Mollbot beat me to it

One of the various blog posts I wanted to highlight was over at Random Nuclear Strikes, where they quote a lefty dipshit crowing about how Boston's ability to "lock down" the city somehow proves that us gun-toting right wingers could never possibly win any conflict with the Feds.  Mollbot pointed out the thought that was in my head:

And yet two incompetent jihadi wannabes shut down an entire US city for a day. That’s a fairly significant ROI for whatever nebulous organization they may or may not be a part of. They tied down tons of local LE and whatever other agency personnel got called up. And the younger brother wasn’t even FOUND… by a subject… er citizen… whatever… of Massachussetts until the lockdown was lifted.

 The unarmed sheep of Boston were on lockdown over TWO people.  TWO.  Two people who did not plan anything other than their initial attack.  Two people who, after their initial strike, essentially drove around PRACTICALLY WAITING TO BE FOUND, which still didn't happen until after they had ambushed and killed a cop after they robbed a store AND carjacked a guy AND told him that they were "The Bombers".

And the younger brother wasn't found until after the lockdown ENDED!

Holy Batshit, Batman! 

And this stupid fucking Leftist douchenozzle, Steve Marme, thinks that the Boston lockdown somehow proves that the "gun lunatics" have no chance against the almighty power of the state?  It's the complete opposite!  Give me one platoon of troops, with halfway decent training, and I could shut that city down for a month without even trying too hard.  Give me two platoons, and I could own that town.  Who's going to stop me?  The people of Boston?

THEY DON'T HAVE ANY GUNS.

The whole reason the lockdown was necessary in the first place is because the people of Boston, being unarmed sheep, have NO OTHER OPTION but to hunker down behind closed doors while two relatively untrained morons forced an entire city into trembling, pants-wetting fear.  Do you think anything like this would have happened in Dallas?  Or Oklahoma City?  Or Phoenix?

You know it wouldn't have.  Because those cities have armed citizens, not unarmed sheep.

Sitting here with a cigar

and a cuppa, trying to catch up on the news.  It's a bright day, and the dogs are running around in the back yard playing with each other.

Supposedly there's some sort of playoffs going on right now.  I don't know what the hell they're talking about - Hockey playoffs haven't started yet, baseball just started their season and football was over a while ago.  Is there some other sport out there I haven't heard of?  Maybe they're referring to the NFL draft.

Speaking of baseball - has anyone seen just how horrible my Mariners are this year?  This is how you know that I'm a true fan - no bandwagon rider would be rooting for the mariners for almost three decades like I have.  Gah.

For all you runners out there - I've been using a website called Map My Run for a while now.  It's free (with ads that pop up), and it lets me track my miles run and calories burned while allowing me to plot routes just about anywhere I go.  I don't think it's the most accurate site out there, but hey, it's free.

Have I mentioned how awesome the Mystic Monk Ethiopian Blend is?  I have?  Oh.  Good.

Anywho, that's my basic brain dump for this AM.  Should anything actually penetrate my brain before the caffeine kicks in, I'll let you know.

I'm back

Did the world end?  No?  Carry on then.

Light blogging notice

Going on a mission.  I'll be blogging from my tablet, but I can't type very well on that thing.  We'll see how much I feel like posting.

Homebrew update

Bottled three gallons of apple cider last night.  I had used an English Cider yeast, and it came out quite a bit different than my last batch.  The Ragin' Mrs. compares it to a Riesling.  It's dry, and has a more complex flavor than just apple.  I used a raw apple cider to start, so it's not just apple-flavored sugar water.  I primed it and bottled it, set it in a nice dark spot and now I'm going to wait for two weeks before I crack one open and see how it finished.

Next weekend, the lavender mead and Rodamel get bottled.  The Mrs. is already doing her happy dance.

Found a New Blog

Or actually, Borepatch found a new blog, and that led BabyTrollBlog to find a new blog, which led me to find a new blog.

Follow all that?  Good.

Lurking Rhythmically.

Is good.

Is going in sidebar after I get back from doing what I gotta do.
