Well, the weekend is almost over…

But there is still time for some wacky, wild, Waffle House girl-on-girl sexual harassment. It is every bit as tantalizingly erotic as you would expect a case of Louisiana Waffle House employee-on-employee unwanted groping would be.

The first incident occurred on March 6, 2010, when Pulsifer allegedly ran her hand between the victim’s legs and caressed the woman’s genitals while she was bending down to pick up some change that had fallen on the floor of the restaurant, at 418 N. Causeway, Gulino said. The victim “expressed her displeasure” at the contact but was ignored, he said.

Over the next several days, Pulsifer continued to make sexual remarks aimed at the alleged victim, Gulino said. Four days after the initial incident, Pulisfer allegedly reached into the woman’s bra and fondled her breast in front of a witness, he said. The woman again told Pulsifer to stop, he said.

Smokin!

“Why do you have a right to your money?”

Some thoughts from those wiser than myself:

“No power on earth has a right to take our property from us without our consent.”
~John Locke

“The reason why men enter into society is the preservation of their property.”
~John Jay

“Just as man can’t exist without his body, so no rights can exist without the right to translate one’s rights into reality, to think, to work and keep the results, which means: the right of property.”
~Ayn Rand

“The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the laws of God, and there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence”
~John Adams

“If history could teach us anything, it would be that private property is inextricably linked with civilization.”
~Ludwig von Mises

“Property is surely a right of mankind as real as liberty.”
~John Adams

“Among the natural rights of the colonists are these: First a right to life, secondly to liberty, and thirdly to property; together with the right to defend them in the best manner they can”
~ Samuel Adams

“Every Man has a Property in his own Person. This No Body has any Right to but himself. The Labour of his Body, and the Work of his Hands, we may say, are properly his. Whatsoever then he removes out of the State that Nature hath provided, and left it in, he hath mixed his Labour with, and joyned to it something that is his own, and thereby makes it his Property…”
~John Locke

“Thieves respect property. They merely wish the property to become their property that they may more perfectly respect it.” ~GK Chesterton

The other side?

“The theory of Communism may be summed up in one sentence: Abolish all private property”
~Karl Marx

Elections have consequences: Michigan jumps into the fray!

It’s about f-ing time…

Michigan has become one of the latest states to debate whether to require law enforcement officers to check the immigration status of people they approach for an offense and whom they suspect may be here illegally.

A proposed bill in the House known as No. 4305 also would require government agencies to verify the immigration status of people older than 18 years of age who apply for federal, state or local public benefits.

This Week in Public Education: 10 yr old humiliated in mock slave auction

It’s not enough to describe the horrors of slavery to the children. They are required by the State of Ohio to experience them as well? Why don’t we give one kid a whip and throw some cotton balls on the ground?

I’m all for making history more interactive, if it furthers a child’s interest in the subject, but this seems a bit far.

Next week: The Salem Witch Trials

Nikko Burton said during an American history lesson at Gahanna’s Chapelfield Elementary School, the class was divided into slaves and masters, 10 Investigates’ Paul Aker reported.

“I ended up being a slave,” said Burton, 10. “At first I didn’t care, but after people were bidding on people it kind of made me a little mad and stuff.”

Burton said that the students who were playing the part of master were told to feel the students playing slaves to see if they were worth buying.

“The masters go to touch people and do all sorts of stuff,” Burton said. “They got to look in your mouth and feel your legs and stuff and see if you’re strong and stuff.”

Burton’s mother said that her son was humiliated.

She complained to Gahanna-Jefferson schools. School officials declined to comment but did issue a statement that said, in part, “As soon as the concern was brought to our attention, school officials acted promptly to speak with the parent.”

“He felt degraded, he was hurt and the kids picked on him later,” Aneka Burton said. “I feel like that was totally inappropriate; it was racist and it was degrading.”

A district spokeswoman said the slave auction was part of state required curriculum and that it was a one-time lesson.

WSJ: ‘Why America Will Stay on Top’

Yesterday’s Wall Street Journal carried an interview with British historian Paul Johnson. He has written an historical book about the twentieth century. It’s called, ‘Modern Times’.

In his book he writes about the rise of US budget deficits during the early 1960’s under President Kennedy. He calls this aberration ‘America’s suicide attempt’.

But his most interesting observations about our country have to do with our strengths and our ability to change course before it’s too late.

Pessimists, he points out, have been predicting America’s decline “since the 18th century.” But whenever things are looking bad, America “suddenly produces these wonderful things—like the tea party movement.

“And I like that lady—Sarah Palin. She’s great. I like the cut of her jib.”

The former governor of Alaska, he says, “is in the good tradition of America, which this awful political correctness business goes against.” Plus: “She’s got courage. That’s very important in politics. You can have all the right ideas and the ability to express them. But if you haven’t got guts, if you haven’t got courage the way Margaret Thatcher had courage—and [Ronald] Reagan, come to think of it. Your last president had courage too—if you haven’t got courage, all the other virtues are no good at all. It’s the central virtue.”

I think he’s got something there. The things Revoistas seem to value most, in Palin, Christie, and Allen West, for instance, is their guts. It’s their ability to resist the pressures from the weak ones and from the sellers of political correctness and carry on with what they believe to be right.

Down the Memory Hole: Hortonville, Wisconsin

Wisconsin teachers are an angry bunch and this latest uprising isn’t the first in the state. In 1974, teachers belonging to the Hortonville Wisconsin Education Association went on strike against the Hortonville School District and created a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States.

Teachers and the school board had been negotiating teachers’ salaries in early 1974 and had reached a tentative agreement. The teachers, in an attempt to speed up what they saw as a slow bargaining process, stipulated that no contract for the 1974 school year would be signed unless negotiations were undertaken and completed on the next year’s contract as well.

The board rejected this position and on the morning of March 18, 1974, all 88 teachers of the district walked out and went on strike. This was a direct violation of Wisconsin State Statutes that prohibited strikes by public employees, including teachers. School bus drivers were ordered to return students to their homes. Teachers picketed the schools, the board chambers and the homes and businesses of the board members.

Nearly 4,000 Christians attack Muslim homes, torch mosque

I’m sorry, that headline doesn’t even make sense. It should have read, “Nearly 4,000 Muslims attack Christian homes, torch church.” That’s better.

Wow, if my orginal headline got out, the Running Dog Media would have gone into their blaring, blasting 24 hour crisis news cycle. Now that I have corrected it, they can do as they usually do: ignore it.

This is what the revolution in Egypt is starting to look like.

Copts in Egypt are begging for Egyptian Armed Forces protection today after a Muslim mob of several thousand attacked their church in the village of Soul, about 30 kilometers from Cairo, last night. The Church of St. Mina and St. George was torched, and its clergy are unaccounted for. The fire department and security forces failed to respond to Coptic pleas for help during the arson attack.

According to a report from the Washington-based Coptic American Friendship Association, the mob, chanting “Allahu Akbar,” pulled down the church’s cross and detonated a handful of gas cylinders inside the structure. The ensuing fire destroyed the church and all its contents, including the sacred relics of centuries-old saints. It is reported that a romantic relationship between a Christian man and a Muslim woman, which sharia forbids, and the refusal of the woman’s father to kill her to restore the community’s “honor,” aroused the Muslim ire. An account of this incident is here. (I also received a message from a Coptic friend that this week members of the Muslim Brotherhood, shouting “Allahu Akbar,” stormed a Christian school on Thabit Street in downtown Asyut and attempted to take it over. Egyptian security forces, including an army unit, intervened and routed out the Brotherhood members. The school had been built by Presbyterian missionaries in the early 1900s, and is now directed by Presbyterian Pastor Naji. Christian leaders from this southern area expressed a deepening sense of insecurity as the Muslim Brotherhood emerges from the underground.)

It’s the Zombie Pockylips!

Well, for ants anyway. The infecting agent is a voodoo fungus.

Once it infects an ant, the fungus uses as-yet-unidentified chemicals to control the ant’s behavior, Hughes told LiveScience. It directs the ant to leave its colony (a very un-ant-like thing to do) and bite down on the underside of a leaf — the ant’s soon-to-be resting place. Once it is killed by the fungus, the ant remains anchored in place, thanks to its death grip on the leaf.

Ultimately, the fungus produces a long stalk that protrudes from the ant’s head, shooting spores out in the hopes of infecting other ants. Two of the four newly discovered species also sprouted smaller stalks elsewhere, including from the victim’s feet and lower leg joints – the equivalent of knees.

Left to die

In Nevada, a man fell down a mineshaft and rescue is not being attempted.

Rescuers have called off attempts to save a man who fell into an abandoned mine shaft, despite video footage showing he was still breathing.
The 28-year-old man fell 190ft into part of Murphy’s Mine Complex in Jersey Valley, Nevada, on Wednesday.

But the shaft was so unstable that parts of the walls were crumbling and rocks were hitting rescuers on the head, forcing teams to postpone the operation.

A video camera determined the man was still breathing yesterday, but there was no movement. A priest had been called to give the last rites.

JoLynn Worley, a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, said: ‘The mine is so unstable that walls were crumbling and rocks were hitting rescuers on the head when they tried to reach him.

On one hand, a dead rescuer is not a rescuer. On the other, a man is dying alone while people watch and wait.

What is the right answer Revoistas?

Oil Chain Letter Economics

I got an email chain letter saying if we all joined together to not buy gas from Exxon Mobil, prices would drop.   I responded by private email that the author did not understand economics and got this:

“Lets see economics Supply in storage at $50 >$75 a barrel. Demand at $3.50 a gallon ? How about GREED.”

Here is my response:
Let’s say you bought a barrel of oil at $78, and oil prices suddenly rose to $102 because of Middle East supply uncertainty.
What would be your selling price?  Are you “greedy?”

Let’s say you bought your house for $250k, and today your realtor says it’s now worth $325k.
What would be your selling price?  Are you “greedy?”

Exxon Mobil owes you nothing.
Just like you don’t owe anyone the charity of a below market price on your house.

Let’s say Government interferes with the oil marketplace and imposes a 75% “windfall profits” tax on oil revenues. Let’s also say Exxon, Chevron, Conoco Phillips, Murphy, Varco, all had planned to build oil storage facilities so they could store oil bought at low prices, and sell during times of high price demand.  If their profit incentive is taken away, they will not invest in the storage facilities or store oil.

There would be no oil reserves during supply uncertainty, and there would be even higher oil prices and shortages.

Workers of the world unite!

Whenever the rights of workers have been threatened, the people of the State of Connecticut have rallied bravely. Today a new crisis has arisen and these New England guardians of decency and justice have sprung into action and delivered a crushing blow to the oppressors in the town council. Crisis has been, for now, averted.

A Connecticut town must provide their union workers free coffee and milk, according to a ruling from the State Board of Labor Relations.

The board also ordered town leaders to reinstate “Dress Down Fridays” for the union clerical and custodial workers.

The dispute involved the town of Orange and the local chapter of the United Public Service Employees Union.

The board determined the town retaliated against the union members for comments they made at a finance meeting in 2009.

The day after that meeting, First Selectman James Zeloi eliminated the free coffee and milk and the following day ended “Dress Down Friday.” Zeoli told The New Haven Register that he pulled the plug on the coffee to save money and stopped casual Fridays because some employees were abusing the privilege.

Clearly the battle has just begun. It is impossible not to note the lack of availability of free donuts. I ask you and God Almighty Himself, can there be justice for workers in a workplace without free donuts? No I say! Rally brothers and sisters! Prepare the barricades!

Gasoline prices are necessarily skyrocketing

On Wednesday, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour said the Obama administration in favor of a run-up in gas prices in order to induce consumers to buy more fuel-efficient cars.

The White House, of course, denies it.

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney refuted Barbour’s claims, saying the Obama administration is aware of the gas prices and Barbour’s comments are political posturing.

“This President, this administration, is keenly aware of the impact of high gasoline prices on average Americans, especially in a still recovering economy,” Carney said at a Mar. 2 press briefing. “And we are monitoring gas prices, and we are also, as you have seen over the past two-plus years, very focused on the need precisely to develop other energy sources so that we are not as dependent on foreign oil as we have been in the past.

“So beyond that, I would just say that those comments were clearly made in the context of 2012 presidential politics…”

We seem to have a disagreement here. So, would Obama ever promote a policy in which energy prices would skyrocket? Down the memory hole we go to

Well hell, why not count it three times?

Remember when they used to say that Obamacare was going to save money? Yeah, that was the audacity of hope or something. One little accounting trick they used to make that fiction seem to be true was to double count savings. It was always bullshit but today Kathleen Sebelius came clean and admitted it was bullshit.

In her first appearance before the House Energy and Commerce Health Subcommittee since the health-care law passed, Kathleen Sebelius responded to a line of questioning by Republican Rep. John Shimkus of Illinois about whether $500 billion in Medicare cuts were used to sustain the program or pay for the law.

“There is an issue here on the budget because your own actuary has said you can’t double-count,” said Shimkus. “You can’t count — they’re attacking Medicare on the CR when their bill, your law, cut $500 billion from Medicare.”

He continued: “Then you’re also using the same $500 billion to what? Say your funding health care. Your own actuary says you can’t do both. […] What’s the $500 billion in cuts for? Preserving Medicare or funding the health-care law?

Sebelius’ reply? “Both.”

This is clearly an example of the “New Math” of the Obama Administration’s Department of Education.

Understanding the difference between public and private sector unions

I am going to attempt to explain to you in the simplest terms possible the critical difference between private sector unions and public sector unions. Ready? Here we go.


Private Sector Unions

Player #1: Company Owner
Player #2: Labor Union


This bag of money represents the revenue of the company. The owners of the company and the labor union negotiate over their respective shares this bag of money. The more the union gets, the less the owners get. The more the owners get, the less the union gets.


Public Sector Unions

Player #1: Tax Payers
Player #2: Elected Officials
Player #3: Labor Union


This bag of money represents tax payer income and savings. The elected officials and labor unions negotiate how much of the bag of money they will confiscate from tax payers. The more money that is taken, the more the union gets. The more money the union gets, the more money elected officials receive in campaign donations from the union.


Now, which situation has a greater moral hazard?

More great news from the Sunshine State

This has been by far the most absurd scenario I’ve seen in this State in a long time. Wow, maybe it hasn’t actually been too terribly long. For some reason Charlie Crist seems to be distant history to me now.

Our new Governor has refused to be part of the destruction our State and Nation are going through right now by refusing to accept stolen property from the Federal Government in order to engage in high speed rail construction between Tampa and Orlando, Florida. It only takes an hour and a half to actually drive between those two cities and if you drive you will retain personal transportation upon arrival. The project makes no sense.

When the Governor refused to accept stolen counterfeit money to build the project, a Republican and a Democrat stepped forward to sue him in Court in order to use force to attempt him to accept said tainted funding for the project.

Never bring a beanbag to a gun fight

Kinder and gentler border patrols…

Border Patrol agents shot beanbags at a group of suspected bandits before the men returned fire during a confrontation in a remote canyon, killing agent Brian Terry with a single gunshot, records show.

And an illegal immigrant wounded in the gunbattle who is now the only person in custody linked to the slaying contends he never fired a shot, according to FBI search warrant requests filed in the U.S. District Court in Tucson.

The documents provide the most detailed version yet of what happened in the deadly gunbattle Dec. 14 in Peck Canyon, northwest of Nogales.

The documents say the group of illegal border entrants refused commands to drop their weapons after agents confronted them at about 11:15 p.m. Two agents fired beanbags at the migrants, who responded with gunfire. Two agents returned fire, one with a long gun and one with a pistol, but Terry was mortally wounded in the gunfight.

Whether tis nobler in the mind…..

……….to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune, at taxpayer or corporate expense, or be stoned to death for winking at a man in the bazaar, while wearing a f-king shower curtain imposed upon you by sexually-adolescent rat-bastards who choose to live in the 7th century. Just another example of moral equivalence from the left.

These people are sick. I got nothing else. Just sick.
