Kerry Winkles

Stopped laughing at Tereza's husband long enough to have a look at what others where saying about John Kerry's latest gaff to end all gaff's, and Moxie is just so cute when she's mad.

"Congratulations, Democrats. No need to hide your contempt for America and our Armed Forces, just let it fly like the flag.

A self loathing, America-hating Presidential hopeful in action; if you aren't living under a hairy libshit and already drinking the organic, fermented, free range kool-aid, this is news. John Kerry's career is over."


When skeet or trap just isn't cutting it anymore. Get heavy. Real heavy.*

We Get Letters

"Don't Glocks have more accidental firings than other guns?"

Yes. Whenever there are more of one gun, that one gun will be credited with more of everything. Good, bad, and indifferent. The single biggest problems with Glocks, is that 75% of all law enforcement carries them, and the vast majority of negligent discharges are caused by improper handling by said LE.

Here's what you do to test this phenomenon. Slide in a magazine. Chamber a round. Place the gun on a table, or desk, or even the floor. Set up a video camera to keep track of the gun when you cannot be there to see what's happening.

When it goes off by itself, call me.

Voter Turnout...

Found the link at Pat's blog. And as I commented upon there, it's easy to see why Texas has such ludicrous gun laws, given the fact that only 53% of the eligible voters get off their fat lazy asses to make it to the polls.

Shameful. Downright shameful. Makes me proud not to be a Texan.

Maybe they can con the "men" of Texas into casting a ballot by calling it Cowboy Action Voting.

Hazleton, Beaners, And The ACLU...

Hazelton, PA is not really making any NEW laws , merely wishing to enforce existing one's regarding an illegal alien's immigration status.

Curiously enough, Stop The ACLU agrees with the ACLU's stand, offering that not every little city should be making one law after another to muddle the waters.

Bullshit. Read the following, then hie thee to STACLU to be amazed at what bilgewater the RINOS's there are awash with.

Guess it had nothing to do with religion, so STACLU cannot lend it's support. Typical chickenhawks.

ALLENTOWN, Pennsylvania Hispanic groups and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a lawsuit Monday against a small city that has sparked national attention over its immigration policies, setting the stage for a legal battle over its crackdown on illegal immigrants.
The ordinance, approved by the Hazleton City Council last month, imposes fines on landlords who rent to illegal immigrants and denies business permits to companies that give them jobs. The law empowers the city to investigate written complaints about a person's immigration status, using a database operated by the federal government.
Lawyers for the ACLU and the Puerto Rican Legal Defense and Education Fund and other groups planned to ask a federal judge for a temporary restraining order to prevent enforcement of the law, set to begin Wednesday.
"Immigration reform is an important issue but if every little town like Hazleton across the 50 states makes up their own rules about immigration, we're going to be left with an even bigger mess," said Witold J. Walczak, legal director of the ACLU of Pennsylvania.
Hazleton's ordinance has spurred dozens of copycat versions in small towns around the United States, as the illegal immigration issue has become a key campaign debate as the country heads into congressional elections next week. Some states and communities are accusing the government of inaction.
President George W. Bush signed last week a law that approves partitioning 700 miles (1,125 kilometers) of the U.S. from Mexico. Bush wants a guest worker program, but he has been met with tough resistance from his own Republican Party.
A bill passed by the U.S. Senate would have allowed immigrants to remain and eventually become citizens after working, paying fines and back taxes and learning English. The House of Representatives approved a separate bill that focused on enforcement measures such as subjecting those in the U.S. illegally to to felony prosecution.
The House and Senate did not meet to negotiate a compromise before recessing for the elections. The legislation Bush signed was a small portion of the House version.
In its lawsuit, the ACLU said the Hazleton ordinance and a companion measure violate the Constitution because they step on the federal government's exclusive power to regulate immigration.
Mayor Lou Barletta, disagreed, saying, "We are not regulating immigration in any way."
Barletta, who spearheaded the town law, contends illegal immigrants have brought drugs, crime and gangs to the city, overwhelming police and municipal budgets. He announced the crackdown in June, a month after two illegal immigrants from the Dominican Republic were charged with shooting and killing a 29-year-old man.
Barletta said he is convinced the law will be upheld by the courts and the city has assembled a legal team to defend it.
"Hazleton is prepared to fight and we will take this challenge to the highest court in the United States if that's what it takes to protect our legal citizens and quality of life," he said.
Hazleton, a city of about 31,000 residents, is about 80 miles (130 kilometers) from Philadelphia."

Illinois Teen Shouting for Jesus Dies When Police Taser Him

Not as ironic as Hannibal Lector's fascination with churches burned to the ground by lightning strikes...

JERSEYVILLE, Ill. — Authorities are investigating the death of a 17-year-old boy who died after officers in this St. Louis-area community shot him twice with a stun gun while he carried a Bible and cordless telephone, shouting "I want Jesus."

Roger Holyfield died Sunday night at a St. Louis hospital, a day after the former Jersey Community High School's confrontation with police.

In a statement obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press, police in this community about 40 miles north of St. Louis said Holyfield would not acknowledge officers who approached him, continuing to yell "I want Jesus."

Holyfield became combative when officers tried to calm him, then was shot with a stun gun after ignoring their warnings to comply with their commands, police said. He was shot a second time when he continued struggling, police said.

Holyfield vomited at the scene and was taken by ambulance to a local hospital, then was flown to St. Louis' Cardinal Glennon Hospital, where he died shortly after 8 p.m. the next day, police said."

If there's anything moderately wrong with your health and dental record, a taser is going to kill your ass dead. Case closed. It works differently on healthy people, essentially tiring their suddenly overloaded muscles out very quickly, but who hasn't seen someone stun-gun'd then shrug it off and seem capable of tipping over a bus.

After The Shooting Stops

There's story after story concerning law abiding citizens being harassed by police after defending themselves with a firearm. The one thing most recommended is for you to NEVER describe the events that led to a shooting until you've retained council. Even then, let the lawyer do the work. Your local Yellow Pages can help you find a gun-friendly attorney who specializes in self-defense cases, and it's a smart move to have one selected or on retainer beforehand. Keep his (the vast majority of such professionals are men) business card in your wallet and make it the first call they'll allow. Be as calm and collected as human possible. This is going to be a confusing, horrendous time for you, and the wrong word to the wrong cop can ruin your life. The following is advice from an attorney, and here's the link to the website.


"The police are very good at getting confessions. That's the easiest way for them to wrap up a case.

Even if they use deceptive methods to get a confession, like telling you things will go easier, or that a co-defendant has implicated you, this may be considered good police work, and a judge may allow the D.A. use your statement against you.

If you have a lawyer before you get arrested, s/he can find out if the police want to question you as a witness or a suspect.

If you're a suspect, your lawyer can tell the police that s/he doesn't want you questioned. If they question you after that, they won't be able to use your statements against you, unless they can prove that you blurted out a confession without being asked any questions.

If you're arrested and don't have a lawyer, don't answer any questions or make any statements about your case to the police or the D.A. Don't allow yourself to be video-taped. Whether they read you your rights or not, tell them you want to speak to a lawyer. Don't think you can outsmart the police.

Your silence can't be used against you, but it's very hard to defend you if you've made a confession (or admission). Even telling the police that you were at the scene of the crime but didn't do anything is an admission to an element of the crime.

If you're in jail, be careful what you say about your case to other inmates. You never know when one of them will try to work out his/her own problem by becoming a witness against you.


Don't consent to a search of your person, home, or car.

Don't consent to be in a line-up or show-up.

This doesn't mean you should physically resist, just that you should object and tell the police you want a lawyer.

Don't resist arrest or become verbally abusive to the police or you might find yourself charged with additional crimes, and possibly injured in the arrest process.


If the police intend to put you in a line-up, ask to have a lawyer there. S/he can determine if they have the right to do so, and if they don't, s/he can protect you.

If they do have the right to put you in the line-up, s/he can monitor the procedure to make sure it's done fairly.

If the persons placed in the line-up with you don't resemble you, s/he can ask the police to find better fillers. If they won't find better fillers, s/he can make notes of the differences in appearance between you and the fillers, to help you later when the D.A. tries to use the line-up identification against you.

The police usually take a black & white Polaroid picture of the line-up that doesn't clearly show the differences between you and the fillers.

If you didn't have a lawyer at the line-up, this photo and the police testimony will often be the only evidence a judge will have, to determine if the line-up was fair.

Your lawyer can help you decide the best place to sit and number to hold to minimize the chance of being picked out. S/he can make sure the police don't do anything improper, like suggesting in some way that the witness pick you out.

Having a lawyer at this early stage can be very helpful. If you're not picked out of the line-up in the first place, your case might be over before it begins, and you'll save yourself a great deal of hassle and money.

Identification cases are the most difficult to defend. Even though identification testimony is the least accurate, it's the most believed by jurors."

This is generic information, and it'd be a good idea to bone up on your local laws, but always remember to clam up and let the professional mouthpiece do the talking.

Hubble Hubbub

"Undersea corral? Enchanted castles? Space serpents? These eerie, dark pillar-like structures are actually columns of cool interstellar hydrogen gas and dust that are also incubators for new stars. The pillars protrude from the interior wall of a dark molecular cloud like stalagmites from the floor of a cavern. They are part of the "Eagle Nebula" (also called M16 — the 16th object in Charles Messier's 18th century catalog of "fuzzy" objects that aren't comets), a nearby star-forming region 6,500 light-years away in the constellation Serpens.

The pillars are in some ways akin to buttes in the desert, where basalt and other dense rock have protected a region from erosion, while the surrounding landscape has been worn away over millennia. In this celestial case, it is especially dense clouds of molecular hydrogen gas (two atoms of hydrogen in each molecule) and dust that have survived longer than their surroundings in the face of a flood of ultraviolet light from hot, massive newborn stars (off the top edge of the picture). This process is called "photoevaporation. "This ultraviolet light is also responsible for illuminating the convoluted surfaces of the columns and the ghostly streamers of gas boiling away from their surfaces, producing the dramatic visual effects that highlight the three-dimensional nature of the clouds. The tallest pillar (left) is about about 4 light-years long from base to tip.

As the pillars themselves are slowly eroded away by the ultraviolet light, small globules of even denser gas buried within the pillars are uncovered. These globules have been dubbed "EGGs." EGGs is an acronym for "Evaporating Gaseous Globules," but it is also a word that describes what these objects are. Forming inside at least some of the EGGs are embryonic stars — stars that abruptly stop growing when the EGGs are uncovered and they are separated from the larger reservoir of gas from which they were drawing mass. Eventually, the stars themselves emerge from the EGGs as the EGGs themselves succumb to photoevaporation."

Yes, even a curmudgeon can agree that the billion bucks necessary to keep the Hubble Space Telescope afloat is worth it. Sure, private companies could do what NASA does for a tenth the cost, but that's another story.

This Makes Me Wanna Like The Dude

Michelle Malkin nominates it as the most tasteless Halloween costume. She's a chick with no sense of humor, and it's icky so but of course.

All Your Firm Responses Are Now Belong Us...

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran's firebrand president warned on Monday that his country would oppose an "appropriate and firm response" to any U.N. sanction over its nuclear program.

"Efforts by the big powers will only incite anger and hatred," Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told a large crowd on the outskirts of Tehran. "The Iranian nation will respond to restrictive activities with an appropriate and firm response," he said without elaborating.

The hardline Iranian president gave his speech as key United Nations Security Council members were deliberating a draft European resolution that would impose sanctions on Iran over its disputed nuclear program.

Time To Check Back In On The Religion Of Peace...

"According to the Assyrian website ankawa.com, a 14 year old Christian Assyrian boy, Ayad Tariq, from Baqouba, Iraq was decapitated at his work place on October 21.

Ayad Tariq was working his 12 hour shift, maintaining an electric generator, when a group of disguised Muslim insurgents walked in at the beginning of his shift shortly after 6 a.m. and asked him for his ID.

According to another employee who witnessed the events, and who hid when he saw the insurgents approach, the insurgents questioned Ayad after seeing that his ID stated "Christian", asking if he was truly a "Christian sinner." Ayad replied "yes, I am Christian but I am not a sinner." The insurgents quickly said this is a "dirty Christian sinner!" Then they proceeded to each hold one limb, shouting "Allahu akbar! Allahu akbar!" while beheading the boy."

While awaiting word from CAIR condeming such a monstrous atrocity upon humanity, I think I'll go knit an afghan for each member of the National Football League. Then start working on that yellow line I've been meaning to paint in the road between New York And Los Angeles.

Once again now, this time with vigor; there ARE no peaceful moslems. There are the killers, those who provide them with the logistics to do the killing, and those that by their silence encourage and condone such outrages.

Thanks to the Anti's @ LGF.

Hussein Out-Earns RodHam...


WASHINGTON - Round 1 of the much-hyped potential title fight between Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination goes to Obama.

The charismatic rising star has invested more cash than Clinton this year to build up political chits around the country - even though she's sitting on a $... more >

Can anyone tell me why this no-nothing, do-nothing, say-nothing catastrophe is the ONLY recourse for the Dems over Hillary?

Sure, I understand that neither of them have a platform, ANY platform, but isn't there enough time for a genuine patriot to step forward? And please now; the story goes on to say how "photogenic" Obama is, and sweet christ on a crutch but the man is ugly as sin.

Does their blindness seep over to things other than politics? Guess so.

Mainstream America votes for a guy who admits to using marijuana and snorting cocaine? Not in this dimension.

Read 'Em And Weep

"The New York Post, founded by Alexander Hamilton on November 16, 1801, is the oldest continuously published daily newspaper in the United States."

And the only major dead tree medium that demonstrably increased it's circulation over the last 6 months. Oh yeah, the Daily Snooze was up 1% because the Sports section remains one of it's strengths. Most English-speaking NY'ers read the Times for the ads and where-to-go stories (wine, women and song, etc), and of course the "culture". The down and dirty rags are the Post and News, with the News focusing on the liberal viewpoint and the Post featuring conservative columnists. It isn't surprising at all that the Wall Street Journal took a bit of a hit. Their political news can be found online and let's face it, weak-kneed RINO's are a dime a dozen.

And While The Brits Weep About Warming...The French Show Them What Burning Is All About

The French government is holding an emergency meeting on transport security after youths set a bus ablaze on Saturday, critically injuring a woman.

"The attack in the southern city of Marseille left 26-year-old Mama Galledou from Senegal with burns to nearly 70% of her body.

Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin appealed for witnesses to the attack.

Masked youths have set several buses ablaze, a year after riots by gangs mainly of African and Arab origin.

Both Mr de Villepin and Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy pledged that the Marseille perpetrators would be tracked down and punished. About 200 extra police were deployed in the city.

A group of teenagers reportedly forced open the doors of the vehicle and threw an inflammable liquid inside before fleeing.

About 200 vehicles were set alight in incidents around the country on Saturday, and nearly 50 people were arrested."

YOUTHS. Again with the "youths". MOSLEMS. Can anyone just say moslems and be done with it?

200 buses torched a year after the sandfleas burned thousands of cars and the French still haven't learned a lesson. The problem isn't going away until one of two things happen. Europe formally surrenders or begins tossing the offenders out.

Nothing else stands a snowball's chance in hell of working. They can't even force themselves to call them islamic terrorists for chrissake, so I guess it's surrender time once again.

Al Gore Is Coming, Al Gore Is Coming...

"Britain is to send the author of today's landmark review on global warming to try to win American hearts and minds to the urgent cause of cutting carbon emissions - as it emerged yesterday that the government has already signed up former US vice-president Al Gore to advise on the environment."

Gore in the UK drops the national IQ average a ton just by debarking at Heathrow. Since it elevates ours I shouldn't be complaining, but with all of the genuine problems facing Great Britain, bringing in Weird Al shows how deep the pols are burying their heads in the sand.

Being overrun by moslems? No worries. Economy gone to shit? Not a problem. The Norks have nukes, the Iranians want some too, the entire planet is going to hell in a handbasket while the world pays attention to this idiot screaming how the sky is falling.

And can you even begin to imagine what this shyster is being paid for such a gig?

Yugoslavian Model 70 in 32 ACP...

Had the recent pleasure of firing a dead ringer for the gun in this picture, and was so favorably impressed it's on my wish list. Clunky, and heavy for it's caliber...I'd say maybe 30 ounces fully loaded, but the gun was accurate, lent the impression that it'd fire until the crack of doom, and the recoil from fairly hot fmj's was non-existent. I'm not a slavering devotee of the Mak-type pistols, but this particular Yugo 70 strikes my fancy to a fair thee well, and sure, the 32 cal is a mousegun but the one I shot was accurate as all hell up to 50' and it's not like it'd be my primary CCW or grizzly-tamer. I'm no James Bond, but keeping the thing on target was a snap, and 8 + 1 rounds of modern hollowpoints is really gonna sting.

The right holster, and it'd be one helluva classy combo.

Cancer Gene Codes Cracked...

US scientists have cracked the entire genetic code of breast and colon cancers, offering new treatment hopes.

"The genetic map shows that nearly 200 mutated genes, most previously unknown, help tumours emerge, grow and spread.

The discovery could also lead to better ways to diagnose cancer in its early, most treatable stages, and personalised treatments, Science magazine reports.

The Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center says the findings suggest cancer is more complex than experts had believed.

Distinct differences

The mutated genes in breast and colon cancers were almost completely distinct, suggesting very different pathways for the development of each of these cancer types.

Each individual tumour appeared to have a different genetic blueprint, which could explain why cancers can behave very differently from person to person, the scientists said.

"No two patients are identical," co-author Dr Victor Velculescu explained."

Since this is a Brit article, it's difficult to determine precisely how much of the story is a mere misinterpretation of the facts. OR it could simply be nothing more than clumsy writing. The premise is that faulty genes are the cause of cancers, and I find it hard to believe that most of the human race has such defective DNA. I could of course spend the next several days googling until I derived a shred of comprehension, but "faulty" just seems to be the wrong way to classify the process.

Whatever, this is quite excellent news in the battle against cancer, and it's good to know that science continues to evolve.

Save This Picture...

For the time when Bill stumps the country scrounging up votes for Hillary.

It'll be good to see the two of them in action, as cartoonists and photo-editors will have the time of their lives.

As for me, I plan on having the thing blown up to poster-size and planted in the front lawn.

Remington's 2007 Conservation Gun Of The Year...

Yes. Bowl me off my pins with a feather duster. A New York City newspaper mentioning, of all things, a firearm, and not weeping or teeth gnashing.

October 29, 2006 -- "UPLAND bird hunt ers and collectors have a rare oppor tunity to purchase what may become a highly-sought-after shotgun and, at the same time, help restore critical grouse and woodcock habitat.

In partnership with the Ruffed Grouse Society (RGS), Remington has unveil its 2007 Conservation Gun of the Year, the Premier Over & Under RGS in 20-gauge.

This limited-production, collectible offering will be available for one year only. During this time, Remington will donate a portion from each sale of this special-edition shotgun to RGS in support of its long-standing efforts to restore and maintain habitat for ruffed grouse, American woodcock, songbirds and other forest wildlife.

Blogger Boogered Yet Again

It's been 2 days now. Blogger fussing with this or that, and edits made nearly 11 hours ago have not surfaced so I'll probably say the hell with more blogging today. Am tempted to switch to the new Beta Blogger version, but saw something nasty about it that I cannot remember from where.

Email For A Sunday Afternoon

"Not everyone (read hardly anyone) should apply tactics if they can dial 911 to solve their problem."

Clint Smith. Guns Magazine, October, 2005.

In clearing up my email I've decided on posting some of the more interesting questions regarding firearms, and was hit smack in the kisser with full frontal dread when I saw the name of Clint Smith. Mr. Smith, as I've said before right here on these pages, runs Thunder Ranch. Thunder Ranch is where you go when you have a lot of money to burn and the time to spend a few days being run around various firing ranges. If people did not believe this was necessary, or if they felt that their level of firearm proficiency was good enough, there would not be a Thunder Ranch. It is Clint's job, therefore, to tell the American public to let the police handle most situations because, after all, they are incapable of doing it themselves. Forget the fact that citizens stop more crimes than the police, Smith wants YOU, and you ain't a comin' unless he scares you into it.

PS: Thunder Ranch is where FORG (Fat Old Retired Guy) goes to learn how to juggle magazines then report upon it at Box O' Truth. I really don't have to say anything else, now do I.

Fan Mail From Some Flounder

"I don't know why anyone would like a Glock 27 just because they have a bigger one of the 40 calibers and want a kid brogther to go along. I honestly cannot think of a situaiton where I'd have to use my G-23 magazine in a G-27...to say nothing of what it might does to a tactical reload..."

Then you don't get-it, and never will. Because of, in spite of, or whatever shoe fits, you are LE and obviously don't spend a lot of time at a range where swapping out then reloading magazines is a major pain in the ass. I've 10 mags for the carry G-27, this out of the 16 or so others I've tried and found wanting. 4 of them are G-22 maximum capacity magazines, and 15 rounds each makes it more pleasant to practice. For the college graduates, 15 rounds is 5 more than the 10 a standard issue G-27 magazine can hold, so this means one may shoot 5 more times before dumping then feeding. Also, lots of people carry a 23 or 22 mag as a spare when they CCW, so many in fact that there are sleeves being sold to better accomodate the longer magazines when used in the shorter G-27.

For many, the object of the whole endeavor is to become as proficient as humanly possible with one's carry piece. If I do not squeeze off 250-300 rounds a week from the sub-compact Glock, there's this back-of-the-neck tingle that starts to drive me even crazier than normal. There is no such a thing as too much practice. No one has every plopped down on their sofa after a raging gun battle and bemoaned that they had too much practice. Sure, it does become so boring that you find yourself shooting smiley faces into the target, and therein lies a rub.

It's hard. It's expensive. It's tiring. It's a pain in the ass to load mags, load more mags, then clean everything up afterwards. NOT doing so is why, day after day, we hear of the cop who cranked out 15 and only managed to sting the bad guy once in the pinky. Shooting is damned hard to do when the adrenaline takes over. Shooting accurately even more so. The cure is to make it as close to an autonomic response as can be done.

When training for the worst case scenario, familiarity does not breed contempt. Use or do not use a higher capacity magazine. The choice belongs to the individual. But don't say that just because YOU see no need, there is not one. I respect your occupation, as we all should, but please now. The very last person to offer firearm instruction is the average LE. Just as the last person to offer bullet recommendations happens to be the average military man. Again, opinion is fine and more power to ya. But you just don't get it.

And as far as "tactical reload", I'll say this about that and call it a day. Practicing something that has never been shown to be of any value in saving your life is a waste of your finite training time. The one thing that we know for sure ALWAYS works is to draw a firearm and fire it with as much accuracy as possible into an assailant. This does not address cover and/or concealment but that's for another time. Trust me, the vast majority of people fumble enough and fumbling at the wrong time will get you killed. So stop listening to Box O' Truth and go shoot.

Now drop and give me 20. Or 10 if you don't have the capacity.

Rock Salt Shotgun Shells

"...Box of Truth tested dum-dum bullets and rock salt shot from a shotgun..."

"Sodium chloride is sold in several different particle sizes (gradation) and forms, depending on the intended end use. Discrete crystals can be seen in rock salt used for deicing. Fine granules are typical of table salt and even finer popcorn salt. Kosher salt, pickling salt and ice cream salt are slightly coarser. Small compressed pellets are used in water softeners and large salt blocks are used as salt licks for livestock. When viewed under strong magnification, all sodium chloride is crystalline. Very large cubic crystals, of two, three or more inches in size, can be seen in some salt mines. They are transparent and cleave into perfect cubes when struck with a hard object."

The idiot used ice cream salt. There are far more nasty versions to load up with, but rock salt shells are for the bang and boom effect, and not much else. The whole premise behind such a load is to deliver a warning rather than a deadly attack, so as usual, he misses the point by a country mile in trying to do the impossible. Only Hollywood offerings suggest otherwise, and anyone over the age of 9 and with something of a familiarity with firearms would know this. Remember, Box is run by, and for, the lowest common denominator. It's what gets the rubes a' clickin' and coming back for more.

In his defense, he stipulates that he already knew all of the above, but dashes that by conducting the test to begin with rather than moving on to something interesting and valuable to the everyday shooter. This offering, at least, doesn't rely upon shoddy backyard "testing" to make a recommendation that would in turn cause someone great pain and suffering in relationship to their health and dental record.

Every one of those little blue balls is a thought about something that needs to be

Good thing a man's brain requires only two balls.

NRA Grassroots Alert


In 11 days we will go to the polls to elect all 435 members of the U.S. House of Representatives, 33 U.S. Senators, 36 governors, and thousands of state and local officials.

Other than voting on Election Day (or voting early or via absentee ballot), what more should gun owners be doing? The answer is very simple--volunteering to work on pro-gun candidates' campaigns to turn out supportive voters on Election Day, November 7.

While we know NRA members and gun owners are reliable voters, the same can't be said for others. With that said, our pro-gun candidates are going to have to rely on gun owners' activism to ensure that voters who support them are contacted and actually go and vote on November 7. Voting on Election Day is the ultimate form of volunteerism. But turning out supportive voters won't happen by accident. Here are some activities with which you can assist that can spell the difference between victory and defeat on Election Day:

YARD SIGNS: The key to placing yard signs is location, location, location. Put signs where large numbers of people will see them, but out of right of ways. Ask fellow firearm owners who have property that would make a good sign location to post a sign, and make sure the "natural resources of the pro-gun community" (gun shows, gun shops, shooting ranges, and gun and hunting clubs) have signs prominently displayed. Don't put signs on private property without permission, and don't tamper with the opposition's signs! And, of course, make sure you have a pro-gun candidate's sign in your yard or on your property!

LITERATURE DROPS: Literature drops are an extremely effective way for pro-freedom candidates to get their message regarding pro-freedom candidates. Again, take advantage of the "natural resources" of the pro-gun community. Gun shows are the best venue to conduct a literature drop. Check with the show promoter to set up a literature table or share one with a fellow NRA member or pro-gun supporter. Or, better yet, hand out pro-gun candidates' literature to all attendees as they enter the show. If distributing literature in neighborhoods, never put materials in a mailbox! Remember, the goal of this activity isn't to debate with anti-gun voters, but rather, to distribute as much material to as many potential voters as possible!

BUMPER STICKERS: Make sure every vehicle you own has a pro-gun candidate's (and/or NRA) bumper sticker on it. Then, work to ensure the vehicles of your friends and fellow firearm owners are proudly displaying a sticker(s) as well! ILA Grassroots has limited quantities of candidate stickers for the following states: AZ, FL, GA, MN, MS, & TX, as well as "I'm the NRA and I Vote" bumper stickers. If you need additional stickers, please contact the Grassroots Division at (800) 392-VOTE (8683).

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: Please submit at least one letter to the editor of your local newspaper in support of a pro-gun candidate between now and Election Day. Consult your paper's deadlines, as some papers stop accepting political letters to the editor on a certain date prior to the election. You can find media contact information by visiting our homepage--www.NRAILA.org -- and clicking the "Take Action" icon, and then the "Write The Media" link. Your goal in writing should be to ensure that pro-gun candidates are receiving positive media in these final days leading up to November 7.

GET OUT THE VOTE & ELECTION DAY ACTIVITIES: Now that there are less than two weeks left in the campaign season, candidates are focusing their efforts on Get Out The Vote (GOTV) projects and laying the final groundwork for a barrage of Election Day activities. This requires assistance contacting voters by phone, walking precincts, volunteering to drive pro-gun voters to the polls, and putting up signs and handing out literature at polling locations on Election Day.

VOTE FOR PRO-GUN CANDIDATES FOR OFFICE ON NOVEMBER 7!: The ultimate act of volunteerism, of course, is casting your ballot on Election Day. Please be sure you vote on Tuesday, November 7, and urge your family, friends, and fellow firearm owners to do the same. Remember, too, that in many states you can vote early, prior to November 7. Exercising this option not only ensures that your vote will be "banked," but that you will have free time on Election Day to help with the aforementioned activities! With this many races tight as a tick, we cannot take even a single pro-gun vote for granted! For candidate information, to assist you when voting, refer to your November NRA magazine, which contains NRA-PVF's Candidate Endorsements, or visit www.NRAPVF.org.

Another way to get involved with these, and other, similar activities in your area is to contact your NRA-ILA Election Volunteer Coordinator (EVC), who is a local NRA member spearheading our pro-gun volunteer campaign efforts. To locate your EVC, please visit NRA's websites (www.NRAILA.org or www.NRAPVF.org) or contact the ILA Grassroots Division at (800) 392-VOTE (8683).

Finally, you can contact pro-gun candidates' local campaign offices directly. By visiting the "Elections" section of www.NRAPVF.org you'll find that many of the pro-gun candidates have a hyperlink that you can click to go directly to their website to find their contact information.

With only 11 short days left until Election Day, if you can spare literally just a few hours of your time with these Get Out The Vote efforts, it can and will make a difference! If a few hours of your time over the next 11 days isn't worth protecting our Second Amendment rights for our children and grandchildren, what is?

Thank you for all you have done to date to protect our freedom, and all you will continue to do until the polls close on Tuesday, November 7. On to Victory!


Election Day, November 7, is now less than two weeks away! For up-to-the-minute campaign information, and to see what more you can do to help elect pro-Second Amendment candidates to office, NRA members are strongly encouraged to visit the NRA-Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) website, www.NRAPVF.org. This official NRA campaign site will serve as your one-stop campaign reference guide this election season. The site is loaded with all of the critical information you'll need to make informed decisions on Election Day, November 7. Included on the site are news stories, articles from NRA's magazines, NRA-PVF press releases, and a complete listing of NRA-PVF candidate grades and endorsements!

In addition to all of the late-breaking campaign news, candidate grades and endorsements, EVC contact information, and firearm issue background information, you will also find our multimedia section-- www.nrapvf.org/Multimedia/Default.aspx -- that houses easy-to-access ads that are perfectly suited for distribution among your fellow NRA Members!

Early and absentee voting is currently underway in several states. If you are voting early or by absentee ballot, please be sure to visit www.NRAPVF.org before casting your ballot.

With so few days between now and Election Day, November 7, please be sure that you leave no stone unturned and, on November 7, join us on "Freedom's Frontline" and "Vote Freedom First"!

In Memoriam: Clint Gertson

Many fine young men have given their lives in the fight against the moslem menace. I rarely single out an individual but a friend asked, and to learn more you can click on over to The Cook Shack.

Question For A Saturday Afternoon

When has the world NOT been riven by religious war? That'd be a toughie, because since the beginning of recorded history that's what all the talk has been about. The oldest stories, some of the them originating way before the advent of writing as a form of communication, are about three things.

1. Gods.

2. The antithesis of gods, aka devils or monsters.

3. Killing unbelievers.

Heroes arose to battle demons as well as the unfaithful. Gods and Demigods roamed the earth creating all sorts of havoc, and it predates copycat moslem and Christian faiths, because the Jews were compiling the precise percentage of spoils...camels, silks, virgins, etc, to placate their new boss of all bosses, the one God...and what a concept, way before islam came along to up the virgin ante or Christianity decided cannibalism would be cool to feature at Sunday services.

I've often asked when we'll be rid of the desire to wage war based upon the invisible beliefs of another, but most social scientists say probably never, and certainly not anytime soon. 90% of what children learn stays with them throughout their lives, be it heterosexuality or the worship of super beings, and when the formative years are chockerblock with deities the remainder of time spent on the green side of the grass is exhausted in the effort to get closer to the heavens.

The moslems, as moslems are apt to do, are at it again, and while I personally could care less what belief system causes an otherwise intelligent individual to dismiss reality in favor of fairy tale, the moslems are shoving it down our collective throats so every now and again I return to examine what started it all. We're all of us hotwired (okay, Paris Hilton and Teddy Kennedy notwithstanding) to find the answer, learn the truth, understand how things tick, and joining a heavenly choir is certainly easier than getting that doctorate in physics so most rely upon religion for their daily dose of problem solving. And just as there can be but one law(s) of gravity, there can be but one God. To suggest anything else is heresy. In the scientific community, heretics are laughed at then told to go Asia, or maybe even France, for funding. In the religious community, heresy remains punishable by death.

That sucks. I've always believed in the axiom stating that one is either part of the solution or part of the problem. And with the vast, overwhelming majority of us being part of the problem, I'm afraid the eggheads are correct. Going to hell in a handbasket, and we've greased our own skids.

"Know anything about Delta force...?"

No. Hadn't even heard of it. What I do know is that one of the first things a newly elected President does is sign pardons for Delta Force members. Everything is filled in but the date. By law, they enjoy immunity from prosecution as long as a direct order was issued, ordering them to accomplish... whatever. For example, If the President asked Delta to shoot the Vice President in Macy's window, not only would they do so without blinking an eye, they could not be prosecuted. But...liberals and other weepy creatures are infamous for digging up loopholes or simply harassing patriotic Americans, so Presidential Pardons await such an event just in case. Of the 1000 Delta Force members, approximately 250 are wet-workers with the remaining number available for recon and logistics. Training is forever ongoing, as members die and retire, so new blood is always ready to step in.

I've never had any personal complaints with different sized/shaped handguns, and that's because in the service one shoots what one is given and does the best one can.

Basically, I never learned the fine art of whining. I of course have preferences, and were it merely for "feel", I'd carry and use the Glock 21 over the Glock 23 any day of the week.

But reality rearing it's ugly head has led me to believe that the ballistics obtainable from the 23 slightly surpasses the 21, so for CCW* I look to the 23 or 27, particularly during the hot Florida summers where smaller means better.

The Glock 21 rewards me with a tactile sensation that simply says, "hold me, shoot me." As if my hand were used as the template. Add that to the fact, not opinion, mind you, but fact, that aside from a specialized 1911, the G-21 is the world's best service/defense pistol in 45 caliber. There's a reason IPSC shooters favor 1911's and Glocks above all others, and Sevigny and Latham duels are legendary. Sevigny and his Glock's edge out Latham and his 1911's, but that is most probably due to the fact that Sevigny is slightly, ever so slightly, the better shooter.

Stock from the box PLUS a barrel and trigger upgrade means you've just bought a gun that for $750-$800 will kick as much competitive ass as your skill allows. But, will an $800 Glock beat a $3000 1911? No. Close, but no cigar. The add-ons for Glock just haven't arrived, but for 99.99% of the shooting public it is a meaningless comparison. You'd have to Ransom both guns to see the difference.

Ammunition improvements aside, I repeat the assertion that the G-23 is the best combat handgun for the money.

Fancy ass 1911's are what you show your friends. Dead-on reliable Glocks are what you show your enemies.

*In Florida, concealed means "carrying on or about a person in such a manner as to conceal the firearm from the ordinary sight of another person." Leave it to lawyers to insist that a word can define itself. What is has come to mean though, is fairly simple. If someone else cannot determine you are carrying a gun, the gun is concealed. Not so in pansy ass states such as Texas, where a bulge can send you to jail.

Women's Lib As Told By: Australian Islamic Honcho Boss Man, Sheikh Taj Din Al Hilaly

“If you get a kilo of meat, and you don’t put it in the fridge or in the pot or in the kitchen but you leave it on a plate in the backyard, and then you have a fight with the neighbour because his cats eat the meat, you’re crazy. Isn’t this true?”

“If you take uncovered meat and put it on the street, on the pavement, in a garden, in a park, or in the backyard, without a cover and the cats eat it, then whose fault will it be, the cats, or the uncovered meat’s? The uncovered meat is the disaster. If the meat was covered the cats wouldn’t roam around it. If the meat is inside the fridge, they won’t get it.”

“If the woman is in her boudoir, in her house and if she’s wearing the veil and if she shows modesty, disasters don’t happen.”

“Satan sees women as half his soldiers. You’re my messenger in necessity, Satan tells women you‘re my weapon to bring down any stubborn man. There are men that I fail with. But you’re the best of my weapons.”

“...The woman was behind Satan playing a role when she disobeyed God and went out all dolled up and unveiled and made of herself palatable food that rakes and perverts would race for. She was the reason behind this sin taking place.”

Does it NOT amaze you that neither Madonna, nor ANY of the harridans caterwauling their way through life, have denounced such teachings? This full-frontal-idiot condones rape and violence against women, something akin to say, Alabama of the early '50's, because after all, it's their own fault, and our liberals whistle their way past the graveyard.

She asked for it. She deserved it. Isn't the man's fault. Nancy? Hillary? Barbara? ANYBODY?

NYPD Cop Punches The Ticket Of Oxygen-Thief

"An off-duty NYPD sergeant trying to stop a cold-blooded execution on a Brooklyn street last night shot a 17-year-old gunman dead after the teen fired two slugs into him, police said.

Bleeding from the bullet wounds, Sgt. James Rector fired 11 rounds and mortally wounded Eric Hines as the teen was still trying to pull the trigger of his handgun, police and witnesses said.

Rector, a 34-year-old father of two, was taken to Bellevue Hospital, where he was in stable condition with bullet wounds in the left ankle and buttocks.

Mayor Bloomberg hailed Rector as a hero, saying, "Despite already being hit, he displayed incredible clarity of mind and coolness literally under fire that few of us could hope to muster."

The wild shootout occurred about 7:30 p.m. at the Walt Whitman Houses in Fort Greene, where Rector, a decorated 11-year veteran of the force, supervises a recruitment center.

Investigators said Rector had just finished his tour and was headed home when he heard shouting and gunfire coming from outside 14 Auburn Place.

"I saw people running, then I heard them yelling, 'They shooting! They shooting!' " said witness Charles Davis, 16.

Rector ran toward the violence and found an unidentified 26-year-old man on his knees begging for his life, police said. Hines was holding his .40-caliber gun at the man's head, apparently ready to fire, police said.

Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Rector identified himself as a cop and told Hines to freeze - only to have the teen wheel around, shoot and hit him twice.

The first bullet hit Rector's ankle and spun him around. The second hit him in the buttocks.

But Rector somehow steadied himself and nearly emptied his 9-mm. handgun, hitting Hines in the chest and leg.

Amid the chaos, a young boy grabbed Hines' gun and ran with it into 14 Auburn Place, police said.

When heavily armed cops entered the building, an ammo clip and packets of crack cocaine were tossed from a window, police said. Cops later led four men and a woman out of the building in handcuffs.

Investigators said they also found cocaine and marijuana in Hines' pockets.

The 26-year-old man who had been held at gunpoint by Hines was taken to Lutheran Medical Center, where he was in stable condition with a leg wound.

Detectives were questioning him and hunting for another unidentified man who ran to a car during the shootout and sped off. The car was found abandoned in Queens last night.

Hines' father, Eric Pitt, 38, a construction worker, said his son had just left his grandmother's apartment in the housing project "when some guys jumped out of a black car and started arguing with him. That's when the bullets started to fly."

"They killed my little man, my baby," Pitt said. "I don't even know who shot him. Nobody will tell me anything."

But a neighborhood resident said he believes the shooting was drug-related.

"One guy was from Walt Whitman, and the other was from the Ingersoll Houses" across the street, the resident said. "One carries a gun, the other carries a gun, both of them have a beef and this is what happens."

Where does one begin...

Getting shot in the ankle does not spin one around. Anyone who's been in a gunfight knows what really went down. The officer did not have a round in the chamber, realized this, turned for cover and/or concealment in order to jack one into the pipe, was hit in the ass then turned back and managed, somehow, to crank out 11 and hit the bad guy twice. A white officer shoots at a black man nearly a dozen times and the headline is quite different, by the way. You can look it up by googling Amado Dialo.

And please now; you expect me to believe that both the shooter and the man he was going to execute had guns? In NYC. Where it is against the law?

Baloney. The gun laws make that a virtual impossibility.

Quick Shock II: And The Message Is Clear

Messenger Spotlight On Ohio

Another bastion of liberalism, where citizens recently snuck a concealed carry law past snoozing moonbats. Now, all of you liberals bear with me because I'm going to feature something called STATISTICS.

The Justice Department tells us, that on average close to 200,000 battered women successfully use guns to protect themselves each year.

Battered women move around a lot, but more times than not they remain in the same state. Family, and all that. To liberals, family is another incomprehensible word, but trust me on this one, lots of folks think it is important.

So these unfortunate girls and women of Ohio, thousands of them, remain in Ohio after escaping a violent husband, and in order to protect themselves, obtain a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The violent husband searches high and low but to no avail. He cannot locate and teach the bitch a new lesson she'll never forget.

Enter the liberal media. You know, the one forever telling us that it is on the side of women. And children. Let's not forget the children, because oft times they suffer more than being made to bear witness, and are battered and killed as well.

BUT...the gals went and done a bad, bad, thing. They got a gun. Legally, no less. In Ohio, this means a license and a license means you are required to list your current address. So to punish them for transgressions against the liberal agenda, the Ohio media publishes the names and addresses of ALL concealed weapon licensees.

Having a hard time finding the bitch? Check with the media. Chances are, her or someone sharing her maiden name has obtained a concealed carry permit.

Other states allowed the media access to these addresses as well, but soon learned the terrible lesson and began shielding law abiding citizens from the ravages of the press. The same press that pushes the "Privacy Clause" of the Constitution down our throats but gleefully points an enraged spouse or boyfriend to the new home of a woman trying to forever escape his wrath.

Ohio liberals are really, really pissed about this concealed weapons deal. Get one, and they'll tell him where you live.

Quick Shock: The Medium Is The Message

"Our prisons are overflowing with gang members, gangsta rappers are daily being shot dead in the streets, the media continues to mindlessly pander to a hateful, violent and criminal gang culture that lays us all low . . .

. . . and on a Sunday night Fox opens Game 2 of the World Series with a partial number by Eminem and 50 Cent, a number that in full includes unprintable vulgarities, glorified references to weapons and shootouts, the word "nigga" and the requisite designation of women as "bitches."

Two weeks earlier, Fox fired Steve Lyons for a perceived ethnic crack."

"Is this true...found it at Buffaloe Bore web sight?"

"Glock happens to chamber their 40 S&W pistols without a fully supported chamber and both of those above safety notices are likely aimed at Glock. I know of no other 40 S&W handguns being sold in the US that don’t have fully supported chambers. If you really want to shoot our 40S&W ammo in your Glock, have an after market barrel that uses a supported chamber, dropped into it."

No. It is not true. In any way, shape, or form. There is not a fully supported chamber in existance with regards to off-the-shelf handguns. Specialty race-guns sometimes have them because feeding is not a problem for the bullet the gun likes the best is the one always used, as well as the simple fact that such weapons are used for games and not life and death situations.

It is true that years ago Glock barrels featured LESS chamber support. This was to assure the feed of pretty much any type cartridge in existance. Then hand-loaders started cranking up their rounds, and even law enforcement got its hands on ammunition that was unsuitable for ANY gun, so Glock redesigned the barrels. Not that there was anything truly wrong with the older .40 cals, but enough was enough. Too many chairborne commando's spreading lies and innuendo.

The 22's, 23's, and 27's manufactured after 1999 or thereabouts, are as supported as any combat/defense gun on the market today. The downside to this is that they will not feed, fire, and fling with the same aplomb as the older barrels, but any modern factory ammuntion should work just fine.

As is the case with any recommendation regarding firearms, test, test, then test. One should shoot 100 rounds or so of the same bullet from the same magazines in the same gun that is to be used for self defense. The ones that work without a hitch and/or make the more accurate, dastardly holes in innocent paper are the ones to use for shit-hit-the-fan time.

Buffalo Bore is run by folks who do not like Glocks. There is simply no other way to explain such absolute bullshit, for ammunition "experts" simply cannot be that dumb.

Now drop and give me 20 for your atrocious spelling.

Feisty Gal Brains Robber Who Then Steals Policeman's Cell Phone...

Woman Wallops Intruder With Cooking Pot

MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - "A woman watching television in her nightgown raced from her bedroom and attacked a man with a cooking pot after he stole golf clubs from her porch, police said. Sabrena Davis said she first grabbed a knife after a neighbor yelled to tell her that a man had taken the clubs, but

then decided to instead attack him with a 10-inch cooking pot.

"I started beating him with it. He asked for it," she said.

Davis' attack slowed Timothy A. Simison, 27, until police arrested him outside her home Tuesday morning shortly after she had whacked him in the head and shoulders with the pot.

The Hartford City man, who was being held without bond Wednesday at the Delaware County Jail, faces preliminary charges of attempted burglary and theft.

Police said Simison was on a crack cocaine binge when he tried burglarizing the two-story house where Davis, 36, lives with her brother, Maurice Garrett.

A neighbor who noticed Simison on the enclosed front porch where Garrett keeps tool boxes, tackle boxes and golf clubs cornered Simison on the porch and yelled to Davis, who ran downstairs and attacked with the pot.

Simison tried to escape custody several times, including working his handcuffed hands from behind his back to his front by passing them under his feet, said Muncie police Lt. Al Williams.

When police searched Simison before placing him in a holding cell at city hall, they found a cell phone in one of his socks belonging to one of the officers who had transported him.

"Talk about a klepto. If you sit back and look at this, it's almost comical," Williams said."

Yes. Your police department is comical, Lieutenant. Thank heavens for citizens defending themselves, or your collection of Barney Fife wannabees would be forced to protect and defend. All by their lonesome. Scary.

Stop The ACLU Blogburst Thursday

Jay over at STOP adds his 2 cents to the New Jersey gay marriage nonsense:

"Yesterday I reported on the judicial activism of the New Jersey Court in mandating gay marriage in all but name. I stated that the decision was a mixed bag but it opened many doors we should be aware of. I also stated that while the ACLU were involved in the lawsuit I wasn’t sure exactly what their reaction would be. I am wondering no more. The ACLU are cheering!

The American Civil Liberties Union today cheered a unanimous decision by the New Jersey Supreme Court holding that it is unconstitutional for the state to bar same-sex couples from the hundreds of family protections the state provides through marriage. The court referred the matter to the state legislature, which has 180 days to either amend existing marriage laws or create some other system to give same-sex couples the same marriage protections under the law.

“Today’s court decision is a giant step toward ending the unfairness that same-sex couples face in marriage,” said Matt Coles, Director of the ACLU Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Project. “Same-sex couples fall in love, make commitments and build families just like opposite-sex couples. And as the court ruled today, same-sex couples shouldn’t be denied the important family protections that come with marriage. We now call on the New Jersey legislature to make sure that same-sex couples are not denied the dignity that comes only through marriage.”

Public support for marriage for same-sex couples in New Jersey is strong and growing. New Jersey favors marriage for lesbian and gay couples 56 to 39 percent, according to a Garden State Equality-Zogby poll of New Jersey voters surveyed earlier this year.

Why indeed didn't the state simply place same-sex marriage on a ballot and have the good sheeple of Jersey vote for it, rather than tossing it over to the liberal courts? And not for a moment do I believe the Zogby poll results.


"...On "60 Minutes" last Sunday night, aspiring House speaker Nancy Pelosi denounced the war in Iraq as not "part of the war on terror." The war on terror, she said "is the war in Afghanistan."

So that's it. The one part of the war on terror — or "so-called war on terror," as New York Times so-called columnist Bob Herbert calls it — Democrats even pretend to support is the war in Afghanistan.

Immediately after the attacks of 9/11, Democrats had no choice but to vote in favor of that war — of any war. (Save one member of Congress — guess which party? Answer: Rep. Barbara Lee, Democrat, of California.)

If Bush had gone to war with Iraq immediately after 9/11 and waited to attack Afghanistan, Democrats would now be pretending to support the Iraq war while pointlessly carping about Afghanistan. Afghanistan didn't attack us on 9/11! The Taliban didn't attack us! What's our exit strategy? How do you define "victory" in Afghanistan, anyway? It's a quagmire — aahhhhh!

The beauty of Democrats' pretending to be hawks on Afghanistan is that most people can't remember what liberals said five minutes after they said it, much less five years later.

In fact, during the brief five weeks it took American forces to take Kabul and send the Taliban scurrying, liberals were not the flag-waving patriots they would have us believe.

In October 2001, Sen. Joe Biden gave a speech before the Council on Foreign Relations saying that America's air war in Afghanistan made the United States look like "this high-tech bully that thinks from the air we can do whatever we want to do."

Four weeks before U.S. troops completely vanquished the Taliban, Kim Jong Il's pal, New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson, said on CNN's "Capital Gang" that the Taliban would not soon be toppled. He cited his experience with the Taliban, saying: "I think they can hold on for a while. They were very resilient."

Howard Dean joined Michael Moore in arguing that Osama bin Laden was innocent until proved guilty.

Except for a few idiots like Biden, Richardson and Dean, most politicians — who have to run for election — duly voted in favor of the war in Afghanistan and let their mouthpieces in the media bash it for them. (Remember: A lot of them voted for war in Iraq, too.)

Democrats who would not have to face voters — we call them "reporters" — were calling Afghanistan a "quagmire" approximately six minutes after we invaded.

Thomas Ricks, the Washington Post reporter who currently has a book out saying the war in Iraq is not succeeding, also said the war in Afghanistan was not succeeding.

On Oct. 27, 2001, Ricks said this about Afghanistan — not Iraq: "Although there is little evidence — yet — that the U.S. approach is succeeding, officials at the Pentagon and the White House said yesterday that they are sticking with their original strategy."

Our boys had taken Kabul before Ricks' article hit the recycling bin.

The media gave us gleeful reports on friendly fire incidents in Afghanistan, incessant body counts, numbers of civilian dead and polls showing that the rest of world hated us. Christiane Amanpour reported on CNN in February 2002 that "77 percent of those (Muslims) interviewed said the U.S. war in Afghanistan was morally unjustifiable." The Muslim world hates us — because of the war Democrats claim to support.

In an Oct. 27, 2001, column titled "How to Lose a War," New York Times columnist Frank Rich wrote that the Taliban "are proving Viet Cong-like in their intractability." He stated categorically that "we're losing that battle for Afghan hearts and minds" — proving Rich to be as competent a military analyst as any longtime New York Times theater critic could reasonably be expected to be.

Say, when is the Times going to hire generals to review the latest Broadway offerings? I think more people would like to read Tommy Franks' review of "Rent" than Frank Rich's review of a war.

Times columnist Maureen Dowd, more macho than Rich, asked: "Are we quagmiring ourselves again?" Apparently so. She cited Rear Adm. John Stufflebeem's denial that we were getting bogged down in Afghanistan as "a sure sign we're getting bogged down."

In October 2001, on ABC News' "World News Tonight," anchor Peter Jennings asked Gen. Pervez Musharraf of Pakistan: "Do you believe that the United States is possibly facing a quagmire in Afghanistan?"

The first time liberals had a kind word for the war in Afghanistan was when they needed to pretend to support some war in order to attack the war in Iraq with greater vigor. To get them to support the Iraq war, all we have to do is attack Iran."

The Taliban folded easier than a cheap filling station map, and much to the Dems surprise and ultimate sorrow, didn't hang around long enough to kill enough of our military men.

It's that double-edged sword for them, you see. They despise the military, but dead soldiers mean they must play act and scream QUAGMIRE. We win without that much of a fuss, and since there's nothing to bitch about, they complain about the harder battle in Iraq, the one they should be supporting because our men are in the battle of their lives.

Iraq is win-win for the liberals. They get to see much higher casualty lists, making it more palatable for them to feign sorrow before shouting...you got it...


Recreants Rejoice...All Things Are Possible When A Loon SitsThe Bench

Declaring that "times have changed," the New Jersey Supreme Court ruled yesterday that gay and lesbian couples have the same rights as heterosexual couples - and kicked open the door to same-sex marriage.

But the court left it to Garden State lawmakers to either rewrite the marriage statute or create some form of civil unions - and gave them six months to do it.

Until then, gay New Yorkers still will have to shlep to Massachusetts - the only state where gay marriage is legal - if they want to formally tie the knot.

"I still think this is an enormous victory," said Roberta Kaplan, a lawyer who led a failed bid this summer to overturn New York State's ban on gay marriage. "All that's left open is whether you use the word marriage or not."

Mayor Bloomberg also hailed the ruling.

"I've always believed it's not the government's business who you marry, and I'm committed to work in Albany to change the laws in New York," he said at an event in Chicago."

Of course. The government, as the duly elected overseer of it's society, shouldn't care if you march into a chapel with a billygoat or Rocky the Flying Squirrel. Or if you want 6 or 7 spouses. Or if you favor a harem of 9 year-olds. How's about hitching up with that old baseball glove you sleep with anyway. And if a government doesn't have a stake in the core beliefs of the society it represents, then hell, divorce should be just as easy. Kick the old bag out when she's getting as wrinkly as that Wal-Mart suitjacket.

And hell yeah, the times have changed. So many people rape and murder and rob you blind that perhaps it's time to make those peccadillo's legal as well.

Liberals. Linear thinking. The twain does not meet.

Oprah And Madonna...Perfect Together

October 26, 2006 -- "SHE'S never giving that kid back.

Speaking in a weird half-British accent, Madonna told a burbling Oprah Winfrey that the child she manipulated away from his dirt poor African dad is better off with the sluttish superstar than with his own people.

"And I say: God bless you for that!" clueless Oprah cheered, as she failed to ask a single tough question.

For half an hour, one know-nothing celeb egged on another to spin a tale of saving the African continent. Disgusting.

Oprah: "With all the other real atrocities going on in the world, all this attention is focused on you. When did you realize this had become this big of a deal?"

Madonna blamed the media, naturally, for screwing up her adoption of David Banda. She admitted she determined he was HIV-negative before taking him home.

She was severely patronizing to David's dad, Yohane - who has said he didn't realize he was giving up David "for good."

"This is a simple man who comes from a village who has nothing," she snipped.

"Suddenly he is besieged by the media of the world" - implying Yohane was too dumb to deal with reporters, but smart enough to understand he was giving Madonna his kid.

Madonna offered: "I was told [in Malawi]: 'There is a possibility you won't be able to adopt him.' I was told to look around at all the orphanages and I had to come up with other candidates."

Good God, girl. Did officials try to steer you away from David because this boy had a family?

Oprah never asked.

She also failed to challenge Madonna's assertion that Yohane never visited David at the orphanage where he was placed after his mother died. Some reports said Yohane walked 25 miles a week to see his son.

"He looked into my eyes and said to me he was grateful I was going to give his son a life and, had he kept him in the village, he would have buried him. I didn't really need any more confirmation," Madonna sniffed.

So she secured Yohane's permission to take his flesh - in writing.

Oprah didn't mention he could not read.

Don't trust these women with innocents."

Couple of decades ago and Oprah would have been the stuff bad science fiction was made of. A person so incredibly dumb that people believed her to be deep. The female version of Peter Sellers' character Chauncey Gardner in the movie "Being There". Madonna just proves that the right slut in the right place and time can make a bundle. Then again, every lucky whore has known that. Put the two of them, the irresistable slut and the immovable idiot, in the same space and time and we're fortunate the world itself did not implode.

The NY Daily News sees this far differently, but of course, and delivers a puff piece as they giggily recall the good old days when anyone with enough cash could have their very own little negro.
