“That’s The Fact – Jack!”

Quote of the YEAR!

Yes, more people are killed by cows each year than lawful guns intentionally fired by a non criminal. Even more than sharks (though I’d avoid if swimming in the Pacific wearing your wasabi wet suit).

Yes – Cows.

Brigid

My dear friend Brigid wins the Internets with this one!  And all the more serious (and sometimes less so) appending text.

I’m not big on insulting my readership, however, if you are not reading Brigid regularly (and own a copy (or more) of her Barkley book – see the sidebar) THEN YOU ARE AN IDIOT!

She is thoughtful, and well-versed in the manner of educated prose.  And poetry!  And turns-of-phrase. (see above).

And, she’s a redhead!brigid4

 

Who would hurt me significantly if I posted a proper photograph.

Miami Vice Redux?

I LOVE(D) MIAMI VICE! (the TV show – the later movie, not so much)

The girls, the guns, the music, the gritty (for then) plot lines.  Being a young married guy at the time, who was shooting I.P.S.C. on Thursday nights, Friday evening was just right for kicking back and imagining my suburban life rebooted as Sonny Crockett.

NBC program director Brandon Tartikoff had put out the request for a new show with the memo:  Give me MTV Cops!

I’d admired the lead actor Don Johnson since A Boy and his Dog, and the fact Michael Mann (the producer/creator who had done the film Thief) hired experts to show the actors proper gun handling and techniques made this TV show too cool.  The Galco custom holster, the Bren 10 pistol (used by Johnson one year, until they could no longer get magazines!), the ubiquitous Weaver stances, Jan Hammer’s music…

Now. Johnson (@ age 64) is himself envisioning a Miami Vice reboot!

The stubbled star talks about being showered with women’s underwear and why the Reagan-era series is ready for a reboot (Rolling Stone)

I loved the show, but, what are they going to call it – Geriatric Vice?

Gun Owners Are All Slack-Jawed White Guys! Right?

Welcome to the 21st Century!

Let me introduce you to Lucretia Free, Founder and Publisher of The American Woman Shooter!

LF

Free isn’t new to the publishing business, having already launched the successful community newspaper in southeast Tucson, The Vail Voice, and its sister paper in northeast Tucson, The Tanque Verde Voice. She is, however, new to the shooting sports.

“Early last year, a friend invited me to the range. I was expecting it to be a very long morning. Instead, I was very surprised to find that I enjoyed shooting,” recalled Free.

Find out more about Free’s experience at the gun range, and why she launched The American Woman Shooter in an article at the National Shooting Sports Foundation’s First Shots newsletter.

Seriously?  You bet!  Talk about more diversity!  A relative newbie putting it out there.

This is one reason the lefty, progressive, democratic party (gun) control freaks are LOSING!

(FTC – this woman and her magazine give me nothing.  Go Away!)

What DID You Accomplish, As Secretary-Of-State, Ms. Clinton?

When she was asked about her accomplishments as Secretary of State, she responded:

“My accomplishments as Secretary of State? Well, I’m glad you asked! My proudest accomplishment in which I take the most pride, mostly because of the opposition it faced early on, you know… the remnants of prior situations and mindsets that were too narrowly focused in a manner whereby they may have overlooked the bigger picture and we didn’t do that and I’m proud of that. Very proud. I would say that’s a major accomplishment.”   -   Hillary Clinton 11 March 2014

Can anyone figure out what in the hell she just said? And she may be running for President?

Reminds me of a TV commercial of some years back, wherein the politician on-screen says, “And furthermore, in conclusion…” as if he is being paid by the word!   I’m thinking she needs a teleprompter, not unlike another politician who dare not open his mouth without nearby speechwriters.

As another blogger stated, I’ve no problem with a woman as Chief Executive, but, JUST NOT THIS ONE!  And I’m not even mentioning Benghazi or Watergate! – Guffaw

A Right To An Opinion

Lotsa folks opine on the Internet, Facebook, blogs, et al.

One of the best things about this Nation is our right to free speech – to speak our mind, regardless.

Witness those vile Kansas ‘church’ folks who protest military funerals, or the Klan, or the New Black Panthers.

I tend to gravitate toward folks on the Internet like-minded to me.  That makes sense, because I’ve enough blood pressure issues w/o stroking out after reading WaPo, or the Nation, or other collectivist crap.

But, having no military experience (not for lack of trying) in these issues, I defer to folks who have some.  Sometimes we agree, sometimes not.

rangerOne of my go-to guys is AmericanMercenary.  Not just a rank-and-file grunt (not that there’s anything wrong with that), but an Army Ranger!

He recently wrote regarding the ongoing issue of women in military combat elite units.  My understanding is some other nations have tried it and kept it, some eventually rejected it (in combat roles).

While I understand the whole equal rights thing, I don’t think political correctness is a good reason for policy change in this instance.

But my blogfriend(tm) American Mercenary disagrees with me!

Who knew?

Bring it on.

Once again the “fairness at all costs” crowd has succeeded in opening up more opportunities for women to act like men.
I remember Don Brown teaching us in college that women shouldn’t be patrol officers, because they are inherently weaker and one day may be raped in the back of their patrol cars! (1973).
A friend of a friend is a retired city detective, an expert in sex crime investigation, a crack shot and can bench press over 400 pounds!  She is also a very nice lady.
If you can do the job, go for it!
HOO-AH!

Turned Out It Was B00BS WITH Guns!

Boobs and Guns

Protesters in Texas thought that showing up topless to an Open Carry rally to protest the protestors was a good idea.

Carrying signs that said, “Boobs are for Babies” they had no idea how big a favor they were doing for the Open Carry folks.
These protests for open carry are to draw attention to the issue. Who knew that 4 nipples would bring so much attention.
–Too bad the breasts were not nicer looking.   (The Miller)
And here I was hoping for gun pr0n!   (Women with Guns is better – some NSFW.  Many not following the Four Rules!)

The WOMAN Who Would Be President

…or Queen.  King?

( with apologies to R. Kipling)

Our former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, doesn’t know that in the UK “Conservative” and “Tory” are synonyms for the same political party…

Hillary Clinton on the Special Relationship between the US and Britain:

“It is so special to me personally and I think that it is very special between our two countries.  There is just not just a common language, there is a common set of values that we can fall back on.  It doesn’t matter in our country whether it is a Republican or Democrat, or frankly in your country whether it is a ‘Conservative’ and ‘Tory.’  There is a level of trust and understanding.  That doesn’t mean that we always agree because of course we don’t.”

posted by John Lott

SERIOUSLY?  A woman whose only claim to fame was to be a dishonored Watergate prosecution attorney, married to a serial rapist, who was from Arkansas, then magically became a United States Senator from New York, then the perennial presidential candidate became the Secretary of State.  And doesn’t know this?

And I’m not even mentioning Whitewater or Benghazi…

Vote for HER for president?  Not on your life!

I tend to like (my) women with longer hair.

This doesn’t mean it must be past their waist (especially if it starts at their lower back!) but it does mean in this matter I tend to be traditional.

BUT, this doesn’t mean I’m inflexible…

Witness the exemplars below:

janine turner 2REMEMBER Janine Turner (of Northern Exposure) fame?  Smart, savvy, with those terrific eyes?  She was the main reason I watched the show!

But that was the 90’s.

I recently stumbled upon a new show entitled Taxi Brooklyn, wherein a female NYPD detective (who is an abysmal driver) enlists the aid of a suspect/witness to chauffeur her around in his taxi.  The plot and theme have many holes in them, but, then there’s this detective…

chyler leigh 2Chyler Leigh!

Not a beautiful as Janine Turner, but still as appealing and spunky!

I still like women with longer hair, but, I WILL make exceptions!

Gotta be flexible, ya know.

Love Potion (Hoppe’s) #9

hoppesI don’t have much occasion to clean firearms, anymore.

Why?  I don’t get to shoot very much.

I noticed after my last outing that I was low completely out of my mainstay solvent, Hoppe’s #9!

I went to a nearby firearms emporium to get some.  They not only didn’t have any, they said they didn’t even stock it!

So I had to settle for some Remington-branded ‘green’ gun cleaner.

It seemed to work okay, but it didn’t have the olfactory thrill (toxicity) of the Hoppes.

Scientists tell us that the sense-of-smell is deeply ingrained in our psyche.  Food tastes better, uh personal interactions are better, when the nose is working properly.  Memories are triggered.

I’d drive to a farther gun shop, but my car is failing…

I really miss the smell of Hoppe’s!  It can be ordered on line, but the interstate chemical transport fees are huge!  So much for THAT idea!

Of course, there was that waitress who smelled of Ivory Soap….

(Sorry, another memory triggered!)

FTC – Hoppe’s and Remington gave me nothing!  Go clean your own guns and find your own waitresses!

The Times – They Are A Changin’

(Courtesy of Sean Linneane – Stormbringer)

Friend sent this in last night he’s over there in the Suck . . . S.L.There was this new Intell chick at this evening’s base defense meeting. The Company Commander asked a couple of basic introductory questions and it went something like this . . .Major: “So where are you from?”

Chick: “CJSOTF.”

Major: “No, I mean where are you from in the States?”

Chick: “Florida.”

Major: “What about your husband, where’s he from?”

Chick: “I don’t have a husband, I have a wife and she’s from Florida too.”

The whole room erupted.

The Four Rules

1. ALL GUNS ARE ALWAYS LOADED.

2. NEVER POINT YOUR MUZZLE AT SOMETHING YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO DESTROY.

3. KEEP YOUR FINGER OFF THE TRIGGER UNTIL YOUR SIGHTS ARE ON THE TARGET AND YOU ARE READY TO SHOOT.

4. KNOW YOUR TARGET AND WHAT'S BEYOND.

FEAR

"I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain." - Bene Gesserit, from Frank Herbert's Dune

“F**k Civility. Hyperbole, passion, and metaphor are beautiful parts of rhetoric. The marketplace of ideas cannot be toned down for the insane.” - Penn Jillette
