All Hands: Remington Corrosion-Resistant Snap Cap

My gun safe is 5' tall by 3' wide and about 3' in depth, yeah a squat old sucker, and I put one of these on the top shelf, one on the bottom, and even in the high humidity hell that is Florida none of my gear has shown the slightest propensity to rust.

I like these suckers because you can use them as a snap cap as well, and the good part about ordering one now is CDNN is giving away 3 additional ones...rifle sized...for free, and all internet orders are shipping for $5.99. The plug itself is only $4.99 and well worth every penny.

Disclaimer: I'm doing some stocking up, wanted to pass along a good deal, and have no affiliation with Remington or CDNN.

Drill We Must...But Princess Barry Says We Already Are...

By Robert Romano – Answering a question on America’s foreign dependence on oil from a Northern Virginia Community College student at a town hall event on April 19, Barack Obama boldly alleged, “we have actually continually increased U.S. production, so U.S. production is as high as it’s ever been.” It was a claim so false as to be laughable.
In fact, in 1970, the U.S. produced 9.6 million barrels of oil a day, the most we ever produced. But today, we only produce 5.5 million a day. And while domestic production slightly increased in the past two years, according to the Energy Information Agency (EIA), it now projects declines of 30,000 barrels a day in 2011 and 120,000 barrels a day in 2012, when production will only be 5.36 million.
So much for that. But then again, energy independence has always been a myth.

Or, in the least, the promise of energy independence by politicians dating back to Richard Nixon has been a fairy tale. In 1974, in response to the oil embargo, then-President Nixon promised, “Let this be our national goal: At the end of this decade, in the year 1980, the United States will not be dependent on any other country for the energy we need to provide our jobs, to heat our homes, and to keep our transportation moving.”
The only problem is that by 1980, we were only producing 8.5 million barrels a day — some 1.1 million less than we were in 1970. It declined every single year after Nixon set the goal while he was in office.

The challenge facing the country, with oil prices spiking once again, is that the U.S. consumes about 18.7 million barrels of petroleum a day, a net 9.6 million of which is imported. At $110 a barrel, we’re spending about $2.057 billion daily. If the price stays that high for a year, it will cost $750.8 billion, of which $385.4 billion would be shipped overseas!

So, besides the high prices of staples like gasoline and home heating oil, there are perfectly legitimate reasons to ramp up crude oil production, namely to stop shipping hundreds of billions of dollars overseas every day unnecessarily. That’s money that could be reinvested here.

Overall, the historic decline of the U.S. oil industry has played a key role in debilitating the domestic economy, driving overall investment overseas too, and killing American jobs.

Currently, the oil and gas industry employs 9.2 million. If the current 5.5 million barrels a day production were doubled, millions more jobs would be created. Instead oil production, like manufacturing, has been outsourced. With unemployment so high, shouldn’t we be creating jobs here in America?"

Because then we'd be prosperous and lets face it; lots easier to create government jobs for the sick, lame and lazy then actually ask people to work for a living, and a hard living at that, in the oil fields.

Primer To The Royal Wedding

Boring, bald, goofy looking Prince William will marry Kate Middleton. Willy will become King one day, and Katie...the first commoner to become an HRM in over 300 years...will be the Queen.

Willy might be marrying beneath his station but Katie is so far above his gene pool as to make him close to being another species entirely. The men will be stuffed into unearned uniforms decorated with unearned medals, most notably the Order of the Unmatched Boot, and the Sash of the Holy Toucan. The women perched beneath the most garish and stupid looking hats imaginable and dragging along the Holy Train of Gibraltar's First Folly.

After the wedding, Prince William will assume a new title, as "Prince" simply means he was born into the ROYAL FAMILY. All of Great Britain is agog over what new honorific he'll have with the smart money betting on Duke of Earl, or perhaps even Count du Monie. Kate could never have been referred to as "Princess" since she has no ROYAL bloodlines, and most probably will assume the secondary title of Vixen du Babe after of course her initial title of Duchess of Wuthering Heights.

There are 1900 people awaiting the arrival of the Queen-to-be, NONE of them named Barack or Michelle Obama. This is notable as there are soccer players arriving but the president of the United States was snubbed. Which goes to prove that no matter how you feel about royalty, they DO have taste.

Oh yeah, and the wedding is estimated to cost over $30 million dollars, or $20 million British pounds, which converted to real money is a trifle over a buck three eighty.

Photoshopper Says Obama's Birth Certificate "A Fake"

Woody has the video so click here to have a gander.

Since I have no expertise in this field all I can add is that certain parts of the "document" do happen to appear copied and pasted in. What is becoming the infamous number "1" in the year of Obama's birth looks drawn in after the fact, but there's more so go take a look.

Kissing your (ugly) Sister...Status Update On Florida Open-Carry Bill

790.053 Open carrying of weapons.—
    9         (1) Except as otherwise provided by law and in subsection
   10  (2), it is unlawful for any person to openly carry on or about
   11  his or her person any firearm or electric weapon or device.
   12  It is not a violation of this section for a person licensed to
   13  carry a concealed firearm as provided in s. 790.06(1), and who
   14  is lawfully carrying a firearm in a concealed manner, to briefly
   15  and openly display the firearm to the ordinary sight of another
   16  person, unless the firearm is intentionally displayed in an
   17  angry or threatening manner, not in necessary self-defense.
So there you have it.
The cup is half-full folks look upon this as a victory. A foot in the door.
Get the cops and soccer mom's accustomed to the idea that all men are created
equal. Tough sell.
The half-emptiers say we were sold down the river. Truth be told, we were, but 
it IS a foot in the door to open-carry, and we won't be spending a night in jail because
someone caught a glimpse of our piece 
The lawyers will have a field day but that's what lawyers do. Now its on to the House 
and since the House is more Conservative they won't be making things worse and COULD
in fact make them better. 
But right now isn't the time to speculate. Still more hard work ahead, arm twisting and 
the like.
The vast majority of feedback I'm picking up from those interested in this bill is incredibly
 There has forever been a faceoff between Florida law enforcement and those who'd deign
to carry a firearm, and many folks are feeling that the change in carry laws would 
give the police more leeway to lockup the innocent, not less. And of course
pretty much everyone is trying to decide what "briefly " means. 
The Florida Supreme Court has angered cops time and again by trying to come to 
reasonable rulings concerning the unintentional flash of a firearm, and one of the things the 
new language was supposed to do was address the situation in a fair and equitable 
Make a mistake and flash the gun, then no harm, no foul. But now the fear is that the 
police will try to twist the law in order to make their point that civilians shouldn't be
carrying guns.
But its getting late so adios for now.

This Is It...Florida Senate Votes Tomorrow On Open-Carry

And it is going to be a squeaker.

Too many women in the legislature who think that hundreds of people died at the OK Corral since open carry invites one bloodbath after another. Too many limpwristed men who believe that what they've seen on HBO mirrors the real world.

I am pretty much emotionally drained from this one; tired of talking to idiots and liberals. Wait. I repeat myself.

My honest guess is that SB 234 will go back to committee for a winnowing. They'll throw us a bone by modernizing the way we buy long guns and put some backbone into one thing or another but open carry will have to wait for mid 2012 when we toss the remainder of the democrats out along with the weak sisters who are proving to be RINO's who lied their asses off to get elected.

But should it pass?

Then  its time for me to get a brand new rig for the Blackhawk and off to the range.

We Get Letters

"I don't think you're (sic) quibbling over my review of the K-Bar was all too much pruductive (sic)...all someone wants to mainley (sic) know about a knive (sic) is how sharp it comes and the cost and perhaps what sheath materiil (sic).

I quibbled because you failed to give a genuine review, and instead offered a sales pitch.

No one enjoyed his KaBar more than I but this incessant deification of what is nothing more than an average blade for the price is getting ridiculous.

Before I go any further, including the following is what constitutes a halfway decent knife review: The blade of the KaBar in question is made of 1095 steel, something you forgot to mention. The Rockwell on that particular configuration is approximately 57 which you also forgot to mention. All old time KaBars are rat-tailed, something you forgot to mention, and I've snapped more than my share of rat-tail designs at the scale line because that is the point where the steel begins to thin out. The edge grind is sometimes 40 degrees exclusive, sometimes more, sometimes less. Something you forgot to mention.

The knife weighs in at 12 ounces and is decidedly front heavy due to the rat tail design. Which you forgot to mention. There was a time, lets say at the turn of the 19th to 20th Centuries, where a man bought what was available because he didn't have a choice in the matter. During those times it was all but impossible to search for the exact specifications one considered desirable in a knife. Crappy...yeah, crappy because I'm getting pissed as I write this...half assed sales pitches were all there was but this ain't the turn of the 19th-20th Century anymore.

You can look it up. Just as you can look up the specs on 99% of the things you'd like to "review".

Disclosure: I sent the above to a gentleman disagreeing with my position that the KaBar is not the definitive combat knife in the known universe. Yes, that does include Stargate.

Shoveling scat against the tide but sometimes I've had it up to here with reviewers regurgitating the same old stuff as they preach to a captive audience; in this instance a survivalist/military site where the venerable KaBar is very much loved. And that's fine. Buy whatcha wanna but don't recommend something you know shit from shinola about. Oh yeah and I did ask his majesty if I could include a link to the site and our back & forth but he nearly had a coronary so fuck him.

Pellet Plinker Charged

The fake-gun-wielding man shot nine times by cops as he waved an all-too-real looking pellet gun at a Bronx nightclub has been charged.
Mamadou Balde, 20, was hit with weapons and menacing complaints over the stunt Friday outside of the crowded Cocoa House hotspot in Highbridge.
Balde, who sources say is a wannabe Bloods gang member, was struck in the legs, arms, groin and foot after three cops fired 18 shots at him.

So take your pick on which is worse: 3 cops firing 18 times to drop one lunatic; 3 cops incapable of telling a pellet gun from the real deal; the NYPD continuing to go with the peashooter 9mm round* that, combined with the officer's horrid accuracy, cannot stop anything bigger than a bedbug.

*They're not changing to something more powerful anytime soon because nearly a quarter of today's "force" can barely handle the kick from a GLOCK wondernine.

PlayStation Network Hacked?

An external intrusion on our system has affected our PlayStation Network and Qriocity services. In order to conduct a thorough investigation and to verify the smooth and secure operation of our network services going forward, we turned off PlayStation Network & Qriocity services on the evening of Wednesday, April 20th. Providing quality entertainment services to our customers and partners is our utmost priority. We are doing all we can to resolve this situation quickly, and we once again thank you for your patience. We will continue to update you promptly as we have additional information to share.

Thank you very much for your patience while we work to resolve this matter.

During this time you may:
  • Not be able to access the PlayStation®Store
  • Have difficulty signing in to the PlayStation®Network
  • Not be able to play online games
  • See a maintenance page when attempting to access the PlayStation®Network  

Note: When you log into the PlayStation Network, a message may appear which states, "the PlayStation Network has been suspended".  This does not mean that your account has been suspended; it simply means the PlayStation Network has been taken offline.  Please wait until the maintenance window has passed before attempting to connect to the PlayStation Network again.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

First Amazon then PlayStation. The PS site has been offline since Thursday, and lots of folks who were planing on mega-gaming over the Easter break are spitting fire over this.

The hacker community has been up in arms over Sony suing folks for jailbreaking the PS3 and it seems like they've found a way to disrupt not only a free, but a pay-for-play service.

More Rioting In McDonalds

Clicking the headline link will bring you to a video whereupon you'll be able to watch two large black women mercilessly beating a white woman inside a McDonalds. 

YouTube pulled the video, but as a commenter noted, the Rodney King video remains there in all its glory.

Isn't just a double-standard anymore, gang. The media doesn't merely shy away from calling a spade a spade but promotes violence whenever one of their pets calls for it.

If and when the Second Revolution comes there will be an awful lot of folks held accountable for what they've done to America.

Commandments That ALL Video Games Should Follow


Having to replay levels due to limited save points.
This is a throwback to the arcade/NES days when physical limitations in the system wouldn't allow you to save your progress just anywhere. There is no reason for this now. None. We're busy. We've got work, appointments, phone calls. We shouldn't tolerate an inability to save our progress in any piece of software.

Being forced to watch boring cutscenes is a close second but for the love of Mike end the bullshit and start making ALL games instantaneously save-able because I  want to save NOW.

One of the things I like about Dragon Age 1 & 2 is there's no running around looking for a save point every time a thunder storm comes crashing down here in the frickin' tropics and holy-shit but the power might blink off. The auto-save is a nice feature as well but I still want total control because this isn't 1985.

Click the headline link to be transported to Cracked where you can see them all, and lemme know if you've a favorite commandment too.

Happy Earth Day

Just got done mowing the lawn and damn but that old mower is belching more and more smoke than ever. Still, it does the job and the blade is wicked so who am I to complain. I needed to spruce up the front a little because a heap of the Hogtown Irregulars will be stopping by before we head on over to Ert's place for our bonfire and cookout. Gene has this gigantic barbecue monster and its really a slow cooker that can fog half the swamp out but nary a 'skeeter dares show her ugly snout through that smoke.

It looks likes there's going be about 50-60 of us all told counting spouses and lady friends, (no significant others we ain't gay) and that's terrific because once it gets dark we move our vehicles down to the creek edge...on Earth Day everyone comes in his own car or truck or cycle...and turn the lights on to play gator spotting, a few dozen idling gas, diesel, and even canola oil burners do make quite the scene but hell its Earth Day so don't spare the expense.

The REAL Reason Chinamen Aren't Allowed To Google

Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer. Otherwise known as slop with hops, this bilious brew is all the fad with Wall Street types, because its just so cool to drink what the poor people drink.

Enter the chinese. Some important chinaman commie visits NYC, is taken out for a night on the town, and something gets lost in the translation because a single bottle of Pabst goes for the equivalent of $44 US smackeroonies in yellow-perilville once he returns home and brags about the elixir of all elixirs that rich Amelicans dlink.

But at least the average chinamen can't just look up Pabst, discover that it isn't all that and a bag of chips, and come to the ever so startling conclusion that their fearless leaders don't know from shinola.

The Japanese on the other hand can, but nothing stops them from ordering KitKats like there's no tomollow. 

Here's the skinny; KitKats are made by Nestle's which is owned by Nabisco but Nabisco doesn't have the manufacturing capacity to make alla them little crunchy diabetes-inducers so in the States Kit-Kats are made by Hershey.

In Japanese, Kitto-Katsu is literally translated to "break a leg", something said to wish one good luck. Enter Kit-Kats and the ensuing explosion of much needed chocolaty Kitto-Katsu's made Nestle's, Nabisco, and Hershey say and do anything they could to continue the popularity of the treat, so but of course they admitted that, why gee fella's, its the same here!

EVERYone in Amellica gives KitKats to insure good fortune! 

Anyhoot, there are over 80 variations of KitKats in Japan, and yep, there's fish-flavor too because it wouldn't be Japanese if there wasn't a nastyass aftertaste.

Arizona's Republican Governor Jan Brewer Vetoes Birther-Bill And Nixes Guns On Campus

Brewer, who grabbed headlines a year ago when she signed a get-tough state law cracking down on illegal immigrants, vetoed the bills in an announcement late on Monday.

The so-called "birther bill," would have made Arizona the first state in the nation to require presidential candidates prove U.S. citizenship by providing a long form birth certificate, and other forms of proof including baptismal or circumcision certificates, to be placed on the state ballot.

"I never imagined being presented with a bill that could require candidates for president of the greatest and most powerful nation on earth to submit their 'early baptism or circumcision certificates' ... This is a bridge too far," she said..
A former Arizona secretary of state, Brewer said she did not support designating one person as "gatekeeper to the ballot for a candidate," as it "could lead to arbitrary or politically motivated decisions."

The Republican-controlled state legislature passed the measure at a time when some foes of President Barack Obama, a Democrat question whether he is a native-born U.S. citizen. Real estate mogul and television reality show host Donald Trump is among those questioning Obama's birth in Hawaii.
Brewer also vetoed a bill that would have made Arizona the second state in the nation to allow an individual to carry a firearm -- either concealed or not -- in the public rights of way on higher education campuses, because it was "so poorly written."

Brewer said shortcomings in the bill included a failure to define "public rights of way" and the inclusion of state schools, where firearms are prohibited by federal and state laws."

Here we have a governor who cares more about what people are going to say and think about her, rather than rolling up those sleeves and doing her job

Just a few days back I harped on how the feminine side of the Florida legislature seems to continually go weak in the knees when it comes to firearms, and here we have the soon to be ex-governor of Arizona pretty much toeing the feminist line that proclaims harsh language to be more effective then guns in dealing with the scum of society.

As far as the birther law goes, I haven't read it but see nothing wrong with assuring that our Presidents are American citizens.

As something of an important aside, I can't include a link to this Reuters story because the link itself contains so may characters Google won't allow it. It seems to be the new way to assure that proper credit goes to an original source but all this really does is make it hard to actually credit that source. And by the by, the link may very well have directions to spam sites and/or heavens know what so that's that.

Where Certain Rights Are NOT Self Evident...UPDATE

Despite what liberals say, it wasn't just the Founding Father's who believed in the unalienable right to keep and bear arms, as 44 states have it in their Constitutions as well.

Even the undereducated would be forced to admit that 44 out of 57 50 is a pretty good percentage, but what about those 6 states that were too busy stomping grapes and/or forming teacher's unions instead of assuring one of the most hallowed tenets of freedom?

Some will say that the notion of guaranteeing the right to bear arms is a silly concept because there is no legal imprimatur extant to drink water or breathe air or make kickass spaghetti sauce for that matter because NO governing body would have the wherewithal to remove the basics of life, so why bring up something that is akin to mom and apple pie?

Ah, but too many patriots had fresh reminiscence of governing bodies...think British rule...that made stuff up as they went along, so they nudged and finagled and prodded until the general consensus to self protection WAS written down for all to see just in case some folks awoke one day with a really really case of WTF.

So then.  

New York
New Jersey


Which was/is the infamous state #6?

No fair asking Barney Google. What does your gut tell you?


Okay...the loser was IOWA...

Yes, the dog food manufacturing capital of the world didn't feel it necessary to include the right to bear arms, but just try mowing down a corn field and see what happens to ya.

I lived there for several years and getting a concealed carry permit meant registering as a member of whichever political party the local sheriff was a part of.

PS: And refusing to do so while adding "Why not go fuck yourself" doesn't help at all.

Dueling Headlines

The lead headline is from the NY Daily Snooze News, the second from Drudge. To such liberal entities as the Snooze, two or three liberal plants heckling a Conservative means her star is fading. Actually, there were two divergent groups present; commie teacher frigs who showed up to dirty the place with litter, and Tea Party folks who cheered her on. 

King George was the first one to make the mistake of pissing off and dismissing Tea Party favorites, but history has been replaced with politics in the schools these "teachers" sleep in so none of them would know that Tea Partiers have a damned good track record.

And While We're On Texas...

"House Republican Conference Chairman Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, was invited by the president to watch him deliver the speech at George Washington University. Upon returning to the Capitol, Hensarling said Obama's remarks "set a new standard for class warfare rhetoric." He added, "I missed lunch for this?"

Old Jeb is at least a fiscal Conservative and at most a Texas Patriot and that's good enough for me. Might even get me one a'them phony addresses like the folks who voted for Obama have, so's I can vote for Jeb next time he needs a helpin' hand.

Texans Itchin to Drive 85

And Good For Texas

"In Texas, it seems 80 mph just isn't fast enough.
A bill passed in the state House of Representatives would raise the speed limit to 85 miles per hour on certain long stretches of road or designated lanes. The Senate is working on a similar proposal.
If the bill becomes a law, Texas will have the highest speed limit in the country."

If the road can handle it, then so should the driver. All Texas will be doing is to allow truckers to make better time and lower the states income from speeding tickets.

Open Carry Part Scazillion

On Friday, another milestone was achieved as open-carry passed as several committeemen kicked it upstairs so to speak, ever nearer to a full vote then on to the governor who has said he'll sign the thing.

CommitteeMEN, because virtually all of the dissenting votes came from committeeWOMEN who don't care who is robbed, murdered or killed, yet will  excoriate law enforcement each and every time a female is harmed through sexual violence. The wonderful idea of a kinder more gentle electorate and political system died on the vine grown from the ugly feminazi'ists who expect us to die as slowly as possible so that they may better escape harm, yet would deny us the tools to do so.

Yep, I WILL die for you sweety but at least give me a fighting chance.

We're close.

The Queen And Her Court

"...That's right folks we're bustin' these knives out at a ridiculous low cost that works out to five eighty six point three cents a knife apiece for the seven of them..." Todd Boone

So let's see how that would look: $5.86.3. Hmm. Must be Tennessean metric.

Well we've got good news and bad news. The good news is the barkers over at Cutlery Corner have done away with referring to their Chinamen potsteels as "Custom" knives. "Limited Edition", yes. "Close-out prices", yes. "Warehouse clearance", yes. Doesn't matter all that much that the SAME knives have been Limited and Closed-out and on Clearance for years now, because someone over at Frost has got hisseff a dictionary and looked up the word "Custom". That's at least the beginning of learning to speak the English language.

The bad news? Whew. Sorry to say that Cutlery Corner is moving from 2 AM and 3 AM four mornings a week, to 3:30 AM for three mornings a week. Last month they made a big deal of running a test show at 12:30 PM, then said nary a word how it all worked out, but your name didn't have to be Nielsen to come to the conclusion that they bombed bigtime. Cutlery Corner is an infomercial and there are far more entertaining infomercials for TV viewers at that time of day so forget seeing Toddy and the Queen at any reasonable hour. Ever.

The Queen promised his viewers he'd try like heck to broadcast earlier, so of course they are doing the opposite.

WHOOPS. Was just getting ready to hit Publish Post when Stuttering Todd said "...and this is a custom blade on this Bowie..." Oh well.

Florida Open-Carry Update

"Law enforcement is going to start drawing their weapons and challenging these individuals, and something bad may very well happen."

Pinellas County Sheriff Jim Coates while testifying before the Florida legislature on the issue of open-carry.

Lots of us here in the Gunshine State have contacted our representatives and asked them to remain aware of the fact that Sheriff Coates has clearly threatened the citizenry with bodily harm for doing nothing other than exercising their Constitutional rights, and to consider taking preemptive action against not only this Sheriff but any member of the constabulary declaring that they too feel that the badge makes a man more equal.

Coates and those like Coates have been forecasting the usual "blood running in the streets" scenarios should open-carry pass, but this time with a new wrinkle. Usually, the song and dance goes something like this:

One citizen gets mad at another citizen then calls him out for a showdown. Both are killed, along with several dogs, cats, little old ladies, and a baker's dozen mailmen and meter-readers.

But now its: Cops all over the state spy men with guns. Cops then shoot men with guns, creating widows and orphans and severely stress the already overloaded cemetery systems. Embalming fluid prices go through the roof and bodies pile up in mortuary alleyways. Burning laws are eased to accommodate outdoor cremations, and soon afterwards the whole state burns to the ground due to an unusually dry summer season.

Gainesville...the current location of Fort in particular dead-set against open-carry, due to the fact that six of the seven city commissioners are democrats. Alachua County swings back and forth, but current Sheriff Sadie (cops are EXTRA-special people) Darnell is the most liberal human on the face of God's green earth and that includes Nancy Pelosi and Hillary RodHam. Oh yeah, and she's just as homely, too.

The Queen Of Steel And His Retinue

The old queen James A. Frost had two of the grand-kid's on to start off Cutlery Corner this evening, and as usual the 8 year-old grandson was his bratty, uncontrollable self, bespeaking a poor rearing amongst clueless backwooded inbreds. The kid stood atop a milk crate, kicked the table in front of him, swung his arms, clapped his hands, then ruffled poor Stuttering Todd Boone's hair.

The Queen was ranting on about how his granddaughter's softball team won some inbred tournament or another, but at least the young lady is graceful which leads one to imagine her not being fathered by a son of James A. Frost.

On to the leadoff product. A pearl-handled knife that was ingrained with "The World's Greatest Mom" hastily made due to the sellout of the previous one they had constructed for Mother's Day. Problem is, they sold out that particular product several shows ago, and the Queenie lied and said that they just minutes ago ran out of stock.

Not even a lick of this can be the truth because all of the Queen's products come from China or India or Pakistan and it would not have been possible to place an order via slow boat and have it delivered in "minutes".  All it was was a lame attempt at weasel-wording out of the fact that they continued to advertise a product that has not been available.

Many, many folks gladly believe the lies coming from the Queen of Steel, as they wouldn't know a good knife from bad and truly think that kissing the Queens hem will exhort her to keep those great deals a'comin'.

In other news, Miss Mary is readying yet another Mystery Box for Mother's Day and rumor has it that she and the Queen will be sporting some extra fancy finery for the filming of the show on the day of that great event. I'm thinking a long, flowing train highlighted by mother-of-pearl.

The Public School Ban on Homemade Lunches

The public school lunch program is again making headlines.
You might have thought this issue was already resolved when Obama signed into law the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, a bill strongly supported by First Lady Michelle Obama in her effort to curb childhood obesity. Through this law, school breakfasts, lunches and vending machines were refashioned to be more nutritious and offer only healthy options.

But now the issue is back, and school officials have now launched a ban on homemade lunches.

Yes indeed boys and girls, this would lead some to believe that the folks who run ChiTown know FAR more about nutrition than the average parent, but step back for a moment and ruminate on this:

Had a look at the average teacher these days? The women have asses to put Michell Obama's to shame, and any male teacher not a gym instructor could rent out advertising space both front and back.

Then why the kerfuffle?

Easy. The company that sells the lunches is politically connected.

Toon For A Fine Monday

"Giants, Dodgers plead for calm ahead of series"

In one of the most violent episodes in a rivalry that dates to 1889, Giants fan Bryan Stow suffered a savage beating after an opening-day game at Dodger Stadium on March 31. The 42-year-old Santa Cruz paramedic was attacked by two unknown assailants and remains in a medically induced coma at Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center.

As the search for Stow's attackers continues, the Giants are bracing for the next round: The Dodgers arrive Monday for a three-game series at AT&T Park, and the Giants have significantly bumped up the amount of security enforcement in and around the stadium.

Baseball happily smiles at the receipts from beer sales at games featuring heated rivals, then "pleads" for calm when gangbangers do what gangbangers are famous for doing. Fact of the matter is, in dirty places like LA and San Francisco, baseball stadiums would be as lively as Grants' Tomb were alcohol to be banned from either or both venues. The creatures would stay home or sneak in their own drug of choice, and while we're at it, can anyone tell me why obvious gangsters are allowed in the parks to begin with?

See the colors the guy is wearing from a picture taken from a previous game? Colors "belong" to gangs. Mexican gang members are duty-bound to kill anyone caught wearing a color they shouldn't be wearing. Oh they'll let you live if you apologize and swear never to do it again but something tells me that this guy wasn't in the mood to apologize for anything.

Out Of Cutlery Corner

Our free-ends (friends) at Frost Cutlery opened their show this morning barking the below listed items. Trouble is, they were nowhere to be found at their web site. Or rather, search results returned: "No Results Found". Now, the show airs here on ION looooooong after it is broadcast live, and heavens forbid they take the time to edit the knives that have been sold out.

CCN-23290: A special Mother's Day commemorative knife, with Happy Mother's Day etched on the blade!
CCN-21851: Average piece of crap
CCN-23216: Average piece of crap
CCN-23248: Ditto
Then I got tired and stopped looking

And I checked for availability whilest old Toddy was still barkin', so they could not have possibly sold out in mere seconds. 

Know what they call people who advertise products that they don't actually have?

Of course you do. They're called Crooks.

BUT, however, the infamous Cutlery Stampede...CCN-23289, 122 individual pieces of butterknife-dull pot metal for only $130.00...was still up and at 'em, even though Mr. Todd Boone hawked loud and clear that it was sellin' fast and come git 'em now before they is all sold out!

The way Cutlery Corner works is as follows: They run some products, say for perhaps half an hour. Then, for the remainder of Boone's air time...which is 2 hours...they continue to replay the tape of the same items he hawked at the opening of the show. O'Dell and Man-Hands-Travis follow, and they go through the same routine. Over and over; pitching what they do not have.

The Mother's Day knife was particularly galling. They advertised it on Wednesday, yesterday, and again today. Probably hoping you'd try to order one and settle for something else to give mommy on her day. Planting the seed of thought and imagination. Knowing full well that the normal Frost customer wouldn't think anything strange about giving his own mother a cheap knife on Mother's Day.

I was going to get a passel of 'em and give them away here. Dang it all.

AKM74 5.45X39

J&G Sales has them for $359.95, plus all the attending paperwork and godawful bullswaddle the federal government demands of you. The 5.45X39 is of course the ballistic twin of the 5.56, but in the AKM74 you have it all in a far less expensive...and infinitely more reliable...package. Won't stop a wild hog before he gores you, but a well placed shot will at least stun a deer long enough for you to skin him.

The Russkies and their Chicom bedfellows all but give these away to whatever third-world nincompoops want them, but even at dirt cheap pricing the sand fleas ask instead for the AK. Which says all you need to know. The cultists can have any longarm they want and still import AK's by the boatload.

That said, the AKM is one helluva plinker.

Barry Awaits The Answer

Presidnet (sic) Obama speaks to the White House press corps after an unsuccessful meeting

The answer will not be to your liking, Barry; and know what...I kind of like "Presidnet" better than President. Sort of like our first pig-Latin commander in chief.

Saudis ‘So Unhappy' With Obama They Sent Emissaries to China, Russia Seeking Enhanced Ties – Reporting from Baghdad, Iraq yesterday, NBC’s Tom Brokaw said the Saudi Arabian monarchy is “so unhappy with the Obama administration for the way it pushed out President Mubarak of Egypt” that it has sent senior officials to the Peoples' Republic of China and Russia to seek expanded business opportunities with those countries.
After remarking on the difficulty of establishing democracy in the Middle East, Brokaw said that Defense Secretary Robert Gates “will face some tough questions in this region about the American intentions going on now with all this new turmoil, especially in an area where the United States has such big stakes politically and economically.”

“And a lot of those questions presumably will come from King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia,” reported Brokaw on the Nightly News.  “I was told on the way in here that the Saudis are so unhappy with the Obama administration for the way it pushed out President Mubarak of Egypt that it sent high level emissaries to China and Russia to tell those two countries that Saudi Arabia now is prepared to do more business with them.”

Now remember; this is the guy who STILL stands a good choice to win in 2012. Why? Because Ma and Pa Fudd still don't get their news from reliable sources. The fact that the great uniter has in fact alienated all of the civilized and most of the 3rd world doesn't faze them because they simply don't know.

Since after their darling JFK was nearly defeated by that goon Nixon, the mass media has made it a crusade to elect whomever they want, the proof of the pudding being Barack himself who was and remains unqualified and therefore without portfolio for the job. He plays ball with them, he's back in.

Simple as that.

Obama's Campaign "Promises: Kept Or Broken

1)Close Guantanamo Bay: NO
2) Letting Bush-Era Tax Cuts Expire: NO
3) Foreclosure Prevention Fund: 50-50
4) Immigration Reform: NO
5) Restricting Former Lobbyists from Serving in Obama Administration: NO
6) Iraq War: 50-50...he just went and began another one so the spirit of the deal is nixed
7) Repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell": YES
8) Sign a ‘Universal' Health care Bill: YES

4 definite no's, 2 definite yes's, and 2 stabs in the dark. And the 2 yes's are still being fought against. Sure, he signed Obamacare, but its being eviscerated almost daily, and Don't-Ask is just beginning to create problems that anyone with even half a brain could have foreseen. 

Bottom Line: Total, irreversible fail with a capital O.

Everything You Wanted To Know About The Varmint Round Identified As The .223/5.56 But Were Afraid To Ask...

By Patrick Sweeney

The original caliber for the AR-15 wasn’t the .223/5.56, it was a slightly smaller cartridge. The .222 Special delivered the kind of performance that the designers wanted, which was basically a 50-grain bullet at under 3,000 feet per second.

The Army, trying to keep the AR away and keep the M14 in the running, kept moving the goalposts. Finally, they insisted that the bullet used had to penetrate a steel helmet at a distance farther than their own research had indicated soldiers fired on opponents. The special got stretched and boosted, until the 55-grain FMJ was at 3,100 fps.

And there it stood, until the mid-1980s, when the SS109 came about. That was intended for use against swarms of Soviet infantry in Western Europe. What, there never were swarms of Soviet infantry in Western Europe? Musta worked.

So our armed forces had a decision to make after the 5.56 went kerplop. Drop billions redesigning and testing and manufacturing new battle rifles, ammunition and magazines, or spend the money on better field radios so as to call in air support and/or artillery.

Pictured: The basic lineup: .223, 6X45, 6.8 and 6.5. All of these are double-stack magazines, and thus have reasonably large capacities. The fattest, the 6.5, still fits 20 or so in a regular-sized magazine.

NASA Releases Pix Of Mercury

NASA this afternoon released the first-ever photo of Mercury taken from a spacecraft in orbit around the innermost planet of the solar system.
The most arresting element of the photo is the rayed crater Debussy. 

Glad I lived to see the day we took a good look at Mercury. Outstanding.

Classy Cutlery

"Now we got us a big black Bowie that could be a fireman's knife cuza the etching, the wording, the writing on the blade says "Find 'em hot, leave 'em wet". And I guess that's just what firemen do, right?" Todd Boone, Cutlery Corner.

Obama Calls News Conference...Steps Down....Names Successor....

In a move that took all of Washington by surprise, President Barack Obama held an impromptu news conference on the White House Lawn, apologizing for two years of complete inadequacy:

"I'd like to take this time to extend my most sincerest of apologies to the American people," the President said while reading from what appeared to be a somewhat glitchy teleprompter, "but hey listen, so many of the Presidents in my lifetime made it look easy so we figured, what the heck, let's move on in and toss one helluva party and play golf while the cleaning staff are tidying up for the next party. I mean, even Michelle had no idea that her ass was going to be a topic of conversation when compared to the rest of the world's First Women, or that her overbite was in truth so scary as to make grown men weep, but that isn't important now."

What is important is for us to hand the White House on over to someone who gives a royal shit and can actually do the job, so after conducted, er contracted, um conducting secret canvasses throughout all 57 states we've decided to pass the rains, er reins to one of the most trusted men in America, and that man is Rush Limbaugh. Congress folks started tellin' me that there was some kind of succession deal that had to be followed but since I've never once paid any attention to the people or the Congress or the Constitution, the job belongs to Rush.

I for one don't think that that cracker can do one inch better, but let Mr. Bigmouth Fatass see what its like from the inside looking in. Um, make that the outside looking, oh forget it. Friggin prompter never did work.

Thank you for all the gifts because I made out like a bandit, and I'm off to smoke my black ass a Kool or two. Oh yeah, may Allah bless America." 

Ha. Let them put that in their XXXXing peace pipes and toke it. And get your honky ass hands away from me secret service bitch. Ya'll need go find that lard ass mother XXXXer I done gave the job to and leave my black motherXXXXing ass be, hear?
