Here's a perfect example of someone's First Amendment rights being trampled and there's not one ACLU zombie in sight.
A Marine veteran whose anti-terrorist and anti-Islam vehicle decals hindered him in visiting the grave of his fallen son at Arlington National Cemetery has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the military order which rebuked his display of the decals.Liberals are fond of lying about the ACLU claiming it's for EVERYONE. They can't name a single example, however, of the ACLU fighting for the 2nd Amendment. Too bad we can't get an ACLU lawyer to sue the ACLU for false advertising. They need to correct the name of the organization. American CERTAIN Liberties Union would be truthful.
Jesse Nieto, a 25-year Marine veteran, served two combat tours in Vietnam. His youngest son, Marc, was one of the seventeen sailors killed in the terrorist bombing of the U.S.S. Cole in October of 2000.
Since 1994 Nieto has been a civilian employee at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. In 2001 he began displaying various decals on his vehicle expressing sentiments such as “Remember the Cole, 12 Oct 2000,” “Islam=Terrorism” and “We Died, They Rejoiced.”
After Nieto refused to remove all allegedly offending decals from his vehicle, the Base Magistrate issued a written order ordering Nieto to remove his vehicle from the base until all decals were removed. The order banned his vehicle from all other federal installations, and reportedly prevented him from driving onto the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.
The Ann Arbor-based Thomas More Law Center filed a federal civil rights lawsuit this week on Nieto’s behalf against the Camp Lejeune Commanding Officer and the Base Magistrate in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. The lawsuit claims that the military’s ban on Nieto’s vehicle decals violates his constitutional rights to freedom of speech and the equal protection of the law.
“The banning of these decals is political correctness run amuck in the military,” charged Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center. “Our troops are being killed by Islamic terrorists, 9/11 was caused by Islamic terrorists, these terrorists want to destroy America, the Islamic countries persecute Christians, and now the military is victimizing a father whose son was killed by Islamic terrorists while serving our nation.”
It is shameful, though, that ANY veteran would be ticketed for practicing his freedom of speech. That the veteran's freedom of speech is underscored by the loss of his son and the message being suppressed is the truth of who killed that son is beyond shameful.

Like any entity that abandons basic quality control, political parties rot from within. It happened to the Democrats long ago, and now has become the case with the Republican Party, which has strayed from its conservative underpinnings.
There are really only four things I have a strong aversion to: unloaded guns, dull knives, banjos, and Republicans in Name Only (RINOs).
RINOs reach across Fedzilla's aisle to cut deals and build consensus with the liberals. Consensus building means compromising values and cutting deals with the socialist prankster punksters whose goal it is to turn America into EuroAmerica.
My specialty is making Fedzilla punks squirm and turn into a puddle of sweat and drool. Therefore, in the spirit of famous butt kickers Generals Chesty Puller and George Patton, I say we launch an attack on all fronts. Uncle Ted hereby declares it is open season on RINOs. No bag limits or permits required. Conservative ideas, arguments and votes are the weapons we will use. Hunt them down and shine a blazing light on these RINO turncoat cockroaches. Zero in the "we the people" crosshairs of your voting assault weapon and aim for the RINO pumpstation. Double tap center mass. Whack em and stack em, track em and hack em, pack em and give em no slack. Let's do to the RINO beasts what we did to the passenger pigeon. Force out of the Republican Party out the subspecies known as RINOs.
Now, go read the rest.

This looks like it could change in a big way. For one thing the Republicans are wallowing in self-pity and backstabbing each other. Doesn't make them very attractive.
Additionally the Republicans are aiming a howitzer at their own feet. Sarah Palin was one of the best things the Republicans have done since REAGAN left office. For gun owners both Bushes were either treating us with neglect or conniving against us. To let whiny cowards go around and tell tales to eager scribblers is a major mistake on the part of the Republicans.
Let's put it out there. She has more going for her than Ron Paul ever will. She has the charisma to kick the teeth out of any one. Look at the Palinmania with the entire MSM trying to club her to death like a baby seal. The Republican party should be bending over and kissing her snow boots and begging her to lead them. Instead they are looking to keep putting up more old white guys who haven't had an original thought, ever. They are going to keep paying money for focus groups and media consultants and ignore the very real reaction of people's guts.
PEOPLE love Sarah Palin. The PRESS loved Barack Obama.
So what does that hold for us? It holds that 2010 could be a continuation of the hemorrhaging of Republican seats. Then some other never was running against Obama in 2012.
By then Obama is going to make Jimmy Carter look good but you aren't going to win against even that piss-poor of a President if you are trying to run John McCain, Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee.
The Republicans can learn from what failed and discard it. They can learn from what worked and run with it. Dump the RINOs. ALL of them, no matter their win/loss record. Get conservative or go broke. Not one of them has the chance that Lieberman took in 2006 by running independent and they won't survive running Democrat.
Run real conservatives and make sure they VOTE conservative on the job.
The American Conservative Party could be taking over in 2012 with THEIR candidate, Sarah Palin.

Despite the boasts from the left over civil war if their Messiah is not handed the Oval Office in the worst case scenario of affirmative action there will be riots BECAUSE he won in the usual places. Don't expect the ringleaders of such riots to face any jail times over that set of crimes.
I hope that I have to update this post to say that I got it wrong.
We'll see what the update brings.
With all due respect to Fits and Lem and Xavier who never gave up hope I hate to admit to being right.
When you spend as long as I have walking around with the Curse of Cassandra as my personal albatross you get used to seeing the train wreck happening long before the train leaves the station. No matter what you do that wreck is going to happen. And no one will believe you when you tell them about it.
Now recall the rest of the prediction.
Obama is going to be known, long before his four years are up, as the worst President in U.S. history. My HOPE is that starting tomorrow Reid and Pelosi start trying to steal this election away from the empty suit. Their power struggle will help make sure this nation isn't too badly damaged before 2012.
There will be no assassination of Obama. That's just horseshit from all those Kennedy idolaters who dream of what never was and never would be.
IF the RNC will finally wake up and smell the coffee they have a chance at making 2010 look like a repeat of 1992. If they keep on ignoring the conservatives, though, they will continue to be a dying party. If you want to win return to conservatism. Whoever rises to the top of the RNC in the coming days needs to have that fact pounded into his head, tattooed to the inside of his eye lids and have it playing 24/7 in his mp3 player. Pandering to illegals, continue to stab the gun owners in the back and hope your big campaign contributors can buy you an election are all Democrat strategies. They don't work for Republicans. Two elections should be more than enough evidence of this.
To everyone else put your national plans on the back burner and work on the local level. From dog catcher on up to governors and get ready for the 2010 races. Encourage your state government to deny the feds control. Emphasize state's rights.
With luck Obama won't get around to putting too many butts in federal robes before the Gruesome Twosome of Pelosi and Reid find themselves returned to the back bench. That will slow the damage Empty Suit can do.
In the New Age circles there have been those who make something out of the Mayan calendar putting a terminus on our present epoch in 2012. That's about the time that Empty Suit comes to the end of his one and only term.
As yet I don't think the two are more than coincidence. YET.
Just food for thought.

No doubt by now millions of people saw the headlines about this Halloween's murder of a 12 year old by someone shooting from inside their house.
What isn't in the headline is that the shooter was a convicted felon. You know. The kind of person who can't legally buy a gun.
Yep, that's right. Can't buy a gun legally.
So how'd he come to have a gun?
Don't expect any of the press who favor misleading stories to ask that question. They are busy writing stories of how the Mexican drug lords are getting their guns from the U.S. Never mind that these guys have full auto weapons that can't be legally imported to the U.S. for civilian sale. They MUST be coming from the U.S. gun culture and not coming into Mexico because of that nation's long-standing history of corruption in law enforcement.
Back to the story here.
Police say the 22-year-old ex-convict told them he'd been robbed and shot in the past.
Well, that truly justifies his response, doesn't it? Had this guy been someone with a job and a life he'd be looking at having everything he ever owned taken away and spending 25 or more years in prison. Since he is a low-life with a record he'll probably be back on the street in time for Thanksgiving.
