5-27: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for May: 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.
5-25: Here is hoping that your Memorial day is meaningful and profound. Our freedom as a nation and many of the nations of the world rests on the graves of those Americans who died for it. In other news the Folding@home page is updated today. Team Crunchinator earned 2,636 points by crunching 16 work units last week. That's going down in the Hobbies department today.
5-20: "As the Obama-Biden-Pelosi government takes ever more control over the direction and policies of our country, many of their ilk now seek to restrict and revoke your most fundamental freedom as a free citizen: your Second Amendment Right to Keep and Bear Arms to protect your life and liberty. Understanding that "gun control isn't about guns-it's about control," many Americans believe the recent anti-gun proposals in Congress represent just the tip of an enormous, advancing iceberg that could rip apart their freedoms like the hull of the Titanic-and they might be right." Learn more in the President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department.
5-18: Two weeks have passed since I've gotten an update from Folding@home. I sure wish they'd update their stats more often! I'd like to keep a weekly tally on our progress. Oh well, in the last two weeks we have earned 5,436 points by crunching 21 work units. Track our progress on the Team Crunchinator page in the Hobbies department.
5-15: No news is bad news over in the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Pepper section of the Hobbies department.
5-13: "American gun owners will stand resolute for enforcement of the rule of law against drug and gun traffickers. But when it comes to our Second Amendment rights, we will yield nothing, nor should we." This and much more on the Standing Guard page in the NRA section of the Extra department.
5-8: "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.
5-4: Team Crunchinator managed to crunch 23 work units for a whopping 3,386 points! Marvel at our progress or Folding@home's mistake in the Hobbies department.
5-1: MAY DAY! MAY DAY! Echo seven zero niner this is Tango Bravo Charlie, the House of Wacks has capsized in the Sea of Mediocrity. I say again, this is Tango Bravo Charlie, the House of Wacks has capsized in the Sea of Mediocrity, over. Dang! the radio is out. OK folks, this is going to be a rough month, women and children to the lifeboats! Hurry, WOMEN AND CHILDREN FIRST!!
