“I would expect that the ATF wouldn’t get robbed, that they would have security measures,” he said. “Maybe I watch too many movies. You would think it would be hard to rob an ATF operation.”
Turns out, the ATF has weapons stolen or loses them more frequently than the public might think, according to a 2008 report from the Office of the Inspector General with the U.S. Department of Justice.
In a five-year span from 2002-’07, for example, 76 ATF weapons were stolen, lost or missing, according to the report. That’s nearly double the number compared with the FBI and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, when considering rates per 1,000 agents.
Why is the ATF trying to run drug buys?
How long before someone in Washington tells us the Broken Window Fallacy …. that consumers having to buy new and replacement parts for their vehicles is ‘good for the economy’?
‘Look America, a puppy’
Bob, Bob, Bob,
Didn’t you learn from the SS in Columbia? If you are going to hire a ‘Lady of Negotiable Affections’, pay the agreed rate. Do not short change the deal. It cost more in the long run. Oh yea, and that internet thing–word gets around these days.
“Each woman told this reporter that Menendez had agreed to pay them $500 for sex but only paid them $100.”
No good deed goes unpunished.

A good idea and proposal. Add this to the mix: https://clevernicknames.wordpress.com/2012/12/31/a-simple-idea-to-change-the-house-of-representatives-via-random-selection/
and what could happen in DC?
This should be just dandy, Andy.
“..Anna Wintour, the Vogue editor in contention to be Barack Obama’s next ambassador to Britain”
Ahhh, yes. Nothing qualifies you more, to be a US Ambassador, like editing a ‘Fahh-shion’ magazine. (And pulling in 500k for reelection.)
“One of the city’s biggest challenges is its complex set of labor agreements with a whopping 48 bargaining units that represent most of the city’s workforce.”
Gee, ya’ think?
‘I have a lot of friends who are …..umm…uhhhhhh…gun firers.’
Well, this will make for strange uniform allowances.
“..the doctors say that the problem occurs because the battalion repeatedly slaps the left side of their chests with their rifles during drills. The practice causes the soldiers’ glands to stimulate hormones on that side only, causing breasts on just the left side of the body.”
The old joke goes: “Doctor, it hurts when I go like that.”
“Then, don’t go like that.”
Amazing technology. Frightening possibility of privacy invasion.
Stop for a moment.
We live in amazing times, people.
A blink of time, back to 1847, and Ignaz Semmelweis had a theory of contagious disease (rejected by medical ‘establishment’) that reduced hospital childbirth mortality by ~ 900%
“I think when she’s off dope she’s probably a pretty good person,” he said. “I believe now, as I did then, that in the penitentiary, Kim would be absolutely no danger to anyone.”
Really? Perhaps you can take her board as a half-way house. No? Didn’t think so.
Evidence showed that McCarthy called Booth to borrow a cup of sugar. When she came to pick it up, McCarthy attacked Booth, including forcing the woman’s hand to a chopping block so she could cut off her finger to remove her wedding ring.
Information worth knowing.
