the gun culture is dying. sure it is.

This recent Black Friday – the Friday immediately following Thanksgiving wherein Americans try to commercialize Christmas as hard and as fast as they can – apparently set a new all-time record for the number of NICS checks in America:

Tell me again how the "gun culture" is dying – I need something to laugh at.

Additionally, I would like to correct something the NSSF article said, and add to it a bit […]

our rights are not the only things in danger

All of us look at certain situations through the perspectives of our own experience, and I will freely and openly admit that I considered the aforeposted ammunition and magazine idiocies from the perspective of a consumer, a recreational shooter, and a person who values his individual rights and freedoms.

However, Owen Martin, the proprietor of and Snake Hound Machine, looks at such things from the perspective of wanting to feed his family; a […]

the internet never forgets – government edition

As gas prices continue to spiral out of control:

(The chart is for Knoxville, TN, though the USA average differs only in that whacky spike and about $0.10.)

… I have only two things to say.

First, how is that "hope and change" treating you? About this time in the last President’s most-recent term, the liberals and the media (but I repeat myself) were viciously castigating him for absolutely horrid gas […]

a perfect post for the day

In all honesty, I consider Ann Barnhardt to be something of a loon, but I give her credit for pissing off radical liberals, violent Islamists, and anti-rights cultists all with equal aplomb.

And now I give her credit for saying that which we all know, but none of us are willing to admit:

examine their motivation

A goodly number of my compatriots are justifiably annoyed at the second-in-line for the American throne Presidency referring to supporters of a more fiscally-sound budgetary policy as "terrorists", and I can certainly understand where they are coming from.

But, really, Vice-President Joe Biden saying something mind-numbingly idiotic is not much of a concern to me… after all, this is nothing new.

Instead, I am intrigued and – I will admit it – entertained […]

president obama’s downgrade

I firmly believe (and the evidence indicates) that the current economic situation, and credit downgrade, are the product of years’ and years’ worth of effort by short-sighted morons on all sides of the aisles, but this graphic was just too damned funny not to share:

The not-really-"progressives" of our country were all about blaming President Bush for things that happened "on his watch", regardless of whether or not he had any direct control […]

doubling down on failure

Apparently Our Glorious President has already announced that he will be running for re-election next year.

Is anyone surprised by this?

I mean, hell, in the past two years, he has successfully managed to drive our economy into the toilet, increase the federal deficit and debt by previously-unheard-of numbers and percentages, embroil America in yet another war, and generally piss off and annoy the majority of people on all sides of the political […]
