SPEECHLESS: Its Now Illegal to Barbeque in Florida … UNREAL, Pinellas County, Florida Man Cited for Allowing Smoke from Grill to Go on Neighbor’s Property


This country is truly lost its way when it is the governments business and its against the law to grill in your back yard on your own private property. WATCH the VIDEO below and you will be stunned that a Florida government official actually had the audacity to cite a resident for get this, allowing the smoke from his grill as he was barbequing to go onto his neighbors property. Yes, you read that correctly. It is actually illegal and a stupid Pinellas County, Florida code to allow the smoke from your grill to waft into the wind and flow over to your neighbors property. WTF!!! One would think that this was an episode of ‘Candid Camera’ or ‘Punked,’ but sadly this was not the case. The county official actually said with a straight face, “You’re allowed to have it smell on your property. So that doesn’t count but when I’m on the street that’s when it counts.”

The official says: ‘I’m only here because of the odour, I’m only here because of the smoke.’

The jobsworth then says he has taken pictures of the barbecue smoke: ‘I can smell it, I can smell it right now, but I’m on your property.

‘You’re allowed to have it smell on your property. So that doesn’t count but when I’m on the street that’s when it counts.’

I am starting a new movement, BLACK BARBEQUERS MATTER, sarcasm intended. Although this is not racism that has caused this ridiculous situation, it is the result of an over-intrusive, out of control government that thinks they have the right to pass BS ordinances like this and individuals in this country that are just nothing more than a pain in the ass that will find a reason to bitch, moan and complain about anything. What’s the matter, wasn’t there a 6 year old child selling lemonade from their driveway available to harass?

The Daily Mail:

‘I’m only here because of the odor, I’m only here because of the smoke,’ the official says the clip.

The resident tells the official that it’s only a barbecue and that most residents in the street ‘cook out’.

The official alludes to the fact one of the man’s neighbors had complained about the smell he was producing.

Then the official says: ‘Frankly, today, I can smell it, I can smell it again right now, but I’m on your property.

‘You’re allowed to have it smell on your property, so that doesn’t count, but when I’m on the street, that’s when it counts.’

The official finishes up by saying that the barbecue smoke, by a rule in force in Pinellas County, cannot cross their property line, Opposing Views reported.

The Pinellas County website states in its environmental section: ‘Commercial barbecue cookers are not exempt from causing a nuisance odor. If a sufficient number of complaints, representing different households, are reported and an Inspector witnesses the problem, they can issue a Warning Letter.’

Liberal Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro to Give Tax Break for Voluntarily Turning in High-Powered Assault Rifles

What else would you expect from an idiot liberal Democrat … Libs continue their assault on the Second Amendment.

Liberal Connecticut Democrat Rep. Rosa DeLauro has introduced legislation that would pay gun owners with tax breaks for voluntarily turning in their assault rifles. What’s this, another cash for clunkers program? I can see it now, criminals handing over their old and out-dated assault rifles, getting tax payer dollars and going out and buying new and better assault weapons. Just another non-thought out, knew-jerk reaction by liberals to a terrible crime. DeLauro originally introduced the bill in 2013 following the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT in December 2012. The legislation failed, but it looks like she is bringing it back again. However, this bill would most likely just fund criminals with better weapons on the tax payer’s dime. Brilliant.

Rosa Delaura made the following comment, spoken like a typical liberal, who has never used a gun and has no  respect for the Second Amendment,  “Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense,” DeLauro said. “There is no reason on earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for a battlefield.”


Gun owners would receive tax breaks for voluntarily turning in high-powered assault rifles under new legislation proposed Monday.

The Support Assault Firearm Elimination and Education of our (SAFER) Streets Act expected to be reintroduced next week by Rep. Rosa DeLauro (D-Conn.) would provide gun owners with an incentive to turn in their firearms to local police departments.

“Assault weapons are not about hunting, or even self-defense,” DeLauro said. “There is no reason on earth, other than to kill as many people as possible in as short a time as possible, that anyone needs a gun designed for a battlefield.”

Though DeLauro is in favor of stronger guns laws that would completely ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition, she emphasized this bill would not force gun owners to turn in their firearms.

The legislation would provide up to $2,000 in tax credits for gun owners who voluntarily hand over assault weapons to their local police departments.

Insatpundit has a better idea, pay welfare recipients $2000 to be sterilized instead and word the legislation identically like this cash for guns bill.

Barack Hussain Obama, The Most Uninformed President Ever …. Claims He Learned of Hillary Clinton Used a Private, Nongovernment Email Account as Secretary of State Through News Reports


From the most transparent presidency ever comes yet another scandal, this time its Hillary email-gate. Barack Obama was asked by Bill Plant of CBS News in a sit down interview when was the first time he learned that Hillary Clinton was using an email system outside the US government for official business while she was Secretary of State? Obama’s response, more BS … “Ah, the sane time everybody else learned it through news reports“. Seriously Mr. Obama, is that your final answer? Let me just say this … YOU ARE A LIAR! We are supposed to believe that Barack Obama, the most tech savvy president ever, never received an email from Hillary Clinton from her private email account for official business? REALLY? No one believes that. You mean the tech savvy Obama doesn’t know that a government account ends in .gov? But then again, the Obama presidency is the most transparent ever, because the Liar is Chief says so. Are we really supposed to believe that if there was no news outlets, Obama would know nothing?

President Barack Obama said it was through news reports that he first learned that Hillary Rodham Clinton used a private, nongovernment email account while serving as his secretary of state.

In an interview Saturday with CBS News, Obama said he’s glad that Clinton has instructed that those emails about official business be disclosed. He also maintained that his administration remains the most transparent ever.

Clinton has drawn criticism for using a private server during the four years she was the nation’s top diplomat. Her sidestepping official government email also raises questions about whether all pertinent messages have been preserved as well as turned over for congressional investigations and lawsuits.


President Obama only learned of Hillary Clinton’s private email address use for official State Department business after a New York Times report, he told CBS News in an interview.

CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante asked Mr. Obama when he learned about her private email system after his Saturday appearance in Selma, Alabama.

“The same time everybody else learned it through news reports,” the president told Plante.

Mr. Obama’s comments follow a long week of media scrutiny surrounding Hillary Clinton’s private email address and the “home-brewed” server that hosted it.

“The policy of my administration is to encourage transparency, which is why my emails, the BlackBerry I carry around, all those records are available and archived,” Mr. Obama said. “I’m glad that Hillary’s instructed that those emails about official business need to be disclosed.”

Barack Obama is either the biggest and most pathetic liar we have ever had the misfortune as having as President of the United States or he is the stupidest, most uniformed and laziest one. Take your pick America. Barack Obama is telling us once again that he just learned about the latest scandal during his presidency regarding Hillary Clinton using private email account and server from the media. Sound familiar, as Yogi Berra would say, “its like deja vu all over again”. Didn’t Obama use this same lame excuse and lie for the following scandals:

  1. WH spox Carney says that President Obama only found out about the VA scandal recently from news reports. (VIDEO) But he of course was lying, he knew since 2008.
  2. Obama said that he first learned about IRS-gate from the the same news reports that I think most people learned about this.
  3. Obama and his surrogates have claimed he learned of several other scandals from broadcast or print news stories also include Operation Fast and Furious.
  4. Obama also said he only learned in the news the DOJ’s seizure of two months of Associated Press phone records.
  5. NSA Denies Obama Knew Of Spying On German Leader
  6. HHS Chief: President Didn’t Know Of Obamacare Website Woes Beforehand
  7. Obama Claims He Didn’t Know About the Petraeus Investigation

Michelle Obama and the Cupcake Police Put an End to School Fundraiser Bake Sales

 Could Liberals just stay the hell out of our lives?

Now bake sales for school fundraiser are public enemy number one for liberals. Thanks to the  2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by first lady Michelle Obama, school kids will no longer be able to have cupcake bake sales to raise money. Thanks Michelle, because apples, celery and carrot sticks are not quite the money makers as brownies, cookies and cupcakes. So what does Michelle Obama have against school children raising money for school trips or band and athletic equipment?

Good grief, what ever happened to the America I grew up in where kids could have a bake sale to raise money for their class trip right after playing a game of dodge-ball?

Maybe Michelle should start with you own husband first?

Senator Barack Obama Campaigns To Win Pennsylvania Caucus

But the sales won’t be so sweet starting this fall. Campus bake sales—a mainstay of school fundraisers—are going on a diet. A federal law that aims to curb childhood obesity means that, in dozens of states, bake sales must adhere to nutrition requirements that could replace cupcakes and brownies with fruit cups and granola bars.

Jeff Ellsworth, principal of the kindergarten through eighth-grade school in Chapman, Neb., isn’t quite sure how to break the news to the kids. “The chocolate bars are a big seller,” said Mr. Ellsworth.


The restrictions that took effect in July stem from the 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act championed by first lady Michelle Obama and her “Let’s Move!” campaign. The law overhauled nutrition standards affecting more than 30 million children. Among the changes: fatty french fries were out, while baked sweet potato fries were deemed to be fine.

The law also required the U.S. Department of Agriculture to set standards for all food and beverages sold during the school day, which includes vending machines, snack carts and daytime fundraisers. It allowed for “infrequent” fundraisers, and states were allowed to decide how many bake sales they would have that didn’t meet nutrition standards.

This 4th of July Gas Prices Climb to the Highest in 6 Years Since 2008

Thanks Barack, as Americans are squeezed at the pump this 4th of July.

The current national average price of gas is 23 cents per gallon more expensive than it was on the Fourth of July last year, the highest since 2008. Can no one see the parallel and irony that on this 4th of July gas prices will be at a six year high due dependence on foreign oil and the turmoil and unrest in the Middle East and American Independence Day? When will the United States begin an energy policy in this country of  “energy” independence, instead of a war on oil, coal and any other form of energy that the Obama administration does not deem “green”?


Gas prices are expected to be at the highest level in six years for the Fourth of July holiday. Yes, the gas prices are set to raise on national independence day.

Regular gasoline peaked at a national average of $3.98 a gallon in early May. The current national average price of gas is 23 cents per gallon more expensive than it was on the Fourth of July last year. The highest was seen in 2008. The highest record was $4.11 a gallon in 2008.

“We’re going to see the highest July 4th prices since 2008, and we probably wouldn’t have, if it weren’t for Iraq,” said Tom Kloza, chief oil analyst at GasBuddy.com. “I certainly would not rule out if something happens near Basra or south of Baghdad, we would see national prices make a pass at $4…but I just don’t see a fuel apocalypse in North America this year.”

“Although gas prices in the Southeast remained relatively stable from last week, it wouldn’t be surprising to see gas prices inch up slightly before the holiday weekend,” said Jessica Brady, AAA spokeswoman with The Auto Club Group. “Even though pump prices are higher than they were this time last year, they are not expected to deter holiday travelers.”

Gas prices used to depreciate in the upcoming weeks of the holiday in previous years, but that’s not the case this summer.

AAA Travel reports the statewide average price of gas is $3.71 for a gallon of regular unleaded. It was $3.48 last year on the Fourth.
