Packing Heat On Campus.
Lots of talk lately about teachers packing heat in schools.
Well it seems to me, if teachers can carry guns on school grounds, we should also give the right to carry to the students. I mean, like, shouldn’t students have the right to fire back.
And carry rights for students could really lighten up the homework load.
Think about the benefits for a minute. Second Amendment rights could give rise to a whole new curriculum. A kid could major in quick draw (five courses, three credits each). And I’m not talking rapid pencil sketching here.
Required courses for the new program would include:
How to modify an AK-47 from semi to fully automatic. (3 credits).
Adapt a fully automatic Glock handgun to a 30 round magazine. (3 credits).
Uses for armor piercing ammunition. (3 credits).
Laser gun sights for fun and profit. (3 credits).
Operating and maintaining a .50 caliber sniper rifle. (Elective).
How to become a Mafia hitman (woman). (Elective).
Promoting your firearms skills. (Elective).
Now, no snide remarks. Let’s give the curriculum a chance. After all, kids could graduate from high school fully prepared to defend themselves in a well armed society.
Courses.include books and material.
Who could ask for anything more?
Marco Comes A Calling.
Marco Rubio went calling in the Big Apple this week for, what else, payola. Yes, he was out grubbing for cash for a purported run for the presidency in 2016.
Well does he know that in American politics you gotta have the geetus. You can’t with without a fat wallet and there are no fatter wallets than in Apple Town, NYC.
Peter King (R-NY) dissented. You can’t vote against everything the city needs and expect a payoff for it. King criticized fellow Republicans and Rubio for their votes against aid for NYC after it suffered the devastation wrought by Hurricane Sandy.
I guess Marco figures “nothing ventured, nothing gained.”
The travels of Marco. Not Rubio in NYC, but Polo in the East. (Artist unknown).
.Marco Rubio’s a real pip. Hasn’t even become minority whip. Yet look what he says He’s running for prez. Yet for people he couldn’t give a rip. . In the Big Apple he shakes down for dough Making ready for a really big show. A King says he nuts But the guy’s got some guts. He’ll snatch the dough then town he’ll blow.

Right Wing Court Activist Signals Vote.
Another guy who just can’t seem to keep his name out of the news is Associate Justice of the Supreme Court and Right Wing Extremist Antonin Scalia.
He’ s no dummy, but must be an embarrassment to his alma mater, Harvard Law School.
He is one of the most activist justices in Supreme Court history and has voted to overturn numerous acts of Congress. Fortunately for the nation, he has been in the minority in many cases.
His ideology is what is known as originalism, that is, interpreting the Constitution literally, as it was written by the guys known as our Founding Fathers and cast in iron, immutable, unchangeable.
Therefore, this radical activist opposes such notions as affirmative action, the program intended to give a break to minorities who’ve suffered from diminished opportunity all of their lives, abortion rights for women (he voted to declare Roe v. Wade unconstitutional but was in the minority) and recently voted in favor of broad application of gun carry rights (except for shoulder-borne weapons that could take down airplanes). Who knows, he could be on one of them.
Other votes based on his 18th century interpretation included sexual orientation rights (null), Miranda rights (null), the death penalty (constitutional).
In each of these cases, Scalia voted to strike down existing law making him one of the most activist justices ever.
Seeing the world through a different lens.
And based on his statements during the recent rights case before the Court, he is certain to vote to strike down The Voting Rights Act.
A Little Night Hanky Panky.
I’m really tired of these one night stands. And I’m not even a senator’s daughter.
Republican values apparently permit a senator to screw another senator’s daughter, provided it’s a one night stand.
I won’t mention any names, but if you Google Pete Domenici and Paul Laxalt you’ll learn the sordid details.
