You know, I'd tell Minneapolis to go pound sand

(from the email list that must remain nameless)

A tornado tears through a neighborhood, and a professional tree trimmer volunteers to help out.

He's fined $250 for his trouble.

Me likey

In the wake of the absurdly successful Lucky Gunner Shoot/incredibly insulting Lucky Gunner Ammo Waitress Debacle, Sean at An NC Gun Blog is tossing out the idea of a get together for those of us in this AO. Go check in and let him know what you think.

I must be as stupid as they say Sarah Palin is

(Via the Drudge Report)

Because I absolutely do not understand why reporters, who feel they need to do things like break traffic laws and take a leak on the side of the road trying to keep up with her, are her fault. Despite their whining, she has no obligation to tell them squat about her itinerary or anything else if she doesn't care to. Work for a change, cry babies!

Truth be told, I'm enjoying watching her play the bastards like a violin. After what they tried to do to her and their family, they deserve all the fun they're getting to have.

So long, Marshall

Here's an idea

(Via Weatherbrains)

After all of the EF-Holy Crap level tornadoes in recent weeks, you might find yourself considering some sort of shelter in which to ride out that on-coming EF-5. But how do you know which ones are worth the money (as in, are sturdy enough to save your bacon)?

The National Storm Shelter Association can probably help you out. These folks oversee the testing and certification of storm shelters, among other good works. The group is an outgrowth of pre-fab storm shelter testing that was done at Texas Tech in the 1990s.

Worth a look.

Steven Camp is dead

Michael Bane reports the bad news.

Mr. Camp was one of "the" men to talk to on the subject of the Browning Hi-Power. I got to know of him from his work with the 1911 for which he was lesser known. He was a gentleman and a scholar, always with time to talk guns.

It's a big loss in our world.

Thanks

Enough being angry about what's happening to the country. Time to take a minute and remember why we still have it in the first place.

Thanks, fellas.

Peg the Hypocrisy Meter: About that Infiniti...

Debbie Wasserman "Sgt." Schultz drives an Infiniti FX35. Nice ride. However, she also thinks that Republicans (at least the ones who can think) were against the GM and Chrysler bailouts because "If it were up to the candidates for president on the Republican side, we would be driving foreign cars."

So tell us, Debbie dear, who made you buy the foreign car? Did some e-e-e-evil Republican force you to? Or did you, like most people, make an economic decision based on what you thought was best for you?

Nice idea, but somehow I doubt it happens

From the PJ Tattler and an anonymous person in Atlanta, we have this bit of wisdom.

Notice that this didnt' happen when the NRA Annual Convention was in town

Just sayin'. :-)
