Life is Hard. Wear a Helmet

Sunday morning sleep-in randomness

The Famous Cajun has a fantastic post up concerning our president's view toward the patriotism of paying taxes.

"That’s the same thing as saying “Be ‘patriotic’ or we’ll confiscate your property and your money and throw you in prison.” There was a large country that defined patriotism thusly. Actually, there’ve been several: The Soviet Union. Nazi Germany. Fascist Italy. Japan up until a few bad days in 1945. North Korea. Is THAT what obama considers partiotism? Patriotism is LOVE. What obama proposes is prostitution, and eventually, rape."

Go read the whole thing.

I don't shoot S&W .40, but I know some of you out there do.
When I see an announcement like this, I can't help but fear that when it gets "disposed of" it can turn up at gun shows.
Caveat Emptor. Not everyone out there is an angel.

The FBI is working with Winchester on a potentially serious condition affecting all recently produced .40 S&W, Winchester, Q4355, 180grain, Bonded SERVICE ammunition. Some of the cartridge casings were produced without a flash hole. This condition completely eliminates the ability of this Service cartridge to fire.

This is a silent killer in that no visual inspection by FBI personnel can detect this manufacturing defect and it would only be known at the time the Agent attempted to fire their handgun. A limited number of problems have been reported: however, this is such a dangerous condition [that] immediate action across the FBI is necessary.

Affected ammunition will have a four character 'day code', two letters, two numbers, i.e., FA 42. All Q4355 with day codes beginning with the letter F and any Q4355 with the two letter combination of EN are included in this recall. This ammunition must be removed from FBI service weapons and magazines IMMEDIATELY.

Again, boxed ammunition with the following codes must be removed from service IMMEDIATELY:

  • Product Code: Q4355
  • Day Code: Any code beginning with F or EN

Things went swimmingly yesterday. I was able to scoot out and get home by one in the afternoon. Tired as hell, but feeling good.

Now for a quick run up to Quantico for a re-stock on beer and some taco ingredients. I happen to love my tacos spicy. I'll go as far as to add an extra dose of chili powder to the meat mix, and make sure there's some spicy salsa in the toppings. Mrs B doesn't go for it so much, keeps telling me to tone it down. (Then, when I do, she throws Cholula on there. WTF?)

Oh, and onions. A taco's not complete without some chopped white onion on it. Another topping that would get damn lonely in this house without me around.

--------------------------------------------------------
Oh crap. Bobbi just reminded me I need to run all the way across town to the asian grocery for some rice and spices, maybe some squid if the price is right. (Yes, kids. Squid...it's not just for bait anymore.)

Here I am, living just a stone's throw from Quantico Marine Resort and Spa, and there's only one asian grocery in town? WTF?

Maybe I'm missing something. If anyone knows of an asian grocers anywhere other than the one just off Plank Rd on the west side of town, let me in on the secret. I've got plenty of driving to do today.

Inappropriate humor in 3...2...it's all about the boobs.

Hell you SHOULD be able to find anything you need in the comissary at Quantico! They do have plenty of Asian foods!

Please go back to the old boob theme. I'll quit making fun of you.

Thanks for the PSA! I have a Springfield XD .40; have to look through my stash now.

Old NFO - They've got most of it there. I just need a few specialty items. Plus, you know, supporting a little mom & pop place makes me feel good.

Andy - Hey. I was just following your lead.

Insurgent - Anytime, bro.

Cholula's a whole lot of flavor, and not much heat. That's why.

We've got two types of cholula, two types of tabasco, salt, black pepper, and some curry powder on the spinning wheel o' condiments on the dining room table. Whatever it takes to make each person happy, eh?

I tend towards straight, no-frills Tabasco, but the Cholula is nice for a vinegary flavor.

No boob pictures?
