The President’s New Gun Control Bill or Sandy Hook Re-visited

(2)
January 17, 2013

So the President has submitted for our consideration a new gun control bill. Just looking at the bare essentials being presented via the internet I don’t really see why the NRA has taken the automatic (pun intended) stance of deriding the Presidents bill. In case you’ve missed it the bill sets up banning automatic weapons,… Read More ›

Sandy Hook Shootings: the Un-Reality of Violence

In one of the Pulitzer Prize winning journalist and author Edna Buchanan‘s books she (The Corpse had a Familiar Face, Vice, et al) wrote about a shootout at one of Miami‘s larger shopping malls in the 80’s. “The only people who screamed and ducked for cover were the cops. Everyone else thought that an episode… Read More ›

Win, Lose, or Draw it’s All Over Tomorrow Night

Little Brother by Cory Doctorow: The Future is Now

I haven’t read a book that scared me this badly since I first picked up Pet Sematary by Stephen King. You might well ask what it was about this 2008 book that scared me.

All God’s Chillun Got Guns or Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition

Since the Aurora shooting (I’m refusing to refer to it by the press moniker of ‘Midnight Shootings) the nation has been up in arms (pun intended) about the issue of gun control and certain rabid liberals who just want to take away every American‘s firearms. It is the ‘woolly headed’ thinking of these liberal ‘peace-niks’… Read More ›

Chicken Little Politics aka Gun Control.

Everybody knows the story of Chicken Little. The small fry chicken who gets hit in the head by some debris and then runs around like a headless chicken telling everyone the sky is falling. Of course it transpires that the sky is not falling and that Chicken Little was panicking for no reason. Of course the… Read More ›

Do Not Adjust Your Set, We Have Control

Okay call me cynical, but as I wrote my last blog-post about the ‘Midnight Shooter‘ something kept nibbling away at the back of my brain. I went to sleep on it with the hopes that this brain-eating problem would make itself known when I woke up in the morning. It did. The thing that kept… Read More ›

2012 Olympics…Nero and His Fiddle

As the start date of the 2012 Olympics draws near, I cannot help but look at the money that was spent and is being spent by the government and shudder. The state of the English economy is appalling. Along with every other country in the world England is struggling to meet it’s financial obligations. Daily… Read More ›

Marijuana and Bathsalts, Oh Really?

The world was shocked to its very civilised core when the story broke about a face eating incident in Miami, Florida. For the uninitiated or those of you who were on the moon when this story broke, here are the basics of the story. Rudi Eugene was shot to death by Miami Dade police while… Read More ›

2012 Olympics: G4S Lets the Side Down on Security

So G4S, the company that helps the prisons in England to move their prisoners, who were contracted to provide the security for the 2012 Olympic Games in London, have seriously fallen short in the area of numbers. To be fair the target numbers for ‘policing’ the games has gone up repeatedly since the initial estimate… Read More ›
