THE daughter of hate cleric Omar Bakri Mohammed is a POLE DANCER, The Sun can reveal.

Busty Yasmin Fostok, 27, leads a secret life after rebelling against her fanatical Muslim dad — who rants against Western “depravity”.  She has performed in London pole dancing bars and gyrated half-naked in cages at club nights.

Simple Simon met a pie man going to the fair.
Said Simple Simon to the pie man,
‘What have you there?’
Said the pie man unto Simon,
‘Pies, you dumb ass.’

Fourth Amendment? What Fourth Amendment?

September 29, 2008

From Mount Vernon New York:

Mount Vernon to set up up gun checkpoints

MOUNT VERNON – Police will begin staging gun checkpoints at the city’s borders tonight as a way to curb violence in the city, officials said yesterday.  Teams of mobile police units will set up checkpoints at various city borders in areas where police have dealt with incidents involving guns and violence, Mayor Clinton Young and Police Commissioner David Chong said yesterday.

They are going to do this on public streets.  Stop cars and try to determine if the occupants have guns.  They started this shit with “DUI Checkpoints,” and now they have moved on to guns.  How long before they just declare a “crime checkpoint” and stop everyone to determine if they are breaking any law at all, felony or misdemeanor?  How long before you hear Papers Please!” in your home town?

“I am very seriously concerned about the gun violence here in Mount Vernon,” said Young as he announced the police action. “I am not satisfied with what has been happening so far this year.”

Translation: It is too hard and demanding to actually do our jobs and reduce crime by making arrests and taking gang-bangers off the streets, so I’m going the easy route.  I’m going to ignore that pesky old Constitution and Bill of Rights…after all it is a “living, breathing” document isn’t it?  Subject to “interpretation,” right? 

Young said the gun checkpoint program is a “bold move” aimed at curbing violence.

You wouldn’t know a bold move if it puked on you.  This is a lazy bureaucrat’s way of trying to impress the public with “action” and to divert attention from the fact that he cannot get the job done.

…officers will stop cars and talk to drivers about antiviolence, the Mount Vernon and county gun programs and even ask if people are carrying illegal firearms, Chong said. He added that the checkpoints will be similar to DWI checkpoints.

What if I don’t want to talk about “antiviolence,” whatever that is – is that like “antimatter?”  What if I don’t want to be lectured on the “Mount Vernon and county gun programs?”  What if I only want to peaceably go about my legal, private business?

What part of this “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated,” is so hard for these people to understand?  If you don’t have probable cause, or even reasonable suspicion, which leads to probable cause YOU HAVE NO AUTHORITY TO DETAIN SOMEONE.  PERIOD.

And the money quote: We are not going to violate anyone’s civil rights, but there has to be a very strong and clear message. Law-abiding citizens have nothing to fear,” Young said.  Ahhhh – there it is!  I was waiting for it!  The old “If you’re not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to hide/fear, right?  Right?”

Speechless…I’m speechless over that one.  I honestly don’t know if it is (a) denial, or (b) willful ignorance, that someone who is charged with knowing THE LAW would proudly state they are planning to violate citizens’ civil rights in one breath and then deny doing it with the next?

It is like that Monty Python skit where the Black Knight is laying on the ground after having his arms and legs hacked off and says “I’m not hurt!  Its only a flesh wound!”

Tell you what…I hope they try to pull this shit in my neck of the woods…I will round up every person I know who has a concealed carry license and caravan right to their “checkpoint.”  I’ll have every gun I own in the trunk with matching receipts in my hand.  They can check serial numbers until the cows come home.  Wonder how many cars they’ll get through their “checkpoint” that night?

From The In-Box

Dear Civilians, We know that the current state of affairs in our great
nation has many civilians up in arms and excited to join the military.
For those of you who can’t join, you can still lend a hand.  Here are a
few of the areas where we would like your assistance:

1. The next time you see any adults talking (or wearing a hat) during
the playing of the National Anthem – kick their ass.

2. When you witness, firsthand, someone burning the American Flag in
protest – kick their ass.

3. Regardless of the rank they held while they served, pay the highest
amount of respect to all veterans.  If you see anyone doing otherwise,
quietly pull them aside and explain how these veterans fought for the
very freedom they bask in every second.  Enlighten them on the many
sacrifices these veterans made to make this Nation great.  Then hold
them down while a disabled veteran kicks their ass.

4. If you were never in the military, DO NOT pretend that you
were.  Wearing battle dress uniforms (BDUs) or Jungle Fatigues, telling
others that you used to be ‘Special Forces,’ and collecting GI Joe
memorabilia, might have been okay when you were seven years old.  Now,
it will only make you look stupid and get your ass kicked.

5. Next time you come across an Air Force member, do not ask them, ‘Do
you fly a jet?’  Not everyone in the Air Force is a pilot.  Such
ignorance deserves an ass-kicking (children are exempt).

6. If you witness someone calling the US Coast Guard ‘non-military’ ,
inform them of their mistake – and kick their ass.

7. Next time Old Glory (the US flag) prances by during a parade, get on
your damn feet and pay homage to her by placing your hand over your
heart.  Quietly thank the military member or veteran lucky enough to be
carrying her – of course, failure to do either of those could earn you a
severe ass-kicking.

8. Don’t try to discuss politics with a military member or a veteran.  We
are Americans, and we all bleed the same, r egardless of our party
affiliation.  Our Chain of Command is to include our Commander-In- Chief
(CinC).  The President (for those who didn’t know) is our CinC
regardless of political party.  We have no inside track on what happens
inside those big important buildings where all those representatives
meet  All we know is that when those civilian representatives screw up
the situation, they call upon the military to go straighten it out.  If
you keep asking us the same stupid questions repeatedly, you will get
your ass kicked!

9. ‘Your mama wears combat boots’ never made sense to me – stop saying
it!  If she did, she would most likely be a vet and therefore could kick
your ass!

10. bin Laden and the Taliban are not Communists, so stop saying ‘Let’s
go kill those Commies!’   And stop asking us where he is!   Crystal
balls are not standard issue in the military.  That reminds me- if you
see anyone calling those damn psychic phone numbers, let me know, so I
can go kick their ass!

11. ‘Flyboy’ (Air Force), ‘Jarhead’ (Marines), ‘Grunt’ (Army), ‘Squid’
(Navy), ‘Puddle Ju mpers’ (Coast Guard), etc., are terms of endearment we
use describing each other.  Unless you are a service member or vet, you
have not earned the right to use them.  Using them could get your ass
kicked.

12. Last, but not least, whether or not you become a member of the
military, support our troops and their families.  Every Thanksgiving and
religious holiday that you enjoy with family and friends, please
remember that there are literally thousands of soldiers, sailors,
marines and airmen far from home wishing they could be with their
families.  Thank God for our military and the sacrifices they make every
day.  Without them, our country would get it’s ass kicked.’

Obama Campaign Threaten Legal Action Over NRA Ads

Thursday, September 25, 2008

Fairfax, VA-Sen. Barack Obama’s presidential campaign has sent threatening letters to news agencies in Pennsylvania and Ohio to stop airing ads exposing his anti-gun record sponsored by the National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF).

The Obama campaign sent cease and desist letters to news outlets in Pennsylvania and Ohio, denouncing the ads and demanding their removal from the airwaves. All stations where NRA-PVF has purchased or plans to purchase ads have been provided with documented evidence of Sen. Obama’s anti-gun record.

Here’s the video…You decide.   

As policitcal ads go, it doesn’t look that terrible to me.  Then again, I’m not the one who made the “bitter” and “clingy” comment.

So, I ask again, what’s he afraid of?

Oh…Maybe he’s afraid of this.

Or this.

Or that.

Or this.

Or that.

Or this.

Or that.

Or this.

Or that.

Or this.

Or that.

Or this.

Or that.

Or This (watch ’til the end)…

From JR at A Keyboard and a .45:

Ed Freeman

You’re an 18 or 19 year old kid. You’re critically wounded, and dying in the jungle in the Ia Drang Valley, 11-14-1965. LZ Xray , Vietnam . Your Infantry Unit is outnumbered 8 – 1, and the enemy fire is so intense, from 100 or 200 yards away, that your own Infantry Commander has ordered the MediVac helicopters to stop coming in.

You’re lying there, listening to the enemy machine guns, and you know you’re not getting out. Your family is 1/2 way around the world, 12,000 miles away, and you’ll never see them again. As the world starts to fade in and o u t, you know this is the day.

Then, over the machine gun noise, you faintly hear that sound of a helicopter, and you look up to see a Huey, but it doesn’t seem real, because no Medi-Vac markings are on it.  Ed Freeman is coming for you. He’s not Medi-Vac, so it’s not his job, but he’s flying his Huey down into the machine gun fire, after the Medi-Vacs were ordered not to come.

He’s coming anyway.

And he drops it in, and sits there in the machine gun fire, as they load 2 or 3 of you on board.
Then he flies you up and out through the gunfire, to the Doctors and Nurses.
And, he kept coming back…… 13 more times….. and took about 30 of you and your buddies out, who would never have gotten out.

Medal of Honor Recipient Ed Freeman died last Wednesday at the age of 80, in Boise , ID ……May God rest his soul…..

Rest well Captain.

Freeman flew wingman for Major Bruce Crandall who also received the Medal of Honor for the same missions. He is also honored in the film We Were Soldiers.

HOUSE OF CARDS

LIBERALS FUELED WALL ST. WOES

By STAN LIEBOWITZ

HOW did America wind up in its worst financial crisis in decades? Sen. Barack Obama explained it this way last week: “When sub-prime-mortgage lending took a reckless and unsustainable turn, a patchwork of regulators systematically and deliberately eliminated the regulations protecting the American people.”

That’s exactly backward. Mortgage lending took that “reckless and unsustainable turn” because of regulation – regulation driven by liberals and progressives, not free-market “deregulators.”

The mortgage market was humming along just fine when, in the late 1980s, progressives decided that it needed to be “fixed.” Their complaint: Some ethnic groups got approved for mortgages at lower rates than others.

In reality, mortgage lenders were simply being prudent – taking care to provide mortgages to those who could best afford to make the payments.

The shift began in 1989, when Congress amended the Home Mortgage Disclosure Act to force banks to collect racial data on mortgage applicants. By 1991, critics were using that data to paint lenders as racist by showing that minority applicants were approved at far lower rates. Banks were “Shamed By Publicity,” as one 1993 New York Times headline put it.

In fact, they found a racial disparity only by ignoring relevant data on applicants’ ability to make mortgage payments – such as their assets and credit history.

Remember those FACTS when the next friggin’ legislator gets on TV and talks about the “greed of bankers” and “predatory lending.”  Remember those FACTS when someone says that the free market doesn’t work and the government needs to regulate, well…anything.  Remember the congress-coined term “Redlining” and the congress-initiated “Community Reinvestment Act” when anyone tries to tell you that this mess is due to deregulation.  Bullshit!  The government regulated us right into this frackin’ mess!

The underwriting disciplines that mortgage lenders had voluntarily put in place in the 1980s and 1990s were there for a reason.  They worked.  They weeded out those people who were not good credit risks.  When the congress forced lenders – under the threat and force of law – to lower their standards, what did they think was going to happen? 

The mortgage lenders didn’t turn stupid overnight with the advent of this idiotic regulation.  They simply decided they didn’t want to carry the credit risk of these loans.  So, we had lenders out there writing loans for anyone who could fog a mirror (because they had to), then turning around and bundling and selling those mortgages, thereby relieving themselves of the credit risk.  The mortgage buyer took the risk.  The “market” took the risk.  Ultimately, you and I took the risk.

Only it gets worse than that.  Because now the (democratic) congress is adding consumer debt to this wealth redistribution bailout scheme, including auto loan debt and student loans (WTF???).  We now have the American Dream paid for by wealth transfer.  Go to college for free, buy a house and a car you can’t afford, and live the American Dream!  You don’t need to pay for them!  Someone else will!

Here’s a clue Joe and Jane Sixpack: If you can’t afford the payments, don’t buy the house, the car, the 60″ plasma TV or the boat. 

Do I think there were unscrupulous lenders out there preying on the uneducated and illiterate?  Of course there were.  There always are and always will be, no matter how much regulation congress decrees.  But they weren’t the majority, and they weren’t the root cause of this shit.

Here’s another clue: Credit is not a civil right!Go out and build your credit score over time the way the rest of us adults did.  Grow up a little bit and realize that you don’t need it all right now and can’t afford it all right now.  And don’t look to the rest of us to bail you out when you make the wrong decisions.  We made the right decisions.  We bought the house we could afford, not the one that gave us status.  We bought the used car, we didn’t lease the luxury car.  We put money in our savings accounts (no matter how little) each payday, we didn’t rack up the limits on 5 credit cards.

Jesus Christ on a moped, its like talking to a bunch of little kids!  Life is about choices.  You can choose to do whatever you want, you just have to be prepared to live with the consequences.  Only not in this case, I guess.  Dumbasses.
