I am a neolibertarian minded individual who feels that freedom and individual rights take precedence over the wants of government. I believe government exists to serve the people and not to protect us from ourselves. I am an advocate for private firearms ownership, smaller government, reduced taxes and freedom to live your life however you choose, providing you do not directly hurt others.

A Feast For Crows
This latest installment of Gearge R. R. Martin's "A Song of Fire and Ice" series isn't quite as gripping as the previous books but is still a pretty good read.

Book 10 in the Sword of Truth series continues to keep the reader riveted while repeatedly emphasizing the duty and importance of self defense.

Woman Successfully Repels Armed Robbers with Shoe

According to, a Kansas City women successfully repelled multiple armed intruders by beating them with her shoe:

The 60-year-old woman had just pulled into her garage and pushed the button to close her garage door when two masked men stopped the door and burst in.

They pointed guns at her, she told KCTV5 News, and demanded money, so she reached for the only thing she could find - her shoe - and smacked one of the men in the face.

The combined beating with the shoe and honking of her horn to call attention to the situation apparently was enough to drive the men away. While this is a great example of how people with courage and determination can stand against crime, there is also another lesson to be learned from this. The woman was assailed by people who must have been lingering just outside of her garage when she was parking. Had she scanned the area before hitting the remote to open the garage door, she probably would have noticed the two guys with masks. She could have then driven away rather than get cornered in the garage where she could be easily attacked. While I applaud this woman's courageous defense, it would have been safer for her had she been alert and avoided the situation before it developed.
