*sigh* Another day, another workplace man-caused disaster. Quick, cue the anti-gun brigade before this crisis goes to waste. Were burning daylight here, people!
Shoot, ready, aim! (Love that Al Capone look on Dianne)
This is what happens when words no longer mean anything: partisans rush in to claim that A actually means B even though common sense, in conjunction with your lyin eyes, tells you that A is actually, well, A. Butt when words no longer have any meaning, they can mean anything.
Prog math problems: the answer is always equality
Accordingly, in the post-9/11, post-American world the original meanings of certain words have simply slipped down the memory hole:
- Aldous Huxley, 1984
As a result, our military rules of engagement morphed from where engagement meant battle to now, where it means surrender. Hence fundamentally transforming rules of engagement to rules of disengagement.
No fighting here boys, this is a gun-free zone!
And if you disagree, sir, the New Army definitely does Not Want You!
Obamas New Army. The Few. The Proud
Given the administrations full adoption of Newspeak a key component of our new Common Core Curriculum, butt thats another story - its easy to understand how things have become a bit muddled down the military chain of command. SultanKnish explains at length, butt heres a short take on the phenomenon :
The Obama Administration has shifted the primacy of the conflict to the ideological sphere. Like the rest of the left, it would rather fight ideological wars, which are its strength, than military conflicts, which aren't.
The left doesn't really understand ideas, but it does understand word games. To alter language is to alter the consensual reality of a subject population. The Oceanian reality of the media may not do anything to the reality in Afghanistan, but it certainly shifts the reality in America.
With these letters you have the power to say anything!
So as everyone - politicians, newscasters and journalists - continue to confuse and muddle the specs and abilities of various rifles, pistols, M-16s and Ak-47s, the important thing for us to take away from this latest tragedy is that people dont kill other people on their own; guns do that for them.
Therefore, the fact that our Navy Yard shooter had been treated by the VA for psychological issues including hearing voices in his head can lead you to no conclusion other than we need stricter gun safety laws. Which will be enforced with the same level of effectiveness as the ones we already have on the books, as long as we continue to let crazy people blend into the surroundings rather than restraining them. Besides, dont we all hear words in our head these days that make no sense?
And as you may imagine, a huge relief washed over the White House when it was revealed that the shooter was a Buddhist (although I guess he was still working on that better living through zen part) not a Muslim. That freed everyone up to immediately focus on the evil guns that perpetrated this unthinkable violence on another peaceful U.S. military base.
Gun Free Zone, of course.
And to shift the discussion back to the do-nothing Republicans in Congress who forced Big Guy to implement that red line he drew with sequester cuts. As a result the Navy Yard was forced to cut its security which led to the death of 12 employees. They should be ashamed of themselves. I know; that doesnt explain why the subcontractor gave our shooter security clearance, butt thats irreverent because again, in the age of Newspeak, responsibility resides where we say it resides not where you think it resides.
As I said, when words no longer have any meaning, they can mean anything.

'The question is,' said Humpty Dumpty, 'which is to be master that's all.'"
George Orwell wrote ‘’1984’’, not Aldous Huxley.
“That’s silly’’, said Alice, “No one can believe in impossible things! “I dare say you haven’t tried’’, said The Red Queen’’. “Why, when I was your age I could believe in six impossible things before breakfast!’’.
