Hey, DiFi, FUCK YOU!!
Have a great Saturday
They never let a crisis go to waste.
Several Democratic lawmakers called for a new push for U.S. gun restrictions on Sunday, including a ban on military-style assault weapons, in the wake of the Connecticut massacre in which 20 children and six adults were gunned down in a school.
Because ONLY “assault weapons” were used at the Sandy Hook terror attack. Yes, I do think it was a terror attack.
Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, the author of an assault-weapons ban that lapsed in 2004, said she would introduce new legislation this week. Senator Dick Durbin, the chamber’s No. 2 Democrat, said lawmakers would hold hearings on gun control, and several others said they would devote new attention to the long-ignored issue.
“I think we could be at a tipping point … where we might get something done,” Senator Charles Schumer, another top Senate Democrat, said on CBS’s “Face the Nation.”
Because the guns killed those adults and children. I find it ironic that the person calling for a new ban holds a permit to conceal carry.
Republican Representative Louie Gohmert said (when asked why citizens would need to own semi-automatic weapons), “Well, for the reason George Washington said: a free people should be an armed people. It ensures against the tyranny of the government, if they know that the biggest army is the American people.”
Gohmert added, “Once you start drawing the line, where do you stop? … Gun laws don’t work.”
Just ask Chicago or Washington, D.C.
They want to take away our right to bear arms? Fine, then take it away from every single person, starting with the Secret Service, LEOs, and other federal agents. Every politician has to give up their entitled security. But what about the bad guys, you ask?? Well, guarantee me they will give up their weapons, too, and you have got a deal!
The only type of gun control that works is the type where you hit your target center mass.
Apparently, someone who shall remain nameless is too busy to put up eye candy, so the job falls to yours truly.
It’s Sunday, but this is appropriate for every single day.
Have a great day, and remember: “gun control” means hitting your target
This guy has lots of gun-related videos on YouTube. The guy seems to know his stuff and makes good use of humor in his videos.
You might take a look at the rest of his stuff on YouTube.
To the shores of Tripoli!!!
You look wonderful for being 236 years old.

For those of you unaware of the name and the story, it is an outpost named after one of the first soldiers killed at that outpost in the Korengal Valley in Afghanistan (The Korengal Valley was regarded as “the deadliest place on Earth”). The story is about the soldiers who went in and set up an outpost in the middle of the night and how they fought to keep it!
If you have not seen the movie…GET IT, WATCH IT, then WATCH IT AGAIN!! It is an emotional, fierce and in-your-face documentary. It received the Grand Jury Prize for best documentary at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival. (One of the directors, Tim Hetherington, was the photojournalist killed in Libya on 20 April, 2011).
But now…to the trailer at the official web site. It is a peek into one OP of many and what some of our soldiers go through every day.
R.I.P. PFC Restrepo and your brothers that died there with you. You and your brethren display the TRUE American soldier!!
Restrepo, A Year In Afghanistan is going to be shown on National Geographic channel Monday 25 April at 9pm, Eastern.

As a soldier who has been Reserve, National Guard and Active….this video (yeah, it’s a bit old) still makes my eyes mist a bit. It used to be (Pre 9-11) that the Guard and Reserves were considered second class soldiers. I know, because when I went from Active Duty to a short stint in the Guard, I had the same opinion. We all used to hear stories of Reservists and the Guard guys taking beer chests and coolers to their two week AT (Annual Training). And hell, they only met one weekend a month!! How can you be ready for combat with THAT limited time?
But I can assure you that mentality WILL never be like that again. Some Guard and Reserve units have deployed more than most Active units. I have personally trained Guard and Reservists on going on their third, fourth and fifth deployments. (I also deployed as a Reservist, so I have seen the look we get from Active soldiers! Little did they know I still had more Active and combat time than they did!!)
But to the video….and BTW, 3 Doors Down did this video for FREE!!! They did not ask for ANY money from the National Guard!!! TRUE PATRIOTS!!!
(I personally love the Blackhawk coming in with an Apache package support!! Been there, done that!!! And it IS a rush!!)
“Hope and pray that you never need me,
but rest assured I will not let you down….
I walk beside you, but you may not see me….
The strongest among you may not wear a crown!”
Bonus points if you can name the left shoulder patches in the first scenes without Google!! HINT- it is NOT New Mexico! And I trained this unit!
Because real men take bullets with their coffee.

I do. I love living here. It has that small town feel, even though the population is in the seven figures now. Most of the excitement is usually reserved for gangs tagging and killing each other off on the Southside, BRAC bitching on the military bases, highway growing pains, and the like. Then, once in a while, you get the joys of idiotarianism:
The price of the Beefy Crunch Burrito had gone up from 99 cents to $1.49 and the man at the Rigsby Road Taco Bell drive-thru had just ordered seven.
The fast food customer was so disgruntled by the price hike he shot an air gun at the manager, displayed an assault rifle and pistol while in the restaurant’s parking lot, fled as police were called, and pointed one of his weapons at three officers who pulled him over. Fleeing when they opened fire, he barricaded himself in his hotel room — all over $3.50 plus additional tax.
The SWAT was called out, and a negotiator was smooth-talking the burrito freak off a metaphorical ledge for three and a half hours, until 6:30 PM, when presumably the SWAT got hungry for Taco Bell, and tossed tear gas into the idiotarian’s hotel room.
Now, nothing against Taco Bell, but I live in an area known for its Tex-Mex food, and to go insane over Taco Bell, when you have other authentic and even cheaper places to get your burrito fix is just… well, let’s just say he has to be a few chips short of a Nachos Bellgrande.
