6-8 INCHES OF SNOW!!! crap, this morning it became "Oh, the storm moved further south than our models predicted..." maybe 2" by tonight; enough that the roads are fairly bad but that's it. Of course, the people further south who were told to expect, oh, 2-4" are kind of screwed.
Update: MAYBE an inch of snow here; with just enough freezing rain to turn the streets and anything else flat into surfaces with the traction of wet, buttered glass. I tried to take a walk, and after the second meeting of pavement decided that wasn't a good idea.
So, it being that I'm here instead of with the people I had planned to see, I'm browsing over the web.
Remember the NY Journal News deciding to make an interactive map of people with handgun licenses? It was decided that Publisher Janet Hasson and reporter Dwight Worley should find that sauce for the goose, etc.
And let's not forget a bit on Publisher CynDee Royale.
FWIW also notes that the school where lots of important people who show disdain for armed guards in schools send their kids has a friggin' infantry squad guarding the place.
And that's NOT including the Secret Service there for Obama's kids.
Gee, I wonder if our noble Attorney General and the DoJ he runs will consider a openly-published assassination list worth investigating, seeing as it's from a left-wing enviroweenie group?
The apparent motto at CNN: Twist words and tell lies, even as you're being corrected.
The Daily Mail takes not of the sales of magazines for EBRs; it'd be nice if they could
A: Get their facts straight, and
B: Not infuse the story with Eville Assault crap.
A slight hitch for Cuomo's confiscation-by-another-name plan: his broke-ass state can't afford it.
Poor little elitist bastards: they're afraid if they just order confiscations they'll get their ass handed to them in court for seizing private property without compensation, but they can't afford the compensation. And if they try to short it, they're back to the courts.
Which I don't consider that much of a safeguard with these people: Nagin and New Orleans were ordered multiple times to return guns they seized, and how many are still rusting in barrels? How many just 'disappeared'? How hard did the bastards make it to even try to get your property back? I don't doubt that if Cuomo thought he could get away with it he'd do the same: order confiscation and then seize as many as possible and then- at the least- make it as long, hard and expensive as possible for people to even try to get them back, all the while dragging things out in courts.
And, by the way, ever notice that a lot of the people causing "We must ban something!" demands wouldn't have been able to do bad things if they'd been locked up like they should have been?
Spengler was convicted of manslaughter in 1981 for beating his 92-year-old grandmother to death with a hammer, according to New York State Department of Corrections records. After prison [16 years] he spent eight years on parole.
Jones was convicted in 2009 of the high-profile, brutal beating death of
‘the Tuba Man,’ a beloved Seattle street musician. Because he was 16 at
the time, he served less than 36 weeks in juvenile detention.
Used to have actors like Charles Durning:
He was among the first wave of U.S. soldiers to land at Normandy
during the D-Day invasion and the only member of his Army unit to
survive. He killed several Germans and was wounded in the leg. Later he
was bayoneted by a young German soldier whom he killed with a rock. He
was captured in the Battle of the Bulge and survived a massacre of
In later years, he refused to discuss the military service for which he was awarded the Silver Star and three Purple Hearts.
“Too many bad memories,” he told an interviewer in 1997. “I don’t want you to see me crying.”
Now we have "America is like a clumsy puppy' assholes like Johnny Depp and communist-lovers like Sean Penn.
So David Gregory & Co. were flatly told that it would break the law for them to show a 30-round mag, and they did it anyway.
Anybody believing the DC Police will actually do anything, you need help.
About that petition to deport Piers Morgan,
I wonder why the pitch for signing omits the strongest reason:
"pontificating, underinformed, supercilious twit, whose arrival here was
in violation of the legal prohibitions against importing foreign insect
There's that. Hell, even Professor Elemental apologizes for the clown(at about 2:45)
And that's it for now. I think, my fingers having thawed from shoveling the walk, I'll do something that requires more dexterity than typing.
