Don't delay, go today

"Michael Bloomberg: 'I Have Earned My Place in Heaven'".

I guess the Koch brothers are only partly evil

Democrats are fond of using the Koch brothers as whipping boys, but they're even fonder of taking their money. Even honest Harry Reid (Haw! I just love saying that).

Only if they both somehow managed to lose

“Why Hillary vs Jeb would be great for America”.

Caution: The linked article contains dangerous levels of unadulterated folderol and raw bovine excrement. But then , it is the Daily Beast, and the author, Mark McKinnon, is a virtual caricature of a RINO.

Dude. You can't cover up a head-tilt with a cowboy hat.

Assortment (things-that-slither-from-underneath-a-rock edition)

Baksheesh – Obama style.

My recollection is that we fought a revolution over one tax. Obama has proposed 442.

Vote for Democrats, get higher taxes. Californians rinse and repeat (and rinse and repeat and rinse and repeat, etc., etc.)

If the U.S. government ever dusts off the “axis of evil” designation for future use, it should include Pakistan the next time around.

If, as someone once wrote, the Democrats are a criminal conspiracy masquerading as a political party, then John Podesta is arguably its consigliere.

Meanwhile, brother Tony Podesta – another Beltway political gangster – deleverages his conjugal status.

The American Spectator wades through a deep pool of candidates for its Enemy of the Week selection.

Prosecutors in Wisconsin are learning what it’s like to be defendants.

“We can’t have, in America, people that violate the law and just walk away from it. So it’s not over", says honest Harry Reid.

2A rising

Here's an excellent summary of increasing resistance - in blue states - to government efforts to undermine the Second Amendment.

Monday movie

The scheming Conrad Veidt whispers evil advice into the ear of the young sultan in The Thief of Baghdad.

The season of Gorefrieren officially over

Spring has sprung here at the Paco Command Center, and the blossoming forsythia, hyacinths and wild plum trees seal the deal.

Ah, yes...spring. When a young man's fancy turns lightly to thoughts of...guns and ammo. Here's a little beauty I picked up the other day: a Smith & Wesson Model 58, from the Classics Collection.

This is the duty version of the more deluxe Model 57. During its regular production run from 1964 to 1977, it was marketed to police departments. Chambered in .41 magnum, the side arm never really caught on as a service revolver - partly due to the erratic availability of lower-charge cartridges in that caliber (the thing does pack a wallop) - but the .41 gained popularity with sport shooters and hunters. Today, guns in this caliber have a certain "cult" following, of which I am a proud member.

Incidentally, that thing sticking through the trigger guard to prop the gun up for the photo is a genuine limited edition Junior Johnson pocket knife, given by the great NASCAR legend (and moonshiner) to his former nemesis, Old Paco - in later years, when both had retired and buried the hatchet.
