Vote for Grass Roots North Carolina [BUMPED AGAIN]

When the Brady Bunch decided to sue Lucky Gunner they didn't expect to lose and they didn't expect the presiding judge to award Luck Gunner $111,971.10 as a partial reimbursement for their legal fees. They aren't sure when, or if, they'll ever see the money but they have decided to donate whatever they get to groups that support and defend the Second Amendment. It is not winner take all. the money will be distributed proportionally. My point, Grass Roots North Carolina is on the list. They are the leading gun rights organization in North Carolina and could use the support. Go vote for them here.

UPDATE: Changed the Title.

I'll worry about global warming...

...when the people pushing it act like they do.

The Lion's Gate: On the Front Lines of the Six Day War by Stephen Pressfield

I haven't been a big reader of nonfiction lately. I noticed Pressfield's The Lion's Gate the other day and picked it up. It's an oral [sorta]history of the Six Day War and it is excellent. I loved his Gates of Fire but hadn't been able to get past the first couple of chapters or any thing else he had written. This I knocked out in a couple of days. Highly recommended.

The Girl of Hrusch Avenue: A Powder Mage Short Story by Brian McClellan

I've had this for a while, as well as his novels, but hadn't gotten around to them. This was good enough that I'm now well into the first novel. I'll let you know how it works out.

Pixels by Patrick Jean

The Adam Sandler film of the same name is based on this short film. The Sandler version isn't bad either. It isn't a great movies but it is good fun.

Put him in the general prison population.

“Trooper of the Year” Good Cop Sexually Assaults a 4-Yr-Old Girl Multiple Times, “Cries” When He is Sentenced
He should be spending the rest of his life in prison. He violated the community's trust, but more important he sexually assaulted a four year old. He assaulted a four year old and got a $5000 fine and four years in jail. I've been told on more than one occasion that police are held to a higher standard, and no one is above the law. Prove it. Hold him to a higher standard.

H/T to Claire.

Well...there ya go.

Overkill

Pacific Palisades Neighborhood Evacuated After Live Ammo Reportedly Found
Just firearms and ammunition? Seems like a bit of overkill to me, but, of course, it's California.

More detail on the arms here. Still seems like overkill.

Hold on a second there...

Military leaders are in part hamstrung by a 19th century law that bars the federal government from using the military for law enforcement purposes.
Except we aren't arming them to act as law enforcement but to defend themselves in case of attack. The Posse Comitatus Act doesn't apply, but paranoid as I am about the Obama Administration, I can see them using this as an excuse to repeal under their "never let a crisis go to waste" approach to government.
