    Female Texas State Trooper who sexually-violated female driver during roadside search has been FIRED!!!

    Good riddance! She should go to jail, too! Miserable scrunt gives every cop on the street a bad name. Good guys +1!

    • RJ says:

      second that, I bout fell outta my chair when I saw that video. She shoulda been canned as soon as her Sgt became aware of the search.

    By Associated Press, Updated: Thursday, January 31, 9:23 AM
    WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will let his jobs council expire this week without renewing its charter, winding down one source of input from the business community even as unemployment remains stubbornly high.

    My phone just rang:

    “Hello?”

    “This is Cindy with the Claims Assistance Group. I am conducting a survey to see if you or anyone in your household is interested in getting Social Security Disability…”

    “Click.”

    She didn’t ask if anyone is eligible, or God-forbid, actually disabled/unable to work. Just if we wanted it.

    Now we know how 8 million, plus went on SSDI during term one. I’d bet money that these people get paid for claims assistance. Infuriating.

        Notta, you should not put up the home pictures of Mr Walker. It’s not nice and besides there might be some female ape in the zoo somewhere using him for a pin up.

  5. RJM says:

    Nota, you really shouldn’t be posting pictures of yourself and your weapons. You are telling everyone that you are easy and a target for home invaders to steal those weapons.

    • notamobster says:

      Funny.

      If I’m ever that guy, I’ll be eating that pistol, not posing with it. Um, no offense to any of our readers, if you are in fact, the random creepy guy in the picture.

    This was a drive home from the nearest store, back in September. It’s shaky, but it’s all dirt roads. Anyone who’s ever lived on a dirt road can tell you. They’re bumpy.

    RD, I loved the view from the front seat of your convertible as you drove to work this am. I’m a Ford guy but have always said GM has the best heaters and defrosters. Did you accumulate any snow in the back seat? We did have ours out on New Years Day. Cold, but no snow.

    You. are. the. man.

    • Uke says:

      At a buck a round, you ain’t kidding about it being expensive. I think I’ll just sit on what I have and reload my brass with 75gr OTMs when I shoot through the can.

    • Uke says:

      And it’s gone anyway, lol.

      When I posted at noon, there were exactly 33 cans left. Out of stock now.

      • notamobster says:

        Yep. I remember a year ago .50 BMG was $5 per for reloads. This is just crazy.

        The GSG-522 that I paid $260 for (on sale) , is now close to $500 most places AND out-of-stock. It was averaging $350 last year.

      Interesting that it has lat and long on it…

      • Jim22 says:

        Looks like Lat/Long is off by a quarter mile or so. The BG’s were close to the canal.

        That’s not unusual. When you get outside of the US or Canada the maps are frequently off by more than that.

        • R.D. Walker says:

          I was wondering if the coordinates might have been where the observing device itself was rather than where it was targeting.

    • Uke says:

      I don’t think it’s my imagination that I saw little jihadi chunks go flying off at warp speed. :)

    I just finished a one hour tv program on our local broom closet pbs. It was the Best of Soul Train with Don Cornelious. It was very good. Curtis Mayfield, Smokey Robinson, Aretha Franklin, Lou Rawls, Stevie Wonder, Barry White, and many others. If you didn’t know, I like mo-town. If you see it advertised, it’s worth your time.

    • notamobster says:

      Love me some Motown. Old soul music rocks!
      Teddy Pendergrass (Love TKO), Mary Wells, Martha & The Vandellas, The Temptations, Gladys… Great music my brother!

      Further back, the parents of soul music, old soulful jazz:

      Billie Holiday. Satchmo. Count Bassie. Ella Fitzgerald… I turned my wife on to Lady Day and Satchmo. I love the old jam sessions these folks used to have. Incredible music.

    White House Warns: DO NOT SHOOP THIS PIC!

    I mean… wow. I might have to buy Photoshop just to do so repeatedly.

    • R.D. Walker says:

      I predict that it will be the most Photoshopped photo in history.

      • Uke says:

        Seriously! We can even combine memes! Combine the “Shootin’ Barry” meme with the “Obama Was There” meme and voila! Suddenly Barry is shooting jihadis in Iraq, taking down Osama in Pakistan, blasting at Charlie in the Ia Drang, even storming the beaches of Normandy in a black and white gen-you-wine photograph!

      Don’t worry. Unlike the AR-15, that’s one of those good guns that you can safely fire at school children.

  13. BaconNeggs says:

    Which is it, Faith Hope and Charity or Faith Hope and Love?

    Today I accompanied my wife to Church and struck by the sermon, of St Pauls definition of Love…”Faith Hope and Love and of the three, Love is the greatest”.

    St Pauls definition of Love seemed perfect but I could not recall ever reading it in the Bible as a child, and so I did a quick online search and found that it differs depending on which Bible – the 1611 King James version which speaks of Faith Hope and Charity or the Modern Bibles which speaks of Faith Hope and Love.

    To me Charity and Love are different things so its a bit puzzling why Love have replaced Charity in the earlier Bibles.

    Anyway, I am just think out loud here, maybe some of you have had similar thoughts.

    Reason #5,792 to get the hell out of Chicago:

    http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2013/02/04/chicago-police-changing-response-plan-for-some-911-calls/

    Cops won’t respond to burglaries, break-ins or property damage. Or more accurately “won’t respond immediately” anymore. You see, they need to have cops on patrol to keep the number of shootings down. So, if you’re out and about and call 911 because 4 guys are carjacking you, I guess you’re on your own. Oh, and remember, the copes won’t come AND you’re not allowed to have a gun.

    Gee, I wonder if this combination might, maybe, I don’t know…..’embolden’ the criminal element a tad? Nah.

      Had another interview today. Went well, I thought – but I don’t seem to know what a god interview is these days. That said I should hear back either way within a week, but I’ve been led to a lot, lately. Why can’t people just shoot straight?

    “Survivor – Texas Style”

    Due to the popularity of the “Survivor” TV show, Texas is planning to do one entitled: “Survivor – Texas-Style!”

    The lucky contestants will all start in Dallas, drive to Waco, Austin, San Antonio, then over to Houston and down to Brownsville.

    They will then proceed up to Del Rio, El Paso, Odessa, Midland, Lubbock, and Amarillo. From there they will go on to Abilene and Fort Worth. Finally back to Dallas.

    Each contestant will be driving a pink Prius with 15 bumper stickers which will read:

    1. “I’m A Democrat”
    2. “Amnesty For Illegals”
    3. “I Love The Dixie Chicks”
    4. “Boycott Beef”
    5. “I Voted For Obama”
    6. “George Strait Sucks”
    7. “Re-elect Obama In 2016″
    8. “Vote Eric Holder Texas Governor”
    9. “Rosie O’Donnell Is Texas Born”
    10. “I Love Obama Care and Chuck Schumer”
    11. “Barney Frank Is My Hero”
    12. “I Side With Jane Fonda”
    13. “It’s Bush’s Fault”
    14. “Islam Is A Peace-Loving Religion”

    and the last sticker is…
    15. “I’m Here To Confiscate Your Guns”

    The first contestant to make it back to Dallas alive wins.
