See?

“If you can kill a disbelieving American or European – especially the spiteful and filthy French – or an Australian, or a Canadian, or any other disbeliever from the disbelievers waging war, including the citizens of the countries that entered into a coalition against the Islamic State, then (do so), … If you are not able to find an IED or a bullet, then single out the disbelieving American, Frenchman, or any of their allies.

“Smash his head with a rock, or slaughter him with a knife, or run him over with your car, or throw him down from a high place, or choke him, or poison him.”

Do…

Colleen Hufford, the 54-year-old woman who was savagely beheaded by a deranged co-worker [Alton Nolen], was working at Vaughan Foods … [She was] the first person who crossed his path…

A classmate of Nolen’s, … told this newspaper that according to the [Nolen’s] family member, Nolen was telling coworkers Thursday of an Islamic teaching that said women should be stoned for an offense, and that an argument followed the mark [sic], Nolen was later fired and returned later Thursday, when he beheaded Colleen Hufford, the family member said.

I do so hate it when I’m right.

[H]ence, Obama gives us the Khorosan Group.

The who?

There is a reason that no one had heard of such a group until a nanosecond ago, when the “Khorosan Group” suddenly went from anonymity to the “imminent threat” that became the rationale for an emergency air war there was supposedly no time to ask Congress to authorize.

You haven’t heard of the Khorosan Group because there isn’t one. It is a name the administration came up with, calculating that Khorosan — the –Iranian–​Afghan border region — had sufficient connection to jihadist lore that no one would call the president on it.

The “Khorosan Group” is al-Qaeda. It is simply a faction within the global terror network’s Syrian franchise, “Jabhat al-Nusra.” [much more, GRTWT]

JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO: Every time that Barack Obama has bent, broken, avoided or evaded the constitution or federal law, Eric Holder has been at his side cheering him on, providing intellectual cover, and purporting to give him legal advice, authorizing what the president wanted to do. From allowing the president to kill Americans, from allowing the Americans to spy on Americans, from personally authorizing the invasion of privacy of our colleague James Rosen, from seizing property from people who weren’t even charged with crimes, Eric Holder has been behind all of it. He is probably the least faithful to the constitution of any president [sic: Atty. Gen.] in modern times, and he doesn’t regret any of it.

[Holder 1995] “What we need to do is change the way in which people think about guns, especially young people, and make it something that’s not cool, that it’s not acceptable, it’s not hip to carry a gun anymore, in the way in which we changed our attitudes about cigarettes.”

if I were the rioting type…

A guy will most always have his driver’s license in his wallet on his person but I don’t know of anyone who’d have their vehicle registration anywhere but in the glove compartment.

This is quite terrifying and so very sad.

Thank God this guy survived…

judge needs a 1.5×3.5 upside the head

The litigation racket is a self-licking ice cream cone:

Lowe’s has new rules regarding how it can label building products in California. A Superior Court judge laid out terms by which the retailer must advertise its 2x4s and other dimensional materials in a $1.6 million settlement order and final judgement …. The order, brought on as part of a civil consumer protection action, lists three main rules for the retailer to follow going forward:

• “Common descriptions” must be followed by actual dimensions and labeled as such. For instance, a 2×4 must be followed with a disclaimer that the wood is actually 1.5-inches by 3.5-inches and include a phrase equal or similar to “actual dimensions.”
• “Popular or common product description,” like the word 2×4, must be “clearly described as ‘popular name,’ ‘popular description,’ or ‘commonly called.’”
• Dimension descriptions are required to use the “inch-pound unit,” meaning they must include abbreviations such as “in., ft., or yd.,” and can’t use symbols like ‘ or ” to denote measurements.

Surprised they didn’t make ‘em label the dimensions in centimeters.
Hey, if y’don’t know how big a 2×4 is, y’might not know how big an inch is, either.
Wait, can they still abbreviate dollars as $?

The order … came as a response to a case involving claims by the Marin County, Calif., district attorney’s office [you know, self-promoting jackasses] that the retailer “unlawfully advertised structural dimensional building products for sale.”

According to the judgement [sic], the retailer was ordered to pay $1.47 million in civil penalties and costs of the investigation, and an additional $150,000 to fund further consumer protection-related activities [you know, seed money for shaking-down other merchants]. [story]

It’s sad when some folks aren’t qualified to shop, then a court blames the store.
Can’t wait for the 20d nail lawsuit.

(What? Yeah, if only there were a simple device even a tofu-eating idiot could carry that would measure stuff.)
