Update:  Rachel’s on Twitter thanks to Tanner for the tip.

Flying out of Philadelphia (PHL) several weeks ago – I happened to look down from the left side of the plane at the buildings below, only to find this thoughtful message from those in the airport’s flight path. In Google Earth, go to these coordinates: 39°55’0.42″N 75° 6’0.88″W Or click this Google Earth link (open […]

If it weren’t for the time zone differences, I could be home three hours earlier! All politics aside, Alaska  is a breathtakingly beautiful place. From the country song: “Life isn’t about the number of breaths you take, it’s the moments that take your breath away.”

The Reach of the Tea Party

Category: Homefront, Politics | Comments Off

Following Friday’s endorsement on the Mark Levin Show of Joe Miller’s Senatorial campaign in Alaska, Traction Control is here to support the effort. Such is the reach of the Tea Party. We are motivated. We are able. And we are pissed.

There was one thing I didn’t see at Joe Miller’s campaign site.  So I asked, “What about guns?” Joe Miller’s Research Director, Matt Johnson informed me that Joe is: ∙ A Lifetime member of the NRA (since his teen years) ∙ A former FFL Dealer ∙ A former member of the West Point Rifle Team […]

Hey, where are all the old people?

Joe Miller has been endorsed by Sarah Palin and Mark Levin in his race for the Alaska Senate. While Joe is planning to be in Fairbanks, I’m traveling to Anchorage to set up an interview with Joe’s Communications Director. Check back for updates! Meanwhile, check out JoeWMiller on YouTube. The Alaska Primary Date is August […]

This afternoon, while quietly reading  F. A Hayek’s The Fatal Conceit: The Errors of Socialism in the Philadelphia Airport’s Admiral’s Club, this screen flashed up on CNN: It was the caption that caught my eye: My immediate thought: This is another front where the administration’s quest for “Social Justice” will cause actual injury to liberty […]

Texas Flag Fail

Maryland doesn’t seem to get the whole Texas Lone Star flag dealeo. This pic was taken this evening at the Longhorn Steakhouse in Baltimore.

Two Sundays ago, my phone rings and it is Alan Gura on the line! I regret to announce that prior commitments will prevent Alan from attending this year’s Gun Blogger Rendezvous. He did say that he hoped to make the GBR a regular annual event in the future! Thanks, Alan!  And keep up your good […]

From IMAO: Democrats are starting to get panicked as the midterm election approaches, so I thought I’d start a sort of charity where people can donate large boxes. That way, we’ll have something for the Democrats to live in so they don’t get rained on. Also, I think it will be a good visual aid […]

Just 23% Say U.S. Government Has the Consent of the Governed – Rasmussen Reports Uh, oh. “The notion that governments derive their only just authority from the consent of the governed is a foundational principle of the American experiment.”

Must Read American Spectator essay by Angelo M. Codevilla.

Mr. C has them. Also, Glock is donating a pistol. Make you plans now to join us at the Silver Legacy Hotel in Reno, NV Sept 9-12.

A man should look for what is, and not for what he thinks should be.

GunBlogger Caleb was eliminated last night in Top Shot‘s 5th Episode. Story here. As long as there are no true GunBloggers in the competition, Traction Control shall never speak of the show again. Sad.

From NRA-ILA: Fairfax, Va. – Today, the U.S. State Department announced its support for the United Nations’ “International Small Arms Destruction Day.” The State Department, under the leadership of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, calls this ridiculous event part of the United States’ ongoing efforts to support the “rule of law around the world” and […]

Heckuva job …

Michell Malkin posts: Another ass-kicking: 5th Circuit rejects White House drilling ban appeal And closes with “Heckuva job, Team Obama. Heckuva job.” I commented with: “I know you must have been tempted to use another noun for “Team Obama.” “I applaud your restraint.”

Lowly blogger posts solution to Gulf Oil spill. Obama’s select team of Nobel Laureates yawn. The real hat tip is to a caller to the Mark Levin radio show.

Not here. It’s at Captain of a Crew of One. Check out Curtis’ place for classes and rules; then download the target and join the match!

 Just in case none of the Nobel Laureates on the Obama Team who have been “working since day one on the problem” do not tune in to the Mark Levin show, a caller has the answer to stopping the spill: A tapered dowl (solid steel, gradually tapered, heavy enough to offset the wellhead pressure) […]

 A story via email: Last week I was in Atlanta, Georgia attending a conference. While I was in the airport, returning home, I heard several people behind me beginning to clap and cheer. I immediately turned around and witnessed one of the greatest acts of patriotism I have ever seen. Moving through the terminal was a […]

Well, maybe Obama knows about some exceptions to the law? For the record, Traction Control understands it to be a matter of law. It is a Yes or No question based upon someone’s having met (or not having met) the qualifications for Citizenship. h/t Hot Air
