So 'ultra-realistic' Nerf guns are a threat to the mental health of the children...
At that point Monckton asked him to acknowledge that the science was nowhere nearly as clear cut as he had proclaimed. The official refused to do so, asserted “I have work to do,” and walked off.
Josh had been filming the entire exchange, but now an aide put a hand over the camera lens. When I remarked that just walking off was bad manners, the aide said “You are not worth debating.” I replied, “All he had to do was answer two simple questions.” I was amazed when the aide responded, “He is the Secretary General of the World Meteorological Organisation. He does not have to answer your questions.” The aide then walked off just as rudely as his boss had.
What, you expected Annointed Ones of AGW to answer questions from peasants? Really.[/sarcasm]
Make no mistake: These bills aren't simply unconstitutional, they are anticonstitutional. They would allow for the wholesale elimination of entire websites, domain names, and chunks of the DNS (the underlying structure of the whole Internet), based on nothing more than the "good faith" assertion by a single party that the website is infringing on a copyright of the complainant. The accused doesn't even have to be aware that the complaint has been made.
Yeah, I want to see it
Hey, that's Watson as Bilbo!
When Sara got an offer to go watch the Houston Texans play the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, she jumped at the opportunity. She knew her husband would have loved to have gone to Reliant Stadium to watch his beloved team play. Plus, she and Landon had never been to a game before.
... the team brought Sara to the game under the pretense that she and her son would be part of a halftime ceremony in which Landon would receive a bike and Scott's memory would be celebrated by the 71,500 in attendance. Both those things happened, but a much bigger surprise awaited.
The team told Sara she and Landon would be receiving a custom-built, mortgage-free house in a Houston suburb. It's courtesy Operation Finally Home, an organization that builds houses for wounded and disabled veterans or their widowed families.
Damn. That's excellent.
Ah, the wonderful people of the Brady Campaign; lying by, ah, 'leaving out' some inconvenient information... just the kind of thing we've come to expect of them.
Speaking of these bigots, yeah, it must have been painful to write it:
Brady Campaign Amicus Brief, DC v Heller, 2008:
I. In holding that the Second Amendment protectsBrady Campaign Amicus Brief Embody v Ward, 2011:
ownership of handguns for private purposes such as
hunting and self-defense, the lower court read out of
the Amendment its first thirteen words, thus violating
the fundamental rule that the Constitution must be interpreted
to give meaning to all of its words.... etc.
Because assault weapons, unlike handguns, are not widely used for defensive purposes, and because such weapons pose particularly acute public safety concerns, restrictions on their possession and use do not offend the Second Amendment.I have the image of a Gollum-like "AHHHHHHHH! It BURNS!!!" as they typed it.
Also, speaking of gun bigots, some commentary on their arguments(which often seem primarily to be insults and bullcrap)
My, the Sheriff seems to have upset the feds a bit.
And that's it for the morning.
