Let’s Play Puffie!

WTF is Puffie, you ask?

Puffie is the latest scam circulating on the teabagger boards as a supposed “conspiracy” by the left to get the wingnuts to send lots of envelopes with white powder to elected officials so Obama can suspend the elections and become President for Lyfe. Because that would totally happen because of something this stupid. But try not to dig too deep in the logic of wingnuts, they see conspiracy everywhere because people on the radio tell them it is so.

*************** WARNING *******************

A number of ultra liberal left wing political
groups are plotting to stop the November 2010
elections in the United States.

Their plan it to have a large number of their
members play a game known as “Puffie” and to
get a large number of T-Party members to also
play “Puffie”.

The T-Party members will be fooled into thinking
they are helping their cause to SAVE the
United States by playing this game.

What the result of this game will be is to
spread fear and panic in candidates offices and
give Obama a seemingly valid reason to issue a
presidential order stopping the elections and
keeping the current politicians in office until
the US police forces can end the “Puffie” event
and arrest/prosecute those playing the game.

Of course, only Republicans, Independents, and
T-Party members will be suspects.

Here is the text of the e-mail messages that will
be sent to the T-Party members:

***** Save the United States *****

********** Play “Puffie” *********

“Puffie” was inspired by this eBook which you
can read on your Kindle (or Kindle app on your PC): http://www.amazon.com/-/dp/B003VD22UY

“Puffie” consists of many different people in
different locations sending letters to various
candidates with a threatening letter that says:
“Obama Rules” filled with some unidentified powder.

The senders of the letters mix different powders
of things found around the house and are very
careful to not leave any finger prints on the
letters and to seal the letters with a damp cloth.
Of course, use a bogus return address.

Send this message to others on your e-mail list,
along with candidates names and addresses, and
have them join the “Puffie” movement.

Watch the liberal press to see what the reaction is
from the candidates.

If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard labor.

Well, it looks like a Federal Judge put the smack down on Arizona’s fancy new Immigration law, thus the wingnuts have gone loco on the internet. One fun thing is the return of this lovely email forward, which has mutated slightly since the last time I saw it. Sort of like the flu!

If you cross the North Korean border illegally you get 12 years hard labor.
If you cross the Iranian border illegally you are detained indefinitely.
If you cross the Afghan border illegally, you get shot.
If you cross the Saudi Arabian border illegally you will be jailed.
If you cross the Chinese border illegally you may never be heard from again.
If you cross the Venezuelan border illegally you will be branded a spy and your fate will be sealed.
If you cross the Mexican borders illegally you will jailed for two years.
If you cross the Cuban border illegally you will be thrown into political prison to rot.

If you cross the United States border illegally you get:
1 – A job
2 – A driver’s license
3 – A Social Security card
4 – Welfare
5 – Food stamps
6 – Credit cards
7 – Subsidized rent or a loan to buy a house
8 – Free education
9 – Free health care
10 – A lobbyist in Washington
11 – Billions of dollars in public documents printed in your language
12 – Millions of servicemen and women who are willing to – and do – die
for your right to the ways and means of our @#$%—-ution
13 – And the right to carry the flag of your country – the one you walked
out on – while you call America racist and protest that you don’t get
enough respect.

My favorite part is how this version somehow can’t bring itself to type out Constitution and instead goes with @#$%—-ution. What the frak is that?
Oh, and you don’t get those things in America for being illegal.

Now, the lovely subtext of this email forward is that the author seems to think that all the so called “evil” countries doing horrible things to people is something to admire. So let’s be more like North Korea, America!

Resistnet and Walter Fitzpatrick – Buddies!

Walter Fitzpatrick a bigwig of the American Grand Jury, which is basically Fitzpatrick and a few other guys who sit around, declare themselves a Grand Jury, and file charges against Barack Obama and basically everyone in Congress and the Supreme Court claiming they are committing fraud and treason as Barack Obama is really one Barry Soetoro, noted guy who isn’t an American.

To succeed in this plan, Fitzpatrick must get the Monroe County Tennessee officials to agree to charge Obama with treason and fraud, because just declaring yourself a Grand Jury doesn’t mean anyone will listen to you. So you would think Fitzpatrick would have a good working relationship with the local officials. Instead, Fitzpatrick becomes increasingly belligerent against the local officials, who don’t take his hand-written claims seriously, and soon Fitzpatrick declares that the Monroe County are part of the vast conspiracy.

You might remember this whole American Grand Jury nonsense when we discovered they were being headquartered out of China of all places! And if you didn’t, now you do. but back to Fitzpatrick…

Fitzpatrick’s blog – JAG Hunter – Now moved to The JAG Hunter – contains lots of random rants at how the Man is keeping him down in his quest to overthrow the president.

On March 17, 2009 Fitzpatrick “publicly and formally” charged President Barack Hussein Obama with treason in a federal complaint filed with James R. Dedrick U.S. Attorney, Eastern District Tennessee, and Edgar Schmutzer, Dedrick’s Assistant U.S. Attorney. The only response was the Secret Service showing up at Fitzpatrick’s house two days later.

Fitzpatrick was allowed to testify for around two hours before officials in August, who declined to take action, prompting Fitzpatrick to claim they forced them out of the courthouse. Things escalated from there as Fitzpatrick became more and more convinced there was a vast conspiracy against him and his battle for the truth of Barry Soetoro exposure.

By the time April 1st 2010 came around,

Walter Fitzpatrick walked into the Monroe county courthouse in Madisonville, Tenn., and approached Grand Jury foreman Gary Pettway. “I’m charging you with official misconduct,” Fitzpatrick calmly told Pettway. “I’m placing you under arrest. You must now come with me.

He did not in fact go with Fitzpatrick, and Fitzpatrick himself got arrested and spent several days in jail:

But then the story got spread to right-wing blogs via
Carl Swensson – http://www.riseupforamerica.com/ – another American Grand Jury guy –
and a few others posted all over the place asking for help! And the call was answered…

By Darren Huff, Oath Keeper and former naval officer, who drove to Monroe County in his truck bringing along a Colt. 45 and an AK-47. The FBI was already watching Huff, and state troopers pulled him over, but didn’t arrest him, and although no violence happened that day, Huff then went on the radio declaring he had weapons and ammo with him, at which point the FBI arrested him believing he had the means and intent to cause violence in Monroe County.

Fitzpatrick is screaming that during his arraignment the government covered up evidence and a bunch of other ramblings, but none of that mattered.

Fitzpatrick was a former navy Lt. Commander who was court-martialed for financial negligence. Oddly enough, I never see any articles from the Birthers mentioning that Fitzpatrick was court-martialed, they are all too busy harping on his former rank as if that is proof enough that he is a mega-Patriot. But causing trouble in the Birther realm is not Fitzpatrick’s first brush with causing problems for people just trying to do their jobs. Fitzpatrick was being fun back in 2002, including declaring that some local officials back then weren’t properly elected (sound familiar??) and calling the cops on them, who just laughed at Fitzpatrick:

Commissioner Walt Fitzpatrick, who’s trying to dissolve the district because he claims it is collecting taxes for no purpose, dialed 911. He wanted Commissioner Steve Hoffman removed from the meeting because Hoffman didn’t file for office in the last election, in which he ran unopposed. That, says Fitzpatrick, means according to port bylaws, Hoffman’s no longer a commissioner.

Because the third commissioner, Roy Lee Anderson, didn’t show up, Fitzpatrick tried to stop the meeting – which never officially started – because it couldn’t be conducted with just one commissioner.

Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputy Dave Anderson arrived and informed the group that the county Prosecutor’s and Auditor’s offices agree that Hoffman is duly elected.

“”We’re not going to make him leave,”" Anderson said. “”He is a commissioner recognized by the county.”"

Most of the 15 citizens in attendance clapped.

Fitzpatrick claims that port bylaws, which read “”each member must be elected from each of the three membership districts,”" trump state law.

Resident Tom Carmichael agreed. “”It doesn’t make any difference what anybody says, the state, county or anybody. That (bylaws) is the controlling document, and we’re stuck with it,”" he said.

“”And you’re out,”" Fitzpatrick said to Hoffman.

Hoffman said he didn’t run for re-election because it would cost the port about $700 to be on the ballot. He checked with the county to make sure it was OK.

“”How come everyone in the county says I’m elected but you?”" Hoffman asked Fitzpatrick.

Despite the deputy’s message, Fitzpatrick still wouldn’t let the meeting proceed. Fitzpatrick, Hoffman, the residents and a few people who dropped by for the entertainment sat and argued for an hour.

—-

Hoffman told Fitzpatrick several times that he can’t appoint himself port president and chair, as he did last month. At that meeting, Fitzpatrick declared that Hoffman wasn’t duly elected and three times offered Fitzpatrick’s positions to Anderson. Anderson declined, so Fitzpatrick, the newest commissioner, claimed the posts.

Thursday, the debate deteriorated to personal shots directed at Fitzpatrick by younger residents. It elevated to the point that one man asked Fitzpatrick to step outside.

This article was discovered via Bad Fiction, which is a pretty good blog and is getting linked here.

Fitzpatrick is now declaring everyone who refuses to listen to him illegally appointed, including a new person named Angela Davis who is also ignoring Fitzpatrick. as well as screaming treason is everywhere. There is probably treason hiding under your pillow. You should go check right now. We’ll wait…

….

You back? So it wasn’t Treason, just the Tooth Fairy? At least you got a quarter for your efforts!

———

While I was typing this up, Monroe Country hit the news again for another tragic reason. Monroe County Election Commission Chairman Jim Miller was found dead inside the trunk of a burning car. Jim Miller was active in the Republican party in the country and has ties to many local officials as well as the business community. The TBI are still investigating the murder.

A site I had never heard of called RightSideNews was quick to try to blame the Democrats based solely on the fact a commentor quickly blamed the birthers.

Moments after the story broke on the Internet – a poster by the name Eugene at the following IP address 24.113.153.166 – posted the following public threat against Fitzpatrick -

“So Huff and Walter have already started their violent revenge that they promised against election and court officials in Monroe County… You have just started a civil war and we WILL destroy you thug birthers. No one will be on your side when they see what murderous thugs you are.”

The IP address is not registered to a Eugene. It is registered to someone named “John Smith” in Washington State.

Then they followed with

As a Republican Party conservative, it is ludicrous to suggest that any so-called “right-winger” was involved, though I have little doubt that every effort will be made to pin the event on some poor unsuspecting “right-winger” somewhere. This is the (MO) of today’s political left, as indicated by another left-wing poster named Jean Gibson…

“Darren Huff (a militia member of the “Restore America Plan”) (the group that sent all the threatening letters to state governers – is likely involved in this murder. I have been monitoring far right-wing militia groups for years and have noticed a LOT of threats coming from them and birthers torward politicians in Monroe County because the courts there wouldn’t hear Walter Fitzpatricks rigged jury “indictment” of Obama … Go do some research, you’ll see that Huff and Fitzpatrick threatened revenge on Monroe County. It’s not conspiracy theory it’s fact.” – 7/19/2010 3:31 PM EDT on WBIR.com

Obot’s are immediately on the story and immediately looking to pin this on a “right-winger” when in fact the man murdered was himself a “right-winger.” The facts support nothing they say or believe, but that has never interfered with Obot propaganda.

Of course, RightSideNews would enver stoop so low as to…

Many of the insane online posts from Obots have already been removed or deleted from the news blogs, and rightfully so. They are groundless and dangerous… putting many lives at risk in Monroe County, not the least of which is Fitzpatrick.

This is what corruption looks like in Obot-land.

My heart goes out to the Miller family. Mr. Miller appears to be one of the “good guys” in Monroe County. The people of Monroe County must take great care to watch as events continue to unfold.

LCDR Fitzpatrick is scheduled for trial in November, after yet another election of course. The nation will be watching to see what the “investigation” into Mr. Miller’s murder turns up.

This was a Chicago style slaying if ever there was one. The people will want to know who is really responsible and why…

Oh..yeah…I guess Obama just came to Tennessee to murder some random guy and leave him in a burning trunk. And no right wing person has killed anyone!

Mercenary ops expanding in Indonesia and Iraq

NYT: “U.S. Lifts Ban on Indonesian Special Forces Unit”

JAKARTA, Indonesia — The United States is lifting a ban of more than a decade on military contact with an elite Indonesian special forces unit implicated in past killings of civilians and other abuses, Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates announced Thursday, after meeting here with President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono of Indonesia.

The decision to lift the ban and to take steps toward training the unit, called Kopassus, was reached after intensive internal debate among the Pentagon, the White House and the State Department over whether it had truly left its brutal history behind.

“Training” usually means contractors and this case is no exception as it has already been happening in Indonesia:

Detachment 88 was established after the 2002 Bali bombings carried out by militant network Jemaah Islamiah, which firmly placed Indonesia as a frontline state in the U.S.-led “war on terror.”

But the Western funding of an anti-terrorism unit in the world’s most populous Muslim nation can be sensitive. There have been reports of U.S. intelligence officers in Jakarta helping tap cell phones and reading SMS text messages of Indonesian civilians.

A U.S. embassy spokesman in Jakarta declined to comment, but a U.S. government document showed the unit had received technical support, training and equipment under the State Department’s Anti-Terrorism Assistance (ATA) program since 2003.

Jeremy Scahill has a post on the situation with Iraq

The State Department is asking Congress to approve funds to more than double the number of private security contractors in Iraq with a State Department official testifying in June at a hearing of the Wartime Contracting Commission that the Department wants “between 6,000 and 7,000 security contractors.” The Department also has asked the Pentagon for twenty-four Blackhawk helicopters, fifty Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) vehicles and other military equipment. “After the departure of U.S. Forces [from Iraq], we will continue to have a critical need for logistical and life support of a magnitude and scale of complexity that is unprecedented in the history of the Department of State,” wrote Patrick Kennedy, under secretary of state for management, in an April letter to the Pentagon. “And to keep our people secure, Diplomatic Security requires certain items of equipment that are only available from the military.”

What is unfolding is the face of President Obama’s scaled-down, rebranded mini-occupation of Iraq. Under the terms of the Status of Forces agreement, all US forces are supposed to be out of Iraq by the end of 2011. Using private forces is a backdoor way of continuing a substantial US presence under the cover of “diplomatic security.” The kind of paramilitary force that Obama and Clinton are trying to build in Iraq is, in large part, a byproduct of the monstrous colonial fortress the United States calls its embassy in Baghdad and other facilities the US will maintain throughout Iraq after the “withdrawal.” The State Department plans to operate five “Enduring Presence Posts” at current US military bases in Basrah, Diyala, Erbil, Kirkuk and Ninewa. The State Department has indicated that more sites may be created in the future, which would increase the demand for private forces. The US embassy in Baghdad is the size of Vatican City, comprised of twenty-one buildings on a 104-acres of land on the Tigris River.

Status of Forces Agreements (SOFAs) are treaties that have been used to keep military bases in countries for decades.  When the one with Iraq was signed, a brawl broke out in Parliament:

A session of Iraq’s Parliament collapsed in chaos on Wednesday, as a discussion among lawmakers about a three-year security agreement with the Americans boiled over into shouting and physical confrontation.

The session was dedicated to a second public reading of the agreement, which governs the presence of American troops in Iraq through 2011 and which the Parliament is scheduled to vote on Monday. Even before the session began, legislators were apprehensive.

No wonder.

Fundamentally Change America — #1

Whoever the frak Duzey is, their stuff gets copy/pasta-ed all over random Wingnut boards. What we here at Politisink have learned about Duzey is that Duzey loves dashes, and Duzey loves to speak biblically in Duzey’s attacks on Obama. Below is an actual Duzey article taken from a site that shall not be named where it was copy/pasta-ed everywhere…

——————–We the People——————–

Fundamentally Change America — #1

What did Obama mean by Fundamentally Change America?

To Fundamentally Change America: Obama plans to —Radically change— the essential structure, functions and facts of America!

Thanks for tell us what we already know!

America was established as a Republic to be governed by the Constitution based upon Godly Principles of Morality.

By removing the Morality of God from the Schools and Government in America is to —Fundamentally Change America— you end up with a Socialist Communist Anti-God Nation!

Obama is going to take prayers out of schools—wait a minute, that happened decades ago! And how can you be both Socialist and Communist? It’s almost like you don’t know what those words mean, Duzey!

Fact — President Obama has surrounded himself with Marxists, Socialists, Radicals and Self-proclaiming Communist Czars.

Fact — Obama supports Liberal Supreme Court Judges and other government people whom Hate God, but support Abortions (Murder of babies), Homosexuality, Sex Perverts and are Liars and Thieves Seeking to destroy our Constitution.

Fact — Duzey left his meds in the car one hot summer day
Fact — the meds haven’t worked quite right since then

These people own guns

Hey so I was looking though USA Carry the other day after Tars Tarkas brought it to my attention and realized it was mostly full of conservative crazies who hate everything that doesn’t represent an idealized version of the 1950′s that the users collective envision. At one point, one of the posters just writes “I want the America I grew up in back” which seems to be what this whole post could be summed up as. Anyway, onto the crazy people:

This is in response to that fake story where some 11 year old girl who is also a skeet shooting champion kills two illegal immigrant home invaders before they can rape and kill her.

11-year-old-girl-shoots-illegals2.png

Time for some witty word play about what the ACLU could stand for. Also a nice little call for a new Crusade is tucked into the first post.

And from the same thread. You know your tactics are working if everyone is calling you a racist. The logic there is just astounding.

Here is a post to round out your right wing talking point bingo card. It contains about five.

The “cowboys and Muslims” thing is pretty prevalent around the site. It’s their little joke way of saying “kill all brown people”.

In case you were wondering what the Bill of Rights was really about, it is about spreading the word of God.

Why is gay sex so horrible? Because God said it was worst than every other sin combined. Having sex with a dude (if you’re a dude) or a chick (if you’re a chick) is like a super ultimate sin that trumps all other sins even if you combine other sins. This post also answers the question “could God make a sin so terrible it makes him sick”.

And now for the post that inspired me to make this update.

Now here is a small sampling of the crazy that is Sheldon. First up are some posts from the thread about the Christians being arrested at the Arab American festival.

And now he lets us know what is and isn’t a militant (hint: Christian no, Muslim yes)

And Sheldon weighs in on the timeline of the world and a fanboy weighs in also to reinforce Sheldon’s crazy.

Sheldon-crazy11.png
sheldon-fanboy11.png

And finally I leave you with a response one of the liberal posters posted on there that I think sums up conservatives motives on the internet. And don’t forget, all of the above people own guns and want to use them.

Drain Clogs – 07-21-2010

  1. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has apologized to Shirley Sherrod over forcing her to resign due to doctored footage on the Breitbart Big Hollywood site. Maybe the Obama Administration won’t be spineless douchebags next time…HA! One thing is for sure, the media will still treat Breitbart like a legitimate news source and not like the snakeoil salesman he is. No word on what black institution Breitbart will smear next, but we’ll keep you posted!
  2. Missouri Republican candidate Ed Martin says Obama is taking away your “freedom, to find your salvation, to get your salvation”. Damn you, Obama!!
  3. The Republican National Committee failed to report more than $7 million in debt to the Federal Election Commission in recent months – and people are blaming Michael Steele again, who will not get fired for this, either.
  4. Sadly, that is not that big of a deal, because the FoxNews and the teabaggers control the message better than the GOP did, and Karl Rove’s PAC American Crossroads has millions on hand from the GOP’s former secret donors (still secret) and will be spending it come November.
  5. In Oakland, Byron Williams was pulled over by the cops on his way to killing liberals in San Francisco at the ACLU and the Tides Foundation and a major gun battle ensued. Two officers were wounded by broken glass and Williams was injured. This Real American Patriot is obviously a liberal plant and was quickly denounced as one by every Right Wing site on the internet. Hey, Beck talked about the Tides Foundation! But obviously a coincidence from this left wing infiltrator.
  6. The Minutemen LOLfest between Chris Simcox and Stacey O’Connell became more hilarious when Simcox claimed that he was being hunted down by bounty hunter O’Connell because O’Connell was sleeping with his wife.
  7. Former GOP Congressman Tim Walberg (who is trying to return to Congress) says “With the 9/12 movement, the Tea Party, people are standing up really for the first time in history” Yeah, fuck you, Civil Rights Movement! It’s all about the Teabaggers! Up your, labor! You aren’t real people!
  8. We’re doing this as an html list because someone said people pay more attentions to html lists vs just items written in a line Is that true? Say your piece in the comments!
  9. Wingnut Site of the Day: NAACPC – The National Association for the Advancement of Conservative People of All Colors – Two black Teabaggers – Lloyd Marcus and Frantz Kebreau – set this up to troll the NAACP with Teabagger backing! You might be familiar with Lloyd Marcus as he’s the black guy the teabaggers bring out to every gathering to prove they are not racist.
  10. Cartoon of the Day:

Wingnuts destroy another life in fake NAACP racism flap

Lindsay Lohan is in jail. But enough of that important stuff, the Right has a new NAACP tape to distort and use as evidence that Blacks are the Real Racists!

Andrew Breitbart will be a familiar name to you if you recall videos about pimps and ACORN. Much like how that video was heavily edited, a new edited video has been posted. This one goes along with the current Wingnut furor against the NAACP for daring to say something bad about their precious tea parties. In the video, Shirley Sherrod addresses a local NAACP banquet and recounts a tale from 24 years earlier when she was supposed to help a white farmer save his property who was being condescending to her. The point of the story was to show how she felt remorse for her thoughts of not helping the farmer, Mr. Spooner, and Sherrod did help the farmer and Spooner saved his farm thanks to Sherrod.

The edited video:

Sherrod says she was forced to resign as the department’s director of rural development for Georgia.

The wife of Spooner called into CNN and called Sherrod a “friend” who “helped us save our farm”:

More on the farmer’s wife as news companies do actual journalism! I guess they just couldn’t be bothered during the whole ACORN thing, but now they’re finally getting off their duffs. As the story continues to develop and Breitbart continues to look weaker and weaker, this story will get more interesting.

But who cares about this, we got Yahoo News comments!!! The only thing dumber than Yahoo news comments are Freepers, AOL, and YouTube comments.

NCAWP – National Coalition Against White People

White People are now the minorities, US Citizens and when we are in need, qualify for NOTHING. I know first hand as a few people in my family have lost everything we worked for over the last 50 years. We were turned down for everything we applied for. Sherrad is one of many people in a government position that had a hand in destroying a hard working family. Unfortunetly white people have not established a NCAWP group. All policy, procedures were put in place for all of the minorities. A hard working white person that ends up in need is automatically turned down. We have to fight for anything government helps us with. Now the the last of the OLD VERSION minorities holds the highest position, let see what he does to help the New version Minorities. Every government position held by a minority should be audited. I am sure there are many Shirley types in the US. The “Pandoras Box” should be opened. Then fairnesws will prevaile!!!!

Impeach Obama for something that happened in 1986!

This makes me MAD AS HELL. This is more reason to IMPEACH Obama for the crimes against humanaty he is comiting against WHITES. It makes me even more MAD the fact that I am paying those tribal Africans a HUGE chunk of my pay for their WELFARE CHECKS. If these blacks dont shape up, I say send them all to Obama’s birthplace, Kenya where they can die of aids like all the other head hunting black African canibul tribes.

A real winner here!

Bring back the hanging tree and truck-draggin’ chains!

I wanna hug this women for being edited to be racist!

I wanna hug this woman for being willing to be so stupid and saying such damning things and exposing the Racist elements of the NAACP. Perhaps now we can get the Government to be consistant and call ALL organizations that exsist for the advancement of any race, Racist. Now get rid of the NAACP, the Black and Hispanic Caucuses etc. and lets be equal without our color to help us.

Black people never give me fries with that

As a honky, I face overt racism regularly.

When I purchase food at inner-city fast food restaurants,
my order is always messed up deliberately. The orders
for blacks are not messed up.

When dealing with black clerks, cashiers, etc,, I am
forced to wait while they pursue some nonsense.
It is deliberate disrespect.

Black people stuck on my caps lock key!

THATS THE PROBLEM NOW DAYS BLACK PEOPLE TAKE AVANTAGE OF THIER SKIN COLOR BCUZ EVERY THING HAS TO DO WITH THIER SKIN COLOR THIER THE ONES THAT GET EVERYTHING (FREE)IN LIFE .THEY DONT PAY RENT DONT PAY BILLS NOT EVEN THIER CELL FREE FOOD .FREE MEDICAL WHAT ELSE DO THEY NEED TO GET FREE BEFORE KNOWING THEY GOT IT MADE HEAR .I REMEMBER LAST SUMMER I WENT TO A PROGRAM FOR KIDS TO GET SCHOOL SUPPLY,S AND THE LADY THAT WAS TALKING TO (EVERYBODY)TOLD US IF WE DIDNT HAVE ANYTHING PROVING WE LIVED HERE WAS NOT GOING TO GET SUPPLY,S ,(SO FIRST THING THAT CAME OUT OF THAT LADY,S MOUTH WAS OH ITS BECAUSE IM BLACK WHEN THIER WERE ALL RACE THIER EVEN BLACK ,THATS ALL THEY DO IS COMPLAIN ABOUT THE COLOR OF THIER SKIN (BUTT)THEY ALWAYS MAKE SURETHAT BLACK IS BEATIFULTHENB PROUD TO BE BLCK

A comment from someone under the boat.

Look at all these people stumbling all over themselves.
I love it.
Guilt ridden lefties because they are, deep down inside, prejudice; so they try and explain it away.
Get this folks Shes a F_ _ _ing RACIST!!!!
A RACIST appointed by Obama.You connect the dots.
Racism is Racism I don’t care what side of the boat your on.

Complaining about my racism is SO FIVE MINUTES AGO!

Black on white racism is done more that the opposite now. Only we whites dont cry about it like big a** babies like the blacks do. They are always looking for some sign of it so they can get a freebie.
Face it black people, your stupid little cry baby rants are OLD, BORING and SO FIVE MINUTES AGO.
GET A LIFE!

To those crying look what whites did in the past….

I have scars running down my neck and on my arms from defending myself from a bunch of racist black thugs.What did I do to provoke this attack you wonder? Nothing.As the paramedic was holding the wound on my neck closed I told the Officer what building they ran into.His reply “Your in the Wrong Nieghborhood” I said “Aren’t you going to get them” He said “That might start an altercation” I said “Isn’t That Your Job?!!!! Give Me Your Gun And I’ll Go Do Your Job For You!!!..Officer was Black.. at the Hospital Doctor said I was Lucky if the throat wound had been a millimeter deeper I would be dead. Next Day I called the Police to find out about my Incident report..None had been filed

My nieghborhood is filled with racist blacks that walk around intimidating people, Last holloween I was going home from work I stopped at the store to get some chips and beer, there were about 40+ black kids gathered across the street..as I left the store to go to the bus stop about 10 kids broke away from the group and followed me..As I stood at the bus stop they gathered behind me..One got brave got next to me and said “Aren’t you scared” I stuck my knife too his throat and said “Aren’t you” He backed up quick..then one says “You Don’t know who I am” and I replied “Obviosly You Don’t know Me or you Wouldn’t Be Doing This” they left..

What happened 40 years ago is happening today but in reverse!!

A little more light on privatized intelligence

The Washington Post has added a new feature on the subject named Top Secret America.  It has stories as well as interactive features to see where companies and agencies are located, who they contract with, etc.  The way this stuff has expanded over the past decade is extremely creepy and almost never really reported on.

A major reason for concern about it is that necessity is not what’s driving its growth:

In the Department of Defense, where more than two-thirds of the intelligence programs reside, only a handful of senior officials – called Super Users – have the ability to even know about all the department’s activities. But as two of the Super Users indicated in interviews, there is simply no way they can keep up with the nation’s most sensitive work.

“I’m not going to live long enough to be briefed on everything” was how one Super User put it. The other recounted that for his initial briefing, he was escorted into a tiny, dark room, seated at a small table and told he couldn’t take notes. Program after program began flashing on a screen, he said, until he yelled ”Stop!” in frustration.

“I wasn’t remembering any of it,” he said.

Underscoring the seriousness of these issues are the conclusions of retired Army Lt. Gen. John R. Vines, who was asked last year to review the method for tracking the Defense Department’s most sensitive programs. Vines, who once commanded 145,000 troops in Iraq and is familiar with complex problems, was stunned by what he discovered.

“I’m not aware of any agency with the authority, responsibility or a process in place to coordinate all these interagency and commercial activities,” he said in an interview. “The complexity of this system defies description.”

The result, he added, is that it’s impossible to tell whether the country is safer because of all this spending and all these activities. “Because it lacks a synchronizing process, it inevitably results in message dissonance, reduced effectiveness and waste,” Vines said. “We consequently can’t effectively assess whether it is making us more safe.”

Another good resource is Spies for Hire, which has some information on the activities of some of the major contractors.

I’ll see if I can find more interesting stuff to post about this now that I have some more substantial background to work from than scattered news stories. For now,  I’ll leave you with another recent one: Police Video Shows ProPublica Photographer Detained in Texas (includes video)
