Quick Stop Thought Shop

We’re busy preparing for “winter weather”, which in Georgia means we are making sure to get our normal grocery shopping done before the “bread and milk” panic sets in. The weather people are calling for up to 2 inches of snow, but we won’t believe that until we see it on the ground.

Here are a few thoughts to keep you busy, while I chop and split some firewood, clean out the fireplace, and prepare for the ensuing “storm”.

Thought #1

Are the rats jumping ship or what?

First Byron Dorgan (D-ND) announces he will not be running for re-election in 2010 and then, on the same day, Christopher Dodd (D-CT) announces the same thing. I know I am no expert in politics, but I don’t remember any prominent members of the party in power announcing they will “retire” rather than run for re-election, especially during a mid-term election when re-election chances for incumbents is so high.

Then again, looking at the popularity of the health care reform legislation and the fact that both of these men voted for it, maybe I should be shocked that more rats haven’t jumped ship, yet.

Thought #2

Candidate Barack Obama stated several times that health care negotiations would be covered on C-SPAN.


He lied, and lied, and lied, and lied, and lied. Now, people on both sides of the aisle are angry that he has broken his promise. Why not let the cameras in?


Hat Tip: Vinny

Thought #3*

And finally, I want to take a moment to congratulate Brian Ott, as he opened his new business over in Douglasville this week.

I have met a lot of cool people in the area because of the Tea Party movement, and Brian and his wife Teresa are a couple of the coolest.

If you ever need your firearms repaired, cleaned, or refinished make sure you stop in at Ott Gun Works. You won’t be disappointed.

*Disclaimer: This was not a paid advertisement, in fact I bet it will take a couple of days for Brian or Teresa to see this.
