Life is Hard. Wear a Helmet.

Life is Hard. Wear a Helmet

Virginia State Constitution: Article 1; Section 13
That a well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the proper, natural, and safe defense of a free state, therefore, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed; that standing armies, in time of peace, should be avoided as dangerous to liberty; and that in all cases the military should be under strict subordination to, and governed by, the civil power.

Alabama State Constitution: Article 1: Section 26
That every Citizen has a right to bear arms in defense of himself and the State.

Just when I needed a Good Laugh



Hillary Clinton's advertisement for her new campaign stickers.

I freakin' lost it, dude. Coffee all over the screen, the keyboard...

Congratulations! I Guess...

What's with the big fine?

Bakers face $135k fine for refusing to make cake for gay wedding

I don't get it. What happened to the right to do business with whoever you do or don't want to do business with?
The article at the link lays it down like it's all about the fact that the people who ran the bakery are Christians. I'm throwing the bullshit flag on that one. Sure, that may be the very reason why they refused to bake the cake, but what if they refused based on the fact they thought the couple was butt fucking ugly?
Would they still have to pay a fine?

I carry a gun around a lot, and when the weather is warm it's hanging right there on my belt for all the world to see.
Federal laws say it's OK for me to do that. Alabama state laws say it's OK for me to do that. As a matter of fact, both sources enumerate carrying a gun as one of my God-given rights.
So what do I do about all these businesses with "No Guns Allowed" signs? Do I wait for one of them to ask me to leave and then charge them with violating my civil rights?
Now that I've written that, it occurs to me that there's probably someone doing just that...

People need to know when to get over themselves.

Sunday morning sleep-in #133

Plugging Brigid's new book.



Go to her blog and use the link there to order it.

You get a good book and she throws some cash to the people who help rescue dogs and find them homes, so you win twice.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Speaking of Amazon...(and the Labradors that keep them in business)

The little ankle-biter got hold of the power cord for my laptop.
I bet Mrs B brought him out after I went to bed last night and let him run around while she dozed on the couch.

Anyway, blogging might get real light over the next few days. The cord still works, as long as you position it just so...
I don't know how long that will last.

Saturday Morning Coffee #154

Inflammatory Headline of the Week

Union cancels Boeing vote, claiming gun-toting workers told it to take off


Once you actually read the article, you find out a few more facts, of course...

"...claiming workers are so opposed to signing up that they chased labor leaders off their porches at gunpoint." [emphasis mine]

Well, um...yeah.


And here's the most delightful little taste of schadenfreude you ever read...
 “An atmosphere of threats, harassment and unprecedented political interference has intimidated workers to the point we don’t believe a free and fair election is possible.”
union organizer Mike Evans

Anyone who has worked in and among a unionized workforce can tell you that union "organizers" are some of the most threatening harassers and intimidaters you've ever met.

Sounds to me like they're getting a taste of how intelligent and informed people respond to that sort of behavior.

Y'all stay safe.

My Late Hump Day Rule 5 - Tanya Tucker

aka "The Texas Tornado"

I once heard someone say, "When Tanya Tucker sings a song, you know it's been sung."

My Bad

Sorry about the lack of Hump Day Rule 5 this morning.

I found out why the really cheap hotel is really cheap...

I'll get a late one out tomorrow. Right now I'm licking my wounds and nursing a beer. (In a different hotel)

My Spirit Animal

Pappy found a new place to nap.

Hope he doesn't try that when he's full grown.





"Will you knock it off with the camera flash already?"

Saturday Morning Coffee #153

Nothing goes with your morning coffee like cleaning up dogshit on the living room carpet.

Little anklebiter hasn't gotten the hang of that whole housebreaking thing yet.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tejas is finally coming into the 21st Century in regards to carrying firearms.

Open Carry in Texas

With such a reputation as a "gun state" you'd think they would have taken care of this a long time ago.
How long before the boobs carrying around their M-4geries at port arms fuck everything up?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Freakin' awesome.

These guys do it all. You Shook Me All Night Long, Bohemian Rhapsody and a bunch of others.
