    (Excerpted) 1. Liberals just want to take away guns, just like Hitler: If I had five bucks for every time I’ve witnessed Godwin’s Law in action, I’d be sitting on the front porch of my vacation home in the Bahamas, looking at my 55′ sportfisher tied up to the dock. Almost every gun nut you deal with will inevitably mention Hitler, because gun nuts have been conditioned by the NRA to point to Nazi Germany as proof that the march to fascism and tyranny involves stricter regulation of guns. Except, there’s this one little fact: In 1938, under Nazi rule,...

    Theres a reason Republicans have been rushing to try and defund the Affordable Care Act before October 1, when major sections of the law take effect. Republicans know what polls show that most Americans dont know whats in ObamaCare, but when told what the law actually includes, a strong majority support the law. Once state health insurance exchanges take effect, and premiums for all Americans go down, Republicans know the law will only become more popular and harder to repeal. As Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell said, It's a lot harder to undo something than it is to...

Deniers, sometimes aptly called confusionists, want to mislead us so our leaders wont move to battle the scourge of our time. Because if leaders act, profits of the fossil fuel companies and the whole fake universe of climate denial will come crashing down. Climate deniers are gearing up for an event they really fear: the release next week of the fifth Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change,...

    Eating more insects could help fight world hunger, according to a new UN report. The report by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization says that eating insects could help boost nutrition and reduce pollution. It notes than over 2 billion people worldwide already supplement their diet with insects. However it admits that "consumer disgust" remains a large barrier in many Western countries. Wasps, beetles and other insects are currently "underutilised" as food for people and livestock, the report says. Insect farming is "one of the many ways to address food and feed security". "Insects are everywhere and they reproduce quickly,...

    MADISON, Wis. -- Wisconsin's Democratic Party spokesman has been removed from his position after comparing Republican Gov. Scott Walker with serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer. Graeme Zielinski made the comments in three tweets after prosecutors announced Friday they closed an investigation involving Walker's former aides and associates. Zielinski apologized over Twitter both to Walker and to Dahmer's victims. Party spokesman Melissa Baldauff said Monday that Zielinski has been removed as spokesman, docked a week's pay worth about $1,000, and will no longer be permitted to post on Twitter. He will continue working for the Democratic Party as an adviser. Walker was...

    Thousands of President Obama supporters turned out in in Madison, Wisc., for a rally following Wednesday nights debate in Denver. The mood was somber, to say the least, as they waited to enter Bascom Mall at the University of Wisconsin Thursday afternoon. University of Wisconsin students and fellow Wisconsinites had mixed reviews on the president's performance. I talked to supporters of the president who had watched the debate, asking how they thought the president did. One after the other said they were left unimpressed and not inspired, seemingly depressed and lethargic in their continuing support of the president. More than...

Sounds crazy, doesnt it? But you would have to be crazy not to shift your green power purchases onto U.S. taxpayers if laws provide for it. And what city wouldnt want to do it if it could cover it up as part of their compliance with AB 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006? San Francisco is gaming the system, just as Enron supposedly did in the 2001 state energy...

    Liberals take hypocrisy so far over the top, it almost seems deliberate. For example, if they arent attacking their betters for being racists, then its for being white despite the moonbats usually being white themselves. Note that Cher, who is several decades past the expiration date for sleazy pop stars in fishnets, also ridicules countermoonbats for being old. Well-heeled elitist moonbats like Cher emulate their Moonbat Messiah in denouncing the rich by which they must mean the despised middle class. They are quick to characterize their opponents as bigots, but even quicker to spew bigotry at Christians and...

    This is the best headline of the week: Multimillionaire Elizabeth Warren: Im not wealthy. What makes it even more delectable is that it was posted on a moonbat website, which quickly yanked it down. The truth can be a dangerous thing. Theres something about Democrat Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren that reminds me of Granny Clampett of the Beverly Hillbillies. Shes younger, I know, and her face isnt as emaciated. But shes got the same hair and glasses. And they both wander around perpetually grumpy, Granny C with her squirrel rifle, Granny W with her law books both utterly oblivious...

    Two weeks worth of AARs in this report. Last week got away from me. WEEK 313, JANUARY 21,2012God looked down upon us this Saturday. The night before a little over an inch of snow fell. Streets were predicted to be icy and as the morning wore on, an icy cold rain was to continue. But as I said, God was pleased with our support of the troops and the rain basically stopped. The roads were just wet and the shopping center had shoveled the corner. With the anticipated rain, we only put up the flanking flags. Plus with the snow...

    I had to laugh when I opened the photobucket file for this week. [Mrs] T said that she didnt take a lot of pictures. But only FIVE - it just made me laugh. Part of the reason was that the camera got so cold so quick that the batteries lost their umph. The other reason was [Mrs] Ts trigger finger also got real cold even though she was layered with foot and hand warmers. How cold was it? 25 degrees with a moderate wind. Do I hear violins from some of you in North Dakota? I bet you do not...

  • A Fine for Not Using a Biofuel That Doesnt Exist

    WASHINGTON When the companies that supply motor fuel close the books on 2011, they will pay about $6.8 million in penalties to the Treasury because they failed to mix a special type of biofuel into their gasoline and diesel as required by law. But there was none to be had. Outside a handful of laboratories and workshops, the ingredient, cellulosic biofuel, does not exist. In 2012, the oil companies expect to pay even higher penalties for failing to blend in the fuel, which is made from wood chips or the inedible parts of plants like corncobs. Refiners were required...

    Seven Patriots supported our troops in Olney this morning of New Years Eve. Our special guest today was 3DJoy who brought up some warm southern temps for the DC area the past 10 days. Some spring bulbs even started to come up. While I was in the sun, I had to remove my jacket. Of course when the shade over took my spot, it got a little chilly and back on went the jacket. We also had a newbie today. Martin from [Mrs] Ts and Cindy_True_Supporters American Legion Post. Martin had such a good time waving, talking with every one...
  • The Five: Why Would Ron Paul Fill His Ad With Only Liberal Supporters?

    Today on The Five, the gang discussed Sarah Palins talk of possible third party candidates and focused on Ron Paul. After Eric Bolling joked that Pauls fans may be too stoned to make it to the polls, the topic of conversation turned to a recent ad for Paul which featured a number of liberal commentators. The hosts questioned whether it would be effective or simply a turn off. The ad, entitled Believe, will be airing in New Hampshire and Boston and features Ron Paul supporters talking up the candidates strengths and ideals. Amongst them are quotes and sound bites taken...

    The New York Times ^ | 12/29/2011 | PAUL KRUGMAN
    The boom, not the slump, is the right time for austerity at the Treasury. So declared John Maynard Keynes in 1937, even as F.D.R. was about to prove him right by trying to balance the budget too soon, sending the United States economy which had been steadily recovering up to that point into a severe recession. Slashing government spending in a depressed economy depresses the economy further; austerity should wait until a strong recovery is well under way. Unfortunately, in late 2010 and early 2011, politicians and policy makers in much of the Western world believed that they...

    PETA has asked the Department of Transportation in Illinois to commemorate the spot where 16 cows lost their life on May 22 in a traffic accident says a report in the Chicago Tribune. The cows plunged from the back of a tractor trailer when it jackknifed on a bridge on an I-80 highway overpass. Im wondering if we could just have a memorial BBQ. Ill bring the grill. Now, before you start laughing remember: This is Illinois. Yes, that state.You know how people warn you about avoiding stupid mistakes by saying, You dont want to be that guy.Well, ladies and...
