A Winning Election Strategy

Biden's record-setting tax increases will take your money — and your job

Probably Not

Most of these people are buying guns because they are frightened. How they vote will depend on who they blame. It may not be Antifa BLM or the Democrats.

R. I. P. Joe Sinnott

Longtime Marvel inker Joe Sinnott dead at 93, family says
I've loved comic books since before I could read them. There were inkers I dreaded to see for various reason. Joes Sinnott was never one of those. His work complemented the pencils he inked. He was extremely competent at this trade. He will be missed.

Father's Day

Owen Maple Smith, my dad. He's the guy wearing the hat. This was taken in the late 40's. A Sunday afternoon after church get together where firearms were involved. It's been forty years since I lost my dad and I still miss him oh so badly.

You First

Some Atlanta police call in sick, mayor asks for them to honor commitment
When you became Mayor you accepted the responsibility of being fair and even handed to your treatment of city employees including the police. You have failed in that. You have failed your city. Resign.

Usagi Yojimbo Art [Updated]

Stan Sakai writes and draw by favorite comic Book, Usagi Yojimbo, I missed the first couple of appearances in ALBEDO but still started reading him early in the run. I started buying the signed and numbered editions as they hit the shelves. I bought them to read. Things I like I want in hardcover so I can read it over and over. On the bookplate of each edition, Stan would draw a small sketch. I didn't get into buying art until 2014 and Stan's original art was mostly outside buy range if you could find it at all. I'd brag though that I had several sketches of Usagi by Stan and I did...in the books. Mostly I didn't think about them. I bought the books to read. The other day I purchased a finished drawing by Stan, Usagi with Clenched Fist which is posted elsewhere on this blog but also below. I started thinking of the sketches in the books and went looking. As the editions reached the twenties and thirties the sketches were mostly head shots with just a signature on the last Dark Horse Edition. These editions ranged from 500 to 1500 copies. That's a lot of sketches and a lot of time that could be put toward the comic. I'm thankful he put the time and thought into the sketches he did. All the work is nice but the earlier editions have some really nice stuff. I look for Stan's work on eBay and on dealer websites. These are much nicer than some of the convention sketches I see posted for sell. As I said elsewhere, I had riches and didn't realize it.

The remaining editions contained mostly head sKetches similar to those displayed already. There are plenty of examples already. No need to scan and post. Enjoy.

That's What I Thought

Moving on to Cal Cunningham here in North Carolina, you saw a ton of ads for him early in the spring. Some so-called veterans PAC was running a lot of ads for him touting that he served in Iraq and was awarded the Bronze Star. You got the impression he was like Sen. Tom Cotton (R-AR) who, despite being a Harvard Law School grad, served as an infantry officer in Iraq and Afghanistan. If that was your impression, you’d be wrong. Cunningham served as a JAG attorney in the Army Reserve attached to the XVIII Airborne Corps. His Bronze Star was awarded for meritorious service overseeing a number of attorneys and paralegals. In other words, he got it for acting like the managing partner of a law firm – not for leading troops in combat.
That and his endorsement by Everytown. Bought and paid for by Bloomberg.

Defund the Police

I'm confident the majority of Americans know better. The people spouting this bullshit are a loud Leftist minority given slanted coverage by the Media, They don't want to get rid of the police. They want to get rid of what we have now and replace it with their own Cheka. What they don't realize thrie thugs might not be the replacement. That void they create might be filled by something else. What follows falls under interesting times.
