Nine days out

We're just over a week away from Election Day. I think the race is a lot closer than the mainstream media would like to admit. I'm still planning to hold my nose and vote for McCain/Palin, but lately (since the "bailout" abomination) I've been considering voting for Bob Barr (the Libertarian candidate) or Chuck Baldwin (the Constitution Party candidate). Since Alabama's a pretty safe bet for McCain, I'll feel a little more comfortable doing this. I don't think I would consider it if I lived in a battleground state.

This weekend I went to a gun show in Columbus, Ga. while visiting my parents. I decided to go ahead and get started on my black rifle--I bought a receiver for an AR-15 (it's a DoubleStar, from their STAR-15). I can order the rest of the pieces by mail or over the Internet, since the lower receiver is the only component that is regulated by the BATF. And, best of all, I've already got it in my hands--before the Messiah and the Ancient Cheerleader have a chance to ban me from buying it.
