There are two unrealated trends in the election that perfectly describe the angst surrounding Barack Hussein Obama. The first trend is the AIM Surplus website http://www.aimsurplus.com/ . AIM Surplus is a small warehouse in an industrial park in Middletown, Ohio that primarily sells surplus guns and ammo. I bought a 1942 Russian Mosin-Nagant battle rifle and two "spam" cans of surplus ammo from them. We joke that the reason I'm so well-armed is the coming "Twinkie Zombie Apocalypse" ("They will never get me! They will never get my Twinkies!"). Now if you go to the AIM site, you will find the following weapons are sold out: Chinese Type 53 carbine Russian Mosin-Nagant 91/30 "Hexhead" rifle Russian Mosin-Nagant 91/30 rifle (wartime manufacture) Russian Model 1944 carbine Yugoslav M57 Pistol, "Tokarev" The Mosin is the least expensive military surplus military rifle currently for sale. A functional military battle rifle that is capable of "reaching out and touching someone" at 700 yards (if you can shoot that well) costs about $90, and 440 rounds of surplus Soviet bloc ammo is about $70. The old Soviet surplus arms are flying off the shelves. AIM Surplus cannot keep them in stock. The second Obama indicator is the binder "scandal." As governor Mitt Romney wanted to include women in the governance of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. His administration organized the resumes into binders, undoubtedly purchased from Staples, for easy reference. Feminist groups are now pitching a fit about "binders." They call the use of binders "demeaning and sexist." Unlike tampajeff and my wife I am not a huge Star Trek fan. But William Shatner, the actor who played Captain Kirk, famously told a group of trekkies, "Get a life!" The feminists should listen to Shatner. Greta Van Susteren, the Fox News talking head, asked, "How stupid do they think we (women) are?" Four dead in Benghazi, Libya. I remember well "four dead in Ohio," the 1970 Kent State massacre. There were riots and burnings all over the country because of the "murders." But when Republicans dare point out that there is at the very least a massive intelligence failure concerning Benghazi, the Admnistration accuses the Republicans of "politicizing the tragedy." And then Obama goes onto the television show of record, the final word of Jon Stewart, and calls the four deaths "not optimal." The mother of Ambassador Stevens replied, "My son is not very optimal. He is very dead." This is the hype surrounding the Obama campaign.
