Ten Good Reasons To Ban Guns.
1. Guns are used in self-defense over 2 million times a year. However, this makes the attempted crime a “non-event,” which necessarily complicates the Police investigation. Without civilian ownership of guns, these Police investigations would not have been compromised. Civilians should leave crime prevention to the Police, who are properly equipped to investigate following the crime’s completion.
2. Some .004 % (4/1000 of 1%) of guns are used in crime each year. This is way too high. All guns should be banned.
3. Guns are unnecessary. In 98% of civilian gun defenses, no shot is fired. If you are not going to fire a shot, you clearly don’t need a gun. This proves that the guns are unnecessary. Banning guns will prevent these unnecessary defenses.
4. Guns cause criminal migration. In tough gun-law Washington, D. C., violent crime rates are very high. This high crime rate is caused by the migration of criminals from gun havens like Virginia. This migration is caused by the criminal’s cowardly avoidance of armed householders and concealed-carry civilians. This criminal migration is detrimental to helpless unarmed citizens in no-gun areas and must be stopped. Therefore, guns should be banned everywhere.
5. Most gun crimes are committed by inner city gangs and drug dealers. These relatively small and geographically restricted groups consistently commit the majority of gun crimes, which usually peak as turf wars erupt over Drug War changes. The best way to prevent this is by denying guns to all law abiding people everywhere.
6. No woman needs to protect herself from rape, assault or murder. The Police will protect women by investigating the crime after the fact. Remember, Police paperwork is all the protection anyone really needs.
7. Guns owners are disrespectful of authority. Good citizens should completely rely on the authorities. A failure to do so is an invariable sign of improper and overly independent attitudes. Failure to completely and absolutely trust and depend on the authorities is excessive democracy and sends a bad message to children.
8. Guns owners engaging in self-defense are taking the law into their own hands. This is wrong. Only the Police and Criminals have the right to take the law into their own hands. Guns should be kept out of the hands of law abiding citizens.
9. Children and young people should remain ignorant about guns. Real guns and real gun knowledge dissipate the fantasies created by violent video games and TV. Ignorance, once lost, can never be restored and needs to be protected. Not to mention the lost sales of all the violent movies, TV shows, video games, etc!
10. Guns reduce people’s reliance on the Police and Government. This fosters a mistaken belief in “rights”. No person has the right to question authority. No person should be less than 100% dependent on authority. This is fundamental to social order. Banning guns will help to establish the Order the authorities want. This is good.
A satire by Bruce Gold.
THE ANT AND THE GRASSHOPPER
Two Different Versions! …………….. Two Different Morals!
OLD VERSION: The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long,
building his house and laying up supplies for the winter.
The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the ant is warm and well fed.
The grasshopper has no food or shelter, so he dies out in the cold.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Be responsible for yourself!
And now for the MODERN version…
The ant works hard in the withering heat all summer long, building his house and laying up supplies for the winter. The grasshopper thinks the ant is a fool and laughs and dances and plays the summer away.
Come winter, the shivering grasshopper calls a press conference and demands to know why the ant should be allowed to be warm and well fed while others are cold and starving.
CBS, NBC , PBS, CNN, and ABC show up to provide pictures of the shivering grasshopper next to a video of the ant in his comfortable home with a table filled with food. America is stunned by the sharp contrast. How can this be, that in a country of such wealth, this poor grasshopper is allowed to suffer so?
Kermit the Frog appears on Oprah with the grasshopper and everybody cries when they sing, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green.’
Acorn stages a demonstration in front of the ant ‘s house where the news stations film the group singing, ‘We shall overcome.’
Rev. Jeremiah Wright then has the group kneel down to pray to God for the grasshopper’s sake.
Nancy Pelosi & Harry Reid exclaim in an interview with Larry King that the ant has gotten rich off the back ofthe grasshopper, and both call for an immediate tax hike on the ant to make him pay his fair share.
Finally, the EEOC drafts the Economic Equity & Anti-Grasshopper Act retroactive to the beginning of the summer. The ant is fined for failing to hire a proportionate number of green bugs and, having nothing left to pay his retroactive taxes, his home is confiscated by the Government Green Czar.
The story ends as we see the grasshopper finishing up the last bits of the ants food while the government house he is in, which just happens to be the ant’s old house, crumbles around him because he doesn’t maintain it. The ant has disappeared in the snow.
The grasshopper is found dead in a drug related incident and the house, now abandoned, is taken over by a gang of spiders who terrorize the once peaceful neighborhood.
MORAL OF THE STORY: Be careful how you vote in 2012.
Saw this blog post via twitter and had to share it with everyone.
Three days after the Raiders’ 13-9 victory over Philadelphia, people – media, fans, even players – were still talking about the pigeon. Or rather, The Pigeon. He may be on his way to surpassing the birds killed by Dave Winfield and Randy Johnson as the most famous in sports history. Larry Bird doesn’t count.
In case you missed it, a pigeon decided he (no, I don’t know for certain it’s a he, but I’m going to avoid the awkwardness of gender-neutrality here) would be Raiders’ 12th man on Sunday. He loitered around the line of scrimmage all afternoon and got his beak into several plays. Watching from the press box, at least half a dozen times I thought a player’s shoe had flown off, only to realize it was the pigeon, flapping to narrowly avoid a collision.
The most amazing sight came when the bird flew downfield on a Raiders kickoff – in formation, on the left flank of the coverage team, right next to Michael Huff.
Injured tackle Cornell Green has a theory: “That’s Marquis,” he said in the locker room today. “That’s the position he played (on kickoff).”
Marquis, of course, is Marquis Cooper, the Raiders special-teamer who died at sea when his fishing boat overturned in stormy seas in the Gulf of Mexico on Feb. 28. One friend survived the ordeal, but Cooper and two others were never found.
Apparently, Green isn’t the only one convinced Cooper has come back as a pigeon to help his old team. Another player said he spoke to Cooper’s mother after the game, and she posited the same notion. Whoever the pigeon is, he should be invited back for the Jets game.
I really liked this blog and honestly wish I would have thought of it first… But I did photoshop a picture the other night. Maybe I should change it to #95

Another email… author unknown. Really liked this though.
Once upon a time, I was invited to the White House for a private dinner with
the President. I am a respected businessman, with a factory that produces
memory chips for computers and portable electronics. There was some talk
that my industry was being scrutinized by the administration, but I paid it
no mind. I live in a free country. There’s nothing that the government can
do to me if I’ve broken no laws. My wealth was earned honestly, and an
invitation to dinner with an American President is an honor.
I checked my coat, was greeted by the
President in a yellow dining room. We sat across from each other at a table
draped in white linen. The Great Seal was embossed on the china. Uniformed
staff served our dinner. The meal was served, and I was startled when my
waiter suddenly reached out, plucked a dinner roll off my plate, and began
nibbling it as he walked back to the kitchen.
“Sorry about that,” said the President. “Andrew is very hungry.”
“I don’t appreciate…” I began, but as I looked into the calm brown eyes
across from me, I felt immediately guilty and petty.. It was just a dinner
roll. “Of course,” I concluded, and reached for my glass. Before I could,
however, another waiter reached forward, took the glass away and swallowed
the wine in a single gulp.
“And his brother Eric is very thirsty.” said the President.
I didn’t say anything. The President is testing my compassion, I thought. I
will play along. I don’t want to seem unkind. My plate was whisked away
before I had tasted a bite.
“Eric’s children are also quite hungry.”
With a lurch, I crashed to the floor. My chair had been pulled out from
under me. I stood, brushing myself off angrily, and watched as it was
carried from the room.
“And their grandmother can’t stand for long.”
I excused myself, smiling outwardly, but inside feeling like a fool.
Obviously I had been invited to the White House to be sport for some game. I
reached for my coat, to find that it had been taken. I turned back to the
“Their grandfather doesn’t like the cold.”
I wanted to shout – that was my coat! But again, I looked at the placid
smiling face of my host and decided I was being a poor sport. I spread my
hands helplessly and chuckled. Then I felt my hip pocket and realized my
wallet was gone. I excused myself and walked to a phone on an elegant side
table. I learned shortly that my credit cards had been maxed out, my bank
accounts emptied, my retirement and equity portfolios had vanished, and my
wife had been thrown out of our home. Apparently, the waiters and their
families were moving in. The President hadn’t moved or spoken as I learned
all this, but finally I lowered the phone into its cradle and turned to face
“Andrew’s whole family has made bad financial decisions. They haven’t
planned for retirement, and they need a house. They recently defaulted on a
subprime mortgage. I told them they could have your home. They need it more
than you do.”
My hands were shaking. I felt faint. I stumbled back to the table and knelt
on the floor. The President cheerfully cut his meat, ate his steak and drank
I lowered my eyes and stared at the small grey circles on the tablecloth
that were water drops.
“By the way,” He added, “I have just signed an Executive Order nationalizing
your factories. I’m firing you as head of your business. I’ll be operating
the firm now for the benefit of all mankind. There’s a whole bunch of
Eric’s and Andrews out there and they can’t come to you for jobs groveling
I looked up. The President dropped his spoon into the empty ramekin which
had been his crème brulee. He drained the last drops of his wine.
As the table was cleared, he lit a cigarette and leaned back in his chair.
He stared at me. I clung to the edge of the table as if were a ledge and I
were a man hanging over an abyss. I thought of the years behind me, of the
life I had lived. The life I had earned with a lifetime of work, risk and
struggle. Why was I punished? How had I allowed it to be taken? What game
had I played and lost? I looked across the table and noticed with some
surprise that there was no game board between us. What had I done wrong?
As if answering the unspoken thou ght, the President suddenly cocked his
head, locked his empty eyes to mine, and bared a million teeth, chuckling
wryly as he folded his hands.
“You should have stopped me at the dinner roll,” he said.
Wake up, America !
I gotta get serious for a minute. My previous blogs have all been pretty “fun and entertaining” but something has been weighing on my heart pretty heavily.
I work at a small loan company that is in a “not so nice” part of town, per say and I have customers of all races but the large majority of my customers are black. I enjoy my job, despite having to sue people and argue from time to time but most of my customers are very nice and cooperative.
One instance though, I was arguing with a black customer of mine because she was two months past due on her loan. She kept promising to pay me and repeated broken promises lead me to threaten her with a law suit. We argued back and fourth about payment arrangements and how she couldn’t pay me because of whatever reasons. I said something along the lines of “If you don’t catch your loan up by this Friday, I will be forced to file a lawsuit against you.” She cursed me, threw a fit, etc… but as she was leaving I heard her mutter “You f*cking honky!”
Uh… excuse me?
I don’t think so.
I still can’t believe that happened. Now I’m not one to take things too seriously sometimes and “racist” comments don’t bother me too much. Hell it doesn’t relly happen often, as well it shouldn’t. But I have come to notice a “trend” if you will of racist comments by blacks towards whites, but people don’t FIND it racist. Why is that? I would never DREAM of using the “N” word to somebody! First off you’re asking for an ass whoopin, second off it’s WRONG, and lastly it’s just plain rude.
This is an email I have gotten a few times, and I would like to share it with you. It has a bit of truth to it.
You call me “Cracker”, “Honkey”, “Whitey”, “Gringo” and you think it’s OK.
…But when I call you Kike, sand nigger, rag head ,Towelhead, WOP, Camel Jockey, Gook, nigger, slant eyes, porch monkey or Chink you call me a racist.
-You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?
-You have the United Negro College Fund.
-You have Martin Luther King Day.
-You have Black History Month.
-You have Cesar Chavez Day.
-You have Yom Hashoah
-You have Ma’uled Al-Nabi
-You have the NAACP.
-You have BET.
-If we had WET(white entertainment television) …we’d be racist.
-If we had a White Pride Day… you would call us racist.
-If we had white history month… we’d be racist.
-If we had an organization for only whites to “advance” our lives… we’d be racist.
-If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships…you know we’d be racist.
-In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights…you would call us racist.
-Did you know that some high school students decided to make a club for only the white students because the other ethnicities had them… they all got sent to court for being racist but the African-American, Latino, and Asia clubs were not even questioned.
-You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you’re not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.
Why is it that only whites can be racists?
The recent reverse of Sotomayor’s decision to let under qualified minorities to advance in their job was a major step in the right direction in my opinion.
In a decision that could have sweeping impact on employers across the nation, the Supreme Court ruled today that white and Hispanic firefighters in New Haven, Conn., were unfairly denied promotions because of their race, reversing a decision that Supreme Court nominee Sonia Sotomayor endorsed as an appeals court judge.Splitting down ideological lines, the court ruled 5-4 that New Haven violated a landmark civil rights law when the city threw out the results of a promotions exam after it was determined that none of the black firefighters who took the test scored well enough to be promoted.
Here’s another personal race story that happened to me. I worked at McDonald’s for a few years during college to make some extra cash on the side. I had been there as a cashier for almost a year and a half. Employees come and go in fast food and I was one of the few that stuck it out and held on. About six months before I decided to quit, this Hispanic girl, Judith, started working with me. She was a very nice girl, respectful, kind, outgoing and we got along great. What irked me and ended our friendship is after five months of working with me (after I had trained her no less) she got promoted to management. Not because she did a better job, but because she was Hispanic. The other three managers that worked there were Hispanic as well. This girl could barely speak English, and yet she is now MY BOSS. That didn’t set well with me. I congratulated her but asked her why she took the position when she knew I was looking for management myself. She said, “Because if I don’t do it now, I won’t ever get promoted. You’re white.”
A few days later I quit and never looked back.
I’m not one to toy with confrontation, but I have been close a few times because of racism. I don’t like it no matter who you are, and I’m sure most of us agree with this. Not only is it considered a hate crime in most cases, it can get out of hand. Take this recent event for example.
On the fourth of July, nearly 50 blacks attacked a white family at Firestone Park in Ohio, yelling such things as “This is our world” and “This is a black world.” You can read the full story here: http://www.ohio.com/news/50172282.html
For the police to say they “aren’t ready to call it a racial hate crime” is asinine. This is a clear cut example of a racial hate crime, weather it is a gang initiation or not.
Hope and change, huh Obama?
ATTENTION! THIS BLOG CONTAINS INAPPROPRIATE MATERIAL FOR LIBERALS!
(and maybe some uptight conservatives with no sense of humor…)
PLEASE PROCEED WITH CAUTION!
Now that I have my warning label out of the way, I can continue.
No I’m not talking about the next stimulus Obama is wanting to pass… I’m talking about how Obama has GOT to be laughing behind America’s back by now.
I have collected, thanks to my WONDERFUL friends on twitter, a series of jokes and political cartoons and emails about Obama, Pelosi, Biden and the likes. Hope you enjoy.
(Note I did not make up any of these jokes or cartoons myself.)
Over five thousand years ago, Moses said to the children of Israel ” pick
up your shovel , mount your asses and camels , and I will lead you to the
Nearly 75 years ago , Roosevelt said, ” Lay down your shovels , sit on
your asses , and light up a camel , this is the promised land”.
Now Obama is going to steal your shovel , kick your asses , Raise the
price of camels , and mortgage the promised land.
A U.S. Marine squad was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist, badly injured and unconscious. On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar but less serious state. The Marine was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both men, the squad leader asked the injured Marine what had happened.
The Marine reported, “I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent.”
“We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road. I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, low life scum bag who got what he deserved, and he yelled back that Ted Kennedy is a fat, good-for-nothing, left wing liberal drunk who doesn’t know how to drive. So I said that Osama Bin Laden dresses and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian! He retaliated by yelling –“Oh yeah? Well, so does Hillary Clinton!”
“And there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands when a truck hit us.”
Postage Stamp Problems
The Postal Services created a stamp with a picture of President Obama but
the stamp was not sticking to envelopes.
This enraged the President, who demanded a full investigation.
After a month of testing and $1.73 million in congressional hearings,a special Presidential Commission presented the following findings:
The stamp is in perfect order.
There is nothing wrong with the adhesive.
People are just spitting on the wrong side.
The Dept Of Defense briefed the president this morning. They told President Obama that 2 Brazilian soldiers were killed in Iraq.
To everyone’s surprise, all the color drained from Obama’s face. Then he collapsed onto his desk, head in his hands, visibly shaken, almost in tears.
Finally, he composed himself and asked, ‘Just how many is a brazilian?’
This is not surprising, since he obviously has no understanding of a billion or trillion either.
When you are having a bad day and think you are having problems, just remember this:
Somewhere in this world there is a MR. PELOSI!
While suturing a cut on the hand of a 75 year old rancher, who’s hand was caught in the gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually the topic got around to Obama and his bid to be our president.
The old rancher said, ‘Well, ya know, Obama is a ‘Post Turtle”.
Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a ‘post turtle’ was.
The old rancher said, ‘When you’re driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that’s a ‘post turtle’.
The old rancher saw the puzzled look on the doctor’s face so he continued to explain. ‘You know he didn’t get up there by himself, he doesn’t belong up there, and he doesn’t know what to do while he’s up there, and you just wonder what kind of dumb ass put him up there to begin with’.
New GM Car
In a special news conference yesterday, Government Motors announced it’s new concept car. The new GM proudly announces the 2010 Oldsmobile Obama.
This car runs on hot air and broken promises. It has three wheels that speed the vehicle through tight left turns. It comes complete with two teleprompters, programmed to help the occupants talk their way out of any violations. The transparent canopy reveals the plastic smiles still on the faces of all the “happy” democrat owners.
Michelle Obama went to serve food to the homeless at a government funded soup kitchen.
Cost of a bowl of soup at homeless shelter: $0.00
Having Michelle Obama serve your soup: $0.00
A homeless person receiving government funded meals while taking a picture of the first lady using his $500.00 Blackberry cell phone… $Priceless
Aaaaaaaaaaand last but not least…. I had to save this one for last… Seeing as my nickname is Black Widow and all, this made me laugh extra hard. Loved it.
Everyone needs to be aware and be very, very careful!
The Black Widow….
This spider, one of only a few poisonous spiders in the USA , can be found all over the states of Missouri , Arkansas , Kentucky , and Tennessee .
The spider releases a neurotoxin into the victim that, if not treated, can cause death!
The Black widow hooks-up with the male then sucks the very life out of him after mating!
She’s very easy to spot…
The female has a very wide backside, is Black, and has a red hour glass shaped marking on her belly….
You can find this spider in:
I had to do it. As much as I don’t want to, I must.
All this talk about Michael Jackson has infuriated me. Normally, I could care less about a celebrity who has passed away, and while this is still the case, his death has completely changed the media as we know it. Not only has Obama’s socialist agenda been ignored (which surprises me still) but there are men and women who MEAN something to this country that are dying overseas for our freedom.
Now, some celebs I might actually be shocked if they died and be sad for the loss of them. Just to name a few: Robert Dinero, Anthony Hopkins, Brent Smith (the lead singer of Shinedown… he is an AMAZING person and spreads positive messages at his concerts), Michael Jordan, Tim Brown, John Madden…. the list could go on and on. These are famous people who have actually achieved things in life through hard work and failure as well as accomplishments. They aren’t into drugs (that I know of… or they’re clean now), they’re not constantly in the media for stupid shit, they’re not in legal battles for stupid shit…
Ok let me interrupt. I just checked my phone, I have service through Sprint, and there is a TV function on my phone. I clicked on it, clicked “live tv” because I wanted to watch soccer. Not only is there a special folder for the funeral for Michael Jackson, there are REPLAYS THROUGHOUT THE DAY!
Celebrities like MICHAEL JACKSON, Paris Hilton, Nichole Richie, O.J. Simpson, Lindsey Lohan, Adam “Pacman” Jones and the likes should not be held up on a pedestal by the media or anyone else!
I don’t want the United States to be represented by people, like those idiots, to the rest of the world. It makes us look bad. I guess what I’m trying to say is Michael Jackson was a druggie child molester that should not be held up on high. NO celebrity’s funeral should be covered by all major news networks. It just doesn’t make sense to me.
As I mentioned before, there are men and women dying overseas for our freedom. There are brainwashing bills being passed in the house and senate and the media sits there and says nothing about them, but doens’t miss a minute of Michael Jackson’s coverage. There are missiles being fired from NoKo and the media stands back and laughs. BHO and Hillary Clinton side with dictators in Russia and the media becomes pawns in his hands. Take this excerpt from his speech today:
“Now let me be clear: America cannot and should not seek to impose any system of government on any other country, nor would we presume to choose which party or individual should run a country. And we haven’t always done what we should have on that front. Even as we meet here today, America supports now the restoration of the democratically elected President of Honduras, even though he has strongly opposed American policies. We do so not because we agree with him. We do so because we respect the universal principle that people should choose their own leaders, whether they are leaders we agree with or not.”
Uh… EXCUSE ME! I do NOT support any form of that statement whatsoever! Yes Obama was elected to represent our country, (I didn’t vote for him but whatever) but he’s not doing so well. Maybe the sheeple that follow him and worship the ground he walks on agree with him, but if you read my last blog, even some of the liberals are waking up and seeing the mess he is creating.
Obama is becoming too much of a celeberty. If it’s not about Michael Jackson, it’s about Obama. I know he’s our president, but there has to be SOMETHING else to report about! Hell I’d almost rather hear about burglaries and forest fires than Obama and his constant lies! Either way, I guess it’s pretty depressing, huh? HA.
Even Fox News who claims to be “fair and balanced” has been pissing me off lately. I’ve hidden the remote and I’m not going to watch news for a week. Seriously. Movies and shows are all good, but I refuse to watch the MSM for any news whatsoever. I’ll get my REAL news via internet and radio. I don’t care about Michael Jackson. Yes he was a great singer and dancer, but he was also a child molester, drug addict and a freak. The last time I saw this much media coverage over a dead celeb was Ronald Reagan, and to me that was worthy, but even still a bit too much.
The main stream media needs to remember how to report news, and not crap. I wonder if we all stopped tuning in if they would finally get the hint and get back to basics.
Does anyone else get sick of listening to this guy?
This made me laugh so hard… (special thanks to @mozartrules for the vid link)
Anyhow, Barack Obama’s voice is like nails on a chalk board to me. So when it comes time to actually listening to the guy on important issues, it just about takes a gallon of pepto and a nausea pill to make me be able to stomach it.
Funny I mention “important issues” when to him all it seems like is a joke… I truly believe this guy has no interest in protecting this country. Obama has no backbone. If you were to take an X-Ray of him, there would be a stick extending from his posterior to his neck, which is why I think his ears stick out so damn far.
Health care! – lies
War Issues! – lies
No higher taxes! – major lie
Does the guy NOT lie about something? Sheesh I know there’s freedom of speech, but come on man!
Recently on the fourth of July, I got to talking politics with the friends I was with. Now, before the election they were all hard core set on voting for Obama and how he was “going to save us all” from Bush. Totally different change of heart. I was pleasantly surprised we weren’t slugging each other over view points. My liberal friends were all ashamed they voted for Obama. EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THEM REGRETS VOTING FOR HIM AND FEELS BETRAYED FROM HIS LIES… If that doesn’t say something in a red state, I don’t know what does. His constant lies, his savvy attitude, his empty promises… all for what? A country that looks like a dead rat to other countries *cough NoKo cough* A country with the highest unemployment rate in over 26 years. A country that is up in arms and finally taking action. A country that hasn’t seen these dark of days since the 1920’s, and hopefully we won’t get that bad!
I can’t remember the last time a president was so controversial (minus Clinton, but his was the sex scandal) over policies.
Mr. Obama… it’s not all about being cool! We don’t care if you’re dressed nice, wear the right shoes or have the latest ray ban sunglasses. Just do the right thing and fix our country. So far you’re screwing it up! I feel sorry for whoever has to clean up your mess.
I’m fed up. Aren’t you?
