I tried to watch his speech on You Tube, but it was so damned boring I just couldn't finish. During the little bit that I did watch, I kept hoping that they'd occasionally cut to a couple of grumpy old men in the balcony who would mock and laugh at him. (How about Dick Cheney and Fred Thompson?) No such luck. I had to read the transcript instead of watching, in order to stay awake.
Kermit, I mean, Jim did make a few good points. Bashing the Republicans he said, "And the party historically anchored in fiscal restraint has nearly doubled the national debt[...]." Very true Jim! But I don't see how respect for fiscal restraint would drive you into the arms of the Democrats who've never even pretended to give a crap about it. Jim also blamed this increased debt on Bush's tax cuts, not the obscene spending increases. Wrongo!
The Democrats followed up on this ribbiting... I mean riveting speech with a 10-minute silent closeup of a warm bowl of oatmeal slowly congealing. Good television! If Jim ever gets on national television again, I hope he spices it up by singing "Rainbow Connection" or something.
In other news this week: Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain announced their picks for vice president. Balancing their respective tickets Obama and McCain both picked V.P.s that are what they are not. Obama picked an old, white man and McCain picked a conservative Republican.

OF COURSE, I should have known what the response from the Loony Left would be. I saw a particularly odious article about this small town struggling to “survive its ordeal”, so I delved further into the coverage of the event, and found it par for the course. The Usual Suspects…the Drive-By Mainstream Media, the perpetually outraged professional “protestors”, the snooty “elite” of Academia, and the rest of the Left-Wing nut cases who search the world around them for something to be offended by…were all whining like a bitch dog in heat. They are trying to portray this simple and long overdue Immigration raid as the greatest genocide since Hitler and Pol Pot.
So, since they seem to be incapable of wrapping their warped little minds around reality and are impervious to their own inconsistencies, allow me to point out the pontificating Socialists’ hypocrisy.
The same fear-mongering weenies of the Thought Police who wipe their butt with the Constitution and would have the very thoughts inside someone’s head criminalized and prosecuted as “hate crimes” don’t think that folks ought to be arrested for identity theft or Federal Immigration violations. Some animals are more equal than others. They also forgot to mention that many of the stolen/fake ID’s came from Agriprocessor’s own human resources department. There was even a meth lab operating at the packing plant, but I guess as long as Hassidic Jews and ILLEGALS are cooking the meth, it’s kosher, pardon the pun.
The sniveling Commies who detest Capitalism and would like to see oil company executives burned at the stake swoon over Agriprocessors and how they are the “savior” of the economy of Northeast Iowa. The lying liberals who pretend to stand for the working man and back unions weren’t to be found when Agriprocessors were stone-walling and fighting the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. Agriprocessors even took their case against the unions to Federal court, saying their employees couldn’t join the union or vote because they were ILLEGAL. Then there’s the subminimum wages that the original citizens of Postville could not afford to work for because they represented a pay cut from the already feeble job market in the area. Sucks to be you, Mr. American working man, we’ll bring in some ILLEGAL slave labor for the subminimum jobs you “can’t or won’t do.”
Then there are the fern-feelin’, flower-sniffin’ bunny’huggin’ Gaia worshippers who hang on every word of the Goracle, the same wacko tree-huggers who killed the American logging industry, untold family businesses and small towns all over the Northwest to save a stinking owl (90% of which, by the way, according to field surveys, did not nest in Old Growth forests anyway). These eco-weenies sure weren’t too concerned when Agri-Proccessors was dumping all kinds of nasty stuff, including 40,000 gallons of turkey blood, into the scenic and beautiful Yellow River, resulting in massive fish die-offs, or contaminating the ground water, or dumping other wastes, or violating state environmental regulations, or paying $600,000 in fines to the EPA.
The self flagellating hanky-twisters who would tax or outlaw everything in the country “for the children” and would confiscate everyone’s guns if “it saves just one child” (well, except for the unborn children; they don’t count) threw a hissy fit over La Migra “breaking up poor families” but didn’t utter a peep when Agri-Processors was violating child labor laws. The same wild-eyed slobberers who are berating ICE for their “cruel and inhumane” treatment of the ILLEGALS were not to be found while Agriprocessors were guilty of physically abusing their slave labor, as well as violating other labor and food safety laws.
I read a piece from one bile-spewing Leftist kook who was belly aching about how the money spent on the immigration busts could have been better spent on providing the ILLEGALS with universal health care and better education. I got news for you, Socialist bimbette, they already get free health care and education, at tax-payer expense, while in the process of swamping, bankrupting and ruining local medical facilities, schools, and law enforcement at the expense of the local American CITIZENS.
I hear tell we are not even supposed to call them ILLEGALS anymore. They tell me that’s a racist term now and we need to call them Undocumented Workers. Yeah, right. And a drug dealer is an Unlicensed Pharmacist.
So, my take on the whole deal is that if you are an ILLEGAL in this country and you don’t like the treatment you receive for breaking our laws, don’t let the door hit you in butt on the way out. But if the Loony Left gets its way, terrorists and ILLEGALS will have more rights than the ordinary American citizen who's supposed to be protected by the Constitution.

Throughout history, the American government has found it nearly impossible
to spend only what has been raised through taxes. Wielding candid interviews
with both average American taxpayers and government officials, Sundance
veteran Patrick Creadon (Wordplay) helps demystify the
nation's financial practices and policies. The film follows former U.S.
Comptroller General David
Walker as he crisscrosses the country explaining America's unsustainable
fiscal policies to its citizens.

“Do you want our government to have the ability to track where you went,Out on the dusty Mainstreet, Homeland Security Gruppenfuhrer Michael Chertov, resplendent in his monocle and spit shined jackboots, has once again faced down Montana Governor Brian Schwietzer, wearing his bolo tie and with his faithful cow dog at his side.
how you went, how you got there and when you got home? It would be naive for someone to
think this information will not be abused in the future. Virtually every decade
these kinds of files have been used to violate people’s privacy.”-- Brian
Schweitzer, Governor of Montana
Governor Schwietzer wrote the Gruppenfuhrer a letter stating that Montana would not comply with the odious Federal REAL ID Act, which would do absolutely nothing to close our porous borders as recommended by the 911 Commission, but, on the other hand, would allow Big Brother to see Winston, or any other citizen, writing in his tiny alcove. It will do nothing against terrorism, but it will sure keep us peasants in line.
Chertov called Schwietzer in response and said, "Vait till I get my chip implanted in YOUR forehead, Enemy-of-the-State! Ve vill see how cocky you are in das cooler!" Or words to that effect. He said Montanans would be ostracized, banned from airline flights, and subject to even more arbitrary and invasive TSA inspections than they are now. Like TSA isn't already enough of a joke and home for wanna-be baby dictators while contributing absolutely nothing to national security.
The Governor countered with his own threat, “How about we both go on 60
Minutes a few days after the DHS starts patting down Montana driver’s
license-holders who are trying to get on the planes and both of us can tell our
side of the story.”
At present, the only "solution" or "compromise" offered has been for Big Brother to grandiosely "extend the deadline" until the peasants decide to toe the line, or someone more easier to browbeat and manipulate gets in office.
In addition to the obvious threats to our free society, the risk of ever more sophisticated ID thieves mining information from the new REAL ID is a serious problem as well. The Fed is not known for their brilliant ability to keep information secure, not when VA, USDA, and even FBI files have all been hacked. Imagine some hacker cracking the into your all-encompassing REAL ID and gaining access to all your personal information in one fell swoop. Might as well kiss your credit rating good bye and go live in a cave while it gets "straightened out".
So far, Montana's DEMOCRATIC governor and two DEMOCRATIC Senators have actively resisted the REAL ID act while our one lone REPUBLICAN Representative has whined for us to play nice with Big Brother.
If you have not contacted your own Congresscritters to protest this piece of...legislation, now's the time. A few more governors around the country are starting to dig their heels in on the issue as well. Let your duly erected reprehensivitives know what you think about this invasion of personal privacy with all its risks of abuse and identity theft.
If not, see you in the gulag!

First the government banned citizens from carrying guns past the security checkpoints in airports and even most gun advocates didn't squawk too much. (Although there's 2,974 dead 9-11 victims that might question that policy if we could ask them.) Now the TSA wants to ban concealed-carry even in the unsecured areas of airports. So a duly-licensed concealed weapons permit holder who picks up or drops off a family member at the airport may run afoul of federal regulations, even if he is just standing on the curb out front.
Gun Owners of America is working on President Bush to reign in the TSA. You can help here.
When the U.S. Supreme Court recently struck down Washington D.C.'s onerous handgun ban, saying that the Second Amendment protects an individual right, the DC city council responded by telling the Supreme Court to stick it. The city council passed a new law that bans many handguns and requires that weapons be stored in ways that won't allow them to be used for self-defense and in general keeps lawful gun owners in the capitol as scarce as hen's teeth.
Some Republican and Democrat congress-critters have introduced The "Second Amendment Enforcement Act" which will help unscrew the law-abiding folks of DC. You can read more about it here.
The rising cost of materials has caused the price of ammunition to soar. Prices are so high that Bawb and I have to be pretty selective about who we shoot or don't shoot these days, so if we seem irritable we apologize.

"Our goal is to see a crowd of 75,000 people at Obama's nomination speech
holding their hands above their heads, fingers laced together in support of a
new direction for this country, a renewed hope, and acceptance of responsibility
for our future," says Rick Husong.
"We thought, 'Let's try and start a movement where even while walking down
the street, people would hold up the O and you would know that they were for
"We want to see it everywhere, but more importantly we want this sign to
take the world by storm."
This kind of blind, fanatical devotion to a "leader" has always been a recipe for disaster. Anyone else remember the last time a world leader relied upon a cult of personality and had his own salute, which was emulated by cheering crowds of thousands and literally tried to "take the world by storm"? No, I'm not trying to say Obama in any way equates to Hitler, but both personalities sure led blind, unthinking packs of cheering, devoted Socialist followers around by the nose in the name of "change".

August 1 and 2 mark the sixty-second anniversary of the Battle of Athens, Tennessee, and we here at Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership intend to observe it. And we're asking you to join us.
On those dates in 1946, residents of McMinn County, most of them recently-returned veterans of World War II, took guns in hand and rose up against a corrupt and brutal administration they'd been trying to get the state's authorities to do something about for years -- to no avail. Voting didn't help because the county elections -- and ballot boxes -- were controlled by the very criminals they were trying to dislodge.
What followed was a prime example of the reason America's Founding Fathers sought to protect the right of the individual to own and carry weapons. Without their guns, the citizens would have been nothing but helpless peasants, serfs, peons -- just like most of humanity over the last six thousand years -- ground under the thumbs of well-armed local racketeers.

Next time that some victim disarmament advocate argues that the Second Amendment -- and the rights and hardware it protects -- are outmoded, outdated, and obsolete, you'll have something to tell them about.

HUSSEIN: My friends and neighbors, we are facing a monumental chance for change here today. And change is hope, and hope is our future. Because without modulation, we cannot have change, and without change there is no hope, and hope brings assurance, and assurance solidifies our future...
CNN: Swoon! He must truly be the Second Coming! He is so wonderful!
HUSSEIN: I promise you today that as your hope for future change I will be extremely vague and amorphous in my definitions of change, hope, or even future. In this manner we, as Americans, can all work together as one, since this great sweeping promise of reassurance is sufficiently indistinct to allow each and every one of you to believe it means whatever it is that you wish to believe at this moment and, more importantly, when you vote in November...
CBS: Katie just came in her pants and passed out!
Just as our forefathers, and their forefathers before them, came to this country seeking hope...and change...to ensure themselves and their posterity a future of faith...and innovation...today we are here to proudly proclaim that...
MSNBC: I wet myself! Oh My God! He truly is the Messiah!
(TELEPROMPTER BREAKS DOWN AT THIS POINT)
HUSSEIN: And the um...well...the...you know...hope...and the...chickens...then we must...future...grapefruit...um...and...important...well...change...this...uh...liver spot...
CNN/CBS/MSNBC: We now interrupt this broadcast to take you to important breaking news in Lima, Ohio where the finalists in the Little Foofy Dogs Dressed Up Like Celebrities Contest are now arriving on stage....
