Well, I'll be honest, that wasn't half as bad as I expected it to be, although I think surrounding himself with children in this debate make me quite uncomfortable. I am relieved that the President didn't try to overstep his authority and issue an Executive Order that would in some way reinstate the Federal Assault Weapon Ban. I have no problem with the majority of the actions he's taking -- most of seemed to strengthen already existing laws and most of those deal with what I've said several times is the real issue, mental health. His call upon Congress to reinstate ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines, while not well received, is at least addressing the matter through the proper branch of government. To ridiculously over simplify this, you run a day care center and at the close of business one day, after sending all of the kids home you find someone has written all over the walls in permanent marker. So you take all the permanent markers away. The next day you send all the kids home and it's crayons on the wall. So you take away all the crayons. Next day, it's colored pencils. And on and on, because you're addressing the HOW of the problem; and not the WHY some fucking kid is drawing on the damn walls to begin with. So, it looks like Senator Diane Feinstein is set to become one of the top villainesses of this generation so while I usually like to keep my politics and my guns separate, there's never been a more important time for you to join, renew or extend your NRA Membership -- use this link to save $10.
And I'm not suggesting anything, but here's how to how to clean and lubricate firearms for longterm storage. You know, if you ever had to bury anything for whatever reason.
An all-terrain vehicle, also known as a quad or four-wheeler, is defined by the American National Standards Institute as a vehicle that travels on low-pressure tires, with a seat that is straddled by the operator, along with handlebars for steering control. As the name implies, it is designed to handle a wider variety of terrain than most other vehicles. Although it is a street-legal vehicle in some countries, it is not street legal within most states and provinces of Australia, the United States or Canada. Many common ATV injuries can be prevented with the use of proper protective equipment. Most ATV manufacturers recommend at least a suitable DOT-approved helmet, protective eyewear, gloves and suitable riding boots for all riding conditions.
And what my man Evren has to say is 100% truth:
I have an analogy I love to use: prohibition. What people don't realize is that America was EXTREMELY drunk before prohibition. It was a huge, huge problem (see Ken Burns' documentary, it's great). So the prohibitionists wanted to ban alcohol - without touching the root cause (crushing poverty, horrible working conditions under robber barons) of alcoholism. Sound familiar?
However, the anti-prohibitionists responded with lame bumper-sticker type arguments (blaming guns for murder is like blaming spoons for making people fat!). All that did was drive a wedge between the parties that became insurmountable. As the alcohol problem got worse and worse, the anti prohibitionists dug in deeper with really dumb, "it's my right and I say so so nyah" arguments that increasingly fell on deaf ears, and what happened? We amended the Constitution for the first time to *take away* an existing right.
My point is that if the pro-gun rights lobby continues to act retarded (guns have NOTHING to do with gun deaths! it's all video games and single parents and elitists and communists and the UN one world government!) while Sandy Hooks keep happening, the same shit can happen again. - Evren
Karijini has been called Mother Nature's own adventure world, but the description underplays the spectacular beauty of this national park in Western Australia. Here, deep, multi-hued gorges, which hold some of the world's oldest rocks, are banded with iron and precious stones. Sparkling waterfalls feed inviting pools of crystal green, and cliffs and plateaus are topped with lush vegetation. It's one of Western Australia's most alluring places to explore.
