An Armed Society Is A Polite Society

(Springfield Armory M 1911 A1 .45 ACP)

An Associated Press story out of Harrison Township, Michigan, reports that a woman driving in rush hour traffic got fed up with other drivers tailgating her. When a man in a pickup truck got too close, she changed lanes and fired one round from a 9 mm, aiming at the tires of the truck. It appears that the woman missed her target, no one was injured.

The driver of the pickup truck then followed her and flagged down a deputy, who stopped and arrested her. I wonder if the jackass who followed her too close will think twice about doing it again. Nah, probably not.

"She said she was tired of people tailgating her," Macomb County Sheriff Mark Hackel said.

The woman was charged with assault with a deadly weapon, discharge of a firearm from a vehicle and use of a firearm during a felony, and held on $50,000 bond.

Now, I know that we can’t go around shooting at every dumb ass driver who follows too closely, but I do feel a little empathy for the woman.

Next time, she ought to use a .45 caliber ACP. A nine millimeter is a stinger of a round, but a .45 ACP is some serious whoop ass.

An armed society is a polite society.

Homosexual Fascism On The March

The Washington Defense of Marriage Alliance (WA-DOMA) has filed an initiative that would require married heterosexual couples to have kids within three years or their marriage would be annulled. This group is an extremist organization and proponent of homosexual marriage and homosexual rights.

In a nutshell, the initiative, if passed, would force married couples to prove they can have children in order to get a marriage license, and if they do not produce children within three years, their marriage would be subject to mandatory annulment.

The organizer of WA-DOMA, Gregory Gadow, seems to be a very queer man. He organized this initiative as a challenge to the Washington Supreme Court’s ruling on Andersen v. King County. The July 2006 court decision, declared that a “legitimate state interest” allows the State Legislature to limit marriage to those couples able to have and raise children together. This decision upheld the State’s ban on homosexual marriage.

Gadow apparently took exception to the decision.

In a printed statement he said;

"For many years, social conservatives have claimed that marriage exists solely for the purpose of procreation. The time has come for these conservatives to be dosed with their own medicine.
If same-sex couples should be barred from marriage because they can not have children together, it follows that all couples who cannot or will not have children together should equally be barred from marriage."

WA-DOMA will have to gather more than 224,000 signatures by July 6 to put the initiative on the November ballot. As liberal as the State of Washington is, or at least, the Seattle metro area, they just might get the signatures required, but hopefully it won’t pass.

Of course, this initiative attempt is yet another attack on traditional marriage. In the general election of 2004, bans on homosexual marriage succeeded at the polls nation-wide. Just as ballot initiatives legalizing homosexual marriage failed nation-wide.

Homosexual activists just won't or can't accept the fact that the great majority of Americans simply will not legalize homosexual marriage at the ballot box.

Tell It Like It Is Tony

I’ve always liked Tony Dungy, Head Coach of the Indianapolis Colts. Right now I like him a whole lot more and it has nothing to do with winning Super Bowl XLI.

When Jim Nantz of CBS talked to Dungy immediately after the game, Nantz said;

Nantz: “This is one of those moments, Tony, where there is also social significance in this victory, and to have your hands on the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Tell me what this means to you right now.”

Tony Dungy’s response was beautiful. He answered;

“I'll tell you what. I'm proud to be representing African-American coaches, to be the first African-American to win this. It means an awful lot to our country. But again, more than anything, I've said it before, Lovie Smith and I, not only the first two African-Americans, but Christian coaches showing that you can win doing it the Lord's way. And we're more proud of that. (Emphasis added)

According to a news report, “the Associated Press reported Dungy's comments about God in stories it moved on its wire service, but the Bloomberg News Service only published the portion regarding African-Americans, and edited out the mention of Christian coaches.”

So, of course the Bloomberg News Service decided to go the Politically Correct route and didn't bother to mention that Tony Dungy is a devout Christian and gives God the credit and glory.

I wonder if Bloomberg would have mentioned Dungy’s religion and gratitude if he were Muslim.

Just a thought.

Does It Take A State Legislature To Raise Your Daughter?

Colorado Senate Bill 07-080, (SB 80) passed out of Committee on a party line vote of 5-4 with Democrats in support and Republicans in opposition. Ostensibly, the bill is aimed at preventing Cervical Cancer. But the if the bill becomes law, it would REQUIRE girls between the ages of 11 and 12 to receive a vaccination against Human Papillomavirus (HPV) before being admitted to any school in Colorado. HPV has been linked to cervical cancer.

The Rocky Mountain Family Council ( strongly opposes this bill.

A RMFC legislative alert states that; “While some will argue that this is a common-sense public health policy, we see several problems. First, this is a new vaccine and the supporting science is new as well. It presumes that every girl is sexually active and at risk for this sexually transmitted disease (STD). There is no vaccine for other STDs (Herpes, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, etc.) and the HPV vaccine will lead to a false sense of security among young women. The best prevention of cervical cancer is abstinence until marriage.

Second, the maker of this vaccine, Merck Pharmaceuticals, is pushing similar legislation nationwide. When legislation which will affect young girls is driven by big drug company profits—it’s wrong. The Rocky Mountain News reports that the three-shot vaccine regimen per girl costs approximately $350.”

The same Rocky Mountain News story reports that Merck Pharmaceuticals is pushing similar legislation across the nation and stands to make $4 billion in sales.

Under Senate Bill 80, about 30,000 middle-school girls in Colorado would be vaccinated. Thirty thousand girls at $350 each amounts to $10,500,000 in Colorado alone. Pretty good deal for Merck.

The bill is sponsored by State Senator Suzanne Williams, Democrat of Aurora, Colorado and State Representative Mike May, Republican of Parker, Colorado.

Senator Williams told the Rocky Mountain News that she learned of the vaccine through her membership in Women in Government, a national advocacy group composed of female lawmakers. The Associated Press reported that Merck has funneled money through Women in Government to promote the vaccine.

The Rocky Mountain News story also reports that; “an official from Merck's vaccine division sits on the Women in Government's Business Council, and that sponsors of many of the vaccine bills nationwide are members of Women in Government.”

The News also said State Senator Suzanne Williams downplayed the connection, saying that by next year other companies are expected to have cervical cancer vaccines on the market.

She also claims that she has never taken a contribution from the drug company.
