As stated last night, I did go to the Dallas Tea Party.
Didn’t really stay all that long, though – and 25% of the time I was there was spent working on a meatball sub from Subway.
In fact, if you want a more comprehensive (not much more, but he’s at least got multimedia) idea of some of the happenings, go visit His Randomness over at Random Numbers.

Denizens, between a full day of work, a couple of hours spent at the Dallas Tea Party, and having to do a couple chores upon arrival at the Domecile, I don’t have much gumption to write tonight.
Time permitting, tomorrow I might have an overview of the soirée. Maybe.

I’ll give him this – Big Dickhead Perry is doing his damndest to rehabilitate his image to us conservatives.
Gov. Rick Perry joined state Rep. Brandon Creighton and sponsors of House Concurrent Resolution (HCR) 50 in support of states’ rights under the 10th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
“I believe that our federal government has become oppressive in its size, its intrusion into the lives of our citizens, and its interference with the affairs of our state,” Gov. Perry said. “That is why I am here today to express my unwavering support for efforts all across our country to reaffirm the states’ rights affirmed by the Tenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. I believe that returning to the letter and spirit of the U.S. Constitution and its essential 10th Amendment will free our state from undue regulations, and ultimately strengthen our Union.”
Perry continued: “Millions of Texans are tired of Washington, DC trying to come down here to tell us how to run Texas.”
Nice going, Governor. Keep it up and I might have to think twice about turning my back on you like I did here.

The Department of Homeland Security is warning law enforcement officials about a rise in “rightwing extremist activity,” saying the economic recession, the election of America’s first black president and the return of a few disgruntled war veterans could swell the ranks of white-power militias.
A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines “rightwing extremism in the United States” as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.
I see. So the Founding Fathers were themselves radicals & extremists.
Nice to know I’m in such honored company.
(U) Rightwing extremism in the United States can be broadly divided into those groups, movements, and adherents that are primarily hate-oriented (based on hatred of particular religious, racial or ethnic groups), and those that are mainly antigovernment, rejecting federal authority in favor of state or local authority, or rejecting government authority entirely. It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration.
Anti-government? Anti-this government. Check.
Prefer state/local government over some tin-plated bureaucrat with a pathetic comb-over trying to tell me how to live my life, what vehicle I can drive, how much gas mileage it has to get, how much so-called “pollutants” it dumps into the atmosphere, paper or plastic, etc? Check.
Opposition to immigration? Yeah, the illegal variety. Check.
Opposition to abortion?. Yeah, absolutely. Check.
Yep, guess that makes me an “extremist”.
Or one majorly pissed-off, had-it-up-to-here with-a-bunch-of-socialist-pussies American citizen.

In case you’ve been under a rock, Captain Richard Phillips was rescued by the Navy Seals.
Damn skippy, men. Good work.
But of course, Obambi the Incompetent had to drag this out beyond where it needed to go:
President Barack Obama in a statement said, “I share the country’s admiration for the bravery of Captain Phillips and his selfless concern for his crew. His courage is a model for all Americans.”
Obama had given standing orders for a rescue effort if Phillips’s life was in danger, Gortney said.
Oh, for fuck’s sake, Jugears. Whatever happened to “Sniper? Target. Go”? Did this FBI team or whatever really have to spend nearly four friggin’ days wasting time with these chickenshits?
They’re pirates, for crying out loud! Standing orders should be to shoot on sight!
But I guess that wouldn’t be in line with the fucking Geneva Conventions the leftards get hard-ons to quote, y’know?

The Department of “Well, It Worked For Goebbels″ brings us this little bit of hilarity from NewsBusters.
If you want to argue that Rush Limbaugh the radio sensation will soon crumble and fail, that he’s headed for a “last hurrah,” would you sign up as your expert….an Air America executive? That’s what media critic Michael Wolff did in a Vanity Fair article on Limbaugh, “the man who ate the GOP.”
More to the point, I might ask the question: “Haven’t they been spewing this bullshit for the past 20 years?”
I mean, this blind little band of piggies is getting pretty desperate to find that truffle, isn’t it?

Now after the Sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to look at the grave. And behold, a severe earthquake had occurred, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled away the stone and sat upon it. And his appearance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. The guards shook for fear of him and became like dead men.
The angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid; for I know that you are looking for Jesus who has been crucified. He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead; and behold, He is going ahead of you into Galilee, there you will see Him; behold, I have told you.”
2000 years later, it still isn’t about bunny rabbits (real or chocolate), baby chicks or colored eggs.
Happy Easter, Denizens. He is risen.

I found this interesting little tidbit about the Dallas County jail a couple days ago.
A potentially dangerous situation in the Dallas County jail was averted in February after a young boy wandered away from his mother and wound up in a secure area where prisoners were working.
On Feb. 16 around 9 pm, a group of inmates in the Lew Sterrett Justice Center kitchen told sheriff’s jail staff that a child was standing in a hallway unattended, according to sheriff’s reports I finally got my hands on.
A malfunctioning elevator appears to be the culprit, although the reports don’t make it very clear. It looks like you need a key to take the elevator from the visitors area down to the kitchen below. But this child somehow managed to do it. A work order was issued for the elevator, according to the reports.

Boy, those warrior stud muffins at Al-Obambi really strike fear into the hearts of those Somali pirates, don’t they?
NAIROBI, April 11 (Reuters) – Pirates seized a U.S.-owned and Italian-flagged tugboat with 16 crew on Saturday in the latest hijacking in the busy Gulf of Aden waterway, a regional maritime group said.
Andrew Mwangura, of the Mombasa-based East African Seafarers’ Assistance Programme, said the crew were believed to be unharmed on the tugboat, which he added was operated from the United Arab Emirates.
“This incident shows the pirates are becoming more daring and violent,” Mwangura told Reuters by phone.
Offhand, I’d say that they’ve become…emboldened…by the lack of a strong leader at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
(And I despise using that word, because when talking foreign affairs, it seems to be the only word that Sean Hannity knows. I mean, it seems that every other word out of Hannity’s mouth is emboldened when it comes to foreign policy, y’know?)
Sorta reminds me of FP under…oh, say…Peanuthead:
One thing Carter did not have was foreign policy expertise. As a result, he relied on his foreign policy advisers, Secretary of State Cyrus Vance (who was a partner in a major New York law firm) and National Security Adviser Zbigniew Brzezinski, a professor at Columbia University. The results were disastrous. Under Carter, the US allowed the Shah of Iran to fall and the Islamist Ayatollahs to take over. The Soviets invaded Afghanistan and Carter sent aid to the anti-Soviet Islamists. He drastically slashed support for South Korea. These policies are still causing repercussions thirty years later with Iran and North Korea both developing nuclear weapons and al-Qaeda being based in Afghanistan.
Remind you of anyone in particular?

They’re calling this “not a bow”
Yeah, and I’m Brad Pitt.

Item: The crew, possibly
realizing remembering what happened the last time a Demoscummic excuse-for-a-president dealt with a hostage situation, retake the vessel themselves, although the vessel’s captain reportedly remains a hostage.
Us 48-percenters could prob’ly learn a thing or two here.

Don’t have time to do much right now, Denizens, so here’s something I glommed onto, courtesy of Gateway Pundit.

The Department of Absurdity apparently can’t wait to bring us this story.
Seems the Detroit brownshirts, having recently vanquished the politically-late-yet-unlamented Kwame Kilpatrick, needed a new target on which to practice their particular brand of Draconianism.
Enter the Pillow Fighters.
Police in Detroit have ruffled some feathers after they cracked down on an organized pillow fight at a downtown park.
The Detroit News reports that police at Campus Martius Park prevented the feathery fight Saturday by disarming pillow-toting participants.
What was that old canard? Something about not bringing a pillow to a gun fight…?
The bout was part of a worldwide event organized on social networking Web sites. Other bouts included one on Wall Street, where hundreds pounded each other in front of the New York Stock Exchange.
Michael Davis of Hamtramck, Mich., said police confiscated the 32-year-old man’s pillows but returned their cases. He said he was told that he needed a permit.
Participant Scott Harris added that as far as he knows it’s “not illegal to own a pillow.”
“When pillows are outlawed, only outlaws will have pillows.”
Detroit police spokesman James Tate said the issue wasn’t about the bout but the mess it would have created.
I call bullshit. Your politicians spew that much crap every day, and you morons do nothing. What’s their excuse?
I mean, pillows don’t kill people, people do.
