The Four Letters of Self-Defense

In the video the four D's of self defense gun fights are explained. When confronting the bad guy:
Divide his focus.
Disrupt his plan.
Disable his body.
Destroy his will to fight. [More]
I have a similar strategy that also uses four letters, FUHU, with the last three words being:

Up
His
Universe.

No one sane wants a fight, but if one is forced on you, remember:
CUM ULLA SELLA IN PUGNO TABERNA
And it ain't over 'til you say it's over.

Yes, I Know

I've been in touch with Stewart. He's looking into it.

We're the Only Ones Absolved Enough

Police Raid Wrong Home, Scare Elderly Couple [More]
And naturally:
They left a copy of the warrant, but he absolved himself of any responsibility for the raid or the damage," he told the Tribune.
Interesting word choice there...

We're the Only Ones Losing It Enough

The police officer at a South Carolina high school has been suspended after he lost his gun at school. [More]
I like how they're offering "amnesty" for whoever turns it in.

Opposite Day Redux

The "Authorized Journalists" can endorse NRA-"A"-rated Sharron Angle, but the NRA can't.

Even though she's so close their nod could put her over the top. They won't.

Opposite Day

[T]here is "significant evidence that some security contractors even work against our own coalition forces, creating the very threat that they are hired to combat." [More]
Imagine that!

Intruder Alert

Sorry, but if an intruder is in my home at 3:30 a.m., I have no way of knowing his intent and am under no obligation to give him a chance to carry it out. [Read]

Looks like another case of opening his yap because he thinks if only he can explain his side of things, the authorities will understand...

That's simply amazing!

Somebody call Stan Lee!
