choosing a team

Beast and the Beauty

At least the RIAA was able to get Apple and Microsoft to do the lion's share of stopping file sharing of music for them.  ESPN and the NFL have Janet Napolitano in their pockets it appears.

I use justintv very occasionally to watch crappy Terp basketball games (Longview) that aren't otherwise televised.  I can't say exactly why I'm pissed off that this is even on Homeland Security's radar, but I am. Prolly because I have grown to despise the agency since it was Obamanized; I always hated the name Homland Security.  Name evokes visions of  black uniforms and hob nailed jack boots.  Yahoo says it's not making much of dent  however. 

  Those running the ATDHE website do not appear to be bothered by ICE Homeland Security Investigations. They have already set up a new website that is hosting video streaming links for sporting events that will take place on Wednesday (February 2). It's very likely that, unless the website is shut down in the next four days, the new home of ATDHE will offer video streaming links for Super Bowl XLV.

I'm at a loss over why anyone would watch the Super Bowl on a computer anyway, and if they do, why the NFL should care? I guess I'm just the class bad boy;  supporting as I do cigarette smuggling,  watching Terps v. Pudnik U., and blowing up traffic cams all snoop cams. Dook Blows.


A Good Hummer

Jodi Lou asked me not to show this to MoSup so as not to make her jealous.  She doesn't get jealous anymore Jodi.  She laughs. Sigh.  By my calculations we're 43 days away from our first hummer of the year. Now, if we can get a bluebird and an oriole .. .

Jarett to General - "More wine boy"

Valerie Orders Wine

During an exclusive dinner hosted Monday by the Alfalfa Club, Obama adviser Valerie Jarret had just such a moment. And were it not for an irritated tipster, Jarret might have walked away from the dinner unblemished.

    According to our tipster, Jarrett was seated at the head table along with several other big-name politicians and a handful of high-ranking military officials. As an officer sporting several stars walked past Jarrett, she signaled for his attention and said, “I’d like another glass of wine.”


    White House economic adviser Austan Goolsbee, who was seated next to Jarret, began “cracking up nervously,” our tipster said, but no one pointed out to Jarrett that the man sporting a chestful of medals was not her waiter.

    “The guy dutifully went up and got her a glass of wine, and then came back and gave it to her and took a seat at the table,” our tipster said. “Everyone is in tuxedos and gowns at this thing, but the military people are in full dress uniform.” -

28ga Revolver

28ga Taurus Revolver
however ...

28ga Revolver

  Big gun, Short lived. Taurus 28 Gauge Revolver.

On Friday night Michael Bane told me that BATFE visited the Taurus booth at SHOT Show and declared that the 28 gauge revolver was in fact a SBS (Short Barreled Shotgun), not a handgun.

Guns America removed a blog post about the pistol (H/T: TruthAboutGuns) and replaced it with the following text...

Editor Note: Taurus has removed this firearm from their booth and has elected to not make it at this time. The rifle version will be available through Rossi at some point. [The Firearm Blog]

A 28 ga is, I believe, the bore equivalent of .55 cal.  Using the BATF's reasoning, then,  the S&W .50 cal would be a SBS if loaded with buckshot.  As a kid I used to shoot clay pigeons with a revolver using .22 cal clay pigeonWinchester .22 skeet. ammo.  Is this too now illegal?  Actually, this .28ga shotgun pistol should be relatively easy to build since it's smooth bore.  Would be handy in the coming days.  BTW, you can shoot a 12ga shotgun shell from a .12 ga flare gun.  Once. In a pinch.

Actually, it's come to this

About those dirty nukes

 al-Qaeda is planning dirty nukes

I'm certain in my own mind that things could never have reached this point under any of the last 5 elected Republican presidents (Ike, Nixon, Reagan, Bush, and Bush); but  is the legacy of the last 5 Democrats (Kennedy, Johnson, Carter, Clinton and Obama).  Since Obama has control right now, making threats is useless, because everyone knows he would never follow-up.  Actually, without Obama and Democrats in Congress, there would be no unmanageable threat in the first instance.

Too bad I'm not in charge.  Because I would tell the Islamic world this.  If one violent act is perped against the United States, the 100 biggest mosques in the world will be reduced to rubble in an instant. For starters. Knowing that I will most certainly keep my word, the Islamic world, the sane part if there is such a thing, will turn on the al-Qaedas, Talibans, and Iran from within. I will also water-board the crap out of anyone who can supply information that would thwart an attack aborning,  But, I'm not the president.  So, this is, for you, like buying a lottery ticket.  A few days of fantasy; then disappointment.

The Obama administration snubbed top GOP oversight official Rep. Darrell Issa on his first major document deadline as new chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, sending a short letter promising to comply in response to a major information request that was due Saturday at noon," reports TheDC's Jonathan Strong. "The Obama snub is the first sign of how the administration will respond to demands for documents and testimony by key officials from Republicans in control of the House now that the GOP holds the power of congressional subpoena.  President Obama snubs Issa on first major document deadline

I note that early this morning this person became 6 millionth discrete viewer of this blog. Whoever you are, you may have won some free popcorn, or alternatively a handshake - as the situation dictates.  Thank you for joining me in this adventure.  I think of all of you as friends.  Truly. 


Obamacare supporters will say the judicial score is tied: Two federal courts have upheld Obamacare, and two have declared part of it unconstitutional. But two against two among federal district courts is not a tie. [Obamacare Is in Critical Condition With the Courts]
Nice Guns
Nice opinion article from LSU law professor John S. Baker Jr on AOL News, about the constitutionality of Obamacare.. I've already heard the argument that " judicial score is tied," and prolly you have too.
District judges, whether state or federal, are risk-averse when interpreting the law. District judges preside over trial courts. They normally apply established law to the facts before them. Deciding questions of law is primarily the work of appellate courts.

Federal district judges, in particular, do not like being reversed by appellate judges. Frequent reversals are not good for one's ego or the reputation. Federal district judges naturally know, without consulting statistics, that very few federal statutes are declared unconstitutional.

So given the probabilities, it's much safer and easier for a lone federal district judge to declare federal statutes constitutional. Just leave it to the panel of three appellate judges to consider more carefully whether a statute is unconstitutional. That's what appellate judges are paid to do.

Because of this, the two decisions against Obamacare are much more significant than the two that upheld the legislation.
Interestingly "Five South Dakota lawmakers have introduced legislation that would require any adult 21 or older to buy a firearm “sufficient to provide for their ordinary self-defense.”  The major difference as I see it, is this would be a state mandate, enacted under powers vested by the United States Constiturion.  Additionally, similar laws, like Kennesaw, Georgia's mandatory gun ownership law (1982) have obviously survived challenges. 


Boundary Questions

Dr., there's a fly in my Thermos
  Fla., pediatrician Chris Okonkwo, MD, asked the 26-year-old mother of a 4-month-old patient if she owned a gun, and she refused to answer. For that reason, the physician gave her 30 days to find a new pediatrician. [Physicians, gun owners tangle over Florida "don't ask" gun bill]
A fly in yourThermos
That incident led to Florida HB 155 that would impose fines and/or jail time on physicians who ask about the presence of firearms in the homes of patients.  Good.  Dr.Okonkwo is guilty of  what's being called "boundary questioning,"  a.k.a. using his leverage as the family physician to insinuate himself into something that's none of his G.D. business.  It means Floridians, at least, recognize a creeping menace when they see one.  Evergreen State gun owners  have also been alarmed about questionnaires in doctors’ offices that inquire about guns in the home.
