The Other Side Of The Cap

Last time, we looked at Juan-les-Pins.  Today, we’ll go about a mile east across Cap- d’Antibes, and look at the far-less trendy Antibes itself — which I have to say, I prefer to its glitzy neighbor now that I think about it.  Here it is:

I don’t know if Antibes is an older town than JLP, but it certainly feels older:

Ex-Drummer Knob and I had dinner here — not at this exact restaurant, but two doors down, and the meal with wine came to just around $30 each.  Other out-of-season prices are also reasonable, more so than across the Cap:

Five euros for a glass of squeezed OJ is one-fifth the cost of the same in Juan-les-Pins…

Also, in Antibes you don’t get sunsets because it faces to the east.  Of course, that means beautiful sunrises:

I have to stop doing these posts, because they are making the old feet start to twitch uncontrollably… or maybe that’s just the onset of Parky’s.

Which would make it all the more imperative to get over there soon.

Open Contempt

And the Feds wonder why we gun owners prefer to buy guns from each other, rather than through an FFL?

BECAUSE THEY DO SHIT LIKE THIS.

According to the ATF’s own rules as laid out in documents provided to AmmoLand news by Gun Owners of America (GOA) through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request, IOIs are only allowed to photocopy ATF 4473 or other documents to log violations. Those copies must be treated as “evidence.” The ATF’s own rules strictly prohibit the mass copying of 4473 forms or any other documents. In the video, the ATF employee can be seen photographing the entire A&D logbook instead of just the relative sections. The surrendering of documents is also supposed to be voluntary by the FFL.

Motherfuckers.

Helping The Fibbies

It wouldn’t surprise me, after over two decades of expressing the opinions that I hold, that I appear on one or more FBI lists of “potential” domestic terrorists.

On the other hand, they’ve also been proven to be utterly fucking incompetent.  So to help matters along, and in view of their criteria for the above, allow me to post the following:

5 U.S. Code § 3331 – Oath of office

An individual, except the President, elected or appointed to an office of honor or profit in the civil service or uniformed services, shall take the following oath: “I, ___ , do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” This section does not affect other oaths required by law.

Also:

At Ruby Ridge, Vicki Weaver was murdered by Lon Horiuchi, a federal agent.

Why I Own A Gun

Then there are my posts about guns… but really, just follow this link to get an idea — although this post in particular is quite representative.

And when it comes to gun pics… oh hell, let me offer up just one example:

Finally, for any FBI stalker:

…and: 

 

I trust that all this will help.

For the FIBBIES:  I am not a domestic terrorist.  The only way I’d ever become one is if you were to turn me into one.

As J.D. Tucille once wrote:

“If cops continue to play at being an army of occupation, they should expect the subjects to play their role in return. Vive la résistance.”

Yes.

Over And Over And Over Again

When murderers go a-murdering:

At the age of 14, Harvey tried to rape an eight-year-old girl. At 24, in 1963, he tried to commit rape again, and succeeded in committing murder: He shot his girlfriend “point blank in their crowded Manhattan apartment, chased her as she staggered through the kitchen and living room, and shot her twice more before she collapsed.” Harvey was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison, but released 20 years later, when he was in his 40’s.
Two years later, in 1985, he killed another girlfriend by stabbing her 30 times. After another three decades behind bars, Harvey was once again released, after which he sought “placement in city shelters” in the Bronx.
Soon, Harvey returned to violence, killing Susan Leyden, and then chopping up and discarding her body parts.

And he’s not unusual:

There are many examples of killers murdering people yet again after being paroled. One example is Kenneth McDuff, the “broomstick killer.” At the age of 19, after being paroled, McDuff and an accomplice kidnapped three teenagers. He shot and killed two boys, then killed a girl after raping her and torturing her with burns and a broomstick. Later, after being paroled yet again, he murdered additional women — as many as 15 women in several different states.
Some murderers continue to kill even at an advanced age. At the age of 76, Albert Flick killed a woman, stabbing her at least 11 times while her twin sons watched. He had previously been imprisoned from 1979 to 2004 for killing his wife by stabbing her 14 times in front of her daughter.

Just from the three murderers mentioned in the article, hanging each one after their first victim would have saved nearly twenty more victims later on.

Moving from the anecdotal to the factual:

Harvey’s return to crime after being released is not unusual for offenders, according to a recent report by the U.S. Sentencing Commission. On February 10, it issued a 116-page report titled “Recidivism of Federal Violent Offenders Released in 2010.” Over an eight-year period, violent offenders returned to crime at a 63.8% rate. The median time to rearrest was 16 months for these violent offenders. So, most violent offenders released from prison committed more crimes. Even among those offenders over age 60, 25.1% of violent offenders were rearrested for committing new crimes.

Hang ’em high, all of them.
