Occupy Oakland Burns U.S. Flag

"[N]either the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are universally corrupt." --Samuel Adams-- Occupy Oakland lit up this weekend -- literally. Following a vicious day that included robberies, demolishing fences and rioting police, and was highlighted by burning an American flag, over 400 occupiers were arrested on Saturday night. But OWS, protesting "income inequality" and "corporate greed," would never shamefully and purposely dishonor America, right? Not so fast. Apparently having not yet proved how anti-America they are, Occupy Oakland took the "protests" to a whole new level: They recorded a video during Saturday's ruckus displaying the burning of an American flag along with their version of The Pledge of Allegiance: I pledge allegiance to a flag of the imperialistic, capitalistic dictatorship. And to the plutocracy for which it stands, depravity owned central bank, under the Jews. With inequality and injustice for the 99. This is something one's more accustomed to seeing in the Middle East -- not the middle of America. For the record, these are the very same people that some of our elected leaders have, in a roundabout way, supported: "In some ways, [Occupy Wall Street protests are] not that different from some of the protests that we saw coming from the Tea Party. Both on the left and the right, I think people feel separated from their government. They feel that their institutions aren't looking out for them." --Barack Obama "I think that if you look at the Occupy Wall Street folks and the Tea Party folks, they come from the same perspective. They just have different solutions. What they're saying is, 'government is not working for me anymore.'" --New Jersey Republican Gov. Chris Christie "The message of the protesters is a message for the establishment everyplace. No longer will the recklessness of some on Wall Street cause massive joblessness on Main Street. ... God bless them for their spontaneity. It's independent ... it's young, it's spontaneous, it's focused. And it's going to be effective." --House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi Question: When was the last time you ever saw the Tea Party burn an American flag?

Allen West is screwed by the GOP

From the Shark Tank With the Florida Legislature preparing to tackle redistricting during the 2012 Legislative session, the preliminary maps that have been offered up for review are making quite a stink amongst Republicans, as the preliminary maps drawn appear to favor Democrats. One may have believed that the so-called “most conservative legislature” in Florida’s history would see to it that the redistricting process, at least overall would strengthen Republicans’ chances in a plurality of legislative and congressional districts across the state. Unfortunately for the GOP faithful, this does not seem to be the case. Due in part to the influence of Amendments 5 & 6 and the two new congressional districts that Florida has gained, Republicans are on the verge of fumbling away their advantage. And while Republican congressional incumbents will have to concede district-wide favorability to Democrats, Congressman Allen West’s 22nd congressional district may very be drawn to include substantially more Democrats within it-potentially far many more than other Republican incumbents. It is hard to comprehend that Congressman West, who is arguably one of the most popular Republicans in the state is being put in such a position. Keep in mind that the Democrat National Committee (DNC) and its Chairwoman/Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz have identified West as being ‘Public Enemy #1.’ West is one of the most visible and outspoken members of Congress, and he has been holding both Republicans and the Obama Administration accountable for their actions. Florida GOP vs. Congressman Allen West So why would the “most conservative legislature” in Florida’s history look the other way as West’s congressional district lines are re-drawn? Is the fix really in to knock Allen West out of Congress? About five months ago, a very high ranking member of the Florida legislature gave me a very disturbing prediction regarding redistricting- “Allen West is screwed.” Take note that comment was made five months ago, long before the proposed maps were made public. So are the poobahs in the Florida legislature really gunning to oust Allen West? Was a backroom deal made with the Democrat members of the legislature to put West’s seat into play in order to protect the other congressional seats that would favor any future runs for Congress by existing members of the Florida Legislature? The deals were struck, and the maps drawn behind closed doors. http://shark-tank.net/2012/01/10/24080/

Get the Hell out of America!

Speaking to a Lincoln Day Dinner in West Palm Beach for the Palm Beach County GOP, Rep. Allen West (R-Fla) fired off a humdinger of a line that within minutes drew recriminations from Democrats on Twitter. “We need to let President Obama, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, (audience boos) and my dear friend the chairman of the Democrat National Committee, we need to let them know that Florida ain’t on the table,” West said. “Take your message of equality of achievement, take your message of economic dependency, take your message of enslaving the entrepreneurial will and spirit of the American people somewhere else. You can take it to Europe, you can take it to the bottom of the sea, you can take it to the North Pole, but get the hell out of the United States of America.” Following cheers, West added, “Yeah I said ‘hell.’“

Ameritopia: The Unmaking of America

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1439173249/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&tag=urbangrounds-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=1439173249 The book, released Monday, compares the Utopian and unworkable schemes laid out by political philosophers from Plato to Thomas Hobbes with the vision of natural law, God-given rights, and individual liberty that inspired the Founding Fathers when they wrote the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. “Utopianism is not new,” Levin writes in Ameritopia.” “It has been repackaged countless times—since Plato and before. It is as old as tyranny itself. In democracies, its practitioners legislate without end. In America, law is piled upon law in contravention and contradiction of the governing law—the Constitution.” Levin’s verdict: Barack Obama and modern American liberals are firmly in the Utopian camp—pursuing a vision fundamentally at odds with limited government and human freedom. “I believe to a great extent we now live in a post-constitutional country, where much of the Constitution is ignored or evaded,” Levin told CNSNews.com.

DSA Marxists Take Over the Occupy Movement: Plan “Spring Offensive,” With Widespread Occupations of State Capitols, Schools and Workplaces

The US’ largest Marxist organization Democratic Socialists of America is moving to infiltrate and direct the Occupy Wall Street Movement into a more organized and socialist focused protest movement. DSA is working hard to sustain ‘Occupy’ over the winter in readiness for a major “spring offensive” largely directed at Republican controlled state capitols as they struggle to address massive budget problems. DSA, Occupy Wall Street, Day One Joseph Schwartz Writing in the latest issue of Democratic Left, DSA leader and Temple University political science professor Joseph Schwartz, explicitly calls for DSA to connect “Occupy” more to the mainstream left in order to use their combined muscle against responsible state governments come spring. The Occupy movement forced the media talking heads to take a break from their obsessive concern with a recession-induced budget deficit to acknowledge the devastating social effects of 30 years of rampant growth in inequality… But will this shift in political focus continue? Only if DSA activists and other progressives help Occupy sustain itself over the winter. Come late winter and early spring, the fight over proposed state and local budgets will reinvigorate the disastrous elite narrative that we must “cut” our way out of the recession. As brute state force, combined with harshwinter weather, forces Occupy out of its public encampments, the move inside may give it time for self reflection and to plan a spring offensive. .. In the coming months, Occupy will have a unique opportunity to link up with community groups and state and local employees fighting another vicious round of budget cuts. Occupy has implicitly advanced another big demand: that the economy serve human needs rather than human beings serving the needs of economic elites. As federal, state, and local budgetary policies reflect the contours of power in society, if Occupy this spring joins the fight for humane state, local, and federal tax, spending, and investment policies, it will be challenging the distribution of power in our society… This spring Occupy should move to the front lawns and rotundas of state capitol buildings to demand a change in state budget policies – and to demand federal government aid to states and localities. “Occupy” has been a huge focus of DSA activity in recent months, a commitment that shows no sign of waning. http://www.trevorloudon.com/2012/01/dsa-marxists-take-over-the-occupy-movement-plan-spring-offensive-with-widespread-occupations-of-state-capitols-schools-and-workplaces/

Sgt Reckless - Korean War Horse Hero

A TRUE War Horse--- Reckless, the mare. This horse was a pack horse during the Korean war, and she carried recoilless rifles, ammunition and supplies to Marines. Nothing too unusual about that, lots of animals got pressed into doing pack chores in many wars. But this horse did something more. During the battle for a location called Outpost Vegas, this mare made 51 trips up and down the hill, on the way up she carried ammunition, and on the way down she carried wounded soldiers. What was so amazing? Well, she made every one of those trips without anyone leading her. One can imagine a horse carrying a wounded soldier, being smacked on the rump at the top of the hill, and heading back to the "safety" of the rear. But to imagine the same horse, loaded with ammunition, and trudging back to the battle where artillery is going off, without anyone leading her is unbelievable. To know that she would make 50 of those trips is unheard of. How many horses would even make it back to the barn once, let alone return to the soldiers in the field even a single time? Here is a clip of her story and photos to prove where she was and what she did. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YIo3ZfA9da0 Reckless was retired at the Marine Corps Base in Camp Pendleton where a General issued the following order: "She was never to carry any more weight on her back except her own blankets." She died in 1968 at the age of 20. P. S. How bad was the battle for Outpost Vegas? Artillery rounds fell at the rate of 500 per hour, and only two men made it out alive without wounds. Just two. And also a horse, and she was wounded twice.

Reclaiming Our Sovereign Autonomy

There is a reason why the second amendment, the right to keep and bear arms, was placed after the right of freedom of speech. The founders knew the US Constitution only came into being because the people were armed and that it may be necessary for the people to be armed to maintain those rights, against a tyrannical government. The oath we take for military service is to protect and defend the Constitution against all enemies both foreign and domestic. If they want to attack my Constitution, so be it, I have shed my blood for it before, I will happily do it again.
The right to speak and publish freely is currently under assault in all Western democracies. In some countries, and especially in the European Union, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights is now interpreted to mean that religious freedom includes the right not to be insulted by statements about one’s religion. At the instigation of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, national constitutions are being rewritten or reinterpreted to allow exceptions to the right to free speech when the “defamation of religion” is involved. Free speech is being actively suppressed in Western Europe, where those who criticize immigration and Islamization are frequently harassed, fired from their jobs, arrested, charged, prosecuted, convicted, and fined. In the near future we can expect that someone in Europe will go to prison simply for expressing his opinion about the Religion of Peace. Britain, Sweden, the Netherlands, France, and Austria are actively vying to see who can be first to incarcerate a Counterjihad dissident. Notwithstanding the protections afforded by the First Amendment, the United States of America is well on its way down the same evil path. Christians who proselytize on the streets of Muslim neighborhoods have discovered to their dismay that existing statutes concerning incitement, intimidation, disorderly conduct, and breach of the peace can be utilized to arrest and remove infidels who insult Muslims, even if the charges are later dismissed. To make matters worse, a direct assault on the First Amendment is on the horizon, with Hillary Clinton’s promise to the OIC that the United States will work to implement the UN resolution requiring member states to pass laws that criminalize the “defamation of religions”. An end run around the Constitution may also be available in the recently-passed National Defense Authorization bill, which permits the president to order indefinite military detention of American citizens, even within the United States. The rationale is that we are in a “time of war”. The war, however, has never been declared, and the enemy is unnamed — except, of course, as “extremism”. And we all know who Barack Hussein Obama considers to be the “extremists”. The NDAA does not bode well for tea-partiers, Islamophobes, Ron Paul supporters, and other “right-wing extremists”. If nothing else, the feds will be forced to detain a few of us just to prove they are not engaging in “profiling”. This is the state of free speech in the Western world ca. 2012. The current plight of free expression, like so many other rights, is a reminder of the old admonition: Use it or lose it. http://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2012/01/reclaiming-our-sovereign-autonomy.html#more

Leaked Docs Show FBI And SPLC Infiltrated Group In OK Bombing Case

In a January 5, 1996 teletype to select FBI field offices, FBI Director Louis Freeh revealed that the Southern Poverty Law Center, the radical left-wing group run by civil rights lawyer Morris Dees, had an informant living in Elohim City. Elohim City is a white supremacist compound whose inhabitants have been closely linked to the Oklahoma City bombing. And that informant was dutifully reporting to Bill Clinton’s FBI.[1]

It’s thanks to Salt Lake City attorney Jesse Trentadue that we have this information, which proves “the SPLC was engaged in an undercover role where they monitored subjects for the FBI believed to be linked to …Tim McVeigh.” [2]

Upon being leaked a redacted copy of the Freeh teletype, Trentadue filed a Freedom of Information Act request for the full document and any other information held by the Oklahoma City FBI field office pertaining to the SPLC, specifically, “all documents about any connection between the Southern Poverty Law Center and eight named individuals from the OKBOMB and BOMBROB investigations or a white supremacist compound in Elohim City, Okla.”[3]

When the FBI declared no such Freeh teletype existed, Trentadue produce his copy and an enraged U.S. district court Judge Dale Kimball ordered the FBI to produce all responsive documentation. Though the FBI later admitted in response to Kimball’s order that some 340 documents had been discovered, the Bureau has been fighting the judge’s ruling that they be turned over ever since the 2005 filing.

A number of obvious questions surround the substance of Freeh’s teletype. Why did the Clinton Department of Justice want or permit the “assistance” of Morris Dees and the SPLC? How much did the group’s informant learn while in Elohim City? What did he relate to the FBI, and was it as much as he told his boss Morris Dees?

During a 2003 press conference at Southeastern Oklahoma State University, Dees “…confirmed someone from his organization was inside the white supremacist compound at Elohim City on April 17, 1995,” just 2 days before the Murrah building bombing. “If I told you what we were doing there, I would have to kill you,” was Dees’ less than humorous response to a reporter’s question about the SPLC plant.

The SPLC is a virulently anti-militia, anti-gun rights, anti-conservative organization which has worked over the years to advance the causes of the radical left. That the Clinton FBI and Department of Justice allowed the group to participate in an undercover mission which should have been restricted to legitimate law enforcement agencies is ludicrous.

Morris Dees has steadfastly refused to discuss the work his agent did at Elohim City, his reasons for wanting the spy to be in the area, and the information the individual passed on to Dees just days, perhaps hours, prior to the killing of 168 people in the Murrah building.

A true cynic might suggest both Dees and his agent KNEW of the imminent bombing and did nothing to help prevent it, content that the deadly plot would provide years of “ammunition” for SPLC attacks against an American militia movement which had gained enormous support following the FBI/ATF outrages committed at Ruby Ridge and Waco.

Of course that would require a particularly cold blooded, murderous attitude be adopted by the radical left along with a despicable willingness to knowingly conflate the views of patriotic, Constitution-loving militia organizations with those of lunatic, neo-Nazi fringe groups.

And such dishonesty on the part of the far left hardly seems possible, now does it?

Advice to a Generic Candidate





January 8, 2012
Last night on the lobotomy box I encountered yet another candidate for the presidency, a Mr. Sanctorum, threatening to make war on Iran. I can't decide whether the idea is more frightening than fascinating, or fascinating than frightening. I do suggest that the combined candidates do not have the military competence of a stuffed bear. Given that the principlal business of the United States is war and preparation for it, do we want a martial analphabetic in charge? One does not let children play with chain saws. (From all of this I exempt Ron Paul, who appears to be sane.)

To save the republic, if any, from another routine military disaster, I offer the following thoughts.

To begin, I will ask the following questions of the candidates, and for that matter of Mr. Obama, and of the Secretary of Defense, a generic bureaucrat.

Can you explain: Convergence zones, base bleed, Kursk, range-gate pull-off, artillery at Dien Bien Phu, IR cross-over, Tet and queen sacrifice, Brahmos 2, CIWIS, supercruise, side-lobe penetration, seven-eighty-twice gear, super-cavitating torpedoes, phased arrays, pulse Doppler, the width of Hormuz versus the range of Iranian cruise missiles, DU, discarding sabot, frequency agility, Chobham armor, and pseudo-random PRF?

These, gentlemen, are the small talk of serious students of the military. Here I mean men like David Isby, author of such books as Weapons and Tactics of the Soviet Army for Jane's, which you likely have never heard of, or William S. Lind, probably the best military mind (though, or because, not a soldier), that I have encountered. If you are unfamiliar with them, and with the things listed above, you are unfamiliar with the military. Yet you campaign for possession of the trigger.

Perhaps a little humility, perish the thought, and a little self-examination might be in order.

Peering into your own depths, you will probably find that the humility does not come easily. In my decades of covering the armed services, I noticed among men a belief in their innate jock-strap competency regarding wars. Men who would readily admit ignorance of petroleum geology, ophthalmology, or ancient Sumerian grammar nonetheless believe that they grasp matters military. Usually they do not. In particular, they have an utterly unexamined belief in America's military invincibility.

Candidates should be wary of this. Instead, most of you propose ultimata to Iran as one would threaten a three-year-old with a spanking. You clearly think that the American flotilla would quickly thrash the impudent Persians with no unexpected consequences. Do as we say, or the fleet will teach you a jolly good lesson.

So thought Philip II in 1588.

Police State

I am wondering why the federal government needs these "secure communities" all over the US
especially when the government is not interested in detaining and deporting illegal aliens?
Who are the prisons intended for? John Galt got a copy of an ICE memo and it is well worth
reading in entirety.

Another Russian "capture" of Somali pirates.


I love the old-school way Russia has of dealing with these murderous a@#holes. Our Navy dealt with this same problem 200 years ago in the same manner. The Barbary pirate problem led directly to the creation of the US Navy in 1794. The problem was so bad it was not safe to be on the water anywhere between Ireland and North Africa.
Barbary Corsairs captured thousands of ships, and long stretches of coast in Spain and Italy were almost completely abandoned by their inhabitants, discouraging settlement until the 19th century. From the 16th to 19th century, corsairs captured an estimated 800,000 to 1.25 million people as slaves.
Even though its Russia, I still enjoy watching soldiers get in some good target practice on worthwhile moving tagets. This is far superior to our 'catch and release' SOP.

A politician with the ‘stones’ to say, “Put a pork restaurant next to the Ground Zero Victory mosque”

Just what the UK needs: A politician with the ‘stones’ to say, “Put a pork restaurant next to the Ground Zero Victory mosque”
Posted: January 7, 2012 | Author: barenakedislam
A Liberal Democrat candidate has refused to apologize for a series of shocking anti-Islam comments. Dave Stones suggested a pork restaurant and a topless bar, named after Islam’s holiest city, should be built next to a proposed NYC mosque.


IslamophobiaWatch The councillor hopeful, who is the party’s candidate for a by-election in Redcar and Cleveland on 19 January, said:

“Regarding the mosque being built near Ground Zero. I say let them build it. But then, across the street we should put a topless bar called “You Mecca Me Hot” … and next to that a pork rib restaurant … Then we’ll see who’s tolerant.”

Marxism in America



Lt. Gen. (Ret.) W.G. "Jerry" Boykin

Why Somali MUSLIM Pirates won’t be attacking Russian ships anytime soon



Somali Muslim Pirates capture a Russian oil tanker. Russian Navy commandos quickly free their compatriots and the tanker. They move the pirates back to their own ship, searching for weapons and explosives, leaving the pirates handcuffed to the ship. After the Russians left, they blew up the ship with all the Muslim bastards on it.
The commandos sank the pirate ship along with the pirates and without any court proceedings, lawyers etc. That is, they used the anti-piracy laws of the 18th and 19th centuries where the captain of the rescuing ship has the right to decide what to do with the pirates. Usually, they were hanged.

Report: Iran tells departed US carrier to 'stay out' of Persian Gulf'

Can anyone quantify for me how incredibly stupid Iran's leaders have become? I need a word to help comprehend it. Something like GiagantaObamaNormous.

US Aircraft Carrier in the Arabian/Persian Gulf

Islamic Republic's army chief warns US to keep its aircraft carriers out of Persian Gulf waters, says warning will not be repeated

News agencies Published: 01.03.12, 10:30 / Israel News
Iran's army chief told the United States that a US aircraft carrier which left the area because of Iranian naval exercises should not return to the Gulf, the state news agency reported on Tuesday.

"Iran will not repeat its warning ... the enemy’s carrier has been moved to the Sea of Oman because of our drill. I recommend and emphasize to the American carrier not to return to the Persian Gulf," Ataollah Salehi told IRNA.

Iran test-fires long range missiles



"I advise, recommend and warn them (the Americans) over the return of this carrier to the Persian Gulf because we are not in the habit of warning more than once," the semi-official Fars news agency quoted Salehi as saying.

Salehi did not name the aircraft carrier or give details of the action Iran might take if it returned.

Iran completed 10 days of naval exercises in the Gulf on Monday, and said during the drills that if foreign powers imposed sanctions on its crude exports it could shut the Strait of Hormuz, through which 40 percent of the world's traded oil is shipped.

The US Fifth Fleet, which is based in Bahrain, said it would not allow shipping to be disrupted in the strait.

Iran said on Monday it had successfully test-fired two long-range missiles during its naval drill, flexing its military muscle in the face of mounting Western pressure over its controversial nuclear program.

Iran also said it had no intention of closing the Strait of Hormuz but had carried out "mock" exercises on shutting the strategic waterway.

Meanwhile, French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe said on Tuesday that Iran was continuing to develop nuclear weapons and called for stronger sanctions against Tehran.
"Iran is pursuing the development of its nuclear arms, I have no doubt about it," he told French television I-Tele. "The last report by the International Atomic Energy Agency is quite explicit on this point."

The ATF Might Have Prevented The Oklahoma City Bombing

Had the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms in February of 1995 acted upon an its expressed determination to arrest a German national who had overstayed his visa, the Oklahoma City bombing might not have taken place.

While the show trial of Oklahoma City bomber Tim McVeigh was being conducted at Denver, Colorado in April of 1997, another federal proceeding was taking place in Tulsa, Oklahoma. But no one seemed particularly interested in this case–the federal prosecution of former beauty queen and Oklahoma debutante Carol Howe for making bomb threats against the government of the United States.

No one, that is, but the Department of Justice itself. And attorneys representing the Department were interested enough to exhibit virtual desperation when privately begging Judge Michael Burrage to seal the case and all appertaining information lest it be acquired by McVeigh attorneys in Denver!

For some 8 months prior to the April 19, 1995 destruction of the Alfred P. Murrah federal building, Carol Howe had been acting as an informant for the ATF. Her mission was to gather information from and about friends and acquaintances located in Elohim Cty, Oklahoma, a known hangout for neo-Nazi and white supremacist groups in the state.

And although Judge Burrage did indeed seal the records of her trial, a leaked “Transcript of Proceedings” conducted in a sealed hearing make it clear that Howe had reported to her ATF contact that Andreas Strassmeir, a German national living in Elohim City who had over-stayed his American visa, was both an explosives expert and had made threats about blowing up a federal building in Oklahoma City.

“And Ms. Howe told you about Mr. Strassmeir’s threats to blow up federal buildings, didn’t she,” asked Howe’s attorney, Clark Brewster of Carol Howe’s “handler”, ATF Agent Angela Finley-Graham during Howe’s trial.

“In general, yes” responded Agent Graham.

“And that was before the Oklahoma City bombing,” continued Brewster.

“Yes” said Graham. (1)

In fact, Carol Howe had accompanied Andreas Strassmeir to Oklahoma City at Graham’s urging some months earlier and not only relayed this information to Graham, but accompanied the ATF agent to Oklahoma City shortly thereafter, detailing all of the buildings visited by the prospective bombers.

As reported by McCurtain Daily Gazette journalist J.D. Cash, Andreas Strassmeir “…had been singled out for arrest by the ATF in early 1995, but those plans were thwarted by the Oklahoma City FBI office.” (2)

Howe had identified Strassmeir as a principle in the plot to destroy federal buildings. He had over-stayed his visa and bragged of having access to fully automatic weapons.

Yet “…last minute efforts by then-FBI special agent in charge of the Oklahoma City field office, Bob Ricks, scrubbed plans for Strassmeir’s arrest when the FBI agent contacted U.S. Attorney Steve Lewis in Tulsa and complained about the ATF plan to raid Elohim City.” (2)

Ricks later explained his actions by claiming he wanted to avoid another Waco-type debacle on the part of the ATF!

So the FBI intervened to prevent the arrest of the explosives expert whose knowledge was so necessary to Tim McVeigh in the construction of the Oklahoma City truck bomb. Had this early 1995 ATF raid of Elohim City and arrest of Andreas Strassmeir taken place, would it have given flight to others known to frequent Elohim City and known to have assisted McVeigh and Nichols in the bombing? Would the loss of Strassmeir to the conspiracy have been enough in itself?

And for those not foolish enough to believe Agent Ricks’ nonsensical explanation of his actions, what really prompted the FBI to intervene in Strassmeir’s arrest?

Testimony and documents acquired since the 1995 bombing of the Murrah building make it clear that agents of Bill Clinton’s Treasury and Justice Departments, along with numerous informants reporting to them, had acquired information of a plot to bomb a federal building long before it occurred. It was kept from Tim McVeigh attorneys just as it has been kept from the American public because incredibly, not one federal official acted to prevent it.

Bluto's Animal House Speech



A little motivational speech to help y'all get ready for 2012
