Well… they asked.

“The biggest question I have today is why was President Obama more upset about this than the terrorist bombing in Boston?”
So Hickenlooper has launched a new “Re-branding Colorado” campaign, where you can tweet or share pictures about what makes Colorado special to you. I’m trying to think of some good slogans that are spam-worthy. My mom suggested “Rock Mountain High” which is pretty good, but maybe a little too insider baseball. “Stoned, Disarmed, and Happy”? “Highest College Graduate Population in the Country, but least amount of Higher Education Funding”? (not making that up, btw) “Colorado: Let the Cleansing Begin”? “2014, Bitchez! Bring it!”?
Wait, I think I’m maybe getting off track. In any case, it’s just shiny frills to keep the clueless proles happy.
Got any suggestions?
Oh yeah, and “F*ck Denver!”
It’s a day of blegging, apparently.
Since it appears that I should be doing more gun-and-magazine-locking-upping in the near future, I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for easily lockable cases. I would prefer one that could hold more than one rifle at a time, and was a nice sturdy hard case. The plano-esque one that my ORC came with is ok, but firmly on the flimsy side. I was thinking that I should also get a separate lockable box for my OMGEEEEVILLL (but still ok enough to be grandfathered in) over-15-round magazines, just so when Officer Friendly stops you for your burnt out tail light he can’t start jumping to conclusions right away. Something that doesn’t scream “GUNS!!!!” would probably be good.
I was looking at this and this (not affiliated with Amazon or it’s affiliates, and any affiliations are purely in the mind of the FCC or FTC or Effin-whatever-the-hell-your-stupid-government-organizations-who-seem-to-be-obsessed-with-making-our-lives-more-difficult-are-called, merely linked for educational purposes.) A bit rich, maybe, but, as my Uncle says, “It’s only a dollar more to go first class.” And despite the recent stock market run, I have my doubts on the long-term worth of my money, so why not convert it into something useful? Something that might usefully help me stay out of jail for malum prohibitumy things? After all, you wouldn’t want any of your high-velocity rifles to escape, since they can go so fast, apparently.
Wow, that turned kinda ranty there at the end, didn’t it?
Got messages back from both of my (Democrat) senators last night–form letters that didn’t even mention any subjects at all. Just a “thank you for contacting me blah-de-blah-de-blah.”
Representin’ it, yo.
So the wait for an “instant” background check to buy a gun in CO is now over 9 days, and so the Colorado Bureau of Investigation is asking for a raise. Reward for a job well done?
Kinda funny how the only person I saw go off the road on the freshly snowy and icy roads this morning was one of the only people who didn’t have their lights on. It’s like, there’s a type of person who is just living to die screaming in a fire.
Fuck off. Seriously. Look, I like you as a governor. You seem to be doing a pretty good job at trying to fix this state’s totally messed up economy, and I really appreciated how you were avoiding things like that. I was even willing to overlook how you were a member of Guns Against Illegal Mayors Mayors Against Illegal Guns when you were mayor of Denver. But how now, instead of alienating every person in the state who doesn’t live in the middle of Denver by flat out saying “gun control, Gun Control, GUN CONTROL!!!”, you say something like “I think we should work on preventing prohibited persons from having access to firearms” and at least pretend you’re doing this for s good reason and not simply because you now have a democratic majority in congress. Mmmkay?
The wind is blowing
The neighbor’s leaves are caught up
They fall in my yard
There was an article in the newspaper that explained that Antarctic sea ice is increasing is because of two things. 1) Global Warming, and 2) The ozone hole. Yes, it actually blamed the increase of sea ice on the ozone hole.
I thought we stopped caring about O3 fifteen years ago, about the time, say, that OMGLOBALWARMING became the trendy thing to kill us all. Guess it’s 90′s retro, now, like all the neon clothes going around.
I’m switching out of shorts and going to pants. Might even tote the XD (against the internet’s advice, as if I cared what it thought). This is the first time in my entire life where the calendar has hit the first day of fall, and the weather has immediately switched to fall (day before, 9 degrees above average, day after, cold and more rain than we’ve had all year).
Of course, if I wear pants it’ll be back to hot dry and sunny, no doubt–c’est la vie.
