Special Guest Photography from Richard Baehr: Another Great Sign from Gulf of Maine Gunsmithing!

(please click to enlarge all photos!)

My good friend Richard Baehr over at The American Thinker just sent me this short video clip below from his travels in Maine.  Gulf of Maine Gunsmithing in Raymond, Maine sure puts up some great signs!  I grabbed the above still from the video for better clarity.  
It reads: 

Here below are three more outstanding signs from last year that Richard photographed and sent to me.

Big thanks to Richard Baehr!  I love them.  Please keep 'em coming.

More Passing Shots Maine: God Bless Our Troops

 (click to enlarge)
There's so much I love about Deer Isle, Maine.  The quiet, rugged beauty, the friendly people and just about every house you see has a bright, beautiful American flag proudly waving in front. 

Many have tall flag poles on their front lawns flying the stars and stripes.  This house had every branch of the U.S. Armed Forces represented.

Ah! The wind isn't always a photographer's friend!

Passing Shot from Maine: Working People Vote Republican

(click to enlarge)
With almost three months to go until November, whatever you do, even if you are not thrilled with Romney and you have to hold your nose before you press the lever in the voting booth, please do not sit out this election. Barry has to go!

Manhattan Mini Storage Takes on Bloomberg's Soda War

(click to enlarge photos)
Saw this today on the subway.  
Could it be that the Manhattan Mini Storage ads have taken up an issue that I actually agree with?

Meanwhile on the same subway car, the sodaphobic Nanny State Mayor Bloomie takes aim square at New Yorker's freedoms.

Vacation Time!

It's summer, it's hot and it's time to head up to the Maine Coast for some fresh air, and peace and quiet.
If this isn't God's country, I don't know what is.

Looking forward to a little time away from the hot city.  Nothing beats lobster right out of the bay, with melted butter, corn, and ice cold beer by the water.

Or have a lobster roll, or two!

Political Street Art: The Clowning Around with Chavez Edition

(click to enlarge!)
I came across this street art today featuring Barry Hussein Obama's best bud, Hugo Chavez.  The Venezuelan dictator plays footsie with Ahmadinejad and agents of Hezbollah have been sighted in Mexico

The Undocumented President of the United States continues with his logic-defying analysis of the situation, "The truth is that we're always concerned about Iran engaging in destabilizing activity around the globe."
Meanwhile Barry the Traitor rips a page straight from the playbook of Chavez, by stepping up with government handouts before the election.

He shoots!  He scores!

Political Street Art: The Communist in New York City Edition

 (Click to enlarge!)

Spotted this silly item this morning in my neighborhood this morning.  Apparently someone is in a totalitarian state of mind.

Personally, I like my New York Commie-free.

Happy Independence Day!

July 4, 1776

On June 7, 1776, Richard Henry Lee of Virginia in the Second Continental Congress, at Philadelphia, offered the following resolution:
"Resolved, That these united colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent states; that they are absolved from allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between t hem and the state of Great Britain is, and of right ought to be, totally dissolved."
After a debate lasting several days, this resolution was laid on the table, and a committee of five was elected to get up a formal declaration which would be submitted to the Congress when the Lee resolution would again be taken up.  The five were, in order of their election, Thomas Jefferson, Roger Sherman, Robert Livingston, Benjamin Franklin and John Adams.

Thomas Jefferson was then a little past thirty-three years of age.  His ability as a thinker and a writer was  well-known.  The committee met immediately after appointment.  Jefferson suggested that Adams should draw up the Declaration.  Adams objected, saying: "You can write ten times better than I can."  The others agreed that Jefferson ought to make the first draft, and he consented.

At some time in the following three weeks, Jefferson wrote the paper.  We are led to believe he did it at one sitting, or one day, or night.

Many years later he remarked: "Whether I had gathered my ideas from reading or reflection, I do not know.  I only know that I turned to neither book nor pamphlet while writing it."  The original draft in Jefferson's handwriting is preserved at Washington.  It is written upon four large sheets--about foolscap size.

Obama Street Art: The "Laff" Edition

(click to enlarge all photos)
I came across this interesting bit of street art today in my neighborhood.

It's worth noting that around here I don't see any pro-Obama posters much less the flat-out Obama worship displayed in endless street art like there was back in 2008.  So this is pretty much it.
Oh, it's Dear Leader alright with that great big phony smile.

But it's definitely not the most flattering image and then there's the 'laff' part.  Only who's laughing?  Certainly not the American people.

What was funny was the guy standing there watching me take the photos.  I asked him what he thought of it and he told me he thought it was Ronald Reagan.
