Tit for tat

We've all read about some of the outrageous actions taken by banks over the last several years in the wake of the decline in the housing market: banks foreclosing on mortgages that weren't delinquent, even a few cases where banks foreclosed on homes which weren't mortgaged at all. Well, one Florida couple whose home was wrongfully foreclosed pushed back in a truly unique fashion: they essentially foreclosed on the bank.
The Florida incident arose when the bank foreclosed on Warren and Maureen Nyerges of Golden Gate Estates in Naples. This surprised the Nyerges, since they had no mortgage--not with BofA or with anybody else. They had paid cash for their home in 2009.

Warren Nyerges made phone calls to the bank to try to get them to desist. "I talked to branch managers, I called anyone who would listen to me," he told the Naples News. "I wrote a certified letter to the [bank] president. No response, nothing." Finally he hired an attorney. Two months later, the foreclosure had been dismissed.

Nyerges then sought to recover his attorney's fees, and got a judgment against the bank. Five more months passed: more phone calls, more letters; no payment. Nyerges went back to court and got a writ of execution, which gave him permission to seize bank assets in payment for his judgment.

On June 3, Nyerges, two sheriff's deputies and a moving truck showed up at the local BofA branch. The deputies informed the manager that he could either pay the Nyerges' legal fees— $2,500—or the movers would start taking away the bank's furniture and cash. The manager, after conferring with his superiors, gave the deputies a check.
Bravo Mr. and Mrs. Nyerges! Well played.

Dartmouth faces new challenge

Remember how I said that, with respect to the political left, the fringe now constitutes most of the carpet? Dartmouth offers another example in the form of a gaggle of self-professed victim groups trying to extort special privileges.
…a bunch of students who refer to themselves as "Concerned Asian, Black, Latin@, Native, Undocumented, Queer, and Differently-Abled students" wrote a letter to administrators at Dartmouth to threaten "physical action" if the administrators do not respond to their list of demands.
Among their many interesting demands is one I find completely baffling: “Incorporate into each department at LEAST one queer studies class.” Really? Literally “each” department? Is there such a thing as queer physics? Queer math? Perhaps non-Euclidian geometry fills the bill.

Slow Joe Biden: It’s all about the hate

Joe Biden, in a speech at a Black History Month event, attributed voter ID laws to “hatred”.

Well, in a way, you’re right, Einstein. Those of us who support voter ID laws hate voter fraud, we hate the Democratic Party’s support of voter fraud, and we hate the negative impact that dishonest elections have on democracy. And by the way, it’s not that hard to find evidence of voter fraud.

As an experiment in more restrictive gun control…

…maybe we should prohibit ATF personnel from carrying guns.
ATF agents have lost track of dozens of government-issued guns, after stashing them under the front seats in their cars, in glove compartments or simply leaving them on top of their vehicles and driving away…
Not to worry. They’ll probably turn up in Mexico, eventually.

Ok, how did this happen?

A blow to the Dingell-Barry axis

John Dingell, a liberal Michigan Democrat who has not so much served in Congress as taken root there, has announced his retirement after 58 freakin’ years.

This living fossil – elected in 1955, the year I was born - has been a staunch ally of the Obama administration, and his departure from a Congress that he now finds “obnoxious” (i.e., no longer the unchallenged preserve of bipartisan statists) deprives the president of one of his most reliable Mamelukes. However, it looks as if his wife of 38 years may have a go at the job, which would keep this rotten borough safely in the family (Dingell pretty much inherited the job from his father, a –surprise! – New Deal Democrat).

Happy trails, John, and may you live long enough to become hopelessly entangled in the coils of the Affordable Care Act which you so strongly supported (although I imagine that after 58 years of political “service”, and the opportunities for the acquisition of booty deriving therefrom, plus marriage to a wealthy former auto industry executive, you will be spared the inconvenience you foisted on so many of your unfortunate fellow citizens).

It’s probably due to the jaded crabbiness that sometimes comes with age, but increasingly I find myself thinking wistfully how pleasant it would be if more of these high-profile departures of the gravediggers of American liberty featured handcuffs and leg irons, and perhaps –just every now and then – a rope and a trap-door.

George Soros' millions keep showing up in the most interesting places

Two journalism schools that benefited from donations made by left-wing billionaire George Soros were working with the FCC in setting up the latter's controversial "surveys" of news outlets. The project has since been dropped (for now), but, ominously, not because of an outcry from the mainstream media, which appears more than happy to continue serving as the Obama administration's collective stenographer.

By the way, in connection with the FCC's original plan to poke around news and editorial decision-making in the nations media outlets - which many think would have focused on radio, where conservatives dominate news/talk programming - someone on a local morning radio talk show (sorry, can't remember who it was) said that "Obama makes Nixon look like Ron Paul". Yes. Yes he does.

The phenomenon of the smart dumbass

Tom Steyer, one of the Democrats’ fattest fat cats, serves as a good example of how one can be very sharp at some things – like getting good grades in top-notch schools and making lots of money – yet still be blind to huge swaths of reality. Although whether this is proof of involuntary limited dumbassery or one or more mental/emotional pathologies is not really clear to me. Perhaps it all boils down to the difference between intellectual quotient and wisdom (or character and the lack thereof).

Yeah, what now?

Commenter and blogger Veeshir delves into a subject that I find interesting, troubling - and perhaps promising: what exactly does Connecticut plan to do with its tens of thousands of brand new felons, otherwise known as citizens who refuse to register their so-called "assault rifles"?

I believe we are rapidly approaching a time when ordinary people are going to be dragged into legal crises of the government's making, and the choice is going to be civil disobedience or serfdom. Hell, we're already there. Question is, are we the frog in the slowly-heating pot of water, or are we the grizzly that's just taken a BB shot on the snout?

I agree

If the Republican Party is to have a future at all, it'll be people like Ted Cruz and Mike Lee who will lead it. Otherwise, the GOP will be joining the Whigs in the dustbin of American politics. The juggernaut of progressivism isn't going to be stopped by a couple of squirt guns like Boehner and McConnell.

The Paco Command Center is presently blanketed under a foot of snow, and the Yankee government, which was closed yesterday, is offering employees liberal leave today (i.e., you can use your annual leave without prior permission). I guess I ought to be makin' with the snow shovel.

Well, this morning Mrs. Paco and I were watching a movie we hadn't seen before - Some Way with Women - a romantic comedy from 1947 starring Greenstreet, Dane Clark and Martha Vickers.

You've got to hand it to the Canadians

They know how to do the Olympics (H/T: Captain Heinrichs).

As Popeye Doyle said in The French Connection II

“I’d rather be a lamp post in New York than the president of France.”

Incidentally, who was minding the teleprompter yesterday? One wonders what “Big Al” De Tocqueville would have to say about Obama’s exercise of extra-constitutional power (well, he might say something like this).

Also from the Dept. of You Can Dress the Guy Up But You Can’t Take Him Anywhere, there’s this tone-deaf comment that Barry made at Monticello:
America’s president — heir to the world’s greatest document of freedom ever drawn up by man — strode across the hallowed grounds of Thomas Jefferson’s Monticello. With his hands clasped behind his back as a fuehrer surveying his troops or his kingdom [or Paris in June of 1940 – Paco], he told a gaggle of onlookers, “That’s the good thing about being president. I can do whatever I want.”

It may have been a lame attempt at despot humor. But it fell terribly flat and reveals a shocking unawareness of himself and what so many American people think of him. As if nobody in the White House grasps what a plague this president has been on our Constitution. He simply ignores laws he doesn’t like, rewrites others more to his liking and shows complete disdain for the two branches of government designed precisely to keep the president in check.
You said it, brother. Thank God for the heroic Establishment Republican Resistance, and its leading maquisards maquitards, John Boehner and Mitch McConnell!

2nd amendment advocacy = terrorism

“Documents from an Ohio National Guard (ONG) training drill conducted last January reveal the details of a mock disaster where Second Amendment supporters with 'anti-government' opinions were portrayed as domestic terrorists.”

But of course! Just like the Boston Marathon. Or 9/11.

“Portsmouth Chief of Police Bill Raisin told NBC 3 WSAZ-TV in Huntington, West Virginia that the drill accurately represented ‘the reality of the world we live in,’ adding that such training ‘helps us all be prepared.’”

Hey, why stop there? You know what else mirrors reality? The zombie apocalypse. Also space aliens. And triffids. And don’t forget the long-running BBQ wars (vinegar-based vs. tomato); that violence could spill over into Ohio at any time.

Free-speech absolutist

I think that I would read Mark Steyn with pleasure on any subject – from aardvarks to zithers – but his passionate essays in defense of free speech truly stir the mind and heart. He is our Cato the Younger, tenacious and incorruptible, tirelessly revealing the evil at the center of authoritarian progressivism; however, unlike the somber Cato, he adds a heaping measure of humor to his criticisms, which makes him a refreshingly happy warrior – one who is not likely to succumb to the despair that ultimately overwhelmed the Roman politician.

Here he writes:
It takes all sorts to make a world and I've met a lot of them over the years, and I can stand pretty much anything anyone says about anything — until someone says to me, "You can't say that." At which point my inclination is to punch his lights out. I do this not just because I'm a violent psychopath with a hair-trigger temper, but to make the important point that in societies where you're not free to speak your mind — to argue and debate — the only way to express disagreement is through violence.
As is well known, Mark Steyn is the target of a lawsuit filed by the absurd climate alarmist, Michael Mann. Steyn cried “fiddlesticks!” to Mann’s hockey stick, and the Nobel non-laureate, rather than debating Steyn, is seeking to shut him up. If we possessed a justice system in this country that did not, in effect, serve as the equivalent of the Lawyers’ Full Employment Act, I believe Mann would have been summarily ordered to take his hockey stick and go home a long time ago. Alas, we now live in a world where legal procedures represent, not so much a decision tree, as a decision kudzu vine, so God alone knows what the ultimate verdict will be, or even whether one will be reached in our lifetimes. One doesn’t have to be omniscient, though, to imagine the expense involved, so you can help Mark out by shopping at his online bookstore.

Darleen Click at Protein Wisdom opines on the progressives’ absurd new take on the concept of work (which is not really a new take, just more pronounced, lately, because of the need to find excuses for Obama’s job-killing policies and programs).

Southern fried blitzkrieg

Did you know that Bill Clinton once worried about getting reelected because of, among other things, southern “Nazis”?

Much, much more from the “Hillary Papers” at the The Washington Free Beacon. Yes, it’s news about the old days, but it underscores the single-minded pursuit of power by someone who may yet be president. Consider it background material for the more relevant context of her performance in recent years (which ranges from undistinguished to fatally incompetent).

My short take: if you think the Democrats are a ruthless bunch of power junkies now, just wait until Hillary gets elected. You ain’t seen nuthin’ yet. It’ll be a combustible mixture of narcissistic power-mongering and a hopelessly wrongheaded ideological worldview. God help us if all the Republicans have to offer is the McConnell/Boehner Axis of Accommodation.

Oh, and I guess we can all breathe a sigh of relief that retired General David Petraeus never succumbed to the lure of a potential Republican presidential candidacy: “[Hillary Clinton would] make a tremendous president”. Dude, try not to leave a hickie on her backside, ok?

Democrats and the Rolling Stones gambit

What Democrats are really trying to accomplish with ObamaCare.

Who’s the leading conservative politician in the world today?

It’s difficult to argue with Samuel Gregg’s assertion that it’s Australia’s PM, Tony Abbott.
Elected prime minister in September last year, Abbott is in many respects the left’s nightmare come true. For one thing, he’s a practicing Catholic, who, though he doesn’t draw attention to his faith, is generally associated in people’s minds with the Church’s conservative wing. Among other brickbats, that’s earned him (rather sectarian) epithets such as the “mad monk.”

At the same time, Abbott possesses — like his political mentor, Australia’s most successful modern conservative politician, John Howard — the common touch. In private and public, he comes across as rather normal and unpretentious. In Australian politics, that will take you a very, very long way. But Abbott is unique insofar as he combines an ability to communicate with ordinary people with being that rarity among conservative politicians: someone genuinely interested in ideas.

Strict gun-control states shooting themselves in the foot

Beretta announced last week it was becoming the latest gun maker to expand beyond the borders of its home state following passage of tougher gun laws. Instead of building in Maryland, which adopted stiff new regulations last year, Beretta is putting up a new manufacturing and research facility in the Nashville, Tenn. suburb of Gallatin.”

Let’s see how many jobs Maryland’s gun-phobia creates; for that matter, let’s see how well the smug assumption of tougher gun control=fewer violent crimes works out.

Elsewhere, Chicago leads the way in the weenie-fication of America.
Administrators at a school in the South Suburbs of Chicago are up in arms over a state law (House Bill 0183) that requires schools to post small signs announcing that guns cannot be carried in schools.

Some school officials aren’t happy about the stickers because they contain a very basic image of a gun [emphasis mine – Paco].

“It is bothersome to have to post a sticker of a gun that says, ‘Hey, folks, leave your guns at home,’” Theresa Nolan, principal of Tinley Park High School, told the SouthtownStar.

Nolan stressed that she is very concerned with “safety and security” and concerned that, somehow, someone could wrongly interpret an image of a gun emblazoned with the universal sign for prohibiting something.

“I think the general public will be alarmed by it and wonder if people have been allowed to bring guns to school in the past,” Nolan also fretted.

She said she would prefer “something more subtle.”
How about a big happy face with the words, “Arms are for hugging"?

One of the headless chickens speaks out

Obama has a pen and a phone...

...and a thumb that he sticks in the eye of normal citizens every chance he gets: "Obama Nominates Cop Killer Advocate to Head DOJ Civil Rights Division".

So Barry searched the land over, looking high and low, poring over the resumes of hundreds of qualified civil rights attorneys, and this is the guy he chose? Obama isn't so much the president of the United States as he is the narcissistic, abusive, control freak in a dysfunctional relationship. Isn't there some way we can get a restraining order against this creep?

Update: Looks like this clown got his formative training on the street; Sesame Street, that is:

Some (typically) good points from Thomas Sowell on immigration

Subtitle: Why are Republicans such idiots?
The latest bright idea among Republicans inside the Beltway is a new version of amnesty that is virtually certain to lose votes among the Republican base and is unlikely to gain many votes among the Hispanics the Republican leadership is courting.
Exactly what I’ve been thinking; it’s a “lose-lose” proposition. Dr. Sowell continues:
Immigration laws are the only laws that are discussed in terms of how to help people who break them. One of the big problems that those who are pushing “comprehensive immigration reform” want solved is how to help people who came here illegally and are now “living in the shadows” as a result.

What about embezzlers or burglars who are “living in the shadows” in fear that someone will discover their crimes? Why not “reform” the laws against embezzlement or burglary, so that such people can also come out of the shadows?
Comprehensive immigration reform is rumored to be dead this year, but I say beware of spray-tanned weepers and suave, blue-eyed smilers; they may be obtuse when it comes to the ability to understand great principles, but they frequently possess a low form of animal cunning that serves them well in hornswoggling their colleagues.
