Safe Haven

I'm unarmed!I hope you're sitting down because I'm about to make a bold statement that you've never heard before, one that very few Americans can honestly make.

Are you ready?

Okay, here I go...

"I promise to never, ever shoot anyone."

That's an easy promise for me to make because I don't own a gun and I never will, but the rest of this country is simply slopping-over with folks who are just waiting for an excuse to plug someone.

In case you forgot, shooting people are what handguns are designed to do.

Think about it. You wouldn't buy a toaster and not make toast. You wouldn't buy a car and not use it to impress some sweet tail, so you certainly wouldn't spend hundreds or thousands of dollars to buy a gun just to stick it under your car seat and wait for your kids to find it. (Oh, wait...)

Those who own guns may someday shoot you for no other reason than you forgot to use your turn signals. Serious injury, possibly even death, awaits you at the hands of these otherwise good citizens in churches, bars, state parks or, sadly enough, movie theatres. And if you keep a gun in the house the statistical likelihood of being shot by a family member increases dramatically. Almost no place is safe in this country.

But my house is. That's a promise. Now If I can only get 300 million Americans to make this same promise.

Oh, That Mitt.

big fat liarOne of the (many) reasons the Romney campaign doesn't want to talk about his time as governor of Massachusetts is what Mitt said as he signed a gun-control bill in 2004:

“[Assault weapons] are not made for recreation or self-defense. They are instruments of destruction with the sole purpose of hunting down and killing people.”

(I'll wait a moment as you Second Amendmenters catch your breath.)

So one of the two current presidential candidates is actively taking your guns away, and his name rhymes with Fit Fomney. Funny old world, ain't it?

Oh, and, uhhh, one of Romney's spokesmen says that Mr. Obama is a lousy president because he's not "Anglo-Saxon" enough. Gosh, what ever could he mean by that?

Personal note to Mitt Romney: Be careful which political dogs you lay down with, sir. Your predecessor, Senator McCain, is currently being hounded by his own party for showing an ounce of decency.

Video Time!

Holy crap! Romney's released the hive-mind! Look out, Mr. Obama! (I know it's amateur stuff but, oh my Cthuhlu!)

President Obama's Top 50 Accomplishments

Number 42: Brokered Agreement for Speedy Compensation to Victims of Gulf Oil Spill

barack obamaThough lacking statutory power to compel British Petroleum to act, used moral authority of his office to convince oil company to agree in 2010 to a $20 billion fund to compensate victims of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico; $6.5 billion already paid out without lawsuits. By comparison, it took nearly two decades for plaintiffs in the Exxon Valdez Alaska oil spill case to receive $1.3 billion.

For the full list of his 50 finest achievements read the Washington Monthly story.

Republican Job Creation Update

republican job creation7-25-2012: The House spent the 23th and 24th marking time until the August recess debating various suspension bills (requires a 2/3 vote), one of which prohibits the issuance of new regulations on business until the unemployment rate falls below 6%. Need I add which party authored such a nonsensical piece of tripe?
