The P.O.P. Factor

"Just the facts, ma'am." More often than not, politically correct bullshit won't be found here. Pardon me while I exercise my 1st amendment right! I welcome all to my little world of bitches, moans, gripes and complaints, and sometimes, the downright freakin' odd. Take a seat and join me. I love a good story.

Hello Again

It occurred to me that it's been a very long time since I've blogged. Not that I haven't wanted to vent my frustrations or share my humor, but life as we all know it has taken a drastic turn. To say the world has become a horrifyingly violent and pathetic place is, in my opinion, an understatement.
My own personal life has taken a rather drastic turn as well, details of which I will spare you.

Suffice it to say, there's a multitude of ideas rolling around in my old noggin that I will proceed to put on to my computer screen for everyone's enjoyment. That is, if you're a fan. If you're not, tahellwityas!

If anyone has any thoughts or comments, any ideas, or even if you want to be a "guest" writer on to my blog, feel free to email me.

See you all soon!

The Race Card

Seriously? The President threw the race card?

“There’s no doubt that there’s some folks who just really dislike me because they don’t like the idea of a black president,” Obama said.

THE BLAZE  comment section has the most entertainment.

If you feel so inclined, you could be bored to death and read the whole article in THE NEW YORKER

Political Gun Grabbers

I have never hid the fact that I am a believer in the 2nd amendment. In my varied law enforcement career my ideals and thoughts on gun ownership evolved in to a direction I never thought I'd go. Having witnessed the after effects of victims of violent crimes, especially women and the elderly, I began to encourage people to exercise their 2nd amendment right. BUT, when I encouraged such ideas, I stressed the responsibility that goes with purchasing and owning any firearm. Then I started working in a gun store. Then I joined the NRA. Then I got really angry with many of our anti gun lawmakers (mostly liberal democrats) who think that gun grabbing and limiting how much ammo a gun will hold, will prevent violent crimes and school shootings.

Most of us logical thinking people know those ideas will resolve nothing. Legislation was recently presented to toughen background checks on gun purchases. The Universal Background Check legislation was doomed from the beginning. It would not have prevented anything. To legally purchase a gun anywhere in the U.S., a background check is required. The Brady Act  was signed in to legislation in 1993. Purchasing a firearm legally, from a licensed FFL dealer, requires a background or NICS (National Instant Background Checks System) check. And that's the key word, legally. While I do believe the NICS system does make a difference, it's not fool proof. If someone wants to get their hands on a firearm, they will do so one way or another.

Now we have politicians and their followers spouting forth their propaganda on limiting the size of a hand gun's magazine and the ban on "assault weapons." Most of them are ignorant of the very guns they are trying to outlaw.
Sales people, unlike politicians, generally know the product they're trying to sell. If I'm trying to sell someone on the fact that certain firearms should be banned, then I should know what I'm talking about. Let's face it, politicians can often be comparable to your stereotypical sleazy car salesmen. In fact, I think used car salesman might have higher moral standards. But I digress....

To cite some examples:

Sen. Kevin deLeon, (D) CA explains a "ghost gun." (Try not to spew your drink on your computer screen.)

Rep. Diana DeGette, (D) CO explains magazine size limitations.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg, (D) NYC explains auto vs. semi-auto

Rep. Carolyn McCarthy, (D) NY that barrel shroud thingy lady

Vice-President Joe Biden (D)  Has no frickin idea....

How the hell do these people get elected??

It's 5 o'clock somewhere

Altoona, PA

There's so many different and often times, dangerous, ways to get high these days. But to go to these lengths is just another chapter in the land of stupid. The words 'free alcohol' always brings to mind an open bar or a frat party.

But getting free alcohol from a hand sanitizer machine?  Seriously? Seriously.

The bar is open.

No pants? No problem

Charleston, SC

Freezing temperatures have descended all over the continental US, and that includes record breaking low temps in the southeast.
Which makes me wonder if these cold temps are causing so much stupid.
This particular little pervert must enjoy getting his rocks off driving around half naked. But, when the temps are in the teens, his little weeny has got to be looking for a place to stay warm.

Unfortunately, when you start scaring little old ladies with your weenycicle, you're probably gonna get caught.

Lionel Smalls probably has one.

Duct Tape fixes anything

Charleston, SC

If you're gonna rob a store, you most definitely want to ensure no one can identify you.
However, most people wouldn't resort to such extremes to disguise their face.
It's been kind of cold...why not use a ski mask? No. It''s apparently not a fitting disguise for what is most probably a desperate crack head.

The Duct Tape Robber

What's the odds of solving this robbery?

The gun or the badge?

Hampton County, SC

A sheriff's deputy decided to meet the neighbors....

Johnnie Lee Bryant, III

He used the gun and not the badge to introduce himself.
How stupid can you be?
