As Nigel Farage points out, the EU has as just as many criminally liable hypocrits as we do here in the good ole USA.
Not R. Budd Dwyer bad, but for you who are feint-hearted, best to give this one a pass.
The gunman was a poor shot. If you go to that CNN link, view the third one down below the fold at ~1:30 in a woman comes and belts him with her purse Ruth Buzzi style.
So it’s starting to smell a bit like desperation out there. Petty crime is actually up in my safe neighborhood. The rule of law only applies down here on Main Street apparently and a lot of people are waking up to that fact, are pissed off and getting pissier.
In brief: The native are getting restless.
If Eric ‘Place’ Holder would get up off his goddamn chair and start going after some real crims, maybe the people wouldn’t feel so much like they’ve been hung out to dry.
Another celebutard bites the dust, apparently from Rx-drug overdose.
I haven’t written anything before on this topic, as I generally focus on issues like the economy, governmental excess, climate lies, misuse of resources… you know, important but boring stuff that TV nooze never mentions, and the other realms of the MSM intentionally mis-ledes. I’ll leave the deadheads to them, as they have so much time available to gorge the public with such nonsense.
Just like easy credit dooms susceptible borrowers, easy access to drugs dooms susceptible people.
So I hope that my new catchphrase, uhm, catches on…

Say ‘yes’ to our drugs
The President will announce next Tuesday that he’ll send -probably- between 30,000 to 40,000 extra troops to Afghanistan, at $1 million per soldier. What he should also elaborate on, and what was told the media in preparation for the speech, is that the White House has now pushed the decision to be out of Afghanistan to 2017. In other words, beyond “Obama time”, even if he were to seek and get a second term.
Maybe that’s the line of thinking on the economy as well, to leave the hard decisions for the next guy. It would fit the pattern Obama has set until now. He hasn’t stood up to anyone really so far. He’s watched from the sidelines on his own watch as the rich got richer and the poor got more destitute. He’s chosen the easy way out. When it comes to Wall Street and the economy, I find it hard to name even one single thing that Obama has done that Bush 43 wouldn’t have done exactly the same. And that is a disconcerting realization, even after a whole year of same old same old.
Moreover, if that’s the idea, to avoid the hard decisions, it wouldn’t work anyway. The US will be called to -financial- order even long before Obama’s first term is done. But then there’s of course always the possibility lingering in the background that it’s not a matter of not making the hard decisions now. Maybe those decisions were made long ago, by the people who paid to get Obama where he is today. I have no doubt we’ll know by Thanksgiving next year.
FDR recognized how much certain special interests hated him, and famously proclaimed he welcomed their antagonism. Obama is no FDR.

I know, I know, people die all the time. But these fall under ‘suspicious.’
None died of defenestration, AFAIK.
Only believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear.
