He’s In The Jailhouse Now

February 11, 2016 By: Juanita Jean Category: Uncategorized

Well, old Cliven Bundy wasn’t such a prissy panted gun totin’ sumbitch when he got off the airplane in Portland, Oregon.

Cliven Bundy, the Nevada rancher whose sons seized an Eastern Oregon wildlife refuge last month, is being held in Multnomah County Jail after arriving at Portland International Airport tonight.

The FBI detained Bundy, 74, and took him to the jail on a U.S. marshal’s hold, according to the Multnomah County Jail’s booking website. He was booked at 10:54 pm.

Charges have not yet been announced. The Oregonian’s Les Zaitz reports on Twitter that Bundy was arrested “on federal charges for the 2014 standoff in Nevada with federal agents.”

Why am I never around to do a standing ovation when these jerks put their tails between their legs and mosey on home?

Thanks to everybody for the heads up.

Oh Dallas

Dallas, Texas, is worried about their image.

‘Bout time, right?

Their city council voted 8-7 to ban an Erotic Convention in Dallas.

The city of Dallas voted on Wednesday to ban an erotica expo featuring porn stars, sex toy sales and a whipping dungeon from a city-owned convention center, with event opponents saying it could taint the city’s image.

This same event was help in Dallas in 2015 with absolutely no incidents and by incidents, I mean no guns were accidentally discharged.

Dallas Police Chief David Brown told the council that undercover officers saw no crimes committed at last year’s event, and there was no reported spike in prostitution or violations of the state’s obscenity laws.

“I do not believe this event is good for our city’s brand,” Rawlings said. “This is a business that participates in the commerce of sex, pure and simple.”

The center’s namesake, former U.S. Senator Kay Bailey Hutchinson, was sitting among expo opponents in the crowd and did not speak at the meeting.

So, if Dallas wants to keep it’s reputation as a stuffy, rightwing, holier than thou mecca for the Tea Party, then job well done!

Thanks to Paul for the heads up.

Love Me Some Invisible Hand of the Market Forces

I have a soft place in my heart for the Girl Scouts.  I also like their cookies.

And their ingenuity.

On Monday, Danielle Lei and her mother set up shop outside the Green Cross store with the cookies. With the store’s blessing, Lei sold 117 boxes in two hours.

Holli Bert, a spokeswoman for the Green Cross, said that after just 45 minutes, Lei had to call for backup cookies to replenish her stock.

Some real stuffy people think that’s inappropriate.  I think it’s cool.

People at liquor stores would not buy Girl Scout cookies.  Neither would Republicans.  They think Girl Scouts are little devil demons with sashes.

Thanks to Craig for the heads up.

Oh No. Oh. Oh. Oh. No.

There’s a radio ad over at the Washington Post.

Who told them that this was a good idea?

Thanks to Scott for the heads up.

Two More Hit The Dirt

Okay, so while I was out playing around, I heard that Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina waved a white flag.

Who’s next?  Any guesses?

 

Fun With Guns: Miracle Style Edition

February 10, 2016 By: Juanita Jean Category: Uncategorized

You knew this was gonna happen.  They have a funeral for the Oregon militia guy killed by law enforcement, and I’ll be damned, there’s a gun involved.

Two days after a funeral for Robert “LaVoy” Finicum attracted men bearing the symbols of well-known militias, a maid working Sunday morning at Kanab’s Holiday Inn Express discovered a shattered mirror where a bullet had been fired through a wall.

The shot was not heard by nearby guests or staff and lodged in a headboard, Kanab Police Chief Tom Cram said.

Now here’s the miracle part.

Police Chief Tom Cram investigated.  The two men who checked in those rooms were both openly carrying firearms.  Hold your breath now …

“It was kind of suspicious to us in the fact that everybody claims to not be in the room when it happened,” Cram said.

Ya think?

Well, if Jesus can turn water into wine, surely he can cause an accidental discharge.

Thanks to Ralph for the heads up.
