Politically Correct Turn Around in Texas?

I see that the Texas father, who caught an individual attempting to rape his 5 year old daughter, and then beat the man, killing him, is now going to be charged with a homicide by the District Attorney.  Let’s hope that the grand jury, which must rule on the evidence, will not be as politically correctly inclined to agree with the DA.

Texas Father’s Killing of Child Molester Ruled Homicide

UPDATE (06.20.2012): No charges for Texas father who killed daughter’s alleged molester

Very good.

Doesn’t the DHS Have a Lexicon for This Type of Individual?

Headline in the Washington TimesCURL: Obama: A domestic enemy of the U.S. Constitution

Doesn’t the DHS have a lexicon for this type of individual?

I don’t think Obama is quite the type of club member, though, that the Domestic Terrorist Violent Extremist Club of America would really welcome aboard.

Slut Juxtaposition

InstaPundit, links to an article, under what Reynolds terms in a continuing series of posts, “21st Century Relationships,” titled ‘Deep down all girls want to be like me’: The woman who’s slept with 200 men, but insists she’s not a slut, wherein one Biannca Lake, who is 28 years old, proclaims her pride in having slept with approximately 177 men, as the headline to the article clearly states.

Not so fast, Biannca, here’s one woman, Lisa Dierbeck, a confessed former sex kitten, who clearly disagrees with you.

I led a rather sad, disconnected life—until I mustered up the courage to let my guard down. I can’t help wondering now if maybe there are some women out there, like me, putting on this same kind of act, suppressing their passion and vulnerability. I believe women today are under pressure to reinvent them, to conform to a bed-hopping, no-strings ethos that’s in vogue.

Now that the love affair has been replaced by the booty call, it’s fashionable to treat sex as something without weight or meaning. Our aggressively modern culture has chipped away at our collective faith in romance. Decades ago, “The Joy of Sex” made history with its illustrated, step-by-step recipes for lovemaking. It was a useful, practical source of information, except for one colossal error.

Unlike cooking, sex isn’t a hobby. People aren’t playthings. They’re richly intricate creatures full of good and evil impulses, psychological conflicts and contradictions. Sometimes we insist upon a “casual relationship” to deny the uncomfortable truth: Sex is complicated.

Of course it was not until Lisa Dierbeck was 40 years old that she apparently figured out being a sex kitten was not in her best interests, so maybe in 12 more years Biannca Lake will figure out that offering her vagina as an any port in a storm receptacle is not as fulfilling as she currently imagines.

Let’s Go Fly A Kite

The headline reads, US won’t send checks to Europe: Romney, and Romney’s ostensible reason for why the US won’t send checks to Europe is as follows.

“We’re not going to send checks to Europe. We’re not going to bail out the European banks. We’re going to be poised here to support our economy,...”

Though the above makes for a good sound bite, the actual reason(s) the US won’t be sending checks to Europe is because it would be check kiting, wrapped in the Disneyesque fantasy of Let’s Go Fly a Kite.

“The Origins of the Military Coup of 2012”

Here’s some interesting reading to start your Monday.  The Origins of the Military Coup of 2012 (pdf of 19 pgs.)

Back in 1992 the Pentagon’s Joint Chiefs of Staff held a “Strategy Essay Competition.”

The winner was a National War College student paper entitled, “The Origins of the American Military Coup of 2012.” Authored by Colonel Charles J. Dunlap, Jr. the paper is a well documented, “darkly imagined excursion into the future.” The ostensibly fictional work is written from the perspective of an imprisoned senior military officer about to be executed for opposing the military takeover of America, a coup accomplished through “legal” means. The essay makes the point that the coup was “the outgrowth of trends visible as far back as 1992,” including “the massive diversion of military forces to civilian uses,” particularly law enforcement.
