You Can Never Be Too Rich, Too Thin, or Have Too Much Ammunition



You may have noticed the badge on the sidebar for Ammo.com, because, you can never be too rich, too thin or have too much ammunition! They have started a refer a friend program:

"Get a $10 credit when a friend buys $200+ worth of ammo. Best of all, they'll save $15 on their first purchase as well!"

If you need to stock up on ammunition (and you probably should! ) take a look over there. No obligation. Check out their prices. If their deals are the best around, take advantage of them. And with all the money you save, as that guy in the commercial says, "You should probably buy me dinner!"

Click on the badge on the sidebar or go here.

Good hunting. And let's be careful out there!

Corporal Duane E. Dewey


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as a gunner in a machinegun platoon of Company E, in action against enemy aggressor forces. 
When an enemy grenade landed close to his position while he and his assistant gunner were receiving medical attention for their wounds during a fierce night attack by numerically superior hostile forces, Cpl. Dewey, although suffering intense pain, immediately pulled the corpsman to the ground and, shouting a warning to the other marines around him. bravely smothered the deadly missile with his body, personally absorbing the full force of the explosion to save his comrades from possible injury or death. 
His indomitable courage, outstanding initiative, and valiant efforts in behalf of others in the face of almost certain death reflect the highest credit upon Cpl. Dewey and enhance the finest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service.


Cpl. Dewey: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

Hat tip Home of Heroes

There are seventy six living MoH recipients today. Their names and their stories should not be forgotten. My mission is to honor one of those heroes here each week, and salute them for their courage and sacrifice. In the words of John Fitzgerald Kennedy:

“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces, but also by the men it honors; the men it remembers.”

Quote du jour

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretense, raised in the United States. A military force, at the command of Congress, can execute no laws, but such as the people perceive to be just and constitutional; for they will possess the power, and jealousy will instantly inspire the inclination, to resist the execution of a law which appears to them unjust and oppressive.”
– Noah Webster

Slappy Kaepernick

Surprise!

I have a wireless rollerball mouse. Not bragging or complaining. Well, maybe complaining a little bit! Lately my mouse seems to have this propensity to double click when I tell it to single click. That and random movements brushing the touch pad on my laptop sometime sends me someplace I really didn't plan to go. For example this:


Up until today, Google provided rotating landscape pictures as my wallpaper. Never paid it that much attention. Just now, I closed my browser window, to find I had somehow, without any conscious thought, set a random Vintage Babe pic as my screen saver! Surprise! (It could have been worse, I suppose! It could have been Hillary! )

Yes, it is a slow news day! Why do you ask??

The Point That Usually Comes First to My Mind

Mystery Object - Star Trek Style


All right, Trekkers, here's a question for you: What's that thing on the wall? On a state-of-the-art starship, where virtually everything of importance is hidden behind an access panel, why is this thing bulging out into the corridor? There's no writing, no valves, no switches...what's this thing doing, painted bright red as if it was important.

Extra points for creativity!

Corporal Hershel Woodrow Williams


Citation:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as demolition sergeant serving with the 21st Marines, 3d Marine Division, in action against enemy Japanese forces on Iwo Jima, Volcano Islands, 23 February 1945. Quick to volunteer his services when our tanks were maneuvering vainly to open a lane for the infantry through the network of reinforced concrete pillboxes, buried mines, and black volcanic sands, Cpl. Williams daringly went forward alone to attempt the reduction of devastating machinegun fire from the unyielding positions.
Covered only by four riflemen, he fought desperately for four hours under terrific enemy small-arms fire and repeatedly returned to his own lines to prepare demolition charges and obtain serviced flamethrowers, struggling back, frequently to the rear of hostile emplacements, to wipe out one position after another. On one occasion, he daringly mounted a pillbox to insert the nozzle of his flamethrower through the air vent, killing the occupants and silencing the gun; on another he grimly charged enemy riflemen who attempted to stop him with bayonets and destroyed them with a burst of flame from his weapon.
His unyielding determination and extraordinary heroism in the face of ruthless enemy resistance were directly instrumental in neutralizing one of the most fanatically defended Japanese strong points encountered by his regiment and aided vitally in enabling his company to reach its objective. Cpl. Williams' aggressive fighting spirit and valiant devotion to duty throughout this fiercely contested action sustain and enhance the highest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service.


Cpl. Williams: We humbly salute you and thank you for your service.

A Common Sense Solution to Illegal Guns


Liberals have been clamoring for some time to have "common sense" gun laws enacted. That sounds reasonable. Then, they proceed to regale us with the need for laws that are already on the books, or impractical ideas that would never work. Never fear! I have a solution.

It's not a new law per se, but something that every liberal who is serious about solving the problem can do. It might cost a few bucks up front, but, as you're always telling us, "If it saves just one life it'll be worth it", so I expect close to 100% participation. (Stop laughing!)

Now to be honest, I am basing this solution on what hundreds of liberals have told us about the ease of buying a gun. We've been told that it's literally easier to buy a gun than to buy a book. Teen Vogue recently regurgitated liberal talking points reminded us that it's:

* Easier to buy a gun than get a driver's license
(which is a neat trick, since you need to obtain a driver's license to buy a gun, so technically you have to do MORE to buy a gun!)

* Easier to buy a gun than to adopt a pet

* Easier to buy a gun than to get married

* Easier to buy a gun than to get an abortion, and

* Easier to buy a gun than to get an internship or a full time job.

At first, I thought I would challenge liberals to attempt to purchase a legal handgun, to see just how much more difficult it is than they imagine. But then, I thought, what is the liberal going to do with that gun? They don't want it, don't know how to use it or properly store it. In their hands, it could become a hazard. But what if every liberal committed to the elimination of gun violence were to purchase a gun illegally?

Hear me out, this is good! Liberals tell us it is easier to buy an illegal gun than to buy a book, so, why don't they just prove to all us hard-headed, gun-toting conservatives just how easy it is? Here's what you do...go down to wherever you think it is that illegal guns are sold...street corners, back alleys, gun shows...wherever! Take cash. Most criminals probably aren't set up to take MasterCard or Visa. Purchase the gun for cash. You can haggle a little, but remember..."if it saves just one life it''ll be worth it". So don't be cheap.

Next, you take the gun directly to the nearest police station. They can dispose of it for you and also check to see if it's been used in any crimes. And then, this is the good part, you tell the police exactly where you bought the gun and give a description of the person who sold it to you. If possible, try to drop the gun into a bag and maybe it will have some usable fingerprints for the police. Take video of the exchange if you can do it surreptitiously. It may not hold up in court for putting this guy away, but should go a long way in mitigating any charges towards you for purchasing an illegal firearm.

It's a veritable threefer! You have irrefutable proof of just how easy it is to buy a gun, shutting the mouths of all those pro-gun types. You have taken an illegal firearm off the street AND taken an illegal gun dealer off the street as well!  What more could you ask for? If it's that easy to buy a gun, it's just common sense, right? If liberals from coast to coast take millions of illegal guns off the street and likewise thousands of illegal gun dealers, everybody wins! Right?

So, what'll it be liberals? Up to the challenge? Beuller? Bueller??
