|all i have been doing lately is working. i am sick of it. something is wrong when a 22 year old, white male has a Bachelor of Science degree in criminal justice and is working a job making under $10.00 an hour. we hear that there is a plethora of jobs out there.. well, my response is this.. you cant live on a job that pays minimum wage or 7 bucks an hour! well, you can but you work over 50 hours a week and BARELY make ends meet. i just hope that i get a job within the field i have wanted to work in for so long here before too long.|

The National Rifle Association (NRA ) has filed a motion for contempt against the City of New Orleans, the mayor and the acting chief of police for failure to comply with a temporary restraining order, handed down September 12, 2005, ordering an end to all illegal gun confiscations.
“With looters, rapists and other thugs running rampant in New Orleans, Ray Nagin issued an order to disarm all law-abiding citizens,” declared Wayne LaPierre, NRA executive vice president. “With no law enforcement and 911 available, he left the victims vulnerable by stripping away their only means of defending themselves and their loved ones. Now Ray Nagin thinks he’s above the law, and that’s just wrong.”
Attorneys for NRA have exhausted all efforts to cooperate with the defendants, Mayor Nagin and Chief Riley, who repeatedly ignored the court’s permanent restraining order against their illegal gun confiscations.
“Ray Nagin is a colossal disappointment,” said Chris W. Cox, NRA chief lobbyist. “During a federally declared emergency, he abused his power and abandoned the very people he was sworn to protect. He took away the victims’ freedom and their basic means of self-defense during an ill-fated and perilous time.”
The motion also includes an order that all seized firearms must be returned to their rightful owners.
Established in 1871, the National Rifle Association is America’s oldest civil rights and sportsmen's group. Four million members strong, NRA continues its mission to uphold Second Amendment rights and to advocate enforcement of existing laws against violent offenders to reduce crime. The Association remains the nation's leader in firearm education and training for law-abiding gun owners, law enforcement and the military.
I just found an amazing website with BEYOND a plethora of information pertaining to the outdoors, warfare, and survival.. everyone should check this website out..
this site is unreal. you can sign up and register for free and browse the forums and they have EVERYTHING you could ever want to know about survival, etc. just thought that i would share.
also, i was surfing the internet the other day and i came across some pictures that kind of served as a non-nostalgic memory of how bad things can get... as you see the pictures below, may they remind you of what happened on 9.11.01 and may we never forget those who died and how radical islam is extremely dangerous.
well, i got a friend to sign up on here and get a blog... i helped him with his template and its basically a knock-off of mine but i changed his background and a few of the links and all... check his site out and leave him a comment.
now i am going to go to work and be miserable for about 6 hours. not to mention that this is the 6th day in a row i have worked for more than 6 hours...
I couldnt believe this when I saw it. I thought it was very interesting and I figured I would post it for everyone to check out. Then again, I am into all the astronomy stuff... I have a Criminal Justice degree, but hey, I took 12 hours of Geology and Earth Science... haha. I dont know it just has always interested me for some reason.
