It Says You're a Winner, but its Just a Misprint.

A Florida lotto winner has been denied the jackpot of a scratch-off ticket, because the state claims that the scratch-off ticket is a misprint. When a business commits what is called false advertising the government threatens that business even if it is a honest mistake, but when they do it is "It says you're a winner, but its just a misprint so we won't pay you the $500,000 jackpot."

Judge Joe Brown on Stolen Phone.

A few weeks ago a wrote my last Follow Up to Thoughts on the Next-Generation iPhone Situation, at the time this episode of Judge Joe Brown was in the back of my head and since on a whim I decided to look for episodes of Judge Joe Brown and this was on the top of the list so I am posting this here for my readers. Judge Joe Brown is the only court show, like this anyway, that I watch any more, most of the others either feel to liberal to me or have progressive rulings. This episode is classic Judge Joe and I am sure you will enjoy.

Capitalism is Matter and Socialism is Antimatter

Most have heard the phrase "Men are from Mars, and Women are from Venus." well I think I have a new one, "Capitalism is Matter and Socialism is Antimatter, and the two can be not mixed." This was inspired by a recent news item on why we exist, I will have something on that else where, but this is about how Capitalism is Matter and Socialism is Antimatter, and why the two can be not mixed.

The Founders Were Fabulous

It seems that the left and progressives want to say and diminish the importance of the Founding Fathers. With the rise of the Tea Parties and the resurgence of the founding history of America the left and progressives have redoubled their offensive against this history and facts.

Teacher Sues for Right to Flunk Her Students.

A Teacher Sues an East Baton Rouge, La, school for the right to flunk her students. With the left complaining about US students scores it seems they will do anything to get them up, even prevent teachers from flunking their students. With the dismal state our Government Schools are in this only makes it worse now parents have to ask are their children really passing or is the Government School just giving them a pass. With the Progressives more interested in teaching our children socialism and the wonders of men like Karl Marx, Joseph Stalin, Vladimir Lenin, Mao Zedong, Hugo Chávez, Fidel Castro and his brother, and Che Guevara it is amazing we still can do things like put men in to space, though that won't last much longer now.

As has been done in other countries they realize that they will best gain their power if they teach the next generation to love them, that the need the government to protect them, then they will have their power and a people who will not stand up to them. The Progressives despise at the idea of high standards is yet another reason for our nations problems.

Glenn Beck with Legal Immigrants.

Glenn Beck tonight had a group of Legal Immigrants who came to America through the legal way, and as I expected they said what Arizona is doing is right and have a problem with the Pro-Illegal Immigrant left. As well as the Illegal Immigrants demanding special treatment.

America is not a racist or anti-immigrant country, what Americans want is for Immigrants to come here legally.

We are a Republic built on the rule of law, enforce the laws that are on the books that is what Americans want.

Solomon.

Tonight Glenn Beck with Legal Immigrants.

In less then a hour Glenn Beck will be on with a group of Legal Immigrants who came to America through the legal way. I expect them for the most part to say what Arizona is doing is right and they themselves are upset at the Illegal Immigrants demanding special treatment.

I will have my full opinion after six.

Some belated Earth Day & Hour Humor.

Before The 1/2 Hour News Hour was canceled due to the overly critical response from the left in the media, saying it wasn't funny. I wasn't funny for them because it was like looking at a mirror while people laugh at there outrageous behavior.

Any way these three clips are from the sketch Guy White: Closet Conservative, and they are about environmentalism and global warming. I wish I remembered the last one on Earth Day I have a couple of old tires I could have burned for Earth Day!

America and Our Rights.

A few months ago I watched an interview Bill O'Reilly did with Steward Rhodes, founder of the Oathkeepers, see the 1st video below, and became annoyed with O'Reilly as seems to be a pattern in the last year. O'Reilly doesn't seem to realize just how dangerous his attitude, the people they were disarming were the LAW-ABIDING citizens NOT the thugs running around acting like warlords in a third world country. I just don't get O'Reilly when Katrina first happened he claimed to have a revelation how gun liberal control and regulations don't work, but now its alright, those thugs were/are predators we all know or have repeated the joke to a gun control person "Put up a big Gun Free zone sign for all to see at your home, and see what happens." See the video below from the 1/2 Hour News Hour on how liberals think it works.

So why am I doing this now after Glenn Beck showed the video clip of the old woman in New Orleans was roughed up to take her gun, I decided to find that clip, but I found something even better or worse depending on one's point of view, on more of the people the authorities took legal guns from not caring about their rights. See the NRA: The Untold Story of Gun Confiscation After Katrina video below. It brings to mind a common defense during the Nuremberg Trials "I was only fallowing orders" that 'defense' has been declared illegitimate as a defense to crimes committed by civilian and military personnel when ordered to by their leaders.

So if Obama was to use the current incident to order the confiscation of guns from the public, which would clearly be unconstitutional, when the Supreme Court declared it so all individuals who participated in that action would be vulnerable to civil and criminal penalties.

Also Bill O'Reilly a few weeks ago on Lt. Col. Terrence Lakin and another soldier with a facebook page supporting the Tea Party basically said that soldiers should just follow your orders and don't question them.

So again I am left asking Bill O'Reilly a question he will never answer, All the Oathkeepers are saying is they will not follow unconstitutional orders, so why do you want them to follow unconstitutional orders if they are given them. Unfortunately Bill O'Reilly won't answer my question.

This clips from the 1/2 Hour News Hour is one of my favorites, its sad that that series was ended due to the overly critical response from the left in the media.

Some New Things I am Doing here.

I wanted to post something on some new things I am doing and going to do here on this blog.

First, in pages I have added an Index of all of my posts categorized by labels, so if you want to find a particular post on Bill O'Rilly you just go down to the Bill O'Rilly group and look for the title of the post you are looking for. Also New posts will be identified by a red new like this, New !!

Example of the Index Page looks like this,

Gun Control

   1. Critics Want to Ground Eddie the Eagle - New !!
   2. Good news for America and Gun Ownership.
   3. NERF guns considered real firearms
   4. Woman armed with shotgun blasts 'crazed' home intruder.

Second, I have added a new label category Video/Music Clip, this will allow you to find any post with a music, sound, or video clip in it easier then before. I Will also be adding a Political Cartoons label category latter as well.

Third, I will probably move somethings around to make somethings more convenient then before.

I will post more on what I am going to do latter.

Times Square Car Bomb NOT Terrorism.

Warning in the full page I am including a piture of Holocaust Victims in the full page of this.

This morning I had to listen to Secretary Napolitano try to evade admitting the Times Square SUV Bomb  was terrorism, vindicating my post The Times Square Bomb Plot yesterday. And while I was listening to this I remembered what this administration wanted to call terrorist attacks, Man Caused Disasters, you know lets apply that label to a few well known events like, the Holocaust is now a Man Caused Disaster, the Massacre at Jonestown by Jim Jones now a Man Caused Disaster, the Stalinist Gulags and death camps are Man Caused Disasters, Pol Pot's crimes are Man Caused Disasters, Che Guevara and Castro's actions in Cuba are Man Caused Disasters, and finally the Man the Obama administration loves Mao Zedong who's actions caused the deaths of over Sixty Million Chinese was JUST a Man Caused Disaster.

You know when you think about it Man Caused Disaster just seems to sanitize what these actions really were, Evil, Inhuman, Cruel, Terroristic, Crimes Against Humanity that should always be remembered for what they are, EVIL!

Watch it below,


Of course now the regime realizes the people are having a problem with their avoidance of the word Terrorism, and are now using it.
Like I said before I don't care if its Neo Nazis, Black Panthers, the Weather Underground, Al Qaeda, Aliens from Alpha Centauri, or some nut with too much time on his hands, its Terrorism, its a tactic intended to cause terror so you should have no problem using it.

Also I want to post this video of one of the street vendors form Times Square;


Solomon.

P.S. I want to post the Green Lanterns oath from the comic books, something about it always seems to be inspirational when I read it,
"In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight.
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power...
Green Lantern's Light!"


The BP Oil Derrick Violations.

I have heard a few people and groups talking about violations of the BP Oil Derrick that exploded and sank on April 20th, well I looked somethings up and found out that the Derrick was inspected in February, March and on April 1 that turned up no violations at the Deepwater Horizon. You can find the original AP report here.

While trying to find a list of the Violations I found these, the list and information comes from Ordons News;
MMS Records Show BP Has Previous Deepwater Violations;

"MMS slapped BP with $41,000 in fines in October 2007 after a series of violations related to a near-blowout five years earlier. In November 2002, the Ocean King rig, operated by Diamond Offshore Drilling, in the Gulf had to evacuate all 65 of its workers for nearly two days after operators detected a dangerous rise in gas pressure. The rig, which had been drilling at a depth of more than 5,000 feet, didn't resume work for nearly a week, according to the MMS report."
"Unlike last week's disaster, workers were able to keep the well from leaking by using cement and mud to plug the well. The same subcontractor, Diamond Offshore, was also used when BP was fined $25,000 in 2004 for bypassing a gas detection system while drilling. A BP spokesman in London says the company still uses Diamond Offshore as a contractor."




"In the 2002 incident, the MMS said that BP and Diamond Offshore were unaware that some of the key safety procedures they used to initially stop the dangerous rise in pressure could have contributed to a blowout. The MMS cited BP for what it called "no formal procedures" and "no written guidelines" to follow in case of an emergency. MMS also cited BP and contract workers in the incident for what they said was a "lack of knowledge of the system, and lack of pre-event planning and procedures."

"In separate incidents, BP was also fined $75,000 in 2003 for not having adequate water pressure on one rig's fire protection system as well as another $80,000 fine for bypassing safety alarms that could have indicated dangerously high pressure, similar to what caused the near-blowout in 2002, according to MMS data."

"Fines for serious incidents, like blowouts, can often total millions of dollars. In 2008, Pogo Producing Company was fined more than a half million dollars for a November 2006 blowout. In that incident, oil was blown out of the flare boom and covered the rig in crude, leaving an oil slick 16 miles long and close to a mile wide."

Also the rig had a couple of safety awards;
"Ironically, MMS recognized BP in 2009 and 2010 as a finalist for "outstanding safety and pollution prevention" in an industry "SAFE" award ceremony scheduled next month. MMS figures show OCS drilling operators paid about $919,000 in fines for safety violations in 2009, down from $2.2 million in 2008 and $3.1 million in 2007, when record oil prices led to higher demand for rigs and drilling workers. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, many of those employees received inadequate training before working offshore on a oil drilling platform."

As you can see the serious violations are somewhat easily found but the others aren't, I have heard there are almost 400 violations, but I can't find a full list and I suspect that if I found the full list most of those violations might be silly ones such as a loose toilet site that hardly seem as serious as the others.

Now We Have A Bomb at the Pittsburgh Marathon. Updated.

 Update 5/2/2010 2:05 PM, Now this is supposedly just a bomb scare, more to come when available.

Now we have a bomb at the Pittsburgh Marathon, I said it before and say it again this does not feel right, I have this vibe that is telling me this is no coincidence, the Suicidal College Student Causes NYC Subway Terror Scare, Police Say, Investigators Pursuing 'All the Leads' in Times Square Bomb Plot, and now this Pittsburgh Marathon Course Altered by Bomb Scare just doesn't feel like coincidences. We will hopefully know more soon.

Solomon.

P.S. I hope I might be wrong on this feeling, but something just doesn't feel right about all this.

The Times Square Bomb Plot

I want to start off with Secretary of Homeland Security Napolitano's words this morning, "It could be an act of terrorism," it could be!? You don't put a crude car bomb of propane, gasoline and fireworks in the heart of Times Square on a busy Saturday evening for the heck of it, you do it to maim, kill, and scare the populace.
And I don't care if its Neo Nazis, Black Panthers, the Weather Underground, Al Qaeda, or some nut with too much time on his hands, its Terrorism.

Their intent was clear when they drove that SUV filled with explosive material in the heart of NYC in Times Square, they wanted to injure, kill, and spread fear to the people of New Your City and America.
Its only by the grace of God that the bomb malfunction, because if it hadn't right now we would be looking at a scene out of the Middle East in NYC.

We need to thank God and all those who stopped that bomb from going off.

Solomon.

For more on this you should go to the following links,
At FoxNews.com, Investigators Pursuing 'All the Leads' in Times Square Bomb Plot,
At NYTimes.com, U.S. Joins Search for Times Sq. Suspect, & T-Shirt Vendor Takes On New Persona: Reluctant Hero of Times Square.

First Cyanide and Now a Car Bomb in Times Square, NYC.

A few days ago I read this story on foxnews.com, Suicidal College Student Causes NYC Subway Terror Scare, Police Say, and now as I write this post it is confirmed that an Incendiary Device has been found in a car in Times Square in NYC Car Bomb, New York City Police Close Times Square for Possible Car Bomb, updated link to FoxNews.com, New York City Police Close Times Square for Apparent Car Bomb, this whole thing stinks first some Suicidal College Student manages to get in the NYC Subways with a quart container full of sodium cyanide pellets, five highway flares and two bottles of water, if he wanted to kill himself you don't need that much to do the job, and there are two cases of possible terrorism by cyanide, in 1995 a device was discovered in a restroom in the Kayabacho Tokyo subway station consisting of bags of sodium cyanide and sulfuric acid with a remote controlled motor to rupture them in what was believed to be an attempt to produce toxic amounts of hydrogen cyanide gas by the Aum Shinrikyo cult, see more on that here, and the in 2003, Al Qaeda reportedly planned to release cyanide gas into the New York City Subway system, the attack was reportedly aborted because there would not be enough casualties, read more here.

And now we have a car bomb in Times Square, NYC, which I will do more on when we have more information. Its possible that these cases are unconnected, but I just don't like the vibe I am getting from all of this. To me it doesn't feel like this is all a coincidence, first someone dressed in a hard hat, safety vest and boots deep inside the tunnel under the East River with a quart container full of sodium cyanide pellets, five highway flares and two bottles of water Friday morning, 4/30/2010, and tonight, on a Saturday night in Times Square, someone decides to place a car bomb there, something just doesn't feel right to me. 

Solomon.

P.S. I know technically its one case of 'actual' possible terrorism by cyanide, but Al Qaeda counts in a way since they would love to destroy our way of life. And a terrorist attack during the morning rush in the subway would do a hell of a lot of damage, just as a car bomb going of in Times Square would.

Defending Capitalism: Flea Markets

Defending Capitalism: Flea Markets

We all know them, Flea Markets, whether its clean, dusty, outdoors, indoors, or a combination of those. Well yesterday while doing some work someone I know, who is a retired union worker this will be important a little latter, said that only Flea Brains go to Flea Markets, of course this wasn't just some jest he was serious. My response "Why? Flea Markets are the perfect example of why capitalism works, you take your goods there if someone wants them they well buy them or negotiate over the price until both sides are happy." he really didn't have much to say after that. But I wanted to continue the defense of Flea Markets here.

Flea Markets our bazaars are the perfect example of why capitalism, you take your goods there if someone wants them they well buy them or negotiate over the price until both sides are happy. Now there is more to most flea markets then that and there is the more dubious side such as the bootleg & knockoff items but most reputable establishments prohibit that as well as checks out the vendors from time to time just to check that no one is selling those items. As some one who has sold at Flea Markets before, I also had my own permanent space for several years here, I can tell you personally that there is more then people selling inexpensive or secondhand goods you can find new and used items of all prices and all kinds, from fruits and vegetables to movies, video games, collectibles, and antiques, a perfect example of what happens when government isn't involved in capitalism, no price controls and no mandates to the sellers.
You are free both buyer & seller to negotiate over the price of things, now there are likely to be someone who will point out that when you buy certain items at a flea market you are taking a risk that it might not work, electronics for example, let me give you some simple advice, Caveat Emptor, let the buyer beware! Its very simple first if the person is unwilling, or unable, to show you that the good works right there then you don't buy it! We have all made that mistake once, most vendors at a flea market, especially those in a more permanent stall, are quite willing to show you that something works or guaranties that if it does not they will exchange it for another item in their store, because it means a possible sale. Even those in the what are typically known as Daily Rental spots are there consistently.

Flea Markets are just another unappreciated area of American Capitalism.

By Solomon.

P.S. I was going to cover the union point in the main body of this post but decided against it, so I am putting it here, the retired union worker, who I will call Union from now on, is ardently Union nothing the Unions do is bad, the only reason Americans don't like unions is due to propaganda by businesses, those are his words by the way. Despite the fact that most businesses in America are small businesses with fewer then a hundred employees, its propaganda by those businesses and people like Joe the Plumber that has people disliking the unions, Yeah Right! People are tired of the same Union tactics and arguments they see every day.

Now as to another point on unions I want to make quickly, I personally have never liked unions and its not what you might be thinking, not because I am a conservative, southerner, or otherwise, Its because of who the original founders of the Unions were, Anarchists, as in no government at all, and Marxists, not a foundation I would like to build something on.
