Hooteries and Bill Maher Madness

A quick quiz to see how well you pay attention to the news

The Hooteries (you know, that rightwing white racist domestic terrorist group) are soooo dangerous, and such a threat to the United States of America, that:

a) President Obama is launching drones over Michigan, and threatening to declare war on the Upper Peninsula

b) Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered them held indefinitely

c) A federal judge has ordered them released, while scolding the government for its tissue-thin case.

If you guessed C, you're right!  Can anybody say "politically motivated?"  Obama can't find any right wing domestic terrorists, so he invented some by wire tapping a group smack-talking nutballs.

Here's your prize:  See what happens when Bill Maher tries sit at the big peoples' table.  
He's not so witty when he has to actually interact with thinking people:

Go read all about it at Big Journalism!

who makes a comment like this without having data to support it. If I make bold statements like this in a meeting, it is my obligation to have the quick facts to support!

Maher may be funny, but he's not very smart.

Strip away Bill Mahr's use of derision, ridicule, sarcasm, and shock value trash talk and what do you have? A not very bright wise guy.

Sugar cane ethanol, or in my part of the globe, corn based ethanol, is the reason why I have to replace my weed eater, lawn tractor carburetor, hedge trimmer and leaf blower every other year or so: that crap eats away at the internal components such as gasket materials and sealer, etc. It's just a nasty, corrosive, crappy substitute for good, ol' gas.

Bill Maher obviously doesn't have any of these machines.

Silverfiddle said...

And your tax dollars are subsidizing it to boot, Fredd.

That's the most galling part. When you add up the total cost, ethanol is a big money waster that starves people to feed cars. But what do you expect when government gets involved?

Hey Fredd- Interesting. So I asked hubby and he said the moisture content seems to be problem with these fuels which encourages the corrosion. This makes me wonder about home heating systems that use similar stuff because the owner wants to use green fuel.

In regards to the Hutaree guys, we have learned that Feds bring down people mostly by soft-entrapment, or by acting as agent provocateurs.

In other words, the new "friend" you've met at a tea party who tries to entice you into something illegal (or even talking about something illegal, which is "conspiracy") may be a Federale.

It's just the thing that happened to these kooks in Michigan, drinking beer and loose talk. They were mostly harmless until the Feds painted them as the local Taliban.

Friends don't let friends get entrapped by the Feds!

Excellent points, Anon!

That's what happened to Randy Weaver. Undercover feds enticed him to illegally modify a weapon. It ended with the government assassinating his wife and child.

The bottom line, of course, it to refrain from illegal activity.
