There was an awards show for music videos the other night, it seems. And one celebritute got pissed at another and was rather loud about it. And Salon, apparently thinking its chops as a good leftist "We're one of the sensitive ones!" site would protect it, used what's apparently ANOTHER word that now has racist meaning, and is now running and hiding because the other leftists crapped their keyboards in outrage.
It appears, when they're not home-making machine guns and shotgun revolvers, the Brazilians will modify anything else at hand.
An opinion on the tactical reload.
He doesn't like it.
But c’mon, people. We’re dealing with reality here. Where are the
Kleenex boxes, the alarm clocks, the bottles of ibuprofen, the glasses
of water, the heaps of books, the midnight snack foods? Where are the
bedside pistol or shotgun, the dog’s blankie and toys, the fuzzy

Bayou Renaissance Man on some of the problems with/about LE; read it. Here's a taste:
Answer me this: how are we supposed to have any respect at all for law enforcement officers (or their agencies) who engage in these shenanigans?
I suspect this is a major part of the problem with certain elements of
society who resent, distrust and fear law enforcement. Some are just
plain criminal, and deserve no consideration. Others . . . no, others
have a real problem. They've been treated so badly, for so long, that they've lost sight of the fact that the law is there for a reason.
They see it - and those who enforce it - as more of a burden, more of a
threat, than a blessing to society. In time, they come to see peace
officers as active enemies . . . and they respond accordingly.
