AJ's out at Gawker, Cook's in, the world keeps turning for folks not in NYC media, because they don't know/care who either one is. 10 Jan 13

Sigh. We hadn’t really heard of Gawker writer John Cook until just this week, when he made a splash by publishing a two-year-old list of legal, registered gun owners in New York City. Sure, the list was out of date, and the morally questionable stunt had already been pulled by the folks at the Journal News in suburban New York. Cook gave the piece his own special spin, though, by titling it, “Here Is a List of All the Assholes Who Own Guns in New York City.” (Cook eventually relented under a storm of criticism, replacing “assholes” with “handsome, law abiding citizens.” Apparently women don’t own guns in New York?) So, how about a promotion?

In an industry of bottom feeders its really tough to stand out as a particularly disgusting specimen.

But Cook manages to. Of course he has been promoted.

He won’t be given the choice of “head first or feet first” when it’s wood-chipper time.

Thanks Nachum.

“Animal Farm”

we are living in a mixture of this book’s scenario, “1984” and “A Clockwork Orange.”

Just goes to show what drugs did to folks back in the 60s and 70s, cuz our entire society is reaping the sad/bad harvest...

If gun owners behaved like SEIU members and went to this man’s house and protested, would the MSM have a conniption fit?

That is exactly what should be done. When the LSM complains about it they should be confronted about the double standard.

Written by a Russian - in Pravda - It’s called “Americans never give up your guns”. It’s a must read:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Americans never give up your guns

These people are unconscionable leftoid anti-gun zealots.

Now they are using the same technique to expose Texas gun owners.

Any single person on a published list that gets mugged or gets his house broken into within a month of the list coming out should sue the Paper, the Editor and the News man for damages etc.

Any person that gets hurt should try to press criminal charges for accessory.
