Black Lives Matter is Getting Black People Killed

The Black Lives Matter movement is getting black people, and police officers, killed. The groundwork was laid with Trayvon Martin, a black teenager who jumped  Neighborhood Watch volunteer George Zimmerman for following him. Martin was straddling Zimmerman, raining down blows on his head when Zimmerman managed to draw his gun and shoot his attacker. Although […]

Reality is inconvenient

It was predictable, really. It didn't take but a few moments after I published the rest of my weekend column that the SLO Tribune wouldn't publish for a feminist to decide that reality is inconvenient. Seeing my warning for young women to refrain from getting inebriated, and if they do, stay close to female friends, a […]

What the Tribune won't publish

For those of you reading my column in this morning's paper, it might seem oddly short. I didn't get lazy and simply choose to not use my allotted number of words; the Tribune editors refused to publish the majority of my column. While my liberal counterpart Tom Fulks can, with almost disturbing regularity, lash out at […]

Maintaining the narrative

I usually read tech/science site Ars Technica a couple of times a day. They generally do good reporting  except when it comes to climate science—they're all-in on catastrophic anthropogenic global warming and it's not even funny. However, on the rare occasions when tech reporting crosses paths with politics, they're all about maintaining the narrative. Case […]

Media Bias, Illustrated

I've been less interested in media bias this election cycle mostly because #NeverTrump. I don't want readers to be mistaken that my criticism as to how his orangeness is treated by the media is a defense of the cheeto jesus. But this is getting ridiculous. The most interesting, and substantive, bit of news out of the […]

Veto Gunmageddon

My column in this week's San Luis Obispo Tribune highlights the effort by California gun owners to exercise a citizens veto over the dumb-as-a-bag-of-hammers "common sense" gun control laws passed this summer by our betters in Sacramento. Proponents have titled the effort: Veto Gunmageddon. I've already signed the petitions, but for those who are interested in […]

Politifact California is Stupid...

...and dishonest. And not transparent. And thin-skinned. (Hat-tip to Politifactbias.com for the original observation that Politifact California is stupid. They can remove the question mark now.) A couple weeks back, I took Politifraud's California incarnation to task for their failure to correct Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom's dishonest mischaracterization of one of their fact checks. I […]

Does Putin fear Hillary?

Yesterday, Carnegie Endowment Vice President for Studies Andrew S. Weiss made the following comment on Twitter regarding the Green Party's affinity for Russia and it's strongman, Vladimir Putin. Wherein @DrJillStein's running mate @ajamubaraka claims Russia was blamed unfairly for 2014 MH17 shootdown #Ukraine https://t.co/C4iw8deRdZ — Andrew S. Weiss (@andrewsweiss) August 6, 2016 I think that, […]

Abetting Gavin Newsom's Big Lie

Last week, Politifact's California arm issued a rating for Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom's "Safety for All" group. Politifact runs the numbers and it turns out that by cobbling together a bunch of Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) categories you can get a number that is more than 2x the number of McDonalds franchisees in the state. […]

Donald Trump, Republican

The Republican Party this week handed its presidential nomination to Donald Trump. Let me put this as succinctly as I can: If Trump represents the Republican Party, then that's not a party I can be part of. You can read more about my reasons and what I think of the GOP in my San Luis […]

I'll take a look at dude's new book, but this tweet isn't promising. Watts is a self-aggrandizing extremist whose easily debunked smears have done a lot of damage to her own cause. Also, within pro-gun-control circles everyone knows she's toxic, & Busse surely knows this. https://twitter.com/ryandbusse/status/1450623648067248128

Ryan Busse@ryandbusse

It’s time for reasonable gun owners to cry bullshit on those who demonize good people like @shannonrwatts who are just fighting to make the world better. As Shannon says…it’s also time to buy this book. http://www.ryanbusseauthor.com
