Let me introduce you all to Paco and his merry band of thieves. His plumed hoard of miscreants roost on a large tree, a few blocks away. In the mornings I can see them stretching-out their wings as they ready themselves for the day's adventures. In a flash, all eight of them take flght and squack their way out yonder. But by clock-work around sunset, they all descend for a greedy dinner of Royal Palm Nuts, and tender shoots sprouting on the trees in front of our home.

Why, it's our brand-spanking-new Maryland 3rd Congressional District, of course!
Under our governor's gracious plan, the whole state is sliced and diced into a eight of *er* creative districts.
Contrary to common belief, once you get away from Baltimore City, and Montgomery and Prince George's Counties (the counties bordering D.C.), Maryland is quite a conservative state. The problem is, that these three jurisdictions hold the population's center of gravity. Thus, Demoncrats outnumber Republicans 6-to-4 Statewide. So what to do, to strangle the Republican minority into quiescence? Why - Use Baltimore City, Montgomery and Prince George's, as a Demoncratic ATM Vote Machine, of course.
In the case of the 3rd Congressional District, Conservative Baltimore County and Anne Arundel County (Annapolis), is clumped with reliably Demoncratic Montgomery County and Baltimore City. But to do so, the resulting district map must do sinewy calisthenics beyond comprehension. It is so distorted, that the district's western border won't even fit in its official government issued map (See Above).
Baltimore City is sliced and diced also by District 2:
and District 7:
I could go on and rant about the other districts, but I'm gonna let you go with the 4th District. A district that cuts a slippery path from Demoncratic Prince George's County and marries it with Conservative Anne Arrundel County. It's of cold comfort to report that the 4th's, offending borders run just half a mile outside from my home:
Thank-you Sir - May I have another!

Facebook approaches us with the seductive convenience of making available to us free instant communication that would otherwise be impossible. It allows us to interconnect with others but at a double-edged unnoticed price. Kind of like the way a tapeworm makes its host feel temporarily satiated and happy while sucking the life-force out of you.Evil approaches man, masked in countless respectable and seductive disguises.
Dietrich Bonhoffer 1943.
Well, Facebook is collecting all comments in its vast network that contain the word "Obama". It is busily cataloging and assembling them in one convenient page for dissection amongst those in the know.
Those with an account can happily see your's and your friends comments on our Commander-in-Chief in this page: HERE.
What an evil and seductive tapeworm, that you are, FaceBook.

Sunday, September 11, 2011
And here I was thinking that we were somberly remembering the atrocities that occurred one bright Tuesday morning, ten Septembers ago, but Nooo. We are supposed to rejoice on our Apa and Noni.
Watch aghast, what our President, hath wrought on this sacred martyr's day: HERE
Some have quipped that for the last three decades National Grandparents Day has become a tradition on our land. That's wonderful. My point is that our C-in-C is purposely obfuscating, diluting and taking away from the central meaning of what September 11th has become to our nation. Let's go back to the archives of The White House and see what the Executive of another era did on an exactly similar situation: http://georgewbush-whitehouse.archives.gov/news/proclamations/
What did our President do on Sunday September 11th, 2005?
He issued a proclamation declaring Three Days of Prayer and Remembrance. During which, he stated:
He also declared this day Patriots Day 2005. And what's the purpose of this day?During these Days of Prayer and Remembrance, we give thanks to the Almighty for our freedom, and we acknowledge our dependence on the Giver of this gift. Four years after September 11, 2001, we remember the lives lost and pray for God's continued blessings on their families and our Nation.
A look on the list of Imprimatur-giving Presidential Proclamations, does not bring attention to National Grandparents Day, nor other distractions.As we mark this solemn anniversary, I call upon all our citizens to express their patriotism and their gratitude for the blessings of liberty. By flying the flag, supporting military families, and teaching young people about our founding ideals, we honor the lives lost on September 11, 2001, and since, and we help preserve our freedom for future generations.
Contrast that to this year's National Gramps/Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance Day.
But first, Pelosi's Congress Changes Patriots Day to include a National Day of Service in which according to THE LAW:
11th National Day of Service and Remembrance
Please note the mandate for Community-Based Organizations, i.e. funnel our remembrance activities towards leftist structured organizations.
But back to our President, now that he has his leftist mandated by law he issues his first proclamation: http://www.whitehouse.gov/the-press-office/2011/09/09/presidential-proclamation-patriot-day-and-national-day-service-and-remem
And what does he asks from us to do on Sept 11th?
Whatever happened toIn the days to come, I ask all Americans to join together in serving their communities and neighborhoods in honor of the victims of the September 11 attacks. Today and throughout the year, scores of Americans answer the call to make service a way of life -- from helping the homeless to teaching underserved students to bringing relief to disaster zones. I encourage all Americans to visit Serve.gov, or Servir.gov for Spanish speakers, to learn more about service opportunities across our country.
Then of course, he further misdirects us on our focus of the day by pointing our how much we must love our Grandparents that day. A minor point perhaps, but purposeful none-the-less.honor those lost by expressing patriotism and gratitude for blessings of liberty. By flying the flag, supporting military families, and teaching young people about our founding ideals?

By now, you have all gnashed your teeth at The Teamsters latest example of thuggish language:
An exuberant example of stump-speech rhetoric? Perhaps. But when the Teamsters talk like that, I listen. For I remember well what happens when their hate speech (EXACTLY like Hoffa's) and followed by their direct action, murdered 96 innocents souls.
I was back home for the holidays December 31st, 1986. Teamsters Local 901 was shaking-down the old Dupont Plaza Hotel for a labor contract for the hotel's maintenance employees. In typical Teamster bluster, they took out radio spots, condemning Dupont Plaza's management with the most vile and intimidating language. In their spots, they actually threatened them to give-in or they would be taken-out. Just like Hoffa did this weekend. I remember well those spots, for they ran contrary to all the good Christmas cheer of the season.
Early in the afternoon, of New Year's eve, all maintenance employees get together in one of the hotel's meeting-rooms. They get riled-up by their shop-stewards, and overwhelmingly vote for STRIKE. As the rabid mob files out of the meeting-room. One goon lights-up a can of Sterno under one of the fabric chairs, and well this is what happened:
Given the radio threats to blow-up the hotel, and their fiery stance with the local press in days prior to the conflagration. Once they did blow up the hotel, The Teamsters sent in their heavy hitters from CONUS, to expertly confuse and obfuscate the sad trail of events. The center-leftist governor quickly dropped the matter, and In the end, a lowly lackey took the fall.
Anyways, from that point on, I do take keen attention to the Teamsters and their happy remarks.

To this day, I have no idea what ever happened to Gustavocomemoco and his dietary habits. But to judge by the picture below, I never would have guessed that his child one day would have the First Lady visit his day-care center.

Where do I begin to unpack this delusional pack?
At (0:48) He states:
Oh I dunno, Let's take this in for perspective: It took from Washington to Reagan to make a $1-T debt. It took from Reagan to Clinton to reach our $5-T debt-point. It took eight years for Bush-43 to rack-up another $5-T. And in your short 30-Month rule, you''ve burnt through another $5-Trillion.that’s the debate about how to tackle the problem of our deficits and our debt.
Then at (1:00) he blunders:
We won't fall for those putative cuts that are projected 10-years into the future and are never carried-out by future Congresses. Tip O'Neil snookered Reagan into it. Same thing happened to Bush-41 back in 1990.It means taking on spending in our domestic programs and our defense programs
Followed at (1:05) by this little gem:
Oh, like the way you raided $500-Billion out of Medicare in order to Rube-Goldberg your 'Bammy-Care?It means addressing the challenges in programs like Medicare so we can strengthen those programs and protect them for future generations.
On his next breath at (1:08):
Spending on the tax code. Since when does the tax code spend? Tax Breaks don't spend, your profligate pork does! And lay-off envy hatred and resentment. They are all negative demonic emotions, used by Socialists to pit one group against the other.And it means taking on spending in the tax code – spending on tax breaks and deductions for the wealthiest Americans.
At (1:41) the De-Barred Constitutional Lawyer blurts:
Yes - The State of Illinois Bar summarily took-away his and Michelle's law licenses in 2008. To date, no credible journalist wants to look into it. But you must have done something REALLY bad to be thrown-out as an officer of the court. But I digress. Section 4 of the 14th Amendment to our Constitution reads:And we agree that we simply cannot afford to default on our national obligations for the first time in our history;
The validity of the public debt of the United States, authorized by law... shall not be questioned.
Meaning that come hell or high-water, The U.S. WILL NOT DEFAULT [PERIOD]. And if we do default, it is because you Mr. President, made a unilateral decision to question the validity of public debt against The Constitution that you swore to uphold and defend.
At (1:51) he goes on:
Sure and with your constant attacks on the wealth generators of this country, what else do you expect other than "Growth-less Recoveries" as far as the eye can see. Knock-it-off with YOUR games Mr. President.With a recovery that’s still fragile and isn’t producing all the jobs we need, the last thing we can afford is the usual partisan game-playing in Washington
Then he has the gall at (2:02):
Translation: When we raise your taxes, we can go on spending some more. And wasn't that the purpose of TARP? To lay pipe, build bridges, roads and sewers? If you didn't piss it all away on your cronies to advance your Socialist agenda, we'd have something to show for it for future generations.By getting our fiscal house in order, Congress will be in a stronger position to focus on some of the job-creating measures I’ve already proposed – like putting people to work rebuilding America’s infrastructure, or reforming our patent system so that our innovators and entrepreneurs have a greater incentive to generate new products, or making college more affordable for families.
Businesses are holding-back because of all the uncertainty that you've injected into our regulatory and fiscal systems - YOU DOLT! And we will only default only because you yourself will be committing an impeachable offense - SCARE-MONGERER!And businesses that may be holding back because of the uncertainty surrounding the possibility of a default by the U.S. government...
I could go on, but this entry is getting too long for my catharsis. There are many other nits to pick on this. Can you add some of your own?

Take a good look at the third paragraph of the above letter. In it, Delta states clearly that it is complying with Saudi law in being an agent of discrimination against Jews. In other words: Don't blame us, we're just following orders.
Well, that reminds me of Greyhound Bus old policy in Mississippi. Once upon a time, whenever its buses crossed the state-line into Mississippi, all Blacks were forced to the back of the bus. In full compliance with Mississippi State Law. In other words: Don't blame us, we're just following orders.
Well you know, someone should remind Delta that The Civil Rights Act of 1964 has been the law of the land for almost fifty years.
Its full text is: HERE
Section 201(a) of the Act reads:
Section 201(c)(3) further reads:All persons shall be entitled to a full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages and accommodations of any place of public accommodation, as defined in this section, without discrimination or segregation on the grounds of race, color, RELIGION, or national origin.
Last time I checked, Delta is an American-flagged carrier engaging in both interstate and in between U.S. and foreign countries. And as such would be in violation of this, our law of the land.For the purposes of this section “commerce” means travel, trade, traffic, commerce, transportation, or communication among the several States,… or between any foreign country…
If the Saudis want to keep their discriminating there's little we can legaly do. After all, they are a sovereign country. Delta, on the other hand as a U.S. Corporate Citizen is obliged to comply with the laws of our nation, partnership alliances be dammed.

Well, today the Patriot Reauthorization Act was signed into law by an Autopen. So, not only we now have a machine that makes our C-in-C speak on queue, but now we have a machine that signs constitutionally mandated documents for him too.
Lets give a warm welcome to AOTUS, or is it APEOTUS, to the Presidential stable of electronic little tyrants.

The salaries of the state legislature in Maryland is the second highest in the nation. On top of that, and (while the legislature is in session), they get reimbursed by us
Well, the local Fox affiliate has dug into the legislators' personal expenses and here's the blood-pressure boiling reportage:
Now we live in a rather small state, at commuting distance to Annapolis from most parts of the state. Unless you live in the extreme parts of Western or Southern Maryland, you are at most an hour or hour-and-a-half from the State Capitol. Legislators from Cumberland or Crisfield trully need lodging in Annapolis during working days. But what about anywhere else?
Take my representative delegation of
Costing us a grand total (give or take) of $76,000 for them to pyjama party 30-miles from their homes.
If your live in the ex-Free State of Maryland, go to this link: HERE and download your lawmakers' expense tables. Call them and register your dour displeasure. The rest of the reportage is: HERE

No - Wait. That's most definitely what the current administration is NOT inflicting upon us, is it? But I digress. Socialists and Communists in the U.S. always wanted to openly celebrate their Autocratic Saint's Natal Day. But let's face it, he and the movement that he has engendered, suffers from a bit of Public Relation Image problem. Just a little:
The above martial display was held just this week in Havana, Cuba. BTW, at (3:30), you will see a unit of the Youth Worker's Army. That's what then Sen. Obama referred to as his Civilian Defense Force. In otherwords, civilian
But again, I digress.
Given the bad PR that Communism had in this country, and given their wishes to celebrate their dear saint's B-Day, why not drop the Blood Red, and adopt the Alfalfa Green? Instead of calling it Lenin's B-Day, why not call it Earth Day? Just hide the mass murder under the surface, and elevate Gaia as the one being honored. Before you know it, the masses will be led on the soft path to Communism. Those in the know will still secretly know who's really is been honored and who's final goal is being reached for. The masses just like cattle won't know where they are led-to, until the chute makes a final left turn at the abattoir.
You don't believe me? Earth Day is a holiday begun by Democratic Sen. Gaylord Nelson in 1970 to keep anti-capitalist sentiment going after the Vietnam War ended.
So on behalf of this little 'Rican: Happy Birthday Dear Leader *er* I mean... Gaia.
Because as you know, all the liddle child'en looove T-34's.
See - That wasn't that bad. Communists can be so adorable and cute too!
As I was saying, last Friday evening, the weather was lousy about 38º and under a driving unrelenting rain. Still about three dozen patriots converged at the 7100 Block of Georgia Avenue N.W. and for three hours brought cheer to our soldiers and loved ones.
Below are a few snaps of my good friends: The Colonel, and Patriot Sister One.
Did I tell you that it was raining hard and cold?
There were two highlights to the night. The first was when a recovering soldier and two of his buddies came zooming out of the hospital and to the corner of the gate in wheelchairs, convoy-style. Their mission: To await for the delivery of pizza. YUMMM! Needless to say, they were instant chick-magnets.
The other, was to see the reaction of those inside the returning bus filled with wounded warriors and their families, out for a free steak dinner. Please read the linked report: HERE.
And, for The Freeper's perspective on that evening's activities, their post is: HERE.

Last week, a local San Diego news reporter interviewed Al Hallor, Assistant San Diego Port Director for the U.S. Customs and Border Protection. During the interview the subject casually turned to whether WMD's have ever been intercepted at the local port. That's when the Public Affairs Officer monitoring the interview put in the breaks on the interview.
It is strange that no major newspaper in this country has picked-up this bit of news. The San Diego Tribune is all mum about the subject. To get the report, one has to go to Britain and its Daily Mail for coverage. Report: HERE.
The spin, and tergiversant obfuscation begins: Oh he was just nervous on camera, I'm sure of it.
The original interview is below:
The follow-up report is below (Please click on the image, as there is no embed code).
Move along and go back to sleep; for there is nothing to see here.
