Apparently it really hasn’t been a good day to be a SCOTUS nominee. Unless you happen to be the rest of the country NOT sitting in front of the Senate confirmation panel. Take for instance this tidbit. Seems that the current SCOTUS wanna-be (like so many of the glow-bull warmining scientists) decided that the results of a partial-birth abortion ban study didn’t fit her (or the Progressive) agenda….so she just rewrote it to fit her needs. National Review has the details here. Or you can go here for another verison from the Houston Chronicle.
And then for Strike 2, we see here from Politico that Kagan believes that the government knows better than even each on of us when it comes to the food we put in our bodies. The hell they do!! When the government can’t get Fannie, Freddie, the Post Office, Amtrac, et al fiscally sound do you REALLY expect me to listen when they say that I can’t have my dead Angus slabs???????
One more strike and she’s gone.

While it took damn long enough to happen, happen it did. Today the Supreme Court confirmed the right each of us already knew and have known for 234 years, as Americans we DAMN SURE can own firearms for our self-defense. WND has the best coverage I found here.
In the 2008 Heller case, the court ruled that the 2nd Amendment’s right to be armed was an individual right, but that case pertained only to the District of Columbia. With today’s decision in the case brought by Otis McDonald of Chicago, the high court applied that definition to all the states as well.
“The right to keep and bear arms must be regarded as a substantive guarantee, not a prohibition that could be ignored so long as the States legislated in an evenhanded manner,” Justice Samuel Alito wrote for the majority.
Well I’ll be.
The problem I see in this is that the SCOTUS HAD to even take up this case in the first place. Clearly the progressives on BOTH sides of the ticket have derailed the Constitution enough that it takes a case like this to put the Second Amendment back where it belongs. It’s appalling what these self-righteous power whores and their willing accomplices in the lap-dog media and the “heavies” pulling enforcement via union thuggery have done to this country. They need to be thrown out the door.
I for one am glad that the SCOTUS did the right thing. This will hopefully keep us all from going “Da, comrad” anytime soon.

Doug Powers over at Michelle’s site is reporting that Robert “KKKKKKKKKKKKKKK” Byrd is dead at the age of 92.
I refer back to what my dear, sainted mother (God rest her soul) always said to me about “if you can’t say anything nice”, etc.

(Should be a hat tip here, but I don’t quite know upon whom I should bestow it, so…)
Probably gonna get a WITY™ from HDD on this one – but, what the hell, I prob’ly deserve it.
Denizens, for lo these last two years or so, you guys know I’ve been an ardent supporter of Sarah Palin.  Even when she started saying and doing things that raised the proverbial SpatulaEyebrow, I was in her corner, and would have supported her in any political venture she chose to undertake.  (And maybe the fact that she’s a hawtie with a nice rack had something to do with that.
Bite Sue me.)

Joey “BiteMe” Biden, aka Captain Gaffetastic, was at it again.
Here is video of Vice-President Joe Biden at Kopp’s Frozen Custard in the Milwaukee area, where he was appearing with Democrat Sen. Russ Feingold. The two were eating custard there, and when Biden approached the manager with some money and asked, “What do I owe you,” the manager just responded, “Lower our taxes and we’ll call it even.” Biden later jokingly called the manager a “smart-ass,” telling him, “Why don’t you say something nice?”
Biden was clearly not expecting that! Great response!
Hell, that was  nice.  My  response would started out, “Listen up, you son-of-a-crack-whore-bitch…”

For some of you using Internet Exploder, this place looks decidedly weird RightAboutNow™.
Fret not.  I’m pondering the issue EvenAsWeSpeak™.
UPDATE:  Figured it out.
Remember where I say at the bottom that the page looks best in IE when you have your display set in
Guess I wasn’t kidding, was I?
Didn’t realize it the other day, but I must have been looking at it in something other than 1280×1024.  Hence, everything shifted over to the left.
Sorta like Charlie Crist.
So, never mind.  Page stays as is, and if it looks funny to you – well, switch to Firefox.  Better browser anyway, and the page looks good in it, no matter what your machine’s resolution.

Time to start spreading more hate & discontent.

Well, if I’m to believe the reports, Stanley McChrystal is out as the top commander in Afghanistan.
Which is appropriate, quite honestly.  Fact of the matter is, even though McChrystal is bang-on right about Bambi, the UCMJ, per Blackfive, clearly prohibits what McChrystal did, which is criticize the
limp, flaccid, impotent Commander-in-Chief.
I do believe that McChrystal clearly knows what he was doing.  You can’t say what he said to a media outlet – even if it is  Rolling Stone – and not expect that the White House won’t see it.
But maybe that was Mac’s plan all along.  Either he’s so desperate for the welfare of his men that he had to find some way to get Bambi’s attention – or maybe he’s finally had enough of the Ayatollah’s dithering, dillying & dallying and just wants out.  (Yes, he could have just resigned, but this makes more of an impact, I think.)
Whatever the motivation, the action speaks to Jugears McHopenchange’s sheer inability to effectively command his forces.  The war in Afghanistan under Bambi’s oversight has turned decidedly negative.
Hussein Pasha’s surge, unlike Bush’s in Iraq, has all but failed in Afghanistan.  Bambi is not very respected, either among his troops or amongst America’s allies.  He has done nothing overseas except apologize, seemingly, for America’s mere existence to those people America rightly considers either her enemies or folks not to be trusted.
Small wonder, therefore, that most of the rest of the world believes Ear Leader to be in over his head.  Even smaller wonder that morale amongst the troops in Afghanistan appears to be at a low point.
Moral has gone down the toilet. The troops are pissed about the ROE’s, they don’t like our pussy President, and they know we are just spinning our wheels.
Indeed.  I shudder to think of the endgame under this scenario.

We take time out from my being on the disabled list to ask this quextion (a little Rush lingo, there):
As I write this (8:08 am, Central Daylight Time), it is 53 degrees in Seattle, WA.  The high there today will be 65 degrees.
The high today at Realm Headquarters™ is forecast to be 101.
The question:  WHAT THE EVER LOVIN’ HELL AM I DOING HERE?!?!?!

Started class three this week. This course is on preaching the Faith. After preaching every Sunday for the past two years plus, I am finally going to learn how to do it correctly!
As I have stated before, this is a distance ed program, and for this course, the prof has rented himself a cabin on a lake in northern Minnesota! He will spend his days trying to outsmart norther pike, or whatever fish they have up there, and reading sermons by 10 students every week. Must be tough.
Professor Havela, if you see this, I wish you a pleasant Summer!

Denizens, I’m gonna take a couple days off.  Had a migraine-type headache for a few days and the local medicine man in these parts is gonna have me hopped up on some nice (legal) shit for the next few.

(With an appropriate hat tip to Mort Walker, of course.)
Next time you say the Pledge of Allegiance, don’t do it like you did in school – by rote, etc. – e.g. “I pledge allegiance…to the flag…oftheUnitedStatesOfAmerica…”
No, say it like you bloody well mean it:
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands.
One nation under God.  Indivisible.  With liberty and justice for all.
That’s  how it should be said.  Don’t forget it, either.
Happy Flag Day, Denizens.
