I miss my hiking buddy.

The short life of Kelby, Iraq War veteran, friend and best dog in the world

Kelby and author in Baghdad, 2003 in front of the company command post. I buried my best friend yesterday.

She was an Iraqi War veteran, explorer, protector and my best buddy.

I'm guessing Kelebi (her name means "my dog" in Arabic) was born in Baghdad, Iraq in May 2003. I found her during a reconnaissance mission in June (full story: http://exm.nr/OcEPTM). Our…

The image below isn't mine, but it perfectly sums up the effects of the Obama economy.  It comes from  the webpage of Congressman Trent Franks (R-AZ) (http://1.usa.gov/zdHUAN).

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
