I’m 35 today and the USMC is 242!

35.. I guess my life is half over now. Or a third maybe… I dunno, but it’s a big chunk. Been a good ride so far and I expect great things in the next 35… except for my kids growing up. That’s gonna be a headache…especially with a daughter. :/

But I’m lucky in that I get to share my birthday with the USMC, I got a lot of grief over that when I was in, but its still pretty sweet. I adore the Marine Corps, it’s a cult – a glorious throat stomping, bayoneting, alpha–male dominated cult of awesomeness.

If you watch ‘A Few Good Men’ and you aren’t in the Marine Corps, you probably think that Tom Cruise is the Hero and Jack Nicholson is the Villain. For Marines, it’s the other way around. Jack Nicholson is our hero because he puts the spoiled brat lawyer in his place while defending the Corps unofficial Hazing Policy on Marines Who Suck.

Enlisting was one of the best decisions I ever made, I didn’t have any direction, discipline or drive after I graduated college. USMC fixed that real quick. You never forget standing on those yellow foot prints at Parris Island, with Drill Instructors screaming at you, and realizing you may have made a seriously poor life decision. Fast forward 13 weeks as you are handed the EGA (Eagle/Globe/Anchor), and you realize you’ve never been prouder of yourself or what you have become a part of. It’s done wonders for my ego. ūüôā

But it stays with you to the end of your days.

If you’ve never heard of Mike Mansfield, you’re missing out. He was an ambassador to Japan, the longest serving Majority Leader in the Senate, huge advocate for Civil rights, a Democrat, but he wasn’t afraid to bash his own party when they were wrong. Extremely accomplished guy. He’s not buried in Arlington in the ‘politician’ section, he’s buried with the common soldier and his grave marker says nothing but:

Michael J. Mansfield, PVT. U.S. Marine Corps

That’s how big a deal it is to be in the glorious Marine Corps. The lowest rank in the USMC, and his proudest accomplishment!

As for my birthday? It’s been great. I took a day off from work, hung out with my wife and toddler all morning. Then I went to the range and shot for a couple hours. My intention was to sight in a rifle for deer season, but I forgot to bring a screwdriver needed to adjust the rear sight. I’ve been told by my dad for decades to get a Swiss Army Knife – so it is time! At the last range trip, my wife’s Bersa Thunder had suddenly decided to start stove-pipping(where the shell casing gets stuck coming out of the pistol and sticking upwards), so I cleaned it up really well and took it out with me to try again. Still jamming on 4 rounds out of 10 on several types of ammo. Time to search the gun forums and figure out whats wrong.

Luckily, since my rifle and the wife’s gun wasn’t working, I had brought my old Ruger Mark II and was wearing my Glock 19 carry gun. I shot about about 500 rounds through the pair of them.

Good times were still had!

And I learned that the 30 round magazines for pistols are pretty fun. Since I don’t have a full auto Glock 18, I never saw the purpose. But today, I practiced multiple target acquisition drills on a pair of steel plate dueling trees – from the low ready. (Basically, I pointed my pistol at the ground, then swung up and popped a metal plate that swings from side to side. The ‘dueling trees’ have six plates, the objective is for two people to shoot them and the ‘winner’ shoots them all onto his opponents side while he tries to shoot them all on your side. ) Since the magazines I had were already loaded with Corbon PowRball defense ammo and I didn’t feel like unloading them –¬† I realized I had the 30 round magazine that came with the pistol in my range bag. The previous owner even put a +2 round plate on the bottom. Sweet. So I had 32 rounds between reloads. It looks ridiculous as all get out, but it was nice to save the reload time. And it gives your hands a heckuva workout, gripping it for 32 shots.


Speaking of good times, last week I did a Spartan Beast Race (12-15 miles with 30ish obstacles) with a buddy of mine to wrap up our second Trifecta. It was in Spartanburg SC, never been there before, really nice city! Way nicer than I expected. Still wouldn’t want to live there, population density is like 1,000x higher than what I want. But very nice. I knew some Marines that live down there, but didn’t have time to look them up. Sorry guys! I’ll be back next year!

Since it was just the two of us bach’ing it without our wives, we went super cheap when locking down a room online. It was like 55 bucks or something and was a smoking room. (We got upgraded to a non-smoking room upon check-in though.)

We \ran the race then went back to the hotel check in and shower off the caked mud and debris.

Yeah, it was a cheap hotel for reals. The kind you rent by the hour. Ever heard of RoadWay? Not I!

The microwaves laying scattered around the dumpsters should have been a warning. Or the fact that it was situated between a McDonalds, ABC store, Gas Station, and Burger King. (Everything a man needs for a good time with a hot date at the rent-an-hour motel!)

There was a mini-van on blocks in front of our room, next to it was a car with blankets over the windows. Some of the rooms had charcoal grills and lounge chairs outside of them from permanent hotel dwellers. Some Jabba-Hut looking woman in a McDonald’s shirt was sitting(laying?) down outside a room door on the phone and smoking.

But we are two big dudes who carry guns, so we weren’t about to leave.

The room next to us, was a family that consisted of a woman and a little boy and girl. They were running back and forth across the walkway, chasing each other when we showed up. We checked in, got some showers, and my buddy went downstairs to get some drinks from the vending machines. Which weren’t were the signs said they were, because they were moved closer to the office (I’m guessing so people would stop breaking in and stealing all the quarters) when he came back up, the little boy was yelling at his sister that she was fat. (“You FAT! REAL FAT!”)¬† They were like, 6 and 7 years old. Real charming!

The mother yelled a few choice things that I can’t repeat with words that certainly shouldn’t be said to people you like.

I ended up with the bed closest to the door, apparently because my buddy wanted me to soak up all the drive-by bullets.

But we felt reasonably safe, it seemed like the family next door lived here. So we figured the kids were our alarm system, if the mother runs out and grabs them, or if they drop to the ground and crawl into their room – we’ll know something bad is about to go down.

And besides, we had our guns and our white privilege to keep us safe.

Nothing happened to us, so maybe white privilege does exist(!) and that’s why? Or maybe it’s because we are big dudes with little hair, smoking cigars, and looking like we don’t mind brawling. We also wore hoodies outside because it was cold, so maybe they thought we were one of them? Enh, who knows. But good times in deed!

I edited this into the last post, but this picture is to great to not put in again. This is Spartan Race. It is muddy. That wall behind me? We had to go under it, in that thick stinky nasty muddy water. Stuff gets in all your crevices, a week later I’m still trying to get clean.





If you like this, if it entertains you, feel free to subscribe to the email notification to the right of the screen.¬† No one will have to know you feel the same way as me. You can be discrete. Or feel free to share it to your friends and family, and even those of the opposite political persuasion who may be offended. Heck ‚Äď SIGN THEM UP! (Christmas is coming up ‚Äď What a gift of joy!) Bwhahahaha‚Ķ. ūüôā BTW – From here on out, I plan on posting ONCE a week, unless it’s something important. Because I don’t like spamming people.


After weeks of build up to an Antifa-Apocalypse, with the threat of millions of communists, fascists, and anarchists expected to turn out to overthrow our elected President, we were so stoked. Hundreds of thousands of Americans spent the 4th of November hoping to go out and do some patriot stuff.

Across the nation they loving selected their favorite rifles and pistols, loaded magazines to full capacity, made sure their American flag was unfurled and flying in the breeze, strapped on holsters and magazine carriers, fueled up their vehicles, and prepared for the righteous slaughter that was to come…

But sadly, all the ANTIFA fascists stayed at home.

Probably because their mom wanted them to clean up their room in the basement.¬† Or they were grounded. Or they had a test on Monday at Liberal Loser University in ‘Communist Theory’ and ‘Underwater Sign Waving’.

The “Revolution” turned out to be a fizzle and some poor guys made a lot of wasted signs and wooden bats then looked rather stupid standing among piles of unused makeshift weapons.

For us it was like hunters spending weeks in anticipation, only to find out the season has been canceled because there wasn’t any game to hunt.

Thanks guys – there is nothing as miserable as unloading magazines when we should have been sweeping up fired casings and planting American flags in mounds of your unwashed and uneducated corpses.

Anyways, go wash your face masks, put another coating of lacquer on your shield, and spray paint another cardboard sign. I’m sure you cowards aren’t finished being obnoxious yet.

I hear you guys have another planned protest tomorrow on the anniversary of Trumps election. You plan on collectively screaming at the sky in an attempt to ‘rouse a sleeping giant’.


Good luck with that.

We will be waiting on your violent revolution, and this poster below from Hellhound Apparel shows what our response will be.


And final word of this post goes to legendary Lt. Col Jeff Cooper:

“Let us reflect upon the fact that a man who covers his face shows reason to be ashamed of what he is doing. A man who takes it upon himself to shed blood while concealing his identity is a revolting perversion of the warrior ethic. It has long been my conviction that a masked man with a gun is a target. I see no reason to change that view.”


(For the record – I was out of town running a Spartan Beast race, and I never figured it would amount to anything anyways. But I did have my Glock and a few extra magazines, and a couple thousand pounds of motor vehicle to keep me safe during the ‘mass protests’. I’m told that getting a ‘pretty dunk wall’ picture is a big deal, well this is as pretty as it gets with me…)



EDIT – A fellow Marine just had his first article posted at Appalachian Tactical Academy, on Hardening Your Castle. It’s a great article and from everything I hear, ATA is a fine place to get tactical training for the Citizen-Warrior. Read the article, do some upgrades, then go get training.

A traitor goes unpunished and walks free.

Because the judge said he had a sucky time with the Taliban… Big comfort to the families of the honorable men who died or were crippled for life searching for that little traitorous bastard Bergdahl who plead GUILTY.

Patton shows how cowards in uniforms should be handled.

His eternal shaming at the hands of veterans has just begun.  Gruntstyle put this shirt up within a couple hours of the news. T.A.P.S. is a good program, buy the shirt, spread the discontent, support a good cause.


Aww… you guys.

Today this site broke 1,000 visitors and over 1,600 views in about 5 months.


The majority were American, which makes sense as it’s my target audience, while the rest were scattered all over the world.

And strangely China is a distant second. Maybe it’s because the word ‘Communist’ is repeated with such disdain and contempt on here.

However, North Korea is noticeably absent… Challenge accepted!


But this is crazy.

Thank you for reading!

Where are our John Waynes of Hollywood?

Where are the REAL men?

What happened to the classy Hollywood leading men? Where men like John Wayne, James Stewart, Gregory Peck, Charlton Heston, and Ronald Reagan hailed from?

Men, who put their careers on hold to enlist during wartime.

Men, who acted like men.

Men, who stood for what was right and just and honorable. Men, who owned guns and understood the necessity of righteous violence.

Men, who treated women like the lovely and interesting creatures they are.

(This doesn’t apply to the ‘mad cow disease’ feminists, you are neither lovely nor interesting.)

Men who were willing to punch other men in the face and take a punch themselves.

The sort who upheld Christian morals and traditions and didn’t make a bunch of crummy remakes and sequels, then charge us $15 a ticket and another $15 for popcorn and soda only to use our money against us by playing politics and telling us we suck.

Was Hollywood perfect back then? Of course not. I’m sure it had some sleaze balls and morally bankrupt losers.

And they hold some responsibility, for not stomping out the evil as it popped up like a dark arcade room game of Whack-A-Mole.

Some did try harder and failed grander than others.

McCarthy tried to show the infiltration of Communist ideals and beliefs into Hollywood and failed. That collapsed. But we all see just how correct he was now.

After all, it had Jane Fonda and her ‘Small-c Communism”¬†and that wicked witch is STILL cherished¬†in Hollywood.

Cherished for hating America with every bit of undignified behavior she showed before the enemy when she posed with that Viet Cong Anti-aircraft gun that most likely had KILLED Americans.

Where is karma when you need it? Where is the giant anvil falling from the sky and squashing her like the Loony-Tune she is?

But the era of MEN who act like MEN in Hollywood is gone.

Now we live in a day and age, where the leading man of Hollywood, with his sixth wife, twentieth tabloid cover, socialistic ideals, sneer at us commoners.

So obviously, we can’t expect any of those sorry excuses of men¬†to actually step up and point out a well known sex predator who operated with almost zero repercussions for DECADES.


His driver came out and said that for years he dropped off women knowing what would happen to them, then picked them up crying and dumped them off somewhere else. He said he ‘felt bad’ about it.

Oh YOU felt bad about it¬†– Then why didn’t you DO SOMETHING you enabling and accessory to crime,¬†cowardly excuse of a man?


So many big actors and actresses are flocking to the media so fast you can’t keep track of them. Talking about how horrific Weinstien was and how it was ‘the¬†worst kept¬†secret in Hollywood’ – What’s all your excuses for not coming forward?

His victims have a good reason.

But what about you leading ‘men’?¬† The Brad Pitts, George Clooneys, Matt ‘Matt Damon’ Damons, and Ben Afflecks?

Was it fear for your career?

Is it? Is it FEAR?  Or is it that your desire for Fame, Wealth, Influence, and Power is stronger than speaking out?

You chose to be successful over doing the right thing.

Oh sure, I see lots of excuses. How people tried to bring it up and were told to ‘let it go’, ‘that’s just Harvey’, ‘don’t pursue this if you want to be successful’.

I guess doing the right thing means you stop as soon as it gets DIFFICULT.

I guess that’s why Weinstien was the second most thanked person in the last 1,400¬†Oscar acceptance speeches, right after Speilberg and four places ahead of GOD.

As usual, that shines the light on the problem. When God isn’t first, immorality reigns.

And without courage and faith, of course you lack the blueberries to do the right thing in the face of adversity.

And in Hollywood, where the godless immoral liberal elite – those who cry over¬†the eating of animals, lecture us on burning fossil fuels, sneer at us for worshipping God, proudly support the killing of the unborn, and deride us for voting against their selected Candidate… How could they do anything but capitulate to evil?

Because in THEIR eyes, THEY are the greater good while WE are the vile unenlightened evil that exists to be overcome.

We unwashed masses, in our archaic religion, with our¬†backward morals… we just aren’t smaRt like they is.

(I guess because we don’t eat Gwenyth Paltrow’s GOOP!)

And you.

You Pink Hat Wearing, Obscene Sign Waving, Foul Mouthed Feminist’s of ‘Women’s March 2017!’

You who were so quick to¬†march by the tens of thousands against the¬†Raping/Assaulting/Tyrant Trump while ignoring Hillary’s enabling of her husband’s assaults and transgressions by DESTROYING his victims.

But let’s not forget, CONSERVATIVE women weren’t allowed to be part of your march for “Transformative Social Change”. Because they aren’t Baby Killin’ enough for you and because the march wasn’t about Social Change, it was about your false hopes that you could create a #RESIST movement that would replace Trump with your pick.

And if it truly was, about ‘Transformative Social Change’ – Where is your march on Hollywood? Where is your movement to tear down the HOLLYWOOD sign as a representation of abuse and subjugation of women by a sexist, male dominated, chauvinistic, predatory industry for decades?¬† I thought liberals were all about tearing down any representation of ‘Injustice’?

Ah yes, Liberalism is Hypocrisy.

Speaking of which:

“Any woman who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their voice.”

-Michelle Obama

So I guess those women who voted for your husband over her during the Primaries of 2008…. voted against their ‘voice’?

What a hypocritical witch. Go fade into obscurity, please.

You want women to be empowered, but only if they do what you say, and vote how you want, and anyone who does the opposite is a GENDER TRATIOR.

That’s not empowerment, that’s enslavement.

But¬†let’s talk about Harvey and Hollywood…¬†Your¬†husband¬†as well as the Clinton’s took¬†maxed out¬†personal donations¬†from Harvey Weinstein, and he raised MILLIONS for you with his uppity fundraisers in New York and Hollywood.¬† You called him ‘A wonderful human being, a good friend’… Awwww.

Wait a minute.

Did you not know ‘The Worst Kept Secret in Hollywood’? -fake gasp-

You say you were shocked and appalled… But the four of you, Michelle/Barrack Obama and Hillary/Bill Clinton, you were all so IN with the Hollywood crowd and so close to him?¬†Did you not know?

Because SURELY with all your political and judicial power with the FBI/CIA/Dept of Justice/etc at your fingertips – YOU could have done something or subtly investigated if such a heinous human being was trying to schlub up with you?

Oh who am I even kidding?

I remember Obama’s excuse every single time some dark aspect of Democrats had a light shown upon it. “I found out about it on the news this morning.” Hillary’s Email Server, Fast and Furious, NSA spying on Foreign Leaders, Gen Petraeus Scandal, IRS targeting Conservatives, Justice Dept wiretapping Fox and AP reporters, or the VA ‘Waiting List’ scandal.

Convenient for you to be so stupid and ignorant when something controversial comes up. Either you were profoundly inept as a leader, or you were a rotten politician trying to get away with everything you could. Answer: Both.

So, of course¬†YOU (Clinton/Obama/Feminists)¬†aren’t really doing anything.

Because you won’t do squat against a bunch of rich, powerful, influential LIBERALS.

Because to you, pushing your agenda is more important than right or wrong.

Gee, it sure would suck if your party didn’t have the hundreds of millions from Hollywood flooding into the DNC’s warchests to help beat Conservatives. Or all these leftist Celebrities using their influence and power to back some lame socialist program or trying to convince people to vote your way.

The same Politicians who invite people like Jay Z/Ludacris/etc to the White House that supposedly care so much about women’s issues like birth control/abortion/assault/glass ceiling hoodoo-voodoo. (Guess you Feminist’s have never listened to any of¬†their lyrics huh? FALSE. Of course you have. You’re just justifying it because, again, Agenda > Morals).

And to show you once again, to put it plain and clearly, Liberalism is Hypocrisy because:

The same politicians who say that Conservatives are Waging a War on Women, are in fact FUNDED by an actual Industry that actually Abuses Women.

So the John Waynes, the moral beacons, the TRUE masculine figures who think, act, and speak like men, that we look up to, adore, and dream of being like when we grow up – they aren’t welcome in Hollywood because… you guess it.


Anyone who speaks out is destroyed. Tim Allen got sucker punched for speaking out in defense of Trump, and telling everyone that Hollywood is like 1930’s Germany for a conservative.

And I’m guessing the only reason Chris Pratt is still around is because he shocked you¬†with his back to back to back hits of Lego Movie, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Jurassic World.¬† He’s to big to push into the gutter right now.

I doubt with his pro-gun, pro-hunting, unpolitically-correct views, and pro-Christian stance he will be there for the long haul.

That’s okay – he’s too good for Hollywood.

But we need more of men like him.

And ultimately, our SOCIETY needs more men like him.

So do your part, RESIST the progressive emasculating agenda, read the below link, then raise yourself or your sons to be MEN.

No, Women aren’t Equal to Men.

Because as the saying goes, You can be a man or a liberal – but you can’t be both.





In other news, Trump has curb stomped ISIS into submission within¬†10 months. Showing what Testicular Fortitude, a ‘bomb the hell out of ISIS’ campaign promise,¬†and a ‘Mad Dog’ off his leash can accomplish once you remove spineless politicians and politics¬†from leading the military.

I posted this picture from 5.56 Productions on Facebook the day after Trump was elected.


I repeat it now for TRUTH.
