Don’t bring a knife to a gunfight

Posted · Add Comment

I’m sure you’ve heard the axiom that you don’t bring a knife to a gunfight. It really doesn’t require much explanation, but for the dimwitted among us, it is basically a warning at attempting a fight with obviously inferior weapons to those of your opponent. In an editorial published last weekend (sorry for the delay, […]

My Letter to the Editor

Posted · Add Comment

In response to the editorial published in the San Luis Obispo Tribune a few weeks back, and dissected here, I wrote a letter to the editor. It’s been more than two weeks since I sent the letter, and there’s no indication that they will be publishing it. So here it is: To the editor: The […]

Two media outlets on guns

Posted · Add Comment

The news media just doesn’t get firearms. I worked for a total of four newspapers over the course of my 15-year career in journalism. Two of those papers, The Lompoc Record and The Daily World (Aberdeen, Wash.) are hollow shells of what they once were. The third paper, The North County Times, no longer exists. And the last, The […]

Has everyone lost their minds?

Posted · 1 Comment

If the last year or so since Donald Trump won the presidency is any indication, then the answer is: “Yes, everyone has lost their minds.” Trump is unsuited for high office, let alone the presidency. But what’s really become apparent over the past few months is how woefully inept and irresponsible the mainstream media has […]

President Trump has announced that he will be awarding “THE MOST DISHONEST & CORRUPT MEDIA AWARDS OF THE YEAR” [capitalization in the original] this Monday at 5 p.m. *Yawn* A few obvious points: Substantive media criticism is not Trump’s forté. Trump would like to these awards to shame the members of the media who receive them; […]

Pleading incompetence to avoid libel damages

Posted · Add Comment

Former Alaska Gov. and Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin is suing the New York Times for libel after it accused her in an editorial earlier this year of inspiring madman Jared Loughner to attack Arizona Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords. I’m no fan of Sarah Palin, especially after she used what little Tea Party-related credibility she had when she […]

Trust no one

Donald Trump has been president of the United States for just over 5 months, and the mainstream media is still in perpetual outrage mode. One thing is clear: Don’t trust the initial reporting on anything. Yesterday the Washington Post published a story about a 2016 meeting between Republicans Kevin McCarthy, Paul Ryan and others where they confirmed […]

California’s State Religion

Posted · Add Comment

If it wasn’t clear before, it should be clear now: Moloch worship is California’s State Religion. Moloch was the ancient Caananite god of child sacrifice who has become the de facto patron of Planned Parenthood and the nation’s Democratic Party. California, a single-party state, has instituted a series of laws and used the power of the […]
