The P.O.P. Factor

"Just the facts, ma'am." More often than not, politically correct bullshit won't be found here. Pardon me while I exercise my 1st amendment right! I welcome all to my little world of bitches, moans, gripes and complaints, and sometimes, the downright freakin' odd. Take a seat and join me. I love a good story.

Angry Questions from an Angry American

After many changes in my life, I thought I would have the time and inclination to get back in to blogging. Instead, I have chosen to fly in to the land of Twitter and have become obsessed with those postings of 140 characters or less. If you've been as hesitant as I have about wandering over to Twitter, let me warn you, it borders on Face-crack. Sometimes you just can't turn yourself away.
In today's world of social media, I have sadly been assimilated in to little snippets of news and little known facts.

My tweets cover a wide range of topics, but mostly they revolve around current events. Somehow, that POS President of ours monopolizes my random tweets. I am an avid reader and I have found that I can be all over the map when it comes to reading on line news organizations. I must say that both the conservative and liberal news media have had their own individual issues. There doesn't seem to be any real, hard core journalists out there willing to ferret out the truth, no matter how many rocks they have to turn over. In fact, it's like all of the news media has had a pitcher of the proverbial kool-aid. No one wants to make waves, so they report what they've been spoon fed and nothing more. Our state of political correctness has been so all encompassing that we are leery of exercising our 1st Amendment rights for fear of being labeled a "racist" or facing potential legal action. The word "racist" is now so over used, that no one in their right mind (that's the key) takes it seriously anymore.

Now, as was predicted by some Republican candidates who shall remain nameless, our world is in turmoil and our government has become an international joke. Obama is, by all accounts, begging to be impeached. If his original thought when he took this job was to leave an ever-lasting legacy, he has certainly fulfilled that objective. Some talking heads believe that drafting articles of impeachment against Obama before the elections in November will probably put the Democrats in a more positive light, possibly winning back control of the Senate. Others believe there's no time like the present.

I personally believe that it's long past time. There are no indications that he will stop signing and passing these executive orders any time soon. He knows he has free rein and that no one has the balls to stop him. It's true.

Recent stats indicate that as many as 200,000 illegals have crossed the border looking for a free handout. Even that number may be an under estimate. No one truly knows. We can't count on our government to be transparent with actual facts. Americans everywhere are loudly protesting illegals being dumped in their backyards, and are not swayed by the recent term 'refugee.' Illegals with no vaccinations, infectious diseases, criminal records, known gang bangers, and even terrorists, are making their way in to our country unfettered and Obama...DOES NOT GIVE A SHIT. It's the most asinine political ploy ever contrived.

Second on that list was the exchange of 5 terrorists from Gitmo for the release of one Army deserter. Yet, our fearless leader refuses to even have an open discussion with Mexican authorities about Sgt. Tahmooressi being held incommunicado on weapons charges.
His inactions on that matter are one of many impeachable offenses. We could go on, but what's the point?

What are we to do? Stand by and let it happen? Obama is supporting terrorists, both by his actions and by openly financing them. He has effectively turned many against our ally, Israel, with outright accusations and half assed diplomatic negotiations. If I was Netanyahu, I would just give Obama the finger and move on. The Israelis have done an exceptional job of restraint and are not cold, heartless bastards as our President and the liberal news media are attempting to present them. The Palestinians and Hamas don't want peace and will not surrender, consistently releasing propaganda and using cutthroat measures to ensure that the view of Israel is presented negatively.
There are rumors of the UN looking at Israel for war crimes. Are they serious? The liberal progressive agenda has taken a horrid turn. Our enemies are now our allies and vice versa.
Obama kisses Muslim ass and we're turning the corner to Socialism.

There are just too many things wrong with this presidency, too many scandals and too many acts of treason. When will it end? Why are we letting it continue?

Isn't it time for real Americans to stand up and make their voices heard?

Hello Again

It occurred to me that it's been a very long time since I've blogged. Not that I haven't wanted to vent my frustrations or share my humor, but life as we all know it has taken a drastic turn. To say the world has become a horrifyingly violent and pathetic place is, in my opinion, an understatement.
My own personal life has taken a rather drastic turn as well, details of which I will spare you.

Suffice it to say, there's a multitude of ideas rolling around in my old noggin that I will proceed to put on to my computer screen for everyone's enjoyment. That is, if you're a fan. If you're not, tahellwityas!

If anyone has any thoughts or comments, any ideas, or even if you want to be a "guest" writer on to my blog, feel free to email me.

See you all soon!

The Race Card

Seriously? The President threw the race card?

“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said.

THE BLAZE  comment section has the most entertainment.

If you feel so inclined, you could be bored to death and read the whole article in THE NEW YORKER

Political Gun Grabbers

I have never hid the fact that I am a believer in the 2nd amendment. In my varied law enforcement career my ideals and thoughts on gun ownership evolved in to a direction I never thought I'd go. Having witnessed the after effects of victims of violent crimes, especially women and the elderly, I began to encourage people to exercise their 2nd amendment right. BUT, when I encouraged such ideas, I stressed the responsibility that goes with purchasing and owning any firearm. Then I started working in a gun store. Then I joined the NRA. Then I got really angry with many of our anti gun lawmakers (mostly liberal democrats) who think that gun grabbing and limiting how much ammo a gun will hold, will prevent violent crimes and school shootings.

Most of us logical thinking people know those ideas will resolve nothing. Legislation was recently presented to toughen background checks on gun purchases. The Universal Background Check legislation was doomed from the beginning. It would not have prevented anything. To legally purchase a gun anywhere in the U.S., a background check is required. The Brady Act  was signed in to legislation in 1993. Purchasing a firearm legally, from a licensed FFL dealer, requires a background or NICS (National Instant Background Checks System) check. And that's the key word, legally. While I do believe the NICS system does make a difference, it's not fool proof. If someone wants to get their hands on a firearm, they will do so one way or another.

Now we have politicians and their followers spouting forth their propaganda on limiting the size of a hand gun's magazine and the ban on "assault weapons." Most of them are ignorant of the very guns they are trying to outlaw.
Sales people, unlike politicians, generally know the product they're trying to sell. If I'm trying to sell someone on the fact that certain firearms should be banned, then I should know what I'm talking about. Let's face it, politicians can often be comparable to your stereotypical sleazy car salesmen. In fact, I think used car salesman might have higher moral standards. But I digress....

To cite some examples:

Sen. Kevin deLeon, (D) CA explains a "ghost gun." (Try not to spew your drink on your computer screen.)

Rep. Diana DeGette, (D) CO explains magazine size limitations.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, (D) NYC explains auto vs. semi-auto

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, (D) NY that barrel shroud thingy lady

Vice-President Joe Biden (D)  Has no frickin idea....

How the hell do these people get elected??

It's 5 o'clock somewhere

Altoona, PA

There's so many different and often times, dangerous, ways to get high these days. But to go to these lengths is just another chapter in the land of stupid. The words 'free alcohol' always brings to mind an open bar or a frat party.

But getting free alcohol from a hand sanitizer machine?  Seriously? Seriously.

The bar is open.

No pants? No problem

Charleston, SC

Freezing temperatures have descended all over the continental US, and that includes record breaking low temps in the southeast.
Which makes me wonder if these cold temps are causing so much stupid.
This particular little pervert must enjoy getting his rocks off driving around half naked. But, when the temps are in the teens, his little weeny has got to be looking for a place to stay warm.

Unfortunately, when you start scaring little old ladies with your weenycicle, you're probably gonna get caught.

Lionel Smalls probably has one.

Duct Tape fixes anything

Charleston, SC

If you're gonna rob a store, you most definitely want to ensure no one can identify you.
However, most people wouldn't resort to such extremes to disguise their face.
It's been kind of cold...why not use a ski mask? No. It''s apparently not a fitting disguise for what is most probably a desperate crack head.

The Duct Tape Robber

What's the odds of solving this robbery?
