Last Minute ONT [Ben]

Like President Obama, CDR-M is tasked with protecting America. Unlike President Obama, CDR-M shows up for duty. As a result, you're stuck with me and this last minute ONT.

Gun Sales Hinge On Obama Victory

As Cabela's prepares the selection of guns it will sell for the holiday season and winter hunting, the outdoor-gear retailer has two plans: one if President Barack Obama is re-elected, and one if he isn't.

The Sidney, Neb.-based retailer and other companies in the guns-and-ammo business say if Mr. Obama wins a second term they are preparing for a surge in sales—the same as they saw after he was elected in 2008—from buyers fearful the president would back policies to make buying a gun more difficult.

Peter Schiff on QE 3

Variously called Operation Twist, Quantitative Easing 3, and (by Schiff) Operation Screw, the new Fed plan to buy $40 billion worth of high-risk debt at low interest rates each month until morale improves is, Schiff says, the kind of thing that should make Bernanke a figure of fun for all Americans.

Judge Throws Out Governor Walker's Union Bargaining Law

So they want to have this fight again, huh? I think this is a sign of desperation. They're clearly worried that Wisconsin is in play this November and they're doing what they can to rally their troops (read:unions) for GOTV efforts.

I'm sure having this on TV during the run up to the election can only help our cause.

*I know this was covered, but I typed this up before that happened and I'm too lazy to take it out. Consider it a pre-contexualization(not a word) that you didn't get to see until now.

Sure, the Middle East Is On Fire, But Everything Is Hunky-Dory In Asia....Right?
I think we can all agree that this has nothing to do with foreign powers taking advantage of perceived American weakness.

The Japanese government and coast guard said six Chinese surveillance ships entered Japanese waters Friday near disputed islands in the East China Sea, adding to tensions between the Asian giants.

It was the first intrusion by Chinese vessels into what Japan says are its waters since Tokyo bought the islands from their private Japanese owners this week. The islands, claimed by both countries and called Senkaku by Japan and Diaoyu by China, are surrounding by rich fishing grounds and are near key shipping lanes.

Also perDrewM, we all know what this means.

Trailer Released For New Lincoln Movie

I love Daniel Day-Lewis. I think he's a fantastic actor and I've enjoyed every film he's been in, however I'm not too optimistic after watching this trailer.

A great comment on the trailer at Filmdrunk, "Jessolido: Montage where he tries on a bunch of different hats before settling on the stovepipe or GTFO."

Apropos of Nothing: Two Cool Videos

A great recording of Wagner: Siegfried's Funeral March. h/t Rdbrewer.

Triple H of WWE sees a kid with downs syndrome in the audience, breaks character, and brings him into the ring.

Alright folks, that's the best I could come up with on short notice.
