Disenfranchising the Society of Cincinnatus

Since the military traditionally votes heavily Republican, I can only assume one side is responsible for this story of voter disenfranchisement, which is just sad. I'm former military and no it doesn't make me a great person, but this sort of kleptocratic horse manure is startling. Remember vets, protect your vote, you've served and you deserve a say in how this country is run.

Benghazi Blunders And Energy Policy Revealed

The Las Vegas Review Journal has put out an article that if it gets in to the wider media is a body blow to the myth of Obama being a supporter of American prosperity In the article they contain such gems as this:

Back in January 2008, Barack Obama told the editorial board of the San Francisco Chronicle that under his cap-and-trade plan, "If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. It's just that it will bankrupt them." He added, "Under my plan ... electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket." It was also in 2008 that Mr. Obama's future Energy Secretary, Steven Chu, famously said it would be necessary to "figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe" - $9 a gallon.

If that wasn't damning enough it uses the various communications, official and otherwise, too and from the white house to discuss  just how incompetent the administration has been in the face of the "incident" in Libya which our president found to be "not optimal".

The official explanation for the inadequate security? This administration didn't want to "offend the sensibilities" of the new radical Islamic regime which American and British arms had so recently helped install in Libya.
The official explanation for why Obama administration officials watched the attack unfold for seven hours, refusing repeated requests to send the air support and relief forces that sat less than two hours away in Italy? Silence.
An open discussion of these issues, of course, would lead to difficult questions about the wisdom of underwriting and celebrating the so-called Arab Spring revolts in the first place. While the removal of tyrants can be laudable, the results show a disturbing pattern of merely installing new tyrannies - theocracies of medieval mullahs who immediately start savaging the rights of women (including the basic right to education) and who are openly hostile to American interests.

It's my opinion this is the sort of body blow that could sink Obama's reelection efforts if it got out more readily, read the whole thing here

Pumpkin Carving, Obama's Friends And Foul Weather Drinking

So it turns out there is one more use for guns besides just killing stuff and breaking things, you can also make festive holiday decorations with them. Awesome.

It also appears, according to The Daily Caller, that the reverend who gave president Obama's inaugural benediction is another white guy hating racist. What's that old line about knowing a man by the company he keeps? The pres sure has a bad habit of surrounding himself with crooks, commies, terrorists and racists if you ask me.

I have been reminded recently my alcohol cabinet is inadequately stocked, as I had no port to weather the storm with when Sandy blew through.

Boeing successfully tested a microwave missile that will either eliminate enemy command and control electronics... or make them a lot of popcorn very briefly, maybe both.

Westbor Baptist Church Planning Their Own Genocide

The idiots at the Westboro Baptist Church are planning their own ruination, with a protest on Veterans Day at Arlington National Cemetery. Suicidal asshats. Here is a cut from their press release.

Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, VA    November 12, 2012  10:00 AM – 12:00 PM
Westboro Baptist Church will picket Arlington National Cemetery as a perfect follow up to our nice Pentagon Picket.
Did we mention that the Pentagon had fag day last June? The next stop is hell, and as you wait for your body to join your soul, fashioned to be perfectly suited for hell, for eternity, that dead carcass can have a pit stop at Arlington. What a worthless and telling place! They worship the dead there. They insist that you go quietly and that you cannot run and that you must sit if you are in the range of the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier (listen up rebels, God knows who is in that tomb, he cast that soul into hell, and he called for the tomb, so that in that day, when rebel carcassas come out like worms from their holes to join their rebellions soul, and many more words on that, I say, God has arranged for all the right pieces of dust to join their souls for that trip.
Also, this is Veteran’s Day. Where the nation joins together to shake their fist at God and spit in his face.
They got their dates wrong, day late and a dollar short for their meds, but still...

Do It Yourself Videos

Yesterday I had to repair some computer issues, but I am putting up (late, yes) another in the series of Birth Of A Tool series by John Neenam. This time? A chisel is born. It kinda makes you want to frow a beard and go out somewhere to work in a forge, doesn't it?
