    From what I’ve read the Imported Red Fire Ant species got to my hometown about the same time I did. And fire ants are not going to be gone from Baton Rouge or Bovina when I am. Ants are just a fact of life and there is no simple surefire ant solution. However, there is such a thing as the Museum of Novel Fire Ant Control Methods and Products. I just can’t find out if it is a true physical facility or merely cyber located. It is not definite as to what entity is its founder and curator, but I’m...

    Talk about disenfranchisement. In California, seems it's not enough that foreign nationals who've just spilled over the U.S. border from the south can get free education, free health care, free housing, and all that — now it looks as though locals may just find themselves lorded over by foreign nationals with zero loyalty to the United States making policy, now that Gov. Gavin Newsom has signed SB225, a bill to allow illegals to "serve" (and be paid) on state boards that make policy in California. If your interests conflict with theirs, too bad about yours: According to the San Francisco...

    The Telegraph ^ | 03-26-2016 | Robert Tait,
    The three friends no doubt thought shooting at an old lawnmower would be a fun way of exercising America’s gun ownership rights. But packing it with Tannerite explosive beforehand turned out to be a serious mistake when the target exploded in a dangerous hail of flying metal that hit one of the men, causing horrific injuries that cost him his leg. This footage shows the moment when 23-year-old David Presley is struck by debris from the machine after firing at it with a high-powered rifle at close range. Mr Presley and his two accomplices in Walton County in the southern...

    John Morillo, a 47-year-old Canadian man, acknowledged that it was "really stupid" of him to drink eight beers and swim across the Detroit River on Monday night. However, he is glad that he actually made it. “If I’m going to be in the paper, I’d at least like them to say I actually made it, even though I got in trouble and everything,” he told The Windsor Star Tuesday. “I gotta pay fines and stuff. But I don’t want it to sound like I didn’t make it, because then my buddies are going to say ‘ha, ha, you didn’t make...

    CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Two seasonal Yellowstone National Park concession workers have been fired after a live webcam caught them urinating into the Old Faithful geyser.

    I mentioned earlier this morning that the SF Chronicle managed to find the most non-redneck astroturf rednecks I could imagine. Well, Peter from Firearms & Freedom, did some digging and inspired me to do some more digging as well. Over IM, here’s a few more facts about the supposed Rednecks for Obama that we’ve found: They registered their domain through a proxy. They list a mailing address for merchandise at an address in Pennsylvania while claiming to be in Missouri. The mailing address is a box of some kind. Based on the address style, I would have assumed it was...
