This the sad tale of the Washington State Pooper, a small lonely soul, who just did not have a good day.
The mainstream press is alive with the subject of guns. Guns and their owners are at the forefront of most of the news media in this country and I suppose in Europe too.
In a way I think it is kind of ironic, you see I would be willing to lay you eight to five, that hammers, pick-axes, and other hand held blunt instruments, injure, maim and kill more people in this country on a yearly basis than do guns.
I know some of you own guns, but this is something to think about … rational thinking seldom applies on a hot button subject like this. Recently in Mississippi they took a bus load of kids to the police station for throwing smores at each other, and then charged them with assault.
Handcuffed a kid to a railing for not wearing a belt to school and believe it or not, suspended a kindergartner for “just talking about a TOY gun.”
Overkill, pure and simple. When will the “sane people” come onboard and register in with some pure rational thinking on this matter? Public opinion seems at best a little bit off and media attention is at the point of just give them up, the world will be a better place.
And “if frogs had wings … well you know the rest.”
Even my wife, has breached the subject and was wanting a gun (not a good idea) and now is dead set on a stun gun or a taser. Which I find lacking, first it allows the predator in close and I don’t like that at all. Then there is the somewhat remote outside chance I could really irritate her … but we won’t go there, as I am determined that this is going to be a “serious piece.”
If you don’t have a gun, here’s a more humane way to wreck someone’s evil plans for you. Wasp Spray, available just about anywhere, added bonus, no permit required, open carry if you wish. Did you know this? I didn’t. I never really thought of it before. I guess I can get rid of the Louisville Slugger (baseball bat).
Give some serious consideration to … Wasp Spray
We heard of a lady who is a receptionist in a church in a high risk area was concerned about someone coming into the office on Monday to rob them when they were counting the collection. She asked the local police department about using pepper spray and they recommended to her that she get a can of wasp spray instead.
The wasp spray, they told her, can shoot up to twenty feet away and is a lot more accurate, while with the pepper spray, they have to get too close to you and could overpower you. The wasp spray temporarily blinds an attacker until they get to the hospital for an antidote. She keeps a can on her desk in the office and it doesn’t attract attention from people like a can of pepper spray would. She also keeps one nearby at home for home protection. Thought this was interesting and might be of use.
On the heels of a break in and beating that left an elderly woman in Toledo dead, self defense experts have a tip that could save your life. Val Glinka teaches self-defense to students at Sylvania Southview High School. For decades, he’s suggested putting a can of wasp and hornet spray near your door or bed.
Glinka says, “This is better than anything I can teach them.”
Glinka considers it inexpensive, easy to find, and more effective than mace or pepper spray. The cans typically shoot 20 to 30 feet; so if someone tries to break into your home, Glinka says “spray the culprit in the eyes”. It’s a tip he’s given to students for decades. It’s also one he wants everyone to hear. If you’re looking for protection, Glinka says look to the spray. “That’s going to give you a chance to call the police; maybe get out.” Maybe even save a life. Please share this with all the people who are precious to your life.
Did you also know that wasp spray will kill a snake? And a mouse! It will! Good to know, huh? If someone comes at you and you fear for your safety let them have it right in the face. They can work it out with the cops at the hospital later.
Now here is the other shoe hitting the floor. If you own a gun, put two or three rounds in ‘em, stick a hammer in their hand, and then call 911. Like Dr. Phil sez … That works for me.
Have a good weekend, you worked hard for it, enjoy.

Here you go, middle of the week, all the news that is fit to print or causes fits in print … you be the judge.
Higher Edumaycayshun …. Police in Milledgeville, GA arrest a 6-year-old girl for simple assault and property damage after knocking over a shelf in a school tantrum that injured the principal. What are our schools coming to … children are upset so we arrest them? Thank God that monster is off our streets
I got yo’ stuff see if you can finds me? …. Here is one from the stoooopid criminal files. A thief in Chicago was charged with stealing $17K worth of merchandise from a Radio Shack, including a GPS device that police used to locate him.
Honey there is something I neglected to tell you before we got married …. An Egyptian man who went online to watch a porno film for the first time got the shock of his life when he found that the woman in the film was his own wife. “I found 11 films showing my wife in indecent scenes with her lover … it was the first time I watched a porno film and I did this just out of curiosity,” Ramadan told Egyptian newspapers at his house in the northeastern province of Dakhalia.
Yeah, and I hear people just read Playboy for the articles.
Don’t forget the sunscreen … Just in time for summer, how to hit a nude beach and not stand out. Bonus articles too, including the best place to get naked, is there really such a place, c’mon? An added bonus on the same page … Your own cool Border Patrol ball-cap, only $2.99.
What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas … A new mobile medical unit is patrolling the streets of Las Vegas, providing intravenous fluids to people with wicked hangovers. With packages starting at $90. “Hangover Heaven” (catchy name eh?) treats patients with a proprietary blend of fluids, vitamins, and medications that the company claims can “drive the toxins out of your system and get you tuned up to enjoy your stay.”
The New Girl from south of the border … Nearly half of Brazilians are now overweight or obese, the government said this week. In the past five years, the proportion of people in the land of bikinis who are overweight has ballooned from 43% to over 49%. Now is the time for them to act to ensure we they reach the levels of countries like say … the U.S. where obese is getting to be the norm. You don’t believe that? Been to WalMart lately?
I am a sensentive person, no really, I really am … A convicted rapist prefers death over 20 years in prison, says he is “afraid of being raped in prison,: “I prefer death a thousand times over being raped,” said Galvan-Hernandez. A tiny man less than 5 feet in height, Galvan-Hernandez told the court he’d been sexually assaulted numerous times as a street youth in Mexico. “I want to pay for the act of cowardice,” he added. “I admit it, but I just don’t want to be raped.”
Oh stop please, you are breaking my heart! Let him serve out the full sentence in the general population and don’t give me this “cruel and unusual punishment” tripe.
When the poo-poo hits the whirly-dirly (When the **** hit the fan). Anyone here remember the Boz? Here is a hint: Poor Brian Bosworth when he played college ball for University of Oklahoma he was labeled a problem child and complained that no one understood him. He was a crappy linebacker (in the NFL, the Seattle Seahawks fans did not adore him either). He was a crappy actor. Then he was a crappy landlord, apparently. He is being sued over poop problems … time has a way of catching up with all of us I suppose.
Hopefully he’s not a crappy real estate worker now, too.
Let’s form a committee and pool our ignorance …. Here are some people who are really off to a bad start. The City of Jurupa Valley has only been city for 10 months now. The newly formed Planning Commission for the City of Jurupa Valley, CA. it seems is a bit dysfunctional.
The planning commission had a meeting last week to discuss building issues in the city. One of the issues being discussed was a low income apartment complex for Veterans to be built in the city. The apartment complex is planned by Mustang Affordable Homes LLC. Representatives of Mustang Affordable Homes LLC were answering questions that the planning commissioners were asking.
Planning Commissioner Don Porter asked Mustang Affordable Homes LLC representative how the applicants could be screened for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, (PTSD).
Okay Veterans here we go again.
Just because we might have PTSD, we are a hazard to the public or to the school children who will be walking by the apartment complex. I don’t know about you but I am tired of these ignorant people. I worked 30 years for the Santa Fe Railroad with my PTSD. (I have PTSD, the VA says so). I did not attack anyone because of my PTSD. I did not go CRAZY and shoot innocent people because of my PTSD. I have never harmed anyone or anything because of my PTSD.
Yet a Mr. Don Porter would want me screened for PTSD before I could move into a Veterans Apartment Complex? I am very upset over Don Porter’s question, insinuation or what ever you want to call it. I think every Veteran should be upset.
These planning commissioners were personally appointed by the Jurupa Valley City Council. In fact they were hand picked by the city council. I think everyone should send an e-mail to every member of the city council and tell them what you think. Then ask for the city council to remove Mr. Don Porter from the planning commission. We don’t need a person with this kind of mind set on any city’s committee.
This not only affects the Veterans of Jurupa Valley, CA. This affects every Veteran no matter where we live.
Below are the city council members e-mails. The very first e-mail is the mayor’s. Please, lets flood their mailboxes with e-mails telling them how disgusted we are with Mr. Don Porter.
You know there are times I wonder about things. Little things, big things, often on the very edge of reality, I wonder about stuff when I hear of something like this. It is getting to the point, that all you have to do in this country, is stick a shovel in the ground, anywhere, and something “ugly is going to come to light.” It just makes me wonder. This morning, I was wondering “how big the Petri dish might be” where this country grows all these civic do-gooders and misguided idiots. I bet it is a whopper.
Here is our Public Service Announcement for Wednesday April 18th, 2012. Please be advised The Byrd Spring Rod & Gun Club is sick and tired of receiving questions about the Club’s mascot dog who mauled: Six people wearing Obama tee shirts, four wearing Pelosi tee shirts, two Democrats, 3 Santorni supporters, nine teenagers with pants hanging past their butt cracks, three flag burners, and a Pakistani taxi driver.
FOR THE LAST TIME … THE DOG IS NOT FOR SALE!
See you at the water-cooler.
