Its Red Neck remodeling season

While today marks the "Official" start of the 2012 storm season, the first storms arrived last night. I was outside talking with friends when One of my room mates came out to tell me there was something going off in my room. It was the weather radio. Shocker! They said a tornado watch. In February? I can believe it, we've had them in every month including December and January, so while not common, they aint as rare as a fiscally responsible democrat.
There were at least two touch downs in Kansas, one near Hutchison, and one that hit Harveyville. No fatalities, thank GOD, but several serious injuries.
I won't be among the first responders on this one, I injured my knee ten days ago, and will require surgery on it.
So for the next eight months, people are going to stopping by asking, Did a tornado go through, or are you having a yard sale? Sigh.

What a race

The Non Athletic Sport Centered Arround Rednecks is off and running. Sort of. After the first posponement in Daytona history, the race went wild. I have not watched a NASCAR event in several years, so this one was a great one to get back into it. A Monday race with a Tuesday finish.
Montoya is lucky to be alive after his fireball wreck that shut the race down for two hours. That he walked away basicly unhurt speaks volumes about all the safety tech that goes into every one of those races.
Jr extended his winless streak to 130 races. I thought this was going to be his race. He came up a close second.
So the season is under way for NASCAR fans. February has been a tough month for those who didn't tyvo some football games. rednecks every where breathe a sigh of relief.

Campaign bumper sticker 1

Pakistan has a problem

It seems the country is over run by filthy animals. The stench is horrible. Not a good thing. Oh, and they have a wild hog infestation as well.
What can I say? To me, this is funny as hell.

An apology done right.

h/t John from comments at Don Surbers place.


The left just got a reality check. I know there are a lot of conservatives who are atheists, but it seems to me the vast majority of people who do not believe in any GOD are liberals. part of the liberal mantra is evolution, mother earth, and all that jazz. The poster child of liberalism is often Michael Newdow, the guys who objected to his daughter saying under GOD in the pledge of Allegiance, even though she had accepted Christ and believed in GOD. The whole mishmash of identity politics has many of them embracing islam, not as a religion, but as an ally opposed to Christian values. I really don't care that they don't believe, they are not going to get dragged, kicking and screaming into heaven.
The Constitution is supposed to guarantee freedom of religion, not freedom from religion. To me, that means you can worship how you please where you please when you please as long as you do not cause physical harm or discomfort to other individuals. If you want to sacrifice an animal, fine with me. If you want to sacrifice a human, thats another matter. If the person is agreeable to being cut up and burned on an alter, thats another thing. Some Christians who prostelize really push the limit. They can make you feel really uncomfortable. In the end though, they are not going to kill you for not believing.
As I go about my business I tend to ignore the anti religious symbols such as the fish with feet, or the one made like a flying saucer. I wish the atheists could do the same and ignore religious symbols like crosses and the fish as well. The militant ones don't want to. Maybe they are butt hurt from having Jehovahs witnesses, Mormons, and Baptist missionaries ring their door bell at all hours.
Well, back on Halloween, an atheist group held a parade. Part of their festival was a zombie pope. Catholics might object, I don't, and wouldn't even if I were Catholic. As far as I know, no one objected, at least not like some one did about another of their characters, a zombie Muhammad.
I mock islam all the time, to me, this is funny as heck. What happened to the character, Ernest Perce is decidedly not funny. Seems there was a muslim in the crowd. This scumbag was an immigrant, and he got offended. he Attacked Mr Perce, it was caught on video, and the whole thing went to court.
This is where it goes from bad to worse. The judge was also a muslim. in the end, he came close to sharia law. He dismissed the charges and told Mr Perce he is lucky he didn't get killed for his mockery.
This is a serious WTF moment. I know there are a lot of conservative atheists. I sincerely hope they see the light over this. The identity politics of the left is a danger for America. Embracing islam is a perilous endeavor, something no sane person should do. The enemy of your enemy can be your enemy too, and Atheists who think that tolerating islam is a good thing are in for a shock. They will be eaten as well, just like the Jews who collaborated in the ghetto's of WW2.
For years Christians and atheists have lived here in America side by side. I don't recollect ever hearing about some Christians burning down an atheists house, or any thing like that. Sure, we can be irritating as gnats when we evangelize, sorry if we offend you, its not meant to offend.
In the last few decades the atheists have taken a few shots back. there is piss jesus, and removing crosses and ten commandments monuments from various places. Court battles to no end that have turned the meaning of the 1st amendment on its side.
A tangent here for a moment, Israel has a live and let live attitude regarding homosexuality. It is the only place in the middle east where open display of homosexual affection is allowed. Never mind that islamists in many regions molest little boys, sex between two adult men is punishable by death. Yet the GLBT community is calling for a boycott of Israel over supposed human rights violations against palistidiots. Seriously, are you nuts? The homosexuals should be on the side of Israel. Islamists won't care that you aided their cause by protesting against Israel, you are not muslim, you are gay, you are their enemy, and after they are done using you they will slaughter you.
Its that kind of mentality that helps islamists. Please atheists, think about it. Sure, you don't like a lot of things conservatives stand for, but we are not out to destroy you.
As for this idiot judge, he needs to be removed from the bench and stripped of citizenship, then sent to GITMO, or maybe Somalia. Any one who thinks Islam is compatable with anything needs to think again.

How stupid can they get?

Several years back a guy moved into my neighborhood. He had a high paying job, and purchased the best house he could afford. Not long after he got settled in, he took stock of his situation. His job paid well, and he had been there a good many years, but he didn't like it. It was not what he dreamed of being. He had always wanted to be a writer, and after assessing his liabilities and assets, decided he could live off his savings and try his hand at being an author.
His ARM was low, utility bills manageable, taxes were cheap, fuel wasn't so expensive. his investments were doing well. He rolled his retirement into it and set out to become the next Greatest writer the world had ever seen. Like Chevy Chase in Funny farm, he sucked at it, but it really didn't matter, he could live on his retirement and a part time job.
Well, economic hard times hit. The bank adjusted his mortgage. As the economy worsened, government raised taxes to compensate for other lost revenues. Fuel prices went up, food prices rose as well.
At first he compensated by charging things on credit cards, surely the economic down turn would be short lived. Soon he was nibbling at his savings. The interest wasn't paying near what he needed. Those nibbles soon turned into bites, and then into gouges. Now his savings are gone, his mortgage has ballooned due to unpaid principal, and Insurance rates have gone up as well. He wants to borrow a few grand from me, says it would be in my best interest since a foreclosure in the neighborhood would hurt my property values.
No, this isn't real, its a comparison of what is happening across the world as nations like Greece, and States like California beg others to bail them out from their own stupidity. Must we all suffer because they were fools? Let them crash, let them be divided up and auctioned off. Bad things happen to stupid people governments. let them happen. Charity is helping some one who has bad luck, misfortune, or dynamic inopportunity, its not salvaging a suicide attempt in progress by joining the jumper on the way down. They are not on the ledge anymore, they done jumped off. Blow em a kiss, and watch the splatter.
Aesop's fables are full of stories about foolish behavior. The Bible is full of parables that are very good advice. Always remember, ya can't fix stupid.

Atlantic wire touts failure.

John Hudson at the Atlantic Wire has a screed up claiming that the 787 billion porkulus failed because it was too small. He tells how some think a bigger 1.8 trillion package proposed by Christina Romer was the ticket.
While John does not come right out and say we should have done it, the fact he even reports on it indicated he is as crazy as the rest of em.
We would have fared far better if we had done nothing. What they did is the economic equivelent of blood letting in the 1700, the proceedure that killed George Washington.
Governments the world over need to get over bailout mantality. Just because you can rob a richman and give the money to a fool does not mean you are helping the fool. Let fools fail. Let Greece, Portugal, Illinois and California collapse into their respective dung heaps. Let them be a monument to stupidity all o ntheir own.

Burn a Koran day In Afghanistan

Seems the religion of pedophilia are all up in arms over a bunch of satanic verses getting thrown out with the other trash. Afghan workers found korans in a burn pile and retrieved the vile garbage. EPA was not notified of the contamination.
according to American Pravda, "There is perhaps no action that enrages Afghans more than foreigners' mistreating the Koran. It taps into widespread doubt of whether Americans respect Islam as well as deep frustration that, more than 10 years after the Taliban were overthrown, violence remains widespread. Korans are supposed to be buried or released into a flowing river if they need to be disposed."
Buried or released into a flowing river. So if I take a healthy dump on it, that's OK, and if I piss on it, that should be just fine with the satanists.Yet they got upset when lies surfaced that korans in GITMO were released into flowing streams by being flushed down toilets.
The bottom line is they will use anything as a reason to spark a protest. We should quit appeasing them and either bomb the country flat, or leave and let them kill themselves off. On the way out, we should swing through Iran and collect their atomic material. Keep the whole region in the dark ages where they belong.

Presidents Day

I was eating lunch today with my 10 year old grandson when his mom asked him "What is tomorrow?"
He said "It's President's Day"
She asked "What does that mean?"
.... I was waiting for something profound...
He said "President's Day is when Obama steps out of the White House and if he sees his shadow, we have 2 more years of unemployment."

I almost snorted my coke.

Obama has Christian values?

Santorum isn't the only one to question Barry's faith. Every sane American should. I'm not going to claim that people of other faiths should not run for president. To me, if you claim to be a Christian, you should act at least a little, like a Christian. Leaders who wear their faith on their sleeve give Christianity a bad name because we all fail to live up to the standard.
Obama, in an interview during the 2008 election cycle stated he was muslim. Considering he was educated in a muslim school, its easy to believe. I know several muslims who attend Christian churches. they will state on questioning though that they do not believe in Jesus and are there either to appease a friend or spouse.
Trinity church was a black liberation theology church. It was anything but Christian. Obama sat in the pew there for years as Wright spewed his hate and garbage to the parishioners. Michelle, appears to fit right in with his ilk. Barry looks and acts IMHO like a pew warmer, some one who is there to keep the missus happy, and to keep up appearances.
I personally cannot view anyone who supports abortion as Christian. Jesus said better a millstone be tied around your neck and you be cast into the depths of the sea then to harm a child. Children are innocent lives. Murderers and rapists are not. It really gets me that so many people who support abortion also oppose the death penalty. The Catholic Church opposes both which I consider strange given that the Bible prescribes death as the punishment for many crimes from murder, to rape, to sex with an animal.
I was once a democrat. My biggest political influence was an Aunt who is strong in Minnesota DFL politics. She is strongly prolife, a position I cannot reconcile. her pro life stance rubbed off on me big time. In the end, I decided I had to choose between life and democrats. Life won, I'm independent because republicans some times cave to the dems on abortion issues.

scary murder rate

While reading about the prison fire in Honduras, I was struck by mention that Honduras has the highest murder rate in the world. My first thought was, how can they beat Mexico?
Well, I did a little research, and the numbers I found were United States, 4.8 murders per 100,000 population. Mexico has 18, and Honduras has a whopping 86. New Orleans, the murder capital of the nation has only 49.1 murders per 100k.
I have to wonder, does the Mexico murder rate reflect all the drug gang violence in Northern Mexico? It would seem to me that as bad as it has been reported, that their rate would be a lot higher. I could be wrong.
Honduras has a lot of problems, They are a bottle neck for drugs flooding from South America into the United States. It is a poor country, not much industry. Any wonder they are flocking north. That flood will bring the violence with them. We need our border fence. Mexico is getting worse, everything south sucks too, El Salvador 71, Belize 42, Guatemala 39, Colombia 33, Panama 20.
While they are at it, add a mine field on the border as well.

My its hard to raise a daughter

Little Willie mean as hell
Pushed his sister down a well
Mother said, while drawing water,
"My its hard to raise a daughter"

By now I'm sure you have heard of Tommy Jordan, from Stanly County NC, The man who wasted eight rounds of 45 ACP on his daughters lap top. I say wasted because he could have done the same with a .22 rim fire. Sure it wouldn't have created those nifty holes... OK, I would have used the 45 as well.
Today good parents must combat not only the urges of their children, but the media and no good do gooders to raise a child right. No one wants parents to be successful. Parents get only a few hours of influence on their children every day. Most of their time is spent with friends and at school. No wonder they are a mess. Most of what kids get today is counter culture. If you are attempting to raise your kids to be Christians or conservative, you are fighting a tough battle. Most of what comes out of the schools is decidedly anti Christian, liberal progressive, hell its communist bull shit.
The Police in Stanley County have fielded calls demanding that Tom be investigated. He has been hounded by the press as well. All he want is for his kid to respect authority, whether that be her parents, teachers, police, or whom ever. It all starts with respecting the parents. Teachers should respect the parents as well. its parents who pay their wages, and the children ultimately belong to the parents not to the teachers, the school, the state or any one else.
Tom, I know you aint happy. Somewhere some one printed that you wished you hadn't had the cigarette, had cleaned your boots, and worn a better hat, but to be honest you did it right, you were you, not some made up person. Smart folks respect you. The rest probably don't even respect themselves.

Little Willie mean as hell
Pushed his sister down a well.
She's still there, the water kilt her
Now when we drink we use a filter.

Poor parenting can be the death of a child. Look at all the ones who fall through the cracks in inner city hell holes, whether they be LA, Chicago, or Kansas City. When a parent isn't willing to be the parent, the child loses. We need more Tommy Jordans. Our kids especially need them.

Iran is at it again

Or is that still? It seems an Iranian would be terrorist succeeded in maiming himself in a blast in Thailand. too bad he didn't blow himself to smithereens, but then the Thai police wouldn't be able to interrogate him for more information.
No seventy two ugly bitches for you punk.
George W Bush labeled Iran, Iraq and North Korea as "The Axis of Evil". One down, two to go, but it looks like the one we put down may be on its way back. Frankly, Pakistan should be added to the list. So should Syria, Libya, and possibly Egypt. All of them would make good bombing ranges. I'd say bomb them back to the stone ages, except we can do that with a fire cracker. A dud one at that. The only good thing about them is their oil.
No blood for oil was the cry of our retarded lefties. Too bad it wasn't blood for oil, we could use some cheap gas about now. We certainly gave enough good blood and not much to show for it.
Iran needs a wake up call. ObamAA+ aint gonna do whats needed. Whether coward or closet muslim, it does not matter. The world is more dangerous because he has failed immensely. he does not understand the threat, does not understand the mission, or worse yet is in collusion with them.
Here's to hoping Israel gets the mission accomplished banner out and makes Iran a smoldering dung heap.

The Bobcat

Why did Beretta name their .22 a Bobcat, and their .32 a Tomcat?

This is the Bobcat. It is intended as an easily concealable pistol. Sure a .22 aint much compared to a 357 or 44 mag, but late night borrowers usually come equipped with a knife to sharpen their pencils, not guns. Several companies offer holsters which create the appearance of a wallet in the back pocket, and stay put when you draw this to discourage the kind of folks who want lending on their terms, zero interest, and forever to pay it back with no signature or background check. The kind of loans that were made by the government to less qualified buyers, the kind of thugs we still have to deal with.
One down side I see is that the tip up lever for the barrel is too handy. if some one is close, they can grab it, the barrel tips, and you are as much as unarmed. Simple solution, if they are that close, shoot with out hesitation. The same sort of problem exists with their 92.
The other problem is that the mag release is on the back of the grip, and not very handy if you do not play with it a lot.
Other then that, it shoots well, has a nice feel, and is a compact carry piece when needed. In fact, it is the only gun I have right now that one could call concealable unless you are built like me and can hide a 44 mag under your arm.

I'm a member

Racist? Seriously?

Pete Hoekstra ran an ad in during the Super Bowl which featured a woman of Asian decent riding a bike and thanking Debbie Wasteitnow for all the crazy spending that has made the Chinese economy stronger in the last few years. remember folks we are borrowing the money from China to fund the crazy spending that Washington is doing.
Retarded Asian Man(iac) is up in arms over the ad. From my perspective, the ad attempts to accurately portray how a Chinese woman would actually sound if she were speaking English as a second language, and from my experience with Asian born people gained via the military, She does a very good job. The Asian moron though has set out to destroy her over this. he has tracked down her identity and is lobbing bombs over the internet at her. Never mind the accuracy of her message. The global warming hoax has cost the USA and Europe billions as factories and jobs have been shifted to China and India. More billions are being funneled into the Asian market via carbon offsets. but crazy Asian guy would rather attack it as racist then address the real message. Why? Because he can't. M4GW and a host of others have done a good job of showing just how this hoax has hurt the US. Asian idiot would rather attack Lisa Chan personally then to acknowledge that her message was spot on.
Sadly, Pete is fighting an uphill battle. Cars from Detroit are now referred to by the manufacturer as imports because it is so out of mainstream America. Detroit also is flooded with foreigners who are refusing to assimilate and become Americans preferring to import their brand of hate, islam to the USA and force it down the throats of  the people of Michigan.
Don't get me wrong, I don't agree with racism if the stereo type is not correct. muslims want to kill us, its right there in their book. Some of the stuff he points out is spot on. No woman should be treated like that.
My Asian stereo type is this, They are shorter then average Americans. Have some of the best food on planet earth. yes, I eat Chinese Thai, Japanese, etc several times a week. Typical Asian students study harder then their American counterparts. Oh, and their women are beautiful.
angry Asian needs to understand, We don't fear China out of racism, but because they are the last remaining communist power in the world. We did not go to Korea and Vietnam to oppress those people but to keep them free from communism. That is how South Korea is able to be an economic power even though they are a very small nation, and North Korea is still a black out, both politically, and when viewed from a satellite. We as a free people oppose communism, and any thing that props up a totalitarian regime is a bad thing. We do not wish poverty or calamity on Asian people, we only wish for them freedom to choose how they live. We oppose forcing women to be sterilized, and to have abortions, a practice that has devastated the Chinese family system as men now out number women by a large margin that will have many Asian men unable to find a bride. It is those family edicts by the totalitarian regime that has forced many young girls, babies, to be abandoned into orphanages. The behavior of the Chinese government has caused many adoptions by American families. Girls who are not adopted end up as little more then prostitutes in China. That is a crime in itself.
Most conservative Americans have no bias against people from China. If you want to walk around with a chip on your shoulder and be offended, that's your privilege, but it not racism.

McDonalds should have kept the ad

McDonald's has pulled an ad in the Kansas City area that compared McNuggets to petting a stray pit bull.
If some one would be so kind as to give me a link to the number of people who have been mauled or died from a McNugget attack, I would be grateful. I have seen too many bad pit bulls to buy into the lie about them being nice dogs. 34 fatal attacks in 2010 aint a good statistic either.
You see, there is this thing called genetics. It is the reason that Pointers make good bird dogs, Blood Hounds make good trackers, and pit bulls maul people. Pits are a high energy dog. Every apartment I own where some one moved in a pit sustained damage because the dogs are high strung. From damaged doors to torn up carpets, they have destroyed property, and most of the owners have skipped out of paying for it. That keeps them on my forbidden list. I have personally been attacked twice. Neither attack resulted in serious injury, but had I been a smaller person, that would not be the case. I also had an instance where a tenant slipped in a pit, and after being told to get rid of the dog, it attacked a neighbors dog on the street. When I found out, I chewed the neighbor for not calling the cops. That dog had previously attacked a repairman at another location. He was on a ladder, and had he been a step lower the mutt would have bitten into his leg rather then his boot.
Pitts are a dangerous breed. Its genetics. That is why in 2008 65% of fatal dog attacks were by pits. I have no doubt that pit owners will come by to defend their dogs. What can i say? They are stupid, misguided, and deserve what they get when one day their dog causes injury to some one. If you want to keep one, fine with me. Don't complain when you get sued.
As for McDonalds, I will accept reports of people choking on mcnasties, getting high blood pressure from them, hell, I'll even accept some one losing a finger because they were stupid enough to offer one to a pit.

Muslim man remote

The perfect tool for the muslim man who has advanced beyond the 4th century at least technologically. Lets face it, the ones who advanced religiously are no longer mooslimes.

Current events test

From TomW in comments at Test your knowledge here. Then see how bad others did. Me? 13 for 13. Not a single one right. /sarc.

Government selling guns to crooks?

Well, it now appears fast and furryassed aint the only government program putting guns in the hands of criminals. ATF ran a "sting" in Wichita called Bandit Trading. It was a pawn shop caper, and was set up to track criminals who were purchasing or selling guns in Kansas. The ploy netted 51 arrests since it began operation, and at least one hooked crook is screaming racial about it.
Is it racist that blacks comprise a majority of murderers while comprising less then 1/5th of the US population? I blogged the other day about how Missouri has the highest murder rate among blacks in the nation. Blacks commit  more crimes, more murders, more robberies, more drugs more violence. Its not racist, it not because of the color of their skin nor the genetic of their cells, its the culture created by government handouts which induce women to have multiple babies by diffrent fathers who have no involvement in the rearing of their children. Liberals in the 60's set into motion a diabolical plan to destroy the black family unit which was at that time the strongest in the nation.
Not only did they succeed, but the blacks still cling to them like a battered woman to her abuser.
As for this being racist, I don't buy it for a minute.

Skipped the half time show

After reading this I almost skipped the entire bullshit festival. I can understand the NFL wanting to prevent people from stealing their intellectual property, but when you broadcast it over the airwaves to any one who has a TV, you pretty much give up that argument. My heartburn though is that these raids were conducted by Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and by Homeland Security. Just exactly does patent or intellectual property encroachment have to do with these organizations? Furthermore, these would be civil actions not criminal, so law enforcement should stay the living hell away from it. If we had one honest judge in the feral err federal system, who ever was behind it would be out of a job by Monday. Holder cough, ObamAA+ cough.
As for the half time shit, I will pass on Mad Donna every day of the week. That disgusting bitch should stay in Europe.


Last Thursday Night Around Midnight, A Woman From Houston , Texas Was Arrested, Jailed, And Charged With Manslaughter For Shooting A Man 6 Times In The Back As He Was Running Away With Her Purse. ~

The Following Morning, The Woman Was Called In Front Of the arraignment Judge, Sworn In, And asked to explain her actions. The woman replied, "I was standing at the corner bus stop for about 15 minutes, waiting for the bus to take me home after work. I am a waitress at a local cafe. I was there alone, so I had my right hand on my pistol, that was in my purse, that was hung over my left shoulder.

All of a sudden I was being spun around hard to my left. As I caught my balance, I saw A man running away from me with my purse. I looked down at my right hand and I saw that my fingers were wrapped tightly around my pistol. The next thing I remember is saying out loud, "No Way Punk! You're not stealing my pay check and tips." I raised my right hand, pointed my pistol at the man running away from me with my purse, and squeezed the trigger of my pistol 6 times! ~

When asked by the arraignment judge, "Why did you shoot the man 6 times? ~

The woman replied under oath, "Because, When I pulled the trigger the 7th time, It only went click."

The woman was acquitted of all charges. She was back at work at the cafe the next day!

Now that's Gun Control..... Texas Style......AMEN

Note to politicians, keep your hands off Texas womens purses help yourselves to their tips and paycheck.


I've seen more then a few high wire acts in my time. This one is awesome.

Komen caved

Its a sad day. The Susan Komen foundation decided to cave to leftard pressure and will again support an organization devoted to the slaughter of children. Planned Parenthood claims that only 3% of their services are devoted to abortion. according to their chart, they devote 35% to contraception, and if you read the fine print, you will find that includes morning after pills which are another version of abortion.
Komen is supposed to be about finding a cure for breast cancer. P-P does not do anything in that arena. The closest thing you will get is a referral to someone that does screening.
Planned Parenthood uses a lot of double speak in their web information.
• Percentage of Planned Parenthood health care clients

• age 20 and older: 80
• with incomes at or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level: 76
• who receive services to prevent unintended pregnancy: 76
• who receive abortion services: 11

• Percentage of all Planned Parenthood health services that are abortion services: 3

So is it 3% or 11%?
They also have this factoid;
• Estimated number of unintended pregnancies averted by Planned Parenthood contraceptive services each year: 584,000
My understanding is this is the number of emergency contraceptives given out, morning after pills, another form of abortion, just without a knife. So add 20% to their totals and make it 31% abortions. So if 31% of the combined 37% that is abortion and contraceptive services is ending a pregnancy by either surgical or chemical means, that makes them nothing more then an abortion mill in my book.
Komen was wrong to cave to the pressure. Conservatives were opening their pocket books for them as liberals were closing theirs. I hope when they see the number of cancellations, it gives them a clue.

Unions will have to survive on their merits

Indiana today became the 23rd state to pass a right to work law. While this does not spell doom for unions, it means the noose is tightening. Unions will be forced to live on theri merits, and when they offer no benefit as most now fail to do, they will die off. So the choice is become relevant or extinct. My hope is for extinct.
I worked for en employer for years where there was preasure to unionize. The company had several union plants, and they were all high cost low production dumps. One plant booted the union. The following year productivity increased so much that the employees got a near 10% profit sharing bonus. That never happened when the union had control as workers were prevented from exceeding production quotas.
Unions have a place. Saddly it is most often among thugs and despots as in the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics.
Good decision Indiana. Prepare for the fight in court and in the low brow of election recalls. The unions don't take assaults on their thug control with out a fight.

So the comparisons were real

From 2000 forward, idiots on the left have peppered us with cartoons and pictures depicting George W Bush to be part ape, or comparing him to one. Well, according to Yahoo's Who Knew, Bush and Obama are related, so I guess the chimpy name fits into his family after all. Poor guy.

When traveling, be prepared

If you were expecting something about how to smuggle a weapon or defensive gear onto a plane, sorry to disappoint you. Doing that is a felony, and advising how is also a crime. Besides, the biggest threat we face today when traveling is being groped by TSA thugs,not hijackers or terrorists. So here is what you need.
