Apr 20th, 2013 | By

As if the terrorist attack this week was not bad enough, there’s a distinct possibility that there could be a civil war in the United States within the next three to four years, hinted at only by inflammatory and ignorant statements by ESQUIRE staffer, Linda Ginsburg: “I’ll bet good money it’s a right-wing nutjob.

When the Governor Comes Knocking: S&W Governor [PRODUCT REVIEW/TV]

Dec 20th, 2012 | By

  It’s two in the morning. It’s dark. Your dog, sleeping peacefully at the foot of your bed when you turned out your side lamp, rustles you awake with a shake of its head and a flapping of its ears. He’s not barking, but he’s sniffing at the closed door of your bedroom. You grab […]

THE OTHER BAD GUY: A More Sinister Threat

May 12th, 2012 | By

When we were little kids we were taught to identify the villain in our favorite cartoon or TV shows.  All the bad guys wore black masks, were unshaven, and often wore black knit caps.    Consider the bad guys that Ralphie shoots with his BB gun in “A Christmas Story.”  As we matured and were educated […]

May 5th, 2012 | By

If one more prepper on the Discovery Channel DOOMSDAY BUNKERS and National Geographic DOOMSDAY PREPPERS lauds and pines on and on about bunkers, or speaks glowingly of a new bunker purchase and installation, I’m going to SCREAM!
