Another child sacrifice to the pagan gods of #fairness

Of course. Hard work means nothing if it means you end up having something someone else doesn’t have. Easier for liberals to take YOUR stuff away than make things better for everybody.

20140331-104319.jpgTake these high school baseball families. They thought the bleacher seating sucked – they couldn’t see well enough through the chain link, so they got together and made good things happen

Six years ago, a booster club paid for and installed the seating deck by the Plymouth Wildcats varsity boys’ baseball field because it was hard to see the games through a chain-link fence. Parents also installed a new scoreboard.

See, hard work with fundraisers paid off, they made their little corner of the world better.

Not so fast said the liberals:

Recently, the U.S. Education Department’s Office for Civil Rights received a complaint and determined that the seats must be removed because the facility was no longer equal to the girls’ softball field.

The superintendent said the seats will be stored until they can find a solution that’s fair to everyone.

See? Rather than #fairness meaning get off your asses and make something good happen for the girls team too, screw all of you. Take it out.

All of it.

“The girls had the same opportunity to raise the same amount of money that we did,” Gilbert said.

“This country was built by people who got their hands dirty and worked hard,” he said. “That was the idea we were presenting to our kids as they watched us build this.”

“This was our effort to leave a legacy for the kids, leave the field in better shape than we inherited it,” Minch said.

See the video here.

Lesson for our kids? Hard work and persistence pays off, right up until someone notices, calls you a 1%er, and bends you over.

Democrats and their never ending War on Success own this crap. They’re why “we can’t have nice things”.

How worried is Putin about sanctions?

Not very

bgorrellWhat sanctions?

If Vladimir Putin is worried about the sanctions imposed on his closest allies, he’s hiding it like a poker champ. Even his sanctioned allies have shrugged off or even mocked the measures. Yuri Kovalchuk, chairman of the sanctioned firm Bank Rossiya, claimed that it has benefitted from sanctions as Russians infected with patriotic fervor, including Putin, open new accounts. But despite the cavalier attitude of those in Putin’s inner circle, Russia’s wealthiest have already taken a serious hit.

Ukraine asks for help, and Obama sends…hashtags:

President Obama had great success using social media during his campaigning days, but does that same mindset work for foreign affairs?

“I don’t know what effect this is supposed to have,” said former State Department diplomat James Lewis. “It’s a hashtag. What’s it going to do? For this situation, it’s not a useful tool.”

To get the momentum going on the hashtag, top officials posted their own photos. Among the most notable was the State Department’s chief spokesperson Jen Psaki, who was once in the running for the Obama’s press secretary.

Yeah. That’ll help.

Update: K-9 Bruno’s lungs functioning, surgery successful

Erick Brockway:

The Anaheim PD K9 officer who was shot in the face and lung is on the mend!
Yay pooch!

K-9 Officer Bruno’s miraculous recovery from a gunshot wound last week took another positive turn Friday – when doctors declared that his repaired lung is now working properly.

“It was a very successful surgery,” said Lt. Tim Schmidt. “They took his breathing tube out, and he’s healing exactly they way they want him to.”

Bruno fasted for 12-hours before the early morning surgery at Yorba Regional Animal Hospital.

Surgeons also reattached the bottom portion of his tongue, which will enable him to drink and eat with greater ease.

It’s unclear when he’ll return home with his partner and handler, Officer R.J. Young, wife Rachel, and daughter, Grace, 3-months.

But Bruno probably won’t be returning to work.

Former POW in Vietnam and Naval Aviator, RDML Jeremiah Denton Jr. dies – RIP Sir

Rear Admiral Jeremiah Denton Jr. was a naval aviator who flew missions over Vietnam with VA-75 in an A-6A Intruder.

He was shot down and captured, beginning years of captivity and torture:

201010CV011On July 18, 1965, U.S. Navy Comdr. Jeremiah A. Denton, Jr., was shot down while leading an air attack on a military installation in North Vietnam. Captured by the North Vietnamese that day, he remained a prisoner of war for seven years and seven months, enduring years of solitary confinement and brutal mistreatment.

On May 2, 1966, as part of a propaganda campaign, the North Vietnamese arranged for him to be interviewed for television by a Japanese reporter. Asked about his views on the actions of the U.S. Government, he strongly affirmed his government’s position, in defiance of his captors’ instructions; he prepared himself for a torture session that was sure to follow.

While speaking on camera, he blinked in Morse code the word “T-O-R-T-U-R-E.” Eventually, the videotape was widely circulated and reviewed by U.S. Naval Intelligence. Denton’s one-word report, delivered in Morse code, was the first clear confirmation received by U.S. Intelligence that American POWs were, in fact, being tortured.

He later speculated that the North Vietnamese did not learn of his blinking message until 1974. The taped interview is among the holdings of the Special Media Archives—Records of the Central Intelligence Agency.

Promoted during his captivity, Captain Denton was released on February 12, 1973. After retiring from the U.S. Navy as a rear admiral, he was elected to the U.S. Senate where he served from 1981 until 1987.

From Wapo,

Jeremiah A. Denton Jr., a retired Navy rear admiral and former U.S. senator who survived nearly eight years of captivity in North Vietnamese prisons, and whose public acts of defiance and patriotism came to embody the sacrifices of American POWs in Vietnam, died March 28 at a hospice in Virginia Beach. He was 89.

The cause was complications from a heart ailment, said his son Jim Denton. Adm. Denton was a native of Alabama, where in 1980 he became the state’s first Republican to win election to the Senate since Reconstruction.

This guy, while in captivity, was forced by the NVA to make a couple of propaganda videos. Denton complied, but screwed them over:

In the first, orchestrated by the North Vietnamese as propaganda and broadcast in the United States in 1966, he appeared in his prison uniform and blinked the word “torture” in Morse code — a secret message to U.S. military intelligence for which he later received the Navy Cross.

Watch -

Later in life, from 1981 to 1987 he was a US Senator from Alabama.

Sounds like the movie “Noah” is ready for Cambot and Crow

I haven’t seen it, and I wasn’t likely to ever see it, but the other Erick saw it and it sounds like it’s funny as hell. Not worth actually paying for, but he suggests waiting for it to come to Netflix.

Small sample:

The premise is pretty straight forward. Noah descends from the line of Seth. The serpent in the Garden of Eden shed its snake skin, which had magical properties that flowed from father to son. As Noah’s father was about to pass the magical powers off to Noah, Noah’s father is attacked by Cain’s descendent, killed, and Noah runs away. Cain’s descendent, soon to be King Cain, takes the snake skin unaware of its magical properties.

In flash back we see that Adam and Eve were glow in the dark space aliens who became fully flesh once Eve bit into the fruit.

I am not kidding.

Noah grows up and — herein is a problem — somehow in the barren wasteland in which he lives has found a wife and has three sons. He has a wicked cool dream that convinces him he must seek out his grandfather, Methuselah, who lives in a mountain, because the Creator is going to destroy the planet.

Noah and his family cross a Mad Max line wasteland of rubble, pipes, skulls, and destruction. They save Hermione Granger, but are attacked by Cain’s kinfolk.

Noah and family rush past a mountain of skulls and are attacked by giant rock monsters. The rock monsters hate people. Turns out they are fallen angles who decided to take care of Adam and Eve once the “Creator” cast them out of Eden. To punish them, the Creator covers them in lava making them rock monsters. They protected Cain’s folks until the people turned on them. Only Methuselah with his magical powers and flaming sword could protect the rock monsters from men. The rock monsters are rock like Ents, but behave like the green space aliens in Toy Story. They always look up and sing “the Creator” instead of “the Claw”

I am not kidding.

Read the rest, it’s really funny.

Meanwhile, I’m thinking someone else needs to see Noah first…

These guys -
