The upshot is that a massive manhunt was set up for this Olympia Washington man who was wearing a black watch cap, black turtleneck, and carrying an umbrella while going about his normal business. Helicopters, school lockdowns, and the whole nine.

Just shows you what kind of place our country is turning into.

I went and bought 1,000 rounds of shotgun shells today and was and am pretty nervous about it. We’re going to have a sporting clays charity shoot in a couple weeks. The sales guy said he wouldn’t report me. He was happy for the sale.

Next they will be locking down the grocery store because someone saw a hunting magazine in the rack by the cash register.

In my town, we had a SWAT team called out because an 8th-grader was seen carrying a burrito into the Jr. High School.

Bloomberry and the Loopy Chicken are already trying to come up with the “toughest” anti-umbrella laws in the nation. The race is on.

In a short time, that burrito becomes a deadly weapon capable of wiping out whole classrooms of students.

In late December I was in a B&N looking for a book for a Christmas gift. I decided to check the magazines to see what they had. I found a pro-2A magazine with a scary looking pistol on the front. I decided to carry it around the store while I did my shopping. The evil looks I got from the employees and particular the cashier were worth every penny I spent on it.

The guy innocently pointed his umbrella at a police helicopter. He’s damn lucky to be alive.

Don’t leave Malloy out of the picture yet. He will call for a commission to pass universal background checks and registration of all umbrellas.

Don't you know nowadays "close enough is good enough"?

It is the thoughts that count for 'stupid new smarts kids'.
