Rule 5: The LeMat revolver

AF-Colt-.25-reverse-side (1)

Beautiful $3,295 working reproduction of the Confederate black-powder favorite LeMat revolver. Originals were hand-made in New Orleans. Part revolver, part shotgun, all sex.

“It was the only percussion revolver of the mid-19th century that rivaled the 1847 Walker Colt for sheer audacity of size and power. A unique looking firearm, the LeMat had a movable hammer that offered the option of firing a massive 9-shot .42 caliber cylinder from the top barrel and a second, lower shotgun barrel chambered for a grapeshot paper cartridge – the coup de grace.”

It was carried by, among others, Rebel cavalryman J.E.B. Stuart and also one of the Rebel officers in my novel Knoxville 1863. Click the pix to biggerize it for better detail.

No need to panic over “amnesty”

And probably no need to impeach, either, despite what I said earlier. The Worm’s big amnesty decree was a lot less than advertised, which is typical of him and his administration.

“Mass amnesty would be unfair,” Obama said during the primetime address.

Also unconstitutional. Even his temporary delay of deportations for an unspecified number of illegals will likely be overturned by the courts anyhow. Meanwhile it does little to add to the tax burden of the rest of us. Except in Texas where a proposed lawsuit may take care of our border expenses eventually.

Not all agree: Obama’s Amnesty Order Harms Jobs, Schools, Health and Simple Fairness, Black Activists Say. I’m sure some legal aliens would agree.

Still, I think former Reagan advisor and scifi author Jerry Pournelle has it:

This is not a time to panic. The President has exceeded his authority, but not in a catastrophic way. He has issued a decree that states that it is reversible. Some of his legal people have asserted that he has more powers he hasn’t used yet, but for the moment he has done nothing that he could not have done, tediously, by issuing 5 million pardons….

“Now, we hope, some sense will settle into the Congress and result in some realistic approach to the problem of ten to the seventh [power] illegal aliens unlawfully present within our borders. We would deal with an invading army; surely we can deal with this?”

If they were all armed and belligerent, sure, but for the most part they’re peaceful and hard-working. More so than some black and white citizens, though the asians still put all of us to shame. The only real complaint I have is that old canard about how they’re doing the work Americans won’t do, which is b.s. considering a lot of the work is skilled construction. But if you take that to mean voting Democrat, then it’s a pretty good joke. Until they do it.

I still like Instapundit’s idea: “You know, if one of the GOP big-money donors — I’m looking at you, Sheldon Adelson — is smart, he’ll fund a welcome-wagon operation in swing states. Reach out to these newly-amnestied immigrants, help them get jobs, connect them with social services, offer them American civics education to help integrate, register them Republican. . . .”

Face the inevitable and beat the Dumbos at their own game. Just don’t turn into full-throttle McCain-Romney RINOs, please.

UPDATE:  This makes perfect sense. Which, of course, is why it will be ignored.

Scientists agree: Warming has nearly stopped

clip_image004_thumb5

Actually, they didn’t say “dangerous.” That’s the Worm’s lie. No surprise. He lies.

What he also didn’t say is what WUWT does: “…while 97% of scientists may agree that global warming is caused by humans, virtually 100% agree that global warming has stopped or slowed considerably during the 21stcentury.”

I still contend that this climate change dodge (a wholly-owned subsidairy of the Democrat Party) is a tax scam, just like Obamacare.

If you dare: the Har Nof butchery

Even the Democrat Progs at the New Republic finally get it:

“…the senselessness and brutality of the synagogue assault, and the otherworldliness of the victims, lays bare the inadequacy of rational political explanations for terror. No doubt the murderers had their grievances (and some perhaps were reasonable), but the butchery in Har Nof shows that any sense of strategy has been overwhelmed by hate. The murder of non-Zionist Torah scholars is an attack on Jews more than Israel, and explaining it requires an understanding of hatred, not of politics.”

Watch a video of aftermath pix to see the butchery of four middle-aged rabbis, ambushed at prayer by two young Arab terrorists, the pictures the news media does not want you to see. If you dare.

Once more: Random Thoughts

Tonight’s reportedly-planned speech in which self-crowned King Worm will announce his unconstitutional amnesty for millions of mainly Hispanic illegals will start a stampede of new ones looking for the same deal.

It should get him impeached. It only takes the House to impeach. At the very least the House should cancel the money he needs to make his amnesty work. They have that power. We’ll see if the Stupid Party has the cajones to do either one. I’m betting not. Just bluster. More bluster.

Meanwhile, Texas, which Gov. Rick Perry says spends $12 million a month trying to secure the border with Mexico because King Worm and the Democrat Party refuse to enforce existing federal law to do it, is planning to sue. For the $12 million a month and for the extra millions that will have to be spent to deal with the fresh surge of illegals amnesty is likely to encourage.

There’s no need for revolution against this Democrat would-be dictator, however. Passive resistance is the very best course against overweening government: like the millions not signing up for ObamaCare and the thousands in Connecticut refusing to register their guns. I’d skip not filing income taxes, however.

Heresy update: Slow Joe Biden would make a much better president than the Lizard Queen. Just about anybody would. He’s more competent, believe it or not. He’s had to do his own stealing all by himself to get to be a millionaire. She’s had a serial predator to help her do it.

She and the Groper must be salivating thinking of all those White House antiques back in their hands again after 2016. They’ll have a much better idea of what to steal this time.

People who carry concealed pistols have a responsibility to practice, both dry-fire at home and with bullets on a range, to be ready and confident for if/when the need ever comes.

Arts and Sciences: Probably the only field in which you could fake having a doctorate, since so much of the academic version is twaddle to begin with.

Don’t move to Texas, please.  Not only do we have illegal aliens (including terrorists, no doubt) surging across the border, fire ants in every back yard, and roaches as big as your hand, on some roads, there is no speed limit. It helps to drive a big truck with a hardy brush popper for the deer that wander across highways, especially at night. Why, you could get killed down here.

Drinking plain old water is what works, every time, to both sober up and cure a hangover. Too many people waste their time drinking coffee. Or some lame concoction they saw in a movie. Alcohol depletes water in the body. Get it?

Well, that’s one more “probe” down the memory hole at Fart, Barf & Itch. They’re still searching for the phone numbers of the conservative victims of the IRS. Now they claim they’re going to investigate Jerusalem’s synagogue massacre. Just what the Israelis need, I’m sure, more stumble-bum gumshoes from Fort Beltway.

The Dream Speech of 1963 put the FBI into action, wiretapping Dr. King as a suspected Communist on order of the Democrat Kennedys. Obviously the content of their character wasn’t worth judging. Later it was claimed they were concerned about his opposition to the Vietnam war, but that came long after the Dream Speech set them off.

After all these years of ever-higher black unemployment, 80-something percent among young men at last report despite a half-black president, it would be amazing if they weren’t desperate enough to finally leave the Democrat plantation.

Rule 5: Girl with Gun

Unidentified high school senior in Broken Bow, Nebraska poses with her hunting rifle and buck antlers for her yearbook picture, a smart new policy in the rural school district which is upsetting the Progs. Ah, fly-over country. I love it!

Wish she’d come down here and shoot a few of the deer we have roaming all over our neighborhood thanks to a recalcitrant city council with a Bambi-complex.

Palestinian terrorists kill four rabbis, one cop

Times of Israel editor David Horovitz reiterates: It’s not going to work.

“For this is the homeland of the Jewish nation, the only place we have ever been sovereign or sought sovereignty. And what needs writing and saying, most especially on a terrible day like today, is that we will not be driven from it.”

The two terrorists, who used knives, axes meat cleavers, and a pistol, were killed by Israeli police at the scene, a synagogue in Jerusalem. Hamas supporters in Gaza danced in the streets and handed out candy to celebrate the bloodshed. Bibi promised retribution.

Austin’s Congregation Agudas Achim held a prayer service at 6 p.m. to mourn the innocent, show solidarity with Israelis and pray for the peace of Jerusalem.

UPDATE:  Despicable CNN headlined the deaths of the two Palestinians. Then called the synagogue a mosque. Hours later they apologized.
