    Every reference I see of Bill Clinton and Monica reminds me of this image of him posing with porn stars in Monaco. It had to have been planned ahead of time – at least by the women. Why else would the redhead wear a blue dress with a strategically placed white doodad on it.

    Does the dress look photoshopped?

    So, 200K+ jobs added in February.
    Anyone want to lay odds on how many of those jobs are related to firearms & ammunition manufacturing?
    Unintended consequences indeed.

    The Pine Tree Flag in the banner…

    The Tree Flag (or Appeal to Heaven Flag) was one of the flags used during the American Revolution. The flag, featuring a pine tree flag with the motto “An Appeal to God,” or, more usually, “An Appeal to Heaven,” was used originally by a squadron of six cruisers commissioned under George Washington’s authority as commander in chief of the Continental Army in October 1775.

  7. R.D. Walker says:

    An Appeal to God…

    The phrase “Appeal to Heaven” is used multiple times by John Locke in his work, Two Treatises of Government. The phrase connotes that after all other alternatives of seeking justice have been exhausted, only an “appeal to heaven” remains:

    β€œWhat is my Remedy against a Robber, that so broke into my House? Appeal to the Law for Justice. But perhaps Justice is denied, or I am crippled and cannot stir, robbed and have not the means to do it. If God has taken away all means of seeking remedy, there is nothing left but patience. But my Son, when able, may seek the Relief of the Law, which I am denied: He or his Son may renew his Appeal, till he recover his Right. But the Conquered, or their Children, have no Court, no Arbitrator on Earth to appeal to. Then they may appeal, as Jephtha did, to Heaven, and repeat their Appeal, till they have recovered the native Right of their Ancestors, which was to have such a Legislative over them, as the Majority should approve, and freely acquiesce in.”

      There were several “Pine Tree Flags” it’s worth your time to look them up on the internet. The Bunker Hill Flag combines the Pine tree with the Gadsen flag. I had to look these up in my 8YO grandson’s flag history book.

      I had to order a copy of the Two Treatises; my daughter wanted to read it.

      Our library system (linked thru the entire county and not a small county either) didn’t even list the book, much less possess it.

      But my local library does carry 4 copies of 50 Shades of Grey.

    Shooting RC Planes with Machine Guns at the October,2010 Big Sandy Shoot near Wikieup, Arizona. It’s 9:33 of gunfire. Obviously before ammunition was so hard to get.

    “We managed to run through 1500 reactive targets and 38 planes. The airplanes didn’t stand a chance as everyone’s Triple A capabilities were awesome. I do not remember any of the airplanes making it through more than 6 passes with most of them getting shot down in 2 or 3. The night flying was real cool to watch and presented a problem for our pilot to see his plane as most of the tracer fire was green and the lights on the planes were green.. We figured there where 200 rds a second going up at the planes when they presented themselves. The sky was filled with the tracers!”

    RD, did you make the ‘Gun cloud’ image?


    If not OK, but if so you might like to know I saw it over at Flopping Aces.

  13. Greg B says:

    I was going to go to the Del Mar gun show today.
    As luck would have it, my father in law and I were at a local gun store doing some paperwork. (Early birthday present for me, woo Hoo!)
    Anyhoo, we heard more than one customer remarking that it was a 2 hour wait just to get into the parking lot. Another 2 hours just to get parked, and then ANOTHER 2 hours to get a ticket to enter.
    Needless to say, we decided not to go.
    Surprisingly, the store we were at had quite a few rifles in their racks. Mostly bolt action, and the only auto loaders I saw were .22s.
    But I will be picking up my new piece of equipment in two weeks.
    My wife says we should take a boating excursion after.
    If you get my drift. πŸ™‚

He made it to Japan for a couple years and then back the UP. I’ve managed to go around the world a couple times, been to Mardi Gras and Carnival, now I get to go to Kodiak. Living the dream, quite literally. I am
        super pleased.

    I am an educated, active, ambitious … I appreciate in people a sense of proportion and the ability to laugh. πŸ™‚ But most of all I appreciate the confidence and the willingness of men to a new relationship.

    My son runs a chain of convenience stores. This week he is putting in 110 hours because nobody wants to work. The weather is nicer and people are quitting. They would rather be on the dole in the summer. He can’t even hire managers. Nobody wants to work.

    He is working the counter and he just did this transaction: A guy just bought a box of ice cream bars and two 2 liter bottles of Mountain Dew on EBT. He had $1,200 on his EBT account. Once that transaction was complete, he bought a carton of Marlboros with a $100 bill.

    We are screwed.

    An Observation on an Age Old Question
    I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer.
    The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking on various topics.
    Finally I thought about an age old question:
    Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts?
    Women always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy getting kicked in the nuts.
    Well, after another beer, and some heavy deductive thinking, I have come up with the answer to that question.
    Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby; and here is the reason for my conclusion.
    A year or so after giving birth, a woman will often say, β€œit might be nice to have another child.”
    On the other hand, you never hear a guy say, β€œYou know, I think I would like another kick in the nuts.”
    I rest my case.
    Time for another beer.
