  • Open Carry: the New Normal. So How Should Folks React?

    06/08/2015 8:55:31 AM PDT · by rktman · 50 replies ^ | 6/8/2015 | Michael Walsh
    When I was growing up on a series of Marine Corps bases across the country, the phrase “man with a gun” was comforting, not scary. Yet as the anti-gun movement gradually took control of the public debate, it became not just frightening — especially to those who knew nothing about firearms — but a matter for instant police action. Today, with open-carry laws proliferating — Texas is about to adopt open carry — the sight of a civilian packing heat may be the New Normal. But what are the etiquette rules so we don’t frighten children, horses and the Pansy...

    There is nothing that I can write here which will be of more value than actually watching the video. We’re at a turning point. I genuinely believe that this is a moment on which we’ll reflect… and the people who refused to fight back, who refused to run a damn cartoon, will find themselves on the wrong side of history.

    ( -- Two professors from the University of Illinois; one specializing in materials science, the other in electrical engineering, have combined their talents to take the idea of printing circuits onto non-standard materials one step further by developing a conductive ink that can be used in a traditional rollerball ink pen to draw circuits by hand onto paper and other porous materials. In their paper published in Advanced Materials, team leads Jennifer Lewis, Jennifer Bernhard and colleagues describe how they were able to make a type of ink from silver nanoparticles that would remain a liquid while in the pen,...

    “Without a doubt, people are stepping more gingerly. People are tiptoeing their way through this.”- Ted Rall, liberal editorial cartoonist. Last week’s firestorm over an editorial cartoon at the New York Post is still burning it’s way through the media and the blogosphere, and in the wake of Eric Holder’s declaration that Americans (read: white Americans) are cowards and James Clyburn’s claim that rejection of stimulus funds is motivated by racism, the reactions are naturally mixed and sometimes contentious. Reverend Al Sharpton, for example, is demanding investigations and protests. MSNBC is having shouting matches. Some cartoonists are simply preparing to...
  • Molly Norris, Artist Behind 'Everybody Draw Mohammed Day' Cartoon, Goes Into Hiding

    (Sept. 15) -- So much for freedom of speech. At the urging of the FBI, Molly Norris, the Seattle-based illustrator and cartoonist whose satirical drawing marking "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" resulted in death threats, global protests and impassioned debate about religion and censorship, has been forced to change her name and abandon her former life as a result of her controversial cartoon. The news that Morris had, out of concerns for her safety, decided to go into hiding was first reported in the Seattle Weekly today, a paper where Norris' cartoons had regularly appeared: The gifted artist is alive and...

    ....I initially had mixed feelings about Everybody Draws Mohammed Day. Provocation for its own sake is one of the dreariest features of contemporary culture, but that's not what this is about. Nick Gillespie's post reminds us that the three most offensive of the "Danish cartoons" - including the one showing Mohammed as a pig - were not by any Jyllands-Posten cartoonists but were actually faked by Scandinavian imams for the purposes of stirring up outrage among Muslims.As Mr Gillespie says: It is nothing less than amazing that holy men decrying the desecration of their religion would create such foul images,...

    Everyone Draw Mohammed--the blog ^ | 5/13/2010 | Aaron Worthing
    The terrorists threaten to murder anyone who insults or even depicts their prophet in a cartoon. And as long as it is a handful of individuals being threatend—Salman Rushdie, Matt Stone, Trey Parker, and the dutch cartoonists—that threat is effective. You might even look at the murder of Theo Van Gogh and conclude it is not a bluff. But it is a bluff. Because if enough people do it at once, they will not be able to carry through their threat. They can’t kill us all. It’s that simple. That is why we must draw Mohammed. We must draw early...

    First Annual Everybody Draw Mohammad Day Michael C. Moynihan | April 23, 2010 Via Dan Savage's blog at The Stranger, some clever chappie (I don't know who) has declared May 20, 2010 "Everybody Draw Mohammad Day," in support of Matt Stone and Trey Parker and in opposition to religious thuggery. Why May 20? I haven't a clue, though it could have something to do with Otto ascending the throne of Greece. Or, more likely, King Sancho IV of Castile's founding of the Study of General Schools of Alcalá. I will be employing my tremendous skill as an illustrator, of course,...

    WASHINGTON, Sept. 7, 2006 – Thousands of Kentuckians are expected to show their patriotism at the Sept. 10 Freedom Walk in Louisville, Ky., a volunteer organizer for the event said yesterday. “I think it’s more than appropriate that we show support for our troops who have their lives on the line daily to ensure that we have freedom,” Wayne Hettinger told American Forces Press Service during a telephone interview from his office in Louisville. “The response we’ve had in the Louisville area has been phenomenal,” Hettinger said, noting he and other Louisville Freedom Walk organizers are preparing for a large...

    KITTANNING - Borough Police Chief Ed Cassesse said his department received more than a dozen calls within five minutes regarding several box-van trucks that were driving through city streets with graphic anti-abortion posters on their sides. According to Kathy Knepshield, a staff member of the Armstrong County YMCA, several of the trucks rolled past the YMCA on North Water Street around noon and one of the drivers was allegedly taking photos of children in an outdoor day camp. Knepshield said the posters, bearing images of an aborted fetus, upset many of the children in the camp. "The first time a...
  • Rumsfeld: Don't Draw Conclusions From Decision on Deployment

    WASHINGTON, May 11, 2006 – The decision to delay deployment of one Army brigade from Germany to Iraq does not mean officials have decided to draw down troops in Iraq, Defense Secretary Donald H. Rumsfeld said yesterday. Concluding that putting an Army brigade's deployment to Iraq on hold makes a statement about Iraq's stability or a troop drawdown ahead is like "taking one tulip and deciding it's spring," the secretary said on a radio talk show. It's premature to draw sweeping conclusions from the decision to keep the 2nd Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, in Schweinfurt, Germany, until further notice, Rumsfeld...

    The Engineer ^ | 4/24/06
    In an attempt to tackle gun crime in the UK, researchers from Loughborough University are developing an innovative identification system that will use CCTV cameras to spot individuals carrying concealed firearms. Starting in June, the three-year multi-environment deployable universal software application (Medusa) project aims to develop intelligent software that can detect a person carrying a concealed weapon in real time. While it is difficult to predict if someone is carrying a gun before crime occurs, Professor Alastair Gale, head of Loughborough University's Applied Vision Research Centre and leader of Medusa, said there are a number of cues the CCTV operator...

Before he can shin up a second barrier of tall concrete pillars topped with seismic sensors and a layer of steel mesh more than an arm's-length wide, U.S. Border Patrol agents close in fast and arrest him . That scene is repeated dozens of...

    JERUSALEM - Israel will determine its border with the West Bank in the absence of talks with the Palestinians, and then build a wall and move all settlers to the Israeli side, acting Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said in an interview published Friday. On Thursday Olmert said Israel will draw its final borders by 2010, for the first time setting a deadline for what is expected to be a unilateral large-scale West Bank pullback. Olmert, in comments carried by the Yediot Ahronot daily Friday, also threatened to assassinate incoming Palestinian Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh of Hamas if he is involved...

    There's a new film coming out called "In the Name of Allah," which is a film that explores the struggles of homosexual Muslims. Now, Muslim extremists are going nuts over these Mohammed cartoons (see here, here, here and here) and are destroying embassies around the world and going after cartoonists for just drawing the forbidden Mohammed icons. That tops their list. Second on their hit list is probably homosexuality. I don't think

    Let’s Call It a Draw Osama’s generous offer. He’s still got it! With the release of his latest audiotape, Osama bin Laden took complete control of the news cycle. He was the top story on every news channel, front-page headline in print. His words seized the world’s attention, and demonstrated that the public fascination with him remains his greatest power. His terrorist armies are scattered, his state sponsors overthrown, his safe havens reduced to a slowly diminishing cluster of temporary sanctuaries on the Afghan-Pakistan frontier. But with ten minutes of rambling into a tape recorder he can take over the...

SPIDALIERE Lancaster New Era Thursday, December 09, 2004 - David Stoltzfus says there's only one reason he would take down the photos of President George W. Bush he has displayed at his baked-goods stand in Lancaster's Central Market. Bush would have had to have lost the recent election. Instead, he beat Democratic challenger John Kerry to win a second term. "If it were Kerry that won, he'd be up there," says Stoltzfus, who operates the Upper Crust stand. Doesn't matter, says City Councilman Nelson Polite. "It should...
