Happy 1911 Day

I just recently joined the 1911 owners club, and must say I am glad I did.  One of the best shooting guns I have had the joy of firing. . . .
Thank you John Moses Browning for making such an excellent gun.

Road Trip

I just got back from a quick overnight in TN.  It was a successful business trip but opened my eyes a bit to.  Now I normally carry a gun when I am home, I always have at least a knife on me.  For this trip, due to the short time and need to do quick transfers I didn't take anything I couldn't carry on the plane.

Than means I spend almost two days in Memphis with nothing on me for weapons.  I didn't think this was an issues at the time but it felt weird when I was there.  I felt like something was missing, I was missing something. . .

It is strange how we become so accustom to having tools on us that we don't notice when we have them, but we sure do notice when we don't. . . .

Libya spirals out of control

So we lost an F15 today in Libya.  One pilot recovered, one still missing but they say they are getting him.

Watch as this train goes WAY off the tracks folks.  I can see this is just the beginning.  The rebels can't do crap, they don't have weapons and don't know how to use the few they have.

THIS will be our next Vietnam.  Just watch as Obama starts with supplying weapons, then troops to train them, then special ops, then ground forces as he looses more and more control of this and grasps tighter and tighter to try to regain it.  I think this will end him.

The down side is many of our best in the armed forces will be hurt or killed while he plays Bush III and tries to show us he is Presidential. . . .

Hey Left, you still happy you won?  I don't see the hope and change. . . .

Libya, Obama and the Double Standard again. . .

So Obama has gone and declared war on Libya, attacking the country when it is not a clear and present danger to the US. . ..

Can someone tell my how he can justify this attack??  Other than he is doing what the UN tells him like a good little drone.

I can't get over how if this had been done by Bush the left would be screaming bloody murder and all up in arms.  But since it is the left's god there is nothing, not a peep about this.  I am sure they will praise him for taking a stand and doing the right thing. . . . .

And to top it all off I want to know who is going to pay for all the missiles we just used. . . . The UN?  Why are we going to foot the bill for another war that no one here wanted to be part of???

Japan Reactors

Watching the news I can't help but fear for them, and pray they can pull this off.

I look at how Three Mile Island crippled the nuclear industry and power in the USA and I expect this will be a major blow to nuke power in Japan.

In today's energy hungry world this is not good.  We need to find a way to make nuke power not only work but be safe.  A few years ago I heard about pellet reactors that are not supposed to be able to melt down. . . . Where are they?  We need to look into this so we can move the world away from our dependence on oil.  Let the middle east go back to fighting over sand. 

So I keep my fingers crossed that Japan can pull this one out, it is critical not only for them, but for all of us. . .

Thoughts and prayers to those in Japan and around the Pacific who are even now waiting on the tsunami. . . .
If you are the praying type, please put in a good word for them. . . .

Obama Misery Index hits a record high

Obama Misery Index hits a record high

Well worth the read. . . Lets hope he is a one term failure. . .

MA pissing away money

You know the best part of living in Massachusetts is that we have eliminated all of our budget woes and are in great shape financially. How else can you explain these two bills trying to get passed on Beacon Hill:

MA State Senator Andrew Petruccelli and his bill to make GPS in guns mandatory

From The Truth about Guns- the bills wording-

The Global Positioning System Locators in Firearms Study Commission shall consist of 7 members; the House of Representatives Chair on Public Safety and Homeland Security, the Senate Chair on Public Safety and Homeland Security, one member of the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security, appointed by the Secretary of the Executive Office and Public Safety and Security, one designee from the Gun Owners’ Action League (“GOAL”), one Chief of Police from a city or town, appointed by the Governor, one designee from the City of Boston Mayor’s Office, appointed by the Mayor of Boston, one designee appointed by the Boston City Council.

The commission shall report to the general court the results of its investigation and study, together with drafts of legislation necessary to carry such recommendations into effect by filing the same with the clerk of the senate before the bill filing deadline for the 2013-2014 general court session.

And then we have the second winner - Micro stamping: (from No Lawyers, only guns and money)

Rep. David Paul Linsky (D-Middlesex) has introduced House Bill 1561 in the Massachusetts State House. The bill would mandate all semi-automatic rifles, shotguns, and pistols sold or manufactured in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts be capable of imprinting a "microstamp" on the face of a cartridge effective January 1, 2012.

So it would seem that all of our big problems have been fixed and we have time and money to waste on this foolishness.

All our roads are fixed, homeless housed, welfare folks cared for, jobs for all, our schools, fire and police have all they need. . . ..

Folks this is money wasted and that is all. The people of this state should be screaming at the top of their lungs at these fools for even bringing this BS up.

Micro stamps – supposed to imprint info about the gun on the bullet case when fired. Sounds good right? Ya, costs a fortune, has not be shown to work yet, and can be removed by the bad guy with 5 minuets and a file. . . .

GPS so you know where every gun is when a crime is committed sound good right? Who will pay for all the tracking software, people to run it and the HUGE storage needs for the data? And what do you do about all the guns already out there that don’t have it? And how do you keep the bad guys from just pulling the battery out?  I don't even think there is a GPS out there small enough to fit in a gun and handle the shock of use. . . .

We need a wake up call in this state. We have far more important things going on like our roads falling apart, our healthcare system bankrupting us, homeless folks, food banks running out of funds and food. . . I could go on but you get the point. This is BS.

Gun control, what you do instead of FIXING SOMETHING!

Time to write your rep again. . .

OK folks here we go again:
From the NRA

Last week, H.R. 822, was introduced in the U.S. House by Representatives Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.) and Heath Shuler (D-N.C.).  The measure would allow any person with a valid state-issued concealed carry permit to carry a concealed firearm in any state that issues concealed firearm permits, or that does not prohibit the carrying of concealed firearms. A state's laws governing where concealed firearms may be carried would apply within its borders. The bill also applies to Washington, D.C., Puerto Rico and U.S. territories.

H.R. 822 would not create a federal licensing system.  Rather, it would require the states to recognize each others' carry permits, just as they recognize drivers' licenses and carry permits held by armored car guards.

OK, so you will write your rep and ask them to support this right?


Social Security, how the Democrats Changed it. . .

 Very intersting read. . . .
Democrats are awfully sure of what isn't so.



Just in case some of you young whippersnappers (& some older ones) didn't know this.  It's easy to check out, if you don't believe it. Be sure and show it to your kids.  They need a little history lesson on what's what and it doesn't matter whether you are Democrat or Republican.  Facts are Facts!!!
Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the number and card were not to be used for identification purposes.  Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number, it became convenient to use it anyway and the message was removed.

An old Social Security card with the "NOT FOR IDENTIFICATION" message.

Our Social Security:

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social
Security (FICA) Program. He promised:

1.) That participation in the Program would be
Completely voluntary,

No longer Voluntary

2.) That the participants would only have to pay
1% of the first $1,400 of their annual
Incomes into the Program,

Now 7.65%
on the first $90,000

3.) That the money the participants elected to put
into the Program would be deductible from
their income for tax purposes each year,

No longer tax deductible

4.) That the money the participants put into the
independent 'Trust Fund' rather than into the
general operating fund, and therefore, would
only be used to fund the Social Security
Retirement Program
, and no other
Government program, and,

Under Johnson the money was moved to

The General Fund and Spent

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed as income.

Under Clinton & Gore
Up to 85% of your Social Security can be Taxed

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are
now receiving a Social Security check every month --
and then finding that we are getting taxed on 85% of
the money we paid to the Federal government to 'put
away' -- you may be interested in the following.

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ----

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the
independent 'Trust Fund' and put it into the
general fund so that Congress could spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically
controlled House and Senate.

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ------

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax
deduction for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ------

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the 'tie-breaking' deciding vote as President of the
, while he was Vice President of the US

------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ------

Q: Which Political Party decided to start
giving annuity payments to immigrants?


A: That's right!

Jimmy Carter
and the Democratic Party.
Immigrants moved into this country, and at age 65, began to receive Social Security payments! The Democratic Party gave these payments to them, even though they never paid a dime into it!

------------ -- ------------ --------- ----- ------------ ---------
Then, after violating the original contract (FICA),
the Democrats turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your Social Security away!

The worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it and believe that the Democrats are "for the people."
If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of
awareness will be planted and maybe changes will
evolve. Maybe not, some Democrats are awfully
sure of what isn't so.

But it's worth a try. How many people can YOU send this to?

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.

DOMA – or how Obama got Re-Elected

Someone please tell my what the heck is wrong with the Republicans. . . They were doing well up until Obama said no more Defense of Marriage Act support.  Now it is like they have ADD or something – Oh look, a squirrel!

Sorry. . .

Obama tossed them a distraction and they are falling for it.  Instead of staying on him about the budget, Obamacare and all the excess spending in DC he has them chasing this DOMA BS.  It plays right into his hands.  I doubt many voters  care enough about this for it to be a key issue, yet the Stupid parts is all over it like it is the end of the world.

Someone needs to give them a wake up call – FOOLS!  CUT  THIS SHIT OUT AND GET BACK TO WORK!!!

We want our country back, we want jobs, and the economy fixed, we don't care about Marry and Jill or Fred and Joe getting together.  GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON!

You would think they don't want to win in 2012 the way they keep this up. . .

We are Winning!

One state at a time we are slowly winning back our rights. . .
From the NRA via Say Uncle's Blog:
Wyoming becomes fourth state to respect Right-to-Carry without permit

Wyoming on Wednesday became the fourth state to allow citizens to carry concealed guns without a permit, with Gov. Matt Mead signing a bill into law as several other states considered similar action.

NRA Vote

From JayG -
A personal favor: For the 2011 NRA Board of Directors, please vote for James (Jim) Wallace for the board. Jim is the Executive Director of GOAL, the MA-based pro-2A group that has helped keep the wolves at bay for quite a few years. If there's anyone who has seen the elephant with regards to crappy gun laws and stemming the tide, it's Jim Wallace. I cannot imagine anyone working harder to protect our gun rights than Jim.

Gotta say I agree with Jay, here in MA they have tried to stick it to us every way they can. . . And it wouldn't hurt to get a little more NRA attention to help the fight too. . .
