News Roundup

  • From the "Bad Thing" Department - Officials at Fort Bragg are investigating the disappearance of 14,000 rounds of 5.56 ammunition.  Hopefully it's found.  That's almost enough ammunition for a long weekend at Knob Creek.
  • From the "Don't Hold Your Breath" Department - The NLRB is investigating violence at a union strike against a grain terminal in Washington state.  If you expect much to happen, I have some swampland in Arizona you might like.  The funny thing here is that the union isn't protesting use of non-union labor or walking out because they're employed at the grain terminal and don't like the pay or whatever.  They're protesting because the workers at the terminal are part of another union and they don't like that.  So basically they're mad because the protection money is going to another gang.
  • From the "Business as Usual" Department - The head of teachers' unions in Chicago reports that Mayor Raum Emanuel cursed at her during a discussion about lengthening the school day.  I've got news for her:  this isn't anything new or unique.  This is how Emanuel and the rest of the Obamonauts do business.  Don't complain when the dog you've let loose on everyone else turns around and bites you on the ass.

I have no idea what you're talking about on the ammo, DaddyBear. On a totally unrelated note, our big shooting trip is coming up soon and should be a blast! hehe
