Re: The hubbub about the paper in NY publishing the names and addresses of all the people in the county holding handgun permits.

Besides the arguments we hear all over the media, don't they realize that there likely are several times that many "undocumented" handguns out there?

So, what do they hope to achieve?
(Present tense, since they apparently are not giving up, but are going to court to get the names and addresses in the adjoining county too.)

For reference, if you are better at googling than I am, a couple of days ago there was table out on the web showing countries aroud the world with strict registration laws and giving the number of legal registrations in each next to the number of "undocumented" guns estimated by each country's police to actually be in their citizens' possession.)

I wonder how far a dog like Zeus can see (and run!). Suppose, for example, you used a golf driver and a golf tee to launch first a tennis ball, a little farther each successive time - and then a golf ball, again a little further each time - until reaching 250-300 yards.

I have a feeling...

Just want to remind you all that Obamacare is based on the UK healthcare system:

"Obese who refuse to exercise 'could face benefits cut'"

Overweight or unhealthy people who refuse to attend exercise sessions could have their benefits slashed, in a move proposed by Westminster Council.

LilyBart-
another thing being considered by one of the local councils is to make people pay for their own jail lodging if they are picked up for drugs, public intoxication, or drinking and driving (aka drinks driving).

Imagine. The police decide to put you in jail and then they charge you. Imagine that money-making scheme in the hands of US police forces.

Brrrr, that looks cold.

I hope Meade ran right home and snuggled up to his sweetie for a couple of hours.

The cops already have and abuse this power with confiscations of guns and property whenever they can argue that the funds used to buy them were from illegal activity.

And yes there are cases of police chiefs driving brand new Caddy ATS taken from some drug dealer- but also the deer hunting rifles from some poor rural schmuck busted on a small pot possession.

80% of cops are decent hardworking folks- 20% are just as bad as the criminals. I see the erosion of liberty- and I feel powerless to halt it.

A new toy. A borrowed dog. A winter wonderland. What could be better?

That's a really good question.
I know my husky is tuned in on movement. Something that I can'y see attracts her attention, but it looks like it's limited to 50-75 yds. Even something as big as a deer, if it's a hundred yards away, she'll act as if she doesn't see it.
What always gets me is that labs can count. If we're in the field and shoot three birds the dog will look for three birds.

" I want a boat with THREE propellers!!!!"


"Rep. Jerrold Nadler has an admittedly "out of the ordinary" solution to the coming fight over the debt ceiling.

"There is specific statutory authority that says that the Federal Reserve can mint any non-gold or -silver coin in any denomination, so all you do is you tell the Federal Reserve to make a platinum coin for one trillion dollars, and then you deposit it in the Treasury account, and you pay your bills," Nadler said in a telephone interview this afternoon.

I asked whether he was serious.

"I'm being absolutely serious," he said. "It sounds silly but it's absolutely legal. And it would normally not be proper to consider such a thing, except when you're faced with blackmail to destroy the country's economy, you have to consider things.""


Ya just can't make this shit up.
