(Well, not mine, exactly…
BUT, I do agree!)
From Brock Townsend
I will not give up my guns. You will have to try to take them.
One of us will die.
I will not give up combat-capable rifles, their standard-capacity, 30-round magazines, nor any kind of ammunition that I see fit to run through these guns. I will not give up my combat-capable shotgun, designed to kill a human being the first time, every time with one well-aimed blast of plated buckshot. I will not give up my high-capacity semi-automatic pistols that I can hide under almost any kind of clothing without a hint that I’m armed at all, nor will I give up the hollowpoint ammunition that fills them. You will not take my long-range precision rifle, with which I control anything within a half-mile of my position.
I am one of 100 million armed American citizens, trained in the use of small arms by military and police trainers who want citizens to be armed against an increasingly tyrannical government.
We are free, and we will not submit to you.
My only additional comment is this was posted in response to a front-page editorial published Saturday by the NYT, the second in 95 years. (The first criticizing the nomination of Harding for President). The editorial was about us needing to renounce our right to be armed.
I don’t think the original editorial changed any of the minds of the current NYT readership – all 6 of them.
THIS is CNN (Again)
Images of the mixed-race, hater of White people who killed nine people (after asking them if they were Christians!) at the junior college.
(And who shall NOT be named here…)
I’m certain there was no intent to deceive anyone here.
Per my loyal readership, this image has been debunked as not from CNN! Mea Culpa.
Of course, this doesn’t mean the mixed race shooter didn’t shoot people based on their religion…

NYT – September 11. 2015
Old NFO (via JP) brings us geekery of the first order, coupled with first-rate humor!
The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by investigators at a major U.S. research university. The new element has been named Hillarium. The chemical symbol of Hillarium is Bs.Hillarium has no protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of 0. However, it does have one neutron, 125 assistant neutrons, 75 vice neutrons and 111 assistant vice neutrons, which gives it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a force that involves the continuous exchange of meson-like particles called morons.Hillarium’s mass actually increases over time, as morons randomly interact with various elements in the atmosphere and become assistant deputy neutrons within the Hillarium molecule, leading to the formation of isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to believe that Hillarium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as a Critical Morass. When catalyzed with money, Hillarium activates CNNadnausium and MSNBCobnoxium, elements that radiates orders of magnitude more energy, albeit as incoherent noise, since each has half as many peons but twice as many morons as Hillarium. Hillarium has also been reported in some war torn countries to inexplicably draw sniper fire out of thin air where no snipers are present, and to cause shoes to catapult across the room as a result of intense attraction to Hillarium.
I love Bill Cosby. The public persona of him. Funny, kind, charitable, good to children. He took a segregated world of us and them and made us we. He understood that people are people, have children, they act like kids and parents act like parents. No matter what color you are.
He made a lot of money doing this, and got a doctorate along the way. And, was a good friend of his co-star in I Spy, Robert Culp. They spoke every day after they met initially to do the show. And for the rest of Culp’s life. Culp taught Cosby about acting and how Hollywood works.
I disagree with Bill Cosby about guns. His son was murdered. That could color your view. I agree with him regarding self-respect and education.
I love his comedy.
As to these allegations that have surfaced. At first, I was shocked, surprised. I didn’t want to believe. I mean, this is BILL COSBY, not Al Sharpton!?
But then I remembered Michael Jackson. And Bill Clinton. People in famous and monied positions are easy targets for predators.
And sometimes ARE predators.
Jackson paid some folks off. Whether it was easier than a trial or simply efficient, I do not know. Cosby paid some folks off. Clinton used his power and influence to intimidate folks into silence.
And there was more physical evidence regarding Clinton than Cosby!
Bill Cosby has yet to have his day in court. And THAT’S what we’re supposed to be about. Justice. The women who have come forward (
16 17 by this morning’s count) have no physical evidence and have nothing to gain. Those who allege payment were already paid. And concerts have been cancelled and reruns excised from TVLand. The testimonial evidence appears damning, but…
Innocent until proven guilty
I read that somewhere.
Being tried in and by the media is the price of fame. Mel Gibson and Lindsay Lohan know this. So do Bill Clinton and President Obama.
It helps to have them on your side.
I’m tracking the so-called major media, looking for the major story about the Million Vet March…
To be fair, CNN, Fox, and NPR did cover the story, mentioning (mumble-mumble) thousand veterans showed up as promised, brought down the barricades, and occupied the memorials. Apparently, some politicians spoke, and The President barricaded The White House against rioters. (Actually, some protesters moved some barricades to in front of the Executive mansion!)
At least it was the lead on Drudge for a while…
No rioters were spotted.
There was no reported violence, or damaging of the historic sites, save the removal of the barricades. One protester was arrested for having handguns in his backpack in D.C.
And no report as to accurate numbers of attendees, either. It’s as though the MSM had an editorial agenda (?)
I was reminded of a Summer protest in front of the Arizona State Capitol. I think it was the weekend after Independence Day, so you know it was hot. The peaceful protesters were speaking out against yet another attempted action by the State and Federal governments, regarding guns and gun control. This was during the time of the Clinton so-called Assault Weapons Ban. Something like 250+ protesters were there, with appropriate signs and speakers. Seems to me Sheriff Mack was there. We drank a lot of bottled water.
And media vans drove around us, but, none stopped or filmed. We didn’t fit the agenda.
For comparison, earlier that year, six (6) people met a couple State legislators on the steps of the capitol to discuss something to do with abortion. THIS made state and national news.
Who are the most powerful persons in any newsroom? The assignment desk and the editors.
It’s all about the agenda.
Or, this just in…WWII Veteran Dies After Parking Lot Beating
No, wait. I’m not bringing THOSE REAL WORLD items up.
I’m talking about history repeating itself. Well, sort of.
Not exactly history, but a theme.
The theme of the Michael Caine film Harry Brown.
You know! The movie where Michael plays an old man (typecasting) who sees London failing around him – graffiti, gang activity, drug abuse. London looks more like Detroit in this movie! Then his best friend gets killed by
a gang misguided yutes. And Harry is alone.
And he decides to revisit HIS youth. Not as a misguided yute, but as a Royal Marine. (!)
You can guess much of the rest of the film. Call it Death Wish On The Thames.
An old man taking back his life by taking direct action against the unintended consequences of the ever-encroaching societal fixes imposed by a socialist regime. (like gun control and a broken judicial system)
Safe to say, it’s powerful stuff. My only complaint is with the heavy accents, subtitles would help us to understand the English.
Of course, the movie got scant play here in the Colonies. I wonder why?
From Fox News:
. . . The plot successfully faked names and signatures on both the Obama and Clinton presidential petitions that were used to place the candidates on the ballot. So many names were forged — an estimated 200 or more — that prosecutor Stanley Levco said that had the fraud been caught during the primary, “the worst that would have happened, is maybe Barack Obama wouldn’t have been on the ballot for the primary.” . . .
In court, former longtime St. Joseph County Democratic Chairman Butch Morgan, Jr. was sentenced to one year behind bars, and is expected to serve half that, as well as Community Corrections and probation. Former St. Joseph County Board of Elections worker and Democratic volunteer Dustin Blythe received a sentence of one year in Community Corrections and probation, which means no jail time. . .
AND, yesterday, the United States Supreme Court decided that Arizona elections officials violated federal law by requiring voter registrants to provide proof of United States citizenship when registering to vote (via the AZ Motor-Voter Law only).
So, in theory, this decision only affects those States that allow illegal aliens to possess Driver Licenses…
Think this’ll be a problem ?
NAW. (I’m kidding)

Authorities have identified 19-year-old Matthew Sykora of Yuma as the teen who came across an armed homeowner in the middle of the night during a possible home invasion.Yuma County Sheriff’s deputies arrived to the home in the area of S. Avenue D and County 14th at 1:22 a.m. to find the Yuma teen dead from a single gunshot wound.Sheriff deputies said the homeowner called 911 to report being woken up after hearing sounds in the home.
The homeowner has not been named.
Records show, this was not the teen’s first time in trouble with the law; in January of 2012, Sykora was charged with felony counts of theft and fraudulent schemes.
