These assholes are taking my money, and if I owe them a single fucking penny, they’ll come after me without mercy.

They give our tax dollars in the billions to ILLEGAL ALIENS!

What the fuck?

I don’t think I need to say anything else. Ace covers it.

National Day of Blogger Silence — This Friday.

I’m writing a post about what’s happened to Ali Akbar. It’s taking some time.

Warning: DO NOT CLICK ON ANY SITE YOU DON’T TRUST ABOUT THIS STORY. I think there is reasonable grounds for suspicion that your IP will be captured, and a malicious tracking cookie (or worse) inserted onto your computer.

Do not click on any of the “bad” sites for this. Only go to trusted sites.

I am sorry if this warning comes too late — I had it in my actual post on Ali.

Have Internet Situational Awareness, here. I do not know if my suspicious are accurate, but there is no harm in being prudent.

Wow.
Here comes the Judge…

The left will spin this shit until the cows come home. Just remember, he didn’t do shit but say “go” on this one. But listening to him and his cronies, it’s as if he led the fucking mission.

Piss off pogue.

Barack Obama’s Stolen Valor

It may or may not be a coincidence that film director Kathryn Bigelow and screenwriter Mark Boal have an October 2012 release date for a movie about the killing of Osama bin Laden. There is little doubt, however, that the Obama campaign will use it to remind voters that the perpetrator of 9/11 died on Barack Obama’s watch. Those who oppose this self-serving exploitation of the valor of our Navy SEALs can turn it against the Obama campaign with a short and simple response: “Obama’s Stolen Valor.” It is in fact short enough to fit on a bumper sticker.

“Stolen Valor” refers to charlatans who claim falsely to have served in the Armed Forces and/or who wear medals they have not earned. Barack Obama’s sole claim on any role in the takedown of Osama bin Laden stems from the fact that it happened on his watch, as did the more recent loss of 22 SEALs and eight other service members in a helicopter crash in Afghanistan.

Just wow. I never thought I’d see the day where a judge on the Ninth Circuit actually had some sense. He’s a Bush appointee, which probably says a lot in and of itself.

Judge Milan Smith Has Had It With the Ninth Circuit’s Environmental Cases

“Here we go again,” Judge Milan Smith starts in his epic broadside (PDF) against the Ninth Circuit’s anti-prosperity, bureaucracy-boosting environmental decisions. The Bush 43 appointee has had enough:

I cannot conclude my dissent without considering the impact of the majority’s decision in this case, and others like it, which, in my view, flout our precedents and undermine the rule of law. . . .

By rendering the Forest Service impotent to meaningfully address low impact mining, the majority effectively shuts down the entire suction dredge mining industry in the states within our jurisdiction. . . . As a result, a number of people will lose their jobs and the businesses that have invested in the equipment used in the relevant mining activities will lose much of their value. In 2008, California issued about 3,500 permits for such mining, and 18 percent of those miners received “a significant portion of income” from the dredging. See Justin Scheck, California Sifts Gold Claims, The Wall Street Journal, April 29, 2012. The gold mining operation in this case, the New 49ers, organizes recreational weekend gold-mining excursions. The majority’s opinion effectively forces these people to await the lengthy and costly ESA consultation process if they wish to pursue their mining activities, or simply ignore the process, at their peril.

Unfortunately, this is not the first time our court has broken from decades of precedent and created burdensome, entangling environmental regulations out of the vapors. In one of the most extreme recent examples, our court held that timber companies must obtain Environmental Protection Agency permits for stormwater runoff that flows from primary logging roads into systems of ditches, culverts, and channels. Nw. Envtl. Def. Ctr. v. Brown, 640 F.3d 1063 (9th Cir. 2011). In the nearly four decades since the Clean Water Act was enacted, no court or government agency had ever imposed such a requirement. Indeed, the EPA promulgated regulations that explicitly exempted logging from this arduous permitting requirement. Yet our court decided to disregard the regulation and require the permits.

The result? The imminent decimation of what remains of the Northwest timber industry.
