NEWSWEEK vs. The Atlantic: Dueling Data wonks

Newsweek‘s “Hit the road, Barack: Why we need a new president” written by conservative historian Niall Ferguson vs. The Atlantic‘s article “A Full Fact-Check of Niall Ferguson’s Very Bad Argument Against Obama” by senior associate editor Matthew O’Brien are good reads.

The only problem going on here is with me and my frustration in knowing who to believe anymore without having to do my own research to ferret out the truth.  If I have to devote one more minute to fact-checking the supposed ‘fact-checkers’ on facts (not to mean the writers referenced here), I might as well finish the dam research and go the one-more-step and just publish my dam book Liars for Hire for a million bucks advance and get on with my life, hunh?  I dream of isolated beaches….aaaaaah

Crikey-Roos!

Michelle Obama’s Princeton classmate, vice-president of CGI Federal, the Healthcare.gov contractor

Michelle-O’s Princeton classmate, Toni Townes-Whitley, is senior vice president at CGI Federal, the no-bid contractor that built the $678 million Healthcare.gov according to The Daily Caller. This is my answer to those, myself included, who wondered why in the he!! would our .government give a no-bid contract of that size to a non-American contractor when so many Americans are out of work.

And by the way, what’s up with the no-bid contracts these days?

Open-fire, spray SUSPICIOUS vehicle with bullets on open road? You’re kiddin’ me

Since when has it been alright for lahw enfarcement to open-fire on a vehicle on the open roads of America?  (S)

open-fire-on-the-public.sm

Not since Bonnie & Clyde, I’d reckon!  Yes, yes, yes, I know lahw enfarcement are searching for this Dorner character, the 33 year old fugitive suspected of killing three people and injuring two others.  BUT COME ON!  Lahw enfarcement mistake the vehicle for Dorner’s pickup, open-fire on the vehicle injuring 2 mail carriers?!?  HOLY COW. This is nucking futz.

And to think, we all agree it’s outrageous when SWAHT teams kick down the door of the wrong house and spray the inside with bazookas killing innocent people. -oo- But now, Americans have to worry about being gunned down in public by trigger-happy LEcowboys out & about on a manhunt?!?

Megaphone Alert: Lahw Enfarcement to Americans:  PAY ATTENTION. We are conditioning you to the policies and procedures of the impending lahw enfarcement manifesto which may include open-fire on moving vehicles on our highways, pin-point drone attacks and surgical excision of targeted homesteads suspected to harbor ugly thoughts.

Please.professionals with a brain, moderate disposition and common sense, you need to pony up to the big kahunas and put a stop to this madness.  Stop talking about these abuses, lecturing the choir, and ‘safety-in-numbers’ C-SPAN appearances if you can’t deliver change to these lawless practices.  Otherwise, take another hit on your Hopium and ride outta town on your horse with no legs, howboutit?

I appreciate my gun. Thank you gun. Thank you for standing at the ready. Thank you for saving my life.

On the Occasion of Gun Appreciation Day,  January 19, 2013

Ode to Gun

glock22-sm

Without you, my gun
I’d have no one, not even
me.  I owe you one.

So here’s THAT one, gun;
where I say you are MY gun-
nothing above you

save Heaven’s Father.
Nothing between us except
God and our country.

Have Gun Will Travel
to ends of earth proclaiming
God’s Liberty song!

Please don’t tread on me
world, or I’ll make my gun sing!
rat-a-tat-tat, rat

C’mon gun, let’s get
hell out of Dodge, let heaven
take a crack at it.

From dust are we born,
to dust we shall rest in peace;
me and Blue steel gun.

Hey, gunny! Gun appreciation day is January 19, 2013.

Yessiree! Someone had to do it. Via Edmund Jenks article on Technorati‘s politics page , Gun Appreciation Day.com has stepped up to the plate.  Gun Appreciation Day website is a one-stop “shop” for those who want to learn more about the Petition to Defend Gun Rights and how you can participate on January 19, 2013.

Gun Appreciation Day is sponsored by organizations such as the Second amendment Foundation and Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms, Committee to Draft Judge Andrew Napolitano, Women Warriors PAC,  Americans’ Right to Arms, American Sovereignty PAC, Women Against Gun Control, and Doctors for Responsible Gun Ownership to name a few.

Succinctly put, The Gun Appreciation Day’s sponsors are encouraging gun rights’ supporters to shop at gun stores and visit shooting ranges in protest over potential crackdowns.  Let’s do it, my fellowmen and women!

Gun Violence Prevention Public Forum, in liberal Sonoma County, CA, brings out 2nd Amendment advocates in droves

On January 10, 2013, Sonoma County Board of Supervisors heard from the public after Rep. Mike Thompson (D-CA) and California law enforcement, mental health and education officials spoke at a public forum on gun violence (covered by C-SPAN, video can be viewed here).  What surprised me was the majority were gun and Second Amendment advocates in attendance.  Some of them minced no words in letting the officials know they knew their rights and showed their Don’t Tread On Me unwelcome mat as they stood ground to the Democrat Representative.  Going so far as to expose the fact that the CIA created killers (insinuating their use in false flags), citing a 1994 government report (General Accounting Office) which showed that the Pentagon worked with the CIA in dosing thousands of military subjects with LSD and other drugs.  Last year a group of vets sued the agency for illnesses and trauma caused by the “diabolical and secret [MK-ULTRA] testing programs.”

 

Bonus hair-raiser at the end at time segment 02:40:08.  Can anyone catch what ‘NASA report’ this woman is referring to?
