Florida Tragedy

Three things that nearly ALL "mass murder" shooting incidents have in common:
1.  An evil lunatic who decides to murder innocent people;
2.  The criminally naive insanity of a so-called "gun-free zone";
3.  The bad guy with the gun continues shooting until a good guy with a gun arrives on scene.

Time to outlaw the fantasy of "gun-free zones" - which even murderous nutjobs CORRECTLY interpret as "target rich environments" - because even if you remove every gun from the entire planet, evil men WILL ALWAYS find ways to murder innocent victims.


And if you believe otherwise, then you are merely practicing to become one of the next victims - and will likely take other innocent people with you.

Think on that a spell.

In the meantime, I am one of those "good men skilled at violence", and I will do everything I can to protect others from evil men.

I run TOWARD the sound of gunfire.

Media Propaganda






Written by Mark Twain over a hundred years ago, it is even MORE relevant today than it was then.

Consider all the spin and lies coming from the democrap media - msnbc, cnn, nbc, cbs, abc (who just had to issue a big correction today), the NYSlimes and Washington Compost.......
...and how about the Flynn "guilty plea" that abc screamed PROVED that trump "colluded" with the Russians to win the election?
.....uh, sorry, leftists, but the incident in question occurred in DECEMBER.
{helpful hint for those impaired by chronic socialism - that means it happened AFTER the election}

Also, never forget that whenever one of those "news" outlets does an "opinion poll", they are doing it to INFLUENCE public opinion, NOT to measure or reflect it.
...yeah, if they were truly accurate, then hellary would have her criminal ass in the Oval Office today.

Choose your media sources carefully, and don't be afraid to cross-check one against another.
The sad fact is that there's DAMNED FEW outlets these days who DON'T have a political agenda.

For Veterans' Day

I belong to an online group that restricts membership to only current and former Infantrymen and the Combat Medics who have slogged the mud and sand with us.

************************************************

This is from one of the Brothers in my Grunt Group - it speaks for nearly all of us:
--------------------------------------------------
As Veterans Day approaches I often try to walk quietly among the sheep. I wish to be left to think of those who no longer walk with us, and drink a beer with those who have tread where I do. To the grateful nation and the ungrateful nation alike I answer their thanks or degrading the same way:

“No need to thank me. I have a philosophy, as do most men who served in the job I did. There are a few that are the protectors and fighters for the masses. We are wired differently. A sense of compassion and empathy to those we are charged with defending that does not extend beyond the tip of a sword or end of a rifle barrel. Those who are wired this way have a duty that requires no thanks as it is our contribution to the good of the community.
We will do things no one else can or will, and quietly suffer things others cannot bear, all in the name of defending our charges. It is the core of who we are, a sense of pride and responsibility that is difficult to match.
We are arrogant, loud, and crude bastards....I am not the hero you wanted...but I am the monster you need! I am the Infantry!”

Reflecting






Gotta say it - I ended up voting for trump.
Been through some shit this past year or so - there's been a metric fuck-ton of insanity in my world since my last post here - but, considering my last post, I figured I owed it to anybody who reads this to admit the truth.

No way on God's Green Earth I could ever vote for the communist hellary.
Also gotta admit that - for whatever reason - trump hasn't been the congenital shitbag I figured he would be.

I'm not a fan of his "leadership style", nor am I impressed with many of the things he's done, but - all things considered - I honestly cannot see ANY area where hellary would have been an improvement.


Gorsuch was a good call for SCOTUS, and he's put some good people in key places, but he's also put some real asshats into positions they should never have occupied.

He actually put priebus as Chief of Staff?
REALLY?
....glad he's gone.

I will pat trump on the back when I figure he earns it, and I will (verbally) kick his ass when he earns it.


The truck attack in New York, Las Vegas, the "Russians" witch hunt (which is turning out to be an indictment for the DEMOCRAPS), the frauds mueller and comey, and the endless cavalcade of creeps who infest the Swamp - mcconnell and schumer, ryan and pelosi, mccain and feinstein, just to name a few - I have to admit that I would really like to see trump succeed in some of the things he's trying to do.
...particularly flushing some of the turds out of the cesspool that is Washington, District of Cthulu.

We'll see.

Now the ramp-up for the mid-terms.
Buckle up, buttercups - it's gonna be a helluva ride.

Another Empty Suit

There's a problem with all the trump-bots who are blindly banging the drums - or their fists - for trump, since everything the DT is saying he'll do will COST jobs, not "bring them back".
...such as in what he says he'll do with protectionism and tariffs.
History says he's dead wrong on that....the Smoot-Hawley Act proved it.
As far as not being "politikally korrekt" and "saying what people want to say" - there's a difference between strongly standing up for your point of view and being a vulgar asshole.
If common courtesy matters in private conversations, how much MORE does it matter when you've got the biggest soapbox on the planet - i.e. the U.S. Presidency?

Next, there's that hokum about "bringing back jobs"?
HOW - precisely - does he plan on doing that?
Don't believe for one moment that even if he DID manage to flush every illegal out of the nation tomorrow, that somehow that would entice businesses to return their manufacturing to America.
WHY would they?
Has he even said ONE WORD about shutting down forced unionism?
- ask what's left of Detroit what happens when you're infected with rabid unions.
Instead, he's getting a bit of support from some of them.
He says he'll cut business taxes to 15%, but - other than the EPA - which other department(s) will he cut, since FedGov OVER-REGULATION is one of the biggest job-killers America faces?
- or is he just going to do more crony capitalism (buying politicians) like he says he's done his whole career?

Which is worse:  the politician who sells his soul, or the billionaire who buys it?
....or the billionaire who decides to skip the middleman and BECOME the politician?

How about the DT's "tax plan" - where he has 4 tax rates:  25% for the highest earners (who also reap the most benefit), then 20%, then 10%....and then a whopping 0% for the lowest earners.
(anybody else see the problem here?)

...oh, and his "plan" also adds well over $9 TRILLION in new debt..........

Then there's the little fact that the DT is ON RECORD not only stating that as Commander-in-Chief he would issue ILLEGAL ORDERS to specifically target terrorists' FAMILIES (uh, that is SERIOUSLY against the Geneva Conventions Protocols!), and when questioned about what he'd do when soldiers - RIGHTLY! - refuse to obey such illegal orders, he said, "Oh, they'll DO what I say...."
Yeah, I've got a REAL problem with THAT level of arrogant stupidity!

How about the 2nd Amendment?
You DO know that clear back in the distant past - WAAAYYYY back in 2000 (and in his own BOOK) - he said he supports a ban on "assault weapons".....
So what does THAT say about anyone he might nominate for the Supreme Court?

Then again, his trump-bots try to cover his ass by saying that he IS a "typical New Yorker" - ignoring the fact that he has supported the communist deblassio, the sick puke chuck schumer, and the future-felon hellary cliton - while he lives down to all the tired stereotypes that go with it, such as rudeness, selfishness, a "progressive" mind-set, and a life-long streak of corruption.

And if they were truly worried about the Constitution, and thoroughly sick and tired of Lil' King Putt wiping his rump with it while ruling by Executive Orders, could any of them point to ANY real examples where the DT has CITED said Constitution and STATED HOW HE WILL USE IT to accomplish any of the things he's promised (this week) and NOT just "because I say so"?
Any of them?
....anyone at all?

We do NOT need another tyrant in the White House.
Don't pay any attention to what he SAYS - look at what he's DONE.
Time for rational thought, not "make America hate" emotionalism.
...then again, I'm certain Tsar Vladimir the Worst would simply LOVE to "make a deal" with someone like the DT - another, more expensive, empty suit - who thinks he's a "real leader"....

Now More Than Ever

At the beginning of this New Year,
allow me to be absolutely clear about this.
The 2nd Amendment is for the American people, 
NOT for hunting or target practice.
It is there so that Americans can protect 
themselves from ALL threats - 
foreign, 
domestic, 
and, if necessary,
FROM THE GOVERNMENT ITSELF.
I AM NOT A SHEEP.

For All Veterans - 2015

I found this gem over at BlackFive.net, and immediately - shamelessly - stole it: 
{kudos to Uncle Jimbo for keeping this one going}




The Best Veterans Day Column By The Late, Great (and Vet) Mike Royko

"A man who is good enough to shed his blood for his country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards." - Theodore Roosevelt
Again this year (sort of a Veterans Day tradition), I wanted to offer up my favorite Veterans Day article from the late, great Mike Royko (1932 - 1997) who penned it in 1993.  I don't care if you were a paratrooper, cook, medic, grunt, pilot, or ran the laundry and bath point, you have my thanks for serving our country.
I think Mike's got the right idea about how to celebrate Veterans Day, GI-Style:
I just phoned six friends and asked them what they will be doing on Monday.
They all said the same thing: working.
Me, too.
There is something else we share. We are all military veterans.
And there is a third thing we have in common. We are not employees of the federal government, state government, county government, municipal government, the Postal Service, the courts, banks, or S & Ls, and we don’t teach school.
If we did, we would be among the many millions of people who will spend Monday goofing off.
Which is why it is about time Congress revised the ridiculous terms of Veterans Day as a national holiday.
The purpose of Veterans Day is to honor all veterans.
So how does this country honor them?...
...By letting the veterans, the majority of whom work in the private sector, spend the day at their jobs so they can pay taxes that permit millions of non-veterans to get paid for doing nothing.
As my friend Harry put it:
"First I went through basic training. Then infantry school. Then I got on a crowded, stinking troop ship that took 23 days to get from San Francisco to Japan. We went through a storm that had 90 percent of the guys on the ship throwing up for a week.
"Then I rode a beat-up transport plane from Japan to Korea, and it almost went down in the drink. I think the pilot was drunk.
"When I got to Korea, I was lucky. The war ended seven months after I got there, and I didn’t kill anybody and nobody killed me.
"But it was still a miserable experience. Then when my tour was over, I got on another troop ship and it took 21 stinking days to cross the Pacific.
"When I got home on leave, one of the older guys at the neighborhood bar — he was a World War II vet — told me I was a ----head because we didn’t win, we only got a tie.
"So now on Veterans Day I get up in the morning and go down to the office and work.
"You know what my nephew does? He sleeps in. That’s because he works for the state.
"And do you know what he did during the Vietnam War? He ducked the draft by getting a job teaching at an inner-city school.
"Now, is that a raw deal or what?"
Of course that’s a raw deal. So I propose that the members of Congress revise Veterans Day to provide the following:
- All veterans — and only veterans — should have the day off from work. It doesn’t matter if they were combat heroes or stateside clerk-typists.
Anybody who went through basic training and was awakened before dawn by a red-neck drill sergeant who bellowed: "Drop your whatsis and grab your socks and fall out on the road," is entitled.
- Those veterans who wish to march in parades, make speeches or listen to speeches can do so. But for those who don’t, all local gambling laws should be suspended for the day to permit vets to gather in taverns, pull a couple of tables together and spend the day playing poker, blackjack, craps, drinking and telling lewd lies about lewd experiences with lewd women. All bar prices should be rolled back to enlisted men’s club prices, Officers can pay the going rate, the stiffs.
- All anti-smoking laws will be suspended for Veterans Day. The same hold for all misdemeanor laws pertaining to disorderly conduct, non-felonious brawling, leering, gawking and any other gross and disgusting public behavior that does not harm another individual.
- It will be a treasonable offense for any spouse or live-in girlfriend (or boyfriend, if it applies) to utter the dreaded words: "What time will you be home tonight?"
- Anyone caught posing as a veteran will be required to eat a triple portion of chipped beef on toast, with Spam on the side, and spend the day watching a chaplain present a color-slide presentation on the horrors of VD.
- Regardless of how high his office, no politician who had the opportunity to serve in the military, but didn’t, will be allowed to make a patriotic speech, appear on TV, or poke his nose out of his office for the entire day.
Any politician who defies this ban will be required to spend 12 hours wearing headphones and listening to tapes of President Clinton explaining his deferments.
Now, deal the cards and pass the tequila.
- Mike Royko
Amen, Mike, Amen.
Now, where is that tequila?
