    As unlikely as it may seem, we have learned over the years (the last few in particular) that there are indeed some lawmakers who are mind-blowingly stupid. There are also those who have been in Congress for so long that diapers may be in order, if they are not utilizing them already. Some I believe are simply intellectually indolent and don’t keep themselves informed. It’s just a job to them – a job they can become quite wealthy doing but don’t feel compelled to do particularly well.

    Fisher House Foundation has stepped in and offered an advance grant to families of the fallen during the government shutdown, “to ensure there is no funding gap during the most difficult of times, with the understanding that reimbursements would be made at an appropriate time.” The Pentagon has said it cannot pay death benefits to families of troops killed in Afghanistan. ... Fisher House is a charity established to help troops and families in need.

    "Generally, dereliction of duty refers to failure through negligence or obstinacy to perform one’s legal or moral duty to a reasonable expectation. In other words, it means willful or negligent failure to perform assigned duties or performing them in a culpably inefficient manner. Dereliction of duty is a specific offense in military law. " (Quote from USLegal.com). Dereliction of duty is an Impeachable Offense, as stipulated in the US Constitution. Dereliction of duty is also a US Military offense subject to a Courts Martial.

    Pennsylvania's AG Might Not Even Defend Their Gay Marriage Ban in Court Facing a lawsuit from the ACLU, it looks like Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane is going to refuse to defend the state government's ban on gay marriage. Pennsylvania, the only state in the northeast without provisions for same-sex civil unions or marriages, was one of the first states with gay marriage bans targeted by a suit in the wake of the Supreme Court's partial striking of the Defense of Marriage Act. If it's true, the news, reported by the Philadelphia Daily News, based on multiple anonymous sources, isn't...

    Pick a scandal, any scandal. Don't like any of the current scandals? Don't worry, just like a city bus, there will be a new one along in ten minutes or so. But, why now? It's not as if the administration suddenly became corrupt. How is it a whole slew of scandals involving the Obama administration hit all at once? You certainly can't thank the vertebrae challenged republicans for it. Remember Fast n Furious which quietly faded into oblivion? Darrell Issa isn't strong enough. Now we've got the administration spying on journalists, using the IRS to harass innocent Americans who happen...

    And by executive decree, President Obama officially flings open our borders. He steadfastly refuses to uphold his oath to faithfully execute the Office of President, and to preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States. Instead he ignores the constitution, ignores the laws he chooses, and refuses to secure our nation or secure our borders. He now proudly announces to the world and even advertises in Spanish in Mexico that Mexicans illegally crossing the U.S. border will not be apprehended once they're safely away from the border and, in fact, are then free to apply for foodstamps and...

    Richard Lynch was walking down the hall in BP’s crisis command center in early May when some engineers rushed up, bearing bad news. “We’ve lost the cofferdam,” they said. In fact the cofferdam, a 100-ton, four-story-high steel dome that the company had lowered to try to contain the flow of oil from its out-of-control well, had become clogged with icelike crystals and was rising in the water, full of flammable gas and oil. “I said: ‘What the hell do you mean you’ve lost the cofferdam? How did you lose it? Don’t give me that!’ ” Mr. Lynch, a BP vice...

    Snip... Echoing comments by President Barack Obama and others in the administration, Morton said that Arizona's new law targeting illegal immigration is not "good government." The law makes it a crime to be in the state illegally and requires police to check suspects for immigration paperwork. Morton said his agency will not necessarily process illegal immigrants referred to them by Arizona officials. The best way to reduce illegal immigration is through a comprehensive federal approach, not a patchwork of state laws, he said. "I don't think the Arizona law, or laws like it, are the solution," Morton said.

    I'm prepared to give New Orleans Mayor Nagin the benefit of the doubt on the school bus unavailability.In the June 9 2005 Orleans Parish School Board meeting minutes - posted elsewhere on FR in another thread - it's clear that the Board was not providing Nagin with any support whatsoever on making the buses available in an evac (let alone drivers).And since this very discussion had been ongoing for at least a year (again evidenced in the minutes), I presume they hadn't signed-off on it by Aug 27th either.In addition, the Orleans Parish Schools had been under management by a...

    New York Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) has long been rumored as desperately seeking the democratic nomination for president in 2008. And while many political observers fully expect the power hungry former First Lady to hit the campaign trail within only a few months of being re-elected as a US Senator in 2006, US News & World report claims to have a confirmation of sorts.

    Four months after the 9/11 commission’s report on intelligence failures leading up to the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, a shakeup at the Central Intelligence Agency is underway. Resignations are piling up throughout the intelligence community—but not at the Federal Bureau of Investigation, which had its own counterterrorism mishaps before Sept. 11, according to the commission report. The C.I.A. dismantles threats overseas; the F.B.I. works inside the U.S. That rough division of labor places the responsibility for keeping the 19 hijackers from boarding planes on Sept. 11 squarely in the F.B.I.’s hands.

    DERELICTION OF DUTY Many Americans are blaming President Bush for the tragedy of 911 and Osama bin Laden. In reading the book, "Dereliction of Duty," by Lt. Col. Robert "Buzz" Patterson USAF (Ret.) Carrier of the "Nuclear football," many parallels can be drawn comparing President Clinton’s past administration, and one Senator John Kerry promises to install if he is elected. As you read the circumstances and warnings, merely adjust the time-table forward and the possibilities become frighteningly obvious. Sandy Berger’s involvement, given his current situation, is also fascinating. The following is a review of some of the most hair-raising and...

    ST. LOUIS - A defrocked Roman Catholic priest was convicted Thursday of exposing himself to three boys while serving as an elementary school counselor. James Beine, 61, was found guilty of four felony counts of sexual misconduct involving a child. Jurors recommended four years in prison on each count; sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 28. Beine earlier this month was sentenced to four years and nine months in federal prison on charges he possessed child pornography. Beine was dismissed from the priesthood in 1977. In the mid-1990s, the Archdiocese of St. Louis paid $110,000 to settle two lawsuits that alleged...

Robert "Buzz" Patterson, USAF [Ret.] Normally there's little to be gained from living in the past, but if you live in rattlesnake country you'd best never forget their dangerous habits. Snakes don't love or hate; they are indifferent to the hurt they can inflict on us. We study them, and learn to recognize their hiding places and the noises they make just before they strike. If we're bitten we know there are antidotes to lessen the damage, but they can kill. The very old, the very young, and the weak are...

    I just read the book "Dereliction of Duty" by Lt. Col. Buzz Patterson, who served as President Clinton's military aide. In his book, Col. Patterson tells the story of the CIA having Osama bin Laden in its crosshairs and how this opportunity to get rid of him got away because Clinton did not want to be bothered during a golf game. This missed opportunity later gave us the tragedy of 9/11. The book shows in detail just how both Bill and Hillary Clinton hated the military. During the Clinton administration, the military suffered from lack of funding, personnel, and equipment....
