According to this study*:
*Next week, another study will probably come out and disprove this one. Caveat lector.
And now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to have a breakfast of steak ‘n eggs (fried in butter). And a full glass of half ‘n half to wash it down.
“Every time identity politics has been used by any faction in human history for any reason violence eventually follows. No matter how detailed and intricate the justification, no matter how reasonable it can be made to sound as a way to correct for unequal social conditions and historical injustice, it always ends in the same foul basement of mutual fear, loathing, and depravity.” — William Ray
Follow the link and read how “wealth privilege” has been turned into “White privilege”.
You would have to have a heart of stone not to burst into delighted laughter at this story:
Last weekend, the man told his wife he was going out drinking with work colleagues, when in reality he was travelling to a motel on the outskirts of town.
Now go read the rest.
I never tire of pointing out to people that Leftism is the only socio-political philosophy in which intent is adjudged superior to consequence. In simpler terms, it means that quotes like this are on the money:
“It is amazing how far the left will go to hide the truth. Identity politics is killing this country’s competitiveness in the world and all the left cares about is quotas.”

…but miss the point, in that Leftism doesn’t care about the malevolent consequences of identity politics because the “intent” behind said politics is noble, and therefore whatever happens thereafter is irrelevant (see: Mao’s Great Leap Forward, Stalin’s destruction of the kulaks, Pol Pot’s forced agrarianism, etc. ad infinitum). In other, still-simpler words, it’s not amazing; it’s policy.
Communistatis delenda est.
From Brit Reader Quentin, asking (for a Brit) a hypothetical question:
“Do you have any thoughts on which pistol to use with wildlife, not goblins? After all, shooting snakes and other critters was one of the main uses of pistols.”
It kinda depends on the size of the critters. Basically, a .22LR will handle 99% of critter-elimination needs (shotshells in the case of reptiles). Larger critters may need a little more, but I struggle to think of many.
Myself, I carry a little NAA Mini-revolver in .22 Magnum (loaded with two CCI shotshells and three hollowpoints) if I’m out doing my morning walk (angry unleashed dogs, for the shooting of), or if I’m ever out in an area where there may be snakes and such.
(I’ve actually shot a couple of snakes with the rimfire shotshell, and the result is that the worm just goes limp — lights-out with a single shot.)
But any rimfire revolver would do, of course:
That’s a Colt Peacemaker with .22 LR / .22 WMR cylinders. For us mere mortals who don’t want to spend two grand on a rimfire plinker, there’s always the cheaper option, such as the Ruger SP101 double-action:
… or the single-action Ruger Bearcat (.22 LR only):
…or Single Six (like the Colt above, with the LR/WMR interchangeable cylinders):
…as well as the usual S&W K-22s, etc. (like this “Heritage” model):
Where was I? Oh yeah, critter guns…
If anyone has any other suggestions, I’ll happily entertain them in Comments.
