    There were early reports, which the left blogs trumpeted as ‘proof’ of guilt. I’m sure the AP buried this final finding, which clears her.

  • CONCEALED CARRY: STOPPED BY A COP [Video only]

    Was just pulled over myself. I informed the officer right away that I had a permit and was carrying. He was fine, just asked me to keep my hands where he could see them. All was fine, no citation. He did ask if I was a lawyer because I handled it all well/clearly.

    However...I find the ‘why are you here’ question asked in the video to be highly disturbing.I think the answer given is the right answer, but I would agree that my initial response would be ‘none of your damned business.’

    I have had a skirmish or two with family members over politics and FB. We’ve gotten past them with a simple discussion about having strong opinions and moving on. Of course, I think they are idiots and they probably think the same of me. I can live with that.

    I read the transcript and thought it didn’t change the context at all. She’s so busy caring about the Americans that she didn’t bother to find out why the attacks happened...cause, you know, there could be more attacks, right? That makes a huge difference, right? That is, if you’re really concerned about protecting Americans. Otherwise, you’d just pull some bureaucratic CYA and...ohhhhh. Never mind.

  • 150th Anniversary of the Battle of Stones River (Murfreesboro, Tennessee)

    HGSW0904 to Timber Rattler

    We visited the Stones River site last winter (my daughter became a junior ranger of the Park, which she loved). I was just in awe as we walked Hell’s Half-Acre (a little scrap of ground just off the highway) and stood at the ridge looking down into the river where so many men died. I cannot imagine demanding a charge on a hill loaded with men and cannon...and I cannot imagine following the order to your death. It was chilling. The Slaughterpen was sobering as well (granite crags where Union soldiers were caught between 2 Confederate forces and slaughtered — the terrain is slippery and full of deep crevices and impossible to run on; my daughter and I did our best to walk it quickly, and even in calm conditions, concentrating, it was tricky).

    I highly recommend a trip there, if you have the opportunity. Many well-preserved and documented Civil War sites in middle Tennessee — and with an interesting perspective that I was certainly never taught in school.

    This kind of blows the lid off the left’s guise of ‘education’ being the basis behind sex ed. After all, if they were all about education, and they really believed a ‘fetus’ was just a ‘clump of cells’, you could discuss development and show ultrasounds all day long. If we had a news media that was actually free and ethical, this would be trumpeted. Instead, they’ll celebrate the right to murder.

    Apparently, Johnny was up in Northgate and got in between a friend of his and a 47 year old guy who were fighting because the old guy alleged Johnny’s friend uttered a racial slur against him. Johnny then (stupidly) offered a fake ID to the cops, and they found another in his wallet.

    Not exactly hardened criminal status, more like one of the gajillion 18-20 year olds with fake ID’s who got busted. Doesn’t make it right, but when people say ‘he has an arrest record’, I’m thinking he’s churning out crack out of mom’s basement and assaulting the elderly while robbing them at the walk-up ATM. He’s guilty of being a stupid kid with a non-functioning frontal lobe.

    Even if that’s true, the fact that this election is even somewhat close, given Obama’s failure and especially given recent events in Benghazi, is deplorable. It proves that the public education system is an absolute failure (critical thinking skills are clearly not engaged). It proves that the MSM has a strangle-hold on Americans’ minds and opinions. I resent sharing my air with these people.

    Romney is not ‘my guy’; I’ll be holding my nose as I vote for him. But after last night, I’ll be holding it a little more loosely. If nothing else, I was ecstatic to see a Republican actually fight back. Romney had some great zingers (my personal fave was when he said he had 5 boys, he’s used to people repeating the same thing over and over and trying to convince him that it’s true). When I compare it to the simpering of McCain during the last go-round — the difference is astonishing. I just wish he was an actual conservative.

    Working in someone else’s business is vastly different than running it, by yourself, as sole employees. And it seems you’re projecting; I hardly feel sorry myself, nor am I a victim. I’m captain of my fiscal fate (with the exception of the invisible hand of economy and the ridiculous decisions of the current president). I’d rather drive my own bus than ride someone else’s.

    With our own business, we certainly work a lot of hours — but there’s a difference between the hours we work and the hours lots of folks in the ‘regular’ world ‘work’.

    In the regular world, it seems like ‘work’ includes regularly checking Facebook and Twitter...multiple personal calls in an hour...BS-ing with the cubicle-dweller across the way...extended lunches. In other words, precious little ‘work’ is actually done in all of those hours. When you are working for yourself, however, how much work you do determines how well you live, and if your business (and therefore you) will survive.

    My father says that we reward the wrong things in this country. This is just another way that we reward poor work: by giving people something more to claim victim status on, when if the average worker was pinned on how much time they actually spend productively working, it’s not anywhere near even a standard 8 hour day.

    We have become a nation of whiners and victims — and they’re all going to be voting for the guy who’ll give them free stuff and make them feel warm and fuzzy.

  • Romney does not get national security briefings

    HGSW0904 to EBH

    According to Reuters, Obama had his first on Tues., Sept. 2 of 2008, with John McCain being prepared to do so. This article indicates Romney/intelligence are trying to work out logistics.

    This says, then, that Obama began receiving updates within 5 days of the end of the 2008 DNC. The RNC ended on the 4th, which means McCain would not have had time to begin briefing on the Sept. 4 byline of the Reuters statement.

    Given that the RNC closed this year Aug 30, the question has to be asked: what is taking so long that the national intelligence office isn’t getting the Republican candidate rolling? Romney’s been the presumed candidate for several months.

    This makes me so sad for him, his wife, his family. To have received Jesus, and through his ‘research’, forsake him — heartbreaking. How many people are lost because of their reliance on their wee little brains?

    I will never understand how people can assume that we can understand God — the Creator of all things, things we are just discovering, things that we still have no idea how they work — but we can understand Him, and decide that He doesn’t exist because He does not make sense when we ‘investigate’ and ‘research’ Him.

    If true, then people are more politically misinformed than I previously believed — which is hard to believe, since I believe most people have no idea what they’re talking about when it comes to government issues. They parrot what the people on the TV tell them...which is the case here, certainly, but to a ludicrous extent. W had such promise, and he went RiNO (which grates on me still), but — Jimmy Carter is still alive, and anybody who believes he was better than W wasn’t paying attention.

    HGSW0904 to Mrs.Z

    I’ve been thinking about that myself. I suggested to my husband that there ought to be 2 separate acts: a civil union for the godless, whoever they may be, and matrimony for those of us for whom marriage is a sacred union, to be performed only in churches. The government can do whatever they want with the civil unions, but the married couples are only under authority of the church. It would be most advantageous if government would stop using marital status for tax purposes, etc., but — since that’s not likely — a marriage would include the legal implications of a civil union, but a civil union would not include the religious and sacred implications of marriage. IMO, marriage should also carry a very strict and narrow divorce policy, whereas, with civil unions, they can pursue whatever lax policy they choose. I’m sure there are flaws in that proposition, but it seems like one sure way to protect actual marriage from being muddied by governmentally-administered unions.

    Figures lie and liars figure, right?

    But — spending is controlled by Congress. Yes, presidents sign off on bills and propose a budget, but the Congress reshapes and adds and twists. The pursestrings are not held by the Executive, but by the House Ways and Means Committee.

    Why do we always put spending under each president rather than the majority Congressional party?

    Then it would seem your definition of excellent and mine are pretty similar. Good for you and for your kids! I’m glad to hear something positive coming from public education. My niece (also public school educated) informed me recently that when she took the ACT, about half of the students didn’t know how to sign their names in cursive. So to hear a success story is refreshing. I’m guessing there was good support at your home, which can make a great deal of difference. I think most parents are completely tuned out to what goes on at school, and the school issues are far more complicated than just bad teachers. Red tape, political correctness, overwhelmed faculty, absent parents, illegal immigrants straining the system, and, yes, radical teachers imposing an agenda all contribute to a system that needs some serious help.

    My children were in the public system in Texas as well — one of the exemplary districts. I spent summers filling in the gaps of their education — things like knowing states and capitals, as they were never made to memorize them. Both of my kids were bored to tears — but I know that many parents were perfectly happy in the system.

    Beyond the absence of challenging curricula, I was also irritated by the lack of accountability for student behavior, lack of accountability for rotten teacher behavior, and over-emotional schtick in the classroom. I was taken aback to hear my child’s teacher tell the class how much she ‘loves’ them. No, you don’t. You care for your class, but when they walk out of there at the end of the year, they don’t hear from you again. That’s not love. It’s a lie to say that, and it’s ridiculous. In addition, kids were not allowed to say — no, I don’t want to play with you on the playground. Sorry, teachers, but there is still freedom of association in this country, and if my child does not want to play with the class paste-eater, that’s the way it is.

    Yes, there are problems outside the schools — lots of parents demanding things that have zip to do with academia. Parents are expecting schools to raise their children rather than educate them. There are children who have zero support at home to help with homework and they drag the class down, because heaven forbid schools should ‘level’ students according to ability. Someone’s feelings might get hurt. And then there are the kids who barely speak English — how do you teach a child who has no idea what is being said?

    In short: if your children received an excellent academic education in Texas public schools — I think that’s wonderful. But I also imagine that your definition of excellent and mine are wholly different. We pulled our kids from the public system; my 10 year old has almost completed pre-Algebra with 96%, and my 14 year old is wrapping up Algebra 2 (he is scoring in the upper 90%’s as well). It’s looking like he’ll be finished with high school at 16. If we were still in the system, they wouldn’t be excelling as they are — they’d have been held back and forced to a mold, and force-fed state emotional/societal crap like what to do if you get in a car with a drunk driver (this was a program my daughter was made to attend in 2nd grade), counseling propaganda about ‘bullying’ (while the school completely ignores actual bullying when presented evidence). Much happier out of that ‘exemplary’ system. Not sure what it was supposed to have been an example of — but to me, it was an example of all that’s wrong with American schools.

    What about soccer, which features the "head shot," in which the player uses his head to hit the ball? And don't forget baseball. Tony Conigliaro's death at the age of 45 was probably due, at least in part, to having been hit in the head by a bean ball. Heading a soccer ball doesn't feel great -- but I don't know that concussions are a regular occurrence in the sport (I don't know, I really don't follow soccer and haven't played since high school). Baseball? Head injuries are the exception, not the norm. One can hardly compare repeated crashing of the head into bodies and the ground as found in football to headers and the occasional wayward pitch or line drive. Sometimes #$%^&* happens. I played softball for years. Got clocked on the back of the head by a(I was a catcher) once or twice. I had a helmet (which I hated) so it was really not a big deal, but if I have some sort of damage to my head...I have some sort of damage to my head. I'm not going to sue the Girl's Softball Association over it. Football is a high-contact, dangerous sport. You make choices. And you live -- or die -- by them. I've got compassion for those affected by their decisions, but when you make a decision, you live with ALL of the consequences: good and bad, intended and unintended. That's the way life rolls.

    First — it’s very sad to hear of his death. He seemed like a good guy.

    Second — who thinks they can repeatedly hit their head on something(s) and come out ok afterward? Esp. when it happens for weeks on end, year after year. It does not take ‘studies’ to figure out that, gee, multiple concussions can’t be good for brain matter.

    So, on the one hand: lots of money, fame, etc. On the other, brain damage. I think NFL players picked their poison.

    HGSW0904 to Clintonfatigued

    We had a similar experience at an ‘exemplary’ public school in TX. A child in my son’s class was one of the mainstreamed kids — difficult to control. He would whack my son on the back of the head with his water bottle as he passed, or tackle him in gym and run away, etc. My son told the kid to stop...didn’t help. Told the teacher...the teacher said they needed to ‘work it out’. I talked to the principal. She actually told me that this kid was ‘one of her special friends’ and that he has a really crappy home life and that she could move my son to another class, but that’s really all she could do.

    Great. Punish my kid because your ‘special friend’ is out of control. So I went to the vice-principal (in charge of discipline) and I told him: you need to know that I’ve instructed my son to beat the hell out of this kid if he lays one finger on him again. To which the vice-principal replied: “Good. Somebody needs to.”

    I was speechless. Rather than take discipline into his own (state-sanctioned) hands, he’d rather have a ten-year-old kid pummel the ‘special friend’. Completely nutty system.

    And yes, we homeschool now. I don’t condemn anyone who chooses public school, but I would caution them to be very aware of what’s going on. My daughter, in 2nd grade, was subjected to a drinking and driving ‘special class’ over the course of several days. Material included what to do if you are in the car with a drunk driver (she was scared for weeks every time we got in a car that people on the road were drunk and going to run us off the road), and how to avoid drinking at parties. She was 7. I chewed the principal (the ‘special friend’ principal) and the teacher out, and was told that she must have misunderstood the lesson. Most of my friends with kids hadn’t even heard of the ‘lessons’ from their own kids til they asked. Then there was the teacher who sent my son to the principal because he argued with her that Clinton HAD been impeached (she informed the class that he hadn’t been - adamantly). So I printed out a wide variety of material and educated her the next day. No apology issued. And then there are the day-to-day dealings with completely out of control/unparented children. My daughter, again in second grade (it was an extremely formative year) asked if ‘f*&^’ was a bad word at the dinner table one evening. My husband nearly choked to death.

    It goes on and on — and this is in an extremely conservative district/area of TX.

    I always marvel at gun control advocates. In order to believe that gun control will prevent crimes, you have to believe that criminals will follow the law.

    IIRC, in-state status requires you to be a legal resident of the state for a year. How a legal resident of, say, Guatemala residing illegally in Texas establishes legal residency without following the law of this nation (become a citizen) is beyond me. A kid from Montana (natural born citizen) can’t get in-state tuition until he’s resided — legally — in the state for a year. But if you come from outside the country, no problem — and you’re heartless if you think otherwise. I’ve supported Perry up til that comment. I’d rather Perry than Romney, and if he gets the nomination, I’ll hold my nose and vote against Obama. But I’ll be wishing that an actual conservative would come along all the while.

    Were I to find myself in NYC this weekend, I think I’d find a way to visit the mosque...with a few packs of bacon and some drippings in can. And then I’d call it ‘freedom of speech’ and protest favoring one religion over another (favorite lib tactic) and I’m sure the MSM would make me a hero. Right?

    Still 75%/25%. Class warfare (and ignorance) is alive and well in this country. I was reading an article on this, and it mentioned that only .3% of earners will be affected, as if that makes it ok. If that’s the case, how ‘bout we tax Congress and the Executive (and the liberals in the Judicial) at 100%? It’s less than .3% of the population! So it must be ok, right??

    So, if you are aware of and recognize the statistics for violent crime, welfare dependence, children born out of wedlock, etc. and if you oppose illegal immigration, then you’re racist now?

    Color me racist, then. Getting really, really tired of this. Apparently, I’m also a ‘hater’ since I think it’s disgusting to mutilate a human body to accomodate mental illness (otherwise known as gender reassignment surgery in PC circles).

    Using liberal logic, then, there should be no laws against rape or murder, because that is ‘big government’ intrusion.

    The law isn’t about getting in your business. It’s about presenting the evidence that the feminists squelch: that this is not a collection of cells. It is not just a ‘fetus’. It is a human being, with a beating heart. Women should have to face exactly what it is they are doing instead of being allowed to comfort themselves with the delusion that the child is not ‘really’ alive.
