Arabs in Samaria stone defensless Jew


How often do you think a gang of Jews surround an Arab to stone him?

How often do you hear about Jews lynching Arabs, and dancing around with the murdered person's entrails in their bloody hands? Image below from lynching of two Israeli reservists who took a wrong turn at the beginning of the 2nd intifada in 2000.

That's correct: NEVER

Quote of the Day 12/20/2011 from Denninger

...People are tired of being abused by both airlines and the TSA.

You want to grope me (virtually or in real life) to get on board? Go to hell -- I'll drive.

You want me to risk having to play "strip search" (virtual or actual) with TSA employees, and if I've got some sort of medical issue like a colostomy bag or similar have your people treat me like my medical condition is a terrorist threat? Go to hell -- I'll drive.

$50 extra to check a bag (and I can't carry anything on any more, including my damned toothpaste)? It costs me zero extra for as many bags as will fit in the car and I don't have to put up with that crap when it comes to my personal effects either -- I'll drive.

Surly airline personnel, unreasonable change/break fees and similar, never mind charging me $5 for a freaking soda in the airport when, not if, my flight is delayed -- after you refused to let me bring a sealed can of soda through the checkpoint? Go to hell -- I'll drive.

A "person of size" can take half my seat and I have no recourse? Oh, and after the airline does that to me (and they know, obviously, when the large passenger checks in that I'm going to get screwed) and leaves me with no recourse the airlines and airports then strand the plane on the tarmac and treat me like cattle about to be bang-sticked, flensed, grilled and served as Christmas dinner? Go to hell -- I'll drive!

Sick: 17 Day Hawaiian vacation for the Obamas and entourage cost $4 million taxpayer dollars.

We have a monarchical equivalent occupying the White House.  No one is in a position to question his vacation expenditures.  The President is supposed to be a public servant, and yet the Public serves him.

Is this his idea of leadership by personal example? 

Around $4 million (£2.6 million) – the expected total cost to the US taxpayer of the Obama Christmas family vacation to Hawaii according to the Hawaii Reporter (hat tip: Rob Bluey at The Foundry). This is an astonishing amount of public money to be spending in an age of austerity – when the president is supposed to be leading efforts to cut the US budget deficit, the largest since World War Two, and a towering $15 trillion national debt:

Hawaii Reporter research shows the total cost for the President’s visit for taxpayers far exceeded $1.5 million in 2010 – but is even more costly this year because he extended his vacation by three days and the cost for Air Force One travel has jumped since last assessed in 2000. In addition, Hawaii Reporter was able to obtain more specifics about the executive expenditures.

The total cost (based on what is known) for the 17-day vacation roundtrip vacation to Hawaii for the President, his family and staff has climbed to more than $4 million.

This $4 million figure is nearly 100 times the average annual salary of an American worker, which currently stands at $41,673.

Gorging at the public trough much?

By all means, be our guest, help yourself!! Not an imposition at all...

California law allows 12 year olds to consent to vaccines and treatments for sexually transmitted diseases without parental knowledge

AB499, approved by Governor Brown in October 9, 2011:

The state of California has just passed bill AB499, which will permit minor children as young as 12 years old to be vaccinated with sexually transmitted disease vaccines like Gardasil without parental knowledge or parental consent. This means that if you live in California, school or medical personnel would be allowed to vaccinate your child against an STD without your ever knowing it.
At issue, of course, is whether 12-year-olds are mature enough to fully analyze the benefits versus risks of vaccination (or any medical treatment for that matter), or recognize the alternatives to STD prevention, such as abstinence. Meanwhile, a child could suffer a vaccine reaction and the parent, not knowing the child had been vaccinated, could mistake it for the flu or another condition, delaying getting help until it is too late. LINK.

Another perfect argument for States' Rights, minarchism, republicanism (as opposed to pure democracy), and libertarianism:

1. Smaller government = less incentive for lobbying organizations to exist.  Big Pharma wouldn't have this reach.

2. Smaller government = more of a chance for the sovereign people to control their republic and hold their elected representatives to their mandate.  The people should know where their representative lives, so that they can express their pleasure or displeasure with the job performance of the representative.

3. We have a Natural Right to private property, including what we put in our bodies

4. A twelve year old is unable to understand risks, benefits and alternatives: They will do what the person in the uniform tells them to do, unless they have been specifically taught otherwise.

5. States' Rights: If a State is too Progressive or Conservative for the individual, there are 49 other experiments in democracy happening that could be considered as optional places to live: this applies to California here, since this law is state-specific.  Unfortunately, there are very conservative areas of Northern Cali that probably don't cotton to this idea.
Only options: Move to another state, secede, openly defy the law and become a criminal, or submit to the will of the majority.

6. In a republic, despite the will of the majority, certain rights are not to be infringed upon. In a democracy, the will of the 50.1 percent is imposed on the 49.9%.

Light, incredibly accurate bullpup sniper rifle: Desert Tactical Arms SRS

This rifle is amazing, and the shooter in the video below is amazing, IMHO.

A bullpup bolt action rig that you can change out the barrel and action in one minute, with a perfect return to zero. Most snipers and long range shooters out there may be familiar with the Desert Tactical Recon SRS, but in case you've never seen one before, start drooling.

These are 1/2 inch dots, at 100 yards, with the barrel changed in between each shot, in an extreme "return to zero" test. Great shooter using an amazingly engineered rifle.

The bolt cycling looks like it can be awkward, but other than that, this rifle is really cool...

I comes in .308, .338 Lapua, .300 Win Mag, and .243 for the main chassis, and also comes in a "hard target interdiction" chassis chambered in .50 BMG, .416 Barett, .408 and .375 Cheytac.

.308 rig is 11.5 lbs, 33 inches long, and has an effective range of 800 yards. Company website.

Sweet Georgia brown! I gotta get me one of these!  

Actually, I have been lusting after this for about a year and a half, and am saving up...:-)
