Paul Bedard: "They won the campaign handily and even had $14.2 million to spare, but the Obama-Biden campaign is still raising money, this time off the president's comments about the Sandy Hook Elementary School shootings in Connecticut. In email from chief campaign advisor David Axelrod that urges supporters to watch President Obama's moving address to the community of Newtown, Conn., there are two links that open a page with a video player featuring the president's speech and two donate buttons asking for $15-$1,000 for his campaign."

This was written by +Roger David Herold on a friend of mines status, over on FaceBook, calling for banning of guns. I thought it belongs out here not just as a comment.

"A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED."

"I want someone who is against the ownership of "assault weapons" to define an "assault weapon".

"An over reaching government can be controlled one way only and that's by a free press." Really? Do we even have a "free press" in this country anymore? And once the citizens are disarmed, what's to stop an "over reaching government" from taking over the presses or squelching dissent?

I'm getting a little tired of people who think they hold the moral high ground about this tragedy because they advocate against private gun ownership. The millions of us who are gun owners are also human beings and we are as deeply affected by this tragedy as anyone else. I am angry as hell too that some sick fuck would do this. But infringing on gun rights is not the way to channel that anger.

The feigned outrage from the narcissist in the White House and his cadre of power-hungry zealots is not at all unexpected; this is right out of the Alinsky playbook:
RULE 12: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”
The target now is law-abiding gun owners.

And whether you like it or not, this IS about freedom and liberty. People should just turn in their guns? I will have you know that I and all other legal gun owners had to complete the necessary paperwork, have our records checked by state and federal law enforcement, and wait ten days before we could take possession of a handgun or other "restricted" firearm. We have committed no crime. As a matter of fact, we jumped through all of the hoops necessary because we know that owning a firearm is a serious and deadly responsibility. So the answer being presented to us MILLIONS of gun owners is we have to accept our Constitutionally enshrined rights being infringed because of less than a dozen sickos? And, this is even more sick - using the deaths of children to exploit it? This makes us safer how?

I guess you would put me in the category of a "yahoo", and I do subscribe to the "fanatic take my gun take my liberty shit". I believe so much in my liberty to own firearms that I am willing to die to defend it. Yes, I will willingly give my life to defend my right to bear arms as willingly as I would to defend my family. If that makes me a "yahoo" then so be it.

The problem of mass shootings is a multi-faceted one but "gun control" is an emotional and knee-jerk response to problems (familial breakdown, a violent movies and games, mental illness, et al) that need careful and thoughtful deliberation. Leave the law-abiding gun owners alone."

Mr. President, please stop referring to citizens as "ordinary folks". Makes it sound like government is above us.

Interesting take on the Google Maps app release
 
Google Maps isn't just important because it's the best mapping app on iOS (and possibly ever, period). It's also going to piss off a lot of 'normal people' who are going to grow frustrated that iOS always tries to steer them toward the inferior Apple Maps whenever they click on a link in Email or on the web.

Before now the inability to change default apps has mostly impacted 'tech people', but Google Maps is so clearly superior and universally handy that it will reach a much broader market. I won't be surprised if we see news reports covering the issue and substantial backlash against Apple —  maybe even some murmuring from folks in congress. 

Of course, with apps like Chrome and Gmail, Google would love if Apple changed its policy and let users change their default apps (I'm actually wondering whether this is why Google Maps is so good — because Google saw this as a unique opportunity to force this issue into the public spotlight). Either way, I'm glad it is. Giving users control over the devices they own is a good thing.

Some Quotes I like
‎"Once you get that checkered flag fever you can't shake it, only feed it."

"Oh, you hate your job? Why didn't you say so? There's a support group for that. It's called EVERYBODY, and they meet at the bar." Drew Carey 

"When the government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny" Sam Adams

I'm not locked up in here with you. You're locked up in here with ME

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be - Douglas Adams

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours." -Stephen F. Roberts (this is to remind Christians what we are up against) 

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well armed lamb contesting the vote. - Ben Franklin

"Its not the people that should be afraid of the government, its the government that should be afraid of the people."

"Artists use lies to tell the truth. Politicians use them to cover it up." 

"Those who are responsible will be held accountable."

It's dangerous to be right when the government is wrong. Or at least it would be, if the government was ever wrong. 

"Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened."  - Sir Winston Churchill

It Only Takes A Single Voice To Start A Revolution - Thorin.
