Update?

So I was all upset with Obama because he wouldn't allow some Korean Garands into the country because terrorists and gang-bangers are all clamoring for 10lb, 3 1/3 feet long, 8 round clip capacity battle rifles.
Because they're so easy to get through the gun show loophole or something.
So here's an update.
I think.
I don't know the blogger and he(?) quotes an anonymous person from ODCMP.
For what it's worth, he says that the Korean Garands are actually owned by the US already, they were given under a lend/lease sort of deal.
So they need to return them to the US who would then sell them to CMP to get some more Garands into the country.
Which I'm pretty sure won't happen until after the current admin is not in charge, so I hope Korea can hang onto them for another couple years.
No Garand should ever be destroyed.
Besides, Korea might need them if the poofy haired maniac's successor needs a war to cement his claim.

It sounds plausible, that's why I'm passing it on. I just hate being Shep Smith and passing on every unsourced thing I see.
If it's wrong, blame Say Uncle .

Blago guilty of lying to the feds

All other counts were deemed mistrialey.  I'm sure there's some correct way to put that, but I don't know it.

I'll update this with a link as soon as I find one.  Everyone's got it on their front page but no one has posted an actual news item yet.

Update: Link.  Anyone care to speculate why the jurors asked for a copy of their oath?

When you gallivant around like Marie Fucking Antoinette, the peasants revolt

If the Obamas have the money to take trips like this, maybe they're not paying enough in taxes.

Now this really pisses me off.

South Korea hasa crapload of Garands they want to sell to Americans but Obama won't let them. No, Obama isn't named, but he's in charge of the US Gov't.
The story says, "Hundreds of thousands" early on but then they say 86,000 Garands and 22,000 carbines so that's only about 100,000, as we all know, journalists are all stupid and/or ignorant, so I'm going with bad math, but that's still enough for me to get one of each.
Bastids. Mudder pocking sonsomabatching icehole bastids.
Via Say Uncle, who's not nearly as pissed off as I am.

Can we have a President who acts like a President? Pretty please?

I suppose we shouldn't be surprised that Obama is defending the building of a mosque near Ground Zero

As I'm sure some of our three readers have noticed, I'm a believer in separating the terrorist acts of Islamofascism from the religion of Islam.  I think blaming all Islams for 9/11 is not that different from blaming all Catholics for the pedophilia scandals in the Catholic Church, or blaming all Christians for the bombing of abortion clinics.  Granted, Muslims have been slower to speak out against violence done in the name of their religion, but it's happening more and more and I believe that movement will continue to grow if it's received with welcome from non-Muslims. 

That said, I think the idea of a mosque so close to the site of an act of terror committed in the name of Islam is a horrible idea.  The builders are well aware that this is repugnant to the majority of New Yorkers and especially to people who lost loved ones or survived 9/11.  Continuing to build a mosque at this location in light of the opposition to it demonstrates that it is meant as a direct affront.

And of course, Obama has to stick his nose in local matters again, giving an opinion on something he has no right or reason to be concerned with in an offiicial fashion.  His support of the mosque is not coming in an offhand remark to a friend, it was expressed at a podium in prepared remarks at an official state function.  This is even more of a gaffe than the "the Cambridge police acted stupidly" comment a year ago, as he's purposely weighing in on something he has no business sticking his nose in and once again, he's on the wrong side.  Obama claims this is a freedom of religion issue, but I don't recall hearing Obama weighing in on the side of Catholics when we oppose tax dollars paying for abortions - he says one thing and then does whatever the hell he wants.  I understand that Obama wants to be a hip and unconventional president, and if that's how he wishes to be viewed that's fine and dandy, but there's a difference between being the president who doesn't want to give up his Blackberry because he's the hip, tech savvy Commander in Chief and a president who doesn't recognize the boundaries of his job and uses his podium to express official opinions on happenings the Office of the President has no legal standing to weigh in on.

I am so hopeful that the GOP can get its act together enough to present a strong presidential candidate in 2012.  I previously thought that Obama would be a one-term president because he has a lack of stick-to-itiveness and would be thinking that he could just move on to run the UN, but he's been given such an easy ride that he'll continue in office.  It's up to Republicans to lose the 2012 race; unfortunately, we're really good at snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

Wait, you mean bowing down before you doesn't make you respect me?

Alternatively: Lessons I learned from my first girlfriend.
Quote
in 2009, only 29% of those polled said that Iran's acquisition of nuclear weapons would be "positive" for the Middle East; in 2010, 57% of those polled indicate that such an outcome would be "positive" for the Middle East.

So kissing people's asses doesn't make them respect you. You'd think Obama would know that, considering his contempt for Minitru.

Via The Belmont Club who links to a bunch of places showing this trend, including this gem from the Asia times
When respondents were asked to name the world leader they admired most, Obama’s standing was less than 1%. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan was cited most often (20%), followed by last year’s top pick, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez (13%), and Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad (12%).


RTWT, it's pretty funny.
You know, in an endy way.
