Time To Make Smokey Bear Into A Rug

Smokey The Bearskin Rug

Regular readers (all five of you!) know I have posted about the evil of trees and Smokey the Bear from my earliest days on this blog.

From Dr.Thomas M.Bonnicksen’s excellent exposition about early forests and the fires that maintained them to Australia’s frontal assault on the insanity of modern Tree Huggers and the tree worship policies they have created, I have tried to sound the alarm about the threat to America’s infrastructure from a 100 year policy of misguided fire suppression.


Now that Michael Bane can smell the smoke from his secret hidden bunker in Colorado this may be the time to revisit the issue.

William Shatner’s Aftermath: Bernhard Goetz

William Shatner interviews Bernhard Goetz-the New York Subway Hero on the Hulu.com webcast of Aftermath.

Boy howdy, this interview has something for everyone.

Consider… in 1984 a minimally trained,minimally equipped,minimally experienced city dweller arms himself. This in the days before fancy IWB holsters, IDPA, Thunder Ranch, Gunsite etc.

He covertly practices the skills he believes necessary to understand and when the time comes engages four targets, most at near contact distance,fires five shots, avoids two no hit bystanders and manages not to kill anyone! So much for one shot .38 Special stopping power!

His pristine grasp of the doctrine of provocative acts is at a level that should be more universal,even today,and after a quarter of a century he remains confident his actions were both successful and justified even though the NRA Fudd crowd and CCH Trainer Moralists may cringe to hear him speak.

William Shatner’s Aftermath: Ruby Ridge Interview

William Shatner Interviews Ruby Ridge Survivor Sara Weaver

Hulu.com now rebroadcasts episodes of William Shatner’s Aftermath from the Biography Channel.

Shatner conducts a sensitive, intense interview with Sara Weaver in a way that hearkens back to the best of Brian Lamb’s interviews on C-Span.

He quietly asks questions and allows Weavers’story to unfold complete and uninterrupted in her own words.

Highly recommended.

Update: The Amazon Pay-per-view is the only viable option to see this video. Still highly recommended.

How Many ObamacRATS Does It Take To Screw Up Dove Hunting?

Governor CupCake (left) & Her 3 Emergency Management Bears-Dinky, Binky, and Bob

(Answer: One if you are unlucky, but really, she had help)

The high winds of Hurricane Earl have already hit the Capital of North Carolina as Raleigh reels from the impact of A STATEWIDE Emergency Decree from the Governors Office that essentially bans firearms on the eve of opening day of Dove Season.

As a highly anticipated annual social event celebrated by everyone who is not a Bolshevik in Exalted Public Office from the lowest plumber to the highest of high society white shoe Attorneys-At-Law to mess with North Carolina Dove Hunters is akin to publicly avowing a distaste for Moon Pies.

It just is not done.
