  1. When Burlington, Vermont, officials pushed for a ban on “assault weapons” and larger magazines, the managers at the Lamoille Valley Fish and Game Club had a short, sharp response: They told Burlington cops, who had been training there, for free, to get lost.

    They better not need to call 911 anytime soon. On the other hand, who’s going to rob a shooting range?

    1. Your mo…nihilists?

      1. At least it’s not an ethos.

    2. A man attempted to rob a gun range in my hometown, but was pretty much blown away by the guys working there. It went so badly I have to wonder if he was really that dumb or it was actually a sort of variation on suicide by cop.

      1. A retired Sergeant-Major who was on the Army shooting team lives above our club house. I don’t think any robbery attempts would go well.

        And we let local cops shoot for free and qualify on the ranges – as long as they mind there own business while they are there.

  2. World Wide Web inventor

    Al Gore would like a word

    1. I would never go on a low-carbohydrate, high-protein diet like Atkins, Dukan or Cambridge. Why? Because although you will probably lose weight, they may kill you. Don’t take my word for it ? read about the 43,396 Swedish women followed for an average of 15 years.

      Derp.

      1. Wait, was that the study that showed that woman placed on a low-fat diet had higher mortality?

      2. Fact: Every Inuit will die. Think about that the next time you load up on meat and fat.

    1. 5. Neglecting coolant, brake, transmission and other fluid services

      Your transmission and brakes are closed systems. The fluid is just hydrolic fluid. They should never get dirty. Sure change them sometime. But never as often as the dealer tells you.

      1. They should be. I have a pinhole leak in my brake system somewhere. As long as I top up every quarter when the sensor says the reservoir is low, I can save a multihundred dollar service with a half can of fluid. Should I worry? Maybe, but at this point it’s been steady for over a year at the current consumption and I don’t plan on spending $300+ because I lose an ounce or two of fluid a month.

        1. You could just fix it yourself. Brake fluid leaves some nasty stains, so the leak should be easy to find.

        2. In the nuclear business we used to say that small leaks have a tendency to become larger – often rapidly when it happens.

          1. Ain’t that the truth.

    2. Yahoo: We can be just as stupid as Slate!

  3. Background checks for national gun sales, by the way, hit the highest level in 14 years.

    I can’t tell if this is supposed to be good news or a shame.

    1. Don’t worry. Someone will be here shortly to tell you what to think.

      1. Think moar libertarian! Duh.

  4. http://hotair.com/archives/201…..ng-office/

    Obama Administration closing office that was supposed to close GITMO. Remember when liberals told us GITMO was an American Auschwitz?

    1. So the motto of that office:

      “Work shall not make you free?”

    2. My sister-in-law says that Obama wants to close it, but it’s just too complicated. She suspects he feels really bad about it.

      1. He’s just waiting until he’s a lameduck…

      2. Your sister-in-law is a fucking retard.

        No offense meant.

      3. My sister-in-law says that Obama wants to close it, but it’s just too complicated.

        Sounds like an admission that he’s not all that bright.

    1. well it was the style at the time

      1. Hey, did you brew that 1 gallon batch?

    2. “Basically a coin with a story and a rarity will trump everything else”

      Bring *on* that Trillion Dollar Coin!

      1. 1. Mint $1 trillion coin
        2. Say it’s rare and has a story
        3. Sell it to collector for $16 trillion
        4. Pay off national debt

        It’s so simple!

    3. I remember when you used to buy a Twix bar for a nickel. A nickel!

      1. OKAY, I’M GETTING OFF YOUR LAWN!

      2. Twix is the only candy bar with the cookie crunch.

  5. Won’t someone please think of the children!?!?! Part 289738679236923

    Recently my 12-year-old son came home and told us he had an energy drink at a parent-supervised party. We were shocked. Why would parents who would never allow cigarettes or alcohol make caffeine-spiked beverages available to pre-teens? My son said it was no big deal; all of his friends were drinking them after school.

    Apparently, so are lots of other kids. Over the last 30 years, caffeine intake among children and adolescents has spiked 70 percent; today two-thirds of children consume caffeine on a daily basis. They get it in soda and energy drinks, of course, but also in a surprising range of stealth products marketed to kids, including candy, chips, gum, lip balm, even sunflower seeds.

    Disclaimer: I avoid caffeine as much as I can because it gives me awful headaches.

    1. Notice, there is not a single piece of evidence that caffeine is bad for kids. But she just knows it is bad.

      1. Pretty sure Dr Jonathan is a guy, but he’s a doctor. A so called expert. What does he need evidence for?

      2. Moms are some of the worst…

      3. Caffeine…..been in fucking Coca Cola for years….stupid retarded bitch!

        I hope a meteor hits this planet!

    2. Wtf is a “stealth product”? Is she really shocked there is caffeine in candy? And obviously children never ate candy before energy drinks existed…I mean, what? I’m just shocked that anyone is shocked that kids sometimes consume caffeine.

      1. They’ve clearly never been to New England. Dunkin Donuts coffee is the prominent religion around these parts and if you’re not regularly having a cuppa by the time middle school rolls around, you’re something of a sideshow attraction.

        1. No kidding. Whoever thought to put a coffee shop in the gas station across from the school my daughter goes to was a genius.

        2. Hey, what are you drinkin’?

      2. Dr Jonathan has a sad that you guys keep calling him a she.

        1. We have to other him somehow.

        2. “She” just fits. If he is not a soccer mom, he should be.

        3. Given that post, I think referring to him as “she” is perfectly appropriate.

      3. Did you know that some drinks have been spiked with vitamins?!?

        STEALTH PRODUCT

        1. And fluoride.

      4. I share my morning coffee with my 4 year old daughter on the weekends. She prefers the 8 0’clock original with a hazel nut creamer and lots of sugar.

        1. Well according to the good doctor you are histories greatest monster!

          1. I have a 3 year old who’s taken sips of my iced coffee before.

            I should just prepare to have DCF come and take her away, shouldn’t I? 🙁

            1. As part of your repentance you should call them yourself!

              Only then can the healing begin.

          2. Well, he does use flavored creamers.

      5. Yeah, I don’t get it… is he suggesting that the evil corparashuns are injecting caffeine into sunflower seeds? And if candy has chocolate in it, it probably has some caffeine.

    3. “Caffeine-spiked beverages”? Because alcohol- and caffeine-consumption are totally analogous, right? Fuck this guy.

    4. 2 hours/day x 180 school days per year x 12 years = 4320 hours of school WASTED because I pretty much slept between the hours of 8 and 10 AM.

      I wish I’d discovered caffeine MUCH, MUCH earlier in life.

      1. Based on my school experience, you probably didn’t miss much except social interaction.

        So, yeah, nothing important.

    5. Meh. I learned how to drink coffee black with no sugar when I was in high school.

    6. I find its the *lack* of caffeine that give me headaches. Ok not really anymore, but it used to for real.

      Also – stealth products? The only *candy* regularly available with caffeine is chocolate – the other types usually have to be ordered and *market* their caffeine content.

    1. Why does he have to ruin Vegas for the rest of us?

    2. Someone needs to tell this asshole he won, already, and can stop campaigning. Also, this country is broke thanks to his fucked up policies, so if he could stop squandering money that would be a help.

      1. WHat else does he know how to do?

  6. An Indiana couple faces jail for rescuing a baby deer ? apparently because “somebody” set it free instead of letting state officials euthanize the animal.

    The state’s DNR might have too much time on its hands. Because, you know, it’s a fucking deer.

    1. The couple clearly had too much time on their hands because, you know, it’s a fucking deer.

      1. Exactly, its a fucking deer. Yum.

        1. When my grandfather had his farm I had a “pet” fawn. This thing used to follow me around everywhere. Of course, I was about 7 and I assume we ended up eating him at some point.

      2. Well, they had a farm so it probably didn’t take too much bite out of their normal schedule. Also, they weren’t spending taxpayer dollars prosecuting the fucking deer.

    2. Listen, you guys can’t go on clearly giving sly nods to things you read in the comments and then not give hat tips when I’m 7.5 hours ahead of you breaking this story on H&R.

      1. Let me be clear, who runs this website?

        /2Chilly

    3. Serious question: are baby deer particularly delicious?

      1. Baby anything is usually superior. I would guess yes.

    4. The state’s DNR might have too much time on its hands

      The state has a Do Not Resuscitate? I wish we could just refuse to resuscitate the state.

  7. With friends like these…

    “The myth of the Holocaust is an industry that America invented,” Shihab-Eddim said, leaving no room for doubt that the Egyptian government — like Iran’s — has at the very least significant elements that deny one of history’s best documented genocides.

    “U.S. intelligence agencies in cooperation with their counterparts in allied nations during World War II created it [the Holocaust] to destroy the image of their opponents in Germany, and to justify war and massive destruction against military and civilian facilities of the Axis powers, and especially to hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki with the atomic bomb,” Shihab-Eddim said.

    1. but the Muslim Brotherhood are righteous. They are just freedom fighters. They are not radical or anything.

      1. They certainly don’t have anything against the Jews.

    2. The Holocaust was actually perpetrated by aliens. I know, I saw it written out in the chemtrails.

    3. and especially to hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki with the atomic bomb,” Shihab-Eddim said.

      why yes, because we certainly nuked japan to avenge the jews.

      1. Yeah… this is ridiculous, as most conspiracy theories are. Seriously, we would have no reason to justify our nuking Japan. All we’d have to say is “Nanjing” and they would have to STFU.

        1. The rape of Nanjing was faked too…or something.

          1. Jewish plot.

      2. Exactly. Because if you want to create a pretext for nuking Japan, it makes perfect sense to gin up a fake genocide in Europe.

      3. Well, you gotta nuke somethin’, right?

        1. How bout the kaba.

    4. Yay, Arab Spring!

    5. Since the existence of the Death Camps wasn’t revealed until near the end of the War in Europe I don’t see how it was used to justify the bombing campaigns against Germany.

      Not to mention I’m pretty sure the justification for Hiroshima and Nagasaki had nothing to do with the Holocaust.

  8. That may be why the government’s growing bite took such a big chunk out of consumer confidence.

    I’m not sure why there was much consumer confidence to take a bite out of. Misleading media reports on the economic recovery, maybe?

    1. The go to guy is John Williams of Shadowstats.com.

    1. Good thing you didn’t capitalize “Indians”. Makes it less RACIST!

    2. There is nothing racist about the term “Indian”. I worked an entire year once for an outfit called “Oklahoma Indian Legal Services” I never once in that time heard an actual Indian call themselves anything but an “Indian”.

      1. That’s just because THEY NEEDED LEGAL SERVICES! 😉

        1. I saw the worst of Indian culture and social problems there. But despite that, I couldn’t help but love our clients. I have a soft spot for Indians.

          1. I’m a big fan of curry myself.

            1. I like those Indians too.

          2. John, including the late Russell Means?

            1. Means was an asshole who ripped off his own people. So no. Not so much him.

    3. Um, don’t you mean “cowboys and Native Americans”?

      1. No. “Cowboys and Elizabeth Warren”* is not okay either.

        *rule 34 also applies

          1. Elizabeth Warren looked wearily at the President. Her blonde hair was tangled and her denim shorts were barely intact. Her arms covered her bare breasts as she crouched, shivering. Mascara was smudged over her cheeks.
            “Why didn’t you mention that about my tribe? The horny misogynists with the gang-rape culture were not part of the brochure!” she hissed.

            The President thought back over the last couple of days’ events. It had certainly been an interesting adventure so far but he couldn’t help but feel a tiny bit sorry for Lizzie.

            “Well I didn’t realise they would do that to you. Sorry. Well at least you got laid for the first time in, what, 3 weeks is it now?”

            Lizzie glared at him without a hint of a smile.
            “We could have gone to a Cambodian brothel city, or had a bit of fun at the month-long passion festival in Munich, but nooo, we had to come here, the Cherokee reservation.”

            “It’s a beautiful place; just look at the gorgeous moon. And the prairie, wow, incredible,” the President tried to argue. He sensed he had made a bit of a mistake. After all, Lizzie was tied up in what looked like quite an uncomfortable position, her long legs forced up to her head and bound to her hands. The torn blue rags around her midriff did little to cover what modesty she might have had before today.

            1. “Well I’m not exactly having fun either,” he said grudgingly. He regretted not trying harder to escape when he had the chance – if he could just have ignored his massive erection caused by his companion’s breasts and buttocks jiggling as a dozen of the tribe members called upon their animal instincts, he could have got back to Air Force One and rescued Lizzie. He considered now if there was a small part of him that had wanted to see more of the outrageous acts Lizzie had been forced to endure. He had seldom noticed the perverted side of his nature, especially with Michelle around, but he then remembered when he was around 51 and had been feeling lonely. He shook his head, putting the thoughts to the back of his mind. He tried to remember how they had got into this situation.

              1. There were around 15 members of the Cherokee tribe, at least, that was how many Lizzie and the President had come across. They had heard the strange wailing produced when Air Force One landed on a large rock directly above their village. They used their powerful legs to sprint up the hill to greet the visitors before the Doctor had even opened the door. They were human in appearance, around 6 foot tall with naked, dark skin around bulging muscles. The first thing Lizzie noticed, after the shouting of a few crude words translated by the Department of State adjunct, were the cocks. The penises of the Cherokee were painted pink and around 14 inches long, by her approximation. And that was just hanging limply. She almost instantaneously felt a sticky, warm drop trickle down her cellulite-ridden inner thigh, and readjusted her dumpy grandma shorts. She could not help but feel aroused by even the smallest turn-on these days. And these, she thought to herself, were pretty big turn-ons.

                1. “Who are these people?” she whispered to the President, but he was too busy introducing himself.
                  “Hello, I’m the Messi…er…President. Worship me.” A large grin flashed across his goofy face as he walked towards the men. The tallest of the Cherokee, who appeared to be the chief with his comparatively ornate headpiece, stepped forward with a face like thunder. The distance between the two groups was reduced to a couple of feet. The President felt a twinge of apprehension.
                  “Fuck, I should really have landed further away if we’re going to do this photo-op safely…”
                  “What do you mean, Mr. President?” Lizzie yelled. “Is this tribe dangerous?!” She had a murderous look in her eyes that the President felt slightly discomforted by.

                  1. A quick head gesture from the chief tribesman, who had been deciding what to make of these new arrivals, and the men around him started to move quickly towards the travellers.
                    “Run! Back to the plane!” shouted the President. After less than a second of calculation while running, he came to the conclusion that the tribesmen would catch up with them before they could make it. Simultaneously, the first tribesman caught up with them. They were frustratingly close to Air Force One but iron-like grips around the President’s arms and legs ensured he could not move except in the direction the tribesmen wished. Lizzie, who had also been forcibly restrained in this way, closed her eyelids in silent prayer. She often felt vulnerable travelling to these alien environments with the President, but never like this. Another spasm of fantasy in her mind, and her pussy undulated with the possibilities. Her slightly sticky legs were now being carried slightly farther apart than she would have felt comfortable, and a small breeze cooled her wet panties, which were nearly six feet off the ground, her limbs hoisted by four tribesmen. She shivered slightly from the chilly air.

                    1. The tribe leader barked out a brusque phrase which told roughly translated as “to initiation”. She could not see much except for the sky and her limbs were starting to ache from the rough grip of the four men, who all turned suddenly to another angle. She felt a combination of fear, excitement, though the fear was most prominent on her mind. She cursed in her mind as another twinge of lust danced through her. She had always been turned on by some weird things, particularly those in the more colorful internet history of her boyfriend. Her body had always desired sex, the more exotic the better.

                    2. She remembered being a 14-year old screaming in delight at the inexperienced touches of her best friend Alicia. Ever since then, regular sex had held little pleasure for her. Of course, without any alternative she would go, desperate for a release, to the nearest Boston Irish pub to where she lived and whisper in some old bloke’s ear, “I want to fuck you so hard your balls explode”. Having been fully disgusted by her whiny nasely voice dripping with desperation, the guy would turn around and nearly vomit at the sight of the haggard blonde in a pants-suit with an enticing eyebrow raised towards him. After covering his departure from the group, and his erection, Lizzie would be moaning within 3 minutes. She knew some of the girls around her considered her slutty after seeing her do this over 50 times a year, but she was only fulfilling the chemical desires within her when they became too powerful to resist.

                    3. This was what made her job as a thug lawyer so fulfilling. She shook her head, thinking “no, not lawyer, social justice crusader”. She turned her mind back to her probably dangerous situation. She berated her body for taking everything to have sexual implications – the tribesmen’s incredible penises were probably just the norm around here. What did she think initiation was, gang-rape or something? Even though she considered it unlikely, the thought alone sent her pussy quivering, hungry for some action. Her white panties had become see-through from all the juices seeping from her vagina.

                    4. “Commence.” A flurry of movement and Lizzie gasped as a huge Cherokee cock almost filled up her vision, and she felt an enormous warm piece of flesh entering her mouth and stopping her breathe. She had to gag instantly: it was almost the size of an apple. Her eyes widened with surprise, she tried to cough and saliva launched from her nose. The heady smell of sweaty cock mixed with the pink paint filled her nostrils as she took deep fast breaths through them. She noticed the large balls hanging underneath the appendage for the first time, and her eyes grew wider still. She was almost accustomed to the massive gag in her mouth when the tribesman grasped the back of her head with his strong hands and forced the pink colored cock further inside Lizzie. She felt the back of her throat stretch and the whole head of his cock pushed down her gullet. It was the most uncomfortable thing she had felt, and her eyes watered with the sheer size of the thing. Thankfully, her gag reflex had been very well trained, with deep-throating being one of her preferred blowjob styles. This facefucking was extreme, though, and she tried to hold back the urge to vomit.

                    5. TL;DR

                    6. I think the term “TL;DM” is more appropriate.

                    7. Amazing — just stream-of-consciousness fiction written in 20 minutes? Or was it live reporting?

    4. Well shit. First they got rid of cops and robbers, now cowboys and indians. Poor kids are gonna be left running around the playground playing democrats and republicans.

      1. playing democrats and republicans.

        But who do they rob when they decide on “bipartisanship?”

        1. The fat kids.

    5. Definitely should have clarified in the flyer: “Feathers, not dots”

    6. Fucking Disqus comment platform.

  9. World Wide Web inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee warns that governments’ current mania for sniffing up data and building dossiers on their citizens creates a target-rich environment for spies and other swipers of information

    That’s the worst thing he can imagine happening as a result of government’s building dossiers on its citizens?

    1. Seriously. We have the head of the CIA coming right out and remarking about how the plan is to spy on people through their refrigerators.

      1. I knew I needed to clean it out but I didn’t realize it was infested with spooks!

        1. infested with spooks

          RAAAAAAAAAAAACIST!!!!!!!!!!

  10. Citizen Pulls Over Drunk Cop, Locks Him In His Own Cruiser

    Russell George, of Prestbury, watched this cop weave in and out of traffic erratically before taking the law into his own hands.
    Here’s what happened according to Russell:

    “He was driving towards oncoming traffic as he turned into Victoria Road. At this point I was concerned about the safety of other road users. He suddenly jammed on his brakes and came to a complete stop. I got out of my car and went towards him and I asked him if he knew what he was doing. He started his car and carried on driving.”

    That’s when Russell called the sober cops.

    “After five minutes, no one had arrived. So I jumped out of my car and I approached the driver’s side and asked him to come out. He looked at me and I could smell that he had been drinking. I asked him again, and he refused. I then grabbed his keys, pulled him out and locked him in the back of his own van.”

    1. What will PoliceOne have to say about this clearly dangerous civilian who would DARE arrest a brother in blue?

      1. They’re putting a special weapons team together to come over and shoot his dog.

        There….justice served!

  11. Berners-Lee suggested a teenager who “really needs to visit a forum for professional advice” about their health, or looking for information on sexuality or other advice of a personal nature who chooses not do so from fear their activity would be tracked and that they could be identified in future as having had a particular health concern.

    Gee, I wonder if Tim’s been following our guns-and-mental-health debate?

  12. Father of Newtown victim heckled while speaking for gun control at a town hall meeting.

    He has a right to speak, but hiding behind the supposed absolute moral authority of a grieving parent does not in any way help the debate or posit a rational solution.

    1. It must be helping the debate, because it’s pervasive in the MSM.

    2. The goal for most people isn’t to figure out the truth, just to convince the others.

    3. Proven to be a media lie.

    4. They answered his question. Personally I would have gone with “fuck your kids”. That should become the standard answer to all of these damn Mrs. Lovejoys.

    5. heckled? He asked a rhetorical question, then looked around and said, o no one has an answer to my rhetorical question, huh? So people started to answer him. Jeez, news media.

    6. Just more NBC Big Lie.

  13. Ukranian teen watching web cam discovers something slither across his screen

    1. Am I the only one to think that that something just might possibly have been Groovus?

    TRENDING: Skeptical congresswoman challenges Obama to skeet shooting match

    Wouldn’t it be great to have such a match on national TV? Maybe in lieu of Beyonce’s lip syncing at halftime of the Super Bowl.

    1. the stock would slip and he’d break his nose.

      1. Watching her wipe the floor with his skinny ass would be priceless. The only thing better would be listening to his media toadies whine and call us all racists for enjoying it.

        1. He’d show up with some dorky shooting duds and elaborate ear protectors reminiscent of his bicycling gear.

      2. I’m envisioning the West Wing episode where Toby goes skeet shooting with the Israeli defense minister at Camp David. That’s almost exactly what happens.

        1. I just hope that Josh and Donna finally get together!

      3. I knocked the shit outta my shoulder this weekend hurrying to get the 12ga up while shooting against my buddy who was “backing me up” with a .410. Of course, backing me up meant counting one second and shooting, so I was under pressure to get the gun up and on target. Will remember to seat it better next time.

      4. I wonder if blackburn played this the wrong way. instead of issuing a challenge, ask for tips. “im really having trouble as station 4 and would love for you to show me how its done.”

        1. “Maybe you can help me with my follow-through?”

    2. That would be excellent.

      1. That it would!

    3. Let’s all sign the White House petition!

    4. The video at the link also contains ‘weapons’ grade stupidity from David Frum (people need to know that crime is down in the last 20 years and that is why they don’t need guns) and Roland Martin (Congresswoman, I’ve been trying to play golf with the president and it hasn’t happened, so I’m sure you’re invitation to skeet shoot won’t happen anytime soon)…as bonuses.

      1. It’s cute that Roland Martin (whoever the fuck that is) thinks he has as much juice as a congresswoman.

  15. Paul Chabot, former drug czar advisor in the Clinton and Bush administrations, defends the criminalization of marijuana because it’s … just like child pornography?

    Hyperbole is the absolute worst thing in the history of the universe. Next to Paul Chabot, that is.

  16. “Anybody in their right mind would have done the same thing.”

    The Councellers contacted DNR at the time but were told to return the deer to the wild and let nature take its course.

    Anyone in their right mind would have known to follow the DNR’s initial advice even without asking. I bet these fucking Bambi-lovers get all upset over confined marine mammals too.

    1. I had a gf in high school who raised a deer and kept it as a pet. Damned thing slept in the bed with her. They actually are pretty easy to tame and not bad pets. A deer, a dog, a cat…keep whatever you want as a pet. I dont recommend snakes or large cats though.

      1. Smaller, non-poisonous snakes are fine. It’s when you start getting into vipers or 12+ foot long boas that you get into trouble..

    1. Mr. Lovecraft agrees. But for a different reason….

    2. Why have liberals all of the sudden got butt hurt about cats? It is pretty much been known by anyone who ever owned one that cats like to kill shit. Really?

      Sometimes I have to wonder if these clowns really do get talking points from party headquarters. Some random ass jihad will just appear from nowhere and be the subject of like 20 thumb sucking pieces in a very short time.

      1. Yeah, true. I am, no shit, worried that this is going to snowball into a politically correct jihad that will in some crazy way we have not yet conceived jeopardize my cat.

        1. AT what point does the party run afoul of the crazy cat women at Jezebel and such places?

          1. They’ll turn in their assault cats as a good example to the gun nuts.

          2. the crazy cat women at Jezebel and such places

            are just a bunch of pussies.

      2. Why have liberals all of the sudden got butt hurt about cats?

        Because only the state can legitimately kill for fun.

    3. These articles are always written by some douchebag that doesn’t understand that cats have always been stone cold killers.

      1. Maybe we should start killing off cats because they’re obviously demon spawn? There hasn’t been a good plague in a while.

    4. If you’re going to make the claim that cats kill 2.4 billion birds in the United States each year, shouldn’t you put that into context by telling the reader how many birds there are in the U.S.?

      I notice that the cats don’t seem to have any affect on the pigeon population in DC.

      1. they released falcons about 10 years ago or so (maybe more) to address that. i think it had some success.

        1. Yeah but they had to introduce chinese needle snakles to control the falcon population, then snake eating gorillas. Now they’re hoping winter kills off the gorillas.

    5. Anyone who has ever owned an outdoor cat knows this. They are killing machines, and they like to leave gifts.

      1. Best pest remediation ever.

        We “borrowed” our neighbor’s cat in college for two weeks to deal with our mouse problem. Little guy killed all our mice in a week but we kept him another week b/c he was so badass… and partly b/c the girls next door named him Chicken and what kind of a name is Chicken for a ruthless killing machine?

        1. My little tuxedo cat weighed about seven pounds. World’s cutest and friendliest cat. My parents kept her when I was over seas. She cleaned their out out of mice and a snake once. Killing machine she was. And so damned cute while being so.

    6. Which explains why Warty is so fond of them.

    7. I am out of barn cats due to predators eating them and this winter my barn is overrun with mice.

      Yes they are killing machines and that is what I use them for.

      My indoor cats, not so much. They are for warmth. It is a symbiosis we have all agreed on.

      They will have to pry my cats from my cold, dead hands.

      This is just a war on ASSAULT KATZZ!!11one!

      1. You need dogs to go with the cats and you have to round them up every night and put them in a safe place. Owls are cat killing machines. If you have dogs, coyotes won’t come around. But owls will.

        1. We have coyotes around here, but no dogs or llamas. Somehow, both our barn cat that we feed and the feral stray that we don’t have managed not to be eaten by either coyotes or owls.

      2. I don’t need dogs…I have llamas.

        But, seriously, we think it was owls. Our last barn cat was wise in the ways of coyotes. We found him one morning covered in slobber and trembling. He made it to almost five which is awesome for a barn cat. Wisdom can’t defend against the silent wings at night though. One day, he just wasn’t around…

        And we have large dogs but I still shoot at the coyotes.

    8. Ugh, late as always, but The Oatmeal did it.

  17. Oh look! Girls and their dolls

    1. That just seems a bit creepy.

    2. Thanks a fucking bunch. Now I’m gonna have cops after me for child porn.

    3. That one with the pink hair? Future bunny-boiler.

    4. Irrespective of the weirdness, American Girl makes a quality doll.

  18. Your transmission and brakes are closed systems.

    Anonymous Comments

    You can’t walk down the hall at school without wondering if that guy who just made eye contact with you is going to go home and write something disgusting about you on the internet, or if anything you say in class is going to be quoted on a message board as evidence that you are a stupid cow, or if any one of these anonymous commenters is going to take their sexually violent urges offline and onto your body.

    Bounus idiocy:

    Society sees it differently ? at least when the nude photo is of a woman. There aren’t popular revenge porn sites with pictures of naked men, because as a society we don’t think it’s inherently degrading or humiliating for men to have sex.

    False, and 2 seconds of google would have told her that.

    And finally:

    Our current laws were written with an old media system in mind, and they need to be updated to protect free speech while also defending against defamation and gross invasions of personal privacy.

    … Read, promote and raise up women’s voices generally, online and off. And push legislators to modernize our laws.

    Throw out safe harbor protections. It’s for the kids wimmens.

    1. Here is a tip. Don’t let your boyfriend take naked pictures of you and he won’t later be able to post them on the web.

      1. She’s got an answer for that:

        It’s easy to say, “Well if you don’t want naked pictures on the internet, don’t send men naked pictures” ? or in my case, I suppose, just don’t be female on the internet. But that simplistic view overlooks the way intimate relationships operate today, and, in fact, how they’ve always operated.

        No explanation of why that reasoning doesn’t apply child support payments and wearing a condom, though.

        1. “in my case, I suppose, just don’t be female on the internet.”

          Huh? Is she saying she can’t help but post photos of herself?

          And why does she care about how intimate relationships have always operated? Haven’t they always operated with some kind of misogynistic sniping when things go sour? If he’s not sharing a nudie, he’s calling you a whore and generally trying to embarrass you.

          But she’s right. This is all sufficient to restrict speech more.

          1. “in my case, I suppose, just don’t be female on the internet.”

            Huh? Is she saying she can’t help but post photos of herself?

            She gets called on the stupid shit she says all the time. Some of her detractors say hateful things. She believes that this is because she is a woman, and not because she’s a fucking moron.

    2. Two thoughts:

      1. Revenge porn is stupid. Any guy who posts pics of his ex without her permission, whether she gave them freely to him or not, deserves to be strung up by his balls with a piece of piano wire.

      2. Despite my thinking with #1, I think I gave myself a concussion the number of times I facepalmed with the idiocy of that “article”.

      1. The solution to revenge porn is for fathers and older brothers to beat a few shitheals senseless. Anyone who does that deserves a good beating.

        1. You will find no argument from me on that point. It’s what I was thinking when I posted #1 above.

        2. Why discriminate against younger brothers?

          Besides, I reserve the right to defend myself, just like when B’elanna gets mind-raped instead of anonymous-comment-raped.

          1. Fair enough nicole.

        3. Isn’t that a tort? If not, why do they have model release forms?

          1. Yes, it’s tortious. And yes, you’ll have hell getting the appropriate party into court and proving guilt.

      2. As said on this topic before: Being an asshole should not be, in and of itself, a crime. Lest they come for the entire H&R Commentariat. That said, try not to be an asshole IRL, especially about this sort of stuff.

        Although, I definitely checked out texxxan.com. Nobody I know on there, yet. I certainly don’t have any pics to add.

    3. You can’t walk down the hall at school without wondering if that guy who just made eye contact with you is going to go home and write something disgusting about you on the internet

      No guns for *her*!

    4. or if any one of these anonymous commenters is going to take their sexually violent urges offline and onto your body

      So…someone has encountered STEVE SMITH?

    5. Damn feminists always complain about wanting equality then say dumb things that make you want to slap some sense into a bitch.

      1. For me, the hypocrisy of demanding equality while simultaneously demanding perpetual victim status is galling.

        If you want to be equal, at some point you have to be equal.

        1. They’ll let you know when things are “equal enough”. Until then, they have to remain victims in addition to making things more equal due to the decades of oppression… or something.

  20. How to avoid ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ injuries

    The problem with Fifty Shades, as many people who practice kink already have noted, is that it’s fiction, not a how-to

    1. Anyone who reads that book and tries to imitate anything in it deserves to get hurt.

      1. You can tell us the truth–that’s what your woman told you after she kicked you in the balls for trying to pull out her tampon, isn’t it?

    More modern way of living

    Beaufort, N.C.
    Jan,17 2013

    To the Editor:

    Republicans and “so-called” conservatives are at it again. They are claiming that the Constitution gives people the right to have guns without the permission of the government. If that were true, then how could New York and Chicago have laws against it?

    1. We democrats are sick and tired of Republicans constantly using the Constitution to cover up their true plans, which are to make us all afraid of everyone else. Our great president came from a civilized part of the country where there is strict gun control, and he is only trying to bring the benefits of that more modern way of living to the rest of us. I don’t know the exact statistics, but I am quite certain that Chicago is a lot safer than Morehead City, when it comes to gun violence.

      1. But do Conservatives and Republicans listen to the voice of reason? No, of course not. All they want to do is whine and complain about how gun control and wealth redistribution violate the Constitution, as if the Constitution were all that great anyway. There are a lot of things that need to be changed about the Constitution, I’d say, and President Obama needs to change it.

        1. The Republicans are just trying to stand in the way because the President is black. They even dared to question whether he was born in this country. I think all this demonstrates that the Constitution needs to be amended when it comes to the qualifications for being President. Right now it says that a person has to be 35 years old and be a natural born citizen. Well, that is obviously unfair because there are a great many otherwise qualified people who cannot run for president because their mothers had to have a C-section. But because the Constitution was written a hundred years ago, nobody even thought of the discrimination that would result from a doctor having to deliver a baby in this unnatural way. Now that we democrats are in control of the government, thats just one more thing we should change in our drive to make life fair.

          Please withhold my name because I don’t want to get crank calls.

          -PROUD TO BE A DEMOCRAT

          1. *swears under breath*

            Fucking character limits

            1. In a Dicky V word, “AWESOME, BABY”!

          2. Well, that is obviously unfair because there are a great many otherwise qualified people who cannot run for president because their mothers had to have a C-section.

            Pure Gold.

            1. Maybe pure platinum?

              1. MadDuff was from his mother’s womb/untimely ripped.

            2. It would’ve been gold if he didn’t bother explaining it in the next sentence. Yes, we get the joke.

              1. Considering Caesarean sections have been around since, well, at least the time of Caesar, the joke is also incorrect.

              2. It was written for lefties….it has to be explained.

          3. Do people really think this is a democrat writing this?

            If so…

            fucking morons

            Reminds me of the “rape ain’t so bad” fake brady posters that were being defended by grabbers.

      2. I don’t know the exact statistics, but I am quite certain that Chicago is a lot safer than Morehead City, when it comes to gun violence.

        This is just fucking hilarious. I always get the impression that nearly everything that Democrats believe is wrong but it is delicious to see evidence so plainly presented.

        A quick google search shows that in 2010 Chicago had 436 murders or 15.2 per 100,000. Morehead City had 0 murders. In fact, Carteret County where Morehead City is located had a total of 8 murders between 2001 and 2008.

        The plain fact is that by world standards the USA is a non-violent place. Furthermore separating out the very big cities gives us a murder rate that is as low or lower that all the gun-controlled paradises that the Brady Bunch like to extoll.

        1. Incidentally, the previous post is void if there is a different Morehead City other than the one in North Carolina.

          Although it is unlikely that any other Morehead City is more dangerous than Chicago.

        2. I’m pretty sure that whole thing was a troll. Sadly, progzis are beyond such sane concerns.

          1. Yeah, I’m afraid that I might have been taken in by a parody.

            Though, frankly, it’s hard to tell.

            1. I guess I should have read more carefully as well.

              Rereading it see that Suthenboy posted it as an example of great trolling.

              Though as I said, it’s hard to tell. A good many Democratic supporters think exactly like this.

  22. The face of Indiana Law Enforcement caught smuggling drugs into prison.

    I don’t know how he got caught. You would have thought he would have seen it coming.

    1. Officials say Kirby set off the alarm while walking through a metal detector at work Saturday. A fellow correctional officer conducted another scan and the alarm went off again.

      If you’re smuggling drugs through a metal detector, why would you choose to stash them in something metal? This doesn’t make sense.

      1. Have you ever met a prison guard? They don’t get hired for their IQs.

        1. They don’t get hired for their IQs.

          You mean they’re not like cops that are specifically hired for their IQ’s. And by that, I mean their IQ’s being lower than the norm.

      2. most of the time, we catch the stupid ones. shouldn’t be any different for correctional officer criminals.

        like the guy who chooses to RACE at double the speed limit while carrying a stolen gun, and an ounce of cocaine.

        WHY would you choose to draw attention to yourself and do nearly 80 mph on an arterial when you are packing a stolen gun, a bunch of drugs, and are a convicted felon?

        why INDEED

        1. Did he get any jail time? Or did he walk with probation like this fucking piece of shit that killed two people because he was driving twice the speed limit with no lights or siren on while texting and talking on his cellphone?

          BTW, you might want to go back to the prescription drugs thread and re-educate your dumbass self. The one reasoniod that knows the law in that field more than anybody else on here (since that’s what he does for a living) pretty much told you that you’re full of fucking shit.

          1. rubbish. i know the law and i know what happened in that case. the pharmacist can (legally) and did print out the prescription history for the suspect and I did use that as an investigative tool, and he did get convicted.

            1. Yeah, I’m sure the Harvard Law graduate that deals only in medical law knows jack shit about it compared to you.

              1. if he thinks a pharmacist can’t divulge prescription history to me and i can’t use it against a suspect, then he doesn’t know jack shit. because that’s what happened and the case held up.

                i have no idea, nor do i care, if the pharmacist may have violated some sort of ethical code, HPPA, etc. that’s HIS burden to make sure he did not.

                i simply asked for the information and he provided it. those are indisputable facts. that’s how it happened. and the case held up and the info was not suppressed.

                appeals to Harvard degrees, aside

                1. So, as long as you aren’t actively breaking the law, it’s completely kosher if you ask someone to do it for you? Is that really what you think?

                  1. So, as long as you aren’t actively breaking the law, it’s completely kosher if you ask someone to do it for you? Is that really what you think?

                    It is for cops. For the rest of us, there’s conspiracy charges.

                2. Just because an incompetent defense attorney didn’t get the evidence suppressed and the pharmacist charged with a HIPAA (you don’t even know what it’s called!) violation doesn’t make what happened legal. Congratulations! You beat the system and suppressed someone’s 4A Rights to get a conviction for a victimless crime. I hope you came in your pants as the guilty verdict came down. Or were you under the influence of your prescribed opioid at the time the conviction came down?

                3. i have no idea, nor do i care, if the pharmacist may have violated some sort of ethical code, HPPA

                  HIPAA is not just “some sort of ethical code”, it is a federal law. So you are saying that you don’t care if he violates federal law in order to comply with some two-bit cop.

                4. So the guy had shit for defense and the judge slept through the trial. Gotcha, I have seen plenty of cases like that.

                5. The fact that the person had an overworked public defender who didn’t make a proper defense does not mean that what you did was legitimate.

                6. Illegally obtained evidence is generally admissable, with the exception of violations of Constitutional rights triggering the exclusionary rule.

                  The fact that you and the pharmacist conspired to violate the patient’s medical privacy rights doesn’t render the evidence inadmissable, and that’s all the court would have cared about.

                  What I’m telling you is that it was illegal for the pharmacist to disclose that information to you absent formal legal process.

                  You, oddly, don’t seem to care that, as an officer of the law you violated someone’s rights and suborned a third party into violating the law and their professional ethics.

                  Good to know.

        2. YOU NEED TO DIE.

        3. most of the time, we catch the stupid ones shouldn’t be any different for correctional officer criminals.

          ..or for dumb local beat cops who violate HIPAA. In a functioning system the US Atty should have been all over that shit. Don’t forget the civil liability which you and the pharmacist incurred by conspiring (real legal word, flatfoot) to violate federal privacy laws. I hope that the statute of limitations hasn’t run out on this shit. Even if you skate and the pill dispenser goes down it will send a message to the other pill dispensers and you and your fellow bottom-feeders will find that this tactic will no longer work for you.

          1. (stupid character limit)

            Did he get any jail time? Or did he walk with probation

            I’d like to hear you answer Sloop’s question.

            Just because an incompetent defense attorney didn’t get the evidence suppressed and the pharmacist charged with a HIPAA (you don’t even know what it’s called!) violation doesn’t make what happened legal.

            Good point, Sloop, but several minor details.

            Dunphy is a local cop, so this case was probably tried in the Oregon state court system (correct me if I’m wrong, dunphy). HIPAA violations are a federal bust, so would be prosecuted by the US Attorney for the District of Oregon and tried in federal court. Also, the civil suits for HIPAA violations would be tried in federal court.

            While the defense attorney may have been incompetent for not managing to suppress illegally-obtained evidence, you’re fogetting the behind-the-scenes arm twisting that goes on; perhaps the atty was told to STFU about the illegality.

            Of course dunphy has to claim to know their is no HIPAA, because that’s his defense. A defense not available to teh little people.

      3. That’s what you took from the story? How did you miss this low-hanging fruit?

        BTW, this one looks even more better.

  23. Paul Chabot, former drug czar advisor in the Clinton and Bush administrations, defends the criminalization of marijuana because it’s … just like child pornography?

    Still no hat tip?

  24. A police officer I actually feel sorry for.

    Except for the texts from “James Bond.” Maybe he deserved to get canned for that alone.

    1. Did you read any of the comments?

      There were 7 comments and two of them expressed the view that the married woman’s name should have been included in the reportage.

      Boy, there is no shortage of clovers!

    2. Probationary employees can be fired, with the authorization of the Arkansas State Police Commission, with or without cause.

      I am going to move to have ALL LEOs in my state put on probationary status if they are found in violation of their rules or the law.

      1. lol. this is why i advise my recruits not to, despite the money temptation, work a bunch of overtime while still on probation. probationers CAN and ARE fired for anything, often capriciously and you’d be crazy on a cost/benefit analysis basis to open oneself up to additional chances for fuckupedness, just for a little extra $$$ while still on probation.

        for example, iirc, during the rodney king brouhaha, at least one officer (was it wind?) was a probationer and was summarily fired, as opposed to the others who were not.

    3. Do police officers not punch out for lunch then? I honestly do not know.

      I know that if I clock out for lunch and (live close enough to) have sex during my break I wouldn’t be fired. Maybe “on duty” is while in uniform, so a lunch break isn’t the same as it is in an office setting.

    1. You want to be ticked off? Read the comments.

      1. Oh, I did. You see, when a cop gets caught trying to buy drugs from a drug dealer, he needs treatment and has a stressful occupation, so should be forgiven. But when a “civilian” gets caught by that cop’s coworkers, they deserve to have the entire criminal justice system come down on them like a ton of bricks.

        Hey, if his job is too stressful he can fucking quit. It’s no excuse for breaking the law.*

        *I routinely see comment threads on PoliceOne saying officers busted for painkillers, other drugs or victimless DUI’s should be quietly dealt with internally as opposed to in the court system. It’s almost as they view themselves as outside the law or something.

        1. Of course they do. It’s a racket.

        2. That’s impossible. Dunphy tells me that there’s no double standard. Obviously you’re just a cop hater.

  25. “Our great president came from a civilized part of the country where there is strict gun control” and one of the worst homicide rates in the country.

    but hey, way more people are dying per capita than, for example, in RKBA friendly locales like seattle, but i guess they are doing it in a civilized manner.

    i think it would be cool if on a given day in seattle, everybody who was carrying concealed (note: i almost never carry concealed/off duty), carried openly.

    the anti-gunners would be SHOCKED at how many people in their midst were carrying the evul gunz ™. they get away with a useful ignorance, since they can ignore all the CCW’ers… don’t even know they are there. but they ARE there . trust me.

    1. I think the paranoid projection would overcome them, though. Imagine that you’re deathly afraid of spiders and one day you gain the supernatural abilities to see all spiders in your general vicinity, all highlighted in red and super-ominous.

      Maybe, given enough time, you’d come to see that? despite the red highlighting and scary stories? they’re nothing to be afraid of. But just one day of that? It’d drive you fucking bonkers and send you on a spider-killing crusade.

      1. yea. it would be awesome. i guarantee the cops would get scores of 911 calls about “man with a gun” and the pure pleasure of dispatch telling them ‘sorry, it’s legal to openly’ carry would be worth the price of admission

  26. You see, when you’re a schoolteacher and Bengals cheerleader with no violent or criminal past and the “victim” (a willing sexual partner and his parents) of your crime doesn’t want to testify, they still bring charges and ruin your life.

    But when you’re an Orlando cop with a history of violence and witness/evidence tampering charges hanging over your head, the DV charges get dropped when your victim refuses to cooperate.

    But there’s no double standard and no reason for his victim to fear retaliation if she cooperates with prosecutors. Right?

    1. ORLANDOOOOOOO!!! Fuck Lake Eola. (And the pigs in this city.)

  27. “The solution to revenge porn is for fathers and older brothers to beat a few shitheals senseless. Anyone who does that deserves a good beating.”

    street justice. i would imagine there isn’t a lot of revenge porn on charlestown women, for instance.

    1. Glad to know an armed agent of the state is in support of punishment without due process.

      Don’t get me wrong. I’m not surprised.

      1. again, you lie

        where in the above post did i say i support the practice?

        i didn’t

        this is why you are unique and not worthy of responses. whether you lie about case facts (distinguish a person who answers the door ARMED vs. one who answers with a gun in his hand) or make bogus assumptions as above, you will lie, twist, evade, misrepresent, assume, or do whatever else suits your prejudices.

        i never said i supported it, but you claim i did.

        it’s called dishonesty and you specialize in it

        note I quoted the part that said “the solution”. *I* am not saying it’s a valid solution. i was commenting ON the syndrome.

        1. whether you lie about case facts (distinguish a person who answers the door ARMED vs. one who answers with a gun in his hand) or make bogus assumptions as above, you will lie, twist, evade, misrepresent, assume, or do whatever else suits your prejudices.

          Oh, you must mean this case, where you called the guy moron that had it coming.

          Yeah, the only person that lied about that was the cop that shot him dead without announcing his presence in a high crime neighborhood at 1:30 am and shot a guy at the narrowest of angles that totally contradicts the narrative of him swinging open the door and drawing his gun.

          Do you really want to die on this hill, you piece of shit? OK.

          These are actual dunphy quotes on that story where a guy allegedly drew his gun (even if physically impossible based on the architecture of the house and the angle of the bullets:

          this guy chose his own fucking fate

          fuck him

          this guy was a fucking moron begging to get shot

          and he has nobody to blame but his stupid ass-dead self

          this guy was a fucking moron begging to get shot.

          he made his moronic decision and he paid the price.

          The list goes on and on.

          1. Hahahaha. It’s like dunphy never heard of the search function.

  28. if anything you say in class is going to be quoted on a message board as evidence that you are a stupid cow

    “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, the prosecution rests.”

  29. Assault Weapon’s Ban will miss Americas most dangerous guns–handguns

    No fucking shit. The “assault” weapons ban is just a show, like almost everything else the government does in the name of “security.” It’s just an illusion. Yes, handguns far outpace all other guns combined in homicide, but that does not mean anything should be banned.

    1. They know that. They want to ban evil “assault weapons” so that they can move on to other guns later.

      1. With anti-liberty folks… “reasonable” restrictions inevitably become just a first step in a long process of undermining liberty. They will never stop at one thing until they have total control. They will not be satisfied with an assault weapons ban. They will not be satisfied with universal background checks. they will not be satisfied with universal gun registration. They will only be happy when only government officials thugs have guns, and all law abiding citizens are completely disarmed.

        But then it won’t stop there, either. They’ll go after long knives, swords, and anything else that are weapons.

        Let’s face it. They’ll never be happy. They’re like drug addicts looking for their next fix… or something to ‘fix’.

    2. Back to the 1980s!

    3. No, handguns are dangerous to black kids. A nation filled with AR-15s is dangerous to would-be tyrants, technocrats, and their paramilitary enforcers. As far as the Progressive Reich is concerned, the AR-15 is a danger, the handgun is doing Gaia’s population-culling work in some of America’s most dangerous neighborhood.

  30. “Our current laws were written with an old media system in mind, and they need to be updated to protect free speech while also defending against defamation and gross invasions of personal privacy.”

    there already ARE civil remedies for many of these revenge porn escapades. volokh.com covered a few of them a ways back. civil stuff like this is not my forte, but in brief – there often is a civil remedy.

    granted, the streisand effect applies, and once the cat is out of the bag. well, that pussy can’t be stuffed back in. the intertoobs never forget.

    1. civil stuff like this is not my forte,

      4A stuff isn’t, either.

    2. civil stuff like this is not my forte

      Nope, it ain’t. Because cops enforce criminal code, not civil. But thanks for bloviating.

      4A stuff isn’t, either.

      Well, not in a legal sense. But I’ll give the officer this – he certainly knows what he can get away with in a practical sense.

    Home schooling becoming hipster. It is just so ironic.

    1. Well, there’s another demographic that won’t be coming for my job, ever. If hipsters are homeschooling, I don’t see the curriculum going heavy on STEM topics.

  32. California’s version of pension reform exempts thousands of state workers, at the behest of the Teamsters union.

  33. Some pigs are more equal than others:

    Man gets arrested for spitting on the sidewalk, by a cop who then spits on the sidewalk.

    1. According to the law, a law enforcement officer can stop and search someone who committed, is committing or is about to commit a crime.

      Um, no?

      1. That’s a Terry stop. It’s bullshit but SCOTUS said it’s ok.

  34. Man those guys jsut dont seem to have a clue!

    1. those guys
      You’ll need to be more specific.

  35. Oprah loves foreskin on her face.

    Gotta love the Jezzie slant on this. They don’t see what all the fuss is.

    1. “The group’s founder, Glen Callender, claims that Oprah is a hypocrite because she opposes female genital mutilation but then buys and endorses a skin cream?at $165 a jar?that uses the stuff they throw away after male circumcision.”

      Circumcision FTW.

      1. Thanks for quoting from the article so the rest of us don’t have to read it.

        I figured it was a reference to Oprah liking giving oral sex to uncut guys or something.

    2. Male and female circumcision are like totes diff. One is like to control you and stuff and reduce your libido and the other produces like a very useful natural resource.

    1. HAMSTERFUGE!

      (I am still crying over here)

    A thing once seen, cannot be unseen.

  38. US appeals court overturns key portion of EPA’s renewable fuels mandate

    Under a 2007 law designed to boost the US alternative-fuel industry, the EPA sets requirements each year for buying renewable fuel, which can be made from corn and soybeans as well as other materials.

    For 2012, the agency estimated six companies would produce about 8.65 million gallons of advanced “cellulosic” fuel made from inedible parts of plants, such as corn stalks and wood chips. It required US refiners, fuel importers, and blenders to purchase that amount of cellulosic fuel in 2012, or pay a fine.

    But the agency’s projections turned out to be too high — about 20,000 gallons were produced in the US last year, according to EPA data. As a result, the oil industry said it was facing more than $8 million in fines.

    They were “only” off by a factor of 430x !! That’s your EPA at work.

  39. An article in which Gary Busey teaches you how to have sex with an innertube.

    For the fellas:
    -With the inner tube flat, cut a hole in it approximate to the size of your member
    -Purchase rubber hosing from “the marine supply office depot”
    -Apply the hosing to the hole
    -Insert “your pleasure body parts” into the hole
    -Pump & fuck the inner tube “from the top of the river to the bottom of the river”
    For the ladies:
    -Place a battery charged pleasure device on the exterior of the inner tube
    -Insert yourself on the device
    -*Gary makes sound effects to simulate the sound of thrusting or pumping*
    -“You won’t get pregnant”
    -“The inner tube won’t get pregnant, nor will the woman”

    1. they are not moderated!

      The freedom! The horrible, horrible freedom!

      … Hobbit

  40. MSNBC makes hay of video of Newtown victim’s father testifying before Congress, being interrupted by gun rights advocates shouting “the second amendment shall not be infringed”.

    Only problem? He wasn’t interrupted. He turned around and dared anyone in the audience to give a reason why people should be allowed to own “assault weapons”, which is what the people were responding to. Somehow that part wound up on the cutting room floor.
