United Nations Arms Control Vote

China Cyber War

U.N. Resolution 2117 lists 21 points dealing with firearms control, but perhaps of most interest is point number 11: “CALLS FOR MEMBER STATES TO SUPPORT WEAPONS COLLECTION, DISARMAMENT”

Don’t believe me? UN Security Council resolution is linked below, just go there and scroll down to #11 and read for yourself. Via a 53-46 vote the U.S. Senate has voted AGAINST the U.N. resolution. This is that brief, glorious moment in our recent history
when 2nd amendment advocates get a huge win. In a 53-46 vote, the Senate narrowly passed a measure that will stop the United States from entering into the United Nations Arms Trade Treaty. Continue Reading →

Harvest Moon Sept. 27 and into the early hours of Sept. 28

On the night of Sept. 27 and into the early hours of Sept. 28, the full Moon will glide through the shadow of Earth, turning the Harvest Moon a golden-red color akin to autumn leaves.

The action begins at 9:07 PM Eastern Time on the evening of Sept 27th when the edge of the Moon first enters the amber core of Earth’s shadow.  For the next three hours and 18 minutes, Earth’s shadow will move across the lunar disk. Totality begins at 10:11 PM Eastern Time.  That’s when the Moon is completely enveloped by the shadow of our planet.  Totality lasts for an hour and 12 minutes so there is plenty of time to soak up the suddenly-red moonlight.

Figuring that’s the end of it, he gets another ball out of his bag and plays on. On the eighth hole, a Mobile County Sheriff’s Deputy walks up to Joe on the course and says, “Did you hit a golf ball through a window back there?” Joe says, “Yes I did.” “Well,” says the deputy, “it knocked a lamp over, scaring the dog, which raced out of the house onto Schillinger Road.
