    Why do people still fall for the “Climate Change” lie? Because the “free and open” debate is rigged from the beginning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gmlh6zbeuWU

    War on women, Virginia edition
    http://hotair.com/archives/2014/02/21/war-on-women-virginia-edition/

    “…the war is in full gear, but itโ€™s being conducted by Democrats. Barbara Comstock (R-Fairfax) had a piece of domestic violence legislation ready to go in the Old Dominion and it had broad, cross-party support. That is, of course, until her opponents realized she was running for higher office…”

    “The bill, HB1, was introduced by Del. Barbara J. Comstock (R-Fairfax) and would increase the amount of money that can go to victims of domestic and sexual violence and funds for combating those crimes, while also launching a subcommittee to study streamlining the funding process for agencies that deal with the issue.

    Sen. Janet D. Howell (D-Fairfax) recommended in committee Wednesday that the bill be carried over until 2015, a motion that was approved on a party-line vote.”

    I hope the VA GOP uses this in a commercial.

    Could McAuliffe expand medicaid by himself?

    Good grief. Four years of this sh*t. God help us.

  6. Soldiers complaining of poor M4 reliability.

    “During the comparison, the M4 failed 186 times across those categories over the course of 69,000 rounds fired.”

    • I’ve only been able to put 150 rounds or so through my M1A, but so far, failure rate = zero with 30-year-old Mil-Surp ammo. ๐Ÿ™‚ Was kinda shocked to get a misfire on the .30-30, though. Brand new, name-brand ammo, deep punch on the primer. Nothing. At least it wasn’t a hang fire.

      Gotta wonder if M4 problems are result of poor maintenance or is this Eugene Stoner’s ghost telling them “This is NOT what I designed”.

  7. J-Walking without an ID? Of course she had it coming. ๐Ÿ™„

    “We know you got an ID in there somewhere. Cough it up. We got some doughnuts to catch.”

    I was in Kiev last week — the lull before the storm. I visited St. Michael’s cathedral between business appointments and heard this gorgeous music playing softly over the loudspeakers at the entrance. It was Canadian-Ukrainian composer of sacred music Roman Hurko’s Liturgy No. 2 of St. John Chrysostom. My Ukrainian friend bought be the CD at the gift store as a little present for me. The music is, not surprisingly, divine. Here is a particularly touching vespers chant: Gentle Light.

    Please pray for Ukraine.
