completely different for some reason. I don't know where this was

Eddie Overholt was attending his second county board meeting last
Friday when he was arrested by police for interfering with a public
meeting and resisting arrest for the dastardly act of asking county
officials to speak up so that the audience could hear the proceedings.
According to 76-year old Overholt and others present at the meeting,
the board had assembled around a table at the front of the room. Some
city officials were turned with their backs facing the crowd making it
difficult to hear what was being said.
Members of the audience began interrupting the proceedings with
shouts, laughter, applause and complaints that they couldn’t hear, at
which point the mayor warned the next outburst would lead to someone
being removed from the building.
At this point Overholt, who had been making his way to the front of
the room, addressed the mayor and the board and said, “would y’all speak
up so the audience can hear you?”
The mayor subsequently ordered the local police chief to remove him
from the building, to which Overholt protested that he was attending a
public meeting and needed to hear, not just ‘look’ at what was
In a statement posted to Facebook Overholt explained that, as he was being walked to jail, the arresting officer added another charge for resisting arrest:
Some redundant information, but worth reading in full.
mention of social media posts which show rebels "bragging" about
bringing down the airliner is likely a reference to a post on the
Russian version of Facebook shortly after MH17 was shot down by
Ukrainian rebel commander Igor Strelkov. However, as Max Fisher documents, "There are real reasons to doubt that the message was genuine.
First of all Strelkov's page "is a fake made by fans," according to rebels who spoke to Buzzfeed's Max Seddon,
so the words cannot even be attributed to the commander. In addition,
the post makes reference to the shoot down not of a civilian airliner
but to an Antonov AN-26 military transport plane.

On a rural stretch of County Road 400
in Amity, Indiana, the road splits around a small mound of earth
located in the center of the roadway. That mound is the grave of Nancy
Kerlin Barnett (1793-1831) and it is in the middle of the road for a
most unusual reason. As the 1912 historical marker at the site explains,
when the county planned to run a road through the cemetery in which
Barnett was laid to rest, her grandson Daniel Doty guarded the plot with
a gun until the county relented and built the road around the grave.
More obfuscation from this worthless administration.

21 Mar 1973,
Saigon, South Vietnam --- Visit with Daddy...A South Vietnamese soldier
is visited by his wife and children March 21 while he is on guard duty.
It may seem antiquated, but the primary function of a U.S. Army
soldier has not changed since the inception of the Continental Army. A
soldier always has, and likely always will be, tasked with performing
guard duty in one capacity or another. Perhaps you are wondering what
this has to do with survival security. If a method for securing a
variety of locations as well as various-sized elements has worked so
well for centuries, doesn’t it seem like it would serve a group well
during a survival scenario, regardless of the cause?
Obviously, the amount of technology that is currently available could
provide a great advantage in securing your stronghold. Things like
ground sensors, remotely controlled and monitored security cameras, and
automatically triggered obstacles are outstanding tools. But in most
cases, they are prohibitively expensive. And they also rely on systems
of support like electricity and telecommunications equipment to operate.
Because of these requirements, the guard will, for the foreseeable
future, remain the foundation of a survival security system, whether it
is mobile or stationary.
Maybe Lyndon Johnson really didn’t say what he was famously accused of having said
about his welfare programs. I would hope so; given that if he were
pursuing a bribes-for-votes strategy, then he has miserably failed.
This is what typically happens when a welfare state discovers the
fundamental economic paradox. From Wikipedia we can quickly learn that this problem is as follows: The economic problem is most simply explained by the question: “How do we satisfy unlimited wants with limited resources?”
We can further derive the following lemmas. A demand can only be
temporarily satisfied and then perpetually reappears unless the people
demanding are trained to handle it themselves. A welfare state produces
virtually nothing on its own accord to satisfy any demand, so it has to
steal someone else’s wealth or property to fulfill any demand.
Finally, we can easily observe that people dependent upon a welfare
state never develop the desire or the ability to cope with anything they
don’t get made to. Literally anything. If you think I’m kidding,

In early 2008 I noted a fairly serious decrease in online "revenue per impression" in the advertising space. This was not

For all the Baby Boomers out in
media land, could there be a jingle more annoying than
Wendy’s, octogenarian with her nails-scratching-on-the-chalkboard,
“WHERE’S THE BEEF?” Well, lately if you have been anywhere near a street
corner in a major city or close to an electronic device that emits
sounds, then undoubtedly you have heard the battle jingle of the “Arab
Street” along with their pseudo-Marxist trust fund baby comrades, together
spewing, “From-the-River-to-the-Sea, Palestine-will-be-Free.” Though
this little ditty has a melodic tone and maybe a good hip-hop rapper can
make it jump, the curious among you may want to ask, “Hey, what does
that river-to-the-sea business actually mean?”

Here we go again with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry leveraging a
tragedy to make another "strong case" based on limited evidence. We have
already seen this in the case of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and
chemical weapons. Now it's Russian President Vladimir Putin's turn for
the global smear treatment.
Presumably we're supposed to rush to adopt the notion that Russia's
fingerprints are all over last week's downing of Malaysia Airlines
Flight MH17 over Ukraine -- just as we were supposed to buy into Kerry's
story last year about the Assad regime's use of chemical weapons
against his own people. That rhetoric almost ended up serving as a
pretext for U.S. military action, and it would have if Putin hadn't
stepped in and offered to babysit Assad and oversee the removal of
potential chemical threats.
The parallels in Kerry's rhetoric on Ukraine and Syria are
remarkable. In the wake of last August's chemical weapons attack in
Syria, Kerry said Assad's responsibility was "undeniable" and warned of
an "informed response" by the U.S. that teetered on the brink of
military action. Meanwhile, Putin noted that there was no actual
evidence to back up Kerry's claim.
A subsequent United Nations report failed to pin any blame on Assad, but the narrative had already been entrenched.
"Nobody's going to turn away a child," Reay added, "but the fact is we

Without that, Babeu said, Obama would be wasting any emergency funds he gets from Congress.
"President Obama may as well throw this money out the window, because
this is a one-time Band-Aid," he said. "It does not address the core
issue, an unsecured border.
"By turning this as purely a humanitarian crisis without fixing the 2008
deficiencies of the law, President Obama is sending a message to future
illegals that if you get to the border, you're home free."
Babeu illustrated his frustration this way, reflecting on the latest
government estimates: "What comes next? How does President Obama say no
to the next 90,000? He doesn't — and then, there's another $3.7
"If we don't stand for the rule of law, this just further undermines who
we are as Americans. This number is going to be far greater, and the

"For every other American, the law applies to us — yet when it comes to
immigration, it appears that there is no law, because there is no
consequences for breaking the law," Babeu said.

As President Obama arrives in Los Angeles for his $32,000 per plate
fundraiser at the home of Shonda Rhimes this week, a local street artist
is pointing out the irony of the producer of the hit TV show Scandal,
a show about a Washington public relations firm that specializes in
managing political scandals, hosting the producer of such actual
scandals as the cover-up surrounding the Benghazi attack, the lost
hard-drives of IRS officials targeting conservatives, and the Fast and

Posters went up Monday night all over Hollywood around Rhimes's Hancock Park home and the Sunset Gower Studios where Scandal is filmed.
I’m afraid we may be looking at an upcoming generation of Southern
children who don’t know what it means to say “sir” and “ma’am.”
It’s an interesting concept, but Southerners are certainly known for
politeness, and that includes the habit of saying “sir” and “ma’am.” If
a Southern child simply says a terse “yes” or “no,” (or, heaven forbid,
a “yep” or a “nope”), a nearby adult will quickly follow-up with, “yes,
what?” or “no, what?”
And the child who had momentarily forgotten his
manners had better instantly reply with “yes, sir,” or “no, ma’am.” The
child can also consider it a good day if the adult didn’t include a
resounding thump as part of this exchange.
But here’s the funny part. While we Southerners consider it
offensive and rude to NOT refer to an adult as “sir” or “ma’am,” Yankees
basically consider it insulting to do so, and think of them as fighting
words. Unless they’ve had a military background, Yankee women
especially take it as insulting and derogatory to be called “ma’am” by
Representative Luis Gutierrez addressed the National Council of La
Raza in hyper tones, calling not only for more amnesties but also for
the crowd to “punish” their adversaries who would oppose them.
Apparently, Eric Holder’s prior separatist reference to “my people” when
talking of African Americans, and President Obama’s earlier 2010
racialist call for Latinos “to punish our enemies” have filtered down as
mainstream nomenclature and emboldened others. But how strange that
“raza,” “my people,” and “our people” are now politically correct words
in a linguistically sensitive age when referents like the Washington
“Redskins” or “illegal” immigrants are considered racially insensitive.
might stop for a second, and ask what the logical trajectory is of a
multiracial America in which particular ethnic groups refer to
themselves as “our” or “my” people — would not the corollary be that
those Americans outside the proper ethnic circle would be “not our
people” or “not my people”?
German artist Oliver Bienkowski probably wasn’t seeking the U.S.
government’s approval when he projected onto the U.S. embassy in Berlin,
early last Saturday, the words “NSA in da House” beside a peace sign

But the U.S. State Department, while it disagrees with the message, says it’s okay with the act.

ability of people to freely express that message,” State Dept.
spokeswoman Marie Harf told reporters at Tuesday’s daily press briefing.
They were the first substantive comments the State Dept. had offered on the act.
