“The National Shooting Sports Foundation estimates there are roughly 5 million to 10 million AR-15 rifles owned in the United States. And, a small share of the roughly 300 million firearms owned by Americans.”

They call him, a lot of things – but, often “Half Court,” not only because he isn’t playing with a full deck – the guy is hilarious.
Fact: He gave his “unequivocal support” to good-old-boy Roy Moore of Alabama. Oh, boy!
Court Sykes recently moved to Missouri to unseat the well-loved and outspoken Sen. Claire McCaskill (D)
He announced he running for office and has strong views on Women.
In his perfect Half Court World ( he is single)
All women should:
Get up and make breakfast for all the family.
Making sure the husband was suitably attired for whatever job he did.
Getting the children ready for school, if at that age.
Cleaning and dusting the house, washing, making the beds, ironing and anything else.
Do the family food shopping –
Maybe have the neighbour round for a cup of Tea .
Collect the Children from School and feed them.
After that, getting ready for husband to come home by preparing his Supper.
Putting the children to bed.Take care of husbandly needs.
For some reason…Sykes’ background is a mystery. Or resembles Swiss Cheese
He claims to have served in the Navy for more than eight years, enlisting after the terror attacks on September 11, 2001.
His LinkedIn page says he later attended Harvard University’s Extension School after that, earning a degree in 2014.
He says he is a graduate student at the University of London, but waffles on that with flim flam flimsy excuses. He says he the Managing Director for a military consulting firm named Talosorion — but, candidly, has no clients.
He claims to have worked in close coordination and jointly with the FBI, DEA, CIA…. and other government agencies
Methinks this is a Jimmmy Kimmel joke- what say you?
There is an unspoken rule in my trendy neighborhood: your must arrive before 8:00am to score a table at Peet’s, Starbuck’s or the trendy, French bistro Pan Pain.
We have coffee shops galore in the’hood – but there is no where to sit after a certain hour. Everyone scoots into a table, inserts ear buds or Bose, plugs in their laptop and – in a very territorial way – starts clicking away. No lie, yesterday, I heard a woman answer her phone, “Law Offices.” Then she announced, he was “Not in” she offered to take a message.
This gives a new meaning to play on words: Nomad is an island…
After a dreadful night of non-sleep, I zombie-walked over to Peet’s- looking for the I.V. Hook Up of double lattes for a caffeine boost. The joint was full of “This is my office- Back Off” peeps. There was an Apple army of them- all in regulation vintage T-shirts, ripped jeans, and expensive shoes.
All I wanted was “My Coffee,” get very caffeinated and feel the barnicles of no sleep fall from my body.
There wasn’t a bench a chair, a stool, or single spot available. Now I could have wedged myself between two anti-social clickers madly attacking their keyboards – the cacaphony would have killed me.
So once again, late to the game, no room at the inn, I got my Super-cuppa-to-go and roamed the streets. C’est la guerre.

Do Not Despair.
The famous American philosopher, Jack Benny, embraced the secret to the aging process.
“Age is strictly a case of mind over matter. If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter.”
“Gags die, humor doesn’t.”
The famous “Stuck at 39” was a funny running gag that got started the year after Jack Benny celebrated his “first” 39 birthday on his radio show.
Take note, he said it was so much fun, he decided to do the same thing the following year. He said “There’s nothing funny about 40.” Mr.Benny, my idol, would celebrate his 39 birthday 41 times.
Cheer Up, Binkie – age is a many splintered thing.
