Bar Rescue

As much as I try to avoid watching to much television, I do. With all that said, not often am I sucked into a show I get such enjoyment from as this, Bar Rescue.

A lot of it has to do with showing how some small businesses serving food are actually dangerous to its patrons.

It just interests me an thought I would share it with ya all.

NAACP, Cries to United Nations

All my life the American news media used words like "revered", respected or maybe highly regarded when referring to the NAACP (National Association of Colored People).

OK, a lot of times they get it right, but mostly I wonder what just what they are all about.

NAACP Urges U.N. to Investigate U.S. for ‘Racially Discriminatory Election Laws’

I cant remember the last time I made a comment on the Headline of a story before before presenting the story.

I mean really. Except for headline value, and getting attention from bloggers like me, what do they expect to accomplish?

To me, it is one thing to have a complaint, but go to the United Nations, as if they have any authority in our internal affairs.

I really wonder, does the average NAACP member have a clue?

( – Charging that millions of citizens, two-fifths of them black, have been denied the right to vote because of felony convictions, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People called on the United Nations this week to investigate America’s “racially discriminatory election laws.”

“Today, nearly 5.3 million U.S. citizens have been stripped of their voting rights on a temporary or permanent basis, including more than 4.4 million citizens who are no longer incarcerated,” said Lorraine Miller, who chairs the NAACP national board’s advocacy and policy committee.

NAACP Senior Vice President for Advocacy Hilary Shelton told the panel that the restrictions on voting “prevent those most in need of an advocate from the ability to elect someone who will represent their concerns: the need for a decent public education, for a health care system that addresses their specific demographic needs, as well as the creation of decent jobs, a functional criminal justice system and other basic human needs.”


Thank you Senior Vice President for Advocacy Hilary Shelton for that succinct argument in behalf of rapists, murderers and other violent felons.

I just don't buy it.

When it comes to violent crime, I am color blind.

ACLU Loves Voter fraud, Michigan

The ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) is at it again.

Going all hog wild over an check mark on Michigan ballot affirming they are a CITIZEN!!


Seems the leftist lawyer group (ACLU) believes fraudulently checking that box may cause a person wanting to vote Democrat  his/her choice might be intimidating.

Well, duh, it should.

As a taxpaying CITIZEN, Army Vet, I most certainly resent non-citizens violating our laws to potentially voiding my vote.

Secretary of state defends citizenship question on ballots

Secretary of State Ruth Johnson's office said Tuesday implementation of a new citizenship affirmation at the polls has gone "relatively smoothly" in response to a federal lawsuit challenging the ballot application question.

Johnson, a Republican, responded Tuesday to a federal lawsuit filed last week by the ACLU of Michigan, SEIU, the Ingham County clerk and others challenging her authority to ask voters to affirm their citizenship before they vote.

SEIU, Service Employees International Union

Anybody paying attention, know the connecion. Not the first time SEIU more than donated money to President Obama.

In the middle of the August primary, Johnson's office backed away from its previous instructions to deny people ballots for refusing to answer the question amid confusion about her authority to impose the question — one month after Gov. Rick Snyder vetoed a bill Johnson sought to add the citizenship question to state law.

The Detroit News

We are a nation of laws. 

With that said, I have no idea if in Michigan a law must be past for  the Secretary of State to require a a check mark on a ballot asserting citizenship.

That is all neither here or there.

Not a citizen, try to vote, deportation is in order.

CNN/MSNBC Commentator Vandalize Posters

I suppose this columnist, CNN & MSNBC commentator got tired of the power of the pen, so she took to spray paint. Vandalism is always a persuasive method to get ones point across.

No really, just had to try and get into her thought process, or lack of it.

Commentator Arrested for Defacing Anti-Jihad Subway Poster

An Egyptian-American columnist, who rose to prominence on social media last year for her commentary during the revolution in Egypt, was arrested in the Times Square subway station on Tuesday for spraying pink paint on a pro-Israel poster that calls Islamist opponents of the Jewish state “savage.”

The Metropolitan Transportation Authority had initially rejected the ads, citing their “demeaning” language. The group behind the ads, the American Freedom Defense Initiative, sued, and in July won a federal court ruling on First Amendment grounds.

Significant Taliban Attack

I really like the angle the report takes in pointing out the historic proportions of that attack, The significance was never widely reported. 

The U.S. Suffered Its Worst Airpower Loss Since Vietnam Last Week and No One Really Noticed

The Taliban attack on an air base in southern Afghanistan on Friday drew coverage for the way the insurgents cloaked themselves in U.S. army uniforms to gain a tactical advantage, but few have taken note of the historical proportions of the damage inflicted. John Gresham, at the Defense Media Network, has published a detailed account of the attack on Camp Bastion, in which two Marines were killed, six U.S. Marine Corps jet fighters were destroyed, and two more "significantly" damaged. Those facts were all carried in most reports, but if that just sounds like a typical damage report from a decade-long war, you're wrong. Gresham explains the devastating damage done to VMA-211, the name of the Marine Corps attack squadron that was most affected last week, noting that it is "arguably the worst day in [U.S. Marine Corps] aviation history since the Tet Offensive of 1968." Or you could go back even further. "The last time VMA-211 was combat ineffective was in December 1941, when the squadron was wiped out during the 13-day defense of Wake Island against the Japanese."
