    Of course they don’t give the race of teh victim or the suspects – can you guess? A video of a 17 year old girl who has the mental capacity of a 4 year old being gang raped spread by cell phones through South Africa on Wednesday, shocking a nation battling an epidemic of violence against women.

    If Obama had a daughter… oh, wait, he does! Two of them, in fact. Guess he’d better come up with another line, though he probably will ignore this.

    The girl was reported missing in late March and was apparently raped last week in the Johannesburg township of Soweto, police said.

    You think our immigration laws are messed up? Check out some of the laws they’re passing in socialist Europe! The rate of immigration was raising concerns over issues of integration and compliance with minimum wage and working conditions. Some blame immigration for pushing up rents, causing overcrowding on public transport and for erosion of cultural values.

    Imagine that! Same things that we see happening here, and more!

    Ted gives the Secret Service the finger.

    Nugent should have chosen his words more carefully, sure. But what he said was a lot tamer than what many moonbat Democrats have been saying and I don’t see Nugent putting out any bounties on any Democrats.

    Moonbats lower standards again. Note how they pitch it as doing the opposite:

    Officials with the Los Angeles Unified School District were considering a plan on Wednesday that would require all students to take advanced courses and earn at least a “C” in order to graduate.

    But catch these last bits:

    With these changes, the district would no longer require the currently mandated health and applied technology courses.
    To help students meet the tougher new standards, the district is proposing to shrink the graduation requirement from 230 to 170 units and making electives optional, according to the Los Angeles Daily News. This would allow students to repeat classes or get tutoring during the school day.

    Panetta breaking ranks with the moonbats. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta offered a blunt assessment of the threats facing the United States on Wednesday, saying the potential for another war breaking out remains high in places like North Korea.

    “We’re within an inch of war almost every day in that part of the world,” Panetta said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer, in response to a question about the threats in the Korean Peninsula. “And we just have to be very careful about what we say and what we do.”

    So I guess that Obama policy of talking to our bitter enemies isn’t working so good after all?

    “Unfortunately, these days there’s a helluva lot that keeps me awake,” Panetta responded, listing Iran, Syria, the Middle East, cyber warfare and weapons of mass destruction as other insomnia-inducing issues.

    Gee, imagine if Bush had scolded the media for all they did like this during his time in office.

    Teacher deletes ‘God’ from ‘We are the World’ lyrics. Fire her.

    Mandatory ‘Big Brother’ Black Boxes In All New Cars. A bill already passed by the Senate and set to be rubber stamped by the House would make it mandatory for all new cars in the United States to be fitted with black box data recorders from 2015 onwards.

    If it’s just a data recorder and can only be accessed by the government after an accident that’s one thing. If they are going to start using it to come after people for a variety of things even though they have an accident free record, that’s another.

    I agree that we need to ensure this does not happen.

    Thanks, troll. Let’s examine what Nugent actually said, shall we?

    Nugent referred to what he called Obama’s “evil, America-hating administration” and urged NRA members to “to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November.”
    Nugent also said if Obama were re-elected, “I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.”

    Now I acknowledge that US Public Schools aren’t very good (and are getting worse), but do you actually think that “ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November” should be considered a literal threat? The man is talking to the National Rifle Association. If he were talking about a literal battle, what do you suggest that these “warriors” would be riding on, and why in God’s Green Earth would NRA members chop off heads when firearms offer a much cleaner, quicker, more effective alternative? Is the Nuge actually suggesting that NRA members must go get a bladed weapon and a trusty steed….and where, pray tell, is this epic battle going to take place. I live in the western US. How many weeks must I ride to get to the field of battle? I know that Washington DC has some of the strictest regulations on firearms, so is Uncle Ted suggesting a Samari Sword for that reason?

    And here I thought one of the major problems with liberals is that they have no sense of humor.

    In the article you claim that oil companies get subsidies. A subsidy is where the government actually sends taxpayer money to a company, don’t you? Oil companies don’t actually get any taxpayer money, aka a subsidy. They are able to deduct some expenses, just like every other company does. As a result, their tax bill is smaller and they get to keep some more of the profit they make. But they don’t actually get a subsidy, as in “Solyndria.”

    If you think they receive a subsidy, please provide some details. Otherwise, you are no more correct than MoveOn.org.

    john is going to become my second favorite target. So your opinion of nk is the same as dear reader (who likely thinks North Korea is in Australia, where they speak Australian), the “tiny country” defense.
    Lets break down nk for a sec. Communist country with dictatorial government. Supports pirate activity in the region (bit misleading as the pirates are actually in uniform in many cases). Desperately seeking (and very likely possesses) nukes. Has achieved launch vehicle for intercontinental missiles (“failed” launches were actually successful missile tests). Best buddies of the country are other insane regimes around world (Iran, Venezuela).
    25% or so of nk GNP is directly used in military (tanks, planes, etc) and this is not because they are cool to look at in a parade. And the military they are building is of the invasion type. Heavy on tanks, planes, artillery. Very few fixed bases. This generally is a recipe for potential invasion armies.
    But they are tiny, right? I predict nk either ignores the DMZ and tries to take South Korea territory or openly has war with sk within 2 years (we are not currently able to stop it with liberal mandated defense cuts in place).
    The scary thought is not the guy with 1000 nukes, it is the guy with one nuke (and a burning desire to use it).
    Oh and the big finish:
    It is not our capability to create a solid glass parking lot that I question. It is the capability of those in charge to use that capability I question. Liberals and democrats (redundant, I know) have no cahones (except when an attack will distract from domestic issues {Lewinsky, congressional ethics case, etc}).

    Oh yeah, forgot empirical data.
    nk pop ~25 million
    US pop -300 million
    nk military ~1.2 million
    US military ~1.4 million
    nk % in military ~5%
    US % in military ~.4%
    Seems like they have more soldiers per 1000 people than we do. And they do not have a leadership adverse to using them in the correct manner.

    No Savings Are Found From Welfare Drug Tests

    Ushered in amid promises that it would save taxpayers money and deter drug users, a Florida law requiring drug tests for people who seek welfare benefits resulted in no direct savings, snared few drug users and had no effect on the number of applications, according to recently released state data.

    The Florida civil liberties group sued the state last year, arguing that the law constituted an “unreasonable search” by the government, a violation of the Fourth Amendment. In issuing a temporary injunction in October, Judge Mary S. Scriven of Federal District Court scolded lawmakers and said the law “appears likely to be deemed a constitutional infringement.”

    Because the Florida law requires that applicants who pass the test be reimbursed for the cost, an average of $30, the cost to the state was $118,140. This is more than would have been paid out in benefits to the people who failed the test, Mr. Newton said.

    As a result, the testing cost the government an extra $45,780, he said.

  • 4th Estate

    Obama’s response to the pup in the poster: (tough).

  • SR
  • AC

    From lao’s linked article:

    From July through October in Florida — the four months when testing took place before Judge Scriven’s order — 2.6 percent of the state’s cash assistance applicants failed the drug test, or 108 of 4,086, according to the figures from the state obtained by the group. The most common reason was marijuana use. An additional 40 people canceled the tests without taking them.

    Because the Florida law requires that applicants who pass the test be reimbursed for the cost, an average of $30, the cost to the state was $118,140. This is more than would have been paid out in benefits to the people who failed the test, Mr. Newton said.

    108 confirmed dopers drawing the state average of $139.55 per month in food stamp benefits cost the state $15,071.40 per month. The payback period for saving $118,140.00 at $15,071.40 per month is 7.8 months.

    There is currently no limit on the duration an individual may draw food stamp benefits. As a consequence, many food stamp recipients use the program as an almost perpetual source of assistance.

    Even if we assume that half of the dopers would only be on assistance for a six month temporary period, it wouldn’t require too many perpetual benefit recipients to push the average above the 7.8 month payback period. Since drug addiction is positively correlated to long-term institutionalized poverty, it is reasonable to assume that drug addicts will draw benefits for a far longer duration than a sober individual using the benefits as temporary assistance to make it from one job to the next.

    This calculation does not incorporate unquantified savings from dopers who never applied due to knowledge they could never pass. A 2.6% failure rate is far below the drug use rate in any demographic group, indicating that substantial numbers of dopers were discouraged from applying for benefits.

    This calculation also does not incorporate the intangible savings to Medicaid and criminal justice resources from former dopers who gave up use of hard drugs to pass the test.

    This calculation also does not incorporate the intangible benefit of society not rewarding or enabling drug use by welfare recipients at the expense of honest taxpayers.

    The NYT’s conclusion about this not saving money is simply incorrect.

    lao, are any of my conclusions incorrect? Do you want to admit that the NYT is wrong about this program not saving money?

    There are important things to share, it’s just that some people are too busy spouting nonsense.

    By the way, here in CA you can get a lifetime of disability payments by proving you’re a meth addict. I guess the logic is that if they PAY for your meth then you won’t turn to crime to obtain it. Only problem with that is that by the middle of every month the money the addicts got is gone so they turn to crime to supply their habit for the rest of the month.

    People who get food stamps will use their available cash to buy those things not covered by food stamps, such as beer, cigarettes, lobster, etc. The drug test requirement likely goes a long way to make sure that a certain segment of the population is less likely to use their available cash to buy drugs.

    Man Jailed For Child Support For Baby That Wasn’t His

    What I can’t believe is that they actually took action against him without any proof that he was the father other than some tramp who, apparently, played the role of a flower attracting multiple insects to pollinate her and then wound up accusing the wrong one when she turned up pregnant. I wonder if there’s a back story – if he’s not the only one she accused, if he’s not the only one that wound up with a $50,000 debt without actually being the father, if he’s not the only one who wound up in jail.

    Lesson to him and other men: Either don’t go out with sluts or, if you must, wear a condom.

    A look at St. Skittles’ future, had he not been stopped.

    The 52-year-old homeowner was at the residence, with his adult son, when he heard a knock on the door and saw three young people he did not recognize. When the homeowner did not answer the door the three “teenage looking” suspects went around to the back and began beating on a door there.

    The homeowner, who at some point apparently armed himself, called 911 and was on the phone with an emergency dispatcher while the suspects attempted to make entry into the house. After several attempts the back door was kicked in and the homeowner opened fire. One of the suspects was hit in the head and died at the scene. That teenager was later identified as 14 year old Luis Avila. The two other suspects, ages 13 and 14, ran after the shot was fired, but were both captured after about half an hour.

    MOONBAT PROPAGANDA CLAIMS EASILY DEBUNKED AGAIN!

    It has become an article of faith among some policy makers and advocates, including Michelle Obama, that poor urban neighborhoods are food deserts, bereft of fresh fruits and vegetables. But two new studies have found something unexpected. Such neighborhoods not only have more fast food restaurants and convenience stores than more affluent ones, but more grocery stores, supermarkets and full-service restaurants, too. And there is no relationship between the type of food being sold in a neighborhood and obesity among its children and adolescents.

    Within a couple of miles of almost any urban neighborhood, “you can get basically any type of food,” said Roland Sturm of the RAND Corporation, lead author of one of the studies. “Maybe we should call it a food swamp rather than a desert,” he said.

    It was pretty obvious that claiming that obesity was caused by a lack of available food was really, really stupid. What do you expect when people elect charismatic idiot moonbats.

According to police, her ‘fellow actors’ warned her mother they would force her daughter to take part in pornography films if their demands were not met. She was strangled to death, beheaded, and her body was dumped at two different sites as her killers made their way back to Mumbai. Her torso was dumped in a water tank and her head thrown out of the bus window in a bag on the road to Mumbai.

    Enormous great white shark hauled up by Sea of Cortez fishermen Two commercial fishermen in Mexico received the surprise of a lifetime Sunday when they hauled up a great white shark measuring nearly 20 feet and weighing about 2,000 pounds, according to local news reports. The rare catch of such a large white shark — at 20 feet it’d be among the longest ever recorded — was made in Mexico’s Sea of Cortez near Guaymas, by fishermen who thought they had merely scored a large haul of much smaller fish as they hoisted up their net.

    Four people were arrested and charged with – get this – stealing golf balls out of ponds! When I was a kid, about 6 or 7 years old, we used to scour the sagebrush for the balls golfers would hook or slice into areas they were not willing to traverse. At a quarter each, we made great pocket change but we were regularly chased by the golf course staff, who never caught us, because we were “taking business away from the pro shop”, apparently. We never, ever sold balls to golfers BEFORE they were in the pro shop, but I suppose if they got half way through the course and ran out of balls they would have had to go back and buy more.

    Just to be contrary.
    Is it against the law in Colombia to hire a hooker?
    If the answer is no than what is the big deal? Hooker was not paid what she wanted, there was a (police assisted) negotiation, she settled on a payment for services rendered.
    A little embarrassment for those involved and their supervisors. Other than an anonymous phone call to wives, girlfriends, and mothers (just for the humor in it), nothing else need be done (unless the hookers were undercover agents). It seems the agents paid with their own money, not mine, so they should be able to do as they wish.
    Why is this a bigger deal than Fast and Furious? Why does this outrank congressional ethics scandals? Why does this story trump the others and get bammy angry?

    Cops remain at home of Men At Work star Greg Ham who was found dead in Melbourne Police said there were a number of “unexplained issues” with the 58-year-old’s death, which had last night left Australia’s music industry in shock.

    You don’t need to apologize. I’ve made similar mistakes and even when I was clearly quoting someone else (April 18, 2012 at 10:41 pm Panetta breaking ranks with moonbats), as you did, “John” (April 18, 2012 at 11:38 pm) falsely accused me of saying what HE said.

    Apparently Panetta is worried about Iran and North Korea (and possibly others) getting full WMD capabilities and though the article doesn’t say this, I am guessing he may be advocating taking action against them to prevent this. Remind you of anyone/anything?

    Moonbats promoting the fiction that Obama is leading Romney even as they are forced to admit the truth. Voters give the Republican a major edge on such key issues as the economy, jobs and gas prices. Romney is viewed as better on a number of pocketbook issues that both sides agree could be critical come November. Voters disapprove of Mr. Obama’s handling on the economy by 56 percent to 38 percent.

    Who was it that said, “It’s the economy, stupid!”?

    “Republican Romney seems to hold an edge on the economy — the top issue of the campaign — and holds his own against the incumbent on being a strong leader,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.

    Apparently they claim Obama has a 10 point lead among women, which, if the Democrats keep up their “war on women”, is sure to vanish.

    This helps explain some of the disgust from the left on the travy thing. They just hate people that deal with the issue at the time. They must have government (teachers) involved. When I was in high school there was a kid (fairly well known to be a perv) who grabbed some girls ass, her bf dropped him right there, never happened again. If libs had been in charge he would have had counseling, she would have had counseling and the bf would have been expelled.

    OBAMANOMICS – well, I finally found one group of potential voters who have Obama and the Democrats to thank for their good fortune:

    GUN AND AMMO DEALERS!

    Gun sales skyrocket during Obama years
    Gun sales are up 66 percent, according to a new study.
    Some in the industry attribute the jump in sales to fears the Obama administration will tighten gun control laws in a possible
    second term.
    “There’s a concern that in the second term the Obama administration would lead an attempt to restrict gun ownership,”Mr.
    Keane said.
    That concern, known in the industry as “the Obama factor,” has led many gun owners to purchase now in hopes of avoiding more restrictions and regulations later. “Some people jokingly refer to [President Obama] as the salesman of the year for the industry,”Mr. Keane said.

    Feinstein interfering in legislative process. Sen. Dianne Feinstein is trying to block votes on bills that would require a state to honor concealed gun permits from other states.

    Feinstein is trying to ensure they never even get a vote.

    DEM. REP. FAVORING CIVILITY CALLS ROMNEY D-BAG

  • Bob Roberts

    NOTE: It appears that the Democrat in the above story may have “called” Romney that in a second hand sense, by re-tweeting or some such. The story isn’t that clear. The opening line states:

    “…promoted a filthy message of derision from one hate-filled Twitter user.”

    A retweet is a form of endorsement, sure, as a troll post here, like it or not, is essentially an expression of one’s opinion even if one claims they haven’t in fact expressed their own opinion, as we all know.

    Absolutely. A main reason why good people suffer and die unnecessarily is that liberals/moonbats/Democrats say “Let the police handle it” and they don’t.

    I have a couple crazy neighbors – hard to say which one is crazier – but I’ve already let the police and courts know one of them is about a second from getting shot (Not by me!) if he doesn’t stop hassling all of us peace-loving, friendly neighbors. Seriously, the person he hassles the most has a firearm and has already stated next time this nutjob trespasses that he’s going to get blown away.

    I could not say one way or the other whether or not oil companies get subsidies. My main point in my post was not to single out an industry for getting subsidies, but demand all subsidies be stopped. Government should not be deciding what business succeed or fail.

    You’re probably right. The left usually use the wrong labels when discussing economics so that their argument seems stronger. Afterall, slowing down increase in spending is a “budget cut.”

    President Barack Obama can’t count on as much global euphoria as he gears up for a fierce reelection campaign, a new survey found Thursday.

    Obama’s popularity abroad on the wane, survey finds

    The report card was particularly dire from Serbia and Iran where approval ratings for the White House were below 10 percent. India, Cyprus, Belarus and Egypt also gave the Obama administration less than stellar marks.
    Overall, median approval ratings for Washington’s leadership across 136 countries stood at 46 percent in 2011.

    Argentina seizes gas firm owned by Repsol

    Facing intense criticism over the nationalization of its biggest oil firm, Argentina on Thursday ordered the seizure of YPF Gas, another group controlled by Spain’s Repsol, a move expected to further inflame tensions.
    In a case that has sparked fears of a new wave of expropriations, a statement published in the official gazette said the Argentine government was declaring YPF Gas a public utility and taking 51 percent of the shares.
    YPF Gas is not technically part of the YPF oil group ordered nationalized this week, leading to global condemnation, but a separate company.
    However, an 85 percent stake in the gas firm is owned by Repsol Butano SA, a division of the Spanish energy giant.
    Officials said the move was an extension of the takeover of YPF, the big unit of Repsol that Argentina decided to seize this week.
    The government statement indicates that YPF Gas “plays an essential role in Argentina’s hydrocarbon policy.”
    YPF Gas is the main provider of fuel tanks that are supplied to low-income households in the South American nation that are not on the gas network, officials said.
    The move expands the nationalization effort ordered by Argentina, which claimed the Spanish firm was failing to invest in the country and forcing it to import more of its energy supplies.

    Award-winning Musician Levon Helm Dies, 71 Helm, whose birth name was actually Mark Lavon Helm, gained popularity in the 1960s as a member of The Band (alongside Bob Dylan and various other talented performers) lending his soulful voice and unique, upbeat drumming style to hit songs “The Weight”, “Then Night They Drove Old Dixie Down, and “Ophelia,” among others.
