Ok, What the Fu** is up with all this immigrant sh**?

Just let it be know if I see an American Flag upside down under a Mexican flag, as soon as I make sure nobody is in need of help, I will fix that crap ASAP. I can't see how making yourselves into a mob, an illegal mob at that, will win anybody over to your side. Let me be clear,ILLEGAL MEANS BREAKING THE LAW. AS IN YOU ARE DOING SOMETHING WRONG. YOU ARE NOT A CITIZEN OF THIS COUNTRY AND HAVE NO SAY IN ITS GOVERNMENT. SO GO HOME AND STFU.

How can people not understand/realize this. I hope this clears up any misunderstandings.

Is he saying what I think he is saying?

Glenn Reynolds ( instapundit) says Israel does not have the sack to square away Iran

At least that is what I think he said. If so, I humbly disagree. Now I am nowhere near as adept at world political thought as Glenn but, I still believe that Israel has the wherewithal to do what needs to be done and they are just looking for a head nod from the US. With maybe a few planes thrown in for good measure.

Now don't get me wrong. A quick perusal of this blog and one might come to the conclusion that I am a Damn the torpedoes, Kill 'em all let God sort 'em out kinda dude, that could not be further from the truth. I am the guy always breaking up fights. Always the peacemaker. But in this instance I think we (western civilization) are just giving Iran the time they need to either make a bomb or hide/protect evidence of said bomb making. Somebody smart once said a good defense is a good offense. This may have not been the exact situation he had in mind but, it still fits. I cannot see a diplomatic way out of this one. At least not for Israel. Iranian president ihavenoideahowtospellhisname has already said that he believes that Israel should be wiped off the map and Iran is trying to get the capability to do just that. I don't think turning the other cheek will work in this instance for it will be just as blown to bits as the other one.

I have a solution for this.

Via Stop the ACLU

I hereby volunteer to execute anyone found guilty of rape of any child. I also will take care of anyone found guilty of abusing any child.

This should make both sides happy. No privacy violation so the ACLU will be ok, no having to deal with these scum misfit pieces of crap for the state.

A win win.

Update: As I write this post Hannity and Colmes is discussing how to handle these guys after they get out. Offender registration and the like. My solution also eliminates the need for any of this.

Win Win Win

This is the definition of stupidity.

Via Yahoo news

California wants to line a canal that brings water from the Colorado River with concrete to prevent seepage which is taking away too much water. Two parts of this caught the attention of my crazy detector:

A group of Mexicali farmers and businesses has sued in federal court in Las Vegas to stop construction; a hearing is scheduled April 24.

So they can sue in our courts to ge our water without paying?? Does this make any sense?
Also this little gem:

Critics also say migrants may die crossing the 175-foot-wide
canal because the concrete lining will deprive desperate swimmers of tall
grasses to grab. Although the canal appears calm, migrants who cram onto
inflatable rafts can be swept away by a fierce undercurrent.
Nine people died in the canal last year, down from 29 in 2001, according to the Imperial County coroner's office. The drop tracked a shift in border crossings to Arizona as the U.S. government heightened enforcement in California. The coroner's office says canal drownings could rise if California ever regains favor among illegal border crossers. To prevent such deaths, crews will build ladders 750 feet apart on both sides of the concrete lining to give desperate swimmers something to grab.

So why exactly are we making it EASIER for illegals to get into our country?? What could possibly be the reason for this? Why don't we make it easier for criminals to escape prison or easier for pedophiles to find little children. All of these
things are against the law and yet they get very different treatment. I think the CSP is coming more and more to becoming a reality. I think a viable third party candidate does have a chance based on border security alone.

I know I know, nobody but me likes these.....

these guys crack me up.

I have stayed away from abortion laws and all they entail. I am very against abortion, I believe it to be morally repugnant.

I would never have an abortion, obviously. That being said, I cannot get behind restricting others rights to do so. This seems contradictory to a free society. Freedom has cost.

I sometimes have a hard time with paradoxes just like this. Each and every time I fall on the side of individual freedom. Every time. I know this seems hypocritical. Being for allowing someone to do something I am totally against but, Freedom, freedom, freedom. This is the foundation on which all, ALL, of my beliefs are based.

So, if you want to get an abortion I will vigorously defend your right to do so while at the same time let you know that if you do, you are pretty much fucked.

Music to my ears...

To all of those yelling to impeach Bush. I have two words for you, and how sweet they are, for this is a stunningly precise example of damned if you do, damned if you don't.

President Cheney.

You gotta love it.

All of this crap disgusts me.

Via Michelle Malkin

I have always been a conservative supporter. I have not always agreed with all of the practices of the right but it boils down to lesser of two evils.

That, my fellow subjects is the real evil. We only have two choices and they both SUCK. Bush sticks to his guns, even to a fault and the right has spent the US into the debt ceiling. Now you might be asking, whats wrong with sticking to your guns? Well, Bush has not had a gun to stick with on many issues he should have faced head on. He needs to control his party and get back to being the small government conservative he is supposed to be. I have heard several figures thrown out about the size of the federal government now vs. Clinton times, but if I take the middle road it is still BIGGER. WTF??? How does this translate to smaller government? Don't even get me started on the war on terror but leaving our borders wide open. This is a conundrum of epic proportions. Like jumbo shrimp.

Don't get me wrong I still detest the liberal and almost every thing they do. It is funny if you look at what the liberal party and organizations like the ACLU say on their face then most reasonable people would support them. Instead they take the worst road from their origins and go into alternate realities I cannot even understand.

I don't have an answer to the problem. I know if I want to find a candidate I am completely happy with I will have to form my own party and run myself. I could call it the Common Sense Party. CSP, kinda has a nice ring to it. The problem with this approach is that third party's are not usually viable, again, the aforementioned evil.

So the question remains, what is a reasonable person to do? It all comes back to the lesser of two evils, who sucks less, which will steal from me the least, who will take away less of my freedoms and liberties?

No choice but which one is not as bad as the other. That my friends is the real evil.

This is a perfect role for women in combat.

I know both of my little sisters are much better at video games than I am. They grew up in a video game world, it passed me by. I love this product, I mean talk about American ingenuity, This is why we win. Take all those hours spent on the Xbox or playstation and actually turn it into a skill.

Now those slacker Gen-X ers actually will be recruited by the armed forces.

Win, win if you ask me.

American Idol

What kind of geek am I? My wife and I tivo'ed all three episodes this week and watched them at once.

I like Kelly Pickler for all the wrong reasons. She is so hot but can't sing a lick. Now if she had Mandisa's voice, then she would be the total package.

Taylor strikes me as the best male singer, either him or Chris Daughtry.

Cell phone review.

Motorola MPX 220 . I just bought this one from eBay, to avoid a new contract, and so far I love it. It syncs well and the interface is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO much better that mobile phone tools*spit*. I love the windows base OS and it has all of the features a good phone/PDA needs. It is not a blackberry or treo but it is almost as good at a fourth of the price.

A mans house is his castle.

Not anymore. Via uncle

He has been really keeping up with the whole eminent domain thing around the nation. I posted a while back about the fact that I believe your home is the place to make a stand. This would only be prudent in very certain circumstances and you would lose, but, I still believe it. If the state wanted to put an interstate through my house and offered me a decent price for my home, I would move. I know the operative word is "decent" but anywhere within 20% of local value would do.

If they wanted to take my home to put up condos or build a mall then I might balk. Now I need to clarify here that for the right amount of money I would move and I would not care one iota what they put here. So that makes some of what I am saying hypocritical but I see a difference.

This would have to be stand that I though would make a difference. I mean cameras and media all over and local folks on my side. Not just me and my AR in the den waiting on the swat guys. This would be a stand to wage in the media and in streets. Not an easy bill to fill.

A mans home is his castle...Not any more.

How does this outfit look on me?

This is the question that every husband hates to hear. For no matter what they say it is a loaded question. Fraught with dangers and pitfalls. I usually just say something about needing to see it in the daytime and leave it at that. You know,"looks good, I need to see it in the daytime to fully see the colors". After that I am off the hook.

New gun laws

Via Uncle

I am more interested in the restaurant carry bill that Neify has successfully stalled. As it is I bet more people that you imagine just break that particular law. I am going to carry when I am out to eat. I do not drink so I am no danger.

The state of Tennessee would have me be unarmed in the exact place where most robberies occur, the corner gas station. This is totally unacceptable. The way I read the law, it is illegal to carry anywhere that alcohol is served or sold. This means gas stations, grocery stores, and the like. So why can't I carry at the grocery? It is illegal to drink any alcohol I buy on the premises but I cannot legally carry a weapon. Why is this? This seems arbitrary to me. I wonder how much leeway an officer has in this situation. On that note I am not sure I want there to be any leeway, I want to be able to exercise my Second Amendment Right wherever I choose.

p.s. As a rule I don't hunt with .223, I have but it was, uhmm, unproductive. I recommend a 30-30 or 30.06.

UPDATE: It appears that the law was changed so it is only illegal to carry where alcohol is sold for on-site consumption. So I now only break the law half as much.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

Via Drudge

I have been wondering how long before the total lack of protection to our nations infrastructure was exploited. Now don't get me wrong, I hope this was not a case of that, but it seems a little to coincidental.

There are miles and miles of unprotected pipeline alone. If you add in bridges and tunnels it becomes a little bit of a nightmare. Living in Memphis, where we have two of less than a dozen traffic bridges across the Mississippi, we also have the worlds busiest cargo airport, and a naval personal base, if you don't worry about potential natural or man made disasters you are crazy. I am not nor have I ever been a conspiracy theorist, but I wonder if the government would not keep a pipeline breach or similar issue quiet to keep chaos from resulting. They might chalk it up to an accident. I know this post rambles and has no real point, but I am just expressing a vague unease. So take that for what it is worth to you.

Those of us who are self described "gun nuts" also spend a lot of time and energy being prepared for thing that have a very small chance of occurring, but, how do you prepare for not being able to cross a river? This would shut down almost all of our nations commerce. If stores cannot get product they can't sell it. Picture going to the grocery store and the shelves being empty. Now I figure most folks who read this blog are calm and collected enough that this would not send them into another dimension of fear, but we are the minority I assure you. Total panic would ensue. We would all be forced to fall back on ourselves to take care of our own families. Then we will see who is better prepared.

Wow, as I reread the last two sentences they sure do seems off the chart in the paranoid department, but I wrote it and there it will stay. I still believe it to be true though.
