A few little things

Friday, April 18th, 2014

I apologize for being so busy and frazzly this week that my blogitude has been neglectful. Been thinking about y’all (and about a possible post on the strange twists and turns of human nature).

Deadlining today, so here are a few quick bits to keep you busy:

Oath Keepers is calling for aid at the Bundy Ranch. I’m glad Stewart, Elias, and crew are on the scene. So is Mike Vanderboegh. Oath Keepers and Threepers. You can help without having to take your own body to Nevada.

JPFO is now offering extremely cool “Izula” knives from ESEE. ESEE donated 100 of them. Just went up for sale yesterday and are already a popular item.

And don’t forget the highly attitudinal “Gun Control is Not Kosher” AR raffle.

Speaking of Nevada, I thought this was funny:


Stolen from Random Nuclear Strikes, who probably stole it from somebody else first. Ain’t the Tubz wunnerful?

  • I’ve been trying to find out how many New Yorkers dutifully lined up by yesterday’s deadline to get their yellow Star of David badges “assault weapon” registration forms. New York officials aren’t telling. Unofficial estimates are interesting.
  • In Seattle (where cops have been under federal scrutiny for being such brutes), apparently police aren’t the only badge-wearing thugs.
  • My apologies to LarryA for not linking this the other day, but it’s a good one even if I’m late with it. “Women’s intuition” and concealed carry meet a very surprised robber.
  • One more reason to exercise no matter how old you are: healthier skin.
  • No, it’s definitely not over at the Bundy Ranch. But the watchers remain ready.
  • Man, poor Mark Witaschek can’t catch a break. Just keep repeating to yourself, “This is the freest nation on earth, this is the freest nation on earth, this is …”

Victory at the Bundy ranch

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

Like most here I’ve been watching the standoff at the Bundy ranch. I’ve had nothing new to add to the discussion, so I haven’t blogged about it. Like others, I was just trying to figure what to make of it. I only hoped it wouldn’t end up being another Weaver/Waco massacre.

Not this time:

There are no words

Wednesday, March 26th, 2014

for atrocities like this.

And yet, such brute slaughter has become acceptable. Common.

No decent human being could have participated in this long, drawn-out murder. No decent human being could condone it. No law could justify it. The agents of the state that committed this vicious crime should be treated no differently than the followers of Charles Manson. They are thrill killers, nothing more. They are no better than the rest of their ilk, from Charles Starkweather to Ted Bundy. May they get what they deserve — and then some.

Via Wendy.
