And in the headlines...

(Via SurvivalBlog)

Twenty police respond to man playing with crossbow in his backyard, seize house

Yes, that really is the headline. But beware, because the article is even more blood pressure-raising.

I wonder if the intrepid lady of the house had read this recently?

Shalom, Aaron

Via Claire Wolfe, I find out that Aaron Zelman, the founder of JPFO, has died. JPFO was one of the gun rights organizations that many people loved to hate, because it was a "no compromises" operation. I hope it can survive Aaron's loss and stay a thorn in the side of certain larger, more established groups.

Slipping down that slippery slope

(Via the Drudge Report)

So at what point do we declare it to be a Police State? Just askin'....

Of course they are

Just because North Carolina is going to be in The Budget Hole From Hell doesn't mean that any of the legislative staffers should join the pool of the potentially unemployed. Why, they're doing a wonderful (yet nonpartisan) job, helping spend money the state doesn't have.

I am more and more convinced that these idiots think we elected them to rearrange the deck chairs.

And now we know

(Via Timebomb 2000)

Now we know the name of the pilot at the top of TSA's shit list--Chris Liu. Thank you, Captain Liu. You've probably done more for airport security than the entire TSA has in its miserable existence.

Not getting the message, part n

With a $3.75 billion budget deficit and the possibility of over 20,000 layoffs staring him in the face, North Carolina Senator Marc Basnight wants to borrow a measly $3.3 million to continue the restoration of a lodge.

What part of the word "NO!" does this guy not understand?

We the People are broke, moron. We've went for years with real wages stagnant, while the burdens placed on us by our elected "betters" have increased. Add to that the inflation brought on by the continued "spend, spend, spend, borrow, borrow, borrow, print, print, print" that they have practiced, and the well is dry.

You nice folks down East need to stop sending this idiot to Raleigh.

Get my broker on the phone!

Tell him to buy Amazon stock, quick!

I say this, tongue in cheek for the most part, because Big Sister is apparently working on a decree to bring more security to "soft targets", such as shopping malls. Somehow, I don't see myself getting scanned or groped to buy a shirt or pair of pants.

Anyone have a countdown timer for the end of this lunacy?
