With a bang and a whimper

We can put a man on the moon, but just you try getting four of 'em out of a bird sanctuary.

We can put a man on the moon, but just you try getting four of ’em out of a bird sanctuary.

Sounds like the Redneck Revolution is on its last legs … well, outside Burns, Oregon, anyway.

The fuzz capped LaVoy Finicum, who appears to have charged them, first in a vehicle, and then on foot. Didn’t even get to draw down on them with his bad nine, yo. And the occupying army is down to four. Like the Black Knight, they’ll be happy to call it a draw. Um, no. Not until you do the Silly Walk.

I think these guys watched too many John Wayne movies and didn’t read nearly enough books. Their only point was to be found above the eyebrows and under the Stetson. Definitely time to fire the PR guy.

Whoops. Too late.

    Now, maybe, Cliven would be kind enough to visit his boys and stay with them!

    On anothe note, NPR reports that Paul Kantner just checked out.

    He says “I’m going to kill you if I don’t get my way.” Then you go to draw your heater, not once but 3 times, and then wonder “why they did they shoot me.” And then the rest of them call for reinforcements, tell the ones who will come kill anyone in your way to get here, and we are going to fight back. Now they want to walk out and all is forgiven. All of them are dumber than a $400 dollar DoD toilet seat.

    With that out of the way, I went on my first ride of 2016 Damn it felt good!

    O a related note, the AK-47 will now be manufactured in Florida. As if we need more of these damn things falling into the wrong hands.

      Why anyone would want one, or have any pride of ownership, is beyond me. It is a stamped steel and ugly piece of shit. Good for only one thing.

      • khal spencer Says:

        I agree. Looks like a POS with one use.

        Had to say that at least the Ruger Mini ranch rifles have some class. Even a good old M-1 has some visual appeal. None have the class of the Pre-’64 Model 70 that I inherited from my uncle. Now that’s a rifle.

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        A fine rifle indeed. I am thinking 30-06?

        Speaking as one who met numerous individuals who carried Aks, they didn’t even know what a cleaning kit was.

        Aks are awesome, our FN SLRs would constantly block unless you religiously cleaned them.

        Aks just carried on.

        300 H&H Magnum. A real pain to find ammo, but I rarely shoot it.

      • khal spencer Says:

        Hurben said it. You would want one to fight a battle. I think we have enough violence without encouraging more. Hell, I don’t even shoot animals any more. Wounded a deer badly in 1985 when a round deflected off of a small branch and hit it outside the clean kill zone. I had to hike down a ravine to finish it off as it thrashed about. Made a vegetarian out of me.

        Last night someone hit a deer and I came upon the animal in the street as I rode my bike home from work. It too was thrashing about wildly with that same look in its eyes. A couple cops finally came along and I think one may have slit its throat to finish it as the other one held it down. Gave me kind of a flashback.

        Violence sucks.

      • Hurben Says:

        Got that right

      • Pat O'Brien Says:

        “Violence, no matter how well intentioned, always rebounds on oneself.” Tao te Ching Translated by Stephen Mitchell

  5. Hurben Says:

    Having said that, I do not want to touch a firearm for the rest of my life.

    • khal spencer Says:

      Mind you I have nothing against collectors, nor do I deny anyone’s right to defend themselves. Its just that using guns as a tool to solve our social ills is a little like using an AK to kill mosquitoes on the kitchen wall. Pretty soon you don’t even have a wall.
