It is down hill from here…Evening Open ThreadPosted: February 6, 2013
Good Evening Y’all
Ah yes, polite society…it is the cornerstone of the right-wing ideals and values.
In Georgia the gun nuts are planning a pro-gun rally at the State Capitol, and since there are school kids who frequent the Capitol Building this time of year, Atlanta Police will be packing AK-47s…just in case any of the crazies get a bug up their ass and start shooting.
I would link to the rally site but don’t want to start an overflow of trolls, just let me say that these gun totting “polite society” types are pissed off at the APD for bringing bigger guns than theirs to this gun
Oh, and this is an open-carry pro-gun rally, so these folks will be brandishing their guns, organizers are asking they not be loaded, but advise participants to bring their ammunition.
Here are a couple of links for you tonight, from Eric Loomis: God Made a Farmer? – Lawyers, Guns & Money
I was going to respond to that ridiculous “God Made a Farmer” Chrysler ad that ran during the Super Bowl using the voiceover of Paul Harvey’s speech of that title as narration. Showing a lot of white people (and one black person!) farming, the ad was a million ways of problems. Between ignoring the actual people who do farm work in this country (Latinos) and the fact that farming is a hard, low-wage job where people struggle to keep their land in the face of increased centralization and corporatization, the ad was a giant lie. Which is like most advertisements, but this was especially egregious.
And…one more, for any of you geeky fiber folks out there: LEGO Loom Looms Video
This is an open thread.
