First of all, before anything else, my prayers and sadness go out to those who were so stupidly attacked in Colorado Thursday night. At this point, I cannot, will not speculate on the why. That is later, after some healing for all.
Now, back to the point of this discourse. Within probably 30 seconds of being notified of the tragedy in Aurora, Mayor the King of New York City Bloombug wanted to know what POTUS and Mittens planned to do about “assault weapons” and the Brady Bunch was actually out before Bloomberg screaming for more gun control. When do they get it: after they personally get to dial 911 for a cop because an armed person is holding them hostage and find out the 911 person will ask 20 questions, minimum, before deciding to notify one of the local donut munchers to get out of his car and help? Or maybe after they are shot by some crazy?
Colorado is a concealed carry state for responsible gun owners. Best guess is that which ever theater parlor was showing Bat Man has a sign forbidding legally authorized, responsible citizens who have a carry permit to enter the theater while armed. Only wackos, punks and crazies are allowed to carry and kill.

POTUS Obama the Impotent Pantywaist declared that all of us who have built our own business, or improved the fortunes of a corporation, didn’t do it. We were only taking unfair advantage of all the wonderful things the Government Bureaucrats have rained down upon us. So let’s raise taxes on all those “unfair advantage takers” and give the money to those poor soles that for the most part, choose to exist on welfare and food stamps instead of working and contributing to the betterment of our society as a whole.
USDA is busy interfering with pet owners. In conjunction with HSUS, they are currently conspiring to stamp out all pet ownership and breeding. As far as they are concerned, the only good pet is a stuffed one made in China.
Two Seattle men were detained U.S. Customs when they tried to smuggle …chocolate… into the United States. These menaces to society were trying to bring [gasp] Kinder Eggs into our fair country. Everyone knows those particular treats have little choking hazards inside them: choking hazards disguised as toys! And the worst part is, these confectionery terrorists were going to give these chocolates to… their… kids.*
POTUS Obama is substituting regulatory burdens in place of some tax increases. According to reports, he as increased regulatory burdens on companies and individuals by more that 400% over what President Bush foisted off on us.
On the conservative front, I am getting a lot of mail whining about the press picking on the tea party. And one even sent an article titled “here is your pro-gun story”
In my mail box, the delete key works just fine for the idiots on both sides of the fence.
National and Local elections are in November. If you do not get out and vote to retire and expel as many of the reprobates now in office, you will only get what you deserve.
Ending on a more cheerful note, Happy Birthday to me. Not only is to my birthday, it is also National Junk Food Day (seriously, I a not kidding, heard it on Fox Business last night.) Today, you can eat Junk Food completely guilt-free. My wife said something about a perfect fit, a celebration of what I have participated in on a regular basis for many a moon.
