NAFTA No More?

A group of politicians, Republican and Democrat, are looking to repeal the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). Did you notice that, Republicans and Democrats ? Finally the two main parties working toward something that is actually good for American and the American people. Now we just need to see if it gets passed.

That's A Lot of Guns

You want to know why the Government is unlikely to try a gun confiscation plan? It's because in 2009 Americans added 14,000,000 guns to their home inventories. 14,000,000 guns! That's on top of the 250 million or so the ATF estimates is already in the hands of law abiding civilians. That 2009 number is more guns than 21 of the worlds armies have. Folks, keep the USG nervous, try to top that number this year, another 15-20 million would be OK. I'll try to do my part to help out. In a similar vein, this has become my favorite song.

Random Randomness

I've been very busy this week working on the new property. All demo is finally done and I can start on the rehab this week.

I read that Home Land Security wants to read ALL emails originating in this country. Isn't that a Constitutional violation or something?

The Honorable Senator Harry "Fucknut" Reeves calls it a good day when 36,000 folks lose their jobs in one day. Just 36,000. In one day.

Last year Federal regulators shut down 140 banks. So far this year they have shuttered 26. That includes the four that were closed this weekend. The Government claims they have created or saved untold thousands of jobs. So far the only ones I've seen are more Government jobs.

The Supreme Court has heard arguments in the McDonald case. Chicago says they have the right to ban handguns, the plaintiff says they don't. Is this case going to finally settle the question that was never in need of asking? It's a plain as can be, " the right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed". Reports say that the Justices were somewhat ambivalent and peppered both sides, revealing no hint as to their final decision.

Now I'm off to start getting the motor out of the Harley.
