On another forum, considerably less-family friendly than Mr. Johnson’s here, my wife engaged yesterday a wingnut absolutist on guns.

He tried all the wingnut talking points, and was taken apart until he ran off. (I’m getting the opinion that engaging and showing idiocy for all to see is the way to go here.)

a) Claimed she didn’t know anything about guns so she can have no opinion on guns.
response - I’ve owned several pistols in my life and won a local shooting award. Keep my uterus out of your politics then.

b) AR-15s are not “weapons of war.”
response - (I helped her with the history of the rifle which she relayed to him)

c) The II Amendment guarantees gun rights
response - What about the first half of the amendment?
rebuttal - Nations are afraid to invade us because of our II Amendment rights
counter-rebuttal - nations can’t invade us because of two giant oceans. Anyway, look up the history of burning the White House.

d) Well-regulated means prepared and keeping your arms in working order
response - See the Whiskey Rebellion. See the Virginia Defense Force (the Virginia State Militia, which trains with the National Guard and Army Reserve). She also cited a number of Acts currently in force defining militia training requirements.

and finally, the go to when your arguments have been completely demolished:

e) You’re just a liberal.
response - I was a party officer of the Libertarian Party. Try again.

When that was over, he left. A whole bunch of people on that forum then congratulated my wife.

I see that some of our feckless media have posted lurid headlines declaring that various corporations have “banned” the NRA. They have done no such thing. No private company can ban anyone, nor can the government without some pretty elaborate and well-founded due process. These companies have not even stopped doing business with the NRA. What they have done is shut off some goodies they were providing to the NRA and its members, chiefly member discounts. It doesn’t say much for the intelligence, the sanity or the intent of these outlets when they tell a bunch of armed paranoids that their sacred institutions have been “banned.”

This partly articulates what’s been bugging me about the post Parkland situation.

The other thing that has me on edge is the the fickle, viral, nature of our how modern society’s collective attention deficit disorder never seems to fully digest events and information anymore, instead chewing on them like gum and spitting them out once the flavor is gone. It’s bad enough that America as a whole is seemingly incapable of introspection without processing other people into archetypes and viewing them through the funhouse mirror of instant celebrity. But when those other people are traumatized kids who never asked to be thrust onto the public stage it starts to feel as if in spite of how seemingly well they’re handling it we are all ongoing accessories to their victimization.

I’ve heard some journalists say that before and I think it’s a terrible argument. I get that actual reporters (vs commentators) may not want to appear publicly partisan but refusing to even exercise their right to cast a private ballot strikes me as a weird affectation, a pretentious show of impartiality that like method acting seeks to overwrite the true self by suppressing it.

That goes back to my mother insisting the same as a Navy veteran. She finally ditched that attitude in the last election when Donald Trump became the GOP nominee and Tammy Duckworth was running to unseat Mark Kirk.

To the best of my knowledge, that’s the first time she ever voted.

That one is part of the mythology of wingnut America. I’ve related the story here of a seventh grade class I had while I was substitute teaching. The question came up about the world ending in 2000, then 15 years in the future. When I scoffed, not one but several of the kids insisted that it was in the Bible.
I told them to get a Bible and show me where it said that. They insisted adamantly that they couldn’t do that because Bibles were banned in public schools. I was taken aback since I had actually expected some of the kids to have Bibles with them, as religious kids commonly did when I was in school.
I then detailed 3 of them to go to the library with a note I had written for them to give to the librarian. “Please loan these students one copy of as many different versions of the Bible as you can spare. I will return them at the end of the period.”
The detail left, fully expecting to come up empty handed. Others thought I might be arrested or at least fired for trafficking in contraband on school property. The detail returned shortly, loaded down with assorted Bibles and (at the librarian’s initiative) a gigantic concordance. I put them to work trying to find the reference to the world ending in the year 2000. I don’t know if they were more surprised at the absence of such a prediction or at the open presence of the banned Bibles.

re: #12 Shiplord Kirel, live from behind wingnut lines

Interestingly, our own public library had no Bible when my wife became the Library Director, other than a post Civil War era concordance Bible that was in a display case.

After she’d inventoried the library’s books and determined there was no Bible for patrons to read, she ordered a couple different versions of it for the Public Library.

She got basically two types of comments about that from people here:

a) You’re an atheist, why would you order Bibles?
b) The library is owned by the village, I didn’t know it could buy Bibles with tax money.

These kids had probably been programmed by their parents and preachers to believe that Bibles are banned in public schools, and praying is not allowed. I kept a Bible and a copy of the Koran in my classroom and used them when I taught information about the world’s major religions in the world history classes I taught. There is so much BS that certain Americans believe about public schools, and none of it is true. I had students who brought their Bibles to class and read them after they completed a quiz or a test before we moved on to new material. There were Bible study sessions before school on public school property, and there was a Fellowship of Christian Athletes organization at the same school.

And the first argument (you’re an atheist, why would you order Bibles) makes even less sense.

She was the Library Director. The job includes, uh, ordering books you think the patrons will read.

I just went to the library catalogue Website (my wife wrote it since the state required being on the Web as part of the accreditation process, and our town couldn’t afford the hideously expensive commercial software available). No Qur’an (by any spelling).

I asked her just now about that. Was she afraid she’d be burned at the stake by the village or something? Her answer was no, I don’t think there is anyone here that would be interested in it, so I’m not going to waste the town’s money on a book no one will read.

(Now that the library is on the Web, if someone does want to read the Qur’an they can order it by interlibrary loan. I inaugurated that here with the first book ordered: Sam Harris’s “The Moral Landscape.”)

Atheists Hate God (shameless page promotion, goes to Cynics for a Better Tomorrow, Big List of Apologetics Fails)

I don’t hate any god since I don’t believe in one. I don’t hate religions either. I despise what some of their believers do in the name of their gods.

Man Crashed Truck into Planned Parenthood Police Say (goes to the New York Times, Feb. 17).

Short version, he stole a truck from a bakery and used it to ram the lobby of a Planned Parenthood clinic. (I’m guessing he’s not an atheist or a Muslim.) He injured two people in the clinic (including a woman who is pregnant and was there for a pre-natal checkup).

He was charged with a variety of crimes involved in the clinic attack, and grand theft for the bakery truck.

As Trump’s DACA Deadline Bears Down, Dreamers Choose Fight Over Flight

“There is no question that being public, you are way more protected,” said Cesar Vargas, an outspoken immigration advocate who became New York State’s first ever undocumented attorney in 2016. “When you get involved in the movement, you have a whole supportive community: People who will raise money to pay your bond if you’re detained, people who will connect you with reliable counsel, people who will watch your children if you are picked up. The more you hide, the more immigration can come in and make you disappear.”

We’ve kind of alluded to it, and some have probably said it explicitly, but the purpose of the cop was to be a deterrent. The fact that the shooter went in anyway means that the idea of guns being a deterrent is a failure. Arming the teachers will not change that. Putting ten cops on campus will not change that.

Is anyone surprised?

Republicans want to make fixes, but Democrats aren’t rushing to help them.

The glitches in the new tax law are starting to pile up.

“This is not normal,” said Marty Sullivan, chief economist at the nonpartisan Tax Analysts. “There’s always this kind of stuff, but the order of magnitude is entirely different.”

Some Democrats say they will want to widely reopen the law, as part of any effort to clean up the legislative miscues.

“We’re not going to say to Republicans, ‘Oh tell us what you want to do,” said Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), who sits on the tax-writing Finance Committee. “We want to make the bill better, not just correct whatever technical fix is needed.”


For now, Republicans say they are collecting examples of things that need to be corrected.

Some of the glitches are simple drafting errors. Others would have unintended consequences. Still others are things in the law that aren’t clear.

One snafu, which could potentially affect President Donald Trump’s real estate business, prevents people making various types of improvements to non-residential real estate from immediately deducting their entire cost, as lawmakers intended. An apparent typo means they have to instead take those breaks piecemeal over the next 39 years.

That is already squeezing some companies’ finances, said Rachelle Bernstein, tax counsel at the National Retail Federation. “There are real economic implications right now,” she said.

This is why you take time drafting laws, you morons.

re: #23 Anymouse 🌹

I don’t hate any god since I don’t believe in one. I don’t hate religions either. I despise what some of their believers do in the name of their gods.

Confession that I don’t really relate anywhere, but it fits the theme of “why care when one has no belief?”

I was never baptized as a child. When I met my wife, she was a catholic. A little more than christmas and easter catholic, but not much. Her parents, however were every sunday church goers who desired their only (adopted) daughter to be married in a catholic ceremony. Because the bit above about not being baptized, that couldn’t happen. Sadness ensued. On their part. Being of the “why care POV” and to make future wife “happy” (she actually didn’t care, but) I was “baptized.”

Was there any truth in the ceremony?
Was there deception?
Did god smite me?
Am I a better person?
Does it matter?

Anyone can answer those questions as they wish. From my perspective, it was whatever time I spent getting oil smeared on my head and then life continues as normal. The better half has evolved her thinking over time (I may have been an influence, or not) to pretty much think that her religious upbringing was superstition and better left behind.

Surely Erick and the NRA have done nothing for real grief. Well, that would be besides making themselves feel good by rotely saying “thoughts and prayers” and moving on to the next time.

Not really. It is very matter of fact. I took away that she fucked up a lot and lied, a bunch.

Greets and saluts from the Resistance in the NYC metro area. Trump is once again trying to show that if there’s a stupid position to take, he’ll take the even worse one.

It’s not just Trump though. The GOP/NRA are intent on showing everyone how bugnuts insane they are about the unfettered access to guns and their sheer hypocrisy about everything.

Oh, and in the GOP rush to pass their tax scam, they drafted it with so many errors that it’s going to need a cleanup bill to fix the provisions. When the Obamacare legislation was enacted, the GOP used any drafting issues as an excuse to try and destroy the bill.

Now the GOP wants Democrats to help rescue their tax scam.

Oh shut up Erickson.

Damn these conservatives are really showing their asses over these kids. But all America is getting a good lesson how vile they all are.

He has the nerve to criticize a student and say get him a grief counsellor.

Hey Puffy…maybe this is how the students are dealing with the grief. They are channeling it into political action so they hope they can prevent further grief of others.

Surely Erick and the NRA have done nothing for real grief. Well, that would be besides making themselves feel good by rotely saying “thoughts and prayers” and moving on to the next time.

And they claim they are Christians. Erick’s whole diatribe about a “bully kid” is far far away from Christian thinking. Hey, maybe they aren’t real Christians afterall.

These kids have really gotten to them. Seems a little hard to understand, other than they obviously feel very threated, as if the 2nd Amendment is going to go up in smoke at any moment, what with the GOP controlling a large majority of state houses, Congress and the WH.

I’m glad the NRA is lashing out because the rest of the country is seeing what we’ve seen for years from Dana, Wayne, Ted, and co.

I hope that police departments across the country see it as well.

The NRA as it exists today is an extension of conservatism, therefore anyone will be sacrificed to their religion.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office is not towing the cult line, so it is coming under attack from GOP politicians and the NRA, while liberals and teenagers who survived a mass-shooting are either defending them or asking to wait until the evidence is in.

The PC culture of conservatism could not likely be more apparent with the response. They must respond, because teenagers are framing the narrative in a way that paints the NRA poorly. The NRA’s strategy has always been to be silent after mass-murder, but now they have to respond, and they’re using the only weapon conservatism has (attack the messenger, not the arguments).

I really hope the police, the military, &c are paying attention. The NRA and conservatives do not have your back, and will sacrifice you in a moment to conserve their power.

It is going to be incredibly interesting when Mueller finally says “fuck it” and issues a subpoena. How Trump responds to it is going to be an incredible test of our constitution. The least troubling outcome would be him testifying (not likely). The second least would be him objecting and the challenge getting run up to the Supreme Court, but given the precedent from the Clinton case in the 90’s, I’m guessing the Court would find it valid. Then comes whether Trump would still refuse (a la his hero Andrew Jackson - the Chief Justice has issued his opinion, now let him enforce it), whether he would order Mueller fired (Saturday Night Massacre II: the Stupidening), and ultimately whether Congress would do anything about it.

It’s the users of the bank that are a problem as much as the bank itself. If Russia and Trump were using the bank for money laundering purposes that’s the problem right there - not that the bank itself was German.

The NRA has been successful year in and year out in preventing any gun control legislation since the expiration of the assault weapons ban. Their strategy has worked for them to date — so far they have no reason to expect it to fail now. The GOP Congress and Senate with the help of a few petrified Dems will not pass any meaningful legislation as long as they are in power.

Trump insists, the NRA makes a half-assed stand, Congress passes the bill and Trump and Congress look like they’re tough on the NRA. The fact that Trump had lunch with Cox and LaPierre makes me suspicious of collusion.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office is not towing the cult line, so it is coming under attack from GOP politicians and the NRA, while liberals and teenagers who survived a mass-shooting are either defending them or asking to wait until the evidence is in.

The PC culture of conservatism could not likely be more apparent with the response. They must respond, because teenagers are framing the narrative in a way that paints the NRA poorly. The NRA’s strategy has always been to be silent after mass-murder, but now they have to respond, and they’re using the only weapon conservatism has (attack the messenger, not the arguments).

I really hope the police, the military, &c are paying attention. The NRA and conservatives do not have your back, and will sacrifice you in a moment to conserve their power.

In my opinion the students are in a way ignoring the NRA and doing an end-around run to sane America. They in effect are making the NRA powerless. Sure they mention them, but really you can tell their target is America. They’ve already told the NRA to shove it…you are no longer listened too.

The students are not portraying the NRA poorly, they are just stating facts. The NRA’s response is portraying themselves poorly.

Isn’t it great? The students are showing America there is nothing to be scared of regarding the NRA. The students are showing politicians what to do since for years the politicians seem to have let the NRA step all over them.

The greatest sign that the NRA is being hurt big time is all of a sudden they do something drastic like force Wayne LaPierre out, shut people like the Dana Loesch and Ted Nugent up and try to come off more welcoming and understanding.

I happen to think very serious discussions are going on at NRA headquarters, and all kinds of moves they could make to come out of this intact with some power left are up for consideration. If they are too arrogant to be looking at all of that, then they will suffer even more damage.

Watch for a tone change from the NRA. It would not surprise me if it is coming. They have their own butts to save. IMO.

re: #231 lawhawk

But the NRA and the GOP still thinks they should have unrestricted access to firearms.

I have trouble keeping up with their whipsaw reasoning.

a) The II Amendment is an absolute right (so much so the Missouri legislature passed a bill to allow the blind to purchase firearms)

b) The problem isn’t restrictions on purchases or comprehensive background checks, it’s “mentally unstable” people are purchasing firearms.

c) Remove restrictions on those people, when they are most often the victims of gun violence, not the perpetrators.

re: #204 KGxvi

The most interesting part of Constitutional law is when conflicting rights come into contact. This is one of those examples. Fundamentalists would argue that being forced to hire/cater to gay employees/customers would violate their freedom of religion; however, their actions (religiously inspired or not) also violate the rights of said gay people.

While the Zarda decision* is certainly a positive, on its face, It’s still not unalloyed “good news” for civil rights, IMO -just another hurdle cleared for now.
For one thing, it’s very likely Big Hate is going to finance an appeal to the SCOTUS: which will be the last barrier to clear. And disgracefully, said appeal will almost certainly have the backing of the Government : as the linked article says:

The Justice Department had injected itself into the case even though it wasn’t a party to the lawsuit and doesn’t normally involve itself in private employment disputes.

A definitive ruling that sexual orientation is covered by the 1964 CRA - if upheld - would be an enormous BFD: and one sure to work the Religious Right into an even-more-hysterical lather than they already are. Yeah, “War on Christianity” rhetoric is moronic, but I’m guessing that’s the precise tack they’ll take to try to kill this ruling (political “insulation” of the Court notwithstanding).

* I noticed in the text of the ruling, the actual plaintiffs seem to be Donald Zarda’s estate - presumably he is deceased??

Congressman James Langevin, D-R.I., was just a teenager when his life changed forever because of a gun.

“I was a police cadet, 16-years-old in the police locker room, you would think one of the safest environments that you could be in and yet an accident happened and I became paralyzed,” Langevin said on Jansing & Co.

A police officer accidentally fired a weapon in the locker room, the bullet ricocheted off one of the lockers and lodged in his neck.

Trump insists, the NRA makes a half-assed stand, Congress passes the bill and Trump and Congress look like they’re tough on the NRA. The fact that Trump had lunch with Cox and LaPierre makes me suspicious of collusion.

NYPD officers hit their intended targets in shooting situations about 18% of the time. In fact, they don’t make the Mendoza line.

And the NYPD requires cops to get recertified in firearms training 2x a year.

Rick Santorum was on CNN’s “State of the Union” yesterday, so Wonkette weighed in on the former Pennsylvania senator’s thoughts. They were not good thoughts.

Rick Santorum Demands Single Moms Face Justice for Shooting Up Florida School (goes to Wonkette), more after the lede:

On CNN’s “State of the Union” yesterday, former Pennsylvania senator and for unknown reasons current interviewee Rick Santorum placed America’s gun-death epidemic squarely where it belongs: on those damn single moms. Said Santorum, “These kids come from broken homes without dads.” It’s just so obvious that Santorum is amazed no one’s picking up on it:

That is not something we’re talking about and that is the commonality […] We want to talk about things we can work together on? How about working together to try to see what we can do to get more dads involved in the lives of the kids.

Guns don’t kill people, broken homes kill people. Spoilsport Jake Tapper had to go and point out that the Parkland, Florida, mass shooter’s parents didn’t divorce; Nikolas Cruz’s father actually died of a heart attack when Cruz was young. Still, if you think about it, that was pretty irresponsible of him; if he’d known how the boy would turn out, he might have taken better care of himself.

These same “friends” who tell my wife I am not a real man have husbands that don’t cook and who can’t be left alone with their children (because they don’t know how to parent - it is always the wife’s duty).

I know that these men would sooner starve, sitting alone at home, just waiting for their significant other to come home than be an adult and effing cook for themselves.

Florida, where a 19 year old white guy who gets expelled from school for violent outbursts and is reported to the local police and even the FBI as a threat to others can still buy guns and ammo, but a black kid packing Skittles and iced tea can be stalked and gunned down with impunity for standing his ground.

That depends on where you signed up to get your Sorosbucks. Did you enroll via the Black Nationalist Conspiracy or the Anti-Colonialist Terrorism Underground? Some of old George’s crisis fronts are better-managed than others and pay much quicker. I’ve heard the International Jewish Conspiracy and the Illuminati have the fastest turnaround, but the latter is supposed to be hard to get into.

The President at the time was cool, collected, civil, and answered every question in a well informed manner. Man I miss the Big O.

He turns 4 months old tomorrow. Kid is sick with something. It looks like a strep rash (which would make sense as our daycare lady had a bout of it a few weeks back). At the moment he won’t eat very much, the rash has a “scarlet fever” look to it - on his chest, but no fever. He also just isn’t acting his normal happy self … in short we go to the pediatrician in a couple hours.

I took him in last week and they said the rash (which was a different looking one) was eczema. Fingers-crossed its nothing serious.

… all 680 public schools in the state’s 55 counties are closed because of the ongoing teachers’ strike there.
West Virginia employs nearly 20,000 classroom teachers in its public schools and has more than 277,000 students enrolled.
Teachers hit the picket lines last week, demanding higher wages and better benefits. In 2016, West Virginia ranked 48th in the nation for average teacher salary, according to the National Education Association.

Gov. Jim Justice signed legislation Wednesday giving teachers a pay raise, but educators said it wasn’t enough and it didn’t address other areas of concern like insurance and health care costs, so they went on strike.

Corporations cannot attack conservatives and expect us not to fight back.

Idiot conservatives, please take note: THIS is something that is a LOT closer to censorship than Twitter deleting some bots.

Conservatives are totally on board with censorship as long as it’s minorities or liberals who are censored. The only speech they want is speech that agrees with them. Trump is a perfect model of this: everyone in his presence has to praise and/or agree with him; otherwise he doesn’t hear what you say or will tweet insults at you.

Why do they even have schools in WV? All the boys are going to get jobs mining beautiful, clean coal and the girls will become housewives and widows.

School is pointless.

They need to learn the letter ‘R’ for voting purposes.

I figure a lot of the folks who won’t get their NRA disoucnts on rental cars can just go with AARP or some other discount.

According to Wikipedia the Lt Gov also appoints two seats on the Committee on Assignments (and breaks ties there) and three seats to the Committee on Administrative Affairs (where he’s also a full member and casts votes.) Those powers give him some horse trading ability to whip votes.

re: #487 Blind Frog Belly White

This is truly the stupidest thing ever said about school shootings. Almost every school shooter dies in the shooting. Usually because they kill themselves when they’re about to get caught. Some are killed in shoot outs. They almost universally expect to die.

which is why a goal should be preventing the shooting from starting in the first place

Funny how you separated “law-abiding gun owners and NRA members” are you suggesting NRA members are not also law-abiding gun owners?

yes some of the 5m members are in fact not law-abiding
