Squashed flat

I was in chat this morning, and a friend from the UK tells me about this lady who sat on her boyfriend, squishing him to death. The lady in question is from Ohio, and according to the article 'weighs more than 21 stone". 21 stone is 294 lbs. Her boyfriend weighed 8 stone = 168 lbs. According to the article, there was domestic abuse in the situation. She had 3 children with him, and finally I guess got fed up with it and squashed him like a bug. She was sentenced to three years probation and 100 hours community service after pleading guilty to involuntary manslaughter. here is the story with a video.

A soldier gets screwed again

This time (yet again) by the government. He is attacked by a known al-quaeda operative, and shoots the guy in self-defense, then is given a 25 year sentence for premeditated murder. Here is the blog about what happened with his case, and information about his case, and where you can help donate for legal fees.

Rule of Law as stated by Hayek

It is the Rule of Law, in the sense of the rule of formal law, the absence of legal privileges of particular people designated by authority, which safeguards that equality before the law which is the opposite of arbitrary government.

A necessary, and only apparently paradoxical, result of this is that formal equality before the law is in conflict, and in fact incompatible, with any activity of the government deliberately aiming at material or substantive equality of different people, and that any policy aiming directly at a substantive ideal of distributive justice must lead to the destruction of the Rule of Law. To produce the same results for different people, it is necessary to treat them differently. To give different people the same objective opportunities is not tog vie them the same subjective chance. It cannot be denied that he Rule of Law produces economic inequality - all that can be claimed for it is that this inequality is not designed to affect particular people in a particular way.

The Rule of Law used to govern in this country. Now it is a redistributive law that governs. The founding fathers would not recognize what has become of this government, it is turning into a shambles, where blatant bribes are given for votes. A strong horsewhip for the backs of those taking bribes, and for those offering the bribes.

Sex offenders

They're in the news, and Houston has a story on our local sex offenders (all 47 of them) in the city limits. Evidently there are no restrictions on where they can live, so one could be living right next to a school, daycare, whatever. Someone that had been molested when she was 11, her mother ran into the guy at the local HEB (grocery store). Lovely. But I guess in a small town, eventually you are going to run into the people that you have come across before. I guess with such a small town, eventually you are going to see someone you don't want to ever lay eyes on. The sex offender in the article lives 1/10th of a mile away from the Girl Scout house. The guy had nothing to say to the Houston newsguy about why he lived there.

The mayor, in all his brilliance, says "Podunk does not have any ordinances pertaining to sexual offenders living within the city limits, nor do we have ordinances regarding murder, theft and other heinous crimes. The laws of the State of Texas encompass all of these offenses."

He wouldn't even go on camera with the newsguy from Houston. I didn't realize it was up to each little town to make its own law regarding sexual offenders living near where kids are.

It's up to each person to check for their neighborhood where the sex offenders are, and that's accomplished easily enough, at the Texas State Registry, where you can find all the perverts anyone could wish for.

You can search by city, zip code, name, address, etc.

A helpless Democrat, wearing sandals, shorts, an ‘Obama’ cap and a ‘Save the Trees’ t-shirt, was screaming while struggling frantically and thrashing around trying to free himself from the grasp of a 10-foot grizzly.

As the Pope watched in horror, a group of Republican loggers with ‘Go Sarah’ t-Shirts came racing up. One quickly fired a .44 magnum into the bear’s chest. The other two reached up and pulled the bleeding, semiconscious Democrat from the bear’s grasp. Then using long clubs, the three loggers finished off the bear and two of them threw it onto the bed of their truck while the other tenderly placed the injured Democrat in the back seat.

As they prepared to leave, the Pope summoned them to come over.. ‘I give you my blessing for your brave actions!’ he told them. ‘I have heard there was a bitter hatred between Republican loggers and Democratic environmental activists, but now I’ve seen with my own eyes that this is not true.’

As the Pope drove off, one logger asked his buddies, ‘Who was that guy?’
‘It was the Pope,’ another replied. ‘He’s in direct contact with Heaven and has access to all wisdom.’

‘Well,’ the logger said, ‘he may have access to all wisdom, but he doesn’t know squat about bear hunting! By the way, is the bait still alive, or do we need to go back to Massachusetts and get another one?

More idiocy

The guy that blew up 6 CIA agents, the Jordanian - he knows the truth - that this is not a 'war on terrorism' but a war on Islam. When will the US wake up to that fact? Saying that there is a war on terrorism is like during WW2 saying "we're at war against blitzkrieg". I suggest reading one or two of Robert Spencer's books - The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and Religion of Peace? There are other books by Bat Ye'or, Brigitte Gabriel, Future Jihad by Walid Phares, and many other good books out there that put to rest the lie that it is 'just another religion'. And it's the idiots running Washington, and the liberals who are placating people, meanwhile, there's underwear bombers, some guy on a flight just today had to be taken off, on a flight from Miami to Detroit to turn around.

Yesterday, after church, we went to the theater in another town (being the local theater's projectors shake), plus their concession stand is closed down by the health department. Got a medium popcorn, medium diet coke no ice, and I was originally planning on taking a nap during the movie. I ended up liking it. The CGI was pretty doggone good. I had read several reviews of it that said it was a liberal-themed movie, so I wasn't sure how strong that message was.. I just ignored that and enjoyed the film. Then today, I read a review from Big Hollywood, another conservative's POV about it - a filmmaker's critique of it HERE, and this review is the best one I've seen.

Speaking of evilness, this Obama government has no shame - the mortgage bailout, 27 billion so far, has saved about 31,000 houses from going belly up on their mortgage. That's around 870,000$ per house. When does government do something better than private business? Look at UPS and Fedex vs the USPS. They make profits, the USPS is in the red all the time, and has never broke even.

Look at Medicare. When it was brought forward, they figured it would cost 500 million a few years down the road. HAH! Each minute, it rises. At this time it's $74,107,117,000,000.00 roughly. and jumping up each second. What freakin idiot thought this would work? And that's just Medicare, not to mention Social Security, or the Prescription Drug liability. Liability per citizen for unfunded stuff - $346,365.00. Assets per citizen - $256,679. That's including newborn babies too. No one wants to cut their own stuff.. yet that's what it is going to take. Roll back, roll back, roll back.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac got big bailouts this past Christmas eve. They have to borrow more taxpayer money to pay the dividends on the stocks owned by the government to the taxpayers. Is this a stupid loop or what?
