SAN GABRIEL, Calif.—Only two athletes in history have won medals in six consecutive Olympic Games.
Let me put this in perspective. There are about 13,000 Olympians, both summer, and winter, during each four-year cycle. Since 1896, when the modern Games began, there have been 184,869 Olympians. So we’re talking about something that happens .001 percent of the time, which is just one click above…never.
*** and ***
The other six-in-six Olympian is a woman from Southern California. She should have been asked to carry the flag at the closing ceremonies in Rio. I have nothing but respect for Simone Biles and her five medals in gymnastics, but this sixth medal in six Olympic Games was not only a once-in-a-century achievement, it was also accomplished by a 37-year-old woman who was fighting injuries, who was struggling against decades of sexism in her sport’s Olympic organization, who has to train by herself while raising a 3-year-old son, and who had to learn a whole new sport halfway through her medal run because the Olympics decided only men could compete in her preferred event.

The liberal media is so biased AGAINST guns that they have perverted their value to humanity.

We’re the weakest, hairless, and in some ways the stupidest animal in the food chain.
And, guns make us safe from the predators — both four legged and two legged.
(Some of the two legged ones are politicians and bureaucrats who kill us.)
So how do we change the current “thinking” — or lack there of — on self-defense and the RKBA?
