Ah, The Peanut Gallery will be a little less cantankerous

By Patrick Van Roy On August 16th, 2011 at 5:46 am

It is that rare moment that this humble poster will take a vacation. Yes yes I know refrain from your heartbreak, for as another great man said once “I Shall Return”.

We are off to the rocky Coast of Maine, big family confab in Kennebunkport. Ah a time for Lobster Rolls and Relaxation. Packing the wife and kiddies into the car, and trekking up the coast. Were going to stop in Boston and torture the locals there first, see a little history. Then a week in North Eastern Heaven.

If I had my way, and the money, my summers would be spent in KBP, my winters in Fort Myers, and spring and fall in Pennsylvania. So I leave you with a tune. Which I’m sure some of you would try to say was about me… 🙂

The Marxist Moron In Chief

By Patrick Van Roy On August 16th, 2011 at 4:45 am

President Barry never held a real job in his life, Marxist, Community Organizer, Told Auto Manufacturers today and I quote

“You can’t just make money on SUVs and trucks, There is a place for SUVs and trucks, but as gas prices keep on going up, you have got to understand the market. People are going to try to save money.”

First off this ass wouldn’t know the Market if it bit him in it. Second after violating the law and cutting out the share holders when he seized control of the auto industry and turned it over to the communist front of America the UAW, he actually truly believes he can dictate what will sell and won’t sell.

Sorry Barry it doesn’t work that way. First off the price of gas is artificially inflated directly due to your actions as President, and We The People know it. Second you can’t dictate against the law of supply and demand. Ask the Soviets they tried and their society collapsed, but oh that’s right it didn’t work for them because they didn’t have the brain trust of Obama, Pelousy, Reid, Dodd, and Frank to do it the right way.

“When I came into office they were talking about the liquidation of GM and Chrysler, and a lot of folks said you can’t help them, and it’s a waste of the government’s money to try and help them,” Obama said Monday. “But what I said was, we can’t afford to lose up to a million jobs in this country, particularly in the Midwest.”

Especially since those workers Union Dues pay for the DNC. So he violated the bankruptcy laws and now he will choose what we drive. All Hail El Duce fore he knows what’s good for us.

2 more years of this clown, we are just so screwed….

That’s how long the Stones have been making music, the last tour they did I called it the geriatric tour. Whether you love them or hate them, they’ve outlasted everybody, and gave us some great rock along the way. Here’s a couple from one of my favorite albums Some Girls

THE TROUBLE WITH GANGSTA CULTURE, INNIT?

By David Vance On August 13th, 2011 at 1:43 pm

It’s a fair question although it seems to enrage liberals, as David Starkey has found out!

“Why do white liberals accept the “gangsta” persona as a perfectly legitimate expression of black culture?”

Read this.

Gangsta culture is a deadly virus threatening black culture.

Who says?

This guy, wanna argue?

U.S. Spending so even A Liberal could understand it.

The Numbers I am about to use have been put into ratio’s so that even the dim witted could follow, and will be explained in a manner that if you still don’t understand it, please very please, don’t vote. and for gods sake don’t breed.

Lets look at the Smith Family and their finance’s, The Smiths earn $28,000 a year, The Smiths spend $38,000 a year plus they have charged $16,000 on their Credit Cards. The also have a home that they owe $140,000, The Bank has called and have told them they need to balance their finances or loose the house, so they cut $385 Dollars a year off their spending and then have a fit when the bank sends them an eviction notice, oh and they blame the bank while they complain.

Below is a nice video of a gentleman that reflects the view held by 70% of the American public, on the Smiths behavior.
If their are young children in the room ask them to leave, or don’t play it

Enter William J Bratton

By Phantom On August 12th, 2011 at 10:00 pm

He’s a tough Boston Irishman whose confidence has always been off the charts.

He’s been police commissioner in Boston, New York and Los Angeles.

In Boston, he was awarded that department’s highest award for valor.

In New York, he led from the front. He ordered his men to go into harm’s way. He, with Mayor Giuliani, guaranteed historic reductions in crime, and then delivered on it, fueling the sustained renaissance of New York City.

In Los Angeles, his third major act, he did it again. All major categories of crime went down significantly under his watch.

Bratton’s methods are scientific. He was an early proponent, and exporter of the Compstat program, which relentlessly tracks all categories of crime down to the neighborhood level. Resources were quickly moved from one area to the other as needed. There was a reduced emphasis on catching criminals per se, but more on stopping the crime from being committed in the first place- an essential distinction.

This didn’t mean condoning any brutality, or any unnecessary violence. While the NYPD was achieving massive reductions in crime, they actually fired their weapons less every year.

London, and England have this week seen widespread riots, vandalism and looting. This has been a severe shock to the system to Britain and to it’s friends around the world. All won’t agree on the causes, but many agree that the response of the Metropolitan Police in London has been inadequate and reactive.

It is reported that Bill Bratton will soon accept a position as a consultant for the British government and/or police.

Bratton said he believes British police need to focus on quelling racial tensions by collaborating more with community leaders and civil rights groups. He also said social media sites can be a useful tool for law enforcement trying to monitor gang activities.

In NY, he met with everybody. In LA, he met with the gangs. But all as part of a strategy.

“The idea is to get ahead of the violence rather than just react to it,” he said.

There was a zero tolerance approach to crime and civil unrest in NY and LA and it bore immense dividends.

It doesn’t sound like he’ll have an executive position in the the UK. But this is one consultant that every cop and politician ought to listen to.

The zero tolerance approach to crime and unrest has proved highly effective throughout the US. If implemented in the Britain, it will work there too.

In Los Angeles, Bratton again displayed a politician’s deft touch with the city’s diverse communities while showing his formula for knocking down crime rates was portable: When Bratton left the West Coast in 2009 after seven years on the job, crime in the nation’s second-largest city had dropped to levels not seen since the 1950s.

And on to the Supreme Court

By Mahons On August 12th, 2011 at 6:20 pm

The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals based in Atlanta, GA has declared the individual mandate in the Health Care Law to be unconstitutional.   This means we are going to see the dispute move on to the Supreme Court of the United States.  I presume that conservatives will find themselves in the unusal role of applauding judges (no judicial activists these).  Should make for an interesting October.

Mitt Romney – Corporations Are People

By Mahons On August 11th, 2011 at 9:57 pm

He was better off in the Mittness Protection Program (not my original) when he wasn’t appearing in public.  Instead he melted in the face of some hecklers and voiced the rather disturbing comment that Corporations are people.  Perhaps one loves them that way (especially if you’ve made Romney’s money), but as a catch phrase in a recession, not the best comeback.  I think Soylent Green is people might have gone over better. 

Sure he was trying to say he wouldn’t raise taxes, and that poor defenseless corporations are really just like you and me.  But for the love of God, can’t he say it in a way that doesn’t scream “Out of touch”?  Romney has positioned himself to get knocked down early.  I don’t see how Iowa’s wacky system results in a win for him (Bachmann and Paul have greater chances under that Iowa system).  

With Rick Perry poised to enter the race, Romney is going to need to do a heck of a lot better in explaining why he should be President if he wants to win in the primaries.  Otherwise he’ll be a footnote, again.
