How Gay Do Ya Gotta Be?

I just gotta say, with everything else going on in the world, you know, things like islamic terrorism in general, the proliferation of nuclear weapons amongst terrorist nations and islamic terrorist organizations. The Obamaist dismantling of the American economic system, the proposed dismantling of the American Military. You know, little stuff like that.

This headline caught my eye and I just had to read it.

Bisexual Men Sue Gay Group, Claim Bias

Apparently 3 bisexual men participated in something called the North American Gay Amateur Athletic Alliance Gay Softball World Series.

The 3 guys filed a lawsuit Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Seattle accusing the Alliance of violating Washington State anti-discrimination laws. The men claim that the Alliance “deemed them not gay enough to participate in the series”. But according to Beth Allen, attorney representing the Alliance, the 3 guys "were not discriminated against in any unlawful manner." The attorney went on to say that the Alliance is a private organization and can determine its membership based on its own goals.

Kind of like the Boy Scouts of America is also a private organization, and can determine its membership based on its own goals. And should be free from harassment from thuggish gay rights groups, right?

But I digress.

Apparently the Alliance's rules are such that each softball team can have no more than two heterosexual players and according to the lawsuit, another team accused team D2 of violating that rule.

The three plaintiffs, Steven Apilado, LaRon Charles and Jon Russ all played on the team called D2 that qualified for the 2008 Gay Softball World Series, apparently the other team alleges that Apilado, Charles, and Russ are not gay enough.

It seems that each of the three men were called into a conference room and questioned in front of more than 25 people, they say they were subjected to "personal and intrusive questions" about their sexual attractions and desires to determine if the guys were straight or gay, the lawsuit alleges. It also seems that the Alliance has no category or definition for bisexual or transgender people in its rules, according to the plaintiff's attorney.

The news story says that “At one point during the proceedings, the lawsuit alleges, one of the plaintiffs was told: "This is the Gay World Series, not the Bisexual World Series."

The Alliance has ruled that the three men were "non-gay," stripped the team, D2, of its second-place finish and recommended that the three players be suspended from participating in the World Series for a year, according to the lawsuit.

I have nothing against gays as individuals, I have never discriminated against anyone I perceived to be gay. When I was a manager at a major telephone company I had, at times, gay people reporting to me, they were extremely efficient, highly intelligent and except for one individual, they were excellent at customer service.

But how much gay is enough to be accepted by gays?

Barry O Is a Horse's Ass

I don’t know who the author of this is, but it’s pretty damn funny

Cowboy Wisdom

A cowboy from Texas attends a social function where Barack Obama is trying to gather support for his Health Plan. Once he discovers the cowboy is from President Bush's home area, he starts to belittle him by talking in a southern drawl and single syllable words.

As he was doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head. The cowboy says, "Y'all havin' some problem with them circle flies?"

Obama stopped talking and said, "Well, yes, if that's what they're called, but I've never heard of circle flies."

"Well, sir," the cowboy replies, "Circle flies hang around ranches. They're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end of a horse."

"Oh," Obama replies as he goes back to rambling.
But, a moment later he stops and bluntly asks, "Are you calling me a horse's ass?"

"No, sir," the cowboy replies, "I have too much respect for the citizens of this country to call their president a horse's ass."

"That's a good thing," Obama responds and begins rambling on once more.

After a long pause, the cowboy, in his best Texas
drawl says, "Hard to fool them flies, though."

Don't Blame Me, I Voted Republican!

"This is what change looks like,
Change we can believe in."
Barack Hussein Obama

This will not stand.

No one should be confused about the outcome of Sunday's vote.

This is not the end of the fight it is the beginning of the fight.

The American people spoke decisively against a big government, high tax, Washington knows best, pro trial lawyer centralized bureaucratic health system.

In every recent poll the vast majority of Americans opposed this monstrosity.

Speaker Pelosi knew the country was against the bill. That is why she kept her members trapped in Washington and forced a vote on Sunday.

She knew if she let the members go home their constituents would convince them to vote no.

The Obama-Pelosi-Reid machine combined the radicalism of Alinsky, the corruption of Springfield and the machine power politics of Chicago.

Sunday was a pressured, bought, intimidated vote worthy of Hugo Chavez but unworthy of the United States of America.

- Newt Gingrich, Former Speaker of The House of Representatives

A Campaign Begins Today

America has just witnessed an unconscionable abuse of power. President Obama has betrayed his oath to the nation — rather than bringing us together, ushering in a new kind of politics, and rising above raw partisanship, he has succumbed to the lowest denominator of incumbent power: justifying the means by extolling the ends. He promised better; we deserved better.

He calls his accomplishment “historic” — in this he is correct, although not for the reason he intends. Rather, it is an historic usurpation of the legislative process — he unleashed the nuclear option, enlisted not a single Republican vote in either chamber, bribed reluctant members of his own party, paid-off his union backers, scapegoated insurers, and justified his act with patently fraudulent accounting. What Barack Obama has ushered into the American political landscape is not good for our country; in the words of an ancient maxim, “what starts twisted, ends twisted.”

His health-care bill is unhealthy for America. It raises taxes, slashes the more private side of Medicare, installs price controls, and puts a new federal bureaucracy in charge of health care. It will create a new entitlement even as the ones we already have are bankrupt. For these reasons and more, the act should be repealed. That campaign begins today.

Obama Is My Shepherd...

A friend forwarded this to me in an e-mail message. I don’t know who the author is, but I like it.

From: the first book of democrat
Psalm 2008-2012
Obama is my shepherd, I shall always want.
He leadeth me beside the still factories.
He restoreth my faith in the Republican Party.
He guideth me to the path of unemployment.
Yea, though I walk thru the valley
Of the bread line, I’ll probably go hungry.
Obama has anointed my income with taxes.
My expenses runneth over my income.
Surely, poverty and hard living will follow me all the days
Of his term.
From hence forth we will live all the days of our lives in a
Rented home with an overseas landlord.
But I am glad I am an American, I am glad that I am free. But I
Wish I was a dog and Obama was a tree.

"Americans grew tired of being thought to be dumb by the rest of the world,
So they went to the polls and removed all doubt."

CSU Student Board Votes to Retain Concealed Carry

"We wrote this bill because we felt that a student should have the right to self defense on campus. We don't believe that crime stops at a campus' borders."

CSU Junior Cooper Anderson and author of the student government bill.

For several years now, Colorado State University (CSU) in Fort Collins Colorado has allowed, with restrictions, students with valid Carry Concealed Weapon (CCW) permits to carry their handguns on campus. (Note; in Colorado you must be at least 21 years old to be eligible for a handgun permit, and you must have training from a certified instructor.)

In October of this year, the CSU campus police and the university’s president, Dr. Anthony Frank, and other unnamed “public safety experts” have proposed a change in that policy. These anti-gun “experts” think the CSU campus should become a “gun-free zone”, except for “security officers”.

The CSU faculty senate asked for a review of the CSU gun policy sometime last year, because of the April 2007 mass murder at Virginia Tech University. Seung-hui Cho, a senior student at Virginia Tech killed 32 people and wounded at least 25 others in his cowardly rampage.

CSU has never had a violent gun incident on campus.

But despite that significant fact, at Colorado State University, unnamed public safety experts and the university president's cabinet all support a “gun ban”.

The president’s office said it wanted to hear from the student government to get their take on the proposed ban. So, on Wednesday night, the student governing body voted 21-3 in FAVOR of keeping CSU a conceal carry campus. Five student senators were absent or did not vote.

CSU spokesman Brad Bohlander said President Anthony Frank would consider the student leaders' resolution before making a decision. Apparently CSU's Board of Governors will discuss the issue at a meeting Friday morning in the system's Denver office, but the final decision is Frank's.

"Our police can respond to an incident anywhere on the main campus within about two minutes or less, and the highly populated classrooms in about a minute. They have all gone through active shooter training," CSU spokesperson Brad Bohlander said.

Bohlander obviously isn’t aware that at Virginia Tech, at least 30 of the victims were killed within the first 2 minutes of the attack.

After all, when seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

When police arrive at such a scene it still takes a few minutes to assess and prioritize the situation.

Regarding the university administration, faculty senate and their unnamed experts, I am constantly amazed at the ignorance of the anti-gun nuts regarding the issue of carrying a concealed handgun. Getting your Concealed Handgun Permit (CCW) in Colorado is a lengthy and expensive process. You MUST take a training class that covers the legal aspects of when you can justifiably use deadly force and when you can’t. I have never heard of a CCW class that was under $100.00. In Adams County the combined fees of applying for a CCW permit was $152.00 in 2006, I’m not sure if this has changed. So, you’re looking at a minimum of $252.00 just to obtain the permit. This doesn’t include the cost of the handgun itself.

Before a permit is approved, a background check is performed by the Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI).

Those individuals seeking a carry permit are decent law abiding citizens who have made a conscience choice to defend themselves with deadly force if necessary, they understand what deadly force is and what the consequences are if they are forced to use it.

Simply put, permit carriers obey the law in Colorado.

After undergoing training and going through the permit process they have become known to the State of Colorado and their home County as a person with the intent to carry a concealed firearm.

They simply aren’t going to start shooting up a campus or a mall. There are a lot of permit holders in Colorado. At sometime or another you have stood or sat next to someone with a permit and a handgun and you never knew it.

Murderous cowards like Cho and don’t forget the Fort Hood islamic terrorist Nidal Hasan, aren’t going to bother with the legal aspects of concealed carry. Yes, I know, in both instances the murderers bought their handguns legally. However, both purchases should not have occurred. They should have been rejected based on the previous actions and history of both of these men. The purchases were allowed because of political correctness in both instances. Cho was deeply disturbed mentally and emotionally, but the powers that be at Virginia Tech knew about his problems, but chose a policy of don’t ask don’t tell. Hasan had already been investigated, somewhat, by the FBI. The Bureau also chose not to ask or tell regarding his islamic, jihadist rants.

These were failures of the vetting process for purchase of firearms. Not failures of the concealed carry permit process.

All of you anti-gun left wing nuts shouldn’t be so ignorantly paranoid. And before you speak out on something try to get your facts straight.

One positive note, in an e-mail statement, Larimer County Sheriff Jim Alderden said his office would "not hold or detain a valid permit holder who violates that policy, nor would his department have anything to do with enforcing that policy."

The good Sheriff also said he did not believe unelected university officials have any authority to enact such a ban, which would "directly counter" Colorado law.

Happy Thanksgiving To All, and May God Bless You

From the Rocky Mountain Family Council:

Thanksgiving Proclamations

In November of 1621, the Pilgrims had what is considered to be the first Thanksgiving. On November 29th, 1623, three years after the Pilgrims' arrival and two years after the first Thanksgiving, William Bradford, who was Governor of the Plymouth Colony, made an official proclamation of a day of Thanksgiving:

To all ye Pilgrims:

In as much as the great Father has given us this year an abundant harvest of Indian corn, wheat peas, beans, squashes, and garden vegetable, and has made the forest to abound with game and the sea with fish and clams, and inasmuch as he has protected us ..., has spared us from pestilence and disease, has granted us freedom to worship God according to the dictates of our own conscience;

Now I, your magistrate, do proclaim that all ye Pilgrims, with your wives and ye little ones, do gather at ye meeting house ..., on Thursday, November 29th, of the year of our Lord one thousand six hundred and twenty-three, and the third year since ye Pilgrims landed on Pilgrim Rock, there to listen to ye pastor and render thanksgiving to ye Almighty God for all His blessings.

On October 21st, 1785, John Langdon, who was the Governor of New Hampshire, a signer of the U.S. Constitution as well as a U.S. Senator, made this official Proclamation for a General Thanksgiving to the State of New Hampshire:

The munificent Father of Mercies, and Sovereign Disposer of Events, having been graciously pleased to relieve the United States of America from the Calamities of a long and dangerous war.... preventing Famine from entering our Borders; -- eventually restored to us the blessings of Peace, on Terms advantageous and honourable.

...It therefore becomes our indispensable Duty, not only to acknowledge, in general with the rest of Mankind, our dependence on the supreme Ruler of the Universe, but as a people peculiarly favoured to testify our Gratitude to the Author of all our Mercies, in the most solemn and public manner.

I Do therefore, agree to a Vote of the General Court, appointing Thursday the 24th Day of November next, to be observed and kept as a Day of General Thanksgiving throughout this State ...

On November 8, 1783, John Hancock, the Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and first member of the Continental Congress to sign the Declaration of Independence, issued A Proclamation for a Day of Thanksgiving to celebrate the victorious conclusion of the Revolutionary War:

Whereas... these United States are not only happily rescued from the Danger and Calamities to which they have been so long exposed but their Freedom, Sovereignty and Independence ultimately acknowledged.

And whereas... the Interposition of Divine Providence in our Favor hath been most abundantly and most graciously manifested and the Citizens of these United States have every Reason for Praise and Gratitude to the God of their salvation.

Impresses therefore with an exalted Sense of Blessings by which we are surrounded and of our entire Dependence on that Almighty Being from whose Goodness and Bounty they are derived; I do. .. appoint Thursday the eleventh Day of December next to be religiously observed as a Day of Thanksgiving and Prayer..

On September 25th, 1789, Congress unanimously approved a resolution asking the President to proclaim a National Day of Thanksgiving and on October 3, 1789, while in New York City, President George Washington shared his Thanksgiving Proclamation:

Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor...

Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the twenty-sixth day of November next to be devoted by the people of these United States... that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations , and beseech Him to pardon our national and other promote the knowledge and practice of the true religion and virtue...

On October 3, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued a formal proclamation, passed by an Act of Congress initiating the first annual National Day of Thanksgiving.

No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the most high God who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy...

I do, therefore, invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens... [it is] announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations are blessed whose God is the Lord ... It has seemed to me fit and proper that God should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and voice, by the whole American people.

Let's all remember the words of these great men and thank God for His blessings.

Observations on Tactics, Firearms, Self Defense & Life In The Civilized World

A friend of mine forwarded to me the following quotes in an e-mail.

If you support the full meaning of the second amendment to the U.S. Constitution, these thoughts might be of interest to you.

If you don’t support the second amendment, then you need to educate yourself and quit being such a dumb ass.

Clint Smith, Director of Thunder Ranch, is part Drill Instructor, And part stand up comic. Here are a few of his observations on Tactics, firearms, self defense and life as we know it in the Civilized world.

"The handgun would not be my choice of weapon if I knew I was going to a fight....I'd choose a rifle, a shotgun, an RPG or an atomic Bomb instead."

"The two most important rules in a gunfight are: Always cheat and Always win."

"Every time I teach a class, I discover I don't know something."

"Don't forget, incoming fire has the right of way."

"Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets. I may get killed with my own gun, but he's gonna have to beat me to death with it, cause it's going to be empty."

"If you're not shootin', you should be loadin'. If you're not loadin, you should be movin', if you're not movin', someone's gonna Cut your head off and put it on a stick."

"When you reload in low light encounters, don't put your flashlight in your back pocket... If you light yourself up, you'll look like an angel or the tooth fairy...and you're gonna be one of 'em pretty soon."

"Do something. It may be wrong, but do something."

"Nothing adds a little class to a sniper course like a babe in a Ghilliesuit."

"Shoot what's available, as long as it's available, until something else becomes available."

"If you carry a gun, people will call you paranoid. That's ridiculous.
If I have a gun, what in the hell do I have to be paranoid about."

"Don't shoot fast, shoot good."

"You can say 'stop' or 'alto' or use any other word you think will work but I've found that a large bore muzzle pointed at someone's head is pretty much the universal language."

"You have the rest of your life to solve your problems. How long you live depends on how well you do it."

"You cannot save the planet. You may be able to save yourself and your family."

"Thunder Ranch will be here as long as you'll have us or until someone makes us go away and either way it will be exciting."

More Excellent Gun Wisdom.......

The purpose of fighting is to Win!

There is no possible victory in defense. The sword is more important than the shield, and skill is more important than either.

The final weapon is the brain. All else is supplemental.

1. Don't pick a fight with an old man. If he is too old to fight, He'll
just kill you.

2. If you find yourself in a fair fight, your tactics suck.

3. I carry a gun cause a cop is too heavy.

4. When seconds count, the cops are just minutes away.

5. A reporter did a human-interest piece on the Texas Rangers. The
reporter recognized the Colt Model 1911 the Ranger was carrying and
asked him 'Why do you carry a 45?' The Ranger responded, 'Because
they don't make a 46.'

6 An armed man will kill an unarmed man with monotonous regularity.

7. The old sheriff was attending an awards dinner when a lady commented
on his wearing his sidearm 'Sheriff, I see you have your pistol. Are
you expecting trouble?' 'No ma'am. If I were expecting trouble, I
would have brought my rifle.'

8. Beware the man who only has one gun. He probably knows how to use

'The true Soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because He loves what is behind him.' -G. K. Chesterton

A people that values its privileges above its principles will soon lose both.

'Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not.' ~ Thomas Jefferson

"A general dissolution of principles and manners will more surely overthrow the liberties of America than the whole force of the common enemy." --Samuel Adams

And The Terror Resumes…

This cartoon just about says it all regarding liberal butt kissing of anything and anyone muslim. To most liberals, the barbaric and archaic religion that is islam is the cat’s meow. (Do muslims consider cats unclean like they consider dogs unclean? Hope so.)

If this were not so, then why is there such a push to call Nidal Hasan, the Fort Hood terrorist, “disturbed” and “innocent by reason of insanity.”

He’s not insane, he’s a “radical” muslim. He just did what many “radical” muslims want to do.

This weekend a story broke about a threat to replicate the Fort Hood massacre at Fort Benning in Georgia. A box was found with an anonymous note and package, reported by The Army Times as a box of bullets Thursday morning outside a motor pool area at Fort Benning, located near Columbus, Georgia.

An unnamed witness was quoted as saying to Army Times;

“The note said ‘tell the commanding general to call off all charges or there will be a re-enactment of Fort Hood,’” this was in reference to charges against Nidal Hasan who is charged in the shooting deaths of 13 solders at Fort Hood. Hasan also wounded dozens more.

Hasan’s attack was a most cowardly act, as most islamic terrorist attacks are. They love to attack the unarmed, those who are not expecting an attack.

At any rate, America is woefully unprepared and ripe for more of these islamic terrorist attacks with the likes of Barack Hussein Obama and Eric Holder running the show.

God Speed, and reload often.
