Can we add this to the WTF list?

Rocky Mountain Gun Owners group challenges Windsor library weapons policy

The Rocky Mountain Gun Owners group is challenging the Clearview Library District’s policy prohibiting patrons from carrying weapons inside the Windsor library.

The Windsor-based gun owners’ rights group sent the library district a cease and desist letter on Friday after library staff allegedly told RMGO member Erika Sattler to leave Aug. 20 because she was carrying a concealed weapon and that she should leave the weapon in her vehicle if she wished to go back in the library.

The library’s code of conduct asks patrons to refrain from “carrying weapons of any sort except by law enforcement officers.” ...

Too sick for words

So there’s an email making the rounds, passing itself off as a “prayer request”. It lists the names of several Marines who died in Afghanistan, then goes on to excoriate President Obama for not bothering to take time out of his vacation to note their sacrifice. Problem is, those Marine deaths happened in 2010, and their sacrifice is being recycled in 2014 not to honor their service but to trash this particular President.

Some things really are just too sick for words.

Can we stop contributing to the earned media for a guy who scrapes up roadkill, plops it on his head and then certifies himself an authority on just about anything?

Here we don't go again kinda sorta

My mailbox today contained another political mailer, this time for the Republican trying to unseat the only Democrat in the state house from this part of the state. Major tea party guy, all about guns and liberty and the constitution and the Murkan dream. Not surprising, given that our local baggers are all about that stuff. They have also been very vocally supportive of birther stuff, with no small amount of racism tossed in.

What's really kind of freaking funny, here, is that this fellow isn't, um, "from here". And he sure as heck doesn't look Swedish, if you get my drift. Fact is, he's Polynesian, born in (uh oh) Hawaii, and has a name that is very obviously not European in origin; the mailer even includes a phonetic pronunciation. He just happened to come to school here, liked the place and decided to stay; and I'd be the last to argue with that.

But it is odd, this sudden silence from all those show-me-the-birth-certificate yellers. Have to wonder if this onset of political laryngitis is painful for them. Hmmm. Maybe I should just call Donald Trump, ask him to look into it . . .
