If anyone would rather not wade through the political posts, click on “photos“ or “kayaking“ on the sidebar…
Bye the bye, since I don’t self-host this blog, some videos stop working when the link is broken. Do me a favor and add a comment when you encounter “a lost vid” while browsing here, thanks.
I’ve disabled automatic posting of comments. But my approval of comments (by real people) is rapid and my thanks for contributing is very real!
Thanks for your understanding.
COMMENTS! I’ll give you some stinking comments!!!
Update: Recent severe back problems have greatly reduced my ability to get out on the water. Hopefully I’ll get better before Obamacare wreaks the healthcare system.
Update: Tuesday I had a procedure on my back involving an injection into the spine. Today I was able to walk into my pub in a normal fashion and order a beer. I can climb the stairs without the chairlift, but Christ! my legs are weak. Wish me luck on my rehabilitation.
Update: Second spinal procedure, here’s hoping I can toss away the cane. Nothing could raise my spirits more than being able to load the Kayak on top of the car again and getting on the river.
Moreover, the ease of gaining exemption from this policy makes it likely that a significant number of parents will simply opt-out of allowing their kids to be vaccinated, based on the endemic superstition and baseless fear polluting the internet from many less-than-reliable sources.
If that video is too dry, perhaps this video by Anti-Vaccine personality Jenny McCarthy (whom I’ve mentioned before) on the Howard Stern Show.
Jenny Mccarthy Anti-Vaccine Body Count
Compared to her husband, she has more than two brain cells to rub together.
Among the enduring images from Nelson Mandela’s massive memorial service in Johannesburg Tuesday will be one of a jovial President Obama taking a cell phone pic with his seat-mates, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt and Britain’s David Cameron.
As the three of them smile for the camera, a stern-looking Michelle Obama can be seen staring straight ahead, hands clasped. As if to remind anyone who sees this photo years from now that it was, after all, a memorial service for one of the great human rights leaders.
I have no love and mixed respect for the man, but for Christs sake! It’s the man’s funeral!
Police officers in Indiana are upset over a new law allowing residents to use deadly force against public servants, including law enforcement officers, who unlawfully enter their homes. It was signed by Republican Governor Mitch Daniels in March.
Indiana is the first U.S. state to specifically allow force against officers, according to the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys in Washington, which represents and supports prosecutors. The National Rifle Association pushed for the law, saying an unfavorable court decision made the need clear and that it would allow homeowners to defend themselves during a violent, unjustified attack. Police lobbied against it.
He said “public servant” was added to clarify the law after a state Supreme Court ruling last year that “there is no right to reasonably resist unlawful entry by police officers.” The case was based on a man charged with assaulting an officer during a domestic-violence call.
Young cited a hypothetical situation of a homeowner returning to see an officer raping his daughter or wife. Under the court’s ruling, the homeowner could not touch the officer and only file a lawsuit later, he said. Young said he devised the idea for the law after the court ruling.
Hoo-Fucking-Ray And signed by an Republican Governor, naturally. I may have a lot of problems with the GOP, their inept handling of national elections, their weakness when pitted against Obama, etc, etc. But, right now and until they are replaced (not challenged) by something better, they are the only game in town.
At least this time we know what his crime is… trying to walk his child home on foot.
A Tennessee principal put forth an edict that all parents must pick up their children at the school while staying in their cars. This guy walked. His run-in with a fascist pseudo cop, the school deputy
Did you watch the whole video, the school later claimed that the video was “edited” to make the parent look better. I saw no cuts. In my opinion that father has infinitely more patience than I would. Whatever is the world coming too?
Karzai punks Barry
The Obama Regime wanted a agreement that would keep US Forces in Afghanistan for at least the next ten years.
The newly negotiated Bilateral Security Agreement would take effect on January 15, 2015 and run until “the end of 2024 and beyond.” The administration apparently hopes to keep between 8,000 and 15,000 troops on station.
Last Stand – 44th Foot at Gandamak
That number of troops isn’t enough to do anything useful, unless you consider a “Last Stand and Massacre“ useful.
But Obama and his henchmen have been trucking downtown for months to negotiate this agreement and then back again to try to get Karzai to sign it. In the interim, ignoring the trash talk that Karzai has been giving the American Military, Obama’s Regime and the people who put him in power then kept him there. It cost us over two thousand killed, and a trillion dollars to do so. The height of his arrogance and idiocy was his insistence that the US pay him customs fees to ship our military equipment back out of the country. (Of course, since he’s dealing with Barry that might not be as stupid as it seems.)
But so far Karzai has not agreed to sign the BS agreement. (heh, heh) Then this weekend …
IRNA quoted Rouhani as telling Karzai: “We believe that all foreign forces should leave the region and that the security of Afghanistan should be handed over to people of the country.”
You have been Punked!
Colorado needs to work out a conflict between two different laws, both are on the books at the same time. One law says that “Marriage” is a union only between one man and one woman. Another law, backed up by a liberal fascist Commission, says that a person can be fined and imprisoned for refusing to bake a wedding cake for a same-sex couple.
Silly Season or End Times? I can’t tell anymore.
