Jack is Back!

PD,

Now that is the classic 1911 .45 that puts a nice hole in front and crater in the back.

BTW, interesting stat I heard today. The number of guns owned by Americans are at an all-time high while murder is at an all time low. Coincidence?

Danube of Thought

I've got three of those 1911's. Used to have five. Wonderful stopping power.

PD

Coincidence?

Absolutely. The real reason for the low murder rate is that we're distracted from our normal killing by those appalling outfits Michelle Antoinette wears.

macphisto

Obama always gave me the creeps, right from the beginning. I grew up on the South Side of Chicago in a predominantly black area (if that's not redundant) and O immediately struck me as fake, so artificial he made Mitt Romney look like Iggy Pop, equally crap at acting white and acting black.

Jack is Back!

....those appalling outfits Michelle Antoinette wears.

And somewhere in Chicago a manhunt is underway for a drapery thief.

OT: Carter hospitalized in Cleveland. This could be the October surprise. Build sympathy for the clone of Carter and his party of nabobs.

Jack is Back!


Darn!

Rob Crawford

Hah! It wasn't me this time!

Jack is Back!

someone shut that darn italic off for me:)

Porchlight

LOL. Your assessment is interesting - I remember early in his campaign there was some concern that he wouldn't be "black enough" for African-American voters, but then he started turning on the preacher vernacular, and that slowly faded away.

I've always found chameleon personalities to be creepy.

The only thing remotely sympathetic to me about Obama is that I think he must have been very lonely and miserable as a child, and so I feel sorry for the young Obama. But now - nothing about him appeals to me at all other than that he seems to love his daughters, but that's hardly something anyone deserves special credit for.

Dave (in MA)

OT: Fun discussion http://www.universalhub.com/2010/kitty-dukakis-takes-beer-distributors>over here about the MA question to repeal the extra sales tax on alcoholic beverages. Kitty Dukakis is in the anti camp.

Dave (in MA)

Heh. The captcha string I had to enter to post that link started with 'dt'.

PDinDetroit

No Coincidence at all... A new version of Gun Facts is currently in the works - LUN for current version.

I have always wanted a 1911, so I traded my S&W M&P 45 for it. I was going to hold off for a special 100 year edition, but do not like the offerings shown to date. I didn't like the M&P in 45 ACP as much as I like the M&P 9/9c I have, so it was easy to trade away. This 1911 points like a natural extension of my hand and shoots like a dream.

Happy crash landing to the most despicable candidate in America, bar none.

I dunno, I think Pelosi gives Grayson a run for his money.

Now we have about 90 messages to go before we rid ourselves of the dread italics. So get crackin!

Dave, Dick is "Best friends" with Dukakis (which in Dick speak applies if he met the guy once) so this will be a fun topic on the radio.

Porchlight

Okay, let's get this italic-busting thing going:

NOOOOOO!!!

Break them up in many teeny-tiny messages.

Rob Crawford

PDinDetroit: I'm thinking of getting my CCP, but I have this odd aversion to having too many calibers of ammunition. (Maybe I've read too many military histories that talk about supply problems.) In cool weather, I could probably conceal my XD .45 with a Supertuck, but what can I do in warmer weather?!

Dave (in MA)

You won't see any extra italics in Chrome.

PD

Well, we are certainly honored. This is the first visit to Madison by a sitting president since 1950.

Unprecedented! Historical!

Jane, how surprising that the ex-lush wife of Mr. Illegal-Happy-Hours is in favor of redundant booze taxation.

macphisto

"The only thing remotely sympathetic to me about Obama is that I think he must have been very lonely and miserable as a child, and so I feel sorry for the young Obama."

that's a very good point which i'm kind of ashamed to say i hadn't ever considered. when i think about it, this may account for some of his weird lack of emotional affect...he "went inside," so to speak, when he was young and never came out again. which, disquietingly, means that there's probably several breakdowns' worth of psychological train-wreckage in there. ulp.

Jack is Back!

You know some people like Christine O'Donnell are unfit to serve in the senate. Like who you ask? LUN

Porch saysBut now - nothing about him appeals to me at all other than that he seems to love his daughters, but that's hardly something anyone deserves special credit for.

That really struck me funny because at the height of the Watergate mess, my Mom, a rock-ribbed Republican, defended RN by telling one of my liberal friends, "well he must be a good man because he raised two lovely daughters". She was dead serious, God rest her soul. In her eyes there was no greater calling than parenthood.

Safari also. Installed Chrome and it's taken over both of my email accounts.
Cannot figure out how to un-install it...

If you italicize italics does it become normal? I think not.

These people are morons. Altho I am on the edge of CT I'm only about an hour from NH. But nooooooooooooooooooooo, it's all about Mrs. Dukakis attaching her addictive morality to the rest of us.

I am so sick of it.

BTW there is another thread to mess up./

Bill in AZ sez it's time for Zero to resign

PDinDetroit - your latest in your collection is a fine choice. I have the same one, along with a Springfield Pro, a couple of EMP's in 9mm for when full size just won't work, and a "few" others, mostly 1911's.

Charlie (Colorado)

"All those who really believe in what we've been doing, should get out and vote. No excuses."

That should probably be rephrased "Both of you".

Pagar

It's not Andy Stern directly, but the union stuff is getting way past "California has paid scores of criminals to care for residents
The rules of the state's home healthcare program, as interpreted by a judge this year, permit such felons to work as aides. Among their crimes are rape, assault and theft."
.

"SEIU is consistently one of the biggest donors to the Democrats who dominate the Legislature, contributing millions of dollars to political committees that the state Democratic Party and its leaders use to win legislative seats, register voters and even fund lawmaker retreats.

Members' wages from the home aide program provide millions of dollars in dues revenue that the union can use to fund such operations.


How can we have allowed our nation to get to the point where these gangsters run every thing?

PDinDetroit

I have this odd aversion to having too many calibers of ammunition.

For EDC (Every Day Carry), I went with the 9mm platform (S&W M&P 9 for OC and 9c for CC). The 9mm Platform supports NATO 9mm, which is a standard military caliber and far cheaper to stock "appropriately" if SHTF. I find the recoil/follow-up shots easier to manage and like the higher capacity mags (17 and 12 respectively). I run Winchester SXT or Speer Gold Dots in 9mm +p, which has plenty of knock-down power. The holsters I have for OC and CC fit both of these firearms, although the 9c is far easier to conceal.

Although probably not for everyone, I Open Carry (OC) as it is easier for me to do so. You can check LUN for information State-by-State.

Jane (sit on the couch or save your country)

Stern under investigation for 150k in fees paid by SEIU to some prison bound local leader.

How soon will the pardon come?

Porchlight

In her eyes there was no greater calling than parenthood.

Well, in a sense I think your mom was right, in that parents should receive credit for *raising* good kids. For example I am no fan of the Clintons, but Chelsea seems a good sort and so I think they should get some credit for that, as being First Parents (or First Daughter) can't be easy.

Simply loving one's kids, however, isn't particularly special, as the vast majority of parents manage it. But if Sasha and Malia turn out to be as nice as Chelsea, the Bush twins, and other charming Presidential offspring, I will give the Obamas full credit.

Interesting btw how many Presidents and Presidential candidates in recent years have had only daughters...the Clintons, the Gores, the Bushes, John Kerry, the Obamas.

MayBee

" She was dead serious, God rest her soul. In her eyes there was no greater calling than parenthood."

I agree that there's no greater calling than parenthood. But some of our greatest Presidents have raised fairly dysfunctional families.
One has nothing to do with the other, and I would love it if we could somehow get over the selling of the President as family man.

But with Obama's new childrens' book out and his daughters on the cover, I don't think we are headed there yet.

Jane (sit on the couch or save your country)


Chelsea seems a good sort

People who know here say she is as narcissistic as her father. Everything is about her.

I wonder if Obama would say these officers in Madison acted "stupidly"? LUN.

Ahh, I didn't know that, Jane. Oh well, so much for my theory! ;)

Ranger, the book deal didn't take down Foley, unless he wrote chapters about emailing ex-congressional pages.

Gingrich had a book deal.

Rick Ballard

OL,

You have to put the store of wealth accumulated in 401ks on the other side of the scale from the 50% who are not currently taxed on earnings. The real Treasury of the United States is in the hands of the fastest growing demographic cohort, the +65s, and the parasites really are going to have to pry it from cold, dead fingers.

Howard Dean understood the demographics when he sold the Democrat Party to the commie scum in '05. I believed he assumed a basic level of competence on the part of the commies which they have never demonstrated in their entire miserably pathetic existence. He knew that if the commies didn't grab the brass ring in '08 they wouldn't have another chance until beyond 2020.

I don't deny the fact that the parasites will try and vote themselves fat at every opportunity. I'll still put my money on those capable of accumulating wealth being able to protect it.

It was Jim Wright who had the crooked book deal with the unions, no?

Unexpected:

Washington - Confidence among U.S. consumers fell in September to the lowest level in seven months as Americans became more pessimistic about the labor market. The Conference Board’s confidence index declined to 48.5, lower than forecast, from 53.2 the prior month.

The Dead Just Keep On Voting

...Every two years, states must report to the federal Election Assistance Commission (EAC) information about the integrity and accuracy of their voter rolls. The latest report is not good news for our democracy – or our international reputation. South Dakota, Texas, Kentucky, Mississippi and Indiana report in excess of a dozen counties with more registered voters than breathing human beings old enough to vote.
PD

Parenthood is indeed a high calling, but it doesn't excuse malfeasance in other areas.

I too credit to Obama for his affection for his daughters. It seems to be perhaps the one unaffected thing about him. But this in no way diminishes my loathing and disgust for his politics.

Clarice

Actually, Rick, both parties ought to do some serious work on forcing the giant charitable organizations to spend down (domestically) the billions they've amassed tax free for that very purpose. At the moment outfits like Ford and Rockefeller and Pew are sitting on mountains of assets with virtually no oversight and no need to use it on anything exept keeping their officers in fat city forever.

Captain Hate

Some great comments amidst the italics; especially the Iggy Pop/Mitt one.

I thought Kitty Dukakis was dead; or was that just her liver.

Jim Wright had the book deal with the union reading groups that did him in.

Driving around today in the early afternoon reminded me of why I'm a Tam. You all know my opinion of Rush but Dennis Prager sounds like a whiny version of Bennett, taking forever to get to the point but doing it with an annoying voice.

Chelsea: Ugh.

Frau Oma

"I will give the Obamas full credit."

Perhaps, it's Grammy Robinson who should get the credit. She was sharing their care back in Chicago when Michelle had a personal trainer (4X a week) *and* other home help. Mrs. Robinson is in the WH, and we know it's not to help Michelle pick out her clothing.

daddy the "Extremist"

Perhaps it is simply years of waiting on tables, where one develops a sense of quickly reading people, figuring out if they are friendly or fun or pain's in the arse or want to be left alone, etc, but Obama struck me as a phony, self-important snot very early on, and the type of guy I would hate to have had to wait tables on.

Chubby

OL

A lot of people who pay tax are stupid about government. I know some. I think voters should have to pass a test proving that they understand what they are doing by voting. It would be a shame to deprive someone who understands their government from voting and to let an ignoramus who has no clue what they're doing vote, no matter how much tax they pay.

Rob Crawford

Although probably not for everyone, I Open Carry (OC) as it is easier for me to do so. You can check LUN for information State-by-State.

OC would cause too much pants-wetting, even here in deep-red SW Ohio. I'd love to do it, and have a decent holster for it, but...

Maybe I should just get over my aversion. 9mm looks like it's about 1/3rd cheaper than .45, in better supply, and I could get an XD 9mm sub-compact. Yeah, I'm stuck on the XDs -- easy to maintain, comfortable to shoot.

PD

You folks proposing a test other than citizenship for voting should consider what would happen should the Democrats be the ones to decide what the test would be.

PDinDetroit

OC would cause too much pants-wetting...

You would be surprised, 75-90% of the persons I encounter daily don't even notice I carry openly. Those who do notice ask questions about it and have no real issues. In Michigan, Open Carry has become pretty much a non-issue as the Police Departments have been provided information and training about it.

Pagar

From the dead just keep on voting LINK

"Democrats seem to be suspiciously inept at cleaning out the rolls. The Ohio Secretary of State is not at all anxious about the fact that nearly 5,800 departed Ohioans are still registered to vote"

IMO, one of the things complicating the matter is that voters who move over seas are registered and vote using their last state side address. I have no idea how this is resolved on the voter rolls. Does anyone else know how election offices can keep track of such things?

Chubby

PD that scary thought did cross my mind.

Clarice

It's Seiu's day in the spotlight..

Remember this just was reported earlier this week:
Service Employees International Union (SEIU) member Steve Caddle of Houston, Texas has been caught registering 23,207 fake voters in Harris County alone due to the hard detective work of Catherine Engelbrecht and her “True the Vote” project.

Jane (sit on the couch or save your country)


I think the next president should ban unions - in a regulatory move requiring no oversight. It would serve them right.

Old Lurker

OK Chubby, I will accept your addition of "passing a civics test" as a friendly ammendment to my "one vote per dollar of taxes paid" resolution.

Rick, don't forget those who would nationalize 401(k) assets and substitute SS Notes in their stead. (I realize you are all over those stories).

Clarice, several folks on both sides (incl Grassley if I am not mistaken) have in fact suggested non profits either spend it or send it to Uncle Sam through changes to the tax code. Huge opposition to that of course, and from those who guard the banks for the liberal elites.

Jack is Back!

Jane,

If you have a POTUS with cajones or a 30.06 hockey stick they could stare down the SEIU and Federal unions like Reagan did with the Air Traffic Controllers. The public pension system is going to be a big shoe when it drops and even Chris Christie knows there is not much he can do about it unless the electorate back him to the hilt. There will be blood in the streets before we the public unions ween themselves from the overly gracious wage, benefit and pension packages they have. Note I have tried to not use the verb earn.

OL,

I would love to see a sunset provision for the great malefactors spreading the progressive social disease. A world without the Pew or Ford foundations would be a brighter, cleaner place.

Clarice

I know, OL. I even drafted a suggested change in the law but got no buyers. We are talking about trillions of dollars. I am willing to make exceptions for charities which exit only to sustain single named institutions--a school, a hospital, etc--but the broad based ones need to be checked, seriously checked.

Nah. Appoint a "czar" (not confirmed by the Senate) who bans the unions.
Clarice

Over the last 40 years these charities have been up to no good. Imagine getting tax exemptions to fund rap like the Durban council, including paying Africans to learn how to hate the US and Israel?

Or the outrageous Tides money laundering outfits that Fenton started?
Or the Pew work to get passed an unconstitutional restriction on campaigns?
