« Weiner's Wife Is The Real Story | Main | CounterIntuitive Man says...Of course TV is addictive! »


It's getting increasingly hard to write Page Nine in the traditional format -- because all the news stories are the same -- same topics, same errors, same slant... how many times and ways can I say that "insurgents" are really radical jihadi muslims bent on destroying western civilization? Every tax plan is reported from the side of people who get the money, not the people who have it taken from them. Science stories that don't support global whining, sustainability, destructive nature of man, evolution, the big bang, or that do support the lumber industry, industrial achievement, capitalism -- don't appear. I'll do what I can to use the familiar format, but the times they are a changin'.


Catch me on Armed American Radio -- July 3

I'll break away from the family BBQ for an appearance on Mark Walters' top rated show; nationwide, and here in my home town -- 960-AM KKNT Intelligent Conservative Talk Radio, 5 - 5:30 p.m. (2 - 2:30 East coast). Find a station near you and tune in --

Journalist David Codrea now has his own radio show -- Scottsdale-based radio station KBSZ 1260's new program, The War on Guns: Notes from the Resistance, debuted on June 13 in the 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. slot. I'll have a segment on June 29th at 7:30 a.m.

Jihad Blues

My guitar blues on YouTube has generated another response from a crazed somebody:

God is Allah. The Qoran is the Final revelation of God. And with the Qoran God created the beasts of the field and he has promised you his dreadful day. Have fun with scoffing, your lifes are like a shadow. Ask yourself a question, is God/Allah with Drunkerds, Harlots and gay people, a society who exist out of unmarried, unlawfel people, who consume alcohol, sell ther bodies, and behave as canibals. You must have made God so angry, that he allowed Jihadist to become like they are. The day of the Lord wil come like the clouds come.

Listen to the song that prompted the comments --

If you prefer spoken word, here's a speech I gave at a doctor's convention --

Walter Mitty's Second Amendment

It's been years since I've read this, but it hasn't lost any of its power. This is one dangerous piece of writing. It might change your entire perspective. Is the large-scale gun ownership we enjoy in America part of a larger grand plan to keep us asleep and enslaved?

Black Boxes

Are you worried about Big Brother tracking you? Don't worry, it's no longer a paranoid delusion -- cars are being routinely fitted with black boxes for all sorts of "good" reasons, like your safety, recovering stolen property, turning cars off while they're running to catch crooks, and perhaps less "good" reasons too, like taxing you for gas used, adjusting insurance rates and tracking your whereabouts with excruciating precision, non-stop. EDRs - electronic data recorders. Why would an honest person even care?  In a few years, a vehicle without a black box will stand out will arouse attention of the watchers...

Jihadi #2

According to  Associated Press reports, Ayman al-Zawahiri, the world's number two jihadi (after bin laden, now deceased) is believed to be operating somewhere on or near the lawless tribal rugged mountainous border of Afghanistan and Pakistan. In layman's terms, this means he is living in a large, walled, luxury condo in a big city, with a full supply of good porno, chocolate and Coca-Cola, like his former boss.

The Collapse

I have a meeting idea for you.

The private Economics Discussion Group recently met for dinner at the University Club in Phoenix to consider the effects of a calamity on our personal finances, safety and society in general. Although we decided the chances of a catastrophe are probably low, the group clearly felt that some level of forethought and preparedness would be wise (which ranged from some extra water, cash, candles and canned goods -- to a remote bunker).

I had the honor of designing and leading the discussion, which turned out to be very energetic, and I would be glad to run a similar program for your group if you think there might be interest. Since then I have delivered the program to a number of prominent groups, all with excellent results. This is the summary that went out in the monthly meeting announcement:

Pundits everywhere seem to be warning of a coming collapse in America --
financial, social, government, civil unrest, immigration, jihad --
is there any chance they're correct?

What exactly do people mean by a collapse?

We will examine and discuss the possibilities,
without going too deeply into dystopian science fiction.

Most important: What will you wish you had done before the collapse,
that you can no longer do afterwards? In other words,
are there prudent steps to take now, that could ease pain later,
and help you come out ahead, knowing that some people always benefit from strife.

This will be a moderated participatory discussion, not a lecture.

What I want to know is, if any of that's true, and we can't prevent it,
what can I do now that I'll wish I had done once it's too late.

Please get in touch if you'd like to pursue this.
It is a fascinating and engaging conversation
that holds everyone's attention and leaves people talking.

If you can't figure out how to get in touch with me and make arrangements, well, don't.



The Jihad song is great! If you don't want to promote it yourself, send it to Ray Stevens to add to his collection of great fun stuff.
