I quit my satellite and cable some years back. I get Netflix, when it works, and watch British crime shows. The insanity of 'no guns allowed' is the most remarkable part of these shows. Police run after 'armed' criminals shouting 'stop in the name of the LAW'. The Law? The cops are shot and any number of citizens. The murderer, if caught, is threatened with 'up to 20 years in prison.' The horror of it all. Nobody but the lawless have guns and a 'locked door' is the panacia for protection. They police don't seem to have even handcuffs. Just grab the crook and tell them 'we going downtown'. I took an oath, when I was 18, to protect and defend the Constitution. There is no time limit to that oath.

Like most people, I’m a sucker for a heartwarming story around the holidays.

Sometimes, you get that nice feeling when good things happen to good people, like you find at the end of a classic movie like “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

But since I’m a bit of a curmudgeon, I also feel all warm and fuzzy when bad things happen to bad people.

That’s why I always smile when I read stories about taxpayers moving across borders, thus preventing greedy tax-hiking politicians from collecting more revenue.
