InstaGlenn links to an article in The New Geography that does a brilliant job of highlighting Obama’s demographic woes.  When the president visits suburban backyards, it sometimes seems like a visit from a “president from another planet.” After all, as a young man, Obama told The Associated Press: “I’m not interested in the suburbs.

October 29, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on An update on TrainMeAz | Filed in: Uncategorized.

According to Alan Korwin, the issue with the TrainMeAz.com bus stop ads comes down to how TrainMeAZ is advertising for training and is not (completely) about firearms. Because TrainMeAZ is an aggregator for training opportunities and not pushing one trainer over another, the city of Phoenix believes that violates their policies on non-commercial use of • Read More »

An SM-3R missile from a Japanese destroyer blew up (yet another) test ICBM today off the coast of Hawaii. While our current  President may not like such things (something he and Kim Jong-Il have in common), the fact remains that missile defense systems have a better success record than Obamanomics.
