Thoughts On A Sunday

While the Mid-Atlantic states are recovering from Snowzilla, we're enjoying a sunny day. Thought the temps won't be above freezing today, the sunshine is helping to melt what little ice and snow remain on our driveway.

Even with the nice weather we're limiting our outdoors time as there are a ton of things we need to get done before the start of the workweek. That's the way it goes sometimes.


I like the sound of this proposed bill.

In Tennessee, a bill sponsored by state senator Delores Gresham puts the burden of protecting people in gun-free zones on the owners of the properties declared gun-free. This allows legal gun permit holders to sue the property owners if injury or death occurs in those gun-free zones because the permit holders were not allowed to carry their firearms as a means of protection.

This is something long overdue as too many of these property owners have banned guns while doing little to ensure the safety of the people on those properties.

All one has to do is look at some of the mass shootings that have taken place and you'll see most of them took place on properties that were gun-free zones. Some mass shooters indicated they chose those locations because they knew no one would have guns, giving them a free-fire zone to exploit.

If you're going to declare your commercial property a gun-free zone then you must also be obliged to provide adequate security to protect the now-unarmed patrons. If you don't, that shows depraved indifference and that should be a punishable action, either civil or criminal.


I think the prospect of Michael Bloomberg entering the race for president will do for Hillary or Bernie what Ross Perot did for Bob Dole.

Laissez les bons temps rouler!


The New England Patriots hopes of going to the SuperBowl were dashed when they lost to Denver, 20-18. Seeing just how good the Carolina Panthers are this season, I'm almost glad they didn't make it. Frankly, I doubt Denver is good enough to beat them.


Who didn't see this coming?

Muslim group says Germany must ban alcohol otherwise sex attacks will continue.

The problem with this argument is that alcohol has been in Germany for a long, long time, and there was never a mass of rapes and sex assaults as there was in Cologne and other German cities on New Year’s Eve. The cause of the rapes and sex assaults was the Islamic attitude toward Infidel women — that they can be taken and used sexually (cf. Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30). But no one, least of all the German authorities, wants to face that fact.
That won't last long. I find it interesting that Muslims like this are outright admitting that their fellow Muslims are so weak willed that they are incapable of resisting temptation. Or could it be that their cultural prohibitions are so antiquated that savagery is tolerated all in the name of Allah. They they think Germany will bow to their demands shows just how foolish they are. It is more likely Germany will ban them and deport them wholesale...with prejudice.


Skip Murphy points us to this little truth:

Marxism is intellectualism for stupid people. - Moe Lane



This is just stupid.

But we know the warmists will find some way to justify it even though everyone knows it will be a lie.


This is yet another example of why the Department of Education should be abolished and the staffers at its Office of Civil Rights should be prosecuted for civil rights violations:

Student cleared of rape charge by his college and by a jury in court still not welcome at his college.

So even though he's been found not guilty after a trial and cleared by a college tribunal, he's still guilty as far as some of his fellow students are concerned.


I've known this for a long time, but no one listened to me because I am a white conservative male Christian.

Christians, Conservatives, Men, and White People are not responsible for your problems.

I guess it's easier for some people to blame others for their own failings and poor decisions.


I have to admit I am becoming more entranced with Ted Cruz as we fast approach the New Hampshire Primary. I wouldn't mind seeing a Cruz/Fiorina or a Cruz/Christie ticket.

I don't care for Trump even though he is bringing up truths that the GOP establishment and the Democrats have been trying to ignore for some time. I think that explains why he's been attracting a lot of people, They're tired of being ignored by both parties.


And that's the news from Lake Winnipesaukee, where the political rhetoric has been dialed up to '11', the number of campaign flyers in our mailboxes has tripled, and where we can't wait for the first round of the political silly season to be over.
