Wishing Everyone a Great Thanksgiving Celebration


As we gather
‘Round the table
Enjoy the company
Stay nice a stable

Visit with friends,
And family, too
Keep discussions calm
And take this cue:

When Uncle Bill
Brings up Trump
Pass the ‘tatoes
Say, “Don’t be a chump”

Tell Uncle Bill
“If politics you must discuss”
“Grab a leg”
“And go leave us”

Then boot his butt
Onto the stoop
Return to the meal
Enjoy the group

You’ll be happy
And he’ll be sad
But peace will reign
And everyone glad

My Father’s two uncles were Antifa. One was Antifa in every major land battle of the Pacific Theater, while the other, for whom I am named, lost his life during Antifa operations in Sicily.

Shame to those who choose to forget.

How is El Paso holding up since the white supremacist attack?


I went to my favorite El Paso local gun store today. Almost no .380 ACPs left. Nearly empty cases once filled with Glocks, Walthers, and SIGs.

S&W SW99 in .45 ACP; Walther P99c AS in 9mm

Elsewhere across town, concealed carry courses are sold out, and additional classes are being added.

Colt Government Models in .45 ACP and .38 Super +P

The next white supremacist piece of garbage coming here is going to be in for a rude awakening.
