Who gets an email from "betty", who uses an email address of "Vicky951", and wants replies sent to "Rosanna069" and an invalid area code phone number, and would either attempt to call or reply?

I can understand that certain persons - probably our jugeared CINC - would hit "reply" thinking they might get a quick thrill - and the receiving email then knows about a "live" email address they can use to lend verisimilitude to later spam.

I always get a kick out of the text attachment of random phrases. At lest this one put it down far enough that you had to scroll to see it.

Update - a quick Google search on the area code turned up nothing when I posted this - how quickly data gets outdated...

I couldn't resist

I did catch a few words of Jugears' STFU SOTU last night. A few words was all I could take without wanting to do some target practice at the TV.

Boehner's face up there to Jugears' left was priceless, though.

Anyway, stole this off The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler

Found in an email posted to one of my lists:

In church a sweet elderly lady was overheard saying a prayer.
It was so innocent and sincere that I just have to share it with you:

    "Dear Lord, This has been a tough four to five years. You have taken my favorite actor Patrick Swayze. My favorite musician Michael Jackson. My favorite Blues Singer Amy Winehouse. My favorite actress Elizabeth Taylor. My favorite singer Whitney Houston. And now my favorite author Tom Clancy!

I just wanted you to know that my favorite politicians are Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Diane Feinstein, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz and Harry Reid.

Soothing waste of time

This is extremely relaxing.

If he gets stuck, you can click on him and drag him - and if you click right, you can manipulate him in amusing ways.

Sort of like his masters do!

That didn't take long

The antis must be running scared...



As announced in earlier ISRA alerts, anti-gun State Representative Laura Fine along with the Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence and the Cook County State's Attorneys Office, planned to hold a "public meeting" to attack concealed carry.  The meeting was to be held the evening of Wednesday, January 22, 2014 at the Glenview Police Station.

The ISRA has just learned that the organizers of the meeting have postponed the event until a date to be announced later.  We suspect that the organizers will reschedule after they have found a venue spacious enough to accommodate the large number of law-abiding firearm owners who will turn out for the event.

Once the new date and location of the meeting are announced, the ISRA will notify you by way of an alert.

In the mean time, DO NOT show up at the Glenview Police Station Wednesday night.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you.

They probably finally realized what a PR disaster their "public meeting" would be if they allowed the "public" in...

Alert for Illinois freemen

They never stop...



Gun-grabbing State Representative Laura Fine will be holding a so-called "Public Meeting" on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 in Glenview, Illinois.  Joining Fine in organizing the meeting is the extremely anti-gun Cook County State's Attorneys Office along with the state's most radical gun control organization, The Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence (ICHV).

Fine claims that this meeting is for the purpose of answering questions the public might have about concealed carry.  In reality, the organizers plan to use the meeting to frighten the public and spread lies about the impact of concealed carry on public safety.  Fine and the other organizers plan to use this meeting as a recruiting session for ICHV and as a platform to launch efforts to REPEAL CONCEALED CARRY during the 2014 legislative session coming up this spring.

DON'T BE FOOLED - Rep. Fine, the ICHV and the Cook County State's Attorneys Office want to strip you of your right of self defense, and then come take your guns away.


Of course not.  That is why you must stand up now and defend your rights!  That is why we must flood Fine's "Public Meeting" with solid supporters of the 2nd Amendment!


1.  Attend Rep. Fine's "Public Meeting" on concealed carry.  The meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, January 22, 2014, 7:00 PM, Glenview Police Station, 2500 East Lake Street, Glenview.  Please plan on being there at 6:15 to make sure that you get a seat.  In the past, the gun grabbers have been known to close the doors early to stifle pro-gun voices.  Be sure to wear NRA or IGold hats and t-shirts to the event.  If you see the media there, approach them and tell them that you are a law-abiding firearm owner and that you strongly support concealed carry and the right to keep and bear arms.  The gun controllers on the panel will surely attack the Second Amendment and your right to keep and bear arms.  It is very important that you vigorously defend your rights and enthusiastically support your fellow gun owners when they speak out in defense of our Constitutional rights.

2.  Pass this alert on to all your friends and family members...tell them to show up at the meeting as well.

3.  Post this alert to any and all Internet bulletin boards or blogs to which you subscribe.

Gun control that makes sense

Just found this:

Efficient Gun Control that makes sense:
In 1863 a Democrat shot and killed Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States.
In 1881 a left wing radical Democrat shot James Garfield, President of the United States, who later died from the wound.
In 1963 a radical left wing socialist shot and killed John F. Kennedy, President of the United States.
In 1975 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at Gerald Ford, President of the United States.
In 1983 a registered Democrat shot and wounded Ronald Reagan, President of the United States.

In 1984 James Hubert, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 22 people in a McDonalds restaurant.
In 1986 Patrick Sherrill, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 15 people in an Oklahoma post office.
In 1990 James Pough, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 10 people at a GMAC office.
In 1991 George Hennard, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 23 people in a Luby’s cafeteria.
In 1995 James Daniel Simpson, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 5 coworkers in a Texas laboratory.
In 1999 Larry Asbrook, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 8 people at a church service.
In 2001 a left wing radical Democrat fired shots at the White House in a failed attempt to kill George W. Bush, President of the US.
In 2003 Douglas Williams, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people at a Lockheed Martin plant.
In 2007 a registered Democrat named Seung – Hui Cho, shot and killed 32 people in Virginia Tech.
In 2010 a mentally ill registered Democrat named Jared Lee Loughner, shot Rep. Gabrielle Giffords and killed 6 others.
In 2011 a registered Democrat named James Holmes, went into a movie theater and shot and killed 12 people.
In 2012 Andrew Engeldinger, a disgruntled Democrat, shot and killed 7 people in Minneapolis.
In 2013 a registered Democrat named Adam Lanza, shot and killed 26 people in a school.
One could go on, but you get the point, even if the media does not. Clearly, there is a problem with Democrats and guns.
No NRA member, Tea Party member, or Republican conservatives are involved.
SOLUTION: It should be illegal for Democrats to own guns.
There's some sound reasoning at the link that Democrats should be outlawed. RTWT.

Out in the open

Anyone with eyes has had the suspicion...

Emails Show Extensive Collaboration Between EPA, Environmentalist Orgs

Internal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emails show extensive collaboration between top agency officials and leading environmentalist groups, including overt efforts to coordinate messaging and pressure the fossil fuel industry.
The emails, obtained by the Energy and Environment Legal Institute (EELI) through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit, could fuel an ongoing controversy over EPA policies that critics say are biased against traditional sources of energy.
Emails show EPA used official events to help environmentalist groups gather signatures for petitions on agency rulemaking, incorporated advance copies of letters drafted by those groups into official statements, and worked with environmentalists to publicly pressure executives of at least one energy company.
Your tax dollars at work to screw you!

Good book

Just finished "Gunny's Rules" by R Lee Ermey.

Good rules for life, and fun read.

Apology time

Just finished "Unintimidated" by Scott Walker. Good read.

In it, Governor Walker describes how Democrat Senator Tim Cullen worked with him to get the "fleebaggers" to return to Wisconsin for the vote on stripping public unions of their power to demand wages and other benefits, and forcing them o pay a small part of their own retirement and health insurance costs.

I had labelled Cullen as a "fleebagger" when I heard of his going to Illinois with the other cowards, and incorrectly lumped him in with them. I was wrong.

So, Senator Cullen, my apologies.

Climate Change!

It's here!

The wind is whistling outside - 30 MPH or more. Reminds me of that night a while back when the almost-tornado tore the Internet tower down and put me off the air for a month.

At least the whole shop isn't moving around like that night, but the wind sure sounds like a bad thriller movie soundtrack.

Idiot drivers

Coming home through Rockford this afternoon, I saw a couple of real gems driving.

First was a Ford Escape Hybrid ahead of me at a light. Light turns green. 10 seconds later, the Escape's brake lights go off, and they slowly accelerate. To much less than the speed limit - and there was no snow- or traffic- related reason for driving at anything less than the limit.

On the rear bumper was an Obama '12 sticker. When traffic allowed, passed them - on the right, as they were in the left lane.

Next up was a small car - possibly one of those new Chevy Smart Car clones. Again, driving like they were leading a funeral, blocking traffic, making unsignaled lane changes for no apparent reason.

On the rear deck lid was an Obama '08 sticker. Got past that one as soon as possible.

Last up - going north on Il Rte 2, where it's four lanes one-way with left and right-turn only lanes at a light. I'm in the leftmost through lane. A woman driving a small Chevy makes a LEFT TURN into the northbound left turn lane, narrowly missing my front bumper. A couple blocks south, she must have figured out all the oncoming headlights might mean something, as she pulled a u-turn in the middle of the road and then made a left turn back onto the road she had just left. Saw all that in the rear-view.

Did not see any O stickers on that one, but wouldn't be surprised.

Glowbull worming is REAL!

This weekend, we are going to see -20 F lows, highs sub-zero into next week.

Hey Algore - I want a refund! Where's that blistering sun in January you promised?

It's WEATHER - not "climate change". We've seen stuff like this for centuries, and only started taking detailed measurements in the last hundred years or so. Not anywhere near enough data to make big decisions like shutting all our power plants down and creating more bureaucracy to regulate cow farts.

On the good news front - I've burned less than 1/3 of the wood I laid in. With the dead fall I've seen out back, I can build up at least this much wood for NEXT winter over the new year easily.
