Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

Socialist Andrew Cuomo wants to ban guns.
Communist Bill De Blasio wants to arrest anyone who's ever owned a gun.
By voting for these two morons the citizens of New York have shown their disdain for the Second Amendment.
So when Remington needed to choose a state in which to create 2,000 jobs, they didn't choose New York.
Because in Alabama, Freedom still means something.
"High level sources have informed Yellowhammer News that Remington, one of the world's largest gun manufacturers, will on Monday join Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley in announcing that they are bringing over 2,000 jobs to Alabama. The company is viewing the move into Alabama as an expansion, but it will likely impact their Ilion, NY plant as well. The New York facility currently employs around 1,200 people. It is expected to stay open, but with a reduced workforce."
Apparently New York didn't learn from Colorado's mistake.
"I make this announcement with mixed emotions," Phillip Howe, president and CEO of HiViz, said in a statement. "Colorado is a beautiful state with great people, but we cannot in clear conscience support with our taxes a state that has proven through recent legislation a willingness to infringe upon the constitutional rights of our customer base."
Alas, "Recall Cuomo" is a non-starter. So Remington voted with their feet.
And they join a proud tradition of freedom-loving Americans thumbing their noses at socialism.
Big Labor suffered a "devastating defeat" Friday when workers at a Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga voted against joining the UAW.
Even better, it was a kick in the nuts to Dear Leader.
President Barack Obama on Friday waded into a high-stakes union vote at Volkswagen AG's plant in Tennessee, accusing Republican politicians who oppose unionization of being more concerned about German shareholders than U.S. workers.
That's funny. The only folks voting here are average Americans, and they rejected the Democratic Party's line.
The loss is an especially stinging blow for U.A.W. because Volkswagen did not even oppose the unionization drive. The union's defeat — in what was one of the most closely watched unionization votes in decades — is expected to slow, perhaps stymie, the union's long-term plans to organize other auto plants in the South. . . .
Standing outside the Volkswagen plant, Mike Jarvis, a three-year employee who works on the finishing line, said the majority had voted against U.A.W. because they were persuaded the union had hurt Detroit's automakers.
Unions are a cancer on America.
As are the anti-liberty policies of blue state politicians like Andrew Cuomo.
Fortunately we still have the ability to self-correct, and route around the
problem. Good jobs are leaving the socialist enclaves. And any taint of the
progressive stench is unwelcome where freedom reigns supreme.
