Timeframe nailed down

I head to Ft. McCoy, WI on April 30th. I head to Ft. Buchana, Puerto Rico on May 5th or 6th.


I'm about to duplicate Kim du Toit's happy dance!

Forward Progress

It looks like I'm finally going to get my orders to Puerto Rico. I'm spending quite a bit of time trying to get a hole of the Personell office in St. Louis, but I recieved an email yesterday that someone is working on my AGR packet.

Hot damn!

I've enjoyed my little stay in Coeur d'Alene, but I hate spinning my wheels.

Oh, THAT liberal media!

Analog Kid has a report on yet another liberal "journalist" with an agenda.

The short short version is this: "EEEK! ANYONE (with no criminal convictions or restraining orders, who doesn’t use any illegal drugs and is not mentally ill, is not buying the firearm for someone who cannot do so legally and is at least 18 years of age. Oh and has a valid ID showing their residence to be in the state where the purchase is taking place) CAN BUY AN AK-47 (of the non-automatic variety)!

My response - SO WHAT?

Being as crime rates are lower in states that have fewer gun laws, let's get those puppies into the hands of private citizens!

OK, I take it back

San Fransisco actually has a purpose. It's the advance party for the Democrats. Don't believe me? Check it out.

Just when you thought the Federal Election Commission had it out for the blogosphere, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors took it up a notch and announced yesterday that it will soon vote on a city ordinance that would require local bloggers to register with the city Ethics Commission and report all blog-related costs that exceed $1,000 in the aggregate.

Blogs that mention candidates for local office that receive more than 500 hits will be forced to pay a registration fee and will be subject to website traffic audits, according to Chad Jacobs, a San Francisco City Attorney.

Do you know what San Fransisco is? San Fran is what happens when the Left gets it's way.

Which is why they're the laughingstock of the country.

But in all honesty, they're working on banning handguns (even as Mayor Newsom proposes putting unarmed fire fighters on street corners to help curb the rising crime rate), they give bums money to live on the street (resulting in public fountains being shut down and closed off due to drug paraphenalia, needles, urine and feces in the water), and now they're going to start banning free speech when possible.

If you want to see the damage that the Left can do, look at San Fransisco.

I hate to say "I told you so"....

but.... I told you so.

Public opposition to "marriages" between homosexuals is at an all-time high, according to a poll released yesterday.
When asked whether they thought same-sex "marriages" should be recognized by the law as valid and come with the same rights as traditional marriages, 68 percent of the respondents in the CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll said they should not.
Twenty-eight percent said same-sex "marriages" should be valid and 4 percent had no opinion. The survey of 443 adults was conducted March 18 to 20.

Why the change? People didn't just wake up one morning and say "Gosh, being gay is wrong!" They didn't have some sudden change of heart brought on by some mysterious force.

They had a change of heart because people in general will push back when someone is trying to jam crap down their throat. People are getting sick and tired of judicial legislation, and the gay marriage bruhah that came up last year and the year before is having significant backlash.

The gay marriage group has shot themselves in the foot. And while they went from court to court, trying to find a judge that would give them the results they wanted, they called any and all who disagreed with their methods all manner of foul names. There's one woman who insults me whenever she sees a comment of mine on Sondra K's blog. All because I told her to not go through the courts.

Only time will tell if they can reverse the damage they caused to their movement.

"Excuse me, Senator Byrd?"

"Please accompany me to the woodshed."

Robert Byrd is indeed a valuable link not only to the Senate's past, but also to the Democratic Party's history as the party of slavery, segregation, and opposition to equal treatment of blacks.
Byrd is old enough, for example, to have vowed memorably regarding the integration of the Armed Forces by President Truman that he would never fight "with a Negro by my side. Rather I should die a thousand times, and see Old Glory trampled in the dirt never to rise again, than to see this beloved land of ours become degraded by race mongrels, a throwback to the blackest specimen from the wilds."
"Right this way, Sir."

Speaking of Rifts


"To win back the White House in 2008, our party must change. We must be willing to discard political strategies that may make us feel good but that keep falling short. We must finally reject the false choice between exciting our base and expanding our appeal, because unless we both motivate and persuade, we'll lose every time," said DLC founder Al From and President Bruce Reed in a new manifesto for their party.

Double Oy!
