More TSA Three Ring Dog & Pony Show

The TSA who by the way could not find a terrorist if he was locked in a barn with Janet Nepalitano herself has  now decided they are going to SWAB your palms before you board a flight.

From CNN:

Washington (CNN) — To the list of instructions you hear at airport checkpoints, add this: “Put your palms forward, please.”

The Transportation Security Administration soon will begin randomly swabbing passengers’ hands at checkpoints and airport gates to test them for traces of explosives.

Previously, screeners swabbed some carry-on luggage and other objects as they searched for the needle in the security haystack — components of terrorist bombs in an endless stream of luggage.

But after the Christmas Day attempted bombing of Northwest Flight 253 over Detroit, Michigan, the TSA began a program of swabbing passengers’ hands, which could be contaminated by explosive materials, experts say. The TSA will greatly expand the swabbing in the coming weeks, the agency said.

“The point is to make sure that the air environment is a safe environment,” Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told CNN. “We know that al Qaeda [and other] terrorists continue to think of aviation as a way to attack the United States. One way we keep it safe is by new technology [and] random use of different types of technology.”

If a Muslim terrorist were to think this through, they would simply have someone else make the bomb and help the Seeker of Muhammad’s 72 Virgins put the bomb on, thus not allowing him to touch the bomb…So unless the Jihadi wannabe cannot keep his hands off his schlong, there will be no residue on his hands…..DUHHHHHHHHHH!

Now if these dumb fucks of the TSA want to Swab my Schlong, I’d be more then happy to whip Stanley the Power Tool out and allow them to test it for explosives or anything else they wish to test for, and while they’re at it, they can Swab my asshole too!

Personally, I think we should give every passenger on a plane a baseball bat, that way if 4 terrorist want to take on an entire plane, the passengers can beat the living shit out of the goat fucking asshole and send him on a one way magic carpet ride to his cartoon like prophet Muhammad and the 72 virgin sheep.

Empty Headed Empty Suit Speaks About Anti-Terrorism

Was the Chairman’s teleprompter there to tell him what to say?Obama Is A Wuss

President Barack Obama speaks to employees at the National Counterterrorism Centre yesterday. Later he spoke to members of Congress about strategy in Afghanistan

Sunday night thoughts

Had a funeral this week.  I saw a lot of friends, you know how it is, the older you get, the more people you know, and a lot of them you see only at weddings and funerals.   One particular guy I spoke to is now retired from a federal law enforcement agency.   He prefers not to be named or have his agency identified.   The last time we talked shop was in late 2000.    He had been working on a high-profile case which had resulted in the perp going to prison for life.   At that get-together in 2000,   I asked him what big thing he was working on now that the **** case was finished.    He replied, “Terrorism.”   At the time I thought,  “Big yawn.”

Well, last week, we spoke again.  I reminded him of our conversation concerning terrorism.  He has since retired, but keeps in touch with his buddies.   I asked him what he would do if he were head of the agency he retired from.    His answer was to the point:  stop immigration into this country.  We have to sort the good guys from the bad guys.  Also, our schools are so vulnerable.   He pointed out that the tragedy in Russia back in 2004 could happen anywhere.   Who is going to stop an attack like that, the receptionist? There was more, but for now, this is all I am prepared to write until I run it by the Head Rogue Jew.

The stock market…as you may or may not know, I am a daytrader.  I don’t care if the market goes up or down, I go long or short, makes no difference to me.  I don’t fall in love with stocks, I just sniff out opportunities like a boar sniffs out truffles.

On Friday, I was long a lot of gold and energy stocks.    I had a profitable  week, considering the funeral and other problems that popped up.   Now,  the market is extremely oversold, which means we should be getting a bear-market rally, a dead-cat bounce (that’s what it is called, I didn’t make it up).   But I got this sick feeling in the pit of my stomach, as if subconsciously my brain was telling me ‘Danger Ahead.’   So I liquidated everything and went to cash, and shorted the market.   An hour later, a friend of mine phoned and said, “You know, I just wasn’t comfortable with the market action, I went to cash.”   So his subconscious agrees with mine.    Now watch the market get that short-seller covering rally and go up 500 points tomorrow and make me look like a monkey.

What’s this have to do with liberalism?    We are headed for big trouble.  Three more US banks have failed since the beginning of the year.    Stimulus package?   Uh, hellooo, throwing money at a problem will work only until the problem goes through that money and comes back for more.   Every morning, when the clock radio goes on, one hears about 3,000 or 30,000 more layoffs.   The people who worked at Circuit City last month won’t buy coffee at Starbucks tomorrow morning or eat dinner at Red Lobster tomorrow night.  It’s like the domino effect.    I heard a politician say we have to live within out means.  Whaddya  mean WE ???  Hello again,  YOU POLITICIANS need to live within your means.   Make me president, I’ll cut the federal budget by 80%.  The government and all its freaking social engineering spending is the problem.   Massive federal debt to finance all these social engineering debacles in the problem.

The housing situation is beyond words.  I took a ride with a friend who is a real estate agent.   We stopped at a house in a small development in Florida.  He said that the house was in foreclosure, they were asking 239,000 for it, and would be truly lucky to get 150,000.  He pulled up at another house, got out and righted a couple of flower pots that were lying on their sides.   “Another empty,” he said. “If someone was living there, those pots wouldn’t be lying there.”   We drove up the street and counted seven houses that showed subtle and not-so-subtle signs of abandonment.

I met another fellow at the funeral luncheon.   He just bought a condo near the beach outside of Clearwater.  At the top of the market, this particular condo was going for $299,000.   They were asking $199,000.   The woman said she would take $100,000.  He offered her $60,000 and she took it.

Another condo owner south of Clearwater told me at the same funeral they live in a 16 unit development.   The HOA (homeowners’ association) fee is $700 a month.   Two of the units are in foreclosure, several others have stopped paying the HOA fee, and they are all dragging each other to court.

My friend N. the realtor said he went to a foreclosure auction, and many of the properties, including houses, had high monthly HOA fees.    One house, which sold originally for $725,000, had a starting bid of $199,000 and an association fee of $708.   N. told me there was no way he was going to bid on a house with a monthly association fee of $708.   What if you can’t turn the house for 4 or 5 years?   That’s $708 a month and that doesn’t include mortgage, insurance or property taxes.   Everyone I know is wondering if he or she will have a job next year.   They aren’t looking to buy a house with a $700 HOA fee.  WE IS SCREWED.  People are living in neighborhoods where half the houses are unoccupied.   Now that sure does a lot for your resale value.

Video: Citizen Soldier by 3 Doors Down

Citizen/Soldier” is a single by the American alternative rock band 3 Doors Down. The song was released as a single in November 2007 in conjunction with a recruitment campaign by the United States National Guard. The lyrics convey the band’s views regarding the actions performed by the Guard.

A music video (directed by Antoine Fuqua) released to movie theaters, the National Guard website, and other outlets portrays the history of the Guard and employs current members of the Guard as actors.

G-d Bless the men in women who put their lives on the line so that we can be free.  Remember to think about them this Thanksgiving Day and if you see a Soldier, Sailor, Airman, or Marine be sure to thank them for their service to this nation.

This Is Not Good: Iran Converts Foreign Currency To Gold

 

I'm With Stupid

Something is telling me that Iranian President Ahamdinejad maybe planning to exploit our “peaceful” transition of power and most likely the weakness of Dear Leader Elect Obama.

From The Astute Blogger:

Iranian newspapers are quoting a top adviser to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as saying the country has converted some of its foreign currency reserves into gold.

The papers published Saturday did not say how much of Iran’s estimated $120 billion in reserves were converted into gold. Iranian officials could not immediately be reached for comment.

The daily Jahan-e-Eghtesad, or Economy World, quoted presidential adviser Mojtaba Hashemi Samareh as saying Ahmadinejad ordered the change.

The decision comes after a dramatic fall in oil prices recently triggered by a global financial crisis. About 80 percent of Iran’s foreign currency revenue comes from oil exports.

This could be seen as sign of a imminent attack against the West.  Either way, I trust Ahmadinejad and Obama about as far as I can throw Oprah in her fat years.   Granted this is just speculation, it may not be an act of aggresion by Iran, it may simply be the bottom falling out on the dollar, but we must not let anything get by us where Iran is concerned. 

Buyers Remorse: Terrorist Bill Ayers Status With Obama Changes From Guy In Da Hood To Close Family Friend

It had to happen sooner or later.  It’s like going on Ebay and finding a shiny new Benz for $1 and when the car arrives you find out its not in fact a shiny new Benz, but instead it’s a rusted old Ford Pinto.  

Well, the Domestic Terrorist that Dear Leader Elect Barack Hussein Obama told us was nothing more then a guy in the same neighborhood declared on national tv that he and O-Bomb-Us are in fact close personal friends and always have been.

From Michelle Malkin:

Didn’t sleep much last night, so I was already feeling queasy when I tuned in to watch a bit of the Good Morning America interview with Barack Obama’s good family friend, Bill Ayers. Now, I’m really feeling sick in my stomach. The interviewer actually did an adequate job of trying to press Ayers on his terrorist past. But in the end, he acquiesced and let Ayers have the last, morally equivalent word. (Allah’s got the vid clips and more deconstruction.)

Ayers refused to say that the violent crimes of the Weather Underground were wrong. He talked about domestic terrorism as if it were akin to toilet-papering a neighbor’s tree. He magnanimously acknowledged that the Pentagon bombings “crossed lines of propriety, legality, and perhaps common sense.” Perhaps?

Confronted with the Prairie Fire manifesto’s dedication to Sirhan Sirhan, he waved it off with a quick “I reject that.” Asked about his 9/11 quote in the NYTimes lamenting that his terrorist outfit “should have done more,” Ayers whinnied that the quote was taken out of the context of the number of people killed in Vietnam.

Huh?

I can’t wait to see what else comes crawling out from under the same rock that Obama slithered from.

Americans were promised a Savior, a Messiah.  They were sold this whole package of a man who was going to change the world, part the seas, fill your pockets with other peoples money, and they bought into it.  Hook, Line and sinker. Now that the election is over, and with the short attention span of Americans, all of this will long be forgotten by the time 2012 rolls around, but by then I would hope and pray that Americans realize that their pockets are empty and the promise of bags of gold turned out to be nothing more then a load of shit that maybe, just maybe they’ll think to themselves…..”What the f*ck were we thinking?”

The Obamessiah Wants You To Support T.W.A.T

The Office of The President Elect Barack Hussein Obama is calling on all Americans to rally their support behind him and his renewed efforts in The War Against Terror, or T.W.A.T for short!

The Obamessiah Wants You To Support T.W.A.T

The Obamessiah Wants You To Support T.W.A.T

In an effort to distance itself from the previous administrations aggressive war to protect Americans and to more accurately reflect the incoming administrations stance against Global Islamic Terrorism and how President Elect Barack Hussein Obama will be more likely to use the Armed Forces against American Citizens then against Islamic Terrorists in foreign lands.  

This new Federal Department will be entrusted to close friend and mentor to President Elect Obama, Homeland Security Chief, William Ayers and he will be assisted by fellow T.W.A.T‘s Keith Olberman and the man who likes Hard Balls, Chris Matthews both of MSNBC.

William Ayers will also oversee the redevelopment of the TSA (Transportation Security Administration) into the new bigger government version called the Federal Aviation Transportation Airline Security Screening or F.A.T.A.S.S for short.

The President Elect is calling on each and every one of you for Grassroot support of this new and oversized endeavor that will cost billions and billions of dollars in the form of CHANGE from your pockets.

So climb aboard President Elect Obama’s T.W.A.T.  With racism behind us in this new age, it’s not a mind that a terrible thing to waste, but a T.W.A.T, just ask Michelle Obama, she’ll tell you just how proud she is of America and that she is behind T.W.A.T all the way!
