Omaha shootings renew debate on mall security

Such incidents are 'lessons' for terrorists and deranged people, according to Charles Bahn, a New York forensic psychologist. 'They show that the mall is a place where you can make an impression, and where you can find multiple victims.'
This just in: Mall Ninjas are not able to stop armed crazy people. Why? Because they're unarmed, and certain malls don't allow customers to be armed.
That makes PERFECT sense, doesn't it, boys and girls?

Grapevine Mills Mall in Grapevine, TX is posted to specifically disallow the LEGAL carrying of firearms in that mall. That means there are no legally armed citizens in that mall.

What does that tell the bad guys? "Come on in and help yourselves - nobody but sheep here, so help yourselves to whatever you'd like."

Stupid is as stupid does, ma'am.

So, where'd I put that...?

Just think of the possibilities of that memo you can't find chastising an employee for not quite doing their job...

A long-missing Michelangelo sketch for the dome of St. Peter's Basilica, possibly his last design before his death, has been discovered in the basilica's offices, the Vatican newspaper said Thursday.
Yeah, you read that right - found in the office.

Michelangelo apparently drew the sketch for the stonecutters because he was dissatisfied with how with some blocks of travertine were cut, the newspaper said.
Just stop and think about that for awhile the next time you can't find that doo-dad that rolled under your desk.

You can't make this stuff up!

Think your kids aren't learning the 3 R's?? You know, that old fashioned stuff called reading, 'riting, and 'rithmatic??

That's right folks, they're too busy taking the Chitling Test!

In the Chitling test, you'll see questions like this one:

Q: If a pimp is uptight with a woman who gets state aid, what does he mean when he talks about Mother’s Day?

A: The first and 15th of every month.

That's right folks, your tax dollars at work!

Ah, the Clintons

This is what we're going to get for the next year. The Hildabeast telling us that she's just as capable of any man, but when the going gets tough, der Schlickmiester will come out front and center and defend her.

During a campaign stop on behalf of his wife, New York Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, the former president said he can't understand why so much of the media coverage of the campaign ignores her experience....
I'm intriuged here. Just what expereince is that? She rode the coat-tails of Slick Willy in Arkansas, and kept right on riding them when he became the President. The biggest project she took on as first lady was the health care fiasco, which failed miserably. She claims to have foriegn policy experience but what exactly has she done? Sat in on meetings? Chatted with foreign leaders at State dinners?

I mean really. Let's be objective about this. Let's say you're a mechanic. Your wife comes to Christmas parties and after work get-togethers with your buddies. Does that make her qualified to work on your car? Because that's what the Clintons are saying. Since she was the President's wife, that makes her qualified to be the President. What ever happened to the NOW gang saying that women can rise on their own merits? Because the Hildabeast surely has not done that.

Regardless, get used to seeing Slick Willy on the campaign trail. Not only is her royal thighness lacking in any kind of experience, she's also lacking in any kind of personality. Say what you will about Bill's politics, the guy is one slick politician and knows how to interact with people. The Hildabeast, however, comes off as well as any two ex-wives at one time with little to none of the political acumen her husband has to offer.

Chavez loses constitutional vote

Finally, some good news out of Venezuela.
Humbled by his first electoral defeat ever, President Hugo Chavez said Monday he may have been too ambitious in asking voters to let him stand indefinitely for re-election and endorse a huge leap to a socialist state.

"I understand and accept that the proposal I made was quite profound and intense," he said after voters narrowly rejected the sweeping constitutional reforms by 51 percent to 49 percent.
Of course, he has until 2012 to use his Sith powers to force the people to capitulate to his will. Time will tell.

Some Dillon Fun

Anyone who reloads with a Dillon and subsribes to the Blue Press is familiar with the new Suburban "upgrade" available from Dillon. They've managed to shoe-horn a mini-gun in a retractable tub - reportedly used for uber-secret protection details in the Middle East.

It's ultra sexy.

Heard about the clip on Mythbusters when they tested the myth of shooting fish in a barrel... and through the wonders of the internets, found the clip to share with you folks.
