I'll Bet The Sanctuary Cities Movement Never Considered This Unintended Consequence

How this will play out in the long term I have no idea, but a lot of Democratic politicians mst be shaking their heads in disbelief and sheer rage at this one.

You gotta' say one thing for those rural Sheriffs Departments, as elected officials, they're willing to really stand up for their constituents!

The Socialist Follies Continue - AOC Has A Bad Week

So, firstly, after her Green New Deal idea gets slagged from all corners, Rep Ocasio-Cortez gets insulted by Patrick Moore, Co-Founder of Greenpeace no less. The short version essentially consists of him calling her a hypocrite for living the same SUV driving,cheeseburger eating lifestyle that she rails against.

However the real nastiness came when he called her, and I quote " A Pompous Little Twit".

The article linked below will provide all the necessary details;

Next, she gets taken to task by Fareed Zakaria a news host at CNN of all places. In a nutshell he goes after her for making her the case for her arguments by using "feelings" rather than facts.
I believe the statement she mad a few weeks ago was "It doesn't matter if I'm factually correct as long as I'm morally right".

And who gets to define the morality of the day, her?

And finally, we come to one of those problems that consistently pop up to confound any number of political wannabes, has beens, and never were's. AOC has now had a complaint filed against her by the Federal Election Commission (FEC). A little something to do with what happened to about $850,000.00 as regarding where it went, and who got it.

Welcome to Washington DC and the Blood-Sport that is American Politics in the 21st century Ms. Ocasio-Cortez.

Socialism In Venezuela Is So Bad, Even The Criminals Are Going Broke

Well, it looks like Socialism is good for something. Crime is dropping because the banks and armored cars have no money, people have no cash in their wallets, the armed robbers can't afford gas for the motorcycles and mopeds they use and they can't afford to buy guns on the Black Market.

Oh yeah, and the kidnappings (usually the 3rd largest crime in most Central and South American countries) are down because as a result of the hyper-inflation, a $5,000 ransom requires almost 200lbs worth of bank notes.

Ahh, the Peoples Paradise.....

You can't make this shit up!

So It Looks Like The.38 Snubby Is Slowly But Surely Being Edged Out

The article below from Claude Werners Tactical Professor Blog is quite the eye opener for the those who like revolvers for CCW/Personal Carry. I was a little stunned myself about the statistics presented, but sales numbers don't lie.

The .380 Auto has most definitely surpassed the .38 Spl Revolver. Time marches on.

Jogger Kills Mountain Lion in Colorado and BJJ Practitioners Try To Take Credit For Their Style

So a jogger in Colorado was running in a park and was attacked by a Mountain Lion. He managed to kill it despite being unarmed.

Original Article;

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-colorado-lion-attack/colorado-jogger-fends-off-kills-mountain-lion-on-rural-trail-idUSKCN1PU0UA

Somewhere it was reported that he had used BJJ, so of course the BJJ community start talking about the usefulness of BJJ for all sorts of self protection including against 4 legged predators. This was my favorite quote from the article below; "After all, one of the most famous moves in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the “Mata Leao” or “Lion Killer” strangle."


Article From BJJ Times website;

https://bjj-world.com/runner-kills-mountain-lion/

Okay, that above web article covered the fantasy. Now I know people who are realistic about the practical uses of JiuJitsu, but these guys have jumped the shark (or should I say lion) on this one. Maybe they should have waited on the facts so they could have put this one in context, which is what is what they always say to do if someone from another style touts the superiority of their methods.


Now for the reality, it turns out he killed the Mountain Lion by bashing it on the head with a rock to weaken it and then stepped on it's throat to suffocate it.

Hmmm.... Using a rock as an improvised weapon and then stomping on it's throat. Sounds like a Combatives mindset to me.
