Remember lay away programs?

I know I do, they were a big deal, or at least they seemed to be when I was a kid. But, with credit, and instant gratification, it seemed that lay away was a thing of the past. But, today, I stopped by a Gander Mountain, planning on buying some ammo, some targets, and of course look over their gun selection. I will say, Gander Mountain is more expensive than some stores, but, they always seem to have some good deals. One such deal was on a gun I wrote about two, three weeks ago, a Ruger SR .40 C. I liked the price, but, the gun was in a dual tone, so I asked the salesman to check if they had it in all black. They did not, but, they did have an SR 9 c in black, just one. I figured I would just wait until later, but then I remembered someone saying that Gander Mountain has lay away for firearms. So, after paying 20% down, actually I paid a bit more, I will soon be the proud owner of a fine pistol, as long as I pay the balance within 60 days, trust me it will take much less than that. And, yes, I would suggest anyone looking to buy a gun, but who has trouble saving money to pay one lump sum, might look into firearm lay away programs. I would also suggest other stores bring back lay away programs. A bit of delayed gratification is a good thing.

WTF is a Throuple?

Not just any “throuple” mind you, but a Lesbian throuple

Three Massachusetts lesbians got hitched and are now expecting their first child.

The nuptials of Doll, Kitten and Brynn Young were held this past August, with all three brides wearing white and traditional wedding veils.

Brynn and Kitten were married 2 ½ years ago in the Bay State, before adding Doll to their household mix.

“I cried watching Doll and Kitten walk down the aisle towards me with their dads,” Brynn, a computer programmer, told The Sun newspaper of London.

“After we said our vows, Doll and Kitten kissed me first then each other.”

The state of Massachusetts doesn’t  recognize three-way marriage – but these  women insist their unconventional union is very real to them.

“In our eyes we are married,” said Brynn, 34.  “We had specialist lawyers draw up paperwork so our assets are equally divided.”

Good Freaking Grief! How long until three, or more people marrying each other is a “right”, and anyone opposed to it is a “hater”?

More Left-Wing anti-gun bias from the media

Via Bearing Arms

WFSB reporter Kate Rayner was quick to dramatically label a defensive gun use in Hartford, Connecticut as an example of “some serious road rage” in her heavily biased video report.

Even the slightly more measured print report was constructed in such a way as to clearly show disdain for the actions of a man who saved his life with a handgun:

A homeowner who shot a driver this morning will not face charges.

Police say the shooting happened around 2 a.m. on Newberry Street in Hartford. The homeowner was trying to pull into his driveway, when two other drivers blocking the way, refused to move their vehicles.

Following a verbal altercation, officials say one of the drivers pointed a gun at the homeowner. The homeowner, reached for his own gun and fired first.

Police say the homeowner is a licensed gun owner, and he will not face charges.

The driver who was shot was taken to the hospital for treatment. According to police, both he and the other driver were arrested.

Law enforcement agrees that the homeowner who shot in self-defense was entirely in the right, and that the two jerks blocking the road were entirely in the wrong.

That seems to matter little to WFSB, who seem entirely apoplectic that a citizen dared defend his life with a firearm.

Road rage? Road rage? Really lady? I think the intellectually honest words you should use are self-defense

Far be it from me to tell NBC how to spend their money, but……….

….if they want to throw money around to find out why no one watches Meet the Press anymore, I am very affordable, certainly more affordable than any “consultant”.

The Washington Post reports that NBC hired a “psychological consultant” to interview David Gregory as part of a desperate effort to find out why ratings for Meet the Press have fallen to their lowest point ever — as in,since 1947.

As The Other McCain points out, the first problem is David Gregory himself. He is smug, and boring. The second problem is that shows like Meet the Press are dinosaurs, their time has passed. They are boring, stale, pretentious, and oh yeah, BORING! You want ratings? Hire someone interesting, and funny to host. No, not like Stephen Colbert, who is neither funny or interesting, I mean someone who actually makes people laugh but who can also make political points. Greg Gutfeld or Andrew Klavan come to mind.  Next have some guests that are not BORING and who do not come across as obnoxious and snobbish. In short make the show fun to watch. David Gregory? NOT FUN!

Finally, you need to remember that sex sells. Along with the funny, engaging host, try getting a co-host who is, how shall I put this, HOT! No, I do not mean a bimbo, I mean an intelligent woman whose smile and beautiful face just happens to make me stay tuned. There are MANY choices there. And it does not even matter what her politics are. It matters that she is HOT. If you ask me, right now your top choices there would Tamron Hall, Robin Meade, or Brooke Baldwin. I do not know their political leanings, but they are, smart, engaging, and oh yes, HOT!

My point is, make the show interesting rather than coma-inducing. NBC you have to be honest, who would you rather listen to, Gregory, who has the sense of humor of a clam, or Klavan or Gutfeld who are both very funny. See EASY choice there. Now, ask yourself who Americans want to look at, Gregory, who looks like a complete tool, sorry, he does, or one of these three? Yeah, I thought so

And the War on Women targets Sharyl Attkisson

Here come the Hounds of Leftist Tolerance

I’m sorry but Attkisson has some serious temperament issues.

Let’s be frank: Media Matters is quite openly an activist media watchdog operation. Its brief is to provide a counter-balance to hackish and/or biased rightwing media and to make sure Republicans get plenty of scrutiny.

Yes, let us be frank here. Attkisson is a tremendous reporter and it seems CBS did not appreciate her trying to do her job. And, of course, Mr. Marshall is welcome to have his opinion, but dismissing Attkisson as a crank is pathetic. Of course, we knew these types of attacks were coming, and we know they will increase in severity. That is what the Left tries to do to anyone who dares oppose them.

Democrat who voted against ObamaCare: The SH#@ is going to hit the fan

Again, the fact that he voted against the abomination lends credibility to his prediction. H/T Gateway Pundit

U.S. Representative Stephen Lynch (D-MA) told the Boston Herald there are parts of Obamacare that were delayed because they were unpalatable.

“It’s going to hit the fan… Many will have to pay a 40% tax… It’s the first time in this country’s history that we are going to tax health care.”

Two morons caught on tape

Watch this video, and see if you see the mistakes these two nimrods make H/T Clash Daily

First, they are following the moose. And yes, to the moose, that likely seemed threatening why would you chase any wild animal?  Especially one that can kill you. 

Second, she carries a gun for protection, great! But a .380? REALLY? That is OK for self-defense against a person, but a moose, or bear, or other large dangerous animals? Good grief! Go buy a .357 Magnum (or better yet a .44 Magnum) at the very least. COME ON!

Third when she fires a shot in the air, look where the gun is pointed? Pretty much straight ahead. Guess who is responsible for that bullet lady, yes YOU! What if someone else is on their snowmobile coming the other way?

Is it just me, or is everyone fed up with whiny Atheists

A serious question for radical Atheists who lose their flipping minds when they hear the word God, why does something you DO NOT believe in offend you so?

An Atheist Group at Clemson University is offended, because a football coach has been using certain words on the field, they feel are promoting “religious coercion.”

Larry O’Connor succinctly stated:

“Clemson Tigers football coach Dabo Swinney has been targeted by a group called The Freedom from Religion Foundation (FFRF) out of Wisconsin. The organization has accused coach Swinney’s program of being saturated with “Christian worship.”

One of Swinney’s offenses is the use of his favorite motivational saying: “Run your race to win, don’t just run the race.” Nevermind that it could have come from a Dale Carnegie book or a Steven Covey seminar: the phrase is from 1 Corinthians 9:24-25, so clearly Swinney is engaged in the establishment of a state religion here. Can’t you see it?”

Another complaint from the Freedom to Whine Incessantly or whatever the aggrieved groups calls itself is that Swinney, and other coaches have, brace yourself,

Swinney directly hiring the team chaplain (even Clemson policy says the players should choose), to coaches participating in testimonials and bible studies, to buses being organized to transport the entire team to “Church Day” at a local Baptist Church.

OH NO! Not that! Not coaches sharing their faith! My God, what is next if we allow this? I mean college football players and coaches exercising their liberties? Heaven forbid!

Here is an idea for the Freedom to be Royal Pains in Everyone’s Asses Foundation Try being a bit tolerant for a change! You are nothing but a group of pin-headed bigots and bullies who cannot stand the thought of anyone, anywhere acting as they see fit without clearing it with Collectivists like you first!! And, I hope that Clemson plays your favorite school next year and beats the 84 to 0!

Too awful to contemplate

I keep telling myself that THIS cannot be real

Via IJR:

British celebrity-wannabe was interviewed about her decision to abort her child in order to improve her chances to appear on a reality show.
From the Mirror:
Wannabe celebrity Josie Cunningham last night confessed the chance of appearing on TV’s Big Brother was worth more than her unborn child’s life.

Puffing on a cigarette and rubbing her baby bump, the controversial model and call girl – who will have her abortion at a clinic this week – said: “I’m finally on the verge of becoming famous and I’m not going to ruin it now.

“An abortion will further my career. This time next year I won’t have a baby. Instead, I’ll be famous, driving a bright pink Range Rover and buying a big house. Nothing will get in my way.”

Non-Violent thug gets early release, immediately tries to set 16-year-old girl he kidnapped on fire

California is CRAZY! Stacy McCain blames Democrats

This is what happens when you elect Democrats:

A man on probation as a “non-violent offender” under California’s prison realignment program has been charged with kidnapping, raping, and torturing a 16-year-old girl in South Los Angeles, and detectives suspect he may be connected to three other recent murders. Robert L. Ranson, 30, was arrested in late March after the girl escaped from a U-Haul van in an alley near Imperial Highway and New Hampshire Ave., according to police and booking records. The girl was covered in gasoline and said her attacker, later identified as Ranson, had tied her hands and taped her mouth, and was trying to light her on fire when she ran away, naked.

So, how could this happen? I mean California released this “non-violent” felon. Turns out CaliCRAZYfornia defines non-violent without regard for things like common sense

According to state prison officials Ranson was released from prison in Susanville in June, 2013 and returned to Los Angeles for supervision by probation officials. He was considered a non-violent offender because his most recent prison term was for possession of a firearm by a felon. Ranson had previously served time for two carjackings and an assault with a firearm, prison officials said.

Oh of course, THAT sounds “non-violent” Assault with a firearm! Crazyfornia should go after violent thugs with the same fervor they put into disarming law-abiding gun owners with useless gun control laws!

Senior asks Miss America to his prom, gets suspended from school.

It has come to this now? Punishing a kid for dreaming?

If Miss America visits your high school, and if it’s springtime, and if you don’t have a date to the senior prom, you’ve got to ask her to go with you. Right?

So what if you get suspended?

Such was the case for Patrick Farves, a senior at Central York High School, when the reigning Miss America, Nina Davuluri, came to the York, Pa. school on Thursday to give a speech about diversity and the value of science, engineering and math.

During the question-and-answer period that followed Davuluri’s speech, Farves asked Miss America to prom. And then he promptly got three-and-a-half days of in-school suspension as a result, reports the York Dispatch.

We are becoming a society of people who disdain fun, humor, and normal behavior.
