Oh Bother, said Pooh!

“Oh Bother”, said Pooh, as he chambered another round.

Time for some house keeping here at the JohnJacobH Blog! All the Examiner Columnists are gone and no archive remains of their work! So all the links will be erased with just commemorative screen
shots of The-Way-Things-Used-To-Be! In their place I will post new links as time and schedule allow.

Let me take this opportunity to plug the Glen Beck Radio Serials. Everyone should hear and share these Paul Harveyesque segments about all topics past and present related to the foundation of a Constitutional Representative Republic. Play them in the background while you work!

Here for example is the Milton Friedman link:

And here is the link for ALL the serials

My name is Monroe Mann and I used to have a Facebook Account. Used to? Yeah, I deleted it–and all of my 3000 ‘friends’ (who were not really my friends anyway)–irrevocably. I didn’t deactivate: I DELETED IT. It’s gone. Why? Well, I used to live in China. As much as I love China, and 虽然我觉得中国真是非常棒,I […]

Firewood Burn: Hypocrisy of the Social Elites

Canadian Common Sense

“In other words, even though wood is a renewable resource that could reduce our dependency on fossil fuels, it is being systematically outlawed by the authorities.”

This is the third consecutive winter that I’ve heated my home with firewood. We’ve got two stoves, the big one in the basement and the little one upstairs that takes the edge off when it’s -40°C. We don’t burn oil, propane or natural gas. Nor do we use any heaters powered by electricity.

Not only has this saved my family thousands of dollars for our winter heating bill, this oldest of old technological practice of burning firewood still works even if the lights go dark.  Living in a rural area, we are prone to frequent blackouts and rolling outages.

What we save in dollars does cost us in time; it is a long process to block, split, stack and bring…

Dennis Rogers Owns a Gun Too!


It must be that time of the year! Raleigh Constituent arrives with a new tale of mischief and
mayhem from the Capital City of North Carolina…..

Dear John Jacob;

Remember Raleigh News & Observer Columnist Barry Saunders?

The celebrity cheerleader who never saw a gun control idea he did not embrace
unless it violated the JaneFondian precept of “Rules For Thee, BUT Not For ME?

His reputation as a gungrabber was, ahem, slightly tarnished when he let it
slip that he, in fact, owned a gun, but was not really heavily trained in
conscientious weapon manipulation.

Barry Saunders Owns a GUN LINK HERE

It may be hard to remember Gun Control Barry because the News & Observer has
diligently scrubbed his gun control columns from the Internet.

(See for yourself GRNC LINK HERE )

Annnnnyway, the News & Observer has once again published YET ANOTHER gun control
homily and retired News & Observer Emeritus Columnist Dennis Rogers has stepped
into the cheerleader role on Facebook.

News & Observer Column Link Here

Dennis Rogers steps up to the plate with Facebook praise for Raleigh News & Observer Editorial:


EXCEPT for one small detail:

In 1998 Dennis Rogers openly admitted he kept at least one (or more!) loaded guns
around his house (WITH NO SAFETY).

Yes, Mr. Rogers joins the vast overwhelming majority of Democrats who were for an idea
before they were against it. (Known on the street as a flip flopper)


Gosh, I love this town!

Bemusedly yours,
Raleigh Constituent

No Wait NYC Gun Permit



Blue Bloods, the Tom Selleck Police Drama we love to pillory here at the JohnJacobH blog
has provided America with yet another vignette of real world (?) gun control politics.

(Link to previous Blue Bloods harangue CLICK HERE)

Already filled with endless examples of nepotism and oligarchy in a fictional Police
Commissioner’s family at the top of New York City’s Cop Shop food chain,

[[(Tom Selleck, current Police Commissioner, is the son of the
former Police Commissioner, and HIS son is current lead Detective eventually to
be groomed as the future Police Commissioner.) [Wait, there is more. Tom Selleck’s
other son is a Patrol Officer and his daughter is District Attorney, eventually
destined to become highly placed Bureaucrat-In-Charge of some aspect of the Judiciary
in Gotham City)]]

a recent episode details a wonderful moment when the wife of Lead Detective Regan
seeks to bypass that nasty 90 day wait for a pistol permit by flashing her COMMISSIONERS

Yes, if this episode is to be believed, anyone who has access to the secret club of Commissioner
Courtesy Cards has but to wave this modern magic wand to receive all the privileges of rank
denied to ordinary mundanes trapped within the borders of Oz.

Rules for WE, but not for THEE

When you watch this video courtesy of NC Gun Guy notice the furtive glance of the
actress before she produces her magic get-out-of-red tape jail-free card.
A delightful touch and worthy of an Academy Award.

Who would not be afraid to let the great unwashed dumb masses learn not all rules
apply to all people?

In Memoriam: Congressman George Hansen


One is the loneliest number and no one fought a lonelier battle than
Congressman George Hansen in his investigation of IRS abuses in 1975.

He was certainly one of the first to confront the Tyrants directly
in the modern age. Others, of course, have tried equally feebly since. CLICK LINK HERE

He discovered a seven term Congressman had no more power or influence over the
IRS than any other ordinary citizen and he paid dearly for the education.

Thank you sir for your service to an ungrateful nation.
