|THE MYTH OF "GUN CONTROL" LAWS EXPLODED|
April 13, 2009
If you are still in that small group of folks that believes in the myth that more "gun control" laws will decrease gun violence, or that taking guns away from law abiding gun owners will somehow make you safer, then watch this segment reported by John Stossel of ABC News which debunks the long held myth that more control over guns and gun owners will make us all safer. (Not).
When you watch this piece pay particular attention to the convicts they interview in prison about how gun control laws affected their decisions to do crimes with guns. CLICK READ MORE to bring up the video player.

At first this low quality video doesn’t seem like much but as it moves along you realize the shooter did some really interesting things with what he had to work with it. The video is produced by a guy named Azo. The whole thing is just Azo doing stunts and tricks while running, skateboarding, using bikes, etc., like in the game 'Mirror's Edge'.
It is shot from the point of view of his body moving forward into each space in each frame. The camera isn't attached to anything. It was either in his right or left hand while he moved around.
Too bad the quality wasn’t better. This is the kind of thing they need to expose film students to in order to show them what they can do with just one camera and an idea.
We give it two thumbs up Dick because it has a good beat and ya can dance to it. CLICK READ MORE TO BRING UP THE VIDEO PLAYER

This will amaze you. Check out 88-year-old Hazel McCallion who has been elected mayor of a major city in Ontario some 11 times in a row, has held the job for thirty years straight and has an approval rating of 92%.
Oh. Did we mention her city is DEBT FREE and it has $700 Million dollars in reserves! Oh. Did we mention she used to be professional hockey player and at 88 stills gets out on the ice and practices?
This woman redefines the term “senior citizen.” In fact, she may have made the term obsolete. Click READ MORE to bring up the video player.
|WHIDBEY ISLAND MUDSLIDE|
April 04, 2009
(WHIDBEY ISLAND, WA) -- Raw video shot by Seattle Times of the aftermath of that big mudslide on Whidbey Island early Friday morning April 3,2009. Following two days of ground pounding rainstorms a large mud slide occurred on South Whidbey Island in the early morning hours just a short distance from the Clinton ferry landing.
Island County officials say the mudslide cut off a portion of Glendale Road and caused the voluntary evacuation of some ten homes in the Glendale community about 3 am.
Early reports indicated a beaver dam on the local creek up above the homes gave way creating a flash flood event that brought with it tons of water, mud, trees, rocks, shrubs and other debris sailing into homes, yards and driveways in the area leaving mud two to three feet deep in places. Some homes had water and mud inside as well as out.
Island County public works employees arrived on scene and attempted pump water from the overflowing creek around Glendale Road to prevent it from washing out but to no avail. A large chunk of Glendale Road washed away.
Residents first noticed water was backing up through culverts early Friday morning about 2am. No injuries were immediately reported due to the slide. Click READ MORE to bring up video player. Video courtesy Seattle Times.
