I’m really tired of hearing gun-grabbers preach about the idyllic, peaceful, civilized and Gun Free, Great Britain.
Please don’t tell me to just stop listening, because they seem to be everywhere and they won’t shut up!

Ego, conceit and confidence all came up in a recent conversation with a comrade in arms and it ended with the sort of question only a good friend can gracefully ask. Before he asked, however, he requested that I think long and hard, and be completely honest. Both of these are equally uncomfortable and the latter downright unnatural, but I said I’d try. (Which … Continue reading

Private Enterprise built the Transcontinental Railroad without the benefit of a “Federal Railroad Administration.” When was the last time you saw a Federal work crew performing any work on a US or Interstate highway? The answer is most likely never. Highway work, even on Federal highways (with the exception of some military bases) is performed by State agencies and private contractors hired and paid … Continue reading
Why Shouldn’t High Level Public Servants Prove They are Drug Free? As a condition of employment, almost everyone, from the guys who pick up the trash and deliver the mail, to the folks who read meters and repair the highways must agree to random drug and Alcohol testing.

How should we deal with an organized effort to inflict these Million economic cuts, when all it takes to inflict one is a circuit board and battery taped to an empty Propane can, or even a simple paper bag left in an ‘inappropriate’ place?

My question is just how many violent criminals are arrested and prosecuted for the crime of attempting to purchase a firearm while prohibited? ?

NOTE:The original Web Safe color concept was intended for those with 16 bit displays, limited to only 256 colors.
While there are still a few users out there in that category they represent fewer than 2% of the total clients. (Mostly non-U.S. schools from which most companies do not or should not solicit nor encourage traffic.) Today, almost any color (matters of taste aside) will display properly.
For 100% certainty, however, Websafe colors always work.
