"I'm shocked! Shocked! To find gunwalking going on here!"

The list, ping
Let me know if you would like to be on or off the ping list
These Sipsey Street guys are the new DRUDGE —he’s an indefatiguable digger unearthing gem after gem.
I have been freeping over 10 years, and for me Sipsey Street irregulars is an INDEPSENSIBLE addition to Drudge and FreeRepulic.
They’re simply fantastic —he’s doing the work of 1,000 presstitutes, apparently for free, or nearly free.
TELL EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Right now there are three sources for most of the information we are getting. Sipsey Street Irregulars, David Cordrea of the Gunrights Examiner, and Sharyl Attkisson’s stories on CBS.
They have given the House committee and Issa meat and potatoes to feed on. Now, we want the desert.
You take the sand and cactii —I’ll take the Peach Cobbler a-la-mode. ^_^
And from the looks of it, there’s going to be TONS of nice Peach Cobbler, mmmm, mmmm, mmmm....!
This is so great —the level of lawlessness I’m finally reading is....it’s just astonishing.
BTTT and thanks for the ping.
