    The Time has Come for Albert to go to jail for assaulting unwilling women in motel rooms

    (“Deniers” made all that shit up, didn’t they, Albert. Your former wife knew better, however.)

    How about a carbon ax (lightweight) to be used on politicians with carbon footprints bigger than my 5t/year and who are trying to impose a carbon tax?

  3. M>C> says:

    Yes, lucky the SCOTUS didn’t order a full recount but rather elected W 5 votes to 4.

  4. M>C> says:

    I know ! I am shocked too–those 19 cases of voter fraud. Let’s see, 5,500,000 votes in Ohio, 19 possible fraudulent, hmmm that’s 00000345454 pct. Now if we only knew how all those 19 voted!

  5. M>C> says:

    You mentioned Ohio, and 19 is all the voter fraud I can find. What documentation do you have for these so-called missing votes?

    Anyway, which is worse: a carbon tax or the Iraq War?

    • Brian G Valentine says:

      Loud mouthed twerp progressives is worse.

    • papertiger says:

      Let’s weigh the harm.

      The Iraq war was a one off that resulted in the toppling of a dictator, free and fair elections for a country of 25 million souls.

      A carbon tax and it’s resulting suit of ancillary laws, strictures, and prohibitions, with it’s bureaus, departments, and agencies, will be a plague on future generations in pepertuity.

      • Andy Oz says:

        Carbon taxes are purely schemes to rip money off average people. End of story.

        The long-term costs of the war will exceed $3 trillion. Economic expert Linda Bilmes and Nobel Prize-winner Joseph Stiglitz estimate the direct long-term costs of the Iraq war at over $3 trillion. [Washington Post] That includes the cost of caring for wounded veterans, repairing and replacing worn-out military weapons and equipment, and paying interest on the national debt caused by the war. This staggering sum could have:
        Paid off 1/3 of the national debt; or
        Paid not only for our transition to energy independence, but also provided our nation with the most modern and efficient transport, communications and waters systems in the world, while creating literally millions of jobs here at home.
        But hey, at least we have no extra tax…

      • Brian G Valentine says:

        If you went to that war to help in any way, criticize all you want. Otherwise, your closed mouth will prevent people from mistaking you for an imbecile.

        I met exactly zero “progressives” the whole while I was there. Not from our side, not from the Iraqis, not even amidst the insurgency. It was a blessing.

    • MikeTheDenier says:

      Nobel Prize winners in the mold of Al Gore, Paul Krugman and Mike (I was on the team) Mann?? Need I say more?

      • M>C> says:

        So you are good with $3 Trillion +, 4000 US dead, thousands wounded, 300,000+ Iraq dead. Worth spending all that for what, exactly?
        :”The Iraq war was a one off that resulted in the toppling of a dictator, free and fair elections for a country of 25 million souls.”
        Sorry, not worth it. All the lies added up to the biggest US blunder since Viet Nam.
        Anyone one here remember Cap and Trade came from the first Bush administration?

  7. M>C> says:

    Voter Fraud update: …Of the 19 voters who are under investigation in Hamilton County, most voted early via absentee ballot and then went to cast provisional ballots at their polling place on Election Day. In each of those cases, the provisional ballot was rejected. So even if they were attempting to knowingly and fraudulently double vote, the system was already in place to catch them, and their second votes didn’t count.
    Whew!!

  8. The US economy is in so much trouble structurally, you might as well introduce an energy tax and put it out of its misery.

    Government to get more money and additional powers from it’s citizens – Carbon Tax what isn’t there to like?

    We contend that for a nation to tax itself into prosperity is like a man standing in a bucket and trying to lift himself up by the handle.

    What’s your vote on the Carbon Tax vs Iraq War question?

    The dirty Keystone oil is going to China, by the way. The pipeline will create 32 full time jobs.
    As for your last post about the tanks and all, I found the answer via the NRA’s page:
    After receiving numerous questions from his constituents regarding the contract, pro-Second Amendment U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland (R-Ga.) and his staff set out in search of the truth. In a press release, Rep. Westmoreland’s office explains:

    If you take the number of agencies that will be using this ammunition – CBP, Citizenship and Immigration Services, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), ICE, the U.S. Secret Service, Transportation Security Administration, the DHS police force, and all the guards that protect the various buildings these agencies are housed in, and spread that out over 5 years, you start to see that 450 million rounds really isn’t that large of an order. Especially considering it is used for training purposes like firing range and live fire exercises, on-the-job use (though that is very limited), and to shore up their supplies. In fact, there are 65,000 – 70,000 law enforcement personnel at DHS who would be covered under this … ammunition contract. If DHS were to purchase all 450 million rounds over 5 years, then that would equate to only about 1,384 rounds of ammo per year per law enforcement [officer] … assuming the lower estimate of only 65,000 law enforcement personnel at DHS. Considering those agents go through training exercises several times per year, that is not a lot of ammunition.

    • They need 2,700 tanks to stop 19 guys with box cutters, or a guy with exploding shorts.

      standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided, as dangerous to liberty; and that, in all cases, the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.

        You have some many charts about the weather, why can’t you check any of these stories? Facts beat all the typing typing that goes on here:
        The conclusion that the 2,717 Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicles are for the Department of Homeland Security is false. Instead, they are part of a contract award to the US Navy and will be subsequently used by the United States Marine Corps.

        Previous contract M67854-07-D-5032 can be found here and modifications to same contract can found here.

        A search for M67854-07-D-5032 at the Federal Procurement Data System reveals that all contract under this number are for the United States Navy.

        Finally, I’ll leave the reader to one more source here:

        Navistar lands $880 million defense contract

        Lisle-based Navistar Defense LLC landed an $880 million order from the U.S. Marine Corps to upgrade more than 2,700 mine resistant ambush protected vehicles, the company announced Tuesday.

        The Navistar International Corp. subsidiary will retrofit the MaxxPro vehicles with new rolling chassis to improve their off-road capability.

        “As Defense budgets are being reduced, it is imperative that we continue to develop economical solutions that repurpose assets while also working to ensure warfighters have access to emerging technologies and capabilities,” Navistar Defense President Archie Massicotte said in a statement. “Our rolling chassis solution allows us to leverage our unique vehicle design and replace an older chassis with a new, highly mobile independent suspension chassis.”

        In summary, the 2,700 vehicles are not for DHS but the USMC by way of the US Navy.

      How many jobs do you think are created by lowering the cost of fuel, Dung Head?

      I can’t take any more progressive “reasoning”

    • gofer says:

      Hollow points aren’t used in training, too expensive.

    • gofer says:

      That “dirty” oil is already coming into the U.S. via Keystone pipeline all the way to Ok and over to Ill. Where is the outrage?

      • gofer says:

        Warren Buffett’s trains are carrying a lot of Keystone Oil. Obama is probably waiting for Warren’s approval. States would gain millions in property taxes from the line and it would also pick up oil from the fields in the Dakotas. There’s 55,000 miles of crude oil lines and this one will be the tipping point, I tell ya, it’s the end. People have no fears of mad dictators with nuclear weapons, but a pipeline is sure to bring doom to all of us. This is why the country is doomed, because people have lost all reasoning and run their lives with emotions, pulled to and fro by propagandists who use them to make millions.

      http://www.forbes.com/sites/ralphbenko/2013/03/11/1-6-billion-rounds-of-ammo-for-homeland-security-its-time-for-a-national-conversation/

      The spokesperson for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center states that training centers and shooting ranges run by Homeland Security only use 15,000,000 rounds per year. The ordered ammo is enough for more than 100 years

      At the height of the Iraq war, we were expending 6,000,000 rounds per month. Thats enough ammo to fight an Iraq sized war for 20+ years.

  13. M>C> says:

    Department of Homeland Security includes such law enforcement agencies as the Border Patrol, US Customs, the Federal Protective Service (which guards federal buildings, including Congress), the Secret Service, and the Coast Guard—all of which use guns and bullets as part of their regular duties. It also runs the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
