So I went to Gander Mt. today (on the way to the range) and, of course, I’m in the kilt. Today’s was the choco-Workman (kinda like this, but not black), thankyouverymuch.

While at Gander Mt., I noticed that they’re now stocking a large assortment of 5.11 Tacticool garments, so I browse the wares. While browsing, a small group of five mouth-breathers presumably on a shopping expedition from their hunting trip notice the kilt, encircle us about 20 ft away, and unleash with Teh Stoopid. There were lots of remarks in a short period, but one that stuck in my head was, “little faggot in a skirt”.

Uh-huh.

Little? Perhaps — I’m only 5′ 7″.

Faggot? Nope. I’m quite hetero, thanks.

Skirt? Well, it’s called a kilt. If I wore something under it, then it would be a skirt.

So, here’s the tip, lads: if you’re intent on picking a fight, perhaps you should exercise a bit more caution in your victim selection. You see, what you failed to realize is that while the “little faggot in a skirt” remained extremely calm but made eye contact with each of you and was very aware of exactly where each of you were standing and that each of you were openly armed with various knives, he was also very well-prepared to defend himself and his nearly adult-son from five very large, armed assailants:

50 rds each 45 & 9mm, 15 ft., Mozambique drills.

Update: Just had this little ditty bouncing around my head:

Home, home on the range
Where the nines and the 45s play

Eh… make it up as you go.

Evil

Acknowledge this fact: In life, evil will take many forms and, sometimes, it can be far closer and far more terrible than anyone can possibly imagine.

Prepare yourselves and your families in as many ways possible. Give your husbands, wives, sons, and daughters as many of the tools and resources — both real and mental — that they may need to combat the various evils they will encounter in their lives.

Wrong is Still Wrong…

My political views don’t change based upon the letter that follows the last name of whomever is sitting as the president. Wrong is still wrong:

From Jay’s site comes this tale of WTF about a professor whose free speech is being censored:

A professor has been censored twice, reported to the “threat assessment team,” and threatened with criminal charges because of satirical postings on his office door…

If you’re thinking, “But that can’t happen here” — that’s precisely why it is happening here.
