Rick Sanchez fired

I made a post about a way I agreed with one thing Rick Sanchez, formerly of CNN, said and now he’s gone and gotten himself fired for :

  1. Calling Jon Stewart a bigot, and
  2. Saying he does not think Jewish people significantly suffer from discrimination in the US and control parts of the media

Isn’t that just absolutely great. Continue reading

Guns, Licensing, State Encouraged killing?

First: I really enjoy the blog I’m linking too here. It is often funny and simply fun to read. And I do this for entertainment first and foremost.

Over on the BL1Y Blog there is a very short post, with only a few comments (as of now), that raises some excellent questions.

For those of you living not only under a rock, but wearing earplugs and blinders also, there was a school shooting in Texas.

In the comments of the above first post, which was about a defensive use of a firearm, BL1Y said some stuff that got me thinking.

I think the best solution is to just increase the licensing requirements to include regular gun safety classes, and perhaps even a competency test, similar to a driving exam. If we’re going to let you carry a gun in public, I think we can also demand that your aim be okay. I’d also be in favor of criminalizing possession of a firearm while intoxicated.

I have heard these many times. I’m not going to rehash the arguments of why driving a car is not the same as using a gun (rights vs. privileges). I have a few more interesting things in mind.

They come back and throw bricks at her!

She pulls out her gun and returns the courtesy they are showing her.

Problem#1 :

How old is old enough

Suppose we have a 16-year old girl with a 35-year old man, drinking it up, and have a bit of sodomy. Should we charge the 35-year old man with a crime? What if no alcohol was involved?

What if it is a 16-year old boy with a 35-year old woman?

What if it is a 16-year old boy with a 35-year old man?

And just to cover it all, how about the 16-year old girl with a 35-year old woman?

Army Officer heading to jail?

Thomas Edward Stowers II, a 35-year old Warrant Officer with the US Army, has been arrested for allegedly engaging in sodomy with a 16-year old. The charge sheet paints a pretty bad picture. He allegedly gave the young man alcohol, takes him someplace, and engages in sodomy with him. but then there is also a charge of Sodomy by force when victim is spouse. So I’m not sure what to make of that.

More, including a picture of the Soldier, after the jump.
