Today in history

Comments I’ve posted

  1. Re: Desensitized Lovemaking

    @T3hZ10n@xanga – I’ve been in the friends-with-benefits situation before. I fail to see how it was “detrimental to everyone on a global scale.” If that indeed was or is the case, then the world is way more fragile than I ever dreamed possible – so much so that it makes the hoplophobes and global-warming cultists look positively sane.

  2. Re: Gun Porn

    Just remember that if you’re buying new or across state lines, the ONLY part of an AR-15 or M-4 type of rifle that you need to get through an FFL dealer is the lower receiver, as that’s the only part that’s tracked by any kind of serial number. The upper receiver (as long as the barrel is at least 16″ long) and stock you can order to be delivered mail-order straight to your door, with the only paperwork being the sales slip.

  3. Re: Getting Personal – Oral Sex & Other Thoughts

    I’ve been there before (Not getting off from a blow-job) but never thought of it as any sort of problem.

  4. Re: my kid’s speech

    @bonmots – If you’re “not looking for a debate,” then why did you leave it open for comments when it’s just a simple thing to uncheck the box marked “Enable comments and feedback” ?

    Oh, that’s right, I forgot – my function in the “debate” as an “assault weapon” owner is to shut up and do as I’m told by the “liberals,” in this case to surrender liberty and property on demand, with NO enforceable guarantees that such a ban will actually save lives as promised, or even anything along the lines of “we won’t take everything from you eventually.”

  5. Re: Drone Attacks Planned on US Citizens

    OK – I skimmed through all 16 pages of the leaked memo and didn’t see the word “drone” ONCE.

    What it really says is summed up in the title – “Lawfulness of a Lethal Operation Directed Against a U.S. Citizen who is a Senior Operational Leader of Al Qa’ida or An Associated Force” – in other words, “If we say you’re with Al-Qa’ida, we can kill you at our discretion.” Of course, the burden of proof won’t be on Obama, Holder, Hagel, Napolitano and Kerry – it will be upon the target or the target’s survivors.

    I advise saving the leaked memo, warts and all, to your thumb drives, then reposting it “early and often,” as they say in Chicago.

  6. Re: Beyonce’s Super Bowl Adventure

    The highlight of the game was Jones’ 109-yard run for a touchdown.

    I recommend Beyonce’s “performance” as a cure for insomnia. The power outage was a drag, as well.

    Anyone recall this book. For educational purposes only.

    http://media.portland.indymedia.org/media/2008/10/380523.pdf

    I not only recall it, but have a print copy that I bought at a gun show back before “9-11.” (After “9-11,” the local gun show organizers wussed out and kicked out the dealers selling those kinds of books.)

    Glad to be of help!

    I also recommend typing the various FM numbers that you’re looking for into Google – it’s relatively easy to get current versions.

    In essence, what the memo says is this: “If we think you’re with Al-Qa’ida, we reserve the right to kill you at our discretion.”

    Of course, the burden of proof will be upon the target(s) or the target’s survivors to prove innocence, NEVER on Obama, Biden, Holder, Kerry, Napolitano or Hagel to prove guilt.

    I skimmed through the full 16 pages, didn’t see the word “drone” once, but plenty of court case cites. And LOVED the way NBC News liberally applied their logo “watermarking” across the text.

    You know, you don’t have to give the default “2 eprops” when posting a comment to a blog that you disagree with.

  12. Re: Drone Attacks Planned on US Citizens

    @Ambrosius_Augustus_Rex – You misunderstand flapper’s mentality by assuming that she’s making the slightest attempt to analyze the issues rationally using any sort of principles when she’s more like the drunken sports fans that you see on the boob tube. If this memo had been released by a President McCain or a President Romney, she would be outraged by it – “How dare they . . . !!!” and such. But because it’s Obama promulgating this sort of policy, well, that’s OK, “it’s the economy, stupid,” “we need more green energy.”

    It’s as if WWE stage ethics were applied to politics – when Mr. A fights dirty and pulls brass knuckles out of his trunks, that’s bad, and the fans boo him. But when Mr. B uses the same sort of tactics, grabs a chair, whatever, well, that’s OK, because he’s the good guy we’re supposed to cheer for this week.

  13. Re: Drone Attacks Planned on US Citizens

    @Ambrosius_Augustus_Rex – Thank you! Actually, I came to that conclusion while dealing with some of the local Romney-roids (think hemorrhoids, minus the rationality or principles) who behaved in exactly the same sort of way, only on behalf of Slick Willard Romney instead of Obama.

  14. Posted to Facebook

    Actually, Chip, the leaked “white paper” (a summary of the still-confidential official “Obama Doctrine” on this issue) makes quite a few references to Al-Qa’ida —

    http://msnbcmedia.msn.com/i/msnbc/sections/news/020413_DOJ_White_Paper.pdf

    But you’re right in that this policy WILL be cited as precedent for using against others who aren’t affiliated with Al-Qa’ida at all, maybe even totally opposed to Islamo-fascism (Pamela Geller, et al) – “We did this to Al-Qa’ida, so now we can do this to _(insert name here)_.”

  15. Re: Drone Attacks Planned on US Citizens

    @Ambrosius_Augustus_Rex – I find it endlessly amusing that Republicans let the same lamestream snoozemedia that falls all over itself to slobber Obama’s knob run their candidate selection process. Between that and the Priebus gang running the RNC on behalf of Romney, how else could Romney have won?

    As for the UK, the rot started internally before the Muslims started moving there in droves, just as the Roman fall began before the Vandals, Visigoths and Huns showed up at the Empire’s borders.

  16. Posted to Facebook

    It took me about 25 minutes to find the actual posting (http://freedominourtime.blogspot.com/2012/02/pseudo-courage-of-chris-kyle.html February 5, 2013 at 1:52 PM).

    Stuff like this is why I prefer to disable anonymous posting on blogs that I run. If they want to post such comments, they should at least have to go to the trouble of creating a false profile.

  17. Re: Four Worst Ideas I’ve Ever Had.

    I take the Fifth.

  18. Re: [No subject]

    OK – I skimmed through all 16 pages of the leaked memo and didn’t see the word “drone” ONCE.

    What it really says is summed up in the title – “Lawfulness of a Lethal Operation Directed Against a U.S. Citizen who is a Senior Operational Leader of Al Qa’ida or An Associated Force” – in other words, “If we say you’re with Al-Qa’ida, we can kill you at our discretion.” Of course, the burden of proof won’t be on Obama, Holder, Hagel, Napolitano and Kerry – it will be upon the target or the target’s survivors.

    The error on this poster is that McCarthy isn’t a Senator, but the Congresscritter from New York’s 4th District. Aside from that, good show!
