They're cops goddam it all, they are supposed to be held to a higher standard. And they're failing miserably.
You do not have a right to feel safe. You do have a right to actually be safe. This is, however, an unsafe world thanks to the laws that prevent mass chlorination of the gene pool. If there's no immediate threat to anyone or anything other than the steak, then in no way shape or form should law enforcement be involved in this. You should be able to cut a birthday cake, or a steak. As long as you don't threaten anyone.
I think there should be a loud outcry of protest over this kind of bullshit.

Who takes the time to remember and honor the veterans of WW2 anymore? We all should because if they hadn't done their duty, then the west half of this country could be speaking Japanese while the east half spoke German.
As you're out and about and you remember to approach a Vet and thank him or her, don't forget the WW2 era vets. Take the time to talk with them and benefit from their wisdom and memories. It will be time well spent and their efforts kept us free from the tyranny that was Japan and Germany of the day.
If you are or know a WW2 vet, know that I salute you. Thank You for what you gave to keep this free country free. Know also that I honor your dead. I am proud of each and every one of you.

What do you do when you're with your loved one(s) when you're confronted by a goblin?
If you're me, then my first priority is to get my girlfriend to safety. In my own mind, if I have to sacrifice my life to do this, I will. Her safety comes first. Now when I'm alone, the only one dying is the goblin, no doubt about that, but I put my girlfriend above me on the must survive list. I'm a sheepdog that way.
So, let me ask a question or 2 here. When was the last time you took your girlfriend or wife or whatever, to the range with you? What? She's never heard your gun fire? Bad, bad shooter, bad, no bone. Take your significant other (S/O) to the range with you. Even if said S/O doesn't shoot, they should watch you shoot and most importantly, they should experience your gun firing. Why, you ask? Simple. What was your first reaction to hearing a gun fired? Think about it. Now admit it, you froze. You did didn't you? You bet you did, and you don't want your S/O to freeze when the black flag goes up. So take your S/O with you and have her nearby while you shoot so that he/she is used to the sound of your gun.
Next, now that she's familiar with gunfire and doesn't freeze when a gun goes off in close proximity, you have to teach her about the tactics that you intend to employ. She needs to know where you're going to go. You don't want to move and run over her, tripping yourself up, nor do you want her to just stand there while you're putting distance between you and the goblin. You need to teach her how you're going to move so that she can either...move with you or move in an opposite direction possibly distracting the goblin for you. Whatever you decide to do, you need to do it in advance so that you have some kind of a plan before the stuff hits the fan. If you have kids, the whole picture changes, she needs to get those kids the hell out of there and fast. You become the delaying action that keeps the scum off your family so they can escape to safety.
Eventually, you may want to teach her to shoot and get her her own CPL so that she can also engage the goblin. That may be down the road some, but it would be nice if eventually, if she's the "I won't leave your side" type, she can handle your gun if you go down. I'd rather that mine just ran and kept running until the shooting stops then call 911 but your mileage may vary.
Any way you choose to go, your S/O must know to stay calm. What to do and where to go. Most importantly, don't freeze on the first shot, just do what you need to do to be safe. We carry to protect ourselves and our families. While you're training to protect you, you need to train to protect them as well.

I followed all of the given directions for joining the People of the Gun and even sent 3 different e mails to 2 different given e mail addresses and I never got added. I'm either too ugly or too uncool I guess as that was 2 weeks ago and nothing. So I guess I'll just get out a crying towel and sit over in the corner and cry a while.
Or, I'll just keep doing what I do and if they don't want me then :P

I like law enforcement officers generally. During my 12 year EMS career, I hid behind a bunch of them. Most are professional enough but still quite human. Some, like the idiot in this article seem to have forgotten that their job requires them to behave to a higher standard. As a law enforcement officer, you need to set the standard for behavior for the community. Act the way you would prefer the community to act. I would bet you'd never catch the LawDog being stupid like this, he helps set the standard.
OK, here we go:
Police said Thursday an off-duty Chicago police officer has been charged in connection with a crash that killed two men in their early 20s. According to a Chicago police department statement, John Ardelean, 33, was charged with one count of DUI and driving left of center stemming from the crash that occurred in the 2900 block of North Damen Avenue at approximately 3 a.m.
Wait, wait, wait....he got charged with driving left of center? Shit...you could charge the whole state with that.

There's lots of great tips in this little missive and you should take all of them to heart. Try to remember some of the most important little rules when traveling our nation's highways.
1. Route yourself around GFW states like Illinois and Wisconsin. If they won't let you carry, don't go there.
2. Keep your head on a swivel. There is no excuse for someone sneaking up on you.
3. Practice, Practice, Practice. Have someone behind you screaming in your ear. Shoot on the move. Practice rapid reloads. The more you sweat in training, the less you bleed in combat. Ratchet up the stress on your practice time.
4. Take the time to sit with your loved ones and explain to them precisely what you want them to do if the black flag goes up. In all of the writings I have seen on defensive shootings, I very rarely see any that address this. Your loved ones have to know what to do if you get encountered by a bad situation. You need to know where they're going to go and they need to know where you want them to go. That is for everyone's safety. Your and theirs. In that situation, you're drawing your weapon to protect your loved ones, make sure they know what to do also.
I don’t carry a gun to scare people. I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.
I don’t carry a gun because I’m paranoid. I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.
I don’t carry a gun because I’m evil. I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.
I don’t carry a gun because I hate the government. I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.
I don’t carry a gun because I’m angry. I carry a gun so that I don’t have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.
I don’t carry a gun because my sex organs are too small. I carry a gun because I want to continue to use those sex organs for the purpose for which they were intended for a good long time to come.
I don’t carry a gun because I want to shoot someone. I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.
I don’t carry a gun because I’m a cowboy. I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.
I don’t carry a gun to make me feel like a man. I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.
I don’t carry a gun because I feel inadequate. I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.
I don’t carry a gun because I love it. I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.

It didn't use to be that way. I may re-think this association.
So Teddy has a press release all pretty and flowery already released, the link to that is here. I think I may go through this with you.
In his book, Private Guns, Public Health, David Hemenway from the Harvard Injury Control Research Center observed that, “Each day guns were used in the commission of about three thousand crimes. The U.S. rates of death an injury due to firearms and the rate of crimes committed with firearms are far higher than those of any other industrialized country.”
I must have missed that, where did you get those statistics again? I believe you'll find them not quite true. By the way, how many violent crimes were stopped by the presence of an armed citizen?
Just last week, the International Association of Chiefs of Police – IACP – took a dramatic stand against the escalating gun violence in our communities – releasing a comprehensive report with 39 key recommendations to reduce gun violence. The Chiefs’ compelling report and specific recommendations are a clear call to action. Without further delay, Congress and the Administration need to do our part by enacting concrete reforms that will reduce crime and protect the safety of police officers and all Americans. We all know what needs to be done and it’s a scandal that we have done so little for so long.
We could do something to prosecute drunk drivers that kill people too. I don't think there's a statute of limitations on murder Mr. Kennedy. Let's take a look at these reforms shall we? Let's take a close look at the BS the leftards are spouting.
We need to close the gun show loophole once and for all.
What loophole is this? Licensed dealer to citizen is already taken care of.
We need to renew the assault weapons ban.
To do what? The last one did nothing more than ban cosmetics. It did nothing to reduce crime. Why do you idiots always need another law when the ones we already have aren't enforced?
We need to pass Senator Feinstein’s bill for stricter requirements on the sale of extremely dangerous fifty-caliber sniper rifles.
Yeah, so much more dangerous than anything else that you can see them being used in most of the really major crimes already because every criminal wants to try to lug a 40+ pound almost 5 foot long weapon stealthily into a spot with which to rob Mr and Mrs Jones.
We need to amend federal law to ensure that all cop killer bullets are banned.
Could we possibly get a few more buzz words into this article? Exactly which bullets are you referring to? A FMJ 30.06 round will kill a cop, or anyone else it hits. So will my .45 with a head shot. Which bullets are you trying to ban? Oh wait, you're a Democrat, the answer is all of them.
We need to do more to see that law enforcement has access to the newest and most effective crime-solving technologies – like microstamping.
Which I believe has already been shown to be of little use, horrendously expensive and unreliable.
The IACP’s impressive work in producing this ground-breaking report should not go ignored. I’m hopeful that we can work together, across party lines, to reduce gun violence, solve gun crimes, protect our police officers and do all that we can to make our communities safer. Perhaps our dialogue today will be one positive step forward in that direction.
The dialoge that will make our police officers and communities safer has already been written. In case you forgot it says....
THE RIGHT OF THE PEOPLE TO KEEP AND BEAR ARMS SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED!
People, take a look at all of the mass shootings in the last 10 years or so. You know what all of them have in common? They all took place in a "gun free zone". Yep, all those laws restricting gun carry sure do help don't they? ** cue cricket chirps**
Well, don't they?
Washington D.C. Law abiding citizens can't have guns. They are the murder capital of the U.S. Violent crime is skyrocketing.
Britan, gun ban. Parents are dressing their children in Kevlar School uniforms. Yep, look like it's working just fine. Violent crime is on the rise.
Australia, gun ban. Violent crime is skyrocketing.
Everywhere that guns have been outlawed, the outlaws have guns and are actively preying on the unarmed. This has to stop.
Doesn't that make sense to you? Elections are coming, don't you think it's time to vote out the idiots that pass these laws? We've given them a fair chance, it just doesn't work.
Here in Michigan, there's a group called the Michigan Coalition for Responsible Gun Owners and they actually have a business card on their website that you can hand to managers at businesses that don't allow guns informing them of why you are taking your business to a competitor that is 2nd Amendment friendly. We should all do this, everyday, everywhere. Start telling these people that we are all a hell of a lot safer when law abiding citizens carry. Don't forget to speak out when some gooney law enforcement person makes a dim witted comment about how "the officers never know who is in the car they pull over and they wouldn't be safe if Joe Average might have a gun". What a crock, they don't know who they're pulling over now. Joe Average is NOT going to turn into a raving felonious lunatic just because he's carrying a legal concealed pistol you moron.
Have you ever seen anything as true as this is? Yet the gun banners are so busy distorting the truth and adding 19 year olds in with the "dead child" statistics that they can't be bothered to actually look at the real truth. No gun ban has ever stopped a criminal from robbing and shooting someone. They're criminals asshole, criminals don't obey the law to begin with, what the hell makes you think they'll pay attention to one more?
Look, this is America. This nation was founded by armed citizens. Stop trying to remove our heritage. Stop trying to abrogate our rights. Stop being the domestic enemy I swore to protect the constitution from.

Over the last 3 months or so, I have started to notice that it has become very hit and miss over there. Sometimes, my posts pop up fairly promptly. Sometimes, they never appear at all. I'm starting to think that they may not love me anymore, or that they only love me part time (sounds like my ex girlfriend) and I'm not sure how to take that.
I think I'll give it a bit of time and see if things smooth out.
*** UPDATE ***
Everything I have posted today just popped up. Now I wonder if maybe one needs to post "X" number of things in a day to make the aggregator.
I don't carry a 5 shot snubby, being on the well........rotund side, I carry a Springfield Armory 1911 A1 Mil-Spec 5". That isn't to say that those that carry a snubby are wrong or silly, just that right now, I carry a full size 1911. Many of you, reading this now (at least, I hope there are many of you) may well carry a snubby and if so, rather that than nothing.
Many of you may not have thought too much about tactics with your snubby though. This article addresses that pretty nicely and I think it's damn important to go check it out. Farnam is pretty smart ya know.
It's from a blog called Common Folk Using Common Sense. I went, I saw, I liked, a lot. What I liked the most is that he linked me on his left hand sidebar. Well, let's look closer here...Oh Damn! He's a Rottie too? That's a link back, hell yes!
So, welcome him to the blogroll and visit him often, it looks like he has some great stuff up.

I am NOT going to defend Mr. Chapman in this. Nope, he should have known better or Beth should have smacked him in the head with a big steaming cup of STFU. What I am going to do is to point out the hypocrisy that is about to destroy a very popular A&E show while others get rich.
The "N" word. If you look it up in the dictionary it means:
- Main Entry:
- alteration of earlier neger, from Middle French negre, from Spanish or Portuguese negro, from negro black, from Latin niger
Dog said it in a private phone call that his son figured he could use to both trash Duane's reputation and possibly make a buck. That phone call is going to ruin Duane forever. In his apology he stated that he would never be forgiven for this. You're right Dog, your goose is cooked.
I want to ask why it's so wrong that Duane "Dog" Chapman said this in a private phone call yet at the same time, an untold number of Rap and Urban "singer/songwriters" and some "comedians" are using the same word publicly and not only is no one going absolutely ape shit crazy about it, but these people are actually making money from it thereby encouraging more of the same down the road? What's the deal with the double standard here? If this word is so heinous when uttered by a white man, then why is it not equally heinous when uttered by anyone else regardless of heritage?
If the word is so wrong, why has it not been abolished by the black community or the whole damn planet as a whole? I'm afraid that I just don't get it. If some well known black rap artist or comedian went to downtown Detroit or Chicago or some other urban area and said something like "hey niggas, get a grip on reality" most would laugh or applaud and maybe take some action. If I, as a white guy did it, I'd need to use the 1911 that I carry and use it well against multiple targets. So why the double standard? Why is it funny or even OK if one person says it, but so totally wrong if someone else does?
If the use of this word is so wrong, then let's just stop using it. If you can't bring yourself to do that, then stop being pissed off when someone else does.

I think it's a grand idea and the only ones that will bitch about it are the same ones that will cry "why didn't you do something to prevent this?" when their own little angel gets killed at school. The only appropriate answer would be, " We tried, YOU stopped us".
Anyway, it seems the British courts have shot the Goreacle's film full of holes and demanded that it cannot be shown in schools unless the lies are discussed. Ya have to love it.

New York said “yes,” but we said “no.” Why were the U.S. Marines denied permission to film a recruiting commercial on the streets of San Francisco? San Francisco is, once again, the center of a controversy over how city leaders treat the U.S. military. This time, it involves an elite group of Marines who wanted to film a recruitment commercial in San Francisco on the anniversary of 9/11.
The tension has been building in the two weeks since the city turned away members of the Silent Drill Platoon, and it boiled over Monday afternoon at a meeting of the San Francisco Film Commission. The U.S. Marine Silent Drill Platoon performed Monday morning in New York’s Times Square. They filmed part of a recruitment commercial through the start of the morning rush hour — something they could not do in San Francisco on the anniversary of 9/11. “It’s insulting, it’s demeaning. This woman is going to insult these young heroes by just arbitrarily saying, ‘no, you’re not going to film any Marines on California Street,” said Captain Greg Corrales of the SFPD Traffic Bureau.
Captain Greg Corrales commands the police traffic bureau that works with crews shooting commercials, TV shows and movies in the city. He’s also a Marine veteran and his son is serving his third tour of duty in Iraq. He says Film Commission Executive Director Stefanie Coyote would only allow the Marine’s production crew to film on California Street if there were no Marines in the picture. They wound up filming the empty street and will have to superimpose the Marines later.
“Ms. Coyote’s politics blinded her to her duty as the director of the Film Commission and as a responsible citizen,” said Captain Corrales.
Captain Corrales and several other Marine veterans came to the Film Commission Monday afternoon. They see this as just the latest insult along with the city blocking the USS Iowa from docking here, banning the junior ROTC from high schools, and trying to ban the yearly Blue Angels air show.
“This — a slap in the face of every veteran and every parent of men and women who are doing their duty — is shameful,” said Captain Corrales.
The Marines we spoke with also make the point that the city allows street demonstrations, anti-war protests and other events which snarl traffic, such as Critical Mass. They still don’t understand why the Marines got turned away.

NOT so Fun FactsI know people read this, so I thought I might put something here that maybe you can use.
Did You Know:
By age 50, 80% of US women will have or will have had a form of HPV? Genital warts kiddies. Approximetly 50% of all sexually active adolescents and young women will aquire HPV infection within the first 5 years of initiating intercourse. Studies suggest that 75% of all new infections occur among men and women between the ages of 15 and 24. Molecular studies have identified HPV DNA in 99.7% of cervical cancers. HPV usually infects areas outside the protection of a condom so condoms will NOT protect you.
People can have first stage syphillis and not show symptoms. Second stage syphillis looks a lot like the flu and the symptoms go away in 2-6 weeks. 3rd stage syphillis has no symptoms and you can't pass it on after the first year except to a fetus. Final stage syphillis leads to brain damage and death and 50% of the people who enter this stage die. It's usually easily treated with Penicillin.
The most frequent STD in North America. 10% of all college students are infected. If you have burning urination or any painful discharge you should be checked for this. It is treated with repeated doses of Erythromycin and Tetracycline.
Usually strikes the vagina, penis, rectum mouth and throat. The symptoms are burning pain or itching on urination, a discharge from the penis that is clear but changes to a thick milky discharge. Females usually show no symptoms but may develop a greenish-yellow discharge from the cervix or abdominal pain. This is treated with high dose penicillin or tetracycline.
Is a chronic viral infection that cannot be cured. Only it's symptoms are controlled. In females, fluid filled vesicles form on the cervix, labia, vulva, or perianal skin. On males, the vesicles form on the glans penis, the foreskin or the shaft. These vesicles usually take 3-7 days to erupt. This disease CAN be passed even during times when you are not showing symptoms or lesions. It is usually treated with medications like Valacyclovir (Valtrex) or acyclovir.
There's some NOT so fun facts for your consideration. Play Safe.

The opposition you will see comes from the same leftards that are going to scream "Why wasn't something done to prevent this?" when or --- forbid if something happens here. You see the same old leftard responses about the wild west and all of that nonsense.
Look kiddies, Muslim Terrorists used to shoot up schools in Israel. You know what stopped that? The Israelis armed their teachers.....with automatic weapons. We're talking about concealed handguns here. There's some nonsense in here about "well if one of the kids gets a hold of a gun..." How the hell is that going to happen if said gun is safely carried on the teacher's hip?
Stop screwing around and get the teachers armed. For that matter, let's go ahead and abolish ALL of the gun free zones in Michigan. There's a bill somewhere in committee for that too.

I am going to apologize to you all for not blogging regularly. I have gone back to school to become a pharmacy technician. I know right now that my current job is going to end in November, I just had a breakup with a woman that I would have taken a bullet for and I still pine for her. Life is just not going well for me and I just can't find anything that motivates me to blog.
Normally, I avoid personal stuff here, right now, I think that my few loyal readers deserve an explanation of why warthog's not writing. I'll get back to normal, but it will take me some time. Forgive me and bear with me.

Another shooting on school property. 4 students lined up and shot execution style. So, how's that law banning guns on school property working out? Not real fukkin well I see. It's time to abolish all the pistol free zones Nationwide. Stop creating criminal empowerment zones. These animals won't be nearly as brave if they know someone might just shoot back.

Seems like some Somalian mooselimb is all upset that he couldn't walk away from his job to go pray. Well, you weren't hired to pray dickhead, you were hired to do a job. STFU and do it. Here's a nice link from Kim Du Toit.
I'll tell you this, in addition to my personal boycott of all things Dell, I will boycott Swift foods also if they cave in to this bullshit. I said it before and I'll say it again...FUCK MULTICULTURALISM!
This is America dammit and no one forced you to move here, you came here of your own free will and therefore it is up to YOU to adapt to US, NOT the other way around. If you don't like that then please use one of your other freedoms.

The theory of creating distance is pretty common sense. The way he shows it would take a bit of practice to avoid tripping all over yourself and the theory he espouses about the amount of distance you gain is predicated on your attacker not moving also, Which I think is unrealistic.
His 40 degree to the rear movement is assuming you can get your gun out of the holster before you move. Again, not realistic. Crosstepping? Ok, you've practised it for years, I haven't, it's not gonna do me much good if the problem occurs while I'm going to practice. Switch back to cover the other 45 degree angle? While in combat? Taken by surprise? Not thinking about it? Yeah right, can you say trip all over both your left feet? Moving back at a 45 degree angle gets you out of the killzone 50% faster than moving straight back or laterally....Providing your attacker 1. Hasn't jumped all over you and is pinning you down, 2. That your attacker doesn't have a friend or friends behind you, 3. That your attacker stands still while you move. What about looking for some cover?
I think this guy tries too hard to find the right wording for his presentation. He seems to be very careful with how he words or phrases stuff. I would expect that from a person who is either unused to or greatly dislikes public speaking.
Let's go over video 2
I admit, I like the distraction idea. Take full advantage of normal human reactions.There's that damn crosstep again. He's trying to do too much. Some idiot just jumped out of the shadows at you. Under stress, you're going to lose all your fine motor skills and coordination. You need something simpler. The music is a bit annoying too.
I think he's trying to incorporate too much stuff into this. Some good ideas, the distraction is great as is the need to get away from the attacker. The style of movement should be your discretion though. The cross step just assumes you don't trip all over yourself and that your attacker stays still.

IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.Copy and pasted from Blackfive

I have three questions for those of you who would like to ban guns (though why you would be reading this I have no idea; my website must give you seizures).
You have to answer all three, in a logical and consistent manner; without emotional justification, circular logic, evasions, appeals to authority, statistics (most of the ones you would be quoting are false anyway, and I can prove it to you if you like), appeals to motive, or any other logical fallacy:
- You say you feel safer knowing that guns are banned; why is that?
- Do you recognize that when guns are banned, the only people carrying guns will be criminals (who ignore such bans because they are criminals. no law will stop criminals from carrying guns); and as such you are saying you're fine with criminals having guns but not law abiding citizens?
- Given this, do you believe that the mere possession of a gun turns a law abiding citizen into a criminal menace?
I wonder what the Rott would get?
Apparently, the reason for this is:
This rating was determined based on the presence of the following words:
- gun (3x)
- shoot (2x)
- dead (1x)
so, what's your point?

Ballistic Gel is a commonly used medium to test the performance of a bullet when striking something. It works pretty well because it allows you to see the path of the bullet and to see the expansion. Many people out there tout this type of testing as "gospel" when they tell you about how great their particular "magic" bullet is in taking down goblins.
It is a possible indicator, yes, I will give you that. Please note that I said possible indicator. It's not gospel as many would have you believe. They want to tell you that because of the gel testing, they know that their bullet will expand to "X" when it strike a human target. Maybe it will, maybe it won't and you won't know if it will or not until you (god forbid) drill a human in the chest with one.
The next time you take a shower, or bath if you prefer, please pay close attention when you wash your chest. You will feel the sternum, which is a very dense bone in the center of the rib cage. It's anywhere from 12 to 14 inches long, depending on your body structure, and probably an inch or so wide. It takes a hell of alot of force to fracture a sternum. Now feel around a bit more, you'll find your ribs. They really aren't very far apart are they? The parts you can't feel are inside, the vital life sustaining organs. Some muscle, some blood, some air.
Ballistic gelatin takes none of this into account. In the article, they covered the gel with 4 layers of denim. I live in Michigan, even in January, I don't see people wearing 4 layers of denim. They simulated a car door, that's nice, but how many times does a car door try to mug you on the sidewalk? I want to tell you something, I'll bet you $5 (figuratively speaking) that if you pop someone in the chest with a .45 ACP 230 gr. Hydra Shok round, you're going to hit bone, and the goblin is going down. Please keep in mind that I shoot the Springfield 1911 exclusively but I do have some experience with other weapons. You may also hit air pockets and areas that have blood. You'll hit bone and dense muscle tissue. I say again that ballistic gel takes none of this into consideration. Why do you think the military shoots animals for ballistic testing? Because, unlike what some of these people want you to think, ballistic gelatin does not accurately simulate what happens when you place hits on muscle, blood, air and bone, like what happens when you have to shoot a human.
I'm just saying that one needs an open mind when discussing bullet performance. One needs to take gel testing with a grain of salt. Yes, it does indicate what a bullet might do, but only an autopsy will tell you what the bullet actually did and that is likely to vary from incident to incident.
I also want to throw in here one other thing to remember. The .45 ACP was designed to take people down using 230 gr BALL not the hollowpoints available today. That, in a nutshell, is why I personally feel that the .45 ACP is the planet's premier handgun based combat round. This is my personal opinion.

Currently, congress is considering measures to do something about illegal immigrants who are flooding into our country. I'm going to be brutally honest here...They're eating up huge amounts of welfare. They're eating up jobs. They're eating up housing. Many of them are contributing to rising crime rates. Remember, I'm addressing illegal immigrants here. The ones that enter through the legal means are trying to build a new life and participating in our society and culture, the illegals aren't. They want to get a job where they won't be taxed and send that money back to their homeland so that more of their families can come over and sponge, or they intend to return and live a life of luxury from the money they sent back.
The government solutions include an amnesty for illegals. Look it over, that's what it is, plain and simple. These people will not be punished in any way shape or form for breaking US immigration laws. First, I urge you to hit my congresscritter finder on the sidebar, and voice your displeasure over this directly to your elected officials. Secondly, I urge you to urge them to take a real stand on the issue. We need secure borders. We need jobs. I said before that that non sense about illegal immigrants doing jobs that Americans won't do is just that, non sense, if the American gets hungry enough, he/she by god will do that job. When you contact your congresscritter, keep this list in mind, the folks on it voted against the amnesty measure.

I found this link to an estimated cost of this shamnesty measure here, take a look and think about it hard because you will be paying the bill.
You better take some action. The only thing that is really wrong with this country is that the people, We the People, have forgotten that we are the ones who are actually in control here. We have forgotten that the Government is supposed to be run by the people through their elected officials. That the one thing that makes our system of government work is the direct involvement of We the People. Why is Government fucked up? Because the people have stopped participating. The prefer to go with the flow and let stuff happen as it will, then they want to sit back and bitch because it's a mess. Get involved, help clean up the mess instead of bitching about it.

OK Congress, you want to do something to stop illegal aliens now? Can we have an open season where the citizen militia can round them up and ship them back? How about it leftards? You wanna ban guns to save the chillllllllddddddrrrrrreeeeeennnnnnnnnnn, how about banning illegal aliens for the same reason?
Read the Rott, as usual, the Emperor is right.

Having watched the video, here, I wanna shoot a couple holes in the theory. First off, the video supposedly came from Apollo 20...that mission was canceled. There were no Apollo missions after Apollo 17 (source). Second, the captions on the video are mis spelled, bad form what? Third, according to those captions, of which you can hear no voices, only static and badly timed chirps, the Lunar Module is communicating with Vandenberg, which is an Air Force Base. Mission control for space missions, even today, is Houston. They may occasionally speak to the Kennedy Spaceflight Center, but Mission control is in Houston, Texas. Third, the video makes on believe that the Lunar Module is orbiting this "spacecraft". Most of the moon landings were made under computer control. The fuel was very limited so no one would have been orbiting anything.
So, as the non expert that I am, based on what I know due to a lifelong love of all things spaceflight, I say this little video is a really sad hoax and some dipwad bought it hook, line and sinker.
Looks like this site has some more stuff on it, I may spend some time here.
A bill has been introduced in Michigan that will eliminate the gun free zones in the State of Michigan. The article in the link above has everything you need to contact your representative in Lansing. There is also a find you elected official widget on my sidebar.

I want to know who these fuck nozzles think they are. News flash there Achmed, you don't live in fucking Somalia anymore. This is the United States, we are NOT a Muslim country. AWWW, poor baby can't stop the whole plant's production to pray 5 times a day....tough shit.
Dell completely folded to CAIR, everyone's favorite terrorist supporting agency, and now managers have to go to sensitivity training. The really sad part is that the fuck nozzles in question actually walked off the job because they couldn't stop working and pray. Can you imagine what would have happened if any other religious group had walked out like that? They'd be told to go get a new job. Since these fuck nozzles have terrorist support, they get re-hired and everyone around them has to be conditioned not to hurt their little feelings.
So, I'll say it again...if you own a Dell, return it...If you need a new computer, may I recommend Gateway? I have 2 Gateways and they run like champs. In fact...you may want to know that this particular entry is being written on my desktop, which I bought back in 1999 and I have never had any issues with it. Fuck Dell, if they wanna cater to terrorists, then they can just go piss off.

Think carefully about how you interact with the world around you. Think about how you treat people and talk to them. The banners are always screaming about blood in the streets, the mature and responsible way in which you act every day keeps this to just so much idle crap. Think about how you act and help keep it just so much idle crap and hysteria.

Don't be sheeple, stand up for your rights at every turn.
I'm angry with the leftards who disarmed the student population. I'm angry with the leftards who dance in the blood of the innocent to the same tired old music. Fuck off! I'm not mourning anything, except maybe the fact that the leftards haven't gone off to find their own country yet.
We no longer teach anything but fear in our modern universities. There's no actual discussion of any issue or subject, just an indoctrination as to what academia feels is the way of things. We have no best thinkers because they are being culled out of the herd. We need to find a way to right that ship or our future is in deep peril.

I'll start with my favorite NHL team, the Dallas Stars. I want to start this by telling all the Turco haters out there to just go suck an egg. If the Stars check out in the first round this year, you can't blame Turco. Not this time. He's delivered. His team hasn't delivered the goals, plain and simple. Turco has kept them in every game so far including 3 shutouts and hasn't lost by more than a goal yet. He forced game 7 tonight with a shutout. If they don't advance, point at the rest of the team this time, it's not Turco's fault and I don't want to hear any shit.
Now I'll move on to my local team, the Kalamazoo Wings in the United Hockey League. They took out a tough Flint Generals team tonight to move to the conference championship game against an extremely tough Muskegon Fury team. Congratulations to the Kalamazoo Wings and my best wishes for them to win the conference and proceed to the UHL title series.
Then we move to the bleating of the traitors in congress. Telling anyone who will listen that the war is already lost. I thought treason was a death penalty offense? Of course you know damn well that charges will never even be brought. Damn shame too, that's a group hanging I'd like to attend. The PC (spit, spit) cocksuckers are too busy grilling the AG over firing a couple federal judges. Never mind the fact that the Klinton administration fired ALL of them, but that's OK because "Saint Bill" did it. But you let the Bush administration do it and OH MY GOD! The sky is falling. Two faced hypocrites.
And speaking of hypocrites, how about Rosie O'Doughnuts bleating her conspiracy crap without a shred of reason or evidence? Remember this is the same useless sack of shit that quit her job advertising for K Mart because they sold guns, but owns a gun and has an armed bodyguard. Oh it's ok for me, but you common people just can't have one. Fuck off fat swine.
I love my country, I really do. I am heartily sick of some of the scumbags that live here though. What makes it even sadder is that alot of those scumbags inhabit government. It's time for a change, but a change to what? What makes anyone think that the next bunch will be any better than the current infestation? Like I said, some days, it's just not worth chewing through the straps.

If you have a family member that attends VT, then my advice to you is to withdraw that student immediately and DEMAND a refund of your tuition. Until they change the rules to allow appropriately licensed people to carry their firearms with them, then fuck 'em. We're outta here prick. Communicate your desire for change by not letting them have your money.
For that matter, if you lost someone in this shameful debacle...First off, my heart goes out to you and I grieve for your loss...now sue the pricks for not letting the students protect themselves. I'd try negligent manslaughter...the school was negligent for not allowing properly licensed and armed students to protect themselves as they are allowed to under VA law and the 2nd Amendment of the US Constitution.

Students Shot in Classroom, Dorm at Virginia Tech
BLACKSBURG, Va. (April 16) — One person was killed and seven or eight more were shot in a dorm and in a classroom on the Virginia Tech campus Monday before police arrested a suspected gunman, officials told The Associated Press.
Police confirmed they had a suspect in custody, the university said on its Web site.
On the Web site, Tech confirmed the shooting at opposite ends of the 2,600-acre campus at West Ambler Johnston, a residence hall, and reported “multiple victims” at Norris Hall, an engineering building.
The university said in a news release there were multiple victims. Government officials with knowledge of the case said there were seven to eight other “casualties.”
Students were asked to stay in their homes away from windows.
“There’s just a lot of commotion. It’s hard to tell exactly what’s going on,” said student Jason Anthony Smith, 19, who lives in the building where shooting took place.
The shooting was reported at West Ambler Johnston Hall.
Officials ordered the campus closed, the second time in less than a year the 26,000-student campus was shut because of a shooting.
But, but .... guns aren't allowed on campus for the sake of student safety.
H/T The Voice
MSN.com news is now saying 22 dead. Take heart, your schools and Universities are SO much safer because no one can carry a gun. The students have no need of self defense, Father University will protect them.
Gunman kills 32 + himself. 1 armed student probably would have lowered that number a bunch.
Support the troops, participate with Soldier's Angels or anysoldier.com. When you meet one on the street, say Thank You and Welcome Home.
They're on the front lines of freedom, you're enjoying the fruits of their sacrifices, make sure they know how much you appreciate it.

I have to agree with some others who have opined that the only reason he got what he got was because it was a predominately black team, had it been a predominately white team and he had made a jab at them, most people would have laughed and said something like "damn, what a moron" and it would have been forgotten.
Thus is the double standard in America today. Young black rappers can throw nigga and hoe around like badges of honor but you let a white guy do it and it's racist hate speech. Michelle Malkin has an outstanding post up where she exposes rap lyrics for the hateful racist/sexist crap that they truly are. I personally have always found that genre of music to be hateful, sexist, racist, violent and obscene. Lacking talent is just icing on the cake.
I really think this is one of Michelle's key points:
One dumb radio/television shock jock's insult is a drop in the ocean of barbaric filth and anti-female hatred on the radio.
There have been lyrics glorifying the killing of police officers, rape, murder, holy christ, when does it stop? And every damn one of them want to be protected under the first amendment. Oh god forbid these black artists be charged with hate speech crimes that any white guy would be instantly charged with had he taken some of those same lyrics and changed them to kill blackie. Like I say, double standard. Remember your Orwell...some pigs are more equal than other pigs.
How come everyone demands Imus gets tarred and feathered when the mirror image of this has been happening in the rap community for years? It's bullshit and it need to stop. I'm sick of this fukkin PC (spit*spit) motivated crap. I'm sick of this double standard. I've met some people in the black community that have been extremely well spoken and intelligent. Wonderful role models for any child. Where's the rest of the community? I know that the average black person isn't like what you see in a rap video, at least, I sure hope not.
Where, black community, is your outrage over how your own sons and daughters are portraying your community? Have you no leaders that see the damage being done here? Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson are all about headlines, they are not your leaders. They wish only to spread hate and divide the problem even further. Where are the leaders of your businesses and your churches? Who stands up to say "Hey, this is wrong, our community isn't like this, stop"?
I don't know who this leader is, but I will say that I'll have a hell of alot more respect for your community if/when you find him/her.

When did the Sig P220 become a revolver?
What a bunch of dumbasses, where's the editor? Where's the base knowledge of the subject before one prints something?
The statement that really got me was this one:
TROY -- The Troy Police will switch to a new service revolver later this spring, Chief Nicholas Kaiser said.
As a special bonus, the writer's email address is available by clicking on his name at the top of the article. Just in case you wanna set him straight.**UPDATE**
He answered my email. I thought that was nice of him.
Thank you for your message. I spoke to an editor about it.
I used service revolver as a descriptive term about a weapon
issued to a police officer.
A clarification should run explaining that the Sig Sauer P220 is
