Since the "New Look" change mid 2011 - we are still thirsty for feedback but sadly get very little. Can we ask for one or two regular visitors to volunteer to regularly report, mentioning any link or display problems, and Email us with info. Some errors can be hard to track down and so outside help is most useful.

"Gun of the week" has been running for some time - let’s hear from you. Like - not like? Any other suggestions?

Thank you - JPFO Webmaster.

Alerts & "Bounces"
Points to note with the JPFO alert emails.

Alerts can sometimes bounce!

Note - (July 2011) We notice sometimes that out of the thousands of alerts sent out, there can be rather high numbers of "bounces" - on checking with our provider it would seem that now and again an ISP makes some change to their email settings and that can result in non-delivery to those using that ISP.

If it happens to be something like Hotmail, Yahoo or even gmail - then many can be affected temporarily. For those who miss out on one of our sendings, we apologize, but the provider does try to stay ahead of things when they can by making changes in their own settings to reflect ISP changes and so control the bounces, which we like to see as zero!

If in doubt, please check the alerts archive to make sure you have not missed anything. Also, if you get alerts do please open them!

Chris, Webmaster.

What's Wrong With This Picture?

Proponents of “gun control” are screaming bloody murder over Democratic New York Governor David Paterson’s appointment of little known Kirsten Gillibrand to replace Hillary Clinton in the United States Senate.

Now get this: The NRA gives Democrat Congresswoman Gillibrand an “A” for her anti “gun control” stances. This is weird.

Why? Because Governor Paterson has been given an “F” for his “gun control” stances by the same group.

Additionally, insiders report that New York Senator Charles Schumer, of all people, was Gillibrand’s staunchest advocate! Weird upon weird, I say.

In case you didn’t know, Senator Charles Schumer is arguably the most notorious (reviled?) anti gun ownership advocate in the history of American politics, and is ranked at least an “F triple minus“ by every pro gun ownership organization.

So how do you explain Schumer’s advocacy of Gillibrand to Paterson? Seriously, what the heck is going on here?

Did Chuck Schumer get an AR-15 for his birthday, go shooting, and see the error of his ways? Is he planning to turn on (rhetorically) his fellow anti gunners like Dianne Feinstein, Barbara Boxer, and that screeching dingbat Carolyn McCarthy? Nah, something tells me that isn’t what’s going on.

Are Paterson and Schumer sending some sort subtle/not-so-subtle message to President Obama? Does Paterson have some hidden beef with Obama? Does Schumer have some beef with Obama that goes back to the way Madam Clinton was treated during the primaries? After all, Chuck would have been way at the front of the appointments line with a President Hillary. We should never forget that politics is mostly gutter fighting, deceit, and revenge.

And therefore, pro gun activists should not be an all too trusting bunch when it comes to politicians. We’ve been betrayed for decades by people we thought we could count on, recently G.W. Bush and John McCain amongst others.

And now, from out of the woods of upstate New York comes this attractive, blonde, somewhat Sarah Palinesque, gun rights activist to apparently carry our banner into the dragon’s lair? Sorry, but you can color me suspicious.

However, President Obama’s plate is wriggling with immediate, high priority, conundrums. He faces two losing (and socially unpopular) military campaigns in Afghanistan and Iraq. Staring him in the face is a transportation infrastructure falling to pieces, a health care system tattering in the breeze, the somber threat of another 9-11, twenty million illegal aliens ensconced within our borders, a tanking global economy, and an American dollar that is on the ropes.

Could it be that the red herring wavers of “gun control” simply won’t be able to get his ear right now? Is “gun control” maybe (as he has indirectly implied) going to be a non-issue for his first term? Do you believe in the tooth fairy?

And now there is Democrat chatter of Gillibrand doing a “180” on her pro gun stances. Is this a lie to calm the victim disarmament advocates in Liberalville … or is it the truth, and part of a bigger scheme?

Ayn Rand wrote a famous novel titled “Atlas Shrugged”. A memorable line in the book is: “Who is John Galt?” (The answer to the question pays off in the story.)

I would paraphrase Ms. Rand’s question: “Who is Kirsten Gillibrand?” To one degree or another, the answer to that question will pay off in our lives. And pretty soon. You can bet on that.
