Nice haircut. Almost covers up the lobotomy scar.

Who Set It Up and Who Paid The Price
It began when left-wing activists from off-campus arrived by bus on Friday May 1 1970 to host a May Day protest rally.
Kent State, a small university in northeast Ohio, had been chosen.

On May 11-12, 1997, NASA used a specially outfitted Lear Jet to collect thermal data on metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia. Nicknamed “Hot-Lanta” by some of its residents, the city saw daytime air temperatures of only about 26.7 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit) on those days, but some of its surface temperatures soared to 47.8 degrees Celsius (118 degrees Fahrenheit). In this image, blue shows cool temperatures and red shows warm temperatures. Pockets of especially hot temperatures appear in white.
50 degrees Celsius = 120 degrees Fahrenheit = flat roof temperature. The red zone looks to be about 30C = 86F, but these are surface temperatures. The 1997 survey recorded air temperatures of 80 F – exactly the average high temp for May for Atlanta. Cool.
In other words, it’s a peachy image of normal surface temperatures for the city.

Here’s a solution to the Anti-2nd Amendment (Anti-Self-Defense) crowd.
I propose that every child over the age of 10 be instructed in the safe handling and use of firearms; and that every adult shall be required to purchase, carry and display either a genuine weapon or a paper facsimile (painted flat black) at all times. The criminal element will be unnerved and uncertain as to who might return fire.
Licensed law-abiding citizens who desire to may carry the real deal, while those who are scared of the prospect of having to defend themselves with weaponry may use this inexpensive biodegradable camouflage and hope that a thug doesn’t challenge them with a flick of the Bic to the barrel. If that happens, the masquerade is as effective as a blackened bratwurst in a toilet paper tube.
But that won’t happen because Mister Gangbang can’t be sure that the real deal isn’t aimed at Mister Happy by an unseen bystander – with a bright red laser sighted on his cojones.
With all the recent Huffin’ N Puffin’ N Rapier Rattlin’ from some small sectors about States seceding from The Union (due to rampant fiscal insanity emanating from Washington D.C.) kudos to Key West and Mayor Dennis Wardlow. His preceding secession succeeded.
On April 23, 1982, the Florida keys seceded from the Union. Frustrated that a U.S. Border Patrol checkpoint was obstructing the main artery to the mainland, Key West mayor Dennis Wardlow opted for a lighthearted public relations campaign: He proclaimed his “Conch Republic” a separate nation, declared war on the United States, surrendered one minute later, and applied for $1 billion in foreign aid.
Since then the republic has maintained an uneasy peace with its giant neighbor. On Sept. 20, 1995, when an Army reserve battalion forgot to notify Key West of local training exercises, Wardlow mobilized for war. He sent letters to Bill Clinton, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and secretary of state Warren Christopher, and his militia engaged La Dichosa Bakery to bake Cuban bread with which to pelt the convoy (“our historic weapon of choice for dealing with Federalist Forces”) and Key West Lager “to provide the beer.”
By 10:50 p.m. they had received a fax from the battalion’s leaders stating that they had “in no way meant to challenge or impugn the sovereignty of the Conch Republic.” An official surrender ceremony was held two days later.
That’s not a photoshop. That’s an awesome Halloween costume.
I hope you all saw that kangaroo court of a “debate” this past Thursday.
Despite Vice President Joe Biden’s theatrics and Martha “ObamaAttendedMyWedding” Raddatz’ intentional avoidance to squelch the continual one-sided interruptions of Paul Ryan’s commentary (96 to 6 according to one source), that picture is equal to a 1,000 word summary of the circus. Ryan was shouted down.
It was not a “debate.” It was an exhibition of how leftists/liberals/progressives lie, even when called on those lies. Regardless of your party affiliation, that their supporters in the media support such obvious fabrications and propaganda as Vice President Joe Biden promoted during that “debate” is abhorrent.
Whatever happened to “objective journalism?” Where is Walt Kelly now that we need him?
