    Obama? I’m wondering how they got anyone in there to start with. It’s the Legion. They are mostly WWII. A walkout would have also been good, but that would not have been reported.

    And in the financial news under insurance, there is an article about insurance companies complaining about insufficient numbers of clients. The insurers are threatening to withdraw from the individual health insurance market. All the while, health care providers are NOT taking ObamaCare insured patients, or are taking just a very limited number. Hey, what do you mean ObamaCare is not insurance? What do you mean no doctor will see me?

    We all know the basic economic premise of ObamaCare is straight out of fantasy land. ObamaCare really does need young and healthy customers, about twice as many of them as subsidized customers or the funding model falls completely apart. However, the young and healthy do NOT buy health insurance because they are young and healthy and do NOT think they need health insurance. And the penalty tax is not enough to be an incentive to do otherwise. ObamaCare, a really bad idea from the beginning.

    The lesson will not be learned until the crash happens. Then those without resources to use for absolute necessities will lose even more than their livelihood. The root cause started with the housing bubble crash, and was exacerbated by government saving the banks with too many toxic assets going down. The government should have done nothing and let the civil bankruptcy process manage the outcome. We would have had a stronger, cleaner economy than we have now. Then the government made it worst by buying bonds from itself monetizing the debt, increasing money supplies far more than what was generated in the economy. When the government can no longer buy their own debt and has to stop, the market will crash, the media will go over the top with all the wrong causes, and all the wrong solutions, and we, the people get wholly screwed, again! Government is never the answer for an economy beyond maintaining national security, and the rule of law.

    The worst of this tragedy is a little girl living with having killed someone. I hope and pray the reality of the experience never sets in on her. Killing a human being is a horrific, gut wrenching, recurring experience. It’s why we have so many soldiers and veterans being treated for PTSD. This girl is just too young to manage the experience, and no amount of counseling is going to change that. I’m sure many of you know what I’m trying to say here, and I’m sorry for you too.

    24 hours is faster than they can do it. The government computer systems are in bad shape and old. The government cannot do business effectively and efficiently. They keep stepping on themselves. I did 30 years of government IT working to get things done inspire of the antiquated hardware and software. I became an industry consultant in legacy software and hardware management and upgrades. The IRS can recover all of those emails in about two day if the media is not corrupted, and if it is it will take several weeks at a recovery site. It’s not people time. It is mostly computer time.

    The woman was just plain lucky she did not get a return punch in the face, or quick kick to the knee. I was assaulted by one huge woman while filling up, after I called her out for “keying” my truck while I went in to pay the bill. She ended up with a torn wrist and dislocated knee, and a trip downtown for felony assault with a deadly weapon because she drew blood when she swung at me with a ball point pen. I am pressing charges, and I have placed a lien on her house early this morning, pending a repaint of the whole side of my truck. If my wife had not stepped in, I would have kept at her until she stopped moving. The guy she was with grabbed my wife, and I kicked him in the face. He dropped like a rock. My wife is not pressing charges. All of that was reflex to being attacked. The video our friend took lasted about 15 seconds total.

    It’s hard to get the scale of the picture, but that looks amazingly like the funnel web spider I accidentally came across in Australia. It was mean, vicious, highly aggressive, and I was lucky to kill it before it bit me. Funnel Web spiders are lethal! The other all time fright of my life was a Brazilian wandering spider attack and that one too was killed, by my hostess that time, before I was bitten. I’ll kill any spider any time and every time I see one. Hate arachnia!

    The police have no obligation to protect your life and property. That is your responsibility. After the police arrive, it becomes their responsibility to manage the remaining situation, and you have to do what the police say. If you allow the government to disarm you, then you are prey for anyone who chooses to strong arm, or otherwise threaten you, take and destroy your property and or life.

    The police were not all that well armed until the bank robbery in L.A. where the robbers were armed with .30 cal autoloading rifles and were wearing body armor, seriously out gunning the police and putting officers in grave danger. And since then the terrorist threat has become a reality here, and terrorists can have stolen, smuggled military weapons. The police need the equipment to respond to these situations. On the other hand, we have way too many instances of an inappropriate response by the government such as Ruby Ridge, Waco Texas, the Cuban refuge child in Florida, and many many more. There are times to to in with maximum fire power, but more where simply knocking on the door would be so much more appropriate. Where to draw the line is the responsibility of the senior officer at the scene, and that is where more training and judgement is needed.

    Overcriminalized.com/ All over again, the government has grown too involved in our lives removing our freedoms, and restricting our options. This is all pointed out so well in this article. As Thomas Jefferson so aptly said “He who governs best , governs least.” That in the final analysis of governance is very true.

    Employers saying there no qualified applicants for jobs are faced four problems. The first is they are having no tolerance for drug use and use random drug tests. There are good reasons to do so as drug users are not dependable, and are not reliable. The second is public education is getting dumber and dumber every year. High school graduates no longer have employable skill sets. The most required skills are reading and comprehending the content, writing a cogent document, and basic Algebra math computation, and in some cases skill with trigonometry, and strong interpersonal skills and communication, written and oral. Practical on the job math is all story problems. Problem solving is one of the rarer skills. Our kids will perform in school to the expectations of their teachers. But the teachers are stepped on for having high expectations by administration dependent on government money and government is setting forth feel good expectations not real expectations. Again government bureaucrats from progressive liberal schools generate the progressive liberal feel good about your self, non-competitive, requirements. Life, on the other hand is all about competition, not feeling good, doing a good job for your employers or customers to keep them happy and hard work done well. . Kids are all about social media , screen toys and screen time, sex, drugs and rock and roll

    ObamaCare is destined for failure from the financial burden it puts on the insured. In 36 states there is no subsidiarity for lower income families that can not afford to pay for food, fuel, rent, and high deductible expensive healthcare insurance with few providers, because it pays doctors below cost of treating patients.

  • [1] August 13, 2014 at 10:54am

    Yeah! A good story about a police officer saving a life.

    The last thing we need is more mysticism in public education science classes. The raw data just does not support the progressive liberal politicians advocacy of human caused climate change. The progressive liberal “What if these global climate changes are human caused?” has gone from question to statement in the progressive liberal media that passes for journalism but is really propaganda.

    Looters are the scum of the Earth. These looters are very fortunate the store owners did not fully protect their property as the store owners in Watts did during that multiple day riot decades ago, with deadly accurate gun fire, so much so the looters could not get out of the area fast enough. Now these store owners, may well do the same thing other business owners have done, which is move the business well out of the neighborhood, and prosecute the looters. They do have pictures.

    Maybe there is a case for the material to be declared child pornography. Porn does distort the adolescent brain and thought patterns much more malevolently than it does the adult mind. Exposure of children and adolescents to porn is to insure a life of failure unless the exposure is cutoff and prevented for the future of the child or adolescent. And public school progressive liberals are notably malevolent when the subject is cultural. There are moral guidelines found in religion that work well for social culture when followed by the largest majority, and children and adolescents do well overall when taught these value systems as the right and proper way to live.

    The federal government pays the ACLU to sue them and others over contrived compromised civil liberties. And by doing so the federal government has paid the ACLU to drive all religion with the one exception of Islam out of government in public life. The lack of a guiding moral force in public life has led to demonic decisions by public officials where the progressive liberals rule through local regimes. And thus pornography in the public schools. The only families not exposed to this malevolent rule are those that home school, monitor and restrict their children’s access to media, and never allow their children to go to shopping malls, or other adolescent unsupervised hangouts, or movie theaters. The vast majority of home school families have religious centered lives, and graduate exceptionally well educated children that capture the highly coveted full ride college scholarships. Home school is the bane of progressive liberal regimes, and public education, because it shows up public school for the inferior education it is, and public education does not get federal dollars for students not in their schools. Progressive liberalism cannot survive a well educated, knowledgeable public citizenry for its total lack of rational thought and action.

    Not only diverse, but they are the nicest, friendliest people you could ever hope to meet.

    While you can shoot a pistol with a one handed sideways grip, most of the time you will endanger everything down range but the target. It’s a really bad idea. A Weaver Stance is the most stable free standing way to shoot a pistol. It takes practice and a coach to really get it right.
