“Who are the militia? Are they not ourselves? Is it feared, then, that we shall turn our arms each man gainst his own bosom. Congress have no power to disarm the militia. Their swords, and every other terrible implement of the soldier, are the birthright of an American... The unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the people.”

If they can import this little bugger to the United States (doubtful, given our idiotic importation laws), and if it is in any way "affordable" (even more doubtful, given the class it is competing in), and if it actually manages to live up to its advertised specifications ("divine intervention" levels of doubtful), I will happily swallow (most of) my complaints about electric cars and plop my butt down in the one-and-only front seat of a […]

browncoats have bucks

By now, my readers should be more than aware of the fact that I am a proud Browncoat – I missed Firefly when it first aired on Fox, but on my parents’ urgings, I found the DVDs, and I am pretty sure I watched the entire series all the way through once I started.  And then found time to watch it again.  And have since watched it more times than I probably care to count.  […]
