely short range allowed the optimum use of grenades." In the end, "The element of surprise permitted the small force to clear the crest."

And that's where the unstoppable wave of Japanese conquest finally crested, broke, and began to recede. On an unnamed jungle ridge on an insignificant island no one had ever heard of, called Guadalcanal. Because of a handful of U.S. Marines, one of whom, now 82, lives out a quiet retirement with his wife Marilyn in La Quinta, Calif.

On Oct. 26, 1942.

When the Hasbro Toy Co. called up some years back, asking permission to put the retired colonel's face on some kid's doll, Mitchell Paige thought they must be joking.

But they weren't. That's his mug, on the little Marine they call "GI Joe."

GOP Calls for Withdrawal of Candidate

Oct 19 9:54 PM US/Eastern
Associated Press Writer

Orange County Republican leaders on Thursday called for the withdrawal of a GOP congressional candidate they believe sent a letter threatening Hispanic immigrant voters with arrest.

Tan D. Nguyen denied knowing anything about the letter in an interview Thursday with The Associated Press but said he fired a campaign staffer who may have been responsible for it. Nguyen's attorney said his client had no intention of quitting.

County Republican Chairman Scott Baugh said that after speaking with state investigators and the company that distributed the mailer, he believes Nguyen had direct knowledge of the "obnoxious and reprehensible" letter. He told the AP that the party's executive committee voted unanimously to urge Nguyen to drop out of the race against Democratic U.S. Rep. Loretta Sanchez.

"I learned information that allows me to draw the conclusion that not only was Mr. Nguyen's campaign involved in this, but that Mr. Nguyen was personally involved in expediting the mailer," Baugh said in a telephone interview.

State and federal officials were investigating the letter, which was written in Spanish and mailed to an estimated 14,000 Democratic voters in central Orange County. It warns, "You are advised that if your residence in this country is illegal or you are an immigrant, voting in a federal election is a crime that could result in jail time."

Immigrants who are adult naturalized citizens are eligible to vote.

Nguyen, a Vietnamese immigrant whose opposition to illegal immigration has figured heavily in his underdog campaign, was not immediately available to react to the committee's vote. His attorney, David Wiechert, said Thursday night that his client does not plan to quit.

So, if I understand this correctly, the letter states:

"You are advised that if your residence in this country is illegal or you are an immigrant, voting in a federal election is a crime that could result in jail time."
How is the statement not factual? If a man is a naturalized citizen, he knows full well he CAN vote, but if that man is in the united States on a visa, he is an immigrant, or if he is an illegal he has then already committed a federal crime and (hence the word illegal) he cannot vote, so I must ask once again, how is the statement not factual, and further, how is it intimidation? Mexifornia has a large population from Mexico and many of it's so called citizens, whose allegiance is due to California and the united States, is obviously lacking, but then again, it is just one more nail in the lid...

Permission to travel

"The USA Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has proposed that airlines, cruise lines, and operators of all other ships and planes -- including charter flights, air taxis, fishing vessels, etc. -- be required to get individual permission ("clearance") from the DHS for each passenger on all flights or ocean voyages to, from, or via the USA. Unless the answer is "Yes" -- if the answer is "no" or "maybe", or if the DHS doesn't answer at all -- the airline wouldn't be allowed to give you a boarding pass, or let you or your luggage on the plane."

Of course, the night before, Dad took Mom out for groceries.

And what would the party be without the main course?

Bush says he can edit security reports

By LESLIE MILLER, Associated Press Writer
Thu Oct 5, 4:06 PM ET


President Bush, again defying Congress, says he has the power to edit the
Homeland Security Department's reports about whether it obeys privacy rules while handling background checks, ID cards and watchlists.

In the law Bush signed Wednesday, Congress stated no one but the privacy officer could alter, delay or prohibit the mandatory annual report on Homeland Security department activities that affect privacy, including complaints.

But Bush, in a signing statement attached to the agency's 2007 spending bill, said he will interpret that section "in a manner consistent with the President's constitutional authority to supervise the unitary executive branch."

White House spokeswoman Dana Perino said it's appropriate for the administration to know what reports go to Congress and to review them beforehand.

"There can be a discussion on whether to accept a change or a nuance," she said. "It could be any number of things."

The American Bar Association and members of Congress have said Bush uses signing statements excessively as a way to expand his power.

The Senate held hearings on the issue in June. At the time, 110 statements challenged about 750 statutes passed by Congress, according to numbers combined from the White House and the Senate committee. They include documents revising or disregarding parts of legislation to ban torture of detainees and to renew the Patriot Act.

Privacy advocate Marc Rotenberg said Bush is trying to subvert lawmakers' ability to accurately monitor activities of the executive branch of government.

"The Homeland Security Department has been setting up watch lists to determine who gets on planes, who gets government jobs, who gets employed," said Rotenberg, executive director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center.
So many of you can continue to deny it, but there is not one thin dime's worth of difference between the Repuglicraps and the Democraps- so I say elect Hillary, this way, the war will start sooner...

Spokane sheriff acknowledges porn search was at wrong house

Thanks to a regular reader for pointing me to this:

The Associated Press

SPOKANE - For a 67-year-old homeowner and his wife, wrongly subjected to a shattering pornography search, saying, "Oops, wrong number" is not enough.

Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie D. Knezovich apologized Tuesday for the blunder, which he said resulted when Detective Timothy D. Hines tried to nail whoever was responsible for obscene calls to at least 20 or women enrolled at Whitworth College.

Hines wrote down the wrong figures for a telephone number associated with the calls, so he obtained a search warrant for a house in Spokane, miles from the correct location in suburban Spokane Valley, Knezovich said.

Through a spokesman in the sheriff's office Hines declined an interview request from the newspaper.

The irate homeowner told by The Spokesman-Review, which did not identify him at his request, that deputies dumped out drawers, went through his wallet and checkbook, seized computers, CDs, floppy disks, VHS tapes and other material and refused to clean up the mess in the raid Sept. 27.

Half a dozen sheriff's vehicles converged on the house, and after taking photographs outside Hines told officers within hearing of the neighbors, "Now let's go inside and get some porn," the owner said.
As if this was not insulting and degrading enough, the following certainly is:
Knezovich said he plans to adopted a more structured system for checking facts in search warrants, adding that Hines probably would not be disciplined.

"I could see it if it was a blatant lack of diligence," the sheriff said, "but sometimes things like that happen. A number can get transposed."
And Sheriff Knezovich, just how many other cases that Detecive Hines was involved with have simple mistakes too? You come out and apologize for the mistake because you are the sheriff, but has he done so PUBLICLY and if so, then why decline an interview? Is it because he did this:
Perhaps worse, he said, Hines played recordings of the obscene calls and his wife had to listen to "this filthy stuff." According to court documents, the obscene caller made lewd suggestions while describing child pornography he said he was watching.

The West Point Road resident said Hines argued with his wife when she told him the voice on the recording wasn't that of the man to whom she had been married for 37 years.

When he put his arm around his wife as she cried, the man said, Hines challenged him: "What are you doing?"

The man said Hines told him he could keep the story out of the newspaper if the man would confess. Three days later, the homeowner said, his wife called him at a Promise Keepers meeting to tell him the newspaper had published a story about the search.
Yes, certainly, another simple mistake by a cop, who threatens innocent people with things that turn anyone's stomach, once again, and of course, we can't sanction him for that let alone a wrong number, now can we?



Khameini: Don't masturbate during Ramadan

Iran's supreme leader answers questions on masturbation and other topics on his website Yaakov Lappin Published: 10.04.06, 19:55

Deliberate masturbation during the month of Ramadan renders a fast invalid, Iranian Supreme Leader Sayyid Ali Khameini has ruled.

Khameini, who is Iran's most powerful political and religious figure, was asked on his website: "If somebody masturbates during the month of Ramadan but without any discharge, is his fasting invalidated?"

"If he do not intend masturbation and discharging semen and nothing is discharged, his fasting is correct even though he has done a h.ar?m (forbidden) act. But, if he intends masturbation or he knows that he usually discharges semen by this process and semen really comes out, it is a h.ar?m intentional breaking fasting," the Iranian leader said, posting the reply on his website.
If he do not intend? What is this, a poor translation or a lingustic cousin to Ebonics? Either way, just remember to remind all of our Muslim friends, NO STROKING YOUR MONKEYS! during Ramadan! So says one of your direct lines to allah!

Officials: Inmate got 'Katie's Revenge' tattoo by force
POSTED: 6:02 p.m. EDT, September 29, 2006

EVANSVILLE, Indiana (AP) -- An inmate serving a life sentence for molesting and murdering a 10-year-old girl named Katie was apparently forcibly tattooed across the forehead by a fellow prisoner with the words "KATIE'S REVENGE," authorities say.

Anthony Ray Stockelman, 39, was removed from the general prison population for his own safety last weekend after authorities discovered the tattoo, officials said.
A picture is worth a thousand words...

DESTROY ALL MONSTERS (movies that is)!

The Biology of B-Movie Monsters

BY | Michael C. LaBarbera

SESSION 1: Biology and Geometry Collide!

Size has been one of the most popular themes in monster movies, especially those from my favorite era, the 1950s. The premise is invariably to take something out of its usual context--make people small or something else (gorillas, grasshoppers, amoebae, etc.) large--and then play with the consequences. However, Hollywood's approach to the concept has been, from a biologist's perspective, hopelessly naïve. Absolute size cannot be treated in isolation; size per se affects almost every aspect of an organism's biology. Indeed, the effects of size on biology are sufficiently pervasive and the study of these effects sufficiently rich in biological insight that the field has earned a name of its own: "scaling."

In the cube on the left, length = 1 and volume = 1 (L x L x L). The cube in the middle, where L=2, has a volume of 8. And in the cube on the right, L=3 and V=27.

The conceptual foundations of scaling relationships lie in geometry. Take any object--a sphere, a cube, a humanoid shape. Such an object will have a number of geometric properties of which length, area, and volume are of the most immediate relevance. All areas (surface area, cross-sectional area, etc.) will be proportional to some measure of length squared (i.e., length times length); volumes will be proportional to length cubed (length times length times length). Equivalently, lengths are proportional to the square root of an area or the cube root of a volume.
I do not think that this is his real goal, and most will appreciate his usage of great B-Movies for examples, but for some, the results will be as my title states- nevertheless, it is an enjoyable read about science.

Now, if we could just stop the Monsters of the "The Swamp", and I mean all of them...

Come And Take It!

From October 2, 2004:
Today is a great day in Texas History. It's the day the first shots in the successful Texas revolution were fired. In a surprise attack at dawn October 2nd, 1835 outside Gonzales under the "Come and Take It" flag a band of noble Texicans took the Mexican force which had been sent to seize their cannons.

"When a government has ceased to protect the lives, liberty and property of the people, from whom its legitimate powers are derived, and for the advancement of whose happiness it was instituted, and so far from being a guarantee for the enjoyment of those inestimable and inalienable rights, becomes an instrument in the hands of evil rulers for their oppression."

I must point out those reasons sound very much like things happening today...

Secretary Michael Wynne- you go first.

Air Force chief: Test weapons on testy U.S. mobs
POSTED: 7:56 p.m. EDT, September 12, 2006

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Nonlethal weapons such as high-power microwave devices should be used on American citizens in crowd-control situations before being used on the battlefield, the Air Force secretary said Tuesday.

The object is basically public relations. Domestic use would make it easier to avoid questions from others about possible safety considerations, said Secretary Michael Wynne.

"If we're not willing to use it here against our fellow citizens, then we should not be willing to use it in a wartime situation," said Wynne. "(Because) if I hit somebody with a nonlethal weapon and they claim that it injured them in a way that was not intended, I think that I would be vilified in the world press."

So Asshat Wynne, you are more concerned about what the World thinks of you than those that not only pay your salary, but are your fellow citizens? So it is only proper and just that we think you should be the first, and probably the only one who is shot with this thing, and then instead of turning the damn thing off, they should just leave it running...

Americans do not want them "rehabilitated."

Inside the Beltway

By John McCaslin
September 7, 2006

Dusty trek

Who would have thought the day would come when a leading U.S. senator, while seeking advice on combating terrorism, would travel deep into Libya's desert to huddle with Libyan strongman Moammar Gadhafi in his tent?

By golly, Sen. Arlen Specter, Pennsylvania Republican, has just returned to say he's witnessed a remarkable transformation of Libya and its leader, "where they have moved from being the world's leading terrorist state in very heavy competition."

He says he embarked on a several-hour plane flight from Tripoli into the "middle of the desert, met with him in his tent, and had a discussion with him looking for some guidance as to how a major world terrorist could rehabilitate, pay compensation, as to whether there could be any insight as to what we might do with North Korea and Iran today."

Regrettably, he said, Col. Gadhafi couldn't offer a definitive solution, "but the rehabilitation of Libya and Gadhafi showed that there is some hope to turn major terrorists into a rehabilitated situation."
Hey asswipe! Yes, you Arlen! Did you read the title? Good. Now let me explain in plain English and not any other language- WE WANT THEM DEAD!

What is this you say Alren? You do not know where to start? We do it and here it is- start with the House of Saud. If you have to ask why, then let me remind you- fifteen, yes fifteen of the nineteen hi-jackers came from Saudia Arabai, and the bastard who paid for it is from where? Pronounce this slowly:


Now go on you weasel and do your job, go and start talking to that fellow Republicrat you stabbed in the back, go on now, we told you where we should have been bombing, go on now.

Bleh! You won't do a damn thing will you, you weasel piece of shit!

Point One

Police property: It?s finders keepers in NH

Thursday, Aug. 24, 2006

The state Supreme Court ruled on Tuesday that the government can keep and destroy more than 500 CDs taken from Michael Cohen, owner of Pitchfork Records in Concord, in 2003 even though the state failed to prove that a single disk was illegal.

Cohen was arrested for attempting to sell bootleg recordings. But the police case collapsed when it turned out that most of the recordings were made legally. Police dropped six of the seven charges, and Cohen went to trial on one charge. He beat it after the judge concluded that the recording was legal.

However, the police refused to return Cohen?s CDs. In the state Supreme Court?s Tuesday ruling, Chief Justice John Broderick, writing for the majority, reasoned so poorly that it appeared as if he?d made up his mind ahead of time.

Dissenting, Justice Linda Dalianis wrote, perceptively, that ?the majority does not explain how statutes prohibiting the production, publication, or sale of certain works render possession of such works unlawful.?

Further, Dalianis concluded that ?the state?s failure to establish in any way that the seized property constitutes contraband? made it impossible to justify keeping Cohen?s property.

Indeed, the majority?s reasoning is chilling. The majority concedes that no crime or illegal act was proven, but allows the confiscation anyway by concluding that a crime might have been committed. The majority used words such as ?apparently,? ?likely? and ?would have? to describe the alleged illegal activity.

It should go without saying that speculation by a few judges that a crime might have been committed is a frightening basis for taking someone?s property.

Earlier this year, Nashua police confiscated video recordings of two officers being rude to a citizen at his own home. Though police dropped all charges against Michael Gannon and admitted they could not prove the recordings were illegal, they still kept the tapes.

If someone is found with cocaine or any other item clearly illegal to possess, confiscation is easily justified. But the illegality of these items was never proven, and mere possession was not itself illegal.

If the government can seize and keep a citizen?s property by simply asserting that it is contraband, even when the assertion is unsupported by the facts, then we have entered into dangerous territory.

Lon Horiuchi - Assassin

To remind everyone, Lon Horiuchi has never been prosecuted for either the murder of Sammy and Vicki Weaver, or for his participation at Waco, Texas a few months later.

Yes, yesterday marked the fourteenth annivesary of Ruby Ridge and suggest that you revisit last years posts here and here.

It has only become worse since then...

Declaration of Independence - 230 Years

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.? That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, ? That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.? Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
  • He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
  • He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
  • He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
  • He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
  • He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
  • He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
  • He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
  • He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
  • He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
  • He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
  • He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
  • He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
  • He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
  • For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
  • For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
  • For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
  • For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
  • For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
  • For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
  • For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
  • For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
  • For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
  • He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
  • He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
  • He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of the Head of a civilized nation.
  • He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
  • He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
