Another day, another failure

And with the assistance of the following “Democrats” a bill to make even the most modest non-controlling kind of improvements to gun control fall short:

Mark Pryor of Arkansas; Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota; Mark Begich of Alaska; and Max Baucus of Montana.

Thanks for nothin’.

It also means we lose again to a Party that is made up of geniuses like this:

Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas) warned Wednesday that “radical Islamists” are being “trained to act like Hispanic[s]” and cross the U.S.-Mexico border.

So, you hate both the them!

And lying assholes like this:

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), who has been raising fears that expanding background checks would bring about a national gun registry, conceded Wednesday that the legislation doesn’t actually do that.

Heckuva job on reform Harry…who could have anticipated?  Other than everyone but you?

Annnnnnnnnnnd…of course:

A man protesting new gun control measures being considered by the Senate was arrested Tuesday on the Capitol grounds when police discovered he was carrying a loaded handgun, CNN has learned.


In other terrible, yet somehow related news of bad government (i.e. no government) leading to awful results…as awful as the explosion at a Texas fertilizer plant yesterday is, how on earth do the governing zoning laws, or lack thereof, allow not one but two schools, a hospital and a nursing home be so close to it?

The results of this non-planning make the horrific event even worse.

Over Easy



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 .
