“Resistance to sudden violence, for the preservation not only of my person, my limbs, and life, but of my property, is an indisputable right of nature which I have never surrendered to the public by the compact of society, and which perhaps, I could not surrender if I would.”
by John Adams

in light of recent events

In case you have not heard, 12 people were murdered today by a couple of undereducated, over-indoctrinated, violent radicals who got their lace panties in a twist over a couple of cartoons depicting their chosen messiah in less-than-flattering ways. 

And even without me specifying the religion of the attackers in that sentence, I bet you can figure out which one the murderous assholes adhered to without clicking through the link.  Which is […]

that ugly "need" hydra

A few months ago, I happened to have a rather… interesting*… conversation with the warped and benighted mind behind the Twitter account of @1StopCity. A recurring theme in this particular conversation is that unless you have a particular "need" for something or to do something, you have absolutely no right to that thing or to do that thing, or, in his very own words, "Odds against you "needing" a gun negate […]

baldr odinson is a joke

And not a very good one at that.

A few days ago, Baldr Odinson, one of the more dishonest, lie-prone, straight-up moronic anti-rights cultists out there, put up some asinine list entitled "You’re Probably A Pro-Gun Extremist If …. " which basically boiled down to, "If you disagree with me and my ‘gun control’ desires, you are an ‘extremist’ and in need […]

mike barkley, petty authoritarian for congress



Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States repealing the right to keep and bear arms.

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid for all intents and purposes as […]

clarification on the collapse

File this under "Reasons Not to Write Weblog Posts When You are So Angry You Can Hardly See Straight".

Last week, I penned the following quote:

I guess our country had a good run, but welcome to the police state. When an apparently law-abiding citizen and veteran can be gunned down in his own home for owning legal property and being unfortunately related to a family of allegedly law-breaking pikers, this […]

in memorial

Our rights, freedoms, and liberties, such as they are, came at an extraordinarily steep price. 

Take a moment today to remember those who voluntarily paid it, for our sake. 

quote of the day – michael j. mollenhour

Jesus Christ was not a pacifist

Anyone who has read the Bible is familiar with the story of the money-changers in the Temple, and how the Son of God dealt with those who had cheated His people in His house.  Likewise, Jesus exhorted his followers to procure swords or knives, even at the cost of selling their own garments if necessary. 

Jesus was, however, non-aggressive, and therein lies […]

quote of the day – joe huffman

At the end of the Constitutional Conventions that finally dictated the type, form, and nature of the government that was going to guide our new nation back in 1787, an anonymous woman is reported to have asked the inimitable Benjamin Franklin what kind of government he and his compatriots had formed – after all, the average people of the Colonies had little knowledge of what was transpiring behind those closed doors. 


burning responsibilities

Yesterday, I received this email from Patrick:

Am I wrong in this? Look at my comments on her site.


I agree that he was incredibly stupid. I disagree that he is responsible for the deaths of the U.N. people and any soldiers. We can’t walk around on egg shells based on what others may do… right?

I value your opinion so I kinda wanted to see what you thought…. her site, […]

gun control and polls

The even-shorter version of my post from this weekend:

Using polls as leverage to support further gun control just means you think the South should have been permitted to keep their slaves.

After all, most Southerners believed that the slave-holders should have been able to keep their property, and most Northerners did not care (and quietly wanted those darkies to stay down South, so they would not have to deal with […]

rights are called rights for a reason

I know I spend a lot of time generating up pretty pictures, and I know I spend a lot of time discussing the merits of firearm ownership, and I know I spend a lot of time debunking the idiotic and bigoted arguments of the anti-rights nuts, and I know I collect a lot of interesting and useful statistics, arguments, and quotes to support the side of the pro-rights activists in America, but there is one […]

like shooting fish in a barrel

Today, we are going to return to the tactic that prompted me to create this category in the very beginning… In Southern Beale’s latest anti-gun screed, she started off whining and moaning about how her previous anti-rights blather seemed to attract some less-than-salutory comments and attention; however, I find it all too amusing that she would wish nearly a hundred million Americans dead (which she did in that previous […]

truth and falsity

Given that Kevin will be forced to upgrade/change his commenting system in the near future, I figured this needed to be preserved for posterity’s sake:


I may be getting a glimmer of what it going on here too.

Could you please explain how it is that you determine the difference between truth and falsity?

What is the process you use?

I don’t think you know how to do it. […]
