Black Lives Matter: The Communist Connection

Anyone that ever had any ambivalence about seeing the BLM “movement” as anti-American, racist anarchists need be ambivalent no longer, as Tyler O’Neil at PJ Media reports:

Two days after Cuban dictator Fidel Castro bit the dust, Black Lives Matter memorialized him, and the reasons for it are not pretty. Castro killed thousands of his own people, imprisoned many more, caused 1 million refugees to flee to the United States, and even canceled Christmas. But Black Lives Matter celebrated him — because he provided a refuge for cop killers.

If you’ve already read the first six articles in this series you have at least a basic background in the philosophical, theological and political implications of weapon ownership and use.  This article–and the next two–concern practical, moral and legal issues, as well as exploring some of the primary ways that carrying a concealed weapon must necessarily change one’s life.  Keep in mind that I am not an attorney, and that you are responsible for becoming familiar with the law where you live and wherever you travel.  An article I wrote–more in a serious vein–on the same topic may also be worth your time.

Secret Squirrel in disguise on recon mission…

You’ve seen them around the neighborhood, little bushy-tailed terrorists, scampering here and there, watching everything and everyone, always wary, never relaxed. That’s right, I’m talking about our domestic terrorists: squirrels! Think I’m kidding? See what The New York Post has to say about it:

Never-Ending Smart Gun Stupidity

Bad ideas, particularly those dreamed up by progressives, never die. They merely lurk in the shadows, waiting for honest, law-abiding American’s attention to momentarily wander. Such is the case with so-called “smart” guns. Like microstamping, smart guns are a brilliant solution to a nonexistent problem, a solution posed, from time to time, by progressives who must eternally seek to disarm free men, for without such disarmament, they can never achieve their utopian plans. Hillary Clinton named the very people that must be disarmed, the “irredeemable deplorables,” who had the temerity to take offense and deny her the office rightfully hers, because she was female, and most of all, because she was Hillary Clinton and it was her turn.

 An 18-year-old Somali man [Abdul Razak Ali Artan, pictured above] was behind an attack involving a car and butcher knife on the campus of Ohio State University Monday [11-28-16] that left [eleven] injured, law enforcement sources told Fox News.

After the suspect plowed his vehicle into the crowd, officials said he got out of the vehicle and began attacking people with a butcher knife before he was shot and killed by a campus police officer.

The attacker was a ‘legal permanent resident,’ according to an official with direct knowledge of the investigation.

Mad Dog: Just The Kind We Need

Photo 2One may say what they like about George W. Bush and his policies, but our military members loved him. Having served, I can testify that our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines (Coasties too) know who actually cares about them and who does not. President Bush regularly visited military hospitals and other installations with no press notice or presence and no fanfare. He was there to do what he could to encourage and thank our wounded warriors, and those still bearing the battle. Having been a military fighter pilot no doubt partially informed his caring.

All-Time Favorite Student Comic Writings, Part 1

My kids, in their attempts at serious, academic writing, are often inadvertently hilarious.  It’s been two years since my last posting of some of my favorites, so I thought you, gentle readers, could use a good laugh to get your weeks off to a light-hearted start.  So for the next three weeks, a reiteration of some of my favorites.

I’ve been collecting the inadvertently funny things my students write for nearly 20 years. Some are the result of typographical errors, others an artifact of limited vocabularies running headlong into earnest attempts to expand them. Others are the unintentional marriage of two different concepts like this one:

Uh, right…

Perhaps we will never know why Shakespeare wrote the tragedy of Romeo and Juliet the way that he did. It will remain a mystery to the world. But I know one thing. If he did go out in public, tomorrow, and pull his pants down, people would applaud.

That delightful juxtaposition of seemingly exclusive ideas was the result of a discussion of Julius Caesar, a mention of Romeo and Juliet, and a daily saying by Edna St. Vincent Millay simultaneously written on the chalkboard:

A person who publishes a book willfully appears before the populace with his pants down…

I’m still not sure from where the applause came.

For this week, and two weeks to follow, enjoy my all-time favorites courtesy of my wonderful and endlessly fascinating students!  Continue reading
