ANOTHER LESSON LEARNED THE HARD WAY


The following story illustrates the importance of gun ownership and the need to have your weapon ready if the situation warrants it.  It’s too bad that being armed has become a necessity but that is the lifestyle we now face in the United States of America.

The headlines in the “Valley and State” section of the Arizona Republic shouted yesterday (January 14) that “17 YEAR OLD FATALLY SHOT IN FIGHT”.

The story goes as follows:  The 17 year old was shot to death at about 11:15 p. m. Saturday outside an apartment complex at 17th Street and Indian School Road.

Responding officers found that the 17 year olds’ two 18 year old brothers were throwing large river rocks into an apartment occupied by a 19 year old guy, his girlfriend, and child.  One of the rocks had hit the 19 year old requiring medical attention.

Investigators determined that the 17 year old and his two brothers had been drinking and gotten into an argument with the 19 year old.  The 19 year old walked away and went into his apartment and shut the door. At that time the 17 year old went into his apartment and retrieved two knives.

When he returned with the knives, he and his brothers tried to force their way into the 19 year olds’ apartment while hollering threats.

The 19 year old repeatedly told them to leave and that he had a gun.  Fearing for his life and the lives of his girlfriend and baby, he shot the 17 year old dead.  The brothers retreated and began throwing the river rocks through the apartment window.

When push comes
to shove........
 When the police arrived, they arrested the two brothers.  The 19 year old guy was released on a self defense claim.

I wonder how many times a day this situation is re-enacted in the United States.  I wonder how many times the person being attacked doesn’t have a gun and winds up on the unfortunate end of the stick.

In this case, the guy had a gun and protected his family while the bad guy suffered death.  It seems only appropriate that it should be that way yet there are those who think all our guns should be taken away.

I never thought that I would have to carry a gun with me but I now go nowhere without it.  I like the above story in the sense that three guys were breaking into an apartment with a guy, his girl, and their baby and they were thwarted by firepower.

Maybe a few crooks will hear about it and think twice before attacking someone.

But the vice president says if we save only one life through confiscating guns from good citizens it will be worth it.

now I'm confused- is the vice president not telling the truth or something?

It has shown that liquor and gunpowder do not mix. This is a prime example of it.

The VP has been sniffing to many chemical fumes from DuPont!!

Mike Slater said...

Jim, it's a sad fact but in today's country carrying a gun is a necessity. I've had a CCW for 15 years and never leave home without my gun. It's like a piece of clothing.

ArizonaDave said...

Jimmy Mac....Guns are not the problem; it's the unstable individual holding the gun that presents the problem....probably not fixable on a universal basis.

I got a true story for you and your readers. My golf group finished our round recently and were sitting in the grill having a beer when the conversation turned to guns...we had two foursomes on that particular day, and the question came up...

"How many of the 8 players had a gun in their auto in the parking lot?"

....surprised me....6 out of 8 had their guns loaded in auto...I was one of the two without a gun, and all of a sudden, I felt pretty insecure.

...but I did shoot the low golf score that day...Big Deal...

PROUD said...

Here we go again. Republicans taking a partisan, principled stand against any gun control,

A HUGE mistake in my view....

A skilled politician with his own bully pulpit, Obama will use this to paint them as out of touch with America, radical, owned by special interest,right wing, loons....

In other words,pretty much exactly what he did to them on their partisan, principled stand against raising any taxes...

If anyone cares to recall, there were Democrats a year earlier wanting to cut a deal by raising the tax threshold to $500K, or a few looking to raise it to $1M...But those good old principled Republicans stood their ground, and got slaughtered politically....

And if they stay the course, De Ja Vue, all over again

Now come on... surely there have to be a few middle ground changes that everyone could agree to without changing things all that much? For example, back ground checks at gun shows. Why not show you care by working together (something every survey shows the public yearns for)

Taking a stand against ANY changes is ridiculous, changes will be made, sure most of them will be meaningless, feel good measures, but the public wants to feel good, and they want to see their politicians do something to show they care.even if they don't.

Today, more than ever,perception is reality....this hard line taken by Republicans will lead to yet another gigantic defeat, they will hand Obama another hero cape, and accomplish nothing other than to further paint Republicans as "the problem" .....

Wise up, this shit is called politics for a reason....

PROUD said...

It begins:

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++
"White House Press Secretary Jay Carney announced this afternoon that President Obama will unveil a “concrete package” of gun control proposals including assault weapons bans, high capacity ammunition magazine bans, and closing loopholes on background checks.

Carney said that the president will be joined by Vice President Joe Biden as well as children who wrote to the president after the Newtown shootings.

“They will be joined by children around the country expressing their concerns about gun violence and school safety, along with their parents,” Carney confirmed.

The press conference will take place Wednesday at 11:45 a.m."
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Those mean old Republicans...they love the NRA and HATE little children! (that's the way Obama is framing the entire gun debate, and Repubs again seem willing to simply be props, useful idiots....

Glo said...

It's actually a miracle that the so-called justice system didn't arrest the 19-year-old! How many cases do we hear about where the pepetrator sues the victim and actually get away with it? About time there was some justice. Now, how long before a scumsukking bottom-feeder (AKA lawyer) files a suit against the victim on behalf of the dead guy's family?

midnightsstaff said...

.."What the common man longs for in this world, before and above all his other longings, is the simplest and most ignominious sort of peace: the peace of a trusty in a well-managed penitentiary.

He is willing to sacrifice everything else to it. He puts it above his dignity and he puts it above his pride.
Above all, he puts it above his liberty. The fact, perhaps, explains his veneration for policemen, in all the forms they take–his belief that there is a mysterious sanctity in law, however absurd it may be in fact." HL Mencken.

The first four years of tyranny were nearly without loss to the average muppet, they could go along with the program because they were not suffering any loss because of it and they were convinced it was some amorphic Bush based reason for the conditions for the situation.. it was sold as the other guy- like those demonic rich- who were finally going to be forced to pay for their sins against the common man.

Stealing from the bondholders at Chrysler and GM and giving that private property to the unions four years ago was as much a symbolic victory to the muppets as nationalizing industry was in the 1930's Europe-
no public outcry there!

But with the new tone and broken promises to follow I think we are going to see a lot more people finally waking up to the end game.

Bottom line is, it's a lot easier to gain support for the theft of other's property than it is to suggest the same action directed toward their own possessions.

His reach has exceeded his grasp.

I do agree with Proud that the Repubican party is no better today except by degree than the socialist party in this country now led by a full throated communist.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

If he was Pinnochio, his nose would be 10 feet long.

Liar extrordinnaire!

Jim McAllister said...

Dave,

He is definitely the dummy from Delaware.

Jim McAllister said...

Mike,

Definitely better to be safe than sorry.

Sometimes when we go out Barb will ask, "Do you want to take the gun?" My answer is always the same, "Of course!"

Jim McAllister said...

AZ Dave,

6 of 8 sounds about right these days.

If I was you, I'd make it 7 of 8. Just keep the thing loaded and handy. The chances are you won't need it but if a situation arises, you'll be ready.

Glad to see your golf game is still intact. I wish I had your swing.

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

Frankly, I'm tired of seeing the SOB get his way on everything and with the number of gun owners he may have to back down. He is the one who will never give an inch; not the Republicans.

Anyone of normal intelligence has to see through that ploy of announcing gun laws with the kids surrounding him. That's a sorry ass sympathy show that is as phony as he is.

Look at the debt ceiling thing going on now. He said nothing is negotiable; it has to be his way 100% or he will tell the country it's all the Republicans' fault.

How about that statement from Texas about arresting any Feds who come by trying to enforce new gun laws:

http://radio.woai.com/cc-common/mainheadlines3.html?feed=119078&article=10700507

I say Texas should go for it and they aren't the only state. Someone has to stand up to this guy; he acts like some kind of king. He needs his ears pinned back for a change.

It's not going to help him to have a bunch of states pissed at him and there are plenty that are.

Jim McAllister said...

Glo,

Yeah, that kind of surprised me too but so far the shooter has not been arrested.

The cops called it self defense right at the scene according to the story. A bit surprising that they wouldn't have a more thorough investigation. Maybe there are several witnesses.

The 19 year old guy was going to be in deep trouble with those three guys if he didn't have the gun plus the girl and the baby were in peril.

It sounds like an area of town where Mensa members are scarce.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

But with the new tone and broken promises to follow I think we are going to see a lot more people finally waking up to the end game.

The guy has become so arrogant that even some members of the freeshit army may rebel on him plus the NRA carries its share of clout.

I love the Texas declaration of arresting any Feds who show up trying to implement new regulations on guns.

It shows some solidarity which may spread especially in the South.

He is becoming more arrogant every day which tells me he may be coming apart a bit.

sam said...

It may not be coming apart, but the seams are weakening.

The "Obama Phone" lady is currently demonstrating AGAINST Obama, it appears...and an increasing number of businesses and their employees are REALLY pissed at Holder and his thugs, among other of Obama's departments.

sam said...

just saw that the earlier news I read and heard is typical "news".....false ! !
the Obama Phone Lady is now reported as being still an Obama supporter, but contrary to the news I heard and read, simply can no longer vote for him.
Guess I got caught believing news reports again....DAMN...
(lesson relearned)

proud said...

Jim, I completely agree that Obama is an arrogant ass, but he's a skilled politician and is clobbering Republicans on every issue. He sets these traps and predictable reps rush in....

They hate his arrogance so much they forget to play the game, they dig in their heels and take an absolute, unyielding stand on principal.Unfortunately, their principled stand will easily portrayed by Obama as obstructionist, mean, selfish, and totally beholding to the NRA.

It's a fight Republicans can't win, so why the hell pick it?

With a nation in shock and a back drop of little children who wrote letters from their trauma, Obama's proposals are not going to be seen by most people as a President trying to take people's guns away....He will be seen as a man who cares and is at least trying to do something about a problem.

Republicans on the other hand will be the bad guys who refuse to even consider "common sense" gun laws.

I say instead of just saying HELL NO!,Reps should have come up with their own list of changes, loopholes in existing laws that could / should be changed, thereby looking reasonable, and doing what people say they want government to do, work together for the good of the nation. We all know Obama is using a tragedy for political gain, but he will come off looking reasonable, and republicans, like a special interest tool.

It's too late perception is reality. Reps have been cast the bad guy, riding around on black NRA horses, while Obama will ride in on his white horse and show the world that he's not going to allow kids to be shot while a do-nothing congress plays politics...


Jim McAllister said...

Sam,

We have so much wishful thinking against this tyrant that sometimes we read things incorrectly hoping they will come true.

It's hard to believe this guy is President of the United States. I just keep hoping that a lot of people wake up one of these days and see him for what he is.

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

You make good points but sometimes I think I see the veneer cracking on this guy.

It's hard to believe that most people are so dumb that they won't be able to see the con job being handed them with the little kids on the podium. It's like a bad "B" movie.

What about the gun owners who are union guys? They have supported him for president but now he is screwing with their guns; the things they love to go hunting with. It seems like his support would weaken there.

This guy is also the most arrogant and controversial president we have had. I think a lot of people are getting weary of him.

He is doing executive orders as though he is some kind of royalty. That has to have some negative effect eventually. In fact, he is already taking some heat on that subject.

What is boils down to is that the killings will continue because if some guy wants to get a gun and start spraying bullets in a crowed room, he will still be able to do it because there are still going to be lots of guns and ways to get them.

It reminds of what a salesman told me in a London clothing store in 1986. I told him it was nice to be able to find a certain suit there because they were hard to get in the States. His reply was "Sir, you can get ANYTHING in London."

We shall see.

midnightsstaff said...

Think he has no Achilles heel?

So what picture comes to mind when you think of like minded tyrants like Mussolini or Hitler?
The weakest link in the equation with any true dictator is found in his media support..
Our problem lies with the gutless Repulipukes who are afraid of their own shadow.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, I keep trying to get Deb to take the gun with her when she goes out at night. So far no luck.

Better to have a gun and not need it than not have a gun and need it.

midnightsstaff said...

I would carry a claymore mine if I had one.. there is just no such thing as having too much protection.

But Deb is lucky she lives in Arizona.. because in Arizona evil people really have no idea which one bites or is a prime victim.

A weapon is no substitute for common sense, a lot of personal safety has to do with one's degree of situational awareness..
Criminals look for ditzzy women who are so self absorbed or yakking on the phone as to allow him into her space unnoticed..

90 percent of fish are caught by 10 percent of the fishermen, same thing with lots of things.
Sometimes victims are repeat offenders- they are like magnets to criminals.

midnightsstaff said...

I think I have told you before Jim but I am convinced the real reason for all this theater is to hopefully save his sorry ass from a Bengazi impeachment and their realization that the complete collapse of the entire Western economy is too close for them to face with a population that will not be looking for free phones but something to eat.

An armed population Jim- that is the ultimate fear of every dictator- having an armed population.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxvjPnZAaMo

This is a utube video that describes a once beautiful country called Rhodesia that was turned into a hellhole of oppression called Zimbabwe by Mugabi.

It's exactly what this African communist wants to do to America and he knows full well he can't do it with an armed population.

Without Divine Intervention we will have civil war.

midnightsstaff said...

Too bad we can't post pictures.. I got a great one with some flaxen haired St.Pauli girl type beer wench chugging a picture of suds..

Somehow today it seems an appropriate photo.

I'll send you the link pm and see if you agree..

midnightsstaff said...

.."ATLANTA, Jan. 14, 2013– The Coca-Cola Company is reinforcing its efforts to work together with American communities, business and government leaders to find meaningful solutions to the complex challenge of obesity.

A two-minute video, titled “Coming Together,” debuts tonight on national cable news. The video encourages everyone to be mindful that all calories count in managing your weight, including those in Coca-Cola products and in all foods and beverages. Its purpose is to highlight some of the specifics behind the Company’s ongoing commitment to deliver more beverage choices, including low- and no-calorie options, and to clearly communicate the calorie content of all its products"

I wonder what new regulations, punitive taxation or political winds coming out of the district of corruption this is designed to counter?

I'm for boycotting all these corporations that fall to their knees over the demands of this nanny state administration.

Coca Cola is now joining the war on fighting obesity?- what's next, Colonel Saunders joining a movement demanding a balanced vegan diet?

Anyone go check on Rick? he seems to be missing.

Hey, who's up for some:

Assault Finger Control ?

PROUD said...

Stopping gun killings by limiting the size of clips....

Is like stopping obesity by limiting soda cup size to 16 ounces...

People so inclined will always get "seconds"....

midnightsstaff said...

No such thing as an assault rifle, and modern day clips are what is used to hold a roach..

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8C-CLsMRcA0

An assault is criminal action not a piece and a clip is what was used to load a M-1 battle rifle into a fixed capacity not a magazine..

We are allowing the media to mis define the terms and in doing so control the discussion, the topic is specious enough without allowing the media and the communist politicians to obfuscate and misrepresent the situation.

Magazines and semi automatic civilian compliant carbines are the actual definitions that should be used.

..another one that drives me nuts is when the idiot media refers to a "service revolver"- man is that dated.

military style battle rifles are already controlled and have never been used in a school shooting.

As long as the hammer is demonized the malicious, insane carpenter gets off scott free.

PROUD said...

My two cents?...MUCH ADOO ABOUT NOTHING?

As previously stated, I wish the right had waited until Obama's list was released before taking such a vocal stand against it...

Here is the list, no one is taking guns from anyone.

Now that the show is over,I firmly believe most Americans will see the measures as sensible and Obama as someone who is trying. Republicans will be viewed as obstructionists, bought and paid for by the NRA

Certainly there are items on this list republicans can support?...Why the hell didn't they wait to see what was proposed so they could have looked like they were part of a solution. Even if it's no real solution, they just handed Obama another BIG win....

1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.
2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.
3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.
4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.
5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.
6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.
7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.
8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).
9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.
10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.
11. Nominate an ATF director.
12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.
13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.
14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.
15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.
16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.
17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.
18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.
19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.
20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.
21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.
22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.
23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.



PROUD said...

BTW...anyone notice Obama now endorses armed guards in schools (number 18)

I guaranty he will reap the credit with the public, not the NRA who proposed it....

Republicans in their zeal to nail this guy on something / ANYthing.... are getting an ass whoopin!

midnightsstaff said...

So you think this is going to allay anyone's viewpoint of his real intentions?
haha. right John, the only ones excusing his lack of leadership is the ones hoping for a Venezuelan solution.

It's just another meaningless list of programs to enlarge the footprint and grow government.. every one of those specious demands have nothing to do with a solution.

No he has crossed the Rubicon on this issue and there is no walking it back now.. think I am wrong?, check out the NRA membership and long lines of people buying firearms solely because they instinctively know what a monstrous tyrant he is.

No one is looking at the Republicans like Christie for help any longer- by Summer the lines will be fully drawn.

Just tell me which of these proposals will actually prevent insane, drug addled people from killing victims?
The answer is none of them, because they are proposed as a top down attempt to control things that are uncontrollable at any level even if that was his goal.

People get killed in prisons all the time where there is ultimate control and forcing the medical community to act as gestapo informants is not going to work.

The discussion is not over kids getting killed it's about the government setting the table for a final solution- including genocide.

Just like when they came for the guns in Rhodesia- google it because it's all there in plain sight to see.
African dictators are not the same as socialists in Denmark.

PROUD said...

Jim...of course this list of government do's won't change a thing on gun violence...laws are something criminals and insane people do not obey.
Like almost every federal undertaking, this is little more than another feel-good measure designed to make people feel like their politicians are doing what they sent them to do, trying tho do right after a terrible wrong like Sandy Hook...

And that's my point, Obama is winning big in the public feel good department not so much by what he's actually doing...but the way he's doing it...And public perception and sentiment wins elections...

It seems to me it would have been far more productive for Republicans to have been a on the stage, kids and all, as a part of the meaningless dog and pony show,... shaking hands, kissing babies, as co-authors, after all the list is fairly benign and there are issues they could have agreed on, so why not agree, and take some of the credit with the public?

What in the world did they gain by screaming, jumping up and down, promising to disobey the orders, especially on orders they didn't even know? many of which they would agree with??? All they accomplished was adding another coat or two of "party of no" paint, with the same brush that Obama has been using for four years....

They keep getting painted like this, it may never wash off. Time to start playing Obama's game....The game's called politics...

midnightsstaff said...

So you want them to be the wheel man over this illegality? isn't that exactly what happened to them earlier this month by agreeing to taxing the rich?

Your lawyer cannot testify against you or disclose anything about your criminal behavior but now he wants your doctor to be threatened by imprisonment if they don't?- please...

Yeah, maybe having a Speaker in tears on the stage might appeal to the low information voter or a lukewarm vitchy Republican who actually entertains the thought a godless tyrant can be reasoned with.

No the Republicans have intentionally taken themselves out of the issue, it's up to the men in this nation to deal with him- there is no reason for a second socialist party.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2013/01/15/nra-ad-calls-obama-elitist-hypocrite-for-daughters-security-detail-at-school/

The American people have to finally understand he means them when he talks about taxes and he means them when he talks about gun ownership and he means them when he talks about sacrifice.

Bitter clingers.. remember?

Keep in mind for the past twenty plus years this nation has engaged in continual war all over the mid east, they have trained millions of Real Americans in the art of war..

Most of those ex troops probably have guns and understand guerrella tactics, that is the real reason for that ridiculous memo by HLS claiming they are all potential domestic terrorists.

They have planned for this moment for years thinking that we will obey.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

Benghazi has been on the back burner for months now. Whether it's Hillary's head or whatever, they keep coming up with excuses to delay it.

I hate top say it because it's obvious there is something wrong there but a hearing will probably never happen.

The crook in the WH will see to that.

Jim McAllister said...

She is definitely a dish. Apparently they are cheapening the foreign suds because of cost.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

Rick was last seen passed out beside a '52 Ford pickup with an empty 2 liter coke bottle on the ground next to him.

It is ridiculous the way these companies suck up to O but that is the climate we have now sickening as it is.

Big brother is watching.

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

Can you imagine the calamity if those kids were using cap guns?

How about a nice game of "cops and robbers?"

I feel sorry for the kids with all these Obama experiences regulating their lives. It used to be fun playing those games.

I have a feeling something is going to happen with this stuff and the gun regulations going on. If they thought the violence is bad before, wait until the nuts try to prove that no damn Obama rules are going to stop them from violence.

Liberals are the dumbest asses on Earth. They actually think some dummy can get up and tell people what to do and they will do it.

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

As I type this comment some guy is plotting to shoot up a school, shopping mall, etc. simply because he wants to defy those rules and show how easy it was to do.

It's all just french pastry from a president who has a ego as big as all outdoors.

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

I agree that all the Obama stuff is worthless and the Repubs are acting on impulse. It's hard not to.

The advantage the Repubs have is that they have a lot of numbers on this of people that are violently angry.

I expect some incidents to occur especially in rural areas. Right or wrong those people don't want to hear a guy like Obama telling them right from wrong.

Plus, those guys usually are pretty good shots! LOL

midnightsstaff said...

What the monster really wants through executive suggestion
# 17......"Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities" - is to create an atmosphere of snitches either working for a cash reward or through threatening their licenses for non compliance.

Sounds similar to the creed the young pioneers who turned in their parents and associations for supposed crimes against the state in Lennin's USSR we used to study in High School civics.

He should have been laughed off the stage for being the fool he represents- and twenty years ago he would have.

"Whenever destroyers appear among men, they start by destroying money, for money is men's protection and the base of a moral existence.
Destroyers seize gold and leave to its owners a counterfeit pile of paper. This kills all objective standards and delivers men into the arbitrary power of an arbitrary setter of values.
Gold was an objective value, an equivalent of wealth produced.
Paper is a mortgage on wealth that does not exist, backed by a gun aimed at those who are expected to produce it.
Paper is a check drawn by legal looters upon an account which is not theirs: upon the virtue of the victims.
Watch for the day when it bounces, marked: 'Account overdrawn.'"
- Ayn Rand

That day is fast approaching when the economy collapses, if there are weapons available to Americans he will inevitably lose and he knows it.
forget the Repubicans, they are in on it.

Jim McAllister said...

Great clip with Larry Pratt and I agree. It's kind of like Obama's wife forcing schoolkids to eat small amounts of crappy food while her private school brats are sucking down cream of mushroom soup and pizza.

She and Obama bring new definition to "Hypocrites."

midnightsstaff said...

Don't cry for me Argentinnnnna...

The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence

Don't keep your distance

Have I said too much?
There's nothing more I can think of to say to you
But all you have to do is look at me to know that
Every word is true!

Just listen to that! The voice of Argentina!
We are adored! We are loved!
Statesmanship is more than entertaining peasants
We shall see little man

Evita Peron! La Santa Peronista!

Ha.. I bet the citizens of Argentina wish they only had the Peron's back stealing from them.. the new gangster/socialist Kirchner is a real piece of work.
Once you accept the concept of totalitarianism into your life you can never look back.

As Nietzsche said, madness in individuals is rare, but in whole societies, it is the norm.

Mike Slater said...

#16, I my doctor asks me if I have guns in my home I'll tell him it's none of his damn business.

Since the shootings at Sandy Hook the NRA has gained 250,000 new members and gun and ammunition sales are going through the roof.

a guy gets beat down with tire irons and bats in one of the sanctuary cities and someone cell phone recording the incident says:
“I started screaming for someone to call the police,” said a 25-year-old woman who captured the incident on video. “It was hard to watch.”

I bet it was hard to watch I've seen violent acts happen on a yard a few times and it's not pretty.

ahemmm!!... if someone watching this attempted murder go down had a Glock peacemaker instead of a phone camera or a 15 oz drink maybe the guy might not be a vegetable the rest of his life if he survives- thank God that fool mayor has passed even stricter gun prohibition..

The problem is not yours mike, after a while there will be a quota required for information on their patents, any doctor not up to "universal standards" streaming that information will have trouble maintaining their license and possibly fall under the watchful eye of HLS or the IRS.

Despite police urging her to take him home and “try him out for a couple of weeks,” her denials continued. Authorities determined she had lost her mind, and locked her up"

Trust me you probably have never heard a doozy like this one that happened in Mira Loma before- The Changeling was supposed to be based on this tale, there a cinema reference to keep me in good graces.
Of course it happened in Clownafornia!

CINCINNATI Strikes again!—A former high school teacher is accusing school district administrators of discriminating against her because of a rare phobia she says she has: a fear of young children.
Maria Waltherr-Willard, 61, had been teaching Spanish and French at Mariemont High School in Cincinnati since 1976.

You can't make this type of stuff up Jim, Sat. Night Live can't compete with the news, Will Rogers was right.

.."Many critical infrastructure control systems run on Windows XP and Windows 2000, operating systems that were designed more than a decade ago. They have "auto run" features enabled by default, which makes them an easy target for infection because malicious software loads as soon as a USB is plugged into the system unless operators change that setting, Clarke said."

How's them apples?- we have major power plants running a 2006-9 platform.. what do they spend all the money on... hookers and whisky?

Hi Jim,

This foolishness is a load of Ultra Liberal crap. There is no such thing as Gun Control!

I am not al that great with tools, but even I can with simple instruction convert just about any automatic to accept expanded capacity ammunition clip: the necessary technology can be found on the web.

What we desperately need is an accurate well reported data base of those most likely to commit mass atrocities. But the Liberal psychiatric Community is loath to produce such because of - patient privacy.

Instead, they want to disarm everyone.

Like the criminal or insane cannot find such weapons elsewhere.

Remember Prohibition? They thought they could stop people from finding booze.

Will these Liberal bastards ever learn? I think not!

Yeah.. patient confidentiality has to be maintained in the psychiatric community so as to not stir things up yet your family doctor is supposed to report anything under "see something, say something" concerning firearms..

It's time to end basketball in America, clearly there is just too much of a chance some legal gun owner or a NRA member will take matters in their own hands and start shooting.

If we can prevent just one tragedy it will be worth it says Joe Biden, the man who is one heartbeat from the presidency..

I think your above statement says it all. Obama is such a fool in general but he is a master at working the room.

We have a idiot cartoonist here who portrays Obama every day as some sort of savior or god. He doesn't see that the guy is the king of the photo-ops.

Bringing those kids in was the topper and really gets his followers to cry and whine like all lily livered liberals do.

It's all about human nature with the guy. He knows how to tug the heartstrings of the fools.

I look for another shooting any day now. Some nut is laughing at these silly orders from Obama and is loading his weapon as we speak just to show that he can shoot people anytime he wants.

If someone wants a gun, there will ALWAYS be a way to get one. It's the world that is nuts; not the guns.

Jim McAllister said...

Good one p,

I haven't heard that yet!

.."Clownifornia teens could submit paperwork to get on the state's voter rolls three years before they are allowed to cast a ballot under legislation introduced in the state Senate this week.

Senate Bill 113, by Democratic Sen. Hannah-Beth Jackson, would allow Californians to "pre-register" to vote at age 15, giving the state the nation's youngest minimum age for submitting an affidavit of registration.

While the pre-registrants would not be able to vote until they turned 18, the Santa Barbara Democrat said she hopes the change would increase the state's active voter population by linking the "positive experience" of getting a learner's permit at the Department of Motor Vehicles with registering to vote. Teens could also use the state's new online registration system under the measure, which is sponsored by Secretary of State Debra Bowen.

"I see this as an opportunity to encourage teens to make sure they register to vote when they go out and register to get their learner's permit," Jackson said. "We really need to have people at all ages voting and voting in large numbers, and it also encourages more lifelong engaged voters so we end up with a vibrant and healthy democracy."

maybe it would be a good idea to have Mexican Nationals register at 15 as well.

I guess they have to put on some silly act to make it look like this stuff will stop. It's a waste of time.

So, what's next when the next shooting happens? That shooter will really get some press since it is after all this current bullshit from Obama.

Maybe all kids should start wearing bullet proof vests and carrying their own fire power.

midnightsstaff said...

Don't mention to your doctor that you sometimes are three or four days off most of the time, he will have to report that to HLS so they can come over and take the sharp instruments, baseball bats, tire irons, steak knives, insecticides, golf clubs, large rocks in the back yard, five gallon buckets, pillows, barbecue grill propane tanks, claymore mines, rocket launchers, keys to your car and firearms away..

they might want to interview this "Tinkerbell" you include as a dependent on your tax forms for her opinon of your mental health.

haha.. sorry I am just giddy today over the great news that since yesterday school shootings are a thing of the past.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, Obama and Biden are probably hoping for another mass shooting. Their theme is never let a good crisis go to waste.

All this talk from Obama and the liberals about respecting the 2nd amendment and gun owners rights is nothing but BS.

His goal is to turn this country into another European socialist state.

PROUD said...

Jim, in keeping with the blog theme,(Lesson Learned?) I sure hope Republicans will learn from their mistakes on the upcoming debt ceiling talks.

Past Republican attempts to pressure and force Obama to agree to spending cuts and entitlement reforms or face a shut down have done nothing except make Reps look bad. Obama has used their willingness(well intentioned as they may be) to halt the government to portray Reps as reckless, tea-party owned, willing to shut down the country, put the economy at risk, all for some meaningless (because in the end, they always cave), political statement....

So successful has been the Rep. vilifying that people no longer see Obama's irresponsible spending, they simply see mean Republicans, playing that same ol game, trying to hurt Obama at any cost, crashing the markets, keeping soldiers from getting paid, and of course, the gold standard of scare tactics...preventing the elderly from getting their S/S checks.This scare stuff works!

I say take a new tack....simply give Obama what he wants, agree to raise the spending limit (because they know they will wind up doing so anyway, and Obama has and will call their bluff) while simultaneously, and repeatedly warning people that they are going along with what we believe to be an irresponsible act only because we do not want to harm the economy, and this is in fact what President Obama wants.

Then get to work and really use the one branch of congress they control, cranking out bill after serious bill proposing intelligent, responsible, solutions for the nations ills, debt, and entitlement reforms....

In other words, act like adults while Putting the burden and eventual blame on the Senate and President Obama.

IF, they choose the exact same path they have already traveled (and tripped badly on), I can think of one saying:

The definition of insanity is doing the....well, you know...

midnightsstaff said...

.."Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the House Budget Committee chairman and erstwhile GOP vice presidential candidate, told reporters at House Republicans' retreat that members were "discussing the virtue of a short term debt limit extension."
Ryan elaborated that the idea would be to raise the nation’s borrowing authority for a few months and tie the matter into discussions with the White House and Senate on the other fiscal issues facing the country, such as the automatic spending cuts associated with the sequester and how to fund the government in the next fiscal year."

So someone please tell me why Paul Ryan shouldn't be impeached.

midnightsstaff said...

And by the way mike, it's not a question of if, it's when the next one happens..

Schools remain as free fire... ehr.. I mean "gun free" zones so it stands to reason they will continue to be magnets.

I remember when I moved to Arizona how shocked I was to see citizens carrying weapons even tho I have been around them all my life and firearms were a tool of my trade.

Can you imagine some weiner from New Yawk or Da Joisey seeing some guy walk into Fry's legally carrying?
He/she/it might run screaming from the Adult diapers display right out of the store..

Thoughtful gun laws create a polite citizenry. it's been proved again and again.

A clown like Paul Ryan gets one chance from me.. evidently he is just another bullshitting politician.

One strike and a quisling like him is out in my world- I don't have time for two faced phonies.

I got Nick's college financial problems ironed out today, so he can get an education and cure cancer or something. Now I know how real parents feel. Bills went unpaid, but it's for the good of the economy ... the good of America ... (cue Star Spangled Banner and hot dancing chicks) ... for it is only if we stick together, rich and poor, ugly and gorgeous, dumb and smart, can we get back to doing the shit we used to do in a free America. We like our drug addicted celebrities. We like our occasional mass murders. We are Americans and by God, we're always right, even when we're wrong!

Damn, I should be video taping this.

Rick Kepple said...

To be quite serious, that young man protecting his wife and child, did everything he could to avert conflict. Anonymous has obviously never been around dangerous drunken people. Things can go wrong, real damn fast! It sounds like he did the right thing, but those people retreated to throwing rocks again. That's what excessive alcohol does to the brain.

I've had people do that to me. When I was on the morphine, people threatened to burn my house down. They threw rocks at me. I finally challenged them. I wrote letters to get the self-defense laws changed so I didn't go to jail for protecting myself from garbage like that!

The kid did the right thing. Had he shot the others, especially in the back, he'd be in jail. The law is clear.

You are to use only the force necessary to stop the attack. No warning shots since that is a threat. No showing them the gun, since that is a threat. Just halt, start a dialogue if possible and if not, take appropriate action.

Had the three killed the man, raped the kid and killed the wife, it would have been headline news and President Obama would be calling for stronger gun laws.

The fact is, Jimmy, that if Big Brother were actually watching us, Sandy Hook would have never happened. Therefore, either they allowed it to happen or it's a psychological game and they're trying to use BS to disarm us. Either way, the government is not helping us.

I guess that's why dogs are man's best friend, they don't discriminate on any subject- cats on the other hand hold everyone in utter contempt and have so ever since they domesticated us.

The whole Republican party needs a good fumigation to get rid of the vichy quislings and outright frauds like Christie.

midnightsstaff said...

Found on the net...

In Plain English

So Obama released his Executive Orders to Prevent Maniacs From Being Maniacs today. I’ve taken the time to translate the summaries into plain English below:

1. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal agencies to make relevant data available to the federal background check system.
Tell the government to follow the law.

2. Address unnecessary legal barriers, particularly relating to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, that may prevent states from making information available to the background check system.
Tell the regulators to stop the stupid and useless regulations.

3. Improve incentives for states to share information with the background check system.
Pay the states back for the unfunded mandates that the Feds keeps making.

4. Direct the Attorney General to review categories of individuals prohibited from having a gun to make sure dangerous people are not slipping through the cracks.
Tell the Attorney General to do his job.

5. Propose rulemaking to give law enforcement the ability to run a full background check on an individual before returning a seized gun.
Start another unfunded mandate. (See #3.)

6. Publish a letter from ATF to federally licensed gun dealers providing guidance on how to run background checks for private sellers.
Tell FDLs how to do something no one is ever going to bother to do.

7. Launch a national safe and responsible gun ownership campaign.
Do the same thing the NRA already does, only half as well at twice the cost.

8. Review safety standards for gun locks and gun safes (Consumer Product Safety Commission).
Do what Underwriters Laboratories already does, only half as well at twice the cost.

9. Issue a Presidential Memorandum to require federal law enforcement to trace guns recovered in criminal investigations.
Tell the Feds to do their jobs.

10. Release a DOJ report analyzing information on lost and stolen guns and make it widely available to law enforcement.
Tell the DOJ to do its job.

11. Nominate an ATF director.
Tell myself to do my job.

12. Provide law enforcement, first responders, and school officials with proper training for active shooter situations.
Spend more money.

13. Maximize enforcement efforts to prevent gun violence and prosecute gun crime.
Tell everyone to do their goddamned jobs.

midnightsstaff said...

14. Issue a Presidential Memorandum directing the Centers for Disease Control to research the causes and prevention of gun violence.
Tell the doctors to figure out why it isn’t the feds’ fault that they aren’t doing their jobs.

15. Direct the Attorney General to issue a report on the availability and most effective use of new gun safety technologies and challenge the private sector to develop innovative technologies.
Figure out a way to push “smart guns” that don’t exist and wouldn’t be useful as guns if they did.

16. Clarify that the Affordable Care Act does not prohibit doctors asking their patients about guns in their homes.
Tell everyone that Obamacare doesn’t actually mean what it says.

17. Release a letter to health care providers clarifying that no federal law prohibits them from reporting threats of violence to law enforcement authorities.
Tell everyone that, seriously, Obamacare doesn’t actually mean that. We had to pass it to find out what was in it, after all.

18. Provide incentives for schools to hire school resource officers.
Tell everyone that I’ve been a partisan hack for the last month every time I said the NRA was crazy to want to post more cops in schools.

19. Develop model emergency response plans for schools, houses of worship and institutions of higher education.
Do the same thing that every police agency in the country has already done, only half as well and at ten times the cost.

20. Release a letter to state health officials clarifying the scope of mental health services that Medicaid plans must cover.
Tell doctors what they already know.

21. Finalize regulations clarifying essential health benefits and parity requirements within ACA exchanges.
Tell people what the parts of Obamacare don’t say anything.

22. Commit to finalizing mental health parity regulations.
Tell HHS to do their job.

23. Launch a national dialogue led by Secretaries Sebelius and Duncan on mental health.
Hand the rest of the job of telling everyone to do their jobs off to someone else so it is no longer my job.

Mike Slater said...

Middy, Christie is nothing more than a RINO like McCain and Graham. I left the Republican Party 10 years ago because of RINO's.

Christie lost all credibility with me when he said he was against concealed carry laws.

I wish those guys would just join the Democrat Party and quit pretending they're conservatives.

midnightsstaff said...

I'm right there with ya. I have a better feeling now though than I have had since the election..

It looks like maybe the NRA has seen the light on trying to play the politics of the issue and support is coming back in..

http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Journalism/2013/01/17/Media-Ignore-NRA-and-its-ideas-as-popular-as-obama

I think I am going to contribute to them again because they are actually saying the right things very publicly and backing honest dialogue to educate the base instead of trying to leverage the issue politically.

I think this might work out better than I expected, Obama has no clue of the real America, they might be bunch of low information Homer and Marge Sixpacks but this is personal now and they are starting to put two and two together over his true objective, at least I have hope they do.

When civil war breaks out what's the chances of getting Israeli support taking back the nation?
Tyrants always overlook the fact that guerrilla tactics work very well when they have means to fight, the commitment and friendly support, and after all this will be a war for Israel's future as well as our nation.

.."That 21 (23) point plan or whatever it was, was hollow. It was a gutted version of what he was hoping to do as recently as a few days ago. Instead, he had to roll over and made a weak threat to Congress but that threat starts in the Senate and they already told him to shut up. Obama backed off. He lost this time, and it was all because of the American people. His media will try to spin it as something different, and if he gets another chance, the president will be right back to pushing for confiscation, but for now, we won this particular fight."

I actually did donate a three year membership to the NRA just a little while ago and probably am going to do the same with GOA.. politicians are not interested in our rights whatsoever, they are only interested in their own re election.

Rick Kepple said...

If I'm right, the government will eventually round up some of you folks, and the media will say it is necessary. But that probably won't be for 20 years.

I'd say that between now and 2025, the government will have to confiscate the firearms as a requirement to join the New World Order.

President Bush already fulfilled some requirements. President Obama created the national healthcare.

You see, to run the global government, you got to show that you can control your own country. We gotta look purty too. And happy.

Jimmy, you don't look happy. None of you do, but just smile and say "Food Stamps!" cause Facebook is teaching people socialism.

Well, the VA's pills did their work, but my pleasant thought will be that in the end, as I'm taking my last breath, a woman will realize her mistake. Money isn't everything, but people say a lot of shit that isn't true. Money IS everything in this shitty world.

midnightsstaff said...

Wise counsel from one who never learned the difference between money and wealth.
Public schools have really done this nation a disservice the past few decades.

Wealth is a concept Rick, money is merely government created fiat script.

Honest wealth accumulation requires knowledge, there is just no quick way around it, the laws are specific and inflexible.
..and I might add those who have achieved a measure of it deserve to keep it and no man should ever be allowed to confiscate another's property without due legitimate and legal cause.

..it's been said that if all property was equally distributed within two generations the same people would hold the same amount they did.

But there is a greater wealth Rick, the wealth of idea, and that idea in our past has always been one of opportunity, now dreams are only thought possible through winning the lotto, hard work is the anathema of the government mindset- they punish achievement every chance they get.

Eventually the cancer of national sloth will finally erode the economy past the point of saving and it will come to some dismal end.

The ultimate result of shielding
men from the effects of folly is
to fill the world with fools.

Philosopher (1820-1903)

Anyone with a brain can see what a conniving SOB Obama is with his threats about government shutdowns and checks not being sent out, etc.

Why don't the Republicans get some face time and stand up to the jerk instead of doing everything behind closed doors?

It seems to me if they showed on a national stage what a phony Obama is with his threats, they would get more notice. Instead they just sit there and take it while the public praises Obama.

I guess I just don't understand that mentality of politics.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

The Reps keep giving in to the guy. What the hell is wrong with Ryan? They need to get on TV and make a stand against Obama. The more they back down the more they will lose. I can't understand their mindset.

PROUD said...

Jim, for Republicans to stand up to Obama on the debt ceiling, they have to be prepared to make good on shutting down government, for which they will be summarily crucified in the media. First rule in offering demands..."never take a hostage, you can't (or are unwilling to) shoot. This would be more of the same ol, bluff until the deadline then cave, and come off worse for the effort.

I think you nailed it when you said,"anyone with a brain" most of the nation decides their politics on emotion, not brain and logic, here's a video asking people how they liked Obama's inauguration, even though it hasn't happened. They loved it, and they love him, so much that this non existent event brought a tear to their eyes:

Yes, unfortunately they are and also unfortunately, dumb asses like that tend to be Democrats.

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

You're right, the Reps need to stand up to him. He gets the masses churned up with stuff like "no government checks" and that kind of crap.

Instead of facing him down they whine and say nothing. I think one reason is they would rather try to save their cushy government job that stir things up and get something meaningful done to help their constituents

Rick Kepple said...

I saw an Obamaphone once. A real one. Nick got it with like 10 minutes of time on it. It was a joke.

Most employers prefer doing three interviews these days for hiring as little as a janitor. It's insane to think that a cellphone with a few minutes on it will get anyone a job.

Years ago, when I was trying to get this job as a phone survey dude for Bayliner boats, the first interview was about an hour on the phone. Then there was the typing test and I write 100 words a minute on a bad day.

After I got the job, I was called into the office and the supervisors asked me straight up, "So, how long have you known ..." and they've got tape.

I worked for McDonalds once. The bottom of the barrel. So some 18-year-old girl asked me out. She was one of the supervisors at that phone survey company ...

so just imagine ... employers these days hiring teenagers as supervisors, because they don't need to know anything anyway! But that's the job market! If you're my age, you're "UNEMPLOYABLE" cause employers can get a kid to do any job. Two minutes of training ... Congratulations Mr. President!

Proud,

The only possible reason I can see for putting on the hat is to make it look like he is in a hurry to go out and take care of your case.

It looks like it was made with a handheld camera and the voice over sounds like he is in a tank.

Remember when lawyers were old guys in three piece suits with a gold watch chain across the vest?

They were always in wood paneled offices and spoke distinguished.

Now it's a store front business.

Rick... if the clown couldn't get the economy going and in fact has made things much worse, what made anyone think four more years would be any improvement?

Are you sitting down?- this economy is going to get a whole lot worse before he is done with this term, you can't print eighty five billion dollars a month in future debt and expect the non existent velocity of that fiat money to have any impact- it's just going to bankers to buy back their bad paper.

For some odd reason even intelligent people I talk to can't make the grasp that this is a trillion dollars extra a year on top the spending he wants and who is going to have the debt at over 20 trillion by the end of his term.
a P.O.S. who says we don't have a spending problem.

Goldman Sachs is saying 150 oil by Summer, they don't predict, they make things happen- and that price of oil will bring things to a real slowdown.
Electricity is going up, food prices are going up, gas will go up- you are locked in the cargo of a plane that is going down just like the rest of us.

So I went to the site that Proud advertised. The Youtube without the period. And I'm sharing it. This is the SHARE address given for the same video from Youtube.

http://youtu.be/0fn4X0SMmVw

By the way, Proud's video ... "is currently unavailable."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fn4X0SMmVw

The video won't work without that dot. I reloaded it with the address the Share gave and it worked. I used the address that Proud gave and it didn't work.

So I asked a computer tech about it.

"Without the dot, the video won't work. It's part of the programming language!"

So pick your video. Maybe you can get both of them to work.

Thanks for watching my video, Jim, but there are three cats in that video, not one. However, one is the mother chasing the daughter and the son lives in the house. The others are feral cats.

But I'm delusional. It's probably just one cat. Jim's right. I'm wrong.

And that's the world, folks. Jimmy, so how's the song and dance coming along? Is this blog working for ya?

Rick Kepple said...

There is a story in the Springfield Mo. News Leader concerning some development that is going bankrupt and they are costing Greene County Missouri millions of dollars.

A bank loan officer told me yesterday that my property isn't selling because of red tape. As it turns out, there are only two lenders loaning money for that tiny little red tape. And there's red tape on top of red tape on top of red tape. I don't even qualify to buy my own farm!

And our business is run by a delusional writer who is, as it turns out, "autistic" and delusional. Mentally retarded. Army veteran. A computer tech, Navy, having had two heart attacks and stints. And a college kid music artist.

It's funny how the old geezers want to work and the kid wants to make college into a career choice.

We figured that if we made some videos, maybe someone in the entertainment industry might like what we do and we'd get jobs. Nope.

I'm blacklisted. Poison. But officially, it's from my disabilities, so paid to be unemployable. It's a living.

Ya know it just struck me as to how many military bases are in red states..

Off topic but the S&P volatility index took an 8 percent prat fall today and is now under the 13 dollar line in the sand,
These lying SOB's are simply magnificent thieves but the law of gravity and the laws of economics rule supreme in the end and it's just a matter of putting off the inevitable.

I think the economy is like that kid with no brakes on the bicycle peddling downhill for everything he's worth being chased by Rottweillers.

Rick Kepple said...

What's really funny is that the pride of a rock star is going to destroy the rich and I think it's funnier than hell. After all, you did it to yourselves.

Y'all told me that I was delusional and you worked very hard at it. You couldn't have done better if you worked for President Obama, yourselves. Congratulations. He played Stevie Nicks like a harp and you guys were the jaw.

The way to shut up a journalist who could derail tyranny would be to use MK Ultra psychological techniques to make the writer so delusional on drugs that no one will believe him. The rock star knows me. You people made damn sure that my information looked unreliable.

She let this happen. Dig it, Jimmy. What's the tax rate now for rich folks?

Here's the part that I love.

When they're done, in about 12 years, they're gonna get rid of the entertainers. It's not really in line with Sharia Law.

And to think, that her pride destroyed America in 1981. That's when it really started.

Train your kids now to learn which direction Mecca is, so they can play the game in a few generations.

Hope and change.

You better pray that Jesus isn't a delusion.

PROUD said...

Rick, it's true that using the share button instead of cut / paste the URL inserts a dot ....it is also true that virus's are known to be hiding in any youtu.be URL's. Here's one story:

http://listofscams.blogspot.com/2011/07/youtube-links-hackvirus-alert.html

I (and I'm assuming Jim because he commented) am able to open the youtube.com link w/o problem. The fact that you can not open it suggest you MAY have a virus in your computer. I would suggest you go to

www.malwarebytes.com,

download the free version and do a complete scan. Their programs are excellent at detecting virus's that regular anti-virus programs like Norton miss.

As to your other insane ramblings:

1.no rock star had anything to do with tax increases on the rich....long before S/N tax rates. were 90%

2.your farm not selling has less to do with "red tape" and more to do with the farmstead not being "enchanted" enough

3. Making terrible, boring, meaningless videos, then dumping them onto a site with zillions of others where they are lost, isn't a good plan to getting jobs for three guys...

4. I suspect that what goaty whoatie really says is: "my turn to be on top"

Get some help....

midnightsstaff said...

Glad you mentioned Malwarebytes, it's one of those crucial utilities I use every day along with Crap Cleaner and Piriform Defraggler..

your proxy settings can cause conflicts as well, another mystery of cyber traveling..

I managed to get corrupted files about a month ago (virus infection) through unloading a "down loader" app for online football games and had to spend a few hours sweeping my processor in safe mode.. entirely my fault on that one.

I normally am as suspicious as a Jew at the fish market but wanting to watch a non televised Packer game I forgot the basics.

Proud, I don't have a virus on my computer.

I'm not screwing up my computer because some guy on a website that has been known to be my enemy gives me advice. I'd rather trust the Chinese or Russians.

I Googled what you said. The "dot" in Youtube being a virus and there is NO SUCH THING. Doesn't exist.

My company's computer tech said you're full of it.

SHOW ME evidence, Proud. Show me the documentation that says there is a virus like that. I want the web address and names with phone numbers that I can call.

I don't believe a word you say, Proud. You're a professional liar and you wonder why I don't believe you.

If Proud says once more that my Youtube video has a virus, WHILE Proud also CLAIMS to be a computer expert, I'm going to laugh my fricking ass off.

C'mon. Say it ... once more ... but with FEELING, Proud!

Proud, I'm not even gonna show you the page as to WHY there is a "dot" in Youtube. You've attacked me over and over, because of Stevie Nicks.

Proud. The dumbest computer pro in the world. If anyone is listening to this nitwit, you're as stupid as he is.

Twitter, dumbass. It's got a "dot" because of fricking Twitter.

Proud, how are you that rich and that stupid, simultaneously?

PROUD said...

rick, never claimed to be rich, or a computer expert...were you sane,(or literate) you would have noticed I ALREADY provided a link from June 2011...no listen slowly..."that's called a web address"

If you google the words... "youtu.be virus"...yourself, you will find lots of info on people hiding virues in the youtu.be URL, (BTW, the last two letters,(BE) are code for Belgum)

I never said all URL's with that dot are viruses,(me thinks you're listening to the voices again) I said, quite rightly,it MIGHT contain a virus. And, I wasn't attacking you...I was suggesting that IF, your computer would not open the standard www.youtube URL, but WOULD open the one with the dot,(your words) you MIGHT have a problem.

Also, other SANE folks know that malwarebytes is a legit virus, spy / malware removal tool, I suggested their FREE version because you pride yourself on being poor. You can google that company yourself to check and make sure I'm not a "professional liar" on S/N's payroll, setting a trap for some goat farmer....

Now that I look over what you wrote....I must say,unlike you... I have absolutely NO problem understanding how someone like you can be so poor and so stupid simultaneously...it's a gift...One you can't teach that!

Wise up, you're reading words that aren't there, seeing enemies that don't exist, and calling everyone else stupid or nuts....

Rick Kepple said...

Look man, I sent Jimmy's page to Youtube. There was no info on Google, but there is NOW as to WHY there is a "dot" in Youtube.

I don't understand computers. There's another Rick Kepple who teaches all that stuff in California and I don't understand it, but he does. I like him. He's smarter than me and meaner. A former pilot in the Air Force, I think.

Which reminds me, I need to let him know that someone wrote that he wants to have sex with Lindsey Buckingham. He's in California. It only makes sense that he's THAT Rick Kepple.

But hell, there are more. Some are lawyers. A whole bunch of "Rick Kepple's" who are just as fricking mean as I am. Quaint. I thought about talking to them all and forming a quorum to go after the scum. So "RIck Kepple" becomes an organization. Like Blackwater, only cooler.

"Hi, I'm Rick Kepple," and it's a secret organization. We all dress in gray suits. Code name: "You Know what Goaty Woaty says."

Bottom line, I pointed out something that COULD be a potential risk (on the very day when The Department Of Homeland Security was warning people about something as innocent looking as JAVA)...pointed it out NOT to disparage rick but to warn people so they could do their own due diligence, ( Cogita ante salis).

Likewise, tried to warn rick,(the one that posts HERE not the multitudes of other, just as mean), that he MIGHT have a problem if he couldn't open a normal youtube URL.

Somehow, he sees all that as some paid by S/N conspiracy and me as an enemy...?

And he wonders why we call him nuts?

Rick Kepple said...

Proud, you CAN'T get a virus from WATCHING a video! You were intentionally sabotaging my life.

Plus, you're from Scottsdale. If I wanted to get rid of someone, I'd make them live in Scottsdale.

midnightsstaff said...

Well the last time I talked to Stevie she said she was going to contact him and try to work things out but she just got tied up on that Laughlin gig that didn't go so well, had a religious epiphany and as a result finally realized he was just too damn good for her.

Same thing the Hot Chick said.. remember?

Jim has her and the new group over for hot Ovaltine and roasted marshmallows on Wednesday nights following the bible study at his house while she is not touring- she is his next door neighbor after all.

..**maybe I shouldn't have said that**..

Barb says Stevie is pleasant but sort of high strung and won't go near her pet raccoon, and that witchcraft thing is sort of odd especially since they are doing Megachurch gospel now.

There may be hope for those newly weds today but sadly technology came too late to save my marriage.

Tough to lose that one but I saw a lot of things I liked tonight, they just looked like they had no camp.

They might be wanting to showcase that Runblad to trade for a scoring center or just keep him he is going to be another good NHL level defense man.

It might take a couple of games to start clicking the system, tonight we saw no Tippet style hockey but believe me they will be playing Tippet style hockey soon.
And Smith doesn't have those type of games twice in a row usually.

Last year they got embarrassed by the Sharks their first game 6-3.

Jim McAllister said...

FOOTBALL, 1-20-13

49ers over Falcons in spite of home field advantage for Atlanta. Falcons have been scraping by, 49ers have too much with Kaepernick and Frank Gore.

Ravens over Patriots in an upset. Yes, the Pats are powerful and rarely lose at home but Baltimore has been quietly playing some nice football lately; especially last week against Indy. Flacco has quietly become a nice QB which could make an unexpected difference. Plus, Ray Lewis REALLY wants this one!

Jim McAllister said...

Good column Middy about the gun problems in Obamaville.

It's definitely a blue city problem when 67% of the murders are there.

Hey, How bout that new wig on Michelle. Isn't she a knockout? LOL

Jim McAllister said...

Proud,

I'm liking the 49ers to go all the way.

As much as I'd like to see the Ravens win I think a great SB would be 49ers and Patriots: Kaepernick and Gore vs. Welker and Brady.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

This season is a write off for me. Whoever wins will have an asterisk forever.

I never take Atlanta seriously, and honestly couldn't give a rat's ass over either of these games, what I do wonder about is why John Fox wasn't fired last Sunday before he got to the locker room..

Why pay Manning to take a knee instead of making him earn that paycheck?

In two weeks I think we are looking at the Pats and SF.. but then take look at my record so far without laughing, go ahead I dare you.

"Bodo Hospitality?"

That "bubble gun" story is typical of the loony liberal nonsense that is overtaking our society today.

Kids can't be kids anymore. Jeez, imagine what would happen to us if we reverted to our youth by playing cowboys and indians using cap guns that actually emitted a sound!

I think Obama is in trouble over this gun silliness. I notice his approval rating dropped 2 1/2 points over the last couple days per Real Clear.

I love that story from Middy about 67% of gun problems are in the Obama cities. I think all the red states should secede and leave the big O alone with his own kind.

midnightsstaff said...

Ya know, he might be sick of you too...

I'll say one thing this K-dog stuff is classic rags from riches and the NFL is working it for all it's worth for the next two weeks..

Imagine you are chatting up the cheerleaders, minding your own business and next thing happened you were putting on the best acting job of your life saying you hoped Smith wasn't hurt bad but knowing your qb taking that ride to the ER was putting you in the Superbowl..
divine intervention.
..hard for a backup like him not to smile when it happened and no one can tell me different.

Hope he at least gives Smith an autographed ball, and he ought to buy dinner and a night out for whoever it was that sent Smith packing.

Jim McAllister said...

If Smith has an injury but is able to dress, I'm sure the Cardinals will try to get him cheap.

Good luck to Arians. I see that Paola Boivin is already trying to make it a racial thing that Tony Horton didn't get the job.

She also thinks Gentry got canned from the Suns for the same reason.

She should be canned; she's a joke. When in doubt, pull the race card.

Rick Kepple said...

Proud, the phone company is coming today to work on the DSL. My computer tech proved that the problem is outside of the house and not the copper lines. And we also talked about viruses.

First, you CAN'T get a virus from just WATCHING a video on Youtube. However, if I download it, that's when you get a virus.

Facebook is filled with viruses, BUT if you have simple virus protection, that will get rid of them.

The other day, I was having a wonderful conversation about the hz range of the earth and it's the same as the hz of the human brain! However, if there is running water, like a river, nearby (the Gasconade) it will dramatically increase the brain's wavelength, theoretically resulting in faster thoughts. It has to do with magnetic fields.

In addition, according to the GPS one repairman had, I live on the highest point in the county and I have the strongest satellite signal, but because of the proximity to underground rivers and the Gasconade River, the iron ore in the ridge mess with the magnetic ley lines and they claim it messes with electronics and appliances.

The world is dangerous enough, without people spreading nasty rumors of my videos being carriers of some nonexistent virus, because someone doesn't like Twitter.

midnightsstaff said...

All hail the purple bird.
..ya got your wish Jim, but now Tom knows who to blame.

Ugly hockey being played right now, all over the league tho to be fair, this is what you see with absolutely no pre season games.
Point men losing the puck on the blueline on the power play, not playing the positional game and no forecheck.. it looked like a pick up game.

So skill guys like Hossa who didn't score a goal on us last year in the playoffs gets two last night.

I would hate to listen to what Dave Tippet has to say at this morning's skate.

Rick Kepple said...

President Obama is getting sworn in and there are millions of Americans swearing.

One media reporter on NBC said that Washington D.C. looks like a "police state" today. Prophetic words?

I sold that AR-15 two weeks before Sandy Hook happened. I bought an Epiphone SG. I can't fight a tank. It can't be done. I live near a military base and as a disabled vet, I believe that the prophecies in the Bible are actually strategic advice.

If you are on top of your roof when whatever it is happens, don't move. Think. Observe. Make a careful decision and don't get killed. This year is starting out way too good. Maybe it's going to be the perfect year, but there would be seven years of perfection, wouldn't there? Before all hell breaks loose.

That would be 2015.

Rick Kepple said...

Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest President Obama's swearing-in.

I guess they're saying that President Obama was elected because of homosexuality. That's their theme protesting funerals, right? So that's what they're saying.

http://www.examiner.com/article/westboro-baptist-church-plans-to-protest-president-obama-s-inauguration

So let me illustrate: There's a nutty church protesting in a place that NBC compared to a Police State.

Those people deserve one another.

midnightsstaff said...

That probably explains why most of the great institutions of higher learning were established in the proximity of a swift running underground river, to capture the cosmic forces allowing our brains to operate at maximum potential.

I think you are starting to make sense Rick.
yeah.. those extra couple of meters elevation probably means you get information sooner than anyone else around you does as well because the magic information rays from the satellite get there sooner..
shrewd..

I'm going out on a limb and predicting that in my lifetime that science will have mastered the technology of indoor plumbing allowing millions of greatly relieved people to finally shit indoors safely...

..except for in the Mideast.

Jim McAllister said...

I picked both winners yesterday. What else would you expect?

I looked at the SF-ATL game as a no brainer but Atlanta played well early and almost pulled it off.

Kaepernick still amazes me the way he has come off the bench to play the way he has. Having Crabtree and Gore doesn't hurt his chances either.

Who would have thought a guy from Nevada-Reno would walk into the NFL and own it like Kaepernick did?

I had a hunch on the NE-Baltimore game. The Ravens have been quietly getting better with no one really saying much about them. When they walloped Indy last week, I became a believer even though they had NE in NE.

Now Belichick has something to cry about under that damned hood!

Jim McAllister said...

Definitely a suck hockey game. We turned it off at 5-2.

It doesn't really matter to me as this season is a lost cause for the whole league.

As usual. they had a sellout but only because Chicago was here. From the cheering, one would think they were playing in Chicago.

If I was Jamison, I wouldn't buy that team unless I had a guarantee that Chicago, Detroit, Philly, etc. would stay in the league so they could have some attendance. Otherwise they are lucky if they draw 10,000.

midnightsstaff said...

Too many people last night were trying to do the pretty thing instead of the sensible thing... especially the defense..
There was absolutely no system to the game last night, and that will get fixed.

All of them were trying to make passes to set up break away plays instead of dumping the puck and grinding it out.
I would go to the practice today but I'm sensitive and can't tolerate the language their going to be exposed to.

Hockey the hard way.. ror! check your email..

.."Cargill Beef announced Thursday that it will idle one of its two West Texas meatpacking plants and lay off all 2,000 workers because of a tight cattle supply following years of drought.
The number of cattle in the U.S. has been dropping for years, but the pace accelerated during the past two years as ranchers in central and southwestern states sold off millions of animals they couldn't afford to feed after drought dried up pastures and sent the prices of hay and other feed skyrocketing. The slaughter began to slow in the fall as many ranchers tried to hold on to the relatively few cattle they had left.
Ranchers have said it will take years to rebuild their herds once the drought ends, and Cargill said it didn't expect business to rebound soon."

nothing to see, keep moving.

With 40 percent of our corn going to ethanol production even in a petroleum glut, food prices are going to skyrocket.

No joke Rick I hope you are successful beyond your wildest dreams, because that is the only way a fsa volunteer can ever learn the lessons only success can provide.

(talking to them is like talking to a fencepost)

Break a effin' leg big boy!, it's high time you learned a valuable lesson.

Jim...I sure wish there was a way to post pictures here, but since there isn't, you guy will have to imagine a photo of two, very young, very beautiful, well endowed and hanging out, college coeds....Now with that image firmly in mind

***PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING IMPORTANT WARNING TO MEN***

Women often receive warnings about protecting themselves at the mall and in dark parking lots, etc. This is the first warning I have seen for men. I wanted to pass it on in case you haven't heard about it.

A 'heads up' for those men who may be regular customers at Lowe's, Home Depot, Costco, or even Wal-Mart. This one caught me totally by surprise. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you or your friends.
Here's how the scam works; Two nice looking, college-age girls will come over to your car or truck as you are packing your purchases into your vehicle. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. (It's impossible not to look). When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say 'No' but instead ask for a ride to McDonald's.
You agree and they climb into the vehicle. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen Aug. 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, again on the 17th, 20th, 24th, and the 29th. Also Sept. 1st, 4th, 8th, twice on the 16th &17th, and very likely again this upcoming weekend.
So tell your friends to be careful. What a horrible way to take advantage of us older men. Warn your friends to be vigilant.
Wal-Mart has wallets on sale for $2.99 each. I found even cheaper ones for $.99 at the Dollar Store and bought them out in three of their stores.
Also, you never get to eat at McDonald's. I've already lost 11 pounds just running back and forth from Lowe's, to Home Depot, to Wal-Mart.
So please, send this on to all the older men that you know and warn them to be on the lookout for this scam.

May God watch over us older men!

BTW (The best times are just before lunch and around 4:30 in the afternoon.)

Check out fat ass- elbows propped on the table in the classic "guarded feeding" position, shoveling it as fast as possible and going back for seconds... all this with a brand new horse tail hat.

You tell me Maxine Waters has anything on this bitch, she's the whole package when it comes to uncouth tribal behavior.

Hey didn't the punk himself say "never get between her and a taco" or something?

I present to you..the first hog.

maybe someone should send them a set of sheets- something tells me he needs them.

Hey guys get a load of the Utah Sheriffs memo to the pant load..

http://www.utahsheriffs.org/USA-Home_files/2nd%20Amendment%20Letter.pdf

...pretty much standard "kiss my ass pal"- the kind of language he understands and only that type of spine does he respects.

Maybe Sheriff Joe will send him a box of flowers too.

Proud,

Damn! They got you 14 times; I thought I had the record at 10!

No fear though, I still have plenty of those 99 cent wallets. I bought a gross of them the last time I stopped by for my 99 cent reading glasses.

I'm down to a 32 inch waist and I still don't know what degree those girls are pursuing!

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

Yeah, I saw that clip today on Drudge. What a disgusting hog she is especially with that stupid ass wig.

I'm really disappointed in this country that someone like her and that jug eared bastard are running the show.

There has to be a payday on this and i hope I get to see it soon.

When i think of Nancy Reagan, Laura and Barbara Bush, and others it makes me want to puke.

Jim McAllister said...

Steve,

Good name for her.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

Suddenly I love Utah.

It looks like they are joining the many more constituencies around the country telling jug ears to stuff it where the sun don't shine.

I think he has taken himself way too serious this time in f---ing with people who have guns. The line has to be drawn somewhere and this may be it.

Maybe JE will tell dumb ass Biden that he can REALLY be Obama for a while.

midnightsstaff said...

The Missouri sheriffs told him the same thing.. looks like a trend.

When I read..
"A new piece in the Wall Street Journal reports that many colleges are cutting back on the number of hours worked by adjunct professors, in order to avoid new requirements that they provide healthcare to anyone working over 30 hours per week. This is terrible news for a lot of people; 70 percent of professors work as adjuncts and many will now have to cope with a major pay cut just as requirements that they buy their own health insurance go into effect:"

I just brings a smile to my mug- looks like the chickens are settling in for a long night.

Once again from the "it's good to be king" files we observe the easiest way to deal with objective criticism is to ban it.

Well, that's why she looks so familiar.

Middy,

Good one with the wig photo. It looks better on Flip Wilson.

Just replaced my amp, man have they got the technology down pat.
Got another Yamaha.. I have never had a problem with one yet, I have had Sony, Kenwoods and a few others that give it up or are continual problems.. not with the big Yamaha's.

There is a program with a sensor to balance the surround and it also tells you if there is a problem with a reversed speaker polarity and if distances are not right.

What a great time of history to live in, too bad about the political crap but some things just have to play out I suppose.

.."Politics, under a democracy, reduces itself to a mere struggle for office by flatterers of the proletariat; even when a superior man prevails at that disgusting game he must prevail at the cost of his self-respect. Not many superior men make the attempt. The average great captain of the rabble, when he is not simply a weeper over irremediable wrongs, is a hypocrite so far gone that he is unconscious of his own hypocrisy—a slimy fellow, offensive to the nose." HL Mencken.

I am continually amazed at this man's brilliant insight to the heart of man.

At least we will finally find out the truth on what happened in Bengazi, The Hildabeast is testifying today..

Let the farce continue.
BTW.. if you really want the truth don't ask some lying politician their opinion, go to those who really know how things work.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=-1rMoZ9LK7A

..I have talked to plenty of these folks in my years, they will lie about specifics for the most part, but on questions like these they are usually telling the truth.

..all in all the average crook is more truthful than the average politician, as Old Saddlebags will prove in her testimony today.

Barack Obama was sworn in for a second term as president of the United States Monday, amid a day of pomp, parades, and performances in Washington, D.C. Here are some of the highlights of the daylong festivities:

12:00 a.m.–11:59 p.m.: Secret Service freaking out
8:42 a.m.: First of many decisions by an onlooker to just go, right here, rather than lose his spot
9:58 a.m.: Half-shaved Obama tears down White House stairs after having slept through alarm
10:21 a.m.: Mitt Romney lets out a momentary sigh in between pulling up his first and second pant leg
11:15 a.m.: Vice President Biden sworn in on 1991 Playboy featuring the Barbi Twins
12:30 p.m.: Tank filled to brim with stew is rolled out for all in attendance
1:30 p.m.: Presidential dog, Bo, barks national anthem
2:11 p.m.: Obama jumps on trampoline, dunks Bible through hoop with red, white, and blue net
5:18 p.m.: Vice President Biden’s blackout begins
