Good Posts

There are a couple of posts going around worth following. The first comes from SMASH. He has some links following the rantings of a man claiming to be a former Green Beret and Ranger in Iraq. His story is similar to John "I voted before it before I voted against it" Kerry except that Kerry was in Vietnam or Cambodia (He was almost President?). Anyway, the guy claims to have killed over 200 people on mid-night "Ranger" raids. His story is bunk and he's being exposed for the loser that he is. Check out Michelle Malkin's Vent too. The internet is a wonderful thing for vetting such pretenders. The dismantling of his story is a thing of beauty.

The other comes from Geekwitha.45. He links with an excellent article from a paper in Illinois de-bunking the assualt rifle easily converts to a machine gun myth.

1st Anniversary

Well, my anniversary has come and gone. May 5, 2005 was the date of my first post. It's been fun. I'll be posting on the FN FiveseveN next. It's a cool little pistol that needs some range time.

Happy Mother's Day too.

Great National Review Article

Leo Banks has an article in today's National Review Online on the current situation on a ranch south of Tucson, Arizona. On quote in particular caught my eye.
We did that with the Boston Tea Party, she says. We were taxed without representation and we rose up and changed it. I think the students in the streets and these young ACLU individuals here are being used. When you talk to them you realize it's all emotion. There's no logic. They don't have a clue.
She is Pat King and she owns a ranch 40 miles north of the border. Her ranch is on the front line of the illegal immigration debate. She's talking about the ACLU "volunteers"/useful idiots that show up at Minuteman stations and honk their horns and flash their lights of their cars when the border patrol shows up to enforce our immigration laws.

I had a similar experience with a family member the other day. My wife's cousin was telling me how he would have liked to take May 1 off with the thousands of latinos on the "Day Without Illegals". I asked him why and he said, "solidarity". I asked him what he would have solidarity with and he replied "workers". He was against big business. This is a guy who works in the Pharmaceutical industry. Big business? Pat King is right, it's emotion and no logic. This debate is about sovereignty, not big business or workers.
