    hmmm….it lacks something….

    ah. I know. A few Phalanx CIWS batteries up on the turrets would spiffy that place up a bit, I think.

    Those, and some “No Trespassing” signs.

    Yes.

    Video of 2-Year-Old ‘Bedtime Bandit’ Picking a Lock to Get Stuffed Animals Is Probably the Cutest Thing You’ll See Today

      The young Neal Cafferty in action . . . That is one smart little kid. Those parents are going to have their hands full. Actually, I’d say they already do. (And while this was totally cute. . . they need to make sure he understands soon how not-cute that sort of thing can get. . .)

    • Whoa! Now if he’d only had a can of black spray paint to black out the surveillance cameras! Maybe he’ll figure that out when he’s 3.

  4. Questionable source, but interesting article about the legal lapdog Eric Holder. If the President does it, it’s legal.

    I learned about a new book yesterday that looks interesting. Haven’t read it yet (just ordered), but wanted to give a heads up to anyone interested. Titled Citizen’s Last Stand:

    http://www.amazon.com/The-Citizens-Last-Stand-Volume/dp/0615742637/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1364406124&sr=8-1&keywords=citizen%27s+last+stand

    • Harvey says:

      Thank you for fixing my links 🙂 Is there something I am supposed to be doing as a poster, or is that back room stuff?

      • Thanks for the tip on the new book. It DOES look interesting. I’m not sure that anyone fixed your link, actually. I could be wrong, but in my experience, WordPress sometimes automatically displays the graphic for Amazon.com links, and sometimes it doesn’t. This one may not even stay like this. I’ve seen them revert to links again if Amazon changes their code or something. So, no, I don’t think you need to do anything else, other than supply the link. Thanks again for that.

    North Korea is rattling it’s sabers again and cut off it’s last comm lines.
    Weren’t Bill Richardson and some Google dude CEO or something or another over there just before dumb dumb clown Dennis Rodman was? Makes me wonder wtf is going on over there and what was messaged, said or promised.
    It makes me think that this is another black flag situation for Oblummer, because this one doesn’t seem to follow the natural progression of stupidity and saber rattling that everyone is used to, historically. I was stationed over there in the late 80s early 90s. South Korea was a pretty cool tour, in those days. I thought the DMZ was a little intense…

    • My brother was over there in the 90s, too (Army). I agree that this latest round of noise makes even less sense than usual, and it’s got me worried. I also wonder what role China is playing, but I haven’t heard much.

    I hope the voters in the 2nd Congressional District of Illinois wake up and elect this man.

      The good news is that the TX house is about 2:1 r:d. It’ll never happen. It is sad to realize that these people walk among us. 🙄
