Your government at work.

Evidently, the feds think your cell phone should be a marketing tool for sellers - at your expense.

REMEMBER Cell Phone Numbers Go Public this month. 
All cell phone numbers are being released to telemarketing companies and   you will start to receive sales calls. 
To prevent this, call the following number from your cell phone:    888-382-1222
It is the National DO NOT CALL list It will only take a minute of your time.. It blocks your number for five (5) years. 
You must call from the cell phone number you want to have blocked. You cannot call from a different phone number. 
HELP OTHERS BY PASSING THIS ON. It takes about 20 seconds. 
Please forward to family and friends.  
It would have been so easy for the FCC to rule that INCOMING calls to mobile units would be paid for by the CALLER, just like any phone call before in history - but no, crony capitalism and lobbyists ensured that YOU have to work to remove your number from the lists - and calls from "charities" and "political action committees" are exempt from the "no call" list.
AND, you have to renew this every five years or you get more phone spam.

Another thing I've ranted about in the past is caller ID - it is trivial to come up with a system that can't be hacked, and even easier for CONgress to pass a law making foxing Caller ID a felony - but no, again, the phone company wanted to leave wiggle room for telemarketers and scam artiists.

I'll shut up now - but remember to call and get your cell on the no-call list!

Something for the kids


When will we see justice?

Here in Wisconsin, the Demonrats have used the police to terrorize people who supported Act 10, one of Governor Walker's reforms that removed the power of the public unions to demand raises and benefits from their employers, the people of Wisconsin. The Demonrats were understandably irked, as those public unions are some of their biggest supporters.

The National Review has a good article about how innocent families were subjected to tactics last seen in Hitler's Germany when the Gestapo raided the homes of anyone suspected of less than adoration of Der Fuhrer.

Go read - and then demand your local representative open an investigation into the Demonrats who ordered these raids, and bring charges against them. I will.

Happy Earth Day!

Mother Gaea is celebrating with fireworks - a volcano erupts in Chile, spewing ash and horrible greenhouse gases like sulfur oxides and that evil pollutant CO2 miles into the stratosphere.

Sunsets in the southern hemisphere might be more colorful for a while.

And, with one "act of God", years of greenies' work to destroy fossil fuel power generation is undone...

For my part, I'm running a bunch of lights I don't need, and taking a chilly ride out back on my 2-stroke dirt bike.

Hey Algore! I want a refund on that glowbull worming you sold us!

I've got a new job!

I start Monday. Electrical engineering and some mechanical design - dream job! 33 miles one way, all back roads - one stoplight.

Got to file for IL UI once more, then I'm done.

Ready for Hitlary?

You better be! She's announced she's running for President - and, of course, the real powers will ensure she is elected unless we all work to prevent that.

Her announcement included this statement:
From her mother’s own childhood – in which she was abandoned by her parents – to her work going door-to-door for the Children’s Defense Fund to her battling to create the Children’s Health Insurance Program, she’s fought children and families all her career.
They call it a "typo" about her fighting children and families - but from her record - what we can see, anyway - this is the honest truth.

Ready for Hitlary? I am!

Looks like other people are ready, too:

Found here.

Another useless law attempt

By a Demonrat. What a surprise!

New York congressman Steve Israel wants to ban "undetectable" 3D printed guns. 

Yet another law in search of a problem. For criminals, stolen or black market conventional guns are ever so much easier and cheaper to obtain, and a few orders of magnitude more reliable.

As far as "undetectable" goes, so far I haven't seen a printed gun that does not have at least the chamber and barrel made of metal. A fully composite gun today might be good for a couple shots before the barrel melted. Perhaps someday we will be able to print ceramics suitable for gun barrel pressures, but not in the near future.

Free book!

Dianne Feinstein does not want you to know about this.

Link to downloadable PDF copy of The Anarchist Cookbook

I wouldn't expect someone of DiFi's caliber to have read the US Constitution, let alone understand what it says.

Make it every day!

Damn. Forgot to check, and missed Carbon Belch Day again this year. It was March 28th.

So, I missed the big celebration, but around here every day is carbon belch day. 2-stroke engines abound, and are used regularly, as are our several pre-pollution-control vehicles. Not to mention the shooting range out back that gets regular use.

That reminds me - got to go out and put new plugs in the F150 with the non-pollution-controlled 300 CID straight six - I really would like the truck to get better than 8 MPG...

And remember to turn on all your lights, light off a big bonfire, and keep your engines running on April 22nd. I sure will!

Victim Disarmament Activist Sarah Brady dead at 73. The enemies of freedom keep losing foot soldiers.

Governor Brownback of Kansas brings his state into compliance with the Constitution. Another state on the right side of the law. Five states now. Remember how concealed carry looked in the 1980's?

 Wyoming has some work to do yet - they are only CC for residents - all others need permits. Wrong.
