Know-it-all

(Via Claire Wolfe)

78 Skills Everyone Should Know.  I can legitimately claim 37, although some beg for more details, like #16, operate a ham radio, for example,  Would that be tube, hybrid or solid-state?  I can do 2 of 3 and probably the third as well; just never had the opportunity to try.  There are probably a dozen more I could do with minimal effort to learn.

I won't live long enough to learn them all.

Detroit, America's first third world city

I'm sorry, but the bankruptcy is old news.  Detroit's been bankrupt for years.  Proof's in the pictures.

Really, Mr. President?

(Via the Drudge Report)

"...Trayvon Martin could've been me 35 years ago."

So 35 years ago you were being thrown out of school, smoking pot and scheming to illegally buy a gun?

That's comforting.

Not a police state, part whatever

(Via the Drudge Report)

A warrantless search by Federal Marshals not in hot pursuit of anyone.  Fortunately, the homeowner was not shot.  No dogs were shot either, but probably only because none were present.

Nah, not a police state at all.

Not buying Stumblebum's BS

Now that the ZOMG Dangerous Gunz! Locator app has been well and thoroughly poisoned with bad data (and a big thanks to all the folks who took time to do so), the creator claims it's a honey pot.  And even though he is a gunowner hiz ownself, he's all butthurt that

...a smaller component of the community that sees any attempt at improving gun safety as an affront to their second amendment rights. Reasonable regulations that do not interfere with anyone’s second amendment rights – such as universal background checks and trigger locks when guns are unattended in the presence of children – are needed to help abate the gun violence epidemic in this country.

Um, no. We don't care for something that lets sanctimonious busybodies such as yourself judge us by whatever standards that you should decide should be enforced today.  We're perfectly happy to practice gun safety as embodied in Col. Cooper's Four Rules, and we're OK with locking up our guns when not in use (or carried, or by the bed at night).

See you later, Stumblebum.  Sorry this little escapade didn't help breathe any life into that moribund CV of yours.

I was hoping to be able to do more

I really wanted to put my thoughts out there on the following two videos from The Patriot Nurse.  Unfortunately, time is working against me at this point, so I'm just going to present them for you viewing pleasure.
