Rep. Joe Walsh (IL - Attacks Disabled Veterans For Being Attention Hogs ) is back in the news again, for saying that evil Mooslems are everywhere trying to kill us, even in our precious suburbs ! Rep. Walsh said: “One thing I’m sure of is that there are people in this country, there is a radical strain of Islam in this country, it’s not just over there, trying to kill Americans every week. It is a real threat, and it is a threat that is much more at home now than it was after 9/11."
Sounds a lot like the #7, rolling through Queens.
well thank you. it feels like something i can do - i&#039;m in a solidly blue (in fact, ex rahm, ex blago ) district. my vote almost never counts. in 2008, we braved MI for bamz. this year we&#039;re helping tammy and MAY consider IOWA. don&#039;t think i can brave MI militias in the age of baggers and birthers.
I&#039;m also pretty tired about hearing and reading that the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are the longest in our history. There&#039;s the &quot;police action&quot; in Korea that is coming up on 70 years.
And there are the wars on the First Americans. Depending on where you starts - 1620? Or, if one just concentrates on the Sioux, we could begin with the outbreak during the Civil War. I believe that was 1862.
Wounded Knee probably marks the end of the military campaign - that would be 1890.
DemonRATS and poors are people too, my friend.
Remember when there were reporters who would ask obvious questions? Good times.
We have a society change that is becoming epidemic with center-fire cartridges, compatible weapons and public displays of carnage and death. All these players want their own mass casualty incident. This needs the CDC and NIH resources and is a national emergency. It must stop.
Today the President spent $170M on farmers. It&#039;s great that a leader makes a trip to better understand the climate is becoming unfriendly. I pity the agriculture community and I lived through my own wildland urban interface fires last summer.
Take 15 percent of the funding and send it to the CDC and NIH and help me, a middle class white guy who worked public safety for over 20 years understand this. I just want it to stop.
Sorry for the zero snark.
I saw a note on the Internets that &quot;Christmas Story 2&quot; went straight to DVD.
Memo to Hollywood: Not every movie needs to be remade, updated, or sequeled.
Seems to me that the real terrists are the nutbags outside the mosques, firing in.
Personally, I think the &quot;unhinged angry folks with guns&quot; are the ones Walsh hopes to reach. He is <i>that</i> kind of asshole.
The game is afoot!
Yes, it is &quot;The Adventure of the Empty House.&quot; And I believe you are correct - the high-powered rifle (Col. Moran cocked it with a lever to charge it with the compressed air, as I recall) shot a revolver bullet.
Where&#039;s nilist when we need him?
no, i would not suggest a republican take responsibility for his or her words or actions.
would not do that.
shoulda been packing. that would have showed em.
... from the pocket of his overcoat he drew a bulky object, and he busied himself in some task which ended with a loud, sharp click, as if a spring or bolt had fallen into its place. Still kneeling upon the floor he bent forward and threw all his weight and strength upon some lever, with the result that there came a long, whirling, grinding noise, ending once more in a powerful click. He straightened himself then, and I saw that what he held in his hand was a sort of gun, with a curiously misshapen butt. He opened it at the breech, put something in, and snapped the breech-lock. ... Holmes had picked up the powerful air-gun from the floor, and was examining its mechanism.
&quot;An admirable and unique weapon,&quot; said he, &quot;noiseless and of tremendous power: I knew Von Herder, the blind German mechanic, who constructed it to the order of the late Professor Moriarty. For years I have been aware of its existence though I have never before had the opportunity of handling it. I commend it very specially to your attention, Lestrade and also the bullets which fit it.&quot;
joe walsh is just just awful. morally and politcally bankrupt, unaccomplished, bombastic, smug, hypocritical...
i will be very pleased if this tool goes down. (and am helping tammy to that end.)
He&#039;s a schmuck, too.
That one doesn&#039;t count, because shut up.
