Denton County Sheriff:

How come

Billy Graham gets to lie in state at the Rotunda?

Seriously, he was a decent man, apparently a great pastor, but, in the end, just a man. Why do they give him the honor, and deny so many others?

Ultimately, what makes his corpse so special?

How many times can they stop?

I mean, I don’t shop at Dicks Sporting Goods anyway. They have very little that I want, and what items they do carry aren’t geared towards my demographic (old/white/male) but rather trendy clothing and stuff that appeals to Millenials.

Their firearms department had, as far as I knew, given up AR-style rifles and high round count magazines years ago, in some Virtue Signalling display after, either the Aurora Colorado shooing or perhaps another one much earlier…..I forget. (ETA: it was the Sandy Hook shooting)

But, either way, they gave up AR-15 style rifles once already. I’ve not been back to a Dicks since. I refuse to patronize places whose management uses tragedy to Virtue Signal.

Yet, oddly, they are giving them up again. How is that? I don’t remember there being a sunset provision of the sales of “Weapons of War” or whatever they called them then. Is profit a motivator that trumps Virtue Signalling? Or did they think that all their customers would forget? Is there a repeal date for this decision? Do they think it will help them get a boost selling Yeti cooler knockoffs and semi casual stylish workout wear and expensive boots and outdoor wear to their millenial customers for a while?

ETA: apparently they are serious this time: “This time it’s permanent“…One wonders why they don’t simply stop selling all firearms?

Expect their stock to fall….unexpectedly. They are all ready having issues. I expect them to fail soon.


Today, in 1993, is the day that the (Clinton) Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, and Firearms (BATF) ATTACKED the compound at Waco, Tx., home of the “Branch Davidians” for supposed “weapons violations” (Later amended to include a meth lab after the fact…that they didn’t have evidence of) …that excuse then became “Child Brides and Molestations” about 10 days into the siege (in order to come up with SOME justification….(Which, oddly, isn’t the purview of the ATF at all, BTW) (I think it was simply because their lifestyle was, to outsiders, strange). This is the anniversary of the start of the Siege at Waco, which led to the final immolation of the compound on April 19 by the FBI.

(Editors note: The discrepancies in the official report are many, and odd, and the actions of the ATF agents and subsequent FBI agents show that they considered these citizens to be subhuman, not worth basic human considerations. I am ashamed that I and my fellow citizens allowed this to happen and failed to exact punishment of  or exact retribution from, those agents responsible)

If ever there was a reason every man (and woman) should own a rifle and have the ability to use it, this is one.

Trust your government?

Not hardly. Not me.
I’ll remember this with the intensity that I remember 9-11,

Is your church approved by the Government?
Are you?
If all else fails, the Feds will burn you out to remove you as an embarrassment. Remember that too.

Never forget, this is a day where the “Government” chose to ignore the rights of the citizens, and, ultimately, killed those who would not comply with the orders of bureaucrats. 

13 hours

4 stops to pee,  2 of those for fuel, one to eat. Total time not driving or loading/un: 55 min.

20 minutes loading. 7 to unload.

The rest was driving. I only walked (according to the pedometer) 3800 steps today. Burned something like 9 calories…..

And now I have the symptoms of rhinovirus. Which sucks.


Expect little on Wed.

Willie be singin’

I will be back later. Gotta do what I gotta do. My average ground speed today (and yes, in the truck, not an airplane) should be about 74. By the time you read this I will have been enroute for about 2 hours.

Go read the folks on the sidebar, they know more and are more interesting anyway.


Seems that Twitter is deleting and otherwise censoring tweets that question David Hogg, the oddly articulate young Californian graduate student that has become the spokesman for the Parkland shooting victims.

“On Wednesday, Twitter Safety released a statement regarding the Parkland students. Anyone ‘harassing’ (disagreeing with) the students will be banned.

Twitter also said something very interesting. They are using ‘anti-abuse tools to weed out malicious automation around these individuals and the topics they are raising.’”

So, only the “right” people with the “right” message get to be heard. Dissent will be deleted.

I always thought that 1984 was a novel, not a prophecy.
