    Want to work for the new administration? Here's the Questionairre

    Those seeking top posts in the Obama administration must fill out an extensive — some say invasive — application:

    http://graphics8.nytimes.com/package...stionnaire.pdf

    Note question #59:

    Do you or any members of your immediate familyown a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.
    And my favorite, #63:

    Please provide any other information, including information about other members of your family, that could suggest a conflict of interest or be a possible source of embarassment to you, your family, or the President-Elect.
    Well, there is my relationship with this forum, which I consider "family".

    Question 59 is very typical of rabid antigunners.

    To them, that would seem like a perfectly logical question.

    Anyone with a clue, though, would tell them to stick it or refuse to answer it.

    whether IT has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.
    Even here he blames the gun.

    And soon he'll wonder why he can't get top talent.
    This is considered the most intrusive questionairre ever put out by a President Elect.

    This is a joke right?
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    #59; ....... If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed?

    'Registrations' on firearms don't 'lapse'. (Maybe in certain cases in places like D.C. I don't know there.)

    Only handguns are 'registered', sometimes called a 'Safety Inspection'.

    It would figure they don't have their story right.

    Since I'm a Life Member of the NRA and the wife is an Annual Member, I guess I wouldn't make it past question 16. That would make 59 irrelevant I guess.

    Oh well I didn't want a job where I was overpaid and under worked anyways!

    No, this is for real. The report is also on CNN.

    Is this Obama's way of reaching out to all Americans? Having an inclusive adminstration? He wants to talk about our associations and potential embarrassment to him? Provide complete information on my and my family members guns? Outrageous!!!

    Especially since he won't even release his own background info., like birth certificate or college transcripts.

    I guess what's good for the is not good for the the gander.

    Don't know why anyone would want to work for him anyways. Don't we get more benefits for being unemployed?

    Not That I am A Potental Worker Bee Here

    There is another story here

    Question #59:

    Do you or any members of your immediate familyown a gun? If so, provide complete ownership and registration information. Has the registration ever lapsed? Please also describe how and by whom it is used and whether it has been the cause of any personal injuries or property damage.
    You can see that BHO/his staff have no frame of reference outside of Chicago. How is somebody from Florida or Pennsylvania - to name the states I know well - answer this part of this question?

    These clowns have no idea what is involved in the acquistion and use of firearms as part of a legal lifestyle. That is the real problem with BHO - he may not be a banner cut out of the cloth of Chuckie or Sara or Ms. McCarthy - but he has no personal experience with firearms in any direct and/or legal way, as far as I can see. Growing up in Hawaii, going to school in Bloombergville and Boston, and living essentially your entire adult life in the fantasy land of King Richard of Daley gives you no sense of what is involved.
