Bob is survived by his wife, Connie, son, Mike (Wendy), granddaughter, Bailey, and sisters, Jean Allstun and Carol (Gary) Davis.

Muehler v. Mena

I'm not a lawyer, but neither, evidently, is the Attorny General
Muehler v. Mena, 544 U.S. 93 (2005), was a unanimous decision by the United States Supreme Court, which held that the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution allows detention of a search subject in handcuffs while a search is being conducted, and that it does not require officers to have an independent reasonable suspicion before questioning a subject about their immigration status.

Not to mention that Rhode Island has been enforcing the same law without objection.  So, are these two just terminally stupid?  Or, rhetorically speaking,  are they just able to arrogantly ignore law inconvenient to their agenda. Either way, both are in violation of their respective Oath  of Office and ought be impeached.  But, considering the Democrat controlled Ethics panel wants Rangel reprimanded; least severe punishment., and the virtual certainty that Maxine Waters will also skate, the rule of  law will remain in the dust bin. As Eric Cartman is wont to say, I really hate those guys. 


KUHNER: Should Arizona secede?
Choice between devolution and dissolution may be inevitable

Judicial activism is pushing America to the breaking point. This week, a federal judge blocked key provisions of Arizona's immigration law, thwarting the will of the people. The decision was ominous and will reverberate for years to come.

Judge Susan Bolton, appointed by former President Bill Clinton, is a liberal elitist who believes judicial imperialism trumps democracy. Her ruling states that local police cannot check the immigration status of people arrested or stopped for violations of the law. In her view, that would amount to an abuse of civil liberties and unduly burden the federal immigration system. She also stipulated that residents cannot be required to carry proof of legal status.

Her decision strikes at the very heart of the Arizona law, S.B. 1070. Supported by President Obama's Justice Department and the American Civil Liberties Union, the ruling sets the stage for a protracted legal battle. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vows to appeal the ruling - all the way to the Supreme Court, if necessary. In the meantime, the people of Arizona - and America - will continue to endure the onslaught of illegal immigration.

Mr. Obama's decision to sue Arizona is a betrayal of his constitutional oath to secure our porous border.  [

THEN right after I got a virus (I'm using my other computer). What happened, I thought I updated my Firefox and voila, it asks me to update Adobe Flash - quite common. Shortly I realize a virus was implanted on my computer and I go into save my computer mode.

Using computer #2, I find out more about the virus very new virus. Anyways, I contacted Microsoft (googled: Micorsoft XP and Paid Support) and they got me to safe mode and I'm running their free safety scanner in safe mode  - it's taking a few hours and they're calling me tomorrow.

NOTE: This virus is insidious. Cannot do a darn thing, it overtakes.

Thanks Marc, I ran it all night and it was still going this morning (in background).  I assume I was clean.

Woman whose nose was cut off by Taliban

Not just her nose, though: They ordered her husband to saw off her ears too for the crime of running away from home.

I guess the concept of winning in Afghanistan and Iraq to isolate Iran lacks the necessary pizazz.  I am gratified that some of these government lefties are resisting a replay of what we did to Vietnam, when we bailed out of a winning situation and allowed Hồ Chí Minh's version of the Taliban to slaughter a few million people.  Hot Air for more.

100 Magazine articles

Boned Jello The Best Magazine Articles Ever

This is the only one of the 100  I remember reading.  

My favorite magazine article, not on this list, was a name-forgotten short story in some sports 'zine.  Was about an oldtimey baseball game between rival towns. It was, as I remember, lengthy and rich in detail.  The payoff came with the homeboys nursing a one run lead.  The rival had  bases loaded, two outs, and a count of 0-2 on the batter in the bottom of the 9th.  The catcher's pants then  split as he crouched behind the plate.  This resulted in the pitcher seeing, not the two finger sign for fast ball, low and inside, but a three fingered call for high and away.    Two runs scored on the passed ball.

I'll download these, and read them on my home-made Kindle reader while I'm in waiting rooms.  Oh.  Frank Sinatra Has A Cold is a good read.

Obama Gravitas

FDR and BHB | Hugging and Smooching in a Tree

Comparing the Great Depression
 to the Great Recession

Picture credit: Tom Mann
President Roosevelt became Hoover on steroids. FDR and his advisers, despite some early moves to cut spending and control the deficit that Hoover left behind, decided that ever-larger federal spending would trigger economic expansion and pull the country out of its economic slump. Thus Roosevelt began the Agricultural Adjustment Act (AAA), which paid farmers not to produce, and then expanded Hoover’s Reconstruction Finance Corporation, which provided bailout money to large banks and corporations. He also expanded spending on public works and targeted large subsidies to various special interests.

Boned Jello
President Obama, who often cites FDR, followed his example of targeting spending to interest groups. He signed into law a $787 billion stimulus package that sent tax dollars to various cities and voting groups across the nation. He later supported an expensive “jobs bill” that would send money into key congressional districts. The President also campaigned for a cap-and-trade bill and universal health coverage, both of which promised to increase the federal debt substantially. In fact, the increase in federal debt under Obama and Roosevelt is similar. The national debt more than doubled in Roosevelt’s first two terms, and it is projected to double again in eight to ten years. [full fury]

Old yeller?
