Knock, Knock, WHO's THERE...ATF...WTF?

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is taking a rare step of allowing public comments prior to issuing a decision on a study that could result in outlawing certain types of shotguns currently available to citizens.

The ATF completed a study regarding the importability of certain shotguns. The basis for a possible ban is based on a loosely defined “Sporting Purpose” test. Using the vague definition almost all pump-action and semi-automatic shotguns could be banned as they are all capable of accepting a magazine, box or tube capable of holding more than 5 rounds. Other characteristics determined to be “military” by the ATF can also be used as a basis for a ban.

Ironically, many shotguns with “military” features are currently being used in shooting competitions held by the USPSA, IDPA and IPSC. The rules could also result in obscure regulations where an individual would be unsure if he is violating them or not.

Dudley Brown, Executive Director of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, said if the ATF succeeds with the banning of tactical shotguns it “will be the most dangerous interpretation of the 1968 Gun Control Act ever envisioned and will outlaw thousands of perfectly legitimate home defense shotguns.”

The ATF is currently allowing public comments on the study until the end of the month. Those wishing to express concerns about the study can send an email to

Hey folks...I am giving you fair warning out there. I would be a little leery of visiting this ATF site and leaving any personal info with them. You just may be the target of the next "random" search for weapons stashes nationwide.

I'm just sayin'...Be careful out there...And I want one of these!!

SHHHHH...Don't Tell Anyone

Pardon me if I do not cite resources for this particular tech, for my time on the net is very limited today. With that out of the way, let's journey to the implications of this new technology.

Scientists have pinpointed a frequency that when pointed at a person makes them unable to speak. Thought still goes through, as are all actions, save for speech.

What does this mean for society?

First of all, libraries will be splaying this frequency throughout their halls, to make sure no disruptions happen. This is both good and bad. I can't recall how many times I've been pulled out of a fantastical story by some bugger shouting at their significant other about some insignificant thing. A bad part about any whole building with this tech deployed is that if there ever was a true emergency, no one would be able to shout for help. Guess we'll all have to wear whistles when we go to check out books.

There are many uses outside of buildings for this silencing tech, but many of them are very nefarious. Constables and officers of the law will be able to utilize this at their own discretion. If a police person happens upon a demonstration that they may not agree with, they can silence a whole crowd from expressing their viewpoints and exercising their rights to freedom of speech.

Many people I know would love to use this device on me because I say many things that others do not wish to hear. I pull no punches with anyone when it comes to ideas, conceptualizations, and observations of truth. The truth hurts, but not if no one is around to hear it. Well now, they can stop me. I'll be quiet now, but this may be the last time I do so willingly.

Blogger Patterico Is Swatted -- July 1, 2011

From Patterico

You’re about to listen to one of the most bone-chilling pieces of audio you will ever hear. At least, it was to me when I first heard it.

It’s a phone call that could have gotten me killed.

In this post you will hear that audio clip. You will also read about a months-long campaign of harassment carried out by at least three individuals: Ron Brynaert, Neal Rauhauser, and Brett Kimberlin — much of it directed at critics of Brett Kimberlin.

This harassment includes repeated references to critics’ family members, workplace complaints, publication of personal information such as home addresses and pictures of residences, bogus allegations of criminal activity, whisper campaigns, frivolous legal actions, and frivolous State Bar complaints.

And finally, you will hear a comparison of one of those men’s voices to that of the man who made the call that sent police to my home. And you’ll read a declaration from a forensic audio expert comparing those two voices.


In the last radio interview Andrew Breitbart ever gave, on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show, Breitbart talked about a new ruthless tactic used by thugs against political opponents:
[O]ne of the things they’ve done to people who have worked with me in the past, including an L.A. prosecutor, is to “SWAT.” That means that they’re spoofing phones, pretending to be somebody else’s phone, calling 911, and saying “I killed somebody” and then the person’s home is met with the guns drawn, the SWAT and the helicopters, in a horrifying act. It’s happened twice: once in New Jersey, once in Los Angeles, with an L.A. County . . . prosecutor who [is] associated with me.”
I am that L.A. County prosecutor. And in this post, you’ll hear the hoax call that sent police to my house, pointing loaded guns at me.


At 12:35 a.m. on July 1, 2011, sheriff’s deputies pounded on my front door and rang my doorbell. They shouted for me to open the door and come out with my hands up.

When I opened the door, deputies pointed guns at me and ordered me to put my hands in the air. I had a cell phone in my hand. Fortunately, they did not mistake it for a gun.

They ordered me to turn around and put my hands behind my back. They handcuffed me. They shouted questions at me: IS THERE ANYONE ELSE IN THE HOUSE? and WHERE ARE THEY? and ARE THEY ALIVE?

I told them: Yes, my wife and my children are in the house. They’re upstairs in their bedrooms, sleeping. Of course they’re alive.

Deputies led me down the street to a patrol car parked about 2-3 houses away. At least one neighbor was watching out of her window as I was placed, handcuffed, in the back of the patrol car. I saw numerous patrol cars on my quiet street. There was a police helicopter flying overhead, shining a spotlight down on us as I walked towards the patrol car. Several neighbors later told us the helicopter woke them up. I saw a fire engine and an ambulance. A neighbor later told me they had a HazMat vehicle out on the street as well.

Meanwhile, police rushed into my home. They woke up my wife, led her downstairs and to the front porch, frisked her, and asked her where the children were. Then police ordered her to stand on the front porch with her hands against the wall while they entered my children’s bedrooms to make sure they were alive.

The call that sent deputies to my home was a hoax. Someone had pretended to be me. They called the police to say I had shot my wife. The sheriff’s deputies who arrived at my front door believed they were about to confront an armed man who had just shot his wife. I don’t blame the police for any of their actions. But I blame the person who made the call.

Because I could have been killed.

The weirdest part of the whole thing was that I halfway expected this might happen. Because I was not the first one it had happened to.

I think it’s about time you heard the call that sent police to my home.

Obama's Death Czar

Corporate news blackout as Obama designates John Brennan as the sole person in charge of designating people to be assassinated.

Alexander Higgins

John Brennan, Obama’s chief counterterrorism advisor was a name that you did not see on the Mainstream media today as they continue to run stories that serve to distract the masses from stories that matter.
Most recently he publicly spoke about the drone program calling it moral and ethical and just.

According to reports from the Associated Press, John Brennan has now seized the lead in choosing who will be targeted for drone attacks and raids and Obama has delegated him the sole authority to designate people for assassination under the United States top-secret assassination program.

Yes, if it such a secret program then why is the Associated Press running a story on it? Because it is only a “top-secret” matter of National Insecurity when the public and organizations such as the ACLU request more details on it than the propagandized reports the public is fed through the corporate media.

While this story deserves to have been put before the eyeballs of every U.S. citizens, it was merely a side note ran by the Associate Press that didn’t make corporate news headlines anywhere.

According to the AP, under the new plan, Brennan’s staff compiles the potential target list and runs the names past agencies such as the State Department at a weekly White House meeting.

At the same time ACLU lawsuits and requests for information about the decision-making process behind the government’s assassination program repeatedly get denied with the government claiming the programs are so top secret that they can neither confirm nor deny the programs even exist.

US Attorney General Eric Holder recently reiterated the administration’s support for their controversial program of secretly targeting US citizens for execution without notifying them of the accusations against them, officially charging them with a crime or offering them the opportunity to respond. Since the whole world is a battlefield in the vague ‘war on terror,’ the only due-process afforded to someone who has been targeted for extrajudicial execution is a secret ‘review’ by the executive branch.

Just as the public demanded the release of the Bush Administration’s Torture Memos to expose the ludicrous rationale behind their secret torture program, we too must demand to know the legal rationale for a program that allows our president to unilaterally choose to deprive someone of life and liberty - without even being told they are charged with a crime.

Holder’s speech was a cheap attempt to feign transparency without actually releasing the legal memos that define the administration’s execution policy. We need your help to demand the Obama administration release the legal memos that purport to justify this unprecedented assassination program.

Sign the petition demanding the Obama Administration release the Execution Memos.
President Obama and Attorney General Holder:

Americans deserve the right to know the full, legal basis for a program to secretly target U.S. citizens for execution without notifying them, charging them with a crime or giving them the opportunity to respond. This information must be made available so there can be an open, public debate.
We, the undersigned, demand the release of any and all legal memos pertaining to this program to secretly target and execute American citizens immediately.

Death of Freedom by a Thousand Slices

Posted on by creeping

The title of this post is a modification of a previous post “They Thought They Were Free” – a reference to Milton Mayer’s book about the Germans in the 1930′s and 40′s. Do read it as it now applies to us.
In just the last few weeks American politicians have thrown any semblance of liberty to the trash bin. 2012 could go down in history as the year the U.S. transitioned into a full blown fascist state. And sadly the November election is a lose-lose situation in terms of liberty with established choices that will only hasten its demise or simply slow it down temporarily.
It’s truly extraordinary that the Land of the Free has deteriorated to the point that the government must now resort to threats, coercion, and intimidation in order to keep its most productive citizens inside.
What Constitution? We the People are allowing this to happen.

Regularly scheduled programming will resume shortly.

Academia Gone Wild

Who's hot for teacher? Looks like the other teacher.

Two female Romance language instructors were tossed out of their Brooklyn high school after being caught "undressed" in an empty classroom, sources told the Daily News Tuesday.

Students at James Madison High School in Midwood were watching a talent show in the auditorium while Alini Brito and Cindy Mauro were speaking the international language of love, sources said.

A janitor stumbled on French teacher Mauro, 33, and Brito, 29, a married Spanish instructor, and tattled to school officials on Nov. 20.

Both tenured teachers were removed from the classroom and sent to Education Department "rubber rooms" while they're investigated for misconduct, sources said.

The episode is the talk of the school. Students even set up a Facebook group to discuss the shenanigans - and it already has more than 500 fans.

"Now you guys wished we installed cameras in our classrooms after all hmm?" wrote one student...(snip)

Students told the Daily News that gossip about the incident was flying around school at a high level, but that other teachers were attempting to put a lid on it.
"The teachers don't even want you to bring it up because they say they'll get in trouble if we're talking about it in class," student Eddie Ramirez said.
"They just say, 'Let it go.'"

FBI agents returned to an elementary school in Brooklyn on Wednesday in an ongoing inquiry into a teacher’s aide who arrested this week on child molestation charges, reports the New York Times. Agents were searching for more victims, according to the Times.

Taleek Brooks, 40, was out on bail after a January arrest for possession of child pornography.

He was arrested again on Monday and charged with producing child porn after agents found videos on his home computer of him engaging students in sexual acts in what appears to be Public School 243, or P.S. 243.

Parents and city education officials met at P.S. 243, in Crown Heights, on Wednesday; parents were sent home with a letter informing them of the aide’s arrest and a number for the FBI.

(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - A Brooklyn teacher was arrested Tuesday night on charges she raped a sixth grader and gave him drugs and alcohol.

According to the New York Daily News, Claudia Tillery, 42, was a humanities teacher at the middle school the boy attended. Police sources reportedly told the paper that Tillery and the boy, who is now 14, had been having a sexual relationship since 2009.

The sources said the boy had recently ended the relationship and decided to come forward.

BROOKLYN — A gym teacher at a Prospect Heights high school was arrested Tuesday on sex assault charges, police said.

Esran Boothe, 49, who works at the Brooklyn Academy of Science and the Environment (BASE) on Classon Avenue, was charged with forcible touching and third-degree sexual abuse, the NYPD said.

Information about the victim and the circumstances surrounding the alleged abuse were not immediately clear.

Students at the school had mixed reactions about the arrest.

"He's kind of creepy," said Xzavier Loucks, 16, a sophomore, who claimed to have Boothe as a teacher. "He acts weird every now and then."

As you may have guessed, this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what amounts to Leftist sanctioned abuse in our public schools. There are many more examples just in Brooklyn alone. In most cases it appears that the teachers' unions are not only caught covering up the evidence, but are complicit in the crime to one extent or another.

Former teachers union president Randi Weingarten went to bat for her successor Sunday after a lawsuit charged that when he was a teacher, he had sex on school premises with a guidance counselor.

The suit claims that the United Federation of Teachers made labor concessions to the city to cover up the incident involving Michael Mulgrew, now UFT boss.

“We live in a country where people are allowed to file crazy lawsuits,” Weingarten, now head of the American Federation of Teachers, said in a statement. “I've read through the allegations, and while they could be part of some fictional novel, they are utterly baseless in fact.”

In his suit, Andrew Ostrowsky, a math teacher at Frank Sinatra High School of the Arts in Queens, claims that Mulgrew got caught in flagrante with Emelina Camacho-Mendez in a wood-shop classroom at Brooklyn’s William E. Grady High School...(snip)

The lawsuit alleges that the city used the incident to blackmail the union into making labor concessions. Mulgrew worked part-time for the union in 2004-05.

I suppose this should not be suprising when you consider the dumbing down of our teachers, their students, and even our own representatives on THE HILL.

Members of Congress aren’t sounding any smarter. In fact, the 112th Congress speaks collectively at a 10th grade level, down from that of a high school junior in 2005, according to a Sunlight Foundation study released this week...More at Talking Points Memo

Finally here is the finest example of pure academic ignorance that I have seen in some time. I am sure you have heard this clip of a teacher threatening a student with slander for criticizing Duh Won...However, I am posting it here for posterity. History and those who teach it seems to change every day depending on what is deemed politically correct.

More here frrom the parents of the student involved...

We must hold our teachers and their union bosses accountable for the outrages and abuses that we see in our public schools on a daily basis!

Obama: Who's Your Daddy?

1001 Reasons To Vote Against Barack Obama...Part I

  1. The man started his presidency off with a bang by botching his oath of office.
  2. For good measure, he set the tone for it by blaming Chief Justice John Roberts for the error.
  3. Obama promises on the campaign trail to immediately shut down Guantanamo Bay. The detention facility is open three years later and counting.
  4. In the same breath, he promises to restore habeus corpus. Three years into his term, he signs the National Defense Authorization Act, which leaves open the possibility of indefinite detention of American citizens.
  5. President Obama ordered the assassination of an American citizen.
  6. As Senator, Obama spoke out against but voted for the Patriot Act.
  7. As President, he extended it, with an auto-pen, while he was in France.
  8. Obama continues the “Bush practice” of extraordinary rendition.
  9. As a candidate, Obama promises to end the War in Iraq and bring all troops home within 16 months. He even says in 2007 that it would be the first thing he would do in office, and that “you can take that to the bank.” As president, he announces all troops would be withdrawn by the end of 2011 (34 months later).
  10. Obama states the Afghan War would conclude in June 2011, but projections now have us running into 2014.
  11. As Senator, Obama opposes the surge in Iraq. He claims that increasing troop levels by 20,000 would actually increase sectarian violence.
  12. When pulling troops out of Iraq, Obama tries to claim success for ending the war, without giving credit to Bush or the troops for any “victory.” The Bush surge was what turned the tide in the war.
  13. Sectarian violence is up sharply since Obama pulled troops out of Iraq in December 2011.
  14. President Obama refuses to say “victory” is necessarily the goal in Afghanistan. Obama reasons the U.S. should not project the image of Emperor Hirohito being forced to sign a treaty of surrender before Macarthur to end the war against Japan.
  15. Emperor Hirohito did not sign the treaty of surrender ending the war against Japan. It was his foreign minister Shigemitsu.
  16. Obama plans to ease travel restrictions to communist Cuba in 2009. And in 2011.
  17. The president pledges a “new beginning” with the Cuban dictatorial regime.
  18. A glance at a Cuban-U.S. relations timeline running to December 2011 shows nothing changed.
  19. President Obama greets Venezuela’s socialist dictator Hugo Chavez warmly at the Summit of the Americas.
  20. Earlier that month, Chavez calls Obama an “ignoramus.”
  21. At the same summit, President Obama sits patiently through a 50 minute diatribe against the United States delivered by socialist strongman Daniel Ortega, only scribbling notes instead of walking out with his diplomatic team.
  22. President Obama meets a grinning Daniel Ortega at the same summit.
  23. When asked later by Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper what he thought of the anti-American tirade, President Obama replies, “It was 50 minutes long. That’s what I thought.”
  24. The attempted subversion of the rule of law in Honduras by the socialist president Zelaya, which would have unconstitutionally put him on the ballot for a third term, prompts his judicial removal from office. Obama condemns the supposed “coup” as “not legal.”
  25. President Obama directs his Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to cut off $30 million in aid to Honduras.

News From Ohio--Center of the Known Universe

  Yes folks, my swing state of Ohio is once more taking center stage nationwide as the election season heats up and the chattering class descends on my little ville in da hills, Steubenville, Ohio. 

Obama opened his "official" campaign not far from here and Mitt Romney was right behind him in visiting our beloved valley.

Now it seems we are to be graced by the presence of true genius as the VP comes in person to deliver his own delusional, seemingly insane brand of rhetoric. I really think Joey Biden suffered an internal breakdown of sorts yesterday.

I must urge you, however, to not be discouraged by the first half of this post. Please read on as there are always good things happening here in "Da Ville"!

#MadeInOhio tour: Soft-serve for everyone...

Vice President Joe Biden went for a doubleheader of a foodie adventure on Wednesday evening while campaigning in Ohio. After a day of stumping in the Buckeye State for his #MadeInOhio tour--and verbally pummeling Mitt Romney--the Veep had dinner in Steubenville.  

He visited the Naples Spaghetti House at 329 North Street--a popular stop for politicians to dine--joined by a local family, the Staffilinos. After, Biden indulged his sweet tooth with a stop at a near-by Dairy Queen, where he enjoyed a chocolate-dipped vanilla cone. The Veep treated the mob in the Dairy Queen to cones, too. (Above: The VP hands out vanilla cones)

Obama Foodorama

While campaigning in Ohio last night, Joe Biden stopped at the Naples Spaghetti House where he crossed paths with a Romney campaign spokesman, Ryan Williams, who questioned him about his policies on coal. Mr. Williams discussed his run-in with Mr. Biden with The Politicker.

“I was sitting at a table next to him. One of his staffers seemed to inform the Vice President that I was a spokesperson for the Romney campaign,” Mr. Williams said. “The Vice President mentioned me by name, asked me to come over. I walked over, I shook his hand, he introduced me to his dinner companions, asked me to sit down. I didn’t sit down. … I asked him, I said, you know, Mr. Vice President, it’s interesting that you’re here in coal country today given your staunch opposition to coal. Do you disagree with that?”

Mr. Williams specifically questioned Mr. Biden about a 2007 statement he made claiming coal pollution was more dangerous to Americans than terrorism.

“That’s a fairly irresponsible comment,” said Mr. Williams. “I asked him about that and he seemed to not want to answer the question, so I went back to my table, and sat down and enjoyed my chicken parmesan.”

Following their encounter, Mr. Williams said Mr. Biden left his table and decamped to an adjoining dining room.

“He got up and moved. He was about three feet from me and, after our interaction, he moved into another part of the rest to finish his meal,” said Mr. Williams. “I didn’t go back and approach him after our interaction, we had already interacted and, as my mother taught me, you should never interrupt people during dinner.”
Mr. Williams apparently enjoyed his meal at the Spaghetti House.

“It was delicious. I would recommend that anybody traveling through Steubenville, Ohio should stop by the Naples Spaghetti House and order the chicken parmesan,” said Mr. Williams.

On the upside of the local is the latest story from my hometown Fransiscan University where I have spent some time tutoring and just discussing the moral, ethical, and ideological issues of the day with many of the students there.

Fransiscan University is claiming that Obamacare has forced the school to end its student heath insurance program. The massive health care overhaul, the university says, has led to cost increases that no longer make offering the program a viable possibility.

The Catholic university in Ohio said Tuesday it is being forced to end a student health insurance program over the Obama administration's contraception mandate and costs associated with other provisions of the health care overhaul.

Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio, said it has so far excluded contraceptive services and products from its health insurance policy for students and will not participate in a plan that “requires us to violate the consistent teachings of the Catholic Church on the sacredness of human life.”

Please read the following excerpts from the statements and sermons given concerning this important issue. These are men of extreme courage and faith. They deserve to be recognized and applauded for taking this stand against what amounts to nothing less than tyranny and oppression.

From The Herald Star

The Reverend Terrence Henry, TOR, said Friday morning he was prepared to not comply with a new federal mandate requiring employers to provide birth control measures as part of employee health care coverage.

"We will not comply with this new law and will face whatever we have to face. We will cross that bridge when we come to it. But we are drawing a line in the sand that we will not cross. And if we are forced into a compromise there would be no sense for Franciscan University to exist," Terry said.

"First Amendment rights have always had a preferred position in the law. We cannot compromise with the mandate issued by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. It is a violation of our deepest held beliefs. If we are coerced by the federal government on this issue, then we could be coerced to violate other beliefs. We are facing signs of totalitarianism," Henry continued.

"As Martin Luther King once said, 'An unjust law is out of harmony with the will of God.' This is an unjust mandate. This is not just a Catholic issue. It is an issue for all people. It attacks our basic religious freedom. Some say we should lobby for an amendment. But that would be acknowledging the federal government has the power to decide our religious freedoms. This is a do or die issue for Americans," said Henry.

"The Catholic Church has always been strongest when she is being persecuted. We must remain strong during this attack on the First Amendment and our religious freedom," said Henry.

"We can't compromise on life issues. It is important to know this is not affecting just our religion. It harms all religions in our country where religious freedom is guaranteed by our Constitution," Henry said.

"The so-called 'religious exemption' will likely not protect hundreds of Catholic colleges, schools and organizations, including Catholic hospitals, nursing homes, and social service agencies which serve people regardless of religious affiliation," Henry wrote in the latest edition of the campus newspaper.

Fred Brower, president and chief executive officer of Trinity Health System, said the health care mandate "was problematic for us as a Catholic education."

"We are affiliated with the ministries of Sylvanian Franciscan Health and the health care ministry of the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania. The statement by the Obama administration appears to recognize our concerns. And we have seen a statement issued by the president of the Catholic Health Association indicating issues of concern to the organization have been fixed," said Brower.

Monsignor Kurt Kemo, administrator of the Catholic Diocese of Steubenville, said the Catholic Church is under attack because "Catholic employers, will be forced to offer their employees health coverage that includes sterilization, abortion-inducing drugs and contraception"

Kemo told parishioners on Sunday, "The administration has cast aside the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, denying to Catholics our nation's first and most fundamental freedom, that of religious liberty. And as a result, unless the rule is overturned, we Catholics must be prepared either to violate our consciences, or to drop health coverage for our employees. The administration's sole concession was to give our institutions one year to comply.

"We cannot, we will not comply with this unjust law. People of faith cannot be made second class citizens. We are already joined by our brothers and sisters of all faiths and many others of good will in this important effort to regain our religious freedom. Our parents and grandparents did not come to these shores to help build America's cities and towns, its infrastructure and institutions, its enterprise and culture, only to have their posterity stripped of their God-given rights," Kemo stated in a letter read at parishes in the 13-county diocese.

"As a community of faith we must commit ourselves to prayer and fasting that wisdom and justice may prevail, and religious liberty may be restored. Without God, we can do nothing; with God, nothing is impossible. I would also recommend visiting to learn more about this severe assault on religious liberty, and how to contact Congress in support of legislation that would reverse the administration's decision," Kemo wrote in his letter to parishioners throughout the diocese.

Bishop Michael J. Bransfield of the Wheeling-Charleston Catholic Diocese issued a statement in early February asking for prayers that wisdom and justice may prevail.

"This ruling confirmed that virtually all private health plans, including those of Catholic hospitals, charities and schools, will be required to include coverage for sterilizations and contraceptives, including abortion-inducing drugs, and almost all individuals will be forced to buy that coverage as a part of their policies," Bransfield said.

"Even those who are not in agreement with the Catholic Church's teaching on the sanctity of human life recognize that this is a radical break with the tradition of religious liberty and respect for conscience rights," Bransfield added.

I Want My Government House NOW

The Bloodsucker Economy

By Art Hyland

Pictured nearby is a single family house for sale. Although squeezed into a narrow, level lot, nevertheless, its “sustainable design and construction will save thousands in utility costs every year.” It better, because the going market price of this beauty–while it lasts–is over $1,500,000. And it’s only ten short miles from where you work. (that’s miles not minutes however)

Who are you? You are a well-paid employee, among hundreds of thousands who live all around you, who are included in the newly designated HUD category called Bloodsucker. You live and work in Washington D.C., the only area of this nation where the Great Recession has somehow not been heard from.

The United States experienced a real estate bubble burst in 2008, and it hasn’t recovered nor are there signs of recovery in any major metropolitan area of the nation EXCEPT ONE: Washington D.C and surrounding counties. See for yourself what goes for $1,549,000.

The house pictured here has a single garage, perhaps to house your latest hybrid or electric Government Motors or equivalent car, although it doesn’t say it’s been prewired to charge such a vehicle, so you may have to spend an additional $4,500 for that desirable option.

You might wonder why only a single-car garage, but that’s easily explained: the local bureaucratic land use regulators (who are related in spirit to the federal Bloodsucker regulators) are following the federal Agenda 21 guidelines that call for citizens to opt for public transportation rather than the old-school, carbon-based concept of multiple automobiles for dwelling occupants that is now so pre-Obama.

This design is smart, it’s chic, it’s sustainable. And all of those qualities are affordable because this is Washington D.C. where “Total compensation for federal workers, including health care and other benefits, last year [2010] averaged $126,369, compared with $122,697 in 2009, according to Bloomberg News calculations of Commerce Department data in this October 2011 article.

So, houses that cost $1.5 million are not uncommon because with 10-20% down (no problem) and your fellow bureaucrats at Fannie Mae/Federal Reserve creating unlimited money with interest rates at 3%, your monthly payment is just $5000/mo. When you average $122,000 per year, guess what?

You qualify because your monthly income is roughly twice the house payment! Life is good. And, the source of all this income is an entity that can’t go out of business! You are set for life, with a wonderful pension guaranteed as well. Plus, remember, you’ll save thousands each year on energy with this house. There’s just no end to the good news. You can afford a trip to the Bahamas but you’ll opt for a freebie when you attend the latest seminar on affordable housing in Nassau, where you can rub shoulders with the little people who re-fill your Margaritas.

Now, just to be clear: I am not exhibiting class envy here. I like our citizens to make all the money they can. Everyone should be able to succeed, to strive for that “pursuit of happiness” enshrined in our Declaration of Independence and guaranteed with a later one called the Constitution. But these historic goals have become foreign to the DC bureaucratic masses who live in and can afford to buy houses like the example above, because their livelihoods are based upon subverting everything that was enshrined in those old dead white man concepts.

No, I’m not envious of their good fortune, I’m livid. These Bloodsuckers are living the life of Riley while the nation is drifting into financial oblivion. Oh, there are some regular citizens like those in Silicon Valley doing well, and God bless them. I love it. But they aren’t spending my money, so they can, and some do, make billions. Don’t care. Would that we all could do that. But Bloodsuckers, no, they need to be made to pound sand.

This is what November is all about. Taking the power, money and smirk away from Bloodsuckers of any and all government stripes, starting with the Chicago community organizer in chief, the one who just recently came out of the closet (it is rumored), and who we now know personally shot Osama bin Laden while inking the health care law for everyone in order to balance the federal budget as promised only three years ago (but instead added $5 Trillion to the deficit). Yes, that Bloodsucker, along with all his czars, appointees, fellow liberals, communists, socialists and mainstream media enablers.

It’s quite likely the above house may be in foreclosure next summer. Perhaps a future owner, unlike the bureaucrat before him, can garage his Mustang convertible while building an addition to house his SUVs, while working at a bench in the corner of that garage on the successor to the iPad, a small device that will project by hologram a virtual computer. One that will give him news of $1.35 gasoline wars.

More "Progressive" Bigotry

These remarks by the unpopular Governor Beverly Purdue are reminiscent of those made by Arlen Specter concerning his former constituents. When the will of the people is upheld through a lawful vote, they must be thrown down and under the bus!


Greenville, NC (WITN) -- North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue says Tuesday's passage of Amendment One makes the state look like Mississippi. Perdue made the remarks in response to a question from WITN's Brittany Gunter while in Greenville Friday morning...Video Here

On Tuesday, 61% of the state's voters approved the constitutional amendment which bans same sex marriages. State law already prohibits gay marriages.

The governor, a Democrat who said leading up to the vote that she was against the amendment, told WITN that the result is wrong for the state.

"People around the country are watching us, and they're really confused to have been such a progressive forward thinking economically driven state that invested in education and that stood up for the civil rights people including the civil rights marches back in the 50s and 60s and 70s," said Perdue. "People are saying what in the world is going on with North Carolina, we look like Mississippi."

Perdue, who lives in New Bern, decided earlier this year not to seek a second term.
Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant says he is disappointed by Perdue's remarks. "Certainly, the comments from the North Carolina governor were very disappointing," said Bryant. "To be able to use Mississippi in a disparaging way on a popular vote in her own state is, I think, something that's certainly petty and something I think she will reflect on and hopefully apologize for those types of remarks."

The Republican governor says he has met Perdue and says he plans to write her about the remarks.

What follows here are two more examples of what I consider to be blatant "Progressive Bigotry". I could display many more examples, but I am sure that you see these hypocritical abuses every day as well.

In stark contrast to prior Obama administration statements, Illinois Democratic Rep. Luis Gutierrez told The Daily Caller that he and the National Council of La Raza were deeply involved in the crafting and implementation of a controversial Obama administration memo that many conservatives believe amounts to a policy of amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.

President Obama, Gutierrez said, told him in December 2010 that comprehensive immigration reform could not be achieved legislatively because of fears Democrats would lose future elections. Instead, he said, the president suggested exploring administrative options to accomplish their mutual goals. (RELATED: White House loosens border rules for 2012)

The memo, written by Immigration and Customs Enforcement Director John Morton in June 2011, established priorities for tracking and removing suspected illegal aliens. It directed his agency to focus only on illegal immigrants who pose a threat to national security and endanger public safety.

ICE, Morton wrote, would provide no resources to tracking other illegal immigrants now and in the future — extending them a sort of administrative amnesty, and removing all threat of deportation, unless they committed a serious crime.

We should all remember who "La Raza" really is...and what they stand their own words...

"In the spirit of a new people that is conscious not only of its proud historical heritage but also of the brutal gringo invasion of our territories, we, the Chicano inhabitants and civilizers of the northern land of Aztlan from whence came our forefathers, reclaiming the land of their birth and consecrating the determination of our people of the sun, declare that the call of our blood is our power, our responsibility, and our inevitable destiny. ... Aztlan belongs to those who plant the seeds, water the fields, and gather the crops and not to the foreign Europeans. ... We are a bronze people with a bronze culture. Before the world, before all of North America, before all our brothers in the bronze continent, we are a nation, we are a union of free pueblos, we are Aztlan. For La Raza todo. Fuera de La Raza nada."

That closing two-sentence motto is chilling to everyone who values equal rights for all. It says: "For The Race everything. Outside The Race, nothing."

Here is one more story of global Leftist bigotry which will curl your hair...

Here is an idea. Let's give Native Americans the land the U.N building is setting on.

Daily Mail:

A UN human rights official is urging the U.S. to turn over control of lands considered to be sacred to Native Americans, including the site of the Mount Rushmore National Memorial.

James Anaya, the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, unveiled his recommendations in Geneva on Friday after completing a 12-day visit to the U.S. where he met with representatives of indigenous peoples in six states.

The fact-finder also had a chance to meet members of the Obama administration and briefed the U.S. Senate Committee on Indian Affairs, but no member of Congress agreed to meet with him. 'I have heard stories that make evident the profound hurt that indigenous peoples continue to feel because of the history of oppression they have faced,' Mr Anaya said in a statement.

I must close with the most disgusting example of this bigotry which I discovered just today...My eyes are bleeding so I must take a break after this one...

 "You old white people. It is your duty to die."
Augustin Cebada, Brown Berets; "Go back to Boston ! Go back to Plymouth Rock, Pilgrims! Get out! We are the future. You are old and tired. Go on. We have beaten you. Leave like beaten rats. You old white people. It is your duty to die. Through our love of having children, we are going to take over.

Richard Alatorre,
Los Angeles
City Council. "They're afraid we're going to take over the governmental institutions and other institutions. They're right. We will take them over . . . We are here to stay."

Excelsior, the national newspaper of
Mexico , "The American Southwest seems to be slowly returning to the jurisdiction of Mexico
without firing a single shot."

Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez,
University of Texas ; "We have an aging white America
. They are not making babies. They are dying. We are having babies. The explosion is in our population . . . I love it. They are shitting in their pants with fear. I love it."

Art Torres, Chairman of the California Democratic Party, "Remember 187--proposition to deny taxpayer funds for services to non-citizens--was the last gasp of white
America in California

Gloria Molina, Los Angeles County Supervisor, "We are politicizing every single one of these new citizens that are becoming citizens of this country ..... I gotta tell you that a lot of people are saying, "I'm going to go out there and vote because I want to pay them back."

Mario Obledo, California Coalition of Hispanic Organizations and California State Secretary of Health, Education and Welfare under Governor Jerry Brown, also awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Bill Clinton, "
is going to be a Hispanic state. Anyone who doesn't like it should leave."

Jose Pescador Osuna, Mexican Consul General, "We are practicing 'La Reconquista' in California ..."

Professor Fernando Guerra, Loyola Marymount University; "We need to avoid a white backlash by using codes understood by Latinos . . . "

When I was young, I remember hearing about the immigrants that came through Ellis Island .. They wanted to learn English. They wanted to breathe free. They wanted to become Americans. Now too many immigrants come here with demands. They demand to be taught in their own language. They demand special privileges--affirmative action. They demand ethnic studies that glorify their culture.

Send copies of this letter to at least two other people, 100 would be even better. Help us get the word out.

Remember when you vote next year that we need someone in the White House who will balance the budget and control illegal immigration. If we make all illegals, legal, then we have lost our country forever. Liberalism will have won and you will have a one party system forever. Redistribution of wealth will be the law. It is called socialism. Our country is heading in the wrong direction and we are doing it to ourselves without serious protest.
