I'm gong to go on record and predict the EU's demise by the close of 2020. They will go kicking and screaming all the way. I can imagine them resorting to the threat of war against defector nations in their desperation to hold on to power, but these will be empty threats that will only … Continue reading The Italian Boot Will Kick EU Butt!

Dedicated as it is to seeing all citizens completely disarmed and thus helpless before the power of the state and criminals, the Main Stream Media will never hesitate to push the narrative that we need ever more draconian gun control. It will plaster every tragic shooting across its every medium 24/7 with all the righteous … Continue reading A Good Gal With A Gun Saves The Day!
And The New York Times wants to help! But when the NY Times says it wants to help, what the Ol' Gray Lady really means is that the government should do something. I love books, libraries and the right bookshop can trap me for hours on end if I'm not careful. But I don't like Barnes and … Continue reading Barnes & Noble Is Crumbling
