Disabled Vet Charged With First-Degree Murder for Shooting Masked Holdup Man–Six Times–at Drugstore

Now, I know my readers are very intelligent and have minds of their own. So, I will report and you decide. This report, although posted by CNS News, was reported by the AP. So let’s all be Uncooperative Readers and read between the lines on this one, shall we?

From CNS News:

Oklahoma City – Confronted by two holdup men, pharmacist Jerome Ersland pulled a gun, shot one of them in the head and chased the other away.
Then, in a scene recorded by the drugstore’s security camera, he went behind the counter, got another gun, and pumped five more bullets into the wounded teenager as he lay on the floor.

Now Ersland has been charged with first-degree murder in a case that has stirred a furious debate over vigilante justice and self-defense and turned the pharmacist into something of a folk hero.

Know that this is an ongoing saga and I will be following it as it evolves.

Truckers say new regs won’t jam borders

From USA Today:

BURLINGTON, Vt. — Americans returning from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda and parts of the Caribbean will need more than a driver’s license to get back into the USA beginning Monday — and efforts are underway to prevent that from turning into a truck backlog at the borders.

Commercial truckers in this border state, home of one of the nation’s busiest border crossings, are among those who will be affected by the more stringent documentation requirements, the latest in a series of anti-terrorism efforts put in place after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks on New York City and Washington, D.C. Their imposition fulfills one of the key recommendations of the 9/11 Commission, a blue-ribbon panel of experts convened after the attacks.

Jam that border, turn the illegals back, where’s the fence? No one in this Great land that we call The United States of America has been asked to sacrifice anything for the cause of freedom. Exception: our armed servicemen and women and their families.
My President Bush; which I voted for two times, told the citizens after 911 to “go out and spend money”, so the economy would not collapse. How is that working out for us? HuH???
Suck it up people. When Brian and I went to Alaska, we were totally prepared to wait. As a matter of fact, we were told to pull over to be inspected because we admitted to having firearms in our LandRover. They looked under our seats, glanced at our passports and sent us on our merry way. WE COULD HAVE HAD BOMBS IN OUR EQUIPMENT WHICH WAS PILED ON TOP OF OUR LOCK BOXES BEHIND OUR SEATS!!! OR EVEN IN OUR LOCK BOXES!!
But no one would ever have know, because they didn’t LOOOOOK.
We will be hit again. Where are your Victory Gardens, where is your stock pile of food? Buy some ammo instead of that big screen TV. Sacrifice something for freedom without being asked, I know you can do it, your an American.

Obamas’ Date Night in New York City Draws Criticism

Ok, let’s get our heads wrapped around this one and break it down.

From Fox News:

His public schedule listed no official events, so President Obama had plenty of time to devote to being a weekend dad and spouse.

The president and first lady Michelle Obama watched daughter Malia’s soccer game for an hour Saturday morning in the Palisades neighborhood, a short drive from the White House.

For the evening, the first couple jetted to New York City for date night. A Broadway show and probably dinner were on tap.

The White House refused to say how much the trip was costing taxpayers.

I can just hear everyone screaming, libs and moderates alike. What is wrong with you? Doesn’t he and his family deserve a break and to have some fun. Yes, yes they do. But not at the expense of the public. When past president’s wanted a break, they either went back home, yes they all have homes. The White House is only temporary. Or they went to Camp David. Do you all remember what Camp David is? Do ya’all remember what Camp David was created for. Not what it’s used for now, but it’s original intent.

From Wikipedia:

Naval Support Facility Thurmont, popularly known as Camp David, is a mountain based military camp in Frederick County, Maryland used as a country retreat and for high alert protection of the President of the United States and his guests.

First known as Hi-Catoctin, Camp David was originally built as a camp for federal government agents and their families, by the WPA, starting in 1935, opening in 1938.[1] In 1942 it was converted to a presidential retreat by President Franklin D. Roosevelt and renamed U.S.S. Shangri-La. Camp David received its present name from Dwight Eisenhower, in honor of his grandson, Dwight David Eisenhower II

It is a retreat people! For the President. Alright, three deep breaths.
No other sitting President has ever gone to these lengths to “have a good time”. Between all the parties he and his wife have thrown, the time Not spent at the White House, and now this, I can proudly say, I did Not Vote for the superficial, narcicist that is my President.

If my readers can find an example of a 20th century President behaving this way, please comment. This is an example of “city mouse” meets “country mouse”, unfortunately we elected a spoiled brat “city mouse” into the highest office in the land. Oh and by the by the last “city mouse” President we elected built Camp David. AAAAAAGHHHHH!!!

New Pentagon policy adds poignancy to Memorial Day

To all of our brave men and women in uniform, past and present, and to all of their family members, I say thank you for your service.

From The Christian Science Monitor:

It is 1 a.m. and nearly dark on the flight line but for the spray of pinkish light that shines at the open door of a cargo plane.

The flag-covered box inside looks like every other one that has come through here. But the family standing in the plane’s shadows soon recognizes it as their box. It carries the remains of 1st Lt. Roslyn ‘Roz’ Schulte, the spirited young Air Force officer who showed such promise, killed by a roadside bomb in Afghanistan Wednesday. As the box is taken to a waiting truck, the family quietly mourns, grateful at least to be here.

Until recently, the Schultes could never have come. Nor could they have invited the media to share their daughter’s sacrifice with a grateful nation. Six weeks ago, Defense Secretary Robert Gates overturned a Gulf War-era policy that forbade families and the media from witnessing the return of America’s war dead. The elder President Bush instituted the ban in the belief that pictures of casualties would turn public opinion against the war effort.

Clay Aiken Apologizes For Blasting ‘Idol’ Runner-up Adam Lambert

I just had an extensive discussion with the Uncooperative Radio Show host; MY Husband Brian; about the whole “American Idol” “crap”. He thinks “that the average Joe” should not have a say in who wins. He thinks those that want to “sign” serious talent should be the judge. And then sign up the winner.
aughhhghghghgh!!!!! Oh wait, too logical. And Now there is this:

From Fox News:

NEW YORK — Clay Aiken says blood didn’t truly pour forth from his ears when he heard runner-up Adam Lambert sing “Ring of Fire” — and hey, he’s sorry for his “colorful choice of words.”

The former Idol contestant writes in a blog on his Web site dated Friday that “I obviously meant it as a colorful statement to imply that I did not enjoy what I heard.” He also says he didn’t mean it as “a ‘slam’ on Adam as a person.

My best friend and my daughter are performers in their own rights, one sings and the other dances. They both watch this “what I, Susan Frances Bonner, call “crap TV”, and they are starting to hate this show. Ok, whaat the helllll. Yeaeeeeee. Wake up people, we had “Tne Gong Show” when we growing up. MUCH BETTER.

Beer tax on tap for health care?

My elected cockroach from Montana is jumping right in with both feet, legs and ass. Yippee!!

From The Bellingham Herald:

Lawmakers are looking at an extensive list of spending cuts and tax increases, including a new levy on the value of job-based health insurance. The latter proposal seems to be gaining ground. It could lead to higher income taxes for some people with particularly generous job-based health care.

Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., said no decisions were made, but he will use the feedback to shape legislation he intends to introduce in the next few weeks. The committee has a critical role to play in the health care overhaul, since it writes tax law and oversees the government’s giant medical insurance programs. Baucus wants to write a bipartisan bill, a goal for President Barack Obama.

I just blogged on all the “sin” taxes we already pay. If you read on you will see that there is no end to what they are proposing to tax. Nooooo, endddd…..

Is the American Idol Finale Red State vs. Blue State?

It is true what the Uncooperative Radio show host and my husband has always said; “there is politics in every aspect of our lives.” Now, this is a good example of how everything can be “made” to be political. I’ll let you read and you decide.

From NewsBusters:

The Drudge Report picked up on the New York Daily News pitching tonight’s American Idol finale on Fox as a red state vs. blue state battle between Kris Allen of Arkansas and Adam Lambert of California. (As for just how blue Lambert can go, see the Best Week Ever page connected to VH-1, where Lambert’s entire face is blue, and his antics are “blue” as well.)

Media outlets like Entertainment Weekly have hinted at Lambert’s “flamboyant” appearance — and rooted for him because of it — but will Fox be able to handle Lambert in full shock-jock mode? On a show that’s been seen as family-friendly?

We will find out tonight if blue or red won. We know who won this last election don’t we?
