Who's doling out too much money?

It's all quite true too...

and nauseating, all at once.

Seen at Les' blog.

Is Krugman talking like a despot,

Or is the man just an idiot?

The Obama administration wants to spend money, forget how much or how that number is rationalized or amortized over time, to "make a job," supposedly. Never mind that this can NOT be done, as government doesn't actually produce anything.

Next, wrap your head around this bit;
"Next, write off anyone who asserts that it’s always better to cut taxes than to increase government spending because taxpayers, not bureaucrats, are the best judges of how to spend their money."
Write off?

Write off?

Write. Off?

What does he mean, "Write off?"

Does he mean that in the Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalinesque sense of the word?

How about I write him off?

Honestly, I wish that fucker would just drop dead.

Just fuck it all, already

Not sure what we gunnies can do now that another Clintonista, gun-hating bastard is assuming the role of Top Cop.

I'm sure Mr. Holder's minions are going to be going on a gun-ban orgy, reinterpreting and making up new rules for reclassifying and vilifying anything they determine to be remotely close to "assault weapon". They can't get passed the identity thing with deodands.

Just ask Carolyn McCarthy about barrel shrouds. Authoritative, isn't she, and in more than one way.

Piss on the lot of them.

Stumblefuck-in-Chief is wasting no time, here.

I almost can't believe that he'd be so stupid as to do this. His toadies must have their greasy mitts on the marionette strings.

Can anyone deny that this is the final nail in the coffin for Detroit, all the while handing the hammer to the quisling idiot Greeniks to deliver the final blow?

I think I'll go to the can and puke my guts out now.

I suppose I can still read about a lost country, called America.

Real class, there...

with the Obama body art.

Fine with me, as I have no use of tattoos, of any kind, and it will make the spotting of you Lightworker minions that much easier, as if your Obama-Biden bumper sticker laden Priuses weren't enough of a hint.

Belated announcement

At Chris's request, I'm breaking with my longstanding position of anonymity with regards to posting any sort of pictures of me or my family by first showing this;

and now stating that the Krauter and I have welcomed our first offspring into this world on January 6th, at 3pm.

He was in a standing breech position (and had been for the whole pregnancy), so we had to do the "drug her up and drag him out" routine with a cesarean delivery, but he seems no worse for wear, nor does mom. He is of average size and weight, but is eating and sleeping pretty well, and gaining weight quite nicely.

We couldn't be happier.

That is all.

Poor timing

Saw this bit at James Wesley, Rawles's excellent preparedness site a couple of days ago, specifically about the Steyr comment in Inauguration Factor. I agree with the general tone of what's being said there, the timing for reintroduction of Steyr's excellent AUG rifle couldn't be poorer.Align Right

I had seen the exact same thing about two months ago, and even pointed out how incredibly stupid the projected dates were, considering the apparent change in executive "leadership" in this country, and that since civvy sales are a pretty substantial market (the Gold Mine, actually), they were stepping on their own collective dick by just now getting with the program.

Still, I'd love to get my hands on one of those.

Christina's World painter passes

Via Les, I read that the painter of one of my favorites has passed.

One of the few paintings that has the complete power to transcend ordinary technique and the starkness of the subject with raw emotion through careful palette selection, scale and pose. Really something.

"They're just hauling off and killing us now"

I had the exact same thought cross my mind when I saw that travesty unfold in almost real-time on the idiot box a couple of weeks ago, across the channel board.

Seriously scary shit.

Also, take this other bit into account the next time you run across one of those "only ones" types;
"...a profession that should call for the best possible use of reasoning skills because of the life and death imperatives involved with every moment has been reduced to the province of robots whose chief mental ability now is to leaf through a procedures manual in their head. Listen to them: they will apologize for procedures all day long (this includes their investigations), and you will not hear a word of reason anywhere in it."
Loved the THX1138 analogy too. Fitting, and also one of the most underrated Sci-Fi films ever, and for all the same implications that Billy is suggesting.

It also appears to me like that fucker, Mehserle, absolutely realizes what he did, and understands how seriously cooked his goose is over this, being arrested out of state and all, now, awaiting extradition.

This really makes me think about something Jeff Cooper wrote about several years ago in his Cooper's Commentaries, regarding a similar circumstance. He posited that cops don't really need to carry guns. I'm inclined to agree with him.

Mark my words on this; someone, at some point in the not too distant future, is going to be put upon by another one of these authoritarian pricks, and eventually, it's going to be someone who is not about to "go out like that", and knows how to fight back, and probably with lethal consequences to the offending cop.

I can only hope I'm on the jury that acquits him.

More linky, no thinky

What a nice way to start the new year, what with the imminent inauguration of the Lightworker into the Whore House.

He'll waive that fucking magic wand and make it all better, doncha know.

Might just go after that AR after all.
