I’m a 61 year old lifetime shooter and gun owner, I have a concealed weapons permit, I held a Federal Firearms (dealers) License for years, I owned a gun store at one time, and I was a firearms instructor at the U.S Military Academy during my Army days. So I’m a gun guy. Let’s put […]

Although he did not have a lot of formal education, my father was a well-read man who knew an awful lot about many things and could converse well on just about any subject. But he was also a product of his environment and his times, and more than a little bit opinionated. A good example […]

We’ve all seen the same television commercials over and over ad nauseum where we are shown photos of dirty, starving kids in some third world country while the narrator drones on and on about how your small donation of just a few cents a day could change little Maria or Juan’s life.

With all of the name calling and finger pointing going on in Washington, it’s hard to know who to blame for the mess we’re in.

All of the bickering about shutting down the government has politicians and everyday citizens pointing fingers and passing the blame around, depending on who they claim allegiance to. But what you have to understand is that it is not a Democrat or a Republican problem. It’s a party problem. And as long as we have […]

Here are some random thoughts from the mind of Bad Nick on a rainy, gloomy Sunday afternoon. Proof That Guns Aren’t The Problem I’ve always told anti-gun folks to give me 24 hours and I can prove once and for all that guns are not the problem when it comes to crime. Don’t believe me? […]

Maybe it’s just me, but did you ever notice that quite often, those who complain about something the loudest are the worst offenders?

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. That being said, we sure have a bunch of total wackos in Washington.
