We’re still winning

November 30, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 8 Comments | Filed in: Family, Guns, Kevin, Men.

Sure, the days of BB gun advertisements in comic books are long gone, but that doesn’t mean that little boys have stopped playing with toyguns. I had to satiate my need for firepower with cap guns and my friend’s air rifles and could only WISH for toys like this. So what’s so special about a • Read More »

Sal DiCiccio named “Nanny of the Month”

November 30, 2009 | By exurbanjon | Comments Off on Sal DiCiccio named “Nanny of the Month” | Filed in: Arizona, Jon, Politics, Religion.

This is an honor no right-leaning councilmember wants to get. The libertarian watchdogs at Reason.tv have named Sal DiCiccio and the Phoenix City Council “Nanny of the Month” for November 2009. Their offense? Stopping a church from feeding the hungry on its own property. No, really. CrossRoads United Methodist Church is located on the corner • Read More »

Mike Gallagher is right

November 30, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 3 Comments | Filed in: Crime, GOP, Kevin, Law, Politics.

Hang on to that headline, folks, you won’t see that very often in these parts. Driving into work today, I tuned into the Mike Gallagher show. I rarely listen to him because I don’t listen to talk radio shows that rely on polemics instead of logic, and as a result, I don’t listen to a • Read More »

Saturday Movie Blogging – The Godfather

November 28, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Saturday Movie Blogging – The Godfather | Filed in: Kevin, Movies.

Quite simply, the best and most influential American movie of the last 50 years, and if it isn’t, then the sequel is. If you haven’t seen either, buy them now. P.S. People have told me that there was a Godfather Part III, but I don’t believe them: I think it doesn’t really exist, just like • Read More »

If you’re reading this on your computer. If you have a car. If you have two cars. If you own your own home. If that home has more than two rooms. If you are 100% certain you’re going to have supper tonight. If you can tell your government you don’t like what it’s doing without • Read More »

Wednesday Music Blogging – U2

My absolute favourite U2 song. If I could throw this Lifeless lifeline to the wind I’d leave this heart of clay See you walk, walk away Into the night Through the rain Into the half-light Through the flame

A very bad idea, indeed

November 25, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on A very bad idea, indeed | Filed in: Crime, Guns, Kevin, Law, Military.

The told me that if Glenn Reynolds voted for John McCain, fringe groups would pressure the government to put troops on the streets to patrol civilians, and they were right! After the sickening murder of a 9-year-old boy in Washington, our friend Spencer Ackerman made an impassioned plea: U.S. Central Command chief General David Petraeus • Read More »

Even lefty hipsters are turning against Obama.

November 24, 2009 | By exurbanjon | 2 Comments | Filed in: Art, Culture, Jon, Politics.

First SNL, now this? I guess the honeymoon really is over. A new offensive has been launched against President Obama, and if it catches on it may make as much noise as a Birther at a Town Hall. It’s the new “Hope Is Fading Fast” t-shirt from LA streetwear company Freshjive — a sad, disappointed • Read More »

Famous Felons Frown on Palin

November 24, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 3 Comments | Filed in: GOP, Kevin, Politics.

Fallen domestic goddess and convicted criminal Martha Stewart is not a big fan of Sarah Palin. “‘She’s very boring to me,” Stewart replied. ‘She’s very boring and, to me, something of a dangerous person.’ How so? ‘She’s so confused,’ Stewart said.” Surely, Ms. Stewart, given your upbringing, you can up with better musteline words than • Read More »

Whew, glad we dodged THAT bullet

November 23, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: GOP, Kevin, MSM and New Media, Politics.

Wow, what a blessing that Katie Couric was so eager to prove that she’s a real journalist by raking Sarah Palin over the coals, otherwise we’d think she’s a drunken bimbo that gets liquored up and dirty-dances in front of her own daughters. Oh, wait. Nevermind. Via Rightwing Sparkle on Twitter.

No future for (AS)U

November 23, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 2 Comments | Filed in: Arizona, Football, Kevin, Sports.

If this were a normal year, right about now, I’d start talking up ASU football and talking smack about U of A football. But it’s not a normal year, because the Sun Devils absolutely suck, and the Mildcats are playing pretty good. Even the Brits (known for heroic stands against overwhelming odds) know when it’s • Read More »

Doubling down on a pair of sixes

November 22, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Doubling down on a pair of sixes | Filed in: Environment, Kevin, Politics, Science.

What do you do after the release of hacked emails proves your “climate change research” is nothing but a fraud? Ramp your rhetoric up to eleven, of course. The world is now firmly on course for the worst-case scenario in terms of climate change, with average global temperatures rising by up to 6C by the • Read More »

Saturday Movie Blogging – Desperado

November 21, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: Kevin, Movies.

Aside from being the breakout performance of the patron babe of Exurbanleague, Desperado is a tight little action film that really shows off Robert Rodriguez’s chops as a director, and if you haven’t already seen it, go out and rent/buy a copy of El Mariachi as well. If writing good short stories is the ultimate • Read More »

Now I REALLY want one

November 20, 2009 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Now I REALLY want one | Filed in: Guns, Humor, Kevin, Military, Sport.

Some say that my ridiculous obsession lifelong dream of owning an M163 Vulcan Air Defence System is a tad (or more than a tad) silly. I say it’d work a whole lot better at skeet shooting than an AMX-13. Via Gunnuts.net.

A Very Important Announcement

Hoarse race

November 20, 2009 | By exurbankevin | 6 Comments | Filed in: Arizona, Kevin, Politics.

Rasmussen has the primary race for McCain’s Senate seat as a dead heat, and Bill “Thug4Life” Kristol says that Palin will be the deciding factor that wins it for McCain. Maybe. This is a tricky one for Palin: If she sits it out or endorses Hayworth, she risks alienating the middle of the GOP, and • Read More »

A pound’s a pound the world around

There’s a lot of truth to this: In the States, pronouncing foreign words ‘correctly’ is a high-status indicator. It’s not just about demonstrating your racial sensitivity. It’s a way of advertising your membership of the elite. But, speaking as a Canadian citizen and Arizona resident, it’s not the whole story. If there’s another word for • Read More »

A Pit Bull with Lip Gloss.

The inexplicably famous Levi Johnston inexplicably showed up at GQ‘s “Men of the Year” party last night in Hollywood. He was wearing pancake makeup and lip gloss. Inexplicably. Sounds like Levi’s on the backside of his 15 minutes: Levi, who had on a vest, yellow pocket square and what appeared to be pancake makeup, wandered • Read More »
