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.

Winston Churchill said
"A GENTLEMAN, SELDOM, IF EVER, NEEDS A GUN.
BUT WHEN HE DOES, HE NEEDS IT VERY BADLY!"
Si Vis Paceum Para Bellum

Sam Adams, more than beer

“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquillity of servitude than the animating contest of freedom, — go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen”
Samuel Adams

Lincoln on power

"We must prevent these things being done, by either congresses or courts — The people — the people — are the rightful masters of both Congresses, and courts — not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow the men who pervert it —" Abraham Lincoln

The War on Guns: Not Enough

The War on Guns: Not Enough



Just two days after Oregon Governor Kate Brown (D) signed expanded background checks into law via Senate Bill 941, Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly are pressing Democrats in Oregon’s legislators to go even further–to pass more gun control while they have the chance.



It's never enough. They get a little piece and as soon as they do, they are back for more. Giffords, Kelly, Bloomberg, they are all the same. They want their right to have guns and armed bodyguards while they want you and me disarmed. 

Another funny from Odie

I Tried . . . .


While strolling around the Harbor this morning 

around 7:00 a.m., I noticed a character shouting 
"Allah be praised" and "Death to all infidels" and 
suddenly he tripped and fell into the water. 


He was struggling to stay afloat because of all the explosives he was carrying. If he didn't get help, he would surely drown. Being a responsible citizen, and abiding by the law of the land that requires you to help those in distress, I informed the Police, the Coastguard, the Immigration Office and even the Fire Dept. It is now 11 a.m., the terrorist has drowned, and none of the authorities have yet responded. I'm starting to think I wasted four stamps.



A Need For More Tolerance...

Jigs McDonald, NHL Hall of Fame  broadcaster 
speaking in Ontario, says: "I am truly  perplexed that 
so many of my friends are against another mosque 
being built in  Toronto. I think it should be the goal 
of every  Canadian to be tolerant regardless of their 
religious  beliefs. Thus the mosque should be allowed, 
in an effort to  promote tolerance." 

“That is why I also propose that two  nightclubs be 
opened next door to the mosque, thereby promoting 
tolerance from  within the mosque.

We could call one of the clubs, which would be gay, 
'The Turban  Cowboy' and the other, a topless bar, 
would  be called 'You Mecca Me Hot'."   

“Next door should be a butcher shop that specializes  
in pork, and adjacent to that an open-pit barbecue pork 
restaurant,  called 'Iraq of Ribs'." 

“Across the street there could be a lingerie store  called 
'Victoria Keeps  Nothing Secret' with sexy mannequins 
in the window  modeling the goods and on the other side 
a liquor store called 'Morehammered'." 
"All of this would encourage Muslims to demonstrate 
the  tolerance they demand of us.

Yes we should promote tolerance, and you can do your  
part by passing this on.
And if you are not laughing or smiling at this point... 
it is either past your bedtime, or it's midnight at the 
oasis and time to put your  camel to bed."

Gun Bans No Longer Enough; Now They Want to Ban Gun Information

Gun Bans No Longer Enough; Now They Want to Ban Gun Information



They want to control all of the information. The people are to be denied, according to them. Obama and Kerry are just out of luck.

He's gone, finally

Our Grandson has finally moved out. I gathered up material and as soon as he got his stuff out, I converted the bedroom he had been occupying for the last two years into a sewing room. He's not coming back, period. Don't misunderstand, I love my grandson, but at 22 years old, it's time to get the hell out of the nest.


It took us all day Sunday and Monday to get to this point. 


I found a shelving system that has a rail that screws to the top plate at the ceiling and the brackets hang down and then you put screws into the studs for extra strength. 



Plus a pegboard section for all of her rulers and such. this was my mothers day present to her. 

 Busy couple of days. Tonight I'm hosting a weapons carry class so tomorrow I get to replace the engine on the rotor tiller. It sat for 3 or 4 years and the gas tank got full of rust. It runs fine until you start to till, then the crud still in the tank breaks loose and kills the motor. Harbor freight sent me a coupon book and they had a 6 1/2 horse engine for 99.00 with a coupon. To replace the gas tank on a 30 year old tiller would cost that much. If I could even find one.

The Last Temptation Of The New York Times

The NY Times and their double standard.

When an event was held in Garland, Texas, last week that included a $10,000 prize for the best drawing of the Muslim prophet Mohammad, it was no surprise that many Muslims, particularly radical ones, would be upset. Considering that radical Muslims have spent a lifetime being upset, and in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attack, it also wasn’t shocking that two of them would attempt to kill everyone who dared look at what they didn’t want drawn. That’s the world we live in right now.

When an event was held in Garland, Texas, last week that included a $10,000 prize for the best drawing of the Muslim prophet Mohammad, it was no surprise that many Muslims, particularly radical ones, would be upset. Considering that radical Muslims have spent a lifetime being upset, and in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attack, it also wasn’t shocking that two of them would attempt to kill everyone who dared look at what they didn’t want drawn. That’s the world we live in right now.
What was surprising was the reaction to the attempted mass murder and how the blame went to those targeted for death more than the would-be killers.
The Associated Press actually tweeted out a link to a story on the aftermath of the event that read, “Pamela Geller says she has no regrets about Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest that ended in 2 deaths.” How dare the event organizer not apologize for “asking for it” by having an event where people draw, right?

The New York Times took the “she shouldn’t have worn such a short skirt to the bar” mentality to the next level.
The Times editorial board wrote an attack on the event under the name, “Free Speech vs. Hate Speech.” The people who run the “paper of record” actually wrote, “the Muhammad Art Exhibit and Contest in Garland, Tex., was not really about free speech. It was an exercise in bigotry and hatred posing as a blow for freedom.”
But wait, it wasn't all that long ago that the Times thought that people offended by people defiling their religion were wrong.

 In 1988, when the movie “The Last Temptation Of Christ” came out, many Christians protested its depiction of Jesus.  The Times had no time for religious sensitivities when it came to Christians being offended.The editorial entitled “Satanism in Hollywood,” contain the following paragraph:
Those offended by such works certainly have the right to condemn, to shun and to picket. But in a free Republic, where church and state are wisely divorced, critics have no sanction for censorship. It says something about the persistence of Pharisaism (''rigid observance of external forms of religion without genuine piety'') that some of the loudest voices denouncing distribution, like Patrick Buchanan, also trumpet their devotion to free speech and free markets.
Free speech is one of the main tenets of the founding of this country. That's why that was made the very first Amendment.  Free to speak your mind without fear of retribution. The freedom of the press to voice their opinion, and to demand a redress of grievances from the government. Pretty important stuff.

When taxpayers subsidized “Piss Christ,” the “art” consisting of a picture of a crucifix in a jar of urine, angry Christians were not only brushed off by the Times, the “artist” was praised and defended. “It is hard to believe that anyone whose faith is searching and secure would not be grateful for what Mr. Serrano has done,” the Times wrote.
While it seems like a long journey from defending attacks on religion when that religion is Christianity to explaining the perspective of those who would murder because their religion was “insulted,” it’s really not. The institution that described “Piss Christ” as “This religious emblem enveloped in a dreamy golden haze...” is the same one that wrote, “As for the Garland event, to pretend that it was motivated by anything other than hate is simply hogwash.”
Nothing like the good old double standard. It's OK to offend Christians, but don't you dare offend a muslim.  It's only free speech if the times approves.
