News of the Day

 

8-21: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for August: 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.

8-19: "I urge you to take advantage of all the NRA is and does to introduce someone new to our family and our freedom." Let the president of the NRA, Ron Schmeits, break that down for you on the President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department.

8-17: Could Stanford have turned over a new leaf? Once again the Folding@home user stats are up to date and I'm able to create a report from them. In general Team Crunchinator crunched 9 work units last week and earned 2,166 points for our efforts. The Hobbies department is the place to be today.

8-13: "Saving the Second Amendment and the Bill of Rights is a rallying cry for likeminded Americans to join our historic cause, and with that renewed strength in our fight for truth and justice we will prevail against those who would destroy our freedom." This and more from Wayne LaPierre on the Standing Guard page in the NRA section of the Extra department.

8-11: Well whitewash my butt and print an Obama-Joker poster on it, Folding@home has updated their user stats again! It's only been a week! I'm not complaining Stanford, just reeling from it. Team Crunchinator over in the Hobbies department has managed in this short time to crunch 18 units for a respectable 2,479 points this week.

8-7: "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.

8-5: Stanford's Folding@home has finally updated their user stats after... what, two months?? Come on Stanford, "alacrity" is not a bad word. Anyway, Team Crunchinator in the Hobbies department weighs in with a whopping 20,117 points earned and 83 units crunched! I guess you could divide all of that by 7 or 8 and get the weekly results. Sheesh. I'm trying to run a website here you pointy headed academics, I'd appreciate updated user stats each week!

8-3: Here comes the dog days of summer. While your feet are sinking into the asphalt and your sweat is sinking into your shirt and your shirt is sinking into your pants and your pants are sinking into your butt crack, think back on the cheery blustery cold days of January and be thankful you aren't freezing your ass off like you totally forgot about until now. Now go read the Joke of the Weak and get out of my hair you whiner! If you like to live in the past, go check out the Archives where July disappeared to.


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.
