September 9, 2011

The tenth anniversary of September 11 is upon us. I just came from my company’s interfaith memorial service at historic St. Peter’s Roman Catholic Church, steps from the World Trade Center. This is the church where the the body of the first recorded victim that day, Father Mychal Judge, the FDNY Chaplain, was carried and laid on the altar.

Today’s service was touching, exactly right.

We remember all of our many friends lost that day, now and forever.

9/11, We Don’t Forget, We Don’t Forgive, We will have a Reckoning

By Patrick Van Roy On September 9th, 2011 at 11:46 am

One night I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.
             Many scenes from my life flashed across the sky.
                  In each scene I noticed footprints in the sand.
                       Sometimes there were two sets of footprints,
                           other times there were one set of footprints.
                                  This bothered me because I noticed
                                that during the low periods of my life,
                             when I was suffering from
                         anguish, sorrow or defeat,
                     I could see only one set of footprints.
          So I said to the Lord,
      “You promised me Lord,
         that if I followed you,
             you would walk with me always.
                   But I have noticed that during
                          the most trying periods of my life
                                 there have only been one
                                       set of footprints in the sand.
                                           Why, when I needed you most,
                                          you have not been there for me?”
                                 The Lord replied,
                          “The times when you have
                  seen only one set of footprints,
          is when I carried you.”
                                                   Mary Stevenson

Republican Debate, Sept. 7, 2011

By Patty On September 8th, 2011 at 12:02 am

The Republican debate is tonight.  Photo live-blogging here. 

The debate will be held at the beautiful Reagan Library in Simi Valley, California and  starts now, 5:00 PM Pacific Standard Time.

This is your chance to judge for yourself:  is Huntsman really “intensely intellligent,” as Phantom claims?  Does Bachmann have “crazy eyes” like Tina Brown/Newsweek  portrayed her having?

Will Rick Perry remain the front-runner? Will Mitt Romney somehow make up for his lack of charisma by saying something so right and so wonderful that we all suddenly want to vote for him as Newt GIngrich did in the last debate when he criticized the lame stream media?

Follow along with drunk blogger Stephen Green, here.

 

A Little Reality

By Patrick Van Roy On September 7th, 2011 at 6:00 pm

Yesterday some fool on here attacked my stance on Guns and Gun Control. The Used a mad mans attack as an example that I was wrong. Some poor Man in Arizona lost his mind and shot 36 people killing 7 with an AK-47. At this point the man has been described as a legal immigrant, he had no police record, and was described by neighbors as a nice quite man if a little “slow”.

I’m sure more information will come out on a how this handicapped man got his hands on an AK-47, who knows maybe the government sold it to him under Obama’s Fast and Furious, I’m also sure we will find out what made him snap. Yesterdays rocket science commenter pointed out that 3 of the people killed in the one restaurant were in uniform National Guardsmen, and therefore should have been able to take him out, if my right to carry belief was real. The fool believed we allow our soldiers to carry weapons, he obviously doesn’t know how hard it is to get issued a weapon in the military even in a combat zone let alone at a base at home.

The sad fact is maybe if the had been armed less people would have been injured by a disturbed man. We live in a dangerous country here is a story of why one might need to be armed.

Philadelphia Student Carrying Legal Firearm Shoots It Out With Armed Robber

A Philadelphia college student put his firearm carry permit to good use Monday, as he shot it out with a would-be robber, hitting him twice.

Robert Eells, 21-year-old Temple University student, was in front of his off-campus house smoking a cigarette at 1:30Am Monday when a group of teenagers approached him and asked for money. The main suspect- who is 15-years old- allegedly then attempted to rob Eells, who refused the demand for cash.

At that point, police say the suspect started shooting, and hit Eels in the stomach.

But Eels was able to fight back. He drew his own legal pistol and fired, hitting the attacker in the chest and leg.

School officials say Eells is recovering at Temple University Hospital.  He had a license to carry the weapon he used and faces no charges in the incident.

The suspect is also in the hospital, and will face aggravated assault and attempted robbery charges. Police are searching for two accomplices.

When a 15yr old can get a gun to rob you with, do you really think passing more laws making it harder for law abiding citizens to get guns to defend themselves is going to make the world a safer place?

WHY I LOVE WIKIPEDIA

By David Vance On September 6th, 2011 at 9:53 pm

I guess it’s the idiocy that so impressed me about Wikipedia. I came across this delightful contribution…

“Following the 2010 Gaza flotilla raid TUV member David Vance sparked outrage regarding comments posted on Twitter social networking site. [14][15] It was later reported in 2010 that Mr Vance’s website faced closure over numerous instances of ‘hate speech’ in violation of Terms of Service. [16] The site had to change its hosting arrangements but remained open in May 2011,[17] in which month Vance was one of the unsuccessful TUV Assembly election candidates.”

First, it was SDLP village idiot Conal McDevitt and his BBC courtiers who “sparked outrage” amongst..erm….themselves over the Turkish thugs for Hamastan.

As for the “hate speech” nonsense, wrong. It was complaints from someone/some group in that bastion of free speech, Iran, that caused little flutters in Squarespace.

ATW is still here, providing a voice of principled dissent.

Sing A Song of Semtex

By Mahons On September 6th, 2011 at 7:13 pm

I wonder what people in the UK really think of the Prime Minister’s stated goal of seeking compensation for the victims of Libyan assistance to the IRA. It seems to me that gratitude in the form of a victims compensation fund would not be among the first priorities of whoever emerges at the top of the heap after the Libyan situation plays itself out.  In fact, I am fairly certain that there will be little enthusiasim among the revoluntiaries for such a program.  Indeed, they might ask why compensation was not required from the IRA itself, if in fact the issue troubles them at all.  

Of all the “this ship has sailed” moments, this one has to be one of the larger ones.  And it strikes me as gettting up the hopes of people unfairly.  If the Prime Minister is certain that such compensation would be forthcoming, couldn’t the government pay it out itself and seek reimbursement directly from the Libyans?   But they won’t do that because they know that the Libyans have no interest in this.

It seems to me that the military support which has morphed from protective action to outright support on behalf of the rebel elements could be conditioned on some sort of guarantee now, while assets are frozen and not in control of Libya.  But perhaps that makes too much sense.

Labor Pains

By Mahons On September 6th, 2011 at 5:48 pm

The President is going to have yet another problem given the intemperate words of Labor Leader Jimmy Hoffa who spoke at a rally that the President later addressed.  Hoffa want nuclear on the Tea Party, calling for “war” and labeling his unions the “troops” for the same.  Putting aside the usual antics of rally speakers, who like professional football players often invoke images of war to provoke or encourage, this one was still a dumb dumb dumb thing to say.  And it does the President no credit that he didn’t address it and at least explain why he doesn’t agree with that type of rhetoric.  Some might say that he does. 

As the President, he gets to pick his venues.  He has to be smart about where he goes and what other speakers might say.  Put aside the obvious need he has for union support, he should have the sense to know that outside of union circles, a diatribe by a guy named Hoffa isn’t going to play well.   And it certainly isn’t smart to play partisan one minute and then demand non-partisan cooperation the next. 

The Jobs crisis needs the undivided attention of both parties who both need to compromise to achieve any solutions.  Without that acknowledgment then all we are doign is spinning our wheels.

White House and Big Labor Declare War on Majority of Americans

By Patrick Van Roy On September 6th, 2011 at 5:38 pm

The workforce in the United States is comprised of 9% Labor Unions The majority of which are Government Unions that produce nothing and live of the money leached from the true middle class.  Well the Obama Regime has set loose the Congressional Black Caucus to fire up the racial lies against the Tea Party.

Now Teamster Thug Jimmy Hoffa Jr, and Joe Biden have sent the Organized Crime tactics of the Teamsters and the AFL-CIO after the General public.

A Union member is NOT part of the middle class of America, nor do they represent 93% of Labor.

A Union member is a leach that sucks the blood of capital from american industry, and government unions should all be banned. These people are not the middle class they are the protected muscle of the Democrat Party. Who have bancrupted every industry they have touched.

Well if they want a battle against the reality of economics and the constitution bring it on, faggot commie union workers.
