Meth in a FEMA Camp

I was wrong about how long it was going to take the FEMA trailer park here in Joplin to be riddled with meth-heads. I thought it would take a least a year before things started to go down hill and would really plunge after we were left with a giant trailer park to fill after everyone who could afford better had left after the 18months of free housing. This just goes to prove the old saying, "Lend a man a garden and in five years he will have a patch of sand, make a man full owner of a patch of sand and in five years he will have made it a garden." Even better I've heard an interview with a local fire official who said that they've placed these trailers so close together that if one goes up it in a meth-lab explosion it will likely spread to the surrounding trailers in a nice fiery deathtrap chain reaction. All of this has be paid for with our tax dollars.

More maddening is just how foreseen this was as is evidenced by the fact that this FEMA-park is located as far from the main part of Joplin as possible on land that the city only has to physically link it to it's airport. This could also be seen coming from the fact that they did NO background checks on the FEMA-refugees.

All of this reinforces a central tenet espoused at the Survival Blog don't put yourself in a position where you will become a refugee. We are seeing the contrast here in Joplin between the people who did and didn't and this was a relatively localized event where the state, municipality, and business responded to the crisis very well. For example of how quickly things can go down hill google the New Orleans Super Dome.

Two months after the tornado people looked at me like I was a heartless monster for voicing my concerns about the long term ramifications of this FEMA-slum . I wish I had been wrong, because I don't live nearly far enough from it. I still wonder how much "collapse the system" ideology saddled us with this "solution".

Occupy the Living

Had to share this from one of my favorite web comics Sluggy Freelance.

Occupy Resorces to Collapse the System

The Occupiers have managed to divert enough of NYC's police force to cause a 154% increase in shootings. So to turn the occupier's rhetoric around while they(overwhelmingly actually from the upper class they claim to protest) , the poor they claim to be fighting for are being shot in greater numbers due to their diverting police to supervise their drum circles.

The very fact that rapes are now becoming the norm in these events begins to show the character of their attendees. Meanwhile it was difficult to find even litter at Tea Party events.

Occupy Education

Because nothing teaches a 6 year old civic responsibility like dealing heroin in front of them at Occupy Boston.

Weekend Tab Clearing

Tabs of things worth blogging upon seemed to explode on my broweser this weekend:

FBI study suggest gang recruiting/infiltration of military the worrisome thing to my mind isn't gang members going in to the military, it would be if large numbers are still allied to their gangs when they leave the military. If so it means we have a moral or discipline problem.

The pro-Israel muslim man who was attacked in my own state is speaking out about his ordeal. If we don't squash this quickly the next dhimmi could be Americans in America.

In something that should have been a bigger story the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia died this weekend. Wither you like the Sauds or not this could have huge implications to the future cost of energy, not that you would know it from our president giving the condolance call from the middle of his gold game.

Obama has also been found on tape proving his AG perjured himself to congress about the  gunwalker scandal.

Though Katie Pavlich has done an amazing report showing just how deep the rot goes in the BATFE. It certainly seems that the "brains" behind Operation Fast and Furious is vindictive enough to be classified as an accomplice in the attempted murder of the family of one of his own field agents.  Even going so far as to allege the agent burned his own home while his wife and children were in it. Moreover this bag of excrement has been promoted and is using his new greater power to intimate anyone who would step forward and make him look bad.

In related news a 66 year old woman that the Brady Bunch would love to see helpless shot a recently released criminal who was breaking into her house. This guy was determined enough that he didn't stop even after she fired two warning shots. I don't personally advocate warning shots since in my opinion if something is dire enough to warrant discharging a firearm it is dire enough to need to be used for effect. This is just one more hint that anyone but especially women, the infirm and the elderly should consider changing from muscle to chemically powered self defense.

Cult of Tacticool: Tactical Sarong

It's been a while but I've found something new to mock in the cult of tacticool, behold the Tactical Sarong. Yes because nothing says deadly tactical operator like a length of purple cloth between your hands. Or to quote the website:

...and a formidable self-defense tool as well.

If you ever asked yourself what a mall ninja would wear to the beach(besides the two layers of ballistic plates, this is it.)

Occupy Rape

In actual written literature(and for a supposedly grass roots movement don't they seem to have a lot of REMFs) discouraged rape victims from involving the police in their "community".

(Baltimore Sun) — Efforts by the Occupy Baltimore protest group to evolve into a self-contained, self-governing community have erupted into controversy with the distribution of a pamphlet that victim advocates and health workers fear discourages victims of sexual assaults from contacting police.
The pamphlet says that members of the protest group who believe they are victims or who suspect sexual abuse “are encouraged to immediately report the incident to the Security Committee,” which will investigate and “supply the abuser with counseling resources.”
The directive also says, in part, “Though we do not encourage the involvement of the police in our community, the survivor has every right, and the support of Occupy Baltimore, to report the abuse to the appropriate authorities.”

This must have been what the Vice President meant about the nation facing an increase in rape if the President's "Jobs Bill" wasn't passed.

I prefer this "real world solution" to rape attempts.

non sequitur

Last night as I was going to sleep my brain trotted this out.

Imagine if William Shatner lost his temper at a convention and hit a trekie. The headline would write itself:
Shat Hits Fan

I just had to share that.....and this.

LA SWAT follows the ATFs lead.

Apparently the LAPD was sure their super padlock technology would secure the 24 MP-5s and 12 1911s that they are admitting to losing to theft from their training facility. But not to worry the thieves will have to go through the arduous process of removing the blank adapters from the guns before using them in drive-by shootings.

Sounds like Sean needs to expand his T-shirt line.

Peaceful Occupation

A convicted felon with a rifle was arrested at Occupy Seattle. Though the media displays their typical familiarity with firearms in refering to this as a short barreled rifle,  just eyballing I can tell the barrel is over 16".

But remember the tea party are the scary violent militia types, also 2+2=5 don't make me get the rat cage.

TOTUS Kidnapped President Silent

Thieves have stolen a vehicle containing the President's teleprompter. Inflicting upon the rest of us the horror of Obama trying to stutter through a speech that isn't beamed into his brain by George Soros.

Occupy Funny

The people organizing the Occupy movement are dire threats to the republic, but their useful idiots can be fun to laugh at and mock.

Saint Patrick's Breastplate

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through the belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

I arise today
Through the strength of Christ's birth with his baptism,
Through the strength of his crucifixion with his burial,
Through the strength of his resurrection with his ascension,
Through the strength of his descent for the judgment of Doom.

I arise today
Through the strength of the love of Cherubim,
In obedience of angels,
In the service of archangels,
In hope of resurrection to meet with reward,
In prayers of patriarchs,
In predictions of prophets,
In preaching of apostles,
In faith of confessors,
In innocence of holy virgins,
In deeds of righteous men.

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven:
Light of sun,
Radiance of moon,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of wind,
Depth of sea,
Stability of earth,
Firmness of rock.

I arise today
Through God's strength to pilot me:
God's might to uphold me,
God's wisdom to guide me,
God's eye to look before me,
God's ear to hear me,
God's word to speak for me,
God's hand to guard me,
God's way to lie before me,
God's shield to protect me,
God's host to save me
From snares of devils,
From temptations of vices,
From everyone who shall wish me ill,
Afar and anear,
Alone and in multitude.

I summon today all these powers between me and those evils,
Against every cruel merciless power that may oppose my body and soul,
Against incantations of false prophets,
Against black laws of pagandom
Against false laws of heretics,
Against craft of idolatry,
Against spells of witches and smiths and wizards,
Against every knowledge that corrupts man's body and soul.

Christ to shield me today
Against poison, against burning,
Against drowning, against wounding,
So that there may come to me abundance of reward.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down, Christ when I arise,
Christ in the heart of every man who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in every eye that sees me,
Christ in every ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through belief in the threeness,
Through confession of the oneness,
Of the Creator of Creation.

Another truism bites the dust.

One of "Murphy's Laws of War" was "There is nothing more terrifying than a second lieutenant with a compass and a map." Behold the terror of a cadet with a grenade.

Topeka Kansas Backs Domestic Violence Victims Into A Corner

City officials have found a new strawman to demand ever greater government funding. As you know any time people seriously talk of merely slowing the growth of government or heaven forbid real cuts, we are told that the police, firemen, and teachers are the first and only places that can be cut. Pay no attention to the offices full of buricrats making the lives of citizens miserable, the bloated SEIU contracts, or the "winning" bids that top campaign contributors happen to have.

Now Topeka Kansas has found a new treat to beat away the tides of austerity. Apparently the only place they can save money in the prosecutors office is to stop prosecuting domestic violence cases. This leaves people in a situation of having to protect themselves, sadly many of the victims have been so mentally traumatized that they can't. Doubtlessly the few who do shoot an escalating abuser will be portrayed as "taking the law into their own hands. I would ask what else is left when the law has arbitrarily declared its hands off of abusive scum like this?

Gunning for a Dawin Award.

Darwin awards are given to people who have improved the human race by eliminating themselves from the gene pool. This guy really must have wanted one.
