Default The Loopy Lupine Redux

Listed below are some of the thoughts, observations and comments I have made over the past few years. These are mine, you are welcome to comment, agree or disagree.



At this stage, life is kind of like a cat in the middle of a dog fight.
As long as I'm alive I'm winning.


I am ashamed of nothing I have done in my life. Dissatisfied, yes. Wishing I had done better, yes. Ashamed, no.

I am still wondering where my youth went, and if I can catch back up with it.

Pain in the mornings is my friend. It lets me know I'm still alive.

I don't read the obits any more, I'm afraid I might find my name there.


Remember, you're not paranoid if they really are out to get you.

I still think it would be easier to pump oil out of a radioactive environment than to put up with those clowns in the mid-east.


Others will follow.

Concealed carry is the wrong concept. To conceal is to hide, suggesting that the weapon is there for nefarious purposes. Open carry would be better for law abiding citizens. After a short time, most wouldn't even notice.


Sex is like a game of bridge, if you have a good hand you really don't need a partner.

Bitching is bitching, I don't care what language she uses.

I love to sit and watch the lightning play. Makes a tingle run up my leg, even.

If you push the big red 'emergency Only' button, don't be surprised at what happens.

120 smarts, but to really hurt, get sidewise with some 880 (electricity).

Any caliber is good in a gunfight, as long as it starts with .4

Marksmanship is hitting consistently(not perfectly) at the upper limits of your rifles range, not your own.

Cheddar cheese in coffee is pretty good.

If he ain't worth killing, he ain't worth worrying over.

Some folks just need killing.

Justice may be blind, but the law is sold to the highest bidder.

Some folks wrestle alligators, some folks just shoot them. Guess which ones have a higher life expectancy.

My day has been kind of like sex with a porcupine, just when things get interesting some little prick gets in the way.

Did you realize that sanders can , at least temporarily, totally remove your fingerprint?

Life is a joke, and you're the punchline.

Virginity is a curable condition.

There is a vast difference between ignorance and stupidity. Ignorance can be fixed by education and learning. Stupidity is curable only by massive trauma or death.

If you want safety, join a convent. If you want liberty, be prepared to fight to the death for it. The worst enemy of freedom is your own government.

The SS, KGB, and Homeland Security all have one thing in common. They were designed to protect the government from being harassed by bothersome people. Like the citizens of their own country.

Why, if some old perv on the streets feels a girl up it's a crime, but put him in an airport in uniform and it's a security check?

Military statisticians estimates it takes over a million rounds fired to kill one enemy. What ever happened to marksmanship and aiming?

Not every battle is worth fighting. Pick your hill to die on carefully, because unless you're really lucky, you probably will.

Gold is at best one of the most useless metals ever found by man. Yet, it has cost many their lives and more their sanity. Not really sure why, I've found a little and let folks have it just to watch them go bonkers over it.


I actually understand the Arabs, who have just pasted Islam over their clan and tribal affiliations. Which is why I despair of us ever winning this 'war on terror'. We are fighting it from the wrong viewpoint.

the difference between a slut and a whore, about 25.00 cheaper for the whore.

You take a girl to dinner, a movie or show, then dancing. If you're lucky, you might get laid after spending a 100 bucks. A trip to the local whorehouse is usually cheaper and at least you know you're gonna get laid.

A contract for sexual services is legal in the US. It's called a marriage license.

ON any specific skill,there are those who can, those who know how but don't, and then there are those who teach.


I have a lot of respect for elementary teachers. Just because they make it thru the day without killing the little b*stards.

I am a bibliophile, taking my book away is like bitch slapping a grizzly with a sore tooth.

I have reached the point where I honestly hope I die before my country does.

Are kids best roasted, fried or bbq'd?

Measure twice, cut once. and the dang thing is still a smidgen too long.

I have never figured out why 'good enough' is acceptable except for a temporary emergency fix. If you have the materials and time, do it right.

A lady should be told every day that she is beautiful, that she is loved, and that she is the light of your life. It really cuts down on the whining.

there is beauty in everything. The wind in the grass, the sun upon the dew, the strike of a snake, the barrel of a gun. But I have to admit I never looked hard enough to find the beauty down the barrel of a gun.

Good steel isn't made by being nice to the metal. It is made by the proper mix of material, that is heated in the forge and beaten into shape by the hammers. Character is the same.

I may disagree with what you say, but I and my buddies have spent our blood and tears to give you the right to say it, and would do it again.

If you can't handle alcohol, don't drink it. If you can't handle truth become a democrat.

If a dwarf is only mythology, what was that I just drop kicked?

There is a terrible glory in holding another's life in your hands. It is both the most intoxicating and frightening feeling there is. Doctors, soldiers and assassins know this.

It is better to die free than to live in servitude. I hope this is always the belief of my country.

I have found that if you answer the door naked, the Jehovah's Witnesses will quit coming by.

On the other hand, the lady next door keeps coming by to borrow a cup of sugar.

Take a cup of coffee, add sugar if desired.
Take 8-10 small cubes of sharp or ex sharp cheddar cheese and drop in the coffee.
Let sit a few minutes, till cheese becomes soft.
Eat the cheese and drink the coffee.
I like it, maybe others will too.

An ounce of prevention may be better than a pound of cure, but a microgram of avoidance is better still.

It's really screwed up when you think you're getting ahead just to find out all you've done is dig yourself deeper in the hole.

It is a strange fact that over time a man in good shape can travel farther than a man on a horse.

I should have been a dog, then I could lay around with my junk showing and nobody would care.

I get driven almost nuts because the women in my life keep wanting to dress me up. More than one good pair of overalls is a waste.

Good advise for walking in the woods, if it wiggles its not a stick. If it hisses or growls leave it alone, if it has teeth make sure you're out of range and have a non wiggling stick.

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He's doing 3 to 10 for unnatural acts with an elf.

Gun control is hitting your target on the first shot.

Peace is achieved by having two things, first, enough firepower to make others prefer to leave you alone, and, second, the willingness to use it at the drop of a hat.

It bothers me that people seem to have forgotten that liberty doesn't come with guarantees.

Why are all the things that are fun are either illegal, immoral, unhealthy, or fattening?

I never mind hard work, I can sit and watch it all day long.

Manual Labor is actually a terrorist from Mexico.

Most really good inventions don't come from genius, but from laziness. They are a way to do something better with less effort.

Kamikaze means "divine Wind".

Beauty is skin deep but ugly goes all the way to the bone.

The tire is only flat on the bottom.

Writs and restraining orders may keep the bad guys away, but I'm still convinced a double barreled 12 will make sure he never comes back.

I have a duty to defend what is mine from anyone. you have a duty to defend what is yours. I may assist you in defending yours, but I have no obligation to do so.

Laws(especially morality laws) are made by people to force others to conform to their point of view. I have never heard a person ask that a law be passed so that they won't go out and do something.

If you do the crime, be willing to do the time.

While I firmly believe that rape should carry a death penalty, what should be the penalty for a false claim of rape?

I believe it is usually better to have the law investigate crime and handle the criminals. They have more resources, and are much less likely than I am to just cap the perp in order to improve the gene pool.

I looked in my new thesaurus to define the term 'functional psychopath' it showed a picture of a woman and the letters PMS.

363 million on the mega millions. That's a lot of people that can't do math.

Someday each and every one of us will face our own personal Waterloo, or Alamo. I hope that I will be remembered as going down with my standard held high, facing into the odds that took me down. Whether a disease or in a blaze of gunfire, I hope I have the fortitude to die as I lived, trying to shield those I care for and spitting defiance to those I despise.

Of course. I also hope it's a long time down the road.

What the H*** happened to us?
We frickin put men on the moon.
We almost built a moonbase.
Then, somewhere, we turned chicken****.
We gave it all up.
Now, we have to hire somebody to take our astronauts to a rickety, piss poor excuse for a space station.
Whatever happened to an L-5 habitat?
To solar powersats?
To moving heavy industry to Luna and mining the asteroids?
To walking the red sands of Mars?
We have the science and technology to begin terraforming Venus.
We could have manned missions to Jupiter and Saturn.
To walk the frozen ammonias of Europa, to watch the oxygen rise from Martian sands, to float amongst Saturn's rings.
To build the mass driver's on the moon, to wrestle an asteroid into orbit, pouring out Iron, chromium, silver, gold, and other rare metals.
To ride down to steal from the molten pools of Mercury. to spread out from the nest and claim our heritage.
what happened to our hearts, Our courage, our willingness to dream?

To build a boat, or not to build a boat, that is the question.

Eastern cedar is probably one of the most beautiful woods there is. but it can be a real heartbreaker to make it come out right.

Yellow pine is probably the most common wood used today in the US. It is easy to work, forgiving of mistakes, and fairly cheap. But it just don't have no soul.

Is there anything more satisfying than taking a piece of steel and hammering and bending it into a tool and arguably, a work of art?

No trespassing means keep your a** off this property. No ifs, ands, or buts.

I used to roam all over the countryside with a .300 savage and a dog. Never bothered any domestic animals and never got harassed. Nowadays I'd be in jail or dead.

Remember, you only get one Alamo per lifetime, make sure it's one worth remembering.

In order to successfully stalk game you have to understand its habits. Where does it water, what does it eat, where does it bed, how does it travel and when? If you understand these your prey will come to you of its own accord and at the appointed time.

If you get close enough, you can smell a snake. If you get too close you'll get to feel it too.

The smell of spent gunpowder mixed with the morning dew is addictive.

So is diesel smoke.

Remember, a tank is a well armored rolling coffin. And they have lots of blind spots.

Any air dropped bomb is guaranteed 100% accurate. It will hit the surface every time.

An airplane in a combat zone is both a taunt and a bullseye.

Friendly fire ain't.

If a tank shoots in your direction it ain't friendly. It may not be the enemy, but it ain't friendly.

Tanks are only really well armored to the front. the sides, back, top and bottom carry much less weight of metal. So stay away from the front end.
