    I’m sure you’ve all noted that Utah is on the verge of taking back State land from the Feds:

    Alaska is right behind Utah. The Federal bastards lay claim to 69.1% of Alaska lands – only Nevada has had more taken. Support your local chapter of ‘evict the feds’.

    People are such wussies today. Something we would have laughed at 6 months ago is now a topic of outrage.

    What is this offensive topic? The washing label on a pair of trousers that contained a joke.

    This is not the first time this has been done. As far as I know, it is the first time people have gotten upset, or at least this upset.

    Drug cartels throw grenade fight outside Walmart

    The article’s wording is not clear; the deceased gangster is a plaza boss, not the cartel boss.

    Comrade Chairman’s apparatchiks will probably trace the grenades back to an American gun shop run by counter-Obamunist kulak saboteurs.

    The Great Slut Controversy

    In “Fluke, Flake, Fraud–or All Three?” I laid out the case that 30 year old Georgetown Law student Sandra Fluke was, by definition, both a slut and a prostitute as Rush Limbaugh alleged last week.

    Limbaugh’s scathing terminology was unfortunate and he later apologized but Ms. Fluke, revelling in the limelight she purposefully created, rejected his mea culpa.

    Ms. Fluke’s admission that birth control is costing her an exorbitant thousand dollars annually testifies to her sluttish promiscuity. Her demands that others pay for her to have sex without consequences satisfy the definition of a prostitute, although that description is more tenuous.

    In contemporary parlance and in view of today’s loose sexual mores, Ms. Fluke may not technically be a slut and Limbaugh was clearly wrong in applying the word to her since the slut word would then be applicable to at least half the population of college and university students, and we can’t have that!

    Rush’s gross indiscretion doesn’t seem to have bothered Sandra very much.

    She has expressed righteous indignation in various venues and wasn’t harmed in a legal sense by the epithet. House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer wants her to sue Limbaugh: “I’d like to see her take him to court. She is not a public figure and, for that reason, she should be able to sue for slander, libel or whatever else might be involved.”

    There are two problems with that line of thinking. First, the 30 year old law student defamed herself by going public about her personal life and her obviously voracious sexual drive and, second, she is indeed an activist “public figure” who has served as a former president of Law Students for Reproductive Justice and vice president of the Women’s Legal Alliance.

    In any lawsuit, Ms. Fluke would have to prove both that she is not slutty and that she sustained damages as a result of Limbaugh’s invective. If anything, she has gained worshipful notoriety over the last week and the trial would devolve into a media circus.

    In any event, Ms. Fluke has already won the battle of the Great Slut Controversy. . . (Read more at

    Tomorrow, such acts as home schooling, teaching your kids that God views homosexuality as an abomination, or letting your kids eat Doritos may be enough for the state to act.

    John McCain thinks it would be a great idea to bomb Syria.

    Like there aren’t enough people in the middle East whom we don’t hate and despise yet.

    And with good reason.

    That said, bombing Syria to replace the present dictator with more moslem brotherhood types is more than counter-productive.

    McAnus needs to take a drug test to determine if he is still fit for office.

    I’m always a day late with these stories, but this one is especially horrendous:

    Black kids threw gasoline on a 13-year old boy and set him on fire.

    Throwing gasoline on someone and lighting it goes way beyond racism, a personal argument, naivete or any other complaint those blacks had concerning a white 13-year old.

    No excuses. That is just pure, unadulterated evil.

    Evil like that derives from a hate war that has been waged against whites for generations.

    (I also notice that this story disappeared rather quickly from MSM reports)

    Apparently chanting USA USA USA after a victory of a American high school basketball team over another American high School basketball team is now racist.

    I am now positive that somehow I was pulled into an alternate reality where everything is the complete opposite of what is correct,righteous and truthful. In other words Bizarro World.

    So typical!

    As a bookkeeper, I have prepared a lot of payrolls. There has only been one occasion when someone took advantage of the “Welfare To Work” credit – and it was a disaster.

    One of my clients hired a guy who had formerly been in prison. The guy was very nice and a good worker; but, he didn’t stay very long and but before he left, he got injured, which cost the company a substantial amount in workers’ compensation premiums. In addition, I had to call or fax his parole officer every week. When the company went to take the credit, the tax preparer charged them extra to prepare the additional forms required.

    Gov’mnt! 🙄

    “It is much better, in my opinion, to be scared, to be frightened, and even if you have to be, to be injured, but to walk away and survive. You’ll heal, and you can replace whatever was taken away.”

    Good for Pat Robertson! People often mock him, but from what I’ve seen, he really does stick to the Bible. I have always felt that he is speaking God’s word when I have watched him.

  27. StanInTexas says:

    AC, the news is filled with stories of ordinary citizens who are confronted by criminals, comply fully with their demands, and are then killed anyway.

    And the part of the story you did not include is that the Deputy Mayor of DC has taxpayer-funded ARMED SECURITY assigned to him.

    These G-F-W disgust me. I hope he gets to experience the Raspberry Effect™!

    German and Japanese intelligence sources Monday, March 5, confirmed – and qualified – to debkafile reports in the German Der Spiegel and Welt am Sonntag that Western intelligence had known for 11 months that at least one of North Korea’s covert nuclear tests in 2010 was carried out on an Iranian radioactive bomb or nuclear warhead.

    The arrest of six “LulzSec” members was already mentioned here. There was a critical point that was overlooked by many:

    “Known in hacking circles as ‘Sabu’, the alleged informant, 28-year-old Hector Xavier Monsegur, who lived in and worked from a public-housing project in New York City”

    One of the side-effects of socialism and giving people who are not contributing to society ample spare time is illustrated here. Some of them turn bad.

    If this loser had to support himself, if he had to work for a living, would he have had the time to do so much damage?

    Advertisers Who Dumped Rush

    “The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” (Edmund Burke) gleefully and triumphantly posted a report that sponsors are bailing out in droves on conservative icon Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio show in a kneejerk reaction to the predictable, leftist reaction to the Great Slut Controversy regarding liberal activist, Sandra Fluke.

    Yesterday, Politico gleefully listed the following bailers: AccuQuote Life Insurance, Allstate Insurance, AOL, Bare Escentuals, Bethesda Sedation Dentistry, Bonobos, Carbonite, Cascades Dental, Citrix, Girl Scouts, Goodwill Industries, Hadeed Carpet, JCPenney, Legal Zoom, Matrix Direct, Philadelphia Orchestra, PolyCom, ProFlowers, Quicken Loans, Reputation Rhino, Sears, Sensa, Service Magic, Sleep Train, Sleep Number, St. Vincent’s Medical Center, Tax Resolution, Thompson Creek Windows and Vitacost.

    I can’t vouch for Politico’s accuracy since that website has been in President Barack Hussein Obama’s vest pocket for years. The whole slut controversy has been concocted to destroy Limbaugh and to absurdly paint conservatives as anti-woman to lock up their votes for Obama in November.

    As with every conservative I know, I love the fair sex.

    A more reliable listing of companies and organizations which have succumbed to misguided political correctness out of pusillanimous fear of Obama’s wrath: Sleep Number, The Sleep Train, Quicken Loans, Legal Zoom, Citrix, Carbonite, ProFlowers, Tax Resolution, AOL, Bonobos, Sears, and Allstate Insurance.
