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!

First, the sacred: Chaplain to the RKBA Blogosphere Anthony Martin helps us all focus on the Holy-Day through music:







This year a new addition: Merry Christmas from Chuck Norris!

Or, if you prefer to commemorate the (profane) ghosts of Christmas past:

Ho! Ho! Ho! Happy New Year!

Barry Saunders OWNS A GUN!



More Restaurant Carry hijinks and hilarity from the Capital of North Carolina courtesy of correspondent RALEIGH CONSTITUENT:

Dear John Jacob;

You can file this under hashtag #bolshevikbegone or #bolshevikhypocrite.

Restaurant carry continues to roil the formerly placid waters of North Carolina’s murky backwater Communist Swamp.

You may remember last summer the current owner of the highest of high-profile DEMOCRAT Progressive Liberal watering holes learned to his horror and amazement his fellow travelers in the Bolshevik Community carried pistols in his restaurant for years whether it was legal or not.


This year another high-profile DEMOCRAT restaurateur was shocked when his new restaurant was robbed days after opening ceremonies which included prominent display of a “no guns” sticker on the entry door.

Roundly heckled on social media about a possible connection between “no guns” and “armed robbers” local celebrity eatery entrepreneur Greg Hatem declared he was mad as hell and offered a $2,000 dollar reward for the capture and conviction of the illiterate miscreants who failed to abide by the posted notice that declared his facility “gun free”.


But the BIG NEWS in this story is the revelation that Barry Saunders OWNS A GUN!

Yes, I repeat, Barry Saunders, DEMOCRAT card-carrying left-wing progressive local print columnist, who never saw a Bolshevik talking point he did not french kiss ad nauseam in multiple columns which (ostensibly) discussed a myriad variety of topics, OWNS A GUN!

He not only owns a gun but he owns it in Durham- North Carolina’s gun control capital!

Yes, in the course of chastising hecklers who dared comment on the travesty of a public no guns policy for a high traffic (and cash rich) venue Mr. Saunders revealed he once openly brandished a pistol as he chased a home invader from his apartment into the fair streets of the city! Not only did he brandish a gun but he clearly intended to shoot an unarmed man with premeditation! What “duty to retreat” restriction muddied his progressive thought process? Question: Did the perp wear a hoodie? Just curious, I say, just curious.


Can you say Bolshevik Jane Fonda Hypocrite? I thought you could! At least he is honest about the “ridiculous self” part!

Naturally, no discussion of the publicly correct, privately corrupt Mr. Saunders qualifications to possess, transport or use any implement of modern technology as beneficial as a bullet spewing mechanical device.

He clearly travels amongst the “rules for thee but not for me” crowd.

So if you meet him on the street be careful. That thing in his pocket does not mean he is happy to see you and it might just accidentally discharge! At least that is what North Carolina pinko’s tell the rest of us!


Gosh, I love this state!

Bemusedly yours,
Raleigh Constituent

Big Government is NOT the Problem!


Big Government is NOT the Problem! Your neighbors, your associates, in some cases your relatives are the problem. Dumb Masses encircle you.

We live now in a society so thoroughly marinated in a culture of Government Boondoggle it is impossible to untangle the threads between undistorted markets and Bureaucratic Largesse.

Large swaths of Americans do not hate government, they LOVE government for all the blessings and benefits a contract, grant funding or even just outright freebies can bring. A triple threat, we live now in a government of the boondoggle, by the boondoggle, for the boondoggle that shall never perish from the Earth!

Gone forever are the days when the biggest threat to America was some nebulous “Military/Industrial Complex”. We live now in a time of The Education/Retail Complex; The Public Transportation/Asphalt Complex; The Sewer Treatment/Industrial Pipe Complex; The Agriculture/Farm Subsidy Complex; et. al.

“Red states” and “blue states” do not define the division between those who wish for more government and those who do not.

The division for and against Leviathan Government is more accurately defined by individuals who benefit from government in some obvious direct fashion and individuals who do not.

The list of individuals who benefit from Leviathan Government Largesse is long and endless- from the Mom-and-Pop sign shop who win the lettering contract for shiny new municipal Garbage Trucks to the centralized print facility responsible for the distribution of thousands of Handicapped Parking signs across the nation;from the small businesses who bid to paint city streets with bicycle lanes to corporations who supply high end stainless steel commercial restaurant equipment to Public School Cafeterias; not to mention an entire vehicle manufacturing industry whose sole product is specialized yellow buses to transport every juvenile in modern society from every dusty nook and cranny of the country to and from the soul crushing abattoirs known as “High” Schools or “Junior” High Schools or even “Elementary” Schools.

From coast to coast and sea to shining sea, pick a card, any card, and someone, somewhere bids on the relevant government contract.

Dairy farmers? Check.
Fire Trucks? Check.
Police Patrol Cars? Check.
Traffic Lights? Check.
Traffic Signs? Check.
Desks? Check.
Tables, Chairs? Check and check.
Electronic Conference Equipment? Check.
Pencils, Paper, Pads, Office equipment? CheckCheckCheckCheckCheck.

Tired yet? Remember all this comes BEFORE ANY discussion of “THE FREE STUFF ARMY”

Yes, there remains to enumerate and identify:

Section 8 Housing
Aid to Families with Dependent Children
Earned Income Credit
Electronic Benefit Transfer Cards
Obama Phones

Former FBI agent, Dan Smoot, succinctly summed up the situation in his broadcast number 649 January 29, 1968:

England was killed by an idea: the idea that the weak, indolent and profligate must be supported by the strong, industrious, and frugal–to the degree that tax consumers will have a living standard comparable to that of taxpayers; the idea that government exists for the purpose of plundering those who work to give the product of their labor to those who do not work. The economic and social cannibalism produced by this communist-socialist idea will destroy any society which adopts it and clings to it as a basic principle–any society.

Sleep well, America, sleep well.
