I’m really enjoying the cool weather, but I’m running a bit late, because I have several tasks to complete today. Tomorrow, I get to spend the morning and early afternoon going to pee in a cup. It’s routine Urologist appointment time again. Therefore, please expect only a Personal Update tomorrow, late in the day, and no cards on Care2. I’ll try to behave and not claw urologist’s TP to shreds, all over the rest room, but its so very tempting!
Jig Zone Puzzle:
Today’;s took me 3:00 (average 4:31). To do it, click here. How did you do?
Unfortunately, my fantasy team is getting shredded. I’ve already lost two starters for the season, and we don’t even start until 9/10.
From Daily Kos (classic: 4/2014): At some point you have to recognize that the "gun enthusiasts" have lost the plot.
Belinda Padilla does not pick up unknown calls anymore, not since someone posted her cellphone number on an online forum for gun enthusiasts. A few fuming-mad voice mail messages and heavy breathers were all it took.
Then someone snapped pictures of the address where she has a P.O. box and put those online, too. In a crude, cartoonish scrawl, this person drew an arrow to the blurred image of a woman passing through the photo frame. “Belinda?” the person wrote. “Is that you?”
Her offense? Trying to market and sell a new .22-caliber handgun that uses a radio frequency-enabled stopwatch to identify the authorized user so no one else can fire it.
There was no issue here about government mandates or the like, mind you. Her crime was the supposition that some gun owners might want a safer gun, which is all it took for a wave of outraged "enthusiasts" to come surging toward her house like a tsunami of stupid…
Having guns that can not easily be converted for use by criminals is too big a threat to gun manufacturers’ profits, so they whipped Republican Ammosexuals, far too stupid to realize they are being used, into a frenzy of hate.
From NY Times: Gov. Chris Christie of New Jersey said on Saturday that if he were elected president he would combat illegal immigration by creating a system to track foreign visitors the way FedEx tracks packages.
Mr. Christie, who is far back in the pack of candidates for the Republican presidential nomination, said at a campaign event in New Hampshire that he would ask the chief executive of FedEx, Frederick W. Smith, to devise the tracking system.
I have a better idea. Lets track PIGnocchio the way Goodyear tracks blimps!
From Alternet: George Zimmerman, the killer of Trayvon Martin who was last seen hawking paintings of the Confederate battle flag that praised the Second Amendment, took to Twitter in the wake of yesterday’s shootings of Alison Parker and Adam Ward to condemn the “Black [piece of shit]” who murdered them and the “Ignorant Baboon” in the White House who mentioned gun control in his comments about their murders.
Presumably because he knows a thing or two about killing people in cold blood…
If Strike Three wins the nomination, here’s a potential running mate just slightly right of him to appeal to the Republican base.
