Time to go back to the land: Planning to be as off-grid as I can - in the process there'll be music, guns, guitars, a smattering of politics (really kind of over that), CNC routing, yeah - a bunch of other stuff, too. Conservative with libertarian leanings - no wookie suit, yet. Μολὼν λαβέ - ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒE

Quote of the Day

“The Democrats are going to get beaten badly in November. Not just because the economy is ailing. And not just because Obama overread his mandate in governing too far left. But because a comeuppance is due the arrogant elites whose undisguised contempt for the great unwashed prevents them from conceding a modicum of serious thought to those who dare oppose them.”

– Charles Krauthammer

One can certainly hope so…

Ummmm. Yeah, I think so, too.

Statement From NRA-PVF Chairman
Chris W. Cox On The 2010 Nevada U.S. Senate Race
In the coming days and weeks, the NRA Political Victory Fund (NRA-PVF) will be announcing endorsements and candidate ratings in hundreds of federal races, as well as thousands of state legislative races. Unless these announcements are required by the timing of primary or special elections, the NRA-PVF generally does not issue endorsements while important legislative business is pending. The NRA-PVF also operates under a long-standing policy that gives preference to incumbent candidates who have voted with the NRA on key issues, which is explained in more detail here. After careful consideration, the NRA-PVF announced today that it will not be endorsing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid for re-election in the 2010 U.S. Senate race in Nevada.

EPA Considering Ban on Traditional Ammunition — Take Action Now
August 25, 2010 By Larry Keane

All Gun Owners, Hunters and Shooters:

With the fall hunting season fast approaching, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under Lisa Jackson, who was responsible for banning bear hunting in New Jersey, is now considering a petition by the Center for Biological Diversity (CBD) – a leading anti-hunting organization – to ban all traditional ammunition under the Toxic Substance Control Act of 1976, a law in which Congress expressly exempted ammunition. If the EPA approves the petition, the result will be a total ban on all ammunition containing lead-core components, including hunting and target-shooting rounds. The EPA must decide to accept or reject this petition by November 1, 2010, the day before the midterm elections.

Today, the EPA has opened to public comment the CBD petition. The comment period ends on October 31, 2010.

Interesting Response from a CongressCritter

Watch the video…then let’s discuss:

On the one hand, Russ Carnahan “represents” the 3rd District of Missouri. The Ground Zero Mosque issue is not exactly in his back yard. But it is an incendiary issue that is indeed on the mind of the American public. Congressman Carnahan could have addressed his constituent by saying, “I understand your concern for this issue, however at this time I have no comment. I will issue a position statement as other members of Congress have sometime later this/next week.”

Instead, CongressCritter Carnahan chose to utterly ignore his constituent’s very existence. He repeatedly ignored the questions and proceeded to leave without a “kiss-my-ass” or a “by-your-leave”. Classy. Very classy.

Do the folks that want to build this mosque have a “right” to build it wherever they want? Absolutely, zoning and building permits in place – go for it. Is this the right place to build it? Not so much – like everything else in real estate it’s location, location, location. I have to believe that this location was chosen as a “slap in the face” to the American public and the families that lost loved ones on 9/11/2001 – otherwise there are roughly 72,000 blocks in Manhattan, I’m sure some of them are available.

Oh, and Congressman Carnahan? Man up, and talk to your constituents. A townhall meeting is where you address your constituents’ real concerns and questions – not just your carefully screened question base. I’m just sayin’.
