Yeah, and Rep. Conyers was there nodding (in agreement). Don’t you, Yeah I said YOU, love it when Farrakahn can serve you a black crap sandwich and you say, ‘Oh why didn’t you cook it some more?’
Love of the common crime is a many splendored thing, or so the whities sing real tidie. And now this Old Thugologist, aged 80, can stand up there and be black and you just can’t get it back. They won’t give it to ya. I’m telling you, if there’s the slightest bit of Jew in YOU, you are going to feel that love has done gone and went.
Amen. (See that’s what’s religious freedom is all about.)

The danger is when they use those bullets and all videos are scrambled of the event. Or that being not really ‘smart’, photos of the participants and then an inexplicable ‘Kristalnacht’ of their property, their homes, their children. ’Argue with your neighbor; get in their face’. directives come to mind. When some counterterrorist (govt. plant) throws a small bomb, or shoots a gun in the air… then what?
Then the IRS had every right to protect us from these Tea Party terrorists… this broadcast over every MainStreet Media, MSNBC, and cameras and microphones are activated in portable devices like iPad (even turned off), people are rounded up.. (this all info from Ray Kurtzweil, the Chief-Techie of Google).
Freedom of Speech, the 1st amendment abrogated like a bad chapter in the Koran, and the 2nd falls like a rock (Iraq). As a former FEMA Hazard Mitigation Specialist, the bureaucrats are salivating about the promotions and the staff that they will need to lead this battle this ‘ObamaJihadi Spring’ for America.

I really like Ben Steyn putting is illegal alien comments to good use. Notice he leaves out chatter about the illegal alien and Sen. Rubio rub. I guess if we have a son of a Kenyan elite, Haaaavad trained Marxist turned alcoholic bum upon returning to homeland, we shouldn’t push the string to forcefully on that.
And after all it was Ben in his movie about Creationism, that got the atheist Dawkins to admit that yes, aliens perhaps landed here and started things human going, but they were derived from ooozzzz elsewhere. (paraphrase) Don’t you love environmental and evolutionary scientist ass hairs? If they grow long enough, you could claim they could ‘weave from behind’.
Butt seriously, look at the IRS; they were targeting Democrat-accused Terrorist (and racists and homophobes) Tea Partiers who WANTED SMALLER GOVERNMENT (i.e. few people watching them..yeah, them.. ). So this straw man Terrorist group really didn’t want the thousands upon thousands of government workers (a friend of my wife has worked in the Labor department her whole career and she wrote the manual on how to use the copy machine properly… without bias and gets 8 wks vacation, and 6 figger$, etc.) Now everyone in the government who lives by the largess of Public Unions who own both sides of the table, kissing (or not) their own asses, only. And politicians are supposed to stop this… and then they will be attacked (look at Michelle Bachmann).
Now if you oppose that largess, you are a terrorist of the Public Union State, and against the freedom of government fleecing you. And you are a homophobe, racist, antidisestablishmentarian. The IRS didn’t need orders; it just needed not to get caught. But now that Conservatives are terrorists, it’s ok to evoke all the protections that Bush put into place after 911. And then it’s Bush’s fault. Oh yeah, that’s right you have to take away the guns (2nd Amendment) and free speech and peaceful assembly (1st Amendment) and maybe religious freedom (Islam deserves more protection, because they are more ‘sensitive’ to criticism).
AhOH, we haven’t got all the horse’s asses facing the cart (pulling it). Man, I’m kinda enjoying all these Democrats and RINO’s kissing at those horse’s asses, coaxing them to turn around and pull. If they ask you to turn around and pull, be sure to offer them a finger to pull… that’s always a gas.
I’m having so much fun with this image… imagining them all trying to jump in the cart when one turns and then getting another to turn, when WHAMMM’ Daryl Issa… IG …. AP phone hack…. putting mules in their stead… just keep on kissing those asses; weave a little ass hair mustache filter…it’s organic. Leading from behind, it only works when you are going downhill.

Might want to check the IRS audit schedule; McCain’s wife and her beer business could be getting a look-see, or a wedgie. Lawyers to defend could cost a $100k or so, and then what would Megan do… not talk to daddy, that’s for sure?

‘What Difference Does It Make?’ The difference between right and wrong; honest and dishonest; humble and arrogant. On at least those 3 counts, Hillary you fail.
Amazing how all this is hidden for so long… maybe there are no more lawyers willing to sue on her behalf pro bono (and with promise of future appointment)… or don’t want their phone records tapped or have to just listen to the bitch anymore…

Looks like Bob Schieffer isn’t interested in 72 virgins; he actually thinks ‘Legacy’. Of course Obama, like every golfer, ‘Eventually’, will end up just losing his balls. So good luck, Barry with the barry pretty 72 virgins. Yes Barry, your Jihad against infants, against conservatives, against honest voters, against citizens, against military, against small business owners has done damage; Allah would be proud; is it time to blow yourself up, just yourself?

This has a thugs mentality about it. Like a Islamist with too many wives or harem and not enough money to play his golf game with friends twice per week. Not to be satisfied with forcing Catholics and others of conscience to fund abortion for up to 6 mo. old fetuses (or until viable or ‘whoops we didn’t think he could crawl that fast, so snip his neck’) per the infamous and retracted testimony of the Roe vs. Wade ‘Supreme Court’ decision, they have to intimidate them, force them to pay more, kill more and cause more suffering.
I am so grateful that our society still has a Thomas More Society, and luckily they were founded in 1997, so they didn’t have to endure the intimidation from Obama and his IRS. They also support ‘marriage’ between one man and one woman. I agree; if gays want to be together for life, they can make up a word for it and forge ahead, like ‘garriage’. And then if two men, one woman and 3 goats want to ‘hook’ up (and get a lot of government benefits) they can make up a word like Wogoatwomanarriage’ and put together all the package and sell it to churches and temples, etc. I look at it objectively, nothing in nature wants to ‘horn’ in on the say ‘Krebs Cycle’. So get some backbone and push and pull and bahhhh ahead..
Oh, and one more that Thomas More Society, and this goes back to that fella, Ben Franklin, who kinda arranged a marriage with a woman who would take care of him and then he was gleefully enjoying the French court, so much so that his Tory son, Gov. of NJ, was estranged from him. But Ben in his wisdom after just surviving a voyage across the pond because of some rocks and a storm was said to have said’ If I were a good Catholic, I would give some money to the saint of travels, but since I’m not, I think I’ll fund a Lighthouse.’ The Thomas More Society is such a lighthouse. I plan on funding them; and thereby helping the Christian faith to more easily attain their vows of poverty. A 2-fur. (I don’t think Doug Hofstadter would squeeze that into a ‘arriage’ casing.)
Note I have hope that we will all soon be more proud of ourselves, neighbors, friends and especially more caring to those beautiful women who find themselves nurturing their legacy and our collective and communal, human future. And struggle to show males how to be responsible and men.
And I wanted to dedicate this to my dad, who I only saw cry once in my life, and that was when ‘Dolly’ our horse miscarried with a breached foal, and we called the only vet we knew (he really should have had a plan) but he didn’t have the equipment to save her or her foal; the mother’s intestines were prolapsed out and the foal was trapped. Later he admitted he also broke down and that was upon entering Dachau in April, 1945. He was a great pediatric engineer of life, trained in pathology as well, and so was a wonderful diagnostician for nonverbal infants. Here’s one of his eulogies, from where he used to say, ‘I love to be on the water, looking back to the land.’

The only place ‘affirmative action’ should be allowed is when there are two candidates equal for admission. Also note that what the university ‘needs’ whether it be an athlete, musician, dancer, poet… these come first in the selection. Also children of alumni get a hand up.
Then if there is a minority student with no disqualifiers, like son of criminal, or terrorist, then half the time it should go to the minority. That seems fair.
The present policy is going to give the minorities the ‘majority’. When that happens do you think the White Anglo Saxon Protestant (WASP) is going to get ‘affirmative action’? Probably about the same treatment as the IRS to the Tea Party, or it will be moot because they will be silenced or converted into a Islam-like worship of abortion, domination, privilege and war.

My question is who’s going down the ‘rabbit hole’, Google or NASA (I like NASA, but they are us, the taxpayer). Here they have a public-private and for profit relationship; do we all benefit, or just the ‘government class and their union (as in public) (as in IRS union ‘thugs’). Will this computer find a ‘there there’ when Obama says there is not a there there? When Slick Willy said ‘it all depends what the definition of ‘is’ is, will this AI machine give us an ‘is’ quantum by quantum, or round it up to the next ‘is’?
Now as to the environment, whether the weather is really changing with 400 ppm or ppb of CO2, or are we trying counting the number of dust particles in a tornado or ever still wonder if Dr. Gosnell really did the right thing for global population by snipping a few unwanted necks. Hey nobody told me they could be offering late term babies, but nobody asked either. Will this machine say…. NO killing, especially Qubits!
And I really would like to see a few more duels between Doug Hofstadler and Mr. (I can make the Blind read) Ray Kurzweil. See Doug thinks our Quantum computer that we house behind those ‘Baby Blues’, is a little more varied and spectacular than anything ‘computeresque’. I’m really looking forward to reading ‘Escher, Goedel, Bach’ or having the time for the free MIT course on the subject. Now as my dad always used to say, ‘Bilateral.’ And when I was studying the medial temporal lobe of Rhesus monkeys with Robert Correll, the professor I was renting a room from, Dr. George Higgins, who specialized in clinical and abnormal psychology, voiced his opinion thusly: ’The mind is a lot different from a taperecorder.’ My response, ‘I’ve always wanted to know exactly how a taperecorder works.’ That shut him up; he wasn’t up for the challenge; yeah and he was accusing me of treating the mind like a machine. And me defending the machine to prove that I wasn’t… so I’m a little bit on both sides of this issue.
But I do have my Certainty mathematical model, that might just run off of differences in everything it sees; like Escher there is nothing without something, so space, esp. that compact and expensive Real Estate in the convolutions of our minds sees everything as something surrounded by something different, else it wouldn’t see anything ‘in particle’ ular. (that’s for Doug.)

Looks like wheee have another ‘Weiner’ hangin’ out there, or in there. Huma, not mentioned here has that family connection that is the Muslim Brotherhood, you know, the Terrorist group, that ‘really is pieceful’. Oh and Obama wanted to send back the son of the founder, who outed the group as fully engaged in terror, but like any government… has ‘nice’ people doing ‘nice’ things so they can keep the cash flowing in or out (if you’re a Weiner running for Mayor of NYC). (or like the irs … shhhhhh).
Wallah… what? he, she, it worry? Me thinks I feel breeze coming from fan, fumunda.
Danish physicist Lene Hau led a team of Harvard University scientists who were able to slow down and then eventually stop a beam of light. She has also conducted research on ultra cold atoms, nanoscopic scale systems, and the transference of matter into light. “Neither of my parents had any background in science. My father was in the heating business and my mother worked in a store. But both of them believed in giving me the same advantages as my brother, which was very important to my education. -

I previously mentioned Lene as a truly great innovator in the world of BEC’s. At some point it might be necessary to start a new topic in science: Theometrics: Gauging the ideal and or boundaries of knowledge.
BEC’s are one of those boundaries. And the amazing thing is that we know them now, at least a little bit; on small scales. Perhaps it won’t be too long and we will be able to identify them on larger, even natural platforms or spaces within energy fields, like dark energy, or black holes, etc. Even the telltale slowing of a laser beam within a BEC gives a characteristic of both. What happens with different frequencies, magnitudes, etc. At some point we might be able to id BEC’s remotely by the way they interact with lasers. If so Lene Hau with BECs, like Madame Curie with radioactivity, will be foundational.
My mom and many women of my parents’ generation didn’t get to college because of the severe impact of the 1930’s and then WWII. And of course, many wonderful women choose to raise children and be the foundation to their successes. We all need to appreciate them as equal in rights, but also vive la difference’. They also inspire the many successes credited to men, as men are designed with more strength and more mobility and consistency as they don’t experience pregnancy.
I credited in a prior blog an article expressing women’s 80 percent advantage in transmitting intelligence; and this seems humbling, but it also gets men ‘off the hook’. It is another reason that our traditions of treating women as ladies and daughters as princesses is exquisitely justified. They bare so much of the responsibility of our societies. It is another reason to totally reject any society that treats them as inferior. My dad, a pediatrician, who worked with women as mothers everyday, once remarked ‘Why do women want equality, when they are already superior?’
It’s that old conflict of equality of rights vs. outcomes. Mixing the two confuses both issues. Recognizing the specialness of both genders allows us to gauge our actions accurately in order to allow equality of rights to shine. This whole unisex mode as if we should all be like earthworms, and of both sexes is a bit ‘worm pie in the sky’ and kinda reminds me of a mashup of two childish rhymes: Birdie, Birdie in the sky… and Nobody loves me; everybody hates me, might as well go eat worms…
Anyone getting the message, here? My daughter, engineer graduate of MIT; yes I am so blessed with you and your success …
