Oh THIS is a shock...

I know this has no political significance, but...

Lance Bass is gay.

I told you so.

I told you so, I told you so, I told you so.

Pure Hysteria

The MSM is at it again. Someone shoots at a car and they are automatically a sniper. This is just utter lunacy. Do they do any research before they start slinging around their frenzied conclusions?

Obviously not. They're still calling Charles McCoy Jr. (Ohio, 2003) a sniper, even though he was using a friggin pistol. Does that matter to the MSM? No. He shot at someone from farther than 25 yards, and the victim didn't see him, so he must be a sniper. It never seems to occur to anyone that a properly equipped sniper would certainly rack up more than one kill out of twenty four attempts.

But I digress.

So what's the big deal? Well, muddied waters are the antis' most useful tool! The more they confuse the public about any firearms-related topic, the more they can generate support for gun control - support backed by pure ignorance. Make them afraid of guns in general, make them afraid of those who use guns in crime (no matter how incompetent they prove to be), make them afraid of the fictitious Hollywood-generated capabilities of so-called assault weapons, sniper rifles and who-knows-what else, and Sarah Brady will soon be able to say, "Mission accomplished."

How long now before they pass a law against sniper pistols?

I have an idea...

Well, it’s been awhile since my last post. Sorry about that. I’ve been rather busy.

Today I want to talk about Israel and my proposed solution for the Middle East crisis.

First things first. Israel rocks. It’s a crying shame that we lack their spirit of total solidarity. You can kill 3,000 of our citizens, and two years later we’ll blame our own President for it. There is a cannibalistic tendency in US politics that never ceases to amaze me. I don’t know who dubbed the extreme left the “Blame America First” crowd, but they were right on with that moniker.

Apparently there is no “Blame Israel First” crowd – at least not among Israelis. I heard that the results of a recent poll indicate 90% of them support this action. Good for them. Too bad we can’t come together like that.
Obviously, I support their efforts. I can’t help but think how valued their citizens (especially those two soldiers) must feel to know that their government is willing to go to war for them. Would the USA go to war over a kidnapped soldier? Not bloody likely.

Speaking of the USA, don’t you find our official position to be rather disgusting? General appeasement – let’s not upset anyone. We support Israel, but we also support all the Arab nations. I’m sick of the façade – we have to pretend that we’re good buddies with people that we detest simply because we want their oil.

So here’s my solution:


There are several contradictory opinions and estimates about how long domestic oil production would support domestic oil demand. They range from two to thirty years. So let’s say ten.
Effective immediately, we cut our ties with foreign oil. We open production stateside and use only what we can produce. We set a ten year deadline for the US to be free from oil dependence. Thus, our domestic supply holds out until we can run our cars on something else. And here’s the best part:

We no longer have to keep shaky alliances with countries that we don’t like. We can draw the line in the sand and say, “We’re for Israel.”

Why Israel? Well, I’ll post on that later.

I recently purchased a Remington 870 Tactical Magnum. It has no legitimate sporting purpose whatsoever. I bought it because I think it would be really really handy if I ever have to kill someone inside my house.

Olive drab green finish...tritium insert on the bead...7 round capacity...and best of all a Knoxx Industries Spec-Ops stock. Basically the Spec-Ops stock looks like an M4/AR-15 adjustable stock - pistol grip and all. It has a unique spring system that drastically reduces felt recoil.

I'm drooling as I type...

Anyway, I bought the gun used over the Internet. Had it shipped to a local FFL for the transfer (don't you just love the GCA?) Took delivery this Saturday, only to find that the stock was busted. So I called Knoxx and they gave me instructions to return it.

Now this was truly shocking. I told the guy up front that I bought this gun used. I was just looking for some advice on how to fix it. But he said to send it in. So send it in I did (the stock.) Then, to my further shock, they called me when they received it! Best of all, they were calling to say that they are replacing it.

Unbelievable. Now I'll be well equipped with an EGS. (That's Evil Green Shotgun.)

Props to Knoxx. That's the best customer service I've ever had. Ever.

Now they've got spyplanes. It's not surprising, really. What really angers me about this article is the fact that they want to strike this down because of safety concerns.

Of course, those of us who object to Big Brother's Eyes in the Sky are referred to as "privacy advocates." I guess we're the kook fringe. The wackos. The nutjobs that don't want the government's fingers in every aspect of our lives.

Where the heck is the ACLU when you actually need them?

Just put me in a pine box...

This is an article about "green burial." It's almost not worth commenting on, but I haven't blogged in ahwile, so it's at least something. There is an unsurprising movement by the greeners to not embalm the dead. They bury them in biodegradeable coffins.

*shrug* Let them have their strange ways. I don't mind. Here's what gets me:

"We've seen growth in the hospice movement," she said. "We've seen an upswing of home birthing. People are interested in returning to the simple ways. This is just a dust-to-dust approach to funerals."

This from the same crowd that pushes nanny-state politics and doesn't want anyone to return to the "wild days of Dodge City where just anyone can carry a gun."
