Who OK'd the flight
What was the purpose of the flight
Who know about it ahead of time
Who paid for it
Who was on the plane
I bet this was a Dem piece of BS Propaganda photos. . . go ahead and prove me wrong. Bet a bunch of Obama money folks were on the plane too. . . . . again, prove me wrong.
Why did they not warn the folks in NYC about this ahead of time?
What was the cost of this vs doing a quick photo shop to get the photo and not scare the hell out of a major city. . . .
Amature hour in DC continues. . .
Now we have to see what will happen. I hope the Democrats can't make the most of this. They need to push how he betrayed his people. I hope he looses the next election to a real Conservative.
Of course one of the big question is will he also betray gun owners that supported him?
we will see.

they want to know if Obama is the Super President. . .
WTF? they then go on to give him a 60+% approval rating. . . . too bad that is not voters, the most recent voter poll put him under 50"% approval with voters.
These folks scare the crap out of me. . . They still think this ass is some kind of god or something. . .. WTF Folks??
This guy is Carter II, Noting more. No new ideas, no new plan, and no spine to stand up to anyone for us. We will be in a world of hurt soon because he has no guts to stand up to our enemies and the main stream media still push him. No wonder they are going broke, no one believes they deal in facets any more, they just push the liberal agenda for the Obots. . . .

Can we NOW talk about closing the border down there? All these illegals crossing every night bringing god knows what into our country. Well, along with drugs, and crime they now bring the flu. . ..
When are you folks going to suck it up and deal with reality instead of politically correct crap?!
Time to shut down the border with Mexico and let them deal with the mess they made down there. The crime, the drugs, and now the illness. Mexico is a pit that is falling apart. We need to protect ourselves from it NOW!
Some think this is a ploy by the NYT so the unions will give in. I am not so sure. The Globe has been here for years but it is not really a news paper any more. I have not gotten a daily paper from them in years. They went from reporting the news to pushing the left's agenda so now I only get the Sunday paper myself.
Why? Well I like the comics, my wife wants the ads and the rest is used to start the fireplace over the winter. The job section is OK when I was looking but not an issue now. . . .
So all I can say is you get what you deserve. You stopped reporting the news and became all about pushing politics. Why are you surprised that folks don't go to you for info any more? Oh Ya, you bunch of Liberals don't get it and think we all drink the same Kool Aid you do and want to read this crap. . . no, for news, I want FACTS, not editorials on who is right. Just FACTS.
You don't get that so I am not going to loose any sleep over you closing. You stop selling a product people want, you go out of business. . . . . no problems there

They are also so sure you sheep will put them back in office that they want to raise the sales tax from 5% to 7% too.
Now we need to push for removing any incumbent that votes for any increase in fees, taxes, or anything else that costs us money in 2010. This state has gone around the bend. The folks on Beacon Hill don't get it. They ignored us, ignore the protests and keep taking more and more of our money.
The time has come to vote them out and see what we can do with some new faces in charge. It can't be worse than what we have now. . . .
And the really bad news? Obama ran on the same platform our Governor did. . . so you can expect the same crap on a national level keeping us in this depression . . .
Update - found out 7% sales tax would put us as the or one of the highest in the country. . . ya us

Too bad statistics put more kids killed in tubs, cars, and may other ways than guns. But that does not fit the agenda does it?
Our media has lost it's way. They just can't report facts any more it seems
Tuesday, April 21, 2009
Knowing this info Obama says he will not allow that type of interrogation to continue. He had to choose between the comfort of a KNOWN terrorists and the safety of the American people whom he swore to protect . Guess who he chose. . . . . . yep, the terrorist.
To top it off the he is leaving it up to his AG to decided if they will prosecute the hero's that saved LA. He does not have the guts to make the call himself. This way if the public back him it was his call, if they don't then the AG takes the fall for him. He is a disgrace to the office. He continues to show weakness to our countries enemies and to court those who would destroy us. We need desperately to get the Dems out of power in 2010 to stop his agenda. And we MUST vote him out in 2012.

Patriots' Day (sometimes incorrectly spelled Patriot's Day or Patriots Day) is a civic holiday commemorating the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the American Revolutionary War. It is observed in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and state of Maine (once part of Massachusetts), and is a public school observance day in Wisconsin. Observances and re-enactments of these first battles of the American Revolution occur annually at Lexington Green in Lexington, Massachusetts, (around 6am) and The Old North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts (around 9am). In the morning, a mounted reenactor with State Police escort retraces Paul Revere's ride, calling out warnings the whole way.
This was the shot that started it all. . . .

When MSNBC is wasting the air time to comment on it then it was big. If it was small, they would not waste the time.
MSNBC is trying to tell us all that the Tea Parties had nothing to do with taxes, nothing to do with big government, nothing to do with people wanting to take control back from the government. You know what they say it was all about?
Protesting a black president.
Yep, that is it. They will tell you (and did on the air) that all the tea party folks are racist and bigots and that is why they are protesting.
Ya. . . That is it.
When the media has to push this much smoke you know we are on to something folks. . . Lets keep it going!
I hear rumors of another one on the 4th of July. I am all for it! I hope I can get into this one!
So stand tall folks, they are running scared already!
Thursday, April 16, 2009
Funny how they are all a bunch of right wing nuts and fringe folks. . . If it was protesting Bush they would be reported totally different - "Bunches of Loyal Americans protest Bush".
Ya, what double standard.
CNN didn't even try to hid the bias calling the protests just "Obama Bashing"
Jay had a great bit on the news headline over at Marooned
Amazing how the view changes when folks are protesting Obama and the Dems vs Bush. . .

The Tea Parties are a success!
and all Obama can do is talk about hit tax cuts. . . ya, that $11 per week you will get. What a joke. That is not enough for a family of four to go to the movies once a month on and this fool thinks he saved the economy. . .
This is a start, we need to keep it going. The left can not ignore this although they will try. This was the first peaceful step in retaking out country from the government!!!!
And Homeland Security says it stands by it's statement that returning vets and us Constitutionalists "right wingers" are a danger to the country. If the right is the danger then answer me this. . . why is it the lefty protests where they trash the city, and have violent uprisings and I have yet to hear of one issue with today's Tea Parties. . ..
All I can say is I am honored to be mentioned in the same breath as the returning vets! I would be proud to cover their backs any day any time thank you! The only danger we are is to the fools taking liberties with our Constitution. We are not socialist and I won't let you make my kids grow up in a socialist country.
I hope Obama and the Dems and Republicans got the message today. We are the People, they work for US.
I bought my guns already, an M&P in 9MM and a 12 Ga Mossberg. . . and I wish I could go to a tea party but the new job is a bit more important since I don't have any time I can take off yet. . .. That is the advantage the Dems have, most don't have a job so they can protest whenever. . ..
Anyway. . . From Day by Day

The fact that illegals have kids is supposed to make us all upset and want to keep them in the US.
You came here Illegally you get sent home. Your kids should not be given citizenship in the US since you are here illegally. Send them home too.
Don't like it? Go home now before you have kids!
Every other country in the world can toss out their illegals, why can't we? It would be easy. Make it so painful to get caught hiring them that no one will give them work. No work they will find a way home. No cost to us. DONE
Plenty of news about Obamas new dog and other BS, but nothing on the protests.
It is also interesting that when Bush was POTUS that dissent was patriotic, just ask Hillary. Now Homeland security is tracking this stuff as a danger to the US. . . .
Want to know who else they are tracking? Returning solders and Vets because they are "Right Wing" and are a threat to our country. . . .
We are living in a very dangerous time folks. Obama is now using the power of the Federal Government to do exactly what the left accused Bush of. They are going to do their best to squash any free speech that does not say what they want. And they have the news media to help.
You want to see how big a story the Tea Parties are look at this:
View 2009 Tea Parties in a larger map
Yet not a word on the news. They are still covering for Obama big time.
At this rate I can easily see the Dems being tossed out of control of Congress in two years. Problem is they probably see that to so they will try to ram as much of their socialist crap through as they can before then. The news is trying to keep this quite but I doubt Obama and team don't know about the size of the Tea Party movement.
He is Carter 2, but worse. He needs to slow down. admit he is not doing what most folks want, and get back to listing to us, he works for US. If not, we are in for a very interesting election. Some say he will legalize the illegal immigrants so he can get the votes. Others talk about how he has illegally taken control of the Census into the White House to rig the next election. I hope he has more brains than that because if folks think he rigged the 2010 election like he did the 2008 with the medias help then things will get very ugly in this county fast.
There is a reason the gun and ammo makers are doing a booming business and the news won't admit that either. Folks don't trust Obama and they see things falling appart. I am sure Obama knows this too which is why he is moving Homeland Security against the Conservitivs and Right Wing folks calling them a threat. Nothing good can come from this - I hope he cuts it out before it gets out of control on either side.
Anyway - For those at the Tea Partys tomorrow - THANKS! I wish I could be there too but I don't have the vacation time with the new job to do it. I am sure there are many other folks that have to work too. That is one advantage the Dems have. Since most of their base is unemployed and lives off my and your pay check they can protest any time. We have to make a living to support them. I am sure the numbers you see tomorrow will be just a small fraction of the people in this country that feel the same way, they just couldn't all be there. Not that the news will cover it anyway. . . .
I am sure they are not done yet but when you need the media out there pumping out lies for you, then you look at the show's comments page on line and see all the pro gun stuff you have to think it ain't working any more. . . .
We still have a ways to go folks, but it looks like a lot of people are waking up to the fact that gun control has nothing to do with guns or our safety and everything to do with controlling us. . ..

Now I think we need to keep him alive. He can buy his life by pointing out where we can find more pirates and then we can put all that nice technology we have to use blowing them up.
They now have the balls to threaten us for our actions. Thank Obama and his indecisiveness for that one. This should have been over days ago. I am sure Obama is all beat up over killing these savages. I don't care how old they are, they were old enough to attack a ship, they are old enough to pay the price for it.
So what do we do now? We need to slap them down and hard. Make sure they see there is no future in this. I am all for the total destruction of every port and boat or ship we can find in a Somali harbor or tied to a dock. . . If they can't find anything that floats they can't be a threat any more can they?
And for those of you who say we can't do this because of the need to get them humanitarian aid all I can say is too bad for them. The ship they took captive was delivering that aid and look what it got them. How many years has the world tried to help these savages and got nothing but kicked in the face for it.
Reality check folks. Some people don't want our help or our civilized ways. It is there country so let them live in it the way they want, fighting each other. As long as they don't spread the conflict to other countries or back on to the open sea then let them keep killing each other. It is not worth one American life to try to help them. Been there done that and they screwed us. Face it and move on. I am sure we can find other parts of our own country never mind the rest of the world that would be glad for the help and would not try to kill us for bringing it to them.

OK, they are looking at why the gun and ammo sales are doing so well in a recession. . .
starts off with the deadly shooting we have been having. Then moved on to stock on gun makes going up 4x since September. Sales are up all over.
Gun show, says they will sell thousands of guns over a weekend. Nancy (from 60 min) walked around the gun show with a pro gun "gun lobby" rep. Did mention that they are doing background checks at the show and lots of them. Also mentioned prices are up. The gun guy says the price is up due to bad economy and folks wanting a gun as insurance to protect themselves if the economy fails.
Also shows an add about Second Amendment - ad insinuates that you need to get your gun now before they are banned - and how folks are buying guns due to Obama and fear of gun bans. Fear of Obama is blamed for an ammo shortage. Asked if gun dealers are whipping up fear, said no, politics did it for them - people see what may be coming so they are getting guns and ammo now while they can.
Did point out that any private seller can sell a gun without the check. Private sales don't need background check. Talking about Virginia Tech again. Got the VT students on camera saying that we need to close the "gun show loophole". One was a victim the other a family member of a victim that died. Brought out the same family member from the VT shooting that was on the Friday 20/20 show. Told how he bought guns without an ID.
At least they have the gun lobby as they call it there to give the other side of the story. They brought up that students should be able to have guns. Discussed how Choe shot himself as soon as the cops showed up. Asked them what kind of difference would have been made if a student had challenged him. 60 min said you may get a bunch of armed Choe's if students are armed - Pro gun guy says ya but you will have plenty of other students to stop him. Reporter says they are kids, he replies who is in Iraq and Afghanistan now fighting for us?
Played up how the VT folks lost to the gun lobby and did not pass the law to close the "loophole" in VA.
Started to bring up the Mexico side of things too. Then started to list off all the recent shootings and tried to tie it to the AWB being over.
Got Diann Finstine on to push how bad assault weapons are. She claims that gangs, and bad guys are all using assault weapons. Showed Congress #2 democrat saying that gun control laws are a hassle and no one wants to stick out their necks on this. That they use to talk alot about it but now no one will stick out his neck
Pro gun guy told how even though the Dems now run Congress they have much more pro gun folks in congress. Tells how they tossed anti gun Republicans and put in pro gun Democrats. Finstine says the NRA has a strangle hold on congress. She says no one told her to back off the AWB.
Also brought up how the White house does not want to deal with the AWB now due to the diversion. Finstine says she will pick the time and place to bring it up again.
They (Nancy from 60 Min) admit 60% in 2000 is now down to 49% that favor stricter gun laws. They admit that gun laws are loosing the backing of the people. The support is continuing to go down.
Overall not a bad report for 60 minutes. . .
More HERE on CNN.
Took them long enough. About time Obama got his head out of his ass and let the Navy do what they do best and save a US Citizen. This should have been over days ago.
We need to react faster than this if we ever want to send the message not to mess with our ships.
Congrats to the US Navy on a job well done. You make us proud to be AMERICAN!!!

A place for you to report un-Obama er sorry Un-American activity. Now if Bush had done this there would be all kinds of screaming but since this is to help Zero this is ok. . . .
Wow, That is scary. The folks with the tinfoil hats are out in force now. . ..
Remember Obama sorry the government is your friend, you like the government, to speak against the government is bad, you don't want to be bad do you?
From Oleg. He has a lot of great stuff. Go give it a look

You can't protect yourself. . . . .
More later as the show goes on
Nice set up for the first one. Guy with NO concealed training shown how he can't get his gun out quick and use it in a drill for an attack. . . DUH. What a set up to make gun owners look bad. the civilians had at most 100 hours on a range, most had less. . . all newbies. One claims to be a gun expert with 100s of hours. None claim any training. Other two students also fail the test. Somehow I doubt anyone that did well would have gotten air time.
Show pushes how much training cops have that you don't. . . . Too bad most cops get to the range for qualification once a year and that is it. . . . more lies. Most cops do not train the way they talk about it on the show, at least non that I have talked to.
Facts are that most civilians that are in a shooting is that they are more accurate than the cops, and less likely to hit the wrong person. . . no mention of that so far.
Dad takes kid to gun range. . .
shows dad taking kid to the range to shoot automatic Uzi and AK. No .22 or semis. Also goes over how the kid in MA killed himself with the Uzi.
Then quickly goes on to show kids that shoot their friends and kids playing with guns left out for them to play with. Showed the kids playing with guns after the Eddy Eagle program like one class will change them. I doubt any of these kids have been trained before. Parents are shocked. . . don't know why if they never discussed it with them.
Then move on to high school kids finding again that probably never trained but they did a bit better. Still did not do well. Then they set it up to make them look bad with a producer acting as a kid to do peer pressure. Wow. Who would have thought that untrained folks are dangerous with guns. . . again DUH. No info on if any of these kids grew up around guns or had any experience or training with them. I would bet no the way they acted. More proof that hiding guns and lack of training on them is more dangerous than training.
More examples of kids shooting other kids with guns, no kids hunting, no kids at the range with dad or mom like normal folks. No kids learning to shoot, no comments on the four rules, no safety info. . . Just the one side. More propaganda. . .
Guns in Florida. Follow this little black kid who lives in the wrong side of town as he talks about gun fights in his neighborhood. Too much shooting at night. Kid interviews other kids who lost parents to guns in the area. There is a cop who says we know who killed your friends dad but we can't prove it in court since no one will go to court or tell the cops. They talk about the gangs and how easy it is to get a gun from the gangs here.
Another big surprise here. . live in the ghetto and there are gangs and guns. . .. DUH. More pushing how folks get killed by guns, no further mention that this is a big gang area. Most are probably gang bangers. . . .
Next, how many guns can you buy in a hour at a gun show with $5 grand. . . wonder if this is a straw purchase? Are they breaking the law on this? should be interesting to see. No mention on if he has a licence or not and what checks were done for that.
Buyer is in VA at a gun show. Lost his sister in Virgina Tech shooting. Pushing the gun show loop hole angle. . . Buys a gun in line to the show, a Glock like the one used at VT. Push no background check. Don't know the laws in VA, anyone know what the rules are for person to person sales in VA. Pushing that ANYONE can buy in a gun show. . . Got an AK clone, again no background check. He was asked for a licence for two shot guns but did not have to show it for an extra $100. Ends up after an hour and a "trunk load of guns". Story says this is the loophole. Private sellers are the problem for crime guns and anyone can get one at a show. No mention if any of the sellers he bought from had a store or were private sellers. Talked about the NRA and VA legislature not answering calls. Had a Fed cop there to say all the sales were legal with no questions asked. Ends with him missing his sister and how she would want him to keep pushing for closing the loophole. All the guns he got were tuned over to the cops.
Next - the danger of shooting a friend.
Quick recap of all the shootings recently and the experts say the best thing to do is run. . . Other expert says call for help on cell phone, hide or play dead. Cops saying think about your friends that you are putting in danger by defending yourself. Oh, one kid has a martial arts black belt - what does this have to do with guns? no idea. . . . None of these folks have done any training with guns to defend. No one thinks of bystanders. Then they get into folks that have killed family members and cops hit civilians so you will too. . . no comments on actually training to defend yourself.
Ends with comment that 60,000 folks die from guns. . .
Also push that the "trained" person in the shooting test did not do well and said he was not trained for this
What was missing -
No mention or talk with anyone who has successfully defended themselves with a gun.
No mention of the VA Law school shooting a year or two before the VT shooting that was stopped by armed students.
Pushed all the training cops get but kept showing SWAT teams. . . Most cops I have talked to only shoot once or twice a year to qualify. Some do more if they like shooting, many don't.
Overall a sales pitch for the gun control crowd. Very one sided "reporting"
Update - Another look at the show HERE (thanks Tam) and HERE from Snowflakes in Hell, And HERE for a Gun Rights look at it
Nice Quote on the lead reporter from the show :
“You know, I wanted to sit on a jury once and I was taken off the jury. And the judge said to me, ‘Can, you know, can you tell the truth and be fair?’ And I said, ‘That’s what journalists do.’ And everybody in the courtroom laughed. It was the most hurtful moment I think I’ve ever had.” – Diane Sawyer, Good Morning America, 7/12/07
She still does not get it
HERE but I think the headline says it all. They are not laughing with us in Europe folks. . . .
"Rules must be binding," declared Obama, referring to the fact that Kim had just breached UN Resolutions 1695 and 1718. "Violations must be punished." (Sounds ominous.) "Words must mean something." (Why, Barack? They never did before, for you - as a cursory glance at your many speeches will show.)
President Pantywaist is hopping mad and he has a strategy to cut Kim down to size: he is going to slice $1.4bn off America's missile defence programme, presumably on the calculation that Kim would feel it unsporting to hit a sitting duck, so that will spoil his fun.
Watch out, France and Co, there is a new surrender monkey on the block and, over the next four years, he will spectacularly sell out the interests of the West with every kind of liberal-delusionist initiative on nuclear disarmament and sitting down to negotiate with any power freak who wants to buy time to get a good ICBM fix on San Francisco, or wherever. If you thought the world was a tad unsafe with Dubya around, just wait until President Pantywaist gets into his stride.
He is a fool and they all know it. . . . they are lining up to take it out on us.
CNN shows a drastic drop from 50% to 39% of folks supporting gun control. And this after all the recent shootings. They don't get it.
I do. . . . Folks know that Obama and the government want to disarm us. The shootings are showing folks that the government can not protect them so they have to protect themselves. How do you protect you and yours? well the best way is a gun that you are trained with.
Gun sales are still through the roof. Here in MA permit classes are now booked months out due to demand for new permits.
America is waking up. We need to be responsible for our own safety and private gun ownership does that. It also reminds those in DC who works for who. . . . That is what the Second Amendment is all about. Keeping us safe from crime and a government gone out of control. . .
Well, considering I am use to a .380 it has a bit more of a kick. It also has fixed sights that will take some getting use to. I have to work on where they are set for. All my shots were a bit low but on the center line at least so I don't need to adjust windage. . .
Other than that? Great gun! I put about 70 rounds through it for a first time out. Now this is a Double Action Only gun so every trigger pull is a bit on the hard side but it is consistent. I think the harder trigger pull will be the tough part to get use to compared to my Markarov which is DO to start then Single Action like most autos.
Accuracy was good, I just don't shoot well with it yet. . . at about 20 yards I was on the paper and in the black for most shots. I even had a number of shots in the center so I was happy. I need more practice before I use it as a carry gun but I like it!
She fits the hand well and is easy on the hand for recoil. The 9mm is a bit louder than what I am use to also but not bad with plugs and head gear for hearing protection.
Now it is just about getting range time and getting use to the more powerful 9mm. I think she will make a great carry piece once I am comfortable shooting it! I have to say S&W made a nice gun here.

Pirates - no action. . . we should have a SEAL team on that boat but no. . . and we will do nothing more to them.
F-22 next generation fighter. . . in a beautiful imitations of Carter and the B-1 program this fool is looking to cancel it. . . .
He is also looking to cut back on our military. . . the one thing keeping us safe. . .
He has got to have done something we can impeach him for. He should be up for Treason if we could. But the Main Stream Media will keep him safe from any investigation.
Top that off with Nancy now talking AWB and the White House saying no we don't want the fight. . . could it be that Palosi sees the end of her power in the next election and wants to push through all they can while Obama thinks he still has a chance at a second term? I don't think he or she has a prayer. . . of course if they do win in 2010 the USA as we know it and as our founders knew it is dead.
And Obama - aptly named Zero is doing nothing. No threats, no retaliation. We need to slap them down hard for this or we are going to have more of it. . .
Germany is talking about putting Marines on all their ships. Seems the pirates tried to take a German Navy Oiler a few weeks back and guess what? NO GO since they had some Marines on board.
I say the time has come back for the old Q ship. . . . lets send in a bunch of cargo ships that are armed to the teeth but don't look it. Let them try to board the ship and blow them out of the water. Dead pirates don't cause anyone problems. . . .
I am also up for reducing those few parts of Somalia that are not in the stone age to dust, blow them back to the stone age. Since pirates need boats we should hit every port they have and destroy any boats or docking there. Limit where they can launch from and the few that survive we get with Q ships and Marines on other ships.
Folks, as long as you pay them to get stuff BACK this will not stop. You start to kill them all and it will stop. They don't understand anything else. . . .

First is a new carry gun, a Smith and Wesson MP in 9mm.
And the nice folks at S&W will be sending me two free mags for it too!
The .45 was nice but the gun was an extra $70 and the ammo is $5 more per box of 50 too. Since I think hitting your target is more important then a big bullet that misses I went with the 9mm so I can afford more range time with it. . . .
Since that was a fairly inexpensive gun, I also got my hands on a used shotgun for trying out some skeet shooting with my daughter. For that I got a Mossberg 500a
I had to download a manual for it but since it will be a skeet gun more than anything it will do for now. Eventually I may get other barrels for it for home defense and such but it is a start. . .
Now just go get to the range to try them out. . . .
Saturday, April 4, 2009
It was a gun free zone so the bad guy had a free run of the place with no resistance to stop him
Cops showed up and did not hear shooting so waited an HOUR before going in. . . .
Proof that you need to be able to take care of yourself and your own. . .
OH ya, and remember NY has very strict gun laws such as no High Cap mags (10 rounds only folks) and gun registration and the rest. . . Guss all of this won't stop the bad guy, but then laws don't prevent crime do they? Just define it. . . .
Friday, April 3, 2009
Oh ya, gun control only means you are disarmed when the bad guy shows up. . . .
So now we have 13 or so dead so that the left can feel good about gun control instead of dead bad guys because someone there had a gun to fight back. . . .
The gun control crowd should be ashamed of themselves. The should beg forgiveness from the families of those killed and injured there because it is as much their fault as the gunman's. They made sure folks can't fight back. . . .
What ever happened to their cries of "If it can save just one life it is worth it!"? Based on that we should be looking at gun control as a distant bad memory. . .
Heck, even Canada is looking to drop their gun registry after admitting it is a money sink that did not help them catch any bad guys. . . .
When will we learn. . . .
While I am VERY excited about the new job and a bit nervous as it is all new (like everyone would be) and unknown I have to admit a bit of regrets leaving my current position.
The current job is a pain to get to and no real challenge which is why I am moving. But the people here are great. I have made a number of friends (even with folks that work for me) and I will miss seeing them every day. The company is going into some hard time, and management could be better but I think they will be OK in the long run. There are good folks here and if you let them they can do their jobs just fine and will get through this.
But the new and unknown calls! I am excited to get into this new job where I will be part of a team of Quality Engineers in a growing company. I will be the QE for a new product line they are bringing in house so that will be a lot of responsibility, work, and credit (I hope) when I get it done. The new job promises more growth potential professionally and pay wise so that is a win too.
As they say, as one door closes another opens. . . . On to the next adventure!

He is a fool, he is killing our economy and out country and everyone with open eyes can see this. Including the folks overseas - those that like us and those that don't. . . .
The phenomenon came to a head this week when we learned that the New York Times admitted it had sat on the story of Obama and ACORN's massive corruption--even to the extent of practically stealing the election. The Times further admitted that the story would have been a momentum-changer with the potential of shifting the election to McCain, yet it sat on the story anyway.
