Happy Earth Day Al Gore!

I guess I'm a little slow, tonight I figured out how Al Gore is going to save the planet! He's intends to do it by killing off all of the humans (except of course, himself and his buddies). It appears the the agenda that he is pushing to "save the environment" is doing far more harm than good.

As said on http://palousitics.blogspot.com/2008/04/happy-earth-day-al-gore.html, "the rush to replace fossil fuels threatens global famine." Further on, we find that rain forests (the haven of the "greenie") are continuing to disappear, this time to grow crops to produce more ethanol (and even more greenhouse gases).

Given that he is driven by emotion and bad "science", he can't possible understand why all his "good" is doing more harm...

Happy Earth Day Al Gore!

TIME disgraces war heroes for global warming

Here's an update on Al Gore's Carbon Tax from Grassfire.org:

From the Desk of:
Steve Elliott, President, Grassfire.org Alliance


We knew Time Magazine had already sold out to the radical Al Gore Global Warming hysteria...

But the latest cover goes even further by picturing a fallen tree in the arms of the Iwo Jima Marines and equating the "War on Global Warming" with America's struggle to save the world from fascism.

This is a disgrace to those Marines and every American who has worn the uniform to defend our nation!

Go here to see the outrageous cover:


+ + "Going Green" the new red, white and blue?

Time says the "war" on global warming is a "similarly momentous challenge" to our World Wars, the Great Depression, putting a man on the moon, the intercontinental railroad and beating polio!

Time concludes by saying "going green" is the new red, white and blue -- the height of patriotism.

+ + $1.2 Trillion Al Gore Tax coming before summer!

Al Gore and the radical Climate Alarmists are using unfounded science and the willing spin of the media elites to push a massive, $1.2 Trillion Global Warming Tax. We have less than two months to stop the new tax. But the fact is, as this TIME article shows, the entire political, entertainment and media establishments are lining up to push this oppressive new Carbon Tax down our throats.

Will you please sign the petition by going here?


We already have 23,038 signers. I want to reach 100,000 in the next week and work with our key contacts on Capitol Hill to release this news to the media.

But I need your help.

Please see Time's outrageous cover. Read our backgrounder. Sign the petition. And please alert your friends.

Steve Elliott, President

Please do your part to oppose this tax!

I just signed a petition and am asking you to join me.

LCAV attempts to persuade the public...

Organizers of a Naperville gun control rally were treated to a healthy dose of unintended consequences Monday night when firearm owners packed the rally by a better than ten to one ratio. Billed by organizers as an “educational forum,” the rally was actually nothing more than an airing of well-worn lies and dubious public opinion polls aimed at supporting gun control legislation now pending in the state capitol. During a Q&A session, attendees soundly rebuked the organizers for their divisive perpetuation of half-truths about the role of firearms in the hands of law abiding citizens.

Held at the Naperville campus of Northern Illinois University, the gun control rally was sponsored by the Illinois chapter of California-based gun control group, Legal Community Against Violence (LCAV). Moderating the forum was gun control movement veteran Steve Young. Young is the former Illinois chapter organizer of the now-defunct Bell Campaign. Young also served as the Illinois chapter head of the now-defunct Million Mom March. Of the approximately 175 attendees, all but a handful were gun rights supporters.

“It was gratifying to see such a large turnout by law-abiding gun owners,” said ISRA Executive Director, Richard Pearson. “It was probably the first time that many of them have come face to face with the people who want to take their guns away. This was an opportunity for them to hear first hand the deception and outright lies that are the underpinnings of the gun control movement. For nearly an hour, gun owners in the audience sat through presentations that assailed their sensibilities. When it came time for attendees to speak out, gun owners made it clear that they were not buying the gun control song and dance. I actually think the event organizers thought they’d win some converts last night. I’m sure they’re sorely disappointed this morning.”

“The LCAV claims to have not only broad, but active support for their gun control policies,” continued Pearson. “Yet, despite plenty of publicity, they were not able to generate much in the way of support for last night’s forum. Everywhere I looked, I saw IGOLD hats and NRA hats and ISRA sweatshirts. Our people packed the forum just like our people are lighting up the general assembly’s phone lines to express opposition to gun control bills now under consideration.”

“Probably the biggest blow to the LCAV’s credibility came when Young rolled out polling data that supposedly shows that better than 80% of Illinois gun owners support LCAV gun control policies,” said Pearson. “After the snickers died down, I asked gun-owning members of the audience who support LCAV gun control policy to please stand. Not a single person stood.”

“If the state’s gun owners support gun control as strongly as claimed by the LCAV, then why aren’t gun owners marching on Springfield to demand passage of gun control laws?” asked Pearson. “If 75-plus percent of gun owners want so-called ‘assault weapons’ banned, then why are they buying them up like hotcakes? If Illinois gun owners are as ‘anti-gun’ as the LCAV polling data suggests, then why do they even own guns in the first place? It just doesn’t make sense. But, then again, the ‘facts’ presented by the gun control movement rarely make much sense.”

Thanks to all of you who came out to protect freedom in Naperville on Monday night!

Remember, gun control is a disease - YOU are the cure.



Here's the latest from the ISRA. Please act now!

As many of you may already know, HB 4357, the 2008 version of the Daley “assault weapons ban” will probably be voted on this week in the Illinois House. This bill would ban most, if not all of the guns you own. Banned guns would include most semiautomatic rifles, pistols and shotguns. If this bill passes, you would be forced to suffer the indignity of registering with the State Police just like a sex offender. If you choose to preserve your dignity, then you would have to move either yourself or your guns out of state. A second bill, HB758 would ban private sales of firearms. That means that you would have to find an FFL to complete private sales from your collection. Both bills are clear infringements on your 2nd Amendment rights. Only you can protect your rights. You must take action, NOW!

Here’s what you must do to preserve your rights:

1. Call your legislator and POLITELY tell him or her that you oppose HB4357, and HB758.

2. If you do not know who your legislator is, or how to reach them, visit the following link and follow the instructions: http://www.capwiz.com/nra/state/main/?state=IL&view=myofficials

3. Pass this alert along to all your gun owning friends. Also, please post this alert to any and all Internet bulletin boards to which you belong.

It appears that the People's Republic of Chicago Criminal Empowerment Program is at it again. Please do all that you can to prevent this from happening!


Texas Survey

This one also come courtesy of my friend Hank:

The latest telephone poll taken by the Texas Governor's office asked whether people who live in Texas think illegal immigration is a serious problem:

29% of respondents answered: "Yes, it is a serious problem."

71% of respondents answered: "No, esto no es un problema serio."

What do you think?

This should clear the air for some folks......

This one came from my friend Hank:

The Difference?

John McCain and Hillary Clinton were walking down the
street and came to a homeless person. The Republican, John McCain, gave
him his business card and told him to come to his office for a job. He
then took $20 out of his pocket and gave it to the homeless person.

Hillary was impressed, so when they came to another homeless person, she
stepped forward to help. She gave him directions to the welfare office,
then reached into McCain's pocket and got out another $20. She kept $15
for administrative costs and gave the homeless person $5.

Now, do you understand the difference?

ISRA Alert - Anti Gun Rally in Naperville

Here is the latest from the ISRA

ISRA Alert:

The San Francisco-based “Legal Community Against Gun Violence” (LCAV) will be holding a gun control rally in Naperville on Monday, April 14, 2008.

The LCAV plays a crucial supporting role in Chicago Mayor Daley’s attempts to take your guns away from you. California lawyers write the actual legislation designed to ban and confiscate your guns, tax your ammunition, ration your ammo purchases and register you like a sex offender.

It’s time for Illinois gun owners to tell these Californians, “MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!”

Here is what you need to do:

1. Gather up all your firearm owning friends and assemble at the Naperville Campus of NIU, 1120 East Diehl Road, Room 101C, Naperville, IL. The campus is on the south side of Diehl Road, approximately 1/8 mile west of Naper Boulevard. Plan on arriving no later than 6:45 PM.

2. If you still have your iGOLD t-shirts or hats, wear them. If you have NRA or ISRA hats, wear them. DO NOT bring signs or other items that might get you kicked out before this thing gets under way.

3. Be advised that you will be in close proximity to people that hate your guts because you own guns. They will attempt to insult you and provoke you. Stand your ground, challenge their every assertion. Freedom is at stake here.

4. Please distribute this alert to all your gun owning friends and post it to every Internet bulletin board to which you belong.

San Francisco a Sanctuary city?

As reported by Grassfire today:

Dear Robert,

San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom is launching an $83,000
outreach campaign designed to attract illegal aliens.

Using television, radio, posters and brochures
in five different languages, Newsom says, "We're
going to spend resources, time and energy to do
PSA's, to do campaign outreach into community clinics,
into public schools, into our police stations to
let people know what a sanctuary city is all about...

Newsom says illegal aliens answering his call need not fear
deportation. "We are doing the right thing," he said.

Robert, this arrogant thumbing of the nose by SF City
officials to the established laws of our land and the blatant
disrespect for those citizens who will be required to foot
the bill for these illegals is reprehensible, and demands
a strong reaction!

That's why I'm asking ALL members of our Grassfire team to take
a few minutes to contact Mayor Gavin Newsom and City Supervisor
Tom Ammiano.

++Action Item--Contact SF City Leadership

Mayor Gavin Newsom
phone: 415-554-6141
Email: gavin.newsom@sfgov.org

Tom Ammiano, City Supervisor
phone: 415-554-5144
Email: tom.ammiano@sfgov.org

Please contact both of these city leaders and express your
outrage over their public outreach effort welcoming illegal aliens.

Let them know that their plan is a "ringing dinner bell" that
will attract even more illegals--increasing the burden for
those living in San Francisco legally!

Urge them to do the right thing by enforcing our laws.

My e-mail to the Mayor of San Francisco:

Mayor Gavin Newsom,

I read today that you are undertaking an effort to turn San Francisco into a "Sanctuary City" for illegal aliens.

It's sad to learn that yet another government official is ignoring the rule of law in support of illegal aliens. I have to wonder "what's in it for you"? Given the exceptionally high costs involved, and the strain on law enforcement that this causes, you would have to be getting something in return.

I'm glad to hear that you have gone public with this. That way the law abiding citizens of you city can "get out" before their property values drop so low that they can't afford to leave. I'm sure that they will, given that they will have no interest in funding your illegal activities. The most "well to do" citizens (the ones that pay the highest taxes!) will be the first to go, as they typically have the most liquidity. As time continues, more and more tax payers will leave for other cities that follow the rule of law. Eventually, San Francisco will suffer the same fate as Detroit, MI, and be only a skeleton of what it once was. In the end, only the criminals will remain, of course, that includes the members of government that thought this was the "right thing".

My final question to you: Should this be a country in which every person learns to work, every person learns to save, every person learns to have a better future, and, by the way, is therefore responsible for working, saving, and creating a better future? Or is this a country where you shouldn't have to do all those things because it's too hard, and someone should take care of you? In which case, the question becomes: who's the someone, and why do you think they'll stay here?



Let your voice be heard!

ISRA Statement on Chicago Schools CEO Arne Duncan

ISRA Press Release:
ISRA Statement on Chicago Schools CEO Arne Duncan

CHICAGO, April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was released today by the Illinois State Rifle Association (ISRA):

On Tuesday, April 1, 2008, Chicago Schools CEO Arne Duncan stood at a lectern in the Thompson Center Plaza and essentially blamed the state's hunters and sportsmen for the murders of 20 Chicago school children. Duncan made his appearance during a gun control rally sponsored by Rev. Michael Pfleger of St. Sabina's Catholic Church. Pfleger is best remembered for his speech at an earlier gun control rally during which he called for the murder of gun shop owners and state legislators who oppose gun control laws.

Interestingly enough, at about the same time that Duncan was delivering his rant against the state's law abiding firearm owners, a report was released in "Catalyst Magazine" that indicates that just 51% of freshmen enrolled in Chicago public high schools stick it out to graduate.

"Studies by the Chicago Police Department indicate that 88% of murders are committed by people with previous criminal records," commented ISRA Executive Director Richard Pearson. "Likewise, those same reports show that about 76% of murder victims had records as well. Nonetheless, opportunists like Pfleger and Duncan persist in shifting the blame away from failed public policies and towards law-abiding hunters and sportsmen. The gun control measures these people advocate will never succeed in thwarting crime because they totally ignore the criminal element."

"It's ironic that the truth about Duncan's administration was being released just as he was damning the state's law-abiding gun owners," continued Pearson. "Maybe if Duncan did a better job keeping his charges in school, they wouldn't be out on the streets beating, knifing and shooting one another to death. If Duncan had any sense of responsibility at all, he would have been at the microphone apologizing to the people of Illinois for wasting their time and tax dollars. By all rights, Arne Duncan should be returning 49% of his $200,000 annual salary to the Chicago treasury. He's doing half a job -- so he deserves half his pay."

The ISRA is the state's leading advocate of safe, lawful and responsible firearms ownership. Since 1903, the ISRA has represented the interests of over 1.5 million law-abiding Illinois firearm owners.
