News of the Day

 

4-30: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for April: Armed Citizen, Standing Guard, and The President's Column. Each of these features are valuable, information packed columns that you will find extremely helpful and interesting even if you are not a firearms owner yourself. For one, it keeps you apprised of the relative honesty and the intentions of the politicos you vote for. For another, it shows you the value of owning your own firearm for protection, recreation, hobby, business, and because for now anyway... you can. The Archives are available any day of the month from the NRA page in the Extra department, look for the link down at the bottom of the table of contents.

4-28: Team Crunchinator over in the Hobbies department had a suprisingly good week last week despite the fact that we couldn't connect to the server to get fresh work units for at least a full day. Even so we earned 2,107 points by crunching 10 work units.

4-25: High hopes for old seeds. Read all about it in the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

4-23: "If you believe, as I do, that the right to arms expresses a God-given right to defend yourself and your family from harm, then help me reach our fellow Americans with that life saving truth. If you believe, as I do, that the Second Amendment is the sword and shield of freedom - the one right that allows 'rights' to exist at all - then help me proclaim that fact, loud and clear, for Americans everywhere to hear." Read more from John Sigler and see how you can do your part in the President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department.

4-21: I don't know how we could be having such great Folding@home results over at Team Crunchinator with Termie alla time playing computer games, but by darn, we are. We earned 2,479 points last week and crunched 11 work units. All our results are on display in the Hobbies department.

4-18: I expected the chili season to be pretty low key this year, but not THIS low key. I have one plant this year as opposed to 24. I planned on 3. Read all about this potentially dismal chili pepper year in the Chili Pepper Gardeners Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

4-16: "The D.C. gun ban is, in essence and in fact, a ban on armed self-defense." Wayne LaPierre, Executive Vice President of the NRA discuses District of Columbia v. Heller, an important 2nd Amendment court case. Read more on the Standing Guard page in the NRA section of the Extra department.

4-14: A very good week for Team Crunchinator in the Hobbies department. A very good week. A who's been fudging the numbers kind of week. But it's true, despite defeating the Nazi War Machine in Call of Duty 2 last week, we were able to crunch 12 work units and earn 2,831 points.

4-9: "Armed Citizen" is an article in the "American Rifleman" very similar to one of my favorite feature articles in "Guns & Ammo" called "Armed Response". These articles consist of short accounts describing the use of firearms by private citizens to protect lives and property. These are the stories that the mainstream media ignore because they are not so much interested in presenting the truth as much as they are interested in furthering their anti-gun agendas. Some very interesting reading here. It's going on in the NRA section of the Extra department.

4-8: Have a smile on the House of Wacks. Check out today's Joke of the Weak.

4-7: Not a bad week for Team Crunchinator. Last week we earned 2,598 points by crunching 11 work units. All this and Termie was beating up on the dag nabbed Nazi's in one of his computer games. Check out our progress over the years in the Hobbies department.

4-4: This is going to be a very sparse year for the Chili Pepper Garnener's Diary but there is still things going on that a chili pepper gardener will fine interesting and relevant. Check it out on in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

4-1: The House of Wacks would like to wish you a happy and prosperous April Fools Day. Just kidding, we want you sad and poor, with your hand held out to the House of Wacks like a socialist to their nanny government. Just kidding, we don't care about you! Just kidding, we don't care about anything! K, enough of this BS, the House of Wacks is rolled over for a new month. Welcome to April, don't let March smack you on the butt on the way out.


No news on the weekends. The Joke of the Weak is updated every weekday. As usual, the Team Crunchinator page is updated every Monday. The NRA pages: President's Column, Standing Guard and Armed Citizen are updated each month. To catch up on news past visit, the News Archives.
