The man had it in storage, it wasnt being used and from what we can gather it was locked away. Yet the judge sent him in for five years. He legally owned it in the US
Criminals, lets face it the lorry driver who killed six people on the M6 got just three years. This man has done nothing apart from owning a gun, and one that wasnt even with him It was in storage.
Under a Libertarian government he would be released and given back his gun.
Ive not done much today and Im not blogging about Jade's Wedding so I shall be back with your daily dose of politics very soon.

Already a pound today buys what a penny or a ha penny did in Victorian times, and remember that there were 240 pennies to the pound back then, So an income of four pounds a week in Victorian times was equivalent to a salary of 70000 now.

Now the question here is, She has a marginal 2500 majority or thereabouts, Just what does she think she is doing? Ticking the boxes and saying that Im doing alright Jack isnt ok. You see if she had accepted her grace and favour apartment, she wouldnt get a second home allowance.
Therefore we think it is a scam, Lets face it her husband must hate being at home doing the house husband stuff, hes too busy writing to the local paper. He is probably a robust social, and she a sensitive individual. ( Matrix Psychology)
So Jacqui How do you like the snooping neighbours now? You were the ones who said we should all look out for each other.

A lot of fun was had shooting pictures of New Scotland Yard and of the other people there, Old Holborn and Dick Puddlecote turned up, as did the press , the six o' clock news and the Beeb.
I was there but didnt get photographed except by the mainstream media, as you can see in the post immediately previous to this.
You will note that there are CCTV cameras covering this whole area so we were being watched carefully and recorded whilst we were out there.
I bet you there are a team of officers looking through everyone
I went to the facebook event, In fact if you are special and want a prize and were not there, if you can spot where I am in this photo then you shall win the competition and I can give you your prize. The prize is a photo portrait taken by me.
I will be posting my own photos later but this is the one on the BBC news website

And I will pledge with mine;
Or leave a kiss but in the cup
And I'll not look for wine.
The thirst that from the soul doth rise 5
Doth ask a drink divine;
But might I of Jove's nectar sup,
I would not change for thine.
I sent thee late a rosy wreath,
Not so much honouring thee 10
As giving it a hope that there
It could not wither'd be;
But thou thereon didst only breathe,
And sent'st it back to me;
Since when it grows, and smells, I swear, 15
Not of itself but thee!
Ben Jonson 1573–1637

Whilst I am staying at my parents, my father listens to Larry King on CNN.
Today they were discussing the fact that Sarah Palin will give everyone who presents a severed foreleg of an Alaskan Wolf $150. I frankly find this sick and disturbing.
Who the hell is Sarah Palin to commit genocide or even wolficide on this scale?
People are taking to planes and shooting these magnificent beasts for thirty pieces of silver ie $150 and she is complicit in this.
At a time when the big beasts of this earth are almost extinct she is the cause of more extinction
The wolves are necessary predators, Unfortunately she makes it clear that she would have been a very bad choice of vice president and she truly is a rottweiler with lipstick on.
This woman has to be stopped

Three minutes went by and a middle aged man noticed there was musician playing. He slowed his pace and stopped for a few seconds and then hurried up to meet his schedule.
A minute later, the violinist received his first dollar tip: a woman threw the money in the till and without stopping continued to walk.
A few minutes later, someone leaned against the wall to listen to him, but the man looked at his watch and started to walk again. Clearly he was late for work.
The one who paid the most attention was a 3 year old boy. His mother tagged him along, hurried but the kid stopped to look at the violinist. Finally the mother pushed hard and the child continued to walk turning his head all the time. This action was repeated by several other children. All the parents, without exception, forced them to move on.
In the 45 minutes the musician played, only 6 people stopped and stayed for a while. About 20 gave him money but continued to walk their normal pace. He collected $32. When he finished playing and silence took over, no one noticed it. No one applauded, nor was there any recognition.
No one knew this but the violinist was Joshua Bell, one of the best musicians in the world. He played one of the most intricate pieces ever written with a violin worth 3.5 million dollars.
Two days before his playing in the subway, Joshua Bell sold out at a theater in Boston and the seats average $100.
Joshua Bell playing incognito in the metro station was organized by the Washington Post as part of an social experiment about perception, taste and priorities of people. The outlines were: in a commonplace environment at an inappropriate hour: Do we perceive beauty? Do we stop to appreciate it? Do we recognize the talent in an unexpected context?
One of the possible conclusions from this experience could be:
If we do not have a moment to stop and listen to one of the best musicians in the world playing the best music ever written, how many other things are we missing?

Honestly does he really think he can compare himself to a Master artist
The man is beyond delusional.
This just sums up how out of touch the big Flounder is.
