Happy Feet Friday

And I do mean happy feet: Chuck Berry in a live performance of Roll Over Beethoven.

At least a jackass has a backbone

Tear-spigot, tan-in-a-can, Republican establishment invertebrate John Boehner called Ted Cruz a "jackass" at a fundraiser in Colorado.

Some attendees, at least, were not amused:
“I don’t think it’s terribly speaker-like, and I think it kind of goes against everything that Reagan ever said about disparaging Republicans,” said Ed MacArthur, the president of Native Excavating, who attended the fundraiser.
It's not terribly speaker-like because Boehner is a terrible speaker. He is either powerless - or, more likely, uninterested - in halting the growth of government and scaling back the government's role as a conduit for the flood of left-wing nostrums that are destroying our society, culture and economy. He's a tricycle among mountain bikes, a squirt gun among Colt .45's. a bubble-gum cigar among Montecristos. If conservatives are ultimately to be defeated, please, Lord, let our defeat at least occur honorably under the generalship of a fighting man (or woman), not contemptibly under the disingenuous plotting of this unscrupulous poseur.

Jeb, Jeb, Jeb...

I've already got enough reasons not to vote for you. Now you're just trying to piss me off.

Tell it, brother!

Charlie Daniels: "The courageous politicians that once championed this nation have been replaced, for the most part, by a breed of milksop, politically correct, scared of their own shadow, pushover, pathetic excuses for public servants who are supposed to be representing a constituency of citizens who have to live with the circumstances of their timid folly...You don’t even have the courage to face down an out of control president, even when he makes a deal with the devil... Don’t you bunch of timid capons even care what kind of world you’re leaving to your children and grandchildren, not to even mention the rest of us? Are you really party partisans before you’re parents and grandparents or even human beings?”

RIP, Alison Parker and Adam Ward

Our deepest sympathies are extended to the families and friends of the two WBDJ employees who were shot down in cold blood by a deranged creep in Roanoke, Virginia. And may God grant wounded survivor Vicki Gardner a speedy recovery.

Illegal immigrants

Nothing if not innovative:
A rock band returning to Britain in their tour bus after performing in France found an illegal immigrant hidden in a guitar case.

When society breaks down

Residents of Detroit are keenly aware of who has the primary responsibility for their safety:
In a city plagued by chronic unemployment and crime and guarded by a dwindling police force, residents of Detroit are increasingly taking protection of themselves, their families and property into their own hands. Those who do so responsibly have the blessing and backing of Detroit Police Chief James Craig.

“When you look at the city of Detroit, we’re kind of leading the way in terms of urban areas with law-abiding citizens carrying guns,” Craig said recently.
