January 30, 2009 | By admindude | Comments Off on Legal and wise | Filed in: Arizona, Guns, Kevin, Law.

Once more into the breach, dear friends… Dustin (whom I’m looking forward to meeting in May) has a posted information on a couple more firearms-related bills that are to my liking. SB 1243, clarifying when “Defensive Display” is justified, has 18 co-sponsors. This bill is similar to an AzCDL-requested bill filed last year that passed • Read More »

Fighting back

As I would leave for an evening’s entertainment during my teenage years, my parents last words to me were usually “Remember who you are and who you represent.” This would inevitably lead to a boring night for me, as I’d feel too guilty to have any REAL fun, the kind of fun that would land • Read More »

NBC sacks pro-life Super Bowl ad.

Remember that powerful pro-life ad we blogged about last week? Apparently NBC found it too effective. From a CatholicVote.org press release we just received: NBC has rejected an uplifting and positive pro-life ad submitted for its Super Bowl broadcast this Sunday. After several days of negotiations, an NBC representative in Chicago told CatholicVote.org today that • Read More »

It may be legal, but is it wise?

Dustin’s Blog mentions a push by state Senators to remove the permit requirement  to legally carry a concealed weapon in Arizona and change some of the rules regarding where you can carry and how. It essentially would remove the current requirement to have a CCW permit when carrying a concealed weapon unless you’re a prohibited • Read More »

Sound the klaxon! Ring the alarum bell! Man your battle stations! GIRD YOUR LOINS! Your Congressmen and Senators are about to give a TRILLION dollars (that’s a one with 12 zeroes following) of your and your children’s money to every Democratic sycophant and mollycoddle ever to spit-shine Reid and Pelosi’s squeaky spats.

Since all the cool kids are doing it… The things I’ve done are in bold. 1. Started your own blog 2. Slept under the stars. 3. Played in a band 4. Visited Hawaii 5. Watched a meteor shower 6. Given more than you can afford to charity 7. Been to Disneyland 8. Climbed a mountain • Read More »

This… is ONN.

Okay, everyone knows that the mainstream media isn’t as objective as they claim. But even a press cynic like me was jarred to see the following banner ad at CNN.com: Originally seen on here, I saved a screen grab just in case. Out of dark curiosity, I followed the link to find several other non-partisan • Read More »

“I hope you can forgive me for this. If it helps, I didn’t have seconds.” Don’t worry. If you didn’t like that last joke, there’ll be another one along in five seconds.

Happy 25th Birthday, Apple Macintosh

25 years ago tomorrow. I first got my hands on Mac in, well, 1984, and it was love at first click. I was working in a computer store, selling copies of MS-DOS, Lotus 1-2-3 and Wordstar for the PC, and the Mac was light years ahead of anything on a PC at the time. Still • Read More »

It’s like deja vu all over again

I didn’t really have any burning desire to see The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, and now that I’ve seen this, I have even less reason to see it (some spoilers in that link). I gave up on the Oscars when Forrest Gump won over Pulp Fiction. A 3-hour sloppy wet kiss to the baby • Read More »

“We all know how we got into this economic mess. We spent too much, borrowed with abandon, and acted like the bills would never come due. So what’s the prescription for getting out? Spending more, borrowing more, and acting like the bills will never come due.”    — Steve Chapman, Reason Online.
