Alf the Wonder Beagle in Full Snow


You'd never know she was 11 years old...she crams her head into the snow like she's tracking badgers. Miserable outside, to be sure.

I've been listening off and on to the Colorado Senate, where the Republicans are quite literally doing (borrowing a phrase from Dave Kopel) doing the last stand at the Alamo. Good on them! There are a couple of data points I'd like to bring forward...several of the Republican Senators absolutely said they planned to violate the Colorado Ban and just head up to the uber-Cabela's in the Free State of Nebraska whenever they need mags with a capacity of greater than 15, which is probably about what 75% of the people in Colorado will do.

As reported on The Truth About Guns, on the MSNBC (a.k.a. Pravda) Rachel Maddow show today Colorado Senate President (Democrat) John Morse said:
...that his approach to constituents who are trying to contact him about current gun control legislation, and the advice he’s giving his fellow senators, is to ignore them. That, rather than have a conversation and debate your opinion with the people who you represent, you should ignore them and “do what [you] need to do.”
Think about that... Remember what John Hickenlooper said Friday, as I reported yesterday.  Okay, you think we're crap you can wipe off the bottom of your shoes. Given that, I've grown a bit tired of Democrats whining about how we don't love them. We're hostile, we're unruly, and my favorite, we're not professional. Gosh, here's a hint — people who are in the process of being raped seldom have warm and fuzzy feelings about their rapists.

Be nice to Alf. It may be soon that she will have more rights than you.

It always comes down to one vote.

Whether it's standard capacity mags or the Heller decision. It comes down to one vote.

Here's hoping the good people of Colorado use their one vote and send their Bloomberg Brown-nosing Democratic senators packing.

I will toast the campus carry victory with a 32oz Mountain Dew.

it sounds to me like that's a politician who needs to become unemployed at the next election, or sooner if colorado law provides for recall petitions/votes.

Nice coat you got on the Wonder Beagle. Nice to know my smallish beagle isn't the only one a "winter collection".
