    Interesting my hairy swamp rat. This stuff is scary. Between this, the NDAA, the KBR solicitation for subcontractors to service FEMA camps, camps which were built in 2006 under the same pretenses as REX 84, and the 2005 publication of an Army field manual detailing how to establish and administer civilian prison camps on Army posts...well, you do the math.

    Holder is testifying before congress about this right now. Talk about BS. Congress got 5 boxes of documents from one gun dealer, but just one box from Justice as a result of subpoena.

    Basically, Holder is deflecting, and Dems are blaming Bush and calling for more gun laws to protect people.

    Yeah, we need a law to prohibit Justice including BATF from having guns. They've proven they can't be trusted with them.

    Yeah, they need more tools to track firearm purchases. They can't even keep track of the ones they're helping smuggle.

    At least committee member Sensenbrenner brought up the threat of impeachment. Doubt that will do much to help the DOJ become more transparent.

    Gun show loophole, assault weapons "that are made for the sole purpose of killing people", blah blah blah. Democrats piss me off. Look at how they are covering for Holder!

    Holder says he won't resign, big surprise there.

    He needs to go now.

    I have some guns for the sole purpose of self defense. Does that mean the same thing?

    Yes, that is in fact why I own them. I hope I never have to but I feel the need to have one if it becomes necessary.

    Also read where Dems in the hearing were trying to direct the questioning to other area they want to regulate more, gun shows, number of guns in a certain time frame.

    But the main questions remain.

    As one who has had to show I was armed to stop a possible break in while in my motorhome in WY, I'm VERY glad I was armed even though I didn't have to fire a shot!!

    Fast & Furious mystery: Holder’s absent e-mails

    Eric Holder has been holding out.
    That stunning admission came from the embattled attorney general under questioning from Arizona Congressman Trent Franks during Thursday’s sometimes volatile hearing by the House Judiciary Committee that focused on Operation Fast and Furious

    Don't know how much room is left under that bus, but obama will find a place for holder if things get much hotter.

    If I was Holder and I was being thrown under the bus I'd be sure I took my boss with me if I could! We can only hope I guess.
