Guns, One Hand Washes The Other

Posted by JohnRussell on December 21, 2014 at 8:00am 9 Comments

Ten days ago or so, there was a shooting incident inside a Chicago neighborhood bar. I won't give the name but if one were to google something like 'chicago bar shooting' the bare facts won't be difficult to find.

What happened was that there was an argument between two guys in one pub, and one of the two left and walked across the street to a different establishment to continue drinking. Shortly thereafter the second fellow followed the first in to the bar across the street and they…

Crack Whore. Crack Whore? Crack Whore!

Crack Whore. Crack Whore. Crack Whore.

My granddaughter is almost 3. She's learning to talk at a really amazing rate. She is learning new words, repeating phrases, even entire sentences that she hears us say, and saying things that we never taught her. I've been fussing at her grandmother and her mom, both of them potty mouths, about their language around the kid. They ARE getting better, but....

Laural and I were playing the other day and Dan-Dan, her dog, ran behind her and…

Why the NewTown families’ lawsuit against Bushmaster will fail

Posted by Bruce "ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ" Tarleton on December 15, 2014 at 7:45pm 2 Comments

It’s called the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act.  Signed into law in 2005, the Act provides immunity to Gun Manufacturers and dealers from negligence when their product has been used in crimes.  Prior to its passing, Ruger, Smith & Wesson, and many other gun manufacturers spent billions of dollars in settlements for lawsuits arising from criminal use of their products.

The law is somewhat narrow in its immunity.  All regulations must be followed with the sale of the…

Two Years

TWO YEARS

 

Not such a lengthy span. Or a lifetime. Seven hundred and thirty days. Seventeen thousand five hundred and twenty hours, or one million five hundred one thousand two hundred minutes.

 It depends on your perspective, doesn’t it?

“Time flies when you’re having fun,” they say. And so it does.

Of course, they also say; “Time flies like an arrow. Fruitflies like a peach.”

Both, of course are true, though I think that I envy the fruitflies that…

Character - Different Meanings to Different People

Posted by Robert in Ohio on December 13, 2014 at 4:49pm 5 Comments

Character, integrity and loyalty are three qualities that my grandfather told me were the basis of what kind of person we turn out to be and what kind of example we are to others/

I saw this on line and it captured a lot of what he meant

Surprise! More Blacks say Gun Ownership Protects People from Crime

Posted by Bruce "ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ" Tarleton on December 11, 2014 at 1:00am 9 Comments

Recent Pew Research polling shows a growing support for Gun Rights.  For the first time in more than two decades, support for Gun Rights exceeds support for Gun Control, 52% to 46%

Further polling indicates that more people believe Gun Ownership does more to protect people from crime (57%) than believe it endangers personal safety (38%).

But the big change over the last two years of polling is the attitude of blacks to gun ownership. …

My tribute to William Dunn, the first American Ace of WWII

Posted by Bruce "ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ" Tarleton on December 10, 2014 at 11:51am 11 Comments

History is usually marked in time with firsts. First to fly. First jet aircraft. First man on the moon. Usually there is a general agreement on what we are taught about who was first doing what. But there are some cases that require strict definition to define the first.



Take for instance the first man to break the sound barrier. When asked, most people will quickly say it was Chuck Yeager in the Bell X-1 aircraft in 1947. But the fact is, the sound barrier was broken years…

Hillary Is "Finished" , Or So Say Her Enemies

Posted by JohnRussell on December 8, 2014 at 8:46am 6 Comments

by John Russell

If you can think of a right wing or conservative news source, there is a good chance that in the last 4 days they promoted a story to the effect of "Hillary Is Finished" , or "Hillary Is History", a reference that is much more pertinent to an appearance by Oliver North on an anti-Hillary television network than it is to Clinton's presidential chances. One might say the reference is ENTIRELY connected to Oliver North.

I cannot find a single non…
