Play That Funky Race Card

This Is Racist!!


It sure is: the cat is black, the squirrel is brown, but the dog is white!

Bloomberg Businessweek is taking a beating from critics who say the magazine’s recent cover—featuring a cartoon illustration of what appears to be a black family rolling in cash from a housing rebound—is racist.

“Our cover illustration got strong reactions, which we regret,” Josh Tyrangiel, Bloomberg Businessweek’s editor in chief, said in a statement to Yahoo News. “If we had to do it over again, we’d do it differently.”

The Feb. 25 cover depicts the cash-grabbing family members as stereotypical caricatures inside a two-story pink home above the headline “The Great American Housing Rebound.”

“Flips. No-look bids. 300 percent returns,” the subhead reads. “What could possibly go wrong?”

Oh for the love of Pete. How much more multi-racial a picture could you have? Sure looks like a black kid upstairs, and a Latina teen in the next room over. Downstairs we’ve got a white woman, and reaching out through the wall to grab another handful of cash is an Indian guy. No, he’s black! No, sorry, he ain’t. Look at that skinny nose and that hairline. That ain’t no black dude. That’s an Indian guy, and yeah, plenty of them come that dark and darker. So?

It’s just another example of the Race Police laying a beatdown on anyone and everyone because they can. Had everyone in the house been whiter than Casper, that would be racist too. Had they all be Asians, we’d have heard remarks about chop suey and the sounds of falling silverware. This is a Lose-Lose situation, and it’s high time to tell these people to


and go away.

It’s a cartoon. Take a friggin’ pill.

Again? Still? RCOB

5/3 of some folks are complete idiots

Earlier this month the President of Emory University wrote a piece for the school magazine about the efficacy of compromise. By the 24th he was forced to apologize for the piece because he mentioned slavery fully in context in his piece. The faux outrage that his comments caused proved three things: that no one at Emory has any grasp of American history, that the professors at Emory University are morons, and that the student body are utterly unable to employ critical thinking.

Read it all if you want.

Or read the original news piece here.

Or President Wagner’s little essay that the whole flap is about, right here.

Or just look at the picture of the anguished collegiate liberals out protesting and getting it ass-backwards as always:


The Amy Farrah Fowler glasses and hair give hotness somehow. It’s amazing, but it’s true.

ATLANTA — A reception on Friday at Emory University to celebrate the work of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference in the years after the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. could have been more poorly timed, but not by much.

Emory University’s president, James W. Wagner, spoke Friday at a reception for an exhibition about the Southern Christian Leadership Conference. More Photos »

All week long, the president of Emory, James W. Wagner, had been trying to control the damage done by a column he wrote for the university magazine. In it, he praised the 1787 three-fifths compromise, which allowed each slave to be counted as three-fifths of a person in determining how much Congressional power the Southern states would have, as an example of how polarized people could find common ground.

It was, he has since said, a clumsy and regrettable mistake.

A faculty group censured him last week for the remarks.

Really? Srsly?? A group of faculty called out the president of their university because they felt his essay was racist?

Holy shit.  Fire the whole dumb fuck bunch of them. And get your kids the hell out of Emory if they go there. Obviously the faculty has no faculty with history, logic, patriotism, or simple reasoning.

Would somebody, anybody, please tell me how president Wagner’s essay was in any way, shape, or form, wrong? Two great and shining examples stand out as classics in American History to show compromise in action in Government. The Two Thirds Representation is one of them. And the Missouri Compromise is the other ... and both are on the same subject.

What kind of turbo-stupid drooling imbeciles are being turned out by the government run schools these days, that not only do current students not get this most basic civics lesson, but that their instructors, having graduated years earlier, worked their way up the educational pyramid to full PHD status and name-brand college professorships, also do not get it? That’s a non-stop continuous FAIL over a 12-20 year period, AT LEAST. I am beyond aghast. I am stultified. People, college students and professors, CAN NOT be this misinformed. And yet, they are. BY THE MILLIONS. TENS OF MILLIONS.

We need to take torches, pitchforks, and shovels and tear the entire nation’s educational system apart, from the very roots of pre-school on up, and rip out the black-armband morons EN MASSE who have failed our nation. They are far beyond a disgrace. They are subversive lying traitors. Every teacher who pushed revisionist history: flogged and fired. Every teacher who just swallowed the supplied lesson plan whole, and never questioned authority, who never put in the smallest bit of thought, who just regurgitated the garbage year after year: flogged and fired. They are traitors. Plain and simple. They are enemies of our nation, and enemies of our children. This is no accident. This is a national, decades old, coast to coast coordinated effort to misinform and to inculcate hatred and stupidity. And they should all hang for it.

There should not be a black person in America who is not willing to get down on his or her knees and thank God and the Founding Fathers in public for the 3/5 Compromise. Not a single one.

That even one black feels otherwise is a terrible tragedy. That nearly all of them feel otherwise is an indictment of brainless stupidity that covers an entire race. There is no hope for them. Not now, not ever. Their cause is lost. They are not just willfully misinformed, they are intellectually incapable. And any other person of any other race who buys into their moronic worldview is even more hopeless.

Let me put it as succinctly as I can: if black people have been taught that the 3/5 Compromise was a bad thing, then the teachers who taught them this are both morons and traitors. If black people were taught otherwise, but have come to consider the 3/5 Compromise a bad thing based on their own reasoning and based on consensus opinion within their own subculture, then they are effectively too stupid to draw breath. There is no middle ground, nor any room for discussion: it’s either A) teachers are traitors, or B) blacks are imbeciles.

If neither A nor B was the case, then I’d be hearing educational groups and race-representing groups preaching from the rafters 24-7 against that view. And all I hear is crickets.

Turning On A Phrase

Dangerous and Usual Democrats Push For AWB

trying to ban ONE HUNDRED FIFTY SEVEN types of “dangerous and unusual” firearms

Hey doofus, if they’re so unusual, why are there 157 types of them? That sounds as common as muck, don’t it?

Democrats have begun an all-out push to move a new assault weapons ban through Congress. But it faces strong headwinds from House Republicans, Democrats in pro-gun rights states and many legislatures in western and southern states who are moving in a different direction to ease gun control, rather than strengthen it.

And of course the hearing was more full of totally imagined bullshit than a John Edwards lawsuit summation ...

The Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by the bill’s author, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, heard emotional testimony Wednesday from a witness list stacked with pro-ban speakers—none more powerful than Neil Heslin of Newtown, Conn., whose son Jesse, was killed in the elementary school massacre. He pointed to his forehead and told the hushed hearing panel about the bullet that struck just below Jesse’s hairline.

“Jesse looked at coward Adam Lanza in the eyes, saw his face and he looked at the end of that barrel, Jesse didn’t run, Jesse didn’t turn his back. That was the fatal shot that killed Jesse,” he said.

Really motherfucker? Really? Your 6 year old was heroic? Really? Because you yourself were there and witnessed this right? Oh wait, you weren’t. Not at all. No survivors in that classroom. So it’s just as likely that Lanza grabbed your hysterical pants-shitting kid by the face, put the muzzle against his forehead, and pulled the trigger. Sorry to be nasty like that, but your dribbly emotional scenario is complete bullshit, and you yourself are such a disgusting piece of shit that you’re willing to whore out the death of your own child to make some political hay. You sicken me more than just about any human being I’ve ever heard of.

Democrats are pushing for a new gun ban that would limit, among other things, 157 types of so-called assault weapons and magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition. When asked if there is a constitutionally protected right for someone to own a gun with that kind of capacity to kill, John Walsh, the U.S. Attorney for the District of Colorado speaking on behalf of the Justice Department, said, “There clearly is room for reasonable regulation particularly of dangerous and unusual weapons.”

That phrase, “dangerous and unusual weapons,” is key to the Democrats’ strategy of seeking a new ban that withstands court challenges. In the Supreme Court’s Heller decision, which struck down the District of Columbia’s handgun ban, Justice Antonin Scalia referenced a 1939 U.S. Supreme Court decision that gave Second Amendment protection to weapons “in common use at the time” of its being written.

Scalia wrote, “We think that limitation is fairly supported by the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of ‘dangerous and unusual weapons.’”

1) If our Supreme Court was not full of morons and pussies, they would have thrown out the 1939 Miller decision as part of the Heller decision for the flawed piece of junk that it was. Instead, our modern, cowardly, dickless court is even less brave than a father’s fantasy claim for a certain 6 year old: this court will split atoms to avoid making any decision that is one angstrom unit wider than the exact words in front of them. Miller was crap, if for no other reason than that the other side of the arguments were never heard, because Miller himself was already dead.

2) The Miller decision was about the 1934 National Firearms Act, another idiotic knee-jerk reactionary “we must act now!!” bill which put an extremely onerous tax on fully automatic weapons, thus reserving their use to the rich and powerful. It also banned short bodied rifles and shotguns, even though it allowed pistols of the same or smaller size to still exist. And that same 1934 Act banned “dangerous and unusual” firearms, like pen guns, guns built into pocket watches, wallet guns, belt buckle guns, guns built into hats, buns built into walking sticks, guns built into tire irons, etc. - firearms that were disguised as other things. I never really understood that one. Were gangsters running around robbing banks with lamps, vases, and couch cushions? “There’s a gun built into this, so give me all the money or I’ll blast you with this quart of milk!”

3) The Miller decision was made against Miller, who had argued that short shotguns were indeed of military value. The court of that day must have been full of lazy men who knew nothing of history or firearms, because short shotguns had been used by mounted cavalry for more than 100 years at that point, and short shotguns had been used defensively to great effect in the trenches of The Great War just 16 years prior to this case. So effectively that the Germans, who were only too happy to use poison gas and flame throwers against us, sued in international court to have shotguns banned as terror weapons. So Miller was 100% wrong because the blackrobes purposely ignored the facts that they could have found out about with only the most minimal effort.

But the important thing is what “dangerous and unusual” meant at the time. Oh to hell with it. Why should I waste my finger’s efforts writing about original intent when dealing with unhinged leftists? They don’t get it. The whole damn modern government is based on a deliberate misreading of the original intent of “regulate interstate commerce”. These gun control petty tyrants STILL claim that the Second Amendment is only about the militia, and the weapons hiding under it’s penumbra are 6 foot long muzzle loading muskets. Because most citizens are stupid lazy morons run by their emotions and their gonads, who can’t be bothered to read the reams and reams and reams of writing by the Founding Fathers - ALL OF THEM, not just evil slave-fucker Tommy JeffJeff - who wrote and wrote and wrote about what the whole “keep and bear arms” thing was all about, right on up to including “Their swords and every terrible implement of the soldier are the birthright of Americans.” That’s real original intent: all citizens to go about armed at all times. So obviously, I’m wasting my breath.

But Republicans argue that those weapons are hardly unusual if in the possession of millions of Americans. There are presently more than 4 million AR 15’s in American homes alone, and many more millions of excess-capacity magazines

Rather than create new laws that impinge on the Second Amendment, one Republicans asked why existing laws are not better enforced. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., asked Walsh how many people who had failed gun background checks had been referred to state prosecutions.

Walsh said, “Senator, I don’t have a particular number on that.”

Graham replied, using the most recent DOJ statistics. “Almost 80,000 people failed background checks and 44 people are prosecuted, what kind of deterrent is that?” he asked.

Republican Sen. Charles Grassley asked why a second assault weapons ban is needed, when a Justice Department study found the effects of the first ban to be inconclusive.

“They cannot clearly credit the ban with any of the nation’s recent drop in gun violence,” he said.

Democrats will never let little things like facts get in the way of their emotionally charge rush to stampede your rights and freedoms. It’s too good a crisis to let go to waste, and they will use this to push Forward™ their anarcho-tyrannist agenda as much as they can. There is no foul deed nor disgusting and false display of piety or phony moral superiority that they will not make. Frankly, I am amazed that they haven’t brought the exhumed bodies of the Newtown victims out as display pieces. Or murdered other children and pretended they were Newtown victims. Because yes, they are that sick, that twisted, and that desperate.

PS - Hey Senator Graham: you’d better make sure that failing a NICS check is an actual crime before shooting your mouth off like that. And get your numbers right at both the initial and post appeals level. You know, little minor things like 69% of NICS denials are based on data asynchronicity, and those cases are approved on appeal, and about 12,000 other denials are not prosecuted because of executive orders on federal immigration policy.

PPS - even the Daily Kos understands that Miller was crap.

treated like a Christian? Can’t have any of that.

This is an update to a story from last year.  Which you might not recall.


Boy (?) muslim, meets girl, Irish and white, she’s 15 at the time. Mommy and mommy’s friend try to stop relationship and claim girl too young to marry in any event.  Being a muslim, boy stabs mom and friend to death and on trial now.

He is complaining that he is being treated like a Christian or worse and insists he be tried as a yoot as he claims to be 17. Uh huh.  He’s 22 btw. So much for truth from muzzies but then we already know all that.
Here ya go. Another story for the books.  He also claims reporters in court are causing him depression while admitting he did kill two women.

Gotta wonder in the first damn place, what the hell is it that so many young white girls find attractive in these guys and their religion. 


Turkish waiter ‘depressed’ as he admits to killings
Michael Carroll

A CONFESSED Turkish killer of two Irish women asked for reporters to be banned from his trial because media reports were “depressing him”.

THE request came shortly after the defendant, former waiter Recep Cetin, admitted the charges of murdering Marion Graham and Kathy Dinsmore, both 53 and from Newry, Co Down, in August 2011, at the Fifth High Criminal Court in Izmir, Turkey.

Recep Cetin, appearing in court alongside his alleged accomplice father, Erup Cetin, appealed for the media to be banned because of the effect reports were having on his mental health.

He complained he was being treated like, “a Christian, an atheist or communist” in the trial.

“I am a Muslim. My father is innocent, yet he has been in prison for one and a half years. Camera records show my father was not at the scene,” he added.


Cetin claimed he was suffering from depression because of media coverage of the case and called for the court to remove reporters from the courtroom.

“I have read reports claiming I cut off the victim’s heads,” he said.

“I murdered them, that is true. But the media has reported false allegations.”

Despite his admission of guilt, Cetin defended his father and denied that he had any involvement in the double murder.

“I swear to this country, to this nation, that whatever my father says is true. I am guilty and my guilt is a sufficient punishment for me,” he said.

Cetin’s father told the court he was the victim of a conspiracy. “I have nothing to do with this incident. I am innocent yet I am kept in prison. Neither God nor justice will forgive this,” he said.

The women’s bodies were found in woodland near their holiday resort, in Kusadasi, Turkey. Both were with Ms Graham’s daughter Shannon (16), who had started a relationship with Recep Cetin.

Ms Graham and Ms Dinsmore had hoped to convince Cetin to stop attempting to marry Shannon. They got in a car with Cetin, who said he would take them shopping. Prosecutors allege Cetin drove them to woodlands, stabbed Ms Graham in the chest and cut Ms Dinsmore’s throat.

Police arrested Recep Cetin and the waiter confessed to the killing. He is believed to be 22-years-old, however he insists he is 17 and should be tried as a child.

Cetin is currently being tried alongside his father in an adult court.

The case was adjourned until March 20.

U.S. citizens are reminded to maintain a high level of vigilance .

It goes on for many more pages because no govt. body can say things with a thrift of words.  But what our embassy sends in their updates and newsletters, when they think about sending it, is still cause for concern.  And still, the western deMOCKracies fall over backwards to insure that we maintain a standard of behavior the enemy does not recognize.  Currently (and it’s been going on for awhile) there are many accusations and of course the threat of lawsuits, with regard to torture by the CIA under extraordinary rendition, and witnessed by Brit Intel or if not actually witnessed then with the knowledge of Brit Intel, blah,blah,blah.  So the Brits get dragged into the mess with lawsuits planned against them for what the CIA did or did not do.  Gets hairy. Don’t it?
And it’s all done under the banner of human rights.  Which supposes that the enemy is indeed human.  Which I question in the first place and don’t give a damn in the second. 

Actually, we have to take this kind of thing seriously, especially in light of recent events here, and posted at bmews only in the last week or so.

Welcome to our brave new world, made entirely possible by the libtard left.

The Department of State has issued this Worldwide Caution

to update information on the continuing threat
of terrorist actions and violence against U.S. citizens
and interests throughout the world.

U.S. citizens are reminded to maintain a high level of vigilance and to
take appropriate steps to increase their security
awareness.  This replaces the Worldwide Caution dated
July 18, 2012, to provide updated information on
security threats and terrorist activities worldwide.

The Department of State remains concerned about the
continued threat of terrorist attacks, demonstrations,
and other violent actions against U.S. citizens and
interests overseas.  Current information suggests that
al-Qaida, its affiliated organizations, and other
terrorist organizations continue to plan terrorist
attacks against U.S. interests in multiple regions,
including Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East.
These attacks may employ a wide variety of tactics
including suicide operations, assassinations,
kidnappings, hijackings, and bombings.

Extremists may elect to use conventional or
non-conventional weapons, and target both official and
private interests.  Examples of such targets include
high-profile sporting events, residential areas,
business offices, hotels, clubs, restaurants, places of
worship, schools, public areas, and other tourist
destinations both in the United States and abroad where
U.S. citizens gather in large numbers, including during

U.S. citizens are reminded of the potential for
terrorists to attack public transportation systems and
other tourist infrastructure.  Extremists have targeted
and attempted attacks on subway and rail systems,
aviation, and maritime services.  In the past, these
types of attacks have occurred in cities such as Moscow,
London, Madrid, Glasgow, and New York City.

EUROPE:  Current information suggests that al-Qaida,
its affiliated organizations, and other terrorist groups
continue to plan terrorist attacks against U.S. and
Western interests in Europe.  Additionally, there is a
continuing threat in Europe from unaffiliated persons
planning attacks inspired by major terrorist
organizations but conducted on an individual basis.  On
February 1, 2013, an individual detonated a bomb at a
side entrance to the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, killing one
Embassy guard and injuring others.  The Revolutionary
People’s Liberation Party/Front (Devrimci Halk Kurtulus
Partisi/Cephesi or DHKP/C) claimed responsibility for
the attack on its website.  The DHKP/C has stated its
intention to commit further attacks against the United
States, NATO, and Turkey.  European governments have
taken action to guard against terrorist attacks, and
some have made official declarations regarding
heightened threat conditions.  In the past several
years, attacks have been planned or carried out in
various European countries.  On February 5, the
Bulgarian government announced its judgment that
Hizbollah was responsible for a July 2012 terrorist
attack in Burgas which resulted in the deaths of five
tourists and a bus driver.

pooter problems

Something has gone very wrong with my poor old machine and I’m trying to fix it. It just sits here thrashing the hard drive hour after hour, for no reason that I can find.

I’ve run all the system tune up programs. I’ve run all the malware killer programs. While that helped a tiny bit, and found some naughty cookies and a couple of latent trojans lurking in the background, the machine is still close to dead. And what’s worse, running the Super Anti-Spyware in Full Scan mode took 4 and a half hours ... for a 22Gb disk? No way. And as I sat an watched it, I saw the same directory being swept over and over, file after file. Thousands of them. Tens of thousands of them. So I wrote down that directory, and looked stuff up online.

It turns out that Windows has this issue wherein it tries to cache the entire internet, every last file, on your PC. This is the dreaded “Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5” directory problem. Which is almost the problem I’ve been having. So I read up on that, applied the solutions, cleaned out the files and the local index.dat files ... and still the problem persisted.

It turns out that ... at least for my machine ... I have the same ...\Content.IE5 directory structure hidden deep in WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\config\systemprofile\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\Content.IE5. And down in that hidden directory, once I rest Explorer to make the directory unhidden, I found dozens of subdirectories, some old some new, and each one had THOUSANDS of small files in it. Thousands! Every little arrow, button, background color .gif, URL, page header ... blah blah ... every last bit of every web page visited. Funny thing, not only do I not even have IE5 on this machine any longer, I rarely even use IE. I even uninstalled Chrome because we just didn’t get along.

And not one of the articles I saw mentioned the shadow copy of the files hiding down in SYSTEM32. Strange.

So I’ve spent many hours cleaning ... nearly 5Gb worth of crap off of this machine. Finally I opened a DOS window and did things the old fashioned way, rmdir /s [directory name], because killing the files with Explorer and then emptying the Recycle Bin of gigs worth of files was taking forever.

It’s finally done. I’ll post this, then try to reboot the system. Assuming that I haven’t utterly killed the PC, I can then run the FileAssassin tool to delete further instances of Content.IE5s index.dat files on reboot - both of them, the visible one and the invisible one. Then I can pull up Control Panel and IE8 or whatever version that damn browser is and make sure all the caching settings are set to Off or to as small a size as allowed. And cross my fingers once again.

another piece of Hollywood’s Brit-bashing junk history that casts us in a poor light.

I didn’t see the movie, and doubt I will til it appears on DVD.  But I do know there is truth to this claim of distorted history. It would be unimaginable that Brits would turn Americans in danger, away.  Yes I know.  It’s only a movie. But.  No. It isn’t “only” a movie.  It is telling the story of an American escape from mindless, violent idiots, who think their god requires that they stick their collective asses in the air in order to pray. But never mind all of that.
Brits have been, according to what I am reading in the papers here, badly used.  If you have seen this movie, perhaps you can enlighten the Brits and Americans like myself.  This was not just something added for theatrics.  Like a car chase added to a movie to make it more exciting. And btw, they did that here too although there was no chase.  But that’s forgivable and easy to understand.  Less forgivable I think is to portray the Brits as the movie does.  The Brits WERE NOT the heavies in this saga folks.  But you can bet that there are a million Americans who having seen this will believe it’s the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but.

I’ve watched the trailer, and if the loud screaming vocal that’s supposed to pass for music is a large part of the background, I may never see this film. I guess screaming the lyrics means the singer has ‘soul.’ What rubbish!

An Oscar for sneering at the British: Ben Affleck’s Argo joins the long list of films that bend the truth to suit Hollywood for claiming we TURNED AWAY Iran hostages

Film packed with inaccuracies regarding the British involvement in Iranian revolution

In Ben Affleck’s version six U.S. embassy staff were refused sanctuary by British diplomats - quite the opposite of what happened

By Guy Walters

What does Hollywood have against the British? Once again on Oscar night, Tinsel Town gave warmly to us with one hand — while cynically taking away with the other.

The good news is that at least nine Britons will fly back across the Atlantic with coveted golden statues.

But the bad news is that Argo — the movie that won Best Film — is yet another piece of Hollywood’s Brit-bashing junk history that casts us in a poor light.

Although the movie is a cracker — tense and terrifying — like so much that comes out Hollywood, Argo plays fast and loose with the facts. And unsurprisingly, the Brits are given a real pasting. For, according to the Affleck version of the rescue mission, the six embassy staff were refused refuge by British diplomats. ‘Brits turned them away,’ says a senior CIA character in the film.

You can imagine the outraged comments over industrial buckets of popcorn in movie theatres from Alabama to Alaska. ‘Goddamn Limeys! So that’s what we get for bailing them out during World War II.’

The truth, however, could not be more different. The British did give their American colleagues sanctuary. Far from being cowards, the Brits were heroes. Many of the British diplomats then stationed in Iran are still alive — and they’re fuming.

‘When I first heard about this film, I was really quite annoyed,’ says Sir John Graham, 86, who was our man in Tehran at the time of the crisis. Sir John is understandably concerned that Argo will become accepted as the definitive history of what happened. He may have a point.

just a personal note and another bizarre example of the kiddies in charge

As most of our regulars here know, my wife has not been in the very best of health for some time, and I’ve been caring for her.  She is not confined in any way except for the pain that restricts where she goes and how she moves.  So it’s been a nerve wracking experience for us both, and at the moment I’m a bit less than I want to be health wise myself.  Although in truth far better than she is.  She can drive short distances, which is pretty scary cos all the damn pills she is on do have an adverse affect.  Never really great at judging distance, she’s all the worse now; but heaven forbid you warn her of an approaching car she is determined to pull in front of.  I was certain it was curtains earlier today.  A bit misty, some drizzle, bone chilling cold.  So there we were at a stop, getting ready to turn onto another road. A car coming from our right with lights on, not that far from us but I admit not right on top of us either, and she decides she can go, then hesitates and then decides to pull out onto the road.  But this time that car is now pretty damn close and I had to shout at her to get her to stop.  She did and so I’m here to tell about it.  Whew. 

With all the meds the wife is on, you would think she’d be on a perpetual high. But no.  She is one of those people, and there are a few, who are “resistant” to medications.  So she’s loaded on the damn stuff but it’s doing F***all with regard to pain.  In the next few months I want to get her back home to see docs there.  Something ain’t right and there’s no help here that I can see.
So meanwhile I’m the one who hears, when she isn’t aware of it, the groans and moans when a spasm hits her.  Which is too often.
Unfortunately, she gave up her Medicare last year in order to save the money, since after all we are living here and not in the USA. Not the best idea we could have come up with.  I say “we” because I didn’t argue against it.  I just allowed it to happen when I could have done otherwise. So yeah.  “We” is correct.
And pretty damn short sighted “we” were.

Now as for meself.  There are times over the last few weeks when it’s been very difficult sitting at a puter and too often not feeling up to much.  Sometime so tired I fall asleep at the keyboard. And I’m not on near the meds my wife is.  I have other issues, hope to resolve some as tests are scheduled next month.
But it’s on and off difficult and so I’ll do what I can while I can.  Hate to let the side down.  Feelings of guilt I think I trace back to grandad who preached that there weren’t any excuses for time off for anything and even being dead didn’t count.  He’d expect you back at the job right after your funeral.

He’d ask if you were bleeding if you said you didn’t feel well and couldn’t go to work.  If you weren’t bleeding, he said there wasn’t anything wrong with you.
He had a very slight European accent and he’d say, “If it don’t come blood, it don’t hurt.”
So I really do have feelings of some guilt when I miss posting here.  Unfortunately for now however, there will be a day or so I’m gonna miss, and some days posts won’t be very many.

Like today.  There are three stories I want to share. I don’t like to cos it’s so much of the same old thing. But I just feel compelled because I want folks to know just what is going on here. Yeah I know you already know.  But it really isn’t exactly like preaching to the choir.  Not exactly.  It’s that when I run across a story like that which follows, I feel compelled to share that exact insanity.  I would guess that quite a few reading this will want to share it also. It’s sort of like a car wreck.  People just can’t help stopping and looking. 

See for yourself.  Is something badly off the rails here er what?

Head teacher and five staff suspended for locking a knife-wielding nine-year-old pupil in the ‘naughty cupboard’

Child carried blade taken from the kitchen at Revoe Primary in Blackpool

He was disarmed and put in a lockable ‘naughty cupboard’ to calm down

Staff suspended and police investigating false imprisonment

By Martin Robinson

Fury has erupted at a small primary school because its headteacher and five others have been suspended after they disarmed a knife-wielding child and shut him in a ‘naughty cupboard’.

Teachers placed the nine-year-old in a lockable room after he terrorised staff and fellow pupils with a blade he took from the kitchen at Revoe Primary School in Blackpool.

But police have been called in to investigate allegations of false imprisonment and the six staff, including the head, have been banned from returning because the boy’s parents complained.

The pupil had taken the knife from the kitchen area and was confronted by head Cath Woodall on a school corridor.

She blocked the boy’s path through the school and he started to kick out at her.

Other senior members of staff at the town centre school then put the boy in a Home Office approved hold.

He was placed in the small room with a glass window to try and calm him down.

However, a complaint has been made and the local education authority called in police to investigate.

#2 Court demands IL draft concealed carry law.

For Immediate Release:  2/22/2013

BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation today won a significant victory for concealed carry when the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals let stand a December ruling by a three-judge panel of the court that forces Illinois to adopt a concealed carry law, thus affirming that the right to bear arms exists outside the home.

The ruling came in Moore v. Madigan, a case filed by SAF. The December opinion that now stands was written by Judge Richard Posner, who gave the Illinois legislature 180 days to “craft a new gun law that will impose reasonable limitations, consistent with the public safety and the Second Amendment…on the carrying of guns in public.” That clock is ticking, noted SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb.

“Illinois lawmakers need to create some kind of licensing system or face the prospect of not having any regulations at all when Judge Posner’s deadline arrives,” Gottlieb said. “They need to act. They can no longer run and hide from this mandate.”

“We were delighted with Judge Posner’s ruling in December,” he continued, “and today’s decision by the entire circuit to allow his ruling to stand is a major victory, and not just for gun owners in Illinois. Judge Posner’s ruling affirmed that the right to keep and bear arms, itself, extends beyond the boundary of one’s front door.”

In December, Judge Posner wrote, “The right to ‘bear’ as distinct from the right to ‘keep’ arms is unlikely to refer to the home. To speak of ‘bearing’ arms within one’s home would at all times have been an awkward usage. A right to bear arms thus implies a right to carry a loaded gun outside the home.”

Judge Posner subsequently added, “To confine the right to be armed to the home is to divorce the Second Amendment from the right of self-defense described in Heller and McDonald.”

Read the rest and mark your calenders. I want to see just what happens in Illinois with this one.

Oh, and by the way





Zak’s book Back To Basics For The Republican Party is an important addition to any Conservative bookshelf. It’s not a big book, but it will put you in touch with some roots you’d be hard pressed to believe given today’s lying media.

Let’s remember, no matter who bears the brunt of any gun control laws, they are always and forever Black Control laws first and foremost, brought to you by the party of slavery. ALWAYS.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
