Is This Guy Serious?

 Why Does the Far Right Hold a Near-Monopoly on Political Violence?
 Why does the Left hold a near-monopoly on political idiocy? Clueless articles like this. Please provide a recent incident other than some dude running for office in Montana knocking a Guardian reporter on his ass where the perpetrator was on the Right. They've all been of the Left. Talking about our Second Amendment rights to protect our rights with violence isn't violence as you so claim. They are words. We haven't yet been driven to the point of violence. We prefer the courts. Wouldn't it be nice if you guys felt the same?

Stephen Furst, Flounder from 'Animal House', Dead at 63

Yeah, I remember him from Animal House, but it was his work on Babylon 5 that made me a fan.

Porcupines

A popular essay from Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, divided humans into three categories: “Sheep,” “Wolves,” and “Sheepdogs.” I would suggest that Lt. Col. Grossman left out an important fourth category: “Porcupines.” My wife is neither “sheep” nor “sheepdog,” and she certainly is no “wolf.” She is a “porcupine;” harmless and docile if left alone, but ferocious and dangerous if threatened – even more so if her progeny are threatened. She would choose flight over fight every time, if flight is a viable option. But if flight is not an option, she has the tools, training, and mindset to win the fight. - Jeff Knox
I like that. My responsibility is to myself and my family. If I choose to step up and help others, I set myself up in the aftermath for a world of crap. I won't say I won't, but, once again, me and mine come first.

It's a good article. I suggest you read the whole thing.

Republicans Target D.C. Gun Laws in Wake of Shooting
The bill forces reciprocity on D. C. and unlike a suggestion by another GOP lawmaker isn't just for elected officials but everyone. Eleanor Holmes Norton, the nonvoting representative for D. C., bitched about Representative Massie, the sponsor of the bill, of exploiting a tragedy, something an anti-gun Democrat would of course never do. She did get one thing right. The GOP needs to be consistent. Extend reciprocity to Federal property. It's only fair.
