According to the NY Times the cold-blooded killer immigrant from Korea, who massacred 32 people in Virginia should not have been able to purchase guns. After all what are these stupid well-written gun laws for if not to prevent just what happened. Oh, wait a minute: A crazy person bent on murder doesn’t really care about our stupid well-written laws does he? A crazy person generally does what the voices tell him to do.

Mr. Bonnie, the director of the University of Virginia Institute on Law, Psychiatry and Public Policy, said his panel would look into the matter. “We are going to fix this,” he said.

I do feel a lot better by this forceful move on the part of “Law, Psychiatry, and Public Policy,” however. I feel reassured by Mr. Bonkers  Bonnie that “(They) are going to fix this.” Maybe he can put the fellow pictured below back in his barn, while he’s at it, or a least try to figure out what a barn is for. Then Mr Bonnie might have his committee investigate whether or not it would be a good idea whether or not to have a latch on the door.  

Better yet why don’t the folks in Virginia try to determine if the fellow pictured above really needs to be in a barn. They obviously can’t tell from their own criteria that a mental patient who is determined by their own laws to be a “danger to himself and others,” shouldn’t be walking among us with the ability to purchase guns.

WASHINGTON, April 20 — Under federal law, the Virginia Tech gunman Seung-Hui Cho should have been prohibited from buying a gun after a Virginia court declared him to be a danger to himself in late 2005 and sent him for psychiatric treatment, a state official and several legal experts said Friday.

“Should have been prohibited…”  Forget the should’s and ought’s of reality  – get back to the important stuff. 

Has the I-man been fired yet. If not, why not? Did Pelosi really kiss that guy in Syria? Does anyone know? Hey, who’s the Father of the what’shername’s baby? What happened on American Idol last week, we need to know these real things?

Oh Wow! I almost forgot! Talk about reality: did you hear what that actor, oh what is his name? oh yah – I remember, Alec Baldwin called his 11 or 12 (his words not mine) year old daughter? He called her a “little pig.” Talk about child abuse. If the I-man did get fired, shouldn’t Baldwin be looking for another career?

The New York Times this morning has an interesting article about the way “the law” limits options (read ties the hands) of University Officials.

Federal privacy and antidiscrimination laws restrict how universities can deal with students who have mental health problems. […]

“[…]What we really need to do is encourage students to seek mental health treatment if they need it, to remove any barriers to their getting help, destigmatize it, and make it safe, so they know there won’t be negative consequences,” said Karen Bower, a lawyer at the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law in Washington, who represented Mr. Nott. […]

“[…]They can’t really kick someone out because they’re writing papers about weird topics, even if they seem withdrawn and hostile,” said Dr. Richard Kadison, chief of mental health services at Harvard University. “Most state laws are pretty clear: you can only bring students to hospitals if there is imminent risk to themselves or someone else, so universities are in a bit of a bind that way.” […]

Some of what is quoted in this story is indicative of one thing, I believe, our legal system is insane and should be sent for counseling. For instance, If I have read Dr. Sanity correctly over the years, someone who is insane does not necessarily know that fact. 

If I wear my protective tinfoil hat to keep the mothership from contacting me, and you don’t wear the hat I made for you, I’m not crazy you are.  Everyone knows you are going to get your brain-waves altered. You are absolutely insane.

To prove you are insane it is only necessary you read “the law,” you have allowed to be codified in the United States of America.

Lawyers and Judges,  have twisted so-called individual rights to mean you are not allowed to tell me I’m crazy, let alone do anything about it.

“What we really need to do is encourage students to seek mental health treatment if they need it…,” 

Herein lies the insanity; if I believe the mother ship is sending me brain altering signals does it not follow that a non-insane person would reason I am incapable of recognizing my need for help. In my world I’m not crazy: You are. You are the ones ignoring the signals from the mothership, therefore I must take drastic action.

However, you don’t know I’m considering drastic action because you have not considered the effectiveness of my tin-foil hat. It works, and it works quite well, thank you. You and your kind cannot penetrate the protection of my hat. My hat is awesome, without it I would be crazy.

You can’t possibly know that my hat has informed me to bide my time, act like you act, and on the appointed day carry out the “final solution,” as outlined in the prime directive.  Moreover, even if you do penetrate the force field my hat arrays, you have written some kind of stupid law which says:

“you can only bring students to hospitals if there is imminent risk to themselves or someone else.”

That sentence should speak volumes to sane people, but it obviously doesn’t. Since you can’t know what kind of risk I am unless I tell you in advance I will not get help – will I? Of course, I’m not going to tell you about the communications I receive through my hat because I still understand well enough to know you will attempt to stop me and the prime directive says my mission must be carried out no matter what.

You have made a law tying your hands as regards me, and you have also made it a crime to defend yourselves from me. Who is the crazy person here? I know it isn’t me, therefore, it must be you. Duh!

I have to go now, the mothership has penetrated my shield and I’m getting some very strange instructions that the prime directive says I must carry out.

If I were a student at Virginia Tech and this crazy writing was a Creative Writing assignment, what can you do? Nothing. 

And you call me crazy.

Supposedly Virginia has some kind of law banning guns on college grounds. It doesn’t appear to be working very well. (You know what I’m talking about). It does however, give so-called law makers a few headlines. After all isn’t that the most important activity for elected officials: Posture for the cameras, and suck-up to the cowardly, and the moronic who believe “gun laws,” solve problems.

 Laws against things never seem to work very well. Israel has laws against suicide bombers. We know how those are working out, don’t we? We have all sorts of laws against guns and they do not seem to work out very well.

I’m getting older so of course I really don’t care a whole lot about any of this, other than I hate to see people killed, when by law they are not allowed to defend themselves. I would, however, like to hear an anti-gun person, just once before I die, say: “You should carry a gun for self-protection because, drug dealers, thieves, murderers, the psychopathic, will use them when they go on rampage. You really need to be able to defend yourselves.”

We all know I am more apt to see a pig flying into my tree to roost before that will happen. Therefore, to any who might be inclined to come around my neighborhood or the mall where I shop or the nearby school with evil intent be advised; I may or may not have this (see picture below) concealed on my person and I will use it to defend myself, my neighbor, the school kids, the innocent Moms nearby.

Oh, BTW, I use the softest lead bullets I can safely fire. Do you have any idea what those will do you on the way in and out of your flesh? It is not pretty and whatever part of you I hit probably won’t work very well if it ever heals.

So for those of you who may be thinking about mayhem in my vicinity, try to remember I will defend myself, my wife, my kids and their kids, their friends – well you get the idea.

While I’m on the subject.

The young man pictured above is not Marshall Dillon. He is not paid to confront criminally insane people who are shooting other people. He is paid to clean up the mess left by those folks. If you are ever part of a mess being created for him to clean up, you had better have a gun of your own. He is not coming to your rescue. He breaks down doors when the shooting is over – not before. That hero crap is for fantasy TV.

This young man is going to hide behind a tree, a building, a truck, a barrel, anything – and I don’t blame him – because even though he has a gun he doesn’t want to get shot either. If you are right in front of him pointing a gun at him, then he will shoot. It’s called self defense. What a novel concept!

Isn’t it time we pass a law requiring our law-makers to be examined by several doctors to determine if they in fact have a brain, you know the actual organ,  before they are sworn into office? I fear many of our law makers lack this vital body component.

The only gun law we should have is the one requiring everyone over the age of 21 to own, learn to shoot, and carry a gun. Those under 21 but over 12 may do so if they

Perhaps these kinds of incidents would still occur but I would feel safer – not more wary – knowing you might have a gun to protect yourself and me.

The scariest feeling in the world, if you stop to think about it, is knowing that psychopaths, drug dealers, thieves, walk among us and may have weapons and we law abiding citizens do not. That’s scary.

This is too good to pass up. I get the Opinion Journal from the WSJ each day and it is one of the best reads on the Internet. I probably say that because I agree with the opinions of the crew who put this together each day: Most of the time I agree.

Today’s output by James Taranto and Crew was great. He, and they, went through the Imus thing and did what thinking people everywhere are doing and that is wondering why the Poverty Pimps Jacksongue and Sharptongue get a pass.

Anyway I just couldn’t figure if this bit was satirical, or serious so I thought I would comment:

Taranto & Company say:

“First it was Imus. Now another talk-show host is under attack for insensitivity, United Press International reports:

A spokesman for Alzheimer’s patients said U.S. TV talk show host Larry King may owe an apology for his recent remarks about the disease.

Patrick Moffett, author of an Alzheimer’s book, in a news release called on King to apologize for insensitive remarks about Alzheimer’s disease he made during a recent interview with The New York Times. At one point [King] said he would retire “(if), God forbid, I had an onset of dementia or Alzheimer’s. That would be it.”

“I’m still a Larry King fan,” Moffett said. “I just think he should be a little more sensitive about Alzheimer’s for the sake of all of us that are dealing with this dreadful disease.”

But King probably won’t suffer Imus’s fate. Alzheimer’s patients generally are willing to forgive and forget.”

The emphasized sentence at the end is what hit my old funny bone. Are they trying to be funny or did that just slip out.  “Alzheimer’s patients generally are willing to forgive and forget.”  That cracks me up. What else can Alzheimer’s patients do but forget? That’s what Alzheimer’s is.  Forgiving, on the other hand,  is difficult for them as they generally forget there is anything to forgive. Where was I. Oh yes, I remember.. then once the grass gets to about 2 inches in length….

Amadamnutjob of Iran said:

“You will know that among the detainees there is one lady who is a mother of a child. Why is it that the most difficult work like patrolling at sea should be given to a woman?

“Why is there no respect for motherhood? Why does the West not value its women?”

Winston Churchill said before World War II:

England has been offered a choice between war and shame. She has chosen shame and will get war.
Winston Churchill

Amadinejad’s question, although uttered by a lunatic, is prescient in that he has looked into his Persian crystal ball and seen the hollowness that is Western Civilization. What used to be called Men in the West no longer have the testosterone produced courage to make war. So we send our young women and mothers. To rationalize our cowardice we call it  “equal opportunity.”

Castration of Western Manhood, through mind-manipulation (brainwashing) by Feminazi’s, as Limbaugh would call them, has to be one of the most disgusting, sick, cowardly, anti-woman, irrational, religions since the idea that killing babies by abortion is a right.

The charade played by the West in this so-called “war against terror,” is a crime against humanity. War is not a game. Churchill knew this Chamberlain did not. Amadeinejad knows this the West does not. The West once again has chosen shame.

If we do not kill those who need to be killed in Iran today, this will be the view seen from the suburbs of London, Washington D.C., and other cities in the West as soon as the Persians are able. They believe in Islam and it believes Dhimmis must submit or be killed.

If we do not somehow regain the courage of real MEN; kill those who would kill us, before they have the weaponry to accomplish that; our Western women better begin shopping for Burka’s while they are still allowed to drive. Persian branded Islam does not tolerate women driving or being seen in public uncovered.

The “girly-men” who now rule in the West will no longer have their pornography, or scantily clad women to ogle. What will these wusses do then? They can’t turn to each other as they do in SanFrancisco, the Persians will hang them.

We had better awaken from our stupor, become Men again, and kill those who need to be killed. History informs that is War: Kill or be killed. What is going on in the Middle East is not war, it is a game and it will result in either the humiliation or death of the West by a bunch of rag tag, screwballs.  

**** credit where credit is due: Dr. Sanity coined “Amadamnutjob.” She is great! ****

The Bookworm Room linked to this from Melanie Phillips. Ms. Phillips is a Brit who shares in the belief that the West may have sunk to low to pull itself from the “miry clay.”(Psalm 40)

When so-called fighting people haven’t the stamina to resist at all I have to ask why are we wasting so much time money and young lives? We obviously don’t have the intestinal fortitude to go it alone; That’s why we are so concerned about what the Eurowusses think. Why not just return home with our tails between our legs – as the Pelosi Democrats want – and wait our demise wallowing in the cowardice they make so evident.

Ms. Phillips says:

First the sailors allowed themselves to be taken without a fight. Then they abased themselves before the genocidal Iranian regime and – notwithstanding the duress we now know they were under – behaved subsequently with an astounding absence of decorum and propriety which set the seal on Britain’s humiliation as a senile and toothless lion. Now we learn that they are to even be allowed to tell their story in the media, with the express permission of a defence high command which, in granting such exemption from the normal rules, grotesquely linked the behaviour of these 15 grovelling sailors to British heroes who were in receipt of the Victoria Cross.

The Iranians now know from this debacle that they can make trouble for the west with impunity. They can take hostages, smuggle arms into Iraq, blow up British soldiers and even go nuclear — and no-one will do a damn thing to stop it.

For whatever reason this morning I cannot help but mentally make historical Biblical connections to this event as I alluded to at the start of this post when I quoted Psalms 40:2.

I suppose because of the locale in which this is all unfolding, and to whom the Brit’s were bowing, I was reminded of what Daniel supposedly saw concerning this same Persian or was it Medean empire so long ago. Perhaps he was actually looking not into the near future from his day, but into the far distant future of Britain, Europe and America to our own day.

Dan 2:42 And [as] the toes of the feet [were] part of iron, and part of clay, [so] the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.


Dan 2:43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men (read this as Muslims – ed.): but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

The same Bible I got these quotes from says there is nothing new under the sun that all is vanity . (Ecc 12:8 Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all [is] vanity).

I think Solomon may have been wiser than we gave him credit for. The vanity of the Euro/Brit wusses in their so-called resolve reminds me of the “dog returning to it’s vomit.” (That’s in the Bible as well – you can look it up).  

I know Pelosi’s recent suckup to Assad in Syria makes we want to vomit.

John Edwards wants to be President but not bad enough to actually think about what he says: “…Democrats to give Fox [News] a platform….” I would have sworn Fox already had a platform. Don’t they own a T.V. channel or something? 

Edwards complaint is that Fox is not “objective,” in that a debate featuring him would be used to advance some “right-wing” agenda. Being objective means to most of us that we should examine all of the facts, try to determine variances in viewpont, figure out which hold the most validity when compared to reality, then decide which side is believed to be “objectively” true. At least that’s what I think it means.   

  • “We just called the CBC [Congressional Black Caucus] to let them know that we’re looking forward to their debate with CNN but we’re not going to participate in the proposed debate with Fox [News Channel]. There’s just no reason for Democrats to give Fox a platform to advance the right-wing agenda while pretending to be objective.”–Edwards campaign statement, April 6

If Mr. Edwards lived by those kinds of criteria I might be more sympathetic to his beliefs and those of his Missus. However, after reading this:

There Goes the Neighborhood
“Elizabeth Edwards says she is scared of the ‘rabid, rabid Republican’ who owns property across the street from her Orange County [N.C.] home–and she doesn’t want her kids going near the gun-toting neighbor,” the Associated Press reports:

Edwards, the wife of Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, particularly recalls the time neighbor Monty Johnson brought out a gun while chasing workers investigating a right of way near his property. The Edwards family has yet to meet Johnson in person.

“I wouldn’t be nice to him, anyway,” Edwards said in an interview. “I don’t want my kids anywhere near some guy who, when he doesn’t like somebody, the first thing he does is pull a gun out. It scares the business out of me.”

Johnson says he appropriately brandished the gun to protect himself from trespassers. Mrs. Edwards has more grievances against her neighbor:

Edwards views Johnson as a “rabid, rabid Republican” who refuses to clean up his “slummy” property just to spite her family, whose lavish 28,000-square-foot estate is nearby on 102 wooded acres.

Johnson, 55, acknowledges his Republican roots. But he takes offense to the suggestion he has purposefully left his property, including an old garage he leases for use as a car shop, in dilapidated condition.

Johnson said he has lived his entire life on the property, which he said his family purchased before the Great Depression. He said he’s spent a lot of money to try and fix up the 42-acre tract.

“I have to budget. I have to live within my means,” Johnson said. “I don’t have millions of dollars to fix the place.”

There are two Americas, and Elizabeth Edwards would just as soon not have to look at the other one. Maybe that’s why she is so eager to live in the White House, the ultimate gated community.

So there you have it. Mrs E, is an elite, snob, bitch, who would not deign to lower herself to try to get to know her neighbor nor ascertain why he acted in the manner he did.

Why does Mrs. Edwards remarks remind me so much of Hillary and Mrs. Kerry? One begins to wonder doesn’t one?

Whatever became of the Democratic Party which at least pretended to like the little guy? Oh, I should take that back. Democrats still pander to the “po black folk,” don’t they? Maybe I have them all wrong.
