Yes, yes, I do respect cops a great deal

But this guy? I think Karma got him frankly

A Riverside County sheriff’s deputy was hospitalized Wednesday after accidentally shooting himself in the leg when a large dog approached him at a Riverside home.

A Riverside County sheriff’s spokesperson said the deputy was serving court documents to a resident in the 3000 block of Eucalyptus Avenue at about 2 p.m. when a dog came at him aggressively.

Bob Owens adds some context

Even after he was downed by his own shot, the dog never attacked the officer. As the dog was on it’s own property, didn’t attack the deputy, and was, well simply being a dog, no charges are going to be filed against the dog or its owner (who was not the target of the eviction notice).

Hopefully, the deputy will learn for this bit of karma and the next time he encounters a barking dog, he will take a moment to see if a dog is actually a threat before attempting to kill it.

Amen

Did you ever notice that stories that start with “Transgender Animal Rights Extremist” never end well?

Donald Douglas has noticed this trend. By the way, who knew that there were transgender animals, or that they had rights ;)

At London’s Daily Mail, “Former soldier who became animal rights commander is jailed for six years over campaign of terror against animal testing company.”

Here’s a particularly grizzly account at the Times of Zambia, “Animal rights activist jailed for blackmail plot“: 

Debbie Vincent, a 52-year-old former soldier who underwent a sex change, was found guilty last month for her part in a conspiracy to blackmail British-based Huntingdon Life Sciences (HLS).

Vincent became the public face of Stop Huntingdon Animal Cruelty (SHAC) after seven members of the group were jailed for a total of 50 years in 2009 for their role in the campaign.

Members of the group falsely accused HLS staff members of being paedophiles, sent them hoax bombs and sanitary towels claimed to be infected with AIDS, and caused criminal damage to their cars and homes.

In May 2009, activists dug up a grave in Switzerland and removed an urn containing the ashes of the mother of Daniel Vasella, the then-chairman of Swiss pharmaceutical giant Novartis, one of HLS’ suppliers.

Sentencing Vincent at Winchester Crown Court in southeast England, judge Keith Cutler said: “It is difficult for a judge to calculate the repugnance felt by society to such appalling acts.

“Nothing at all could justify such attacks.”

He added: “You express no shred of remorse or condemnation for the incidents of extreme terror and desecration which have been caused.”

A group of Vincent’s supporters held placards outside the court reading “No Excuse for Animal Abuse” and “Against Animal Testing and State Repression”.

Sick bastards!

Here we go again, more Leftist bullies

Seven ill-educated and misguided students at Washington 7 Lee University are offended by Robert E. Lee and are demanding “Tolerance” or something

Some Washington & Lee University law students want the university to live by its honor code and stop glorifying its namesake by acknowledging the dishonorable side of both Robert E. Lee and W&L.

Seven multiracial students, calling themselves The Committee, have demanded that W&L remove the flags of the Confederacy from the campus and Lee Chapel, acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery, recognize Martin Luther King Day on the undergraduate campus and ban neo-Confederates from marching across campus to the chapel on Lee-Jackson Day.

If their demands are not met by Sept. 1, they will engage in civil disobedience.

University President Kenneth Ruscio on Wednesday issued a letter to the W&L community that said “we take these students’ concerns seriously. The issues they have raised are important, and we intend to address them.”

Ruscio said W&L invites a prominent speaker during MLK Legacy Week; the undergraduate faculty decides whether classes are held on MLK day; the eight battle flags in Lee Chapel, representing armies of the Confederate States of America, are educational and historical, and the university does not observe Lee-Jackson Day.

His message did not indicate whether W&L would meet any of the students’ demands, but that he invited them to meet with the University Committee on Inclusiveness and Campus Climate that has been holding focus groups on these same issues.

The students said that they emailed the committee four days ago and had yet to hear a response.

The university should tell these seven cry babies to learn something about Lee. If they did they would likely be ashamed of themselves. He was an honorable man, who fought for his home, and who considered slavery an abomination, and did his best to heal the country after the war. He was also a proponent of freeing the slaves during the war, and a man who deserves to have his memory taught in total, and not through the prism of Leftist fantasy.

My niece loves Wipeout, the  ABC show, so I tape it and watch it with her. She especially enjoys me doing a funny voice for her stuffed zebra while the contestants “wipeout”. The show is funny, and one of the hosts is, or was, Vanessa Lachey. I have featured Vanessa before, but I had to present a few pics again. She is lovely, and seems to be sweet

Liberals think WAY too much, get offended WAY too easily

Some micro-aggression BS for you via Blackmailers Don’t Shoot

Go read some of the things posted on the their Facebook page, here is just one example. But what struck me was that the whiners posting over there in love with drama, and being a victim. So much so, I believe most of the “incidents” reported are made up.

Lest anyone think that an education at UC Santa Barbara is all fun and parties, the UCSB Microaggressions Facebook page reminds us that the struggle continues. This brave warrior took someone to task over a correct assumption.

Lesbians get away with everything these days

Sometimes I read a headline and think to myself, if a man did that they would bury him under the jail

The legal age of consent in England is 16, and if you tell a jury you didn’t know your partner’s age, you may go scot-free:

A female radio DJ who had sex with a 15-year-old girl after plying her with vodka has walked free from court because she did not know the teenager’s real age.
Emma Stanfield, 40, said she thought the girl was 16 and only found out her true age the morning after the night they spent together at her Oxford apartment.
The prosecution claimed that Ms Stanfield knew the girl was underage and then ‘recklessly’ pursued her, leaving her 29 missed calls and more than 100 Facebook messages in the days that followed.

So, let me be clear. I can see the I thought she was older defense, to a point. Believe it or not there are teens who will lie, I know we all want to think of a 15-year-old as a child, but some are not so innocent and bear some responsibility for their actions. But, once the Lesbian in question found out this girl was, as we say in America, jail bait, why did she pursue her? 100 Facebook messages? 29 calls? Sorry but I do not buy that. She took advantage, getting the girl drunk, which is another big red flag. 

So, how did a jury reach a not guilty verdict? Maybe the fact that this was a Lesbian taking advantage of a young girl had something to do with it. Anyone seriously think a man who did the very same thing would get off with no jail time? Face it, we  live in a world with many double standards. A 30-year-old male teacher has consensual sex with a 16 year-old female student, and he is a dirty old man and she a completely innocent victim. But reverse the genders and the reaction of many is different isn’t it? In that case the woman is seen by some as introducing a young man to adulthood, and the kid? Well he is going to receive pats on the back, and some “atta boys” isn’t he? See, double standards.

It has always amazed me how society, as a whole uses different standards for the two genders ( yes, there are TWO genders, not three or four, or whatever). A man goes out and gets laid by numerous ladies, he is seen as a stud, and he is likely to be pursued by more women. If a woman has numerous partners, she is called a slut. Is that fair? Well, no, but we do have different moral expectations for the genders. That is just a fact of life. And, it seems, if the story above is any indication, we have different expectations for different sexual orientations as well. The 40-year-old Lesbian who got a 15-year-old drunk and had sex with her is no better than a 40-year-old man who did the same thing. Neither is the 40-year-old any better if the genders are reversed in either scenario. A pervert is a pervert folks, we need to recognize that. We need to heed our moral compasses which tell us, if we listen, that all 40-year-olds should leave all 15 year-olds alone!

Feminism is not pro-woman, it is anti-woman

The Other McCain has some news that may shock you, or, given the moral retardation of Feminists, maybe not

The wretched cowardice of Brandeis University in rescinding an honorary degree for human rights activist Aayan Hirsi Ali surprised a lot of people. A victim of female genital mutilation (FGM), Ali was the target of terroristic threats in the Netherlands for speaking out against Islamic oppression of women. The question was asked, “Where’s the feminist anger at Brandeis over Ayaan Hirsi Ali?”

Brace yourself for the answer: Phyllis Chesler looked at the Brandeis faculty petition against Ali and found that 21% of the signatures came from faculty associated with the university’s Women and Gender Studies (WGS) program. As a matter of fact, it appears that the controversial petition actually originated with WGS faculty members.

Sick, sick, sick! The Left is so obsessed with “equality” and so convinced that Western culture is not  better than other cultures, that they refuse to see the truth that is plain as day to anyone with half an eye open.

The faculty petition claimed that, by honoring Aayan Hirsi Ali, Brandeis would suggest “to the public that violence toward girls and women is particular to Islam . . .  thereby obscuring such violence in our midst among non-Muslims, including on our own campus,” and concluded:  ”We cannot accept Ms. Hirsi Ali’s triumphalist narrative of western civilization, rooted in a core belief of the cultural backwardness of non-western peoples.”

Go read it all. It will stun you. It would appear that “Feminists” are Leftist, more than they are pro-women wouldn’t it? This is more about hating Western culture, and of course America, than it is about anything else. Again, to the Left mentioning that many women are treated horribly in most Islamic nations is equal to heresy. Making such judgments, even when facts support those judgments is unacceptable to the Left. Nothing, it seems is as intolerable to the Left as inequality, and noting that some religions and cultures treat women worse than others is seen by the Left as teaching inequality.

Wendy Davis, not even the loony Leftists at MSNBS like her!

When the Left first started saying they wanted Wendy Davis to be the next governor of Texas, I rolled my eyes so hard it hurt. Everyone here knows that Greg Abbott will follow Governor Perry, and I am sure he will be a great governor. Wendy Davis? Come on! Too many Texans see her for what she is, a fraud. The Other McCain notes that even MSNBS has abandoned Abortion Barbie

Simple answer: Because she’s an embarrassing loser!

The liberal journalists at MSNBC have been quite enamored with Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis, constantly promoting her Democratic campaign. Yet, a new poll showing her trailing by 14 points has gone unmentioned on the network. Even more interesting, Republican candidate Greg Abbott is beating Davis even among women, 49-41. The Public Policy Polling survey was released on Tuesday.

Ah, Wendy, Buh Bye! Maybe you are better suited to a different line of work 

The University of Michigan should boot everyone of these miscreants out of school!

Opinions are fine, expressing is fine, but threatening violence? If I run University of Michigan, these little Leftists would be out yesterday!

Activists with the radical pro-affirmative action group, By Any Means Necessary, staged a protest on Tuesday featuring a black Detroit high school student who was denied admission to the University of Michigan.

The student, Brooke Kimbrough, claimed UM rejected her because of her “morals,” and not her below-average ACT score of 23. (The average U-M student has a score between 28 and 32.)

“I believe that I have been rejected because of the morals that I stand for,” said Kimbrough, according to Fox 2 news. “I will take back my freedom as a tool to help others. I have left the plantation to get my freedom but I am coming back for you, too. I will make it my civic duty to document every news of a rejection letter that the university produces to our black, brown and red bodies.”

Kimbrough’s comments follow weeks of increasing tensions over race at U-M. BAMN activists, as well as minority students with the Black Student Union, another group, have continuously demanded increased black and Latino enrollment, even though a state constitutional amendment prohibits administrators from considering race as a factor toward admission.

Earlier this year, BSU made a list of demands and threatened “physical action,” if they were not met. The most costly demand was met almost immediately, as administrators hastily approved a $300,000 renovation to the UM multicultural center. University officials have also met frequently to listen to BSU’s demands and assuage their concerns about diversity on campus.

Instead of coddling these bullies, the university should have shown them the door. Threats of violence should be an automatic ticket OUT of school! But, because the university is afraid of being called, say it with me, RAAAAACIST, it is caving in to these intolerable thugs who want to destroy all standards of excellence.

Liberal comic agrees with mark Steyn on PC, receives large doses of Liberal “tolerance”

The First Rule of Leftism? 

Thou Shalt Not Question Leftism

Oswalt, a prolific character actor and stand-up, retweeted a column by noted conservative Mark Steyn that swatted our P.C. mindset.

Steyn, Oswalt tweeted, “hit it out of the park” on the issue of speech codes and our growing cultural penchant for stifling free speech.

That didn’t sit well with his liberal followers, forcing the comic to send out this explanatory Tweet:

Mayor Statist is back

Oh Bloomberg, he just does not quit does he? No matter how often he fails, no matter how wrong he is, he just keeps writing checks

Bloomberg, bless his heart, seems convinced that the real problem is his marketing, and so he’s sinking $50 million dollars to launch yet another citizen control group, Everytown for Gun Safety.

In his first major political investment since leaving office, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg announced plans to build a nationwide network aimed at curbing gun violence and battling the National Rifle Association, according to published reports.

Bloomberg told the New York Times that he is planning to spend $50 million this year to establish the grassroots gun control lobbying group, called Everytown for Gun Safety.

The new organization will encompass two other Bloomberg-funded gun control groups – Mayors Against Illegal Guns and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America – and will first take aim at expanding background checks for gun buyers both at the state and national levels, according to the Times.

Everytown for Gun Safety will borrow from some of the NRA’s field operation tactics to grow influence, targeting mothers and other women that might be swayed on gun issues. The group has already targeted 15 states across the country with varying views on gun control, with the goal of recruiting 1 million new supporters.

Bloomberg’s Achilles heel is that he thinks that a) authoritarianism is the solution for every problem, and b) that throwing more money at the issue is how to make authoritarianism palatable. What he doesn’t seem to be able to grasp despite his considerable business success is that many and perhaps most Americans aren’t driven primarily by money, but by a love of liberty and individual sovereignty.

I would argue that Bloomberg’s weakness is his insatiable thirst for power over the lives of others. He cannot stand to be told no, or to have anyone differ from him. He knows best for you, and damn you if you dare disagree. Bloomberg despises freedom, and individualism because he is a Statist. Therefore he will spend any amount of money, and tell as many lies, and intimidate in any way he can to dictate your choices to you! He is  a dangerous man, never forget that. We must never underestimate his fanatical hunger for power. If given his way, he would dictate what we eat, drink, how we raise our children, and completely strip away any right to self-defense.

Thief brings hammer to a gunfight, predictable results follow

Crime, it does not pay

If you’re going to break into a jewelry story, make certain that the owner isn’t there, especially if he happens to be pretty handy with a shotgun:

A jewelry store owner shoots and kills a suspected thief breaking in Monday morning. Just before 1 a.m. police say Robert Trevino, 41, broke the glass door of Harper’s Fine Jewelry with a hammer.

Elgin Police Chief Chris Bratton says the owner, Juan Torres, happened to be in the back of the store.

“The owner was in the back room when the suspect broke out the front door using a hammer and was attempting to go through the jewelry cases,” said Bratton.

Torres fired a 12-gauge shotgun hitting Trevino in the neck. He died inside the store.

“As best we can tell the suspect turned toward the owner with something in his hand which we found out was the hammer and then he shot him one time killing him instantly,” said Bratton.

The store owner was defending himself it would seem, but, Bob Owens points out that he might be in some hot water for firing on the thief’s accomplices

After turning Trevino’s neck into a pink mist, Torres preceded outside, where he opened fire on Trevino’s accomplices in the getaway car. Sulema Sanchez and Amanda Yanes were mildly wounded by broken glass from Torres’s shots, and both are in the Bastrop County Jail on burglary charges.

Torres’s shooting of Trevino seems easily justifiable under castle doctrine. His decision to leave the store and fire upon accomplices might end up putting him on the wrong side of the law.

If you ever face a similar circumstance, it would be wiser to stay inside from both tactical and legal perspectives.

Absolutely. He  ought to have stayed IN his store, and used lethal force IF he was attacked further. The object is always to stop the threat, going  beyond that puts in a gray area legally. Be smart!

New York gun owners to Statist NY government, I got you registration right here!

LOVE THIS!

The state of New York gave gun owners who owned so-called “assault weapons” before the passage of the SAFE Act, a hastily-passed gun control law, until April 15, 2014, to register them with the state government.

On Tuesday, the deadline, New York gun owners and Second Amendment rights advocates gathered in downtown Buffalo, N.Y., and shredded gun registration forms in an act of protest.

New York lawmakers have “shredded” their constitutional rights, so it’s only fitting the gun registration forms get the same treatment, protesters reportedly said.

Johnathan Alter Defining Insanity

That definition of insanity is, of course, doing the same things over and over and expecting different results. Alter, who apparently is not all that bright, wonders when Liberals are going to try another boycott of Rush Limbaugh

Former Newsweek editor Jonathan Alter appeared on The Ed Show, Tuesday, to lobby for more boycotts of the “racist” Rush Limbaugh. The radio host’s crime, according to the writer, is making a few joking comments about the shoe-throwing incident involving Hillary Clinton. On his show, Limbaugh mused, “I can totally relate to people who think that everything the Clintons do is staged…I just don’t attach much genuineness to them.”  

Limbaugh allowed, “Maybe it’s because in my subconscious, I think it was staged.” Alter railed against Limbaugh, assailing, “When do more boycotts of Rush Limbaugh’s sponsors come? You know, there’s been some racist garbage over the years. He’s been racist on any number of occasions. ” Alter lamented that there has only been ” a little bit of a boycott” over past incidents. [MP3 audio here.]

Oh Johnny, Johnny, Johnny, you are a special kind of stupid aren’t you? Every time thought bigots like you have boycotted Rush, the boycott has not only failed, but has proven to make Rush more popular. But go ahead and boycott there Johnny, and while you are at it, go ahead and bang your head against a brick wall too.

LIberalism is an Ideology for the racially obsessed

This is just sad

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.”

The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth.

The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform.

“I’ve said before and I’ll say it again, that we as a faculty and staff and student body, as an administration, if we 10 years from now are as white as we are today, we will have failed as a university,” said Bruce Shepard, president of WWU, in a 2012 address.

And the Left wonders why we cannot get past race? Maybe because that is all they focus on.
