Associated Press headline:
1) PETA Seeks Memorials to Cows Killed on Illinois Roads
I like that…a Memorial to cows killed on the nations highways. We can have cookouts with big, juicy, beefy hamburgers, Oscar-Mayer All Beef Hotdogs, and tons of fixin’s!!
From International News
2) France makes it harder to become French
New immigration requirements as of Jan 1, 2012, require tough language tests and allegiance to *French Values*
Oh really…like what? Proper etiquette when White-Flag waving?
And from our French-Speaking neighbors to the North:
3) Vancouver health authority begins its free crack pipe program for addicts
I kid you not. Free Crack pipes. Their reasoning is that if they give out heat-resistant oven-quality glass pipes, there will be less accidental glass-pipe shattering which will result in less facial lacerations, so that when the stoners get all cranked up and start engaging in adult recreational activities, there are less open cuts with which to transmit HIV and Hepatitis.
Speaking French must really have a dampening effect on IQ scores….
This is what happens when someone tries to do the right thing…
*City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr., D-Queens, chairman of the Public Safety Committee, personally asked Cyrus Vance Jr.’s office not to push for the 3 1/2-year minimum sentence for Meredith Graves, 39, the New York Post reports.
“By prosecuting this woman and seeking 3 1/2 years of jail, we are shooting our own [gun-control] efforts in the foot and giving the rest of the country ammunition,” Vallone said.
Graves had a .32-caliber Kel-Tec handgun in her purse when she went to the memorial on Dec. 22 and tried to check it with a cop after she saw a sign reading “No Guns.”
Vallone cited a recently passed House bill that would allow people to carry registered guns between all states regardless of local laws.
“Clearly, the laws are too strict here, but that’s something we need to work out for ourselves without honoring licenses to carry guns in states where felons can carry them” he said.*
First, Mr. Vallone…IN WHAT FRACKING UNIVERSE DO THE TN LAWS, OR ANY OTHER STATE LAWS, ALLOW FELONS TO CARRY GUNS????
This is what Vallone thinks of the other 49 states in the Union…that NY is the only sensible one, and every other state is full of cousin-humping rednecks who have done jail time and have rap sheets a mile long, and those other states give out carry permits at the same time as they print the Certificate of Live Birth at the hospital when they are born.
I got news for the NY City Council dolts, and for Bloomy…if you prosecute this gal and give her anything more than a suspended sentence, you WILL make her the martyr and poster child of the NRA. You will personally guarantee that HR822 gets passed and gets signed into law by Obama.
We need mandatory reciprocity. HR822 must be passed now.
So, when we moved down, I went to register and title the vehicles. Figured that the titles would take the same amount of time as in NY, roughly 6 to 8 weeks.
Nope. Took all of 6 DAYS…
Business certificates? A week and a half, and everything was in my hands, mailed immediately from the state.
Applied for my carry permit three weeks ago. Came in the mail today.
ONLY THREE WEEKS….in NY it took over 5 MONTHS, and at that it was only the wait time for the interview with the judge to see if I was of *good morale character* enough to be trusted with a handgun. The license took another 3 weeks after the interview.
I love living in Tennessee….they treat you like an adult, as opposed to the nanny state of NY that treats you like an annoyance that they have no choice but to deal with because the law says they *have* to go through the motions of abiding the law regardless of if they actually give you permission to have a gun or not.
So the British PM, Mr. Cameron, used the power of his veto to stop a reorganization of the EU because it wasn’t in the best interest of Britain. The EU is all bunched-up in the panties (knickers to you Brits..) because they need the British money to help out the lazy bastards in Greece and Italy who want to start working at 30 and retire at 50, retiring on the public dole.
The Brits are telling the EU to shove their *union* up their collective asses. My take on it is that the British Parliament knows that they barely have enough money to take care of their own subjects (and I’m being rather generous with that statement…) and they aren’t keen on having their subjects getting all uppity when the news hits that Britain bailed out Greece. Last years London rioting would pale in comparison to a citizen uprising over needing more British austerity because Britsh monies went to Greece or Italy.
So the EU is getting all butt-hurt, and is hurling dire warnings about being ostracized by the rest of Europe. Meanwhile, the Brits are looking out for their own skins, and are betting that the EU wll collapse, taking all of its members with it, financially-speaking.
Screw the EU. Good on Britain for showing some backbone.
In the ObaMessiahs own words while making a speech in NJ during Corzines failed re-election campaign…
“For the past four years you’ve had an honest and honorable man leading the state…”
He left out Idiot, Moron, Dunce, Crook, Thief…..
She just ripped Eric Holder a new asshole in his Thursday session of tap dancing in front of the Judiciary Committee on F&F.
She’s like a freaking starving Tasmanian Devil on RedBull that scented a fresh steak.
OK…listening to the testimony today in the House Judiciary committee, which is *supposed to* be questioning the scumbag Eric Holder on FAST AND FURIOUS, are asking what he’s doing to prosecute Medicare fraud, Chinese knock-off products of intellectual property, etc…
Your Congresscritters at work trying to deflect the issue and wase taxpayer time ad money.
