NEWSWEEK vs. The Atlantic: Dueling Data wonks

Newsweek‘s “Hit the road, Barack: Why we need a new president” written by conservative historian Niall Ferguson vs. The Atlantic‘s article “A Full Fact-Check of Niall Ferguson’s Very Bad Argument Against Obama” by senior associate editor Matthew O’Brien are good reads.

The only problem going on here is with me and my frustration in knowing who to believe anymore without having to do my own research to ferret out the truth.  If I have to devote one more minute to fact-checking the supposed ‘fact-checkers’ on facts (not to mean the writers referenced here), I might as well finish the dam research and go the one-more-step and just publish my dam book Liars for Hire for a million bucks advance and get on with my life, hunh?  I dream of isolated beaches….aaaaaah

Crikey-Roos!

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) & Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) vs. Common Sense

Sen. Pat Toomey (R-PA) shared the podium with Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) to disgust (sic) gun control and yup, there’s that word again, “Common Sense” bandied about during their discussion.  Both senators agree that society is on the down spiral, morals-wise, but they think that background checks will ferret out hoodlums and the mentally ill from obtaining guns.  COMMON SENSE, senators?

  • It’s naive and irrational to think that a criminal is going to fill out background check information, wait for it, honestly.  Honestly, it’s the most stupid presumption going here, guys.
  • Likewise, the mentally ill, may have no COMMON SENSE and will lie, beg or borrow any dam weapon they can get their hands on (the recent stabbing at Lone Star College proves this).
  • It’s only honest, law-abiding citizens that, wait for it, obey laws.

With all due respect, senators.

It’s the Self-Control NOT Gun Control, Stupid!

Let’s get real here, pardner.  This Instant-Gratification Party needs to end.   The Trigger-Tempers need to be reined in, like, now.   Our kids and young adults need to get down to the business of becoming productive, responsible citizens.   Our parents need to put down their toys and self-interests and get down to the business of raising their kids as though they love them.   Not tolerate them.  Not resent them because they require one’s time and attention.   Feed their bodies and their souls.  Teach them and yourselves moderation, patience and self-control.  Get your kids some religion and community service to learn to get over themselves and serve others.   Get off your high-horse and get down to business!  And remember, PopUpCommontater is not full of what your horse leaves behind it, warm and steaming.  Hee Haw.

I appreciate my gun. Thank you gun. Thank you for standing at the ready. Thank you for saving my life.

Ode to Gun

glock22-sm

Without you, my gun
I’d have no one, not even
me.  I owe you one.

So here’s THAT one, gun;
where I say you are MY gun-
nothing above you

save Heaven’s Father.
Nothing between us except
God and our country.

Have Gun Will Travel
to ends of earth proclaiming
God’s Liberty song!

Please don’t tread on me
world, or I’ll make my gun sing!
rat-a-tat-tat, rat

C’mon gun, let’s get
hell out of Dodge, let heaven
take a crack at it.

From dust are we born,
to dust we shall rest in peace;
me and Blue steel gun.

Sen. Diane Feinstein, gun owner for *her* own protection vs. wants to take *your* gun! *hypocrite alert*

Here’s a good one to mull over hours before Prez-O takes to the podium to dictate what you are allowed in the World According to Garp, er, Grab-ber, as in, grabbing up all your Constitutional Rights squirreled away in your nest egg.  As Prez-O stands at the podium, backed by all his Enforcers backed by their Big Guns with their own Big Gunners, just think for a moment about how FAST and FURIOUS they are to get their gun ban laws enacted (BEFORE they clean their own house of illegal doings?).  You’ll only have your pitch forx to hold them off at the stand-off corral, ok?  And so, without further ado, here’s Diane Feinstein du jour senator, sitting in her congressional seat (where’s her seat belt??!!), rationalizing why she had to arm herself to her captive *snort* audience because she received death threats – and she was gonna shoot them first!  Gotta love these congressional Ghost GunBusters!

Prezzes Karzai & Obama White House presser and Karzai at Georgetown University

I watched both the joint news conference and Karzai’s address on U.S.-Afghanistan relations and this is my 2 cents:  I was awe-striken by the difference in Karzai’s speech patterns between the 2 events.  While at the podium with Obama at the White House, decked out in his home country regalia, Karzai spoke hesitantly, displaying micro-stutters at beginning of each utterance, giving the impression his English left much to be desired having all the makings of a goat herder , hesitatant, ah ah ah-ing, etc., compared to his speech at Georgetown University.  Hat’s off!  Karzai seemed like a new man. A man whose speech was unhesitant, sure-footed, and very much like a seasoned American.  What’s Up With That????!!!

(I know his family lives in Baltimore…duh!)
