Dancing Chilean Firefighters
The first fire department in Achao, Chile is made up of a group of brave volunteers who are always ready to gear up and fight fires. It turns out they also happen to be pretty brave when it comes to their dance moves. The firefighters showed off their sense of humor and teamed up to make this music video of them in full gear dancing to “Soy Tu Nene Malo” by Nene Malo. Skip to 1:45 to watch them break it down Chilean style.

Debunking The Republican Liars – How Republicans Will Govern – The War On Women Didn’t Go Away – ‘Another Idiot From The ‘Show Me’ State Can Only Show Us Another Moronic ‘Legitimate Rape’ Bill’

brattin war on women1

‘Missouri state representative Rick Brattin’ :

“When a man goes in for that procedure [a vasectomy]—at least in the state of Missouri—you have to have a consent form from your spouse in order to have that procedure done. … Here I was getting a normal procedure that has nothing to do with another human being’s life, and I needed to get a signed form. … But on ending a life, you don’t. I think that’s pretty twisted.”

  • Well that’s not right. Oh. It’s a lie…..

There is no such law requiring a wife’s prior consent for her husband’s vasectomy’.
‘Missouri state representative Rick Brattin’ :

‘No abortion should be allowed within the state unless the father gives his written consent except in cases of “legitimate rape.”

‘Naturally, Brattin wants to distinguish his use of the term “legitimate rape” from that used by that other well-known Missouri representative, Todd Akin’.

‘Brattin, in trying to explain his position, said':

“I’m just saying if there was a legitimate rape, you’re going to make a police report, just as if you were robbed. … That’s just common sense.”

‘Under the Brattin plan':

“[Y]ou have to take steps to show that you were raped. … And I’d think you’d be able to prove that.”

‘Brattin, a 34-year-old father of five, ignores the fact that less than one-half of all rapes are reported to police and that the conviction rate is much lower, less than five percent’.

“All it takes is one good guy with a gun…..” – ‘Federal Court Stands Up For Gun Rights For People Who Have Been ‘Committed To a Mental Institution’

gun nuts13

Oh thank goodness he’s all better now so he can have a gun………

‘A panel of three Republican members of the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit held that a man who was previously “committed to a mental institution,” might nonetheless be allowed to have a gun, despite a federal ban on firearm possession by such individuals’.

It should be noted that ‘following his commitment, however, Tyler rejoined the workforce and remarried, and he has not experienced another “depressive episode.”

It should also be noted that ‘in a moment of extreme emotional stress, he became so agitated that he was determined to be a threat to himself and others’.

And at the time Tyler was committed his ‘daughters “became scared and contacted the police,” and a state court later found that Tyler could be “reasonably expected within the near future to intentionally or unintentionally seriously physically injure [himself] or others, and has engaged in an act or acts or made significant threats that are substantially supportive of the expectation.”

In My Backyard – What Republicans Are Told – ‘Washington sheriff backs deputy who said cops need military hardware to fight right-wing extremists’

right wing militias

right wing militias1

Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho IS home to a bunch of fringe ‘constitutional’ freaks and they are very, very well armed.

I’m not a real big fan of Ozzie’s but he is right and while the MRAP’s might not be needed in a place like Ferguson, the Pacific Northwest has a long, log history of radical militias and today the openly train to ‘take over’ when the SHTF (sh*t hits the fan).

The ‘new’ right wing ‘patriots’.

Rather then step up and work together to solve our problems – wait until there is chaos and then be a ‘patriot’ and walk in shooting.

These are the people that the Republican Party opened it’s doors too.

‘Real’ Americans al la Sarah Palin.

What Republican fringe freaks are told :

‘Shock Video: Police Prepare For War With Gun Owners, Preppers And Constitutionalists’ -

And what actually happens in the real World -
‘Sheriff Knezovich Addresses “Hatemongering” Article by InfoWars’

‘Spokane County Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich tried to grapple with the fallout after one of his deputies said something in a video that was picked up and became a viral hit at InfoWars, the website of conspiracy enthusiast Alex Jones. In the video clip, the deputy said military-grade equipment was necessary because of gun-hoarding “constitutionalists” who have made police work dangerous’.

‘The woman interviewing the deputy asked about the need for a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle in America, to which the deputy replied, “We’ve got a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition. They have weapons here locally.”

‘Republican representative Matthew Shea (A real jerk) disagreed, asking “Will law abiding citizens who love the Constitution and Rule of Law be hunted down with MRAPs? Constitutionalism is fundamental to being an American. To hate the Constitution and those who support it means you are a traitor to this country.”

“This is spitting in the face of all those heroes that fought, bled, and died so we might live free,” he added’.

‘In his YouTube response, Sheriff Knezovich noted that the deputy being questioned in the video is not only himself a military veteran, but has been awarded the Medal of Valor’.

“Why [are] only three seconds of that interview being shown by InfoWars?” Sheriff Knezovich also asked. “Since this interview was on December 7th, and InfoWars didn’t reach out until December 12th at 9:39 p.m., is why didn’t they bother to try to take a chance and try contact the Sheriff’s Office during operation hours. They contacted Rep. Matt Shea — so why not talk to the Sheriff before running the story?”

“Apparently,” Knezovich continued, “It wasn’t that hot of a story if they waited a week” to publish it. “For InfoWars and Alex Jones, this is standing operating procedure — they only give you what fits their agenda.”

teabagger ALert!! – ‘It Was A Library Berate, The Kind You Find In A Second-Hand State’

stupid teabaggers1

stupid teabaggers

‘The Tea Party of Kentucky will not be satisfied until the Bluegrass State is a smoking wreck of stupidity, and their next target is to destroy county library systems across the state with a massive lawsuit that, if successful, would force libraries to refund millions in tax dollars to taxpayers and shut their doors thanks to a 50-year old law’.

  • ‘Most of the state’s public library systems could be forced to roll back their tax rates and collectively refund millions of dollars to local taxpayers under a pair of lawsuits heard Monday by the Kentucky Court of Appeals’.

‘The suits, filed by taxpayers in Kenton and Campbell counties, argue that many library districts have improperly raised taxes for decades without the 51 percent voter approval required by a previously obscure 1964 state law’.

“We the people own the library. Every dollar spent in that library comes from us. So we should have a voice,” said Charlie Coleman, a Tea Party activist elected last month as a Campbell County commissioner’.

‘Circuit judges in Northern Kentucky sided with the plaintiffs in April 2013. The Kenton and Campbell county libraries appealed, warning of calamitous budget cuts if the suits succeeded’.

‘Making their case Monday, the libraries’ attorneys said a separate law, House Bill 44, enacted in 1979, was meant to include most libraries among the special taxing districts that are allowed to raise taxes by an amount that increases revenue up to 4 percent each year without voter approval. Libraries were advised to follow HB 44 by state revenue officials in Frankfort’.

“No one objected to this for 30 years. Not one member of the General Assembly said to a library district, ‘Hey, you’re doing this the wrong way!'” Jeffrey Mando, attorney for the Campbell County library, told the three-judge appellate panel’.

“To now say to the libraries, ‘You’ve gotta go back …’ That would be devastating,” Mando said. “More than a 50 percent funding loss for the Campbell County library system. An equal or greater funding loss for other libraries around the state. And these library districts did nothing but operate in good faith.”

‘It doesn’t matter. Government that works has to be government that is destroyed’.

‘Forget the fact that libraries are links to continuing education and internet access for the poor in the state, that’s exactly why they have to be shut down’.

‘And yes, these people are looking to destroy Kentucky’s libraries over a technicality, and they’ll get the judges to sign off on it’.

‘So when libraries across the state are shut down, it’ll be a victory for the people, right’?

‘Stupid poor people, get your own access to information and stop being poor’!
