When I works,I works hard
When I moves,I moves fast
When I thinks I falls asleep

This ad was supposed to promote anti-gun legislation. What it actually did was give women a vivid demonstration of why they need to arm themselves.
And guess what? The gals agree. An article at the New York Times says,
“In the debate over firearms regulations, the voices of gun owners have largely been those of men. But at firing ranges across the country, a growing number of women are learning to use firearms and honing their skills.
“Women’s participation in shooting sports has surged over the last decade, increasing by 51.5 percent for target shooting from 2001 to 2011, to just over 5 million women, and by 41.8 percent for hunting, according to the National Sporting Goods Association.
“Gun sales to women have risen in concert. In a survey last year by the National Shooting Sports Foundation, 73 percent of gun dealers said the number of female customers had gone up in 2011, as had a majority of retailers surveyed in the two previous years.”
I find I am unable to comment honestly on how I feel about a grown man who has such a panty wad jammed up his crack that he actually sues a widow for something her dead husband may or may not have done eight years ago. “Turn the other cheek” comes to mind. Beyond that, my thoughts turn to unladylike words I try not to use.
Here is the back story …
On July 29, 2014, a jury awarded Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his lawsuit against the estate of American Sniper author Chris Kyle. Ventura claimed that the book defamed him when it claimed Kyle had punched him for saying that “the Navy SEALs deserve to lose a few.”
Ventura’s lawyer said Kyle’s claims that Ventura said he hated America, thought the U.S. military was killing innocent civilians in Iraq, and that the SEALs “deserve to lose a few” had made him a pariah in the community that mattered most to him – the brotherhood of current and former SEALs.
- As far as I can figure, Ventura never denied he’d slandered the SEALs he claimed to care so much about.
- What he denied was that Kyle had decked him.
I’m sorry but ……….. jaw dropping amazement here. A former SEAL and professional wrestler got his panties in a bunch because some other SEAL claimed to have punched him? Did the big, bad, now deceased man also call Baby Butthurt a mean name?
Ventura’s attorney suggested $5 million to $15 million would be “reasonable compensation” for “irreparable harm” to Ventura’s “reputation.”
- Ventura’s REPUTATION?!
- Is he freaking KIDDING me?!

Although the headline of this blog — “Frustrated by GOP’s Unwillingness to Take the Bait, Obama Signs First-Ever Self-Impeachment Order” — is facetious, the two dozen articles that Pundit From Another Planet has linked below the photo seem to be a very good compilation of reports on the subject. http://punditfromanotherplanet.com/2014/07/30/breaking-in-historic-move-obama-signs-executive-order-to-impeach-himself/
