"They don't belong here and they need to be controlled."

There are more aliens invading the U.S. These are threatening crops, wildlife and ultimately the citizens of Florida.

GRASSY KEY, Florida (Reuters) - Deep in the heart of the Florida Keys, wildlife officials are laying bait laced with poison to try to wipe out a colony of enormous African rats that could threaten crops and other animals.

U.S. federal and state officials are beginning the final phase of a two-year project to eradicate the Gambian pouched rats, which can grow to the size of a cat and began reproducing in the remote area about eight years ago.

The story states that this population came from escapees from an exotic pet breeder.

This species is now banned from importation after another population began to spread monkey pox, related to human small pox, to prairie dogs.

When contacted by this blogger Sen. Kennedy's office would neither confirm or deny that they are proposing an amnesty plan for the Gambian pouched rats. The Gambian pouched rats, however, are planning mass demonstrations, carrying the Gambian flag for the near future.

AP spreads its legs for yet another customer

The Associated Press has long ago become the whore for the Muslim market. This little-reported story isn't news to the rest of the MSM. Roughly 50% of the AP's budget is bought and paid for by Muslim interests to produce news content in Arabic for consumption in the Muslim world.

With that sort of incentive it's quite plain why the AP hires "journalists" who print false stories, publishes doctored photos and is loathe to call Muslims terrorists.

It is the journalistic equivalant of whoring.

Now it looks like they have a new customer. Either that or they are giving it away free, now.

Environmentalists have spent decades acquiring and preserving 90,000 riverfront acres of Texas scrub and forest and protecting their wildlife. Now they fear the hundreds of miles of border fences will undo their work and kill some land animals by cutting them off from the Rio Grande, the only source of fresh water.

A fence could also prevent the ocelots and other animals from swimming across the water to mate with partners on the other side.

"If you have a fence that runs several miles long, if you are a tortoise or any animal that can't fly over or go through it, then you have a pretty long distance that you have to go to get water," said Brown, an outreach manager at the Santa Ana National Wildlife Refuge, 225 miles south of San Antonio. Also, "any destruction of any brush is very damaging."

This AP story is wearing too much red lipstick and dressed for "work".

While it makes the case for how bad the proposed border fence will be for the wildlife in the area it clearly avoids talking about how the swarm of humans moving across the border already impacts the delicate ecosystems.

There is almost no mention of the tons of trash left in the wake of the illegal aliens as they move north. Not one word about what the armed drug traffic does to the wildlife. No, they'll give you a picture of a cute ocelot and not tell you about them being shot at with full auto AKs which are a favorite of the drug runners south of the border.

The story is full of how much fence has been requested and how much has been spent on the area's preservation while not telling you that there's been almost no fence construction.

The article claims that there is a booming tourism to the area without telling you what happens to U.S. tourists who might stray into the path of drug runners or human smugglers.

Once again the story the AP wishes to present is this liberal fantasy of a dreaded, oppressive U.S. impact on something while ignoring anyone else's responsibility for damage. The feeling presented is that the fence is evil and those putting up the fence are evil. Not one ounce of blame for those who make the fence a necessity.

Wars and rumors of wars

I don't like to spread gossip. I don't spread rumors. I prefer to keep my mouth shut because from my childhood to today I've seen an awful lot of bull flying. I'm usually suprised if something actually comes of 90% of what I hear.

That's why I only put a half-cent's worth of credit into an item forwarded to me in e-mail. I wouldn't give that much but it partially coordinates with actual news.

The story is that Al Qaeda is reaching out to Blacks and other minorities.

Al-Zawahri encouraged minorities around the world to join the holy war, or jihad.

"Al-Qaeda is not merely for the benefit of Muslims," he said. "That's why I want blacks in America, people of color, American Indians, Hispanics, and all the weak and oppressed in North and South America, in Africa and Asia, and all over the world."

I have to wonder how much of this is true, but considering the guy arrested in Chicago who was sort of a "lone wolf" jihadist I have to at least lend it some credit.

Yes. I believe there are stupid people so foolish as to believe that Al Qaeda would give them something if they worked with them to bring about the fall of the United States. The Russians found them and they weren't offering ANY virgins.

Do I expect another group like the Fort Dix Six to actually make an attack? Possibly, though lone wolf operations are much, much more likely.

The unanswered questions (because the local press shied from asking) about the Safeway employee who went on a shooting rampage remains. The suppressed story of the Utah mall shooter being Muslim remains. I don't know what Cho the Coward meant by calling himself Ishmael but that's another set of unanswered questions.

Both the liberals and the Whitehouse don't want to call these acts of terrorism. To do so would be to admit that the Department of Homeland Security is a failure. It would also draw attention the liberals don't want to the fact that we have viper's nests in most parts of our country.

Al Quaeda can sow terror without having direct links to lone wolf operations. They don't have to support them financially. They can spread their filth by way of YouTube and other Internet offerings to get some cowardly punk to get his jihad on.

Our schools, all the way up to many if not most college campuses remain Victim Disarmament Zones. They will continue to be the targets of choice because the press loves to glorify the perpetrators. If a shooter IS a lone wolf jihadi the facts will be suppressed. While Al Quaeda likes to take credit they realize that they accomplish more by not linking to these directly.

They don't stand a chance at an Islamic takeover against an armed citizenry. They are strong in their own lands but can't manage the manpower to take over a nation as big as the U.S. unless they are assured of being the only ones armed. By letting their lone wolves be denied they strengthen the idiots, fools and evil-doers in our own country who want to make the United States into another European Castratiunion. The U.N. pushes this policy as does George Soros. Outside of John Stossel there aren't any MSM voices unmasking the false promise of gun control. They only let him get in one good lick in several years of bashing firearms owners as dangerous nutcases.

Our own government has an entire beauracracy dedicated to eradicating private firearms ownership. In most states, counties and cities there are strong movements to unconstitutionally disarm We The People. Bloomberg is only one disaster away from pulling a Katrina gun-confiscation and because the people of NYC have to register firearms the going will be easy.

The push to eradicating private firearms ownership isn't a rumor. The success of lone wolf jihadis isn't a rumor. Al Qaeda has the ability to enlist aid from people who don't look or sound Muslim. If we don't get serious about our nation's border security and ultra-serious about staying armed and vigilant we will have our nation taken away from us.

And that's no rumor.

And you don't mess around with Slim

Slim Frame or Short Frame?

I know most of the official press declares ithe G 21 SF to mean "Short Frame". It seems that everyone else has decided it stands for Slim Frame.

Either way it's the first revision of the 3rd Generation Glock in years. I know, guns aren't like cars or other consumer goods. The 1971 Cold Government Model is identical to the 1975 Colt Government Model.

I tend to look at the SF, though, as a Generation 3.5. It's not as radical as adding finger grooves (grrrrr!) or even forward and back stippling to the grip. The grip angle remains the same. There is still a big hollow space behind the magazine well. The biggest functional difference is a stock ambidextruous magazine release. This was something clearly done right and is one of the few things that Glock needed to learn from the XD.

Some things I wish they would unlearn from XD is lawyer triggers. I've become a spoiled puppy. I have had my triggers worked on so they are lighter, crisper. Around 3 lb but with less take up than I had on my 17L.

After going for a torture test this morning I am willing to confess to anything my 21 SF wants to hear me say. I think I hit 200 rounds and my trigger finger tip is still tender. I know, 200 rounds isn't even a break-in on a Glock. I don't think anything short of making it lay naked next to Rosie O'Donnell will make it so much as wince.

Of course it fed hardball. It fed hard-cast SWC and it fed "slow-ass Gold Dot". I'm tempted to try plugging spent cases back into the magazine to see if it will feed those.

None Dare Call It Ishmael

One drove a cab, three were roofers. Another worked at a 7-Eleven and a sixth at a supermarket. Their alleged plot to attack Fort Dix was foiled by another blue-collar worker: a video store clerk.

Great detective work there, FBI. Let's see, you got McVeigh because he was stupid enough to drive without a real license plate, the UNABOMBER because his family recognized his published manifesto and just how is that anthrax investigation going, guys? With a track record like yours it's a surprise that we haven't already turned into West Saudi Arabia.

But the real question on my mind isn't how the FBI couldn't manage to find J. Edgar Hoover's dresses inside his closet. No, I'm wanting to know where these guys got their money. None of the jobs mentioned give someone large amounts of disposable income yet these guys had money to burn, taking junkets to the Poconos to shoot, had a video camera and apparently enough cash to look into buying AKs, M-16s and RPGs. If 7-11 is paying that kind of dough I'm in the wrong racket.

I'm also peeved because at least two of these guys shouldn't have been in this country. Like several of the 19 hijackers on 9/11/01 you have alien living here after their papers expire living in the open and causing trouble.

Is this or is this not living proof that the outrage over illegal aliens invading our shores isn't "racial". Just because the majority are Mexicans doesn't mean all of them are. If our government were enforcing the existing laws then these guys and several of the 9/11/01 hijackers would have been in jail or another country.

We don't need immigration reform. We need border enforcement.

The men trained by playing paintball in the woods in New Jersey and taking target practice at a firing range in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains, where they had rented a house, authorities said.
Again, where did they get the money? Cab drivers? 7-11 Clerks? Roofers? WHERE DID THEY GET SO MUCH MONEY? They had a little place rented in the Poconos, money for toys, guns, ammo, video cameras. Where are these supposedly independent operators getting money for all this?

"If these people did something, then they deserve to be punished to the fullest extent of the law," said Sohail Mohammed, a lawyer who represented scores of detainees after the Sept. 11 attacks. "But when the government says `Islamic militants,' it sends a message to the public that Islam and militancy are synonymous."

"Don't equate actions with religion," he said.

Oh, right. Let's not jump to any conclusions about who should be up for extra scrutiny. Plenty of terror attacks by Methodists last year, right? Presbyterians on a rampage over cartoons, right?

Let's drop this "homegrown" bullsh*t right now, people. These guys weren't born or raised here. They came here and were intent on killing. They didn't come here to be citizens, they came to war against our government and our way of life.

I don't know what percentage of Muslims are guilty of the same sin and I don't need to know. I know what percentage of terrorists are Muslims.

Don't equate actions with religion? When the overwhelming majority of one's enemy are of the same religion then it is clear that we ARE at war with Muslims.

Someone needs to get records for that lawyer and find out where HIS money is coming from, too.
