The Judge

Today must be my day for information from my buds. The following describes a .45 caliber/410 gauge pistol that looks ideal for protection in close quarters. I think the 410 capability is great because if you have to use it, you aren’t going to kill someone two rooms over, and you don’t have to be the world’s greatest shot to hit your target.

Link to "The Judge."

But although "The Judge" looks impressive for close in defense, I’ll still take my 20 gauge short barrel pump loaded with No 4 shot for every thing outside a car. Light, almost no recoil and accurate enough so that duffers like me can damage what I shoot at.

Besides. I love to hear that shhhkunkk when I chamber a round.

I wonder why this didn't make the MSM??

Could it be that it doesn't fit in with their agenda?

I got this from my bud from Texas, Mike L. My thanks to him.

In Tennesse e we really do pull off the road and stop for funerals......nobody moves until the last car has gone by.

What follows is a message from Vicki Pierce about her nephew James' funeral (he was serving our country in Iraq):

'I'm back, it was certainly a quick trip, but I have to also say it was one of the most amazing experiences of my life. There is a lot to be said for growing up in a small town in Tennnessee The service itself was impressive with wonderful flowers and sprays, a portrait of James, his uniform and boots, his awards and ribbons. There was lots of military brass and an eloquent (though inappropriately longwinded) Baptist preacher. There were easily 1000 people at the service, filling the church sanctuary as well as the fellowship hall and spilling out into the parking lot.

However, the most incredible thing was what happened following the service on the way to the cemetery. We went to our cars and drove to the cemetery escorted by at least 10 police cars with lights flashing and some other emergency vehicles, with Tennessee police handling traffic. Everyone on the road who was not in the procession, pulled over, got out of their cars, and stood silently and respectfully, some put their hands over their hearts.

When we turned off the highway suddenly there were teenage boys along both sides of the street about every 20 feet or so, all holding large American flags on long flag poles, and again with their hands on their hearts. We thought at first it was the Boy Scouts or 4H club or something, but it continued .. for two and a half miles. Hundreds of young people, standing silently on the side of the road with flags. At one point we passed an elementary school, and all the children were outside, shoulder to shoulder holding flags kindergartners, handicapped, teachers, staff, everyone. Some held signs of love and support. Then came teenage girls and younger boys, all holding flags. Then adults. Then families. All standing silently on the side of the road. No one s poke, n ot even the very young children.

The military presence, at least two generals, a fist full of colonels, and representatives from every branch of the service, plus the color guard who attended James, and some who served with him .. was very impressive and respectful, but the love and pride from this community who had lost one of their own was the most amazing thing I've ever been privileged to witness.

You know, I have to wonder if this would have caused Mrs. B. Hussein Obama to have some pride in her country?

Or is that pride reserved only for her own desires? I think we know the answer.

A picture IS worth a 1000 words

Well,well. Here is a good look at the Democrats’ presumptive Presidential nominee. Don’t you think he looks just swell? I wonder if he is considering that outfit for the swearing in ceremony… Gotta be diverse you know!

And then we have the endorsement by Louis Farrakhan. Which Hussein’s troopers rushed to disavow…. Well, not really..

Said Obama campaign spokesman Bill Burton: "Sen. Obama has been clear in his objections to Minister Farrakhan's past pronouncements and has not solicited the minister's support."

I mean, so what? You have it.

But just to clear things up, Hussein himself spoke:

"I decry racism and anti-Semitism in every form and strongly condemn the anti-Semitic statements made by Minister Farrakhan," Obama said in the statement. "I assume that Trumpet Magazine made its own decision to honor Farrakhan based on his efforts to rehabilitate ex-offenders, but it is not a decision with which I agree."

The above non-disavowal was touted by the Washington Post as:

the Obama campaign responded with an unequivocal statement on it from the candidate himself.

Do Journalists actually study the English language anymore? Do they take any courses in critical thinking? But I digress.

Ok. But can we now have a disavowal? Neither of the two statements is. Instead they are attempts to parse and straddle. Here, Hussein. This is a disavowal.

“I condemn Louis Farrakhan’s many hateful statements about Jews and whites. I did not seek his endorsement and totally reject it.”

No charge because I know you are too busy getting yourself deeper and deeper in the hole.

A classmate sends this educational comment.

At one time in my life, I thought I had a handle on the meaning of the word "service."

"It's the act of doing things for other people."

Then I heard these terms which reference the word SERVICE:

Internal Revenue Service, Postal Service, Telephone Service, Civil Service, City & County Public Service, Customer Service, Service Stations

Then I became confused about the word "service." This is not what I thought "service" meant.

So today, I overheard two farmers talking, and one of them said he had hired a bull to "service" a few of his cows. BAM! It all came into perspective. Now I understand what all those "service" agencies are doing to us.

I hope you now are as enlightened as I am.

My thanks to Billy F.

You are who you vote for.

I had an old bud call me up this morning and show a modest amount of umbrage over my suggestion last night that there are no moderate Democrats.

“I am a moderate,” he proclaimed, “and I am a Democrat.”

Not wishing to engage in verbal jockeying so early in the morning I asked him. “Will you vote for whoever the Demos nominate?” His answer was, to paraphrase; of course, I am a Democrat so I support the party. I rested my case by inquiring about his family, wishing them well and saying good bye.

Folks, it is time to quit fooling yourselves. You are who you vote for. If you vote for Hussein you are not a moderate Democrat. You are a Left wing Democrat who has promised to abandon Iraq, bring the troops home immediately, engage in talks with countries that sponsor terrorists with no pre-condition and nuke Pakistan.

If you vote for a Democratic Representative or Senator you are a Left wing Democrat who has promised to surrender in Iraq, de-fund the troops, increase taxes, give amnesty to intercultural sojourners – aka illegal aliens - and hold hearings on such weighty matters as did ballplayers use HGH and steroids while the economy tanks and Iran builds nuclear missiles.

Not that the Repubs are a lot better, but the facts are the facts, and the above is what the current Democratic Party stands for.

Deal with it. Admit it or vote for someone else. They aren’t going to change, and your Demo Congress person, if you elect him/her, will keep the radical Left in power, with the capability to introduce bills, waste millions of dollars in useless so called “oversight hearings” and destroy our efforts towards winning the WOT and closing the borders to the intercultural sojourners.

Remember. The party in the majority has the majority on the committees. What that means is that a Demo bill can be voted out and into debate on the floor by the majority in the committee. If the Demos want to squash the so-called “Fairness Doctrine” all they have to do is get it out of committee. If the Repubs want to extend the Bush tax cuts they will never get that bill out of committee.

So the party of the individual you vote for is important.

If you put a radical in power then you have become a radical.

There are no moderate Democrats.

If you needed a reason

to not vote for Hussein, here it is.

CHICAGO (AP) - In his first major public address since a cancer crisis, Nation of Islam Minister Louis Farrakhan said Sunday that presidential candidate Barack Obama is the "hope of the entire world" that the U.S. will change for the better.
