    DHS has no idea what creek they’re up and that pistols make bad paddles.

    “Beat it, Pops.”
    Isn’t that one from the 100 “Idiotic Last Words” collection?

    Uhm, that stuff they just stepped in? Is not manure and won’t wash off but I guess they will find out the hard way won’t they?

    Jesus, Mary and Joseph, they don’t have any idea who they’re about to tangle with! Or, as Bugs Bunny used to say: “He don’t know me very well, do he?”.

    I’m reminded of this scene from *The Sacketts*/Part 1, 1:33:00-1:36:49,

    • January 20, 2015 at 10:56 pm

      Perfect scene…. Killin don’t mix well with a man’s supper.

      Much appreciate the link – am going to enjoy sharing it with a few other like minded amigos at work tomorrow. Sure as hell beats hearing James Taylor warble a few notes about having a friend.

        No problem, Doc, glad you liked it. Another memory comes from page 27 of *Lonely on the Mountain* where Tell says…*Many a man thinks large of himself because he doesn’t know the company he’s in. No matter how good a man can get at anything, there’s always a time when somebody comes along who’s better.*

    I’m pretty sure Wade will deal with them in a different fashion, but the 3 S’s _really_ do appeal to me when dealing with those arrogant JBTs.

  • January 20, 2015 at 1:35 am

    Teehee, them boys just done screwed up. Popcorn! Where’s the popcorn!?!

  • January 20, 2015 at 1:55 am

    I almost feel sorry for them.

    The Road Runner, Tweety Bird, and Bugs Bunny NEVER started the fight (At least when Chuck Jones was doing them) BUT when someone else started it – LOOK OUT BELOW!

    “The campus felt smaller and the students looked so young. Reciprocal, I guess. I was coming out of the malt shop across from Administration when two Letter sweaters came in, shoving me aside. The second said, ‘Watch it, Dad!’.

    I let him live.”

    Ya think these .gov douchebags would have learned last time they tangled with Sam & Zed.
    And now Wade is in the mix?
    Whoo boy……

      The stripped bodies will, of course, “disappear”. No more walking back to their office in their underoos (how long ago was that?).
      The radios, guns and ammo will be kept at the ranch (deeply hidden).
      All the rest of the gear, clothes, and the unlocked car (with keys in the ignition & plates removed), will be left in the seedy side of the downtown of the nearest-biggish-city. The illegal aliens and other undesirables will dispose and disperse with the evidence within 24 hours.

      “Seen these agents?”
      “Nope. They were never here.”

      • January 20, 2015 at 8:46 pm

        Timing and deniability could be difficult, they are in their car, which implies power for a car-based data link.

        If you were DHS, fearful for your safety after events like the Cliven Bundy standoff, wouldn’t you have your car-cam video and audio streaming real-time back to the server at the local office, along with your current GPS position? That way your fellow JBGTs could come and rescue/avenge you.

        For that matter this is Texas … If the Feds are on a raid to capture/kill two dangerous illegal aliens (that would be Naomi and Anatoly, what is their visa status anyway?) at the ranch where established troublemakers like Zed and Sam live, wouldn’t they have told the military that they had reliable information from informants about child abuse, illegal firearms, and operation of a meth lab, so they could bypass the Posse Comitatus Act and get helicopters, Bradleys, CEVs, and a couple of Abrams? Is Lon Horiuchi still on the job? Deja vu?

        All depends on whether Chris has a short plot arc planned or something longer and darker, I suppose.

    Our society is about the safest in world history, believe it or not. And one of the great drawbacks to that very safety is that it is possible for someone to reach maturity without learning that stupidity is inherently an anti-survival trait.

    As a result, they often manage to reproduce before being taught that very important lesson.

    Never did find out if Wade was a wheelie kind of guy or a single /double stack
    man. Oh well. I guess we will find out.

  • January 20, 2015 at 8:32 am

    Sure would love to see the Gestapo wannabes in the real world ‘enjoy’ the reaction / results likely to ensue in this fictional one.

    Oh GOODY!

    Time for a slightly crazed from pregnancy ex-Isralei sniper to go to work……

    Paleeeeeezzzzzeeeee Chris?

    You don’t have to kill them, a quick Vasectomy administered by a 7.62X51 will do.

    We miss Naomi.

  • January 20, 2015 at 9:49 am

    Estamos salvados (We are saved). Is that what you were trying to say?

  • January 20, 2015 at 10:03 am

    Good job Chris, return visits tomorrow will be an effective 100%.

    Wonder if Wade will channel his inner Chris Kyle?

    You don’t tug on Superman’s cape……
    You don’t spit, into the wind………..
    You don’t pull, the mask, off the Ol’ Lone Ranger, and………

    This time, Zed’s goin’ huntin’, license or no.

  • January 20, 2015 at 11:47 am

    Zed has a different perspective on the third frame. Literally – through the crosshairs of his Nightforce 2.5-10.

  • January 20, 2015 at 1:03 pm

    While I doubt that Chris would have Wade actually kill fedgov agents -and would be disappointed if he did- I am looking forward to tomorrow’s piece, which like someone else said, is likely to have a very strong um, *hit* count.

    “Beat it, pops.”

    I think Jeff Goldbloom’s line about bad ideas in “Jurassic Park 2” would apply here. In case some of you have forgotten it, I’m saying that the Feds saying that to Wade might very well qualify as “the worst idea in the long, sad history of bad ideas”.

  • January 20, 2015 at 6:53 pm

    I say dart them, strip em down to their birthday suits, stake them out near a fire ant hill, douse them with honey and trail it back.
