    Well, I think it's just great that today the NYT and CNN and the WashCompost and all these other liberal commentators are so solicitous to conservatives! Look how they are unanimously warning us that it would be disastrous to run Trump. But never fear they assure us that we will win if we run Kasich. Or Cruz! But not Trump of course. Oh no. We would lose! They want us to win! Lol!
  • House of Cards

    03/12/2016 9:29:04 AM PST · by Seruzawa · 25 replies
    I'm sick of talking about politics today. I was wondering if anyone has been watching House of Cards and noticed that it looks like the show is jumping the shark. The original Brit version was only 12 one hour episodes and was nice and succinct. The new one is 4 seasons of 13 episodes now. I was hoping they would end it this season but apparently the show has fallen into the "milk it for all it's worth" mode. From the blurb on the last episode it's obvious that they are going to do yet another season. Well, this year...

    After years of being a sucker and buying magazines off of the tables at gun shows, I'm done. I'm looking at my mags and I have about a dozen gun show mags and only maybe two or three are reliable and quiet. Most jam or don't activate the slide stop when empty or just plain rattle when loaded. I've spent an average of $15 each. For the same $ I could have bought 6 factory mags and have 6 good mags instead of 2 or 3. As an experiment I loaded a factory 7rd Ruger .45 mag with 7 rds...

    I've been scanning old slides and thought some freepers might find a few interesting. #1 WWII era wooden gunboat we used. Twin 6-71 diesel engines.(Thank God. At least the Navy had the sense to stay away from gasoline power.) 18 Knot max speed. Unless it had a forward-throw mortar and then maybe it had a 14knot top speed. The mortar wasn't worth the trouble. One twin .50 mount armament, plus an M-79 (my favorite) and some M-16s and a shotgun. Nothing but the best for our boys! The .50s aren't installed because this particular shot was taken after a refit....

    I Don't often post vanities. However it's been almost a couple of years since BushII left the White House and I think it's time for me to give the devil his due. I never cared much for BushII. Like his Dad he was a big social spender. One of his first acts was to double the funding for the Dept of Education, for example. I thought that going into the Middle East with ground troops to be a boneheaded move, mainly from a historical perspective in that every foreign occupier in that area got savaged endlessly. On the plus he...

    Several years ago, Rockwell International decided to get into the heavy duty transmission business. They were getting ready to tape a first introduction video, and as a warm up, the professional narrator began what has become a legend within the trucking industry. This man should have won an academy award for his stellar performance. Now remember this is strictly off the cuff, nothing is written down, this became the biggest talk in the industry, vs the new product which they were introducing.

    La Verkin amends U.N. law Watered-down measure not much better, critics say By Nancy Perkins Deseret News correspondent LA VERKIN, Washington County — "What's next? That's the scary part," LaVerkin resident Ann Blackburn said after the City Council amended its anti-U.N. ordinance Wednesday. "I am tired of people putting their opinion out as if all of us in this community feel that way," Blackburn said. Once again in a 3-2 vote, council members approved an anti-U.N. ordinance, this one a neutered version of its predecessor. The amended ordinance is stripped of much of the language Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff ...

    Court Slams Liquor-Ad Ban Appellate judges say Utah's distinguishing between types of alcohol is 'irrational' Wednesday, July 25, 2001 BY JACOB SANTINI THE SALT LAKE TRIBUNE A portion of Utah's staunch anti-alcohol law, reaching back to 1933 and the Prohibition, was nullified Tuesday when the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled wine and liquor advertisements are protected speech. An order issued by a three-judge panel in Denver cancels Utah's longtime law prohibiting advertisements for liquor in newspapers, on billboards and outside restaurants and clubs. For the moment, the ruling also relieves the ban on the mere mention of the existence ...

    EPA Insiders Endorse Cabinet-Level Status, But some worry politics, not science, would rule Wednesday, July 25, 2001 BY JOHN HEILPRIN THE ASSOCIATED PRESS WASHINGTON -- Lawmakers' demands for more scientific accountability at the Environmental Protection Agency are the major stumbling block to making the agency a full Cabinet-level department, a Senate panel was told Tuesday. EPA Administrator Christie Whitman and two predecessors, Carol Browner and William Reilly, urged the Senate Governmental Affairs Committee not to let a bill elevating the agency's status get bogged down with well-intentioned efforts to also improve its science. "It is starting down a road of ...

    Public Employee Growth Swells, Census: Numbers outpace Utah's gain in population Wednesday, July 25, 2001 BY PAUL FOY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS The number of government employees and teachers in Utah has grown faster than the state's population in the past decade, according to census figures released Tuesday. Utah has 59,863 full- and part-time employees of state government, a category that includes the staffs of public schools and colleges and universities as well as state liquor stores, according to a census snapshot taken in April 2000. That works out to an equivalent of 49,331 full-time state government jobs, up 32.7 percent ...

    Contingency visits S.L. to promote cause of free trade By Dave Anderton Deseret News business writer As protests against globalization raged in Genoa, Italy over the weekend, a small contingency of Albanians arrived in Salt Lake hoping to further the cause of free trade. Albania, located along the Adriatic coast, is one of Europe's smallest and poorest countries. On average, people earn less than $600 a year. However, you won't hear these Albanians speaking against global markets. In fact, Albania would like to become a trading partner with Utah. Franz Kolb, deputy director of the state's International Business Development Office, ...

A group of pro-defense Democrats in the House of Representatives did not wait long to challenge President Bush on the contentious issue of an immediate defense budget hike. Seven hours, to be precise. In his speech to military personnel and their families in Norfolk, Va., on Tuesday morning, Bush said that he intends to wait for an internal review of ...

    Military Has High Hopes For Bush By Mike Allen, Washington Post Staff Writer CHARLESTON, W.Va., Feb. 14 -- For the third straight day, President Bush was showered with gleeful grunts of "Hoo-ah!" today as he completed his maiden tour as commander in chief with a pledge to deploy American troops more sparingly than the previous administration. From a damp parade ground in Georgia to a high-tech command center in Norfolk to the flag-festooned hangar here, troops said they appreciate Bush's promises to bolster their pay, fighting equipment and living conditions.

    Bush Tours A Military Mired In A Cold War Mind-Set As President Bush showers military personnel with pay raises and pep talks, his harsher message is left unsaid: no more new funds until the administration addresses the fact that the military spends too much time and money preparing for yesterday's wars. That overdue pronouncement was delivered last week so Bush could concentrate on the more popular aspect of his program during this week's tour of military bases. But it is the component that will matter most for the nation's defense. The services spend too little of the $310 billion defense ...
