Saturday Open Thread – February 2nd

Tomb of the Unknown ChristmasOur Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy Name. Thy kingdom come. THY WILL BE DONE, on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us. And lead us not into temptation, but DELIVER US FROM EVIL.

For Thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory, forever and ever. Amen †

  2. “his focus would be on strategic communications” politics editor Glen Johnson is resigning to take a post as a senior State Department adviser, working for John F. Kerry.

    Johnson, 50, a 27-year journalism veteran who has covered five presidential elections, said his focus would be on strategic communications.

    Many great comments at the link. Boston conservatives are still Bostonians, and even more acidic with their wit, if you can believe it, as the folks who elect Kennedys and Kerrys.

    “What is different? He always was on his staff.”
    “Finally making it official.”

    and my personal favorite:

    “Can we sinmply [sic] call him Goebbels now?”

    Indeed. WTF is “strategic communications”?
    WASF. I wanted to see if I coined it. Googled it. Indeed I did not.
    also: will put you some knowledge re: world events, much more.

    Stop the presses!! Obama is a real gun guy and one of us after all! There is now evidence to prove that he indeed, does shoot skeet at Camp David!!

    But who the hell shoots skeet down low, on the ground? What a fuc*in’ poser!

    Concerning our guns in the context of God-given rights:

    Aside from this LEO going apescat, is he *seriouly* holding that gun sideways/thug style?
    “When the case went to court, the prosecutor wouldn’t press charges because he didn’t think the jury would prosecute”

    No chit Cherlock…. 👿

    Gotta explain my temperament re the above post. My BS meter just pegged the needle. The LA GOP just called asking for a donation AGAIN! 👿 I told him, and this is a quote:

    “Don’t call me again until you guys grow a pair and make a PUBLIC announcement that you intend to stand between me and that jackass in the oval office in reference to my 2A rights.”

    He started babbling about “if New York wants to give their guns away”, to which I yelled “I don’t give a scat about the lily livers in New York, talk to me about LOUISIANA!”
    Then he blubbered about “LA just passed the strongest gun law in the nation”, to which I responded “yeah, but will that law protect ME against that jackass I just referenced”? He had no answer.
    I’m sure at that point he wanted to end the call, but I insisted that he listen as I informed him that, as a law abiding responsible gun owner I’ve never even aimed a gun at a living thing that didn’t have feathers or four legs, that I’ve been a Republican my entire adult life, because the GOP is “supposed” to be about conservative values and Constitutional rights, but *my* party has apparently abandoned me, conservative values *and* the Constitution.

    He wanted to know if I wanted to be kept informed via email of their efforts re 2A. I told him NO, I just said I’m DONE with the spineless GOP, and told him in my sweetest, most sarcastic Southern Belle voice “Bless your heart, you have a nice day now, ya hear?” and hung up.

    I’m changing my voter registration to “I”. Stick a fork in me, I’m done.

    First Hour: Interview with Police Chief Mark Kessler on Unconstitutional Gun Control

    January 24, 2013 in Gilberton Pennsylvania, Police Chief Mark Kessler said he has drawn the line in the sand, and will stand with Freedom Over Tyranny as he and the city unanimously passed a resolution that says they will not comply or enforce any new laws infringing on the 2nd amendment.

    Second Hour: Interview with Stan Deyo on preparedness.

    Stan will be talking to us about his wife Holly Deyo’s comprehensive preparedness book “Dare To Prepare”. A lot of people ask “why the nameDare To Prepare?”. They understand “prepare” but “dare” is puzzling. Some think it’s just a catchy title, but there’s more. Those who choose to prepare have acknowledged, on some level, that things are changing all around us rapidly. Sometimes it feels like it’s more than we can deal with. We get overwhelmed thinking can I do this? This book can help answer that question.

    Remember,preparedness is not waiting for the government to bail us out of trouble; it IS taking personal responsibility. It IS. . . daring to prepare!

      So they’ve been watching him for years, steal 548 handguns, 317 rifles from his home and 599 pistols from his office but no charges have been filed? Call me crazy, but I would think if you had been watching a person for years suspecting him of smuggling guns, tax evasion, etc. then by the time you had enough info to confiscate his weapons then you should have enough evidence to charge him with a crime.

      Who wants to bet either they scare the crap out of him and pressure him into giving up his guns in exchange for no charges ever being filed or the guns just magically disappear when he demands them returned if they have nothing on him.

      I don’t think I’ve ever even saw that many guns in one place, but if someone wants to own 10,000 guns it is their God given right.

    The other day we were talking about Selco’s survival blog in passing – here it is. For you noobs, it’s an excellent read with real life experiences and advice in it.

    Dem Rep. Gwen Moore: Second Amendment Could Lead To People Owning Nuclear Weapons, Submarines…

    “Where are we going with this? I mean, do individuals get to own nuclear weapons? Do they get to own submarines, with this notion that they have a right to bear arms? No.”

    Hey cats and kittens! Who’s re-organizing their retirement plans? Lol.
    Powerball jackpot tonight is listed at 176 $Million fiat dollars (111 $M with “cash” option).
    Not sure how much that works out to in actual money.

    The contagion spreads. 6 of Canada’s major banks downgraded by Moody’s. RBC was previously downgraded, so is not included in this most recent list.
    Canada’s housing market is most definitely in a bubble. Property prices are even higher (in inflation adjusted dollars) than the last bubble of the late 1980’s.

    HAH! Don’t photo shop the jackass’s stupid photoshopped gun pic?

    Have fun folks. This is a list of MANY sources of photoshopped pics of the jackass and the amazing no recoil, nothin but smoke gun. 🙂

    Benghazi update (sortof). Proof that the Intel community completely repudiates teh Won.
    Never a good idea to launch a war against your own Intel services. Maybe the “H” in Barack H. Obama actually stands for “Hubris”.

    • michellc says:

      Just read this on The Blaze. It says the suspect has military training. I know it’s probably just my tin foil hat making me think such a thing, but there sure seems to be an abnormal amount of Seals dying since the bozo has been in the WH.


      • elvischupacabra says:

        According to the WFAA story posted above, Kyle and a neighbor of his were helping a soldier suffering from PTSD, and they were all at the event. I think it’s a lot more tragic than it is conspiratorial.


        • michellc says:

          I guess he shot them both in the back according to the latest reports. So this one may just be a guy not right in the head, but we’ve had far too many seals die and most of them the finger can be pointed right at the man sitting in the WH.

          I’m just at the point where I’m questioning everything. In my lifetime I’ve never saw so many things happening at once, mass shootings, “routine” military training in American cities, ATF arming criminals, etc. and so much of it plays into the gun control debate and what doesn’t play into the gun control debate plays into the making us weaker.


          • auscitizenmom says:

            I wonder what kind of meds he was on, and which psychiatrist he was seeing. That was my first thought. I am also at the point of question everything I see or hear.

    The one bright spot (if one can even claim to find one) is that a killer in TX gets a place in the Death Penalty Express Lane.

    We’ve lost another hero. 😦
