A few years ago a friend of mine flew out for a funeral and forgot a small .22 handgun in his carry-on bag, and he got all the way through the security too. He didn’t realize he did it himself until he was unpacking after his arrival at the house, and it blew his mind how lucky he was. Another friend that drove out instead of flying took it back for him afterwards in their car. Last year I almost took some bullets with me that were in my shaving kit bag I had stuck in there “temporarily” after a camping trip and had forgotten all about them. If I had not dumped that bag out looking for something else that morning I couldn’t find, I may have had a long day at the airport! Double check your stuff folks… it happens.

I’ve got that beat. I got up early one morning camping in the forest, the air was perfectly still, crisp and cool, and as I looked at the trees in front of me I heard a crack, and then seconds later watched a 50′(?) tall pine tree fall over crashing to the ground right next to the tent. My hunting partner started yelling from inside the tent wondering what the heck was going on out there; scared the poo right out of him, LOL. Actually, we were quite lucky I suppose. Now how many have seen that in their lives ‘eh? Another minute in that tent and I would have missed it, the timing perfect.
That reminds me. I haven't drank my prune juice today.
Bummers. I blinked during the video and missed it and it wouldn't reload. Guess I'll wait till the next drop.

If they truly know who they are, and if such a small percentage, then why all the effort to disarm everybody and prevent them from defending themselves? Go work on the 400, get them off the street, and leave everybody else alone. I’m sure the gang-bangers will respect these letters as much as the gun free zone signs, ha!

I have to say, in all my years on this good Earth, I have never seen an administration that finds it so easy to lie. From the WH on down through all the various government agencies, their first instinct is to LIE. It’s an insult to every citizen in this country that they hold us in such low regard.

LOL. Al is thinking… “If I had a daughter, she’d look just like Aisha McShaw….”

I wouldn’t be surprised that whomever the person at the NTSB was that answered the phone thought that if the Station KTVU was that dumb to ask, then they should just go with it. That, or perhaps even thought the NTSB was being “punked” with a fake phone call? Whatever happened, the station sure has some internal reviews to do in their quest to be the “first-est with the most-est” as is so common in media today.

Is lunch bag a bad word… *****?
June 19, 2013 at 4:26pm
I was a “brown ******” all through school, so missed all this fun I suppose. I was supposed to make sure that bag lasted all week too, bringing it home each day, ha! Actually, I don’t even remember a cafeteria at all in the elementary schools I attended back in the day, and sometimes went home for lunch if not bring it. I do remember being able to buy a coffee cake, sweet roll, etc., at what they called “nutrition” break in the mornings when I got to Jr. High though, and later the High School had a decent cafeteria when attending there. Just didn’t use it much at all… that was for “rich kids,” LOL.
A secret law, interpreted in secret, by secret courts… How many laws made things so-called “legal” before challenged in court and shot down as “illegal.” Heck, even parts of Obamacare were just shot down as unconstitutional (illegal) adding to a long list of things passed by Congress that were later found to be wrong. The sham here on all “legal” talk is that nobody has been able to challenge it in a court of law because it was kept so secret! The last time it was tried they were told they had no standing because they couldn’t prove that it was going on, nobody could even talk about it, a Catch-22 of sorts. NOW all that is different, we KNOW it is going on… so drop the “it’s legal” spin folks, that dog don’t hunt, not until the Supreme Court says it does.

Egypt today… Libya.. the Arab Spring.. all Obama screw-ups in outcome. Syria probably the next. We seem to be creating, funding, and arming more radical enemies for ourselves than the other way ’round.

The IRS is buying spying equipment too. The DHS is nothing but a militarized national police force, putting all the agencies and too much power into too few hands. A private domestic army of sorts, at the whim of the executive branch.

Bull. The arrogance of somebody with such little regard for our individual rights. I am appalled that he can think he knows best and can decide the scope of those inherent rights at his whim, to cast them aside as “he” sees fit, and whenever “he” wants. They’re aren’t his to give and take, they’re mine! Give all yours you want away, but keep your noses out of ours. Go sell your crazy progressive propaganda ‘all for my safety’ BS somewhere else, we aren’t buying it here. I’d rather take my chances…

To add to the absurdity of it all in how our laws are actually enforced, the NSA is supposed to only spy on foreign countries etc., and more an arm of the military by the way. Because it’s illegal for the NSA to spy on Americans, or even ask to do so, they just get the FBI (which is domestic and can legally do so), to do it for them and then basically hand it all over for them to run with. The FBI goes to the “secret” pencil whipping court on the NSA’s behalf to give the illusion of being legal, and thus technically not the military spying on citizens. How stupid is that and an abuse of intent within the law. I’ve long said that The Patriot Act and the formation of the DHS is the biggest mistake this country ever made, too much power in too few hands, and all under the executive branch open to abuse; let alone any accountability. More evident each passing day.

What a load of…. I’m “traumatized” this nation has reached this level of self-imposed indoctrination that even kindergarten kids can be treated as a threat to society. Excuse me while I go puke….

What threat to national security? I read the Rosen story piece, and frankly think anybody could have predicted No. Korean actions with the addition of more international sanctions etc. Regardless, it was certainly not the worst security leak the DOJ has ever seen, as per Holder. In fact if it was, then certainly Obama would have been briefed on it if so bad, though like always he says he knew nothing about it! Everything is some national security issue to this administration, it’s all political spin and about executive power more than anything. Fox news was on the “enemy list,” so they went after them, pure and simple…
May 29, 2013 at 10:31am
LOL! I can see it, but hard to believe it became a national media story… maybe not that hard after all.
Now, on the more serious side… Where can I get my hands on that Snowman Kettle? I think it’s pretty neat, ha!

This is where all registration leads… confiscation is next, one step at a time. Universal background check legislation is part of that process, giving the ATF everything it needs for the Feds to take next step. It has nothing to do with making schools safer, or lowering crime…a facade of false promises and illusion.

If they decide to move here, I’ll fly out and help them pack on my own dime.

Maybe they planned a Pied Piper event with bagpipes to lure out all the terrorists in the country. This agency should be canceled as a waste of money, an abuser or both our rights and fiscal irresponsibility, while trying to create a purpose to go with its huge budget. Too much power in too few hands, and instead of an agency to coordinate intelligence to stop foreign terrorist attacks, has morphed into a national police force by another name answering only to the executive branch. Exactly the type of thing the founders of this country warned about…

Progressive Democrats are out of control with knee-jerk legislation and eager-beaver followers seeking to seize all our firearms anyway they can, and the heck with people’s rights. True Liberalism is dead, hijacked by elitist Progressives that don’t care for individual rights, only collective control, and tyranny is taking a hold. They want what “they” want, and everybody better remember that next trip to the polls. It’s like the book Animal Farm happening in real life!
