On the Gibson Guitar Raids

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Covered their raid before, where the Feds were enforcing Indian law. Seems Martin Guitars uses the same wood but was not raided. I’m sure the two companies’ political affiliation don’t mean a thing. Right?

This is so 1980s tactical it makes me want to shoot a Calico alongside Mel Gibson and Danny Glover: Those chicken wings, though. A lot of guys with no eyes or ears. It is interesting to see how shooting has changed over the years. Via Subguns

Special laws for special people

The Examiner: Lawmakers are scrambling to save the summer concert season from federal agents poised to seize the instruments of rock and country stars because the wood used to make them may have been illegally harvested–and without their knowledge. I dont want the musicians from Nashville who are flying to Canada to perform this summer […]

Where America used to be

Man defending family, shoots a bear. Looking at two years in jail for that. School teacher suspended for show and tell about tools. One tool was a small knife. CA Government driving people off of land. US government raids Gibson to enforce Indian law. But, you know, only selectively enforces US law.

I don’t think this guy is embarrassed by the right thing.

Les Paul has died

Friday, August 14th, 2009

A tribute from Billy Beck, who, frankly, doesn’t say a lot of nice things about any thing. I have a Gibson Les Paul around here somewhere. I haven’t picked it up since probably 2003. Doesn’t even have strings on it. Sits in a closet next to two new packs of strings that I bought two […]

Losing the Base

National Review‘s Kathleen Parker on The Palin Problem: Palin’s narrative is fun, inspiring and all-American in that frontier way we seem to admire. When Palin first emerged as John McCain?s running mate, I confess I was delighted. She was the antithesis and nemesis of the hirsute, Birkenstock-wearing sisterhood ? a refreshing feminist of a different […]

Correct me if I’m wrong

But if the blog accounts are true, both Sarah Palin and Charlie Gibson entered and only Palin left.

Editorial page editor John Gibson of the Nashville Dog Trainer is retiring. His replacement will be Dwight Lewis, who was SayUncle’s Idiot of the Day just last month for 1) being bigoted toward gun owners and 2) accusing the NRA of lying about Obama’s record on guns while he was 3) lying about Obama’s record […]

What media bias?

Saturday, February 9th, 2008

ABC news thinks it’s newsworthy to point out that it’s an election year err no one is calling out for more gun control in light of recent shootings: In light of recent high-profile shootings, Friday’s World News with Charles Gibson featured a report that seemed to lament the absence of public calls for additional gun […]

Beer doesn’t make you hate Joos

Thursday, August 3rd, 2006

I haven’t written about Mel Gibson’s little bout of anti-Semitism because, frankly, I don’t give a shit. I realized long ago there were weirdos and hateful sorts who just hated other people for random reasons. If we were all the same race/religion, someone would hate you because of your size. If we were all the […]

Put the berries down and no one gets hurt

Pesky berry ninjas R. Neal brings to our attention the police reaction to Floridians poaching berries: For berry patrol, each deputy dons green fatigues or camouflage, army boots, a black motorcycle helmet or military “Bonnie Hat,” heavy duty gloves, and a belt with bush necessities: automatic pistol, taser, pepper spray, baton, night-vision goggles, infrared binoculars, […]

Boondoggle, ho!

A couple of times, I’ve mentioned this proposal for a civic arts center in my hometown. I’ve said it’s a waste, won’t be successful and that it basically is a way for taxpayers to foot the bill for Maryville College. Well, it looks like this soon-to-be-known-as-a-colossal-failure is moving forward: The city of Maryville on Tuesday […]

Gimme the money, in the name of Jesus

Mel Gibson’s film distribution company is suing local company Regal Cinemas for $40M. Gibson’s co. claims Regal shortchanged them on The Passion of the Christ.

Well, yeah . . . but you don’t go telling white folk that

Tuesday, February 24th, 2004

A group is criticizing Gibson’s The Passion because Jesus is portrayed by a white man. The group (The New Black Panther Party, which can only lead to its credibility) states that Jesus was black. Well, that whole thing occurred somewhere around northern Africa/the middle east if I recall. I’d say Jesus was more olive skinned. […]
