The “gun enthusiasts” have been running around claiming that “the government” “wants to take away all of our guns!” as well as trying to divert attention away from the reasoned, serious discussion of the best way to “ensure domestic tranquility” and “provide for the common defense” (both from the Preamble to The Constitution and, thus, the very purpose of it, not an afterthought).…

If you take this assignment.......

Those of you who are old enough to remember the TV Show from the 1960"s staring Peter Graves- Mission Impossible will remember that every show began with the following phrase:

Good morning, Mr. Phelps..... Your mission, Jim, should you decide to accept it, is to make XXXXXXXXXX. As always, should you or any of your IM Force be caught or killed, the secretary will disavow any knowledge of your actions. This tape will self-destruct in five seconds. Good luck,…
