Three News Items Representative of the "Change" in Washington?????
Better get busy, Folks. Lots of "Hope and Change" legislation being pushed through - "For The Children".
As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly. - Proverbs 26:11Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban"The Obama administration will seek to reinstate the assault weapons ban that expired in 2004 during the Bush administration, Attorney General Eric Holder said today....
"Holder said that putting the ban back in place would not only be a positive move by the United States, it would help cut down on the flow of guns going across the border into Mexico, which is struggling with heavy violence among drug cartels along the border. "I think that will have a positive impact in Mexico, at a minimum."
Remember,just a few months back he said - "I'm not going to take your guns away from you". Don't worry, It's for the Mexican Children. Really.

Wait, it get's better.
From Western Rifle Shooters comes this - Sneaky Back Door Gun Grab in Obama Budget?"A potential legislative gun rights battle looms today in Washington, D.C.," says Washington senior rights activist John M. Snyder."When President Obama submits his budget blueprint this week, reports indicate the proposal may include language designed specifically to repeal the Tiahrt Amendment," says Snyder, named the senior rights activist in Washington by Shotgun News."This repeal is an objective long sought by gun-grabbing politicians, the anti-gun Brady Center to Prevent Gun Violence and other extremist groups," he added".
Yep, they just can't help themselves, I guess.
These, Rotten Bastards, are not wasting any time in consolidating the American Government into a Politburo.
And if this doesn't upset you - and it should
- here's ANOTHER great, "Change We Can Believe In".
From The American Motorcyclist Association comes this -Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act threatens sale of youth model OHVs"The sport of off-highway recreation is seriously threatened by recent legislation that imposes strict lead content guidelines on children's everyday toys. The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008 (CPSIA) has effectively banned the sale of youth off-highway vehicles (OHVs). The AMA is calling for action now to help reverse the potentially devastating effect this could have on the sport of OHV recreation....According to section 101(a) of the enacted legislation, all youth products containing lead must have less than 600 parts per million (ppm) by weight. The CPSC has interpreted the law to apply to various components of youth OHVs including the engine, brakes, suspension, battery and other mechanical parts. Even though the lead levels in these parts are small, they are still above the minimum threshold...."
Yep, they want to ban Kids from riding Dirt Bikes. BECAUSE THEY MAY EAT THEIR FUCKING MOTORCYCLES AND GET LEAD POISONING!
Yes, that's heavy on the Caps Lock, I know. Can't help it this morning. This is stupid even by Washington, DC standards.
When was the last time you saw a kid chewing on the kick starter or the fender of his Motorcycle?
I've been aware of this CPSIA item for a couple of weeks and remiss in not mentioning it.
My riding buddy, MrT - AKA Retodd, called me last night and reminded me of this one. I've already let my representatives know what I think of this.How About You?
Now seems like a good time to get on the phone and call your Representatives.
Please excuse the grammar and syntax here. I'm Pissed. I'll edit it later.
