Here are, in my view, interesting, noteworthy columns and articles from the past week that I highly recommend (You will note that on occasion, I do not endorse the opinions of the author and may point that out. Despite my disagreements, I still feel the piece is worth a read).
Shed a Tear for those Under-Appreciated Bureaucrats Who Get Lavish Pensions and Live in $700K Homes
“Perhaps we can create a civilian version of the Medal of Honor, given to the bureaucrat who suffers the most because of the ‘sledgehammer’ cuts and those mean people on ‘web sites.’
“Indeed, I think we have our first recipient. But brace yourself before you read this passage. The anguish and suffering may haunt you for the rest of your life. This bureaucrat is enduring unimaginable hardship."
The right way to combat gun violence
“The problem with most gun control laws is that they impose a burden on the law-abiding that lawbreakers can usually evade. What is needed is an approach that focuses tightly on altering the behavior of criminals. There are proven steps that can hobble the dangerous without penalizing the harmless. What works in preventing violent crime? One remedy is simple, though not cheap…”
Double barrel Biden, rape whistle Salazar, and my AR-15 giveway
"Now, before I proceed, allow me to say that if I were a woman – and I’m not (but I do like Kate Hudson films) – but if were a lass, I’d tell gun-grabbing democrats to kiss my Pilates because they do not care about your person or family and would rather y’all be a sitting duck to demented perps. Oh well, what can you expect from a party that supports Planned Parenthood."
Why does anyone need to read about celebrities?
“…prissy Brit Piers Morgan thought he’d hit on a real showstopper with, ‘I don’t know why anyone needs an assault rifle.’ Of course, where he comes from, policemen carry wooden sticks.
“Since when do Americans have to give the government an explanation for why they ‘need’ something? If that’s the test, I can think of a whole list of things I don’t know why anyone needs.”
I'm committed to abstinence, virgin is not a dirty word
“ I haven’t had sexual intercourse in almost four years. Now, this is not to say I haven’t done anything I wouldn’t do if Jesus were in the room. I am not perfect. But for the past three and a half years, in the ball park of my love life, there have been no home runs.
“I simply made a choice, for ethical, moral, and religious reasons, not to engage in baby-making activities, and I have stuck to that decision for well over three years.
“You are probably asking yourself, ‘Self, why on earth is she telling me this’?”
It’s a Boy…Err...Girl…Err…to Hell With It, Who Knows
"Journey back with me, if you will, to a simpler time. To a dark and ominous period known as American history up until now.
“An oppressive period when society actually believed the genitals you left your mother’s womb with determined your gender. A tyrannical time when parents actually parented according to the acknowledged moral standard of the universe, rather than enabling and validating their offspring’s unhealthy tantrums and desires.
“We are entering a brave new world.”
“The report said people are getting dumber — at least I think that's what it said, but the big words kept throwing me off.”
