Regarding the Planned Parenthood murders

The killings at Planned Parenthood are reprehensible. They are disgusting. All Americans should stand up in shock and revulsion and condemn this type of cold, calculated murder. This kind of slaughter has gone on in America long enough. These killings are all too frequent and speak to a deep sickness in our society. Now is the time for Americans to engage in deep introspection regarding the murders at Planned Parenthood.

In addition to the ongoing murders at Planned Parenthood, we must also condemn the actions of the alleged cop killer in Colorado Springs yesterday.


Friday Night at the Movies


Good evening everyone and welcome to the Black Friday edition of Friday Night at the Movies. Officially the 2015 Christmas Season is upon us but as it is still Thanksgiving weekend, a good cowboy movie does have its place here. I am still getting Thanksgiving weekend chores done so it can’t be Christmas yet. Besides that, I can’t find any good Christmas movies right now it seems.

Our movie tonight takes on the delicate subject of the use of deadly force by Law Enforcement Officers and it is a story that we are all quite familiar with.

Black Friday Sales Results are in

Market analysts say that Black Friday sales were a bust on the traditional retailer side.

Americans have opted for more practical items to spend their money on this Black Friday.

Early reports indicate that today was the biggest day for gun sales in U.S. History.

That’s not a fluke. Glock, Kimber and Smith and Wesson are selling more gift sets than Old Spice. All my life I’ve been wondering when the day would come when people start making smarter choices with their holiday spending. Now that the day has arrived it kind of makes me sad. It is what it is and we didn’t get here overnight. Fa la la la la, la la, la la.

Looks Like The DCM Will Be Selling Surplus 1911A1 Pistols To Civilians

I owned one of these, a Remington Rand built pistol, for a few years. It looked a lot like this pic. It was worn out and if you shook it it rattled. After owning it and shooting it I understood why GI’s considered them to be inaccurate. It also would not feed anything but ball ammunition.

I sold it about forty years ago. I’m afraid that gun established my position as a non-fan of the 1911 platform.

Since then I have owned several other 1911’s in one form or another, including a Gold Cup match gun that also would not feed hollow points. I have never owned one that was 100% reliable. I guess I gave up completely on them when I discovered polymer-framed guns. They would feed anything with complete reliability. And I could buy them for half of what an average 1911 would cost me.

Another thing I discovered was that the arched mainspring housing of the A1 version would sometimes prevent my meaty hand from fully depressing the grip safety. The flat housing did not so I determined that, for me, the A1 upgrade was actually a downgrade.

These surplus pistols will sell quickly. There are lots of people who like them and want one. I am not one of those people but this will be very good news to many. The only question left to ask is how much the DCM will charge you for one.


On Wednesday, 25 November, 2015, President Barack Hussein Obama signed the National Defense Authorization act.

He had vetoed the first version of the bill to reach his desk on 22 October, 2015, about a month ago.

In the latest version, S. 1356, there is a section, 1087, which re-authorizes the Civilian Marksmanship Program to sell surplus 1911 and 1911A1 pistols and their parts and accessories to the public.

The sales are limited to 10,000 per year. There are about 100,000 of these pistols available that are surplus, so they should be available for several years.”

Thanksgiving Day Matinee

We Have Seen This Before…

… Even so It’s beautiful.


Time To Be Thankful

I know, today is American Thanksgiving. Actually, it was yesterday in some parts of the country… but I digress.

Giving thanks for one’s blessings should not happen only once a year. With all the political and economic stuff that we see every day it’s sometimes difficult to remember that we still live in the freest, fairest, land and that we all have far more opportunity to succeed in whatever endeavor we choose – even if we choose to move out into the wilderness and become a hermit. If that is your desire you can do it in the United States. That’s not true in almost all other countries.

We, here in the 22 household, are truly and thoroughly blessed. Interestingly enough, it does not come naturally to anyone. Living a life one can be thankful for takes attention and positive action. You have to want it and you have to work to make it happen. There are a few things, like health, that we have no control over. Mostly, though, it is up to you to bring yourself and your family to where you really want to be.

I guess I am just rambling but it’s important for someone to point out that true bliss is usually not possible. But you can decide how you want your life to be and it’s up to no one but you to ensure that you get there.

Young people and old, nowadays, are frequently told that happiness is the newest electronic gadget or a new pair of shoes. They are nice but that satisfaction usually goes away very shortly after your new acquisition makes it home with you.

Be someone you can be proud of. Be someone your spouse can be proud of. Make someone’s day. It doesn’t cost a thing. Give thanks for your true blessings and strive to make tomorrow even better.

Give thanks every day.


Happy Thanksgiving: 1987

I saw this movie back in 1987 with my older brother; “Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.” It was just he and I. No parents. We went together on Thanksgiving Day. It was the first time that I can recall that we stopped being typical bickering brothers, and actually started forming a relationship….a friendship. I was 14. He was 18 and just out of high school. We drove to the matinee’ in his “Lead Sled”, which was a 1964 Chevy Impala, (he still has it to this day, and boy does it still look like shit….but I would honestly be saddened if he no longer had it). I thought it was a cool ride, especially when mom and dad weren’t in the car with us. I could say the “S” word as much as I wanted.

This movie was a bonding experience for my brother and I, at least in my eyes. As trivial that day may have been to my brother, it was a day I will always remember. It was a good day, and I give Thanks for it. I could go on in detail, but I want to keep that memory just for me. It only seems like 28 years ago….

Happy Thanksgiving Big Brother!

It’s this scene that gets me every time.


Happy Thanksgiving from the Real Revo

Give thanks, enjoy friends and family, drive safely and remember to punch a few holes in the foil over the turkey compartment. You know, like Squanto taught the Pilgrims to do on that first Thanksgiving.



American Conservatives Need To Learn This Technique

Yamamoto Allegedly Said, “You Can’t Invade The United States…

… There’s a rifle behind every blade of grass.” That might be true but here is a little video about training. It’s an ad for the training program but it’s very effective. It’s short and worth a watch. I love that they are doing the training in inclement weather. Who’da thought of that?

They say it’s a multi-day course and they praise the people for learning a lot between day one and day two but… You tell me.

We definitely need more of this sort of thing!

Here is a nice, pre-holiday, feel-good story for you.

A recent suicide bombing in southern Syria shows the rivalry between Al Qaeda and ISIS is more than just a contest to see who can kill the most infidels — the groups are using classic terror techniques on each other.

The Nov. 15 bombing came at a top-level meeting of the Yarmouk Martyrs Brigade, a key ISIS militia known for its bloody and vicious hold over parts of the Golan Heights. Six of the group’s top men were killed, including Muhammad “Abu Ali” al-Baridi, the shadowy head of the group who went by the nickname “The Uncle.”

Al Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate, quickly took credit, gloating on Twitter about the “heroic” attack.

Obama is right! The pending climate conference is really putting the pressure on them.

Turn Your Volume Down Before Watching This



Let’s check in at the Scandi paradise

In Sweden, the self proclaimed “moral superpower”, things are a bit messy.

A tranquil Swedish village has been torn apart by bitter tensions after the arrival of 20 refugee families, MailOnline can reveal.

Tärnsjö, 150km north of Stockholm, has become a hotbed of resentment where migrant children as young as five need a police escort to get to school.

Residents and newcomers have exchanged insults, thrown rocks and set fire to cars, leaving many on both sides scared to leave the safety of their homes.
In the last few months, with 10,000 asylum seekers arriving a week, the country has reintroduced border controls and the anti-immigrant Sweden Democrats has become the second largest party in Sweden, opinion polls show.

Instead Tärnsjö, a relatively small village with a population of 1,200, is a snapshot of those places where bubbling anger has spilled over into violence and arson.

I guess the folks of Tärnsjö aren’t feeling culturally enriched by the diversity fairy, huh? Nobody tell Bernie Sanders. He is just sure that Scandinavia is the Big Rock Candy Mountains.

The Law Of Unintended Consequences

I would have backed off. Instead he turned toward the animal. Must have been a Hillary supporter.


How to Make War


Franz Joseph I, the emperor of Austria-Hungary, didn’t much care for his nephew, the heir presumptive to the Austro-Hungarian throne. The Archduke Franz Ferdinand was next in line for the crown after Franz Joseph’s only son had committed suicide. The emperor disliked Franz Ferdinand for several reasons but primarily because he had taken a non-royal wife. The emperor would have preferred that Franz Ferdinand’s younger cousin, Charles I, be the heir apparent, but rules were rules and the Hapsburgs were dedicated to their rules.

While attending a ball in Prague in 1894, Franz Ferdinand met Countess Sophie Chotek. Sophie was a countess but that wasn’t good enough to marry into the Imperial House of Habsburg. Despite his objection, the emperor allowed the marriage and Franz Ferdinand married his love. That meant, however, that marriage would be morganatic and that the children born of the marriage would not have succession rights to the throne. Sophie could never be empress. For the rest of her days, Sophie was snubbed and ignored by the House of Hapsburg.

On June 28, 1914, Franz Ferdinand and Sophie were in Sarajevo to inspect royal troops. Members of the Bosnian Serb Black Hand Society, including, Gavrilo Princip, were also there. They planned to kill the archduke and, somehow, free Bosnia from Austrian rule.

They were, however, inept as assassins. When Ferdinand’s open top car passed the first assassin, he threw an improvised grenade at the archduke’s car. He missed his aim, the grenade bounced off of the car and rolled into the crowd gathered and detonated. Several people were wounded. The archduke’s driver sped away denying the other assassins their shot at a clean kill.

After Ferdinand and Sophie arrived at their destination, the archduke decided he would visit the hospital where those wounded by the errant grenade were being treated. They returned to the car and their driver started out for the hospital.

On the way, the diver turned down a road that was blocked. He put the car in reverse and began slowly backing down the street to find and alternate route. Inside a nearby coffee shop, a stunned Gavrilo Princip – who had given up any hope of an assassination that day – looked up and saw what fate had brought before him. Princip snatched his pistol from his pocket, ran into the street, jumped on the running board of the car and shot Ferdinand and Sophie at point-blank range. Their wounds were fatal.

The word was quickly sent back to Vienna and the wheels of history began grinding. The July Crisis began. In Vienna, the Council of Joint Ministers debated Austria-Hungary’s course of action. Truth be told, the emperor was relieved. With the irritating Franz Ferdinand out of the way, his favorite nephew was the new heir apparent. The emperor directed his staff to deal with the assassination, sent a stand-in to attend the funeral in his place, and returned to his holiday in the Alps that was already underway.

When he returned to Vienna, the emperor learned that his ministers had prepared a harsh set of ten demands for Serbia. The emperor felt that they were overly aggressive, but agreed to the terms and the demands were sent to Belgrade. Serbia accepted all but one of the terms and, as stated would happen, Austria-Hungary declared war on Serbia.

Now the chain reaction began: In response to Vienna’s declaration of war on Serbia, Russia declared war on Austria-Hungary. Germany came to the defense of her ally in Vienna by declaring war on Russia. Bound by treaty of mutual defense with Russia, France and Great Britain declared war on Germany. Italy, seeing an opportunity to claim borderlands in the Alps, declared war on Austria-Hungary. In August of 1914, the bloodbath began.

During the course of the war, the United States and Japan were also dragged in. At the end of the fighting in 1918, the Austro-Hungarian Empire had ceased to exist, its emperor in exile. The Russian Empire had ceased to exist, its royal family executed. The German Empire had ceased to exist, the Kaiser in exile. Italy, Germany and Japan were soon to become fascist states. The Great War, the war to end all wars, had set the table for the next and even more terrible serving: World War II.

World War II ended the lives of 100 million and cast all of eastern Europe into a dictatorial darkness that didn’t end until 1989 and 1990. The events associated with a wrong turn, a car in reverse, an assassin in the right place at the right time and the death of an archduke that nobody really cared about started in motion a chain of events that killed untold millions and changed history forever.

Remember this comedy of errors and misjudgment as you contemplate Russians, Turks, Syrians, NATO, ISIS and the United States operating in the Levant. It is easy to cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war. It is very, very difficult, however, collar them once they are running free.


This business will get out of control…

Turks shoot down a Russian jet. Turkmen forces on the ground in Syria shoot the pilots dead as they descend under parachutes. Russian search and rescue helicopter downed by US backed rebel forces. The dogs of war are slipping free.

A Russian rescue helicopter has been shot down by Syrian rebels while searching for pilots missing after Turkey downed a Russian jet.

The helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing in a government-held area in Syria’s Latakia province.

A Syrian insurgent group, which uses U.S. Tow missiles, said its fighters hit the helicopter with an anti-tank missile.

Video footage has emerged online appearing to show the helicopter after it crashed in dense woodland.

Plumes of smoke can be seen coming from the aircraft.

Vladmir Putin earlier warned Turkey of “significant consequences” after the Russian plane was shot down.

You are on the list? No guns for you!


In the US, people on the government’s terrorist watch list can own and possess weapons.

People on the U.S. government’s terrorist watch list can walk into a gun store and legally buy pistols and powerful military-style rifles.

More than 2,043 people supposedly under surveillance legally bought firearms between 2004 and 2014, according to a March analysis by the Government Accountability Office.

The FBI is notified when someone from the watch list buys a firearm or explosive, and agents often use that information to step up surveillance on terror suspects.

Under current federal law, however, association with a terrorist organization doesn’t prohibit a person from possessing firearms or explosives.

In the wake of last week’s Paris attacks, Diane Feinstein has reintroduced a bill that would make it illegal for anyone on the terrorist watch list to possess guns.

Trump is on board with Feinstein and her bill’s co-sponsors. Here is Trump in response to a question on the topic from George Stephanopoulos on ABC’s This Week. . . .

If we have an enemy of state, I don’t want to give him anything. I want to have him in jail, that’s what I want. I want to have him in jail. But if those people in Paris had guns in that room, it would have been a shootout and very few people would have been hurt by comparison to the number that were hurt . . .

If somebody is on a watch list and an enemy of state and we know it’s an enemy of state. I would keep them away, absolutely.

Sounds reasonable. Still, here are some questions to yourself…

How does one get on the terrorist watch list? How do you know if you are on the list? If there is no trial or court action, who decides that you are on the list? If their is no judicial action, how do you appeal the inclusion of your name on the list? Is it possible to have your name removed? Would it be costly or time consuming to be removed from the list? Would you be forced to prove your innocence to be removed?

Here is the real question: If some future Lois Lerner deep in the bowels of the federal bureaucracy decides to put you and your entire Tea Party organization on the watch list thus denying you your Second Amendment rights, is there anything you can do about it?

Until these questions are satisfactorily answered, Feinstein’s bill should be a non-starter.


Is Donald a spoiler?

And has that been the goal all along? The Donald has been a Democrat for most of his adult life. Supporting them.. the Clintons especially.

Well .. Let’s be more honest. Donald has been out for Donald his whole life. It just so happens that backing Democrats has made him the most money.

So.. That out of the way.. And with the Recent spate of articles claiming that Donald is considering a 3rd party run.. Is it possible that this was the plan all along?

The Media certainly loves the reality show ratings and has given him millions in free press. His attacks and the majority of his campaigning has occurred in free media space. Now. I am an optimist to a fault.. But am becoming more and more of a political cynic. And I could see that this has been a possibility all along. To get a candidate in.. to say the right things. To front the ideals and red meat to fire up the electorate.. Knowing that the GOP would never support him.. To purposely run as an independent claiming irreconcilable differences, then split the vote and guarantee Hillary a win. For which he will be rewarded handsomely.

So.. Is this political espionage and the making of decent fiction? Or is it hitting close to the truth?


Clock Boy is an old fashioned extortionist


Stage a fake injury then threaten to sue. It’s the oldest scam on the books.

Give us $15 million – or else.

That’s the demand from the family of the world’s most famous clockmaker, Ahmed Mohamed, to the City of Irving and Irving ISD. The city and district were each sent letters on Monday demanding money or else a lawsuit would be filed.

The family wants $10 million from the City of Irving and $5 million from Irving ISD for damages it claims Ahmed and the family suffered after the teen was arrested. The family also wants an apology from the two entities.

Yeah, it is exactly like this….
