Our Supposed “Opposition” Politicians Are Lucky

In DC the GOP shoots themselves.

In Moscow…

Russian opposition politician Boris Nemtsov was shot to death in central Moscow late Friday.

The head of the Moscow police department is on the scene, according to TASS news agency. Moscow police sources say there were witnesses to the shooting who are now being questioned.
“Today at approximately 11:15 PM Nemtsov was walking with a female companion along the Bolshoy Kamenniy bridge. A car approached, from which several shots were fired. Four shots hit Nemtsov in the back,” Ministry of Internal Affairs spokesperson Elena Alekseeva said.

…Nemtsov was 55 years old. He was a former deputy prime minister in the Russian government under President Boris Yeltsin. At one point he was considered a likely presidential candidate. After Vladimir Putin became the country’s president, Nemtsov actively criticized the administration and its policies.

Vladimir Putin decried this “random” attack.

I Guess This Kind Of Proves Garcia’s Point

Obama’s Golden Touch continues

CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel will take on Cook County Commissioner Jesus “Chuy” Garcia in the first mayoral runoff election in Chicago history on April 7.
A fiery Garcia, who finished second to Emanuel, criticized Emanuel on catering to special interests and failing to do enough on crime an education in a speech to his supporters at the Alhambra Palace in the West Loop.

Crime an education.

Yep, layers and layers of editors and fact-checkers.

It will be nice to see Rahm crawl back into the fetid little sewer he came out of.

Only Saw One Movie This Year

And that was “American Sniper.”

Didn’t see any of the others up for whatever last night.

Well also didn’t watch any of the Oscars either.

Guess I’m just a long-eared galoot.

I’m Guessing Rudy’s Off The White House Christmas Card List

In Our Over-Credentialed Age…

..This is a new one to me

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A Gothic hip-hop artist who did illegal cosmetic surgery on the side boasted at her murder trial Thursday that her body sculpting work was so popular she was dubbed “the Michelangelo of buttocks injections.”

Padge Victoria Windslowe, who performed under the name “Black Madam,” is accused of killing a 20-year-old dancer from London during a procedure at an airport hotel that involved industrial-grade silicone and Krazy Glue.

Now, I don’t know about you, but when I hear “…a procedure at an airport hotel that involved industrial-grade silicone and Krazy Glue” my first reaction is SIGN ME UP.

Quote Of The Day

Via our dear friend Tim, who shows us that once again that “Utopia” is but Latin for “nightmare”

That’s one explanation: that no sane person shouts, ‘Stuff your pension!’ and clears off to a field near Inverness. Another is that designs for living always end in tears, or worse. From the Russian Revolution to Jonestown, programmes for human happiness come a cropper. It’s best to muddle along as we are, not because human beings are morons or suckers, or traitors to the cause, but because life is meant to be messy, muddled, contrary, comic. In any event, when the balloon goes up, I have my plan ready. I shall hide in the stockroom at Morrison’s (Strood branch), spending what’s left of eternity scoffing their individual fruit pies.

Read the whole delusional, pathetic, and tragi-comic tale. Keep it in mind every time some Government Expert or PhD-wielding Academic insists that we all must follow their path to Enlightenment.

The Quality Of The Local Criminals Has Sadly Deteriorated

Police: Man created black ice to mask drunken driving crash
Published February 17, 2015Associated Press

SPARTA, N.J. – A man poured water onto a freezing road to try to fool officers into thinking the cause of his drunken car crash was black ice, police say.

Twenty-year-old Bryan Byers, of Sparta, was arrested Saturday and charged with drunken driving and other offenses.

Authorities say he hit a guardrail after running a stop sign in a BMW early that morning.

Shortly after the crash, police said, 20-year-old Alexander Zambenedetti, a friend of Byers’, showed up in his own car. The two men then dumped 5-gallon buckets of water onto the road to create black ice, police said.

…Authorities say Byers confessed to the plan. They noticed skid marks were visible under the thin layer of ice at the intersection.

Creative, I’ll grant, but yeah, the skid marks being under the ice were probably something of a give-away to their cunning plan.

Sympathy For The Devil

Via Tim, a shrine in memory of a death in Copenhagen.

Of course, since it’s Europe the shrine is for the shooter

On the street corner where Copenhagen’s Islamist gunman died in a shoot-out with police, his friends laid floral tributes in his memory on Monday.
Emulating the actions of the hundreds of people who left flowers outside a café and a synagogue two men were shot dead at the weekend, those who regard Omar el-Hussein as a “good guy”, not a terrorist, created a third shrine.

…”We’ve put flowers here because we must remember him,” said a young Arab man, who gave his name as Mohamed. “He was a good guy. We don’t believe he did anything wrong. It wasn’t like the police say.” A placard placed with the flowers read: “May Allah be merciful, rest in peace” in both Arabic and Danish.

…“He wasn’t someone who could kill people. He stabbed a guy, OK, but it was only in the leg,” Benny said. “When we fight, we stab, but always in the leg, not to kill. I’ve stabbed ten or eleven people. I know he didn’t have the money to buy an automatic gun. Here it costs 50,000 kroner (nearly £5,000).”

Just turn out the lights, it’s over.

Is There A Nobel Prize For Emasculating A Nation?

I mean, really, what kind of a wimp needs a AUMF to fight the JV team?

President Obama’s request that Congress authorize military action against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was met with skepticism from both parties on Wednesday, raising questions about Capitol Hill’s ability to pass a war measure.

The divide is largely centered on language prohibiting the use of “enduring offensive ground combat operations” against ISIS.

Democrats say this does too little to limit the White House from committing ground troops to the fight, while Republicans say the restrictions could handcuff the military.

How those views can possibly be reconciled isn’t clear, even with Obama using his bully pulpit to call on Washington to unify against what he said was a “barbaric” terrorist network.

Just pathetic.

Quote Of The Day

An Old friend said this to me recently on IM

dude that movie is all you. its kind of cerebral but with an underlying raunchiness

I really can’t argue with that.

The Farce Continues

The Wunderkinds at State leap into the Random Fray with their usual high standards of expertise

It leaves one aghast, it really does.

A known radical Muslim terrorist goes into a Kosher store, and it was a store, not a deli, which is an important distinction as lots of non-jews will stop in for some corned beef and pickles but if you want to be sure to have a nearly 100% jewish clientele a kosher store is the spot. Anyhow, to claim with a straight face that this was some random attack, equal to say getting hit by an asteroid as one walks down the street and not a clear case of a radical muslim terrorist looking specifically to kill Jews, well, it simply beggars belief.

As they beggar our country.

Random

Pardon me whilst I go get sick.

See? It Was All Just…Random

Why, just listen as the mostest eloquentest Genius Evuh explains it to us Morons

It is entirely legitimate for, uh, the American people to be deeply concerned when you’ve got a buncha, uh… violent, vicious zealots, uh, who behead people or randomly shoot… uh… a buncha folks, uh, in a, in a deli in Paris. Uh…

The refusal to say what is plainly going on is either a sign of craven cowardice or an endorsement of it.

Well, or just plain obtuse intellectual stupidity.

Update: Via Ace, here are a few more random notes:

-“Help Wanted” ad in France says “If possible, no Jews please”

-“A Month After (random!) Kosher Market Attack, French Jews Plan Exodus

Randomly, of course.

Updated Update: This is really just too random to pass up

It seems like something one would be hard pressed to disagree with: the word “coexist,” written on a wall using a Muslim crescent as the letter “C,” a Star of David as the letter “X,” and a Christian cross as a “T.”

But in Paris, this particular iteration of the popular inscription—here, created by the street artist Combo, who also pasted a life-size photo of himself next to it—didn’t go down well with everybody. Le Monde reports that four young people asked the artist to remove it last weekend, and beat him up severely when he refused to do so.

Ah those Presbyterian Yutes and their lack of culture!

It Worked So Well Last Time!

I mean, really, the Germans didn’t make a peep the last time they were billed for “war reparations”

The Greek prime minister also repeated demands that Germany – Greece’s biggest creditor – pay reparations for World War Two and repay a loan that the Nazis forced the Bank of Greece to pay when they occupied Greece.

And Greece is in such a strong position here, too.

They’ve really got the Germans right where they want them…

So As A Christian I’m Responsible For The Crusades

And the Inquisition.

Oh and slavery, obviously. That’s a given, duh.

You know, all these things that were done hundreds of years ago.

And this of course means that others can not be held accountable for things they do today.

ok.

I Love Twitter

I really really do. It is catnip for Lefties to make those nasty snap remarks that show how they truly feel, how they denigrate others and they finally are getting caught at it.

Case in point: President Christina Kirchner of Argentina, who is in China to beg the Chinese to loan her bankrupt philosophy country billions of dollars, couldn’t resist sending out a Tweet mocking Asian accents

(Bloomberg) — China’s social media users turned on visiting Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner in outrage, derision and to demand an apology after she published a Twitter post mocking the Chinese accent.
Fernandez replaced r’s with l’s in the tweet after she met with Chinese business leaders in Beijing during a trip aimed at raising investment in the recession-hit South American economy. “Did they only come for lice and petloleum?” Fernandez wrote in Spanish on her Twitter account yesterday, before saying “Sorry” a minute in a separate post a minute later.

Here’s the original text:

Más de 1.000 asistentes al evento… ¿Serán todos de “La Cámpola” y vinieron sólo por el aloz y el petlóleo?

My God, Just Horrible

Every commuter’s nightmare

At least seven people were killed and 12 injured when a Metro-North train slammed into an SUV dashing across the tracks in Westchester Tuesday night, causing a massive explosion and fire that trapped rush-hour commuters inside, sources said.
The Harlem Line train was heading toward the Hawthorne station when a woman driving a black Jeep Cherokee tried to cross the tracks and was bulldozed.
The impact unhinged the electrified third rail, which pierced the lead car and caused blast that ripped apart the passenger compartment, where six of the victims died, sources said. The driver of the Jeep also died.

When I first heard this I thought it was the gas from the Jeep that caused the fire, but the electricity from the third rail?

Just awful.

Update:

The deadly chain of events began as the crossing-barricade arm came down on the back of the Cherokee on Commerce Street, a witness said.
Instead of backing up, the driver — who was stopped in traffic caused by an earlier car accident — continued to cross the tracks, after first getting out to check the damage to her SUV.
“I’m signaling and yelling for her to back up and reverse, and I’m thinking the clock is ticking here,” said Richard Hope, who was driving behind her. “But she gets back in her car and starts driving forward over the tracks.”

If this holds up, all I can say is
Stupid
Damned
Idiot.

Metro-North has gotten a lot of well-deserved flack of late, but this seems to be completely this woman’s fault.

No Photo Op This Year…

…for last year’s Groundhog murderer DeBlasio

I Find It Humorous…

…that the weather forecasters who were hyperventilating “ZOMG we’re all going to DIE!!!!!” when we got 8″ of snow last week are all “Yeah what-EV” about the 6-12″ we’re supposed to get on Monday.

A Concentration Of Power That…

…MUST be broken up

these four companies control what is – to some – the most precious commodity in the world… world whiskey production

The chart is frightening.

Fight Big Booze!

Huckabee…

…is such an ass

that is all.

Never Again

A beautiful gesture on Poland’s part.

I’m sure our President appreciated the gravity as they flew overhead.

Oh wait…

Well That Was A Bit Under-Whelming

We only got about 8″, about half of what we were *guaranteed* to get just a few hours prior. Now don’t get me wrong: if they’re going to blow a forecast this is definitely the direction I want them to screw it up in.

But it does make me hope that someone somewhere will stop just for half a second a think that, just perhaps, if all the billions of dollars of fancy equipment and thousands of PhDs focused on the weather can’t get it right for TOMORROW then maybe they sorta kinda maybe shouldn’t be so 100% sure that they can declare with Absolute Consensus what’s going to happen over the next 100 years.

I am personally thankful for this mistake, however, as it allowed me to have this for breakfast
