Over the last two days, the level of sickening hypocrisy and arrant stupidity of the media has reached depths of nausea that even I did not believe were possible

Chief of these, is a cry to ban all handguns.

This, if done, will leave all the guns in the hands of those who don’t give a rats ass for the laws being clamored for.

We do not have the right to keep and bear arms in Australia

And a criminal brandishes a shotgun in our faces and robs us in broad daylight.

We do not have the right to keep and bear arms in Australia

And we are carjacked at gunpoint.

We do not have the right to keep and bear arms in Australia.

And as a bank employee, we are threatened with a gun as the bank is robbed.Or shot as we cower on the floor.

We do not have the right to keep and bear arms in Australia.

And a woman is shot to death by a maniac, in a real estate agents office.

We do not have the right to keep and bear arms in Australia.

In the future, a lunatic who got his guns from an illegal dealer on the streets stalks through an office, slaughtering anyone he sees. I may be next, as he stands there laughing, and my last wish is that I had had a gun to shoot him instead.

But yes, all bad guns are “bad” and we have lots of gun laws to keep us safe. The government will pass lots more, and ensure we are never allowed to have a gun.

If you have the nerve to defend yourself, expect to wind up in jail when the criminal sues you.

We keep telling ourselves how safe we are, thanks to all of those gun laws…until an armed home invasion gang smashes down the front door.

Don’t let them do this to you.

Please.

Here’s just a quick list of areas/cities that are sweltering under The Gorebecile’s mythical Anthropogenic Global Worming™ on this Easter Sunday, 2007.

The good people of Tennessee are probably gathering up their pitchforks & torches and heading to the Gorethedral of Global Worming™ to kick the fast bastard’s ass back over to EUnuchistan. (That’s AFTER bundling up like Nanook of Nashville™ & scraping the ice off their SUV’s o’ Doom™, of course.)

Perhaps we should just scrap our plans, altogether, for that Ron Jon® Surf Shop in Omaha and plan on opening up an Alpine ski resort in the U.S. Virgin Islands, instead…

F.E.T.E.

The results would be quite entertaining. And messy. (Link thanks to LC & IB Ace):

BRUSSELS, April 3 (RIA Novosti) - The government of Belgium’s French-speaking region of Wallonia, which has a population of about 4 million, has approved a tax on barbequing, local media reported.

It’s “barbecuing”, you dumbfuck turd worlders or, if you absolutely must stick a “q” in there somewhere, “BBQing.”

AND it is a Holy Food, and the consequences of trying to mess with it will be truly Biblical in proportion. And that’s before G-d gets around to taking part in the festivities.

Experts said that between 50 and 100 grams of CO2, a so-called greenhouse gas, is emitted during barbequing. Beginning June 2007, residents of Wallonia will have to pay 20 euros for a grilling session.

That’s $26 in real money. 26 bucks just to fire up the grill. Actual meat costs extra. Again, I’d love to see the Texas legislator suicidal enough to even think about proposing something as terminally tumblefucked as this. So how do the Belchians propose enforcing this madness?

The local authorities plan to monitor compliance with the new tax legislation from helicopters, whose thermal sensors will detect burning grills.

All of a sudden the enormous BBQ tax makes sense, in a EUrotardian sort of screwed up way. Something is going to have to pay for all of the fuel those choppers will be burning in order to keep the Belchian subjects from “polluting” the air with CO2 when they cook.

Hey… Waitaminnit…

Morons.

But before you start laughing too loudly, we’re sure you’d like to know that five doddering old senile coots on the Supreme Court just discovered yet another hitherto unknown provision in the Constitution, this one granting the Federal government the powers to regulate — wait for it — breathing.

Rope. Tree. Judge.

You know the drill.

***UPDATE***: Alright, so not even the Belchian gummint are that incandescently imbecilic. ‘Twas but an April Fool’s joke of theirs. Hahaha. No, really, good one! You really got us there, you evil bastitches. I know when I’ve been had, and boy I was HAD! :doh_tb:

Amish Face Food Safety Scrutiny In Ohio

Now of course, for any of this to make sense, we have to just for a minute, imagine the Amish culture recently appeared on the scene. Nevermind the Amish folks as we know them immigrated to the U.S. around 1730. The group originally known as Anabaptists (no that’s not anti-baptist.) broke away from the British Empire during the Lutherian religious reformation of the 16th century, on their basis of rejecting infant baptism. Later a leader of the movement, Menno Simmons moved his flock to Switzerland and they became known as Mennonites. Yet later during the late 17th century the sect fractured even more and immigrated to the fledgling colonies, recognizing them as a prime area for the practice of religious freedoms. They arrived primarily in William Penn’s “holy experiment” Pennsylvania after determining that the “religious tolerance” quotient was quite high in that area. They rapidly prospered in the rich farm land and spread into Ohio and western Maryland. During this period they picked up the moniker of Amish or Mennonites. Their religious ordinances encourage them to maintain a very simplistic lifestyle, including prohibition on the use of motorized machinery or electricity. The Mennonite (or Old Order German Baptists or Brethren) did adopt some modern technology while maintaining the traditional clothing and beards for men. Sorry for the historic digression, I couldn’t help myself as my particular religious sect is a direct descendant of these groups.

[Clarification / Update: I didn’t make it very clear above. The Mennonites and Amish are different sects of Baptist-Christian origin. The Mennonites drive cars, have electricity and use modern mechanized equipment. They Mennonites do however, dress similar to Amish and are often confused with each other. Both sects are prevalent in the Ohio, Pennsylvania, western Maryland areas primarily in the agricultural areas of these states. -JB]

Now, it must be noted that the Amish have done quite well for almost 250 years here in the U.S., without the dubious benefit of gubmint teaching them well settled matters such as food preservation, handling and safety.

Not even temperatures hovering below zero or a foot of snow stopped customers from trekking to Mary’s Amish Market for her fruit pies and Swiss cheese.

But state regulators are stopping by for another reason.

Bureaucrats being what they are, can’t resist the urge to create jobs for even more of their compadres, thus ever expanding government jobs at our expense, right?

Give us more, O Emperor! »

The Lady Ann weighs in on Walter Reed and assorted other exhibits of monumental government incompetency and idiocy.

As somebody who grew up in a society where pretty much everything was controlled by the government, her argument is self-evident. When you remove responsibility and make it more difficult to fire incompetent employees than curing genital herpes, you end up with… The USPS or Walter Reed.

The major difference being, of course, that genital herpes is considerably less revolting, nasty and damaging than federal employees.

What’s not to like?

The city council of Lubbock, TX, put their traffic light camera scam on hold after some enterprising reporter found out that they’d been fiddling with the yellow light timings on the traffic lights where cameras were to be installed.

Why on Earth would they do that?

Short yellows assure a steady flow of red light camera ticket revenue. A Texas Transportation Institute study found that an extra second of yellow time added to the current ITE formula yields a a 53 percent reduction in the number of tickets issued…

Nothing new there. “We’re the Gummint, and we’re here to rob you blind any way that we can.”

But that’s not all that fiddling with yellow lights does:

…along with a 40 percent reduction in accidents.

When you increase the yellow time, that is. We’ll leave it up to you to figure out what decreasing it will do to the number of accidents.

But who cares, right? Anything for the fattening of the public treasury.
