    NASA on Wednesday said that it is working on a personal flying suit. Called “Puffin,” the conceptual and highly experimental project is part one-man stealth plane, part personal jet pack. Unveiled at a San Francisco meeting of the American Helicopter Society on Jan. 20 by Mark D. Moore, an aerospace engineer at NASA’s Langley Research Center, the Puffin promises — on paper at least — a self-contained design with proper “cockpit” and helicopter-style blades that allow for high-altitude flying up to 30,000 ft.

    The Obama Team and the Democrat National Committee have Texas in their sights. They chose to have their annual meeting in Texas’ capital city on September 10th, 11th, and 12th because they think they can turn Texas BLUE in the next election. They want to bring their failed Washington policies to a bedrock Republican state that is still thriving despite Democrat attempts to run our great country into the ground.

    That Abraham Lincoln is today a hero to U. S. Communists is a matter of plain geometry. In revolutionary jargon, Communist policy is known as the Party Line, and lately the Party Line has described a neat curve toward democracy. In recent Communist thought Lincoln, Jefferson, and Tom Paine have assumed a stature comparable to that of Joseph Stalin and Vladimir Ilyich Lenin. However much this may surprise the bourgeoisie, Communists planned it that way. This week they also planned their convention and its publicized dramatics to impress upon all U. S. minds a man, a policy, a party, a...

    Lewis Winant'a book Firearms Curiosa, page 182 and figure 208. His description is fine, and this is the identical pistol. The caliber is .55 percussion, 8" octagonal barrel with dovetail front sight. The function is fine, the metal shows rust marks from poor storage, saw handle, ring trigger, plain walnut grips with flared grips in fine condition. Apparently this is an unique pistol. $7,250.

    On Oct. 5, a retirement party was held at the New Waverly Public Library. More than 60 people attended to celebrate the life and work of the honoree. After eight years, most of his life, in service, he was finally getting to relax and eat human food. That’s right; the retirement party was for a dog. But anyone in attendance would say that Drummer, the guest of honor, is far more than just a dog. Trained as a service dog by Pennsylvania-based non-profit organization Canine Partners for Life (CPL), Drummer was brought to Texas in 2000 to aid in the...

    Fred Phelps, the pastor and head lunatic of Westboro Baptist Church (WBC) of Topeka, Kansas (call 785-273-0325 or visit godhatesfags.com) has written an open letter to the family of Heath Ledger. In the short letter is a demand that the Ledger family divulge the time, date, and place of the late actor’s burial in Perth, Australia, so WBC can go - in respectful proximity - and conduct a “religious service.” Fred Phelps has already caused untold suffering and pain to the families of dead American soldiers by protesting their funerals with signs proclaiming that “God Hates America” because “Gad Hates...

    Ronald Reagan was dismissed by the intelligentsia as just an actor who read speeches written by others until history professor Kiron Skinner discovered a box of Reagan's original radio scripts written in his own hand on ruled yellow paper from 1975 to 1979. Since he had no staff to research and write for him in those years, the scripts prove that Reagan was a one-man think-tank, well versed in political philosophy and history, fully capable of writing his own speeches. Professor Skinner's discovery, and the subsequent publication of many of Reagan's more than a thousand hand-written radio commentaries, changed the...

    Let's face it. Some people, especially liberals, just don't like our United States Constitution. Every few years, they come up with wild or devious plans to make major changes. The would-be rewriters of the Constitution do not merely propose amendments to remedy a problem, as allowed for in Article V. They seek structural change after hurling put-downs such as archaic, out-of-date, and dating from the horse-and-buggy era. The latest to imagine that he can write a 21st century improvement on our great Constitution is University of Virginia professor Larry J. Sabato, whom the Washington Post once dubbed "the Mark McGwire...
