SA 01FEB13 McCarthy Women AR

Its a smidgen late folks, but it’ll never get old!  Typical Liberal Democrat lunacy.  First the Administration and Congress removes most of the blocks, if not all, of women serving in front line combat; then Representative McCarthy from New York in her infinite wisdom and superior intellect with regard to all things firearms declares that women shouldn’t use AR-15s for self defense as they are not accurate enough for such a role.

Needless to say, I’m sure the women I served with in Iraq share the sentiments as this young Airman (reference photo was from an Airman guarding Sather AB Iraq circa 2006 or so).  I’m sure most of the women I know will agree with it, even if its a bit more harsh than their own.

Nope, not fear.  A pragmatic understanding of the prey/predator relationship in nature, of which mankind is a part of.

Anonymous is an interesting group of people to say the least.  Taking on Internet censorship (something I get a chuckle out of and kinda enjoy seeing), and trying to keep the flow information going.  Sadly though, this leaderless collective sometimes shows just how schizophrenic such organizations can be with regard to core values.  Most especially in the Middle East.

Anonymous is a champion of GLBT issues, yet they support an Arab Spring in which the Muslim Brotherhood is now able act with impunity to execute  homosexuals in Egypt as well as forcing women to wear veils and cease education.  Women’s rights is another thing I suspect this group supports here in the comfort of the free world, while supporting despotic Islamo-Fascists who crush women in the Middle East.  Clearly, they are just support the Islamo-Fascist terrorists as a counter cultural ‘in thing to do’ against the United States.  You don’t get this kind of schizophrenic behavior for nothing; its clearly Unity of Effort with the enemies of the US, pure and simple.

I recall another big deal with Anonymous hating the US GITMO facility due to alleged torture.  They leaked (or supported the WikiLeaks) a lot of classified documents trying to expose ‘systemic torture’ in US military facilities across the Middle East.  Ironically, those documents ended up vindicating and proving that such claims are grossly exaggerated…  But I digress.  They wanted to expose atrocities, war crimes, and the like.  Yes, those things happened (and will happen).  However, here they are taking sides with Hamas in this latest flare up of violence between Israel and Gaza, over ‘brutal treatment’ of the Palestinian people.  Really guys, for all your exposing US atrocities, you refuse to acknowledge Hamas atrocities such as this motorcycle gang dragging an alleged spy down the road?

If you are going to tout some core values against torture and atrocities, you need to expose both sides and call out even your own side.  This is why I support the Court Martial and capital punishment of those responsible for war crimes in the US (or any) military.  How about you go forth and help humanity by exposing all war criminals, including the Palestinians as well as Israelis.  Sadly enough, I have yet to see the amount of real atrocities supposedly committed by the IDF.  Why?  Because there is so much propaganda out there, especially coming from the Palestinian side of the conflict in which actors are used.  Its truly sad to see CNN lose credibility for playing such propaganda videos…  Really, Conservative bloggers shouldn’t be the only ones calling them out, Anonymous should be as well.  If the IDF is committing atrocities, find the real stuff and put it out there.  Stop feeding the world Hamas propaganda feeds like the big name news agencies keep doing.  That, and call YOUR OWN PEOPLE OUT WHEN THEY SCREW UP.  That, or drop the “we don’t forget” from your motto, because obviously your organization does indeed have a selective memory with a bias toward Left wing politics (ironically which are trying just as hard to censor the web as any Right wing side is…).

I couldn’t finish it.  I’ve been working a couple weeks on the concept, and only came up with the cliche scissors and Bill of Rights.  That, and the background is bare and I’m really running out of time to finish this cartoon…  Along with being rather angry at the whole affair.  Most recently the compromise that was not compromise…

Don’t be distracted by the contraception/abortion issue folks.  This is indeed government interference in religion, along with other past events its just a piece of whats been going on at an incredible rate the last four years.  NDAA before Christmas, SOPA/PIPA to distract us with something that had no hope of passage (tossing us a bone essentially), and now the DHHS mandating that religious organizations pay for services they have a strong moral conviction against.  Just one more nail in the coffin of Liberty that Obamacare has brought about by MANDATING how we pay for our healthcare, and what gets covered regardless of what we believe.

This is being published in honor of an organization in our community dedicated to stalking peoples chimney pipes.  They go around town, hunting for homes with outdoor boilers or fireplaces and wait to take pictures until there is a plume of smoke coming out.  Sure, it doesn’t sound bad, until you understand that the smoke is within the first hour of adding fuel.  This means they sit and wait, hence the stalking, until the property owner (or tenant) fuels the boiler.  I should also add, that in several cases, they have taken pictures of peoples roofs who HAVE OIL BOILERS.  Funny how that works.  For your review folks, I took pictures of my own outdoor coal boiler at temperature as well as a neighboring roof  with an oil boiler (and I had the courtesy to cut out any identifying structures, vehicles, etc.).

If biomass is such a caustic fuel source, then why does the EPA, and AK DEC allow 1,000,000 plus acre forest fires to rage in the summer causing PM 2.5 levels to outstrip the ENTIRE winter.  But I digress.  I should also point out that the folks seeking to ban affordable fuel in the Fairbanks Area, be they the Borough, or others, have only opacity to measure with as property owners are pretty adamant about not allowing them into their homes to monitor their fireplaces.  Yes, that is the only accurate way to measure pollutants.  But then, thats probably what they wanted from the start.  Thats why they pushed for the law to begin being enforced based on the color of the smoke coming out of your pipe, followed by how opaque it appears to be.  They wanted that fight to start incrementally, and then when the public was tired of it, then they’d offer the alternative of emissions testing…  Invading homes, requiring licenses for the affordable alternative to heating oil in the coldest state in the Union.  Yes, for many its true, burn the cheapest fuel or freeze.  Oil is the primary fuel, and also the most expensive.  Thats a fact (Fairbanks Gas records the prices in just about every corner of the FNSB.  There are a few gaps, but in general these guys have been tracking the prices since I can remember listening to the radio up here in 2004).

In honor of the Obama Administrations current priorities…  Go after the Amish for selling raw milk and homemade cheese across state lines with mall ninja SWAT officers who work for the FDA and Dept. of Agriculture; all the while letting the BATFE smuggle guns across the Southern Border with Mexico to the Zetas; all the while blaming both the small farmers and the gun owning public for crimes which they aren’t guilty of.  Its not a joke about how they go after small farmers selling raw milk as terrorists.  In each case DHS has used a 2002 anti-terror law aimed at bio weapons as a statute to shut down small farmers at gun point.

Once again, GWOT Veterans are in the cross hairs of the very government they served to protect YOUR liberties…  When you sit and read the articles, keep in mind how easy it would be to construe a wounded Veteran from recent operations in Iraq who loves to be prepared and live outdoors showing up at a surplus store.  Having been wounded, and losing limbs, they can easily be ‘profiled’ according to the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force handout as a domestic terrorist.  This after MIAC, and the DHS Report in 2008.  BOHICA!

Well, considering Prop 2 outright bans coal, and my outdoor boiler regardless of which fuel I use… And sets up police powers for the Borough to measure the moisture in your wood pile to ensure you have dry wood… As well as setting up opacity measurements for wood smoke (but doesn’t apply to any other types of smoke even though oil boilers, wood boilers, and coal boilers all produce very opaque smoke at -30 through -50 F….) in which a ‘code enforcement officer’ objectively determines if you smoke is too opaque (also, never mind the lack of daylight during winter in AK, or that its banning the most economical fuel sources at this present time requiring us to burn oil or ‘approved’ wood stoves).

All this, because the people who live in Ester literally badgered people into signing petitions at the Library and soccer practices. Yup, I can confirm that its the Ester crowd, while I running the Equinox Ultra Marathon on Ester Dome; all the Subaru’s, Volkswagens, and Audis had “Yes on 2” signs and stickers as well as the properties. Obviously, its meant to get riff-raff like my family out of town so that the folks who can afford the $20,000 Volkswagens and Audi and the fuel oil to heat their hilltop homes don’t have smell my wood or coal smoke regardless of the actual air quality (by they way, we have worse air quality in summer with our 1,000,000+ acre forest fires… but those don’t count toward ‘attainment’ or ‘non-attainment’ of PM 2.5 standards… Which is the only reason we are non-compliant, it used to be PM 10 until we obtained compliance, funny how the number moves like that!).

I borrowed Antonia Prohias’ cartoon of the sheep skin drapped over the hammer and sickle. Its the cartoon that got him kicked out of Cuba… Incidentally responsible for his employment by MAD! Magazine and the creation of “Spy Vs Spy”.

Alaska voters voted to limit our State Legislature to merely 90 days from 120 days a couple years ago.  This was in order to get them to focus on their one State Constitutional obligation, the Capitol Budget…  For the last two years in a row, they have over-run the 90 days with similar frivolous items; and saved their one job which they are legally obligated to accomplish during a regular session, for a special session.  Sure, picking the State firearm and honoring one of your colleges (and a man who did so much for Alaska) are indeed good accomplishments, if the budget was taken care of first!  To taxpayers like myself who pay you live in Juneau for 90 days, you screwed us, again.  GET THE BUSINESS DONE FIRST, frivolous feel good statehood stuff can wait for the budget!
