A few jars of the finished product

Corn relish is good. Really good. It’s amazing on hot dogs and hamburgers, but it can accompany essentially any grilled meat, or be spread on sandwiches, or mixed with chicken salad, or even slathered on scrambled eggs or omelettes. Kids dig it the most.

You don’t even have to go out and buy canning jars – as you can see from the picture, I just reused empty jars I had saved.

This recipe is cribbed straight from Simplyrecipes.com, but I had to share it. I cut the sugar down to 1 cup, but the rest is perfect as is.

Ingredients

  • 1 large cucumber, peeled, seeded, and roughly chopped
  • 2 cups chopped onions
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 4 cups corn kernels (cut from 4-6 ears, depending on how big the ears are)
  • 2 plum or Roma tomatoes, diced the size of…

Nugent once said: “If Barack Obama becomes President…I will either be dead or in jail.” I vote for dead in jail. It’s disrespectful to have him present at the State Of The Union address. I so hope he is drunk & shouts out & has to be removed from the Chamber by Capital Hill Police, in handcuff & leg irons. Poetic Justice.

Thank you The Fifth Column for this post.

Raw Story

The conservative rocker who said that he would be “dead or in jail” if President Barack Obama was re-elected has been invited to attend Tuesday’s annual State of the Union address.

In a statement provided to Politico on Monday, freshman Rep. Steve Stockman (R-TX) said that Ted Nugent would be attending Obama’s speech to Congress as his guest.

“I am excited to have a patriot like Ted Nugent joining me in the House Chamber to hear from President Obama,” Stockman said. “After the Address I’m sure Ted will have plenty to say.”

Earlier this year, Stockman threatened to initiate impeachment proceedings if the president used executive actions to limit gun rights.

“I will seek to thwart this action by any means necessary, including but not limited to eliminating funding for implementation, defunding the White House, and even filing articles of…

Christopher Dorner case: Fugitive ex-LA cop charged with murder of officer

by Gillian Flaccus and Tami Abdollah, The Associated Press | February 11, 2013

RIVERSIDE, California (AP) — A fugitive ex-Los Angeles police officer with a $1 million reward on his head was charged Monday with murdering a police officer and special circumstances that could bring the death penalty.

 

Riverside County District Attorney Paul Zellerbach said Christopher Dorner was also charged with the attempted murder of another officer in Riverside, about 55 miles (90 kilometers) east of Los Angeles, as well as two police officers in Los Angeles.

 

The LAPD officers and the two Riverside officers were fired on in two separate shootings early Thursday after Dorner became the target of a manhunt suspected of killing a former LAPD captain’s daughter and her fiance the previous weekend.

 

“By both his words and conduct, he has made very clear to us that every law enforcement officer in Southern California is in danger of being shot and killed,” Zellerbach said.

 

Southern California authorities were investigating hundreds of tips Monday after offering the $1 million reward for information leading to Dorner’s arrest.

 

The manhunt for Dorner, 33, coupled with added security at Sunday’s Grammy Awards, left the ranks of the Los Angeles Police Department stretched thin.

 

Along with responding to routine calls for service, police have been protecting dozens of families considered possible targets of Dorner, based on his alleged Facebook rant against those he held responsible for ending his career with the LAPD five years ago.

 

“Our dedication to catch this killer remains steadfast,” Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa said. “We will not tolerate this reign of terror.”

 

Police and city officials believe the $1 million reward, raised from both public and private sources, will encourage the public to stay vigilant.

 

“This is not about catching a fugitive suspect, it’s about preventing a future crime, most likely a murder,” LAPD Chief Charlie Beck said. “This is an act, make no mistake about it, of domestic terrorism.”

 

Beck deflected questions about whether the reward would be paid if Dorner was found dead or alive. He called the phrase “ugly” and said he hoped no one else was injured in the ordeal, including the suspect.

 

As the search dragged on, worrisome questions emerged: How long could the intense search be sustained? And, if Dorner keeps evading capture, how do authorities protect dozens of former police colleagues?

 

LAPD Cmdr. Andrew Smith said the department has deployed 50 protection details to guard officers and their families who were deemed possible targets.

 

And there are no plans to reduce protection until Dorner is in custody, Los Angeles police Sgt. Rudy Lopez said.

 

“We realize it costs money and it gets expensive,” said Chuck Drago, a Florida-based police consultant. “But this is as clear of a threat as you can get. The money is always an issue but not when it’s somebody’s life at stake.”

 

One tip led police to surround and evacuate a Lowe’s Home Improvement store on Sunday in the San Fernando Valley, but a search yielded no evidence that Dorner had been there.

 

Residents remained on edge in suburban Irvine, where the first two killings occurred. Some residents have kept their children at home, others no longer walk their dogs at night.

 

“If he did come around this corner, what could happen? We’re in the crossfire, with the cops right there,” said Irvine resident Joe Palacio, who lives down the street from the home of retired police Capt. Randal Quan, who is being protected.

 

Monica Quan and her fiance were found shot dead on Feb. 3 in Irvine. Dorner was named as the suspect on Wednesday.

 

Two law enforcement officers who requested anonymity because of the ongoing investigation told The Associated Press they were trying to determine if Dorner made a call telling Randal Quan that he should have done a better job protecting his daughter.

 

The violence escalated Thursday, when police say Dorner got into a shootout with police in Corona, grazing an LAPD officer’s head with a bullet before escaping. Authorities believe Dorner then used a rifle to ambush the two Riverside police officers, killing one and seriously wounding another.

 

Until Sunday, police had withheld the names of victims, fearing Dorner might target their families. But Riverside police said the officer killed was Michael Crain, 34, an ex-Marine and 11-year department veteran.

 

Officials decided to proceed with the identification and public memorial despite the possible dangers, Riverside police Chief Sergio Diaz said.

 

“We’re not going to fail our officer and our hero,” Diaz said. “We’re going to bury him.”

 

Late last week, the manhunt focused on Big Bear in the San Bernardino Mountains, where authorities found Dorner’s burned-out truck with weapons and camping gear inside.

 

Though Dorner has not been found, Beck said Sunday that Big Bear remained his most likely location, and that planning may have helped him elude authorities.

 

Thank you The Associated Press.
