There Was A Reason We Seceded From Britain...

...and there still is.

Pam Geller, if you don't recall, organized the Mohammed Cartoons show in Garland, TX, at which Muslim murderers arrived to slaughter the crowd, only to be gunned down by security.

It didn't get nearly the news play which was accorded far less important events.

Secretary of State Kerry believes mass murders by Muslims, such as in Paris, have a certain "legitimacy" because they are offended by cartoons. This, of course, may be extended to those who cut off Christians' heads and sell Christian girls into sex slavery. Christians who protest are anti-Muslim bigots.

But we already knew that.

GunTV: The 24 Hour a Day Shopping Channel for Guns

Bummer: "Gun control advocates have reacted with frustration. In the climate of a deepening national divide over gun control, “this is something that’s definitely going to enrage a lot of people,” said Ladd Everitt, a spokesman for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence."

Like maybe the haters at the New York Times?

"I can stop anytime I want" Department

"Eventually, the man told police snorting cocaine in the middle of a traffic stop was perhaps a poor decision."

Facebook has reared it's intrusive little head and I am doing a fair bit there. I may well return to blogging at some point, though.

Hawaii Government At Work

Hawaii Government: It's slow, it's unfocused, it flails about, it eats everything in sight, and it leaves a trail of slime everywhere it goes.

How To Open A Can With A Spoon

This looks like fun. It does look a lot less messy that rubbing the top rim of the can against a rock or piece of concrete.

Leftie Attack Bernie Sanders For Insufficient Authoritarianism On Gun Control

Slate's Mark Joseph Stern reveals some of the apparently drug addled attitudes which pass for profound thought amongst gun haters.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders...supported the most odious NRA–backed law in recent memory—one that may block Sandy Hook families from winning a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the gun used to massacre their children....

...As a senator, Sanders supported bills to allow firearms in checked bags on Amtrak trains...
Such utter irresponsibility of a government which allows people of a supposedly free country to put guns in their checked baggage. Just like on planes. Amazing.
Sanders’ vote for a different kind of pro-gun bill is more puzzling—and profoundly disturbing. In 2005, a Republican-dominated Congress passed the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA). This law doesn’t protect gun owners; it protects gun manufacturers, distributors, dealers, and importers. The PLCAA was the No. 1 legislative priority of the National Rifle Association for years, because it shields gun makers and dealers from most liability when their firearms are used criminally. It is one of the most noxious pieces of pro-gun legislation ever passed. And Bernie Sanders voted for it.
The Horror! This is like preventing the victims of truck bombings from suing Toyota. "But those trucks are designed specifically for carrying large loads, and it was utterly predictable that someone would fill one with explosives and use it to kill masses of people. Let's bankrupt Toyota."
Before the PLCAA, most states imposed some form of tort liability on gun makers and sellers. If a gun manufacturer made an assault rifle that could slaughter dozens of people in a few seconds, for instance, one of its victims might sue the company for negligently making a gun that could foreseeably be used for mass murder.
Just like that Toyota. Mr. Stern also studiously ignores the demonstrable fact that shooting people is not always a bad thing. Shooting the two jihadi would-be mass murderers in Texas a couple days ago was unequivocally a good thing. Shooting forcible rapists is unequivocally a good thing. There are a lot of people who engage in acts which unequivocally makes them proper targets for shooting.

Perhaps when confronted with murder by someone who dislikes him for his obvious white male privilege, Mr Stern prefers to open a dialog with the gentlemen as they bash his head in. I'd rather just shoot them.

From the comments: "Personal responsibility is a slippery slope. If you start blaming murderers for murders, next thing you know, you will start expecting people to provide their own food, shelter, and clothing. "
