Good Morning.

Let's take a look a few years back at a certain governor of this Commonwealth. You might recognize his picture.

Hell of a Reason to have a Flashback Friday

In May of 2012 I wrote this blog - A Rambling Thought on Firearms. Just yesterday I re-read and I have to say it still applies.

Insanity
Author: BobR    Date: 10/04/2017 14:53:12

Monday was a pretty bad day for me. I went to work with a cold, having found out the day before that a co-worker had died suddenly and unexpectedly. The first thing I saw when I opened by laptop was the horrific shooting in Las Vegas. Later that day, was the news about Tom Petty. On top of it all, Cheetolini was still making everything worse with his non-stop stupidity, blundering, lack of decorum, and disdain for anyone who isn't rich, white, and male.

One definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. Yet here we were again facing an insane level of carnage, and we were treated to the same lame "thoughts and prayers", tossed off almost as if it was a social requirement before going back to cat videos. Once again, we were met with the same "this is not the time or place to discuss common-sense gun regulations" (although they likely word that as "gun control").

Ask a Vet

Good Morning.

It's a horrifying morning on the Veteran's Front. I was skimming my usual sources, and the top of the feed had a large number of stories that I find disturbing. In no particular order, I'll run with the headlines...

Why is a foreign leader lashing out at the Trump administration when we are only trying to help them? It’s beyond rude!

Happy Anniversary!
Author: BobR    Date: 09/30/2017 01:51:40

I know Mala wrote a blog this morning about our 10 year anniversary. The blog has opined on many events through the years, including the 2008, 2012, 2016 Election cycles, Sandy Hook, Trayvon Martin, Occupy Wall Street, Government Shutdown.

Kenny Pick over at Turn Up The Night turned his entire show this evening into a celebration of our blog. That was awesome of him to do that, and lots of fun. In preparation for the show, I went through a LOT of my past blogs and took notes of the ones I thought were really special. Naturally, with all the fun chaos, we never got to them.

So - with that in mind, here is a 10 year retrospective of my favorite blogs (the ones that I wrote)...

Whither Now?: There's no looking back
ReDeclaration of Independence: Modifications from one King George to another...
We Are the Change: A song that I have yet to record
And the Wall(st) Came Tumbling Down: The crash of 2008
It Takes a Planet: Going from it takes a village in steps up to the whole earth
White Like Me: pretty much what you think it is
In Defense of Big Government: Socialism works for some things
PAC Man - A Story For Our Times: Investigative journalism!
Romancing the Gun: Post Sandy Hook

Taking a Knee
Author: BobR    Date: 09/28/2017 13:42:12

It's been pretty hard to avoid all the hubbub this week surrounding the growing movement within NFL football players (and in some cases coaches and/or owners) to "take a knee" during the national anthem. This was started last year when Colin Kaepernick first sat, then knelt on one knee during the anthem. His reason for doing so has been clearly explained. He has been very honest about his actions and feelings.

Along the way, some people criticized him, and the handful of other players who joined him. This year, the occupant of the White House decided he wasn't getting enough attention, and blasted them (in a tweet, natch), calling each of them a "son of bitch", and demanding they be fired.

As expected, that revved things up a bit. The following Sunday, the "protest" ramped up exponentially. Entire teams stood with locked arms in solidarity. The Pittsburg Steelers stayed in the locker room. Some of the Cleveland Browns had a prayer circle - which had to really confuse the God & Guns crowd.

Cue the outrage from the armchair warriors.
