So much for the name change idea

Ok, I've not had many responses to my previous post, but everyone has said I should keep the name, so that's what I'm gonna do.

On to the next subject. Blogtalkradio. In case you haven't noticed, there is a Blogtalkradio button, that takes you to where my "show" would be if it could get going. I've had a couple of false starts with it, and I'm still thinking how best to go ahead.

Here's the deal. I have to call into this from home, so I need peace and quiet. My two choices are while my boys are at school, OR late at night after every one else is asleep. For me, this gives me a choice of 4 days during the day time, or 3 specific nights. The days are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and/or Friday. The nights are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. At night, I'm looking at sometime probably after 12:00 midnight Eastern time.

So, what does everyone think? Or should I just forget it?

Considering a name change for BGA's BG(G)B

Ok, so I've been thinking for some time that I might rename my blog. For more than a few reasons. But I guess I have to ask my (few?) loyal readers, is this a good idea or a bad idea?

The focus would still be guns, and for the most part, Right of Center politics, and, whenever I can find an appropriate subject, anything that would concern the Pink Pistols. And even some GLBT (or LGBT, if you prefer) subject matter as well.

If anyone has an opinion on this, please speak up. If I hear nothing, then I will most likely go ahead and change the name.

And just so you know, one of the reasons is, I'm hoping to draw a bigger readership. I think that some might be scared off by the name. But what do I know.

A retraction, of sorts.

I've come to the conclusion that my previous pronouncement about Barack Obama being our first affirmative action president, is slightly off. In spite of what some other members of the VRWC think, I believe affirmative action had little to do with his selection. However, SELECTION is the key word. Obama was selected by the Main Stream Media (MSM) to be the next president. And make no mistake, they did everything in their power to see to it, that THEIR selection won.

This past election day, the people did not win. Not by a long shot. Instead, the self-appointed demagogues of the 4th Estate, they won. We the People, lost, big time.

Not even in office, and it's starting already.

For those of you who have not seen it, President Elect Obama HAD a page on his site, www.change.gov/agenda/urbanpolcy.  That page is now (as of 11/10/08) gone. However, I found a snap shot of it on Google, and had it converted to pdf format. You can view it here. This will show you just how Obama REALLY intends to treat gun owners. When you view the pdf document, scroll down to page four. That's where the "fun" begins, under "Crime and Law Enforcement."

Affirmative Action reaches new heights.

It occurred to me just a little while ago, that affirmative action has reached the pinnacle of success. We now have a President who has been elected by virtue of affirmative action. This cannot be denied.

He entered the political scene in 1997, when he was elected to the Illinois state senate. He remained in the Illinois senate until he was elected to the US Senate in 2004.

He took office in 2005. Two years into FIRST his senate term of 6 years, he announced his candidacy for President of the United States. This was on Feb. 10, 2007. He got to the top office in the land in a little over 10 years.

By contrast, JFK, of whom many Democrats like to compare BHO to, served in the US House of Representatives from 1947 to 1953, and then in the US Senate from 1953 to 1960, before being elected President. It took JFK 13 years, not counting his time in the US Navy.

Now, some might say that there's not much difference. But I will point out this. BHO's 10 years only include 3 in federal office. All 13 of JFK's are in federal office. As either a Representative, or Senator.

And I put it to you, had JFK tried running for President after just 2 years in either the House or the Senate, he would have been laughed out of the race.

So yes, Affirmative action had a hand in this last presidential race, whether anyone else wants to admit it or not.

Now, lest you think I'm prejudiced. I'll tell you straight out, I am. But it's not the color of his skin that bothers me. He could be red, brown, black, pink, or WHITE. I still would not have voted for him. It's his politics I'm against. I'll never vote for a socialist, a communist, a Marxist, or a gun grabber. I'm pretty sure he's all of those. But if I'm wrong, I know he is at least one of those.

Every dog has his day, I guess this is Obama's

Never mind that he lied about how he would fund his election.
Never mind that he's the most liberal Senator in federal gov't.
Never mind that he might not even be legally able to run for the office.

He's now president-elect, and that's that. Well, we had 6 good years, I guess it's only fair the Democrats get a chance to ruin things even worse.
