The Puppy Blender, who by the way is a law professor, has the following suggestion regarding the Omaha mass murder (link thanks to LC Shamalama):

It seems to me that we’ve reached the point at which a facility that bans firearms, making its patrons unable to defend themselves, should be subject to lawsuit for its failure to protect them. The pattern of mass shootings in “gun free” zones is well-established at this point, and I don’t see why places that take the affirmative step of forcing their law-abiding patrons to go unarmed should get off scot-free.

He’s absolutely right, you know, for all of the reasons that he states.

There is, at this point, no reasonable argument, much less a compelling one, against a correlation between “gun free zones” and the likelihood that they’ll be the target of mass shootings, so nobody making their property a “gun free zone” can convincingly argue that they had no way of knowing or that they were acting in good faith.

At this point, it is abundantly clear to any reasonable person that banning legal carry of weapons poses an increased risk to the individual, so the logical conclusion is that if you ban firearms on the premises, you take it upon yourself to provide adequate security for visitors. And if you fail in doing so (remember that even the mall security guards were unarmed), you become liable.

Sue the shit out of them.

The free ice cream machine is a bit clogged up at the moment, at least as far as this operator is concerned. One reason is that I’m busier than a one-legged man in an ass-kicking contest, but that’s fine, and the other is that my beloved Mother-in-law just got admitted to ICU with massive pulmonary edema, which is definitely not fine. It’s horrible, and it has left all of us more than a bit out of sorts.

So if you have a spare prayer or good thought, please, please, PLEASE consider sending it up. LC Jackboot (whom I immediately called when I got the news yesterday) already got the Prayer Team™ running even though I called him in the middle of a radio show (I love ya, man), and I’m happy to report that it seems her situation has stabilized somewhat. Blood pressure is somewhat under control and her SATs look good too.

Prayers work.

In other news, so as to not leave you completely without reading, here’s a link to the Imperial Minister of Truth, Bill Whittle’s latest. As always, it’s a great read, but what infuriates me about it is that he manages to do something that has eluded me for decades, which is to sum up, IN ONE BLOODY SENTENCE, why socialism will never work and why its idea of “social justice” through “equality of outcome” is an inherently oppressive, fascist, tyrannical idea:

The slow runners cannot do better than their best. The only way to achieve equality of result – the world of “justice” that so many leftists long for – is to pull down everyone to the level of the slowest runner.

There. With ONE sentence he tells you all you need to know about why socialism belongs on the same trash heap that its sister ideology national socialism currently rots on, something that I’ve been trying to tell people for YEARS, using thousands upon thousands of words and column inches.

It’s a good thing I love him so much, or I would have to kill him.

Thatisall.

UPDATE: Some very, VERY good news! The Empress called to check on the Sainted MIL, asking how she was doing, and the nurse there told her “she’s fine. Sitting right here, reading a book.” “Now’s not the time to joke around”, the incredulous Empress replied, seeing as how she’d been told by the attending last night that she’d be on the vent for at least a few days. “I’m not joking. She’s off the vent and sitting here reading a book”, the nurse replied.

G-d be praised! Last night, we didn’t know if she was going to make it at all and now, many many prayers later, she’s off the vent and doing better already! Thank you so much all of you, and G-d Bless you all! And thank you, G-d Almighty, for your mercy and love. Compared to how things were yesterday night, it’s nothing short of a bona fide miracle and yes, they do happen. Thanks to you, L-rd.

[Indeed they do, questions anyone?-JB]

Yeah, me too, although I feel a bit overstuffed, but that’s to be expected this time of year. At least I can still walk under my own power. Most of the time.

But who I’m really talking about is the Imperial Minister of Truth, who has resurfaced to let us all know that he’s still around, he’s just been a little busy as of late. Besides, he does tend to spend a while writing his essays, which is all fine by me. If he only wrote one a year, it’d still be worth waiting for.

So why not pop by and say “hi there, Bill, good to hear from you again?”

The war in Iraq has been won

By Andrew Bolt
November 02, 2007

THERE is a reason Iraq has almost disappeared as an election issue.

Here it is: The battle is actually over. Iraq has been won.

I know this will seem to many of you an insane claim. Ridiculous!

After all, haven’t you read countless stories that Iraq is a “disaster”, turned by a “civil war” into a “killing field”?

Didn’t Labor leader Kevin Rudd, in one of his few campaign references to Iraq, say it was the “greatest … national security policy disaster that our country has seen since Vietnam”?

You have. And you have been misled.

Here is just the latest underreported news, out this week.

Just 27 American soldiers were killed in action in Iraq in October - the lowest monthly figure since March last year. (This is a provisional figure and may alter over the next week.)

The number of Iraqi civilians killed last month - mostly by Islamist and fascist terrorists - was around 760, according to Iraqi Government sources.

That is still tragically high, but the monthly toll has plummeted since January’s grim total of 1990.

What measures of success do critics of Iraq’s liberation now demand?

Violence is falling fast. Al Qaida has been crippled.

The Shiites, Kurds and Marsh Arabs no longer face genocide.

What’s more, the country has stayed unified. The majority now rules.

Despite that, minority Sunni leaders are co-operating in government with Shiite ones.

There is no civil war. The Kurds have not broken away. Iran has not turned Iraq into its puppet.

And the country’s institutions are getting stronger. The Iraqi army is now at full strength, at least in numbers.

The country has a vigorous media. A democratic constitution has been adopted and backed by a popular vote.

Election after election has Iraqis turning up in their millions.

Add it all up. Iraq not only remains a democracy, but shows no sign of collapse.

I repeat: the battle for a free Iraq has been won.

Now the task is one familiar to every democracy, and especially any in the Middle East: eternal vigilance.

If you doubt my assessment of Iraq, ask Osama bin Laden.

Al-Qaida’s media arm last week released a video on the internet in which bin Laden - or a man masquerading as him - revealed how disastrously his war against democracy in Iraq was going.

He called for intensified fighting against the Americans and pleaded for Muslims in the region to come help.

“Where are the soldiers of the Levant and the reinforcements from Yemen?” he demanded.

“Where are the knights of Egypt and the lions of Hejaz (in Saudi Arabia)? Come to the aid of your brothers in Iraq.”

Bin Laden even let slip how badly al-Qaida has been mauled by the Sunni sheiks who have stopped fighting the US troops and turned on bin Laden’s killers instead, by pleading for “unity” from the Sunnis and admitting “mistakes” had been made.

Take that as an admission of defeat for the terrorists, and a sign of victory for Iraq and its liberators.

To talk like this will, I know, choke many critics of the war with fury.

How angry so many are to hear good news from Iraq. And how suspicious is their reaction. Don’t we all actually wish for Iraq to be democratic, safe and free from tyranny?

But, they’ll splutter, but, but, but…

I can hear them already.

But the bloodshed in Iraq is terrible! Call that victory?

And, yes, the killings are ghastly. Iraq is nowhere near safe, and our help is still needed to make it so. Yet the violence now does not threaten the country or its government.

Go back to the days when American forces were fighting Muqtada al-Sadr’s Mehdi army for control of Najaf, or al-Qaida and its allies for Fallujah.

Such battles for territory are over. Al-Sadr has maintained a ceasefire for more than two years, and is even part of Iraq’s Government.

American troops are now based in his Shiite heartland of Sadr City, and no Iraqi city is now under terrorist control as Fallujah once was. “Insurgents” rule nowhere.

But we went to war on a lie!

Actually, we went to war to free Iraq from a tyrant who had used weapons of mass destruction, and would not guarantee he would not do so again.

No lie. Job done.

In any case, whatever you may think of the arguments put in 2003, the argument today is whether Iraq will survive as a democracy, and whether we should help it.

The answers must be yes, and yes. Mustn’t they? Hello?

But if Iraq is “won”, why are so many Iraqis still dying?

Because some of the killers are just criminals, or are trying to kill their way to a piece of the action, or are - inevitably after so much cruelty and oppression - settling scores.

Others are agents of Iran, which wants to make America pay and Iraq obey.

And more - and the worst - are fanatics who just want to kill for their creed, and are killing Iraqis as they are killing Pakistanis, Algerians, Egyptians, Israelis and anyone else in the way of their jihad.

Iraq remains an ugly place, with lethal hatreds, yet none of these killers are winning and Iraq will not fall to them.

Consider: Iraq’s official estimate of civilian deaths from violence is now about 25 a day.

In South Africa, with twice the population, the official murder toll is 52 a day. That’s a rate of killing equal to Iraq’s.

Do you think those murders will topple South Africa?

And does anyone say of South Africa that these killings just prove freedom was not worth it?

But how can you call this winning when Iraq’s power supply is terrible, its police untrustworthy, its regions divided over how to share oil revenues, and its borders threatened by Turkey, which wants to hit back at Kurdish terrorists encamped in Iraq’s north?

True, Iraq has plenty of problems. Which Arab country does not? But it will solve them better without Saddam than with.

And perfection is nowhere.

But, but, but … but it wasn’t worth it! See how many died!

And here is the only objection that can be made with integrity.

Yes, people have died, mainly at the hands of fellow Muslims. How many, no one knows.

Perhaps 100,000 since the war in 2003? More?

A ghastly loss, and thank God the killings are at last dwindling.

But Iraq was no Eden under Saddam. If the deaths today are bad, the misery before was worse.

As, of course, was the threat.

The battle for Iraq always involved a grim calculus: would liberation save more people than it killed?

So let’s calculate how many died under Saddam.

In 1980, the dictator invaded Iran, starting a war in which at least 500,000 people died. In 1987, he crushed the Kurds, killing perhaps 100,000 or more.

In 1990, he invaded Kuwait, starting a war that killed more than 23,000.

On his defeat, he killed some 100,000 Shiites who rebelled.

Add the mass executions he ordered, the purges he unleashed, the opposition activists he shot, the terrorist attacks he paid for.

Remember also the children who died, robbed of medicines by his regime.

Add them all up, and even by the most conservative count you see Saddam did not just threaten the West, but cost the lives of more than 100 Muslims a day, every day, for the 24 years of his barbaric rule.

That’s four times more than are being killed in Iraq today, often by Saddam’s heirs and Saddam’s like.

Was Iraq worth it? Yes. It stands, it stays, and the winning of Iraq was worth it, indeed.

The Imperial Blogsis goes off the rails and delivers some delicious invective and outrage as only she can do it.

Go read the story, then tell us that you’re not pissed off too.

A 67-year-old lady walking her dog gets attacked by a psychotic, knife-wielding madman, who proceeds to stab her at least 10 times. In the middle of Manhattan. In the middle of the fucking day. Plenty of eyewitnesses, yet only ONE guy, a guy who, by the way, just got his ear almost sliced off by the same madman, only ONE guy intervenes and tries to help.

Gottdamm worthless fucking pussies (minus, obviously, the one guy who apparently wasn’t a neutered, metrosexual son-of-a-bitch yellow-bellied fuckhole worthless coward).

The rest of them can go straight to Hell, because they are of absolutely no fucking use to the rest of humanity. Quit wasting precious oxygen that could be better used feeding higher lifeforms such as maggots.

The Imperial Blogsis unloads on the race-baiting fuckheads constantly whining and blabbering about racism as only she can do it, which is better than anything our humble self could have written.

Don’t believe that that’s possible? Well, we thank you for your vote of confidence, but just go read it and tell us that we’re wrong.

And speaking of the Imperial Blogsis, she’s on a roll here. Next, she dumps a heaping helping of enraged Clue™ on the Hildebeest’s latest “brain”child, which is to endow every child born in the U.S. of A. with $5,000 of government money tied in a fund. And guess whose money she’s about to spend? You get three guesses, and the first two don’t count.

That’s right. If your wallet is hurting, you already guessed it.

Hey, Hillary, you socialist, shit-encrusted c*nt, we already have an endowment for children in this country. It’s called “parents.” But I guess it’s only “fair” to steal $5,000 from my kids’ college fund to pay for some lazy fuck on the dole. Fine. I’m with the Blogsis here: If you’re going to do that, I demand $5,000 in 1967 dollars PLUS compounded interest.

Stalinist sow.

The Main Stream Midiots are, once again, stoking the fires of anti-gun hysteria and, as always, they manage to get pretty much exactly everything wrong, leaving the Imperial Firearms Advisor with the duty of setting the morons straight — AGAIN.

Which, we must say, always makes for a highly enjoyable read.

But, needless to say, the feeling quickly passes.

However, this is one such time.

The opportunity to go stick it to the despicable, subretarded scum known as “Truthers” would be too bloody precious to pass up on. Of course, Bloombergsville has ridiculous gun laws limiting the use of force to violent criminals but, on second thoughts, that might be a bonus if we were to attend. It would save us a lot of boring appearances before Grand Juries, that’s for sure.

If you’re able to make it to Ground Zero on 9/11, however, you really ought to think about lending a hand to LC & IB Karol and friends. Talk about a worthy cause!

We’re certainly sorry to see Tony Snow go and our Imperial prayers are with him in his continued battle with cancer, but now that the position will be open, it’s once again time to look for a replacement. Tough, feisty and undeterred as Tony is, we’re sure that he’d agree that “the show must go on.”

Fortunately, we still have the perfect candidate for the job, and you have to admit that his qualifications are spotless. Well, you can either admit it or have your entrails ripped from your living body by howling jackals. We’re all about choice in the Empire.

Not only would the Imperial Firearms Advisor make for the best WH Press Spokesman in the history of the United States, the sheer entertainment value of the briefings would make recordings of them a much sought after and valuable commodity centuries into the future.

Thatisall.
