Coming this weekend

I just hit "send" on the email containing this weekend's column in the San Luis Obispo Tribune. The subject is faux Republican Donald Trump and why conservatives shouldn't vote for him. Writing the column late last night there were quite a few paragraphs that ended up on the proverbial cutting room floor. I'll craft those into […]

Latest column

My latest column in Sunday's San Luis Obispo Tribune is available here. It deals with public financing of municipal elections. This bad idea was proposed by the same group fronted by anti-First Amendment crusader William Ostrander, who's apparently running to replace the retiring Rep. Lois Capps this fall. In the past couple of days there have hilariously […]

Religion and Politics

I'm generally not enthusiastic about politicians invoking their religion as either a sword or a shield in election battles. Most of the time it's unseemly, and, considering what one generally has to do to make the national stage as a politician, it's largely a façade. In the 2004 Democratic primary, former New Hampshire Gov. Howard […]

Sacramento goes on an anti-gun crusade

In case you missed it, my weekend column in the San Luis Obispo Tribune is available here. The column focuses on many of the new anti-gun laws currently making their way through the California legislature and notes one thing they have in common: none of them would've stopped last year's terrorist attack in San Bernardino. I […]

The Gun Laws We Have

Yesterday, former Democratic state Sen. Leland Yee was sentenced to five years in prison on public corruption charges. (Media bias note: The Associated Press story does not identify Yee as a Democrat.) Yee made a name for himself as a legislator in a couple of ways. Video gaming sites noted that the legislator gained some notoriety […]

Expansion of the Hoystory media empire

The local newspaper, the San Luis Obispo Tribune, has "hired" me as their conservative columnist in an expansion of the Hoystory media empire. Hired in the "you're doing this for free" sense of the word. I'm normally opposed to working for free because that devalues my work product. (I don't want to think about how this blog […]

No longer conservative

The San Diego Union-Tribune has been a "conservative" newspaper for just about all of my life. That construction isn't really accurate. The Union-Tribune editorial page has been conservative for all my life. The newsroom, like just about every American newsroom was overwhelmingly liberal. That run has ended. The paper is no longer conservative. When the Opinion Page […]

War on guns

Despite a decidedly pro-2nd Amendment trend in state legislatures across the country, California continues its war on guns without respite. San Francisco today passed yet another law requiring people to secure firearms left in vehicles in that city that is home to not a single gun store. The law was prompted by the murder of […]

Doritos was one of the advertisers during the CBS broadcast of Super Bowl 50 yesterday. One of their ads was this clever one: Which didn't sit well with the harpies controlling the NARAL Pro-Choice America Twitter feed. #NotBuyingIt - that @Doritos ad using #antichoice tactic of humanizing fetuses & sexist tropes of dads as clueless & […]

Yesterday, I visited a senior living complex.

I met a little old lady sitting in a wheelchair with a tube in her nose.

When she saw me, she lit up, moved her tube, and said,
“Kick Rand Paul’s ass!”

The room erupted.

I put my hand on her shoulder and calmly said, “Yes Ma’am.”

Rust Assistant Director Backs Up Baldwin's Account https://bearingarms.com/tomknighton/2021/12/03/rust-baldwin-n52882

But unlikely. Since no reports of injuries to Baldwin's hand.
