Night of Broken Glass

Sixty-Nine years ago was the start of the Holocaust. In Germany, Nazi soldiers and German citizens trashed Jewish homes and shops.

30,000 Jews were arrested and taken to concentration cames. These were the first of over 6 million that would follow.

Never again should a civilized society let this kind of tragedy occur again, and that is exactly what Ahmoud Imanutjub of Iran is wanted to do.

Never forget. Never again.

No 21-Gun Salute at BSU

Bob Kustra has stepped to a new low on his anti-gun agenda at Boise State University. This Veteran's Day (2007) BSU will not allow Military honors in a 21-gun salute citing concerns it might 'scare' people.

Bullshit. Kustra is just about as antigun as they get. I would be surprised if the Honor Guard is even allowed to carry rifles at all. If they do they will be the wood form that are quite obviously not real.

It has begun

Tonight during Glenn Beck's CNNhn news show I saw my first Christmas based commercial for the season. Garmin GPS fires the first shot. Christmas carols for the next two months.

Remember Remember

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
The Gunpowder Treason and Plot,
I know of no reason
Why Gunpowder Treason
Should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent
To blow up King and Parliament.
Three-score barrels of powder below
To prove old England's overthrow;
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, let the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
