These days, Our Glorious President forces people to give up their eating utensils before he deigns to grace them with his presence.
However, not too long ago, Presidents rode in open-air cars and delivered 90-minute speeches after being shot at close range:

If our Presidents are any indication, this country has been on a downward slope for a very long time, but the [...]
Pissed off about the complete and utter Charlie Foxtrot that is Operation Fast and Furious / GunWalker / Gunrunner / etc.?
Think it is well past time for our politicians to step up, answer questions, and take responsibility for their actions, whatever they might be?
Well, this probably will not do anything to help either of those problems, but it might, and it costs you nothing (so long as you have a Twitter [...]

Or, as I have been saying on Twitter, why wuss out and vote for Romney when you could just man up, go all the way, and vote for Obama? The only difference between those two men is velocity; they are both headed to the same destination.
If you do not have any records of your military assets killing a man and dumping his body into the ocean, is he really dead, and did you really kill him?
Obviously the records, photographs, and other documentation for the purported hit are classified and will be kept under wraps for the next 50 years, but one has to wonder why. Sure, we do not want to release the identities of the individuals directly [...]
I like this cartoon… Y’know, it’s provocative!
(For the uninitiated, see below:
Rick Perry could not find his own ass with both hands, a map, and a flashlight… repeatedly.
Mitt Romney is a big-government-loving, gun-control-supporting, Obamacare-inspiring Obama-Light.
Herman Cain cannot handle a scandal – even a potentially fabricated one – if his future career depended on it (which it might), which makes me seriously doubt his ability to handle a country.
Michelle Bachmann is a certifiable loon.
Ron Paul never stopped [...]
There is a whole host of reasons that, despite being a Christian and despite graduating from one of their high schools, the Roman Catholic Church and I never particularly got along. Religions are kind of like that, though, which is why it is just as well there seems to be no shortage of them these days.
Of course, some of the more popular religions out there refuse to claim the title for political reasons, [...]
Well, there was going to be a post in this space… until Jennifer went and stole pretty much all of it.
So go over there and read it. Be that way.
We have already discussed the ludicrousness of requiring a muffler on cars but making putting one on a firearm illegal without the appropriate tithe to the federal government, and how that situation artificially inflates hearing protection equipment for firearm-owners, so we will not rehash the full details here. Instead, I will simply point you towards this petition to remove suppressors from the National Firearms Act, courtesy of Sean Sorrentino. Yeah, I know, you have to [...]
If it sounds this stupid when we, the people, say it, how it is any less stupid when the government – and, specifically, Our Glorious President – does it?
(And, yes, pictures/cartoons can count as quotes – that whole "thousand words" thing…)

It may take me a few moments to compose myself in order to adequately respond to this news, rather than just flail meaninglessly on the keyboard:
The Obama administration announced Thursday that it would suspend deportation proceedings against many illegal immigrants who pose no threat to national security or public safety.
White House and immigration officials said they would exercise “prosecutorial discretion” to focus enforcement efforts on cases involving criminals and people [...]
I firmly believe (and the evidence indicates) that the current economic situation, and credit downgrade, are the product of years’ and years’ worth of effort by short-sighted morons on all sides of the aisles, but this graphic was just too damned funny not to share:
The not-really-"progressives" of our country were all about blaming President Bush for things that happened "on his watch", regardless of whether or not he had any direct control [...]
I am a bit late on writing about this (Better Half was headed out of the country way-too-early this morning, so I had better things to do than blog yesterday), but it is just too good to pass up.
Over the weekend, the news leaked out that Our Glorious President was considering finally following through on those promises of enhanced "gun control" he made back during his election campaign:
The changes will include:
… Well, ok, almost without comment: those price increases are directly due to the federal government wantonly printing money at an amazing rate, all in the name of "quantitative easing", which has the entirely predictable and arguably planned-for result of devaluing the American dollar. The simpler explanation is that goods are not getting more expensive; the dollar is simply worth less.

I have tried for over two weeks now, but I simply cannot find the words to adequately address this news report:
If Bill Clinton had his way, there would be an Internet agency created by the U.S. government or United Nations to debunk malicious rumors that originate and spread online.
“Somebody needs to be doing it, and maybe it’s a worthy expenditure of taxpayer money,” he said. “But if it’s a government agency [...]
As you have no doubt heard in the news by now, Osama Bin Laden is dead. Time for me to do the inevitable and weigh in on the particulars…
1. Bravo Zulu to the SEAL Team responsible for this operation, to the pilots and airmen who landed and extracted them, and to whomever else assisted in this success. Those men and women, even though we will probably never know their names, are the real [...]
