That means, 74% of Americans are racist, according to obama and his regime! And 60% of democrats believe voter i. d. should be required to vote. So according to obama and his regime, over half of the party they belong to are racists.
A new Washington Post poll shows a whopping 74 percent of Americans believe photo identification should be required to cast a ballot in U.S. elections.
Q: In your view, should voters in the United States be required to show official, government-issued photo identification — such as a driver?s license — when they cast ballots on Election Day, or shouldn’t they have to do this?
FROM A RETIRED VIETNAM VETERAN:
Wearing a Viet Nam Vet hat to Wal-Mart
A few days ago my best friend from high school sent me a ‘Viet Nam Veteran’ cap. I never had one of these before, and I was pretty hyped about it, especially because my friend was considerate enough to take the time to give it to me.
Yesterday, I wore it when I went to Walmart. There was nothing in particular that I needed at the world’s largest retailer; but, since I retired, trips to Wally World to look at the ignorant Wal-Martians is always good for some comic relief. Besides, I always feel pretty normal after seeing some of the people that frequent the establishment. But, I digress … enough of my psychological fixations.
While standing in line to check out, the guy in front of me, probably in his early thirties, asked, “Are you a Viet Nam Vet?”
“No,” I replied.
“Then why are you wearing that cap?”
“Because I couldn’t find the one from the War of 1812.” I thought it was a snappy retort.
“The War of 1812, huh?” the Wal-Martian queried, “When was that?”
Lord forgive me, but I couldn’t pass up such an opportunity. “1936,” I answered as straight-faced as possible.
He pondered my response for a moment and responded, “Why do they call it the War of 1812 if it was in 1936?”
“It was a Black Op. No one is supposed to know about it.” This was beginning to be way fun!
“Dude! Really?” he exclaimed. “How did you get to do something that COOOOL?”
I glanced furtively around me for effect, leaned toward the guy and in a low voice said, “I’m not sure. I was the only Caucasian on the mission.”
“Dude,” he was really getting excited about what he was hearing, “that is seriously awesome! But, didn’t you kind of stand out?”
“Not really. The other guys were wearing white camouflage.”
The moron nodded knowingly.
“Listen man,” I said in a very serious tone, “You can’t tell anyone about this. It’s still ‘top secret’ and I shouldn’t have said anything.”
“Oh yeah?” he gave me the ‘don’t threaten me look.’”Like, what’s gonna happen if I do?”
With a really hard look I said, “You have a family don’t you? We wouldn’t want anything to happen to them, would we?”
The guy gulped, left his basket where it was and fled through the door. By this time the lady behind me was about to have a heart attack she was laughing so hard. I just grinned at her.
After checking out and going to the parking lot I saw Dimwit leaning in a car window talking to a young woman. Upon catching sight of me he started pointing excitedly in my direction.
Giving him another ‘deadly’ serious look, I made the ‘I see you’ gesture. He turned kind of pale, jumped in the car and sped out of the parking lot.
What a great time … tomorrow I’m going back with my Homeland Security cap … whoever said retirement is boring just needs the right kind of Cap!
After posting this image on Twitter over the weekend a liberal replied with the now trite logic that Obama has a strong “gutsy” foreign policy because he killed Osama bin Laden (he waffled before it was “gutsy,” and he didn’t personally execute the raid)
The argument that ensued (and ended, as they usually do, with the liberal blocking me) inspired this piece.

Newt Gingrich wipes the floor with CNN’s Pierce Morgan
This is Newt Gingrich at his best. He doesn’t have to raise his voice. He doesn’t get lost in the weeds. He just makes a sensible, articulate, hard-hitting argument with no hesitation, and he does it all with flair!
here’s the video:
The Montgomery County (Texas) Sheriff’s Office had a big day planned. After becoming the first department in the country with its own aerial drone ($300,000!), they were ready for a nice photo op. And then the drone crashed into a SWAT team.
The Examiner reports a painfully contrived police action-athon:
As the sheriff’s SWAT team suited up with lots of firepower and their armored vehicle known as the “Bearcat,” a prototype drone from Vanguard Defense Industries took off for pictures of all the police action. It was basically a photo opportunity, according to those in attendance.
“Lots of firepower” and a “Bearcat” sure sounds like a good photo op. OK, time to launch the $300,000 drone. Here we go. Launch the drone:
“[The] prototype drone was flying about 18-feet off the ground when it lost contact with the controller’s console on the ground. It’s designed to go into an auto shutdown mode…but when it was coming down the drone crashed into the SWAT team’s armored vehicle.”
Not only did the drone fail, and not only did it crash, it literally crashed into the police. It’s no wonder we’re not able to find a video of this spectacular publicity failure. Luckily, the SWAT boys were safe in their Bearcat.
This would be a fine one-off blooper story if it weren’t for some upsetting implications. This is exactly why we have reason to raise multiple eyebrows at Congress, which wants to allow hundreds of similar drones to fly over US airspace. These drones are still a relatively young technology, relatively unproven, and relatively crash-prone. The odds of being hit by one are low, of course, but should a Texas-style UAV plummet ever happen in, say, a dense urban area, nobody would be laughing. Not all of us are driving around in Bearcats.
Now this is from someone on the left, obviously. And I am sure the conservative base of the republican party (and of course the moneyed liberals) would decry this. But I am thinking it could be a template for the future. Really, does one need to earn or make or get over (insert your figure here).
Last Wednesday, Gawker took time out of reporting on Ryan Lochte’s urinary habits and the health consequences of video game marathons to run an article by Hamilton Nolan suggesting that there should be a maximum income.
Nolan’s argument essentially boils down to the idea that $5 million is “enough,” especially since it can provide $250,000 a year just on interest if invested conservatively. He asks how the slickest PR Firm in the world can explain how a person deserves more than $5 million a year consider the plight of the poor. I’m no slick PR Firm, but I’ll give it a shot.
Rich people aren’t rich because poor people are poor. Rich people are largely rich because they helped make fewer people poor. In a market economy, people are paid the value they add to their firm. If they are paid more than that, then the firm loses money by keeping them on. If they are paid less than that, another company will offer an amount between what they are paid and the value they add. People who make more than $5 million a year do so because they add more than $5 million a year in value to their firm. At the end of the day, people who make more than $5 million a year are creating more value than that for customers.
There are reasons why the pay of a few Americans may be unjustly high. The most obvious reason is crony capitalism, which allows people to profit not by serving customers in the market, but by forming a cozy relationship with the government. Lobbying to have regulations which will cripple your competitors may be profitable, but it isn’t a component of the free market. Most lobbyists add more value in government favoritism to their firms than they are paid, but that value is not passed on to consumers. This demonstrates that some income stratification is the result of too much, not too little, government.
Biggest ever Burmese python caught in Florida Everglades (and it was pregnant with record 87 eggs)
The biggest Burmese python ever caught in Florida — 17 feet, 7 inches (5.18 metres) long and 164 1/2 pounds (74.4 kilograms) — was found in Everglades National Park, the University of Florida announced Monday.
The snake was pregnant with 87 eggs, also said to be a record. Scientists said the python’s stats show just how pervasive the invasive snakes, which are native to Southeast Asia, have become in South Florida.

A former Obama administration trade adviser accused of plotting to purchase $10 million in gold from a Congolese warlord refused to detail his role in the illegal plot, invoking the Fifth Amendment more than 100 times during confidential court testimony, according to documents obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.
President Obama tapped oil mogul Kase Lawal, a prolific Democratic bundler and Clinton family confidante, to serve as a member of the White House’s Advisory Committee for Trade Policy and Negotiations in 2010. Lawal’s name no longer appears on the website.
Soon after his appointment, court documents allege, Lawal became entangled in a plot to purchase nearly 2,500 pounds of Congolese gold from Gen. Bosco Ntaganda, a rebel commander who has been linked by the International Criminal Court to ethnic massacres and rapes.
The charges raised red flags among D.C. foreign policy observers, who questioned why the White House would associate with such a controversial figure.
Lawal is a prolific donor to both the Democratic National Committee and the Obama campaign, according to public records in which he lists himself as the chairman and CEO of CAMAC International. He donated $35,800 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2011 and $30,800 to the DNC. Additionally, Lawal has donated varying amounts to several Democratic Congressional campaigns.

When will obama and his regime learn, if too risky for the private sector, it is also too damn risky for the public sector (our tax dollars pissed away yet again)?
(CNSNews.com) – The Department of Energy announced the distribution of $43 million in funding for the development of energy storage technology that is “too risky for private-sector investment.”
The Aug. 2 press release said the recipients were chosen through two programs of DOE’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy – the Advanced Management and Protection of Energy Storage Devices (AMPED) and Small Business Innovation Research (STTR).
“ARPA-E was launched in 2009 to seek out transformational, breakthrough technologies that are too risky for private-sector investment but have the potential to translate science into quantum leaps in energy technology, form the foundation for entirely new industries, and have large commercial impacts,” the press release said.
It states that AMPED and STTR funds projects that “focus on innovations in battery management and storage to advance electric vehicle technologies, help improve the efficiency and reliability of the electrical grid and provide important energy security benefits to America’s armed forces.”
The ugliest shoe ever founded by a delusional drunk! Doesn’t say, but odds he is an obamabot.
Today in drunken celeb busts, George Boedecker, the 51-year-old co-founder of Crocs, was arrested Saturday after he was discovered “drunk as crap” and passed out behind the wheel of his Porsche in Boulder, CO.
When questioned by Officer Patrick Vest, Boedecker said his girlfriend had been driving – ”a really f**king famous [singer]” – then asked Vest whether he ”knew who Taylor Swift was.”
Vest asked Boedecker where Swift had disappeared. Boedecker gestured toward a neighboring yard and answered “Nashville.” Boedecker then referred to his imaginary girlfriend as “batshit crazy,” declared the police his ”enemies for life,” and promised to take their badges.
Worth noting: Boedecker was wearing flip flops.
“Since when does serving up junk food give someone a license to preach?” carped Petula Dvorak as she opened her August 14 piece, “Now featuring filet o’ fracas.”*
(Gee, I dunno, Petula, maybe 1791, when the First Amendment — you know, that pesky little document that guarantees freedom of speech and religion among other things — was ratified.)
”We’ve got the Papa John’s pizza guys weighing in on the health-care debate, while the burger slingers out West at In-N-Out can’t serve up a cheeseburger without a Bible verse,” Dvorak carped. Later in her Metro section column, she essentially compared the pizza chain to drug-running terrorists.” Read more Liberal lunacy: here
This is so typical of the Liberal mind. So dangerous that it should be classified as a ‘serious contagion’. The next step would be to get these people confined and treated – perhaps 8 hr days of Rush Limbaugh and Ronald Reagan, for starters.
Americans, making a living selling food to consumers are “terrorist” to Liberals. And ‘mohammad forbid’, that these nonconforming people make the gargantuan mistake of speaking their mind and not perpetuating ‘political correctness’, demanded by people like Dvorak. That’s a crime, possibly requiring containment at Guantanamo Bay with a little water-boarding thrown in for good measure.
This is insanity, propagated by the insane of the Left. Long gone is any rationale or civility. Once a Liberal deems something perverse or politically incorrect, like “fast food” and moral standards, you’re on the ‘enemy list’ and to be silenced.
