You Can’t Win An Argument With A Moron With or Without a Bump Stock

“It is usually futile to try to talk facts and analysis to people who are enjoying a sense of moral superiority in their ignorance.”  — Thomas Sowell (@ThomasSowell) October 5, 2017

I’m pressed for time, we’re cleaning and packing today for our trip back to Michigan, so I asked Little Mo

to work on a post for today. He said he would but he wanted me to {{{POOF}}} the NRA link in my sidebar because of their announced support of the “Bump Fire Stock” ban. Little Mo is pretty hardcore Second Amendment rights, and took offense at their weaseling on this. Still, they’re still the most vocal proponent of gun rights, as well as the leading proponent of gun safety so I’m not willing to deep six them. So we worked out a deal; Little Mo said he’d do the post as long as he can use it as an opportunity to demonstrate the stupidity of banning the bump fire stock. He thinks it’s just another case of everyone signing on to Nuke the Whales because, as Nelson explained to Lisa, you’ve “gotta nuke something.”  

gotta nuke somethingLiberal Logic

Accordingly, Little Mo is presenting two videos for your review: #1 demonstrates how you can “bump stock” your own semi-automatic rifle with nothing more than your body parts, shoulder and finger to be precise, no external paraphernalia required:

Video #2 demonstrates that the shooter using the shoulder/finger bump firing method is - although a tad slower than the shooter whose rifle is outfitted with the official bump fire stock – is actually more accurate.

Moral of the story: Nuke the whales if you must but be advised: you just end up with radioactive whales.


Which Little Mo points out is reason enough to never get into a barroom brawl with a liberal. So thanks, Little Mo, that was very enlightening. And now  I’ll be getting back to my cleaning and packing; carry on troops.

FLOTUS FRIDAY – October 6, 2017

Did you know there is a woman in Texas who paid a fortune for 9 cosmetic surgeries to make herself look like Melania Trump? She looked perfectly fine before the surgeries but I guess if anyone can make you suffer from self esteem issues it would be Melania. 


Odd, isn’t it? Because during the entire 8 years of the Obama Occupation, during which Lady M reigned as the unchallenged fashion icon of America, I can’t recall anyone having even one cosmetic surgery to make themselves look more like Michelle.

I wonder why that is.

 Certainly smells like racism to me.


What else could it be?

What Do You Mean “Fake” News?

The MSM goes into apoplexy every time President Trump accuses them of “fake news,” pretending to be insulted he would even imply they are anything but 100% honest, right and true. Something he did again this morning.

fake news

Maybe this will help them understand (Via Instapundit – highlights mine):


Corrections: An earlier version of this article stated that associates of the Koch brothers proposed and lobbied Congress to pass the law establishing Puerto Rico's fiscal control board. There is no evidence of any Koch involvement in the passage of the law. An earlier version of this article also stated that the fiscal control board had reduced the minimum wage in Puerto Rico to 4 dollars an hour. The board did not lower the minimum wage, the governor did. And the governor raised it this year. An earlier version of this article stated that the U.S. Congress imposed austerity measures on Puerto Rico. The fiscal control board established by Congress instructed the commonwealth to work towards balancing its budget. The governor decided what cuts to make.

Not just wrong but 100%, diametrically wrong. Good job, Politico. It never occurred to the editors to check the allegations of Alejandra Rosa, even though she clearly exposed her bias in the wrap up:

I try to be optimistic…But then I remember my president mentioning the debt of my island in the same sentence as the losses of my people, and I worry. Or maybe, instead of worrying, we should start demanding from the federal government the resources and the dignity that we have been denied for decades. By doing this, perhaps, the hurricane will finally leave Puerto Rico.

So perhaps the media can forgive us for continuing to treat all of the propaganda news they pump out as questionable at best, biased for certain and quite possibly 100% fake. Don't blame us for our cynicism, you created it.

From the Rabbit Hole

So what have we learned from the Las Vegas massacre so far?

1. There is no level so low that the Left won’t stoop in order to advance their agenda, in this case gun-control. (Leftist Anti-Gun Group Refuses to ‘Let a Good Crisis Go to Waste’ After Vegas Shooting)

evil assaule lighter gunUnderstanding the Left’s gun safety vocabulary

2. The incident proves, again, that when seconds count police are minutes away.

The later isn’t a criticism of the police, simply acknowledgement of the obvious. So no, we don’t need to “debate the gun-control issue” again as the Left is predictably demanding. The Second Amendment is not open to debate.

armed-citizens-unarmed-subjects-tyranny“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.” Armed people are citizens. Unarmed people are subjects.

And by the way, all you anti-Trumpers out there who think that Trump is a fascist: I would think you would support gun rights. The very fact that you don’t leads me to believe that either you don’t even believe your own clap-trap or you truly are morons. Or both.

Heartbreaker: Tom Petty Checks Out

Three little Injuns out on a canoe,
One tumbled overboard and then there were two…

Sadly, it turned out to be true after all. After a full day of misinformation and premature rumors of death it appears that Tom Petty did indeed reach the end of the line last night. There have undoubtedly been weeks that have gotten off to a worse start than this one has, but I’m hard pressed to recall one right off hand.

And so we remember Tom…I know he offered up dozens of great songs, with and without his Heartbreakers, but I was always partial to the hand he played in the Traveling Wilburys.

younger days_traveling-wilburys

The original Traveling Wilburys: Orbison, Lynne, Dylan, Harrison, Petty


The group originally consisted of Roy Orbison, Jeff Lynne, Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Tom Petty. And then, in the wink of an eye, there were two. It does sort of feel like the End of the Line.

Where oh where has the time gone, eh? In Tom’s memory, and because he wrote some of the best driving songs ever, I suggest you download some of his tunes and head on out to the country. That’s right, take a ride - windows down, radio blasting, rockin’ down the highway. Runnin’ Down a Dreamand do it now before you run out of pavement.

Breaking News: Heads I Win, Tails You Lose

Legend has it that whenever Dorothy Parker’s phone or doorbell rang she would utter “what fresh hell can this be?” That’s how I feel when I turn on the news.

So indeed, what fresh hell is this? Nobody knows nuthin’ yet. Except that the perpetrator was a white guy - Were he not, we still wouldn’t know his name.

All we know for sure is that the left will politicize the Las Vegas massacre for their purposes. Either the shooter was a Trump supporter and therefore all Trump supporters are responsible. Or, if he was not, he was driven to madness by Trump. Heads they win, tails you lose.

heads tails

Because it’s Vegas, baby, and the House always wins.

“There is a tide in the affairs of men, Which taken at the flood, leads on to fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their life is bound in shallows and in miseries. On such a full sea are we now afloat. And we must take the current when it serves, or lose our ventures.” – Shakespeare, Julius Caesar

The most charitable thing I can say about Stephen Paddock is that he failed to take the tide at the flood. Rest assured the Left will not miss it.

How Will You #NonNFL?

Many of us are accustomed to working NFL Sundays around game time. However I understand that since many of us will be participating in the the #IHatetheNFL blackout today, they may find themselves with some extra time on their hands so I thought I’d tender a few suggestions as to what might be done with this unexpected windfall. Here are a few things I came up with:

1. Launch a countdown clock to O.J.’s release.

Update: Rats, they already let the most dubiously innocent man in America out. Alternate game day  plan: develop an interactive computer game called “Where In the World is O.J. Simpson Searching For the Real Killer.”  That would be a killer app.

Knife Guys Finish First o j simpson

2. Draft a disaster recovery plan for San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz who apparently didn’t know that it was part of her job description. And now she’s so busy complaining about Trump not helping enough that she doesn’t even have time to go to meetings let alone put a plan together. Don’t worry if you have no experience at this type of thing, apparently Mayor Cruz doesn’t either.

3. Begin (or finish) your Christmas shopping. It’s never too early to start the next holiday season, and Amazon is open all day.


4. Can something. I’m partial to pickled things so I would recommend pickled peaches:


dilly beans:


or my all time favorite, pickled plums.


of course it is almost Halloween, so feel free to do whatever sounds good to you.

I’m sure you have other great ideas about how to spend a lovely autumn Sunday afternoon. How will you #NonNFL?
