Forced civil service anyone?

It’s back.

To require all persons in the United States between the ages of 18 and 42 to perform national service, either as a member of the uniformed services or in civilian service in furtherance of the national defense and homeland security, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, and for other purposes.

So the government wants to force us to serve 2 years in either uniformed or civilian service under the sole authority of the President. Who cares if you have a good job or are in college, etc? Under this bill, there would be no choice. If you are between the ages of 18 and 42, male or female, you would have to serve. Land of the “Free” my ass. What a bunch of slave driving hypocrites. How many of those same politicians or politician’s husbands skipped to Canada during the last draft? Now they feel they have the right to force others into service on their behalf.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with voluntary service. Forced service is the most evil thing on the planet. The Russians had forced service called conscription, the Germans did as well and it was also seen in the V-1 rocket factories. Mr. Obama and Congress take your brown shirts and go to hell.

As It Should Be

So Alan came across this how hippie are you quiz.

I scored exactly as I should have. WTF was up with your score Alan?

You are 0% hippie.
 

Ok, you conservative soul. Do you even believe in global warming? Loosen that necktie a little, and try some organic food. It actually does taste better. And go to a farmer’s market–they’re fun.

The wife scored the same as Alan though, that’s disturbing.

You are 5% hippie.

Mexican Prisoners Acted as Hitmen

Back in 2008 we were being informed that the source of 90% of the guns used in crimes in Mexico were being supplied from America and smuggled in to the country. These numbers were railed and the truth exposed about how the statistics were completely twisted. So when this came across my email today I was, needless to say, not terribly shocked.

Prisoners in a northern Mexico jail were allowed out at night to carry out murder-for-hire jobs using jail guards’ weapons and vehicles, officials said Sunday, revealing a level of corruption that is stunning even in a country where prison breakouts are common as guards look the other way.

So let me get this straight. Prisoners in jail for breaking the law were let out, supplied with weapons, vehicles, and clothing. Yet those guns were somehow magically supplied by American smugglers, NOT the Mexican government. Heaven forbid anyone actually look at what the problem really is. Evidently the media and other bigots think the only solution is to restrict the rights of honest, hard working law abiding citizens.

To Protect and Serve?

Warning, the video is long but well worth the watch.

Part 2.

Part 3.

The quick and dirty synopsis though is that an individual was shooting on the back of his property. A neighbor heard the shots and called the police. The officers responding over reacted, and proceeded to perform an illegal search of his house as well as locked containers within the house. After nothing was really found, they made up excuses for searching the premises and stretched for reasons for the arrest. They also confiscated his firearms. All the charges were dropped, however the sheriff’s office has returned all but 4 firearms. What is most interesting though is that those four firearms were mentioned by officers as wanting to keep for their own.

This officer had no clue of the situation or what going on. However before even arriving there he state he was going to be arresting someone for anything he could find. When nothing was immediately available they proceeded to perform an illegal search of the house. This was done under the guise of exigent circumstances. When they saw the safe, they extended the exigent circumstances to the interior of the safe. Then each officer proceeded to pick out which guns they like best after ripping the keys off of the victim to get into the safe.

The locked safe provides no basis for exigent circumstances. Securing the house I could somewhat believe, however all they were allowed to do during the exigent search was verify the house was empty. Upon finding the safe, if they wanted to search it a warrant must be obtained. There was no immediate threat to officers, and if probable cause existed that the safe contained evidence pertinent to the crime being investigated a warrant would be issued. Instead they conducted a search without consent and made up an excuse that a dying family member may have been contained in the safe. Never mind the fact that the safe was too small, or the fact there was no blood or any other evidence to support that fact.

This is obviously an abuse of this man’s civil rights. However this man who only was able to enlist the help of a public defender was railroaded by the system. The only hope is now that this is flying around the tubes someone will take the case and go after those officers for violating Title 18, U.S.C. Section 242. This is such a blatant and serious violation of civil rights and abuse of authority it is a mystery why those officers were not publicly dismissed. It is not surprising that this happened in Californistan, however this is still disturbing because it is completely unacceptable behavior.

Here is the contact information for the sheriff’s department.

The furthest from “green” one can possibly get

Uncle a while ago posted something about the Green Police Audi Super Bowl ad. I fell over laughing at the “Ford Earthfucker” statement and immediately wanted to add my trucks to the list. Phil was able to add his truck however all three of my rigs are work rigs and in the environment where I live, even not working they get a nice coat of dust. Well, today I was finally able to clean all three and set them up for a picture.

There is Earthfucker Sr. on the left. A 1997 F350 with a 460 under the hood, and gets me a whopping 11.5 MPG highway, around 9 towing anything serious. In the middle is Earthfucker lite. A 2008 Ford Explorer and gets around 20 mpg on the highway, with the hills around here though more like 18.5-19.5 depending on how I feel like driving. Lastly is Earthfucker Jr. A 2010 F350 Super Duty, with a 6.4 liter Powerstroke diesel and a manual transmission. That gets around 20 MPG highway, and can pull my boat up the Lewiston grade at 75 mph with room to keep going.

Many have given me crap about having three large working vehicles. However given the winters around here at times, I don’t want a small car. I want a vehicle that will get me from point A to B without letting me down. The previous Earthfucker lite performed remarkably when my wife walked away from a serious rollover after hitting black ice. We had a small car once during winter, never again. I might feel differently if I didn’t live in the middle of nowhere and have this strong desire towards self reliance. I spend a lot of time during winter helping pull people out and throw up flares at accidents. The large vehicles do not equal being able to fly around, it’s just the ground clearance, power, and weight helps if you’re patient and know how to drive in snow. I could drive a small car, but it’s not my skills I’m worried about, it’s the other people on the road. Especially college students, hence the bull killer on senior.

Comic Con vs Fred Felps

Protesting Comic Con is probably the most STUPID thing they could have done.
I hate Fred Phelps and his church of mental degenerates as much as the next person. So when I checked the roll this morning and saw that Comic Con responded with such snark and enthusiasm I couldn’t help but smile.

Quote of the Day – Thomas Paine

He that would make his own liberty secure, must guard even his enemy from opposition; for if he violates this duty he establishes a precedent that will reach himself.  ~Thomas Paine

[I decided on using this quote after hearing about some journalists wanting to shutdown Fox News. It's amazing how dumb and stupid people really are and their complete lack of ability to fully think ahead. What is to prevent the government from then turning around and shutting you up after they silence "your enemy?" The idiocy is mind boggling. When anyone's rights are violated, we are all violated. –B]

Keep Your Booger Finger off the Trigger

See what happens when you give cops a non-lethal weapon. They pull it when it’s completely unnecessary and then accidently discharge it into the man’s groin. Frankly, I think that officer should have the favor returned, especially since it was all over a supposed lack of insurance.
