I Love These "No Touch Knockout" Guys.

I bet I can knock this guy out using just my voice too. I just have to tell him there's a hero sandwich waitng for him and all he has to do is run up one flight of stairs to get it!......

My favorite part is the girl using the legendary "invisible ball of energy" trick. LOL!!!!!!!!

The Latest On Syria

With all the election BS dominating the media these days, the Civil war & ISIS advances in Syria have fallen by the wayside. However since Russia jumped in to prop up the Al Assad regime, things have changed in that theater of conflict in the wacky world of the Middle East.

There is no doubt that Russia's first interest is keeping Assad in power so as to maintain their Naval base at Tartarus and to keep Saudi Arabia and Qatar from building natural gas lines to Turkey which would threaten Russia's stranglehold on natural gas supply to Europe. ISIS (or Da'esh, pick the name you like) has only been able to make the gains they have in Syria (1/3 of the country) by exploiting the civil war that cropped up about 5 years ago. Russia is hammering the non-ISIS groups so that Assad can get his act together and then concentrate on ISIS.

A good strategy no matter what you think of Assad or Putin.

For the moment it seems that Russia and Iran have come together in order to stabilize the region to their mutual benefit. For a medium range time-frame this works well for Russia and for the long range it works well for Iran. It works out very poorly for both the USA and Saudi Arabia. With China's economy currently taking a tumble at the moment, Russia can concentrate on propping up his economic future by hurting the Saudi's, whose current price war in what has apparently been a very successful campaign against Shale Oil, are his biggest economic enemy.

As for the USA, like it or not we've become bit players in the region.

The link below is to an article as to the current state of military operations in Syria by Russia.

The Things It TakesTo Change Opinions On Firearms Ownership

Just as his attempts at Gun Control have made President Obama the best salesman the firearms industry ever had, terror and crime are causing other formerly anti-gun advocates in the Law Enforcement area to change their song on firearms ownership. It's unfortunate that it takes the threat of terror within the continental United States to do it, but human nature is what it is.

Chris Christie On The 2nd Ammendment

So I caught bits and pieces of the Republican debate last night. My favorite bullshit part was watching Chris Christie giving his stand on the 2nd Amendment. I knew he was full of shit, but I wanted specifics so I did a quick google search and found everything I needed in one article. As far as his claim that' he's "changed his position", the only thing that's changed is that now he wants to get elected the President of the United States and not the Governor of New Jersey.

Drones, Airspace And The Benelli M1 Super 90

Two weeks into the new year and a nice shiny new drone story. Criminal charges against the homeowner who shot the drone down have already been dismissed. Now the owner of the drone is suing for the damage to his quadcopter.
This could end up being a precedent setting case.

Rise Of The Independents

The latest Gallup poll results show that 40% of American voters no longer belong to or identify with either the democratic or Republican parties. I've been telling this to people for the last 10 years now. Elections are won by motivating the particulars parties base and figuring out what is the most immediate concern of Independent voters.
The old guard on both sides of the political aisle are ever more rapidly losing their relevancy. It's going to make for an inreasingly bumpy ride but change is always inevitable and rarely comfortable.

Bad Day At The Stop and Rob

As a gun owner, both NYC and NY State suck to live in. However with a little luck, some balls, and the right amount of sneakiness, you can still succeed. It also helps if the Bad Guy never took a course on situational awareness.
