1 Good Morning Morons. Today is Saturday, February 14, 2015. On this day in 1929 Al Capon's gang murdered 7 people at a garage in Chicago. This resulted in the National Firearms Act which banned machine guns, sawed off shotguns, and short barreled rifles. And like all gun control laws it did not result in a significant decrease in crime or murder. (Besides being unconstitutional)

Speaking of the St. Valentine's Day Massacre, the film of the same name (despite starring a distinctly non-Italian Jason Robards as Scarface Al) was actually pretty good, even for a Roger Corman flick.

Look for a young Jack Nicholson in a cameo doing a voice that sounds exactly like the one Marlon Brando used a few years later as Vito Corleone. I'd lay odds it's where he stole it from.

47 Obama and the FCC. On the one hand, it seems odd somehow that a Federal Agency can be 'independent'. What does that mean, exactly; an independent fiefdom withing the National Government, or outside of it?

As Jay Cost points out, the Federal Government was captured by big business, special interests, and political partisans a long time ago. "A Republic No More".

On the other hand, it's Obama who dictates to the FCC that the commission will regulate the internet as a common utility under the Communications Act of 1934 even though the monopoly AT(ampersand)T was dismantled by the Federal courts years ago.

Oklahoma is looking at the gas chamber again, after a couple of "troubling" injection executions.

The best deterrent effect of punishment, parents or the State, comes from its being (1) swift and (2) sure. Not having those is cruel and unusual for society.

56 "What I don't understand is the internet itself is not a company or entity. It's a technology. "

Ya, we regulate 'automotive emissions'.

It's a command and control economy. Someone like Obama, or some activist voice, or group demands the government 'regulate' some thing. The result is, the government dictates what an industry will do, or not do, or what it will produce, and how it will produce that service or product.

The government dictates that your product will get 36 miles per gallon of gasoline. No recourse, no appeal, no excuses. You do it or go out of business.

86 One other problem with days of cold weather is the dry air in the house. I am running a humidifier 24/7 and putting damp wash rags over the vents to try to get the humidity up. Can't get it above the 20% range which is too dry. It's killing my sinuses.

On a purely biological/anthropological level, yes it's a fact that we tend to identify with those that look/act like us. It's tribal and goes back tens of thousands of years of not longer.

That said, you are 100% correct. Normal decent people (conservatives) keep it so buried as to be a non-issue with most of us.

It is the left that gets its power from balkanization and ripping at the wounds of the nation, attempting to make the latter the nation's legacy - not the facts of our founding and our magnificent history of freedom and tolerance.

Burton noted that Fekete wasnt that smart if he indeed shoplifted at the mall during the sportsmans show, which is attended by policemen, gun aficionados and 75 year old vets who will definitely throw down if the need arises.

114 Carol: "Mindful Webworker, Where did you move from?"

Ah, twenty-one years ago this Spring, we moved out of Chicago after living there for fifteen years. It was Milady's home town (W Side), her mom and several of her siblings still lived there. We had lots of her family around a lot of the time, lots of cousins for our kids. This native smallville Okie had lots of "ins" to know how to live well in the Big Potato. It was a good and comfortable life, luxurious even. For big city living.

When we had a shot at moving us & the kids to semi-rural smallville, we cut off a couple of limbs and left city luxuries behind. It's been harsh, and hard, in a lot of ways, failed at everything I set out to do after the move, and we may never have a stable or comfortable life again, but on the whole I thank God we were able to get away when we did.

And our kids, now well-informed adults who can look back at Chicago as it is, have thanked us for having moved, so I guess it worked all right.

Since you asked.

115 14 Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez told The Daily Caller Friday that he didn't know that illegal immigrants are eligible for tax refunds even if they haven't paid taxes.


It is the BS EIC that the commies instigated years ago. It is pure welfare under a different name. And anyone who didn't know they would get it is an idiot.

I hate to say it Vic, but EIC/EITC was one of Milton Friedman's ideas. My least favorite idea of his, but nobody's perfect.

I can see his point, it makes sense when you look at it from the point of efficiency in delivery of funds, and it is unabashedly naked in it's idea and application of income redistribution.

Congress could fix this "new illegals loophole" with legislation, and they better be ready to override a veto to get it, too.

121 My HS senior's class is doing H&R's budget challenge contest (prize is a chance at scholarships). I was helping her get set up with her choices.
The idea is that each kid is an employee with a certain salary, and they have to budget loan payments, rent, credit card, utilities, insurance, etc. You earn points by how much you save in your 401k, minus deductions for fees and penalties for late payments etc.
It was fun seeing her figuring how much she can stash in the 401, and whether she has enough cash flow to be in the lower-cost minimum balance checking account vs the higher cost no min balance account. She said "now I know why you & dad are so wierd about writing checks."

President Obamas stay at the Fairmont Hotel atop Nob Hill brought San Franciscos cable cars to a stop as a security precaution and tourists were none too happy.

Instead, a Municipal Railway employee in a orange vest steered visitors
up the block and around the corner to stand in line for an occasional
shuttle bus to carry them to Chinatown and beyond.

Muni spokesman Paul Rose said the shutdown was ordered by law enforcement, and we have to follow the guidelines. The cable cars stopped climbing halfway to the stars Thursday evening, and wont run again until noon Saturday.

138 My boy spawn called yesterday! While he was out in the field (army training sir) he was firing a 50cal (large weapon of some kind). Out of 1000 points possible (600 for day, 400 for night), he scored 990. He got 590 for day and 400 (that would be perfect) for night. This was the best score in his unit and gets him the title of Top Gun for the unit! (YAY!!!) He also gets something he called arcom. On the phone (lots of background noise) it sounded like he said "aardvark". Therefore I have designated my son as the unit Top Gun Aardvark!! (I have no authority in this matter).
