Damn that Global Warming!

It’s snowing here. Hard. Not much is sticking yet, but I saw a car on the road that had a good 4” of snow on it. And tomorrow the weather wieners say it’s going to be 60 and sunny. In the meantime we’re also going to have strong winds, gusting to 50mph or more. Go figure.

Personally, I think this is somehow all Bush’s fault.

Islamists stone to death Somali woman for adultery.

Gee, maybe if the west gives them some money for health and safety and education and medicine and ... oh yeah.  West already has. Many times over the many years.
OK.. maybe if the west gives even more. And keeps on giving.  Right. I didn’t think so either.
It will NEVER, EVER make a bit of difference.

Islamists stone to death Somali woman for adultery

By Daily Mail Reporter
Last updated at 2:15 PM on 28th October 2008

Somali Islamists have stoned to death a woman accused of adultery in the first such public killing by the militants for about two years, witnesses said.

The 23-year-old woman was placed in a hole up to her neck for the execution late on Monday in front of hundreds of people in a square of the southern port of Kismayu, which the Islamist insurgents captured in August.

Stones were hurled at her head, and she was brought out of the hole three times to see if she had died.

When a relative and others surged forward, guards opened fire, killing a child, the witnesses said.

‘A woman in green veil and black mask was brought in a car as we waited to watch the merciless act of stoning,’ one local resident, Abdullahi Aden, told Reuters.

‘We were told she submitted herself to be punished, yet we could see her screaming as she was forcefully bound, legs and hands. A relative of hers ran towards her, but the Islamists opened fire and killed a child.’

The Islamists last carried out public executions when they ruled Mogadishu and most of south Somalia for half of 2006.

Allied Ethiopian and Somali government forces toppled them at the end of that year, but they have waged an Iraq-style guerrilla campaign since then, gradually taking territory back.

As when they ruled Mogadishu in 2006, the Islamists now controlling the Kismayu area are again providing much-needed security, but also imposing fundamentalist practices such as banning entertainment seen as anti-Islamic.

Relatives of the woman executed in Kismayu, whom they named as Asha Ibrahim Dhuhulow, were furious.

‘The stoning was totally irreligious and illogical,’ said her sister, who asked not to be named. ‘Islam does not execute a woman for adultery unless four witnesses and the man with whom she committed sex are brought forward publicly.’

Islamist leaders at the execution said the woman had breached Islamic law. They promised to punish the guard who had shot the child in the melee around the execution.

‘We apologise for killing the child. And we promise we shall bring the one who opened fire before the courts and deal with him accordingly,’ one unnamed Islamist leader told the crowd.’

Elf ‘n’ safety stormtroopers raid Teddy Bears’ picnic.  (you’ll enjoy the nonsense)

I hope you people do read this. Funny? Sure. But in a sick kind of way. Or maybe more sad then sick.
Health and Safety comrades are making a mockery of the words and strangling this country.  I came across the first story here a couple of days ago and hesitated posting it. Although I should have.  But the Teddy Bear thing is new to me.  Well anyway, I think if nothing else you will be amused to see what he’s done with, “A TEDDY BEAR’S PICNIC.”

A note to Lyndon. I know you aren’t a fan of the Mail, but surely Littlejohn is worth reading. No?


Elf ‘n’ safety stormtroopers raid Teddy Bears’ picnic

Last updated at 12:37 AM on 28th October 2008

If you go down to the woods today, forget about disguise - you’d better wear a hard hat and a hi-viz jacket.

Dingly Dell has fallen to the elf ‘n’ safety nazis. For the past 12 years, retired builder Mike Kamp has been collecting firewood from the forest near his home at Betws-y-Coed, North Wales.

It’s a right enshrined in the Magna Carta of 1215, the template for democracies around the world. Free men down the centuries have been granted the liberty to gather dead wood from common land to fuel their stoves, repair their homes and make charcoal.

Now it has imposed an outright ban, stating: ‘This is an area where we are subject to increasing constraints in terms of health and safety. We have a duty of care to people in our wood.’

Note the use of the possessive our wood. It isn’t their wood. It’s common land and it belongs to everyone.

As Mr Kamp said: ‘They are claiming there are health and safety issues. But people have walked through the woods collecting firewood for hundreds of years without too many safety problems.’

Precisely. I doubt there is one recorded incident of a firewood-related fatality in North Wales.

This, as usual, is about bureaucrats justifying their own sad existence and protecting their backs in the event of someone turning their ankle in a rabbit hole, ringing Blame Direct, and suing for com-pensayshun.

It’s the same warped thinking which led to plans for an open-air ice rink in Bath this Christmas being abandoned because council officials feared it could be a magnet for paedophiles.

How sick do you have to be to reach that conclusion?

And a school in Colchester has banned children from bringing in broomsticks for Halloween in case they get hurt. In fairness, they were only following official advice on the NHS website:

‘Be careful with witches’ brooms made from sticks. If the sticks get dislodged, they are a choking hazard. These brooms should be labelled For Adult Use Only.’

You couldn’t make it up. Where is it all going to end? We take you over now to a briefing at the multi-million pound headquarters of the government’s Firewood Prevention, Elf ‘n’ Safety and Child Protection Joint Task Force.

‘Listen up, team. We’ve had a tip-off that a number of teddy bears are going down to the woods today and we want to maintain the element of surprise. So you’d better go in disguise.’

‘Why’s that, guv?’ ‘For every bear that ever there was will gather there for certain because today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic.

‘Every teddy bear who’s been good is sure of a treat today. There’s lots of marvellous things to eat and wonderful games to play.

‘But they don’t have a catering licence or a safety certificate. If anything goes wrong we could have carnage on our hands. Food poisoning, sprained ankles, it doesn’t bear thinking about, if you’ll pardon the pun.’

‘Oh, very good, sir.’ ‘I want the tactical support unit beneath the trees where nobody sees. They’ll hide and seek as long as they please, ‘cause that’s the way the teddy bears have their picnic.

‘And I don’t want any heroics, either. If you go down to the woods today, you better not go alone. It’s lovely down in the woods today, but safer to stay at home.’

‘What do you want us to do, guv?’ ‘Watch them, catch them unawares. See them gaily gad about, they love to play and shout, they never have any care.

‘At six o’clock their mummies and daddies will take them home to bed, because they’re tired little teddy bears. That’s when we move in.’

‘Why wait until six o’clock, guv?’ ‘We suspect a major paedophile ring is operating in the area. After all, we’ve only got their word for it that they are mummies and daddies. Remember little Maddie?

‘I want names and addresses and don’t forget to read them their rights. I’m not having any of them getting off on a technicality.

‘Social services are providing armed back-up, the helicopter is on standby and I’m bringing in the firewood squad. We believe that some of the contraband wood is being used to make offensive weapons - ie: witches’ brooms.

‘So let’s do it to them, before they do it to themselves. And, hey, hey, hey. Let’s be careful out there.’

Thanks a lot, assholes

My first reaction was that this story was BS. Could white people ACTUALLY BE THIS STUPID? But then I realized these aren’t white people. These are skinheads. “Crackers” doesn’t come close. This people are the scum around the fringes, and they need scraping away. And yes, they are even stupider than this. It’s past time to purify our own race. Stones and fire will suffice.

So here’s my second reaction.

God Damn. Just what we fookin needed. Fother Mucking Jerks! You brain dead benighted pig dicks. You utter morons. You rancid little fish twats. Now you’ve really fucked it up, because this is all we’re going to hear for the next week. Thanks for throwing the election away you retarded ass biscuits. Thanks for laying a huge White Guilt trip on the whole fucking nation. Just die now please. Rip your own eyes out and then choke on them. Slowly. Then fall feet first into a big bucket of acid, bounce out of that and into a Whisper Chipper three seconds before the power fails.  You can’t suffer enough.

White supremacist ‘plot’ to assassinate Barack Obama foiled

A neo-Nazi plot to assassinate Barack Obama has been uncovered days before the American presidential election.

US government agents say they have thwarted a plan by two conspirators to kill the White House front-runner and shoot or decapitate 102 black people.

Daniel Cowart, 20, and Paul Schlesselman, 18, were arrested in Tennessee on Wednesday and charged with possession of firearms, threats against a presidential candidate running and conspiring to rob a gun store, the Department of Justice said.

The plot is understood to centre on Tennessee where Martin Luther King was assassinated exactly 40 years ago.

Details of the conspiracy were contained in court records unsealed on Monday by members of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives – America’s specialist law enforcement agency.

ATF agents said they disrupted plans by white supremacists to rob a firearms store and attack a predominantly black school.

According to the ATF, the men planned to go on a killing spree across the United States with Mr Obama, the Democratic nominee who is poised to become the country’s first black president, as their final target.

Brian Weaks, an ATF agent, told a Memphis court on Monday that the pair had men discussed a “killing spree to include targeting a predominantly African-American school”. The ATF said that the two men did not identify the school by name.

He continued: “They further stated that their final act of violence would be to attempt to kill/assassinate presidential candidate Barack Obama,” he added, as the two men appeared before the federal court.

Cowart, from Bells, Tennessee, and Schlesselman, from Arkansas, met on the Internet a month ago and have “very strong beliefs and views regarding ‘White Power’ and ‘Skinhead’ views,” Mr Weaks told the court.

He said that Cowart had bought one rifle and stockpiled two handguns, both stolen from his grandfather. They planned to steal another high-powered rifle from a gun store in Jackson, Tennessee, as well as a series of robberies to finance their bloody actions.

“Schlesselman stated that they planned to drive their vehicles as fast as they could toward Obama shooting at him from the windows.”

“Both individuals stated they would dress in all white tuxedos and wear top hats during the assassination attempt. Both individuals further stated they knew they would and were willing to die during this attempt.”

Jim Cavanaugh, special agent in charge of the Nashville field office of the ATF said the two skinheads planned to shoot 88 black people and decapitate another 14. The numbers 88 and 14 are held to be symbolic by white supremacists and relate to nationalist leader David Lane as well as Adolf Hitler.

Details of the alleged plot emerged just before Mr Obama arrived in Pittsburgh for a campaign rally after an earlier visit to Canton, Ohio.

Naked ‘burglar’ rescued from store chimney



Firefighters today rescued a suspected burglar who became stuck in a chimney.

Police and the fire service were called to the scene at the Tesco Express store in Pemberton, Wigan, at around 5.30am.

The man, who was naked, was eventually freed and taken to hospital as a precaution. He was later discharged.

It is believed his clothes came off as he struggled to get out of the chimney.

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “Officers went to the scene where a man was trapped in the chimney of the store.

“The fire service attended and rescued the man from the chimney-breast.”

A 22-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of burglary at the Ormskirk Road store and is currently in police custody.

No word yet on the rumor that the police used their best crack squad on this cheeky caper.

Picture This

I just couldn’t resist.

You’ve seen all those Caption This pictures around the net. Here’s one that got the caption - the story - but begs for you to imagine a picture. And it’s not a pretty one.

Frenchman delays train after getting arm stuck in toilet

the man had to be cut free after taking a dumper dive to rescue his cell phone. Eww!

A Frenchman caused a two-hour train delay when his arm was sucked into a toilet as he tried to retrieve his dropped mobile phone.

The 26-year-old passenger’s arm became trapped up to the shoulder by the powerful suction flushing system on board the packed high-speed TGV train from Paris to La Rochelle.

Yeah right. Suction my arse. He was doing the big reach, you know it.

Firefighters took more than an hour to free the man, before lifting him from the train on a stretcher with the entire toilet still stuck to his arm.

Now there’s the picture you just can’t wait to caption!

A fire spokesman said: “He was cut free from the toilet on the platform and apart from suffering bruising and smelling a bit, he suffered no other injuries.”

Oooh, help me, help me, I can’t resist .... aaaaah I’m losing it .... heeeeelllp! ... I surrender. HOW COULD THEY TELL?

A spokesman for French rail operator SNCF added: “The train was two hours late at its destination on Sunday afternoon due to an unlikely accident, and we apologise to passengers for the unavoidable delay.”

Unlikely is right. I wonder if his mistress was on hold the whole time?

thing. He calls it comedy.  And some think he’s funny.  Stupid,stupid,stupid!

Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand prank sparks calls for BBC inquiry
The future of Jonathan Ross’s £18 million BBC contract has been called into question after the prank he and Russell Brand played on the actor Andrew Sachs.

By Anita Singh, Showbusiness Editor
Last Updated: 6:55PM GMT 27 Oct 2008

Ross and fellow presenter Russell Brand left a string of sexually offensive answerphone messages for the 78-year-old Fawlty Towers star, broadcast to two million listeners on Brand’s Radio 2 Saturday night show.

They claimed that Brand had slept with Mr Sachs’ 23-year-old granddaughter, Georgina Baillie, an aspiring model, and joked that the actor might kill himself upon hearing the news.

Mr Sachs was left “upset” by the calls and the BBC received 546 complaints from appalled listeners after the October 18 show.

Speaking about the row for the first time, Mr Sachs said: “People ask me if I’m angry - well, yes, but not half as angry as Georgina. That’s where the apology should be directed. People are writing about it and talking about it, quite rightly. I am sorry that I am involved in it… I love the BBC, I have worked for them for over 50 years and I continue to work for them. Sometimes things can go wrong.”

Mr Sachs said he had received a “very nice” letter of apology from Jonathan Ross. “I have just read it. It basically says ‘sorry’.” However, asked if he had forgiven the chat show host, Mr Sachs replied: “It is God who forgives.”

Georgina’s mother, Kate, said of the presenters: “Maybe those two should just learn to grow up. My father is the world’s most decent man and to put him up in front of an audience for humiliation is ridiculous.”

The BBC initially defended the prank, which was pre-recorded and cleared for broadcast by producers. However, the corporation later backtracked and issued a statement. It read: “We have received a letter of complaint from Mr Sachs’ agent and would like to sincerely apologise to Mr Sachs for the offence caused.

“We recognise that some of the content broadcast was unacceptable and offensive. We are reviewing how this came about and are responding to Mr Sachs personally. We also apologise to listeners for any offence caused.”

Ross is no stranger to controversy, not least for the £18 million, three-year contract said to make him the highest paid presenter at the BBC.

John Whittingdale, chairman of the Department of Culture, Media and Sport select committee, said: “The trouble is, this is not the first occasion on which Jonathan Ross has crossed the line and has been pulled up by the BBC and told not to carry this kind of material, and it appears that has had little effect.”

The BBC pays “a very substantial amount of public money for Jonathan Ross and a pretty large amount for Russell Brand too. I think they are both talented broadcasters but they have got to remember that when they are broadcasting on the BBC in particular, they are not able to use material they might use in a live show.

“The message needs to be rammed home. It does raise questions about their future with the corporation.”

He added. “I think anybody who listens to Jonathan Ross and Russell Brand has a rough idea of what to expect but, in my view, this did go too far. To make that kind of comment to a much-loved, elderly character actor like Andrew Sachs was pretty offensive in the first place. To then broadcast it to two million people seems to me unacceptable.”

Mr Whittingdale said “some very serious questions need to be asked right at the top of the BBC” as to why the offending clip was broadcast. He called for Ofcom to investigate the matter and said the BBC’s reluctance to apologise immediately was “pretty extraordinary”.

Ross caused offence on his BBC1 chat show in 2006, when he asked Tory leader David Cameron if he had enjoyed sexual fantasies about Lady Thatcher. Brand is similarly controversial, recently outraging US viewers during the MTV Video Music Awards by calling George W Bush “that retard cowboy fella” and making a string of off-colour sexual jokes.

Both men were uncharacteristically sheepish yesterday. Asked if he had anything to say to Mr Sachs, Brand replied: “Obviously I would talk to him directly. I am not sure you are the right conduit.”

Ross has written a personal letter of apology to Mr Sachs. His agent, Meg Poole, said she had received a “nicely worded and apologetic email”. She welcomed the BBC’s apology but added: “I think Andrew feels that if anyone is due an apology, it is Georgina.”

Brand and Ross left the messages when Mr Sachs, who played Manuel in Fawlty Towers, failed to answer the telephone for what was said to be a pre-arranged interview. Brand told listeners: “The elephant in the room is, what Andrew doesn’t know is, I’ve slept with his granddaughter.” During the first of several calls, Ross blurted out: “He ****ed your granddaughter!” They phoned back and left another message, this time with Brand singing: “I said some things I didn’t of oughta, like I had sex with your granddaughter.”

Gas Prices Fall in the heartland; under $2 in Tennessee

From GasBuddy.com:

image

This map is probably already out of date. GasBuddy relies on volunteers to submit gas prices to them. I know that the station down the street has regular for $2.39.9; zooming in on their map shows the average price around here to be at least .25 higher.

But dayum, $1.97 in Tennessee! How cool is that?

Huh, funny, it looks like the red states are the greenest right now. Coinkydink?

Whittle While You Work

Bill Whittle weighs in on today’s viral video.

Once again, the words straight from Obama’s own mouth ought to be a campaign killer. Once again, not one person with half an active brain cell and a cat’s lick of common sense and knowledge of what America is all about should be able to vote for this turkey. Not one.

But Bill says it better, as he always does:

The United States of America — five percent of the world’s population — leads the world economically, militarily, scientifically, and culturally — and by a spectacular margin. Any one of these achievements, taken alone, would be cause for enormous pride. To dominate as we do in all four arenas has no historical precedent. That we have achieved so much in so many areas is due — due entirely — to the structure of our society as outlined in the Constitution of the United States.

The entire purpose of the Constitution was to limit government. That limitation of powers is what has unlocked in America the vast human potential available in any population.

Barack Obama sees that limiting of government not as a lynchpin but rather as a fatal flaw: “…One of the, I think, the tragedies of the Civil Rights movement was because the Civil Rights movement became so court-focused, uh, I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change. And in some ways we still suffer from that.”

There is no room for wiggle or misunderstanding here. This is not edited copy. There is nothing out of context; for the entire thing is context — the context of what Barack Obama believes. You and I do not have to guess at what he believes or try to interpret what he believes. He says what he believes.

We have, in our storied history, elected Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives and moderates. We have fought, and will continue to fight, pitched battles about how best to govern this nation. But we have never, ever in our 232-year history, elected a president who so completely and openly opposed the idea of limited government, the absolute cornerstone of makes the United States of America unique and exceptional.

If this does not frighten you — regardless of your political affiliation — then you deserve what this man will deliver with both houses of Congress, a filibuster-proof Senate, and, to quote Senator Obama again, “a righteous wind at our backs.”

That a man so clear in his understanding of the Constitution, and so opposed to the basic tenets it provides against tyranny and the abuse of power, can run for president of the United States is shameful enough.

We’re just getting started.

McCain on Fire!

Horry Clap, McCain’s on fire. Catch his speech from Ohio today; I’m sure Fox will have it as well as McCain.org and JohnMcCain.com, etc. He’s all over today’s viral video of Obama’s 2001 radio interview video. The old man is up on the podium, actually raising his voice! He’s energized! He’s shouting! He’s against big government! He’s against out of control spending! He’s against Socialism (but he doesn’t call a spade a spade and he doesn’t identify the obvious). He’s not lying down and giving up. It’s like a rally! It’s almost sounds like he’s a Republican!

The before the speech transcript from the NY Times is pretty close to what he actually said.

Stand Up! Stand up and fight for America!

It’s been a long campaign and we’ve heard a lot of words, and great campaign trail eloquence. The amazing thing is that we’ve learned more about Senator Obama’s real goals for our country over the last two weeks than we learned over the past two years. It is amazing that even at this late hour, we are still learning more about Senator Obama and his agenda. He told Joe the plumber right here in Ohio he wants to quote “spread the wealth around.” It’s always more interesting to hear what people have to say in these unscripted moments, and today we heard another moment like this from Senator Obama.

In a radio interview revealed today, he said that one of the quote—“tragedies” of the civil rights movement is that it didn’t bring about a redistribution of wealth in our society. He said, and I quote, “One of the tragedies of the Civil Rights movement was because the Civil Rights movement became so court-focused I think that there was a tendency to lose track of the political and community organizing and activities on the ground that are able to put together the actual coalitions of power through which you bring about redistributive change.”

That is what change means for Barack the Redistributor: It means taking your money and giving it to someone else. He believes in redistributing wealth, not in policies that grow our economy and create jobs. He is more interested in controlling wealth than in creating it, in redistributing money instead of spreading opportunity. I am going to create wealth for all Americans, by creating opportunity for all Americans.

...

Let me give you the state of the race today. There’s eight days to go. We’re a few points down. The pundits have written us off, just like they’ve done before. My opponent is working out the details with Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid of their plans to raise your taxes, increase spending, and concede defeat in Iraq. He’s measuring the drapes, and he’s planned his first address to the nation for before the election. I guess I’m old fashioned about these things I prefer to let the voters weigh in before presuming the outcome.

What America needs now is someone who will finish the race before the starting the victory lap ... someone who will fight to the end, and not for himself but for his country.

I have fought for you most of my life, and in places where defeat meant more than returning to the Senate. There are other ways to love this country, but I’ve never been the kind to back down when the stakes are high.

I know you’re worried. America is a great country, but we are at a moment of national crisis that will determine our future.

Will we continue to lead the world’s economies or will we be overtaken? Will the world become safer or more dangerous? Will our military remain the strongest in the world? Will our children and grandchildren’s future be brighter than ours?

My answer to you is yes. Yes, we will lead. Yes, we will prosper. Yes, we will be safer. Yes, we will pass on to our children a stronger, better country. But we must be prepared to act swiftly, boldly, with courage and wisdom.

I’m an American. And I choose to fight. Don’t give up hope. Be strong. Have courage. And fight.

Fight for a new direction for our country. Fight for what’s right for America.

Fight to clean up the mess of corruption, infighting and selfishness in Washington.

Fight to get our economy out of the ditch and back in the lead.

Fight for the ideals and character of a free people.

Fight for our children’s future.

Fight for justice and opportunity for all.

Stand up to defend our country from its enemies.

Stand up, stand up, stand up and fight. America is worth fighting for. Nothing is inevitable here. We never give up. We never quit. We never hide from history. We make history.

Now, let’s go win this election and get this country moving again.

Palin’s Problem

What is Sarah Palin’s problem with McCain/Palin Campaign aides? It’s simple, they are a bunch of sexist pigs who think she’s a stubborn bitch. What you have here is a gang of egotistical control fools who don’t want to admit Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin has brains and a mind of her own. They don’t want Kathryn Janeway, they want June Cleaver.

Now Palin is fighting back. Sarah has burned her bra, taken back her maiden name, and is opening her own doors. The way those aides were acting you’d think she was busy castrating them with a dull plastic fork. Middle aged men with castration anxiety. As if they had any use for it.

The Sarahcuda is simply doing what John McCain needs to do, put a bunch of power hungry weasels in their place. McCain gives his aides too much credit because they supposedly know more than him. In contrast they don’t impress Sarah Palin. Since the aides hate people who stand up for themselves, they bitch, moan, and kvetch about what she’s doing, having none of the maturity needed to recognize she has to stomp on them, and stomp on them hard, for her to have any real role in a McCain administration.

And, it’s something John McCain needs to do if he is to have any real role in the McCain administration. John McCain, like Barack Obama, puts to much credence in his advisers. John McCain needs to start putting his foot down and reigning in people before they screw the pooch and start looking for ways to deny paternity of the puppies.

Good on ya, Sarah! Tell ‘em the truth, and give ‘em Hell!

Par for the Course

Typical college students ... ripping people off.

The Young Conservatives of Texas branch at the Houston-area Lone Star College-Tomball has been censored and threatened with campus-wide de-recognition for passing out a humorous pamphlet with gun jokes at a campus fair.

The dispute is being addressed by the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, or FIRE, which has written college officials reminding them of the college’s constitutional obligation to respect the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and to acknowledge the flyer’s contents are protected speech.

“Distributing a joke-filled top-ten list at a student activities fair is a creative way for a student group to educate its peers about itself,” said Greg Lukianoff, the president of FIRE.

The case developed at the school’s recent “club rush” when the Young Conservatives started handing out their list of “Top Ten Gun Safety Tips.”

The tongue-in-cheek recommendations included:

* Always keep your gun pointed in a safe direction, such as at a hippy or a communist.

* No matter how responsible he seems, never give your gun to a monkey.

* Don’t load your gun unless you are ready to shoot something or are just feeling generally angry.

* If your gun misfires, never look down the barrel to inspect it.

* Never us[e] your gun to pistol whip someone. That could mar the finish.

* No matter how excited you are about buying your first gun, do not run around yelling “I have a gun! I have a gun!”

The flyer then invited students to an informational meeting the following week.

Robert Comer, the chairman for the student group, said Shannon Marino, the school’s program manager for student activities, told him the flyer was inappropriate and confiscated his copies. When Comer appealed to E. Edward Albracht, the dean of student development, he ruled the flyer was inappropriate and cited the shootings at Virginia Tech.

Then, a few days later, Marino warned Comer the school’s legal department would review the flyers and the school might order the campus YCT branch disbanded or placed on probation.

“Lone Star should be ashamed of invoking the tragedy of Virginia Tech in an attempt to justify the censorship of any mention of firearms at Lone Star. Doing so is not only an affront to constitutional rights – it trivializes the experiences of the true victims of gun violence,” Lukianoff said.

Yeah yeah yeah, “invoking the tragedy of Virginia Tech”. What bullshit. I’m 99.78% positive that I’ve had my IMAO.us Top Ten Gun Safety Tips T-shirt since before the Virginia Tech shootings. Nor were gun jokes invented only after that event!  And however well intentioned, those Lone Star college Conservatives STOLE THE WHOLE THING WORD FOR WORD from Frank J. and didn’t give him any credit:

Oh. Wait a second. Um, yeah, it’s ALSO an outrage that the college is having a hissy fit because somebody actually mentioned guns. That’s nuts. But I think those Lone Star folks owe Frank J. about $1 per leaflet.

Via Vilmar, but I cottoned onto the plagiarism thingy.

Wow. I am soooooo jealous. I’ve never been confiscated anywhere. Heck, this blog isn’t even banned in China. And I have no fatwas against me at all. I’ve got to try harder!!!

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
It's been a long strange trip without you Skipper, but thanks for pointing us in the right direction and giving us a swift kick in the behind to get us going. Keep lookin' down on us, will ya? Thanks.
