Watch out, Ralphie

I’ve said before that stare decisis is Latin for we’ve stopped thinking or we’ve fucked it up for this long, let’s keep doing that or oops. Honestly, it’s a bullshit concept and has no place among rational people, which is why lawyers and judges use it, I suppose. But this is a good quote: Stare decisis is like gun control. It only affects those who respect the law.
For whatever reason, We Shall Overcomb has set his sights on Paul many times. I think it’s because in the first debate, Paul was the first one to go at him. Trump predicted Paul will quit but Paul says nope. Good. I don’t think Paul will win* but I’m glad to see someone in the GOP going with the libertarian angle. And I think he needs to be in the race for the debates to get that message out. And that’s why I send him money.
* Though, I think it’s still possible. The large GOP field will be a war of attrition. As people drop, their supporters will go somewhere. Maybe Paul can snatch them up. Well, here’s hoping.
I’ve yet to own a gun in that caliber (primarily because taking on a new caliber is expensive) but I’m oddly fascinated by it. And it holds six.
These look pretty cool.
Well, here’s mine:
A Gallup poll says almost half of us view the federal government as an immediate threat to the rights and freedoms of ordinary citizens
Well, what exactly else would be such a threat? Anyone? Bueller. Johnny Jihad is a threat. So is a mass shooter. Or a mugger. But not a single one of them is a threat to my rights and freedoms. Only the government is.
If the powers that be don’t play by the rules, you shouldn’t either.
Much more impressive than the old fill a balloon with coffee creamer thing.
Only the stupid party would view their success as a disaster that needs addressing. Or they’re very unserious people.
This would be better addressed by going after, through the market, the people that air the debates. Parents know that if you ask a kid what he wants for dinner, he’ll say he wants ice cream or candy. If you ask the kid if he wants chicken nuggets or mac and cheese, he’s given the illusion of choice. That’s why there are two parties.
You come home from a bender and realize you’ve been shot. Twice.
I need ideas for steel plates. Go.
So, Trump is under fire for using “code words” to be a sexist. One of those code words is “shrill”. Gosh, I dunno why anyone would say Hillary sounded shrill:
And the code word accusation came from Fox, IIRC (can’t find it now, too lazy to google). Isn’t the code word or dog whistle accusation usually a democrat thing?
The Second Circuit Court of Appeals provided a win for knife rights and the Second Amendment yesterday. The case involved the suit that Knife Rights had filed in New York against DA Cyrus Vance, Jr. The judge in the District Court had dismissed that case in favor of the defendants saying that the plaintiffs did not have standing because they hadn’t identified specific knives. The Second Circuit disagreed in part and remanded the case back to the District Court for the Southern District of New York.
NPR has a piece of nonsense where a guy with suicidal thoughts is worried that visiting someone with a gun may make him finally do it:
“Having tools for suicide completion … makes it way more tempting to attempt or complete suicide,”
tools for suicide completion? You have plenty of those in reach right now. And you haven’t done it yet. So, clearly, we need doctors to ask about guns in the home. Or rope. Or cars and a hose. Or a razor. Or any number of other things.
You know. Some day If you actually take some low light training, you might stop being so damn obtuse about things.
If you ever happen to get to take low light force on force, and see how many times your flash light hand is hit, because people shoot at lights, you might get that you are entirely wrong about what you think is clever mocking.
I agree with that 100%. But that’s likely not to ever be something I’ll have to worry about. Some people do have to train and prepare for that stuff. Some military units, SWAT teams, security details, and countless others. And they all have many things in common. One of those things is that they are not me.
We put lights on all manner of things to make them more convenient or to give them better utility. Here’s my Bosch drill giving away my position to my daughter:
The light is there to make it easier to screw things when the lighting is poor. The light on my gun is there for pretty much the same thing.
Unlike the guys mentioned above who train for that sort of thing, it’s very unlikely that I’ll ever be in a gun fight. And, if I’m in 100 gun fights, it’s unlikely that in any one of them I’d be worried about giving away my position. The aforementioned military units, SWAT teams, security details, and countless others, however, are more likely to have a need to prevent their position from being known. Me, not so much. I’m just a regular Joe. So I’m quite content putting lights and lasers on my carry gun. They’re not going to give away my position. The place where the shooting sounds are coming from will. Also, the place where the cussing, screaming, and maybe the smell of poop because I just shit my pants, having realized I’m in a gun fight will give away my position too.
Are the wookiee-suiters getting prepared in meat space since arguing on the internet hasn’t worked out?
I’ve done that by cutting back on the internet considerably and focusing on the world. However, I didn’t do it consciously.
Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
