■If your government believes that the best way to eradicate trillions of dollars of debt is to spend trillions more … you might live in a country founded by geniuses and run by idiots.

An Excellent Gift. From a Remarkable Wife.

Posted by Bruce "ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ" Tarleton on December 28, 2014 at 9:12pm 3 Comments

Every year at Christmas, my beautiful Bride proves to me over and over that she has a keen knack for picking just the right gift for me. One year it was a pistol grip style cordless Dremel tool, a tool that has become indispensable to me. Then there was the Nikon 10x32 Prostaff Binoculars. Probably the best pair of binoculars I've ever used. Last year it was a Craftsman 51 piece Max Access socket set.

But this year, she really outdid herself. REALLY.

I have wanted an…

Guns, One Hand Washes The Other

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.

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 4 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…
