Baltimore violence because... teh Gays

by jmbar2

Another one of our village idiots in Texas has spoken:

You look at what’s going on in Baltimore today, you know, you see issues that are raised there. And healthy marriages are the ones between a man and a woman because they can have a healthy family and they can raise children in the way that’s best for their future, not only socially but psychologically, economically, from a health perspective."

– U.S. Rep. Bill Flores, R-Texas, linking the crisis in Baltimore to same-sex marriage.
(Thanks to the Texas Freedom Network)

Who else are we supposed to blame today?
- Obama
- blacks
- teh gays
- immigrants
- liberals
- ISIS
- European liberals
- the poor
- slutty women

Who is left out of this hatefest?

Note: Thanks everyone for the great discussions! Received suggestion to change the proposed name from "Right to Evacuate" to "Right to Vacate".  I like it.  Other suggestions are welcome. If you like this idea, please forward it to your local legislators with interests in gun issues, especially regarding guns in schools.  -JMBar2

------------------

I am appalled at the rapid pace of right-to-carry gun legislation in Texas.  Gun lovers may achieve the right to carry, but we must also have the absolute right to evacuate any space where we feel at risk due to the presence of guns. Treat it the same way as the right to evacuate a building that is on fire.

Proposed strategy

Every right-to-carry proposal must include a provision allowing students, workers, and business patrons to choose to leave any environment where guns are present without question or penalty.

- Students can leave any class without penalty if they feel at risk in the presence of armed persons.

- Workers can leave their workplaces with cause - example Walmart workers can immediately leave the store without penalty if an armed person enters.

- Restaurant patrons can leave in mid meal and settle the bill later.

Attach this as a rider to all right-to-carry bills.  Call it "The Right to Carry- Right to Evacuate" rider.

This rider will force the business community to consider what is a reasonable response for employees/patrons who find themselves around people openly carrying guns.  No one should be required to remain in the presence of gun toters if they feel they are at risk. It would also need to be incorporated into OSHA and other workplace safety laws.

Law or not, this is now my personal policy. If I see someone openly packing a gun, I'm exercising my right to leave.

Immediately.

Right to pack a gun at the dog park?

by jmbar2

So some self-important a-hole goes to the local dog park, packing his pistol. Because you know, 2nd Amendment.  His dog and another dog start getting rowdy, so he shoots and kills the other dog.

Stand your ground? Self-defense?  No, he killed someone's beloved dog because he just thought it was going to hurt his dog.

God, I hate guns.

"Fixing" the "Obama Mess"

by jmbar2

Despite feeling disappointed at the election results, I am stocking my survival bunker with enough popcorn to last two years.  The greatest show on earth is about to begin as Republicans form a circular firing squad and try to roll back Obama's achievements.

Just to remind ourselves of what the Republicans will seek to "fix", please check out

I hope all the ammosexuals will now feel safe enough to come our from under their rocks to rejoice.

My Burger King boycott email

by jmbar2

I case you missed it, Burger King has decided to do a tax inversion.  I sent them the following boycott email, and encourage others to do so.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
info@3g-capital.com

Mr BurgerKing:

You derive many benefits from the taxes I pay, including:

   - Public education of your workers
    -Stable public infrastructure - electricity, water, roads, communications
    -Security and rule of law - police, US justice system, U.S. military/Homeland Security
    -Subsidies of low wage workers in terms of welfare benefits, food stamps, subsidized health care
    -Future costs of low wage workers who will never be able to save for major purchases or retirement, or put their kids through college.

Seems like you want all the benefits of being an American company, without contributing your fair share.  You are externalizing your costs to the US taxpayer, while shielding your gains to avoid taxes.

This doesn't work for me or most of the American people.  You guys are carpetbaggers.

You have permanently lost my business.  Don't let the door hit you on your way out.

I never liked that creepy-assed clown anyway.

OK, so I qualified for Obamacare and selected a plan with BlueCross BlueShield. In order to start the insurance, they wanted to collect medical history.  This doesn't make any sense.

If no preexisting conditions are excluded, why do they need to do a medical history? I refused to answer any questions, stating that such discussions would be addressed with my physician.

Is any one else having this experience? What's behind this?

Thanks.

#Where are the 30 million?

by jmbar2

In this time of anxiety for hundreds of lost school girls in Nigeria, let us not forget that right here in this country, we have lost 30 million tea partier/patriots.

I don't understand why there isn't more effort to search for them. They must be out there somewhere. DOESN'T ANYONE CARE ABOUT THIS?!!!

I don't know much about satellite technology, so someone please 'splain to me if this is, or is not possible.

Is there any way to take daily satellite photos of the possible regions where the girls might be, to be tracked and explored by everyone on the internet? If I could see my own car parked in my driveway on Google, why couldn't we track convoys of trucks and people?

Open to your comments.  Thanks.

Penitent Fashion for the Poor

by jmbar2

I’ve been unemployed for a long time, a really long time. I am broke, and gonna have to apply for food stamps soon. I really feel bad about this. Since I have so much time on my hands--being long-term unemployed and all--I’m working on some small business ideas.

I saw a special last night on Fox News called “The Great Food Stamp Binge”, about lazy bums on food stamps. Being on food stamps has become a mortal sin, at least in the eyes of Fox and fans. So this gave me an idea: If you are depraved enough to require foodstamps, it’s about time to demonstrate some remorse over it.

Big Tex and Big Rex (Texas Freedom Network).
The Texas State Board of Education will meet in September to begin its review of science textbooks to be adopted by the state.  Because Texas is one of the largest textbook buyers in the nation, the choices made by Texas textbook committees exert a disproportionate impact on what textbooks are available nation wide.

The Texas Freedom Network is asking for support.  Please sign their "Stand Up For Science" petition and make your rational voices heard.

They also offer this wonderful visual of Big Texas and Big Rex.  Don't let this become the cover of your child's next science book!

One of the more unbelievable stories emerging from the Texas Legislature’s epic efforts to pass antiabortion legislation was a press release from the Texas Department of Public Safety saying that police had confiscated 18 jars of feces and urine from protesters trying to enter the state capitol building.  Incredulous investigators have since been trying to track down the source of the story  at the Texas DPS.

State Rep Donna Howard (D) and reporters from the Express News, have requested evidence of the allegations from DPS Director Steve McCraw. So far no response.

Something about this story just doesn’t smell right.  Stay tuned.

Thanks to the Texas Freedom Network: http://tfninsider.org/...
