The Perfect Match

Listen to the Merrie Melodies/Looney Tunes intro.

Then watch Andrew Klavan's bit on the ongoing Senate and Congressional investigations.

It is oddly appropriate to the topic.

Black Powder War by Naomi Novik

The further adventures of Temeraire and her companion Laurence. This time they travel from China overland home to England. The quality is the same as the previous novels and I'd get right on the next one except I just picked up the new Stephen Hunter Swagger Clan novel and that, unfortunately for Mrs. Novik, trumps a dragon any day. The novel is highly recommended. Go at it.

Current Events

BUT that shit in Montana is STILL funny.

A CSGV "Study"

“Public Opinion and Media Consumption Study

Hi! We’re researchers from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. We are conducting a study to better understand audience evaluations of media coverage of gun regulations and gun rights.”

Click on here and have fun.

[Source]The original source for this "study" was from an email Sean Sorrentino was sent by CSGV. I consider the CSGV email the gunnie equivalent of "hey guys, there's an anti-gun poll over at so and so place. go play, much as this post is a "hey gunnies, go play here" post. Go play.

When you ignore the news you miss stuff.

So I saw on the web somewhere the other day a blurb about some GOP dude assaulting a reporter, and that's the last I paid any attention to it. Saw more blurbs and ignored 'em. Don't care. TODAY I was reading Larry Correia's blog and realized that it was the conservative pro-gun candidate, originally from New Jersey, who was running against a local "black rifles are evil but I like other guns" Democrat in Montana. THAT I had read about. Correia informed me that the dude, refugee from New Jersey, was the dude who had "body slammed" a Guardian reporter, AND despite the who haw from the Democrats, had won the election anyway. Violence is never a valid response to an asshole unless they lay hands on you, BUT that was funny.

President Trump, here's a reelection strategy for ya in 2020. The White House Press Room. Go at it.

Just kidding. Violence is bad.

They are NEVER Satisfied

New York ‘Common Sense’ Gun Bill Could Get People Killed

Not satisfied with SAFE Act citizen disarmament measures (because they will never be satisfied), New York tyrannophiles are proposing yet another insidious infringement that will not only result in sweeping gun bans, but will render allowable guns dangerous to their owners as well as to others when the guns are deployed in self-defense. Senate Bill S3444, authored and sponsored wholly by Democrats, will all but ensure more injuries and deaths in the name of protecting children.

And they claim they don't want our guns.

It's what they do...


The Brady Bunch are at it again.

Trotting Out A Dusty Old Canard
So Bradys, what gun control law has ever prevented "felons, domestic abusers, fugitives and people who are a danger to themselves or others from carrying loaded, hidden guns in public"? Let me answer that for you while you stutter trying to find an answer. None. The bad guys have always carried where they damn well please while you twits push for more that does nothing but inconvenience the good guys.

Throne of Jade by Naomi Novik

The second novel in the Temeraire series. I enjoyed it as much as the first. Lawrence and Temeraire are ordered to China amid political intrigue. It is good stuff and recommended.

Two Quotes

The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. - Robert A. Heinlein

All governments suffer a recurring problem: Power attracts pathological personalities. It is not that power corrupts but that it is magnetic to the corruptible. Such people have a tendency to become drunk on violence, a condition to which they are quickly addicted. - Frank Herbert


It is what they do...

Look for truth; don't cave to fear
Democrats support gun control. The end game is a ban on all firearms. Requiring registration of the most popular rifle in the United States is just another step toward that goal. Any claim otherwise is an out and out lie. That's what gun prohibitionists do. That's what Democrats do.

H/T to Sebastian.

Doom Patrol #14 by Ron Randall and John Livesay

Well, there goes the red dot, for now, at least. You would have thought I'd have learned my lesson. I see a beautiful piece of art on eBay. I bid on it not expecting to win...and I win. Oh well, I've been wanting a piece of art by Ron Randall. Usually I bid and lose OR the dealer can't find the piece I want in his extensive collection despite the fact he has it posted on his website BUT here's a nice piece for more money OR he just sold it and here's a nice piece for more money. The consolation here is it is a beautiful piece of artwork and the payment goes to a good cause.
