This project is going to be sick. I'm building an M16 A4. I already have the lower set up and I have ordered the upper assembly with the knights M5 RIS handguards. And now I'm saving up for an ACOG. Getting a free sure fire from my dad, same one he carried in 2003 when deployed. I guess the army never accounted for it so he got to keep it and his personal M4 already has a surefire on it. It's going to be sick as hell. Probably will have it complete in a month, I'll post pictures.

The state of the liberal mind is on display on this weekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cover of Time magazine.
The already notorious cover takes the iconic photograph of U.S. Marines planting the American flag on Iwo Jima and substitutes a tree for the flag. Why TimeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s editors did this explains much about contemporary liberalism.
The first thing it explains is that liberals, not to mention the left as a whole, stopped fighting evil during the Vietnam War.
As I wrote in my last column, whereas liberals had led the fight against Nazism before and during World War II, and against communism after the war, the liberal will to fight communism, the greatest organized evil of the postwar world, collapsed during the Vietnam War.
The Vietnam War did to American liberals what World War I did to most Europeans Ã¢â‚¬' it rendered them anti-war rather than antievil.
That is why liberals have gone AWOL in the fight against Islamic totalitarianism. As during the post-Vietnam Cold War, when liberals fought anti-communists much more than they fought communists, they fight anti-Islamists much more than they fight Islamists.
Thus, Democrats routinely dismiss the Bush administrationÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s talk about the threat of Islamic terror as Ã¢â‚¬Å“scare tactics.Ã¢â‚¬Â
But Ã¢â‚¬' and this is a primary reason for TimeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cover Ã¢â‚¬' liberals know that they have largely opted out of the fight against Islamists; their only passion on this matter is abandoning the war against Islamists in Iraq.
But like nearly all people who believe in a cause, they know that they have to fight some evil Ã¢â‚¬' after all, the world really seems threatened by something.
So they have channeled their desire to fight threats to the world to fighting an enemy that will not hurt them or their loved ones Ã¢â‚¬' man-made carbon dioxide emissions.
It is much easier to fight global warming than to fight human evil.
You will be celebrated at Time, Newsweek, the New York Times, the BBC and throughout the media world, no one will threaten your life, there are huge grants available to scientists and others who fight real or exaggerated environmental problems, and you may even receive an Academy Award and the Nobel Peace Prize. Individuals who fight Islamists get fatwas.
The Time cover is cheap heroism. It is a liberal attempt to depict as equally heroic those who fight carbon emissions and those who fought Japanese fascists and Nazis.
Second, for much of the left, the cover reflects the primacy of environmental concerns over moral concerns.
For example, the left seemed never to care about the millions of Africans who continued to die from malaria largely because of the environmentalistsÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ worldwide ban on the use of DDT as a pesticide.
The same holds true for another left-wing environmentalist fantasy. Changing corn into biofuels is causing a surge in food prices throughout the world. The European Union continues this policy despite warnings even from some environmentalists that food shortages, starvation and food riots are imminent.
But human suffering is not as significant as environmental degradation.
Third, the left is far more internationalist Ã¢â‚¬' global, if you will Ã¢â‚¬' in its orientation than national.
As the Time article states, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Going green: What could be redder, whiter and bluer than that?Ã¢â‚¬Â Whereas, for most Americans, patriotism remains red, white and blue; for much of the left, it is green.
Fourth, the further left you go, the more inclined you are to hysteria. From the threat of DDT to the threat of heterosexual AIDS in America to that mass killer, secondhand smoke, the left believes and spreads threats that, unlike the threat of Islamic terror, really are Ã¢â‚¬Å“scare tactics.Ã¢â‚¬Â
Years from now, TimeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cover will be regarded as another silly media-induced fear.
But, as with TimeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s 1974 article warning its readers about Ã¢â‚¬Å“another ice ageÃ¢â‚¬Â and its many articles on the threat of heterosexual AIDS in America, Time will just let public amnesia deal with credibility problems.
Until then, however, one fact remains: Today, conservatives fight evil and liberals fight carbon emissions. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what this weekÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s cover of Time is about.

So if anyone even watches me still I'll give you an update on my life. Basically life's good and going in the direction I want it to. I am going to graduate high school in a month, go to the Citadel in the fall. Completely in and all that, working on a full scholarship right now and according to the Captain in charge of that at the Citadel I'm up there on his merit list. So essentially bad ass education for close to free, a guaranteed active duty commission into the US Army, chances to go to Jump Schol and Air Assault school. So bad ass. I seem to spend all my money on guns now, I have around 7 1/2 guns (1/2 cuz I'm halfway through building another gun) My next gun is going to bethe king of my collection, an M16 A4, hells yeah. Basically I get a paycheck and go buy gun parts. Oh yeah since it's been that long last November I got a job at Dicks Sporting Goods in the gun department. Been paint balling more and more so the money I don't spend on guns goes there. Still working out like a nut case, me and a buddy who's a power lifter who holds state titles lift and then spare. Some intense shit, lifting like a maniac then go straight into beating the shit out of each other. On weekends I drink more beer than you can imagine. My room is covered in bottles, mostly Negra Modello and Shinner Bock right now but I have a case of Smithwicks coming up. I don't know how I do it, I drink myself stupid then get A's in school and run miles like it's nothing. I'm fucking pissed, the Blackhawks were so close to making the playoffs. Got my motorcycle permit last week, going to try and get the license sometime soon and save up for a bike.
I'm going to try and check this site more regularly so make yourself heard if you still give a shit about my existence.

So I was standing around outside the mobile station with a few close friends looking for a place to
drinkand every five minutes I was talking to someone new who I was pretty good friends with and taking a hit from whatever they were drinking (I also realized that my towns police are really inept because half my schools population is walking around the mobile station drunk as hell). Either way I'm feeling good about myself.

An extremely modest man was in the hospital for a
series of tests, the last of which had left his
bodily systems extremely upset.
Upon making several false alarm trips to the
bathroom, he decided the latest episode was another
and stayed put. He suddenly filled his bed with
diarrhea and was embarrassed beyond his ability to
In a complete loss of composure he jumped out of
bed, gathered up the bed sheets, and threw them out
the hospital window.
A drunk was walking by the hospital when the
sheets landed on him. He started yelling, cursing,
and swinging his arms violently trying to get the
unknown things off, and ended up with the soiled
sheets in a tangled pile at his feet.
As the drunk stood there, unsteady on his feet,
staring down at the sheets, a hospital security
guard, (barely containing his (laughter), and who
had watched the whole incident, walked up and asked,
"What the heck is going on here?"
The drunk, still staring down replied: "I think I
just beat the shit out of a ghost."
