Like A Condom, The First Amendment Can’t Always Protect You
by Ann Coulter
First of all, I feel so much more confident that the TSA’s nude photos of airline passengers will never be released now that I know the government couldn’t even prevent half a million classified national security documents from being posted on WikiLeaks.
President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder will be getting around to WikiLeaks’ proprietor, Julian Assange, just as soon as they figure out which law the New Black Panthers might have violated by standing outside a polling place with billy clubs.
These legal eagles are either giving the press a lot of disinformation about the WikiLeaks investigation or they are a couple Elmer Fudds who can’t find their own butts without a map.
Since Holder apparently wasn’t watching Fox News a few weeks ago, I’ll repeat myself and save the taxpayers the cost of Holder’s legal assistants having to pore through the federal criminal statutes starting with the A’s.
A U.S. Border Patrol agent was fatally shot after he encountered several suspects in southern Arizona, officials announced Wednesday.
Agent Brian Terry was killed late Tuesday near Rio Rico, Ariz., according to a statement released by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials.
At least four suspects are in custody and another is still being pursued.
We have a war going on, right on our own border, and yet the federal government FAILS to uphold the law. We are fighting a war on the other side of the world against a bunch of 12th century thugs to protect people who can’t, or won’t, stand up against them. Haven’t we lost enough of our sons and daughters in a foreign land? Isn’t it past time we protect our own?
My most heart felt prayers with the family and friends of this gentleman! May God Bless them, and give them strength.
There’s old story out of Texas. Seems a guy cruises thru a stop sign, or whatever, and gets pulled over by a local policeman. Guy hands the cop his driver’s license, insurance verification, plus his concealed carry permit.
“Okay, Mr. Smith,” the cop says, “I see your CCW permit. Are you carrying today?”
“Yes, I am.”
“Well then, better tell me what you got.”
Smith says, “Well, I got a .357 revolver in my inside coat pocket. There’s a 9mm semi-auto in the glove box. And, I’ve got a .22 magnum derringer in my right boot.”
“Okay,” the cop says. “Anything else?”
“Yeah, back in the trunk, there’s an AR15 and a shotgun. That’s about it.”
“Mr. Smith, are you on your way to or from a gun range…?”
“Well then, what are you afraid of…?”
“Not a damn thing…”

Call Reid’s Bluff
Gallup released a poll this morning showing that the American people dislike this 111th Congress more than any Congress ever. Specifically, a full 83% of Americans disapprove of the way Congress is handling its job while only 13% approve. That is the worst approval rating in more than 30 years of tracking congressional job performance.
Why do Americans so despise this Congress? The reckless way it spends other people’s money, for starters. One would have thought that after getting “shellacked” at the polls this November, Congress would have gotten the message. No luck. Majority Leader Harry Reid introduced a $1.27 trillion 1,924 page omnibus spending bill last night that contains 6,000 earmarks worth $8 billion. Oh, and all this has to be approved by midnight Saturday or the government shuts down.
The 23% in favor of civilian trials actually surprises me. This wasn’t an armed robbery at your local 7/11. This was an act of war they are accused of, and as such, should be tried in a military tribunal. If it were up to me, they would have be executed on the spot, but then, I have major issues with people trying to murder me and mine.
Seriously? *shakes head* Well, we know Time is no longer relevant in the real world, so I guess it’s not all that surprising.
With Memphis’ high unemployment rate, this is definitely GOOD news!
Politicians leaving the sinking ship? Let’s just hope it’s not all for show. There are already enough RINOs that need to be dealt with.
Oh, I bet they have a whole lot more than 200.
You can’t make silk out of a sow’s ear, and you can’t force a peace where no peace is possible.
I’m getting more and more suspicious of Nashville’s mayor. Wondering how he ever got elected? Not only does he support criminals, but now he believes he has a right to force immorality on a private CHRISTIAN oriented school? I don’t bloody well think so!
Anyone else find it odd that city zoning laws trumps the care of the homeless? I wonder how many people freeze to death in the frigid Wisconsin winters because churches aren’t allowed to open their doors, and do the job Jesus commanded them to do?
One reason I have lost all interest in the NFL….over sized, over paid children, never truly punished for their crimes, and allowed to return to the game after an occasional brief stint behind bars. No leadership! No real consequences!
Gee, what a shame! The baby murderers can’t find a place to slaughter the innocent! /snark
They want to charge people for driving into their city? Only a radically liberal bunch could ever think up something so utterly ridiculous!
We are so far in debt that our great grandchildren won’t be able to pay it off, even if those weasels did stop spending, and we’re sending $6 MILLION dollars to help Lebanon’s economy? Are they freakin’ kidding me??????
I’m confused. If you don’t train, how are you suppose to be fit? Is the Air Force going P.C.? One of those, ‘don’t wanna make anyone feel bad cuz they aren’t as strong as the rest of the troops? HUH? What? Everyone I knew in the military back when complained about the mandatory PT, but all appreciated it when the need arose. Maybe I’m missing something here?
Democrats must really hate Americans. What other explanation is there for their theft? Forcing people into poverty with their reckless maneuvering? Obviously, they didn’t get the message, and must be reminded, perhaps a bit more forcefully?
