Whoopi Goldberg In The NRA! Should I Cancel My NRA Life Membership???

Yep, you read it correctly. Seemingly ultra leftist, Whoopi Goldberg is, apparently in her own words, a member of the NRA. Since she and the others, on the May 9, 2012 edition of The View, were talking about guns and gun control with John Stossel, I have to imagine she meant the National Rifle Association and not some other organization that uses the initials NRA.

Gosh, it makes me want to reconsider having a life membership with them because I doubt very much that she has had a sudden change of heart from what have appeared to have been, and have appeared that way over many years, her ultra leftist attitude. Have I somehow read her wrong for all those years or did she join the NRA for something like shock value or just as a lark or maybe to be able to fall back on them for support should she ever be charged in a crime involving a gun that she keeps, in the closet (figuratively not literally) for self defense? I am simply flabbergasted. I hope to find out more about her NRA membership and about her views of the 2nd Amendment and the overall right to keep and bear arms.

Watch the video and pay attention to the audio, you can hear her say it herself:



Oh, I have to ask that you please do not start to think that I am a fan of The View. I may have watched 5 minutes of it, 10 at most, over the whole time it has been on television. I saw the news in a firearms forum and decided I had to share it with my readers. The thought of having a video showing Joy Behar, here on my blog, makes me want to puke! I would be willing to bet she is not an NRA member but a contributor to the Brady Campaign or similar organizations but her making me want to vomit has only a little to do with that; in general, I find her, her politics, her attitude and her mannerisms totally repulsive.

As for Whoopi being in the NRA - who woulda thunk it!!!!!!!!

Paul Harvey - If I Were The Devil...

This is a great prediction, well a warning at least, originally from 1965 but this may well be a revised version. It makes one heck of a lot of sense today if only becase it fits America so well right now:



I did not always agree with Paul Harvey but he certainly hit it right on the head sometimes! If nothing else, he certainly was an eloquent speaker with unusual intonation and a great voice.

All the best,

Arthritis - As Old As The Hills - It May Actually Be Older Than Most Mountain Ranges

When you think of arthritis, and that is probably not much unless you, someone close to you or one of your pets is burdened with it in one form or another, you likely do not wonder how long it has been around. The truth be told, or what seems likely to be the truth, is that arthritis has been afflicting creatures on earth since long before most, if not all, of our current mountain ranges were even hills.

It has been reported that scientists have discovered the fossilized remains of a pliosaur, a sea roaming, predatory beast, of huge proportions, that evidently had an arthritis like disease in its jaws. They say it suffered from it for years, long enough to put its jaws out of alignment so that the teeth (and some of its teeth were up to 8 inches long in a jaw about 10 feet long) of the upper jaw left marks in the lower jawbone. Ouch is all I can think. I have osteoarthritis and bursitis, have had disc surgery due to a completely extruded disc, and have suffered with Lyme disease twice. I know the terrible pain such maladies can cause even when the diseases are not severe. I cannot imagine living for years with excruciating arthritis pain, as they surmise this great beast must have done, that is until its jaw broke. They think it broke due to erosion of the jaw joint, misalignment and other arthritis caused damage - and never healed again thus maybe leading to its death by way of starvation.

Interesting article, worth a read. See it here: http://www.foxnews.com/scitech/2012/05/16/ancient-loch-ness-monster-suffered-arthritis/

If You Are Or Ever Were A Gun Blogger...

...now is not the time to stop gun-blogging. Now is the time to continue doing it with a passion while at the same time doing it civilly and with respect toward others who may have differing views on issues like gun control. I am not trying to say that you should show compassion and understanding to people such as those in The Brady Campaign. Rather, what I mean is that you write plenty of positive gun blog posts now, that are supportive of gun rights in a fair and respectable manner I (as in not like raving and ranting in a tirade of invectives), so as to draw more folks to our cause than you scare away from it. You can still call it as you see it and we need you to do just that. We need to get the fence sitters over on our side of the fence and the way to do it is with posts that show respect for them while remembering that maybe they voted for the current guy in office but are on the fence about whether or not they should do it again. This is an election year and we need all the help we can get to overthrow our current tyrannical dictatorship vote in a new administration, a more gun-rights friendly one, and get rid of the sitting one.

I have noticed that some pro-gun bloggers seem to be getting out of blogging or have simply not been all that productive lately as relative to posts that support our right to keep and bear arms and our right to be able to defend ourselves with them. I do not know the reason(s), there could be many of them. I am hopeful that those bloggers have not given up their guns and I am pretty sure they have not. I think though that they have given up, or slowed down, on gun-blogging. 

Come on folks, get back into it - we need to have you stick to your blog-guns, to see you consistent on the draw, to see your gun-blogs blazing away, to see your words accurately and reliably shooting down the opposition with no harm to bystanders and maybe even protecting them and their rights, to know you have our backs at this crucial time in what surely will become an historic election year either way that it turns out. Your blogs don't specifically have to be about gun-rights or gun-politics, heck you can just write about how much fun it is to shoot, about people defending themselves or their families with firearms, about your gun collection and why you collect, about how you hunt with firearms, about your target shooting experiences, about being a woman shooter I (as in a woman who shoots and not as in someone who shoots women), about gun shows, about gunsmithing, about training and tactics, about ammo, about teaching youngsters to shoot, or about how grandpa taught you to shoot and to respect our right to keep and bear arms. Yes, of course, you can and maybe even should also write about our right to keep and bear arms and our right to defend ouselves, our families and innocents with them.

Gun-blogging can do us a lot of good but we need you to get it out of the holster for the world to see it. Otherwise, you will just be shooting blanks and the next thing you might wake up to find are jack-booted thugs government agents or police breaking into your home to take away even your water-pistols.

All the best,
Glenn B
