My wife found this recipe a while back, and let me tell you it has been a family favorite ever since. You'll need the following ingredients Fresh pineapple rings. The canned stuff just doesn't cut it. Cheddar cheese (I like the chipotle slices if I can find them) Sliced ham Bagels BBQ Sauce. I highly recommend Sweet Baby Rays, especially the chipotle kind if you like a little heat First, toast the bagels a little.

Why shouldn't we require licensing for having children? Nobody would be "denied" having children, but you'd have to take courses, pass a mental competence test, waive your 4th amendment rights from time to time for surprise inspections and have 20,000 laws which dictate exactly how you may raise your children - laws which differ from county to county, state to state and pay a fee that has to be renewed from time to time (only several hundred dollars). By poorly raising your child, he or she may...

David at War on Guns Boy, if it's not who it looks like it is, someone is going to a lot of trouble to set up circumstantial evidence to frame him. That's why my call for an independent investigation is the only way to resolve this. I totally agree. While the evidence is circumstantial, it's fairly damning to Alex Riley. However, if it isn't Alex posting as NRAFOUREVER, whoever it is needs to be brought to light.

Remember I was talking about doing a comic strip? I finally nailed down the look of the main character. Meet Cooper. This, of course, is just a sketch (using a 6B pencil). Mostly it's going to be ink outlines with no shading, but this was an attempt to give him a little dimension to make sure it would work. Cooper is loosely a mix of an English sheepdog and a Greek sheepdog (Hellenikos Poimenikos). I wanted more muzzle than the English had but wanted to keep the fur to cover the eyes (I had...

I like this turn of phrase A gun is a joy of engineering.  It is a nifty machine that throws a rock in a straight line.  It is classically civilized. It's an interesting (albeit a bit morbid) article that talks about the difference between knife and gun fights. It's actually a good read to understand why personally I think crimes committed with a knife are worse than those with a firearm. With the knife, it's personal.

Mom is in her 3rd chemo treatment today. 3rd of 6 total. While technically "halfway" will be 10 days from now, as far as treatments go this is the middle. She's been able to hang in there. Tomorrow she'll be ok, Thursday she'll start feeling rough and will be out of commission on Friday and possibly the weekend. Then after that, she's ok until the next treatment with only the standard issues normally associated with chemotherapy. But, at least it is, for the most part, halfway over.

It is considered "reasonable" to restrict 2A rights when the "greater good" is served. Law abiding citizens are told that it is in their best interest if they are closely monitored when purchasing firearms, licensed to do so, registration, fees, etc. since these "reasonable infringements" will somehow lower the number of guns in the hands of those who would use them with ill intent. The justification for this is that we have a crime problem. Some of that crime is committed with a firearm. And...

JR has a wonderful conversation with a man who shot himself in the legs during an ND. As gunnies we're more inclined to call everything an ND rather than an AD and this case actually has some merit to the whole "negligent" angle. One thing to pull from this is whatever you carry, practice with. A gun you're not that familiar with can be a very dangerous thing.
