The Tea Party's First Victory
Obama opposes spending cuts right up to the time he calls them historic.

No Sitting on Fence

  This is getting to be a habit. President Obama ferociously resists tax cuts, trade agreements and spending cuts—right up to the moment he strikes a deal with Republicans and hails the tax cuts, trade agreements and spending cuts as his idea. What a difference an election makes.

On the other hand, the Obama-Pelosi Leviathan wasn't built in a day, and it won't be cut down to size in one budget. Especially not in a fiscal year that only has six months left and with Democrats running the Senate and White House. Friday's deal cuts more spending in any single year than we can remember, $78 billion more than President Obama first proposed.  [Full Article]
I'll take what I can get right now.  Obviously. BTW, a look back at the Clinton model may guide us here.

Calif. Lawmakers Granted Special Permission to Carry Concealed Weapons...

Al Capone and stuff

Al Capone and stuff
everything explained
  Featuring searchable dossiers on characters as wide-ranging as Al Capone, Marilyn Monroe, Notorious B.I.G. and the 9/11 hijackers, the FBI has upgraded its online public records to provide more than 2,000 digitized documents. [Fox News]

My neighbor the Democrat

In law school (De Paul) my dad learned that for wont of a decent lawyer, Al Capone's tax evasion conviction would never have happened.  The statute of limitations had expired on the prosecution's case.  I've mentioned that story several times over the years, but doubt anyone believed me.  So it was with great satisfaction last night that a Hitler Channel story confirmed it.  The reason it remained officially dormant, I learned, was that federal statue proscribes issuing details of people's tax returns (that's what the announcer said).  That didn't make sense, since it seems we learn about Democrat tax cheats all the time; plus - Capone never filed a tax return. The recent  release of digital records by the FBI opened the doors. 
What the records showed was the feds knew their case was past the limitation, and were scared to death Capone's lawyers would figure it out.  Which means exactly what it sounds like; the feds will do whatever it takes to get people they want to get, law or no law.  That Capone was a piece of crap killer who deserved the electric chair is beside the point. So there's that.

New FBI ‘vault’ discusses Utah UFOs, other secrets
Kay: We're gonna check the hot sheets.
[Kay pulls up to a newsstand and buys a pile of supermarket tabloids]
Jay: THESE are the hot sheets?
Kay: Best investigative reporting on the planet. But go ahead, read the New York Times if you want. They get lucky sometimes. [MIB]
Edwards: Why the big secret? People are smart. They can handle it.
Kay: A person is smart. People are dumb, panicky dangerous animals and you know it. Fifteen hundred years ago everybody knew the Earth was the center of the universe. Five hundred years ago, everybody knew the Earth was flat, and fifteen minutes ago, you knew that humans were alone on this planet. Imagine what you'll know tomorrow. [MIB]
Of course this is just part of the drip-drip-drip method that gummints, our gummint, uses to correct the lies they've told in the past.  You know, so it doesn't hit us like a ton of bricks and cause ugly marches and hangings and glavins.  In this instance, I suppose we're being prepared for the news that half of us are alien (I mean other-worldly, not Messican illegals) peeps.  Cross bred with people from Gnarkon.  They, having destroyed theirGnarkon with social engineering run amok, will now do the same here.  Of course that explains why half of us are suddenly so goddamn different from the other half.  Democrats v. Americans, if you will. But you already knew that, didn't you?

East Texas Natural Gas
Could Fuel U.S. For 150 Years

A newly discovered natural gas shale in East Texas could help fuel America's appetite for energy, providing a plentiful source and potential $1.75 trillion economic impact for the area.

In some ways the potential benefits of tapping into the Haynesville Shale are like that of a “Jed Clampitt” rags-to-riches scenario, according to one energy expert.

Comprising about 3.5 million acres, the shale contains enough natural gas to power the United States for about 150 years.

And it's in portions of East Texas and Louisiana.

“We are the Saudi Arabia of natural gas,” said Ernie LaFlure, vice president and general manager of EOG Resources. “The Haynesville Shale is among the top five in the world — I think it's the greatest story of natural gas today.” [More from Tyler Texas]

Coming into the new year there were numerous stories in these parts that natural gas was in abundant supply and prices would be way down.  So what happened to that?
