In what can only be described as a posthumous victory for raging ******* Tamerlan Tsarnaev, Williams-Sonoma, the (absolutely amazing) kitchen-stuff company, has pulled pressure cookers--which the Tsarnaevs built into bombs--from shelves in Massachusetts.

I used to read about China’s Cultural Revolution, and think: “how could a society become so completely irrational and illogical?”

I think I am starting to see how....

Well, we have to ban fireworks and those radio-controls from toys, too.

At the same time NASA has sent some cellphones into orbit (after a little furbishment) to see if common electronic devices are sufficiently robust these days to begin serving as SATELLITES.

Ever check out the timer on the more advanced electric pressure cookers? The boys from Chechnya used the more primitive third-world stovetop designs so they had no timers ~ that necessitated the adaptation of a toy's remote control to set them off.

Let me tell you a modern electric pressure cooker with an 8 volt battery replacing the 120 V external source is one dickens of a device for building a bomb with other every day chemicals!

Power converters are now small enough you might not even need to bypass the external power cord ~ lots of ways to do this!

From being replacements to $100,000,000 satellites to serving as new weapons of war today's everyday electronic devices are marching ahead ~ "Make Way For Your New Machine Masters"

YOu just never know when a pressure cooker will “accidentally” fall off a store shelf and detonate! They're evil I tell you.

Now you know.

I felt the same way about the German Jews in the 30s.How could they....? My question was answered under the Clinton regime and reinforced under the imposter's rule now. Despite what the judas goats opine as they pacify the sheep until the appointed time, the future of the Nation looks dim.

You can buy em at Wal-Mart. I’ve used mine twice a week for 16 years. Cooked more than 500 squirrels, a hundred rabbits, lots of venison, ten tons of rice, and acres of squash. Highly efficient cooker. Knocks the thunder out of squirrels. I also use it to cook chicken and ham bones for soup. Easter ham and great northern beans...Mmmmmm

Just how ignorant do liberals and their dishonest lying lawyers (triple redundant I know) have to be to think banning pressure cookers is a solution?

Rag head 6th century camel humpers will simply find another container.

IF William Sonoma actually wants to be part of the solution they could report purchases of pressure cookers to any sand monkey. If we can keep them focused on getting pressure cookers they would be easier to track.

“I felt the same way about the German Jews in the 30s”


American Jews voted 70+% for this enemy from within in 2012. Seems they never got the message.

How is that possible for such an intelligent people?

Radio host Mark Davis proved this wrong yesterday when he called a local WS (Dallas) store yesterday. They did not pull them off the shelves. If any store did ... it was an isolated incident.

One of my life long Jewish friends, super rich and super conservative once said to me that if the Jews were as smart as every one thinks they are, they would be 100% conservative, not 25%.

He has no sympathy for liberal American Jews and counts not a single one as a friend, he says they are too stupid to be his friend.

No liberal ever forgets it if they happen to get into a political discussion with him, and they never win, because he has a photographic memory, and will not allow a single fact to be twisted.

How about all those knives on their shelves. Last I checked that deadly instrument accounted for a whole lot more death and destruction then a pressure cooker. Seems like it is not just the government that is run by a bunch a PC pansies.
God help us.
