Protests Spread After Report of U.S. Desecration of Koran

How special. Anyone doubt that Islam needs to come into the 21st century? Hell, I'd be happy if they'd embrace the 18th century as a start.

I am sick and tired of hearing the whining and complaining around the world when the United States does something that some third world asshole finds offensive. How about drinking a nice can of STFU, eh?

I don't recall seeing folks on the Gaza strip upset when the planes hit the WTC. In fact, I seem to recall seeing those fanatics dancing in the streets.

I also don't recall seeing any Christian martyrs blowing themselves up (not even the Catholics!) when pieces of "art" went on display showing holy images to the Christian faith imersed in urine, or stained with feces.

But hey! Whenever the big bad United States of American offends some turd somewhere in the world, let's start burning the flag and blowing up innocent civilians.

Typical BS , and frankly, I'm sick and tired of it. Screw them and the horse they rode in on.

Print Story: Rice: Gun Rights Important As Free Speech on Yahoo! News

Print Story: Rice: Gun Rights Important As Free Speech on Yahoo! News

Oh my gosh! A politician that makes sense, can think for herself and doesn't simply blow the party line.

The 2nd Amendment is not about sport, hunting or even concealed carry. It is about preventing a repressive government from taking control of the people. It's about the people having a means to defend itself from such a government.

And Condi understands this concept. I know a lot of people don't like Condi, I don't understand why, but she sounds pretty smart to me. And obviously she has a spine because she's not pandering to the gun-nazis by trying to find the illustrious "middle ground."

Way to go Condi!

Texas cheerleaders can still 'Drop It Like It's Hot'

The update you've all been waiting for.
Florence Shapiro, who chairs the Senate Education Committee said senators have been "cackling" about the bill and were surprised the House took time to debate it.

"We have so many big issues that haven't been resolved," Shapiro said, citing school finance and a tax bill among others.

"This isn't even on the radar."
Yep - she's my senator.

Texas bank robber with toy gun slain

A 60-year-old woman dressed in black, armed with a toy gun and driving a motor home robbed a bank in east Texas on Thursday, then led police on a low-speed chase before she was shot and killed when she allegedly pointed her fake revolver at officers.

The woman was identified by Tyler, Texas, police as Peggy Jo Tallas, an ex-convict who became known as 'Cowboy Bob' in 1992 after she pleaded guilty to robbing a bank in Mesquite, Texas, of $13,000 while dressed in a cowboy hat, sunglasses, a fake beard and mustache, and other Western attire.
If ABC doesn't make a TV movie of this, I will.

Florida boosts gun rights, igniting a debate

Ah, the Christian Science Monitor. THE news outlet for a cult. They were basically benign, as far as I'm concerned, until this article. I always thought their politics were liberal, but this tears it.
When 16-year-old Mark Drewes knocked on a neighbor's door in Boca Raton, Fla., and then ran away as a prank, he was shot dead by homeowner Jay Levin. Mr. Levin, who said afterward that he mistook the boy for a robber out to attack him, was sentenced to 52 weekends in jail for manslaughter.
Now, 18 months later [emphasis mine--jr], the state has enacted a law that opponents fear will only encourage more gun owners like Levin to adopt a "shoot first, think later" approach - and this time get away without punishment. But others see the new measure, which allows people to meet "force with force" in public places without fear of punishment, as a vital way for people to protect their homes and families.
We've been down this road before on this blog. Back in the day (18 years ago), when concealed carry was passed in Florida, anti-gunners predicted "blood in the streets." Now that you don't have to retreat from being attacked, they're predicting OK Corral scenarios.

Give it up, people. This argument is just as lame as the ones you used 18 years ago. As for the kid above, well, that sucks. No doubt about it. But it's got not one damned thing to do with this law. It's just anti-gunners dancing in the blood of innocents. In case you've not yet noticed, it's one of their favorite tactics, and it's just as distasteful as it sounds.
