    Got a call today from the Bernalillo County Clerk’s Office. They want to have a table there to offer information on how to sign up as a poll worker, etc. I told the caller “Sure — not a problem.”

    He should be grateful he’s not in prison where he belongs.

    Here’s the PT standards for a “Conservation Officer” applicant:

    15 push-ups in 1 minute

    27 sit-ups in 1 minute

    Hell, even my fat gimpy ass could manage that.

    Of course, those are the standards for *applicants*. We’ve all seen enough 400-lb cops to know that they probably aren’t enforced past graduation.

    As always with the Obamatons and Obama himself, liberty is like property, money, life, and pursuit of happiness — “What’s mine is mine, what’s yours is negotiable (and ultimately mine).”

    My main gripe about most Republicans is that they’re perfectly comfortable with trashing liberty in the same manner as Democrats and will sign off on the same sorts of policies as long as one of theirs is doing it.

    Add to Mr. Bertsch’s answer the fact that gun prohibitionists keep saying “We don’t want to take your guns,” while at the same time, they call for all sorts of legislation that makes owning, purchasing, carrying, using or repairing a firearm more difficult. More to the point, they never answer the question “What sort of gun ban will you refuse to sign off on?”

    So when they say “We don’t want to take your guns,” why in Hell should We The Gun Owners believe them?
