Toy Gun Licensing

Unlicensed toy gun

Australia to License Toy Guns

ANY ITEM that looks like a gun will have to be licensed under several changes to the Weapons Act being considered by the Queensland State Government.

Even guns made out of materials as unlikely as soap or plastic may have to be kept under lock and key if they could "reasonably be taken to be a weapon".

"If it looks like a gun and feels like a gun, it will have to be licensed," said a government source.

"We just want to know where they are."

Reporter Robyn Ironside then adds, "It is unclear how the draft affects toy guns." ?!?

I'm guessing that Queensland is Australia's Maryland.  Anyone?  If this isn't farcical enough for you so far, try this. 
Failure to license an imitation weapon will carry a maximum $4500 fine under the proposals and incorrect storage carries a penalty of $750.
Just stab me in the liver and be done with it.  By the bye - did you ever look at Dillingers wood gun up close ?

Time to bomb the bombers

James Lee is Al Gore is Prince
Charles is the Unabomber

Damn!  I meant to copyright that thought.

What’s really depressing is that the philosophy expressed in James Lee’s (and the Unabomber’s) manifesto – which is also, incidentally, the philosophy expressed in Al Gore’s The Earth In Balance – is also the philosophy that is taught every day to our children in their schools: the world is fragile; human beings are a blot on the landscape; through our greed and selfishness we make everything worse; really it would be better if we vanished altogether and let all the lovely pure noble animals take over. [So much more; so very right]

Largely ignored at the time was that amongst the crap collected from the Unabomber's squalid hut was one (1) copy of Al Gore's book, Earth In The Balance.  Quizzes like Ken Crossman's "Did Al Gore say it? Or was it the Unabomber?" were all the rage amongst free thinkers.  Al Gore and Unabum are unquestionably insane; Prince Charles never won the Nobel Peace Prize, and thus lacks the gravitas of a serious advocate.  Lee of course is dead, but every person who donates to the Sierra Club, or Greenpeace, or the Democrat Party was, and is a more serious threat to national freedom.  Carry on. Smoke'em if you have 'em.

Philip Weiss and Crazies

Philip Weiss Tangentially

 ASME and Amazon.com Announce the Finalists of the 2010 Best Magazine Cover Contest

Ran into this yesterday, and of course my eye went immediately to NOPE and HATE.  First time I'd seen that New York Magazine (September 28, 2009) cover.  Sleuthing yielded the article, written by Philip Weiss, and that sent me off on this  tangent.  Weiss, it seems, owns the rights to Hate and Crazies stories (not a bad thing).

In 1997 Weiss, a contributing New York Times editor, was sent to Arkansas to do a story for the New York Times Magazine.  His mission: find the crazies causing Bill Clinton all this trouble, then expose and discredit them.  That resulted in The Clinton Haters - Clinton Crazy.  

An odd thing happened however.

Weiss did find a bunch of them; like Larry Nichols, Hugh Sprunt, and Pat Matrisciana, "a film maker, who had  developed a monstrous view of Clinton as Satan's nephew."  He ate with them; drank with them; and reported what they said.  What he did not do is paint them as nut jobs who made stuff up.  In fact, Weiss later confessed that the crazies made a better case than did the Clinton apologists,  The New York Times was not happy, and as far as I know that was the end of his association with the Gray Lady. I've had a healthy respect for Weiss ever since, and would read his recent "Crazies"  article, except I hate Obama  too much. Love the cover though, and wonder why it's in the "Most Controversial" category, and not "Best Vampire?"

SEIU President Admits
‘I’m Totally Involved in
Distorting the Political System’

June 20, 2007

Union Leader Andy Stern of SEIU, described by Business Week as a man who wants to "radically retool the U.S. Labor movement", discusses with NDN Globalization Initiative head Rob Shapiro the significant challenges facing unions in a world of fierce global competition and stagnant domestic wages.

If I wanted to draw comparisons between Obama's people and Hitler's (but, I will not),  former SIEU chief thug Andy Stern would find equivalency with the SA's Ernst Röhm.  That's all.
