Glad the right found something to buzz about.

“President Barack Obama shoots clay targets on the range at Camp David, Md., Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012. (Official White House Photo by Pete Souza),” the caption reads.

Wiki photo w/caption from 27 October 2010. And people wonder why I worry if parts of the movement are stuck on stupid these days. The advantage bloggers brought to the game was that we did our homework. Increasingly, that’s no longer the case.

    “I worry if parts of the movement are stuck on stupid these days.”

    Intriguing. Second time in ten days or so I’ve clicked over from memeorandum and thought, “Oh. Wow. This is reasonable.”

    BTW, even though I voted for Obama twice the first thing I did when the photo came out was photoshop it.

    It’s government work product and in the public domain by statute.

    • Ragspierre says:

      When has Pres. Skeeter let a “statute”…or a court ruling…impede him…???

      Why did the WH try to put the hoo-doo on people with that bullshit “warning”?

    What a disturbing post. Disturbing in the fact that it is true and written on this site.

    Be careful Dan. Glenn Beck will kick you out of Independence, USA if you keep writing like this.

    • Ragspierre says:

      Why soon, your Collective will be keeping Obama and all the other rednecks from playing with their guns, right, moron…???

      How’s that vacant dream looking for ya in the Senate?

      All the lying done on “this site” is by you and your fellow moonbats.

      • Harry White says:

        Get some fiber, grandpa. You’ll feel better.

        • Ragspierre says:

          I feel wonderful!

          And I’m not falling for the “SQUIRREL” bullshit from Pres. Skeeter, who you know TOTALLY “Does skeet shooting all the time”.

          Like he DOES bike riding, or DOES baseball throwing!

          I just think it is HI-larry-ous to punk you trolls out each day you show up here!

          • Harry says:

            I don’t know if he skeet shoots, but he certainly knows how to defeat angry old men and creepy mormons.

            Mission accomplished!

          • Ragspierre says:

            Oh, he managed to defeat all kinds of good people.

            And we both know how: he lies, cheats, steals, and violates the law!

    Emulating New York and California, two deep-blue states with mammoth unfunded pension liabilities, Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel (D) has hectored a $5 billion pension fund into divesting its holdings in companies that manufacture firearms. . . .

    Chicago’s current and retired public employees might wish the city had invested more in both companies. Barack Obama, for whom Emanuel was chief of staff, has become a potent gun salesman because of suspicions that he wants to make gun ownership more difficult. Since he was inaugurated four years ago, there have been 65 million requests for background checks of gun purchasers. Four years ago, the price of Smith & Wesson stock was $2.45. Last week it was $8.76, up 258 percent. Four years ago, the price of Sturm Ruger stock was $6.46. Last week it was $51.09, up 691 percent. The Wall Street Journal reports that even before “a $1.2 billion balloon payment for pensions comes due” in 2015, “Chicago’s pension funds, which are projected to run dry by the end of the decade, are scraping the bottoms of their barrels.”

    See, that is funny BECAUSE that over/under shotgun Pres. Skeeter is using (badly and wrong) is a VERY expensive piece, probably foreign made. A true 1% double-barreled shot gun.

    WITH a muzzle-break, which by some definitions makes it an “assault weapon”.

    HEH!

  5. Ragspierre says:

    Silicon Valley is a major donor to Democrats, and it seems to be moving toward an understanding of the importance of a strong and outward looking America. Historically, cutting edge corporations have supported the rise of American power partly as a way of assuring that U.S. foreign policy and power would support their corporate agendas and help them get fair treatment in a world where foreign corporations enjoyed clear backing from their governments. It’s beginning to look as if Silicon Valley is heading down this well-trodden trail. This suggests a revival of a strong national defense and national greatness lobby in the Democratic Party, especially if we reflect on the degree to which defense spending in the future is likely to intersect with the kinds of products Silicon Valley makes.

    OR…

    the are becoming more conservative…

    and LESS Collectivist as they grow up.

    Huh.

    Yeah, it’s a standard disclaimer. And it’s both so dubious legally and so completely ignored as a practical matter to be a waste of time and pixels.
