SUE The Bastards!

I read this headline with some amazement. "Passengers Sued Over Imams' Removal" The article goes on to point out the allegedly terrible accounts of the poor Imams as they made a spectacle of themselves while boarding an airplane last fall.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Six Muslim men removed from a plane last fall after being accused of suspicious behavior are suing not only the airline but the passengers who complained—a move some fear could discourage travelers from speaking up when they see something unusual.
The civil rights lawsuit, filed earlier this month, has so alarmed some lawyers that they are offering to defend the unnamed "John Doe" passengers free of charge. They say it is vital that the flying public be able to report suspicious behavior without fear of being dragged into court.


Now, I'm just a simple law talking type attorney guy but it seems to me that the Imam's are getting a pass here. Huh? Yes, a pass...why is it that the passengers are not suing the Imams? That's right, Sue the Bastards! This is America (last time I checked) and this is the way we roll when wronged...sue em! Why shouldn't these men of gawd be responsible for THEIR actions? They appear to have acted intentionally just to scare the wits out of the other passengers. They had a plan and executed it.


So, let's sue em! Just off the top of my tort laden brain I can think of several causes of action..... Negligence, Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress, Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress, Public Nuisance, Private Nuisance and let's throw in a request for punitive damages as these guys were acting deliberately with malice. That's just for starters. Give me some time to reflect and I might want to add CAIR as a defendant....hmmmm

The "John Doe" defendants do not need to be defended, they need to be represented! I'll take the case on a contingent fee basis...no recovery=no fee.

Giddy-up!

How Modern Liberal's Think

Here's a link to a YouTube video by Evan Sayet. Who is that, oh great Rumbear. Well, grasshopper, Evan started out as a stand up comedian. He then well, ...... let's go to his website;

Segueing into writing, he was an integral part of the team that made “The Arsenio Hall Show” the first late night program in thirty years to give “The Tonight Show” a run for its money and then the very first Creative Consultant on the highly respected “Politically Incorrect with Bill Maher” (back when Maher was funny)

Bill Maher funny? Whoa, that was a long time ago...but, I digress. So Evan continued on;

The latest twist in Evan’s career came during the recent Presidential elections when he turned his attention and skills towards convincing others of the greatness of America and the need to reelect the President and stay the course in the Middle East. In short time Evan was made Communications Director for Los Angeles for President Bush, wrote a number of articles for major conservative outlets, was asked to offer weekly commentary on KMJ radio (an Infinity station) and began to deliver his lecture “Regurgitating the Apple: How Modern Liberals ‘Think’” to an ever-growing audience.

The video is from a Heritage Foundation gathering. If you do nothing else, listen to the first three-four minutes. It will give you a wonderful analogy that will leave your liberal friends dumbfounded when next ye speak.

Flip....Flop, Flip...Flop


So the great Republican Senator, Chuck Hagel (ed note: Who?) has voted with the Dumbacrats for a withdrawal of troops from Iraq. Senator Joe, "Uh, Define Plagiarism", Biden joined him in this epic decision. Well let's look back to see where these stooges were in oh, say, 2002. Through the wonders of the Internet we can do that....even humble Bears like yours truly from their caves in the wild can do this...so here's what we found.


Although no one doubts our forces will prevail over Saddam Hussein's, key regional leaders confirm what the Foreign Relations Committee emphasized in its Iraq hearings last summer: The most challenging phase will likely be the day after -- or, more accurately, the decade after -- Saddam Hussein.


Once he is gone, expectations are high that coalition forces will remain in large numbers to stabilize Iraq and support a civilian administration. That presence will be necessary for several years, given the vacuum there, which a divided Iraqi opposition will have trouble filling and which some new Iraqi military strongman must not fill. Various experts have testified that as many as 75,000 troops may be necessary, at a cost of up to $ 20 billion a year. That does not include the cost of the war itself, or the effort to rebuild Iraq.

So in 2002 we have these two pillars of virtue admitting:

A). There was a plan or at the very least discussion of the troubles in post victory Iraq in 2001.

B). Ten years of occupation to allow for stabilization of the country was conceded

C). Ongoing troop deployment in Iraq

D). 20 billion a year (not including $100 billion or so in Democrat pork projects).

And now back to the future.

Welcome back, now Cut & Run.

Sheesh.........

Bush Protects Senator Feinstein ?

I got this attorney firing thing figured out!

SEN. Dianne Feinstein has resigned from the Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee. As previously and extensively reviewed in these pages, Feinstein was chairperson and ranking member of MILCON for six years, during which time she had a conflict of interest due to her husband Richard C. Blum's ownership of two major defense contractors, who were awarded billions of dollars for military construction projects approved by Feinstein.

Yup,maybe this is why President Bush had the U. S Attorneys fired. They were getting to close to DiFi. Carol Lam, the U. S Attorney in San Diego responsible for putting Ex Congressman Randy "Duke" Cunnigham in the Big House for, well, pretty much the same damn thing was surely on the case. Right? Anyone? Buehler?! Ferris Buehler.....

I can hardly wait to read about this in the Main Stream Media (MSM) crickets...........lot's of crickets.

UPDATE: Michelle's got some more details on this

U. S Attorneys Fired!

Okay, okay a number of you have written and inquired as to the inner thoughts of the Rumbear on the firings of the 8 lackeys formerly known as U. S. Attorneys. Well, my original reaction is not printable, so I will quote our dear friend Ann, (Bonus: I get to use her foto) Bush should say: "We did it, it was political, and there's nothing you can do about it."

It is a non-story folks. Pure spin and a joy to watch from that perspective.

As an aside, I was perusing the paper this morning while enjoying a steaming cup of Costa Rican caffeine and noted that Circuit City is firing 3400 employees because they make to much money. No word on when the Congressional hearing will begin on that matter.

RanDumb Thoughts

Watching the UK - Iran situation unfold I was drawn to a comparison. The UK handling of Iran is quite similar to the way Bush deals with the Democrats. I keep hoping, i.e. praying, that the UK and President Bush will get a backbone (er, spine) and give em what for. However, current history suggests that a warm, slimey cup of compromise and understanding is about to be poured.

Cheers!

UPDATE: March 29, 2007, Apparently I'm not alone with the above thought. "A great power is as great as its credibility. Right now, it’s Britain that’s cratering." Mark Steyn.

UPDATE, UPDATE: Just heard that the UK has now gone to the United Nations for a resolution condemning Iran for it's action. Boy, that'll show them Mullahs what for!!

Deliberate this!

Aide to Senator Webb arrested with a loaded pistol and TWO fully loaded clips in a briefcase that "allegedly" belonged to Webb?!
Folks that's a whole lotta firepower! Maybe those votes have been a little too close of late. Can you even imagine if a republican Senator got caught at this. Oh my God...... they would be ridden out of town on a rail.

Let's watch how the Main Stream Press (MSM) spins this one. Well, uh, Webb was/is a Marine....he knows all about them gun things....move along no story here..

Happy Anniversary!

Big Surprise! (NOT!)

Well, well, well. This headline should NOT come as a big surprise to anyone...


except the banks that loaned the bucks. Who knew that providing loans to illega...er.. UN documented immigrants might be a risk? Who knew that they might not be able to keep up with the payments? Shucks, not us!

Recall the big banking entities started making loans available to "undocumented " immigrants about 1 1/2 to 2 years ago. No social security number required! They cared enough to want to help these folks get a start here in America. They cared enough to stand tall while their motives were questioned. They just wanted to help. If you are/were against this program YOU are a racist, bigoted SOB who just does not want these simple folks to get a foot hold in America.

Recently the Bank of Amigo (America) has begun offering these same "undocumented" immigrants a credit card. No documentation required! Why? Because they care. I give it a year. Then we will have defaults amundo (a little Spanish lingo) in this sector of the credit card portfolio. Again, if you are/were against this program YOU are a racist, bigoted SOB who just does not want these simple folks to get a foot hold in America.
Greed.

So now their housing is being taken away and no doubt the credit cards will soon be in default. Soon they will reach the pinnacle of life in America VICTIMHOOD. Just wait until the Latino groups get wind of this.....It's not fair! Something must be done!

The Rumbear has one question......who is gonna pay for it? That's right those racist, bigoted folks who had the nerve to say ...... "hey, wait a minute"... several years ago. To paraphrase comedian Dennis Miller , I'm a white, Anglo Saxon, male in the USA...I'm everybody's a _ _.

Welcome to America......please do not send me the bill.......

Sing Along!!


It's one, two, three, ... four....... five........ six times your OUT at the ole border game!!! Hey Rumbear, your singing stinks!


Yeah, so does our border enforcement.

Seems that internal documents from the Justice Department show that illegals can cross the border up to six times before they are prosecuted. N I C E !, as Borat would say.

Documents released in the controversy about eight fired U.S. attorneys show that federal prosecutors in Texas generally have declined to bring criminal charges against illegal immigrants caught crossing the border — until at least their sixth arrest.

However, those same overworked US Attorneys will make time to prosecute two Border Patrol agents that shot a drug smuggler who was believed to be armed.


(FREE Ramos & Compeon!)

Maybe it was only the drug smuggler's third or fourth time getting caught.......

Whips & Chains

HRH Pelosi continues in her struggle to garner votes for the bill to fund the war while remaining true to her liberal underthings as being against the war. The tightrope walk is the first real test of HRH Pelosi and her cabal as they try to hold the Democrats together.

She must persuade at least 218 of the 233 House Democrats to support the legislation, even though many have strong misgivings. It's a risky balancing act that, as of Wednesday, was proving very difficult for Pelosi to pull off, one of her top deputies conceded.

Rep. Rahm Emanuel (Ill.), the Democratic Caucus chairman, said that party leaders still did not have enough votes to pass the measure, but he was confident they would when the bill reaches the floor.

The extreme faction of the party led by Rep Maxine Waters do not want any funding of the war. PERIOD. Unfortunately, the majority of the country does not feel that way. Thus, the Speaker is attempting to prevent a vote that has the potential to make the Democrats look like....uh, hmmm, fools. The basic premise is this bill will allow for the withdrawal on a civilized basis (i.e. it will not offend the majority in the country).

"If they fail to provide our troops with what they need it's on their backs," said Republican Rep. Eric Cantor of Virginia.

So HRH Pelosi is whipping, begging and otherwise cajoling the holdouts with promise of retribution, funding for pork projects and anything else that will get them on board.

To get them off the fence and on the bill, Democrats have a key weapon at their disposal: cold, hard cash. The bill contains billions for agriculture and drought relief, children's health care and Gulf Coast hurricane recovery.

For Rep. Sam Farr (D-Calif.), there is $25 million for spinach growers hurt by last year's E. coli scare. For three conservative Democrats in Georgia, there is $75 million for peanut storage. For lawmakers from the bone-dry West, there is $500 million for wildfire suppression. An additional $120 million is earmarked for shrimp and Atlantic menhaden fishermen.

So far, at least in public pronouncements, the $21 billion in funding beyond President Bush's request has earned Democrats nothing but scorn.

Indeed, folks there is so much pork in this bill that the recently elected Muslim, Rep. Keith Ellison, may not be able to support it on religious grounds. Yet, an extended time line just not good enough for Maxine and her pals. They prefer a more condensed scenario. Today, for instance, would be a good day for a full withdrawal, in their view.

So the whips are out and there is a lot of arm twisting going on amongst the Dem faithful. Great entertainment....and yes, humor for a Republican political junkie like Da Bear......stay tuned for the fireworks.
The former First Loser in the Presidential Race (Al Gore aka The Goreacle) touts pseudo science as fact in front of Congress. Future Presidential candidate Fred Thompson responds.

Some people think that our planet is suffering from a fever. Now scientists are telling us that Mars is experiencing its own planetary warming: Martian warming. It seems scientists have noticed recently that quite a few planets in our solar system seem to be heating up a bit, including Pluto.

NASA says the Martian South Pole’s “ice cap” has been shrinking for three summers in a row. Maybe Mars got its fever from earth. If so, I guess Jupiter’s caught the same cold, because it’s warming up too, like Pluto.


This has led some people, not necessarily scientists, to wonder if Mars and Jupiter, non signatories to the Kyoto Treaty, are actually inhabited by alien SUV-driving industrialists who run their air-conditioning at 60 degrees and refuse to recycle.

Silly, I know, but I wonder what all those planets, dwarf planets and moons in our SOLAR system have in common. Hmmmm. SOLAR system. Hmmmm. Solar? I wonder. Nah, I guess we shouldn’t even be talking about this. The science is absolutely decided. There’s a consensus.

Ask Galileo.


Point & match to Thompson. Game over.

Postscript: What about Uranus? Is it heating up? Hmmmmm.....

Goreacle

Do as I say, not as I do....de, doo, de, dooo

One Congressman called him a "prophet". Then another asked him to take his own PERSONAL ENERGY ETHICS PLEDGE. He refused.

He flat out refused to take the oath that he hypes in his movie. The oath that he demands YOU take. The oath he demands YOU live by to save the world. The arrogance is astounding.

Around these parts we call those folks hypocrites, charlatans* or for those folks from Rio Linda......Frauds!

*A charlatan is a person practicing
quackery or some similar confidence trick in order to obtain money or advantage by false pretenses.
YOU, Are Correct Sir!

Czech President Vaclav Klaus said on Wednesday that fighting global warming has turned into a a 'religion' that replaced the ideology of communism and threatens to clip basic freedoms.
The Goreacle Cometh!

All hail the Goreacle!! He has taken a time out from his high falootin jet-setting carbon rich lifestyle to address the peons and share his wisdom in a Congressional Hearing.

"Global warming is real, and human activity is the main cause," Gore lectured lawmakers.....

Wooooooooooo.........

Al, the globe is warmer, however, human activity is not the cause. Please go home and stop polluting the environment with your thoughts.

But why believe me, after all I'm just a Bear. Educate thyself ....... Here's a few articles for your edification and enjoyment.


Subpoena This!

Democrats in the House and Senate are hiking up their panties and getting ready to fight! Yup, they have issued subpoenas! Seems the Attorney Genearal should not be allowed to fire his politically appointed underlings without Congreesional approval....so say the Democrats. Never mind that Bill Clinton fired 93 of them...including two who were investigating his friends. Jimmy Carter did it. No problem. But George Bush does it and Lord Almighty we need hearings!!

To his credit, for the first time since he took office, the President has developed a backbone to support him in dealing with the Dems.

Would he fight Democrats in court to protect his aides against congressional subpoenas?
"Absolutely," Bush declared Tuesday in televised remarks from the White House.

My sense is the Democrats are once again overplaying a perilously weak hand. Be that as it may, let the litigation sensation begin..

Tuesday, March 20, 2007


Pssssttt, ..Hey Buddy...

can ya spare me a vote?

HRH Pelosi is scamming away trying to secure votes for her war funding bill that is up for review next week in the House. The Democratic leadership is using their favorite tool, your money, to bribe, cajole, arm twist and/or otherwise secure support for the bill that would demand a withdrawal from Iraq on a date certain.

House Democratic leaders are offering billions in federal funds for lawmakers' pet projects large and small to secure enough votes this week to pass an Iraq funding bill that would end the war next year.

So much for that Democratic "mandate" on the war...why do ya have to buy votes with a mandate?! But remember, THEY support the troops!

LAKELAND, Fla. — Officers fired 110 rounds of ammunition at the man suspected of killing a sheriff's deputy, killing the suspect, according to an autopsy released by the sheriff's office.

"I suspect the only reason 110 rounds was all that was fired was that's all the ammunition they had," said Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd . "We were not going to take any chance of him shooting back."

Hey, hey...... Sheriff Judd is my kinda guy. Of course, the officers were placed on administrative leave while an investigation into the hail of gunfire proceeded. Fortunately, they were cleared this week. Good shooting, indeed.

Child Abuse!

This clown should be arrested and Child Protective Services called in..... the GlowBall Warming pandering has reached a new low.

In recent years, the TED conference has gained a reputation for blissfully big ideas buoyed by unrelenting optimism. So few conference goers were prepared for venture capitalist John Doerr to choke up with emotion as he kicked off the second day of talks on Mar. 9.

"I'm scared," he told the audience, looking down at his 15-year-old daughter in the front row. "I don't think we're going to make it."

Buck up Johnny Boy...here's the two step plan to recovery so you can STOP terrorizing the children:
1). Get off the podium
2). Plant some marigolds......

Yeah like that's gonna happen. See ole Johnny boy is a venture capitalist. Seems he has his eye on this going "green" thing. Here's another quote from his speech...

Going green is the largest economic opportunity of the 21st century," said Doerr, who through his venture firm's Greentech initiative is investing in the sector. Although much attention has been focused on fighting global warming, Doerr offered a bleak assessment of these efforts. "I'm afraid it's not enough," he said.

Emphasis added as they say. Do you see it yet? "....Largest economic opportunity..." This is not about his 15 year old daughter, it is about YOU spending bucks to become "green" so HE can make a $$ through his company Greentech. So what if I use my kid along the way. As Deepthroat said oh so long ago....."Follow the money......"

GlowBall Warming Redux

Well, well, well. Seems the latest edition of the UN shock and awe report on GlowBall Warming (We're All Gonna Die!) is due out and the MSM is running amok once again. I came across this article "Global Warming is Not a Crisis" over at, uh, hmmm, ABC news. This snippet was of note:

Herein lies the moral danger behind global warming hysteria. Each day, 20,000 people in the world die of waterborne diseases. Half a billion people go hungry. A child is orphaned by AIDS every seven seconds. This does not have to happen. We allow it while fretting about "saving the planet." What is wrong with us that we downplay this human misery before our eyes and focus on events that will probably not happen even a hundred years hence? We know that the greatest cause of environmental degradation is poverty; on this, we can and must act.

The global warming "crisis" is misguided. In hubristically seeking to "control" climate, we foolishly abandon age-old adaptations to inexorable change. There is no way we can predictably manage this most complex of coupled, nonlinear chaotic systems.

Recall however, that the liberal left solved hunger/poverty/disease back in the 80's with concerts ...... Farm Aid, World Aid, Save Our Planet...uh aide..etc, etc, etc. Bono is solving the aids problem single handedly. so today, a cause is needed. First it was Global Cooling, then Acid Rain, then the Ozone. None of them had any staying power. Yet, much like the Mayan priests of old sacrifice, is needed and now GlowBall Warming fits the bill. We MUST sacrifice for our "...wicked fossil-fuel-driven ways..." or perish. Enter the Goracle.......boob bait for the bubbas, indeed.

Unfortunately for the Goracle, the opposition is ramping up. Over the weekend we had the release of "The Great Global Warming Swindle" on UK channel 4. Watch for the true believers to begin attacking the producers real soon.

Today we learn that the European Union ( The EU...Putting the PEON back in European!) wants to restrict the speed limit on the Autobahn because of ....GlowBall Warming. The bureaucratic bandwagon is coming folks....this IS big business.
Finally, perusing NRO this item caught my attention... A North Pole expedition meant to bring attention to global warming was called off after one of the explorers got frostbite. You can't make this stuff up people, hell, you don't have too.

GlowBall Warming on MARS!?

Luuucccy, you got some splaining to do!

Simultaneous warming on Earth and Mars suggests that our planet's recent climate changes have a natural—and not a human- induced—cause, according to one scientist's theory.

Seems a scientist, Habibullo Abdussamatov, head of the St. Petersburg's Pulkovo Astronomical Observatory in Russia has been studying data from NASA's Mars Global Explorer and found some interesting stuff. Mr. Abdussamatov, says the Mars data is evidence that the current global warming on Earth is being caused by changes in the sun.

Well, shoot! Hasn't he heard of the "consensus" theory? How the heck could he use scientific data and refute CONSENSUS! Curse you impertinent facts!

I expect at any time to learn that in reality the Mars Explorer was actually an SUV and it caused the pollution that is damaging Mars. America and Gearge Bush are to blame. It's just not enough that we kill Earth, now we are killing Mars. Oh the humanity.

Oh, the hypocrisy..........

Murtha Cuts Funds.... blah, blah, blah




....military gets creative. That's why we win.
I’m Neutral…..

So let me get this straight…

IF I am a socially conscious, politically correct, kinda human, like the Goracle and I know I’m stomping my carbon footprint all over the earth, like the Goracle. I can buy me some of them “Carbon Credits” and become “Carbon Neutral”. Hypocrisy be damned.....Life is Good.

So it would follow then that as an obese human and looking to better the world I could buy some “Calorie Credits” from my vegan neighbor and enjoy my Bigs Mac. I am “Caloric Neutral”. Life is Good.

Then I could admit to being an alcholic, because, I am. However, I have a tea-totaling friend and I could pay him some dollars and buy some “Rum Credits”. Thus I am “Alchohol Neutral”…waiter!. Life is Good.

And and then, upon reflection, I realize that I spend an inordinate amount of time on my sailboat reaching hither and yon under the cloth…..shouldn’t I get a “Sailcloth Credit” you know "Air Abuse Neutral". Maybe a bigger sail would get me a bigger credit…..hmmm ..... bigger boat. Life, is real Good.

Well, the problem is those pesky facts get in the way. Despite your good intentions and that warm fuzzy feeling you have from all your “credits” the fact is YOU will be a fat, drunk, sailing a big boat. It is patently clear that you can’t buy Calorie Credits, Rum Credits, or Sailcloth Credits and have any effect on your environs. So how is it that we need to debate the implications of a “Carbon Credit”?

As P. T. Barnum is said to have uttered “There is a sucker born every minute……”
