This about sums it up

Especially the bootlicking "civilian"


This morning at the range

The range in this case being defined as a parcel of woods I have access to by virtue of a hunting club I'm in.

This first pic is the first shot of the day off a cold barrel - at 400 yards. 150 grain, .270 Win.

And here's my group at 400.

I had a really good day on the trigger today.


There seems to be something about 20%

I couldn't HELP but but notice the results (for Greece right now, and soon for America) of having a 20% unemployment rate, and at the same time seeing a 20% cut in gubmint staffing levels, along with a reduction in mandatory minimum wages of 20%.


I love reading that the German politicians and bankers don't trust the Greek politicians! Imagine that.

To be used against YOU, here in America

Remember the NDAA now opens the door for military tribunal treatment of American's here at home

Remember the principal that when you have a big hammer, all your problems look like nails

Remember that such agencies as TSA are willing to grope your children and your ninety year-old grandma

Remember that our government sees EVERYONE as a terrorist, and the shift is AWAY from Mustafa and TOWARDS Bubba

Listen carefully for the tax-payer fed bureaucrat to say "we're ruling nothing out" in how they use this AGAINST YOU AMERICA!


Random thoughts from The Old Jarhead

Robert Hall has more good sense in his little finger than... well... just about anybody!

This morning's post of his is SO worthy of your time.

PS: He and I don't always agree on everything (I despise John McCain for example) but there is much wisdom in the man nonetheless.


Something good for a change

A little over two years ago my son and his wife gave me my first grandchild: a precious and sweet natured little girl they named Isabelle. She has been a bright shining ray of sunlight across our lives, and a real blessing from Almighty God in every sense of the word.

Over time we discovered that she wasn’t developing in her motor skills at the normal rate, and after many doctor’s visits it was finally determined that she had undergone some oxygen starvation while in the womb. There is actually scar tissue on the surface of her brain. So we have watched as our precious grandbaby has lagged behind in motor development and speech patterns.

The good news, we are told, is that oftentimes the brain can adapt and other parts of the brain that are undamaged can “take up the slack”. Many children with this problem grow up and show no signs of ever struggling to develop normally.

Many children are afflicted to some extent for their whole lives.

Need I say that many prayers have been said over this sweet and wonderful little girl that she will be among those who are able to overcome?

Isabelle shows many signs that her problems are not cognitive, and that is something important to be thankful for. But she has reached the age of two and has not been able to walk without the aid of a walker. She is also way behind in her speech development and articulates very little that even passes for baby talk.

Nonetheless, we all love her very much, and her mother and father have both worked VERY hard with the physical therapy routines in order to give Isabelle every chance to walk and talk like every other precious two year old out there.

I got a text message from her mother this morning that absolutely brought me tears – and I am a man who could stomp the eyeballs out of an enemy and eat a sandwich over the corpse. But I blubbered like a little child when I read this from my DIL:

“Isabelle walked unassisted today without trying to hold onto the therapist. She actually looked like a toddler walking down the therapy hallway. :D”

Praise be to God from whom all blessings flow!

Anyone still wondering why we're on the verge of collapse in America?

Let's give a big round of applause to our teachers and the Dept of Education for THIS:

You have to TRY to be this ignorant!


Here is the best description I have ever read of the economic threat that America faces

Russell at DumpDC has written something that even economically ignorant Americans should be able understand. I implore you in the strongest possible way to read this article and ponder the implications for you and your family!

If you aren't stockpiling food, ammo, medicines, as well as some silver and gold, you're going to deeply regret it in the not too distant future!


They really ARE monitoring what ordinary schmucks say

Two British tourists were barred from entering America after joking on Twitter that they were going to 'destroy America' and 'dig up Marilyn Monroe'. Leigh Van Bryan, 26, was handcuffed and kept under armed guard in a cell with Mexican drug dealers for 12 hours after landing in Los Angeles with pal Emily Bunting. The Department of Homeland Security flagged him as a potential threat when he posted an excited tweet to his pals about his forthcoming trip to Hollywood which read: 'Free this week, for quick gossip/prep before I go and destroy America?'

Read the whole article here.

GR4U - Ok, this is for all those head-in-the-sand types who keep telling themselves that tyranny can't happen in America! If ordinary schmucks like these two clowns are being monitored, then can we finally accept that Big Brother has truly come to America? The technology is here, the Nanny Staters are firmly in charge, and that pesky Bill of Rights has been completely marginalized.

Where the hell is Capt John Parker when you really need him!

H/T to Joel for spotting this one
