December 31, 2014, 1:02 amSomething to think about

Consider the following...

Sydney, Australia, Monday morning, 15 Dec:  A guy walks into a cafe with a shotgun.  16 plus hour standoff, with hundreds of police, begins.  Area businesses shut down for a day, thousands of dollars in lost revenue.  Thousands of dollars spent on police effort.  News media around the world spending millions of dollars covering the siege.  Other nations monitoring the situation, ready to give aid to Australian government, if needed.  Police finally take action.  Bad guy dead, 2 citizens dead, 4 citizens wounded.

Compare that to...

Las Cruces, NM, Sunday evening, 14 Dec (virtually the same time):  A guy walks into a "Smoke Shop" with a shotgun.  Store clerk is armed with a 9mm.  In less then a minute, bad guy is dead.  Police called to process the scene and take a report.  Area businesses parking slightly inconvienenced because of cop cars.  Area TV news media has a 20 second blurb on the evening news and the area news paper has a small article the next day. Prosecutor reportedly declines to press charges.

Food for thought...

December 16, 2014, 11:19 pmWhite privilege?

There's some blog posts here about white privilege.

Interesting because a search of 'black organizations' in D.C. alone produces many hits.

If whites tried to form any organizations with white in the title where these black organizations have black in the title they'd be accused of hate speech.

United Black Fund.....

United White Fund....... can't have that, it would be 'racist'

etc...etc...ad nauseam.

So who is privileged?

December 8, 2014, 11:24 pmCatholic Confessional Box

THIS IS FOR ALL THE GOOD CATHOLICS...

I went into the Confessional Box after years of being away from the Church.

Inside I found a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap. On one wall, there's a row of decanters with fine Jameson Irish whiskey and Waterford crystal glasses. On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates.

Then the priest comes in.

I say to him, "Father, forgive me, for it's been a very long time since I've been to confession, but I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be.

He replies: " Get out... you're on my side!"

December 8, 2014, 11:22 pmStill all for obama's imigration plan for illegals?

California....LARGEST INSANE ASYLUM IN THE WORLD

Interesting that the LA times did this.  Lou Dobbs reported this on CNN and it cost him his job.  The only network we would see this on would be FOX.  All the others are staying away from it.  Whether you are a Democrat or Republican this should be of great interest to you! Just One State - be sure and read the last part......try for 3 times. This is only one State.................If this doesn't open eyes, nothing will!

From the L.A. Times.

1.  40% of all workers in L.A. County ( L.A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes.  This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.

2.  95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.

3.  75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.

4.  Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.

5.  Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.

6.  Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.

7.  The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.

8  Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.

9. 21 radio stations in L.A.  are Spanish speaking.

10.  In L.A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.  (There are 10.2 million people in L.A. County.)

(All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times)

Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare.  Over 70% of the United States 'annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York ) results from immigration.  29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

December 5, 2014, 7:27 pmA fitting monument to this Presidency

North Dakota Names Landfill After Obama

The state of North Dakota has named a new publicly-owned landfill after President Barack Obama.

In an overwhelming 35-10 vote, the state Senate advanced a bill naming a 650-acre site currently under construction after the nations 44th president. Governor Jack Dalrymple is expected to sign the measure into law Tuesday.

When completed, the Barack Obama Memorial Landfill will be the largest waste disposal site in North Dakota, and the 17th largest in the United States. It will be especially rich in toxic waste from the local petroleum and medical industries.

We wanted to do something to honor the president, says Republican State Senator Doug Perlman, who was the lead sponsor of the bill. And I think a pile of garbage is a fitting tribute to Obamas presidency.

We originally planned on naming it after a nearby mountain. But then someone jokingly suggested we name it after Obama. I never thought and idea like that would actually pass. But I was pleasantly surprised.

The president is hardly popular in North Dakota. The most recent poll in December 2013 found that Obama has a 35% approval rating in the state, although that figure may have fallen further in the year since. Yet even considering the political climate, seasoned observers are surprised  that two Democratic lawmakers voted for the bills passage.

Five Horses Is Her Name

A man asked an American Indian what was his wife's name.

He replied, "She is called Five Horses".

The man said, "That's an unusual name for a wife. What does it mean?"

The Old Indian answered," It is an old Indian name. It means ...."

"NAG, NAG, NAG, NAG, NAG!"

December 2, 2014, 6:58 pmLiberal media run amok

Re: the man killed by a hammer, on the news today a St Louis police official said "He wasn't killed because he was Bosnian".

This is a ridiculously slanted and biased comment. Everyone in the country, black and white, know that he was killed because he was white but the media won't touch it.

As one reporter said, do you think the media is going to give this a few weeks attention?

December 1, 2014, 11:59 amMan beaten to death with hammers in St. Louis, police say

(CNN) -- Two juveniles are in custody Sunday, suspected in the death of a man beaten with hammers on a St. Louis street.

The victim, 32-year-old Zemir Begic, suffered injuries to his head, abdomen, face and mouth, according to police.

He was unconscious by the time officers arrived. Begic was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead, police said.

"Investigation revealed the victim was traveling in his vehicle when several juveniles approached his vehicle on foot and began damaging it.

"The victim exited his vehicle and the juveniles began yelling at the victim and striking him with hammers. After the assault, the juveniles fled the scene on foot," read an incident report.

Two suspects were later located and taken into custody, police said. They are 15 and 16.

A motive for the attack was not immediately clear. An investigation is ongoing.

__________________________________________________________________

Typical CNN spin at the end, 'motive for the attack not immediately clear.'

Call me racist and the article does not specify race, but given the close dates of Ferguson and this incident in St. Louis, I am thinking that the perpetrators were black and the victim obviously white. I am willing to bet that no charges of a "hate crime will be lodged and I am also willing to bet that no whites will burn down the town or loot the liquor stores.

November 23, 2014, 4:54 pmThe true difference between chuicken salad and chicken s**

The true difference between Chicken Salad and Chicken <snip>

If this does not speak to the character of each individual, then nothing does !!

Chicken Salad

President George W. Bush's Speech after the capture of Saddam Hussein

"The success of yesterday's mission is a tribute to our men and women now serving in Iraq . The operation was based on the superb work of intelligence analysts who found the dictator's' footprints in a vast country. The operation was carried out with skill and precision by a brave
fighting force. Our servicemen and women and our coalition allies have faced many dangers in the hunt for members of the fallen regime, and in their effort to bring hope and freedom to the Iraqi people. Their work continues, and so do the risks. Today, on behalf of the nation,

I thank the members of our Armed Forces and I congratulate them!"

Chicken <snip>

Barrack Hussein Obama's Speech after the killing of Osama bin Laden

"And so shortly after taking office,   I  directed Leon Panetta, the Director of the CIA, to make the killing or capture of bin Laden the top priority of our war against al Qaeda, even as we continued our broader efforts to disrupt, dismantle, and defeat his network. Then, last August, I   was briefed on a possible lead to bin Laden. It was far from certain, and it took many months to run this thread to ground.   I met repeatedly with my national security team as we developed more information about the possibility that we had located bin Laden hiding within a compound deep inside of Pakistan. And finally, last week, I determined that  we had enough ntelligence to take action, and  I authorized an operation to get Osama bin Laden and bring him to justice. Today, at my direction, the United States launched a targeted operation against that compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan."

Obama did not once acknowledge our brave men and women who fight for our country.

And that, my friends, is chicken <snip>!

November 17, 2014, 6:53 pmArgueville

Vernon Howard's
SECRETS OF LIFE (R)

**********************************************************************

"There was once a town named Argueville. All day long everyone
angrily argued with everyone else. No one liked living in
Argueville. In the center of town was a booth occupied by a
man called the Director. He was not a resident of the town but
came to the booth daily. His purpose was to give directions to
people who wanted to leave Argueville but did not know how.
However, when he supplied directions to a man or a woman they
argued that he was wrong and accused him of deceiving them.

The Director's only reply to the arguers was, 'You may use my
directions or you may use your own.' Arguing that they knew what
was right, the arguers left, but wearily returned a few hours
later, unable to find the way out of town.

But every once in awhile a man or woman who had previously argued
with the Director came back to him with different attitudes. Each
told him, 'I have run out of arguments. Please give me the right
directions which I will follow.' These people with the right
attitudes soon found their way out of awful Argueville.

We can argue or we can learn. We can't do both. Arguing is an
insecure person's substitute for knowing. Truth, the Great
Director, is patient. When we run out of arguments we will
find the way out."

Be Safe In A Dangerous World, p. 19
