    Greetings All; Here is another thought provoking discussion on what we can do when the world we know & love falls apart. Last week I had posted some thoughts on using an air rifle to remove garden raiders/pests. So after talking to a friend of mine [Jim Chapman], he recommended this article from the mag. Outdoor Life. [www.outdoorlife.com] He goes through a very long list of air rifles & their different uses. Air guns have come a very long way since the days of the Daisy Red Ryder's. There are some rifles that can hit a target out to over...

    Why I Can’t Stand Author Piper Kerman of Orange is the New Black Piper Kerman’s Orange is the New Black was a best seller several years ago, which spawned a popular Netflix T.V. series of the same name. Less than 50 pages into the book I couldn’t stand her. Her behavior and attitude later in the book confirmed that feeling. The actual charge she does time for doesn’t bother me nearly as much as what kind of person Piper is – and isn’t. Among other things, Piper Kerman is a self-centered elitist snob, and I straight up do not like...

That is a long time for someone so popular to be off the air due to a contract issue, which is what Fox reported back in April. She may be gone but people are doing their best to bring her back with 9,300 names as of June 20 on a petition that is asking Fox News to... "Bring back Andrea Tantaros!"

    Part III of black powder nalizes with a discussion of defouling, types of bullets and more. Blackpowder fouls a lot and if you don't dry-brush out your barrel after every couple of shots, your bullet or ball will start becoming dicult to push down the barrel. If you brush it and dump out the residue, you can shoot all day doing that. I don't recommend any type of lube, as you might contaminate the powder and it won't help you in this operation. Use a tight shotgun-type brush for best results. Following those procedures and tweaking them to suit you...

The response by the newly created republic was monstrous.

    Donald Trump is straightforward, direct and brutally honest, a man who weighs up a situation and will give you the facts. Perhaps that is why so many people are afraid. There has been a lot of controversial statements about Trump and his displeasure of immigrants, especially Africans. Not so, Trump has consideration and affection toward other races. In a recent video, Trump said, “look at my African-American over here” and raised decent opinions about the man. Therefore, even though he might appear to have a distinct dislike for Africans, Trump does realize that they too are human. However, I would...

    February of this year we reported that Jordan had begun quietly hosting a deployment of U.S. or Coalition MQ-9 Reapers at Muwaffaq airbase between February and March 2015. New satellite imagery released in Google Earth shows further developments at the airbase, located 33 miles south of the Syrian border. Newly erected clamshell shelters — often paired with U.S. drone deployments — can be seen in the March 2016 space snapshots, as well as new parking hardstands to support a greater numbers of unmanned aircraft. The satellite imagery, acquired by Airbus Defense and Space, confirms that the Reapers were joined by...

"When you live through something like 'Orange is the New Black' ... the real characters are better," said Stewart, who served five months behind bars in 2004 to 2005 for insider trading. She conceded that she does not watch the Netflix series, premiering its fourth season on June 17. “Too close to home?” Handler asked. “Well, no. It’s not as good as the...

    Women’s rights leader Victoria Woodhull, though not especially well known today, once attracted more media attention than just about any female in the United States. A jack-of-all-trades, Woodhull alternately tried her hand at stockbroking, newspaper publishing, lobbying, public speaking, clairvoyance and philanthropy, and even ran for president long before women won the right to vote. Her unconventional lifestyle and radical political views helped her make powerful friends and equally powerful enemies. On the 175th anniversary of her birth, here are nine things you should know about one of the most controversial figures of her time.

    My smallest concealed carry is a Smith & Wesson Bodyguard 380. By all accounts a quality pistol. In practice, though, I increasingly dislike it. The long 12-pound trigger pull prevents accurate, consistent shooting. After over a year and many hundreds of rounds, the results are all over the place. By comparison, I can place a six-inch result at 45-feet and at 21-feet, mostly in 3-inch, using either a Sig Sauer P320SC or, almost as well, with a S&W M&P Shield 40. At 21-feet, the S&W 380 Bodyguard is typically 8-12 inches. I like the smaller size of the S&W Bodyguard...

Yesterday it was discovered that Judge Curiel, an activist for illegal immigration, works on behalf of San Diego La Raza immigration activists to select illegal aliens for scholarships. It is transparently obvious to those who are following the events that Judge Curiel not only holds a bias against Mr. Trump, but also holds a political agenda specifically intended to protect his ideological ‘Open Border’ advocacy.

    I’m a big fan of coyotes. I enjoy seeing them, hearing them and hunting them. I think the reason I like them so much is that I’ve always had a lot of respect for a underdog, which the coyote surely is compared to its more media divisive cousin the wolf, or other charismatic megafauna like the bear. Similar to Rodney Dangerfield, coyotes “don’t get no respect.” Unlike wolves there are no national groups crying for their protection, no one is pleading their case on the steps of the capital. In spite of this, coyotes are without a doubt one of...

I agree with the union on this.Since price controls caused a shortage of toilet paper, the only way the employer could get enough toilet paper was to illegally buy it on the black market for a price that was higher than the government controlled price.Now the government is accusing...

    Hey everyone been taking a break for awhile and I wanted to talk about a new TV show that really isn't that new its been around for awhile and I only recently began to watch some of it at the behest of my Catholic friends. They asked me to write about it and give my take on it because this show is Anti-catholic and irreverent. Also the main character is a queer. The writer is New York Times columnist and comedian Dan Savage, an Irish ex-Catholic homosexual liberal. Savage's articles are generally crap. Attacks on Christians, particularly catholics, attacks on...

    Gabriel Sherman writes that the poor reaction to Megyn Kelly’s primetime FOX special, Megyn Kelly Presents, has spooked the news anchor as she positions herself for negotiations at the end of her Fox News contract–so much so that a phone call to her publicist led to an immediate hang-up.

    Two years after Obama revokes trademark protection for Washington Redskins, 90% of Native Americans say they are not offended by the term In June 2014, the Obama administration revoked trademark protection for the Washington Redskins’ name because some people thought it was offensive.This sets a horrible precedent.Just about every R-rated movie includes content that someone would consider offensive, whether that content be violence, sex, profanity, etc. The same can be said for the content of many books, the lyrics of many songs, the content of many paintings, etc. If any copyright, patent, trademark, etc., can be revoked because someone finds it...
  • Border Patrol agents arrest Pakistani man

    "The FBI was in possession of records consisting of photographs and travel records, as well as written accounts from other government agencies, which show that the statements Muhammad made during his interviews by the USBP and the FBI were materially false, fictitious or fraudulent." Why would Juvaid Muhammad be lying and trying to enter the U.S. illegally? What could possibly be his objective? Is it not legitimate to be concerned that he might be part of a jihad cell? Or would that be "racist" and "Islamophobic"? *snip* "The FBI was in possession of records consisting of photographs and travel records,...
