Romney's Coming To Town

If you're anywhere around Salem today, stop by Carter Machinery on Lynchburg Pike.  The next President of the United States is going to be there.

Might even be some of those maggot-infested protesters show up.

Should be a hoot.

Better Think That Through, Sweetheart

What's wrong with this nitwit's musing?

Cher Cites 'Revolution' As Solution Against Racist Republicans...

Only one problem, babe.  Those "racist Republicans" have all the guns, remember?  Your kind decided you were better off unarmed and unaware.  So you're going to launch this revolution with what?  Your breast implants?  You gonna beat those racist Republicans to death with them?

Cher on the front lines of the revolution.


Now that's revolting.

Hey, We're Here To Protect You From The Russkies!

I've mentioned, on too many occasions, my opinion that NATO, in 2012, serves absolutely no purpose (other than to funnel millions of American taxpayer dollars into eager - and bare - European coffers each year).  You're about to find out just how fossilized it has become.

Turkey - a member state in good standing - has called upon NATO to come to its assistance in its dispute with Syria.  A dispute that could erupt into all-out conflict.

Expect NATO to respond with alacrity.  With a letter.  Of full-fledged backing.

But nary a bullet for Turkey's defense.  That ain't gonna happen.

NATO exists and is prepared to act, you see, should World War II break out.

Meanwhile, meetings will be held, press conferences will be established, tea will be served, photos ...

We Need More Gun Control!

News from the most gun-controlled city this side of Pyongyang:

Rate of Killings Rises 38 Percent in Chicago in 2012

Maybe there's something going on beyond the fact that bad guys have guns.

Maybe there's something going on in Chicago that has to do with it having too many bad guys wandering the streets with impunity.

Nah.  It's those shiny metal objects with minds of their own.

Just ask those Democratic politicians in the Big Windy who are tasked with the job of ending all the carnage.  They'll tell ya.


To Liberals Skin Color Is Everything

"Cathy Areu, a contributing editor for the Washington Post Magazine, said Monday, 'It’s a tough time to be a white man in America where the minorities are really taking over.'"

She was, of course, being serious.

These people are so consumed with racial animosity ...

With All Due Respect To Justice Scalia

How Barack Obama chooses to - or not to - enforce the laws of the land is not Scalia's concern.  Except when he goes into the voting booth, like every other American citizen.  But speaking from the bench?  Stick to interpreting the Constitutionality of the law for us, man, and leave the politics to others.

In the news:
Supreme Court splits its verdict on Arizona immigration law
By James Vicini and Jonathan Stempel, Reuters

The Supreme Court on Monday upheld the main provision of Arizona's crackdown on illegal immigrants but threw out three other parts, handing partial victories to President Barack Obama in his challenge to the law and to the measure's conservative supporters.

In an important test of whether federal or state governments have the power to enforce immigration laws, the top U.S. court unanimously upheld the statute's most controversial aspect, a requirement that police officers check the immigration status of people they stop, even for minor offenses such as jay-walking.

But in a split ruling, the court also struck down other provisions of the southwestern U.S. state's 2010 law, the first of its kind in the country, that the Obama administration had challenged in court. The votes on those provisions were 5-3 or 6-2, with the more conservative justices in dissent.

Justice Antonin Scalia read an angry dissent from the bench, saying he would have upheld the entire Arizona law.

It "boggles the mind" that the president might decline to enforce federal immigration law, Scalia said, referring to Obama's June 15 executive order stopping deportation for certain young people in the United States illegally. [link] [emphasis mine]
Yes, it's a travesty that Obama is abandoning the state of Arizona to illegals. And yes, his replacement is going to have to confront the growing lawlessness that prevails there.

But that is not within Antonin Scalia's purview as a Supreme Court Justice. He crossed the line.

Let us deal with Obama and the illegals, big guy. You stick to the Constitution.

Joe Arpaio For President

At least he's willing to enforce the law.  Unlike the man most responsible for law enforcement in the land.

In response to Obama's decision to ignore federal law and the Supreme Court's decision forbidding the state of Arizona from enforcing federal law, Maricopa County, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio has this message:

"I'm not stopping anything. I'm going to continue to enforce those state laws regardless of what the federal government is trying to put pressure on me to satisfy all these activists, which by the way are in front of my building right now. Three and half years they've been in front of my building. So, I'm not going to bend to the federal government, especially when we still have state laws to enforce."

My hero.


And Speaking Of Obama's Decision To Abandon Arizona

Investor's Business Daily:

"What does it say about the Obama administration's priorities that it effectively scraps its sworn pledge to uphold the law, usurps the legislative function by ignoring federal laws, punishes those who comply and puts its own re-election first?"

When Do WE Get Reimbursed?

This story continues to be big news in the news world:

N.Y. attorney general: Madoff victim payouts within 3 years

As everyone knows - and is repeatedly reminded by the press - Bernie Madoff is the investor who swindled $1.2 billion from his innocent victims.

Question:

When do the American people get the $862 billion back that Obama swindled through his failed "stimulus" scheme?

Well, We Know Where The Daughter Gets It

Look no further than the mother:
Utah mom upset over judge's hair-cut punishment
By the Associated Press

Price, Utah (AP) — A Utah mother says she felt intimidated in court when a judge told her that he would reduce her 13-year-old daughter's sentence if she chopped off the girl's ponytail in court — an offer the mother says she now wishes she hadn't taken.

Valerie Bruno, of Price, said she has filed a formal complaint against 7th District Juvenile Judge Scott Johansen with the Utah Judicial Conduct Commission. The teenager and an 11-year-old friend were referred to juvenile court for cutting off the hair of a 3-year-old girl with scissors in March and for harassing another girl in Colorado by telephone.

When the 13-year-old faced Johansen for a hearing in May, he ordered she serve 30 days in detention and to perform 276 hours of community service, but he also offered to take 150 hours of community service off the sentence if her mother cut her ponytail in his courtroom.

Bruno is now expressing regret for not consulting an attorney before taking her daughter into the courtroom.

Mindy Moss, mother of the 3-year-old whose hair was cut off, said she approved of the sentence and even spoke up during the hearing when she felt Bruno had not cut off enough of her daughter's hair. Johansen then directed Bruno to cut the ponytail all the way "to the rubber band." [link]
Looks to me like the mother needs some discipline. Maybe she'll then start being a mother.

A three-year-old?  Come on, lady.  You have a responsibility here.
