House votes 244-185 to repeal Obama healthcare reform law

Senate Democrats won't let it come to the floor - because it would likely get the necessary 51 votes.  With any luck, Obamacare will go down in January.

The "N-word"

Res Ipsa Loquitor

Seems Joan Peterson's been throwing around the N-word again, that four-letter one: "Need".

    "[O]ur (Common Gun [non]Sense) opponents repeatedly suggest that civilians should not be allowed to carry firearms for self-defense, a key reason being that civilians don’t receive sufficient training compared to police. But then when we seek out the same kind of training as police, they disapprovingly exclaim, “Who needs ‘tactical firearm training’?”"

I need 'tactical firearm training' because none of your business, Joan, that's why. [Righteous Rant Continued]

Joan Peterson, the proprietor of “CommonGunSense” is a well-known entity to parts of the gunblogosphere. She’s “Japete”, who practices “reasoned discourse”, by which is meant selective comment moderation (even editing).

Hers was not a serious question of “who really needs tactical training?”, but more “why do they need a gun?”. As I recall, someone found she’s either on the Brady board, or the board for Joyce as well.

You’re trying to put “reason” where there isn’t any. [comment from HERE]

The Pottification Of The Navy
Yet Another Reason Not To Enlist

Hoo, the Navy has gone funnier than when Junior put his tadpoles in Aunt Lu's milk. It's wonderful. Headline, the Washington Times: "Navy admiral wants to get rid of urinals."

On aircraft carriers. Yep. See, urinals aren't good for gender-equity, which is what the Navy is for.

Best I can tell, the admiral figures urinals make the girls aboard feel plumbing-challenged. It gums up their self-concept. And life, remember, is already tough for gals on warships. It's bad enough having those boomy old gun thingies everywhere, and those smelly airplanes. They make a hostile environment and all. But the worst is those disgusting white patriarchy symbols, stuck threateningly to bathroom walls.

Think about it. Every time a woman goes to the men's room, there they hang, row on row, in silent reproach, telling her she isn't Fully A Person.

The horror.

But now help gallops over the horizon, thumpety-thump. The help's name is Admiral John Nathman, and (incredibly) he's a naval aviator. Yes indeed. Potty John, the Carrie Nation of urinals, is going to make it all better. He wants "gender-neutral water closets."

When I was a Marine, I always wanted a commander who had an interest in urinals. None of them did, and they probably still don't. But the Navy, as Marines have always suspected, is a little different. And apparently getting differenter. (Fred on Everything continued)

I am reminded.  Several years ago I spent about 10 days in the hospital for what was first suspected to be a heart attack.  After much consultation (*this was before Hillary Clinton's attempt to seize health care entirely changed hospital focus from cure to to a $ and ¢),  the best guess was a blood clot thrown to the lungs by some broken toes. but not even that was clear.

Anyway, the hospital room television set did not show actual TV broadcasting, but was used for various heath PSA stuff  One of them was an instruction film for women on breast examination.  Now remember, I had been at this point detained for a week or so.  I suffered greatly because  my pulse was being monitored at the nursing station for any heart beat fluctuation.  If you catch my drift.  On the plus side, I had not since boyhood had  such interesting dreams.

Oath Keepers v. Blue Helmets

Tails of the Gun  


Res Ipsa LoquitorOn July 27th, the nations of the world are scheduled to meet in New York to sign a global Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Disguised as a way to prevent the proliferation of small arms throughout the world, it is, in fact, a backdoor way to legislate gun control in the United States and effectively repeal our Second Amendment.

The ATT will set up a global body which will require all nations to regulate firearms so that they can prevent their exportation to other countries. Inevitably, this will require countries to inventory the guns in private hands and to register them. A gun ban is not far away.

The ATT, under the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution, would have the power of a constitutional amendment and would, effectively, repeal the Second Amendment guaranteeing us the right to bear arms. We must fight to stop the US from signing the treaty and, if we fail, block Senate ratification. [Full]

In the early days of this blog, Jimmy Carter, acting on his own, without portfolio,  invited  the UN to monitor US elections,  I asked readers then to sign a blood oath.   Fully 70% agreed  to treat any blue helmet on US soil , acting in any capacity  whatever that assumed domionion over any US citizen, be summarily treated like Nazis landed by submarine on U.S, shores. Ahem.

True, my readership then was about 10 people, but I extrapolated to include all blog readers.  I am therefore calling upon some 80 million Americans to honor their oath, gird their loins,  and act accordingly here.

Planes, Trains, and Automobiles

It's not clear what these people are about.  If it's a dragnet after a kidnapping, bank robbery, etc., that's one thing.  However, now that the provisional wing of the Obamunista  (aka TSA gone wild) are let loose by Kommander Napolitano- on all forms of transportation (even walking)- it's another.

Juxtapose this with Eric Holder's war on Arizona's (and other state's rife with illegal aliens) law letting local police ask drivers, including Aztecs, detained for traffic violations for identification. 

Enough is enough.  Whoever that guy in the video is, he's a good role model.  Thanks to Tom Smith for getting my blood moving this morning.
