Perhaps the reason most Americans are unhappy is because this advice hasn't been followed.

First, 500 rounds between my two defensive pistols. I need to get more so I can maintin the efficiency with which I have been previously shooting. That means practice. Lots of it.
Second, I only have 150 rounds of .22 LR. If I remember right, aren't gun nuts supposed to have at least 1000 rounds of .22. Does this mean I'm not a true gun nut anymore? Now, I could remedy this with $40, that is, if I had that much. Maybe I can keep my gun nut status by going half-way right now. Please?

“This is their corridor, where they move everything. Drugs, money, wetbacks. They’ll shoot at anybody. Like I said, if you look like you’re hunting around, looking to interfere with their business, steal their stuff, nab wetbacks, whatever, they’ll shoot you.”
As he clarified later, he was describing the corridor between Sasabe and Nogales.
“Nobody can go out and do any work on this ranch alone. You always have to go out in pairs. And no one drives down the road you just did, it’s too dangerous.”
I began surveying the land around us, myself.
“There’s a dead body that’s been laying out over past that hill, too, for awhile now.”
Grizz and I looked at each other, and then he spoke up again, this time asking a key question: “How do you see all this ending, X?”
“There’s a bloodbath coming, and everybody knows it.”

Ah, yes, what a wonderful story to start the day with. The FBI reports that violent and other crimes are down for the third straight year.

Yeah, I'll grant them that the bomber itself can't reach Israel, but it carries 4 cruise missiles. Notice that their range is not mentioned. Wanna bet those missile will be nuclear capable soon?
Maybe Isreal will get smart and go pre-emptive. Either way, get ready for the ride.

We are there, we've taken an oath to defend the constitution and therefore the American people.
In my visits to afghanistan, the last time i was there was over mother's day weekend to visit the troops///and the four metrics that we have always used year in and year out on these visits have been about security. And the military tells us this cannot be won militarily solely.
Secondly, governance and ending corruption.....
So what we would like to see is for President Karzai be a more reliable, a stronger partner, ending the corruption, increasing -- improving the governance.
AMANPOUR: Let's go to something much closer to home right now at the moment and that is the ethics conundrum with Representative Rangel.
How does your affection and your respect for him as a colleague square with what's going on right now and what you said and declared, that this is going to be the -- the -- the most ethical Congress ---- that you're going to drain the swamp of any kind of wrongdoing and corruption, etc.?
PELOSI: When I came in, I said we're draining the swamp. And we did. We have passed the most sweeping ethics reform in the history of the Congress. Any personal respect and affection we may have for people makes us sad about the course of events, but we have to pull the high ethical standard and none of our personalities is more important than that.
AMANPOUR: Can you see Congressman Rangel ever returning as chairman of the Ways and Means or in any position of leadership in -- in the House?
PELOSI: Well, the -- the Ethics Committee is working its will and
AMANPOUR: No matter what happens?
PELOSI: it's an elementary discussion, because what we have done is to wait and see what the Committee decides. I respect what they do. I'm totally out of the loop. It is independent. It is confidential, classified, secret, whatever. We don't know what it is. But we do respect the work that the members of the Committee do.
Well, the -- the tax cuts for the wealthiest -- of the $250,000 and above -- were the -- the Bush initiative. I dont see any reason why we should renew a tax cut that only gives a tax cut to the wealthiest people in America, increases the deficit and doesn't create jobs.
That doesn't make any sense.
This isn't about inter-party bickering. This is about a major philosophical difference as to whose side you're on.
The Republicans are here for the special interests, we're here for the people's interests.
Men of passive tempers look somewhat lightly over the offenses of Britain, and, still hoping for the best, are apt to call out, Come, we shall be friends again for all this. But examine the passions and feelings of mankind. Bring the doctrine of reconciliation to the touchstone of nature, and then tell me, whether you can hereafter love, honor, and faithfully serve the power that hath carried fire and sword into your land? If you cannot do all these, then are you only deceiving yourselves, and by your delay bringing ruin upon your posterity. Your future connection with Britain, whom you can neither love nor honor, will be forced and unnatural , and being formed only on the plan of present convenience, will in a little time fall into a relapse more wretched than in the first. But if you say, you can still pass the violations over, then I ask, Hath your house been burnt? Hath you property been destroyed before your face? Are your wife and children destitute of a bed to lie on, or bread to live on? Have you lost a parent or a child by their hands, and yourself the ruined and wretched survivor? If you have not, then you are not a judge of those who have. But if you have, and can still shake hands with the murderers, then are you unworthy of the name of husband, father, friend, or lover, and whatever may be your rank or title in life, you have the hear of a coward, and the spirit of a sycophant.

"I used to watch MSNBC just to make myself mad."Yep, that's about the only reason to watch that lapdog station.

"Democratic self-deprecation isn’t quite as funny as it once was. Mobs have already taken to the venerable, iconic streets of European states, notably among them Greece, birthplace of Athenian democracy. It’s apparently easier to give wealth away than it is to take it back. Democracy assembled the welfare state peaceably enough. Can democracy dismantle it as peaceably? No, it can’t. The mobs are not finished."

Should we succeed in throwing off the yoke of the Corporate Social-Fascist State, part of our atonement, perhaps the most unpleasant part, will be this: we will be required to be hard.
We will never, ever, put an end to the dreams and machinations of the power-seekers unless we punish those among us with proper severity. Among our current officials are several overt traitors: men who took oaths to defend the Constitution, and have done the exact opposite. Of these, I count one president, four Supreme Court Justices, and hundreds of federal legislators. Unless these are dragged from their hidey-holes as was Saddam Hussein, and executed or incarcerated for life, there will be no respite from the pressure of closet totalitarians and social engineers against our polity. Men to whom power over others is the ultimate satisfaction will seek it relentlessly, until the price for doing so becomes both ultimate and inevitable.
That's merely what will be demanded of us to cleanse the federal government. Further severity will be required of us:
- Toward nations and "non-state actors" that seek to bend us to their wills;
- Toward religious and quasi-religious, racial, and ethnic groups that agitate for special treatment and exemptions from the laws;
- Toward special interests that seek subsidies, subventions, or to impose their views upon us through the political process;
- Toward individual predators who have, in the main, eluded the proper penalties for their deeds.
The underlying message is, of course, We mean it. But it can only be expressed in deeds. Our words have become untrustworthy. We will not regain our credibility until we've demonstrated that we deserve it.
That will be the hardest price of our restoration. It will be unpleasant at best, dreadful and massively bloody at worst.
We will be spared none of it.
