It never troubles a wolf how many the sheep be!

9 Sept 20 “You must travel through those woods again and again, and you must be lucky to avoid the wolf every time. But the wolf, the wolf only needs enough luck to find you once!” Emily Carroll Bodies of a missing CA couple were found last weekend at bottom of well near El Socorrito in the western Mexican […]

“‘New’ Morality”

8 Sept 20 “A knife may not be a longsword, but its edge will cut you all the same.” Ed McDonald British police arrested a single, male suspect yesterday in connection with Sunday’s knife attacks in the “nightlife district” in the English city of Birmingham. Seven victims seriously injured. One fatality. Chief Superintendent Steve Graham of West Midlands Police instantly […]

No More Right to Self-Defense!

1 Sept 20 “This is not a dictatorship! We are never going to use force, because we belong to the people. Moreover, the day that the people do not want us, we shall leave. As soon as possible I will take rifles off the streets. There are no more enemies! There is no longer anything to fight against!” Fidel Castro in […]

Bolshevik Brilliance!

27 Aug 20 “I won’t insult your intelligence by suggesting that you really believe what you just said.” William F Buckley Jr From a friend and student in Minneapolis, MN: “Yesterday afternoon, Minneapolis Commissar Frey and his ‘Gang of Aging Bolsheviks’ held a press conference to report on their progress to ‘reform’ police use of force. As with Sleepy Joe, […]

Looking for Trouble?

27 Aug 20 “No ‘trouble’ ever got fixed late at night! Midnight is for regrets.” Holly Black Looking for Trouble! As we’re seeing in WI, when a person arms himself, and then goes out looking for trouble, he will (belatedly) discover that our Criminal Justice System has scant sympathy for him, nor for his personal decisions! When an armed person goes […]

“Former” Voters!

26 Aug 20 Democrats are suddenly finding themselves on the wrong side of the gun issue! At the recent (virtual) DNC Political Convention, radical left Democrats (is there another kind?) grabbed the microphone and endlessly, vehemently denounced our Constitution’s Second Amendment. They called for the omnibus federal reversal of state concealed-carry laws! They called for the elimination of private […]

Short Interval!

24 Aug 20 Time between “incident” and riot(s) is getting shorter! Social media and smartphone video has reduced this interval to just about zero! Observations: 1) Because of the short “incident-to-riot” interval, a citizen could open his office or shop in the morning, only to look-out a few minutes later to find a violent, destructive riot at his doorstep! 2) […]

Free Stuff!

20 Aug 20 “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.” Churchill Free stuff? DNC proponents of socialism naively believe that, under a socialist/Communist government, capitalists and capitalism (whom they hate with a vile passion), when forever eliminated, will somehow magically continue to […]

Traitors!

18 Aug 20 “A nation can survive its fools, even the ambitious, but it cannot survive treason” Cicero We Americans were always told to believe that both political parties were made-up of good people who cared about this country, whose motivations were always respectable, but who disagreed on the best way to administer national policy. Unhappily, most of us […]

“Moderate”

17 Nov 20 She is going to “get us!” “Moderate” Kamala? “Look-out if you supported him (DJT)… because we are coming for you next! You will feel the vengeance of a nation” She said that at a fundraiser in April of this year! She’s “coming for us?” Sounds like gulags and gas-chambers to me! “Revenge is a confession of pain” Roman Proverb /John

“Possibles”

13 Aug 20 Possible? “There are two things we should always be: 1) Raw 2) Ready When you are raw, you are always ready, and when you are ready you usually realize that you are raw. Waiting for ‘perfection’ is not an answer. One cannot say, ‘I will be ready when I am perfect,’ because then you will never be ready. Rather, one […]

No Relief!

10 Aug 20 “You’ve no respect You see it You grab it You’ve got yourself a very bad habit!” From “Trip, stumble, and Fall”, written by John Phillips and sung by his group, The Mamas and the Papas, in 1966 Continuing Chaos: Chicago’s violent (including multiple shootings, hundreds of rounds launched) rioting and looting in a fashionable area last […]

Vanity!

5 Aug 20 “Jesus reserved his harshest condemnation for hypocrites, especially pious ones!” Philip Yancey Listening to the evening news today, I see Democrats, and those who unfailingly choose to speak on their behalf (the liberal media), are in continuous, and ever-sanctimonious, denial about the exponentially-worsening lawlessness and anarchy that currently grips virtually every American city where […]

Liberal Fools!

3 Aug 20 Unintended consequences? Yesterday, the Minneapolis “Police Dept,” apparently with a straight face, emailed residents advising of them that it is their solemn civic duty to be “good victims!” (They’re saying this to ascendants of Vikings!) Residents are advised to never offer any resistance to violent criminals and to give-in to all their demands immediately. Presumably, that extends […]

1 Aug 20 “Show me the man, and I’ll show you the crime.” Lavrentiy Beria, Head of Stalin’s NKVD, 1938-1953 Beria was architect of the infamous Katyn Massacre in the spring of 1940, which saw in excess of 20k captured Polish Army officers, police, and intelligentsia systematically murdered and quickly buried in mass trenches. In February of 1945, when […]

TSA “Refines” Rules!

30 July 20 TSA “refines” rules for transport of guns in checked baggage on domestic commercial flights: As of this month, TSA is now requiring that all guns within hard or soft checked baggage be contained within aseparate, hard, locked case. The separate hard case containing the guns(s) themselves must be locked, and when locked, not easily pried […]

The Venezuela Model

28 July 20 “I was thoroughly terrified, not so much fearing death as the treachery of my own kind.” Cicero “Relinquish?” How about “grab,” “steal,” seize,” “take” Sleepy Joe’s plan to: “Create an effective program to ensure individuals who become prohibited from possessing firearms relinquish their weapons.” “Biden will direct the FBI and ATF to outline a model ‘relinquishment process,’ enact […]

How do you do, Mr Mayor?

23 July 20 “Res ipsa loquitur,” Loosely translated: “The thing speaks for itself. It is self-evident.” Yes, how do you like it, Mr Mayor? Portland, OR’s Democrat mayor went out last night to greet his your very own beloved Marxist mob, as they were enthusiastically destroying his formally-beautiful city, for the 55th day in a […]

Sleazy Cowards, Spineless Worms!

22 July 20 “Stand up to hypocrisy. When you don’t, hypocrites will teach! Stand up to ignorance. When you don’t, the ignorant will run free to spread ignorance like a disease! Stand up for truth. When you don’t, then there is no truth to your existence!” Suzy Kassem Sleazy cowards and spineless worms! This week, […]

DTI 19

21 July 20 DTI 19 Paper Targets: A number of years ago, I was asked by a major printer of paper targets which of their designs I liked best for “qualification and testing” I indicate I didn’t like any of them! So, I was invited to design my own, and in conjunction with a close […]
