Crow Study

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

This "Study" was done with your tax dollars and education funds.

They found about 200 dead crows near Topeka, KS.
and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu.

They had a Bird Pathologist examine the remains of all the crows,
& he confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu, to everyone's relief.

However, he determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks,
& only 2% were killed by an impact with a car.

Kansas then hired an Ornithological Behaviourist to determine
the disproportionate percentages for truck versus car kill.

The Ornithological Behaviourist determined the cause in short order.

When crows eat road kill, they always set-up a look-out Crow
in a nearby tree to warn of impending danger.

His conclusion was that all the lookout crows could say "Cah",
but none could say "Truck."

We Are Being Fed Baloney

Saturday, February 23, 2013

A Colorado lawmaker’s foot-in-mouth comment about having woman go to a callbox “if you feel like you’re gonna be raped” while arguing for more gun limits has created a firestorm of reaction, and it doesn’t appear to be going away even with help from his fellow Democrats who are supporting Rep. Joe Salazar, D-Thornton.

It was during debate over a Colorado proposal to ban those who legally are allowed to carry a concealed weapon in the state from having that weapon on university campuses Salazar said, “It’s why we have call boxes, it’s why we have safe zones, it’s why we have the whistles. Because you just don’t know who you’re gonna be shooting at.”

www.dailyfitnesscenter.comThen he continued, “And you don’t know if you feel like you’re gonna be raped, or if you feel like someone’s been following you around or if you feel like you’re in trouble when you may actually not be, that you pop out that gun and you pop … pop a round at somebody.”

The Denver Post reported Rep. Lori Saine, R-Dacono, who’s been on the opposite side of the gun debate from Salazar, said, “I guess, Rep. Salazar, if a woman doesn’t know she’s being raped, she doesn’t fear it.”

Online, it was Jacob Dawson of OneNewsNow’s Instant Analysis, who said, “While Colorado is debating gun control, against the will of their citizens, one of their politicians is wanting to arm their women with WHISTLES!”

The commentary continued, “File this under the heading of most absurd statements by a politician, Rep. Joe Salazar wants women to blow a whistle while being raped instead of letting them arm themselves with a gun. This has apparently been suggested by a Colorado university. Very, very sad.”

Salazar followed shortly with a written apology, trying to work through the controversy.

“We were having a public policy debate on whether or not guns makes (sic) people safer on campus. I don’t believe they do,” he said. “That was the point I was trying to make.”

Other Democrats have rallied in defense of Salazar’s Bidenism, with House Speaker Mark Ferrandino, D-Denver, telling the Post that Salazar is a “great legislator and a person who has worked hard in support of women.”

However, Salazar’s critics from the minority GOP ranks in the statehouse pointed out that Democrats were certainly unforgiving when Rep. Todd Akin, a candidate for the U.S. Senate in Missouri during the 2012 election, make an erroneous reference to “legitimate rape.”

Akin also apologized for his misstatement, but continued to be the target of Democrat attacks anyway.

Akin eventually lost his race to incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill. His campaign was rocked by criticism after he used the phrase “legitimate rape” as an awkward synonym for forcible rape – from both Democrats and inside-the-Beltway GOPers.

He apologized repeatedly for the mistake, as well as for mentioning a controversial medical theory regarding rape and conception.

Yet many of those who are staunchly secure in conservatism supported Akin. Dr. James Dobson, founder and president of Family Talk, which produces his regular radio program, said, “I regret to say that Congressman Akin has been subjected to disgraceful treatment at the hands of the GOP political bosses. They have withheld funds for his campaign, even though he won the GOP primary for the Senate seat. Karl Rove and Haley Barbour have said things about this character that are untrue.”

Also, Sen. Jim DeMint, R-S.C., said people needed to consider the race and its results.

“We must defeat Sen. Claire McCaskill … Her support of President Obama’s job-killing, big-spending policies are sending our country into an economic abyss.”

At Colorado Peak Politics.com, a blog, the authors said, “Calling the rape police (we mean all you reporters, liberal bloggers, and reporter/liberal bloggers who fixated on Ken Buck, Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock for the last, oh, 3 or so years: time to ask every Democrat you can think of, starting with Governor John Hickenlooper all the way down to the elected Democrat dog catcher in Buena Vista, whether or not they condemn the insensitive comments about rape made by the eloquent one, Rep. Joe Salazar.”

Continued the criticism, “Does Joe Salazar think women are so stupid they might be confused about whether or not they are about to be raped. Time to add a new term to the American political lexicon: confused rape. (Confused rape: the act of thinking you are about to be raped when in fact you are not.)

Many in the mainstream media simply ignored Salazar’s comments about rape and women.

One report that did appear, from Philly.com, updated the issue with words of advice from the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs.

There, the school’s Department of Public Safety suggested that women “tell your attacker that you have a disease or are menstruating” to fend off an assault.

They also should be aware “vomiting or urinating may also convince the attacker to leave you alone,” the school said.

WND yesterday reported on the package of gun limits that Colorado Democrats are passing. It moved into the headlines when Vice President Joe Biden began pressuring Colorado lawmakers to adopt the drastic measures – even in opposition to their constituents – so that Obama would have model legislation to push in other states.

The bills introduced are:

HB 1224, which would bans all magazines that hold more than 15 rounds.
HB 1226 would prohibit those with concealed carry permits, including off duty police officers and former military personnel, from bringing their weapons on college campuses.
HB 1228 would force residents to pay for exercising a constitutional right by making them pay for a background check to prove they are not criminals. There is no limit on the amount the Colorado Bureau of Investigation could charge for the background check.
HB 1229 bans the private sale and transfer of firearms and institutes universal background checks and/gun registration for all Colorado gun owners.
All the bills are moving forward through the legislative process.

When a handful of Democrats from rural areas planned to oppose the bills, Biden started making calls.

“What he essentially did was tell these Democrats to fall on their swords in order to pass the president’s agenda, which is ultimately about gun confiscation,” said Rep. Lori Saine, R-Dacono. “What they need to realize is that these promises are almost never kept, and come next year, they will be left to face angry voters on their own.”

“He (Biden) said it would send a strong message to the rest of the country that a western state had passed gun-control bills,” Tony Exhum, a Democratic lawmaker from Colorado Springs, told the Post.

Salazar’s statement isn’t even the first wild one to come from the Colorado chambers that have made headlines this year.

During debate on a civil union bill, since homosexual marriage is banned in the state Constitution, Democrats removed an exemption from the bill that would have given conscience protections to Christian business owners.

Senate Majority Leader Pat Steadman, a homosexual, publicly told Christians who regard homosexuality as a sin, based on the Bible, to “get thee to a nunnery” and remove themselves from society.

What do you think is the best way for a woman to protect herself from rape?

Blow a whistle
Take a self-defense class so she can fight back
Say she has a scorching sexually transmitted disease
Carry pepper spray or mace
Carry a knife
Carry a personal alarm
Carry a baseball bat, crowbar, lead pipe or 9 iron in potentially dangerous situations
Bite a would-be rapist
Scratch, kick and jab an attacker's weak spots, like eyes, nose and genitals
Bring a dog with her
Don't travel or go out at night alone. Always bring a trusted friend or partner
Stab an attacker in the eye with her high heels
Interlace car keys between her fingers, so she can jab an attacker's eyes
Tell an attacker she's pregnant to evoke sympathy or remorse
Scream and draw attention. Shout, "Call the police, I am being raped!"
Call 9-1-1 and run like heck
Carry a Taser or stun-gun
A 2 inch barrel .38
A .45 pistol
An AR-15 semi-automatic rifle
A shotgun (how can you carry it as a concealed weapon?????????

This is absolutely outrageous and demeaning to women of all ages.

"Uncle Joe" says to shoot a shotgun in the air. The idiot just told us to do something as self protection that is against FEDERAL LAW. What a moron. Not to mention us trying to get a license for brandying around a shotgun?????

Maybe we should ask our rapist to please wait until we get home and get the shotgun and shoot it into the air??

I can think of very few things that can happen to a woman of any age that would be more devastating than to be raped. It is so horrible that I can't even bring myself to wish it on these fools who are suggesting the above.

Americans, ARISE, and FIGHT THIS THINKING!! It is a political ploy to get us to give up our 2nd Amendment rights.

The government is busy buying up billions of rounds of ammunition so we can't get it. That way only the Jack Boots (read your German history of pre-World War II) will have them. Then they can come into our homes and do whatever they wish to us.

Some may think this hysterical thinking. Are you familiar with the phrase "History repeats itself"? Don't doubt for a moment that this can happen to our beloved country.

Our so-called "leaders" are bound and determined to take our freedom away though the use of hysteria and threats. They are lying through their teeth to us about the Sequester.

We will still have our police, firefighters, teachers and first responders , no matter if the Sequester goes through or not. That is because these folks are STATE employees, NOT Federalies!

The same with the gas prices. I firmly believe, and the more I research it, the more true it is, that the rises in gas prices have absolutely NOTHING TO DO with Hurrican Sandy OR the renovations of the gas reservoirs. It is a TAX INCREASE, hidden behind a thin veil of lies and deceit.

Obama got one tax increase, and is now hell bent on getting more and more out of us, no matter what our soci0-economic status is.

I, for one, am preparing for another American Revolution. I wish it didn't have to be this way, but seems the only method available to us to get our country back into the hands of the people.

One more reason to vote all of them out of office.

State Senator R.C. Soles (D - NC)
Long time Anti-Gun Advocate State Senator R.C. Soles, 74, shot one of two intruders at his home just outside Tabor City , N.C. about 5 p.m. Sunday, the prosecutor for the politician's home county said.
The intruder, Kyle Blackburn, was taken to a South Carolina hospital, but the injuries were not reported to be life-threatening, according to Rex Gore, district attorney for Columbus, Bladen and Brunswick counties..
The State Bureau of Investigation and Columbus County Sheriff's Department are investigating the shooting, Gore said. Soles, who was not arrested,declined to discuss the incident Sunday evening.
"I am not in a position to talk to you," Soles said by telephone. "I'm right in the middle of an investigation."
The Senator, who has made a career of being against gun ownership for the general public, didn't hesitate to defend himself with his own gun when he believed he was in immediate danger and he was the victim.
In typical hypocritical liberal fashion, the "Do as I say and not as I do" Anti-Gun Activist Lawmaker picked up his gun and took action in what apparently was a self-defense shooting. Why hypocritical you may ask? It is because his long legislative record shows that the actions that he took to protect his family, his own response to a dangerous life threatening situation, are actions that he feels ordinary citizens should not have if they were faced with an identical situation.
It has prompted some to ask if the Senator believes his life and personal safety is more valuable than yours or mine.
But, this is to be expected from those who believe they can run our lives, raise our kids, and protect our families better than we can.

Talk about HYPOCRISY!! It's okay for THEM to have guns and shoot people, but don't see any of the medial making any stories about it!!!

Send This To Everyone You Know. Ask That They Send It To
Everyone They Know !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks! Personally I don't know how to shoot a gun and don't want to, but I don't want anyone telling me I can't own one. My husband has several hunting guns and has had them all our married life (45 yrs) and we raised 3 children and 6 grands and never had to trouble with them "playing" with any of them. They were raised to respect any kind of weapon.

A slap in the faces of Marines by Obama

Thursday, February 21, 2013

Dishonoring the Corps; Marines in inaugural parade had bolts removed from their rifles

Dishonored and disarmed: Bolts are clearly missing from these Marine rifles during President Obama’s inauguration parade. This is an unmistakable insult to the honor of the Marine Corps.
David Codrea has revealed that President Obama has so little regard for the United States Marines risking their lives under his command life that they were forced to dismantle their already empty parade rifles for his second inauguration parade. This is nothing less than a slap in the face of the Corps:
“Didn’t know the Marines had to take the bolts out of their rifles for the Inaugural,” an email forwarded to Gun Rights Examiner from a United States Marine Corps source observed. “Wonder if someone can explain why [they] would be marching in the inaugural parade with no bolts in their rifles!”
The email linked to a YouTube video of the 57th Presidential Inaugural Parade, embedded in this column, featuring Bravo Company Marines from the Marine Barracks Washington. Sure enough, the observation in the email is confirmed by watching the video, with screen shots provided in the photo and slide show accompanying this article.
This prompted an internet search to see if others had also noticed, and the Blur-Brain blog had.
“The bolts have been removed from the rifles rendering them unable to fire a round,” the post stated. “Apparently Obama’s Secret Service doesn’t trust the USMC. Simply searching each guy to make sure he didn’t have a live round hidden on him wasn’t enough, they had to make sure the guns were inoperable.
Obama doesn’t trust the very men who put their lives on the line to serve their country. I guess it shouldn’t be that much of a shock. Untrustworthy people find it very difficult to believe that other men have honor.

    The President may need a lot of protection in the years to come so he may need to be nicer to those sworn to obey.

A Poem Worth Reading

A Poem Worth Reading

He was getting old and paunchy
And his hair was falling fast,
And he sat around the Legion,
Telling stories of the past.

Of a war that he once fought in
And the deeds that he had done,
In his exploits with his buddies;
They were heroes, every one.

And 'tho sometimes to his neighbors
His tales became a joke,
All his buddies listened quietly
For they knew where of he spoke.

But we'll hear his tales no longer,
For ol' Joe has passed away,
And the world's a little poorer
For a Soldier died today.

He won't be mourned by many,
Just his children and his wife.
For he lived an ordinary,
Very quiet sort of life.

He held a job and raised a family,
Going quietly on his way;
And the world won't note his passing,
'Tho a Soldier died today.

When politicians leave this earth,
Their bodies lie in state,
While thousands note their passing,
And proclaim that they were great.

Papers tell of their life stories
From the time that they were young
But the passing of a Soldier
Goes unnoticed, and unsung.

Is the greatest contribution
To the welfare of our land,
Some jerk who breaks his promise
And cons his fellow man?

Or the ordinary fellow
Who in times of war and strife,
Goes off to serve his country
And offers up his life?

The politician's stipend
And the style in which he lives,
Are often disproportionate,
To the service that he gives.

While the ordinary Soldier,
Who offered up his all,
Is paid off with a medal
And perhaps a pension, small.

It is not the politicians
With their compromise and ploys,
Who won for us the freedom
That our country now enjoys.

Should you find yourself in danger,
With your enemies at hand,
Would you really want some cop-out,
With his ever waffling stand?

Or would you want a Soldier
His home, his country, his kin,
Just a common Soldier,
Who would fight until the end.

He was just a common Soldier,
And his ranks are growing thin,
But his presence should remind us
We may need his likes again.
For when countries are in conflict,
We find the Soldier's part
Is to clean up all the troubles
That the politicians start.

If we cannot do him honor
While he's here to hear the praise,
Then at least let's give him homage
At the ending of his days.

Perhaps just a simple headline
In the paper that might say:

Pass On The Patriotism! YOU can make a difference.
If you are proud of our Vets, then send this to them. You'll be glad you did.

    Thank you.This is so true .It is a fact that there are many all around us ,not so many from World War Two now but still so many from Vietnam and Korea ,they won't tell you what they did . As a military vet myself and a military wife I know to salute them but many are forgotten.The man who is a greeter at my local grocery store flew choppers in Vietnam on Veteran's day I gave him a box of chocolates and said thank -you.He cried.He said so few people even remember let alone say thank you.
