Plott Hound 1/31

I’m still looking for one! Warren Buffet buys News and Record and other local papers.  (I think we need a discussion about anti-trust laws for the media) Gun legislation. Greensboro City Council member is a police informant. Man deported three times since 2008, arrested again in Wake County.

I Have Become Libertarian!

Having spent way too much of my short life arguing with “libertarians” on Vox Day’s blog, yesterday, I am more convinced than ever that “libertarianism” is a political unicorn, or, maybe, a leprechaun. Leprechauns are a little more masculine and libertarians seem to be mostly male (and possibly drunk). Whichever, its not a real thing. […]

Synchronicity

On the same subject as this post. Flipping channels, I came across an interview with a man involved with the Reginal Denney beating during the LA riots of the early 90s. He was unapologetic about the chimpout. I looked up VH1’s schedule and found out its a Rock Doc called Uprising:Hip Hop and the LA […]

Gun Control, Immigration And Reality

I keep hearing that diversity is our strength, but reading the FBIs 2011 national Gang Threat Assessment, I have my doubts. For instance, we’ve all heard about the Crips, Bloods and Latin Kings, but how about: Asian Gangs “Asian gangs, historically limited to regions with large Asian populations, are expanding throughout communities nationwide. Although often […]

NC Schools Doing Away With Cursive

Found this on Plott Hound WRAL: “Cursive handwriting, once a standard part of the three R’s in elementary school, is no longer required to be taught in North Carolina. The death of cursive instruction is linked to the national common core standards that North Carolina and 44 other states have adopted to standardize educational goals […]

Gun Confiscation-How I’d Do It

The talk of physical gun confiscation turns pretty quickly to “kicking in doors would be a blood bath”. That’s not how to go about it, though, you can’t kick in 100 million doors, the logistics make it impossible and, more importantly, the PR would be terrible. After the first thousand or so, people would be […]

Great White In Pamlico Sound

WCTI12:   A 16-foot long Great White Shark’s tracking beacon shows the fish made a visit to Eastern Carolina’s Pamlico Sound Monday afternoon.  The shark’s beacon pinged right off the shore of Ocracoke Island.  The shark crossed through the Ocracoke Inlet Monday afternoon and then left by the same route Monday evening.

Dem Rep Says Women Should Serve In Combat, But Can’t Handle “Assault Rifles”

From The Blaze: “Rep. Carolyn McCarthy — a strong proponent for women serving in military combat roles — appeared on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight Thursday to make the case for Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s assault weapons ban.  To that end, McCarthy argued that women should use traditional rifles rather than assault rifles because the former would […]

The Decision

This is a follow up to my last post. The power is out due to a natural disaster. It has been out for a day or two and is expected to be out for a while according to your battery powered radio. Your family is safe somewhere else and you’re home alone. You hear vehicles […]

The Glorious Revolution Of Caesar Egregio

I was going to explore political ideologies and see what they were about and which one fit me, but that turned out to be tedious and boring. They’re all shades along a continuum and there’s no way to nail down, for instance, the difference between paleoconservatism and traditionalist conservatism   without getting into a Clintonian grammatical […]

Fred On Diversity

  “I’ve been thinking about fault lines, and fractures, and diversity, and when it’s all going to implode. I hope I’m still around because it is going to be one gorgeous show. Few things are as entertaining as a truly good disaster. What is going to kill us is diversity. It isn’t working well. By […]

Marines To Take Up Yoga

The U.S. Marine Corps, known for turning out some of the military’s toughest warriors, is studying how to make its troops even tougher through meditative practices, yoga-type stretching and exercises based on mindfulness.
