Is ok. Now part of your regular doctor visits thanks to Obamacare, your doctor will survey your gun purchasing behavior.

It's been a BB gun, now it's a 105mm howitzer.

From now on your doctor will have a gun pointed at his head.

"Verdict pending"?

These guys are a bad joke. I'd note they gave Romney 4 Pinocchios for the Jeep ad, even though they admitted:

The series of statements in the ad individually may be technically correct, but the overall message of the ad is clearly misleading . . .
Politifact called it the "Lie of the Year" . . . and this week it became obvious it was more correct than the Jeep statements the "fact checkers" relied upon. Here's some well-deserved derision from Mark Hemingway:
On that note, we all know that "fact checking" is kabuki journalism, but would it have killed PolitiFact to act like real reporters for five seconds and express some richly deserved skepticism about Jeep's carefully worded denials about producing cars in China? [ . . . ]

Now I'd be confounded by PolitiFact's total inability to handle basic empirical matters if their motivation wasn't so transparent. Their "Lie of the Year" write-up reads like a gleeful vindication of the Obama campaign. No really, they use the word "gleeful":

Using the same standard on the President's claims, the 40% number isn't even correct (it's a round-up from 35.7), and it's being used in reference to the "gun show loophole" which is in no case more than 4%. So, based on that, it's technically incorrect, grossly misleading, and based on faulty data. What's that, six pinocchios? (Or at least it would be, if a Republican had said it.)

Cecil T,

According to a local Blog, your old home borough, Fairbanks Alaska, has just passed the 100,000 population mark. Fairbanks North Star Borough hits population milestone:

Map of the Fairbanks North Star Borough

Despite having crushingly expensive heating fuel, winter cold that thermometers sometimes can't measure, and mosquitoes the size of small airplanes, the Fairbanks North Star Borough has reached a population milestone, surpassing 100,000 people

Sitting just beneath the Arctic Circle (Brrrrrrrr!) the paper looks for the reason.

The reason for the growth? Babies.

Child abuse if you ask me.

Yet now the news budget of the Washington Post, the NY Times, CBS News, ABC News, et al can't pony up for one new survey dedicated to figuring out who buys guns and where?

TM,

Of course they don't have the budget for such things. Don't you remember this?

AS I've pointed out, you'll be shocked to learn that much of this funding doesn't rely on govt funds although some do, but mostly through interested parties like the Joyce and Russell Sage foundations, I know you're shocked as much as I.

daddy

On that note, we all know that "fact checking" is kabuki journalism, but would it have killed PolitiFact to act like real reporters for five seconds and express some richly deserved skepticism about Jeep's carefully worded denials about producing cars in China?

Unfortunately, the answer is "Yes, It would have killed them. It would have dried up their funding, alienated them from their Leftist bosses, and invited derision from the Press lackeys willing to shill for the Left. That is the nature of the Left.

The real "Lie Of The Year for 2012 was Politifacts, "The Lie Of The Year for 2012"

Just like the real "Lie Of The Year for 2010" was Politifiacts, "The Lie Of The Year 2010" That Lie was the following: The Democrats' health care reform law is a "government takeover of health care."

Right. Not a word of truth in that claim.

I just left a comment at WUWT but there's an NAS report out today called "Climate and Social Stress: Implications for Security Analysis" that cals for a (hyphenated just this way) whole-of-government strategy to deal with the supposedly now settled fact of climate change.

That has ceased to be science and has become the political organizing principle behind government. Pursuing an illusion with all the coercive and fiscal powers of the whole-of-government.

I guess we have that centralizing cultural thought the UN wanted to organize 21st century societies and economies around.

That was quick.

Despite having crushingly expensive heating fuel, winter cold that thermometers sometimes can't measure . . .

Don't miss it (the cold, at least).

Manti's girlfriend was fake.
Lance Armstrong was doping.
There are questions about whether HCOAB's figure was artificially enhanced.
There has been speculation that some JOMers may be invented personas.
Some attention seeking bikini model went to Miami Beach and tried to make it look like her bikini top "accidentally" came loose to garner attention.

And now we find out Beyonce was lip syncing at the Inaugural.

Everything seemingly is spinning out of control.

In other news, Katherine Webb has rejected the offer to go on Dancing with the Stars and is instead going to appear on a show called Celebrity Diving.

It's all so dizzying.

So you've probably read Taranto today. He takes up a Josh Marshall--whoever he is--piece at TPM ranting about icky guns and prints this putative email from somebody else as to why he, too, is against icky guns:

I accidentally killed my best friend when I was 15. Shot my best friend of eight years a week before we started high school. I was sitting in his room holding his rifle across my legs as he talked about how he had looked it up in some collectors guide and it was worth more than when he got it (Christmas or birthday or something). All the sudden there was a gigantic explosion and the rifle flew off my legs and I looked over as my friend fell over holding his gut and the whole world was tinted a hazy red.

Just like that! The gun went off!!

Anyone else belive this? Me neither.

So, the Virginia Democrat who brandished an AK the other day, wailing and moaning about how dangerous they are?

Remember how we heard he had a criminal record involving assault, and was disbarred?

It goes further. Seems he "borrowed" some firearms from the police forensic lab(!), and one of them showed up in the possession of a drug dealer a few years later.

Of course, he only reported them as stolen AFTER the one was recovered.

LUN


This does settle what I thought was unfair speculation. I speculated that the reason party officials accept candidates with criminal records is because they know that they can usually find some larger offenses if they dig a little. This guy, definitely.

QUIZ TIME! (And no cheating)

The name of Abraham Lincoln's dog was:

A) Fido
B) Rover
C) Spot

He was a mid-sized, yellow-colored dog that looked something like a small Labrador retriever.

Obviously a Yellow Lab. Good taste in dogs by Abe, and listen to this good sense as well:

(The Dog) was apparently a full-fledged member of the family and was an inside dog with the run of the house. He loved a horsehair sofa in the home and often claimed it for his own.

His time with the Lincoln family ended upon Lincoln's election to the presidency. Lincoln noticed how terrified (the dog) was of the cannon blasts marking Lincoln's election and never enjoyed being around trains. Lincoln was going to arrive in Washington, D.C., via train, and as his train went through the various towns, church bells and cannons were going to be fired. (Lincoln) doubted that he would enjoy the trip much at all. So with great sorrow, the Lincolns gave (the dog) to a local family with the stipulation that he be an indoor dog, given special treats, allowed the run of the home, etc. In fact, the Lincolns even gave (the dog's) favorite horsehair sofa to the family who took over the raising of (the dog).

According the Poodle and Dog Blog, the Rolls (the new owners) were given the following instructions for caring for (the dog):

-He was not to be scolded for entering the house with muddy paws.
-He was not to be tied up alone in the backyard.
-He was to be allowed into the Roll home whenever he scratched at the front door.
-Since he was accustomed to being fed by members of the family during mealtime, he was to be admitted to the dining room during those times.

Who knew I was Abe Lincoln?

Was the Car named Christine, by any chance, Gus?

Lyle, narciso did you a bigger favor than you may realize, as to find those pix of Ms Lee you would probably first run across numerous shots of MO, Sarah Jessica Parker, Anna Wintour and the like. Just not worth it.

Yes. Christine killed my bestest friend. Just started herself up and WHAM!!! Sort of like a gun just "going off".

Christine cost $250 back in 83. That was before CASH FOR MURDEROUS CLUNKERS.

So to see a filly, I'd have to sort through a bunch of nags, jimmyk? Thanks for the warning.

Also, per NYT there was a ginormous loss of viewers for the 2nd Coming Inaugural of the Anointed One.

In all cases the numbers were a huge drop-off from the same time periods in 2009. CNN was down for the period covering the oath and speech, from 8.119 million total viewers four years ago; that’s a decline of 61 percent. Four years ago Fox News had 5.291 million, meaning the falloff this year was 75 percent. And MSNBC dropped 25 per cent, from 3.022 million.

Almost makes you wonder who the hell voted for him, besides the media!

The rifle not only fired itself, it also flew off the guy's legs all by itself.

Lies.

I worked at a Skeet range in Fort Leavenworth as a teen. Twice in my lifetime I have personally witnessed 2 supposedly unloaded guns fire. Hope I never see another instance of that. But both of the weapons fired because someone pulled the trigger. They don't fly, and they don't pull their own triggers.

I worked at a Skeet range in Fort Leavenworth as a teen.

I live down the road in Atchison in the early 70s. My best friend, Glen, and I would shoot our 22s and shotguns damn near every weekend in those days. Never once came anywhere close to shooting each other. Not once.

Decent point just made by Gregg Gutfield on The Five.

Discussing some new Pro-Abortion Ad celebrating Roe V Wades Anniversary and having a man do the speechifying, Gutfield mentioned how The Dem's constantly use children in ads (HealthCare, Gun Control, Education, etc) to make their points, except when it happens to be an Abortion ad.

lyle

I should add that Glen and I were all of 13 or 14 at the time.

A colleague of mine told me he used to like guns until he accidently fired a rifle in his house. I inquired incredulously, "What was your finger doing on the trigger?!?" No answer.

I live down the road in Atchison

Lyle,

By chance did you ever do a canoe ride down the Missouri River to Leavenworth. I did not, but my older brother and his buddy did it in some race during a Pioneer Days Festival and they had a blast. Leavenworth High School was "the Pioneers."

I still handle a gun with the respect I learned on the rifle range at 12 years old.

Learn it young. Learn it once. Learn it right.

Those who would control my firearms need to get over the fact they never had the opportunity to handle them as a stripling.

Never did, daddy. Hung out a lot by the river but never floated it. Didn't do any river floating unitl I got to Idaho.

Daddy, my brother was the senior non-com at Ft. Leavenworth Disciplinary Barracks (military prison, which was not the federal penitentiary nearby) for several years.

Now part of your regular doctor visits thanks to Obamacare, your doctor will survey your gun purchasing behavior.
Hopefully Obamacare doesn't have a provision about lying through your teeth.

Almost makes you wonder who the hell voted for him, besides the media!
I have a theory - unproven - that the second coming of Barry I was a McCain moment for many left of center voters. Blacks and Obamabots marched off to the polls with great zeal, but the remainder held their noses and voted for what they perceived to be the lesser of two evils. So when you think about it, the full blown media character assassination of Romney was really the media getting to vote twice.

Not that it really matters anymore.


By chance did you ever do a canoe ride down the Missouri River to Leavenworth.

Did this when Ft. Leavenworth was my duty station. Great fun when the water is up. At the end, you can repair down the road to historic Atchison, KS, or the nearby Weston, MO for drinking and fraternization with the locals. Crappy place for a 2LT with all the free-range MAJs and LTCs milling about, but lots of fun river-related activities.

In other news, the Lap Dancer who fell over a balcony a few weeks back has died. I missed that she had passed on to the big pole dance in the sky. If we can save even one Lap Dancer by banning Lap dances...

Meanwhile, (OSHA) the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, says they are trying to determine if they have jurisdiction to investigate the accident. A decision is expected in the next few weeks.

Those houses were still there ca 2008-2009. Ran by them many times, up the long hill starting at the small gate onto Metropolitan, and then down around the bend to the airstrip. They were definitely cool old Plains Victorian, and I always got a little Horse Soldier vibe whenever I went by them. Apparently they were not kept up very well when I was there. Used to hear people bitching about them.

I used to work right across the street from the old Disciplinary Barracks, which they were converting into an MP barracks. That place reminded me to keep on the straight and narrow. Leavenworth also has one of my favorite golf courses in the Army too, groomed nicely by prison labor. I became a very good golfer when I was there because there wasn't much else to do besides golf, fish, raft and drink.

And they said Sarah's death panels' discovery was the lie of 2009, so much for that. the Daily Mail is good for the celebrity crawl, and solid on the debunking the coming of the SkyDragon, yet they have very often trawled in the worst political gossip.

So it's hard to tell the players without a scorecard in this In Amenas debacle;

Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal told reporters that a man, judged “by his English accent” to have been Canadian, was among the 32 Islamists whose raid on the Algerian refinery prompted a global crisis. One of the Canadians, identified only as “Shaddad”, is alleged to have played a leading role in the attack which left 58 hostages – including 37 Westerners – dead after a four-day battle with Algerian forces. Five further Western workers are still unaccounted for. “A Canadian was among the militants,” Mr Sellal said. “He was co-ordinating the attack.”


There apparently was an American among the hostage takers, although as with the French Yoots, that's often a misnomer…

Planned Parenthood Sets Record for Abortions and Government Funding

"The nation’s largest abortion provider maintained its infamous title, performing 333,964 abortions—a record for the organization that received 45 percent of its revenues from taxpayer-funded government sources during the 2011–2012 fiscal year." ... "Last year, like many before it, Planned Parenthood saw a very comfortable income, reporting excess revenues exceeding $87 million and net assets of more than $1.2 billion."

Looking at Wiki it appears even the Aztecs had nothing on us (& this estimate is considered high) - "Michael Harner, in his 1997 article The Enigma of Aztec Sacrifice, estimates the number of persons sacrificed in central Mexico in the 15th century as high as 250,000 per year."

...and exactly WHY do we have to pay for this business? It is a business. They make money & have net assets of more than $1.2 billion.!! If nothing else, they should have to stand on their own like every other business in America. Hardware stores, hair salons, taco stands,... why does our government take our money & give it to this ONE lousy business?

You and Soylent lived in the Alps of Kansas. I was in the Sahara of Kansas, Salina, late 50's. Dad was deputy Air Wing CO at Shilling and I was a clumsy high school sophmore. at Sacred Heart HS. I joined the basketball team. No skills but being 6' 2"" at that age tends to get you noticed especially back in those days.

My coach was a guy named Anthony Zambrusla (sp?) who had over. 400 wins. Back then ther were no divisions based on school size. A lot like Indiana aka Hoosiers. We played all the big schools including Wichita East, Ft. Hays, Russell, etc. and we had less than 100 kids in the school. Use to win some and lose some but not by much. Grat coach.

If you've ever operated a Browning .50 caliber machine gun you'll know about guns firing by themselves. The gun fires from a closed bolt, so that after you fire a burst there's one in the chamber. After just a few bursts the barrel is hot enough to cook that round off after several seconds, so you sure as hell have to be mindful of where it is pointed, unless you open the breech and jack the round out.
