Some Perspective. . .

The worst mass-killing at an elementary school didn’t occur last week – and it didn’t involve a gun. On May 8, 1927, 55-year-old Andrew Kehoe detonated multiple homemade bombs at the Bath Consolidated School in Clinton County, Michigan. At about 8:45 in the morning, the first of the bombs went off, destroying most of the…

If Guns Are “Bad”….

If guns are bad, how come: All high politicians – including Dear Leader and Gauleiter Bloomberg – are surrounded by heavily armed guards? There is never a mass shooting at a police station? There is virtually no “gun crime” in Switzerland, even though the Swiss are armed to the teeth, with full-auto military  combat rifles…

A Dark Road Lies Ahead

Cheaper Than Dirt is (well…was) a great site.  It was a place to order bulk ammo to target shoot and find good deals on almost anything firearm related.  I was looking to buy a few more Magpul PMags and check out some AR’s so I went online.  I went to CTD and found that they are no longer…

Kyle Reese… and Reinhard Heydrich

In the original Terminator movie, Reese – the heroic resistance character sent to our present from a horrific future in which machines tyrannize humanity – displays a bar code embedded on his arm to convince Sarah Conner he’s not nuts and that his story is all-too-real. The bar code, of course, is used to scan…

Get Ready…

Because here it comes. The bodies weren’t cold before the slaughter perpetrated by a single homicidal maniac became the basis for calls to slaughter the rights of millions of non-maniacs. That’s us, in case you missed it. That 27 are dead is horrific, a nightmare. That the deaths of these innocents will be used to…

Creative Resistance

About two years ago, I stopped renewing the registration for several of my bikes (I have five). Basically, all the ones that aren’t antiques (which have one-time-fee “permanent” tags in my state). I just got sick of sending in $50 per bike per year. On top of everything else. On top of the taxes I…

Bad Boy!

When I leave my gym, there’s a red light at the intersection that literally takes five minutes to change. Often, it will skip the green arrow for people waiting to make a left turn from the side street (that’s me). You are supposed to wait for the next cycle. Another five minutes away. I routinely…

The Virtue of Pressure

How much would the average new car cost if the least expensive new car you could buy cost around $5,000? Probably, a lot less than the current average (2012) of just over  $30,000. Yeah, you read that right – and it’s up more than $1,200 from 2011. Part of the reason for the ballooning cost…

Breaking Through

Lenin asked, “What is to be done?” The question facing liberty-minded people almost 100 years later is the same. But our answer should not be Lenin’s answer – violent lashing out. I get e-mails from readers who are frustrated – rightly – about the state of things. About how Ron Paul was treated by the…

Boycott Autozone

If they won’t respect our rights, maybe they’ll pay more attention to our dollars. Or rather, the lack thereof – when we cease doing business with companies that don’t respect our rights. For instance, the auto parts retail giant Autozone. The company recently fired one of its employees – a fellow named Devin McLean who…
