Half way through it!

Here’s your hump day hottie Yoko Matsugane:

I lived there in Colorado Springs in the 80s when I was stationed at Fort Carson.

My heart goes out to everyone affected by this horrible fire.
May God Bless all of you and keep you safe.

Day 5 of Waldo Canyon Fire evacuation: Blaze engulfs homes/historic ranch; 32k total evacuated; more dangerous winds, heat ahead.

By Michelle Malkin

Yesterday was the most horrific day since the Waldo Canyon Fire outbreak forced thousands of us out of our homes. My family is on Day 5. As I first told you over the weekend, our neighborhood is and remains on mandatory evacuation. Thanks to a compassionate CSPD officer, we were finally able to get the kids’ parakeets out of the house (it’s standing for now). Unfortunately, one of the birds died of smoke inhalation Tuesday afternoon. The kids are crushed. But we are thankful to be alive and grateful for the extraordinary efforts of first responders, police, fire, military, non-profits, individual volunteers, private philanthropists, and corporate/civic support.


This is good news. If the NRA holds these knuckleheads’ feet to the fire in that this issue is related to the Second Amendment, then they will make this a bipartisan vote to hold AG Holder in contempt of Congress.

Here’s Hot Air’s analysis:

Pressure on House Dems as NRA to score Holder contempt vote

Allahpundit briefly mentioned this last night, but it’s worth a closer look — as it may be a bellwether of bad news to the Obama White House.  Rep. Jim Matheson (D-UT), who faces a tough challenge in November from Republican Mia Love, has announced that he will vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt tomorrow, assuming that the Obama administration can’t cut a deal before the vote in the morning.  He’s the first Democrat to break ranks, but he may not be the last:

Rep. Jim Matheson will vote to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt of Congress for withholding documents pertaining to a failed Justice Department sting that let guns get into the hands of drug runners.

Matheson, D-Utah, announced his position Tuesday, joining House Republicans, such as Utah Reps. Rob Bishop and Jason Chaffetz, who have railed against Holder’s reaction to the congressional probe into the Justice Department’s “Fast and Furious” operation. One of the lost guns was later used in the murder of U.S. Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

“It just compounds the tragedy when both sides play politics instead of releasing the facts. The Terry family, the public and Congress deserve answers,” Matheson said. “Sadly, it seems that it will take holding the attorney general in contempt to communicate that evasiveness is unacceptable.”


This has a good explanation rebutting the moron over at the WAPO in regards to unions and the Knox v. SEIU and Citizens United decisions.

Unions suck.

Overdue Backlash Against Public Employee Unions Has Liberals Freaking Out

One of the great gifts liberals benefited from before the rise of conservatism and conservative alternate media, is that so much of their policy preferences were treated as dogma. The media and many other public institutions (think schools) tended to share a similar outlook so public questions were generally “how much more” should something be done not, “should it be done at all”.

My back is acting up today.

Nothing a little percocet can’t handle.

Percocet tends to make me a little loopy at times, so I’ll refrain from saying anything stoopid by keeping things to a minimum.

I’ll try to get something out today.
