Insolent statue

Include Maryland in this equation

Blue states have allowed public sector employment to explode; and are dominated by public employee unions since the sixties. New York and California are examples where public sector employment has grown unchecked and been allowed to dominate the political process.

The cluster farg continues

You can call me uncle, or you can call me Sam, but you doesn't have to call me stupid gummint assholes.

In the Obamacy - not tolerated

Potato Salad Extravaganza
Entertainment For We Warriors

We again find ourselves in a World War,
facing enemies at home and abroad.  Tyrants intent on dismantling our beloved United States,  reducing us to state owned automatons.  Our days are filled with the constant horror of screeching Stukas
dive bombing our positions,
and nary a one of us dare sleep a full night, waiting
for the midnight knock on our front doors - it's time
for some USO! 

Of course there too things have changed.  Today's Andrew sisters are giving lap dances to today's Nazis,  so what to do?  That's right! Through the magic of video, I give you the Amazing Ross Sisters (1944).  If they were around today, they'd have their own Las Vegas revue.  Watch, and be amazed.  No fair thinking "foursome" either.  This is family time succor.

Solar Free Loaders

Green Freeloaders!
Today's Bwahaaaaa-haaaaaaaa

This is so ... so Obamaesque.  Not a day goes by I don't land on a channel lecturing about the joy of green.  Solar Panels.  Wind power. Hell, there's even a new Planet Green Channel that seems only to feature endless hours of the ubiquitous Emeril Lagasse cooking "green."  Don't ask; I haven't watched.   This story then, about a Colorado energy company ratcheting up fees on "solar freeloaders," is a knee slapper.  "Freeloaders."  OMFG!  Earlier this morning I noted, but not wroted this story about Wind Turbines causing all kinds of health problems.  Sleeplessness, headaches, nausea - all the same effects watching their promotion cause me. Touché!  Not mentioned in any of these articles is the one safe haven on all the internet from the Green Terror. This blog! Green Free for over a year.  Except to snigger.  Someday I'll tell you about my friend who lobbied congress for solar energy grant money.  You'll puke too.


Downhill Racer

The poll has other bad news for Democrats and President Obama.  The percentage of people who believe the country is on the wrong track has risen six points since April.  The percentage of people who approve of the way Obama is handling the economy has dipped below 50 percent for the first time.  The percentage of people who approve of his handling of the health care issue is 41 percent, with 46 percent disapproving.  The percentage of people who have a positive opinion of Obama is down nine points since April.  The percentage of people who say the president has strong leadership qualities, can be trusted to keep his word, will work with people of different viewpoints, is likable -- all those numbers are down.

In sum, the poll results are bad news across the board for the president and his party.  That doesn't mean equally good news for Republicans; the people polled are still not ready to say they would rather have ....

Read the rest here [New poll is bad, bad news for Obama, Democrats] .  The WSJ poll mirrors what Rasmussen has been reporting all this month - Obama's in a swan dive.  I concur that this bad news for democrats does not mean good news for Republicans, because nobody knows who the hell they are anymore.  In their defense however,  it must be noted that their efforts in Congress to stop this Marxist steamroller get zero mention in the media that doesn't include "obstructionist."  The media continue to swim in the Obama tank.

Speaking of Newsweek ... kudos!  For the second time since 1992  a Newsweek embedded sycophant has made good.  Joe Klein  repaid  Newsweek readers in 1992 by failing to mention anything at all about the feckless nature of the Clintons he was witnessing live, opting instead to put it all in Primary Colors. "   We got Clinton, Klein got a movie deal. Now, Newsweek's Obama embedded reporter Daren Briscoe will start a new job on Monday as Deputy Associate Director of Public Affairs for the Office of National Drug Control Policy. 

But, can anything Newsweek's done recently by way of pimping Obama beat this week's cover?  Egad. Retire the trophy.

Where's Obama's Form I-9?

Today's Poseur Poser

I wonder if the President of the United
States is considered an employee of the
federal government.  He receives a paycheck. 
Does he have federal income taxes withheld,
FICA?  Did he file a W-4 with withholding instructions?
  If so, shouldn't he be required to file one of these?

Panther Pardon Perp Perrelli Public
Number 3 at Justice intervened in Black Panther prosecution

Didn't take long for Wikipedia to update Janet Reno protogé Perelli's bio, did it? Jerry Seper only identified him today.
Perrelli is a big fan of the New Black Panther Party (NBPP), going so far as to vacate findings against the party for their voter intimidation acts that were caught on tape in November 2008. The department's career lawyers in the Voting Section of the Civil Rights Division who pursued the complaint for five months had recommended that Justice seek sanctions against the party and three of its members after the government had already won a default judgment in federal court against the men.
Looks like culture of corruption to me boss.

Full Faith and Credit


The Jurist (Univ. Pittsburgh School of Law journal) presents the legal challenge to the Senate's narrow rejection of the Thune Amendment (granting  concealed carry reciprocity across state lines).  It runs afoul of the Constitution's full faith and credit clause.
  • ... when permit holders travel across state lines, the validity of their permits – and thus their ability to exercise their right of self-defense – depends upon a crazy-quilt patchwork of ever shifting reciprocity agreements hammered out among the states. This is precisely the sort of problem the Constitution empowers Congress to solve, giving it the authority to have states extend "full faith and credit" to each others' public acts. Ensuring that Americans do not trip on internal borders is a basic feature of our national existence.
  •    the Supreme Court's decision in District of Columbia v. Heller [PDF file]. Heller confirmed that most licensing regimes regulating the carrying of handguns are not unconstitutional – but it also signaled the end of hyper-restrictive laws in the minority of holdout states which print handgun carry licenses on paper made of unobtainium. Rejecting the argument that "keep and bear arms" was a unitary concept referring only to a right to possess weapons in the context of military duty, the Supreme Court held that to "bear arms," as used in the Second Amendment, is to "wear, bear, or carry...upon the person or in the clothing or in a pocket, for the purpose...of being armed and ready for offensive or defensive action in a case of conflict with another person."
  • The Supreme Court also offered that the concealed carrying of weapons may be prohibited, and for this proposition it had ample precedential support. A close reading of Heller, and of the cases upon which it relied, reveal that concealed carry bans are lawful only where open carrying is permitted, lest the right to carry a gun be completely abrogated.
Read the full article.  Then wonder, if you live in Maryland, how our state continues to get away with what, arguably, are the most  restrictive  across the board gun laws in the nation?  I'm demanding a citizens arrest.
