Can you hear me now?

In Tampa.

Near Houston, in the Woodlands.

In Michigan.

In Missouri.

In Denver.

And here in Dallas.

Can you hear me now?
Or does the Democrat Party need more?

It was high time to retire the old grip on my faithful Infinity blaster, and thanks to the boys at SVI, I now have a brand-new grip, new bushings, new mainspring housing, and a 1.5lb trigger job. I'll be putting it through the paces tomorrow at the Greenville match. Purty, ain't she?

Had enough yet?

A group of old folks (Nazis, obviously) gave speakers at an AARP meeting here in Dallas a couple of days ago some serious grief.

Must be more of the swastika carrying crowd that's giving the libs a dose of their own medicine, or maybe it's the guy wearing an Atlas Shrugged T-shirt that's got 'em all scared?

Round up

Some interesting stuff out there today in the news...

For starters, the esteemed Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, has stated for the record, that people like you and me are not voicing our own opinions but are instead paid hacks. And oh, by the way, that the protesters who are out there speaking out against Obamacare are, get this.... carrying "swastikas and things like that to a town hall meeting..." Tell a lie often enough and loud enough, right?

Next up, the statists running the Country (into the ground, I might add...) have ordered 3 brand spanking new top of the line executive jets for them to travel around the world in. And what makes it worse, they took the money out of the Defense Department's budget to the tune of nearly $200 million.

Let's think about that for a moment, shall we? The same people who criticized auto execs flying corporate jets to Washington are the same arrogant bastards who are spending almost $200 million of OUR money to ferry their pompous asses around the world. First off, I could care less what some corporate CEO (or anyone else for that matter) does with their own money. If they want to fly on their own aircraft, drive their own car, or hitchhike across the country, I don't give a damn.

Congress, however, isn't spending their own money (or their own company's money). They are spending OUR money. And frankly, I believe if they had to take a Greyhound bus home to visit their constituents instead of jet setting across the globe, we'd all be a lot better off. Apparently, however, Speaker Pelosi and her statist colleagues believe what Napoleon the pig so eloquently stated: “All animals are created equal, but some animals are more equal."

And finally, some better news. Senator Cornyn has been on fire the past few days, taking the attack to the statist thugs running our country. On Monday, he released a statement criticizing the so called "Great Lakes Gitmo".

“The terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay were sent there for a reason; they hate America and dream of killing innocent Americans. Needlessly spending millions of taxpayer dollars on a ‘Great Lakes GITMO’ makes no sense and serves no purpose, other than to pander to the most extreme within the President’s party. We are a compassionate and civilized nation, but it is the duty of those in public office to ensure the safety and security of our citizens, first and foremost. That is why these dangerous individuals belong at GITMO and not on U.S. soil.
“I implore the President to keep that in mind and immediately stop throwing good taxpayer dollars after bad policy ideas. If he is looking for a creative way to spend money, I respectfully suggest leaving GITMO open and using the millions of dollars in ‘savings’ to pay down the monumental deficit he has racked up since taking office in January.”
And then today, in response to the White House's request to turn in your friends and neighbors if one suspects something... fishy (and *they* have the gall to call US Nazis?) Senator Cornyn stated:

“I am not aware of any precedent for a President asking American citizens to report their fellow citizens to the White House for pure political speech that is deemed ‘fishy’ or otherwise inimical to the White House’s political interests,”
“I can only imagine the level of justifiable outrage had your predecessor asked Americans to forward emails critical of his policies to the White House. I suspect that you would have been leading the charge in condemning such a program -- and I would have been at your side denouncing such heavy-handed government action.”

Wanna have some fun?

Send a love note to flag@whitehouse.gov. They are asking for us to help them identify "fishy" online rumors and innuendos about the health care fiasco because you see, there's lots of misinformation out there.

Feel free to copy use my note as a template, and have some fun with it!

I tell you what, I think the whole thing is fishy. I've searched and searched my copy of the Constitution and can't find a single mention of giving the government ANY power (great or small) over my personal health care choices. Odd, huh?

Speaking of fishy, have you seen this? http://michellemalkin.com/2009/08/04/health-care-czars-office-calls-for-internet-snitch-brigade/ I'd be most interested to see your reply.


How's that ole saying go??

Turnabout's fair play?

I can't tell you how much I'm enjoying listening to the Democrats whine and complain that the protesters raiding town hall meetings are not spontaneous and are bused in, paid for by some megalithic corporation or whatever the excuse of the day is.

In Austin, Texas, Rep. Lloyd Doggett was drowned out by a group of noisy, sign-waving demonstrators who shouted, “Just say no” as he tried to talk about health care reform... In an e-mail to POLITICO Monday, Doggett called the group a “mob, sent by the local Republican and Libertarian parties” that “came not just to be heard but to deny others the right to be heard.”
As I posted way back when, in 2005 when I snuck behind enemy lines (sorry, that made me laugh) and inspected good ole Cindee Sheehan's protest camp at the Bush Crawford residence. The hippies I ran into were running a smooth, professional operation with porta potties, shuttle buses and professionally made posters and banners. All of which cost money, time and effort.

While the state run media is always happy to point out that a leftist demonstration is always spontaneous, they are not giving the same story about conservative demonstrations - if the state run media covers it at all. And as an aside, I could care less if the Republicans bused demonstrators in. As I pointed out at Camp Sheehan, conservatives could (and should) learn a thing or two from the hippies. After all, they have a 4 decade head start on protesting and it's about time they had a taste of their own medicine.

2 Obama officials: No guarantee taxes won't go up - Yahoo! Finance

BOHICA, kids. The Fearless Leader continues to demonstrate his hatred of Americans.
President Barack Obama's treasury secretary said Sunday he cannot rule out higher taxes to help tame an exploding budget deficit, and his chief economic adviser would not dismiss raising them on middle-class Americans as part of a health care overhaul.
TEA party, my ass. This is about to create some real protest in this country, mark my words.

Coming Home

After 18 long years, one of our own is finally coming home.

The remains of the first American lost in the Gulf War have been found in Iraq, the military said Sunday, a sorrowful resolution of a nearly two-decade old question about the fate of Navy Capt. Michael "Scott" Speicher.
Rest in Peace, Captain.
