Editor’s Note: Although we vet every story that crosses our desk, once in a while one sneaks past us. This is one of those that did. Evidently this is not the same person as the young man who was shot in Ferguson, Missouri. A big Hat Tip to my friend, 5e, at Spellchek for finding this video of the now infamous “Gentle Giant”, Michael Brown. . . . .
5-Year-Old With A Fatal Form Of Muscular Dystrophy Gets Wish, “Hired” By Indianapolis Fire Department
Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. They just made this little boy’s day. Too bad stories like this one won’t be covered by the MSM. Click photo for video. Warning: Have a tissue handy. Via RTV 6 A 5-year-old Indianapolis boy with a fatal form of muscular dystrophy learned Thursday that he would get his Christmas wish. Jordan McLinn spent Wednesday “interviewing” at Indianapolis Fire Department Station 13 for a position as a firefighter – his dream job. Jordan submitted a resume stating that he was an ideal candidate because, “I am strong. I love God. I love helping people. I am super smart.” […]
Rifle pictured is not an M-14 Why does a New Jersey game warden need an M-14? The M-14 is an assault rifle capable of firing hundreds of rounds per minute. New Jersey’s Division of Fish and Wildlife, whose conservation officers enforce the state’s wildlife laws and regulations, now has 16 of the military rifles — all acquired from the Department of Defense. Because, shut up. “This is a fully engaged police agency that patrols more than 800,000 acres in all 21 counties, plus our waterways, and faces a wide-ranging variety of policing issues,” said DEP spokesman Larry Ragonese. “There are […]
Hat/Tip to USAToday. Better look out at that next Senior Center Moonlight Dance. You cut in on the wrong person and you might find yourself having to deal with a powerlifter… Most grandmothers, especially those reaching 80 years of age, can be counted on for cozy hugs, surprise gifts, and gray hair. So you may be surprised when you meet Willie Murphy, a 77-year-old grandmother who can do one-handed push-ups and deadlift 215 pounds. The 105-pound senior started with 5-pound weights a few years ago, after seeing a sign about a weight-lifting competition at her local YMCA. She asked a […]
Hat/Tip to John Quiñones, Host of ABC’s What Would You Do? John Quiñones hosts a very interesting show on ABC. It is called “What Would You Do?” and it uses actors and hidden cameras to record unsuspecting Americans’ reactions to provocative situations. One such episode concerns what patrons at a grocery store might do if a person using Food Stamps didn’t have enough to finish the purchase. Watch and see what I call the “True American Spirit” of helping others, even if they’re strangers. . . . . .
Hat/Tip to Katie Pavlich at TownHall.com. The Liberal Gun Control Lobby reminds me of that inflatable clown that lets kids knock it down forever, while it just keeps comin’ back up again. I mean they get a gun ban passed in DC in the late ’70s, and then later Chicago follows suit in the early ’80s. Finally, the Supreme Court steps in and puts an end to all that nonsense, so it’s over. Right? Wrong. In very typical Lib/Progressive fashion, they have found a way, although I don’t see a long future for their “solution” around the law and still […]
VS Hat/Tip to Truth Revolt. The FBI released a report on homicide statistics and it was covered by NBC. No wait, it was ABC. Um, nope. It wasn’t them, either. Oh yeah! CBS? The New York Times? And you won’t see this report covered by any of the MSM, either. It just doesn’t fit their narrative. According to the FBI statistics on murder victims for 2013, the number of gun-related homicides reached a five-year low, dropping eight percent since 2009. The FBI reports that roughly two-thirds of the 12,253 people murdered in America in 2013 died by firearms. The total, […]
Hat/Tip to Christian Datoc at The Daily Caller. We’ve all seen the signs in some windows of short-sighted businesses. The words “Gun Free Zone” proclaimed in big, bold letters like that’s a good thing. Well here are nine great examples of exactly why “Gun Free Zones” suck, muchly. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Locked And Loaded: Thank God These ‘Good Guys’ Packed Heat [VIDEO] By Christian Datoc On Oct. 28, 71-year-old Ronnie Lummus was walking back to his car after buying groceries with his wife, when they were confronted by an armed masked man, WFAA 8 Dallas reports.
