Because you’re a cheap, classless bitch, that’s why! Seriously, it’s no secret that if you’re in a large party, most chains run an auto-gratuity at somewhere between 15-20%, usually 18%. This has been the case for a decade or more now, and we all know why that is. The waitstaff has no control over that gratuity add-on in a chain, so why take it out on them? And now this waitress gets shitcanned? Pastor, I hope you become internet famous for this bullshit. I think you will. And I hope the waitress gets hired by someone else quickly. I’ve never worked a day in a restaurant, and I fucking LOATHE non-tippers. LOATHE. THEM. No respect for themselves, or the waitstaff.

*This link and Pshop was from yesterday, I forgot it. That guy does great Pshops but has never once given me any firewood.
And yes, in case any of you were wondering, I do make myself laugh. I’m my own best audience.
Sonomabatch. I wrote this post about an hour ago but I had one last link and when I hit it, I got a pop up that when I closed, closed every window and tab opened and the autosave draft was useless. That’s too bad, because that was possibly the best blogging I’ve ever done and it’s all gone.Seriously, the bon mots were especially bon.
The theme was “Send guns and money, keep the lawyers”.
I know, I shouldn’t use
Explorer… Netscape…Firefox. Can we get to when I’m not supposed to use Google Chrome? That’s the only browser I don’t like.
So here we go round the tubes. Again.
First in send guns edition, we get a police commissioner doing two funny things, telling the truth both about the law and his intentions and talking about wanting to make guns even more illegal to get them off the streets. The law won’t do crap, he wants to ban handguns and making them more illegal will take them off the streets. Oh, and he’s an idiot who doesn’t understand cause and effect.
So let’s hear it from Ray Kelly in the NY Post, explaining why we can’t be trusted but he can.
While assault rifles serve no legitimate hunting purpose, and their ban would be a welcome advance after the Newtown slaughter,…
By contrast, a total of 77 assault weapons were seized in arrests in the city, less than 3 percent of the total.
In only three of nearly 1,400 shooting incidents last year were ballistics associated with assault weapons.
So, assault weapons bans are useless even if they’re effective (which they aren’t, aside from only banning scary options, those guns were probably already illegally possessed), but those guns are scary so let’s ban them.
But then we get to the meat(head) part of his ‘argument’. The ellipses above took out talk about how handguns were mostly used in crime. Which handguns were probably nearly exclusively illegally possessed as it’s very hard to get a permit in NYC unless you’re one of the bien pensants (only thinking bien thoughts and, more importantly, supporting bien pols and bien positions while giving lots of bien money).
Back to Ray. He tells us about a specific gun (Ruger) used to kill Teh Children, then explains why making guns even more illegal will be good and then this.
Ninety percent of the guns used in crimes in New York City also originated out of state, with Virginia, Pennsylvania, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina and Florida among the most frequent repeat states of origin.
Love that, most originate out of state. From which states the most? We don’t know, he just says these are some of the places, notice he only talks about free states, but I wonder how many originate (were stolen) from Conn., Mass, NJ and Vermont? Especially since Vermont has some seriously lenient gun laws and shares a long border that’s mostly a lake (Champlain) that leads to 87 which leads directly to NYC. Hmmmmm, now why wouldn’t a leftist, authoritarian not refer to a leftist state with a Socialist senator?I’m stumped.
He disregards that 90% of the guns come from out of state (I would bet that, like 42% of all statistics, that 90% is completely made-up), what the hell does he think is going to happen if we make guns illegal in the US? That’s right you fucking moron, criminals will get guns from out of the US. Mexico has a nice pipeline of illegal people and good flowing in, that should pick up the slack. So I won’t have a gun, but Putin, Chavez’ successor and the gov’t of Mexico will be more than happy to sell AKs(first two) and ARs(ours, sort of a lend-lease from Mexico) to our criminals. Yay! Asshole.
Speaking of which, here is the pdf of the scary options banned. I look forward to Bushmaster’s new line of AR-15s (or whatever they call them) with a smooth, fixed, pistol-grip-less stock and deluxe, target barrel with no bayonet mount that comes with a 7-round mag. No shoulder thing that goes up, but that goes without saying. (or ever rationally thinking)
Next, we have my favorite type of op-ed, when one of our “Elite” looks at an issue for the first time, shows he has never, ever read any gun-blogger or 2nd amendment proponent talking about gun laws and is stumped. He looks at the proposed gun laws and finds they won’t really do anything, they’re not ‘rational’.
This heightened “rationality review” could help ensure that the reason being articulated is the real reason for the law.
Bwahahahahahahahahhaha. The reason for the law is never the reason being articulated. Especially when talking about gun laws. The reason behind gun laws is control. When a law claims the death of a child or children as its patron, you have to accept that the people proposing the law are dancing in the blood of that child or children and look at the law accordingly. It’s not rocket surgery.
Wow, this time is longer, sorry. I was less loquacious earlier. I had only had one cup of coffee at that time.
Next, we have stuff heating up in Lebanon with Israel bombing along the Syrian-Lebanese border. Eh, you know them Jews, probably a baby-milk truck convoy. Bastards.
In ‘Send Money’ hilarity, we have another ‘Elite” furrowing his brow and not understanding reality.
US debt headed toward 200 percent of GDP even after ‘fiscal cliff’ deal
How do you respond to that? This fool thinks that raising the borrowing limit was supposed to lower debt.
See, this is my problem. When people who think they’re intelligent actually say stuff that fucking stupid I can’t help but laugh and explain in great detail exactly how fucking stupid they are, or I just keep my mouth shut. I wish I knew some way in between, but when I try my tone of voice screams, “You fucking moron!!!!!!” or is the tone you use when you explain to a 2-year old why they don’t want to put the kitten in the microwave. You use a totally different tone of voice when you’re telling the 2-year old why you should put the kitten in the microwavce.
I lost some links, so even though this time is longer, there are fewer links. So less for more. Another victim of the Obama economy!
The University of Minnesota is spending $3,400 to host a symposium this spring specifically designed to help its female undergraduate students achieve bigger, better and more orgasms.
I’m a little depressed I didn’t think of that.I wonder how they’ll do it. I figure, you put all the girls in the gym on the mats, get them naked and tell them to start touching themselves while you and your assistants will wander the roome and help them as you see necessary. Not forgetting, of course, the important role blowjobs play in the female orgasm.
If the nearest bar doesn’t have “Ladies Night” right after the Symposium they’re idiots.
Well, that’s that. I will say that using a laptop outside in AZ is not all that easy. I get to watch myself type in the screen and I can’t see the cursor for crap.
Dethpicable is the theme of the day.
Updated later, I meant to include this seeming despicability, but it’s more nuanced.
Berlusconi, second longest Italian PM to Mussolini, said that aside from all the Jew-hatred, Mussolini wasn’t so bad.
People are all OUTRAGED!!!
Let me comment. I have lots of Italian family members (some might or might not be related), I have a ‘cousin’ in Italy who was with the Italian army in North Africa, there were probably others, but we drank some vino and talked about it. His version of WWII was wandering around Africa until they found some Americans to surrender to and then they threw a party. He really didn’t want to go there to fight, neither did his whole unit (corps? Division? Army?)
He, and all my Italian relatives who were alive in WWII, had the same attitude toward Mussolini, never did a better leader have a worse people. They all felt kind of bad they let him down. It’s a funny sort of deal. They’re all northern Italians, Sicilians might have a different attitude.
Now back to the post.
First up in our tour of the tubes, we have some cumming.
So Obama the other day casually mentioned how he goes skeet shooting all the time. Now naturally, the Minitrue employeed just nodded and cummed (they do that whenever Obama talks), but everybody not making their underwear sticky thought, “Well, that’s a lie”.
What we’re seeing is that Obama can literally say anything that pops into his head and the despicable Minitrue will just nod, cum and accept it so his lies are getting even more ridiculous. I anxiously await his telling some Minitrue tool about his first miracle.
Via Ace, we see The New Republic seeing a p-shop where someone took the golf club out of Obama’s hand and put in a shotgun, they then started cumming and posting one-handed about how this oughtta shut up them wingnuts.
Now back to our regularly, scheduled post.
Next we have something that illustrates so helpfully exactly how full of Jew-Hatred our tolerant, loving neighbors in EUnuchstan really are.
On Holocaust Day the London Times ran this cartoon showing a caricature Netanyahu (now with extra-Jewish features!) building a wall using the blood and bodies of the peaceful Egyptians and Jordanians who live in Gaza and the West Bank. The cartoon is so despicable, you would have to be steeped in hatred to not say, “Well that’s fucking despicable.”
Next in despicability, we see that ABC interviewed Menendez and didn’t ask about his problems with underage hookers. Further, they knew in March and April that he was being investigated but kept it quiet, can’t have voters get confused about whether to pull the lever for an (R) who wants to kill children or a (D) who just rapes them.
It’s For The Children of course.
Now we’ll have some global warmmongering despicability. Now I figure that most of the adherents of that religion (who aren’t making money or power off it) actually have faith, it’s the poo-bahs who know the truth and lie out their teeth for power and money I find despicable. In that link, we see that electronic vehicles help curb global worming (made up problem) at the cost of raping the environment because of all the pollutionistical batteries.
Well duh. Any engineer could have told you that, further, I would dispute that it saves on green house gasses (plant food), making electricity ain’t free. Just cuz the car doesn’t spew CO2 doesn’t mean the electric generator down the road doesn’t.
I can’t do any more despicability, how about some hilarity?
Next we have talk about how Minitrue and other media outlets (TV, Movies, etc.) try to demoralize their hated enemies (me) but we can’t put up with it!
Me? My fellow Americans demoralized me when they voted for free shit and re-elected Teleprompter Jesus.
What the demoralizers don’t understand is that I’m not really demoralized, I’ve given up trying to stop the end or even hoping that we can avoid. See, I’m not upset that lefties rule, I’m more worried about what happens when their unsustainable programs stop. What happens when people who have been told for 60 years that they deserve free shit and they don’t get that free shit? Trouble, that’s what’s gonna happen, it’s gonna be ugly. I’m not joking at all when I say the asteroid is the best option.
Now we something that remoralizes me, at least lets me know there are people on my side.
Seattle had a gun ‘buy-back’ program (a lie in the title! They’re not “buying guns back” unless you accept that the gov’t owns everything and just lets us use some stuff for a while) and it ended up being a gun show. The cops were offering
$100 for handguns, shotguns and rifles, and $200 for assault weapons
So some freedom loving Americans were offering the people selling their dead grandfather’s guns a lot more than $100
for handguns, rifles and shotguns and were also offering over $1000 for that “$200 assault rifle”, so this “buy back” program was a roaring success. We saved more guns from being destroyed.
It’s funny how often capitalism surprises our fine political, social, intellectual and moral betters.
In further non-despicability blogging, a blegging.
For Buy a Gun Day, since my next gun purchases are going to be high end that I can’t afford, especially in the current climate, I think I’m going to get a sword (I might get a recurve bow as well).
Anybody have any ideas on where to get a good sword? I’ve heard Cold Steel is pretty good, nothing super spectacular, but good steel and good swords. I’m not going up against the Dread Pirate Roberts (or even Inigo Montoya), but I do want a nice sword and I don’t want a katana.
Now, the hotassery. Wyatt had a post on Taylor Swift and I realized that, even though she creeps me out, she’s freaking hot.
Two quotes of the day today.
Yeah, they probably weren’t from today.
First up, in talking about a new Japanese “invention” that’s an ‘anti-loneliness, miso soup bowl‘ we have this
One of the guys opined that it should be given the model name “Miso Ronery”
Why do I have the feeling I’ll be explaining that burst of laughter to someone after I die?
That door a criminal breaks down? Yeah, that was there to protect him from my Beretta.
That burst of laughter? Not a problem.
What steams me about this is that both of those quotes were told to that no-account Lemur King.
I refuse to link him because it’s Day 3 of his avoiding talking about the murderiferousness of his minions.
The silence is sickening.
Let’s go round the tubes today, January 15 or so, 2013.
First, we see some unintentional hilarity/scariness. Via the puppy blender, with this link to a story about the coming revolution in China. With a “wink-wink/nudge-nudge’ involved, if you ask my personal opinion. Why is that? you ask?
I don’t like questions much, but this once I’ll let it slide and answer. The puppy blender quotes a bit, my comments in bold.
One key indicator is that those with access to the levers of power within the ruling order cease to believe in the religion or ideology that legitimizes the regime(like Dem voter fraud, fighting for voter fraud in the form of fighting against voter ID laws, prominent supporters ignoring the rule of law, like all the tax cheats in his admin, Holder and Obama skating on Fast and Furious, Obama and Hillary skating on Benghazi, David Gregory skating on blatantly breaking a DC law that all the Important People believe is stupid, (to enforce laws against Important People Making Points))). Another is that their underlings also gradually abandon the beliefs that render respectable the rule of their masters (I lived in DC and worked in the federal gov’t and deal with the DMV, bureaucrats hold us and the law in contempt, just look at the fucking EPA). This happened some time ago in China, and there very nearly was a revolution at the time of Tiananmen Square. Tellingly, the key players among the young at that time were often the children of party officials(you know, the Occutards). . . . The Tocquevillian account of revolution fits the Arab Spring, the eruptions in eastern Europe in the 1980s, and the collapse of the Soviet Union to a ‘T (Gee, which democracy did Tocqueville write about? I can’t remember, Australian maybe).
Huh, why he could almost be talking about America.
The article goes on to say this
Then, the crucial question is whether those in charge have the nerve to try to crush the rebellion and whether their underlings will follow orders. If the powers that be are hesitant, ambivalent, or divided, if their underlings are fed up, things can very easily come apart
China, remember, he’s not talking about the gov’t taxing us to fucking death while giving the money to their supporters and trying to take away all our guns and us saying, “Fuck you.” He’s not Bob Owens after all.
RTWT. It’s a good article, about China and America, it also shows that while we’re pretty fucked, the rest of the world is exponentially more fucked.
Next, we have our fine, media betters just doing their job, attacking gov’t officials who say stuff they think is ridiculous.
In this case Terry Moran (of CNN, I think) is attacking Rand Paul (of Kentucky, I think) for attacking Obama (of America, I think). As Ace notes, it’s a question of standards. Rand Paul doesn’t meet them. We’re seeing the playbook against that stupid, snowbilly Palin being used against others now. And recall who helped those attacks, the establishment GOP. They don’t like upstarts anymore than the Dems do.
Now let’s point and laugh at NY.
First, we have this high-larity, via Say Uncle. This is an onion of hilarity, there are so many layers with each being even funnier than the last. Well, except the last one. That’s less funny than the previous one but more funny than the one before that.
In the first layer we have the Dems vehemently and furiously denying they want to take all guns as they’re spreading their plans to take all guns and/or harass all legal gun owners. Sorta funny, but so predictable it’s the “why did the chicken cross the road” of the endily funny.
Then we have the fact that they shared it with a Republican, obviously secure in the knowledge that said Republican was of like mind and knew to keep stuff from the hoi polloi. Pretty funny but it loses something as it’s not new to anybody paying attention and seems new to those who don’t.
Then we have that they’re arguing it out in the papers. I mean, they’re talking about keeping the people from knowing about their position on taking all guns by calling the Repblican a meanie for wanting to tell people they want to take all guns. That’s the funniest part for me as I get to watch “journalists” say stuff that boils down to, “Well, he changed his position because of the polls and I think this new pander will work well with the voters. Don’t you likeminded, elitist douchetool?“
Then, we have another “journalist” doing his job; protecting Democrats. The headline of the piece is that the Dems want the Republican to stop talking about their secret memo, but there is this in the article
But if Republican Assemblyman Steve McLaughlin is to be believed…
See, so even though the Dems admit the contents of the memo by the very act of trying to stop its publication, this piece of….’journolist’, has the fucking balls to write that.
Layers folks, it’s the suggestive sell of the Funniest End of Civilization Ever, it enhances your experience.
Next in NY (and journalistic malpractice) hilarity, we see that NY has very high natural gas prices just in time for the global worming caused extra-freezing conditions (formerly called, “Winter”). The article blames all manner of things, from Bush to cold to evil genies (I may not have read the article), but it doesn’t blame the one thing that might have been responsible for not providing more natural gas to NY.
The state fracking ban. You see, NY doesn’t need more natural gas or more jobs, they’re doing fine thank you and NY politicians smugly preening for the cameras over a totally bullshit enviro-wacking “concern” is far more important.
Last but not least,we have Day 2 of Lemur King ignoring his people’s murderous rampagedity. Not just ignoring the issue, but taunting all right-thinking people!!!!!! Recall that his murderous subjects attacked a child, and he writes a light-hearted post about his child!
Remember, don’t link him or talk about him or go to his site. And you should click through and tell him I said that!
This seems appropriate for some reason.
If you live in PA, you know about the HUGE fucking gun shows that get put on at the Farm Show Complex in Harrisburg, except perhaps this time. If you haven’t heard, Reed Exhibitors, a British firm, runs and manages the Eastern Sports and Outdoor Show, and oddly enough, SHOT Show too. But for whatever fucking reason, they decided to bar ARs and other politically incorrect firearms at the show, or even graphic presentations thereof (as in, no literature, no t-shirts, fucking nothing).
First, lemme say, this is what happens when you let Brits run gun or gun related companies, they ALWAYS sell out at some point, that’s what happened with Smith & Wesson when they sold out to the Clintons, they were owned by Tompkins PLC. Limeys don’t get the gun thing, they just don’t. Thankfully, a proper ‘Murican company bought S&W and revived it, Tomkins had to fire sale S&W for a small fraction of what they bought it for.
Anyway, bunch of companies and hunting and outdoor and shooting names and celebs are bailing on the ESOS show, Cabelas was probably the first of the big names to bail, but more and more are, and today, Ruger and Smith & Wesson have announced they’re bailing.
I will say, on the face of it, it’s most important to have the big names pull their support of ESOS, but we NEED to be aware of and support the little companies that are bailing out of the ESOS show, this is an annoyance to a Cabelas or S&W or Ruger (though certainly it costs them too, I’m NOT dismissing that), but being forced to make a decision like this is heavily damaging to a small company, many of which don’t even sell firearms. They deserve recognition for defending the Second.
I do need to get me some Rugers, I’d love to get my hands on a 77/.357, since I’ve got a substantial pile of .38 and .357, but I need to get a GP-100 and SP-101, as well as the older Six series. But not till after I get my fill of Colts and Smith & Wessons. And that’s gonna take a while.
First up, we have Leadership that’s a failure.
Headlining our failed “leaders”, we have everybody’s favorite Mitch McConnell! Give him a hand.
Once again we have him demanding, DEMANDING!!!!!, a budget. I’m sure the Dems are just a shaking in their shoes over his threat.
Republicans have repeatedly attacked Senate Democrats for failing to produce a budget.
Yes, and then what did they do each and every time?
Both parties avoided a government shutdown in December by passing an omnibus spending bill for 2012.
See, that’s what you and I would call a budget, but McConnell allows the Dems to do this so they, the GOP and Minitrue can say it’s not a budget to keep the stupid, unhelpful, tea party (terrorist) minority that’s taken over the country from knowing how bloated it is.
Which means this scares the shit out of me.
And the email pledges that McConnell will oppose any extended gun-control measures
He’s up for re-election in 2014, so I have high hopes, but I also worry that he’ll try to make it get done quickly so people will forget by next year.
In Lebanon we see a failure to provide any leadership is having Hezbollah fill the void.
Salafi Sunni Sheikh Ahmad al-Assir accused Hezbollah of distributing weapons and drugs to Sidon youngsters as well as training them to fight on their side.
Speaking of feckless GOP “leadership”, this is a failure in leadership. I mean, they’re providing leadership, but I call it a hugh, fucking stick in my eye FAIL!
the House GOP Leadership made an important twist in their plan to pass a short-term increase in the debt ceiling. Rather than increase the debt ceiling by a few hundred billion dollars, buying them time for further talks on the budget, they have opted to “suspend” the debt ceiling.
Okay, so what does that mean?
Upon enactment, the government’s borrowing authority would be unlimited until May. Presumably, the government could borrow trillions in this window, providing either the markets or the Fed would meet the new supply of debt.
Man, they sure stood up to Obama on that whole debt thing, just like we were promised!!!!!
Next, we have a failing leader ((non-sarcastic) Yay!!!!) and they’re wondering who will take over.
There are two main guys under Chavez, Cabello who’s in charge of the military wing of Chavez’ dictatorship, and Maduro who’s in charge of the civilian side, I’d suggest that means, secret police. Hmmm, a civil war between the secret police and the military. Should be interesting. It’s not as if Venezuala provides anything important on the international stage like iPods or Xboxes.
So far they’re all buddy-buddy, and are showing their strength by going after an evil, right-wing TV station that, against the law, read a part of the Constitution over the air that Chavez didn’t like (Huh, I hope Obama isn’t reading that article).
In another failing leader, we have bombs going off in Damascus. Yay! Terrorists blowing up terrorist supporters! That’s win/win.
Here we have a man who’s not so much a failure as a leader as that he fails to understand how to provide leadership but others take up the slack and things get done, he doesn’t really understand how or why, but he knows he’s great. Can you guess who? That’s right, Teleprompter Jesus himself, Obama and his amazing skittle-shitting, unicorns for everyone budget!
A mini-fisking, I’ll be in bold.
The President’s 2013 Budget is built around the idea that our country does best when everyone gets a fair shot (sociallism), does their fair share (more socialism), and plays by the same rules (except his supporters and most especially his administration). We must transform our economy from one focused on speculating, spending, and borrowing (capitalism) to one constructed on the solid foundation of educating (teacher unions), innovating (green boondoggles, Solyndra writ large), and building (the infrastructure he keeps talking about but never gets around to using those $trillions to actually do anything about). That begins with putting the Nation on a path to living within our means (that ship sailed, we elected you, but no Obama speech is complete without a bunch of howlers) – by cutting wasteful spending (the military), asking all Americans to shoulder their fair share(tax increases for everyone!), and making tough choices on some things we cannot afford (the military), while keeping the investments we need to grow the economy (food stamps, welfare) and create jobs unemployment). The Budget targets scarce federal resources to the areas critical to growing the economy and restoring middle-class security (welfare, food stamps, unemployment): education and skills for American workers (teacher unions), innovation and research and development, clean energy (Solyndra), and infrastructure (it’s like a tic, he just adds “and infrastructure” to every pronouncement. Heaven help us when he focuses on jobs again).
Now that’s leadership! If you consider screwing me and paying off his supporters leadership I guess.
There is some good news, Americans are noticing that their “leaders” are failing to provide leadership and are only looting the fisc.
that when Americans were asked whether they had a positive view of the country, only 39% agreed.
Everybody is pissed at everybody else for voting for idiots and assholes is how I read that.
Dutch leaders decided that they hated a huge part of the reason for the tourism they see, so they decreed that coffee-shops would only sell pot to Dutch. It ends in Fail!
Many Dutch mayors, particularly in the main cities, oppose the new law and do not intend to enforce it. They say it will cause more problems because foreigners will purchase their drugs from dealers on the streets. As a result, over half of all coffeeshops say they will continue to sell soft drugs to foreigners.
If half say they will, I’d bet more are not willing to admit they’re going to ignore the law, and if the mayors are not in favor, the police won’t be in favor so another leadership Fail!.
We’ll end on a somber note, a most heinous failure of leadership.
Two lemurs on the loose have been captured early Monday morning after police say they received a report that the lemurs attacked a 2-year-old girl in South Florida.
I feel that this incident reflects very poorly on the very top of lemur society, the king himself!
Now more than ever, the lemurs are crying out for a revolution!
And people wonder why I boycott him.
Update: I updated this a little to fix mistakes and insert words I forgot to insert.
Important Update (not like that slacker one)
Can I get a Heh?
Eric found it. 3 million views, it’s probably old but still pretty good. Except for the Glock part. Needs more 1911s.
You know Kathleen Parker is going to lay an egg when she starts off like this:
Unlike many who recently have joined the debate about gun rights, I have a long history with guns, which I proffer only in the interest of preempting the “elitist, liberal, swine, prostitute, blahblahblah” charge.
“Prostitute”? Oh boy…
She goes on to relate the fact that her daddy was, by modern standards, a “gun nut”. Then she meanders though highlights in the history of guns, starting with guns as the tool of the white oppressors, to a freedom cry of civil rights activists trying to defend themselves. She appeals to the authority of a late-60s era Ronald Reagan, who it should be noted was substantially less conservative than his 80s incarnation. She casually juxtaposes the black civil rights activists against the NRA’s lack of interest in constitutional issues until the late 70s. (Wink-wink, nudge-nudge.) Never mind that this change in focus had nothing to do with racial civil rights, or that the NRA had previously been a sportsmen’s organization and wasn’t in the lobbying business.
“The degree of one’s allegiance to principle apparently depends mainly on who is holding the gun.”
Having slandered those who bitterly cling to the Second Amendment, she concludes by begging the question of what constitutes reasonable gun control.
This still leaves open the loophole of private sales that do not require background checks, which President Obama wants to close. We will hear more about this in coming weeks, but the call meanwhile to ban assault weapons or limit magazines in the wake of the horrific mass murder of children and others at Sandy Hook Elementary in Connecticut is hardly draconian. It won’t solve the problem of mentally disturbed people exacting weird justice from innocents, but it might limit the toll. Having to stop one’s rampage to reload rather breaks the spell, or so one would imagine.
One also imagines that the old Reagan would say there’s no reason a citizen needs an assault weapon or a magazine that can destroy dozens of people in minutes. He would certainly be correct and, in a sane world, possibly even electable.
This is a classic example of question-begging. Kathleen Parker gets to decide what’s sane and reasonable because,… just because. I mean, she’s sane and reasonable…
Parker’s column is noteworthy not because I happen to disagree with her –there are oodles of columns like that– but because of her horrible writing. There is not even the hint of a rational argument in it. It is comprised only of sophistry and gimmicks.
