Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

Who knew, right? I haven’t stopped laughing since I watched this in awe yesterday. It was that “deer in the headlights” look where you just can’t believe what you just heard. Matter of fact, when you watch this lie that Schultz puts forth to the people, you will see that exact look. But don’t worry none because Josh Earnest came to the rescue and “clarified” what the WH was trying to say.

The above example is as basic as it gets. It is the same as drawing a picture with crayons to make someone understand what you are trying to convey. What is trying to be conveyed by this administration is this: The American people are stupid and will believe anything we say. I can’t make this stuff up. Not this good, anyway.

This all had to do with Bowe Bergdahl, whose favorite song is this:
Come Mister Tally-Bahn, tally me bonanas,
Daylight come and me want to go home.

You might think that with the recent ISLAMIC terror attack on the people of France, the world would be more outraged by these people and want to reign in the “nice talk” and “nice deeds” towards them. Charlie Hebdo magazine produced its most recent copy with Mohammed on the front and the caption “All Is Forgiven”. Who is forgiving who? Seems a pretty dumb statement however you twist it around. But it isn’t as dumb as what Obama did last night. He released 5 MORE GITMO ISLAMIC TERRORISTS, bringing the total to 20 since December 8th. He did this in light of what just happened in France. Why?
It would appear that Obama believes these detainees to be combatants from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and therefor need to be released since those wars are declared “over”. I thought these detainees were ISLAMIC TERRORISTS and I don’t know that their war was declared over. Matter of fact, I don’t know that Obama has ever admitted that there is a war on terror. Just another nail for his coffin. Problem being, no one seems to care enough to DO anything about it.

On another stupid note, it appears that Duke University wants to continue with its “political correctness” stance, as well its anti-Christian stance, by allowing a Friday Muslim call to prayer. Hum. What could possibly be wrong with this picture?

That’s right. It appears that she feels a need to declassify information that will give dates, names and occurrences where the CIA used torture to extract information from enemy individuals. Well, the torture issue is not new. What happened was some tapes from an enemy combatant were erased by the CIA to save lives. Feinstein and her committee decided to investigate the CIA and the CIA starting looking……with interest….into Dianne Feinstein. This is more a case of ruffled feathers than anything else. Also, because the Senate will change political sides come January; if Feinstein doesn’t release this report now, the new Senate will never let it get released. So for ruffled feathers and for little, if any, new information on tactics and techniques, Feinstein will put American lives in peril, as well as make it near impossible for future endeavors to get intel from foreign nationals or governments. It is hard to fathom how 8 years of a Dem president and 8 years of a Dem Senate with 4 years of a Dem House could set back this country 60 to 80 years. How do you explain this stuff to grandbabies and great grandbabies, who ask you how it came about and why was it allowed to come about.

Banned from yet another leftist blog. I got there via the The Middle Class Political Economist, which has some interesting articles. Unfortunately, the host “moderates” all comments, which can take days (if at all — it seems some get “lost”), so there is no conversation to speak of. But some articles were cross-posted, and does not so “moderate” commentary.

Well, at first viewing it looked like a sane economics blog, with some interesting analysis of Fed interest rate policy, labor share and labor force participation rates, etc. No such luck. It’s full of intolerant libs who, if you disagree with their socialist policies, start calling one racist, stupid, arrogant, anti-poor, 370H $$@, etc. Finally, I was banned — ostensibly for repeatedly “introducing a new topic” (a.k.a. “hijacking”) threads. Indeed, in the last instance, the topics I was discussing were introduced by the original poster herself. It seems that the “new topics” I introduced were facts, logic, and reason. And they just cannot handle that.

I doubt that any of the commenters there will deign to come here. I applaud Troll and Special Ed for having the balls to stick to their guns when they are in the minority. The folks at Angry Bear cannot handle the comments of even a single conservative.

As can be read here, the Ebola virus comes in five known strains. It is nasty and it is deadly…..up to 90% rate of fatality. Good thing it stays on the African continent where it sprang from, right? Not so much. Because the world is getting smaller, with more people and more use of transportation, nothing is off the table. Here is a story on the recent outbreak. And with the previous article you will note that it is being transmitted by animals but not causing outbreak in humans. It leaves “antibodies” in the victim. ANY virus can come back to life in a human under the correct conditions.

Unfortunately, many diseases seem to thrive and survive in areas where there are poor conditions of human life, like third world countries. And, although many good Samaritans are working in those areas to uplift that lifestyle, sometimes the best that can be done is to keep things in check–no better and no worse. With that in mind, as well the “benign” looking symptoms that Ebola starts with, think about people coming to this country unchecked medically. Think of the diseases which have been eradicated here making a comeback from people entering our borders……checked and unchecked. We live in an environment today with people and an administration that carry a laissez faire attitude about illegals entering our country. The stew is being made right under our noses.

The world and America are coming apart at the seams. You would think that if we had a President that he would be focused on resolving some issues. That would happen IF we had a President. We only have a lying, bloviating fund raiser who spends much of his time playing golf. And when he goes somewhere to exercise his expertise in one of the above mentioned venues, it causes problems for the little people because of the necessity of security. Of course, he being the Messiah and great unifier, he really shouldn’t have need for security but that is another matter. Because he does have this need, nightmares ensue for anyone trying to do anything near where he will be or the route he takes. Now the issue with Clinton getting his hair cut on the Tarmac and delaying flights for 2 hours was really a big boner. But when security stops a woman in labor from crossing the street (and an ambulance from what I understand), this seems to go beyond the pale. Should the citizens suffer and possibly die to accommodate the boy king’s foolish follies? Gee, I wonder.

That is what many reservoirs are used for…..swimming. So a guy pees thru the fence near a reservoir of TREATED water. I never knew that reservoirs were treated first. Why in the hell would you do that? So you have a big pool of treated water, waiting to be used. In the meantime, rainwater (untreated) puts all types of pollutant particles in that reservoir. Fish, amphibians, birds and reptiles are using that water. In all my fishing and scuba diving experience, I have yet to see any type of aquatic toilet facility for said species. On top of that, any run off will go into the reservoir. The species named above ingest all manner of contaminates; chemical, natural, human, biological. So what’s the problem.

Do this mathematically. A guy has a 6 pack of beer. He drains the monster (we’ll say he expels the complete content intake=72 ounces) directly into the 50 MILLION gallon reservoir. His content would equal approximately 1 part in 50 million. Ever swam in a pool with kids in it? Lots less water and lots more parts (yes, kids pee in the pool ALL the time). Do they drain that water? Nope, just retreat it…..over and over and over throughout the season. Now, the west and southwest have been paining for water for years. Thousands and thousands of acres have had water access curtailed and crops no longer exist. And these guys are going to dump 38 million gallons into the SANITARY sewer, where it will be retreated before it goes to the river. Oh, yeah. There is a charge for this and all water users will pay it. Hope these people never learn about dying of thirst. Try drinking out of a muddy footprint on the ground. That would change your mindset.
