November 28, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on Them’s fightin’ words | Filed in: Crime, Guns, Kevin, Quotes.

“If someone has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.” Chuck Norris?Charlton Heston?Audie Murphy? Nope, the Dalai Lama. Personally, I’d think it’d be even better to shoot back and hit what you aim at, but that’s just me…

And this is NOTHING like starting off on the right foot, though it is good to see Bush Derangement Syndrome is still alive and kicking. A quick question for Ms. Collins and everyone else in favour of Dubya stepping down early: Do you REALLY want to utterly destroy your (false) charges of Bush being an • Read More »

Fowl play

When oversized frozen turkeys are outlawed, only outlaws will have oversized frozen turkeys. It all starts with the desire to not be a victim. Everything after that is just equipment and training.

“California is now a valuable touchstone to the country, a warning of what not to do. Rarely has a single generation inherited so much natural wealth and bounty from the investment and hard work of those more noble now resting in our cemeteries—and squandered that gift within a generation.”   — Victor Davis Hanson on the • Read More »

The elephant in the room is…

November 24, 2008 | By admindude | 4 Comments | Filed in: Kevin, Politics.

… the fact that the elephant is on the outside looking in, and may be for quite some time. If Obama continues appointing centerists like Larry Summers and General Jones and keeps his administration in the middle ground when it comes to the economy and social issues for four years, the chances of him being • Read More »

Nothing but posts about guns, beer and Salma Hayek until this is corrected.  And maybe football, too, but only if Cards continue to play well. Via Infinite Monkeys.

Echoes of a horror

November 24, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on Echoes of a horror | Filed in: Arizona, Crime, Kevin, Law.

One of the big reasons why we’ve been saddled with America’s Toughest Media Hound ™ all these years is the difference between his arrogant bullying of Sheriff Joe and the sheer incompetence of his predecessor, Tom Agnos. Nine people were brutally murdered in 1991 at the Wat Promkunaram temple just outside of Phoenix, and the • Read More »

Learning from the gun nuts

November 23, 2008 | By admindude | Comments Off on Learning from the gun nuts | Filed in: Kevin, MSM and New Media, Politics.

Hugh Hewitt (and others) are worried about the “Technology Gap” with the Obama campaign when it comes to social networks, text messaging and online activism, but conservatives dominate the online battlespace when it comes to the 2nd Amendment. Say Uncle explains why: Fact is, we’re winning because the facts and reason are on our side. • Read More »

Saturday Movie Blogging – The Usual Suspects

November 22, 2008 | By admindude | 3 Comments | Filed in: Kevin, Movies.

It’s not often that a movie is a joy to behold artistically and intellectually rewarding. The Usual Suspects is both, in spades. “How do you shoot the devil in the back? What if you miss?” And just like that, *poof*, he was gone.

I have long been skeptical of astrology, but check out what the star-readers say about people born on Nov. 21: Your Sun is in Scorpio in the Cancer decanate and the Leo quadrant.

Friday Music Blogging: Zomby & Crystal Castles.

Since I didn’t do a music blog last week, I’ll toss up two today (three if you add in my self-serving b-day post). And since I couldn’t find existing videos for the songs, I had to create my own. This is an ExJon Joint. If you’ve trolled the depths of YouTube fan videos, there are • Read More »

Let 500 car companies bloom.

Excellent advice for Detroit from marketing guru Seth Godin: Not only should Congress encourage/facilitate the organized bankruptcy of the Big Three, but it should also make it easy for them to be replaced by 500 new car companies… I’d spend a billion dollars to make the creation of a car company turnkey.

Commercial break.

While driving past a Lutheran church, this idea popped into my head. And, being a good capitalist, I slapped it on some CafePress T-shirts. Please buy several. I suppose I should make a Calvin and a Zwingli version…

Just like the old GOP, only moreso

November 20, 2008 | By admindude | 3 Comments | Filed in: Kevin, Politics.

After the loss in 2008 should Republicans listen to those who think they need to move to the left, or listen to other Republicans who think they’re too conservative? Consider this: Did Obama win because moderate Democrats backed him, or did he win because of the empowered, excited partisan support from the hard-left fringe of • Read More »
