NRA Head LaPierre’s Astonishingly Paranoid Article

The NRA’s message: America sucks, and you’re gonna die without a gun
Wingnuts • Views: 17,464

For the head of the NRA, Wayne LaPierre, America has turned into a nightmarish apocalyptic hellscape of roving drug gangs, terrorists, and looting minorities. Financial ruin. Tornadoes. Hurricanes. Riots. I don’t know how he even finds the strength to carry on.

And that description is not an exaggeration: Stand and Fight.

Hurricanes. Tornadoes. Riots. Terrorists. Gangs. Lone criminals. These are perils we are sure to face—not just maybe. It’s not paranoia to buy a gun. It’s survival. It’s responsible behavior, and it’s time we encourage law-abiding Americans to do just that.

This is the voice of America’s pro-gun movement — obsessed with paranoid fantasies and heavily armed.

What could possibly go right?

UPDATE at 2/14/13 10:53:44 am

To accompany this whacked-out editorial, the NRA has released a new video — a classic in the right wing fear-mongering genre, standing up for Americans who need to be able to spray dozens of bullets in all directions as quickly as possible.

This is why the “Bad Craziness” tag exists.

How have I survived these 46 years without a gunz? And I’ve lived among the poors. //

Because not even hurricanes or tornadoes will mess with you if you have a gun.

5 Sol Berdinowitz  Thu, Feb 14, 2013 10:55:53am

Once again, it you wish to own a gun to defend your home, that is your choice and your right under the 2nd Amendment. Jut be advised that it takes training and sound nerves to use on in a home-defense situation

It is a different matter if you think that you can carry those same “protections” around with you in public. It takes a much larger and harder-to-acquire skills set to be able to effectively defend yourself and others in a public place, especially a crowded public place in a state of panic over the sound of gunfire and the sight of dead and/or wounded.

Those skills include extensive training, experience, nerves of steel, high situational awareness and sound judgement under stress. They do not come automatically with your gun permit, nor are they required by most states to obtain a concealed carry permit.

After Hurricane Sandy, we saw the hellish world that the gun prohibitionists see as their utopia. Looters ran wild in south Brooklyn. There was no food, water or electricity. And if you wanted to walk several miles to get supplies, you better get back before dark, or you might not get home at all.

Hell, even Snake Plisken barely made it out.

Federal Appeals Court: For Profit Companies Cannot Flout Birth Control Law

Late last week, the United States Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit denied a for-profit company’s request for an order permitting it to ignore federal regulations requiring it to provide birth control coverage to its employees. As with many of these cases filed in other courts, the corporation argued that it should be immune to the law because the companies’ shareholders object to birth control on religious grounds. It should be noted that this is a preliminary order and that the court’s ultimate resolution of the case could be different. Nevertheless, a majority of the three judge panel concludes that “a secular, for-profit corporation, Conestoga has no free exercise rights under the First Amendment, and is not a ‘person’” for purposes of a federal law enhancing the protection available to people with religious objections to federal laws.

LaPierre’s lies-per-paragraph ratio is impressive.

The president flagrantly defies the 2006 federal law ordering the construction of a secure border fence along the entire Mexican border. So the border today remains porous not only to people seeking jobs in the U.S., but to criminals whose jobs are murder, rape, robbery and kidnapping. Ominously, the border also remains open to agents of al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations. Numerous intelligence sources have confirmed that foreign terrorists have identified the southern U.S. border as their path of entry into the country.

If he keeps the money flowing and helps keep the government from biting into the manufacturer’s profits, they’ll continue to pay him. It’s obvious the old antics weren’t working like they used to, especially with the rash of mass-shootings we’ve had, so LaPierre is pretty much just like most of the elected Republicans at this point: he’s scared of being replaced (primaried) by somebody that will go full-metal wingnut.

This conservative cynicism is getting really out of hand. It is as if the RW nut jobs are projecting their favorite rapture/end of the world scenarios onto reality and using these fantasies to set policy prescriptions.

Secret funding helped build vast network of climate denial thinktanks

Conservative billionaires used a secretive funding route to channel nearly $120m (£77m) to more than 100 groups casting doubt about the science behind climate change, the Guardian has learned.

The funds, doled out between 2002 and 2010, helped build a vast network of thinktanks and activist groups working to a single purpose: to redefine climate change from neutral scientific fact to a highly polarising “wedge issue” for hardcore conservatives.

The millions were routed through two trusts, Donors Trust and the Donors Capital Fund, operating out of a generic town house in the northern Virginia suburbs of Washington DC. Donors Capital caters to those making donations of $1m or more.

Whitney Ball, chief executive of the Donors Trust told the Guardian that her organisation assured wealthy donors that their funds would never by diverted to liberal causes.

Went on a cruise with The Husband a few years ago,from Ft Lauderdale to the Yucatan Peninsula and Key West. It was a smaller ship, but honestly,I don’t get the appeal. If I’m going to go somewhere I want to SEE the place, not just stop in a port for a bit and get stuck doing tourist trap stuff. The only other part I liked about it was sitting on the little balcony in the middle of the night and watching the stars. I’d never spend the money on one again. Why not just go to a Disney resort or something if you don’t want to plan anything on your own? It’s a bit claustrophobic IMO. I’d rather go somewhere and explore the hell out of the place on my own itinerary. I feel bad for the people involved, I’d guess they’ll get their money back and maybe a bonus.

Right-wing outlets were certainly hoping for more. Ayoub says that staffers from the Washington Free Beacon, which is backed by the conservative Center for American Freedom, showed up at ADC offices and harassed them for the tape.

“They came to our offices — threatening us, demanding information, arguing with security. They got very abrasive, very aggressive,” Ayoub said. “In fact, the FBI was in here last week because of those type of threats.”

“We asked them to leave a couple times, asked them to send a letter and an official request, which they did not do,” he told POLITICO.

Buddy who retired went on an Alaskan cruise. Now that’s something I’d do because he brought back some spectacular pictures. I think that’s more suited to living on a floating city than doing it in a tropical area. Never got the appeal of it.

I went on a cruise once, down to Ensenada from Long Beach. Carnival ship, though I’ve forgotten the name of it.

I have no problems with seasickness, fortunately. I can’t say the same about my former co-workers. Even the mild seas made them very uncomfortable.

It was sort of boring, in truth. And Ensenada isn’t exactly something to write home about. Though my friend and I found a great hole-in-the-wall restaurant that was dirt cheap. Then she wanted to go check out the nudie bars.

That’s REALLY nothing to write home about. Eech.

Yeah, the Alaskan thing would be different, I can’t think of anywhere else I’d enjoy the cruise environment. I’ve been to Mexico twice, once on a cruise and once just booking a hotel and renting a car and I enjoyed the hotel/car combo a lot more. Met the locals, ate great food, hung out off the beaten path a little. I’m leaving America to experience a different culture and place, not to surround myself with what I have at home.

FEMA?

Yeah, you know like when the government creates a superstorm or a hurricane or a whole bunch of tornadoes, and then comes to take away THERE GUNZ and put them in FEMA camps!

That’s one I’ll do at some point down the road a ways. One the family has been talking about is a riverboat cruise through Europe. It’s nothing like one of those giant ships, get to stop off in multiple places for a day and do some sight-seeing. Could never afford separate trips to each city, so 1 trip to see parts of everything sounds nice. Not sure yet.

The cruises we’ve been on, we did all that. The only difference was (as stated) we didn’t have to waste all the time with the packing, unpacking, checking in to and out of each port of call (hotel). The ship was used for sleeping, transportation and the occasional meal (between ports)

re: #60 blueraven

Oh come on…she was talking about AW. Not all guns.

Correct. The context was a 1994 bill banning the manufacture and import of assault weapons, but not their possession or sale. She’d have pushed for a ban on possession if she thought she could have achieved it. But the topic was assault weapons only, not all guns.

Honest argument. We can haz it?

Since I print I’m thinking of making up a shirt with a Waynes World theme..Any suggestions or art you may have let me know. This Waynes world is one that I don’t think we’ll ever see. This guy is like a maniacal energizer bunny.He is delivering a speech to a Turkey hunting group tonight and will offer a rebuttal to the SOTU…this should be a real hoot!

Or the river cruises in Europe,I’ve heard they are the best in service and scenery instead of just ocean and seabirds.

I’m just trying to conceive what possible situation I could find myself in at home where I would be unable to fend off a criminal invasion because I couldn’t hold more than 7 rounds of 50 cal.
