Pay Them Homage...

 ...those of our military services who lost their lives in defense of our country. This is their day but remember them always, on every day of the year, as defenders of each and every one of us, of our way of life, our Constitution and of the great nation in which we live. We owe them everything because they gave everything for us.

All the best,

Let's Start A New Political Party...

 ...or at least a new branch of the Libertarian and Conservative parties. We can take a shot at calling ourselves Gunservatives©, 2021. It kind of rings in the ears.

Spring Cleaning

 I cleaned up most of the links, if not all of them, on the right side of my blog. Guess it was about time, some links like my blogroll contained blogs that were inactive for 4 years or more.
Oh well.

Only 8 Days...

 ...for the IRS to deposit our tax refund into our (my wife's and my) account. I say our because while separated, we are not legally separated for IRS purposes and thus can still file married filing jointly. President Trump certainly streamlines the whole damned process relative to federal income taxes and I have to give him credit for that. Of course, my guess is Biden will do two things about that - somehow he will claim credit at least for speedy refunds this year and then he will totally change, as in destroy, President Trump's tax reforms and also will screw over our economy (in the long run) and do so immensely. Just wait and see and then remember that I predict the dems will also claim the economy was ruined by President Trump after they themselves demolish it.

I must say, now that I've gotten the refund, I do not feel so bad about buying that Glock 19 Gen5 a few days ago. As a matter of fact, I have have to close down the ad I have running on a local forum in which I am trying to sell my Glock 30 to make up the funds for the Glock 19 purchase.
That is all.

All the best,

I Attained Perfection Today - Glock Perfection

It's been awhile since I went to the indoor range with some pistols; so, I went to the Texarkana Gun Barn & Range (aka:Alpha Pistol Training) today. I brought along my Glock 19 Gen5 in 9mm, my Beretta Model 87 Target in 22 LR and my High Standard Durango revolver also in 22 LR. I shot about 100 rounds through the 22s and about 200 rounds through the Glock. I need to qualify next month for LEOSA with the Glock 19 and was quite satisfied, in fact somewhat elated, with my shooting - it would have been rated at least Expert. Made me happy I still have it with the old eyes and arthritis and all.

As I was saying goodby to the owner and about to leave, that elation still coursing through my nerves like a 1,001 Danish Delights, I asked if he had any Glock 19 Gen 5 pistols available under the Glock Blue Label program. He asked if I wanted standard or Ameriglow (?) sights. I said standard and he said yes. He went into the back room, brought one out and before he could even set it down, I asked the price. He said $425.00 and I said I'll take it. Then I had a moment of intelligent thought strike me and said - once I look it over to make sure it's alright, then I'll take it. We laughed.. He opened the box, checked to assure it was unloaded and handed it to me with the mag back in and slide closed. Since I had just watched his every move, I took it that way and of course it was unloaded when I checked it myself a moment latter. Then I did the paperwork and paid for it before walking out the door with my second Glock 19 Gen 5 pistol.

I sent a text to my son about it and he replied:

"Just spending that money."

I answered back:
"...And what do you think I should do with it, keep it in the bank so you get it and so your sister get it. I'm going to spend some of it before I croak..."

While I did spend some of my kids' potential inheritance and while the regular asking price was $599.99 plus tax for one of these; the $453.69 that I paid to get it out the door was excellent. Now if only I could afford some ammo to shoot through it:rolleyes:. Really no worries with ammo, I have a few thousand rounds of 9mm stashed here and there. Anyway, I may decide not to shoot this one at all at least for awhile as I may sell it or gift it somewhere down the road.
Folks, if you are military or a first responder (retired is okay) and are in the market for a Glock and then do not take advantage of their Blue Label Program, I guess you are either made of money or nuts.
All the best,

It Is Hypocritical Beyond The Scope Of My Imagination...

 ...and my imagination runs pretty wild at times. The fact that the Biden Administration has essentially opened our southern border to any scum that wants to enter our country; yet, has just extended a nonessential travel ban to Mexico and Canada by U.S. Citizens is not only two faced - it is absolutely absurd. More at the source
What is it they are attempting to do or saying they are accomplishing with an extension of this Covid-19 related travel ban. Are they going to claim they are protecting the citizenry of our nation by making it less likely for someone to go to a third world dump like Mexico and then contract Covid-19 and thus maybe bring it back to the US of A to infect others. If that is their claim, well then that, of course, would be preposterous. The tsunami of illegal aliens that is gushing out of Mexico into the US is essentially unchecked and is probably an excellent vector for the Novel Corona Virus and scores of other diseases, maladies and parasites. 
At least any travel ban under President Trump was also backed up by his tough policies against illegal entry into the country by the scum of the earth. Yes I believe that anyone whose first act on American soil was a crime (and yes illegal entry is a crime) is the scum of the earth. Lest you think that is not enough reason to call them such - just take a look at what Biden has invited here - more future welfare recipients, criminals, terrorists and such.
Think about what should have been done by him had he really and truly wanted to improve the lives of deserving individuals by way of immigration. He could have just as easily told each  and every person - who had followed all the rules, who had legally filed applications for entry to the USA and who was qualified to legally immigrate to the USA - that they need not wait another minute let alone the many years it takes most of them to be cleared to immigrate here and he could have allowed them to enter legally immediately! 
Why not do that for those who did everything right! They have waited (many of them for years already) to be granted the honor and privilege to come here and what does Biden do - essentially tells them to fuck off and wait longer (and yes, because of the illegals who are supposedly being processed, each person who has applied for legal entry must wait even longer to come here). Why? Because he has opened our borders to the scum of the earth. 
Don't tell me it is a humanitarian effort on Biden's part to save the downtrodden. He could have more easily and less expensively sent aid to them in their own countries rather than have them invade our border states and instantly become wards of the state. Liberalism truly is a mental disorder and he suffers from it more than most in my opinion.

He Is A Fucking Disgrace... my opinion and the he to whom I refer is Joe The Commie Loving Leftist Biden. How many times does he have to quote Chairman Mao before people realize he is a commie lover and seek his removal from office. Not only does he incessantly lean toward communism and ultra-leftism but he does it with arrogance beyond belief. 
When he recently quoted Mao, at of all things the graduation proceedings of a U.S. Coast Guard Academy class, he then chided them for not finding him funny. More at the source. The man is an absolute piece of shit in my opinion.

Man it must have been loud, the big bang that is. I would think that if done in a liberal stronghold of a state, like NY, the authorities would have said the shock waves might have injured the fetus or at least burst some onlookers' ear drums and would have arrested the guy for more serious charges. Being it was in New Hampshire though, he got off easy, as should be the case in the event charges absolutely had to be filed and I will admit - I guess he did disturb the peace. 
Do you not know to what I am referring; if not then see more at the source about the guy blowing up 80 pounds of Tannerite for a gender reveal party! Yes that was eighty pounds! Oh yeah - congratulations mama & papa - it's going to be a boy.

As Do The Deer - The Houses For Sale Laughed At Me...

 ...on my house hunting trip over the last few days. The four I actually looked at all had what appeared to be either many minor to medium sized problems and two had major problems. One of those two looked nice and was in a great secluded location but had foundation problems and the floors were uneven and cracked, the other also had foundation problems and it felt as if you were in a funhouse at the amusement park (or maybe just drunk and dizzy) once you walked in the door - it's floors were that slanted. There were two excellent houses on my list but both of those were already under contract before I got to TN; they were each on the market about a week. Nice houses are selling fast, very fast. Oh well, the realtor promised me she will be looking at house for me and call me if any other really nice ones come up for sale. 

 I am happy about that because the cost of another few days trip is prohibitive. I am guessing I spent $650 to $750 on  a six day trip and I spent two nights of those days at my son's house.

All the best,

Gone Hunting...

 ...that's house hunting not turkey or pig hunting. Or should say, I am going hunting. Not going to say exactly where I'll be but I have seen some nice houses advertised, some with acreage up to 20 acres or so for well under 200K. Seen some others around $140 with very little land but nice enough to consider buying and then going out to buy 20 to 50 acres of land nearby. 

I'd rather pay off a mortgage than pay rent. I most certainly am not looking forward to another rent increase in August when my lease is up. I also am not looking forward to remaining in my current apartment complex as it not all that great and I think will soon get worse. Yes, they are doing renovations to some extent but they are being done haphazard at best and too little too late to suit me. Even if the landlords renovated everything here and made it look nice, it would only be for the sort term because many of the tenants here, not all mind you but many, are absolute slobs and have no respect for their neighbors or for the property.

Time will tell if I buy a house or not but I had best be fast before Biden devalues the U.S. $ by printing more and more of them and causing massive inflation. Prices going up more and more and more due to anticipated inflation, as they already have been over the past few months already, and the belief this place is headed further downhill has me sick & tired of paying rent to live in what fast is heading toward becoming a slum. No matter how much they fix it, I think the tenants will turn it into one. I'd prefer to be the lord & master of my own house and land than pay rent to a slumlord. I can only hope at least some of the houses I am targeting have cable TV and high speed Internet available. Please wish me luck on they hunt.

All the best,
Glenn B

BLM - No Response To Another Black Life Being Taken... a black person or so it seems! Go figure but I, for one thinking logically, would have thought anyone who was a member of group called Black Lives Matter and who truly thought that back lives mattered would be howling from the rooftops. Why? Well, to have this man either be executed or incarcerated for life now that he has he pled guilty to killing his very young son over a piece of cheesecake. Yes, Travis Stackhouse reportedly pled guilty to killing his 5 year old son, Sir Amer Stackhouse, because the boy ate some cheesecake the father had been given for Father's Day in 2019. He evidently struck the boy so hard that it caused sufficient blunt force trauma to kill him. 

Apparently he's another piece of shit killer of black people called to justice and from what I have seen there is ZERO stink being made about it by BLM. I guess that is because, in my opinion (and in the opinions of many others I believe), most members of BLM are  racists pure and simple and only call for action when the person doing the killing is other than black (or maybe they would also do it when a black police officer kills a black person but that is questionable).

You really have to wonder though about why anyone in a group like BLM is not out marching calling for this guys execution when he reportedly did this:

"The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner’s Office determined that Sir suffered a ruptured stomach, bruised kidneys and a torn adrenal gland. " More here at the source. How hard must he have hit him to have done that! I am sure this excellent example, of fatherhood of what is wrong in the black community, will not be punished nearly enough for his offense since he pled guilty and because BLM is not out protesting, marching, blocking traffic and or rioting to try to sway the court to assure he is punished appropriately not only for taking a black life but for destroying the future of a black child by ending his life, at such a tender age, by way of brute force.

About the only thing I will give him is that at least he has seemingly accepted responsibility even if only due to what I suspect was a plea deal.

It's About Time Utahns Awakened

 ...and they did it resoundingly when RINO Romney took to the stage there recently:


Hopefully they will get this bum out of politics as they seemingly got him away from the podium! Can you imagine the sheer gall he had to ask the crowd if they were embarrassed! Of what I wonder. I suppose my answer to myself would be that they might have been embarrassed of ever voting for him in the first place and thus are also embarrassed that he is their man in government. The man is, I think, pure RINO much akin to the late John McCain.

 By the way, I checked what to call them before calling the Utahns see: I chose to go with what they call themselves in their state - not what the federal government wants to call them. After all, it is their state.

All the best,
