  Forging a New Hobby
Some folks I know have gotten "into" making things from hot iron so...

This first is from Old Time Fiddler and he's apparently something of an antiquarian...


Then there's this trip back in time (sort of)... Thisi interested me mostly because of the simple nature of the forge (but it does require a helper)...


Steven Sagal shows how to start the forge fire...


And then I found this interesting short from Expert Village showing a "universal" anvil...


Interesting stuff.

The Blog-O-Cuss Meter - Do you cuss a lot in your blog or website?
Created by OnePlusYou

I would have thought that this blog has more cussing than my shooting blog. I wonder if shooting terms are negatively viewed by the software used to evaluate the site for the cuss-o-meter...

  The Dem/S and Race
We were talking at work today and the question was raised, "how does Barack Hussein Obama consider himself black rather than white?" The questioning individual further explained, "I mean, he's 50/50, white and black, why'd he pick black or African-American? He wasn't raised 'black'..." This was followed by some serious headshaking and mumbling about current political weirdness.

Well, the question is obvious, Barack Hussein Obama is a racist. He does believe in that black liberation theology, he does think his 'white' grandma is a racist, and he is using his apparent blackness (based solely on the color of his skin) to create an advantage. In fact, he's no more a Black American than I am.

What IS Barack Hussein Obama? Why, he's a politician and that's all. He's like the very worst of politicians, particularly the elitist, socialist politicians. He is simply out for himself and doesn't give a rat's butt about any of the rest of us, INCLUDING Black Americans.

  Typical White Person
Is there such? Am I such? I have to wonder. I don't care about race, but I care when people care about my race. Ditto for nationality, religion, hobbies, etc. Senator Barack Hussein Obama, believer in black liberation theology (apparently) has just lumped me together with his grandmother as distrustful and/or fearful of black men. Fool is what he is but he is right about one thing. I owe nothing to black people, I have no debt to them because of some perceived injustice by my ancestors. My ancestors wrote, taught at Wake Forest, preached in their churches, and enlisted in Mr. Lincoln's army to express and support their opposition to slavery. Going as far back as 1830, we have letters decrying slavery and expressing their dismay in viewing the "institution" first hand as they pursued teaching positions in southern states. Indeed these letters aver to an earlier generation's opposition to slavery. Certainly, no family member post-civil war supported the institution.

So, Senator Barack Hussein Obama, I am of the opinion that you are more a racist than I am or can be because you have assumed that I am, must be as a typical white person, a racist. Because you don't trust me, I can not trust you. Because you attended the church of a leader in black liberation theology for 20 years you must be a believer (or a liar as you must have lied to either us or to your pastor and church). Because your wife has expressed these views, I think she is a believer in this black liberation theology. Because black liberation theology is hate based racism, I don't trust Senator Barack Hussein Obama to be an objective POTUS.

Ummmm, perhaps I am a typical white person, that is if NOW the typical white person will not vote for you. I know I won't.

  Barack H______ Obama and his Pastor, Part II
Today I learned that Barack H______ Obama (here refered to as BHO) has a pastor who has for 20+ years espoused hatred of white people and believes that God (the singular creator of all things) is black and for black people. That BHO hasn't actually disavowed him any more than he has disavowed his racist, white, grandmother (yeah, grandma you couldn't choose, Rev. Wright you did choose). Further he gets thrice weekly phone calls from the Rev. Al Sharpton (who also believes that all white folks are to blame for the problems black folks have). Moreover, I learned that BHO gets some fantastic advice from some guy name Meeks, another black minister who preaches hate. Then to top it all off I hear this other black minister who's for Mrs. Clinton who talks about BHO's mother as trash.

So, I suppose that BHO was right yesterday when he said we've all heard such talk in our churches. Well, apparently we have if we're black. Me? Nope, never. All I ever heard about in church was about God and Jesus and finding understanding God and Jesus and finding salvation in the church. There was no taking the lord's name in vain, no use of the "N" word, no referring to the congregation as idiots or fools. Of course the churches I attended never blamed the black man for anything. They didn't call for the destruction of black people.

The thing is that most of the churches I attended were in the south. The south of racists whites. Now it seems the whole country is the home of racist blacks. I hate to think that some of my friends, who also happen to be black, might go to such churches and hate me because I'm not black.

One thing is certain. I'm not voting for a person who hates me. I'm not voting for a person who's advisers hate me. I'm not voting for a person who's wife hates me. I'm not voting for a person who rejects one whole half of their gene pool based on the color of their skin. I will not be like them and I will not vote for them and I will not put them in a position to exercise their hate on my children, my grandchildren or my great-grandchildren.

Now here's some video proof of this despicable and threatening behavior...

  Barack H______ Obama and his Pastor
The story continues as BHO is now reported to have been in attendance when the Reverand Wright made one of his over-the-top sermons. He is reported to have been nodding in agreement. Ok, so in the 17-22 years of attendance at the church (I've heard several numbers on this) how many times did BHO go to church and stay for the sermon? It must have been often enough that he got married by the Pastor Wright and had his children baptized by Pastor Wright and his wife seems to espouse the views of Pastor Wright (as in her, "I've never been proud of my country until now," comment). I think he's not being forthcoming on this (i.e. he's lying).

We also hear now that Oprah Winfrey attended the church but apparently left because of the hate speech at service. Yet, she, knowing the BHO attended and apparently agrees, supports BHO. Is it solely because he's black? Is it because she secretly agrees with Reverend Wright? Did she leave not because she disagrees but because if her attendance was known her bottom line would suffer?

BHO says he wants change. I don't doubt that. BHO says he wants to tax the hell out of us. I don't doubt that. BHO says he wants to surrender (although he doesn't use that term) as soon as he gets in office. I believe that. BHO says that he wants to be a uniter. I believe that. BHO says his campaign is not about race. I do NOT believe that. It is about race for his wife, for the Clintons, for thousands of black voters and for Reverend Wright.

  Is Al Gore or is Barack Obama Satan on Earth
Got your attention? Good. Put me on your hate list, your short list, whatever. I'm not changing my mind, I'm not going to submit to liars.

The case for Al Gore is based on his grand deception which he refers to as Global Warming. OK, now it is Global Climate Change. Is it happening? Yeah, sure, and it has been for the entire existence of the planet. Every day of every year since the ball got glued together by gravitational forces. It has made life here possible. BUT, and this is the thing, it is NOT dependent on we pitiful humans to affect it. The sun, the atmosphere, and the volcanic spittle of the earth itself, but mostly the sun control our temperatures. That is the great deception that Al Gore has promulgated and in doing so he appeals to the worst of human weaknesses, greed and pride. Greed on the part of farmers who are profiting from selling corn at high prices (too high to be used as food by the poorest of people in some countries) because of government mandates for ethanol fuel that is less efficient and more costly than gasoline (further harming the poor). Greed on the part of purveyors of the Carbon Credit, a scam of monumental proportions. Pride for those who falsely think they are, can, will affect the climate of the planet. Pride for those who think that they alone know all things and can tell the rest of us what to do, how to do. Pride for Al Gore as well. Al Gore who lives in a 20,000 sq. ft. house that he finally made "green" after it was disclosed that the "evil" President George Bush's house in Crawford, TX was truly a "green" home. Al Gore who jets all across the world promoting limitations on our choices to travel and live. Al Gore who profits from the sale of carbon credits. And so, Al Gore, a great deceiver who has harmed all mankind with his deception is a candidate for Satan on Earth.

So, what is the case for Barack Hussein Obama as Satan on Earth? (NOTE: it is just FUN to use BHO's middle name as it ticks some of you off big time. In truth it means nothing to him or to me. We know that he isn't Muslim.) Well, he too is a great deceiver. For example, he says he is a Christian who has attended this particular church for over 20 years and given over $20K to the church and yet never heard of nor knew of the pastor's race hatred "theology". BHO has said that he checks with his pastor before making major decisions, is inspired by his sermons, has been married by, had his children baptized by and attended services by this man and yet he says
Let me say at the outset that I vehemently disagree and strongly condemn the statements that have been the subject of this controversy. I categorically denounce any statement that disparages our great country or serves to divide us from our allies. I also believe that words that degrade individuals have no place in our public dialogue, whether it's on the campaign stump or in the pulpit. In sum, I reject outright the statements by Rev. Wright that are at issue.
But I must ask, have we found all the things that the Reverend has said on the subject? And what man puts up with vehemently disagreeing with his pastor for 20+ years? Further, BHO has given speech after speech in which he purports to be for change (like that espoused by his pastor?) but gave no specifics. When he did give specifics it was to tax each and every one of us to the point that half of all we had or earned would be seized by the government. Who among us would have hope then? And so Barack Hussein Obama, a deceiver who would have us think that he would unite us when he is in fact a racist who would take all we produce is candidate for Satan on Earth.

Got some comments? More candidates? Let's hear it...

  Culture of Corruption - Elliott Spitzer
The Democrat governor of New York, Elliott Spitzer, former prosecutor and all-around crusader against sin in the state was apparently caught by the Feds and recorded conducting an illegal act or acts with a prostitution ring. Details will probably leak out as slowly as possible in the Dem/S attempt to keep a lid on it. Uh, huh, that'll work. Those that care will keep up with nefarious acts (including making his wife stand by his side during a very public mea culpa) while the vast majority will at the most make excuses for the governor's hypocritical inability to keep "it" in his pants or completely ignore the whole thing.

He's damn happy in this photo. I wonder if it was taken in conjunction with his prosecution of two prostitution rings OR if he's thinking how proud his three teenage daughters will be of their daddy.

UPDATE -

This putz still hasn't resigned as of 3-12-08. Let's see, he's broken a bunch of laws and thinks he can stay in office. In my mind, this demonstrates why the state of my birth and the Dem/s are so corrupt that I don't want anything to do with them.

UPDATE -

He finally resigned effective Monday the 17th. His prepared statement was accompanied by his wife waiting patiently for him to pull his head out of his... Anyway, it was full of platitudes and had absolutely zero actual apologetic content. I'm convinced this egotistical SOC cares only that he got caught.

Meanwhile some fools have actually tried to say that this was a personal matter despite his apparent use of government funds to pay for both travel to and rooms in which to entertain his privates' matter.

  Forgiveness and Grief
We see a lot of polarization in today's political climate. Hillary Rodham Clinton is bound and determined to beat Barrack Hussein Obama for the Democrat Party's presidential nomination and both are equally determined to beat the "evil" Republican Party's nominee. Supporters on all sides are so over heated on the subject that one supporter actually stabbed another. And so it goes...

In the midst of this we seem to have more and more troubled, illogical young people attempting to make something, anything, of their lives through the sensational killing of others and to likewise avoid facing the consequences (in this world) of that choice by committing suicide at the same time. This happened in Colorado Springs recently but fortunately there was somebody likewise armed to resist this evil act and stop it before other innocents died. Today, Pastor Jim put up a post about the aftermath of this act.

The thing that struck me is that, in this time of apparent polarization, these families of and victims of this one young man who committed this act came together in an act of mutual condolence. It is a wonderful thing and I thank Pastor Jim for sharing this with us.

For us, the American ideal is personified in the concept of self-reliance, work ethic, honesty/forthrightness, decency, personal property rights, family, religion, an ability to defend oneself from criminals and crooked politicians, and personal responsibility.





Whoop-ti-do, the forum for the rest of us...
