News of the Day

 

7-30: We have the first chili pepper harvest of the year! Check it out in the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

7-29: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for July: 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.

7-28: "The sacred beauty and supreme genius of what the Founding Fathers built for us through the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and our Bill of Rights is that we the people will always have the tools and ability to retain control of our country." Let's keep it that way OK? Read more in the President's Column in the NRA section of the Extra department.

7-36: Team Crunchinator reports a respectable week for Folding@home. It's all going down today in the Hobbies department.

7-23: There are recent pictures of the Bhut Jolokia chilies! Check it out in the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

7-22: "These are surgical-strike laws that do not affect the rights of law-abiding citizens, but they do get violent criminals off the streets and make our communities safer. Witness the concentrated enforcement in Richmond, Va.-Project Exile-in the 1990s that dramatically lowered crime rates and, in fact, caused criminals to disarm themselves rather than face sure and swift justice for illegal firearms possession and use." Now read about how Washington DC gets that all backwards on the Standing Guard page in the NRA section of the Extra department.

7-21: "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.

7-19: Team Crunchinator over in the Hobbies department had a good week, apparently hot weather is good for crunching data. We earned 2,275 points by crunching 11 work units.

7-16: Hot weather promises to give a boost to the Ghost chilies. Read all about it on the Chili Pepper Gardeners Diary in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

7-15: The NRA Archive is updated today with the monthly NRA page features for June: 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.

7-14: I'm playing catch up after a couple of vacations in a row. Today I'm posting all 3 NRA pages: President's Column, Standing Guard and Armed Citizen for June. Check it out in the NRA section of the Extra department.

7-12: Team Crunchinator over in the Hobbies department just keeps crunching right along, even when we are on vacation!

7-9: Good news in the Chili Pepper Gardener's Diary. We have produce! Read all about it in the Chili Peppers section of the Hobbies department.

7-8: Ahhhhh July. It's the month the American Cinco de Mayo happens right? Only without the big bee and the drunken wife beatings. This one is more about potato salad, pie and drunken wife beatings. A little known fact about the Fourth of July is that the Founding Fathers intended this to be a day of reflection, yes a day where you could look into a pool of your beer vomit to see if your hair is still combed. For a better joke, check out the Joke of the Weak.


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.
