Fisking Leonard Pitts

As Usual Leonard Pitts is spewing his lies to further the gun control agenda. He uses that bastion of liberalism the Washington Post as his source and fills his column with partial statistics and outright lies. As usual Leonard’s column will appear in Italics and my response will be in bold.

Our fears, our guns, and our children

Obama, Social Security and Guns

Posted by Doug Jeffreys on July 26, 2015 at 3:05 PM Comments comments (0)

There has been much discussion among pro-Second Amendment gun activists and pro-gun control activists, and I’d like to throw my two cents worth in.

  First, let me say I am a fervent supporter of the Second Amendment and a CCW permit holder for over 30 years. That being said, here is a quote from just one of the articles I’ve read: (Source - http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2015/07/20/obama-looks-to-ban-social-security-recipients-from-owning-guns/) "The Obama administrat...

SHOULD I STAY OR SHOULD I GO

Posted by Doug Jeffreys on July 13, 2015 at 11:50 PM Comments comments (0)

I love all things zombie/apocalyptic and have given much thought to various bug-out places and structures that are often discussed (even marking various primo locations on Google Earth). However, I live on a budget, like most folks, so buying an old missile silo in Wyoming or building an underground bunker like those seen on "Doomsday Preppers" is not in my game plan. I have a better idea, I'm staying home.

The town where I live was essentially owned and built to its glory betwee...

On Survival and Being a Prepper

Posted by Doug Jeffreys on July 9, 2015 at 2:15 AM Comments comments (0)

I believe anyone with a normal survival instinct is a "prepper". However, I hate the term prepper or survivalist due to the decades long smear campaign by the media. Now anytime one hears those words you immediately conjure up an image of a paranoid conspiracy theorist huddled in their log cabin surrounded by weapons and barrels full of dried legumes and beef jerky. I was a Boy Scout and believe strongly in the motto "Be Prepared". If you're prepared for the zombie apocalypse, you will be ...

A review of AUGMENT: HUMAN SERVICES

Posted by Doug Jeffreys on June 26, 2015 at 12:45 AM Comments comments (0)

I require two things from science fiction, plausible science and interesting characters. Phil Elmore delivers this and more in his first Sci-Fi tale. Pick up a copy of AUGMENT: HUMAN SERVICES and enter a dark, dystopian future that is equal parts “Blade Runner” and “Frankenstein”. The tale begins by introducing Agent David Chalmers of the Human Services department on a ‘routine’ investigation in the Tech Ghetto, where all the ‘Ogs’ (people that ...

Film Review of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Posted by Doug Jeffreys on June 25, 2015 at 1:05 PM Comments comments (0)

The Hobbit – A review (Warning Spoilers Ahead). First, let me say, I’ve read both The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings more than 40 times in the past 35 years. I know these stories almost word-for-word, so if someone buys the rights and wants to offer these tales in another medium they had better get it right. That being said Peter Jacksons’ big screen adaptation begins differently than Prof. Tolkiens’ work. It starts the week of Bilbo’s 111th birthday party show...

A review of The Undead Situation

Posted by Doug Jeffreys on August 24, 2014 at 8:50 AM Comments comments (0)

I just finished reading "The Undead Situation" by Eloise J. Knapp, and where I started off enjoying it, I could only give it 2 stars. This tale had such potential. The concept of a sociopath surviving in the zombie apocalypse, what a great idea. The problem is, after reading the first couple chapters, you realize the main character is not a sociopath. He's closer to bi-polar. If you are going to write a central character that is a sociopath and a gun enthusiast you had better know something a...

Why do I write?

Posted by Doug Jeffreys on February 3, 2012 at 11:35 PM Comments comments (0)

I thought this would be an easy answer but I had to really think about it. I suppose it started when I was about twelve. I would draw may own Super Heroes and of course, once drawn, I needed stories for them, so I started making my own comic books. The art was lame. The writing, even worse. The tales of Archie, Veronica and friends were stories of Shakespearean complexity compared to my pathetic scribbling. Quite frankly I was far more interested in drawing at that time. Thus my scripts were ...

Hard Work and Personal Responsibility

Posted by Doug Jeffreys on December 11, 2011 at 3:30 PM Comments comments (0)

I find it a little disconcerting to read a newspaper or watch the nightly news and see the people of Occupy Wall Street and all the “spin-offs” across the country disrupting the everyday comings and goings of honest, hardworking folks like you and me.

As I watched the news the other night they displayed a map of the country with little red dots to indicate each “Occupy” demonstration. Not surprisingly, all the protests were occurring in only the largest cities al...
