You can blame Obama for gutting any actual counterterror action, leaving this guy with way too much free time and an open internet connection.

And let's face it Harry Reid's a BOSS, we might not like it but he is, he even rubbed the bitches nose in dog shit an demanded that Boehner sign off on it and pass it through the house with no Donk supprt.

So Reid is going to make Mitch and Boehner both eat shit.

70 Glanced through the articles I missed to catch up and saw Ace's take on quitting smoking.

I smoked two packs a day for 40 years and when I decided to quit, I tried Chantix. Not even my own prescription - just some leftovers from a friend.

The next morning after taking one of the pills, there was no desire for a cigarette. I finished a pack of cigarettes over a few days at a rate of 3 per day just out of habit of having one with coffee and after a meal, but there was never a "need" to smoke.

I'm sure this stuff doesn't work the same on everyone, but for me, it was the easiest thing I ever did.

Try it first.

75 Yeah, I thought it was pretty well understood that except for those at the very top, most federal executive branch people are somewhat independent of the administrations in which they serve. In other words, just because somebody was hired or promoted during a certain administration does NOT make him or her that administration's guy.

And if it needs to be said, if you polled ALL federal workers of their political affiliation, it would be overwhelmingly Democrat.

That being said, I haven't heard anything about the guy, other than that he was arrested for pedo charges. He could be a Tea Partier, I'm sure if he was we'll find out rather quickly.
But if he's a run-of-the-mill Democrat, with or without the Obama shrine in his cubicle, we'll never hear a word.

Snowmaggedon is heading my way from Atlanta, supposedly. Like there, they close schools here without one drop of precip even hitting the streets. Snow on the grass (roads clear)? 2 hour delay! I know it all likely stems from Litigation USA being what it is, but dang, when I was a kid in SW Ohio, we could have a real snowmaggedon on the streets and the best we could hope for was a 1 or 2 hour delay.

About six months after the election had a visit to the Interior Dept to finish up a process improvement study (no work with federal government since because this regime is not interested in saving money) and was shocked by the number of shrines to Duh Won. Also, they had a celebration of gayness display in the lobby. Really creepy seeing the shrines. Most of the staff in DC are there for a nice fat paycheck, don't work, and could care less about the country. The staff of each agency could be reduced 50 percent and they would not have an impact on their "mission."

Know what you mean. I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio and went to college in Athens, Ohio too. I understand there aren't snow plows here and few salt trucks but this is ridiculous. It wasn't like this in Atlanta 20 years ago. The city got excited about snowstorms and schools shutdown for small amounts but there had to be actual snow and ice, not just the possibility of some in the next day or two.

If we don't do it, we will be in decline, because the productivity of this country is dependent on young people that are equipped to be able to work hard...Immigrants create far more businesses than native-born Americans over the last 20 years.

There must be an army of clones, then. Drop into any local Walmart on EBT day, you'll see.

Somehow, I'll think pron will get a reprieve. Everybody likes their noody sites regardless of party. Besides, can you imagine this Admin sitting idly by as gay pron is restricted?

177 "Behold these words from Jeb Bush (Drudge).

Immigrants
are more fertile, and they love families and they have more intact
families.'

Obviously Jeb hasn't spent much time in South America but he is half right

Fertile and large families? Yes.

Intact
families? That is a joke, right?. Among the poor that are
the ones coming here, there are few formal marriages. Mothers
have kids from multiple fathers who usually aren't around and
contribute zero to raising the kids, if they are even aware they have
them.Children frequently are abandoned by neglectful parents to be
raised by relatives. Many of the people in the rural areas treat their
animals better than their kids. It is very common for a better off
families to take in orphans and raise them as their own. It makes the
crumbling families in our inner cities look like Ozzie and Harriett.

Sound harsh. Yes, but it is true. I'm sick of the Disney Movie Fantasy We Are The World version of reality always presented to us. It is destroying the country.

I just shoot paint in the laundry room :-) It's enclosed, and I can't convince myself to care more than that.
