In Detroit, Life Emulates Art

A local independent TV station has been playing the "Robocop" trilogy for the last couple days. I'd forgotten that they were set in Detroit, overrun with crime and corruption and bankrupt.

It seems as though life emulates art once again!

(I guess, more properly, it should have been "imitates".)

(*a.k.a. Rule Five Friday)
Gisele is in the news lately, because, in spite of all the environmental claptrap on her homepage, Gisele and Tom are building a 20,000 square foot house in southern California. Spend your money however you like, Gisele! You earned it! Just spare the rest of us the pain of listening to you preach about saving the environment. Apparently, you want to save it by getting as much of it under one roof as you can! Heh.

Blow Up over Sex Dolls

Gentlemen prefer blondes. I prefer someone who can fog a mirror!


In the running for the strangest story out of southern California lately:

A Valley Center man must pay nearly $300,000 to his former employer after breaking away to start his own love-doll company, a Vista Superior Court jury decided Wednesday.

A stiff penalty! Hmm. Wonder if he had an inflated view of his worth to the company?

I wonder if they make a shorter model for diminutive men? As in "Put another Barbie™ on the shrimp"?

Jurors got a good laugh out of Yvette and two other dolls that joined them in the jury room during deliberations.

The Medal of Honor

Specialist Four Alfred Rascon


Citation:

Specialist Four Alfred Rascon, distinguished himself by a series of extraordinarily courageous acts on 16 March 1966, while assigned as a medic to the Reconnaissance Platoon, Headquarters Company, 1st Battalion (Airborne), 503rd Infantry, 173d Airborne Brigade (Separate). While moving to reinforce its sister battalion under intense enemy attack, the Reconnaissance Platoon came under heavy fire from a numerically superior enemy force. The intense enemy fire from crew-served weapons and grenades severely wounded several point squad soldiers. Specialist Rascon, ignoring directions to stay behind shelter until covering fire could be provided, made his way forward. He repeatedly tried to reach the severely wounded point machine-gunner laying on an open enemy trail, but was driven back each time by the withering fire. Disregarding his personal safety, he jumped to his feet, ignoring flying bullets and exploding grenades to reach his comrade. To protect him from further wounds, he intentionally placed his body between the soldier and enemy machine guns, sustaining numerous shrapnel injuries and a serious wound to the hip. Disregarding his serious wounds he dragged the larger soldier from the fire-raked trail. Hearing the second machine-gunner yell that he was running out of ammunition, Specialist Rascon, under heavy enemy fire crawled back to the wounded machine-gunner stripping him of his bandoleers of ammunition, giving them to the machine-gunner who continued his suppressive fire. Specialist Rascon fearing the abandoned machine gun, its ammunition and spare barrel could fall into enemy hands made his way to retrieve them. On the way, he was wounded in the face and torso by grenade fragments, but disregarded these wounds to recover the abandoned machine gun, ammunition and spare barrel items, enabling another soldier to provide added suppressive fire to the pinned-down squad. In searching for the wounded, he saw the point grenadier being wounded by small arms fire and grenades being thrown at him. Disregarding his own life and his numerous wounds, Specialist Rascon reached and covered him with his body absorbing the blasts from the exploding grenades, and saving the soldier's life, but sustaining additional wounds to his body. While making his way to the wounded point squad leader, grenades were hurled at the sergeant. Again, in complete disregard for his own life, he reached and covered the sergeant with his body, absorbing the full force of the grenade explosions. Once more Specialist Rascon was critically wounded by shrapnel, but disregarded his own wounds to continue to search and aid the wounded. Severely wounded, he remained on the battlefield, inspiring his fellow soldiers to continue the battle. After the enemy broke contact, he disregarded aid for himself, instead treating the wounded and directing their evacuation. Only after being placed on the evacuation helicopter did he allow aid to be given to him. Specialist Rascon's extraordinary valor in the face of deadly enemy fire, his heroism in rescuing the wounded, and his gallantry by repeatedly risking his own life for his fellow soldiers are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon himself, his unit, and the United States Army.


Specialist Rascon: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Teresa Heinz's Fib Feeds the Homeless

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Not Teresa, specifically, but her company, Heinz, has been fibbing about the ownership of a company they acquired two years ago, Golden Circle. They have been selling their products labeled as "proudly Australian owned". Tsk. Tsk.
And now, it's going to cost them...

According to the Herald Sun, they've been forced to get rid of over two million pounds of pineapple!

MORE than 800,000 cans of pineapple weighing 1.1 million kilos, filling 50 semitrailers and valued at $3 million are bound for Australia's homeless community thanks to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.


Now there's a watchdog agency with some teeth!

The winners are the poor and destitute, who will now be enjoying the versatile fruit after it was handed over to charity Foodbank Australia last week.

"They said, 'Have we got something for you'!" Foodbank chief executive John Webster said with a laugh.

"There's literally 1000 pallet loads of sliced pineapple, diced pineapple, crushed pineapple, pineapple in sweetened juices, unsweetened juices and also juice by itself.


Just one word for it: Sweet!

"Capital Beyond the Control of the Capitol"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Obama can be thought to be less than presidential, or he can open his mouth and remove all doubt!

Then again, in terms of candidates for a perp walk, there were pretty slim pickings: Many of Wall Street’s leading luminaries stayed away, perhaps out of pique at the notion that mere elected officials would have the gall to tell Masters of the Universe how to run their affairs. Unless your business model depends on bilking people, there’s little to fear from these new rules. Yet there is so much fear abroad in the land, or at least up and down Wall Street, that the big financial institutions are shelling out millions to try to torpedo the reforms.


"Perp walk"? "Masters of the Universe"?? "Unless your business model depends on bilking people..."??? Who's writing your material these days, Mr. President? Keith D'Oh-lbermann??? This might make good "boob bait for the bubbas" among your party faithful, but seriously?? Is there no one in your own administration that might be a "candidate for a perp walk"? Does the name TurboTax Timmy Geithner, your current Treasury secretary ring a bell? Did you invite Tom Daschle, who failed to pay more than 100 grand in back taxes to Washington to a "perp walk" or to be part of your administration?

Mr. President, you walk softly and carry a big "shtick"!

Your sneering characterization of bankers as "Masters of the Universe" only seems to bother you to the extent that they are encroaching on your turf! These men are responsible for accruing and managing capital which is beyond the control of the capitol! That is to say, money that can be lent to businesses for expansion and creation of jobs, growth instruments that might provide for someone's secure retirement funds, and money to lend consumers for education, (scratch that! The government already consumed that part of the economy!), for home improvement (without a government contractor providing the services), for a new car, perhaps even one not built by Government Motors?

And did you notice the false dichotomy? Either you are a con man, bilking your customers or you have "nothing to fear" from Obama's new rules. When exactly did you stop beating your wife, Mr. Obama?
Perhaps, the bankers do not wish to "torpedo reform" as much as to torpedo your "reforms"? Maybe the bankers could object, not on the grounds that they currently do or ever had intentions of "bilking people", but on the grounds that these men are professionals who are managing multimillion enterprises, whereas you, Mr. President, have never managed as much as a lemonade stand, and yet you proceed to lecture captains of industry as if you had!

They don't object to your "gall" Mr. President, although you have plenty of that. No, I think they object to your incompetence and your willingness to have the government take over large portions of our economy with the same hope of efficiency and success that we've seen with the Post Office, Medicare, the VA, Social Security and the D.M.V.

I think that Obama's "pique" is directed at any "capital beyond the control of the Capitol". He's not greedy. He just thinks government should have it all!

When liberals advocate a value-added tax, conservatives should respond: Taxing consumption has merits, so we will consider it -- after the 16th Amendment is repealed.

A VAT will be rationalized as necessary to restore fiscal equilibrium. But without ending the income tax, a VAT would be just a gargantuan instrument for further subjugating Americans to government.

Liberal "Change"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


One thing I have been noticing of late, is the type of "change" that liberals seem to be fondest of when debating the shortcomings of their ideology: Change the subject!

I wrote a piece recently about the hypocrisy of the pseudo-"Green" (blue) environmental screed Avatar being released on "Earth Day", that shipping tons of plastic coast to coast and encouraging people to curl up in front of the big screen plasma TV and consume electricity prodigiously was not very "green".

Movies are released on DVD all the time, no problem there. Just hyping it as some sort of "green" statement, when the only green Cameron really cares about is in the cash registers, was hypocritical.

A number of liberal commenters took me to task, about whether I liked the movie, whether I had seen it in 3D or whether my objections were purely partisan, all irrelevant to the point. They discussed everything BUT whether or not the message of releasing a zillion DVDs on Earth Day was "green".

Thread hijacking is another common lib technique. If they do not want a discussion to succeed, they say something outrageous and divert the discussion to something else. Generally racism. Sometimes homosexuality. Anything but the topics that expose them for who they truly are.

That's one of the reasons they want to brand the Tea Partys as "racist". All the tea parties I've attended, no one gave a flying fling at a rolling dough nut what color any of the politicians were, they cared about whether or not they were adhering to the Constitution.

If the liberals can divert the Tea Partys from defending the Constitution to defending themselves against false and malicious charges of "racism", then the liberals don't have to defend their un-Constitutional actions, laws or speech.

Don't let yourself be distracted or derailed. If a liberal wants to change the subject. Change it back!

Cross posted at Say Anything

Update: There are a number of other ways liberals lie to change the subject. One is the straw man. Recently in a McPaper I picked up on the road, there was a letter to the editor saying that if Tea Partiers didn't want to pay taxes, that they shouldn't receive any services.
"We would soon see how long the Tea Party would survive in its own tax-free world"

Only no one in the "Tea Party" that I've ever hear is advocating paying no taxes at all. The objections I hear are for ever increasing taxes to fund extra-Constitutional things while not dealing with inefficiency, waste and corruption.
So by distorting the message of "Taxes are too high" into "We don't want to pay any taxes at all, is a reductio ad absurdum, a reduction to the absurd, they create the "straw man" so weak that even a liberal could knock it down!

Happy "Earth Day"!

You Could Still Save $50 By Switching to Geico, You Mentally Retarded Murderer!

Here's an update on the story: "You Could Save $50 By Switching to Geico, You Mentally Retarded Murderer!"

Lance Baxter, a.k.a. "D.C. Douglas", has been fired. Rather than own up to his own stupidity, Lance has this to say:
“I called as a private citizen to make a complaint. Racism and homophobia are my Achilles heel, but unfortunately my message included inappropriate words and I am sorry for that. However, telling their members to harass my employer to get me fired is an egregiously disproportionate response to my actions.”


Gee, Lance! And when private citizens who are or might be Geico customers act as private citizens to tell your employer what an offensive moron you are, that is their right. I don't believe anyone had to be told to complain about what you said. If you weren't such a bigoted bonehead, you might have recognized that. Unfortunately (for you) the egregious outrageousness of your comments (like chickens, the Rev. Wright might say) have come home to roost!

Contrary to initial reports, Lance is not the "Gecko". Our apologies to lizards and other liberals everywhere!

Sergeant Richard A. Pittman


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty. While Company 1 was conducting an operation along the axis of a narrow jungle trail, the leading company elements suffered numerous casualties when they suddenly came under heavy fire from a well concealed and numerically superior enemy force. Hearing the engaged marines' calls for more firepower, Sgt. Pittman quickly exchanged his rifle for a machinegun and several belts of ammunition, left the relative safety of his platoon, and unhesitatingly rushed forward to aid his comrades. Taken under intense enemy small-arms fire at point blank range during his advance, he returned the fire, silencing the enemy position. As Sgt. Pittman continued to forge forward to aid members of the leading platoon, he again came under heavy fire from 2 automatic weapons which he promptly destroyed. Learning that there were additional wounded marines 50 yards further along the trail, he braved a withering hail of enemy mortar and small-arms fire to continue onward. As he reached the position where the leading marines had fallen, he was suddenly confronted with a bold frontal attack by 30 to 40 enemy. Totally disregarding his safety, he calmly established a position in the middle of the trail and raked the advancing enemy with devastating machinegun fire. His weapon rendered ineffective, he picked up an enemy submachinegun and, together with a pistol seized from a fallen comrade, continued his lethal fire until the enemy force had withdrawn. Having exhausted his ammunition except for a grenade which he hurled at the enemy, he then rejoined his platoon. Sgt. Pittman's daring initiative, bold fighting spirit and selfless devotion to duty inflicted many enemy casualties, disrupted the enemy attack and saved the lives of many of his wounded comrades. His personal valor at grave risk to himself reflects the highest credit upon himself, the Marine Corps, and the U.S. Naval Service.


Sgt. Pittman: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Obama Sacks Goldman. Dems Take Money in Sacks

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


Goldman Sachs, the whipping boy du jour of the Obama administration, gave a lot of money to apparently ungrateful Democrats.
USA Today, lists the top ten recipients of G-S's largesse in the 2009-10 campaign cycle. Seven of the top ten were Democrats or Democrat organizations.

Democrat National Committee, Democrat Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democrat Congressional Campaign Committee were # 1,3 & 4 respectively. Michael McMahon D-NY, Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY, Scott Murphy, D-NY were # 2, 6, & 7.
"Shut the Chuck Up" Schumer, D-NY weighed in at #10.

In 2008, Goldman Sachs contributed nearly a million bucks, ($994,795) to Barack Hussein Obama.

I can understand politicians who cannot be bought. But, you'd think the ones that were rented would remain grateful for at least a while!

By your standard, should Republican senators vote against your nominees because they’re liberal?”

I’d also like to ask, “Would you please explain where Sonia Sotomayor is qualified to serve on the Supreme Court but Roberts and Alito are not?”

Quote du jour

It's [the Tea Party] not the caricature as the press had it — as the disaffected, the poor, the losers — unsuccessful, racist, ignorant, uneducated whites. Which is exactly what you heard all of last year — when it wasn't ignored. It turns out they're middle class, slightly above the mean in education and in income.

But they represent a philosophy. And it’s libertarian. And it’s interesting. It’s got three ideas. It's against high taxes, it’s against the intrusiveness of government, and in an even larger sense it's kind of a constitutionalist idea.

There really is this notion of liberty, and that somehow the expansion of government — particularly since the liberals have taken over in the House, the Senate and the White House — has pushed taxes higher [and expanded] the reach, the power and the extent of government. And it's a kind of betrayal of the American social contract.
