    Global Warming Can Be Slowed By Working Less – of course the unions would still demand more and more pay for less and less work!

    A worldwide switch to a “more European” work schedule, which includes working fewer hours and more vacation time, could prevent as much as half of the expected global temperature rise by 2100, according to the analysis, which used a 2012 study that found shorter work hours could be associated with lower carbon emissions. NONSENSE!

    I don’t know about you, but I use my car more when I’m NOT working than when I’m working.

    Angry Dallas Neighbor Allegedly Kills 2 Over Dog Poop

    While police haven’t identified the victims yet, neighbors say they include a Dallas man and his girlfriend, who’s the mother of five young children, ranging from 10 years in age, to a baby born just after Christmas.

    Police believe the shooting was the result of an ongoing dispute between the couple and their accused shooter, an elderly man who lived upstairs from them.

    Neighbors say the feud had been going on for nearly a year, and centered on a Pit Bull that lived in the couple’s unit. Neighbors say the problem was the dog went to the bathroom on the balcony, which often dripped downstairs onto the suspect’s balcony.

    Residents tell us noise was also a problem.

    In Chicago, when seconds count the police will be even more minutes away, DELIBERATELY!

    They say “when the suspect is no longer on the scene”, but how will they really know he/she is gone?

    More of that liberal “civility” we’ve been hearing about!

    Paul Guaschino was driving Friday when a fellow motorist spotted an “Impeach Obama” bumper sticker on the 62-year-old Connecticut resident’s vehicle.

    According to cops, the other driver apparently did not appreciate the bumper sticker and “displayed his dislike by showing his middle finger.”

    Donald Trump is suing HBO’s Bill Maher for the $5 million the comedian offered to the real estate mogul if he proved that he wasn’t the product of his mother having sex with an orangutan.

    Donald Trump today filed a lawsuit against talk show host Bill Maher for the $5 million dollars he committed to pay Mr. Trump for charity while being interviewed on the Jay Leno Show.

    Yet another Obama administration fail

    And the take home lesson is don’t vacation in Peru.

    I thought moonbats were against preemptive strikes!

    A secret legal review into the new guidelines has already decided that President Barack Obama has the power to order such pre-emptive strikes if faced with credible evidence of a looming attack, according to the New York Times, which quoted unnamed officials involved in the review.

    Why haven’t they banned ALL knives in NYC yet?

    Three people were stabbed Monday on the Parsons Boulevard and Archer Avenue subway platform in Queens.

    “No law or set of laws can keep our children completely safe” Obama said

    And yet he continues to call for more anti Second Amendment laws!

    Suffocating smog from China reaches regions of Japan

    “China is our neighbor and all sorts of problems happen between us all the time,” Takaharu Abiko, 50, said. “It is very worrying. This is dangerous pollution, like poison, and we can’t protect ourselves. It’s scary.”

    Why didn’t she “just say no”?

    A Dallas woman has filed suit against L-A Fitness for comments and exercises her trainers made her do. She says they were sexually suggestive.

    And, of course, as long as it’s Obama doing it, it’s legal!

    Imagine the hue and cry had Bush been the one doing this for some or all of the past four years.

    It’s not (federally) legal to posess or sell, but we can still tax it!

    Apparently they’ll have to at least decriminalize it, and perhaps fully legalize it, first.

    Polis’ measure would regulate marijuana the way the federal government handles alcohol: In states that legalize pot, growers would have to obtain a federal permit. Oversight of marijuana would be removed from the Drug Enforcement Administration and given to the newly renamed Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Marijuana and Firearms, and it would remain illegal to bring marijuana from a state where it’s legal to one where it isn’t.
    The bill is based on a legalization measure previously pushed by former Reps. Barney Frank of Massachusetts and Ron Paul of Texas.

    The above is the Huffblo version. I had the feeling something was fishy so I looked around a little more.

    And lo and behold:

    Saudi preacher spared after raping, killing daughter

    And this is Google, mind you.

    Remember folks, islam is love. And they’ll kill you if you dare say anything else!

    This islamic PIG needs to be brought to the Hague. Isn’t that what liberals always want to do to any politician they don’t like?

    But this SWINE rapes his 5yo daughter and libs do not report it. Why do they remain silent? Could it be that this might prove embarrassing to their brown god in the White House?

    Chicago murder rate far worse than during Al Capone ‘gangland’ days
    At the end, the moonbat reporter brought up something rather interesting
    He said there were no Federal gun regulations in 1929
    But there was alcohol prohibition, which ironically created Capone.
    So what has changed ?
    Today on the streets of Chitcago alcohol is legal, but guns are essentially banned.
    So what does the moonbat of today blame ?
    Why must these guns travel to Chitcago to “carry out their dastardly deeds” ?
    If gun grabbers were correct, shouldn’t the violence of Chitcago be WORSE everywhere else ?

    Yesterday was the “Day After” the Super Bowl.

    A great body of empirical and anecdotal evidence exists indicating that the Monday after the ‘Bowl is marked by lower-than-normal productivity, due to excessive “water cooler” chatter and a general lack of ambition from overeating, over-imbibing, staying up too late, etc.

    One possible solution is to make the “day after” a national holiday.

    To this, let me add:

    Ronald Reagan’s birthday is Wednesday, and quite frankly I think he deserves a holiday.

    Ronaldus Maximus was also a huge football fan, played the sport as a young man, and also played the ill-fated George Gipp in the movie, “Knute Rockne, All American”.

    We could COMBINE THE TWO, and celebrate this great man’s birthday on a Monday in early February……..which would JUST SO HAPPEN to be the day after the Super Bowl.

    Makes sense to me…….

    “Win One for the Gipper!!!!!”


    BUT – His Imperial Highness President Barack Hussein Obama has signed NO SUCH “Executive Order” making it so……and our legislature is unlikely to act of this until next year at the earliest…….so here we are.

    Petition, anyone?

    Drone attacks on US soil? Drone strikes on American citizens called legal by DOJ.

    Fortunately I have been assured that my AR-15 is capable of shooting down airplanes, so I have nothing to worry about from drone strikes.

    Apparently it can also blow up railroads. This will be of great help when Obama starts sending troops across the country in trains.

  16. Sam Adams says:

    BTW, this is a photo of my AR-15.

    The federal government says this is a firearm, so I guess that is what it is. It might be missing a part or two, but I think it will still be able to shoot down an airplane.

    Speaking of “holidays”…… is National Pancake Day.

    We’re a month early, though – the Feast of St. Pancake, aka Rachel Aliene Corrie is actually 16 March.

    I hear Rachel was a closet Tea Partier – her last words are alleged to have been, “Don’t Tread On Me!!!”

    I guess that joke fell “flat”……sorry…..

    Take time to make a phone call, email or text today to let your voice be heard for one of America’s last organizations to hold on to moral integrity and timeless values for youth:

    Every American who believes in freedom of thought and religious liberty should be outraged by the attacks upon the Boy Scouts, who have had core convictions about
    morality for 100 years. Every Scout takes an oath to keep himself “morally straight.” The Boy Scouts have every right to include sexual conduct in how they define that term. Many of our organizations stood with the Boy Scouts when the Supreme Court of the United
    States upheld their right to maintain their membership standards. To compromise moral principles under political and financial pressure would teach boys cowardice, not courage. Every parent should be concerned about guiding and protecting their own children should also be alarmed by the proposed change to Boy Scout policy. As the Boy Scouts of America (BSA) confirmed as recently as last July, “the vast majority of the parents” of Boy Scouts reserve to themselves the right to introduce and give guidance on sexual topics. In addition, the current policy is part of the BSA’s
    efforts to protect Scouts from sexual abuse. Last year BSA released their so-called “perversion files,” which contained the names of hundreds of sexual predators who had managed to hide their attraction to boys and enter the Boy Scouts. How will parents be able to entrust their children to the Boy Scouts if they trade the well-being of the boys for corporate dollars?

    CALL THE BOY SCOUTS AT 972-580-2000
    Visit for the BSA Board of Directors and other contacts.

    February 4, 2013 – Monday

    You’ve shut down their phones. Now, let’s flood their inboxes.

    Thousands of Americans like you have phoned the Boy Scouts of America’s national office and Board of Directors to tell them not to abandon their longstanding policy against having openly homosexual leaders and Scouts. While you may have reached an endlessly ringing phone (due to the volume of calls the group has been receiving), leaders have no doubt realized that their proposed decision might alienate more than it appeases.

    As the BSA’s board meets this week, join us in continuing to keep the pressure on by sending an email urging the organization not to cave-in to homosexual activists and corporations which have been threatening the organization’s funding.

    Family Research Council and 41 other allied organizations today released a half-page national advertisement in USA Today calling for the Scouts to stand strong. Join your voice with ours in sending a message that the organization should model the conviction it has espoused for over a century – that timeless values really are timeless, and don’t change because of threats from corporations and homosexual activists.

    8,830,026: Americans on Disability Hits New Record for 192nd Straight Month


    The number of American workers collecting federal disability payments climbed to yet another record high of 8,830,026 in January, up from 8,827,795 in December, according to newly released data from the Social Security Administration.

    This is the 192nd straight month that the number of American workers collecting federal disability payments has increased.

    As the overall number of Americans collecting disability has increased, the ratio of full-time workers to disability beneficiaries has decreased.

    In December 1968, 1,295,428 Americans collected disability and 65,630,000 worked full-time. Thus, there were about 51 Americans working full-time for each person collecting disability at that time.

    In January 2013, with a record 8,830,026 Americans collecting disability and 115,918,000 working fulltime, there were only 13 Americans working full-time for each person collecting disability.

    Library Gives Free Pole Dancing Lessons To Help Boost Attendance

    The Mayfield Library of Dalkeith, Modlothian, decided to offer a free pole-dancing course to draw attendance, according to STV Edinburgh.

    Six tourists raped by gunmen in Mexico, authorities say

    Six tourists on vacation in Acapulco were raped by masked gunmen who burst into their lodgings in the middle of the night, roughed up their companions and made off with cash, laptops and other valuables, authorities said.

    The attack early Monday on what was in Mexico a long holiday weekend came as the one-time tourist mecca struggles to salvage its reputation.

    Walton said at least five gunmen entered the rooms where the tourists were sleeping, beat and tied up six men and raped six women. A seventh woman, a Mexican national, was unharmed, he said.

    INSIDE JOB? Was the seventh woman in on it?

    Don’t ask, don’t tell!

    Poland is in the paradoxical situation of being in the line of fire over cooperating with the US antiterrorist crackdown in the wake of the September 2011 al-Qaeda attacks in large measure because it is one of the few US allies to have undertaken any sort of an investigation into what happened.

    As far as I’m concerned, you choose to be a terrorist, you forfeit all your rights at that point.

    “Fat butt Michelle Obama,” said Bob Grisham, a high school football coach who was surreptitiously recorded by one of his students. “Look at her. She looks like she weighs 185 or 190. She’s overweight.”

    Facing discipline for being honest about someone who demands We adhere to standards she won’t follow herself.

    Grisham has been employed by the school system since 1991 and has been head football coach at Lauderdale County High School for the past five years. His team advanced to the state semifinals this past season.

    But because he dissed the Imperial Emporer’s wife, his career may be destroyed along with his life.

    Neurologist discovers ‘dark patch’ inside the brains of killers and rapists

    Reports “rainbow patch” in gay brains (not really!)

    Scans reveal a patch at the front of the brain can be seen in people with records for criminal violence
    German scientist who made the discovery classifies evil in three groups
    He also claims that the defect is genetic, but he has no proof that it’s not an effect, rather than a cause. In other words, a person starts with a normal brain but begins to do evil things and this “dark patch” develops as a result.
    As for the three types:
    The first he classifies as ‘psychologically healthy,’ people who grow up in an environment where it is ‘OK to beat, steal and murder’.
    The second type is the mentally disturbed criminal who looks at his world as threatening.
    ‘A wrong look, one false move, he can explode and become a killer,’ he said.
    Josef Stalin, Adolf Hitler and Barack Obama belong to Dr Roth’s third group – pure psychopaths!

    He also does admit:
    “Not all monsters are born and that many are made worse by their environments on their roads to evil.”

    President Obama’s health care law will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office released Tuesday.

    CBO said that this year’s tax law changes have changed the incentives for businesses and made it less attractive to pay for insurance, meaning fewer will decide to do so. Instead, they’ll choose to pay a penalty to the government, totaling $13 billion in higher fees over the next decade.
    During the health care debate Mr. Obama had said individuals would be able to keep their plans. Apparently not, as expected.
    No doubt this was intentional, pushing more people to take the government option and socialize health care quicker.

    Violent, thieving mobs have been making headlines across the country for the past few years, and now they have hit New York City.

    In New York and across the country, the mobs of kids – 20, 30, 40 or more — appear out of nowhere and suddenly charge a newsstand or convenience store.

    They ransack, steal and wreak havoc with no consideration for customers, such as Bennett, who get in their way.

    “They assemble, they do whatever it is that they’re going to do, and then they disassemble in a matter of minutes,” said Jon Shane, assistant professor of criminal justice at John Jay College. “By the time somebody recognizes what is happening or is injured, if the police are able to respond, it’s slow.”

    “It’s hard to earn a living, and then they come here and destroy everything, and then they leave,” he said. “It’s sad.”

    As quickly as they arrive, the newsstand victims said, the teens are gone — along with thousands of dollars in goods and damages.


    Despite doom and gloom predictions that never came to pass, overpopulation alarmists continue to make their case that society must restrict the procreation of human beings. In 1968, Paul Ehrlich’s book Population Bomb said that hundreds of millions of people would perish as a result of an overpopulated earth.
    The Weekly Standard’s Jonathan V. Last’s new book What to Expect When No One’s Expecting: America’s Coming Demographic Disaster discusses the overpopulation alarmists’ false predictions, their true intentions, and the consequences all of us will pay for the unnecessary panic.

    Ehrlich refused to admit he was wrong years after his initial predictions never happened.

    Undeterred by having his life’s work completely discredited, the octogenarian professor is mad about the perils of overpopulation, even to this day. In 1990, long after his initial thesis was disproved, he doubled down and published The Population Explosion, in which he claimed that overpopulation was more. Dangerous. THAN. EVER!

    The environmentalists have stepped up their game in the population debate, too. A group called Californians for Population Stabilization claims “population growth [is] wildly out of control” and is causing “further degradation of America’s natural treasures.”

    I think they’re talking about the illegal aliens who are burdening our social networks to the breaking points and despoiling our wild places with their illegal pot farms and other such squatters camps, such as the one that was famously located here in our own McGonigle Canyon.

    In the first of several votes required for its passage, the lower house of parliament backed the legislation by 400-175, but more than half of Cameron’s 303 lawmakers voted against or abstained, signaling deep unease with it and his leadership.

    During a debate that lasted more than six hours, many Conservative MPs denounced the legislation, saying it was morally wrong, not a public priority, and unnecessarily divisive, threatening a corrosive legacy of bitterness. Conservative lawmaker Gerald Howarth told parliament that the government had no mandate to push through a “massive social and cultural change”. “This is not evolution, it’s revolution,” added Edward Leigh, another Conservative member of parliament, saying marriage was “by its nature a heterosexual union”.
