We’re back online, having taken a few days off from the internet to volunteer for Military Appreciation Day -Year 8. I’ll have a report on that a little later after I sift through my photos and videos.
» Staples Says Gun Store Can’t Enter Contest
A small Nebraska gun shop has decided to buy its ink pens and post-it notes somewhere else after they said Staples rejected their entry into a marketing contest because they are in the firearms business.
the men received a rejection email:
“We’re sorry, but your small business entry into the Staples PUSH It Forward Contest has been rejected for the following reason(s): Entry contains content that promotes alcohol, illegal drugs, tobacco, firearms/weapons (or the use of any of the foregoing); promotes any activities that may appear unsafe or dangerous; promotes any particular political agenda or message; is obscene or offensive; or endorses any form of hate or hate group.”
… he was shocked that Staples considered their business to be on par with drug dealers and criminals …. “They lumped us in with criminals …”
From the comments:
I am boycotting Staples because they sell computers and computers are used in the child porn business, therefore Staples is an evil entity because they are contributing to child porn…..
Bloomberg put $12 million behind an ad buy pushing for tighter regulations. Bloomberg’s ads have run in 13 states and target both Democratic and Republican senators who Bloomberg apparently believes did not listen to their constituents during the gun votes.
The problem? The people Bloomberg is attacking have begun wearing his condemnation as a badge of honor.
The other day, we brought you a story about an Oregon military vet who took Joe Biden’s warning shot advice and ended up being charged with Unlawful Use of a Weapon, Menacing and Reckless Endangering. His AR-15 was confiscated as a result, and it won’t be returned unless the judge finds him not guilty.
Perhaps that vet should’ve taken some advice from this Ohio resident who was confronted with a similar incident. While the vet warned his intruder with a shot to the ground, this woman warned her intruder: “If you move, you’re gonna go to the morgue.”
Inflammatory? Uncalled for? Divisive?
When the truth clashes with the Progressive agenda, it is deemed as “uncalled for”, inflammatory and divisive rhetoric.
What Issa has done is called a spade a spade.
‘The Islamic terrorists who kill people have the silent support of many more in their community who share their ideology, if not their methods.
Syndicated columnist Diana West says the ultimate conclusion of her new book shocked even her.
“Americans have been betrayed … by our leaders going back to FDR’s administration in the 1930s because we were penetrated by Soviet agents to such an extent that our policies and, indeed I argue, our character as a nation was subverted,” she explained in an interview with The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas about her book, “American Betrayal: The Secret Assault on Our Nation’s Character.”
“I don’t believe we won World War II,” West added. “I believe that we were actually carrying out Soviet strategy due to this penetration.”
West says that though the United States helped defeat Hitler’s Germany, Joseph Stalin used the war to enlarge the boundaries of his Soviet empire by taking half of Europe.
Wars are often won by those who are willing to continue fighting longer than the enemy. After Hitler’s Axis was stomped and that war ended, the next war – the ‘Cold War’ began immediately. America and Britain’s leaders were far more tired of fighting than was Stalin and so, surrendered half of Europe. Gave it away to Stalin, to avoid fighting anymore – as though it was ours to give away.
Lesson learned? Probably not. We have several enemies right now that show signs of willingness to fight much longer than the majority of Americans.
And the next brick in the road to tyranny: A U.S. attorney in Tennessee says that posting comments critical of Islam on Facebook and other social media could violate civil rights laws.
Translation: The Feds are monitoring your Internet postings and will soon be targeting anyone who is anti-Islam, most of whom I’m guessing would be Christians and Jews.
Bill Killian, U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Tennessee, is planning to hold a meeting next week sponsored by a local Muslim group.
“anyone who is anti-Islam” ?
I reckon that would be me. Not sure what all the dear attorney’s definition entails, but I’m purdy dang sure I am what he would call someone who posts anti-islam comments.
“This is an educational effort with civil rights laws as they play into freedom of religion and exercising freedom of religion,” Killian told the Tullahoma News. “This is also to inform the public what federal laws are in effect and what the consequences are.”
And while I stand by anything I’ve ever said about islam I refuse to accept the accusation of civil rights violation – Federal law be damned.
He said that Facebook comments that insult Islam and violate civil rights laws are under federal jurisdiction. “That’s what everybody needs to understand,” he said.
As justification, he brought up a posting by a Tennessee official that showed a shotgun pointing at the camera with a caption that said, “How to wink at a Muslim.”
“If a Muslim had posted ‘How to Wink at a Christian,’ could you imagine what would have happened?” Killian said.
As a matter of fact, we can. Nothing would have happened, as always.
Because Islam is the Left’s partner of convenience in the destruction of Christianity and Judaism.
Let’s line up the facts here.
Islam is based on the Quaran (or however it’s spelled, I don’t give a crap), the Hadiths and pretty much whatever ole bat-crap crazy Mohammed said and did. There’s a whole bunch of stuff in that book about killing me and my family and taking all our possessions because we’re not muslim.
That’s not conjecture, it’s not second-hand hear-say, it’s fact. The muslim’s holey book tells them that it is their responsibility and duty as good little bump-heads to kill the infidel …. and I am the infidel.
So I reserve the RIGHT to assume that anyone who calls themselves a devout muslim is declaring intention to kill me or my loved ones.
Did you hear all the liberal knees jerking just then?
Bite me, Bill Killian.

~~ Hope n’ Change Cartoons : Whose Deal Is It?
In not terribly surprising news, it seems that Barack Hussein Obama made a devil’s bargain with Bill Clinton to trade electioneering favors to help put Hillary into the Whitehouse in 2016.
This despite that Barry has previously referred to Slick Willy as a “racist,” and Bill Clinton has referred to Obama as an amateur whose true calling should be serving coffee to his betters in a restaurant.

Toilet paper is hard to find in Venezuelan grocery stores, as are staple food items such as sugar, milk and cooking oil.
The socialist government says the shortages are part of a plot by opponents to destabilize the country. Economists
blame the government’s price and currency controls.

Why are even these basic staples rare in a country floating on a lake of precious oil, a country that if free would be luxuriously wealthy? Because under socialism, the only things that aren’t scarce are taxes, coercion, and misery.
Yet we shamble toward it, like idiot cows being led to a slaughterhouse.
A poll worker from 1998 until being fired this year, Richardson admitted she voted illegally in the 2008, 2011 and 2012 elections.
