The Stimulus Bill

Aka the load of pork shoved down America's throats.

The Democrats in Congress should be ashamed of themselves. CBO reports 7% will actually reach the economy this year (just how will this stimulate anything?) but there is 350+ million for STD research? Thankfully all the Republicans and 11 Democrats decided to take a stand.

If one of these fine people is your rep - please drop them a note of thanks today. Peter Roskam - yours is in the mail.

If you open it

Plan to drink it.

That was the advice from a winemaker when we toured his vineyard several years ago. So tonight we did just that.

Rebel Red has a wonderful flavor. Wine snobs probably won't like it but it was excellent.

Skateboarding in Kabul

A long time ago I spent my spare time doing a couple of things - playing basketball, swimming, and riding my skateboard. Loved it. Streets, ramps, whatever. Managed to never break anything :)

Instapundit points to a place one might have never expected kids skating - Kabul, Afghanistan.

No room at the inn

Ok - the gun shop. Stopped at GAT Guns on the way home from my father-in-laws house today and there was no parking spots available. The large snow mounds didn't help but every available spot was full. People were playing create-a-space. I was planning on buying today but I guess it was not meant to be.

A Reason to own a iPhone

A Ballistic Computer

Of course I'd want one of KAC's SR-15s to go along with it...

Cardinals vs Steelers

Congrats to both teams and their fans. This is the Super Bowl I was hoping for (once my Bears were eliminated). I have an interesting conflict. Do I wear my Cardinals jersey or my Steeler's coat? Or both? The coat got a number of comments out shopping today - even a not so nice one from a Ravens fan...

Go Cards!

Obama and the Titanic

Time Magazine Editor Richard Stengel glowingly called Barack Obama "a Titanic figure".

Which is great as we all know how well the Titanic turned out

If handguns cause crime, mine’s defective

Handgun Podcast

A simple statement that is just so true. The podcast is worth listening to.

Some things just make sense

Bad Weekend at Home

If you were a shredder or a router.

The wife was cleaning up and shredding old papers when the shredder made an awful noise.

The shredder, a nice crosscut model was fed a vaccination tag.

The shredder survived (kinda). The tag, did not.

Out in the garage I was putting away some Christmas stuff when I knocked my router off the shelf. It's over 20 years old. Sad. I had wanted a new router but now this way...

That router had been a part of book shelfs, molding, a fireplace mantle, cabinet doors, and so much more.
