Friday Freakout

Friday Freakout

 

Todays Friday Freakout, consists of some of the things that irritate me…

 

Why whenever some douche-bag terrorist commits some act of terrorism, do herds of people rush out to tell us, John Q. Public, that it is not all Muslims, but only an extreme few?  Assuming we forget the fact that the average person, does NOT run people down, then jump out of their vehicle with a very large cutting implement to attempt to remove the head of their victim, we kinda get that not all Muslims do that.  DUH.  I still don’t want to here about it, from some whiny liberal prick, who has never left the country.

 

When some gets killed with a gun, statists always have to talk about how gun control would have saved their life.  Where the hell are they when there is a car accident?  People killed by bullets are more valuable than those run over by automobiles?

 

We all know that politicians are corrupt, normal people don’t look at politics and think to themselves “hey, that looks like fun, dealing with lawyers, politicians, media whores, and general cling-ons”  [Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy, top of our list of things to do, right up there with wrestling a bear, kissing a cobra, and getting in the general vicinity of Kei$ha], still I think all politicians who are caught should be jailed or shot, something severe no more retirements in disgrace, because I don’t think the lads at the country club give a shit about their disgrace.

 

If you are offended by this post, sucks to be you, I’m in pain today, and rather grouchy.  My puppy is still running about with an e-collar on (which in case you don’t know is not a cool electronic device, nooo it is a cone, and it looks like it really sucks to have on, poor baby, photo later).

Tuesday Random Thoughts

Here are some random thoughts for today….

 

– Have you ever seen what drugs do to people?  (If you haven’t you need to bing what does meth do to people under images)  Seriously they could be zombies, at least looks-wise.

 

– So much going in the world but nothing I want to comment on, right now, but several stories that are interesting…the young women held captive, the horrible stories coming out of the Kermit Gosner trial, the Syrian situation, the Boston attack and of course Benghazi.  Well maybe just a few…

— Wow, those 3 women after 10 years, that is crazy, glad they are safe.

— I am speechless about the stories around the Gosner trial, I will probably write a post on it, after some more contemplation (for words not the thoughts).

— Syria, looks to be getting nastier, with allegations of chemical use, but it looks like the world will sit this one out.

— More twists and turns in this terrorist attack, this case fascinates me, I think there is much more than what meets the eye, here.

— Benghazi seems to be getting more notice, 8 months late.  Again, another fascinating incident, with more information to find out.

 

– In the next few weeks I will be transitioning to an e-cigarette from real cigarettes so, FUN FUN FUN  😦

Friday Freakout (5 Apr 13)

For today’s Friday Freakout I’m going to do something different, it is still essentially freaking out, but in a more organized and dream like fashion….

Let’s say I’m the King of Great Britain…I know the monarch has no power, but in this dream I’m the man and I have the power…(kind of scary, I know), what would I do…

Nice Crown, right?

Nice Crown, right?

1.)  Offer to take the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan off America’s hands (we all know President Obama doesn’t want a carrier named Reagan), and rename it the HMS Margaret Thatcher or HMS Iron Lady. :D.

HMS Margret Thatcher (formerly the USS Ronald Reagan)

2)  Make Rowan Williams the Kings envoy to all creatures great and small, based at Sky Blu.

3) Turn the East London Mosque into a Bbq shop, with the very best in Islamic stand up comedy.

BBQ

4)  Close down all courts, except Royal Courts, operating under English Common Law, Scots Law, or Northern Irish Law.

5)  Require all asylum seekers to learn English, swear Allegiance to King and country, and serve Great Britain in some fashion.

6.)  Stop all foreign aid, review who it is going to, and what benefits it is bringing, and see if that aid could be better used in Britain.

foreignaid

7.)  Revamp the welfare system where someone can NOT earn more doing nothing than he/she can working.

8.)  Revamp the education system, so actually learning is stressed instead of some useless crap that no one every uses, but sounds good on paper is taught.

 

9.)  Form a council with the best minds, chaired by none other than Dickiebo, to find and eliminate government fraud, waste, abuse, and stupidity.

 

I know I made a couple of lame jokes, but overall this would be a good thing…I would hate to see what historically has been a force for good in the world (Great Britain) go down the drain due to nothing more than inaction on good people’s parts.  OH, and one more thing….LEAVE THE E.U (that is actually #1).  Give me a break, that costs Great Britain way to much money for way to little benefit, not only for Britons but for Europeans.

 

You Might Be A Statist, If….

You Might Be A Statist, If….

 

1.  You give a speech about the dangers of ‘assault weapons’ and then go and buy one.  Mark E. Kelly

 

2.  You believe “Government shouldn’t tell you whom to marry.”, but you’re OK with government bans on soda.

 

3.  You believe poor people “don’t have the ability to take care of themselves,” as well as wealthy people do.  Michael Bloomberg

 

4.  You are OK, with Unions outsourcing picketers [link]

 

5.  Your understanding of basic facts are a little weak.  “A zebra does not change its spots.” Al Gore

 

My apologies to Jeff Foxworthy.

Second, if anyone knows how to add a link, without all of the junk (see above, i.e. I wanted to name that Idiot Alert) please let me know.  🙂

 

Third, Debbie Wasserman Schultz has completely lost her mind (not really a new thing but still, I do feel really bad that her $100k a year go-fers can’t afford a burger because it now costs $7.50 instead of $4)  http://www.bizpacreview.com/2013/03/20/wasserman-schultz-whines-my-poor-aides-cant-afford-a-good-meal-56620#.UUoQqiPmyUQ.facebook

SUPERBOWL Sunday

SB

San Francisco 49ers

San Francisco 49ers

Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore Ravens

Today is Superbowl Sunday, Superbowl XLVII, The San Francisco 49ers play the Baltimore Ravens.  If you are a football fan, you already know that this battle of the brothers will be epic.  If you are not a fan of American football, allow me to give you some of the great details, the head coaches of the 2 teams are brothers, and this is the first time in Superbowl history were siblings have coached opposing teams, Raven star linebacker Ray Lewis has already announced that this will be his last game, Alicia Keys will be singing the national anthem, and Beyonce will be performing at half-time and a slew of other events, some that happened yesterday (Saturday) and most that will be today.

For those of you more sports minded, this will be a great match-up, the 49ers are known for the offense (led by rookie signal caller QB Colin Kaepernick, who took over for the injured QB Alex Smith), but they also have a aggressive talented defense (headlined by All-Pro LB Patrick Willis), the Ravens known for their defense (led by safety Ed Reed) has long been considered elite, but the Raven offense is what got them to the Superbowl, QB Joe Flacco, has been near perfect in the post-season, and HB Ray Rice is one of the best runners in the league.

If you want some quick psycho-analysis, while John (Ravens) is the older brother, Jim (49ers) played QB, and is known to be the more passionate of the two, and was known in his playing days as a cerebral player, who made the most of his rather pedestrian physical skills.  Advantage:  Jim.  [as a side note, I added this paragraph because the wife, mentioned a story she saw on the news, so after a 40 minute discussion on who is at the advantage, here is our collaborative contribution, which is awesome because Jim is a middle child, and as all middle children know, middle children rule, especially compared to oldest children  😀 ]

For my personal pick, I really like the Ravens better, but I think the 49ers combination of Kaepernick, Gore, and arguably the best line-backing foursome in history (as a side note:  I have long felt that the position of linebacker has been declining in importance, other than rush-backers, this would go a long way to proving it one way or the other), is just too much for them,

San Francisco 31, Baltimore 24.

The Truth About ‘Assault Weapons’

The term ‘Assault weapons’ was coined by gun control supporters, as a catch-all phrase to describe any and all weapons they have targeted for banning, it is not an actual type of weapon, while it is similar to the term assault rifle, it is not the same thing.

M-16a2 Fire Select Switch (SAFE/SEMI/AUTO)

M-16a2 Fire Select Switch (SAFE/SEMI/AUTO)

An assault rifle has a selective fire switch on it, or in a few cases the ability to fire multiple rounds with one (harder than normal) pull of the trigger.  The ‘assault weapons’ do not they fire one bullet each time the trigger is pulled.  All fully automatic weapons, and all select fire weapons capable of firing “burst” (multiple rounds with one trigger pull) are tightly controlled under legislation dating back to 1934 in the US.

Some History:

Before firearms, people fought and killed each other with rocks, sticks, and basically anything that they could get their hands on, including their hands, this hasn’t really changed, but some genius thought, “Hey, if I throw this rock, I can kill that dude from a distance, and I stand a better chance of not getting hurt”, after that day, we have been trying to kill each other from a distance, using bows, spears, and everything else you can throw.

Then some genius invented a big metal stick with a hole in it, which when stuffed with some really cool powder and a projectile, could kill people, a gun.  The first guns were not very good.  Rifles (which added groves on the inside of a barrel to make the round or bullet rotate) came about to increase the accuracy of firearms.

Machine guns fired rounds very quickly but were really heavy.  Since firing rifle bullets (which are big long bullets) quickly required heavy-duty equipment to fire, some genius decided to make a weapon that would fire pistol bullets (which are short, fat, and slow) quickly, using a fairly light, small weapon.

As technology improved, it was decided that a weapon could be made using bigger bullets than a pistol but not quite as big as a rifle…. an Assault Rifle, it could fire those medium-sized bullets (known as intermediate cartridges), very quick, and still be light enough so some poor sod, could hump it around all day and night.  Some of those poor sods got out of the military and thought, “I really miss Ol’Bessy”, and went out and tried to buy a similar weapon, but since machine guns are banned, the closest they could get were rifles, that look like an assault rifle but can’t fire automatic or burst.

These very scary looking weapons are the ones that some people are trying to ban, but since they fire medium size bullets instead of the big long ones, they actually do less damage, and since humping one of these big scary guns is too conspicuous, few crimes are committed with them.  Handguns, which tend to be small and easy to hide are the weapon of choice for most criminals, and the weapon of choice for most mass murders.

So if you want to protect your home with a weapon, and you decide to use a firearm, and go to your local gun store, don’t ask for an assault weapon, ask for a rifle or a handgun.  You can even get rifles that look like the infamous AK-47 or the much beloved AR-15/M-16.
