The Family That Shoots Together Stays Together


This is one of the reasons that an armed invasion of the USA would fail.

Unfortunately we are being silently invaded by stealth with the help of spineless liberal politicians of all parties who choose to ignore the problem.


Evil Causes People To Be Stupid


Elderly Tucker man had struggled with burglar
By CHANDLER BROWN
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Published on: 03/21/08
It was about 11:30 p.m. one night this week when 81-year-old Robert Jenkins heard someone break down the door of his Tucker home. Jenkins, a retired state transportation worker, grabbed his .38-caliber pistol from a bedroom closet and confronted a lone intruder in the kitchen. "When he saw me, he said, 'Give me that gun,'" Jenkins recalled Friday. "Then he lunged at me, so I shot him." The first bullet hit the man in the chest, Jenkins said, "but he kept lunging for me and beating me" in the head and chest. "So I shot him again," Jenkins said. That bullet hit the intruder in the neck. "I just wondered how much longer he was going to live because I saw blood flowing out across the floor," Jenkins said by phone. "It seemed like an hour, but I guess it was 45 seconds, and he was dead."
Peggy Jenkins, 71, was in the couple's bedroom dialing 911. "I heard two shots," she said. "I knew someone was dead." That someone was 25-year-old Jynard Marshall, an Atlanta man who broke into the elderly couple's home near Lawrenceville Highway on Tuesday night. Marshall previously had served prison time on a robbery and drug conviction in Fulton County.
DeKalb County police said the shooting was justified and they did not plan to charge Robert Jenkins. If it happened again, "I'd do the exact same thing," Robert Jenkins said. "But I hope I don't have to."
Don't mess with old people!

Liberalism vs Conservatism vs Free Thinking Independent

Mamet vs. the Greek Chorus
By Jonah Goldberg
March 22, 2008

David Mamet, considered by some to be the greatest living playwright, has proclaimed for all to hear - but few to listen - that he is no longer "a brain-dead liberal."
Mamet uses the phrase "brain-dead liberal" in quotation marks precisely because he was never actually brain dead. Rather, he just told the relevant parts of his brain to play dead whenever inconvenient facts staged an assault on his cranial bunker.

"As a child of the '60s," he recently wrote in a startling and lively essay for the Village Voice, "I accepted as an article of faith that government is corrupt, that business is exploitative, and that people are generally good at heart."
But Mamet has changed his mind. The accretions left from wave after crashing wave of reality made it impossible for him to carry the load of his cognitive dissonance.

Mamet invokes John Maynard Keynes' response to criticism that he changed his mind: "When the facts change, I change my opinion. What do you do, sir?"

Mamet has committed the sin of free-thinking in a world that defines it as "ideological rigidity" while dubbing conformity "diversity." Already, critics are saying his work is slipping. Soon, they will say his work was never that great to begin with (that's what they've been doing to Dennis Miller for his heresy). The more Mamet rejects the divine pieties of the left and thinks for himself, the more the Greek chorus of straitjacketed "free thinkers," their heads shaking in unison, will tsk-tsk Mamet's rigidity.

John Adams


HBO is starting a "John Adams" 7 part series tonight Sunday 16 March 2008 based on the book by David McCullogh. I enjoy historical movies and books. I look forward to watching this HBO series.

Nature Rules The Climate


Nature, Not Human Activity, Rules the Climate

NYC Climate Conference Further Debunks ‘Consensus’ Claims

Climate Skeptics Reveal ‘Horror Stories’ of Scientific Suppression

Scientists skeptical of man-made climate fears meeting at the 2008 International Conference on Climate Change in New York City described the “absolute horror stories” about how some scientific journals have engaged in “outrageous and unethical behavior” in attempting to suppress them from publishing their work in peer-reviewed journals. The March 2-4 groundbreaking conference, which featured about 100 speakers with over 500 people attending, presented the report of a team of international scientists who formed a group to counter the UN IPCC.

The event, which garnered significant international and U.S. media attention, featured many current and former UN IPCC scientists from around the world. The international climate conference built on the momentum of growing number of skeptics as the conference showcased a new report by a team of international scientists who formed a group to counter the UN IPCC called the “Nongovernmental International Panel of Climate Change” (NIPCC). The skeptical scientist report was titled “Nature, Not Human Activity, Rules the Climate.”

Key findings of the NIPCC’s climate findings:

(1) Most of climate change is caused by natural forces.
(2) The human contribution is not significant.
(3) Solar-activity changes are the main cause of climate change.

Climate Scientist Dr. S. Fred Singer, former director the US Weather Satellite Service and past vice chairman of the U.S. National Advisory Committee on Oceans and Atmosphere, told the conference that the IPCC “chose to ignore these facts, because they conflicted with the conclusion that global warming is anthropogenic (man-made).

Brave Bunny

Remember the Monty Python comedy skit about the killer bunny? How about a brave bunny attacking a snake and chasing it up a tree. Don't believe it? Watch the video. I added a snippet of the Monty Python killer bunny skit at the beginning for those who've forgot it or haven't seen it.

Texas Teen Hero


Lake Jackson teen awarded Silver Star for gallantry in Afghanistan

CAMP SALERNO, Afghanistan (AP) — A 19-year-old medic from Texas will become the first woman in Afghanistan and only the second female soldier since World War II to receive the Silver Star, the nation's third-highest medal for valor.

Army Spc. Monica Lin Brown saved the lives of fellow soldiers after a roadside bomb tore through a convoy of Humvees in the eastern Paktia province in April 2007, the military said. After the explosion, which wounded five soldiers in her unit, Brown ran through insurgent gunfire and used her body to shield wounded comrades as mortars fell less than 100 yards away, the military said.

''She just did what she was trained to do," her 74-year-old grandmother, Katy Brown, said from her Lake Jackson home on Sunday.
She said she is not surprised by her granddaughter's heroics.
''She's just a strong, strong young woman, and she's very caring," Katy Brown said.
Monica Brown told her grandmother she didn't have time to be scared.

The military said Brown's "bravery, unselfish actions and medical aid rendered under fire saved the lives of her comrades and represents the finest traditions of heroism in combat."

Appearance

Yes your appearance does matter. The way you dress helps signal to people what type of person you are. This video is a good illustration of that in a funny way. I did laugh out loud (LOL) at some of the scenes.

Expelled

The trailer for Ben Stein's new movie "Expelled" about scientists who are persecuted for doubting Darwinism. In theaters on April 18.

video

Good for Ben Stein. He takes up the fight against those who are only for free speech if it is theirs. But if you don't agree with them you better shut up or they will try to destroy you.

Looks like a good movie. I will go see it when it's released.

Cactus Cuties

The Cactus Cuties sing The National Anthem

This is a video of the Cactus Cuties, very talented young ladies (Andi, Baylee, Blaire, Madeline and Tatum) ranging in age from 8 to 13 singing The Star Spangled Banner. The performance was in front of over 11,000 people at the Texas Tech vs Texas basketball game January 20, 2008.

video

These young girls are great singers. I'm so glad that at least some of our young people are learning about our American heritage.

Thanks to: Don N.

Sing To Sleep

Every night, a doting father used to sing his two young sons to sleep. He would sing all the gentle lullabies that his mother used to sing to him. One day, he overheard his four-year-old son tell his three-year-old son, "If you pretend that you're asleep, he'll stop."
