This Bloomberg story is four years old...

...but I doubt Mikey has changed his mind.
Michael Bloomberg suggests disarming minorities to 'keep them alive'
Mikey, when you disarm people you don't "keep them alive". You make it easier for the bad guys to victimize them. You make it easier for you to victimize them.

Who Says an AR-15 is Useless for Self-Defense

Only the stupid.
Florida Woman Uses AR-15 To Defend Family During Home Invasion
Two home invaders entered a Florida home, pointed guns at the husband and his daughter, then began to pistol whip the husband when he could not give them what they wanted. His pregnant wife was in a back bedroom, heard the goings on, and looked out of the room. One of the evil gits took a shot at her and missed. She got the AR-15 in the bedroom, returned fire, and shot one of the buggers. Both fled but only one made it past the ditch outside. One is dead and the cops are still looking for number two. The moral here may be it is best not to fuck with a pregnant woman, in the eight month, with a rifle.

Lost and Found by Orson Scott Card

I am a fan of Card's work, kinda. I really liked Ender's Game short story. I'm not a big fan of the novel and have never read any of the sequels. I've read and liked all the Alvin Maker, and Mithermages novels. The rest of his stuff has been hit and miss for me. I bought this on a whim and now I'm looking back at some of his work I've missed. Here, a young man has a talent for finding things and has gotten him labelled a thief. When his only friend disappears, he and a police officer use his talent to find her. Whether you like Scott or not you can't deny his talent. His characters and plot are as well crafted as you would expect. I read it through in two or three sittings and look forward to more out of this world. Highly recommended.

Lincoln's Wizard: Dragon's of the Confederacy, Book 1 by Tracy Hickman and Dan Willis

The American Civil War is now into it's tenth year. The South uses dragons and reanimated dead to fight it's war and the North has airships and steam powered mechs. It's an interesting premise that gets moving only to stop abruptly. Not enough happens in what we do get. I've read there will be a sequel but it's been five years since the original publication so.... I've never read anything by Hickman. Willis' Arcane Casebooks are top notch so I'll put the blame on this midlin' alternate fantasy on the former rather and the later and suggest you look elsewhere for your next possibly the Arcane Casebooks.

1636: The China Venture by Eric Flint and Iver P. Cooper.

If you are looking for action, you won't find it here. A group from the USE heads to China to set up diplomatic and business relations with the Chinese Empire. It's half a story. They arrive and begin to build relationships but there isn't really a conclusion. Maybe in the next novel. Read it or wait until the next chapter gets published and read it then. If you are a fan and you read it now you probably won't be disappointed.

My Enemy's Enemy by Robert Buettner

The story is told in the present day where a couple looking for a WWII era aircraft stumble on a nuclear terror plot and an alternate history of WWII where the Nazis succeeded in developing a functional nuclear weapon just prior to the end of the war. You get to see relate to one another in Buettner's novel. You can view this as a damn good thriller or alternative history. actualy it's a combination of the two. I read this every available moment until it was done. It grabbed me and didn't let go. I've read some of Buettner's Orphanage books. They're good. This is better. I can't wait for the next book he writes. Highly recommended.

New on the Sidebar [Bumped]

You might notice the Original Comic Art on the sidebar. I collect originals when I can afford them. The Preacher pages I've owned since the 90's. The others I started buying around 2014. I'm cheap. I look for nice samples of artists I like but steer away from the expensive character pages when possible. The prices on original art have jumped the shark and most of what I like isn't within reach, but deals are still there. Just gotta hunt and be patient. Also I located a large format scanner at a local library so better scans of some of the pieces are on the way. Enjoy.

This page is by Sean Phillips, a British comic book artist. He seems to work primarily with Ed Brubaker these days but has plenty of credits with Marvel and DC. This piece is from he and Brubaker's title Fatale, a supernatural noir tale. Specifically, it is page #1 from issue #2. Brubaker is hit or miss for me but his Velvet and Fatale are top notch. Phillips is always excellent even if the writers aren't.

I don’t support any form of violence and to avoid misunderstandings I’ve deleted the post. And of course I am against fascism.” - Greta Thurnberg after being photographed wearing an ANTIFA t-shirt.
That's all well and good but you are known by the totalitarian, statist trash you keep company with and every time I see your photo I get the feeling that if you had the power you'd send us all to the corn field.

Weapons of War

SAS hero with shotgun 'kills five ISIS fighters including two wearing suicide vests in just seven seconds during raid on jihadi bomb factory in Iraq'
In the end, they are all weapons of war or have been. It isn't just your AR and AK they want. Pistols, revolvers, shotguns, muzzle loaders have been used in warfare. If we accept their argument that this makes the AR-15 unsuitable for civilian ownership we are already at the bottom of the slippery slope. It's just a matter of time.

Assault Weapon Bans: A Solution in Search of a Problem

Again, analysis regarding the AR-15 — the so-called “weapon of choice” of mass shooters — produces less-than-impressive numbers. Between 2007 and 2018, 173 people were killed by mass shooters using an AR-15, according to a New York Times analysis — roughly, 15 per year. (For perspective, 13 people die per year from vending machines falling on them.) The fearmongering regarding this weapon becomes even more apparent when one considers the estimated 8 million AR-15s currently in circulation — the vast majority of which will never be involved in a crime.

This is number fourteen in the Destroyermen series. The war with the Grik is closer to the end but on the Dominion front things are heating up. It's all good, but remember you can't start this series here. You have to start with book one, Into the Storm, otherwise you will be lost. Honestly, with most series this long I start to get tired of it and hope the author has an end in sight. As it stands now, this one is good enough to just keep on going.

New The Far Side Coming

The Best News in a Long Time: The Far Side Is Coming Back
I have fond memories of the comics strips, comic books, television, movies, books I read growing up. That would include strips like The Far Side, Calvin and Hobbes, and Bloom County that I read as an adult. I was still growing up then. What I have found is that in many cases the fond memories don't translate to the present. I loved The Wild, Wild, West as a pre-teen. I tried to watch it again when a friend loaned me his DVD collection a few years back. All the magic was gone. Dennis the Menace as I knew it as a child, Pre-teen, and teen does nothing for me now. The first two years of the strip on the other hand are as good as anything Bill Watterson did in Calvin and Hobbes. The second run of Bloom County never touched the first run. I decided I'd rather keep the fond memories so I don't go back to read or watch the old stuff that much any more. I hope I don't fell that way about The Far Side relaunch.

One is long. The other is short. Read them both as they are much better at this stuff than I am. The point of both is that Democrats exist among lies because if they told the truth only bat shit ideologues would support them. "we don't want your guns" or "you can keep your doctor" are standard fare here. Lies. It's what they do. Now Beto has spoken "truth" and we know where we stand. Right leaning gun owners have always know what the endgame was but others were in denial.

No denial now.

They want to take our guns.

They aim to have them if at all possible, so get your ass out there and call your representatives and tell them where you stand. If you wait until the election to vote it may bee too late.
