Teh Squeaky Wheel
"I see another “bombshell” “game-changer” “pivotal moment” “changes everything” “Trump is done” moment has occurred courtesy of John Bolton. Odd, the timing of this, but there you go."
Happy Cross-dressing Puppy Monday, Wheelizens!
I see it’s rather cold in SoCal this morning; 36ºF in Tarzana. With some rain expected later this week, we’ve got a bit of scrambling to do…
A little bit of winter in SoCal the past week and this week too.
Happy Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
It appears Mac is showing us what happens when you don’t get professionally fitted for the right-sized bra. Women -- don’t let your puppies be unhappy!
I knew I could rely on Paddy to come through.
Hai, Sven, Paddy and Mac!
Mr. O’ did not disappoint. 😎
Claire Wolfe once again hitting the nail on the head:
Since the Parkland murders I’ve had a hard time blogging. I can’t bear to make the same old arguments or listen to the same old arguments. Both the gunblogosphere and the media have been All Parkland, All the Time.
I can link to it, but I can’t be part of it.
I tell myself nobody expects me to blog about every malcontent bastard who decides to murder disarmed mobs with a gun. But after all my years as a gun-rights activist, I still expect myself at least to work up a good rant.
Yet watching the hoplophobes’ gleeful attempt to create a nationwide children’s crusade, I feel nothing. I can only look ahead, dreading the war useful idiots are unwittingly creating — a violent culture war if not outright civil war. I look ahead and think, “You do not know who you are taking on. You can’t even imagine the future you’re going to make if you succeed.”
The useful fools have no idea. Maybe they honestly believe that laws will make “bad” guns go away and mass murderers will change their minds (rather than merely their choice of weaponry). And pink unicorns will romp over rainbows throughout the land.
Our would-be masters also have no idea. Of course they know better than to believe all that peace and flowers and let’s everybody be disarmed and love each other once the Eeeeevil Guns are beaten into plowshares nonsense. But they still make a huge mistake.
Imagining themselves superior to us in wisdom, culture, and power, they fail to understand both who We the Peasants are and what skills and tech are now at our hands.
It indeed seems likely we’re into the first stages of a very nasty culture war; hope it does not wind-up getting much worse.
