A veritable cornucopia of bad and occasionally lewd pun opportunities.

The next time bubu stops by to tell us NOBODY is talking about gun confiscation just refer him to this lovely example from our neighbors to the north in Oregon.

Good rule of thumb;
Bubu says what lefties want people to think they believe,
Dudu says what they really do.

.278 and 22 HR per year?

Danube of Thought

From the Oregon legislation:

This 2013 Act being necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety, an emergency is declared to exist, and this 2013 Act takes effect on its passage.

Keep in mind the "rational basis" test. This law, if enacted, is going down.

Rick Ballard

Ignatz,

My mind keeps trying to tie the Oregon gun grab to the "shoot on sight" order issued by LA security forces on Dorner. The indiscriminate slaughter occasioned by the shoot on sight order did not get very much media coverage while media immediately pimped the fact the last security officer shot by Dorner left a widow with a child. It will be interesting to see if there is any follow through on the 'tears for security forces' meme.

I find it very regrettable that the authors of such legislation will not be at risk of dieing during attempts to enforce it.

narciso

Yes, that's unlike the language of the South African FireArms Act of 2000, mostly boilerplate, but in light of Herr Pistorious, worthy of note.

AliceH

DoT: They seem to put that exact language into lots of bills. With a 10 second review, I found it in a bill requiring collection of tolls from bicyclists if tolls are collected on motorists, a bill to define who and how the SoS must designate state voting agencies, and more.

Frau Steingehirn

@11:29- is that a paper teleprompter the preezy is using?

maryrose

DOT:
There is no emergency and yes that bill is going down. These legislators are real idiots. Where are all the qualified, normal good people to run for office and protect us from this knee jerk idiocy?

Rick Ballard

Frau,

I believe the President and Vice-President ran across a two syllable word in that memo and are puzzling it out together.

Frau Steingehirn

My eighty year old next door neighbor is a naturalized citizen from Canada. He has family members in Canada, the UK and South Africa. Three years ago, his older brother in South Africa, living next to a national park, was tied to a tree and tortured until he told what valuables he had and where they were. Of course, there wasn't much to be had but the man was tortured to death. He could have used a gun for protection.

narciso

The problem with tools, is they are supposed to be useful'


http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/local/trayvon-martin/os-george-zimmerman-crump-hearing-20130222,0,4304478.story

this is why, I would have thought an indiscriminate use of a weapon like Herr Pastorius displayed would be more strongly sanctioned,

Frau Steingehirn

Rick, you had me go back and look at the picture of the confederacy of dunces, so I noticed the carpy Obama administration sign on the wall. If there is ever again a candidate with his own set of logos, that person should be immediately disqualified. It's disgusting.

jimmyk

"They seem to put that exact language into lots of bills. With a 10 second review, I found it in a bill requiring collection of tolls from bicyclists if tolls are collected on motorists, a bill to define who and how the SoS must designate state voting agencies, and more."

Great find, Alice. Keep on googlin'.

There should be a "cry wolf" rule of how many emergencies a legislature can declare. This takes Rahm's crisis-opportunity thing a step further. Make everything out to be a crisis, then take advantage.

narciso

Actually that's the ARRA 'stimulus' logo, representative of what Sheriff Joe, told us, he would keep an eye out for.

I was getting 504 unable to reach gateway errors with Yahoo, so actually that last search was via McAfee Safesearch, which also uses yahoo but doesn't make a fuss about it. :)

AliceH

How cool would it be if they had to apply the same scrutiny for "emergency bills" as required of citizens claiming self-defensive?

Someone's auto-correct obviously infiltrated my laptop.

pagar

"his 2013 Act being necessary for the immediate preservation of the public peace, health and safety, an emergency is declared to exist"

IMO, based on the damage they do to America,
a state of emergency should be declared the moment any Democrat is elected to any public office.

After reading narciso's 12:54 on the GZ/TM case want to venture how he will walk in a SYG hearing much less a trial by jury? I know these are all preliminaries but it seems to me that even the defense is acting desperatedly and don't seem to have any kind of agressive plan to bring justice to GZ.

GZ better get use to more isolation every day.

Iggy,

Interestingly, graphene has been around and used in a lot of composite applications. But this is why Republicans are so much anti-science because most of the good stuff is accidental anyway:) Who needs research? Another drain on the budget.

When I heard they were selling it I thought the same thing. Why not buy it? It might increase the chances of repubs running for office in Massachusetts actually winning.

jimmyk

"If I read her right I believe she is yahooing."

That was a lower case 'googlin', in furtherance of the effort to make Google lose its trademark.

The battery thing sounds intriguing, but I always figure there's a lot of hype to these stories in an attempt to get backers and funding.

Going out to dinner tonight with my husband's sisters and brother to "The Harp" Any suggestions as to what would be good to order?

I think Clarice suggested we buy the Globe for $1 (probably fair market value) the other day. It's a mystery why conservatives, or even just good capitalists, can't take over these companies when the libs make a hash of their balance sheets.

I agree. The Worcester Telegram is also for sale. I had a long talk with one of the Telegram photographer's at the 2nd amendment rally earlier today. He said they have no offers at this point that he is aware of, but the paper is earning 5x what the NY Times set as the baseline goal.

The rally was very very very cold. I thought my bones were going to crumble. I carried a US flag. It blows my mind to see how many people (mostly young) will give the finger to the flag.

Jack is Back

jimmyk,

Could it be that most conservatives have a more experienced understanding of business economics and know a dud when they see one (ala Maurice Taylor's analysis of the French tire maker?).

Fallling circulation + diminishing ad revenue + union contracts and pension plan liability = losers! Let a bunch of progs buy it.

Captain Hate

maryrose, I don't think we've been there so I have no idea what fine Irish fare you should choose. If JiB is around, I'll be sampling Orval Trappist Ale tonight.

I have no idea why CBS has chosen to feature an SEC basketball game, which is unsurprisingly horrible.

jimmyk

JiB, depends how much of that is really the result of the lefty managment skillz and remediable. Seems like News Corp/WSJ does better, just like Fox vs CNN. Substituting propaganda for news has a cost in the marketplace.

jimmyk

Meant to include Henry in that last response. I don't know if the union stuff is really a killer or not. Why not buy it and try to break the union, or demand concessions?

AliceH

If this is the menu for The Harp that you are going to, maryrose, I'd be go with Shepherd's pie for the main course, and the Guinness ice cream sundae for dessert.

Not a lot of Irishy food on there, as a whole.

AliceH

errr, menu.

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Conservatives need one of the three alphabet networks if they wish to rectify the MSM's status as cheerleaders for Washington DC State, also known affectionately as ol' FU.

Alternatively, next time they're in charge of congress and the WH they could gut NPR and PBS and make them house organs of the Republican Party.
I'll wager the lefties will suddenly discover privatization has its merits and in any event gov funding of any media is a pretty lame idea.

sbw

Be careful. Newsweek was overpriced at a dollar because of pension liabilities, etc. Now they don't even print.

Disaggregating newspapers into local, regional, and national, its the national that has lost its purpose.

I would sooner discover who owns the local weeklies surrounding Boston and contribute useful content to them.

Remember, news puts information in context to help you better plan your future. News, contrary to the NY Times, does not lead you with an inaccurate map to do what the publisher thinks you should do.

Extraneus

There is a lot of hype Jimmy. Supercapacitors have their advantages and disadvantages. Yes, they charge up faster than batteries, but they self-discharge at a much faster rate, and as they discharge the voltage across them reduces. They also can't currently compete with batteries in terms of stored energy per unit weight. They're good for specialized applications, but not battery replacements, at least not yet.

They're dangerous, too, since they discharge immediately when shorted out, like capacitors and unlike batteries.

narciso

I wondered about that, well it sounded too good to be true, like the ARC reactor,

sbw-

In the USSR and behind the Iron Curtain the media were used to invalidate memory.

I would argue that is precisely what the MSM now does and what the Common Core as it is actually intended to be implemented is intended to do.

I mentioned on an earlier thread that zuboff's subsequent book mentions numerous names I recognized. What I did not mention is how many of them were tied to Facing History which is really designed to be moral character devt.

All of the references to using primary materials need to be filtered through those primary materials being selected for their propaganda value. Think Rachel Carson or even Paul Ehrlich.

Laura

Ah RSE, the AP US history curriculum comes to mind as a very effective use of primary sources to completely destroy a belief in foundational American values.

I think that's a good bet, JiB,

Tenth Circuit on concealed carry:

"The Second Amendment's guarantee of a right to bear arms does not extend to the right to carry a concealed weapon in public, a federal appeals court in Denver has ruled.

"'We conclude that the carrying of concealed firearms is not protected by the Second Amendment . . .' Justice Carlos Lucero wrote on behalf of a three-judge panel of the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.

"Lucero cited case law dating to the 1800s that put restrictions on walking around in public with a gun.

"I'n light of our nation's extensive practice of restricting citizens' freedom to carry firearms in a concealed manner, we hold that this activity does not fall within the scope of the Second Amendment's protections'" he wrote in the ruling issued Friday."

"Veterans Receive Letters From VA Prohibiting Ownership or Purchase of Firearms"
From Gateway Pundit on Friday, 2/22/13

http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2013/02/shock-report-veterans-receive-letters-from-va-prohibiting-ownership-or-purchase-of-firearms/

The article doesn't contain much information WRT who receives the letters (e.g. soldiers with a claim of PSTD) or whether they are being sent to all military vets. Your views?

Extraneus

Is it possible to "bear" arms in the sense of giving birth to them?

Ignatz Ratzkywatzky

Well lets see; CA just banned open carry and now concealed carry is not a right.
Seems like one or the other has to give or we'll be bare arms.

AliceH

I think that concealed carry judgment related to a guy with a permit from a state (Washington?) with no reciprocity in the state he wanted to conceal carry (Colorado). CO has reciprocity / honors CCW permits from other states only if they accept/honor those granted in CO.

rse

Laura-given what the College Board tried to do to World History that is precisely what I expected. It is consistent with the sample curricula I have seen too.

I think David Coleman went from heading up Common Core to being Pres of CB precisely to get the AP courses in line with creating the desired false beliefs and sense of grievance.

Barbara, this site explained the VA letter a little better IMO.

http://thisainthell.us/blog/?p=34265

I felt better about the subject after reading it, but IMO, there are some real anti veteran people working for the VA. It is also,IMO, much harder for the Veteran to win when appeals are needed to overcome a VA decision than it needs to be.


Barbara

Thanks, pagar. The link you posted is very helpful and has cleared up a lot of my questions.

Jim Rhoads a/k/a vjnjagvet

It is also,IMO, much harder for the Veteran to win when appeals are needed to overcome a VA decision than it needs to be.

It is IMO too, Pagar. The sad fact is that the quality of the "veterans' representatives" is, to be charitable, highly variable. However, there are many who are excellent, and thanks to one of them I was able to overturn an erroneous VA determination on my disability benefits without resort to the appeals process.

If you know anyone who gets an adverse determination from the VA, tell them to contact their local representative of VFW or similar organization.

Just got back from seeing Lincoln and all I can say is wow! What an incredible perspective and rendering of a critical time in our history.

As I sat and watched the interplay between the different factions and their reasons and the consequences and Lincoln's steadfast commitment, it brought home to me the greatness of the man and of our country. David Strathairn and Tommy Lee Jones, and for that matter, the entire cast were magnificent.

As we were leaving, I said to Querida that three of the Oscar nominees are really sort of America-only films; Zero Dark and Argo are the other two.

I find it quite odd in light of the Left's antipathy to our history. There was no glory for Carter in the Teheran affair, and Zero Dark has the Left in a tizzy.

So if this is true, then how can a good Stalinist in Hollywood vote for any of them.

Querida noted at lunch after, looking out over the ocean, that the Democrats still are oppressing the African American population after all of these years. It has been nonstop BS ever since 1865.
