YOU MUST RESPECT MY AUTHORITEH!!!
It’s funny when it’s just a kid in a cartoon.
It isn’t when it’s a supposedly grown man armed with a badge and a gun.
Here’s the story. A female in a van full of kids who clearly is not compliant with an officer on a traffic stop for going 71 in a 55mph zone. OK, most if not all of us have done that, but for that, she should be subject to penalties of law. But that’s where it all goes wrong.
Here’s the dash cam video of the incident shown in a news report.
Bottom line… she did wrong. She didn’t just speed, she also evaded arrest. What she did NOT do was endanger lives… for that we can thank the police, who crashed the windows and then fired on a minivan they knew carried five children, the youngest 5 years old.
A few questions for the cops there:
- What possessed you to think the BEST option was shooting at a van full of children because their mom evaded a traffic ticket?
- Is there just a little bit of a chance your reaction was disproportionate to the problem?
- Did it occur to you a minivan with a huge full luggage rack probably wasnt going to blend in and disappear?
- If many municipalities disallow high speed chases in such cases… does firing wildly in public thoroughfare sound a lot safer?
- Did you consider we don’t give the death penalty for evading arrest at a traffic stop, much less being in the car with someone that tries?
- Is the entire concept of “appropriate force” foreign to you?
- Is there maybe a chance your out of control rage had more to do with someone failing to respect YOUR authority than the fact they broke a law?
Oh. One more question. WHAT THE HELL WERE YOU THINKING?
There is no chance what appears on that clip is an appropriate response by law officers. Yes, cops have dangerous jobs. Yes, they should be paid more than rock stars and guys who read movie scripts. So should nurses and school teachers… but that’s another post. You took the job. You have to abide by the rules.
Bottom line you take on an awesome responsibility when you are issued a badge and a gun. We the public do not ASK, we REQUIRE that those carrying that authority be the adult in the discussion, not tyrannical obnoxious reckless trigger-happy maniacs.
If that’s an issue, no problem, just turn in the badge and the gun. You’re too stupid to carry either.
Let’s face it, the word just doesn’t mean what it used to. Words lose meaning when they start getting applied loosely, and thanks to the left, “HATE” no longer has the meaning shown in the dictionary.
The dictionary definition is as follows:
But that was then and this is now. Today the word is used freely as a label to describe any opinion or even mild disagreement expressed by the right of which the left does not approve.
Pretty much anything you say today may be “hate” speech to some folks;
“I disagree with Obama’s position on gun control.”
“Oh that’s just HATE speech.”
“No, I just think he isn’t considering the 2nd amendment.”
“That’s ALL you fucking racist teabaggers do… HATE HATE HATE.”
“What? I can’t disagree with the guy on policy?
“You just like to HATE because he’s black!”
As it appears to have obtained a totally different meaning than it used to have, be it known that from this day forward we have retired the word “HATE” and are replacing it with a new word that may be used (liberally) to encompass the new connotation.
The replacement word will be SCREWMEINTHEASS.
It may sound a little crass, but trust me, it’s gonna make discussions with liberals a helluvalot more fun to watch.
ARMED FETUS KILLS NINE
Today an armed fetus went on a rampage during a liquor store holdup and killed nine people in cold blood… finally providing a long-sought rationale for people that bring up capital punishment every time they get cornered in a discussion about abortion.
Police are distributing the following sketch of the armed culprit, who as shown in the drawing is armed with an AR-15.
DC SHOOTER ARMED WITH ASSAULT CAR
Police are still looking into the background of the shooter who rammed the gates 3 blocks from the White House and led DC authorities on a chase before dying in a hail of bullets as she exited the car.
The woman was armed with a black Infiniti. Leading Democrats are hopeful this incident will lead to meaningful legislation prohibiting civilians from possessing dangerous assault cars, but spokesman for the Brady campaign said “We will never get common sense legislation passed while Congress is in the pocket of the maniacs at AAA”.
PRESIDENT BOLDLY PROTECTS MONUMENT FROM THOSE IT HONORS
President Obama boldly saved money by paying to erect barricades and post guards to prevent 90+ yr old WW2 vets from creating excessive wear on sidewalks at the WW2 memorial with wheelchairs and walkers.
Other cost saving measures included barricades at scenic overlooks. “The government is shutdown. NOBODY will look at rivers or fall colors… and don’t THINK about viewing our purple mountains majesty or amber waves of grain”.
LACK OF FUNDS FORCES SECURITY CHANGES
The TSA has announced that due to budget cuts they will no longer have the manpower to keep us safe from terrorist nuns, old ladies and children in wheelchairs. Passengers will be met at the gate with a sign that says
“For security purposes we request you grope each other before boarding“.
In keeping with standard TSA protocol… Muslims are exempt.
Let’s face it… the news media quit carrying “news” years ago
My snippits above are every bit as newsworthy as anything you’ll see from the major networks. The major news providers are more interested in cheerleading for the president than actually providing news… so my blog has as much if not more journalistic integrity.
News programs have become the place journalism goes to die. If they’d get off their butts and act like journalists a LOT of our nation’s problems would go away because those causing them would cease to have cover.
We’ve had over a dozen “government shutdowns” in my lifetime
- In NONE of them (until now) did the president refuse to negotiate.
- In NONE of them (until now) were monuments barricaded to prevent visitation.
But President Stompyfoot is paying people to barricade access to the WW2 Memorial, supposedly due to the government shutdown.
This is an outside, open air memorial viewed from the sidewalk. It’s normally open 24/7. It costs extra money to block it off and man the barricades… but to make a point he’s paying people to do exactly that in a childish attempt to make the shutdown hurt.
Meanwhile, the barricade erected at the WW ONE memorial is a single panel. Why? No WW1 veterans trying to visit. He couldn’t cause any pain, so why bother?
At the same time, to create maximum irritation the president closed down:
- Scenic overlooks on the George Washington Parkway
- Claude Moore Colonial Farm (privately funded and staffed, but on Federal land)
- The BUS TURNAROUND LANE by G Washington’s Mt Vernon home
It’s not even moderately plausible that there is a reason that doesn’t include a petty vindictive little president playing politics. Seriously… the government is shutdown, so people can’t look at the Potomac River? What’s next? Do we close the Grand Canyon to viewers?NEWSFLASH, Mr President
Picking a fight with 90+ year old men doesn’t make you look manly. It doesn’t make you look statesmanlike. It just reminds us you sent more men to harass honored US veterans than you did to aid a US Ambassador attacked by radical Islamic militants at Benghazi.
Shame you aren’t as proactive against our foes as you are our heroes. These vets spent their youth storming the beaches at Normandy, Iwo Jima and Tarawa, not smoking dope with “the Choom Gang” like you.
Show them the respect they EARNED.
Conclusion: Time to Put on Your BIG GIRL Panties, Barry
You openly stated you will NOT negotiate, since after all, the American people elected YOU?
Really? How do you think our congressmen got into office, a lottery? Get off your high horse, quit harassing American heroes who went to war to defend freedom, and go negotiate with the elected representatives who are doing EXACTLY the job we elected them to do. The House is the ONLY elected body in this fiasco that’s shown willingness to negotiate. You and Harry Reid have both openly declared you won’t.
Guess what… that makes this shutdown YOUR fault
Now grow the fuck up. Get to the negotiating table like a big boy. Stomping your petulant little foot at the American public won’t cut it. We aren’t impressed.
And before you go, go tell a WW2 veteran you deeply apologize for being an unpatriotic jackass.
Wendy Davis is getting hundreds of thousands of dollars from out of state
FIFTY SEVEN % of her donors are outside the state. Yeah, they’re serious about turning Texas blue. They don’t hesitate to pay to see it happen.
If that happens, the electoral votes of this state will ensure that Obama style candidates hold national office for the rest of our lives. THAT would affect YOU.
Wendy has to be stopped NOW, while we can
As Ayn Rand said… You can ignore politics, but you can’t ignore the result of ignoring politics.
WHY DOES THE RIGHT LOSE ELECTIONS?
I shared a link for her Senate opponent yesterday on Facebook, and it wasn’t shared by anyone. Why? Folks on the right (except me) are nothing if not polite. If they post a political donation site on their timeline it might (horrors!) offend someone.
The left has no revulsion at offending. They don’t fear getting involved. They want their agenda implemented. Period.
We’re all in the same boat
If your oar isn’t moving, someone else’s is. Oh the boat still moves, but you have zero effect on where it goes. You’re just along for the ride and someone else determines your fate.
They say there’s three kinds of people:
- Those that make things happen
- Those that watch things happen
- Those that wonder what happened
If you’d like to be in the first group…
here’s the donation link for an outstanding conservative ready to replace Davis in the TX Senate.

SCENE 1: 13 Shot in Navy Yard
Monday everyone watched breathlessly as news reports followed a shooting in a military facility where 13 (including the gunman) lost their lives in a hail of gunfire. Journalists, Democrats and other leftwing creatures quickly began to soberly debate the whether to blame AR15s or the NRA for the violence.
The only one shot with an AR15 was the gunman, but that point eluded those who mounted podiums to call for a ban on “military style assault weapons”. There was great consternation when it turned out the guy used a shotgun. Ruined the narrative, but the talk traversed to a mythical instance of the gunman TRYING to buy an AR15 and getting turned down. A triumph for gun laws at last! That story, like the AR15 he supposedly used, proved false too.
Still the calls for gun control rage on, fueled by the Navy Yard shooting, where unfortunately we had Marines who could have returned fire… had they not been disarmed by a politically correct policy.
SCENE 2: 13 Shot in Chicago Park
Apparently the shooting in Chicago will not be the primary focus for the gun-grabber crowd, as shootings in Chicago are actually rather commonplace. Chicago has 2 claims to fame on that score. It is the gun control capitol of the US. It is also the shooting crime capitol of the US… per the FBI.
Despite having a virtual ban on firearms in the hands of civilians, in 2012 there were more shooting deaths in Chicago than US troops lost in Afghanistan. So if the gun control crowd were swayed by actual statistics they’d quit telling us citizens need to be subject to Chicago style gun laws and just issue all non-criminals a select fire M-16 and body armor. That model is apparently safer than their Chicago tactics.
Just another note on failed gun laws…
The guy Chicago elected to clean up the problem in 2011 was Obama’s advisor Rahm Emmanuel. He’s implemented more gun control, and the crime wave increased massively. But hey, why pay attention to reality?
Gun grabbers have their idea of how things *should* be, and they are never deterred by pesky little things like “facts”.
Today on Twitter I was discussing the fact that gun free zones are a magnet for mass shooting. I ran into a TFI (that’s “total fucking idiot”) named Rob Tessaro, who used to work for Brady’s org, and now according to his Linked-In profile is President at Safe School Technologies. So he isn’t just a Koolaid drinker, he peddles the stuff.
At one point he claimed (and I quote, cut and paste) “John Lott admitted fabiracting statistics”. [Spelling is his, don't blame me.]
— Rob Tessaro (@RobTessaro) September 16, 2013
He was asked to back his claim, and he supplied names of OTHERS who say Lott fabricated statistics , but oddly couldn’t offer anything that verified Lott admitted to fabricating (or fabiracting) statistics.
So Tessaro, when you find this on your next Google vanity search, I’m still laughing at the sheer stupidity of fabricating a claim about someone admitting to fabricating a claim.
Congrats: In my opinion you are the biggest idiot on Twitter, Rob Tessaro.
By the way… if this pisses you off, remember in a defamation suit, telling the truth is a great defense. But if you decide to send lawyers to harass me (ie – you tell your daddy on me), be aware that one of my FB friends is John Lott. I’d be happy to pass this on so his attorneys can play too. If so, hope you found your reference, cause it might become rather important.
Checkmate, junior. Have a nice day.
