The Watering Hole, Tuesday May 27th, 2014 – Environmental News and Food Politics

So, what are we for, us libs and progressives? We know what we hate.

How about if we serve up some community power generated by the tides?

Wave (pun intended) goodbye to your power company.

  1. Joe, the fucking idiotic halfwit shit-eating non-plumber, has some words of condolence for Richard Martinez, whose son was killed with a gun held by a sniveling asshole:

    “There are no critical words for a grieving father. He can say whatever he wants and blame whoever he’d like – it’s okay by me. You can’t take a step in his shoes – at least I can’t,” Wurzelbacher wrote. “But the words and images of Mr. Martinez blaming ‘the proliferation of guns’, lobbyists, politicians, etc.; will be exploited by gun-grab extremists as are all tragedies involving gun violence and the mentally ill by the anti-Second Amendment Left.”

    Yeah, “no critical words for a grieving father,” except for all the words he just wrote. Fuck you, fucking shithead fuck.

    • Sometimes when I’m driving I flip to the RW talk station just to hear their current delusion. This morning I heard that this tragedy could have been averted if only California made it easier for people to carry guns. Wasn’t the shooter in a car? Would we really be safer if random citizens just started shooting at a moving vehicle?

    • The biggest problem I have these days is deciding which I would rather see this country rid itself of. Would it be stupid shits, or guns? Or would getting rid of stupid shits mean that guns are no longer a threat?

      Decisions decisions.

    • The issue that needs to be addressed is that this particular shooter, like so many before him, was known to be dangerous by everyone around him but he was still able to legally buy deadly weapons.

      The solution, or the beginning to a solution, is to discuss and enact legislation that will make it harder for psychopaths to buy deadly weapons.

      The problem is Samjoe the Unplumber and his ilk who make any discussion of rational gun laws impossible.

      • Pete, don’t you understand? It is a slippery slope. If you take the guns away from psychopaths because they commit heinous crimes, then the next thing you know, they’ll be disarming postal workers, and then plumbers and any other idiot who commits a crime with a gun. We’re better off having everyone packing. That way, when somebody pulls some shit.,everybody can fire away just like the old Wild West. This is their vision. You see something wrong with that? Shoot first and ask questions later.

        • Ah yes. The good ol’ “Wild West” when sheriffs and marshals arbitrarily enforced a no gun ordinance in virtually every dusty town.

    • Actually, I’m one of the Pro-Second Amendment Left. I just focus on the ‘well regulated militia” part, as a precursor to the conversation about why any friggin lunatic can buy as much guns ‘n ammo as he can afford. After the beer, that is…

      • I has a vending account at a national Guard Armory years ago. I got to se the internal workings from a safe distance. That is the definition of a well regulated militia. You know what they do with their guns when they are done with them? They lock them up so nobody goes home and shoots up his family (which actually happened a few times in the 1960’s which is why the Army did the responsible thing).

      • Exactly. Some people may argue about the exact meaning of the phrase “well regulated militia” but it certainly implied that arms would be allowed to those who are mentally, morally, and physically fit to own them. Now? We have idiots who want to give blind people conceal/carry permits.

  2. Unka Crackpot is speaking out loud again:

    “He’s saying, I love you!” Robertson insisted. “Each dish, he’s saying, ‘Terry, I love you.’ If you understood that, you say, ‘Darling, I’ve got a treat for you… wait until we get behind closed doors, and you see the treat I have for you.’”

    But when a woman does the dishes, she’s just doing her “duty.”

    • Dad was a pretty smart guy. He opined that murder rates would be cut dramatically if it was against the law for the news and print media to ever say or print the name of murderers or show their pictures. Since we adults seem to be prevented from a frank discussion of gun laws I say it would be worth a try.

  3. Tidal energy is way cool. Can’t wait for the rest of the planet to wake the F up and start looking at it.
    Crickets…Churrp.
