Via reader Lance comes this e-mail. It's a simple guide to understanding Arizona's new law regarding illegal immigration. I will have some comments following.
Okay, so I think this is a pretty good analogy. Let me be clear about something, though, for anyone who thinks this bill is about racial profiling and card checks - IT'S NOT!!! There are provisions in the bill which specifically prohibit racial profiling. This is not like in Nazi Germany where you could be stopped on the street and asked for your papers if you didn't have blonde hair and blue eyes. We're talking about, for example, someone gets pulled over for a traffic violation and asked for ID (nothing new there), and said person cannot provide proof of citizenship or even being here legally, so therefore gets booked for being an illegal alien (which, by the way, makes them a CRIMINAL), forcing law enforcement to cut through all the legal bovine excrement red tape in order to send them back where they belong.
There is already federal law on the book that allows the feds to do the same thing AZ's new law now allows state LE to do - secure our country. People need to quit complaining about something that didn't really change anything except jurisdiction.
This all brings to mind a video, via ol' broad. READ THE BILL!

As it should. These officers, especially those who appear to be feds, are out of line. They don't even know the law. They seem to be mad about "contempt of cop" even thought it is respectfully done. Three men tie up 17 officers without breaking any laws. And we wonder why crime stays high . . .
Watch the video. Share it.

Via Sipsey Street comes this video.
This, my friends, is why we are in the situation we are in. We have a bunch of people who have been dumbed down by our education system and the media. They have no desire to learn truth or reason, but merely want their share of your things, and they'll vote for whoever promises them free lunch. I have to question how Savage was as kind as he was in this video. This kind of stuff makes me start thinking about throwing some bleach into the gene pool. Oh well, when the excrement hits the impeller, people like this have already set themselves up to be the first wave to die off. No outside action required. I hope and pray we can talk sense into some of them before it's too late.

Sipsey Street Irregulars: Paranoid? Yep, we're as "paranoid" as the Founders.
Read the whole thing. It gives a real perspective on where America is yet again in the big scheme of things. Here is a short excerpt:
"As early as 1775 Edmund Burke had noted in the House of Commons that the colonists’ intensive study of law and politics had made them acutely inquisitive and sensitive about their liberties. Where the people of other countries had invoked principles only after they had endured “an actual grievance,” the Americans, said Burke, were anticipating their grievances and resorting to principles even before they actually suffered. “They augur misgovernment at a distance and snuff the approach of tyranny in every tainted breeze.” The crucial questions in the colonists’ minds, wrote John Dickinson in 1768, was “not, what evil HAS ACTUALLY ATTENDED particular measures -- but, what evil, in the nature of things, IS LIKELY TO ATTEND THEM.” Because “nations, in general, are not apt to THINK until they FEEL, . . . Therefore nations in general have lost their liberty.” But not the Americans, as the Abbe Raynal observed. They were an “enlightened people” who knew their rights and the limits of power and who, unlike any people before them, aimed to think before they felt. -- Gordon S. Woods, The Creation of the American Republic, 1776 - 1787, Chapter One, “The Whig Science of Politics,” pp. 3-5."

Via The Liberty Sphere, Here are three articles that need to be looked at and thought about, then we need to do something about it. This is a threat.

So, I've been wanting to post this for about 3 weeks, but have been sorely lacking for both time and energy.
I got the itching to shoot the .40 at targets smaller than soda cans, and I just happened to have some golf balls from another project I had worked on, so I decided that would be some decent fun. Now I had two questions: Could I hit a golf ball at 7 yards with a sub-compact .40, and what would it do to a golf ball if I could. Well, I discovered that I could hit them. So, to satisfy my quest for an answer to the second question, I shot 6 golf balls. Three with FMJ, three with JHP. Next are pictures.

I was pretty amazed at the self-healing capabilities of the golf balls. Still, you can tell the JHP rounds did more damage and left a more permanent wound. Of course, it was rather fun watching the first ball fly back 20 feet into the tree line after being hit.
To wrap it up, I will end in the manner of those at The Box O' Truth.
1. It takes a lot of practice to hit a golf ball consistently with a handgun.
2. Golf balls can not only take a beating, but also a good shooting.
3. It's fun to shoot stuff.
This is a link to a search results page, you'll have to click on and read the articles about students being thrown out of school for sporting American flag clothing.
This outrages me. If you live in America, you don't have the right to be upset at someone who displays the American flag. What really drives me nuts is that the articles report that one of the Mexican girls said they would never display a Mexican flag on July 4. Seems to me I've heard stories about precisely that happening, and it only took 15 seconds to find this:
First a history lesson, definitely worth your time, at least if you have an open mind.
Second, a current event.

Yep, more proof that public school is a socialist prison/indoctrination center. If you can get your kids out, do it.
