The significant other of a VERY dear friend was involved ..............................

in producing this website/video Our American Freedom - go take a look/listen ......................... it about says it all ............................




.

My apologies, to those folks I asked to contact me @ my

gmail address, who were then spammed - it was without my knowledge or consent - below is my letter to the company concerned:

I recently contacted friends through their blogs, asking that they contact me at MY gmail address - imagine my humiliation, when one of them was SPAMMED by YOUR hijacking of MY gmail address?

I signed up to see some of your offerings - I NEVER PAID YOU A CENT, NOR GAVE YOU PERMISSION TO USE my account, so wouldn't THAT have indicated that I wasn't going to be one of your peons?

You will remove my gmail address from your database IMMEDIATELY! I will NOT have my friends hassled by you or your ilk.

Most sincerely,
M------------





Again, my apologies.





UPDATE: APPARENTLY, the "vacation responder" function of gmail was hijacked by that 'company' - since I've never USED the responder on gmail, I don't know how they gained access .................... but over SEVEN HUNDRED spam eMails were sent out from my gmail account - it's now disabled, and WILL be checked before I send any further eMails or ask ANYONE to eMail me there.

Patrice Lewis has a GREAT column up .........................................

The arrogance is breathtaking - I've been saying for months that Obama's biggest problem is his arrogance - his snooty, 'stench in his nostrils' poses, his condescending, patronizing comments .......................... and don't get me started on his pompous, ignorant a$$ of a "press secretary", much less any of the other WH 'staffers' ............................

HERE'S the thing - if 'they' were all that certain of the "rightness" of all the crap they're trying to cram down our collective throats, there wouldn't be the accusations of Nazism by Pelooser et al, or the mumblings of Dingy Harry of Nevada, or the "teabagger" comments of Janeane Garofalo - but now that the shoe is on the other foot, it appears to be pinching a bit - a Dem you DON'T hear referred to too much anymore, had a saying, "If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen" ..........................

Not only "No", but "HELL, NO!"

There's a "bill"
currently in committee in the House of Representatives; while my heart aches for Blair Holt's family, penalizing the law-abiding is NOT the answer.


Official Summary
1/6/2009--Introduced.
Blair Holt's Firearm Licensing and Record of Sale Act of 2009 - Amends the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act to prohibit a person from possessing a firearm unless that person has been issued a firearm license under this Act or a state system certified under this Act and such license has not been invalidated or revoked. Prescribes license application, issuance, and renewal requirements.
Prohibits transferring or receiving a qualifying firearm unless the recipient presents a valid firearms license, the license is verified, and the dealer records a tracking authorization number. Prescribes firearms transfer reporting and record keeping requirements. Directs the Attorney General to establish and maintain a federal record of sale system.
Prohibits:
(1) transferring a firearm to any person other than a licensee, unless the transfer is processed through a licensed dealer in accordance with national instant criminal background check system requirements, with exceptions;
(2) a licensed manufacturer or dealer from failing to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements of this Act;
(3) failing to report the loss or theft of the firearm to the Attorney General within 72 hours;
(4) failing to report to the Attorney General an address change within 60 days; or
(5) keeping a loaded firearm, or an unloaded firearm and ammunition for the firearm, knowingly or recklessly disregarding the risk that a child is capable of gaining access, if a child uses the firearm and causes death or serious bodily injury.
Prescribes criminal penalties for violations of firearms provisions covered by this Act.
Directs the Attorney General to:
(1) establish and maintain a firearm injury information clearinghouse;
(2) conduct continuing studies and investigations of firearm-related deaths and injuries; and
(3) collect and maintain current production and sales figures of each licensed manufacturer.

I've added ....................................

House of Harkonnen to the "Friends" link area - he's former Navy {you remember WHY the Marine Corps still needs the Navy, doncha? 'Cause "we" haven't learned to walk on water yet! ;-) ;-) } Take a gander - he's well worth it! ;-)

Went to the 'new' doctor again today - got a cortisone shot in my right foot {been having excruciating pain for ~ 8 months {tendinitis & bone spurs} - 'old' doctor was great for sending me to "specialists" @ $30.00/pop {visits with our primary care physicians are $15.00} - THAT can get to be expensive ................................ Dr. C. also removed a cyst behind my ear that just WASN'T going away, under local anesthetic - it's SO NICE to go to ONE doctor's office & get EVERYTHING taken care of ......................... ;-) New doc also has no problems with my using Valium as needed for anxiety, & NOT immediately figuring I'm "depressed" - I'm SO SICK of doctors/PAs insisting that I have depression - I KNOW when I'm depressed - I look for bridges to jump off of - haven't been like THAT in about 11 years ...............................

As I noted over on Crusader Rabbit ..........................

our Congressional representative held a health care Town Hall two towns south of here; HE'S the one who's staff developed this, to explain ObamaCare .................... YOU know, the one SanFranNan wouldn't permit being sent from the House of Representatives. I attended, primarily to thank Representative Brady for his staff's efforts - he received the loudest applause when he was talking about "those who don't deserve ONE DOLLAR of healthcare, because they're here illegally!"

Got to talking with his campaign manager; I'll be getting in touch to assist in his next run for office. I was VERY impressed by the man - Kevin Brady remembers WHO he represents; I suggested he remind others in Washington that THEY work for US.
