Another fine tale of mischief and mayhem from the Capital of North Carolina courtesy of correspondent RALEIGH CONSTITUENT:

Players Retreat: When Liberals Collide!

Dear John Jacob;


You may have heard back in July a Purse Fight Royale’ broke out here in Raleigh at Player’s Retreat- a vintage local eatery some 60 years old- in regard to the topic of Concealed Carry.


The fuss began when newbie red diaper Liberal City Democrats faced off with the only implacable enemy they really have here in North Carolina- local yellow dog Country Democrats. Needless to say when these two paws of the same weasel engage in a philosophical shadow boxing match hijinks ensue.


At least one Dummiecrat always limps away with a black eye and bloody nose; similar to the throwdown that just unfolded in the Colorado Recall elections.

For six decades Players Retreat has been the Southern Redneck answer to the Irish Pub; the British Tavern; the German Beer Hall; or even the Super Max Prison Cafeteria with a touch of Biker Bar or Longshoreman Waterfront Dive thrown in for some additional zest.


This fine establishment was founded in 1951 when Raleigh was a true sleepy little College Town with few alternatives for after work entertainment, so the PR, as it is known, became the venue of choice for everyone including the Governor; the White Shoe attorney crowd; blue collar workers and even incoming freshman from the campus of what is now known as North Carolina State University. A true egalitarian mix of all social classes.


Nowadays under the current management of one Gus Gusler the interior ambiance has remained remarkably unchanged from earlier times – right down to the boxy wooden florescent light fixtures with trademark red bulbs and open unshielded egg crate decorative grates that trap and hold every last greasy dust bunny loose enough to float up into the half inch squares.


Why a gooey hairball never drifts back down from these ancient fixtures into the admittedly excellent food and drink served by Mr. Gusler is just part of the mysterious charm of the place.


Mr.Gusler’s big innovation has been to gentrify the menu with a fine contemporary selection of local craft beers, an exceptional assortment of upscale sipping liquors and he will even serve his clientele “Watermelon Cucumber Gazpacho with Pickled Shrimp” at their request – a far cry from the hearty robust Bernie Burger with a side of fries and a cold bottle of Miller served as yesteryear’s daily special .


So that was the state of affairs in July when the situation got a little dicey because plucky 2nd Amendment Activists at Grass Roots North Carolina managed to push through a “restaurant carry” bill in the General Assembly to legalize possession of pistols in venues which serve alcohol provided the Pistol Permit Holder does not drink.


For some reason this legislation did not sit well with Mr. Gusler, and he immediately took to Facebook to issue a swift and draconian response. He threatened to install a metal detector at the entrance to his establishment!


And THAT is when the fur began to fly!


Come to find out some of his trusted Communist fellow travelers admitted IN WRITING to possession of concealed weapons in his establishment right under his nose for the past decade regardless of current law or statute!

PRFinalC
With their written confession in his possession Mr. Gusler did not hesitate to turn on his loyal clientele and publicly brand them as criminals!

PlayersRetreatPacking4A
The allegation of criminal behavior did not sit very well with said clientele and one clienteleee immediately and publicly reminded Mr. Gusler his establishment MIGHT be guilty of serving alcohol to underage drinkers and “overserving” patrons who may have already passed their limit of alcohol consumption.

PRFinalA

The shouting match stopped just short of summoning a code compliance visit from the Health Department to check overall sanitation and hygiene on the premises.


After all, good liberals must stick together and paper over their differences to let the good times roll!


Now outside observers of an inquiring turn of mind might notice a number of curious perplexities in this little Snafu.


Are there really Democrat Concealed Carry Pistol Permittees in North Carolina dumb enough to confess IN WRITING to the crime of weapon possession while intoxicated?


And if Democrats carry pistols while intoxicated does that not bolster the argument that criminal behavior cannot be legislated?


And if this conduct has occurred for over a decade without incident, does that fact not bolster the argument that weapons are not automatically evil and the root source of all bad things in the world? Could the truth be a malignant mentality is more likely to produce a malignant outcome than any physical object?


These and many other perplexities remain currently unresolved. And Players Retreat seems to have resumed normal operations for now.


But stay tuned. Who knows what new excitement tomorrow will bring?

Bemusedly yours,
Raleigh Constituent

Dumb Mayors and Gun Confiscation

Bloomberg's Dangerous Gun Advertisement

Bloomberg’s Dangerous Gun Advertisement

BOOM! Mayor Bloomberg’s Gun Control Advertising Campaign bombs with the most irresponsible example of firearm handling possible.

To err is human, to really foul things up acquire a computer and if you seek to ruin things beyond all repair call a Politician. Especially an outfit like Mayors For Gun Confiscation, because they make their own case for incompetent leadership even as they demand more compliance with their ridiculous edicts.

Today’s episode involves the release of two ostensibly passionate pleas for more stringent regulation delivered by an actor who has probably never handled or fired a firearm in his life. The errors are so off-the-wall egregious as to be almost beyond the ability of rational men to catalog.

Newsbusters website makes a noble attempt:

Excerpt:

Mr. Bloomberg’s organization, Mayors Against Illegal Guns, produced two ads featuring a man holding a shotgun, wearing plaid flannel with a camouflage cap and sitting on the tailgate of a pickup truck. While a child swings on a tire in the background, the man says, “I support comprehensive background checks so criminals and the dangerously mentally ill can’t buy guns.”

The ad does not specify if the man is an actor, but he violates all three gun safety rules taught by the National Rifle Association (NRA).

Free lance wildcat posters have already appeared on discussion forums:

And, of course, here at JohnJacobH the topic of actors with good trigger discipline and muzzle awareness has been covered recently with the example of young child actor Bill Mumy who handled firearms expertly at the age of seven back in 1961:

Or senior actor Tom Selleck, who has been unable to set a good example of proper weapon manipulation up to the age of forty something.

My Pirate Name

My pirate name is:
Iron Jack Vane

A pirate’s life isn’t easy; it takes a tough person. That’s okay with you, though, since you a tough person. You tend to blend into the background occasionally, but that’s okay, because it’s much easier to sneak up on people and disembowel them that way. Arr!

Mr.Spock Says Nuke The Arctic Icecaps!

Yee Haw!!!! …….. It’s on Youtube! ………. It’s on Youtube!

For YEARS I reminisced to skeptical associates about “IN SEARCH OF” –The LOST Episode!!

No less than Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock to you Trekkies) hosted a documentary style TeeVee show which featured a wide variety of strange topics back in the late 1970s/early 1980s.

With subjects that ranged from UFO’s to secret Ancient Egyptian technology the shows were a wacky mixture of fringe theory gossip and slick propaganda.

Arguably the slickest of slick propaganda dealt with….. (are you safely seated??) …. The Coming Ice Age!

Yes! Long before Al Gore, Leonard Nimoy was deeply enamored with climate change mythology, BUT from the Global Cooling Side of the Equation!

Frankly, Al Gore could take some lessons from a professional!

The Coming Ice Age begins on a hysterical note (complete with ominous bassoon in the opening tease) and escalates into pure panic in just twenty minutes (of broadcast time)!

After We, the Audience, have been lectured about perpetual snow in Mississippi, the collapse of food production in the San Joaquin Valley, the loss of grazing land in the mid-west; total crop loss in Kansas, Indiana and Idaho, and chiiiiildren freezing to death alone, hungry and in the dark….. the prospect of nuking the Arctic to melt ice caps seems down right reasonable!

And if that does not work, it might still be possible to spread black soot over large tracts of ice so the sun will melt it for us!

It is all very scientific, dontcha know!!

Really! A 20th Century Classic! Must-see TEEVEE!

Yum! Groundhog Culinary Recipes

THIS DAY IN GASTRONOME- the periodic post about cooking and cookie recipes guaranteed to boost traffic count since EVERYBODY loves cookie recipes!!

Groundhog Day! Time to fire up the grill! Break out the roasting pan! Oil up the turkey fryer!

After all, Thanksgiving is called “Turkey Day”, Christmas Tradition dictates a “Christmas Goose” for the main entree, so Groundhog day must be the day to eat young, tender, eight month old woodchucks!

Everyone share: what are your favorite Groundhog delicacies? How do you recycle leftovers?

From our friends at Wildlife Recipes:

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Woodchuck, also known as groundhog, should be handled in accordance with the general rules for game in the field. The blood should be drained, and the entrails removed and the body cavity wiped clean. When hung for 48 hours, they are ready to the skinned and cooked.

Woodchuck meat is dark, but mild flavored and tender. It does not require soaking; however, many people like to soak it overnight in salt water. If the woodchuck is caught just before he begins his winter sleep, there is an insulating fat layer under the skin. Remove excess fat. remove 7 to 9 “kernels” (scent glands) in the small of the back and under the forearms. Parboil the meat of older animals; cook by recipes calling for chicken or rabbit.

Prison Cell Concealed Carry

Thank Heaven it was only a .38 Special!

If it was a serious gun like Rick Perry’s Ruger .380, (CLICK HERE)someone might have gotten hurt!

Tantalizing Excerpt:

Jailers later discovered a .38 caliber, six-inch barrel revolver in the cell. It is believed that Ward hid the weapon in his rectum.

On Friday Ward will be taken to Onslow Memorial Hospital for possible injuries that may have occurred to Ward’s rectum.

Police say the gun was not loaded, but it was in operational condition.

Merry Christmas!

Christmas is a time for reflection and renewal in the company of family and friends. This year I thought my faithful readers (Thanks Mom!) and first time visitors might enjoy something old and something new, something sacred and something, well, a little more profane……in other words, a little something for everyone in this, the annual Christmas compilation post.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all!

Texas Tall Tale (With Dynamite!)

There was a time I would have taken this type of story with a grain of salt.

But then my buddies brother went up into the mountains to excavate a basement under his wife’s cabin retreat.

Yes, it did involve dynamite. Yes, hijinks ensued.

Seems when some people get around dynamite the crazy switch goes on in their brain.

So if this story is not exactly true, it should be, and it probably resembles something that actually happened.

A Texas Tall Tale as told by a Tall Texan.

Hitler Discovers Operation Gunwalker

Okay, I left Gunwalker in the hands of the competent, “serious”, “professional” bloggers for over ten months and made no public comment as child of a lesser blog, but *THIS* is funny!!
