Here’s today’s Rock Fest!

And since I’ve been remiss, a time, or two, I’ll throw a twofer out there.

Here’s a couple classic tunes from Led Zeppelin –

Babe I’m Gonna Leave You…

And for the second, The Lemon Song…

Been busy today.

Here’s today’s reading list:

This is a step in the right direction.
More needs to be done.

Temporary Victory: Aaron Walker’s First Amendment Rights Restored; Judge Stays Brett Kimberlin’s “Peace Order” Against Him

The “peace order” issued by an incompetent judge had stripped Aaron Walker of his First Amendment rights, ordering him to not mention Brett Kimberlin publicly.

That order has been stayed, with a full hearing to decide if the order should stand or fall on July 5th. Note, however, that emergency relief (as here) is usually given only when there is a “substantial” likelihood of prevailing on the ultimate merits, so, at the moment, it seems likely the peace order will be struck down on July 5th, too.


Here’s what came out of the SCOTUS today.

The MSM continues to fail at its primary function.

 They should just drop the charade and tell everyone up front that they’re spinning everything and are no longer the media, but a propaganda arm of the DNC.

Here’s another fine DBD cartoon.

Makes one wonder WTF?

That’s a lot of doe-ray-me for no affect on poverty levels. Maybe we should rethink this whole thing and kick some of these assholes off welfare. Then again, I can think of one way to reduce it by 41% alone! Undo Obama.

Drug tests are a good start. I gotta take one to get a job, they should have to take one to get welfare.

My guess is that would cut about 40% off too.

Now we’re down to only 19%! It’s just sarcasm, don’t get your panties in a bunch.

Study: More Than Half a Trillion Dollars Spent on Welfare – But Poverty Levels Unaffected
“The vast majority of current programs are focused on making poverty more comfortable … rather than giving people the tools that will help them escape poverty.”
By Matt Cover

( – The government is not making much headway reducing poverty despite spending hundreds of billions of dollars, according to a study by the libertarian Cato Institute.

Despite an unprecedented increase in federal anti-poverty spending the national poverty rate has not declined, it finds.

“[S]ince President Obama took office, federal welfare spending has increased by 41 percent, more than $193 billion per year.” the study says.

Federal welfare spending this year now totals $668 billion, spread out over 126 programs, while the poverty rate that remains stubbornly high at nearly 15 percent – roughly where it was in 1965, when President Johnson declared a federal War on Poverty.
