News of the Day


9-29: Team Crunchinator did pretty good last week. We crunched an impressive 12 work units thereby earning 2,854 points! Read all about it on the Team Crunchinator page in the Hobbies department.

9-26: I'm harvesting chili peppers as fast as I can eat them and I'm starting to fall behind. Plus, I've found a new brand of Thai fish sauce! Read all the yummy details in the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

9-24: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for September: 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.

9-22: Team Crunchinator over in the Hobbies department is reporting in this week with 11 work units crunched. This earned us 2,706 points. Not a bad week's work for this aging machine!

9-19: The chili peppers are starting to redden! Curse my metal body, I'm not fast enough to eat them all! See nature in the raw on the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

9-17: "Summer's over, the Supreme Court has spoken and, by a 5-4 decision, the world now knows that the Second Amendment does, indeed, protect an individual right. Now that we've celebrated, it's time to focus on the future-and that means the 2008 general elections, and the stakes couldn't be higher." Yep John Sigler is talking about Obama who has supported and proposed some of the most radically oppressive gun bans and anti-gun laws in American history. Head over to the President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department for more information.

9-15: A respectable week for Team Crunchinator over in the Hobbies department. Not as good as we have been getting but still ... swell. We earned 2,486 points by crunching 10 work units. Check it out if you don't believe us. Check it out if you DO believe us. I think the bottom line there is "check it out", so you go do that and I'll wait here.

9-11: Never forget.

9-10: 'What do a radical South Side Chicago priest who has demanded that law-abiding firearm dealers and state legislators be "snuffed out" and Chicago's political boss, who is "livid" and "outraged" over the Supreme Court's recognition of the Second Amendment have in common? Influence over Barack Obama.' And yes, it gets worse. Check out the Standing Guard column in the NRA section of the Extra department for the rest of this eye opening article.

9-8: Team Crunchinator in the Hobbies department is up again. Folding at home is coming along at a nice pace considering the age of the machines we are using. Last week for instance we crunched 11 work units and earned 2,608 points. Our percentage ranking is still rising every week. Not bad considering.

9-5: I am awash in Thai chilies! Check it out in the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

9-3: "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.

9-2: This weak at folding@home is not as good as the week before but is great nonetheless. We managed to earn a whopping 2,810 points by crunching 12 work units. Not bad, not bad at all. You can view our triumph any time without the worry of being sucked up into the machinery and crunched like a number by visiting the Team Crunchinator page over in the Hobbies department.

9-1: Although the rest of you may be getting some relief from the weather, September is typically the hottest month here in the desert. So while you privileged yoinks get to traverse a day without feeling like you are walking on the sun, the House of Wacks has the worst of what summer offers still ahead of it. We aren't ones to complain though, we are a proud people and we wipe the gritty sweat from our necks and stand proud... in the shade... with a cold drink... in front of a fan... with wet towel over our shoulders... in shorts... inside... cause there is no way in HELL we are stepping out that door! So anyway, new month and everything is rolled over. Joke of the Weak for September is up now.

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.
