Dick Durbin: Not Sure Bloggers Deserve 1st Amendment Rights

Dick Durbin Says Constitution (1st Amendment) Is Out of Date

Opinion by AAABTonto:

This man is dangerous. He has NO comprehension of the numero uno item on the Bill of Rights–the document he swore an oath to uphold and defend?! Or does he? I am quickly running out of patience with this kind of belligerent audacity. The arrogant bastard is talking about ME and YOU!

“But here is the bottom line–the media shield law, which I am prepared to support, and I know Sen. Graham supports, still leaves an unanswered question, which I have raised many times: What is a journalist today in 2013? We know it’s someone that works for Fox or AP, but does it include a blogger? Does it include someone who is tweeting? Are these people journalists and entitled to constitutional protection? We need to ask 21st century questions about a provision in our Constitution that was written over 200 years ago”

WE DON’T HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE CRITICAL OF THE POLITICIANS WE ELECTED? He REALLY believes we are too stupid to be critical of their actions … I have to stop. I am about to stoop to their level and begin to say things that would be inappropriate … God help us …

“There are none so blind as those who will not see. The most deluded people are those who choose to ignore what they already know.”Jonathan Swift, ‘Polite Conversation’ (1738).

These saying has it roots in the Bible:

“Hear now this, O foolish people, and without understanding; which have eyes, and see not; which have ears, and hear not.” – (Jeremiah 5:21, King James version)


The Insanity of Liberals: Islamic Denial

Unbelievable …

MSNBC Host Compares Gitmo Inmates to American Slaves

Opinion by AAABTonto:

You have got to be kidding me … is there NOTHING that liberals understand?

MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry compared Guantanamo Bay detainees to American slaves during the 19th century. Responding to the hunger strike by the Guantanamo detainees, she said, “This is the time to reaffirm our Americanness.”

This is another demonstration of the insanity of liberals. They will never understand  that evil exists and that you cannot make friends with those who are determined to kill you because their God told them to do so. I would recommend a visit to an Islamic country. Let’s start up a travel fund and send this glittering jewel of stupidity off to the Islamic country of her choice and let her experience Muslim hospitality first hand. Let her research the rights of women under the auspices of Islam–the religion of peace.


The liberals are going to sleep walk right through the gates of hell and into the arms Sharia. I don’t believe that there is any way to convince them of their gullible, vulnerable, narcissistic vanity–it is going to be their undoing and they may drag the rest of us along with them. Not even the savage stabbing and beheading of an off duty British soldier seems to convince them.


Prime Minister David Cameron Meets with COBRA to Discuss Woolwich Attack

Prime Minister David Cameron is a fool in utter denial. Islam IS THE REASON that this kind of savagery is perpetrated. The sooner that this fact is realized and dealt with the sooner we will find ourselves moving toward sanity and return this world-gone-mad closer to a civilized state.

Jihad Returns to London: A Reply to Prime Minister David Cameron

You heard David Wood mention the name Anjem Choudary. Who is this Anjem Choudary? Let’s find out, shall we? Woolwich Attacker Michael Adebolajo was one of Anjem Choudary’s followers or “understudies,” if you will.

Anjem Choudary on Newsnight Discussing Michael Adebolajo & Woolwich Beheading of Lee Rigby

Anjem Choudary has learned the liberal tactic of talking over one’s critics quite well. He will hear NOTHING that challenges his morality–because HE IS SUPERIOR to those quizzical infidels in the above video, who are badgering him about not finding it within himself to condemn the Woolich killing. This is evil and it is as plain as day. One needs only the courage to accept it; unless of course, that one tiny acknowledgement of the truth will will cause the rest of your fragile, fictitious existence to come crumbling down about you?

B 17 Sentimental Journey-2

B-17 Take-off and Landing (Sentimental Journey)

*   *   *

By AAABTonto:

This past Friday night I had just awoke (as many of you know I work 3rd shift) and I was evaluating what I was going to accomplish with my extended holiday weekend when the phone rang. Upon answering I discovered it was my good friend, Neal. Neal and I used to race go-karts together and have been friends since sometime in 1985 when we met at a karting event. We often traveled together to share racing expenses and new each other for several years before we discovered that, in addition to being fellow karting enthusiasts, we were both amateur WWII airplane historian/fanatics and enjoyed constructing scale models of that era’s vintage war-birds.

Neal is also very mechanically inclined person, building go-kart engines, repairing his own farm machinery and restoring cars. On visit to Arizona to see his brother in the late 80’s he visited the then “Confederate Air Force” whose Arizona wing operated out of Phoenix. He decided to join the group and when he would visit his brother there, he would spend his days helping restore authentic WWII aircraft while his brother was at work. Neal figured if he could build plastic replicas of aircraft, why not work on reconstructing the real thing. He excelled at this and was so effective that group awarded Neal with the opportunity to be a crewman with the touring B-17 bomber, “Sentimental Journey’–an honor that normally took a minimum of two years to earn. Neal was so thrilled by this that he also began to take flying lessons.

So in mid May of 1993 Neal drove from Ohio to my house here in Indianapolis and I drove him to the airport. He boarded his scheduled flight to Kansas City where he would meet up with the touring bomber. His part of the tour was about two weeks in length and they would hop-scotch their way back across the Midwest going from airshow to airshow until his final destination in Marion, Indiana, where I would pick him up.

Now Neal is a character, he is one of those guys that just grows on you and you can’t help but like his dry sense of humor and common sense manner. He was well liked by his fellow crewman, who knew that Neal had taken up flying lessons and the pilot had decided that Neal was worthy of one more reward. On the next to last leg of the tour, which flew from Burlington, Iowa to Columbus, Indiana, Neal was allowed to fly copilot! It was the thrill of a lifetime and privilege that Neal cherishes to this day.

The captain even filled out Neal’s first flight log book entry with the proper information to authenticate his accomplishment. This turned out to be a humorous thing when Neal returned to Ohio to continue his flying lessons. While sitting on the runway in a tiny Cessna and about to take his first actual “flight lesson” (after completing ground school), his instructor asked Neal for his log book so he could show him how to fill it out correctly. Upon opening it he found the first already completed as co-pilot time behind the yoke of a four engine WWII bomber–his instructor almost fell out of the plane!

Neal had called me this past Friday night to tell that that had all been 20 years ago … amazing how time flies–pardon the pun.

Neal went on to earn his wings and became a licensed single engine pilot. Not long after that Sard and I visited him at his farm. Sard’s grandfather was a flight engineer on a B-17 and was shot down over Memmingen, Germany. Sard wrote an article about it, which is posted at TRP:

Memorial Day Tribute: My Granddad

Neal took us down to his local airstrip where he treated us to an aerial tour of western Ohio (in a Cessna) and I got fly as co-pilot. It wasn’t my first time in the right hand seat–I have about 6 to 8 hours of right-seat time in single engine planes, but I never took any formal lessons. I love flying, though; there is just something inexplicably invigorating about flying smaller propeller driven aircraft. It is vastly different than a ride in a jet airliner. The ground is closer and you can feel the the things the plane is doing to negotiate the atmosphere. You see the earth below in a whole new perspective that, for me anyway, puts life into its proper scale.

The Confederate Air Force is now called the “Commemorative Ar Force” and I imagine that most of the WWII veterans that took such a liking to Neal have passed on; but their stories and the memories of their accomplishments should never be forgotten. They were ordinary people, who did extraordinary things because they had to–they were proud to do so and yet humble. War veterans rarely speak of their experiences and when they do it is time to shut up and listen.

I will never stop fighting to keep what they fought so valiantly for alive. I will always look up to them and as long as I live I will praise them for their bravery and selflessness. We could really use some bravery and selflessness in our government today. God bless America and I wish you all a blessed Memorial day.
