13 Politically Incorrect Gun Rules

Saturday, January 28th, 2012

1. Guns have only two enemies rust and politicians.

2. It’s always better to be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

3. Cops carry guns to protect themselves, not you.

4. Never let someone or something that threatens you get inside arms length.

5. Never say, “I’ve got a gun.” If you need to use deadly force, the first sound they hear should be the safety clicking off.

6. The average response time of a 911 call is 23 minutes; the response time of a .357 is 1400 feet per second.

7. The most important rule in a gunfight is: Always win – cheat if necessary.

8. Make your attacker advance through a wall of bullets . . . You may get killed with your own gun, but he’ll have to beat you to death with it, because it’ll be empty.

9. If you’re in a gunfight:

– If you’re not shooting, you should be loading.

–  If you’re not loading, you should be moving.

–  If you’re not moving, you’re dead.

10. In a life and death situation, do something . . . It may be wrong, but do something!

11. If you carry a gun, people call you paranoid. Nonsense! If you have a gun, what do you have to be paranoid about?

12. You can say ‘stop’ or ‘alto’ or any other word, but a large bore muzzle pointed at someone’s head is pretty much a universal language.

13. You cannot save the planet, but you may be able to save yourself and your family.

Obama’s Energy Policy

Saturday, January 21st, 2012

Let’s review our Dear Leader’s Energy Policy.

He killed the Keystone pipeline, killing thousands of jobs and putting America’s energy supply at risk.

He had his eye on Brazilian oil, but it looks like the Communist Chinese are going to be on the fast track to get it.

Obama Forbids Uranium Mining on Federal Lands In Arizona for Next 20 Years

North Dakota Stuck Using More-Costly Railroads to Move Oil. “Right now, about 25% of North Dakota’s oil travels by rail. According to the CBS News report that ‘will increase exponentially with increased oil production and the shortage of pipelines.’”

Our Dear Leader is clearly against any  proven technology and isn’t as really into alternate technology as his leftist supporters wish he was.  His history with alternate technology more in line with Solyndra, which was much more of a political payoff than a good investment of taxpayer money.

Update: The Obama EPA is shutting down an oil refinery that will likely drive up gas prices in the Northeast.  Higher energy prices is a goal of the Obama regime, so no one who has been paying attention should be surprised by this.

Friday B-Movie Pick: Jonah Hex

Jonah Hex

I caught most of this turkey on cable and oh, it was sooooo bad. Bad acting, bad scrip and Megan Fox. Even a dial in performance by John Malkovich (and a Malkovich dial in is still pretty good) couldn’t help this truely bad film. OK, decent special effects, but a bad film none the less.

“Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.”

William F. Buckley

Liberal “Logic”

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

In the fantasy world of the left, crony capitalism under the banner of a jealous Gaia = private equity firms.

Reality never really was their strong point.

Quote of the Day

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

Obama wasn’t experienced enough to be President. He’s in over his head.

The blue social model is killing Europe and the three states closest to bankruptcy are California, New York, and Illinois.

Anyone who would spend time rationalizing Obama’s failure is as crazy as the guy who was obsessed with Sarah Palin’s uterus.

Colossus – The Forbin Project

HT to my friend John for reminding me of this Cold War era classic. A 1969 spin on the classic Frankenstein story, except this time it’s with highly “intelligent” super computers running the nuclear arsenals of both the United States and the Soviet Union.
