Blogroll additions

I've been remiss in not formally announcing these blogroll additions.

My newest addition is Gun Geek Rants. He walks where hoplophobes fear to tread. Guns and airplanes are two of my favorite subjects.

On the subject of zombies, the first is Zombaritaville. Popular songs with zombie related lyrics. It's a good chuckle. If you know anything about Zombies, they'll freeze in extreme cold. This poses a unique challenge for folks in the southern states. In Texas, KTZF should have a target rich environment.

New Jovian Thunderbolt
is another blogger you should check out. He's ready to defend against both mindless communist and zombie hordes. God help us if we have to defend against communist zombie hordes though.

Local to St. Louis is The Dana Show Dana has the coolest bumper music and is a major part of the St. Louis Tea Party.



I'm breathing +1

TOTUS is still President -1

Michael Jackson still dead +1

Teddy Kennedy still dead +1

Had a good day at the range yesterday +1

So thats 4 to 1 positive over negative. I am grateful. Time to make hay while the sun shines.

I was in an ornery mood today

So if you came from here. And if you didn't like what I said, here ya go. Damn, some people take this stuff waaaayy too seriously.

MMMM, set in stone I am,

Want.... Bad.....

I'm a Star Wars geek. Heck, I know the Millenium Falcon is a YT-1300 and made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. BTW Han shot first.

To Be Honest With You.....

I really despise that phrase. My bullshit detector goes off full tilt boogy. The whole sirens blaring and lights flashing begins in my head.

What? You weren't being honest with me sometime in the past? How can I trust you now? What makes you think I can believe what you are saying is true at any given moment?

Frankly..... that's another one that sends my bs detector to red alert danger imminent levels.

The root frank is meant to imply open honesty. Being blunt and maybe sometimes too much information. Please, maybe I don't want to know that you've decided to go commando for the day. See, too much blunt information.

You know...... NO! I don't know. That is why we are having this conversation. To exchange ideas and thoughts in a verbal manner. I listen to a lot of talk radio and the callers are always going on, you know, you know, you know!! Laura Ingram is the only one that will call someone on it on a regular basis. You know what? Good for her! Sorry, just poking a little fun even at myself, because frankly and let me be honest with you, this is quite fun.

Well, it's off to re-install the 2m radio back in the car and prepare for tomorrow's activities.

Stop the presses

Michael Jackson....

Still dead. Because God knows a pedophile pop star trumps even a Kennedy.

For a chuckle go check out Day By Day. Today Chris Muir is 'honoring' Teddy's legacy.

For Zombie Fun go check out Sluggy Freelance. Zombie head on a stick.

Oh yeah, I almost forgot, if I didn't say it before, screw political correctness. Wait I did, oh well, I said it again.

Misssouri Mayors join Bloomberg's coalition

Mayor Francis Slay of the city of St. Louis and Mayor Harold Dielmann of Creve Coeur are both signed on to this. The mayor's of both Kansas City MO and Kansas City KS are as well. Those two cities are closely tied socially and economically. I already know of Mayor Slay's position I e-mailed the Creve Couer mayor, the honorable Harold Dielmann to verify his involvement with Bloomberg's anti gun coalition. The text of my inquiry was this;
Mayor, I am writing to confirm that you are part of this group. I see that Creve Couer is on the list posted at the organizations website. I look forward to your reply. Best regards,

His reply through some intermediary, one Laverne Collins, was thus;

Subject: Yes. I am with you. H. L. D. Creve Coeur. Mo *

* note edited to remove my identification

Nothing in the body of the message and it was sent via crackberry. Funny how he assumes I agree with Bloomberg's group. There's a gun show Saturday. I intend to spread the word of his being part of this group.

Mayor's Slay and Dielmann, you are both in my geographic front yard. You both need to be ousted from office.

Get off your high fucking horse

Is the world we live in today full of whining bitches? Seriously? Sensitivity training so you don't offend someone. Politically correct speech as to not inadvertently offend someone . Using the word evolution so you don't offend the intelligent designers, or creationists or whatever they are calling themselves thse days. Using the term 'ethnic minority' can be construed as racist. Newsflash there Mr. and Mrs. PC two Mandarin Chinese in a room full of Kenyans would constitute an 'ethnic minority' Because A) they're Chinese and B) they're numerically the lesser of the two groups. Now me personally, I believe God created the world and on Sunday he said everybody take five. But if you're ass belongs to Jesus, don't cast the first stone. F-U-C-K POLITICAL CORRECTNESS!

Teddy Kennedy has kicked the ice bucket

You know, the one he used to keep his scotch on the rocks. Well, he has to go meet his maker and be judged before God. Good luck with that Teddy.

If I could create the republic of TOTCHISTAN PT. 1

Since our TOTUS has decided to remake the country in his image, I decided to lay out my own country and how I would want it set up.

We would be ruled by the golden rule

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

Some of the ten commandments

5 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
6 “You shall not murder.

8 “You shall not steal.

9 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.

10 “You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.”

Murder someone, their next of kin would have the option of a duel or trial. Did I mention that the judiciary would be of the free market. That's right, a mutually agreed upon judge who you pay to judge you. No appeal, and sentence carried out immediately. Capital crimes demand capital punishment. No lawyers either. You'd have to defend yourself. My law would be if you can't convey the meaning of the law in one single spaced 8 1/2 x 11 page or less, it won't become law. If you didn't pay attention in school for civics class, too bad, my country would be one of personal responsibility & personal accountability.

Steal something, same thing, duel or trial. punishment is loss of a hand. Makes you think twice, right?

Lie, and get caught at it? ditto, although I can see a duel being the more popular option.

Everyone would be encouraged to own firearms. You could own any kind of weapon you wanted to. Including air-fuel bombs if you were so inclined. I might draw the line at nuclear weapons, but it's on the table for now. See where this is going? Good, now when I stage my coup, remember who dreamt all of this up. more soon.

Complete that Right Wing Militia look

You can buy an evil gas guzzling SUV and your EBR all in one place. The St. Louis Hummer Dealer is now part gun store. I knew that there was something afoot when the boss' husband came in and told me that they were putting in a firing range at this place. I figured a pro shop as well. Went in there after work this afternoon to check it out. As you walk in the front door, a four sided glass counter holds the pistolero offerings as well as those of a bladed variety. A nice selection of Glocks, Rugers, Taurus', Sigs, H&K's, and a smattering of other manufacturers. The Sigs seemed to be priced high, with only two models south of a four digit price tag. I don't know, maybe they didn't give the Sig rep a great deal on his H2. Two entire rooms dedicated to EBR's and shotguns respectively. The EBR prices seemed fair to high in a couple of cases. The shotguns were Brownings and Benellis. I don't know about shotgun pricing so I won'teven hazard a guess. A fair selection of ammunition as well, and priced competitively with other gun stores in the area. They won't touch the Walmart across the highway though. I say good luck to them and I'll pop in from time to time. There was that Barrett sitting there......

Quit being a whiny little bitch

Not that my regular readers are by any stretch of the imagination.
For your daily dose of rant go read this.
I wouldn't want that lady pissed at me.

Also, check out the Zombie Defense Coalition links. I'm always up for zombie related links, so if you got em, send em my way.

Addressing Saul Alinsky's rules for radicals

I've been studying Saul's rules. #5 particularly hits home for me.

RULE 5: "Ridicule is man's most potent weapon." There is no defense. It's irrational. It's infuriating. It also works as a key pressure point to force the enemy into concessions.

I know something about ridicule. As a child I had three strikes against me. One, I was overweight. I still am. Getting called lard butt. fatso and the like. Two, I've worn corrective lenses since I was in first grade. Four eyes was the most common moniker I was hung with. Third was that I wet my bed, and sometimes my pants. At the time, it was an intensely shameful thing. I've come to realize that I have nothing to be ashamed of. I was called Lee the Pee.

I've embraced who I've become. The good, the bad, and the no longer ugly little secret I used to carry. I can laugh at myself. I don't give power to those who choose to try and demean my physical limitations. Nor do I give power to those who would attack my ideas. Call me a Nazi for opposing health care reform, then give me a brown shirt and I'll click my heels gladly and bark "Heil Reagan!" Hang the moniker on me of right wing extremist, and I'll gladly open carry my weapon where it is legal to do so. Tell me that by dissenting I am somehow not patriotic, then call me a traitor. I'll stand pround as I'm put up against the wall.

In the movie A Clear and Present Danger, Jack Ryan advises the president to state that the murdered political ally of his was not only a friend, but a close friend. He embraced the negativity and it became a non-issue. He gave the press nowhere to go. Tom Clancy definitely got that one right.

If someone verbally attacks you personally, if they ridicule you about something that is true, like owning guns, state "Yes I do, would you like to go shooting with me sometime?" It disarms (pardon the pun) their attack. All they can say is no. They look pretty stupid continuing to attack you when you've offered them friendship and a chance to try something new. There is a defense for it. Embrace their ridicule. Wear it proudly, like a badge of honor.

Paul Helmke is one sad panda

I woke up this morning to read this. When the .gov says it's ok for someone to carry a loaded weapon in the same general vicinity as the president, the planet's must be aligned or something.
I don't know quite how to respond. I'm not certain but this may be some kind of feint. There is something else going on. Maybe that's a bit tin foil hattish of me. So be it. I hope not.

Stay classy Elizabeth

A local St Peters MO woman has been charged under Missouri's new cyberbullying law. Story here.

From stltoday.com

"Missouri's harassment law, which took effect last August, covers threats or communication that cause emotional distress, including electronic messaging on computers, text messaging and e-mail. Statewide, felony charges have been filed in other cases since the new cyber-harassment law was enacted. In the Meier case, Banas said no state law applied at the time."

Bad judgement, you betcha! Emotional distress? I don't know, some girls might like that kind of attention. Personally I would find a picture of some anonymous guy's genitalia being e-mailed to me extremely creepy. I am a guy and don't lean that way anyway. However, the teenager telling the forty year old woman to grow up obviously caused her enough 'emotional distress' to post the teenager's personal contact info on Craigslist.

I smell a constitutional challenge to this sometime in the near future.

The hoops one must jump through

To hunt zombies in The Land of Lincoln.

From the CZ Forum Site;

I live in Illinois so the Zombie abatement referendum ZAR-56 rules require that any Zombie that forcefully breaks into my home must be actively attempting to bite myself or one of my family members before any type of action is taken which might cause harm to the Zombie.

I must say in a loud clear voice "Leave now Zombie, I understand that you are underprivileged and only looking for food but you have invaded the quarters of a private citizen and I ask you now that you please leave our humble abode" this must be repeated three times.

If after the 3rd warning the Zombie has not retreated I may then fire a warning shot. If after 5 seconds the warning shot has not deterred the Zombies advances I may fire to wound the Zombie in one of it's appendages limited to either one hand, not to be the predominate hand the Zombie uses to write checks to the democratic party election fund or in either shin no less then 3 inches above one foot but no closer then 15" below the knee. I must then wait for a minute to see if the wounding shot has taken any effect.

If after a minute the Zombie persists I may then take a killing shot provided I fill out form A-325 sections 3 through 47 in triplicate, have said forms notarized before 2 witnesses one of which must be a Zombie unrelated the Zombie that is involved in the altercation, mail 2 copies of form A-325 off to Springfield and wait for my Zombie termination license to arrive at which time the license must be approved by the local police department.

So, yeah, I got that going for me, which is nice.

This is full of WIN covered in AWESOMESAUCE!!!

This photo has captivated me (NSFW)

I think it has to do with an armed woman. The whole idea of the lioness protecting her cubs, the mother protecting her childrenor the queen defending her realm. Oh, the nudity is pleasing and adds an element to the photo. I think it's the look on her face and the sword partway out of the sheath. I've adopted it as my background on both my PC and my netbook. I found the photo here

Asking a cop about marksmanship....

Is like asking your priest about what to do in the privacy of your own bedroom. The issue of whether or not to allow an armed citizenry on school campuses in Missouri is being discussed.

""We rely on the police, but, unfortunately, they are not on sight all the times and aren't there, maybe when they're needed the most," said Rep. Brian Munzlinger, (R-Williamstown.) "

But you can bet armed teachers, administrators, and at the college level, students would be able to respond.

“If the students realize that every school principle has a gun, then who's gonna be the first target?" said David Jungmeyer, a Calvary Lutheran teacher. "

Two things, allow every adult at the high school level the option to carry. Sorry Mr. Jungmeyer, life is all about risk. You can mitigate that risk by going armed.
If I am going to be a target, I'm gonna be a reactive one.

Skeptics in the law enforcement community say the weapons permitting process does not red flag the people it should.

"Most of those individuals, if not all, will pass a criminal background check," said Sgt. Kim Vansell, University of Central Missouri.

Again, living your life is risk. Would Missouri law enforcement deny us the right to self defense? Sgt. Vansell is correct, no system will catch everything. I'm going to take my chance that the states imperfect system will catch what it was designed to. Previous felons.

Other officers say arming everybody makes it harder for them to tell the good guys from the bad guys.

“And when you have multiple people potential pulling out guns, that's gonna totally go against our training and potentially create a chaos that we may not be prepared to handle," said a police officer in the audience.

You might not have to handle anything other than the aftermath of an armed citizen stopping the bad guy from shooting 10 people versus the 20-30 in the time it took you to get there.

Here's the shocking truth though. A law enforcement official who understands a citizen's first line of defense is themselves.

Sheriff White argued that armed civilians on campus have the potential to end the threat quickly. And he stunned the room with this assertion.

"In actual shootings, citizens do far better than law enforcement on hit potential,” said White. “They hit their targets and they don't hit other people. I wish I could say the same for cops. We train more, they do better."

It's shaping up to be an interesting legislative session in Jefferson City here in the Show Me State. Stay tuned as the story unfolds.

Fighting Back

Straight Forward in a Crooked World looks at when it's ok to confront someone who has invaded your personal space. Moving from condition yellow to condition orange and finally to condition red, he states is very hard due to conditioning of the person upon whom has the attention of the bad guy. An "I hope I never have to..." thought that leads to a moments hesitation.

Explain to me how a black man is a racist

When he opposes another black man's political philosophy.

Six people were arrested at a town hall meeting held by Representative Russ Carnahan last night. Carnahan says the meeting was scheduled to educate senior citizens on Medicaid and Medicare issues but hundreds of people turned out to discuss health care reform. Police arrested two women and four men following confrontations outside Bernard Middle School in Mehlville. Some of those arrested were reportedly involved in an attack against a 38-year-old African American conservative activist. Kenneth Gladney said one of his attackers, also a black man, used a racial slur against him before the attack. Gladney was treated for several injuries ...

Gladney was handing out Gadsen flags when this occurred. Raw video here

Thank you for flying congressionalair

Where we aim to bend you over, er where we bend over backwards to bend you over.
The airline that stinks to high heaven of privilege and pork.

I seriously doubt that our congress critters are gonna give this up. So, I have a soution to screw congress out of use of these. Generate tasking orders for these aircraft that have them flying non coms and their families for reunions.

I don't care what this picture represents

When the zombies come, I still will be at the top of the pyramid.

Newsflash!! Local St Louis radio host has pictures of the angry mob!

Dana Loesch has it here.

Dear Vitran Express

Your guy delivering in Chesterfield MO today. Slovenly. Seriously? Untucked shirt and a spare tire that would fit your truck hanging over his shorts. Talk about Dunlop disease. It done lopped over his belt.

I have to pull my own pallet off the trailer also. After he pulls his pallet jack off the truck and wants to leave the crappy pallet at my place. No Thanks. And damn, the trailer smelt like a nest of rats used it for their personal urinal. Now I was willing to let all that go. Nope, the straw that broke the camel's back was that I had to sign twice on your bill of lading. Mr. Dunlop couldn't even sign his name on his paperwork to let me know which one to sign. Kthxbi.

Kit Bond will vote to confirm Sotomayor

It's not like I can do anything in 2010. He's already confirmed he's through with the Senate. We'll see what the NRA has to say about the next conservative candidate for his seat.

Hey there whitehouse.gov

Flag me as a right wing extremist for dissenting against your porkulus bill.

Put a check mark next to my name in your file of gun owners

Use Saul Alinsky techniques to ridicule and isolate me and my fellow Tea Party Members.

Crank up MSNBC, CNN, the Washington Post and the entire .gov media machine to downplay what the majority of this country wants, no DEMANDS!!!

Just know this, you'll reap what you sow. In 2010, to quote the Reverend Wright, your chickens will come home to roost.

Russ Carnahan

You little cockroach...

You invoke the spirit of Truman, you can't stand the heat, and yet you're still in the kitchen.

You'll rue the day politically, mark my words.

So, you're a twenty something year old woman

And you have a decision to make.

12 months hard labor in a North Korean camp


a twenty hour flight..... with Bill "I didn't have sexual relations" Clinton...... alone

I'd seriously be considering that hard labor. Just sayin'

The fruits of my labor

The benchwork is done.....

The press is mounted.....

The dies adjusted....

The cases deprimed, reprimed, sized and charged....

Bullets seated....
