21 Feet

August 31, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 4 Comments | Filed in: Crime, Guns, Kevin.

21 feet is considered the threat radius for an armed attacker by law enforcement, and the Tueller Drill was designed as a way to help police officers and armed citizens to prepare for an attacker within 7 yards. But what does getting rushed by an attacker 21 feet away feel like? Something like this. Via • Read More »

No more words

August 31, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 2 Comments | Filed in: Arizona, Crime, Family, Kevin.

When did “Pimping” become an accepted word to use in every day conversation? Pimping isn’t glamorous. It’s not attractive. It’s not desirable. It’s men sexually exploiting women for money, and I confess that I’ve been known to use “pimping” when I mean “promoting”, and in fact did so on Saturday morning as I left my • Read More »

Most. Tech-Savvy President. Ever!

Keep an eye on your inbox. Scammers pumping out emails that try to trick recipients into parting with large sums of cash are getting a helping hand from the Democratic National Committee. According to a researcher with anti-spam company Cloudmark, 419fraudsters have been relaying a “significant” amount of messages through the democrats.org domain name. The • Read More »

Saturday Movie Blogging – Ghostbusters

August 29, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: Kevin, Movies.

This popped up in heavy rotation recently on AMC, and I was surprised to see how well it’s held up since it debuted in 1984. The fashions were a little scary (why did we think that women with shoulders like Lawrence Taylor were attractive?), but the jokes aren’t dated and performances are still crisp. Plus • Read More »

A simple test

August 28, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 2 Comments | Filed in: Democrats, Humor, Kevin.

Think on the following: A fat, corrupt bloated politician who’s sole qualification for office is his family connections and who should have been run out of town long ago for high crimes and misdemeanors (and much worse). Now think of someone OTHER than Ted Kennedy. I’m sure that the mainstream media is going to continue • Read More »

Ace links with The Matt Cooper Walkback Game: Ouch, I got a splinter. Father, why have you forsaken me? My entries… Tweet 1: I still need to use my key to get into the condo building?

Just thinkin’

August 27, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Just thinkin’ | Filed in: Current Events, Democrats, Kevin.

What are the chances of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman being mentioned only in passing at the end of O.J. Simpson’s eventual obituary, just as Mary Jo Kopechne was mentioned at the very end of just a few of Ted Kennedy’s obituaries? Slim to none, I’ll bet.

‘You know, Kennedy’s death is a lot like 9-11.’

Reporter Matt Cooper, formerly of Time magazine and currently of lefty site Talking Points Memo, finds the perfect comparison for the death of Ted Kennedy: It feels a bit like 9/11 on Martha’s Vineyard. End-of-summer weather is achingly beautiful but the mood is melancholy because of Teddy. Yes, the death of an ethically-desolate 77-year-old is • Read More »

Sure he’s Harry, but aren’t we all?

Rep. Harry Mitchell (D – Ariz.) held a telephone town hall last night. Due to a teaching commitment, I was unable to call in, but a few local bloggers did. Writer X provides his Republican perspective at his great blog, The 100 Most Annoying Things. Also, CPMAZ offers a Democratic perspective at Random Musings. I’m • Read More »

Shotgun!

August 27, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 5 Comments | Filed in: Guns, Kevin, Sports.

My early Christmas gift to myself: A used Mossberg 590 12 gauge pump-action shotgun with a 20″ barrel, improved cylinder choke, heat shield, bead sights and an 8+1 capacity with 2 3/4″ shells, which make it a nice little pump-action gun for 3-gun competition, although I may need better sights if I end up shooting • Read More »

Blind eye in the sky

August 25, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: Crime, Kevin, Law, Technology.

Law enforcement agencies in Britain have turned to an extensive, intrusive system of closed-circuit cameras in an effort to deter crime and catch criminals. And it’s not working. Only one crime was solved by each 1,000 CCTV cameras in London last year, a report into the city’s surveillance network has claimed. The internal police report • Read More »

If a “public option” that competes with private health insurance companies is a good thing, why aren’t private schools that compete for students with public schools also a good thing? Just thinkin’…

Plans to shutter the prison at Guantanamo Bay are proceeding apace. Looks like Crazy Barack is holding a Midnight “Going Out of Business” Sale and Every Detainee MUST GO! The Obama administration reportedly has released a prisoner from the Guantanamo Bay detention camp accused of attacking U.S. troops in Afghanistan. According to Reuters, the administration • Read More »

Saturday Movie Blogging – The Killing Fields

August 22, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Saturday Movie Blogging – The Killing Fields | Filed in: Kevin, Movies.

Another fantastic movie from the greatest year ever for movies, 1984, and a reminder to everyone that the absence of war is not necessarily peace. The best way to get a grasp of just how powerful this movie is (without giving away the ending) is this music video of Mike Oldfield‘s haunting, tragic score to • Read More »
