OMG It's Gonna Rain! 

The nattering naybobs of negativity are in full bloom as the FIRST, (i.e., One) (1st) (only) storm of the season is aboot to hit Southern California. 2 inches of rain is forecast and the wind will blow a little.**

Nevertheless, we are being bombarded by an endless parade of predictions, prognostications and DOOM!.  Katie, bar the door, to the lifeboats, man the sand bag line, flash floods are a possibility, homes will be lost, mothers will have to tread water, the chillern will be harmed. Oh, the humanity.

Welcome to So Cal.  Meh...

Me? Well, I check the level in the rum stash and took Hockeydawg for a swim before the "OMG It's Gonna Rain!" storm arrives.  

We good.

** (This storm is a good thing...I have a 20 mile ocean race on Saturday. Let it blow!!)

Is That Racist?! 

Ima calling Rebrun Al & Rebrun Jessie. I need the Justice Brothers!

Officer Snowball. 

Respect My Authority! cried the yet to be identified Chicago Cop as he arrested the young ruffian for, wait for it, throwing a snowball, accurately.  Yes, with visions of Elliot Ness rounding up the thugs from the mean streets of Shitcago, Officer Snowball had the 13 year old boy charged with a FELONY.

According to police, a 13-year-old boy was charged as a juvenile with felony aggravated battery against a police officer Wednesday after he hit the officer in the arm with a snowball while the officer was parked in his vehicle in the 4900 block of West Congress Parkway about 3:20 p.m.

Apparently no other crimes were committed that day in one of the countries leading Murder Capitals. The Thin Blue Line has held. Thus, justice has been served....





There is a saying that goes something like "Those who do not know it are bound to repeat it."

I was over at Rogers page perusing the selections and came across this chronology of the Rise & End of the Third Reich.  We all know of many of the events, however, the timeline illustrates the concurrent nature of many of the actions.  I found it interesting in light of the current day march towards Socialism.  Hmmmmm......

A Chronology of the Third Reich (1919-1945)

Damn. Just Damn....   

Have ya ever found a blog where you could just pull it up and know you were gonna read something good?  Something wholesome. Something you wish you had thought of. A place where ya just felt comfortable? This blog, Home On The Range,  has been that for me. I don't know the purveyor other than what I have read and a few comments back & forth. But, it is a place I have grown fond of.

Tonight, I was saddened to learn that her trusty sidekick, Barkley, has passed on.  

So sorry Brigid.  Blessings to you....

Wall Ball... 

Home Defense.  The intruders are inside the gate. The home protection device is in hand. Lock & load. Ready to fully engage....ever wonder where those rounds that miss go?

Now, I know you will never have this problem because you never miss. Yet, aren't you just a little curious. Think that wall is a good backstop?

Read, watch & learn.

Wha what?! 

Sporterizing the Mosin-Nagant M44 

Article caught my eye.  This weapon has been garnering a larger degree of curiosity of late.  I see them in Big 5 when I go to pick up another 12 Lacrosse balls for the chillern.  $170.00 for a weapon that Ivan, Vasily, and their friends used to defend the Motherland back in the day.  I am talking about theMosin Nagant M44, of course. 

The article addressess the prospects of "sporterizing" the venerable rifle.  In layman's terms that means bringing it in to this century with some upgrades. 

As some of you may recall, I shot one of these flame throwers during the annual romp in Yuma last fall.  Very impressive weapon to shoulder. Heavy recoil and some unmistakebale flameage when you pull the trigger.  Accurate though. 

I must say with some opf these upgrades it may have a corner in my gun safe. Check out the article and be sure to look at the comments.  The knuckle draggers are out in force....  

Call Me Senator....

Here is an ad from 2010 regarding the comment from California other Moonbat Senator, Babs Boxer. One thing I never noticed is that Peabody award winning actor Nick Searcy, of "The Acting School" fame portrays the Major General or General Major....

UPDATE: Oh yeah, Nick also stars on the TV show "Justified". Sorry I forgot to mention that, Nick.  Sheesh.............

UPDATE II: It's on Tuesdays at 10:00 PM...are we thru here Nick?

UPDATE III: It's on FX.....

Well La T Daaaa.... 

Big tip of the olde chapeau to my Blog Pal, Captain Capitalism. Seems my favorite Economics guru, Aaron Clarey, has a new book out, and is making the rounds of all the hip places. Why even teh esteemed Ed Driscoll has opted to interview old Cappy.  If Bachelor Pad Economics is anything like Worthless or the epic Enjoy The Decline you all have some reading to do. 

I gave copies of Worthless to the chillern of friends heading off to college.  I know they will thank me ....later.

Good on ya Cappy!
