Understand this: no crime was committed. Yet:
Police seized the recently purchased firearms, as well as another .45-caliber Heckler & Koch handgun and a 12-gauge shotgun. Police are holding the weapons for safekeeping, but no criminal charges have been filed.Emphasis mine.
So: for the "crime" of legally buying weapons after hollering at his boss, this guy has been arrested and had his legally obtained firearms confiscated by the police. No charges have been filed and the man in question is forced to be "mentally evaluated" at a hospital.
And you think we live in a free country?

Sean Penn does not understand the concept of freedom of expression. He wants people who call Hugo Chavez a dictator to be put in jail.
Here Sean Penn displays the hatred communists have for those who disagree with them:
"Every day, this elected leader is called a dictator here, and we just accept it, and accept it" said Penn, winner of two Best Actor Academy Awards. "And this is mainstream media, who should -- truly, there should be a bar by which one goes to prison for these kinds of lies."Emphasis mine.
It was just the beginning of a busy weekend for Penn. When asked on CBS' "Sunday Morning" about those who question his motives for his humanitarian work in Haiti, he said:
"Do I hope that those people die screaming of rectal cancer? Yeah. You know, but I'm not going to spend a lot of energy on it."
If Sean Penn loves Hugo Chavez so damn much, why doesn't that useless fuckwit move to Venezuela?

The liberal media are aghast: young voters no longer like Obama. They're not supposed to think about it; they're supposed to uncritically support the Democrats! (You know, the way the media people do.)
"This year only 35 percent of young Democratic voters say they'll turn out in November." That's because the youngsters don't care as much about voting as their elders do.

Obama gave himself a "B" but 63% of the American people give him an "F".
"F" is short for FAIL. It's why the system goes "A", "B", "C", "D"...and jumps to "F" instead of going to "E".
In 2000, the buzzword was "gravitas". George W. Bush didn't have it; he'd been governor of the second-largest state for a couple of terms but that didn't match to Al Gore being VP for eight years. (Everyone knows that occupying a largely ceremonial federal office for eight years confers a lot more experience than actually being the man in charge of a large state.) George W. Bush was not qualified for the Presidency because he had no experience in federal government.
In 2008, the issue of "gravitas" was completely ignored by the media. This issue which had been of critical importance eight years earlier simply did not matter in 2008. Obama's complete lack of executive experience, his dearth of federal-level experience--having been a US Senator for less than two years--these things didn't matter, they didn't mean Obama was unqualified for the Presidency. Besides, Obama had plenty of executive experience: he was running his campaign, wasn't he?
How's that "hope and change" working out for ya?

Before the accelerator problem, before the brake problem, Toyota had the problem with rusty Tundra frames.

Naturally Illinois is one of the 14 states which is not considering a measure to allow residents to opt out of ObamaCare. *sigh*
You guys really want me to move back to Iowa, don't you?

I've gotten this spam e-mail three times now. Maybe the spam filter at my ISP forgot I identified the first instance as spam:
Dear Counsel,Okay, first: I AM NOT A LAWYER and neither is my first name "Counsel".
My name is Ms AKEMI KOBAYASHI. I was married to my ex husband Newberg KOBAYASHI (who lives in your jurisdiction)for 7 yrs and in July 2009, We mutually agreed under a Collaborative Participation Law Agreement to go our separate ways. Newberg had agreed to pay me $914,000.00 under terms of the agreement so that I can settle down and to his credit; he has paid me $104,000.00 but with an outstanding balance of $810,000.00.I am hereby seeking your legal assistance in collecting the balance or helping me enforce the agreement, and have him honor the agreement inentirety.
I will be providing further information upon your request. I believe that one of the reasons he has refused to pay is because I have re-married. I understand that been remarried does not automatically void the agreement. Prior to our separation due to irreconcilable differences, we were married for 23yrs of which by his instruction, I was a full time house wife to carter for our four children. Please get back to me if this is a case you can undertake. Let me know if you require consultation fee before you advice or look at the evidence, I am hereby seeking your firm to assist in collecting. the balance from him. He has agreed already to pay me the balance but it is my belief that a Law firm like yours is needed to help me collect payment from my ex-husband or litigate this matter if he fails to pay as promised.
If you are unable to take this case, please be so kind as to refer me to a reputable law firm or individual practitioner that I will be able to work with.
Second: "Newberg"? "Newberg Kobayashi"? That takes the cake for unique names, let me tell you.
Third: if you really need a lawyer in my "jurisdiction" why don't you, I don't know, look in the freaking yellow pages? There are all sorts of ways one can find a lawyer in any part of the country, and all you need to do is actually to look for one. You can't hardly throw a small, yappy dog without hitting a lawyer these days.
Someone buy Ms. Kobayashi a chihuahua and tell her to stop spamming my e-mail account.
