matt-

Those stats are released, not posted.

narciso

So the story goes back nearly a year, now identity theft, seems small, but not when you add explosives and weapons into the deal;

NK

Narc-- the NYPost article has a photo of Mr. greene-- he fits the junkie/bomber part well. Plus the article says Dr Gleidman and his social x-ray realtor wife are grandparents-- mazel tov! I wonder --is the kid born a heroin addict? does that happen in utero?

Rob Crawford
And the idiots down in Springfield think another law will bring it all under control.

No, they don't. They just think it will give them another way to declare their political opponents -- those not willing to put on the slave's collar -- criminals.

If they were serious about gun violence, they'd crack down on felons with guns. But they won't, because that would:

1) Tick off the urban thug cohorts.
2) Put too many of their supporters at risk.
3) Involve real work.
4) Not target the people they really want to punish.

Danube of Thought

I don't know how the State Troopers are going to go about enforcing that law. Will they get warrants to enter the households?

And I should think that when the TRO, and later the injunction, issues it is going to be front-page new all over the state.

matt

Yes it does, NK. A big problem in NYC back in the 70's was detoxifying infants. Very scary stuff. A friend of mine was an RN up at Lincoln in Harlem and left the profession in despair at the time.

Between the gunshot wounds and knifings and general horror of it all, it would break the soul of a saint. It was a very nasty time in the city.

Melinda Romanoff

They already have the list. Illinois Atty General, Lisa Madigan (daughter of House Leader Mike Madigan) runs the troopers. I'm sure the reason Rahm's been silent on the milestone is because they've been working on the details on how to do the deed.

narciso

W.E.B, Griffin's detective series, which my late philly cop friend told me was mostly based on real characters, dealt with the Mainline blue chip counterparts to these two, including one
book that dealt with an environmental terrorist ring,

Captain Hate

DoT, TK and jimmyk sounds like a fun get-together.

Rob Crawford
I don't know how the State Troopers are going to go about enforcing that law.

For one, they won't. The locals will be expected to do it; the Illinois Highway Revenue Department is too small and too busy.

As for search warrants... I suspect the "law" will say that being issued a firearm owner permit is sufficient.

henry

They already have the list

Yup, everyone with a FOID card will have their 4th amendment rights violated along with their 2nd amendment rights. The Trap Nationals will have to move out of IL as well.

narciso

Can someone explain why most of these laws, in Illinois, regarding gun ownership came about by 1982, before the drug wars really went into overdrive,

NK

So that Gleidman girl has created a heroin addicted child? heartbreaking-- but according to Dr Gleidman's PR whores she's 'only' a junkie not a terrorist. The debauchery of the Rich-Left knows no bounds. I pray for the child to suffer as little as possible from the affliction forced on her by this so-called mother.

Extraneus

Why would they need a search warrant unless a person refused to surrender their weapons? What percentage of gun owners do we think would resist?

Melinda Romanoff

I was in Sparta in November. That competition set up is two miles long!

Rob Crawford
but according to Dr Gleidman's PR whores she's 'only' a junkie not a terrorist.

Never mind the money her addiction supplies to terrorist groups...

Captain Hate

I was in Sparta in November

Sparta Wisconsin? I used to have distant family there.

Clarice

I think DoT and I are on the same page about the Ill gun law threat. PSHAW

CH, Sparta IL home of the ATA and the "World Shooting and Recreational Complex".

Jimmyk@3:03pm
Unfortunately, I agree with your analysis of the Northeast. I don't see it changing any time soon, either.

matt

In good news, the number of torched cars in France seems to be remaining stable. In 2007, the last year for which statistics were released, 1147 cars were torched, most of them unoccupied.

This year's total according to the Ministerie' De L'Interieur was 1,193. Adjusted for inflation this is a net decrease and a promising trend.

President Francois Hollande declared victory in his War on Thugs.

In other news, Peugeot said they were expecting an increase in sales of its new flame resistant L'Esbestos 3 cylinder clown car for the month of January.

narciso

THe Post seems to have better sources, although the Harvard connection, with Greene, seems as real as the guy who pretended he was Sidney poitier's kid, the Beast seems to dance around the subject, I guess that's what a proper press kit does for you,

narciso

Have there been any studies on the impact of 'auto flambe' on insurance rates, in the greater
Paris Metropole, Matt?

Old Lurker

Anyone besides me enjoying Crybaby Christie all over the radio bemoaning the lack of support from the Rep leadership for the massive giveaway to his state?

Could not happen to a nicer guy.

(Sorry NJ Nan if this impacts you...)

Old Lurker

NJ "J"an sorry

NK

NJ/NY Sandy $$$?? -- the House Repubs will wait for the Dems to come to them begging for the $$$, and it will all go into the Debt Limit hopper discussion in February. It's just business.

Danube of Thought

"I suspect the'"law' will say that being issued a firearm owner permit is sufficient."

The existence of a permit would be sufficient to get a warrant issued, but would not take the place of a warrant. And if a cop without a warrant knocked on my door and asked for my weapons, I would decline to talk with him or allow him in the house without a warrant.

In any event, I suspect the TRO will be issued in a heartbeat. Any cops who confiscate any firearms while on notice of the TRO will be in contempt.

Let's hope some heads in the legislature will roll if this thing passes.

Jane on Ipad

I'm a mean old bitch but why don't these people have insurance?

I read something about Rahm planning to confiscate guns. That's not what is being shoved thru today is it?

Captain Hate

OL, Fat Boy's cries are more music to my ears than that Springsteen garbage he dines on. I hope it causes additional eating disorders for Coulter.

centralcal

Well, it looks like (A)B's weather forecast didn't hold. According to media reports Obama is golfing right now, in Hawaii. Didn't see any mention of rain.

NJ Jan

OL
It doesn't impact me. The Sandy package contains so much pork not related to disaster that it is disgusting. I can understand some temporary aid to assist the areas completely devastated, but it is not the Federal Govt's business to rebuild the state. Maybe if the state lowered business taxes and offered incentives for building NJ, we wouldn't need "assistance". Of course that is a fantasy.

Threadkiller

Jimmy, my phone has gone haywire with a charging proplem. My emails get stuck in a nexus when it shuts down. I will check for the email in just a little bit.

Melinda Romanoff

TK-

And it explains why my calls don't go through.

Rob Crawford
The existence of a permit would be sufficient to get a warrant issued, but would not take the place of a warrant.

In the Duchy of Chicago?

And if a cop without a warrant knocked on my door and asked for my weapons, I would decline to talk with him or allow him in the house without a warrant.

In Illinois, north of I-74, I suspect the police would only have a hard time in the violence-prone parts of Chicago and Peoria. South of I-74, well, they wouldn't even try East St. Louis, and downstate they're likely to end up as late holiday decorations on lampposts...

(But I have a bad impression of most of the people of upstate Illinois.)

centralcal

OL - Christie's whining is disgusting and so are Peter King's threats. They know full well that a huge chunk of that money is being spent on anything but the Sandy victims.

however, per Twitter:

Chad Pergram ‏@ChadPergram

Boehner/Cantor says "getting critical aid" to #Sandy victims is 1st priority of new Congress. Flood insurance first. Rest Jan 15.

pagar

Matt,

I'd like to see the general stats on shoot-em-ups in Chicago. Wounded, incidents, etc.

I don't think it would give you everything you want, but it gives a lot of wounded numbers along with gunshot deaths etc.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/

Example:

"Officials: West Side man is city's first 2013 homicide victim

Updated Jan 01, 2013
A 20-year-old West Side man was the first Chicago homicide victim of 2013, one of 11 people across the city shot since midnight."

Clarice

Christie's suck up to Obama came at a critical time in the campaign..Too bad for him.

Jim Miller

So the new baby -- possibly addicted -- is named Melody.

Doesn't that name seem too, well, normal for parents with an apartment filled with terrorist material?

Maybe they chose a normal name on the advice of counsel

Threadkiller

Aha!! That, that does explain it, Mel. I will call you when I get it sorted out.

The repair shop wants the phone for just long enough to convince me to buy a new one.

The repair can be found online and it should only take a few minutes. It is like dealing with an auto repair shop.

NK

Clarice@422-- in truth I think that is urban legend. Obama won by dragging just enough votes in using Big Data management, and RR lost by never connecting with working whites and asians who are enemies of Obamacare and Obamanomics. sandy was on the margins or vote totals and had ZERO effect on the EC, IMO.

Rob Crawford
Maybe they chose a normal name on the advice of counsel

Or they're Dr. Who fans and picked the name of one of the most annoying characters in the show's 50-year history.

"...the attack from the anti-gun folks is far broader than initially indicated."

As the media turns:

Brian Stelter ‏@brianstelter

BREAKING: Al Jazeera is finalizing a deal to take over Current TV. http://nyti.ms/VvhxMe

NK

CC@452-- that's a joke right? Onion stuff-- right?

centralcal

Nope - apparently not a joke! But, funny, nonetheless.

Thomas Collins

Perhaps Pravda can take over MessNBC. Al Jazeera and Pravda probably won't be as progcentric as Current TV and MessNBC.

NK

more pathetic IMO -- the Qataris buying influence in the Dem Party on the cheap using that whore algore. What an effin' DB algore is-- he sells himself cheap to Occidental as a callow young man and then to the Qataris as a greedy old man-- what a whore.

centralcal

Actually NK, I am having quite a chuckle over this from the article:

Al Jazeera may absorb some Current TV staff members, according to the people, who insisted on anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

Bolding is mine. Oh how I would love to see Al Gore, Joy Behar, Eliot Spitzer, Jennifer Granholm et al. absorbed!

Thomas Collins

Be easy on algore, NK. He's probably frustrated with the trouble he apparently has getting his chakras chakred!

Jim Eagle

Here is why guys get rich reading the fine print in our laws. Especially those Green Energy laws we like to pass:

"A cargo train filled with biofuels crossed the border between the US and Canada 24 times between the 15th of June and the 28th of June 2010; not once did it unload its cargo, yet it still earned millions of dollars... The companies “made several million dollars importing and exporting the fuel to exploit a loophole in a U.S. green energy program.” Each time the loaded train crossed the border the cargo earned its owner a certain amount of Renewable Identification Numbers (RINs), which were awarded by the US EPA to “promote and track production and importation of renewable fuels such as ethanol and biodiesel.”

Clever. Read the whole thing

Thomas Collins

Perhaps Al Jazeera will get rights to telecast an upcoming Super Bowl, and for a halftime show we'll have an imam reading a fatwa. I guess the cheerleaders will have to cheer in those burkas.

I acknowledge that this is most likely part of the continuing effort to shariarize America, but at the moment, as is apparently also the case with cc, I can only chuckle.

NK

JiB@509-- was a Buffett railroad involved? To be discussed over drinks.

Jim Eagle

On another note: The Tea Party Lives On.

Debt Ceiling comes up in a couple of months. No more fiscal cliff stuff to distract. Lets see if the GOP and their right wing have learned anything or are still under the spell of Duke and Duke.

Thomas Collins

JiB, I saw a young man at a Boston Financial District lunch place today wearing a Redskins jacket. I don't ever recall seeing that in Boston (I have seen plenty of Giants, Cowboys and Steelers clothing being worn over the years in the Boston area). RGIII fever is apparently heading north.

ANNOUNCEMENT:

I just sent a blast JOM email update on Sue, but sadly I realize I am lacking many of your emails and so decided to post this news I just received from her daughter:

Hi Jan. This is Brook. I'm Suzanne's daughter. She wanted me to update you. The first part is over. She is cancer free. The lymph nodes are clear. We are thrilled! She is in the reconstructive phase right now. It should be over soon. We will update again soon!
Brook

Thomas Collins

Great news, cc. Please pass along more love and prayers from me and I'm sure everyone else.

TK, my email was about 5 days ago.

CC

Thank you for the update on Sue. That is wonderful news. I will continue to say a prayer for her continued recovery and good health

Frau Schicksalsmelodie

"So the new baby -- possibly addicted -- is named Melody."

I think that is the name of their favorite illegal drug spelled backwards.

Jim Eagle

CC,

Great news. I said a prayer today for Sue when we visited St. Pat's. I have a little list in my head for people I know in duress and try to cover it each day. Did you send her anything like you said you would?

OT: Paging Paul Krugman. Latvia Does Not Need Your Advice, Thank You.

henry

CC, thanks for the good news to start the year!

Jim Eagle

TC,

"I saw a young man at a Boston Financial District lunch place today wearing a Redskins jacket."

Probably Bill's videographer back from Ashburn with a souvinier jacket. This tells CH and I that Belichick figures he is going to have to meet them in the Super Bowl. Heard it hear first:)

narciso

Great news, central, about Sue.

centralcal

Not yet, Jack. Until she is out of recovery and in a room no deliveries can be made.

Probably, delivery tomorrow.

Thank you, cc.

Extraneus

Looking for Republicans to purge?

King also said he was ready to buck Republican leaders on every issue until the Sandy aid is approved.

“As far as I’m concerned, I’m on my own,” King said. “They’re going to have to go a long way to get my vote on anything.”

In an interview with POLITICO, King placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of House Speaker John Boehner.

“Throughout this whole deal Cantor was totally straight with us,” King said, blaming Boehner.

Seems like a plus for Boehner, but I'm for dumping him anyway. If it's going to be done, this is the time to do it, and I'd rather have a Speaker I can root for. Cantor seems more solid to me. Maybe I'm short-sighted, but Boehner rarely says anything that makes me feel like we're truly on the same side.

Great news about Sue! Still on the prayer list.

Strange Illness indeed!

Jane - Mock the Media!

CC- I just sent you 2 emails. The 1st said: "Best news of 2013" and the second said: "POST IT! You must post it!"

I really should learn to finish reading before I shoot off my mouth.

This is the happiest news I've heard for a long time. Tell Brook we are cheering in MA.

Thomas Collins

JiB, I was hoping Pats vs. Seahawks (I figured Belichick and Carroll would make a good story line) or Broncos vs. Redskins (Shanahan tries to top his former team, and the frisky newcomer RGIII tries to outgun the veteran Manning). But Redskins vs. Patriots would also be fun! Watch out, RGIII. Wilfork is faster than you think!

centralcal

Extraneus, I am agnostic about Boehner and Cantor. Would like someone more articulate and tougher, but that someone will have to step forward and be identified.

Meanwhile, somebody needs to slap King and Christie out of their delirium. Good grief, Twitter was rampant with their rantings and ravings. Utterly disgusting.

centralcal

lol, Jane! I haven't received your emails yet, anyway.

There may have been a leak or explosion at Iran's Isfahan facilities..several conflicting reports...Guardian says an explosion. Earlier reports were of officials warning Isfahan residents to leave the area.

centralcal

Can someone explain this from the NY Post to me:

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton left New York Presbyterian Hospital briefly this afternoon for more tests related to her potentially life-threatening blood clot.

Clinton, 65, left the Manhattan hospital, walking out under her own power, after being admitted last Sunday evening. She returned to the hospital later this afternoon.

She LEFT the hospital to go somewhere else for more tests and then RETURNED to the hospital in the afternoon?

The article includes photos of her with Bill and Chelsea at her side. Do you suppose they went down the street for cocktails?

narciso

I had that piece, up earlier, from the Free Beacon, I recall Isfahan, because it was a subject in one of Claire Berlinski's sort of roman a clef romance, 'Lion Eyes' one of the characters, a mysterious Iranian archeologist,
had connections to the Golden City, the Persian empire era complex.

Somebody should tell Fatso "there's no more money!"

Just arrived in Seattle and got great news from Jane.

YIPPEE!

They put me in First Class today, so it was 3 Bloody Mary's and by the time I hit Manny T and Jim Miller territory, it was clear as a bell and Mt Baker and Mt Ranier are right now busting out white capped in astounding visibility.

US Grant's Memoirs have got us down in 1846 headed to Mexico, but I am no longer in doubt as to the outcome in Texas as Jane has just e-mailed me that unlike the Alamo, the Cowboys, the Mav's, the Texan's or the Ranger's, a positive outcome looms on the horizon in Lone Star land!

"Check your e-mail JOMer's" is right. Thanks Jane.

Thanks for the update, cc. Great news for Sue. Mrs H is a cancer survivor but not everybody is so fortunate just due to dumb luck. I'm sure everybody here has seen both sides.

Well, Hillary has now been discharged from the hospital - multiple media reporting on Twitter.

Now I am sure she went for cocktails before checking out.

In the truth is stranger than fiction column I will note this without comment:

CLEVELAND — A woman was seriously injured after a bizarre incident inside a local strip club early Wednesday morning.

It happened at Christie’s Caberet in The Flats, just after 1 a.m.

According to police, 22-year-old Lauren Block, of Richmond Heights, was reportedly on the second floor of the club when she went over the balcony and landed on her head.

Police said they were first told the woman had been thrown over the balcony, but once they arrived, they realized it was an accident.

According to a report from Cleveland police, a witness said he was getting a lap dance from Block on the second floor of the club when something went terribly wrong.

The reporting officer said this of the incident: “(The witness) stated that (the dancer) grabbed the rail, as he was facing away from the balcony, and she tried to complete some sort of jump/dance move, and accidentally went head first over the rail.”

Block reportedly fell 15 feet and suffered “major head trauma.”

She was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center, where she is listed in critical condition.

Police said there is no further investigation on their side, because it appears to have been a horrible accident.

However, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating

LOL

Hey gmaz, how have you been,

Make 'em all wear helmets now, gmax. That's the only answer.

Amazingly well actually. Had the whole brood, including daughter in law with child home for Christmas plus my elderly mom and dad came in as well. House was full and joyous. The holidays are really a fantastic time of year. Next up off to Destin to celebrate my birthday! Is life good or what? Thanks for asking hoping you are well Narc as well.

I wonder how Cantor would do as Speaker. Don't know that much about him, but he seems to have an air of being both sharper and tougher than Boehner.

I haven't seen him break into tears in front of Dianne Sawyer, so there's that.

It might be the only thing she would have on! OSHA is from the government and here to help...
