It’s election season again. This is the time where the issues are the most hotly contested. People make their arguments on both sides, some factual, others not so factual. I tend to be of the belief that almost all issues have valid points on both sides. There are very few where I have seen all […]Read more "Arguing With an Anti-Gunner"
During the most recent Democratic debate, Senator Bernie Sanders (I, VT) said something rather startling: If somebody is loading guns and ammunition into a house, I think it’s a good idea to call 911. Do it. You can see the video of that exchange for yourself here. Now, the question was talking about racial profiling. I’ve scoured the internet […]Read more "Why Bernie Sanders is Wrong For Advocating Swatting"
The prototypical modern man (henceforth referred to simply as “the modern man”) is a descendent of the polymath, the renaissance man. He strives for excellence in multiple areas that interest him.Read more "15 Attributes of the Modern Man: A Rebuttal"
I had the pleasure of writing this article with Chris Hernandez, internet-famous for his hard-hitting article that told “social justice warriors” to fuck their trauma. Chris is a former Marine, a longtime police officer, and a proud serving member of the Texas National Guard, with deployment experience in both Iraq and Afghanistan. You can view his website here and […]Read more "We’re Not “Minorities.” We’re Veterans. We’re Americans."
I just came back from watching Straight Outta Compton. I loved it. I missed out on the golden era of gangsta rap growing up. My parents went out of their way to keep it out of my hands. My first exposure was 2Pac’s posthumously released single, Changes, and soon thereafter, I caught onto the everlasting rap bromance that is […]Read more "OPINION: Straight Outta Compton and Anti-Police Sentiment"
I named this article as neutrally as possible to try and encourage people to read the article the whole way through this time. The last time I talked about why the concept of white history month was silly, those who read the article all the way to the end saw the point I was getting […]Read more "Rebuttal to White History Month Criticism"
This piece is going to be short on sources and me just speaking candidly to promote my opinion. That’s partially because the bulk of it isn’t really a factual debate, per se, and partially because I need to get back to editing The Sovereigns. One of the major criticism I see from white people vis a […]Read more "White History Month: An Opinion Piece"
This past week, I did an interview with IJReview’s Justen Charters regarding the Southern Cross. My full feelings on the topic did not make it into the article, as is wont to happen when you deal with the press. To Justen’s credit, the edits were for brevity and were not made by him. I still intended on […]Read more "The Southern Cross: A Block of Instruction"
This post was originally published on 4 August 2014 on The Arms Guide. The written part of this TAC-TIP will be brief, as there is an accompanying video with it (shown above). I felt that since I took over a year to bring this to The Arms Guide, I should do something a little different. […]Read more "TAC-TIP: Proper Handgun Draw Part 2"
This post was originally published on 11 April 2013 on The Arms Guide. In my last post, I talked about how practice makes proficient. One of the major points I brought up is that while it may get expensive to frequent the range often, it’s important to maintain proficiency with your weapon. The weapon is […]Read more "TAC-TIP: Proper Handgun Draw Part 1"
