I really, really want to understand why a woman who didn't try to ram her way into national politics (unlike a certain Kennedy) who is no longer in a position to defeat the media's chosen messiah is being trashed.
I don't want the stupid lies told to the public about why they are doing this. I want real answers that reveal true motivations.
To help me understand this I will require the participation of some members of the press. I am asking for volunteers.
I'm certain I will come to understand why they are doing this. It will just take time. And some tools.
I'm sure I'll get to the true motivations, eventually.

This week while he is safely away from questioning reporters his staff released the delayed report on what the President Elect's staff talked to Blagojevich.
This story, in case you haven't noticed, went from "no contact" to "no inappropriate contact" and now comes a completely self-generated report that says there was contact but that Obama's Chief of Staff hasn't got anything to do with pay for play.
All before the public gets to find out which names goes with which code name.
Nothing to see here! Move along!
So, when do we get to find out the truth?
If there is one thing that we, as the American citizenry, have come to know is that when a politician says "nothing to see" there's got to be a dead body, a naked intern and loads of dirty money somewhere nearby.
When Ted Stevens was saying "nothing to see" did that stop the investigations? When Larry Craig said "nothing to see" did that stop people from BOTH parties from trying to get him out of office? When John Edwards said "nothing to see" the MSM couldn't open their eyes but the tabloids were soon spilling the real beans.
So, why should we believe Obama when he says "nothing to see"? Why shouldn't we keep looking for that naked, dead body holding a fistful of dirty money?
There are plenty of people who fear that Obama will be assassinated. I've insisted that he'll survive his one, and only, term. I've been tempering that. He could become the first President to commit suicide.
That would be a real shame.
As much damage as this man is sure to do to America in the next four years I look forward to seeing him squirm, shudder, grimace and turn pale with the crushing truth that he is not fit for this job. Unlike being a "community organizer" or board member or even U.S. Senator this job isn't one that a man can coast through.
I want to see it happening, day-by-day. I want to see him looking haunted. I want him to feel the presence of the men who sat in his office before him as they look upon his term and condemn it.
He's a lost cause and he hasn't even been sworn in.
Fasten your seat belt, Barry. This hand basket is on the downhill ride to Hell. Those abs you are so proud of will be flab in two years and you'll be chain smoking. Just try to stay off the nose candy.

On Nov. 9 Barack Obama issued a statement:
"I have had no contact with the governor or his office, so I was unaware of what was happening.”
Yet a story filed in the MSM on November 8 states:
Now that Barack Obama will be moving to the White House, his seat in the U.S Senate representing Illinois will have to be filled.
Obama met with Governor Rod Blagojevich earlier this week to discuss it. Illinois law states that the governor chooses that replacement.
What this means is that Little O, the empty suit incarnate has been caught in a very public lie and he hasn't even taken the oath of office!
Considering that this very public lie concerns a matter of corruption I do feel that this is a much, much bigger deal than Clinton lying about his sex with Lewinsky. It was the entire U.S. that Blago was going to screw.
Read more at Newsbusters.
This is a gift that keeps on giving.
The identity of "Client #5" for the senate seat?
Jesse Jackson, Jr.
It suddenly makes sense why the AG did not wait until the Gov had announced the winner of the Creepstakes to sell a Senate seat. If he did then he would also have to make an arrest on this lying sack of suet.
Imagine the outrage, the riots and the weeping and gnashing of teeth if Jesse Jackson, Jr. had to do the perp walk along with Blago the Corrupt.
If the AG could keep this to just arresting the White guy and not the son of a race-baiting publicity hound and all around parasite then he won't face having his family murdered by those misunderstood youth of Chicagoland.
The story at Hot Air.

"Rod Blagojevich is just this guy from the neighborhood. We may have bumped into each other once or twice but I don't really know him."
Readers are reminded that Barack Obama no longer allows questions about his past associations with Bill Ayers, Rev. Wright, Tony Resko or Osama bin Laden, who was another guy in the neighborhood.

Here's a perfect example of someone's First Amendment rights being trampled and there's not one ACLU zombie in sight.
A Marine veteran whose anti-terrorist and anti-Islam vehicle decals hindered him in visiting the grave of his fallen son at Arlington National Cemetery has filed a federal lawsuit challenging the military order which rebuked his display of the decals.Liberals are fond of lying about the ACLU claiming it's for EVERYONE. They can't name a single example, however, of the ACLU fighting for the 2nd Amendment. Too bad we can't get an ACLU lawyer to sue the ACLU for false advertising. They need to correct the name of the organization. American CERTAIN Liberties Union would be truthful.
Jesse Nieto, a 25-year Marine veteran, served two combat tours in Vietnam. His youngest son, Marc, was one of the seventeen sailors killed in the terrorist bombing of the U.S.S. Cole in October of 2000.
Since 1994 Nieto has been a civilian employee at the Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina. In 2001 he began displaying various decals on his vehicle expressing sentiments such as “Remember the Cole, 12 Oct 2000,” “Islam=Terrorism” and “We Died, They Rejoiced.”
After Nieto refused to remove all allegedly offending decals from his vehicle, the Base Magistrate issued a written order ordering Nieto to remove his vehicle from the base until all decals were removed. The order banned his vehicle from all other federal installations, and reportedly prevented him from driving onto the grounds of Arlington National Cemetery.
The Ann Arbor-based Thomas More Law Center filed a federal civil rights lawsuit this week on Nieto’s behalf against the Camp Lejeune Commanding Officer and the Base Magistrate in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of North Carolina. The lawsuit claims that the military’s ban on Nieto’s vehicle decals violates his constitutional rights to freedom of speech and the equal protection of the law.
“The banning of these decals is political correctness run amuck in the military,” charged Richard Thompson, President and Chief Counsel of the Thomas More Law Center. “Our troops are being killed by Islamic terrorists, 9/11 was caused by Islamic terrorists, these terrorists want to destroy America, the Islamic countries persecute Christians, and now the military is victimizing a father whose son was killed by Islamic terrorists while serving our nation.”
It is shameful, though, that ANY veteran would be ticketed for practicing his freedom of speech. That the veteran's freedom of speech is underscored by the loss of his son and the message being suppressed is the truth of who killed that son is beyond shameful.

Like any entity that abandons basic quality control, political parties rot from within. It happened to the Democrats long ago, and now has become the case with the Republican Party, which has strayed from its conservative underpinnings.
There are really only four things I have a strong aversion to: unloaded guns, dull knives, banjos, and Republicans in Name Only (RINOs).
RINOs reach across Fedzilla's aisle to cut deals and build consensus with the liberals. Consensus building means compromising values and cutting deals with the socialist prankster punksters whose goal it is to turn America into EuroAmerica.
My specialty is making Fedzilla punks squirm and turn into a puddle of sweat and drool. Therefore, in the spirit of famous butt kickers Generals Chesty Puller and George Patton, I say we launch an attack on all fronts. Uncle Ted hereby declares it is open season on RINOs. No bag limits or permits required. Conservative ideas, arguments and votes are the weapons we will use. Hunt them down and shine a blazing light on these RINO turncoat cockroaches. Zero in the "we the people" crosshairs of your voting assault weapon and aim for the RINO pumpstation. Double tap center mass. Whack em and stack em, track em and hack em, pack em and give em no slack. Let's do to the RINO beasts what we did to the passenger pigeon. Force out of the Republican Party out the subspecies known as RINOs.
Now, go read the rest.

This looks like it could change in a big way. For one thing the Republicans are wallowing in self-pity and backstabbing each other. Doesn't make them very attractive.
Additionally the Republicans are aiming a howitzer at their own feet. Sarah Palin was one of the best things the Republicans have done since REAGAN left office. For gun owners both Bushes were either treating us with neglect or conniving against us. To let whiny cowards go around and tell tales to eager scribblers is a major mistake on the part of the Republicans.
Let's put it out there. She has more going for her than Ron Paul ever will. She has the charisma to kick the teeth out of any one. Look at the Palinmania with the entire MSM trying to club her to death like a baby seal. The Republican party should be bending over and kissing her snow boots and begging her to lead them. Instead they are looking to keep putting up more old white guys who haven't had an original thought, ever. They are going to keep paying money for focus groups and media consultants and ignore the very real reaction of people's guts.
PEOPLE love Sarah Palin. The PRESS loved Barack Obama.
So what does that hold for us? It holds that 2010 could be a continuation of the hemorrhaging of Republican seats. Then some other never was running against Obama in 2012.
By then Obama is going to make Jimmy Carter look good but you aren't going to win against even that piss-poor of a President if you are trying to run John McCain, Mitt Romney or Mike Huckabee.
The Republicans can learn from what failed and discard it. They can learn from what worked and run with it. Dump the RINOs. ALL of them, no matter their win/loss record. Get conservative or go broke. Not one of them has the chance that Lieberman took in 2006 by running independent and they won't survive running Democrat.
Run real conservatives and make sure they VOTE conservative on the job.
The American Conservative Party could be taking over in 2012 with THEIR candidate, Sarah Palin.

Despite the boasts from the left over civil war if their Messiah is not handed the Oval Office in the worst case scenario of affirmative action there will be riots BECAUSE he won in the usual places. Don't expect the ringleaders of such riots to face any jail times over that set of crimes.
I hope that I have to update this post to say that I got it wrong.
We'll see what the update brings.
With all due respect to Fits and Lem and Xavier who never gave up hope I hate to admit to being right.
When you spend as long as I have walking around with the Curse of Cassandra as my personal albatross you get used to seeing the train wreck happening long before the train leaves the station. No matter what you do that wreck is going to happen. And no one will believe you when you tell them about it.
Now recall the rest of the prediction.
Obama is going to be known, long before his four years are up, as the worst President in U.S. history. My HOPE is that starting tomorrow Reid and Pelosi start trying to steal this election away from the empty suit. Their power struggle will help make sure this nation isn't too badly damaged before 2012.
There will be no assassination of Obama. That's just horseshit from all those Kennedy idolaters who dream of what never was and never would be.
IF the RNC will finally wake up and smell the coffee they have a chance at making 2010 look like a repeat of 1992. If they keep on ignoring the conservatives, though, they will continue to be a dying party. If you want to win return to conservatism. Whoever rises to the top of the RNC in the coming days needs to have that fact pounded into his head, tattooed to the inside of his eye lids and have it playing 24/7 in his mp3 player. Pandering to illegals, continue to stab the gun owners in the back and hope your big campaign contributors can buy you an election are all Democrat strategies. They don't work for Republicans. Two elections should be more than enough evidence of this.
To everyone else put your national plans on the back burner and work on the local level. From dog catcher on up to governors and get ready for the 2010 races. Encourage your state government to deny the feds control. Emphasize state's rights.
With luck Obama won't get around to putting too many butts in federal robes before the Gruesome Twosome of Pelosi and Reid find themselves returned to the back bench. That will slow the damage Empty Suit can do.
In the New Age circles there have been those who make something out of the Mayan calendar putting a terminus on our present epoch in 2012. That's about the time that Empty Suit comes to the end of his one and only term.
As yet I don't think the two are more than coincidence. YET.
Just food for thought.

No doubt by now millions of people saw the headlines about this Halloween's murder of a 12 year old by someone shooting from inside their house.
What isn't in the headline is that the shooter was a convicted felon. You know. The kind of person who can't legally buy a gun.
Yep, that's right. Can't buy a gun legally.
So how'd he come to have a gun?
Don't expect any of the press who favor misleading stories to ask that question. They are busy writing stories of how the Mexican drug lords are getting their guns from the U.S. Never mind that these guys have full auto weapons that can't be legally imported to the U.S. for civilian sale. They MUST be coming from the U.S. gun culture and not coming into Mexico because of that nation's long-standing history of corruption in law enforcement.
Back to the story here.
Police say the 22-year-old ex-convict told them he'd been robbed and shot in the past.
Well, that truly justifies his response, doesn't it? Had this guy been someone with a job and a life he'd be looking at having everything he ever owned taken away and spending 25 or more years in prison. Since he is a low-life with a record he'll probably be back on the street in time for Thanksgiving.

In the same online venue that he announced his vote for Obama a woman who has actually worked inside the Obama, Clinton and Edwards campaigns writes of why she is voting for McCain.
Naturally you won't hear about this on the MSM. Don't expect to read it in the newspaper. This is heretical thought, someone speaking bad about the Messiah.
I'll put up some important parts but I think you should put this article in the lap of anyone you know who supports Obama.
A speechwriter for Obama, Edwards, and Clinton on why she’s voting McCain.
Since I started writing speeches more than ten years ago, I have always believed in the Democratic Party. Not anymore. Not after the election of 2008. This transformation has been swift and complete and since I’m a woman writing in the election of 2008, “very emotional.”
See campaigns get complicated when you’ve written for so many Democrats. Not only had I written for Senator Edwards, but I had also been Senator Hillary Clinton’s speechwriter. Senator Joe Biden is a “good looking” man and his care after my father almost died from an aneurysm is the kind of kindness you never forget. When I saw Edwards at a traffic light in D.C. about a year after our meeting, he asked for help and I did and it was an honor to help him with his concession speech. And when the primary ended, it was a privilege to help Michelle Obama with a stump speech, be considered as a speechwriter for the V.P. nominee again, and send friends in Chicago ideas until the financial crisis hit. This is what the Democratic Party has been for me; it’s family. Now, it doesn’t even feel like a distant cousin.
This drift started on a personal level with the fall of former Senator John Edwards. It got stronger during the Democratic National Convention when I counted the substantive mentions of poverty on one hand and a whole bunch of bad canned partisan lines against Senator John McCain. Some faith was lifted after Senator Hillary Clinton’s grace during a difficult hour. But that faith was dashed when I saw that someone had raided the Caligula set and planted the old columns at Invesco Field.
The final straw came the other week when Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher (a.k.a Joe the Plumber) asked a question about higher taxes for small businesses. Instead of celebrating his aspirations, they were mocked. He wasn’t “a real plumber,” and “They’re fighting for Joe the Hedge-Fund manager,” and the patronizing, “I’ve got nothing but love for Joe the Plumber.”
As the nation slouches toward disaster, the level of political discourse is unworthy of this moment in history. We have Republicans raising Ayers and Democrats fostering ageism with “erratic” and jokes about Depends. Sexism. Racism. Ageism and maybe some Socialism have all made their ugly cameos in election 2008. It’s not inspiring. Perhaps this is why I found the initial mocking of Joe so offensive and I realized an old line applied: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party; the Democratic Party left me.”
The party I believed in wouldn’t look down on working people under any circumstance. And Joe the Plumber is right. This is the absolutely worst time to raise taxes on anyone: the rich, the middle class, the poor, small businesses and corporations.
Our economy is in the tank for many complicated reasons, especially because people don’t have enough money. So let them keep it. Let businesses keep it so they can create jobs and stay here and weather this storm. And yet, the Democratic ideology remains the same. Our approach to problems—big government solutions paid for by taxing the rich and big and smaller companies—is just as tired and out of date as trickle down economics. How about a novel approach that simply finds a sane way to stop the bleeding?
Governor Palin and I don’t agree on a lot of things, mostly social issues. But I have grown to appreciate the Governor. I was one of those initial skeptics and would laugh at the pictures. Not anymore. When someone takes on a corrupt political machine and a sitting governor, that is not done by someone with a low I.Q. or a moral core made of tissue paper. When someone fights her way to get scholarships and work her way through college even in a jagged line, that shows determination and humility you can’t learn from reading Reinhold Niebuhr. When a mother brings her son with special needs onto the national stage with love, honesty, and pride, that gives hope to families like mine as my older brother lives with a mental disability. And when someone can sit on a stage during the Sarah Palin rap on Saturday Night Live, put her hands in the air and watch someone in a moose costume get shot—that’s a sign of both humor and humanity.
But thank God for election 2008. We can talk about the wardrobe and make-up even though most people don’t understand the details about Senator Obama’s plan with Iraq. When he says, “all combat troops,” he’s not talking about all troops—it leaves a residual force of as large as 55,000 indefinitely. That’s not ending the war; that’s half a war.
I was dead wrong about the surge and thought it would be a disaster. Senator John McCain led when many of us were ready to quit. Yet we march on as if nothing has changed, wedded to an old plan, and that too is a long way from the Democratic Party.
I can no longer justify what this party has done and can’t dismiss the treatment of women and working people as just part of the new kind of politics. It’s wrong and someone has to say that. And also say that the Democratic Party’s talking points—that Senator John McCain is just four more years of the same and that he’s President Bush—are now just hooker lines that fit a very effective and perhaps wave-winning political argument…doesn’t mean they’re true. After all, he is the only one who’s worked in a bipartisan way on big challenges.
Before I cast my vote, I will correct my party affiliation and change it to No Party or Independent. Then, in the spirit of election 2008, I’ll get a manicure, pedicure, and my hair done. Might as well look pretty when I am unemployed in a city swimming with “D’s.”
This woman is much more important than Christopher Buckley. He's got money and he got it the old-fashioned way. He inherited it.
Now that he has his he can afford to be a diletante. He'll never be out on the street. His bills will be paid. He'll still be flying first class anywhere he wants to go.
This woman is biting the hand that fed her with just cause. She knows she's not going to get handed work by Republicans and if the MSM gets their way there won't be many Republicans around to get work from, now she won't get work from Democrats.
She does have to worry over where her next meal is coming from.
When you really don't risk anything it's easy to be courageous. That's Mr. Buckley, through and through.
When you know that speaking out will very likely cost you everything then you are being courageous.

First there was Barbara West at WFTV. Now it looks like Philadelphia news station was wanting to get some of the Biden butt.
The Obama campaign has barred this crew from interviewing him. Of course John McCain can't afford the policy of not appearing on shows where he is asked hard questions or he'd never appear anywhere.
Naturally the MSM is hawking this one because of the special election year plan to go on a crime spree ending in assassination, like these losers could have stuck up a 7-11 without fucking up.
Ohhhh, but they are RACISTS!
So naturally they have super human capabilities that make them more worthy of attention than people that murder children, blow up buildings or refuse to enact oversight legislation on Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac (YES, I mean YOU, Barney Frank, you treasonous son of a bitch!).
If you believe that one I've got some ocean front property for sale in Colorado that is got your name ALL OVER IT!
Even those deranged nutjobs that wear swastikas or white sheets would have found this pair's plan laughable. They couldn't hold a job, let alone carry out a crime spree.
WASHINGTON – Federal agents have broken up a plot by two neo-Nazi skinheads to assassinateand shoot or decapitate 102 black people, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco Firearms and Explosives said Monday.
In court records unsealed Monday, federal agents said they disrupted plans to rob a gun store and target a predominantly African-American high school in a murder spree that was to begin in Tennessee. Agents said the skinheads did not identify the school by name.
Jim Cavanaugh,in charge of ATF's Nashville field office, said the two men planned to shoot 88 black people and decapitate another 14. The numbers 88 and 14 are symbolic in the white supremacist community.
The men also sought to go on a national killing spree, with Obama as its final target, Cavanaugh told The Associated Press.
"They said that would be their last, final act — that they would attempt to kill Sen. Obama," Cavanaugh said. "They didn't believe they would be able to do it, but that they would get killed trying."
An Obama spokeswoman traveling with the senator in Pennsylvania had no immediate comment.
The men, Daniel Cowart, 20, of Bells, Tenn., and Paul Schlesselman 18, of West Helena, Ark., are being held without bond. Agents seized a rifle, a sawed-off shotgun and three pistols from the men when they were arrested. Authorities alleged the two men were preparing to break into a gun shop to steal more.
Attorney Joe Byrd, who has been hired to represent Cowart, did not immediately return a call seeking comment Monday.
Cowart and Schlesselman are charged with possessing an unregistered firearm, conspiring to steal firearms from a federally licensed, and threatening a candidate for president.
The investigation is continuing, and more charges are possible, Cavanaugh said.
I have my doubts they could count to 14. 12 is easy when you have extra digits on each hand but beyond that the inbred normally have trouble. Just ask Joe Biden how many letters in JOBS.
It is time that the MSM admitted two facts. First, no one with any real skills is plotting to kill Obama. He really isn't worth it and putting Biden in the White House really would defeat the purpose. Going from a really, really piss poor dumbfuck to a gaffe machine who is even more incompetent would be a no-win situation.
The second fact is that the BATFE are cowards. They were cowards when they saddled up to assault Waco and most of the casualties taken by the BATF that day were caused by friendly fire from fellow BATF agents. That agency mostly serves as an example of how much more incompetent one can be for FBI agents. "Hey, compared to those guys we are pretty good!" It's like having a team of bad players competing agianst a team of drooling embiciles.
Like having? Or isn't that what we really have?
Anyway, the facts are out there. The BATFE consists of lying, stealing, petty, vindictive, murdering cowards. They set up a couple of bubbas that are "gonna" do bad things.
Too bad these two are such poster children for the boogey man that the Brady Bunch keeps waving. It would be interesting to see the shotgun contested under a revisit of Miller, this time with a lawyer from the plaintiff's side showing up instead of just the attorney from the government.
Reporters have finally figured out how to troll for photos on MySpace. Courtesy of that knowledge that is only 10 years late comes this photo of one of the Nazi-wannabes.
What anyone worth their 2nd Amendment should note is that this idjit has his boogerhook on the bang button.
What do we call people who pose like this and even put those photos out in public?
(Cue reverb) IDIOTSsssss Withhhhhh GUNNNNnnnnnnnnnnnssssssssss! (Reverbbbb offffff. OFF I SAID!)
I credit the wise and wonderful Xavier, my blog father, with starting this exercise in education.
He had featured such regularly on his blog Xavier Thoughts and now he has launched a baby blog for this feature alone. Take a peek at his work. You can thank me for turning you on to him later.
Idiots With Guns archive.
Despite the BATFE rushing out to show how brave they are to point at the boogey men with the swastikas it seems that even the "authorities" have trouble swallowing this pair of losers as a credible threat to more than a case of beer.
Ya don't say, Sherlock! Stupid ol' me could see that. So why can't the BATFE?
Oh, right. They have to show something accomplished to their presumed leader.
To honor the foiling of the White Tux Terror Plot let's put in a musical number:
WESTFIELD, Mass. – An 8-year-old boy died after accidentally shooting himself in the head while firing an Uzi submachine gun under adult supervision at a gun fair.The above story is an important one to note. I don't know if someone wasn't doing all they could. I wasn't there.
The boy lost control of the weapon while firing it Sunday at the Machine Gun Shoot and Firearms Expo at the Westfield Sportsman's Club, police Lt. Lawrence Vallierpratte said.
The boy, Christopher Bizilj of Ashford, Conn., was with a certified instructor and "was shooting the weapon down range when the force of the weapon made it travel up and back toward his head, where he suffered the injury," a police statement said.
Christopher died at Baystate Medical Center.
Police said the boy's father, Charles Bizilj, attended the event with his son. The father is the medical director of emergency medicine at Johnson Memorial Hospital, in Stafford Springs, Conn.
Although police called it a "self-inflicted accidental shooting," police and the Hampden district attorney's office were investigating, officials said.
"We are going to review all the circumstance regarding what happened, who was involved, what authorities they may or may not have had, who was supervising," District Attorney William Bennett said Monday.
It is legal for children to fire a weapon if they have permission from a parent or legal guardian and are supervised by a properly certified and licensed instructor, Lt. Hipolito Nunez said.
What I do know is that you could fill a couple of school buses with 8 year old boys killed on bicycles, swimming pools, skate boards and playgrounds every year.
While one child's death is a tragedy it is nothing compared to the tragedy of letting criminals become the only armed persons in our society. Look south, to Mexico, where citizens are forbidden effective self-defense. The government has no control over significant parts of the country because the drug lords, already in the import/export business, are well armed with full-auto firearms.
How many 8 year old Mexican boys are dead because of crime in that nation?
A lot more than shoot themselves accidentally while at a gun range up here.
The latest post is regarding Obama's long-standing positions on "spreading the wealth around".
It's pure socialism and he intends to use it for the benefit of African Americans.
He's not interested in making sure the playing field is level so that people who work hard share in opportunity. He wants to take from those who have to give to those who won't work. In that way he can keep the won't works indebted to him and his party.
Not the political scene. That still is more horrifying than all the slasher pics ever made.
Let's face it. The Obamabots shuffle through life like extras on a "Living Dead" set. "Change! Change!"
No, the promising is a book I followed a link to. Since money is tight it may be a time before I can actually read it.

At the center of both are troubled women and racism.
Ashley Todd is probably a name and face familiar to you by now. She's the college student who took the year off to work for the McCain campaign and has admitted (after less than 24 hours) that she was perpetrating a hoax. Quite rightly most news sources, including Fox, Hot Air, Newsbusters and such took this pill with caution. They waited to see how it would pan out before starting to call for people's heads.
Ms. Todd's hoax featured a boogey man right out of some poorly drawn, worse written KKK or White Power comic book. She is facing criminal prosecution for filing a false police report.
Meanwhile back at the ranch...
We have quite another story. Someone who by all rights should be wearing a prison jumpsuit is pimping her new book where she continues to slander men proven innocent.
Crystal Mangum is a name familiar to anyone who has read of the Duke Lacrosse players who were falsely accused of rape. We know the story, including the fact that faculty members wanted to destroy the accused men without any proof, just the words of the accuser.
Even after the physical evidence cleared the accused there were faculty who would not apologize for calling for a lynching.
It is less well known that while Nifong got a slap on the wrist sentence and disbarred (instead of tarred, feathered and publicly executed to warn all the rest of the DAs what can happen when they railroad innocent people) Mangum was never charged.
Now, let's go into this. Ashley Todd recanted in less than 24 hours.
Mangum STILL insists she was raped and is publishing a book. She is NOT sorry she attempted to destroy three innocent people and is sucking around for sympathy. And cash. Lots of cash.
This disparity brings to mind another infamous charge or racisim and rape. Tawana Brawley. She was never brought up on criminal charges, either.
It is interesting to note that even KNOWING that the accused were innocent Patrica J. Williams wrote of Brawley "has been the victim of some unspeakable crime. No matter how she got there. No matter who did it to her— and even if she did it to herself."
I really must ask: Is this what Patricia J. Williams would say of Ashley Todd?
I'll put money that she won't.

Having behaved like a banana republic dictator by trying to strip his constituents of their rights Michael Bloomberg has now moved on to becoming Dictator For Life.
New York City is officially becoming a Third World nation within the borders of the United States.
He said the financial crisis on Wall Street and his record as mayor meant he deserved the chance to re-run.
Right, you lying sack of shit. You had all this time as mayor during good years so now that the trouble has finally hit the fan you want a "do over" card because of your own mismanagement.

That said I was perturbed to learn of a War In Heaven, or at least a War on the Web. Seems some folks wanted to take what Oleg Volk started and try to make personal profit from it.
I don't know your opinion but that's what the comments section is for. Out here on the front page I get the only opinion that counts.
What they did to Oleg Volk sucks. It was wrong, wrong, wrong. THR became THR because of Oleg Volk and the people he chose as moderators. The attracted the users.
I'm not running anyone down by saying this. I'm saying that what's right is right and that board was Oleg Volk as much as his photographs. Just because you built the camera doesn't make you Oleg Volk or the photographs. It must makes you a tool. And that's the kind of person who tried to take THR away from Oleg.
So Oleg is moving. I would recommend others to give a thought to bookmarking the new The High Road at http://www.thehighroad.us
The following is from an e-mail announcement by Oleg Volk.
I don't know the guy personally. Wish I did but I'm still happy to be able to see his work and share his joy of freedom, firearms and fun.
Welcome to the new home of The High Road(tm) forum. My name is Oleg Volk,
and I am the owner of The High Road(tm). When I started the forum in
2002, my vision was to create a place where people from around the world could
engage in cordial discussion of RKBA related matters. Since
then, you have helped make The High Road(tm) one of the best places on the web
for learning about firearms, for educating new shooters and for supporting
effective advocacy of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. Due to pending legal
issues, I am moving the forum to a new home at TheHighRoad.us. This is the
one and only official site at this time, owned by me. The same high
standards of civility apply. In the near future, we will provide more than just
a forum. The High Road(tm) is becoming an information and activism center for
the Right to Keep and Bear Arms. With the help of GeoVario, our new host, The
High Road(tm) is now online in its new home. The new location of The High
Road(tm) -- http://www.thehighroad.us -- will serve our members while the
conversion of the .org domain name by THR's former sysadmin is being challenged
in court (Copy of the complaint available: http://www.geovario.com/legal/Complaint1.pdf ). Feel free to
mirror this announcement on your blog (here is a link to mine with details of
this matter and how you can help. http://olegvolk.livejournal.com/474369.html ). If you link to
THR, please update the link to point to thehighroad.us Eventually, both
.us and .org addresses will point to the same site again. Thank you all - Oleg
Volk, Owner The High Road(tm)

WORRIED bookmakers have stopped taking bets on aliens showing up on Earth.
It follows a flurry of bets amid internet buzz that a massive intergalactic spaceship will appear tomorrow.
Videos and messages on YouTube, blogs and UFO websites are buzzing with predictions that a vessel from the alien Federation Of Light will be visible in our skies for three days.
It may all sound more oddball than odds-on - but bookies William Hill are taking it seriously enough to temporarily suspend betting on proof of the existence of intelligent alien life being confirmed by PM Gordon Brown.
The rumour is believed to have been started by "channeler" Blossom Goodchild, who claimed to have received a psychic tip-off.
The stories have spread, along with a warning it would "cause panic among the masses".
One message claims: "They have carefully selected this time to show up and are doing it out of goodwill because of the great evils behind this world.
"It is time to become free from wars, pestilence, famine, poverty, sickness, disease, rich and poor and all the world sufferings."
Spokespersons for the Obama campaign confirm that Obama plans to declare war on the aliens.
"Obama is here to free us from wars, pestilence, famine, poverty, sickness, disease, rich and poor. Well, he's certainly going to free us from the burden of being rich!" Spokesperson Gwen Ifill stated.
MSNBC has gone to full 24 hour coverage of the alien crisis. Tune in this evening as Kieth Olbermann announces that the aliens are "THE WORST PERSONS IN THE UNIVERSE!" for daring to try and co-opt the message of Hope and Change brought to you only by Obama.
Remember, you can't spell Berkinow without B.O.
The Obama campaign has learned that the aliens have arrived without the required visas. They have made a hasty about-face on the issue, giving them promises of full citizenship and instant status as welfare recipients.
"When others say we can't welcome invaders to our planet I say 'Yes we can!'" Obama is quoted as saying.
Spokesperson for the aliens, Ron Paul, says that the offer is proof there is no intelligent life on this planet and they visit has been canceled.
We now return you to your regularly scheduled program of after dinner music featuring Glen Miller and his band performing "Stardust".
This is Orson Wells signing off from Grover's Mill, New Jersey.

Dennis Hopper, the US actor-director perhaps best known for the 1969 road-movie " ", is praying for victory by Barack Obama in next month's elections, he said on Monday.
"I voted for Bush, father and son, but this time I'll vote for Obama," he told journalists at the opening of a show on his life and work at the Paris cinematheque.
Hopper is to be handed France's order of Commander of Arts and Letters by the culture minister later Monday.
It is fitting that Hopper has chosen to support Obama since he's ticked off at "lies". The best thing to do when you think you are lied to is go find someone you KNOW DAMN WELL is going to lie to you, over and over and over.
This choice makes you, Dennis Hopper, a GENIUS IN FRANCE!

Of all the endorsements that should send a shiver down the spine of a thinking human being this one should be measured on the Kelvin scale.
If, after seeing this, you are still inclined to vote for Obama I strongly suggest that you seek medical attention.

But I fear that it won't be enough.
Our media is not honest or the empty suit wouldn't have made it past the primaries.
However the real story isn't the election. It's how the election will be stolen.
LAS VEGAS - Nevada authorities seized records Tuesday from a group they accused of submitting fraudulent voter-registration forms — including for the starting lineup of the Dallas Cowboys.
"Tony Romo is not registered to vote in the state of Nevada, and anybody trying to pose as Terrell Owens won't be able to cast a ballot on Nov. 4," said Secretary of State Ross Miller, referring to star players on the pro football team.
What you are looking at is the pay off for being a "community organizer" and for all the handouts that ACORN has gotten from Obama. Not content with the dead voting in Illinois we now have the star quarterback for the Las Vegas Cowboys signed up, registered as...
According to its national Web site, the group has registered 1.3 million people nationwide for the Nov. 4 election. It has encountered complaints of fraud stemming from registration efforts in Wisconsin, North Carolina, New Mexico, Michigan, Ohio and Missouri.
1.3 Million "new" voters in battleground states that could go either way. ALL created by ACORN which owes Obama big time and which looks to reap major rewards if they come through.
I think it's time to start talking about what we do when the election is stolen.
officials suspect fake voter registration
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Officials in Missouri, a hard-fought jewel in the
presidential race, are sifting through possibly hundreds of questionable or
duplicate voter-registration forms submitted by an advocacy group that has been
accused of election fraud in other states.
Folks, this is the tip of a very big, stinking Obamaberg. ACORN is Obama's pet. No matter what they are going to deliver the votes of such important citizens as Donald Duck, Ronald McDonald and Benjamin Franklin for Obamessiah.
This election has already been stolen. You can quote me on that.
We also know who stole it.
Yeah. I know. To accuse a black guy of stealing something is racist.
Might as well add to the list of trumped up charges when they come to take me to the Citzen Re-education Center.

Well, this movie doesn't condemn America, freedom or firearms. It condemns terrorism, Michael Moore and the ACLU.
Got you interested?
An American Carol is the funniest movie I've seen in some time. I believe it's the funniest movie David Zucker has made in some time.
Will it convert a liberal? No. Movies don't work miracles. Will it make you laugh? Very likely.
Disclaimer: No actual ACLU zombies were harmed during the making of this movie. Any resemblance between liberals skewered in this movie and actual liberals is purely intended, get over it you whining turd. I hope Oliver Stone's next job is to wash David Zucker's car and if he keeps making movies like he's been doing it very likely will be.
Today he has a very important story about Obama's one claim to executive office, the one time he doesn't want to bring up.
That McCain didn't bring up this information before I rather telling. You would think at least ONE of his staff would have looked into this.
Obama and the Attempt to Destroy the Second AmendmentGo to the link and read the rest.
As a presidential candidate, Barack Obama must demonstrate executive experience, but he remains strangely silent about his eight years (1994-2002) as a director of the  Joyce Foundation, a billion dollar tax-exempt organization. He has one obvious reason: during his time as director,  Joyce Foundation spent millions creating and supporting anti-gun organizations.
There is another, less known, reason.
During Obama’s tenure, the Joyce Foundation board planned and implemented a program targeting the Supreme Court. The work began five years into Obama’s directorship, when the Foundation had experience in turning its millions into anti-gun “grassroots” organizations, but none at converting cash into legal scholarship.
The plan’s objective was bold: the judicial obliteration of the Second Amendment.

It is important to remember this picture.
This person is a typical Obama voter. There is NO WAY she will vote for McCain and Palin. She's going to cast her vote for Obama. Probably absentee, but most definitely her vote will be case for Obama.
Friends don't let friends vote for Obama.
You don't want YOUR friends to wind up like this!

I think this falls under the "stopped clock" rule, though. I'm sure they won't do it again anytime soon.
Even if the NYT did stand up, in a way, for the truth the AP is quick to bow to their Saudi Masters.
Since the AP gets around 50% of its annual revenue by producing news for consumption by Arabic speakers (news that is usually anti-US, anti-Israel and anti-Christian) you can see that they have an economic motive for trying to kiss greasy Saudi butt.
Newspapers that carried an advertising supplement in recent weeks containing a DVD critical of radical Muslims have faced complaints from readers and questions about whether newspapers should offer a platform to everyone willing to pay for distribution.
Although a few papers refused to carry the DVD, about 70 including The New York Times distributed it on the grounds that rejecting it would violate the sponsor's right to free speech. The decision generated letters, cancellations and even a protest.
The Clarion Fund, a nonprofit founded in 2006 to address "the most urgent threat of radical Islam," spent millions of dollars distributing the DVDs mostly in battleground election states. That targeting led to further outcry about the group's motives.
Mostly because anytime someone tries to raise awareness of the jihadist threat they are clearly anti-Obama, don't you know? And they are icky, knuckle-dragging, gun and god clinging bitter racists). The fact that we are under threat EVERY year is to be forgotten if it may be used against a man who wants to have lunch with Hezbollah and coffee with Hamas.
"I cannot believe that I was sent the hate-inflaming, fear-mongering video disk `Obsession' in my newspaper!" Margaret Lewis of Durham, N.C., wrote to The News & Observer. "What will you enclose next? KKK robes?"
It's good to see that Mohammed L. adopted the Palestinian habit of cyber-dressing like a woman and remember to make it an American sounding name when writing the paper. The peole who watch this movie (I have it on DVD) can clearly see that the hatred is on the side of those who hate America. This is not KKK hatred. This is centuries old and not going to quietly melt into history.
Dozens of people protested outside The Oregonian's offices on Monday, the morning after the Portland, Ore., newspaper carried the DVD. One said he canceled his subscription. Mayor Tom Potter had tried to persuade the paper not to run the ad."Dozens"? When it's protestors against something that the AP doesn't like that means 6 or 7 people. If this were a protest by persons supporting right to life or the RKBA and it was 300-400 then it would be called "dozens" by the AP.
Also let's look at this Tom Potter. Why would he even be involved in advertising being put into the local newspaper? It's not a city function. It's private enterprise and as such is protected from his office.
Yes, THAT kind of mayor. Let's not have the police of a major metropolitan American city cooperate with the FBI anti-terrorism task force. That might step on some people's toes. Sandy toes. Like I said. He's the kind of mayor that hates America.
On April 22, 2005, Potter withdrew the Portland Police Bureau from the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force. This action came after a dispute of two years over supervision, security clearances for Potter and then-Chief of Police Derrick Foxworth.
In October 2006 Potter introduced a resolution affirming the City’s commitment to the inclusion of immigrants and refugees in civic life, and convened the city’s first-ever Immigrant and Refugee Task Force to recommend strategies to address barriers to engagement.
Cough, cough. Santuary. Cough.
Gee, the opponents of this movie really do have a lot in common.
It was pure profit motive for the NYT to run with this. They don't give a rat's butthole for true freedom and never did. But with subcriptions down, ad revenue down and layoffs before them, layoffs behind them they are looking at having to turn out the lights on their brand new building and go home.
In other words, they sold out.
Oh well, so long as the did the right thing, for once.
But sometimes that is just stupid.
FORT MYERS, Fla. - Authorities say a Fort Myers man shot himself in the arm after his girlfriend refused to have sex with him. The reported that a 29-year-old man and his girlfriend returned home from a bar early Wednesday morning.
The girlfriend told deputies that her boyfriend wanted to get intimate, but she just wanted to go to sleep. When she refused, he became irate.
Authorities said the girlfriend went to a spare bedroom, and several minutes later she heard two gunshots. She told deputies her boyfriend came into her room and threatened her. He then stumbled into the kitchen before falling into the oven, knocking himself unconscious.
Now, if this guy had a badge he would probably get time off with pay, a union lawyer to represent him in court and be returned to duty with his gun still on his hip.

I'm not talking about freedom of expression. I'm talking about the denial of Constitutional rights to freedom of expression that is being engaged in. It's not being done by Bush or Cheney or anyone on the right. It's the anti-war movement.
Flags belonging to men and women on display outside their own homes are being set on fire. It's not confined to one geographic location.
I say this is repression of freedom of expression because the arsonists doing the burning are denying the rights of the flag owners to make their expression known.
No judge who isn't sucking around for a poke in the snoot is going to get behind anyone claiming that they have a freedom to set fire to another person's property. That's not freedom of expression and is the working definition of arson.
Cops, however, fail to treat these arsons properly. They treat them as vandalism, as does the press. How long before one of these "pranks" burns a family or even a neighborhood down?
Someone wants to buy their own flag and burn it on their own property after they observe all local fire ordinances, burn bans, smoking ordinances, and do an EPA study to ensure that their freedom of expression doesn't compromise the economy or cause Global Warming is welcome to. IF they do all of the above. Leave out one and they should be hit with the full force of law for the crime they commit. If a business can't have an open air incinerator neither should some "performance artist".
Now let's get back to what is actually happening. These citizens who are flying their flags are flying US flags, not the flags of other nations and especially not the flag of Mexico. The people doing the torching are the usual assortment of cowards which is why they are in the anti-war movement to start with. If they had the courage of their convictions they would call a press conference, do their act and then go to jail to take their medicine. Instead it's torch and run.
Civil disobedience means you take your medicine, be it one hour in a holding cell or 20 years. Torching another person's property, no matter how you feel about what it symbolizes, is a cowardly act of arson.

Once more a cop shows off how he's the ONLY ONE capable of handling firearms.
Even so, I really want to shove my foot up the ass of the Accredited Journalist who thinks that "Glock 40" is a model number.
RIVERDALE, Utah - The police chief who shot himself in the ankle was waving a loaded pistol and being careless, according to two students who were attending his class to qualify for a concealed-weapons permit. "We were told the gun is the chief's personal sidearm, but it looked to me like he didn't know anything about the gun," Lewis Walker said.
Bart Ulm, another student seeking certification to carry a concealed weapon, said he was surprised Chief Dave Hansen was using a loaded gun to show how it worked.
"Right then, I was very leery, because there's no need to have live ammo in a gun in the class. But I figured he's the chief, so he must know what he's doing," Ulm told the Standard-Examiner of Ogden.
Hansen held the Glock 40 under a table to disassemble it when a bullet fired, Walker said.
The chief cried, "I'm hit," and fell over. Students who were screaming "Officer down!" were urged to call 911.
The gun went off in a conference room Saturday at Riverdale police headquarters.
Hansen was taken to McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden for surgery and released Monday, Lt. James Ebert said.
Ebert said the findings of an internal investigation would be announced Wednesday. He declined to offer specifics but disputed the accounts of Ulm and Walker, describing the pair as "disgruntled."
Other students "did not share that feeling" about the chief, Ebert told The Associated Press.
Walker said he didn't have confidence in the investigation.
"I think Riverdale police are just trying to keep this quiet and act like the chief is a hero. But if you ask me, he's really stupid," Walker said. "His state certification to teach concealed-weapons classes should be taken away from him. This was totally gross negligence."
Ulm said there was a moment of levity during the emergency.
He said an officer at the scene joked that "instead of shooting himself, he should have used the Taser."

Catholics invent things. Protestant invent things. Jews invent things. Athiests, Bhuddists and pagans invent things.
Muslims send out beggars and live on the proceeds.
This is what Muhammed wrought. This is Allah the Almighty at work.
There are 1.2 million Colis in the world today, children trafficked to work for the benefit of others. Those who lure them into servitude make $15 billion annually, according to the International Labor Organization.
It's big business in. In the capital of alone, at least 7,600 child beggars work the streets, according to a study released in February by the ILO, the and the . The children collect an average of 300 African francs a day, just 72 cents, reaping their keepers $2 million a year.
Most of the boys — 90 percent, the study found — are sent out to beg under the cover of Islam, placing the problem at the complicated intersection of greed and tradition. For among the cruelest facts of Coli's life is that he was not stolen from his family. He was brought to Dakar with their blessing to learn Islam's holy book.
Want to know why Islam is a religion that should be wiped out?
Read 'em and weep.
It could be worse. He could be raped by an Imam. Oh, wait, that's in the next article.
It was getting dark. Coli had less than half the 72 cents he was told to bring back. He was afraid. He knew what happened to children who failed to meet their daily quotas.
They were stripped and doused in cold water. The older boys picked them up like hammocks by their ankles and wrists. Then the teacher whipped them with an electrical cord until the cord ate their skin.
Coli's head hurt with hunger. He could already feel the slice of the wire on his back.
He slipped away, losing himself in a tide of honking cars. He had 20 cents in his tomato can.

What's not being said is how many of the prisoners in those eight states are in this nation illegally. Not one of those states is sending a bill to the nation of Mexico demanding payment for feeding, clothing and housing their citizens.
Officials acknowledge that the idea carries risks, but they say they have no choice because of huge budget gaps brought on by the slumping economy.
"If we don't find a way to better manage the population at the state prison, we will be forced to spend money to expand the state's prison system — money we don't have," said Jeff Neal, a spokesman forGov. Don Carcieri.
At least eight states are considering freeing inmates or sending some convicts to rehabilitation programs instead of prison, according to an Associated Press analysis of legislative proposals. If adopted, the early release programs could save an estimated $450 million in California and Kentucky alone.
Even if none of the criminals being let out early is incarcerated for a violent crime they are only in prison for crimes they were convicted of. Not necessarily all of the crimes they COMMITTED. A guy who breaks into your grandmother's house, rapes her, beats her into a coma and steals her purse may only be in prison for stealing her purse as part of a plea bargain.
Laying off prison guards and making it more difficult to send parole violators back to state prison would account for part of the savings.So, on top of letting the bad boys out early we are going to make it more difficult to put the baddest boys back inside when they misbehave. That will REALLY send a message to criminals, won't it? "Yeah, he is still dealing drugs but in ten or twenty more arrests we may actually be able to put him in jail for it."
By intentionally raising the number of criminals at large in the nation state governments are ensuring more death, more hardship, more suffering. That some of the states considering this are also guilty of disarming citizens is proof that states are at war with the law-abiding citizens.

Speaking of Democrat candidates what has been going on at Trinity United Church of Christ now that Jeremiah Wright has been forcibly retired?
Why, it looks like those merry folks have just turned over an entirely new leaf! They aren't being divisive ANY MORE!
The whole hoopla was all the work of ONE BAD APPLE, crazy old "Uncle" Jeremiah.
Or was it.....
"The new pastor of Barack Obama’s church delivered a defiant defense of its retiring reverend Sunday, comparing media coverage of Rev. Jeremiah Wright Jr. to a modern-day lynching that resembles Jesus’ death at the hands of the Romans."
Yeah. Jesus didn't have to die or anything. Just go into retirement. Oh and instead of crucifixion he was "lynched".
Why must these jerks not admit to the totally obvious? Wright got a small portion of what happened to Don Imus even though one of them is clearly an entertainer and the other a veteran religious leader.
“The lynching was national news. The RNN, the Roman News Network, was reporting it and NPR, National Publican Radio had it on the radio. The Jerusalem Post and the Palestine Times all wanted exclusives, they searched out the young ministers, showed up unannounced at their houses, tried to talk with their families, called up their friends, wanted to get a quote on how do you feel about the lynching?” he continued.
ROMAN News Network? Looks like someone is carrying their analogy a bit too far.
Bishop Vashti Murphy McKenzie, the first female bishop in the AME Church, also delivered a sermon, in which she talked about visionaries like King and Gandhi and “Jeremiah” (it was unclear whether she meant Wright), and argued that their words weren’t about “anger,” but about “a passion that demands confrontation.”
Unclear? Was she supposed to be referring to the prophet from Judaism that she and her associates call a "gutter religion"?
“Dr. Wright represents the best among us … An attack on this man of God is an attack on all those of the cloth who believe in the social Gospel of liberation. And I will not stand for it,” he (Rev. Samuel B. McKinney of Mount Zion Baptist Church in Seattle) wrote.
So here we have more folks who believe that on 9/11/01 that 3000 people died as a result of "chickens coming home to roost"?
Moss issued several pleas to congregants to donate to what he called the “Resurrection Fund,” stressing that during this time of battle, money is needed to defend the church. He offered no additional specifics about the fund, telling churchgoers he didn’t want to get into it because Trinity is streaming the service live on the Web and the services are available for purchase on DVD.
In other words, let's not get caught doing something even more embarrassing. Now that we have learned that Whitey can watch YouTube.

I've turned a non-gunny into a CHLer.
I can not claim a direct hand in teaching her to shoot, that was left to a distinguished member of the TSRA who is truly qualified. My own journey to become one of the "permitted" to carry was the seed that is now bearing fruit.
Think of the politics this will influence. Just one person, but one person on OUR side, not theirs.
Think of the effect on crime. Men who decide that they should move to one of the gun-hater states to do their crimes.
Give a person a fish they can eat for a day. Teach them to operate a gun and they won't have to kneel to any king.
An empty belly is easy to cure. A free citizen is not as easily created but I played a part in making one.
I'm very happy.

What kind of handgun are YOU?
How prescient of them. That's what was on my hip as I took their test.
Now you know why I have a problem finding a BAG day gun. I probably own what I would want.
The Para Ord Slim Hawg is whispering but it's a short barreled .45. They don't spit out at the proper velocity for a lot of ammo to properly expand.
I would also have to add in some new moves to my presentation practice to deactivate the safety on the draw.
I've also fired one of the short .45s and was not overly enthused about my performance. Like a snubby .38 they require devotion to the basics to really make them effective past bad breath distances. That's one reason why it's on offer at the pawn shop, I'll wager.
I'm leaning more towards a Commander sized .45 if I pick one up. Or a G 30 SF. Nothing new to learn there. But why? I have a G 27. More concealable and those bullets scoot faster out of a Polygonal barrel. I could buy it a G 23 barrel and really make them scoot.
Or keep finding ways to stick this G 22 into concealment.
Oh well. I'm in negotiations to swap a couple of lesser guns for an AK variation. A BAG day without actually spending cash may be in order.
Monday, March 10, 2008
Yes, a handgun is great. Ruger SR9? It's a 9 mm. Ruger LCP? I'm already packing a Glock 27, why would I downgrade?
Glock 30 SF? Again, it's no smaller than the Glock 27 I already pack on my work days. And it's not much smaller than the PT 145 I own. If I want a short barreled .45 I have one.
Rifle? Yes, I want a .308 (AKA 7.62 x 51 mm) rifle. I've been thinking of an Ishapore Enfield and that is still in the running. I've seen some sweet other rifles, too but outside of my current price range.
AK? Yes, I want one more than I want a poodle shooter. In the running, too.
Shotgun? I have one. Do I need more than one? Not yet.
A .22 rifle? I don't shoot the ones I own enough to justify another one.
A Glock .22 conversion? Doesn't qualify for BAG day unless I get a receiver with it.
A J-frame or Ruger snubby? In the running.

Aside from being one of the most quoted Genesis tunes that line perfectly characterizes Recreate 68.
Tonight is the meeting they are holding at the Gypsy House Cafe. I'm glad I'm in Texas.
Now that Clinton and Obama are both locked into wrestling with each other until the convention we are now forced to watch as the DNC tries to decide on pigment or lack of penis as a justification to run for President.
That's what it comes down to. The person with the most melanin or the person lacking a penis.
Recreate 68 is aimed at staging protests in Denver and again I am OVERJOYED at no longer living in the city of the Brown Cloud.
Mayor John Hickenlooper may be a half-baked worthless and useless figurehead but the professional bureaucrats who really run Denver know this maxim by heart.
Their people will be the same ones who stomped up and down the streets of Denver on Jan 1, 2000. You WILL be beaten. You WILL be gassed. You WILL be charged with crimes you may not have committed. You WILL regret coming to Denver.
I'd ask you to check out real estate while you are there but none of the member of R-68 could afford to buy me lunch, let alone a house. They are all still living at home in their parent's basement.

ELEVEN students from Julia R. Masterman Laboratory and Demonstration School were filming an antiviolence video when they were attacked after school Monday by other youths, school district officials said yesterday."Hey, I have an idea! Let's get rid of violence by making a video! THAT's what has been missing in this city!"
In a city where certain elements have been encouraged to avoid learning the lessons of the jungle this irony hits the sidewalk faster than pigeon poop falling from the statue of Willie Penn.
Gee, Captain. What did you think would be the result of revolving door courts that keep dumping troublemakers back into the community would be?
"We normally don't have trouble at [Masterman]," said Police Capt. Dennis Wilson. "A group that was looking for trouble ran into them and wanted to fight."
At one time in this nation we locked up kids who beat up other kids. The result was that our kids got an education. Now we don't lock up kids who beat up other kids and our kids are not getting educated. I wonder how we should fix this?
Make a video about it?
And how many of these "youths" will be jailed?
Ironically, school officials said, the students from Masterman, 17th and Spring Garden streets, were filming a video about rampant violence in Philadelphia. The video included a skit in which one student shoots another because the shooter mistakenly believes that the other stole his sneakers.
The 11 Masterman students, members of the school's African-American Cultural Committee, were in front of the Community College of Philadelphia, across the street at 17th and Spring Garden, about 4:30 when a larger group from nearby schools approached, Assistant Principal Mary Ann Tancredi said.
The Masterman students reported that their assailants had been looking for someone specific, asking, " 'Is that him? Is that him?' " according to schools spokesman Fernando Gallard.
Although the youths did not find their apparent target, Gallard said, they began attacking several Masterman students, some of whom ran back into the school to escape.
Arrested were Malique Sherril, 18, a Benjamin Franklin High School student, and two 13-year-old boys who attend Laura Wheeling Waring School. Police said all three would be charged with aggravated assault, simple assault and related charges. All three will be suspended.SUSPENDED! Oh, the HORROR! Kids who are probably disruptive to class and apparently only go to school in order to cause trouble are going to be SUSPENDED!
How about slapping all of them into a jail until such time that they are ready for prison? What were their prior records? Why do I have a feeling that they could probably find their baby daddy in there?
Great job, Philly mayor and cops. You can burn down a city block to get at a few loud-mouths and eventually will stop a serial killer when the stench of rotting flesh coming from his house gets to be too much for his neighbors but when you are watching the next generation of trouble makers at work you just turn away. Let the few good kids who are at least TRYING to learn (despite being handicapped by liberal falsehoods) are being harassed. And the Philly mayor will sit there with his thumb up his butt and let crime get worse.
Malcolm Carrington, 13, of West Oak Lane, said he and his classmates had been taunted by students from other schools while walking to and from the nearby Broad Street Subway.
"They think we're not streetwise," he said. "Sometimes I worry about becoming a victim. That's why we walk in groups."
