Enough, Already!

A diatribe against Second Amendment ‘freedom’ I’m fresh off anger over the disgraceful Senate vote against restricting individuals on the terror watch list from purchasing weapons. My librul friends are posting their disgust, while my tinfoil hat uh, friends, are posting things like this meme above. For the record: We did not get a Second Amendment because […]

Crazy white men with guns in Oregon (updated)

UPDATE–a more relevant photo meme just out after the local sheriff had a hand-shake with Ammon Bundy.  Assuming you’re paying attention, you’ve heard that self-styled ‘militia’ have swept down on Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in Oregon and taken it over, vowing to not move ‘for years’.

Fortunately, words didn’t fail Jon Stewart, who dispensed with […]

the back-and-forth on the gun debate

A couple of weeks ago, I tried to line up the contradictions of the pro-gun lobby’s version of history. This was in reaction to two pro-gun guys being on WBCR Sex and Politics. Last night, we played host to another Second Amendment advocate, and I was able to bring out some of the more nuanced […]
