We’re Going To Need A Bigger Popcorn Bucket

What part of this sentence does not fit with the other:

“We, the free men and women of this great nation, affirm everyone’s natural right to speak their mind but we cannot and will not abide the unjust, personal broadside your aide Jonathan Collegio leveled against a man whose family has dedicated itself to advancing the cause of liberty for over half a century…”

Thus, via TPM, we learn how, in the midst of the latest skirmish within the GOP, our friends across the aisle remain Unclear On The Concept…

Mine with extra butter, please.

Popcorn, 2008

    It occurred to me that the answer to the R’s problems is to undo the gerrymandered state districts – the ones that are so deep red that any Bozo with a R after their name can get elected. If the only republicans that get elected are ones that can succeed in semi-diverse districts, the Bozo problem takes care of itself overnight. Sure, you’d have a few less Republicans in office overall, but they’d all be able to talk in public.

    These nutso rep.s are the equivalent of rare orchids that can only survive in an artificial hot house. This problem is going to be solved by taking down the greenhouses, not by trying to convince folks to only grow daisies in them.

    One of those unintended consequences thingies…

    I see a wisp of something in my crystal ball, something along the lines of Obama sweet-talking Rubio into helping out with immigration reform efforts, maybe giving him a prominent platform for contributing to the drafting of new policies, engaging him to the extent that when reform is passed, Rubio is so delighted with the success of the effort and all the congratulatory phone calls his office is getting from happy Hispanic constituents that he gives the Prez a big ol’ hug as the cameras roll…

    Now, my crystal ball can be plenty goofy sometimes. But then again, so can the Republicans.

    Do you know why we are unsuccessful in asymmetrical and guerrilla warfare in CENTCOM theatre of operations? I’ll tell you. It’s not the inefficiency of our combatant commanders, planning, readiness or training of troops. Much like the Vietnam war, ACM, AAF, foreign fighters, Jihadist, and JAM have nothing to lose. They embrace death as it is a way of life. I simply don’t fear it. I am the walking exigent circumstance you created.

    The Violence of action will be HIGH. I am the reason TAC alert was established. I will bring unconventional and asymmetrical warfare to those in LAPD uniform whether on or off duty. ISR is my strength and your weakness. You will now live the life of the prey. Your RD’s and homes away from work will be my AO and battle space. I will utilize every tool within INT collections that I learned from NMITC in Dam Neck. You have misjudged a sleeping giant. There is no conventional threat assessment for me. JAM, New Ba’ath party, 1920 rev BGE, ACM, AAF, AQAP, AQIM and AQIZ have nothing on me. Do not deploy airships or gunships. SA-7 Manpads will be waiting.

    They finally got to the bottom of the mystery money source of last fall’s no-on-Prop-30 campaign in California–engineers who want to privatize all state engineering. They sure went through a lot of hoops to hide their role and intentions.

    Corporations are people, my friends.

    A group that backs privatizing public infrastructure engineering work gave $400,000 to an opaque, out-of-state organization that injected millions of dollars – and plenty of controversy – into California’s initiative campaigns last year.

    New state campaign filings show that the American Council of Engineering Companies California made a $150,000 donation to a Virginia-based nonprofit in July and another $250,000 in September.

    That nonprofit, Americans for Job Security, in turn, gave money to another nonprofit organization based in Arizona, which then contributed $11 million to a California committee that opposed Gov. Jerry Brown’s Proposition 30 tax hike and supported Proposition 32, which sought to end payroll- deducted political contributions.

    The engineering business group’s donation surfaced Friday because California law requires political action committees to show their spending, including money that goes to issue-advocacy groups.

    The divisive language of the right would be more like “usurper” or “Communist” or “pervert” or “traitor” or really any number of completely delusional accusations. The mild, and completely subjective, epithet “hater” is something a non-deranged person — like those on the left — might choose.

    @GxB: Rubio is no Connery or even Patrick Stewart for that matter. While there are some exceptions, receding hairline does not a dreamboat make.

    Would be nice if our local law enforcement knew that this was SOP for the folks that deliver the paper so they don’t wake everyone up shining their headlights in bedroom windows, though, and went the extra step to at least get a look at the driver. What a colossal fuckup.

    Hope this ends soon. It reminds me a bit of 2002 around here.

    @Hob:

    That’s someone who’s lost all awareness of how human beings talk to each other and how they’re likely to respond to being shot at.

    Like I said farther up, he sounds like my schizophrenic former-neighbor. I was just trying to refute the assertion that all criminals like this are crazy. They aren’t necessarily. Doesn’t really matter in this case – he’s dangerous and has guns.

    Now reporting he may be in Big Bear. They’re just grasping at straws here.

    Apparently the truck, or the same model truck, was found in flames. This is like a runaway “24” episode. Does he have a hovercraft hidden in the woods?

    @The Moar You Know:

    A problem is that they let current and retired LE buy any kind of weapon they can afford in this country. Class 3, full-auto, “destructive device”, you name it, they can get it legally. We might want to change that in light of what’s going on here today.

    He was terminated in 2008, but his wallet and BADGE were found in Riverside(?)

    No one on the news has asked a single question about the badge.

    How can any person or group fashion that sentence without having heads explode all around?

    Not that I’m jumping to defend the subject, Bozo’ell – or perhaps Collegio, whoever he is….

    The long recitation of Bozell’s family members reveals that the writers are really into aristocracy, and hate democracy and America.

    hair is a necessary, but not a sufficient condition.

    @trollhattan: hovercraft? That’s more “Neuromancer”….which would be cool. Except nothing about this situation is cool.
