“Like us on Facebook!”
A typical footnote on business advertisements, makes me see red; here is another reason to hate Facebook –
502 am PST – Arrgh… Why I’m up at this hour? Don’t ask. But I had logged in and found this item from WordPresss.com News.
(I disabled all links Re: Google, Automattic, Accelerate LGBT etc.) Needed this like I need a root canal without nitrous oxide… If I wasn’t established here, I’d be tempted to got to Blogger or some other site. Where’s my barf bag?

From Yahoo News-
The Regime has achieved a new low in their attitude towards “We the People”.
Reprehensible as their behavior has been with the continued assaults on the Constitution, Agenda 21, border security, and most recently the Bundy Ranch; this asinine ruling by a judge against a widow defies all logic.
BEAVER, Pa. (AP) — A widow was given ample notice before her $280,000 house was sold at a tax auction three years ago over $6.30 in unpaid interest, a Pennsylvania judge has ruled.
The decision last week turned down Eileen Battisti’s request to reverse the September 2011 sale of her home outside Aliquippa in western Pennsylvania.
“I paid everything, and didn’t know about the $6.30,” Battisti said. “For the house to be sold just because of $6.30 is crazy.”
Battisti, who still lives in the house, said Monday that she plans to appeal to Commonwealth Court. That court earlier ordered an evidentiary hearing, which led to last week’s ruling.
Beaver County Common Pleas Judge Gus Kwidis wrote that the county tax claim bureau complied with notification requirements in state law before the auction. She had previously owed other taxes, but at the time of the sale she owed just $235, including other interest and fees.
“There is no doubt that (she) had actual receipt of the notification of the tax upset sale on July 7, 2011, and Aug. 16, 2011,” the judge wrote. “Moreover, on Aug. 12, 2011, a notice of sale was sent by first class mail and was not returned.”
The property sold for about $116,000, and most of that money will be paid to Battisti if further appeals are unsuccessful. An attorney for the purchaser did not return a phone message on Monday.
Joe Askar, Beaver County’s chief solicitor, said the judge got the decision right, based on the law.
“The county never wants to see anybody lose their home, but at the same time the tax sale law, the tax real estate law, doesn’t give a whole lot of room for error, either,” Askar said.
Battisti said her husband handled the paperwork for the property’s taxes before he passed away in 2004.
“It’s bad — she had some hard times, I guess her husband kind of took care of a lot of that stuff,” Askar said. “It seemed that she was having a hard time coping with the loss of her husband — that just made it set in a little more.”
Goodbye to ABC.
ABC News Joins Obama and Bans American Flag Lapel Pins!
ABC NEWS BANS FLAG LAPEL PINS
This is what we get from the present attitudes in Washington.
Barbara Walters said that this was going to hurt ABC bad. And she works for ABC.
YESTERDAY THE BRASS AT ABC NEWS ISSUED ORDERS FORBIDDING REPORTERS TO WEAR LAPEL PIN AMERICAN FLAGS OR OTHER PATRIOTIC INSIGNIA.
THEIR REASONING WAS THAT ABC SHOULD REMAIN NEUTRAL ABOUT ‘CAUSES’.
SINCE WHEN IS PATRIOTISM TO BE DISCOURAGED?
I URGE YOU TO BOYCOTT ABC AND ITS SPONSORS AND AFFILIATES.
WE ARE SLOWLY LOSING EVERYTHING OUR COUNTRY STANDS FOR AND EVERYTHING OUR MEN AND WOMEN FOUGHT AND DIED TO PRESERVE!
PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO AS MANY AS YOU CAN.

Patriot Update had an article I wanted to read:
Emotional: Passengers Discover They’re Escorting A Fallen Soldier Home Sunday, November 3, 2013
I got this popup that greyed out the page:
Sometimes I’m so dismayed that I want to wash my hands of the whole affair, but I can’t emulate Pontius Pilate. What is it about Constitutionally ineligible that America doesn’t get? Cruz was born in Canada, and BOTH parents must have been (at least) naturalized, if not naturally born U.S. citizens at the time of his birth.
Other combinations, (visit the page) include Mr. West, which, while indeed a dream candidate, has had no interest in pursuing either the V.P. or Presidential nomination. Either a large percentage of our population are simply ignoring the facts, or suffer from Down’s syndrome. I do wish Cruz was eligible; however, you can’t obey the Constitution some of the time, and trash it the rest of the time. What a bunch of flea-brains!!

T-shirt seller clashes with DHS, NSA
You might not think National Security Agency (NSA) spying is all that funny — and apparently neither do they.
Public Citizen, a public interest nonprofit, has sued the NSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) in response to letters the agencies sent in 2011 asking the manufacturer of parodied national security trinkets to stop production.
Minnesota small business owner Dan McCall has been making a buck ridiculing federal spies.
“Department of Homeland Stupidity” is emblazoned on T-shirts, mugs, hats, bumper stickers and other items. “The NSA: The only part of the government that actually listens” is featured on others. .
McCall has sold the merchandise on his website LibertyManiacs.com for 10 years, but in 2011 the NSA and DHS hit the manufacturer, Zazzle.com, with cease-and-desist letters warning that the parodies violate federal law.
NSA’s argument? The products are in violation of the National Security Agency Act of 1959, which includes a broad ban on the use of the words National Security Agency, the letters “NSA,” or “any colorable imitation of such words,” on any product which is “in a manner reasonably calculated to convey the impression that such use is approved, endorsed, or authorized by the National Security Agency,” without the express permission of the agency itself.
In other words, a coffee mug decorated with a parodied NSA seal along with a slogan such as “Peeping While You’re Sleeping” might be mistaken for official federal government gear.
The NSA wrote to Zazzle, warning the government would take “appropriate legal action to protect its rights,” Public Citizen attorney Paul Alan Levy reported in a blog post on the case.
“English law uses an analogy” for trademark issues, Levy told The Daily Caller News Foundation, “of a moron in a rush. I would say even a moron in a rush would not think that these seals as parodied by my client were sponsored by the NSA or the DHS.”
DHS took a slightly different tack and sent an email to the manufacturer threatening criminal prosecution, Levy told TheDCNF. It is a crime to “mutilate or alter the seal of any department or agency of the United States” according to federal law, and the DHS believes McCall’s parody products qualify.
DHS warned Zazzle in 2011 that using its seal is “punishable by fines and / or imprisonment,” Levy wrote this week on his blog. The agency then provided a link to a general search of the Zazzle web site linking to every product featuring a DHS parody.
And while we’re on the subject of stupidity…

Don’t Hit The Car In Front Of You!
exposing the lunacy of liberalism one post at a time
By Rat on August 17, 2013
A newly erected sign just outside Washington D.C. reads: “Don’t Hit the Car in Front of You.” The $13K sign, erected by the Arlington, VA Police Department, has become a bit controversial due to its cost and the “DUH” aspect.
While the sign was placed in one of the highest accident areas in the county for the purpose of reminding drivers to pay attention, still – nobody runs into the car in front of them on purpose. At least I hope not.
Anyway, this prompted me to go in search of other obvious, or otherwise humorous signs.
So that’s why I always feel like I’m about to drown whenever I try to swim underwater.
So, does that mean if it’s out of stock you don’t got it?
Besides, how would you get back out?
Just curious. Who are you going after for the fine?
Birth certificate or no birth certificate, at least we can all agree on this, right?
Things didn’t end well the last time I tried to ride my bike downhill this way.
I beg to differ.
So, does that mean if it’s presently closed, it’s not open?
I’ve always wanted to tour a peanut manufacturing plant.
I never liked ground-level balconies anyway.
Thanks for the warning. Although, I think I’d move “BRIDGE IS OUT AHEAD” to the top.
Wait – this isn’t a see-through hill?
If I lived near this school, I’d just drive 25 MPH all the time.
No thanks, I think I’ll just go with the grilled chicken sandwich.
Obviously, this guy doesn’t have a meth lab. By the looks of things, I don’t think he ever has.
Okay, back to the real world.
Nancy’s approval notwithstanding, Ronald would roll over in his grave. “Stuck on stupid”, doesn’t begin to properly address this travesty. The studio responsible for this ought to go ******* broke.
