ATF Fights Cigarette Smuggling by Smuggling Cigarettes! Don't Cops Have ...

Tea Party intelligence

So Tea Party member have more scientific knowledge than others.

That's apparently a surprise to the study's conductor.

I’ve got to confess, though, I found this result surprising. As I pushed the button to run the analysis on my computer, I fully expected I’d be shown a modest negative correlation between identifying with the Tea Party and science comprehension.
But then again, I don’t know a single person who identifies with the Tea Party.  All my impressions come from watching cable tv — & I don’t watch Fox News very often — and reading the “paper” (New York Times daily, plus a variety of politics-focused internet sites like Huffington Post & Politico).  
I’m a little embarrassed, but mainly I’m just glad that I no longer hold this particular mistaken view.

All it takes for a Tea Partier to excel over others is to understand the law of gravity, the law of supply and demand, that a 2% increase isn't a "cut" and that you should probably read a bill before you actually pass it.

Pretty hardcore type stuff.


Ed Schultz Attacks War Veteran: "Don't Call Me Sir!!" - October 17, 2013

What food stamps can buy for you.........

So you're indigent and hungry.

Fortunately for you, we have compassion and give you these things called food stamps to pay for something to eat. And to take away the stigma of being poor and indigent, we even give you a card that looks like a credit card.

But hey, there is nothing like salving that hunger pain like buying a big 'ole Red Bull.

Seriously. How disgusting is it that the Red Bull people are even advertising that their product is EBT eligible. They obviously know that idiots with EBT cards represent a significant market segment. Why else would they advertise this?

On another note. How much stimulation does a poor person need to sit on their ass?

When good guys have guns too................

Thomas Piccard.

Do you know who he is?

Why isn't the name Thomas Piccard plastered all over every news organization across the US.

Because, unlike every other spree killer in the US, this guy was confronted by good guys with guns.

As a result, people lived through his attack instead of being mowed down like a row of autumn corn stalks.

BTW, here's who Thomas Piccard is.................

One day before Thomas Piccard used an assault rifle and a handgun to pepper Wheeling's Federal Building with more than 20 rounds Wednesday, the retired Wheeling police officer told a neighbor he had been diagnosed with cancer.

Police Chief Shawn Schwertfeger identified 55-year-old Piccard as the man who opened fire on the Federal Building at 2:43 p.m. Wednesday, striking and shattering multiple windows before a responding city officer shot and killed him. A motive for the shooting remains unclear.

Robert Orgovan has lived across the street from Piccard at Presidential Estates in Bridgeport since Piccard moved into a mobile home there about a year ago. Orgovan first met him a few years ago, when Piccard was living at Booker T. Washington Apartment on Chapline Street in Wheeling.

I wonder how many times Piers Morgan has mentioned his name?

Conservatism - Saving liberals from themselves..........

I've said from the beginnings of this blog that I'm not a conservative for me, I'm a conservative for the least of us.

But don't take my word for it, take Tavis Smiiley's............

PBS host Tavis Smiley isn’t a thrill-up-his-leg cheerleader of President Obama — he’s criticized Obama in the past.

But in a chat with Sean Hannity, Smiley doesn’t hold back when asked if black Americans are doing better financially five years into the Obama presidency:

“Let me answer your question very forthrightly,” Smiley responds during Thursday’s show. “No, they are not. The data is going to indicate sadly that when the Obama administration is over, black people will have lost ground in every single leading economic indicator category. On that regard, the president ought to be held responsible.”
