Kerry did not own a Chinese assault rifle, as he was quoted as saying in Outdoor Life magazine, but a single-bolt-action military rifle
But what is the real answer? Many people shipped home many things in foot lockers at the end of a tour in Vietnam. Does he own a Chinese-made assault rifle or not? Let's see it. Since he only owns 2 - I guess he did not accept the union-gift-shotgun - this shouldn't be too hard. Or does he not want to show us, as he really has a Kalashnikov picked up during his time in Vietnam?
As the Posse says "If the man can't even give an honest answer on a simple survey, how the hell can we trust him on matters relating to national security?"

Independent Gay Forum: Carpenter, Dale. 'Gay First, Republican Second.' LCR's endorsement of Bush in 2000 made sense from a gay-rights perspective, even though Bush was objectively worse than Al Gore on gay issues. Bush had publicly met with gay Republicans, the first time a GOP presidential nominee had ever done so, and had pronounced himself a “better man” for having met them. He was making progress.If you believe in small government, that the government should have only enough control over our personal lives to ensure the peace, if you believe that the many agencies not authorized by the constitution should be eliminated, and that the Bill of Rights should be restored, then there is no place for you in either of the 2 major parties.
LCR's non-endorsement of Bush this year makes sense. Bush has taken a giant leap backward by actively supporting an amendment that is qualitatively more deadly to gay equality than anything any president has ever supported. It's a completely unnecessary and unforgivable betrayal of basic constitutional values.
But there is hope for the Libertarian Party. Organized in all 50 states, "The LP now has more than 600 office holders."
The Corner on National Review Online: "THE DHIMMI NATION: [Rod Dreher]Let's not upset anyone....
You really can't make this up. According to The Guardian: The Church of England said yesterday that police counter-terrorism operations were directed disproportionately against Muslims and risked alienating them.
Tomorrow: the Church of England discovers that Eskimos suffer disproportionately from cold weather.

The Union Leader and New Hampshire Sunday News - 24-Sep-04 - Londonderry school photo may lead to suitNo one is threatening anyone, nothing illegal is being depicted, but the idea that the picture of gun might cross onto the school grounds is scary to these people. Your picture can show your interests, so long as your interests are politically correct. So much for First Amendment rights.
A Londonderry High School senior may wind up suing the district after the administration denied his request to use a picture with a trapshooting gun on his shoulder as his yearbook photo
“That’s irrational, there’s no reasoning or thought behind it,” ... “Some schools have trapshooting as part of the curriculum.”
A Small Victory - Kerry's Exploding Fuel Tank
Yesterday, the gang that couldn't campaign straight hit a pothole of major proportions. Thing is, they didn't see it for what it was. The view from their car is, shall we say, skewed. The deep pit looming ahead appeared to be a pit stop; a place where they could get out of the car, stretch their legs and get a little repair work done. They would then use this pit stop to pick up more of those undecided passengers, as well as rally the crowd already in the car.
This pothole has a name: Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi.

Is this supposed to be an apology? Cincinnati Post says it has learned some lessons...
The Post's editorial page was embarrassed by this, in as much as we published an editorial Sept. 13 asserting that the CBS report did not reflect well on Bush and that it provided ammunition to those who say "the evidence is mounting about his character flaws.'' We compounded the damage by failing to note that questions about the authenticity of the CBS documents had been raised.\
What really happened is they couldn't wait to jump on the "Let's Attack Bush" train, and were then horrified to find out it was about to derail. And they can't admit they have just as much lean to the left as the rest of the mainstream media. They go to say that "the entire news industry" will end up with a black eye. No, only that very large percentage of the industry that rushed to judgment, and then hoped beyond hope that the Mighty Media could stand up the bloggers of the world. After all who would think that a bunch technically-minded political junkies would include experts on typefaces, typewriters, military jargon, the law, ... But wait, bloggers are just a cross section of the population - with a noticeable exception being journalists apparently.
To all the journalists: Get a clue. The game has changed, and you aren't making the rules anymore. If you don't know where to look for a clue, try the Cluetrain.
She said she was embarrassed to receive tax cuts advocated by Bush and supports her husband's efforts to roll them back for higher incomes and use those funds for education, health care and deficit reduction.Well then, she should give it up. I am sure there is somewhere in the Treasury Dept. she could send the funds. Failing that she could give the money to her favorote chariity.

I hope this will be a blogging clearing house for the real deal about this and other lies of the left.
