Lots of blogging going on over at The Zelman Partisans

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

It’s turning into a busy blog over there, with posts from unique pro-gun perspectives.

Some of the latest:

“The Ghetto Mentality” by newest blogger Y.B. ben Avraham, on how so many Jews ended up being anti-gun.

Vladka Peltel’s slightly tongue-twisting “I Don’t Want to Hear ‘Never Again!’ Ever Again.”

“Faith and Firearms Revisited” by Nicki Kenyon, who also examines Jews, anti-gun attitudes, and the duty to protect life.

And one that’s near and dear to my heart, Sheila Stokes-Begley’s “Dreidels and Hedgerows,” which draws some similarities between Irish history and the history of the ancient Jews.

There’s a new gun blog in town

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

The Zelman Partisans.

I’m one of five or six volunteer writers. Nicki Kenyon kicked things off last week with a slam against a Bloomberg “mom” who’s blindingly ignorant of history.

Sheila Stokes-Begley made a pair of posts about her visit to Yad Vashem.

And I joined them yesterday with “Defense Distributed and the Spirit of Resistance.”



ADDED: Personal to E.A. — I’ve been trying to get hold of you to ask you to blog with us! Hope you’ll get in touch.

  • Tam? Tam, where have you gone? Your blog was one of the stones on which the gunblogosphere was built.
  • Doctors getting fed up with their profession. No surprise. Not really news. But an interesting perspective from a physician.
  • “Who owns your children?” Bayou Renaissance Man asks after last week’s case of a family subjected to an international manhunt for disagreeing with their son’s doctors.
  • What do you know about MaidSafe? Is this the future of communications privacy? (H/T PB in comments)
  • Teacher arrested over school shootings — that he wrote about in novels. David Codrea notes that we don’t know the whole story, but it doesn’t sound good.
  • Puppy love. Between a cheetah cub and a yellow Lab pup.

TUAK going quiet (temporarily)

Thursday, June 12th, 2014

Joel asked me to let everybody know that he’s temporarily lost Internet service (he didn’t say why) and that The Ultimate Answer to Kings might not see any new posting for a couple of days. Drat! TUAK is always a favorite stop for the day.

Okay, okay, I know Facebook is totally eeeevil, just plain oooozing eeeeevil. But I tell you, Ragnar’s Freedom Outlaw Facebook Page is amazing.

In the few weeks it’s been alive, it’s received a whopping 2,000 likes (it’s within spittin’ distance of that this afternoon). It’s busy and lively and a great place to find some very funny freedomstuff. Better yet, you don’t have to join The Dreaded Facebook to view all that fun stuff. It’s got giveaways of pocket Constitutions and Freedom Outlaw wristbands, and other cool stuff (though you do have to join to compete for those).

And now it’s even got a verrrrry sexy freedomista mascot. (Hope that link works; among it’s other ills, FB doesn’t make it easy for non-participants to “share” content.)

I don’t think it has this yet, though:


I stole that from the blog.

But Ragnar’s Freedom Outlaw page has everything else. A huge thank you to Ragnar for giving such energy to the Freedom Outlaw meme and using the eeeevil FB to send beaucoup traffic to this blog!

On days you arrive here to find not enough blogitude to give you your Outlaw fix, or on days you just crave a little more Freedomista Power (with some laughs thrown in), there’s always something going on at Ragnar’s place.

Something for you to read while I’m out playing

Monday, September 24th, 2012

The new Price of Liberty blog. (Added to the blogroll, also.)

From The Oatmeal: “My dog, the paradox.” (H/T CB)

Tree is down (safely, but not without a little “adventure”), deadlines ALLLLLLL met. I’m off to the beach for the day.

The Tireless Agorist

Monday, February 20th, 2012

Since joining Twitter (which, seriously, does have some uses) I’ve been following a new-but-prolific blog The Tireless Agorist.

I’ve just added it to the Living Freedom blogroll under two categories. I’d have done this in any case because “Agorist Don” writes himself one good blog.

But it doesn’t hurt at all that today’s entry is about Hardyville.

I’ll be tweeting you (sigh)

Saturday, February 11th, 2012

Last year, when things were looking a bit down for me, a friend suggested that I start a “101 Things” Twitter account, mostly to post useful liberty info & thoughts.

It was a brilliant idea. I mean, other than the fact that hermits and social media don’t go well together. And other than the fact that I can barely even write my name in fewer than 140 characters.

Toward the end of the year, I bit the bullet and set up a Twitter account. Two of them, actually. But when one of them attracted a “follower” within 12 hours, I was so horrified I never went back, forgot my logins, and haven’t tweeted a word.

But I’m going to start. Really. And I’m following a few folks now, too.

I’ll probably be doing most of my tweeting as @101ForLiberty (so far, all of one tweet and that basically contentless). I’ll try to make my tweets as useful as possible.

I’m still trying to figure out how to get back into the other account …

Two on survival

Thursday, December 22nd, 2011

Talk about SHTF! Here’s the blog of somebody who survived a solid year of you-know-what impacting the rotary airfoil. He now teaches others.

His English isn’t perfect. Never mind that. (Tip o’ hat to A.)


And you’ve probably heard about this incredibly lucky young lady rescued from her car in the Arizona highlands after nine days stranded in snow.

This article doesn’t say it, but she was apparently on an extended road trip, wandering around with no destination and nobody knowing where she was. In December. A mile above sea level. With snowstorms forecast. With a dead cellphone. With no emergency gear. Not even a warm coat or a blanket in her vehicle.

I won’t say anything about the gene pool. I realize even the best prepared among us could get stuck in deadly circumstances beyond our control. But if you want a textbook case in how not to survive, here you have it.

Almost as bad as those young morons a few years ago who decided to take Nevada dirt roads when the freeway was closed by snow. You do have to give them points for pluck, if not common sense.
