  • Savage Destroys Hannity [Wallbanger is sad.]

    The Rich Lieberman Report ^ | 3/26/2014 | Rich Lieberman
    Love him, hate him, revile at his rants, he's the highest-paid radio host in the Bay Area; Michael Savage, syndicated talkie that has destroyed his ghost rival, Sean Hannity not only here, (KSFO), but NY, (King of the apple), Chicago, Detroit, Dallas. It's not even close in the important radio demos that count although some advertisers are still weary of Savage's discourse. They might have to reassess that position. Savage makes north of a million dollars but between his books and diversified business interests fortune, he's reportedly worth close to $100 million. Who needs radio?

  • Buy Before Banned: guns, ammo, lightbulbs, wood stoves, cars

    Over the past 6 years, our oppressive government has essentially forced me to buy numerous items prior to them being banned. 1) Increased CAFE standards lead to one of my vehicles being discontinued 2) Closing of lead smelting company 3) EPA about to put the hammer down on wood stoves by introducing particulate filters and other ridiculous controls. 4) Lightbulbs....well, you know the story So, I've invested in gas cans, lightbulbs, ammo, a new wood stove (1990 regs), guns, etc. What items have you purchased simply because you fear they will be phased out of existence?
  • Obama should have flown with Beretta Executives to Nashville[Vanity]

    01/30/2014 10:23:06 AM PST · by AdamBomb · 13 replies
    Yesterday, Beretta and Governor Haslam of Tennessee announced that a new $45 million state of the art manufacturing plant will be built just north of Nashville - Beretta is apparently not happy with Maryland's new gun restrictions. The timing of this announcement is especially delicious as Obama is visiting Nashville today to talk about jobs... Perhaps Obama could have let the Beretta executives fly with him and have a joint announcement. The other delicious connection is that Zero's boys were clearly and deliberately going after Jimmy Haslam regarding the Pilot gas station rebates. Maybe Governor Haslam is getting some revenge.

I think he is wildly entertaining. Hell, he makes my teenagers laugh out loud all of the time. I don’t particularly like Rush or the Wall Banger. So this is not a bash Savage thread. Please do that somewhere else. So here goes....Recently we’ve noticed a bit of a difference in Savage. First, he gets on the Trayvon bandwagon. Note that he doesn’t say Trayvon...

Brentwood Police said 41-year-old Randolph Maidens walked out of the woods shortly after daylight, and was walking toward his home when he was taken into custody without incident. Police believe he had been laying low in the area, but were unsure where he had been. Maidens was to be questioned later Monday morning, and charges could be...

    I went to a gun shop this evening in the "South". This is a well-known gun shop but it's in the middle of freakin nowhere. Drove an hour to get there. I went there tonight because, yesterday morning, I bought a "piece" over the phone so they had it locked up in the back for me. So I had to pick it up tonight. But the real story was I couldn't believe how many people were in there. There were at least 150 people in there. All the parking spaces in the lot were full. Black guns were flying off...
  • Is Rasmussen Playing us like a fiddle? The Psychology of a Close Race

    11/02/2012 7:09:20 AM PDT · by AdamBomb · 22 replies
    First, let me say that I do believe the race is close….but I don’t see this thing as a tie. Like it or not, Rasmussen has Republican leanings. He also knows that there is more enthusiasm on our side. So here is the question: Is Rasmussen or has he intentionally kept this race close (even though he might know otherwise) to ensure that our side is not complacent? How else could he use the +3 Dem turnout unless he is certain of that amount of fraud? What is the psychology of a close race? Is it different for Democrats that...

In fact, the poll workers were not able to take a break all day because people just kept coming in. Again, this is a very Republican district with the outcomes already known.

According to her count, at least 2,700 of them have died or needed to be euthanized since 1999 after eating lead from ammunition left in the wild by hunters. Jordan, a 62-year-old wildlife biologist from Everett, Wash., wonders why the federal government won't help more of the birds live by banning lead in ammunition.
