Probably not such a good idea, but it would make my truck the most recognizable realtor’s vehicle in town

Even in Texas, some things won’t fly. I’ll confess: it would be fun to bomb around town with this, just for a day.

An ad company in Waco, Texas that makes decals for trucks thought it would be a good move to make one that depicts a woman tied up in the back of a pickup trick. It was intended to be an experiment to market the company’s decal-making capabilities.

The founder said it was something he had to “put out there, to see who notices it.” Not surprisingly, the depiction of a woman bound in the back of a truck up has generated quite a firestorm. The founder told the local TV station that the backlash has been quite a shock. [That’s the editorial spin put on by BusinessInsider. In fact, business has boomed. – Ed]

And Moveon.Org’s response? ….Crickets

General Petreus: Bomb Syria. Essentially, he seems to be saying that we have to back up the President’s threat because otherwise Iran and N.Korea will see us for the paper tiger that we are, but regardless of his justification, isn’t it a giggle that Obama turns to the most hated enemy of his base for support?

On Racial Redistricting

Ben Bianco’s letter setting forth reasons we are exempt from the racial balancing law.

And this, redacted letter, from a law firm retained by the town to investigate challenging the constitutionality of Connecticut’s law:

Sent: Sunday, June 23, 2013 3:59 PM
To: XXXXX
Subject: RE: Potential Legal Alternatives to RB Statute

…. I suggest that we address your question in two stages.  As to the question of
how we would propose to handle the litigation and how much the litigation
would cost, I will need assistance from my litigation partners.  However,
before asking them to assist in preparing a litigation budget and a team to
propose, I recommend that we undertake the research you request concerning
the viability of bringing such an action.  Having an understanding of the
underlying legal principles will inform our recommendations as to the
potential litigation.

While any estimate is perforce [this is how you know we’re hearing from a lawyer – ED] speculative, I estimate that we can research this question and describe our findings in between 10 and 20 hours of research for … and 5 to 10 hours of my time.  The estimated cost of the initial research stage of the project, accordingly,  would [be] estimated totals ranging from $4000 to $8000 for the research.

Now she tells us?

Samantha Power: "smart diplomacy"

Samantha Power Sunstein: “smart diplomacy”

Obama’s Ambassador to the UN: “I’m naive”

She, and the rest of the Obama team, thought that maybe they could convince Iran to switch sidesIran?!

Remember when the Democrats refused to approve John Bolton to the position of UN Ambassador because he was a war monger? Bolton says a missile attack on Syria would be a useless, dangerous gesture. Bolton, of course, is nowhere near as smart as Cass Sunstein’s wife, so that explains the  difference

Doubling down

Would somebody please explain to me what I'm doing?

Would somebody please explain to me what I’m doing?

Faced with rejection in Congress, Obama widens scope of attack, offers Syrians a map of all targets, number of missiles to be fired and arrival time of jet fighters. 

In the history of the United States, have we ever had so stupid a leader? That’s a rhetorical question.

Despite statements from both US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry that a US-led strike on Syria would be a “limited and tailored” military attack, ABC News reported on Thursday that the strike planned by Obama’s national security team is “significantly larger” than most have anticipated.

According to ABC News, in addition to a salvo of 200 Tomahawk cruise missiles fired from four Navy destroyers stationed in the eastern Mediterranean, the US is also planning an aerial campaign that is expected to last two days.

This campaign potentially includes an aerial bombardment of missiles and long range bombs from US-based B-2 stealth bombers that carry satellite-guided bombs, B-52 bombers, that can carry air-launched cruise missiles and Qatar-based B-1s that carry long-range, air-to-surface missiles, both ABC News and The New York Times reported.

Lies from the master

Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow! You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout Till you have drench’d our steeples, drown’d the cocks!         You sulphurous and thought-executing fires,	 Vaunt-couriers to oak-cleaving thunderbolts,	 Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking thunder,	 Strike flat the thick rotundity o’ the world!	 Crack nature’s moulds, all germens spill at once	         That make ingrateful man!

Blow, winds, and crack your cheeks! rage! blow!
You cataracts and hurricanoes, spout
Till you have drench’d our steeples, drown’d the cocks!
You sulphurous and thought-executing fires,
Vaunt-couriers to oak-cleaving thunderbolts,
Singe my white head! And thou, all-shaking thunder,
Strike flat the thick rotundity o’ the world!
Crack nature’s moulds, all germens spill at once
That make ingrateful man!

See if you can spot how many errors and outright lies the warmist profiteer makes in just these few paragraphs.

Gore said proponents of action to decrease greenhouse gas emissions into the atmosphere are “winning the conversation,” in large part because of an increase in extreme weather events.

“Every night on the news, it’s like a nature hike through the book of revelations,” Gore said. “People are noticing this. And simultaneously they’re noticing the sharp drop in the cost of carbon-free, greenhouse gas-free energy, and the combination is pushing us over this political tipping point and the trend is unstoppable.”

Gore recalled being accused of demagoguery when his 2005 film, “An Inconvenient Truth” contained an animated scene showing ocean water flooding the World Trade Center memorial site.

“It happened last Oct. 29, years ahead of schedule,” he said, referring to the day Hurricane Sandy battered the East Coast. “And the impact of that and many, many other similar events here and around the world has really begun to create a profound shift.”

While scientists generally avoid linking individual extreme weather events to climate change, they agree its effects — such as warmer waters and higher sea levels — can exacerbate storms.

“They’re stronger now,” he said of storms. “The extreme events are more extreme. The hurricane scale used to be 1-5 and now they’re adding a 6. The fingerprint of man-made global warming is all over these storms and extreme weather events.”

2012: Lowest tornado count in 60 years.

USA Today: Despite dire warnings, 2013 hurricane season is a bust.

But don’t fret, there’s always the destruction of the world to blame on the Gore Syndrome:

“Experts”: Global warming responsible for war in Syria. In 1933 Syria banned yo-yos because they were causing drought; today, U.S. State Department employees blame hot air.

Too bad; Obama would probably call the whole thing off if they weren’t

These ticket scalpers are sure something, eh Jimmy?

And the teachers union, naturally, is opposed

Resourceful teachers will find a way: NEA-approved gym class

Resourceful teachers will find a way: NEA-approved detention hall

Little Rock school district will require teachers to wear underwear in class.

The school district in Little Rock, Ark. has announced plans for a dress code that will require teachers to wear underwear. Every single day. Female teachers will have to wear bras, too.

T-shirts, patches and other clothing containing slogans for beer, alcohol, drugs, gangs or sex will also be prohibited. Other verboten garments will include cut-off jeans with ragged edges, cut-out dresses and spaghetti-straps if teachers aren’t wearing at least two layers.

keep-calm-and-date-a-tattooed-teacherFlip-flops will be banned. “Tattoos must be covered if at all possible.” No jogging suits, either (though gym and dance teachers do get a pass on this one).

And the very worst of all: No spandex.

Organized labor vocally opposes the new universal underwear requirement and the rest of the non-draconian dress code.

In 2012, teachers in the beachside hamlet of Hampton, N.H. called an attempt to prevent teachers from wearing jeans, tank-tops and flip-flops “derogatory and condescending.”

This year, in Lewis County, W. Va., teachers pitched a fit because the local board of education  voted to prohibit them from wearing blue jeans, faded jeans and shorts to work.

“How can we get those hot little 9th graders into our pants if we’ve got panties underneath?”, moaned one teacher. It’s a poser.

Mr. Peabody and Sherman: P.J. O’Rourke looks at Obama’s role in history

 

F.B.D.H.R.O., Twitterside Chat: When you see a rattlesnake poised to strike, you do not wait until he has struck before you crush him. You go find other people to crush him for you. But first you try to talk him out of it.

Even more accurate that the cartoon.

Julius Barack Caesar Obama
Crosses the Rubicon

I am crossing the Rubicon. Brrr, the water’s chilly. Deep, too. I’m going for a walk along the riverbank to look for a bridge. And I will cross the Rubicon as soon as the weather warms up. The die has been cast. That is, the deck has been shuffled. Or the Wheel of Fortune has been spun. And I’ll buy a vowel.

Pontius Barack Pilate Obama,
Matthew 27:24

When he saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, “I am innocent of the blood of these just persons, but I’ll ask the Senate back in Rome for authority to do something-or-other, although it may have to wait until after Good Friday.”

Christopher Barack Columbus Obama

Many prominent experts, including Thomas Friedman of the New York Times, maintain that the earth is flat. This is a debate I would like to have. Meanwhile, I have discovered a new route to France.

Shakespeare’s Henry Barack V,
Act IV, Scene iii

That he which hath no stomach to this fight,

Let him depart. So I’m out of here.
