Random Thoughts: Bundy, Tax Collectors, and Being a Liberal

Posted on April 16, 2014 9:00 am

Not really sure why we need Vox’s explanatory journalism when we already have Media Matters and Jay Carney.

I had a Bachelors in Science, but then I got married.

I don’t really get the Bundy thing. Can’t he just hold his meetings of NO MA’AM somewhere else?

When the college tuition bubble bursts, we’ll have people holding up signs saying, “Will talk nonsense about race and gender for food.”

I consider the taxes taken from me as paying for my right to complain, and I will get my money’s worth.

The reason I like a mugger over a tax collector is that a mugger never acts like you’re supposed to thank him.

Steps to being a liberal:
1. Declare yourself the rational, reality-based one
2. Make only emotion-based arguments

There’s nothing sadder/cuter than an asylum for criminally insane babies.

Is there any good metric for measuring the military’a efficiency? Like dollars spent versus dollars of damage done?

So Mike Bloomberg knows as much about Christianity as he does about guns.

    I think it’s cute how Bloomberg and his minions think the NRA is just some big tall guy that looks like Lurch, or maybe Andre the Giant, running around intimidating people into doing what he says about guns.

    {deep tall-guy voice} You! Politician! C’mere! You will not pass this law or there will be an accident, if you get my meaning.

    [politician] **gulp** yes sir!

    {deep tall-guy voice} Good lad. Now run along before I get hungry again!

    No. But there are quite a few people making a good living looking for it. I am currently putting my own daughter through college on what I get paid to find this measure.

    An “interview” at the throne: “I’m Mike Bloomberg, what’s the Big Guy got for me? I’m ready to take my rightful place at His side.”
    *checking Book of Life* “Bloomberg? Sorry, He never knew you. You’re done here.”
    *sounds of caps gnashing*

    Other reasons to like a mugger over a tax collector:

    * No mugger has ever appeared as self-righteous pleading the Fifth as Lois Lerner did.

    * Muggers don’t received taxpayer-funded retirement plans for doing so.

    * The mugger shows some judiciousness over where the money gets spent once it’s taken from you.

    * You can understand the mugger’s rules and regulations pretty easily.

    * Muggers rarely target victims based on their political views.

    i would think that measuring the military efficiency would be relatively easy if the politicians would stop throwing away victories and would learn the difference between the tactical and the strategic. but that’s just me. well, me and harry summers (On Strategy: A Critical Analysis of the Vietnam War by Harry G. Summers)

    btw and only slightly related, the retiring of the A-10 will allegedly save $3.7 billion. obama phones cost $2 billion and obama vacations are said to have cost $1.4 billion in 2011 alone. save the warthog!

    Matthew 19:24………….”It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter heaven, unless he donates heavily to gun control.”

    “I am telling you if there is a God, when I get to heaven I’m not stopping to be interviewed. I am heading straight in. I have earned my place in heaven. It’s not even close.”

    To quote the Attorney General, “Don’t go there, buddy!”

    I guess he missed the bit in Sunday School where they taught that we’re saved by faith alone, “lest any man should boast.”
