"The Founders never could have conceived of such weapons"

Please, read this thoughtful missive by Billy Beck.

He makes it clear that the colonial revolutionaries were on the same footing, in technology, as the Redcoats, as far as personal weapons were concerned with era doctrine.

Let me, possibly, advance on this concept.

Not only did we, the Americans, have access to the most ubiquitous musket of the battlefield, the British Brown Bess, we had a decided advantage on that same front. 

Pay attention, I'll make this point in short order.

The irregulars of the time, that would be the colonials, the Americans, had access to, and used, the Pennsylvania rifle. This was a decidedly advanced technology, that was NOT in use by the standard armies of the day,  and definitely not the British, who were little more than a Roman Phalanx with their muskets, one line kneeling to shoot, the second, standing for cover and reloading, engaging at short distances at three to four rounds per minute. That was standard continental warfare, and the musket was the arm for the European armies to fight each other.

We had better, more up to date technology than our government, and USED IT TO DEFEAT THEM.

So, the next time some fool Libturd opens his stupid mouth, spouting deceptions and lies about how the Founders couldn't POSSIBLY have foreseen the advance of technology of firearms, that they couldn't have foreseen the fully automatic or self-loading rifle, or, hell, even the sealed metallic cartridge, please shove this point down their throat, good and hard.

Maybe they'll choke on it.

Get control of the meds,

...and do it NOW!

Go see at Zendo Deb's.

Chilling, to say the least.

Note how this isn't being pushed as a possibility since the tragedy last week, despite the kid being treated for Asperger's.

A monumental tower of shit is coming our way

Time to batten down the hatches.

I hope the faithful have their supplies laid up.

Interesting times ahead.

Can't stop the fever

Please, compare these two stories.

Now ask any American Liberal how best to deal with the situation.

They'll commence to telling you a lie, with a straight face, and they'll not know it to be so.

Watch for the gun control laws that will be coming to a neighborhood near you.

The hits just keep on rolling

Good thing this stuff writes itself;
"...Locked in seemingly stalled negotiations with Republicans opposed to the tax hike, the president has been waging an aggressive PR war to keep the public on his side in the dispute..."
So, it's not about doing the right thing, which is to balance the budget (passing one would be a good start) by cutting spending first, it's about image.

Not substance, but "fairness," whatever that is.

Behold the filth that passes for informed decisions

Barry wants to nominate the editor of Vogue magazine as ambassador to Great Britain or France.

This should make your blood boil.
