NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) — He saw something. He said something. And he inadvertently uncovered a secret spying operation that the New York Police Department was running outside its jurisdiction.

An open letter to the Wisconsin Jewish Chronicle

Buster Bullet Resurfaces!

Here's a note ...

... for the GOP:

But it’s a myth that there is no longer any audience for gun control. It is, in fact, almost exactly the same audience that President Obama is pursuing with virtually everything else he does. Gun control is deeply unpopular with the portions of the white electorate most hostile to Obama anyway: blue-collar whites and college-educated white men.

The note for the GOP is this: if you give any, any audience to gun control, you'll lose at least enough voters who go for the GOP because there's no where else for them to go. Like me.

Husband wants to fulfill wifes' rape fantasy ...

... wife has other ideas:

Police responded Saturday to a distress call from the house; when they arrived, they found the woman holding Combs at gunpoint and arrested him, according to the warrant.

Heh. h/t Radley


You know ...

... I wish they would:

Last night, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg went on CNN’s Piers Morgan show to discuss the need for expanded gun control in the wake of the massacre in Aurora, Colorado last week. Bloomberg suggested that police across the country go on strike to demand greater gun control legislation (via NewsAlert):

It may seem to be counter-intuitive, but I am firmly in Mayor Bloomberg's court on this one. The police should go on strike. Then, when the criminals take over New York, the people living there will see how badly their city has been run for all these years, and how ineffective the policies in place are.

This, I think ...

... hits the nail on the head:

When having this conversation, it’s far too easy to say, “Oh! Of course we don’t want to kill people! So let’s discuss your proposition.”

It’s time to come out with it and speak the plain truth which was born and bred into the very soul of the United States from day one:

There may yet come a day when you will have no choice.

This is one of the deep, dark not-so-well-hidden facts of the pro-gun movement. Ultimately, we keep firearms because we may, indeed someday need to kill someone.

Note that I did not say 'murder' someone ... that is a conflation that is used by the progressive Left.

The Left seem to think that you, as a citizen, have no inherent right to live. I'll take that back ... no inherent right that is basic enough for you to use force outside of the state to protect. And that is wrong.

According to The BG News, the ordinance would ban any type of distraction that takes the driver's attention away from the road. While some residents expressed concern that this vague definition would violate their rights, personal injury attorney Mike D. Bell says the heart of the ordinance is in everyone's best interest.

Oh, it might be in the attorneys' best interest, but you can be assured that the newordinance would be abused in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

Maggie, filling in for Radley ...

... notes that you shouldn't call the police:

Maybe if the police officer had arrived just a minute later, the young man would still be alive.

That’s what the friends and family of Destin Thomas say, after Columbus police confirmed yesterday that it was one of their own officers who shot and killed Thomas while responding to a 911 call he had made on Tuesday morning.

Yup, police shot the guy who called 911.

What's the takeaway? Don't call 911.

In which I'll echo ...

... OldNFO, as he expresses condolences.

While I feel for the victims and their families, I just can't seem to get worked up about stuff like this, if only because I'll now have to listen to the idiotic anti-gun rantings of progressive idiots everywhere.

I've got few enough IQ points as it is ...


This has been going around ...

... and I realize I'm late to the party.

Robb has the most comments (and the most spirited debate), but I have to sort of disagree with my Imaginary Friend.*

Some of the adages I've heard (and spoken) refer to the fact that reasonable people are in bed at 1:30 in the morning. Now, if you're willing to ascribe perfection to law enforcement (I am not), then you can take the officers' side in this.

But if you, however, are more ... reasoned ... then you have to question whether the police were correct in assuming that just because the suspect's motorcycle was across from the victim's door, that the suspect would necessarily be in that apartment. So let's knock on this guy's door at 1:30, wake him up, not identify ourselves as good guys and hope that the citizen we just woke up will assume we're not criminals and be prepared to defend himself.

Yeah, that sounds more than reasonable ...

Now, given the facts as reported (always an iffy proposition), the officers had to have already had their weapons drawn and their fingers already on the trigger to have gotten the drop on a citizen who opened the door with his own weapon pointed at the officers (who, remember, didn't identify themselves for safety reasons ... theirs), so in my mind, the officers were pretty fucking sure that the guy they were looking for was going to open the door.

This looks to me like a case of police acting with an unspoken assurance that whatever they do will be looked at by those who matter in the most favorable light.

In a free state, that's just wrong.


*Imaginary Friend - what my wife calls the bloggers I follow. Those I have actually met I call my not-Imaginary Friends.

So screw John McCain. And while we’re at it, screw the rest of the cowardly establishment GOP surrender monkeys who blast away at the TEA Party in order to curry a favor with the left that it will never, ever afford them, except when it’s useful to the left.

Because noticing that Hillary Clinton BFF Huma Abedin's close relatives have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood is unhelpful and most likely racist.

Just a note ...

There's an illness in the family, so posting might be a little ... light.


I stand up ...

... for the NRA:

House Majority Leader Gerald McCormick of Chattanooga said the traditional alliance between Republican lawmakers and the NRA has had very little meaning in recent years.

“They’re our allies as long as it in their self-interest — and I don’t think it’s in their self-interest anymore,” McCormick said. “Now that we’re the governing party, they’re going to be critical. They’re never going to be satisfied.”

Keep in mind that there is no love lost between the NRA and I, but Rep McCormick fundamentally misunderstands the relationship between politicians and the NRA (or any other advocacy organization, for that matter).

Republicans get the majority of NRA campaign donations because Republicans have historically been better (not perfect) supporters of the 2nd amendment. As Sebastian will tell you, this does not preclude a 2nd amendment-supporting Democrat from receiving campaign funds from the NRA. Surely Rep McCormick isn't so stupid that he doesn't understand that, as a single-issue organization, everything that they do is in their self-interest, or should I say, in the interest of the members. The best way to continue to get funds is to continue to support the pro-2nd amendment agenda.

It's as simple as that.

I've always wondered ...

... how many we are:

In a 2010 paper, Cato concluded that libertarians "are increasingly a swing vote ... a bigger share of the electorate than the much discussed 'soccer moms' of the 1990s or 'NASCAR dads' of the early 2000s, and bigger than many of the micro-targeted groups pursued by political strategists in the 2004 and 2008 elections."

Many of these voters would describe themselves as independents, a group that both candidates desperately need in order to win, said Samples. The libertarian view of limited government and free market economics usually pushes these voters toward Republican candidates, even if their social views are more in line with the Democratic Party.

I know that the conventional wisdom is the the 'independent' vote is much less engaged than partisans, but I've always wondered how much of htat is due to the fact that you can't trust what either mainstream party says ...

My dad just got remarried to a fine woman, who is originally from the northeast. She holds an annual 'camp' for her grandchildren, and this year I'm taking her grandson shooting (since he's 13 and lives in IL) for a day.

As part of that, I'm looking at the shooting opportunities in his home town in case he likes shooting (and who doesn't?!).

What the fuck is wrong with you people in IL?!! I knew it'd be a hard row to hoe but I never imagined the reality.

And why the fuck hasn't the NRA sued over the fucking FOID card? Having to have a license to exercise an enumerated right? A suit over the FOID would be my first objective (especially after Heller and McDonald).

Independence Day

Happy Independence Day!

Be safe out there, and while you're out having hot dogs and bbq, remember the day and what it means.


IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,

When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

A glacier moves, slowly ...

... but it moves none the less:

...the law is now his. This is RobertsCare. And how we get there matters.

Until we start teaching that lesson — as I’ve been arguing here for years and years and years now — we’re doomed to repeat the kinds of foundational errors that, when nestled into the rules of “legitimate” hermeneutic procedures, will always and (irony!) intentionally move us away from individual autonomy and toward tyranny.

Jeff, once again, spells out what happened and why we need to be aware of what happened, something he's been preaching for a long time.

I may not have the intellect of a Jeff Goldstein but even I can see that a living constitution, though it can serve as a guide to government, can never be limiting of government the way it was intended.

If it is, then Roberts has to go. I have no philosophical argument with a justice changing his mind, but to reverse-engineer a decision? That's the kind of crap liberals pull.
