Obama vows to go after gun rights; Wants ‘fundamental change’ to America

http://twitter.com/#!/GraceLambA/status/285388939756441601

Something fundamental has to change? Like that pesky Constitution?

Obama on guns: “Something fundamental has to change.” I think that’s code for “We’re going after the Constitution.”

President Obama had a busy morning during an interview on “Meet the Press”: He blamed the death of four Americans in Benghazi on “sloppiness,” and called democracy “messy.” But that wasn’t all! He also did some ghoulish politicizing of the Newtown tragedy. Lapdog David Gregory provides the swoon-filled commentary.

When Obama says in the #MTP interview “something fundamental has to change” re guns…well, that doesn’t sound like tweaking, does it?

— Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) December 30, 2012

Nope, not tweaking. He’s making gun-grabbing a priority.

Built this: Crumb and Get It owner said no to Biden event, introduces Ryan

http://twitter.com/#!/Rebecca_CBSNJ/status/238261802083950594

As Twitchy reported last week, Chris McMurray, owner of Crumb and Get It bakery, turned down an offer to host a Biden visit. Why did the owner of a newly established bakery turn down such an offer? In his own words: “Very simply, ‘you didn’t build that.’”

Today, Chris McMurray introduced GOP vice presidential candidate Rep. Paul Ryan in Roanoke, Va.

Yahoo sues Facebook for patent infringement

http://twitter.com/#!/latimes/status/179409015695097856

L.A. Times:

It’s a patent war: Yahoo sues Facebook for infringement

Yahoo Inc., the onetime online advertising juggernaut dethroned by Facebook Inc., is suing the social networking giant over 10 patents that include ways to advertise on the Web.

The lawsuit filed in San Jose federal court Monday marks the first major patent battle in social networking. It comes as Facebook prepares to go public this spring in one of the most hotly anticipated stock market debuts in years.

In a statement, Yahoo said it is confident it will prevail.

“Yahoo has invested substantial resources in research and development through the years, which has resulted in numerous patented inventions of technology that other companies have licensed,” a spokesman said in an emailed statement. “Unfortunately, the matter with Facebook remains unresolved, and we are compelled to seek redress in federal court.”

A Facebook spokesman accused Yahoo of turning on a business ally and said it would vigorously defend itself.

“We’re disappointed that Yahoo, a longtime business partner of Facebook and a company that has substantially benefited from its association with Facebook, has decided to resort to litigation,” the spokesman said in an emailed statement.

Chick-fil-A opponents now impersonating company, retweeting fake quote

http://twitter.com/#!/intoitoverit/status/230025495780159489

What constitutes a violation of Twitter’s terms of service and what passes as parody remains a mystery to most of us. However, fake retweets are bad business all around. The fake tweet above obviously isn’t from the folks at Chick-fil-A, but that hasn’t stopped nearly 170 people so far from retweeting it.

https://twitter.com/saidbylauren/status/230068972882632705

Uncovering Chick-fil-A’s legitimate statement on the company’s views isn’t difficult.

Our mission is to create raving fans; we plan to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the political arena. http://t.co/eab3IDXa

— Chick-fil-A, Inc. (@ChickfilA) July 19, 2012

The Chick-fil-A culture and service tradition in our restaurants is to treat every person with honor, dignity and respect – regardless of their belief, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender. We will continue this tradition in the over 1,600 Restaurants run by independent Owner/Operators. Going forward, our intent is to leave the policy debate over same-sex marriage to the government and political arena.

In the meantime, is it too much to ask that Chick-fil-A be allowed to speak for itself in the debate? Or are the company’s opponents too chicken?

AFP Michigan demanding justice after union thug violence, will press charges

http://twitter.com/#!/jmlefler/status/279315848081059840

Scott Hagerstrom, director of Americans for Prosperity’s Michigan chapter, led a press conference this afternoon to denounce union goons’ despicable conduct earlier this week.

Maybe he’s an associate of this jackass:

Americans for Prosperity is holding a presser at 2:30 demanding “justice”. For their tent. Aye, aye, aye #saveMI link: is.gd/WgYjwC

— Chris Savage (@Eclectablog) December 13, 2012

No, tool. This isn’t about justice for a tent; it’s about justice for innocent men and women who were verbally and physically assaulted merely for exercising their right to free speech and assembly. Union thugs may not think much of accountability, but Hagerstrom and AFP are absolutely right to demand it.

“We are calling on union leaders, Mayor @vbernero, and others to condemn this sort of violence and intimidation.” bit.ly/Sjl3Nm

— AFP-Michigan (@AFPMichigan) December 13, 2012

Mayor Bernero was so busy gushing over the “beautiful” thugs who descended on downtown Lansing, he forgot to look out for his constituents:

Hagerstrom announced that he has filed a police report and intends to press charges.

— AFP-Michigan (@AFPMichigan) December 13, 2012

Horrible.

Hagerstrom also revealed that numerous 911 calls had been placed while the assaults were taking place, but no calls were returned and there has so far been no follow-up:

“Why were 911 calls ignored? Why was there no follow-up? This need to be investigated.” @followscott #AFPMI #RTW

— AFP-Michigan (@AFPMichigan) December 13, 2012

Absolutely.

Other victims of vicious thuggery stood up to give accounts of what happened to them:

“What happened on Tuesday was not a dialogue, it was a monologue.” #RTW #SaveMI

— AFP-Michigan (@AFPMichigan) December 13, 2012

She also called on the media to do its job and report the truth. Fat chance of that, unfortunately.

Clint Tarver, who watched his hot dog stand get destroyed as racial epithets were hurled at him, spoke up as well:

Clint Tarver: “I was here to do a job… They called me ‘Uncle Tom’ & the n-word… My equipment was destroyed.” #RTW ow.ly/i/1fby2

Stu Sandler: “We went through the proper legal channels to reserve our space on the Capitol lawn.” #RTW #SaveMI

— AFP-Michigan (@AFPMichigan) December 13, 2012

It’s the anti-right-to-work protesters who broke the law. But will they be punished? According to activist Tim Bos, not unless something changes. He described feeling helpless as police looked on while the assaults took place:

Tim Bos: “Cops saw these assaults on free Americans by other Americans, and did nothing.” #RTW #SaveMI

— AFP-Michigan (@AFPMichigan) December 13, 2012

Tim Bos: “Is this America?” #RTW #SaveMI #NoRTWMI

— AFP-Michigan (@AFPMichigan) December 13, 2012

It’s certainly becoming more difficult to recognize. Thankfully, pro-freedom advocates like those at AFP are bravely willing to take a stand against tyranny and for our American principles. AFP has done its job when it comes to protecting citizens; it’s time for Mayor Bernero and the city of Lansing to step up and do theirs.

What He Made With Some Slabs Of Cypress Will Seriously Impress You

Redditor GooberMcNutly passes a cypress sawmill on his way to work every day. While that might sound pretty unexciting to you, just wait…

When he finally made time to go in during their business hours, he took three unique rounds home with him. We’re getting ahead of ourselves, though, because “rounds” when it comes to cypress trees aren’t really round at all.

Using that fact to his advantage, he decided to make the slabs of wood into unique end tables. You’ll be dying for one in your own living room when you see the finished products!

The rounds came home with him looking like this.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

Saw marks and dryness left much to be desired.

Using an electric sander and sandpaper, he smoothed the surfaces out.

What a difference that made!

Then it was time to remove the bark. Some came off on its own, other pieces had to be coaxed with a chisel and hammer.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI1_BTF’); });

In an effort to reinforce the slabs, he wanted to attach mirrored plywood pieces on the bottoms. He traced the outlines on construction paper first.

Then, he rearranged the cutouts on plywood.

A jigsaw did the job.

He then cropped them down and angled the edges so that you wouldn’t be able to see the plywood from the top of the table.

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCI2_BTF’); });

GooberMcNutly used epoxy to adhere the surfaces to one another and screwed them together, too.

Wanting to seal up holes and imperfections, GooberMcNutly carefully taped off and poured epoxy in.

Finally, a number of layers of epoxy gave the tabletops a beautiful sheen.

Some carefully positioned IKEA legs were attached and these end tables were finished!

So. Pretty. Must…have.

32 Tattoo Fails So Tragically Embarrassing That These People Should Never Go Outside Again.

Getting a tattoo should be serious business (and not something young, drunk people should do at 2am). You’re permanently altering your body. For life. Forever. In fact, there are many people out there who should probably avoid getting tattoos altogether. Unfortunately, these 32 people made a few very bad decisions and ended up with some awful misspelled tattoos. The worst part? They have no idea.

1.) I have a feeling he got “frunk” when he was drunk.

2.) This IS a tragedy.

3.) No one makes this mistake, though.

4.) … and how you use “your.”

5.) Love doesn’t “concur” anything.

6.) The imposs… what?

7.) Ugh, that witch is the worst, right?

8.) This misspelling lives on.

9.) “Loose hope” sounds like a medical condition.

10.) EXTREME FAIL?

11.) One day they’ll realize what “itself” is.

12.) You can’t spell, either.

13.) Mmm. Fudge.

14.) In their defense, maybe they beat up someone named Hart.

15.) Who is this “Tomarrow” and why don’t they ever know?

16.) He didn’t have enough fingers for “you’re.”

17.) And strength.

18.) Except for maybe this.

19.) At first I thought “y’all” was the mistake. Nope.

20.) A drive-thru, maybe?

21.) Be live. Not dead?

22.) I’m sure you are.

23.) LOLOLOLOL. No.

24.) Never twos or threes.

25.) First, there’s the misspelling. Then there’s that creepy peppermint (?). Hold me.

26.) That’s okay, then. English isn’t your native language.

27.) He may want to grow out his hair…

28.) I assure you, we’re all judging you.

29.) Umm, huh?

30.) I can’t even count the reasons this was a bad idea.

31.) I life all of the time, what are you talking about?

32.) No, the strongest drug is what you were on when you got this.

(H/T Complex & Telegraph) Hopefully these people don’t mind wearing long-sleeved shirts for the rest of their lives. Because… ouch. Lesson of the day: if you’re going to get a tattoo, run it through a spell checker first. Or better yet, don’t get it at all.

13 Unexpected Moisturizing Tips To Get You Through Winter

Condition your leg hair and put on some lotion jeans. ‘Cuz it’s been a long, hard winter.

1. Treat your dry skin like pound cake.

Crisco is occlusive, which means it covers your skin and locks the moisture in like a seal. In the words of a Crisco user, “This is like a very expensive body butter, that left you broke and only able to afford cucumber sandwiches for weeks. But it’s Crisco. Moisturizes for hours like nobodies [sic] business.”

2. Splurge on silk or satin pillowcases.

San-X / Via san-x.co.jp

Cotton pillowcases may be making your hair thirsty. So, swap out your pillowcase for silk or satin. They also have the added bonus of preventing wrinkles for side and stomach sleepers.

3. Shed your scales.

Dead skin cells block moisturizer from absorbing. Try using a body brush once or twice a week with a body scrub (awesome homemade recipe here) to help rid your old skin.

4. Reexamine your vices.

Asmik Ace Entertainment

 

It might hurt to hear, but alcohol and caffeine both dry your skin. They are diuretics, which keep you from retaining water. If you have immense self-control, try abstaining for the sake of your winter skin.

5. Use moo-juice for gentler exfoliation.

Shutterstock

Cleopatra supposedly did it. So, make like the queen of the Nile, and add some milk to your bath. Milk contains lactic acid, which sloughs off your dead skin and promotes collagen growth. Use whole milk for the best results. There are multiple milk bath recipes found online, but here’s a great one.

6. Coat your hair in delicious fruit.

 

Look no further than your kitchen to treat dry hair. The nutrients in bananas and avocado are excellent moisturizing agents. Blend olive oil, a ripe banana, and avocado together UNTIL SMOOTH (or you’ll be picking chunks for days) and slather all over your clean hair. Leave in for 30 minutes before rinsing it out.

7. Tell your bathwater to quit sucking…moisture.

Shutterstock

Chlorine is sometimes added to tap water to disinfect, but it dries you out. Never fear, chlorine-busting bath balls and shower head filters are here. For a natural remedy, try using bentonite clay in your bath, which absorbs impurities.

8. Embrace stickiness.

Walt Disney Productions / Via deliciousanimatedfood.tumblr.com

Honey is a fantastic humectant, which is the kind of moisturizer that absorbs water from air and binds it to skin, and has anti-microbial properties. Use it as a face mask to banish dry skin. Check out a super easy recipe here.

9. Check if your hormones are out of whack.

Shutterstock

In rare cases of extreme dryness and scaly skin, you may want to get your thyroid checked out. Usually, hypothyroidism is accompanied by other symptoms, so if you suspect something, don’t internet doctor it. Get it checked out professionally.

10. Bottoms up your beer for better hair.

Catherine Zeta-Jones has famously deployed this method to keep hair glossy and moisturized. Beer has been said to improve the quality of your tresses as the proteins in beer smooth hair and the nutrients keep it healthy-looking. So go head, and crack a cold one.

11. Go nuts for coconuts.

Coconut oil is basically a real-life miracle. It has been touted endlessly as a brilliant hair conditioner, moisturizer, etc. Basically, all this talk means you should probably just live in a coconut oil pool. Kidding. But this winter, think about investing in a jar of extra virgin coconut oil.

12. Make hair conditioner do double duty.

Nickelodeon / Via reddit.com

Put down the shaving cream and shave with hair conditioner. The benefits are twofold: You moisturize while shaving and you exfoliate when shaving. Shaving also exfoliates the skin, so you absorb moisture better.

13. Pull on some…jeans?

Wrangler / Via wrangler-europe.com

To counter the drying effect of denim, Wrangler released a line of denim that is lined with various moisturizing oils and butters. They claim to leave legs feeling “silky smooth.”

Remember, kids:

Paramount Pictures / Via weusedtoplayoutside.tumblr.com

Winter isn’t fun for your skin and hair. So, stay moisturized.
