Saturday night

Time for that labor of- well, appreciation

"At the end of the day, property is property," he said.

Constable Danny Marttini said employees should not put their lives at risk to prevent robberies, asking shop owners to prioritise their personal safety over securing their stores.
Let's see... they were smashing a window in, waving weapons around in broad daylight and knowing there were people inside, so does Marttini think they'd hesitate a moment to cripple or kill someone while they're robbing the place?  Or would that happening be better than the owner/employees protecting their livelihood and themselves?

The ACLU has turned, over a fair while, into the "We defend people/rights that are politically correct" organization it is today.  Screw the bastards. 

Oh, to have seen the faces of the campus offense police when they read this...

If Jesus were to return, here's a temple

he just might want to repeat that 'overturning tables and using a whip on people' thing at.  Because it appears that place needs some cleaning out.

Of course, there's an awful lot of Catholic offices and churches he'd have to repeat it at.  Be interesting to see how many came out of the Vatican with whip marks on their backs.

Ah, Friday;

especially after this one, some relaxation and study is called for

'Expert opinion':

"We've never found anything there before, so it can't be what you think it is."


Once again I'm wondering what all else is sitting out there.

I will break my 'probably no blogging' for this, because even if Larry hadn't written MHI

I'd want to send him some cash for writing things like this:
Of course the congressman is now saying that using nuclear weapons on American gun owners was an exaggeration, he just wanted to rhetorically demonstrate that the all-powerful government could crush us peasants like bugs, they hold our pathetic lives in their iron hand, and he’d never ever advocate for the use of nuclear weapons on American soil (that would be bad for the environment!), and instead he merely wants to send a SWAT team to your house to shoot you in the face if you don’t comply.

See? That’s way better.

But this post isn’t about that particular line from one foolish congressman. It’s about all of the silly left wing memes that have popped up since, trying to justify the congressman’s basic premise that the 2nd Amendment is obsolete for resisting tyranny, and the government would obliterate anyone who failed to comply. 
But basically it boils down to one side making the argument: The idea of the 2nd Amendment resisting a tyrannical government is obsolete, because the federal government is too overwhelmingly powerful, and has too many advanced technologies.    

So today I’m writing this for my left leaning friends and readers, in the hopes that I can break down the flaws in this argument. I’m going to try not to be too insulting. Accent on try… But I’ll probably fail because this is a really stupid argument.

I'm beat; I may blog some the next few days, and I may not

Dad had an accident at home several weeks ago, had to have surgery on both legs.  He's recovering, but while he's down I need to occasionally get to their place to take care of some things.  Throw some not-very-restful nights, and you get my current condition.

So, in the meantime,

They really don't like questions that show either

they don't know what the hell they're talking about, or their intention to ban everything.
First he throws out this bullshit:
Would you limit the ban and confiscation to semi-auto rifles or would you extend the ban to semi-auto handguns also, seeing as they’re illegally used many times over more in crimes such as homicide?
Fair question. Rifles. They’re more powerful and cause more carnage when used with a pistol-grip. See @ScottPelley @60Minutes piece."Oh noes, the deadly pistol grip!"  The ignorance is just oozing out, isn't it?  Or he could know it's bullshit, and is playing the 'use anything to scare people' game; personally, I'm betting on ignorance.

And then the good one:
Can you explain to me the difference between assault weapons and semi-automatic rifles? Is .223 ok but 30.06 not? Why?
Response: silence.  Because an answer that actually requires more than "Evil features!" is apparently beyond him. 

Oh, Swalwell?  Once again: you can't 'buy back' something that YOU NEVER OWNED, you thieving asshole.

One of the things lost in my truck maintenance notebook

was when I last replaced the battery.  So when this one started showing signs of incipient death, I wasn't sure how old it was, and no receipt.

Took it in, lady checks a bar code on it, which turns out to link to showing when I bought it.  Ran a test, "It's still under warranty."  So walked out with a new battery.

That works.

How bloody stupid and closeted are hoplophobes and gun bigots?

This stupid.

It's just bloody amazing that supposedly intelligent, sophisticated people can spout such bullshit and believe it.

High in the competition for 'Most Stupid Statement Uttered In Public', we have
