The judge who gave the injunction to prevent the Measure 755

vote being certified has extended her injunction for a week. And the CAIR clown is out whining that he's received mean and nasty e-mails from people(big surprise, huh?). Last line in the second link bothers me:
"I'm glad there are people who will stand up for others--will stand up for the culture of other people," added Mohammed.
Not 'stand up for the beliefs of' or 'religion of', 'for the culture of'. That bit of wording...

One of the ironic things about this? If there had been a measure saying "You can't consider the Bible or the Torah" in addition to or instead of state & federal law in trials, it'd be called unneeded, but that's about it; this measure says 'religious law, including sharia, or international or foreign law' and suddenly "This violates my freedom of religion!" and the Usual Suspects are all up in arms about racism(note: islam IS NOT A RACE, morons). Bullcrap.

Not connected other than in the 'threats to freedom' line, the Norks shelled a South Korean island, killing and injuring people.

In the TSA bullcrap,
In an hour-long discussion with reporters, Pistole said media officials at the Department of Homeland Security had urged him to "get out ahead" of the potential controversy by formally announcing plans for enhanced body searches and the use of new X-ray and radio-wave imaging devices at 70 airports beginning in November.

But doing so would have provided a "roadmap or blueprint for terrorists" to avoid detection by using other airports where the new technology wasn't in place, Pistole said.

Rather than publicize the changes, Pistole said he made a "risk-based" decision to roll it out first and "try to educate the public after we did that."

Translation: "I think flying is a privilege, and the peasants will do what they're told, or else; we don't need to give out this information. Besides, anybody causes problems, we'll punish them with fines and that'll shut them up." Maybe he really believed telling people what was coming would 'warn the terrorists'; if so, he's a fool for thinking the serious threats aren't looking for things like this already.

Also, flying only became a 'privilege' when you decided it was, you dirtbag; before that it was simply a travel option if you could afford it. And we're not your damn customers: a customer is somebody who seeks a service or product from you, therefore having a choice; we're not being given one. Screw you and every one of your clowns speaking of us as 'customers'.

The Andrew Traver "Scary black rifles should be banned from peasant ownership" video has shown up.

A 1911-based .410 autoloading pistol? Bleep.

Back to the TSA crap, the problem with the "You don't like it? Don't fly" line is that TSA has a hand in trains, too; so is taking a train a privilege also? That they can restrict as they choose? Where does that crap stop? "Using the Interstate Highway System is a privilege, not a right, so pull over and be searched"?

Bleah. I need some range time.

Just to make sure, you DID get that the .410 1911 was a parody, right?

I could understand not getting that, if you were in a hurry.

God knows gun companies have made some stupid things over the years, but... I'm not sure I know anyone who could even HOLD that thing, with the size of the grips you'd need...

Firehand said...

Yeah. The size of the grip alone was- is 'giveaway' enough? Also the 'Geese are in dire danger when you have this', etc.

Ok, so how many did they catch?
