Thank you, President Obama

There are four words that I never thought that I would write, but I have been wrong before. Why these words?

Two weeks ago, I made my annual trek to the Charlotte Auto Fair at the Lowe's Motor Speedway in Concord. I took my usual assortment of auto parts, tools, military surplus items, and other junque. I filled my M101A1 trailer with an assortment of ammo cans. There were about 160 cans in the trailer. Over a three day period, I sold a bunch of ammo cans to many people who expressed fears that Obama and his Democratic sidekicks in the Congress will try to limit the right to purchase ammunition. I came home with only three of the ammo cans unsold. Thank you, President Obama.

The economy is so "bad" that I had the best show that I have ever had in Charlotte. Thank you, President Obama.

In other Obama-related news, the President and his family have received a dog as a gift from Ted Kennedy. Reports that the dog was a Saint Bernard with a five gallon barrel of whiskey under his neck proved to be erroneous. In an obvious tribute to the Mulatto Moses, Kennedy gifted him with a black and white dog. The dog is a Portuguese water dog. Any comments about the irony of a man who let Mary Jo Kopechne drown gifting someone with a "water dog" will be saved for a future post.

How about those Somalian pirates killed by Navy Seal snipers the other day?
Those boys needed to go back to negotiating school! If you are in a lifeboat being towed by a guided missile destroyer, your position is more than a little weak. They were about 30 yards behind the ship. That's like "drafting" in NASCAR racing. They didn't need SEALS to take out those guys. At 30 yards, almost any redneck buying ammo cans from me could have taken them.
