There’s plenty we could do about mass shootings

Monday, March 12th, 2018

There was a school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Feb. 14. (Former?) student Nikolas de Jesus Cruz (who was reportedly a subject of bullying there) used a .223-caliber, one-shot-per-trigger-pull rifle (not an “automatic weapon” as claimed by Democratic Florida Sen. Bill Nelson.) Young de Jesus Cruz left 17 dead, dozens more injured.

‘It’s a weapon designed to inflict maximum damage’

Wednesday, February 28th, 2018

I believe I hear the fellow from CNN (who appears to close his eyes while firing) saying of the AR-15 “It’s a weapon designed to inflict maximum damage,” here:

Too busy wiretapping candidates, rigging elections, Covering Their Asses

Friday, February 16th, 2018

So police were called out to visit with Florida “Valentine’s Day” shooter-to-be Nikolas de Jesus Cruz THIRTY-NINE TIMES over the past seven years, for “mentally ill, domestic violence, assault, threats, Peeping Tom, shooting animals . . .” yet (as Loyal Correspondent Bear points out) neither cops nor school officials ever made use of the Florida […]

What If The Choice Is Between God And Government? From Where Does YOUR Authority Derive?

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

(Brunette here.) Are you skeptical about religion? Yes? . . . me too. Are you equally skeptical of Atheism? (Ditto.) Atheism seems quite popular at present; I take no issue with individual atheists, though evangelizing atheists (evangelists of any sort, frankly) DO irk me. Faith is an extremely personal thing to those who possess it. […]

A Surprising Haven For Gays Fleeing the Regressive Left

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

(Brunette again.) With recent LGBT Pride Day celebrations fading from the headlines, especially since posting my last piece, I’ve found myself thinking about various stories I’ve read over the past year or two, particularly accounts of gay men coming out as conservative: They say — and I have no trouble believing them — that it’s […]

Human Wrongs: Are The Most Vulnerable Voices To Be Silenced? Why? And By Whom?

Tuesday, June 27th, 2017

(Brunette here.) Tyranny heralds its arrival first through confiscation of speech — via Orwellian inversion of language, and/or suppression of undesirable voices ‘by any means necessary,’ whether subtle or brutal or BOTH. If you want to determine who the aspiring tyrants are in a given society, and who they intend to oppress, look around to […]

Trump: Love The Man, or Loathe Him? (Or, The Art of The Real Deal)

Wednesday, June 14th, 2017

(Brunette again.) The fog of war — largely an information war — will eventually clear. We’ve been in the thick of it for some time now. The long dominant left-leaning media has everyone’s heads spinning with more Russia hysteria, spurious rumors based on anonymous sources, breathless speculations about who’s in or out (or at each […]
