    You start with Holder. Once he’s gone, you work on the people he wouldn’t have prosecuted. You get every last one of them until the rat nest is empty of rats.

    Why doesn’t the Post just give it four Obamas and be done with it?

    It’s really tough to lose a parent. You lose a connection to your past and it makes you realize that all life is fleeting and the time you have in this life to make a difference is passing by. Your father lived a good life and lasted long enough to see his son become a success and positively affect the lives of millions of people. I think any father would say that is a job well done. Hang in there and remember you’re not alone in this world. We’re with you.

    The Iranians load up the nuke, the plane flies over New York city and detonates, Obama has his “Reichstag fire” moment, declares “marshal law for the length of the emergency, and that is the ballgame. Goodnight liberty and freedom.

    A riot is an ugly thing.
    And I think it’s just about time that we had one!

    I’m thinking Spetznaz.

    I think it would be more like Russian tanks in Hungary or Russian tanks in Afghanistan or Russian tanks in the Ukraine or Russian tanks….. I’m sure you see the difference.

    Well, this sorta reminds me of Afghanistan, when the prime minister “invited” the Russians in to “safeguard the security” of his country, then he he accidentally, unfortunately, brutally shot himself.
    Next day, the Russian troops moved into Afghanistan in mass.

    Mysterious troops. Yeah, sure. They’re Spetznaz.

    Don’t forget what happened to Tyrell. His replicant squished his eyes into the back of his head. These guys never ever learn.

    Officers assigned to neighborhoods west and north of UT had fielded complaints about people not following pedestrian laws near the campus. Officers patrolled the area Thursday, issuing seven citations and 28 warnings. Acevedo said those assignments are designed to change behavior and “not necessarily” to issue citations or take people to jail.
    He noted that 96 pedestrians have been killed and 1,757 injured in collisions with cars since 2009, not including a woman struck by a bus Friday on campus. The pedestrian is often at fault, Acevedo said.
    UT junior Christopher Lee Quintero had been at a Starbucks across the street taking photos when he saw an officer grab Stephen and began videotaping her arrest. Quintero posted the video to a blog Thursday afternoon that drew thousands of page views. It shows Stephen sitting down handcuffed and eventually being led to a police car, where she began screaming.
    “I was doing nothing wrong. I was crossing the street,” she says in the video.
    Since its posting, the blog drew more than 50,000 views and was linked in various social media platforms.
    Quintero said Friday that Stephen’s arrest seemed more dramatic when he witnessed it than it appeared on the video. He found fault with both Austin police and Stephen in the incident.
    “I think (officers were) a little excessive,” Quintero said. “But (Stephen) started yelling and making commotion. I think she handled it poorly.”

    From the Austin American Statesman:

    The arrest of a woman who police say jaywalked near the University of Texas campus Thursday drew criticism after a student posted video and photos of the incident online, drawing thousands of views and leading Austin’s police chief to defend the officers’ actions.
    Police on Thursday arrested Amanda Jo Stephen, 24, and charged her with failure to identify after police said she refused to cooperate when an officer attempted to stop her after she was seen disregarding a traffic control device while jogging near the university.
    Acevedo said he reviewed all reports and audio recordings of the arrest and concluded that officers acted appropriately in Stephen’s arrest. He said the woman had a direct line of sight to an officer in front of her trying to stop her. An officer ran beside her and grabbed her after yelling at her to stop several times, he said.
    Stephen used profanity when speaking with officers, leading them to handcuff her, according to the chief. At that point, she sat down of her own accord, went limp and refused to provide officers with her name. Only after being placed in the back of a police car did she provide her name, Acevedo said.
    “Quite frankly, she wasn’t charged with resisting and she’s lucky I wasn’t the arresting officer because I wouldn’t have been as generous,” he said.

    The people of New Orleans found out that public transportation had some serious drawbacks when they tried to get out of town before that little hurricane came calling. Sometimes it is nice to have your own vehicle.

    A May 2003 article in Discover magazine stated, “Appel has lined up federal grant money to help build demonstration plants to process chicken offal and manure in Alabama and crop residuals and grease in Nevada. Also in the works are plants to process turkey waste and manure in Colorado and pork and cheese waste in Italy. He says the first generation of depolymerization centers will be up and running in 2005. By then it should be clear whether the technology is as miraculous as its backers claim.”[21]
    However, as of August 2008, the only operational plant listed at the company’s website is the initial one in Carthage, Missouri.[22]
    Changing World Technology applied for an IPO on August 12; 2008, hoping to raise $100 million.[23]
    The unusual Dutch Auction type IPO failed possibly because CWT has lost nearly $20 million with very little revenue.[24][25]
    CWT, the parent company of Renewable Energy Solutions, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. No details on plans for the Carthage plant have been released.[26]

    So Obama lifts the sanctions on Iran, so Iran keeps building a bomb, then we hear about Saudi Arabia possibly helping Israel defend herself against an Iranian attack. Is it any wonder that now the same folks who are helping Iran are now trying to vilify Saudi Arabia? Why would that be? Maybe to make sure they don’t work with Israel to defend against Iran? I love the timing of this announcement. It’s wag the dog time again, folks and we’re the dog.

    You are right on the money. What a selfish person. I bet her family was hoping she wouldn’t make it home for Thanksgiving.

    She’s a feral animal, nothing more.
    Get used to the bars because appeal or no appeal, you’re gonna grow old in prison.

    I don’t care what kind of deal Secretary Doofus has worked out, but it had better be verified on the ground by an American airborne division. I wouldn’t trust the Iranians if they said day was bright and night was dark.
