U.S. proposes ban on almost all pocket knives

Tagged:  

Occasionally I will carry a small knife tool. The govt keeps reaching further into our lives.
U.S. Customs & Border Protection (CBP) has proposed revoking earlier rulings that assisted opening knives are not switchblades. The proposed new rule would not only outlaw assisted opening knives, its broad definition of a switchblade would also include one-handed opening knives and could be easily interpreted to cover most other pocket knives, even simple old-fashioned slip-joints.

Finding Homes For Cats

My daughter has been very active in helping stray cats in her area (neutering, vet checks, socialization) & has created a website to find homes for these cats. She won't adopt them out until they're 'good to go', and is careful about the homes she places the cats with (some cats do well with kids & dogs, others do not). Please take a minute & check out her site, and keep it in mind.

Check out my site and keep us in mind in the future if you choose to adopt a cat:

Free NRA memberships to all

The NRA is giving FREE 1-year memberships to everyone who wants to JOIN. It needs to build up its membership to fight pending legislation actions by this administration and the current congressional leadership that will impact our 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms. It is very important for anti-gun congressmen to see how many people they will have to fight to get their legislation through.

Clean OUR House!

Ladies and gentlemen, this is our city and these politicians work for us, not the other way around. If an employee had Carty's track record he would have been fired a long time ago. I personally believe that Carty has done an extremely poor job and needed to be fired some time back. Whether I'm right or not is irrevelant, what is relevant is the condition the city is in now.

Chrysler payroll checks bouncing? Anybody know?

My sister in law (laid off from GM) said she saw on the news that employee paychecks from Chrysler bounced. Did anybody else see or hear this? (she also said that her health benefits were just cut, she's been laid off for a month so far).

Under Restructuring, GM To Build More Cars Overseas

Under Restructuring, GM To Build More Cars Overseas

By Peter Whoriskey
Washington Post Staff Writer
Friday, May 8, 2009

The U.S. government is pouring billions into General Motors in hopes of reviving the domestic economy, but when the automaker completes its restructuring plan, many of the company's new jobs will be filled by workers overseas.

According to an outline the company has been sharing privately with Washington legislators, the number of cars that GM sells in the United States and builds in Mexico, China and South Korea will roughly double.

Gangs soliciting money for protection?

My mother lives in Toledo and one of her neighbors said she heard gangs are soliciting money fir protection, She said for $50 / month they would protect you and your property. I was appalled by this but then I gave it some thought and I think that is a small price to pay for protection with the upcoming police layoffs. There is a large number of Toledoans
scared so it is not so hard to believe.

Pope's new crusade to take Jerusalem

The Israelis are insane to permit the pagan pope to pollute the Holy Land of Israel! Of course, it's treacherous vultures like Shimon Peres, collaborators, who welcome the bloody representative of the Vatican to the Jewish homeland - not normal Jews.

A truly self-respecting Jewish nation wouldn't let the pagan pope step foot in the Holy Land of Israel unless he was bringing the Temple treasures and Judaica the Vatican holds hostage with him.
