God made men and women. Colonel Colt made them equal.

Thursday, December 4th, 2014

The national media didn’t talk much about gun control as Barack Obama’s “irrelevant” opposition — the GOP that he saw no need to consult as he was forcing Obamacare down the nation’s throat — swept to a decisive victory in November. No, Democrats and their handmaidens of the press prefer to pretend our elections are […]

Talk about the hypocrite from New York City

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

It’s sort of like one of those old “Twilight Zone” episodes. What if you had a billion dollars, but you couldn’t use it to buy what you wanted? With a net worth of about $34 billion, former Wall Street banker Michael Bloomberg is reportedly the sixteenth-wealthiest person in the world. He spent about $74 million […]

How come they keep having these ‘elections,’ and nothing ever changes?

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

For the most part, participating in “judgeship” elections is pointless at best, if not outright pernicious. Your participation will be interpreted as granting your consent and approval to what amounts to a huge, unconstitutional scam. So far as I know, you can no longer become a judge in this country — with the possible exception […]

Show us your guns, America

Monday, October 6th, 2014

In the “Good News” department, the Washington Times reported in September “More than 57,000 gun-friendly bars, eateries crop up across America.” Back in April, the owners of TBonz Steakhouse in Augusta, Georgia, “decided to be proactive when Republican Gov. Nathan Deal signed into law one of the most comprehensive pro-gun bills in the country,” the […]

Driving the Ranchers Off the Land, Part 5 of 6

Monday, September 22nd, 2014

(NOTE: a condensed version of this report appears in the Autumn, 2014 issue of “Range” magazine, on newsstands now.) WHAT’S ‘THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF GRAZING’? With the BLM having turned tail on April 12, has Bundy won -– as his supporters hope and believe — or will the federals just lick their wounds before coming […]

Victim disarmament: the gift that keeps on killing

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2014

Lots of folks remember the big shooting at Fort Hood, Texas, in 2009. They should. The Army paid for the medical education of Nidal Malik Hasan, a radical Muslim born in this country of Palestinian immigrants. Hasan volunteered, of course. The Army even promoted him to major and gave him the responsibility of caring for […]

Sunday, August 31st, 2014

(NOTE: a condensed version of this report appears in the Autumn, 2014 issue of “Range” magazine, on newsstands now.) Cliven showed me areas where he’d bulldozed dirt across an occasional wash, which then filled up and became a muddy watering pond not only for his cattle, but for the quail and other wildlife that subsequently […]

Driving the Ranchers Off the Land, Part 3 of 6

Saturday, August 23rd, 2014

(NOTE: a condensed version of this report appears in the Autumn, 2014 issue of “Range” magazine, on newsstands now.) COULD BUNDY HAVE ‘JUST PAID HIS FEES’ AND STAYED IN BUSINESS? The clear implication of the BLM claims that this is all about Bundy simply refusing to pay “more than a million dollars in grazing fees” […]
