Fred Thompson Blogburst

Rats.
I missed the Fred Thompson blogburst.
The point of the blogburst is to get money for our favorite CFR, anti-free speech candidate.
Better late then never, I guess.

Go donate to Fred here:


Now, don't let the fact that Fred's Site looks like Ron Paul's website confuse you. It's ok.
Really.
This is just to fool those stoopid Paulbots (that have all that money!) into donating to Fred.
SHHHHH!!!

These Thompson folks are so sneaky, it'll even show up as Ron Paul on your credit card!

That crafty Fred is one smart cookie. So go donate now. NOW!!

Culinary Alert

Slugging back a mouthful of warm wine out of last night's Pinot Grigio-filled coffee mug (instead of the expected coffee) with your eggs for breakfast at 9:00 AM is NOT recommend by the author.
Talk about a rude awakening!

And yes, I do drink wine sometimes (at night!) out of a coffee mug for utilitarian reasons:

Low center of gravity to prevent tippage (this problem seems more prevalent as more wine is ingested);

a handle to prevent warming from body-heat;

the discretion factor (heh - I'm low profile);

much lower fragility factor when knocked off of table (again, more common as more wine flows, for some odd reason);

and they're easier to clean and/or put in dishwasher.

I'm sure Julia Child is spinning in her grave.

Reason Number 6,128,446 To Carry a Firearm

How many reasons do the leftards need before it sinks in?

Escaped tiger kills one, injures two at San Francisco zoo

Even sadder, two-legged predators are a far more imminent threat, and caged much less often than tigers.

And guess who ended the tiger caper? You guessed it, people with guns.
Hopefully, the victim is a politician who voted to outlaw all firearms in San Fran.

Merry Christmas

As Wyatt says, remember the reason for the season: The birth of our Savior.

Peace be with you, and have a safe and wonderful Christmas, Hanuka and New Year, too!

God bless.

(And if you're into Kwanzaa, I just thought I'd let you know it's fake, sort of commie, and incompatible with Christianity, too. I'll pray for you. And still - Happy Holidays!)

Real Conversation...

The following conversation is real, it took place between jimmyb and the Missus.

How to tell you have a super-cool wife tip #44 -

Mrs. jimmyb: What are you going to buy for your Christmas present with your share of the Christmas club money?

jimmyb: Meh. I'll probably just pay some bills with it; I don't really need anything.

Mrs. jimmyb: Um, no, you're not. That's your Christmas present, and you're going to buy a gun or something with it.

jimmyb: Uh...ok. Heh.
You don't have to tell me something like that twice.
I guess I've been good this year!

I have a sneaking suspicion that Santa is going to get me something from the Smith and Wesson Performance Center.

Oh, yeah...

Birds of a Feather...

Not leaders. Rulers.

And we are to be ruled.

"You like to fire assault weapons? I have a place for you. It's not in the homes and streets of America. It's called the Army, and you can join any time!"

"There is no right to have access to the weapons of war in the streets of America. For those who want to wield those weapons, we have a place for them. It is the US military. And we welcome them."
John Kerry

"Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA. Ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the State."

That's A Lot of Crumpets

The Tea Party results were impressive:

Paul Raises $6 Million in 24-Hour Effort

I know those 10 mystery Paulite spammers are good, but where did they come up with 6 extra-large?

Not bad for an "unelectable", "fringe", "of no consequence", "lower tier", etc. type, eh?

And then eclectic libertarian/conservative Andrew Sullivan has an interesting article today.
An excerpt, with which I wholeheartedly agree
(it would be well worth your wile to go read the whole thing - Ron Paul For The Republican Nomination):

But the deeper reason to support Ron Paul is a simple one. The great forgotten principles of the current Republican party are freedom and toleration. Paul's federalism, his deep suspicion of Washington power, his resistance to government spending, debt and inflation, his ability to grasp that not all human problems are soluble, least of all by government: these are principles that made me a conservative in the first place. No one in the current field articulates them as clearly and understands them as deeply as Paul. He is a man of faith who nonetheless sees a clear line between religion and politics. More than all this, he has somehow ignited a new movement of those who love freedom and want to rescue it from the do-gooding bromides of the left and the Christianist meddling of the right. The Paulites' enthusiasm for liberty, their unapologetic defense of core conservative principles, their awareness that in the new millennium, these principles of small government, self-reliance, cultural pluralism, and a humble foreign policy are more necessary than ever - no lover of liberty can stand by and not join them.

He's the real thing in a world of fakes and frauds. And in a primary campaign where the very future of conservatism is at stake, that cannot be ignored. In fact, it demands support.

Dive on in, the water in the harbor is refreshing!
Send the good doctor some cash, and vote for him in you state's Republican primary!!

How About A Nice Cup of Skepticism WithThat, Algore?

Wow. Almost too much information refuting global cooling global warming anthropomorphic climate change.
Watch for this info on CBS tonight!!!


Skeptical
Scientists Urge World To ‘Have the Courage to Do Nothing' At UN Conference
December 11, 2007

BALI, Indonesia
-
An international team of scientists skeptical of man-made climate
fears promoted by the UN and former Vice President Al Gore, descended on Bali
this week to urge the world to "have the courage to do nothing" in response to
UN demands.

Do nothing? That would be a fine job for our Congress. Actually, I would prefer they do nothing all the time.

Lord Christopher Monckton, a
UK climate researcher, had a blunt message for UN climate conference
participants on Monday.

"Climate change is a non-problem.
The right answer to a non problem is to have the courage to do nothing,"
Monckton told participants.

"The UN conference is a
complete waste of our time and your money and we should no longer pay the
slightest attention to the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change,)"
Monckton added. (
LINK)

Dang! Tell us what you really think, Chris!

Monckton also noted that the
UN has not been overly welcoming to the group of skeptical scientists.

"UN organizers refused my
credentials and appeared desperate that I should not come to this conference.
They have also made several attempts to interfere with our public meetings,"
Monckton explained.

I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you!

"It is a circus here," agreed
Australian scientist Dr. David Evans. Evans is making scientific presentations
to delegates and journalists at the conference revealing the latest
peer-reviewed studies that refute the UN's climate claims.

There are definitely a lot of clowns in the UN and politics in general...

"This is the most lavish conference
I have ever been to, but I am only a scientist and I actually only go to the
science conferences," Evans said, noting the luxury of the tropical resort.
(Note: An analysis by Bloomberg News on December 6 found:
"Government officials and activists flying to Bali, Indonesia, for the United
Nations meeting on climate change will cause as much pollution as 20,000 cars in
a year."
- LINK)

Gosh. Largess? Easy to do with others money, generally taken with the unspoken (and spoken) threat of a gun barrel. Hypocrites you say? So do I.

Evans, a mathematician who
did carbon accounting for the Australian government, recently converted to a
skeptical scientist about man-made global warming after reviewing the new
scientific studies. (
LINK)

"We now have quite a lot of
evidence that carbon emissions definitely don't cause global warming. We have
the missing [human] signature [in the atmosphere], we have the IPCC models being
wrong and we have the lack of a temperature going up the last 5 years," Evans
said in an interview with the Inhofe EPW Press Blog. Evans authored a November
28 2007 paper "Carbon Emissions Don't Cause Global Warming." (
LINK)

Heresy!! Unbeliever!!! Leper - Unclean!!!

Evans touted a new
peer-reviewed study by a team of scientists appearing in the December 2007 issue
of the International Journal of Climatology of the Royal Meteorological Society
which found "Warming is naturally caused and shows no human influence."
(
LINK)

But, but... that would mean that the liberals and Marxists and socialists and hippies are wrong!! IMPOSSIBLE!!

"Most of the people here have
jobs that are very well paid and they depend on the idea that carbon emissions
cause global warming. They are not going to be very receptive to the idea that
well actually the science has gone off in a different direction," Evans
explained.

Show me the money!

[Inhofe EPW Press Blog
Note: Several other recent peer-reviewed studies have cast considerable doubt
about man-made global warming fears. For most recent sampling see: New
Peer-Reviewed Study finds 'Solar changes significantly alter climate' (11-3-07)
(
LINK) & "New Peer-Reviewed Study Halves the Global
Average Surface Temperature Trend 1980 - 2002" (
LINK) & New Study finds Medieval Warm Period '0.3C
Warmer than 20th Century' (
LINK) For a more comprehensive sampling of
peer-reviewed studies earlier in 2007 see "New Peer-Reviewed Scientific Studies
Chill Global Warming Fears"
LINK ]

Heh. That was some major linky-love for science.

‘IPCC is unsound'

UN IPCC reviewer and climate
researcher Dr. Vincent Gray of New Zealand, an expert reviewer on every single
draft of the IPCC reports since its inception going back to 1990, had a clear
message to UN participants.

"There is no evidence that
carbon dioxide increases are having any effect whatsoever on the climate," Gray,
who shares in the Nobel Prize awarded to the UN IPCC, explained. (
LINK)

Got that?
Dear Anointed Hand-Wringers/Might-Wielders: What part of "no evidence" and "any effect whatsoever" do you not understand? Is that kind of like not understanding "...
shall not be infringed"?

"All the science of the IPCC is
unsound. I have come to this conclusion after a very long time. If you examine
every single proposition of the IPCC thoroughly, you find that the science
somewhere fails," Gray, who wrote the book "The Greenhouse Delusion: A Critique
of "Climate Change 2001," said.

"It fails not only from the data,
but it fails in the statistics, and the mathematics," he added.

Hence the name, "Junk Science".
Hey, wanna win some big money with global warming?

‘Dangerous time for
science'

Evans, who believes the UN has
heavily politicized science, warned there is going to be a "dangerous time for
science" ahead.

"We have a split here. Official
science driven by politics, money and power, goes in one direction. Unofficial
science, which is more determined by what is actually happening with the
[climate] data, has now started to move off in a different direction" away from
fears of a man-made climate crisis, Evans explained.

"The two are splitting. This is
always a dangerous time for science and a dangerous time for politics.
Historically science always wins these battles but there can be a lot of
causalities and a lot of time in between," he concluded.


Causulties? You mean like sovereignty, common sense, human rights, liberty and my wallet?

Carbon trading ‘fraud?'

New Zealander Bryan Leland of the International Climate Science Coalition warned participants that all the UN promoted discussions of "carbon trading" should be viewed with suspicion.

"I am an energy engineer and I know something about electricity trading and I know enough about carbon trading and the inaccuracies of carbon trading to know that carbon trading is more about fraud than it is about anything else," Leland said.

"We should probably ask why we have 10,000 people here [in Bali] in a futile attempt to ‘solve' a [climate] problem that probably does not exist," Leland added.


Fraud you say? Perish the thought. They're out there saving the children and baby harp seals while you lap at the teats of big oil, big coal, the Big Three and Haliburton!!!

'Simply not work'

Owen McShane, the head of the International Climate Science Coalition, also worried that a UN promoted global approach to economics would mean financial ruin for many nations.

Like the U.S. This will work quite nicely in conjunction with our present immigration policy.
We'll just blow right by second-world status and go directly to third-world.


"I don't think this conference can actually achieve anything because it seems to be saying that we are going to draw up one protocol for every country in the world to follow," McShane said. (LINK)

"Now these countries and these economies are so diverse that trying to presume you can put all of these feet into one shoe will simply not work," McShane explained.

"Having the same set of rules apply to everybody will blow some economies apart totally while others will be unscathed and I wouldn't be surprised if the ones who remain unscathed are the ones who write the rules," he added.


I would not be surprised, either.

‘Nothing happening at this conference'
Professor Dr. William Alexander, emeritus of the University of Pretoria in South Africa and a former member of the United Nations Scientific and Technical Committee on Natural Disasters, warned poor nations and their residents that the UN policies could mean more poverty and thus more death.

Which is a typical end result for the policies of do-gooders, commies, and big government.

"My message is specifically for the poor people of Africa. And there is nothing happening at this conference that can help them one little bit but there is the potential that they could be damaged," Alexander said. (LINK)

"The government and people of Africa will have their attention drawn to reducing climate change instead of reducing poverty," Alexander added.

Ummm - are you implying that the government of Africa is doing a good job now? Well, I guess you can't bat 1000... Now go check out all the linky goodness below. Maybe you'll sleep better tonight!

I'm Not Offended, Just Puzzled

From a real conservative (I guess):

Iowa Prediction [Rick Brookhiser]

While the Huckabees swarm, keep an eye on Ron Paul, whom I predict will do better than any poll shows.
I don't know how many wicked idiots there are in Iowa, but every single one of them will come out.

I find this interesting, as most of the people I interact with that support Dr. Paul are fairly devout Christians.
And from what I can ascertain (and this is anecdotal, of course); they would appear to be, for the most part, of above average intelligence.

I see neither idiocy, nor wickedness in these folks; just people who are weary (and wary) of big government elitists.
And none of them I know have ever spammed a site or poll, either.

Also noteworthy, at least to me: this is posted on NRO, which is supposedly a conservative publication. And they're attacking the supporters of a pro-gun, low tax, small government, protect the borders, pro-life candidate who actually has a voting record to back up what he says. Maybe it's because they can't attack the man himself.

Curiouser and curiouser...

1. The purpose of fighting is to win. There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield and skill is more important than either. The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

2. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, he'll just kill you.

3. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

4. I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.

5. America is not at war. The U.S. Military is at war. America is at the Mall.

6. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

7. A reporter did a human interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The reporter recognizes the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and asked him "Why do carry a .45?” The Ranger responded with, "Because they don't make a .46."

8. An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

We're sorry, there is no such document as the Bill of Rights.

I guess we know Ron Paul isn't their webmaster.

Mailing It Today.

So I got a letter from Karl Rove yesterday (I thought he quit).

It was from him and the RNC, wanting cash. Apparently, all my cash they're spending in Washington just isn't enough.

Below is what I mailed them in their own postage-paid envelope; their own letter modified, with a Ron Paul card stapled to it.













So what's being on one more subversive list going to do to me anyway?'
I mean, I already buy gun-stuff through the mail and internet, NICS checks, and the like. Not to mention this site.

And I offer many apologies to the hard-core R's for my blatant misuse of RNC funds regarding the return envelope...

Everybody Panic.....NOW!!!

I'm getting a cold.
That sucks.

But what really scares me is it might be THE SUPER-DANGEROUS DEADLY KILLER COLD BUG FROM HECK!! Run!!!

This was a top news story this week on the national AND my local news.



Are people so devoid of logic and critical thought that they worry about a headline like this? That's 6.6 deaths a year in a country of over 300 million (and only half of those are here legally!).

Should not this be the next top headline:

Lightning—The Underrated Killer

In the United States, there are an estimated 25 million lightning flashes each year. During the past 30 years, lightning killed an average of 62 people per year. This ties the average of 62 deaths per year caused by tornadoes.
I mean, combined, tornadoes and lighting (which oft travel in pairs!) cause 20 TIMES MORE DEATHS THAN THE CAPTAIN TRIPS KILLER MUTATED COLD VIRUS!!!

Apparently, PSH is not just relegated to things involving firearms.

I think I'm going to go curl up in the fetal position in my basement and try not to get hurt by the world...

Thursday, November 22, 2007

My Family

My country and its defenders

Priorities

I just saw Bush on television pardoning a turkey, but he never said a word about wrongfully-imprisoned border guards Ramos and Compean.

I guess turkeys , child-murdering rapists, eliminating national sovereignty and illegal alien drug dealers are higher on the presidential hierarchy than front-line border guards charged with protecting the country.

How terribly sad.
I say we blow away the turkey and let the two gentlemen out of prison.
How about it, George?

Say a prayer for those guys and their families this holiday.

Today Is National Ammo Day!







Go buy at least 100 rounds of ammo today.
It shows patriotism, foresight, and politically correct (but not PC!!) speech.

I'm right in there with you...

Saturday, November 17, 2007

A Couple of Things.

November 19th (this Monday) is National Ammo Day.
Yay!!

So do your part and show the world that firearms owners are a financial block that is the real deal.

Plus, us with more ammo is a good thing.

From the Ammo Day site:
What is National Ammo Day?

November 19 is National Ammo Day.

It is a nationwide BUYcott of ammunition. You buy ammunition. 100 Rounds a person.
(CUG note: AT LEAST!)

The goals of Ammo Day:
The goal of National Ammo Day is to empty the ammunition from the shelves of your local gun store, sporting goods, or hardware store and put that ammunition in the hands of law-abiding citizens. Make your support of the Second Amendment known--by voting with your dollars!
Another worthy goal, which I will be helping to attain, and I truly hope you do, too:

Tea Party '07
On December 16th, 1773, American colonists dumped tea into the Boston Harbor to protest an
oppressive tax. This December 16th, American citizens will dump millions of dollars into the
Ron Paul presidential campaign to protest the oppressive and unconstitutional inflation tax -
which has enabled a flawed foreign policy, a costly war and the sacrificing
of our liberties here at home.

Please join us this December 16th 2007 for the largest one-day political donation event in
history. Our goal is to bring together 100,000 people to donate $100 each,
creating a one day donation total of $10,000,000.

Feeling rebellious, revolutionary and/or particularly patriotic?
Send the man some cash!

It's an anti-status quo statement if there ever was one...

Don't know who Ron Paul is, or only heard 3 Monkey talk about him?
Go check out what he stand for here: Ron Paul 2008
Look at the pull-down menu that says "Issues".

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm off to the gun show. (But I'll still buy some ammo on Monday!)

If these don't make you laugh, you need to drink more or something.

It's always good to have a little wiggle room:

And here's one for the ladies. (With my apologies.)



They have a ton of these on Youtube, if you're interested.
Maybe GM should hire the ad people to do some commercials for them!

Does That Mean Boyscouts Are Psychos?

I was watching some stupid CSI type show, and the were on the scene where the cops shot some psycho guy with an EBR (that's an Evil Black Rifle for you GFW's (see definition 1).

To paraphrase, the actard said, "This guy is a piece of work. He's got guns, ammo, MRE's, water. What a nut case."

And here I'm thinking and mentally inventorying -

EBR - check (at least)
ammo - check
extra food - check
cases of water - check
camping gear, blankets, lanterns, cook stove, knives, etc - check
weather radio - check
flashlights - check
compass - check
grab and go box - check
beer - check

So I'm thinking, what's wrong with that?
Is being prepared a sign of being unstable and a threat to the government (at least in Hollywieird's eyes)?

I'll bet the folks that lived through Katrina have a couple of supplies laid in now.

Here's a totally sweet emergency kit, just for kicks: The Smith and Wesson Emergency Survival Kit, complete with the S + W 500! Woo-hoo!!
(Click pic for a better view of the sweetness!)

Jake is just chillin'.

Now I remember why I don't stay mad... It's probably that whole unconditional love/super cuteness factor.


Those sneaky bas***ds!!

The Axman Cometh

I've got to be in the mood to listen to Stevie Ray Vaughn.

His music, for me was kind of an acquired taste.
But regardless, that man sure can play a guitar.

Enjoy.

The Unelectable Canidate...

Look out, Rudy.

When one gets in bed with government, one must expect the diseases it spreads.
Ron Paul

When the federal government spends more each year than it collects in tax revenues, it has three choices: It can raise taxes, print money, or borrow money. While these actions may benefit politicians, all three options are bad for average Americans.
Ron Paul


Ron Paul's Record Online Haul

Today, Nov. 5, marks not only Paul's best fundraising haul in a single day -- more than $3.5 million by 9 p.m. EST -- but online observers say it's also the most money raised by a candidate on the Web in a single day. And the day's not over yet. "Damn. Wow. Um, that's pretty awesome," said a stunned Jerome Armstrong who served as Howard Dean's online strategist. Armstrong, the founder of the popular blog MyDD, said Dean raised as much as $700,000 in one day toward the end of the primary race. "But not a million," Armstrong added. "What Paul is doing -- or what his supporters are doing -- is really impressive."


Gathering steam...

Ron Paul's $4.2 Million Record-Setting Day
CBNNews.com

Trying to catch up in a race that is leaving many in the dust, Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul made some forward progress Monday by putting $4.2 million in his fundraising bank -- a one-day record for a GOP candidate.

Paul's contributions registered for a 24-hour period ousted Mitt Romney as the GOP record holder for single-day donations.


Why not help a real conservative out? He may well be the only guy that can beat Hillary.
Gudy will never pull it off.

I've donated again, and my bumper stickers are on the way.
And don't forget to vote today.

I wonder if there are any libertarians running where I live....

Let Us Not Forget...

There has been much discussion here re: the Ron Paul thing, but let's not forget what this blog is about; fun and guns.

So, what do you get the little lady that has everything?
Well, you dress up her almost-pristine, pre-ban 1970's AR-15 with a little bling!

And then after, with the new bayonet and the six-position collapsible stock!
In the extended position:








And the collapsed position:








Mmmmmm.... evil, black plastic goodness. The missus has a good weapon, there.
Of course, her hubby has to have one to match it!

Gun pron; it's what's for dinner!!

If You Can Help...

Via Wyatt:

Members of the Philadelphia Police Department's 35th District have established a trust fund for the family of Police Officer Chuck Cassidy, who was killed in the line of duty on Thursday, November 1, 2007 .

Anyone wishing to make a donation can do so in the following ways:

By mailing a check payable to:

The Charles Cassidy Family Memorial Trust Fund
901 Arch Street
Philadelphia PA, 19107

Donations can also be personally taken to the 35th Police District, which is located at 5960 N. Broad St. Philadelphia PA, 19141 or to any of the following Philadelphia Police and Fire Credit Union Branches:

God bless him and his family and friends.

And no offense, Wyatt, but remind me to steer clear of Philly for a while.
And watch your ass, dangit!

Sorry About His Luck

I went to the doctor yesterday because when I got my (second) dental implant a couple of months ago, my blood pressure was high. This is new.

So the doc checks me out, writes me a couple of scrips for the BP meds and my chronic insomnia and then tells me that I need to cut down on salty foods like snack crackers, chips and bacon.

Cut out bacon.

Bacon.

B-A-C-O-N.

I'm going to miss him.
Visitation will be from 6-8 Friday, and services will be Saturday afternoon.

Pity.
He was so young...

Thursday, November 01, 2007

Interesting.

One of the major complaints I hear about Ron Paul is about the type of people that support him.

A couple of points -

1. I don't think anyone who reads this site, who knows me personally, can honestly claim I am a liberal moonbat, Marxist, Nazi, truther, peacenik or wingnut (although I am guilty on the gunnut charge).
The same can be said for the people I know personally that are supporters.

2. Here you have a guy that can convince hippies, commies, leftists, and libtards to vote for a pro-gun, pro-life, small government, anti-UN, less-tax Republican; and that's a bad thing?

Curious.

Coming Out of the Closet

Due to my feelings, deep introspection, and perhaps the undue influence of a muscular guy with a mowhawk and a really big, uh... IQ, who drinks fruity mixed drinks with tiny umbrellas in them, I have made the conversion.

It's true.
I'm a Ron Paul supporter.

It started out small... I don't know what happened.
Just little things at first, like the war on (some) drugs, the TSA tards, the Patriot Act, a government ID for my dog, the NAFTA superhighway, the NAU, and my life history going into a federal database because I bought 12 cold tablets.

The Real ID. The Number of the Beast?

Gather 'round!
Freedom's on the march, right?

And then there's the whole gun thing...

Let's face it, Ron Paul is a conservative. A real one.
Not a "well I'm one now!' conservative.

And his voting record backs that up, unlike the "others".

Pro-life? Really?
Then check this out: Ron Paul on Abortion

And I'm not alone.

I know, I know. I've heard it all. MoRons, Paulbots, moonbats, spammers...
Neo-Nazis, White Supremacists, Holocaust Deniers, 9/11 “Truthers” Ron Paulites.
Blah, Blah, Blah.
And he's not a "only the pro-war can be conservative" conservative.

I know I am going to lose some readers.
I hope I don't lose any friends.

I'm scared. My country is in peril.
Immensely more so from within than from terrorists and rogue nations.

Paranoid? Maybe.

But I look at England and California, and I see the state of the union in a decade or less.
A police state.
And I have a daughter and nieces and nephews.

So I'm voting for freedom.
And liberty.
And I'm voting for what is right.

And I'm sending the guy money. All I can afford.

And if I'm throwing my vote away, then that's my choice, isn't it?
But I am NOT EVER voting for a liberal just because he has an "R" in front of his name again.
The front runners that Hannity and Co. suck up to; forget it.
McRomney? Gudy? Forget it.

I pushed hard for Bush. Look at my archives.
I took time off from work to go to a rally for him.
Yard signs, donations, the phone bank on election day, heated discussions to sway voters... you name it.
I was on the team.

And he stabbed me in the back. Numerous times.
No more.

I understand the people I talk to that don't vote now.
I don't agree with them; but I understand.

Arguments?
Bring it.

Pro-gun, pro-life, anti-NAFTA, anti-amnesty, anti-IRS, anti-Federal Reserve, anti-UN, anti-ATFE(FU).
Never voted for a congressional pay raise.
And the list goes on.

So, there's my secret.

Shame?
Not really. Although the lead-in post was (in my mind) comical.

But the comments were funnier.
For the record: I am not gay, I am not MAC user (shudder), or a lesbian, Celion Dion fan, Hillary fetishist, Survivor or Dancing with the Stars fan, Michigan fan (nor Ohio, actually - I'm sports-neutral), or a foreign car or Prius owner.
(Granted, if I'm not gay, I obviously don't own a Prius)

Will I really be called names, and be shunned, and called stupid and paranoid and ignorant?
Yes.

Yes, I will.

But I can handle it.

And please, consider what I've said, and what I'm posting in the future.
I'm not crazy (or at least not any crazier than when I started this minuscule blog almost 3 years ago), and I love this country only behind my family and Jesus.

If we vote for the same type of folks, we're going to get the same results.

God bless America.
Ron Paul for President 2008.

ePostal Contest and a Survey

My friend doubletrouble of Rattail Bastard (that's a type of file, folks) did have a poll to take about guns, but it's gone.
Hmmmm. Maybe he'll bring it back.

And the ePostal match, Handgun Golf is still going on over at Traction Control, too.
This would be a good day to get in some practice!

And I still need to update the "Bloggers I've Met" blogroll in my sidebar, but I haven't forgotten.

I Can't Take It Anymore















I can't go on living a lie.

I can't go on decieving my readers, my friends, and my family.

My hidden shame.

My darkest secret.

My inner turmoil.

Was I born this way?

Is it a choice I've made and don't realize it?

I have to let the world know who I am.

I'll have to live with the epithets, slurs, and ridicule.

I can hide no longer...

Stay tuned.

Gunblogger Rendezvous II Highlights.

(Click on any pic to bigify.)

A couple of these are my pictures, but many of them are courtesy of the gracious Joe Huffman, of Boomershoot fame, amongst other things.

Why Joe's pictures? He took way more pictures than I, with a much better camera, and the resultant pictures were, as one might expect, much better.

Thanks, Joe!
Here is Joe and his lovely and charming wife, Barb.













They are standing by the car where Joe found my Microtech knife that I would have been most upset to lose. Thanks again!

The MAN who started the Gunblogger Rendezvous, the talented Mr. Completely.
Take a bow, sir!












And Mr. C's better half, the comely Keewee, of Keewee's Corner.




















And yes, she shoots... a lot.
Here she is with Say Uncle and his 9mm AR15 (very cool, BTW).















The most beautiful shooting range I've ever seen...












Joe Huffman's ultra-accurate, loooong range, match-grade Remington 700 in 300 Winchester Magnum, or as Kevin calls it, a godswitch. Heh.
Note the totally old-school HP calculator on the bench for gooey gun geeky goodness. Yes, he calculates range and ballistics and bullet drop and.... "stuff" with it.
Gun geeks are the best geeks.












USCitizen loading up the AR15 50BMG conversion!
And yes, he is an FFL and Class III dealer! Yay!!















Oh, yeah...














Yes, size does matter; note the 22 Long Rifle cartridges in the magazines at the bottom left.


















Say Uncle at the trigger of the 50.
Don't think you don't get some looks from the other folks there when that puppy goes off!!!












Yikes! A split 50BMG case!! Mondo bad juju.








As was the case last year (the Kalashnikitty shirt), Melody Byrne once again had the best t-shirt at the range.



















Dirtcrasher from Anthroblogogy engaging in some stress relief with his beautiful 45 Colt Long revolver. What a sweet shooter that piece is. Update: I almost forget that Dirtcrasher dropped about $200 bucks on refreshments and never asked for recompense. What a guy!!
















Our guest of honor Charles "Chuck" Ziegenfuss, and Mr. Completely.
And can Chuck shoot! Wow!!
He also got to meet Steven Tyler of Aerosmith on his way home.
Cool!




















What a great time.
And for a great cause, too: Project Valor-IT. Check it out. Give 'em some cash.

I should have some more stuff up soon. Lots of gun pron.

New ePostal Match, and ePostal Results.

I had gotten so busy with the Rendezvous that I forgot about the ePostal contest.

The new contest is being hosted by my friend USCitizen over at Traction Control.
And what a great picture for it!

















It's a pistol golf match, and the last one was quite challenging, as I recall.

I took a respectable 2nd place, and I think this is the first time this season I beat Mr. Completely! Of course, that will change with this next contest, but it will still be fun...

Lock and load, folks!
