Mark my words, this “Cyberbullying” law will be used to attack parents and activists who oppose the state run education monopoly. Anyone who commits the thought crime of criticising how their child’s school is run will at least be threatened with a second degree misdemeanor, so many of them will just shut up. We all know teachers. They aren’t interested in truth, they just want the children to sit down, shut up, and complete their assigned workbook pages.
I’m going hunting for the second time on Saturday. There was the previous “hunting” trip, which mostly consisted of sitting in the middle of my friend’s field while all the deer laughed at me, but this time I will have a hunter friend help me out.
I’m taking my ultra dangerous sniper rifle that Japete freaked out about. It’s a Remington Model 700 in .243 Winchester. I’ve had it since I was 15, so it really needs to be the rifle I use to get my first deer. If I get a deer with it, the rifle is going back to my father’s house where he can use it to cut down the population of woodchucks. I should have my new AR-15 from Templar by Thanksgiving to replace it.
Now an AR is primarily a fighting rifle, but I don’t see any reason I can’t use it to hunt deer. With the new bullets they have nowadays, why not? Who has some suggestions for factory loaded ammo that’s acceptable for deer hunting? I suspect that Army surplus “green tip” ammo isn’t going to cut it. The rifle will have a 16″ barrel and probably a 1 in 9 twist.
How many ways is this a bad idea? You can see their shirts here. I especially like the one with Big Bird holding a sign that say “Romney just fired my ass.” That should be worth double points in the “How bad will the eventual lawsuit be” sweepstakes. The two Shepard Fairey “Hope” style ones are awesome. How many copyrights were violated there? There’s Big Bird, There’s the use of Shepard Fairey’s iconic poster, and if you remember, Fairey’s poster was a copyright infringement of the original AP photo.
I’m pretty sure that even if they Sesame Street people are happy with the idea (which they won’t be) they have to defend their copyright. If they fail to defend it in this case, the next person who violates it can claim that they’ve abandoned it. Given that Sesame Street is a multimillion dollar property, they’re not going to let a couple of college idiots get away with it.

The sap on the left is a genuine Boston Leather Four-Ply Junior. The one on the right is my lead shot version. It doesn’t have the spring shank or the cast lead head, so I think it will be a bit less brutal, but still effective. I also like the fact it was handmade just for me.
So what’s the horrible ad that has everyone up in arms?
Oh yeah. Really controversial.
Yes, it’s a douchey ad, and I totally disagree with it. In fact, I would be happier to see an ad for Pamela Geller’s “Support the Civilized Man” campaign. But a governmental entity has no business discriminating one way or the other. I suspect that the people in charge of the bus ads realized that if they accept this ad that they would have to accept the other, offensive to them, ad.
Luckily the ACLU is on the case. They’ve pretty much said that they will sue if they don’t get the ad on the bus. Would you like to give them all a lesson? Would you like to live rent free in their heads for MONTHS?

I don’t think that this can stand. It’s one thing to ban illegal activity, but you can’t ban Constitutionally protected activity.
And no matter what, we’d get to have a lot of fun pissing off all the right people. Does anyone know someone with money lying around who would like to fund a “piss off the anti-gunners in Liberal Chapel Hill” project? $600 gets us started. More than that gets us more buses.
My dog, Zucca. She’s wondering why I’m laying on the floor.
This photo was taken back when I lived in Pennsylvania. We’d just gotten her. She still had use of both of her eyes. Now she’s got a cataract in one and is working on the other. Plus she’s mostly grey around the muzzle.
She wasn’t the dog either my wife or I really wanted, but we’re both glad that we picked her. Even if it was accidentally. Sometimes you just get lucky despite your plans.
As part of my job as an inspector, I went to a secure facility today. I am not going to tell you exactly what it was except to say that the security was tighter than the prisons I’ve inspected. This location had armed guards.
Today I saw something straight out of a “chicks and guns” photo shoot. She was young, very slim, and every bit as pretty as Jennifer of In Jennifer’s Head. Now, typically when I see a person carrying a gun as part of their job, they wear some sort of uniform unless they happen to be police detectives who work in plain clothes. Not this girl. She had her tank top hiked up a bit so it didn’t interfere with her SERPA holster holding what looked like a Glock 19. That SERPA was attached to her bright red and very form-fitting pants.
Here’s the thing. If you’re carrying a gun as a self-defense tool, wear whatever you like. Jennifer says she once took a home defense shotgun course wearing 3 inch heels. But if you’re carrying a gun as part of your job outside of a secure facility, you’re carrying that gun because you are expected to go into combat. And cute sandals are great in your personal life, but they aren’t warrior wear.
Sorry for the lack of photos. It was a secure facility after all.
