Baa, Baa, Rainbow Sheep - A More Politically Correct Nursery Rhyme

You might remember the nursery rhyme Baa, Baa, Black Sheep Have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, Three bags full. One for the master, One for the dame, And one for the little boy Who lives down the lane. An innocent enough ditty, and one I’d always thought to be related to the fact that black sheep are rare and so have a more valuable wool than normal white sheep – or at least […]

Shameful DE Human Rights Commission Ruling Overturned

Time for some straight talking and clear thinking, folks.  Unless you’ve had your head in the sand for a decade or more, you’ll know that any type of ‘Human Rights’ or ‘Race Relations’ or ‘Equality’ commission or board or other quango group is appallingly biased and myopically focused not on free, full, and fair rights for all, but instead obsessed with finding often imaginary slights and affronts that may possibly relate to certain minority pressure […]

Political Correctness Infects the Navy (Old News, but....)

Okay, sadly there’s nothing particularly new about how all our armed services have shame-facedly capitulated to the overwhelming force of political correctness. After all, the two main reasons the Fort Hood muslim terrorist was so successful (13 killed, 29 wounded) were : (a)  Because soldiers aren’t trusted with firearms.  Yes, read that again slowly – we don’t trust our soldiers with firearms, even on their own base. (b)  Because the terrorist was a muslim terrorist.  […]

What's Wrong With This Picture - Columbia U vs ROTC

We all go through various phases in our lives.  The terrible twos.  The teens.  Perhaps a mid-life crisis.  Maybe even dementia.  But surely the worst of all stages is as we exit the teens and become fully empowered with all the rights of adulthood that society chooses to bestow upon us, but none of the maturity and sense with which to use our new rights. The picture, taken from this NY Post article, illustrates a […]

Learning from Other's Experiences

Here’s an interesting couple of videos – the first being an interview with a homeowner in the Denver CO area who was forced to defend himself against three intruders who broke into his house one night.  At least one of the intruders was armed; the homeowner defended himself successfully with his own pistol, and subsequently was interviewed on a local news program. The second interview is with the Denver District Attorney who explains why, according […]

A Pretty Pink Ladies Gun - Fail

So I was doing what I like best the other day – browsing through a gun shop.  As seems to so often be the case, it was busy with lots of people and too few store assistants, and I found myself chatting with a woman waiting to be served.  She was probably in her early 60s. She was considering the purchase of her first ever firearm.  Her adult children were encouraging her in this and […]
