The hate us. They really, really hate us.

January 30, 2013 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on The hate us. They really, really hate us. | Filed in: Democrats, GOP, Kevin, politcs.

Democrats, 2004: “What’s the matter with Kansas?”  Democrats, 2013: “The heck with Kansas. And Iowa. And Oklahoma. And Nebraska.” Since Obama’s re-election, the Democrats and the media (but I repeat myself) have grown more openly hostile towards the “rubes” in flyover country. While their honesty is refreshing, it does get a little tiring. It will • Read More »

Forgone delusion

Looks like it’s time for another article on that most elusive of Democratic dreams, a blue Mountain West. “It’s just a different world,” said Bill Carrick, a veteran Democratic strategist in Los Angeles who has worked widely in the region. “Nevada became the next California and now Arizona looks like it will become the next • Read More »

Will Obama be the end of the Democratic Party?

January 28, 2013 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Will Obama be the end of the Democratic Party? | Filed in: Democrats, Kevin.

A bunch of Democrats certainly think so.   Some activists foresee a power struggle between the national party, which aims to elect Democrats above all else, and the new group, which aims to build the president’s legacy — and may have to pressure wavering swing-state Democrats to tow the unapologetically liberal agenda laid out in his • Read More »

The Biblical Basis For Self-Defense.

January 25, 2013 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on The Biblical Basis For Self-Defense. | Filed in: Crime, Guns, Kevin, Law, politcs, Religion.

I have friends who are strong Christians and pacifists who will not raise a fist in their defense and will employ any means other than armed resistance to injustice. I respect their opinion and will not condemn them: There’s a lot of room inside the church of Christ, and as long as you’re down with • Read More »

Gun Rights Are Civil Rights

“The right to own weapons is the right to be free.” – A.E. Van Vogt Danny Glover, star of the “Lethal Weapon” movie series and a host of other violent shoot-em-ups, has a unique take on the origin of the Second Amendment. “I don’t know if people know the genesis of the right to bear • Read More »

Well that was fun.

The truth hurts, and the truth can be funny.  I’d like to say that @piersmorgan is one of Obama’s “useful idiots” in the media, but the fact is, he’s not that useful. — ExKev (@ExurbanKevin) January 16, 2013

They Told Me If Glenn Reynolds Voted for Romney…

January 11, 2013 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on They Told Me If Glenn Reynolds Voted for Romney… | Filed in: Culture, Current Events, Democrats, Guns, Kevin, politcs.

… the White House would team up with religious groups to limit civil liberties, and they were right!  During one session with a dozen religious leaders on Wednesday, Biden made a specific request to those gathered to preach to their congregations about the importance of enacting stronger gun control laws, said the Rev. Michael McBride, • Read More »

Hope for the bull

January 10, 2013 | By exurbankevin | 1 Comment | Filed in: Democrats, Guns, Kevin, politcs.

If Obama’s gun-grabbing legions are ramping up the P.R. efforts, it’s a sign that their ideas are weak and need to be sold to the American public.  The White House is working with its allies on a well-financed campaign in Washington and around the country to shift public opinion toward stricter gun laws and provide • Read More »

Weakening the bull

January 9, 2013 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Weakening the bull | Filed in: Current Events, Democrats, Guns, International, Kevin.

In my younger years, I was privileged to watch a bullfight in Quito, Ecuador. We can debate the cruelty of the sport at another date, but suffice to say a bullfight isn’t just about killing a bull: There are layers and layers of symbolism and meaning to each of the tercios, culminating with the matador‘s escotada • Read More »

Blue greens

What’s a global warming alarmist to do, now that global warming isn’t the world-ending problem we thought it was?  Global warming has stalled and will not raise world temperatures over the next five years, according to a new prediction from the British national weather service. The updated computer model of the planet’s climate lowers by • Read More »

A Day at the Range

This past Saturday, exurbanKevin organized an event down in Casa Grande where Arizona firearms enthusiasts could meet and shoot.  It was a good time and worthy of a post here at Exurban League.  You can read exurbanKevin’s post about the event by going here, or you can keep reading my account.

On Target

Part of being a marksman is being able to hit a target.  That skill requires keen perception, self-discipline, body control, and steady nerves to be successful after countless hours of practice.  I confess that I am not a marksman…yet, but I can discern some who are highly accurate practitioners of their craft. Case in point, • Read More »

Live and let live

January 3, 2013 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Live and let live | Filed in: Crime, Current Events, Guns, Kevin, politcs, Religion.

To my non-gun owning friends, I’m not asking you to like guns or own one: I’m asking you to allow me to like them and own them.  I understand you believe that guns = crime, and as much as I know that the facts are against you on this, I understand your beliefs and why • Read More »
