The Asshole Path and The Principle of Compounding Stupidity

The previous weeks have seen not one, but two cases of civilian-on-civilian shootings where initially insignificant slights were escalated to the point where one party dead ended up dead with the other in jail. These situations have been exacerbated by the fact that each shooting involved a black v. white confrontation and even further exacerbated […]


Another day in the life of our first ‘Social Justice’ papacy

Pope Francis and his unfortunate embrace of secularist multiculturalism tropes are nothing new – his recent visit to the US was a veritable jamboree of such sentimentally muddled rhetoric – so it should come as no surprise that, after the results of the American presidential race, he would weigh in yet again. And so he […]


Blue Army Chapel and St Joseph Bookstore

I was the beneficiary of a rather fortuitous sequence of events recently. Apparently, in a drive to help municipalities raise funds, the state of Michigan amended a variety of traffic laws, among them accessing turn-arounds on divided highways; where one could previously drive out of a parking lot into the turn-around directly facing the lot exit, now such […]


Fiocchi 7/8 Oz Reduced Recoil 12 Gauge Slugs

As I noted in my Remington 870 Police Magnum post, the one issue I had with with gun was the heavy trigger pull; trigger pull on the 870P is set in the 7 to 8 lb range (the cheaper Express closer to 5 lbs), excessive by most reasonable measures.  Indeed, the first time I fired slugs […]


CETME Sight Adjustment

One of the responsibilities, as well as one of the pleasures, of gun ownership is the maintenance of one’s firearms.  A critical part of this is making certain that the weapon is capable of placing its rounds where the shooter aims it; a firearm that doesn’t hit what it’s aimed at is dangerous, to say […]


Diversity Strengthens the US Navy

It’s an article of faith in among our elites that diversity intrinsically improves all it touches, an attitude summarized quite well by no less of a personage than Mark Zuckerberg.  “We believe the world is better when people from different backgrounds and with different ideas all have the power to share their thoughts and experiences,” Facebook’s […]


Conservative Media Inc: A Primer

Despite the howls of indignation from wide swaths of America regarding his candidacy, there have been numerous reasons to be thankful for Donald Trump’s efforts.  For instance, one can’t help but admire the manner in which he has placed the victims of illegal immigrant and gang crime in such a position of prominence; anti-crime populism […]


Another One Bites The Dust: Trayvon/Trevon Johnson Shot Dead in Florida

[Please note: In the articles used to compile this post, the spelling of the subject thug’s name varied between ‘Trevon’ and the more traditional ‘Trayvon’.  In the interest of emphasizing the interchangeability of said juvenile thugs, this variation has been maintained.] Last month there was another case of a self-defense related shooting in Florida, resulting in […]
