ATVs are for Wusses

Now that the headlines are proclaiming the arrival of $25/barrel oil, it may be time to consider a vehicular upgrade.  The Yin of yesterday’s art post must be balanced by the Yang of Total Destruction or the equilibrium of this blog will never recover.  The environmental-types would definitely not approve.  I want one.

“The unmanned, remote control tank that can go from 0-60 in 3.5 seconds and reach 80 mph while driving over piles of rubble and lesser UGVs? Well, guess what… Now it’s got a big frikkin’ gun on it.” [via BotJunkie]

Adirondack Ghouls during Christmas

December 27th, 2006 · 9 Comments · Miscellania

Some of my readers might notice the news sidebar on this site. That’s the place where I tag news items of interest as deemed by me, The Editor. Never one to hold out on another Adirondacker, especially one of the few really good bloggers in our area, my technique was shared with the Almanack. I suppose the definition of what is “Adirondack” news can be loose and free, even I stray occasionally.

OK, so I tagged an article about the Canadian forces surrounding a group of Taliban in Afghanistan. With the obvious mainstream media bias, good news from our conflict in the Middle East is hard to come by. Agree or disagree, we have friends, neighbors, and FELLOW AMERICANS fighting and dying over there right now while we fritter away here.

LGF and others have noted the “Disgusting and Ghoulish Beyond Belief” Associated “Press” story entitled “US Iraq Deaths Exceed 9/11 Count“. Imagine my surprise to find this article tagged under “adknews” !!! Well as we say in the North Country, “Merry Frickin’ Christmas”.

My message to those “over there” – Illegitimi Non Carborundum

Update: Before you ever believe another “report” from AP or if you still believe in their objectivity, read this: Jamil Hussein controversy. The “fake but accurate” Dan Rather fans may simply move along.

I agree, 9/11 and Iraq, there is a connection.

This is Why
