If further proof were needed that Sen. Reid is a slimy little

politician, this is it. After Reid, Buttmonkeys & Co. abused their authority to try and silence Limbaugh, he took the letter to Clear Channel- with all their signatures- and put it up for auction, with all funds going to the Marine Corps-Law Enforcement Foundation. Obviously Reid & Co. never thought of anything like this happening, and now, after all the laughter and contempt directed at them, they're trying to claim credit for the auction and the money.

Reid, you suck. Like a Hoover with a turbocharger.

Notes from the front

Got hold of my son yesterday, and found out some things:
Sometimes the biggest problem with the Iraqi kids is keeping them off the vehicles.

Highs are down to low 100's.

Everybody who can is playing Halo 3, but he wants some books.

He wants the Shiloh Arms 1874 Sharps. I told him he'll have to buy it himself, especially if he's thinking of the Quigley model. Though it would get him into handloading, as he wants it chambered in .45/110.

They've helped the locals get their irrigation system working, which made them very happy.

And the commander gets downright upset when the front brakes fail on his humvee. No, the son hadn't worked on them; the guy who had became very, very unhappy.

The sector he's in has been very quiet, between the Iraqi forces and the constant patrolling AQI and JAM have been having very bad times.

So it continues.

Information on the New Orleans Gun Grab

over at the Geek's place. Check it out. I'm going to have to order this, assuming I have any money left after Tulsa.

A while back I noted that Chris Muir had received no threats

about his cartoon. Things are not nearly as good in some places. Particularly Sweden.

Another in the "Idiots who make it hard for good cops" series

This one from Oregon:
Police officers followed a police dog onto the property during a search for a fleeing suspect. After the dog keyed on a car, officers broke out a window. Upset residents, insisting no one had run onto their property, started to videotape the police search.

When one woman was told to stop recording, she gave the videocamera to Waterhouse. He walked to the edge of the property, climbed up a dirt embankment and continued to record. At one point, he yelled to his friend, "Yes, I got it all on film. They had no right to come on this property."

He says in the suit that police immediately came after him, and yelled at him "put it down." Officers moved towards him, and he said, "Don't come after me." Waterhouse said seconds later he was shot with a bean bag gun and a Taser and fell to the ground.

And you'll just love the reason for the bean bag and Taser:
Officers wrote in their reports that Waterhouse ran off, they chased and then bean-bagged and Tasered him. One officer wrote, "He had refused to drop the camera which could be used as a weapon."

I tell you, Barney Fife was a Pro compared to these clowns.

AK vs. AR vs. MN

Theo reminded me of it, go take a look.

In regard to the current attempt by Pelosi & Co. to

screw the troops, I'm reminded of a quote from Ronald Reagan:
"It has been said that politics is the second oldest profession. I have learned that it bears a striking resemblance to the first."

Taking a break from being ticked off at various government officials,

I'd like to take note of some more 'education' officials, and a truly insane-level of moral equivalence.

First, the 'education' matter, from George Will:
The Council on Social Work Education (CSWE), the national accreditor of social work education programs, encourages -- not that encouragement is required -- the ideological permeation of the curricula, including mandatory student advocacy. The CSWE says students must demonstrate an ability to "understand the forms and mechanisms of oppression and discrimination."

At Arizona State University, social work students must "demonstrate compliance with the NASW Code of Ethics." Berkeley requires compliance as proof of "suitability for the profession." Students at the University of Central Florida "must comply" with the NASW code. At the University of Houston, students must sign a pledge of adherence. At the University of Michigan, failure to comply with the code may be deemed "academic misconduct."

Got that? 'Compliance', 'must comply', 'must sign', 'MANDATORY student advocacy'. And as an example of what these socialist workers clowns do to people:
In 2005, Emily Brooker, a social-work student at Missouri State University, was enrolled in a class taught by a professor who advertised himself as a liberal and insisted that social work is a liberal profession. At first, a mandatory assignment for his class was to advocate homosexual foster homes and adoption, with all students required to sign an advocacy letter, on university stationery, to the state legislature.

When Brooker objected on religious grounds, the project was made optional. But shortly before the final exam she was charged with a "Level 3," the most serious, violation of professional standards. In a 2 1/2 -hour hearing -- which she was forbidden to record and which her parents were barred from attending -- the primary subject was her refusal to sign the letter. She was ordered to write a paper ("Written Response about My Awareness") explaining how she could "lessen the gap" between her ethics and those of the social-work profession. When she sued the university, it dropped the charges and made financial and other restitution.

This sounds like the show trials and 'self-criticism' garbage the communist party used to control people. As Glenn Beck said after talking to the jerk from Hofstra, "When you send your kids off to college, here's some of what your money is paying for."

Now to the moral equivalence. Over at Classical Values he had a link to this lady's blog, which linked to this garbage:
Can it be true? Did a woman anthropologist actually compare the ceremony at which young Masai girls are genitally mutilated to "a white wedding"?

Yes she did. It's true. The anthropologist's name is (or was) Melissa Llewellyn-Davies MFA. In case you're wondering, the initials do not stand for Master of Fine Arts; they stand for Marxist Feminist Anthropologist. Ms Llewellyn-Davies compared genital mutilation to a white wedding in her chillingly misleading narration for the film Masai Women, a Disappearing World production.

I won't quote anything else from this piece, you really need to read it yourself. As Kim says, preferably after moving breakable objects out of reach.

Since so many legislators seem to be unwilling to listen

to the people back home(something about D.C. living seems to cause a kind of 'pattern' deafness), I have an idea on how to get their attention. Since he has a incredibly hugelyslightly larger reach to people than I do, I sent it to Glenn Beck:
Since they keep doing things we've already made known we don't want them to do- like trying to sneak the illegal alien amnesty through AGAIN- maybe they're just not really paying attention.
So, to get their attention, might I suggest some gift boxes for some legislators. They should contain:
A piece of wood to represent a rail,
A small bag of feathers,
A piece of tar.
If they're truly too stupid to understand the reference to being tarred, feathered and run out of town on a rail, then they can have someone explain it to them.

What do you think?

I must confess

I've never been to Larry Correia's site before. If you haven't, correct that error. Soon. Or you're missing things like this:
To put this in perspective, when you shoot somebody in self defense, the goal isn’t necessarily to kill them, it is to stop them. You want the bad guy to stop doing whatever it is they are doing that caused you go pull a gun in the first place. Live or die is really irrelevant. You want them to leave you alone. Sadly, the best way to make somebody leave you alone is to shoot them in their vital organs, and that often results in the bad guy’s death. But that’s his problem, not yours.

And this:
Went shooting. I fired three shots through my tactical shotgun. All of the stuff from Elite Ninja Force Tactical Systems.com broke. And I think I broke my wrist. It’s like really swollen, and I’m having a hard time typing. Jimbo saw me crying and totally made fun of me. Jerk. I didn’t hit anything either, but you can’t miss inside your house, so it don’t matter. My vest split four seams and all the Dragonbreath rounds fell out. I’ll have mom sew it. The Deagle totally ruled. I didn’t shoot it because the ammo was too expensive, but with the gold plating, it was like totally the most awesome gun at the range.
On Gear Whores, if you’re going to buy stuff, please go shoot it. If you buy stuff that you don’t know how to use, it makes Baby John Moses Browning cry. If you haven’t actually used something, please don’t tell the rest of us that have used it, how awesome it is, because that makes us want to beat you up and take your lunch money.(this applies especially to everybody on the internet that keeps telling me how great certain obscure guns are, because only seven people in America have actually shot one, and if you ain’t one of them, shut the hell up.)
