Battle #48

The cover art is very nice and by Joe Maneely.

So that's why the IRS emails disappeared.

Makes as much sense as the bullshit the White House is spouting, AND it is the White House. The dudes making the excuses are just Obama's sock puppets.

UPDATE: [8/26/2014] AND now the EPA's.

I'm sure there's a caption there somewhere, but... snark is low on a good day and nonexistent right now.

I got the picture over at Theo Spark's place. I have no idea where they got it.

All good. The Hoyt piece is a short story. I need to get around to her books on my Kindle. Correia and Freer are next.

Why is it so hard for liberals to put responsibility...

...where it belongs? For a firearm to discharge requires someone to place their finger on the trigger and pull. No pull, no bang. No bang, nobody or thing gets killed, injured, or damaged. That act of will made in the pulling of the trigger is key. You can't accidentally pull a trigger. A person can decide that fraction of a second after the action has been taken that he/she didn't intend the aftermath of said action but that doesn't make it an accident. The word you're looking for is "negligently". The shooters in one moment, made a bad decision. As noted by ASM826, when the shooter was a child, or the functional equivalent, the negligence was in the gun owner leaving the weapon improperly secured where said child could get at it. Again, Negligence not accident and I, a responsible gun owner, will not allow my rights to be held hostage by the actions of the negligent. So, the Huff Po can go piss up a rope.

Oh yeah, I might also point out the notable absence from the Huff Po's list of "accidental" shootings over a two-year period where any involving the police. Ya know, the only ones who, according to liberals, are responsible enough to handle firearms. I'm sure the absence was "accidental".

I'm especially fond of #5.

Not only violent but pretty damn stupid as well.

This anti-gunner in particular.

The Red Hot Chili Pipers: Hellbound Train


How To Train your Dragon 2 is every bit as good as the first one. What's more. It is worth every penny spent to see it on the big screen.

If you are a fan of Family Guy and Seth MacFarlane's gross humor then A Million Ways To Die In The West is probably just what you're looking for this weekend. I'm not a fan and thought it sucked. The only bit I liked was when the lead saw some flashing lights in the stable and looked in to find Doc Brown and the Delorean. Not even Charlize Theron, Amanda Seyfried, and Neil Patrick Harris could save this dog.

 If you enjoy alternative comics or are just interested in something more than superheroes Love & Rockets is a damn good place to start. Fantagraphics, their publisher, also offers a number of strip reprints including Peanuts and Dennis the Menace.

Bill Whittle: Why Benghazi Matters

A robber brought pepper spray...

...with him for a robbery in Shelby NC. It didn't work out so well for him. Well, actually, it did. He under arrest rather than dead. The store owner had a gun.

I don't know about "downright scary"...

...but they're certainly not helping the cause. That's four restaurant chains that may not have out and out banned firearms from their premises officially but in asking us to leave the guns at home gave a victory to the Bloombergians however half-assed the requests may have been. That's a not good thing for the cause.

Islands of Rage and Hope by John Ringo
1636: Commander Cantrell in the West Indies by Eric Flint & Charles E. Gannon

Ringo's novel is a fast entertaining ride. I think I read somewhere that this is a trilogy. I hope not. Want more.

Flint & Gannon's book is slow by comparison. Hell, its just slow, but that doesn't mean it not entertaining. It is but I sense very little Flint here. This novel and others in the 1632 series read like side chapters in one long endless story. I don't want it to end but it needs to move a bit faster. It is time for Flint or Weber to write another one. Please
