The administration is lying. About just about everything. Even the press is getting fed up.
Congress is brow-beating major companies for following the (tax) law. How many of you tabulated your taxes last month and then decided to kick in an extra 100 bucks?
As for the ATF in Wisconsin, the IRS, and the rest of the inmates, I can’t even enjoy their pain. They are running the asylum in exactly the way I expected them too. It is all too sad.
The results are fairly predictable. Home Invasion Suspect in Critical Condition after Being Shot by Homeowner.
What would you do if someone broke into your home at 4pm?
Police say the resident of the home was present at the time of the invasion, and shot the intruder inside the house.

You should listen to Kenn Blanchard. Not just to support him, but because he is interesting.

When the cops are shaking down tow-truck drivers for bribes and kickbacks, you know you must be in Chicago. 8th Chicago officer Convicted in Tow-Truck Scam | NBC Chicago.
A federal jury has convicted a 46-year-old Chicago police officer for accepting payments from a tow truck driver in exchange for steering business from accident scenes his way.
Jurors returned with a verdict against Deavalin Page after two hours of deliberations Friday. They convicted him on two counts of attempted extortion. Each carries a maximum 20-year prison term.
He got the maximum, 40-year sentence.
Illinois in general and Chicago in particular is the capital of official corruption. (How many recent Illinois governors ended up doing federal time for corruption? A lot more than just Blagojevich.)
Hey, they make all kinds of money off guns. Big, bad, black rifles with lots of rounds in the magazines. Guess they forgot to get the special “but we’re better than you” loophole in the new law. Hollywood Fears New York’s Gun Control Laws May Stymie Filming – NYTimes.com.
So I hope this puts a whole bunch of “we hate guns, even if they make it possible for us to make millions of bucks” actors, directors, whatever.
Hey, they hate guns. Why are they making movies about them? [Hat tip Uncle]
In cold water, you have hypothermia. In warm water, there are sharks. Best to stay on the boat. Two passengers missing from Carnival cruise ship off Australia – latimes.com.
A long fall into water. Turbulence from the screw. 1000 square miles of ocean. It will be a special miracle if these 2 are found after this long.
Travel News You Can Use – What Happens When a Passenger Goes Overboard.
This article contains some interesting statistics. I do love the stats.
Cruise Page, a website that tracks cruise statistics, has pulled out some interesting trends. It turns out that males are much more likely to go overboard than females. On average, a passenger that goes overboard is 41 years old. Most incidents happen at night.
Alcohol is often involved. (Go figure... alcohol on a cruise?)
Carnival, as the budget cruise company, (relative to some of them - yes, it is affordable) gets grief for having more incidents of people going overboard. But then I bet they have a younger and rowdier, and drunker clientele. But that is only a guess. They are also one of the larger lines... ]
So is this news? (Man bites dog? or dog bites man?) If you break into homes, you will eventually meet an armed homeowner. Probably sooner in Texas. One person shot after home burglary attempt.
What exactly did you think would happen?
