Laws Are For The Little People

Gun Control VA Democrat Fails Breathalyzer While Driving, Let Go with Warning
The cop didn't want to charge a local politician. Using your influence to avoid a charge is corruption and both should lose their jobs. At a minimum the politician should resign. That would be the honorable thing to do. Had that been me, I'd be unemployed whether I was charged or not.

Surprise, Surprise

Watchdog group says two North Carolina counties have more registered voters than voting age citizens
I thought Durham County would be one of them but then you don't need extra votes just the ability to extend the poll times to determine how many votes you need to find to turn the tide. You know when the State Board of Elections or the local boards will fix the problem? When a Federal Court orders it.

That Looks Interesting

Palmetto State Armory PS9 Dagger: $300 Glock Killer [UPDATED]
A striker fired 9mm pistol with a a slide cut for an RMR sight with suppressor height sights and a threaded barrel for $349.00. I'd want to see reviews but that looks interesting.

Imagine That

"Official" counts for events like this are always hard. The capital police estimates say 22,000. EM Ed Levine guessed "50,233" :) and another member used the same software the park police used on the mall to count people density from helicopter photos and his software says between 50,000 - 100,000. Here is a couple hours of helicopter video. Count for yourself an post your exact number below.

Recent Addition

Superman: Under a Yellow Sun a Novel by Clark Kent p36, Art by Eduardo Barreto. On the flip side is a pencil drawing of a anthropomorphic duck wearing a hood and medallion. It reminds me of something Don Rosa might do. It was a nice surprise and the more I look at it the more I like it.

Gunpowder and Embers by John Ringo, Kacey Ezell, and Christopher L. Smith

I understand this was originally intended as a collaboration between John Ringo and Larry Corriea that never came about. Ringo found new collaborators and the result is this first novel in a new series.

A rift to another universe opened and the creatures that came through ended out technological civilization. At best a 19th Century level now exists and a young man is tasked by his father with delivering an item to what's left of the United States government. As he collects companions along the way adventure and action ensues.

I liked it a lot and look forward to the sequel[s]. Ringo picked good helpers. I'm not sure how much involvement Ringo had in the final product. It really doesn't feel much like his usual style, but, regardless, the end product reads fine. Highly Recommended.

Her Lips Are Moving

AOC, you liying ****!

Yeah, Pretty Much

From the Babylon Bee:
Media Offers Thoughts And Prayers That Someone Would Start Some Violence At Gun Rights Rally
It satire with  core of truth. The MSM wanted it. Ooooh did they want it. Didn't get it though. Lots of protesters. Lots of guns. No violence. The one idiot reported got shouted down by the crowd.
Antifa Infiltrator? Gun Rally Goers Turn on Protester Who Suggests Violence
Now will the rally do any good? Probably not. The Democrats have been bought and paid for, and they'll vote as Master Mikey decrees if they want their payday to continue. 

Now having said that, this is a f**king grassroots Gun Rights rally done right.

Who is Recruiting Whom?

On edge: Unarmed Virginia gun protesters ask armed friends to ‘watch over us’

VDCL has even warned members to not take the bait. It said this week, “If someone tries to provoke you, smile and walk away. There is probably someone secretly recording the interaction, with the intent of capturing some kind of inappropriate reaction on your part. Don't take the bait. It's not worth the bad press.”

The group added, “The Democrats are afraid of the voters and want to portray this peaceful assembly of law-abiding gun owners in the worst possible way. They would love for it to degenerate to ‘violence, rioting, and insurrection’ in order to smear gun owners. Has the Democrat leadership actually invited violent groups to attend for the purpose of disrupting our peaceful assembly?”

Invited? Probably not. Encouraged them? Hell yes.

My suggestion, peaceably assemble. Take a camera. Record everything in and outside the cage. They will.

Grits, Guns, & Glory by John G. Hartness
This is Bubba the Monster Hunter, Season Two or volume two but whatever. It's as good as the first and there are at least two more out there. These should be read in order and if you like the first you will like this one. Highly Recommended.

Chain of Command by Frank Chadwick.
I've read novels by Chadwick and liked them but never really put him on my must read as soon as possible list. He's still not on the buy the eARC list but I'll pick up the sequel as soon as it is published, well may be the eARC. This is straight up military science fiction. Earth forces are attacked and betrayed by alleged allies and Earth is now in its first interstellar war. I read this every free moment I had until finished. The story and characters are well drawn and believable. It's good stuff and highly recommended.

Some of these aren't so recently since I've not done a book post in a while. Kinda of sorta listed as read.

The Powers of the Earth and Causes of Separation by Travis J. I. Corcoran
The United States has become AOC's wet dream and a nightmare to to those who value freedom. The discovery of an anti-gravity drive allows people to flee to the moon. The fact that the governments of the Earth don't have it keeps them at a distance but the good old USA needs the esources of the moon colony to keep it from collapse. They steal the drive and invade. The residents of the Moon fight back. Both are well written, plotted and thought out. If you like Heinlein's The Moon is a Harsh Mistress or the works of L. Neil Smith, you will most likely enjoy these book. Corcoran has also written two short stories, The Team and Staking a Claim in the same universe.

Firefly Season 2 by Travis J. I. Corcoran and Clark Bianco is a novella at best but well worth the read. The story is about the crew of a cross time craft who earn their living collecting and selling cultural artifacts from other timelines. The object of their desire in this story is the second season of Firefly. Hell, I'd pay for that. It's short but fun and well worth the read.

Council of Fire by Eric Flint and Walter Hunt.
The first novel in this series was written by Kevin J. Reynolds and Sarah Hoyt. It told of a world where North America was cut off from Europe and Asia by a magical barrier and the rise of magic. This goes back fifty or so years to when the split takes place. It's good stuff. Recommended.

The Adventures of Kirk Rogers: Inside the Moon and The Adventures of Kirk Rogers Book Two by C. J. Boyle.
The author borrows extensively from the works of others. You'll notice the similarities of situations and characters from science fiction novels, television, and film. If that doesn't turn you off you will probably enjoy both novels. I did.

Collapse by Kirk Schlichter
This is book four in his Kelly Turnbull series. The United States split between the communist, socialist, progressive Left and the rest of us. This time Turnbull goes back behind enemy lines to sabotage the Blue States only remaining aircraft carrier before they can turn it over to the Chinese while the Red States prepare to invade before the Chinese take over. Lots of action and dark humor. Schichter says he writes these novels not in the hope they will come true but to forewarn us in hope they won't. Highly Recommended. Read them all.

The Cunning Man by D. J. Butler
He's not a witch or sorcerer. He's a cunning man who was taught hexes and such by his grandmother and who uses them against the evil that is here and there in Utah during the Great Depression. Very well done and highly recommended. Can't wait for more.

Scattered, Smothered & Chunked by John G. Hartness
Bubba is a monster hunter for the Roman Catholic Church. His area of responsibility is the area, west of the Mississippi and south of the Mason Dixon Line or THE SOUTH. He is a redneck and proud of it. He likes guns, blades, and titty bars. He has daddy issues in that his daddy is an evil werewolf. It's fun to read and if I don't have Larry Corriea's MHI novels to read these will do as a real close second. Oh yeah, there are more. Highly Recommended.

USA Today Dragged to Hell Over Op-Ed on ‘Terrifying’ Heroism in Texas Church Shooting

It's terrifying to you. I'm actually impressed that the armed members of the congregation responded to the shooter and only two of their number and the evil git that shot them died. Even as Mr. Wilson dropped the bad guy they held fire. There was no crossfire. The evil git was stopped and no one else died. That says something about the level of their training. Could they use more? Hell yes, we all could. Under stressful circumstances they did pretty damn good.

To the writer of the USA Today op-ed, you don't need to know a thing about the other members of Mr. Wilson's team other than they did a good job. They have a right to their privacy. You don't have a right to pull them into your politics. Now, go sit on a pineapple and spin.

...or the purposeful ignorance of the Left.
