That is exactly why I was watching this video!

Those pieces fell out this afternoon while cleaning my gun. If you have a Mossberg 500 and need to take it apart for cleaning, watch the whole thing.

Women should dress modestly or expect to ‘entice a rapist’

I call bullshit:

She discloses in a new memoir how she was abducted and sexually assaulted by a motorcycle gang in Ohio in the early 1970s – but concludes it was “all my doing” because of the way she was dressed and the fact that she was under the influence of drugs.

Women should dress modestly or expect to ‘entice a rapist’ – claims singer Chrissie Hynde – Telegraph

This seems awfully convenient. Just a little spice to sell some books?

I’ve followed The Pretenders since the late 70″s and I’ve never heard this story before.

The Coming Middle-Class Anarchy

This is an important follow on to the Codevilla piece below. Again, many of you have read this. For some it is just another spot on the internet where you can find it. Please pass it along.

Gonzalo Lira: The Coming Middle-Class Anarchy. A sample:

However, three months later, out of the blue, they got a letter from their bank, Wells Fargo: It said that, after further review, Brian and Ilsa had in fact not qualified for HAMP. Therefore, their mortgage would go back to the old rate. Not only that, they now owed the difference for the three months when they had paid the lowered mortgage—and to add insult to injury, they were assessed a “penalty for non-payment”.

Really go read the whole thing. And all of the addenda.

I’ve saved the posts here in a small effort to make certain this story stays alive.

The Ruling Class 

They vote Democrat more consistently than those who live on any of America’s Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Streets.

Angelo M. Codevilla

This is an important essay. I’ve posted a .pdf here. It is my small part to make sure this stays available. Many of you have read this. Please pass the link along to your friends.

Women less likely than men to travel back in time and kill Hitler

It must be true, it’s on the internet.

I’ve seen this in a few places…

And thought I would share.

An Amusing Video…


Go watch it, it’s only a few seconds long.

I’m no longer logging into Facebook, so I can’t/won’t embed it here.

It reminds me of Bob Tur threatening Ben Shapiro.


This is somewhat hard to believe…

And amusing…

While perusing through the web site of a recreational vehicle manufacturer, I found a page where you could tell the manufacturer about how you might use their product. The manufacturer would then tell you which of their models be suited your intended uses. There were several criteria, and within each criterion, was a choice similar to soft, medium or hard.

I made my choices.

Here is what the manufacturer recommends from their product line:

Shopping Results

I find that baffling. How in the world did the web site fail to recommend a choice?

Someone should be fired.

Drag queens banned from Pride event ‘because they may offend transgender people’…

Drag queens have been banned from performing at a Pride event in case they offend transgender people.

How do you keep score? Oh, and go take a look at the picture.

We were just talking about this at dinner…

Heather Mac Donald in City Journal:

Well, you might ask any high school senior, steeped in his class’s SAT rankings, if it’s true that “people of color” are given “extra benefits” in college admissions. He will laugh at your naïveté. A 2004 study of three top-tier universities, published in Social Science Quarterly, found that blacks were favored over whites by a factor of 5.5 and that being black got students an extra 230 SAT points on a 1,600-point scale. Such massive preferences for URMs are found at every selective college and graduate school. Every student knows this, and yet diversity protocol requires pretending that preferences don’t exist.

The Ace and the Deuce were going over the college selections for the Deuce’s graduating classmates. “Is he a Mexican?”, came up more than once.
