Salva_Kiir_Mayardit
Salva Kiir Mayardit is the first elected President of South Sudan, which seceded from Sudan exactly two years ago on this date. He wears a hat that was given to him by former U.S. President George W. Bush.  Hmmm.  This is exactly the kind of hat the President of the Republic of Texas would wear if it were to secede from the Union. Or the Republic of Kanoradobraska. It worked for the South Sudanese.  Hmmm.  Makes you think.

  1. Knight posted some good articles late on yesterday’s OT that deserve attention today, IMO:

    Suspicions Growing Over Death of Journalist Probing NSA and CIA Abuses: I didn’t think much about this at first, but it has grown to the point that it’s really chilling. Gotta read this… -Grunt

      I had someone who is anti abortion tell me that this pro-life add was pretty “heavy”, but nonetheless “straight-up-truth”. But you know what? I thank Jesus that these pro-life adds are straight-up… they should be. After all, murdering of innocents seem to be pretty dang normal. Personally, I thought this pro-life add was BEAUTIFUL, yet heart wrenching… the TRUTH. The silence of this life, this soul, is DEAFENING. I had to speak.

      Thank you Brother Grunt.

    • Knight4GFC says:

      I don’t know, but maybe I’m paranoid… you can thank our government for that. I think that this was a little much for “coincidence”. I don’t care what king of progressive-liberal you are, but if you make a wrong move, your masters, will eliminate you. They don’t care about you… just themselves. This is what most liberals do not realize.

      • Think more of them are beginning to realize it, and fear it. Much of the time, it’s not Conservatives who need to fear the “Chicago Way” that seems to be MO of the Democrat Party and of this Administration. They fight Conservatives with everything they have, but they don’t usually kill them. It’s the insiders and “wise guys” that get killed. The Jimmy Hoffas and Vince Fosters and Kam Kuwatas and team players who start acting like they’re leaving the reservation, like Michael Hastings, that they save the worst for.

    • Knight4GFC says:

      This kinda reminds me of the “DC Madam” case a few years back. She was MURDERED. Everyone believes that… I think.

    • I’m heard they’re bracing for something like 30,000 applications all at once. Serves ’em right. They’re the last state in the whole country to allow it.

    • Knight4GFC says:

      “..which would bring Illinois into line with gun laws in all of the other 49 states”. I beg to differ. Our law down here in Hawaii only suggests that it may be possible for concealed carry. Its been that way for many years. Not one CCW license has been issued… not one. You can try to apply, but they will not allow you to have one… period.

      • I believe you, and I think that’s criminal that they do that. But you may not be the only one. I think Delaware is like that, and DC. Alabama and California are also “May Issue,” but I think they actually do issue to more than zero residents.

        • barnslayer says:

          At least as far as NY is concerned you can translate “may issue” to mean “will not issue”.
          I’m in Nassau County which is only a bit better than NYC. I have a CCW but it is restricted “to and from target range and upstate where legal for hunting” dat’s all. If you are going to the range you are not supposed to stop anywhere enroute. Some private ranges give you a key and are thus open 24/7 so you could stretch the “I was going to the range” story.
