Tails of the Gun
When close in wet work needs doing

I like to think of this as a "power bayonet."  So what do you think?  Should the Barn Army buy about 50 of these?  Kim?

Maybe Obama Will Apologize For Them

News From the Perpetually Aggrieved Religion of Peace

O.K.  Now we've had apologies from the Precedent of the US and several other people plus a rash of murders by "outraged" Muslim "believers" over the destruction of a few compromised religious texts.  Even though Islamic scholars agree that burning is the prescribed method for getting rid of damaged or defiled Qur'ans, the outrage over outrage continues.

We're also repeatedly told by our highest leaders, both black and white, Christian and Jew, and military and civilian, that Islam is indeed a "religion of peace," and that the vast majority of its followers are decent, god-fearing people just trying to live reasonable and productive lives.  This is, of course, and always has been pure balderdash, the most cowardly form of appeasement.

About two days ago, I even heard a commentator saying that Muslims respect the holy texts and icons from all religions and would never burn Bibles as our vicious, bloodthirsty, infidel troops did with the deeply sacred (spit!) Qur'ans.  Well, anybody wanna bet on the likelihood of this clip making the news on any of the alphabet networks? 

Proof enough for me that Islam is a suppurating carbuncle on the soul of decent human society, a malignant tumor spreading throughout the body of mankind, a philosophy which makes zombies of what might otherwise have turned out to be people, and the strongest advertisement I can think of for universally outlawing the very word Allah.   [by Tom Smith]

Thank you Tom.   I had just taken my bedtime vitamins, and now you may explain this to MoSup.

When Men Could Be Men

When men were men ...

This isn't him, but it reminds me of Greg "Pappy" Boyington.  In the 70's Maryland's Terrapin Club's (sports boosters) front man was an ex-Marine Major named Bob Ayres.  Bob had once been assigned to "control" Pappy during a war bond tour.   Pappy  really, really liked Bourbon and women, and was apt to disappear if left on his own parole.  I don't remember whether Bob told us this story, or if I read it in Baa Baa Black Sheep.  Anyway, Boyington would frequently be hung-over, or still drunk during his Flying Tiger missions.  He'd be okay getting there, and during the fighting, but liked to nap on the way back.  He  devised a harness of rubber bands to hold the stick on a proper bearing.  His internal clock and engine revs by his wingman would wake him when it was time to land.  I used "when men were men,"  but I do think  "when men could be men" is more accurate.

Stuff I don't get

Res Ipsa Loquitur

I don't watch NFL pre-season games, and I don't pay much attention to GOP primary stuff   Both are meaningless.  In the first instance, some teams experiment while others may go all out to win. The second,  I believe, is as scripted as an Obama media interview.  I have noticed a recent trend  from reading the Drudge page though.  A few days before any primary the headline is "[Santorum; Newt; etc] leads Romney by 12 in [State]. " And then Romney wins handily.  Make of that what you will. 

This observation from Tam [Things I Don't Get, #349,723] also resonates,

{...] Anyhow, there's a certain class of people who will read the paragraphs above and, like a knee tapped with a mallet, launch into a "Well, when you Libertarians can elect a dog catcher, then we'll take you seriously, until then..."

This always sounds to my ears as "Well, our guys may be despicable turd-burglars, but at least they win elections!" and therefore makes absolutely no sense to me.

IE TAB2 and the Best of Two Worlds

Res Ipsa Loquitur

Internet Explorer is vastly superrior to Firefox in look, feel and speed (IMO), but Firefox has  Add-ons that I, by now, cannot do without.  The solution took me long enough to figure out, but I did, and it works.  

The IE2 Add-on lets you view any page  using the IE engine, but within Firefox.  Not only that, you can specify that certan pages always open in IE.  What I did instead of mucking about was simple.  I dragged the IE icon down to my links bar, and presto!

Hitler and the SEIU

The Obamissariat
Secretive nationwide network gives SEIU new organizing muscle

I suppose we could compare Obama to any of the myriad totalitarian monsters and wannabes who dot history, but Hitler is the cultural standard for such, so why carry coal to Newcastle?  That established; news of Obama's Brown Shirts, or in this case Purple.

. The politically aggressive Service Employees International Union (SEIU) has quietly created a national network of at least eight community-organizing groups, some of which function alongside the Occupy Wall Street movement, a Daily Caller investigation shows.

Incorporated by the SEIU as local non-profits, the groups are waging concerted local political campaigns to publicly attack conservative political figures, banks, energy companies and other corporations.

Each local group has portrayed itself as an independent community organization not tied to any special interest. But they were founded, incorporated, and led by SEIU personnel. [Full story]

"... community-organizing groups ...Each local group has portrayed itself as an independent community organization not tied to any special interest. "
If that reminds you of ACORN, it should.  That group was Obama's principle organizing arm before finally being blown out of the water by the late Andrew Breitbart.*  ACORN has tried desperately to remake itself, but in the meanwhile Obama needs their "organizing" ability NOW!  Cracking heads, and packing  voter registration rolls with ghost voters are integral to getting him reelected.  For us, this is 1932 deja vu all over again,

*I Googled for the Breitbart Acorn videos, and while I'm sure they're out there, the first full page of results are dominated by leftists purporting to show he created the whole thing with slick editing techniques.  In essence (sticking with my Hitler theme), they argue that  records of Hitler's crimes were manipulated because film of him playing with his dog Blondi and holding babies were largely excised.
