Don’t Wait for Barack Obama to Ban Your Guns – Register to Vote Today!

Barack Obama Has Supported:

A Total Ban on Handguns
A Ban on the Sale or Transfer of All Semi-Auto Firearms
A Ban on Right-to-Carry Permits
A Ban on Firearms Kept in the Home
And More —

“So it’s not surprising then that they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them….”
— Barack Obama, April 2, 2008
Barack Obama has made it clear – he believes gun owners are dangerous and that guns should be banned. If he is elected President, he could name new Supreme Court Justices who will try to overturn the recent court decision and strip our rights away.

Protect your rights. Protecting your rights has never been more important.

Michael Medved: A Presidential Race to Watch
Fred Thompson’s imminent entry into the presidential race is good news for the GOP and for the country—not just because it provides another plausible conservative alternative, but because it greatly increases the likelihood of an “open convention” for the first time in 56 years.

WeatherBrains 71: “Look Down”

June 4th, 2007

WeatherBrains Episode 71 is now online (June 4, 2007) The netcast for people who love weather.

In this week’s episode:

V. WeatherBrains Extra: Low Down Radar … Newer doesn’t necessarily meanCASA bigger and more powerful. In fact, the next generation of weather radar–currently being field tested in Oklahoma, with more tests planned for Texas and Puerto Rico–is actually smaller and less powerful than present day systems. But what it lacks in power and size may be more than made up for by what it lets us see. David Black talks with “Professor Chandra” of Colorado State University about CASA;

2007 Hurricane season off and running: Are coastal residents ready for a major storm this year? We weigh in with some observations;

Politics and weather: J.B. Elliott confesses to being a weather troublemaker during his tenure at the National Weather Service … and the global warming comment that got NASA Administrator Michael Griffin in hot water;

WeatherBrains 101: What in the world is a wet bulb temperature? Join us as Professor Peters explains;

This Week In Weather History: Legend had it that residents in Topeka, Kansas were safe from tornadoes. But in 1966, they learned a hard lesson. And during this week in 1953, New England residents were stunned by a weather event they thought they’d never have to worry about. Join Bill Murray as we look into these and other historical weather highlights

NATO – Noble Mariner Program comes to Gothenburg.

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , , , , , , , , — entry @ 20:10PM

NATO – Noble Mariner Program comes to Gothenburg.

Göteborgs-Posten – Göteborg – Hamnar stängs inför Nato-besöket
“Hamnar stängs inför Nato-besöket
Från midnatt till fredagen skärps säkerheten i Frihamnen och Lundbyhamnen. Det sker inför ankomsten av en stor marin Nato-styrka till Göteborg nästa vecka.
KARTOR: Skandiahamnen
Noble Mariner är en övning för medlemmar av försvarsalliansen Nato och så kallade partnerskapsländer som Sverige. Övningen, som återkommer årligen, börjar den 14 maj och pågår till den 24 maj i södra Östersjön.
Ett 80-tal fartyg med över 17 000 sjömän från 17 länder är med. Den svenska marinens bidrag är två korvetter, två minröjningsfartyg och en ubåt.
En sista planeringskonferens inför övningen genomförs i Göteborg 10-13 maj. Hit kommer 37 fartyg och cirka 6 500 sjömän, med början på onsdag.
Det är vid de platser som fartygen kommer att lägga till eller ankra som nu förklaras som skyddsobjekt. Det innebär att “objekten” kommer att bevakas och att inga obehöriga har tillträde.
De områden som berörs är Frihamnen och Lundbyhamnen och västra Skandiahamnen i Göteborg samt en del av Danafjorden. Restriktionerna gäller följande tider:
o Frihamnen/Lundbyhamnen: 4 maj klockan 00.00 till och med den 14 maj klockan 20.00.
o Västra delen av Skandiahamnen: 8 maj klockan 08.00 till och med den 14 maj klockan 12.00.
o Del av Danafjorden: 8 maj klockan 08.00 till och med den 14 maj klockan 20.00.
För att inte hindra nödvändiga civila transporter till och från Göteborgs hamn tillåts fri passage för fartyg i Torshamnsleden. Det sker i anslutning till skyddsområdets sydöstra del.
Fartyg som ska till och från farlederna norr om Fotö och öster om Hönö kan passera genom en öppen korridor i områdets sydvästra del.
Efter samverkan mellan Sjöfartsverket och Marinbasen kan fartyg vid behov få utnyttja ankarplats inom det skyddade området.
Varje år genomförs omkring 20 örlogsbesök i Sverige, enligt marinen. De flesta sker i Göteborg. Detta bli dock den största sammandragningen av utländska örlogsfartyg och sjömän på länge. Säkerhetsarrangemangen är stora.
Ulf Öberg är marinens informationsansvarige:
– NÃ¥got enstaka fartyg kommer pÃ¥ onsdag, merparten nästa torsdag. 20-25 kommer att ligga i Skandiahamnen.
Ett av dessa är det brittiska hangarfartyget HMS Ark Royal, som deltog i Irakkriget år 2003.
Det är tveksamt om det blir några speciella arrangemang som trots allt gör det möjligt för intresserade att få se fartygen från insidan.
– Öppenhet är väldigt viktigt. Men det blir sannolikt inga visningar ombord, säger Ulf Öberg.
Örlogsbesöket sammanfaller med Göteborgsvarvet nästa lördag. Det har har delvis påverkat sträckningen av den drygt 21 kilometer banan vid de berörda hamnområdena.
