Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

The Preacherman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a gun and learn how to shoot." The Gunman says, "My advice to you is to get yourself a Bible and learn how to pray."

Hermann Goering’s gold plated Walther PPK is for sale




It is expected to draw around $50,000 at auction.  Click HERE for the story.


Law enforcement kissing up to facial recognition technology


My friend Steve recently reviewed this interesting article.  My guess is that the government will be spending billions of dollars on facial recognition hardware and software to protect us from the omnipresent bad guys.  However, even the dumbest bad guys are already thinking a few steps ahead of big brother and Big Sis.


More Homeland Insecurity


It turns out that the highly praised BioWatch system just plain sucks.


Homeland Insecurity


Big Sis may need a bit more focus on housecleaning.

Pepper spray may be one of your last great acts of defiance


She fought for her life with pepper spray, her hands, and even her attacker’s knife.  May she rest in peace, and may the predatory bastard someday burn in hell.


EDIT:  Glenn B sent the following via comments and email.

So, when I clicked on the link in your blog post about pepper spray being a last defense, I was immediately notified that Norton blocked a virus attack called Mass Injection Website II and said it was initiated by a site called thegunzone.com at 206.188.193.96,80. If you have been to that site, you may want to check your pc for viruses or malware.

All he best,

AG Eric Holder has no balls


Hell, all along I was charitably thinking that he just does not have a brain.  The man is playing out of his league.

The key word is SECURITY


Goodness sakes alive; imagine that.  ANOTHER LOSER, this one with strong views about something or other, gets himself a quality semi-automatic handgun with some spare magazines full of ammo and heads out for what looked (to him) like another surefire mass shooting.  A SECURITY GUARD (UNARMED no less) heroically ended the attempt. 

Now, I will agree that UNARMED security is probably only a wee bit better than having no security at all (unarmed security proved to be worthless during the Colorado Theater massacre).  HOWEVER, I am convinced that the presence of armed security can change the minds of many armed miscreants, and minimize the effectiveness of those hell-bent on going through with their delusional plans.

Sagulite


I was sitting inside a Dunkin Donuts when in pranced my inspiration for what I thought would be a new word.  I was going to write the definition as “The loose flesh and cellulite on a hottie old woman's butt that hangs out the back of her way too short shorts.”  Later in the day, I Googled my new word only to discover that others had already laid claim to it.


Safe on Mars!

Woo hoo!!

This is the greatest engineering feat EVAH!


Bound for Mars

I have one browser window open for typing this, and two others monitoring LIVE coverage of the NASA Mars landing.

It is no less exciting than the early NASA days when I was MUCH younger.

Five Years of Retirement



Five years ago today was the last full day of gainful employment in my middle-class life.  So far, retirement has gone as planned, notwithstanding our local, state, and federal government’s enthusiastic attempts to redistribute poverty.  

I’d be very honored if you all would CLICK HERE and read my one-year-of-retirement blog entry.  By golly, time sure does fly by.

Retirement was my destiny.  I was born lazy, with talent enough to be very successful at doing nothing at all worthwhile; kind of like Congress.

See you on the patio.
