Never open your door to the police without a warrant.  If you do, capture it on video.  Better, livestream it.  Demand a warrant.  Do not give them a reason to enter your home.  Keep your cool.  Force them to obey the law.

This is how it’s done:

AC/DC: Is there anything their music cannot do?

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

A great song is a great song, no matter the genre it’s played in.  Some songs will work, some won’t, but by God, AC/DC ALWAYS works!  Oh, and the band is Finnish.  Is there anything the Scandis can’t do?  (Besides lutefisk, I mean.) In a just world, Steve ‘N’ Seagulls (oh hell yeah with the pun) would be world-famous, and Justin Bieber would be doing karaoke with his high-school chums.

Baba O’Riley on acoustic piano – Totally Awesome.

Monday, April 15th, 2013

– Wiccapundit

I stumbled on this today: a completely acoustic version of The Who’s epic Baba O’Riley on piano.   This kid plays all the parts, including the computer-sequenced arpeggiated opening riff (?!), the chords, the guitar licks, and the closing viola solo.  Oh, and he sings it too.  Then he just gets up and motherfuckin’ walks off camera.   Too cool.

Gallery of the Intrepid: Colonial America Edition

Sunday, January 6th, 2013

This story from Bob Owens’ blog is a must-read.  When called to fight for their country during the Revolution, even those as young as 13 and as old as 78 answered.  The story of Samuel Whittemore is one that would not be believable if written by a Hollywood screenwriter.  It is true, however.  Just a sample:

The oldest man to fight that fateful day was an alarm-lister named Samuel Whittemore, a 78-year-old veteran of three American wars in the King’s service.

While Lord Percy’s relief column attempted to link up with Regular forces under attack by colonial militias, Whittemore set up behind a low stone wall near his home and attacked the 47th Regiment of Foot by himself.

Whitemore’s aimed fire did enough damage to the column that an assault was ordered upon his position.

Whittemore is documented to have killed one man from this assaulting force with his musket, then killed one and severely wounded another with horse pistols he’d removed from the body of French officer he’d dispatched decades before. Whittemore was in the act of drawing his ornate French Calvary sabre—again, taken from another French officer who “died suddenly” according to Whittemore, more than 20 years before—when half his face was shot away at point-blank range. Whittemore’s horrified relatives watched from a distance as the nearly 80-year old patriarch of their clan was bayoneted thirteen times by the Redcoats, and left for dead in a pool of his own blood.

When his kin came forward to collect his body, they found that despite having half his left cheek shot away, and pierced by 13 bayonet wounds, Samuel Whittemore was attempting to load his musket to fire again on the rapidly disappearing column of Regulars.

Not quite dead, yet.  “‘Tis but a scratch… ” said the Black Knight.

Yeah, he lived.  Another 18 years.  Tough son-of-a-bitch.  Do they still make Americans like that anymore?  We can only pray there are at least a few left with that kind of brass in them.

Why a high-capacity magazine ban is pointless.

Thursday, January 3rd, 2013

– Wiccapundit

Leftist gun-grabbers and mindless politicians like Diane Feinstein like to claim that banning high-capacity magazines will prevent atrocities like the Newtown shooting, because it decreases the shooter’s ability to fire many rounds in a short period of time.

In point of fact, that’s not true.  Here is a video of Jerry Miculek, setting a world record by firing twelve shots on target in under 3 seconds, from a 6-shot revolver with a manual reload!    That’s a cyclic rate of 240 rounds per minute, which is nearly half as fast as the cyclic rate of the Maxim gun (the world’s first self-powered machine gun) at 500 rounds per minute.  He can do this firing at 6 human-size silhouette targets, hitting all 6 with two bullets each.

Magazines? He don’t need no steenkin’ magazines!

Because 3 is better than 2

Sometimes you just need one more round to get the job done.  That’s why someone invented the three-barrelled shotgun:

How about pairing it with a double-barrelled .45?

Gallery of the Intrepid – He can rebuild himself; he has the technology Edition.

Government health care?  I don’t need no stinkin’ government health care.  So what if I got my arms blown off?  I’ll just build myself my own bionic arms.

Yep, that’s what Sun Jifa of northern China did, after the accident that took both of his arms off (a blast-fishing accident with a homemade bomb that prematurely exploded – WTF!!).  He couldn’t afford the prosthetic limbs that the hospital offered, so he built his own.  How exactly does one do that?  Don’t you need arms to build arms?  Whatev.  No prob.  Oh, and he made them from scrap metal for practically nothing.

You keep using that word “disabled.”  I do not think it means what you think it means.

Oh, and President Obama?  He DID build that.  And, he’s building them for others, as well.

Any chance we could get him to emigrate here and serve as Secretary of Health and Human Services?
