Gun Blog Black List

An entry that’s not Lyme-related. Y’all must be excited.

I’m going to talk about Ferguson, MO, for a second.

Don’t worry, I’ll be quick.

First they came for the Communists,

and I didn’t speak up,

because I wasn’t a Communist.

Then they came for the Jews,

and I didn’t speak up,

because I wasn’t a Jew.

Then they […]

You broke it, you bought it.

So Starbucks has said that they would like for gun owners to NOT carry in stores, any more. This is following one of the stupidest fights I’ve seen people get into in the 6-ish years I’ve been a part of the “gun owner” demographic.

From The Practical Tactical Podcast:

One internet poster said: “I never […]

The importance of timing.

I don’t “do” 9/11 posts.

I think I’ve done a couple of posts on that day in the years since I’ve had my blog, and people have asked where I was when it happened, and at this point, it doesn’t matter, because I wasn’t in NYC, I didn’t know anyone in the towers, on the […]

On Marriage Equality

I want to point something out to folks…

Forrest and I are in a domestic partnership. We’ve been together for just over two years. Neither one of us is in any particular rush to get married, but we have talked extensively and come to the conclusion/decision that we’re going to be together as long as […]

Ben Shapiro vs. Piers Morgan = scary hilarity.


Really, Piers? You’re going to say “How dare you” and think that’s a reasonable way to end an argument?

Sir, you have some learnin’ to do. And stop passing the buck. Own the words that come out of your mouth…Ben does. Good job, Mr. Shapiro!

So, according to Arizona…

…every woman who crosses the state line could be pregnant at any time, without knowing it. Seriously…think about it. If she has sex, no matter where she is in her cycle, she’s just risked having a 2-week-old fetus (by the definition of this law) MAGICALLY IMPLANTED into her uterus.

Dear World,

What is it with […]

“Legitimate rape”? Are you kidding me?

Jezebel pretty much covers the snark portion of this situation, so I’ll leave that to them.

You guys want to know why I’m not talking about politics, anywhere?



Yes, “everyone.”

Have you ever heard of “magical thinking”? It’s very […]

*[EDITED AND UPDATED]* All I’m going to say about Obamacare can be summed up in this short entry.

(I posted this on Facebook just now, and I know there are folks who read here who aren’t on my FB who might have something to add.)

***Okay, so in comments on FB, someone asked me where I got this idea. I’ve gotten it EVERYWHERE. The places that aren’t outright saying this can’t agree on […]

Santorum’s out. [and so, apparently, is my attention span]

Easter weekend and a sick child have proven to be the ingredients necessary to take Santorum out of the Presidential race. He says he’s going to try for the Southern states in a couple of months, but…yeah, we don’t really count when it comes to elections, unfortunately. We’re not dense enough in population, guy.

There’s […]

Internment camps, again? Interesting concept, America. Also: FAIL. [UPDATED]

Yes, I’m behind on this news, seeing as how it began far before Thanksgiving.

Apparently Sens. Carl Levin, D-Mich., and John McCain, R-Ariz, feel as though “reaching across the aisle” to agree on something involves fightin’ them some terr’ists, m’kay:

A bill on the Senate floor raises the question of whether the Senate has forgotten […]
