Adios, Al! Does this Mean Yesterday was Ouster Sunday?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Al Armendarizo, the suddenly controversial EPA official, who spoke of crucifying businesses randomly to show everyone else you mean business, has resigned today. Awww! Yes, the weaselly Obama appointee reportedly had this to say as Obama's bus wheels ran him over:
In a letter to Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson sent Sunday, Al Armendariz says he regrets his words and stresses that they do not reflect his work as administrator of the five-state region including Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana.

Let me see...what was it exactly that he said on the tape: "my philosophy of enforcement". (00:29) So, he had a philosophy to guide him, it just never affected his work?? Is he going into bridge sales now??
Find people who are not compliant with the law, and you hit them as hard as you can and you make examples out of them, and there is a deterrent effect there...
...So you go out, you look at an industry, you find people violating the law, you go aggressively after them.
...So you put some financial pressure on a company, you get other people in that industry to clean up very quickly. So, that's our general philosophy.
Wait a minute! He says it's his philosophy (which he iterated on at least two occasions) and then he says of the EPA, it's our philosophy, but then tells us that philosophy did not "reflect in his work".

If you feel a warm, yellow stream emanating from Mr. Armendarizo, he may try to tell you it's raining. Give that statement equal credence with the rest.

Quote du jour

It would be hard to become nostalgic about Richard Nixon, who was forced to resign in disgrace. But at least you could tell when he was lying. Obama’s lies are just as big but not as visible, and the media that exposed Nixon is covering for Obama.

Plagiarism on the Internet? I'm Shocked! Shocked!

The Looking Spoon, a great spot for Photoshopped humor and commentary, is getting ripped off. He did a post: The Looking Spoon Being Plagiarized on this guy stealing his graphics and slapping his own name on someone else's work (think: Joe Biden). So I cruised over there to see what else might be found. (This guy is probably getting the most traffic he's ever gotten with just people checking out what a lying weasel he is.) I saw a lot of graphics that I'd swear I'd seen some where else before, (just with someone else's name on it). I think the clincher was a Michael Ramirez cartoon he published with his own name on it. He cropped off Ramirez's name (and copyright notice), changed the font of the caption, and stuck a border on it with his URL. Really creative! /sarc

I've got no problem in sharing the good stuff. My own policy is stated up on the sidebar.
Any graphics I cobble together that have my blog address on them are fair game, so feel free to use whatever you like. A simple link in return is all we ask. (Credit or blame where due.)
Taking the credit for someone else's work is intellectually dishonest and lazy. Plus, it deprives the real creator of the work of the traffic and recognition that they deserve. Maybe Lee Vanden Brink is happy to be the Joe Biden of blogging. But if he's not clever or talented enough to come up with this stuff on his own, he should give credit to those who are.
I dropped MR a note just in case he wants to take notice of the little plagiarist.
* Don't be surprised if he's pulled the material.
Update : I checked back to see if he'd pulled the plagiarized Ramirez cartoon, and mirabile dictu, he had! But, as I said, I have a screen shot of the dirty deed if Mr. Ramirez's lawyers need some red meat.

Quote du jour

At the Williston (N.D.)Walmart, they don’t really bother stocking the shelves. Who wants to work as a stockboy when you can make a bundle in the oil patch? Also, the goods would not stay on the shelves long. The store just sets the pallets in the aisles, and customers grab the goods and go right to the register.

A Little Saturday Night Music

Brad Paisley - Whiskey Lullaby

Ode to Obama's Secret Service


encore presentation of Scott Kirby's
"Hard to Find a Hooker on Valentine's Day"

Normally, I play this once a year, around Valentine's Day, but I was listening to some past "Little Saturday night music" posts, and around the three minute mark, he had some sage advice for Obama's Secret Service teams.
"For God's sake, man, just pay that girl...preferably in cash."
...and it made me think of Obama's Secret Service!

The Rule of Law: Innocent Until Crucified Randomly

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Obama appointee Al Armendarizof
, Dallas Regional EPA Chief

Obama said he wanted to fundamentally transform America. Looks like he sure picked the right team to do it! Al Armendarizof, a man whom, in a rational world, we never would have heard of, made news when a video surfaced that exposed his leg breaking approach to enforcing EPA regulations.
The Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They'd go into a little Turkish town somewhere, they'd find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.
And so you make examples out of people who are in this case not compliant with the law. Find people who are not compliant with the law, and you hit them as hard as you can and you make examples out of them, and there is a deterrent effect there. And, companies that are smart see that, they don't want to play that game, and they decide at that point that it's time to clean up.
And, that won't happen unless you have somebody out there making examples of people. So you go out, you look at an industry, you find people violating the law, you go aggressively after them. And we do have some pretty effective enforcement tools. Compliance can get very high, very, very quickly.
That's what these companies respond to is both their public image but also financial pressure. So you put some financial pressure on a company, you get other people in that industry to clean up very quickly.
How exactly does the EPA's reign of terror resonate with the American ideals of fairness and equality under the law? How about the concept of "justice"?
Find people who are not compliant with the law, and you hit them as hard as you can and you make examples out of them, and there is a deterrent effect there.
I think I may have heard this speech somewhere before. I think Obama may have quoted from it.
Of course! The Chicago way!

Medal of Honor

Private Barney F. Hajiro


Citation:

Private Barney F. Hajiro distinguished himself by extraordinary heroism in action on 19, 22, and 29 October 1944, in the vicinity of Bruyeres and Biffontaine, eastern France. Private Hajiro, while acting as a sentry on top of an embankment on 19 October 1944, in the vicinity of Bruyeres, France, rendered assistance to allied troops attacking a house 200 yards away by exposing himself to enemy fire and directing fire at an enemy strong point. He assisted the unit on his right by firing his automatic rifle and killing or wounding two enemy snipers. On 22 October 1944, he and one comrade took up an outpost security position about 50 yards to the right front of their platoon, concealed themselves, and ambushed an 18-man, heavily armed, enemy patrol, killing two, wounding one, and taking the remainder as prisoners. On 29 October 1944, in a wooded area in the vicinity of Biffontaine, France, Private Hajiro initiated an attack up the slope of a hill referred to as "Suicide Hill" by running forward approximately 100 yards under fire. He then advanced ahead of his comrades about 10 yards, drawing fire and spotting camouflaged machine gun nests. He fearlessly met fire with fire and single-handedly destroyed two machine gun nests and killed two enemy snipers. As a result of Private Hajiro’s heroic actions, the attack was successful. Private Hajiro’s extraordinary heroism and devotion to duty are in keeping with the highest traditions of military service and reflect great credit upon him, his unit, and the United States Army.


Private Hajiro: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Hat tip Home of Heroes

There are fewer than a hundred living MoH recipients today. Their names and their stories should not be forgotten. My mission is to honor one of those heroes here each week, and salute them for their courage and sacrifice. In the words of John Fitzgerald Kennedy:
“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors; the men it remembers.”

Quote du jour

“How in the world are we supposed to make fun of an out-of-touch elitist who thinks he’s smarter than everyone and who has written multiple memoirs despite never having accomplished one useful thing in his entire life? It’s impossible!”

Really, if you can’t make fun of Obama, you need to turn in your comedian badge right now. You can keep the gun.

(PHOTOS) Obama Eats Dog

Cross-posted at the Left Coast Rebel

This evening I about broke a rib feasting upon the plethora of emminently hilarious, doggone tasty photoshops at Dear Leader Obama's much-deserved bow-wow expense.

I can laugh. You can too; we've all earned it in the last few years. We've about lost our minds with what has happened to this seemingly once-great nation turned Obamanation Banana Republic of America. Obama has screwed (and eaten) the pooch, so to speak, as he's forced socialism upon our nation these last 3+ years -- I'd say the momentary doggy comic relief is much deserved.

I wonder what Indonesian dog tastes like? Chicken?...
