Quote from the OMG Network: "George Bush Never Learned That"

Presidential Press Conference 8-28-2014 excerpt:

"I have no strategy to deal with ISIS, just as I have no strategy to deal with the Ukraine, Libya, the southern border, or anything else beyond the 18th green," he said. "Let me be perfectly clear--I have done nothing. I am doing nothing. And I'm not even planning to do more nothing--because that would actually involve doing something. I learned that at college while not editing the Harvard Law Review.

"As the world descends further into chaos in the coming weeks and months, I will diligently continue to work on my wedge game and putting--because that's where you score. George Bush never learned that. That's because he quit playing golf after 9-11. I can assure the American people that I am not a quitter."

The path of the righteous man

After 20 years, Jules Winnfield is still the coolest of the cool. 

The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness. For he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know I am the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon you.

Annie Oakley: A True Feminist Icon

“The fact is, guns do more for female empowerment than modern feminism which prefers government as their protector. But legal ownership gives you real power, equalizing the battle between you and evil. Ask any girl: The confidence from learning to shoot a pistol is far superior to any gender studies course, and a stalker is less likely to stalk if you can ventilate his groin. Which is why a whirring bullet is the ideal rape whistle and the real feminist icon should be Annie Oakley, not Sandra Fluke.” – Greg Gutfeld, Guns empower women more than feminism [via]

Bullet Proof Vests Cause Gun Violence in California

You're not gonna believe this one.

California Congressman Mike Honda (a Democrat, of course) has introduced legislation that would prohibit civilians from buying bullet proof vests.  His theory is that without a bullet-proof vest, the bad guys won't commit crimes that might result in the cops shooting at them.

Rep. Mike Honda, D-San Jose, has announced legislation that would block civilians from accessing military-grade body armor to prevent criminals from using them in gun battles with law enforcement.

You think I'm joking?  Well, here it is:

Applying Honda's steel-trap logic to other venues would lead to the obvious conclusion that if seat belts and air bags were banned, then miscreant speeders would not speed.

Banning life jackets would prevent boats from sinking.

Banning condoms would eliminate unwanted pregnancy.

How is it possible that a brainless California Congressman can produce such a riotous brain fart?  Yes, I know, the answer is simple - No brain, no pain. No pain for him, lotsa pain for us.

What will those Krazy Kalifornian's ban next - bullet proof perambulators?

Patriotism means to stand by the country. It does not mean to stand by the President

"The President is merely the most important among a large number of public servants. He should be supported or opposed exactly to the degree which is warranted by his good conduct or bad conduct, his efficiency or inefficiency in rendering loyal, able, and disinterested service to the Nation as a whole. Therefore it is absolutely necessary that there should be full liberty to tell the truth about his acts, and this means that it is exactly necessary to blame him when he does wrong as to praise him when he does right. Any other attitude in an American citizen is both base and servile. To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public. Nothing but the truth should be spoken about him or any one else. But it is even more important to tell the truth, pleasant or unpleasant, about him than about any one else."

President Theodore Roosevelt in the Kansas City Star", 149
May 7, 1918

Here are two more from T.R. that warrant cogitation

“There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism…. The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities.”

Speech before the Knights of Columbus, New York (12 October 1915).

“The death-knell of the republic had rung as soon as the active power became lodged in the hands of those who sought, not to do justice to all citizens, rich and poor alike, but to stand for one special class and for its interests as opposed to the interests of others.”

Labor Day speech at Syracuse, NY, Sept 7, 1903
