Animal’s Hump Day News

Funny how markets on various items are affected in crises, like the Kung Flu and the ongoing rioting and looting by AntiProfa fascists.  Gun sales have gone through the roof, and ammo is not to be found, unless you’re shooting 9mm Largo or some such oddball caliber.

Model 12 Black Diamond

Still – the kind of stuff I like, for example pre-64 Model 12 Winchesters and Belgian Browning Auto-5s, are still available on the various online auction sites.  Prices on these fine old guns don’t seem to have gone up – in fact, if anything, they’ve gone down a little, maybe because the various panics have everyone trying to get hold of Tacticool stuff.  If you’re looking for a gun that will actually appreciate in value, this might be the time to look at some older collectibles.  This needn’t rule out something effective for home defense, either; an old slam-fire Winchester 97 or Stevens 520A trench broom with a bayonet would be a hell of a thing in the event of a home invasion.

Damned effective, if you ask me.

Now then:

On To the Links!

Denver’s own Mike Rosen on BLM – and BLM.

This from last Sunday over at The Daley Gator:  Chris Wallace Should Know Better.  But, like many, he doesn’t.  And neither does Groper Joe.

Peaceful Protest I.

Peaceful Protest II.

Peaceful Protest III.

Peaceful Protest IV.

Not good news for Groper Joe – he’s going to have to come out of the basement.

In related news, Her Imperial Majesty Hillary I, Dowager Empress of Chappaqua, is advocating for open insurrection.

Now this is some world-class trolling.

Good shooting!

Flat Earth “Science” Wrong, Not Stupid?  Sorry, no, it’s both wrong and stupid.

Couldn’t happen to a more deserving guy, although honestly his sister/successor looks freaking scary.  Cold, dead eyes.  Of course, maybe it’s just a bad photo.  Look at your driver’s license photo – I look like a serial killer in mine.

A pool boy?  Seriously?  How much more cliched can you get?

Groper Joe needs to start answering questions.  You mean, like this?

This Week’s Idiots:

NY Magazine’s Frank Rich is an idiot.

What kind of idiot steals a cap from a seven-year-old?  These kinds of idiots.

Alyssa Milano (I know, low-hanging fruit) is an idiot.

Former ESPN writer Jemele Hill is an idiot.

And So:

We’ve had a bunch of summer wildfires here in Colorado in the last few weeks.  It’s not surprising, with all the beetle-killed trees primed to go up; but it has been bad enough to negatively affect air quality down here east of Denver.  Which takes me back to 1977 – remember the Midnight Special?  Here’s a relevant performance.  Enjoy.
