Disgusting

This sums up what is wrong with Congress, especially the Democrat-Socialists (but the Republicans have their moments too):

“Some of the same Democratic senators who refused to join in a 2007 vote of confidence for Gen. David Petraeus switched gears on Tuesday and voted to confirm him as President Obama’s choice to lead the Afghanistan war effort. “

So the D-S-ers who where against him are no for him, all based on having to save the political back said of Dear Leader.”  They are all liars and hypoctites.

The longer the oil leak goes on and the more inept and incompetent our government acts the more angry I get. 

If the Coast Guard was so worried about safety, why not simply take a big pile of life preservers and fire extinguishers out to these craft and hand them around, so that the skimmers could keep at their essential job?

But that is not the way government operates. At least not this government, which has created a perfect storm of bureaucratic and regulatory gridlock around the Deep-water Horizon disaster. Whatever is done to prevent the oil from coming ashore must be approved by the EPA, OSHA, the Army Corps of Engineers, the Coast Guard, and a host of lesser bureaucracies.

I am not above using some of that oil to make tar and some of the feathers from the birds that die on the beach waiting for some Federally approved bird-washer to come back from their union-mandated breaks and get up a good old fashion tar and feathering for any federal bureaucrat from ObamaWorld.

As the say, read the whole thing.

Do you like the idea of a Supreme Court Justice who would ban books she doesn’t like? 

As solicitor general of the United States, Elena Kagan argued in front of the Supreme Court that the federal government had the constitutional authority to ban certain political pamphlets. She also strongly implied that some political books, if they were partisan enough, could also be censored. 

So where is the reporting?  Oh silly me.  Journolist has already decided that Kagan is a socialist and therefore good.

This looks like it would be a lot of fun!

The Terrafugia Transition, a light aircraft that can convert into a road-legal automobile, is to go into production after being given a special weight exemption by the US Federal Aviation Administration.

Where can I get one?

Vick’s At It Again

Michael Vick is incorrigable.  Of course he is a darling of the National Felon Football  League and believes that he is above the law.

The good news for Michael Vick this afternoon might be that the Virginia Beach police say he is “of no interest to us” as they investigate a shooting that occurred early yesterday morning outside a restaurant where Vick reportedly had been celebrating his 30th birthday.

However, given the stringent protocols of Vick’s reinstatement to football last year by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, it might not be a great thing for the Eagles backup quarterback that a man identified by Virginia Beach General Hospital as Quanis Phillips, one of Vick’s 2007 dogfighting codefendants, suffered a nonlifethreatening wound in the incident. Vick is not supposed to associate with anyone from his dogfighting days, after serving more than a year and a half in prison and being released on probation before his reinstatement last year.

I will not be breaking my boycott of the NFL anytime soon.

It’s backhanded but he definitely thinks the only what to stop Gulff leak is to impode the well.

 “You can basically put in a huge amount of explosives down there. . . but what else would you do that might upset the eco-structure of the Gulf?” If you get to the right depth, and set up the blast below an impervious layer of rock, you choke off the wellhead and keep the fallout from reaching the ocean floor. Now, I am obviously not a nuclear engineer and I haven’t seen the stratigraphy down there, so I don’t know if all the technical pieces of the puzzle fit (do we have a credible delivery vehicle etc.).

The whole post is worth a read Daniel Foster is worth a read

Breaking news:

The Supreme Court ruled Monday that the Constitution’s “right to keep and bear arms” applies nationwide as a restraint on the ability of the federal, state and local governments to substantially limit its reach.

Of course, this being the Washington Post, the story had to spin something to give the gun-grabbers hope:

In doing so, the justices, by a narrow 5-4 margin, signaled that less severe restrictions could survive legal challenges.

Nevertheless, the plain truth is that the Second Amendment means what it says and it applied to gun-grabbing mayors as much as it does the Feds.

Justice Samuel Alito, writing for the court, said the Second Amendment right “applies equally to the federal government and the states.”

Just as a reminder, elections matter.  This was a 5-4 split.  Two appointments from “Dear Leader” crammed through the Senate by the Democrat-Socialist Party and it would have gone the other way.
