    That does not look like new construction. Where is this beautiful church?

    We don’ need no stinkin’ fire trucks…….


  3. Bo looking good with his own Marine Three helicopter to Martha’s Vineyard. Too bad he has to share it with a big ol’ bag of Presidential basketballs, but after all, he is just a dog.

  4. Pat Caddell says Obama is an egomaniac. “No one takes him seriously.”
    Apparently there’s a CIA operative from Benghazi who refuses to be polygraphed and is in contact with Congress.

        Interesting. It’s to “fill the gap” which has already been filled by the .338 Lapua (as well as the .40 CheyTac and others). And, getting off a reasonably ‘fast’ second – or even multiple – shots at 1000 meters plus with any degree of accuracy is going not going to work as well as it’s advertised. There’s nothing wrong with having a long-range semi-auto sniping rifle…it’s just that there isn’t really any honest justification for it. Especially at $6000.00 a pop.

        And, the $100,000.00 titanium AR-10 that Nemo built was a one-off that they did just to prove it could be done. They will, however, run one off for you…if you pay up front, 😉

          I have a titanium wristwatch. Yes it’s light and matches your body temp real quick. But it got nicked up pretty easily, and the treading on the crown stripped. So I’d be reluctant with that titanium AR-10 even at $1000.

  5. Hey Bob! Weren’t re just talking about the finer points of rodentia?

  6. Remember having adults in the White Hut?
    … President George W. Bush, who routinely allowed journalists to accompany him on golf outings early in his presidency, told Politico in May 2008 that he decided to give up the game in August 2003 after a bomb attack on the United Nations headquarters in Baghdad that killed a top U.N. official.

    “I don’t want some mom whose son may have recently died to see the commander-in-chief playing golf,” Bush said. “I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them.”

    “And I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong message,” Bush said.

    Feel like being disgusted…again…by the leftists?

    Well…got just what it takes…

  8. solaratov says:

    So-o-o-o…you think you’ve got all the guns you need?
    HAH! And you call yourself a mall-ninja?!

    Obviously, you’ve never met the gerbil. If you had, you’d know that you’ve gotta be up-armed and totally tactical……

    😆 😆 😆

    [OTOH…why not?]

    My good deeds for the day!

    ZurichMike was showing a colleague around downtown Zurich today. I bought a little box of champagne truffles at Teuscher Chocolates and walked to the Tom Ford boutique where the incident occurred (now hilariously called “Purse-gate” by some in the European press), and left it for the sales clerk (it was her day off today). I almost felt ashamed walking into such an elegant store wearing just basic khaki trousers, Topsiders, and a collar shirt. The young salesman on duty was tall, handsome, and wore shoes and a suit I would not be able to afford myself. The boutique is like entering another world — rich, discreet, quiet, elegant, and private. The young man was very touched and thanked me and my friend profusely on behalf of the sales clerk. Oh, we glanced at an woman’s clutch made from the skin of an engaged alligator species, about 7″ x 5″ x 1.5″ — yours for just $11,000! So handy for lip gloss, a credit card, and some Tic-Tacs!

    I also met Trudy Götz (the owner of the Trois Pommes and Tom Ford boutiques) and introduced myself. At first she was a bit leery — even speaking Geman, I have an American accent, but after I unloaded on Oprah, she smiled, and thanked me for my support! She and her staff have taken an unnecessary beating because of that waddling mess from Chicago.

    Check out the photos in the link below. Compare the stylish shop owner’s outfit (the forest green leather bolero jacket, silk blouse, and brightly patterned Capri pants) with the absolute MESS that is Oprah and her gal-pal Gayle King.
