Time to start encrypting your email

(Via the Drudge Report)

Our Feral Government wants to help protect the Intertubz from the terrorists, and in the meantime snoop all your traffic:

The program is designed to look for indicators of cyber attacks by digging into all Internet communications, including the contents of emails, according to the declassified summary.

With all of the intrusions into our rights in the name of "fighting terrorism" since 9/11, it almost makes one wonder...Nah--couldn't be. They aren't that smart.

"Is Hayworth ad mocking McCain offensive?"

(Via the Drudge Report)

That is the question asked by the AZ/DC Blog.

Sen. John McCain's re-election campaign is decrying as insulting an online ad by GOP Senate challenger J.D. Hayworth that mocks McCain, R-Ariz., by defacing his picture with some sort of blue warpaint.

"Ads like this have no place in the Republican primary, and J.D. Hayworth should immediately take it down and apologize," said Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., a strong McCain ally.

Offensive? I certainly hope it is. While I admire Sen. McCain for his service record, his record in the Senate is less than admirable. Apologize for it? I think not. Stand your ground, Mr. Hayworth. Speak the truth and let the chips fall where they may.

The RINOs have been the ruination of the Republican party, and are why I left it. When they start acting like the Party of Reagen, when the decide it's time for a new Contract with America, then maybe I'll come back into the fold. Until then, I'm going to hang around outside and throw global warming balls (we used to call them snowballs when I was a kid) at them.

Nah, it's not anti-gun bigotry

At least, it isn't if you're in New Jersey.

Matthew Carmel's son played in the South Orange-Maplewood Baseball League last year and he wanted to sponsor a team in the coming season. A sponsorship costs $300.

The league committee rejected his offer, and Carmel thinks that it is because his business happens to be a gun store called Constitution Arms.

"It is fairly clear that someone has a problem with firearms," he told MyFoxNY.com.

From what I know of New Jersey, it's more like they have a problem with personal freedom and self-responsibility.

The best way to deal with these places is not to deal with them. Don't patronize businesses there, and tell them why. Live there and love your freedom? Move. Deprive them of your industry, your ingenuity and most importantly, your taxes. Allow them to sink into the morass of their own making.

Now this is something to write about

A bill that allows people to carry concealed handguns into bars has won final legislative passage and heads now to Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell for his expected signature.

As expected, "Opponents argued that bringing firearms into places of varying degrees of sobriety will come to a tragic end." I imagine that, as per usual, blood will stubbornly refuse to flow in the streets, bars or elsewhere.

Three cheers for Virginia.

No, I haven't fallen off the planet

Quite honestly, my reservoir of vitriol is running low. I mean, how much can you say about a President who makes Jimmah Carter look competent? How often can I go off on abuses of power by everything from the Fiddlin' Feral Government to your local elected weasels? How many times do you have to point out that the economy sucks on it's better days, and is scary as hell on the bad ones?

Add to that that I can't even find anything "different" to comment on, and well....

Right now, I'm tired of it. I'm still keeping up, but for a while I think I need a break. It could be the winter blahs--heaven knows I'm about ready for some spring around here.

One good piece of news is that Mrs. Freeholder attended her concealed carry class this weekend and passed with the highest scores in her class. I'm very proud of her performance. I'm waiting to see when she will go to actually get her permit.

At any rate, I'm not planning on closing up shop, but I'm going to hang up the "Gone Fishing" sign, sort of.
