Ray Epps

Some argue that Ray Epps is a government agent. Some say that he isn’t. No matter what, Ray Epps was urging others to carry out acts that he knew were illegal, and knew that he himself wasn’t going to participate in.

There is no shortage of those types of people on the right. The right is filled with people who would urge others to take risks that they themselves are not willing to take. Some of them comment on this very blog. They will stand there and criticize others for not stacking up, while they themselves are sitting at home behind their own keyboard, safe in the sure knowledge that they themselves won’t be getting thrown in prison, because they have absolutely no intention of doing a thing.

Still, they have no problems urging others to take that very step.

Angry blog posts? Is that all you think we are doing here? I have spent tens of thousands of dollars, and been engaged in this fight for decades. I meet with Congressmen, both state and Federal. I meet with local leaders. I donate money to parties and lobbyists. I run this blog. I spent most of COVID lockdown building firearms and then giving them to people who didn’t have one. I have taught dozens of people to love freedom, and love guns.

I have paid a price for what I have done in support of our rights. I have lost jobs over my stance. I have lost relationships. My own son doesn’t speak to me any longer, because I angered his anti-gun wife and her Fudd father over my stance on gun rights.

There is more to fighting the fight for our rights than just stacking bodies and rioting. More than going fishing.

But you know what? If you think that we need to begin pulling triggers, then stop coming here and excoriating us for not doing it while you yourself are doing nothing but bitching about it on someone else’s blog. Pick up a gun and set the example. Start stacking up.

I have long said on this blog that a civil war is the last thing that we need. It is a last resort, because the person that you are, the life that you lead, is over. The cost is quite high, the outcome uncertain, and the pain will be nearly unbearable. Millions will likely die. We don’t take actions like that for light reasons, and we certainly don’t destroy a nation and our lives if there is a hope that we can accomplish our objective any other way.

Stop trying to be a Ray Epps. Put up, shut up, or go fuck yourself. Stop trying to urge others to do what you will not do. Frankly, I’m over it. Comments to this post will not be allowed.

Here he is

The shooter from Allen. Mauricio Estuardeo Garcia

Looking at Dallas court records, there is only one person with that name who was arrested at about that time. Date of birth of 10/29/1986. First arrest was for theft in 2010. The charge was reduced to a misdemeanor in a plea deal. The second arrest was in 2022, when he was arrested for felony possession of drugs and misdemeanor resisting/evading arrest. The felony drug charge was dropped in yet another plea deal.

I’m Laughing

When I was in the military, I did my six years. I did three deployments, two of them were combat deployments. I made it to the rank of E-5. With that being said, I hated the military and how it does business. Our commanding officers were largely ass kissing opportunists who would willingly kill the men in their commands for no other reason than to get promoted.

I hated the military system. I once had to move an electric motor, and it weighed quite a bit. The padeye on the overhead had a label on it saying that its working limit was 1200 pounds. The motor and its lifting rig weighed 1700 pounds. I pointed out that we would have to get a new padeye installed to do the work. Instead, the officer in charge had the label plate replaced to read 1800 pounds. He ordered me to do the move anyway, and when the rig fell apart one of my guys lost three fingers on his left hand. That’s the kind of shit I saw officers do. They give orders, but enlisted and junior NCOs pay the bill. I can count the number of officers that I actually respected on the fingers of that guy’s hand.

I had a lieutenant once tell me that he could order me to do whatever he wanted, and I would have to obey, because as far as I was concerned, he was god. The guy was a real dick.

I could tell you a hundred stories, but let’s just say that I have no love for officers. They often throw around their authority like only immature idiots can do when given some real power, taking every opportunity to abuse that power because they can. So hearing that a bunch of them are getting fucked over by the military reinterpreting regulations to their own advantage made me laugh.


To the people who think that the Walt Disney Company is going to move out of Florida, I want you to realize just how large the Disney World complex in Central Florida is:

  • 25 resort hotels
  • 4 theme parks
  • 2 full sized water parks
  • The Walt Disney World Resort complex encompasses 30,500 acres, making it approximately the same size as San Francisco.
  • 25 years ago, it cost over $800 million to build Animal Kingdom, one of the 4 parks
  • The Orlando airport has 4 runways, with three of them being over 10,000 feet long.
  • The area is served by three interstate highways and two major airports (Tampa and Orlando)

Some of the attractions in the parks, and what they cost to build (adjusted to 2023 dollars)

  • (Expedition Everest) cost $150 million and took three years to build
  • The Tower of Terror cost $280 million
  • Remy’s Ratatouille Adventure — $120 Million
  • Test Track $300 million

It’s safe to say that the Disney complex would cost a couple of hundred billion dollars. Explain to me how a company is going to build all of that and its infrastructure. They would have to find vacant land encompassing nearly 50 square miles, near major highways and airports, and with a sufficiently large city in the area that would allow for a large enough labor pool to be able to staff this park. Then they would have to come up with $200 or $300 billion in funding, then wait the five or six years it would take to build this park.

Not happening.

Private is the Key Word

When you send your child to a private school, you do so because that school offers a better education than does a public school. One of the ways that they do that is by controlling the environment through different rules than are present in public schools. You agree to those rules when you enroll, and this is especially true of religious based private schools.

So for a female student to become outraged and complain when a Christian private school requires her to wear a dress in order to attend a school sponsored prom is a bit disingenuous. It would make as much sense if she was outraged when asked to pray before class. You can always go to a different school.
