ALERT! Obama Says U.S. 'Out of Money!'

Read all about this stunning news....



Was this a slip of the tongue or an acknowledgement that the U.S. has fallen off the precipice?

And, does this mean we are now bankrupt?

Focusing on guns, politics, and news of interest, here is today's Second Amendment News Roundup:

From Codrea's Gun Rights Examiner: 'More Gun Control Won't Stop Drug War Corruption and Violence.'

Say Uncle adds important commentary to the story reported yesterday that the Feds want to regulate bloggers.

From Hofmann's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner: 'New York City Synagogue Bomb Plot--Interesting Choice of Weapons.'

Tam blogs on a creepy politician in the news who benefits from being 'graded on the curve.'

Sebastian comments on the smoking bans sweeping the nation. This is more than just a civil rights issue for smokers. It is a private property issue for business owners who would normally have the freedom to decide for themselves whether or not they want smoking in their place of business. Now the nanny-state decides.

Recession Worsens

The top headlines on the Drudge Report this morning say it all.

And this is my topic today at Columbia Conservative Examiner.

It's time to brace ourselves. This is going to be a terribly bumpy ride.

A Bad Case of HTBO

I am hereby coining a new disorder--'HTBO,' which stands for 'high-tech burn-out.'

I have a bad case of it today along with it's severe symptom of sore eyes.

DIGG has been pulling some shenanigans that has all of us conservative, libertarian, and gun writers up in arms. We have thus had to seek out other means of promoting our material and staying in touch with one another.

Thus, I am back to using Twitter (UGH!) and several other 'social networking' avenues.

I have been working on this mess all day long. I really don't have time to fool with this technological B.S., but I am forced to do so since I don't have a secretary.

Needless to say, I need your help in promoting the Columbia Conservative Examiner articles now more than ever. The pay is based upon how many people read it.

So, that's that about that. I needed to tell you what is going on so you will know.

Update on the eyes: they are 'holding their own' with anti-inflammatory meds but still get worn easily...not a good thing for a writer. I am becoming all too familiar with the meaning of the term 'starving artist.' LOL. And a blind one at that!

OK, I don't want to get too engrossed in self-pity here or to whine. I'm just laying it out there like it is. I am going to sign off for a while. My eyes, and my body, need the rest.

Thanks to all of you who faithfully read these pages and who often express your support in numerous ways. You are the 'salt of the earth.'

David Codrea posts 'a little bit of bathroom gun humor' over at Gun Rights Examiner.

Walls of the City opines on the practice of politicians of attaching amendments to bills that have nothing to do with the original bill.

Notoriously Conservative reveals allegations that Obama has been forced to rebuke VP Joe Biden in private concerning Biden's motor-mouth.

Around-O-Town has good reading today on Obama-speak, which he refers to as 'Obamanese.'


What began as a small trickle with the election of Barack Obama and became a stream with the taxpayer Tea Party revolts has now become 100-year flood as California, arguably the most liberal state in the Union, has overwhelmingly rejected the Obama philosophy of increasing government spending and raising taxes.

Although Californians voted for Obama by 62%, an even higher number rejected a series of ballot initiatives that called for increased spending and massive tax hikes in order to address the state's dire economic emergency.

This is the stuff of which revolutions are made! Read all about it at Columbia Conservative Examiner.

This has broad implications for the entire country!

And this is my topic of discussion today at Columbia Conservative Examiner.

Thanks for reading and passing it along...

From Billy Beck: 'Hell is the Impossibility of Reason.'

From Free in Idaho: 'A Rifle, A Laptop, and some Comments.'

The Right to Speak and the Right to Protest

My analysis of the Obama visit to Notre Dame and the protests that ensued can be found at...

...Columbia Conservative Examiner.

I hope this spurs some thought-provoking debate...


It seems that Nan has been in hiding since Friday, preferring to withdraw from the public eye after her gargantuan debacle of a news conference in which she accused the CIA of lying to her.

Over the weekend Nan was nowhere to be found. Reports are that she has been holed up with her attorneys attempting to figure out what to do now.

Today she will in all likelihood creep back into the public eye (she has House business to tend), but what will she say?

Notably, the White House has declined a response to Pelosi's allegations.

Get Set to Pay for Viewing Online News

Apparently online news providers are running into the same problem as the print editions of newspapers--advertising alone is not enough to cover costs.

For this reason we may begin to see more and more online news services charging for the privilege of reading the news on the Internet.

This complete report explains the dilemma.

Netanyahu Will NOT Support 'Palestinian' State

Despite earlier reports over the weekend that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu would support the formation of a 'Palestinian' state in his meetings with Barack Obama in Washington today, Andrew Breitbart has issued a report stating flatly that Bibi has no intention of doing any such thing.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will refuse on his trip to Washington to back the formation of a Palestinian state, an MP close to the premier said on Saturday, according to national radio.
Netanyahu "will not make a commitment to Washington on the creation of a Palestinian state which would undoubtedly become a 'Hamastan'," Ophir Akunis from Netanyahu's right-wing Likud party was quoted as saying, referring to the Islamic movement Hamas which controls the Gaza Strip and favours armed struggle against Israel.

This comes as good news. The last thing Bibi needs to do at this point is to capitulate to an American President who has spoken and behaved as if Israel is nothing more than a mere spectator to the debate concerning its own survival.

Senator Graham Betrays Gun Owners

Senator Lindsey Graham, R-SC, has betrayed the trust of gun owners--and that means most of the people who voted for him in his U.S. Senate re-election bid in 2008--by signing onto a bill, S.391, that would create a central, federally-controlled anti-gun database.

If your pediatrician asks your child about guns in your home, and your child is honest about your gun collection, that information will go into the database. So will the fact that your grandfather, who fought in this nation's wars and protected its streets, was recently diagnosed with depression. He will not longer be allowed to purchase a firearm.

Read the whole thing at Columbia Conservative Examiner.

Be prepared to get fighting mad. This bill is an onslaught against American liberty!
