Apparently there was construction going on, the article (CBS, New York) said there was a stop work order on the building. So maybe it isn’t terrorism. There are casualties unfortunately.
While getting ready for work this morning I was set off once again by one of my biggest pet peeves… I tapped a link to an article on Yahoo! off a blog I was reading and got their “Doorslam”, a full screen ad for their APP instead of the news article I wanted to read. I then searched for “I don’t want your app” and ran into a Tumblr constructed by someone just as pissed off at the practice as I am. (Warning, very NSFW language)

The spoiled brat in the White House has taken the UNPRECEDENTED step of releasing details of Israel’s nuclear program for no reason other than Israel having the temerity to re-elect a Prime Minister that will actually DEFEND HIS COUNTRY. Obama clearly believes there is some moral equivalence between Israel and a country that SPONSORS ISLAMIC TERRORISM ALL OVER THE WORLD having a nuclear program. Parents: SPANK YOUR CHILDREN. Don’t let them grow up to be Obama.
The entitled, over confident, out of touch Hillary Clinton, considered the inevitable Democrat nominee for President, who will do anything to win in her ambitious, polarizing, calculating and disingenuous campaign, has threatened reporters to not use pretty much most of the words in this sentence in a manner which represents the past of fascism.
I bet this post gets me on the first cattle car out of Ashland to the Hillary Fun Camp.

Earlier this morning the New York Times had reported that the pilot of the Germanwing Airbus that crashed Tuesday morning in Southern France had been locked out of the cockpit. Now French investigators are saying that the co-pilot deliberately crashed the airliner.
Just a matter of time before we either find out the co-pilot is either a deranged leftist or muslim scum, if history is any guide.
UPDATE1: Co-Pilot identified:
Co-pilot of crashed #Germanwings plane was Andreas Lubitz; religion unknown, prosecutor says
(I bet he’s a “Christian” just like Obama)
UPDATE2: The cockpit door has a 5 minute lockout that could be repeatedly re-engaged from inside preventing the door code from unlocking it from the outside.

All I want to do is provide content that you guys and gals are interested in, as well as an UNCENSORED discussion forum. I am still looking for any fellow Hot Air commentators who would like to be co-bloggers here so there are more stories posted and more content. I am humbled by the response so far considering this blog is less than a week old!
A pair of House lawmakers wants to completely repeal the Patriot Act and other legal provisions to dramatically rein in American spying.
Reps. Mark Pocan (D-Wis.) and Thomas Massie (R-Ky.) on Tuesday unveiled their Surveillance State Repeal Act, which would overhaul American spying powers unlike any other effort to reform the National Security Agency.
“This isn’t just tinkering around the edges,” Pocan said during a Capitol Hill briefing on the legislation. “This is a meaningful overhaul of the system, getting rid of essentially all parameters of the Patriot Act.”
The bill would completely repeal the Patriot Act, the sweeping national security law passed in the days after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as the 2008 FISA Amendments Act, another spying law that the NSA has used to justify collecting vast swaths of people’s communications through the Internet.
This, frankly shocks me. Not that Bergdahl is a deserter, this was pretty well established when the details about his “capture” came out after Obama’s disgraceful “trade” of millions of dollars and 5 senior Taliban Commanders from Guantanamo Bay, as well as a “Spike the football” Rose Garden ceremony with the muslim sympathizing Bergdahl parents. What shocks me is that the military would prosecute him KNOWING HOW BAD THIS WILL MAKE OBAMA LOOK!
There are only two possibilities here:
1. Obama knew he was a deserter yet did the deal anyway.
2. Obama didn’t bother finding out about the circumstances of his “capture” yet did the deal anyway.
Neither is the act of a RESPONSIBLE leader.

This bill would prohibit a government entity from compelling the production of or access to electronic communication information or electronic device information, as defined, without a search warrant or wiretap order, except for emergency situations, as defined. The bill would define a number of terms for those purposes, including, among others, “electronic communication information,” “service provider,” and “electronic device information.” The bill would require a search warrant for electronic communication information to encompass no more information than is necessary to achieve the objective of the search and would impose other conditions on the use of the search warrant or wiretap order and the information obtained, including retention and disclosure.
Law enforcement types are already whining that this will “undermine them”. Good. The Constitution was INTENDED to “undermine” law enforcement by requiring them to have a PRETTY DAMN GOOD REASON to violate the privacy and property of Citizen of the United States by having, um, SOME PROOF before doing it! It sucks to be law enforcement in a Constitutional Republic BY DESIGN.

One subject came up today, over at Hot Air that I wanted to comment on. The subject of CCW or concealed carry permits. Let me start by saying that I firmly believe in our Natural Right to keep AND BEAR arms. Which means our right to carry.
What I don’t agree with, and why I do not have a permit is that I don’t agree with the concept that I NEED A FUCKING PERMIT to exercise one of my God given rights. I see it as the thin end of the wedge issue. If I concede that I must BEG THE GOVERNMENT for permission to exercise my 2nd Amendment Rights it means I am acknowledging the government’s AUTHORITY to require permits for Constitutionally enumerated and PROTECTED liberty. With a FASCIST like Obama, it is a real possibility that requiring permits to, for example CALL HIM OUT AS A MULATTO BASTARD on the Internet is a real possibility.
This brings me to West Virginia. The new Republican majority in both houses of the legislature (first time in over 80 years) overwhelmingly passed a law that would have made West Virginia the latest state to adopt Constitutional Carry. Earl Ray Tomblin, who like Senator Joe Manchin PRETENDS to be a centrist but always ACTS LIKE A LIBERAL when it counts vetoed the legislation. Not only did he veto it, he did it like a pussy and waited until the legislative session was over so there could be no vote to override.
And I predict that it will cost him AND the DemocRAT Party the Governor’s Mansion in the very near future.
