“You can’t do that, that’s our act!”

Wayne LaPierre

The NRA has so far been successfully battling the expansion of background checks on all weapons sales in spite of the fact that 85 percent of the American public support them.

Of course this may have coincided with the disappearance of Wayne LaPierre who made a comeback yesterday.

And what was LaPierre agitated about this time?

The head of the National Rifle Association (NRA) slammed New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) on Sunday, accusing him of trying to “buy America” by spending $12 million on a massive advertising campaign advocating for stricter gun laws.

“He’s going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people,” said NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre in an interview on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Okay, first of all, the fact that ANY gun control interest is spending money against the NRA is itself news.

Second, “He’s going to find out this is a country of the people, by the people, and for the people“?

Uh, about that first sentence of this post?

Fatster's Roundup



In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
