God, Guns, Guts, and American Pickup Trucks
Dang. Mark Muller of Max Motors kicked CNN's butt to the curb right there. And while that little anchor's panties are twisted in a knot, Mark is shipping vehicles all over the USA, yup. He's selling cars and making money. I tell ya, it makes you proud to be American.
I found that at Theodore's World. Thanks Chrissie!

I suppose to the people who live in the United Kingdom, this is really no big deal:
Escaped prisoners who are on the run will not be named in case it breaches their right to privacy, civil servants have ruled.
Ministry of Justice officials say the Data Protection Act means they are unable to confirm the names of escaped prisoners still at large.
It seems 39 prisoners have escapted over the past 2 years, some have been caught, but the Ministry of Justice won't say who is still on the street, "saying their identities had to be protected from third parties."
The case mirrors that of Jason Croft and Michael Nixon who went on the run from Sudbury Prison in Derbyshire in 2006.
Police refused to release pictures of the pair, who were both convicted murderers, when asked by the media.
The force said it had to consider the Human Rights Act and data protection laws when asked to publish 'wanted' photographs of the two men.
If you live in a nation that has taken away your ability to defend yourself, I suppose there's no reason for you to know who these escapees are or what they look like, I mean, really, what's the point? There's no sense in fighting off a mugger in the UK anyway, after all, there more than a few people in jail in the UK for defending themselves against the criminal horde, so, for all intents and purposes, self defense is pretty much against the law in the UK and the criminals know it. I suppose the government could let its citizens know to who to try run away from, but then again, if enough people get shot while running away from criminals, perhaps they'll make running away against the law too. In the interest of public safety, of course.

It was Sunday nite in da hood, well, early Monday morning really, somebody is having a birthday party, and gosh darn it, a terrible thing happened! At least one AK-47 and two pistols suddenly went berserk, jumped into the hands of three men dressed in black, forced them to drive to the party, made them go in uninvited, and then - OMG! -forced those men to shoot those guns into the crowd of party goers! Oh, it was a horrible thing for all of those innocent people who were victimized by those evil guns:
Twelve people were shot shortly after midnight Monday when three men dressed in black interrupted a birthday party in Overtown and fired wildly into a crowd.
Several people are now in the hospital as Miami police search for the three shooters who walked into a home in the 500 block of Northwest Fifth Street at 12:45 a.m.
In all, four people were taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital's Ryder Trauma Center in critical condition and six others were taken to Jackson, according to Miami Fire Rescue spokesman Ignatius Carroll. Later, police said three people were in critical condition.
When fire rescue first arrived at the scene about five minutes after receiving 911 calls, they had to set up outside the area and wait for police to arrive because there were still shots being fired in the area, Carroll said.
''It was a massive scene for a couple of blocks,'' Carroll said.
According to Willie Moreno, a Miami Police Department spokesman, another person was hit by a car near the shooting.
Kedricka Hughes, 16, who was at the party, said everything was quiet before the shooting began.
''Everything was fine and then they just started shooting,'' she said.
According to Hughes, the party was her friend's 20th birthday. Luckily, he was not shot, she said.
Miami police Chief John Timoney said bullet casings found at the scene led detectives to believe at least one AK-47 and two pistols were used in the shooting. It happened during what he described as a ''well-advertised'' birthday party.
A ''Happy Birthday'' sign and balloons were outside the home.
''Obviously from the debris, lots of people were running,'' Timoney said. ``Hats were thrown off as people were fleeing the scene. It looks like a couple dozen people were there at the time.''
About 8 a.m., yellow police tape roped off several blocks around the area, a complex of one- and two-story buildings in Overtown. Crime scene investigators and detectives poured over the several block scene.
Cheyanne Wimbley, 21, said she was inside her nearby home when she heard a large boom, followed by dozens of ''rapid fire'' shots.
''I got down and I hoped nobody got hurt,'' said Wimbley, who has lived in the neighborhood about five years.
''It's devastating,'' she said. ``You can't have fun in Overtown any more. I don't want to be here any more. It's just sad.'
Gosh golly. I suppose it is pretty devastating when you can't party down on a Sunday night anymore without some guns going berserk and spoiling all the fun.
To my fellow Miamians, fear not! The remnants of the Miami Police Force that have thus far managed to survive the lay-offs are hot on the trail of those evil guns and the poor men who were forced to use them. If and when they find the guns, they will be impounded, and we will all be a little safer. As for the men who were forced to use them, well, if and when they are found, they will likely be booked, photographed, and released, because prosection and incarceration costs so much and at the moment, like the rest of this great stimulated country of ours, Miami-Dade County is little strapped for cash. If that troubles you, just remember, they too were victims of those evil guns, and are not to be blamed for their behavior. After all, if it weren't for the guns, they would never have committed such a heinous crime.

Ahem. Listen up!
A few selected quotes from More Guns, Less Violent Crime as the Bad Guys Run or Die, By Ted Nugent
Water, water, everywhere water. Know it, embrace it, manage it, or drown. Same goes for cars, trucks, chainsaws, knives, crowbars, blowtorches, and guns. Based on the inept, clumsy, irresponsible failure of brain-dead, uncoordinated numbnuts, I will not be denied the pragmatic, functional utility of anything.
I will not drown, nor will I drink and drive, chainsaw-massacre anyone, stumble, slice, burn, or shoot myself, nor will I ever hold up a bank. So the best advice would be to think, improvise, adapt, and overcome, man up, but by all means, leave me the hell alone. You don't ban electric guitars just because someone may have a lapse in logic, goodwill, and decency and spontaneously break out into country and western music. The vast majority of sensible people will use electric guitars as God intended and whip out good, sexy rock-n-roll licks.
I need my water, cars, trucks, chainsaws, knives, crowbars, blowtorches, and guns. I have mastered them all; they are all wonderful ingredients for my American Dream of rugged individualism, declared independence, and self-sufficiency. They all serve me well, and I am not giving any of them up. Ever.
The masses must never be controlled for the sake of the lunatic fringe. Remember "Don't Tread on Me"? Don't.
Read the rest. Just gotta love the Nuge.

Quote of the day
concerns the Assault Weapon Ban and comes from Walls of the City:
Just because one of our neighboring nations cannot be bothered to keep their criminal elements in check, our Attorney General and President are proposing limiting the rights of our own law-abiding citizens. Just be cause our government, and the government of that neighboring nation, cannot be bothered to secure the border between our two nations, our Attorney General and President are proposing abridging the rights of our own law-abiding citizens. Just because criminals (in both countries) are doing what criminals do, and breaking the various laws of those countries, our Attorney General and President are proposing infringing on the rights of our own law-abiding citizens.
As hard as I try, I simply cannot get my mind around it. When you listen to the words of AG Holder on the reasoning behind it:
"As President Obama indicated during the campaign, there are just a few gun-related changes that we would like to make, and among them would be to reinstitute the ban on the sale of assault weapons," Holder told reporters.
Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border.
"I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum."
President Obama is doing it for Mexico? He is infringing on our rights to have a positive impact in Mexico? What country is Obama president of? Gee whiz, I thought Obama was elected President of the United States of America, not Mexico. Why the hell would the President of the United States restrict the rights of Americans in order to benefit another country? Whose side is he on anyways?
Here's a thought President Obama. Think about who is carrying those guns across the border in the first place. They are criminals President Obama, who broke our laws sneaking into this country and once here, they are the ones who break the guns laws we already have. It's time to close the border President Obama, and enforce our immigration laws. Get those criminals out of here and back to Mexico where they belong. Make it impossible for illegals to live here, and work here. Make it impossible for them to find housing, food, medical care, and schooling for their children. Fine their employers, confiscate the properties from people who rent to them. Guess what? They will leave. If they are found guilty of a crime, do not jail them, deport them. According to your gloom and doom speeches, unemployment is up and it's going to get worse, you keep saying Americans are desperate for work, well then, President Obama, why not let Americans do the jobs these parasites are doing now. It's time to take care of our own President Obama, and to let Mexico take care of their own.
And... for those of you who look for the good in the bad, well, as Walls of the City points out, the dems on the hill are likely having a few sleepless nights over this, after all, they lost a lot of seats in 1994 over the AWB and mid-term elections will be here before we know it. No wonder Nancy Pelosi is dead set against the Ban. I guess she's not quite as dumb as rocks after all.
I recommend you read the rest of the post at Walls of the City. There's a lot of good info and some excellent points made. I found him via What Bubba Knows, another most excellent site that I'm happy to recommend.

Buh-Bye Pat Regan
Sadly, earlier this month, prominent anti-gun campaigner Pat Regan was stabbed to death by her own grandson, who suffers from "mental problems." He then went out and stabbed someone else.
You kinda have to wonder what Pat was thinking at the very end, perhaps... "Thank G-d guns are outlawed or I might be tempted to shoot him before he kills me." Or maybe it was just "I'm glad don't have one of those evil firearms because I might be tempted to shoot this crazy bastard before he stabs me to death."
No matter. The killer killed and Pat Regan, founder of Mothers Against Violence, still died a violent death at the hand of a crazy person, a crazy person who killed her, and then tried to kill someone else, for no good reason other than his own insanity. But since nobody got shot, we should all feel safer, right?
What do ya wanna bet that one day soon, an anti-knife campaigner will be battered to death with a fish?
Pat's anti-gun campaign began after her son was shot and killed. Never mind that her son was a scumbag who hung out with scumbags and a scumbag killed him, Pat still saw fit to dictate to the rest of the world about what we should and should not do. That's a strange thing to do when you consider that her own family is rather over-populated with murderers and scumbags.
You don't have the right to have something banned the second it negatively affects you or yours.
Pat learned a sad lesson the hard way, that weapons don't kill people, people kill people. If they don't shoot them with a gun, they'll stab them with a knife, or smother them with a pillow, or bludgeon them with a candlestick, or beat them with a baseball bat, or run over them with a car, or they'll just use their own bare hands. Yes, Pat found that out the hard way.

He was a great man
"Mr. Clinton, sir, America didn't trust you with our health care system. America didn't trust you with gays in the military. America doesn't trust you with our 21-year-old daughters, and we sure, Lord, don't trust you with our guns.”
“I intend to dedicate my remaining time as president of the NRA to ensure that the Second Amendment is safe from Al Gore and all those who threaten it...”
"Freedom is our fortune and honor is our saving grace."
Rest in Peace Mr. Heston

Kiss My Glock... Ted Nugent, live:
At the end... some nice shooting by Uncle Ted and the Boys, that looks like a party I'd like an invite to, and finally, we get the answer to the question... why does anyone need an Uzi? sigh. Makes me wanna go out and get one.
Did you know that America is the most armed country in the world? It's true!
The United States has 90 guns for every 100 citizens, making it the most heavily armed society in the world, a report released on Tuesday said.
U.S. citizens own 270 million of the world's 875 million known firearms, according to the Small Arms Survey 2007 by the Geneva-based Graduate Institute of International Studies.
Of course, that would be registered firearms held by law-abiding citizens and it wouldn't take into consideration the numerous "saturday nite specials" held by criminals in this country.
That sounds like a lot of firearms, but...
In 1994, 44 million Americans owned 192 million firearms, 65 million of which were handguns. Although there were enough guns to have provided every U.S. adult with one, only 25 percent of adults actually owned firearms; 74 percent of gun owners possessed two or more.
Gun ownership was highest among middle-aged, college- educated people of rural small-town America.
In 1994, there were four in my household, two handguns and two shotguns. The ex took the handguns and one of the shotguns, I kept the other. Now I've got my old reliable Mossberg and my brand spanking new Kimber Ulta Carry. Most of the people I know who are armed have more than one, and a good many of them have what can only be called an arsenal.
Oh, and back in 1994, the general assumptiopn was gun ownership was in a decline. I guess they were wrong.

The Way Of The Gun
A Gay Liberal Explores Ohio Gun Culture By Taking Matters - And Weapons - Into His Own Hands
By Brian Thornton
In a nondescript business complex off Interstate 77 in Broadview Heights, across the street from Radio Disney and a block away from a daycare, I've got my hands wrapped around a piece, finger on the trigger. When I awoke this morning, my irrational anxieties led me to dress as heterosexually as possible. After all, what do you wear to your first time at the range? I've chosen jeans, an orange ringer T and a green zip-up sweatshirt, a combination seemingly straight enough to pull off this charade.
To my right, in the next stall, a weapon fires powerfully, a sound that pierces through both my headphones and earplugs. I have no idea if the comically small revolver I'm gripping will create the same blast, but I'm about to find out. With my feet spread wide and arms rigidly stretched forward, I — a show tune-loving, Democrat-voting homosexual — am mere seconds from pulling the trigger on this instrument of death, something I vowed I would never do.
Its all part of a lesson most of us learned in the schoolyard, when you are tired of being a victim, you learn to fight back, to protect yourself. As a Jewish girl growing up in Brooklyn, that was a lesson I learned early and never, ever forgot.
I'm an adult now, and I face greater dangers than the gangs of Italian girls, or Puerto Rican girls, or Black girls, or Christian girls, all of whom had one thing in common, they thought it was great fun to beat up on the Jewish girl. Back then, the danger I faced was a black eye or a bloody nose, or a fat lip, and I both had my share, and gave my share. Today, I face... other dangers. Back then, I was ready to fight for my dignity, today, I'm ready to fight for my life. I refuse to be a victim. That's why I'm armed.
IT'S SATURDAY NIGHT, and I'm driving downtown toward Cleveland to meet friends for drinks. I send a text message to one to find out where he is. His boyfriend responds: "Dan and I were attacked. I'm at Lutheran. I'm OK. Just getting checked out."
Through text messages and phone calls, I learn that my friends were attacked by a group of teenagers as they tried to get into their car. Eddie has pains in his ribs and a scrape on his leg. Dan is just shaken up. Eddie's wallet is gone.
As I drive, I am suddenly overcome with a mix of anger, fear and frustration — emotions that again make me reevaluate my position. More friends affected by crime, and no way to protect ourselves.
But there is a way we could protect ourselves, something Jim helped me learn just weeks before: We could all start carrying guns.
It seems irrational, but fear is irrational. And I begin to understand how that fear could drive people to arm themselves. I'm not on either "side" like Toby Hoover or Jim Irvine. I, like so many Ohioans, fall somewhere in the middle. Guns still feel like the ultimate solution, something I'm not ready to embrace yet.
But if the police won't or can't protect me and my friends, taking matters into my own hands doesn't seem irrational anymore.
