Sauce for the Goose
by L. Neil Smith
Throughout its history, American culture, otherwise a shining
beacon of individual liberty, has suppressed the freedom of certain minority groups,
among them, homosexuals. Unbelievable physical brutality and evil, repressive, unjust
laws characterized this period. In the latter part of the twentieth century, and the
early part of the twenty-first, that highly regrettable situation has been turned on its head.

What are rights? Where do they come from? There are a few schools of
thought about this idea. One view, and the one to which I subscribe, says that rights are
intrinsic to human beings by their very nature. In this view, phrases like "unalienable
rights" refer to the fact that human rights are part of humanity. Someone can prevent your
exercise of your rights through some unjust procedure, but the rights remain your rights.
Situational Awareness Part 2
In part 1, long ago now, I covered the basics of situational awareness in some
specific situations, along with some simple drills to help people practice this highly important skill.
'Tis the season for killing Zombies and other Monsters. Here's how to do it, re-visited.
by Neale Osborn
Good evening. It's that time of year, when good little boys and
girls should be afraid of the dark. and, since it's MY job to stalk the night, hunting
for what hunts YOU, I figured that, as a public service, I should re-visit the methods
of hunting zombies and other beasties that hunt you. in a large part, this will consist
of re-printing my two seminal works on the topics of zombie-killing, and the killing of other SNMs.
The High Frontier: My Cup of Tea
by Jeff Fullerton
Had a few more good belly laughs and raised spirit this week when I discovered
a cheesy video about the "Tea Party Space Invaders" this week. Perhaps a little dated and not very
well done but if you can bear with it a little while there are some enlightening insights to be had.
A Matter of Princely Pull
by L. Neil Smith
Years ago, I wrote an article called "Live As You Vote" in which I
suggested, for example, that only those who want higher taxes should pay them, and only
those who want sugary drinks forbidden should be denied them. Those who oppose smoking,
but don't have the cojones to quit and want to substitute the law for character
will be forbidden to buy tobacco products. Obviously, only gun control advocates should
be disarmed, which would result in cofiscation of a suprising number of guns.
Justification for use of 9-mm for Law Enforcement Partners
by FBI Training Division: FBI Academy, Quantico, VA
Rarely in law enforcement does a topic stir a more passionate debate
than the choice of handgun caliber made by a law enforcement organization. Many voice their
opinions by repeating the old adage "bigger is better" while others have "heard of this one
time" where a smaller caliber failed and a larger caliber "would have performed much
better." Some even subscribe to the belief that a caliber exists which will provide a
"one shot stop." It has been stated, "Decisions on ammunition selection are particularly
difficult because many of the pertinent issues related to handguns and ammunition are
firmly rooted in myth and folklore." This still holds as true today as it did when originally stated 20 years ago.
Neale's Gun Rant for 10-19-2014
by Neale Osborn
We are all between a rock and a hard place right now. Ebola is
coming.... Hell, it's here! Now, what to do about it. Common sense would tell us to
stop people from areas where Ebola is an epidemic from coming to our shores. With
the porous southern border (hell, KIDS walk over it all the time) what's the point?
So what do we do? Don't ask ME, I don't have a clue what will work. But taking the
temperature of people (1 in 8 Ebola patients never spike a fever), asking if they
have diarrhea (1 in 3 don't get it) or vomiting (ditto) or feeling fatigued or loss
of appetite (1 in 4 don't get fatigue or loss of appetite) so what will work? Got an idea? Lemme know!
