Priorities Mr. President

Yours are screwed up and skewed unbelievably

President Barack Obama is unveiling new public service announcements against campus sexual assault in a campaign being supported by the NCAA and several media companies with reach among college students.

The White House says athletes will appear in the campaign called “It’s On Us” that Obama and Vice President Joe Biden plan to reveal Friday at a White House event. With an estimated one in five college women assaulted, the message is particularly targeted at men.

 

I guess National Security isn’t as important for your administration, after all we just have a southern border where thousands of people a day are streaming across including possible terrorists. The economy is still in the ‘recovery’ phase if we call what we’ve been experiencing a recovery. We haven’t seen that “post racial” America you promised to bring about. We still don’t know the truth about so many issues (for other administrations they would be called scandals) such as the IRS targeting conservative groups, Benghazi, Fast & Furious, etc.

 

I understand sexual assaults on campus are a serious problem but I don’t think it should be the role of the President’s administration to lead an effort to reduce them. Maybe the idea sounded better on the golf course than it does in print; why don’t you try to figure out the serious national issues which you can actually do something about. Here’s a hint; they try to tell you about this things in your daily security briefings.

Interesting But Not Legal Way…..

of making your opinion of cops known.

An Austrian police officer monitoring motorists was covered in manure by an explosive booby trap likely meant to target traffic cops, police said.

Police spokesman Rainer Dionisio said Constable Gunther Maier, 58, triggered a fishing line at the side of the Moelltal state highway and the line set off explosives in a nearby plastic bucket filled with manure.

Dionisio said Maier was about 6.5 feet away from the bucket when it detonated. He said the officer was covered with manure, but not injured.

The spokesman said the trap was likely designed to target police, as the spot where Maier was watching traffic is often used by officers using radar guns to monitor the speed of motorists.

Somehow I think that a review of recent tickets from that location may yield a suspect or more; maybe dozens. I’m just glad no photos or videos of the alleged crime were published.

 

 

Think All Felonies Are the Same?

A Georgetown teenager is facing a felony charge after police say he rubbed his private parts on a customer’s pizza.

Austin Michael Symonds 18, is charged with one count of tampering with a consumer product.

According to the felony complaint, a customer called in an order to Papa Murphy’s on September 2nd. When he walked in that’s when he saw Symonds rubbing his testicles on the family sized pizza he ordered.

The customer told police he asked Symonds how old he was.

“18,” Symonds said.

“So you are old enough to know better than to put your balls on someone’s pizza,” the customer said.

Symonds apologized to the customer. He told his manager that he did it because the customer called in the order right before closing.

 

Disgusting and wrong in so many ways but a felony? Seriously this is insane folks.

I am glad he was fired. I’m glad there were criminal charges filed. Hopefully, but doubt it will, make others think twice before doing something stupid like this. This may seem like a minor issue isolated to a single case but it is a common practice to charge people with the highest crime possible instead of something more appropriate like criminal mischief.

This could ruin the kids life for a very long time.

The teen told detectives he would have probably given the pizza to the customer if he hadn’t been caught. Symonds was released from the Williamson County Jail after posting bond. If convicted of the felony he faces between two and 20 years and a fine not to exceed $10,000.

He faces two to twenty years in prison for a imbecilic act. He faces the lose of many of his rights; including the right to keep and bear arms. I’m not saying it was a harmless act but is it really worth a felony ?

A Look At The Illegal Immigration Problem

When you hear about “Citizen Patrols” or “Militias” sometimes it isn’t what most of the media would have you think. Sometimes it is simply people trying to keep their property from being overwhelmed.

 

 

Quote of the Day – Research Edition

As for the claim that gun rights proponents oppose the conduct of legitimate research, consider this. Many years ago, I asked a very powerful anti-gun academic the following questions: What proportion of gun crimes are committed by the lawful owner of a legally purchased firearm, and what percentage of lawful gun owners use their firearm in commission of a crime?  He said that he did not know, and that he would oppose conduct of the research to answer both questions.

Emphasis mine – from a very good opinion piece by a public health professional. Worth reading it all

Need a New Category

One called “Straight from the Horse’s Other Orifice” — for those who are talking out of their lower orifice.

Nancy Pelosi is a great example of this.

The former speaker of the House made those dramatic, incongruous statements on “Real Time with Bill Maher,” which aired live from Washington, D.C. Friday.

Maher asked Pelosi about recent polling which shows that the GOP is likely to take over the upper chamber and asked, given gridlock in Washingon, why it matters that Democrats keep control.

“It would be very important for the Democrats to retain control of the Senate,” Pelosi told Maher. “Civilization as we know it today would be in jeopardy if the Republicans win the Senate.

Yeah….that’s the spirit of bi-partisanship showing there.

Then there is this trusting individual who dislikes firearms

I saw it coming, but not like this. I actually expected teachers to go on a shooting rampage because many of them are unstable.

Folks, I wish I could tell you these are jokes. I really wish that I could….but this is what they think of us.

 

Guns and Kids

Pretty good report on the subject from the local CBS station

 

 

 

 

 

Our gun club also helps out with several area school clubs; I think we are up to 3 – maybe 4 clubs using our fields for practice. So it is good to see a positive report on the subject.

One of the things not mentioned in the report is how much family involvement goes on behind the scenes. Just like band or other school activities, it takes a considerable number of parents to make it work. We see a large number of parents helping out, working with the kids and learning about the sport.

And joining the club   :)
