Eight Year Old Kicks Ass

Nathan Kuhns will have an amazing story to share during his school’s next show-and-tell session.

During a family vacation Friday, the 8-year-old Whitehall boy fought off a middle-aged man who was trying to kidnap his little sister on a sidewalk in Myrtle Beach, S.C., according to the Kuhns family and Myrtle Beach police.

Nathan charged the man — who had his 4-year-old sister, Josie, by the arm and was dragging her to a car — then kicked, clawed and bit him until he let her go and fled, police and the family said.

Well, all I can say is I’d have that little fella watch my back anytime. Can you imagine what this perp will go through when he gets caught and his cell mates find out he got his ass kicked by an eight year old, 80 pound boy? I’d like to be a fly on the wall for that little scenario.

More Arizona SB1070 Drama – Janet Can’t Read Either…

h/t Real Clear Politics and Hot Air.

Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano admits she hasn’t read the Arizona immigration law, but passed judgment on it anyway. “That’s not the kind of law I would have signed,” she declared.

“I believe it’s a bad law enforcement law. I believe it mandates and requires local enforcement and puts them in a position many do not want to be placed in,” Napolitano said.

“When I was dealing with laws of that ilk, most of the law enforcement agencies in Arizona at that time were opposed to such legislation,” she claimed.

Of course you don’t like the law, because you’ve read it cover to cover as head of the agency that SHOULD BE DOING THIS!  To review, SB 1070 is only here because the Federal Government refuses to perform its Constitutionally mandated duty to protect our borders.

Two words come to mind.  Dumb.  Bitch.

Ummm, Janet?  That’s your department, cupcake.  But the other question one asks is:

WHY CAN NO ONE WHO WORKS FOR OBAMA READ?

More of the same folks:  ineptitude, malfeasance and dereliction of duty is the SOP (standard operating procedure) of this regime.  If “Big Sis” (or for that matter, Eric Holder) were in a Republican administration, Democrats would be rectally excreting kittens* until she was fired or resigned.  A Republican in this position would be called treasonous – a Dem is just “too busy to read”.  Business as usual.

Of course some have “…learned a lot since I served in Vietnam…” .  Of course Dems don’t lie, they are simply misunderstood.   natch.  Hey Gramps, how you like Mr. Blumenthal’s ” ‘nam cred”?

Is it November yet?

Obama’s Escalating “Jewish Problem”

h/t Hot Air, via Little Miss Attila (my fellow lettuce maven):

All you really need to know is in the highlighted blurb below (emphasis mine).  As with everything Obama, the issue is not germain; it’s the votes, stupid!  If Obama thought it were more political advantageous to toss Israel under the wheels of his campaign bus, be assured he’d do so.

When did the Obama administration become aware that they had “screwed up the messaging”?  About the same time that Jewish voters began abandoning them.  That would have been shortly before Chuck Schumer scolded them over fumbling the alliance, and perhaps just after leaking that Obama would “impose” a peace plan on Israel.  With the midterms looking disastrous, Emanuel and his team want to shore up support in one of the most reliable voting blocs Democrats have.

The problem is that it’s not just the messaging.  Obama set peace negotiations back to pre-Oslo days by demanding a halt to building in an area of Jerusalem that hadn’t ever been a hurdle to talks in the past.  He insulted Israel’s Prime Minister in a visit to the White House, and has repeatedly demanded concessions from Israel as preconditions to talks with an enemy that still refuses to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist.  This White House has objectively been the most hostile American administration to Israel since its founding.

If they just try to spin the messaging while keeping to the same strategies, don’t expect it to fool anyone.  Pleasing words mean less and less after the track record of the last sixteen months.  This looks like a desperate plea from Emanuel to the rabbis asking them to ignore Obama’s obvious hostility towards Israel in order to get more Democrats elected.

Ronnie James Dio 1942 – 2010

(Cross-posted at Viewed From The Right)

Ronnie James Dio, whose soaring vocals, poetic lyrics and mythic tales of a never-ending struggle between good and evil broke new ground in heavy metal, died Sunday, according to a statement from his wife and manager, Wendy Dio. Ronny was  67.

The man who first threw the fingered sign now known as “horns” (quoted from Dee Snider: “…Ronnie was the first ever to throw horn “with intent…”) passed away as a result of stomach cancer. Ronnie’s voice and stage presence had a profound impact on rock music.  Bands such as Rainbow, Deep Purple, Back Sabbath/Heaven and Hell, and his self-named band Dio sold millions of records and entertained similar numbers in live shows worldwide. Ronnie can also be seen in bit parts on several music-related movies, the latest being Tenacious D with Jack Black.

A man whose physical stature did not correlate to the power of his voice (if you know Ronnie’s singing, you’re aware that even Shaq couldn’t match that voice), in person he was the most hospitable and engaging guy you would ever hope to meet – quite contrary to his quasi-demonic stage character.  Ronnie’s voice graces some of my favorite albums of the genre. The music world will miss his contributions.

Typically, one would wish the departing soul “Rest in Peace”. For Ronnie, we’ll instead “throw horns” and pray he either minimally corrupt Heaven, or enjoys ruling Hell.  And for a send off…

DEFEAT ELENA KAGAN

Nothing against her personally, she seems like she is a nice person.  But so what?  Eva thought Adolph was a nice person, too. 

I consider this post from theweeklystandard to be “required reading”: “The Rights’ Supreme Court Acquiescence.”  In a John Doe nutshell, Miguel Estrada thinks that the Republican Senators should quickly confirm Kagan because she is technically qualified and her views are within the “mainstream” of current legal thought.  The left doesn’t play nice–they oppose justices with right-of-center legal views, even though they are “within the mainstream.”  And they attack them especially when they are qualified.

I’d like to give Estrada a swift kick in the ass.  That’s the attitude that kept GWB from fighting back against his liberal attackers for eight long years.  Fight back you dumb sons of b!tches!  Obama opposed nominees based strictly upon their ideology.  Give him a taste of  his own medicine.  Don’t play by the Marquess of Queensberry Rules when the other side refuses to abide by them.

Great, Obama appointed a third woman.  I have no problem with women Justices.  But she’s the third one from New York City.  I propose that we make a rule that no more than one person from NYC should ever be on the Supreme Court at the same time.  Three women from there should be grounds for immediate impeachment. This country will not elect Presidents from the liberal northeast, see, e.g., Dukakis and Kerry.  Why should we be stuck with three Justices from New York City? I’d oppose her just on that basis alone.  What’s wrong, Obamster, you can’t find an intelligent and qualified woman outside of New Yawk?

The woman has about zero experience out in the real world.  Big deal, she was an associate of one of the best law firms in D.C., Williams and Connelly.   For one year.  They don’t let their clerks see the inside of a court-house in the first year.  She spent her hours researching and writing memos to the partners.  She didn’t like it so she went to work teaching law school.  Teaching law and acting as Dean of a law school does not qualify one to be a Justice on the Supreme Court.  She’s worse than a “pilot” who teaches others to fly but has never flown herself.  At least pilots can practice flight simulators.

And this nonsense that great legal minds can only come from Harvard and Yale law schools is pure bunk.  Continue reading
