Obama’s Malmedy

You stand them up, supply them with cash and weapons, and declare them as your allies . . . you own them.

Rebels settle scores in Libyan capital

The killings were pitiless.

They had taken place at a makeshift hospital, in a tent marked clearly with the symbols of the Islamic Crescent. Some of the dead were on stretchers, attached to intravenous drips. Some were on the back of an ambulance that had been shot at. A few were on the ground, seemingly attempting to crawl to safety when the bullets came.

Around 30 men lay decomposing in the heat. Many of them had their hands tied behind their back, either with plastic handcuffs or ropes. One had a scarf stuffed into his mouth. Almost all of the victims were black men. Their bodies had been dumped near the scene of two of the fierce battles between rebel and regime forces in Tripoli.

Obama said we went into Libya to protect civilians. It all turned out to be a big lie. What we got is up to our neck complicity in brutal, cold blooded war crimes committed by our “rebel allies”. If we can’t control their savage “Allahu Akbar” asses, we have no business whatsoever slathering them with cash, weapons, arstrikes, and formal diplomatic recognition.

Crazy Dayton Caves

Gee, apparently we can live within our means without raising taxes after all. The stupid part is that Governor Lunatic accepted the GOP proposal that they submitted before the shutdown even started. What a waste of two weeks. At least now, maybe Minnesotans will soon be able to legally fish and buy beer again.

Dayton Agrees to Republican Budget to End Minnesota Shutdown

Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton and Republican leaders went behind closed doors at 2 p.m. Thursday to discuss a budget proposal with additional conditions that could end the state government shutdown. The trio emerged shortly after 5 p.m. to announce a “framework agreement” has been reached.

The meeting began after the governor sent a letter Thursday morning to House Speaker Kurt Zellers and Senate Majority Leader Amy Koch, saying he “reluctantly” agrees to accept the Republican budget proposal from June 30 if it will end the government shutdown.

Of course, the Republicans didn’t get everything they wanted and they still ended up spending more than their budget limit. But what are you going to do when the Governor, who has mental health issues, is willing to shut down the entire state to satisfy his obsession with raising taxes? And we still have to deal with Crazy Dayton for another 2 1/2 years, lucky us.

Anyway, now that this unfortunate episode is almost behind us, we can move on to more important things, like getting a new Vikings stadium approved. And I swear, If Dayton gets in the way of a new stadium and we end up losing professional football in Minnesota . . . well, he’d better have a real good hiding place.

/and remember, in the land of what might have been, if it weren’t for asshole spoiler little Tom Horner, we would have had a Republican governor to go along with the Republican legislature and Minnesota’s fiscal house would already be in order, without all of Dayton’s drama queen bull[expletive deleted]

World’s Ugliest Dog I Am

And the 2011 winner is . . . Yoda!

Yoda is world’s ugliest dog

Yoda’s short tufts of hair, protruding tongue, and long, seemingly hairless legs were enough to earn it the World’s Ugliest Dog title at a Northern California fair.

The 14-year-old Chinese crested and Chihuahua mix won the honour at the annual contest at the Sonoma Marin Fair.

Owner Terry Schumacher of Hanford, California, says the 2lb (900-gram) dog has come a long way since she was found abandoned behind an apartment building. Ms Schumacher says she first thought the pooch was a rat.
