Sam Adams, more than beer

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen”

One of the true great minds in the history of our Country.

Are we blind?

This retired marine asks the right questions. He also provides a couple of answers.

Why does a police department need this kind of equipment?

That'swhat Obama wants. This is from 2008, before he was pResident.

When people fear their government, there is tyranny.

Bloomberg apologist makes no pretense of reasonable suspicion for stop-and-frisk

Perhaps most egregiously, one defense of the policy is that the objective is not really to catch criminals in the act (of carrying contraband--specifically guns). The idea behind stopping hundreds of thousands of blacks and Hispanics per year--the vast majority of them innocent--is to instill fear in every member of these ethnic groups--fear that they will be stopped-and-frisked, so they had better obey New York's mandated defenselessness edicts.

Read the rest. Kurt does a good job of taking on the apologists. I don't understand how people can blindly follow the mad dwarf when he blatantly violates the Constitution. Sometimes I think the people of NYC get what they deserve.

Jesse Jackson Jr. sentenced to 2½ years

RTWT it's almost unbelievable.

Former U.S. Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. was sentenced to 2½ years in prison Wednesday after pleading guilty to stealing more than $750,000 from his campaign fund and illegally using the money for personal purchases. “I was wrong and I don’t fault anyone,” he said. is wife received a term of one year and will have to serve out her entire sentence.
The judge saw through his "I'm sick" bullshit.

 The judge appeared to reject Jackson Jr.’s psychiatric defense, saying his string of accomplishments “points to only one conclusion: and that is that you knew better.”
His wife got 1 year and will have to serve the full 12 months.

 His wife, former Ald. Sandi Jackson (7th), was sentenced to 12 months, with the judge citing spending of campaign funds that included $5,000 in furs and parkas “in one day.” She was also ordered to pay $22,000 in restitution.
Of course the Lawyers were trying to get them lower sentences or probation "for the Children". They should be in jail and the children raised by someone that isn't a criminal.

Sandi Jackson sat crying as Webb cited her “devotion to family and desire to participate” in the community and help the disadvantaged.
Well, she and Jesse Jr sure helped themselves. Now she wants to help the disadvantaged? What have they got that she wants to steal?

 A prison term for the once-powerful Jesse Jackson Jr. marks a spectacular fall from grace for the son of the famed civil rights leader Rev. Jesse Jackson.
 I refuse to call him Reverend. Where is his church? He's nothing but a race baiting asshole.*

If I stole 3/4 of a million dollars, They would lock me up for years on end. 30 months is a joke. And just when is JJ Jr. going to answer for trying to by Barack Obama's senate seat? Govenor Rod is serveing 14 years for talking about selling it. Maybe they can share a cell.

*In 1968, if James Earl Ray had aimed a little to the left, Dr. King would still be with us and Jackson would be a footnote in a history book. 

Bloomberg the racist

Stop and frisk, that wonderful "tool" of NYC law enforcement has been thrown out by a judge.

From the New York Times
The use of police stops has been widely cited by city officials as a linchpin of New York’s success story in seeing murders and major crimes fall to historic lows. The police say the practice has saved the lives of thousands of young black and Hispanic men by removing thousands of guns from the streets.
Read all of Kurt's excellent take here.

Bloomberg proves his racism.
Mayor Bloomberg claimed that people of color should be stopped and frisked more -- not less -- while whites are stopped too frequently.
 Yet only about 12 % of the stops are of whites. His program isn't racist enough for him.

Read about his unabashed racism.

The War on Guns: "Most Dangerous Neighborhoods" Sounds So Negative and Judgmental

The War on Guns: "Most Dangerous Neighborhoods" Sounds So Negative and Judgmental

It's nice that my home state has 6 of the top 25.
Detroit 4
Flint 1
Saginaw 1 (Saginaw???WTF???)

I'm surprised Flint only has 1.

Chicago tied Detroit with 4. Plus Rockford.

The one thing they have in common is the fact that they are Democrat strongholds. Detroit has been under Democrat control since 1961 and Chicago even longer.

Counterinsurgency Cops

Herschel Smith breaks down the militarization of our police departments. What has happened to officer Friendly? 

The application of force isn’t discriminatory.  The Pittsburgh SWAT dragged a ten year old out of the bathtub and made him stand naked next to his four year old sister at gunpoint.  The Detroit police wereall in a tizzy over an art gallery.
The moment the assault rifles surrounded her, Angie Wong was standing in a leafy art-gallery courtyard with her boyfriend, a lawyer named Paul Kaiser. It was just past 2 A.M., in May, 2008. Wong was twenty-two years old and was dressed for an evening out, in crisp white jeans, a white top, and tall heels that made it difficult not to wobble. The couple had stopped by a regular event hosted by the Contemporary Art Institute of Detroit (CAID), a red brick gallery with the aim of “turning Detroit into a model city,” and arrived to find a tipsy, jubilant scene: inside, gallerygoers were looking at art and dancing to a d.j …
Only then did masked figures with guns storm the crowd, shouting, “Get on the fucking ground! Get down, get down!”   Some forty Detroit police officers dressed in commando gear ordered the gallery attendees to line up on their knees, then took their car keys and confiscated their vehicles, largely on the grounds that the gallery lacked the proper permits for dancing and drinking.
A naked ten year old in a bathtub, dancing and drinking at an art gallery … these are the things occupying the SWAT teams of America. In the case of Brian Terry’s death, border agents initially fired bean bags at the killers.  Yet bean bags were precisely what killed a 95 year old innocent man in Park Forrest (via Mike Vanderboegh).
The old man, described by a family member as “wobbly” on his feet, had refused medical attention. The paramedics were called. They brought in the Park Forest police.
First they tased him, but that didn’t work. So they fired a shotgun, hitting him in the stomach with a bean-bag round. Wrana was struck with such force that he bled to death internally, according to the Cook County medical examiner.
“The Japanese military couldn’t get him at the age he was touchable, in a uniform in the war. It took 70 years later for the Park Forest police to do the job,” Wrana’s family attorney, Nicholas Grapsas, a former prosecutor, said in an interview with me Thursday
Illegal Mexicans bent on killing, or a 95 year old veteran of WWII who had done no wrong.  Eh … what’s the difference?

Read it all A lot of links at the end about SWAT murdering citizens, Killing dogs and raiding the wrong addresses.
