Fair warning to the “there’s no difference” crowd, this is a link to a post on DU (where there’s a risk that you may actually see someone acknowledge that, yes, the Democrats actually do something right on occasion, which I’m able to understand utterly destroys the myth that “there’s no difference” and therefore makes you “haz a sad”), but it’s FUNNY.

Tims Need to Know

I wanted drive a Porsche once more in my life so purchased this car after I was fired from my job. I told myself when it need tires I would sell it. The couple that came on Sat. will own the car this Tuesday if not Monday. When I was young I had a 1957 Porsche Speedster. It was a lot of fun but you drove it for few days then you worked on for few hours.

UN Again (and other stuff)

The UN is talking about a global gun treaty again.  This time they are keeping their deliberations secret so far, so no one can tell if they are still after US gunowners (I suppose the secrecy is an ominous hint though).

But the NRA is on their case:

Not sure if the UN fully understands that the NRA is bigger than they are.  They might be in for a rude awakening.  If the treaty offends the NRA I bet there will be about 90 senators voting against it.

BTW, Olympics time again.  Time to show the world who’s boss.  Opening ceremony is tonight.

And if it’s not too late, check out this week’s PBS Frontline.  It’s about a drive to do away with the last very-large-scale salmon run in the world (it’s in Alaska), and replace it with the world’s largest strip mine.

(Well, according to the industry, the two are compatible, but they aren’t, really.)
