Justifiable Homicide and a Visit to the Retirement Home

A Cop makes a radio call to headquarters:  

"Hello. Sarge, are you there?"

"Yes. Go ahead."

"We are at the scene, and it looks like a woman has just shot her husband for walking on her freshly mopped floor ."

"Do you have her in custody?"

"No Sir.  The floor is still wet."

---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..  ---- ..

Then there is This one.

During a visit to the retirement home, I asked;

“How do you determine whether or not a person should be institutionalized?”
“Well,” said the manager, “We fill up a bathtub, and then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub.”

“Oh, I understand,” I said. “A normal person would use the bucket because it’s bigger than the spoon or the teacup.”

“No,” he said. “A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want a bed near the window?”

It is for the Planet, Comrade.

Václav Klaus was born in Prague during the Nazi occupation. At the age of 4 Klaus and his family took part in building barricades during Prague uprising in May 1945.

Klaus entered Czechoslovak politics during the Velvet Revolution in 1989 and became Czechoslovakia's Minister of Finance in 1989.

Václav Klaus served as the first Prime Minister of an independent Czech Republic from 1993 to 1998, and was President of the Czech Republic from 2003 to 2013.

Václav Klaus had the following to say about global warming:

"I feel threatened now, not by global warming -- I don't see any -- (but) by the global warming doctrine, which I consider a new dangerous attempt to control and mastermind my life and our lives, in the name of controlling the climate or temperature. They don't care about resources or poverty or pollution. They hate us, the humans. They consider us dangerous and sinful creatures who must be controlled by them.

I used to live in a similar world called communism. And I know it led to the worst environmental damage the world has ever experienced. Global warming alarmists want to change us, they want to change our behavior, our way of life, our values and preferences. They want to restrict our freedom because they themselves believe they know what is good for us. They are not interested in climate. They misuse the climate in their goal to restrict our freedom.
Therefore, what is in danger is freedom, not the climate."

Václav Klaus lives in Czechoslovakia and is free to say these things. Here, in the USA he would be persecuted, vilified, brow-beaten, discredited and ridiculed for saying these things.

Our government was founded as a representative Republic. Now, unelected bureaucrats in agencies such as IRS, ATF, EPA, DHS, et al. ad nauseam, have usurped power from the legislative branch, aided and abetted by a President who illegally creates law by executive order and unilaterally changes laws passed by Congress.

Half of the Congress openly supports these violations of the separation of powers and so does the leadership of the other half.

As a result, it is no longer accurate to say, "our government". Because no longer is our government, a government of the people, for the people and by the people.

It's About Time

Here is an interesting quote from Robert Oppenheimer.  If you are not familiar with Oppenheimer, then read no further. 

It is perfectly obvious that the whole world is going to hell. The only possible chance that it might not is that we do not attempt to prevent it from doing so.

I've often pondered this statement and it has been only recently that a possible interpretation has come to mind that may be very apropos today.

Consider the mission (Jihad, if you will) of the so-called "radical" Muslims.  What they are trying to do is to prevent the world from going to Hell.  To their way of thinking, the world and all of humanity, will indeed go to Hell if all infidels are not eliminated from the earth as directed by their perfect prophet Muhammad.

It is time for us, the infidels, to step in and stop them from stopping their journey into Hell and damnation.

Which brings me back to Oppenheimer. Below is a photo of Oppenheimer inspecting a mound of fused sand in the New Mexico Desert.  The pile of twisted metal and glassified sand is ground zero of the World's first atomic explosion - the Trinity Test. 

The capability exists to transform the homeland of the Muslim lunatics into glassified sand.  ISIS and the land that spawned it could be made so barren and so sterile that no threat would ever again arise from that diseased and rotting part of our planet.

I spent most of my life working to insure and preserve the safety of my countrymen. I have worked in the very facilities where the plutonium was made that transformed desert into desolation.  The one and only time a plutonium bomb was used in battle was to quickly and decisively end  aggression by religious zealots worshiping a false Deity.  That weapon of defense also had it's origins where I spent my entire career.

Now, as I am entering the twilight of my life, I am beginning to think that it is time for the products of my life's work to be used once again as they were intended:  to secure the freedom and safety of my countrymen, and of the world, from crazed zealots on a path to global annihilation.

Here is another quote, a line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita;  where Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and, to impress him, takes on his multi-armed form and says:
"Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."

Here is a quote from me:
"Nuke 'em"

Net Neutrality: Just drink the Kool-Aid now - It'll save on bullets

Under the guise of saying it would prevent Comcast and Verizon from giving more bandwidth to "fatcats" and leaving us plebes with baud-rate speeds, the FCC passed it's open Internet rules, classifying the net as a utility.

Anyone who doesn't realize where all the bandwidth will go should just drink the Kool-Aid immediately.

It'll save on bullets.
Proponents of Net Neutrality say the telecoms have too much power. Many agree that monopolies are bad and competition is good. But if monopolies are bad, why should we trust the U.S. government, the largest, most powerful monopoly in the world?

We’re talking about the same organization that spent an amount equal to Facebook’s first six years of operating costs to build Obamacare websites that don’t work, the same organization that can’t keep the country’s bridges from falling down and potholes from breeding like rats in the night..

Think of anything huge with major problems. Public schools? Obamcare? Illegal immigration?  ISIS?  IRS?  Banking, physical infrastructure, the military, the police, the post office, et al, ad nauseam? What do all these  have in common? They are all heavily regulated or controlled by the government. On the other hand, where deregulation has occurred, innovation has bloomed, such as with telephony services. Do you think we’d all be walking around with smartphones today if the government still ran the phone system?

Free speech cannot exist without privacy, and the U.S. government has been shown to be unworthy of guarding the privacy of its citizens. Is this the organization we trust to take even more control of the Internet? Should we believe that under Net Neutrality the government will trust the telecoms to police themselves? The government will need to know if the telecoms are treating data as they should. Don’t be surprised if the government installs its own hardware and software at critical points to monitor Internet traffic. Once installed, can we trust this corrupt and bumbling idiocracy to use that access in a benign manner?

Many of our naive countrymen see government as benevolent and all-knowing with the best interests of you and me at heart. However, even the Founding Fathers feared that government could become a dangerous tyrant, influenced by large corporate interests, seeking to control everyone and everything. We have seen the enemy, and it is us.

If anyone believed the U.S. government was omniscient, had only good intentions, and that those intentions would never change, they would be in favor of Net Neutrality.  Simply put, the ponderously plodding and increasingly disconnected, U.S. government cannot be trusted. Any increase in regulation, however well-intentioned, however beneficial today, will lead to less freedom in the long term.


The individual activity of one man with backbone will do more than a thousand men with a mere wishbone.

Minnesota: Al Franken, Jesse Ventura, and Muslim Jihadis - Go Figure

It just does not get any more stupid than this.

Bloodthirsty terrorists announce their plans to murder maim and kill infidels at the Mall of America.  In response, the good people of Minnesota make it illegal for good honest Citizens of the USA to defend themselves, their families and their neighbors.

My ancestors were some of the earliest pioneers of Minnesota.

No wonder they moved out.

Greene vs. Brown: An amazing display of priorities

 An amazing display of priorities.

While few people had ever heard of Harold Greene before his death, many did afterwards. And in death, something shocking happened.

What was so shocking, especially when it is compared to the death of someone else recently in the news?

On August 5th, General Greene was killed by a Taliban terrorist. He was returned to America with full military honors.

It has been a tradition that the President attends the funeral of flag officers killed in the line of duty. Richard Nixon attended the funeral of a Major General killed in Vietnam and George W. Bush attended the funeral of Lieutenant General Timothy Maude, who was killed in the 9/11 attacks.

While Major General Greene was buried, Barack Obama was golfing.

The Vice President wasn’t there either.

Neither was the Secretary of Defense.

Flags were not even lowered to half staff.

Four days after Harold Greene gave his life for America, Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson , Missouri. It is safe to say, Brown was at best a thug.

Obama sent a three-person delegation to Michael Brown’s funeral!!

Obama would not attend the funeral of the highest ranking military officer killed in the line of duty since 9/11, yet he will send a delegation to the funeral of a thug.

When Margaret Thatcher, one of America ’s staunchest allies and Ronald Reagan’s partner in bringing down Soviet communism, died, Obama sent only a small low-level delegation to her funeral.

When Chris Kyle, a highly decorated and honored American Patriot was murdered, there was no expression of sympathy from the White House.

American heroes die and Obama goes to the golf course. A thug dies and he gets a White House delegation.

No wonder real Americans hold Obama in contempt.
