Disgusting. First Lance, now Manti Te’o. Does everyone have lie to us now days?
Yes, apparently so. In addition to Lance lying about not doping it seems that Manti hoaxed us about his dead girlfriend. Apparently she never actually existed; she was a composite. Seriously, who would do that?
I predict a future in politics for that boy…Manti, I mean. (is that racist?).
Butt enough of that, we have bigger catfish to fry. Did you watch BO’s lecture on guns yesterday?
I know you’re going to get all over me about this - butt isn’t that little
pawn girl on the left dressed rather inappropriately? I mean, really; a sleeveless dress? In January? To meet with the President? Who does that?
In case you missed it, the primary news coming out of yesterday’s lecture was the presidential announcement of the newest government euphemism for gun control: “Eliminating Gun Violence.”
Here’s the under-30-words recap of the photo op: 26 minutes, 23 Executive Orders, 2 dozen harsh stares and $500 million. All that and all we have so far is one small step for “gun violence” and one giant step for the repeal of the 2nd Amendment.
You can read the 23 Executive Orders if you have nothing better to do, butt aside from directing the Centers for Disease Control to research “gun violence,” clearing the way for physicians - under Obamacare - to ask patients if they own firearms, and appointing a director of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (Isn’t that already in Big Guy’s job description? Maybe he just forgot to put it on his “to do” list.) there’s nothing even mildly interesting. The damn lawyers wouldn’t let Big Guy outlaw what he considers “assault” weapons and high capacity magazines on his own. Damn them! We need some better lawyers around here.
A few people took offense at the presence of what they called “kiddie props” at the
photo op lecture announcement. Some even accused Big Guy of practicing “argumentum ad filium,” one of the pernicious forms of logical fallacy permeating political discourse these days:
argumentum ad populum (it’s popular, therefore it’s true); argumentum ad nauseam (if you repeat it often enough, it’ll become truth); argumentum ad hominem (sabotage the person, sabotage the truth); and argumentum ad verecundiam (if my favorite authority says it’s true, it’s true).
Boy, what a cynical accusation. We use children around here all the time, for everything. Because children are our most important product. And if it’s for the children, it’s “unassailably good and true.” Right?
And having children around always makes
the crap the peas being served easier to swallow.
It’s for your own good. Sometimes you just have to eat your peas.
So don’t worry about giving up your second amendment rights and having your guns taken away. When that happens, there will still be plenty of other, legal, less violent ways for you to protect yourself from those who would rape, rob or kill you.
Like zoning boards.
