It's Saturday. We're supposed to be shooting. But it's raining like hell. So what's a fella to do??

Not too bad of a day after all, no siree.

Lest we forget

Despite what Chairman Obama will have us believe, 9/11 is NOT a day to think about community service.

Obama issued a proclamation earlier this week urging Americans to mark the anniversary of the attacks with community service. After leaving the Pentagon, the president and first lady toured a Habitat for Humanity housing development in Washington and pitched in by painting a living room.
It is, and should remain, a day to remember the victims of terrorist scumbags and the brave firefighters, police, and passengers on Flight 93 who gave their lives to protect this country.

If, as President, you want to say we should all have a sense of community and be willing to help out, by all means, OK.

But not on this day.

New site for info

Found a new source for online news.... Big Government dot com.... Several VERY interesting articles in there, and the site's just getting kicked off.

For starters, here's a nice little bit of news amongst all the bad stuff we've been hearing lately with the new boss, same as the old boss running the show:

Census Bureau severs ties with ACORN in 2010 count

September 11, 2009

Ms. Maude Hurd



739 8th St SE

Washington, DC 20003

Dear Ms. Hurd:

The goal of the U.S. Census Bureau’s partnership program is to combine the strengths of state, local, and tribal governments, community-based organizations, faith-based organizations, schools, media, businesses and others to ensure an accurate 2010 Census. While not (sic) Census bureau employees, partners are advocates for census cooperation and participation. They serve a trusted voices within their communities and are critical to our strategy to count everyone once, only once, and in the right place.

The Census Bureau has established criteria for partnerships, which are listed on our Web site at , and reserves the right to decline partnership or to terminate an existing partnership agreement with any group that 1) may create a negative connotation for the Census Bureau; 2) could distract from the Census Bureau’s mission; or, 3) may make people fearful of participating in the census.

To that end, and in keeping with the standards we shared with your organization and others who volunteered to partner with the Census Bureau to help promote the 2010 Census, we are today terminating our Partnership Agreement with ACORN.

Over the last several months, through ongoing communication with our regional offices, it is clear that ACORN’s affiliation with the 2010 Census promotion has caused sufficient concern in the general public, has indeed become a distraction from our mission, and may even become a discouragement to public cooperation, negatively impacting 2010 Census efforts.

While not decisive factors in this decision, recent events concerning several local offices of ACORN have added to the worsening negative perceptions of ACORN and its affiliation with our partnership efforts.
Read the rest of the letter here.

Where do they find these people?

I fully realize and understand that there is about a third of the American electorate who continue to believe that he's the nation, if not the world's savior. That leaves an ever dwindling number of people in the middle third who think that perhaps maybe the chose one isn't so wonderful after all and an ever growing number in the final third who think he's the worst president of all time.

However, wanna guess who the AP only saw fit to include in this lovely cheer-leading article?

Typical of the quotes from "average Americans" you'll find are:

"No one is feeling satisfied with the state of the country," Derek Duffee says from behind his coffee bar's counter in Pennsylvania's Washington. "I don't know if what he's doing will work, but he's trying," says Miyoshi Braxton, an Obama fan smoking on a park bench outside her downtown apartment building in Steubenville, Ohio.
"This is really a whole new chapter in the state of America, and there's nothing we can do but keep doing what we're doing and hope it gets better," says Phil Axworthy, 58, a software developer taking a coffee break in Pittsburgh's Market Square.
About the only voice of "dissent", if you can call it that comes here:
They seethe about the expansion of government. But they also shrug that the country got what it elected — a Democrat whose Senate voting record tilted to the left.

"The socialist approach of government solving all the problems and controlling industry and controlling finance, that's not the way to continued greatness," Peter Marx, 57, at his used bookstore in Steubenville. That said, Marx added: "He won."
But don't worry, remember we are all just little lost lambs looking for some guidance from above:
Facing the possibility of American decline, people may simply be at a loss for what to do — and looking, as so often before, to their president to guide them.

Mikey Moore is an idiot

I fully realize that for our readers here on the Tattler, that is stating the obvious. But still, it must be said.

Mikey states:

"Capitalism is an evil, and you cannot regulate evil," the two-hour movie concludes.

"You have to eliminate it and replace it with something that is good for all people and that something is democracy."
So. Are we to assume that there will not be a charge to watch this movie and that Mikey wasn't paid one cent for the movie?

See, Mikey wants to be part of the apparatchik; where he and his chums have the money and power and the rest of us are left begging for leftovers.

Sorry, lard ass. I'm not buying what you're trying to sell.
