I saw Michelle Malkin on the Today show this morning and then I saw that she was on Glen Beck too! She is out promoting her book Culture of Corruption and all I can say is this girl is a firecracker! When I saw her this morning she was being interviewed by Matt Lauer. He was behoved by her passion and ability to have an answer for any question that he had of her. By the look on his face he wasn't thrilled by what she was saying. I'm sure he had some words with the producer after the interview was over.
Anyway. I wanted to post the Glen Beck Interview and post a link to the today show interview to see if i could drum up a little chit chat about what you think.
Plus she is a little hottie. She can talk all she wants.
So it seems that our stimulus money has finally shown up in our wonderful city that cant afford to pay for public services. Guess what Columbus? We may get citywide Wi-Fi!
Of course we will have to pay for access. Here is a quote from the article in the Columbus Dispatch.
"We're having real good reliability," said Grant Reveal, director of Gahanna's Technology Department. Once the fiber and wireless technology was in place, using the network wasn't difficult, he said. "We're seeing a huge return on the investment."
I'm sure the HUGE return is being returned to the consumer in reduced rates.
That being said. Open your wallets! We now have something else we MUST have and CANT live without.
Who needs Police and Fire protection anyway? Oh wait. We will pay for that too.
New Jersey is about to limit handgun purchases for dealers and individuals to 1 per month according to Attorney Evan Nappen's interpretation of the proposed legislation. As a result, once dealers sell their inventory, you will no longer be able to purchase handguns in New Jersey. The proposed legislation will have the effect of putting all gun dealers our of business and their employees will loose their jobs.
Evan has put the legislation on notice of this for over a year but the bill has not been modified to correct for this oversight. Some believe it is an oversight, others believe that it is intentional.
This bill seems to violate the commerce clause and the Heller decision by the Supreme Court last year. If passed it will undoubtedly be challenged on a constitutional basis.

I've been reading Pete's posts for a while and even though he is an AK loving blogger (coming to the AR dark side) dont let it discourage you from reading his posts. He seems to have his ducks in a row. Especially on this one.....
Please click on the picture for the easy to understand conceptual diagram the Democrats in Congress and Whitehouse have for your new health care plan. This explains everything. I never realized how simple it was!
So...I heard the funniest thing on the radio today. It seems that our elected politicians have passed legislation mandating that our kids wear bike helmets.
Not only have they found time to pass a RIDICULOUS LAW , apparently the Columbus Fire Department is going to be GIVING AWAY FREE BIKE HELMETS!!!!WOO FREAKIN HOOO!!!
Last time I checked.... Columbus has a special election issue on the ballet this quarter asking for an income tax increase so that they can pay the Firefighters AND Police Officers! So answer me this..... Why are we giving away bike helmets all the while wasting time AND taxpayer money on frivolous legislation, when we can't even seem to pay our own Civil Service Workers? Not only that, but there are PLENTY of people who work in Columbus, but do not live in Franklin County.
Seeing how they don't live there, they don't even have the opportunity to vote on the matter! I guess the little man doesn't have a voice anymore. Even if they contribute to the local economy. Who cares right?
Doesn't anyone that we elect have any common sense about them? Or is it all about them? I can't help but feel that,sadly enough, it is the latter. They all need to be fired.
Any comments are welcome. I'm always looking for a different point of view.
Here is a few pics of my collection. It is still a work in progress, but then again what isn't!
Here is my Taurus PT-845
Here is my Beretta 92FS Onix
My Ruger GP100 revolver
These are (From top to bottom) Franchi I-12 Diamond Semi-auto 12ga. Shotgun 1943 Russian SKS 1942 German Kar98k 8mm Smith & Wesson M&P 15 W/ Magpul BUS, CQC stock, Vortex StrikeFire red dot(not in pic),and UTG quad rail w/ vertical grip...Yes I went cheap on the quad-rail. I couldn't bring myself to spend buckets of money and a rail system.
Below that on the left is an OLD Iver Johnson .32 top break and to the right is a Harrington and Richardson .22 top break revolver.
my 1944 Mosin Nagant M-44
And last but not least this is the gun that started the whole obsession with firearms, the first one i ever bought, my Benelli Nova 12ga.pump shotgun.
There are more to come too. I wouldn't mind getting a bullpup type gun. Also an AK is in order but the prices have to come down. I'm sure the Taliban doesnt pay $500+ for an AK. Besides I need to learn about the different variants of AK before I decide!
I have been tooling around on YouTube and I came across this video. There is allot of stuff out there about gun control and Obama. Its really hard to know what to believe any more. Everyone has their own agenda. The right and the left. WHAT HAPPENED TO THE MIDDLE?
I saw this on one of the blogs I follow, but I cant recall which one. I may entertain getting one of these for a few reasons.
I have an SKS and I have noticed that it is really heavy in the front. If it was a bullpup design it would bring that front weight closer to the body making it more comfortable.
Another reason is you can attach a scope on a regular SKS but it has to be put on the rear bolt cover. So when you clean it you have to remove the scope. I never checked to see if it held zero but I imagine if you take that cover off, the cover wont reinstall in the exact spot you zeroed it to. So the accessory rail on the bullpup furniture would be helpful in that regard.
The last reason it because i would really like to have a bullpup firearm but i don't want to plunk down $2000+ to get one.
Here's a video of the Bullpup SKS operated by a dork who thinks that a fabric screen will offer some kind of protection. I love how they show him running to the screen a few time at different camera angles as if hes in the middle of the shit. LOOK OUT HE'S GONNA GIT YA!
Although a Steyr AUG would be cool as hell to have too!! Please pardon the narration. I dont know what the hell he is saying but the video is nice! It also sounds kinda cool. "Bla bla bla bla Steyr AUSHEE"
I got this off a blog called "Bring the Heat, Bring the Stupid"
Rules of Combat We’ve seen a lot of discussion the last few years about the law of war, but not a lot about the rules of war. Well, here you go:
1. Friendly fire – isn’t. 2. Recoilless rifles – aren’t. 3. Suppressive fires – won’t. 4. You are not Superman; Marines and fighter pilots take note. 5. A sucking chest wound is Nature’s way of telling you to slow down. 6. If it’s stupid but it works, it isn’t stupid. 7. Try to look unimportant; the enemy may be low on ammo. 8. If at first you don’t succeed, call in an air strike. 9. If you are forward of your position, your artillery will fall short. 10. Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself. 11. Never go to bed with anyone crazier than yourself. 12. Never forget that your weapon was made by the lowest bidder. 13. If your attack is going really well, it’s an ambush. 14. The enemy diversion you’re ignoring is their main attack. 15. The enemy invariably attacks on two occasions: a. When they’re ready. b. When you’re not. 16. No OPLAN ever survives initial contact. 17. Ther is no such thing as a perfect plan. 18. Five-second fuses always burn three seconds. 19. There is no such thing as an atheist in a foxhole. 20. A retreating enemy is probably just falling back and regrouping. 21. The important things are always simple. 22. The simple are always hard. 23. The easy way is always mined. 24. Teamwork is essential; it gives the enemy other people to shoot at. 25. Never draw fire; it irritates everyone around you. 26. If you are short of everything but the enemy, you are in the combat zone. 27. When you have secured the area, make sure the enemy knows it too. 28. Incoming fire has the right of way. 29. No combat ready unit has ever passed inspection. 30. No inspection ready unit has ever passed combat. 31. If the enemy is within range, so are you. 32. The only thing more accurate than incoming enemy fire is incoming friendly fire. 33. Things which must be shipped together as a set, aren’t. 34. Things that must work together, can’t be carried to the field that way. 35. Radios will fail as soon as you need fire support. 36. Radar tends to fail at night and in bad weather, and especially during both. 37. Anything you do can get you killed, including nothing. 38. Make it too tough for the enemy to get in, and you won’t be able to get out. 39. Tracers work both ways. 40.

B-52s are the ultimate close support weapon. 52. Sniper’s motto: reach out and touch someone. 53. Killing for peace is like screwing for virginity. 54. The one item you need is always in short supply. 55. Interchangeable parts aren’t. 56. It’s not the one with your name on it; it’s the one addressed “to whom it may concern” you’ve got to think about. 57. When in doubt, empty your magazine. 58. The side with the simplest uniforms wins. 59. Combat will occur on the ground between two adjoining maps. 60. If the Platoon Sergeant can see you, so can the enemy. 61. Never stand when you can sit, never sit when you can lie down, never stay awake when you can sleep. 62. A bad ride is better than a good walk. 63. The most dangerous thing in the world is a Second Lieutenant with a map and a compass. 64. Exceptions prove the rule and destroy the battle plan. 65. Everything always works in your HQ, everything always fails in the Colonel’s HQ. 66. The enemy never watches until you make a mistake. 67. One enemy soldier is never enough, but two is entirely too many. 68. A clean (and dry) uniform is a magnet for mud and rain. 69. The worse the weather, the more you are required to be out in it. 70. Whenever you have plenty of ammo, you never miss. Whenever you are low on ammo, you can’t hit the broad side of a barn. 71.

When reviewing the radio frequencies that you just wrote down, the most important ones are always illegible. 79. Those who hesitate under fire usually do not end up KIA or WIA. 80. The tough part about being a leader is that the troops don’t know what they want, but they know for certain what they don’t want. 81. To steal information from a person is called plagiarism. To steal information from the enemy is called gathering intelligence. 82. The weapon that usually jams when you need it the most is the M240B. 83. The perfect officer for the job will transfer in the day after that billet is filled by someone else. 84. When you have sufficient supplies & ammo, the enemy takes 2 weeks to attack. When you are low on supplies & ammo the enemy decides to attack that night. 85. The newest and least experienced soldier will usually be awarded the Medal of Honor. 86. A Purple Heart just proves that were you smart enough to think of a plan, stupid enough to try it, and lucky enough to survive. 87. Beer Math –> 2 beers times 37 men equals 49 cases. 88. Body count Math –> 3 guerrillas plus 1 probable plus 2 pigs equals 37 enemies killed in action. 89. The bursting radius of a hand grenade is always one foot greater than your jumping range. 90. All-weather close air support doesn’t work in bad weather. 91. The crucial round is a dud. 92. There is no such place as a convenient foxhole. 93. Don’t ever be the first, don’t ever be the last and don’t ever volunteer to do anything. 94. If your positions are firmly set and you are prepared to take the enemy assault on, he will bypass you. 95. If your ambush is properly set, the enemy won’t walk into it. 96. If your flank march is going well, the enemy expects you to outflank him. 97. Density of fire increases proportionally to the curiousness of the target. 98. Odd objects attract fire – never lurk behind one. 99. Odd objects attract fire. You are odd. 100. The more stupid the leader is, the more important missions he is ordered to carry out. 101. The self-importance of a superior is inversely proportional to his position in the hierarchy (as ishis deviousness and mischievousness). 102. There is always a way, and it usually doesn’t work. 103. Success occurs when no one is looking, failure occurs when the General is watching. 104. The enemy never monitors your radio frequency until you broadcast on an unsecured channel. 105. Whenever you drop your equipment in a fire-fight, your ammo and grenades always fall the farthest away, and your canteen always lands at your feet. 106. As soon as you are served hot chow in the field, it rains. 107. Never tell the Platoon Sergeant you have nothing to do. 108. The seriousness of a wound (in a fire-fight) is inversely proportional to the distance to any form of cover. 109. Walking point = sniper bait. 110. Your bivouac for the night is the spot where you got tired of marching that day. 111. If only one solution can be found for a field problem, then it is usually a stupid solution. 112. What gets you promoted from one rank gets you killed in the next rank. 113. If orders can be misunderstood they will be. 114. Your mortar barrage will put exactly one round on the intended target. That round will be a dud. 115. The weight of your equipment is proportional to the time you have been carrying it. 116. If you need an officer in a hurry take a nap. 117. The quartermaster has only two sizes, too large and too small. 118. When a front line soldier overhears two General Staff officers conferring, he has fallen back too far. 119. If at first you don’t succeed, then bomb disposal probably isn’t for you. 120. Any ship can be a minesweeper . . . once. 121. Whenever you lose contact with the enemy, look behind you. 122.
