This is my first time publishing a Freaky Friday Caption Contest. For my first time, I am going to experiment and try something different. For this contest, there is an actual theme. I will give one clue: Indianapolis. I may give clues as the day goes on. See if you can figure it out.
From the hill… Hell, even Democrats are opposed to this crime-nibus bill. Granted, they are opposed because it doesn’t spend enough of China’s money, but opposed they are.
Congress is taking a series of actions today on legislation that would prevent a lapse in appropriations and allow for continued Government operations. We continue to believe that time remains for Congress to pass full-year appropriations for FY 2015, and prevent a government shutdown,” an OMB official said in a statement.
“However, out of an abundance of caution, we are working with agencies and taking steps to prepare for all contingencies, including a potential lapse in funding.”
While the White House still doesn’t believe a shutdown is likely, the call came as lawmakers looked for the votes to pass a $1.1 trillion spending bill unveiled earlier this week.
While President Obama backed the bill despite provisions that would roll back elements of the Dodd-Frank financial reform bill and reduce limits on campaign contributions, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said she would not be backing the legislation.
Attacking the CIA is not the smartest thing she has ever done. It appears that she believes she is somehow immune from retribution. Sitting Senators often think things like that.
Someone should caution Diane Feinstein… ‘You don’t tug on Superman’s cape,’ and you definitely DO NOT play Truth or Dare with ‘crazies’ in the C-I-A!”
If Diane Feinstein is trying to play a dangerous game of Truth or Dare with the Central Intelligence Agency, many insiders believe there can only be one winner walking away from this most recent confrontation.”

I admit, I miss out on a lot of things here. I might have missed out on this one. This story has been in the news for a while. A Department of Homeland Security Procurement Specialist by day acts as genocidal racist Revolutionary by night. When videos like the one that follows surfaced, he was placed on administrative leave.
Let it be no wonder that those who have engaged in acts of racially motivated mass violence since this video and many more like them have been made and broadcast to the public, do get to see dynamic speakers like this live and in person. They are everywhere. There is nothing new under the Sun with these people. I’ve been hearing this stuff for Decades. They are in a City near you right now, doing what they do. They will not be dealt with effectively by Law Enforcement.
This will not end well. The big question is the one that seems to get everybody in trouble so maybe I won’t state that question here. Again I say that I am not here to promote Fear or Hatred. I am here to promote Understanding. If you are ever forced into a physical confrontation as a result of the current and ongoing Civil Unrest it will be important for you to understand exactly what it is that you are up against so that you will be able to make the most informed decision possible when it comes to Fight or Flight. When you make your choice you must then execute the course of action with firm resolve. At the very least the life you will save will be your own.
What the hell does “prepare for action” mean and to whom would such a message be directed?
A mixture of human and computer error caused a “Civil Emergency” alert to be sent to thousands of cell phones in Southern Kentucky Tuesday, the Kentucky Emergency Management office said.
There was never an emergency and the alert was sent out during testing at the Emergency Operations Center in Frankfort, spokesman Buddy Rogers said.
According to Rogers, during the testing on Tuesday a computer error, followed by a human error caused the alert to be sent the to people in the Corbin and London areas of Southern Kentucky.
The alert was only sent to cell phones via the Federal Communication Commission’s Wireless Emergency Alert system, Rogers said.
According to the FCC, the Wireless Emergency Alert system is a public safety system that allows customers who own certain wireless phone models and other enabled mobile devices to receive geographically-targeted, text-like messages alerting them of imminent threats to safety in their area.
I know, it’s futile in the long term, but it actually works for some short-term issues. It’s quick and fairly painless. Call them.

A 19-year-old woman was burned alive in the US after being beaten and having lighter fluid poured down her throat.
A murder investigation has been launched in Panola County, Mississippi, after Jessica Chambers’ death on Saturday. Her family said she used her last words to describe her killer to paramedics.
Firefighters called to her burning car in Courtland found her walking down the road on fire, her father said, and she died of severe burns later in hospital.
“They squirted lighter fluid down her throat and in her nose, and apparently they knocked her out,” Ben Chambers told television station WDBD-TV. “She had a big gash on top of her head.
“When the fire department got there, she was walking down the road on fire … only part of her body that wasn’t burned was the bottom of her feet.”
Mr Chambers, who works for the Panola Country Sheriff’s Department as a mechanic, said she used her last breaths to try and tell paramedics who attacked her, although police said they could not confirm the claim.
“She told them, she told them, told him who done it,” he said.
Miss Chambers was flown to a specialist hospital unit in Memphis but died. Post-mortem results showed she died of severe burns covering 98 per cent of her body.
WaPo has an outline of the contents. [My commentary is in bold/brackets.]
The bill once again bans using federal funding to perform most abortions; blocks the use of local and federal funding for abortions in the District of Columbia; and blocks the use of federal dollars for abortions for federal prisoners. Republicans say that there’s also new language directing the secretary of health and human services to ensure that consumers shopping for health-care coverage on the federal exchange can tell whether a plan covers abortion services. [Blocking funding for abortions is always a win.]
AFFORDABLE CARE ACT:
The law is still funded, but there’s no new money for it. [This means that they are getting the same amount as last year. It is a shameful betrayal of the people who elected Republicans to congress. Nothing will change. If they are trying to provoke the people to armed insurrection, it’s working.]
The bill would dramatically expand the amount of money that wealthy political donors could inject into the national parties, drastically undercutting the 2002 landmark McCain-Feingold campaign finance overhaul. Bottom line: A donor who gave the maximum $32,400 this year to the Democratic National Committee or Republican National Committee would be able to donate another $291,600 on top of that to the party’s additional arms — a total of $324,000, ten times the current limit. [I support the right of corporations to have a voice in the electoral process. This though, is beyond ridiculous. This is outright buying favors. I want someone to argue the other side of this, please – as I haven’t given it much thought.]
CLEAN WATER ACT:
In a win for Republicans, the spending bill blocks the Environmental Protection Agency from applying the law to certain farm ponds and irrigation ditches — a move that GOP aides said would benefit farmers.[Win.]

On the way to work this morning, a local radio station reported on a “Christmas Poll”. The poll asked people, “What is purpose of Christmas?”
The results were more disappointing than even I expected….

“The Clinton mode of production, then, is running for office or serving in office. That is the material basis for the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton lifestyle and the whole Clinton institutional structure. In order to keep this mode of production from breaking down, the Clintons–one of them, at any rate–must be at least potentially in the running for a powerful office at all times.” – A Marxist Analysis of Hillary

“Only a government that lives like cockroaches in the darkness would pass a law criminalizing the act of turning on the light.” Not unlike gun control – there is only one reason that the government would prevent you from defending yourself with voice & audio recordings of public officials acting in a public capacity. They mean to be stronger than you, so they can control you without you fighting back.
In March of this year the Illinois Supreme Court struck down the state’s eavesdropping law, and rightfully so, as it was touted as the most unconstitutional law of its kind in the country[…]
The Amendment to Senate Bill 1342 was introduced on Tuesday, Dec. 2, as an amendment to an existing bill on a completely different subject. The amendment removed all of the bill’s previous content and replaced it with the new ban on recording. The House passed it the following day, and the Senate passed it the day after that.
This bill passed both the Illinois House and Senate with overwhelming majority votes; 106-7 in the House on and 46-4-1 in the Senate[…]
According to IllinoisPolicy.org, the bill discourages people from recording conversations with police by making unlawfully recording a conversation with police – or an attorney general, assistant attorney general, state’s attorney, assistant state’s attorney or judge – a class 3 felony, which carries a sentence of two to four years in prison. Meanwhile, the bill makes illegal recording of a private citizen a class 4 felony, which carries a lower sentencing range of one to three years in prison[…]
Below is some of the vague wording from this legislation.
(a) Eavesdropping, for a first offense, is a Class 4 felony (from Ch. 38, par. 14-4) and, for a second or subsequent offense, is a Class 3 felony. (b) The eavesdropping of an oral conversation or an electronic communication of between any law enforcement officer, State’s Attorney, Assistant State’s Attorney, the Attorney General, Assistant Attorney General, or a judge, while in the performance of his or her official duties, if not authorized by this Article or proper court order, is a Class 3 felony, and for a second or subsequent offenses, is a Class 2 felony 1 felony.
The wording in this bill is also written in such a way that it could stifle the recent police accountability measures of body cameras. Police may argue that using body cameras to record encounters with citizens outside of “public” places would violate the law, as citizens have not consented to being recorded.
This isn’t the least bit surprising – coming out of Illinois – but it is frustrating, nonetheless. Why would you want to stifle the ability of the people to keep their public servants in check? I’m surprised they didn’t add themselves to the list of protected servants.
