I’m told by a reputable authority that there is good paranoia. He’s very reputable, he says so himself, but we’ll get to that in a bit.
Why don’t we peruse one of the more disturbing ones?
Nancy Pelosi and her liberal lackeys are meeting behind closed doors with intent to molest your kitten. And you know who else tried to do that? Hitler.
The Nazis running the Democrat party are trampling on our values so they can revive eugenics and create a Master Race of Prius-driving hippie super soldiers.
The pot-smoking special interest groups that control the federal bureaucracy are perverting our culture so they can spread their global warming hoax and help Al Gore carry out his Final Solution to eradicate capitalism. – GBCTG
That one wouldn’t bother me if it wasn’t true.
Militant academic elitists are spying on you at this very moment as part of their agenda to strip us of our God-given right to hate our fellow man. – GBCTG
Shelby is announcing a 1200HP Mustang. Just last week I saw a Shelby GT500 SuperSnake scoot down the road and it made me feel so inadequate I worried that I might have to get some adult stem cell organs grown – my testicles fell off as it left me in the dust. That is MacLaren F1 territory right there but I doubt highly that the 1200 horses can be used for anything but straight-line racing.
I did ask Cruel Wife if I could configure/build a GT500. With my choices of add-ons the price came to be $108.684. I’m an expensive bitch. She said no frelling way.
Gun deaths… the article puts it like so:
The statistical difference is dramatic, according to a Washington Post analysis of data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A white person is five times as likely to commit suicide with a gun as to be shot with a gun; for each African American who uses a gun to commit suicide, five are killed by other people with guns.
Where a person lives matters, too. Gun deaths in urban areas are much more likely to be homicides, while suicide is far and away the dominant form of gun death in rural areas. States with the most guns per capita, such as Montana and Wyoming, have the highest suicide rates; states with low gun ownership rates, such as Massachusetts and New York, have far fewer suicides per capita.
Yeah, but how many of those 151 african-americans who are killed by other people with guns are killed by other black people with guns? The authors are strangely reluctant to talk about that. Sure enough, if you dig down into the sad stories mentioned, you can find that information. The knowledge that a subculture is eating itself and then hypocritically has riots when one of their gun-wielding kids gets shot by cops isn’t a warm-fuzzy kind of knowledge, to be sure.
Lastly, Joe Weider is dead. A chidhood hero has passed and he always had a positive word to say or advice to give. I would say he lived well. 93 is a pretty good age to live for.
