Annie Oakley: A True Feminist Icon

“The fact is, guns do more for female empowerment than modern feminism which prefers government as their protector. But legal ownership gives you real power, equalizing the battle between you and evil. Ask any girl: The confidence from learning to shoot a pistol is far superior to any gender studies course, and a stalker is less likely to stalk if you can ventilate his groin. Which is why a whirring bullet is the ideal rape whistle and the real feminist icon should be Annie Oakley, not Sandra Fluke.” – Greg Gutfeld, Guns empower women more than feminism [via]

Bullet Proof Vests Cause Gun Violence in California

You're not gonna believe this one.

California Congressman Mike Honda (a Democrat, of course) has introduced legislation that would prohibit civilians from buying bullet proof vests.  His theory is that without a bullet-proof vest, the bad guys won't commit crimes that might result in the cops shooting at them.

Rep. Mike Honda, D-San Jose, has announced legislation that would block civilians from accessing military-grade body armor to prevent criminals from using them in gun battles with law enforcement.

You think I'm joking?  Well, here it is:

Applying Honda's steel-trap logic to other venues would lead to the obvious conclusion that if seat belts and air bags were banned, then miscreant speeders would not speed.

Banning life jackets would prevent boats from sinking.

Banning condoms would eliminate unwanted pregnancy.

How is it possible that a brainless California Congressman can produce such a riotous brain fart?  Yes, I know, the answer is simple - No brain, no pain. No pain for him, lotsa pain for us.

What will those Krazy Kalifornian's ban next - bullet proof perambulators?

Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President

"The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

President Theodore Roosevelt in the Kansas City Star", 149
May 7, 1918

Here are two more from T.R. that warrant cogitation

“There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism…. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.”

Speech before the Knights of Columbus, New York (12 October 1915).

“The death-knell of the republic had rung as soon as the active power became lodged in the hands of those who sought, not to do justice to all citizens, rich and poor alike, but to stand for one special class and for its interests as opposed to the interests of others.”

Labor Day speech at Syracuse, NY, Sept 7, 1903

Samuel Colt - Happy Birthday.

Samuel Colt (July 19, 1814 – January 10, 1862)

If Samuel Colt was alive today, he’d be 200 years old. Col. Colt was a true American Entrepreneur that enjoyed the benefits and freedoms of the Constitution of the United States of America to better himself.  At the same time he enabled Americans’ natural, civil and Constitutionally protected right to keep and bear arms. By conceiving, designing, and manufacturing hundreds of thousands of guns – using interchangeable parts on an assembly line – Mr. Colt mass-produced armed self defense.
Colt spread his product throughout every strata of American society.

The final word on Mr. Colt’s contribution to humanity comes from one of his company’s ads: “God made man, Sam Colt made them equal.”

Pull Up Them Drawers Homey!

OCALA, Fla. – It's now illegal to wear low pants that expose underwear or bare buttocks in parts of Ocala.

The city council voted unanimously Tuesday to approve an ordinance that prohibit anyone on city property from wearing pants two inches below their natural waist.

The Ocala Star-Banner reports this is the second time Councilwoman Mary Rich requested the ordinance. In 2009, no one seconded her motion. Mayor Kent Guinn said in 2009 that one of his objects was that the ordinance would lead to profiling. Rich told him the ordinance applies to both genders and all races.

The sagging pants ordinance is enforceable on city-owned or leased property, including sidewalks, streets, parks, sports, recreation and public transportation facilities and parking lots.

It is punishable by jail time and a $500 fine.
