A MRA Take on Aurora

JohnTheOther: the Aurora heroes aren’t heroes. KEYWORDS: calculus of death, vagina, drug addled slut « man boobz:
 "Those three men are not heroes, they’re just dead. The calculus of death, where one life is traded in celebration for another by preference of a vagina, is pathological and regressive. It must be recognized as the sickness it is. Those who lionized these men, whose fatal and unexamined instinct led to self-destruction; those who held them up as a heroic example to follow, are cordially invited to go first — or to go fuck themselves."

A Conservative on the problem with Romney

Is Being a Gaffe Machine Romney’s Main Problem? | The American Conservative: "Part of the explanation is that Romney is simply a klutz, that despite a nearly preternatural ability to make money for himself and his partners, he lacks political instincts. But there’s something else: Romney–who was probably the most mainstream of serious contenders for the Republican nomination–doesn’t understand how much American Republican politics has gone off the rails. He might think that the Tory leaders of Britain are pining for Churchillian rhetoric and a restoration of neoconservative warmongering, all under the guise of American “leadership.” But this is simply not the case. David Cameron and the British conservatives are far more comfortable with Obama’s policies than with those of George W. Bush. Among our allies (save, of course, Israel) there was little enthusiasm for the Iraq War, the continuing war in Afghanistan, and there is none for a war with Iran. Yet for reasons to me unfathomable, Romney has encouraged neoconservatives to embed themselves in his campaign, and no doubt, his administration, if there is to be one."

On That Chick-Fil-A Letter

Daily Kos: Chick-Fil-A's latest failed effort to spin backlash from funding hate-groups:
"The thing is a form letter. This is the identical letter sent out by franchise owners John and Cristina Crays of Chick-fil-A Downtown Decatur, GA, also Chicago, IL and apparently elsewhere as well. All that's been changed are details specific to each location.

 So, clearly this is a top-down effort orchestrated by corporate itself to distance individual owners from well, corporate itself. It's an attempt to spin individual stores away from the mess President Cathy has created for the whole chain of 1,600 stores. We're encouraged to not take it out on individual franchises, just keep buying that chicken because they're such nice people."

Bill Kristol On Assault Rifles.

Bill Kristol: People Don't Have a Right to Assault Rifles | Video Cafe:
""People have a right to handguns and hunting rifles," Kristol told Fox News host Chris Wallace. "I don't think they have a right to semi-automatic, quasi-machine guns that can be used to shoot a hundred bullets at a time.""

Since Bill Kristol is wrong about just about everything I have to think that nothing will come of this.

On Mass Murder

Serious question for my faithful readers.

When was the last mass killing that was not accomplished with firearms? I am thinking that it was 9/11 and before that the Oklahoma City bombing?

Anyone still care to say that there is no connection between easy access to guns in this country and mass killings?

On the Lessons of Aurora

Good to see that we learned the right lesson about what needs to be controlled.

Thanks to my old scrabble playing buddy Shihab Salim for the link.

On That Flag House - As A Public Service

I have seen this pic show up on Facebook and around the net. It is usually accompanied by a commentary about how some terrible Liberal Home Owner's Association has banned the display of the American flag.

How can I put this delicately ...

It is transparent BULLSHIT and anyone that didn't have an ax to grind would have seen through it in 2 minutes.

  • There is a federal law that would not allow an HOA to have this kind of a rule. 
  • The Flag House was painted that way to antagonize the local Historical Society. The owner painted another of his houses in the area black to similarly be a pain in their ass..
Now, all you nice folks that "liked" the original Facebook post can go and spread the word. 

Yeah , I crack myself up.

Senator Ron Johnson on Gun Control

Ron Johnson (R-WI) said he would oppose gun control efforts that could be used to “restrict our freedoms” and instead suggested arming “responsible” people to combat “sick, demented individuals who want to do harm.” "

For All Those Brave Concealed Carry Folk

You would have not made a difference. Just fucking admit that concealed carry is to make you feel like you have a larger penis. (and yes I know that some women have concealed carry permits but comment still applies)
