Don't Turn Your Back.

From The Huffington Post.

On Tuesday, as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke on issues of free speech at George Washington University, 71-year-old former CIA analyst Ray McGovern was assaulted, dragged from the room and double handcuffed with metal cuffs causing profuse bleeding.

While the "Honorable" Mrs. Clinton was blathering on about the injustice of the Iran internet crackdown on protesters 71 year old Ray McGovern remained standing and turned his back to her in protest.  The result was he was assaulted and arrested and detained for no reason. 

Clinton complaining about heavy-handed government oppression.  Obama increasing the troop count in Afghanistan and authorizing death drones and accepting the Nobel Peace Prize.  What a bunch of hypocritical ass clowns.

The Donald Has Spoken.

Donald Trump, himself threatening to run for president, offers his useless opinion of Ron Paul's  elect-ability.

For The Second Year In A Row-Ron Paul Wins CPAC Straw Vote.

From Politics Daily:

For the second successive year, Rep. Ron Paul of Texas won the presidential straw poll conducted at the Conservative Political Action Conference, or CPAC, capturing 30 percent of the vote.

Former Gov. Mitt Romney of Massachusetts was second in the straw poll with 23 percent of the vote, Republican pollster Tony Fabrizio announced at the conference in Washington held by the American Conservative Union. The others on the ballot finished far behind.

The straw poll covers more than preference for president. It also asks questions about issues. Fabrizio said the No. 1 concern of participants in the straw poll was " the size of government and the role government has in your life."

One question asked participants to choose among three statements to represent their "core beliefs and ideology."

Eighty-four percent chose "My most important goal is to promote individual freedom by reducing the size and scope of government and its intrusion into the lives of citizens."

Nine percent selected "My most important goal is to promote traditional values by protecting traditional marriage and protecting the life of the unborn."

And 6 percent chose "My most important goal is to secure and guarantee American safety at home and abroad regardless of the cost or the size of government."

Beware the Bear.

Register Guard.M

If you drive in Oregon in the next couple of weeks beware.  Thanks to largess of the federal government Oregon will put more officers on the road to encourage traffic safety.

The Eugene Police Department is among the agencies that will participate in the statewide effort. Its officers plan to focus on enforcing speed and safety belt laws.

Eugene police say officers also will keep their eyes peeled for drivers who use cell phones while behind the wheel as well as those who fail to follow the state’s “move over” law.

That law requires motorists to change lanes whenever they encounter an emergency vehicle or roadside assistance vehicle stopped alongside the road with its emergency lights flashing. Drivers who cannot safely move over must slow to at least 5 mph below the posted speed limit.

The increased patrols are scheduled to begin Monday and continue through Sunday, Feb. 20.
