VFW head to propose dissolving the VFW PAC

He asked the PAC to rescind their endorsements, they refused, so he's now going to move to dissolve the PAC entirely during the next VFW convention.

Correct and stupid are not mutually exclusive positions

Some background: Okay, you may have heard that here in California, we have a ballot proposition (Prop. 19) that would essentially make it legal for adults to possess a certain quantity of marijuana (I believe it's an ounce) for personal use. (More on my personal views on that later.)

The DOJ released a memo on Thursday, wherein Eric Holder stated,

"We will vigorously enforce the (federal law) against those individuals and organizations that possess, manufacture or distribute marijuana for recreational use, even if such activities are permitted under state law."

Okay, since it's really, really long, the rest is below the fold...

Awwwwww...

...don't you just feel terribly awful for the poor little chilly fella fucking terrorist traitor scumbag piece of shit motherfucker?

About 20 minutes into the hearing, a blanket was draped over his shoulders. Hasan was paralyzed from the upper chest down when he was wounded four times by police who rushed to the scene of the shooting. Defense attorneys say he has trouble regulating his body temperature because of his injures. He usually wears a watch cap and long underwear.
Well, I doubt he's gonna need either of those pieces of clothing where he's eventually headed.

Wisconsin Politics Update

Just thought I'd weigh in on the current political climate in Wisconsin. 


I know its political season when my wife starts complaining about all the commercials, "When is this shit over?"  All parties are buying outrageous allotments of air time on pretty much every local television provider and both the Senate (Feingold/Johnson) and Governor's (Punched-in-the-face/Walker) have gone pretty much entirely negative.  The plus side on that is that the majority of the Republican entries are dealing with falsehoods in their opponent's ads instead of direct attacks.

I finally saw the end-zone celebration ad from Feingold and its a snoozer.  In case you out-of-staters were wondering, he's done.  This race is over.  Feingold is spending more time talking about NAFTA/GAFTA than any current political issue.  

I believe the Walker/Barrett race is closer and the usual lefty organizations have pulled out all the stops (read:  are lying) to beat the favorite.  Recently, Planned Parenthood et. al. have been going on about how he'll ban abortion and a recent campaign commercial stated that Walker would "ban all stem-cell research" with the obligatory paraplegic woman weeping about a cure.   

I still think he's going to win (he's up by about 6 pts on average right now) but that one will be closer than it probably should be.  

In my district, the 4th Wisconsin Congressional, the Democrat is running unopposed and with good reason, it is a D +22 district according to Cook PVI.  Looks like I'll have to run myself if we want to get a change in that office.

Anyway, overall the outlook is quite good in Wisconsin and this very purple state seems to be trending toward red.

The wrong lesson

I'm sorry, but this smacks of utter P.C. bullshit:

[Rutgers University President Richard] McCormick's Friday letter said that "This tragedy and the events surrounding it have raised critical questions about the climate of our campuses. Students, parents, and alumni have expressed deep concern that our university, which prides itself on its rich diversity, is not fully welcoming and accepting of all students."
In case you've been hiding under a rock for the last week or so, this has to do with a couple of creeps broadcasting a Rutgers freshman named Tyler Clementi having sex online via a hidden camera, after which Clementi committed suicide by jumping off of a bridge.

This is both a tragedy and an outrage.

But what this is not is some sort of indictment of the "climate" at Rutgers. It's about Dharun Ravi and Molly Wei, the amoral assholes who decided that it would be funny to invade someone's privacy in a stupid and cruel way.

This isn't something where university officials need to sit down with a certain group of people and talk about diversity. This is something where they should be talking to ALL of their students about obeying the law and acting within the bounds of common decency.

This shouldn't be viewed through the prism of sexual orientation. Or race. Or class. Or gender. Or religion. Or any other label. The fact of the matter is that an individual was robbed of his dignity by a couple of repulsive fucking assholes who belong in jail and who will hopefully carry their victim's death on their consciences forever.

Oh, and when Ravi and Wei hopefully get the book thrown at them, I hope it's a "teachable moment" about legal and decent conduct more than "diversity."
