The gun that is.
Yesterday the were about 500 folks protesting at the capitol in Lansing in support of our 2nd amendment rights. Given the intent of certain lawmakers in Washington to limit our ability to possess firearms (YES - Registration THEN confiscation) we should be thankful for those who could break away and do that.
I am usually quite careful about making references comparing our modern day politicians to the evil which existed in early 20th century Germany, but I have to also be a little more alert when faced with the billions of rounds being purchased by our federal government and has a purchase order full of redacted information and issued under a non-compete sub-part of federal acquisition law that permits the purchase under an "unusual and compelling urgency".
And it should make us feel better that the "manufacturer is the only one that provides the referenced part numbers for this one time purchase", right? Someone else notes:
" the DHS and most federal and state law enforcement agencies DO NOT use hollow point pistol ammo and expensive Sierra Match King hollow point sniper rounds for "training". Anyone who knows anything about combat simulation training knows that you use the cheapest plinking ammo you can find, and this includes the government. The ammo purchased by the DHS is used for one thing only; killing people."At this point, I am not yet alarmed, but wary.
$4,643,040.00 spent by merely ONE agency that does business in the US, on 'people killing' rounds?

Its worse than we thought.
Back a couple of months ago, we had a few discussions here about the pitiful sales of GM's Chevy Volt, even WITH the monster government incentive. A $7500 rebate just didn't cut it for target buyers of the electric boondoggle of Detroit's once upon a time premier automaker, and sales are worse than flat.
The profits from said eco-box wouldn't pay for the engineering alone much less the tooling and employee cost.
However, the employee cost has apparently brought a little fear to the dues collecting part of the team. So much so, that they have begun to market the volt to a new constituency that is more likely to be swayed by talking green frogs, giant yellow birds, and a fear of drowning polar bears.
Our children. At our public schools.
A little more below.

~ A reminder to keep on talking. We shall not be silenced. - repost from MTTM ~
A very bad thing happened yesterday. A deranged man attacked a public figure, for a reason that only he might know. In the process, he also attacked and killed others who may, or may not have been intended targets. Apparently the initial target was a Democrat, and he used a gun.
As was expected, there is posturing in the editorial theater about where the responsibility lays for yesterdays horrific act. As was also expected, the initial barrage was aimed at conservative groups or individuals for 'fanning the flames' with talk radio, tea parties etc. And there is no surprise that Sarah Palin, whom the left fears with the darkest and seemingly largest parts of their souls, would become a target yet again.
While there are countless blogs, and news articles that link Palin's electoral target map to this one man's insanity, I will present the work of merely ONE writer, as it encompasses the complete propaganda package in it's entirety.
