Woo-hoo!!! Another snow day. In all honest, OPM really had no choice: the greater Washington area is still very much shut down to the massive weekend snowstorm. And another one is set to hit us tomorrow afternoon, so I predict we'll be shut down on Wednesday also.

2 days in a row and another blast coming on Wednesday, maybe 12 + feet more.

And Obama wants to have the GOP over for health care tea and cookies to save his sinking butt.

YEA SURE !

I remember when Gingrich and the boys threatened to shut down the government back in the 90s. It took the maggots in the “media” about 30 seconds to find some liberal piggie whose “grandmother in Italy was dying”. Supposedly, the whole world was going to come to an end if he didn’t get his passport stamped. It’s a good thing grandma croaked before this storm hit.

Not rude, I hope she will give me at least one,
we were friends and both started our collections
at the same time. we had lots of fun working
on them and trying to come up with new items.
Also need to know what to do
for my collection should any thing happen to me.
We were having lunch last week and he had a stroke
at the table, we got him to hospital and thought
he would be ok, but he had several more and was gone.

Nice collection, not many Nagants which is what
I collect, but a nice M-42 swede Sniper with scope
and case, a Zouave, an FR-8, and all manner of mausers.
Will miss him calling me and saying , “Guess what
Iiiiii’ve got!!”.

Can you imagine the embarassment, the pain, the destruction of self esteem?

Can you imagine the suffering?

Can you imagine being a federal employee and being told you are not essential and not to report today?

GUARANTEE:
These 2 days shutdown will be cited by Hussein and the media as "coming in under budget" for the federal government. At some point, it'll be "snuck in" to a report or in one of his god-awful speeches...

Will harm or good or neither come to us from a two day hiatus of politics and paper pushing?

I hope not. The three feet of snow we got this weekend shut everything down and I can not even imagine what twelve feet more will do.

Mosins for me too. With Mausers in reserve. I find that the price of one mauser will equal 2 or more mosins. I’d post a pic but photobucket seems to be acting up for me tonite.

Do you think G-d might let it keep snowing there until about June if we pray hard enough? ;)

Someone should promote an Algore lookalike global warming snowman/snowjob contest. There should be enough snow for a ten foot image of the pontificating, condescending junk scientist hypocrite on every front lawn and town square for hundreds of miles.

The Pew Charitable Trusts should offer a huge cash reward for the best snow statue. Perhaps the treasury department could ask Kinko’s to run off a few hundred thousand extra bankruptcy anticipation notes for the lucky winner. Maybe the labor department would count this as part of the “employed”.

Collect mostly Finns, 91s, 27s, etc.
Used to get them fairly cheap but not
so much now.

MY favorite is a 1927 Tikka 91 with a heavy barrel,
love to shoot it and quite accurate too.

Have you shot the 44 at night yet?
I have one that the barrel had to be shortened by two
inches because of bore wear.
It throws out a fireball about three feet in diameter!

Amazing.

The seat of power of the world’s preeminent superpower made incapacitated by a simple snowstorm.

While brave men and women fight and die in inhospitable lands, the Federal government takes a “snow day”.

Pathetic.

(Although, not having them “working” does not mean they’re not still metastasizing)
