What kind of handgun are YOU?

A Glock?!? In .40cal?!? Hell NO!

I like to consider myself at least a 1911 .45... in my dreams I aspire to be a .50 Desert Eagle.

Pithy observations

"Police Protection" is an oxymoron. Free citizens must protect
themselves. Police do not protect you from crime; they usually just
investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to
clean up the mess. (Having been a LEO with twelve years on the streets, I can personally attest to this.)

Remember: the average response time to a 911 call is over 4 minutes.
The average response time of a 357 magnum is 1400 FPS. (feet per

Personally, I carry a gun because I'm too young to die and too
old to take an ass whoopin.

Amazing new discovery

Seems that the Obamatron has ginned up a whole new element!!!:

A new element has been discovered, however it's been in existence for
some years now.

Lawrence Livermore Laboratories has discovered the heaviest
element yet known to science. The new element, Governmentium(
Gv), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198
assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.

These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons,
which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles
called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert; however, it
can be detected, because it impedes every reaction with which it comes
into contact. A tiny amount of Governmentium can cause a reaction
that would normally take less than a second, to take from four days to
four years to complete.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 2- 6 years; It does not
decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of
the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.

In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time,
since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons,
forming isodopes.

This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to
believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a critical
concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical

When catalysed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium,
an element that radiates just as much energy as Governmentium since it
has half as many peons but twice as many morons.

Quote of the Day

"America is at that awkward stage. It's too late to work within the
system, but too early to shoot the bastards."
Claire Wolfe (101 Things to Do 'Till the Revolution'.)

I received this quote as part of an e-mail I got this morning, and it really resonated with the way I feel...I'm just thinking that the time to 'shoot the bastards' may just be a lot closer than Ms. Wolfe thinks.

Urban Intrusion

"Exercises" like THIS ONE scare the hell out of me.

As an ex Grunt, I see the need for training to specific types of operations, and Urban Operations are among the toughest assignments any military unit has to engage in. Training saves lives, of both the soldiers and the civilians engaged in any conflict. Having said that, something about this training exercise makes my skin crawl. My gut tells me there is more involved, and in my years as a LEO I learned to trust my gut. There are times that there are subtle hints that you are not consciously aware of that warn you of danger, and my spider sense is tingling all over this one.

Yeah, I know it makes me sound like a conspiracy theorist, but I wouldn't trust ANY Administration with this type of power, much less a Socialist one like Obama's. Posse Comitatus was put into place to prevent any political entity in the U.S. from arbitrarily using troops to perform Police functions.

Ask yourself WHY they would find a need to train for such activity unless they are planning to use it in the near future? Given Mr. Obama's past record on gun control, and even more importantly, the past history of his appointee for AG on gun control, doesn't it strike just a little twinge of fear that this might just be a rehearsal for the future; or if nothing else, a trial balloon to see how it floats with the American public?

Only time will tell, but, remember, "just because you're paranoid doesn't necessarily mean that there is no one out to get you.", and in the case of our rights as free people, I believe a little paranoia is healthy if you want to keep those rights intact.

Biofuels SINFULL?

Sheik Mohamed al-Najimi of the Saudi Islamic Jurisprudence Academy told Saudi newspaper Shams that the prophet Mohammed banned alcohol for all uses...and since most bio-fuels are simply natural sugars converted to ethyl alcohol, it would be sinful for a Muslim to use. I wonder if the recent drastic drop in oil prices has anything to do with this opinion?

al-Najimi did stress that this was his opinion as a scholar and not to be considered a fatwa...YET. He stated that it is a topic meriting further study to finally determine.

Funny how when the tide turns against the Islamists, they always find some way to use their religion to obfuscate the issues involved....

Quote of the Day

"Our task of creating a socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed." -Sarah Brady

STILL believe the Brady Bunch don't want to confiscate your weapons?

What will it take to wake you up to the GFW Agenda; the police breaking down your front door in a search for your (heretofore) legally owned weapons and ammunition? Get educated, get aware to what is truly happening, get involved in protecting one of your most basic rights.

If you don't do these thing, and soon, May I wish you all the happiness in the United Socialist States of Amerika, Comrade?, as for me, I believe I will be one of those "Capitalist Running Dog Counter-Revolutionaries that the State protected you from. I may be dead, but I died free...may your chains ever lay lightly upon you, but you will deserve to wear them if you won't fight before they come to put them on you.

Subject: Stutter

A teacher is explaining biology to her 4th grade students. 'Human beings are the only animals that stutter,' she says.

A little girl raises her hand. 'I had a kitty-cat who stuttered.'

The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories could become, asked the girl to describe the incident.

'Well', she began, 'I was in the back yard with my kitty and the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!'

'That must've been scary,' said the teacher.

'It sure was,' said the little girl. 'My kitty raised her back, went Sssss, Sssss, Sssss' and before she could say 'Shit!', the Rottweiler ate her!

The teacher had to leave the room.

Friday the 13TH.

Went to my primary care quack today for my monthly check under the hood.
As quacks go, he's a real prince among the usual frogs of the profession.

He had some good news and some bad news. My blood pressures are still holding steady at only slightly above "normal", so no changes in the meds for now....then came the sledgehammer...seems my blood sugars are averaging over 450 and my last A1C was 8.4...so the pills weren't doing the job, and I have to start an Insulin regimen...I have to start with 10 units a night and increase it 3 to 5 units every Friday until my morning fasting tests average 130 or below.


See, I have this little problem with needles, I don't merely dislike them, they are one of the two major phobias I have (the other is heights).
Yes, I know Insulin needles are ultra fine, and don't really cause any real discomfort, much less real pain, but the reason they call them phobias is because they are totally unreasonable reaction(s) to a certain stimuli.

Well, I self administered my first injection at 2300 hrs. Only took me three minutes to build up the nerve to plunge the needle in my thigh.... Totally NO real pain whatsoever...but the resulting nervous reaction lasted over twenty minutes...shaking like an Aspen tree in an Oklahoma prairie wind; sweating and gasping like a marathoner just off a major race.
Yep, this regimen is gonna be real fun all right. I can only hope repetition will cause the overreactions to diminish with familiarity over time.

It's highly embarrassing to have to admit to such a piddly fear with all the REAL terror and pain going on in every day the world,but it's very real to me. I will overcome this mini-dragon that has entered my life. I really have no choice, after all. Sounds melodramatic, but it really is a matter of life and death.

Maybe I'll tackle that fear of high places while I'm at it...taking an injection while balancing on a tall pole, that would make the injection seem minor to the danger of going "splat"!

My next appoint is scheduled on , you guessed it, Friday, March 13..Doc has a real sense of humor..I just hope that it won't be more unlucky news on that day.

H.R.45 -- Death Knell of Liberty

Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009, otherwise known as HR45 is wending it's insidious way through the House.....I sincerely hope that it never gets out of committee, but the mere fact that a GFW is bold enough to even suggest such an act shows just how far down the path to Fascism we have trodden.

Any Congress-critter "bold" stupid enough to even THINK of such a bill even ten years ago would have, rightly, been run out of town on a rail with a thick coat of tarry feathers to keep him warm.

Why I am I so incensed? Read some of the provisions of the bill, if YOU are not incensed at the proposed denials of a basic right recognized in our Constitution, I question your patriotism, if not your sanity.

Mr. Rush (D -IL) is proposing a vast new bureaucracy that will have control over your basic right of self protection, the very bedrock of our Republic. He is of the opinion that the Government has the right to restrict weapons to those few it deems "safe" and control even those people to such an extent that their ownership becomes a mere caricature of ownership.

The only question before us now is: are We the People made of the same stuff as our Founding Fathers ? They threw over a tyranical government for much less reason. Have We become too complacent and/or cowardly to stand up for the basic rights They fought,sweated,bled, and died to let us freely exercise?

Read your history people. I suggest you concentrate on Germany circa 1934 to 1938. Don't make the mistake to believe "it can't happen here". It IS happening here, at the least, the beginnings are happening NOW; we have time to change it before it's too late, but not much time, and it will take courage and a steely resolve to fight to stop it.

'Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Common Sense,
who has been with us for many years.
No one knows for sure how old he was,since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.
He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable lessons as: Knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; Life isn't always fair; and maybe it was my fault.

Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend
more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned but
overbearing regulations were set in place.

Reports of a 6-year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teens suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student, only worsened his condition.

Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job
that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get parental
consent to administer sun lotion or an Aspirin to a student; but
could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to
have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the churches became businesses;and
criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a
burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue you for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed
to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in
her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge settlement..

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his
wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is
survived by his 4 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, I Want It Now, Someone Else
Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.

Too few people today knew him, and we are are much the lesser for that.

Not many attended his funeral because so few realized he was gone. If you
still remember him, pass this on. If not, join the majority and do nothing.'

Subject: New Willy

A man wakes up in the hospital, bandaged from head to foot.

The doctor comes in and says, 'Ah, I see you've regained consciousness.
Now, you probably won't remember, but you were in a pile-up on the freeway.
You're going to be okay, you'll walk again and everything, but..... something happened....

I'm trying to break this gently, but the fact is, your willy was chopped off in the wreck and we were unable to find it.'

The man groans, but the doctor goes on, 'You've got $9,000 in insurance compensation coming and we have the technology now to build you a new willy that will work as well as your old one did -better in fact! But the thing is, it doesn't come cheap. It's $1,000 an inch.'

The man perks up at this. 'So,' the doctor says, 'it's for you to decide how many inches you want. But it's something you'd better discuss with your wife. I mean, if you had a five inch one before, and you decide to go for a nine incher, she might be a bit put out. But if you had a nine inch one before, and you decide only to invest in a five incher this time, she might be disappointed. So it's important that she plays a role in helping you make the decision.

'The man agrees to talk with his wife.

The doctor comes back the next day.
So,' says the doctor, 'have you spoken with your wife?'

'I have,' says the man. 'And has she helped you in making the decision?'

'Yes, she has,' says the man.

'And what is it?' asks the doctor.

Democratic Arithmetic

For the last eight years we have been treated to a constant barrage of Bush-bashing. I'm glad that that is finally over, and I don't wish to respond to the Opposition in the same way....BUT, when a member of the Opposition is so blatantly stupid in public, I do feel it's incumbent on those of us who have not drunk the DemoCrapic Kool-Aid to point that stupidity out.

The latest data (July 2008) indicates the entire population of the United States is just approaching 304 million. Those in the workforce represent less than half that number.... I know I was edumacated indoctrinated in a Publik Skool, but even I can see that Ms. Pelosi's statement has a little mathematical problem attached to it....500,000 workers a month Ms Pelosi?!? out of a workforce of approximately 140,000,000? If true, that means we would have an unemployment rate of over 20 percent in just four months...the worst year of the Great Depression we had an unemployment rate of just under 20%....I know we're have some economic troubles, but..

I just don't believe that we are headed that far that fast, and if we are, I have a question. Read below the fold if you are curious what the question is (rant alert), if not, just consider Ms. Pelosi's public statements and consider if you feel comfortable with her being third in the line of succession for the Presidency...

In our form of government, Congress is ultimately responsible for the policies that affect our economy for good or ill; for the economy to experience such a drastic downturn in such a short period of time it is obvious that one or more of those policies currently in place are, to put it mildly, a disaster.

WHICH party has been the majority in the last two year economic cycle? Yes Bush was the leader, and he does bear a responsibility, but NO President can institute any policy without the consent of Congress...President Bush warned of economic trouble coming in the housing market over two years ago, but was decried as a "fear monger" and worse, a racist, by the Democratic Majority and was unable to institute any policy that would have for-stalled the crisis by that Majority.

Now those chickens have come home to roost and those that are at the root of the problem are proposing to mortgage our grand-children's economic future for their own short term political gain.

They are depending on the fact that most of the Electorate is too stupid to know that they are being manipulated and lied to...and judging from the choices made in the last election, they are at least 52% correct.

Just for Grins, A Rant




Yeah, I know, it's a racist joke, but folks, humor works because at the base of the supposition there is some kernel of truth. Mr. Obama's proposals to date to try to repair our present economic slump have all been based on class envy and populist pandering to the economically disadvantaged (Hey Barry, you WON the election, there is no need to keep campaigning!).

These so called "bailouts" and "economic stimulus" packages are nothing more than pork payback to keep the sponsors fat and happy, at the expense of our country and our grandchildren's' economic health. In summation, "politics as usual". These are difficult times and such shortsightedness will result in ever increasing hardship and a severe lowering of the standard of living for every citizen now existing and even worse conditions for those as yet unborn.

It is our fault. We have installed a socialist in the highest office of the land and shouldn't be surprised that he wants to try the same old dis-proven socialist economic programs that have proven to be disastrous time after time in the past (see Russia, China, Cuba, etc,etc,etc).

There IS a way out of the morass we find ourselves in. It requires that we think outside of the box that has shaped our thinking about government financing since another socialistic President used WWI as a way to institute personal income taxes. We need to return to our roots. The FAIR TAX is the best solution, IMHO.

People forget that for the first half of our countries existence, the people at large DID NOT PAY TAXES ON THEIR INCOME. The federal budget at that time was equal to or smaller than some state budgets today....
It's unrealistic to dream that we will ever return to that small of a Federal budget, but we CAN and SHOULD reduce the present budget to a point where we no longer have trillion dollar deficits and require monetary dependence on foreign countries to service that debt. That's an open "dirty little secret" folks. Currently, China has control of most of our government debt...the pandering politicians in Congress have mortgaged our economic freedom to, arguably, our worst enemy...and the average person on the street doesn't realize that fact, or know the implications of that fact, due to the lowering of educational standards over the last thirty years.

Mr. Obama is the first culmination of a long-sighted Socialist agenda that has been festering in the American background since the 1930s. The Socialists have been patient and cautious to never reveal their true agenda over that period of time, and they have been highly successful; so successful that anyone that tries to raise an alarm is viewed by the masses as a conspiracy nut-job.

The Socialists are aware that their true agenda is unpalatable to the average free thinking American, so they use the principle of incremental application. First they gradually inculcate themselves into the academic structure. By becoming the teachers of the next generation, they install their values onto the next generation of leaders and their followers. They lower the standards in the interests of "fairness" so as to not damage the fragile egos of those that are unable or unwilling to exert the effort it takes to become truly educated; indeed, they pander to those egos, coddling them, raising them unwarrantedly, and maintaining them in a fragile state, as that type of ego is much easier to exert control over.
They tell little Johnny that "it's all right he didn't get the correct answer to that arithmetic problem, the important thing is he TRIED to solve it". They tell little Suzie that she shouldn't "settle" for being a good mother/homemaker/wife; she deserves to be able to "do it all" without questioning what sacrifices she must make in some other area of her life.
I'm NOT saying that she can't be anything she wants to be {except a father, and science is probably working on that too..},but she has to realize that there are choices that have to be made in that decision, and that being a mother and homemaker is THE ultimate career there can be. The decline of society started when society at large lost sight of that fact.

When women starting abdicating motherhood to the State, the Socialists made their greatest gain in the furtherance of their agenda.

Just what is the Socialist agenda anyway? It's difficult to fight against an enemy whose goals are unknown to you. Stripped of all it's politics and covers, Socialism is merely the exertion of control. Control by the socialist over everyone else around him. Every Socialist believes in his very heart that HE will be that ultimate controller. That is the reason that Michael Savage is correct when he states that "Liberalism(Socialism) is a mental illness"; every adherent believes that he is the ultimate arbitrator over others in his own mind, regardless of the openly observable fact that he is not (Savage is a nut-job, but, as they say, even a broken clock is correct at least twice a day).

I know I put a lot of different ideas in a not-so-coherent package in the diatribe above. Sometimes trying to express myself is frustrating; like the manic phase of a manic/depressive it can get confusing because there is so much to say and no control to put it into a coherent form....I need to get an editor... but I hope I did sow some small seeds in some one's mind.

Time to get off the soapbox, I need to clean a few items and load some magazines, I always find that calms a racing mind.

Ice Cream & The Election

Excellent analogy!

From a teacher in the Nashville area:

Who worries about "the cow" when it is all about the "Ice Cream?

The most eye-opening civics lesson I ever had was while teaching third grade this year.

The presidential election was heating up and some of the children showed an interest.

I decided we would have an election for a class president.

We would choose our nominees. They would make a campaign speech and the class would vote.

To simplify the process, candidates were nominated by other class members.

We discussed what kinds of characteristics these students should have.

We got many nominations and from those, Jamie and Olivia were picked to run for the top spot.

The class had done a great job in their selections.

Both candidates were good kids. I thought Jamie might have an advantage because he got lots of parental support. I had never seen Olivia's mother.

The day arrived when they were to make their speeches Jamie went first.

He had specific ideas about how to make our class a better place. He ended by promising to do his very best.

Everyone applauded. He sat down and Olivia came to the podium. Her speech was concise.

She said, "If you will vote for me, I will give you ice cream." She sat down.

The class went wild. "Yes! Yes! We want ice cream." She surely could say more. She did not have to.

A discussion followed. How did she plan to pay for the ice cream? She wasn't sure.

Would her parents buy it or would the class pay for it? She didn't know.

The class really didn't care. All they were thinking about was ice cream.

Jamie was forgotten.

Olivia won by a landslide.

Every time Barack Obama opened his mouth he offered ice cream and fifty-two percent of the people reacted like nine year olds. They want ice cream.

The other forty-eight percent of us know we're going to have to feed the cow and clean up the mess.

Just for Grins

Veteran Pillsbury spokesman Pop N. Fresh died yesterday of a severe yeast infection. He was 71.

Known to friends as Brown-n-Serve, Fresh was an avid gardener and tennis player. Fresh was buried in one of the largest funeral ceremonies in recent years. Dozens of celebrities turned out including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Aunt Jemima, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Skippy. The graveside was piled high with flours as longtime friend Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, describing Fresh as a man who "never knew how much he was kneaded."

Fresh rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with many turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes -- conned by those who buttered him up.

Still, even as a crusty old man, he was a roll model for millions. Fresh is survived by his second wife. They have two children and another bun in the oven. The funeral was held at 350 for about 20 minutes.

I do know that it's being played in Tampa this year, so at least there won't be any chance of snow interfering with the plays (assuming Al Bore doesn't attend the game; snow seems to follow him everywhere he goes..talk about a 'cool' character!)

This year TLOML will be able to enjoy the game on our new 42" flatscreen TV; just maybe she'll finally ackowledge that bigger IS better in TV 's.
I don't mind that she takes control of the remote this one day of the year, even though it goes against all my male instincts...and watching the small screen in the bedroom makes me appreciate the flat screen all the more.

I think I'll retire to the bedroom and watch a DVD...or shovel the snow from the walkway before the postman slips on my walk and sues me.

Hold on, I just learned Teh One is rooting for the Steelers; GO Cardinals!

Hmmmm...just maybe....


Captainsql has a tongue in cheek proposal to smooth over the current polarization between the Left and those of us who are correct.

I must say that his last request is highly agreeable to me...., hell, I would wish it to occur regardless of all the rest of the proposal. I'm sure Mssr. Car-ter would be much more comfortable among his own kind, and it seems that Hamas or France both need some new blood in the upper echelons of power...
