It's apparent that the graying is also affecting my deep-down soul.
When I see a picture like this one...
Girls of the Israeli Defense Forces
... my first reaction is not either:
1) "Wow! What sweet hotties!"
2) "Cool! Nice ra.. -- er, rifles."
Instead, my initial reaction is "Dammit girls -- clean-up your goddanged rooms!"
Sigh -- I am becoming my own father. I guess there's worse things though.

I'd bitch about the imbecilic Maryland voters, but the recent presidential election showed that the rest of the country ain't any better.

Although this is an obvious fact to almost all multi-cellular organisms, it is refreshing for a politician to recognize that the citizens can better protect themselves than can the gov't. It is even more breathtaking for the politician to publicly articulate his fact.
Attaboy to Alderman Charles Quincy Troupe, 72 years old. Apparently, Alderman Troupe is also against red-light cameras (another BZ!). Apparently, the liberals of St. Lois are no great fans of his -- complaining that a 1 year old who fell outta a 2nd story window of one of his rental properties is somehow Troupe's fault (not maybe the child's parents' fault?).

“We come to it at last, the great battle of our time.”
Like everyone else in the patriotic immigration reform movement, I feel a little like Gandalf, the good White Wizard, who makes this comment while calmly watching the war clouds gathering over the evil land of Mordor at the climax of The Return Of The King, the last of the Lord of the Rings movie trilogy.
And it’s not just because of my hair!
Check-out VDARE on immigration -- the invasion from Mordor.

Atlas has the whole story here.
“I picked up the phone and called Murdoch … [and told him] these are not Muslim riots, these are riots out of poverty,” Prince al-Walid said."
I'm unsure whether or not this is actually true, but you can bet that I'll be watching FOX closely for any dhimmitude. At least tonight on Huckabee's show, he was calling it pretty-much straight.
You Are 67% Likely to Survive Another Great Depression
Even though you may not be expecting the worst, you're the type of person who prepares for the worst.
You live a relatively modest life. You don't overspend, and you aren't very materialistic.
You are also quite self sufficient and independent. You have many useful skills.
You can take care of yourself and those you love... which is crucial to surviving another Great Depression.
I thought that I would be a world-class survivor, but now I'm depressed.
How did it come to this, indeed.
WHERE ARE ALL YOU SINGLE WOMEN?
All you single women out there, it seems as though your screams were heard loud and clear: "I want my mommy!" You voted in record numbers to put Democrats in the White House and Congress. Unmarried woman supported Barack Obama by a 70% to 29% margin. And this should really tell you something ... there was a 44-point difference between the voting behavior of married versus unmarried women. Married woman already had their security ... single women were looking for it. In fact, based on the Edison/Mitofsky National Election Pool published by CNN, if it weren't for your overwhelming support of the Chosen One, John McCain would have won the women vote and the White House.
I'm going to go out on a limb and say there are two factors at play. Unmarried women didn't like Sarah Palin – maybe they were intimidated by her ability to be a woman, a mother of 5, a governor, and be able to handle a shot gun. And unmarried women are eager to suckle the government teat. They feel insecure. They don't have a husband to provide ... so the government becomes their husband. Not a bad deal, I guess. The government provides you with the safety net you would normally get from a good marriage, and you're free to mess around pretty much as much as you want! They are just begging to be the beneficiaries of government and all the mediocrity it has to offer.
Well -- I guess these ladies (can I still use that term without seeming sexist?) will now get the government that they deserve. Unfortunately, so will the rest of us.

Whoops! Wrong Plate.
Here's the Right One!
Oh my -- the hubris exemplified by the Obama Commemorative Plate ranks right up there with those folks who want to create a Barack H. Obama national holiday.
Oh well, I guess these things are inevitable if he's another Reagan, FDR, Licoln, and Karl Marx all rolled into one.
Dang -- if only I was a complete and utter whore-monger. I could be making so much $$$$ from these imbecilic Obots.
Third-World Bum Rush
And the scum did not even stop shopping while paramedics worked to save the poor bastard. RIP.
Shooting @ Toys-R-Us in CA:
Welcome to Mexifornia!
At least they both killed each-other with no innocent bystanders being physically injured. Psychological damage / trauma to little kids -- that's another story.
Anybody else notice that the rot is worst on the edges of the country?
Indian Special Forces w/Attack Survivors
Meanwhile, US Muslims show solidarity with the innocent victims -- er, correction -- make that "the terrorist attackers". Knock me over with a feather.

An excellent scholarly article on some of the reasons why the Jews of Germany submitted to the Nazis without (for the most part) forcibly resisting.
Of course, once that all peaceful recourse was obviously pointless -- the Jews did fight:
German Assault Gun Destroyed by Molotov Cocktails
During the Warsaw Uprising
Jews -- 670AD through today
Christians -- ~650AD through today
Hindus -- TODAY!
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of India today. Just as their were with us on 11SEP 2001.
Let us ALL -- Christians, Jews, Hindus, Non-Believers, and others of good-heart -- ALL band together to fight Islamic supremacism, both politically, spiritually, and physically.
The following points are most notable regarding this latest attack by Islamic Supremacists:
Soft Targets: The only relatively hard target was the local police station -- which they hit first in an (apparently fairly effective) effort to disrupt law-enforcement response. Other targets were as soft as possible -- hotels, private homes, religious centers, restaurants, etc. This multiplies the effectiveness of the attackers in a large metropolitan area by creating the fear that anyone and everyone is a potential target.
Low Tech / Affordable Weapons: AK47s, a few LMGs, and grenades. Dang! -- this is competitive with the DC Beltway Sniper in terms of affordability. The injuries wrought by such conventional weapons, although perhaps fewer in number than from a jetliner ramming into a skyscraper, are multiplied in their media effects -- injured (but still recognizable) bodies and great pools of blood have greater personal impact on the evening news.
Indigenous Elements in Assault Teams: Rumors report that Indians and British nationals were involved in the assault. As India is a former British colony, using these elements in the assault teams may have helped the attackers to remain unnoticed until they unveiled their weapons.
Multiple Simultaneous Assault-Teams: Greatly complicating the LE response was the use of multiple assault teams. This also multiplied the effectiveness of the terrorists.
Each and every one of these techniques can be used against the US. As superb as our Law Enforcement organizations are, they are not prepared to defend against this sort of assault.
One solace might be that American citizens have a high rate of firearms ownership and would be ready and willing to confront the terrorists directly -- without waiting for law enforcement response -- we the citizenry may be true first-responders.

"There is nothing like having your finger on the trigger of a gun to reveal who you really are. Life or death in one twitch — ultimate decision, with the ultimate price for carelessness or bad choices.
It is a kind of acid test, an initiation, to know that there is lethal force in your hand and all the complexities and ambiguities of moral choice have fined down to a single action: fire or not?......The first and most important of these lessons is this: it all comes down to you."
Read the whole thing here. Words from a very smart man.

Here is their pic -- trying to look all "gansta" but only succeeding in looking like teen-age boys struggling for coolness. ;-)
JO is third from the right, in the brown hoodie.
JO was also designated as MVP for his age-group. WOOT!
This MVP award slightly compensated for him being red-carded for a perceived slide-tackle. He swears that he was actually tripped-up by another player -- but unfortunately the ref didn't see it that way. <:-(

It was farking cold! 27 degrees with a biting wind - ouch! The show's operators had mercy on those of us standing in-line waiting for the doors to open so they processed our admissions and then let us go back to defrost in our cars. Very considerate. BZ & thx.
Initially the crowd was pretty-much normal-sized, but more and more folks showed up until the place was packed around midday. Lots non-standard customers too -- a bunch of younger professional types (are camel-hair topcoats uniform-issue items?) and other folks who I've never seen there before. From talking to a number of the dealers, they are seeing MANY new faces among their customers.
This is very good in that we are expanding the base of the "gun-culture*". The only disconcerting thing is overhearing the questions being asked by a number of these nube gun-owners.
From "Does the magazine that I just bought fit my rifle?" to "How do I put the bullets into my new gun?", these questions showed that there's definitely a shortfall in firearms knowledge among first-time gun-owners. Ignorance is not necessarily a bad thing, so long as you are working to eliminate it.
FOR ALL NEW GUN-OWNERS: Please get yourself some official or unofficial training. Be safe out there!
Supply of Evil Black Rifles (EBRs) was not too bad, but prices were definitely spiking. AR lowers were up $50-100 from the norm. AKs were going for up to $1100 -- yegads!
Ammo was the big seller. Folks were slurping-up ammo (especially .223, .308, and 7.62X39 - but other stuff too) and reloading components like CRAZY.
I bought a few AK and AR mags. I'll order ammo online (I've already got ~10K rnds in-bound).

Me -- I just built-up a new target-grade AR a few months ago. I also bought a 22LR bolt-gun from the CMP. So I can hardly feel deprived when it comes to flame-spurting steel-tubes. However, this is a cool variant of the Eevil Black Rifle (EBR) that I do salivate over:
A Bushmaster M17 Bullpup AR. Long out-of-production, but something cool to dream about while our Constitution still holds some value.

I found this while I was searching for the Bob Hop laugh-line on Democratic Zombies.
Wow! What a HUGE lot of class, talent, humor, and good-heartedness -- all on a single stage.
Today you'll get stuff like Russell Brand, Rosie O'Donnell, and Keith Olberman.
Very farking sad! Is this how it felt in the later days of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire?
Nov 19th is National Ammunition Day where we-all are encouraged to buy at least 100 rounds.
I just ordered 10,000 rounds (ok -- half were for a buddy), just 'cause you never can tell....
While we're on the topic of Zombies, this is old but waaay too appropriate (esp IVO the recent election) not to post:
So go out and buy some rounds. Now -- MAGGOT!!!

The swooning frenzy over the choice of Barack Obama as President of the United States must be one of the most absurd waves of self-deception and swirling fantasy ever to sweep through an advanced civilisation. At least Mandela-worship – its nearest equivalent – is focused on a man who actually did something.
Read the whole thing here:
Sadly, this sounds like a commentator from Rohan writing about the decline and fall of Gondor. Apologies for the LOTR reference (geek-alert!).
Instead of responding strongly and forcefully to Russian President Dimitri Medvedev's announcement of fielding new missiles aimed at the West, he is profoundly quiet.
Now, a day later, he sends mixed signals to Poland's president on supporting missile defense. Then, when President Kaczynski announces O-man's support of continued missile defense, THE ONE once-again weasels-out by claiming that he "...voted for the missile defense before voting against it". Oh wait, that ain't right -- what his administration actually said was that "President-elect Obama made no commitment on missile defense...he supports deploying a missile-defense system (only) when the technology is proved to be viable." Mushy BULLSHIT!
I hate to link to BBC, but here it is: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7717669.stm
Russia's leadership (Medvedev and Putin) has got to be high-fiving each other over the payoff from their contributions to the campaign. This has got to be the squishiest US Gov't since Teh Jimmeh and maybe since forever.
Here's the photo of the their "tomb":
Please feel free to drop-by to pay your respects and help with their "burial"....

A whole lotta truth here.
I just got back from teaching a bunch of boy and girl scouts basic rifle skills. We shot paper at first, but then finished-up with steel silhouettes, spinners, and a "dueling-tree".
The kids had so much fun they were glowing. Which was a good thing 'cuz the kids whined and weaseled "C'mon -- just one more target (25 rounds) -- pleeeeeeze!" until it was nearly dark.
The best thing that a parent or adult can do is to teach safe firearms-handling and marksmanship to the next generation.
Is anyone else out there as frustrated and incredulous as I am today? The Olympic games being hosted by Red China once again demonstrates our willingness to place profit above principle.
Have we forgotten the parody of the 1936 games hosted by Nazi Germany? I guess we have.
The Invasion of Poland -- er, Georgia
At the same time, are we seeing the repeat of the Blitzkrieg invasion of Poland from 1939? Russian armorer units pouring over the borders of Georgia is frighteningly reminiscent of this:And once-again, the world sits by and yawns. This can only encourage Russian (and Chinese) adventurism/expansionism.
History repeats itself... ... once again.
