Anyway, to mark the occasion, I'll be putting up three "Year in Review" posts, highlighting one post from every month of the three years I've spent writing this blog, wondering if anyone was reading, and if anyone gave a shit about what I had to say.
What the ...?
So, I'm perusing the junk mail that's sitting on the coffee table the other day, and I find the latest Orvis catalog. I decide to flip through it, because the last I knew (and someone PLEASE correct me if I'm wrong), Orvis sold hunting and fishing clothes, or clothes that at least evoked the image of someone who might be inclined to go kill a furry critter or two.
The Mumbles Chronicles - continued
Again, PLEASE don't let this article from the Boston Globe destroy your faith in your elected officials. Was that sarcastic enough? I could turn it up a notch if need be.
The pride of Morrisey Boulevard
Why let annoying little things like facts and journalistic ethics get in your way when you're trying to bash the President, undermine the war on terror, and fuel the fires of anti-Americanism around the world, while pushing your liberal agenda with your newspaper? Ask the Boston Globe.
Granite State vs. Bay State
Here's a quick (yet a tad lengthy) comparison of The People's Republic of Massachusetts and the "Live Free or Die" state of New Hampshire. You tell me, which would you prefer?
More Mass. Mentality
Recently, in towns across Massachusetts and elsewhere, coyote sightings in residential neighborhoods are on the increase as more and more housing is being built, displacing them from their natural habitats. Now, in most normal parts of the country, the presence of a wild animal in one's yard wouldn't require a whole lot of thinking in order to remedy the situation.
Yes, MORE anti-gun BS
Here's a truly pathetic attempt by Globe columnist Steve Bailey to shift the blame for the recent surge in street violence from the criminals who are shooting people to the gun manufacturers, specifically Smith & Wesson. I wasn't planning on dissecting this in as much detail as I have, but these things just seem to write themselves sometimes.
As usual, the "Dead Horse Beating" warning applies.
Globe Bull Warning
Thomas Oliphant has a Boston Globe "web exclusive" column today making a truly pathetic last-minute argument for the renewal of the Assault Weapons ban scheduled to sunset on Monday after 10 years on the books. Nothing unusual really, just your typical misrepresentations of the facts and flawed reasoning we've come to expect from the proponents of nearly every piece of gun control legislation to come down the pike.
Mayor Still Clueless - News at 11
In the span of eight days, two women were abducted, blindfolded, beaten, and savagely raped in the gun-free utopia of Boston. All I can say is thank God these women had been disarmed by the liberal establishment in this town, else something bad might have happened to them - or their poor misunderstood victims-of-society rapists.
And, just because (for TC): It Wasn't a Dream
MA Gun Control Success Stories - vol. XVIII
Here's the scenario:
Guy wants to kill his ex-girlfriend.
Guy gets caught trying to bring a knife onto a plane en-route to do so.
Guy unable to buy gun - due to Massachusetts' onerous gun control laws.
YAY! Life saved. Problem solved, right?

A little post-election analysis from Natalie Jacobson's interview with The Great Orator of Readville:
How to Become a Felon in Five Months
If this article doesn't exemplify how completely fucked up Massachusetts' firearms laws are, nothing will.
Reality Disconnect - Aisle Six!
Here's the latest "progressive" crime-fighting initiative to emanate from the halls of the State House.
Stay tuned for my second "Year in Review" installment, March 2005 through February 2006. Get your horse-beating sticks ready. They just might come in handy.
