Why Didn't Christ have an AK?

Read it and weep. Arizona has less stringent gun laws than Mexico. Makes you think about that statement that if we all had guns we would be safer, just like Mexico, or Somalia.

Three Ways to Be a Brass Band

First, from Denver

The second from Wisconsin--

The third is from the Balkans. They have been sampled recently by Galactic, Balkan Beat Box and on the album series electric Gypsyland. They rock!

and for grins, an old favorite.

A Sad Day's Thoughts

After the shooting in Tucson, it becomes all the more obvious that the vitriol of the political debate--where politicians cite second amendment solutions, without fear of being brought up on treason charges--really is out of control. If he was working alone and over the edge from listening to too much talk radio, we have an issue.

It is just a sad state of affairs when politicians have to fear for their lives because of stands on such things as health care.

It also shows how far off the dialogue is in this country--where expanded health care that embraces capitalistic principles of the insurance business (except a 20% cap) is seen as socialist. The democrats let everyone call it Obamacare with calling it something else and the so-called "liberal" media calls it Obmamcare, not even thinking of the spite and hate in that title.

Happy New Year

and may it be more peaceful than last year.

and today I see Lindsay Graham is asking for permanent bases in Afghanistan. You would think that as our debt grows, you might see a fatal flaw with imperialism. I had hoped that the term imperialist would have been long time dead since my time in college in the 70s. Looks like as a country we have learned nothing since then.
