Professor: Obama Should Be Allowed to Run for a Third Term

Via Knuckledraggin' My Life Away

Want more Obama?

In The Washington Post, Jonathan Zimmerman, a history professor from NYU, has written an article claiming that all of America’s problems would be soloved–GET THIS–if only we would allow Barack Obama to run for a third term!

He wants to amend the Constitution and abolish presidential term limits.

Zimmerman writes that Obama–whose approval rating is at an all time low of 37%–would be much more effective at governing if he could stand for re-election in 2016 because then he’d be less likely to “ignore” the will of the American people. “It’s time to put that power back where it belongs,” he writes. “Barack Obama should be allowed to stand for re election just as citizens should be allowed to vote for — or against — him. Anything less diminishes our leaders and ourselves.”

Deer stolen from Kaukauna hunter

It's a hunter's worst nightmare - having their trophy buck stolen. That's what happened to one Kaukauna man and his son while they were hunting up north near Birnamwood.  Now they are hoping to warn other hunters of this alleged deer thief.

Chris Hutchison of Kaukauna is very disappointed.

"It's a real empty, lost feeling, I mean when you get something stolen from you," said Hutchison.
Hutchison and his 19-year-old son, shot two bucks on the opening day of deer hunting. They were keeping them in the back of their truck while they continued to hunt.

"When we got back to the truck, back to the campground we noticed someone had stolen the deer yesterday afternoon," said Hutchison.

Everyday Hero: Marine Vet Saves Woman's Life at Football Stadium


The Marine Corps has an old phrase, Semper Fidelis. It means “always faithful.” This attitude of service certainly rang true this weekend, when 61-year-old veteran Donnie Navidad instinctively dashed forward to catch a woman on a 50 foot free fall inside the Oakland Raiders' stadium.

"He simply saved her life," Alameda County sheriff's Sgt. J.D. Nelson stated.

Navidad grabbed and embraced the plummeting stranger and the two slammed into the concrete together. The softened impact still left the woman hospitalized in critical condition. Paramedics cut off Navidad’s "Bo" Jackson jersey to access his wounded arm.

New York chef suffers broken jaw, nose in likely 'knockout game' attack in Philadelphia

Via Horace 

 FILE: Diego Moya KNOCKOUT - Manhattan chef Diego Moya was an apparent victim of the �Knockout� game while visiting his family in Philadelphia for Thanksgiving. The chef, who is a chef at Casa Mono, suffered a broken jaw and nose during the attack Tuesday night. Moya was ambushed by six males, between the ages of 16 and 21, and punched, without anything being stolen.

 Must have been those right wing, racist Tar Heel Confederates again........

Police are investigating a vicious attack on a Manhattan chef who was walking alone on Tuesday night when he was allegedly assaulted by a group of six to eight men, all between the ages of 16 and 21. ‘I'm not well, a lot of swelling and overall pain,’ said victim Diego Moya. ‘Should be four weeks until I lose the wires and can eat normally, which is devastating being a chef. Means I can't work.’

Preaching the Everlasting Shell Game

John Brown carried one of “Beecher’s Bibles” at Harper’s Ferry, provided by a man greatly responsible for the war that ended the republic.  Upon Beauregard’s demand for the surrender of Fort Sumter in April 1861 Beecher was to proclaim that “I utterly abhor peace . . . Give me war redder than blood and fiercer than fire.” The abolitionists would offer no practical and peaceful solution to slavery, only war to the knife and a million dead.

Preaching the Everlasting Shell Game

“Henry Ward Beecher, the most popular preacher in America, famous for his spellbinding crusades against slavery, liquor, the secret vice and every other evil, committed adultery with at least one woman of his congregation, a woman who happened also to be a Sunday School teacher and the wife of an admiring protégé of Beecher’s.  

The offense itself is not so revealing as the spirit of callous exploitation with which it was carried out and the deceit and hypocrisy with which it was covered up. Beecher was warmly defended by the establishment of his day.  Most of the press declared his innocence and his parishioners raised $100,000 for his legal expenses, while those who brought the charges that we now know to be true were hounded. 

The powers that be, then as now, rush to the rescue when their most valuable asset, their pretense of superior moral vision, is threatened. Henry’s deceit in this episode was not merely a weakness displayed on one painful occasion. It was a way of life to a man whose fame and riches were built on a conveniently abstract, unscrupulously-aggressive, politically irresponsible moralizing.  

In his memoirs, for example, Henry lied about so simple a thing as a college debate. He recounted an occasion in which he had carried the house against a proposal for the colonization of blacks outside the United States.  In fact, he had not participated in the debate in question and the pro-colonization side had won.  Characteristically, he had falsely glorified his own role and distorted the historical record to make his antislavery stand date to a much earlier and more dangerous period than it actually did.

The story of the Beecher’s is that of people who proclaimed themselves the champions of freedom and morality and demonized those who disagreed, while all the time keeping their hand in the till and their eye on the main chance.  The chief lesson we can learn is that there is something in the American fabric that guarantees that now and then such people will succeed outrageously. 

Today’s secular liberals will, of course, dismiss Henry Ward Beecher as simply a typical hypocritical Protestant moralist. Yet he was one of them. He was a leading liberal of his day, a crusader not for souls but for political and social reform.  He was an establishment figure, not a small-town vigilante.
He spoke from a position of power and respectability from which he safely and irresponsibly rode to the outer limits every fad of his day. 

Beecher is not the father of the Moral Majority; he is the father of the smug establishment figures who juggle morality and sybaritic life-styles in an everlasting shell game.  

That strange combination of Puritanism and democracy which wreaked so much havoc in the 19th century, having done its work and reached the natural limits of its expansion, began a retreat into narrower and less dangerous limits after the debacle of Reconstruction. Something very similar is perhaps happening now.  If so, we can hope once again for leaders for whom public life, as for Lee, is an arena for the exercise of private virtue rather than, as for the Beechers, a vehicle for the social mobilization of private greed and discontent.” (1982)

Jamaican authorities have seized 3,300 warheads and a missile-making machine at the port of Kingston and sought help from international police in tracking the shipper, Jamaican media reported Friday.

The unauthorized arms shipment was discovered Thursday afternoon in a police and customs operation carried out at a berth of Kingston Wharves, the RJR News site reported.

A high-level investigation has been launched, and Jamaican police have asked for assistance from international law enforcement, the news service said.

For Nearly Two Decades the Nuclear Launch Code at all Minuteman Silos in the United States Was 00000000


Today I found out that during the height of the Cold War, the US military put such an emphasis on a rapid response to an attack on American soil, that to minimize any foreseeable delay in launching a nuclear missile, for nearly two decades they intentionally set the launch codes at every silo in the US to 8 zeroes.

We guess the first thing we need to address is how this even came to be in the first place. Well, in 1962 JFK signed the National Security Action Memorandum 160, which was supposed to ensure that every nuclear weapon the US had be fitted with a Permissive Action Link (PAL), basically a small device that ensured that the missile could only be launched with the right code and with the right authority.

Cancer Patient Who Spoke Out Against ObamaCare Now Being Audited

Via WiscoDave

Bill Elliot was a cancer patient who lost his insurance due to ObamaCare and couldn’t pay the expensive new premiums. He was talking about paying the ObamaCare fine, going without health insurance and “letting nature take its course.”

He went on FOX News where his story was picked up by C. Steven Tucker, a health insurance broker who helped him keep his insurance.

Now suddenly Bill Elliot is being audited for 2009 with an interview only scheduled in April 2014. Assuming he lives that long. That might be a coincidence, but Tucker is being audited back to 2003.
That’s a rather strange coincidence.
