Jack Russells are fun to watch in action...



I know some bloggers who are like this.  

It aint me, it aint me, I ain't no Senator's spouse: Senator Feinstein's husband will get a nice commission on the sale of United States Postal System properties.

When I heard this story for the first time, I immediately thought of John Fogerty's Fortunate Son...

Windfall!  
It is good to be married to a Senator!  Hey, how do you think Harry Reid became a multi-millionaire?

Come visit warm sunny Mexico!

I am glad she got out, but this is not helping to promote Mexican tourism!  
You need to listen to this when reading this story...

New Yorkers going nuts for the cronut...Updated with latest Nanny Bloomberg news!


There is already a black market for cronuts...
Insanely Delicious! 


Mad Mayor Bloomberg cannot take such culinary enjoyment!  

Update:  Former pot smoker Mad Mayor Bloomberg refuses to recognize medical marijuana, fearing an out break of recreational use and cronut consumption.  

Eric Holder needs to go...

Time to go...
There are two Obama Administration individuals who are absolutely toxic.  Eric Holder is one.  Valerie Jarrett is the other.  Holder has been involved in almost every wrong decision and scandal of the Obama Administration.  And his past is finally catching up with him.  Holder should be prosecuted, but at a minimum has to be sent packing.

America's First War On Terror: The Barbary Pirate Wars

Burning of the Frigate Philadelphia in the Harbor of Tripoli,
Painting by Edward Moran 1897
"The most bold and daring act of the age."
Horatio Nelson
In the early 1800s, the United States of America fought two small but fierce wars with the Islamic states of Algiers, Tunis, Tripoli and the independent Sultanate of Morocco.  The first war's turning point was the Battle of Derna, where a mercenary force lead by U.S. Marines took the City of Derna in a combined overland and naval attack.

The Battle for Tripoli was adverted by a premature peace treaty.  Derna was returned to the Pasha.
Tripoli Momument, U.S. Navel Academy 
A Tripolitan observer of the time was quoted as saying: “The English, French, and Spanish Consuls have told us that they [the Americans] were a young nation, and got their independence by means of France; that they had a small navy and their officers were inexperi­enced, and they were merely a nation of merchants, and that by taking their ships and men, we should get great ransoms. Instead of this, their Preble pays us a coin of shot, shells, and hard blows; and sent a Decatur, in a dark night with a band of Christian dogs fierce and cruel as the tiger, who killed our brothers and burnt our ships before our eyes.”
Unfortunately the hostage and privateering practices of the Barbary States did not end there.  They soon started up again and the Barbary States took advantage of the War of 1812 and the United States' preoccupation with Great Britain.  It was only after the war concluded that Stephen Decatur led another force to the Mediterranean which after two Barbary ships being seized resulted in negotiations which ended the hostage taking practices of these states.

Scott Thorson jailed just before the premier of Behind The Candelabra...

Having just watched the movie (based on Thorson's book), I am really not surprised...
On Wisconsin!  Liberace was from West Allis, Wisconsin.  I did like the film (especially Dan Ackroyd as Liberace's manager and Debbie Reynolds as Liberace's mom).

But I'm A Cheerleader: So I can't be a criminal...?

But I'm a Cheerleader is a comedy film about a girl finding out she is a lesbian...

The reality is a wee bit different than the movie, and not funny at all
(especially for the victim's family).
  
Kaitlyn Hunt Smith, an 18 year old who likes to have sex with a 14 year old...

Now if she were on the football team (and a male) would
the media narrative be harsher for her?  
Kaitlyn Hunt Smith is an 18 year old who sexually assaulted a 14 year old girl.  I use the term sexually assaulted because the age of consent in this case is 16.  There is not dispute that these individuals engaged in sexual activities, one being legally an adult and the other a child under the age of consent.  Kaitlyn and her mother, tried to make this out to be a case of homophobia.  Except that is not the case.  What they leave out is the parents of the 14 year old complained and asked Kaitlyn to stay away from their daughter twice, before going to the prosecutor and police.  

This is not about Kaitlyn Hunt Smith being gay (or bisexual or whatever she is) but about her taking sexual advantage of a 14 year old girl after being repeatedly warned to stay away from her.

The only reason I bring up the work of Peck is the fact that I think it is the only way to even begin to comprehend what is going on in Florida.  Let’s begin with Steven Hunt. It is not an attach on his character to reveal the fact that he has a somewhat unsavory record.  There were other arrests.  He was one time a cop, fired from his job for lying.There are a growing number of us, thanks to the yoeman’s work that R. S. McCain (yes, that R. S. McCain – the one I’m usually complaining about) has been doing. The Pink Flamingo is providing a link to his blog.  Just go from there.  He is doing some excellent work, and has been on this story from the beginning.  I don’t mind admitting that I ignored it until I discovered that Kaitlyn Hunt’s victim was not 15, as her parents had insisted, and she 17 when the ‘romance’ began, but she was well over 18 and the victim was only 14 years old.  That changed the story.  I have been on record, many times, stating that some of the so-called statutory rape charges between a guy who was a few years older than his 16, 17, or even almost 16 year old girl friend, were often unwarranted.  Then again, if there is a larger spread in ages, lock him up. Lock her up.  There is no difference in gender here, just in intent.
We are dealing with some very strange family dynamics.  For this, read in detail, the most recent post by McCain.  It is a very nasty story.  It is also where The Pink Flamingo wants to start using that dreaded “E” word.  I did not think this was originally a tale of ‘evil’.  I do now.  I don’t know what the original intent of the 18 year old young woman was when it came to the 14 year old minor.  I don’t think it was wholesome.  I don’t think she had the best interest the person she said she cared about in mind when she basically picked her up on the steps of the 14 year old’s home and kept her at her home for a weekend of fun and sex.
That’s illegal.  If you stop and check the percentages of 18 year old guys who go at it with 14 year old girls, you would find the numbers are almost shockingly low, no matter what we’re lead to believe.  The average, normal, 18 year old – male or female – knows that anyone under the age of 16 is jail bait.  If they are over the age of 18, anyone basically under 18 is just that – jail bait.  It’s a fact of life, male, female, gay, or lesbian. You don’t have sex with an underage child.
We’ve given her the benefit of the doubt.
But….
When her parents lie about the 14 year old and her age, well, they’re protecting their little darling who just managed to get in over hear head.  Her father is a documented liar.  Does that change the story?  Does the story change when her parents publish the name and age of the 14 year child their adult daughter has molested?
When does it become evil?
Does it become evil when Steve Hunt begins raising tens of thousands of dollars to purchase merchandise about his daughter?
When does it become evil?
Does it become evil after the 14 year old is lied about, her parents exposed, and her future basically threatened?
You know, I think it does.
I think this entire situation reeks of something terribly evil. The Pink Flamingo is not afraid to call it what it is.  It is evil.  It is an evil that seduces and steals the innocence of a child.  It is an evil where well-meaning people embrace the attractive blond young women, and don’t quite want to accept the mixed race child she molested.
What this tale should not be is:

  • Christian v. Atheist
  • Liberal v. Conservative
  • Democrat v. Republican
  • Straight v. Gay
It is good verses evil. Our society should have the maturity and wisdom to understand the difference before that witch hunt gets all emotional and an innocent 14 year old little girls is metaphorically burned at the stake of good intentions.
Update:
I am not shocked by an 18 year old with a 14 year old, but I do find it a problem when that 18 year old gets two warnings from the 14 year old girl's parents to back off, the age of consent where this is occurring is 16, and the 18 fails to do so.  That is a crime and it should be punished.  
DaTechGuy draws a conclusion looking at the Edward Snowden case and the Kaitlyn Hunt Smith matter...
DaTechGuy makes an important point:
One of the oddities of the Church’s s sex scandals has been the media simultaneously pushing the guilt of the Catholic Church while ignoring it was overwhelmingly a scandal of gay men having sex with underage boys. This is, as Stacy McCain would call it, a Neutral objective fact yet the fastest way to get yourself called a hater or a bigot or to produce outrage or anger from the gay community is to point this out.

Bob Menendez says Gang of Eight Immigration Reform Bill does not have 60 votes yet...

Tip for Republicans:  Anything involving intercourse with Senator Menendez is probably a bad idea...
Bob Menendez says the bill does not have sufficient votes to get approved by the Senate.  Good news.  This bill is terribly flawed and while the status quo is not good, this law (if it passes) makes things worse.  

Marco Rubio:  Being sandwiched by Schumer and Menendez is probably not a place you should be...

The new marriage equity: Barack Obama and the Mainstream Media

Many of us find it distasteful and creepy, but they want to make it the new normal...
CBS News President, David Rhodes, is the brother of Obama’s deputy national security, Ben Rhodes. Ben Rhodes was instrumental in changing the Benghazi talking points. Now, the top turds at CBS are trying to dump Sheryl Attkisson, the only CBS investigative reporter with a set of gonads. CBS says her reporting on Benghazi is bordering on “advocacy”. She was also the reporter who broke the Fast & Furious story.
Update:
Although if Barack Obama is losing the New Yorker...
