All in the Family featured the curmudgeonly Archie Bunker. Archie was television’s most famous grouch, blunt, blustering, straightforward and untouched by the PC crowd. He was the archetype of the conservative male. Michael desprately tried to reeducate him, but he persisted in his breviloquence.

Looking back at the last 40 years, we realize: ARCHIE WAS RIGHT!


If You're Going to Drink...

Have the good sense not to break into somebody else's apartment. This is especially true if the apartment is owned by a chick who thinks she is the karate kid.

I can't help but feel sorry for the guy.  It must be awful to have to tell your cell mates you got your butt kicked by a girl.  At least with your face shoved in the pillow they won't have to see you cry.

As for the chick, well I think we can gain some insights.
  1. Chicks fighting guys works best when,
    1. the guy is drunk
    2. not expecting anything is going to happen
    3. in the bathroom
    4. doesn't fight back
  2. This girl wasn't really afraid, or justified in what she did
    1. the "intruder" was in the bathroom.
    2. the "intruder" told her he was in his own apartment.
    3. after investigating and citing him, the cops let him go
  3. This is a case of "girl power" meets "kung fu" gone amuck.
While I believe a person has the absolute right to protect their own home, you do have to exercise some common sense.  Like, somebody is in the house, call cops, wait.  Clearing a house with your black belt and a couple of tournament wins would have been a disaster if instead of an unsespecting drunk in the bathroom, you were met with a different scenerio.  Had drunk guy in the bathroom been more menecing, say meth-head needing $40 for a fix, or rapist who is into beefy chicks or a real home invader, I can see this turning out much worse for chick with black belt and no sense.


  1. Yes, she was very lucky, and she thinks she was GI Jane.

    Next time she gets into it with a guy, things might not turn out so good. Plus think of the dumb girls who will try the same thing, and not have it turn out so good.

    A unknown threat should NEVER be treated the way she delt with the situation. I've done some (not enough) CQB house drills and what she did was nuts.

    Only a yellow belt and less than a year in karate.

    Emasculated news anchor: "Anytime I'm going down a dark alley, I want Janine with me."

    Thank you public news.
