Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

How to write to the editor without throwing up.

Refuting The Anti-Gun Newspaper Article by Chris Christian.

Every firearms owner has, at one time or another, read a newspaper article, or opinion column, or Editorial, or Letter To The Editor, that just made their blood boil because it just wasn’t true.

“HOW CAN THEY GET AWAY WITH THAT!!!!” we all scream. Well, there’s a simple reason they can get away with that, and that’s because they own the ink and paper. And, once in print, many accept their cr*p as fact. In many cases, the Mainstream Media (MSM) they could care less whether or not the printed material is factually correct as long as it fits their liberal template, and the private ownership of guns is not high on their list of favorites. Expect them to be anti-gun.

You can yell, scream, beat the dog, use the paper to wrap fish or line the bird cage, get onto a Forum and rant (I call that “preaching to the choir”), or just stew about it. Or, you can respond via a Letter To The Editor.

And no, firebombing the editor’s car is not an option….legal or otherwise. 🙂

A quick do-it-yourself Global Warming experiment.

Turn Oven on and set to 400 degrees. Place 2 glasses with water inside oven. Leave one glass of water alone and add 2 alka-seltzers to the other. Close oven.
According to the Global Warming defenders, after a couple of hours you should have a snowstorm inside your oven.

I must be doing something wrong. The only thing I keep getting is a damn mess inside the oven. But I will follow the precepts of the Grand Pope Of Global Doom, His Excellency  Al Gore and keep repeating the experiment till I get a slurpee.

Living Death has a particular taste.

According to Larry Correia’s latest: Wall of Flame Challenge.

This pepper laughs at jalapenos. This pepper makes the habenero it’s bitch. This pepper has no name, and the ancient Middianites who discovered it referred to it only as – TERRIBLE SHRIEKING DOOM – before it destroyed their entire civilization. This pepper exists in multiple quantum dimensions at one time. This pepper divides by zero.

Have you watched the Winter Olympics? Huh, huh, huh?

Oh hell NO! I tuned three times (two by accident) and that was it. The first time I saw some guy wearing more make up than a hooker on a Saturday night and call me old fashioned but Maybelline is not something that pops up immediately when somebody mentions the Olympics. The second time I swear I saw Jeff Spicoli about to go down some slope on a over sized tongue depressor. The third time I saw the the same made-up guy with even  more make up an wearing enough sequins & feathers as to overthrow Liberace from his Las Vegas Museum.

When I was a kid, I had a chance to read about the real Olympics. Not the summer games but the games as played among the kingdoms in Greece and I wouldn’t mind seeing a couple of bouts of that old style Olympic boxing. Instead of soft cushy gloves and head protection, the fighters wore gloves reinforced with metal (mostly lead), there were no 3 minute rounds and the fight was decided when either somebody called it quits or died.

And before some woman accuses me of being insensitive, I would like to point out that many athlete in the old times wore no uniform… hell didn’t wear much of anything. The Olympics back then were quite popular with the female population.

So, I’ll be rooting for this Canadian team:

Canadian Biathlon team
Canadian Biathlon team

Call me Oinker and fed me slop… I don’t care. Women should petition for Old Style Olympics.

Guns In National Parks is such a bad idea because….

According to the L.A. Times, the law allowing citizens concealed is bad because:

Opponents say the law ratchets up the potential for violence in parks, where for seven consecutive years rangers have been the most assaulted federal law enforcement officers, according to data compiled by the park service.

And

There were 1,844 weapons-related offenses reported in national parks last year.

Wait one minute. So Federal Agents have been regularly getting their butts kicked, assaulted and what-nots so it makes sense that the common citizen should be disarmed so we can get our butts kicked also? And not counting that guns were already in National Parks, just in the hands of those willing to break the law, you know? CRIMINALS.

Seriously people. If you wanna make a case, use logic before opening mouth.
