This is just too amusing.  Even had Jr looking over my shoulder cackling.

This is the youngest member of the ol’ broad’s brood.  Sister’s youngest grandson, Dawson.


Ain’t he cute!  Not quite sure what to make of me and Jr quite yet.  We only got to spend about an hour over at the zoo.  I was just too exhausted, and the brain stopped working.  Right now, we are ensconced in a motel in Huntsville, both of us are oblivious and time to turn off the light.  I’m not sure why, but we just HAD to watch Twilight….AGAIN!  For a third time.  What is it with that movie that has teenage girls losing what little sense they had to begin with?

Well, tomorrow we’ll get to spend more time with the family, and see the rest of the young’uns as well as brother in law Tom.

What Part of “Shall Not Be Infringed…”

Stocking up on Guns and Ammo Americans Flock to the Gun Stores
by J.D. Longstreet

Just a snippet:

It is good to know that 75% of Americans believe the constitution guarantees the right to own a gun. A whopping 92% of Republicans say the Constitution guarantees their right to own a gun, compared to 64% of Democrats and 71% of adults not affiliated with either of the major political parties.

The Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution states, “A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” The amendment is part of the Bill of Rights.

Gun control advocates have argued that the Second Amendment refers to the arming of a militia for the common defense and is not a guarantee of an individual’s right to own a gun. The National Rifle Association and numerous political leaders, both Democrat and Republican, among others, disagree.

The road to enslavement to the federal government has already begun, with ever increasing taxes.  The Declaration of Independence states that sometimes, you have to dissolve a tyrannical government, in order to preserve freedom.  Well, without the ability to defend ourselves, we will be submitting to tyranny, whether it is from thugs on the streets, or the thugs in our nation’s capital.
