In an unusual display of weapons-grade stupidity, the Huffington post published photographs of the tractor-trailers that transport our nuclear weapons from one facility to another. I’m having trouble coming up with civilized words for the depth of these people’s ignorance. I’ll let the article explain itself and see where the comments go.
See the link here: My God, these people want us to be attacked.
(you can see the pics at the linked article. I won’t be responsible for further disseminating this information, as I have an buddy from my days in the service, who drives one of these trucks).
Remember how the MSM and Left mocked the idea of ‘death panels’ put forward by opponents of socialized medicine like Gov. Palin? No? Let me refresh your memory…
Palin doubles down on ‘death panels’
“Former Alaska GOP Gov. Sarah Palin defended her claim that the Democratic health care proposal would create “death panels” in a statement Wednesday night slamming President Barack Obama.
“Yesterday President Obama responded to my statement that Democratic health care proposals would lead to rationed care; that the sick, the elderly and the disabled would suffer the most under such rationing; and that under such a system, these ‘unproductive’ members of society could face the prospect of government bureaucrats determining whether they deserve health care,” Palin wrote in a note on her Facebook page.
“The provision that President Obama refers to is Section 1233 of HR 3200, entitled ‘Advance Care Planning Consultation.’ With all due respect, it’s misleading for the president to describe this section as an entirely voluntary provision that simply increases the information offered to Medicare recipients,” she continued…”
All nonsense right? Just hyperbolic ramblings of another ‘looney toon’ red state right-winger, no? If you were a member of the Jon Stewart watching cognoscenti, you’d have know all along that it’s pure rubbish!!!
Al Qaeda claimed responsibility Sunday for a suicide attack that injured a Saudi prince.
Al-Arabiya, a Saudi-owned television network, said the attacker concealed the explosives in his anus, allowing him to evade detection. The network also quoted an expert as saying that the method of concealment aimed the blast away from the target, while blowing the bomber to bits.
An al Qeada spokesman said that the mujaheddin continue to perfect this technique and more than a hundred volunteers use dummy rounds to take part in enthusiastic practice at least three times a day.
I might have made that last sentence up. Maybe….
I was dropping my youngest son off at school this morning and, as I got out of my pickup, I dropped a dime. I looked down and, God as my witness, it was standing on the sidewalk on its edge. The damned thing bounced and landed on its edge.
When I got into the office I told a couple of people about it and they reminded me of this. Soon, I shall have the power…
While Obamacare has a great many people mad as hell (and rightly so), the next big battle is already being scheduled. The Cap & Tax bill passed in the House has reached the Senate, albeit later than its proponents would like and in the shadow of the Obamacare morass.
The primary sponsors of the next great attempt to steal our money and kill the economy are Barbara Boxer and John Kerry. However, they’ve pushed back the introduction of Senate legislation until sometime late in September. The reasons cited are Kerry’s hip surgery (sorta legitimate), the ashes and sackcloth mourning period over Sen. Ted “drink-n-sink” Kennedy’s death (give me a break), and a desire not to get overshadowed by the healthcare debate (Senators want Prime Time, not second billing).
Actually, what Boxer, Kerry, and Reid really want is more time to try and strongarm reluctant democrat senators into supporting this monstrosity of legislation and what amounts to the biggest tax hike in history. After the August break, during which democrat Senators were watching the fire heaped on their Representative bretheren, they’ll be less than thrilled at what could be a job-killing vote (theirs and ours).
Lets make that an even more unpleasant prospect for them.
