28 As a South Jersian (living at the foot of the Seaside Bridge - thanx Sandy), I can tell you gun sales here have been outta sight for six months at least. My local gun shop had a wall of ARs (at least 50) just six months ago. Last month I dropped in and there were NO long guns of any type.

Plenty of handguns, prices stable, but ammo only for range members/users or gun buyers.

I've had several neighbors ask me to sell them one of my guns. Not happening.

I always kept my ammo stocked up so I'm OK there. There are no military type long guns of any breed, historical or otherwise, within 100 miles of me. People believe war is coming.

True, but they don't have an actual audience. Network shows that get cancelled after their maiden episodes draw 5x or more the number of viewers. There are far bigger fish to fry.

- "America's Ph.D Bust"

Definitely. The academe no longer is a growth industry. Public money schools are dealing with budget calamities. Private schools already are staffed to the rafters.

- "Sequestration And The Coming Depression"

Let's not walk by the giant neon elephants in the room. Our economy is on an express elevator ride to oblivion because for decades taxes have been too high, regulations have been to broad and the government has been too big and has engaged in excessive spending. Then in the final analysis it'll be the entitlement programs that'll put the final nails in the coffin. Outside the coffee klatches and sewing circles of the chattering classes politics has severe real world consequences.

Then you should watch Batman: Under The Red Hood. It contains 2 Robins.

A better title for that news line would have been, DC Comics to kill off Bruce Wayne's son. With that line its going to be like the last time they killed Robin. Yeah "everyone loves Robin" but they all see Robin as Dick Grayson. Jason Todd wasn't really that well liked. So its again people possibly thinking that they're killing off Dick Grayson again or Tim Drake.

If conservatives were smart (which we aren't... politically, at least), we would make fun of the Obamas showing up everywhere. Contrast them with Republicans who shut up and go away after their day in the spotlight is over.

That story is so much crap:

"Someone made a bad decision by not buying the proper insurance. They then followed it up and made another bad decision by insisting on going to an overpriced hospital. They paid for it themselves, that is exactly how it should work."

102 So a big gun-range in Dallas caught fire over the weekend when some douche-nozzle was firing tracer rounds and one somehow got caught in a wall. The FD couldn't really fight the fire because Live Ammunition and Fire Do Not Mix.

My question- did the range have rules against firing tracers (the one I use does)? If not, why not? If so, do they have grounds to sue the jackass who burned their building to the ground?

Follow-up to that second one- if they do have grounds to sue, might their Insurance compel them to do so, rather than just paying the claim?

The dudes on Golf Channel this morning were saying that there are stats to support that it gives an advantage, although that was not the rationale the USGA used in their decision to consider the ban.

I realize the PGA is trying to show support for the younger players, who I think are more inclined to use the anchored putters, but I have a feeling it won't matter in the USGA's decision.

You have to use ammo purchased at that range. Couldn't find any restrictions that tracers weren't allowed. But they also don't reference it in their products section, just ball and self defense rounds. So did an employee sell the tracer rounds or did the shooter bring it in unknown to the employees.

Drought-plagued months of piled-up brush finally got torched yesterday, on the one mild, sunny day between last week's ice storm and today's rain. Rather than carve a hole in the semi-frozen sod, as we have for so many dear old pets, instead, we placed old Buck in his fruit-box coffin on top of the oak, pine, and Christmas trees. We watched as flames reached his box, then, while we were distracted stamping out some burning grass, the box vanished. My mind says hot fire did the job. My heart says angels took him while we were distracted.

You could point this out as well -

In the report, GAI details how the George W. Bush and Bill Clinton administrations both actually took down financial criminals — unlike the Obama administration. Between 2002 and 2008, for instance, GAI points out how a Bush administration task force “obtained over 1,300 corporate fraud convictions, including those of over 130 corporate vice presidents and over 200 CEOs and corporate presidents.”

“Clinton’s DOJ prosecuted over 1,800 S&L [savings and loans] executives, senior officials, and directors, and over 1,000 of them were sent to jail,” GAI adds.

But, despite having “promised more of the same,” especially in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis, the Obama administration’s DOJ has not brought criminal charges against a single major Wall Street executive.

Posted by: Y-not at February 25, 2013 09:44 AM (5H6zj)

I'm a golfer that doesn't use an anchored putter and I think its silly that the argument is that it is not in the spirit of the game. No offense because its not only you that say this but a number of all time greats too.

The 'spirit of the game' was to hit the ball with the head of the stick. It didn't care how you did it. Because there was an optimal way to do it, it basically came down to just one way everyoneeventually did it. If you want to anchor your driver by all means do it. It will be a disadvantage. Stats also show that an anchored putter holds no advantage.And anchoringalso has been a legalpart of the game for over 80 years in one form or another. If it held any significant advantage you could be assured that everyone would have gone to it.

I'm glad the PGA is opposing the ban.

182 Lawrence is a cute young actress but she lucked out. They wouldn't vote for ZD30 Chastain because of "torture" or for Naomi Watts because it was a story of family love, so Lawrence was the default pick.


It's surprising to me simply because the Oscars are so politicized, and JL doesn't fit the mold. She's anti-Hollywood in a lot of ways, (planning to move from H'wood and just work there) she's famous for her "Screw PETA" quote (I love her just for THAT!) she's pro-gun and she starred in The Hunger Games. Now, JL may be a lib for all I know, but in the highly-politicized world of the Oscars, having starred in an anti-Big Government film should have disqualified for life, or at least until she rehabilitates herself by making a good little propaganda film that pleases the Regime.

Don't know how or why they let Lawrence get the win, but I'm glad she won.

The rest of the gun manufacturers in New England should start making plans to move as well.... it's only a matter of time before the "blue" states hike the taxes on guns and ammo and/or ban 'em..... get while the gettins good... those "blue" states might get mad and ban 'em right away but, so what, there are more than enough people looking to buy guns and ammo in the rest of the states right now.... it's a sellers market and the gun manufacturers will do fine even if the "blue" states cancel orders for their swat teams and such.... screw 'em... someone will buy those guns right now somewhere else...

If you would like to register an opinion, your position and any comment you might choose to make are sent to your representatives in Congress. Pop Vox URL is https://www.popvox.com/, the proposed bill is the Crime and Enforcement topic under the name of "Common Sense Legislation to End Gun Violence", the URL for it is https://www.popvox.com/bills/us/113/x101.

253 "I"d be for that, as long as EVERY person who entered said Academy, had to serve at least 4 years as an enlisted person first... with perference on Combat Arms."

There was a study on this back in the old days, about who made a better officer - someone just out of the academy or someone who spent time as enlisted and came through OCS - I don't remember the outcome.

There was lots of pushback when there was a big RIF (reduction in force) and captains ended up as staff sargents. Good arguments to be made on both sides.

You have all the pictures of him bowing to other leaders, you have all of his golf pictures, you have his gay biking pic, you have pics with a number of celebrities, you have pics doing NCAA brackets, you have clip of him talking to Al Sharpton about economics, you have his multiple vacation pics, etc. etc. etc.

I'm torn. I really should set up a mini-RAID box but that's all efforty and effort is bad. I'm thinking two 1 TBs for separate desktop and laptop backups because I have met me and I know damn well that partitioning out a 2 TB won't work because I'll forget which partition is for which backup, yes, even when it's labeled. I'm snowflakey like that.

You're kinda missing the point of the argument. Frankly, I DO think IDs for ammo is not a bad idea, it's the fact that they can commit fraud at will in elections that is so gauling.

The LIV's call it "disenfranchisement," without having a clue what the word means.

275 There was lots of pushback when there was a big RIF (reduction in force) and captains ended up as staff sargents. Good arguments to be made on both sides.


Posted by: jwest at February 25, 2013 11:43 AM (ZDsRL)


Post WW2 RIF? Key there is it was downward move, which is always bad, if done in the same organization.

Used to be that they had to have a seperate Officer class, fromt the edumacated, because they were the only ones who could run logistics, and... read maps...

Now? with todays College Grads? there is very little Military benefit to the education they get in College.... and it would be a huge benefit to those on the Line, to know that those in Charge... actualy knew what the hell they did for a living.

Any change to the current institutions should be made with added emphasis on the NCOs. We all know they are the core of the services.

It'd have been nice to see how the IAF progressed in this respect. Now, I imagine they will regress into their former incompetence. Shame, they could have developed into a formidable force, given their teachers.

I'm all for a separate officer class. The military isn't some democracy, so it needs a more feudal system. Without the certainty that good men are going to die because of the stupidity and inexperience of their leaders, our whole military system would collapse.
