Fear factor

Stock up on bottled water and 7.62mm ammu- nition, kids; the U.N. is coming after Our Redbirds! And the ice cream stands will only offer Red Straw- berry, and they'll be out of that too!

It's a fairly normal day at Fox: Obama's a failure, crocodiles are eating schoolgirls, all Democrats are hypocrites and Bill Ayers can run, but he can't hide. But don't take your eye off the big picture: The Senate's getting ready to hand over our national patrimony to the focus of evil in the modern world United Nations!

Let's let the Heritage Foundation sum it up in everybody's favorite word of the month:

"The whole theory of the treaty is that the world's oceans and everything below them are the common heritage of mankind," said Groves. "Very socialist."

Darn those pesky international treaties! Anyway, think twice about whether you really want Colonel Qadhafi teaching your kids about the infield fly rule, then call your senators and tell 'em to Just Say No to undersea socialism.

Hah - US under UN control was a favorite topic with the black helicopter crowd back during the Clinton era.

And you read it here first: the black helicopters will soon resume their flights! Let's see if this panic produces a book as truly awful as "The Turner Diaries."

hah! Everyone knows that "the world's oceans and everything below them" belong to the US of A!

And what's with this European 7.62mm ammo? 30.06 was good enough for George Washington and it's good enough for me.

See, but if you standardize on 7.62, you can use all the ammunition from the Cuban and Nicaraguan paratroopers the high school football team captured! (I bring this up because Strayhorn probably remembers the copydesk pre-work field trip to see "Red Dawn"-- the weekend Hurricane Diana hit town, I think).

But that's a very good point about George Washington.

Heh - 7.62 NATO is nominal at .308 while the Russkie 7.62 is .311 - and if you really want to indulge in geekery and/or impress that copy desk cutie from Janes, just let drop that .308 Winchester is drawn to fit chambers that are .013 shorter than 7.62 NATO.
