Sometimes I need a visit from Churchill or Shakespeare, because I do not have the words

to properly say what this causes to run through my mind.

There are no excuses.  None.  Don't even try.  'Miserable, suckass excuses for lawmen' barely begins to touch on it.

And not one God-damned thing will be done to discipline the vile dirtbags responsible for this.

Which means one more reason for lots of people to say 'Screw the cops, they act like that.'

I don't know if Coburn kept Schumer busy this long

as the gentleman thinks, or if he simply wasn't willing to give in to Schumer on registration.

And make no mistake, that's really what the bastards were after:
A Schumer aide said Coburn and the group never could agree on whether to require private sellers of guns to keep sales records, as is required of gun dealers.

“Sen. Schumer is not prepared to negotiate away the record-keeping requirement in its entirety, lest it make the law unenforceable,” the aide said.
Open admission that they knew their UBC wouldn't work worth crap without registration; and even to close the 'loophole'* at gun shows they claim** to be so concerned about, they wouldn't give up on registration.

And we know why they so badly want it.

*As Tam put it, a loophole is “People Doing Legal $#!t I Don’t Like”.

**And if they truly considered private sales at shows a loophole that desperately needed to be closed, they would have gone along with Coburn; but they wouldn't, because
They really, really want those lists to work from, and
They know the 'loophole' noise is bullshit.

Thank you CO democrats, for demonstrating fully what sexist clowns

and dirtbags you truly are.
A debate that produced a great deal of agonizing stupidity from gun-control zealots in Colorado ended with their decisive defeat on Friday, as related by the Denver Post:
The sponsor of a bill banning concealed weapons on college campuses plans to kill his measure Friday, Democrats have confirmed.
The “controversial comments” referenced by the Post include Democrat Rep. Joe Salazar suggesting that it’s better to arm high-strung women with rape whistles and “safe zones” instead of guns, so they don’t freak out if they “feel like you’re gonna be raped” and “pop out that gun and you pop a round” at random men.  Meanwhile, Democrat senator Evie Hudak was explaining to the survivor of a brutal rape how guns are useless against sexual predators once a woman’s tae kwon do skills have proven ineffective.  And the University of Colorado has been advising female students to repeal attackers with blood, vomit, urine, high-pitched screams, false threats of sexually transmitted disease, and “passive resistance.”

There's the sexist; here's the dirtbag(but at least finally honest) courtesy of Rep. Claire Levy:
“I make no assertion that this bill will either increase or reduce violent crime. That is not the premise of the bill.”
Which pretty much admits that what they really want is unarmed peasants.

Speaking of vile, disgusting(and possible deranged) politicians, we're back to Feinstein:
And yet it’s legal to hunt humans with 15-round, 30-round, even 150-round magazines.
Whiskey Tango Bleepin' Foxtrot?
 She also thinks that military veterans have to be considered dangerous and suspicious until someone(like her) decides otherwise.
Vicious, nasty, lying...

Let's now go to a zero-tolerance asshole who ruins a school in Michigan: Susan Wright, you are a friggin, moron.

What apparently passed for law enforcement in  Dona Ana County, N.M.
And not only did the bastards try to weasel out of the damages, 
 Williams, the Dona Ana County public information officer, said no jail personnel have been fired over Slevin's treatment.
Oh, of course not!  We can't expect the assholes responsible for this to lose their jobs or something!  That would be fucking terrible, wouldn't it?

More media malpractice:
New Study Finds Firearms Laws Do Nothing to Prevent Homicides 
That’s the headline you should be seeing, but won’t. Instead, you will see headlines like this one, on CNN: “Study links gun laws and lower gun mortality.” Or this one, from the Chicago Tribune: “States with strict gun laws found to have fewer shooting deaths.”

Found thanks to Tam, and you've gotta read this

I guess Bloomberg finds it more interesting to screw with people in other states than to deal with kids leaving school unable to read and write.

And now, the proper method of dealing with the officials involved in this crap would be tar and feathers.  And them paying all legal and court costs out of their own pockets.

Hudak's a dirtbag, and this passes as a professor

in Colorado:

During the Monday hearing, Julie Carr, a professor at the University of Colorado at Boulder, said just because someone is able to meet the requirements for a concealed-carry permit, that doesn't mean they are fit to be armed.
"They are not always law-abiding citizens," she said.
Yeah, they've gone through background checks and all that crap, BUT they're so sneaky they get their criminal selves in anyway, right?
This is like Japete(who I'd bet Carr just loves) saying people with CCW permits are criminals that just haven't been caught yet.

Friggin' dirtbags.

Medieval California.  Not in any good way.

It always amazes me that some think our distant ancestors were stupid.  First, if they had been, we wouldn't be here.  Second, things turn up.

More on the backdoor registration DHS has been working on

in Missouri, and no telling what other states:
As I first told you earlier this week, the Department of Revenue has been working with the Department of Homeland Security in violation of several Missouri state statutes by implementing backdoor gun registration. Now the Missouri House is taking action against the DOR via Jay Barnes:
Following a lawsuit and restraining order filed in Stoddard County about local drivers license fee officers scanning personal documents, Rep. Jay Barnes, R-60, chairman of the Government Oversight and Accountability committee, announced Tuesday that the committee intends to investigate this report and others across the state.

More here:
I am wondering who in the Missouri Department of Revenue authorized the collection of this data for DHS; clearly this had to come from somewhere in the Nixon Administration. And it is illegal, a violation of state law which forbids the implementation of the Real I.D. Act here. If Nixon himself gave the order he can be impeached, and with the GOP supermajority in the Missouri Congress he would be removed from office. He should be, if he gave that order.
Of course, that is not the reason to pursue this; this is a foul attempt to circumvent the current law and justice must be served.
Damn right.

I wrote to Coburn, for what it's worth, asking "Between this and Schumer announcing that the deal he's working on with you will be 'the start of registration', do you actually believe that any deal with the Democrats will not involve some type of record-keeping, thus registration?"

As this in MO brought up corrupt dirtbag politicians, we now move to Colorado:
According to a Colorado Bureau of Investigations report obtained by Media Trackers, State Representative Rhonda Fields (D-Aurora) was arrested in 1976 on a charge of larceny and again in 1991 on a charge of shoplifting. Despite her own criminal record, Rep. Fields has sought to limit the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding citizens.

One of those cases that calls for descent into bad language

“It’s about getting people to think, really, about how much ammunition they need,” Gibson added. “It’s a step, I think, in a safer direction. It’s about getting people to think before they buy.”
Listen up, Gibson, you miserable controlling crapbag:
Fuck you.
It's none of your Deity-cursed business how much ammo I choose to buy; how much I 'need' is MY DAMNED CHOICE.  And you can take your attempt at people control, fold it to eight corners, and shove it up your ass.

Yeah, think about what she said:
She then cited a statistic from the Colorado Coalition Against Gun Violence.
For every one woman who used a handgun to kill someone in self-defense, 83 were murdered by them,” Hudak said.
That’s absurd. How could someone who used a handgun to kill someone in self-defense then be murdered by a gun? It makes no sense. But of course, after allegedly apologizing, she repeated this nonsense.
Hudak, you're a disgrace.  Exactly the kind we've come to expect of gun bigots and hoplophobes.

Among the reasons you couldn't pay me to live in NYEffingC: their police no longer think the 4th Amendment means crap.

The Southern Poverty Lie Center strikes again,

and I'm going to let the Usual Suspect respond to their crap(it's lengthy, and in full for the usual reason):
I received this email from an AP reporter in Montgomery this morning:
Mike: This is Bob Johnson at the Associated Press in Montgomery. The Southern Poverty Law Center is at 11 a.m. issuing their annual report on dangerous groups and militias. I wante to see if maybe I could get some comments from you when it comes out. Looking for someone who can give the other side for the SPLC.
Bob Johnson
Here is the resulting story.
Now I had difficulty finding the report at first and asked Johnson to send it to me, He sent me a rough draft of his story. My responses are interspersed throughout.

Researchers report dramatic rise in ‘patriot’ groups after school shooting sparks gun debate
By BOB JOHNSON, Associated Press
Dateline: MONTGOMERY, Ala.
President Barack Obama's administration and the gun control debate after the Connecticut school shooting have led to surging numbers of anti-government “patriot” groups, according to a civil rights group that tracks extremist groups.
The language used -- "anti-government 'patriot' groups -- is itself a lie. Only the wildest of anarchists are "anti-government." The Constitutional militia movement, of which I have been a leader for more than twenty years, is not "anti-government." We are pro-government, of the sort that the Founders would recognize -- small, of limited powers, reflecting the sentiments of the Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights that merely secure and codify natural, inalienable and God-given rights. In our view the present administration and its supporters inhabit a fundamentally alien world view to that of the Founders and ourselves -- they believe that the people serve the government whereas we believe that the government should serve the people. To the extent that the present administration continues to exhibit appetites for our liberty, property and lives we certainly oppose them, and organize with an eye to confront them if forced to, but we are NOT "anti-government." What we seek is not to coerce anyone to our point of view but merely to be left alone. Since the growing tyrannical appetites of the Obama administration (and others before it) as demonstrated by the so-called "Obamacare" law and the current rush to disarm the citizenry are evident for all to see, it is hardly an accident that people who they seek to victimize would object and organize themselves to resist.
The second part of the lie is to characterize a grab-bag of groups with contradictory aims and methods (even groups that consider each other as philosophical enemies) -- into one so-called movement. By conflating people and groups together as "extremists" with an alleged common purpose, SPLC gets to exaggerate, for the purposes of fund-raising, a threat which does not exist.
The Southern Poverty Law Center reported the rising numbers on Tuesday in its annual report on extremist groups.
Even a stopped clock is right twice a day. For the reasons set out above, there certainly is a rise in self-defense militias around the country, but the SPLC hasn't got a single clue as to how deep and broad that movement is because no one with any sense, after the experiences of the 1990s, is using the old paradigm of publicly-announced militia formations. Today's groups are small, quiet, made up of friends, relatives and neighbors on a local, even neighborhood, basis, and thus are immune to federal snitches, agents provocateur and even knowledge of the FBI or of SPLC. Actually, SPLC knows this but since it does not fit with their fund-raising strategy, they pretend an omniscience that simply does not exist.
The number of anti-government patriot groups, one category tracked by the center, rose dramatically over the past four years, from 149 groups in 2008 to 1,360 today, researchers reported. That was up about 7 percent from the 1,274 active in 2011.
This is a wild under-estimation.
The election and re-election of the nation's first black president and the rugged economy have fueled their growth, said Mark Potok, a senior fellow at the SPLC. “The anger, angst, frustration, fear surrounding the economy have very much poured fuel on this fire,” Potok said.
This fits with the collectivist sociology theories of SPLC and its intellectual brethren but how does it explain the growth of black self-defense militias? There is certainly concern that the present untenable government spending and printing of money will collapse into social chaos, but Obama being half-black has nothing to do with the growth of the armed citizenry. This is one more example of how present-day so-called progressives are reflexively obsessed themselves with race (and why they feel it necessary to conflate true racist terrorist groups like the Klan and NeoNazis with groups like ourselves who believe that the Constitution extends to everyone regardless of race, creed, color or religion). In their obsession with race, SPLC and others would put a 1930s Nazi gauleiter of Lower Swabia in the shade. It is their ultimate weapon, when out-argued, to cry racism and point fingers.
On gun control, the debate following the Newtown, Conn., mass murder of schoolchildren has led to “a kind of white-hot rage unleashed on both the radical right and also within more mainstream political circles,” he said.
"White-hot rage"? I don't see it. The administration has declared its appetite for more of our property and liberty. It is natural to oppose this grab but we cannot afford "white-hot rage." We're lining up to flout their new laws with carefully considered armed civil disobedience. If we were motivated into a "white hot rage" professional liars like Potok could not walk the streets of Montgomery in safety.
In the week following the Dec. 14 school shooting, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said it conducted more background checks for firearms sales and permits to carry than it has in any other one-week period since 1998.
Yes, certainly. And what do you conclude from this fact? Do the advocates of citizen disarmament believe that we are buying all these weapons and billions of rounds of ammunition merely to turn them in with the passage of the next law? We are not.
Some critics believe the SPLC is too broad in labeling hate and extremist groups, to the point of including legitimate political organizations that oppose illegal immigration, gun control, gay rights and other issues. The center's researchers say they use a variety of methods to track anti-government groups and compile their list from field reports, patriot publications, law enforcement sources and news reports. Potok said only active groups are included. “We are not just looking at one man and a computer,” he said.
The SPLC's symbiotic relationship with the militarized federal police agencies is a matter of record -- and it is a relationship which they profit from by numerous so-called "hate group seminars" that propagandize their world view to federal, state and local law enforcement. You may recall that SPLC defended the ATF at the time of the "Good O' Boys Roundup" scandal, when Alabama militia exposed their racist get-togethers which involved disgusting conduct such as the issuance of "nigger hunting licenses" and skits like one entitled "The Birth of the Black Race" which involved the "magical" appearance of a black baby doll from inside a watermelon. Disgusting stuff, but Morris Dee, in a story by Fox Butterfield in the New York Times, alleged that the Gadsden Minutemen's videotape was a forgery. It wasn't, as later proven by the FBI lab, but it WAS proof that SPLC is a willing handmaiden to government racists when it suits their agenda. Pretty ironic, huh?
The report states: “Generally, Patriot groups define themselves as opposed to the 'New World Order,' engage in groundless conspiracy theorizing, or advocate or adhere to extreme anti-government doctrines.”
"Groundless conspiracy theorizing" such as the Fast and Furious scandal, for example? Under the SPLC definition of "extreme anti-government doctrines," the Founders would have made their list.
The FBI defines military extremists as anti-government groups often organized into paramilitary groups that follow a military-style rank hierarchy and typically engage in wilderness, survival, or other paramilitary training, according to a September 2011 FBI report on domestic terrorism.
Yeah, well under that definition local search and rescue teams are "military extremists."
Along with the rise of extremist groups, Potok said there have been several home-grown terrorist plots against government buildings and leaders in recent months. He compared the climate to time leading up to the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing.
The propaganda of collectivists like SPLC is certainly the same, as is the government's militarized police actions, brought to fever pitch by the last three administrations and the so-called "war on terror." The only difference this time is that there will be no more free Wacos. SPLC and the administration know this and they are counting on SPLC's lying narrative to prepare the battlefield of a civil war they are apparently seeking in national and world opinion. The SPLC thus remains one of the most faithful lapdogs of federal tyranny.
The report cites several cases, including one centered on a Georgia Army base involving a group known as F.E.A.R. (Forever Enduring Always Ready). Federal prosecutors maintain that F.E.A.R. was led by active-duty soldiers at Ft. Stewart who also plotted bomb attacks in Savannah and aimed to poison apple crops in Washington state.
So far I haven't seen an updated story with my reaction in it.

Some questions for CO senator Evi Hudak:

Starting here:
And lots more.  You see, Hudak 'apologized'
Hudak, a Democrat from Westminster, told Amanda Collins, 27, of Reno, Nev., the rapist could have used the gun against her. Hudak said after the meeting her job is to keep the safety of all college campus students in mind.
And the general consensus is "Bullshit; she's catching a lot of heat for this idiocy, so she's playing "Oh, I'm so sorry if anyone was offended, but I'm more concerned with everyone's safety; and if you getting raped is part of the price of keeping those nasty legal guns off campus, you'll have to pay up." "

Colorado Democrats: You being raped is just the price you pay for them to disarm the commoners.

Tech Sight is making them for a LOT of stuff now

Including the Plinkster, and Marlin 60, and on and on.

"Shouldn't have the same stuff as the regulars"

may ass.

On the death of a commie dictator:
It was a sad day for the moonbat community.
The People’s Republics of Cambridge and Amherst rushed to lower their flags to half staff first. A spontaneous candlelight vigil erupted in Muddy River. Funeral dirges played endlessly on the NPR stations, like Radio Moscow when Uncle Joe passed. Someone dimmed the lights at the Globe, causing an immediate panic in the newsroom, where the fops 
assumed the newspaper was finally being shut down.

Chief Flynn has a lot of nerve calling someone else a politician.  Especially with his record, and that of his agency.

Today’s Washington journalists are like J. R. R. Tolkien’s ring wraiths, petty lords who wanted a few shiny golden Obama rings — only to end up as shrunken slaves to the One.

A correction to this article on the DHS armored fighting vehicle/weapons buys: DHS isn't buying AR15s as Personal Defense Weapons: they're buying select-fire M16s.
Which again brings up
Why are those PDWs when DHS buys them, but semi-auto rifles are Evil Assault Weapons when us commoners have them?

Well, she hates guns and gun owners, of COURSE Obama wants her on that court.

Chickenshit politicians in NY feeling heat, and trying to cover their ass.
Proper response: throw their ass out of that taxpayer-supplied office.

Yeah, that'll work; sure, the kind of slimeball who'd commit rape will stop if you tell them "Don't do that."  Yeah, right.

Oh, HORRORS!!!, the NRA is resorting to the democratic process!!!

And, y'know, it's kind of hard to take the "Nobody wants to take your guns!" denials(or the people saying it) seriously when the people involved keep saying things like this.  And pushing laws like this and this.

When son's unit was at White Sands for training a couple of years back, a humvee-full of troops was going down a back road and passed a roadrunner trotting along.
A little further down the road they found a coyote that was so mashed and dead it looked like a smear of mulch.
Few moments later someone said "Dumb bastard never learns, does he?"

Total story: Parks McCants is a dick who doesn't like commoners owning arms that scare him.

Speaking of dicks, this is a college student:
Nicholas Stanley, a DePaul commuter student, said that the NRA “has no right to push for less regulation and more pro-gun laws” because the Second Amendment was written during a time in America when there was no large, organized military.
"has no right"... really, asshole? We have no RIGHT so speak our piece, push our view?  You're a fucking moron who has no understanding of that Constitution you dismiss.

God, I am sick of self-righteous idiots deciding other peoples' rights don't count when they conflict with the idiots' socialist views.

hmm... I wonder who all they expect to be shooting through the gunports

".......10 or 11 operators in here, very tight but we can do it....I'll stand on the MRAP and provide overwatch for team while they are making entry into the house.......We have gunports so we can actually shoot from within the vehicle; you may think it's pretty loud but actually it's not too bad...we have gunports there in the back and two on the sides as well."
So.  Money was expected to be so tight they bought 2,700 of these. And I'm sure DHS is spending a bunch more buying these 'operators' only the best ninja suits and armor and face masks(cant' have people seeing our faces while we're doing this shit, now can we?)

Again, exactly what do they plan on doing with all of them?

A re-post: pre-attack indicators and situational awareness (update)

reading Limatunes post reminded me of this, and I dug it up:
Just a gathering of things I've run into over time
From Xavier, this one and this one.

From a place called TDA Training, which I hadn't seen before

From Blue Sheepdog, which I also hadn't seen before
Similar from PoliceOne, with more links

Something from James

I had a link a year or so ago that had some very good information, including pics to illustrate each warning sign, but I can't find it. If I do, I'll add it here. Here it is, thanks to kanigit:
Managing Contacts(pdf document)

And if you've got a good one, let me know in comments and I'll add it, and put this on the sidebar

Added: from Tam, a good way to put it:
 Not that there's anything wrong with hardware per se, but it's good to have some software upgrades, too. You know, so you have the correct drivers installed.

"Secretary Kerry, why can't we talk to any of the Benghazi survivors?"

"(because we don't want you to, you fool!)Ahhh, ummm....."

Sometimes it's not just ok, hitting someone is the RIGHT thing to do.
Go read.  It's good.
And, once again, this 'zero tolerance' crap is one of the more idiotic things to take hold in schools(gee, thanks again you socialist assholes).  When a kid defending himself is held equally as guilty as the jerk who started the fight, it's a big problem.

Somewhat connected, when daughter was learning to drive, the Rodney King riots started. Watching some video that included that poor bastard being dragged out of his truck and maimed, I told her to always remember that when driving she was always armed with 'X' horsepower and at least a ton of metal, and "NEVER let someone force you to stop, especially if there's some kind of crowd mess going on."
"What if they get in front of me?"
"What if they won't move?"
"Drive OVER them."
"You could get in trouble for that!"
"You have to be alive and whole to worry about that. Lawyers are cheap in comparison."

Why so much mistrust of cops nowadays?

Start here and scroll down through the 'Raid of the Day' entries for some reasons.
Things like
The following year, the Kansas Court of Appeals ruled that the search warrant authorizing the raid on Shively's apartment was illegal. From the opinion: "Regrettably, the loss of an officer's life might have been prevented if the affidavit had been candid and not designed to mislead the magistrate into issuing the search warrant."
The six police officers who took part in the raid were awarded the Topeka Police Department's Medal of Merit.
The federal jury concluded that the officers shot Robinson without justification, then tampered with the evidence to cover up their mistakes. The jury didn't believe the investigation conducted by the police department's internal affairs division. The following February, the eight officers involved in the raid were suspended, more than two years after the raid. Robinson's family won $2.85 million in damages against the officers, and negotiated a $1 million settlement from the city.

$50,000,000 in new uniforms for TSA.  JUST before the sequester kicked in.   Yeah, they're worried about money.

Tam ran across this.  And yeah, these people are freakin' nuts.

I wonder if it occurs to any of them that some of those bullets are going to come down and ding all the pretty cars?

"Privacy? Law? Shut up and let us copy that, or else!"

A Southeast Missouri man has sued after being told by a license office that it would make digital copies of documents needed for a permit to carry a concealed weapon. The Missouri Department of Revenue has allegedly been compiling data on Missouri residents seeking concealed carry permits and then forwarding it to a third party with ties to the federal government.
...Oliver says Griffin refused to let DMV employees scan and store some of his documentation — so he was denied his permit.
Isn't that just bloody interesting?   Especially as
...“Missouri law makes it clear that what is going on here is illegal, and serves no legitimate purpose since the county sheriff is solely charged with the duty of determining applicants’ eligibility for endorsement.”
This is likely to get interesting.

How about some lawsuits against the idiot 'teachers' and administrators behind this idiocy? Something like 'intentional harm to a child'?
Once again: 'Zero Tolerance' actually means 'Zero Brains Required for teachers and administrators.

"Just because you were raped you want a gun for protection?  Well, I don't think the numbers say that's a good idea."
Democrat Senator Evie Hudak: you are a vile creature.

What?  The TSA is actually going to deal with its problems?
Naaaaah, I'm just shitting you. Basically, they're going to hire a muppet.
The group that created Smokey Bear and McGruff the Crime Dog has a new potential icon: Stephanie the airport screener.
A $1.3 million ad campaign launched this month teams the Ad Council and the Transportation Security Administration trying to change behavior of passengers who no longer automatically accept post-Sept. 11 airport security procedures.
Maybe they can come up with a jingle:
"Help Steffie tell this tale
Do what we say or go to jail
Get in line, shut up, obey
Dontcha know it's the American way!"

Friend wanted to hit the range today and do a little rifle and load testing.  However, it's mid-30's with a north wind blowing, and since I have a hard time shooting accurately when I'm shivering, that's off for today.  Ah well, there's always more cleaning to do.


So is Umbridge pretending to be Feinstein, or-

I rather think a bunch of Colorado politicians aren't liking

what they've stirred up.
Probably a combination of liberal bigotry, pushing from the Obamites and Nanny Bloomberg and thinking "After Newtown we can push this through!" got it to this point.  Now they've got companies saying "Screw you, pass this and we're gone" and many, many local citizens pissed off to a high degree.  And reminding the clowns "That office does not belong to you, we can and will take it back."

And if anyone in Denver thinks the 'We'll move' is a bluff, well, other states have been actively telling Magpul "Hey, we'd LOVE to have you move here!"  And, as some other states are finding, other companies are getting the same invites.

Problem is, the politicians wanted to use these companies as punching bags but still keep them around(because politicians may hate the people and product but they LOVES them all those tax dollars and jobs), and thought "Why, no one would ever consider moving just because we call them 'murderers' and 'accessories to child killing' and such"; they're finding out they damn well can and will move.

I guarantee Schumer for one is trying desperately to think of a way to either tell certain companies they can't move, or some way to claim taxes from them after they move.

Rep. Mitch Greenlick (D-Portland): incompetent or

a liar?
Yes, another one.
Even Rep. Mitch Greenlick, D-Portland, the chief sponsor of House Bill 3200, said the bill as introduced goes too far in not only banning the sale of these weapons but in limiting each gun owner to continue possessing just one of these firearms. 

Greenlick said he also disagrees with a provision that would allow the state police to investigate gun owners who possess one of these weapons to make sure they are safely stored. 

 "In its current form, it's a pretty flawed bill," said Greenlick, adding that "I don't think [the bill] is in play."
So, just like Sens. Adam Kline and Jeanne Kohl-Welles in WA, Greenlick is either a liar or an incompetent; which do you think?

Awww, Nanny Bloomberg was treated with disrespect.  Schumer, too.

Damn.  And it's only taken the media, what, going on five years to have a problem with this crap!
“I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,” says one DC veteran. “She was doing her job, and they were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — bitch, c–t, a–hole.” He complained and was told the matter would be investigated: “They were hemming and hawing, saying, ‘We’ll look into it.’ Nothing happened.”

Well, from what I've read the FDA has been in the way of both creating new meds and letting people use stuff for decades, it's just gotten worse the last while.

Let's start with "If someone has a terminal illness, they can try any experimental drug they wish."

Speaking of dirtbag politicians, we have  Freshman Sen. Phil Boyle, R-Suffolk County, NY, who
issued a news release on Friday detailing his change of heart, criticizing the way the bill was rushed through the Legislature. The new law—known as the Secure Ammunition and Firearms Enforcement Act, or SAFE Act—violates the Second Amendment, Boyle claims.
Translation: "So many voters have announced they want me out of office for voting for this piece of crap that I'm changing my mind about it!"

NOW I'm out to carry the stuff; I thought I'd posted this but it was still in the Draft folder

The WV Journal News is run by either wimps

or Democrat partisans, and Sen. Manchin is a coward.  And the cover story from the coward's office:
See, it was a miscommunication on the paper's part. "I didn't tell her she couldn't ask I told her he wouldn't answer them," a Manchin spokesperson tells Politico's Reid Epstein.
Distinction without a difference.  And the journalist and editor responsible should have their ass kicked for going along with this.

From the same Insty link where I found the above,
Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) said he has "made clear if the Senate acts on gun control legislation, the House will consider it."
I hope this clown understands what it means if that includes passing the Democrat 'registration by another name' known as universal background check.  It means the Stupid Party can kiss our ass forevermore.  If they can't stand against this crap now, they never will.

Damn.  I didn't know March 1 was National Pig Day.  Wirecutter celebrated in fine manner(this should be SFW, a lot of the rest of his stuff wouldn't be).

Well, hell, if Feral is that threatening I must be a fairly awful sort myself.
(possibly NSFW some places)

From OGAM,

Media Matters throws fit, using, ah, 'selective' facts.

I shall now try to carry a pile of branches around for pickup.  Hoping I don't manage to stick any of them into me.

At least the thieving, corrupt bastards are consistent

Remember "You need to be prepared in case of disaster!", which was followed by "People who make these preparations should be considered possible terrorists or supporters!"?

"You need to save for your retirement!", followed by "These people are costing the government money by saving for their retirement, so we need to screw them!"

And that's it for now.  It's nice outside(before the next front arrives), and there's stuff I want to do that involves being outside.

And the Democrats next move will be to try to ban

or license 3-D printers
And ban or license the software.

Know someone who bitched "You're always saying 'Democrats'!  That's divisive!'"
"So tell me, who is it primarily that keeps wanting to ban or license guns?"
