Spotted this “Who is John Galt?” stencil in my neighborhood.  It’s the first time I’ve ever seen any street art around here referencing Ayn Rand or Atlas Shrugged.

    The GOP is nothing if not predictable.

    The GOP’s winter meeting has re-elected Rence Priebus as party chair for the next 2 years. What might surprise you is that he ran unopposed. (Maine’s Republican National Committeeman, Mark Willis, could not collect enough support to launch a formal challenge.)

    “The task before us now is charting our party’s future. We have an opportunity and responsibility to shape the GOP of the next generation,” Priebus said in a speech to RNC committee members following his re-election.”We must compete in every state and every region, building relationships with communities we haven’t before. At the RNC we are dropping ‘red’ and ‘blue’ analysis. We must be a party concerned about every American in every neighborhood. We must develop the best technology with the help of the best minds — and train activists, volunteers and candidates with the modern tools of a modern party.”

    This is a novel defense:

    Muslim abuser who ‘didn’t know’ that sex with a girl of 13 was illegal is spared jail

    A muslim who raped a 13-year-old girl he groomed on Facebook has been spared a prison sentence after a judge heard he went to an Islamic faith school where he was taught that women are worthless.

    Adil Rashid, 18, claimed he was not aware that it was illegal for him to have sex with the girl because his education left him ignorant of British law.

    Yesterday Judge Michael Stokes handed Rashid a suspended sentence, saying: ‘Although chronologically 18, it is quite clear from the reports that you are very naive and immature when it comes to sexual matters.’

    Earlier Nottingham Crown Court heard that such crimes usually result in a four to seven-year prison sentence.

    But the judge said that because Rashid was ‘passive’ and ‘lacking assertiveness’, sending him to jail might cause him ‘more damage than good’.

    DHS Wants AR-15s For Their Quality As “Personal Defense Weapons”, But You Shouldn’t Have Them

    The Department of Homeland Security is the latest to find Governor Cuomo’s anti-Second Amendment agenda is at odds with reality. A report by Steve McGough of RadioViceOnline.com cites a General Service Administration (GSA) request for proposal (RFP) on behalf of the Department of Homeland Security and member components such as Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) seeking over 7,000 AR-15’s and matching 30 round clips.

    The RFP describes these weapons as “personal defense weapons” and states they are “suitable for personal defense use in close quarters.” Governor Cuomo in his recently passed “SAFE Act” has banned these very same modern sporting rifles and clips the federal government finds to be “personal defense weapons.”

    This federal government rebuke of Cuomo comes just hours after news broke that two students from Rochester lives were evidently saved by an AR-15 as armed intruders entered their home. The very same personal defense weapon Cuomo plans to take out of law abiding gun owners hands protected two of New York’s best and brightest.

    Obama To Cut Healthcare Benefits For Active Duty And Retired Military

    The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.

    The disparity in treatment between civilian and uniformed personnel is causing a backlash within the military that could undermine recruitment and retention.

    The proposed increases in health care payments by service members, which must be approved by Congress, are part of the Pentagon’s $487 billion cut in spending. It seeks to save $1.8 billion from the Tricare medical system in the fiscal 2013 budget, and $12.9 billion by 2017.

    Kammler is part of the back story to that!

    He was a civil engineering genius but a real evil bastard. He designed the crematoria and gas chambers for the death camps, and also the Mittlewerke, the underground factory where the V-2 rockets were built. After the SS took over the rocket projects from the Wehrmacht and the jet fighter projects from the Luftwaffe in 1944 on Hitler and Himmler’s orders Kammler was put in charge of all the infrastructure relating to the Wünderwaffe. His final end remains one of the most intriguing mysteries of WWII and the source of much speculation and conspiracy theories.

    Apple needs to lead the way by manufacturing its products in the US.. Apple’s coming under increasing scrutiny and they’re looking more in disarray than they have been in years; the hole left by Jobs’ death is becoming very evident.

    Read this. It seems interesting.

    http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2013/01/28/gun-laws-and-the-fools-of-chelm-by-david-mamet.html

    It probably covers a lot of the same stuff on a different decade (yeah I know – not an accurate de-abbreviation).

    However the guy writes for a living and not political stuff either (although lately he seems to be doing it more).

    Anyway take care. I think I know how you feel, but this is the internet so I am not even sure you is you (if you get my drift).
